New buildings, new programs and a twentieth anniversary were all part of the fall and spring semesters. For all of these reasons, the 1986 Oak staff selected " Reaching for a New Image " as the theme for this yearbook. We hope that we captured the memories of this ever-chang- ing university for the present and for the future.

The Student Union, now called the HUB (S. Trevor Hadley Union Building) had finally been completed. The modern facility has several study areas, a multi-purpose room, an lUP mem- orabilia shop and an attached recreation center. The Co-op Bookstore, the bank, the information desk and Roy Rogers also remained in the build- ing along with student offices. Also completed this year w as Sally B.

The 1986 Big Indian football team thrilled fans with an 8-2-1 record. They captured the PSAC Western title for the first time since 1 965. The women ' s cross country team also brought honors to lUPas they captured third place at the NCAA Division II National meet; making every team member an All American. Other lUP teams improved as coaches and ath- letes worked hard to improve their records. lUP grew academically as well. In the fall, lUP celebrated 20 years as a university. lUP was chosen as one of the 221 colleges and universities to appear in " The Best Buys in Col- lege Education " , a New York Times publication by Edward B. Fiske. lUP has approximately 12,000 undergraduate students and ranks fifth in the state in under- graduate enrollment. Whether academics or sports, lUP is always striving for improvement.

Prep, " Madonna look, " Punk and Ramho look have slowly died out within time, but one can see a few original survivors on the lUP cam- pus. The attitudes created by the new fads in- clude independence and " do what you want " outlook upon life. The " spruced-up " look is in style for both gen- ders. More men are wearing solid-color pleated pants, striped shirts with a collar clip and thin ties. The hair style for men is conservatively short, particularly along the sides. The " Miami Vice " show had an outstanding impact on the dress code for nnen. Don Johnson created the " Ratso Chic " look which is the two-day-old beard, T-shirt or Rounded Neck shirt, jacket and dress pants. For the ladies, the shin-length knit skirts, soft-flowered blazer, and satiny blouses create a " fresh " look. Another stylish outfit is the shaker sweater with flowered black pants or stir-up pants. The style of blouses include graphic I prints, stripes, dots and paisley prints. The pas- tel shades, such as soft pinks, yellows and blues are a new clean image rather than the fluorescent colors of last year. A popular item of jewel- ry is the broach, which is worn with al- most any combina- tion of blouses or sweaters.

John Sutton Hall, now registered as a national landmark, was the only building jpn campus and served all functions. The experi- mental spring semester was considered a suc- cess, and the school began to grow and develop. In 1927 Indiana State Teachers College emerged. With it came a new grading system, which used quality points and students needed to maintain a " C " average to stay in school. As the university grew, buildings were added to the campus and more niajors were added to the college. Also, in 1959 the school began a graduate studies program with an enrollment of 74 students. The school ' s name changed again in 1960 to Indiana State College which showed the expan- sion and movement to a multi-purpose college. Also during this time Dr. Willis Pratt, presi- dent, initiated a campus expansion plan which would add 30 new buildings to campus within the nfixt ten years. In 1962, the Punxsutawney branch campus was founded and the Kittanning campus follwed in 1963. Then, in 1964, work began by Indiana administration and Sen. Al- bert R. Pechan to promote Indiana State College to a university. On January 25, 1 965 Sen. Pechan introduced Senate Bill 1; " An act providing for the estab- lishment and operation of the Western Pennsyl- vania State University, Indiana, Pennsylvania. " The bill was then referred to the Committee on Education, which visited the campus in the win- ter of 1 965 along with the Commission on High- er Education. The groups decided that the school should receive university status. On Nov. 16, 1 965, House bill 1 023 passed the House of Representatives, and the Senate Bill 1 passed two weeks later. On December 16, 1965, the bill was signed into law and " Indiana Uni- versity of Pennsylvania " began. Today, lUP has more than 12.800 students who come from every county in the Common- wealth of Pennsylvania, several other states and txnore than 40 foreign countries. The university has seven colleges and two schools. Within the 40 departments of the Uni- versity, students can study more than 100 majors. P From the beginning of the Normal School to the road of becoming a University, Indiana has flourished and met the challenges it faced and with confidence advances toward the future.

Above: Bright heb- um-fiiled maroon and slate balloons were found around campus during the lUP birthday week. UP celebrated its 20th anniversary of receiving university status with activi- ties running November 3-8. During the week of celebration, students, fac- ulty and alumni participated in various events to honor the hard work and dedication that re- sulted in Indiana State College becoming Indi- ana University of Pennsylvania. The week ' s events began on Sunday with a 20th anniversary dinner recognizing trustees and faculty that were involved with lUP 20 years ago. Among the guests were the families of Dr. Willis E. Pratt, Sen. Albert R. Pechan and Rep. William Buchanan. Tuesday ' s activities featured a student cele- bration from 1 1:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Through- out the day, refreshment booths were located in various areas throughout campus. At 6 p.m., a banquet was held for student orga- nization leaders, and at 8 p.m., a student air- band contest in Fisher Auditorium ended the day ' s events. " The purpose of the day was not to disrupt what we are here for but to make students aware, " said Barbara Ender, chairperson of the related events sub-committee. On Friday the week ' s activities came to a close as Dr. John D. Welty officially became the new president of lUP. At 2 p.m., the investiture convocation began. Honored guests and speakers included past university presidents, the presi- dent of the council of trustees, chairman of the University Senate and the president of the Stu- dent Government Association.

The students have changed too. Today it ' s hard to distinguish between most freshmen and upperclassmen. The days of the freshman " beanie " and name cards are long gone. So are the days of a lOc slice of pizza and " cat eye " glasses. Today ' s students pay a dollar for a slice of pizza and sport " wayfarers. " Few students would want to go back to 1 965 but it ' s interest- ing to see how things changed. - Cynthia Carmickle All pictures on this page were taken from the 1965 Oak. edJ Tor d New Image 1 7 18 Activities hat would university life be like without activities? It would be hard to imagine life at lUP without movies, concerts, plays, speakers or parties. Activities brighten up the worst of times. It ' s amazing what a funny movie or good show can do to make life seem a little easier. lUP ' s activities run the gambit — from Homecom- ing to the Block Party, and everything in between. No matter what a students interests might be, there ' s sure to be something for him or her at lUP. Activities Editor BECKY LIGHT FIND OUT what mdkes the Activity Board tick .... Page 34-35.

Activities 19 HOMECOMING FESTIVITIES BRING FAIRY TALES TO LIFE Old friendships are renewed, memories relived and new addresses and telephone numbers exchanged. These are just a few of the features of a Homecoming celebra- tion at lUP. A Homecoming Carnival on the lawn next to Stapleton Library kicked off the Homecoming festivities. Student organiza- tions set up boothes and foodstands to raise money and to promote themselves. Despite steady drizzle and showers, the annual Homecoming Parade continued as scheduled.

Shriners, local high school bands and other Indiana County organizations helped to make the parade shine festive through the dismal day. The Homecoming King and Queen ceremony also brightened the day. Kathy Opalisky from Shiremanstown and Dana Caruso from Yardley reigned as this year ' s gueen and king. Kathy reflected, " I was thrilled with the honor, but I think my dad was even more excited than I was. " Dana said, " I was excited, thrilled be- cause it was an honor. There ' s only one king a year and I was him. " Kittanning ' s king and queen were Brenda Kaschalk from Mineral Point and Michael F. Monach from Levittown. Joe Bernarding from Pittsburgh and Sally Fer- ree from Wernersville were Punxataw- ney ' s king and queen. The highlight of the weekend was lUP ' s football victory against Clarion. The game secured lUP ' s Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference Western Divi- sion title and bolstered the Indian ' s hopes for state conference play. But the true meaning of Homecoming is the reunion of old classmates, and the pas- sage of time that brings about new experi- ences and changes. It is the gathering together of generation after generation of lUP ' s alumni to share their love and re- spect for their school. - Angie Fought i- 2% lUP MARCHING BAND . . . The 1985 lUP Marching Band, under the direction of Charles E. Casavant, is " a source of entertainment and pride for the university. " Dr. Casavant joined the lUP staff in 1976 and changed the face of the lUP Marching Band to one with a very diversified array of musical selections and a variety of shov s. They never perform the same show for the same audience. Their shows are made up of a different combination of over 12 musical selections. These include " Somewhere Over the Rainbow " which has a trumpet solo by Tom Deckavac and " We Are the World " with three solos: Jenny Good and Jenny Pepple, both on French horn; and George Wozniak on trumpet. Other songs include " Amazing Grace, " Chicago ' s " You ' re the Inspira- tion, " Tchiakovsky ' s " Sleeping Beauty, " " God Save the Queen, " and " Kafka " by the Manhatten Transfer. Each half-time show consists, on the av- erage, of three songs with the finale from " Saint-Saens Organ Symphony " as the opener. Before football games they perform a 30-minute show that is called their " Big Show. " During this they play about nine songs. This show included " Toccata " by Emerson, Lake and Palmer with a drum solo written by two band members. Bob McConnel and Tom Ray. Other percus- sion composers are Terry Bieler and Paul Rennick. The band also performed at festivals during many weekends of the football sea- son. These festivals have taken the band to Maryland and New Jersey. They have also done festivals in Pennsylvania such as those in Bradford, Baldwin and Mt. Lebanon. Putting together all these shows and getting the 200-member band together for performances takes a lot of work. There are a number of people who help Dr. Casavant get the band ready for their many performances. These include Dan Ebeling, executive drum major, and two assistant drum majors, Brad Genevro and Jeff Steiner. Two graduate assistants also help get the band together, Gary Ziek and Bob Carmella. Ziek also arranges songs for the shows along with Chris McDonald and Roy Mitchell. There is also a commanding officer, Tim Stienhauer, who is essentially the manag- er and makes sure everyone does their job. Assistant officers are Louise Marino and Jeff Steiner. Other instructors and section leaders for each division of the band also contrib- ute to the organization of getting the band ready for their numerous performances. -Maryann Kolenchak 22 Activities " A SOURCE OF ENTERTAINMENT AND PRIDE TO THE UNIVERSITY.

Lawrence, is set in England in 1918. Two young wom- en in the play, Jill Banford, played by Jenni Sanders, and Nellie March, played by Deb Wisniewski, have developed a close relationship while living on a farm. Jill is a frail, feminine character who centers her life around housework and shopping, while Nellie does all the work on the farm mcluding the repair work and hunting. Life has been difficult for the women. Top lell: Henry enjoys tea with Nellie and Jill. Top right: Nellie keeps Henry at bay. Middle Henry and Nellie argue at the woodpile. Bol torn: Henry Greinfel, played by Matt Giehl waits for the lox. They have sold their heifer, their chickens aren ' t laying eggs and a fox has been steahng the chickens. Then, Henry Greinfel, played by Matt Giehl, enters their lives. He is a strong young man who is on leave from the Ca- nadian Army for a week. The girls decide to take him m, and he immediately begins to make changes in their lives. He catches pheasants for the girls to eat, fixes their barn and catches the fox. However, the plot develops as Henry begins to manipulate Nellie and eventual- ly convinces her to marry him. The final scene is emotion packed. As Henry, who is obsessed with the farm and hunting, picks a rifle and begins to point it at the girls and eventually shoots Jill. Nel- lie IS overcome with shock, and Henry comforts her by telling her the plans of their life together. The play was directed by Malcom Bowes of the lUP theater department, and the set was designed by Nadine Gra- bania, an lUP graduate student. The au- thentic-looking set was constructed from scratch by lUP students. " After the show, members of the audi- ence would touch the walls to see if they were real, " Cheri Meiser, stage manager, said. This year " The Fox " was the theater department ' s entry for the American Col- lege Theater Festival. - Barbra Smergalski 24 Activities " THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM " fMI HUN Some down-home, rip-rodring country fun was presented in TheaterBy-The- Grove ' s musical production of " The Rob- ber Bridegroom. " The country flavor was obvious from the moment one entered the theater which was transformed into a barnyard, com- plete with hay and other country fixin ' s. Even the band wore blue jeans and flan- nel shirts and played on a make-shift hayloft. The show, which took place in and around Rodney, Mississippi in the early 18CXD ' s, centered around the activities of the two main characters, Jamie Lockhart and Rosamund Musgrove. After Jamie saves Clemment Musgrove ' s life, Clem- ment takes Jamie home to meet his daugh- ter, Rosamund. Although Jamie might seem like a nice young man with good intentions, he only wants to marry Rosa- mund to become part of the wealthy Mus- grove family. The plot thickens as Salome, Rosa- mund ' s wicked and jealous stepmother, sends Rosamund into the dangerous woods. Here Rosamund meets up with a robber who steals her new clothes. After another meeting in the woods, Rosamund spends the night with the mysterious rob- ber and they fall in love. Unfortunately, Rosamund doesn ' t know that the robber is Jamie m disguise and Jamie, alias the robber doesn ' t realize that the girl is Rosamund, and . . . Well, things do get a bit confusing, but of course ev- eryone lives happily ever after. The audience, who were encouraged to wear blue jeans and other country clothes, were a part of the scenery and almost became a part of the show as cast members spoke and sang to them. The cast did a superb job of communicating their country flair and boundless energy to the audience. From the evil Salome to her somewhat meek but comical husband Clemment, from the dashing Lockhart to the seeming- ly innocent Rosamund, all the parts were played beautifully. There were also added features such as a man who dragged his brother ' s talking head around in a trunk, a wise but ignored talking raven, and a sim- ple-minded boy named Goat whose method of speaking explains his name. " The Robber Bridegroom " gave the au- dience an opportunity to become lost in some country fun, and all who experi- enced the show left with a little country flavor in their hearts and a country tune in their heads. -Dana Smith Top lelt: Rosamund arw .

" The Dining Room " The Theater- By- The Grove ' s production of " The Dining Room " takes an entertain- ing look at 18 dming rooms of upper mid- dle class families across the United States. The play, written by A.R. Gurney Jr., was set in an elegantly furnished dining room and took place during the last 50 years from sunrise to sunset. Each scene gave an amusing and sometimes touching view into the lives of different families dur- ing various time periods. The six actors played an average of eight different parts throughout the play. These students were Barb Blackley, Chuck Conway, Angelica Bellomo, Ty- rone Dixon, Karen Seergae and Bob Carbonetti. The show began with a tape of about 60 excerpts from TV and radio broadcasts from the time period of the play. Some of these were " The Cosby Show, " " I Love Lucy, " Martin Luther King and " Dragnet. " Bob Carbonetti, one of the actors said the play was a good experience for him and, " It was a lot of work, but it was fun work. " -Maryann Kolenchak 26 Activities Top Left: " The Din ing Room ' provides insight into this family ' s life Top Right: A family celebra- tion IS portrayed in one scene Bottom: Another family ' s life is shown throu gh " The Dining Room. " it YENTL 95 Outstanding performances by every cast member made Theater-By-The- Grove ' s " Yentl " a very special production. Each character was convincingly por- trayed and brought the setting of late 19th century Polish villages to life. " Yentl " , not to be confused with the musical made popular by Barbra Strei- sand, is the story of a Jewish girl who abandons her female identity to study reli- gion and get an education, an opportunity denied to women in 19th century Poland. After the death of her father, Yentl, skill- fully portrayed by Debra Wisniewski, takes on the male identity of Anshul and goes off with the other scholars to study. She befriends the scholar Avigdor and eventually falls in love with him. Things then become complicated as Hadass, the woman who Avigdor was suppoed to mar- ry, falls in love with Anshul Yentl. Matthew Giehl brought warmth and feeling to the character of Avigdor and the youthful confusion of Hadass was brought to life by Donna Lubrano. Wis- niewski sailed smoothly through the com- plex character of Yentl Anshul, from a head-strong, independent young woman to a renzied boy lost in his own charade. The play, directed by Dr. Donald Eisen, was enhanced with the scenic and light- ing desigh of Mark Zetterberg. Other cast menbers included David R. Tabish as Yentl ' s father, ]eni Sanders as Rivka the matchmaker and Bill Martinak, Eric Wolf, Kevin Renshaw, D. Andrew Manuel, Keith Edwards, Richard Nowell, Noele Battick, David Kinkead and Andrew Bak- er as various townspeople and scholars. -Dana Smith Lett: Cast members of " Yentl " gather on- stage.

Activities 27 " HANSEL AND GRETEL " iMi MaMliii lMia lUP Music Theater presented " Hansel and Gretel " , an opera version of the chil- dren ' s story, Nov. 14-16 in Fisher Auditorium. This was first production specifically for children that the department has per- formed. The performances had to be adapted to the younger audiences by in- serting dialogue while keeping the music score intact, said Dr. Herbert Wildeboor. " We hope this will be the beginning of annual productions to children of West- ern Pennsylvania, " he said. A small cast and no chorus allowed for easy travel to the different school districts. There were two five-member casts which Top Leil: Wendy Rodgers as the Wicked Witch and her famed Gingerbread House. Top Right: Hansel and Gretel are held by the Wicked Witch. Middle: Hansel and Gretel argue with their mother. Bottom. ' Chris Sciullo as the father. included: Kathy Ciampa as Hansel, Alyce Grimm and Karen Hartman as Gretel, Beth Hinkle and Julie Kemper as the mother, Chris Sciullo and Michael Horowitz as the father and Craig Cramer and Wendy Rogers as the witch. " I had so much fun doing this musical for the kids. They loved it and they really got into it. They laughed and screamed the whole way through the play, " cast member, Julie Kemper said. Even though the opera applied mostly to children it was enjoyed very much by all ages. It gave the adults in the audience a chance to go back and enjoy part of their childhoods all over again. According to Wildeboor, the scenery and costumes were professionally done for the lUP Music Theater in the studios cf Roy King and Associates, West Islip, N.Y. The production staff for the productions included: Roy King, stage director; Hugh Johnson, music director; Herbert Wilde- boor, producer; Bill Stabnau, stage man- ager and Kristie Dearing, accompanist. The proceeds from the show went to the music scholarship fund. Partial funding for the show came from the concessions committee of the Student Cooperative Association. -Lesley Holton 28 Activities " SOUTH PACIFIC " Wi iR 1 Kl f A r ' y F- H i - " lUt m B H r If Vwl ' " Ib H I nHi ■ - i i HH lUP ' s Music Theater Department pre- sented Rodgers and Hammerstein ' s " South Pacific " on Jan. 30, 31 and Feb. 1 in Fisher Auditorium. The cast of 45 was headed by Alice Grimm as Nellie Forbush, Robert McCon- nell as Emile de Becque, Jim Furlong as Lieutenant Cable and Barbara Stahl as Bloody Mary. The realistic, lavish scenery which took the audience effectively to a South Pacific island was provided by Roy King and Associates. They are a New York based company of consultants who tour the country provid- ing in addition to scenery, costumes and professional technical assistance for oper- atic and dramatic productions. Dr. Hugh Johnson of the lUP Music De- partment conducted the orchestra, which included 30 students. Dr. Herbert Wildeboor also of the lUP Music Department was the producer for the production. This was his last produc- tion before retiring, after 20 years with lUP ' s music depjartment. " This production was very special to me because of the number of people that worked on it. It was the most elaborate and best produced production we ' ve done, " Wildeboor said. " More profession- als were involved in this than any other production. We have wanted this type of production for 20 years. Now that we ' ve done it, great things are ahead for the Music Theater Department. " All of the people involved with the pro- duction put a lot of time and effort into it. which was evident after seeing " South Pacific. " It took place during World War II while American sailors and Marines took over an island in the South Pacific. Emile de Becque, a wealthy, middle- aged planter, moved to the island from France before the outbreak of the war. He falls in love with Ensign Nellie Forbush, an American nurse, and asks her to marry him. Nellie calls off the marriage when she learns of his previous marriage and his two children. Emile then decides to help Lt. Cable spy on a Japanese-held island nearby. Ca- ble is killed but Emile survives and returns to find Nellie caring for his two children. Cast members performed the songs in the musical expertly, such songs as: " I ' m Gonna Wash That Man Right Out-A-My Hair, " sung by Nellie and the nurses; " Bali-Hai, " by Bloody Mary; " Some En- chanted Evening, " by Emile. " It was a great feeling to end with such high achievement, " said Wildeboor about his last lUP production. - Lesley Holton Top Leit: The sailors enioy a momeni ol relax- ation and fun on the beach.

Sue and Pete (Alexander). " Pete Alexander, director of the lUP Co- op Store, told the crowd of about 750 that he would resign as pageant executive di- rector in June. " This may be the last year for Miss lUP if no one comes forward to take my place, " Alexander said. Junior marketing major Michel Wood was first runner-up. Wood, from Home, minors in music and she is co-captain of the lUP majorettes. Wood performed her own arrangement of Khachaturian ' s " Toccata " on the piano. The talent competition accounted for half of the judges ' scores. The seven min- ute interview held Saturday afternoon, the evening gown and swimsuit competitions accounted for the other half. Second runner-up, Kimberly Craft, sang " Don ' t Cry Out Loud. " Craft from Greensburg has participated in the lUP Singers and is a member of the Sigma Kappa Sorority. ■The seven other participants were soph- omore Kassie Slavin of McMurray, junior Bonnie Bendel of New Florence, senior Cheryl Cam of Middletown, seniors Lisa Boyle and Barb Tomedolskey of Pitts- burgh, junior Christine Papik of Valencia and sophomore Desiree Henning of Mechanicsburg. The show opened featuring the 10 con- testants in a dance to " Spies Like Us, " which was followed by the presentation of Miss lUP 1985, Yvette Walp. The entertainment for the evening in- cluded two dances performed by lUP ' s Concert Dance Club. Mr. lUP, Jeffrey Brooks, Walp, Chet Welsh, Ron Penny well and Greg Varner sang two Manhattan Transfer selections, " Trickle, Trickle " and " The Boy From New York City. " Walp sang " Don ' t Cry for Me Argenti- na " from " Evita. " Brooks also performed a solo. He sang " Somewhere Over the Rainbow. " Gary Bird and the lUP Jazzmen provid- ed the music for several of the talent selections. -Lesley Holton MISS BLACK lUP - ANGELA BURTON dr Miss Black lUP ot 1986, Angela Burton, was crowned April 5 in the HUB.

MR. lUP - JEFFREY BROOKS Fifteen contestants tried for Mr. lUP VI, only one received it, but the road leading to the finish was an exciting one. The excitement began with the 15 con- testants dancing their best to " I ' m So Ex- cited " by the Pointer Sisters. In the next competition, the 15 contes- tants presented themselves in swimwear which had the capacity crowd of primarily females cheering and screaming. The main event was the entertainment, and the crowd was definitely given a qual- ity show. The acts spanned from singing to dancing and even a comedy routine. The first contestant, Jeffrey Brooks, sponsored by Ladies and Gentlemen Qualified, received a standing ovation af- ter his rendition of " Somewhere Over the Rainbow. " A dance routine by Chris Lang, spon- sored by Alpha Sigma Tau, to " Jungle Love " had the female crowd screaming as he rolled across the stage. Other dancers included Darrin Wheeler, sponsored by lUP Sports Medicine and Health Physical Education Department and Dan Woodr- ing, sponsored by the lUP Cheerleaders. Additional singers were: Jim Gardell, Kappa Delta; John Womer, Delta Gamma; and Walter McCready, Phi Delta Theta. A comedy routine was also performed by Roger Peebles, sponsored by Whitmyre Hall. The next competition was the evening wear. Each of the men picked their own outfit which were by American Tuxedos. After a performance by comedian Chuck Conway and a few selections from Concert Dance, the five semi-finalists were named. They included: Jeffrey Brooks, Walter McCready, Chris Lang, Darrin Wheeler and Derek Lassiter. The crowd then received an interesting performance by Mr. lUP V, Mark Strate- gos, on his ukulele. After a brief question and answer peri- od, Darrin Wheeler was named Mr. Con- geniality of the pageant. Finally, the long awaited moment came as Jeffrey Brooks was announced as Mr. lUP VI. His first runner up was Darrin Wheeler. According to Beth Roberts, chairman MR. lUP VI, the program took a lot of hard work and received a lot of campus support. " It was great this year because more than Greeks sponsored people in the pag- eant, " Roberts said. " The guys were also very enthusiastic, were good sports and seemed to have a good time with it. " Roberts said that approximately $2,500 was raised at the pageant. One hundred dollars of that amount will go to Alpha Gamma Delta Founders Memorial Fund and the remaining amount will be donat- ed to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. - Barbra Smergalski 32 Activities Top Lett: The new Mr. lUP, Jeffrey Brooks.

" A. " Reach under the table and pull it up myself. " Q. " If you were a piece of clothing, what would you be? " A. " A T-shirt. " These questions and more were an- swered by contestants in the Dating Game sponsored by the Activities Board in No- vember. Debbie Greathouse, Scott Bla- sey, Darryl Davis, Lisa Crkvenac, Janet Kirchner, Bill Halloran, Mike Sample and Linda DeFazio all participated in the event. Georgia Gibson, coordinator of the game, said the contestants were chosen based on their applications and inter- views. " We picked the people who would ask good questions and put on good shows, " she said. The event was run just like the televi- sion version of the Dating Game, but fea- tured free dinners at Bruno ' s as prizes. One contestant, Janet Kirchner, said the game was fun, but the answers to the questions might have been too sexist. " The answers were a little sexist — they didn ' t show too much imagination, " she said. Debbie Greathouse ' s reaction was a lit- tle different. " I got a free dinner out of it. anyway, " she said, " and I don ' t think I ' d ever do it again because I think I embar- rassed myself.

Activities 33 ACTIVITIES BOARD: THE BOARD How many oi your weekends here at lUP were spent doing nothing? Not too many . . . You probably went to the $1 movies in Pratt Auditorium, come- dians or groups in Fisher Auditorium, TGIF ' s in the H.U.B. or Steady Mick ' s. For all these exciting activities we have the Activities Board (AB) to thank. AB is the student organization that sponsors the majority of the recreational, social and educational programs on the lUP campus. The purpose of AB is to pro- vide students, faculty and staff with a large variety of entertainment suited to all interests. The functions of AB are unique to only them. They offer the opportunity for stu- dents to join to help m any of the seven areas in AB. They are; film and video headed by Bill Halloran, recreation headed by Georgia Gibson, special programs headed by Debbie Greathouse, public relations me- dia headed by Bruce Thiel, public rela- tions graphics headed by Kim Greenfield, hospitality headed by Laurie Sullivan and contemporary music headed by Kenny Escher. The chairman of the AB for 1985-86 was Janet Kirchner. She was a senior market- ing major. She got involved with AB her sophomore year. " I liked if because we got to see all the movies free and I got to meet so many people, " Kirchner said. Kirchner is in charge of all aspects of AB. She oversees all decisions made by the other seven chairmen. These seven each have specific jobs which they are responsible for. Film and video chairman is in charge of choosing and ordering the movies. Recreation chairman is responsible for activities including mini-trips such as con- cert trips to Pittsburgh; the dating game; and buses for Thanksgiving, Christmas and spring breaks. The special programs chairman is in charge of presenting major speakers such as the comedians Andy Andrews and Tom Deluca. Public relations media chairman is re- sponsible for publicizing AB events through local and campus media such as The Penn, WIUP-TV, Rock 103 and the bulletin. The public relations graphics chairman is in charge of creating posters, flyers, banners, handbills and event programs to advertise all AB events. The hospitality chairman is responsible for all the room accomodations, menu planning and meal preparation for all AB guests such as the Sharks and Tina Fabrique. The contemporary music chairman is in charge of the music for all concerts and TGIF ' s. Each of these chairmen has a committee which works under them. Every detail about the event must be covered. The chairmen must attend weekly meetings as well as general membership meetings. All of this probably sounds like a lot of work. Why do these students bother? " It makes it all worthwhile when every- thing goes just right, " Kirchner said. " When we have a good turn out and peo- ple had fun, then we ' ve accomplished something. " These are not the only goals which AB attempts to attain. They have internal goals for all the members. They may give you an idea of what AB considers impor- tant for them to achieve. 1 - Get more members involved. 2 - Have fun 3 - Work closely with committee members 4 - Get feedback from students about the events 5 - Have a knowledge of school policies 6 - Be creative 7 - Generate long range plans 8 - Collaborate with members and nonmembers 9 - Achieve true communi- cation and feedback 1 - Get a cohesive advertising campaign As you can tell AB takes a great deal of pride and seriousness in making their or- ganization professional and useful. They have been reaching for this image for a long time. AB received their name in 1973 when they signed a new constitution. Before 1973 AB was called Student Union Board. Even in the 1960 ' s they planned numer- ous activities such as a Dionne Warwick concert in 1967, a Peter, Paul and Mary concert, the Spanky and Our Gang con- cert, opera trips to Pittsburgh, weekly re- cord hops and University weekend (our spring weekend) which involved a stu - dent-faculty Softball game, a co-ed relay sack race, the three-legged race and a pie eating contest. As you can see, the events have changed along with the times but the main goal has always been there — to bring entertainment to the students, facul- ty and community. For this we thank AB. Their many hours of work and preparations give us at lUP many hours of enjoyment. -Lesley Holton 34 Activities This Page: Is it Cyndi Lauper or is it Airband?

Organizations ranging from the Judo Club to the Newman Center were present at the Fall 1985 Activities Fair. Sponsored by Student Development Programs, groups throughout campus were offered a chance to " be seen " by lUP students. There was no charge for participat ing in the fair; and the fair ' s sponsor supplied tables, chairs, table- cloths and helium-filled balloons. The organizations were asked to make their boothes " unigue " and " attractive " to draw students to the fair and to the indi- vidual organizations. More than 60 organizations participated in the October 31st event which was held in the multi-purpose room in the HUB. There were baked goods for sale, comput- er demonstrations, crafts and a magician, who was sponsored by the Activities Board. Kim Husenits, the Activities Fair Coor- dinator, said, " There was a lot of versatility as far as the activities the student organiza- tions offered. There were a lot of unique things. It (the fair) turned out nice. " - Cynthia Carmickle VC ,TN TieS FA P 36 Activities NIGHTCLUB OFFERS ALTERNATIVE Steady Mick ' s, lUP ' s non-alcoholic nightclub, opened last spring to offer stu- dents a bar-like atmosphere without the alcohol. BACCHUS, Boost Alcohol Conscious- ness Concerning the Health of University Students, sponsors the nightclub, which is located in the Hadley Union Building. Kelly Heryla, lUP ' s Coordinator of Chemical Health Programs and advisor to BACCHUS, said the " classy nightclub " offers non-alcoholic drinks such as da- quiris, pina coladas, and beer. Music is provided by disc jockeys and live bands. He also said attendance averages 200 stu- dents and when live bands perform, about 400-600 students come to listen and dance. Heryla said that Steady Mick ' s is " so- phisticated and not like a high school dance. " Mike O ' Connor, a Phi Sigma Kappa brother, who bartended at Steady Mick ' s one of the nights that the Phi Sigs ran the club, said he thought everyone had a real- ly good time and that it was " just like gomg to a dance club. " Although BACCHUS has only 25 mem- bers on the lUP campus, including stu- dent president Tim Vojtasko, it is involved with many other organizations. These in- clude fraternities, sororities, the Activities Board, RHA, and CAS. They work togeth- er with BACCHUS in cooperative pro- grams and get together and sponsor events. One such event is the haunted house sponsored with the Phi Delta Theta fraternity. The Phi Delts donated their house for two weeks to BACCHUS for the event. BACCHUS has been on the lUP cam- pus for a few years, but it had almost fallen apart until the Spring of 1985, when Steady Mick ' s opened, according to Her- yla. It is a national organization with about 300 chapters on college campuses. According to Heryla, BACCHUS is a " peer-based movement to help people begin making responsible decisions about alcohol use. " He said he feels this is highly affective in helping to control alcohol use on college campuses. Heryla added that the group and night- club have been well accepted by students and organizations on the campus. The group surveyed people that came to Steady Mick ' s and 99% of the students said they would return. According to Heryla, there have been no major problems with the nightclub. lUP ' s BACCHUS group has been nation- ally recognized by other colleges and asked to help organize groups on other campuses, such as Ohio State. - Maryann Kolenchak CREATURES HAUNT INDIANA It was a clear, chilly night. The lull moon cast a silvery shadow over the small town. A gentle breeze rustled the leaves laying on the ground and those few still hanging on the trees. At 10:00 p.m. they began to come out. They came from all directions. Clowns, witches, vampires, bums, punk rockers, devils, babies and nerds made the yearly Halloween festivities. Halloween celebrations originated with the ancient Druids. On the eve of All Saints Day, Nov. 1 , the Druids believed that the spirits of the dead roamed around, and they lit bonfires to drive them away. Even after Nov. 1 became a Christian feast day honoring all saints, the peasants main- tained old pagan beliefs and customs that had grown up about Halloween. It be- came a night of mystery and fun making, with many picturesgue superstitions. The people came to believe that they could foretell the future on that night by doing such things as jumping over lighted candles. Walking along the streets of Indiana this Halloween one would have seen many smiling pumpkin faces illuminated with candles. Ghosts, goblins, and scarecrows peeked out the windows of many houses and dorms along with black cats and witches. Halloween is one of the most celebrated holidays at lUP. It gives people a chance to disguise themselves and act as silly as they want to because no one will know who they are. Students begin brainstorm- ing for costume ideas weeks in advance. After deciding on a disguise, they search attics, closets and shopping malls for the necessary attire. Goodwill Industries is a popular place for lUP costume seekers. Many a Halloween costume has been put together from purchases at Goodwill. Once again when the " spooky night " arrived students donned their wigs, rub- ber noses, hats, black capes and false faces and headed uptown to the Hallow- een parties at Wolfendale ' s, Caleco ' s, Culpepper ' s and Al Patti ' s, All the bars had a full house ranging from babies to vampires. Halloween doesn ' t just last for one night at lUP though, it continues on into the weekend. From Oct. 31 to Nov. 2 one could see pirates, witches and hobos mak- ing their way to private Halloween parties around campus. A non-alcoholic Hallow- een party was held at Steady Mick ' s where prizes were given for the best costumes. At the first sign of daylight on Nov. 3, the vampires sink back into their graves, the ghosts fade into nonexistence, the candles in the pumpkins are extin- guished, and the Halloween decorations are put away. The wigs, rubber noses, fake vampire blood, and masks are packed away until they are needed the next Halloween to complete another scary disguise. - Holly Stoner Activities This page- Top Left: Tiie Devil ' s cohorts stop in for some socializing at the HUB.

You ' re rudely awakened by the sickening buzz of your alarm. Drag- ging yourself out of bed, you walk to the shower in a confused state. Upon your return, you flip on the radio to start your day with a little music. You ' re finally be- ginning to come to life on this dreary win- ter day. What ' s that? A list of cancellations coming up m just a few minutes? No, it can ' t be. It was clear last night, wasn ' t it? We weren ' t supposed to get any more . . . Snow? Slowly, you walk toward the win- dow, almost afraid of what you ' ll see. It looks as if at least six more inches of the white stuff. Now, depending on what type of per- son you are, your reaction to the snow could be anything from joy to despair. Shouts of enthusiasm are heard from the mouths of skiers, as they decide to blow off classes and hit the slopes at the Univer- sity ski lodge. Cries of disbelief sound from the students with 8:00 classes, for they know that soon they ' ll be crunching through the snow on the unplowed side- walks. Commuters cringe as they face yet another morning of shoveling out the car, the driveway and the sidewalk. Pull out the boots, mittens, scarves, ear- muffs and umbrellas as you prepare to enter the " winter wonderland " that jack Frost so graciously has left for us once again. (Speaking of umbrellas, do you re- member when you used to roll in the snow, never caring about how wet you were? Imagine the looks that you would have received from your parents if you had asked for an umbrella so you wouldn ' t get wet?) Although you ' re warm now, al- most to the point of being hot, as soon as you step outside you ' ll realize that you should have put on that extra sweater. On your way to class, you ' ll probably cross as least one street in order to walk on a sidewalk that has mysteriously disap- peared under a blanket of snow. More than likely, you ' ll slip about three times in the Oak Grove. Perhaps you ' ll step in a mound of snow and engulf your entire leg. Or maybe, just maybe, you ' ll find a clear path and think you ' ve escaped the snow traps. Not so. A gentle wind dumps a huge clump of snow right smack on the top of your head. What a fun way to start your day. Snow provides a great excuse for day- dreaming during class, if you ' re lucky enough to sit near a window. From this spot, you should have more than ample opportunity to watch the activities in the snow. You discover that trying to refrain from laughing as you watch a person slip or fall is quite difficult. A bunch of guys bomb each other with snowballs, while the girls do everything in their power to get as far away as possible. Later that evening, after you ' ve cau- tiously walked back to your room, and have shed all those extra clothes, you pre- pare to study. Your desk is clear, you ' re all dry and you ' re all set to begin your all- nighter for your 8:00 exam. That is, of course, until your neighbors decide that it ' s time for a marathon snowball battle. At first, you ' re able to discipline yourself to stay out of it, but then you realize that you have all night to study, right? A little bit of fun can ' t hurti It ' ll only take a few minutes. Of course, while you ' re out there, it only seems like a few minutes. In reality, it ' s a few hours. When you return, you change clothes (again) and sit down at your desk. You start to think about how you became so tired. Maybe it was all that walking in the snow ... A little bit of rest is all you need. Take a nap, and hope that you can get up in time to study. There doesn ' t seem to be a great deal of profs that will accept your feeble excuse of, " Well, re- member when you were in school and there was a big snowball battle and ...

The air is fresh and crisp, the flowers and trees are in bloom and the white chill of winter iS ' tucked away for another year. While mother nature took care of the weather, lUP students were doing their own things to say goodbye to the winter blahs and welcome in the spring. At lUP, students seem to have a knack for skipping right over spring and jump- ing into summer. At the first sign of warm- er weather, winter clothes are shed and exchanged for jean jackets and an occa- sional pair of Jams. While some students must adapt slowly to the shock of beautiful weather, others are filling lUP ' s " beach- es " in hopes of an early tan. Once this spring (or summer) fever hits the campus, priorities are re-established. Being the tannest on the floor seemingly becomes more important than studying for those finals. Of course some students try to study under the sun. But their good intentions are usually clouded by Copper- tone and baby oil. No matter what seaon lUP decides comes after winter, the campus definitely comes alive with the warm weather. The Oak Grove is once again filled with squir- rels and the infamous Bagel Wagon reap- pears. Students can be found congregat- ing outside of the library and Leonard Hall and practicing their favorite sports of frisbee and hackeysack. Spring is also the time of year for intra- murals. Such dignified athletic clubs as Dead Meat and Dirty Dealers along with fraternities and sororities participated in volleyball, pool, waterpolo, Softball, wal- leyball, tennis and table tennis. Once the weather cooperates, students can also be found at Mack Park or using the facilities at Yellow Creek. Thoughts of the Ski Lodge are traded for sailing, row- ing and canoeing. One last thing that cannot be forgotten is romance. Spring brings thoughts of walks hand-in-hand, cozy picnics for two, and various other indoor activities. As the lUP population comes out of winter hibr- nation, they remember that there are oth- er people out there, and finding Mr. or Miss Right becomes a main goal. Whether you fancy sunbathing or sail- ing. Jams or jeans, spring is definitely the season at lUP. -Dana Smith m 42 Activities ESCAPADES 01 ' ' Previous Page: Top Lett: Spring has come to lUP.

The three act comedy, billed across campus as " uproariously funny " , gave a backstage view of what it takes to put a show together. In the opening act, the cast was franti- cally rehearsing for opening night. Lines were forgotten, cues were missed and the Top lelt: Poppy corrects Gary and Dotty on their acting. Top right: Dotty hands over a plate of sardines to Gary as Brooke gazes off into space. Middle: Lloyd tries to straighten out the casts latest mistake. Bottom: Brooke loses her dress and her modesty. props didn ' t work. As the mistakes were made, a voice from the back of the auditorium echoed corrections. Midway through the act, Noel Harrison, the show ' s star, made his way down to the stage. Harrison played Lloyd Dallas, the show ' s director. He tried to calmly correct the cast, [Patricia Kilgarriff, John Rensenhouse, Lydia Laurans, Mary Portser, Hugh A. Rose, Carolyn Porter, Berry Cooper, Moultrie Patten], who co- micaly blundered through the final dress rehearsal. The second act switched the scene to the backstage of the show. The inter-actor romances, once sweet, had soured, and jealousy and revenge had set in. The ac- tors backstage sabotaged the actors on stage in as many ways as they could. The third act took the scene back to a " regular " performance. The audience witnessed all the backstage handy work they saw in Act II and what it did to the actors on stage. The laughter seldom stopped as the actors fought their way through broken props, forgotten lines, and jealous glares from their fellow players. " Noises Off " gave those who saw it a new perspective on what goes into a pro- duction, and perhaps they ' ll think twice about what is going on behind the scenes the next time they see a show. - Cynthia Carmickle 44 Activities " A CHRISTMAS CAROL " pL I H 1 1 -4 t V H The Indiana Arts Council and lUP Artist Series presented The Nebraska Theatre Caravan in Charles Dickens ' " A Christ- mas Carol " on Dec. 11, 1985. Fisher Auditorium glowed with the Christmas spirit as students, faculty and townspeople enjoyed the performance of Patrick McCarthy as Ebenezer Scrooge. The feeling of Christmas was height- ened by the carol, " God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen " which opened the play. Scrooge was led through his past, pre- :. ' nt and future Christmases by ghosts of each. As the legendary story goes, the three succeeded in showing Scrooge the meaning of Christmas. The costumes, designed by Tom Crisp and Kathryn Wilson, of all the cast were intriguing and eye-catching especially those of the three ghosts. This added to the audience ' s enjoyment of the produc- tion which they showed with their enthusi- astic applause. The scenery, designed by James Oth- use, was realistic looking. The music di- rector was Terry Alford. The play was di- rected by Carl Beck and choreographed by Joanne Cady. By the end of the presentation the audi- ence was filled with the Christmas feelings usually only experienced by children. - Lesley Holton Top left: Cast opens the show with " God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.

Aclivities 45 AN ADDED TOUCH WKK ' F " yW ' K B Hl l M lUP was host to a number of guest speakers, dance companies, rock con- certs and broadway shows during the year. Alexander Haig, Cory Hart, May- nard Ferguson and the Jeffrey II Dancers were just a few of the celebreties that ap- peared on campus this year. Most of the shows are sponsored by the Activities Board and the Indiana Artist Se- ries, and all are open to the general public with I-card holders receiving discounts on tickets. Along with the college-oriented activities these shows, lectures and con- certs give that added touch that makes college life a unique experience. -Becky Light This page:Top Left: Corey Hart rocks the stage in Fisher Auditorium.

And so why not combine these two activi- ties into one? Someone did and formed one of the best-known college traditions - tailgaiting. lUP tailgates support the reputation lUP has earned of " knowing how to party.

At half time partiers return to grab a cold beer to cool off if the day is hot, or something to warm the blood in cold weather. After the game the parking lot turns into a large arena of celebration as the Indians win yet another game in their impressive season. Supporting the lUP football team is only a part of the tailgating spirit. An atmo- sphere of fun and partying pervades the festivities. According to Ellen Hozak, a ju- nior chemistry major, " Tailgates are a great time. They ' re a great way to meet people. " On special occasions such as Home- coming tailgates carry even more mean- ing. Alumni return to meet with old friends they haven ' t seen in years, meet new students and see what their alma ma- ter is like after years of being away.

As you peer out the corner of the shade you hope for that split second th at " mother na- ture " was on your side last night and she melted all the snow and raised the tempera- ture to above freezing. You never thought about the weather last spring when you and your friends checked out this apartment on Philadelphia Street. All you could think of were no " caf " food, extra space and especially— NO RULES. The possibilities were end- less . . . parties, privacy and even eating breakfast in your P.J. ' s. Well, the possibilities were endless alright . . . and so are the responsibilities. The responsibilities clutter your mind as you force your- self into the shower so you can make it to your first class. " Why is it that every time I want milk for my cereal there ' s none to be found. When am I going to get to the store? Oh we ' re out of bread too! " One of your four room- mates walks into the kitchen as you finish mumbling. " What are you talking about? " , she says. " Nothing " , you mutter. " Who ' s in the bathroom now? " you ask as you stand by the door listening to the shower run. " Why does she always lock the door? All I want to do is brush my teeth. I guess I ' ll just be late for my 8 o ' clock class. " Finally, you ' re off. You wonder for about the fifth time today why you moved out of the dorms. You were so close to your classes, you never had to wait to get in the bathroom and if you got sick of your roommates you just went to visit someone down the hall. Well, as the day goes on you begin to feel better. You head home with a new out- look on apartment life. It ' s your night to make sup- per so you decide to make your mom ' s famous tuna cas- serole recipe. " This is gross, " one says. " Yuck, " another contrib- utes as she chokes. The other two just sit and stare. After everyone manages to find something in the frig for supper you are all sitting around the living room study- ing and watching T.V. at the same time (since, of course, you all can ' t agree). Now, you think to yourself, this is what living on your own IS all about. Sitting around doing what ever you want with friends. Then one of your room- mates says, " What are we go- ing to do about the broken furnace and the clog in the bathroom sink? " as the other three stare at you as if it was all your fault that the sink is clogged and the furnace is broken. " I told you, I called the last three times. I refuse to call the landlord and tell him something else is broken, " you shout back as you button the top button on your winter coat. This may not be the best time to take a stand on this issue you think to yourself. But maybe this time they ' ll break down and one of them will take the responsibility. It wouldn ' t be so bad if you didn ' t have to be the one who always figures out the phone bill, makes sure the bills are paid on time, works out the cooking schedule and makes sure there are enough groceries in the apartment. Well, you think to yourself after everyone has gone to bed, " I guess apartment life isn ' t all that bad. We do get to have parties and eat whatev- er we want whenever we want. So we argue over who does the dishes and who is going to run to the store. " Believe me, it ' s all worth it when this place becomes yours. No matter how much of the paint if peeling off the walls and how old the appli- ances are, it ' s still yours. Off-campus living is some- thing everyone should expe- rience. The responsibilities accompany the benefits but you learn how to handle them and that ' s all part of the fun. - Lesley Holton 52 Lilestyles Some called it the little brown house. To others, it was Walden of Doonesbury fame, where one could pursue the elusive life of pure hedonism. We called it " The Shack. " Upon finding the Shack ear- ly in ' 82, we knew the Shack would rob us of our academic souls, not to mention irrepaira- ble cellular brain damage. During this colinizational peri- od, we developed mto our own subculture, taking under our wing people cast out by society; once befriended, a cold Old Milwaukee awaited them by the hearth. During this early phase of Shack life, sleep was of prime importance. One o ' clock classes were just too early to be dealt with. This lust for sleep, some outside observers noted, was due to our long and pains- taking study habits. Not so. Rather, it was the effects of Donkey Kong, Frogger and other controlled substances which kept the Shacksters alive and kickin ' well after dawn. Music gave the Shack its spirit and meaning. One could hear anything from Bach to Zappa during the course of our infamous parties. Plastic party- goers who reguested Madon- na or Prince were physically removed, taken to the yard and repeatedly flogged. Van Halen albums were crucified on the walls. Phi! Collins and Bruce Springsteen were burned in effigy. Shack gradu- ates (they do exist) were often quoted as saying music gave them the power to party on, amidst the most trying of times. Then there was " The God, " whose daily output of video garbage satisfied our cravings for non-intellectual stimuli. Wars over " The God " were frequent and bloody. Steeler games which coincided with the World Series caused more than one skirmish during the course of the afternoon. The same held true with General Hospital and the Hillbillies. Whether we were busy or not, due respect and homage were given to " The God " on a daily basis. Alas, graduation is upon me and my days at the Shack are over. Others will follow in our footsteps, hopefully in the same style and manner in which we existed. The Shack, as an institution will not be the same without us, nor we with- out it. But as one former Shack member said upon leaving, " The true test of an institutiori is how it deals with change. " For the benefit of future Shack members, I pray the spirit of the Shack endures. -Ed Boito Fowlgeeze, George. The An- als. Dec. 9, 1983. Lileslyles 53 54 Lifestyles Dorna Life Has Ups And Dovrns The time: 2 a.m., late Sep- tember, 1985. The place: An lUP resi- dence hall (choose your favorite). As you finally begin to drift off to sleep after a long night of studying, BOOM! You are awakened by the first note on volume 10 of your next-door neighbor ' s stereo. You resign yourself to the fact that it ' s go- ing to be another long night, and as you try to calm your nerves from the initial shock, you lose yourself in memories of a few weeks ago when you first entered the DORMITO- RY ZONE . . . Yes, it ' s day one of fresh- men orientation. You ' ve just arrived and are waiting to move into the dorm. You ' re a little tense, but also very ex- cited over the thought of meeting so many new peo- ple. Your first get together with the other residents on your floor is that night ' s " mandatory " hall meeting. " This is great, " you say to your roommate, who is hav- ing trouble concealing her boredom. After a yawn, she tells you that her sister lived in this dorm and it really isn ' t so great after all. But, being an optimistic freshman, you tell her otherwise. " Just think, " you tell her, " we ' ll meet so many great people and do things togeth- er and form friendships that will last a lifetime. " Your roommmate laughs and tells you that she would rather choose her own friends than be forced to share a bathroom with 50 oth- er girls that she had to meet through some mandatory hall meeting. You can tell it ' s go- ing to be an interesting year, but you smile and try to make the best of it. Two weeks later, classes have begun and so has study- ing. Unfortunately, when you want to study, the floor wants to party, and being the socia- ble type, you don ' t mind sac- rificing your studies for just one night. One night turns into two, and before you know it, the weeks have gone by and you haven ' t accom- plished a thing. Enter hall meeting number two, and the establishment of " quiet hours " which are usu- ally around 1 1 p.m. when the floor is just getting its second wind. " Why don ' t you just pack an overnight bag and crash in the library for the night? " your roomie asks. Not a bad idea, but you know it wouldn ' t work. In- stead, you and your room- mate decide to console your- selves with thoughts on where to live next year. " If we lived in a house, " she says, " we wouldn ' t have to listen to other people ' s rules. " We could eat what we want to, when we want to and have our own private bathroom. " " But what about all the people we ' re meeting? " you ask her. " And we don ' t have to cook, or clean our own bathroom. We ' re right in the center of the action on cam- pus. If we move to an apart- ment, we ' ll be pretty far away, and we ' ll have to walk in the cold to our classes, and we ' ll have to go grocery shopping, and to the laun- dromat, and ... " Back in the present, it ' s now 3 a.m. " How could I pos- sibly have wanted to stay in the dorms? " you ask yourself, over the stereo. Although dorms aren ' t for everyone, some people actu- ally do like them. There are actually juniors and seniors who still live there, and, be- lieve it or not, some students even come back to the dorms after living off-campus for a year. These students usually find that the responsibility of run- ning an apartment or house are too great, and they de- cide to go back to the dorms where they have fewer things to worry about. But out of all the students who live in the dorms, about 50% are freshmen or trans- fers. They are guaranteed housing, while other students must participate in a random selection process. Students shouldn ' t be discouraged if they end up in the last group to be placed in a residence hall because there is usually enough housing for every- one who desires it. Obviously, the choice of dorms vs. off-campus hous- ing is a personal preference. Even if off-campus housing wins out over life in the " dor- mitory zone, " college life just wouldn ' t be complete with- out dorm life. Just think, there is no challenge to break any rules when you live in your own place! -Dana Smith Angle Fought Lileslyles 55 Commuter Students More Than Elements No parking signs, walking in the rain, dodging pedestrians, icy roads, parking permits . . . These terms are familair to the 8,000 commuter students of lUP. A commuter student in- cludes all individuals who do not live within the boundaries of the campus. These individ- uals resort to other means of transportation, such as walk- ing, cars, bicycles and motor- cycles. Of these 8,000 stu- dents, 2,400 individuals need parking permits for on-campus parking. Finding a place to park a ve- hicle can be a very frustrating experience, especially at 7:45 a.m. when the commuter is rushing to an 8:00 class. There are several parking areas on campus: Memorial Field House Stadium, Student Union, Pratt Drive, Shafer Hall, Stonewall, Esch and Stright lots. Every now and then, one will see a bright orange park- ing boot connected to the back wheel of a vehicle or those " dreaded " slips of yel- low paper stuck behind a windsheild wiper. But, accord- ing to Eugene Thomas, traffic officer for campus police, " This year parking has been better than the past years.

Approximately 1,045 adult students are at- tending lUP and more than 1 00 students are living on cam- pus. These students are seek- ing to further their knowledge for a better career. The Adult Student League, a campus recognized organi- zation for the " non-traditional aged students " , began in 1982 on the lUP campus. This orga- nization offers support by pro- viding a liason between adult students and the lUP adminis- tration. Also, they provide a friendly social environment with others that share a com- mon bond. This association provides information about: child care, typewriters, com- puter terminals, copy ma- chines, telephones and television. " Some adult students have a hard time adjusting to college life. Many problems deal with having a 18 19 year old as a roommate, " said Doug Had- bavny, president of the Adult Student League. The league is trying to pass a proposal for a resident hall floor in Whitmyre Hall for older students, -Debbie Hackman Top lett: Many ddull students are also commuters.

Lifestyles 57 " UCC ' s Strike BURGER KING It ' s 11:30 p.m., you ' re sit- ting on your bed trying to catch up on the three weeks of Geography reading you let slide by since your last test. You know you shouldn ' t have let yourself get behind, and now you ' re determined to memorize three conti- nents, their countries, their capitals and major industries before tomorrow ' s mid-term. You keep telling yourself, " I ' m not doing anything until I ' m finished studying. " Then it hits, a growl comes from the depths of your stom- ach. You begin to hear a small voice chant, " FEED ME! FEED ME! " You are about to become a victim of a UCC or an " Wiidentified Cbllegiate Qaving. " You rush to the refrigera- tor; milk, bread, eggs, left- over meatloaf, apples, cheese and a bottle of kethcup. You slam it shut, the UCC has placed a major limitation on you — nothing in the refrig- erator, pantry, vending ma- chine or care package from your grandmother will satisfy you. A UCC makes you hungry for the only foods you don ' t have in your house, apartment or dorm room. Your eyes are beginning to glaze over, you can ' t decide just what you ' re hungry for but you know you ' ll have to leave your studying to go get it. You reach into your wallet and pull out a five dollar bill. You give your roommate an evil smile, you put on your coat and head outside on your munchie mission. As you ' re walking through the dark, visions of sugar plums and pizzas dancing in your head, you decide you ' ll do the best thing possible in Students . . . this situation, make a " Sheetz Run. " You walk five blocks. You see the red and yellow lights blazing in the darkness. Your pace quickens, you ' re at the door .clutching your five dol- lar bill you rush inside. Now your UCC takes over, you grab three packs of Tas- tykakes, a bag of Combos, a 32 oz. Coke, two hot dogs.a Klondike bar and a super- sized Snickers bar. You go to the check-out counter. The clerk gives you a dirty look, the kind of look your mother used to give you when she caught you eating Oreos before dinner. The register tallies up $4.98. It was close, you hand the clerk your money and happily leave with your bag. When you return to your apartment, you spill your treasure onto your bed (ex- cept for the Klondike bar which you ate on the way home). You get another dirty look, this time from your roommate as you begin your feast. In fifteen minutes flat your pig-out is over. Your bed looks like the ground under the bleachers after a football game, wrappers are thrown everywhere. You belch con- tently, your roommate turns pale with disgust. It ' s now 12:27 am, maybe you should get back to your Geography. Licking the chocolate off your fingers, you prop your book on your bulging stomach and chubby knees. What life! You think of all you ' ve eaten and say to you roommate, " If Pizza House is still delivering, do you wanna split a pepperoni, mushroom and onion pizza? " -Cynthia Carmickle Friend- ships Form lUP ' s two branch campuses are located in Punxsutawney and Kittanning. Both are with- in 30 miles of Indiana. The branch campuses offer (general education classes in- tended for those students plan- ning to complete their studies at the main campus. The Punx- sutawney branch campus of- fers an associate degree in Criminology, which is not of- fered at the main campus, and one in Business as well. The Armstrong County (Kittan- ning) campus offers graduate level courses and a certifica- tion in the field of real estate under the school of contmuing education. The number one reason for students attending the branch campuses is the social world. With the Armstrong county campus enrolling 450 students and 250 in Punxsutwaney, stu- dents make closer friends and peer groups are easily formed. " I feel one of the strong points of the branch campuses is that they are much smaller, " Mark Anthony, assistant to the director, said. " The students get to know their instructors and each other a lot better. " Another way students bene- fit from the branch campuses is by participating in extracurric- ular activities. The Armstrong county cam- pus has its own student gov- ernment association, which plans activities such as dances, parties and movies. Both cam- puses have s tudent union facil- ities which offer students pool tables and pmg pong tables. Punxsutawney ' s campus has two outdoor tennis courts, an outdoor basketball court and a Softball field. Students partici- ' pate in intramural teams on both campuses. Students live in the resi- dence halls, one for males and one for females, which are lo- cated on both campuses. Stu- I I q 60 Liiestyles dents are also free to live off ipus in rooming houses 111 J apartments if they so desire. The branch campus stu- dents definitely bring the benefits of the branch campus- es to the main campus.

September September was a month of tragedies world-wide. The devastating earthquakes which hit Mexico buried about 8,000 people under the rubble of the demolished build- ings in Mexico City. Earlier in the month another catastrophe occurred in England. The chartered British Airtouring Boeing 737 burst into flames killing 54 people. This crash made 1985 the worst single year in aviation. Nationally the country panicked as AIDs became more of a household word than ever. More children were being kept from schools as the controversy over how AIDS is transmitted continued. These children ac- quired the disease through blood transfusions. Locally at lUP, students returned back to school facing the threat of a strike. Strikes were abundant locally and in the county high schools. lUP students came back to a new student union, the Hadley Union Build- ing (HUB). This building included a com- plete recreation center with a dance studio and racquetball courts. lUP also hosted for- mer secretary of state, Gen. Alexander Haig, and the Dancetellers in September. As always, September was the big month for television show premiers. Not to much surprise, viewers were faced with many pro- grams cloning last year ' s smash, " The Cosby Show. " CBS started " Charlie and Compa- ny " with Flip Wilson. NBC aired " 227. " ABC premiered " Here ' s the Mayor " and the most blatant photocopy, " Growing Pains " with Alan Thicke. One premiere all the networks turned down was the airing of the contracep- tion advertisements. This " premiere " was taken over soley by the cable television stations. -Lesley Holton October October, as always, was a special month for all lUP students and graduates. This Oc- tober was no different. Homecoming was celebrated the week- end of the 18-20. The carnival, parade and football game (against Clarion) were damp- ened by rain. But the rain didn ' t keep the crowds away. Dedicated fans attended the game. Alumni from all over enjoyed the weekend festivities as they reminisced with friends, old and new. The festivities of homecoming weren ' t all that were celebrated this month . . . APS- CUF, students and parents celebrated after the proffessors accepted the contract on the 16 and 17 of the month, averting a strike. The new salary package called for restoration of 5 percent increase and a 4 percent increase 64 Retrospect across the board for all the faculty. They also received many non -salary improve- ments: an increase in medical coverage, life insurance increase, increase in accidental death insurance and others. Students at lUP " celebrated " the appear- ance of Canadian rocker, Corey Hart, in Fisher Auditorium on the 22nd. Some stu- dents who were really thrilled about Hart, camped outside of Pratt auditorium the night before the tickets went on sale. Other " hunks " , female lUP students went wild over were the contestants at the MR. lUP contest on the 28th. Jeff Brooks, the win- ner, sang an arrangement of " Somewhere Over the Rainbow. " All the contestants made the women scream when they danced to " I ' m So Excited. " But no one made them scream louder than Chris Lang when he danced to " Jungle Love. " lUP continued to celebrate as October winded down on Halloween. As usual, the campus was lit up from everything from tramps to vampires. Students enjoyed this opportunity to be as weird and strange as they wanted to be. In state-wide news, Anthony Mandia, 44, and his family were celebrating on the 18th after Mandia received the first Penn State heart, an artificial heart from the Hershey Medical Center. Doctors said that Mandia would have died within 72 hours if he did not receive the artificial heart. Nationally, the space shuttle, the Chal lenger, was set off into space on the 31st with the largest crew ever.

The 13-hour concert was carried by ABC and reached over 100 countries. The event included stars from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Madonna, U2, Duran Duran, Sting and David Bowie were just a few of the performers who contributed their tal- ents to the day. Jack Nicholson served as master of ceremonies; Tina Turner and Mick Jagger sang a hot duet; and Phil Collins flew across the Atlantic to perform at both the Philadelphia and London con- certs. Reuniting for the concert were Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young and Led Zeppelin. Other performances included folk singer Joan Baez, Bob Dylan and Pe- ter, Paul and Mary. Bob Geldof, leader of the Boomtown Rats and organizer of the Live Aid con- cert, received a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize for getting the show together. His involvement in famine relief began when he organized British acts for the song " Do They Know It ' s Christmas?

November was the month for Parents Day on the second. The highlight of the day was the Big Indian ' s 33-0 victory over Shippens- burg; this win gave them the PSAC West title. The first weekend in November was not the best for five lUP fraternities. The Pennsyl- vania Liquor Control Board raided five fra- ternities, bringing citations against nine indi- viduals for underage drinking. November 3 was the date for the fifth an- nual Anchor Splash sponsored by Delta Ganma. Phi Delta Theta and Alpha Sigma Tau were the winning fraternity and sorority. Proceeds benefited Aid to the Blind. On November 1 1 , lUP ' s military personal and various administrators paid tribute to the nation ' s veterans on Veteran ' s Day. After a parade on Philadelphia Street, there were ceremonies between Keith and Leonard Halls at the Vietnam Veteran ' s Memorial. Other lUP happenings in November in- cluded Theatre-By-The-Grove ' s production of " The Robber Bridegroom; " and an ap- pearance by Marie Ragghianti (who told of the corruption in Tennessee ' s state govern- ment in a book and movie) as part of the Ideas and Issues Series. On the sports scene, lUP ' s women ' s cross country team captured the PSAC confer- ence meet, the NCAA Northeast Regional Title, and placed third in the NCAA Division II Championship meet. The end of the foot- ball season was not as bright, after capturing the PSAC West, the Big Indians fell to Bloomsburg 31-9 in the state Championship game. Nationally, Americans celebrated Thanks- giving and began their Christmas shopping on November 29 or " Black Friday " as many merchants preferred to call it.

Retrospect December December saw the Fall 1986 semester come to a close, and new ideas about regis- tration for classes begin. Telephone registra- tion may be the wave of the future for lUP students, by using touch-tone telephones registration may take place in the comfort of a dorm room or apartment. The plan could be implemented before 1988. In other administrative news, the lUP Council of Trustees approved an increase m the cost of housing for on-campus students for the 1986-87 fiscal year. The costs will rise from $545 a semester for a double to $582, and $818 to $875 for a smgle. In area news during December, the sale of the Pittsburgh Pirates to a group of local Pittsburgh businesses for $22 million was unanimously accepted by the major league baseball owners. In Indiana, police and fire departments investigated several car torching incidents in the borough. Numerous cars were damaged throughout the month, including the com- plete destruction of an lUP student ' s car in the parking lot of Lenninger Hall. On a more positive note, Christmas is the biggest event of December, if not the whole year. Traditions continued everywhere in- cluding at lUP when members of the lUP and Indiana communities gathered in front of John Sutton Hall on December 5 for the Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony. Carols were sung, and hot chocolate, wassail and donuts were served in the Blue Room after the ceremony.

The plane was carrying American soldiers who were going home for Christmas. 248 soldiers were killed. Two days after Christmas, terrorists opened fire on airports m Rome and Vienna killing 18 people, including two Americans. -Cynthia Carmickle 66 Retrospect January While lUP students spent ha ll ol Janudry on break, the news throughout the state and nation never stopped. January 1 saw the traditional resolutions, bowl games and hangovers. A game of par ticular interest to many Pennsylvanians was the Orange Bowl as Penn State met the Oklahoma Sooners. The " meeting " was not the best for the Nittany Lions as they lost 25- 10. Another cause of unhappiness for some Pennsylvanians in January was the Liquor Control Board ' s latest curbs on Happy Hours. The new laws said that Happy Hours can last no more than two hours and must come to a close by midnite. The new legisla- tion also abolished " two for one drinks " and " beat the clock " specials. The Kodak Corporation was reprimanded on the national level as a federal court ruling upheld the earlier decision that Kodak stole trade secrets from Polaroid when they devel- oped their instamatic camera. The court called for a recall of the cameras and proper refunds to consumers. A new federal holiday was celebrated for the first time this year — The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. ' s birthday was recognized as a holiday on Monday, January 20. Upon returning to lUP on January 13, stu- dents found some changes had occurred. Four of lUP ' s colleges held arena drop add. George Chaump left his head football coaching position and was replaced by Frank Cignetti, lUP ' s athletic director. Sally B. Johnson Hall was opened for its first classes. Depending on who they were rooting for, some lUP football fans enjoyed the Super Bowl, as the Chicago Bears fxjunded the New England Patriots 46-10. January ended on a sad note as the space shuttle Challenger exploded approximately 60 seconds after liftoff. The $1.2 billion spacecraft was destroyed and all seven crew members were killed. They were Christa McAuliffe, Francis Scobee, Michael Smith, Judith Resnick, Ronald McNair, Ellison Oni- zuka, and Gregory Jarvis. -Cynthia Carmickle Top and lell: Snow pelted lUP making (or lots ol snow- men and shovelmg. Retrospect 67 February February started out with an unusual pre- diction from Punxsutawney Phil, the famed groundhog, he did not see his shadow. This meant an early spring, a prediction he has given only seven times in 99 years. On February 4, Governor Thornburgh an- nounced his budget proposal for the 1 986-87 fiscal year. Major concerns arose from insti- tutions m the State System of Higher Educa- tion, of which lUP is a part, because the proposal gave the program a 3% increase — far short of the 9.9% SSHE requested. On February 12 and 13, the Indiana Chapter of the Red Cross held a two-day blood drive at lUP for the first time in 20 years. Organizations were encouraged to participate and four trophies were awarded in four different categories. Other lUP February happenings included Jennifer Bradley being crowned as Miss lUP; Theatre-By-The-Grove ' s production of " The bining Room; " a lecture in Fisher Auditori- um by Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young; and the beginning of the Student Cooperative Associations budget hearings. In national news, Tylenol capsules were once again the target of cyanide poisoning; this time in Yonkers, N.Y. As a result Johnson Johnson decided to discontinue the cap- sules and instead produce " caplet " pills of the medication. In the entertainment world, British pop star Phil Collins captured the Grammy for album of the year with his " No Jacket Required " release. Collins was also named pop male artist while " We Are the World " won the Grammy for song of the year. -Cynthia Carmickle Top: A two day blood drive was held at lUP lor the first time in 20 years.

Junior Nancy Knox had reason to cele- brate following the SAMS (Students Against Multiple Sclerosis) lip synch contest. Knox, sponsored by Kappa Delta, won the competi- tion by earning enough votes with her Ma- donna " Dress You Up " lip synch perfor- mance. All proceeds went to Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The lUP gymnasts celebrated capturing the PSAC title for the third straight year. They then went on to win the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional meet held at lUP on March 22. The $1.9 million Sally B. Johnson Hall was dedicated on March 21. Philadelphia Com- mon Pleas Court Judge Joseph C. Bruno was the key-note speaker at the event. Dr. James H. McCormick, Chancellor of the State Sys- tem of Higher Education, was also at the ceremonies. Steady Mick ' s, lUP ' s non-alcoholic night- club, celebrated it ' s first anniversary on March 22. The band Nick Danger, provided the entertainment and free refreshments were served. lUP paid tribute to 15 dedicated All- Amer- ican athletes on March 24 at a din- ner awards ceremony in the Blue Room. Six teams were represented and Bill Otto, the " Voice of the Big Indians " , served as master of ceremonies. In the national international scene-U.S. forces retaliated against Libya following Lib- ya ' s firing on U.S. war planes over the Gulf of Sidra in late March. The U.S.S.R. con- demned these actions. -Cynthia Carmickle Top: Judge Joseph C. Bruno makes a point at the Sally H. Johnson Hall dedication.

Beginning on April 1 , Dr. Hilda Richards was named as lUP ' s new Provost and Vice President of Academic Affairs. She was the Dean of Health and Human Services at Ohio University prior to this appointment. K. Leroy Irvis, Speaker of the State House of Representatives, spoke at lUP on April 2. The message he delivered was that the state should invest in the future by helping students get college educations with more grant and scholarship monies. Also speaking at lUP during April were author Tom Wolfe, Ambassador L. Bruce Laingen and State Department offical Edward Marks. The controversy over the Co-Op Board ' s budget cuts continued thru April. One of the most debated 1 cuts was that of the Visitors to the Aged (VTA) program. VTA ' s appeal was turned down and a $1,000 request became only a $200 action. Another controversal issue was the admin- istration ' s decision to discontinue the wrestling pro- gram for three years in order to review it. was estimated that 100 people were killed in the raid on Tripoli on April 15. Also in the month of April was the ap- parent meltdown of the Chernobyl reac- tor in the U.S.S.R., approximately 100 miles north of Kiev. Definite details about the accident were sketchy and many U.S. citizens were concerned for friends and relatives living in or nearby the U.S.S.R. Indiana experienced a destructive fire on April 23 on North Sixth Street. No one was injured but the early morning fire caused $1 million damage and left 27 people home- including over 20 lUP students. -Cynthia Carmickle Other newsworthy events were Angela Bur- ton ' s crowning as Miss Black lUP, Sigma Sigma Sigma ' s Der- by Days victory, Theatre-By-The- Grove ' s presentation of " Yentl, " Robert Palmer ' s concert, Greek Week 86, and the Block Party at Regency Apartments. Internationally, the tensions between the U.S. and Libya continued. The U.S. bombing raid on Libya killed the 15- month-old daughter of Col. Khadafy. It 70 Retrospect May Graduation and Finals. Those were the two watchwords for lUP students in May. Finals effected every lUP student, but gradu- ation touched only lUP seniors. May 10th saw well over 1,000 students graduate in ceremo- nies held throughout the campus. One large commencement ceremony was held in Miller Stadium. Graduates then moved onto their de- partmental graduation sites to receive their diplomas. -Cynthia Carmickle Top Seniors " process " into Miller Stadium. le .- Monsiqnor Charles O.

They can cause sadness, such as the day after an " all nighter. " lUP has a selection of over 100 majors within 40 departments and is the largest university in Penn- sylvania s SSHE system. Academics, they can expand your mind or give you a headache, but they are the primary reason for at- tending lUP. Academics Editor DANA SMITH " WHAT DOES DR. WELTY DO?

ACADEMICS Academics 73 PRESIDENT WELTY Not everyone at lUP knows what he looks like but when they hear the name Dr. John D. Welty, they know he ' s the president of lUP. Welty, who received his doctorate from " the other Indi- ana " in administration of higher education, first came to lUP in July 1980 and was vice president of student affairs. In March 1983 he became vice president of student and uni- versity affairs and during July 1984 he was named interim president of lUP, a position left vacant by Dr. John E. Worthen. In November 1985 Welty ' s investiture convoca- tion took place and he official- ly became president of lUP. A typical day as president of lUP, as described by Welty, consists of a 6 a.m. jog around campus, going to his office by 7 a.m.; by 8:30 a.m. he is either seeing people by appointment or attending meetings until 5 or 5:30 (plus a lunch break). In the evenings, Welty fre- quently attends university or community functions, and by late evening Welty finally gets a chance to look at his mail. Welty said he enjoys work- ing with the people in the uni- versity community, citing this as the most favorable part of his job. In the opposite direction (or what he dislikes most about his job), Welty said, " The greatest frustration is not being able to provide immediate resources for some excellent programs. " If there was one piece of ad- vice Welty would give the stu- dents at lUP, it is " to take ad- vantage of all the facilities, resources and people that are there while they have the op- portunity to be a student. You can ' t tell anyone while they ' re in school; but the college years are some of the best in your life . and you should get involved.

Far right: Opus markets the Mar- keting Club. f I I J lUP ' s College of Business is comprised of 4000 students, 72 faculty members, and four de- partments — Accounting, Ad- ministrative Services and Busi- ness Education, Finance and Management Information Sys- tems, and Management and Marketing. Dean Cyrus A. Aitimus is proud of his college. " We ' ve got a great operation, and I ' m proud of it, " he said. " Our faculty and our students are what I ' m most proud of, " he continued. " I believe we have an outstanding student body which is succesful not only with- in the university, but also out- side in the work force. " The Accounting department provides a strong professional background in the theory and practice of financial accounting, cost accounting, taxes, and au- diting. It fulfills the re- irements for the student to sit for the CPA examination and satis- fies the education requirement for Certified Public Ac- countant. The Administrative Services and Business Education depart- ment prepares teachers to in- struct in junior senior high school. Students choose from the following areas of teacher certification: accounting, data processing, marketing, secre- tarial and distributive education. These areas all include certifica- tion in typewriting. The Finance and Manage- ment Information Systems de- partment includes education of financial instruments, such as stocks and bonds, and financial practices that lead to sound management. It also includes in- struction in business computer utilization and in design and im- plementation of business sys- tems. lUP was among the first institutions of higher learning in the nation to provide a major that emphasizes computer appli- cations for business within the standard business program curriculum. The Management and Mar- keting department concentrates on marketing, general manage- ment, human resource manage- ment, and claims management. The Department provides the opportunity for non-majors to develop a minor in these areas. The college also provides the opportunity for internships, graduate program degrees, stu- dent exchanges, and a pre-law minor, which is intended for the business major interested in law as a career. All in all, the college provides service course to broaden the educational horizons of all lUP students. Dean Aitimus said it best when he said, " We have an im- age for excellence here. " - Angie Fought Academics 77 COLLEGE OF EDUCATION The College of Education is comprised of six departments which include approximately 1 ,692 undergraduates and 234 graduates. The departments are: communications media, counselor education, educa- tion psychology, professional studies in education, second- ary education and special edu- cation. Also included in the College of Education are voca- tional education and the Uni- versity School, which is locat- ed in Davis Hall. According to Dr. John But- zow. Assistant Dean, the col- lege has encountered several changes during the year, one of which was the departments re-accreditation for another seven years. Also, the College of Education in conjunction with the College of Natural Sciences received a $300,000 grant from the National Sci- ence Foundation which will be used to teach high school teachers how to more fully uti- lize computers in teaching math and science in the class- room. This program will run in the summers of 1986 and 1987. The college also has re- ceived a grant from President Welty ' s office to study the assessment of students in training. They have also upgraded the quality of the computer equipment in the Davis Hall laboratory, adding 50 new Ap- ple computers and extending service hours. During the past year the Ele- mentary Education depart- ment changed its name to Pro- fessional Studies in Education which, according to Butzow, " indicates a broader mission for the department. " Butzow said one of the short- term objectives of the depart- ment is to redesign the under- graduate program for the State Department of Education by June 1987. The changes would " make sure we (College of Education) implement as much of the recent trends (in educa- tion) as is reasonable, " Butzow said. He added some of the courses will be redesigned and more work in pre-student teaching will occur. The other short-term goals include working with faculty to increase and improve founda- tion research and develop- ment activities and further de- velop the micro-laboratory. - Barbara Smergalski 78 Academics Opposite page, lop: The chairper ons of the College of Education.

A ff Academics 79 COLLEGE OF FINE ARTS The Fine Arts constantly sur- round us everywhere we go, yet most of us seem to take them for granted. The College of Fine Arts at lUP serves to increase the awareness of the fine arts at lUP and in the Indiana community. The College of Fine Arts was established in 1965 when lUP became a university. At first the college was comprised of only art and music depart- ments, but in 1976 theater was moved from the English de- partment into the college. Dr. J. Christopher Benz, in his eleventh year as dean of the college, is only the second dean in the college ' s history. Likewise, the number of facul- ty and students is about the same as it was five years ago. " We ' re amazmgly static, " said Dean Benz. Majors in the College of Fine Arts include art studio, art of music history, music theory, art or music education, thea- ter,and theater or music per- formance. Also offered is a unigue general fine arts major which enables students to take courses in art, dance, interior design, media, music and the- ater. At least three areas are included, and the student se- lects three courses to be taken. According to Dean Benz, about 60 percent of the art ma- jors are in studio and 40 per- cent are in education, while m music it is the exact opposite. Some students also go on to more studies. " The students have done very well in terms of finding jobs, " said Benz. Especially in the teaching area, he said, since the need for teachers will soon be going up. Besides providing academic programs for majors in the arts, the College of Fine Arts offers service courses for other de- partmental majors and offers all students general courses in the arts, including a reguired introduction to art, music or theater course. The college is also active in providing services for the Indi- ana community. Kipp gallery and the University museum are open to the public. Also, every summer since 1973, lUP sponsors the " Summer Hap- pening " which brings high school students talented in the arts to lUP for special courses. The art department also sponsors the Indiana Arts Council which helps to en- hance the local awareness of the performing arts by bring- ing performers to lUP. " The college is pretty active in the community and for the community, " Benz said. - Dana Smith 80 Academics Leil: Chairpersons of the Col- lege of Fine Arts. C. Weber. Music; D. Eisen.

Habits range from the serious to the light-hearted, the obvious to the weird and the ones too strange to mention. For example, those people who lay on benches in the Oak Grove, with their Walkman cranked up to nine or ten on the volume and their books on the ground. (You have to do this on your stomach — it ' s the only way to study!) The typical lUP student studies just like everyone else — whenever there is noth- ing else to do. The " Bill Cosby Show " or the party down the hall definitely take precedence over anything else, especially something as boring and de- pressing as studying. Eating combined with study- ing is a very common (and very fattening) study method. Somehow that Biology book and those Oreo cookies just seem to go together. In case you get the munchies on the way to class, you always have the opportunity to stop at the Bagel Wagon for a guick bite. Of course, you ' ll only get a Coke. Well, maybe a donut . . . or a bagel ... or a candy bar. But for some of us, eating and studying seem to go hand in hand. The mixing of these two " pleasures " seems to occur most in one particular place — the cafeteria. Have you seen those people with their books Top nght: Students lounge in Elkin ' s " think tank.

How can you possibly study while absorbing those " interesting " aromas? Have you ever wondered about those people that seem to constantly have their stereos blasting? Somehow I find it hard to believe that you can study Calculus and dance to Bruce Springsteen at the same time. When you finally arrive to take your test, you may dis- cover that you only know half of those vocabulary words, but you ' ve learned all of the words to the top three songs of the week. Friends are wonderful peo- ple, but they always seem to appear at the most inoppor- tune times. No sooner have you begun to study than forty people knock at your door. Someone is fighting with their roommate and needs someone to complain to. You already know they were fighting be- cause you are able to hear ev- erything they do through the paper-thin walls. She needs your help — how can you turn her away? Eventually she leaves and you head back to the books. Silence. That is, un- til your phone rings. It ' s your best friend from home. Her boyfriend just dumped her. She spends an hour sobbing into your ear. You are finally able to quiet her down and she begins to apologize for mo- nopolizing your time. Resume studying. The charming peo- Mr pie upstairs have decided tliat it is time for them to give a party. Put on your earmuffs, clench your fists, scream, set your alarm at 4 a.m. and go to bed. Have you ever taken your studying to the laundry room? Actually if you can stand the noise of the washers and dry- ers, and the heat, this is a good place to study. Not many peo- ple will bother you unless your washing machine begins to overflow. Clean the bubbles off your books, mop up the mess and return to the books. Many people find the bath- room a very relaxing place to work. One particular place that seems to be very popular is — yep, you guessed it — the commode. Here ' s a warning for all you toilet toilers: pencils, pens, and ht-lighters may float, but your English notes will not. If all else fails and you dis- cover to your dismay that your are flunking out, you could go to the library. Be prepared to spend your day there — that is about how long it will take you to find what you ' re looking for. But if you know where your material is located, you ' re in good shape. Try not to make too much of a commotion when you unzip your back- pack and feast on the silence. Let us now discuss another type of lUP student known as " Mr. Study " or the 4.0 student. He is easy to distinguish — he looks very malnourished be- ( dusfc! ealiny takes too much time out of his schedule. When he runs into you in the hallway (this happens often because his head is always down read- ing a book), he will immediate- ly begin to discuss nuclear physics with you. If you ' re lucky, he may even grace you with the results of his last exam, a perfect score, of course. This wonderful student only leaves his room on two occasions: to go to the library and to go to class. He is easy to spot in a crowd: he ' s the one with the calculator and fifteen pens sticking out of the front pocket of his wrinkled Oxford shirt. In case you are wondering, the 4.0 student dreams only in shades of hi-lighter. At the opposite end of the lUP spectrum, we have who is commonly called the " Party Animal. " This student ' s favor- ite way to study, you ask? On the way to class. You ' ll run into this guy too, but his reason is that he is too hungover to look up. He often wonders why pro- fessors schedule tests on the nights after frat parties. Doesn ' t it make you angry when this fellow does better on the exam than you? Doesn ' t seem fair. Study habits at lUP are as diverse as the people. Every- one has their own favorite place and method, whether it be sitting at a desk or laying on the floor, hi-lighting or typing notes, eating a Ho-Ho or drink- ing a beer. Good luck — with study habits like yours, you ' ll need it! - Barbara Conroy Academics 83 COLLEGE OF HEALTH SCIENCES The College of Health Sci- ences at lUP contains over 1200 students and 70 faculty members in its four depart- ments: Allied Health, Health and Physical Education, Nurs- ing, and Safety Sciences. All programs are accredited and provide theoretical, laborato- ry, and " hands-on " ex- perience. The Allied Health depart- ment includes Medical Tech- nology and Respiratory Thera- py. Medical technology majors at lUP study here for three years then do a clerical study for a year at a nationally ac- credited hospital, where they work with modern equipment and the latest in technology. The Respiratory Therapy program is associated with Western Pennsylvania Hospi- tals to provide a program which leads to a bachelor of science degree. Two years are spent at lUP, and if a student ' s grade point average is 2.25 or better, he completes his last two years at West Penn School of Respiratory Therapy. Only 25 students are admitted to the school each year. All lUP Res- piratory Therapy graduates who have sought full time em- ployment have been hired. The Health and Physical Education department at lUP offers two degrees, a bachelor of science degree in education with a comprehensive major in health and physical education, and a bachelor of science de- gree in physical education and sport. Those with degrees in physical education can get into such fields as leisure sports, recreation organiza- tions, fund-raising and public relations, and sports facility management. The department has developed two nationally approved programs that pre- pare students to become YMCA aquatic directors and physical directors. lUP ' s Safety Sciences pro- gram has the only accredited undergraduate program in the nation and its graduate pro- gram is the only one of its type in the U.S. More than 80 per- cent of lUP safety grads are employed as safety profession- als. All lUP safety majors are required to take an internship and some majors have in- terned at such major compa- nies as Alcoa, IBM, Westing- house and Chevron. Paid co-op positions are also avail- able to lUP safety majors. Upon graduation from the nursing department at lUP, students are qualified to take the Pennsylvania Nurse Licen- sure Examination. Nursing ma- jors complete three semesters of general education and pre- requisites in natural sciences, then begin to concentrate on the theory of nursing. Junior and senior nurses practice in clinical agencies in the coun- ties surrounding lUP. Both the nursing depart- ment and the safety sciences department moved into the new Sally B. Johnson Hall in the first part of 1986. The building contains specialized labs for both departments, classrooms, departmental li- braries, and faculty offices. Dr. Harold E. Wingard, in- terim dean of the college for the past two years, is very proud of the college, its stu- dents and faculty. " We have a dedicated facul- ty, " he said. " They ' re willing to spend whatever time it takes for the student to attain the competence level needed. I ' m really pleased with the success of this college.

" The name was changed in order to get away from the old connotation of keeping the woman in the house, " Dr. Har- old Wingard, Interim Dean of the College of Human Ecology said. The College is not only in- volved with things within the home. Food Service and Lodging, which includes the study of hotel management, has been added to the curricu- lum this year. And if approved by the state, it will be a new program in the Department of Food and Nutrition. The two other departments in the College are the Depart- ment of Consumer Services and the Department of Home Economics Education. There are 760 students en- rolled in the College of Human Ecology and 28 faculty members. " I am proud of the faculty in the way they relate to stu- dents, " Wingard said. ' T feel we have a dedicated group of {people that have a true interest in the students. " He said he is also proud of the students in the college. The students run the Allen- mi tt -Wioxs COHSUMER EDIEMIOH wood cafeteria, located in the basement of Ackerman, which serves the lUP faculty as well as the Indiana community daily. " I am proud of the profes- sionalism the students show in their work in the cafeteria, " Wingard said. Students also work in the child development center in Ackerman. There are plans to move the center to Eicher. This will provide a larger area which will accomodate more students. - Lesley Holton -w». fit f p I — 4 .

According to Dr. Oliver I. Ford, III, dean of the college, this school affects the overall university program because it has the " single biggest in- volvement in general edu- cation. " This school contains such departments as Criminology, History, Foreign Languages, Political Science, Philosophy, Geography and Regional Planning, Labor Relations, Lin- guistics, and Sociology Anth- ropology. Many of these de- partments have plans to change in the future. For example, Ford said that the Sociology Anthropology department nov has applied human services with a concen- tration in socially significant cases like child, spouse and substance abuse. The Geogra- phy and Regional Planning department " acquired com- puter mapping equipment that brought (the department) pret- ty close to state of the art com- puter assisted mapping, " ac- cording to Ford. He said that International Studies have expanded the summer study abroad pro- gram in foreign languages and other disciplines, like clothing design. Students are now able to study abroad in France, Ita- ly, England, Ireland, Mexico, and China. During the school year, stu- dents can study in Germany, France, Spain and England. Some students can even choose to do their student teaching abroad, but they still must do half of it in the United States to be certified. Ford also said that the En- glish department has a task force on writing that has been studying for over a year the need for writing in other discli- pines, like Safety Sciences. He added that this will " probably have a very dramatic effect on the amount of writing in other major classes. " There are also a number of other changes going on in the College of Humanities and So- cial Sciences that are expand- ing the educational capabili- ties and allowing students to prepare for a better future. • Maryann Kolenchak Lett: Chairpersons of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, front row from left: J.

Academics 89 COLLEGE OF NATURAL SCIENCES AND MATHE As we enter the 21st centu- ry, technology as well as sci- ence will be a part of our daily lives. The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics ac- quaints students with scientific methods of advanced technol- ogy. The college familiarizes the students with solving prob- lems through the use of sci- ence, introduces different sci- entific techniques, gives a sense of perspective in the de- veloping of science, and de- velops an insight to the basic community of its scientific rules and regulations. There are seven depart- ments which comprise the Col- lege of Natural Sciences and Mathematics — Biology, Chem- istry, Computer Science, Geo- science, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, Physics, and Psy- chology. Depending on the program in the departments, students may earn a degree in the bachelor of arts, bachelor of science, or bachelor of sci- ence in education. In addition to the regular curriculum, the college has es- tablished cooperative agree- ments with many outstanding institutions to provide signifi- cant career opportunities to the students. These coopera- tive programs include working with other colleges such as Jef- ferson Medical College, Drexel University, University of Pittsburgh, and the Marine Science Consortium. This type of education enables the stu- dent to gain first-hand experi- ence in his or her future occu- pation. The cooperative programs are intended to as- sure acceptance of qualified students by the cooperating professional schools. " I feel that the Cdlege of Natural Sciences and Mathe- matics is very competitive and compares favorably with the other colleges in the country, " said Dr. Charles Fuget, dean of the college. Fuget also said that there are new science courses offered this year that enhance several areas of the biology curriculum. The College of Natural Sci- ences and Mathematics is very prominent on the lUP campus. The number of full and part- time students enrolled in the college is approximately 1 ,774 for the Fall Spring semesters. The largest departments (con- taining the most students) in the college are Computer Sci- ence, Biology and Psychology. The College hopes to pro- vide the lecture and laboratory experiences necessary for the general education require- ments, the background and training needed for the stu- dent who majors within the seven various departments, and advanced training and support fot students to pursue professional and or graduate degrees. -Debbie Hackman Top center: This familiar sign wel- comes Biology students daily; and below, one of Weyandt ' s inhabit- ants.

ROTC can be taken for two semesters to satisfy the Health and Phys. Ed. re- quirements or can become a commission as a second lieutenant in the U. S. Army to those who complete the total program. Upon gradu- ation, students then serve either three years continu- ous active duty or three months active duty for train- ing with the remaining obli- gation served in the Army Reserve or National Guard. lUP has established one of the best ROTC programs in the state and has won nu- merous awards. In April, the ROTC department was selected as the winner of the Order of Founders and Patriots of America award. lUP was chosen over more than 1 10 other Army ROTC detachments in the eastern United States for the award. Also, for the second year in a row, lUP ' s ROTC pro- gram was awarded the Governor ' s trophy as the best ROTC program in Pennsylvania by Governor Dick Thornburgh. The program offers train- ing in skills such as scuba diving, repelling, marks- manship, orienteering, first aid techniques and water safety, besides teaching leadership and managerial techniques that will be use- ful in any future job. -Dana Smith Top: Soldiers stand at attention be- hind Pierce Hall.

Above: Barbara Ender, director ol Confer- ences and Non credit Program division. lUP ' s School of Continuing Education consists of over 15,600 students and a variety of programs including busi- ness administration, driver education and emergency medical service. Dr. Nicholas E. Kolb, dean of the depart- ment, says the college plays a public service role by drav ing on the resources of the univer- sity and responding to the changing cultural and profes- sional needs of the community. " We see our role as being sensitive to change. We are the vehicle of the university to extend service to the commu- nity, " Kolb said. He explains this is done through the col- lege ' s four course program. The Division of Conferences and Non-Credit Programs ser- vices people mainly interested in upgrading their skills for ca- reer purposes. The typical stu- dent in this program is a v rom- an in her 30s who is re-entering the job market af- ter raising a family or merely taking a course for self-enrich- ment and enjoyment. High school students and organiza- tions are also frequenters of this program. Religious groups, the Future Farmers of America, and band directors often choose lUP ' s facilities to house their conferences and camps. This division has a wide variety of courses includ- ed in its curriculm. Among them are study tours, a com- puter literacy series, a man- agement development series, and real estate studies and CPA workshops, in addition to to health and human services workshops. The Division of Credit Pro- grams attracts mainly younger students who want to enhance their careers with supplemen- tal part-time (usually evening) courses. These programs are available off -campus in various locations throughout Western and Central Pennsylvania. The Criminal Justice Train- ing Center offers certified training for police officers. Le- thal Weapxins Training and Al- cohol Highway Safety pro- grams are available in this curriculum. The Highway Safety Center is primarily state grant-funded. Over $1 million is invested in training programs such as adult driver education and the Youth Traffic Safety Council. This program also is available at off-campus centers through- out Western and Central Pennsylvania. As if these programs were not enough, Dean Kolb said there ' s more to be done, and he is working on planning more credit programs like courses geared toward a bach- elor of general studies and television-assisted courses available through the Public - Broadcasting Service. -Angle Fought Academics 93 94 Sports hanging. This one word may best sunn up sports at lUP. Sonne changes were favorable, others were not. The coaching staffs at lUP saw changes. George Chaump, (football), Nancy Barthelemy (women ' s vol- leyball), Mary Louise Eltz (women ' s tennis), Bill Blacksmith (wrestling) and Robert Raemore (men ' s track and field) left their head coaching positions and were (or will be) replaced by Frank Cignetti, Kim Johnson, Jackie Albenze, Rick DeLong and Jim Wooding, respectively. Perhaps the most controversial change in the var- sity athletic program at lUP was the decision by the administration to discontinue the wrestling pro- gram in order to review it. However, some things remained the same, such as the nrinning vrays of the women ' s cross country, gymnastics and golf teams. Hopefully, the future will hold this kind of success for all of lUP ' s sports teams as they strive to be the best that they can be.

SPORTS Sports 95 SEASON ENDS AT 8-2- 1 Team Captures PSAC West 1985 was an outstanding year for lUP football as the Big Indians captured the PSAC Western Division title for the first time since 1965. Finishing the season with a record of 8- 2-1, lUP ranked as high as number three in the NCAA Division 11 football poll. " I enjoyed the year, 1 thought the team really came together, " said senior corner- back Kevin McCorkle. " I ' ve been here four years and I ' ve watched the team grow. " The Big Indians beat every team in the state ' s Western Conference by a margin of at least 17 points, including shut-outs over Shippensburg (33-0) and California (28-0). The team ' s only loss during the regular season came against Lehigh, 49-41. Dur- ing this contest lUP guarterback Rich In- gold shattered three lUP offensive re- cords in percentage of completed passes and total yardage. The Big Indians ' other loss came against Bloomsburg in the PSAC Championship game. " It wasn ' t our day against Bloomsburg, " said Ingold. " It was a miserable day for me. " Ingold suffered a broken thumb dur- ing the 31-9 loss. " We ' re a little sad about the loss to Bloomsburg but it was a good season and we had a lot of good games, " said head football coach George Chaump. Chaump commented on the fact that lUP did not receive an NCAA Division II playoff bid. They ended the season as number nine in the rankings and the top eight teams were given bids. " I didn ' t understand the NCAA playoff picture, " said Chaump. He said a school which was ranked 16 prior to the final poll ended up in the top eight, and lUP was in the top eight for the majority of the season. " We probably have one of the best Di- vision 11 programs, " Chaump said. " We have a sol id foundation. We have enough underclassmen to propitiate winning. 1 think we are over the hump, since 1 came here four years ago. " Eleven lUP players received honors fol- lowing the season. Ingold was named Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ' s Small College Player of the Year, Pennsylvania Confer- ence Western Division Player of the Year and the East Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Year for NCAA Division II. Tackle John Palamara and linebacker Bob Buriak were honored by the Pitts- burgh Post-Gazette as first team choices and second team picks for the PSAC West All-Stars. Offensive tackle Jim Angelo was also an ECAC All-Star. Wide receiver Tony Trave, running back Pat McCullough and kicker John Sandstrom were named to the PSAC West second team offense. Collecting defensive honors for PSAC West second team were linebacker Paul Thompson and cornerback McCorkle. Chaump ' s reign as head coach at lUP ended this season. He resigned to accept a new position as head football coach at Marshall University. lUP Athletic Director Frank Cignetti will replace Chaump in the 1986 season. Cignetti has been athletic director for lUP during the past four years. Cignetti was formerly coach at West Virginia Uni- versity from 1976-1979. Cignetti will have 49 returning letter- men, but will lose six starters including Ingold, Seidel, and McCorkle. According to Cignetti, the goals for the football program will remain the same — to develop a team that can capture the State title and compete for the NCAA Di- vision II title. Cignetti who has been away from coaching since 1979 said, " I ' m excited about getting back to coaching.

A lack of scoring was the main reason for the frustrating season the lUP soccer team experienced this year, according to coach Vince Celtnieks. The team booted its way to a 6-8-3 re- cord, its first losing season in eight years. Celtnieks thinks, however, that if the team would hav e had one scorer they could have won at least six more games. Tom Neslund, a mid-fielder, was the team ' s high scorer with five goals. " That goes to show the lack of scoring, " said Celtnieks, " Having a mid-fielder as high scorer has never happened before. " The team ' s losing record may not be an accurate record of the team ' s perfor- mance, though. " There were a lot of games we dominated that we didn ' t win, " Celtnieks said, " We missed a lot of goal chances. " He felt the Indians outplayed teams like St. Vincent and Frostburg, but still came up on the losing end of the score. Celtnieks thinks the scoring opportuni- ties were missed because the team was too concerned with playing the defense. " People didn ' t have a lot of poise in front of the goal, " he said. " There was not enough follow-up. " But at times everything seemed to click for the team. In games against WVU and Pitt, Celtnieks said the Big Indians played as a unit and gave themselves a lot of chances, which resulted in victories. Frank Paz, a junior from Philadelphia, agrees with Celtnieks in his view of the season. " Overall we had the talent on the team, " he said, " We just couldn ' t get ev- eryone to blend together. " Paz consid- ered the team ' s winning performance against WVU one of the few " bright spots " of the season. Despite the team ' s losing season, four players, Paz, Todd Hammond, Dave Marky and Neslund, participated in the Western Pennsylvania Intercollegiate Soccer Conference All-Star game. The Big Indians will be losing two se- niors, Tom Neslund and Mark Van den Boogaar, but Celtnieks is optimistic for next year ' s team. " If we can get a scorer we ' re going to be strong. Other than los- ing the two seniors we ' re going to be pret- ty well intact. " -Holly Stoner f Sports Lett: Rich Betis goes lor the ball as Marc Yeadon looks on.

Becky Hitz The 7-9 record of the lUP field hockey team was technically a losing season. But to Kofie Montgomery, the field hockey coach, this was really a winning season. " We won seven games which no lUP field hockey team has done, " coach Mont- gomery said " We also scored 21 goals which no lUP team ever did before. " In addition to the regular season the team also went to the Sun Fest Tourna- ment in Salisbury, MD. They beat Oenita college who they lost to in 1984. This win gave the team third place in the tourna- ment. This was the first trophy an lUP field hockey team ever received. Kofie Montgomery said the most excit- ing game was with Kent State in which lUP lost. The game went on for 2 and a half hours. After lUP suffered the injury of a key player the game ended in a 3-3 tie. After double overtime, two penalty strokes and one sudden death stroke the game was still tied. Then in the second sudden death stroke Kent State scored. The reason that the team was as suc- cessful as it was this year is because they had few outstanding players. Coach Montgomery said, " We worked together as a team and we were strong as a whole. Our bench was as strong as our players on the field. " The seniors on the team were Lynn Christina, Robin Crawford, Deneen Ebling, Kris Feick, Roberta Flaherty, Ka- ren Jones and Nancy Zygarowicz. Kris Feick said, " Even though we lost some tough games no one gave up. Ev- eryone put in 100 percent. We all worked together this year as a team.

One of the most exciting meets of the season was the Paul Short Memorial Con- test at Lehigh University in which lUP fin- ished third. " We beat some really good Division I teams like the University of Pennsylvania, Cornell, Rutgers and Princeton, " said coach Ed Fry. Winning the NCAA Northeast Regional meet was another exciting event in the 1985 season according to Fry. " This is the first any lUP women ' s cross country team ever won the northeast, " he said. " I am also very proud of the fact that we had the lowest point total ever recorded at the regional and state meets. " The top four-year seniors were Mary Alico, Julie Cancilla, Gina Dibridge, Kathy Ewing, Nanci Line, Jennifer Rifts, Lynn Robbins, Chris Skarvelis and Eliza- beth Urguhart. " " I am really proud of all the girls, " Fry said, " especially those who stuck it out for four years. " Tammy Donnelly, a junior, was the top runner of the season. She was fourth in the national championships. Weezie Benzoni and Lisa Bonaccorsi, sophomores, were also top runners. " We couldn ' t have done it without Coach, " the team shouted when asked how they achieved such a successful season. " This was an unique season, " Benzoni said. " It was a great experience for the whole team. Everyone improved.

A lack of preparation, in]unes and ill- nesses accounted for a disappointing sea- son for tlie 1985 men ' s cross country team. Co-captain Jim Sullivan summarized the season by saying the team put forth a full effort in attempting to achieve its goals. " There were a few minor set- backs — injuries and illnesses, plus the fact that there was not enough preparation be- fore we came back to school this fall. But we were close as a unit and that helped to develop a winning attitude. " The team did not achieve its goal of making an appearance at the National NCAA II meet this year, a break from a tradition that has given the team a reputa- tion of being ranked as one of the top seven teams nationwide. The team ' s over- all record was 100 wins and 21 losses, including all invitationals and championships. " We had a good season, " co-captain Larry McDonough commented, " and the fact that a lot of us didn ' t fulfill our goals didn ' t have a bearing on our team. Our overall spirit was good.

The team proudly finished with an overall record of 12 wins and 15 losses. " The girls worked very hard, they dis- played a lot of determination in their play- ing. This spirit was displayed in the hard- est conference match of the season, which was with Lock Haven. We were tied 4-4, the last match was the tie breaker and the girls played skillfully but unfortunately lost 4-5, " stated coach Albenze. The highlights of the season were the two tournaments that they participated in, the lUP Tennis Invitational and the Penn- sylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC). The lUP Tennis Invitational was a competition between five schools: Lock Haven, Slippery Rock, Shippensburg, Edinboro and lUP. Nine flights took place, which included six singles and three dou- bles. lUP won seats in three of the singles in their division. The winners of the sin- gles were number four single Kris Freund, number five single Wendy Eckhard and number six single Lori Ludwig. Also, lUP won number three doubles which were champions Linda Hanlon and Lori Lud- wig. Overall, lUP resulted in a score of 14, Lock Haven 12, Slippery Rock 8, Ship- pensburg 7 and Edinboro 4. The Pennsylvania State Athletic Con- ference (PSAC) was a challenging tourna- ment for the women ' s tennis team. Not only did lUP win third place, but Lori Ludwig won state championship, Kris Freund won runner-up, and the number three doubles runner-ups were Wendy Eckhard and Linda Hanlon. " A major accomplishment for me was winning states, it was an excellent experi- ence. But, the highlight of the season was when we started to win more matches lat- er in the season. At this time the team worked harder and pulled closer togeth- er, " said Lori Ludwig, PSAC champion. The team consisted of 15 players, which included two senior starters. There were no serious injuries, only slight ankle and shoulder injuries but the players played through them. Kris Freund, PSAC runner up stated, " The most exciting experience for me was to be the only freshman in the starting line-up. At first 1 stayed back and watched the other players, but later on I started to advance forward and played my best. The team worked together and played as a team, not as individuals. " " The outlook for next year is to have a strong upperhalf, keep the winning tradi- tion moving, to challenge Allegheny, Edinboro, WVU and Shippensburg, " stat- ed coach Albenze. -Debbie Hackman 106 Sports Above: The 1985 women ' s tennis team: First row: Natalie Ivlusci, Sue Sippel, Lynda Frombach, Adnenne Keenan, Lon Ludwig Second row: Tracy h lcKissick, Wendy Eckhard, Cathy Crumrine, Paula Dietrich Thrid row: Coach Jackie Albenze, Kris Freund, Sue Smidlein, Sue IvlcCalmont, Eileen McArdle, Cathy Schutte, Linda Hanlon.

" It was a first-year team, " Kim Johnson, women ' s volleyball coach, says, " and 1 was a first-year coach. " Johnson, who graduated from lUP in 1983, had several new and younger players to work with during her first season as coach. But she also had two returning letter- man to add experience and support to the team-Lori Plennigwerth, a senior and three-year letterman, and Penny Starr, a two-year senior letterman. The team was picked during the first week of September and practice began the second week. " That made it tough, " Johnson said, " because it was a little hard to just jump in. " The team ended its season with a record of 10-25. However, Johnson says the team had a good attitude. " It ' s hard to lose and keep your heads up, " Johnson added, " but the team is looking forward to their offseason as well as to next year. " The women ' s volleyball team was small with an average height of 5 feet 7 inches. This was one disadvantage the team had. This was especially true when facing a team such as Edinboro University whose average height was 5 feet 10 inches. lUP faced both Edinboro and Clarion univer- sities in the PSAC Western Champ- ionships. But we showed what we could do against Edinboro and Clarion in the championships, " Johnson says, " they were extremely close matches which could have gone either way. " The lUP Women ' s Volleyball team end- ed its 1985 season on Friday, November 1 . Johnson will coach the women ' s volley- ball team next year. She says this past season was generally a learning experi- ence-the team did a lot of growing up. -Kimberly Fiasco Above: Lon Plennigwerth lines up her serve. 108 Sports Above: Coaches watch irom the sideline, planning a Above: Hathaway waits for a block at the net.

Bob said he loves the little moments such as when kids come up and talk to him during a game. One of his most exciting moments was when he climbed the tower at the 1984 Shippensburg football game. " Unfortunately, the cops didn ' t like it, " Bob said. " They arrested mel But it was worth it. The fans went wild and that ' s what I wanted to happen. " He has had some rough times too like being threatened, punched and hit with bottles. " I have no regrets, " Bob said. " It took up a lot of time but I loved every minute of it. " Bob has balanced his duty as the Indian with the rest of his lUP life. He has main- tained a 3.5 average while majoring in management. He also actively participates in his fraternity. Alpha Tau Omega. Becoming more secure and learning to read people are just a few of the things being the mascot has helped Bob to achieve. Bob said he has not always been this confident. " I was terrified for my frist game. It used to be really hard to go out there and act crazy. Now it ' s just second nature, " he said. Bob decided to try out for the mascot postition his freshman year. He and his friends were checking out the cheerlead- ers and they encouraged him to do it. So he said, " What the heck! " He also wanted to stay close to sports, especially football, his first love. Bob said he loves the attention he gets by being the mascot. " It ' s great going out there. I get to be someone else. I have no limitations. I can be as crazy as I want, " Bob said. " If you ' re having a bad day, you go out there and use up all that aggres- sion. I always end up feeling terrific. " Upon graduation Bob plans to join the Army. " What I want to do is pursue a career in flying helicopters, " Bob said. His dream as the lUP Indian was to parachute into the 1985 homecoming football game. " No mascot has ever done it, " Bob said, " It would put me in the history books, " Unfortunately, a broken ankle kept Bob from obtaining his dream. We are certain that even though he won ' t be in the history books for this ad- venturous feat we at lUP will never forget our Indian from 1982-1986.

Sports III WIN OVER DIVISION I ROBERT MORRIS-PEAK OF SEASON Men ' s Basketball Team Represented lUP Well m r A The 1985-86 men ' s basketball team: Kneehng (1 to r): Freddie Sandifer, Jerry Shanahan, Mike Dorsey, Dave Knaub, lay Irwin, Tom Chaney, Andy Rolen, stu- dent coach Standmg: Tom Beck, head coach, John Sanow, Mike Bertness, Rob Englehart, Bob luzzolino, Chas. Paeier, Marcus Amos, Paul Burnett, Asst. coaches Joe Lombardi and Tony Bemardi The 1985-86 season was one marked by peaks of excellence and valleys of incon- sistency. Tlie Big Indians, who finished with an overall record of 16-13 and a con- ference record of 6-4, started the year against formidable Division I opponents and were led by seniors Freddie Sandifer and Dave Knaub. After easily defeating Alliance, lUP was beaten by West Virgin- ia, University of Pittsburgh and Duquesne - all very respectable Division I squads. The Big Indians went on to win three of their next five games, beating Pitt Johns- town, Bowie State of Maryland and LaRoche. lUP reached its highest peak of the sea- son when they defeated Division I Robert Morris. This marked the first time that an lUP basketball team had ever defeated a Division I opponent. During the semester break, lUP beat Point Park and lost to District of Columbia m lUP ' s Christmas Tree Tournament. The next four games were victories for the Big Indians, one being the defeat of Philadelphia Textile, a nationally ranked Division II team. By the beginning of Feb- ruary, lUP was 5-0 in conference play and considered the favo rite to win the division. " In the beginning, we played brilliant basketball, " Tom Beck, lUP ' s head coach, said. " We defeated teams like Robert Morris and Philadelphia Textile on their home courts. We were getting excellent play from our key men - Sandifer and Knaub and from our freshmen like Paul Burnett, Mike Dorsey and Tom Chaney. " But the season ' s valleys were yet to come. lUP lost four of its next five games, all conference games, to teams they had handily beaten earlier in the year. These four conference losses knocked lUP into second place. The team ended the regu- lar season with a victory over Mercyhurst. lUP defeated Clarion soundly in the first playoff game, but lost to Edinboro by four points in the next match. lUP shot poorly from the inside against Edinboro as they were 2 for 18. " Our goals were to win the conference, win the playoffs and make the NCAA tournament, " Beck said. " I was disap- pointed that we didn ' t achieve our goals, because they were certainly within reach. We just didn ' t play well when we had to near the end. " The team ' s scoring was widely distribut- ed with the leader being junior John Sanow who averaged 1 1 .5 points per game. Sanow ' s best game was against Di- vision II powerhouse Cheyney where his outside shooting ability allowed him to pour in 26 points in the losing effort. Be- hind Sanow in scoring was Freddie San- difer, 10.6 and Mike Bertness and Mike Dorsey with 10.1 Bertness led the team in rebounds averaging 6.4 per game fol- lowed by Knaub with 6.3, Dorsey with 6.2 and Sandifer with 6. 1 rebounds per game. Sandifer also led the team in assists with 1 13 for the year. Coach Beck noted that he will look to Dorsey and Chaney to fill in for the two seniors for next year ' s team. But for this year ' s team he had nothing but praise. " These young men worked very hard and cooperated with the coaching staff in every way, " he said. " We were extremely pleased with their attitude and we feel they represented lUP very well.

" The words are those of Coach Carolyn Thompson, who described her women ' s basketball season as " great " and " fun " , despite losing last year ' s team ' s natural talent. " We played a good brand of basketball because everyone made contributions to a successful season, " she said. " Even though we lost our natural talent from last year ' s team, we surprised pre-season ex- pectations and had a very good season. " Seniors Lisetta Boccella from Carrick ITigh School in Pittsburgh, Ginny Wilson from Lakeview High School in Stoneboro and Daria McKnight from Oxford Hills High School in Harrison, Maine, provided the leadership the team needed to earn an impressive record. The team ' s final record was 15 wins and 1 1 losses. This is impressive, considering pre-season predictions didn ' t have the Lady Braves in the top three. In fact, they tied for second in the conference at 6-4 with Lock Haven. " The whole season itself was great, but I guess if there is one game that stands out, it was our victory against Lock Haven, " Thompson said. " We beat them on their own floor, which we have never done. " Sophomore guard Patti Connaghan shattered the old record assists mark with 141. She also led the team with 75 steals. Boccella led the team with 174 re- bounds and was third in scoring, averag- ing 10.4 points a game. Second in scoring was Wilson, who scored 10.8 points a game. Junior guard Sue Brecko topped the team ' s scoring statistics with her impres- sive record of 43% accuracy from the floor and 75% accuracy from the foul line. Another stand-out was McKnight who led the team with 17 blocked shots and 7.3 rebounds a game.

" Giving up 12 points every match makes it hard to win, " said first year head wrestling coach Rick DeLong. The team ' s three wins were over Juniata (36-15), California (30-18) and Mansfield (33-22). The wrestlers experienced two close losses to Kutztown (27-21) and UPJ (24-17). In tournament action the wrestlers turned in an impressive finish at the Juni- ata Tournament. They placed second out of seven teams. Senior co-captains Rich Bonaccorsi and Lenny Davis won the 190 and 167 lb. weight classes, respectively. Sophomores R odger Wigman (HWT) and Ward Allenbach also captured first in their weight classes. Sophomore Allen Gross backed up the team effort with a third place finish in the 142 lb. division. At the lUP Invitational, Bonaccorsi won the 177 lb. class. Allenbach placed sec- ond in the 134 lb. division. Taking third places in the 142 lb. and 167 lb. classes were Gross and Davis. The team placed fifth out of eight teams. At the PSAC championships, the team placed ninth out of thirteen teams, Bonac- corsi placed fourth in the 190 lb division. During the NCAA Regionals, Bonac- corsi placed third in the 177 lb. class and Davis finished fourth in the 167 lb. divi- sion. lUP placed eighth in the team standings. On an individual level, Bonaccorsi, an AU-American his sophomore year, lead the team. During the 85-86 season, he be came the most successful wrestler in lUP ' ; history by finishing his lUP wrestling ca reer with 107 wins. This broke Rand Strayer ' s record of 78 lUP career wins Aside of this accomplishment, Bonaccors also won the 190 lb. division titles at th Rochester Institute of Technology and thi West Liberty Invitational. " As far as the future ' s concerned fo me, I ' d like to go into coaching and hel] other young athletes become champi ons, " said Bonaccorsi The team will be losing Bonaccorsi am Davis to graduation.

" The lUP Big Indian Swimming Braves started off the year hosting the lUP relays, Nov. 18. lUP placed fourth with 84 points just behind Fairmont State of Fairmont. Clarion took first place. lUP swam to take a number of strong second and third places during the relays. Opening the regular season November 23, lUP travelled to Bloomsburg where the team met and defeated (63-49) the small but impressive Huskie team. There nine lUP swimmers qualified for the state conference meet. Shaved and tapered, lUP travelled to meet rival Fairmont State on December 7. Prior to the meet Coach Watkins de- scribed the meet as a " barn burner " and that it was. Due to illness, injuries and some " out- standing performances " by their oppo- nent, the Swimming Braves suffered their first loss, 67-46. In January, the Big Indian swimmers met Allegheny College in what was ex- pected to be a very close meet. It turned out to be what Coach Watkins said was " a toss up " for the team ' s best dual meet of the year along with the later Edinboro meet. lUP won 69-44. Every member of the team managed personal or seasonal best times. Being defeated 62-48 by Clarion, Coa- ch Bill Miller commented on how im- pressed he was by lUP ' s performance, predicting that the team would do quite well at the state meet. Hearing of the Brave ' s swimming strength, the Fighting Scots of Edinboro came to have some fun for the day. lUP won all but four of the 13 events as the Braves raced the clock on to a 66-47 win in what Coach Watkins said was " the most rewarding meet that (he has) ever been in as a coach. " lUP ended its regular season February 15 on a high note with a 65-43 victory over Slippery Rock to bring its final tally to 5-2. Next came the PSAC meet February 27 - March 1 at Clarion, where the 1985-86 squad placed third with 245 points behind Clarion (602) and Shippensburg (308). Coach Watkins said, " This may be the best championship performance by any lUP team since the middle 70 ' s. We had many swimmers doing life-time and sea- son bests, and our 245 points reflects the number of swimmers we were able to place in the preliminary and final heats. " Citing one individual as a reflection of this year ' s success. Coach Watkins named freshman Brian Eckenrode as this year ' s top performer. Topping an incredible sea- son as the team ' s No 1 distance freestyler, Eckenrode went a few strokes more. At the PSAC meet, Eckenrode high- lighte d lUP ' s first-round action with his 4:48.36 500 freestyle record. He placed third in the finals. Eckenrode swam on to break two lUP records in the 1 ,000 and 1,650. -Thad Meckley 118 Sports Top le t: Doug Olson nails an excellent baclcdive. gets a good start oil the blocks.

They did achieve an encore and sur- passed it. They won Regionals again, cap- tured their third straight Pa. Conference crown, improved their national champion- ship meet finish from eighth to sixth and watched two sophomores achieve AU- American honors. Susan Wahl achieved AU-American sta- tus in both the vault and floor exercise. Gina Gover did so on the uneven bars and missed becoming the national cham- pion in her event by one tenth of a point. According to Coach Dan Kendig, the NCAA Regional Meet, hosted by lUP, was the most exciting meet for him. The team achieved their highest meet score ever, 178.4, including a team record 44 on the uneven bars. They won all four events. " We hit it. We were four for four, " Ken- dig said. " We had our best meet ever in a time when we really needed it. " In their regular season the Lady Braves achieved a 15-9 record. They reached a team score of better than 170 in nine of the 13 meets. They achieved this score only twice in the 84-85 season. The 85-86 team received a third place ranking among all division II and III teams in the country as published by the Nation- al Association of Collegiate Coaches Wo- men and A.T. Cross Co. This success was achieved because of the whole team, according to Kendig. " The whole year was a team effort. No one person made this year great. The whole team did.

Mental Skill Part Of Rifle " The patience and togetherness of the rifle team were significant attributes to the ' 85- ' 86 year. Rifle is a sport which enables a member to achieve what he puts into it — " It is one to grow on, " stated Steve Hornick, a member of the lUP rifle team. The rifle team was under the instruction of Coach Thomas Campisano for the sea- son. The team consisted of 12 members, with the nucleus of the team consisting of approximately eight members. Unfortu- nately, the season was very difficult for the team. Their standing for the season was three wins and nine losses. The season was a ' building year ' for the team; ' not enough depth ' was intermingled within the members. " But, the players tried as hard as they could, " replied Coach Campisano. Most of the members were first year competitors. The three matches the team won were against Saint Francis (twice) and Edin- boro. Respective scores were 10-13x and 8-06; ll-12x and 10-12x. The competition was rough, but the experience was need- ed to build skill. " The personal growth 1 experienced played an important part in shooting. Rifle is a mental sport, unlike football, for example, which engages in physical competition. Concentration, skill, and a keen eye are important, " said Kathy Lesic, a freshman team member. Coach Campisano said that he is look- ing forward to a good year next season. He is anticipating more freshman with experience. -Debbie Hackman Above: Pete Yaslishock lining up his target. 4 Sports v - 5 lelt: Mark Weiss showing line form.

Landing a second place team finish in the PSAC championships, the men ' s track and field team showed what combined individual efforts can do. lUP ' s track and field season was filled with many individual successes that to- gether made an impressive team. This first became evident at the Liberty University Open. Although no team scores were kept, lUP came home with 9 medals (first thur. third), including two first places in the shot and discus by Eugene Dellemonache. At the Towson Invitational the men topped 14 other teams winning the team title with 87 points. They then continued on to the lUP Track and Field Open. Eight team members won nine events, they were — Dellemonache(shot put); Dave Medvetz (pole vault), Greg Caprara (ham- mer throw), Mike Lockhart (triple jump and 200), Dave Maudie (lavelin), Tom Doran (1500), Roger Sloan (110 high hur- dles) and Rob Houk (400). The men turned in a similar performance at the lUP Invita- tional as well. The PSAC championships saw four lUP athletes win their events. Dellemonache won both the discus and the shot. Med- vetz won the decatholon. Lockhart won the triple jump and Larry McDonough took the 10,000 race. Doran and Maudie placed second m the 5,000 and the jave- lin, respectively.

The team started out their spring season v ith a seventh place finish at the Camp Lejeune Invitational in North Carolina. They followed this performance with a sixth place out of 25 teams at the Navy Invitational in Annapolis, MD. The winning streak began with the Champion Lakes Invitational. lUP topped ten other teams, and senior Ben Witter finished second, one stroke ahead of teammate Ty Grove. The West Liberty Invitational saw the golfers take the top three finishes to win the title. Dan Pelczarski captured the top spot, followed by Doug Gradwell and Witter in second and third, respectively. At the Penn State Invitational the team tied for third in a field of 20 teams. Following Penn State, the golfers spent a weekend at " home " - capturing the lUP Invitational title for the third consecutive year. Pelczarski took the top spot for his second time, while Witter placed second. The Penn National Country Club in Chambersburg was the scene for lUP ' s victory at the PSAC championships. Pelc- zarski placed first, followed by Witter in third, Gradwell in sixth, and John Sweeney and Grove tied for tenth. Witter also won the long drive competition with 292 yards. The team finished up their season in Tampa, Florida for the NCAA champion- ship. lUP placed eleventh out of 16 teams. Both Witter and Pelczarski were named All-Amencans and Witter won the long drive competiton. -Cynthia Carmickle 136 Sports Top iett: Dan Pelczarski warms up for his shot.

A 12-2 overall record was the end prod- uct of a successful season for the 1986 men ' s tennis team. The season was filled with 9-0 shutout victories over Saint Vincent, Saint Francis, Duquesne, Shippensburg, Lock. Haven, Penn State Behrend, Gannon and Frostburg. The teams two loses came at the hands of MillersviUe (8-1) and Pitt (3-6). Perhaps the most satisfying victory for the players was a 5-4 win over Edinboro. Tennis coach Vince Celtnieks was quoted in the April 25 issue of the Penn as saying, " I ' ve been coaching seven years and we ' ve never beaten them. It feels damn good to finally win. " The season ended with a fifth place fin- ish at the PSAC Championships at Millers- viUe. Brad Hanes (No. 1), Jim Welker (No. 3) and Tim Nuss (No. 5) each advanced to the semi-finals in singles play before be- ing eliminated. - Cynthia Carmickle 138 Sports Sports 139 WORKING TOGETHER TO CHEER OUR TEAMS ONWARD Showing Spirit And Support For Sports Enthusiasm, spirit, stunts and cheers are all words that one associates with the active lUP cheerleaders. The cheerlead- ing squad consists oi 20 men and women for football games and 16 men and wom- en for basketball games. Also, one can see the lUP Indian mascots down on the field or court every now and then. For these sports, vfhe cheerleaders put in a lot of time during practices to ' polish up ' their rou- tines. Practices are held in the Memorial Field House, two or three times a week. During these practices, they work on their aerobic exercises, such as lifts, mounts, and human towers. " Sometimes we have a hard time dur- ing the practices, we have to work togeth- er and it has its difficult moments. But, when we are on the field or court and see our team playing, we all become the best of friends, working towards a purpose . . . to support and encourage our team to victory. Then the thoughts of those frus- trating practices disappear and the unity at the game is fantastic, " stated Dan Woodring, co-captain of the squad. In the fall ( ' 85) the cheerleaders partici- pated in the UCA Cheerleading Champi- onship and achieved sixth position out of 150 participating groups in the Division II squads. This is an outstanding accom- plishment, considering that the cheer- leaders are not under the direction of a coach or advisor. They conduct all the practices by themselves, working together to cheer ' our team ' onward. -Debbie Hackman Opposite page lelt: From left to right: Stephanie Johnson, Stacey Tannehill, Lucy McNabb, Cheryl Cain, Mary Casey, Michelle McKee, Chris Papik. and Cindy Slivale Opposite p ge right: Senior cheerleader Lucy McNabb Top lelt: Doug Carnahan and lean Barno showing spirit and teamwork Middle: Top row: Chris Papik; 3rd row: lelt to right, Gina Lokay and lean Barno; 2nd row: Robin Middleton and Suzanne Gray; 1st row: Ray Galloway and Joe Underwood Bottom right: An enthusiastic Jean Barno!

The March 24 event paid tribute to the athletes of lUP that obtained AU-American honors in either the spring of 1985, the fall of 1985 or the 1985-86 winter seasons. Six lUP teams had athletes attending the dinner. The women ' s cross country team was the best represented with seven honorees. The seven member team achieved their honor by placing third in the NCAA Division II national champion- ship. Junior Tammy Donnelly lead the team by placing fourth in this champion- ship meet. Elisa " Weezie " Benzoni, a sophomore, placed 24th at the meet; fol- lowed by sophomore Lisa Bonaccorsi in 29th, senior Kathy Ewmg 28th, senior Mary Alice 32nd, Elizabeth Urquhart 44th and senior Nanci Line 45th. Donnelly was also honored for her fourth place finish in the 10,000 meter run at the NCAA Division II national track and field championships last spring in Los Angeles. Two sports had three AU-Americans each, football and golf. Former head foot- Lelt: Chris Lang, Rob Allen, and Ben Witter social- ize. Top hit: Chris Lang is honored.

Ingold was named an honorable mention from the Associated Press ' Ail-American " small college " team. Plevelich, the start- ing center with quarterback Ingold, also received honorable mention from the As- sociated Press for his performances dur- ing this fall ' s season. Plevelich and In- gold ' s teammate, Seidel, fourth year first team fullback for lUP, was also cited by the AP as an honorable mention. Only one of the golf team ' s All-Ameri- cans was able to attend the dinner, senior Ben Witter stepped forth to be recognized for third year in a row as an AU-American. Witter placed 44th last spring at the NCAA Division II national championship. He also won the tournament ' s long drive contest. The other two golfers, Joe Klinchok, a business administration graduate in May 1985, and Dan Pelczarski, a senior, placed 24th and 21st respectively at Nationals. Both were named honorable mention Ail- Americans for their finishes at this event. The men ' s swimming team was repre- sented by an athlete with great swimming abilities as well as outstanding academic talents. Sophomore Chris Lang was rec- ognized for his swimming performances at the NCAA Division II championships last year (17th in the 200 butterfly, 28th in the 100 and a member of the 400 yard medley relay that placed 17th) and his 3.85 grade point average. These factors more than qualified Lang for the honor of Academic Ail-American from the College Swimming Coaches Association of America. The sixth team to have an AU-American was the men ' s track and field team. lUP graduate, Rob Allen placed fifth in the javelin at the NCAA Division II national championship meet in Los Angeles last spring to capture this honor. The voice of the Big Indians Bill Otto served as master of ceremonies for the occasion. Also making remarks were lUP president John D.Welty, lUP athletic di- rector Frank Cignetti and lUP associate athletic director Ruth Podbielski. Each sports coach of the represented teams in- troduced their athletes. The event was or- ganized by lUP ' s Sports Information Office. -Cynthia Carmickle 142 Sports Sports 143 THANKS EXTENDED TO COACHES AND ATHLETES Sports Clubs And Intramurals Recognized These fifty pages are not enough to con- tain all of the outstanding sports activities which take place at lUP on more than a varsity level. lUP has several excellent sports clubs that are not directly sponsored by the uni- versity. Teams such as the Rugby Football Club (Pg. 168), the lUPisces (Pg. 151), the Apache Ice Hockey team, the Equestrian team and the Men ' s Volleyball team have achieved great success during the year. Also on the lUP sports scence are the numerous intramural programs organized by Royden Grove and his staff. The vari- ety and enjoyment that can be found in these programs makes them a great asset to lUP. The Oak staff would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the coaches and athletes who helped us with this sec- ton. We would also like to thank Larry Judge and Pat Pettina of Sports Informa- tion for providing us with team photos and action shots (when we needed them). Thanks also goes to Jim Wakefield and his staff for getting the photos processed. -Cynthia Carmickle 144 Sports Sports 145 146 Oraanizations f N etting involved at lUP is easy with the wide variety of organizations on campus.

The Student Dietetic Association is geared toward making its mem- bers more aware of the career they ' re pursuing. " Another one of our activities, " said Penny Grant, historian of the association, " is helping the commu- nity in health care as well as other areas. " Some of these activities in- clude participation in the yearly Health Fair at the Indiana Mall and taking part in the Visitors to the Aged program. Some of the events that the group sponsors for itself include a Career Day every spring, where students can listen to speakers from the field of dietetics, a Christmas party and a spring picnic. The Student Dietetic Association was approved by the SGA Oct. 19, 1978 and by the Senate on Nov. 28, 1978. -Holly Stoner Office Admin.

I.U.P. ' s Omicron Xi chap- ter was organized in 1969 and re- started in 1978. The organization seeks to develop competent, aggres- sive leadership by involving its members in service projects and by creating interest in American busi- ness enterprise. In 1985, lUP ' s chapter was fourth in the Pennsylvania Outstanding Chapter Balloting. The organization is active in community activities — this year Phi Beta Lambda partici- pated in a fund raiser for the March of Dimes at the Activities Fair. Other activities included a Halloween fund raiser, a hayride in November, and a Christmas fund raiser. The group also attended the Phi Beta Lambda Fall Regional Convention in Balti- more on Nov. 1 , 2, 3. In the summer, the group attends the National Lead- ership Conference. lUP ' s chapter of Phi Beta Lambda is unique because it can app)eal to the interests of all business majors. " Phi Beta Lambda is a multi-faceted business club, " President Allen Ste- vens said. " Unlike departmental clubs, we can appieal to the interests of all business majors.

What you may come up with is synchronized swimming. lUP ' s ver- sion of this sport comes in the form of the lUPisces. The lUPisces were founded in 1975. One of the team ' s main pur- poses is to advance the knowledge of synchronized swimming in syn- chro, as a sport and as a form of entertainment, according to team member Wendy Stroup, " Not too many people are aware that lUP has a synchro team, " she said. Synchro is a form of underwater ballet that entails team members do- ing moves simultaneously. This re- quires perfect timing by the swim- mers as well as the ability to hold their breath for long periods of time since they are usually underwater. After long practices at Zink Pool, the team took their show to meets at Vassar and to the state champion- ships at Penn State. They then moved on to regionals, where they placed very well last year. Their ulti- mate goal is the national champion- ships, for which they qualified last year. Besides their contribution to lUP sports, the girls have also become involved in other campus activities. They sponsored Jeff Brooks, Mr. lUP, in this year ' s pageant. With the recognition they have re- ceived in competitions as well as their outside activities, the lUPisces are well on their way to making a name for themselves. -Dana Smith Organizations 151 Activities Board The Activities Board (AB) is a stu- dent organization responsible for the majority of the entertainment on the lUP campus. AB is headed by Janet Kirchner, chairwoman. It is broken down into the following committees: contem- porary music, film and video, special events, recreation, hospitality, pub- lic relations, and graphics. Each of these is also headed by a chairperson. AB sponsors the weekend movies on campus as well as TGIF ' s. TGIF ' s were held two Fridays in the student union in the fall semester. A local band played all afternoon for no charge. AB brought three comedians to lUP in the fall of 1985, Yakov Smir- noff, Andy Andrews, and Edward Jackson. They sponsored a Tina Fa- brique concert in Fisher Auditorium on Nov. 1, 1985. Other events which AB spon- sored in the fall of 1985 are as fol- lows: a vid eo dance, casino night, " Pieces of a Dream " which was co- sponsored with the Black Cultural Center, and " We Can Make You Laugh. " In the spring they sponsored " Spring Weekend " April 24-27. Dan Peek, former member of the group America, was featured in his concert in the Flagstone Theater on the 27th. Spring also brought the appear- ance of three more comedians: Jeff Justice, Alex Cole, and Tom Deluca. The AB concerts for the spring semester were Haywire on Jan. 24, Joey G. and the Brick Alley Band on Feb. 1 , Modern Man on March 21 , a Speidel, Goodrich and Lille on April 27.

" lUP ' s RHA is part of the national organization known as NACURH (National Association of College and University Residence Halls). It was established in lUP in 1973. Throughout the 1985-86 school year, RHA was active in many differ- ent ways. They held the annual haunted house in Whitmyre Hall and a dance at Steady Mick ' s, both which benefited UNICEF and the Alice Paul House. They also held candy and flower sales to raise mon- ey for programs free to students, such as two RHA sponsored movies, " Ghostbusters " and " The Karate Kid. " Through these programs, RHA hopes to gain interest and support from as many students as possible. RHA is always willing to accept peo- ple who want to be involved. •Dana Smith Organizations 153 Food vice Lodging Club The Food Service and Lodging club exposes its members to profes- sionals, through guest speakers and other activities, which encourages them to expect more from them- selves and to aim for higher goals, according to Lisa Herring, the club ' s president. The guest speakers from the food service industry talked to the club during its regular monthly meetings. They helped the students to know what is happening in the industry and what to expect when they begin the job search. Participation in the Pennsylvania Restaurant Association Trade Show February 21 and 22 was another example of how the mem- bers of the Food Service and Lodg- ing Club gained exposure to the professional world. Sponsoring booths at the Home- coming Carnival and The Activities Fair in October, and holding a se- nior breakfast on May 10 were some of the other activities the group was involved in. One of the club ' s most outstand- ing events was the 4th Annual Mad- rigal Feast on Dec. 8. The Madrigal Feast, which is an old Elizabethan style dinner, was held as a scholar- ship fundraiser. The club, which en- listed the help of the music depart- ment to perform at the feast, sold 200 tickets for the event held in the Blue Room of Sutton Hall.

The club is closely associated with the American Marketing Association and attends AMA luncheons in Pitts- burgh. This close association brings students in contact with marketing professionals who can offer future employement opportunities. Other club activities included a speaker from USA Today, a marketing sym- posium in the fall with keynote speaker Daniel Stickler of Presby- terian Hospital and a Christmas din- nerdance held at William Penn Ho- tel in Pittsburgh. The club has been active for the past 15 years at lUP and currently has a membership of over 180. Club members are encouarged to be- come active whthin their organiza- tion. Dave Fazzini, vice-president of advertising and promotions, stated that he tried to use new, creative ideas to advertise the group ' s activi- ties to interested students. He feels that the experience as an officer should help with his career in mar- keting. In addition to Fazzini, the 1986 officers included president Su- san Patton and vice-presidents Mon- ica Curry, John Fletcher, Mark King and Michelle Pollock. " The Marketing Club helped us increase our communication skills and gave us opportunities to interact with marketing professionals in or- der to give us a realistic view of what a career in marketing involves, " said Mark King; vice-president of activities. -Karen Witmer Top: Lett to right. 1985 Marketing Club oUi- cers- John Gatesman.

The association also took tours of companies such as Arthur Young and Co., Deloitte Haskins and Sells and Price Waterhouse. Melissa Shontz, president of the Student Accounting Association, said, " We have contacts with major accounting firms in the Pittsburgh area. They help members to get jobs when they graduate. " The association put out the first accounting department newsletter on the lUP campus. It was distrubut- ed to students, faculty and alumni. -Lesley Holton Organizations 157 Gamma Sigma Sigma Gamma Sigma Sigma is a national sorority which provides service to the campus, community and the na- tion.

' The Newman Center not only provides for the needs of its Catholic population, but is always open to any person who needs support and a friendly hand. Its uniqueness is simply itself, " said Father John Foriska. The center holds special experi- ences at both Christmas and Easter. In the spring a 30 hour fast for world hunger is held at the center. Special groups and activities at the Newman Center include a pro- life committee, the Newman Student Association, classes and study groups.

Kappa Mu Epsilon, the National Honor Society in Mathematics, is the only honors organization that espe- cially recognizes academic achieve- ment in mathematics. The group is in the Pa. Zeta Chap- ter and was chartered on May 6, 1965. Kappa Mu Epsilon is also a member of the Association of Na- tional Honor Societies. Regular meetings are held once a month and they feature speakers that cover some aspect of mathemat- ics. National and regional conven- tions of Kappa Mu Epsilon are held and the members are encouraged to attend. Students who belong to the group are also encouraged to at- tend. Students who belong to the group are also encouraged to pre- sent papers about mathematics. According to Ida Z. Arms, advisor for Kappa Mu Epsilon, " Being a member ... is not only a recognition of students ' academic achievements in college, but it is an added aspect upon graduation. " -Maryann Kolenchak Organizations 161 Unique Clubs Offer Diversions lUP has a vast variety of groups and organizations available to offer interested students unigue college experiences. Over one hundred organizations are recognized by the university. These groups offer diverse activities including bowling, dancing, racquetball, syncron- ized swimming as well as pre-professional and political experiences. tUP organizations offer excitement and entertainment to the everyday monotony of academic life. The Activities Board provided lUP stu- dents with Friday and Saturday night movies that were actually affordable on a college budget. The Equestrian Club pro- vided collegiate competition for skilled riders. Other groups provided valuable ser- vices to the Indiana community as well as the students. The Alpha Phi Omega Book Exchange in the Fall and Spring semes- ters gave everyone a break from Co-Op book prices. Members of the Student Ac- counting Association participated in the VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) program which allowed accounting stu- dents to gain experience preparing taxes while helping elderly and lower income Indiana residents. Another beneficial or- ganization was Vistors to the Aged which gave lUP Students the opportunity to so- cialize with residents of local rest homes. Big Brothers and Big Sisters allowed col- lege students to offer friendship and guid- ance to Indiana children while enjoying the companionship of a youngster. Many of the club sports enjoyed im- pressive records during the 1985-86 se- mesters. Among these outstanding clubs were the Indiana Rugby Football Club, Men ' s Volleyball Club and the lUPisces Synchronized Swimming team. The Rug- by Club took third place in the Alleghany Rugby Union and won the Sugar Cup. The Men ' s Volleyball Club continued to beat many of its Division II opponents this season. The lUPisces took first place in state and regional meets and sixth place in the Intercollegiate Open. All of the club sports provided lUP stu- dents with the opportunity to participate in non-varsity sports and do a great deal of hard work with limited funding; each club deserves commendation for their fine ef- forts regardless of season record. The lUP students are fortunate to have the numerous unique organizations to en- rich their college experience. -Karen Witmer Organizations editor I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the organizations that showed their interest and support for the OAK. I would also like to thank the liason mem- bers who helped identify the group pic- tures and answered endless questions about their organizaiton. Special thanks are extended to James P.

Alpha Phi Omega, national ser- vice fraternity, is co-ed and has 95 brothers. The Mu Chi chapter ws founded on campus December 6, 1959. Dr. Richard Lamberski and Mrs. Elaine Carbaugh advise the fraternity. Alpha Phi Omega donates 85% of its income to organizations such as the Red Cross, Boy Scouts and cam- pus groups. They also provide the book exchange, participate in the 30 hour fast, the Blood Mobile and as- sist some of the Nev man Center ' s activities. Each year the fraternity holds the Homecoming King and Queen and their court on its float. Alpha Phi Omega ' s colors are blue and gold, and their flower is the forget-me-not. John Jackson and Marianne Monteverde were the sweethearts for 1985-86. The nation- al headguarters are in Kansas City, Missouri. The motto is " be a leader, be a friend, be of service. " One brother, Lori Callaway, said, " I think Alpha Phi Omega is the best thing that happened to me. You get what you put into it. The people are caring and that ' s what unites us. " President Kevin Carrai said, " The brothers of Alpha Phi Omega are a very diverse people. Each has a unique personality. Service is the force that binds us in our organiza- tion. Every brother is willing to give up his time to help others. " -Lynne Zoll 163 The Criminology Club Organized at lUP in 1978, the Criminology Club gives criminolo- gy majors a chance to become more knowledgeable about the criminal justice program. The group is spe- cial because the upperclassmen at- tempt to help others with schedules and all members broaden their knowledge of the criminal justice field. " Together we can experience dif- ferent aspects of criminology that in our future may help better or widen the range of accomplishments in the criminal justice field, " President Tra- cy Bunner said. To do this, she says, the club invites speakers from the Pennsylvania State Police, Secret Service and the Western Penitentia- ry to give members insight in the field. The club is also planning on attending the Federal Bureau of In- vestigation Academy. The group participates in the Homecoming Carnival and the Ac- tivities Fair. -Angie Fought Bollom: Criminology Club officers of 1985-86 - Margaret M. Jagella, Tracy L. Bunner, and Brenda L. Heisey.

During the 1985-1986 year the group attended an FBI training academy in Quantico, Virgina. The group also had speakers from the secret service, Pennsylvania State Police and Western Penitentiary. The group is presently working on beginning a security department at lUP. According to Mark Simon, the group is special because it provides members with the opportunity to learn a great deal about the criminal justice field through speakers, train- ing and job placement. -Barbara Smergalski Organizations 165 Student Government Assoc- The lUP Student Government As- sociation is the officially recognized representative body of the students. According to SGA members, the organization " works to ensure that the needs and concerns of students are actively voiced and addressed in the ongoing evolution of the university. " The SGA holds weekly meetings, and some members attend universi- ty functions serving as direct student representatives. The organization includes three external committees: the Budgetary Committee, Student Affairs Commit- tee and Academic Affairs Commit- tee. Other internal SGA committees include Public Relations, Research and Rules. The Tri-campus Commit- tee deals with decisions concerning the lUP branch campuses. " Student Government Associa- tion offers individuals the opportuni- ty to develop professionally and grow personally outside the class- room setting, " said SGA president Bob Sinclair. •Karen Witmer Bottom: SGA Members, Row 1: Lori Cobb, Lisa Morneweclc.

Pershing Rifles The history of the Pershing Rifles originated in 1892 at the University of Nebraska from a drill team creat- ed by John J. Pershing, America ' s first general of the Army. The frater- nity grew nationwide promoting le adership, proficiency, self -disci- pline, and scholarship. On the lUP campus, Pershing Rifles was found- ed in 1961. The organization be- came a national honor society, open to men and women in the university. There were many activities they participated m. They provided color guards for all home football and bas- ketball games. Homecoming and Veterans ' Day parades, Dr. Welty ' s investiture, commencement and ROTC functions. In the spring they travelled to regional competition in the New Jersey and National Com- petition at Purdue University to per- form precision marching and rifle movements. Pershing Rifles is the only group on campus who does color guard and other ceremonies and who com- petes with other universities in stan- dard drill and " trick " drill. " Pershing Rifles has made me bet- ter disciplined, provided opportuni- ties for leadership, and helps me to get the job done efficiently, " replied Daniel Foster when asked what Per- shing Rifles had done for him. -Debbie Hackman 167 Indiana Rugby Football The Indiana Rugby Football Club provides lUP students with the op- portunity to participate in a physical- ly demanding team sport. The Toot- ers are members of the Allegheny Rugby Union and competed in nu- merous matches and tournaments in both Fall and Spring semesters. The 1985-86 season included ten games and two tournaments in the Fall as well as nine games and two tournaments in the Spring. In the Fall, the Tooters took first place at the California State University Tour- nament. They also captured third place at the Allegheny Rugby Un- ioin Tournament held at Mingo Creek State Park. According to members, the Indi- ana Rugby Club has earned the rep- utation of being a competitive force within the Alle gheny Rugby Union. The team boasts a 7-3 record for the Fall season in addition to the two impressive tournament finishes. The team members each have the opportunity to participate in match play; the Indiana Club has A and B sides which gave each Tooter the chance to participate in the one hour and twenty minute matches. After each match the home team hosted a beer party where " grudges were forgotten and singing and commaradery were practiced. " -Karen Witmer Top: Tooters out manuever their opponent.

" -Karen Witmer leg Concert Dance lUP ' s Concert Dance Company promotes all aspects of dance con- centrating on performance and production. The group started under the di- rection of Jane Dakak in the late 1960 ' s. The 115 members present two performances every year, one each semester.

Founded in 1924 at Northwestern University, the organization was formed to foster the study of busi- ness, to encourage high scholarship and participation, to promote profes- sional competency and achieve- ment and to further the high stan- dard of business ethics. The chapter is the only honorary business organization affiliated with a national organization. In addition, the group has won the National Scholarship Cup for the chapter with the highest average grade point for the past five years. The organization hosts a variety of events — among them, several fund- raisers, a Halloween date party and a spring formal. It also observes its Founder ' s Day Feb. 17 and hosts two professional speakers each semester. -Angle Fought Organizations 171 Gamma Rho Tau Gamma Rho Tau is the honorary and professional business fraternity on the lUP campus. Gamma Rho Tau joins together students interested in belonging to an undergraduate professional busi- ness fraternity to promote an aware- ness toward professionalism in the business field. To be eligible students must major in business administration and must meet the academic standards of a 3.25 GPA in business administration and a 3.0 overall GPA. They must also be at least second semester sophomores. These qualifications are rare in a student, but once a student achieves them and becomes a member of Gamma Rho Tau the student is kept involved if that is what they want. " It (Gamma Rho Tau) really makes every member get involved. If you want to be kept busy and get in- volved you can, " Paula Parke, com- mittee coordinator, said. Mr. Donald Robbins was the advi- sor. Denise Componation was the president for the fall 1985 semester. Karen Anderson was the president for the spring 1986 semester. The fraternity sponsored speakers and organized the Business Day held April 9, 1986. They also sent six business students to a conference in New York. Gamma Rho Tau offers a scholar- ship to the business student who combines high academic standings and involvement in campus and community projects. Last year ' s recipient of the schol- arship was Curt Erich, member of Gamma Rho Tau. " The organization has provided me with a lot of valuable information for the future, " Erich said. •Lesley Holton Top: Gamma Rho Tau members: Row 1: Karen Godleski, Paula Parke, Denise Componation, lacquie Phillips.

WiUP-TV, the only natjondl net- work college television affiliate in Pennsylvania, provides interested students with the opportunity to be trained in all aspects of television broadcast and production. Lee larocki, who works with WIUP-TV, said, " It (the station) pro- vides students with working experi- ence in the media field. " The station, which first went on the air in June 1974 as CIUP-TV, was renovated and renamed WIUP-TV in 1983. It strives to provide the uni- versity and the Indiana community with the best possible programming. WIUP-TV is the only television sta- tion in Indiana and the only student operated television facility in Pennsylvania. WIUP — TV made many improve- ments in the 1985-86 school year and programming was extended to eight hours a day, five days a week. In the studios located in Davis Hall, programs are produced and some are broadcast on Cablevision 25 in Johnstown. Home lUP football and basketball games were recorded and aired on both WIUP-TV and the Johnstown station. The station also taped and aired all the Indiana High School football games for the first time. Special and instructional shows were also produced for The Henry George Schoq l of Social Science, the Academfo Computer depart- ment, Special Olympics, Parts World of Dubois and the Communi- cations Media department. Many campus and community events, such as lUP ' s 20th anniver- sary, the investiture of President John D. Welty, Record-A-Child with WDAD and Alexander Haig were covered during the 1985-86 school year. The station also produces five reg- ular weekly shows. These are a " Lecture Series " (a talk show with guests from Indiana), " Storytime " (for children), " IndianAction " (news and sports from the Indiana and sur- rounding areas) and " In Our Neigh- borhood " (a talk show with host Gene Thibadeau, a philosophy professor). WIUP-TV also has two formals. And in 1985, they entered their first float in the Homecoming parade, " Little Red Riding Hood. " -Maryann Kolenchak The Penn It was almost like a ritual — every Monday, Wednesday and Friday as the professor droned and your eye- lids got heavy. You would reach into your knapsack and pull out the day ' s issue of the Penn. Putting each issue together was a ritual m itself. Two days before each issue, the business staff would go to work with nine ad reps scouring the Indiana area for ads to appear in the Penn. Sometimes it was easy, other times advertising director Theresa Wachna would step in to help. Busi- ness manager Ed Boito kept the pa- per financially solvent and gave out his monthly good news, " Your guota of advertising inches for this month is ... " After the business staff called it a day, production manager Roger Barnhart and half of his staff, would start putting the ads together, typing each ad and laying it out. They would also type the personals and other classifieds for the upcoming paper. Usually the job was done in four or five hours, but some issues kept the staff too busy too long. Ad production for each of the registra- tion issues took almost three days. Early the next morning, 24 hours before the paper was printed, The- resa Wachna would determine the size of the paper based on the num- ber of ads sold. After lunch, the edi- torial staff would come in, beginning with the associate editors. These three would sift through the piles of Associated Press stories that had typed over the wire throughout the night and place it on the desks of the news, features and sports editors. When the section editors came in, they read over the copy and decid- ed on the content of the next day ' s Penn, mixing staff and local stories with Associated Press and College Press Service stories. Meanwhile, the photographers were out shoot- ing the photos assigned for the issue. Once the stories were set to be typed, the second half of the pro- duction department moved in to type and journey the stories. After dinner, the pace picked up as editor Eric Cotton and the section editors began designing pages, writing Top: Editor Eric Cotton, front, teaches his own form of discipline to the Penn staff.

Depending on how the typesetting machines were behaving, editorial production could be over by mid- ninght. Or, as the case often was, last until the wee hours of the morning. On some occasions, such as the Sup)er Bowl or election nights, Eric Cotton and his crew would sit, wait- ing for stories to come over the Asso- ciated Press wire. Those nights were the longest with trips to Sheetz and office pranks breakmg the boredom. Once the story appeared, there would be time for editing, typing and journeying to be done, some- times taking an hour or two more. And the 6 a.m. deadline got too close on a night or two. The next morning, the Penn would hit campus after 48 hours in the making — our ritual that kept you going. And awake. Jim. Devlin This year was a big one lor the Penn. with several changes that had the paper reaching lor a new image. The most important, and most drastic, was Ihe look ol the paper. Editor Eric Cotton and Brook Duer, lealures editor lor Ihe {all semes- ter, designed a new look over Ihe summer and belore school started in September, and brought Ihe Penn into Ihe dOs Vrilh a more modern look. With a new masthead, dillerenl headline styles and more imaginative layouts. Ihe Penn established ilsellas the best paper in the state system ol higher education. The Penn also changed its image toward becoming a complete campus source — ex- tended coverage ol campus events and more m-deplh reporting led Ihe way. Three editori- al assistants were also added to the stall, dig- ging up the lads lor such stories as lUP ' s snow removal methods, asbestos at lUP and the stale and luture ol lederal aid at lUP. For the lirsl time, the Penn appeared at home lootball games, lollowing Ihe Big Indi- ans to the conlerence championship. An ex- perimental Saturday issue was printed lor Homecoming, 1984. and it was such a suc- cess, live more issues were printed in Ihe lall ol 1985 lor all home games. For Ihe business side ol the paper. 1985-86 school year was also an important one. For the lirsl lime in Ihe paper ' s history. Ihe Penn grossed more than $200.00 in advertising rev- enue, pulling it third behind Ihe Co-op Store and Ihe Athletic Department lor Ihe amount ol money raised. There were also plenty ol personals this year, providing students with a cheap way to gel a message through to readers. This was Ihe lirsl lull year ol the Penn ollice in Ihe Hadley Union Building, giving Ihe pa- per a new image, thai ol a prolessional orga- nization.

That ' s what six lUP students did by taking part in the Nestle Quik Spring Break Challenge. Seniors Eric Cotton, Roger Barnhart, Theresa Wachna, Tracey Secrest, Rob Fu- sia and sophomore Jane Miller formed the Penn ' s " Quik " team and built the piano. The team orginally had 10 members, but the number dropped to six as the time consuming project began. According to Cotton and Barnhart each member of the team put roughly 70 hours into the pro- ject; including workmg three Satur days straight in some cases. The project began around the time of mid-terms. It took the team a month to build the piano. The idea to build a grand piano came from Miller. The team mem- bers all agreed upon the idea. They had also considered the Statue of Liberty, but decided it would be too hard to replicate because of the great detail involved. A grand piano in Gorrell Recital Hall was measured and checked for details. The Quik piano was close to a real grand piano in every respect; except the legs were shorter, there were not 88 keys and there were no strings. The piano had a top that raised and lowered and came com- plete with pedals. Aside of Quik boxes, the team used styrofoam sheets, cardboard, three wood- en table legs, tape and staples to build the piano. They built it piece by piece at the Penn, storing the parts on top of the new desk arrangements and shelves in the office. The Quik piano was not completely as- sembled until two days before the final deadline for pictures. This was the first time the piano was fully assembled. The team members pieced it together in the multi-purpose room of the HUB. " The most frustrating part (of putting the piano together) was the wobbly legs, " said Barnhart. Above: Barnhart. Secrest, tvliller, Wachna and Cotton pose with the creation (Fusia took the photograph). Why did these students spend all this time on the project? A lust for chocolate milk? No, it was a quest for the grand prize, $10,000 or an all-expense paid trip to Spring Break in Florida for up to 24 team members compliments of the Nestle Corporation. The first prize was Honda motor scooters for every team member, and second prize was Swatch watches for each team member. lUP ' s Penn Quik team was one of five second place winners and each of them received a Swatch watch. They found out from Nestle ' s that they were only two places away from the grand prize. The Penn Quik team was happy with their place, after all, the grand prize winners built a replica of the Mayflower that floated. -Cynthia Carmickle J 76 Organizations One Last Look v Top: After the punch is made H.E.A. mem- bers Idllc.

There are 19 university recognized fraternities and 1 7 sororities on the lUP campus. All of them offer an individual a chance to become involved, whether it be a fund raiser or a date party. The social Greeks at lUP are very active on campus. They sponsor many events, including Anchor Splash, Derby Days and Greek Week. Each fraternity and sorority has its own philanth- rophy which the members raise contributions for — making these organizations more than " socialable " but an asset to the community as well.

In the fall, ASA ' s and Theta Chi ' s Home- coming float won fourth place in the parade. And April proved to be the busiest month for the sisters and pledges. The sisters and pledges helped Sigma Chi raise money for Camp Orenda, a camp for the mentally and physically disabled children, by participating in Der- by Days. They also participated in Greek Week, and in Greek Sing with Theta Xi, and they held their formal in Pittsburgh. A special event for ASA was the opportunity to host this year ' s State Day, when ASA sisters from other universities met for a lun- cheon and heard several speakers. In between all of these activi- ties, ASA found time to achieve the second highest QPA for so- rorities on campus. ASA also has a philanthropy, which through individual contri- butions and annual contributions from each collegiate and alum- nae chapter, provides national scholarships to the sisters. The na- tional headquarters are located in Springfield, Mo.

Sigma Kappa supports their national philanthropy, gerontolo- gy, locally by visiting various nursing homes at least once a month and helping out with games at the homes. The sorority also participated in a philanthropic event with Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity by visit- ing the Home for Retarded Citi- zens in Ebensberg, Pa. At the end of the spring semes- ter, Sigma Kappa participated in the annual Greek Sing competi- tion with Phi Sigma Kappa doing a dance to a medley of songs from " Chorus Line. " The spring semester 17 mem- bers of Sigma Kappa graduated; " So we ' re looking forward to meeting a lot of new girls next year, hoping to be involved in more campus activities and work- ing to make Sigma Kappa a stron- ger sorority than it already is, " chapter President Michelle Dun- lap said. -Lisa Crkvenac Sigmd Kdpps: Row 7— Andrea Nardina, Amy Scliively, Missy Fulmer, Gwen Schweiger, Becky McCollum, Leah Maisl, Angie Scibelli Row 2 — Leigh Ann Jones, Karen Lieb, Lori Lynch, Michelle Dunlap, Kelly Schively, Laura Lundy, Lisa Crkvenac, Jennifer Adams, Kathy Sey- mour.

They have had an enjoyable and busy year, according to Beth O ' Leary, Tri-Sig ' s president. Tri-Sigs were involved in two charitable events in the Fall se- mester of 1985-86 year. They were in a walk with the Kappa Delta Rho Fraternity to raise mon- ey for Pittsburgh ' s Children ' s Hospital. They also had a balloon assen- tion at lUP, which raised money for the Robbie Page Memorial Fund, their philanthropy. " We enjoyed these events, " Kathy Barron, a Tri-Sig, said. " We were so glad we could do something to help people. " Mrs. Glott is their advisor. And their colors are royal purple and white. The Tri-Sigs had another achievement this year when they received first place in Derby Days, sponsored by Sigma Chi to raise money for Camp Orenda. They also participated in Delta Gamma ' s Anchor Splash in the fall and Greek Week activities, held in the the spring. " We had a very special and productive year, " Beth O ' Leary said.

" It was a one of a kind learning experience that I ' ll never forget. " This year, under the direction of their advisor. Dr. Richard Lam- berski, the 48 members of Delta Rho Chapter of Tau Kappa Epsi- lon have been involved in a vari- ety of activities. During Homecoming Tekes, as they are commonly known, and Concert Dancers took fourth place with their float based on the fairytale " Jack and the Beanstalk. " In October, the brothers and little sisters had the honor of see- ing their own Tony Giannini en- ter in Alpha Gamma Delta ' s Mr. lUP Contest. He was sponsored by Sigma Kappa. Also during the fall, the fraternity took 3rd place in Delta Gamma ' s Anchor Splash. During Greek Sing Tekes and Zeta Tau Alpha performed to " Cotton Club. " According to social chairman Paul Predmore, " Tekes did well during Greek Sing ' 86, and we hope to do even better next year. " Tekes, who were founded at lUP Oct. 30, 1979, raise money for St. Jude ' s Children ' s Hospital, their national philanthropy. This year they worked with their brother chapter from West 196 Greeks Virginia on their annual Keg Roll to raise money for the hospital. The Keg started at West Virginia and travelled to lUP, its final destination. This fall Tekes sponsored their first Lift-a-Thon to raise money for the pediatric unit at Indiana Hospital. According to Predmore, " Our first Lift-a-Thon, which was based on the number of pounds a con- testant could bench press, was successful, but we hope to make it an annual event and make each year better than the preceding year. " Predmore believes that by working together, the brothers and little sisters can do a lot for the community. " Tekes is a fraternity that pro- motes both unity of brotherhood and little sisterhood, " Predmore said. " America ' s fraternity is our motto, " Antonilli said, " and we ' re trying to live up to it as best we can. We want people to know who Tekes are. " Antonilli wishes to thank the brothers, little sisters, their sweet- heart, Renee Sabol, and their mascot, Jerome, for a job well done. " Tekes will do even better in 1987, " he said. -Lynne Todd Tau Kappa Epsilon: Sow 1 — Lisa Dunn, Chris Home.

" " Campus life is not an event; it is an attitude, " believes Theta Chi President Bob Purdue, " And we do all that we can to express a positive attitude toward each oth- er and everything we under- take. " Theta Chi, which came on the lUP campus in 1957, does not have one specific philanthropy. Rather, the 59 members of Epsi- Ion Eta Chapter , under the direc- tion of their advisors. Dr. John Wood and Dr. Neil Asting, have sponsored several activities and events this year to raise money for different civic and charitable organizations. For instance, they sponsored Jump Rope for Heart to raise money for the American Heart Association. And with the help of nine sororities that participated in the event, they sponsored a series of powder-puff football games to raise money for Indian Haven Home. Theta Chi also donated money to the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation and United Way. This spring they sponsored the Theta Chi Marathon and, with the help of Delta Zeta Sorority, a Night at the Races to raise proceeds for this year ' s philanthropies. During Homecoming, Theta Chi and Alpha Sigma Alpha So- rority won fifth place with their float based on the story of " Bambi. " During Greek Sing, Theta Chi and Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority rocked to a 50s medley that included " Jail House Rock " and " Rock Around the Clock. " " Being president of Theta Chi has made this year extra special for me, " Purdue said. " Everyone from our sweetheart, Lisa Dudas, to our mascot, Natasha, has worked to make Theta Chi Frater- nity an organization to be proud of, " he said. " Be yourself; be a Theta Chi is our motto. And each of us works to be the best he can be, thereby making Theta Chi the best it can be. This is what we believe in and strive for, " Purdue said. -Lynne Todd Greeks 197 Theta Phi Alpha Have you ever wondered what it was like to be a new organiza- tion? Theta Phi Alpha was formed March 1 , 1986 with its first pledge class in the fall 1986, President Carolyn Bucher started a local sorority, Beta Xi in November 1984. There was not enough interest to form a chap- ter, so Theta Phi Alpha asked to take over. Bucher and friends put a lot of time into becoming the Alpha Epsilon chapter of Theta Phi Alpha. Their motto, " Nothing great is ever achieved without much en- during, " is a great example of Bucher and her friends. Without their endurance, this group would not be in existence today. The 43 member sorority is ad- vised by Dr. Thorton. Their flower is the white rose and its colors are sapphire blue, silver and gold. Their nickname is Theta Phi ' s. Glenmary Misison of Ohio is their philanthropy since it started as a Catholic sorority in Michi gan. Their symbol is the compass. Since the colors of balloons represent individuality and swans are graceful, their mascots are balloons and swans. Theta Phi Alpha ' s activities in- cluded raising money for cere- bral palsy and Camp Orenda for handicapped children. They also sponsored the Spring Festival with Phi Delta Theta. The sorority was also involved with Derby Days, Greek Week and the Beautiful Eyes contest which was sponsored by Delta Gamma. The first event they par- ticipated in was Delta Gamma ' s Anchor Splash. -Lynne Zoll Far right: This Theta Phi Alpha looks hap- py to be done with her relay.

" Twenty-four fraternities and sororities had fun " making waves " while raising money during Delta Gamma ' s Anchor Splash. Anchor Splash is an " almost anything goes " water competition held in Zink pool to raise money for Sight Conservation and Aid to the Blind. Participating groups compete in various events from freestyle relays to the feature event, The Battle of the Bananas. This fifth annual event, held on Nov. 3 raised more than $2,400 for Delta Gam- ma ' s philanthropies doubling previous years and setting a record attendance at the event. Phi Delta Theta fraternity and Alpha Sigma Tau sorority recaptured their first place titles from the previous year while Alpha Tau Omega fraternity and Theta Phi Alpha sorority displayed the most en- thusiasm during the splash and received the spirit award. King and Queen Neptune candidates entertained the crowd during the beauty contest portion of the the event. Alpha Tau Omega ' s Brian Braden and Theta Phi Alpha ' s Germaine Bayer were crowned the royal couple after being judged on appearance, originality and presentaion. While the scores were tabulated, one member from each team participated in The Battle of the Bananas. Participants dove into the pool at the sound of the gun in search of 150 floating bananas. The winners were determined by the greatest number of bananas they could stuff into their bathing suits. The winners left the water with 19 bananas. Delta Gamma co-chairmen Debbie Cox and Cyndi Nace put a lot of time and work to see that this year ' s event was a success. -Michele Knoch f . Greeks 199 Derby Days Sigma Chi raised almost $500 during its 12th annual Derby Days, an event designed to raise money for Camp Orenda, a camp that provides facilities for the mentally and physically handi- capped children of Indiana County and its sur- rounding areas. Derby Days, v hich ran from April 2-5, was de- signed with the participation of sororities in mind. Throughout the co urse of the event, the sororities try to accumulate as many points as possible. For example, on the first day, the participants decorat- ed the Sigma Chi house according to the year ' s theme, Derby " Disney " Days. The second night, the participants were judged on spirit and how well they did in a pie toss compe- tition. During the first two nights, they also scouted around campus for derbys. The next day was the Golden Derby Hunt, which one derby hat, worth 50 points, was hidden and clues were given out. Derby Days concluded on the last day with a series of games, a parade of the sororities with their coaches dressed according to the theme and the presentation of the Derby Days Queen Award. Alpha Sigma Alpha ' s Roxanne Schneider was crowned as this year ' s queen. The winning soror- ities overall were 1st place Sigma Sigma Sigma, 2nd place Alpha Sigma Alpha and 3rd place Delta Gamma. According to Derby Days Chairman, Michael Velette, " Derby Days is getting bigger and better. We had our first corporate sponsor the year. Iron City Brewery. We hope to have them support us next year too. " Velette also said, " One of the things we ' re shooting for is full participation. " This year eight of the 13 sororities participated, but Velette said he would like to see all of them get involved next year. According to Maribeth McGrogan of Alpha Sigma Alpha, " I had a really good time participat- ing m Derby Days. What made it even more spe- cial for me was that my sorority did so well. We came in second, raised the most money and had Roxanne crowned as queen. The important thing, though, is that we raised money for a good cause while having fun. " Carol Fatula of Sigma Sigma Sigma agreed that Derby Days was a lot of fun. She said, " It was one of my first experiences as a Greek, and I really en- joyed it. I ' m very proud that we came in first. We put a lot of effort into it, and it paid off. I ' m looking forward to next year. " Velette is looking forward to next year too. " It ' s a good time, and I hope everyone gets into it. " he said. -Lynne Todd i ' ji .. Top ye ; Phi Mu winning " Musical Ice Buclcels. " Top right: Jim Price.

Been Despite cold and rainy weather, lUP ' s Greek Week 1 986 proved to be a good time for all those involved. Greek Week ran from April 10-18. Social Greek organizations participated in a wide variety of events including hospital bed racing, banner con- test, volleyball, weightlifting and Chevette stuffing. Phi Delta Theta and Delta Zeta were the first place fraternity and sorority. According to Phi Delt brother Dave Hamilton, Phi Delts " were very enthusiastic (about their Greek Week victory) because we ' re a young fra- ternity and not only do we have the largest mem- bership and grade point average, winning Greek Week was another feather in our cap. " Second place wins went to Sigma Nu and Theta Phi Alpha; while Alpha Tau Omega and Sigma Kappa placed third in the fraternity and sorority divisions, repectively. The week was sponsored by the Interfraternity and the Panellienic Councils. All donations from the Greek Week raffle benefited Meals on Wheels. -Cynthia Carmickle Top: Banners decorated the Oak Grove during Greek Week.

Your photos do not appear in the book because due to a processing error, none ol the photos were printable. This error became apparent alter the end ol the spring ' 86 semester and photos could not be rescheduled. Thank you lor your coop- eration and support. -The Oak Staff As a new way to improve the Oak ' s Greek section, the staff decided to sponsor a " Unique Greek " contest. All fraternities and sororities who appeared in this book were eligible to submit candidates. The majority of them did, however some candi- dates were unavailable for com- ment. The winners were selected by a panel of five judges from the Oak staff. None of the judges had any Greek affiliations. We thank those candidates who participated and we congratulate the two winners, Joyce Sadowski and Darien Norman. Junior nursing major and psychology minor Joyce Sadowski was selected by the judges as the most unique female Greek. Joyce Sadowski Alpha Sigma Tau ' s Unique Greehi Joyce was Alpha Sigma Tau ' s candidate. She currently holds the office of publicity in her sorority. She was also chosen as most inspirational pledge and most spirit- ed sister during the years she has been an AST. Joyce related a " unique " experience in her Oak Unique Greek Questionnaire. She was AST ' s representative for Queen Neptune during Delta Gamma ' s Anchor Splash. Wearing a green crinolin dress and shell crown, Joyce threw licorce fish to the crowd. The highlight of this day for Joyce (and others) was pulling a real fish from the front of her dress and throwing it into the crowd. Joyce ' s life is not all fun and games. She has personally financed her entire educa- 204 Greeks Winners . . . Darien Norman Tau Kappa Epsilon s Unique Greek tion by working during the academic year, as well as during the summer months. During the academic year, she works 20 to 35 hours while maintaining a 3.67 QPA. Joyce was chosen for a full scholarship to study psychology in Plym- outh England for the 1986-87 academic year. Joyce has participated in various activi- ties including lUP majorettes. Concert Dance, German Club, Ski Club, SNAP (Student Nurses Association of PA) and VITA (Visitors to the Aged). Joyce believes that " creative craziness " is essential and her motto is " To be what we are and to become what we are capa- ble of becoming is the only true end to life. " Tau Kappa Epsilon ' s Darien Norman was selected as the most unique male Greek. Darien is a junior and lists his ma- jor as " Risky Business- Army. " The members of TKE nicknamed Dar- ien " Dr. DooRight. " Darien does not drink and he " tries to do what is good. " Darien is active in lUP ' s ROTC pro- gram. He acheived the highest award of Superior Cadet at Fort Benning ' s Air- borne school his freshman year. His soph- omore year he gathered more honors such as the National Sojourner Award and achieved the cadet ranking of Brigade Command Sergeant Major. He also de- signed the T-shirts for the Advanced Camp Corp, and helped in organizing an Olympic gym for ROTC personnel. n Darien is also involved in other activi- ties. He is a member of the Ski Patrol. He is president of a new group that helps children of divorced parents cope, called the Turning Point. He is an approved vol- unteer for the Big Brothers program. He was first runner-up for Homecoming King in 1984 and 1985. He also helped found Sieady Mick ' s nightclub and is a member of BACCHUS. When he was asked to give his personal motto, Darien gave two responses: " A man that has lived a lifetime has seen many deaths. " and " Sometimes you just got to say, ' What the crap! " ' -Cynthia Carmickle Greeks 205 y- r 1 ' ♦ ■■ ■ •: iX; 335 Seniors or some it took four years, some five, some six; no matter how long it took, the joy (and at times, sorrow) of being a senior was felt by all of these lUP students. Some seniors enjoyed the freedom of scheduling classes at will, spending less than five mintues dur- ing registration. Others had to " fight and claw " for general education courses that they needed for graduation. During the second semester, or the downhill stretch for the class of 1986, many seniors enjoyed the luxury of partying till dawn, " blowing off " morning classes; and for the extra fortunate, trips to warmer climates during lUP ' s Spring Break. The seniors were also the closest to the infamous " real world. " The Oak staff wishes each of them the best for a bright future.

Once it ' s taken hold there is no stopping it. It becomes part of every day existence. What is this terror that strikes 99.99% of all soon-to-be graduates? Senioritis. Senioritis is the result of four or more years of college, too much studying and, in some cases, fear of the " work-a- day " world that awaits its victims. Com- mon symptoms are drowsiness (in most classes and always before an 8:00 class), headaches after a night uptown or before a big test), nausea after taking a big test or before entering the cafete- ria), vomitting (after 15 beers or before you finish the last bite of an extra large pizza with everything that you ate all by yourself.). Some seniors experience symptoms of senioritis as soon as they arrive at lUP in the fall. Others do not experi- ence difficulties until mid-April — BUT by the time finals roll around every se- nior is afflicted with senioritis. Relief can sometimes be found in moderate to excessive partying, road tripping to other locations, vacationing over spring break or sleeping a mini- mum of 12 hours per day. There is only one cure for this mala- dy — graduation. There must be some- thing that triggers the graduate ' s senses once a diploma is in his or her hands. Maybe it ' s the funny smell of the " academic regala " or perhaps it ' s the simple joy of receiving a college degree. -Cynthia Carmickle Above: A senioritis victim Seniors 225 CAROLE KNUDSEN GILBERT KO RLNEE KuCHlS KAREN KOHAN LISA KOMM Glen Arm Hong Kong Huntingdon Johnstown Oakdale loumdlism NuiyiiiC] Criirn: , " ' " " i ' .

One 1986 graduate did much, much more. Just imagine having classes, commut- ing, being a volunteer fireman and working 50-70 hours per week — that is what Mike Sgro has done while com- pleting his degree in criminology at lUP. A native of Kittaning, Sgro has al- ways been familiar with lUP. His family opened Sgro ' s Restaurant, on Philadel- phia Street in 1971. It was here that Mike put in many of his working hours. He also helped at his family ' s real estate business in Kittaning. Sgro usually bartends or works in the dining room of his family ' s restaurant, but he will help in the kitchen if they really need him. His most memorable experience from working at Sgro ' s was on New Year ' s Eve when a group of college students came in dressed as a Christ- mas tree (complete with lights) and packages, and sang songs to everyone there. Sgro was also involved in his local volunteer fire company — Kittaning Hose Co. No. 1. He was elected Presi- dent Fire Chief of the Unit during his junior senior year, making him the youngest Fire Chief in the Company ' s history. He also received the unit ' s " Above and Beyond the Call of Duty Award " in 1982. Sgro ' s plans for the future are to con- tinue working in his family ' s businesses and to " sometime have my business. " " Lots of times, 1 though 1 could never do it (get through school), " Sgro said — but the doubts became past history on May 10, 1986 at graduation. -Cynthia Carmickle Right: Sgro poses by Sgro ' s. 1 Am CHRISTINE PILOTTI Aliquippa Marketing KENNETH PITT Philadelphia Communications RICHARD PLATT Dubois Computer Science KAREN PODLENSKY Lanqhorne Political Science MARY POLLICE Coraopohs Accounting MARINE POPE Warren Music Ed.

The extremes in climate during spring break were almost as diverse as the seniors that travelled. The Penn had advertisements heralding Daytona Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami Beach or Bermuda to the South; and Stowe and Killington to the North. Fort Lauderdale and Daytona Beach are some of the more famous or infa- mous beaches in Florida during Spring Break. According to " America " ' s Spring 1986 issue, Fort Lauderdale is the most crowded beach during Spring Break, and Daytona is runner-up to Mi- ami for the best nightlife. (NOTE: It is rumored that lUP won " College Day " at the Button in Fort Lauderdale. Sources claim lUP came from behind and took the title with a victory in the wet T-shirt contest). Those who headed North found themselves enjoying the slopes, warm fires and hot toddies. These students may not have gotten full body tans but they got some great exercise. Let ' s not forget what the majority of lUP students probably did over Spring Break — went home. It ' s a chance to sleep 12 hours a day, watch television 10 hours a day and eat everything in the house. It may not be as thrilling as skiing down the slopes but it ' s very re- laxing — and cheaper than lounging on the beach in Florida. Whether Spring Break was spent North, South or " home " , it was a won- derful opportunity to get away from lUP. A chance few students would give up! -Cynthia Carmickle Seniors 245 This page: Right: These caps sum up the feelings of many seniors.

The main commencement ceremony took place in Miller Stadium. Seniors dressed in academic regala filled the field; while proud relatives and friends filled the stands on that hot and sunny Saturday morning. The program began with the prologue by the lUP Wind Ensemble, followed by the processional, national anthem, invoca- tion, distinguished faculty awards. Confer- ral of honorary degrees, commencement remarks by the Reverend Monsignor Charles O. Rice, conferring of degrees by Dr. John D. Welty, granting of military commissions, presentation of the senior class gift, benediction, alma mater and the recessional. The seniors then went to their individ- ual departmental ceremonies, which were held throughout the campus, to receive their diplomas. -Cynthia Carmickle Graduation 247 This page: Top: These seniors celebrate with some champagne.

The 1986 Oak, despite all the trials, tribu- lations and traumatic times, is fi- nally put to rest. There are loads of people that I owe " thank yous " to. There are my section editors and their as- sistants: Becky, Dana, Alicia, Linda, Karen, Angle, Barbra, Debbie, Michele and Laurie. You were all so dependable and responsible for your sections it made my life ten times easier; espiecially when my first dead- line called for extra pages to be done and four color pages to be dropped. Also important to the Oak was our photography editor Bill Mu- sante, who usually came through when it counted. It ' s OK Bill, when you get older your mind goes once and a while. Seriously, you kept deliv- ering for the Oak even after you started delivering for Domino ' s. I don ' t know what we ' ll do with- out your eye for terrific color pictures. The biggest change for the Oak was the increase of copy, and behind the literary whip was Lesley Holton. Lesley, I hope this year didn ' t strain you too much. Remember ' we jour- nalists love pressure, that ' s why we let things go for weeks after they ' re due (unless it ' s for the Penn, maybe we should ask them their secret). All kidding aside, the writing in this book has surpassed anything in the previous Oaks and it ' s all thanks to the great people who wrote, literary staff and the editors. MaryAnn, Holly, Debbie, any- one who wrote, thank you! There was, of course my " out of house " help from Davor Pho- to and Josten ' s. At Davor, our photo company, Abe Orlick, Es- ther, Gemma, Jim, Tim, Neil and LeAnn, plus all of those people in the lab who " rush " ordered my photos, thank you, without you, there would have been many blank pages in this book. Larry Intihar, our Josten ' s rep, thanks for all the fresh and cre- ative ideas. I just hope they don ' t show up too much on the final bill. I promise that I ' ll un- derstand the " signature " con- cept of publishing for the rest of my life! Honest, I ' m not as dense as I seem. Back inside of the Oak, the secretarial help, Cheryl, you probably don ' t ever want to type another name as long as you live, all the work came at once but think of all the fun you had in the fall semester. The true " in-house " helper was Dawn, the mad typing roommate of the century. I didn ' t realize accountants fin- gers could move on anything but adding machines. You typed so much so fast, we all appreciated the help. Last but not least come Jim and Ed, the business brains be- hind the Oak. Ed, if you ever get out of lUP, I wish you the very best. I hope you never have to deal with another parent patron as long as you live. Jim, what can I say but THANK YOU! I hope I didn ' t drive you crazy with all my questions and budget-paranoid attitude. Now after all this babble, a final look at lUP, the good times, the work times and the seasons of it all. I hope the 1986 Oak has indeed reached a new image. -Cindy Carmickle Editor-in-cheif TtCYEAieOOK Missing in action . . . Our photography staff of Sue Rinn- kus, Jeff Lloyd and Bill Zoller.

Many people call it " the best time of your life. " It ' s the first taste of freedom for many students. It ' s a time for mak- ing friends — friends that last a lifetime. The " good times " are abundant. Watching the bright homecoming parade. Tailgating in the parking lot. Playing a relaxing game of pool. Having a drink uptown with friends. College isn ' t all good times; there are the pres- sures and boredom of classes. But when this aca- demic overload gets to be too much, the student kno ' ws it can ' t last forever and the weekend will arrive and the " good times " will begin again. -Cynthia Carmickle Anqie Fcuqh! L I i£e at lUP wasn ' t just fun and games, many lUP students worked. Work came in many forms from standard clerk jobs to vol- unteering time working for an organization. There was also the " ultimate " form of work — school work or studying — which every student did during the fall and spring semesters. This academic work kept many from other activi- ties but in the end, this it payed offas students reached their goals for improved QPAs or jobs following graduation. •Cynthia Carmickle Bill Muunh Leh: lUP ' s Chrtslmos tree lights up.

Far bohw: Small cars disappear in snow f there ' s one thing a student who at- tended lUP will never forget, it would he the weather. The weeks of non-stop rain. The snow that covered everything in sight. The early days in April when students hit the " Shafer Beach. " And as the seasons of the year changed at lUP, so did the students as the years passed by. The first year, a scared freshman waving good- bye to his parents and living in a small dorm room with a roommate. The second year, a confi- dent sophomore taking classes in his major and getting to know more people. The third year, a study smart junior with general education be- hind him and thoughts of the real world just a year away. The fourth year, a professional senior making it through the last two semesters and sending out resumes by the dozens. Whether it be the weather or the students, lUP is never static. The university and its people are always changing, al ' ways growing, always reach- ing for a new image. -Cynthia Carmickle Cynthia Carmickle Cynthia Carmickl« The 1986 Oak 280 In Closing ' I ' ll r " ' ■ Hons iRd ' ana L, J 0. . .....sylvania Indiana, 1 a. 15705-1096 Does Not Circulate ' ARCHIVES RHODES R.
