SAINT JOSEPH'S COLLEGE 

DIVISION OF GENERAL 
STUDIES 

BROOKLYN, NEW YORK 



EXPRESSIONS OF APPRECIATION 

I remember the first day I stepped into the General Studies office at St. Joseph's 
College. The advisor that night was Professor Bob Dunn. He explained the Saint 
Joseph's curriculum to me and a co-worker, who is graduating from Saint Joseph's 
in 1997. It turned out that the curriculum I pursued allowed me to develop strong 
academic skills, while maintaining my career and taking care of my family. Indeed, 
I never felt out of place at St. Joseph's, and found that many of my classmates were 
hard working family people like myself. 

I also found the professors to be very accessible. This was very important to me. 
Although I very rarely found it necessary to contact a professor off campus, I could 
always reach them if I had a question. Most of them were also willing to provide 
advisement about the work world and were happy to share their own career expe- 
riences. 

For me, this degree was not easy to obtain, but with the help of many I was able 
to succeed. I would like to first and foremost give thanks to GOD, for he is my 
strength. I would also like to thank my mother Ruby White, my husband, Luiz 
Vazquez, my sons Luis and Terell, SaintJoseph'sMargaretAuglin, and all of my pro- 
fessors at the college. In particular, I must give special thanks to Roger Archibald, 
Arthur Dolan, Bob Dunn, Yvonne Greatheart, Gloria Gasper, and Thomas Napoli- 
tano. With the help, encouragement, patience, and expert knowledge of all those I 
have cited, I can proudly say: I am a Saint Joseph's College Graduate, class of 
1997. 

-Terry A. Vazquez 
The class of 1997 



In April of 1994, I was forced to return to college to maintain my promotion as a 
NYPD sergeant. At the outset, I enrolled with the understanding that I would complete 
the minimum number of credits to satisfy my job requirement. 

Subsequently, I passed the lieutenant's exam which required me to obtain 96 cred- 
its. When I attained the 96 credits my counselor Angela Diaz encouraged me to con- 
tinue and complete my degree, even after I told her I was dropping out. 

She is an excellent counselor because she not only convinced me to continue my 
studies but to attend full time. Her expertise at accentuating the positive aspects of 
college education and discussions about her graduate studies sparked my interest 
in earning an undergraduate degree. I am now a graduate, with a Bachelor's Degree 
in Management of Human Resources. Due to her coaching, I am contemplating 
enrollment in a graduate program.

CHALLENGES 

By MicheleThornhill 

The class of 1997 

"'You can never be afraid of a challenge'\ These words are a motto I try 
to live by. One day while passing Saint Joseph 's College, I thought about 
enrolling. The thing that stopped me was the fear of returning to school 
after a long absence from the education process. I decided that day I would 
conquer my fears. The next thing I knew, I went inside and filled out an 
application. My first few semesters were spent obtaining a firm academ- 
ic foundation. I then chose community health as my focus of study. 

As I looked back there^s a multitude of memories. Some were good and 
some were not so good. Throughout these times I had the good fortune to 
have a loving family for support. My most troubling times came with 
doing term papers and public speaking. I found it so difficult to express 
my ideas on paper and the thought of getting up in front of an audience 
was the most frightening. lam proud to say today, I have overcome these 
obstacles. 

In closing Fd like to leave my colleagues with one piece of wisdom: I 
enrolled here with no specific goals in mind except to get a piece of paper. 
As a result of attending Saint Joseph^s College I now look forward to a 
challenging career in community health. My major has given me a tremen- 
dous boost in my present occupation as a New York Police Officer. It has 
enabled me not only to serve the department better but the community at 
large. A college education is something one must value because it's some- 
thing which you can use throughout your entire life. It is for this reason I 
salute Saint Joseph s College.

REMINISCENCES 

By Frances Scicutella 

The class of 1997 

As I sat in my December 14th class, which was with Professor Clarence 
Stanley, producer of the "MoGreen" philosophy. Professor Beni entered 
and asked for volunteers to write an article for the 1 997 Yearbook. I recalled 
not wanting to raise my hand as I sat in school for the first time in twenty 
years for fear of giving the wrong answer. However, that Saturday, I raised 
my hand automatically to Professor Beni's question. Well, I see that after 2 
1/2 years at St. Joseph's, one of the many things I learned is to put your 
hand up to answer questions whether my answer is right or wrong. I real- 
ized that it is also necessary to exercise a great deal of patience when it 
comes to lines at the bookstore and lines waiting for food at the cafeteria. 
I've also had a number of teachers and therefore, many experiences to 
reminisce about. 

Many thanks go to all my teachers throughout these 2 1/2 years, includ- 
ing extension site teachers. Professor Gaffney first got my attention outside 
the cafeteria of Mary Immaculate Hospital where he was recruiting stu- 
dents. He was obviously very persuasive as I now sit writing this article 
about my experiences at St. Joseph's College. I again had the pleasure of 
meeting Professor Gaffney on the teacher/student level for Critical Think- 
ing and PE.L.A. He helped me retrain mythought processes and was most 
patient as he read and reread my PE.L.A. papers. Modules and logs of my 
own thoughts and feelings brought out memories of Professor Jorge 
Fuentes who reinforced my counseling principles and techniques. This 
reinforcement became very useful in my current job as Personnel Coordi- 
nator and as back up person when the Employment Manager is away from 
job site. I thank Professor Linda Fonte, who through Adults in Transition, 
once again put me in touch with my principles, ideas, feelings, and beliefs. 



^ 



REMINISCENCES (CONTINUED) 

In my major course of study at St. Joseph's, I have had many teachers. I 
have met many new people and made many friends, both teachers and stu- 
dents. Thanks to Doris Richardson for fully explaining OSHA rules, regula- 
tions, and fines to me and to Professors Polito, Janniere, Mohammed, 
Jaffe, and Freedman, for ethics, management theories, statistics, human 
resources law, and computer enhancements, respectively. Professor 
Nicholas has a great deal of patience because he probably read and reread 
my research paper one hundred times or so it seemed. He was always there 
with a smile at 8:15 on a Saturday morning even though most of the stu- 
dents were definitely not smiling. Subjects like Marketing and Human 
Resource Management were made interesting by applying real life situa- 
tions to the text book words through Professor "MoGreen" Stanley. Learn- 
ing marketing principles and handling people at the job became more obvi- 
ous and useful through these courses. 

Last, but definitely not least, my special thanks is for the knowledge and 
skills and reinforcement of already possessed knowledge and skills that I 
learned and reinforced through the knowledge, patience, and assistance 
of Professor Dunn. Attending Professor Dunn's classes in Organizational 
Behavior and Training and Staff Development gave me a great learning 
experience which has been very useful to me on my job and in my person- 
al life. I know that I am much more confident and sure of myself and my job 
due to the instructions, lectures, experiences, and teachings of Professor 
Dunn. 

In closing, I realize that I had so much to write about. Thanking not only 
the teachers, but some many friends, Joanna, Marianna, Tracey, Steve, 
Neil, Vincent, Dennis, Timmy, and so many more, who are very dear to me 
and who have added so much to my life and enhanced my personal hori- 
zons.

The class of 1997 

The years have been great 

The pleasure was less for my mate 

But I struggled to achieve 

This diploma I now receive 

I thank my family, teachers and friends, for being there when I needed them. Spe- 
cial thanks to HAYDEN-my husband and my three loving boys who understood what 
I wanted to achieve. Thanks also to Professors Robinson, Gasper, Davis, and Schac- 
ther, who really went the extra mile to assist me. Thanks to St. Joseph's for the struc- 
ture of the programs and the latitude provided by the flexible schedule, classes.

A REWARDING EXPERIENCE 
By Aideen Duigan 
The class of 1997 

My last three years at St. Joseph's have been quite an experience. As 
a fulltime registered nurse, mother, wife, and student, I wore many hats 
throughout my education towards my degree. 

This achievement would never have been possible without the dedi- 
cation and tutorial assistance of the many professors I encountered 
during that time. 

They were extremely forthcoming with sound information and advice. 
I felt they were always only a telephone call away if I had any problems 
with my assignments or personal life affecting my studies. 

The program and college are very responsive to the needs of the full- 
time worker and student. While professors appreciated that we were 
juggling many different responsibilities, they still had very high expec- 
tations of us as students. This resulted in maintaining a very high edu- 
cational standard. 

Many times the road was difficult and I often thought of giving up, but 
the strong communal support of my peers and professors kept me 
fighting for what I knew could be mine. Now as a St. Joseph's graduate 
I will face the world ... 
Thank You St. Joseph's

MORE EXPRESSIONS OF APPRECIATION 

It has been a privilege to be associated with the faculty of St. Joseph's College 
which provided me with the opportunity to expand nny studies and thereby to fur- 
ther my career. I would especially like to express my appreciation to both Dr. 
Andrea Reynolds without whose continuous support and guidance I would have 
never been able to achieve my goals and also to my family and friends who helped 
me realize my potential and opened the path for me to follow my dreams. 

-Amelia Perez 

The class of 1997 



St. Joseph's dedication to teaching combined with flexibility of scheduling has 
allowed me to pursue and realize my goal of satisfying my BS requirement in 
Human Resources. 

Achievement of this goal has been a life long dream of mine, and many thanks 
and a few tears of joy must be extended to the professors, and support staff of 
the college and to my classmates and family. Success is a journey, not a desti- 
nation, and my journey has been made a happy and worthwhile experience. 
-Anne Marie Buchler 
The class of 1997 



I would like to thank the administration and staff of Saint Joseph's College for 
enabling me to earn my baccalaureate degree in Health Administration. The avail- 
ability of Saturday classes made it really possible to reach this goal. I will cherish 
the wonderful experiences I have had here for the rest of my life.

KEEPING IN TOUCH 

By Comfort Boakye 

The class of 1997 

In this age of social and political problems, members of extended 
families are spread all over the world. However, modern computer 
technology makes it possible for such family members to be as elec- 
tronically close as they were geographically close before they each 
moved to different parts of the world. This story is told of a neighbor 
of mine who originally is from Togo in West Africa. After some mem- 
bers of his extended family moved away, they used to write chain let- 
ters from his elder brother in Paris, France to him herein New York; to 
his younger sister in London, England and finally to their parents in 
Lome, Togo. 

Now he tells me all of them are on the internet, and they send E-Mail 
via the net to family members instead of letters. It is easy to send E- 
Mail to all the family members just by the click of the mouse. This can 
be done in a matter of seconds. Recently, when his sister in London 
had a baby, she posted the picture of the baby to a private web page 
and in an E-Mail to family members gave the address of the web 
page, so that family members could view the picture of her new born 
baby.

Dear Graduates: 

This season of graduation provides an opportunity for us to join together as an academic com- 
munity to celebrate the attainment of your baccalaureate, a success of significant proportions. 
The occasion of commencement is a ceremonial acknowledgement that you are setting forth from 
St. Joseph's with your capabilities and potential greatly enhanced. While what will come next for 
you remains to be seen, the goals you now set for yourself will largely determine the outcome. Put 
another way — and borrowing from Thoreau — if you advance confidently in the direction of your 
dreams, and endeavor to live the life which you have imagined, you will meet with unimagined 
success. 

Let us also recognize that what we accomplish we do so with the encouragement and support 
of others. I am sure you will have no difficulty enumerating the faculty, staff, friends, and loved 
ones without whom this milestone would not have been achieved. 

Once again, I want to extend appreciation to Daniel Beni and S. Carole Lessard for all the work 
they have done to make this year's Achievements such a fitting remembrance of your time at the 
College. They join with me in offering congratulations to the Class of 1997. 

Congratulations,

Dear Graduates: 

Congratulations on the achievement of one of life's more important goals: the attainment of your bacca- 
laureate degree. This achievement - a significant accomplishment in itself - is especially meaningful, since 
it was earned by so many of you while maintaining and often advancing in full-time professional careers 
and meeting the many demands of family life; you brought great energy, intellect and sense of purpose to 
your studies. In the process you have grown and developed in so many ways. 

This year, I would like to thank graduates Comfort Boakye, Ann Marie Buchler, Susan Cherian, Faye 
David, Aideen Duigan, John Doherty, Esther Jones, Amelia Perez, Frances Scicutella, Michele Thornhill, 
and Terry Vazquez, for the insightful writings you contributed to ACHIEVEMENTS '97. Your words docu- 
ment the special struggles and unique rewards of the adult learner. This edition of ACHIEVEMENTS was 
also enlivened by the inclusion of timely and jocular articles on computer applications by Felix Epke, Dave 
Perry, and Kathleen Seager, students in Professor Debra Freedman's, Com-110 class. 

Finally, I would like to thank S. Carole Lessard, Sadie McMillan, Yvonne Griffin, and Susie James for their 
ongoing administrative support. 

In closing, I extend the best of wishes to the graduates of 1997. May your achievement be bright and 
bold, and your memories of your college days with us remain strong for years.

DearAbby. 

I ha ve a very serious problem. I confess I ha ve become a computer 
solitaire junkie. I play every free moment during the work day and 
even at home. 

Fm on the verge of losing my job and my marriage is failing. Fm a 
woman obsessed and I know it. I love to watch the cards bounce 
across the screen if I win. I also change the deck between sets. I just 
don Y know how to stop. I really don f even want to stop, but my life 
is folding like a house of cards. 

Fve even played so often that Fm scheduled for carpal tunnel 
surgery next week to repair the damage in mv right wrist. 

HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. I taught myself how to control the mouse lefty help!!!! 

Dear Queen of Diamonds, 

Seek professional help at once youWe really lost it. The quick- 
est solution in the meantime (that is until you get that much needed 
appointment) is to unplug the computer. 
Best of luck — Abby

INVENTOR LABS 

This article was written by Felix Expe, a student in Preceptor Debra 
Freedman 's Com-1 1 class. 

Getting people to be interested in science and technology is not an 
easy feat these days. After all. such concepts as combustion and units 
of measure can't explain or compete with the latest episode of Bart 
Simpson. Home Improvement, or other interesting television shows. 

Just as driving a car doesn't give you the expertise of an auto 
mechanic, using a computer doesn 't necessarily teach us about science 
and technology. 

However, there is a CD-ROM which attempts to teach us something 
about in vestigation and in vention in the world around us. And for the 
most part, it succeeded. 

It would have been nice to meet inventors THOMAS EDISON, 
ALEXANDER GRAHAM BELL, and JAMES WATT but with this 
CD-ROM. you can sort of 

Inventor labs not only make that happen, but also it lets you play 
around in the in ventor's office. Structured as a visit to each man s lab. 
the disc lets you learn more about the inventors of the light bulb, the 
incandescent lamp and the steam engine. 

At Edison 's workshop for example, you play around with different 
light bulb filaments to find the substance that will last longer before 
burning out. In BelTs lab. you experiment with different parts of the 
phone to perfect a working model. 

Built in photo-realistic environments, the CD-ROM feature brief 
appearances from live actors playing the different inventors. 

With the way things are going, it is highly unpredictable what will 
become of computer technology in the very near future. And I hope 
and pray that I will live to see how far these scientists can go. 



COMPUTERS- VA NECESSITY- 

This article was written by Dave Perry a student in Preceptor Debra Freedman's Com-1 10 class. 



Over the past twenty years the 
connputer has become extremely 
popular, just about every thing we do 
involves some type of computer. For 
example, we go to the supermarket, 
what do they use, computers. We go to 
the cash machine, what do we use, 
computers. Every day we go to work, 
what do most of us use, computers, and 
I am sure we can think of many other 
ways computers have become a 
necessity in our daily lives. Further 
evidence to this fact is the increase in 
enrollment in computer classes. More 
and more people are realizing that in 
order to effectively keep pace with the 
increase in technology you must have 
some understanding of how to use 
computers. 

Unfortunately, although we are 
becoming theoretically proficient with 
computers, the practical, (hands-on) 
knowledge is lacking. I believe this is 
attributed to the fact that although 
computer classes are increasing, and 



more people know what megabyte and 
kilobyte means, and the difference 
between the hard drive and the disk drive, 
we are still at a major disadvantage when 
it comes to actually using the computer. 
We are still afraid to just turn on the 
computer and just play with it, "trial and 
error", we have to realize that using 
computers in the classroom is not 
enough. It's up to each and everyone of 
us to find the time and the resources to 
invest in increasing our computer 
proficiency. There is a saying. "IF YOU 
DON'T USE IT YOU LOSE IT ". As we 
approach the 21st century there is no 
doubt that if you are not computer literate 
you will definitely be left behind. 
Remember, no matter how many classes 
you take, no matter how much computer 
jargon you know, the only way to become 
proficient with a computer is through 
TRIAL AND ERROR. Come to think of it, 
isn't that how we learned about everything 
else in life.

S. George Aquin O'Connor 



44 



S. George Aquin O'Connor's tenure as President of St. Joseph's College, begun in 1969, 
will formally come to an end on June 30/ 1997. The College community received her 
October 28th announcement with feelings of both sadness and deep appreciation for her 
years of dedicated leadership. 

The College that S. George addressed at her inauguration is not the institution that she 
is leaving behind. In 1969, St. Joseph's College was a college for women only, with one 
campus, one division, and an enrollment of 570. Marking its 80th anniversary, today's 
institution now includes men; boasts both a main campus in Brooklyn and a branch campus 
in Patchogue, L.I.; offers a Division of General Studies in addition to the traditional Arts and 
Sciences; and has a combined enrollment of close to 4,000. Because of S. George's 
astuteness in identifying significant trends, the College has experienced extraordinary 
growth without sacrificing academic integrity or its strong student-centered tradition. With 
her deft guidance, the College now, as much as before, reflects it's motto. Esse non videri 
- "To be and not to seem."
