In addition to 32 academic majors, over 60 academic specializations, and 350 classes offered each semester, students have the opportunity to join and become actively involved in over 75 clubs and organizations that exist on campus. Connecting more than 1500 students with over 75 clubs and organizations is no easy job, but it is a fun job. It is a job that happens on the first day of school each vear. In cooperation with Sodexho Dining Services, the Office of Student Programs and Leadership Development plans and implements the annual Activities Fair. The Activities Fair is designed to bring students and organizations together so that they can connect. To bring the two together, Sodexho provides a barbecue meal on the Quad with all our favorite picnic items. The clubs and organizations setup information tables on the Quad and talk about their organization with anyone who has an interest in becoming involved. It is a match made in heaven. A sunny day, great picnic food, old friends catching up with each other, and new friends being introduced. Susan Jewell, Director of Student Programs and Leadership Development says, "Getting students involved in campus life is a key to their success at Lycoming. The Activities Fair is great way to start that process." Lycoming College is a busy place thanks in part to the Activities Fair.

H omecoming is not the best weekend .on campus, it is the best week on campus. Over the years, the Homecoming celebration has grown from 2 days, Friday and Saturday to an entire week. Exciting activities are planned nightly throughout the week leading up to the big weekend festivities. The students get pumped up for Homecoming by taking part in Jell-O Wrestling, Food Eating Contests, Volleyball Tournaments, Powder Puff Football, and the Mr./Ms. Lyco Contest in which men and women dress as the opposite sex and have a beauty pageant. All this is a build up for the main event. Homecoming Weekend is a special time for alumni to enjoy their College together. The weekend starts off with the bonfire on Friday night. Saturday begins with the Homecoming Parade that moves the crowd to Person Field to watch the Warrior Football Team crush Albright, 33-9. The evening is the time to get wild with a party on the Quad for alumi and students and the fraternities and sororities hosting their returning alumni.

It might be that they are interested in learning a language, to investigate another culture, or to have a new adventure. "1 chose Madrid because I am a Spanish major. Stud\'ing abroad was the best thing that I have ever done for myself. It taught me more things about life and myself that I never could have believed," said senior Jessica Curry. However, no matter what the initial purpose was, there is one thing all study abroad participants can agree on. They came back with a larger view of the world and a better idea of their place within it. "I learned so much about a completely different culture, as well as myself. I was rather surprised about the amount of information that I learned about myself," said junior Robin Bixler. .Above: Senior Erin Mumnia makes music with a tribe in the Cameron Highland's rainforest, Malaysia with the Semester at Sea Left: Junior Phil Zimmerman relaxes on top of London's famous lion statue at Trafalger's Square while studying abroad in England. EVE 6 Shares Bill With Our Lady Co-headliners EVE 6 and Our Lady Peace stormed the Lamade Gymnasium at Lycoming College on March 15. The show with opening act VAST rocked on for over three hours into the early morning hours. The headliners made Lycoming College part of their extensive Post-Valentine's Day headline club tour. EVE 6 was promoting its self titled platinum record released in 1998. They scored big hits with "Inside Out," "Leech," and a top 5 hit, "Promise". Our Lady Peace started out in 1993 and won numerous awards. The band had a top ten hit"Starseed" on its first album and its second album released in 1997 went platinum with top hits "Superman's Dead" and "Clumsy". Tlie audience saw a great show but what they didn't see was all the hard work and effort that the CAB Concert Committee put into arranging the event. Eight CAB Concert Chairpersons directed the efforts of 115 student workers to produce the show. Staging and lights were erected, hospitality details were attended to, transportation was arranged, security was needed and tear down and clean up took until the early hours of Friday morning. It was a great event and a great effort by the CAB Concert Committee. Above Right: Students really got into the concert performance of the three bands.

We, the Student Senate of Lycoming College, have left a dent! The Student Senate of Lycoming College is the official student governing body of the College. Student Senate is the final, legitimate, and representative voice of the students that it serves. Student grievances, needs, and desires should be taken to the Student Senate to be effectively communicated with administration. Our philosophy expresses that a student's education at Lycoming College should focus on the total development of the student. Extra-curricular programs, activities, and events are essential to students' intellectual growth and personal development. Just as the classroom experience provides a forum for new thoughts, ideas, and opinions, so does the extra-curricular program through exposure to educational and social programs, student leadership, and volunteer service activities. Students' involvement in the governance of the College as well as the various clubs and organizations is essential to enhancing the quality of student life.

The theme of the year became "students can make a difference." Several tasks the Student Senate has accomplished include: Increased SSLC membership by 15%, provided Homecoming festivities, informed the administration of the strident need for a techi-iology fee, began the plans for a 24-hour computer lab, solicited a 50% increase in Flex Dollars, repaired student desks in the Acadeinic Center, solicited the improvement of the Freshman Parking Lot on 4"' Street, informed the Athletic Department of the poor condition of the equipment, which has since been replaced, provided the Rose Pfaff Scholarship to a qualified student, and the list continues. The bottom line is that Student Senate accomplishes what it sets forth. Involvement is key! Lycoming College's Student Senate is a group of dedicated leaders and motivators from our campus community. The Student Senate should be commended for a successful year.

The class of 2002 sponsored the annual Jell-O wrestling event for Homecoming and it proved once again to be one of the most successful events on campus. "It takes a lot of work to get the Jell-O wrestling event together, but we've been doing it for the last 3 years, and it proves to be a great time, " said Junior Class Secretary Jennifer Gross. Other events the class sponsored were finals study breaks, springtime cookouts, and fund-raisers. Also, the class contributed time and money to several charitable organizations. Last year, the officers started another tradition of going to New York City to see a show or live taping of a television program. This year the class sponsored a trip to see Comedy Central's "The Dailv Show with Jon Stewart." Over forty students went to see it. "The trips our class sponsors to New York Citv are a great time. We do it because it's something different that many students may not ever have a chance to do," said Junior Class President Phil Zimmerman.

The class officers haci several accomplishments such as sponsoring a powderputt football match, winning best float at Homecoming with the "Super Sophomore" theme, and sponsoring an open microphone night.

They raised more than $200 for the United Way, volunteereci for Habitat's 5 K Fun Run, andorganized the El Salvador project, a campus-wide event to raise money for the damaged homes in that area. "It's really great working with our officers this year. I think we accomplished so much especially it being our first year as officers.

The officers decided to concentrate on getting involved with school events and trying to get others involved on campus. They sponsored a volleyball event for Homecoming, donated monev to the United Way and the El Salvador project, and coordinated such large campus-wide events as the Hand- in-Hand project. The Hanci-in-Hand project was a new event that the class sponsored in the spring, in which mentally and physically handicapped people from the area came to have a day of fun and activities. The officers asked several organizations to help cionate money or time to the event anci the project proved to be a great success. 31 Lyco Cheerleading: Reaching New Heights From backflips to basket tosses, the Lycoming Cheerleading squad entertains the Warrior fans in the air more than on ground. Under the coaching of Vikky Smithkors, this year-round organization radiates with school spirit and team unity not only during football season, but basketball as well. For the past few years, the team has sparked such interest in Lyco students, it has been able to fill all of its uniforms, and the co-ed fall squad proved that with an impressive 21 members. The squad arrives on campus in early August for camp and plays a huge part in maintaining blue and gold tradition with participation in Homecoming, pep-rallies, fund- raisers, and parades. In fact, this year cheerleading was approved to receive gym ^ credit for full participation in either the fall or spring seasons! Upon keeping difficult series of extensions and outrageous 2-3 man- high mounts, the team added seven new girls to the squad for basketball season. The squads goal is to maintain their crowd "awing" ability as they keep expanding and growing stronger. This team is taking off and reaching new heights!

They have been involved in many events and service projecis this year. Some of the most important community service events on Lycoming College's campus this year have been sponsored by Lycoming College's branch of Circle K. Examples of these events include the Fall and Spring Semester Blood Drives, Candy Grams for students to send each other, Cltild ID Day, and the Campus Carnival. The Fall and Spring Blood Drives provide a chance for all of the students at Lycoming College to come together to donate their much-needed blood to the American Red Cross. A lot of students came out to support this effort that was organized by Circle K. Child ID Day offered a chance for families to have their children's fingerprints and pictures taken, so as to have more recent identifications of them. Students had the opportunity to buy and send Candy Grains to other students through Circle K. The Candy Grams were sold in the cafeteria during meals, and also from door to door in the residence halls. Projects such as these have shown Circle K's interest in the Lycoming College community as well as the commimity outside the College.

It offers members the opportunity to enjoy challenge and adventure while meeting new people. This year, the club did a lot of serious hiking and orienteering. "After getting lost once, we discovered the tlirill of orienteering. Now we make it a point to get lost on purpose. We go deep into the woods and try to find our way out using a compass and our memory," says President Greg Care. Care reports that while hiking, club members often shout "We're not lost, we're just adventurers!" Other activities for Lyco's wild adventurers this year included wall climbing, paint ball, and the highlight, a Whitewater rafting trip.

College students help to tutor and further the education of the children of Williamsport. Lycoming College students tutor fifth graders at the Pine Street School ever\' Wednesday afternoon. Each tutor is paired with a child, and is committed to coming and helping that child every week with their homework. Once the homework is finished, there is activitv time every week where the tutor and child do an activity. There are different kinds of activities the tutors can do with the children, such as play games or make crafts. The number of tutors involved this year has doubled since last year, and FLOAT is on its way to becoming an official student organization. The students put together a talent show at the end of March, and there are other events such as a dinner held at the church for the tutors and an "all activities day" for the kids. The "all activities day" is a day when the tutors and kids get to do activities the whole tinie instead of working on homework.

R 48 Celebrate Women, End the Violence Women's Forum The Women's Forum is a group on campus that promotes the empowerment of women. The group meets once a week to discuss ideas, thoughts, and experiences that they have about how to improve women's lives in our culture. The recently established gi-oup sponsored a day dedicated to women called V- Day. They handed out homemade cookies and tried to make the campus aware of important issues many women face today. This year the group also took a field trip to Bucknell University to see a play by Eve Ensler called the Vagina Monologues. The wide varieties of monologues are about being a woman and the different issues they have faced. It was designed to help stop the violence against women. It is an effective play put on in various locations around the country. Members of the women's forum plan on getting the Vagina Monologues at Lycoming next '^~ vear. Another development the group IS working on is the idea of . a women's center on campus. The women's forum is a good way to educate yourself as a woman or man on the issues women face today. V-Day is an organized response against violence towards women. V-Day is a vision: We see a world where women live safely and freely. V-Day is a demand: Rape, incest, battery, and genital muti lotion must end now. V-Day is a spirit: We believe women should spend their lives creating and thriving rather than surviving or recovering from the terrible atrocities. V-Day IS a catalyst: By raising money and consciousness, it will unify and strengthen existing anti-violence efforts. Triggering far-reaching awareness, it will lay the groundwork for new educational, protective, and legislative endeavors throughout the world. V-Day IS a process: We will work as long as it takes. We Will not stop until the violence stops. V-Day IS a day. We proclaim Valentine's Day as V-Day, to celebrate women and end the violence. V-Day is a fierce, wild, unstoppable movement and community. Join UsI "Amidst the struggles, women are making advancements in the world, making them an ever- present force. Hopefully, at Lycoming College we can provide both women and men with the understanding that we have the abilitv to make changes happen."

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world: indeed it's the onh' thing that ever has." -Margaret Mead Thoughtful. Committed. A small group. Margaret Mead could be describing Lycoming's Residence Life team, only the world they seek to change is that of the campus community. Led by Director of Residence Life Denise Robinson, Manager of Residence Hall Operations Debbie Weaver, Student Life Coordinators Amy Paciej and Kim Waterman, the team of Resident Advisors (RA's) Community Advisors (CA's), and Student Academic Resources (STARS), labor to create a positive residential experience at Lycoming. This includes offering educational and social opportunities, promoting health and safety, and enforcing college policies, the latter, a thankless but necessary task. The student staff was molded into a team in the late weeks of sunimer, before the semester's start. Over the year, despite being shorthanded, "The student staff was great in accepting new responsibilities and coping with changes," Denise Robinson, Director of Residence Life commented. The team also developed a certain bond with each other. "It was great to see how everyone came together to function as a team, especially since there was such a variety of personalities on staff," remarked senior Adrienne Reichenbach. "Instead of just being co-workers, many of us became close friends." Senior staff members who will be graduating include Luke Klawonn, A.].

I was given the opportunity to get to know so many of my peers that I may never have known otherwise. " -Shauna McQuillen Page Layout and Design by Adam Makos 57 Tpt Lycourier Staff Write On! It was a year of changes for the campus newspaper. The Lycourier got a new advisor, a new editor, and plenty of new ideas. Christine Shau'ver was at the helm as editor, and Janice Ogurcak, lifestyles editor at the Sun Gazette, signed on as the group's advisor. One of the staff's biggest accomplishments was increasing the size of the paper to 12 pages, from its previous eight. "It just looked a lot better and we could cover more news," said junior Phil Zimmerman, the Lycourier' s copy editor. The Lycourier also stepped into the digital age this year and got its first digital camera. This gave the staff the luxury of importing photos directly into the layout program without having to worry about getting film developed. But the year's biggest highlights for the staff revolved around the 2000 presidential election. Shawver and photographer Stephanie Barnharl had the opportunity to attend the Bush/Cheney rally at the Williamsport Regional Airport in October. Afterwards, Shawver was able to interview Cheney. "I really didn't think they would let me in," she said. "But there were only two other people who'd been given permission for an interview, and they said they didn't mind if 1 came along. We each got to ask him two questions." It was an afternoon she'll never forget. "I've done interviews and press conferences and things hke that, but this was Dick Cheney! How many college students can say they've interviewed the vice president?" Another highlight was election night when staff members canvassed the college, polling over 500 students about who they voted for. Even if the paper couldn't report who'd won the election, they were able to say the majority of Lyco students supported Bush. "It was fun, getting all caught up in the excitement of the election, staying up late to see what our headline should say about who won. . .of course that didn't happen," Shawver said.

Lycoming Dance Program Showing Its Steps This year, the Lycoming Dance Program has stepped up its pace and in April, was recently passed through Student Senate as a full-fledged campus organization. The club's purpose is to have fun, get exercise, and meet new people while learning new dance skills. Members are encouraged to attend as many sessions as their schedules permit. Programs range from Tap, Modern Dance, Hip-Hop, Ballet, or Jazz. At the end of the school year, members came together for a final showcase held on the stage in the Chapel. Michelle Clewell and Cynthia Nespola are the founders of Lycoming's newest organization. Michelle says, "My hope for the program is to get and keep people involved." She's doing her job as dance at Lycoming is quickly catching on. Abo\e: Tlie ladies take a bow after performing Top Left: Modern UanLC-gracefully glidmg to the music. on stage at the chapel.

M'62 English At Lycoming Making A Distinction Under the direction of Dr. Darby Lewes and Dr. Emily Jensen, the Lycoming English Society promotes English and literature on campus and in the community. The group includes English, as well as non- English majors. They meet weekly to discuss field trips or events such as their Fireside Christraas, v'isits to Medieval Times, or their latest event — a monthly book club, by which members meet downtown at the Tea Room to discuss the books the members are reading. /\s the members of the society develop their own traditions, they uphold, most importantly, the tradition of enjoying and respecting literature. Sigma Tau Delta, Lycoming's English Honor Society, inducts between 5 and 10 new members each spring. The society- is an international honor society and has chapters at more than 500 colleges and universities throughout the world. Lycoming "s chapter is Omega Sigma. This elite group includes students who have excelled in English at Lycoming. The society dinner is held each April, at which students receive pins and a formal induction ceremony into Sigma Tau Delta. „.v Top: Dr. Emily Jensen,dd\isor, stands with members of the English Soeiet\ m the Academic Center after d meeting.

Phil ate 80 wings in one hour. Habitat for Humanity International, L\'conTing College Chapter, has been hindraising for, working on, and building houses for twelve years. Habi- tat, a non-profit Christian housing ministry, seeks to aid in the mission to eliminate pov- erty housing and homelessness in the com- munity and the world. The main purpose of Habitat is to build and rehabilitate houses in partnership with Habitat affiliates, homeowners, and others. Another goal is to educate the campus and local community about Habitat for Hunianity and affordable housing. Finally, the last goal is fund-raising to support Habitat's causes. In the beginning of the year. Habitat held the Habitat 5K Fun Run for Shelter. During Homecoming week Habitat participated in Jell-O Wrestling and the parade before the game. During the spring semester. Habitat held a fund- raiser, the Wing Eating Contest, for all participating organizations. Thirty Lycoming College students went to Charleston, South Carolina for the Spring Break Collegiate Challenge this year. This trip gave Lycoming students the opportunity to learn more about Habitat, see other parts of the country, and help people in other communities. Habitat is now preparing for construction of the Lycoming College Habitat House. The students involved in the organization have worked hard on fundraising and planning for this house. ^■" ■a^vJj-*»;';^jt| Aho\e: Emily Hautala, Amanda Kramer, and Jess Trexler are dressed up as a hammer and nails for the Homecommg parade.

Marco Hunsberger Advisor 64 Habitat for Humanity spring Break Collegiate Challenge A total of 30 students and adult supervisors represented Lycoming College for the Habitat for Humanity Spring Break Collegiate Challenge. During the week of February 25 to March 3, Habitat enjoyed the warm sunshine, beaches, and historic downtown of Charleston, South Carolina, while working at 4 project sites for the Charleston Habitat affiliate. The sites included one new home, for which students braved shaky ladders, narrow walls, and steep slants to attach siding and shingles. Students also worked on siding a second home, stripping paint from a third, and demolishing the insides of an old electrical supply warehouse. The warehouse was recently acquired by Charleston Habitat to be used for storage, as their central office, and as dormitory space for future Collegiate Challenge participants. Lycoming worked side by side with an Americore team, as well as 10 students from Michigan. Though the area surrounding the sites forced Habitat to secure all belongings and board up windows for protection from nighttime vandalism, the community as a whole showed nothing but a welcoming attitude for us as we worked. Junior Kerri Stauffer said, "I had the chance to meet one of the women receiving a Habitat house. We got to work along side her while she shared some of her experiences with us. She let us know how much she appreciated all the hard work each and every one of us put into the project."

GqInG PEACES Greeks Know The Way Going Greek means that you are Going Places at Lycom- ing College. The four sororities and four frater- nities have a membership of about 25 percent of the campus population, and they provide a great deal of the leadership that occurs on campus. Greeks hold leadership positions in their chapters and in Panhellenic and Interfra- temitv Council. Greeks also hold many leadership po- sitions in other clubs and organizations on campus. From RAs to Concert Chairs, Greeks are involved as lead- ers at Lycoming. Greeks take their involvement to new heights by participat- ing in varsity and intramu- ral athletics. Leadership in the classroom is also im- portant to the Greek life. Thirteen Greek students were inducted into the Gamma Sigma Alpha National Greek Honor Society which recog- nizes students that model exemplary aca- demic ability. Whether they are on the athletic fields, in the classroom or active in clubs and organizations, Greeks are Going Places! ■•"W' 68 Left; Tau Kappa Epsilon brother Dan Miller shows off his pool skills at a rush function in the TKE Lounge.

The Panliellenic Council is the main governing body of all sororities on campus. Representatives from Alpha Rho Omega, Alpha Sigma Tau, Beta Phi Gamma, and Gamma Delta Sigma are all brought together tlirough an organization that promotes unity among Greek women. Panhellenic Council is responsible for such events as risk management programs for Greeks and the campus, and also service projects to the campus as well as the community. Panliellenic CouncU regulates and runs Rush each semester in order to promote new membership and give any interested women on campus the opportunity to see what Greek life is all about. Greek Week consists of events and competitions between the sororities and fraternities on campus. It is one of the most anticipated Greek events of the year, plamied by the Panliellenic Council and the Interfraternity Council. Kara Rigel, Social Chair of Panhellenic Council developed and planned the entire event this year. Council President Megan Dellinger said, "Panhellenic is working on improving relations among the sororities. We have a great group of women on the board this year and are looking forward to Greek Week and improving campus life for Greeks."

Representatives from Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Mu Delta, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and Kappa Delta Rho all come together every Tuesday iiight to discuss the goings-on of Greek life at Lycoming. Director of Student Programs and Leadership Development Susan Jewell oversees the meetings and helps with fundraisers, events, and otlier fraternity life issues. The IFC also gets to sponsor activities for the incoming freshman class. For instance, next year, on the first Wednesday of the school term, the guys will host a graffiti party with markers as an icebreaker for the new students. They believe this has worked in the past and it will enable the freshmen to get more acquainted with their new fellow classmates. Another major issue swirling around the IFC table is Alpha Tau Omega (cTirrently labeled as an interest group), and whether or not to make them an official Greek fraternity. Tbie debate wiU continue on to next year, but it seems that even if they are granted official status, the process wiU take a few years. "1 am most proud of the fact that we are able to involve ourselves in every Iraternity matter. It's really cool to see all the fraternities gather together and become one."

The founders of Alpha Sigma Tau were women who possessed these qualities. On November 4, 1899, eight college women from Michigan State Normal College (now Eastern Michigan University) formed the Alpha Sigma Tau Sorority in Ypsilanti, Michigan. These eight women inspired a love and dedication to the Sorority, a torch that has been passed through the years. For 100 years, Alpha Sigma Tau has been an active presence at universities and colleges across the United States. From its beginning in 1899 to today, the purpose of the Sorority has been "to promote the ethical, cultural, and social development of its members." Locally founded on December 14, 1991, The Gamma Pi chapter of Alpha Sigma Tau is the only national sorority on the Lycoming College campus. This chapter has come to adopt the following motto, "Everything We Acliieved Was Once Just A Dream", which symbolizes the hard work and dedication it takes to be "Simply The Best." Today, 51 sisters have a home in Lycoming College's rich Greek system. Throughout the past year. Alpha Sigma Tau has participated in the Hand-In-Hand Project, Little Siblings Weekend, and the Pine Mountain Settlement School National Philanthropy Project while maintaining highest sorority GPA (3.49), which happened to surpass the "All College" Women's Average.

This group of women came together to focus on each others' individuality as well as to provide service, scholarship, and social to the college and community. They were formed on the basis of individuality and respect. This year Alpha Rho conducted a number of service projects such as. Daffodil Days, Adopt a Highway (an annual project for Alpha Rho), making cards for sick children, and baby-sitting. Besides their formal and spaghetti dinner for their alumni they also had a scholarship competition with Tau Kappa Epsilon. One common saying is, individuallv, unique, together, complete.

This open motto is way of life for the Greek men of Lambda Chi Alpha. This great fraternity began in 1909 in Boston University with Warren A. Cole and since has expanded to over 200 chapters across the U.S. and Canada, including right here at Lycoming. The Iota Beta Zeta is led by Chapter President Kris Wingard, and Vice President Austin Duckett. With the recent addition of a Theta position (assistant to the Vice President, and Chairman of Community Service), Lajnbda Chi has excelled at cleaning up the community. Adopt-a-Highway, Hand- in-Hand, and fundraisers for the Salvation Army and American Rescue Workers are some of the projects they participated in. "People see us as extremely diverse, but the amazing thing is, for as diverse as we are, it's incredible to see how easy we pull together as one," says member Colin Gabler. For Lambda Chi, diversity equals unity.

Tau Kappa Epsilon Fraternity was founded in 1899 and in less than 100 years, it has become one of the largest international fraternities in the country.

Their objective is to promote brotherhood, service, and democracy. Phi Mu Delta is a relatively new organization at Lycoming; they received their charter on April 15, 1999. "Being a young fraternity, we are still tiying to form traditions," says President, Dave Danubio. One tradition is their "Beef and Beer" stand at the Homecoming game. The brothers sell beef sandwiches and root beer as a fundraiser. Phi Mu Delta has really developed over the past year. This year, they received many different awards, such as most improved grades, most improved new member grades, outstanding education program, highest grades of all fraternities on campus, and junior Todd Cole, received a leadership award from the national headquarters. Phi Mu Delta is improving in many ways and they are making themselves known to the campus and community.

Next year, the Arrow will tell the story of the first class admitted to Lycoming under its present four-year degree-granting history. This volume of the Arrow is, therefore, the connecting link between the present and the past represented by time-honored Dickinson Seminary, so justly beloved by thousands who now hail Lycoming as their Alma Mater. None of us should ever forget, or in any way belittle, these earlier years during which the Seminary laid the seeds that brought, from the college to which her graduates went, the early recognition and accreditation in which we all now take justifiable pride. Our present position, where we enjoy the coirf idence of our sister institutions, places a real obligation on us all, students, alumni, and faculty, to keep the flame burning brightly and the torch held high, in order that what ground has been gained many not be lost, and that our future may be worthy of our past. William Hoffman Dean of the College Taken from the 1951 Arrow 85 -«* GqInG PEACES Where do you want to go? Directions, directions, directions-the faculty and staff of Lycoming College love giving directions. "Fill out form A-035 completely and return it to the office." "Before beginning test, read instructions carefully." "Parking is not allowed on College Place." These directions are what you might hear on a regular basis at Lycoming. But if you look a little more closely at the more than 300 faculty and staff that work at Lycoming, you might notice a different type of direction that they give. The faculty and staff of Lycoming take great pride in knowing that ultimately they are providing students with the directions thev need to succeed in the game of life! As instructors, role models, disciplinarians, supervisors. and friends, the faculty and staff at Lycoming teach students how to make good life decisions. Good decision making skills about career directions, personal relation- ships, community involve- ment, and all of life's tough issues are learned through interaction with others. The faculty and staff at Lvcoming love to give direction which helps our students go places! Page 86: Our nationally known creative writing team, G.W.

Women's basketball and softball coach Chris Ditzler volunteered to serve as interim coach with the help of assistants Wendy Warfield and Nikki Slapikas. The trio guided the Lady Warriors to a winning season of 13-11 and a trip to the Freedom Coiiference playoffs. The team relied heavily on the senior leadership of Maren Attanasio, of King of Prussia, Pa., and Jackie Moore, of Altoona, Pa. Attanasio led the team with 743 assists and 42 aces during the season. Moore led the team in digs with 392 in 87 games and was second in kills with 232. Lycoming also benefited from the play of freshman Layne Haverstock, of Hesston, Pa. Haverstock, playing in her first collegiate season, led the team with 315 kills, while adding 31 aces and 306 digs. Both Moore and Haverstock were recognized by the conference for their efforts; Moore by being named a first- team all-star and Haverstock by being named the rookie of the year.

With only four female runners and one male runner, neither squad was able to compete in the team competitions of the invitationals they attended, but as indiviciuals, the athletes ran hard week- in and week-out. Scott Condello, of North Wales, Pa., ran extremely well all season despite having to train almost entirely by himself. Condello was a top- ten finisher in four of the team's seyen meets in 2000, including a 10th place finish at the MAC championships to end the season. His best time was 27:35. Sarah Kapinus, of Centre Hall, Pa., was the leading runner for the women's team. Kapinus ran a season-best time of 21;28 on the women's 3000-meter course.

The Warriors also named 14 players to the Freedom Conference all-star teams. Defensively, the conference honored six Lycoming players with first-team selections- Including the entire secondary of Sean Graf (Philadelphia, Pa.), John Scanlan (Sharon Hill, Pa.) and Jeff Tinney (Ridley Park, Pa.) - and another two players with second team selections.

Highlighting the championship meet were the record-breaking performances turned in by Lycoming's swininiers. Over the course of the three-day event, three Lvconiing College records fell. Sophomore Andrea Rapach led the effort with two individual marks. Rapach set new standards in the 50-vard freestyle (:24.92) and the 100-yard freestyle (:55.38).

Top: Thomas Wesner dashes dou n the court. Above: Jason Black looks for a clear shot. Men's Basketball Under the leadership of first-year head coach Terry Conrad, the Warriors opened the season with three consecutive wins, scoring 87 points or more in each contest. But as the team entered a 10 game stretch that featured eight road games, the sweet start turned sour. Lycoming won just two of those 10 games, falhng a season-high three games below 500. However, Lycoming reeled off five consecutive wins, including four over conference opponents. A victory at the buzzer at Drew and a double-overtime triumph at King's seemed to spark the Warriors. Thev went on to win eight of the finain games and finish third in MAC Freedom Conference for the regular season. The team was led by junior Chris Napier and sophomore Thomas Wesner. Napier, in his third year on the team, led the Warriors in scoring, averaging 17.8 points per game. He was also second on the team in rebounds, pulling do wn 6.6 per game. Wesner, in his first season with Lycoming, had an immediate impact, scoring 17.1 points per game and lead ing the team in three-point field goals with 76. Senior David Ganisin was another key component to the Warriors' success, leading the team in rebounding with 6.7 rebounds a game and averaging 12.9 points per game. Brian Lindsay, Jason Black, and Rob Johnson also played important roles in big games for Lycoming. Napier and Lindsav both provided extra highlights to the season by entering the 1,000-point club for their collegiate careers. Lindsay broke the 1 ,000-point mark on Jan. 17 at Drew University. Napier has scored all 1 ,01 7 of his points at Lycoming. He surpassed 1,000 points in this year's final regular season gameatFDU-Madison. 121 Women's Basketball E\ery sports fan knows that while success in athletics is dependent on talent, hard work and dedication; there is also an element of luck. Some teams, regardless of talent level or work ethic, just seem to catch all the breaks - or none of them. Lycoming's Women's Basketball Team might sum up their season as the latter. The team entered the season with high expectations due to a core group of returning veterans and an exciting group of newcomers. Things didn't go as planned, howe\'er, as the Ladv Warriors lost seven games by five points or less, including three overtime games, en route toal2-12season. While the close games made for a frustrating season, L\'coming never quit working. The relentless attitude began to show dividends towards the end of the year as the Lady Warriors won five of their last seven games. The higWight of the season came on the last day of January, when Lycoming defeated the nationall\' ranked Universitv of Scranton, 64-54. Not onl\' was the win over a nationall}- ranked team and the preseason favorite to win the MAC Freedom Conference, but italso denied Scranton's head coach the 500''' win of his career. Sophomore Lyndy LeVan was the Lad\ Warriors most consistent pla\'er throughout the season. LeVan was the leading scorer in the conference, posting 18.8 points per game. She also averaged 7.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per outing. LeVan is on pace to become Lycoming's all-time leading scorer with 862 career points in just two seasons. Seniors Jena Boos and Adriemie Wvdra also played significant roles as leaders for the Lady Warriors. Boos averaged 7.9 points and 6.0 rebounds per game. She ends her career at Lycoming ranked 6"' on the College's all-time rebounding list with 546 boards. Wydra ran the point for Lycoming and was a tenacious defender throughout her career. This past season, she averaged 3.4 assists and L9 steals per game to lead the team in both categories. W\'dra's 293 career assists rank third all-time at Lycoming.

Lycoming had all 10 wrestlers place in the top four of their respective weight classes, while fi\'e Warriors were crowned individual champions. The conference championship was the culmination of a record breaking regular season. Lycoming compiled a dual- meet record of 23-4-1 to set a new mark for wins in a season. The record surpasses the 22 victories earned during the team's undefeated season of 1996-97. The Warriors also continued to build their reputation as one of the top wrestling programs in the country . After opening the season ranked 10"' in the nation by the Adidns/B m te Coaches ' Poll, L\'Coming steadilv moved up the poll, finishing the regular season ranked fifth. Dual-match victories over nationally rai"iked opponents, such as Delaware Valley, Ithaca, and Loras, and a second-place finish at the Budd Whitehill National Duals, precipitated the Warriors move up the polls. Leading the way for the Warriors this season were All- Americans Ro\'ce E\'er and And\' Lausier. Last season, Eyer placed fourth at the national championships at 149 pounds and Lausier placed eighth at 197 pounds. Eyer moved up to 157 pounds, but never missed a beat, compiling a regular-season record of 41-4, and pinning 20 of his opponents. His performance throughout the season earned him the number-two ranking in the nation at his weight. Lausier, ranked sixth in the nation at 197 pounds, put together a record of 33-5 during the regular season. Both Eyer and Lausier also recorded the 100* win of their careers in 2001. Thev are the fourth and fifth wrestlers to reach that milestone during Coach Crebs' tenure at Lycoming. The highlight of the season came at the NCAA Division 111 National Championships, where Eyer became the eighth wrestler in Lycoming's history to win an individual nationaltitle. In addition to Eyer, Andy Lausier, Jolui Cogan, and Andy Hull won MAC championships and advanced to the national championships. During the tournament, held in Waterloo, Iowa, the Warriors compiled 23 points to place 15* in the 67- team field. Top: The official claims Sophomore Nate Niman the winner of the match.

Angela Casselberrv, Cara DeMotte, Lauren Derrick, and Melissa Wert also competed at the championships. Scott Condello was the leadirig ruiiner on the men's team, placing in each of Lycoming's regular-season meets.

The highlight of the season was a 309- 312 victor}' over Wilkes University on Lycoming's home course. The four-man, 18-hoIe round of 309 was the lowest score by a Warrior golf team in at least five years. At the 54-hole MAC Championship held at Shawnee on the Delaware, sophomore Mike Passilla posted a team-best round of 250. He finished 17th overall in the field of 67 golfers.

Men's Lacrosse The season was a record-breaking campaign for the men's lacrosse team as head coach Gene Peluso continues to build a winning tradition for the fifth-year program. The Warriors went 12-4, setting a new record for victories in a single-season, winning their first ever Middle Atlantic Conference regular- season championship and recording their third consecutive winning season. A conference record of 7-1 and a six-game winning streak, late in the year, highlighted the season. The regular season MAC title gave Lycoming home-field advantage throughout the conference tournament and eventually the opportunity to host the championship game. The Warriors defeated FDU-Madison, 16-8, in the semifinals to advance to the championship game for the second time in three seasons. Unfortunately, Lycoming fell to an explosive Messiah team, 10-18, in the title game to claim runner- up honors for the third consecutive year (the MAC did not have playoffs in 2000). The Warriors were led by a strong senior class featuring All-American Mark Barnes, and conference all-stars Michael Bonnes, Todd Riescher, and Jared Jankowski. Barnes dominated the midfield for Lycoming picking up 162 groundballs while scoring eight goals and assisting on 16 others. Bonnes was the Warriors' leading goal scorer, finding the back of the net 56 times during the season. He is also Lycoming's all-time leading goal scorer with 168 career goals. Riescher was an imposing figure on the Warriors' defense, typically guarding the opponent's top attacker. He also ranked third on the team with 61 groundballs. Jankowski started every game in goal for the team, completing the year with a goals-against-average of 10.04 and a save-percentageof 62.0. Despite the loss of nine seniors, the future of Lycoming lacrosse continues to look bright. Leading point-scorer and MAC Rookie of the year Sang Duong will return for his sophomore season following a 49-goal, 44-assist performance last season. He will be joined on the attack by Buddy Temple, who scored 27 goals as a junior and was named an MAC first-team all-star, and Dave Dormond, who posted 20 goals as a freshman to earn second-team all-star honors. g;^■V^^ '^ Above: Senior Jared Jankowski guards the goalie for Lycoming.

The Warriors finished their first season under the direction of Katherine Roberts with a record of 11-5, setting a new high for wins in a single-season. Brenda MacPhail and Lauren Evangelist led Lycoming offensively. MacPhail scored 45 goals and tallied 17 assists to lead the team in both categories. Lycoming's all-time leading scorer completed her collegiate career with 170 goals and 64 assists, and was named an MAC first-team all-star for the fourth consecutive season. Evangelist added 30 goals and eight assists during her freshman season while leading the team in groundballs with 79 and caused turnovers with 46. Her performance in the midfield earned her second-team all-star status. Seniors Hillarv Barrett, Lisa Klein, Jessica Miller, Darlene Moyer and Heather Wilt also played key roles in the Warriors' success. Barrett led the team with 42 draw controls while chipping in 24 goals and six assists. Klein was Lycoming's top defender, earning MAC second-team all-star honors. Miller was the Warriors' goalkeeper, stopping 56.6% of opponents' shots-on-goal and recording an impressive 7.78 goals-against- average. Moyer led the team from the midfield, coordinating both the offense and defense. She tallied nine goals and eight assists while picking up 27 groundballs and causing eight turnovers. Wilt was Lycoming's most explosive attacker, using her speed and quickness to post 20 goals and eight assists. Above: Junior Colleen Kenyon runs down field to assist her teammates.

Inexperience at the plate and in the field resulted in seven losses by just one run as the Warriors went 8-14 for the season. However, with their strong pitching staff and a season of experience for the younger plavers Lvcoming should quickly return to a level of prominence within the conference. Anchoring the team last season were Kristie Jean and Amelia Demcher. The team's top pitchers, the pair accounted for seven of the Warriors' eight victories. Jean went 4-4 on the season with an earned-run-average of 1.89. In 59 innings pitched, she allowed 16 earned runs while striking out 26 batters. Jean was also one of Lycoming's top hitters, batting .296 with six runs- batted-in and one homerun. Her performance on the mound and in the batters box garnered Rookie of the Year honors from the Freedom Conference. Demcher earned second-team all-star honors for her work in the center of the diamond, going 3-5 with an ERA of just 1.58. She struck out 41 batters in 53 innings of work, allowing 12 earned runs. Of fensivelv for the Warriors, freshman Laurie Rooney led the team with a batting average of .316. Sophomore Jessica Feerrar was the most productive hitter, driving in 10 runs and connecting for two homeruns. Above right: Freshman pitcher Kristie Jean prepares to pitch.

The Class of 2001 has reached the final destination Lycoming College has to offer: graduating and becoming alumni. Tlirough four years, the seniors have learned about themselves and about each other. They have developed a highly honed knowledge of their subject area and they have also learned to handle the duties of the "real world." Some seniors will say goodbye and travel thousands of miles away, while some will live only a few miles away. Regardless of where life's journey takes them, the seniors acquired the tools to survive the journey at Lycoming College. While graduation from Lycoming is a final destination, it is also merely the beginning of a long and satisfying journey. Their paths may be varieci, but one thing unites the mem- bers of the Class of 2001: thev have just begun going places.

The officers were helped by their advisor Sue McCormick. Their purpose for this year was to represent their class and make sure the wishes of the students were met. Some of the events they have done this year were a 50/ 50 raffle to benefit the United Way and a community service clothes drive to help people with little. Tlie senior class was very excited to win the School Spirit Award during the Home- coming Parade. Every year the seniors leave something behind or do sometliing for the future classes.

And it ' s all mine. Running a business appealed to me. But let's face it, there's never a venture capitalist around when you need one. So I was open to Enterprise. Here they train me to run a profit center, manage people and handle myself in business settings. It's like my own startup, backed by a $5 billion company. Enterprise isn't funny uniforms. It's dressing profes- sionally, conducting sales calls, planning logistics. Easy? No. But people who succeed here aren't afraid to prove themselves, or have fun together. And now that I have the potential to outearn most MBAs, I look forward to doing both.

The experiences and the travels shape our outlook upon life. As we lake our first steps, our journey of life hegins. In our fast pace world, few of us actually reflect on past experiences. If we would only seize the moment and realize our past accomplishments, we would marvel at our own achievements in dishehef. Lyconiing College leaves us with many memories and close friends. As we started college, we set goals that we hoped to an omphsh at the end of four years. While working towards ouj academic aspirations, we experiencedmore than just an academic education. At Lycoming, we went places. As we participated in sports, campus cluhs, and volunteer organizations, friendships and memories grew. Professors became more then mentors, RA's became >^ friends, and study groups became a circle of acquaintances. As we look back, the past four years have fostered our spirit and character making us who we are. Before moving on, take a moment to reflect on your first day at Lycoming. Did you over think things would turn out this great? As the years passed at Lycoming, we continued to grow and learn. All of our experiences, education, and friendships bring life to a full circle preparing us for our next destination. As graduates of Lycoming, we continue to go places. My advice is to take your experiences, make wise decisions, and foDow your dreams. It is our time to go into the world and make our place. .192 9 ARROW TWO THOUSAND ONE The 320 copies of the 2001 Arrow Yearbook were printed and sold for a price of $45.00 each.
