1 dinner with 

tne roses 

Dr.and Mrs. Rose await the arrival of the Student Government Association, who were the 
evening's guests.This was the fifth dinner the Roses hosted in 1 days. 
UPhoto by Morgan Riehl 





Arriving one by one, students progressed in awe 
down the walkway toward Oakview, the home of President 
and Mrs. Rose. The door opened and the smiling couple 
warmly welcomed guests to their home. Students casted quick 
glances at one another, hardly believing where they were. As 
they walked through the door, someone took their coats and 
they were ushered into the house. They could not help but 
feel rather special, since dining at the home or the university's 
president was not something that most college students had 
the chance to do. 

President Linwood Rose made it a priority to get to 
know the students at the university, hosting small, intimate 
dinners at his home. The Roses invited organizations, 
professors, hall directors, Orientation Program Assistants, the 
Parents' Council, and others to dine at Oakview. The dinners 
provided an opportunity for the President to really get to 
know students, and to find out their opinions of the university. 

One or the first intimate dinners of the year, held in 

November, brought together a group of eight freshmen and 

transfer students. At first, they thought it was a joke. "Why 

on earth would Dr. Rose want to have a dinner with me?" 

one guest asked herself. The students, nervous but excited all 

the same, first walked into the "Game Room" for hors 

d'oeuvres, cider and mingling. Their nervousness washed away 

as Dr. and Mrs. Rose engaged them in conversation. After 

general small talk about majors and hometowns, conversation 

turned to the popular televisions show. The Bachelor, and

how the Bachelor was related to Mrs. Rose, then to the 

time the Roses met Prince Charles. 

Nights such as this were a common occurrence 
in the home of our school president and first lady. The 
Roses hosted an average of three to four dinners per 
week for students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Parents 
Weekend, Homecoming, and the beginning and end 
of the year were especially busy. When asked if they 
partook in such fine dining every night of the week, 
Dr. Rose replied with a laugh, "No, we certainly enjoy 
the regular hotdogs and pizza too!" 

The preparation that went into a dinner with 
the Roses was handled by Mrs. Rose and dining services. 
Invitations were sent, flowers and decorations were 
ordered and the menu was prepared. Students employed 
by dining services served as hosts for the evening. 

The dinners allowed the Roses to gain 
students' perspective of the university for an evening. 
They discussed problems with registration, nonexistent 
parking on campus, why freshmen were not allowed to 
have vehicles, and of course, the unpopular rule against 
'double-punching' on weekends. Rose took some of the 
students' concerns to his administration to be reviewed 
and discussed. In discussing problems that had already 
been tackled by administration, such as double punching 
on the weekends, Rose took the opportunity to share 
his perspective with students. 

Most students will go to a college or university 
and never even know their president's name, much less 
get to know him or her. Rose wanted to create an open 
and friendly environment at the university. He believed 
that by hosting intimate dinners with students, he could 
accomplish that. "It's nice to have a dinner out of the 
structure of an organization, but a casual dinner gives 
us the opportunity to be more personal," he explained." 

With conversation that ranged from classes to "The Bachelor," Dr. 
and Mrs. Rose entertains her guests. The bachelor from ABC's "The 
Bachelor" was a relative of Mrs. Rose. ■ Photo by Jenny Brockwell

To commemorate the 215th 
anniversary of the signing of the U.S. 
Constitution, the newest addition to 
our campus was unveiled. On 
September 17th, Constitution Day, a 
life-size bronze statue of our fourth 
president, James Madison, was 
formally dedicated. The statue, which 
was a gift to the university from the 
Forbes family, stood at 5 feet 2 and a 
half inches. The ceremony was 
highlighted with performances from 
the Colonial Williamsburg Fife and 
Drums Corps playing several period 
pieces. The statue served as a reminder 
to all students of the honor and 
integrity of James Madison. ■

■ their own w 

and marching to the beat of their own drummer... 

The Marching Royal Dukes (MRDs) have been known as a legend at the university, and 
in fact, all over the country. Referred to as "Virginia's finest," the MRDs prided themselves on top- 
notch halftime shows and unwavering enthusiasm and spirit. Most spectators at the football games 
looked forward to the halftime shows just as much as the actual football game. The MRDs' flawless 
performances required countless hours of practice. Drills and choreography were all important 
aspects of a successful performance. Despite the harsh commitment that marching band required, 
members found it to be worth the time and hard work. Many members loved being a part of the 
MRDs and developed close relationships with their fellow instrumentalists, making them feel like 
part of a huge family. 

The MRDs performed several themed shows every year. This year's included patriotic 
songs like "Thunder and Blazes "; a show that contained "How The West Was Won," "Late in the 
Evening," and "Let There Be Peace On Earth"; in addition to their traditional pre game show. 
Sophomore Erin Cooper stated, "I really loved the shows we did this year. I really liked that most 
of them had a theme and that they were pieces the crowd would recognize." 

Although many of the members of marching band were music majors who were 
required to participate in marching band for two years, it was an activity they would have done 
willingly whether they were required to or not. "I love performing, especially for the Parade of 
Champions which is a high school band competition that we host each year. It is so awesome to 
perform for a bunch of high school kids who think the MRDs are the best thing ever," expressed 
Cooper. Sophomore Adam Dalton got a great sensation out of performing for the crowds at 
football games. "I like the fun of performing in front of a crowd and getting them pumped up for 
the game," he explained. Cooper added, "I love how people are so dedicated to it and that we work 
so hard to put on great shows every year." (Continued on p. 32)

(Cont.fromp.31) Band members experienced various 
advantages as well as disadvantages from participating in the 
organization. Dalton said that band was "a lot of hard work 
and a huge time commitment. You lose a lot of your free time 
in the evenings and on the weekends." Cooper listed the hours 
they had to put in to practicing and performing: "We rehearse 
every night of the week for an hour and a half, and if there is a 
game, we have rehearsals on Saturday mornings. We definitely 
have to rehearse a lot but it certainly pays off," she said 

Despite the huge time commitment that the 
MRDs had to face, they felt that the close-knit group they 
joined was well worth the commitment. Lillard said, "I like 
feeling like part of a family. We help each other out on the 
field and stick up for each other." Others loved meeting new 
people that had the same interests and aspirations as they did. 
Cooper commented, "I think the biggest advantages are getting 
to meet so manv incredible people who love band as much as I 
do and getting to perform for such big crowds." She added, I 
have also met some of my best friends in the MRDs. I can 
always go to band and know that all my friends will be there and 
I'll always have someone to talk to. That's such a great feeling." 

Dalton expressed that marching band gave him a 
great opportunity to do what he loved — play music. "I just 
like to play. .and working hard to get to a finished project is 
really rewarding. It's fun to see how far we all progress 
throughout the season." Being part of the band gave music 
majors a valuable experience within their field of study. Dalton, 
who was majoring in music education, gained skills and 
experience lor his future career. "As a high school teacher, you're 
inevitably destined to teach a marching band. So it's a good 
experience to see how it works from the inside." 

The MRDs also received other benefits from 
participating in the marching band. Dalton revealed that one 
of the perks to being in the band was traveling. "You get into 
the games for free and get to go on fun trips like the Macy's 
parade and next year we're going to Ireland and Germany," he said. 

The MRDs highly respected education was often 
what attracted students to attend the university. Cooper 
admitted, "I have always wanted to be in a band that is this 
good and is this big. It was one of the main reasons I came to 
this university. Its reputation definitely made me want to come 
here and be a Marching Royal Duke." ■

As many solutions do, FLEX off campus 
started with a complaint. In past years, students 
often sacrificed Spanky's off-campus dining for 
another Saturday night at D-hall, not wanting to 
waste a punch or spend their hard-earned cash. 
"If only we could use our JAC cards to buy stuff 
off campus," students generally lamented. 

After years of complaints, one student 
finally decided to do something about it. Then- 
senior senator and future student body president, 
David Mills started researching the subject. Told 
that the use of JAC cards off campus would never 
work, Mills took the initiative to make it happen. 
He added the issue to his community package 
platform as he ran for student body president in 
the spring of 2001. 

Laying the groundwork for this project 
was a major undertaking, especially since it was a 
program that was new to the university. First, 
Mills had to talk with the administration to make 
sure that this was a project that would benefit the 

college community. Towana Moore, assistant vice 
president of business service, served as a liaison 
between Mills and other administration. Once 
Mills had gained the approval of the university 
administration, he held a community merchants' 
informational meeting to introduce the idea of 
FLEX off campus to local businesses. 

Victorious in the presidential election. 
Mills plotted out his course of action. Researching 
other universities that had such programs, he 
composed a contract to be submitted to the 
attorney general of Virginia. The contract reached 
the attorney general's office during transition, 
which slowed the process. Since the new attorney 
general's staff was hesitant to grant the contract, 
Mills had to look elsewhere to ensure that FLEX 
off campus would become a reality. He came 
across Student Advantage, a debit cash system 
similar to Mastercard or Visa. With the card 
service in place, the hunt for interested area 
businesses began, (continued on p. 38)

(continued from p. 36) "The university had to sign the 
contract with Student Advantage under the agreement 
that we had ten businesses that would participate in this 
program," Mills explained. "We aggressively asked 
downtown restaurants, many of which were wary because 
they were unsure of how the program would work." 
Fortunately, student-frequented restaurants such as IHOP 
and Chili's began to sign on with the program. Once other 
businesses found out, they jumped on board as well. 

The fall semester proved to be a learning 
experience as students packed Harrisonburg eating 
establishments and discovered the new program. "One 
or the biggest problems that many students were confused 
about was that since it was a university-sponsored 
program, no one could purchase alcohol with their FLEX 
account." Mills added, "but the problems we experienced 
were not unexpected." 

Over the course of the first month, students 
spent over $94,000 using the FLEX off campus system. "I 
used FLEX for the first time last night-it was absolutely 
gratifying," sophomore Daniel Dunlap expressed 
excitedly. "We wanted pizza, but none of us had any 
money. Luckily I had FLEX, and Chanello's accepted 
FLEX." The most popular venue with students was Chili's, 
and IHOP came in a close second. Mills confirmed that 
the turnout had been tremendous and extremely 
encouraging, hoping that other restaurants and businesses 
would jump aboard the FLEX bandwag on as well. ■

You've heard the stories before. Perhaps it was on your tour as a

a freshman. A school of almost a 100 years in age is a haven for ghost stories, 
strange happenings, and quirky facts. 

Here is a mini-biography of our school, and the legends that make 
it truly one of a kind.

Like all good histories, we must start at the 
beginning. Did you ever wonder how a university got 
here in the first place amidst the farms, chicken 
factories and mountains? When the Virginia General 
Assembly was looking for a place to build a women's 
college, Senator Keezell, for whom the English 
building is named, was influential in bringing the 
women's college to the Shenandoah Valley. 

The present-day English department then 
served as the gymnasium, complete with track, 
basketball courts, and a swimming pool. Evidence of 
the pool is noticeable by the slope of the ground level 

The gym and track were located on what is 
now the first, second, and third floors. When Keezell 
Hall was being built, the construction workers came 
across a huge boulder underground. Because they could 
not move it, they had to build a closet around it. So 
there was an unmarked closet in Keezell, on the ground 
floor, that appeared on a map of the building with a 
question mark over it. ^ 

Original Campus 

From Wilson Hall's prominence as the 
university's most recognizable structure, one would 
be led to believe it was the first building on campus. 
However, Wilson, named for President Woodrow 
Wilson, did not make its stately appearance until 1934. 
Jackson Hall was in fact the first building on campus. 
Jackson served as the center of campus life, including 
classrooms, the dining hall, dorm rooms, and 
administrative offices. Even the president of the college 
lived in Jackson. 

The girl's college 

When its doors opened to 209 students in 
1908, the college was named The State Normal and 
Industrial School for Women at Harrisonburg. The 
name was later changed to the State Normal School 
for Women, then State Teacher's College, then 
Madison College, and was finally given its current 
name in 1977. 

Students, administration and faculty 
gather in 1 934 for the cornerstone 
laying of Wilson Hall. Wilson Hall was 
named after the 28th president, 
Woodrow Wilson, who was born in 



Girls check out for the evening 
at Alumnae Hall, which served 
as the Dean of Women's office in 
the earlier part of the century. 
Because the women were not 
allowed to leave campus 
without granted permission, 
students instead found other 
ways to enjoy themselves, such 
as the snowball fight shown 
herein 1950. 

■ '.kari: 

During the time of the women's college, rules 
and regulations for dating were extremely strict. Men 
would come and meet their dates at Alumnae 
Hall. Before they could step foot on campus however, 
they had to clear their dates through the Dean of 
Women. They were issued a card, which had to be 
presented before they could see their date for the 

Since the girls could not take their dates to 
their rooms, there were special reception rooms for 
couples. In the Village area residence halls, for example, 
there were two little rooms off to the side of the 
television lounge where couples could socialize. The 
rooms now hold snack and drink machines, and are 
used for storage. 

The dress code used to be rather strict also. 
Girls were not allowed to sunbathe, could not wear 
shorts, and had to wear raincoats when it rained. If 
they were caught disobeying the rules, they were given 
a "call-down," and after receiving a certain number of 
these, girls would be confined to their rooms for the 

A few decades later, in the 1970s and 1980s, 
there was an influx in enrollment, as Madison College 
gained regional and national attention. Temporary 
buildings were added to house new students — trailers. 
The trailers stood proudly on Hillside Field, adorned 
with flower boxes on window sills. The trailers are 
still in use today, though not for housing. They are 
used as classrooms on the east side of campus.

the legends 

All schools have their stones and this university 
certainly has its fair share. No one really knows how they 
got started or if there is any truth behind them. Some are 
scary, some harmless rumor, others are just weird, but 
nonetheless they are tales that are handed down every 
year, and give the university a character all its own. 

The Cupola 

High atop Wilson Hall sits a bell tower, or 
cupola, that overlooks the quad. Legend has it that during 
the 1950s, a female student's boyfriend broke up with 
her and she became so depressed, that she decided the 
only way to end her suffering was to hang herself from 
the cupola. Late at night it is rumored that you can see 
her body still swaying back and forth from the tower. 

The mystery of the cupola has sparked a tradition 
that students try to fulfill. Each year many students sneak 
into Wilson Hall and climb into the tower. A former 

student remembers, "One night my friend and I were 
rather bored, so we decided, hey lets go in the cupola. 
We journeyed to the fourth floor of Wilson, went in 
an unmarked door, and somehow ended up at the 
clock. We decided it would be funny to reset the clock, 
so we did. We went in another door and found stairs 
that led to the cupola. This was really eerie looking, 
the combination of the light and hazy dust. I remember 
we looked for bells in the cupola, but there were none, 
just huge speakers. Next, we climbed up this rickety- 
looking ladder to the top of the cupola, and looked 
out onto the quad. While you are up there, you are 
supposed to leave your initials in the wood, so we 
added ours to the countless others." 

While they did not come in contact with any 
ghosts, they did mention that there were a lot of strange 
things up there, such as dead birds, signatures from 
fraternities that do not exist on campus any more, and 
of course, the huge speakers. ■ 



Before D-Hall , Festival and Dukes. 
Harrison Hall served as a dining 
facility for Madison College. ■ Under 
Dr. Carrier's administration, the 
university gained national attention 
as a leading school. Because of the 
sudden influx in population, trailers 
were set up along Hillside field as 
temporary housing." 

The Tunnels 

Legend has it that tunnels under the Quad were used in 
the early pan of the century as a walkway for the girls in bad 
weather. While that could have been true, the tunnels were mainly 
used for utility purposes. The tunnels are rumored to run between 
Harrison Hall and Ashby Hall across the Quad. Apparently in 
the 1950s, a girl was murdered while she was walking through 
the tunnels late at night. No one knows exactly what happened, 
but some have claimed they can still hear her screams at night. 

This rumor sparked another pre-graduation tradition. 
In past years several students have snuck into the tunnels at night, 
and crossed to the other side. Many report that they have heard 
distinct taps along the walls or footsteps behind them, only to 
turn around and see nothing but the shadows of old desks and 
chairs in storage there. "Perhaps the scariest thing about being 
down there, one student noted, is the anticipation that you think 
you are going to see something." ■ 


Back in the 1970s, there was a couple that had been dating 
for a while and eventually they had a few relationship problems. 
The girl decided to break it off.Since she could not stand the 
thought of running into him and having to talk to him, she 
decided to go home for a few days. The boy was so upset and 
heartbroken at her for leaving that he threw himself on the train 
tracks that night, committing suicide. Supposedly, his spirit now 
haunts the third floor of his former residence hall, Wayland. 
Throughout the years, there have been many rumored sightings 
of him by residents, hall directors, resident assistants, and 
housekeepers. According to the Wayland hall director, |umor 
Hans Schultz, " This summer, the housekeeper from Hoffman 
was walking down their third floor hall, and because the building 
is right beside Wayland, she could see into our 3rd floor. The 
housekeeper said that she distinctly saw a boy open a door into a 
room, and walk into it. She immediately called our housekeeper, 
because it being summer, there was not suppose to be anybody 
else here. Our housekeeper ran up the stairs, only to find an 
open door and a completely empty room." ■

When 21 -year-old Matthew Shepherd was murdered 
in Laramie, Wyoming in 1998, sophomore Julia Redden 
remembered it clearly. "I have never been one to let news 
dominate my life, but I definitely remember hearing about it 
and thinking it was just sick," she said. 

For junior Ryan McWilliams, director of the Theatre 
II production, the event had a profound impact from the moment 
it occurred as well. "I remember watching all the media coverage 
of it when it happened and my heart just sank," he said. "I 
instantly felt this kinship with Matthew. I felt like it could have 
been me. Ever since then, I've been interested in all of it." 

Moises Kaufmann and his Tectonic Theater Project 
wrote a play based on the event after traveling to Laramie six 
times. Over the course of one and a half years, thev conducted 
more than 200 interviews and wrote the script of The 
Laramie Project. 

When he heard about the project, McWilliams felt 
compelled to read the script. "What I really liked about the play 
was that it held a completely unbiased view on homosexuality. 
It wasn't saying, 'homosexuality is wrong, gays are bad.' It just 
told it exactly how it happened, he said. 

The script of The Laramie Project was written almost 
entirely word for word from the interviews of family, friends 
and townspeople of Laramie, Wyoming in the aftermath of tha 
Matthew Shepherd murder. The set was very simplistic, with] 
only a black curtain stretched across the stage and eight woodertj 
chairs set up for the principal cast. Each principal actor portrayed 
eight or nine different characters from the town of Laramie. Some 
cast members also portrayed the media and jury in different scenes] 
throughout the play. The play was made up of many monologues, 
with little cast interaction. Cast members carefully concentrated 
on the message being portrayed to the audience. 

At Theatre II, the show was completely student run 
and produced from start to finish. (Continued on p.51)

(Cont.fromp.49) "The university is really luck)' to have a space 
where students are relatively free to do as they want," said senior 
Lauren Paradise, also a cast member. "Knowing that everything 
in the show came from us, not from a faculty member, makes 
the show that much more special." 

"Since the show was totally student run, it was a lot of 
work," said Paradise. "Ryan would just ask if there was anyone 
that could stay and work. There were a few really long nights 
where people would end up staying until eight or nine in the 
morning. A lot of the cast worked double-dun- as designers and 
actors, and in Ryan's case, director. There can be no divas in this 
theater because everyone has to be willing to give evervthing." 

"The great thing about Theatre II shows is that everyone 
invests so much into the productions," said McW'illiams. "The 
actors, the lighting technicians, the sound technicians-they al! 
are involved to a very high degree. It turns out much better 
because everyone cares so much." 

Because the work was so demanding, the cast members 
became very close throughout the production and staging of the 
play. "The cast was nothing short of phenomenal, and I was so 

lucky to be with such a talented and wonderful group," said cast 
member sophomore Mia Wilson. 

Paradise agreed. "We had a pretty large cast as far as 
Theatre II shows go, but it worked reallv well because we had 
separate rehearsals for a long time. For the first tew weeks it was 
really only the main ensemble that rehearsed together. It gave us 
a chance to bond as a cast, and got us used to working with each 
other and helped us to delve into the material in a way that 
would not have been possible with everyone there," she explained. 

The production impacted audience members as well 
as the cast. "Watching a play like that made me feel much more 
connected to the story than I did from just watching the news," 
said Redden. "When you feel like you understand the entire 
town's mentality, then you feel like you must understand more 
of what it was like to grow up with [Shepherd]." 

"The message of the plav was to 'Sav it right, " said 
cast member sophomore Joseph Sorrentino. "The job of the plav 
was to tell this story as accurately as possible, and through that 
make the world aware of hate crimes. The only way to end hate 
is to educate the world. And I truly believe that is what this play 
is trying to do." 

"I feel the overall message of the play was one of 
tolerance," said Wilson. "The plav was neither pro nor anti- 
homosexuality. It presented manv opinions and led the audience 
to make their own decisions. Sorrentino summed it up by saving 
"the whole experience was one of truth, something which I will 
never forget. ■

Would you lick a car tire clean for money? I bet you 
would! Sophomore Katie Murphy gave it a go for just S 1 70 when 
MTV's "I Bet You Will" visited campus in September to test the 
spontaneirv and initiative of several students. 

Hosts of the bizarre MTV show challenged and convinced 
students to perform stunts ranging from weird to disgusting in return 
tor random amounts of cash, on the spot. Murphy, tor example, agreed 
to lick a car tire clean, rims and hubcaps, tor just below two hundred 
dollars. Other students were not so eager tor the cash but perhaps tor 
the fame and excitement of being on national tele\ision. One female 
student swallowed six live goldfish tor just S50. 

Sophomore James Matarese volunteered to drink three 
1 6-ounce bottles of corn syrup in less than five minutes for the mere 
amount of S50. He didn't succeed. With one bottle remaining, 
Matarese utilized the bucket the MTV production assistants had 
nearby and sadly did not win the S50. 

Though most of the volunteers picked bv the show's 
host and production assistants agreed to one of the wacky 
assortment of tasks and stunts, the majority of the crowd was 
not up to the challenge. Some of those who agreed to the 
crazy torture were repaid nicelv. Junior Brian Hoffman was 
convinced by MTV assistants to dump a bucket of fish guts 
into his '97 Jeep Cherokee Sport. (Continued on p.55)

(Cont.fromp.53) Hoffman received $300 for letting the fish guts sit 
in the back of his car for an agonizing 45 minutes. For the amount 
of $200, sophomore Zach Jenks sat as a human statue in a mold 
of paper strips covered with a mix of flour and water. For two 
hours, he sat as other students took their turn at bets. 

MTV cameras on campus marked just one of the stops 
the show made as part of a tour of smaller colleges along the East 
Coast. The fall season of "I Bet You Will" was only the show's 
second run, after premiering during the summer. MTV called 
asking permission to bring their new show onto campus, and 
paid all the necessary expenses. Students watched themselves and 
their friends a few weeks later when clips from the show's taping 
were aired outside the Festival. ■

that most people only 
wondered about. ■ Photo

\\ r ho knew that a mixture of tea. lemonade and Coke 
could make beer? Or at least look like it on the big screen. 
Graduates Kristen Evans and Lauren Grooms discovered this 
secret while they worked as production assistants last summer 
on an independent feature film called A Circle on the Cross. As 
production assistants, Evans and Grooms helped with script 
reading, made props, helped with filming, prepared the set, called 
the cast, chauffeured the camera equipment, and did any other 
odd jobs that needed doing, even getting water for the actors. 

Evans and Grooms were put to work a week before the 
actors arrived, sitting in to read the script. Thev were surprised when 
the production crew asked for their ideas for changes. "Thev liked 
our input," said Evans. "Thev actuallv took a few of our suggestions." 

Evans recalled running through the woods one day, 
dodging trees, in heels and a skirt, just to set up a particular 
camera shot before the actor was called to the set. She also sat in 
front of the camera on another occasion. "Thev said I had the 
same complexion as the lead actress so I had to sit in front or the 
camera while they set it up tor her," said Evans. 

Filmed in a neighborhood in La Grange, a small town 
about an hour south or Atlanta, Georgia, the movie was constantly 
interrupted bv the goings-on or everyday life. Grooms once had 
to run to someone's home just to ask him to turn oft his leaf 
blower because it was interfering with the sound or the movie. 
Grooms and Evans aJso said thev made friends with the Winn 
Dixie Supermarket employees, since they made multiple trips 
there daily to buy items for props or food for the actors and crew. 

The movie budget, though only $75,000, paid all 
expenses for Evans and Grooms for the two weeks they helped 
on the set. Grooms worked for the experience and for fun. Evans 
helped with the movie as part or an internship she had with 
Legacy Group Productions, a marketing firm in Harrisonburg. 
She continued to work part rime for the company after her internship. 
Cheryl Elliott, owner or Legacy Group Productions, was executive 
producer of the film and a university alumnus. She had produced 
independent documentaries, children's films, multimedia 
productions, and several feature film projects. (Continued on p.58)

(Com. from p.57) Based on Thomas Cadwaleder Jones' original play 
that won the New York Drama League Best Play Award, A Circle 
on the Cross follows James Good, a Vietnam prisoner of war, as 
he returns home 20 vears after his capture. James comes home 
to find his wife Jo Ann has married his brother William, and his 
20 year-old son Chester, is in a rebellious phase of self discovery. 
Actor Terrance Mann played James Good. Mann was the original 
"Rum Turn Tugger" in Cats, more recently, "Jekyll" and "Hyde" 
in Jekyll and Hyde and "Frank N Furter" in The Rocky Horror 
Picture Show. Actor and co-executive producer Steven Earl- 
Edwards co-wrote the screenplay for the film and had worked

professionally as an actor, director, producer and stuntman in 
television and stage for more than 20 years. 

Even though the cast was small, and Evans and Grooms 
did not meet any blockbuster film actors, they valued their 
experience just the same. "It was cool because it was such a small 
film, but [those working on the film] kept throwing big names 
around," said Evans. They agreed that in the future, anyone they 
met during their experience would probably help them out with 
their careers. "It was such a small group ot people working on it 
that we became close with everyone," said Grooms.

Sergeant Rick Gay made the movie production quite a learning 
experience for them by sharing his real life experiences of 
Vietnam. "It was an eye-opener lor us because I didn't know all 
that went on," said Evans. According to Grooms and Evans, those 
involved in the making of the film were working for free and 
hoped that not just Vietnam veterans, but all United States war 
veterans would see the film as an honor and a tribute. 

The movie premiere was planned for the spring in Ireland 
and La Grange. Evans and Grooms were both invited to go, all 
expenses paid. They were looking forward to seeing the cast and 
crew again, but also anticipated the premiere atmosphere. After 

the premiere, the film was to visit the Screen Actors Guild (SAG) 
awards for the experimental film category, then go to film festivals, 
and sttaight to video. "Just to see something that you've worked 
so hard on, seeing it on the big screen is going to be exciting," 
said Grooms. 

Though both Evans and Grooms were marketing majors, 
they planned to take different career paths. But both thought 
their movie-making experience would help them in the future. 
"This has been a great background project and together with all 
the other marketing projects I've done with Cheryl, it has become 
an invaluable experience," said Grooms, who wanted to pursue 
sports marketing. Evans, interested in pursuing promotions as a 
profession, said it was interesting to see how easily the production 
crew could get things done over the phone in a matter of minutes. 
Through working as production assistants, Evans and 
Grooms were on the set by 6:30 every morning and not home 
until 7:30 at night six days a week for two weeks. They said they 
would be glad to accept the opportunity again. "Not everyone 
can say that they've been on a movie set," said Grooms. "It was 
challenging and rewarding at the same time, but I'd definitely 
do it again." ■

Student Ambassadors 

While many students often complained about their 
workload and lack of free time. Student Ambassadors tackled 
their projects and responsibilities with enthusiasm and Duke 
Dog pride. Embodying the qualities of leadership, 
friendliness, and spirit, the ambassadors truly lived up to their 
mission of "students serving students-past, present and future." 

The ambassadors led 2,500 tours a year, often in 
the wind, rain or snow. They guided about 30,000 people 
around campus, leaving a lasting impression on students, 
parents and alumni. Club president, senior Dave Urso 
explained that 32 percent of freshmen ranked their campus 
visits as the prime reason thev decided to attend this university. 

Many ambassadors wanted to join the group 
because they enjoyed the tours they participated in as 
incoming freshmen. "I reallv wanted to be a tour guide," 
said sophomore Lawson Ricketts, "I remember taking the 
tour before coming here and knowing it was something that 
I wanted to be a part of." 

The ambassadors gave tours not only to prospective 
students but to alumni as well. "Alumni tours were so much 
fun, said junior Jessica Quinn, "I loved to walk around with 
those women who went to school here 50 years ago. They had 
the best stories." Junior Hector Salazar-Salame agreed, "We did a 
lot with alumni. We helped with commencement, graduation, 
senior packets, alumni reunions and alumni weekends." 

Ambassadors also took a leadership role during 
events such as Parent's Weekend and Homecoming. They 
were in charge of presenting the (Continued on p. 62)

(Cont. from p. 60) prestigious Parent of the Year award on 
Parent's Weekend and assisted in the general festivities. 
Homecoming was another big weekend for the 
ambassadors. They won the "Most Spirited" award in the 200 1 
Homecoming Parade with the theme "Connected 
Members Celebrate: Past, Present and Future." Their big win 
was a result of enthusiastic members who would stop at 
nothing to heighten school spirit. Senior Steven Clark 
recalled that he had to "dress as an old lady. I was supposed to 
be an alumni." With their big smiles, spirit fingers and 
constant enthusiasm, one couldn't help but feel cheerful 
around the ambassadors. 

At Christmas, the ambassadors hosted an event 
called Operation Santa Claus. The program was held to 
benefit underprivileged members of the community. 
"Operation Santa Claus was probablv my favorite event," said 
Clark, "We arranged a cappella shows and collected toys. It 
was great giving back to Harrisonburg." Last year they 
raised Si, 500 and collected about 300 toys for 
underprivileged children in the area. 

In order to improve their leadership skills, 
ambassadors attended an annual convention, a time where 
the ambassadors got to mingle with students from other 
schools and learn new ideas. Quinn recalled, "We got to meet 
so many people from all over and our spirit overtook 
everyone. We had so much fun." The group represented the 
university positively at the convention, said Salazar-Salame, 
"We even won the Lip Svnc show. We've won it lor at least 
the past two years." 

In addition to their enthusiasm for helping other 
students love the university, the ambassadors valued their 
friendships and knew how to have fun with each othet. 

"People in this organization did spend a lot of time 
together, not because we had to, but because we wanted to," 
said Clark. Senior Night and ctash bars were weeklv affairs tor 
the group. Every Wednesday night after their meeting, a 
large group of them would head out to D-Hall, occupving 
many of the tables. They also hosted tall and spring semi- 
formals, and parties for Halloween and St. Patrick's Day. 
"Since I joined my freshman year, these people have 
become my cote group of friends," said junior Carrie Tagye. 
"Thev are seriously my best friends in the world. We are a fam ily. " 

Students interested in becoming ambassadors 
applied in the fall, and new members were welcomed in 
the spring. "Getting into an organization can be very 
overwhelming, so we had 'bigs' and 'littles, "' said Clark, 
"You got teally close to them and made a friend right 
away. Everyone supported each other." Each ambassador 
meeting included the "Above and Beyond" jar. The jar 
filled with candy was passed to a different ambassador 
every week; a person who everyone felt went above and 
beyond that week in his or her duties and friendships. 

Ambassadors were involved in many other 
organizations on campus as well. Sororities, fraternities, a 
cappella groups, theater, and sports clubs were all 
additional areas of campus life that members enjoyed. 
A deep love for the university and a desire to improve the 
campus brought these 100 to 150 ambassadors together. 
Utso summed up their purpose, saying, "We were out 
there because we loved this university and evetything that 
it stood fot, and because there was nothing that made us 
feel better than having a freshman come up to us in D- 
Hall and say, 'I just wanted to sav thank vou because you 
ate the reason I came here." ■

Members of WXJM offered an unforgettable experience to I 
students and musicians from all over the country by gathering 100 
bands for the annual MACRoCk convention. The two-day music 
conference attracted thousands of college students to Harrisonburg. 
An entire year was spent working on MACRoCk, the Mid-Atlantic 
College Radio Conference. The conference was coordinated and 
organized by a committee from WXJM, 88.7 FM, the student-run 
radio station in Harrisonburg. 

Many MACRoCk attendees did not realize that preparations 
for the event began a year before the actual concerts. Senior Matt 
Schnable, MACRoCk coordinator, started planning the 2002 event 
in April of 2001. Schnable worked on reserving venues such as PC 
Ballroom and Godwin Gym, two of the major facilities needed to 
hold the concerts. 

After taking a break for the summer, the MACRoCk 
committee continued planning for the event soon after they returned 
to school. In September, Schnable and the committee began discussing 
MACRoCk's website, an integral part of the process of putting the 
show together. The MACRoCk website allowed interested bands to 
apply. The committee had to make sure the website be up-to-date 
and running smoothly. When applications began to arrive, Schnable 
and the committee started booking bands. This process began in early 
October and continued until the day of the concerts. (Continued on 
p. 66)

it's MACRoCk not McRocK

(Com. from p. (A) Also in October, WXJM began another 
important preparation for MACRoCk: promotions and 
advertising. It was crucial for WXJM to publicize the 
spring event, so they could recruit bands as well as attract 
fans. The MACRoCk committee worked with various 
music magazines to get the word out about MACRoCk. 
They also made flyers and sent information about the 
event to magazines and record labels. The committee also 
contacted bands that had played at past conferences, 
offering them a chance to participate in MACRoCk again. 
The next part of the ptocess was actually 
organizing the bands that had been booked and making 
sure they had a variety of musical genres represented. "We 
had a picture in our heads of the different genres that we 
wanted for this year and we pieced them together." 

Schnable said. 

During the next few months, WXJM members 
worked on talking to record labels to organize the label 
expo, which occurred on the Saturday of the conference. 
"It was a really good opportunity for bands to talk to 
different record labels," stated Schnable. The label expo 
allowed bands to sell records or promote themselves to 
record labels, gaining unknown bands some recognition 
and possibly getting them one step closer to a record deal. 

As spring approached, the dates for MACRoCk 
got closer and closer. Schnable and the other committee 
members worked diligently to orchestrate the events. They 
planned the final details of the shows, deciding which 
venue each group would use and the order the bands would 
perform. They also discussed the final details of each show 
with the technical and sound crews to ensure that everyone 
was working in unison. 

The day of the concerts was stressful and hectic 
for the MACRoCk staff, as bands arrived and thousands 
of music fans flocked to the university. About 90 to 100 

bands played over the course of two days, at various venues 
on campus as well as restaurants off campus such as Court 
Square Theater and the Little Grill. Schnable had to make 
sure that everything "was on cue with what we had planned 
out. Time was a constraint and the key to making the 
conference run smoothly," he explained. In spite of time 
constraints, everyone involved did a great job of keeping 
right on schedule. 

The two nights of MACRoCk were filled with 
pure music of all genres, ranging from hip hop to rock to 
jazz and American folk music. Some of the bands in 
attendance were The Dismemberment Plan, Rainer Maria, 
Akrobatik, Coheed and Cambria, Avail, Ted Leo and the 
Pharmacists, Karate, Matt Pond Pa., Onelinedrawing, 
Hackensaw Boys, Joshua Fit for Battle, and Engine Down. 

The purpose of the conference was to "cover as 
many genres as we could and not favor one genre. We 
wanted to represent college radio," explained Schnable. 
The last band to play was Fugazi, a well-respected band 
in the music industry. The band played at Godwin Gym 
to an audience of over 1,000 people. "Getting Fugazi to 
play was special for MACRoCk and everyone who was 
involved," Schnable stated. 

Schnable admitted that working all year long 
on this conference was well worth the effort. "I was so 
pleased with the outcome of it. It was a relief when it was 
over because it went really well and people were happy," 
he acknowledged. "To bring this to people for two days 
and allow them to be absorbed in the music was definitely 
a very good feeling," Schnable concluded. ■

Graduation is not only the day when students pack up their 
belongings and start a different chapter in their life; it is a day of 
reflection on their four, and sometimes five, years in college. The 
weather outside was somewhat unpleasant on May 5, 2002, the day 
that marked passage into the real world for seniors soon-to-be 
alumni. But chilly temperatures and light rain did not spoil the day, 
as approximately 3,000 students received their diploma in front of 
about 20,000 friends and family members. 

After the usual formalities, Senior Class Challenge Co-Chairs 
Stephen Davis and Darcy Langlais presented a check to President 
Linwood Rose for construction of a replica of the tempietta, a gazebo- 
like structure that James Madison designed as an architect. "Co- 
chairing the Senior Class Challenge was a great, yet challenging 
experience," Davis said. "Especially because of the tight job market 
and economy, it was difficult to get students to make pledges to give 
money for the class gift." 

Keynote speaker Governor Mark Warner addressed his first 
college commencement with words of insight and encouragement. 
The speaker selection committee usually books graduation speakers a 
year or two in advance. However, when the original 2002 speaker had 
to cancel unexpectedly, the newly-elected governor agreed to step in. 

Senior address speaker Kate Merke reminded her fellow 
graduates that "we are all going to reflect on our time here in a different 
way. With different stories to tell our children, different photos for 
the scrapbook and different memories to take with us." The Media 
Arts and Design major urged her classmates to never be afraid to fail, 
to never put limitations on themselves, and to "learn like you'll live 
forever." In spite of the different experiences each senior had, "we do 
have at least one thing in common," Mercke noted, "we have all called 
JMU our home and have conquered JMU in our own way." ■

One weekend each year is dedicated 
to showing parents what life is like for their 
child at college. On the weekend of October 
fourth through the sixth, the city of 
Harrisonburg and its surrounding areas were 
flooded with ",000 to 9,000 parents eager to 
experience life through the eyes of their children. 

For this special weekend of events, 
parents stayed in hotels and motels as far north 
as Woodstock and as far south as Lexington. 
Provided with just a campus map and a 
schedule of special events, families fended for 
themselves out in the citv streets, hoping that 
their child knew the way around. 
Beginning on Friday, the weekend was full of 
activities for the whole family to enjoy. 

Families could choose from events 
including canoeing on the Shenandoah River, 
a 5K Race, academic receptions, a tour of the 
Arboretum, a gala dinner, an array of concerts 
and athletic events, various activities at the 
University Recreation Center, and a trip to 
James Madison's home, Montpelier. 

Kicking off the weekend was a Friday 
night concert held in Wilson Hall.

parents weekend 



(Cont.fromp.75)The featured band was 1964: The 
Tribute. The band was in its eighteenth year of 
concerts modeled after the Beatles: playing their 
songs, and acting, dressing, and talking just as 
the Beatles did. With a following of some 
people who had seen the band in excess often 
times, the group was very well-received. 
Students were able to witness their parents 
rocking to the tunes of the Beatles as they had 
when they were teenagers. 

Saturday night featured a Pops 
Concert, a favorite of past Parent's Weekends. 
By tar the most popular event for the weekend 
was the Dukes football game. This year's game 
was played against the University of Maine. 
Preordered tickets left only 1,000 tickets for 
unreserved seats. Prior to kickoff, the 
Outstanding Parent awards were presented. 
Students had the opportunity to nominate their 
own parents, or any parents they thought were 
worthy of such an honor. Applications were 
available online and submitted along with 
student essays that determined the winning 
parents. The winners were Neil Armstrong and 

Dave and Debbie Lumsden. Although the Dukes 
did not come out with the win, fun was had by 
all. The parents added to the spirited atmosphere 
of the football game. Said senior Student Duke 
Club member Tami Mas, "the students act the 
same at the football even with thousands of 
parents there. Students wanted to show their 
parents their school spirit." And evidently parents 
enjoyed showing off their own school spirit. 
Decked out in university colors, the parents at 
times were as rowdy as their children. 

Although many parents were 
experiencing their first parents weekend, others 
were veterans. Brian and Herman Frese were 
attending their seventh Parent's Weekend. With 
one student attending the university and one a 
recent graduate, they said the weekends "just keep 
getting better." 

Despite the over-crowded city, parking 
problems, and long waits at restaurants, parents 
chose to tough it out and enjoyed their weekend 
overall. Teresa Ellis, mother of freshman Lindsay 
Ellis said, "the weekend was very nice, well set- 
up, and well-organized." ■

in prayer for the victims of the tragedy and their families. 
As people of different religions and backgrounds stood 
up to share their differing perspectives, they were united 
by a common theme of peace and prayer. Several musical

(Cont. from p. 78) Hundreds of students and faculty gathered 
on the Quad to observe the raising of the flags arid participate 
in a five-minute moment of silence to honor the memory of 
the victims and their tamilies. The flags were raised at noon 
by the ROTC Color Guard, surrounded by a serene and 
patriotic atmosphere on the Quad. 

After the flag raising, the crowd stood to hear two 
students play a short trumpet rendition of "Taps." When the 
music ended, the moment or silence began, demonstrating 
that at such difficult times, silence can be more powerful than 
words. The union or people across campus created a powerful 
feeling of honor and somber remembrance on the Quad. 
Sophomore Amanda Lindberg felt that the moment of silence 
was an effective way of uniting people to remember and honor 
the tragedies of September 1 1 . "I thought it was reallv peaceful 
with that manv people gathered together like that, but it made 
me sad to see so many of us there on the Quad and think of 
all the innocent people who died, Lindberg expressed. 

tf -H^t~-*—^*, Candles flickered in the soft breeze as thousands 
of students and faculty joined together on the Commons to 
reflect on the events of September 1 1 of the previous year. 
After the crowd joined together to sing "Amazing Grace," 
Dr. Rose said a few words commending the community for 
their strength and compassion throughout the last year. He 
asked students and faculty to especially keep four families 
from the community in their thoughts and pravers: the 
Horning family, the Blass family, the Simmons family and 
the Thomson family. All tour families experienced personal 
losses in the terrorist attacks. 

The microphone was then opened up to the crowd, 
allowing rhose who wished to speak to share theif thoughts 
and reflections from the past year. The messages given by 
students were somber in tone, but filled with hope. Students, 
faculty and staff came together as family, helping the 
community as a whole make it through the darkest of times. 

"It was so nice to see such a large turn out of students 
for the vigil. It really showed that this university was a caring 
community, even one year after the tragedy, said sophomore 
Amanda Spray. ■

The ancient cities in Italy truly depict its history and people. During her study

I loved Italy. Everything about the country was amazing, 
from the food to the views to the ancient history, and there was 
absolutely nothing that I disliked. I consider myself one of the 
luckiest people alive because I was able to live and study there. I 
flew to Florence not knowing a soul, and came back with some 
of the best friends I have ever had. They experienced something 
with me that no one but a study abroad student would 
understand. We were able to step out of our normal American 
lives and become Italians, something that I would never have 
imagined possible. I had never taken a day of Italian in my life 
before my semester abroad. When I arrived in Italy, Alessandro 
Gentili and Claire Stypulkowski took me in and taught me how 
to become a true Italian. I was able to pick up the language very 
quickly through interacting with my Italian family and other 
Italians I spoke with day in and day out. 

Traveling was another amazing part of living in Italy. It 
was so easy to get on a train and visit another city, like Rome or 
Venice. We were even able to experience Fat Tuesday at the 
Carnivale in Venice. I have never seen such amazing costumes in 
my life. I traveled all over Italy, including a trip down to Sicily 
and I still felt like I hadn't seen enough. Besides Florence, my 
absolute favorite city was Venice. There is nothing as beautiful 
as a Venetian sunset over the Grand Canal. Standing on the Rialto 
Bridge watching the colors change was so magical, it couldn't be

described or captured in pictures. There was such a sense of 
history everywhere I went in Italy. Some of the youngest 
buildings were older than the oldest structures in the United 
States. Walking through thousand-year-old ruins made me think 
about how young our country truly was, and that our history 
was nothing compared to these ancient cities. Pompeii was one 
of those cities. It was an ancient Roman vacation spot that had 
amazing innovations. We knew this because of the suddenness 
of the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Everything, including the 
people, were buried as they tried to ecape. There is no other city 
like that in the world. 

I had never been a fan of art, especially art museums. 
But in Italy I went to an art museum at least once a week. Every 
church was like a museum, with the Catholic religion as the main 
focus of most of the art in Italy. The Uffizi, an an museum in 
Florence, housed some of the most famous works of art in the 
world. Florence had countless other museums like the Academia 
that held works of art that are universally known. 

I would never look back on the four months I spent in 
Italy with disappointment or regret. I was worried that I would 
miss college and my friends and family so much, and I did. But 
everything that I did and everything I learned completely 
overpowered any homesickness that I experienced. I would 
strongly recommend studying abroad to anyone. ■ 




As my senior year approached I began to think about 
what things I still wanted to do before I graduated. One of those 
things was studying abroad. I had traveled out of the country 
numerous times before, but I had never had the opportunity to 
study anywhere outside the United States. It was an opportunity 
that I knew I would regret if I didn't take. I wanted to go 
somewhere that was not like anywhere else I had been before. I 
looked at all the different programs and decided that the trip to 
Ghana, West Africa appealed to me the most. 

Ghana is a trip that I will never forget. I spent the entire 
month of June experiencing African culture and society. We spent 
most of our time in the capital city of Accra but also took road 
trips into other areas of Ghana. Ghana is a beautiful country. It 
was nothing like I thought it would be. Many people have a 
stereotypical image of Africa, but I found it very similar to parts 
of the United States. Most people think of Africa as a place where 
people live in villages and huts. In some of the very rural areas 
this might be true, but there are also big cities, as in any other 
nation. They had almost everything that we have here. 

In the mornings, we attended class at the University of 
Ghana in Legon. The campus was attractive and included many 
of the same facilities as this university, such as a post office, a 
bookstore, computer labs, and dining facilities. Since it was 
summer, we did not participate in regular classes but had guest 
lecturers instead. Some of our speakers were the best in the 
country in their respective subjects. I learned a great deal from 
them and gained a new perspective on things that I had not realized 

English is the official language of Ghana. Most people 
spoke English very well, which made things quite a bit easier on 
us. After a few days adjusting, we decided to venture out on our 
own. We quickly learned how to catch a cab and get exactly where 
we wanted to go. Ghana's economy was mostly based on petty 
trading. Everything had to be bargained for. The initial price is 
never what consumers should pay. One American dollar equaled 
approximately 5,800 CD's (Ghanaian money), so everything 
seemed much cheaper. We could get a cab to take us just about 
anywhere in town for two American dollars. I could buy a Coke 
or a beer for fifty cents. The exchange rate made it easy for us to 
buy a ton of souvenirs. 

On a detour from her cruise across the Volta River, small children offer Hinrichs a 
tour of the island. With English as the second language, Hinrichs found it easy to 
communicate with locals. ■ Hurrting across a suspended bridge, Hinrichs stops for 
a picture. In Ghana, Hinrichs gained many new perspectives of race and culture. ■

Being a sociology major, one of the first things I 
noticed about Ghanian society is that there was not a 
recognizable middle class. There were distinct upper and lower 
classes but not many people who fell in between. There was 
also not as much of a preoccupation with material success. 
Most people that we came across were content with where 
they were in life, and took much pride in their work. 

It was not long before I noticed something else that I 
found strange. The local people would commonly refer to me 
as "white lady." While the title did not really bother me, I had 
never been singled out before because of my race. It was very 
strange for me to stick out because I was white. Most people 
seemed to automatically assume that I was rich simply because 
of my color. I guess I got a small taste of what it feels like to be 
a minority, an experience that taught me a great deal. 

This trip was an excellent learning experience that 
taught me more than I ever have learned in a classroom. I met 
so many great people in Ghana. It was hard to believe that 
learning could be so much fun. It was definitely an experience 
that I will remember forever. ■

&L, stt&t^*-*^ ■ufca^Cs 

By the time my plane landed back in Washington, D.C. 
in July, I felt as if I had left my home in Australia to simply 
visit Virginia. But as I turned onto my old street and walked 
into my house it felt so normal that it was strange. It was only 
then that the past six months began to register and come into 
perspective. It was hard to realize that it was over, that I had 
just returned from the most amazing and rewarding experience 
of my life thus far. I felt like I had been gone forever and like I 
had never left at the same time. It all seemed like a dream. 

I went to the University of Canberra, (pronounced 
can-bra) located in a suburb of the Australian capital, Canberra. 
The school, or "uni," had about 10,000 students, but only 1,000 
lived on campus. The others were commuters who lived at 
home. I lived in a campus house with four Australians and 
four other international students, who quickly became my 
family. There were kangaroos outside my window and not a 
Foster's Lager in sight. Every Thursday was Uni Bar Night. 
The bar on campus stayed open until three in the morning and 
everyone went. I only took three courses, giving me four-day 
weekends. In the first half of the semester, my friends and I 
traveled around the country nearly every weekend and to New 
Zealand for our two-week "fall" break in April. In the second 
half I hardly left on the weekend, truly making UC and IH4 
my home. After the semester ended I stayed in the South Pacific 
for two months, backpacking from place to place. 

In my travels before, during, and after the semester I 
did some amazing things and saw places I thought could never 
actually exist. My first day in Australia I dove on the Great 
Barrier Reef and on my last night I saw an opera in the Sydney 
Opera House. I held koala bears, skydived, fought off dingos 
while camping, and sailed. In New Zealand I went on a four- 
day hike through the mountains, stretching over 40 miles. I 
slept in cars, trains, ferries, airports, casinos, and train station 
benches. I treasure every one of those experiences, no matter 
how crazy, wonderful, or horrible they were. It was not always 
easy. I left everything and everyone familiar to go to the other 
side of the world for a half a year. While I was gone I was 
forced to face many issues and deal with situations I often was 
not prepared for. But that made it all the more wonderful and 

What really made everything so memorable was not 
the place; it was the people I shared it with the people I met

has become one of the most recognized buildings worldwide.! Photo by Morgan Riehl 

really made my time abroad unique. Aside from those that I 
went to school with, there were some that I knew only for a 
week as we shared a hostel room, for three days on an island 
adventure, or simply an evening on an overnight bus ride. 
Among them were Israeli Army veterans, a group of Brits 
making a round-the-world trip, sisters from Norway, a French 
winemaker, and a restaurant owner from Northern Ireland. I 
learned from them about other places and other lives and realized 
how similar we all are. It did not matter where I was or if I was 
with a complete stranger. Even with all the things that made us 
different, there was so much that we held in common. We shared 
an adventure, only to continue our separate ways and eventually 
make it back to our old lives. We knew we would never meet 
again, but it did not matter. The people became as immovable 
as the location; they became pan of the scenery, creating just as 
much of an impact and being just as memorable. 

I could never encourage someone enough to go abroad 
and simply travel in general. The hardest part was taking the 
first step. After that, everything fell into place. I would have 
never thought this is how my college years would have panned 
out when I arrived at the university three years ago. But I cannot 
imagine my life without those six months being part of it. Even- 
person, even* place, and even' day taught me more about myself 
and the world than I could have ever dreamed of or hoped for.» 





&y a&i 




Three thoughts: What have I done? Man I am tired. 
And whoa, this suitcase is heavy. Welcome to London's 
summer program. Initially I was also struck by how simple 
it is to enter a foreign land while it is such a hassle to reenter 
America. These thoughts were going through my head as I 
stood in London Heathrow International airport on the first 
da}" of my six-week stud}- abroad program. 

We took a bus back to our new home, the "Mad 
House." This was the pan of the London program that made 
it unique. Students did not live with separated host families 
but together on 49 Gower Street. The house was run by 
Jon and Gina Glassman, former participants in the London 
study abroad program. The lack of culture shock was what 
was interesting here. Evemhing seemed shockingly familiar. 
We had a quick orientation and nap time. Then we broke 
into groups to explore. Well, explore is not the word; get 
lost is more like it. We walked through Covent Gardens, 
crossed the Waterloo Bridge and walked down the Thames 
to the Globe. It was at this moment that it all became real, 
we were in London, and we got to stay for six weeks. 

I took three classes while in London: An History, 
Political Science, and Shakespeare. Each class was attended 
once a week with Shakespeare meeting twice. Each course 
also included a weekly outing. The outings for my an class 
were amazing. Even - week we attended a different museum 
where our professor lectured for a bit on several pieces of 
an. Often others in the program would come along to see 
the art and hear her stories. We were frequently shadowed 
by museum-goers who became interested in what she was 

The Shakespeare class was rewarding for a number 
of reasons. The simple experience of attending class twice a 
week at the Globe Theatre was mind-boggling. It wasn't 
the original Globe but the reconstruction was amazing. The 
level of authenticity that permeated through evemhing 
there was remarkable. No materials were used in the 
construction of the Globe that would not have been available 
is Shakespeare's day. This level of reproduction extended 
to other realms as well. Everything down to the costumes 

used in productions and the instruments that the musicians 
plaved was given the same level of attention. Our teacher, 
Patrick Spottiswood, arranged for us to meet with the 
coordinators of all these programs to really how costumes 
could be made without synthetic materials or machine 
stitching. The one exception that the master of costume 
mentioned was that the modern actors were given rubber- 
soled shoes because they couldn't figure out how the original 
actors walked on that stage without slipping in leather shoes. 

In addition to the outings and shows that were 
mandatorv for our classes there were mandator}- program 
outings. For instance, all of us went to one play per week 
and also on music outings. We took two trips with the 
program all together, a day trip to Brighton and a weekend 
in Bath. The day in Brighton was one of my favorite 
memories of London. Two students decided to go 
swimming, and it couldn't have been much over 50 degrees 
out. The weekend in Bath was also great; it's a fascinating 
little town. The hotel there was small, which led to packed 
rooms. The best accomodations by far was "the orphanage" 
where four other girls and I stayed; five girls in five little 
beds with five matching comforters. I know the Madeline 
books will never seem the same again! 

I miss it all, along with everyone who was there. 
One summer, six weeks, it changed evemhing for all of 
us. It was an experience I will never forget. ■

offered training in unconventional sports 
gave students an alternative to the 
monotony of labs and lectures 

Most students did not expect their classes to involve 
jumping oft buildings, deep sea diving, or kicking over a punching 
bag. But many students were pleasantly surprised. The university 
offered numerous classes that were physically demanding and 
allowed students to learn unusual skills and take a welcome break 
from the usual drone of lectures in many academic classes. 

One class offered was Military Science Leadership Lab 
(MSCI 100). As part oftheROTC program, MSCI 100 enabled 
students to learn valuable military skills, whether thev were 
planning to enter the military or were simply interested in gaining 
some self-defense skills. The class had no required prerequisite, 
so any student was able to take it. 

The Kinesiology department also provided yarious one- 
credit classes that each focused on a different physical activity. 
These classes ranged from kickboxing to scuba diving. Students 
who enroll in these classes not only learned valuable skills, but 
also kept their schedules interesting. 

MSCI 100 was a very unusual and unique experience 
for all students who were involved. It taught students practical 
skills and allowed them to them to utilize these skills by partaking 
in various outdoor activities. (Continued on p.91)

which gave students valuable leadership experience. 

The most exciting part of MSCI 1 00 lor many students 
was rappelling off the walls of Eagle Hall. Before actually 
rappelling, the class took about an hour preparing for the 
challenge. The students marched over in orderly fashion dressed 
in army fatigues and gathered around the instructor for further 
direction. The students then helped tie ropes around each other 
that would allow them to be attached to the main rope on the 
building, and rappelled down the wall once all the safety measures 
were in place. Sophomore Tazzie Howard admitted that 
rappelling off the wall gave her an immense boost of confidence. 
"It made me face something I was uncomfortable with and realize 
that it wasn't so bad after all." Junior Danni Pauly took the class 
just so she could learn to rappel. "It was something different 
that I thought I would never do in college." 

Senior Dan Hodermarsky, ROTC cadet commander, 
explained that MSCI 100 was a great opportunity because it 
gave people a chance to train for the army and have a lot of fun 
as well. "It gives people an opportunity to see what the military 
is really like," he said. Squad leader sophomore Mark Ehlers felt 
that the class provided him with valuable experience. "I think 
the best thing I got out of the class was learning about leadership 
hands on," he said. "I have to make sure that all my people know 
what they are doing and why, so it is a good tool for teaching 
leadership," he added. Ehlers also liked the class because it was 
the only class "that you can get an A for jumping off a building. 
But, the most important thing was that it gave everyone who 
took it practical leadership experience, which is probably one of 
the most important skills out there, whether you are going into 
the militarv or not." 

The Kinesiology department offered a number of basic 
instruction courses that focused on specific skills. The courses 
were cosponsored by the Kinesiology department and UREC. 
Each class was only one credit and lasted eight weeks. The classes 
met once a week at various locations, depending on what activity 
was planned. Over 20 classes were offered each semester ranging 
from scuba diving to river canoeing to self defense for women. 
The classes were taught by part-time instructors, most who had 
local businesses relating to the course they taught. (Continued onp.93)

(Cont.fromp.9l) Kathv Clancy trained students to be scuba divers. 
or at least introduced them to the world of scuba diving. The 
course consisted of some classroom time learning terminology 
and the physics of the scuba equipment. The rest of the course 
was spent in the pool at UREC, where students were trained 
how to use the underwater equipment and practiced diving. The 
class allowed them to become certified scuba divers if they wished. 
Clancy explained that she enjoved teaching the class because it 
gave her the, "pleasure of turning people on to the underwater world." 

Tim Richardson, the mountain cycling instructor, also 
felt it was extremely gratifying to watch his students successfully 
achieve what they had trained tor. He explained how kinesiology 
courses were an asset to higher education. "[Kinesiology courses] 
give students structure and keep them relaxed so they can be 
more focused on academically challenging courses," he said. 

These physically demanding classes provided a pleasant 
alternative to academic classes and gave students a break in their 
week to relieve the stress that college life often brought. By taking 
these alternative classes, students found unique opportunities to 
do things thev never thought they would, while having a lot of 
fun and learning new and useful skills. ■

With every event there must be an emcee, 
and Circles was proud to present Shabazz,

store for them. ■ Photo by Rachel O'Donnell 

Walking into the Godwin gym on March 29, 
2002, an intense energy almost radiated from the walls. A 
stage with turn-tables and huge speakers was being set 
up, sound-checks were taking place, and loud, pulsating 
music made your heart beat to the rhythm. All around 
the gym, people were spinning on their heads, their backs, 
their arms, practicing breakdancing to the music and 
cheering each other on. One guy jumped up and started 
to break, dancing faster and faster as he built up his energy. 
Then, another guy jumped up and started to do moves 
that out-did the other, and they kept this up, trying to 
beat each other at their own game. The crowd cheered 
enthusiastically, and fellow breakdancers gathered around 
the two, yelling and dancing around with excitement. The 
Circles III breakdancing competition had not even begun 
yet, but in the minds or these enthusiastic hip-hoppers, it 
was already underway. 

Circles III was the third annual breakdancing 
and emcee competition, hosted by the Breakdance Club. 
Breakdance crews came from all over to (continued on p. 96)

to win the S 1 ,000 first prize. It was emceed by Shabazz of 
the Wutang and Grave Diggaz, with Marlon from 
Havikoro and Tony Bonz from Step Fiendz judging. The 
Lions of Zion breakdancing crew won for the third year 
in a row. 

The energy at Circles III was enhanced by the 
extreme competition between the crews. Breakdance Club 
member, graduate student Brian Wilcox, described one 
battle in which "the judge said the group BOCA won, 
but there was a huge disagreement and so they just kept 
on battling each other in a side circle. This made almost 
the entire audience come around the small circle; there 
was a lot of tension between the two crews and a fight 
almost broke out." 

Breakdance club president, senior Devin Beasley 
was proud of Circles 2001, having participated in the 
battle himself as well as planning the event. He said, "there 
was awesome energy from everyone who was there. The 
crowd elevated the energy so much." He hoped that Circles 
helped "the community respect the many aspects of hip- 
hop," as well as become more familiar with the club. All 
proceeds from Circles III went to the Boys and Girls Club 
of Harrisonburg. 

The Breakdance Club was a relatively new 
organization at the university, founded by Kevork

"guys and girls gettin' together to work on some floor

website also said they'd "be sweatin' to the new and old

turning them intojedi flair-kickin' fools." The group tried 
to keep the ideal of finding good vibes through fitness, 
music, and wherever else it could be found. 

In addition to overseeing Circles and holding 
practices twice a week, the Breakdance Club also served 
the Harrisonburg community. Wilcox said that the club 
taught kids at the Mercy House homeless shelter how to 
breakdance. "We also went to local youth groups and did 
similar activities, stressing the importance of staying in 
school and getting a good education," he added. The 
breakdancers put the same energy into serving the 
community as they put into their dancing. ■

I • I I 

Students gathered on October seventh at Wilson Hall 
and tilled the auditorium to hear two experts express their 
opinions on the "Great Debate:" the legalization of marijuana. 
The "Heads vs. Feds" debate began with moderator 
Communications Professor Pete Bsumek introducing the two 
panelists. Bsumek explained the topic of the debate and defined 
the expected atmosphere. The two panelists were Steve Hagar, 
the editor-in-chief of High Times magazine, on the side of the 
"heads;" and former Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agent 
Robert Stutman, on the side of the "feds." 

The format of the debate consisted of each panelist 
speaking for 12 to 15 minutes and then opening the floor for 
questions from the audience for 45 minutes. The debate, which 
was sponsored by the University Program Board, attracted 
hundreds of students who formed a line across the Quad an hour 
before the debate started. Students flocked to the debate to witness 
the two marijuana experts with opposite views, and to educate 
themselves about marijuana, a substance long connected with 
college life. Hager and Stutman often debate each other, especially 
at colleges. Although they have completely opposite views on 
marijuana legalization, they respect each other and are actually 
good friends. 

Hagar, representing the "heads" position, was a well- 
respected marijuana expert, as well as editor-in-chief of High 
Times Magazine. In the debate, Hagar listed and described five 
main reasons why he felt marijuana should be legalized. First, he 
pointed out that the marijuana flower can be a (Continued on p. 100) 

heads vs. feds 


Itheg rea tdebatel 

(cont.fromp.99) good medicine to treat diseases and medical disorders. It will not cure 
diseases, but can help a great deal. He argued that the health system ignored the medical 
benefits of marijuana while giving kids toxic addictive drugs such as Prozac, Paxil and 
Ritalin, making a profit for the health industry and pharmaceutical companies. Therefore, 
Hagar felt that the health companies did not want to patent marijuana as a medicine 
because it would interrupt the flow of profit that currently legal drugs generate. 

Secondly, Hagar explained that the stock and seeds of marijuana can be used to 
make 50,000 different consumer items such as clothes and paper. Hemp paper can be 
made naturally and does not kill trees, unlike current paper mills which destroy forests 
and pollute the air. 

Hagar felt that making marijuana illegal added to the corruption of the United 
States' prison system, the largest in the world. Hagar stated that "400,000 people are sent 
to prison because of marijuana and more people are arrested for marijuana than for any 
other crime." Hagar also pointed out that if marijuana were legal, there would not be so 
much corruption in the war on drugs. Marijuana would not be as expensive and would 
not lead to as much violence as it does today. Lastly, Hagar appealed to his belief that 
cannabis was significant in his culture and spirituality. "Cannabis is part of the culture. It 
is our sacrament and we are never going to give it up," Hagar asserted. 

Stutman then stepped up to the microphone and gave his opposing argument 
on why marijuana should continue to be an illegal substance. Stutman, a former member 
of the DEA, based his argument on medical facts rather than personal beliefs. He first 
argued that although marijuana could be an effective medicine for a few people, it would 
never be good for all people. Stutman said that according to the American Medical 
Association, marijuana is five times as carcinogenic as tobacco. Just because marijuana is 
natural does not make it good, Stutman stated. He provided the audience with facts to 
show how marijuana is dangerous to one's health. Stutman said that "marijuana does, in 
fact, cause dependence, and teenagers use marijuana more than any other drug." Marijuana 
also causes cancers of the mouth, throat and lung. In response to Hagar's argument that 
marijuana can treat AIDS patients, Stutman argued that "marijuana use actually doubled 
the speed of death of AIDS patients." Lastly, Stutman argued that there would be far 
more users of marijuana if it were legalized. He suggested that marijuana use was also 
hazardous because, like alcohol, it decreases depth perception and lessens pressure on 
optic nerves, which leads to the danger of driving while smoking. 

After each panelist made their opening statement, students were allowed to 
come up to the microphone and pose questions. The majority of the audience sided with 
Hagar and favored the legalization of marijuana. The debate became heated at times but 
was never out of control. Freshman Valerie Mahr said, "Steve [Hagar] presented a lot of 
credible information, but I hated how [Stutman] began with 'you'll never hear us 
personally attack each other' yet he followed with degrading, demeaning remarks towards 
[Hagar] in order to kill his credibility." 

Others felt that Stutman made a more convincing argument. Freshman Justin 
Knighten said that, "both sides made good arguments, however the 'head' tended to use 
more opinions than facts." Most students felt that both panelists made valid points and 
made the debate a worthwhile event. ■

the twice weekly paper 

"blew" students and 

faculty away 

Running a nationally recognized college newspaper was 
no easy task. But, twice a week the Breeze staff worked hard to 
uphold the reputation they had created for themselves. All their 
energy was poured into a publication that won the Mark of 
Excellence (MOE) award from the Society of Professional 
Journalists for two consecutive years. The award recognized the 
best non-daily college newspaper in the country. Perhaps just as 
rewarding was the knowledge ol the student body's anticipation 
of receiving the latest issue. On the days that The Breeze was 
distributed, it was a common sight to find scores of students 
reading the paper, whether on buses, in the dining halls, or 
in classrooms. 

With a circulation of 1 0,000 and a readership of 22,000, 
the Breeze found great support Irom the college community. 
According to a 2002 survey conducted bv the university's Center 
for Entrepreneurship, over 93 percent or students read The Breeze 
at least once a month. Also, more than 38 percent read even- 
issue of The Breeze, the survey stated. 

Working for the Breeze gave students a feeling of 
purpose and also practical experience. Clingenpeel initially 
considered dropping out or college after his freshman year, as he 
round was his classes uninteresting. The following summer it 
occurred to him to try his hand at sports writing, combining his 
love of sports and his abilities as a writer. "The first day or classes 
sophomore vear, I went down and took a storv lor the sports 
section and I haven't been able to escape from Anthonv-Seeger's 
basement since then." Clingenpeel successfully applied for the 
Assistant Sports Editor position the following Spring, before 
advancing to Sports Editor the year after that, and then as 
Managing Editor this past vear. "To spend the kind of hours 
down there that we do, you have to love it," Clingenpeel said. 
"That's the only way you'd be able to make the kind of sacrifices 
that all the editors make." 

Toiling away hours on end in such close quarters, it 
was not unexpected that The Breeze staff would form close bonds 
with one another. "I love the Breeze staff. While the office is a 
professional environment and everybody respects the hierarchy 
of authority, outside the office we can be friends," said Editor- 
in-Chief Jeanine Gajewski "We love playing jokes on each other.

revisions was a critical

but at the same time, when there is work to be done, it gets 
done." The close connections were not disrupted even when 
staffers inevitably graduated from the university. Gajewski added, 
"I still keep in touch with several of the people from last year's 
staff who have graduated and are now at grad school or working. 
An added bonus is that previous staff members form a network 
through which we learn about job and internship opportunities." 

Junior Drew Wilson also formed a tight kinship with 
his fellow staff during his time at The Breeze. "The people I 
work with have become like a second family to me," he said, "It 
makes tor a great working environment." 

As the seemingly endless production of The Breeze 
dominated the lives of its editors, they in turn developed strong 
feelings about their creation. "Once you're on staff, it really can 
consume a lot of vour life, but I don't regret it," said news editor 
Khalil Garriott. "We put out such a high quality product on 
\ londays and Thursdays that it's definitely worth it. Newspaper 
journalism is what I want to do after college, so I love what I 

For Gajewski, managing The Breeze was "like running 
a small business, from controlling conflicts, to evaluating the 
budget, to keeping staff morale high. Our writers and 
photographers win awards and honors even' year, and I am proud 
to be associated with a nationally award-winning publication." 
Summing up her experience, Gajewski added, "While it is easy 
to dwell on mistakes and worn 1 about what we should have done 
or could have done better, I always remind myself that I am 
luckv to be a part of such an excellent publication."!

Glen's Celebrates 
50th Anniversary 

The first issue of Curio, a student-produced, community 
feature magazine, was published in 1978. Twenty-five years later, 
the publication had first-place finishes for overall excellence in 
three different national college press competitions including one 
sponsored bv the Society of Professional Journalists. 

Dr. David Wendelken, SMAD professor and adviser to 
Curio, said the publication was created as a special project in his 
feature writing class for two main reasons. "First, my students were 
writing some really good features about the community but thev 
couldn't get them published in the student newspaper. Second, 
another campus publication would give more students a chance to 
be in charge of a major project and develop their leadership skills." 

With an inexpensive 32-page first issue that sold enough 
ads to pay for printing costs, copies of Curio were given away on 
campus. Wendelken decided to incorporate Curio as part of a 
regularly offered class in 1979. The class, called Feature Magazine 
Production, was offered to SMAD majors. From 1979 to 1983, 
Curio came out twice a year and was published annually since then. 

The production of Curio was in no way an easy task. 
With the start of each class in the spring, students looked for 
feature ideas on history, religion, animals, volunteerism, travel, 
dining, and local or regional personalities. Students then narrowed 
down their ideas to a dozen or so with the most promise. 

"During its early years Curio was funded entirely from ad 
sales and single copy sales," Wendelken explained. "By our second 
year we were on newsstands in five counties and had very strong 
sales. In our third year we sold almost 3,000 copies, which was 
truly amazing." 

When ad sales and distribution began to take too much 
effort. Curio workers began to look for other sources of income for 


the publication. They found funding through support from the 
School of Media Arts and Design as well as the distribution of 
Madison 101 in cooperation with The Breeze. Equipment 
purchases were funded with donations from alumni and others. 

Curio was distributed to all (acuity members and 
administrators, and offered in several stores and libraries in the 
surrounding areas, geared mainly toward adult readers in the central 
Shenendoah Valley. "For the students it's a chance to showcase their 
talents and produce a professional quality magazine tor their 
portfolios," remarked Wendelken. "More than that, it's a celebration 
of community, a way to capture the people and places that represent 
a cross-section of the values of rural living. 

Wendelken stressed the benefits of Curio being produced 
as part of a class. "One of the nice things about Curio is that it gives 
the students time to plan," Wendelken said. "With the newspaper 
there's often little time for planning and revision because of the 
pressure of regular deadlines. I tell the students that this is one of 
the tew instances when thev will have the time to produce their very 
best work. 

"I've been fortunate to have a lot of great students who are 
truly committed to quality work," Wendelken remarked. " It seems 
as if each staff wants to do better than the previous staff and that 
can be quite a challenge."!

cab drivers 

provide their 

opinion of 

student life 

Driver Holly Mitchell

Harrisonburg, Virginia. 
■ Photo by Morgan Riehl 

Aiter eight years of experience with Yellow Cab in 
Harrisonburg, Musa Sved has learned a thing or two about the 
students at this university. On a cold and clear night I met with 
Syed and his friend Holly Mitchell, a driver of two years, for an 
interview. Through our conversation, I learned a few bits of 
information about my fellow Dukes: we are creative and 
appreciative, we have tun and we like to talk, but most of all we 
are young and we are generous. 

The majority of Yellow Cab's business resulted from 
university students. On the busiest days, Thursday through 
Saturday, more than 95 percent of business was from students. 
It worked out well, according to Syed and Mitchell. "All the cab 
drivers like to pick up students over locals because it's more tun. 
they said. Not only were students entertaining, they were friendly 
and they tipped better as well. Syed enjoyed seeing the same 
students over their four-year stay in college, during which time he 
got to know them pretty well. Said Syed, "What helps me a lot is 
that I have been driving tor eight years. Everyone knows me, and 
they come back after four years and ask about me. It's kind ot 
emotional for me when they leave." 

As cabdrivers, both Syed and Mitchell learned that not 
everything they encountered was included in their contracts. For 
example, on more than one occasion they broadened their work 
experience to that of psychiatrist, doctor and friend. "They ask 
advice about dates, boys, sex, alcohol, anything that can be asked, 
we've heard it," said Mitchell. Syed said, "It's a very good i 
atmosphere, with friendly students who have lots to say. They 
talk about everything: life, school, dates, everything." Students 
were also ready to voice opinions on music preferences. "They 
say, 'we're not old folks, let's change the music, " Mitchell said. 

Since Syed and Mitchell were in contact with students 
so much, they had a handle on what was going on as far as night 
lite. "We know about the frats and can answer questions people 
have about them. We also know when thev and other people are 
having parties. Sometimes students will call the cab company to 
find out where the parties are," said Syed. 

Almost synonymous with taxicabs were tunny stories 
and interesting people. The Syed-Mitchell experience was no 
different. "Last year an IAE (Sigma Alpha Epsilon) member 
called to ask for a ride to his house next door because it was 'too 

1 06 features 

cold' and he didn't want to walk," said Mitchell. "The most 
anusual call I had was from someone who wanted me to come 
sick up a key and deliver it to someone who had gotten locked 
jut of their car", said Mitchell, who had never played the part of 
:ourier before. Even though Yellow Cab services was exclusive to 
Harrisonburg and local areas, Mitchell once received a call from 
H former passenger, all the way from the state or Delaware. " I he 
itudent said he was at a bar and his ride hadn't shown up. He 
wanted to know if I would come pick him up and take him to 
the next bar. His view was, 'it's only five hours away, she said. 

Both drivers were enthusiastic when asked how they 
liked their job. "It's the most interesting job because you never 
know what's going to happen. It's never the same thing twice, 
said Mitchell. In addition, Mitchell said, "I like the fact that [the 
students] are so young. The fact that we are constantly around 
[them] makes us feel young again." 

They also expressed some feelings of protectiveness. 
"When you pick them up they don't forget you no matter what, 
even it they are intoxicated. They know that when thev are with 
you it will be okay," she said. The students were also very 
appreciative of the cab service. "They are giving us business, but 
they are still thankful for the service we provide," Syed added. 
Just as the students were loval to their cab service and cab drivers, 
so were those who provided that service. "I won't drive anywhere 

else but Yellow Cab at JMU," said Syed. ■

from classes to buying books to J 

hanging out, new improvements on 
campus were made left and right 


When students returned to campus this hill, it wasn't 
just the leaves that were changing. Two new buildings, the Studio 
Center for The School of Art and Art History and the new 
bookstore had sprung up over the summer. As well as a new 
student hang out called [Mads, located in the College Center. 
The new additions added to the ever-changing facade of campus. 

Many people living on the east side of campus felt far 
removed from the rest of the school. The addition of JMads, a 
sports-focused student leisure space, to the College Center helped 
to alleviate some of those feelings. JMads featured pool tables, 
foosbaJl, electronic darts, a big screen television with Playstation 
2, satellite sports network on multiple televisions, computers with 
internet access and many comfortable chairs and beanbags. 

"JMads was created tor several reasons," said Derek Dye, 
director of College Center. First, "to make effective use of existing 
space that was not being used," and secondly, "to provide leisure/ 
recreational type space for students, primarily those on the east 
side of campus." 

Although still a work in progress, JMads received 
much positive feedback from students. "JMads is great because 
unlike Taylor Down Under, there are tree pool tables," said 
freshman Steve Burden. "It gives me something to do besides 
labs." Freshman Chris Ryan added "The big screen TV and purple 
beanbag chairs are sweet." (Continued on p.lW)

(Cont.fromp.W9) "This is a good change," said senior Lina

Junior Rachel Jacobs agreed, "It definitely adds something to 
this side of campus." 

On the opposite side of campus, across South Main 
Street sat The Studio Center, the new building for the School of 
Art and Art Historv. "A new building was very necessary," said 
Director and Professor of Art, Dr. Cole Welter. "We basically 
didn't have one up until this vear as all our facilities were scattered 
around campus. The facilities we did have were unsafe, unheal thy, 
not of good size for the students, provided no natural lighting, 
and oftentimes were hard to get to around campus." 

These problems were all resolved with the completion 
of the Studio Center. The structure was originally an old 1940s 
warehouse used commerciallv. The university leased the building 
for ten years and renovated it to create the new haven for art 
students. "This is actually just an interim solution for the next 
ten years until we can get the proper funding for a completely 

new building," said Dr. Welter. 

Despite some drawbacks, such as being located off 
campus, the Center received mostlv positive feedback. "The new 
art center is great because its always open to students and provides 
the perfect environment to get things done," said sophomore 
Emily Vuono. "The change from the old facilities to now is like 
night and day," commented Dr. Welter. "Now we have one 
building designed totallv to meet our needs and all of the majors 
can be together instead of scattered across campus. Students learn 
from students, so it improves social and educational needs." 

One of the biggest additions to campus was the 
construction of the new bookstore. Located in front of Godwin 
Hall, the bookstore occupied a centralized location that made it 
accessible to students from both sides of campus. "The whole 
reason for building this bookstore was reallv to keep everything 
under one roof. Before, during book rush, we had to occupv PC 
Ballroom just to fit everything in. Now, we are able to do it all in 
one building," said bookstore director John Rheault. "The old 
bookstore was 5,000 square feet whereas the new bookstore is

28,000 square feet. Obviously, this provides us with much more 
;pace, allowing us to offer everything to the community, not 
ust the basics." 

The new bookstore featured two levels. The first floor 
was filled with a wide selection of clothing and gifts, as well as 
an extended selection of magazines and music. The second floor 
held textbooks, school supplies and computers. A study alcove 
was on the second floor as well, complete with internet-readv 
hookups. "\\ ith all the extra room, we will be able to keep 
books in stock longer as well as cross-merchandise, which was 
never possible in the old bookstore," said John Rheault. 

Metered parking spaces in front of the bookstore made 
it possible for commuters to park close and get in and out 
quickly. "Many off-campus students told us that they bought 
their books more from the Outpost bookstore just because the 
bookstore on campus was so inaccessible," said Rheault. 
"Hopefully, these metered parking spaces should alleviate that." 
These additions to campus helped the university 
provide for the growing student bodv in new and better ways. ■

They were strong and athletic, yet graceful and agile. Their 
prowess and skill delighted spectators, but they were more than 
willing to instruct others in the ways of their craft. The men and 
women of the Swing Dance Club loved what they did, and the 
commitment they had for their sport helped interest in the club 
soar with an influx of new members. 

The Swing Dance Club originally began in the mid- 
1 990s, but fell apart when the founders graduated. It was revived 
again in Fall 2000 when alumnus Scott Kelly taught others, 
including the current club officers, the ins and outs of swing 
dancing.The club met twice a week for a beginner lesson and 
once a week tor the smaller advanced group. Lessons took place 
in the Festival and lasted several hours. A review of the prior 
week's dance lesson always took place half an hour before the 
official meeting time. The sessions proved invaluable for those 
who either missed the last lesson or needed some fine-tuning of 
their dance steps. Upon the conclusion of the regular meetings, 
there was an open dance period where students could stay and 
continue to work with the instructors on the moves thev had 
just learned. The friendly swing dance instructors were helpful 
and eager to teach their enthusiastic students. 

Club president Jessica Simpson cited the many benefits 
to joining the group and experiencing swing. (Continued on p. 11 4)

hopping, is a great way to meet great people and have fun." 
Simpson also found personal fulfillment in her years with the 
Swing Club. "I love to dance so much that my non-dance friends 
never see me. The people that I meet dancing all have something 
I love as a common interest and I've met people with extremely 
different backgrounds who have all come to love lindy hop." 

Swing dance instructor and club secretary junior Brittany 
Holbrook started swing her freshman year and became 
immediately hooked. "Swing Dance Club is a very positive setting 
for students interested in learning to swing dance," she said. "The 
kids involved with swing are super-friendly and always eager to 
welcome fellow students into the group." For Holbrook, swing 
was a welcome distraction from the demanding rigors of college 
life. "Swing dancing is my escape from the stress and strain of 
the college semester!" she said. "I love coming to Swing Club 
because I know I will always have a good time. There is constant 
laughing and goofing off." Holbrook added, "I can work off 
any steam or distress by getting out on the dance floor for just a 
few dances."

Club dance instructor junior Erik Harper also had a deep 
>assion for swing dance that developed when he gave the group 
i try his freshman year. Describing the meaning that swing dance 
tad for him, Harper said, "It is a way for me to get exercise, 
naintain my social life, and to just have the most fun. No other 
ictivitv I've done can even compare with swing dancing in terms 
)f fun and fulfillment in my life." Harper concluded, "It has 
lefinitely shaped me as a person and changed me significantly." 

Holbrook and Harper's devotion to swing went beyond 
he club as they teamed up together in various shows and 
lemonstrations. "Brittany and I have been official partners since 
ibout the beginning of last year," Harper said. "Since freshman 
'ear we have done exhibitions in different places like her sister's 
:lementary school, and a variety show called "Fairfax Follies' 
ut on annually by Lord Fairfax Community College. Harper 
idded, "I hope to travel all around the country and dance after 

According to Holbrook, the club attempted to make trips 
it least twice a month to Washington D.C. or Charlottesville in 
srder to observe and take part in swing dances. In addition, the 

members made a trip on October 4, to the Ballroom in Chew 
Chase, Maryland. There, they had the opportunity- to dance to 
the sounds or The Artie Shaw Band. "This band is awesome and 
Chew Chase has the best dance floor around," Holbrook said. 

Aside from excursions off campus to go swing dancing, 
the club also hosted its very own dance on November 8 in the 
PC Ballroom. It was a chance for the members to demonstrate 
the culmination of their hard work and practice over the course 
of the semester. Holbrook called it a "great opportunity to mingle 
with people from all over the Valley." 

Of the swing dance members, Holbrook said, "Our club 
has a wide variety of students with a broad range of interests. 
That makes it so easy to fit in and feel at home." One of many 
new members this past year was freshman Patti Birdsong. "I was 
looking through the "Things To Do AtJMU guide and saw the 
Swing Dance Club," she said. "It was something I alwavs wanted 
to do so I decided to go out tor it." Junior Laura Anderson was 
also very enthusiastic about the club. "I came out because I take 
a folk dance class and so naturally I thought Id trv swing," she 
said. "I love swing and I just want to have fun here." ■

Being the new kid at school is tough. Sometimes it is 
bard to find a place to fit in. As a new club on campus, the 
Association for Women in Communication (AWC) struggled to 
find its place in the college community during its first year. AWC, 
formally accepted in February 2002, found its niche among 
majors in the School of Media Arts and Design (SMAD), 
Communication Studies (SCOM) and Marketing. 

AWC emerged as a college branch of a large national 
organization whose mission was to "champion the advancement 
of women across all communications disciplines by recognizing 
excellence, promoting leadership and positioning its members 
at the forefront of the evolving communications era," according 
to their website at 

According to the national website, the goals of AWC were 
o promote the advancement of women in all fields of 
ommunication, work for their first amendment rights, recognize 
[distinguished professional achievements and promote high 

professional standards through communication. 

AWC was founded in 1909 at the University of 
Washington as a women's journalism fraternity, Theta Sigma Phi. 
It evolved from a fraternity into a communication network with 
7,500 members ranging from the ages of 18 to 90, and more 
than 60 chapters nationwide. 

In a school surrounded by business fraternities, 
psychology and pre-law clubs, AWC was the first club geared 
toward students in the fields of communication. "We all saw the 
market niche in the school since we were without a professionally 
focused group," said senior Vice President Rachael Pierson. "In 
a field where communication and networking is the key principle, 
we needed something to take us the extra step." 

SMAD professor Dr. Joanne Holman initiated the idea 
of forming a chapter at this university. "She was the advisor for 
Purdue's AWC and thought a chapter would be successful here," 
said president, senior Ashley Walkley. (Continued onp.l 18)

(Cont.fromp.117)The organization had to work hard to be accepted 
by the national chapter in order to become an official branch of 
the AWC. "Bringing this organization to fulfill the national 
requirements and standards is quite a task, we were always trying 
to catch up with something," said Pierson. 

The group started with eight founding members and an 
advisor. Then they began to advertise through fliers and word of 
mouth in their classes. "There are so many organizations on 
campus and so many events going on each week, its hard to 
convince students that our meetings and programs are the ones 
they should attend," said secretary, senior Jennifer Valle. 
"However we had some really great speakers and workshops with 
good attendance." 

In its first year, AWC did well for itself, having followed 
the principles of the organization and worked hard to accomplish 
its goals. They held lectures such as "Top Five to Survive" and 
hosted panels of SMAD, SCOM, and Marketing professors. 
According to Walkley, the chapter also encouraged participation 
in career fairs, mock interviews, resume-building activities and 

internship clinics. "We also worked with the First Amendment 
Center in Nashville, Tennessee, and Laubach Literacy on literacy 
enhancement programs," said Pierson. 

Since most students did not get into SMAD or SCOM 
until their sophomore year, the group greatly consisted of third 
and fourth year students. "But we would like to see more 
involvement from first and second year students," said Walkley. 

The first Monday of each month, members met for club 
events such as resume workshops and lectures. Club meetings 
were also held every third Monday of the month to take care of 
business issues. Newsletters were circulated to keep members 
informed of upcoming events sponsored bv AWC or other events 
members may have found interesting. 

While the AWC was mostly directed towards students 
majoring in the communication field, Walkley promised that 
"everyone could benefit from many or the programs we sponsor." 
With such a successful start, AWC seemed to have a bright future. 
"We hope to build up our membership and soon make this one 
of the most active organizations on campus." Valle said. ■

a community 

improving the relationship jj # J 
between students and the ^1 I I f% *i *f* 
Harrisonburg community aAia11 

The newly-created SGA community affairs 
committee was dedicated to improving the relationship between 
members of the university community and the Harrisonburg 
community. The committee was formed two years ago by Chris 
Fortier because he recognized the need for a better student- 
community relationship and thought the SGA would be the best 
place to start. 

The committee worked hard to come up with new- 
ideas that would strengthen the relationship between the students 
and the Harrisonburg residents. The mission statement was to 
strengthen the Harrisonburg and university relationship, by 
opening the lines of communication and develop a working 
relationship with city officials. 

Sophomore Jenny Brockwell, chairman of the 
community affairs committee, worked especially hard to increase 
students' interactions with Harrisonburg residents. "I care a lot 
about communities and the JMU and Harrisonburg 
relationship," she explained. Brockwell devoted many hours to 
help her committee come up with new ways to interact with the 

On September 24th, Brockwell spoke at the city 
council meeting on behalf of her committee, describing the need 
for an improvement in the relationship between the two 
communities. "We need each other and need to work together 
to improve our relationship. I believe that the biggest way we 
can improve our relationship is bv opening the lines of 

Another community affairs project was the Madison 
Challenge, a club and organizations food drive competition. SGA 
received 1,507 canned goods and nonperishable foods to be 
donated to those in need in Harrisonburg. "Half of the floor of 
the SGA office was covered in bags and boxes of food!" Brockwell 

exclaimed. The committee also worked on a project in 
conjunction with UPB, a movie on Court Square. Thev planned 
an outdoor family movie where people could bring blankets and 
lawn chairs to watch a family movie. "We always have events on 
campus, but sometimes there seems to be an invisible wall that 
separates JMU and Harrisonburg and residents are apprehensive 
about coming. So it will be an outreach project, in a way," 
Brockwell explained. 

Members of the community felt that the committee 
helped improve the relationship between the university and local 
residents. City planner Keith Markel, a 2000 graduate who 
interacted with the Brockwell and the committee, felt that "many 
times it is easy for the non-student community to look at the 
student population as one big blur that is isolated from the rest 
of the city. Having student leaders in the Community Affairs 
Committee helps to put a face on the student population" 

Harrisonburg Mayor Joe Fitzgerald also expressed 
that there was much need tor an improvement in the relationship 
between the two communities. "A little more awareness of 
students of the community - and of year-round residents can be 
an asset for the community," he stated. "A lot of students make a 
lot of contributions to the community already by volunteering; 
[the community affairs committee] can only make things better." 
Markel revealed that with the addition of this new SGA 
committee, he had much hope for the future concerning 
interactions between school and city. "My hope is that the 
committee members will be able to interact with local citizens 
and organizations to bring about a stronger sense of community 
and understanding," he explained. "We have been missing a great 
opportunity to feed off of the strengths of one another for too 
long. Both the permanent residents and the University- population 
have so much to offer each other," Markel concluded. ■

* he tracks 

You've slept in and are about to be incredibly late for 
your first class. You are running to your class as fast as you can 
when a horrible sound jars your ears. The panting breaths of 
others late to class? No, worse than that. The splintering sound 
of breaking glass and crunching metal of a car accident? No, 
even worse. As you run faster, you hear the now all-too-familiar 
sound again: a train whistle. While some people may find this 
sound unremarkable, perhaps even melodic, to you, it is 
practically a death sentence. You begin to run as hard as you 
possibly can in hopes or beating the train and making it across 
the tracks towards freedom (ok, so maybe just to your class) but 
your efforts prove in vain as the dreaded striped bars begin to 
lower and the red lights begin to flash, crushing all hopes of 
making it to class even remotely on time. 

To many students, the above recollection is an all-too- 
familiar plight. "The train can be really annoying when I get 
stuck waiting for it when I'm running to class or, even worse 
when the whistle wakes me up in the morning," said sophomore 
Lauren Slack. 

The train often times posed so much of a hassle than a 
proposal was brought up to re-route the trains around the campus. 
However, according to Steve Knickrehm, the assistant vice 
president of resource planning, "Trains will be running through 
campus for the foreseeable future. There was some discussion by 
the City Council last spring concerning a plan to reroute the 
trains around Harrisonburg and abandon the existing railroad 
right-of-way. That plan did not go anywhere, however, due to 
lack of support by Rockingham County." 

"I would miss the train if it was gone," said sophomore 
Amanda Stokes. "I like seeing and hearing the train run through 
campus because it's hilarious to watch people run when they 
hear the train whistle so they can get across the tracks in time." 

Despite the hassle or having a railroad running through 
campus, the train was an important part of the school's long 
history. "The present railroad right-of-way was established in 
1895 by the then Chesapeake and Western railroad," said Steve 

Founded in 1908, the university at first was accessible 
for many only by train. According to Madison College: The First 
Fifty Years 1908-1958 by Raymond Dingledine, Jr., "For most 
students living any distance from Harrisonburg, coming to [the 


Q\* ~ 

college] meant traveling by train." For students traveling from 
different parts of Virginia, arriving in Harrisonburg was usually 
an all-day affair consisting of many different train changes. 
According to Dingledine, a student leaving from Richmond at 
8:00 a.m. would not arrive in Harrisonburg until around three 
in the afternoon; a trip from Norfolk took 12 hours by train. 
Without the train, however, the growth of the university would 
have been much slower. 

Students did not have to deal with the hassles of a train 
running through campus until 1952 when the then-President 
Miller purchased 240 acres of the Newman Farm, which included 
the railroad tracks. "Since the trains have been around much 
longer than the campus, it is not so much the case that the campus 
has been modified to adapt to a new situation," said Steve 
Knickrehm. "Instead, starting in the 1960s, we've expanded the 
campus around the tracks. The existence of the tracks is surely a 
factor in how the campus has developed. 

As the campus continued to grow and expand over the 
last few decades, the train became a constant reminder of the 
past in the ever-changing world of today. "Although the train 
can be really noisy and inconvenient at times, it adds a uniqueness 
to the university. It definitely added something to the school in 
mv mind when I was choosing colleges," said sophomore Julia 
Redden. Lauren Slack summed it up. "The train has been such 
an integral part of our school's past. If it was gone, it would be 
like taking away a little piece of history." ■

{a adventure} 

History professor 

to his students. Opala 
was cited for his 
expertise on West 
Africa and the tribes 
that moved from Sierra 
Leone to South 
Carolina and Georgia.

The Breeze 

Inside a small, comfortable office in the Hillcrest 
House sits one of the nation's most prominent researchers and 
historians in his field. Joseph A. Opala, adjunct professor in the 
history department, was one of the "hidden gems" on campus. 
An anthropologist and producer of two award-winning film 
documentaries, Opala was cited in several national media for his 
expertise in West African studies. He appeared on the CBS News 
program "60 Minutes II," and his work was also mentioned in 
The New York Times and The Washington Post. Cable news station, 
CNN also taped Opala for interviews in the past, and his research 
was the basis of two movies, "The Language You Cry In" (1998) 
and "Family Across the Sea" (1991). 

Over the years, Opala has explored the historical 
links between the Gullah people of South Carolina and Georgia, 
the Black Seminoles in Florida, Oklahoma, Alabama and Texas 
and the people of the "Rice Coast" of West Africa, especially 
those in Sierra Leone, where he lived for 1 7 years and taught for 
six. He studied their history of migration across two continents 
over 250 years by using history, linguistics, anthropology and 

In the second halt of the 18th century, there was a 
significant slave trade connection between Sierra Leone and South 
Carolina, Opala said. During that period, South Carolina's 
prosperous economy was based largelv on rice agriculture, and 
since the English colonists had no prior experience with rice 
farming methods, local planters paid higher prices tor slaves from 
the rice-growing region of West Africa, called the "Rice Coast." 
"What I am arguing is that the role of Sierra Leone, in particular, 

py, ft^n^^C-'^C' ^a-t-i^ci/y 

a historical 




in the South Carolina slave trade was much greater than historians 
have realized," Opala said, rolling up his shirt sleeves to the elbow. 

An offshoot or the Gullah people escaped from the 
rice plantations, fled south into the Florida wilderness, and set 
up their own independent villages. These "Black Seminoles" 
established an "African frontier" in Florida, Opala said. When 
American settlers began moving into the area, a full-scale war 
resulted, the greatest slave rebellion in the annals of American 
historv. Eventually, the Black Seminoles fought the U.S. Army 
to a standstill and instead of surrendering or being captured, 
won the right to migrate to the unsettled Western frontier, which 
became Oklahoma. 

"Amazingly, older Black Seminole descendants in 
small communities in Oklahoma, Texas and Mexico still speak 
Gullah — 250 years after their ancestors escaped from the 
Carolina rice plantations," Opala said. Because of their unusual 
history, geographical isolation and strong community life, the 
Gullah have preserved more of their African language and cultural 
heritage than anv other black community in the United States. 

Why are these issues and people important today? 
Opala said one reason is because "... the story of the Black 
Seminoles will ultimately change all our perceptions of American 
history." In a story about the modern descendants of James 
Madison's slaves that appeared in the Spring 2001 edition of 
Montpelier, Opala said, "... The voices of African-Americans 
can alter the way we view American history. Black people have 
played such a powerful role in our national drama, in fact, that 
deleting their voices can only ensure that we distort history." 

Opala said raising awareness and asking questions 
are the driving forces behind his activism in spreading this 
information to Sierra Leone. "I think the time will come when 
Sierra Leoneans will be quite proud that slaves coming largely 
from this country were able to preserve so much of their African 
culture in the [United States]," he said in a May 19, 1986 article 
in West Africa magazine. 

Joanne Gabbin, director of the Honors Program, 
said she asked Opala to teach several courses for the Honors 
Program because of his wide knowledge in African studies and 
the Gullah culture. "He has done some original research in the 
field and his films about the 'Gullah Connection' are 
groundbreaking," Gabbin said. 

When a civil war reached Sierra Leone's capital city, 
Opala had to flee the country in the middle of the night on a 
fishing boat one step ahead of the military coup leading the exile. 
The laid back, easy-going history professor said he was at a 
crossroads between staying in the United States and returning to 
his second home in West Africa, especially now that Sierra Leone 
is once again at peace. "My heart wants me to go back, but this 

yeat is the first year I've really felt at home here in the United 
States (after five years)," Opala said. His commitment and passion 
for studying this topic won't diminish any time soon, he said. 
Several of his students agreed. 

"He struck me as being extremelv knowledgeable 
and passionate about his work," said senior Cristen Crabtree, 
who took two of his "Gullah Connection" classes. "He has given 
so much of his life to this one cause, and I think he has gained 
much from his experience as well. 

"I am grateful for my experience with the Gullah 
that has largely been made possible by Joe Opala. I am excited to 
see where his work will take him, and where he will take his 
work, in the future," Crabtree said. Other students agreed, saying 
they benefited from his knowledge. " An in-depth analysis on a 
certain region, in this case an extremelv important region in 
today's world, is very rewarding in understanding so many things 
about the world," Allak said. "It is tough to find someone like 
him, so rich with worldly knowledge that very few professors 

Opala and his students visited the U.S. Park Service 
in December, presenting a plan for a historic trail that links 
together a number of West African, Gullah and Black Seminole 
historic sites. For five semesters, students in his classes worked 
on a 12vpage document connectiong the Gullah people with 
several American states and other countries. This endeavor was 
an example of how he has involved the university communitv in 
his research. 

"I've been trying to shake up the students' 
historical worldview, get them to see that there is another 
way of looking at American history, but also get them involved 
in something that will actually make things happen," Opala 
said. "If there's any one thing I'd like my students to 
understand it's that we're all really just the same — Americans 
from all backgrounds and ethnic groups have made profound 
contributions to our history." ■

history professor, poses

Arboretum. In his third 
year at the university,

"And number six takes the lead as the jockeys round the 
final lap of the race. It looks as if Klassic Storm might pull through 
to win this one," the announcer relayed to the expectant crowd. 
The 25th anniversary of the Foxfield Races was held on Saturday, 
April 27th, in the beautiful area of Charlottesville, Virginia. 

As the gates opened around 1 0:30 that morning, crowds 
poured in from ail around Virginia and the Eastern Seaboard, 
filling the parking lots with caravans and charter buses. The 
biannual event was held in the countryside of Albemarle County 
the last Saturday of every April and September. Tent parties, 
picnics, and tailgate festivities were celebrated by spectators 
enjoying the atmosphere of the premier horse event. Though 
seating was limited, avid fans set up elaborate spreads of food and 
enjoyed socializing with friends while watching the races.

(Com. from p. !26jBefore the races began, viewers watched the "Celebrity Freestyle Dressage Exhibition" presented by the 
Virginia Dressage Association. The six jockeys were dressed in various costumes, which were judged by a celebrity panel 
including Rita Mae Brown and Tim and Daphne Reid. All the profits from this performance benefitted fiindraising 
activities for the Christopher Reeve Paralysis Foundation to further spinal cord research. Following the exhibition, the 
World Famous Budweiser Clydesdales paraded around the track to celebrate the 25th Anniversary Awards Presentation. 
Past directors and community supporters were honored before the event got underway. 

The horses were saddled in the paddock before each race, where they were judged by three stewards who had 
the final say in all matters regarding the race. The National Steeplechase Association, (NSA), founded in 1895, was the 
governing body for horse racing in the United States. The NSA was based in Fair Hill, Maryland, where they took 
entries, approved officials and inspected courses. They also licensed all participants and kept official statistics. 

A different company or product, such as SunCom, Sprint, or Coca-Cola, sponsored each race. Betting was a 
popular form of competition lor the many spectators who enjoyed the thrill or horse racing. The official race programs 
provided spectators with all the necessary information for each race including sponsors, jockeys and their horses, and 
total money distributed. The race winner collected sixty percent of the total purse. Various shares were paid to those who 
finished second, third and fourth. 

The initiator of Foxfield, Mariann de Tejeda, wanted the event to contribute to the community in a positive 
way. Therefore, a corporate charity was traditionally assigned each spring and fall. The list of charities included organizations 
that helped raise money for various diseases and handicaps. The Foxfield grounds were dedicated in memory to their 
former owner and Virginia horseman Grover Vandevender, who envisioned the event with Tejeda. The first race was 
held in the spring of 1 978. The Foxfield event became a tradition for many in Central Virginia and neighboring towns. 
A day at the races provided horse enthusiasts with enjoyable entertainment, while allowing friends to socialize and learn 
more about racing. ■

on the 

Pretty much ji 
Chris Hesse, when asked 
description also could describi 
second of October at the Convocation Center. 

Hesse, lead singer Doug Robb, bassist Markku 
Lappalainen, and guitarist Dan Estrin made up the band 
Hoobastank. Although ticket sales for the night's show appeared 
to be lacking, Hoobastank's performance was anything but. An 
earnest and roused audience response was all the band needed to 
enchant the crowd with intense guitar-driven melodies and a 
playful stage presence. 

Perhaps the most welcoming receptions came when 
Hoobastank performed "Crawling in the Dark" and "Running 
Away," two hit tracks off their recent Island Records, self-titled 
debut album. Robb held his microphone out to the crowd to let 
them sing the enticing hook, "So why are you running away." 
Descending the stage to let fans sing into the mic, "I'm crawling 
in the dark, looking for the answer," Robb slapped the hands of 
his fellow crowd surfers. "The heavier ones usually are more 
gratifying to play," remarked Hesse with a small shake of the 
head and a twinge of a smile. 

"I had a really good time at the concert but I was really 
disappointed at the amount of students that came out to see 
Hoobastank play," said senior Brook Glover. In spite of a less- 
than packed audience, students who did attend the concert seemed 
to agree the band appeared unfazed and that the show was hard- 
driven. "Hoobastank's drummer rocked the house with hard 
beats and lots of energy," said senior Kerry Brown, who felt the 
backbone of Hoobastank's unwavering tempo was Hesse's 
performance on the drums. 

Apart from the several upbeat tracks off their most 
recent album, the band played a few songs off their first self- 
released album, They Sure Don 't Make Basketball Shorts Like They 
Used To. The album took off worldwide in 1998 at shows, local 
retailers and most definitively online, giving Hoobastank a loyal 
and wide-spread fan base. 

Hoobastank toured with the band Incubus in 2001, and 
earlier this year in Europe. Upon returning from a Southeast 
Asia tour, Hesse said one benefit to being in the business is 
touring. "Being able to travel, seeing a lot of places that most of 
my friends and family will probably never be able to see. I think 
that's the best thing, you get to see every pan of the world," he 

admitted. But when asked what is ilie worse pan ol what he 
does, Hesse answered, "Being away all the lime and traveling so 
nuch," with a wide grin and roll of the eyes. "It's like the best 
:hing and the worse thing at the same time." 

"One of the greatest things about touring is that you 
meet a lot of cool people," Hesse added. "We toured with 311a 
few times and they are probably just the greatest band to tour 
with. All the guys are really nice, really down to earth. They're 
a lot of fun to be around. They're mellow, they know how to 
have a good time, and they have been doing it for a long time." 

Opening for the night's performance was Greenwheel, 
who was on Hoobastank's headlining tour, Hesse offered good 
advice for many of Harrisonburg's promising young bands. "Just 
do what you like to do, try not to compromise," he said 
encouragingly. "Play music because you like to play music, not 
because you just want the fame, because that rarely happens," he 

So what was next for Hoobastank? "After this tour, we 
are just gonna do a few shows here and there, no tours, just 
weekend shows, just take a break and write another record," 
said Hesse. "We've been going strong, by the time this tour is 
over, for a year and a half. That's a long time to be on the road." 

Hesse commented on the size of the Convocation Center 
in relation to the number present: "Smaller clubs are more 
intimate, it's hotter and sweatier, it's usually more of an intense 
show," said Hesse. "At larger venues, you are reaching more 
people and it's usually not as intimate." Although the lack of 
audience turnout was substantial, so was the reception by fans 
who did attend. ■

the "meet and greet" backstage. ■ Photo by Melissa Bates 

Thousands of wondering eyes looked toward a dark 
stage. It remained unoccupied with the exception of a simple 
turntable that somehow seemed to transcend its lonely setting. 
Suddenly, hands and "bows" went up in flames, as the southern 
drawl of one of hip-hip's most high profile rappers enticed an 
eager crowd. Sound ridiculous? Well, it wasn't, it was Ludacris. 

The hip-hop phenomenon bounced onto the stage with 
members of his crew, Disturbing Tha Peace, close behind, 
sending an up-roar throughout the sold-out crowd of a grinning 
3,283 faces. Known for his humorous, outlandish lyrics and 
pulsating beats that got your body moving, the Convocation 
Center was one of Ludacris' first stops on the tour for his new 
album, Word ofMouf. Ludacris performed several tracks of the 
album, which had already gone platinum and marked his second 
release off of Def Jam South Records. 

"It's my goal to make the kind of music that if there 
was no television, no radio, or no street teams, you'd still know 
about my record. That's what Word of Mouf is all about," stated 
Ludacris on his official web site at . Ludacris 
certainly seemed to have achieved his grapevine goal, most 
students anticipated the performance date of the quirky rapper 
last spring along with his southern sliced thug appeal he was 
sure to bring with him. "I've always been the funny dude in my 
crew, so I wanted to put that humor into my lyrics," Ludacris 
admitted on his web site. 

Ludacris performed hot-selling singles from his first 
album, Back for the First Time, which was released in 2000 and 
went double platinum. Tracks such as "What's Your Fantasy" 
and "Southern Hospitality" quickly gained the artist widespread 
popularity and spurred a lively response from the crowd. 

The crowd seemed to respond loudly, when Ludacris 
performed "Area Codes" and "Roll Out (My Business)," two more 
current tracks off of Word of Mouf which encompassed much of 
what the rapper's humor was all about. "This song is for those 
rumor starters," Ludacris talked about on his web site "Roll 
Out," a song that pokes fun at the ridiculousness and the extent 
of the curiosity of his fans. 

Ludacris also had a good time poking fun at the mostly 
white audience, saying at one point during the night how he felt 
he was at an Outkast concert. 

A highlight of the evening came from DJ Jaycee of the 
Disturbing Tha Peace crew. Igniting a series of gasps and applause, 
Jaycee impressed students by taking off his Wilt Chamberlain 
jersey and then his undershirt while still spinning records. The 
seemingly nasty but talented Shawna of the Disturbing Tha Peace 
crew also turned heads when she introduced Ludacris' 
performance of Missy Elliot's "One Minute Man." Ludacris also 
performed his verses in Lil Jon's "Bia Bia" and Camron's "What 
Means the World to You." 

The band 2 Skinnee J's opened for Ludacris and 
maintained the interest of an anxious crowd. The band's 
distinctive sound, good personalities, and white suit shirts with 
cut off sleeves and ties brought a different, but refreshing spin to 
the regularly intense environment of a hip-hop concert. ■

variety of sounds that made their music all their own. ■ Photo by Rachel O'DonneW 

Students from Music Industry (MUI) 422 and SMAD 
304 hosted Virginia Coalition in concert on Sunday March 24, 
2002. The students were responsible for the process from start 
to finish. "They handle everything... they act like a program 
board," said Chris Stup, instructor of both MUI422 and 

The event was planned, organization, promoted and 
executed by students in these two classes. This was the first time 
the class was offered in the spring. Because funding for the class 
project was provided for the fall semester, the spring had less 
money to work with. 

The two classes produced a professional music video 
and audio CD for Virginia Coalition, asking the band to reduce 
the performance cost in return. Virginia Coalition agreed, so 
the students produced the first live CD recorded in Wilson Hall. 
Virginia Coalition was an ideal band for the project because they 
were already popular among students were known as a "bar band" 
since they were not signed to a record label. 

"Virginia Coalition doesn't really have many videos, 
so this can really help them out," said Kristen Teesdale, Director 
of Public Relations for the event. "And we used that for 
promotion to get students here, because it isn't every day we do 
a live recording at the university," Teesdale said. 

As for the students responsible for producing and 
promoting the event, this was a good learning and hands-on 
experience. "It really makes you appreciate a concert once you've 

seen everything that goes into it," Teesdale said. "This event was 
putting into action everything that we have learned in the class." 

Although the event was the first of its kind at the 
university, the students and professors involved hoped to start a 
new trend. "We want to build a resume of recording with Virginia 
bands and then try to attract bigger names, with the offer of a i 
professional live recording," Stup said. 

The Virginia Coalition concert was co-sponsored by 
Apple Computers, who provided a G4 computer for the recording , 
along with eight digital video recorders and also a generous financial 
donation for the event. Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) . 
also sent one professor and six students to help with the production. 
MTSU has one of the leading audio programs in the nation, 
according to Stup. "We were combining resources... they brought 
up most of the recording equipment used for the show," said Stup. 

Although there was low attendance of about 300 the night 
of the concert, when the concert began energy filled Wilson Hall. 
When the lights in the auditorium dimmed, the stage was rushed, 
where most people immediately began dancing to the funky beats 
of Virginia Coalition. 

The attendance was noted by students who came to the 
show and felt "there should have been more people," Junior Jason 
Wallenhorst said. "But they put on a good show, there was enough 
energy from the crowd," Wallenhorst said. 

Virginia Coalition actively involved the audience 
throughout the entire concert, by allowing the crowd to sing the> 
chorus and asking the crowd to yell "Salsa!" The audience enjoyed i 
the interaction with the band. "My favorite part is the crowd 
participation," said junior David Keith. "They always put on a 
great show." 

The unusual mix of folk beats and Latin rhythm tied 
together with funky tones made for a well-received show. "I got 
hooked on Virgina Coalition in South Carolina," said freshman 
Chris Carlson. "I've seen them four times so far and I think all 
their songs are great." Virginia Coalition's second CD called 
"Townburg" was released in September 2002. ■

"This was the first show ever in this room," explained 
singer Howie Day to the hundreds of students that gathered in the 
new College Center Grand Ballroom. "I think we did a pretty 
good job of breaking it in." Howie Day visited the university in 
November while on his national tour. Preceded by opening act 
Bleu, he entertained a full house in one of the newest additions to 
campus. Performing solo, Howie Day played an acoustic guitar. 

The 21-year-old self-proclaimed "singer-songwriter" from 
Bangor, Maine has been playing since the age of five and performing 
since age 15. "I started off playing in bars, which is kind of funny 
because I wasn't even close to being old enough to be allowed in 
there," he said. "I've always loved music and I knew I wouldn't 
want to do anything else with my life." 

Howie Day attributed his mellow combination of acoustic 
melodies and electronic beats to influences such as the Beatles, U2, 
Elton John, Richard Ashcroft and Jeff Buckley. "I really take my 
influences from everything I listen to," he said. "Every time I listen 
to a song or a new artist, I take something away with me that I can 
draw from in the future." 

Although he has toured all over the country and played 
for all different kinds of audiences, Howie Day said he did not 
prefer one type of audience to another. 

"There are different kinds of audiences and they are all 
equally good," he said. "There's the energetic and loud crowd that 
really gets into the music and then there's the smaller, quieter 
crowds. Those are usually the more loyal fans. You can tell you're 
appreciated by them even though they're not losing their minds." 

Being a young singer songwriter with many of his songs 
appearing on such shows as The Real World and Dawson's Creek as 
well as the I Am Sam soundtrack, it was easy for Howie Day to be 
compared to others such as John Mayer and Dave Matthews Band. 
That, however, did not bother him. "I really don't mind the 
comparisons. I mean, that's just how it goes. And if it sells me a 
few more records, then that's all the better," he said. "I think that 
the state of the world today gives artists such as us more of a chance. 
People are more on edge and are looking for things with more

career by playing in bars. ■ Photo by Morgan Riehl 

Although he classifies his type of music as "singer/ 
songwriter," Howie Day admits it's a very arbitrary category. 
"Think of all of the singer/songwriters you know," he said. "They 
are all different. It's not a definitive category, and I think that 
gives the musicians a lot of room to experiment." 

Howie Day liked to have fun with his fans by speaking 
comically to his audience in between songs. The artist's humor 
was evident in his performance and even the way he named his 
album. "People always ask me why the title of my album is 
Australia, especially since I am from Maine," he said. "Really, 
there is no reason. When I was first starting out, I would tell 
audiences I was from Australia and go up there with an accent 
and everything, so that gave me the idea. But really, I named it 
that just because I wanted to." 

With a national tour, a single out on the airwaves and a 
huge collegiate fan base, Howie Day seemed to have no where to 
go but up. He tried not to let his success go to his head. "In the 
future, I just want to be happy, doing shows and writing music 
that I like. I want to be able to grow as an artist," he said. "There's 
not any true turning point in which I begin to think, 'Ah, this is 
it, I'm on my way.' I think being an artist you just have to evolve 
on your own."

annual event that gave each chapter a chance to

"Greek Week was awesome!" exclaimed sophomore 
Danie Bloczynski, "Even though it rained and I ended up in the 
mud losing tug-of-war to the Alpha Phi's, we still had a lot of fun." 

Many shared Bloczynski's sentiment as the Greek 
community's annual event kicked off April 7, 2002 with the 
theme "Get Your Greek On." The drug- and alcohol-free week 
hill or activities and fundraisers was designed to bring all Greeks 
closer together. "The purpose of Greek Week is to celebrate 
growth and character, service and leadership," said sophomore 
Jillian Macey, one of the core committee members. 

All eight sororities participated, as well as three 
fraternities: Theta Chi, Delta Chi and Alpha Kappa Lambda. 
The Greeks earned points lor each event they participated in 
and at the end of the week the sorority and fraternity with the 
most points was named Overall Greek Week winner. 

The week began bright and early on Sunday with the 
5k walk/ run benefiting die charity Race For a Cure. On Monday the 
Greeks held a Crest Drawing, a competition between all of the 
Iraternities and sororities where each group drew their crest in I 
sidewalk chalk on the row drive. The contest was judged tor 
creativity and artistic value. The Greeks also gathered for a 
Monday movie night. Tuesday and Wednesday, sororities and 
fraternities observed their Nights of Service by spending time 
helping out at the Boys and Girls Club. The Greek community also 
sponsored a blood drive in PC Ballroom on Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Greek Sing, the most popular event of the week, was 
held on Thursday. "Greek Sing was a concert that promoted 
Greek unity," Macey explained. "Each sorority or fraternity 
picked a theme and had five minutes to perform. There was 
singing, dancing, routines on the risers, and costumes. It was 
really a lot of tun." fraternities participated in Greek Sing: 
Sigma Nu, Zeta BetaTau, Kappa Delta Rho and Kappa Alpha.

addition to the first, second, and third place group awards, 
individual participants were also honored in categories such as 
creativity, audience appeal, showmanship, best vocalist, best 
riser choreography and best floor choreography. 

"The judges did a great job; everyone was very 
deserving of their award," Macey said. "All the judges were 
very involved in the community and showed their support for 
Greek life by participating in Greek Sing, and we really 
appreciated that," she added. 

The activities continued on a rainy Friday with a 
Greek Fest Carnival on Godwin field. There were games, a 
dunking tank for all of the presidents, and a wing-eating contest. 
"Despite the rain, I had a great time," said sophomore Jacqi

'Winning Greek Week was so exciting because it brought us 
together as a chapter and gave us a sense of accomplishment," 
said Alpha Phi President, senior Noelle Stefanelli. 

Throughout the week, the organizations held various 
fundraisers such as Penny Wars and a Food Drive. All proceeds 
from Greek Week were split between the Pentagon Relief Fund 
and a Girl Scout troop in Harrisonburg that was building a 
playground in Purcell Park. The food from the Food Drive went 
directly to Valley Missions. Over $5000 was raised in all. 

"I feel that the we did an excellent job upholding the 
purpose of Greek Week," Macey added, "This was one of the 
biggest years we've had so far, and it really showed the community 
that the Greek system is a positive thing." ■

summer in nyc through the eyes of *^ 
senior katy kain as a music publicity intern 

What would you call three months spent with the nine- 
year publicist of the Ramones, the former personal assistant to 
Courtney Love, and the original booker and promoter tor the 
Strokes, all inside a small, two-room office space on Manhattan's 
Upper West Side? A great internship, and not to mention a 
summer that I will never forget. 

I interned last summer for ten weeks with Ida S. Langsam 
(ISL) Public Relations, an independent music publicity firm, 
with a small client roster of up-and-coming music artists. I lived 
with my sister in Brooklyn, about half an hour outside the city 
by subway. Having a week to spare before I would begin interning, 
my time was spent wandering along the streets of Manhattan, 
learning the infamous subway system, which was actually not as 
scary as it looked. Once I had "Uptown" and "Downtown" 
figured out, I was all set. 

My first day of the internship went smoothly, basically 
familiarizing myself with the firm's musical artists and procedures. 

My decision to intern with this small firm, comprised of a three- 
person staff, as opposed to a larger one, was incredibly rewarding. 
The firm's president, worked on publicity for the Ramones for 
nine years. A "publicist extraordinaire," she had also worked with 
Kiss, Joan Jett, Billv Idol, Meatloaf, and the Damned. ISLPR's 
other full-time publicist, who also had her own independent 
booking and promotions company, shocked me with the extent 
of her knowledge of the Lower-East-Side's rock scene. She helped 
give the Strokes a fan base that soon led them to a record deal. 
The part-time publicist at the firm was also a publicity "wiz" in 
her own right. Aside from being a personal assistant to Courtney 
Love, she also assisted Naomi Campbell, and was a publicist for 
Blues Traveler's Jon Popper. So needless to say, I strongly felt I 
was in good company. (Continued on p.1 49)

press kits to send off to writers and other media. Of course, there 
was the copying, faxing, answering phones, and filing that is 
found with any internship, but as my boss had promised at my 

nterview. it was not the focal point of my position. I was also 
told I would need to attend all New York shows of our artists, 
and that not to worn', I would be on the guest list. I thought to 
myself, "I have no problem with that! ' 

One or the bands I worked on was Moodroom, an 
alternative- rock pop group coming right out of local District of 
olumbia. They have been compared to No Doubt, the Smashing 
Pumpkins, and Garbage. I also worked on publicity for John 
Washburn, a singer/songwriter and guitarist, who describes his 
music himself as "rwangv rock and roll." We also started publicitv 
for Pernell Disney, another singer/songwriter with a dream-pop 

ound similar to that of Duncan Sheik. 

I soon found that my internship with ISLPR had many 
perks. One was meeting Kerri, the full-time publicist. The seven

years between us did not stop her from taking me out in the city. 
I spent many nights in the Lower East Side, becoming engrossed 
in the talent that struck the stage at the bars and clubs of the 
East Village. One night at the Luna Lounge, the bar I frequented 
the most, Kerri introduced me to the bassist and drummer of 
the Strokes, who had just happened to be home in New York 
Citv for the weekend. 

One night I will never forget was the Dee Dee Ramone 
Tribute at Continental, a New York City spot where the legendary 
punk rock band, the Ramones, always used to play. Sadly, Dee 
Dee Ramone had died the past June. Continental's owner asked 
my boss to do a press release summarizing a tribute he wanted to 
hold for Dee Dee, and if she could arrange an interview between 
Rolling Stone and the remaining members of the Ramones during 
sound check for the tribute. She set up the interview and brought 
me with her earlv that dav to sit in on the interview and obtain 
quotes about Dee Dee tor the press release. I spent the evening 
surrounded by countless legendarv punk rockers, friends of Dee 
Dees, and Ramones tans. 

We had many calls to the office the dav after Dee Dee's 
death. One day I nearly tell of my chair when I heard Kerri 
transfer a call to my boss, saying "Kurt Loder from MTV on line 
one." I actually ended up pitching a lot of our artists to MTV 
My boss asked me one day to find out how we would go about 
getting our clients' music on MTV's Undressed, a steamy soap 
opera-like show. I called all over the place, first New York, then 
Los Angeles, then up to Canada where I finally found the show's 
music coordinator. After telling me to send up some matetial to 
him, I wrote a pitch letter about each of our artists. A week later 
he called back saying he loved the music and he wanted them on 
the show. Needless to say, I was happy and gave myself a little 
pat on the back. 

I came awav from New York City very satisfied with mv 
experience. I also came away broke, a great way to start oft the 
new school year. But it was all worth it. The internship was 
unpaid, but I can definitely say the experience was priceless. ■

[makingof band]- 

the human condition 

"It was your name dude, you're in 
charge," said senior and lead singer Brian Pino, as 
he looked at senior lead guitarist Aaron Stanley 
with a grin. Apparently, none of the guys wanted 
the responsibility of answering the simple yet 
somehow dreaded question of how their band 
came to be called The Human Condition. After 
several outbreaks of laughter and a few honest 
attempts, Stanley stepped up to the plate. 

"It's kind of a catch-22, I suppose," he 
explained. "It refers to how man continues to make 
'breakthroughs' in technology but, in fact, we're 
really destroying the planet. We continue to 
advance ourselves, while nearing closer to 
destroying existence as we know it." 

The Human Condition looked to make 
a breakthrough into the music industry. The five- 
member late '90s rock-electronic group had the 
talent, as well as the drive and down-to-earth 
personalities needed to achieve success.

Bar and Grille. Many student bands

In addition to Pino and Stanley, the band 
also included bassist senior Bill Whitney, drummer 
senior Rob Walker, and deejay senior Ben Scott. 
Walker and Scott were the newest additions to the 
band, formerly known as Sidewalk Closed. 

So where did these guys find their 
inspiration? "Sonny and Cher, definitely," joked 
Stanley, followed by uncontrollable laughter. While 
each member had several all-time favorites, their 
influences stemmed from the dynamics of great 
rock, such as Radiohead, Rage Against the 
Machine, Pink Floyd, Tool, Foo Fighters, Pearl 
Jam, and Incubus. 

"I think, as a whole, the music scene 
continues to get more and more diverse," said 
Stanley. "New styles are being innovated every day. 
There needs to be a new sound revolution ... like 
Hendrix in the late 1960s, or hip-hop in the 1980s." 

"There's a lot of really good new bands 
out there that aren't getting the recognition they 
deserve because some would rather hear radio- 
friendly, formulated pop rock as opposed to real 
music with real emotion, by real people," claimed 
Pino. Whitney liked to classify' their musical style 
as "evolved grunge with an electronic edge. 
Courtesy of Scott, several of their songs were 
interspersed with eclectic electronic beats and 
melodies. "Our style differs only because we are a 
combination of so many different styles; ska, punk, 
jazz, rock, drum and bass, jam rock, and metal," 
Pino listed. "No two songs of ours sound the same." 

The Human Condition maintained a 
strong fan base, playing gigs around Harrisonburg 
as well as in Richmond, Charlottesville, and 
Philadelphia. "We have a pretty decent fan base, 
people who come out to see us every time. They've 
been with us for about three years now," said 
Stanley. The band recorded several tracks in 
Philadelphia with Nocturnal Noise in the fall and 
sent out press kits with the samplers, hoping to 
plav more gigs outside Virginia. "This is a really 
hard scene for bands to make it in," stated Stanley. 
"In a larger city, we could get better exposure." 

"The more we play, the more people hear 
us, the better we get, and the more likely we will 
be able to make a career out of this. In the next 



few years I would love to see us considered as a 
regional touring act," Pino said. 

The band surely put forth the effort during 
the year. "I work at Spanky's, go to class, and I play. 
It's a nightmare!" Pino joked. A lot of the work came 
from a practice schedule that Pino explained as long 
and tiring. "Some days we'll just run the songs we 
know and try to clean them up a little bit," he said. 
"Other days we'll come together with ideas and spend 
three or four hours writing a song. Either way, there's 
a lot of goofing around going on which keeps it 
interesting. Basically, all we do is laugh when we're 
together but it's fun. We amuse ourselves and love 
every second ot it." 

While the band agreed that they were not 
threatened by other local competition, they also said 
that there were some really great local bands that had 
similar goals and were good songwriters. As far as 
songwriting went, Pino took the helm at devising 
lyrics but overall the finished product was a team 
effort. "The more we've developed as a band, the more 
we've started to do collective work," said Pino. "Of 
course disagreements happen. Not every one thinks 
alike, especially when you're writing a song. 
Sometimes you have to stand back and say well, 'Bill's 
a music major and I'm not. His idea might work so 
let's try it.' And usually you are happy with the result. 

Basically the hardest part is overcoming your own ego." 

Pino's deep-felt vocals, backed by intense guitar- 
layered rhythms, strong percussion beats and an electronic 
vibe brought out the versatility in each of the band's songs, 
such as "While the World Turns On," "Jester," and "Circus 

"I think we take a different route than most bands 
as far as our songs are concerned," admitted Stanley. 
"Already our sound has mutated into something new. I 
mean, almost completely different than it was three weeks 
ago. So, I think we're really trying to push the envelope. 
We all come from different styles, and we're working really 
hard to incorporate those differences into our overall sound." 

"I think we've got a real definitive sound and 
once its hits people's ears thev won't be able to get enough," 
Pino claimed. The five seniors would love to see something 
happen for them by the time they graduate, but for the 
most part they felt it was about making the music they 
love. "We're all incredible critics of the music that we listen 
to," said Stanley. "We figure it we like it, then out music 
must be on the right track. I don't see us ever trying to sell 
out or anything of that nature. I don't think we could 
stomach ourselves if we did." 

"All I want is to be able to suppott myself making 
music," Pino admitted. "If that's possible then I'm happy. 
If that includes a record contract then I'm very happy." ■

bon leaf 

You mav have seen them perform at Mainstreet Bar and Grille 
in downtown Harrisonburg. Or perhaps even in Charlottesville or 
Richmond. But you most likelv saw them perform right in your own 
living room: on television, of course! In January, Carbon Leaf, the 
five-member band from Richmond, performed at the American Music 
Awards (AMAs) in Los Angeles' Shrine Auditorium after winning the 
coveted Coca-Cola New Music Award. With their Celtic-influenced 
rock sound and plethora of interesting instruments such as the 
mandolin, bagpipes, bouzouki and the banjo, Carbon Leaf entertained 
the live audience and 80 million people worldwide with their single, 
"The Boxer," becoming the first unsigned band to ever perform at 
the AMAs. Not bad for five college friends. 

Before such awe-inspiring moments, the band had more 
humble beginnings. Four of the band's members, Barn' Privett, Terry 
Clark, Carter Gravett and Scott Milstead, met at Randolph-Macon 
College in Richmond during their freshman year in 1992. They 
formed the band with Privet on lead vocals, Clark on guitar, Gravett 
on mandolin and Milstead on drums. 

After graduating in 1996, the band began touring the East 
Coast college and nightclub circuit and eventually recorded their first 
two albums, Meander and its follow up. Shadows in the Banquet Hall. 
When their original bass player quit in 1997, the band found itself 
struggling to stay afloat. After two years, five bassists and countless 
auditions, they struck gold with Jordan Medes. 

"I was surfing the web one day and found that a band in 
Richmond was looking tor a bassist. I went to their website, listened 
to some of their stuff and sent an email to Barn- saying I really wanted 
to audition. The next week I did and I felt things just clicked between 

Barry, Terry, Scott, Cattet and I," said Medes, an alumnus. "We plaved 
our first gig with him in 1999, and we knew right away we had 
something," Clark said. 

With all of the members in place, the band continued touring 
and expanding their tan base, ranging from college students to middle- 
aged fans. The band went on to record their third and fourth albums, 
Ether-Electrified Porch Music and Echo Echo, from which "The Boxer" 
was cut. 

In 2002. Carbon Leaf received the chance of a lifetime when 
they were selected from over 800 bands to receive the Coca-Cola 
New Music Award. "It was exhausting," said Privett. "It took about 
eight months from entering to performing. We played in front of 
about 7,000 audience members at the Shrine Auditorium and famous 
people and industry insiders, so that was kind of a trip. " 

Playing regularlv in Harrisonburg, Carbon Leaf gained a great 
portion of their fan base at the university. Sophomore Summer Gentry 
became a tan after seeing them plav on tour with Cake. "I really liked 
their music, so I went over and introduced myself to the band. They 
were reallv friendlv and since then we've become prettv good friends," 
she said. 

Gentry's friend, junior Katie Bace, agrees. "I like Carbon Leaf 
because they have a unique sound and the abilitv to plav various 
instruments. They are amazing performers and they really make the 
crowd feel involved. 

Carbon Leaf came a long way from their college days back 
in Richmond, but not without hard work. "It takes time," Privett 
said. "We've just done it little by little. We can't do it alone When you 
can't get on the radio, word of mouth is key and tans are the lite 
blood." From being proclaimed "The Best Unsigned Band in America" 
by Dick Clark to winning an American Music Award, Carbon Leaf 
was well on their way to the top. ■

Popular local band "My Blue Pill" spent the year 
playing their music oi choice, turning many heads, pushing 
the limits, and gaining the hand recognition. 1 he hand s 
single "A Certain Cure appeared on the January CMJ 
New Music for 2003 compilation. Fort)' thousand copies 
were distributed to most record stores nationwide. In 
November, the band finished shooting a TV spot tor the 
Original Music Showcase in Charlottesville ot which the 
footage was used tor a 30-second spot airing on MTV. 

The bands unique sound stemmed trom their 
eclectic fit ot instrumental talent as well as musical 
influences ranging trom Radiohead. Deftones, DJ Logic, 
and B|ork. With a sound that lead singer and guitarist 
Chris Castiglione called "experimental and post- 
alternative. Along with senior Castiglione, My Blue Pill 
included seniors Nick Lombardi on the bass and 
programming, Caleb Vesey handling the drum kit, and 
Dave Strong performing hand percussion. Junior Behvin 
McDonnell plaved the cello and keyboards. 

The five-piece group recorded their second CD 
this vear. an album that gave more of a teel tor their live 
shows with quick electronic drumbeats, cello and thick 
guitar rhythms. My Blue Pill recorded their first CD, 
"Locus, in upstate New York with producer JP 

Sheganoski, who has worked with renowned artists such 
as Bjork, Eric Clapton, and Mariah Carey. 

A busv schedule was normal for My Blue Pill, 
since they practiced around three times a week while 
holding down jobs and attending classes. Usually spending 
at least 20 hours a week together, the band admitted they 
were verv close. Castiglione said a good amount of time 
was spent doing "arts and crafts." which consisted ot 
putting together promotion materials tor their upcoming 



The band's creativity and songwriting was a 
collective ettort. experimenting with their two drummers. 
organ sounds and vocal melodies. "I like to think we are 
much more innovative than most ot the stuff on the radio. 
said Castiglione. "The medium of popular radio by nature, 
does not willing and fully subscribe to creative music." 

"People are making good music, but if you only 
listen to the radio and MTV you are missing out," 
Castiglione stated. "Anything that is played on mainstream 
radio is most likelv a generic cookie cut ot some other 
band. You need to challenge yourself. The music needs to 
have meaning, it needs to be original and push the 
boundaries." ■

behind the scenes at 
parking services 

Their work affected hundreds, even thousands of lives 
m a single day. Some people feared them. Some were angered bv 
them. Some came to understand thev were just doing a job. 
Whatever their reputation, the university's parking attendants 
were an important part of campus life. 

The students who worked for parking services were just 
that — students. They couldn't make the rules or change 
them. They could not create more parking or let students park 
anywhere they wanted. They dealt with the parking situation as 
commuters and also as enforcers. Parking services was one of the 
most misunderstood departments at the university. The parking 
problem was not something that could be easily solved, but the 
office did what they could all year to make things work as 
well as possible. 

Parking attendants had two main roles: that of 
monitoring, and that of enforcing. Students rotated between roles 
during the week. Monitots were in charge of making everything 
run smoothlv. Thev had to inform people where they could park 
and keep students out of lots when? they wete not allowed. They 
kept traffic and campus running smoothly,(Conr/nuedonp./59J

The work of a parking attendant was never done. Their 
>b did not cease because of bad weather. Thev worked in the 
)ld, the rain, the dark, and the early hours of the morning, 
basically as long as the university is open, we are," said Brvan 
:coraro. Supervisor at Parking Services. Parking attendants worked 
om early morning until nine at night, when thev were required 
) have a partner to patrol. After 9 p.m. the police department 
iok over, as well as a separate department of parking enforcement. 

Contrary to rumor, parking attendants did not get any 
>ecial parking privileges. "The parking situation is as hard on 
s as it is for everyone else," said senior Ben Lundy, a parking 
Tiployee of three and a half years. "We wish there was enough 
irking for everyone but it's the way campus is built. We can't 
structure it." Though their jobs were tough at times, employees 
lostly enjoyed working for parking services. Junior Pam Williams 
:lt the work atmosphere was most important. "The atmosphere 
ad the people are great," she said. "It's not a mean place to 
ork, and we aren't mean people. Everyone is really nice, if people 
ould only realize this." Senior Sarah Kevorkian agreed that their 
nvironment was full of great people, "No one enjoys giving 
ckets, we just do what we are assigned to do." Their jobs allowed 

them to work with different students, of different majors, and 

Working in a field that affected so many people 
generated plenty of funny stories. One employee's favorite story 
was an event that happened last year. Four roommates had a 
contest to see who could get the most parking tickets in a week. 
1 hev made up parrv fliers for a five- or six-keg party and whoever 
won the bet wouldn't have to pay tor the part)'. For a week these 
students followed the parking attendants around, parking in 
ridiculous places, blocking parking lots, doing absurd things, 
and begging the attendants for tickets. After a week they had 
racked up over SI, 000 in tickets. 

Parking employees also had to endure the wrath of 
ticketed students, from being cursed at to students trying to 
rip up their tickets, but thev tried to find the humor even in 
tense situations." The tickets won't really rip," said Williams. 
"They are protected by a plastic material. It's always funny when 
students get mad and try ro rip them up in your face and they 
just can't do it." "People try to burn the tickets sometimes, 
laughed senior Andrew Canapa. "They try to set them on fire, 
but they are non-flammable." 

Despite the hard work and occasional confrontation, 
parking attendants enjoved their job, working with great people, 
being able to work outdoors, and having plenty of stories to tell. ■

Where can you jam to the tune of an old favorite song, 
inspired by the poetic words of a softly spoken voice, or ro 
the floor with laughter from pure comedic bliss? Open Mic 
ight, of course. 

Taylor Down Under was the place to study, socialize, 
lax, and on Tuesday nights, to be entertained. Talented and 
arless students continued doing almost anything to please their 
dience. There were no rules when it came to Open Mic 
ight. No one expected perfection, especially since this was the 
time for many students to perform on stage. Talent included 
usicians, writers, artists, and comedians. For many performers 
was a nerve-racking experience, for others it was an adrenaline 
sh to have complete control of the microphone. 

The list of performers changed each night. Some came 
ack almost every week; others made a guest appearance every 
3 often. Some students debuted their talent only once and never 
:turned to the stage. Among the list of frequent acts was the 
uo of seniors Al Philpott and Matt Whitten. The vocal and 
uitar duo rocked out to songs from the bluegrass genre and 
Me by Phish. The duos philosophy was just to have fun and 
et up on stage relaxed and happy. Whitten, with five years of 

guitar experience, and Philpott with eight, found inspiration from 
Tony Rice, Trey Anastasio, and Yonder Mountain String Band. 
New to the stage was songwriter and guitarist sophomore John 
Sander, playing both original songs and some Grateful Dead. 
His unique style included an eclectic mix of blues, modern, and 
hardcore rock. 

One of the funniest comedic acts of the year came from 
senior David Clementson. Clementson performed a stand up 
comedy act about the university, poking fun at the various 
annoyances on campus. Whether joking about run-ins with 
parking attendants, the joys of the dining hall experiences, or 
other problems encountered bv the average student, Clementson's 
lively act kept the audience entertained. "I'm surprised that with 
a campus as funny as this one, I'd be the first person in a really 
long time to perform stand up comedy," he commented. 
Clementson said his biggest inspiration was "stand-up legend 
Larry David. I was named after him. Just kidding." 

Clementson also pointed out the humor in signs around 
campus. "Does anyone find it funny that there are signs at the 
railroad crossing that say do not cross when train is approaching?" 
he asked the audience. (Continued on p.163)

(Cont.fromp.161) "Now for the guy that is going to cross anyway, 
is he really going to stop and read that sign and rethink whether 
he should be crossing? Probably not." 

Senior Daniel Foose also took a chance at comedy. 
Normally a musical performer, he tried out his comedic skills 
for the first time at Open Mic Night. In light of the university's 
budget struggles, Foose shared some of his own off-the-wall ideas 
or how to save money. In order to cut dining costs, he joked that 
Aramark should change the value of a punch to $2 and make a 
double punch $4. 

Foose continued to explain his imaginary budget. To 
save money on professors tor introductory courses, several general 
education classes could have just one section a semester, which 
could meet in the Convocation Center, he said. Also, any car 
with an out-of state license plate would be required to pay an 
additional $50 a semester. This would apply to out-of-state 
professors, parents, and visitors, Foose explained. Students with 
bumper stickers would be required to pay the fee as well. 

To save more money, Foose said that Parking Services 
could have unprecedented authority to give parking tickets. Cars 
that could be ticketed would include Saabs, new Beetles, any 
model older then 1988, any car from Japan, any car with a vanity 
plate, and cars that are yellow. Each offense would be worth $ 1 5 
dollars, and any combination of offenses would accumulate. To 
receive such fines, a student need not be parked in a restricted 
area, but just own a car with one or more of the above 

Foose suggested that the university could bring in extra 
revenue by allowing various industrial companies to dump 
hazardous waste into Newman Lake. "Don't worry," he said, "I 
doubt the waste is any more harmful than whatever substances 
are currently floating around there." With all the money saved 
by his suggestions, Foose said the school could hire more parking 
attendants, build a fence around the Quad so no one could sit 
on it, and install more outdoor sprinklers to water the sidewalks 
and students. Also, the university could fund a new department 
to research the dog food smell. 

Open Mic Night was a special experience ever)' Tuesday, 
showcasing many acts, each with its own unique flare. The TDU 
stage may have been the first step to stardom for some of these 
talented performers. ■

A childhood pastime resurfaces 

One of the best parts of childhood was 
spending lazy summer afternoons playing board 
games and learning how to plav cards. Once students 
reached college, however. playtime usually got pushed 

aside. Between studying, attending classes and writing papers, many students did not have free time to 
escape their busy class schedules. In spite of their hectic lives, many students learned how to balance their 
work and find some time to bring back childhood fun. 

The board games of choice among students were Monopoly, Taboo, Yahtzee and Scrabble. "I 
definitely reel that by playing board games my roommates and I are bringing back a part of our childhood," 
said junior Elizabeth Friend. "It brings back good childhood memories and takes vour mind off the grown- 
up real world." Friend added that she and her roommates liked Taboo, "because it's fast-paced and gives you 
an excuse to yell out the most random things. You can't help but laugh at the outburst of random words and 
funny explanations that go along with the game of Taboo." Scrabble for some students was a way to make up 
words and laugh about the interesting combinations people came up with, while a game of Monopoly could 
go on for hours. 

Card games also became popular. Junior Tom Dean' and his friends played Magic, adding a gambling 
twist to the festivities. "I feel like I have too much money, and I don't smoke, so it gives me something 
pointless on which to waste mv money," Dearv said. 

Attempting to forget about the piles of work that needed to be done was the inspiration for the 
childhood comeback with most students. "They are fun and it gives us something to do, said junior Leigh 
Buckley. "We play games for fun and to relieve the stress of school with a little friendly competition," Friend 
added. "I suppose Magic does relieve stress, except when I lose," Dean* said. 

Many board game matches were spotted in Taylor Down Under, where students enjoyed a relaxed 
atmosphere. Board and card games also proved to be good icebreakers in a new dorm hall. "It is an excuse for 
us all to hang out and forget about school," Friend said. "We started playing freshman year in the dorm late 
one night as a way to procrastinate. We laughed a whole lot and it brought the group of us closer together. 
Even though we were all really tired for class the next day it was worth it. We still talk about that night." 
added Buckle}'. 

Whether it was to bond, relieve stress, gamble, or to just forget about the world, bringing back a 
piece of the past proved to be worthwhile for many students. ■

History of Rock 
Professor Rick 
DiGiallonardo sits at his 
piano in his office.

headed the Music 
Industry Department.

rock 'n roll 

Professor DiGiallonardo keeps rock 
roll alive in the classroom. 

He worked in the recording studio with Elton John, Sammv 
Haggar, Linda Rodstat, Bob Seger, Loverboy. Rick Springfield, Joe Walsh 
and manv others. He wrote music for Fast Times at Ridgemorit High, Nightshifi 
and Gremlins. He met Queen in Amsterdam and Billy Joel at Madison Square 
Garden. All before he had any knowledge of our East Coast school. 

Professor Rick DiGiallonardo, Prof. D. or Rick D. to most of his 
students, had quite a resume when he applied for the Music Industry 
Coordinator position in 1998. Before he received an email from a friend 
about the opening, DiGiallonardo had never even heard of the university, 
having grown up on the West Coast. Although the deadline for applications 
had passed, he applied anyway and was surprised when he received a 
telephone interview and was soon hired. 
DiGiallonardo brought with him a controversial History of Rock class that became the largest class 
offered at the university with 323 students. DiGiallonardo attributed the class's popularity to the nature of 
class and his professional experience in the music industry. "Society reflects rock and vice versa," he said. "So, 
the class, by nature, needed to be fun." Though the professor recognized that some traditionalists might find 
his class inconsequential to the study of music, he believed that as time went on, the field of music industry 
would become more and more important. "You cannot just dismiss rock-and-roll as something that was here 
and gone," said DiGiallonardo. "When someone asks what influenced you in the sixties and seventies, it's 
not going to be twentieth-century composers. It's going to be the Beatles." 

DiGiallonardo double majored in Music and Psychology at Portland State University and completed 
his masters and doctorate in Music Theory at the University of North Texas. He also taugh t at both schools. 
After college, DiGiallonardo began work as a studio musician, signing with Geffen Records. He eventually 
signed by Polygram Records. As a keyboardist/pianist, he toured with big names. DiGiallonardo remembered 
playing Madison Square Garden with Elton John tour nights in a row, meeting Yoko Ono, Andy Warhol and 
many others on those nights, and even having a food fight with Elton John, shoving a banana in his face and 
getting pummeled with M&Ms. 

Also while touring with Elton John, DiGiallonardo met his wife when she came backstage for an 
autograph after a concert. They married a few years later, and he continued to tour full-time for three years. 
DiGiallonardo finally settled into teaching when he and his wife were expecting their first child. Though 
DiGiallonardo said he missed the touring life, he admitted that the rock-and-roll life is "a young man's 
sport," and if he ever went back into the business, it would be as a manager or producer. 

Until then, DiGiallonardo designed three new classes to implement in following years: Artist 
Management, Songwriting and Publishing, which he looked forward to getting off the ground. He anticipated 
they would provide valuable skills for graduates entering the music industry. "The way music is traditionally 
taught at the university level is changing because (music) industry grads are getting not just jobs, but high- 
paying jobs, especially as we work in tandem with other programs," said DiGiallonardo. ■

daily grind 

The newest Java hot spot 

"Two lattes, one raspberry croissant and one plain," was the order from a leather-clad couple escaping 
the icy weather for a few moments. Many were drawn to the new downtown coffee shop, enjoying the quiet, 
homey atmosphere and tasty treats. The perfect place for a quick pick-me-up or a warm meal to accompany 
a study session, the Daily Grind Coffeehouse offered a new spin on Java options for both locals and students 
after moving from across South Main Street to Court Square in May of 2001 . 

The Daily Grind was not just a place for coffee. Along with a variety of 45 flavored smoothies and 
other specialty drinks, there was also an assortment of sandwiches, salads, and baked goods that contributed 
to the enticing aroma that filled the cozy shop. According to employee Alexis Kacho, a junior who worked at 
the coffee shop for a semester, the most popular menu items were the Panini bread sandwiches and the chai- 
flavored drinks. "The smoothies are so good, they're the only thing 1 would pay money for! And the Paninis 
are really good too," Kacho said. 

With competition just on the other side of the square, seniors Beth Maskey and Laura Gilstrap 
explained that they preferred this place for Java because the coffee was superior and it was better for studying 
than other coffeehouses because of its quiet atmosphere. When asked what drink they enjoyed most, they 
answered in unison, "the lattes." 

The Daily Grind attracted varied mix of customers, from Harrisonburg professionals to university 
professors. The integrated mix made for a more interesting dining experience. "It's charming," Gilstrap 
enthused. The charming atmosphere may have come from the street-lamp-like light fixtures on the warm 
beige walls, or the baked goodies lining doily-covered shelves in the pastry display case. There was a certain 
ambiance that Maskey and Gilstrap appeared to be drawn to at The Daily Grind. They commented that the 
atmosphere was quiet and peaceful, yet much more bright and lively than the library. 

According to Daily Grind employees, juniors Brooke Poerstel and Patricia St. Clair, the coffee shop 
got a lot of regulars who worked nearby in downtown Harrisonburg. They felt that the addition of the 
coffeehouse to the downtown scene was very welcome because of the limited dining options for the businessmen 
and women working in close proximity. At times, live music could be heard from the street corner outside the 
coffee shop. Poerstel and St. Clair said when there was live music, "We typically fill up with a mix of community 
members as well as university students who come to listen." 

While many coffee shops came and went, the Daily Grind Coffeehouse found success in the Java 
business. Many saw a good balance between cuisine, atmosphere and availability and were confident in the 
lasting power of the shop. ■

Fifteen girls under one roof show the true 
meaning of friendship 

While some students had their hands full with one or two roommates, that was nothing 
tor the girls who lived at 501 South High Street. A total of 15 girls lived under one roof in the 
house, simply known as 501. The residence had been occupied for years, so long that none of the 

current housemates knew when students 
first started living there. "Last year was 
the first year the house became a Christian 
house but we wanted to keep calling it 
50 1 because students know where that is, 
said senior Courtney Johnson. "Most 
people know that 1 5 girls live here and if 
they don't think it's insane, thev find it 
awesome," Johnson continued. "The 
house itself is made up of four sections, 
so if the people in section D don't know 
those in section A it is conducive to 
privacy. This year and last vear we all knew 
each other so we tried to be as unified as 
Of course with so many girls living in one place, it was inevitable that small problems 
would arise. "We fight about dishes piling up in the sink, and parking in the back, because if we 
don't park right next to each other, we run out of room, and then someone comes home and 
doesn't have a place to park," said senior Amy Rohrer. But most problems were "quickly resolved 
and forgiven, " added Johnson. "We all have a common bond as people who love the Lord and 
seek Him out," said senior Kerri Hutchinson. " I think that when anything happens or when we 
do have problems that is something that really holds us together and keeps us united." 

In spite of the occasional conflict, the girls enjoyed having so many people living together. 
According to Rohrer, "All of my best friends live here. It's big enough that there's always something 
going on, but separated enough that I can get away to get wotk done if I need to. 1 never have to 
go tar to find someone to talk to. 

Numerous visitors came and went through the house, so the girls at 501 developed a 
special tradition for their guests. "We have a clock in our kitchen that's a chalkboard, and we all 
have our names on it," Rohrer explained. "Our friends that come over often get to erase a number 
on the clock and put their names in that space. We tell them that they have to come visit at least 
once every five days to keep their name on the clock. It's gotten to be a pretty big thing with 
people, wanting to put their names on the clock, and making sure they show up at least once even' 
five days. We've even erased a couple of names ot delinquent visitors," laughed Rohrer. 

All ot the girls enjoyed their stay at 501. According to Hutchinson, "I think the best part 
is just how unique my experience has been. I wouldn't have traded it tor anything, and will always 
look back with great memories. ■

Students wear the latest fashions in 
footwear around campus 

Black. White. Pink. Denim. Platform. Flats. J. Crew. Reefs. The list of flip-flops that 
could be seen around campus goes on and on. The flip-flop trend continued to appear year after 
year, and seemed to grow in popularity each season. 

Flip-flops could be worn with anything from shorts to skirts, and to any location, including 
classes, parties, and the mall. Convenience was a major factor in the choice of footwear. Instead 
of being late to class trying to tie a pair of tennis shoes, students could just slip on a pair of flip- 
flops. These shoes appeared in both simple and flashy trends, depending on the time of day and 
the personality of the wearer. Favorite pairs took precedence as well; although students' closets 
were stocked with various styles and colors of flip-flops, many ended up wearing the same pair 
every day. 

Checking out the feet that were sporting these flip-flops, also known as "thongs," one 
could see toes painted in an array of colors. Many feet also displayed another accessory, the toe 
ring. Freshman Lindsey Hicks said, "they add to the style. I wear a toe ring all the time. 

Despite the convenience and stylishness of flip-flops, there were disadvantages as well, 
including blisters, sandal tans, lines on feet from speed-walking, and of course difficulty in running. 
White flip-flops were deemed the "worst idea ever" by many students. "After about the first two 
wears, they aren't white anymore," said Hicks, "but instead a yellowish-brown color, and don't look 
very good." 

Flip-flops didn't get the boot even when fall came and the weather grew colder. The 
trend continued throughout the winter until a blanket of snow covered the ground and toes were 
red and frozen. On rainv days, however, most students left their flip-flops at home and opted for 
closed shoes to avoid the 'flicked mud' effect on the back of their pants. 

Due to the flimsy nature of the shoe, it was not a rare occurrence for a flip-flop to 
become damaged while walking around campus. Senior April Gregor said, "I was walking home 
from D-Hall when my flip-flop broke. The thong part came out of the flip-flop. I just took it off, 
threw it away, and walked the rest of the way home barefoot." Another time, Gregor was walking 
home in the dark and actually lost her shoe. She continued home that night and went back the 
next day when it was light out and retrieved the run away shoe. Various students could be seen 
walking to class carrying their flip-flips, possibly because of an experience similar to Gregor's. 

Despite a tew unfortunate flip-flop incidents, the style remained popular throughout 
the year and added flair to students' attire. ■

colors and patterns, 
flip flops take fashion 
by storm. Sold year- 
round and serving 
from shower shoes to 
the most popular 
footwear, flip flips 
were a major trend.

The Green Valley Bookfair offers bargain 
bestsellers to the Harrisonburg Community 

Just five exits south on Interstate 81 in Mount Crawford, Va., the Green Valley Book Fair featured 
500,000 new books at a savings of 60 to 90 percent off retail. The fair began as a used book sale in the barn 
of Leighton and Kathryn Evans. "The first [book fair] I believe was in the fall of 1971," recalled their son, lair 
co-manager Michael Evans. The fair then moved into a climate-controlled building, totaling over 25,000 
square feet. Its three floors of showroom space were filled with over 40 categories of new books for sale. 

With a selection including children's books, cooking, gardening, fiction, literature, reference, business 
and computer books, history, religion, philosophy, art, sports, health, self-help, biographies and more, the 
book fair offered choices for everyone. "Price and selection, I never know which is more important to folks," 
Evans said. "Selection a lot of times was what attracts people and brings them back, while our low prices are 
the hook." The list of titles for sale changed with each date, bringing customers back to see what new books 
had arrived. 

Books were purchased from several wholesalers who bought large lots of publisher's returns. Since 
the books were returns, the wholesalers usually provided no list of titles to choose from, resulting in an 

eclectic selection. Evans usually bought a truckload at random, saying, "Not 
knowing what's coming is actually quite fun. Many times we get a book and 
do not think it is going to sell, but it sells out in two days." 

Since the books were bought by the truckload, the prices were kept 
low. "Average price for a softcover falls between $3.50-$4, hardcover probably 
$5-$6 area," said Evans. Junior Tom Darrow agreed, "I didn't see any books 
more than $7." Junior Sarah Davelaar said, "The Green Valley Book Fair is 
great because instead of getting just one book for 30 some dollars, I can get 
seven books." Cashier Karen Boyers added, "Someone can walk out with one 
book or someone can walk out with 50." 

The fair drew people from all over. "We get a lot of people regularly 
from states around Virginia," explained Evans. Travelers from New York and 
New Jersey came through on their vacations during the summer. The Green 
Valley Book Fair had 41,000 on its mailing list, with people as far away as 
Panama and Scotland making trips. 

Students were also attracted to the fair, although it did not feature 

textbooks. "They have a great variety of children's books," said elementary 

education major Emilv English. Evans admitted, "We've been tempted to think 

we could do a book fair on children's books alone." English, literature and 

history majors could also benefit by checking out the fair. "Every now and then we have a title for a university 

class," said Evans. 

Even random browsers were sure to find something of interest for themselves or someone else. 
"Students come to buy Christmas presents or bring parents for visits," said Evans. The fair featured many 
New York Times Bestsellers and other award-winning novels. "You can easily get all the books you'll read for a 

year there," said Darrow.

There was only one character at the university that 

happily lived in a doghouse. He was also the only animal allowed 

to enter campus events. This was none other than the school 

mascot, Duke Dog. The big, loveable bundle of spirit was all 

over the place at sporting events and other activities on campus, 

entertaining students, athletes and parents. Despite his popularity 

as a school icon, many pondered the identity of Duke Dog under 

the costume. 

"You see Duke Dog at all the sporting events 
because he is there raising support and excitement 

for our athletes," said junior Christopher Nahlik. Duke Dogs main role at the university was to 
bring school spirit. Whether it was jumping into a crowd of people, stealing the opposing team's 
cheerleaders, or throwing tree t-shirts, the Duke Dog always brought laughter and cheer to any 
crowd. Whether the Dukes won or lost, many students said that thev appreciated Duke Dogs 
constant school pride and enthusiasm. "The Duke dog is awesome, especially when he does all 
those push-ups at the football games, junior Lauren Schuman said of the university pooch. "He's 
a big flirt. He always hits on me and my friends at the basketball games, she added. 

The Duke Dog definitely had some fun of his own at the sporting events. He was known 
to fight the mascots of the opposing team. He always won the battles, especially against wildcats, 
panthers, or any other type of feline. When they would steal one ot the Dukes" cheerleaders, Duke 

Dog would put up his paws and fight for her rescue. Duke Dog could also be seen joining the students in the 

stands and sometimes he would even make fun of them in a friendly playful puppy way. "I think he's great. 

He's better than a lot of other school mascots! ltd be fun to have his job and pick on people without them 

ever knowing who I am," said junior Shannon Adcock. 

Other students added that seeing Duke Dog always cheered them up because even if Duke Dog 

was upset when the Dukes were losing he always made the best of it and showed his team spirit and 

sportsmanship. "Duke Dog is always good to look forward to. He's there whether we win or lose," said junior 

Brett Sterlacci. Just like students had visitors on Parent's Weekend, the bulldog's family would join the 

excitement of the day as well. Duke Dog would walk around introducing his parents and little brother to the 

student body, but never forgot his duties as the head cheerleader. 

Duke Dog was a free-loving character that pumped up crowds and proudly represented the university. 

This mystery' of his identity behind his mask remained unsolved and the true facade ot man's best friend was 

never revealed. Duke Dog's hidden identity did not seem to hinder students in their love for him and what 

he brought to the university. Nahlik said, "He's important because he brings unity to the school. Everyone 

Even the rival team 
loves the Duke Dog.

alternative to campus activities 

With tests, projects and papers, students often felt the urge to get 
away from Harrisonburg and leave all their work behind them. Camping 
was a popular activity for students who needed to take a break from the 
usual party and work scene at school. 

"We just decided to go one weekend," said junior Alaina Sadick. "So we rented all the stuff from 
UREC and hit the road. I had an idea of where we wanted to head but overall we had absolutely no clue 
where to camp. We ended up driving up this cliff for awhile, until we realized we weren't going anywhere. So 
we turned around and at the bottom of the mountain was this great spot. We had the best time." 

Camping could take a lot of planning. Items such as sleeping bags, tents, and maps were rented tor 
a deposit of $25 at UREC. However, these rented out fast during the warmer months and students needed to 
get them the Thursday before they went camping. On the other hand, camping was easy to plan if someone 
else did the work. Junior Calley Wiest said, "I went camping with my fiance and two good friends the 
weekend before Halloween. The boys planned everything. It was great. We even went in a haunted house and 
did a hayride." 

Food, water, toilet paper and medical supplies were necessary for a good camping trip. "We had 
plenty of food and drinks," said Sadick. "We also remembered to bring a flash light which was so important 
once the sun went down because you could not see anything a few feet from the fire." 

"We had plenty of marshmallows and hotdogs, which made the whole camping experience great," 
said Wiest. But, even the best camping trips always had some problems. "It did take several tries to get the fire 
going because all the wood was wet," Wiest added. 

Camping could also be dangerous at times. Students were advised to be careful since there were 
many wild animals in the Shenandoah Valley. Sophomore Jamie Ferrer remembered one time a camping trip 
turned scary. "We were in Roanoke and me and Kate Pazdan went up to see the sunset. So by the time we 
were walking down the mountain it was dark. We only had this little flashlight and I thought I saw something 
up ahead. As we got closer we realized it was this huge black bear that was like seven or eight feet tall. We 
backed up very slowly and waited 30 minutes. We start to head back again and then we saw that same bear. 
It was so scary. I yelled at it and it went away. We still had about another hour hike so the whole way down we 
just yelled, stomped our feet and made noises hoping to keep the bears away," Ferrer said. Pazdan added, 
" I hat was the most terrifying thing ever." However, when asked if they would still go camping again, it was 
a definite yes from both of them. 

With friends, food, and the chance of adventure, camping was a great escape tor many students. 
Said Sadick, "1 have made some of my best memories from camping with everyone." ■

may i see some i.d.? 

Former bouncer shares his 
experiences before teaching 

"This class is definitely not typical," said sophomore Shannon Allen of her 
Interpersonal Skills class, taught by Dr. Brian Miller. "Dr. Miller takes a class that can 
sometimes be redundant and makes it fun and interesting. He relates a lot of our topic 
to something we've done in the past and down on a level we can understand more 
readily than just having to read it from a text book." 

The encouragement Miller brought his students stemmed from his personal 
love of continuing education. "I never knew what I wanted to do," he said, "except that 
I wanted to be smarter. To do this I stayed in school... a long time. My bachelors 
degree took me 16 years of on-again, off-again enrollment and 246 credit hours to 
earn." Nearing the end of that long effort, he was persuaded by a professor to pursue an 
M.B.A. Immediately after that, Miller went for his Ph.D., which he completed in four 
years. Following the completion of his doctorate, he took a position at the university. 

The road to professorship was long and winding for this educator, including 

many unrelated jobs and bends in the road. Miller said, "I worked for three years as a 

computer operator in the check processing department of a bank. I worked for nine 

years as a bouncer, bar-back, bartender, and nightclub manager in several bars. I worked for a year and a half , , . 

as a personal fitness instructor in two health clubs. I worked six years as a graduate assistant, research assistant, grade some papers. 

The former bouncer 
teaching fellow, and adjunct professor in two universities." 

Miller credited most of the lessons he learned in the business world to his years spent as a bouncer. 
"To begin with," he said, "first impressions are the most important part of the customer experience. My job 
as a bouncer was garnered by the following statement in answer to an employer's question as to why they 
should hire me. My response was, 'because I am the first and last person that every customer sees. I must give 
a good impression because each customer will, to some degree, base their impression of this business on me." 

"My second 'bouncer' lesson was regarding customer relations," Miller continued. "Specifically, 
VIP status is not demanded; it is earned or bestowed. This premise was first elucidated me by an irate 
customer insisting, 'Don't you know who I am? I'm a VIP!' If a customer has to inform an employee that they 
are truly special, they must not be, or the employee would know to treat them specially." 

"My third lesson concerns employee problem-solving. Whenever someone engaged in violence in 
the bar, my job was to get that person outside as quickly as possible and then return to the scene and make 
sure that everyone was alright and to soothe their impressions of the ordeal. This was often facilitated by a 
round of free drinks, or simply shrugging my shoulders as if the episode was 'de rigueur', or all part of a 
night's work. In the business world, this skill will manifest itself as an ability to quickly solve problems and 
then to surreptitiously minimize their impact on those that it might affect." 

Miller's 'Lessons From a Bouncer' crept up in his life many other times. In addition to those lessons 
came another significant message which he passed on to his students. "Find something that you are truly 
passionate about," he said. "Many people stumble through life never being quite sure what it is they want to 
do with that life." As for himself, Miller said, "I couldn't be happier and feel certain that I have found my 
passion." ■

"Has anyone ever told you you look like. .." was a common question heard by three 
students all too often. As these students experienced, being reminded frequently that one resembles 
a celebrity could be flattering but also annoying at times. 

Many of these celebriry-look-a-likes were taken aback the first time they heard someone 
refer to them as looking like someone famous. According to junior Julianne Zavacky, "I think the 
first time I was told that I looked like Courtney Love was sometime in high school. Sophomore 
year I started curling my hair more often, and that is when the Shakira thing kicked in." 

Senior Stephanie Nightlinger, told by many that she resembled Barbie, said "it's kind 
of flattering. I mean, hey, even though she's plastic and basically the voodoo doll of all feminists, 
she's still cute, right?" Even so, Nightlinger heard the comment more often than she would have 
liked. "What's really weird is I'll be walking on campus and hear a random, 'Yo, Barbie!' from a 
total stranger," she said. 

With more than a passing resemblance to movie star Tom Cruise, sophomore David 
Schrock said he was used to the stares and comments. "The only thing I don't like is when they 
actually perceive me differently than a normal person, as if I have some actual relation with Tom 
Cruise," Schrock said. At times, people did actually confuse these students with the real thing. 
Said Schrock, "I was in D.C. with some friends during the middle of the day, and as we were 
approaching a group of teenage guys, I noticed they were really staring at me. To my surprise when 
I reached about 10 feet from them one of the guys exclaimed at the top of his lungs, Awwwww 
man! Look it's MI2!"' 

Zavacky heard the comment often in social settings, such as parties. She said, "At at 
party last year I had decided to curl my hair, and was wearing leopard print pants. I was waiting 
in line and two guys almost got in front of me when I heard one of them say, 'Naw man, let 
Shakira go first.' This prompted me to turn around and respond to the comment, and it started 
an entire conversation about my looking like Shakira. The guy even said at one point 'Hey... can 
you do that hip thing? (pause) Well what if I do it first?' Now that was the best line ever." 

In Nightlinger's case, it was not quite practical for her to actually be confused with 
Barbie. "I think it might be pretty hard to confuse us, considering she's plastic and all, but my 
friends had way too much fun with that Barbie song that came out when I was in high school.' 
What I want to know though is when do I get my Ken and my pink convertible?" 

Despite the flattery that came with being a look-a-like, there were also some downfalls. 
According to Schrock, "Just because some people might think someone looks like somebody else 
doesn't mean that the person who is called the "look-a-like" believes that he or she actually looks 
like that person. Why do I say this? Because, for the last time, I will not shout at the top of my 
lungs, 'show me the money' nor will I parade around your room in tightie-whities while lip- 
syncing to Bob Seger. ■

Dukes don their costumes 
for frightful fun

night of trick-or- 
treating. Dressing up 
on Halloween was a 
popular practice for 
students. ■ Photo by AH 

I Halloween was the one day in the \ ear when it was more than 

1 okay to dress up as something scary, funny, or just plain crazy. It was not 

M unusual to see witches, clowns and princesses roaming throughout campus. 

■ The Halloween tradition of dressing up was not just left to elementary - 

_l - ^ ' *■*■ schoolers, but university students got into the celebration as well. 

Students got ideas tor their costumes in many different ways. "I was a 
guy straight out of the 80s in a warm up suit with an afro, jammin to some old school rap on a portable 
boom box," said senior Tim Boxeth. "I chose it because it was easy and would be fun. I didnt reallv put much 
thought into what I would dress up as, so I didn't really think of being anything else." 

"I dressed up as Wayne Campbell from Wayne's World. I love the movie Wayne's World," said 
senior Jerry Doyle. " When I was a freshman I dressed up as Garth and my roommate was Wayne, so I gave 
Wayne a try this vear." 

Finding the materials for costumes was not a problem for most students. "I made my costume from 
stuff I already had so that I wouldn't have to spend any money," Boxeth said. Senior Michael Jaycox purchased 
his costume "from Wal-Mart of course." In his costume. Jaycox called himself Homey D. Clown. "I had 
considered dressing up as Eminem, I even went as far as to dye my hair blonde. But I told my friend last year 
that I would dress up as Homev. and Homev is 'da man." 

Halloween was a way to attract attention from classmates. According to Boxeth, "the best part of 
Halloween was dressing up and walking around campus. As a guy from the '80s I got lots of laughs high fives 
and compliments." Boxeth was one of the many who received stares from other student throughout the day. 
"Most people just laughed at my clown costume. One girl even told me that I was her new best friend! But 
the main reason I dressed up was because of the contest we had at PC Dukes. I was the student manager, and 
we had a contest for the best costume. It was a lot of fun. Customers chose the winners who were then 
awarded various prizes." 

The fun didn't end when classes were done for the day, but continued late into the night. Boxeth 
said, "I was a little disappointed at the number of people on campus who dressed up but it was still fun. I 
went to Highlawn that night, and that was crazy. A lot of people recognized me from class that day, and many 
people kept squeezing my nose. There were also guvs there dressed up as the 'sperm team'. That was pretty 
funny too." Halloween was a great time for students to take a trip back to childhood, dressing as crazily as 
the\' wanted tor one night of the year. ■

Thev had been sitting there for three weeks. Waiting in a corner of Warren Hall for 
someone to pick them up and take them home. Most students just walked on by and ignored 
them, but not junior Mike Surace. These five boxes, full of yearbooks, intrigued him. 

Surace walked past the boxes a few times and decided that since they were just sitting 
there and had not moved for days, they were public property. Surace picked up a box, which 
weighed about 50 pounds, and walked from Warren to ISAT. When he arrived at ISAT. he put the 
box in his roommate's car. Surace wanted to go back and pick up the other tour boxes that were 
left. With the help of his roommate, junior Justin Housenger, he drove up to Warren and piled the 
rest of the boxes in the car. "When he wanted to load them in the car, I went along with it okay, 
but we had to pull in the bus-lane. I wish I could have helped him earn' all the boxes, but instead 
I just kind of laughed at him for trying to do it as fast as he could," Housenger said. "It was riding 
pretty low," Surace said of the car with all the yearbooks weighing it down-. 

When they brought them back to their apartment, the boxes of books just sat there for a 
while before Surace could figure out what to do with all 50 books. Surace had no idea what to do 
until one day when he had a wild plan to build a coffee table out of them. A visit to Lowe's 
Hardware Store and Si 00 later, Surace was able to begin his project. "I built it by making stacks or 
books for all 4 legs, on top of that is the support tor the books, a piece of wood 49" x 28" x 1/2" 
thick. There is wood on all sides of the books and glass on top, completely encasing them," Surace 
said. Only 40 of the books were used in the table. "My roommates took a couple because they 
were too lazy to get one last year," Surace added. "It is now sitting pretty in my living room." 

Surace's friends all seemed to have the same reacrion when he told them about his coffee 
table. "Our two other roommates came home and saw all the books and weren't as surprised as I 
think most would have because it's something we can all expect from him," Housenger said. 
Surace added that, "Most people just laughed when I told them what I was going to do. It's a 
pretty random idea. Everyone was pretty excited though, and they all wanted to see it." Surace's 
creativity and initiative resulted in an innovative piece of memorabilia from his college years

Motor enthusiasts take 
driving to the next level 

"Madison Motorsports started as an idea we had as freshmen. 
We enjoved driving cars fast but did not have any legal venues to do so. We 
figured that a club could provide that opportunitv. said senior Gerald Irish. 
"The idea sat for awhile until I met Charming Preston (2002 alum). We 
started auto crossing and we attended our first professional race in September 
of 2000. We developed the idea for Madison Motorsports more, and bv 
the spring of 2001 we were ready to start the recognition process." 

In August 2001 Madison Motorsports officially became a chartered organization. "From the 
formation ot the club came the car show, a close membership with NASA (Nation Automotive Sports 
Association), and the love of mechanical metals," said sophomore Sean Schutte. 

Junior Michael Collins said, "I joined MM because I love cars and wanted to know how I could 
one day race. The best part about the club is meeting so many other people that are interested in motor sports, 
hearing their views, and sharing good times with them at the track and elsewhere. 

"The best part about this club is the members because without them this organization would 
have no backbone. As well as going to the races with others who share the same interests in pushing a car hard 
and smart," said Shutte. 

Irish agreed saving, "The best part of MM is being able to share this passion for racing with 
others. Channing and I probablv would have gotten into this anyway but it makes it so much more fulfilling 
to get new people into motorsports and to build new friendships because of it." 

Madison Motorsports came a long way since their first vear as a recognized organization. According 
to Irish, "In our first vear we volunteered as daggers at road races, hosted a car show, hosted an autocross on 
campus, crewed for amateur and professional race teams, and participated in numerous autocrosses and high 
performance driving schools. It was an incredible year of which I am very proud. We've built a small community 
in the club, and have made many friends outside of the university along the way. We hope to continue our 
success for years to come." 

The club was also able to enjoy the thrills of performance themselves. "During the races that I've 
been to, I've seen my share of exotic cars as well as experiencing the great thrills and challenges of driving in a 
performance bracket. Learning the great job of flagging for different events as well as understanding racing 
etiquette," said Shutte. 

Madison Motorsports built many fun memories together during their races. Said Collins, "One 
member in his first rally race in his brand new WRX flew past the finish line (not knowing he was supposed 
to come to a stop), and flew over a hill that he was not supposed to, caught air and ripped off his bumper. 
Since then, he has kept to track driving." Club members shared fun times together on and off the track, 
making Madison Motorsports a successful new organization, u CT^J— /l——j£.

"it's a bird, it's 
i M a plane..." 

Founders Justin and Pat bring their 
love of comics to campus 

Superman, Spiderman, X-men, vou name it; someone in the Heroes 

Incorporated Comic Book Club was bound to own one or all or these comic books. 

These superhero fans met to discuss comic books and design some of their own. Heroes 

Incorporated started its journev in the spring of 2002, headed up by juniors Patrick 

Bredland and Justin Busacca. Before Bredland and Busacca could even start up the 

club, they had to go through intensive training. "We had to go through a six week process with clubs and 

organizations," Bredland said. "Basically, we were just taught stuff on how to have our club run effectively 

without problems," Bredland added. 

Since the club was still in the starting phase, the two co-founders spent a lot of time trying to attract 
members. At least six different types of flyers were posted to advertise for the club. Bredland said that a lot of 
people thought that all they did was sit around and, "talk about comics, but we are really serious .with trying 
to design and write some of our own. We do talk about them, but while we are working on our own." Even 
if students were not avid comic book readers the members of the club were welcoming. "Some of the coolest 
members are the ones who don't know a lot and just want to learn," Busacca said. He added that since the 
release of the movie Spiderman, people had been more interested in knowing why Spiderman did certain 
things which helped bring more attention to their club. 

At a normal meeting, the group split up into two teams: writers and artists. The writers worked on 
the script, while the artists worked on the drawings for scripts that had already been decided on. As editor-in- 
chief of the writers, Busacca had the final sav. "I handle the basic outlining of the storv and the other writers 
come to me," he said. Busacca checked the writing over to make sure that all of the writers had the same ideas 
working together so the artists' job would be easier. 

The club's goal for the year was to get published. First they hoped to send out a teaser, which would 
be the first eight pages of the full comic book, to interest readers in the end product. The final goal tor the 
year was to publish a full book. According to Busacca, this was a difficult task since the number of club 
members was in constant flux. In addition to marketing on campus, the Blueridge Comic Book Store also 
offered to have the club's work sold there. 

Having loved comic books since elementary school, each comic book fan had their personal favorite. 
Bredland's was none other then the infamous Superman because, "he has every single power known to man. 
He's just that cool." Busacca's favorite was Wolverine from, "X-men," the first comic book collection he ever 
started. "He's not really a big guy and doesn't look like he could win a fight, but no matter what, he always 
defies the odds and comes out on top." Heroes Incorporated wanted to bring a new superhero to campus. 
"We are in the business of creating heroes," Busacca said. "Heroes are important to everybody. I find that we 
have a lack of heroes and I wanted to give the university their own heroes."

The Madison Grill offers fine 
dining with a campus twist 

It never hurt to have a little extra cash while 
in school to make the most of the college experience. 
In order to earn some money tor weekend 

entertainment (and books of course) many students opted to apply for a job on campus, particularly in 
Dining Services. For a few, the best and most rewarding jobs were found at Madison Grill, located on the 
fifth floor of Warren Hall. 

As with every job, there were positive and negative aspects to the Grill, but for most employees the 
good outweighed the bad. "The best part of my job is the laid back atmosphere. Most of the people that work 
there are students and most of the people that come in at night are students. It provides a great learning 
environment for people that are not very familiar with the restaurant business," said junior Jolie McGehee. 

Senior Philip Whitfield-Clark agreed. "The best part of working at Madison Grill is the easygoing 
atmosphere I share with my co-workers. Even though it gets busy, the staff remains collected and focused, 
making the job easier. The free meal is also nice." 

Of course, there was more to working at Madison Grill than waiting tables. Senior Jeffrey Fleischman 
said, "The best part of my job is menu development and creativity of the daily and weekly specials. I run the 
kitchen during the dinner shift. We can go in any direction my heart desires with a little planning. 

Employees enjoyed many perks to their job. "I wanted to work there because I've always waitressed, 
and I knew the servers there made good money. And because it is a campus job, I get weekends, holidays, and 
summers oft, which would not be the case if I worked at a restaurant oft campus," said junior Calley Wiest. 
Whitfield-Clark added, "I figured if I was going to work at an on-campus dining facility I had better work at 
the nicest one." 

The atmosphere also added to their enjoyment. According to junior Rebecca Brown, "It's very laid 
back, but we work hard. In the kitchen it's like a team, we have to work together to get the food out right. The 
management is also great; their good moods put everyone else in a good mood!" According to Fleischman, 
"The atmosphere at the MG is really relaxed, even when we are really busy and have to work extra fast, 
diligent and hard. We like to have fun at the Madison Grill while still holding attention to detail and taking 
the utmost pride in our food service." 

Embarrassments were not a rare experience, considering the many aspects involved in serving food. 
Said Brown, "Mv first day serving, I dropped a big bus pan full of plates and broke a few. Luckily it was 
towards the end of the shift, so there weren't many people in the restaurant, but I was still embarrassed!' 

Despite those few instances, the experience was a positive one. "It is fun to work at an upscale 
restaurant, but still have the perks of being on campus," added Wiest, "Plus, the food is really good!" ■

Virginia Gleason shows her 
devotion to dining at Dukes 

"She's definitely the friendliest card swiper. I'll purposely go 
to her line," said sophomore Rvan Ostrander ofVirginia Gleason, 
a PC Dukes employee for the past thirty years. According to 
freshman Mariah Schroen, "She always has something nice to 
say. I can always have a pleasant conversation with her." 

Virginia Gleason, originally from Buena Vista, Virginia 
began her career as a PC Dukes employee about thirty years ago, 
when her daughter was a freshman here. It was then that Gleason 
made the move from Buena Vista to Harrisonburg. In fact, both 
her son and daughter are university alumni. 

"I started as a card swiper, and throughout my career 
here have been both dining supervisor and serving supervisor. 
I've witnessed many changes throughout the years. I saw the 
building of Zane Showker, of ISAT, of many of the apartment 
complexes, and additions to the library." 

Gleason experienced many other changes during her time 
at the universitv as well, including various fashion phases. "I have seen the 'patches' phase, when 
kids couldn't wear enough of them. Then there was the see-through blouse phase, the miniskirts, 
and the unisex' vear when girls and boys dressed alike." 

Gleason was an employee when Dukes was moved from Taylor Hall to the Phillips 
Center Ballroom. "The students were allowed to drink there when we were located in Taylor Hall, 
so Thursday nights were always a big hit," said Gleason. "Halloween was always a lot of fun. The 
kids dressed up and it was a lot of fun. It was also a big mess to clean up, but I loved it." 

Gleason's favorite part of her job was seeing the students. She said, "The kids are the best 
part. They keep me young and going. Lots of graduates come back and visit me. One alumnus 
came back and said to me, 'There you are; right where I left you. I recognize kids each day. I'hev 
are all so nice." 

She also enjoyed working with the student employees. "The student employees are very 
good. Many times they used to start working as freshmen and work through until graduation. I 
got to know the students better when that would happen," said Gleason. 

Gleason had no plans of leaving her career any time soon. She said, "As long as my health 
holds up, I'll work here as long as I'm able. I've enjoyed my years here. If I hadn't 1 would not have 
stayed this long." ■

Basketball season begins 
with midnight madness 

Crowds scream, lights flash, purple and gold balloons float to the ceiling. What better way to kick 
offa season than with all of your tans going wild? After several years' absence. Midnight Madness was welcomed 
back by the university in full force. Midnight Madness was a way to kick off the basketball season for both 
the men's and women's teams. The first Midnight Madness event to ever take place was at the University of 
Man-land with coach Lefty Driesell, also former men's basketball coach at the university from 1988 to 1997. 
Since then, the craze has caught on all over the country. 

With about 3,000 people in attendance, the event was a hit. Starting at 10:30 p.m. at the Convocation 
Center, the crowd participated in many different contests. There was a three-point 
contest, dunk contest, raffle prizes, a ticket giveaway, and also a half-court shot contest 
with a full scholarship prize. After a video highlighting the previous season was shown 
to introduce the teams, they took the court and played a ten-minute game: first the 
women, then the men. Students seemed to think the events were entertaining and 
creative. "I think the slam dunk contest probably got the most reaction from the 
students," said senior Mark Hoskins, president of the Student Duke Club. "I think the 
starting line-up should be introduced like that at every game. The main lights being 
off and the spot light circling around the Convo would get everyone excited and loud." 
said Hoskins. 

Students weren't the only enthusiastic participants. The coaches enjoyed all 

the activities as well. Sherman Dillard, head coach of the men's team said, "I really 

enjoy the atmosphere of Midnight Madness. I truly believe this is an ideal way to tip 

off the new season each and even' year." 

Team members also got excited about Midnight Madness. Dillard said, "Our plavers enjov the fact Alpha Sl 9 ma A| P na 
5 & v ■ ' ■ sisters show their 

that their friends, fellow students, and some of the communin' folks attend Midnight Madness. It is called purple pride forthe 

l c cc- ■ i i r ii • i i i- i ■ i r basketball teams. 

tne first official practice, but for all intents and purposes what we try to accomplish is to give the tans a Groups competed in 

glimpse of the team bv introducing plavers and having various activities and a ven' limited scrimmage. The spirit competions to 

r ' ° r ' b ■ e welcome in the 2002- 

players enjoy the audience and I can sense their adrenaline flowing." According to Ernst, both teams look 2003 basketball 

forward to the Midnight Madness festivities. "It means that all the preseason workouts and anxiety held in Johnston 

can finally come out. The season is undenvay and games are about to start and that means it is our run tor the 

Colonial Athletic Association Championship. Who wouldn't be excited?" The head coach of the women's 

team. Bud Childers, said that Midnight Madness was "more of a 'basketball production.' Our team's part is 

just a small piece of the evening's activities, but they do enjoy the crowd and the energy," he said. 

The night did not necessarily reflect the season, but it displayed the teams' spirit and got the season 

underway. "I don't think one practice, one event, or one game will make or break a season, but I feel it is 

important that we have a positive beginning and I felt strongly that our Midnight Madness this year was 

otacdy that," Dillard said. Childers said, "I hope the students keep the enthusiasm for basketball they displayed 

at Midnight Madness. It would be tremendous if thev return to the games with that spirit." ■ rt / <- { — yf- /< y£-

operation santa claus 

Students reach out to needy children 
through donations 

Hundreds of studenrs piled into the Grafton-Stovall Theater for a 
break from studying tor finals to experience Operation Santa Claus. After a 
week-long collection of donations conducted by the Theta Chi order 
fraternity, students enjoyed live performances by various a cappella groups 
and a special appearance by Santa Claus himself. A toy or monev donation 
was required to receive admission into the theater. "I donated a toy because 
I was really excited about going to the toy store. 1 know that all kids love 
toys and since I am the youngest person in mv whole family and am 21, I 
never get to buy toys. I thought it would be fun!" said senior Christina 
Manz. Sophomore Julie Nagel chose to donate "a pack of fun glitter crayons 
because kids of any age enjoy coloring and the glitter made them extra fun!" 

Navarrete considered the idea of Operation Santa Claus to be quite 
novel. He said, "it achieves many goals at once. It cultivates JMU/ Dressed as Santa Claus, juniorTodd 

Harrisonburg relations, raises monev and gifts for local children, and gives students a positive studv break. Detveiler brin 9* animated Christmas 

° ' or. spirit to Operation Santa Claus. 

Overall, I am very happy with the event, as I feel that it is unique in its purpose and trulv reaches out to the Operation Santa Claus brought 

community." Senior Lisa Cecchini agreed with Navarrete. "I think most people want to give to the less 

fortunate especially around the holiday season, but really do not know what they can do. This is 

a small meaningful gesture accompanied with spiritual and physical rewards. It's a beautiftil thing 

to see so many students participate." 

Local families who were touched by the kindness of these students also attended the 
event. Cecchini said, "A lady who is a foster parent actually brought one of the foster children to 
the event. It was a tangible reminder of why we were doing this to begin with. It always helps to 
put everything into perspective." Navarrete experienced something similar. "At the end of the 
night, I was approached by a member of another foster children organization. They were so 
impressed with the night's event that they reached out for help in developing a 'Christmas in July' 
program. As of now, we are in the process of collaborating on our ideas." 

The best part of the night for the Operation Santa Claus committee was two-fold. "First," said 
Navarrete, "was how manv people came out to support the cause. The second was at the end of the night 
when we get to tally up everything that we've collected and hand it right over to social services. It's such a 
rewarding feeling and you can tell how proud each committee member is." 

Operation Santa Claus proved that many students held to the belief that it is more blessed to give 
than to receive. At the conclusion of the night, students were already ready for more. Stephanie Ashley 
commented, "Let's do it again next year!" ■

soul searching 

Intervarsity gets to the bottom 
of life's unanswered questions 

Whar is truth? Is there a God? What happens when you die? Deep questions, 
especially when asked by a stranger with a video camera. Students may have noticed 
fellow classmates being interviewed in various places around campus over the last three 
semesters. Several members or InterVarsiry Christian Fellowship conducted the 
interviews, which they dubbed "Man on the Street." IVCF is a national student 
organization whose goal is to share Christ's love on college campuses. "I think one 
aspect of loving people is listening to them," explained IVCF staff worker CJ Goeller. 
"[The interviews] help us better understand how to respond to people, where they are, 
with the truth of Jesus. They make us more sensitive in our approach," he said. 

Starting in the fall of 2001, three or four "Man on the Street" videos were 
produced each semester. A typical day of taping lasted from rwo to three hours. Goeller 
and Weber walked around campus in search of subjects, asking random students if 
they would mind answering a few questions. Their inquiries ranged from "What are 
you looking forward to this year?" to "Why don't people go to church?" to "Who is 
Jesus? " "People are generallv always receptive," Weber said. "It's a college campus, so 
the idea of talking about deep questions is open and even desired." 

The crew usually interviewed thirty to forty people in a given taping session, 
recording about one hour of footage total. "We try to be sure we ask men and women, 
and be racially and socially diverse as well," Goeller explained. "We want to represent 
the university." "We look for answers that are genuine and insightful, that seem to

After the footage had been compressed into a short video, complete with background music, the 
final tapes were shown at IVCF's Large Group meetings on Friday nights. In addition to better understanding 
their peers, the videos were also meant to help viewers ask themselves these important questions. "We 11 often 
run the question across the screen at the end of the video, to make people in the audience think about what 
their answer would be," junior Mike Donohue added. 

The method seemed to be effective. Several IVCF attendees felt that the tapes helped them gain 
perspective and better understand their peers. "[They're] showing what's out there in a reallv unique and 
creative way," said freshman Rachel McCray. "It confirms what I already believe by allowing me to compare 
it to what others believe," said freshman Rebekah Carter. 

The IVCF cameramen felt that the whole taping, editing, and viewing process helped satisfy- a need 
in the community for listening and for pondering life's deep questions. "They're questions we think about a 
lot, but don't often put into words," said Weber. ■ rf • , < t^ — yy

sneakin a peak 

Students get to preview the 
latest flicks for free 

A typical school night might find the commons rathet emptv, but when a 
sneak peek came to town, students swatmed around Grafton-Stovall Theatre. About 
three sneak peeks were brought to campus each semester, each attracting large crowds. 
With Grafton-Stovall's capacity of only 622 people, and an average of 700 to 750 
people expecting to view each flick, there was always some disappointment towards the 
back or the line for those students who did not make it in. Senior Anthony Marchegiano, 
president of the University Program Board (UPB) film committee, said "people 
constantly wait around outside after we tell them that the theatre is full, thinking that 

somehow seats are magically going to appear for them to sit in. People always try to bribe me and other 
people to letting them in" 

In order to avoid being turned away, many students chose to get in line hours before the movie was 
scheduled to begin. One of the first in line for the sneak peek ot "Red Dragon," on October 2nd, sophomore 
Lauren Greenfield said, "I got in line at 5 p.m., and the movie was supposed to begin 
at 10 p.m. 1 was surprised by how long the line got; I never expected it to go past 
Chick-Fil-A." Others chose to meet up with their friends in line so they would not be 
waiting for hours. Sophomore Zach Diaz said, "My friends got in line at 7:30, 1 joined 
them at about 9:15. I usually don't go to sneak peeks because they get so crowded." 
For those who were new to sneak peeks, a surprise was in store when thev decided to 
get in line just before the movie began, or sometimes even two hours before it was 
about to start. Sophomore Justin Gray said, "I was unable to get into Red Dragon. My 
group was about 30 people short of getting in to see it. I wouldn't say I was upset, just 
disappointed. I have been to previous free movie nights and if you get in line about an 

hour and a half before the movie starts, you normally get in. Next time I am just going to get in line two 
hours before the movie starts." 

Marchegiano's duty as president was to keep free sneak peeks coming to campus. "UPB has contacts 
with numerous marketing and advertising agencies, and we use these 'advance screenings' as a chance to 
advertise a product to the college students," he said. "So we keep an open dialogue with these agencies all 
year, hoping to get as many sneak previews as we can, because I know the student body enjoys free advance 

Lacking the sneak previews mob, 
Grafton Stovall served as an 
auditorium for speakers as well as 
movies. Showing movies at S2.50 a 
piece was a good opportunity for 
students on campus to have some 
entertainment on the weekends. ■

how do you plead? 

Robert Keefer provides legal advice to students in trouble 

"Educating the students helps everyone because it helps ensure that we retain 
our natural rights," said Robert Keefer, Esq., attorney at law. Keefer helped defend 
students in traffic, drug and alcohol-related offenses. Some of these violations included 
underage possession of alcohol, open container, drunk in public and driving under 
the influence. 

Keefer spent three semesters teaching a political science class at the university. 
"I really enjoyed teaching as it is sort of in my blood. What 1 find myself doing now 
is teaching students about their rights as described in the United States and Virginia 
Constitutions," Keefer said. Keefer said he did not realize the situation until a few 
years ago. "Martin Solomon," who was commonly known as Marry from 534-RIDE, 
"told me about the heavy policing of the students. When Mr. Solomon was arrested 
for giving students free rides to prevent drunk driving, I became involved. After I 
represented Mr. Solomon, I started working with the students." 

Attorneys, according to Keefer, had an obligation to inform and educate the 

____^_^3 community about their rights and freedoms. "If we allow ourselves to forget about our 

rights, we will lose them," he explained. Keefer added that if a student could understand 

what his or her free rights were when finished with school, than they would be able to 

help protect others and their natural rights. The passing of knowledge from himself to 

others, was Keefer's favorite part of his job. 

Keefer had set up a webpage at wunu.Iwantmylawyer.orgvfh.ext students could find his "I Want My 
Lawyer" cards. The cards included statements that Keefer suggested students use when put in bad situations 
with the police. Some of these statements included "I assert my Fifth Amendment," "I don't consent to any 
tests except under DUI implied consent," and "Don't question me." 

"Sometimes people do not understand what I am doing when I attempt to provide them with 
information. They become offended because they think I am accusing them of illegal acts. I am not." Keefer 
explained that he just wanted people to know why lames Madison made the Bill of Rights in our Constitution. 
"I enjoy teaching the students about their rights because in the present circumstances they see how 
these fundamental natural rights affect their everyday lives. It is sort of ironic that I am doing this at James 
Madison University as Madison was the father of the Bill of Rights." ■ tf! /> ^>~/g^ :£/£•?;

fraternity house, the 
girls added a Christmas 
touch during the 
winter season. ■ Photo

1 1 girls find 
faith and fun 
under one roof 

Eleven girls. Two bathrooms. One house. Would you be able to survive? The house at 657 Main 
Street was home to senior Jen Ackerman, and juniors Annie Provencher, Beth Sparrow, Betsy Keck, Crystal 
D'Elosua, Ellyn Galloway, Kathryn Dengler, Michelle Farino, Rebecca Hedger, Sarah Fletcher, and Trang 
Nyguen. Eleven girls with 1 1 different personalities, yet they all shared one thing in common, they could not 
imagine living anywhere but with each other. 

The girls, except for three, met in McGraw Long Hall their first year. Galloway knew the neighbors 
and they suggested the house next door, which was previously a fraternity house. Prior to the girls' move-in, 
Craig Smith, the landlord, made a lot of repairs to the three-story home. He refinished the hardwood floor on 
the main level, replaced all of the windows and some kitchen appliances, re-carpeted the attic, walled in 
Annie's room, repainted the exterior, and cleaned the basement. Upon moving in, the girls painted each room 
in the house a different color. There were six bedrooms for nine or the girls and the attic where two others 
lived. "We were overwhelmed with gifts and baked goods," Sparrow said about the week they moved in. The 
girls felt very safe in the house. "We know our neighbors and the people right behind us, and the landlord 
lives right across the street," Provencher said. Having Smith so close made them feel more comfortable 
because if there was a problem they could just walk across the street. 

The girls said they wanted to move into a house because of the atmosphere. It appealed to them 
more then moving into an apartment or staying on campus. "I like being able to hang out twenty-four seven 
with my best friends," Fletcher said. The girls enjoyed the extended support system that living with so many 
roommates created. "It is more of a sanctuary. Someone will always be there to comfort," Sparrow explained. 
They were afraid that so many people would get in the way of studying, but the house was so big that they 
could close their bedroom doors and leave the noise on the other side. Provencher said that she thought that 
was a definite advantage to not living in an apartment. "If you have people over in an apartment it affects 
everyone there," she said. 

The girls said they felt like adults, but retained the ability to goof-oft. One thing that they noticed 
early in the first semester was even though they were all best friends, they were never spending time together. 
So, to resolve this issue, they started having house meetings every Sunday and spending at least half an hour 
per night concentrating on one girl. Each girl had their own role; one to make sure everyone was included, 
one in charge of money, one to organize and so on. During their sessions each night, they would choose one 
girl to focus their attention on. They would do whatever she wanted to from watching a movie to painting 
nails. Sparrow said, "It's time to spend together each night to keep bonds." ■

dogs on the quad 

the quad's 
best friend 

The Quad serves as a fun spot 
for students and dogs alike 

On warm, sunny days, it was not uncommon to see a few dogs running 
around and playing on the Quad. Many students chose to have dogs in their apartments 
and houses off campus. These canine friends provided their owners with companionship 
and also brought smiles to the races of students who were catching some rays between classes. 

Though manv apartment complexes did not allow students to have dogs, 

some tenants found ways to sneak them in. Several landlords did allow tenants to have 

pets, however. Junior Rebekah Mevers said, "Mv landlords charged S25 a month in 

pet rent and normally a Si 50 pet deposit but they just waived that tor me when I told them that my fund 

were tieht and promised I would take eood care of [mv doe]." 

b r & e beautiful weather on 

A dog did not have enough room in a small apartment to run around and get exercise, so owners campus. Keeping his 

used the Quad as a place to tire the dogs out and let them run wild. Rosie, Meyers' seven-year-old golden not always easv 

retriever, preferred to stav close to her owner, although "on occasion, she likes to walk up to random people especially when he 

iri lil <ec j t0 unexpectedly 

just to say hi." Meyers brought Rosie to the Quad every Tuesday and Thursday when the weather was pleasant. 
Not only did this time provide some fun for Rosie, but it gave Meyers an excuse to study outside. 

When students brought their dogs to the Quad, they generally attracted a lot of attention from 
other students. On his first visit, Deuce, an eight-week-old lab and chow mix, was surrounded by people 
wanting to pet him. His owner, sophomore Viet Tran, did not have a backyard where Deuce could play, so he 
chose to hang out with him on campus.

dogs, both named

Most students welcomed the sight of dogs on the Quad. Sophomore Amy Johnson spent time on 
the Quad for a few hours every day and was greeted by dogs about twice a week. "It's cute when they run over 
to you," she said. Juniors Katie Knapp and Jamie van Devander agreed that dogs on the Quad were fun as 
long as owners cleaned up any messes. "It's cool to see the dogs do tricks, they give the Quad a fun atmosphere" 
said freshman Verena Sewberath-Misser. 

While dogs were usually an enjoyable diversion for people hanging out on the Quad, thev could get 
their owners into a bit of trouble at times. Sophomore Keith Derenouard said that his dog, Bailev, once ran 
over to and woke up someone who was taking a nap. Senior Jack Ward remembered a time when he was 
playing frisbee and a dog came up and stole it. In spite of the incident. Ward said, "I still play with the frisbee, 
and welcome dogs on the Quad." Tyson Brown once saw a guy playing fetch with his dog while another guy 
a few yards away was just talking to a friend and not paying attention to the dog. The ball rolled through the 
guy's legs, and the dog knocked the guy over trying to chase it. 

Despite a few incidents that were too playful for some, the dogs gave a fresh personality to the 
Quad. "People who live in apartments don't have many places to take their dogs," said Knapp, "thev were a 
welcome addition to the campus atmosphere." ■

Imagine spending everyday of summer vacation at Paramounts 
King's Dominion. That's exactly what junior Jason Peace did. Peace, a Music 
Education major, worked as a singer and dancer in the "Pop Show," a 
performance dedicated to current pop songs, at the King's Dominion theme 
park in Ashland, Virginia. Peace received what he claimed a wonderful 
experience by winning the audition. For "Pop Show," auditions were held 
in many places in and around the state of Virginia and even came to campus. 

Out of more than 100 singers and dancers who tried out, only six 
people were hired. Once he was hired. Peace had costume fittings and 
practices on the weekends, even while he was attending classes. "We learned 
the whole show three weeks in Mav before the show actually began," Peace 
said. "We also had clean-up rehearsals to keep the show at its best 
during the season." 

Peace's summer was very hectic, with only Tuesdays off each week. 
Each day his show was performed four times with the exception of Saturday 
when it was shown five times. Even though he spent all day at the theme 
park. Peace had very little time to actually enjoy the park attractions. "After 
we got off or before shifts we could ride the rides, but not while on the 
clock," he said. 

Peace said that his favorite part of the job was getting paid for 
what he loved to do. Besides singing and dancing, he enjoyed meeting all

the people involved. Peace said that his cast was quite pleasant and there was no animosity between any of so | os -^lory Days "by 

them. "It was quite an experience spending almost everv second of vour time with five other people vou Bruce Springsteen, 

junior Jason Peace 
didnt know before that summer." Peace felt that the job strengthened his career goals as well. "I want to makes his presence 

perform before 1 begin teaching music and this type of job helps vou build up your confidence as a 

performer," Peace said. 

A job like this could teach a singer how their voice could handle the pressure of performing. "Vocally, 
theme parks really do completely drain your voice, but in my case it strengthened it," 
Peace said. He admitted that it was difficult to sing four to five shows a dav with his 
best voice at all times. After the summer was over, Peace really noticed a positive 
change in his voice. 

The "Pop Show" featured a variety of todays hit music. Each person in the 
group had a certain number of solos. Peace had two, which were "Pacific Coast Partv" 
by Smashmouth and "Glory Days" by Bruce Springsteen. Other songs that the group 
performed included "Get the Party Started" by Pink, "Escape" by Enrique Iglesias, and 
"Can't Fight the Moonlight by Leanne Rimes. 

Peace recommended the job to anvone that had a desire to perform. "Vou 
have to be committed and willing to do a lot of hard work," he warned He planned on 
getting a similar job again in the following summer, "It not at King's Dominion then 
hopefully at another theme park or even on a cruise ship." ■

band profile 

squeaky clean 

The Shower Scene Band rocks out in the 'Burg 

"The best part about being in the band is two fold. First, I get to hang out with some rad guys and 
bang on my guitar and make noises with my mouth. Then, I get lots of girls because I wear my guitar real low 
at shows, which is awesome," said sophomore David Der. 

Der was the lead vocalist of the Shower Scene, a band that came together in February 2002. Der, 
along with junior bassist Kelly Ballard, senior drummer Matt Frazier, and sophomore guitarist Justin Karras 
of Bridgewater College, "currently practice wherever and whenever we can. Typically, it's somewhere in the 
Stone Gate apartment complex where Kellv and Matt live during the school year," said Der. 

The Shower Scene was formed after "my and Dave's other band broke up," said Ballard. "Once a 
name was established, we decided we'd be more of a band with other members, so we could play shows. 
However, it was not until the first weekend back at school for the fall semester of 2002 that we found a 
drummer, Matt Frazier, who would willingly play for us without us having to pay him. After rocking out 
trifecta style for a little bit, the band decided that a fourth was in order for a fuller sound. Dave and I then 
found a certain Justin Karras." 

According to Ballard, "we originally called ourselves Now Playing, but decided to think of better 
names. We were briefly called Milhouse, then Second Best, until we found out that name was taken. After 
Second Best we went with Ben Riley, and finally, the name that has stuck for the last five months was the 
Shower Scene, named after the first track of Brand New, a favorite band of David and myself." 

The Shower Scene played a variety of music, both their own sounds and covers of other famous 
bands. "The Shower Scene is a pop-punk sensation with influences from New Found Glory, Blink 182, 
Home Grown, Michelle Branch, and Chris Kirkpatrick of N'SYNC," said Frazier. "We also cover some 
familiar punk songs as well as put our own twist on songs such as 'For the Longest Time' by Billy Joel, 'All You 
Wanted' by Michelle Branch, and 'My Girl' by The Temptations."

"Our original material follows suit to much of the rising 
modern pop-punk style with ripping leads, rockin' progressions, 
bust-out drumlines, thumpin' bass, and diverse and harmonious 
vocals," said Karras. 

From the start of their career together, the Shower 
Scene attracted attention from many students. Junior Eric Golub 
said, "It's refreshing to hear a band that is driven purely by passion 
and excitement. The Shower Scene has a great stage presence, 
and it's a show you truly don't want to miss." 

Along with the pleasure of being able to entertain 
students campus-wide, the Shower Scene made lite-long 
memories. "One time we were playing at this party, and this girl 
came up to Kelly in the middle of a song as he was singing and started yelling at him and telling him he 
sounded great. He bravely tried to play on, but she kept insisting that our band was awesome and that we 
had nothing to worry about. After about two minutes of listening to this girl and trying to sing and play at 
the same time, Kelly decided to end the song after the girl told him she was going to have her way with him 
later that night, and that was that," said Frazier. 

Growing pains and strange situations included, the Shower Scene enjoyed their rising popularity. 
Ballard said, "The best is doing something that I love, and having a good time doing it. I get to rock out with 
my friends, and play music that I care about. The girls are a plus too. They love the rock stars." ■

When Lindsay Adrean was a sophomore, she saw an advertisement in Keezell 
Hall tor spending a semester at sea. "I was attracted to the ad because or the picture of 
the sailboat. Sailing is my thing. I had never done it before, but I had always wanted to 
learn more about it and learn how to actually sail." said Adrean. 

Adrean replied to the advertisement, and was sent information about the semester, 
and everything that she would be able to experience. "I would be able to study 
oceanographv, maritime studies, and nautical science, which is learning about the ocean 
and how to sail," said Adrean. She then filled out the application "similar to that of a 
college application with about five questions mainlv about why I was interested, and I 
had to include references from professors." 

After submitting the application, she later received a phone call about her 
acceptance into the program. "It was about 10 a.m. on a weekday morning, 1 think it 
was a Tuesday, and the phone rang," said Adrean. "Both my roommate and I were 
asleep, having come back from early classes. When I realized that 1 had been accepted, 
I started crving. Thev were tears of jov. I was both excited and relieved." 

Adrean spent two months of the next summer fulfilling her lifelong dream. "For 

the whole month of June, we lived in cottages in Cape Cod. There were twenty-five 

students altogether. There was a lot of work and not a lot of free time, but it was very 

motivating because everyone was working on the same thing. It could be 2 a.m. on a Saturday night and I was 

studying, but it was okav, because so was everyone else. 

"At the end of June, we flew out to Tacoma, Washington, and then began the actual sailing part of 
the semester. Our trip took us to Sitka, Alaska and back. I was able to see so much wildlife. I saw killer whales, 
humpback whales, and a few bald eagles which was cool because they are endangered. 

"We went hiking through a temperate rain forest, and were able to stop at an abandoned Indian 
village and I saw totem poles that were actually still standing. Then we stopped at a museum in Vancouver 
where we could see preserved totem poles. Those still had all the paint on them."

On the way back down to Tacoma, Washington, the group "was able 
to experience more real sailing than the way up because the wind was much 
stronger. We did not have to use die motor as much on the way home," said Adrean. 
It was not quite smooth sailing for the entire trip. According to Adrean, 
"there is an area near Washington, called the Straights of Juan de Fuca. The water 
was pretty rough because it is where the bay meets the ocean. I got seasick, as did 
a lot of the others. We nicknamed that area the 
Straights of Juan de Puka." 

The trip was organized through the Sea Education 
Association, which was accredited through Boston 
University. "The crew of the ship was made up of the 
25 students, a steward, an engineer, an oceanography 
professor, a maritime studies professor, a nautical 
science professor who was also the captain, and nine 
other crew members. All of the students had to be 
assistant steward and assistant engineer at least once, 
so everyone learned how to do everything. The 
students were split into three watches and we rotated 
throughout the day, a tew times a day. While on watch, 
four students were on deck and four were in the lab, 
doing different things, so we were constantly working." 
"The best part of the trip was actually learning 
how to sail," Adrean said. "Now on a sailboat I would 
be completely confident with doing anything. After 
going on the trip, I know now that this is what I 
want to do in lite. ■

zirkle house 


the house 
that art built 

Zirkle House features student art exhibits 

983 South Main Street was an art lover's paradise. Anything from sculptures 
and charcoals to paintings and papier mache could be found in one Harrisonburg 
house. Zirkle House, located across from the Quad, was a haven for many art majors 
and professors. 

For the past 30 years, Zirkle House has been one of the only student-run ■ 
galleries on the East Coast. The free-admission gallery was funded only by the donations 
it received. "This is for the students,' said junior Art major Rebecca Hedger. Zirkle 
House was open even' day but Sunday, when new exhibits were set up. Each exhibit 
consisted of two students' artwork and was displayed for two weeks. Although the 
gallery was open to all majors, primarily Art majors made use of Zirkle House as a 
place to show their creative abilities. 

Every other Monday, a big opening was held tor each two-person exhibit, 
attended by many professors and students. Attendance depended on the artists' publicity 
and invitations. Professor Barbara Lewis said that she most liked "the excitement it 
generated among the students. There was always a good turnout tor the openings." 

Students with exhibited work had to go through an extensive proposal process. Zirkle House held 
reviews for potential exhibitors once a semester. Students who wanted their work to be in a fall show had their 
reviews the spring before. Out of approximately 30 prospective exhibitors, only eight were picked for a given 
semester. Senior [Catherine Duffy a Fine Arts/ Art Education major, said that the first step or her review 
process was to become "excited and motivated to come up with an idea." After formulating their ideas, 
students brought in work that would appear in their exhibit to show their style. The Zirkle House director.

future director, future assistant director and graduate 
assistant reviewed the pieces. Duffy said the board 
questioned her about her "theme, plans on hanging. 
the number of works I want to include, the gallerv I 
wanted, and the point in the semester I wanted to have the show." 

After the review process the waiting began. Each candidate received a letter telling them if they had 
been chosen to have a show in Zirkle House. The students who received exhibit offers had to sign a contract 
agreeing to participation and a theme. There were no requirements for having art displaved in the gallerv. 
Students of any year or major could have a show, but it was usually only Art majors that seemed to take 
advantage of this opportunity. "Having a show is an accomplishment," said senior Art major Joshua Graver, 
who enjoyed painting and graphic design. "I just like being able to put images in rav head to something 
tangible," he said. 

Zirkle House proved to be a huge asset to the campus community. "It is a great way for art students 
to display their work and gives students an opportunity to view fellow students' work," Lewis said. Zirkle 
House had scrapbooks full of flyers, stories and other historical novelties to represent its activities with students. 
Duff}' said, "Art is the center of culture, there are so few places tor an artist to exhibit their work in this 
community. It is essential to support them, the artist and the gallery ■

tonic the hedgehog 

The video game comes to life for 
Corianne Bradley and her pet 

Dogs, cats, and fish seemed to be popular pets tor college students 
living in off-campus apartments. But sophomore Corianne Bradley had a 
pet a bit out of the ordinary: Tonic, a domesticated African hedgehog. An 
African hedgehog was an interbred combination or a white-bellied hedgehog 
and an Algerian hedgehog. 

Bradley realized how much she wanted a hedgehog after seeing a 
commercial on television. "There was a commercial for Sonic the Hedgehog 
that had real hedgehogs in it. I thought the commercial was hysterical and 
that hedgehogs were so cute," Bradley said. After telling her suitemates 
that she wanted one, it became an on-going joke between Bradley and her 
friends. A few weeks before returning to school, Bradley's boyfriend gave 
her an early birthday surprise; he had bought her a hedgehog. Tonic. "I was 
so excited," she remembered. 

Tonic was a nocturnal creature that was relatively quiet. 

Occasionally, Tonic made squeaking noises, but since he slept all day, the 

night hours were the only time he could be heard. Burrowing under his 

boxes, playing with his towels, or when he was eating were the only times Bradley heard him. Tonic ate a few Tonic the Hedgehog 

types of pellet foods, which contained all the basic nutrients he needed to live. Besides those foods, hedgehogs small but fiesty little 

could also eat vegetables, fruits, mealworms and insects. However, different owners gave their hedgehog pals fnen d.Tonic added an 

& & 6 &r African touch of the wild 

different diets. A lot of owners opted to give their hedgehogs cat food, which was also recommended for their diet, to sophomore Corianne

Tonic lived in a cage with a bedded bottom that was approximately the 
same size as one needed by a hamster or ferret. Bradley did not attempt to train 
Tonic to do tricks, but said she did litter train him. "They can't have cedar bedding 
because the aromatic oils can cause respirator)' illness or death in hedgehogs," Bradley 
explained. In addition, a hedgehog's cage could not be made out of wires because their feet would fall through. 
Since they were nocturnal creatures, they needed something to hide in or under during the day to keep them 
from getting nervous. They also had to be in a warm environment between 68 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit. "They 
need a lot of exercise, because they tend to become obese with inactivity," Bradlev added. Toy wheels were often 
recommended, but the)' had to be solid; il the hedgehog were to slip, a broken leg could easilv result. 

Financially speaking, Tonic proved to be a rather inexpensive pet. "The food and bedding are (airly 
inexpensive and a lot of the toys you can make out of stuff around the house, like cardboard boxes and things like 
that," Bradley said. "They are curious and love toys they can push around and chew on." The onlv costly part of 
owning a hedgehog, as with any other pet, were the veterinary visits. 

"He is really cute, especially his face and little tongue, and he has a soft belly," Bradlev said about her 
pet. "He's very easy to handle and very friendly, despite his spines," she added. "If you wake him up and startle 
him, he will ball up so only his spines show and puff out air to scare off the predator. But otherwise, if you stick 
your hand in the cage and let him sniff you, you can easily slip your hand under him and pick him up. Once he 
is awake and out of the cage, you can pet his back and he won't ball up or hiss. Tonic loves to run around and find 
places to hide in. I just think he's so cool and unique," said Bradley. ■ . _ .

Delta Sigma Pi remembers a brother with their annual seesaw-a-thon 

"This is the highlight of the fall semester. There is so much support from the other students," said 
Julie Lee, a senior finance major of the annual Delta Sigma Pi seesaw-a-thon. 

According to senior Ben Deutsch. who was in charge of the Delta Sigma Pi annual seesaw-a-thon, 
"Michael Matthew Brown was a brother of Delta Sigma Pi here and he passed away back in 1992. We give 
out a scholarship in his name each spring with money raised by this seesaw-a-thon. A portion of the proceeds 

are aJso donated to the American Cancer Society. This year it 
kicked off on November second at midnight and ended November 
eighth at midnight, for a total of 168 hours seesawed. The brothers 
of Delta Sigma Pi take one hour shifts seesawing day and night." 
The seesaw-a-thon attracted attention from more 
than just business students and alumni. "We raise anywhere from 
S600 to 53,000. In the past we've gotten contributions from large 
companies, such as the now deceased Arthur Anderson, and one 
year we got a grant from the SGA," said Deutsch. 

The fundraiser lasted seven days straight, twenty- 
four hours a day. "The shifts are an hour long each, but people in 
the fraternity will try and outdo each other and stay on for maybe 
seven hours straight. Alumni will drive two hours just to come 
and seesaw for an hour," said senior Courtney Langhauser. "It's 
all people in the fraternirv that seesaw, but we are allowed to seesaw with our boyfriends or girlfriends or our 
parents if we want to." 

Junior Nina Jackson said "It is such an awesome cause, but it can be painful on the butt. It takes a 
great commitment." According to Lee."the seesaw-a-thon ties you to the college community. There's great 
student support."

Much of this student support came at times when those on the seesaw needed 
it most; when it got late in the day and into the night. Langhauser said, 
"Random people will run up to Sheetz to buy us coffee, and we will have no 
idea who they are." Of course, when it was late the seesawers needed some 
entertainment. "At two or three in the morning, when there is nothing 
more to entertain us, we try to launch each other off of the seesaw. And 
sometimes we try to turn the seesaw in a full 360," said Langhauser. "There 
have been times when the seesawers have gotten crazy. People have fallen off 
doing such crazy things," added Lee. According to Jackson, "Last year the 
seesaw was kind of broken, so it didn't really move too much. We were told 
that if it completely broke to just stand next to it with our hands on it." 

The seesaw-a-thon became a well-known event by students on 
campus. According to Deutsch, "Delta Sigma Pi has tried in the past to 
keep the event as serious as possible. However, people like to have fun with 
it. Some seesawers have been egged, taunted, and even streaked. As of this 
year no one has egged the seesaw, thankfullv, but we're still waiting tor the streaking." 

Deutsch added, "It is an original event, and stands out among all 
other fundraisers. Everyone seems to notice the big purple seesaw. When you are on the seesaw during the 
busy times of the day on the Commons and see the students pass by you, you can see them smiling and 
laughing. Whether it's with you or at you is a whole different story." 

The seesaw-a-thon definitely made a name for itself Lee said, "many people don't know what Delta 
Sigma Pi is, but when you tell them about the seesaw they know exactly what you are talking about." ■

livin la vida loca 

Spanish professor Tomas Regalado-Lopez brings 
culture and fun into the classroom 

"I have so much fun in this class. It's a great time," said junior Kristin Goodine, 
of her Spanish class, taught by Mr. Tomas Regalado-Lopez. This young teacher was 
fairly new to the country, but already felt at home. Regalado-Lopez, from Salamanca, 
Spain, was the only member of his family living in the Unites States, so he considered 
his students to be his family. 

After graduating from the University of Salamanca in 2000, Regalado-Lopez 
immediately came to the university to start his teaching career. "I felt like a student 
who was teaching," said Regalado-Lopez. "It was reallv funnv for me to be known as 
Mr. Regalado-Lopez or to be addressed with formal treatments, such as the Spanish 
'Usted.'" Regalado-Lopez received his masters degree in literature and was working on 
his doctorate at the University of Salamanca. 

In addition to teaching Spanish, Regalado-Lopez was involved in other clubs 
and organizations around campus. "I am the faculty advisor of the Latino Student Alliance, 
I take part in the Faculty Friends program every year, I travel with students for the Alternative 
Spring Break, and I've gotten some awards I feel proud of, such as the 2001 Facultv 
Recognition Award from the Kappa Alpha Order fraternity." Regalado-Lopez said. 

The award came as no surprise, seeing how popular Regalado-Lopez was with 
students. "My classes are generallv full just after being offered; I don't know exactlv 
why. Girls probably expect to find a teacher like Antonio Banderas or Julio Iglesias." 
Regalado-Lopez spent most of his time devoted to his students and their interests. He said, "Sometimes 
I spend seven days a week doing things tor the school. But that is something I like." There were many things 
Regalado-Lopez looked forward to in his job. "Apart from sharing your knowledge with students. I think it is 
nice to teach them how to socialize with people, learn from everyone and try to reach vour goals in lite. Also, 
teachers are not the owners of knowledge, just people to discuss it and hear different opinions. I learn a lot 
from mv students; actuallv I am almost as voung as thev are, so it is easy to share their interests and concerns.

Probably the greatest satisfaction every semester is being able to tead the student's evaluations. " 

Regalado-Lopez claimed the worst part of his job was having to deny students overrides. "It's the 
only time in my life I've made someone cry," he said. Every semester he had about fifty requests for overrides. 
He said, "I had to sign one once while I was having dinner on a Saturday night in town; two days later my 
waitress had become my student." Another fact of life he found distasteful was heavy cell phone use. "I think 
they've changed human relationships for the worst. In Spain the)- are very widespread. I think even dogs have them." 
The Spanish professor's genes may have influenced his career choices. "My parents and sister and 
three aunts are all teachers of Spanish language and literature," Regalado-Lopez explained. When he was 
young, he wanted to be a soccer player. "Fortunately, I didn't become one; ever)' semester, when I plav the 
JMU World Cup Games (organized by the foreign students), people thank me for having changed my mind." 
Outside of the classroom, Regalado-Lopez enjoyed riding his bike, listening to bands such as Pink 
Floyd, Dire Straits, Belle and Sebastian, and reading novels, his favorite being "The Sound and the Fury" by 
William Faulkner. His money was spent traveling, having visited more than 35 countries, including Turkev, 
Cuba, Bulgaria, and Finland. When he was a college student, he backpacked through Europe with very little 
money. He believed "traveling is a part of your education too; you have to be a student your whole life. You 
cannot stop learning, reading, or visiting places. The more you travel, the bigger the world looks." Through 
his varied background and passion for life, Regalado-Lopez brought the world to his students. ■

the donkey show 

Megan Gwaltney has the inside scoop 
of MTV's hit show Jackass 

When Jackass: The Movie came out in October, it was not just another trip to 
the movies for sophomore Meghan Gwaltney. She had personal ties to the guys involved 
with the making of the film. Her brother, Nathan, known on the show as 'Knate,' 
filmed the show, and her cousin was P.J. Clapp, known as 'Johnny Knoxville.' 

"Growing up," said Gwaltney, "there wasn't much communication between 
P.J.'s family and mine because he grew up in Knoxville, Tennessee and my family has 
always lived in Virginia Beach. We probably met at a few family reunions, but you 
meet so many people you don't know at those things, most of the time you don't even 
make an attempt to remember names. It wasn't until Nathan got hired to film the show 
that we started keeping in touch with P.J. and his family. - ' 

Gwaltney's brother was interested in filming since he was three or four years 
old. "My brother was always videotaping everything. He started making movies when 
he was five years old, holding his transformers as they flew through the air, wearing a 
black ski mask with two black pens attached to the side as Batman, and many other 
creative concepts for movies. The whole family would be included of course. My dad 
was the evil monster, my mom the conniving beauty-turned-evil, and I was Cat Woman." 

"When he was really young he would run to my mom (and whoever else was 

in the house) and tell her she had to come into the kitchen where he had been 

watching television, Gwatlney continued. "He would then make her sit and watch 

the credits with him until they were completely finished. He thought the credits were as Johnn y ' la The movie generated from the popular 

show on MTV, "Jackass" ■ Photo courtesy of Megan Gwaltney 
the best part of every televsion show and movie, and never allowed anyone to change 

the channel or turn off the VCR until the credits were finished. It's strange, now that 

his name is in those credits.

With the surprise success of the show, Gwaltney's family, who had never 

watched MTV, began tuning in religiously. "My family is really conservative. My 

brothers and I were not allowed to watch MTV when we were younger. We weren't 

allowed to watch PG-13 movies until our 13th birthday. We weren't even allowed to 

watch some Nickelodeon shows because 'the brother and sister on Clarissa Explains It All treated each other Wampler Hall resident advisor sophomore Megan 

Gwaltney and her brother Knate remain out of the 
badly,' and You Can't Do That On Television was just off limits. As you can imagine, it was a little difficult for spotlight unlike their cousin, MTV Jackass star 

ir-i ii xt i Lfur i Johnny Knoxville. Although Knate worked behind 

the family to even know how to react. Now, not only was our cousin the star ol a show featuring stunts only 

a drunk would perform but also, my brother Knate would be there to witness it all." 

"Every Sunday night at 9:00 pm we would gather around the television in the living room to watch 
'The Donkey Show,' (That's what my mom called it tor the first few months because she couldn't bring 
herself to say jackass). While she was sometimes laughing and other times totally disgusted, this was my dad's 
type ol humor, so he was always cracking up. I think his favorite skit was when they were showing someone 
flicking the spring that catches the door Irom hitting the wall when it's opened. They would flick it and watch 
it fling back and forth until it stopped, then flick it again. My dad would just about die laughing." 

When the movie was released, Gwaltney and her family ventured out to the theater, not knowing 
what to expect. "The way I have been explaining it to my friends and family is, 'The funny parts are really 
funny, but the bad parts are really bad.' I wasn't quite prepared for someone eating their own 'yellow snow- 
cone." My mom and dad said they wanted to see it, and I knew my dad would like it, but I wasn't so sure my 
mom would feel the same way. Actually, I thought she was going to hate it. Surprisingly, they both enjoyed 
the movie and thought it was hilarious, so I guess they got past all the gross stuff." 

Nathan's dream of making movies did not end with the conclusion of Jackass. According to Gwaltney, 
"He has never stopped making movies and probably never will, even if they never reach the big screen, he'll 
always be pursuing his dreams." ■

Beep, beep, beep, beep. The annoying sound of your alarm clock waking you up to get ready for 
class. You run outside to hear the bus roaring by and starting chasing after it. You hear a friend call vou trom 
across the Quad to make a lunch dare. Could vou imagine not being able to hear any of these things? Hearing 
is one ot the five senses that we tended to take advantage of. This was a reality for sophomore sociology major 
Elizabeth Marshall Felvey, who was born with a hearing disability, but when she was four years old, Felvev's 
parents took a chance to help their daughter hear. 

In 1987, Felvey received a cochlear implant, a device that processes sound. At that time, the Food 
and Drug Administration (FDA) had not vet approved the implant and Felvey became one of the first 
children to ever receive the treatment. Approximately 35,000 people in the United States 
now have the cochlear implant, including the 1 995 Miss America, Heather Whitestone. 
The cochlear implant was surgically implanted into the inner ear and had an 
outside processor attached. \CTiereas hearing aids were used to amplify sound, the cochlear 
implant processed it. It was designed to help those with exceptional hearing loss perceive 
sound bv electrically stimulating the cochlea, the inner ear that contained the hearing 

The implant had five parts: the ear-level microphone, internal chip, transmitting 

coil, receiver/stimulator, and electrodes. The microphone picked up sound; the chip 

analyzed the sound and converted it into a digitized code, which then passed through 

the transmitting coil. The coil sent the code to the receiver/stimulator, which then sent the electrical energy 

to the electrodes to the cochlea. 

Felvey said that, "the implantation procedure was pretty long and time-consuming." Unfortunately, 
she had to get the implant twice. The first time, the doctor did not place it correctly and her body rejected it. 
This landed Felvey in the hospital with a hematoma, a localized swelling filled with blood. The second time

around, the surgery was successful, making it possible for Felvey to enter 
the world ot sound and intensive speech therapy. 

"My parents say that ever since 1 was born I could not stop babbling 
or trying to talk, so they knew I would want the Cochlear Implant," Felvey 
said. She also said even though she does not remember having hearing aids, 
they did not work for her. That was one of the main reasons her parents 
decided to take a chance with the new hearing device. 

Growing up, Felvey was in a regular classroom and also in a class 
for the hearing impaired. In fourth grade, she entered a Catholic school 
where she was the only hearing-impaired student and then transferred to 
another private school. Felvey took speech lessons up until the eighth grade. 
"I also naturally learned how to read lips from a young age, so I do relv 
some on lip reading when communicating," Felvey said. 

Even though she did not remember lite without the Cochlear 
Implant, Felvey said that it definitely made a positive impact on her life. "It 
has allowed me to communicate with people everyday, be independent, 
function in the hearing world without help, the list goes on and on. If I 
didnt have it, I would not be able to enjov sound. I would not be able to 
hear music and the many other beautiful sounds." ■

The caving club explores underground 
caverns in the Shenandoah Valley

The Madison University Student Grotto (MUSG), also known as the Caving Club, was formed in 
1979 as an offshoot from the Outing Club. The group allowed students to explore the Valley's underground 
while teaching important caving techniques, building confidence, and allowing students to connect with 
others who shared their interests. 

Caving trips were usually organized every week, visiting caves within an hour's drive from campus. 
An experienced student caver who was familiar with the location led each trip. Trips usually involved about 
three to six hours underground with a small group of four to 12 students, according to the MUSG web site 
at www.jmn. edw 'orgs/ 'caving. 

Taking trips with the club was relatively inexpensive. In return for $10 
yearly club dues, participants could "use club-owned equipment like helmets, 
headlamps, and vertical gear, and participate in unlimited trips and activities," 
according to club vice president, senior Kendall Whiteway. The only item not 
provided by the club was personal clothing. "Ideally someone should have sturdy 
clothes and good boots with a lug sole for caving," club advisor Carl Droms 
explained. "The temperature underground is 55 degrees year round, so you 
need to dress for that, keeping in mind that you'll be alternating between working 
hard and sitting still." 

Most of the caves visited by the club were privately owned, so landowner 
relations were an important issue. "We have to keep in mind that we're on 
someone else's property, and behave accordingly," Droms explained. "Some 
owners give 'standing permission' to visit their caves, and others want you to 
notify them every time. Unfortunately, some cavers don't abide by these rules, 
and caves have been closed because of their actions."

Due to the risks associated with the activity, caving required a great deal of 
communication and trust between participants. "In a cave, you often have to work together 
with other people to get where you're trying to go," Droms explained. "Members learn 
leadership skills, outdoor skills, and also interpersonal skills." Whiteway agreed that, 
"[Caving] teaches a greater respect for nature, and ideas like leaving no trace where vou have 
been. It can be challenging and makes people work together." Such dependence on others 
built trust among members and forged lifelong friendships. "A lot of the greatest people I 
have met during my four years here have been members of the cave club," Whitewav said. "I 
know alumni who graduated 20 years ago who still get together regularly," added Droms. 
Whiteway recalled one of her favorite trips with MUSG, to Marshall's Cave, about an hour from 
the university. "We left with 10 or 12 people around nine or 10 on a Thursday night and didn't get back to 
Harrisonburg until eight the next morning. We got out of the cave and jumped off the rope swing at Aqua 
Campground into the Bullpasture River, then caught a great sunrise and took pictures by a misty pasture. 
Some people just went straight to class covered in mud when we got back." 

Although caving trips made up the majoritv of the club's activities, Droms said that "occasionally 
someone will organize another kind of trip, such as whitewater rafting or rock climbing, and groups will also 
go camping together on weekend." Whiteway added, "In the years that I have been a member, we have 
done both horizontal and vertical caving, rock climbing, hiking, camping, canoeing, whitewater rafting, 
biking and skiing." 

Social activities were not left out of the MUSG calendar either. Annual events included a fall pig 
roast featuring caving, camping, bike trips, and swimming and boating in the Shenandoah River. Fall Ball 
and Spring Fling weekend trips were held each year, and the club also hosted a Halloween party in the fall and 
Banquet in February. 

The fall and spring weekend trips allowed members to grow closer while spending more time exploring 
the outdoors. Whiteway enjoyed her weekend experience immensely. "Last spring I went to Clover Hollow 
and Stayhigh Caves ouside of Blacksburg on our Spring Fling camping trip. "They involved rappelling down 
into the cave, then down a few other, minor drops once inside, then ascending back out on the rope. Stayhigh 
had an amazing waterfall running through the entire cave, and we climbed up it in various places on the way 
back. Afterwards, we got to go back to the bonfire and hot tub where we were camping. MUSG gave students 
the chance to explore the natural world of the Shenendoah Valley and make close friends at the same time. "The 
club gives you the opportunity to try some new things that you may not try otherwise, like caving or climbing 
or rafting," said Whiteway. "I know I can always find people to join in any kind of outdoor activity." ■

roommate relationships 

friend or foe? 

Roomate relationships put to the test 

While some bathrooms measure 1 1 by 15 feet, at the university these were the 
typical dimensions of a dorm room. Roommates for freshmen year were a gamble, despite 
the efforts to place compatible people together. Tensions ran high when people with different 
hobbies, tastes, and attitudes were placed together. 

Although many students tried to avoid roommate problems by living with a 
friend from home, requesting a roommate for freshman year was not always the best idea, 
according to sophomore Grant Schafer, a resident advisor in Dingledine Hall. "I feel that 
this living arrangement does hinder the roommates branching out and meeting their own 
friends and not just feeding off each others friends back home. College is all about growth 
and that definitely includes growth in relationships," Schafer said. 

Schafer said the worst living situation he'd seen was when one of his residents 
"never wore any clothes in the room. [He also] slept in his roommates bed because he was to lazy to climb up 
to his top bunk!" While seemingly humorous, for the students living in these situations they were anything 
but funny. The main dispute he saw with his residents was they were "too different" from each other. Schafer 
said, "Usually the roommate problems are petty." Borrowing without asking, being noisy while the other 
roommate was asleep, and lack of consideration were the main disputes that arise in the dorms. 

Room changes were available for campus residents after the first three weeks of school. Room changes 
were a last resort in accordance with the Office Residence Life (ORL) roommate conflict procedure, explained 
former resident advisor senior John Beavers. He said, "many problems arise from simple misunderstandings 
and can be worked out after both roommates sit down and talk." Also, he said that success in relationships 
could be achieved through open communication, which was a necessity especially when roommates had 
different beliefs and values. 

The Village dorms typically had a common area attached to three rooms, as opposed to hallway- 
style dorms such as Eagle and Hillside Halls. While the suite area could grant a tetreat from a hostile living 
environment, Beavers believed that such an area could also be used to delay dealing with problems in the 
room. Wherever students resided, Beavers said, "it is not what building you live in but the people you live with."

ORL gave three basic steps to maintaining a good roommate relationship: "Talk with 
ich other," "keep a good attitude," and "don't feel compelled to be best buddies." If communication 
as the main element for compatibility in the dorms, then why did many students tell "I-hate- 
,. iv-roommate" stories? White Hall resident advisor, sophomore Marie Rosado. said there were 
l> vo types of people that created bad living environments: those who were disrespectful and those 
' I vho just let themselves be walked on." 

In order to prevent bad living environments, roommate agreements were administered 
the beginning of the year to set standards to prevent the minor living differences from escalating 
ito a fight. Intended to facilitate compromises between roommates, the written set of rules was 
;reed upon by roommates, signed by each, and then kept on file by the resident advisors. One 
eshman who encountered many roommate difficulties said, "At the beginning of the year when 
re filled out our roommate agreement, we had just made a joke out of it. Now I wish we had set 
mie ground rules for the room." 

Preparing students tor dorm life before even stepping foot on campus was the mission of 

fe ORL pamphlet JMU Living. The pamphlet stated that communicating includes mutual respect, 
iderstanding, compromise, and consideration. The ability to communicate feelings to a roommate 
as a prime element students would need when cooperating with others in the future. Schafer said, "Working 
ut a [roommate] relationship and learning how to get along, be civil, and live with someone who is different 
om you is what life is all about. [College] is only preparing you for vour future relationships in life, 
'hether it be the workplace, apartment, etc." 

Coming to college was such a new experience for many freshmen because it was their first time

dorm programs 

loungin' around 

Dorm programs provide the 
opportunity to bring residents together 

Living in a dormitory had its ups and its downs, but 
one of the more positive aspects was getting to know the people 
around the building. One or the more popular ways of getting 
know people was to attend dorm programs. 

"I attend dorm programs to meet new people and get 
to know people, to hang out with my friends and just to take a 
break from my normal schedule," said freshman Sarah Petersen. 
"They have introduced me to a lot of people in my dorm who 1 
would otherwise just walk past, as well as helped me form good 
relationships with the resident advisors (RAs) in my building." 

There were seven different types of dorm programs 
that could be held: community involvement, personal growth, 

faculty involvement, community service, multicultural/diversity, and two academic programs. Resident Advisors 
(RA) on every hall had to hold a program of each type every semester. Some of the programs correlated with 
other events around campus. During the Asian Culture Festival, a Hanson Hall RA escorted interested 
residents to Festival for a diversity program. Other programs could be sponsored with the University Program 
Board. One of these events was a movie showing where students could bring a canned good to be donated 
and get free admission into the movie. "Community involvement are usually the most fun, so I like to have 
more than the minimum for that category," said sophomore Daniel Prockton, a first-year RA in Hanson 
Hall. A few of the programs he held were a ping-pong tournament and an a cappella concert with the 
Overtones and Note-oriery playing in the Hanson television lounge. Prockton also said that in the beginning

: the vear the entire hall staff put on an ice cream social, so that the residents could all 
ieet one another. 

Attendance at dorm programs varied, due to residents' level of intetest. "For 
>me programs, it is better to only have a few people, but for others, the more people 
le bettet," said Prockton. There were some programs where a more intimate group 
as required to get the most personal atmosphere. It supplies were needed to participate 
i the program, groups tended to be smaller, since dorms were not financially able to 
ay for many supplies. However, larger groups showed up for events such as concerts 
r socials, which added to the evening's excitement 

"Residents definitely enjoy the programs. We have had some really great 
arnouts this year. A lot of times, we have residents stick around in the TV lounge 
her the programs are over and socialize," Prockton added. Petersen said that her 
avorite program was painting flowerpots and planting flowers. It was called Planting 
he Seeds for Success and was put on by Hanson Hall's sophomore Hannah Prebeck. 
rebeck used this as one of her academic programs because she brought forth the 

(arallels between academic success and planting the seeds. This program not only caught Petersen's eye, but 
/as one of the most populat of the year. Petersen added, "The dorm programs have helped me adjust a bit 
kto dorm living. It is nice to get out of my room and have fun and good times with awesome people." ■

Dr. Ruth Westheimer, world-renowned sex therapist, 
made a visit to campus to inform students of sexual behaviors 
and myths about sex. At a mere four feet seven inches. Dr. Ruth 
was able to keep the audience entertained with her openness 
and forwardness about sex. "Every time she said the word 
'erection I giggled," said freshman Samantha Helsing. 

Junior Sarah Klein said, "The funniest part of the 

presentation was the homework she told all the guvs and girls to 

go home and do. It started her presentation oft on a good note." 

The 'homework' Klein referred to was Dr. Ruth's presentation 

opener. She said, "When you leave here tonight, I want the 

women, in the car ride home to contract and relax the vaginal muscle, then look at the car next to you and 

wink. For the men, I want you to go home, stand in front of the mirror, come to a full erection and look at 

it, and never complain about size again." 

Dr. Ruth was born in Germany and fled the country during the Holocaust. When she immigrated 
to the United States she worked at Columbia University for six years, then moved on to work at the New 
York Planned Parenthood office. It was then that she became interested in human sexuality, which eventually 
led to her career as a sex therapist. Dr. Ruth was promoting her new book. Human Sexuality: A Psychosocial 
Perspective, during her visit to campus which was co-written with Dr. Sandy Lopater.

Dr. Ruth's mission was to dispel myths about human sexuality such as falsehoods about masturbation and ways 
ne can become pregnant. She noted some common misconceptions, saying she had heard people say a woman would 
ot get pregnant "if she stands up, if she doesn't enjoy it, or if the man says he 'has control. " 

According to Helsing, "the best part of the night was the question and answer period at the end. Dr. Ruth took 
uestions from the audience, and encouraged them to use the terms 'my friend' or even 'my professor' to avoid any 
nbarrassment. The questions varied in topic from very sexual to general, such as why women were so confusing. 

Senior Amanda Tinnell thought "the best part of the night was how candid she was about contraception, 
ametimes it's hard for college students to talk about because they are in denial of their sexual activity, want to protect 
leir parents, or are being irresponsible in their sexual lives. I think students 
eed to hear someone openly talk about it so that they can be more 
smfortable and take the initiative to protect themselves and others." 

At the end of the presentation, the popular speaker was swarmed 
ith students who wanted a picture or an autograph. Dr. Ruth was more 
lan receptive to the attention. For many in attendance, the opportunity to 
e the famous speaker was satisfaction enough. Said Klein, "I think just 
sing able to see Dr. Ruth was the best part of the night. She is so well- 
nown throughout the world. How many people can say thev saw Dr. Ruth?" ■

In 1973, head archer)' coach Bob Ryder set the standard 
ot athletic excellence for the Dukes by becoming the first 
national champion of any sport at the university. Since 
1992, Ryder has demanded of his teams the same level of 
athletic excellence that he demanded of himself 30 years ago. 
Early in his career Ryder coached the current assistant coach, 
And\- Puckett, to the prestigious title ot All-American. 
Puckett was Ryder's first All-American in 1992. He was 
just one of over 40 archers who Ryder has coached to the 
honorable title. Puckett, who finished in the top four at 
the US Intercollegiate in 1992, "had a competitive specialty 
that made him good at relating to the team. He understood 
what the plavers were going through and could help them 
cope with the pressures that shooting creates. He understood 
the mental game that thev were going through, because he 
developed it for himself back in '92," explained coach Ryder. 

The Rvder/Puckert team created seven All-Americans 
this season with an almost perfect regular season. Rising 
to the occasion was Ryder's daughter, All-American, senior 
Sharon Ryder. Ryder was a team captain who served also as a 
representative to her father and showed the team what a 
dedicated archer looks like. The elder Ryder commented, 
"She had always been a big team player, and was well 
liked bv everyone." Rvder also placed third at the US 
Intercollegiate and helped the team win first place 
overall at the 2002 East Regional Indoor competition by 
shooting second in individual women's compound. 

Coach Rvder was pleased with the chemistry of the 
team and their performance, "They all practiced and 
worked together, and so they were all able to learn and 
grow together. They did a great job."

Last season proved to be successful for the Dukes on the 
baseball diamond. Not only did the baseball team improve from 
previous years, it also met several team goals. The Dukes finished 
the season 44-16, a school record tor number of victories in a 
season. The Dukes appeared on the national poles for eight 
weeks, peaking at 22 by Baseball America. The Dukes also led the 
Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) in many categories such as 
team batting with .315 and an earned run average of 3.67. With 
this success the Dukes won the American Division of the CAA, 
and earned the top seed for the CAA tournament. At the 
tournament the men finished second, but received an at-large 
bid to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) 
tournament. The Dukes went to regionals in South Carolina 
seeded third, and lost to North Carolina twice to be eliminated 
from the tournament. 

Several individuals from the team received honors. Junior 
first baseman Eddie Kim, was named CAA player of the year. Kim 
was also selected to first-team All-CAA, All-State, and All-East. 
Kim was second in the CAA for batting with a .421 average, and 
came close to many school records in hits, runs batted in, and 
doubles. Kim was joined on All-CAA first team by junior 
pitcher fared Doyle, and junior third baseman Brent Metheny. 
Junior pitcher Dan Meyer and junior third baseman Mitch 
Rigsby were named to the second team All-CAA.

Head coach Sherman Dillard entered his sixth season with high hopes 
for a successful season. This year's team consisted of a large group or old 
players and an incoming group of players that provided a good compli- 
ment to the returnees. The Dukes returned each of their starters from last 
season along with five other team members from last year. The returnees 
included the Colonial Athletic Association's leading scorer and lour other 
players who made 22 or more starts last season. "We have a team that has 
a good mix," reported Dillard, "We have a quality group of veteran 
players but also a lot of new faces. I've been extremely impressed with the 
work ethic and camaraderie our players have shown in the off-season," he said. 

Returning to the team was senior guard David Fanning, who averaged a 
CAA-best 18.0 points per game last season. Other returnees included 
senior center Ian Caskill, senior forward Pat Mitchell, junior forward 
Dwayne Broyles and senior guard Chris Williams. Also back was senior 
center Kenny Whitehead, senior guard Charlie Hatter, junior forward 
Robert Smith, and sophomore guards Daniel Freeman and Todd Moret. 
The newcomers to the team included freshmen forwards Ulrich Kossepka 
and Jon Plefka and freshmen guards Wes Miller and John Naparlo. 

The team was able to play all new opponents this year, as their schedule 
was modified at the beginning of the season. They played 13 home 
games, 13 road game and three neutral-site games. Their non-conference 
opponents included Florida Atlantic of the Atlantic Sun Conference, La 
Salle, Georgetown and West Virginia of the Big East, Akron of the Mid- 
American, and Appalachian State, Davidson and Furman of the Southern 
Conference. Also competing against the Dukes was Auburn, Denver, 
Duquesne, Northeastern, Sacred Heart, Troy State, and Puerto Rico- 
Mayaguez. "I'm very pleased with our schedule," reported Dillard. "I'm 
excited to have the opportunity to compete against three teams that were 
in last season's NCAA Tournament; I'm happy to have added several new 
opponents to our schedule; and it's good that we've been able to renew 
agreements with teams like West Virginia and Georgetown from the Big East. 

In one or the best games of the season. Fanning and Broyle each scored 
27 points to power the university to a 74-66 victor)' over Old Dominion 
University. The Dukes had lost against ODU earlier in the season but, "We 
regrouped as a team and played with a sense of purpose," said Dillard.

With just as many newcomers as returning players, the women's basketball 
team looked to rely on a few veteran players to lead the squad. These 
veterans leaders would be the three senior captains, Jess Chicowicz, Nadine 
Morgan and Shanna Price. Chicowicz was a three year starter at point guard, 
and held numerous university records. Morgan and Price, both starting 
forwards, have earned Ail-Conference honors in the past. The tiiree captains 
combined with last year's most improved plaver sophomore Lvnn Liburd 
to form a core group of strong players. 

After a rough start to the season, failing to Tulane University in the home 
opener, and losing a close one in overtime to Virginia Tech, the team 
bounced back. The dukes first Colonial Athletic Association win came 
against Hoistra in a 87-78 victory in which all five starters scored in double 
digits. Sophomore center Krystal Brooks scored a career-high 21, while 
Chicowicz also scored a career-high of 19. The women set the pace earlv 
scoring on 1 of their first 1 5 field-goal attempts. The team also had a season- 
high oi nine three-pointers. The next big CAA win came over William and 
Mar\ r , in an overtime battle where the dukes pulled out a 72-67 victory. 
Price was key in this match up, scoring 21 points, having 9 rebounds, and 
scoring six of the dukes first eight points in overtime. 

The second half of the season could not have gone better for the dukes, 
winning their 10th home game in a row with another overtime victory, this 
time 98-95 over Old Dominion. Not only were the dukes winning at home, 
but on the road as well. The women pulled off another solid win against 
Hofstra, this time on the road. Price and Morgan combined for 40 points 
to lead the dukes to this victory. The women looked forward to this 
momentum earning them and continuing into the CAA championship series.

Head coach Greg Whitesell helped set Bridgeforth Stadium and the 
Convocation Center on fire in his first year with the cheerleading squad. 
Coach Whitesell, a veteran cheerleader of the university was on the team 
from 1994 to 2000, and brought all those years of experience back with 
him when he took the position of head coach this year. "It's been a very 
busy vear and I've had the opportunity to work with a good group of 
athletes," Whitesell said of his first year on staff. 

The squad was divided up into two smaller squads; the purple squad 
resembled more of a varsity squad and cheered at the mens basketball games. 
While the gold squad resembled more of a junior varsity squad and cheered 
at women's basketball games. Unique to the purple and gold, however, 
was the fact that neither squad had a captain. According to coach Whitesell 
there was no need for captains. "Everyone contributes equally on the team," 
reported the rookie coach. 

Assistant coach Amy Goss, cheered on the team last vear, and helped Coach 
Whitesell run the show. Goss and Whitesell cheered on the team together 
from 1998 to 2000, when Whitesell graduated. Goss continued cheering 
until 2002, when she joined the coaching staff. Off the sidelines the 
cheerleaders participated in numerous other activities as well; whether it 
be Greek life or helping charity organizations, they always seemed to go 
the extra mile to do a good thing. Cheerleaders helped with Children's 
First Day, a summer program put together by TV3 to bring members of 
the community out for a day of fun. The gold team participated in the 
MS Walk, an event to help raise support and awareness for multiple sclerosis. 
Clearly both squads exemplified pride and dedication through their endless 
support and enthusiasm.

Dave Rinker continued his reign as Head Coach of both men's and 
women's cross country teams for a fourth year. "Coach Rinker is becom- 
ing a well recognized coach throughout the country, and we all respect 
him to be one of the best," said freshman Nick Noe of his first year with 
the team. 

On November second the men's and women's teams competed in the 
Colonial Athletic Association Championships and finished second after 
first place finisher William and Mary. "We lost to William and Mary 
because they are an older team than we are; they were pretty much just a 
year ahead of us," said freshman Travis Lambert of the team's perfor- 
mance at the meet. The team as a whole was, however, very pleased with 
their second place finish overall. Coming in first for the women was 
senior Mollie DeFrancesco (20:46.05) followed by junior Cindy Dunham 
(21:55.77) who came in fourth overall. Freshmen Nelly Anderson, 
Shannon Saunders, and junior Kelly Baker also came in among the top 
10 female finishers at the meet. The men's performance was headed up by 
sophomore Mark Bahnuk (26:33.75) in 17th place followed by freshman 
Travis Lambert (26:53.46) in 25th place. 

On November 23rd, the team competed in the IC4A Championships. 
The team came in 6th in the competition, in which schools from Virginia 
to Maine are invited. On the men's team, freshman Evan Kays (25:51.7) 
came in 22nd followed by sophomore Allen Carr (26:09.8) who came in 
35th. On the women's team, junior Clair Wood (18:48.3) came in 20th 
followed by junior Cindy Dunham (18:55.2) who came in 23rd.

The field hockev team, coached bv Irene Horvat, for the third year, 
assistant coach Sail}' Northcroft, and new arrival assistant, Amanda 
Janney, achieved a 1 2th place national rank after a season record of 
13-9. The team secured a record or 8-3 at Bridgeforth Stadium, a 5- 
5 away record, and 0-1 on neutral ground, which was very similar 
to last vear's 12-9 season. Their impressive list of wins included: 
Appalachian State, Duke, Wakeforest, Virginia, Richmond, North 
Carolina, Radford, Drexel, America, and Boston College. 

This years roster was comprised of 27 females: 1 3 freshmen, four 
sophomores, six juniors, and four seniors. The team was lead by 
senior team captains Kiernan Raffo and Ryan Shean with vice cap- 
tions, seniors Carrie Phillips and Elize van Ballegooie. 

In Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) play, the team held strong. 
With a 4-3 CAA record, the team placed third, behind first place 
Old Dominion, and second place William and Man 7 . Beating out 
Virginia Commonwealth 3- 1 , Drexel 2- 1 , Towson 4-0, and Hofstra 
3-2 in overtime, the Dukes showed their skill and perseverance. This 
year's CAA Field Hockev Defensive Player of the Year was awarded 
to senior Ryan Shean. Finishing her four-year career.Shean started 
all but two games. She earned a spot on the CAA first-team, after

being named to the second team in her junior year. 

Another award was given to freshman, goalkeeper Lori Amico, 
for CAA Field Hockey Rookie of the Year. She had several strong 
games in goal for the Dukes this season. The field hockey first team 
A11-Q\A included players Shean, sophomore Veerle Goudswaard, 
and junior Janelle Pedis. Second team CAA honors were awarded 
to van Ballegooie. 

In the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) play, 
the Dukes had a disappointing 1-2 loss against Duke, getting 
knocked out or the tournament in the first round. In terms of 
stats, however, the Dukes scored a total of 53 goals this year, 
giving only 59 away to opponents. Goudswaard contributed 
14 of those goals, and Perlis had the second high of 12, they 
were also responsible for the highest number of assists. Phillips, 
sophomore Alissa Santanna, Ballegooie, and juniors Valerie 
Cohen, Dana Weaver, Amy Cordes, and Meredith Lowrance 
continued the team's successful year by contributing to the goal 
total. The team had a series of 22 total goal passes, and 34 
assists. Goal keepers for the team, Amico (36) and Rafto (80) 
had a combined 1 16 saved goals.

After losing two key players last year, the football team had 
several vital spaces to fill, including linebacker Derek Lloyd, last 
years Buck Buchanan award winner and Most Valuable Player 
defensive player in the country. At the beginning or the season, 
head coach Mickey Matthews, now in his fourth year at the uni- 
versity, said, "Last year we had as young a football team as I've 
been involved with in 25 years of coaching. The good thing about 
this season is we're a year older, but this still will be the second- 
youngest team I've been involved with. We'll only have five or 
six seniors on our squad." 

The team ended up with only three juniors and four seniors, 
yet despite the odds against them, the men ended the season 
with a respectable 5-7 record. 

In the team's last home game of the season against William and 
Mary, the Dukes showed their fans what they were capable of. 
At the end of the first quarter, the Dukes led the score 14-7 with 
senior wide receiver Brannon Goins bringing in a four yard run 
early in the quarter, followed bv a four yard reception pass for a 
touchdown received bv senior tailback Rondell Bradley with four 
minutes remaining. At the end of the third, the Dukes still led

with a seven point lead after senior fullback Jason Mallory caught 
a 5 1 yard pass from freshman quarterback Jayson Cooke. The 
fourth quarter left the two teams tied at 28-28 until freshman 
tailback Raymond Hines carried the ball into the end zone for a 
one yard run in overtime leaving the Dukes victorious with a 
34-31 win. 

Although the team was challenged by having several injuries 
combined with having a young team, they still managed to play 
their games with dedication and pride. "I think we were a really 
young talented team, and we are looking forward to the years to 
come," admited offensive coach, John Zernhelt, also in his fourth 
year. "The mistakes that we made can be contributed to the 
vouthrulness of the team. But as we get older, I think we are 
going to be an excellent football team." he added.

Despite a shaky start to the season, the mens golf team finished fifth 
in the Mid-Atlantic District, just one spot shy of a bid to the National 
Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) tournament. Though the team 
floundered during the fall, it turned up the heat in the spring, finishing 
fourth overall at the Princeton Invitational and fourth again at the 
Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Championships. According to head 
coach Paul Gooden, the teams comeback toward the end of the season 
resulted from the team members keeping tabs on one another's commitment. 
"The guys started holding each other accountable for their actions. 
When that happened, everybody started playing better," said Gooden. 

The Dukes started out the season with an eighth place finish out of 
15 teams at the JMU Golf Invitational, where freshman Barry Londeree 
placed fourth individually and achieved the team's individual low 36-hole 
tournament score of 1 37. The rest of the team made a team low tournament 
score of 583 for 36 holes. The team placed third out of 17 teams at 
McLaughlin, boosting their enthusiasm for the rest of the season. 

Easing their way back up the ranks, the Dukes took 10th at the Big 
Red Classic in the beginning of March, and then took third at the 
Colonial Intercollegiate. At the Liberty Spring Classic the following week, the 
team fell back to place eighth, but came back with two fourth-place 
finishes at the Princeton Invitational and the CAA Championships. Woodson

season. By the end of the season, they had claimed seven top-five finishes, 
and never placed lower than 10th in any tournament. At the Marilyn 
Smith/Sunflower Invitational in mid-October, the Dukes placed fifth 
with a combined score of 319. The team won the field of 23 teams at 
the East Coast Athletic Conference (ECAC) Championships with a 
two-day team score of 619. Junior Jessica Lewis placed second at the 
tournament, just one stroke off the leader, graduate CorrieTayman 
placed third, and sophomore Jayme Langford placed seventh. 

The Dukes took second in the FIU Golden Panther Invitational, 
where Lewis took first with a three-round total of 228, winning the first 
play-off hole with a birdie. The team placed sixth out of 20 teams at 
the Carolina Collegiate Classic, where Senior Carol Green tied tor first 
overall. The Dukes took first at the William and Mary Invitational with 
the help of Lewis's second place finish and Langford's ninth place

The Women's gymnastics team had 19 members during the 2002-2003 
season; 10 of them were ranked in the university's Ail-Time Top 10 list. 
Going into the season with this kind of experience, the lady dukes had an 
intensely competitive season with very difficult competitors. 

Holding the school record for the floor exercise with a score of 9.9, senior 
Carri Elder joined senior Lauren Shear in their dual-captainship. Shear 
was a fourth Ail-Time competitor in university history on the balance beam 
with a score of 9.85 and tenth Ail-Time on the floor exercise earning a 
9.8. Two more seniors contributed their experience and spirit to the team. 
Senior Janelle DiOrio was also a fourth All-Time competitor with a score 
of 9.85 on the beam, and senior Emily McNabb was awarded the ECAC 
Coaches Choice Award in February. 

After the first three meets, both the Men's and Women's teams hosted 
their first, and for the women, the only home meet. At this meet, both 
teams attained their season's highest scores thus far with the women's team 
scoring 192.05 and the men's scoring 189.3. 

During this meet, the women's team scored in first place several times. 
Junior, Erin Fitzgerald scored a 38.2 in her all-around competition followed 
by DiOrio getting second place with a 38.175. The university held the first 
three spots on the beam with DiOrio coming in first, followed by Fitzgerald, 
and then junior Katie Elder. The Elder sisters rivaled on the floor with the 
younger of the two in the lead winning first place scoring a 9.85, and Carri 
scoring in with a close second of 9.825. 

According to Shear, "Our one and only home meet of the year, against 
William and Mary, was one of those meets that just sends chills up your 
spine. We hit routine after routine and ended up scoring the third highest 
team score in the school's history." She said that the "spirit and enthusiasm 
that [the university] is so well known for in the world of gymnastics" was 
very apparent that night. 

1 he day after the women's competition, the men took on both William 
and Mary and the Naval Academy. One of three freshmen, Peter Conduragis, 
came in second on the still rings scoring his personal-best with an 8.85.

The only senior on the team. Josh Goodwin, came in fifth on the pommtj 
horse, for the second time that season, with a score of 7.95. 

Contributing to some comic levin- for the team, sophomores Brett Warjj 
and Lucas Buchholz wrote about the team's experiences, throughout tht 
season in their "diary entries," under the pen name, "The Sophomore I 
Duo." But the "duo" also contributed their athletic talent, especially in ; 
the second meet of the year against Temple. Wargo scored a 7.95 on tht' 
high bar earning second place and Buchholz was the top finisher for thil 
Dukes on the floor exercise with a score of 8.3 earning fourth place.

With eight years of experience coaching the 
Dukes, women's lacrosse head coach Jennifer Ulelha said 
goodbye to her ream at the end of the season. It was also 
the last year for assistant coach, Mindy Leher (01) who 
provided much-needed guidance and leadership. Many of 
the team members had never played at the college level 
before. Team captain senior Lisa Staedt described it as a 
learning year. "We struggled a lot, but we were a young 
team," said Staedt, a first team All-South Region and 
second team All-American who was recently named to 
the 2002 Intercollegiate Women's Lacrosse Coaches 
Association (IWLCA)/U.S. Lacrosse (USL) All- 
American Team. 

While the women pulled off a respectable 8-10 
season, Staedt reported that most of their losses were by 

very small margins. The commendable effort of the new 
team was exemplified in their game against Ulelha's alma 
mater, Maryland State. The Dukes had an impressive 1 1- 
10 win over Maryland, who held the national championship 
for the past seven years. Helping lead the team to victory 
was team co-captain, senior Kristen Dinisio, the Duke's 
third-leading goal scorer (34) and leader in game-winning 
goals (three). Dinisio was a second-team pick in the 
Colonial Athletic Association (CAA), and was recently 
named to the 2002 IWLCA All-South Region Team. "She 
was a player that had a lot of passion and heart for the 
team," said Staedt of co-captain Dinisio. At the departure 
of the team's coach, Staedt said, "Everyone loved her. She 
was demanding and motivational. She brought our program 
into the top 10; she really made it into something."

After losing nine players last year, several of whom were 
All-Conference players, head coach Tom Martin knew 
that his team certainly had their work cut out for them. 
To make matters worse, the team also sustained several 
injuries early in the season. "We just didn t recover from 
those losses completely. And as a result, we started and 
ended well, but the middle of the season was weak for 
us," remarked Martin, "You can't have all those things 
happen at once. Unfortunately we did." 

Despite all the forces working against the team, the 
men pulled off a winning 8-10-3 season, and finished in 
the middle of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) 
conference fifth out of 1 teams. Most coaches would 
consider this admirable, and while Martin remained 
enthusiastic, he insisted that, "that's not where we 
wanted to be." 

With the loss of so many players from the previous year, 
an opportunity arose for many players to get playing 
time they may not have gotten otherwise. Among those 
who stepped up to fill in the gaps were seniors Ben 
Munro, Curt Nottingham, sophomore Max Lacy, and 
freshmen Stian Skaug and Dan Sheridan. "All of a sudden 
these guys were thrust into playing a lot when they didn t 
even think they would have to," emphasized Martin. 

At the beginning of the season, the men ranked in the 
top 10 in the region after a gratifying win against 
Towson University. Returning players looked forward to 
playing Towson after being defeated by them last year.

and Patrice Filin each scored for the Dukes, finishing off 
the game at 2-0. The men's performance also qualified 
for the CAA playoffs. 

Co-captains Kovolenko and junior Rob Overton led 
the team to its winning season. With only three losses, 
most by a narrow margin, the men certainly rose to the 
occasion. "It is important to me to have a one captain 
who is a senior and the other a junior, because the one 
can learn from the other and then he is able to do the 
same the following year," explained Martin.

Head Coach Dave Lombardo had only two pairs of shoes to fill for the 
women's soccer team. Among the key players lost to graduation were 
goalkeeper Suzanne Wilson and defender Jamie Miller. Taking Wilson's 
place was freshman Jessica Hussey, the goalkeeper on the under- 19 
Canadian national team. Hussey stepped up and set several records 
including the most shutouts (11) in a season. "We played a slightly 
different formation from last year," Lombardo remarked. "We 
reconfigured what our system was going to look like." To make up for 
other losses from last year, the women started with five of their seven 
seniors on the team. 

The team's tri-captain setup combined the talents of seniors Colleen 
Mcllwrath and Meredith McClure and junior Bryant Karpinski. The 
captains provided the team with enough combined leadership and skill to 
pull off an outstanding 13-8-3 season. The girls did not stop there, 
however. After defeating first-seeded William and Mary and second- 
seeded George Mason University, the Dukes went on to win the Colonial 
Athletic Association (CAA) championship, which was an automatic 
qualifier for the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) 
tournament. Out of 10 teams in the conference, only six qualified. The 
ladies ranked fourth. 

These vital wins earned them entrance into the NCAA tournament. 
The women were one of 64 teams selected out of 300 division-one 
schools across the country. In the first round of the NCAA tournament 
they defeated University of North Carolina Charlotte, ranked 13th in the 
country, and went on to advance to round two where they were eventu- 
ally defeated by University of Richmond 0-1. 

The height of the season was the semi-final game in the CAA tourna- 
ment when the women played William and Mary. "This was definitely 
the most exciting game for everyone," Lombardo remarked. With a 1-1 
tie on the scoreboard, and 37 seconds remaining, red-shirt senior Teri 
Joyce hit the game-winner to take the team into the finals. Joyce's game- 
winning goals were not unfamiliar to the team. Three days earlier she 
broke a tie game open with 27 seconds left in the game against Virginia 
Commonwealth University. "William and Mary was a big-time rival, and 
it was what the girls needed to win the tournament," Lombardo said. 
Eventually taking them to the championship, Joyce was named the CAA 
tournament Most Valuable Player. "We really missed the NCAA tourna- 
ment the past two years," said Lombardo. "It was nice to get back in. The 
seniors really rescued the team."

With an average height of 5 feet 6 inches, made up of mostly 
walk-on players, including 12 freshmen and two sophomores, 
the Softball team turned heads. The Dukes won 25 out of 49 
total games in their first varsity season at the Division I level. 
Most first year teams hope to win half as many games, but the 
Dukes set their sights on a .500 season, though they had only 
one player with any collegiate experience. 

Early in the season, the team beat The University of Virginia 
and its All-American pitcher 3-2 after being down 1-0 going into 
the bottom of the fifth. Freshman Leah Conley pitched 1 1-7 
against the nationally ranked team, lust three days later, the 
Dukes lost 2-1 to rival Hofstra after 12 innings, where Conlev 
pitched 11-8. 

Ranked fifth going into the Colonial Athletic Association 
(CAA) Championships, the Dukes finished third overall with a 
tournament record of 2-2. "To be playing on Sunday in the final 
three in your first year of existence was really unexpected. It 
capped off a tremendous first season," commented Head Coach 
Katie Flvnn, who was assisted by Cheryl Denny and fanine 


Finishing 5-9 in the regular season in conference play, the 
team ranked second in pitching in the conference. Freshman 
Nikki Dunn made the CAA All Tournament Team, and Conlev 
was named to the CAA second team, along with freshman 
infielder Katie Jaworski and sophomore centerfielder Leah Evert. 

With strong pitching in place from the start, the Dukes had 
to focus on their offensive game. "They had to get used to the 
level of pitching thev had to play against," said Flvnn. Quickl) 
enough, thev did. Evert led the team with 24 runs, 42 hits, three 
triples, 56 total bases and 1 3 stolen bases. Third baseman, 
sophomore Kara Schwind, let the team in at bats with 1 52 and 
doubles with 10. Freshman Ashlee Schenck finished the season 
with 1 4 runs, 40 hits, 24 runs batted in and 47 total bases. 
Schenck was named Most Valuable Player for the season, and 
Schwind received the Best Defense Award. Freshman Liz George 
took the Coaches Award, and sophomore Keri Schlosser won the 
Purple and Gold award for heart, determination and dedication.

The determination of the women's team was proved in their sixth meet 
when the lady dukes won by a 104-point margin over Radford. At this 
victorious meet many swimmers placed even though it was the first time 
most of them had competed in their respective race. During the Old 
Dominion meet, senior captain Amanda Coyle received first place for 
both the 1000 and 500 yd. freestyle and newcomer Lisa Enders took first 
on both the one and three-meter spring boards. The combined victories 
or these two competitors counted toward the 1 wins for the Lady Dukes 
out of 13 events. 

The women's team set a pool record for the 200 yd. freestyle relay of 
one minute and 38.91 seconds. Freshman Megan Loucks, sophomore 
Christine Filak, senior captain Marie Hansbrough, who frequently swam 
on winning relay teams, and junior Mary Webber took first place against 
George Mason University with this time. Using the same lineup in the 
same event almost a month later at CAA championships, the team of four 
won third place with an improved time of one minute and 37.10 seconds. 

The other two senior captains were competitive in their events as well. 
Amanda Coyle took first in the 500 and 200 yd. freestyle and Rebecca 
Guy showed consistent success with the 200 yd. butterfly. Senior, Jessica 
Holm Dahl swam competitively in the 200 yd. breaststroke and medley 
relays. Throughout the season, junior, Mary Webber, took multiple first 
places wins, most of which were freestyle events and some in butterfly. 

The three captains of the men's team, Ryan Hegna, Brody Reid and Patrick 
Stockton, all seniors, had pre-season expectations of winning the 10th 

Colonial Athletic Association 
title in duke swimming history. 
With a season full of record- 
breaking swims, many of which 
were relay events, the dukes 
showed their competitiveness 
for the title. A record set in 
1987 was broken during a 
home meet against Old 

Dominion University. Juniors,

Geoff Meyer, Mike Nicholas, Jeff Hicks, and senior John McLaren won th 
400 yard freestyle relay setting the new time to beat at three minutes and 
5.62 seconds. Another relay record was broken during the CAA ChampionshipsI 
at George Mason University. Meyer, Nicholas and McLaren teamed up withli 
freshman, Danny Gray to take second place in the 200 freestyle relay with I 
time of one minute and 22.1 1 seconds. This broke a school record set 
almost two years prior. 

As his name consistently showed up in winning relay teams, McLaren, whd 
also took many first place wins in the 50 yd freestvle, stood out in his finall 
swim season. Swimming long-distance freestyle, Reid attained multiple first- 
place finishes in 2002-2003 and teamed up with fellow captain, Hegna I 
contribute to a first place win in the 200 yd. freestyle relay. The third captaiil 
Stockton, contributed speed and experience, according to an article on 
the athletic website, to the team in the 100 and 200 yd. freestyle event

men's & women's tennis

In 1991. the men's tennis head coach, Stephen Secord, 
was on a doubles team with Marc Brix for the Dukes. The 
two men played naturally together and developed a lifelong 
friendship on and off the tennis courts. Several years later, 
after Secord had been hired to coach the men's team, Brix 
called from Germany and told him about Andrew Lux, a 
German student who was not only academically gifted but 
also talented on the court. Secord, interested, kept up with 
the student and eventually was able to meet him. Secord 
was impressed with the student, and recruited him for 
the team. During his four vears as a Duke, Lux excelled 
bevond anvone's expectations. Besides being a nationally 
ranked (singles, doubles) team captain, Lux was also the 
team's Most Valuable Player and the Student Athlete of the 
Year for the second year in a row. Mike Hendricksen, 
the number two seed player, also showed his leadership 
on the court. "The players really liked him, and he was a 
natural leader," said Secord. 

Maria Malerba, women's tennis coach, experienced a 
season when the team stepped up and took control, in what 
she calls, "one of the best matches I'd ever seen." At the 
first round of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) 
Championships the Dukes took on the University of North 
Carolina Wilmington (UNCW). The match had started 
late due to a light rainfall and the teams plaved under the

lights. Long after the sun had gone down the match was 
tied 3-3. Senior Liz Simon, the team captain, was the only 
plaver still on the court. As her match neared its end she 
was down in the third set 6-5, love-40. Losing the next 
point would have cost her the game, and cost her team 
the match, which would have taken them out of the CAA 
Championships. Simon was not about to let that happen. 
She tied the game up 6-6 and went on to crush UNCW 
out of the Championship, allowing her team to advance 
on to the quarterfinal round of the CAA Championships. 
It was this dedication and persistence that gave the 
women's tennis team a winning season. Simon was one of 
several leaders on the team. Sophomore Margie Zesinger, 
took the number one seed this vear and last. She was on the 
second team .All Conference singles in the CAA, and 
took home the coaches award at the end of the 
season. Sophomore Spencer Brown took home the 
MVP for winning more doubles and singles matches 
than anyone else. A very impressive display of leadership 
was also found in junior Michele Grover's absolute 
dedication to the team. In December, Grover had shoulder 
surgery and could no longer play competitively. Despite 
her condition, Grover still made it to even' match and even 
the away games. "She was really a big inspiration and a 
role model for the rest of the team." remarked Malerba.

The men's track season revealed a successful team that was 
not afraid to work hard. Although the season was hampered by 
various injuries, the team still managed to have a good sea- 
son. For the indoor season, the Dukes placed 12th out of 
78 teams in the Eastern Championships and had one All 
American Winner, senior Anthony Wallace. According to 
head coach Bill Walton, "The JMU Invitational proved once 
again to be a very successful meet. With approximately 750 
competitors from schools including Penn State, Syracuse, 
Duke, Maryland, Pittsburgh, and other Big East Schools." The 
success of the outdoor season was due mainly to the 4x4 
relay and the 4x8 relays, both or which placed highly. 

The Dukes' most successful team member was Wallace. 
Wallace was one of the team captains and received All 
American and Eastern Champion honors. Wallace competed 
in sprints and was ranked among the top at the Eastern 
Championships in the 60 meter dash. But his best event 
was the long jump, in which he placed fifth at the national 
championship meet with a jump of 25 feet, 4 1/2 inches. 

The track season was also a good one for the Lady Dukes. 

Many accomplishments were made, both individually and 
as a team. The Dukes were tied for 2 1 st out of 45 scoring teams 
at the ECAC Championships in Boston, MA. and tied for 
12th out of 50 scoring teams at the ECAC Championships 
in Princeton, N.J. The team was also ranked fourth in the 
Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) conference. Coach 
Gwen Harris was proud of her team, "We finished 1 2th in 
the east, which was a very good season." 

In addition to the team's achievements, several individuals 
stood out. These women were Mollie DeFrancesco and 
Lauren Burawski. DeFrancesco was All American in several 
events including the 3,000m steeplechase and the 5,000m 
run (indoor track). She was also the ECAC champion for the 
3,000m steeplechase and the CAA Track and Field Athlete 
of the Year. Her greatest accomplishment was being fourth 
in the USA Track and Field Championships (10:00.37). 
Burawski also had a good season, she qualified for several 
NCAA outdoor events including the 10,000m run (34: 1 8.45) 
and the 5,000m run (16:47.26). Burawski was also a runner 
up in the CAA championships.

The women's volleyball team didn't seem to have a hard time 
recovering after losing their Most Valuable Player last year, Daniel 
Heinbaugh. Her vacancy left: an opening on the right side which 
senior outside hitter Larissa Daily- Winkler was ready to fill. 
Winkler, this year's team captain, led the team to incredible vic- 
tories this season. Head coach Disa Garner helped lead the team 
to have a winning season. "This years team was wonderful. It 
was one of the best I've ever seen" said Garner of her champion- 
ship team. 

The Dukes can certainlv be proud of the teams performance 
this season. The women succeeded in an overall 21-10 winning 
season. Of those games, 16 were conference games. Out of the 
conference games, the women won 13, which put them in a 
position to play in the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) tour- 
nament, in which only the top six teams are eligible to compete. 
In the tournament, George Mason (22-7) opened the match with 
a 30-18 victor)' before the host Dukes (21-10) claimed the next 
two games by respective scores of 30-24 and 30-23. George Ma- 
son extended the match to the fullest with a 30-27 win in game 
four. The Patriots overcame a 6-3 deficit in game five and won 
15-10, becoming the only CAA team to beat the Dukes on their 
home court in 1 1 matches this season. Making the Dukes the num- 
ber two finishers in the tournament. 

Freshman outside hitter Emilee Hussack said, "Coming on to 
this team as a freshman, I was excited. The old players were great 
for the new guys, and the team was a lot of fun." With a winning 
season to put them into the CAA tournament, and a stunning 
performance in the tournament to put them into the number two 
spot in the finals, the women certainly had a lot to be proud of.

Due to the Colonial Athletic Association's new structuring the Dukes had 
to face a larger and more competitive set of opponents. The coaching staff 
knew that they were going to have their work cut out for them, and new 
head coach Chris Elliott was ready. Elliott took control of the wresting 
program after the retirement of Jeff "Peanut" Bowyer who had coached the 
Dukes for the past 14 seasons. 

The squad's starters included several returning wrestlers including 2002 
State and Colonial Athletic Association Champion, senior Seth Cameron 
(165 lbs.) with an 18-6 record. Also returning was 2001 CAA and State 
Champion, senior Dave Colabella (184 lbs.) with a 25-13 record; and 2000 
CAA Champion, junior Jonathan Huesdash (133 lbs) with a 12-11 record. 
Rounding out the squad was senior Pat Diaz (141 lbs.) with a 24-14 record; 
and junior Steve Kodish (197 lbs.) with a 19-13 record. This years starters 
came together to form a powerful squad for the Dukes. 

Elliott's debut as head coach was victorious as the squad took on American 
University with a 29-18 defeat. In the opening match. Senior Jon Huesdash 
(133 lbs.) pinned his opponent, in only one minute and 46 seconds. Senior 
Pat Diaz (141 lbs.) also won in a 8-3 decision to give the Dukes an early 8-0 
advantage. The closest that the Eagles would get to the Dukes was within a 
gap of 1 1-9. Junior Steve Kodish won by forfeit to leave the match at a 29- 
9 Duke advantage. The squad pulled together to leave the match with a 
feeling of victory that lasted through the entire season.

Alpha Kappa Lambda 

Celebrating its 1 5th anniversary last November, Alpha Kappa 
Lambda (AKA) was formed at the university on April 21, 1987. Since then 
they have endeavored to be well-rounded in all their academic, athletic, 
social and philanthropic efforts. Through out the year the group participated 
in many service projects, maintained high grades, and still found time for 
fun. With approximately 75 members, Vice-President Joshua Reinhard 
described the fraternity as "diverse, fun-loving and wild." 

During the fall, AKA co-hosted their annual Turkey Trot Fun Run 
with Tri-Sigma. The 5k run took place on campus and to raise money for 
the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The brothers also helped out in smaller- 
scale local service activities and outside volunteer work. Perhaps their most 
visible and well attended event was AKA's annual spring Lombardi Gras 
Music Festival, which was also supported by UPB and ZetaTau Alpha. This 
all-day outdoor music festival raised money for the Vince Lombardi 
Foundation, which benefited cancer patients. For one fee, students were 
able to come and go as they pleased and see six bands play. High profile 
groups have played at Lombardi Gras in the past, including De La Soul, 
Fighting Gravity, KI: Theory, Emmett, Swimming, Georgia Avenue, 
Everything, Jimmies Chicken Shack and 2 Skinnee J's. 

The men of AKA stayed busy throughout the year, playing 
intramural soccer, basketball and Softball, having socials with sororities on 
campus, and participating in Greek Sing. In the past four years, they won 
Greek Sing three times and always put on a great performance. Academically, 
Alpha Kappa Lambda was one of the strongest fraternities on campus. They 
consistently ranked in the top three highest grade point averages of all the 
fraternities, taking great pride in that distinction. 

The bonds of friendship and brotherhood grew as the members of 
AKA worked together and played together. "I joined Alpha Kappa Lambda 
to be part of a group of friends that have fun with each other," said Reinhard. 
"We lead by example and show each other what it's like to always be there 
for each other." a bytoniduncan

Founded by four students in 1992, Campus Assault Response, known as C.A.R.E., assisted many 
primary and secondary victims of assault. Members ran a 24 hours a day, seven days a week help-line that 
provided a necessary and important service to the college community. With 40 trained members who were 
able to answer calls, they worked with their pager-voicemail system to provide this important sendee. They 
also held educational programs and demonstrations throughout campus. This meant that a person would call 
in and within 15 minutes a volunteer of C.A.R.E. would call them back to offer support or information. 
Members went through about 32 hours of training so that they could fully assist the callers. This service took 
dedication and commitment from its volunteers but they felt that was a wordiwhile use of their time. 

C.A.R.E. also put on their annual fall presentation of "Rape is NOT Sex." This presentation 
raised awareness about sexual assault and its occurrence on the campus and nationwide. This presentaion, 
which was created and performed by students, was a huge success. In the spring, C.A.R.E. held its annual 
"Take Back the Night" presentation. This gave the opportunity for victims and survivors of sexual assault 
to speak out and reflect on their own stories of rape and violence was an important message. C.A.R.E. 
stressed the importance of speaking out and showing that people were not alone in their struggles. They 
passed out stickers with "1 in 4" written on them, symbolizing that 1 in 4 women would be sexuallv 
assaulted before they graduated. They also held events for sports teams, sororities and dorms. With its 
dedicated volunteers, C.A.R.E. helped many sexual assault victims and promoted a more educated campus.

Contemporary Gospel Singers 

The mission that Contemporary Gospel Singers continually set out to accomplish was glorifving 
God through song and spreading His word throughout the university and to the Harrisonburg community. 
CGS was founded on campus in the 1 970's bv 1 3 young men and women and grew to become a successful 
ministry with over 45 members. CGS president, senior Natasha Burke had nothing but words of praise for 
the ministry." I have been a member of the Contemporary Gospel Singers for five years and have been on 
the executive board for four consecutive years," Burke said. "Of all my years of being a part of this ministry, 
I must say that this year has been one of the best." 

The most recent development in helping CGS to seek God was the addition of a sign-language 
and praise dance ministry. Some of the singers' main events were in the annual Parents Weekend and 
Homecoming performances, both held in the Wilson Hall Auditorium. "Parents Weekend is always a 
blessing because at the concert, we have a Parents Choir,' Burke said. "We have a parents social the morning 
before the concert which gives us time to fellowship with one another. At Homecoming, we have all the 
CGS alumni come back and sing with us at the concert. It's always great to have older members come back 
and share the experiences they had while being a part of CGS." The singers also took part in the Martin 
Luther King celebration held in January. 

Spring was a time ripe with CGS performances, as they held their Anniversary Weekend the 
first weekend in April. In that weekend they had various events planned such as the Christian Light 
Club banquet. Finally, CGS s Gospel Extravaganza consisted of various college choirs and church choirs 
from the area who came to share the message of God through song. "Although this year CGS is smaller 
in number, I can truly say that we are as close of a family as I've ever seen it, Burke said. " The members 
are dedicated and are alwavs at all of the events we have. That is truly a blessing." ■ by garret hiller

While Alpha Phi owes its existence to 10 women at Syracuse 
University back in 1 872, it was the spirit, dedication and enthusiasm of the 
sisters on campus that made Alpha Phi such a well-rounded, diverse sororitv. 
The Theta Iota Chapter was founded in 1991. They worked diligently at 
upholding their ideals or womanhood, scholarship, service, sisterly love and 
kindness. Junior Rachel Seidenburg joined Alpha Phi her freshman year 
and felt like she grew because of her sisters. "Alpha Phi has allowed me to 
become a leader, give back to the community, and form life long friendships," 
she said. 

The group of 150 sisters made a positive impact on campus and 
in the community. They raised monev for The Alpha Phi Foundation for 
Cardiac Care through their annual weeklong event, A-Phiasco, and also 
held a Halloween event for children. Normally the Halloween event was 
held at the Bull Pen mini-golf course, but due to inclement weather the 
event was moved inside the arcade AJaddins Castle. Members of Alpha Phi 
still dressed up and passed out candy to the children. 

Throughout the year, community service was strongly encouraged 
outside of planned sorority events. Many members went to the S.P.C.A. 
once a week to play with the animals, finding the experience to be enjoyable 
for both parties. "Community service with Alpha Phi is always enjoyable 
because you get the chance to help others while having run with vour friends." 
Seidenburg explained. Alpha Phi also worked hard during Greek Week, 
which they won overall. Alpha Phi junior Lacy Daily won "Best Soloist 
with her rendition or Peggy Lee's "Fever. 

While they were very involved in charity work, these sisters made 
time tor tun as well. With semi-tormals, mixers and relaxing times in their 
basement, the girls built solid friendships. Junior April Amendola said, "I 
consider it a true blessing to be a sister in Alpha Phi. Not only have I had 
the opportunity' to take on a leadership role, but I have formed strong 
friendships based on trust, honesty, and especially love." ■ bytoniduncan

Alpha Phi Omega 

Based on three Cardinal Principles of leadership, friendship and 
service, members of Alpha Phi Omega gave back to the community and 
enjoyed themsek'es at the same time. The service fraternity was initiated on 
campus in 1982 and made a large impact since then. With a service project 
every night of the week except Wednesday and Saturday, members found 
themselves very busy. "It is awesome to help out the Harrisonburg 
community," said President junior Andrea Smith. "You see how much of a 
difference your services make and this just makes you want to come back 
for more." 

Alpha Phi Omega volunteered in many ways throughout the year. 
During the Christmas season, they adopted a family with three children. 
One of the brothers found the family at the Salvation Army and, with the 
fraternity's help, moved them into the Mercy House. This impacted the 
family greatly, allowing the childten to attend school once they were settled 
in at Mercy House. 

One of Alpha Phi Omega's favorite service events was working 
with the Special Olympics. They helped the athletes during their swim 
races by staying in the shallow end with the less experienced swimmers. 
Others helped participate in the races by either swimming or keeping time. 
Members found their fraternity very rewarding through all the new 
friendships they made and from all of their experiences. Fulfilling their 
principles of leadership, friendship and service. Smith said "you haven't 
really lived a perfect day unless you have done for someone who cannot 
repay you." ■ bytoniduncan

Alpha Sigma Alpha 

Focusing on intellectual, physical, spiritual and social growth, sisters 
of Alpha Sigma Alpha worked hard throughout the year. Each event they 
participated helped the sisters grow in one of the above ways. With the 
belief that every member makes a difference, these sisters created a support 
system for each other in addition to making an impact on campus. 

AZA members helped during the Special Olympics, one of their 
national philanthropies. The girls helped out with scoring, timing, and most 
importantly cheering for these special athletes. Their other philanthropy 
was the S. June Smith Center, a private non-profit agency that helped infants 
and children with developmental disabilities by providing early identification, 
education, training and therapy. They also assisted the disabled throughout 

By being mentors in the Big Brothers, Big Sisters program, assisting 
at the Boys and Girls Club, and helping the Harrisonburg Rescue Squad, 
these sisters stayed very busy. However, physical and social growth was 
important and AZA members also had fun. Many of the sisters participated 
in intramural sports competitions offered through UREC. They also had 
mixers with ftaternities, formals, and participated in Greek Sing. 

By creating a strong sisterhood, AZA was able to help each develop 
into a well-balanced woman. With the motto to "Aspire, Seek, Attain," 
these sisters were able to achieve many things when they worked together. 
By growing intellectually, physically, spiritually and socially, sisters of Alpha 
Sigma Alpha improved themselves while serving the community. ■ by torn

Alpha Sigma Tau 

Alpha Sigma Tau promoted social, cultural, academic, and ethical values through commu- 
nity involvement and close sisterhood. AZT's Psi Chapter has initiated almost 2,000 members 
since its foundation in 1944. Since then Alpha Sigma Tau has become a large group of diverse 
sisters, who all participated in many events that gave back to the community. 

In April, AZT held its annual AIDS walk. The walk raised money to support the Valley 
AIDS Network and Camp Heartland. The event was very successful with many participants from 
outside the sororitv. In an attempt to increase AIDS awareness, .Alpha Sigma Tau also held events 
on the Commons prior to the walk. 

Sisters reached out to Harrisonburg community in other ways as well. Thev held a 
Halloween Part) 1 for the local Boys and Girls club and the sisters also volunteered with Big Brothers, 
Big Sisters, a mentoring program at local elementary schools. These women also got to know an 
elderly person in the "Adopt-a-Grandparent" program. Even' week, sisters visited Sunnyside 
Retirement home, cheering up the residents. Sisters who could not go to Sunnvside made or 
bought cards that were passed out to the residents. AZT also participated in the "Light the 
Night" walk held in Northern Virginia. The event raised money for the Leukemia-Lymphoma 
society, and the sisters walked in memory of their late sister Sara Yakovac. 

While all their community service took up much of their time, AZT sisters found it 
worthwhile. "I think that is important tor people to see the other side to sororities and not just 
the social aspect," said junior Deanna Rella. "And I found that it is important to give back to the 
community, it makes you grow as a person." 

When they were not assisting the community, .Alpha Sigma Tau found other ways to 
have fun while promoting sisterhood. They participated in mixers, had ice cream socials during 
finals week, co-sponsored events with other sororities, and partook in Greek Week. Rella said, 
"With approximately 140 unique people all wearing the same letters, we were able to accomplish 
so much together." ■ bytoniduncan

Mens Club Basketball 

The club basketball team was founded in the spring of 1999 and has been playing strong 
ever since. Its primary goal was to give students an opportunity to play competitive basketball against 
other schools but also to become involved in the communitv both on and off campus. 

The winter season ended with a win against both Virginia Tech and Hampton-Svdnev. In 
their seasons, club basketball competed against several club and some Division III teams. Dedication 
and practice contributed to the wins. Daily practices included running drills and shooting practice as 
well as scrimmages in the UREC gymnasium. 

Outside of the game, the team also worked together in the community. As they have in 
previous years, the team participated as a group in Relay for Life. During the holiday season, they took 
part in Warm-a- Winter- Wish, which donates gifts to families in need. 

The players were enthusiastic about their team. "It's a great opportunity to play some ball 
with a good group of guys against quality competition from other schools," said junior NateTharp.

The Asian Student Union carried on its proud tradition of promoting 
various Asian-American cultures to the student body with manv exciting 
events and service projects throughout the year. ASU was formed 30 years 
ago as the China Watcher's Club. It has also gone by the name of Asian 
American Association. 

ASU involved itself with a number of communirv sen-ice projects. 
One such activity they took part in regularly was volunteering at the 
Harrisonburg Boys and Girls Club. ASU also sponsored some events with 
Asian American themes. On November sixth, they held Asia Pop 2K2 in 
which Asian pop music videos, sitcoms, and movies were put on displav. 
On November 1 9, the club hosted a performance by Yellow Rage, an Asian- 
American spoken word duo from HBO Def Poetry Jam. The organization's 
biggest event of all was its own creation, the annual culture show, titled 
"GenerAsianz." Held on November 15. the program was an eclectic mix of 
cultural dances, singing, and a fashion show. The show attracted a large 
audience, including participants from student cultural organizations at other 

ASU vice president, senior Odyssey Lopez, became involved with 
the organization her freshman year. "ASU gave me the opportunity to 
encourage others to learn about my Filipino heritage. In addition I have 
learned a lot about other Asian cultures," Lopez said. "The organization 
has opened my eyes to the diversity ot Asian culture as well as allowing me to 
meet and become such close friends with people on this campus." ■ by garret hitler

Dance Theatre 

Allowing students to pursue their passions, Dance Theatre gave dance majors and minors a niche in 
their department. With approximately 50 members of all years and experience, the club helped support 
each other. "We understood each other best because our lifestyle is so similar," said senior President Ryan 
Chrisman. "We are a strong unit of dedicated dancers, individuals striving towards similar goals. Each 
dancer brings qualities to the department that are refreshing and stimulating." Dance Theatre offered a 
mentoring program to its freshman members as well, helping to ease freshmen's transition from high 
school dancing to the collegiate level. Freshman members were given the chance to connect with an older 
member of the group, who helped explain the different dance programs. 

Dance Theatre gave its members the opportunity to perform in three ensembles. These were the 
Associate Dance Ensemble, which was the freshman ensemble, the Contemporary Dance Ensemble, which 
was an upperclass performing group, and finally a Virginia Repertory Dance Company, which was a pre- 
professional performing opportunity. Students produced, directed, performed, designed, lit and managed 
the Student Dance Concerts in both the fall and spring semesters. 

Preparing for all of these events required dedication from each of the members. With only quick 
breaks for lunch or dinner, they were often found dancing at Godwin as early as 9:30 on a weekend and 
well until 1 1 at night. "Godwin became our second home," said Chrisman. When they were not dancing, 
members tried to benefit the community, working with the adult developmental health program and 
putting on shows around Harrisonburg. Dance Theatre was a close-knit group of performers who enjoyed 
themselves while lending each other support during those grueling hours at Godwin and also tried to give 
back to the community. ■ bytoniduncan

Women's Club Basketball 

Women's Club Basketball maintained a proud tradition 
with competitive athleticism and enthusiastic sportsmanship. The 
team was founded in 1 998 and continued to be a dominant member 
of the East Coast Women's Basketball League every year since. 

The club team of 1 5 members expanded outside of their 
club league to challenge Division III varsity teams with much 
success. Extending its season over both semesters of the school year, 
Women's Club Basketball had a schedule that included about forty 
games. It was the team's most competitive and intense season in its 
history. With a 19-6 record, the women played the most games, 
went to the most tournaments, and had the most wins than any 
other season. Also, the team defeated the University of Virginia, its 
biggest rival, for only the second time in its history. Towards the 
end of their season, the team not only played club teams from 
colleges ranging from Princeton to UNC, but also played 
community colleges and a couple of varsity Division III schools. 
The lady Dukes ended the fall season of 2002 with their league 
championship at the University of Maryland in which after playing 
five games in 48 hours, they won third place. 

Aside from maintaining a year-round competitive 
basketball schedule, the team raised money and participated in 
community service events. The team was extremely proud of its 
current and former members pulling together to raise money and 
participate in a meaningful cause. In the winter, the team received 
a donation from State Farm and cleaned the Convocation Center 
to raise money for the following spring. 

Regarding social events, club president junior Megan 
Carney said, "The team has become a very close group of friends. 
We enjoy mixers with other clubs and team dinners. We all play 
basketball for no other reason than we love it and enjoy the fun 
that being on a team brings. "■ by garret hitler

The Bluestone 

Perhaps the most important keepsake of the college experience is 
the yearbook. It freezes in time our precious memories, collecting images of 
our friends and colleagues, and providing a written log of all the activities 
that we dedicated our energies toward. The staff or The Bluestone worked 
tirelessly year-round, adhering to principles of excellence. 

Senior Sally Duff assumed the formidable reins of Editor-in-Chief 
and enjoyed the process of working with a competent team that sought to 
put out the best product possible. "I am so pleased to have such a hard 
working staff this year. A publication like this takes so much commitment 
and dedication to produce." A staff of 31 comprised The Bluestone, with 
several teams made up of editors, designers, photographers, and writers who 
worked on the various sections. The yearbook was assembled throughout 
the year with five major deadlines. The staff scrambled to meet deadlines, 
submitting about 100 pages to the publishing company at a time. 

The book ranges each year between 504 pages to 416 pages, with 
the number based on a particular year's budget. At each deadline, the editorial 
board spent twenty or more straight hours editing and revising stories up to 
six times, making sure design layouts were up to spec, and checking 
photography. Every edition of The Bluestone had a unique theme. Duff 
devised the theme and it met with the approval of the other editorial board 
members. "The theme is something specific to every year, or just a message 
that you want students to identify with as they look through the book," 
Duff said. 

The Bluestone was nominated each of the past few years for the 
Gold Crown Award, which was the highest honor a college publication like 
the Bluestone could receive. Only five books were awarded this distinction 
from hundreds of books entered nationally. The Bluestone won three awards 
in the past, traveling to New York City to receive the honor, which was 
presented by the Columbia Scholastic Press. 

"The Bluestone represents one year of history at this university 
and is something students will hold on to forever and will reopen again and 
again when they look back on their college years," Duff added. "Just knowing 
that is why I love being a part of this organization. The Bluestone staff is 
truly creating a documentary of the events and people that they want their 
fellow students to remember after they leave the school."

While Boarderline had only been a club for rwo years, it quickly be- 
came one of the more popular organizations, boasting 175 members. 
Boarderline was created as a group where snowboarders or all abilities could 
meet and gain more knowledge of the sport. No matter the skill level — 
from first-timers to advanced members — Boarderline genuinely welcomed 
all people. It also allowed students a chance to ride the slopes at a cheaper 
rate as well as carpool, a huge bonus tor freshman without cars. With its 
weekly trips to Massanutten and other ski resorts, students began to hear 
about the club by word-of-mouth. As a result, more snowboard enthusiast 
began to join. 

Club president, junior Craig Williams, said he joined the club 
because he wanted to find other students on campus that enjoyed 
snowboarding as much as he did. "I wanted people I could go on the trips 
with," he said. "It was a lot cheaper with group rates and it was easier to 
work out rides when you have a lot ot people." 

By extending their knowledge and skills to the community, 
Boarderline was able to spread its love of their sport to others. With so 
manv members, their major community service project "Boarderline s Bash 
at the 'Nut" became more organized and popular. During this event, 
members of Boarderline taught the community basic snowboarding 
techniques at Massanutten Ski Resort. All of these lessons were free and 
everyone was welcome to come participate. The event also included contests, 
raffles and demonstration events. 

Unlike many sports clubs, Boarderline welcomed beginners. Many 
people came to campus without the chance to snowboard and Boarderline 
gave students the opportunity "to learn how to do it or at least get the 
chance to try," said Williams. ■ bytoniduncan

Delta Epsilon Chi 

Delta Epsilon Chi was founded in 1999 by a group of five students who wanted something different 
from other organizations on campus. In the following years, AEX grew to a size of nearly 60 members. 
The fraternity's primary purpose was to compete on the state and national level with business simulations 
in many different career areas. At these events, students participated in simulations, case studies, and 
presentations that were judged with the possibility of winning in their respective area. Topics ranged from 
food services to tourism to retail to design. Just about ever)- area conceivable was available for competition, 
so AEX was open to all majors. 

AEX president, senior Kris LoCascio, joined the organization because he was looking to become 
a part of something new. "It wasn't your normal organization," LoCascio said. "I could get something out 
of it that I couldn't get from odier organizations." AEX also operated differently than other clubs on 
campus. "[Members are] able to take up an active role," LoCascio explained. "Our organization is a 
proactive organization so our committees decide what we do instead of an executive board pushing decisions 
on down." The group actively participated in several community service events such as Relay for Life. 
LoCascio called the relay an opportunity for his organization to "get together and support a good cause." 

AEX also took part in its annual fundraiser selling cookies at Zane Showker and ISAT, which 
helped support trips to state and national competitions, but the point of the sales is more to get the name 
of the organization out. Additionally, AEX kept in close contact with local high schools' marketing classes 
so as to help out with their DECA conferences (the high school level of AEX's conference in business 

The relative youth of AEX compared to other groups also made the organization unique among 
others. While the state and national competitions were annual events, the fraternity also came up with 
new ideas including a semi-formal before winter exams and a seminar in the spring that helped members 
to better manage their time and priorities. LoCascio said, "Being a new organization, we are open to new 
ideas and doing something new every year." ■ by garret hiller

Breakdancing Club 

Whenever and wherever they started to perform, they always 
created a commotion. With hip-hop blasted through the boom box along 
with flair-filled head-spinning moves made with, one could not help but to 
notice and appreciate the Breakdancing Club. Founded in 1997, this club 
grew to over 60 members, all filled with a passion to learn more skills and to 
perform. "We got together because we either enjoyed break dancing or anv 
of the elements of hip hop," said junior Jamie Vigilotta, club treasurer. "I 
saw people doing it at dances and clubs and thought it would be a lot of fun 
to try." 

Meeting every Tuesday and Thursday, they learned new moves 
and ideas from each other. However students not read}' to perform were 
welcomed because one did not have to breakdance to be part of the club, 
observers were allowed. Many students first saw the Breakdancing Club 
during Organization Night, an event that attracted a majority of its new 

Members performed in front of many audiences during the year. 
At the end of each semester they performed with Madison Dance in Godwin 
Hall. They also held an annual event in March called "Circles" that grew 
bigger each year. All the proceeds from Circles went to a charity that was 
decided before the competition. Different breakdancers "battled" each other 
by attempting to outmaneuver one another. The event was judged and the 
best b-boy crew was rewarded with a prize. The competition was entertaining 
to watch, with crazy moves and an exciting atmosphere that even students 
who did not breakdance found enjoyable. 

Friendships were strong in this group and many of the members 
hung out outside of club events. "I love it, it is so much fun." said Vigilotta. 
"I am surrounded by a close group of friends and it was just fun to be out 
there in front of a crowd of cheering people doing what you love." ■ bytoniduncan

them develop a stronger and more womanly character, broaden their moral 
intellectual life, and assist them in every possible way. 

The Gamma Tau chapter of the sorority, numbering 140 sisters,

Delta Gamma 

Celebrating their 20th anniversary on campus. Delta Gamma (AD 
commemorated two successful decades. Based on the principles of personal 
integrity, personal responsibility and intellectual honesty; Ar worked on 
strengthening their friendships as well as promoting educational and cultural 
interest through out the Harrisonburg community. This diverse group of 
1 00 women were extremely involved around campus, while still participating 
in social events that promoted sisterhood. 

Every year Ar sponsored Anchor Splash, a week-long fundraiser 
that raised money for Service of Sight, their national philanthropy as well as 
the Virginia School tor the Deaf and Blind. President Laura McRoberts 
said that she was proud of Anchor Splash because, "it has been successful 
year after year in raising thousands of dollars." Teams from other Greek 
organizations and the SGA competed and assisted with the events. There 
were basketball and volleyball competitions between the organizations and 
pool games at UREC. There were also penny wars on the Commons, where 
students dropped their change into jars labeled lor a each different Greek 
organization. Each organization wanted to be the one with the most money, 
to show that thev had the most support. The week concluded with a pageant, 
a favorite ol many in which all of the Greek organizations showed off their 
respective talents. 

Delta Gamma also partook in social events around campus. Thev 
helped other groups' philanthropies, held sisterhood retreats every semester 
where they get to know their sisters better and created stronger friendships, 
had mixers and they also participated in the annual Greek Week. "Basically 
we try to make even-thing we do fun — even the business meetings," said 
McRoberts. To help promote academics in their organization, they formed 
study groups that allowed sisters to tutor each other. They also participated 
as a group in intramural sports through UREC. These women became 
genuine friends and "had a house full of happy sisters," McRoberts said. 
"There are strong bonds between our sisters that continue to grow all the 
time. ' ubytoniduncan

Delta Sigma Pi 

Delta Sigma Pi, the country's foremost professional business fraternity, was founded on 
November 7, 1907 at New York University'. AZFl fostered the study of business in universities and 
brought students of commerce closer to the commercial world around them. AIXI. The Iota Kappa 
chapter was founded on April 21, 1974 at Madison College in Harrisonburg, VA. The Iota Kappa 
chapter of AZn, approximately 75 members strong, prided itself on being a close-knit brotherhood of 
business majors. These brothets shared common goals and values, and they strived together for success 
both during and after college when they would be immersed in the business world. The Iota Kappa 
Chapter held an annual Seesaw-A-Thon each fall to raise money tor the American Cancer Society. No 
matter how rainy or cold it got, brothers rode the seesaw on the Commons for seven days straight, 
twenty-four hours a day. The fraternity also awarded a scholarship to a business student each year in 
honor of AXIl brother Michael Matthew Brown who died of cancer in 1 992. In the spring, ASXI 
sponsored a 5K run to raise money for the American Cancer Society. The brodiers incorporated their 
ideals into each activity the}- undertook, growing in their brotherhood throughout the year. ■ by garret hiller

Equestrian Club 

Although the Equestrian Club started onlv four years ago, thev 
have had much success, winning three national titles and a cacchione cup. 
With approximately 60 members, from beginners to advanced, the 
Equestrian Club encouraged and developed equestrian abilities and 
promoted activities that dealt with both horses and competitive riding. 

Competing against area schools like Radford, University of Virginia 
and Washington and Lee, the Equestrian Club held its own and often came 
out on top. "We have sent 1 1 riders to Nationals and we made up half of 
the Zone Ail-Star team," said vice president senior Jamie Auletto. "All riders 
were encouraged to compete as much as the}' could on whatever level they 
could." The teams were judged on a point system, with each level receiving 
points that were then totaled in the end, this made beginners as important 
to have as experienced riders. 

When they were not competing, community sen-ice played a large 
role in the Equestrian Club. They had collected over 900 cans of food that 
was donated to the local food bank. They also assisted in Horses Christmas 
along with Bridgewater College. Horses Christmas was an event in which 
all area school children were invited to watch a costume contest involving 
the horses. The horses were paraded around and candy was given to the 
children. Both Mr. and Mrs. Claus made an appearance as well. The club 
also participated in UREC's "Warm-A- Winter Wish" program. 

The club shared a strong passion for horses because many members 
had been riding for a long time. "We love horses and ride for the pure 
enjoyment of it," said president, senior Maria Sinopoli. "Every member of 
the club was brought together through this shared passion and have bonded 
in ways that were horse-related and not." This bond was shown through the 
amount of time they spent together outside of practice. They participated 
in UREC fitness classes, bowling and other social gatherings. Still a relatively 
young organization, the Equestrian Club's past success pointed toward an 
even brighter future. ■ bytoniduncan

Latter-Day Saints Student 


Latter-Day Saints Student Associa- 
tion was a group that sought to uplift 
students spiritually and to provide 
wholesome activities. 

The primary purpose of Low Key 
was to promote a cappella music 
throughout the university and Harrison- 
burg communities. The group was 
founded in the fall of 2000 and partici- 
pates in annual events such as Camp 
Heartland Halloween Concert, Opera- 
tion Smile, and Operation Santa Claus. 

The Madison Dance Club pro- 
vided a creative outlet for dancers to 
express themselves through several 
genres of dance including jazz, hip-hop 
and lyrical.

Eta Sigma Gamma 

Eta Sigma Gamma was the National Health Science Honotaty. 
The primary purpose of EETwas to provide an opportunity for members 
in che Health Science field, to become acquainted with and enjoy the 
fellowship of students and faculty whose professional interests were in the 
health science discipline. This was achieved through learning, research, 
service and teaching. 

EZrhas grown, and currently has about 60 active members. Rectuitment 
takes place every fall and initiation is held in the middle of the spring 
semester. The pledge period is a time for new members to bond through 
participating in various service activities. 

The university's chapter of EST" was very active in the area of 
service. The organization participates in the MS Walk and Relay tor Life 
every year. In the most recent year, EZr planned on hosting a concert to 
benefit Opetation Smile, and also to host a drug and alcohol free dance for 
an area middle school. 

In addition to theit weekly meetings and service events, time was 
set aside for social events that gave members an opportunity to further 
bond. The leaders of EST felt that they could be more effective as an 
organization if they had a closet bond, and the social events provided them 
with the means to that end. These events ranged from the homecoming 
patade, to ice cream socials, to pizza parties, and even semi-fotmals. "Being 
in EZrhas made it so much easiet to get to know students in my major 
and also get to know teachers, which has been very beneficial to me," ELY 
Treasurer Molly Roberts said. 

"I feel so blessed to be a part of this organization," EZrPtesident 
Erin Blevins said. "It has opened my eyes to the needs of the community 
and has given me an oppottunitv to give back. It is wondetful to have an 
otganization to unite students and faculty who want to spread awareness of 
current health issues throughout the community'." ■ by garret hiller

Delta Sigma Theta 

Focused on sisterhood, scholarship and service, members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Inc. lota 
Alpha chapter assisted the community. This sorority was mainly service based. President Claytor said. "I 
wanted to part of this group because it focused on community outreach." Chartered on December 11, 
1971, this organization has worked hard at upholding its ideals of service. 

Delta Sigma Theta went into the Harrisonburg community, offering their services where needed. 
At the Boys and Girls Club, they played with children and assisted with activities. Twice a semester, the 
sisters helped clean up a stretch of highway through the Adopt A Highway program. In addition, they could 
be found in the soup kitchens on the first Wednesday of even,' month. They helped in preparing the dining 
areas, making and serving the food. 

Throughout the year they also tried to make the university a better place, holding Delta Focus 
discussions open to anyone and everyone. In these talks people would discuss many different issues; one 
included a talk on fitness that took place at UREC. Participating in the step show and hosting a Chose Your 
Flavor date option, these sisters added to the run atmosphere on campus. They also hosted their annual 
party in the P.C. Ballroom. This year's theme was "the 80s," and everyone on campus was welcome to 

"I have been empowered by this movement," said Claytor. "I was able to do so much with the help 
of all my girls." AZT accomplished a great deal, creating long-lasting positive benefits to the community and 
campus. ■ by toni duncan

Club Field Hockey 

Affiliated with the National Field Hockey League, Club Field Hockey was founded to provide 
interested girls and guys the opportunity to play field hockey without the time commitment demanded 
by plaving at the varsity level. This student-coached group had a two-fold purpose: to improve their 
field hockev skills and to form friendships. The team was very competitive and they had a verv successful 

Plaving in games and tournaments throughout Virginia, North Carolina and Maryland, these 
girls came out on top. Having played amazingly well, they qualified for the Final Four Tournament by 
winning the Southern Division. "We worked hard all season long and offseason too. The Final Four 
was always our goal and it took the entire team for us to get there. It was amazing to see all that hard 
work pay off when we got to that level," said president junior Carrie Moser. In the spring they also 
hosted a tournament. 

When they were not practicing, this club tried to give back to their community by participating 
in various service events. Last winter they participated in UREC's Warm a Winter Wish program, in 
which they adopted a family for Christmas. They also made Christmas cards and Valentines for nursing 
home residents. The service they were most proud of was cooking dinner for the residents of Mercv 
House, every week. 

With a group that was together a large portion of their day, strong friendships grew between 
the 60-70 members. Supporting each other before even' game, they held team dinners, pasta or pizza 
parties and had secret buddies. During their away games, it was tradition for them to go out to eat 
together. They also enjoyed social events with members of other club teams. With great attitudes, 
dedication and the desire for excellence, the Field Hockey Club ended their season with great playing 
and stronger friendships. Said Moser, "We did real!}' great and we had a lot of fun." ■ bytoniduncan

in P.C. Ballroom. Although 
the concert was short, it 
was well attended and 
given good reviews by its 
dedicated audience. The 
concert concluded with 
"Celebration" by Kool and 
The Gang and "She's Out 
of My Life" by 98 Degrees* 

Delighting students and the Harrisonburg community with their 
vocal prowess and harmonizing abilities, all-male a cappella group Exit 245 
was just doing what came naturally to them. They were entertaining people 
by sharing their love of music. The group was founded in 1998, and in 
2003 still counted in its ranks two of its original members. Since the creation 
of the group. Exit 245 has grown from 14 to 19 members. The men of Exit 
245 prided themselves on being a very casual and approachable group. They 
also tried to do as many concerts as they could so as many people as possible 
would have the opportunity to see them perform. 

Exit 245 traveled tar and wide to expose people to their gift of 
song by partaking in two or three big road trips a year. Exit 245 business 
manager, senior Steven Clark enjoyed the travels with his fellow group 
members. "Part ot the fun [or being in Exit 245] is getting to hang out and 
bond with the others guys on the trips," Clark said. Exit 245 performs 
annually lor multiple causes including Camp Heartland, Zeta Tau Alphas 
concert for breast cancer awareness, and Operation: Santa Claus. 

Some of the members' favorite shows included their visits to 
elementary and middle schools because there they were able to interact 
with the kids and conduct mini-workshops that got the kids onstage to sing 
along with the group. In addition, it was not unusual to find the group 
throughout the year serenading lucky students in the residence halls with 
"Happy Birthday." 

One of the big projects for Exit 245 this year was the making of 
their third CD, released in May. Clark said that Exit 245 members chose 
songs thev would like to be on the CD, arranged them, and then the whole 
group collectively voted on which songs would make the cut. The CD 
contained the group's versions of such classics like "Jesse's Girl" and 
"Freshmen," as well as popular contemporary songs by Custer and Eve 6.

Fencing Club 

Students wanting the unique opportunity to learn the basics of the sport of 
fencing, found a home with the Fencing Club. Holding meetings almost every night 
of the week, each night corresponding to different levels of fencing, these students 
increased their skills all while having fun. With a focus on teaching and competing, 
the Fencing Club grew to about 40 members. 

Members had the opportunity to learn three weapons. Beginners started off 
with the Foil. This weapon was probably one of the most complicated because there 
were many rules to be followed. When one used the Foil, they could only be hit from 
the ground to their shoulder and not their arms. The second weapon was the Epee. 
This was sturdier and the whole body was the target area. Finally, the third weapon 
was the Saber, which only allowed waist-up hits. 

While they were still hoping to get their own coach, the members of the 
Fencing Club helped teach each other. They participated in the U.S. Fencing Association 
competitions, allowing them to compete against other schools and clubs. "Fencing is 
an individual sport," said president, senior Leah McCombe. "But we always cheered 
each other and supported each other." The Fencing Club represented their Duke dog 
pride at these competitions, always wearing one purple sock and one gold sock. 

Understanding the benefits of community service, each of the members were 
required to participate in at least one event a semester; however, many chose to do 
more. Members volunteered at the Society for the Prevention of the Cruelty to Animals, 
the Little Grill Soup kitchen. Warm a Winter Wish, and Relay for Life. As a group, 
thev volunteered at a WVPT fundraiser for public television during their fine arts 
auction. The Fencing Club assisted by carrying out paintings and answering phones. 
They also participated with the Valley Voice, which is a radio and television service for 
the blind. With all of their practices, competitions and volunteer work, this group 
grew close. "These people were awesome," said McCombe. "They were the most 
interesting people I have ever met, I have learned a lot from them and it has been a 
great experience."! bytoniduncan 

Fencers practice their 
skills before their next 
tournament. Fencing 
required concentration, 
dedication and practice.

International Circle K 

It*- A 

With a strong commitment to community service, Circle K International Service Organization 
gave back to the Harrisonburg community. "Circle K is part of" the K-family," said club president, junior 
Latrisha Lamanna. "There is the Kiwanis branch that business persons partake in to help with betterment 
projects, there is Key Club for high schoolers, Builders Club for middle school and kids and K-Kids for 
elementary kids and then there is us." By promoting leadership and innovation, Circle K employed many- 
creative ways to aid the community through out the entire year. 

With 40 active members willing to go out and serve the community, Circle K successfully completed 
many projects. They participated in the Adopt-A-Grandparent program at Sunnyside Nursing Home. They 
also assisted Camelot Nursing Home with various activities. They helped with bingo, they wheelchair square- 
danced, and distributed homemade cards. Circle K members also went to the local SPCA and gave the 
animals some tender loving care. Members also assisted at the Boys and Girls Club, Social Services, Salvation 
Army, Mercy House, Valley Voice, Animal Rights Coalition and Valley AIDS Network. 

The Special Olympics was another organization that Circle K helped. They assisted with all of the 
sports such as track and field, volleyball and basketball by keeping score, clocking times, helping with the set 
up or by cheering on these special athletes. Circle K also corresponded with fifth graders at a nearby elementary 
school. "My favorite activity we did was writing to the fifth graders," said junior Shannon Laily. "We got the 
cutest letters back and you felt like you had impacted them in some way. At the end of the year we had a big 
party and we got to meet them for the first time." 

Through all of their hard work. Circle K upheld their mission of providing lifelong commitment to 
community service by giving their time, skills and endtusiasm to the Harrisonburg community. ■ bytoniduncan

The Madison Marketing Association 
was a non-profit organization that provided 
students the opportunity to receive mar- 
keting education, as well as build both 
professional and marketing skills for 
their future. MMA was founded in 
1982 as a collegiate chapter of the 
American Marketing Association. 

The primary purpose of the 
Madison Outing Club was to provide 
fun and exciting oppormnities for studen ts 
to experience outdoor sports. These 
sports included paint-balling, hiking, 
sky diving, snow tubing, snow skiing 
and white water rafting. 

The Madison Review provided an 
alternative source of news and opinion 
in its monthly publication. The review 
was an open publication, inviting students 
to discuss campus and national issues.

Established in the late 1970s, Hillel participated in educational, 
religious and social events, all with a Jewish focus. The organization 
welcomed all denominations of Judaism as well as people who were just 
interested in Judaism. 

They gave back to the campus and the community through both 
religious and non-religious means. They participated in the Interfaith 
September 1 1 service, a prayer service hosted by many different religions, 
held in remembrance of the victims and their families of the September 1 1 
terrorist attacks. They participated in the Interfaith Thanksgiving sen ice 
and supper as well. Members of Hillel also had coffee talks with Rabbis and 
partook in religious services for High Holidays. Collecting food for the 
hungry was another event for which they volunteered their time. Thev also 
participated in V-Day, the campus-wide volunteer dav. In an attempt to 
help high school seniors with the difficult decision of where to go to college, 
they assisted prospective Jewish students by offering to give tours. 

With a consistent membership of around 20, members enjoved 
spending time with each other, and did so frequently outside of meetings. 
"I really enjoyed Hillel because it gave me an opportunity to spend time 
with and meet other Jewish college students," said president, senior Amanda 
Wattenmaker. "I have met some incredible friends through Hillel, friends 
like I never imagined I would ever have." Members got together for a back 
to school ice cream social, giving them the opportunity to catch up with 
their old friends. During the winter months they went snow tubing and ice 
skating. Hillel members also went to a semiformal for all Virginia college 
Hillel branches. "Hillel was a wonderful place to be because of the people in 
it — everyone has so much heart, said Wattenmaker. Through the support 
of their peers, members ot Hillel grew spiritually and provided a positive 
impact on campus. ■ bytoniduncon

Inline Hockey 

The Inline Hockey Club strived to promote social and competitive 
relationships within the school community, stressing team building, and 
supporting the community through various service activities. 

The club or about 40 members, has a very proud history having 
placed high in the Eastern Collegiate Roller Hockey Association (ECRHA), 
and even graduated one of the league's first Most Valuable Players. In 
addition, they have strong alumni support, and earned bids to Nationals 
twice in the last five seasons. This past year, the club earned a bid to winter 

The team members had a deep commitment to giving back to the 
community and were rewarded for their service. Last season they earned the 
ECRHA league-wide community service award. 

Club president Gary LaBelle led the team and it proved to be a 
rewarding experience. "This year we have worked hard, forming tremendous 
bonds. Many of the players will be living together next year," LaBelle said. 
"This is a testament to the example set by our predecessors, who worked 
hard to build a highly social club, with tight interpersonal relationships. 
The competition is fierce, and the friendships are phenomenal." ■ by garret hitler

Kappa Kappa Psi was founded in 1 980. They assisted both the music program and the community 
through their services. The co-ed honorary service fraternity's primary purpose was to serve the college 
band by assisting during pre-game and post-game events. 

With approximately 40 members, there were many hands willing to serve. Members participated 
n a "Wampler Shift" where they helped out the music office for one hour, performing any activities that 
the music department needed them to do. During football games, members of this fraternity were often 
behind the scenes, helping out in the band pit. They cleaned up the area, supplied water and supported the 
band with their enthusiasm and spirit. They also ushered during music recitals and helped with band 
camps. Kappa Kappa Psi also participated in the Relay for Life, Adopt-A-Family and Adopt-A-Highway 

In order to join the fraternity, each brother had to be in a band program for at least one semester. 
This love of music bonded the members together, creating a close-knit group. "This group created a home 
or me," said club historian, senior Michael Jenkins. "This was a place where I could go and they always 
ccepted me." 

While the main purpose was for service to the band, the group created strong friendships through 

ocial events. The organization was broken up into five families, all descending from the founding fathers, 

to help members get to know one another better. They also held progressive dinners with different brothers 

cooking. "Those were really fun, you got to know everyone much better afterwards," said Jenkins. During 

the holiday season they had a gift exchange between the brothers. 

Their passion for music brought these brothers together, but it was through their service and 
social events that they became as Jenkins describes "one big happy family." ■ by toni duncan

Interfraternity Council 


The second round of 
fraternity rush on the 
Commons brings 
many prospective 
students despite the 
cold weather. The 
Interfraternity Council 
was the source of all 
events planned to 
promote the 14 
chapters on campus. ■

The Interfraternity Council (IFC) was the governing bodv for 
the men's fraternities on campus. The mission of the IFC was to create a 
system of continuity and to provide general guidelines for all of the fourteen 
chapters recognized at the university. The mission was met by the IFC 
providing a forum for discussion between chapters and by fostering spirit, 
encouragement, and growth within chapters. 

The 14 IFC-recognized fraternities accounted for approximately 
800 fraternity men at the university. Two delegates from each chapter, 
making 28 total, were appointed by their chapter as representatives at weekly 
delegate meetings. IFC also worked closely with their sorority counterpart, 
the Panhellenic Council, to unify the entire fraternity/sorority community. 

The IFC Executive Board was the administrative body of the 
Council. The Board consisted of 1 elected leaders from various fraternities. 
The board ran weekly delegate meetings chaired bv the president. 

Like the American government, the IFC was comprised of three 
branches: Executive, Legislative, and Judicial. The executive board governed 
the council, the weekly delegate meetings served as the legislative body, 
and the judicial system held the member chapters accountable. 

President s Meetings wete conducted everv other week bv the IFC 
president. These developmental meetings led to a fraternity system in which 
the presidents felt comfortable speaking candidlv to one another, and most 
importantly, learned from the successes and failures of one another. The 
IFC also worked with individual fraternity and sororitv chapters to complete 
community service projects for their own chapters. The Community Service 
Chairman was a valuable resource for the individual chapters. 

Senior Scott Ewert served on the IFC executive boatd for two 
years, one as Judicial Chairman and the other as President. "Being a member 
of the IFC executive board has been one of the most rewarding experiences 
I have had," Ewert said. I have made lifelong friends in each of our fraternities 
and sororities that I would not have met had I not been a part of the IFC. 
I feel confident that I have left the IFC and our fraternity system stronger 
than when I came into office two years ago." ■ by garret hiller

Madison Project 

Founded in 1 996 as the university's first all-male a cappella group, 
Madison Project amazed audiences with their blended voices and eclectic 
sound. Wearing their traditional uniform of a shirt, tie and khakis, the guys 
performed steadily throughout the year. 

While their voices were amazing, it was often their stage presence 
that audiences. They always appeared to be having fun and getting into 
their music. "That's the reason I joined Madison Project," said president 
senior Adam Suritz. "Those guys always looked like they were having fun 
on stage and I wanted to be part of that." 

They closed Sunset on the Quad, receiving two encores from a 
very enthusiastic audience. Singing favorites like "Take me Home Tonight" 
and "Out of Africa," the audience refused to let them leave. They performed 
at many other events, including Zeta Tau Alpha's Breast Cancer Benefit 
Show, Operation Santa Claus, CASA/Mercy House benefit, Guardian Angel 
School fundraiser and the Virginia Silhouettes Megan Stoker Leukemia 
Benefit. Since their shows brought big crowds, Madison Project helped to 
raise a substantial amount of money each year. Madison Project also made 
dorm appearances and performed special for special friends' birthdays. 

With such a busy schedule, it was a surprise that the guys had 
time to go back to the studio to record a new CD. However, their new 
album, entitled Rock Star, was released January 28. Titles on the CD included 
popular songs from all different music genres like, "Take me Home Tonight," 
"Your Body is a Wonderland," "Your Song," and "Livin on a Prayer." Suritz 
said, "This CD took twice as long as the others to make, but it is definitely 
our best one. We have some really awesome songs on there." 

Through all their performances and their dedicated work on their 
CD, these guys became a closer-knit group. Said Suritz, "We are brothers, 
friends, band mates. This is one of the most fun things I have done in 
college." ■ bytoniduncan

Kappa Pi 

Kappa Pi, the international art and art history honor fraternity, has been building friendships 
and promoting service since the 1 980s. The fraternity provided opportunities for brothers to enrich the 
community through volunteer and art-related activities. With 60 members and a large pledge class, 
president senior Emily Smith described her brothers as, "caring, creative and enthusiastic." 

Every spring, Kappa Pi held their Very Special Arts Festival, which was a day of arts and crafts 
for special education children. They set up tables with different activities for these children to participate 
in, including basic arts and crafts such as macaroni necklaces and making shapes out of clay. Other 
organizations, such as dance groups, got involved in this event as well. 

Kappa Pi also tried to assist their fellow art students. In the spring semester they sponsored the 
Student Art Show & Sale featuring only student art. They also held their first ever used art supply sale, 
which they hoped to make an annual event. Art supplies were very expensive, so it was a great way for 
art majors to save on materials required for their classes. 

Brothers also had the opportunity to assist the university in portfolio reviews. High school 
seniors who were considering art as a major brought their portfolios in during the months of November, 
December and January to have the brothers of Kappa Pi look over them and make helpful suggestions. 

Smith felt that the brothers became closer then they had been in previous years. "Since many 
seniors graduated last year, we had a smaller group and as a result we knew each odier better. We had parties 
and most of us hung out outside of the meetings and events." Through this support and friendship, the 
brothers of Kappa Pi better served die community with dieir artistic talents. ■ by toni duncan

New & Improvd 

New and Improv'd delighted audiences for yet another year with 
their original brand of improvisational comedy. The group performed at 
many events and fundraisers on campus, creating greater demand for their 
act and solidifying an already impressive reputation. New and Lmprov.'d 
Vice-President and Director, senior Steve Jacobs said, "We've done a few 
shows to raise money for charitable causes, which is also a lot of fun. 
Performing for good causes makes me feel warm and fuzzy, as I'm sure it 
does the rest of the group. 

Though New and Improv'd was often called in to assist other 
organizations with their fundraisers, the group still produced their annual 
spring charity event: Improv Bowl. This event, which took place just after 
the Super Bowl each year, involved a competition-style improv gala/fun- 
fest, with all of the resulting proceeds distributed to a local charity. Jacobs 
said, "Lately, we've been trying to break away from the mentality that 
every improv group is like Whose Line Is It Anyway. I don't know if we 
really did it, and people might just see us as TV clones, but at least we felt 
a little better about ourselves." 

Jacobs looked back on his tenure with New and Improv'd with 
fond memories. "My last two years in the group have been awesome, and 
I'm gonna miss it when I graduate this May. Of all of our shows so far this 
year, I think I liked the freshman orientation show best," he said. "Grafton- 
Stovall was packed, and we had a good night. Nothing beats the feeling of 
making 600-something people laugh out loud." ■ by garret hiller

Optimist Kids' Klub 

The Optimist Kids Klub was unique among the university's 
student organizations in that it was devoted entirely for the children of 
Harrisonburg. The club provided positive role models and benefited the 
children in anv way they needed. The club was founded in 2000, and in 
the past vear added "Kids' Klub" to its previous name of "Optimist" in 
order to further the university's awareness ol its purpose. 

Forty-members strong, the club lived up to its purpose by 
participating in many service projects benefiting kids in Harrisonburg. 
From Kids' Day at the Ballpark to Monster Mash at the Valley Mall to 
Make Someone's Dav Great, Optimist Kids' Klub made its presence felt. 
In Kids' Day at the Ballpark, kids got their faces painted and enjoyed a 
ball game. During Monster Mash at the Valley Mall, the club helped a 
local organization with a costume contest and dance events on Halloween. 
Make Someone's Day Great was an event that allowed a committee of 
the club to spread inspiration and joy to individuals. 

Optimist Kids' Klub Co-President, Maria Debeauvernet said, 
"Kids' Klub gives me a little escape back into the world of children. At college 
you do not get many opportunities to play with kids. The children we work 
with are great, they make my week every time I see them." ■ by garret hiller

Latino Student Alliance 

Latino Student Alliance reached out to Hispanic students and students interested in Latin 
American culture in order to heighten awareness of this growing ethnicity on campus. 

Former grad student Chris Diaz created Club Latino in 1995 with the hope of uniting 
Latino students on campus. Since its founding, the organization evolved from a small group of 
friends into an organization that strived to unite all students on campus. The activities that the 
members participated in included Migrant Education, Salsarengue, Celebracion Latina, 
Organizational Roundtable, and more. The members of the club continually worked hard to get 
their name out in order to provide more community-wide awareness of Latino populations both on 
campus and in the Harrisonburg area. As LSA was the only organization on campus open to 
everyone interested in Latin American cultures, it attracted many types of people with varying 
levels of proficiency in Spanish. This in turn led to the club being contacted by outside 
organizations to volunteer in the Hispanic community. 

LSA planned many events that increased awareness and education about the Hispanic 
community' among students and the general public. Shadow-for-a-Day brought area high school 
students to the university to shadow club members and gain insight into college life. The club also 
sponsored Salsarengue, a Latino-style dance party. Members taught the merengue, salsa, and 
bachata informally for the first hour and students from other universities and the community were 
encouraged to attend. LSA remained steadfast in dieir community service commitments throughout the 
year, helping others learn more about Latino culture. ■ by garret hiller

The university's first co-ed a cappella group, the Overtones 
performed throughout the year, delighting many diverse audiences with 
their blended voices and unique choice of songs. "I really thought their 
sound was mature so I was excited about joining them," said sophomore 
Sara Tomko. "I felt like I could go the farthest with them and learn so 

The Overtones performed many crowd-pleasers such as Jagged 
Edge's "Where the Parry- At," U2's "Sweetest Thing" and Lynyrd Skynyrd's 
"Sweet Home Alabama." Their third CD was released the first week of 
May, an accomplishment of which they were very proud. The group also 
performed for many fundraisers on campus. They helped raise money 
for Camp Heartland, Eating Disorder Awareness and Breast Cancer 
Awareness by singing at benefit concerts. They also performed off campus, 
sharing their talents with the Harrisonburg community. They sang at 
elementary schools, retirement homes and business functions. 

With a group of 17 members, the Overtones were very close- 
knit. "We are a great big family," said junior Hilary Davies. "We had a 
retreat at my house in Baltimore, all of us went and we got to really bond 
with each other." Alumni stayed in touch and got together over the 
Thanksgiving holidays. The Overtones also kept up certain traditions 
through out the year. They always screamed out a cheer before performing 
at a concert. The girls also got for concerts ready together, applying their 
trademark glitter. 

While it was the love of music that brought this group together, 
it was their positive attitudes and fun spirits that made the Overtones a 
group of friends. "I joined my second week of freshman year, these people 
have made my college experience," said Davies. ■ bytoniduncan

Panhellenic Council 

The Panhellenic Council was the governing body of the eight 
sororities at the university. Its purpose was to promote fraternity 
relations, to further scholarship, and maintain high social and moral 

Panhellenic had its own creed, constitution, and by-laws that 
determined how their organization operated, as well as how all the 
sororities should operate. The organization had 10 elected executive 
members, one from each sorority, and a president and president-elect. 

In addition to their governing duties among the Greek 
associations, Panhellenic also participated in community service. The 
council sponsored two blood drives even' year. Members also helped to 
create New Member Education Day in the tall of 2002 in which even' 
member of a sororirv or fraternitv participated in several educational 
seminars about campus and community laws, eating disorders, and 
leadership. Panhellenic supported all sorority philanthropy events and 
strove to make positive changes both in sorority life and that of the 
surrounding community. ■ by garret hiller

Nationally founded in 1916, Phi Sigma Pi was established in 
1996 on campus. With requirements of at least a 3.0 GPA and dedication 
to service, Phi Sigma Pi attracted many bright, spirited and devoted 
members. Since Phi Sigma Pi was one ot the largest honor fraternities on 
campus, they were able to sponsor and assist with many service projects. 

Members of Phi Sigma Pi worked to excel in the areas of 
scholarship, leadership and fellowship. "This group encompasses so many 
different aspects of school," said senior Sarah Grady. 

Their dedication to community service was shown throughout 
the year. They held a 5k run in the fall that raised more than $2000 for 
Multiple Sclerosis. With over 200 participants, the event was very 
successful. The brothers also continued their sleep out on the Commons 
event, that helped to raise money for and awareness of Multiple Sclerosis. 
They also sponsored blood drives, tutored at a local elementary school 
and participated in the Adopt-A-Highway program as well as Relay for 
1 ,ife. Even though they were very busy, they found time to work on a new 
project during the year, a scholarship foundation in remembrance of 
Meghan Stidham, a former Phi Sigma Pi member. 

While service was their primary focus, they did take time off to 
have fun. They held formals and socials at Melrose. During the winter 
months they went snow tubing at Massanutten, while during the warmer 
months some members went sky diving and camping. A trip to Mardi 
Gras was also enjoyed. "I love being in Phi Sigma Pi," said Grady. "Everyone 
is so diverse. I was able to learn so much about leadership and the 
Harrisonburg community all because everyone had something different to 
offer." ■ by garret hitler

Sigma Kappa 

Uniting its members through sincere friendships, Sigma Kappa 
promoted strong character by being active in both community and social 
projects. The Delta Rho chapter or Sigma Kappa was rounded in 1959 
and strove to follow the national tradition of "one heart, one way." 

\\ ith 147 members, Sigma Kappa remained very active in 
community service. They mainly supported three organizations: 
Gerontology, Alzheimer's Association and the Maine Sea Coast Mission. 
Their aid to Gerontology consisted of volunteering at the Bridgewater 
Nursing Home as well as participating in the Adopt-A-Grandparent 

In addition to helping their philanthropies. Sigma Kappa also 
assisted in other community events. "I love Sigma Chi's Derby Days," 
said senior Rvan Chrisman. "We all reallv got into it, we participated in 
the dances, penny wars, the games and all the money went to the Boys 
and Girls Club." 

Sigma Kappa also focused on scholarship. Each sister was 
encouraged to excel academicallv. At the end of the semester sisters held 
the traditional "Chicken, Steak and Bean" scholarship program to 
recognize sisters who earned high grade point averages for the semester. 
Being a social sorority, these girls had fun and built long-lasting 
friendships. "We are a reallv diverse group of people," said Chrisman. 
"Everyone contributes to different areas. These people are my best friends 
and have made some of mv greatest memories. I'm going to be proud to 
look back and say I was a Sigma Kappa. ■ bytoniduncan

Madison Motorsports 

lar enthusiasts bonded through Madison Motorsports. a new organization this year. "I 
joined because I wanted to find people who were as into cars as I was," said Vice President sophomore 
Hunter Brown. Members participated in auto crossing, flagged for races, spectated races as well as 
hosted a car show. 

Auto crossing was one of the more popular events. A parking lot was rented and closed off so 
that an intricate course or cones could be set up. Participants would then drive through the course 
trying to keep a fast pace while working on their accuracy. The course was timed, and die person with 
the lowest time was the winner. The cars reached speeds up to about 70 mph. 

With a membership ot about 100 people, Madison Motorsports did a lot of traveling as a 
group. They went to Summit Point, West Virginia, Virginia International Raceway in Danville, and 
Richmond International Raceway in Richmond, Virginia to spectate and flag at races. 

One of their biggest on-campus events was their annual car show. Held in the Spring, there 
were more than 40 cars of all genres. This event allowed students to learn more about cars and helped 
to build interest in the club. The club also held tech days where members shared tools and taught each 
other about various car maintenance issues. 

Meeting ever)' two weeks, members enjoyed dinners together and hanging out in their spare 
time. "These guys are lots of fun.' said Brown. "We have similar interests so we get along really well." 
With popularity growing throughout the year, Madison Motorsports was able to participate in many 
events and educate members on all the fine points of racing cars. ■ bytoniduncan 



Madison Society 

Members of Madison Society accomplished many of their goals this year and grew closer as a 
group. Based on their principle, "spirit through tradition, tradition through spirit," members promoted 
school spirit during athletic events as well as Madison Week. This year marked their fifth anniversary. 

Members were seen enthusiastically cheering on the Dukes at athletic events. They also made 
the purple and gold balloon archways at both the football and basketball games. Two to three hours 
before a game they took hundreds of balloons, a helium tank and fishing wire and got to work creating 
their masterpieces. "It's a lot of work, but people really seem to like it and they turn out great," said 

Their assistance during Madison Day and Madison Week was very beneficial to the school. 
Madison Society acted as the student voice on committees, informing the panels what students wanted 
to participate in. 

In the spring, Madison Society worked hard to create Project Paws. Their vision was to have 
painted Duke Dog paw prints around campus — each one sponsored by separate clubs. "Many schools 
show their spirit in this way and I think it would add something to the campus," said Conley. By 
promoting the traditions and history of the school, Madison Society helped to create a more spirited 
campus and encourage students to be proud of their university. ■ by toni duncan

Established in 1869, Sigma Nu celebrated their 30th anniversary 
on campus last fall. With a strong brotherhood promoting their ideals of 
Love, Truth and Honor, Sigma Nu gave back to their community and enjoyed 
their year. Describing his brothers as "friendly, smart and respectful," senior 
Stephen Mathieu explained that he had grown from being in Sigma Nu 
through the services and friendships. 

Sigma Nu took great effort in helping those in need throughout 
the community. Sigma Nu raised money for Make-A-Wish in their annual 
"Hoops for Kids" program. They worked with Delta Delta Delta to make 
their basketball marathon a success, raising over $2000 in all. The brothers 
also volunteered at a local elementary school where they created an art 
workshop with many different stations. Classes would take turns going to the 
workshop where the children could do spin art, Egyptian art and other various 

Although community service was very important to them, Sigma 
Nu also dedicated their time to promote stronger friendships by participating 
in many social events. They created a team and played in the intramural 
sports like football, soccer, basketball and volleyball. They also took trips up 
to Massanutten to go tubing and hosted barbecues. 

Leadership and scholarship were also encouraged. Brothers 
supported one another in their endeavors. "I have found that Sigma Nu gave 
me an opportunity to become a leader," said junior Andy Pak. "I have seen 
our fraternity move into the right direction with our community service and 
just with each other." With members continuing to push themselves to be 
better men, Sigma Nu upheld their ideals and impacted the community in a 
positive wav. ■ by toni duncan

Sigma Sigma Sigma 

Sigma Sigma Sigma was founded at Longwood College in 1 898. 
There were eight original founders and the open motto of the sorority was 
"Faithful Until Death." 

Sigma Sigma Sigma strove to promote community service through 
their philanthropy, Sigma Serves Children. The sorority promoted strong 
womanly character and sistethood with everything they engaged in. 

Tri Sigma President, senior Jessi Fulton spoke with praise about 
the women of her sorority and the bonds they created with each other. 
"Our organization consists of 160 very diverse, talented and enthusiastic 
women of the JMU community," Fulton said. "Although we have all joined 
Tti Sigma for different reasons, it is a safe bet that after being initiated, 
almost even' woman will say that the most impottant aspect of this sorority 
is the friendships she has made within the Tri-Sigma sisterhood." 

Fulton also recounted the admirable charity efforts of Tri Sigma. 
"We take great pride in our annual Cake Walk to raise awareness for eating 
disorders and our Kickball Tournament, which is open to the entire student 
bod}', for our National Philanthropy - Robbie Page Foundation for children's 
play therapy," Fulton said. "Involving our sorority in the philanthropic 
events of other chapters on this campus is another great way for our 
sisterhood to grow stronger, as well. Greek Week and Greek Sing are a 
passion - not just a hobby - for Tri-Sigma." ■ by garret hitler

Note-oriety, the university's premier all-female a cappella group, completed another successful 
year of mesmerizing audiences with their vocal prowess and engaging harmonies. Their concerts were 
not merely work for them, but opportunities that displayed the level of love and pride that went into 
their craft. 

Note-oriety was established in 1 998 and has covered songs by such artists as Whitney Houston 
and Tori Amos. Every year the group sought to develop an entirely new repertoire. Note-orietys most 
recent CD was tecorded in December of 2001, with the group typically recording one album every 
two years. Because the group enjoyed performing so much, they put on dozens of concerts in the span 
of a year. Among these concerts were their annual ZTA Breast Cancer Awareness Concert, and the 
Camp Heartland Halloween Benefit Concert. The group also gave a Christmas show and an End of 
the Year performance. 

Junior Pamela Hoover, Business Manager of the all-female a cappella group said, "Note- 
oriety has given me, and dozens of other girls, the opportunity to share in music, performance, and 
friendship. From the time I auditioned, to now, the second semester of my junior year, I have felt a 
unique connection to these girls that is unlike any other group experience I've had. We are a diverse 
group of girls that share the same values and goals, which motivates us greatly during our rehearsals 
and concerts to work our hardest and to show the community 'what we've got! " ■ by garret hiller

Student Ambassadors 

The Student Ambassadors made a significant and positive 
impact on campus. Giving about 2,500 tours to 30,000 people, the 
Student Ambassadors were a very well known presence at the university. 
The responsibility of giving tours was a large one since 32% of college 
freshmen said that the tour given at a college made a big impact on 
where they chose to attend. 

Student Ambassadors held their annual Operation Santa Claus 
(OSC) to collect money and toys for Harrisonburg children during the 
holiday season. This popular event included a screening of the animated 
"The Grinch Who Stole Christmas," door prizes and performances by a 
cappella groups. OSC raised more than $1500 and collected more than 
300 toys. 

Ambassadors' genuine love for their school helped bring the 
members closer together. In an organization with 100 to 150 members, 
they made families with "bigs" and "littles" so new members felt 
welcomed. They also held Halloween and St. Patricks Day parties along 
with semi-formals each semester. An overnight retreat also helped to bring 
the ambassadors closer together. "These people are my best friends," said 
senior Stephen Clark. "We hang out together a lot outside of designated 
ambassador events." 

Student Ambassadors partook in homecoming festivities, had 
tailgate parties before football games and enthusiastically cheered on the 
dukes at sporting events. The Student Ambassadors represented their 
school proudly and positively through service projects, positive attitudes 
and spirit, mbytoniduncan

Commited to the five values of friendship, knowledge, service, morality and excellence, the 
brothers of Phi Gamma Delta worked hard to uphold their valued traditions that dated back to the 
national founding in 1848. Colonized on campus in 1993 and chartered in 1994, the Mu Chi chapter 
of Phi Gamma Delta, also known as FIJI, created a strong brotherhood and has continually made a 
significant impact on campus. 

Service was a high priority among the brothers, shown through their dedication to helping 
the community. Members participated in Shots for Tots, which raised money to help combat multiple 
sclerosis in children. Phi Gamma Delta also assisted the Harrisonburg community, volunteering at die 
Salvation Army and Mercy House. They took time out of their day to visit residents at Sunnyside 
Retirement Home as well. 

Being a social fraternity, FIJI planned many fun events throughout the year. They hosted and 
participated in many mixers and parties. The brothers also put together an intermural football team, 
strengthening their bonds through sports. 

With prominent Phi Gamma Delta graduates like Johnny Carson and Phil Knight, president 
of Nike, it was no surprise that these brothers worked hard and excelled in their endeavors. However, 
most members would agree that it was the friendships and their room to grow which made being in 
FIJI worthwhile. "The work we put into upholding our values makes us better men," said senior 
Historian Bobby Dozier. "What more can you ask from a fraternity like that?" ■ bytoniduncan

Boasting nearly 500 members, the Student Duke Club has 
come a long way since its founding in 2000. It began with only 17 
members, their ranks growing substantially larger every year. SDC 
promoted school spirit as well as support for the athletic teams through 
their activities. Cheering at football and basketball games, this group 
made their presence known. They wore matching shirts and chanted 
the fight song, encouraging their team as loudly as they could. They 
also attended many or the women's and men's soccer games. 

SDC went beyond sideline cheers, they also helped to organize 
social events at the games. They gave out hot chocolate at field hockey 
games and had a big baseball cookout. SDC also enjoyed tailgate parties 
outside or football games and road trips to give the Dukes some long 
distance support. 

Anyone and everyone was welcome to join the club. Each 
member paid $25 in dues that went to the club's Endowment 
Membership Fund to provide scholarships for student athletes. They 
also participated in fundraisers such as distributing programs before home 
football games. While meetings were not mandatory, SDC met as a 
group bimonthly. At most meetings a guest speaker, normally a coach of 
one of the sports, spoke to the members. 

While this group was large, they tried to get together to 
participate in other events to build strong friendships. They were involved 
in UREC's various intramural sports and also had two teams walk in 
Relay for Life. Members found that this club was a worthwhile 
experience. "I joined when I was a sophomore," said President senior 
Mark Hoskins. "I saw all the members and they looked like they were 
having fun. I wanted to get involved and I loved athletics, this club was 
perfect tor me. ■ bytoniduncan

Student Government Association 

The members of Student Government Association had another intense year grappling with 
important issues facing the university's community of students, faculty, and surrounding Harrisonburg 
residents. Among some of the most significant matters were the debate over providing front-end budgeting 
to student organizations like Black Student Alliance and National Association for the Advancement of 
Colored People, the voter registration drives and rallies for the bond referendum, and the mid-year 
increase in tuition. 

The SGA was the voice of the student body, representing the student perspective and working 
together to bring about positive changes for the school. The SGA was composed of five branches: The 
Executive Council, The Student Senate (including the Senate Standing Committees), Class Council, 
University Commissions and Committees, and a new leadership program: Students Educating And 
Leading Students (SEALS). All five branches were composed of elected and student-appointed members 
and operated entirely under student leadership. The SGA Constitution, created in 1976, was the 
framework by which the organization operated. 

The four executive council officers were elected in the spring of 2002 to serve a one-year term 
for the following school year. Junior Andrea Fischetti served as the Vice President of Administrative 
Affairs, the position directly underneath the president. "In this position I am responsible for appointing 
roughly 30 students to various commissions and committees within the university," Fischetti said. "I 
also coordinate student organization field requests, special events, etc. Informally, I serve as a direct link 
to bringing student concerns directly to the administration and communicating these effectively and 

Like all of the elected members of the SGA, Fischetti understood what an important role she 
was serving and worked diligently to represent her constituents. "I try my best to take this job seriously 
and treat it professionally; it is not unusual for those in my classes to see me dressed-up at least 3 or 4 
days a week because many of the meetings I attend fall during the school day, between my classes, with 
administrators, faculty, and other students," she said. "I think Student Government provides a great 
outlet for students interested in the decision-making process of the university." ■ by garret hitter

Swim Club 

A strong love and dedication to the sport of swimming brought 
the co-ed Swim Club together and led them to a great season. Swimmers 
of all levels were welcomed to participate in practices and some chose to 
compete. They traveled and competed against schools such as University 
of Virginia, William & Mary, Virginia Tech, University or Maryland and 
University of Pennsylvania. The Swim Club also hosted a meet each 

"I joined the club and decided to become president because I 
wanted to belong to an organization that involved something I love, with 
great people, that did amazing things for not only the school but also the 
community," said president junior Katie Mooney. 

Many members agreed that thev joined because they wanted to 
keep up their level of swimming and compete; however, they did not 
want to commit to the time that a varsity level sport demanded. The 
Swim Club met four davs a week, Monday through Thursdav, each practice 
led by a different officer. "At each practice you get in to the lane based on 
your ability," said junior Jennifer Jackson. "You learn a lot; it's just not as 
strenuous as a varsity swimming. 

Outside the pool, these athletes served the Harrisonburg 
community. They participated in the Multiple Sclerosis walk last fall. In 
the winter they supported a family through UREC's Warm-a- Winter- 
Wish program. During the spring, they created a team to partake in Relay 
for Life, a all-night walk to raise money for cancer research. 

"We work hard," said Jackson, "but we always have fun. We do 
lots of team dinners." These dinners allowed the athletes to bond and 
psych each other up tor upcoming competitions. "The swim club is an 
amazing place to meet some of your best friends, all while being able to 
compete in the sport you love," said Mooney. ■ bytoniduncan

The members or Tae Kwon Do Club set out to stimulate interest 
in their organization among students, faculty, and staff members as an art, 
a sport, and a means of self-defense. The Tae Kwon Do Club was established 
in 1981. Back then the club used a little corner in Godwin Hall to conduct 
their meetings. Over 20 years later, Tae Kwon Do had become a burgeoning 
sports club with upwards of 75 members. 

Among the incentives offered to the students of Tae Kwon Do 
were uniformed club certificates and the opportunity for advancement in 
rank. Students progressed based on their attitude, knowledge of TKD 
history, perfection of foundation, mastery of authentic TKD forms, 
knowledge and application of techniques, and completion of attendance 

The club also took time during the school year to participate in 
community service events and fundraisers. These events included Warm- 
a-Winter-Wish which the club participated in every year through the Sports 
Club Council, and Relay for Life where the team raised over Si 000 for 
cancer research. TKD also joined together in various other community 
service programs to help the university such as ROTC and self-defense 
classes. Tae Kwon Do Club President, junior Christina Graven said, "there 
are a lot of different levels in the club, based on experience, and it takes a 
lot [to get through them all]. The club has a lot of camaraderie - it's like 
one big family." ■ by garret hiller

The Breeze 

Students always looked forward to Monday and Thursday mornings, as that 
was when new editions of the university's twice-weekly newspaper, The Breeze, were 
distributed across campus. The publication celebrated its 80th year of existence and was 
as popular as ever among students with such enduring features like "Darts and Pats" 
and "Campus Spotlight." Prominent news items this past year included coverage ot the 
bond referendum and the mid-year tuition increase. 

The campus newspaper boasted a staff of 18 editors, about 20 advertising 
members, three full-time staffers, and approximately 200 senior, staff, and contributing 
writers. New writers were encouraged to submit their work and suggest fresh, original 
ideas for stories. Writing workshops were regularly held and conducted by the various 
editors to hand out writing assignments and to offer tips on how to properly write for 
The Breeze. Editor-in-Chief, senior Jeanine Gajewski said one of her goals for the year 
was to hold, "a big recruitment drive to get our name out there through fliers and open 
houses. It looks like it worked because now I get complaints about how there are too 
many writers." 

The Breeze staff worked many long hours in the stuffy basement of Anthony- 
Seeger but took pride in their efforts based on response by the student body. News 
Editor, junior Khalii Garriott said, "A lot ot work and a lot of hours go into making the 
Breeze but it's worth it. The work comes together and students seem to enjoy it."

Sigma Iota Alpha 

As the university's first Latino sorority, die Alpha Epsilon chapter of Sigma Iota Alpha 
worked hard to spread diversity through their community services. Founded in the spring of 
2000, die sisters strove to uphold their ideals of Solidarity, Inspiration and Friendship. Sigma Iota 
Alpha achieved their three goals: to increase awareness of Latino cultures, promote sisterhood 
and leadership and serve as models of excellence in academics and achievements by becoming 
role models throughout the university and Harrisonburg community. 

The ladies of Sigma Iota Alpha all took leadership roles. "1 gained so much leadership 
experience," said founder senior Naomi Estela. "I learned how to get things accomplished and a 
lot about the community." The sisters were extremely dedicated to community service. In the 
fall, Sigma Iota Alpha held a baby supply drive outside K-Mart. With all the supplies diey acquired 
they threw a baby shower for Hand-In-Hand which supports pregnant teens. At the baby shower 
they had games, prizes and food. The}' also hosted a Halloween party for the children in the 
Valley View mobile home community. Everyone got dressed up and they passed out candy to the 
children. They had games and face painting as well. 

Sigma Alpha Iota also co-sponsored Celebracion Latina with the Latino Student Alliance 
with all the proceeds going to charity. It was held in the Grand Ballroom and there was a band, 
dancing and lots of Latino food. This helped to raise awareness or the Latino culture as a whole 
and in the Harrisonburg community. 

To many of the members it was the friendships and the ability to learn more about the 
Latino culture that brought these women together. "We felt the need to learn more about the 
Latino culture and we all wanted to make a difference in some way. I believe we are a family now," 
said Estela.B bytoniduncan

Ski Club 


The Ski Club was the university's premier organization for students devoted to the sport 
of skiing for recreation. Although having only completed its second year in existence, the club had 
already attracted much interest by the student body. The Ski Club earned official recognition by 
the Sports Club Council in Spring 2002. The club did not compete in races or hold practices, but 
was strictly recreational in nature. 

As the organization was still in the early phases of branching out, it had not done much 
in the way of community service. However, the club still participated with the University Recreation 
Center in Warm-A- Winter- Wish, gathering clothing and food for a family in need. The Ski Club 
was also planning to host more events similar to Warm-a- Winter- Wish in the coming years. 

Students enjoyed the opportunity to ski for pleasure while meeting new friends with 
similar interests. "I decided to join because I love to ski," said Ski Club Executive Secretary, 
sophomore Whitney Taylor. "I was walking around campus last year and when I walked up to the 
entrance of my dorm, I saw a flyer for Ski Club. It was going to be new because there was only a 
ski racing club and people wanted to create something for recreation only." The Ski Club looked 
forward to sharing the fun and excitement of this winter sport with many new members in the 
future.! by garret hiller

Men's Club Water Polo 

Being a part of the Mens Club Water Polo was more than just 
being on a college athletic team. The members of this cohesive group shared 
a very close bond as they lived, studied and parried together. Club President 
Mark Johnson said, "Men's Club Water Polo is a tightly knit group. We are 
in the pool together eight hours a week and out of the pool together for 
several more hours." The club provided the opportunity for people of various 
experience levels with an interest in water polo to learn the sport, compete in 
tournaments with othet universities, and most importantly, have a lot of 

Club Water Polo was founded in 1994 and was a co-ed team until 
1998. When not playing in the pool, the club members participated in a 
number of sendee projects including working concessions at several college 
football and basketball games. The team was also proud of its involvement 
with the Warm-a- Winter- Wish sendee project during the Christmas season. 
Johnson said, "Another big part of the team is fundraising. We are always 
serving refreshments, or cleaning the Convo or stadium to fund events like 
spring tournaments in Timpa, FL and Chapel Hill, NC. We take part in 
Warm-a- Winter- Wish in the winter, and help out with a local element.irv 
school program in the spring." 

Of the most recently concluded season, Johnson said the "games 
have been disappointing, but successful. We finished with a 6-6 record in the 
Atlantic Conference, only losing one game by more than three goals. During 
the first tournament, we played eventual conference champion Georgetown 
into 3 overtimes. Describing our team's performance with one word... 
competitive, very competitive." ■ by garret hiller

WXJM was the student-operated radio station servicing the 
university and the Harrisonburg community. The station first hit 
the airwaves on October 1 , 1990 and continued to provide students 
with opportunities to practice their broadcasting skills. WXJM 
broadcasted 24 hours a day during the academic year at 390 watts of 
power to an audience of about 90,000 potential listeners. WXJM 
featured a wide variety of programming under an educational 
broadcasting license. Students produced and hosted programs 
covering a wide range of music styles including progressive, world 
and Americana. The station also featured talk/specialty shows covering 
the latest news or popular topics of interest to listeners, offering fans 
the opportunity to call in and share their opinions. 

WXJM also worked during the school year to expose 
students to live music and new, promising music acts. On February 
5, 2003, the station succeeded in bringing together singers James 
Mercer, Sam Beam, Sam Jayne, and Rosie Thomas to perform at 
Court Squate Theatet in downtown Harrisonburg. WXJM also put 
together its annual college radio music conference, MacRoCK 2003, 
on April 4th and 5th. The two-day long affair took place at various 
venues throughout Harrisonburg, bringing together many popular 
bands. ■ by garret hiiler

Club Tennis 

The Tennis Club served as an outlet for students who wanted to play competivelv but not 
commit all their time to a varsity sport. Initiated in 1997, Club Tennis strived to provide a fun, 
competitive atmosphere for tennis lovers. While these students improved their tennis skills, they also 
learned the values of sportsmanship and friendship. "I joined back in freshman year because I wanted 
to keep playing but varsity was too high of a level," said junior Khalil Garriott. "This club was a good 
fit for me — we play competitively and we have fun." 

Boasting about 90 members, the tennis club offered optional practices and meets. 'The 
matches are fun," said club president, junior Evan Schwartz. "1 love to compete. We got to travel and 
play against some really great players." Both the men and women's teams competed against the University 
of Virginia, William and Mary, Virginia Tech, University of North Carolina, North Carolina State, 
Penn State, and Cornell. Eight members, four guys and four girls, also traveled to the national 
championships match held in Texas. 

Members also worked together to improve their community. They participated in die Adopt- 
A- Street program in which they were required to clean their street at least three times a year. They also 
cleaned the Convocation Center and Bridgeforth Stadium to raise money for their club. 
Through their love of tennis, members formed solid friendships. After practices they often ate together 

tat D-hall. The night before matches they held a pot luck dinner, allowing members to get each other 
pumped up for their big day. They also held parties throughout the year. "I have met a lot of people 
through tennis," said Garriott. "We work hard together but we also had fun. I was able to form many 
great friendships." ■ by garret hiller

Ultimate Frisbee 

The purpose of the Men's and Women's Ultimate Frisbee teams was to promote good 
sportsmanship and wellness through active participation in frisbee-related practices and tournaments. 
The teams continually met this goal, showing their passion for the sport and their sense of fun at the same 

The sport of ultimate frisbee required athleticism and coordination, but was not overly difficult 
to learn. For those that really enjoyed playing ultimate, summer league was a great way to stay involved 
while school was not in session. Summer league improved their game since athletes were able to play co- 
ed with experienced players of all ages. Winter league was also available, though summer league proved 
more popular. 

Within the local region, the team mosdy played against William and Mary, University of Maryland, 
University of Virginia, Richmond and Towson, but their range was unlimited. They also had invitations 
extended from Washington D.C., Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Florida teams. 

The men's team formed in 1 997 and was originally co-ed. The Women's Ultimate Frisbee Club 
was officially founded in the spring of 2002 after more women became interested in the sport. The 
women's team, affectionately called the Bitchmonkeys, had their official debut in the fall of 2002. During 
that semester, the team of 12 women played in fall sectionals in Northern Virginia and a few scrimmages 
within die region. In the most current ranking, the club placed 100th in women's collegiate ultimate. The 
32-member men's team, known to each other as the Flying Hellfish, also had a successful season. 

Women's Ultimate Frisbee club President, senior Lilyan Beckwith had high aspirations for her 
team. "I would like to increase the number of tournaments and scrimmages we play in, as well as step up 
our recruiting efforts," she said. "Being a relatively new club, we have a long way to go in establishing 
ourselves as a serious sports team... but I remain optimistic that the club will incrementally become better 

and better and will eventually become a contending ultimate team in our region." ■ by garret hiller

Zeta Tau Alpha 

The mission of Zeta Tau Alpha was to provide support for 
educational and philanthropic programs, and to always be responsive to 
the needs of a changing society. The Gamma Kappa chapter was founded 
in 1949 and was recently honored with the Crown Chapter award by 
ZTA for the third consecutive year. Sorority sisters strove to further 
enhance ZTAs leadership position in the Greek community and its 
influence in the world. 

ZTA was deeply committed to promoting Breast Cancer 
Awareness Week. The week served as a fundraiser for the sorority's 
philanthropy, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. All 135 
sisters of the sorority remained extremelv dedicated and passionate about 
their philanthropy. This year marked the second anniversary of the Breast 
Cancer Awareness Week fundraiser. 

ZTA surpassed their goal of raising Si 0,000 for the Susan G. 
Komen Breast Cancer Foundation through a series of events. These events 
included a benefit concert with the university's student a cappella groups, 
a Survivor Night Speak-Out, a benefit show with New and Improv'd, 
and the main event: a 5k race for Komen. ZTA also handed out nearly 
2000 pink ribbons to promote awareness about breast cancer. 

Through excellence in service, commitment to a cause, and 
the strong bonds of sisterhood, ZTA sisters were successful in bettering 
their community and building character in themselves. ■ by Garret Hitler

A love-hate relationship would best define my experience this past year. I can honestly say that working 

on this publication and serving as editor has been the highlight of my years at James Madison. Then again, the 

22-hour deadlines and 30-hour weeks would have to be the low- point. I did not do any of this alone and was 

fortunate enough to have a great editorial board and wonderful staff at my side. I never thought when I 

first applied to staff as a freshman that I would have the opportunity to do this, but it is something that 

I will never forget and something that has taught me a lot more than I have learned in class. 

I am forever grateful tor the support and encouragement of the following friends, family, 
and co-workers. 

First and foremost, I have to thank the Editorial Board: Jen, Rach, Jess and Jessie. I 
think we pulled this whole Bluestone thing off reallv well, whether we knew what we were 
doing or not. Thank you for all your dedication, this book would be nothing without all of 
you. The deadlines were rough to say the least ("I promise we will be done by 3 a.m. this 
time. ..!"), but I hope you all got as much out of this as I did. This was our baby, and look what it has 
become. I am so lucky to have you all as co-workers and friends. I better see each of you in New York next March to 
claim the Gold Crown that we know is ours. We have had a lot of fun this year, but I can't say that I will miss being in the office 
at all. I love you all and I wish each one of you the best tor next year. 

The Bluestone staff: I hope this book is everything you expected it to be, I know it is certainly more than I expected, and I have each one of you 
to thank for that. I hope you all can say that you were proud to be a part of the Bluestone 2003 because it looks amazing. Thank you so much for all that 
you all have done, and I hope we haven't turned you off to coming back on staff next year! It was wonderful to get the chance to connect with such a diverse 
group of people. Thank you for trusting me with the creation of this book. 

To Jerry Weaver: Thank you tor all of your "advising!" I don't know what I would have done without you when I had no one else to turn to. I hope 
I haven't been too much of a pain this year... don't worry, you haven't been that bad either! P.S.- Bet you thought I wouldn't actually publish the hat 
picture. ..see below-! Haha. 

To Brian Hunter & Glenn Russell of Taylor Publishing: Thank you so much for working with me to produce this wonderful book! Taylor always 
does such an amazing job, and this is no different. Brian, thank you especially for all the support and phone calls along the way. Glenn, thanks for re- 
proofing and then re-re-proofing again and again for me! It has been such a pleasure to work with you both. Thanks tor another fabulous book. 

To Kurt & Marti at Candid Color: Thanks for everything, the pictures look great. Thanks for all the hard work and working with us during the 
fiasco ot orgs pictures!

j^&Ck, 1 final thoughts 

The Bluestone Alumni: Jen-no, Liz, and Allison; How could I have done ANY of this without vou girls. I have missed you all so much this 
year. The office was so different without you all here, especially without having the official deadline F* list. I hope you approve of my book and that 
it is up to par with past Bluestone standards. (And to honorary Bluestone Alumnus, Marshall: Thanks for the visits during deadline and all the phone 
calls... the deadlines were different without John Mackey and Satisfaction Jackson, but you still managed to make me smile!) 

To Grant Clarke and Renee Herrell: Thank you both so much tor everything you have done for me at JMU. I might still be here next year 
next year if it wasn't for your endless support. I am fortunate to have gotten the chance to know you both. 

To my professors: I am sorry for skipping classes and for handing in late work. Please know that it was not because I thought your lectures 
were boring! Putting together a book like this and taking 18 hours is not as much fun as I thought it would be! 

To my parents: I am convinced that I am the luckiest daughter in the world. I have two wonderful parents that encourage me in whatever 
I do; it doesn't get much better than that. I hope you both know how grateful I am to have you. Thank you for always supporting but never pushing me. 
I told you I would make it out in four years, didn't I? Matty: I didn't forget about you. ..thanks for theme inspiration, bro. Love you! 

To Glen: I don't know how many times I told you I wanted to quit, but you never let me give up. You have been there for me throughout 
this whole expei ience. 1 hank you for simply listening to me and gi\ ing me encouragement \\ hen 1 was ha\ ing a had day. 1 love / ^mi •- 
you. « _** «//f|] 

To Jess (aka Moosh): You are the one person that has always been on my side since day one ot freshman year, 
seems like we have known each other much longer than only four short years. I can't believe how much we have growi 
since the days of Chesapeake, look at us now. The memories we have made together are something that I will always 

My roommates: Jess, Jane and Alison; I love you all so much, and I don't think 1 will ever have quite the 
same living experience with anyone else again. Thanks tot being such good roommates and triends. I will miss living 
with you all next year. . .1 think?! Haha. 

To Gina: I am fortunate to have you as Editor for next year. I know you will do a terrific job, as you 
have these past two years on staff. Carry on the tradition! 

And finally, to the students of James Madison Univetsity: This book is for you. 1 hope this is an 
accurate reflection of your JMU experience. It has been a privilege to say that I attended JMU, and even more of 
a privilege to create a document of this year for you all. I wish all of my fellow Dukes the best for the future. 

It is so hard to sav goodbye to something that I have dedicated a year ofmi' life to. This was definitely a learn 
that I will always treasure. I absolutely loved creating this book, and I hope thabsMCTyone elsjaiinQs,it as amazing as I do.

£ final thoughts 

Even though I can't wait to see what the future holds for me, I am finding it hard to say goodbye to the 
people and the memories I have made here at JMU. Coming here four years ago I could have never 
imagined how great it would be, and how fast it would fly by. I have found true friendships, made memories 
to last a lifetime, and discovered so much about myself. 

I can honesdy say that working on the Bluestone has had its ups and downs. However, thanks 
to great stafFand editorial board, the positives far outweigh all the stress and difficulties we encountered. 
I would like to thank everybody on staff this year who worked so hard to produce such an awesome 
book. Of course I would also like to give huge thanks to the ed board girls, for not only doing such a 
good job, but for being such good friends. There has been so many memories and fun times, even 
through the torture of deadlines got crown?! All the laughter and craziness made the YB mara- 
thons fun (or at least bearable!). The Orlando conference was so much fun, getting crazy in 

"Paradise Island," and Disney World. The trip to New York was also awesome hope to see 

you girls there next year! I love all you girls, and wish you only the best of luck in the future! 

Sally: We had so much fun in New Orleans this summer "Am I going to 

die?" and of course Orlando, "I don't really remember Orlando, but I remember the BET 

club!" Without your leadership we would have never made any deadlines, you really held 

us together. ("What is this fuzziness? Please remove!") Jessie: The only girl I know who 

vould earn' a backpack of Rolling Rock through the airport! Thanks for the talks, and all the laughs. 

Jess: I know you probably never want to read a yearbook story again, but you did a great job! Enjoy next year, and I know 

you'll do an amazing job at the Breeze. And of course my Rachie, the YB "horror!" You have become one of my dearest and most 

treasured friends. Thanks for always being there for me, for always supporting me, and for always being on my side. We were destined to be friends 

forever, I will be there for you anytime you need me, even if you just wanna talk about your butt:) 

So many of my best JMU memories come from girls I have lived with. Kate, Kelly, Casey, and Kristy. . ..thanks for the good times always. I will never forget 
our spring break trip to Miami and all the good times in Ikenberry. Of course I could never forget my Princess-in-Crime Jess! Jess, you have an amazing ability to turn 
my frown upside down, you always help me to see the best in every situation. You have gotten me through the past year, and I could never thank you enough. I know 
you will find great success and happiness in the years ahead. Always remember, we are fabulous because "our thighs touch. ...all the way!" 

I could never forget my Herndon crew, who has been a big part of my college experience, even if they don't realize it. Love to all, especially' ray PPG Linds 

and Jenny, you girls are the best! Cabin boys Mattie and Marv, thanks for the laughs, even if the)' are usually at MY expense! My shopping girls and Queen Sarah, 

truly my clones. And last but not least, thanks to my parents, for always supporting me, no matter how stubborn I got and no matter how many times I failed physics I 

love you. 

I may not remember every little thing I learned in my classes, and I may not even remember all the fun times I've had here at JMU but I will NEVER 

forget the amazing friends I have met, and the way they've helped me grow. I have met some of the most sincere and thoughtful friends in my four years here.. . .I've had 
the time of my life. ■

"Adventure is worthwhile in itself... Amelia Earhart. And that is definitely what college has been for me! I will aJways 
remember all the fun times along with all the hard times, long nights of studying, crazy stories, beautiful sunsets and 
countless memories shared with some of the most amazing people I've ever met... 

Becoming a part of the yearbook staff was a huge opportunity for me and I am so glad that I had the chance to 
work with such a dedicated group of people for the past three years! Our staff has always seemed to pull togerher and get 
things done- thanks to all my photogs this year for helping to capture the true essence of JMU! Good luck to the staff 
next year, you'll do great! 

Along with all the hard work I still had many fun times with my Yearbook hoochies- Sally, Carter, Jessie, and 
Jess: a.k.a. "The Ed Board". We managed to pull through despite all the long, hard 22 hour plus deadline marathons! 
Thanks for my very first flying experience- air virgin no longer! Orlando and New York - "Got gold Crown?" were both 

Sally- you've done an excellent job managing this year's staff and keeping us on task! Can't wait for New York- 
ir will be an amazing experience! ps... thong th-th-thong thong! Jessie- thanks tor making our Tuesday night office 
hours so much fun and giving me shout outs on the "scurrry" boys' radio show! Remember: "Some birds aren't meant to 
be caged, their leathers are just too bright..." Jess- your grammar expertise was excellent and greatly appreciated! Good 
luck next year and cherish every moment! p.s. I'm sorry I forgot to write my "Foxfields" story in past tense! Carter- my 
Miss Jennie on the block... how do I thank you for so much... thanks tor listening when I needed to talk or have my 
frown turned upside down! Yearbook would not have been the same without you- Chick-fil-a and pretzel sandwiches, 
dancing to Justin's songs, threatening Sally that we'd quit, and remember. . .WE are the sports team! 

My roomies- Jen, Tay, Hads, Elise and our adopted "couch ragamuffin" Erin- you girls have made my college 
experience more than interesting and I don't think I could have taken more pictures if I had tried! I'll never forget 
freshman year- snowy nighrs in tank tops, "footloose" and risking the train to make it to D-hall! Sophomore year- always 
being the loudest table at Festival and waiting tor someone to amuse us by falling down the stairs! No longer stuck in our 
freshman phase we finally realized we didn't need to wear black pants to go out! Junior year- living in the Ghetto 
apartment and the beginning ot the "Friends/Seinfeld" dinner tradition! Senior year- the loud bass and vibrating floors 
thanks to our part)- animal neighbots, getting hooked on all the "reality" TV shows, and digging ourselves out of the snow 
storm! Jen- my long lost Aquarian sista! So many fun times! Thanks for always being there to listen and support 
me the entire time! Tay- everytime I watch an episode ot "Seinfeld" I will forever think ot you... Thanks for all the 
fun and crazy times Weezer! "Tippieee Toe!" Hads- our D-hall "frospies" 
and road trips ro Charlottesville tor shows- so interesting and much tun! 
Special shoutout to my Lisa Lisa and the boyz- Alexis will miss you! 

Matthew- since our first encounter dancing and the 1 a.m. car 
wash you have filled my life with much happiness... our long ralks... 
Panama City '02... New York carriage ride... Serendipity... countless 
road trips... pancakes, Ramen, and blizzards... comedies and a little 
romance... 23 & 2" are magical numbers... thank you tor 
capturing my heart... 

Thanks to all my friends and family, especially my 
grandparents and my Nana who wrote me weekly so I would have 
something to look forward to in my mailbox! My girlsssss trom 
home: Ellen, Kelly. andT... I am so happy that we have stayed 
in touch even after highschool... our specatular summers and 
friendship have been the BEST! My wonderful parents- your 
encouraging support and love has meant more than you 

could ever imagine... I love you with all mv heart and 
thank you for this wonderful adventure! 

There are experiences you go through and 
momenrs you live tor and through it all you have all 
been there... it has all gone by in the blink of an eye, 
but it will remain in mv heart forever.. .xoxo ■ 




Nothing you love is lost; not really. Things, people-they always go away, sooner or later. You can't hold them anymore 
than you can hold moonlight. But if they've touched you, if they're within you, then they're still yours. The only things 
vou ever really have are the ones vou hold inside vour heart...

Dad and me in Atlanta. 

I think I must have been on something when I volunteeted for this job. 

Oka)-, not really. I knew it would be a lot of work when I signed up, and it has been. But it's been a lot 

of tun too, and I'm grateful for all I've learned this year and the people I've been privileged to meet. 

Thank you to the rest of the Ed Board: Sally, Rachel, Jen and Jessie. For helping me learn the 

ropes, being patient with me, and all the fun times. You've passed on a lot of knowledge and advice 

probably without even knowing it, about professors, friendships, guys, and life in general. It's 

been great getting to know each or you this year. I wish vou the best as vou graduate and go vour 

separate ways. Please keep in touch! 

To the deadline crew: Gina, Jeanette, Kari, Clare, and others. Thank vou so much for all 
your hard work and moral support. You went above and beyond your duties to make this 
book something special (and keep us from insanity on those long nights!). I'll always re- 
member sitting around the purple table together at 6 a.m., staring blankly at each other 
and wondering it the printer would ever spit out that last spread. It's been wonderful to 
work with such dedicated people. 

Thanks also to the lovely ladies of the Classes section, who always brightened 

up my Wednesday nights. Whether brainstorming stories, writing cornv (but good!) 

headlines, ioining the WXJM crew on the air, or taking a million shots of your 

bridesmaid pictures, it was always a good time. Katie, thanks for helping me get 

through Web Design in one piece. Good luck in Chicago — you'll be awesome! 

Gina (my Hanson. SMAD and yearbook buddy since freshman year), thank you for 

being a great friend and tor all the care and effort you put into everything you do — I know vou'U be 

a wonderful Editor-in-Chief! 

To the rest of the staff: thank you for your hard work and all the time that I know has gone into making this a qualitv 

production. Especially to the writers: you are all wonderful, and I greatly appreciate the many hours you spent contacting sources 

(over and over) and writing stories. Thank vou for sharing vour talent with the Bluestone, getting things in on time, and making my 

job a little easier. 

A huge thank you to my roommates, the girls of 1315 E. Calley, Sara and Erin, you guys have been so supportive and 
have made this year so much fun. Thanks for always being there to talk and for putting up with my grumpiness during deadlines. 
I loved movie nights, watching Mopar be dumb, the infamous Quote Book, our late night talks and random workout sessions. 
You'll always have a special place in my heart. I also want to thank Shannon and the small group girls for an awesome year — I've 
loved our Bible studies, line dancing, retreats (the shack), the sleepover, and the Wal-Mart scavenger hunt. Thank you all for being 
part of my life this year. 

To Mom, Dad and Andrew: I am so blessed to have you. Thank you tor vour constant love, encouragement and prayers. 
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be here and find out what life is all about; for pointing me in the right direction but 
also giving me room to make my own choices. And most of all to the Lord; you are the reason I'm here. May the words of my mouth 
and the meditation of my heart be pleasing to you (Psalm 19: 14). 

To next year's staff: be prepared for some long nights, but also a lot of good memories. Have fun and don't take things too 
seriously. Thank you in advance for continuing the Bluestone tradition of excellence. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it in the end. 
I hope that you 11 enjoy it as much as I have. ■

"What a long, strange trip it has been." Who would have ever thought that Jessica Cino would end up 
on the Ed board of anything, but I am certainly grateful to have been given such an awesome opportunity, 
although I honestly didn't know what I was getting myself into. Monthly deadlines had become mv arch 
nemesis, but honestly if being trapped in the yearbook office with good music, great friends, and a bottle of 
O.E for twenty-two hours straight is work... then dad, I take it back, I may reconsider this whole job 
thing. Besides all the free office equipment and supplies I stole, the best perk of having this job was 
getting to go to Orlando. There is nothing better then being dropped off at the nicest hotel in the whole ^^ 

city and then being relocated to the most crapptastic one. But of course, we made the best of it. . .chilling 
in the Sam Adams airport lounge, sleeping through conferences, hot tub after hours, Halloween at 
pleasure island, and of course the BET club. Troy if you are out there, thanks for helping a white girl 

But seriouslv folks, looking back on it, I wouldn't have changed a thing. 
O captain, my captain. . . [Sallv] I owe a special thanks to vou tor taking a chance on me, even 
though vou are a "horror" and vou slept way to close to me in Florida. You are very talented, 
and I am positive that you will be successful in all you do. 

[Jen] you are one of the most sarcastic princesses I have ever met. Even at the most 
stressful times, your comments kept me laughing. Thank you for some great conversations, 
and good luck in grad school!! 

[Jess] you are an editting machine! It was so nice getting to know vou. It was fun brainstorming with 
you on design ideas. Good luck with yearbook next year!! 

[Rachiepoo] it has been fun plaving office hours with you on the same night, doing type projects late into 
the PM, and being scurred bv the sports guvs!! You have been a great friend to me, thanks for listening and under- 
standing. Good luck with all you do!! P.S. Your BET dancing skills... AMAZING!! 

From Jerz, to UDEL, to the dirty south, my friends and family have been there for me even - step of the way. 
Life I love vou, all is grooooow!!! PIECE OUT

In her second year as head coach, senior Jen Carter had lots of new 
talent to help her put together the sports section. Returning to the squad was 
senior photography editor Rachel O Donnell who used her expertise to lead 
two new photographers along with senior John Altice who was previously 
of the organization section. The two new photographers, junior Sal Leone 
and senior Micah Crane were enthusiastic at the beginning of the season, although 
the heavy practice schedule soon wore them out. Transferring to the team mid-season, was 
freshman writer Alan Kravetz, who helped pull the team out of an early season slump. How- 
ever, the team managed to pull off a victor}' at the end of the yearbook season thanks to senior 
designer Peyton Green. Many long hard hours were spent in Anthony Seeger 217 strategizing 
and perfecting the game plan. At the end of the season Green and O'Donnell were given most 
valuable player awards, while coach Carter won coach of the year, as voted on by her peers.

Always bridesmaids, never brides (with the exception of Kristin of course), the 
classes section, after looking through thousands of class portraits, still managed to get 
through each deadline, although unable to find one single Prince Charmin' (even though 
Maureen called a few!) 

However, when Kristin walked into the office with her shiny new ring, we 
were suddenly blinded by the bling-bling, and from then on our yearbook lives changed 

As the planning began, living vicariously through Kristin, we started our 
search for something old. Luckily, we found the old in returning staffers, Gina and 
Katie, the old fogies who just couldn't get enough of each other (Columbian coffee, 
say what?!) Next we looked for something new and found the new funkay 'n' fresh 
designs by Clare and All's rockin' photo skillzzzz. Finding something borrowed was 
easy. We borrowed, or rather stole airtime on WXJM. No one, and we mean no one 
knows Christina Aguillera quite like we do. Lastly, we needed something blue. We 
didn't have to look very far (note the name on the cover!) 

After all was collected, we set the wedding date for Wednesday night 
before American Idol and The Bachlorette. When asked, "Do you promise to 
never wear your hair in a ponytail, dress in John Deere overalls, hold a Popple, or 
show too much cleavage in your class portrait?" we all simultaneously said, "I 
DO!" ■

The first time we got off "Exit 245," not one of the six of us realized the "B.O.N.D" 
we'd soon form. Working on the organizations team was anything but a "Breeze." But 
even though we were pushed to the "Boarderline" of our patience and some clubs 
seemed like they wanted us to shut our "Phi Sigma Pi" holes, we managed to survive. 
And why? Because we "C.A.R.E." We walked in the snow, up "Hillel" both ways just 
to get to the office for deadline. We sent out massive amounts of E-mails, made what 
seemed like a million phone calls and still found ourselves sans photos. We were 
different, some of us "Low Key" and some bound for "Note-riety." Kari was always 
the "Optimist." Toni was "AKA" "Hi, my name is Toni, I'm from the Bluestone." 
Heidi our designer made this her "Madison Project." Liz is the one who actually 
took pictures and Jess H. was in a box. And of course there was Garret . . . and we 
were all "Into Hymn." 
OK, bye. 
P.S. All of the organizations that never wrote us back — you can all go to "Hellenic' 

A rare photo of the sports boys actually in the office.
