The regional campus ' first home was the basement of Spartanburg General, but the rap- id growth of the student population necessitated a move. However, the students continued to enroll in the university, which provided the support to warrant the construction of the Administration building on what was to be the final home for USC-Spartanburg. Such growth has continued through 1989, thus enabling the Spartan- burg campus to expand into the modern facility it is today For twenty-one years, USCS has served the commu- nity by educating its young people. Without this institu- tion, many young adults would have had to leave the Spartanburg area for an affordable education, or possi- bly would have not attended college. In becoming an adult, one accepts responsibility, fo- cuses on a purpose in life, and gains the respect of others. For most people, the twenty-first birthday signi- fies entry to adulthood. For USCS, its twenty-first year signifies acceptance as a respected university. Every aspect of campus life has evolved into the complex academic society that students are proud to belong to, as our institution Comes of Age. 3i III A Hi The o/d Spartanburg County Health Department served as the second home for the rapidly growing two year institution, ■ uses. In 1989, USCS is still growing, changing, and expanding to fit the needs of its students Kokomo? No. Key Largo! Baby why don t we go on a biology field trip with Dr. Newberry. Fall of 1988 was the beginning of a new student activity program entitled R.I.O. T. Day. At this particular function. The Mix" entertained the student body. Opening Maturing ♦ through the years Can you imagine what the administration in 1967 would say if they heard that the stu- dents were going to have a R.I.O.T. on Wednesday afternoon? In just over two dec- ades, USCS has drastically changed the meaning of student life. Campus activities have grown from sock hops and war protests to "Music on Mondays" and political cam- paign rallies. In retrospect, the sixties seem somewhat simplier than the complicated world of the late 1980s. Their common fears were alcohol abuse and if college buddies were coming home from Vietnam, while the students of the ♦ ♦ eighties must fear AIDS, crack, and global thermonuclear war. The growing period of the 1960s provided a necessary foundation for the institution of higher learning we have today. A major ac- complishment was the building of the regional campus that we are remodeling today. It may have shocked the administrators in 1967 to hear of students planning a Really Intense Outrageous Time, but it would prob- ably disturb the administration of Dr. Sans- bury in 1989 to find that no one was going to a Wednesday R.I.O.T! This snapshot of a dance in the late 60s might reveal a familiar face or two. Did they give away free pizza in those days? These students seem really happy about something. Opening The Rifle Range sometimes serves as a refuge for studyohol- ics such as Eric Hunter, Brian Bishop, and Connie McCallister. Growing ♦ ♦ . bigger tfmn ever The hassles of class registration are one aspect of college life that never changes. The inconvenience caused by the remodeling is hampering expedient class registration and advisement just as the original con- struction of the campus did in 1967. oAs a two year college, student population was rather small. However, at an enrollment of 3200, the current four year institution s population is still expanding. Con- sidering USCS is a small school, having 3200 students in attendance can sometimes lead to a few problems. With the parking lot in front of Hodge filled with portable classrooms, finding a place to park can be quite difficult at times. Not only is parking a problem, but overall class offerings are slightly inadequate to accommodate a large number of students, particularly during day classes. The general education classes at the 100-200 level are offered at 15 different times on five different days. However, once a student has completed the basic courses, it becomes nearly impossible to schedule classes at a reasonable time. The 300-500 level courses are usually only offered at one time during the day, which just happens to be at the same time as all the other 300 through 500 level courses you need to take in any given semester. But that's college life, right?! Even though students have problems parking their cars and getting into the courses they need, for some reason they keep coming back, semester after semes- ter. That reason is the academic quality of this institu- tion, and the dedication of its professors. With such a university open to them, why would students not want to come back? Opening Why did the parking get invaded by trailers? Administration Building renovations are annoying, but necessary for a growing campus. Business procedures have changed drastically since 1967, but the hair styles and clothing have reappeared today. Opening Don Brock, a former pitcher for USCS, signed with the San Francisco Giants. Way to go Don! Opening Competing for higher goais Bantams? Who's that? The home of the 1967 Bantams was USC-Spartanburg. The Bantams were an integral part of campus life, and were known for their prowess at basket- ball. As USCS began to grow in its impor- tance to the community, so did its desire to truly be a part of the surrounding area. Thus, in 1975, USC-Spartanburg became the Spar- tan Rifles. The term "rifles" was chosen to represent the historic significance of the area in the past battles, such as the Battle of Cow- pens. For a small university, USCS has a relative- ly large athletics department. In 1967, this ♦ ♦ ♦ department was comprised of basketball, tennis, and golf teams. However, the teams of 1989 include basketball, soccer, volleyball, softball, tennis, and a few others. These teams have won several conference and divi- sion championships, which proves that its not just the larger universities that have a winning sports department. For the past twenty-one years, every facet of USCS has developed proportionally to one another. Just as the quality of academic in- struction has improved, so has the quality of the athletic department through its equip- ment, coaches, and athletics. Opening Free pizza and Ft. 1.0. T. Day are made possible by the organi- zation called CAB. Campus Activities Board. We've come a long way baby! Today's Student Nurses As- sociation have traded in their bedpans for modern technology to better serve our community. Opening over time The diverse interests of the students have resulted in the numerous organizations present on the USCS cam- pus. Each club and organization represents a different student interest, and thus allows a creative outlet for energies, and also enriches the college experience. The 45 organizations boast of many members. Since this is a commuter university, such widespread student in- volvement signifies a commitment by the student popu- lation to support USCS in every aspect possible. Through the ages, campus organizations have devel- oped their purposes from the simple ideas of the past into the complex ideals of today. The Student Nurses Association once focused on effective ways to collect bedpans. However, the current S.N.A. has left that chore to the orderlies, and concentrates on intensive patient care. Similarly, the Bridge Club was enough to satisfy the needs of students who were interested in a serious card game. As students have matured in their interests over the years, so has the calibre of the organi- zations, such as the Chess and Indoor Games Club. The various organizations are the outcome of stu- dents and their expressed interests. Without those ex- pressed interests, it would have been impossible for campus activities to get organized! Freshman Orientation was a busy time at USCS. but the Afro- American Association seems to be handling the rush rather well. Opening The happiest day of the college experience . . . graduation day. above and beyond In a college setting, there are those who aspire to mediocrity, and there are those who aspire to excellence. With a student popula- tion of 3200, USCS has been blessed with a multitude of achievers. Every facet of the uni- versity offers an opportunity to excel. A college degree is more than just a piece of paper that states a name and the degree received. It is something that should be cher- ished for a lifetime. It is a major accomplish- ment that symbolizes the hard work and dedi- cation that one put forth in pursuit of an admi- rable goal. A startling fact is that less than forty per- cent of all college freshman, whether at a two or four year institution, ever obtain a degree. Simply completing the requirements for a de- gree is an accomplishment in itself. When approaching graduation from col- lege, one would like to be praised for one's achievements. For most, that final recogni- tion is the graduation ceremony. However, in every group, there are those who become the outstanding achievers. These outstanding students deserve some additional recogni- tion. To possess a college degree, one must be dedicated and talented. But to possess a college degree and achieve other honors, one must be especially talented. Fortunately for USCS, the matriculation of students includes a great number of these especially talented individuals. Opening Opening The bookstore offers cold drinks for fifty cents. No refund or exchanges without a drop slip and receipt. In the late sixties Dr. Davidson (center) takes time out to talk with students. Opening tenrn ; USCS gets Wet and Wild early in the fall of 1988 coming of age Twenty-one years ago, the upstate community felt a need for an institution of higher education. This need was realized with the opening of the University of South Carolina at Spartanburg. Its humble beginnings have shown that a small two year college can grow and pros- per into a modern, respectable university. Offering associate degrees in nursing and business procedures, the USCS of old could accommodate only a limited number of students in only two programs of study. In 1989, a student may choose from 19 different major fields of study. The campus has also physically expanded. Both schools of education in 1967 were housed by the Ad- ministration building. Today, there are six buildings on campus, along with the Burroughs Child Development Center and several portable classrooms. With this ex- pansion have come a few problems. Of particular impor- tance is the problem of student parking. For the largest student enrollment ever, finding a place to park can be quite time consuming. However the Board of Directors in Columbia has allowed the purchase of over a hundred acres of land adjacent to the campus. This land is to be used for adding parking spaces, and a new classroom/ student union building. This purchase stands as addi- tional support for the claim that USCS is continuing to grow, and is becoming more respected as this institution Comes of Age. Opening Student Life RELAX! One aspect of college life students are most fond of is student activities. College wouldn't be complete without parties, clubs and organizations, and RIOTs to at- tend. The years one spends in college shape one's outlook on life by acquisition of knowledge. For four years, students must attend lectures and labs, write re- search papers, and make oral presenta- tions. This series of events would become unbearably monotonous without outside activities to occupy the mind. A great many students who enter college never finish. Perhaps it is because these stu- dents didn't become involved in the activi- ties of the school that they decided to with- draw. USCS offers many activities, and those students who DO become involved in these activities usually receive their bachelor's degree. These students chat casually after class. Barbara Rhodes looks for an interesting picture. "I just know it's in here somewhere! RIOTs provide an ex- cellent opportunity to re- lax. Rusty Gilbert shows his prowess at soccer. ":. . . . fc ft * * , '- h£B& ■ v Student Life a is about to ■f the Interna- l's Christmas An Education In The Sun When most people think of taking a summer course, that thought conjures vi- sions of windowless classrooms, listening to a tired professor, and wishing that someone would turn off the air conditioner before you fall asleep. Fortunately, a ma- rine biology course offered last summer wasn't like that. During the week of July 10th, 15 students went with Dr. Gill New- berry to the Marine Resources Develop- ment Foundation in Key Largo, Florida. This trip was offered to students for a pos- sible three hour credit in marine biology, provided they submit a scientific paper on a topic that was studied during the trip. Of the 15 students who went on the trip, 9 students turned in research papers. Dur- ing their stay, both students and professor became so fascinated with the material, it became difficult to tell who was taking the course for credit and who was not. The hands-on experiences in the learn- ing sessions proved to be an effective teaching tool. To study underwater ecol- ogy, it was necessary to snorkel. Accord- ing to Dr. Newberry, "When we went down (to the Resource Foundation), no one could snorkel. By the end of the week, we were all snorkeling in seven foot waves." While traveling, the group experienced only one major problem. There were sev- eral tacks in the road, and when their car ran over those tacks, naturally a flat tire followed. Gill Newberry said that people place tacks on the road, and wait for mo- torists to have a flat tire. Those motorists who are unable to fix their flat become the victims of the "tack criminals". Luckily, the USCS group was prepared, and didn t fall prey to any crime. Posing in front of the Marine Re- sources Foundation, this group looks pleased. Kyle Rollins, Taylor Haymes. and Mi- chelle Morrow investigate one of their findings. Student Life r Gill Newberry, engrossed in her activ- ity, excitedly points to an important find- ing.

Student Life Students enjoy listening to Chris Brady as they relax on the lawn. 22 Student life Chris Brady sings his favorite Jimmy Buffet tune to the crowd's de- light. Nothing to do on Wednesday after- noon? Never fear. R. 1.0. T.s are here! Be- tween 1:00 and 2:00 pm on Wednesdays, the Campus Activity Board sponsors an activity for all students. Various entertain- ment is employed, from rock music to an- tique photos. One of the things students like most about Ft. 1.0. T.s is the free Domino's pizza and iced tea. Students flock to the pizza tables, and have usually consumed all of the pizza in less than twenty minutes. For- tunately, the free tea lasts a little longer. At the beginning of the semester, fall events were held outside, but as the weather turned colder, activities were moved inside the Hodge lobby. The move limited the number of people who attended, but kept warm those who could. The most popular two R.I.O. T.s this year were with Chris Brady and Ronny Romm. Chris Brady entertained a crowd of stu- dents by playing his acoustic guitar and singing Jimmy Buffet songs. His renditions of a couple of Jimmy Buffet songs spurned a sing along. Ronny Romm s psychic abilities amazed an even larger crowd. His performance was active, with crowd participation. He selected two students as assistants, and instructed them to go into the audience and collect things for his identification while blindfolded. After accurately identify- ing the objects, he requested that each au- dience member write a question on a slip of paper. These were collected in a bowl, and he "guessed" the questions while blindfolded, and answered them to the de- light of the audience. tm Want It? We Have It! Where do you go for that book your pro- fessor is requiring you to read? The book- store, of course. Virtually anything you could need for a class can be found at the bookstore. From textbooks and note- books to pens and decals, if you have to have it, the place to go is the bookstore. At the beginning of every semester, you must purchase textbooks for each course on your schedule. The bookstore's friendly staff is always ready to help you find the books you need. If you want to show your school spirit, you may choose a shirt with a school logo on it. The bookstore has a large selection of styles and sizes to serve any purpose. So, the next time you find yourself in need of a book or a sweatshirt, go to the bookstore! f m These student nurses enjoy looking together for what they need. Backpacks like these are the most popular and effective way to carry books and papers. Student Life 77i/s student seems unhappy to find that there are three books for History 1 12. Out of all these books, mine will be the most expensive. Student Life 25 It's Time For .. . REGISTRATION "What classes are you going to take next semester?" This question is a com- mon one at registration time. Students rush around trying to get an appointment with their advisor to determine exactly which classes they will take to fulfill the requirements for the degree they are seek- ing. After this has been accomplished, the next step for students is toget their sched- ules put in the computer at their registra- tion center, which is determined by what school one's major is in. The first day schedules are put in the computer usually has the longest lines of people, because the sooner a student has his schedule put in the computer the better his chances are for getting into the classes he needs for that semester. If someone DOESN'T get into a needed class, the only alternative besides taking a substitute course is for the student to wait until the Drop/Add peri- od at the beginning of the next semester and try to find a section of the course with a space open because someone dropped that course. Generally, the hassles of registration SEEM worse than they really are. Stu- dents at USCS are fortunate in their regis- tration process compared to students at a larger university, such as Clemson or Carolina. Registration lines like those at USCS would be a welcome sight at the larger schools. Thus, students must view registration as a necessary process that works relatively well at this institution. Angela Butler enters a student schedule into the computer. The most dreaded part of registra- tion is fee payment! The line in the auxil- iary gym always seem to move relative- ly fast until you get in the back of that line.

To further pareni : My£iy^i&hi,i : ihe Center sponsors an educational spring field trip for parents and children to either the zoo in Columbia or the Nature/Science Muse urn in Charlotte Over the past twelve years, Burroughs has served USCS by providing a place to leave children without having to be con- cerned with the quality of the care that they are receiving. In this decade of ques- tionable child safety, the Center has im- plemented a method for protecting each child from being taken by a stranger. The parents of each child must submit a writ- ten list of approved people who are au- thorized to pick up their child. Another precaution taken to insure child safety is sign in and sign out sheets. When a child arrives at the center, he or she must be signed in. Likewise, whenever a child de- parts from the Center, that child must be signed out. Even with all these precau- tions, the children still enjoy a friendly en- vironment. The 42 children enrolled are separated into two classes, each with 21 students. Each class has a fully qualified teacher and a teacher's aide. Both groups cover classic programs of study, such as math, science, health, manipulative motor skills, and eye hand coordination. Not only are the children involved in a class- room setting, but they also participate in loosely structured groups that are divid- ed into age categories. These group ac- tivities center around such themes as dis- cipline, appropriate peer behavior, ex- pression of emotion, and hygiene. With a large number of children togeth- er all day, there are bound to be some problems with misbehaving. The well- trained staff stresses the positive, and does not employ corporal punishment.

Officer Jim Bowie writes a ci- tation to an unsuspecting stu- dent. /I ' 7 30 Student Life Where Can I Park? Finding a place to park on campus is quite an adventure, especially at the be- ginning of a semester. The parking lots begin to fill each morning around 7:30am, and are usually completely full by 9:00am. If you don't have a class until 10:00am, it is virtually impossible to find a place to park ANYWHERE on campus, and there is no hope of parking close to the building where your class is being held. To further complicate things, porta- ble classrooms were placed in the park- ing lot in front of the Hodge Center to accommodate those departments that were moved from the Administration Building during the asbestos removal. Students who wish to park on campus are required to purchase and display a current USCS parking decal on the right back bumper of their cars. These decals can be purchased in the fall for $15.00, and in the spring for $10.00 each. Those sold in the fall are valid for one year. The public safety department conducts a dai- ly tour of each parking area, and gives citations to those who have parked im- properly or haven't purchased a parking sticker. Fines for breaking the university parking rules range from $1.00 to as much as $25.00 for parking in a "Handi- cap'' space. This sign restricts yet another place to park on campus near the Nursing Building. This warning was placed in front of the portable classrooms while the offices moved back to the administration building. Student Life Mr. Woods answers estions about Apart- d after the convoca- 32 Student Life Enriching the Masses The purpose of obtaining a college edu- cation is to gain knowledge and to learn how to think logically. While this may be a noble purpose, the sole acquisition of knowledge does not the well rounded per- son make. In an attempt to enrich the col- lege experience, the administration spon- sors a series of convocations each aca- demic year to expose students to topics they may not encounter in their everyday pursuits. During the times that the assem- blies are held, all classes are cancelled, and most areas open to students are closed. This allows for better attendance than would leaving student congregation areas open, and letting individual profes- sors decide if they want to cancel their class on that particular occasion. Convocation themes in 1988 — 1989 consisted of religious liberty, Apartheid, teaching, politics, job hunting, and others. Of special importance to USCS students and faculty was the Founder's Day convo- cation. On this day, several individuals were honored who have made significant contributions to USCS. The past efforts of earlier leaders were also recalled. After- wards, the community was invited to an open house to view the newly remodeled Administration building. Anthony Harngan speaks of economic pre-emi- nence and the process of selling American over Japanese ideas. Donald Woods passionately tells of his exper- iences with Apartheid in South Africa. Daniel Dreisbach, a 1981 USCS graduate and Rhodes Scholar, addresses the question of reli- gious freedoms. Student Life Leading The Nation And the next president of the United States is . . . George Bush!! This an- nouncement came on November 8, 1988 as George Bush defeated the Governor of Massachusetts, Michael Dukakis. This year's presidential race was one of the most memorable in years. The Republican and Democratic parties both began the race with several candidates each. As the race progressed, candidates began drop- ping out the race for some of the most scandalous reasons in this century. Demo- cratic presidential hopeful Gary Hart left the race after his affair with Donna Rice was exposed by the press. Another demo- cratic candidate, Senator Joe Biden, was forced to withdraw his candidacy upon the discovery that he had plagurized several of his speeches, and had cheated while in law school. Student Life One of the most awaited moments in the campaign was the announcement of each party's official candidate at the Democratic and Republican conventions. The Demo- cratic party chose Michael Dukakis and his running mate, Lloyd Bentson. The over- whelming Republican choice was Vice President George Bush, and his running mate Dan Guayle. The Republican candi- date choice may have seemed clear, but the Democrats had a more difficult time choosing. This past race was the first ones in history where a black man was one of the final three democra tic presidential can- didates. That black man was the Reverend Jessie Jackson. His strong support from the South, and from special interest groups across the nation enabled him to promote interracial unity on a larger scale than ever before. Mr. Bush asserts his position on the important campaign issues. Governor Carroll Campbell introduces George Bush at a rally held at USCS.

Each year on the anniversary of the school's founding, USCS honors friends and supporters of the USCS campus. Many times, the cere- monies are an impressive and meaningful experience that encourages growth and development. In 1966 the Spartanburg County legisla- tive delegation proposed to the General Assembly the establishment of a local commission for higher education that would bring a regional campus of the Uni- versity of South Carolina to Spartanburg. This proposal grew out of the findings of a committee of distinguished citizens that had first met to seek a solution to the shortage of health-care personnel in the Piedmont, brought about when Spartan- burg General Hospital closed its diploma school of nursing. Today, over 3000 stu- dents study under more than 120 full time faculty members toward baccalaureate degrees in 19 fields of study. Another 800 students pursue graduate courses through programs offered by the USC campus. During the 1989 Founder's Day ceremonies, Honorable Robert J. Sheneen addressed the student body as Paula Ba- ker, John Poole, Phillip Case, and Annie Gordon received honors for their out- standing community service and involve- ment. W Founders Day at USCS is cov- ered in community news by WYFF. Annie Gordon chats with Sharon Hahs after the ceremony. Student Life Paula Baker accepts her ser- vice award from Dr. G B Hodge. Student Life 39 4 High Performance The Shoestring Players is the official production unit of the USCS theater de- partment. This group produces two plays each semester, which are open to the community as well as the students and faculty. Admission is reasonable, and the quality of the performances is high. For a small university, to have so many actors of great calibre is extremely fortuitous. The majority of the company is made up of undergraduate students. However, there are a few seasoned graduate per- formers who still grace Tukey theater. Student Life To create an interest in the theater and arts department, the drama division has formed a new organization called The Un- derstudies. This group doesn't do public plays, but instead they do stage perfor- mances to give members experience in acting. The club also discusses other as- pects of theater, such as set design, light- ing and sound, and stage management. According to Freddi Malone. club presi- dent, a major in a theater-related field is not necessary to join The Understudies. All that's required is an interest in drama. This past year. Shoestring Players pro- duced four plays. The Players tend to choose some of the more controversial plays, which was evidenced by The Fifth of July. The main character in Fifth was a homosexual school teacher. Jimm Cox, who portrayed the character, did a won- derful job. Even though college is for the broadening of the mind, some people in Spartanburg weren't quite ready to have their horizons broadened that widely. Student Life 41 Student Government Association A New Beginning The Student Government Associ- ation has always been an active part of campus life. However, in this case, ac- tive does not mean respected. For many years, the Student Government and the administration did not work well togeth- er. Projects supported by the S.G.A. were sure to be opposed by the admin- istration. Luckily for the students in 1988-1989, the S.G.A. and Dr. Sansbury cooperate with one another. This year's theme. A New Begin- ning •", is truly appropriate, because this is the first year S.G.A. has had an active voice in many student affairs. S.G.A. has made several contribu- tions to USCS this past year through the projects they have undertaken. On two occasions in the fall semester, tick- ets to USC football games were sold at a reduced price to students. Another noble cause that was supported was Red Ribbon Week in October. This was a national campaign to combat drug abuse. People supporting the campaign wore a red ribbon on their shirts that said: "Drug Free is the Choice For Me." Class presidents and sena- tors were sworn into their new terms. Monica Sanders presents a constitutional amendment to the full Senate. Chris Boone places a vote in the ballot box during elections. S.G.A. Senate enjoys a free meal during the induction lunch. Student Life An Added Responsibility When most people think about col- lege students, an immediate picture comes to mind. The stereotype con- sists of traits such as: recent high school graduate, very young, going to lots of parties, participating in a sorority or fraternity, living on campus or with parents, and have not learned the responsibilities of living on one's own. On the USCS campus, only a tiny fraction of the students fit such a de- scription. As of 1988, the median age of the student population was closer to 25 than to 18. Nontraditional students made up 30 percent of the total student population. For the nontraditional student, it is sometimes very difficult doing school- work and housework at the same time. For those students who live at home, they understand the problems that oc- cur when they neglect washing the dishes in order to do homework. The nontraditional student is responsible for washing the dishes, as well as doing the rest of the housework. If a nontradi- tional student does not have time to do the dishes, then none of the housework will get done. Problems such as these can be very frustrating at times. By attending college, a person is demonstrating an understanding of the importance of a college education. However, it is sometimes the added re- sponsibilities the nontraditional must bear that causes discouragement. Rubye Danley, who is a returning adult student has this to say about her return to college: "It's been a year and a The Adult Student Lun- cheon was sponsored by Student Affairs. half since I returned to college and most of the time I 'm happy with my deci- sion. But when I have tests three days in a row, papers due back to back and eight pages of homework to finish, I feel like giving up and baking brownies. Then I hear seniors talking about gradu- ation, I have to admit I'm overcome with excitement and a strong desire to con- tinue." It is the dedication and diverse experi- ence of the nontraditional students that helps to make USCS a great place.

Student Life Lending a Hand Everyone needs a little help sometime. Most professors at USCS would certain- ly agree with that statement. Thus, sev- eral professors have student assistants to help keep their offices in order. These assistants perform a variety of duties, such as filing, answering the phone, typ- ing, and mailing correspondence. Over the course of a semester, these assis- tants become invaluable to the professor by taking care of details that the instruc- tor doesn't have time for, and informing him or her of things that require immedi- ate, personal attention. Without student assistants, many professors would be unable to fulfill all of their responsibilities, particularly those professors that have the added duty of being an organization i ' . ,; advisor. To become a student assistant, one must first have the professor's approval. The next step is to go to the financial aid office and fill out a W-4 form for tax infor- mation. This form also states that you have U.S. citizenship, or a current VISA. Once this has been accomplished, one is ready to begin work. Each week, time cards are supplied to the student which the professor must sign, attesting to the fact that all work assigned for that week was completed satisfactorily. These time cards must be turned in to the financial aid office before 5 pm on Fridays. Pay is distributed once every two weeks, and one may pick up his paycheck in the pro- fessor's division office. Gloria Graves is inun- dated with work in the Fine Arts and Languages of- fice. David Harrod's skill in photo development in- creases his value to the Audio Visuals department. Student Life Financial aid fee payment is one of the most confusing times for those who work in that office. Jo Foster takes a break from entering student wage informa- tion into the computer 48 Student Life Students must first come the Financial Aid Office to pick up their check stubs before they can proceed to the actual fee pay- ment. — Financing a College Education The financial aid program at USCS seeks to provide assistance to those stu- dents who would otherwise be unable to afford a college education. Aid is given based on financial need, academic capa- bility, and in the case of an athletic team member, on athletic ability. There are several forms of financial aid open to stu- dents. These include federal grants, guaranteed student loans, work-study, and scholarships. Students who accept an award from financial aid are expected to maintain continuous progress towards the achievement of a degree. One of the most utilized forms of finan- cial aid is the college work-study pro- gram. Under this program, the student fills an employment position on campus, and is paid in part by the university, and in part by the federal government. Students are paid minimum wage, and receive their pay twice a month. One of the major limi- tations of this program is that a student may only work up to 15 hours per week. This restriction limits the amount of mon- ey a student may earn in a month, where- as a job off campus would offer an unlim- ited opportunity for earnings. Scholarships are awarded based on one of several factors. These factors in- clude a student's academic ability, finan- cial need, having a special talent in drama or athletics, or to those planning a career in a specific field. Occasionally, there are a few students who are awarded more than one scholarship in a semester or an academic year. Some students receive a scholarship and some other form of fi- nancial aid. Generally, scholarship awards are made for one year. Students are encouraged to obtain a scholarship application form from the Financial Aid Office after January 1st of any year. The completed application should be re- turned by March 1st. ROTC The Reserve Officer's Training Corp at USCS offers a four year and a two year program of instruction. These programs are offered in conjunction with Wofford College's ROTC program. Students from USCS are allowed full use of Wofford's fa- cilities. All uniforms, textbooks and sup- plies needed for the program are supplied to the student free of charge. Students fol- lowing the four year plan begin with the Basic Program, which orients students with the military rank structure and pro- vides an introduction to marksmanship and mountaineering. Further, the Soviet threat is explored, and students are ex- posed to the fundamentals of communica- tions, leadership, and nuclear, chemical, and biological warfare. The Advanced Pro- gram is normally taken during the junior and senior years, and offers instruction in leadership, military law, and the art of com- mand. Advanced students attend summer leadership camp at Fort Knox, Kentucky for six weeks of intense physical and men- tal challenge. Students may also compete for Army ROTC scholarships that pay $7000 per year for tuition, all fees, $195 per semester for books, and gives $1000 per year as a tax free allowance. Recipi- ents of these scholarships are obligated to serve with the Army for two years as a Commissioned Officer after their school- ing is complete. Snyder House at Wofford College serves as the head- quarters for the Spartanburg Area ROTC Program. rpADERSHiS SXCELLENSS Student Life , Nff R.O.T.C. DIRECTORY FIRST FLOOR * CPT. RALLS - OPNS-8-4 MA.

Student Life 51 The First of Many In 1967. a nursing program was begun at USCS to continue the nursing education program that was abolished by Spartan- burg General Hospital. This program of education has grown considerably since 1967. and has trained many qualified nurses for employment in the hospital in- dustry. For years the nursing program of- fered an Associate degree in nursing, and a baccalaureate degree for registered nurses. However, in the fall of 1986. the baccalaureate program expanded to allow entrance by those who had no previous nursing experience. This expansion has proven to be very successful, and the Spring graduation ceremony will present degrees to the first recipients of a bacca- laureate degree in nursing. Those students who wished to receive a baccalaureate degree from the USC sys- tem who had no experience in nursing were required to take the first two years of basic nursing courses at the Columbia campus. Currently USCS offers the full range of nursing courses, which eliminates the need to attend the Columbia campus to receive a degree from USC Spartan- burg. During the Nursing Recruitment Day. student nurses inquired about future job prospects. Joyce Crenshaw is studying for an organic chemistry test, which is a needed course in the four year nursing program. The Orthi Student Life An army sergeant distributes literature on the army nursing program to these B.S.N, stu- dents.

For many students, participation in athletics is the only means available to them that will pay college tuition. They find it difficult to allot time for both school and practice or games, yet they manage. An athlete s academic life seems to be a driving force in his success. All athletes know that if you do not pass your courses, you will be declared ineligible for play next year. To avoid ineligibility, good grades must be maintained. Fortunately, at USCS, there are very few players who are ineligible because of poor grades. Time management is an important part of any activity. Some activities require more planning than others. For student athletes, good time management is a way of life. Carta and Angie Gambrell excel athletically, as well as academically. Student Life Pine Gate Apartments are a convenient alterna- tive housing choice. The USCS Rifleman leads the way to official university housing. 56 Student Life I ON YOUR OWN When students come to college, it is usually the first time they have been away from home. Since this is a commuter cam- pus, a large portion of the student popula- tion lives off campus. However, some stu- dents must live on campus, because their homes are in other cities or states. It is for these students, and for those who want to live near the university, that Rifle Ridge was constructed. Rifle Ridge offers affor- dable, furnished apartments that are de- signed to accomodate four students. Some students wish to live on campus, but would rather choose their own room- mates, and have a bit more privacy than is possible at Rifle Ridge. Pine Gate Apart- ments, beside the USCS campus, offer a viable alternative for those students. Rent on one bedroom apartments begins at $325.00, with rent on larger apartments slightly more expensive. This student packs her things before leaving for the holidays.

The University of South Carolina at Spartanburg is dedicated to the principle that every student should have an equal opportunity to participate in all activities, and have equal access to all facilities. Un- der the direction of Ladonna Perry, who is the Director of Special Services to Disad- vantaged Students, the university at- tempts to meet those goals. For those stu- dents who need it, institutional special ser- vices are offered. These services include elevators in all buildings, entrances acces- sible by wheelchairs, special parking places located close to each building, and special water fountains placed at wheel- chair height. Student Life They Have The Answers "To help students academically." This is the goal of the USCS Tutoring Lab. Locat- ed in Library 274, the Lab offers assis- tance in math, English, foreign languages, physical sciences, business administra- tion, and psychology 225. Courses such as Government 201, Sociology 101, and Psychology 101 are not included in the tu- toring program because they are basically courses with heavy reading content. Fail- ure in these areas is generally caused by poor study habits rather than the failure to grasp key concepts. Usually, there are 12-13 tutors available in the academic skills portion of the tutor- ing program. They are staffed in sufficient number to accommodate students seek- ing aid during peak demand periods. Peak periods are normally prior to major tests. A typical week in the Tutoring Lab will see approximately 40-50 students seeking as- sistance. The Lab has the capacity to help many more students, but some students are hesitant to stop by because they fear negative labeling by their peers or person- al pride prevents them. John Crawford, Di- rector of the Tutoring Lab, emphasizes that everyone needs help in some endeav- or at some time. ^ The Tutoring Lab occu- pies a large room, and is prepared to handle a sig- nificant number of stu- dents. An appointment which will last for approximately thirty minutes must be made with a tutor for a specific subject.

It may mean popularity, new friends, and a new lifestyle. For others, it is an honor to represent one's alma mater and exemplify school spirit. All homecoming events were planned by the Student Government Association and their co-sponsors. These events were conducted over several days. The first event was a champagne reception in the activities building. Students, parents, and alumni were invited. Oddly enough, those who attended were required to pay $5.00 cover charge. Homecoming week, candi- dates for queen addressed the student body before a RIOT. A Mardi Gras party and a Homecoming parade were also held. On Saturday, February 11, the contes- tants and their escorts attended the USCS vs. Newberry basketball game. During halftime, the contestants were introduced. In the culmination of homecoming activi- ties, Tasha Goode was crowned the 1989 Homecoming Queen. The Homecoming contestants and their dates congregate be- fore the party. Jane Dove and her escort en- joy the champagne party given by the SGA. Student Life The ladies intently listen to the keynote speaker about Homecoming activities. Student Life 63 Dr. Sansbury gives the commencement address at summer graduation. Keynote speaker Richard Thomas gives encourage- ment to the graduates. 64 Student Life These students are mo- ments away from being col- lege graduates. THE END OF AN ERA The most awaited event in college life is graduation. The hard work and dedication of four years culminates in the presenta- tion of a college degree at the graduation ceremony. This dignified ceremony serves as the final recognition for the efforts put forth by those graduating. The purpose of a college education is to teach one how to think. The fulfillment of this purpose prepares college graduates for the real world by enabling them to deal effectively with decisions that must be made in successful business ventures. During the graduation ceremony, the Earl Gordon Medal is given to two stu- dents who have made outstanding contri- butions to the university. One male and one female student receive this award. The Earl Gordon Medal is the only individ- ual award given during graduation. Dr. Holderman, president of the USC system, attends each graduation ceremo- ny at the branch schools to confer honor- ary degrees given. Richard Thomas was awarded the Honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts at summer graduation in 1988. It is a major accomplishment to com- plete the requirements for a college de- gree. A great many of those students who enter college do not finish. It is those with determination and a desire to succeed that finally attain a Bachelor's degree. More im- portantly, it is up to those who receive col- lege degrees to become the leaders of to- morrow. Without well educated individ- uals to press forward the research needed to better society, the world would cease to advance in scientific technology, as well as in business and social structures.

It emerged in 1979 as a result of a club team, coached by Frank Kohlenstein, and consisted of Dr. Tom Davis, Dave Bellew, and a few interested stu- dents. In 1980, soccer was made an official intercollegiate sport at USCS and continues to come of age. During the Kohlenstein era, the Rifles have accumulated a record of 130-45-11, including three consecu- tive third place finishes in the NAIA National Tournament. 1983 was a landmark year for the soccer team when they had a record of 21-1-1, the best overall record nationally during that year. In addition, the Ri- fles have made the district six play- offs every year since 1981 and ad- vanced to the Area Nine playoffs four times. The 1988 season proved to be of equal excellence. The Rifles fin- ished the season with a record of 18-4-2. The team was led by Se- niors Keith Parkinson, this years leading scorer, and Inaki Sanso. In- akei set a university record for the most shut outs by a goalie in one season with 14. Other major contri- butions adding to the Rifles' suc- cess were Danny Reebok, Victor Pace, Scott Cherry, and Matthew Browne added to the defense in the backfield. The Rifles achieved a milestone in university history. On November 12, 1988, the USCS Rifles were de- feated by the College of Boca Raton Knights 2-1 in the NAIA Area Nine men's soccer championship. The Knights were ranked number one nationally and, even though they were defeated, the number 10 Rifles gained a valuable learning experi- ence that will carry over into the 1989 season.

After starting the sport at the Spartanburg campus nine years ago. soccer has come from obscurity to a nationally acclaimed power. Kohlenstein's honors include being named the NAIA and NCAA National Soccer Coach of the Year in 1984. He has also been designated NAIA District Six Coach of the year in 1981. 1983. and 1984. Kohlenstein has coached 13 different NAIA all-americans. 9 NSCAA all-americans, 14 NAIA all-area, and 20 NAIA District Six Selections. He has also coached a two time academic all-ameri- can and three academic all-district players. As Frank Kohlenstein continues to amass near per- fect seasons, so do his honors. The 1976 graduate of Florida State has also been instrumental in the improvement of Rifle Field, the home of USCS soccer. In 1985. USCS obtained a newly lighted field in order to host the NAIA National Soccer Tournament. Rifle Field is also equipped with media facilities, a concession stand, and an underground sprinkling system. Kohlenstein holds a master's degree from Mon- tana State University, and his wife Debbie, a teach- er at Pacolet Elementary, moved to Spartanburg from Niceville, Florida in 1979.

Sports 115 An Annual Event The highlight of any Rifle Soccer schedule is the Hoechst-Celanese Soccer Classic, held annually at Rifle Field. This past fall USCS won the classic against Furman University, University of Louisville, and Davis and El kins College. Ohio State, a Big 10 team, is tentatively scheduled as one of the partici- pating schools in next seasons classic. Hoechst- Celanese is the official corporate sponsor of the USCS soccer team. This past season their spon- sorship enabled the soccer team to travel to San Francisco, California to play top calibre teams. Op- portunities such as this have helped to bring na- tional honor and prestige to the University of South Carolina at Spartanburg. 116 Sports Soccer team poses with trophy won at the Hoechst-Celan- ese Soccer Classic. Senior Scott Cherry takes control of the ball in a defensive effort. Sports 117 M Volleyball is one of the most chal- lenging sports today. In volleyball, you must have quickness and co- ordination of the legs, but the one skill of utmost importance is hands and arms. It takes much upper body strength to guide an eight pound ball to the target area. The Lady Ri- fles have proven their skill and de- serve much recognition. Last year the USCS Volleyball team picked up right where they left off in 1987. In 1987, the Lady Rifles went 33- 14 while garnering their first District Six and Bidistrict II titles. They also made their first appearance in the NAIA National Volleyball Tourna- ment in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 1988, under first year head coach Mark Cooke, who replaced retiring coach Joe Bowman, the Lady Rifles continued their role of success. They went 32-12 during the season, while only dropping one District Six match. The team earned their second consecutive District Six match and Bidistrict II titles. Once again the Lady Rifles ad- vanced to the National NAIA tour- nament, held in Topeka, Kansas. Al- though USCS did not win a match at the National Tournament, they should be proud of their achieve- ments. They have been considered the best NAIA Volleyball team in Florida, Georgia, and South Caroli- na for the past two seasons.

Another key player was Angie Gambrell who was selected for the All District team along with Carla. Both girls placed in the National kills per game. Carla finished second with 5.08 and Angie finished twenty-first with 3.69. Although both Gambrells contributed greatly, the season's success was a team effort.

In fact, many members of the student body are unaware that we have a cross country team. However, the USCS Cross Country Team has maintained an excellent record, winning the District Six playoffs for four consecutive years. With this kind of record the 1988 all freshman team had plenty of reason to be intimidated. This string of ex- cellence must have inspired them instead. All five of this year's fresh- man were leaders at the high school level. USCS was very fortunate to have A thletic Director Tom Pucci re- v v £ '.-* I - - - - ^* . - -i cruit such talent to rebuild the pro- gram. These newcomers have proven to the entire student body that they are a serious group of hardworking young men. It has been a difficult season for the Cross Country team after the tragic death of Coach Pritchard Ray, but their dedication prevailed. Under the direction of Coach Tom Pucci, the USCS Cross Country team finished with an impressive second place in the District Six track meets.

Coach Ray was well-liked by everyone and had high expectations for his team. The achievements accomplished are in his honor. Sports • y J Coach Holder has four goals to be accomplished each game in order to improve the 12-13 record during the 1988 season. These goals are: 1 — avoid turnovers, 2 — halt offensive re- bounds and second shots, 3 — block- ing out after a shot, and 4 — making free throws. Holder does not expect an instant improvement or definite starters. She looked to the six returning starters from last years ' squad for leadership. Leading the way are co-captains Dawn Bowden and Tabby Welch. Bowden leads the Lady Rifles in all statistical areas. Also returning this year are juniors Monica Henderson and Carla Gambrell along with soph- omores Paula Hunter and Kelly Smith. Holder welcomed six new- comers to the squad.

After serv- ing four years as assistant coach at USC under Nancy Wilson, Holder be- came the eighth USCS coach on July 1. While with the Gamecocks she served as a recruiter and court in- structor. Before moving to South Carolina. Holder spent four years as assistant women s basketball coach at the Uni- versity of Richmond with a record of 58-24. The thirty year old Richmond, Vir- ginia native graduated from the col- lege of William and Mary in 1980 and earned a master's degree in Educa- tion at Richmond in 1982. While at William and Mary, Holder was a four year letterman in basketball and ten- nis. In high school, she lettered three years in basketball, track, and soft- ball. During her stint at USCS, Tammy Holder has gained the respect of her players, as well as the faculty. She has spent her first year trying to re- build the women's basketball pro- gram.

Those players consisted of Steve Stroup, Charles Jacobs, Richard Smith, Mike Morrman, Skip Hinson, and Johnny Berry. This year's schedule was as tough as last season. Besides the usual 15 game District Six sched- ule, the Rifles faced a tough pre- Christmas schedule with road games against Southern Confer- ence members Appalachian State and the College of Charleston.

Dur- ing his first eight seasons, Wa- ters led the Rifles to an overall record of 169-65 and a berth to NAIA District Six playoffs since 1979. Waters piloted the Rifles to their first ever 20-win season during the 1980-81 campaign with a 22-12 mark. That same year, the Rifles captured their first district title and an opportu- nity to participate in the NAIA National Tournament in Kansas City, Missouri. In the following season, the Ri- fles were unsurpassed. Building on the previous year's team, they would leave their mark as one of the best in NAIA basket- ball. That season the Rifles fin- ished 27-5 and defeated the un- beaten Biola (California) for the 1981-2 NAIA Basketball Cham- pionship. Along with strong athletics, Waters presses for excellent academic performances. Twen- ty of his twenty-eight players have earned degrees at USCS. The remaining are currently completing degree require- ments. Before Waters entered the col- legiate ranks, he was the athletic director, head basketball coach at Middleton High School in Charleston, SC. The Glennville. Georgia native received a B.S. degree in Health and Physical Education from Belmont College in Tennessee, and his master's degree from South Carolina State.

Not only must they main- tain a substantial grade point average, but they also have to attend all home and away basketball games. Under the advisement of Dave Bel- lew, the cheerleaders try to bring spirit to the athletes as well as the entire student body at USCS. They perform chants, cheers, dances, and pyramids as components of their routine. The cheerleaders practice three times a week for two hours each. The eight member squad is led by co-cap- tains Tresler Hodge and Nikki Daniels who have previous experience in cheering and gymnastics. Without these spirit leaders, the union of the student body as a whole would be extinct. Thanks to these eight ladies, the athletes will always have fans wherever their basketball schedule leads them. Go-Go the Gorilla returned after several years to help the cheerleaders promote school spirit. As the mascot returned, Joe Brookshire donned the costume well.

The Link- sters, under first-year head coach Frank Kohlen- stein, ably assisted by coach Joe Bowman, fin- ished the fall campaign with a spotless 3-0 dual match record, and a top five finish in each of the three tournaments which dotted the fall schedule. The Rifles finished second of 13 teams in the Gard- ner Webb Invitational, third in the Francis Marion Invitational. The team also tied for fifth place in the prestigious South Carolina Intercollegiate Golf Tournament, which was held at Hampton Country Club in Hampton, SC. On tap for the golfers during their spring season includes tournaments at SC State, USC Aiken, the College of Charleston, and the USCS Invitational held at Lan Yair Country Club in Spartanburg. The culmination of the Spring season will be at the District Six Tournament in Florence, SC. Members of this year's team are Jamey Amick, Daniel Neu- veaux, Chris Bridges, Stephen Walden, Keith Par- kenson, Taylor Bough, and Mitch Turner. If the fall season for the team was any indication, the Spring season for the USCS Golf team will complete a great year. Head Coach Frank Kolenstein.

During the first season, coach John Daurity and a new, talented ball team made a name for USCS Base- ball. They advanced to the District Six playoffs, finishing third with a record of 34-18-1. Their second season, the Rifles did not miss a beat as they advanced to the play- offs and finished second with a rec- ord of 36-9. Last season the Rifles again advanced to the playoffs with a record of 35-10. Even though the Rifles finished fourth in the playoffs. seven players signed professional baseball contracts. Those players are Leonard Thigpin, Rick Given, Don Brock, Tony McKinney, Ken Penland, Lindsey Robinson, and Mark Twentey Coach Daurity has high expectations for the 1989 sea- son, and a desire to win first place in the District Six Conference. Three playoffs out of three sea- sons and an overall record of 103- 37-1 is definitely something to be proud of, and a great way to begin a new era of sports at USCS. 2W*f*£ SB 4? » •" ■-•> ..: >i- 'J §&P Coach John Daurity gives batting tips to his team. 1989 SCHEDULE Date Feb.

USCS was very fortunate to acquire coach John Daurity to begin the baseball program. He is widely respected and known for his ability in his field. Formerly the head coach of the Wofford Terriers, he had previously spent ten years coaching and teaching at various high schools. During his five seasons at Wofford, he received the honor of NAIA District Six Coach of the Year, and also had three of his players drafted by professional teams. In the short time he has spent at USCS, there have been twelve players drafted by professional teams. His skill, effort, and patience have been shown on and off the field. As a person, and a coach, John Daurity is a wonderful man and the backbone of Rifle Baseball. Coach Daurity throws warm up pitches to practice batters. Senior pitcher Eric Hunter will be a valuable asset to the spring season. Last year catcher Rick Given signed a contract with the Hous- ton Astros.

The Rifle Baseball team not only excels athletically but also academically. Aca- demic eligibility plagues every member of the team, but very few are declared ineligible. The Baseball honor roll includes: Todd Ellisou (3.50), Chris Fowler (3.375), Eric Hunter (3.00), Robert Green (3.00), James Jablonski (3.00), Jeff Lips- comb (3.30), Nick Klock (3.294), Michael Fitzgerald (3. 125), and John Overcash (3. 125). Greg Morton achieved the highest GPR for the fall semester with a 3.91. Overall, the team earned a 2.449 GPR. This proves that not only do these men want an athletic career, but also an academic career. Players take last wind-before coach Daurity starts spring practice.

Sports 147 II To be a successful softball player, one must have the ability and coordination to run, catch, throw, and bat. Practicing is a long, tedious task for many athletes, yet the rewards are overwhelm- ing. The 1988 Lady Rifles worked hard all year and their prowess showed on the field. Many of their accomplishments include placing third in the Dis- trict Six Tournament, a ranking in the NAIA Top Twenty, and defeating the previously number one team of Francis Marion. Other accomplishments include beating NCAA Division I Georgia Tech four consecutive times, and eliminating Ohio State in the Virginia Invitational Tournament. The 1989 season will prove to be one of equal achievement as they compete against Division I teams and top District Six NAIA member schools. The Rifles will be led by pitchers Pauline O 'Berc and Dana Brasfield, All District outfielder Mary Jones, and outfielder Kelly Smith. Returning will be Shelly Wilson, Tracey Long, and Audrey Madden to complete the infield, with Wendy Merchant be- ing called on as a utility player. Infielder Monica Henderson will have her choice of the second base or shortstop positions. Junior college transfer pitcher, Laura Vinciguerra, will certainly be an as- set to the pitching staff. Freshmen Missy Sullivan, Shannon Montgomery, April Akin, Keeta Blanken- ship, Aniessa Bither, and Lisa Sprugeon will vie for the remaining positions. The team strategy for the 1989 season relies on the pitching staff even though they will be defen- sively inexperienced. The 1989 Lady Rifles softball schedule includes teams such as Georgia Tech, Virginia, North Carolina, and Furman University.

Head Coach Mark Cooke Sports TV — Tennis has been around the USCS campus since the early years, but has developed vastly the past three seasons. The USCS ten- nis teams developed their skills through competition with schools who have NAIA teams with estab- lished tennis programs. The recruit- ing of members for both the mens and womens teams has also im- proved through new scholarship funds. This years mens team under the direction of first year coach Alan Ferguson, played one of the tough- est NAIA schedules yet. The sea- son schedule consists of 22 match- es for the men. The womens team will also have a new coach, Tammy Holder. Holder, also the womens basketball coach, was a four year stand out on the tennis court at Wil- liam and Mary. The womens team is also scheduled for an all time high of 1 1 matches. The Rifles opened their season when they took on the 1988 National Champions, Lander Col- lege. The schedule was packed with other NAIA powers. Such powers consist of the College of Charles- ton, and NCAA schools including the Citadel, Furman, and Coastal Carolina. The Rifles tennis program looks to the future with such young talent- ed student athletes.

Sports 151 Leadership Top Seeds This years tennis team was the strongest in the University's history. The Rifles were led by returning ju- nior Ajay Loganadan, who also serves as the teams captain leading the pack on the court and off. Ajay has a G.P.R. of 3.58 in Business Ad- ministration, and plays number one for the team. Bill Castleman is also a returning starter for the team in the number two seed; Ajay and Bill to- gether hold the number one spot for doubles. With excellent recruiting contacts through the famous Nick Bolletterri (Andre Aggai's coach), Coach Alan Ferguson has recruited many other talented newcomers. All of these factors have helped the ten- nis program at USCS . . . come of age. #2 Seed Bill Castleman Patsy Vener is a top player for the Womens tennis team. 152 Sports #1 Seed Ajay Loganadan at practice under the supervi- sion of Coach Ferguson.

There are many sports for students to choose from, includ- ing softball, football, soccer, basketball, and even ping pong. The program also sponsors a few spe- cial events such as Wet and Wild Day, the annual Pumpkin Run, and the Green and White game. Par- ticipation was exceptional this year. There were many teams, yet only one could be chosen winner in each event. The "New Breed" won the Softball game and Wet and Wild Day. The "Four Horsemen" won the football tournament, and the "Scrubbs" won the soccer championship. In individual sports, Shau- kat Dossaji won the ping pong championship. Bo Keller won the one mile and coach Frank Kohlen- stein won the five kilometer race in the Pumpkin Run. For many people, intramurals are just something fun to do with friends. For others, it's a blood thirsty battle for a championship "T" shirt. Never- theless, intramurals provide a fun way to invent new team names, and make new friends.

Sports 155 Organizations I Organ izations Organizations ACCOUNTING CLUB The USCS Accounting Club was founded during the 1985-86 academic year. The purpose of the original 14 members was to "make accounting stu- dents aware of professional obligations and career opportunities in the field of accounting." Today's Accounting Club, with 75 members, has expanded the original purpose to include such goals as (1) assist members in making accounting a recog- nized major by identifying the need for accoun- tants; (2) stimulate interest in accounting topics related to the workplace: (3) learn objectives of various accounting careers: (4) assist members in building communication skills through various so- cial events: (5) assist members in making contacts with area accounting professionals. This organi- zation is composed primarily of students majoring in accounting. However, the membership is open to all students. The USCS Accounting Club pro- vides a means by which students who are interest- ed in accounting can exchange ideas. It is advised by Tom Oglesbee with their President, William Fer- guson.

The organization focuses on the development of harmonious relationships by directing its members in campus activities. Annual participa- tion in a variety of Black History Month events highlight the group's active contribution to campus life. This Club is open to all interested students.

The purpose of UBS is to provide an opportunity for those students who are interested in business to meet successful area business leaders and to help prepare its members for the future. The University Business Society offers business students a chance to become acquainted with one another, and to become familiar with the skills and requirements needed to be successful within their fields. During the club meetings every week, guest speakers were invited to edu- cate members on important business topics.

Organizations CAMPUS ACTIVITY BOARD Prior to 1987, the programming function per- formed by CAB was the responsibility of the Entertainment Committee, a standing commit- tee of the SGA. In 1987, under the leadership of Entertainment Committee Chairperson Karen Wood, she attempted to enhance the prestige and to increase campus awareness of this orga- nization by developing an identity separate from the SGA. The adoption of the name Campus Activity Board and the design of the CAB logo were two steps in this process. At the end of the 1987-88 school year this separation was formal- ized. The Campus Activity Board drew up a con- stitution, and through a vote of the SGA full senate, became a separate entity devoid of SGA control. CAB is now a fully functioning pro- gramming board with four paid positions, carry- ing out the responsibility of programming a wide variety of activities and events for the benefit of the entire student body. zf\, jt ft £ 4 ■ ' i y f k — : Mtfr aiifi $i ' **^ ft I 1 Lit 1 \ IBBlr 1 ~ ■ ^H0 Nancy Ballenger seems to be having trouble finding the CAB calendar of upcoming events.

They practice twice a week for approximately three hours and perform at all basketball games as a source of school spirit and unity. In the past, men were spirit leaders but the inter- est disintegrated over time. Other things have also changed such as the school colors, nickname, and mascot.

Organizations FELLOWSHIP OF CHRISTIAN ATHLETES "To present to athletes and coaches, and all whom they influence, the challenge and adven- ture of receiving Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, serving Him in their relationships and in the fel- lowship of the Church." This commitment reflects the ideals of the Fel- lowship of Christian Athletes. The heartbeat of FCA's ministry is the Huddle Group, which was developed to provide an environment that nur- tures and encourages personal Christian growth and fellowship, and offers opportunities for ser- vice, leadership, and church involvement. FCA's senior high and college Huddle Program encourages future FCA involvement at the adult level while building on the spiritual foundation set from junior high Huddle experiences. The Huddle assists its members in a better understanding of themselves and sharing themselves in God's love with others. FCA's commitment to its Huddle program re- flects its belief that athletes are receptive to posi- tive role models and need help in establishing and maintaining lasting and biblically-based values. Experiences in working with a Huddle will bring about many rewards, among which will be ob- serving the spiritual growth and maturity of the athletes. As Coach, one may take pleasure in seeing young athletes assume leadership roles in church and community as they develop into re- sponsible adults. The FCA is advised by John Daurity.

Organizations 165 CAROLANA In the spring of 1988, rumors were heard around campus that the yearbook could return after a sev- en year hiatus. Under the direction of Dr. Tom Da- vis, the Carolana made its debut in May of 1989. During the summer break of 1988, eight students were chosen to produce the Carolana. Those stu- dents were: Tammy Dellinger (Editor in Chief), Me- lissa Danner (Student Life Editor), Monica Stanley (Organizations Editor), Leslie Barrett (Sports Edi- tor), Marge McAlhaney (Classes Editor), Kay John- son (Business Editor), Susan Shirley (Advertising Manager), and John Elmore (Photographer). Three staff members had no previous experience on a yearbook staff, but with the assistance of Tammy Dellinger, the work progressed well. The yearbook was a complete and total success, even though they were faced with many problems as the dead- lines approached quickly. Student schedule con- flicts made it difficult to have a set meeting time for the entire staff to be together. All staff members received stipends based on their positions. The yearbook is a worthwhile, yet often overlooked or- ganization on the campus. It symbolizes the col- lection of memorabilia during the college years that will be cherished for many years. The Caro- lana offers an opportunity for growth and journal- istic experience. Carolana, Monica Stanley. How may I help you?

Since each year usually brings a new editor and staff, the paper has seen numer- ous design and style changes which have also been influenced by current styles and trends. While the staff does have fun, pro- ducing a newspaper is serious work. Typically, most of the editors work everyday except Thursday, and, on Wednesday — the day the paper is put together — most of the staff spends the entire day and night in the office. The paper is also active in national college press associations and at- tends conferences annually to keep up with current styles and to allow an intense learning experience for all members of the staff. The newspaper, which is fully com- puterized, handles all of its produc- tion except for the actual printing, which is done off campus. Funding is provided from student activity funds and advertising, which is provided by national sales representative firms. Row One: Joe Brookshire (Cartoonist), Richard White (Reporter).

In order to receive membership, one must be in the top fifteen percent of one's respective class. The USCS chapter participates in many com- munity service activities. Their most cherished benefit is the collection of soft drink tabs from alu- minum cans. This enables a dialysis patient to have one free hour of dialysis treatment for every 100 tabs collected.

Organizations 173 LAMBDA CHI ALPHA The fraternity of Lambda Chi Alpha was colo- nized at USCS April 10, 1984. The high standards and ideals of the International headquarters made it hard for the small colony to carry on. With the help of a very successful alumnist. the colony re- ceived its charter on April 16. 1988. The colony grew in size and has become a major force in student activities through soccer games and blood drives. The colony has also assisted in many prospective student visitation days by serv- ing as guides, messengers, and clean-up crews. The colony also reaches out to the community. The Lambdas raised money for the Diabetes Foun- dation, and even won first place in the Diabetes Bed Race. Their blood drives have enabled the less fortunate to purchase blood on account. The fraternity is constantly growing. They cur- rently have 44 members and have 10 associate members.

Organizations 175 LITERARY CLUB Asking the same question Alice did in Lewis Carroll's book, "What is the use of a book without pictures or conversations?" the Literary Club (TLC) was formed by students and faculty in 1986. The club members are interested not only in literature and theatre, but in the visual and aural arts as well. In previous years, members have attended plays and visited museums in Wash- ington, D.C., and in Atlanta, have participated in creative writing conferences, mass communications workships. a Samuel Beckett forum, have screened and attended films, and have sponsored panels and programs on campus. They began a film series on campus that is of the best interest of the students and ask for the student body's support. The majority of their members are English majors, but the club is open to all USCS students. Past officers include Alan Soutter, Steve Grainger, and Har- riet Sheally. The 1988-89 administration consisted of Laura Price (President), Joan Hoftizer (Vice President), Larry White (Secretary), and Kim Ford (Trea- surer). The club prides itself on both its social and intellectual dimensions and is a cultural force on campus. It is advised by Ray Merlock.

Instead, it began in 1972 to provide a vehicle for the creative efforts of USCS students. Professor Donald Knight and Andy Crosland were the first advisors. The rather unusual name is a result of a policy, then in effect, that all school publications be named to fit the rifle motif. The more obvious names were all taken, and the first editor — a Vietnam veteran — suggested Mag- gie's Drawers which signifies a miss on the target range. Anyone interested is allowed to submit poems, short stories, or artwork to the editorial staff for consideration. Colleen Dempsey. Alan Soutter. and Angela Kelly MODEL UN The purpose of the Model United Nations Club is to foster greater awareness of the need for peace- ful solutions to international problems. It also af- fords students the opportunity to improve their re- search and writing and oral communication skills through attendance at Model UN conferences held at various colleges and universities. During the Model UN Conference held at Appa- lachian State University last October, eight stu- dents from USCS participated. The students were: Alex Caceido, Jennifer Harmon, Kelly Mitch- ell, Chris Allison, Anthony Lynch, John Romine, Angela Young, and James Lyle. The students re- presented countries such as the United States, Japan, Argentina and Senegal. Four of the students from USCS received "Hon- orable Mention" awards, and James Lyle won an ' 'Excellence Performance "award for his participa- tion in one of the Model UN Security Councils. Several colleges and universities from North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, and West Virginia sent delegations to the confer- ences. Row One: James Lyle.

The students in PALS were to serve as peer counselors telling the new students about such things as the catalogue, new words they would encounter, and the registra- tion for thus PALS stood for Paraprofessional Ad- visement Leadership Staff. PALS' first advisor was Ms. Nancy M alone, who worked in Develop- mental Studies. Then, in the Spring of 1985, Pals became an official organization when a constitution and by- laws were drafted and sent to Student Affairs so that they could receive money for a budget as a campus organization. Their advisors were Ms. Joyce Miller, General Studies professor, and Ms. Resa Walch, Counselor. This year, PALS went to the Golden Age Nursing Home and took Christmas gifts to them. Also, PALS visited the University classes, and helped the advisors to register their students. Their advi- sors now are Ms. Donette Steward, Admissions Counselor and Dr. Jack Turner, Biology professor. PALS are open to all second semester freshmen and above who are familiar with the campus and want to do the work that the PALS do. Trysha Blanton intensely listens.

Members of the sorority must maintain a 2.0 grade point average and all officers have high academic standards they must also meet. Sigma Delta Psi holds many mixers throughout the year. In March 1988. the sorority and Pi Kappa Phi mixer was named "Boxer Rebellion" because everyone wore boxer shorts. In the fall of 1988. Lambda Chi Alpha and Sigma Delta Psi threw a mixer called "Sunsplash '88". A semi-formal banquet occurs in March of each year to celebrate the sorority's anniversary. Sigma Delta Psi hopes to obtain a national charter by 1989.

They meet to study South Carolina's legislative process through "hands-on" experience and to promote the political opinions of the students of South Carolina by preparing a jour- nal of legislation passed during assembly meet- ings. The journal is forwarded to the legislators at the state capital. Often, their legislation is the forerunner of the actual General Assembly's legislation, such as the "right-on-red law."

riginality ellowship Many things have changed during the twenty-one years USCS has served the Upstate community. Attendance at the regional campus has grown from 300 students in 1967 to 3200 undergraduate students and 800 graduate students in 1989. Such growth is indicative of the growth and expansion that has occurred in the university in the past two decades. One of the most important changes in the past twenty-one years is the quality and number of faculty members. Currently, more than 120 instruc- tors and professors make up the teaching staff. Approximately three- fourths of these staff members hold the highest degree in their field. USCS exists to serve the people of the Piedmont Region. The institution maintains low tuition and schedules courses at times convenient to both full and part time working students. Such dedication by the university ensures that USCS will continue to grow in the future, and become one of the most respected institutions of higher learning in the Upstate region. ccomplishments reeks nriching The purchase of a college ring shows society that you have made a major accomplishment.

There were so many obstacles to over- come. The hardest ones being those that even we, as the staff, were unaware of. For the first six months our office barely held two desks, a cabinet, and four chairs, much less eight staff members. To say the least, we got to know each other real well, real fast. However, bonds started to Colophon appear where barriers were before. When the staff members had to pull together, casual acquaint- ances soon became close friendships. Experience was not our greatest as- set — dedication was. The staff has tried very hard to put together a book the students of USCS can be proud of. Many long hours of work have gone in to the produc- tion of the yearbook. I hope you will enjoy it, for it was an experience I shall never forget.
