COMING OF AGE 

USCS after 21 years 



USCS was established in 1967 to continue the nurs- 
ing education program that was abolished by Spartan- 
burg General Hospital. 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.

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!

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?

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

sources Foundation, this group looks 
pleased.

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.

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!

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.

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. In

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.

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.

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

A Time of Remembrance 



Founder's Day has been an annual event 
on campus since 1975. 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.

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 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.

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

cheon was sponsored by

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.

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.

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.

College serves as the head- 
quarters for the Spartanburg

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.

Work and Play 

A thletic activities ha ve always played an 
important role in USCS history. 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.

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.

The University of South Carolina at

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-

tempts to meet those goals. For those stu- 
dents who need it, institutional special ser-

sible by wheelchairs, special parking 
places located close to each building, and 
special water fountains placed at wheel-

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.

Homecoming 
Festivities 

Homecoming means many things to 
many people. 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 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.

School of Business 




The School of Business Administration and Economics offers a professional program that prepares students for entry 
level jobs in business and industry. The business curriculum gives a broad background in liberal arts, and allows students 
enough flexibility to arrange their courses around their particular interests and goals. Students majoring in Business 
Administration may elect to concentrate in accounting, economics/finance, management, marketing, or administra- 
tion/computer information systems. A student wishing to major in Business Administration should begin taking all of the 
recommended mathematics and statistics courses in the first semester of the freshman year in order to be admitted to the 
School's upper division at the end of the sophomore year. 



School of Education 




wnue ottering programs in early childhood, elementary, middle, sec-

the School of Education is to equip students with the means necessary 
to the development and enrichment of future students. 

The construction of the Administration building in the late

HOLD ON TO THE MOMENT 



Single file and yet together, 
We have shared our greatest days. 
And we carry common memories 
In different ways. 

Though we don't know where we're going, 

We will cherish where we've been. 

I want to cry. 

I want to shout . . . 

Want to let this feeling out. 

Hold on to the moment. 
Let the feelings show. 
Hold on to the moment. 
Never let it go. 



I can picture us together 
With my arms around my friends. 
Just let me hold on to this moment, 
Before it ends. 

There was laughter. There were tears, 
Through the many golden years. 
— Author Unknown

Soccer was not an intercollegiate 
sport initially at USCS. 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.

The 

Kohlenstein 

Era 



Frank Kohlenstein is the father of soccer at 
USCS. 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.

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.

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.

Outstanding 
Achievements 



Leading the way in 1988 was third 
team NAIA Ail-American selection 
Carla Gambrell. Carla received other 
honors including District Six player of 
the year, and tournament most valu- 
able player. 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. The Lady 
Rifles will sorely miss seniors Tonya 
Wright, and Tracey Pittington. Tracy 
finished a wonderful college career in 
sports as well as academically. She 
made the Athletic Director's honor 
roll with a 4.0. Tracy is a physical edu- 
cation major.

Cross Country is sometimes one 
of the less recognized sports at 
USCS. 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. This young, talented 
team guarantees USCS at least 
three more seasons of success.

The 1988 Cross Country season was dedicated to the memory of Coach 
Pritchard Ray who was tragically killed in an automobile accident early in the 
season. Coach Ray was well-liked by everyone and had high expectations for 
his team. The achievements accomplished are in his honor.

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. Those athletes 
are Franky Norris, Jametria Hannah, 
Missy Sullivan, Kristy Hardin, Shon

A Rebuilding Year 



The 1989 season marks Holden's 
first year as the head basketball 
coach of the Lady Rifles. 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. Considering that the past 
year's team did not make a champi- 
onship effort, Coach Holder has done 
remarkably well.

The Runnin' Rifles began the 
1989 season with high hopes. After 
completing the 1988 season with a 
16-10 record, the Rifles tried to 
overcome the absence of their Dis- 
trict Six leading scorer and re- 
bounder, Terry Steward. Additional- 
ly, Derrick Robinson, Rodney 
Mayers, and Teddy Gray will be 
missed. 

Four players who started in a ma- 
jority of Rifles basketball games 
last season will return for the 1988- 
89 season. Those players are Todd 
Gambrell, Mike Selvy, Mike Hayes, 
and Willis Woodruff. Freshman 
Ulysses Hacket of Orangeburg, SC 
will add his prowess to the court. 
Also returning from last year's 
squad John Kaminski, Jeff Waters, 
and Robbie Cason. 



Coach Jerry Waters, with assis- 
tant coaches Steve Roberts and 
Waren Riley, welcomed six new- 
comers to the USCS athletic 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. They

>A Career of Excellence 



The 1989 basketball season 
marks the ninth year of Jerry 
Waters reign as head basketball 
coach and assistant athletic di- 
rector in charge of facilities. 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. 

Waters is married to the for- 
mer Beth Adkins of Glennville, 
and they reside in Inman, SC. 
They have two sons, Jeff (20), a 
guard for the Rifles, and Jason 
(13).

The 200th Win 



Jerry Waters began the 1989 season ten games 
shy of 200 wins. On January 23, 1989 the Runnin' 
Rifles decisively defeated the Benedict College Ti- 
gers 101-72 to give Coach Waters the win he need- 
ed to achieve a milestone in USCS coaching histo- 
ry- 

The basketball team was fired up as they pro- 
ceeded to lead 47-20 at half time. The team mem- 
bers purchased a celebration cake, and wanted to 
make Jan. 23rd the night he should celebrate his 
200th win. Every member of the team was able to 
play and score while leading the Rifles to a victory. 
The win improved the team's overall season rec- 
ord to 10-5. 

Deonia Simmons stupified the crowd by per-

ters and John Kaminski scored nine and seven 
points respectively.

USCS vs. Newberry 

Anticipation was on everyone's face including 
the homecoming contestants on February 11, 
1989. As each contestant hoped to win the crown, 
the basketball team worked to win the game. 

Finally, halftime arrived and all of the contes- 
tants were anxious to see who would be crowned 
as the USCS alumni looked on. Tasha Good, a 
junior and president of Sigma Delta Psi sorority, 
was crowned Homecoming Queen 1989. Tasha 
was the 1985 Homecoming Matron-of-honor at 
Dorman High School in Spartanburg. 

The theme of this year's homecoming ceremony 
was "There's no place like home." It was duly 
named because USCS alumni were invited back 
for a reunion. Weeklong activities were planned 
and the homecoming was deemed a success. 

Another easy lay up for the Lady Rifles.

Spirit Leaders 



It takes a special young lady to be a 
cheerleader. 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 return of a mascot 
has shown the students and the sur- 
rounding community that USCS is a 
growing school, and should be re- 
spected for its accomplishments. 



Nikki Daniels and Leia Batson always put their best foot forward, when cheering for the Rifles.

The 1988-89 edition of the USCS golf team was 
off to a great start after the fall season. 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

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.

Baseball was added as an Inter- 
collegiate sport at USCS in 1986. 
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.

About the 
Coach 

It takes a great coach to make a great team. 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.

Honor Roll 



Many people assume that if you are an athlete, 
you are unintelligent. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Intramural sports at USCS offer variety, fun and 
the thrill of competition to students. 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.

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 UNIVERSITY 

BUSINESS 
SOCIETY 




The University Business Society is an entertaining and informative club 
that promotes participation from all its members. 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. This year, three main social 
events were planned — one at the end of each semester and a trip to New 
York during Spring Break.

ART LEAGUE 



Despite some popular beliefs, the 
Art League is not a finger-painting 
class. Instead, this organization is 
the primary producer of the artwork 
displayed in the Smith Building Art 
Gallery. By providing art-related ac- 



tivities and seminars, the Art League 
promotes an interest in art for its 
members. Advised by Katie Hicks, 
the Art League is one of the most 
active organizations on campus and 
is open to all interested students.

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.

CHEERLEADERS 



The USCS Cheerleaders are the most dedicated 
and hardworking young ladies on campus. 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. 

The 1988-1989 squad was led by Nikki Daniels 
and Tresler Hodge who served as co-captains. 
Their advisor is Dave Bellew.

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.

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.

CAROLINIAN 



The Carolinian, which began in 
1968, has undergone many changes 
in its twenty-one year history. 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.

GAMMA BETA PHI 






Gamma Beta Phi is an honor and service organi- 
zation for all colleges and universities. It serves to 
promote the development and leadership ability 
and character in its members, and to improve edu- 
cation through proper service projects. 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. Other activities include the col- 
lection of dog food coupons for the animal shelter, 
and the performance of a fundraiser to finance a 
$500 scholarship each year.

GOSPEL CHOIR 




The Gordon-Colloms Gospel Choir is one of the 
busiest student organizations on the USCS cam- 
pus. Under the direction of English faculty member 
Warren J. Carson, the choir boasts 70 members 
andhas traveled to several states to give concerts. 
In addition, the choir is in huge demand locally. 

The choir performs mostly contemporary gospel 
music, but spirituals and gospel songs are also 
part of the repertoire. The choir is open to any 
interested student; no experience in singing or 
playing gospel music is required, only a sincere 
interest and a lot of energy. The choir rehearses on 
an average of three hours per week, and performs 
about six times per semester. Several gospel mu- 
sic scholarships are available to talented and de- 
serving students; ten such scholarships were 
awarded in 1988-89. 



The Gospel Choir practices their Christmas songs during 
Friday rehearsals.

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.

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.

MAGGIE'S DRAWERS 




Maggie's Drawers does not refer to a woman's 
undergarment. 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.

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.

PALS 




PALS was first organized in the Spring of 1983 
as a volunteer service to work with the Freshman 
Center during Orientation and registration of 
freshman and transfer students. 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.

known as 'Doc", the Pep Band has 
flourished to an all-time high of twen-

In addition to performing at the 
basketball games, the Pep Band 
plays for community functions. Mem-

PHOTO CLUB 





There are many myths about the Photo Club. The 
fact is, all you have to do is like to learn, produce 
photographs, and have FUN! 

In the past years, their meetings have featured 
Thomas McCarver, a prominent photojournalist at 
the Spartanburg Herald Journal, a view from a former 
member and many educational films on photography. 
Field trips are also a vital part of the club. 

This year they have planned more films, field trips, 
and photo contests more than ever. If you are inter- 
ested, see Becky Gray at Audiovisuals on the bottom 
floor of the Media Building.

CLUB 



The Political Awareness Club offers those stu- 
dents interested in politics an outlet for their ideas.

PSYCHOLOGY CLUB 




The Psychology Club is open to all students, 
faculty, and staff at USCS, and it is especially rec- 
ommended to those who are interested in a major 
or concentration in psychology. Meetings are held 
on a monthly basis and each meeting is devoted to 
a specialty area in psychology. Guests and fea- 
tured speakers are from the community. Related 
activities, and socials, are all a part of the agenda 
and help build comraderie among the members. A 
field trip to a facility where psychologists work is 
generally scheduled each year. The club is newly 
re-formed under the advisement of K. Macrae and 
is constantly growing.

SCIENCE 
CLUB 

The Science Club is one of the most active clubs on 
campus with one to two activities each month plus 
bimonthly meetings. Activities include field trips to 
local industries and explorations into the habitat of 
rare and endangered species such as the longearred 
turtle and the confederate daisy, and week long trips 
to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. 
and the coral reefs of Florida. Through such activities 
the members learn about the unique biology of the 
upstate and learn what current research is being con- 
ducted in the area. 

Community involvement is encouraged in the club. 
For the past years members of the group have col- 
lected toys for the underprivileged children each 
Christmas and assisted with tutoring students here 
at USCS. 




Even in 1970, Biology students were required to go on field trips.

SIGMA DELTA PSI 



Sigma Delta Psi is a local social sorority founded on March 23. 1987 by 
Monica Sanders, Anne Harlan, Amanda Hart, and Shelia Roberts. It began 
with only ten members but grew to forty-five by October 1988. Sigma Delta 
Psi members enjoy the closeness of sisterhood and the bonds of lifelong 
friendships. 

Sigma Delta Psi's philanthropy is F.A.C. T. (Fight Against Cancer Today) to 
help those afflicted with cancer. Each member must dedicate a certain 
amount of time monthly to the function. 

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. 

Sigma Delta Psi acknowledges the starfish because their membership, or 
arms, can grow from five to fifty and when one arm breaks, another grows in 
its place.

TUDENT GO VERNMENT 
ASSOCIATION 



The Student Government Association is an organization 
that has grown by leaps and bounds along with the campus 
itself. From a group of 15 students in 1969, SGA now has 50 
active members on its roll. Many SGA presidents have 
paved the way in the past for students at USCS to have the 
best environment to learn and grow in today. The SGA is a 
vital force on campus and has proven that the administra- 
tion listens to what Student Government says. 

The past year has been one of the best ever. President 
Monica Sanders has been the first college age President in 
five years. The Sanders administration has worked dili- 
gently to improve USCS for the students as well as for the 
members of the SGA. 

The past year has seen the SGA develop a new letter- 
head allowing for more professional looking correspon- 
dence and name recognition. Student Government has had 
stipend evaluations grading the executive offices on their 
performance for the first time ever. SGA has created a new 
awards program recognizing SGA members and non-mem- 
bers for outstanding performance of duties. They have be- 
gun strict regulation of Roberts Rule of Order to provide 
more professionalism at full senate meetings. The SGA 
was the vital factor in opening the closed spaces along 
Hodge Drive in the Fall. Student Government has been alive 
this year with determination and vision for a better USCS 
community. It has been the largest SGA ever and intends to 
grow. 



The 1988-89 members of the Executive Council are Paul Licurs 
(Vice-President). Monica Sanders (President). Eugene Johnson 
(Treasurer). Chad McConnell (Parliamentarian), and Chris 
Boone (Secretary).

Advised by Jim Griffis, this organization is de- 
voted to expanding the cognitive abilities of its 
members. To gain a better understanding of perti- 
nent issues of today, detailed discussions are held 
on such topics as abortion and space exploration. 

As the presidential election came to a close, the 
Society of Free Thinkers spent much of their time 
talking about the functions and beliefs of both the 
Democratic and Republican parties. 

The Society of Free Thinkers are the primary 
publishers of Cogito. Printed several times each 
semester, the newsletter serves as a forum in phi-

bers, and activities which aid in the development of 
the whole person and their professional role.

STUDENT LEGISLATURE 




Student Legislature is a state-wide organization 
in which student delegates representing all the 
state's colleges and universities meet in general 
assembly twice a year. 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." 

The Student Legislature has often been the be- 
ginning for many of South Carolina politicians ' po- 
litical careers, such as Governor Campbell, Lt. 
Governor Theodore, and Senator Hollings.

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.

The 1989 Carolana was compiled by the 
Carolana staff. The Delmar Company in 
Matthews, North Carolina printed and 
smyth sewn bound 500 copies. The sales 
representative was Bob Morgan and Amy 
Belk was the customer service representa- 
tive. 



The theme, "Coming of Age", developed 
throughout the book, focuses on the uni- 
versity's twenty-first birthday. The cover, 
designed by the staff, is a green rub Lexo- 
tone material K-23 with a metallay foil 
stamp SG-40 applied to the embossed 
seal, title, date, and backbone. The end- 
sheets are Parch White 135. 



AII232 pages are 80 pound, 9X ^enam- 
el paper, rounded and backed with a head- 
band. Type styles were Helvetica Medium 
Italic 8 and Zapf Chancery Medium 106

I can 't believe this year 
has slipped away so 
quickly. When I look back, I 
honestly can't believe we 
made it. 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.
