Even with the shell of our burned building in the 
background, life seems to go on. Could it be because we have 
experienced a more piercing fire than that which gutted our 
material things? We know a more powerful force than what 
can take away our earthly goods. We do not put our worth 
in the tangibles, but place our hope in a holy God. That is 
why, months after this tragedy, we can stand and truly say 

We're Still On Fir el 

Commoner 2000 

Volume 68 

William Jennings Bryan College 

Dayton, Tennessee 


2 Opening 

Realizing that it is often a risk to state the 
obvious, the fire that swept through our 
Administration building this February has cre- 
ated a schism. This year seems to have been 
split in two, but not with Christmas break as the 
median. Instead, we relate to our life here on 
the hill as pre-fire and post-fire. The 
following pages contain 
tion of that mindset, go 
in general chronolog- 
ical order with 
the fire as a 
divider. This is a 
monumental ex- 
ample of the power 
of our God and the 
temporal nature of so 
much we hold dear. 
Perhaps it was Satan 
who started the fire in our 
building, but it was most 
definitely God who directed 
it and who is continuing to 
use this event in our lives. 
Many tears have been shed, and 
many optimistic words have 
been given. Our testimony has 
shone to those outside our com- 
munity and our God has been glo- 
rified. If that is always our main goal, 
will we not always shine? Our task now 
is to not lose our steady confidence in 
God's providence and to be constantly 
aware of all that He continues to do for us 

Opening 3 


Life was so peaceful and serene on Bryan Hill. We were so comfortable. We 
took much for granted in our bubble. We did give God the glory for the ob- 
vious and anything else that came to mind. But. oh what things we took for 
granted! One thing many of us did not fully appreciate was the Administra- 
tion building on our own campus. How do we know this? Compare the 
amount of pictures taken during/after the fire to those taken before. How 
we struggled to find a shot of that building before it became a charred shell. 
There were shots with a building background, shots of people in the build- 
ing, and even people working outside of the building, but no shots just of 
the building. In retrospect, what should our attitude have been?

Welcome Week 

Welcome Week 

A President Speaks of Her First Week. 

Confusion outlined the arrival and 
registration of our freshman class (c/o 
2003!!!). This confusion is formally 
known as welcome week. We scram- 
bled to obtain bank accounts, join 
small groups, decorate our rooms, re- 
gister for classes, say our final good- 
byes, and wait in line for hours and 
hours only to find that the I.D. picture 
machine is broken. Amidst this 
"confusion", we defined our expecta- 
tions of Bryan for the next four years. 
We expect to be challenged. We ex- 
pect to learn. We expect to be broken. 
We expect to grow. We expect to seek 

the Lord. We expect to worship. We 
expect to place Christ above all. We 
expect to unite. 

Our class has an incredible and 
ever-increasing desire to please the 
Lord. Our prayer is that we never lose 
this thirst for Christ. 
"The one thing I want from God, the 
thing I seek most of all; is the privilege 
of meditating in His temple, living in 
His presence everyday of my life, de- 
lighting in His incomparable glory." -

Service Project 

It is customary during the 
opening week of each school 
year to provide an opportuni- 
ty for service. This year, the 
freshmen and small group 
leaders were able to help on 
the new softball fields here in 
Dayton. Because they were 
so new. the rocks had not 
been removed from the play- 
ing area yet. Our willing stu- 

dents assisted on a Saturday 
by tediously picking up each 
and every rock. It was a fun 
time to spend with other stu- 
dents, getting to know each 
other and serving someone 
else. This is definitely a tra- 
dition that should be contin-

My experience in SGA was ab- 
solutely tremendous this year. 
Serving as the Executive Assis- 
tant gave me the opportunity to 
be involved in the things going 
on around campus and to get a 
feel for all that SGA actually 
does for students. Not only do 
they provide activities for us. but 
they also minister spiritually to 
the student body, serve as a liai- 
son between students and the ad- 
ministration, and even work 
with the Operations department 
on issues that concern students. 
Sometimes the issues we dealt 
with were tough and the meeting 
were long (the record was five 
and a half hours!), but we feel 
like we accomplished a lot for 
the student body this year. In a 
way, it seems like the difficulties 

surrounding the fire in February 
served to bring us all closer to- 
gether, and I feel like SGA had a 
large part in that, doing things 
like providing refreshments for 
the student workers clearing the 
building and an information dis- 
tribution center for faculty and 
students. It wasn't all work this 
year, however. We had a great 
group of corporate body mem- 
bers who could work well togeth- 
er and have fun at the same 
time. Times when we were all 
together like the spring and fall 
leadership conferences will be 
fun that I know we will all re- 
member. My experience in SGA 
has been one othat impacted my 
life and one that I definitely en-

I think everyone 
should be an RA. I 
love it because at the 
beginning of every 
year, the SDO staff 
hands out these 
"wonder pills" to all 
the RA's. These pills 
give unlimited energy 
and make us perfect 
in every way. In fact, 
since the day that I 
partook of the pill, I 
haven't skipped a sin- 
gle class and I've been 
to every single chapel. 
(And I loved them and was wide 
awake! Can you imagine?) Plus 
(this is the good part), I haven't 
committed a sin or broken a rule. 
It's amazing! No wonder they say 
that we're a breed of our own! And 
no wonder everyone is afraid of us! 
Who wouldn't be?! 

Just kidding. Believe it or not, 
RA's are; just like everyone else (but 
don't tell anyone). We aren't the 
perfect Christians, we don't go to 
every chapel, and, I know this is 
hard to believe, but we're NOT out 
to get you. We're not the mafia. 
We're just a small group of crazy 

college students who hap- 
pen to get the privilege of 
encouraging our fellow stu- 
dents to live like Christ — 
and having that be our job. 
We've definitely had fun 
this year — from Brace's 
bad dreams to the Monday 
night wrestling matches at 
our meetings. There are so 
many memories and funny 
stories to tell, but I think 
the thing that stands out 
most to me about being an 
RA this year has been on a 
more personal level. I'm 
thankful for the chance to 
have gotten to know people 
besides the friends I hang 
out with on a regular basis. 
God has also worked in me 
through this position — 
changing my hard heart 
and revealing some of my 
flaws and guiding me to be- 
come more like Him. It 
was, overall, a good experi- 
ence. I learned a lot and it 
was a blast.

All-School Picnic 

Kicking off the school year, we 
all gathered for a time of fellow- 
ship at Fall Creek Falls. We play- 
ed games in the morning — class 
against class. Winner of class 
competitions? Afterwards, we 
had some chicken grilled for us 
by none other than our very own 
faculty members. After we ate, 
we were free to do whatever we 

wanted. Some of us hiked to the 
bottom of the falls. Some ex- 
plored the swinging bridge and 
swam in the cold water. It was a 
nice day for all of us to get to- 
gether and spend some time of 
fellowship before the school year 
was officially kicked off.

Bryan Fest 

When Homecoming rolled around, 
students, alumni, and Caravaners alike 
were treated to the musical sounds of 
the first-ever BryanFest. BryanFest was 
a musical festival, which included the 
groups The Elms, Plaid, Polarboy, and 
the headlining group Big Tent Revival. 
During the course of the event, festival- 
goers danced and moshed their way 
into the evening hours and into school 
history. Bodysurfing was an event en- 
joyed by much of the crowd with many 
of our well-known and loved profes- 
sor's sons atop the array of people 
(namely, Drs. Legg and Fouts). Even 

though the school was expecting a large 
crowd to attend the inaugural event, 
only a small percentage showed. This 
lack of numbers, however, was at- 
tributed to first-year struggles. Bryan- 
Fest is expected to be a much bigger 
and better event for the 2000 schedule - 
complete with more well-known per- 
formers and a more organized struc- 
ture. Eventually, BryanFest is geared to 
become one of the top Christian music 
festivals in this area.

Coach's Comments 

This year's freshman recruiting 
class was the best yet, with five of 
them earning starting positions. 
Seniors Baker, Jenkins, Hammond, 
Fagan, and James were the best role 
models we've ever had on the 
squad. The younger players could 
look to them and see how they were 
expected to perform and live, both 
on and off the field. 

The most credible commenda- 
tions come from outside. A college 
coach from Georgia, who played 
many of the colleges in our area, 
has gone on record saying Bryan 
has the best program in the area. 
What makes this all the more 
meaningful is this coach's evalua- 
tion is through a Christian world- 
view. To God be the glory.

Making a Lasting Difference 
In the Lives of the Elderly 

The Senior Adult Ministry is a 
way to be involved in the lives of 
the elderly who do not have fam- 
ily and friends nearby. Once a 
week several different groups go 
into the community and make 
an ever-changing impression on 
someone's life. It is so special to 
see the light in a person's eyes 

come alive when attention has 
been shown to a needy soul. Bry- 
an has a great opportunity to be 
a witness to the elderly through 
this ministry. Sharing your life 
with another person is never 
time wasted.

The first five days of "Spirit Week" 
were highlighted by wild and crazy at- 
tire donned in support of Bryan College 
athletics and all-around school spirit. 
Each day had its own theme - "Color 
Day," "Decade Day," "Down on the 
Farm Day," "Red and Gold Day," and 
"Bryan Wear Day." Spirit Week, with 
all its antics and exuberance, culminat- 
ed with Homecoming festivities on Sat- 
urday. Alumni from all over the U.S. 
came to the Bryan College campus for 
various reunions and events. But for 
the current Bryan students, the place to 
be on Saturday afternoon was the soc- 
cer fields. The activities included men's 
and women's soccer games versus Han- 
nibal-LaGrange College. The moment 

everyone was waiting for, however, oc- 
curred at halftime of the men's soccer 
game. The Homecoming Court took the 
field and the King and Queen were 
crowned. The Homecoming Court in- 
cluded: Freshmen Josh Bales, Sasha 
Morgan, Quentin McCuiston, and Va-

Bible Education Struggles to 
Minister in Public Schools 

The Bible Education 
Ministry gives Bryan stu- 
dents an opportunity to 
teach the Word of God in 
four Rhea County public 
schools as well as to model 
Christ-like characteristics 
in the classroom. At the be- 
ginning of the year, ap- 
proximately one-fifth of 
the student body commit- 
ted to teaching every 

Thursday morning for a half 
an hour. BEM does not favor 
a certain denomination; the 
teaching comes directly from 
the Bible. The purpose of 
BEM is to plant the Word of 
God in the hears of young 
boys and girls, and we rest in 
the promise of Isaiah 55:11.

One of the best parts 
of my semester was 
driving cross- 
country to get to 
L.A. Here I am with 
my best friend 
Elaine somewhere

way, I highly recom- 
mend Arizona for a

L.A. is only four hours from Vegas, so 
fifteen of us went for the weekend 
following "graduation." I'm still 
amazed that 12 people really can 
sleep in one hotel room!

(Top. Right) L.A. was not all 
hanging out on Studio lots. We 
also had to do schoolwork — ours 
just happened to be making films. 
Here. Josh and Derek are sorting 
through sections of film in order 
to edit their project. 

L.A. Trip 

If home is where the heart is. my 
home is definitely in Los Angeles. In 
Christian circles. Los Angeles is often 
referred to as the "Devil's back- 
yard/playground," but I see it as a place 
of opportunity — opportunity to have 
an exciting and challenging career, to 
see those gorgeous Oscar dresses in per- 
son, to have easy access to places like 
Las Vegas and San Francisco, and to 
make an impact for Christ in the en- 
tertainment industry. 

That's the spirit behind the Los An- 
geles Film Studies Center. A program 
endorsed by the Council for Christian 
Colleges and Universities, the Center's 
focus is to equip Christian students 
with the tools and connections to begin 
careers within the industry. Students 
who go through the program have re- 
quired internships and often work with 
and for some very famous and talented 
people. Granted, you don't get to see 
these people much, but it sure does 
sound good to your friends back home! 

Last semester, we had students work- 
ing at the production companies of 
Jodie Foster, George Clooney, Joel Sil- 
ver (of Die Hard fame), and James 
Cameron (Titanic). I worked on the 
NBC lot for a Spelling Entertainment 
soap opera called "Sunset Beach." 
Those of you who know me know that I 
was right in my element. That's right, 
it's all about hair and make-up. 

Even though the internship is the ma- 
jor part of the L.A. experience, I did 
have to take classes. I now have training 
in areas such a producing, directing, 
editing, cinematography, lighting, and 
acting. (For you writers out there, you 
can also learn about screenwriting.) 
Honestly, it was one of the best times of 
my life. I learned a tremendous amount 
and loved scaring my mom with my 
purple hair and nose ring when I came 
home! (You know I had to at least ap-

Coach's Comments 

"There were spots that we could've 
played better and gone further. We 
started strong (6-0), which only hel- 
ped build expectations for the year. 
We let a few games slip, but that is 
motivation for next year. Seniors 
have been part of the building proc- 
ess, have put things together and 
worked hard. They have had a huge 
impact on the team."

His Hands 

Ministering Through Puppetry 

Puppets have a unique gift to 
minister to children in a way 
that no "real person" can. They 
capture their attention and ig- 
nite imagination. For this rea- 
son. I consider it a real privilege 
to be able to use them in the 
public schools to teach God's 
Word. Since the His Hands min- 
istry works so closely with BEM. 
the problems they encountered 
this year affected this ministry as 
well. We weren't sure what was 
going on for a while because we 
thought we might not be allowed 
in the schools anymore. But then 
we resumed our weekly excur- 
sions. At the beginning of the 
second semester, we were scram- 
bling to get a new program to- 
gether and ready to perform. 
And then, our second, more se- 

vere setback occurred when fire 
ravaged the building where all of 
our supplies were kept. It took a 
little while to get what we needed 
for our performances, and we 
performed a few times without a 
stage. We had some great 
BEM/CARE teachers who were 
willing to hold our curtain 
through the whole performance. 
Despite our trials (which are 
insignificant compared to God's 
grace), we still had an awesome 
year of ministry for our Lord. A 
lot of the kids responded very 
well to our message and one class 
even made cards for us. It is so

34 Twelfth Night 

Twelfth Night 

"I was one, sir, in this interlude; one 
Sir Topas, sir . . . ," and I loved it. Being 
in Shakespeare's Twelfth Night was a 
terrific honor. From the first day of 
practice, to the last night of perfor- 
mance, there was a mingling of intim- 
dation and fun for me. Coming to col- 
lege, a freshman not knowing very 
many people, was enough to give me a 
complex as a frightened little dork. But 
if I wanted to do something that I loved 
so much, which was acting, I was going 
to have to get up in front of all my 
peers, who I knew so few of (a thing that 
did very well in heightening the intimi- 
dation factor). However, when I took 
those first few stops out on stage, and 
the butterflies, instead of fluttering, be- 
gan to gnaw on the lining of my stom- 
ach. I couldn't have asked for anything 
better. This story of "boy looks like girl 
and girl pretends to be boy" was wrap- 
ped in fun and excitement from the 
beginning. I got to know and work with 
so many awesome people in the play 
who are now my friends, and I was able 
to joke around and be foolish 

(something I delight in as often as I 

I used to hate Shakespeare. I couldn't 
understand it, I didn't like it, and over- 
all I thought it was stupid. It wasn't 
until a couple of years ago. when I ac- 
tually saw some of Shakespeare's work 
done, that I began to love it. It was the 
actors that did it for me. I was amazed 
at how they were able to draw me into 
the language and make me understand 
it. Whenever I do Shakespeare, this is 
what I strive to do. I want to act and 
communicate it in such a way that the 
audience is able to enjoy, if not love, 
something that can be a hidden treas- 
ure. God has blessed me so much in the 
opportunity I have had to act in Twelfth 
Night, and I pray that many more sim- 
ilar opportunities will open up while 
I'm at Bryan, because I love it. 
"A great while ago the world begun, 
with a hey, ho, the wind and the rain. 
But that's all one, our play is done, and 
we'll strive to please you every day."

for Life 

Once again, God has work- 
ed through Students For Life in 
ways that were beyond anything 
we could have done or imagined. 
We had incredible opportunities 
to minister on-campus and off- 
campus. We were able, through 
the Women's Care Center, to 
reach out and help meet the em- 
otional, physical, and spiritual 
needs of many hurting people. A 
Scripture passage that comes to 
my mind in regards to much of 
our ministry this year is James 
2:14-18. This passage speaks of 
having opportunities to share 
the Gospel with people by meet- 
ing their physical needs. We 
have learned much about not 
only caring for the unborn, but 
for all people — reaching out to 

comfort them and share God's 
peace with them. 

by Vashti Pearson 
James 2:14-18' 

"What good is it, my broth- 
ers, if a man claims to have faith 
but has no deeds? Can such faith 
save him? Suppose a brother or 
sister is without clothes and dai- 
ly food. If one of you says to 
him, 'Go, I wish you well; keep 
warm and well fed,' but does 
nothing about his physical 
needs, what good is it? In the 
same way, faith by itself, if it is 
not accompanied by action, is 
dead. But someone will say, 
'You have faith; I have deeds." 
Show me your faith without 
deeds, and I will show you my 
faith bv what I do." 

Students set a record in 

helping others this Christmas.

Okay, okay, April Fool's edi- 
tion aside, this year's Triangle 
was much more instrumental in 
meeting the needs of the stu- 
dents than in previous years. Ac- 
cording to the new editor-in- 
chief David Ritterbush, "We've 
made a lot of changes. I think the 
student body benefited." 

Some of the changes came 
about because of the new staff 
sponsor. John Carpenter, editor 
of the local Herald News. Besides 
trying to strengthen the paper's 
reputation with the students. 
Carpenter provided many op- 
portunities for the staff and ad- 
ded variety to the meetings. Sev- 
eral staff members took a wild 
ride (with Carpenter at the 
wheel) to the World Journalism 
Institute in North Carolina for a 
conference on the role of the 
Christian journalist. He also in- 
vited the staff to eat dinner and 
meet in his home. It must be 

noted that his wife makes killer 
chicken fajitas. 

Aside from the strangeness of 
the Monday night classes, and 
even more bizarre, the Tuesday 
nights spent putting the paper 
together, Triangle had a very 
productive year. The fire issue 
was the edition of which the staff 
is particularly proud. Twelve 
pages long, with a large color 
photo of the Administration 
Building engulfed in flames, the 
February 1 2 edition was entirely 
student produced in just two 
days — a masterpiece that even 
made Ghandi (a.k.a. David 
Ritterbush) proud. 

Overall, the Triangle under- 
went a lot of changes in this year 
— most of them for the better, 
some of them for the weirder. . . 
but the staff had a great time.

"Oh no! It started ten minutes ago! 
Just a few last-minute adjustments on 
this corsage..." This was a familiar 
sound the night of the Christmas ban- 
quet, since everyone knew there was to 
be a contest for the best homemade 
corsage. Once there, Argo's was dec- 
orated with a gorgeous Christmas tree, 
poinsettias, and Christmas m&m's on 
the tables. 

For part of the entertainment, two 

guys were chosen from each class to 
form two teams for a special competi- 
tion. Each team was given a popular 
Christmas song that they had to sing to 
the tune of another Christmas song. 
After a few minutes of practice, the 
upperclassmen took the cake with their 
winning team of Josh Johnson, Tyler 
Seera, Brian Rossi, and Shane Maxwell.

Being in "Steel Magnolias" was a 
wonderful experience for the whole 
cast. We developed a special bond be- 
cause of our small, all-female cast. Our 
busy six-week practice time was filled 
with special moments of humor. 

One night at practice, Annelle was 
fixing Ouiser' s hair. Ouiser had an ex- 
pecially ugly wig. After practice Mr. 
Belisle made a comment to Kristen, 
"Make sure Ouiser's hair looks better 
after you fix it!" Needless to say, Ouiser 
was given a new, more attractive wig. 

Shelby constantly forgot to bring her 
purse on stage. Her purse contained 
baby pictures of her son, which she 
showed to the other characters. One 
night at practice, Truvy had to ad-lib. 
She said, "Shelby, didn't you stick 
some pictures of that baby of yours in 
the Readers' DigestT' Then the other 
characters oowed and awwed over the

pair of 80's jeans. They are

the first show Truvy found out they

In the first scene, the prop guy lit a 
popper firework for an "explosion." 
The first night of the show his match 
went out twice. The characters on stage 
made up a minute or two of dialogue. 
When it finally went off it made every- 
one jump!

Influencing the Young 

No other experience this year 
has been more fulfilling than 
being involved in the Pals pro- 
gram. To be able to be such a 
big part of a little person's life 
just by taking them out to bowl 
or whatever was a blessing that 
I can't tell in words. It was 
amazing for me because I never 
had just one pal. My official pal 
was awesome ... so are her four 
friends! One day, I was picking 
up my pal for church and sud- 
denly I was surrounded by five 
beautiful little girls, begging me 
to take them to church, too. 
There are kids here in Dayton 
who need love and attention 
more than I think we, as mostly 
middle-class, well-loved and ac-

possibly fathom. It has been an

A most quiet Sunday evening 
turned into one of the most de- 
structive and heart-wrenching in 
Bryan history as the third floor of 
the Administration building 
caught on fire. During the early 
minutes of the fire, some students 
grabbed cameras, others filmed 
the event, while most simply 
stared in disbelief. As the minutes 
turned into hours, the flames 
withered and then suddenly flared 
up several times while many stu- 
dents gathered in Rudd Auditori- 
um for prayer. The fire spread 
quickly across the third floor 
sweeping into the computer lab 
and the Hanna Technology Cen- 
ter. Many students, afraid of the 
implications of the smoke enter- 
ing the dorms, went to various 
homes of faculty and staff mem- 
bers for the night. When students 
returned in the morning, looks of 
awe were obvious on their faces. 
Severe damage to second and 

third floors of the Ad. building was 
feared. However, in spite of all the 
sadness. Dr. Brown rose to the oc- 
casion in Monday's chapel service. 
Instead of focusing on the negative 
aspects of the situation, Dr. Brown 
praised God for the fire and even 
offered a bit of humor on the som- 
ber occasion. News cameras rolled 
and stories were quickly written 

about the difference of Bryan Col- 
lege students. One television sta- 
tions reported that Bryan students 
are "a breed of their own." They 
were right. This college, including 
faculty, staff, and students, turned 
a tragic situation into an opportuni- 
ty to witness to the world.

Laden consists of Chad Brogan. Ben Lavoie, and later Dan Evans, and began in the fall of 1998. 
The name is derived from Matthew 1 1 :28 because the members have a burden to share with others 
the work God has done in their lives. They began with a drum set. two electric guitars, and one 
guitar amp. Determined to make the band work, the guys borrowed equipment when it was 
needed. Practices were held in the band room of Rudd, where Laden drove the music majors out of 
their minds. In the Spring of '99, they were able to relocate to the Tower Theatre. With more room 
and more time to practice, Ben, Chad, and Dan slowly began to collect more of their own 
equipment. They got their first show around the same time playing at a small bar near the Ocoee 
River. "We weren't even old enough to get in. but we played anyway. It was horrible. I think only 
about two people listened." Chad Brogan recalls about the experience. A week later. Laden opened 
for another Bryan Band, Suspicious Larry, at a show in Tower Theatre for about 30 people. When 
the three returned from summer break, they were eager to play another show, but before they were 
able to. Chad broke his hand. He was finally able to rejoin the band in the spring of 2000. They had 
also secured for themselves a bass amp. a 
P.A. system, and a small following of Bryan 
students. With all the setbacks so far (lack 
of equipment and practice space, breaks. 
and broken bones), not one was as dev- 
astating as what happened on February 6. 
Ben and Chad were in the habit of carrying 
their guitars back and forth between their 
room and the Tower for practice, but on 
Saturday night, they decided to leave the 
guitars in the Theatre because they wanted 
to practice again on Sunday night. That 
practice never took place, and Ben, Chad, 
and Dan never played with their equipment 
again. After all appeared lost because of the 
massive fire that consumed the third floor 
and Tower Theatre. Laden thought that 
they would be unable to pay for new equip- 
ment. When the college began to deal with 
insurance agents, they told Chad, 
Ben, and Dan that they would try 
to help out, and a week before 
spring break, they give each mem- 
ber of the band an insurance check. 
Through God's provision, Chad, 
Ben, and Dan were able to afford 
better equipment than what they 
had before even though they didn't 
have enough money left over to buy 
another P.A. system. Laden set up 
shop again in one of the the Bryan 
Village houses and two months af- 
ter the fire got a show in Knoxville 
at the New City Cafe. Through 
many difficulties. Laden has sur- 
vived to go on telling those that will 
listen what God has done for them,

Kissed our gifts goodbye 

Hung our hopes out to dry 

Watched our dreams burn the evening away 

Into the night sky

So easy to lift up your name 

When our hearts feel the absence of pain 

Our lips flow smooth on the sunny days 

But can we praise in the pouring rain

I must confess my mustard seed faith 

My heart betrays the knowledge I've gained 

I spew the answers that build up my pride 

Cut through my front and hear me inside

Visions of purple and silver

pinatas, and a dozen red roses followed 
by a "yes" (congratulations to Nathan- 
iel Goggans and Julie Barfield!) come to 
mind when I recall the Valentine's Ban- 
quet. The freshmen lifted the tempo 
from romance to friendship with 80"s 
music, door prizes, and a video. With 
the help of Jason Erickson, the fresh- 
man officers recorded and edited clips 
of students claiming "first kiss" stories, 
love for their sweethearts (Matt Palmer 

for Amy Jenkins), and the long-lasting 
friendship between husband and wife 
(Aunt Betty). In addition to all this. 
some of the facutly and staff reaffirmed 
their leadership by serving those who 

As a closure on the evening, the ever

everyone with feelings of contentment 
and anticipation for the next freshman- 
sponsored event.

The college's Ambassadors pro- 
gram is very unique to this 
school. Although the ambassa- 
dors give tours of the school and 
often house those visiting the 
campus, they do not get paid for 
it. They are chosen by Mark Cru- 
ver or recommended by others, 
but do all of their work on a 

voluntary basis. This year was 
unique in that a major part of 
the tour was eliminated because 
of the fire. Also, there were more 
visits to the school simply be- 
cause of curiosity. The ambassa- 
dors faced a unique challenge 
and definitely rose to the occa- 
sion, bv Jill Womack

70 Midnight Breakfast 


When final exam week approaches or 
Day of Prayer rolls around, many stu- 
dents seek late-night nourishment from 
the eating establishment we know as 
Argo's. This nocturnal fiesta is known 
as Midnight Breakfast. While waiting 
for the gates to open, students partici- 
pate in many activities to pass the time. 
Some students play card games, others 
simply talk with their friends, while 
some die-hard students study for the 
following day's classes. When the gates 
do open, sleep-deprived students enter 
and choose from the wide array of 
foods. The spread lovingly prepared by 

Argo's cooks includes everything from 
bacon to apple-sticks and is often re- 
vered as one of the best meals of the 
year. "It was pretty good considering 
this is the only breakfast Fve been to 
this year," commented Alicia McElrath 
on the February 1 5th event. When the 
meal has been completed and the con- 
versation is finished, students return to 
their rooms and further deprive them- 
selves of sleep because of the high level 
of sugar ingested while there. It's just 
another "wired" evening at Bryan Col-

76 Day of Prayer 

Day of Prayer 

For some it meant time in the 
grassy bowl; for others, time on 
the football field; for still some 
others, it meant driving in the 
car. But for the whole campus, it 
was a day spent in prayer. It was 
a day to be still and know God. 
An all night vigil and midnight 
breakfast started off the day of 
prayer. After a day to sleep in, 
the entire campus gathered in 
Rudd for a time of reflection and 
group prayer. The afternoon was 

spent on our own, without any- 
thing to do but spend time and 
rest in God's arms and love. 
Then some of us grabbed our 
blankets and bundled up to par- 
ticipate in Communion that 
night in the grassy bowl. It was a 
day for us as a campus to lay 
aside schoolwork and to enjoy 
God's love and peace.

The first Bryan College bike

thus far. They were invited to 
the Nationals this year in Atlan- 
ta for the first time. During the 
first race in which they compet- 
ed in Cleveland, TN. Matt's seat 
broke and he had to race the last 
eight miles without a seat. He 
had been in 2nd place, but the 
difficulty moved him back to 5th 
place. They competed in three 
other races during the first se- 
mester before the National com- 
petition. Only Matt, Miles, and 
Shane raced in the "B" class 
with the top competitors, placing 
9th, 21st, and 42nd respectively. 
Then there were five races dur- 
ing the second semester. Miles 

"'>i.. «. » ">■ 

also rode in a 24-hour race with 
some friends back home in Utah 
over Fall Break. The major prob- 
lem for the team is a lack of 
funding. Each member is finan- 
cially responsible for his own 
equipment, including jerseys 
sporting the college's name. 
Some money comes from SGA. 
but the team has been unable to 
secure any other sponsorship 
from the college. This can get 
expensive for the individuals 
when they travel to competitions 
or have their bikes stolen, like 
two members did this year. But 
they continue to race, for the 
love of the sport and thanks to 
their outside sponsors.

Chorale & 

Chamber Singers is one of the 
most fun, exciting, and rewar- 
ding ministries offered at Bryan 
College. This group is made up 
of a smaller number of Charale 
members and does more travel- 
ling throughout the year. We 
usually sing about twelve con- 
certs in surrounding area chur- 
ches, not to mention extra 
Christmas concerts. Spring 
Tour, recording albums, and 
sometimes Easter responsibili- 
ties. Every two years, we get the 
privilege of touring and singing 
in the Bahamas as well. 

As a group, we get to know 

each other and form bonds that 
are not easily broken. There's 
something exciting about taking 
a diverse group of individuals, 
putting them together to sing as 
one voice, and seeing how God 
uses their music to minister to 
His children and those who 
don't yet know Him. In fact, 
that's the ministry of the Cham- 
ber Singers in a nutshell. WE are 
the Singers of the Song God has 
put within His own. What a 
blessing and privilege to serve 
our Father in this way!

The 1999-2000 school year 
was an exciting one for the Bry- 
an College Worldview Team. 
However, this year was not all 
work and no play for the World- 
view Team - each trip brought 
new opportunities for fun. From 
Oleg Matsko's Ukranian jokes to 
John Stonestreet's list of slip- 
ups, the team had more than its 
fair share of laughter along the 
way. The team brought its pres- 
entation to places as far away as 
Florida and as near as Chatta- 
nooga, sharing with over 2000 
students during the course of the 
year. The presentation has 
grown and changed (for the bet- 
ter) since its conception a few 
years ago. 

One of the biggest changes 
that this school year brought was 
the leadership of John Stones- 
treet. Since its conception, the 
team has been led and accompa- 
nied by Dr. Bill Brown. This 
year, John Stonestreet took over 
as leader of the Worldview 
Team. John was a member of the 
very first Worldview Team of 
1995-1996, which gives him a 
different perspective on the 
team and what its purpose 

should be. Another advantage of 
having a new leader is a fresh 
look at the presentation as a 

The presentation, which inclu- 
des examples from movies, tele- 
vision shows, radio, and maga- 
zines, is geared towards helping 
high school students and their 
parents understand what it 
means to choose and live with 
the worldview of their choice. 
The most important part of the 
presentation is the rough over- 
view of what the students at Bry- 
an College learn in Biblical 
Worldview class their freshman 
year. This enables the audience 
to see the weaknesses of the oth- 
er views while giving a clear pic- 
ture of how Christianity answers 
life's ultimate questions in a way 
that the other worldviews. even 
other theistic worldviews, can- 
not. All in all. this year was full 
of growth and change for this 
ministry. As they look forward 
to a new year with new mem- 
bers, they look for more oppor- 
tunities to see this life-changing 
ministry grow and prosper.

Break for 
Change: Mexico 

The participants of Break for 
Change strongly desire to spend 
their spring break influencing 
others. This ministry offers 
many different avenues and lo- 
cations for students to be able to 
do that. Some of the methods 
they used for ministry included 
miming, leading worship servi- 
ces, doing construction work, 
street evangelism, helping in 

churches, and inner-city minis- 
try. This year's locations includ- 
ed Eleuthra, Mexico, Italy, 
Pennsylvania, and Mississippi. 
There were many awesome tes- 
timonies about those who were 
saved or who were receptive to 
the gospel. This is an awesome 
opportunity to reach out to those 
who might not otherwise be

The Fifty -Year-Old Tradition Gets a Face-Lift 

The fall of 1999 started out 
normal for the Bible Educa- 
tion Ministry (BEM). but af- 
ter the first week in the 
schools it encountered some 
opposition. So. to appease 
everyone it was called off for a 
week at the county schools. 
After two weeks all was well 
again and BEM continued in 
the Classes. Dayton City 
schools then decided that it 
could not have BEM because 
of liability issues. So. a new 
program was established to 
correlate with the character 
education already going on in 
the area schools. 

This new program is called 
Character and Relational Ed- 
ucation (CARE). Bryan stu- 
dents still go in to the class- 
rooms on Thursdays and 
teach a lesson. But now they 
teach a monthly character 
trait and they teach about a 
Bible character who em- 
phasizes that trait. 

PCI purchased new charac- 

ter education materials so 
that the CARE teachers 
would not have to compose 
the lessons on their own. but 
could get ideas, stories, and 
activities from the character 
education materials. Each 
month a list is posted of the 
Bible characters who demon- 
strate the trait and a list of 
materials for that particular 

The program has changed 
in name and in the materials 
used, but we are still reaching 
area students with God"s 
Word. Everyone is thankful 
that this program was created, 
so the kids can still learn 
about our Savior and Lord. A 
huge thanks to all of the 
CARE teachers who didn't 
give up and who worked so 
diligently to create lessons for 
this new part of a wonderful

Argo's saw its finest group of people 
on the night of this important upper- 
classmen banquet. We filed onto the 
buses and enjoyed six different movies 
on the way to Knoxville, our first stop. 
Our meal was at the Southern Ballroom 
and consisted of chicken, ham, and 
shrimp, along with sides, fruit, and 
freshly baked rolls. After everyone had 
a chance to eat their food, we all needed 
to change into casual clothes. Because 
of a change of plans, the girls changed 
in the ballroom after all of the guys 
headed for the buses, where they 
changed. Then we all crowded on the 
buses again to head for The Track, a 
recreation center in Pigeon Forge. The 

activities there included putt-putt golf, 
laser tag, go-carts with a three-story 
track, arcade games, bumper boats, and 
even bungee jumping. We stayed there 
until the wee hours of the morning, 
when we loaded the buses again to re-

This Spring, Rudd Auditorium was 
transformed into a Japanese courtyard. 
The Japanese decorations, props, dyed 
hair, and heavily made up faces all con- 
tributed to the setting of The Mikado, a 
Gilbert and Sullivan musical produced 
in a joint effort of the Hilltop Players 
and the Bryan College Music Depart- 
ment. The plot was a very complex love 
story. Nanki-Poo and Yum-Yum were 
in love and wanted to get married, but 
Yum-Yum was supposed her guardian, 
Koko, the executioner of the town who 
had never actually executed anyone. He 
gets word from the Mikado that he 

must kill someone or his position will 
be removed. So, when he sees Nanki- 
Poo attempting suicide because of his 
forbidden love, he makes a deal to let 
him marry Yum-Yum for a month be- 
fore being executed. Well, as we find 
out. Nanki-Poo is the Mikado's son 
who is supposed to marry Katisha. 
Well, Koko gets in trouble when the 
Mikado finds out that he "killed" his 
son (whom he actually set free) and has 
to marry Katisha to convince Nanki- 
Poo to come to the rescue. It is a very

94 Caravan 


Caravan: the word strikes fear 
into the hearts of Bryan College 
students! Long lines at Argo's, 
people we don't know staying in 
our rooms, and strangers ran- 
domly wandering around cam- 
pus, looking rather lost. Howev- 
er, for all the inconveniences 
Caravan presents to current Bry- 
an students, one must think of 
the many advantages the experi- 
ence gives prospective Bryan stu- 
dents. One of the things that sets 
Bryan apart is the students that 

come here. For many high school 
students, the deciding factor in 
choosing a college is student life. 
Bryan students have a reputation 
of being friendly, accepting, and 
genuinely caring about those 
who visit here. Caravan provides 
potential students with a glimpse 
into the unique student life that 
sets Bryan apart and gives them

Sponsor Speaks 

"There was a great deal of participa- 
tion this year in intramurals. Some of 
the larger competitions included vol- 
leyball, flag football and basketball. 
There were also additions to the regu- 
lar sports to include frisbee golf and 
badminton tournaments. There was a 
mixture of class competition and sign- 
ups but all earned points for their re- 
spective classes through placement in 
the tournaments."

Senior Trip 

The senior trip consisted of stops at two 
locations. It began in Big Ridge, Ten- 
nessee, where the group stayed in ca- 
bins from Friday night until Sunday 
morning. They enjoyed activities such 
as volleyball, softball, hiking, tennis, 
and frisbee golf. Sunday was spent trav- 
elling to Charleston. South Carolina, 
where they spent the rest of their trip. 
Each day, something new was offered. 

The options were going to the beach 
with sub sandwiches and chips for 
lunch, a harbor tour, a carriage ride, a 
tour of the U.S.S. Yorktown, and a trip 
to Frankie's, a recreation center with 
pizza for lunch. Overall, it was a fun 
and relaxing time for many who went 
on this all-important senior getaway.

The Commoner 

"Whew! It's finally done!" These 
were the words that the staff ex- 
claimed at the end of the week 
after graduation. This year was 
unique to all other years for 
many reasons. We had a new 
advisor, Mr. Bud Schatz, who is 
new to the school as a professor 
of Public Relations as well. We 
also changed printing com- 
panies, so we had a lot of new 
software, techniques, and capa- 
bilities to learn. We also had a 
huge story to cover that affected 
the entire Bryan family, on- 
campus and extended. There 
was so much we wanted to do, 
but with a small staff and so 
many adjustments to make, we 
may not have reached our goal. 

We have really enjoyed working 
on this book and truly hope you 
enjoy it. The many Wednesday 
night work sessions we had, the 
hours some of us spent after 
most others were gone, the in- 
sane captions we composed at 
two in the morning . . . but it was 
all worth it. Perhaps we got a 
slow start and have not lived up 
to our own expectations, but per- 
haps we have done our work to 
the glory of God. Any com- 
plaints about the book should 
come to us, but any praise 
should go to the author of order 
and creativity. Our work is for

"It was perfect weather for Gradua- 
tion." commented Resident Director 
Myra Goza. With the audience facing 
the newly opened Student Life Center 
and the stage facing the newly under 
construction Administration building, 
everything really did seem to be work- 
ing together for good. There were 1 1 1 
graduates to receive diplomas, 53 of 
which received B.A. degrees, and the 
remaining 58 receiving B.S. degrees. 

There were over 1,000 people in at- 

tendance, many of them family and 
friends of graduates. The loudest ap- 
plause came after Tim Shetter's name 
was called. In his many years at Bryan, 
Tim has made many friends from dif- 
ferent classes. Heather Hammond's 
family released red and yellow balloons 
when her name was called. Every fan 
club had a different way of expressing 
it, but they were all very proud of that 
special graduate on this special day.

Ann Burwick Memorial 

How can I put into words 
what Ann Burwick meant to me? 
It is impossible, yet I will try to 
convey to you through the next 
few paragraphs what this incred- 
ible woman meant in my life and 
relationship with God. May He 
use my words to speak to your 

I didn't want to see her. I did- 
n't have any problems. I'd for- 
given those who had hurt me, 
God had forgiven me — there 
was NOTHING to talk about. 
My mom made me go. I'm big- 
ger than she is! Why did I obey 
her? Why should I tell some 
stranger about my problems? I 
don't HAVE any problems! Re- 
ally! Only wimps need coun- 
selors, and I was NOT a wimp, 
or so I thought. Ann Burwick 
was tall with dark red hair, and 
had the kindest eyes I'd ever 
seen. No matter how blunt I got 
with her, she was never insulted 
or shocked. I'd sit on her couch 
in her Birmingham office and 
cry. The Kleenex box was my 
faithful sidekick. My tears didn't 
embarrass her or make her nerv- 
ous. She'd just wait until I could 
speak again and then she'd con- 
tinue to listen to me. I kept on 
expecting her to reject me be- 
cause of all the things that had 
happened in my life, yet she nev- 
er did. 

One of my favorite things 
about Ann was that she was con- 

sistently blunt and honest with 
me. She saw through my at- 
tempts to take the blame for oth- 
ers' wrong actions, and she cal- 
led me on it in a way that didn't 
hurt my feelings. Being the youn- 
gest of three and a people- 
pleaser. I was touched by her 
ability to not make me feel like 
dirt for doing something wrong. 
What a blessing she was in my 
life! She was a godly mother- 
figure to me, and a faithful 
friend. She had such faith that 
God would one day turn my 
pain and sorrow into a blessing, 
she believed in me and unfailing- 
ly pointed me to His abundant 
truth. I am extremely blessed to 
have known Ann Burwick, one 
of His instruments. I miss her 
still, and I feel a little lost some- 
times without her down here. I 
look forward to the day when I 
can see her smile once again. 

I memorized the words to the 
hymn "Be Still, My Soul!" a few 
years ago and the third verse be- 
low has encouraged me many 
times during the past few 
months. "Be still, my soul! 
Though dearest friends depart 
and all is darkened in the vale of 
tears. Then shalt thou better 
know His love. His heart who 
comes to soothe thy sorrows and 
they fears. Be still, my soul! Thy 
Jesus can repay from His own 
fullness all He takes away."

This is how most Bryan students remember Mrs. 
Burwick. She was a counselor and helped her 
husband with women's basketball.

132 Open Dorm 


Open Dorm started as al- 
ways, with one dorm each 
weekend (or less) open and 
promoting a certain theme. 
However, good conduct and 
the lack of meeting places af- 
ter the fire led to a change in 
unofficial policy. All the 
dorms were open each Friday 
night from 9:00-12:30. There 
were differing views on this 
adjustment. Many liked it, be- 
cause there were then many 
options for places to go and 
play games or watch movies. 
However, some did not like it 
because it was harder to find 

their friends and made open 
dorm less special. If all the 
dorms are open during that 
time, and no one is doing any- 
thing really special, it be- 
comes as boring as going oth- 
er places. Those for the 
change argue that this simply 
gives us more options and 
calls on our own creativity in- 
stead of being catered to by 
others. Even though there is a 
split of opinions on the mat- 
ter, SDO will continue to con- 
template the best option for 
this dorm privilege.

Working Students 

All too often the working students of 
Bryan College are overlooked. There 
are some students on this campus who 
work anywhere from 25 to 40 hours a 
week, go to school an average of 1 7 
hours a week and still maintain a 3.5 
GPA. Although the working students 
at Bryan spread themselves pretty 
thin, they make time to participate in 
Bryan activities like games and Bible 
studies. Jobs in which students partic- 
ipate range from geriatric nurses, to 
fast food workers to pharmacy techni- 
cians. "We have to work in order to 
pay the bills. I don't mind it. It feels 

good to get my paycheck and know 
that I am paying for my own educa- 
tion," said one working Bryan College 
student. "It's somewhat overwhelm- 
ing sometimes. I have to make sure 
that I manage my time well, but I'm 
sure that knowing how to work and 
support myself will pay off in the long- 
run," commented one full-time work- 
er and student. To the working stu- 
dents of Bryan College, we are proud 
of you and commend you for your 
constant dedication and hard work.

144 Siblings 



Family plays an important 
role at Bryan College. Many 
students hear about Bryan 
through parents, aunts, un- 
cles, siblings, or grandparents 
who attended. There have al- 
ways been a good number of 
younger siblings joining their 
older brothers and sisters as 
students. Older siblings often 
serve to help make the transi- 
tion to Bryan easier, as well as 
providing support and friend- 

ship through all sorts of ex- 
periences. This year at Bryan, 
there were eleven pairs of sis- 
ters, five pairs of brothers, 
and eight brother/sister duos. 
As everyone knows, we are all 
brothers and sisters in Christ. 
However, this year, the Com- 
moner has chosen to highlight 
the special familial relation-

Dr. Beth 

Dr. Beth Impson came to Bryan because it 
was a place that met both her and her 
husband's needs. She has previously taught 
at the University of Kansas, SW Missouri 
State, Tabor College, and Belhaven. Out- 
side of school, she enjoys reading world 
article reviews and working on the book she 
is writing. She is a fanatic for KU men's 
basketball. She is originally from Texas, but 
she feels like home is Lawrence, Kansas, 
where she grew up. Her favorite thing about 
teaching is getting to know, work with, and 
influence students. She least likes grading 
the essays at the end of the semester. When 
she was young, she dreamed of being a 
fiction writer. So, why did she decide to 
teach? First of all, necessity. Secondly, a 
concern that Christians couldn't articulate 
Christian beliefs.

Dr. Ernie 

Dr. Ernie Ricketts is from Day- 
ton and obviously loves this part 
of the country. But he also enjoys 
anything Greek, like the lan- 
guage, the food, the beauty of the 
land. He began teaching because 
he enjoys studying, researching, 
and sharing what he learns. He 
specifically teaches Greek be- 
cause it is helpful for those who 
want to go into the ministry, and 
a pastor suggested it to him. He 
also has some funny stories to 
tell. When he was in junior high, 
he took guitar lessons from his 

pastor. One day, the pastor asked 
him to play in church. He told 
young Ricketts to play "Crying in 
the Chapel" by Elvis Presley, not 
knowing what it was about. I'm 
sure he never heard the end of 
that one! He also used to play in a 
rock band in high school. He 
played the guitar and his special- 
ty was Boston's "More Than a 
Feeling." Perhaps this is one tal- 
ent that should come out into the

Dr. Stephanie 

She came to Bryan because she felt that the 
environment would be one where she could 
grow spiritually. She was just trying to survive 
in the secular field, but here she can integrate 
faith and science. She taught for one and a half 
years at James Madison University. She bikes, 
plays the cello, enjoys music of all kinds. Her 
most interesting student would be one with 
many questions, but one who can make con- 
nections without her help and could even chal- 
lenge her while being humble. She lived in 
Montreal, Canada for about eight months 
studying virology. She had trouble with the 
language barrier, because they use both Eng- 
lish and French. She left to study the cello, but 
developed tendonitis, so she returned to grad. 
school at the University of Maryland. Her 
favorite thing about teaching is seeing the 
lightbulb go on when students understand 
what she is teaching. She loves to spark an 
interest in apathetic students and get them 

152 Dk Hartz 

Dr. Robert 

Since Dr. Simpson has been 
teaching at this school for 19 
years, it is more important 
how his life has been while 
here than what brought him 
here so many years ago. He 
said that Bryan has definitely 
affected his spiritual walk, 
especially in the things he has 
learned from Dr. Bill Brown 
and the wonderful testimony 
of encouragement from facul- 

ty and students. In light of the 
college-wide response to the 
fire in the Administration 
building. Simpson said. "It 
has confirmed that we really 
are a family; from the Presi- 
dent to students to faculty to 
maintenance workers." What 
a wonderful attitude to have 
considering that his office was 
on the third floor!

Your voice and when You 
called him to China to teach 
for a year, he followed: thus 
Deuteronomy 31:8 became 
our strength. We have grown 
in Your love as a result of 
Joshua's love for You. Thank 
you for giving us Joshua! 

Joshua's Mom, Dad. 
and Jason

We may feel that our college world has been 
turned upside-down at this point. We have lost 
a lot. The devastating fire that ravaged our 
Administration building this winter seems to 
leave its lasting mark on our entire year. And 
yet how quickly we have forgotten last Fall. 
With the arrival of the new Freshman 
class and the fresh outlook 
brought to this school year 
we were on fire! We 
were so in love 
with our Jesus 
and fully desired 
to give Him the 
glory. We were 
ready to do anything 
and go anywhere that 
He asked us to do c 
go. We must not lose 
that fire. That is the fire 
that is everlasting and 
what it destroys will not be 
rebuilt. The Yearbook staff 
had chosen the theme 
"Rekindle the Fire" for this 
year's book because of the awe- 
some power of the Christian tes- 
timony. However, in light of the 
minor incident atop this hill later 
this year, we altered our theme. Not 
only do we need to stand in the face of 
this "adversity," but we also need to 
regain that fire for our Lord once again. 
Then we can truly say "We're Still On 

Closing 175 

Whether we live our Christian lives in service, or whether God has chosen us to he leaders, ive know that He 
is constantly at work in our lives. Through all the tragedy and triumph of this year, we seek first to glorify 
Him. Is it a coincidence that the book of Psalms immediately follows Job? "Let the words of my mouth and the 
meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, Lord, my strength and my Redeemer" (Psalm 19:14). 

From Among the Ashes 

We stand among the now ancient ashes 
In awe of what has now passed us 
Wondering what this new day will bring 
Wondering if we'll ever be able to sing 
The way we used to sing praises to our King 

With darkness still upon us, we stopped 
In hopes that the hand that guides 
The sparrow will draw us near 
Ever nearer, that we will see Him here 
That in His embrace, all will be clear 

We stand looking through a glass darkly 

Unable to see the path before us 

We take the first steps to normality 

Hoping to someday somehow encounter clarity 

While straining our eyes to depend on God's charity 

We stand among the now ancient ashes 

In awe of what has now passed us 

Astounded at what this new day will bring 

While lifting up a new song to our King 

While holding on to the promise of an angel's wing 

— Antonia Irevon Celius
