life. Our sophomore class began this year with 
enthusiasm and confidence as they put one year 
behind them. The infamous junior class took 
the challenge of planning Junior/Senior and still 
kept up with their usual "junior socials." The 
seniors charged ahead with Graduation close in 
sight. Each class is unique and offers some- 
thing rare to the campus. As the years pass b\ 
each class will change and be even more unique 

With all of the changes of this year, it 
still important to remember our Lion root; 
Always be mindful of those who came be: 
us and laid the road. Know also that eacl 
student adds a piece to the road. Contini 
learn from the past as you look to the future. 


With the fire of 2000, the Ironside Memorial Library suffered 
major damage that would in the end be a blessing in disguise. Most 
of the books shelved on the third floor were completely ruined and 
the books of the lower floors endured incredible water and smoke 
damage. The library staff stood and watched as the flames burned, 
saddened and discouraged by the damage, yet not defeated. As soon 
as clearance came from the firemen, the staff was in the building 
sifting through the ashes and soot. As they salvaged what was not 
completely destroyed, the staff began making plans for the future. 

The future would hold a summer of major construction and 
rebuilding for the library. With an entire building for the library alone, 
the staff had major work to do. They spent hours ordering new books 
and replacing the old ones. The staff had more in mind than just 
books for 'ol Ironside. The building has two small conference rooms, 
a large sitting area with tables, chairs and couches, a computer lab, a 
snack room, and many other new amenities. 

Although the library has gone under many changes in the past 
year, there is one thing that has remained the same - the staff. The 
same friendly faces are there to greet students. The staff helps out in 
anyway possible. From talking about research to talking about the 
weather, the staff is always there to listen. Students are not the only 
ones to benefit from the helpfulness of the library staff. Professors can 
also benefit from their resourcefulness and knowledge. The staff 
helps professors with class resources as well as technical support. 



This year's Commoner is 

dedicated to the staff of 

Ironside Memorial Library 

for their hard work, long 

hours, servant attitudes and 

amazing abilities to make a 

difference in the lives of 

those around them. 




When freshmen arrive on campus they are a little 
nervous, a little excited and usually not very pre- 
pared for the activities that are about to take place. 
The first week of school involves Bryan College 
throwing out the welcome mat and freshmen and 
transfer students running in at various speeds. Wel- 
come Week is a time for the new to meet with the 
old and get the true feeling of Bryan student life. 
There are games, devotionals, seminars, and 
small groups. But most of all there are new friend- 
ships made and old ones regained. 

Current students volunteer to help move new 
students into their dorms. 

Robert Papenfuss and David Dahlke direct traffic.

Long lines and registration, can we just 
say "fun, fun, fun?"

leadership retreat 

This year's Student Leadership Conferences were 
both exciting and purposeful. We started the year off in 
August with the theme of "The New Bryan College," em- 
phasizing the newness of campus facilities and the impact 
we as student leaders could have on campus. The retreat, 
which focused on renewing an attitude of service for student 
leaders, opened up with a dinner at Dr. Brown's house and 
concluded with an all-day service project of moving count- 
less numbers of books from storage into the not-yet-com- 
pleted library. It was a great time of catching up with friends 
and getting ready for the year that lay ahead. 

The conference in January was a time of student 
leaders meeting with members of administration to hear the 
staff's thoughts on student issues and to provide student 
feedback to staff questions. The interaction was valuable 
both in building student/administration relationships and in 
allowing the students to glean leadership wisdom from the 
administration. Dr. Jeff Myers also conducted two sessions 
of study of the book of Nehemiah. focusing on how Nehemiah 
as a leader was able to build and maintain a vision in the 
midst of opposition. For those involved, it was a good time 
of refocusing and preparing for the second half of the school

all-college picnic 

The picnic took place on a sunny afternoon on Au- 
gust 25 lh at Chester Frost Park. The event started out with 
games consisting of "The War," a chicken fight where the 
goal was to break the egg on the opponent's forehead, a 
mattress relay race, and Tug of War. The activities seemed a 
success as cheering or direct participation took place by most 
of the students. After the games students took a break and 
enjoyed delicious food provided by Pioneer Food Service. 

The crowd watches in disbelief as the freshmen ladies 

defeat the senior men.

Spirit Week is always an exciting time for stu- 
dents as they get a chance to express themselves 
by dressing unusually. Spirit Week 200i consisted 
of Country Western, Celebrity, Class Color, Future, 
and Spirit Day. 

Not all students went along with these themes, 
however. A group of students decided to celebrate 
in their own way with their own themes such as "False 
Religion Day" and "Goth Day!' 

The way the students chose to celebrate this 
day varied, however, all had one purpose: to show 
the love and support of the Bryan Lions.

Spirit Week \ % 

Although Homecoming is a typical, annual celebration on the hill, October 5-7, 2001 was anything but typical. 
The week prior consisted of Spirit days, a pep rally sponsored by the BC Cheerleaders, and a banquet hosted by the 
sophomore class. Saturday was quite a finale for the campus. 

Blustery and unusually cold, the weekend brought much excitement. As Alumni gathered from around the 
globe to reminisce and fellowship, current students prepared for the fun. Saturday centers around a men's soccer game 
and half time festivities, but this year things got off to a late start. Due to vehicle trouble the opposing team caused the 

kickoff time to be pushed back

mittee entertained Alumni,

made their way to the field in 

'good 'ol boy' Southern style pickup trucks provided by Adam Drake and IV Smith. Although the crowd was sparse 
and the game had still not begun, the show had to go on. Alumni, faculty and students cheered as the court candidly 
walked to find their places on the field. 2000-01 Homecoming Queen. Christina Senter was on hand to crown this 
year's senior royalty, Winnie Buck and Adam Parker. 

The opposing men's soccer team finally arrived and the BC Lions took to the field. The game is not just a sport 
on this fall Saturday. The game is a time to see old faces and make a few new friends. Amidst the crowd, tears of joy 
and cries of laughter are often heard throughout the game. Despite the many fans and the cheers of the Homecoming 
crowd, the BC Lions fell to the opposing team for a 0-2 loss. The Lions may have lost that Saturday, but the spirit of 
the Lion was rekindled that weekend and will live on forever.

senior chapel 

Going against the traditional senior chapel presentations, this 
year's senior class came up with something more meaningful. 
Led by a committee class members participated in skits and 
dialogue characterizing the senior class through the years. 
Some included skits making fun of boys, the differences in 
classes and chapel between senior and freshman year and also 
several inside jokes. A video followed the performances. The 
video captured students giving testimonials and thanks to profes- 
sors and staff they have been impacted by since being at Bryan. 
After this sincere display of appreciation the senior class, faculty 
and staff gathered on the stage for a time of prayer. Each 
president of this senior class offered a prayer for the faculty and 
staff. As the faculty continue in their ministry here at Bryan the 
seniors will move on to other things. This chapel marked a 
turning point for senior chapels and will hopefully pave the way 
for many more to come. 

Top: After chapel many seniors and faculty ex- 
pressed their appreciation for one another with hugs 
and farewells. Senior Jessica Saxon hugs her 
advisor and Business professor, Dr. Jeff Bruehl.

Senior Trip 

Thirty-three gals and forty-five women plus two Lestmann's took off on Friday, April 
26th and headed south to the beautiful beaches of Destin/Fort Walton, Florida. The 
week was full of fun in the sun, long walks on the beach and hours of making memories 
with lifelong friends. One night during the week the senior class gathered to share one 
last meal together at the Hog's Breath Saloon and Restaurant. 

Above: Seniors gather around to eat a few 
chicken fingers and sandwiches before hitting the

To Donnie and Ronnie (my Eskimo friends), I leave with you the tradition of watching the movie. White Christmas, every December, even if it doesn't snow and the tradition of cheering on 
SVCA girls at NACA. Thank you for all your encouragement and support! Adam: I leave you with a bigger truck! I leave with you the courage to try new foods and exciting new things. 
Also a huge hug and thank you from me for your constant friendship! Chasity: I leave you with the memories of late night runs to Taco Bell in the rain, good tear-jerking songs, and talks that 
I will never forget. Thank you for so many good times; wish there were time for more! 1 love you! Sarah Elizabeth: I leave with you more time to do things for yourself, because you do so 
much for so many others. Also I leave a lifetime supply of encouragement notes- Thanks for all the ones you sent me! I leave Brook the desire to lead the team to many victories. To 
Cassidy I leave the title of "Captain," you will always be "C" to me! To Faith I leave a big "thank you" for all the talks and times you made me laugh. To Alissa (and Lucas) I hope for you two 
a love that lasts a lifetime! To Laura, my caravaner, pepper partner, roommate on trips, and dear friend: I leave you a peaceful night's sleep with no kicking, shoving, or cuddling. Also, I 
leave to you with all my education books and the patience to deal with another Aaron. To the entire Volleyball team I leave you all the drive to bring home some trophies. To Coach I hope 
for you a happy marriage and a successful season next year. To my fellow education major friends, 1 pray that you take with you the wisdom passed on to us by many professors and the 
ability to pass it on to our students. Good luck and may God Bless you in all your future endeavors. No matter where God leads you may you never forget Bryan College and all that you 
learn in class and out. To Michelle, I leave with you a television that has the WB station so that you never miss 7 ,h Heaven. Also, I hope for you and eternity of good students as you begin to 
touch so many lives with your career. Erin, I hope for you the courage to follow your dreams wherever they may take you (Seattle). And I leave with you an apology for not spending enough 
time with you when I had the chance. Let's not make that the characteristic for the years to come. Thank you for your devoted friendship! To Michael, Byron, Steven, Sarah Kate, and Joie 
I leave you with the memories of when our friendships were first formed four years ago. Over the years we have grown and changed a lot. but one thing has remained the same our strong 
friendship. I hope for us the ability to remember all the good times and leave the bad times behind. My prayer for us is that we have patience, love, strength, courage, and perseverance to 
make this time we have shared becomes something that lasts a lifetime. May we never forget to send Birthday and Christmas cards and may we each know that the others are just a phone 
call away. 1 love you and I will miss you all. May God be the glue that keeps our hearts bonded together forever. To Aaron, my husband, my buddy, my babe, my very best friend, my 
confidant, my "Mr. Fuzzy Bear", my knight in shining armor, and my "Scraunie." Thank you so much for the past 8 years of love and for the many more to come. I could not think of anyone 
else I would rather share it with. I love you! 

I, Matthew S. Clark, being of sound mind and body, leave the following items to my fellow Bryan Lions: Isaac Antanaitis: I'm leaving you my spot in Tips for Tyler so you can let everyone

and a couple of pairs of blue jeans that I want you to have. I hope you like them! Miles Ericson: Tickets to Our Lady Peace so you wont have to sneak in the back next time, and while I'm

time. Steve Myers: A high five, a pat on the back and a ton of respect. Matt Palmer: Remember my fish, OFB? He's all yours! Adam Parker: a lifetime supply of contact lens cleaning fluid.

cola, and all the gray .85 guitar picks that I've been stealing out of your room. Sarah Revell: A suitable male companion for Little Baby Richard. I'm keeping that ridiculous sign you made 
though! Mike Sheddan: My Johnny Cash poster. Cash= real country, my friend. Ivey Smith: I'm leaving you with the $1,000 I owe you for all the rides you gave me back to my house. 
Also I want you to have my very favorite baha. Treat it good, OK? Chad Snavely: The ability to sleep in, and be lazy and unproductive for just a few minutes. I wanted to leave you 
something coffee related, but I think you've pretty much got all your bases covered there Jennifer Wilson: I'm leaving you with the peace of mind and the ability to move on concerning 
how much better I am than you at bowling. Once I'm gone, hopefully your soul can find rest. Also, I'm leaving you the rest of the series of "Demented-Looking Animal Birthday Cards".

Matt Palmer 

Remember when- Rebecca Walker stuck her hands in Tyler's mashed potatoes. . .we went train-hopping my fish that mysteriously died. If you know who did it, tell 
me.-.when IV went off the Soddy rope swing and got "hurt." Mr. T's when that alarm went off in chapel when the chapel seats got unscrewed somebody relocated 
Bruce's office Midnight Carolers got paintballed by Uncle Hutchy Amy Jenkins rejected me for a whole year before she finally admitted she was madly in love with 
me Matt, Tyler, Miles, Dave, and Crowe all got engaged My sister rocked hard at Varsity Soccer this year. .1 sat on the bench for Varsity Soccer this year . .we got 
Rebecca to drink a carton of sour milk. Ben Home fell in the lunch room, and his tray spilled on the Argo's decorations for an upcoming banquet . Gobbles. . Ledbetter, 
Jarvis, Mitchell, and all the others we lost Spring Break last year (at the beach) Snow Skiing last year at Snowshoe . Mike Veloz flying off the snow-sled behind IV's 
truck, and busting his ribs so bad he had to go to the hospital. . I fell off a motorcycle. I fell off Dave's car (while he was driving). . our Class beat the seniors last year in 
Intramural Football Tyler fell on his face at last year's talent show. . Kent Suter's "Magic Tricks" and "Gospel Preaching" you came here, and there was nothing but a 
fresh start with friendly people who didn't yet know you. This has been an incredible place to laugh, cry, pull pranks, learn, and grow. I value every person and every 
instance I have taken from Bryan College. Coming here has made all the difference in my life, and I thank God for each of you who have impacted me in even the 
smallest way. Never again will we have so many people wanting to commune with us and pray for us out of a personal and earnest love. To all upcoming classes at 
Bryan . I leave the hope of such funny events, good and bad times, and friends that can challenge you to better understand yourself, truly live each day, and help you 
understand what it means to seek after Jesus. 

I Adam Parker, upon completing my time here at Bryan College, do leave the following to those who have made my life here incredible: First, to Jordan Musselman , the 
greatest friend a man could ever have, where should I start? I leave you a lifetime of shared memories of playing the drums, riding bikes, wiffle ball, basketball at all times 
of the day and in all weather conditions, riding the bus and carpool for hours on end (while driving everyone crazy with the drums!), the glory days of Trinity (324!) and 
our years on 4* Short. Also, to make your life complete, I leave you a never-ending supply of Sunkist, Twinkies, and Sean Connery; a $4 million dollar weight training 
facility in your backyard; a growing love of coffee; a Rodeo fitted with every possible accessory you can dream of; the ability to study for 10 minutes for a Hartzell test and 
ace it every time; and a lifetime of holidays spent together. 1-2-3 family! Thanks for all the memories made, and the many more yet to come. You're the best, man. To 
Clinton Donouqh - I leave a car that you never have to worry about; a different roommate from now on, plenty of late night talks about whatever; and appreciation of 
three and a half years together. To Aaron Strode - I will leave above all the ability to always pursue your dreams and make them reality, to live a life completely void of 
mediocrity, I leave the presidency of an organization where you can follow the 10-70-20 rule whenever you want to; patience with people who don't do what you want 
them to; and the hope that one day you will finally make Laura's reams come true. Don't forget, you said I could stay In the Lincoln Bedroom. To Eric Nidiffer - I must first 
leave three knocks on the pipe, followed by a BAM-BAM. all taking place in a time "back when was OK." Eric, the one semester we roomed together was one I will 
never forget. Thanks for all the laughs and all the conversations when 1 fell asleep while you were still talking. If I could, I would leave you all I have, because maybe then it 
would pay you back for all the things you gave me and would never let me pay you back for. But since you would never take it all, I leave you better luck at setting me up, 
the memory of me jumping 10 feet in the air when something grabbed my leg; a huge green frog and other things to throw across the room at me; all the antique books 
you could ever want; a dream job ministering to kids; and a great life with your bride. One day, I'll be privileged to say I know the great Eric Nidiffer. Here's to all the 
holidays we'll spend together with the family — the 5-year plan is in effect! To Chad Snavely - 1 leave a wood-paneled study furnished with a fireplace, leather reading chair, 
and a massive supply of great books; a lifetime supply of Starbucks. Gevalia, and Cafe Rapperswill to be enjoyed while reading in the study and continuing the Saturday 
afternoon tradition (did we ever actually start that?) a great job where you can still get paid to drive and see your girlfriend; and many hours on great golf courses around 
the world. Thanks for the "gizolden" memories- see you at Thanksgiving and Christmas! To Kristen Immel . I leave plenty of circles and psyches, a life lived on the edge, 
and memories of Malibu and the Lookouts, where it all started. Thanks for the encouragement, and never lose who you are. To Catherine Strode . I leave lots of time in 
the Deerfield well, what the heck, I leave you my best friend. To all the 4 - Short boys . I leave the memories of wasting huge amounts of time talking about nothing, 
doing dumb stuff, and loving every second of it. To Anndrea Mathers , I leave the church, the hill, and the fulfillment of all your dreams in life. To Matt Clark , I leave your 
own set of contact lenses, cleaning solution, and a nightly ritual. To IV Smith and Jonathan Moblev , I leave the memory of the first time we ever "talked about it."

I, Aaron Joseph Strode, being of sound body, mind and soul do so enact this statement as my last will and testament upon departure from Bryan College. To my 
loving sister Catherine I bequeath life without an annoying brother, counsel for relationship, fun with "The Rock," and I guarantee that you will not make it. To Jordan 
Musselman I bequeath my sister, a fork, and life without your mentors. To Ruth Schultz I bequeath more circles of trust, lots of fun in b-classes and the guarantee that I 
will find him. To the lmmel sisters I bequeath peace for sisters and many great thanks for continual friendship and the encouragement, and to Kristen lots of conversation 
relating to a vision for the future. To Storie, Wasser, and Suter I leave thanks for the accountability, encouragement, and friendship that I will never forget, never forget 
the night at the knob. To Miles, Aaron, Steve, Mike, IV, Andrew. Matt. Nate, Greg, David. Mark. Jordan, and others who have already left , I leave lots of 4 ,h Short 
memories, perverse moments and serious moments, thanks for the fun. To Gardner I leave a Kirby. To Matt, a U2, Jazz, and Techno marathon. To Arute , 4* Short is 
yours and thanks for your encouragement. I can't wait to see how you will impact lives. To Clinton 1 leave the hope of an incredible life with Charis and the request that 
you please grow your hair back. To Mobley I leave great times in the 'Burg, life as a SEAL, and the knowledge that God has something special planned. To Nidifer . 1 wish 
you were here, but I still leave you thanks for the encouragement and 1 knew you would be the first. To Snavely I leave my basement, excellence in golf, and my expecta- 
tions that you will one day be a dominant force in your industry, if you can't see it you can't use it. To Parker I leave the hope of the girl at the coffee shop, a Barber, 
$100, cake cutting skill, a golf game, and the encouragement to pursue your dreams. To Laura Smith . I leave an incredible vocabulary, walks in the park, the snow 
mountains, too many memories to leave, a plethora of love and the promise that 1 will never truly leave. To all I say, thanks for your friendship and encouragement; never 
settle, never set your sights low, pursue your dreams and don't close the doors, let God close doors, make an impact and change the world. 

1 Rebekah Tidwell. being of sound mind do hereby leave the following to: Molly - the brain, marbles, falling on the walking bridge, getting lost in Chatty and asking the 
transvestite for directions, Molly loves S.E., the jerry-rigged CD player in your car, Tommy Boy, your alarm clock. Ruth - the laughing attack in Marketing, our canoe trip 
and me dropping the canoe on you, those dogs in front of the sign on the way to Chatty, Ruth loves I.D., workouts at the Y, fashion no-no's, the fugitive, sale, VRD 9000. 
Laura - "OK, I'm coming out ." Swedish fish, shoving you off that cliff behind Huston in the snow, nakedness. Molly, Ruth, and Laura - the smell of Christmas, sledding in 
the laundry basket, Freedom Nazi, our controversial soccer game in the park, fill or bust. Josh C . -homeless people, the ability to lose anything and everything. Jenny- 
"Friends," Jenny loves J.C. Susan - knocks on the wall. Danny - Dr. Bruehl's belt purse, VRD 9000. David B. and Josh L .- "But most of all I'd like a big bowl of. . ." Sarah -

my beloved friends. To Shmapril - more purple pig pants, another great bed, lots of eucalyptus, fake fights and bruised eyes, many rides on the Mansfield carousel, another 
night at the Hotel Strasbourg, no more studying for Anatomy, midnight episodes of jumping on the bed, flip-flops for every color of the rainbow, and ladybugs in your bed 
at home. Ingrid - a new way of brushing your teeth, plenty of shampoo and shower gel, a cold room with lots of blankets, Ooltewah pride, peanut butter, a visit to 
Baltimore so we can swing in the park again, boxes of Cheerios for midnight snacking, and an ever-clean toilet. Sarah M.- plenty of tickle fights, a more attractive 
nickname than "Big Martin," sprints around the soccer field, trips to visit Rachel, goop for your feet, and the best coffee in the world. Veronica - an appreciation for Cafce's 
music, Augustine out loud, WWJD? bracelet, honey, and a friend who plays dumb when you ask a question. Claire - a unique style of tennis, my cough medicine anytime 
you want it, more water attacks on your class officers, drastic hair cuts, "How Beautiful" in another wedding, and a chance to steal some reindeer. Jodi L.- many wonderful 
duet partners. Debra - jogging partners who don't make you feel like you have to talk, lots of scrapbooking, skis that won't let you fall when you're standing in line for the 
chair lift, and an occasional run in the rain. Kristi Lestmann - pipe cleaners and hot glue, a red room in your first house, a better version of the Nutcracker, water fights and 
opportunities to continue writing great Christmas poetry, and another chance to prank a house while you sit in the kitchen looking innocent. Sarah R .- a career that will 
not require you to wear shoes, every beach in the world in a bottle, Tae Bo workouts, and a friend who does a better job at dying your hair red than I did. Chris A .- tow 
trucks, house at the beach, a singing debut with Michael of O. Brother Where Art Thou music, flowers from the front of New York City, Fred Williams and a big 
scholarship, a gigantic Christmas wreath, the champion trophy for Spanish, and a dog like mine. Ben N.- many more twigs of Christmas cheer, chocolate chip cookies, 
rice and raisins, and a cool Ooltewah t-shirt. Russ - your favorite movies- do you actually have three?, chocolate chip cookies, more friends who enjoy watching the news, 
pots of chili, the ability to tell when it is cold outside, and a hang glider trip from Buzzards to the Ad building. Tim S.- children's stories in Barnes and Noble, a better trip 
to Sellersville, a big can of honey roasted peanuts, and creative pranks against the India team. Aaron G.- scrubs with a tie, canoeing on the Tennessee River, a Christmas 
tree with a red felt skirt, many readings of Lord of the Rings. Todd S.- beds pushed together, Brittney Spears on your wall, and more snuggly corduroys. All of My Biology 
Friends - a chance to actually show off all of that molecular that we learned, zinc fingers, viagra pens, canoe trips to Chickamauga Lake, one more chance to study 
anatomy in a baking trailer while watching "The Godfater," an in-deoth study of the orbicularis oris and myhlohyiod(?), a million embryology slides, flies that survived the 
fire, and a successful future. I love all of you!

this year. As a group I believe that we were 
able to inspire the student body to know, 
pusue, and proclaim Christ and encourage 
others to do the same. I helped plan chap-

1) Hannah Carr, Abigail Staggers, Kent 

Suter, and Nate Humpreys explain what 

naturalism means to them. 

2) Matt Lowe leads worship for chapel, assisted 
by Leah Hochandael and Kimmie Hill. 

3) After chapel, Bryan students wrote encouraging notes to 
Christina Baumgardner. 

4) Dan Evans and Rachel Held like to get all the spirituality they 
can out of Bryan College and stay after chapel. 

10:00 a.m. An unmistakable time at Bryan. Depending on the day, students 
are scurrying to be part of a corporate worship time in Rudd, meeting a small 
group for discipleship, descending from the hill into the local schools to serve 
by teaching, heading to a class worship or gathering of men and women to 
hear from God's Word. The last few years has seen more variety introduced 
into the chapel programming. Regardless of the form and con- 
tent of the day, the time we have marked aside to be together 
in drawing our affections closer to Christ has remarkable ben- 
efit to our community of faith. Since its inception, Bryan Col- 
lege has placed a premium on spiritual growth. With the 
worldview focus of today and Bryan's mission to"... make a dif- 
ference in today's world", we realize that chiefly this aim finds 
its most significant rooting in a faithful walk with Christ. In the 
words of Dr. Brown in a chapel talk this year, "A faithful life is 
made up of faithful days." In this we find one of the goals of 
spiritual formation on our campus — to move us towards a faithful 
life of serving our Lord by giving opportunity for corporate spiri- 
tual pursuits. As we continue to think through how best to foster 
spiritual growth here at Bryan College, chapel and Tuesday Morn- 
ings is just one of those components. No one program or idea 
can adequately address all of our complex spiritual needs nor 
' should it be tried. In fact, these programs assume a measure of 
self-initiative in the spiritual realm for their own success to be 
known. They are a part of what God uses to grow us in our time 
at Bryan; and yet, an incredibly part beyond our understanding. 
Thus, at 10:00 a.m., we continue to meet together, "singing songs 
and hymns and spiritual songs", receiving truth from God's Word, 
letting others speak into our lives, and serving those around us. 
Matt Benson-Director of Spiritual Formations 

Chapel 69 

"Day o\j P/iayeA 

A time has come again in the life of the Bryan Community. . .a time to pray. The Day of 
Prayer is a unique opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to stop and devote an entire day 
to calling out to our Lord. The Ministry Council, who organizes the events of the day, seeks to 
provide opportunities for various types of participation. The day's events traditionally begin 
with a prayer breakfast where faculty, staff, and students come together and share on a per- 
sonal level and "bear one another's burdens." This year Day of Prayer chapel became a time to 
assemble together and offer prayers of adoration, confession, supplication, and thanksgiving 
to our Father as well as pray for our community, our nation, and our world. The day's events 
came to a close with a time of rememberance as we partook communion together and offered 
praise to our God for what He has done for us through His Son Jesus Christ. For one whole 
day every semester we press the pause button to the normal way of life at Bryan College and 
take the opportunity to enjoy life in a number of ways, whether it be in solitude or in fellowship 
with our closest friends, "approaching the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may 
recieve mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need." 

~ Jonathan Mobley 

Over 100 students 
joined together at the 
Rhea County Court- 
house where they 
divided into smaller 
groups to pray for the 

70 Day of Prayer 

"I urge you, first of all, to pray for all people. As you 

make your requests, plead for God's mercy upon them, 

and give thanks." 1 Timothy 2:1 

"Let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. 

There we will receive His mercy, and we will find grace 

to help us when we need it." Hebrews 4:16 

PCI. Practical Christian Involvement. Bryan's very 
own ministry organization. Directed by History professor, 
father, and husband. Dr. Travis Ricketts, PCI is a student- 
led ministry organization that encompasses a variety of 
activities including PALS, Bible Education Ministry, Char- 
acter and Relational Education, Tutoring, Break For 
Change. Students For Life, KidPraise, Senior Adult Minis- 
try and RIDE. By offering such a variety, every student at 
Bryan has an opportunity to find his or her niche in minis- 
try. Some students enjoy working with local kids through 
the PALS program. Others spend an hour or more a week 
with an elderly Dayton citizen through the SAM ministry. 
The time spent with PCI ministries is both challenging and 
rewarding. Some students choose to spend their Spring 
Break serving others, using outhouses, painting, building, 
teaching children, and 'roughin it.' Yet, rarely does some

What do you do every Wednesday evening at 9:30pm? If 
you were a PCI president you would hang out in the PCI 
lab, have a meeting, and sometimes even be treated to 
tasty milkshakes from the nearby cafe. Each ministry is 
headed up by at least one student each year. The ministry 
presidents spend countless hours making ministry contacts, 
organizing teams, and enlisting and encouraging ministry 
members. This year senior Bible major, Jason Storie, has 
led the team of presidents. Each week he offers Biblical 
advice and encouragement as well as practical helps for 
the ministry presidents.

Freshmen Andy Sewell and Jen Parks pose with their BEM class. 

"Looking back on a difficult year for BEM could make a 
person frustrated or even angry. For me, I am simply 
thankful. Bible Education Ministry (BEM) has been a 
part of Bryan for over fifty years. This past year we 
had around 70 Bryan students going into the elemen- 
tary schools around the county teaching lessons and life 
values from the Bible. As a teacher myself, I loved 
seeing my kids faces light up when I walked into the 
room and hearing their questions and laughter. Even if 
they didn't remember every lesson that I taught, they 
did remember that I was there every week and that I 
really cared about them. Now as president of BEM, I 
have been able to see a different aspectof the ministry: 
the effect it has on the teachers. Interacting with 
people here on campus encouraged me so much. I 
loved the way students here really started to get enthu- 
siastic about the ministry. However, these past few 
years we have know that BEM's days were numbered 
with the move to eliminate religion from the schools. 
Early this year the courts decided to rule against BEM 
in the favor of Freedom From Religion Foundation in 
Wisconsin. The trial, both in the courts and in our 
hearts holds a lesson for us. It is my hope that the loss 
of BEM will inspire students to really put their heads 
together and think of new ways to reach kids in this 
community. There are hundreds if not thousands of 
ways to minister. The question is: who is going to do 
it? BEM had a great history and will hopefully encour- 
age a ministry-filled future."

"This has been a tremendous year for the C.A.R.E ministry at Bryan College! The fall semester went 
extraordinarily well! Bryan students were able to spend much quality time with Dayton City students teach- 
ing them valuable character lessons that will hopefully impact the people they become. For most of the 
second semester, things continued to go very well! We then saw many changes occur that we never ex- 
pected to see when the 

Halfway through the 

spring se- mester the 

decision was made to temporarily suspend the C.A.R.E ministry in order to strengthen it so that it could 
expand to fill the void that formed with the removal of the B.E.M ministry. This task continues and we hope 
to have a very solid, God-honoring character education ministry ready to go in the fall! Thanks to everyone 
who has been involved in PCI this year! You are an incredible blessing to many!"

Sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Belize! 

A day in Belize started every morning at 5 or 6 
amISome brave souls took showers, but most of us 
found that if you waited until the end of the day, 
the water was a little bit warmer. Following 
personal devotions (often under the pavillion), our 
entire team met for breakfast and then group 
devotions. Usually by 8:00am we had all piled 
into the bus to head for our first meeting of the 
day. We had the chance to visit high schools and 
a lot of elementary schools. The kids were won- 
derful. Not one person on our team will forget the 
time we pulled up to Bermudian Landing and the 
kids were crawling all over the fence with excite- 
ment just because they wanted to see us and play 
with us. The goal was to make sure that, by the 
time we left, every kid knew that he or she was 
loved. Throughout the couse of the week we 

te<- *.$) 

traveled to a Spanish village (on the border 
of Mexico), and a Mayan Indian village 
(four hours south of our camp). We 
almost always started with a program that 
involved several skits, songs, a testimony, 
and then the 'wrap-up,' which explained 
the Gospel. Several of us had the 
priviledge of leading children to the Lord! 
It was awesome! To close out the day, we 
ate dinner as a group (yeah beans and 
rice!), and closed the evening with our 
'highs and lows' for the day. By the time 
'light's out' rolled around, everyone was 
; ready to hit the sack. It was a week of 
5 growth, encouragement, and many chil- 
dren coming to know the Lord! Nothing 
H sums up our week better than a mural 

seen on the side of an outhouse - 'Jesus is 
Lord of Belize!' by Leader Karyn Biebel

Serving at JAARS in North Carolina! 

The North Carolina BFC team played a 
support role at JAARS (Jungle Avaiation And 
Radio Services) under the supervision of Tim 
Hunter, a public relations representative. Our 
housing was two apartments in the same 
complex complete with kitchen, four 
bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a living {5 

room... great accomodations. As support, the 
men found themselves applying safety paint 
to curbs and walkways to alert pedestrians. 
The women were assigned to day care and 
housekeeping. They deep cleaned two 
apartments in which missionaries on furlough 
stay. These jobs were significant in that they 
freed up other men and women from these 
responsibilties in that they could better 
perform their jobs. We spent our evenings at 
missionaries houses, eating, and getting the 
skivvy on what it looks like to be a 
missionary and a member of the JAARS 
vision. We also had the priviledge to take a 
ride in a plane one afternoon at the 
hospitality of our hosts, by Todd Smith

During our week in Arizona we spent a lot of time with 

the Apache children, getting to know their culture and the 

people in it. We conducted Vacation Bible School three nights 

during our stay there, and we also spent the week engaging in 

work projects at Canyon Day Lighthouse Family Church. We 

put 'schlack' (spackling) on the walls and ceilings of the new 

Sunday school building, an addition to the church; we painted the exterior of the church; we picked up 

trash, which was present in large amounts on the reservation; and we played with the children and chatted 

with many adults. Around the middle of the week, nine or ten of the girls spent a day at Canyon Day 

Elementary School. During our excursion day, 
we went to historic Ft. Apache, where we toured 
the museum and went to a local Apache cem- 
etery; we went into Geronimo's Cave; we went 
to a local site where ruins exist from a previous 
settlement; and we had a scenic drive through 
the mountains. Though we were tired and a bit 
sick for the majority of our trip, God taught us 
incredible things about the other side of 
America — physically and spiritually.

Equipping the Saints in Weyer's Cave, Virginia! 

One group of students took the challenge 
to ride in a van together for hours upon end and 
work at a warehouse full of junk. Their purpose 
would include turning a lot of the junk into trea- 


sures to send to missionaries around the world. The 
ministry of Equipping the Saints in Weyer's Cave, 
Virginia involves taking old stuff, fixing it up and 
sending it off to missionaries for a discounted price. 
The group spent the week sorting 
through piles of clothing to send in huge 
tractor-tr ailor-size containters . 

Other activities included spending time 
with alumni and pastor Danny Campbell, 
a rural church fellowship and many oth- 
ers in the local community. The Bryan 
team sought to serve in area possible. 
With the jokes of Dr. Fouts to keep them 
going all week, this team made a great 
impact on a small place in rural Virginia. 

The Virginia team is posing on the steps of the old, rural

connectivity and their love for Fouts' puns.

evangelism. The team also helped out with cleaning 
and light construction work at the Bible Training 
Center. This team helped to cultivate many relation- 
ships with the local community. There are many new 
believers in Eleuthera who desire strong discipleship 
and true fellowship with other believers. The Bryan 
team focused on this during their week of ministry.

The Nicaragua team spent a week working 
alongside AMG and alumni Pat Ragan. The team spent 
the majority of their time doing construction and playing 
with children. They first arrived in Managua, a larger 
city in Nicaragua, and stayed at Chosen Children Minis- 
tries, a local orphanage. From there they traveled by bus 
for 7 hours to a smaller village where they would spend 
time with the local church. About half of the team 
worked with some of the local church members on 
building a classroom at the school while the other half of 
the team played games with the school children during 
their breaks. The team also attended worship services at 
the church and spent time with the youth at the church. 

Nicaragua is in a hot climate and has rainforest- 
like land. The team was able to experience this weather 
most of the week and was even able to go to a farm area. 
At -the farm team members tasted a bazillion different 
kinds of fruit and got to get their own coconuts straight 
from the tree. 

The most impactful parts of the trip for this team 
were the times to .share the love of Christ with other 
believers and with the local community through encour- 
agement. Giving a hug to a child or talking (in broken 
Spanish) with a local vendor were memorable moments for

Tutoring is a ministry focusing on at-risk kids in the 
community and their educational needs. The Bryan tutors 
go to a Methodist church in Dayton and The Brighter Vision 
Learning Center, which is a government building in the hous- 
ing project. Most of the children ride vans to the tutoring 

Tutoring at the church is rather crazy and wild. The 
tutors often feel like celebrities when they walk inside be- 

cause the children sur- 
round them when they 
enter the building. The at- 
mosphere at the center is 
a little calmer because there are fewer kids in a concentrated area. At both locations, 
getting the children to focus can sometimes be a challenge, but tutors get to know and 
love them personally through their interaction. 

Tutoring is a wonderful ministry for the kids. Some have learning disabilities and 
need individual attention. Others just want to be loved. Regardless of their academic 
abilities, all of them are needy. The kids sometimes tell the tutors stories about their 
families that can break even the hardest heart. The opportunity for tutors to reach 
out is amazing.

Ambassadors are students who

of which ambassadors are responsible. 
To be selected for an ambassador posi- 
tion, a student must be chosen by a 
faculty member or current ambassador 
based on active campus involvement 
and spiritual witness, as well as an abil- 
ity to make visitors feel at home. Pro- 
spective ambassadors also have to go 
through an interview process where 
they show the ability to answer ques- 
tions about Bryan College. Ambassa- 
dors are a very important part of Bryan 
College recruitment, and being one is 
quite an honor.

'The concept of Worldview is so interwoven with 
the subject matter of classes at Bryan, that I sometimes 
forget that the idea is actually revolutionary. Traveling with 
the Worldview Team is a continual reminder." - Jen Vanden 

Jen Vanden Heuvel is one of the members on the 
Worldview Team. The Team travels to many states. The 
main objective is to promote a Biblical Worldview to high 
school and college students, and many others. The Team 
members challenge the audience to educate themselves on 
Naturalism, Transcendentalism, and Theism. One mem- 
ber said, "as Christians, we are neither to condemn nor 
ignore our culture. Instead, we are charged to engage it, 
and I believe that we are better able to do so when we 
understand our own worldview and the worldviews that 
surround us in the media." 

Seniors Michael Carter and Aaron Braun Duin work on the

So, have you ever been on a yearbook staff? Have you ever thought 
about joining one? You should if you actually read all the words on the 
pages. Creating a book from scratch is not an easy job. But it is a job that 
is rewarding and most colleges do not experience this at the same level 

that we do at Bryan College. Chances are that you'll see your picture in our book. Chances are you'll know most 
of the people on the pages. Chances are most of them will know you. So this book is a remembrance of this year, 
as crazy or as boring as it may have been. It captures a few of the smiles and crazy moments, with a mixture of the 
somber ones. We try our best to give a visual 
journey of the year, only a taste of what it has 
meant to each of you. We try to give something 
solid that can be looked at 25 years from now and 
bring a smile to your face and a reminder of the 
work God has done in your life these few years 
here. So, if you ever want to make an impact that 
goes beyond the four years on the hill, join the 
Commoner Staff. If not, enjoy these few pages 
and don't forget the hard work that went in to 
making it just for you.

The Triangle 

Some Bryan students spend their 
Wednesday evenings going to PCI meet- 
ings or hanging out with the FCA crowd 
or even going down to Chatty to witness 
to customers at Northgate Mall. But a 
few brave souls spend their evening in 
the Communication Arts building putting 
out the campus newspaper. 

The Triangle staff, led by Rachel 
Held and a team of editors, works hard 
to inform the student body. The Triangle 
has taken on a whole new look this year 
and has been the talk of the campus at 
times. One can often look around a 
classroom on certain afternoons 
and see the majority of the stu- ^ 
dents browsing their copy of 
the latest Triangle. 

One feature this 
year has been "The 


House Perspec- 
tive" by Tim 


Shorey . 
and informa- 
tional piece 
keeps the campus 
abreast of the activi- 
ties and thoughts of the 
men of Rhea House. The 
editorials this year have also 
been insightful and poignant.

Crossing Delancey is a play set in modern 
times about a girl who lives in New York City 
and works in a small bookstore. She must 
make the choice between the author, who she 
thinks she loves and only wants one thing 
from her, and the pickle man, who gives her a 
new outlook on life and tries to woo her, that 
her grandmother and the matchmaker are 
throwing at her.. 

The Hilltop Players did a wonderful job with 
this production. Perhaps the highlight of the 
production is when Joie Stone throws a glass 
full of wine into the face of Brian McKenney. 
During production week Muriah Freeman got 
sick and stuck to the stage motto, "The show 
must go on." But on one occasion she was 
too sick to perform, so Abi Russell, the stu- 
dent director, took the roll of the grand- 

Grossing Delancey cast members Lizzy 
Murphy, David Shifrin, Joie Stone, Brian 
McKenney", Muriah Freeman. 

"I wish she would just stop talking. I wish he would leave." 

"Such a good girl 

"This is my bank." 

"Look, she's

book. Time to '

"I will never forget Friday night's performance 
when Quentin reached over to get the tray with 
the cake on it during the performance of "Your 
Majesties Dance." He turned around and his 
pants just fell down. That wasn't supposed to 
happen and I had no clue what to do. It took 
everything I had not to laugh so hard on stage 
where everyone would hear me! Come to think 
of it, Quentin had many problems with his pants 
- he was just a big guy!!!" ~ Bryan Day

"During one of the performances of Cinderella, I totally 
botched a line. The dialogue was supposed to go like this: 
Portia: 'You know what they always say!' 
° Joy: 'Uh. . .Uh. . .an idle mind is the devil's work 

Portia: 'That's what they always say!' 
For some reason one performance, I couldn't remember 
my line to save my life, so it came out like this: 
Portia: 'You know what they always say!' 
Joy: ' devil is the mind's workshop?' 
Portia: 'That's what they always say!' 
We didn't even get offstage without cracking up, and once 
we were off, we belly laughed for about five straight

a specific word was placed underneath a random seat and whoever had 
the card under his or her seat had to ask a question with that word 
in it. Dr. Coffield and Dr. Brown were the designated ones to 
answer such questions while the rest of the student body laughed

"Overall, we had a great season, 
even though we did not finish where we 
would have liked too. This is my fourth 
year playing volleyball at Bryan and it has 
been by far the best team I have played 
with; we were more spiritually minded 
and we got along very well. I consider 
each of my teammates a friend. There 
was definitely a strong sense of unity. 
This is the most unified team I have 
played with at Bryan. I could not have 
asked for a better Senior Year season, 
besides of course, bringing home the first 
place banner! However, I am very con- 
tent with the season as a whole. "

and losses were truly inconsequential for the 2001- 
3002 Lady Lions. The "bottom line for us was get- 
ting the most out of the talent that God has "blessed 
us with and doing so in a manner that is worthy 
of our calling as believers. At times, this can be a 
very tough task. All things considered, I was very 
proud of our girls."

The goal of intramurals is to provide an opportunity for 
students to experience healthy competition with and against class- 
mates. More importantly, it is fun! Games include anything 
from basketball, volleyball, and football to badmitton, ultimate 
frisbee, and tenni s. toWhat better way to burn off some energy 
and deal with the stress of classes than playing your favorite 
sport and having fun with friends? And hey if you win the cham- 
pionship, you get a t-shirt! No wonder so many students are 
involved with intramurals.

The Den of the Lions has a time of fellow- 
ship every Wednesday night at 9:00. Fellowship 
of Christian Athletes meets for fun, food, encour- 
agement, and worship. Throughout this year the 
attendees of FCA have become closer as friends 
and also as brothers and sisters in Christ. 

FCA at Bryan College focuses on relation- 
ship building and on kingdom building. The 
leaders of FCA this year united to create an at- 
mosphere of support for each other. The goal 
behind the support group was to capitalize on 
each other's gifts and then use them for the work 
of the kingdom here at Bryan. Ephesians 4:11- 
12 says, "And he gave some apostles; and some 
prophets; and some evangelists; and some pas- 
tors and teachers." 

FCA has taken some huge strides in order 
to develop into a club that will make a difference 
here at Bryan and further in the Dayton commu- 
nity. As we look forward to another year, we will 
continue to make Christ-centered friendships with 
each other.

On April 06, 2002, Bryan College put on its annual talent 
show that all students are invited to perform in or just simply 
view. For two consecutive years in a row, veterans Jonathan 
Mobley and Kauri Tallant hosted the show and the crowd found 
them quite humorous, as usual. The participants included 
those all the way from the Freshman to the Senior class. The 
skits consisted of musical performances, interpretive dancing, 
and poetry reading. The show would not have been complete 
without the continuation of the "Jackbutt" video directed by 
Charlie Phillips, Stephen Chapman, and Mike Sheddan. Al- 
though students were initially reluctant to sign up, over fifteen 
acts were performed and the show was well attended by Bryan 
students, faculty, friends, and family.

The annual Masquerade on the riverboat 
is always a memorable event. It is when we get 
the chance to go to extravagant lengths to dress 
up and have a fun night with our friends. The 
fun, food and fellowship, and this year the live 
band, made the night all we hoped it would be. 

1. Shelly, Casie, Kesha, and Vanessa are on the 
lookout for their knights in shining armor. 

2. Matt Corell keeps the girls occupied with his 
stunning good looks and fashionable pop-belly. 

3. Andrew Bahman and Jesse Johnson tyr to 
steal the show, but Joey Raboin knows his kilt 
and blue face paint are what every girl wants.

1. Sarah Carpenter, Rebekah Tidwell, 
and Molly Gaeta take a break from their 
game in a league of their own. 

2. Danny Harvey and Daniel Gleason are 
excited that they finally get to wear their 
favorit outfits without being made fun of. 

3. The live band did wonders to cool 
down the dancing this year. 

4. Carrie Wilson, Hannah Hammond , 
Jennifer Wilson, and Sonia Samuelsen 
still can't fool anyone even with these 
"innocent" school-girl uniforms on.

Dr. Sidebotham is retiring this year after many years serving the 
Education Department. 

By offering licensure in Elementary Educa- 
tion, Music, PE, Biology, English, History, Mathemat- 
ics, and Psychology, the Education Department 
Touches the lives of many of the students at Bryan 
College. Practicums in area schools begin during 
the freshman year, giving students authentic field 
experiences early in their chosen career. Education 
classes provide current educational theory and prac- 
tice, along with many opportunities to present pre- 
pared lessons, lesson plans, and bulletin boards. The 
final semester consists of a fifteen-week student teach- 
ing experience that provides two separate grade 
placements. After passing the Praxis II Examina- 
tions, students completing their programs are eligible 
to receive licensure from the Tennessee Department 
of Education, which is reciprocal with many other 
states. Our goal is to develop professional educa- 
tors who believe in the importance of understanding 
content, the development of their students, and the 
role of individual differences in the context of a Bib- 
lical Worldview.

Department during the week.

Psychology Department 


The Psychology Department integrates a knowl- 
edge of psychology with Biblical principles in order to 
give students a clear and Biblical understanding of psy- 
chology. The professors use a variety of ways to help 
students understand the material that is taught, from 
carrying egg "children" in Childhood Growth and Devel- 
opment to having special speakers come in and explain 
how adolescents think. The highlight of the year was 
the American Association of Christian Counselors Inter- 
national Conference held in Nashville. About forty Bryan 
students attended the conference and were able to hear 
well-known speakers Larry Crabb, Josh McDowell, and 
John Eldredge. 

The theme of the Psychology Senior Seminar this year 
was 'Connecting and Community' and how the body 
needs to function in order to give comfort and encour- 
agement for others in need. They read The Safest Place 
on Earth , by Larry Crabb.

A memorable moment happened 
in stumping Dr. Cof field. I had done 
some review on the "board with my 
phonetics students. It was so pretty 
and colorful that I decided to leave it 
up. Dr. Coffield uses the room after 
we do. Later I asked him what he 
thought about what was on the 
board. He said, "Usually I can make 
some intelligent comment about 
things left on the board, but I just 
looked at that and had no idea what 
it was all about.

Professor of Linguistics

Dr. Ricketts says that the best thing 
about the Language department is the 
good- looking professors, but that's not all 
its got going for it! The Department of 
Language and Linguistics offers quality in- 
struction in several languages: French, 
Spanish, Greek, and Hebrew. The Lan- 
guage Department cares about its students 
also. The professors feel that learning a 
foreign language is not just a part of a Gen. Ed requirement, but an 
important part of obtaining an education. In the future, the Language 
Department wants to develop majors in all the languages and 
linguistics as well as begin clubs which will give the students better 
exposure to the culture and life of the language groups.

The student workers for the math department pack up to leave after a long day of

The Math Department at Bryan Col- 
ege focuses on enabling students to reason logi- 
cally and systematically in every area of life. 
Vlath courses encourage careful attention to 
ietail and checking work before submission, 
vlath courses also expose students to relating 
heir faith to the mathematical aspect of reality 
is well as every other aspect of math. A vari- 
ety of career options are available to math ma- 
ors. Teaching, technical research, engineer- 
ng, physical science, and statistician work are 
ust a few jobs that math majors can choose, 
vlathematical people also tend to do well as 
Bible translators because of the analysis in- 
/olved and their ability to deal with symbols.

The Business Department is made up of faculty who have obtained graduate degrees from major universities in 
their teaching areas and also have business experience. This experience enables the professors to focus the coursework of 
the business classes in specialized areas, which also means that Bryan business majors are getting their money's worth. 
The main goal of the Business department is to teach students business knowledge as well as integrate biblical truth into 
the classes, while not compromising the content of the courses. Bryan College students have scored in the 98 th percentile 
in a nationally normed business exam. This statistic alone displays the quality of the business department at Bryan 
College, which is made up of professors who care about students and their future.

Bible Department 

The Department of Biblical Studies 
offers courses in Bible, Philosophy, Christian 
Education, and Ancient Languages (Greek, 
Hebrew, and Egyptian Hieroglyphics). The 
Bible professors include Dr. Paul Boling, Dr. 
Bill Brown, Dr. David Fouts, Dr. Ernie 
Ricketts, Dr. Dan Wilson, Dr. Rick Morton, 
Mr. John Stonestreet, Dr. Bob Andrews, Dr. 
Doug Russell, Mr. Matt Benson, Dr. Peter 
Held, and Dr. Sandy Zensen. All of these 
professors play a part in making the Bible 
Department a great place. After four years 
of learning, seniors are faced with two final 
tasks to complete. Through the Senior Semi- 
nar capstone course majors prepare for Bible 
orals and a senior thesis which are both cru- 
cial elements that must be completed before 
graduation. Students become Bible majors 
for various reasons. Some want to go into 
ministry-being a pastor or youthpastor-others 
want to go into full-time missions, and others 
just want to gain the knowledge provided 
through the Biblical Studies tract. No matter 
what path Bible graduates choose, they will 
always be impacted with the knowledge that 
was gained in their years at Bryan.

The purpose statement of the Department of Communica-

and practice principles and processes of the traditional and artistic 
forms of human communication." This purpose statement is made 

possible through three Communication Arts professors: Mr. Palmer, Mr. Belisle. and Dr. Myers 
sor offers insight to many Communication majors in the area of class schedule advising, graduate school 
counseling and even general life issues. One great aspect of Bryan's Communication department is each 
professor has a variety of unique gifts. Dr. Myers specializes in leadership development and children's commu 
nication. Mr. Belisle works best anywhere close to a stage and a group of thespians and Mr. Palmer delights 
many with his English anecdotes and words of wisdom.

"This year's senior history majors were a fun and

made the comment about us that 'You all are pretty differ-

fond of Jared Jones' PowerPoint presentations! Dr. Traylor 
got us using the phrase 'takin' a fade' to refer to missing a 
day of class, or getting an assignment pushed back. We are 
all thankful for the 'fades' throughout the years." - Senior

Dr. Ketchersid's class is his unusualy and witty

by Daniel Nathan 

The death of Assistant Professor 
of Education, Dr. Ken Froemke, is what 
this article could have been about. But 
due to a surprising sequence of events that 
everyone who witnessed called miraculous, 
this article is about life, its fragility, and 
how one man almost lost his. 

Froemke walked into Summer's 
gymnasium at about 10 a.m on, Feb, 28, 
to run his daily two miles around the 
basketball court. As usual, he was alone 
on the court. Ten minutes into Froemke's 
run, sophomore Chris Travis came into the 
gym to play basketball with his son 

"My son always wants to play 
basketball, and I had decided to take him 
to the court that day," Travis said. 

Travis also said he did not take 
much notice of Froemke and Cameron just 
started shooting and playing around. But 
the situation was about to change 

"After Cameron and I had played 
for about 30 minutes, I heard Dr. Froemke 
fall from the bleachers, slamming his head 
on the court floor," Travis said. 

Travis sprinted up the bleachers 
and into Athletic Director Dr. Sandy 
Zensen's office. "I think Dr. Froemke has 
passed out," Travis told Zensen. 

Zensen ran out of his office, called 
head athletic trainer Mike Weller, who in 
turn told women's basketball head coach 
Jim Arnold to dial 9 1 1 . Arnold called 911, 
men's basketball head coach Morris 
Michalski called Froemke's wife, Marcy, 

while Zensen and Weller raced down to 
the court. They saw Froemke turning blue 
with his eyes rolled back into his head, 
and without a pulse, or as Zensen said, 
"Practically dead." 

Zensen and Weller immediately 
began to administer cardiopulmonary 
resuscitation. Zensen did the chest 
compressions while Weller did the 
breathing, and after the second CPR cycle, 
breath returned to Froemke, and he began 
gasping for air. It had been about two 
minutes since he had collapsed. 

With Froemke brerathing again, 
Zensen and Weller stopped CPR, rolled 
Froemke on his side, and used a tongue 
compressor to hold down the gasping 
man's tongue and keep his windpipe open. 
A minute later Froemke was breathing 

Four minutes later an ambulance 
arrived, Froemke was wheeled into it and 
sped to Rhea Medical Center escorted by 
his wife. Zensen wept as the ambulance 

"It was at that point I realized I 
had almost lost a friend," he said. 

After getting his heart stabilized, 
medical center staff called Froemke's 
cardiologist Dr. Stephen Stubblefield in 
Chattanooga. Froemke was then taken 
to Erlanger Medical Center in Chattanooga 
where an angiogram was immediately 
done. The angiogram, which basically 
involves dye being injected into the 
arteries, showed that Froemke had four 
blocked arteries. Erlanger surgeons 
immediately decided that quadruple 
bypass surgery was necessary. 

The next day, March 1, Froemke 
went into surgery. The surgery, which was 
performed by Dr. Stephen Martin, lasted 
two hours and went smoothly. Veins were 
taken from Froemke's leg and used to 
create "detours" around the blocked areas 
of his arteries. 

Four days later, Froemke was 
allowed to return home to continue his 
recovery. The major part of the ordeal 

was over, an experience that Zensen said 
"drove home how fragile and brief life is." 

"Why?," is the question Froemke 
said he finds himself asking God. "I am 
asking Him what He has for me, and what 
he wants me to do differently in my job, 
with my relationships and life in general." 

Of all that happened to him on 
Feb 28, Froemke said he was most 
impacted by what he called "two very 
miraculous events." First, the fastest 
member of the basketball team happened 
to be in the gym when the attack occurred. 
Travis' speedy reaction brought Zensen 
and Weller to Froemke's aid. Secondly, 
he found it miraculous that both men are 
the best-qualified men to perform CPR on 
campus and were also in their offices at 
that time. 

"It would have been very difficult 
for one person to perform CPR," Froemke 

"If we had gotten there about four 
minutes later, and his condition had 
progressed to a cardiac arrest, at which 
point his brain would have begun to be 
damaged, we would have lost him and 
CPR would have been ineffective . . . The 
whole experience gave me a new 
appreciation of how fragile life is," Weller 

"I did not see a light at the end of 
a tunnel, or become suddenly aware of 
some profound truth. I think the message 
from this is that we should not be too busy 
with the cares of the world that we forget 
to be open to the Lord," Froemke said. 

Weller said he and the others who 
were directly involved with saving 
Froemke's life were simply doing what 
they had to do. 

"We were at the right place at the 
right time and God put us there" said 

Zensen, who could also be seen as 
a hero said, "Ultimately, the credit needs 
to be left at the feet of our Savior." 

Froemke is still recovering at home 
and should be back on campus in a month.

professors (Dr. Legg, Dr. Jones, and Dr. Impson) 
were moved into the Student Life Center and their 
offices replaced the computer lab that used to be 
there. One of the many advantages of the moves 
was the construction of the writing center, placed

Computer Science at Bryan College is new as a major course of study 
as of the Fall Semester of 2001. The Computer Science major stresses a 
broad education across the field with specialization opportunities in four areas. 

A grant to Bryan established the faculty position and provided 
money to equip a Computer Science classroom. In August 2001, the 
C. S. classroom, ADM 106, was outfitted with 29 new PC's and a 
SUN database server. 

Each Honors Week, the Computer Science Program recognizes 
a rising sophomore with the Paul McCarthy Scholarship given in me- 
morial to a Bryan Graduate. 

The Program sponsors a Computer Science Practicum for stu- 
dents who have a summer job related to Computer Science. Students 
receive three hours credit for CSCI 472.

The world of biology. Yes, a strange world that a few brave souls dare to 
venture. It's a world that has a history of respect and dedication, mingled with 
rare humor, late nights, and near insanity. Ask any Biology major whose had 
a Hartzell class and you will gain a new respect for us. Ask any student 
whose juggled three labs a week what it is like and we won't be able to 
describe it justly. Ask us why we chose our major and you'll get a variety 
of answers. Some of us strive to be doctors; others want to be nurses. 
Some want to go into education, medical research, or creation science. Some 
don't have a clue, but know they have a desire to delve into God's creation. That is the 
amazing benefit of being a biology major. We get a unique perspective on God. We are 
surrounded by knowledge of His intricate creation-every new fact is another way for us to learn 
about God. And that is what God has called us . to: to 

about Him and bring glory to His name.

Have you ever 
wondered if there is 
anyone out there in 
the vast masses of 
people who loks like 
you or acts like you, 
talks like you or even 
picks their nose like 
you? Most of you 
have probably at least 
allowed this thought 
to cross your mind a 
time or two. For 
some Bryan students 
the answer to this 
question hits close to 
home. Cur- 

rently at Bryan there 
are 7 sets of twins. 5 

of the 7 are identical 
twins. Julia and 
Abigail Staggers and 
Josh and Megan Bales 
are fraternal twins. 
Josh is also the only 
male in the whole 

Having these 
twins around can be 
quite confusing at 
times especially when 
the sets first arrive on 
campus. After awhile 
the campus learns 
that each twin is 
definitely an individual 
with unique qualities 
that set them apart.

provoking and challenging speeches. But the 
real hero of the day was Senior David Dahlke. 
A Christian Education major from Chattanooga, 
Tennessee, David gave all glory and honor to 
God our Father as he crossed the stage walking

heart in the room. David's accomplishment that 
morning is more inspiring than any words ever 
spoken. Way to go Dahlke!
