'Your vision nill become clear only when yon look into 
awakens, " (Carl Ciistavjunv ) . 

Dri\-ing by the D\'C Cam- 
pus one might think this place 
to be just another college cam- 
pus. Take a plane flight over 
the campus and that same per- 
son could observe many build- 
ings alJ constructed for and 
from dreams. The founders of 
our college had a dream and 
found the means to awaken it. 
Years later, here we are, all here 
for different majors. Yet wc 
are all here for the same simple 
reason. ..awakening our 
dreams. And as we follow our 
dreams here, we follow in tlu 
footsteps of those in the pasi 
We keep their traditions ali\ 
and on some occasions star^ 
our own. As the traditions pik 
up, they bring life to D\'(.. 
making the campus a uniqut 
place with indicative character 
istics in a specific combination 
found only here... 

'When you have a dream you 
got to grab it and net erktgo, " (Can 
Burnett). 

And that l>. u h;it mn'-i n(' i 

have doni- 

looking an lundC.impuK.iKiNiu I know (.a enf)ne s 
dream'' Do yf)u know your dream"- Life at Del \'al 
is enriched bv this combination of dreams. I-'rom 



your bvarl ... Who looks outside, dreams. Who looks inside, 

clubs to personalities everything 
here is affected. Walking to 
class, some of the expressions 
people are wearing on their faces 
can sometimes be contagious. 
From a simple smUe to the fiill- 
blown Monday-morning trag- 
edy even-one makes life at Del 
\'al even more interesting and 
entertaining. . . 

"ll-'V live in the present, we dream 
of the future, but we learn eternal 
/ruths from the past. " (Madame 
' hiang). 

So, gaze deeply into this small 
CI )llection of innocent truth and 
\r\ to find some hidden mean- 
ing. A picture is truly worth 
more than a thousand words, 
which in turn makes these pages 
mfire than what they seem. As 
vou gaze upon the past months 
pictured here tn,- to look past 
the images. 

I ust as a song has its rhythm and 
rhyme, so do these picmres, and 
their song shall go on forever as 
long as new dreams join its 
melody. Life at Delaware Val- 
ley College is set in a beauti- 
ful rhythm as dreams are fulfilled. And as the years 
pass the song shall become ever more radiant calling 
out to new dreamers as their dreams awaken...

Introduction 5 



ma\ 




Walking around campus on any given Thursday night can tell you that Delaware Valley College's 
campus is anything but dry. Should this be a next step for residence life? Dr. Elizabeth Arrison, Vice 
President of Student Affairs, has "never been in support of going dr}-." 

What, then, can this college 



do to crack down on all the 
illegal drinking? Answer: 
Tougher sanctions. The regu- 
lations on drinking alcohol on 
campus cover sic and a half 
pages in the Delaware Valley 
College Student Handbook: 
2003-2004. The sanctions cover 
only less than one full page. 
Howe\-er, these sanctions may 
now have more impact than the 
rules. 

Se\-eral new punishments for 
violating alcohol regulations 
have been placed into this year's 
handbook; Most noticably a 
S5W) fine for the first offense 
and a SI 000 fine for the second 
time around. There is also a 
mandator}- drug and alcohol 
screening at the Counseling 
Center along with parcntia no- 
tification. 

Cabinet members decided 
late falll and early spring of last 
year to add these new penalrie'^ 
in the 2003-2004 handbook. 

The cabinet meets to "h;i-li 
out issues," and lately alcf)h 
has been a major one. Thty u.^i-u^^cti \i ihc current 
sanctions were effective and if a change should be 
made.

Arrison said the students' per- 
spective of the punishments at 
the rime was a "slap on the 
wrist," and they decided that 
"stricter sanctions would have 
an impact." 

Enter: student reaction. 
Arrison says that right now 
manv are testing it, and some 
are "scared." An exact number 
of fines handed out is unclear, 
currently, becuase the whole 
process of receiving letters and 
having a hearing can take up to 
and f)ver one and half weeks. 

Some students are con- 
cerned about the reaction oth- 
ers will have. "It has deterred 
people from drinking on cam- 
pus, but not from going off 
campus. ..and driving them- 
selves back," says Sophomore 
Amanda Rushinski. 

.•\rrison says anyone doing 
an "illegal activity in 
public. ..runs a major risk." 

Arrison is adameant that 
scanctions alone never work. 
Sanctions are "just the punish- 
ment end of it," 
II cannot be the only thing we do."

Togmier 



On September 1 1, 2003, Resident Advisors 
Calhoun organized a vigil to commemorate those 

The candle lighting cer- 
emony, which was held directh 
outside the student center gave 
students the opportunity to 
share their own feelings about 
the grim day. Nearly 200 stu- 
dents turned out for the event, 
as well as several student life 
staff members, security offic- 
ers, and a local EMT squad. 

"I thought it was nice that a 
large group of people came out 
to show their support and honor 
the victims and support the 
cmergenq- workers who do so 
much for us e%-ery'day." state< i 
Senior RA Abby Gordon. 

TTiroughout the event, the 
ILA's encouraged students to 
share their own personal 9/1 1 
experiences. For some, the trag- 
edy hit close to home and thev 
recalled how their town worked 
diligendy to help the victims 
and their families. 

"My mom was called down 
tf) the harbor to assist families 
who were transported from 
Ncu- York to Nevi- Jersey and 
helped with injuries," stated 
sf)phomore Tracey Nfarrazzo. She wt 



Rob Baiada, Nina Wolfarth, Abby Wilson, and Rence 
lives which were lost during the September 11 th tragedy, 
plain, "My best friend and i 
helped take down names and 
reunite people with their fami- 
lies. TelUng people that their 
husband or wife didn't make it 
was the hardest think we ever 
had to do." 

For others, the day reminds 
them that the aftermath of Sep- 
tember 11 is still occurring. 
Students reminded others that 
there are still thousands of sol- 
diers currently fighting over seas 
t( ) make our nation a safer place. 
In addition to the number 
I )f stories shared with the crowd, 
Nina Wolfarth beautifully sang 
our national anthem as the EMT 
squad lowered and folded the 
flag. 

The evening showed llie 
college communit)- that no one 
will forget the tragedy of Sep- 
tember 1 1th. It has become a 
part of all of our lives and de- 
sciTCS to be remembereil wnA 
honored ever}' year. 

The event was truly antl en- 
lightening experience for all 
those who attended the vigil. 
iln|Klull\, this commemoration will continue for 



^.»^S^' 




years to come.

yard touchdown and a 35-28 advantage. 
It completed an 11-play, 70-yard drive 
that saw Knoblauch complete five of six 
passes for 66 yards.

the end of the third quarter as die Lions 
had a first-and-goal situation from the 
Aggie 5. They then had 
the ball at the one-yard

of the game in the early going as Schurtz 
hit Joe Franzone for a five-yard touch- 
down pass and, following a blocked punt, 
Hedgepeth went in untouched from a 
yard out for a 1 4-0 lead.

The Delaware \'allc-v ('ollege women's 
soccer team has alwax s tound its great- 
est success when the roster is a small 
one. This was the case in 2000 when the 
18-player mster qualified for the Free- 
dom (Conference playoffs for the first 
time in pr. itfr.ini lustor)-, and it followed 
suit hst season when 14 players went 
10-9 overall for the first winning season 
since 1998. 

I jst vcar's group also w ent 3-4 in con- 
ference play and nearly qualified for the

The 2003 edition, un- 
der eighth year head

of her first 1 9 games, needs just three 
goals and nine points to move into fifth 
place on the Delaware Valley all-time 
list in both categories. 

Fellow sophomore Dana Ronyack

not play last season. 
Doderer was a sec- 
ond team, All-Freedom Conference

22 points.

For twelve students and two 
advisors, this year's spring break 
was no break. Instead of head- 
ing to Cancun for a week of 
part\'ing, they opted to volun- 
teer their time working for 
Habitat for Humanity in 
Wilmington Delaware. In 
additon to the 30 plus hours of 
volunteer work, the students 
also raised money to donate to 
the habitat families. Students 
worked in three teams. One 
group found themselves ded to 
a roof of a nearly completed 
house, another spent 



rhcir week putting up walls to 
an emerging foundauon, and 
the last spent their time follow- 
ing plans to construct walls. 
After the working daj- was com- 
plete, the students would head 
to the local YMCA for dicir 
daily shower, then the\- would 
head back to the place thcv 
would call home for the next 
five days, a two hundred \x'ar 
old Quaker meeting home, aka 
"club quaker".

Halloween 



Haunting 



Thanks to a great executive team 
accompanied bv many talented sm- 
dents, Halloween Haunting was a 
huge success. Much handwork and 
dedication along with manv artistic 
skills helped mold Fright Night into 
a memorable experience. Weeks were 
spent preparing props, set ups, cos- 
mmes and trying go get ever\-thing 
just perfect. Stu- 
dents spent the 
weekend helping 
out, whether it 
was with crowd 
control, haunting 
the haunted 
house, driving 
tractors. 



or hiding out in the tlelds ready to 
pounce on unsuspecting passengers 
on the ha\Tide. 

The weekend started off slowwith 
a rainv Thursday night. Still en- 
thused, students worked hard to 
spook those who participated in die 
events.

W'ohlfson. The night was filled with

Winter Semi 



On December 7, 2003 students 
who are commonly seen in 
sweatpants and jeans were magi- 
cally transformed into heart throbs 
dressed in suits and beautiful prin- 
cesses dressed in gowns. The 
winter semi-formal was held in 
what is normally the APR. But on 
this enchanted evening it was iden- 
tical to a dazzling ballroom. The 
gorgeous colors, decorations, 
lights and 
water fountain 
made the stu- 
dents feel as if 
they were danc- 
ing the night 
away in a dream 
land that could 
only be out of a 
fantasy. 



Mj'stic Moonlight was success- 
fully coordinated and brought to 
life by Steve Byzek with lots of 
help from his committee and 
members of the Student Govern- 
ment Board. Momentous 
amounts of time and effort made 
Mystic Moonlight possible. Be- 
cause of all the hard work, faculty', 
staff, students, and guests were 
able to enjoy great food and great 
music as they danced with friends 



through this spellbinding atmo- 
sphere. This night will forever be 
in everyone's memories and 
hearts. 

Once again, a special thank 
you to Steve Byzek, the commit- 
tee and the Student Government 
Board.

It certainly was the "Garden 
of Eden" at this year's semi- 
formal held at Nostalgia. The 
junior class presented a 
evening full of dancing, deli- 
cious food, and plenty of drink. 
Guests and their dates were 
given the option of three en- 
trees and two 
desserts, all of 
which were di- 
vine. Guests ar- 
rived at 7:00, 
where they 
spent the next 
half-hour min- 
glingwith other 



attendees, then, at 7:30, din- 
ner was served. After all guest 
had finished their meals, the 
DJ got the part)' started with a 
little hip-hop. Every dancer 
agreed that the music was 
broad-ranged and likeable for 
any taste. When the 



musicstopped, the guests 
dashed through the rain to 
their cars and buses in hopes 
of not destroyed their beauti- 
ful gowns and handsome suits. 
All in all, the night was spec- 
tacular and everyone seemed 
to have a dazzling night.

A-Day 



"VC'e've gone back to our 
roots," said A-Day chair Jason 
Smith at a student government 
meeting. A-Day member Ashlev 
Love added, "^"e are remembering 
tlie point of A-Day. It's not about 
tood or crafts, it's about agriculture. 
It's about sho\\-ing off all Del \'al 
has to offer. It's about learning, 
.md somehow over the year's, that 
has been lost." 

This year's A-Dav exec team 
took A-Day to a new level, adding 
exhibits, the turkev hill cow, a fair 
booklet and much 
more. In addition 
to the new 
features, A-Da\ 
was recognized 
this vear as a 
Pennsvlvania 
national fair. 

Along with the 
changes came a 
complete revamp- 
in? of the food 



tent. The A-Day exec team an- 
nounced that all food would be 
under one tent and all payments 
would be cash only as opposed to 
traditional ticket taking. 

The weekend began off beauti- 
fully, a bit chilly, but the sun shined 
all day. Each hour of the dav was 
jam-packed with exhibits, shows, and 
entenainment. The team made sure 
the public was aware of the different 
forms of amusement through 
announcements from the informa- 
tion bootli. 



Unfortunately, the weather did 
not hold up all weekend. Sunday 
was cold and rainv. However, the 
bad weather did not discourage 
the public to come out for the 
event. 

.\11 in all, A-Day was a 
complete success and the exec 
team is looking to futher improve 
the event for the next vear. 



'The best part about A-daj is the 
after party, all that work reallj seems 
to pay off in the evening hours... ''

rience. It should be in the crate.

Resident 
Advisors 



Year round, the resident advisors work 
diligentl\- to make the residence halls fun 
and enjoyable... 



On August 15, this year's residence life 
team came together for a week of intense 
mental training. The residence ad\-isors were 
greeted bv a whole new team of area coordi- 
nators with new and innovative ideas to make 
the campus even more enjoyable. 

Not onlv were there new faces in the 
professional staff, but about sixt}- percent of 
the R-.\'s were alone to the job. 

Mike Bergels, director of residence Ufe 
said, "there is a reason why there is a whole 
new staff" Mike was eager to introduce his 
staffs to the residence halls. "It's a new year 
with rules and new sanctions," he told his 
staffs during training. 

With the changes came a change of format 
for training. This year the RA's endured a 
longer, more information filled week. Al- 
though training was certainly intense, the RAs 
and professional staff made room for fun 
icebreakers and lots of joking around. 

The IL\s certainly had a blast working 
together with residence life to create a year full 
of f\in and exciting memories.

With the scoop of a single shovel of dirt, construction began on 
a new residence hall this school year. The new hall will house 200 
students in the fall of 2004 and over 300 in the fall of 2005. Once 
construction is finished, older residence halls such as Wolfsohn and 
Elson will be taken off the line and refurbished; we all know how 
much these halls need refurbishing. The new hall will have four- 
person suites and two-person suites. All suites will be fully carpeted 
and contain their own bathroom. There will be laundry facilities at 
each wing of the hall as well as a lounge on the first floor which will 
serve as a meeting area. A fitness facilit}' will be available for students 
who choose to live in this hall. A 24-hour security guard will be on 
dut\- to keep watch over the new building. The price to pay for a new 
hall isn't just monetary. From the gas lines that were hit during 
freshman move-in, to the 5 a.m. mornings and never-ending noise 
resonating from the construction area, everyone on campus has been 
touched by this project. Some may consider this an advancement to 
be a nuisance, but we all know the finished product will be a new staple 
of DVC Pride...

It has been an honor and a privilege to have sen-ed 
as your 2003-2004 Suident Government Presi- 
dent. It has been a long journey, six years to be 
exact, and oh how the time has tlcnvn by. If I have 
learned one thing during my own personal "jour- 
ney" at Delaware Valley College it is that nothing 
can ever prepare us for the future. Winston (Churchill 
once said, "This is not the end, nor is this the 
beginning of the end, perhaps instead, it is the end 
of the beginning." Go forth with the knowledge 
\ou have gained, and good luck with your fumre 
endeavors.

I never expected to gain the familv and friends that 
college would send mv wav prior to entering Del ^'al. 
However, now that mv time is up, I can't imagine life 
without them. We have been through mj much 
together. From helping each other through 9/11 and 
remembeiing it each \ear to sending our friends off 
to war, we have bonded more than I thfjught pos- 
sible. I trulv believe from the bottom of my heart that 
none of us would be who we are had Del \'al not 
entered our lives. \X'e may not alwa\s have seen it 
that wav, but looking back, I value e\en- experience 
we've had. So, I embrace those changes and wel- 
come the next to come. Remember, if you do what

Makes each day a constant battle

Just have faith in yourself. 

I will always have faith in you.

"Although physically we may be seperated, we will always remain 
together in spirit..." 

~Anonymous 



I recall my middle school years, specitlcally the conclusion of the 7''' grade. My fellow classmates and 1 were extremely 
eager to be entering the 8 grade. 1 remember many were thrilled to be nearing the end of our middle school careers, others were 
eager to "rule the school." Personally, I was excited to join the 8* grade yearbook staff. Ha! Little did I knov\ that the simple yearly 
publication would consume ALL of my free time. After school, I'd literally n.m to my history classroom, where the yearbook was 
operated. From 3PM to 5PM. Monday through Friday, I'd sit at a desk measuring pictures, cropping, cutting and pasting layouts. 
The final publication was awesome and I was thrilled that each S"" grade student would forever hold the memories of their childhood 
in an 80 page hardcover. Though it was incredibly time consuming. I would never have traded the experience. Then at club and 
organization night, my friend Tess and 1 were presented with outstanding leadership in yearbook club. 1 w as ecstatic to be recognized 
for such an honor. 

Three years later. 1 found myself preparing for my second yearbook publication. Again, only graduates were able to work 
on stafl". However, my high school offered a precursor, "Yearbook I" class. There, we learned the basic techniques for creating a 
yearbook, measurement in picas, layout design, and programming features. Again. I showed incredible interest in production and 
was asked to be Editor in Chief for my senior class yearbook. For a second time, 1 was not eager to "rule the school", 1 was excited 
to rule the yearbook. 

Through excellent advisorship, I was able to learn the ins and outs of yearbook production. Once again, the yearbook 
became my life. At ail times, I carried a camera in hand. J will admit, my high school publication was less physical work than my 
middle school, however important deadlines made the production highly stressful. We finished the yearbook with time to spare. 
It was completely revamped from the previous year, new layouts, new themed graphics, and of course two extra signatures of color. 
1 had the same feelings towards my senior yearbook as I did my 8"' grade book, each was a record of memories for the graduates 
to keep. 

Then came Del Val. I swore to myself that my yearbook days were over, but as you all know . that was simply not the case. 
In fact. I wonder if my excitement has grown since my earlier yearbook days. 

When it came time to start planning for this year's yearbook, I began stressing over theme choice. I remember discussing 
its development with my cover editor Frank Fasanella in mid March. Suddenly, he shouted, "1 got ill... Putting It Together]" From 
there, we contemplated other concepts that could be featured in the book that related to the theme. We soon realized how well the 
theme applied to Delaware Valley College. Administrators, faculty, staff, and students are constantly combining their efforts for 
the improvement of this institution. The Cornucopia knew that it was important for us to finally capture this concept of 
"togetherness". Thus, as you may have notices, there are many spreads that show the school working together for a common goal. 

Over the summer. I developed the 
layouts for this year's book and sifted 
through thousands of quotes to tlnd the 
perfect ones to place on the divider sheets. 
Our eerie opcniny quote uas actually not 
taken from a alumni ol Del \al. In fact, a 
man who lives in South Georgia, with no 
relationship to the college, spoke of his own 
relationship withm a Christian community. 
I .'■ i> ilahbergasted by the distinguishing 
The concluding quote was 
taken from the original score of the play 
'■Puiiinj it Together". The Cornucopia

It was certainly a blast "putting together" this book. I 
would like to thank a number of people for keeping me in line, 
making sure I made it to scheduled photos, and helping me with 
all types of production. First, to the Administration, Faculty 
and Staff; You keep this institution moving, without your facili- 
tation and guidance, none of us would be able to achieve our 
goals. To the Student Government Board, especially the exec 
team. Harry, Scuba, Julie, Krystal, and Karol and the class of 
2004. Tim, Meredith, Jess, Andrea, and Kristi: Thank you for 
all your support over the years. Your small contributions made 
a huge difference. To all Club & Organizations, and the RA 
staff: Thank you for being so accommodating to all my photo 
needs. You guys are the best! To Mrs. Donigan, Jim Linden, 
Mrs. Klassig and Mr. Lawrence: Thank you for all your 
support. Your help and direction keeps me focused. To the 
Cooke girls: You all have affected my life is such a wonderful 
way. I cannot thank you all enough for all your support and 
sympathy! You are my girls! To my friends: You are my life 
support. Thank you for putting up with my unfocused, crazed 
life! To my Roomies, past and present: Thank you for sticking 
by my side through all the rough times, for playing spades during 
the early hours, and for listening to my silly stories. Thank you 
for being my secretaries, even though you truly never knew where 
1 was. To my staff: Matthew: you certainly can write up a storm. 
Your captions made this book fun and intriguing. Not to mention, 
you always make me smile! To my Berk girls, Jen, Janelle, and 
Lauren: Thanks for always being there for all the odds and ends. 
You all were my lifesavers. To Lee and Colby: I knew during the 
production of your first layout that you both had an excellent eye 
for cropping and picture placing. I am confident that your 
strengths will only improve over the next three years. To Katie: 
Thanks for taking care of things for the past two years! Noelle: 
My little Del Val paparazzi, 1 knew the day I met you and your 
mother during freshman move-in that you would be my left hand. 
Good luck! Kristi: Love, 1 cannot thank you enough! You kept 
me in line, you kept me sane, you saved my butt, and you helped 
me more than you will ever know. You are amazing, never forget 
that! Frank: You and I share the same outlooks (most of the time 
©). You tnily made this book unique. You have so many 
amazing ideas, I just wish 1 was able to execute them all! I love 
you! And finally, to the recipients of this year's book: Keep 
your memories in a safe place, lock them away in your heart and 
mind and never forget them. -Alicia M. Gn'sko
