To the members of the Curry College Class of 2000: 

I am pleased to bring the official greetings of the College. 

Curry College is a great institution. It's the people that make it such a wonderful College, and you 

are among those people. For that, I thank you. 

Your relationship with Curry is a lifelong one. We will be here to assist you in the future as you go 

forward. Please don't hesitate to contact us. We would ask that you stay involved with the College. 

During your tenure at Curry, you saw tremendous progress at the College. Working together as

All of you have much to be proud of. Congratulations and best wishes for continued success.

If you build it... 
they will come.' 

On August 30th, 1999, Curry College opened 
the doors to a brand new $5.5 million resi- 
dence hall. The day consisted of a number of 
speakers, a ribbon cutting ceremony, a recep- 
tion in the lounge, as well as tours of the new 
building. The suite style building houses 147 
students in six-room suites. Five Resident 
Assistants and the Assistant Director of Resi- 
dence Life also occupy the building. Presi- 
dent Kenneth Quigley was very excited about 
the new building. "This is the first new 
building to be built at Curry College since the 
Drapkin Student Center was constructed in 
1970. The building was a welcome addition 
to the Curry College campus," stated Quigley. 

Cutting Edge 

President Quigley, John Santilli 
(Chairman of the Board), Robert 
O'Connell (holding Bob Jr.), and John 
Fish (President, Suffolk Construction) 
officially open the new residence hall. 

Presidential Address 

President Quigley addresses the 
crowd during the ribbon cutting cer- 
emony. The crowd included mem- 
bers of the faculty, staff. Board of 
Trustees, and community members. 

Picture Perfect 

Opening day finally arrived for the 
new suite style residence hall. Stu- 
dents, faculty, staff, and Milton com- 
munity members had an opportunity 
to view the new building inside and 


A dump truck makes it way to the 
new building for final preparations 
before the students arrived.

Curry College and the William Barton 
Rogers School have been academic part- 
ners for more than 20 years. The Gear 
Up program is a partnership funded by 
the U.S. Department of Education to 
encourage inner city and at-risk middle 
school students to attend college. Curry 
College faculty, staff and students serve 
as tutors and mentors to strengthen aca- 
demic skills and self-esteem for the sev- 
enth and eighth graders. The program 
is one of 11 partnerships in the Boston 
area under the auspices of the Boston 
Higher Education Partnership. Rogers 
Middle School graduates of this pro- 

gram may qualify for scholarships to 
Curry College. 

Rogers Middle School was the host of 
the official kick-off for the program on 
March 1, 2000. Gear Up Coordinator 
Judith Sanford-Harris, Curry College 
President Kenneth K. Quigley Jr., Rogers 
School Principal Michael McCarthy,

The Institutional Committee on 
Diversity was hard at work 
during the 1999-2000 school 
year preparing Diversity Din- 
ners for both the spring and fall 
semesters. The committee has 
the task of working with other 
campus groups to provide the 
Curry College Community 
with a variety of quality pro- 
grams. These programs seek to 
foster a wider understanding 
and appreciation of diversity 
issues. The fall dinner took 

place on November 18 and 
showcased the great sounds of 
the band Rumbafrica. The 
spring dinner showcased the 
music of the Brazilian Culture 
Center band. Sodexho provided 
and outstanding collection of 
ethnic foods for both events. 
Groups such as SGA, CAB, In- 
ternational Club, Multicultural 
Club, the President's Office, 
Dean's Office and PAL donated 
resources to make the events 
such great successes. 


Javier Garcia is taught to dance to the music during the 
spring Diversity Dinner in the Drapkin Cafeteria. The cafe 
was turned converted into a great setting for music and

Put Your Best Foot Forward 

New Students arrived on 
campus bright and early on 
Sunday, August 29. Students 
arriving with family and 
friends were greeted by 
members of the 1999 Orien- 
tation staff at almost every 
corner. The Orientation 
staff directed students to 
various parts of campus to 
attend to any loose ends 
that needed to be tied up. 
Once students had met all 
obligations they had with 
the college, they were each 
directed to their residence 
halls to meet the Residence 
Life staff. Students then 
had a chance to move their 
belongings into their new 
home and meet other mem- 

bers of their new commu- 
nity. The remainder of the 
day consisted of an all col- 
lege welcome, a good-bye 
reception for parents, and 
several programs to help 
the new students get ac- 
quainted with one another. 

Twenty Orientation 
Leaders, thirty-seven Resi- 
dent Assistants and a count- 
less number of faculty, staff 
and administrators helped 
make the next several days 
informative, educational, 
and fun. 

"I have a number of chil- 
dren in college, and this was 
the most organized Orien- 
tation I've seen," exclaimed 
one parent.

A Family Affair 

Family Weekend V9 connects families with the Curry Staff 

Family Weekend 1999 seemed 
to be a great event for all in 
attendance. The weekend be- 
gan on Friday, October 15th 
with a welcome reception at 
1000 Brush Hill Road. The 
reception was held for family, 
faculty and staff members. On 
Saturday, Families were 
treated to a Faculty Brunch 
where they were given the op- 
portunity to meet with profes- 
sors. "This was a great way for 
parents to get together with 
faculty members, ask ques- 
tions about classes as well as 
how their student is doing in a 
particular class," stated Terrie 
Daley of Parent/ Alumni Rela- 
tions. After brunch there was 
a complimentary shuttle into 
Boston to allow families to take 
in the sights. Those who chose 

not to venture into Boston were 
entertained by the Curry 
Colonel's win over Western 
New England College. 
The evening event seems to be 
the event that everyone would 
talk about. The night began 
with a cocktail reception in the 
President's Dining room. Af- 
ter the reception families were 
treated a gourmet dinner and 
a live theatre performance. The 
cafeteria was transformed into 
a beautiful array of stars, top 
hats, black lights and glowing 
curtains. The crowd was taken 
on a "Musical Journey" by the 
Riverside Dinner Theatre. The 
dance floor was then open to 
everyone, and the good times 
continued. There was never a 
dull moment during this year's 
Family Weekend!

March 16, 2000 was a night 
to remember for the mem- 
bers of the Curry College com- 
munity who helped organize 
the fashion show that took 
place in Miller Gymnasium 
at 8:30pm. This successful 
show took months of plan- 
ning and required a tremen- 
dous amount of help from ev- 
eryone involved. 

Audtions were held to 
choose models, letters were 
written to clothing stores for 
merchandise, contracts were 
signed and rehearsals were 
scheduled. The date was set 
and all of the hard work 
would soon pay off. 

Sophmore Class President 

Patricia Gonzalez stated, 
"Each committee put their 
heart and soul into promot- 
ing, designing, and organiz- 
ing the show. They were re- 
sponsible for setting up the 
stage, controlling the lighting, 
writing descriptions of cloth- 
ing, designing programs, run- 
ning late rught rehearsals and 
making countless phone calls. " 
The hardwork and dedica- 
tion certainly paid off, as the 
fashion show was one of the 
highlights of the Spring Se- 

"Every thing sounded so easy 
at the beginning. Above all, 
we had tons of fun and many 
laughs," stated Gonzalez.

CeteBnatea 25 ^ecuio. 

On April 1, 2000 WMLN passed yet another milestone by 
celebrating its 25th Anniversary. WMLN was the vision of 
Roger Alan Bump, who establish Voice at Curry (WVAC) back 
in 1971. Alan Frank, MLN's Director of Broadcasting, is the 
product of what WMLN is today. MLN signed on the air in 1975 
as a 10 watt, 25 person, student run radio station. At that time 
students would sign off the air at night or when they had class. 
Today the station is on the air 24 hours a day. Currently, MLN 
has over 100 students working within the 175 watt radio station. 

" I have been at Curry 
College and WMLN-FM for 
over 22 years. My arrival at 
Curry in September, 1977 
found a very new MLN. 
Equipment was limited, and 
there was no academic 
connections to the Communi- 
cation Department. My first 
priority was to renew the 
radio station's license. Upon 
completing the renewal, I 
offered a 1 -credit per 
semester course for all radio 
students working at WMLN. 
My third priority was to 
increase the station's support 
budget from the College, and 
the fourth priority was 
increasing power... WMLN 
has provided a service to 
Curry students and the 
communities we serve for 25 
years. The future looks very

If This Hallway Could Talk!! 

Before this hallway incorporated 91.5 WMLN, it would 
provide students of Curry College a place to relax. The 
current WMLN building was once the college's Student 
Center, a place where students could go to grab a snack, 
get out of the cold, catch up on some homework, or just 
sit with some friends before class. 





"As the station manager at 
91.5 WMLN, it is my duty to 
oversee the running of the 
radio station. The beauty of 
Curry College Radio is that the 
station is completely student 
run. Running a college radio 
station is great. We have so 
many different personalities 
here, and our personnel comes 
from many different places. 
The mixture of musical 
interest fits perfectly into our 
system. Variety is what makes 
radio great... With out WMLN 
I am not sure where I would 
be right now. Almost all of 
my accomplishments can be 
filtered back to WMLN. If 
anyone is looking for a place 
to meet new people, and have 
a great time, try radio. Thank 
you to all of you who have 
made this so special."

What makes WMLN so special is that 
the station is totally student run. In

Curry Theatre Presents 

"The Imaginary Invalid" 

Curry Theatre brought in the 1999-2000 school year with Moliere's classic The Imaginary Invalid. 
Performed in The Little Theatre over November 13'^- 16'^, John Barrett, Technical Director for Curry 
Theatre, took the helm as director. For the first time in several years, six veterans and six newcom- 
ers represented this cast of twelve actors. "If it were not for this play, I don't think I would have 
made the close friends that I have today, stated freshman Bill Skog. The cast and crew began work- 
ing on the play in late September, and spent every weekend for two months building the magnificent 
set. The fast pace humor of Moliere, plus the wit of the vivacious cast had the audience rolling in the 
aisles. Some memorable moments included The Diaphorus Boys (portrayed by Freshmen Andrew 
Harpold and Bill Skog), The Weasally Lawyer (Played by Sophomore Ryan Green), The Lovable M 
yet Cunning Maid (portrayed by Senior Katie Mello) and not to mention the Invalid himself (Junior 
Michael Adami). Seniors Katie Mello (General Manager) and Spencer Everett Jawitz (Business 
Manager) wouldn't want to open their senior year any other way!

The 1999 season looked as if it was going to be a 
repeat experience for the Curry College football 
team. The Colonels went through their schedule 
by mirroring their results from 1998, six wins 
against the same six teams and three losses against 
the same three teams. Curry's most crucial game 
took place at Salve Regina with the outcome of the 
game possibly deciding the 1999 Blue Division 
titleholder in the NEFC. In the end of the trying 
match, a school record-tying 46-yard field goal 
from rookie placekicker Bill Lovendale was the 
only scoring the Colonels would do. The 
Seahawks defeated Curry 14-3. Two weeks later 
however, the mood was decidedly more upbeat. A 
33-0 triumph over UMass Boston on November 
6th granted Curry it's first back to back winning 
season since 1986. It also happened to be Curry's 
first shutout in more then a decade. The last team 
the Colonels had to face was Umass Dartmouth, 
winning this last game would mean the difference 
between repeating last years solid record of 6-4, 
and an even better season with a record of 7-3. 
The game started out rough, but Curry came back 
fighting with touchdowns from Captain John 
Barr, and Brian Walsh. The Corsairs jumped on 
top once again until one of the most dramatic 
comeback victories in Curry Football history. 
Curry Linebacker Ranee Cooley intercepted the 
ball and ran it back 10-yards scoring for the 
Colonels and the game was Curry's with a final 
score of 21-17. Next season, the Colonels will 
strive for a "three-peat" of sorts, attempting to 
string together three consecutive winning seasons. 
Second year head coach Steve Nelson left his 
seniors with the words, "I am very proud of the 
athletes' work. The seniors this year have really 
taken the season with incredible stride."

A look back at the 1999 season. 

Rebuilding a college athletics 
program necessarily involves sea- 
sons like the one experienced by 
first-year head coach Brendan 
Donahue in 1999. His men's soc- 
cer squad worked as hard as any 
on-field rival, but came up on the 
short end of all but three contests. 
The season started promisingly, 
with a pair of scoreless ties against 
Emerson, and Anna Maria in the 
seasons first three games. But a 
school record-tying, 13-game los- 
ing streak ensued-snapped fi- 
nally on October 20th in the sea- 
sons next-to-last contest. That 
5-1 victory over Suffolk was made 
possible by sophomores Paul 
Fioretti and Peter Smith who 

90 • Curry College 

netted three and two goals respec- 
tively. Co-captain Sean Timlin had 
another busy year in goal for the 
Colonels. The junior made 191 
saves in 17 games. Timlin finished 
third in the nation with 11.2 saves 
per game. 

"My inaugural season with the 
Colonels was a struggle, but the 
foundation for future success was 
implemented," said head coach 
Donahue. "When I arrived at Curry 
team moral was low and the con- 
cept of being regionally competi- 
tive was nonexistent. Today the 
team structure is in place, and it is 
now my job to add better players." 
The Colonels will look to heavy 
recruiting in the off season. 

The right stuff 

Forward Aaron Smith practices some moves 
before the game begins. Practice and condi-

September may not have been the kindest month for the 
Colonels women's soccer squad. First year coach Danielle 
Ferrara saw her squad struggle to an 1-8-1 record that included 
six shutout losses. Progress arrived in October, however, as 
Curry posted a 4-5-1 record including a pair of 1-0 victories over 
CCC rivals New England College and Eastern Nazarene. The 
Colonels brightest star on offense was junior midfielder Donna 
Walsh, who paced the team in scoring with 26 points (12 goals, 2 
assists). Walsh led Curry's second-half surge by scoring the 
game winning goals in victories over Fitchburg State, Emerson, 
and Eastern Nazarene. At seasons end, Walsh was deservedly 
named to the CCC's all-conference second team. Rookie Alison 
Schiffman was a solid contributor in her 16 games, netting five 
goals. Junior captain Hilary Baker, junior Jill Gordon, and 
sophomore Liz Middleton all had four goals on the season. 
Goalkeeping was an unsettled affair until freshmen Aimee 
Petrosky took over the full time job in October. She performed 
well in five conference starts, finishing with a record of 2-3, an 
impressive .869 save percentage, 2.00 goals against average, and 
a pair of shutouts. Coach Ferrara concluded the season by 
saying, "After the season had come to a close, the one word that 
stuck in my mind was heart. That is what each and every athlete 
found within herself and played with every day."

The 1999 football cheerleading squad worked hard all 
season to help motivate the Colonels football team, as 
well as the faithful fans. Through the tough practices 
and the cold games, the women made it all come alive. 
Each member of the team led the crowd in cheers, 
performed stunts, and built pyramids, all while cheer- 
ing the home team toward victory. The women showed 
off their skills during home games on the sidelines as 
well as during the halftime festivities. The team was 
lead by first year coach John Gilbert. John came to 
Curry with a cheerleading background from the Uni-

coach from the Universal Cheerleading Association.

The 1999-2000 women's bas- 
ketball team experienced a 
phenomenon that, on one 
hand, may have been its best 
attribute, yet on the other hand, 
its greatest shortcoming. Over 
24 games, the Colonels had 
seven different players claim 
game-high scoring honors, 
while 10 different players took 
game high rebounding hon- 
ors. Coach Michael Barrett was 
getting contributions from his 
entire team, unfortunately, he 

never found one or two "go- 
to" players who could consis- 
tently power the offense or take 
charge of the boards. In a sea- 
son where a 6-1 8 overall record 
and a 3-9 conference record 
left many disappointed, senior 
Liz Londergan dished out her 
413 career assist, moving her 
past Colonels legend Cecilia 
Bombardier and into first place 
all-time. Londergan finished 
her four year career with 489 
total assists.

Team sports require student-athletes

Although the team had a disappoint- 
ing win-loss record, the members 
worked well together and gained 
many new skills and freindships.

The 1999-2000 Curry men's 
basketball season had its full 
complement of inspired mo- 
ments and crushing disap- 
pointments. The Colonels, 
under second year Head Coach 
Sean Casey, were expected to 
challenge for the school's first 
Commonwealth Coast Confer- 
ence Title since 1986. The 
Colonels had four of five start- 
ers returning to the fold, in- 
cluding all-conference per- 
formers and team captains Eric 
Ferris and Brian Williams. 

Although the team did not 
advance beyond the first round 
of the tournament, there were 
a number of individual accom- 
plishments that were attained. 
Both Williams and Ferris 
reached the 1,000 career mark 
during the 1999-2000 season. 
Ferris finished his Curry ca- 
reer with 1,168 points, placing 
him 8th on the all-time scoring 
list. He also set school marks 
for three-point field goal at- 
tempts in a season, three-point 
field goal attempts in a career, 
and steals.

did not show it, the Colonels made 
great strides on the field. The 
team finished with an overall 
record of 1-8. The Colonels saw 

their only win come against Sa-

The Curry College Student Government Association (SGA) is the official student governing body of 
the college. Members of SGA met every Wednesday in the basement of the Office of Student Activities 
at 2:00 P.M. to discuss issues affecting the college community. As the voice of the Curry College student 
body, SGA worked hard to build positive relationships with the faculty and staff of the college. 
Safety and Security issues were a hot topic all year for SGA members. Several campus incidents 
prompted the members of SGA to begin working closely with members of the college's Senior Staff. 
Dean Fedo, Bobby O'Connell, Gerard Linsky, Tom Butler and Michael Riley allowed students the oppor- 
tunity to express their concerns during SGA meetings. As a result of the work done by all parties in- 
volved, the college agreed to upgrade lighting and security on campus. Additional lighting, patrol 
officers and even a second guard shack were added to help maintain a safe living and learning environ- 
ment for Curry students. 

Each member of SGA was responsible for sitting on various committees throughout the year. Students 
sat on committees such as the Food Committee, Health Committee, ADA Committee, Athletic Commit- 
tee, Honorary Degree Committee, Library Committee, Posting Committee, Academic Affairs Committee, 
Undergraduate Committee, Career Development Committee, Technology Center Committee, Academic 
Policy Committee, Health and Safety Committee, Student Affairs Committee and Bachas Committee. 
Students had the opportunity to meet with faculty and staff from the college and were responsible for 
reporting back to SGA with information on what each committee was working on. 

SGA held an open forum during both the fall and spring semesters. The purpose of the forums were 
to generate questions from the students and direct them to the Senior Staff. Students had the opportu- 
nity to express concerns with Senior Staff as well as let them know what aspects of Curry College the 
students enjoy. The forums were open to the entire campus community and helped to allow open 
communication with Senior Staff. 

SGA held two Open Houses which were designed to open the Student Activities Office to students 
who may have wanted to find out a little bit about what members of the SGA did and how they repre- 
sented the student body. SGA members, faculty and staff all participated in the Open Houses to bring a 
greater awareness about SGA. 

For the third straight year, SGA sponsored a less fortunate child from outside the U.S. SGA sponsored 
two children during the 1999-2000 school year and received several cards and notes from the children. 

SGA members often volunteered their time to better themselves as well as the community. SGA 
members got involved in the Gear Up program that helped mentor seventh grade students at the Rogers 
School in Hyde Park. Members also donated time to work with a local chapter of the Special Olympics 
as well as with radio station 94.5 on the "Rock the Vote" campaign. 

SGA President Jeff Uryga and the rest of the Executive Board worked hard all year long to build a 
strong relationship between SGA and the student body. It was obvious by the success of the group that 
the Student Government Association truly was the voice of students.

club is comprised of 17 international students from IS 
countries and Puerto Rico. The Highlight of the 1999- 
2000 school year for the club was a raffle that helped raise 
over $800 for the Centro de Promocion school in Puerto 
Rico. The school has a large population of learning 
disabled students and is funded only by private dona- 
tions. The club stayed busy helping coordinate the 
Diversity Dinners and holding their annual holiday 
party at President Quigley's home. It was easy to see that 
the international students felt right at home at Curry.
