St. Mary's College 



St. Mary's College 

Nothing says as much about the St. Mary's campus as 
the river does. It is one of the first things a pro- 
spective student sees, and it is the one thing that stays in 
his or her mind when they tell their friends about our 
school. Many times when St. Mary's is mentioned, 
someone will inquire "oh, the one in Emmitsburg?" And 
we will have to replay that, no, we're not the one in the 
mountains, we're the one by the river. Our reputation as 
a resort first, and a school second is largely due to the 
fact that we have the river here. Not many school can 
boast that they have what amounts to a small fleet of sail 
boats, or even a dock. We are Riverside. 

Much of what happens on campus deals directly with 
the river. Where other schools have homecomings, we 
have Riverfest. Early in the fall when the weather is still 
nice and the water is still warm, the campus turns out to 
play volley-ball, or toss the frisbee around or just sit 
around and enjoy the sun while they still can. This year 
in the Spring we had Waterfront Day, sponsored both by 
the Sailing Club and the Dorchester Dorm council; a day 
filled with sunshine and seemingly endless hours of 
tournament volley-ball. The championship games had to 
be played in the gym due to the early darkness. 

The first sunset on the river is what convinces many 
students that St. Mary's is the place for them. It is quite a 
sight to see the mixture of reds and blues and whites 
which make up a typical sunset. In the Spring it is not 
unusual to see many people standing on the edge of the 
hill by the Garden of Rememberance just to watch as 
nature puts the final touch on the day and prepares for 
the night. All of which is reflected flawlessly on the liq- 
uid canvas of the river, which flows on and on. 

Our campus, our river, our identification, this is what 
we are all about. One only has to take a walk along the 
beach on the first warm day of Spring to see how much 
the river means to the students here. We are Riverside.

This is what St. Mary's 

What makes St. Mary's what it is? It's 
not just the river, or just the spread 
out campus with open space and room to 
move. Maybe it is the people who make St. 
Mary's such a great place. No matter where 
you go on campus, you're going to run into 
someone you know or maybe even so- 
meone you don't know, and you'll nod or 
say "hello" as you pass. Even when school is 
not in session, St. Mary's people have a way 
of finding each other. If you go to the 
beach for the summer, you're almost guar- 
anteed to run into someone wearing a St. 
Mary's sweatshirt, or jacket. You just can't 
get away from them.

For some it has been only four 
years, the required four years 
that it takes to qualify for the "big 
walk." For others it is a moment 
that has been a long time coming. 
Either way, it means the same 
thing: graduation. The end of 
college and once again, a new 

Most Seniors are more than 
ready to leave when May rolls 
around; sure they will miss their 
friends and all of the good times, 
but enough is sometimes 
enough. Memories, both good 
and bad, will be taken along into 
the world which they are not a 
part of. St. Mary's has become a 
part of their lives, a part that will 
be with them forever. They will 
remember the beach and the wa- 
ter, fun times with friends and 
the tears that come with growth. 
St. Mary's is an experience; as 
Senior Gillian Faulkner put it; "I 
never knew college could be so 
much fun, and such a pain in the 
ass at the same time."

The Shoe Tree. 

Springtime comes to St. Mary's 
and the trees are in bloom 
and the flowers sprout from 
the ground once again. But, one 
does not have to wait for Spring 
to see a plant that has fruit ripe 
for picking throughout the year. 
That plant is the shoetree. It is a 
rare hybrid of the agricultural 
world in the way that shoes seem 
to grow on it. It's hard to say 
when the tradition started, but 
it's a pretty sure thing that there 
will always be a bountiful harvest 
of fashion footwear as long as the 
tree stands.

The Finishing touch 

That's it?!! 

The sun finally came out during 
May. The morning of Saturday 
the thirteenth was a mixture of 
bright sunshine and a warm 
breeze blowing off the river. It 
had rained all week, dampening 
just about everyone's Seniorweek 
festivities. There was talk of hold- 
ing graduation in the gym instead 
of on the townhouse greens as 
had been done the previous year. 
Seniors began to worry about the 
chance that some of the people 
who they had invited to watch the 
commencement might not even 
be able to see it, due to the limit- 
ed number of tickets. But the sun 
put those worries to rest, gradua- 
tion was held outside under a 
beautiful blue sky with bleached 
white clouds floating softly over- 

Now the Seniors minds were 
clear to think about other things, 
namely, what happened to the last 
four years? The seemingly endless 
classes had indeed ended, dawn 
had broken on the all-night par- 
ties, the dorm and townhouse 
rooms were empty. Friends 
hugged each other good-bye with 
promises to write, and stay in 
touch, and to never forget. 

The Summer line-up of fashions. 


Graduation 1989 

Peggy Fowler concedes her tail in honor of graduating. Last minute advice, or the last good-bye? 


Looking back and forward at the same time. 

Let's see it Grimace, one more time. 




Living at SMC 

Home at school 

Walk into any room on the St. Mary's campus 
and just by looking around you can tell a lot 
about the people living there. Some of the rooms are 
so empty that it would appear as if the occupants 
lived somewhere else and just used the room for 
sleep. Other rooms are so full of junk that it is almost 
impossible to walk around in them. The dorm rooms 
and townhouses are more than just a place where 
students sleep and study, these rooms are the homes 
away from home for the seventy percent of full-time 
students who live on campus. Students take what the 
school provides, and then build from there. It's not 
unusual to find a couch or love-seat or even an easy 
boy in a typical room. And because of the river, even 
a sailboard or two won't raise an eyebrow. A stu- 
dent's room is his or her one real source of privacy 
on the campus, and whatever can be done to make it 
more comfortable, is usually done.

The townhouses provide a backdrop for winter fun. 

Townhouses end 
second Year 

The Spring of 1989 saw the 
end of the second year of 
student residence in the town- 
houses. After two years, one 
thing has become clear; if you 
don't want to live in the dorms 
anymore, and you really don't 
want to move off campus, the 
townhouses are the right alter- 
native. When the option of 
townhouse living was opened 
to students in the Spring of 
1987, they were skeptical. In 
fact, there were not enough in- 
terested students at the time to 
fill all of the rooms. Things have 
certainly changed since then 
though. Now there is a waiting 
list of students who are looking 
for something different in the 
place where they live.

Living with 
the Townhouses 

In the Spring of 1988 when it 
was announced that the com- 
mencement ceremonies would 
not be held on the State House 
lawn in Historic St. Mary's City, 
the news was received with mixed 
reactions. The new location 
would be the townhouse greens, 
what some seniors saw as a further 
attempt by the school to show off 
its new 'toys.' Others had bad 
feelings about what seemed to be 
the alienation of the schools asso- 
ciation with St. Mary's city in gen- 
eral. Now, one year later, the 
rumblings have been forgotten, 
the rumpled feathers have been 
smoothed. Graduation went off 
pleasantly and now the town- 
house lawn has become part of 
the tradition.

Your room-mate 

Who will ever forget their first day at St. Mary's 
when they met . . . the room-mate? Most 
students haven't shared a room since they were 
seven or eight years old, and suddenly they are ex- 
pected to deal with another living, breathing hu- 
man being living in the same room with them. It is 
an experience to say the least. The first couple 
weeks are spent on best behavior, until one room- 
mate or the other gets comfortable enough, and 
then the real person comes through. Room-mates 
aren't the end of the world, sometimes they can be 
the start of something big, perhaps your closest 
friend, or perhaps a life-long enemy. You find 
yourself asking questions like; "Do I look that bad 
in the morning," or "Do I treat people like that?" 
Either way, for at least a semester, you're stuck with 

Some room-mates present special problems.

Hell for what? The infamous Dorchester. 


Sweet Dorm 


The source of sleepless nights. 

Fun with Peacocks 

Dorm Dwellers were 'privileged' this year to ex- 
perience something a bit different namely, 
peacocks in heat. Picture this: It's four o'clock on a 
Sunday morning, you finally make it back to your 
room, or a room, depending on your night, and fall 
face-first into bed and fall asleep. A half-hour later, 
you hear someone holding a cat by its tail and 
swinging it around over their head. You listen to 
the screams of agony for a couple minutes, and 
then it hits you (no, not the cat), it's those (explica- 
tive removed) peacocks yelling about their sexual 
frustration again. You ponder your options, and 
realize there are none, like your room-mate, you 
are stuck with the peacocks. Because yes, it is ille- 
gal to hunt peacocks in Maryland. Just hope there 
aren't more babies next year.

When you look at the above picture, you 
might think that is some kind of joke, or 
maybe just a very unmotivated hall. It is a joke 
of sorts, but more of what the hall called a pro- 
test. As everyone knows by now, there will be 
no girls living on the third floor Calvert next 
year. Calvert will become a 24 hour 'living 
learning center.' This is the brain-child of Resi- 
dence Life for this year; put the people who 

want to study all in the same dorm, to increase 
productivity, or something like that. Like other 
changes that have been made on the St. Mary's 
campus, the student population wasn't too 
thrilled about the prospect of Calvert going 
co-ed, especially for a permanent 'study hall.' 
Will this be the end of the 'Virgin Vault?' Only 
time will tell. Some say that it will remain, only 
now some of the virgins are guys. 

St. Mary's Best 

The Dorchester 

Dorchester. The name strikes terror into 
every young girls heart, or at least the 
guys living there would like to think it does. 
Walking up the path on the side of the 
dorm, you can see the motto (or moto, as 
the graffitist spelled it) Hell for Bitches. The 
fact that it is an all-guys dorm lends to its 
reputation. Tour guides don't take their 
tours into Dorchester, as if it weren't safe for 
common people to enter. Dorchester, which 
once held the title of the most damage-rid- 
den dorm on campus has now bowed to 
Caroline with its infamous first right. Even 
third right has become a place where a girl 
can walk along without worrying about what 

will happen to her, well, almost anyway. One 
thing has remained the same; there is pride 
in living in Dorchester, it is, as the sweatshirt 
claim, St. Mary's finest. It takes a certain kind 
of person to live here, a kind of person that 
most would call crazy, but people living 
there don't think so. Dorchester has its own 
process of weeding out, if a person has a 
problem with living on a rowdy hall, they 
will usually move to P.G. or Caroline where 
they will be more comfortable. And if they 
cause more trouble than is necessary, resi- 
dence life weeds them out. All in all, it isn't a 
bad place to live, if you can get used to the

Queen Anne 

The girls' Alone 

If you're a girl and you just can't handle liv- 
ing co-ed, and Calvert is too far away, your 
ideal choice is Queen Anne. Queen Anne is 
close to 'the hill', but not too close, it's pret- 
ty much the center of campus. Having an all- 
girls dorm away from the rest of the dorms 
has been the subject of some trouble with 
townies in the past, but for the view of both 
the river and St. John's Pond, Queen Anne 
can't be beat. Just as the Calvert girls have 
their reputation, Q.A. girls have the reputa- 
tion of being stuck-up, although it all de- 
pends on who you know in the dorm.

The Winter of 
. . . the Snow 

There was something unusual about the 
Winter of 1988-89, something that set it 
apart from the Winters of years past. This 
mysterious something really isn't that mys- 
terious at all, it was the snow. Not that it 
doesn't snow in Southern Maryland, it just 
doesn't usually snow that much. Two com- 
plete days of classes were cancelled, along 
with a handful of stray classes, usually can- 
celled because the professor didn't want to 
brave the elements to get to school. 

The best storm, or the worst, depending 
on how you look it, would have to be 
theone on February 23, and 24. The weather 
service had been calling for snow all day, but 
by 10:00 Thursday night, all we had gotten 
was flurries, not nearly enough to justify not 
going to the Barn and seeing Crankshaft. 
Even after the show let out at 2:00 in the 

morning there really wasn't any snow to 
speak of. But by 3:00 the weathermen were 
proved right, an inch and a half of snow had 
fallen in an hour, and it showed no signs of 
letting up. By 4:00 three inches had fallen 
and still it came down. It really wasn't a sur- 
prise to anyone when they got up Friday 
morning and a sign had been posted on the 
bath-room door announcing that classes for 
the day had been cancelled. The day-off was 
put to good use by the students, mostly by 
catching up on precious sleep lost by late- 
night partying. The snow continued to fall 
until sometime after 1:00 Friday afternoon, 
with a total accumulation of more than 
twelve inches. It was a snow that delivered as

Seniors Night Out 


Do you remember the Senior 
Gala? If you weren't there it 
will probably be pretty hard to re- 
member what happened that 
night, heck, even if you were 
there, it might be pretty hard to 
remember exactly what hap- 
pened. Do you remember dress- 
ing up for the last dinner that you 
would eat prepared by the 'Mar- 
riott college food corporation?' 
Girls in dresses, guys in ties, no 
longer playing grown-ups, but ac- 
tually being grown-up. Do you re- 
member buying a drink in the 
lower commans of Montgomery 
hall, when for half of the year you 
couldn't even drink with your 
door open? Do you remember 
how it felt to be two days away 
from freedom, two days away 
from actually having to admit that 
maybe it is time to find not just a 
job, but a career? Do you remem- 
ber trying to blot all of that out 
with 'liquid amnesia?' And on top 
of all of that, how it felt waking up 
the next morning? But that was all 
right, because after four years, 
you had at least earned that. Your 
final hurrah before mom and dad 
got there for the finishing touch,

Student Life 



What else? 

It may strike some people as kind of 
weird to have a section called 'student 
life/ because after all, what else is the 
book about. Not much, and that is the way 
it should be. The yearbook is a reflection 
of what goes on at St. Mary's during the 
year, and the student life section affords 
an opportunity to tell the story of college 
with a little more depth and insight, not to 
mention the fact that it gives me an op- 
portunity to throw a bunch of pictures on 
a page and take up some room. Just kid- 
ding, but barely. 

To the average St. Mary's student, the 
most important part of the yearbook is the 
page that they are mentioned on, or the 
picture they happen to be in, and that is 
mostly what the student life section is 
about, giving everyone a chance to see 
themselves in the yearbook, sometimes in 
pictures that they did not even know I

Dateline: St. Mary's. "Hundreds turn 
out to get a glimpse of smoke as it 
rises from Montgomery Hall." October 
thirteenth 1988 was just another Thursday 
on the St. Mary's College campus; the offi- 
cial start of the weekend, students making 
and confirming plans for the weekend, 
and somewhere, someone quietly scoop- 
ing sand into a bucket in preparation for 
the Second Right Dorchester Beach party. 
Little did anyone know, or even suspect 
that the night would end with flashing 
lights and sirens, and it wouldn't be the 
Coast Guard or the cops this time. 

We join the story at about 12:30am in 
Second Right Dorchester. The Beach party 
has been very successful, and things are 
starting to wind down. Until the supply ran 
out, everyone who showed up got leid, as 
the posters promised. A series of fire 
alarms began the after-party clearing up 
process, and the hall emptied out. When 
the last alarm was turned off, one could 
hear another alarm going off somewhere 
else; Montgomery Hall to be exact. Al- 
though reports are vague at best, eyewit- 
nesses claimed they hadn't the slightest 
idea what was going on, and they also had 
nothing to do with it. The quote of the 
night came from a nameless upperclassman 
who said that a building fire brings the stu- 
dents together, and one should be held 
every week. 

Be the first on your block to have one.

Every Fall, and then again in the Spring, ei- 
ther the gym or St. Mary's Hall is the 
sight of what has become a St. Mary's tradi- 
tion: Airband. An explanation of what air- 
band is, or what goes on during one 
shouldn't be necessary, as just about every 
St. Mary's student has either seen one, or 
participated in one. Airband takes lip-sync- 
ing to a new height, putting St. Mary's raw 
talent in the spotlight and entertaining the 
sizeable crowd that shows up. Anyone who 
can sign their name on the roster hanging in 
the information booth can get themselves or 
their act on stage. There is usually a cash 
prize for the winning act, which, for the 
Spring show, was a rendition of Def Lep- 
pard's "Pour some Sugar on Me," pictured 
on the previous page. 


Our Governing Body 

S.G.A.'s dauntless leader, Tracy Lee Lapeirre. 

Glenn and Jessica, and the meeting just started. 

NOTICE: what you are about to read is 
my personal account of S.G.A. I prob- 
ably shouldn't take advantage of my position 
as Dove Editor to write this, but I'll sign it 
anyway. What's this you say? You've never 
been to an open S.G.A. meeting? How do 
you ever find out what is going on at St. 
Mary's without attending these meetings? 
Well, because I was the editor of the fine 
yearbook, I had the great pleasure of being 
able to attend (nearly) every open meeting, 
so I will relate what I saw happening so you 
will have a taste for it next year when you go 
back. On top of that, thanks to Chris Witzgall 
and the photo club's new camera, I can sup- 
ply pictures of a typical exciting evening with 
the S.G.A. 

If you look at the pictures and it appears 

that nothing is happening, you have to un- 
derstand that the pictures are only a thou- 
sandth of a second of the real action, to fully 
appreciate it you really have to see it live. A 
typical meeting will be filled with oratory of 
the highest order on such subjects as getting 
"Duck Crossing" signs for route 5 where it 
crosses the campus. But I really have no right 
to be sarcastic about the S.G.A., because 
somewhere along the way, everything that 
happens on campus went through the S.G.A. 
first. Everything. Including the concerts and 
the new food service.

Name two things that go to- 
gether as well as Thursday 
night and partying. If you said 
The Blarney Rock Pub and 
Chocolate Crankshaft, you are 
not alone. One of the biggest 
complaints about the St. Mary's 
campus in the past has been 
that there really isn't anything 
to do on the weekends here, 
much less on the week nights. 
Well, for this year at least, 
things changed. Chocolate 
Crankshaft (or Lobsters of Soul, 
or Vexor Valves, depending on 
which members of the band 
happened to be performing) 
was here to give us something 
to do on our Thursday nights. 
Something that didn't cost too 
much and also wasn't too far 
from campus. 

The first night Crankshaft 
played, it was to a nearly empty 
bar with a few people from 
school and a few 'regulars.' But, 
by their third show, the band 
was bringing in quite a crowd, 
and people were finally danc- 
ing. By the end of February, 
Crankshaft had collected their 
own ragtag group of 'regulars.' 
Although the name of the 'club' 
changed again; this time from 



the Village Barn to the Blarney 
Rock Pub, Thursday nights con- 
tinued to be known as 'Barn 
Nights.' Finally St. Mary's stu- 
dents got a chance to meet and 
talk outside of the campus re- 
strictions, but still not far away. 
Incidentally, Chocolate 
Crankshaft have been: Art 
Renkwitz, Sam Jannotta, Tom 
Neff, and John Irvine. (Thanks 
for the pics and info John) 




Friends till 
the End 

What can you write about friends at St. 
Mary's? Most of what is shared by 
people in this school is beyond description 
in words. College is four (well, at least four) 
intense years of growth and change; getting 
away from the parents, and family in general, 
being your own. But what happens when 
you realize that you miss the same people 
that you couldn't wait to get away from? You 
make a new family at school, and call them 
your friends. More than likely most of us 
don't put our real families through half as 
much as we put our friends through, but still 
they stand by our sides and try to keep an 
eye on us. Suddenly, the friends we had in 
high school seem so young, they don't seem 
so much like 'family.' They haven't seen what 
happens now.

Goodbye, Mrs. Wolf. 

Mrs. Wolf amid Christmas decorations. 

Opinions about Marriott's food service 
varied from person to person, but 
the one thing that everyone agreed on was 
that Mrs. Wolf made the sandwich bar 
what it was. This was Mrs. Wolf's last year 
working at St. Mary's, and she was missed 
within days of leaving. The back room just 
wasn't the same without her there serving 
with a smile and never too busy to take 
the time to ask everyone was, and also to 
take the time to listen to the answer. She 
was a mom away from home for a lot of 
people, it fit her.

her last day.

Hello. Is anybody reading this anymore, 
or is everyone just looking at the pic- 
tures now and saving the words to read 
sometime in the future? If everyone is just 
looking at the pictures now, these next four 
pages are just the place to look. The pictures 
that are (apparently) thrown haphazardly 
over the next few pages were all given to the 
Dove over the year by students that wanted 
them to appear in the yearbook. I owe the 
people who trusted me (for better or worse) 
with their photographic memories a lot, 
without some of the pictures that Joanie col- 
lected for me in the S.G.A. office, there 
would be huge holes in this book. I would 
guess that the main reason for submitting 
pictures to the Dove is to try to assure a 
place for them and their friends in the book. 
Well, I'm going to try. These pictures 
wouldn't fit in anywhere else, so here they 
are. Thanks to everyone who submitted. Es- 
pecially Paul, Donna and Don.
