A few common sights around campus are the famous peacocks and the even more famous Billy. Billy
is always there with his smiling face and an enthusiatic "Hey! How's it going?" while the peacocks,
unfortunately, may not be as eager to say hi to those passing by. Artists creating masterpieces can
also frequently be seen with their models.
In 1973, three SMC students: Pete Sarelas,
Russell Baker and Dale Rausch had the idea to
create a longer and larger race than the regular
dinghy regattas. In 19 7 4, their idea became
reality when 47 boats entered the 70-mile course
from Annapolis to St. Mary's City. A race from
the present capital to the colonial capital, also
the location of St. Mary's College of Maryland.
The race has become a SMC tradition as well as
a tradition for many in the racing world, with
an incredible post-race party. In June 1986,
Yacht Racing and Cruising (now Sailing World)
named Governor's Cup one of the top ten post-
race parties in the sailing world. (Finally, some
acurracy in the parrying status of SMC!!) Being
one of the biggest, if not the biggest, event
hosted by the College, it will surely continue it's
"December 5, 1996 ar the Statehouse in Annapolis, Governor Glendening announced that
Dr. Jane Margaret (Maggie) O'Brien was named the next president of St. Mary's College of
Maryland. After 13 years of dedicated service to St. Mary's College, Dr. Edward Lewis retired
and passed the presidency to Dr. O'Brien. Over the last ten years, the College, under the
leadership of Dr. Lewis, has recruited 45 faculty members, with 97 percent now holding a
doctorate of the terminal degree in their field; increased the student SAT average from about
950 to 1215; doubled the size of the library and constructed a new 60,000 square-foot state-
of-the-art science building; renovated existing dormitories and built 81 townhouse units for
student housing; and increased private support of the College from $44,00 to $1.5 million
annually. Dr. O'Brien was unanimously elected by the St. Mary's College of Maryland board
of trustees. O'Brien holds a bachelor' degree in biochemistry (1975) from Vassar College and
a doctorate in chemistry (1981) from the University of Delaware. She served on the faculty
of Middlebury College (Vt.) from 1980 through 1991, moving up the ranks to become
associate professor of chemistry and dean of the faculty. She served as dean from 1989-91,
when she became president of Hollins College. She is the first female president at the
institution in more that 25 years." --From a December 5, 1995 Press Release
Welcome Maggie and Thank you Ted!!!
Dr. Lewis stands proudly next to his portrait which was painted by his son, Steven. This portrait is
hanging on the wall in the library next to the past leaders of St. Mary's. Dr. & Mrs. Lewis are quite the
athletic type, jogging in the Farewell to Ted Run. Thanks for your many years of dedication to SMC.
The complaint "there 's nothing to
do here " unfortunately can be
heard quite often on our beauti-
ful campus. Yes, it's true, there
are no shopping malls, or even
that much of a nightclub to go
dancing at that's under an hours
drive away. None of that stops
the majority of our students
from finding the many things
there are to do on our campus.
A glance in The Bulletin or a
call to Student Development
can give you the latest update on
campus activities. With just
about every club for every inter-
est, anyone can find something
to do. A creative, adventurous
mind is all that's needed to have

THE GREAT CARDBOARD BOAT RACE
The Great Cardboard Boat Race,
sponsored by the SMC Waterfront,
in its third year, is the most popular
activity during Parents Weekend.
Students are given 2 pieces of
carboard, 12 pieces of wood (each
about 8'xl"x2"), 3 rolls of duck tape,
2 pieces of plastic wrap (4'xl2') and
twine. With this material, they have
to construct a boat that will be able
to go to "Church Point" and back the
fasteds and without sinking in the
process. There is $1000 in the pot for
the winners of first and second place
in two divisions, sailors and non-
The waterfront is always a very interesting place to hang out. A volleyball game is a common
sight at the waterfront during nice weather. Kayak basketball, however, is a slightly different
sight, not seen quite as often but just as fun.

Many students use career day as a way to
launch their future. Having employers
from all over the state representing their
respective organizations is a great way to
make initial contacts and get your foot in

SMC DANCE '95
The dramatic arts department presented SMC DANCE '95 in the Fall semester, a dance
concert which featured contemporary and traditional works.
Top: Cypress Creek became a very popular band in their years here, playing
every opportunity they had from SMC sponsored Brown Bag Lunches to
Razzberries to the Green Door.
Bottom: Sol Y Canto was a band brought to our school by the Foreign Language
Department giving us a taste of latino music. No one was able to sit peacefully
during the performance; everyone's toes were tapping and there was even
dancing in the aisles.

the best attended yet. Honora

master minds behind this extrava-
ganza sponsored by the SGA's
Programs Board and Student
Developments's Event Coordina-
tors. But these weren't the only
people that volunteered many hours
to make WC a success, over 40
volunteers helped put on this event
which hosted over 2000 people.
With events such as human bowl-
ing, a dunking booth, the velcro
man , the monkey man, the shadow
who followed you around, and
many more sights to be had. Many
live bands such as Jay-Jay, Swampp,
Julius Bloom, Scrooby Groove, Hit
Me and the new hit Jewel! A good
time was all but garanteed.
Many students got to enjoy
the beautiful weather and
good music at World Carni-
val . The brave ones even
tried out the Human Fly. A
huge velcro bouncy thing that
was a sight to see and even
more fun to do!!
Watch out for the iron ball that
might come rolling down the waterfront
hill at you if you're not careful. This
was another way to entertain us at

campus lives. From the officers unlocking our doors for us
when we get locked out to solving crimes, they are well
respected and needed. They are a 24 hour service with 4
Public Safety officers and 3 sworn Police officers, full- and

assistants (Nighthawks as we know them). The are

It was a great year for the athletes here at
St. Mary's College. School spirit grew
among the students as well as
the faculty. Several sports were
added to the Varisty list. Field
Hockey was only one of them.
Several sports are still only club
sports. The athletes that
participate in these clubs take
pride in their games and do just
as much work as any varsity
player. Men's and women's
rugby, men's volleyball, and
crew are among the most
popular of these club sports. Although they
have not yet been recognised as varsity
sports, the active participants will suredly be
fighting for acceptance.
Besides the addition of
sports, we had several awards
and records broken over the
course of the year. Cindy
Davenport broke the record
for the most shots made
during a woman's four years
here at St. Mary's. Overall, it
was a very productive year for
the athletes and their coaches.
Whether you're playing the
game or just watching, have lots of fun.
Rugby players are probably the roughest players out there. Well, next to football
players. But these guys don't wear and protection. And to think that they are
only a club. With it's growing popularity, rugby will more than likely be a
varsity sport within the near future.
The many clubs here at
SMC are one of the things
that makes life so interest-
ing. Having a wide range of
clubs to choose from, stu-
dents can find other people
who share similar
interests. Anywhere from
