Ducks floating in the 
pond, with the science 
building in the 
background, is a com- 
mon sight. It is also a 
common noise, particu- 
larly at 6:00 am. 

The Shoe Tree, located on the 
path between PG and 
Dorchester, has quite a history, 
and an odor. It is said that when 
students graduate, they throw 
their old shoes up into the tree. 

Sarah Young, Cindy King, Amy 
Cox, Carly Treppi, Christi 
Martinson, Jen Dickons, and 
Brian Doss, are the SOS staff in 
DC, relaxing for a little cool off 

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. 

Governor's Cup 

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 
successful tradition. 

"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 



Having these very "innocent" 

looking young men meeting and 

greeting the incoming students, 

can very easily make parents 

wonder what's really going on in 

the "jungle" behind those ties 

and smiling faces. Dorchester is 

the only all-male residence hall. 

Within these halls, guys will be 

making long lasting friendships 

and bonding all through the

Pillows that will be used 
during the day, computer 
keyboards that will be busy 
the night before the paper's 
due, and fans to help control 
the sweltering heat of the 
residence halls during the 
hotter months are just a few 
common things you'll see 
within the dorms. 



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. 


Kavaking has become a very popular 
pastime, ever since the waterfront 
introduce them. It can be a very 
peaceful activity, or a very wet and 
entertaining time. 
P.S. Proper kayak safety should 
always be observed for fear of the 
Waterfront Staff. 





'95 "> 

SMC students are very active 

in supporting many causes. 

Umar Hasan, the former 

Assistant Director of Student 

Development and Director of 

Forensics, is remembered by 

students and friends in the 

AIDS Walk '95. Umar passed 

away due to AIDS on October 

24, 1994.

notice that when

Nighthawks caught sleeping on the 
job. Normally they would be out 
roaming campus until 2 a.m. 
escorting and being the eyes of 
Public Safety in those little hard to 
reach areas of campus. 

Calvert residents are revolting 
against their permanent quiet 
hours. Those rebels!!

Many students enjoyed the 

huge BUBBLIN' hot tub that 

was situated on the grassy lot 

in the middle of the dorms on 

Cu- H 

the hill. In the dead of winter, 

no one could ever imagine 


they would see so many Col-

Many students learn the tricks of the 
trade when it comes to sex from THE 
SEX GUY. His entertaining and 
laidback yet educational program, had 
many students laughing about the 
normally taboo issue of sex. 

Honors Day is well attended by many 
different students to give a wide variety 
of opinions. Also, we got a free day off 
school, since we don't believe in 
celebrating REAL holidays here at 



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 

the door. This event is sponsored by the 

Career Center, Internships, and Student 

Development. Even Ted appears at 

Career Day. Perhaps he's looking for a 

new job once he retires from SMC?!?! 


Paul Schultheis teaches students 
about basic cat maintance and how 
to fix minor car problems yourself. 

POW Eugene McDaniel tells students 

about his experiences in Vietnam, 

where he was a POW for seven years. 

He lectured on the forgotten POW's 

of our country and what it means to 

be an American and National Pride. 

He is very active in educating the 

public and lobbying to make sure 

that the Federal Government 

doesn't ignore our POW's. 



Since all of us, at one time or 
another, have eaten in the dining 
hall, we all know the ups and 
downs of the food. However, 
Rita can always be counted on to 
bring a smile to your grimacing 
face with her friendly "Hey 
Baby!" Some exciting new and 
improved food tables are the ice 
cream machine and the new salad 
bar island. The Woods Company 
is making an effort to make 
our dining hall a more plea- 
surable experience. 



Happy Ends, the Fall 95 

melodrama with songs, was 

presented by the drama 

department. Music by Kurt 

Weill and lyrics by Bertolt 

Brecht, the original german 

play was by Dorothy Lane. A 

little triva fact for drama fans: 

it was actually written by 

Bertolt Brecht and he gave the 

credit to Dorothy Lane.

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.

Cary Fentzloff,

World Carnival is quickly becom- 
ing a favorite activity here at SMC. 
This was the third year for WC and 
the best attended yet. Honora 
Batelka and Heather Davis were the 
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 

College, human bowling! 

Shindana Cooper is the storyteller who 

entertained us in Lower Charles and also 

at World Carnival. 




Public Safety has become a very important part of our daily 
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 
part-time radio dispatchers and student security patrol 
assistants (Nighthawks as we know them). The are 
headed by Director Harry Tafe and Assistant Director 
JoAnn Robinson with Risk Manager Flo Devine.

An Interview With Matt Hill, the Calvert Hall RHC. 

What was Calvert's most exciting dorm program/activity? 

"Mother microphone-open mic poetry/music/drama. Experience with free coffee 

and grilled cheese. We had fifty people in our rec room, on two different occasions 

for this." 

Can you describe the residents of Calvert? 

"Unique. We have a wide and diverse cross-section of students. They have a bizarre

What's the personality of Dorchester? 

"Very laid back and open-minded."

An Interview with Kazia Ostryniec, PG RHC. 

What is the atmosphere of PG? 

"PG has a fun, relaxed atmosphere. There are many sorts of 

personalities in the building, but they all have fun." 

What is an exciting PG activity. 

"Midnight breakfast. We had two Midnight breakfasts this

The sailors at St. Mary's have definately 
made a name for themselves. Over the 
past several years, our teams have begun 
well known throughout the country. 

ALthough sailors are required to put in a lot of 
time for practices and regattas, there isn't a 
sailor out there that doesn't enjoy being out 
there on the water with the wind ripping 
through their sails. 


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 
the rigorous schedule of the 
Crew Team to the laid back 
Golf Club, to the 
politically correct Young 
Republicans. You name it, 
we have it. And if we don't, 
you can create it!

The SGA is not only a very active body 
of SMC, but a great place to meet 
people and have lots of fun. Senator 
Jim Wood, President Jen Dickens, 
Kim Dennis the Right hand of SGA 
and Senator Melissa Canlas are a good 
example of this.
