ST. MARY'S TIME 
For those students without watches, the 
clock tower was useful, if they didn't 
mind being late! 




SITTING ON THE DOCK... 

The Waterfront was a popular place for 
students to hang out. This area is one 
of the things that makes St. Mary's 
unique. 



DUCK BUTTS 

Two moons in one night. Because the 
campus is by the water, ducks and 
other critters were everywhere. 



St. Mary's College Of Maryland 1 




Hey St. Mary's, 



I would like to begin by 
offering a wholehearted Con- 
gratulations to the graduating 
Class of 1999! It's hard to be- 
lieve how fast these past four 
years have flown by. Yet no 
matter how quickly they went, I 
can honestly say that they were 
the best four years of my life. As 
Yearbook Editor and Senior 
Class Treasurer, I have gotten 
the chance over the past three 
years to meet so many of you, 
and I would like to take this op- 
portunity to thank each and ev- 
ery one of you for making my life 
here at St. Mary's so memo- 
rable. 
Don't worry, I'm not done yet. 

For all you underclassmen out there . . . have as much fun as you can and never take 
anything for granted. Don't wait until the last minute to write your Senior Seminar of St. Mary's 
Project papers. Believe me, get them done and out of the way so you can enjoy St. Mary's 
during the best time of the year. Another thing, be patient with the construction. I am so jealous 
that I won't be able to take advantage of the new Student Center. Finally, cooperate with the 
new yearbook editor. (Class of 1999 was awesome... Thank you!) This book is for you. Turn 
in pictures, send in quotes, and help them. The better your yearbook, the closer connection 
you will always with St. Mary's. 
Nope ... still not done. 

When I took over as yearbook editor three years ago, I had absolutely no idea what 
mess I was getting myself in to. Long hours in the QA basement, dead mice, hall pictures, and, 
of course, begging for money from the SGA. As I drudged through all of this, I always had 
support from the faculty, staff, and administration.* They were always there to pull some 
strings when I managed to get myself into a bind, which seemed to happen quite often. I would 
like to especially thank Andristine Robinson, the yearbook advisor, for all her help and 
guidance over the past three years. I don't know what I would have done without her. 
I am almost done. 

Now that I am graduating, I must pass the responsibility of publishing the Dove 
yearbook to yet another unsuspecting student. I hope they will try to make the most out of the 
yearbook as I have tried to do. If they don't, I'll just have to come back and whoop them in to 
shape. 

I guess that's it from me. Sit back and enjoy your 1998-1999 Dove yearbook. I onl] 
have one more thing to say... 



I LOVE YOU ST. MARY'S!!

ages. Just don't let anyone know its

to \ ie« our Famous sunsets. 



Peacocks are not the only animals that 
have made their homes here on our 



j campus. Ducks have become very com- 
fortable li\ my with our students. Stu- 
dents are often seen feeding the bread crumbs 
from their back porches. 





What Makes Us 



\The Campus\ 



SoDtfferent, 



It is so hard to find the 
right words to describe St. 
Mary's. There are so many, 
we could probably write a 
dictionary dedicated to it. No 
matter what words we use, 
the imprint that St. Mary's 
leaves in the minds of all of 
us is unforgettable. 

Remember the first 
time you drove down Rt. 5 
and came up on the college 
and saw the river to your 
right and thinking how great 
the next four years were go- 
ing to be. 

Remember the first 

\ 6 \ The Campus 



time you took a kayak or a 
paddle boat out and made 
your away under the bridge 
into the St. James Pond even 
though you knew that you 
weren't supposed to be there. 

Remember the first 
time you heard the peacocks 
early in the morning and won- 
dering what in the world was 
making that awful sound and 
then the next day trying to 
get one of their tail feathers. 

Years from now, it will 
be these little details that you 
will remember, no matter how 
hard you try to forget. 





Walking down the path from 
Dorchester, this is the view you have. 
And oftentimes, a pleasant scent that 
goes along with it. St. James Pond is 

only of St. Mary's many links with Mother 

Nature. 



No, it's not Big Ben but it looks quite 
similar. St. Mary's very own clock 
tower stands tall on the side of our 
library telling students when it is time 
to eat. Once the new student center is finished, 
this time-teller will have a huge responsibility.

Each And 



WorldCarnival 




\v> «+> 



Spring has sprung and 
World Carnival is back again 
in full swing! What another 
great day for everyone to 
come out of the woodworks 
and relax. Early in the morn- 
ing, tours filter throughout the 
campus and the Open House 
warms prospective students. 

Following a fantastic 
night of music, World Carni- 
val kicks off with the annual 
reading of The Lorax by Dr. 
Seuss. 

For the rest of the day, 
there was cotton candy, snow 
cones, cookies, hot dogs, 
boxing, velcro wall, and doz- 
ens of other things to eat and 
do. If you got on the tumbler 



however, you probably 
weren't able to do much else 
afterward. 

By sundown, the ven- 
dors were gone, but the party 
was just starting. Bands be- 
gan arriving and the music 
started playing. The All 
Mighty Senators were the big 
hit of the night with Landis 
Expandis banging away on 
his drums. 

They weren't alone. 
Many bands from around the 
area warmed up the stage 
earlier in the evening. 

Make sure you give 
Edie Fortuna a high-five for 
the work she did to get them 
all down here. 




President Maggie O'Brien, Kevin 
' Frank, and Christina Klepper read The 
Lorax to begin World Carnival festivi- 
ties. This tradition has been occuring 



for the past several years at this time.

Even the Dean made his way out tc 
the Admissions Field to take part ir 

( llO( li this day of fun in the sun. Mike 
Friedman made his way all the « ay I 

the top of that wall and managed to keep his 

sunglasses on. 



World Carnival 



World Carnival is one of the only days 
during the year when there is interac- 
tion between the campus and the town 
around it. Many parents brought their 
children out during the day to ride the pony, 
have their faces painted, and blow bubbles. 



The \elcro wall seemed to be a very 
popular attraction for the students. 
Many times it was a competition to see 
who could get the highest or do the 

most flips. Alexis has her turns and landings 

down pat. 



,»'»• 




SOAP (Students Offering Alternative 
Programs (provided everyone with soap 
in one form or another. Bubbles were 
flying all day as members and friends 

attracted attention with their crazy bubble 

makers.

Zombies and ghouls covered the stage 
as the Orientation Leaders performed 
their rendition of the famous Thriller! 

Do you think freshman were upset about

he is not joking around « hen he sa\ s not to yet

OLs Sing Their 



\Airband\ 



HeartsOut 



One of the first group 
of people that freshman make 
when they come to St. Mary's 
is their Orientation Group and 
many times they remain 
friends throughout the next 
four years. The leaders of 
these groups are upperclass- 
men who try and befriend the 
freshman and make sure that 
they have a great time during 
their stay at St. Mary's. 

The O.L.s, every year, 
have to make the freshman 
feel as welcome as possible 
and what's a better way to do 
that than make total fools of 



themselves. The last Friday 
before classes start, the Ori- 
entation leaders dress up as 
their favorite rock stars and 
lip sing their favorite songs. 
This year, they went all out. 
From New Kids on the Block 
to the Beastie Boys and Ma- 
donna to Prince, this awe- 
some group of students 
danced and "sang" till they 
were sweating through their 
clothes. 

To all of you Orienta- 
tion Leaders, thank you so 
much for making freshman 
year that much easier.

How else could they help each other make

Kevin Pierce howls at the moon as he 
leads this group singing Michael 
X| Jackson's Thriller! Although he is sup- 
posed to be the center of attention, it is 
hard not to notice the orientation leaders stand- 
ing behind him waiting patiently to begin their 
mummy moves. 

This is isn't the only time you will see 
a bunch of girls dancing around in their 
pajamas, but this sight will definately 
be one that will stick with those who 
were at the 1998 Airband.
