For every stu- 
dent of La 
Salle Uni- 
versity, the 
diversity and opportu- 
nity that a college ed- 
ucation has to offer is 
a treasured and valued 
gift. Invariably, the vi- 
tahty of any institution 
is measured by the 
sum of its parts — or 
rather, in the 
case of La 
Salle, the 
of its stu- 
dents. These 
can be seen in 
many forms 
— the hard 
work of stu- 
dents in the 
great per- 
formances on the 
playing field and of 
course the creative 
outlets that manifest 
themselves through 
extra-curriculars. In 
addition, the com- 
bined efforts of the ad- 
ministration and fac- 
ulty must also be rec- 
ognized. In many 
ways, it is those peo- 
ple that provide and 
encourage the stimu- 

lus for the growth and 
expansion of the uni- 

For all of these rea- 
sons, the Explorer 
staff has set its goals 
high — to capture the 
spirit of all these com- 
ponents and celebrate 
their successes evenly. 
Therefore, the unify- 
ing message through- 

out the 1995 Explorer 
is one promoting 
"Campus Wide Cov- 
erage." By 'campus 
wide,' the staff pledg- 
es to bring a wider 
span of campus organ- 
izations, activities, so- 
cial events, individual 
teacher profiles and 
outstanding athletic 
performances. Moreo- 
ver, the class of 1995 
will be recognized for 

their years of service 
and commitment to 
the university. Ex- 
panded coverage of 
the panorama of La 
Salle will be included 
as well as the most 
complete chronicle of 
the events that shaped 
our lives outside the 
confines of 20th & 01- 

As the 
,L. class of 1995 

^*^B leaves La 
ja^H Salle for the 
"^BBI future en- 
deavors that 
lie ahead of 
them, the Ex- 
plorer will re- 
main as the 
one link to all 
the memories 
and events 
that have 
made the past four 
years as cherished and 
memorable as they 
are. For each of the 
classes that follow be- 
hind, the Explorer will 
be the symbolic re- 
minder of the pride 
and tradition that has 
come to embody the 
La Salle experience.

memoirs of a disgruntled commuter student: 

SEPTA — Better 
Than Walking? 

by Tim Esposito — 

^r^ ometime last 
^^^^ year it 
W^^^ occurred to 
me that the 
idea of riding pubhc 
transportation to 
school everyday was 
not going to work. 
This probably 
happened sometime 
in January when I got 
off the 18 bus at Fox 
Chase in the middle 
of a blinding snow 
and ice storm, only to 
discover that the R8 
Rail Shuttle, my ride 
home, was not 
running. Or perhaps it 
occurred to me as I 
hiked down and up 
hills of ice in -20° 
weather from Broad 
and Olney because 
the busses and 
shuttles could not 
make it up the hill. 
Still, I strove onward, 
thinking that it could 
not get worse. 

Eventually I was 
proven wrong. Only 
sooner than I thought. 
Once I arrived on 
campus, I discovered 
that the University 
closed at 10 am, and 
all classes were 
canceled. Not only 
that, but a pipe froze 
and burst in the 
SEPTA headquarters, 
and all of the city 
was in a disorganized 
mess of confused 
drivers and non- 
operating busses. So I 
resorted to camping 
out on the floor of 

some friends' room 
for the night. 
Fortunately, I had 
thought ahead and 
brought emergency 
supplies in the case of 
such an event. 
However, I was 
unprepared for the 
university being 
completely closed the 
following day. And 
the day after. 

Praying that 
SEPTA, the god of 
public transportation, 
had gotten itself 
figured out, I raced a 
bus to the subway 
and won. Once I got 
to the subway I 
decided to catch a 
ride on the R2 from 
Fern Rock to 
Warminster, and get 
home from there. 
However, it was not 
meant to be. All 
regional rail lines 
were closed due to 
ice and lack of 
electricity. Well, that 
left the shuttle bus, 
which had an 
irregular schedule 
even in fair weather. 
Luckily for me, the 
R8 Rail Shuttle to 
Newtown was 
running, although it 
was over an hour 
behind schedule. 

Throughout the 
winter, I encountered 
similar experiences. 
Sprinting a few 
hundred feet uphill in 
the pouring rain with 

a full school bag in 
an attempt to catch 
the last departing Rail 
Shuttle was just one 
such nightmare. So 
too was riding an 
empty 18 bus for an 
hour and a half, just 
to get to Fox Chase, 
and then riding on the 
shuttle for two hours, 
on a route that 
usually takes a half 
hour, to get home. 
Missing the shuttle, 
and waiting three 
hours for the next 
one, waiting at school 
during my three hour 
breaks with no place 
in particular to go, 
getting signed in 
every time I needed 
to enter the dorms . . . 
the list goes on and 
on. Perhaps one of 
the worst points about 
having to rely on 
SEPTA was the non- 
existent night time 
schedule for the 
shuttle. If I had not 
left school by 8:15 
p.m., I would miss 
the shuttle 
connection, and be 
stuck at Fox Chase 
until the next 

Although this 
rough commuter life 
may seem difficult 
and unpleasant, there 
are advantages. A 
home cooked meal 
every night, and a 
quiet house in which 
to sleep are two such 
pleasantries. A 


SEPTA Trailpass 
would let me have 
unlimited rides on 
any subway, bus or 
train within two 
zones. There are free 
rides downtown when 
classes take cultural 
excursions. One also 
learns how the rail 
and bus system of 
Philadelphia does, or 
does not, work. 
Perhaps the most 
rewarding result of 

taking the bus is the 
large amount of free 
religious literature 
which one 

accumulates over the 
year. This is 
seconded by the 
collection of a year's 
worth of SEPTA 
Trailpasses. Overall, 
commuting is an

new students have difficulty 

Finding Their Way Around 

by Heather Olson 

The tale was 
the same as 
cursed to eternally 
roll a huge boulder 
up a great hill, only 
to have it fall back to 
the beginning as he 
neared success, each 
and every time. At 
least La Salle is a 
little better than the 
fabled Hades. Well, 
maybe not on move- 
in day. Moving in, 
again, proved a new 
experience for many 
of the freshmen, and 
a trial for all those 
who were returning. 

It seemed to be a 
tiresome, unending 
task; lets face it, it 
was a tiresome, 
unending task. It took 
a great exhibition of 
skill to load the 
important necessities 
into vehicles which 
seem to have 
magically shrunk a 
good deal from the 
start of packing. The 
next step was to get 
all these various 
items into the place 
where the rest of the 
year will be spent. 
So, after about one 
million or so trips — 

up and down too 
many flights of stairs 
— all the belongings 
that were once 
thought to be so 
necessary are 
crammed into the 
impossibly small 

Next came the 
really fun part, 
rearranging all the 
furniture. Fortunately, 
the reserves (Mom, 
Dad, family, and 
friends) stepped in to 
assist with the new 
task. After 
everything fifty or so 

times, everyone was 
satisfied, or at least 
too exhausted to 
argue anymore. 

Now everything 
that was moved 
needed to be put 
away, but where . . . ? 
The closet was all 
ready stuffed to the 
maximum, and the 
drawers full. No 
room was left to be 
found anywhere, or 
was there . . . ? 
Again, rearranging 
and packing and 
repackaging saved the 
day — so everything 
did fit after all, sort 

of. Now where did 
that what'sitcalled go 
. . . ? Didn't anyone 
put it in the car? How 
could something so 
important be left 
behind? Well, 
considering all the 
various important 
things that managed 
to show up, the day 
wasn't a total 
disaster, after all . . . 
Now, if only that 
what'sitcalled would 
show up . . .

several points 
,hould he taken into 
account. The distance 
from home, cost, type ol' 
education and its location 
in the area have to be 
taken into consideration. 
Immediately, I realized 
that La Salle offered a 
grand compromise of all 
of these. It wasn't when I 
toured the dorms, or 
stared at the grand neo- 
gothic buildings. It also 
didn't occur when I heard 
about the curriculum or 
basketball team. Rather, I 
realized that La Salle was 
the best when I noticed its 
prime location between 
two superb street vendors. 

Located on the corner 
of 20th and Olney, the hot 
dog stand of Theodore 
Veaslaridis provides 
passersby with sustenance 
and refreshment. 
Everything from 
traditional Philly soft 
pretzels to spicy Italian 
sausage is available at 
Theo's stand. Hailing 
from Northern Greece, 
Theo moved to the United 
States eleven years ago. 
After his wife's cousin, 
who was attending La 
Salle, pointed out that 
there was no vendor near 
the campus, Theo set up 
camp with the help of his 
father-in-law, on the 
comer where he still plies 
his trade. Working 
throughout the year, 
except around Christmas, 
Theo skillfully compiles 
delicious lunches and 
snacks at lightening 
speed. From this prime 
location, Theo watched 
his cousin attend La Salle 
and eventually graduate in 

1989. Regardless of his 
dedication to this job, 
Theo still spent time 
working to become a U.S. 
ciii/en, which he became 
last year. Of all his work. 
Theo finds that interacting 
with the students, 
especially with those of 
different cultures, is the 
most interesting and 
rewarding experience. 

Only half a block down 
Olney Avenue from 
Theo's stand, is a lunch 
truck containing a variety 
of provisions. Run by 
Viet Van Tran and his 
wife Dien. the Chinese 
lunch truck fills the empty 
stomachs of students and 
faculty alike. Originally 
from Vietnam, Viet Van 
moved here in 1979. 
While he worked in a 
garage in Upper Darby, 
his wife cooked in a 
Chinese restaurant below 
City Hall, on Broad and 
Chestnut. When attending 
La Salle University, his 
brother remarked that 
Olney Avenue lacked a 
street vendor. Seizing the 
opportunity, his wife 
opened the lunch truck at 
its present location in 
1991. Unfortunately, the 
first year was not entirely 
successful. Business was 
poor, and Dien was 
robbed by three men at 
the end of the year. 
Afterwards, though, 
business soared so much 
that Viet Van was forced 
to quit his job as a 
mechanic to help, and 
protect his wife. Today, 
they may both be seen 
working diligently to 
concoct some of the finest 
Chinese and American 
food this side of the Food

The New Building 
On The Block 

by Sara Chiappa 


fter only a 
brisk seven- 
minute walk 
from the 
Union building stu- 
dents can find them- 
selves in another envi- 
ronment — an envi- 
ronment that virtually 
makes almost anyone 
forget that they are in 
the city. This is south 
campus, home of the 
new Com- 
Center. Af- 
ter five 
years of 
and con- 
an elemen- 
tary school 
was trans- 
formed in- 
to La Salle's state-of-

completed, the Com- 
munications Depart- 
ment hosted several 
house warming events 
including a ribbon cut- 
ting, a wine and cheese 
for alumni and a dedi- 
cation ceremony. 

Besides the new 
look, the Communica- 
tion Center provides 
the faculty and stu- 
dents an element that 
was previously miss- 

ing: unity. The class- 
rooms, studios and ed- 
iting equipment are 
now housed in one 
building. An advance- 
ment in technology al- 
so accompanies the 
new look of the center. 
This quantum leap is 
apparent in the in- 
creased size of the tel- 
evision studio, the 
number of editing

rooms and the high 
caliber of the equip- 
ment. The Communi- 
cation Center now has 
the talent and equip- 
ment to compete with 
the television networks 
in terms of technology 
and consequent quality 
of work done. 

The actual class- 
rooms have not been 
neglected, as each is 
equipped with a tele- 
vision and VCR and 
improved acoustics. 
There are also confer- 
ence and presentation 

rooms that are fur- 
nished with computers 
and projection equip- 
ment. The computers 
allow either teacher or 
student to make a pres- 
entation with high lev- 
el graphics. Video 
equipment in the back 
of the room allows for 
a later critique of the 
presentation. This is 
especially advanta-

And so it 
began, the 
tor the 
freshman class of 
1998. This would 
likely be the most 
terrifying experience 
of your college career, 
next to graduation, of 
course. After the 
friends, family, and 
everyone else who 
was suckered into 
helping with the big 
move dole out the 
customary hugs and 
leave you behind with 
all the stuff you 
absolutely had to bring 
and couldn't fit in 
your room, then the 
true terror begins. You 
find that you were left 
with one or two total 
strangers to live with 
for the duration of the 
semester, which hasn't 
even begun. But 
things look up after 
you start to talk, 
understanding that all 
those forms you filled 
out actually did help 
in matching you with 
others whom you just 
might be able to stand. 

Then, the entire 
1998 graduating class 
was taken en mass to 
the ballroom in the 
Union building. This 
occurred to the 
amazement of just 
about every freshman 
— a ballroom, in the 
Union? After hearing 
from all the 
impressive, important 
people that had so 
many wonderful 
things to say that 
weren't meant to 
terrify you, but did 
manage to stress that 

your career and future 
security would rely 
upon the next four 
years of your life, you 
feel so very much 
better about the 
beginning of your 
college career. 

Then the entire 
class was herded, 
much like cattle, into 
the Hank De Vincent 
Memorial field for the 
Play Fair, run by a 
bunch of over- 

upperclassman whom 
everyone knew were 
suffering from too 
many all-nighters

first time, you met too 
many of the people

spending the duration 
of your college life.

more of your

a lot better, you enter

Since there 
existed the

earning a Master's 
Degree in Professional

The first thirty-five

"Wr a Salle University is an institution well 
H noted for its academic strengths, partic- 
^^J^Vularly the scholastic standards and per- 
sonal teaching approach that professors 
regularly exude. These academic characteristics 
have differentiated the La Salle environment, 
and have established a community where pro- 
fessors and students work together and learn 
from each other. 

Each year the current volume of the Explorer 
is dedicated to a member of the faculty who rep- 
resents La Salle's commitment to personalized 
teaching and academic excellence. For thirty- 
two years of service to the La Salle community, 
Dr. Samuel J. Wiley is recognized and com- 
mended by the 1995 Explorer staff. 

Dr. Wiley commenced his teaching career at 
La Salle in 1963, instructing mathematics and 
computer science classes. He was appointed an 
Associate Professor to the Mathematical Sci- 
ences Department, and in 1993 Dr. Wiley as- 
sumed the duties of Associate Dean of the 

School of Arts and Sciences. 

As an undergraduate himself, Dr. Wiley stud- 
ied at Saint Joseph's University. Later, he con- 
tinued his education at Villanova University and 
Temple University where he attained his mas- 
ter's degree and Ph.D., respectively. 

Dr. Wiley has been described as an enthusi- 
astic and energetic teacher who genuinely cares 
for his students. Well loved by his colleagues in 
the Mathematical Sciences Department, as well 
as the hundreds of La Salle alumni he has taught, 
Dr. Wiley is described as a gentle, caring man 
who brings compassion into his duties as pro- 
fessor and Associate Dean of Arts and Sciences. 

In recognition of his service and commitment 
to the La Salle University learning environment, 
the Explorer staff proudly dedicates their 1995 
volume to Dr. Samuel J. Wiley. With apprecia- 
tion and gratitude, the entire academic commu- 
nity wishes Dr. Wiley many future years of suc- 
cess at La Salle.

Explorers take 
pride in the ac- 
ademic stan- 
dards of La Salle, a 
place "where teaching 
comes first." Here, ded-

ed its academ- 
ic programs, 
and has contin- 
ued to enjoy its 
recognition by 
U.S. News and 
World Report 
as one of 
leading col- 

Yet with all 
growth comes 
change, and 
this academic 
year has also witnessed 
a vast and surprising 
shift in administration, 
including a new Provost, 
Director of Admissions, 
Interim Dean of the 
School of Business Ad- 
ministration, and Dean 
of the School of Contin- 
uing Studies. These re- 
placements stirred much 
concern and confusion 
from among the La Salle 
community, but efforts 
to improve and redirect 
the university's scholas- 
tic efforts ultimately 
pulled La Sallians to- 

Preparation for the fu- 
ture demands innovative 
programs and upgraded 
academic facilities. An 
expansion of La Salle's 
course offerings has en- 
abled students and 
teachers to participate in 
a number of exciting 
new classes. Now, stu- 
dents can pursue a minor 
in Environmental Sci- 
ence or take a night class 
in Swahili. As well, the 

rapidly advancing com- 
puter age has trans- 
formed La Salle's aca- 
demic approach. Now 
computer science and 
mathematics classes are 
offered in Olney Hall's 
new computer lab, and 
many students can be 
found in Wister Hall 
consulting the Internet, 
sending email or per- 
forming experiments 
with Interactive Physics 
for Windows. 

Yet La Salle still rec- 
ognizes the human fac- 
tor in the learning proc- 
ess. During the fall of 

1994, twelve members 
of the Honors Program 
investigated how people 
learn. These students 
studied grade school, 
high school and college 
environments, question- 
ing students and teach- 
ers from all parts of Phi- 
ladelphia and its sub- 
urbs. What did they 
find? Dr. Preston Feden 
and his class concluded 
that education must en- 
gage learners. 
Students, they 
found, learn 
best when en- 
couraged to 
actively partic- 
ipate in their 
own learning 
process. Dr. 
Feden and his 
students hope 
to see more 
promote inter- 
active and co- 
learning practices. 

Clearly, despite all the 
change and expansion 
La Salle has experienced 
this academic year, the 
focus upon teaching has 
not escaped. As long as 
the university invests in 
its students and their ed- 
ucational success, La 
Salle will continue to 
rank among America's

Dr. Coughlin was 
bom in Ohio, but 
at a young age he 
moved to St. Louis, Missouri 
where he spent the rest of his 
childhood. Dr. Coughlin de- 
scribes himself as a "strange 
child," who loved school and 
learning. It was at a very early 
age that he chose his future 
career. In third grade he read 
a book about Wood Hole 
Massachusetts, where there 
are many Marine Biology 
Labs clustered together. From 
that point on, Coughlin knew 
Marine Biology was in his fu- 

He attended St. Louis Uni- 
versity, the "local Catholic 
University" in his home 
town. After finishing his un- 
dergraduate degree, Coughlin 
traveled to The University of 
Boston to participate in their 
Marine program known as 
"BUMP" (Boston University 
Marine Program). After com- 
pleting the rigorous program, 
he desired to travel. This 
search took him to the Amer- 
ican Northwest and to the 
beautiful Providence of Co- 
lumbia, where Coughlin 
served a Post Doctoral Fel- 
lowship at the University of 
Victoria. According to 
Coughlin it was a beautiful 
place to live and research. The 
University of Pennsylvania 
was the next stop during 
Coughlin' s travels. There he 

researched fish swimming 
patterns and muscle physiol- 

Dr. Coughlin replaces La 
Salle teachers on sabbatical 
leave during the 1994-1995 
academic year. He enjoys his 
work at La Salle, and he com- 
ments, "(The) students in 
general at LaSalle are of high 
caliber. It has been enjoyable 
to teach those who are excited 
to learn themselves." 

Dr. Coughlin also enjoys 
the research portion of his ca- 
reer. He says that he has al- 
ways held a special fascina- 
tion with fish, in fact most of 
his current research focuses 
on fish. Yet, there are draw- 
backs to studying marine life. 
A shrinking budget for marine 
studies from the government 
makes research for scientists 
like Coughlin difficult. 

However, despite funding 
problems there are highlights 
to studying marine life. Dr. 
Coughlin's favorite experi- 
ence was teaching a course at 
the Turks and Kacos Islands 
in the Caribbean. For a month 
during the summer the well 
protected, well-preserved 
reefs of the islands served as 
a lab for the students. Lecture 
in the morning, lab in the af- 
ternoon and a jog on the beach 
during lunch break provided 
the ideal campus and activi- 
ties for a marine biologist and 
his class.

Ballough to its faculty this 

Dr. Ballough has several 
years of experience researching 
and teaching. At Penn State 
University, he obtained his 
Ph.D. and was a teaching assis- 
tant to pre-medicine and nurs- 
ing students for five years. He 
taught Master Studies at Pas- 
teur University for two years 
and was a National Research 
Council Fellow for the US Ar- 
my. There, he taught laboratory 
procedure to civilians and mil- 
itary, although he was hired 
mainly for research at both fa- 
cilities. Currently, he is a re- 
search consultant for the US 

Neurophysiology is his field 
of specialty, and he teaches 
Anatomy and Physiology, His- 
tology, Developmental Biolo- 
gy, and Structure/Function of 
Organisms at La Salle. Dr. Bal- 
lough teaches in a relaxed man- 
ner with honesty and mutual 
respect as key optimum learn- 
ing. He finds interaction with 
the students to be an enlight- 
ening experience that makes 
teaching rewarding. Bright, 
stimulating people are a pleas- 
ure to teach, according to Dr. 
Ballough, and he finds such 
persons among the La Salle 
population. He comments that 

they are especially motivated. 

Dr. Ballough feels that both 
research and interaction with 
students are essential for the 
soul. He describes research as 
the compilation of all your hard 
work and learning, while car- 
rying it one step further to cre- 
ate or accomplish something 
with that knowledge, so as to 
capsulize all that you have 
learned. Both research and 
teaching are the key to the suc- 
cess of a dedicated professor 
and scientist, he believes. 

Family is Dr. Ballough's 
number one priority in life. His 
wife Daryl and his two boys 
Dorian, age 4, and Denten, age 
2, occupy most of his time that 
is not spent teaching or doing 
research in the lab. He also en- 
joys international travel, where 
he can experience the cultures 
of other countries. 

Dr. Ballough chose to teach 
at La Salle for a specific rea- 
son, the teaching philosophy. 
Here, he believes, students are 
the major priority of the uni- 
versity yet at the same time a 
great deal is expected from 
them. He feels that this teach- 
ing motto is very similar to one 
that is close to his heart. A 
graduate of the Milton Hershey 
School, he has seen the benefits 
of prioritizing students. La Sal- 
le, he reflects, is the only insti- 
tution that has come close to 
accomplishing this method.

Dr. L>iin Texter takes a moment to chat with her students before beginning a E^lblic 
Relations class. 

nee a teacher in Mi- 
chigan, Mr. Michael 
Smith joined La Sal- 
le's faculty in the tall of 1993. 
With his intense background in 
public relations as well as his 
teaching experience, Michael 
Smith provides his communi- 
cation students with opportuni- 
ties to learn the "how" of pub- 
lic relations as well as the more 
important "why" of public re- 

Before arriving at La Salle, 
Smith recently taught at Purdue 
University, a school with over 
35,000 students. Of course, 
teaching at Purdue is a much 
different experience than teach- 
ing at La Salle where there are 
under 4,000 undergraduates. He 
is also completing his doctoral 
work at Purdue (at present, he 
continues to write his disserta- 
tion which should be finished 
by the end of 1994). 

Besides teaching at Purdue, 
Smith has taught at Central Mi- 
chigan University where he 
earned his masters in Commu- 
nication and his masters in Sci- 
ence and Administration. His 
masters in Science and Admin- 
istration opened the door to 
more management and admin- 
istrative tools. As an undergrad- 
uate at Central Michigan Uni- 
versity, Smith received his 
bachelor's degree in speech 
communication and journalism. 
In addition to his communi- 
cation schooling. Smith owes 
his father credit in leading him 
down the public relations path- 
way. Smith's father was a pub- 
lic relations consultant for over 
50 years. As for teaching run- 
ning in his family. Smith's 
grandmother was a teacher for 
over 50 years as well. 

Smith finds the caliber of stu- 
dents to be excellent at La Salle. 
Although his seemingly hun- 
dreds of assignments may not 

make him an "easy"" teacher, 
he pushes students to dabble in 
writing activities that will help 
them succeed in the looming 
"real world." Even though 
Smith's communication teach- 
ing style stresses the practical 
usage more than the philosoph- 
ical, he still wants his students 
to understand the reasons be- 
hind their actions. Smith firmly 
agrees with an IBM executive 
who once said that those who 
know why things are done will 
be able to help those who do not 
know what to do. 

A radiating smile reflects 
Smith's excitement about the 
new Communication Center as 
he talks about the great oppor- 
tunities La Salle students now 
have. In Smith's eyes, the new 
location, stashed all the way in 
its own comer near St. John 
Neumann Hall, brings the dif- 
ferent communication tracks to- 
gether and enables a closer con- 
nection between them to be re- 
alized. He notes that the new 
building also brings the faculty 
and students together. 

The communication center at 
La Salle has great resources be- 
yond the new facilities — fac- 
ulty like Michael Smith who 
make La Salle's education both 
pracUcal and worthwhile. In 
fact, in accordance with La Sal- 
le' s tradition of serving the 
community. Smith instructs his 
PR seminar class to propose a 
complete public relations plan 
for a non-profit organization in 
the Philadelphia area, hi this 
way, the smdents will gain job 
experience as well as helping 
the organization. 

Away from La Salle, Mi- 
chael Smith enjoys running and 
is an active Philadelphia dis-

Dr. Elizabeth Paulin 

by Christina Hazelwood 

Dr. Beth Paulin, Asso- 
ciate Professor of Ec- 
onomics, graduated 
from the University of Houston 
with a BS in Economics and then 
received her Ph.D., with a spe- 
cialization in Labor Economics, 
from the University of Texas. 
Not only did Dr. Paulin receive 
tenure last year, but she was the 
first woman member of the Ec- 
onomics Department to acquire 
this honor. 

In July of 1993, she became 
director of the Women's Studies 
Program. She also oversaw the 
opening of the new Women's 
Studies Center (Olney Hall, 
room 105). According to Dr. 
Paulin, the opening of the Wom- 
en's Studies Center was due to 
the efforts of many previous di- 
rectors and board members. In 
addition to her service to the 
Women's Studies Program, Dr. 
Paulin serves as advisor to the 
Student Economic Association 
(SEA) and the Economics Honor 
Society (Omicron Delta Epsilon 
— ODE). Despite all these ob- 
ligadons. Dr. Paulin makes time 
to play competitive volleyball 
and tennis. 

Shortly after starting her edu- 
cadon at the University of Ken- 
tucky, Dr. Paulin decided to en- 
ter into the work force rather 
than complete her studies. She 
accepted a clerical job in a Hous- 
ton firm, where the corporate ex- 
periences she witnessed made 
lasdng impressions of disgust in 
her mind. Not only did Dr. Pau- 
lin see women patronized, hit 
"glass ceilings" in advance- 
ment, or paid less than the men 
they trained, she experienced 
this injustice herself. According 
to Dr. Paulin, this injustice 
' "opened her eyes." She soon re- 
alized that there was no potential 
for her in that company with or 
without a college degree. A col- 
lege degree, she realized, was 
her only hope for any career ad- 
vancement. The injustice that Dr. 
Paulin struggled against in that 

Houston firm contributed to her 
interest in Women's Studies. She 
re-entered the scholastic world 
and even won a tennis scholar- 
ship to the University of Hous- 

When Dr. Paulin first entered 
Houston she didn't know what 
field to study. This was largely 
due to the poor efforts of her 
high school counselor. All this 
counselor could tell her was that 
she had good basic math and sci- 
ence skills. As a result, she start- 
ed at Houston as a pre-medicine 
major. In order to narrow her 
scope, she visited a college 
counselor who administered 
tests to determine her talents. 
The results of these tests rec- 
ommended that she would 
"serve well in the army" (to 
which she laughed). In order to 
gain direction, she was told to 
take an array of courses in dif- 
ferent areas, and she did. She 
took a few Economics classes 
and found that they were easy, so 
she decided to major in Econom- 
ics. The more Economics classes 
she took, the more she enjoyed 
the field. Once she gained direc- 
tion, she figured that it would 
best serve her to pursue graduate 
studies immediately. While stud- 
ying at the University of Texas, 
her mentor and dissertation ad- 
visor was Ray Marshall (Presi- 
dent Carter's Secretary of La- 
bor). She took many of Mar- 
shall's classes and became fas- 
cinated with Labor Economics. 

This interest in Labor Eco- 
nomics continues today. Dr. 
Paulin is currently researching 
the labor and economic condi- 
tions resulting from race, class, 
and gender. She is examining 
how the mix of these elements 
effect the determination of one's 
work and wages. Several of her 
articles on the effects that race 
and gender have on promotion in 
a financial service firm and on 
salary growth will be published 
next year.

Doctor Frederick Bar- 
telheim, a new addi-

ucation department, spent his 
first year sharing his vast knowl- 
edge of the world of education 
with his students and colleagues. 

Dr. Bartelheim hails from 
northern Nevada, but currently 
resides in Southampton. After 
receiving his education, he be- 
gan his teaching career out on 
the West Coast. At the Univer- 
sity of Nevada, Reno Dr. Bartel- 
heim received both his under- 
graduate and Master's degrees. 
Then he decided to continue his 
studies at the University of San 
Francisco, where he received his 

During the beginning of his 
career as a teacher. Dr. Bartel- 
heim worked as a high school 
business teacher and also taught 
business at a Junior Community 
College in Nevada, where he 
worked with behavior disordered 
students. After receiving his doc- 
torate. Dr. Bartelheim achieved a 
position as an education profes- 
sor at Dickinson State University 
in North Dakota. Last year, he 
held the position as classroom 
consultant for behavior disor- 
dered students at the University 
of Nevada. He worked with the 
teachers on a one-to-one basis to 
help them with the daily prob- 
lems they faced in the classroom. 

Although Dr. Bartelheim is a 
newcomer to La Salle's educa- 
tion department, he took on 
many responsibilities during his 
first two semesters on campus. 
In addition to teaching Educa- 
tion 101 — Role of the Teacher, 
Education 204 — Educational 
Psychology, and courses in the 
Graduate program. Dr. Bartel- 
heim supervised student teachers 
and worked with a colleague on 

the Senior Seminar for Special 
Education. When asked about 
his preference among the classes 
he taught, he commented, "I re- 
ally don't have one course that I 
enjoy more than the others ... I 
enjoy teaching all of them. 1 I'eel 
that each course is very impor- 
tant as a part of the education 

Publishing and research also 
occupies a great deal of Dr. Bar- 
telheim' s time. The majority of 
his research focuses on training 
of preservice teachers, and on 
special education in kindergarten 
through grade twelve. His dis- 
sertation focuses on special ed- 
ucation teachers and their role in 
the classroom. One of the most 
important approaches that Dr. 
Bartelheim has discovered 
through his research is the de- 
velopmental teaching role ap- 

His dedication to the educa- 
tion department and his students 
is outstanding. When it comes to 
education. Dr. Bartelheim will 
go to any extent to help out. 
"When there is a need, I'm al- 
ways willing to stand up and at- 
tend to it. I have always wanted 
to teach at a university, and it is 
where I plan to stay." 

Although Dr. Bartelheim 
wanted to teach at a university, 
he experienced a period of ad- 
justment when he arrived on the 
East Coast. When asked about 
the students of La Salle com- 
pared to his students on the West 
Coast, he commented, "I think 
that the students here are great. 
They are friendly and willing to 
work. I must admit, though, that 
there are a lot of differences be- 
tween the students on the west 
coast and the east coast. I like it 
here and I plan to stay for a few 
years and try this out."

A local resident of 
Glenside, Pennsyl- 
vania, Dr. Dolores 
Lehr has been a part-time 
English teacher at La Salle for 
the past three years. This ac- 
ademic year marked Dr. 
Lehr's appointment to a full- 
time position with the English 
Department as a replacement 
for professors on sabbatical 
leave. A native of the Phila- 
delphia area. Dr. Lehr attend- 
ed Penn State from which she 
received her B.A. in English. 
She then studied at Temple 
University where she received 
her Masters Degree in English 
followed by her Ph.D. in Vic- 
torian Literature. Previous to 
teaching. Dr. Lehr spent six 
years in industry working first 
as technical editor for Hone- 
ywell Inc. Later, she was a 
publication manager for a pri- 
vate company in the local ar- 
ea. Before teaching at La Sal- 
le, Dr. Lehr worked part time 
at Beaver College, Penn State, 
adn Holy Family College. 

Dr. Lehr's responsibilities 
at La Salle include teaching 
Writing I and II (English 107 
and 108), the Freshman Ex- 
perience (English 150), and 
Business Writing (English 
203). She, along with Dr. 
Robertson, works in the 
Sheekey Writing Center 
where she has the opportunity 
to assist students with their as- 
signments. Dr. Lehr remarks 
that she enjoys the time she 
spends in the Writing Center 

for two reasons: first, she is 
there to help students rather 
than give them a grade; and 
second, she is afforded the 
chance to learn from the stu- 
dents through the various top- 
ics of their papers. Of all the 
schools at which Dr. Lehr has 
taught, she likes La Salle the 
best because of both the stu- 
dents and the faculty. She 
added that she "very much 
likes teaching at La Salle" be- 
cause not only is academic ex- 
cellence emphasized, but also 
the education of the whole 

On a more personal level. 
Dr. Lehr has two adopted 
daughters for whom she trav- 
eled to Chile. Her older 
daughter Maria is thirteen 
years old, and her younger 
daughter Maureen is twelve 
years old. When she is not 
spending time with her daugh- 
ters. Dr. Lehr enjoys swim- 
ming and walking whenever 
she has the chance. Her inter- 
ests include Charles Dickens 
and Chilean writers, especial- 
ly the fiction writer Isabelle 
Allende and the poet Gabriel- 
la Mistral. In the field of com- 
position, she is currently fo- 
cusing her research on tech- 
nical and business writing. Dr. 
Lehr would like to return to 
Chile some day to learn more 
about its culture; presently, 
she would also like to contin- 
ue teaching at La Salle on a 
full-time basis.

Dr. Matus-Mendoza 

By Jennifer Schmitt — 

Dr. Matus-Mendoza 
brings a new spirit to 
LaSaile's foreign 
language department this year. 
Hailing from Mexico City, at a 
young age of twenty-three, Dr. 
Matus-Mendoza has accom- 
plished much in her career. 

Majoring in didactics and ap- 
plied linguistics, she received 
her Bachelor of Arts degree in 
English Literature in Mexico 
City. Dr. Matus-Mendoza 
worked and studied at the Na- 
tional Autonomous University 
of Mexico. In 1991, she came to 
Temple University to study for 
her Master of Arts degree in 
Spanish Literature. After receiv- 
ing her degree, her next goal was 
to attain her Ph.D. 

Mendoza spent a great deal of 
time aiound Thanksgiving pre- 
paring to take comprehensive 
exams for research in social lin- 
guistics, a new approach to the 
language spoken here. Mendoza 
has also dedicated many hours to 
preparing for an organized liter- 
ature conference in the spring. 
The goal of this session. Dr. 
Mendoza said, is to share litera- 
ture papers and study different 
parts of the country. 

Currently, Dr. Mendoza is 
collaborating with a French col- 
league on a book about teaching 
Spanish. She is enthusiastic 
about the book, and she and her 
friend plan it to be a collection 
of shared stories which will de- 
velop reading and writing abili- 
ties for high school students. 

During her first semester at La 
Salle, Dr. Mendoza taught Span- 
ish 201 and Spanish 301. In ad- 
dition, she taught basic Spanish 
at Temple University. She was 
also involved with LASS at 

Temple, which focuses on de- 
veloping the essential skills in a 
foreign language, learning his- 
tory and discovering culture. 

Dr. Matus-Mendoza reflects 
that she feels at home among the 
La Salle community. "I like the 
people very much. I like the at- 
mosphere. The students of La 
Salle remind me a great deal of 
the students in Mexico." Dr. 
Mendoza incorporates an eclec- 
tic teaching style into her classes. 
"Eclectic is when I use many 
methods and approaches to teach 
the students. For example, I ask 
the students to look up articles in 
a Spanish newspaper and discuss 
them. Reading and learning for 
pleasure is the best way for stu- 
dents to enjoy a class. A text- 
book is useful, but I believe the 
pleasure must be brought in 
when learning and teaching. I try 
to get my students as close to re- 
al life in their learning and teach- 
ing. I try to get my students as 
close to real life learning as pos- 
sible. If I enjoy a class, then the 
majority of the class will enjoy 
it also. That is what is impor- 

When asked about her future 
plans, Dr. Matus-Mendoza said 
that she wants, "to continue to 
teach and make research in 
Spanish literature." Her dedica- 
tion to the Spanish language and 
literature has helped her to shape 
her future goals. "There are 
many manuscripts in Mexico 
that I want to work with." 

One point that Dr. Matus- 
Mendoza stresses is helping oth- 
ers. Her love of Spanish lives in 
her teaching, and her dedication 
to her students and the school is 
evident thi^ough her work.

Dr. John P. Rossi 

By Tim Esposito 

While La Salle Univer- 
sity has grown in the 
last few decades. Dr. 
John Rossi has been at its side, 
monitoring and helping the Uni- 
versity to expand. Starting in 
1954, Dr. Rossi attended La Sal- 
le, and was the first person in his 
family to graduate from college. 
Upon graduation, he attended 
Notre Dame where he obtained 
his Master of Arts degree. Short- 
ly thereafter. Dr. Rossi complet- 
ed his doctorate at the University 
of Pennsylvania. 

While working on his doctor- 
ate. Dr. Rossi accepted a one- 
year, part-time teaching position 
at La Salle in 1962. Fortunately 
it went well, and he received a 
full-time appointment the fol- 
lowing year. In 1977 he was 
awarded a full professorship at 
La Salle, and in the same year he 
won the prestigious Lindback 
Award for distinguished teach- 
ing. Dr. Rossi has witnessed La 
Salle change to a coed university 
with a significantly larger num- 
ber of residence students, and he 
also remembers the massive 
growth in the student population 
fueled by the GI Bill during the 
Korean War. 

In retrospect. Dr. Rossi notes 
that he, "enjoyed (his) time here. 
Students are a lot different from 
when (he) started." Apparently, 
students were more motivated in 
the past, and they attended col- 
lege in order to become more 
successful in life. He sadly notes 
that now it seems that students 
attend college because it is ex- 
pected of them. Dr. Rossi feels 
that this causes students to main- 
tain a certain lack of interest in 

their courses. 

Dr. Rossi teaches a variety of 
courses, including: Modem Brit- 
ish History, Modem Ireland and 
the History of World War II. He 
also teaches a course that appeals 
to many students: America 
Through Baseball. Within this 
class, parallels are made between 
historic events and how they are 
reflected in the corresponding 
baseball seasons. Everything 
from the breaking of racial bar- 
riers to the decaying of inner cit- 
ies is explored. 

Dr. Rossi strongly believes 
that students should read more. 
His favorite author is English es- 
sayist and novelist George Or- 
well. It is Dr. Rossi's wish that 
all students should be required to 
read Politics and the English 
Language. He feels that profes- 
sors would have students, "Get 
rid of the multi-national crap, 
and read Orwell." 

Heavily involved in his field. 
Dr. Rossi continually writes and 
publishes essays. He has served 
as the Associate Editor of Four 
Quarters, La Salle's journal of 
contemporary culture, since 
1986. Four Quarters is a well 
known and respected publication 
in that it appears in the collec- 
tions at the Library of Congress 
and the British Museum. "His- 
tory should try to reach as broad 
an audience as possible." he re- 
marks. Currently, he is working 
on a book that describes the 
changes in baseball from the 
post- World War II era until the 
early sixties. Overall, Dr. Rossi 
has published eighty essays 
within the last 33 years.

Computers, the technolo-

rapidly expanding field, 
constantly improving ways to 
make our lives less complicated. 
For this reason, Dr. Rami Khas- 
awneh decided to study computer 

Dr. Khasawneh was bom in 
Amman, Jordan and came to the 
United States in April of 1989. He 
joined the La Salle community in 
September of 1 994, after carefully 
considering other institutions. His 
decision to teach here at La Salle 
was influenced greatly by La Sal- 
le's exceptional and modem pro- 
grams in computer science. 

Dr. Khasawneh eamed his un- 
dergraduate degree in electrical/ 
computer engineering at Yarmouk 
University, Jordan, in 1987. He 
went on to acquire a Masters in 
computer science from Westem 
Michigan University in 1990, and 
fmally his doctorate from the Illi- 
nois Institute of Technology in 

In teaching his classes. Dr. 
Khasawneh attempts to instill in 
his students problem solving 
skills, as well as new knowledge 
of the topics covered. He also at- 
tempts to conduct his classes in an 
interactive fashion, asking many 
questions of his students in addi- 
tion to encouraging them to ask 
questions of him. 

Dr. Khasawneh has shared his 
knowledge of computer science 
with many people in his writings. 
They include several papers writ- 
ten for the IEEE conferences, and 
two books in progress. 

His experience in the field in- 
cludes spending two years as a 
network engineer and three years 
as a computer consultant; as well 
as teaching computer science at 
Westem Michigan University, the 
Illinois Institute to Technology, 
and Chicago State University. 

Students studying computer 
science today need a teacher that 
is as committed to his students as 
Dr. Khasawneh.

Dr. Simcha Paull Raphael 

by Sara Chiappa 

Born in Montreal, 
Canada, Dr. Simp- 
cha Raphael re- 
ceived a B.A. and M.A. in 
History and Philosophy of 
Religion from Concordia 
University, and he later went 
on to receive his Ph.D. in Psy- 
chology of Rehgion from the 
California Institute of Integral 
Studies. Through a private or- 
dination, he became a Rab- 
binic Pastor whose ministry 
includes counseling and edu- 
cation. Professor Raphael has 
been teaching Undergraduate 
Religion and Graduate Relig- 
ion and Pastoral Counseling 
at La Salle since 1990, but 
this past year he is fulfilling 
another position as well. He 
has been appointed Jewish 
Chaplain at La Salle and, thus 
he is now a full-time faculty 
member. As Jewish Chaplain 
at La Salle, Professor Raphael 
meets the needs of the Jewish 
students and increases Jewish 
awareness on campus. 

The presence of a Jewish 
Chaplain at a Christian broth- 
ers' school might seem to be 
unusual, but Professor Raph- 
ael has acquired the "ability 
to put his foot in two worlds." 
As a young child, he grew up 
in a neighborhood of 125 
families, of which his family 
was the only Jewish house- 
hold. This lifestyle, that is, 
living in one culture and prac- 
ticing another, continued as a 
young Professor Raphael 
went from pubhc school each 
morning where ' 'Jesus Loves 
Me" was sung to Hebrew 
school in the afternoon where 
he began learning about Jew- 
ish tradition. His appreciation 
of the universalism of religion

diversity of the religion of In-

spent one year living and 
studying in Jerusalem, the city 
of three religions: Judaism, 
Christianity and Islam. He 
saw firsthand the positive ef- 
fects as well as the negative 
effects of religious faith when 
he was a passenger on a bus 
that was fire bombed as an act 
of religious violence. Fortu- 
nately, no one was injured.

Dr. Joseph Ugras 

by Mary Beth Bruno 

Dr. Ugras began his 
teaching career at 
La Salle in 1986. 
However, the events leading 
up to his eventual residence at 
La Salle are very extraordi- 
nary. To begin with, Dr. Ug- 
ras was born in Turkey. 
Around the time that he was 
ready to go to college, there 
was a great deal of turmoil in 
his native country. Thus, he 
chose to commence his post- 
secondary education in the 
United States, and he enrolled 
at Fairleigh Dickinson Uni- 
versity. He began his studies 
with a major in marketing, 
hoping to return to Turkey 
and aid his father in the ex- 
pansion of their family busi- 

However, while taking an 
accounting course. Dr. Ugras 
enjoyed the subject so much 
that he decided to change his 
major. After completing an 
accelerated three-year pro- 
gram, he eventually graduated 
with an accounting degree. 
Upon receipt of his Bache- 
lor's degree, he was offered a 
graduate assistantship to teach 
accounting and computer 
classes while taking graduate 
courses. This is what sparked 
his interest in the teaching 
profession. After receiving his 
MBA (with a concentration in 
accounting), he decided to 
pursue a Ph.D. at Temple Uni- 
versity. A referral to La Salle 

resulted in a teaching posi- 
tion. He fit in well at La Salle, 
sharing interests in integrating 
computers into the accounting 
courses, and in the AACSB 

Dr. Ugras has since worked 
before incorporate computers 
and international issues into 
the business curriculum. He 
has also demonstrated a great 
commitment to the university 
through involvement in vari- 
ous committees and events, 
and he remains largely dedi- 
cated to an array of profes- 
sional and service endeavors. 
Dr. Ugras is a Business 
School Teaching Excellence 
Award Winner, and he served 
as Director of Manuscripts 
and Affairs — IMA for the 
1993-1994 academic year. 
Currently, he chairs the Ac- 
counting Department Schol- 
arship Committee, the NCAA 
Self-Study of Fiscal Subcom- 
mittees Board, and the Athlet- 
ic Committee, and he is Di- 
rector of the Controller' s Con- 
ference throughout the 1994- 
1995 year. Also a board 
member of the Institute of 
Management Accountants 
(Philadelphia Chapter) and 
President-elect of the Ameri- 
can Accounting Association 
(Mid-Atlantic Region), he 
still finds time to coach ele- 
mentary and high school soc- 
cer and advise a college fra-

Ms. Kathleen McNichol 

by Mary Beth Bruno 

Professor Kathleen Mc- 
Nichol is not a stranger 
to La Salle University. 
She began her residence here as an 
undergraduate in the pursuit of 
Psychology and Sociology studies. 
Upon receiving her Bachelor of 
Arts degree in Psychology and So- 
ciology from La Salle. Professor 
McNichol performed outcome re- 
search for a social service organi- 

She eventually decided that she 
wanted to expand her knowledge 
by pursuing an MBA degree at La 
Salle University. She began her 
graduate studies with a concentra- 
tion in market research, largely be- 
cause of its compatibilit)' with her 
outcome research experience at the 
social service organization. At the 
same time. Prof. McNichol ac- 
cepted a job at an Insurance Com- 
pany, where she discovered her in- 
terest and abilities in the area of 
finance. She eventually received 
the Chartered Property Casualty 
Underwriters Designation (CPCLT) 
in addition to her MBA. 

Even though she continued to 
work in the insurance industry. 
Prof McNichol did not sever her 
ties with La Salle. She began her 
professional involvement at La 
Salle as a consultant involved with 
the university's efforts to market 
its newly-formed Risk Manage- 
ment and Insurance Program. Her 
consulting contributions led to a 
part-time teaching offer. This later 
led to a full-time position at La Sal- 

Professor McNichol is exten- 
sively involved with university ac- 
tivities. To begin with, she has as- 
sumed coordination of the Risk 
Management and Insurance Pro- 
gram. She is also the faculty ad- 
visor to Gamma Iota Sigma, a na- 
tional organization which fosters 
the interaction between students 
and the insurance and financial 
services industry. She also coordi- 

nated and hosted the National Con- 
ference of Gamma Iota Sigma at 
La Salle. In addition to this, she is 
on the Board of Trustees of the 
Grand Chapter of Gamma Iota 

Additionally, Professor Mc- 
Nichol is the faculty coordinator of 
the Kemper Scholars Program. 
Sponsored by the Kemper Foun- 
dation, this program selects one 
freshmen from each of fifteen to 
twenty colleges and universities, 
and assigns these students to three 
separate summer work environ- 
ments throughout the country. This 
provides each student with a very 
diverse, challenging and rewarding 
experience. Through her affiliation 
with the Kemper Insurance Com- 
pany, Prof. McNichol learned 
about this program and, conse- 
quently, worked with the La Salle 
administration to bring this oppor- 
tunity to the campus. 

Professor McNichol maintains a 
wide variety of other interests. For 
instance, she consults with the In- 
surance Instiuite of America. She 
also publishes book reviews in Tlie 
Journal of Risk and Insurance, and 
she conducts financial planning 
seminars for employees of area 
companies, including Philadelphia 
Gas Works and the Philadelphia 
Eagles Football Organization. 

As for La Salle, Professor 
McNichol describes the university 
as an "oasis of opportunity." Even 
though La Salle is a smaller insti- 
tution. Professor McNichol be- 
lie\es that it provided much in 
terms of the quality and diversity 
of faculty, administration, students, 
and oportunities. Professor Mc- 
Nichol is \ery satisfied with her 
decision to teach at La Salle as a 
professor. She attests that teaching 
is the most dynamic thing that she 
has ever done. She enjoys the con- 
stant student contact, and she looks 
forward to a future at La Salle.

Graduation is 
a time of 
fond remem- 
brances and 
bright beginnings. As 
seniors depart La Salle 
University, they not 
only cast individual 
recollection upon the 
personal and academic 
experiences that they 
have shared with each 
other, but they antici- 
pate a future sparked 
by excite- 
ment and 
The gradua- 
tion ritual is 
an opportu- 
nity to still 
time: at this 
graduates re- 
flect upon 
the meaning 
of their col- 
lege careers 
while step- 
ping into a 
new and uncertain 
phase of their lives. 

A time of self- 
awareness and self- 
growth, individuals 
change vastly during 
their college years. In 
the classrooms or the 
residence halls, stu- 
dents are exposed to 
new political, social, 
religious and intellec- 
tual ideas. An acquired 

appreciation for the 
perceptions of others, 
as well as a deepening 
realization of personal 
values, lead college 
students to recognize a 
more diversified, com- 
plex society. Perhaps 
most college graduates, 
having gained a broad- 
er exposure to different 
ideas, leave college 
knowing that they still 
have much to learn. 

The personal and ac- 
ademic support offered 
by the faculty and ad- 
ministrative staff at La 
Salle assists students in 
building open-minded 
and responsible per- 
ceptions of American 
society and the cultures 
contained within it. Not 
only are students en- 
couraged to develop 
their individual convic- 

tions, but they are mo- 
tivated to contribute to 
society in a meaningful 
and compassionate 

The class of 1995 
has the opportunity to 
give to society, and to 
build upon the personal 
and academic experi- 
ences that they have re- 
alized at La Salle. Each 
1995 graduate possess- 
es the potential to lead 
and motivate 
— to set a 
valuable ex- 
ample for 
others as fu- 
ture business 
teachers, sci- 
entists, doc- 
tors, politi- 
cians, jour- 
nalists, vol- 
unteers and 
among many 
roles. Hope- 
fully, this 
year's graduates will 
remember and treasure 
the memories of their 
La Salle days, and con- 
tinue to learn from the 
lessons they have real- 
ized as members of the 
Explorer community.

uman interac- 
tion is essential 
to the sou! . . . 

To be a well-rounded in- 
dividual, one must strive to 
interact with many different 
types of people and expose 
him/herself to various situ- 
ations. As a college under- 
graduate student this fact be- 
comes even more important. 
To succeed in class, one 
must be able to know all the 
ways of being the best stu- 
dent possible. Sometimes 
this might entail group work 
or study groups 
and communi- 
cation is key to 
make the best 
of this situa- 
tion. University 
life prepares 
one for "real'" 
world situa- 
tions and hav- 
ing background 
dealing with 
people is the 
way to attain 
confidence in 
your field. Ex- 
activities and 
clubs attempt to 
foster this preparation proc- 

There are many different 
types of organizations to fit 
each individual's needs. 
They vary from community 
service, literary 

publications, and student 
government to honor socie- 
ties for different majors. Al- 
so, greek fraternities and so- 
rorities help to bring forth a 
.sense of community and to- 
getherness by organizing a 
group of men or women to 
work towards a common 
goal. Each group adds a spe- 

cial element to university 
life. Making friends is often 
made easier when one is a 
part of a group that in some 
way benefits the campus. 

When one looks back at 
his/her college life, they will 
not only remember classes 
and professors but their 
friends and their activities 
which made them a better 
person. Involvement in your 
education in a communica- 
tive way benefits not only 
one's social life but one's 
academic studies as well. 

The more one knows about 
life and interaction, the eas- 
ier the studying will become 
while providing an outlet for 

Another aspect of in- 
volvement is appreciation. 
Appreciation for one's life 
and surroundings. One can- 
not be secluded to the 
thoughts and ideas that have 
been taught by parents. An 
awareness of differences 
and similarities between 
people and cultures helps to 
provide for a more friendly 
world. This is something 
that should be taught at the 

grammar and high school 
level but prejudice and con- 
flict of religious values pre- 
vent tolerance and under- 
standing from being taught. 
Tlic importance of this is 
that if one understands the 
values and perspectives of 
another then human rela- 
tions can be done judicious- 
ly and fairly without preju- 
dice or one-sidedness. 

The most important affect 
of involvement is socio- 
emotional development. So- 
cio-emotional in that one's 
ability to relate 
lo the world as 
one should at a 
certain age. 
College stu- 
dents are ap- 
proaching that 
stage in life 
where there is a 
conflict be- 
tween interac- 
tion and isola- 
tion. These ac- 
tivities help to 
promote in- 
which turns in- 
to interaction. 
Therefore, iso- 
lation is avoided and adult 
social skills can continue to 

Finally, student spon- 
sored organizations at La 
Salle University fit the de- 
scription to facilitate the best 
forms of human interaction. 
Being a part of the organi- 
zations is the way to really 
play a key role in one's col- 
lege life. To find oneself, 
one must interact and ex- 
plore . . .

James Burke Presents: 

"Mechanisms of Change: Do Lemons Whistle? ^^ 

by Stephanie Hamilton 

-^m- a Salle University 
^1 was honored this 
^H^Vyear to host a lec- 
ture which was 
given by the international- 
ly known James Burke. 
This lecture was entitled 
"Mechanisms of Change: 
Do Lemons Whistle?" and 
it was held on October 21, 
1994 in the Dan Rodden 
Theatre at 8:00 p.m. Burke 
began his lecture by pre- 
senting one event in histo- 
ry and then tracing its ef- 
fects throughout the dec- 
ades. For instance, he 
spoke about the role of in- 
sititutions and how they of- 
tentimes caused stagnation 
due to their refusal to de- 
viate from tradition. Con- 
sequently, students became 
frustrated and were thus 
compelled to act in order to 
change their situation. 

After a brief pause in the 
program, Burke spent the 
rest of the lecture entertain- 
ing questions from the au- 
dience. Both students and 
faculty were very interest- 
ed in the topics which 
Burke discussed. Unlike 
other lecturerers, Burke 

James Burke 

was not in the least bit 
unenthusiastic, nor did his 
energy dwindle while he 
presented his material. In 
fact, he received many 
chuckles and quite a few 
outbursts of laughter 
throughout his presenta- 
tion. Burke set up the fol- 
lowing situation: "A 
wealthy man is having an 
elegant dinner party. While 
he is speaking to some of 
his guests, a man who has 
become very drunk ap- 
proaches him with this 
question: 'Excuse me, sir. 
Can you tell me this? Do 
lemons whistle?' Surprised 
and a bit annoyed the host 
replies to the man, 'No, of 
course not. Lemons do not 
whistle.' Surprisingly, the 
drunk man answers him, 
'If that is the case, then I 
just squeezed your canary 
into my gin and tonic' 
All of those who attended 
the lecture found Burke to 
be extremely informative 
as well as entertaining and 
look forward to seeing him 
either in person or on one 
of his cable programs in 
the future.

Parents' Weekend 

Parents step into the shoes of students 

by Sara Chiappa 

This year. La Salle 
University desig- 
nated the week- 
end of October 
9th and 10th as Parents 
Weekend. With this, came 
a plethora of activities 
planned for both the par- 
ents and students. Follow- 
ing registration on Satur- 
day, a picnic lunch was 
provided before Br. Burke 
spoke to the parents and 
students about the univer- 
sity's plans. He also pro- 
vided answers to the con- 
cerns of the parents and 
students. Then, it was time 
for a reversal of roles. A 
variety of classes were of- 
fered for the parent's col- 
lege, giving the parents an 
opportunity to be back in 
the classroom and to see 
first hand the structure of a 
typical college class. The 
next portion of the day 
gave the parents and stu- 
dents the opportunity to 
make some choices. The 
La Salle Art Museum was 
open for anyone who want- 

ed to browse through it. 
Also, one could attend the 
dedication ceremony of the 
new Communication Cen- 
ter and the following re- 
ception. Or parents and 
students could take a break 
from the busy schedule and 
spend quality time togeth- 
er. Then, for those who 
wanted to attend, there was 
a 5:00 mass in the chapel. 
During the special liturgy, 
three students gave the 
homily, honoring and 
thanking their parents. Af- 
ter the mass, an excellent 
dinner was served in a 
transformed North Dining. 
To conclude the day, the 
Jazz Band gave an enter- 
taining concert in the Dan 
Rodden Theatre. Parent's 
weekend continued on 
Sunday morning with a 
buffet brunch served in the 
Ballroom. Finally, the La 
Salle Art Museum was 
open again, as was Hay- 
man Hall for both the par- 
ents and students to use for 
fun and exercise.

A Basketball Pep Rally transformed the quad into an array of col- 1

support. The Jazz band, too, illuminated the grassy field with its i

could relax and use their energy to support the basketball team. Ex- 1

AIDS Awareness 

. . . three life-saving events on campus 

by Sara Chiappa and Heather Olsen 

December 1 , 
1994 was rec- 
ognized by the 
La Salle com- 
munily as AIDS Aware- 
ness Day. A variety of or- 
ganizations on campus set 
up displays in the Union 
Ballroom for the benefit of 
faculty and students. The 
members of the organiza- 
tions supplied informations 
and statistics concerning 
AIDS, its effects and its 
unanswered questions. 
Shirts, pins, calendars and 
other items were sold to

and that WEXP AM would be 
no more in the fall. 

Determined to survive de- 
spite the administrative deci- 
sion, the station developed an 
S.O.S. (save our station) drive 
that garnished hundreds of 
signatures and dollars in sup- 
port of WEXP. Unfortunately, 
the drive was too little, too 

When the Fall 1988 semes- 
ter arrived, WEXP radio was 
gone. As a final statement 
against the administration, 
manager Stienman left La Sal- 
le. The remaining managers, 
however, had other ideas. 

That Fall, the old members 
of the station utilized a special 

WEXP radio first 
entered the La 
Salle scene in 
the early 1970"s 
when AM radio was far more 
popular than FM radio. It was 
primarily formed as an alter- 
native channel for students to 
voice their opinions about the 
Vietnam War and entertain 
students in the new student 
union. With a small staff and 
limited facilities, WEXP went 
through various format chang- 
es that included easy listen- 
ing, adult contemporary, and 
album-oriented rock. First 
broadcasting at the 640 fre- 
quency on the AM dial, EX- 
Plorer 64 experienced mod- 
erate success before interest 
began to slip. 

Towards the end of the 
1970's, the station managers, 
who wanted to expand the sta- 

fund that was left to the radio 
station in the memory of 
Charles "Chip" McKenny, a 
deceased disc jockey to pur- 
chase new transmitters. Then, 
after forming a new executive 
board and solid plan for the 
future, WEXP returned to the 
airwaves in January of 1989. 
This new station EXPress 
530 still broadcasted on the 
AM dial, but then general 
manager, Scott Dill expanded 
its range to all ten dorms on 
campus, as well as the student 
union. While the administra- 
tion continued to doubt the ef- 
forts and long-term existence 
of this new station, WEXP 
quickly became the largest 

student organization on cam- 
pus. Within two months, 
WEXP began its signature 
event. The Battle of the 
Bands, and played a major 
role in the 1989 Spring Fling. 
As the popularity of the sta- 
tion grew, WEXP started to 
receive the respect of the ad- 
ministration that it still holds 
today. In January of 1990. 
WEXP became the home of 
Explorer Basketball live from 
the Civic Center. When Lio- 
nel Simmons scored his 
3.000th point there wasn't a 
radio in campus that wasn't 
tuned in to WEXP. The sta- 
tion was going up and never 
coming back.

waiting for arrives. 

tion's broadcasting range, 
played with the station trans- 
mitter so that WEXP could be 
heard from Maine to Miami. 
During the evening of the 
"boost," the station received 
requests from as far away as 
Albany, New York. Needless 
to say, within twenty-four 
hours, the Federal Communi- 
cations Commission paid a 
visit to La Salle and immedi- 
ately shut WEXP down. 

As La Salle moved into the 
1980's with a new Commu- 
nication major, students, once 
again, wanted a college radio 
station. Soon, WEXP was re- 
born. This time, however, the 
station was closely scrutinized 
by the administration. Oper- 
ating with a Heavy Metal for- 
mat, that seemed to encourage 
a "bad boy" image, WEXP 
broadcasted to the student un- 

ion on the 640 AM frequency. 

WEXP's status remained 
the same until 1987, when a 
transmitter was purchased that 
enabled residents living in 
Saint Edward and Saint Fran- 
cis dorms to tune in. Then, as 
more and more students be- 
came interested in EXPlorers 
64. the station managers be- 
gan a movement to purchase 
a PM license. 

Led by then general man- 
ager, Marc Stienman, staff 
members began to outline a 
plan and stimulated interest 
for FM radio at La Salle. The 
movement ended in February 
of 1988. The station had to 
wait until they returned from 
Spring Break to learn if La 
Salle would get an FM station. 
When they returned, WEXP 
was informed that FM radio at 
La Salle was an impossibility.

Sweet Charity

This seemed to be the 
theme of Neil Simon's the- 
atre production of Sweet 
Charity, the Masque's 
1995 spring musical. 

Charity Valentine 
(played by Kirsten Quinn) 
is a dance hall hostess who 
seems to find love in all the 
wrong places, with all the 
wrong men. 

The play opens as Char- 
ity's boyfriend throws her 
in a lake and takes away all 
of her money. She then 
goes to work where her fel- 
low hostesses tell her to 
wise up in her choices of 
men and get her life togeth- 
er. These girls are positive 
that there has to be some- 
thing better than the life 
they have each been living, 
but they are not quite sure 
what exactly that is. 

Charity, unlike the other

girls, attempts to make her 
life better. She goes to the 
YMCA to partake in a self- 
awareness therapy session. 
Unfortunately, she be- 
comes trapped in an ele- 
vator with Oscar Lindquist 
(played by Brian Farrell). 

This encounter leads to a 
romance with Oscar and it 
finally seems as if Chari- 
ty's life is about to make 
drastic changes for the bet- 
ter. But, as Charity finds 
out, you never know what 
the fickle hand of fate has 
in store for you. 

Sweet Charity was di- 
rected by first-time La Sal-

and was produced by sen- 
ior Brian Farrell.

Salic Uni\ersil> is 
an organization dedicated to 
both the student body ;ind

the executive board are 
elected in April, while the 
freshmen senators are elect-

to represent the student 
body on the \arious Univer- 
sity committees including 
Student Affairs and the Ac-

The SGA also tries to en- 
hance the community by 
cosponsoring various events 
such as Spring Fling and 
Black History Month. 
Through these cosponsor-

Student Government Association 


by Loretta Shirley - 

Holding fast 
to the first 
ment, a 
group of aspiring jour- 
nalists take pride in 
their publication of 
campus news and stu- 
dent ideas. Each year, 
a motivated and polit- 
ically activated staff 
searches the La Salle 
campus for the unique 
viewpoints, individual 
perspectives and per- 
sonal beliefs that. 

when represented in- 
deed has been the pur- 
pose of Editor-in- 
Chief Brian Howard 
and his 1994-1995 
staff. These La Salli- 
ans have produced a 
forum for news and 
ideas that single-hand- 
edly serves the cam- 
pus community a les- 
son in appreciation for 
and respect of the var- 
ying arguments that 
directs people's ac- 
tions and convictions. 

Readers are not en- 
couraged to passively 
digest the Collegian's 
contents; rather, they 
are invited to react to 
the writing, to discuss 
the papers' contents 
with other students 
and maybe, even to 
write back themselves. 
The "Collegians" 
are brave and bold re- 
porters who accept the 
college challenge 
head-on. They devote 
countless hours of in- 

terviewing, writing, 
editing, typesetting 
and layout design to 
fashion a professional 
publication. News re- 
porters scope the cam- 
pus for the latest word 
on La Salle events, 
sports writers deliver 
the statistics of the 
most popular campus 
athletes, and entertain- 
ment editors provide 
commentary on the 
movies, theater and 
music that shapes stu- 

dent social life. 

In addition to Brian 
Howard, the Collegian 
was anchored this year 
by the collaborative 
efforts of Jen Weikert 
(Managing Editor), 
Lori Hill (News Edi- 
tor), Lori Litchman

Every September 
a group of stu- 
dents gather to- 
gether and as- 
semble in the hopes of suc- 
cessfully publishing a 
yearbook which will both 
be representative of their 
campus as well as being 
consistent in form and con- 
tent. Such a task is never an 
easy one. Fortunately for 
the staff of the 1995 Ex- 
plorer, they were not start- 
ing from ground zero in 
September. This represent- 
ed the second full year that 
this particular staff sat 
down together and organ- 
ized their talents for exact- 
ly this purpose. Under the 
direction of Editor-in- 

Chief John Schmitt and as- 
sociate editor Loretta Shir- 
ley, the Explorer staff con- 
tinued to learn the ins and 
outs of student publishing 
while having a tremendous 
amount of fun at the same 
time. Residing in the 
friendly confines of Union 
300, the staff of the Ex- 
plorer spent countless 
hours cropping photos, 
chasing feature stories, de- 
signing layouts, eating piz- 
za, playing with hair scrun- 
chies and dancing on the 
window sill to the beat of 
WEXP. Despite the noto- 
riety that the Explorer staff 
receives from the rest of 
the La Salle community, 
the staff members forged 

ahead and wounded up 
producing the finest chron- 
icle of the La Sallian tra- 
dition and experience that 
La Salle has ever seen! The 
contributions of the other 
two executive staff mem- 
bers — Dave Castellano 
(Senior Section) and Susan 
Hassett helped pave the 
way for the contributions 
made by the other staff 
members. Under the direc- 
tion of Ms. Rosalie Lom- 
bardo (Student Modera-

succeeded in what it set out 
to do this year — providing 
"Campus Wide Cover-

Inter Fraternity Sorority Council 

by John Schmitt — 

Fostering lead- 
ership on 
campus is al- 
ways looked 
upon as one of the pri- 
mary goals of any stu- 
dent organization. For 
the Inter fraternity-so- 
rority council this is 
their primary objec- 
tive. Consisting of 
representatives from 
each of the fourteen 
sororities and fraterni- 
ties the IFSC meets on 
a weekly or bi-weekly 
basis. Headed by De- 
rek Loranca, the IFSC 
discusses such perti- 
nent issues as in- 
creased community 
service and improving 
relations among the 
members of La Salle's 
Greek community. 
The IFSC gives each 
sorority and fraternity 
a forum in which they 
can express concerns 
and strive to improve 
the image which the 

Greeks present to all 
members of the La 
Salle community. 

The IFSC falls un- 
der the direction and 
guidance of Assistant 
Student Life director 
Karen Shields who 
works actively with all 
of the Greek organi- 
zations to ensure that 
they live up to all of 
the standards and 
service commitments 
that their charters stip- 
ulate. Representatives 
from each of the fra- 
ternities and sororities 
are chosen to repre- 
sent their groups on 
the merits of indivdual 
leadership and initia- 
tive. The IFSC also 
serves as an excellent 
source of support for 
other organizations of 
campus who wish to 
organize service pro- 
jects and fund-raising 

The IFSC is the bridge 
between the members 
of Fraternities and So- 
rorities and the admin- 
istration and student 
body. It also links fra- 
ternities and sororities 
in a special way.

Alpha Chi Rho 

by Charles J. Hubbard 


Ipha Chi 
Rho is a na- 
tional I'ra- 
t c r n i t \ 
which has existed for 
100 years, and we the 
Omega Phi chapter 
came into existence at 
La Salle University on 
February 14, 1975. 
Our fraternity is based 
on four principles 
which we call our 
Landmarks. These 
Landmarks are what 
govern our fraternity 
and establish our ide- 
als. The four Land- 
marks are as follow: 

1 ) Membership 
from among those 
who are prepared to 
realize in word and 
deed the Brotherhood 
of all men. 

2) The insistence on 
a high and clean moral 

3) The paramount 
duty of brotherly love 
among members. 

4) Judgement not 
by externals but by in- 
trinsic worth. No one 
is denied membership 
in Alpha Chi Rho 
based on race, creed, 
or nationality. 

Since the Brother- 
hood of Alpha Chi 
Rho has started at La 
Salle University it has 
flourished and has 
shown to the La Salle 
community the bene- 
fits it has to offer. 
Over the past twenty 
years we have fulfilled 

our responsibilities as 
a service fraternity by 
doing numerous serv- 
ice projects for the La 
Salle community to 
help it become a better 
place. We have also 
proven ourselves to be 
beneficial to the stu- 
dents who join our fra- 
ternity in scholastic, 
financial and social 
ways. Our goal as a 
fraternity is not only to 
help out the brothers 
who are a part of our 
fraternity, but to reach 
out and help the com- 
munity as a whole. We 
have fulfilled our goal 
in many ways that can 
prominently be seen 
around campus and 
we are continuing to 
leave our mark as an 
organization through 
our service projects as 
well as our social 

Overall, we the 
Brothers of Alpha Chi 
Rho have established 
the tightest bond 
amongst ourselves 
that can ever be 
reached by men and I 
have never seen a 
tighter group of 
friends. In turn we use 
our strength as a group 
to help others and en- 
hance the entire La 
Salle community. 
These are the ideals 
which we have stood 
by for over 100 years 
and will continue to 
live by and uphold.

Esse Qiiani Vi-

As sisters of the Delta Phi

more than just remember 
this motto: we live it. We 
are the best of what em- 
bodies a sorority. Not on- 
ly do we exemplify what 
good sisters should be but 
we distinguish oursehes 
as individuals, as well as 
a group, in the commu- 
nity around us. 

The sisters of D Phi E 
are all unique indi\ iduals 
who are affiliated with a 
number of interests out- 
side of the sorority. We 
are commonly seen par- 
ticipating in such campus 
groups as the Masque, 
RSA, Campus Ministry, 
and Student Life, just to 
name a few. In addition 
to these many of us hold 
jobs, either on campus or 
off, or non-paid intern- 
ships. More than a few 
sisters are student teach- 
ers as well. We are a di- 
versified group of women 
who obviously believe 
that an education lies be- 
yond the classroom. Del-

to achieve our goals and 
still devote time to ensur-

suffering from anorexia 
nervosa and other eating 

disorders. Fund raising 
for these organizations is 
done each year through 
collecting money on City

raffles. Through these 
and other projects we at- 
tempt to improve the 
lives of those in our com-

women but a fellowship 
of loyalty and friendship 
as well. The sisters have 
come together not only to 
better the sorority but 
each other as well. It has 
been observed both in 
and out of the organiza- 
tion that support for in- 
dividuals by the sorority 
as a whole is overwhelm- 
ing. In short, the individ- 
uals that comprise our 
group are obviously cher- 
ished. We pride ourselves 
on our varied interests as 
each of us brings a differ- 
ent face to D Phi E. We 
learn from experiences 
that each sister brings to 
the group as well as the 
experiences we share to- 

We are proud to be the 
sisters of Delta Phi Epsi- 
lon. As we celebrate our 
10th anniversary here at 
La Salle we are dedicated 
to making a renewed ef- 
fort to maintain the integ- 
rity of a sisterhood found- 
ed almost eighty-seven 
years ago.

^Hjl back to 
11, 1874. Gamma Phi 
was founded here at 
La Salle on December 
10, 1983 making it the 
first international so- 
rority on La Salle's 
campus. The women 
of Gamma Phi Beta 
are a diverse group 
whose object is to de- 
velop the highest type 
of womanhood 
through education, so- 
cial life, and service. 
The sisters of Gamma 
Phi Beta are encour- 
aged to participate in 
campus life, hold lead- 
ership positions, and 
take advantage of the 
benefits of an interna- 
tional sorority. Gam- 
ma Phi Beta has many 
wonderful opportuni- 
ties to offer young 
women and fortunate- 
ly those opportunities 
do not end when one 
graduates La Salle 
University or any oth- 
er College. The sisters 
of Gamma Phi will be 
sad to see their seniors 
leave but know that 
they will be joining an 
ever active alumnae. 
Gamma Phi offers its 
sisters assistance 
when relocating, find- 
ing jobs, and also 

when one finds diffi- 
culty in meeting hfe's 
challenges. These 
services and programs 
are made possible 
through Sisterlink, 
TransSISter and 

The sisters of Gam- 
ma Phi Beta here at La 
Salle have been rec- 
ognized Nationally for 
their excellence in ed- 
ucation, their service 
to the surrounding 
community through 
the Philadelphia Cares 
service project, their 
motion to establish a 
Panhellenic Council 
on La Salle's campus 
to improve Greek life, 
the support it gives 
other campus organi- 
zations, its involve- 
ment in Campus activ- 
ities such as intramur- 
als, and also for the so- 
cial events which 
always prove to be a 
great time for all those 
in attendance. 

Congratulations sis-

ta! Best of luck to the 
sisters who are be-

hen t h e 
tives from 
eight col- 
leges and universities 
united in 1953 to pro- 
mote their commit- 
ment to service. Gam- 
ma Sigma Sigma was 
born. Since then, our 
sorority has grown in 
their dedication to 
serve others. We now 
have more than 150 
chapters across the 
country and we are not 
going to stop there! 

La Salle's Delta 
Omega chapter was 
founded in 1974, and 
we were the first na- 
tional sorority on cam- 
pus. Our sorority is 
based on the ideals of 
friendship, service, 
and equality. Our 
main purpose at La 
Salle is to assemble 
university women in 
the spirit of service to 
the school, the com- 
munity, the nation, 
and ourselves. In do- 
ing this, we aim to de- 
velop friendships 
among women of all 
races and creeds. 

Since service is our 
primary goal, we do a 
number of projects on 

Gamma Sigma Sigma 


campus and around 
the community. These 
projects include par- 
ties at St. Christo- 
pher's Hospital for 
Children, sandwich 
making for the Home- 
less. play days at 
Building Blocks Nurs- 
ery Center, and 
canned food collec- 
tions for shelters and 
soup kitchens in the 
Philadelphia area. We 
also sponsor fundrais- 
ers for the Sunshine 
Foundation for termi- 
nally ill children and 
the Leukemia Society 
of America. We feel 
that our dedication to 
service allows us to 
develop friendships 
among ourselves and 
with our community. 
Through social events 
such as formals, sister 
nights out, scavenger 
hunts, and informal 
get-togethers, we 
build on that friend- 
ship to help promote 
equality throughout 
our sisterhoods, our 
campus and our city. 
There can be no 
boundaries, and no 
limitations when you 
unite to serve human-

Phi Gamma Delta 

by Daniel Burke — 

Welcome to 
one of the 
most pres- 
t i g i o u s 
fraternities in the 
world. With over 130 
undergraduate chap- 
ters and colonies in the 
United States and 
Canada, Phi Gamma 
Delta has helped 
young men grow and 
enrich their college 
years since 1848. FIJI 
offers a well-rounded 
opportunity to meet 
new people, excel ac- 
ademically, and share 
personal growth in a 
family atmosphere. A 
goal of Phi Gamma 
Delta is to build 
friendships, based up- 
on brotherhood, a kind 
of friendship which 
rises above any intel- 
lectual or social differ- 

In FIJI, you will 
find men who genu- 
inely care about you 
and your success as a 
person and as a stu- 
dent. There are as 
many different defini- 
tions of fraternity life 
as there are Brothers 
who make up the per- 
sonality of a chapter. 
It is the experience of 
brotherhood and of 
sharing ideals and ac- 
ademic goals which 

leads to lifelong 
friendships ... the ob- 
jective of Phi Gamma 
Delta. FIJI can be bro- 
ken down into many 
different facets from 
the commitment to 
support the finding a 
cure to Multiple Scle- 
rosis ... to helping La 
Salle in recruiting 
high school students . 
. . to being involved 
and successful in in- 
tramurals ... to schol- 
arships and awards . . 
. to chapter social 
events and civic activ- 
ities. Phi Gamma Del- 
ta .. . FIJI . . . two 
good names for one 
great Fraternity! 

Founded in 1848, at 
Jefferson College in 
Canonsburg, Pennsyl- 
vania, Phi Gamma 
Delta was an idea con- 
ceived by six men who 
had common aspira- 
tions and goals. They 
had in mind to include 
within their secret so- 
ciety men of distin- 
guished attributes, 
high ambition, and a 
sense of honor. These 
original ideas serve as 
the guide for the mem- 
bers of Phi Gamma 
Delta. FIJI is part of 
your world and 
achieving the highest 
standards. Perge!

bv Joe Zucchero 


ver since the 
KE chapter 
of Phi Kap- 
pa Theta 
fraternity came on 
campus, it has been a 
crucial element of the 
life at La Salle Uni- 
versity. The brothers 
of Phi Kap feel broth- 
erhood is very impor- 
tant. The brothers of 
Phi Kap have put a lot 
of emphasis on growth 
of the individual and 
the surrounding com- 
munity. This is evi- 
dent with their partic- 
ipation with Multiple 
Sclerosis, Building 
Blocks Program, Big 
Brother/Big Sister As- 
sociation, and the 
Drive Alert Arrive 
Alive Program. Phi 
Kap has also spon- 
sored many events. 
The successful "Bid 
For Bodies" event 
which benefited Mul- 
tiple Sclerosis is one 
example. Several oth- 
er events were spon- 
sored this year by Phi 
Kap with the help of 
the Student Govern- 

ment Association. 

The well rounded 
brothers of Phi Kappa 
Theta excel in aca- 
demics and athletics. 
Some examples are 
the Fraternity League 
Champions in foot- 
ball, as well as the 
very talented basket- 
ball team. Although 
the athletics are al- 
ways dominating, the 
overall academic per- 
formance has been ris- 
ing every semester, 
which shows the fra- 
ternity's dedication to 
academic perform- 

A person outside of 
this fraternity could 
not possibly under- 
stand the special bond 
that all of the members 
of Phi Kappa Theta 
possess. Whether it be 
at a party, just hanging 
out, or honoring our 
late Dennis Dougher- 
ty, the members of Phi 
Kap are always striv- 
ing to better them- 
selves and the others 
around them.

Phi Kappa Theta 

by Chuck Shields — 

When the 
rush week 
of Fall 
1994 came 
around, I had little or 
no intention of pledg- 
ing any fraternal or- 
ganizations. Prior to 
this school year, I was 
a commuter student 
with little knowledge 
or care of what frater- 
nities were all about. 
Then, during Rush 
week, a few new 
friends of mine (from 
the fraternity I am 
presently a member) 
convinced me to come 
over to a Rush func- 
tion. Overlooking the 
obvious attractions to 
fraternity life, I no- 
ticed something dif- 
ferent. When I was at 
this function, I was 
never alone. I could 
see all the brothers 
working together for 
one common goal. I 
was very impressed 
with this organiza- 
tion's will to succeed. 
I wondered what else 
this fraternity could 
accomplish when they 
all got together to do 
something. That is 
when I had a conver- 
sation with the presi- 
dent and he told me 
about a lot of their 
community activities 
and other things they 
had to offer and are 
trying to accomplish. 
He made me want to 
become a brother, so I 
could contribute to the 

Pi Kappa Phi 

fraternity. I then ex- 
plored other fraterni- 
ties throughout the 
week to see if all 
Greek life was the 
same. Although most 
of the other organiza- 
tions seemed to work 
hard and together, 
there just was a differ- 
ent and unexplainable 
unity at Pi Kappa Phi. 
That unity is the main 
reason I pledged to Pi 
Kappa Phi. 

Greek life at La Sal- 
le University, to me, 
means unity and com- 
petitiveness at the 
same time. There is an 
undeniable competi- 
tive spirit around cam- 
pus for each fraternity 
and sorority to be- 
come the best Greek 
organization on cam- 
pus. This competitive- 
ness drives each or- 
ganization to keep do- 
ing the most it can do 
around campus to con- 
tinue a good reputa- 
tion. But, all the Greek 
organizations work to- 
gether in order to give 
the entire La Salle 
Greek society an un- 
tarnished reputation 
around campus. I am 
currently a member of 
the Internal Fraternity 
Sorority Council and I 
get to see first hand 
the support that each 
organization gives to 
each other for campus 
projects and entertain-

Sigma Phi Epsilon 

by Michael Sielski 

During the 
year, Sig- 
ma Phi Epsilon at La 
Salle University con- 
tinued its tradition of 
all-around excellence 
in the varying facets of 
college life. The fra- 
ternity again empha- 
sized the growth of the 
community, as well as 
the individual, and 
strove to live out its 
three cardinal princi- 
ples: virtue, diligence, 
and brotherly love. 

Sig Ep"s crowning 
contribution to the La 
Salle community took 
place in November of 
1994, as the brothers 
assisted the La Salle 
ROTC in raising funds 
to build a flagpole 
dedicated to La Salle's 
Korean and Vietnam 
War veterans. The 
flagpole now stands 
behind Hank De- 
Vincent Baseball 
Field as a perpetual re- 
minder of those Ex- 
plorers who gave their 
lives for their country. 

In addition, Sig Eps 
continued to make in- 
dividual contributions 
to the University in 
1994-1995 via on- 
campus activities. 
Several brothers serve 
as student leaders in 
organizations across 
campus, including the 
Masque, the Colle- 
gian. Student Govern- 
ment, the La Salle ice 
hockey team. Campus 
Ministry, and many 
more. The fraternity 
itself also excels in 
various intramural 
sports, especially foot- 
ball, volleyball, and 
soccer. Furthermore, 
Sig Ep once again il- 
lustrated its commit- 
ment to academics by 
compiling the highest 
G.P.A. among frater- 
nities at La Salle. 

Above all else, Sig- 
ma Phi Epsilon carries 
and holds dear an in- 
tegrity beyond re- 
proach. A Sig Ep is a 
man who respects oth- 
ers, and he is a man 
who is respected.

the most 
pubhcized portion of a 
college or university is 
typically its athletic 
program. Athletes and 
the sports they play 
serve as the mecha- 
nism by which school 
spirit and energy are 
generated and sus- 
tained. The excitement 
of a campus 
which brings 
so many 
people to- 
gether for a 
purpose is 
without par- 
allel in the 
building of 
school and 
spirit. This is - 

precisely the reason 
why athletes are so re- 
vered in our society — 
they are the producers 
of the spirit and ex- 
citement which sports 
fans consume in enor- 
mous quantities. 

La Salle athletics 
provide the same kind 
of social excitement to 
the students, staff and 
members of the La 

Salle community. Our 
basketball, soccer and 
swimming programs 
are usually the most 
recognizable in gen- 
erating La Salle tradi- 
tion and pride. How- 
ever, the collective ef- 
forts of the other fif- 
teen varsity programs 
all are vital aspects of 
La Salle athletics. On 
the surface, we will al- 

ways remember the 
great names, events 
and records that were 
set. However, we of- 
ten overlook the 
events and memories 
that are among those 
historic moments. 
This year's edition of

worked hard to cover 
all of the twenty-one

limp out

ly start!" 

— was the message that 
field hockey coach Kathy 
De Angelis probably 
tried to imprint on her 
team as the 1994 fall sea- 
son approached. Unfor- 
tunately, this was not 
quite the end result. The 
lady Explorers began 
their third season under 
De Angelis (University 
of Massachusetts, "92) 
with a seven game losing 
streak. Hard fought losses 
to Villanova, Yale and 
Davis & Elkins came by 
the slimmest of margins 

— 1-0. These close 
matches coupled with 
seven additional shutouts 
paved the way for a dis- 
appointing 4-14-1 final 
record and a failure to 
make the MCC playoffs. 

It was the inability to 
score combined with for- 
ty-seven goals allowed 
that resulted in yet anoth- 
er long season for the 
field hockey program. 

Despite these obvious 
disappointments, the 
women have many posi- 
tives to look forward to in 
the years to come. 
Among the sixteen mem- 
ber woman roster were 
nine freshmen and soph- 
omores. These newcom- 
ers are led by the experi- 
ence and leadership of 
seniors Stephanie Irvine, 
Jen Hoopes, Maura Gaff- 
ney and Renae Rutigli- 
ano. Stephanie Irvine out 
of Sacred Heart High 
School in Gladwyne, PA, 
started all nineteen games 
for the Explorers at mid- 
field and posted one goal 
and three assists for the 

season. Maura Gaffney 
(Villa Marie) also started 
all nineteen games with a 
scoring ledger of three 
goals and one assist at the 
forward position. Senior 
Renae Rutigliano proved 
to be the rock for the Ex- 
plorers as she anchored 
the defense. Renae also 
led the team with shots on

Every year the 
tennis pro-

problem — sandwich-

fall schedule consisted 
of matches against Le- 
high, St. Joseph's, 
Drexel, Lafayette, 
Wagner and Seton 
Hall. Typically the 
men do not have as 
rigorous a fall sched- 
ule as do the women. 
When all was said and 

done, the men were 
only able to compile a 
1-2 record. The victo- 
ry came at the expense 
of St. Joseph' s on Sep- 
tember 21. Losses 
came at the hands of 
Lehigh (September 
18) and Fordham (Oc-

Because of the re-

Off the racquet, over the net, in our face, nothing but a srvice break! 

Every year the 
tennis pro- 
gram at La 
Salle faces the same 
problem — sandwich- 
ing a long and inactive 
winter off-season be- 
tween two very busy 
seasons of competi- 
tion and practice. This 
year proved no differ- 
ent for the La Salle 
Explorers women's 
tennis program in 
1994-1995. Under the 
guidance of head 
coach Susan Burke 
and assistant coach 
Harold Conway, the 
squad which consists 
of seven women had 
to prepare for both a 
busy fall and spring 
schedule of matches. 
The fall schedule con- 
sisted of matches 
against Bucknell, St. 
Joseph's, Drexel, La- 
fayette, Textile, Cop- 
pin State, Towson 
State, Monmouth, 
Fairleigh Dickinson, 
Delaware and Rider 
College. Interestingly, 
all but one of their 
matches were at home. 
Unfortunately, the 
home court advantage 
was not very advanta- 
geous as the women 
were only able to com- 
pile a 3-7 record. The 
victories on the slate 

came at the expense of 
Textile on October 4, 
Coppin State on Oc- 
tober 8 and against 
Fairleigh Dickinson 
on October 18. 

Because of the rel- 
atively small size of 
her team, coach Burke 
had to spend an im- 
mense amount of time 
on practice and teach- 
ing the finer points of 
competitive collegiate 
tennis. Their early fall 
season, Burke 
thought, would allow 
the ladies to adequate- 
ly prepare for the pres- 
tigious Delaware State 
Tournament held in 
late October. Seniors 
Amy Binns (Sacred 
Heart Academy), Me- 
gan Lyall (Frederick 
Douglass High 
School) and Jeanne 
Montana (West Mil- 
ford High School) 
provided the leader- 
ship for Burke who 
looked for ways to 
season her three fresh- 
men into the competi- 
tive world of colle- 
giate tennis. For coach 
Burke, the fall season 
serves as a great prac- 
tice tool and basis for 
preparing for the more 
rigorous spring season 
which begins tradi- 
tionally in April.

A Great Mixture 
for Success 

by John Schmitt 

^■^ ast year must 
H J have seemed like 
-^^-^ a nightmare for 
La Salle men's soccer 
coach Pat Farrell. He had 
the classic example of a 
house divided. He had 
seniors who had grown 
accustomed to losing. 
What made it worse was 
that no one seemed to 
care. The 1994 season 
proved to be very differ- 
ent in many ways how- 
ever. First it saw the 
emergence of a competi- 
tive, winning attitude 
which would vault the 
Explorers to their best 
regular season record in 
the past few years. Sec- 
ondly, it saw the emer- 
gence of a star freshman 
mid-fieldman from Sale- 
sianum High School who 
in his first year led all Ex- 
plorers in scoring and as- 

Starting out their sea- 

son with a victory against 
Virginia Commonwealth 
by a score of 5-1 was 
thought to be a positive 
omen for the upcoming 
season. However, back- 
to-back losses to home- 
town rivals Pennsylvania 
and Drexel soured the 
budding enthusiasm of 
the men's soccer team. 
What happened next was 
the stimulus for what be- 
came a campus-wide re- 
surgence in interest for 
the program. Victories 
against Lehigh, St. Jo- 
seph's and Butler round- 
ed out a string of twelve 
games which would see 
the Explorers emerge tri- 
umphant on ten different 
occasions. Integral in this 
success was freshman 
mid-fieldman Cesidio 
Colasante. In his first sea- 
son as an Explorer, Cesi- 
dio netted eighteen goals 
and picked up helpers on 

eleven others. When all 
was said and done, Cesi- 
dio had started all nine- 
teen games and recorded 
a team high forty-seven 
points. Also contributing 
to team scoring were sen- 
iors Kevin Gerry and 
Dave Steinbach who ac- 
counted for seventeen 
goals and fifty points col- 
lectively. Also providing 
key efforts for coach Far- 
rell were junior Harold 
Ivery, freshman Ed 
Woehlcke and sopho- 
more Eric Meisler all of 
whom also started all of 
the Explorers' games this 
season. Despite their dis- 
appointing first round ex- 
it from the MCC play- 
offs, the Explorers are 
looking forward to the 
blossoming talent of Co- 
lasante and making their 
presence felt in post-sea- 
son play next season. 

Fending off a Ram is never easy — but La Salle easily handled the 
challenge of opening day opponent Virginia Commonwealth. 

Salesianum phenom Cresidio Colasante added a much needed scor- 
ing presence to the Explorer squad this year. With a tally of eight- 
een goals and eleven assists, Cresidio led all scorers this season.

Inconsistent Play 

by John Schmitt 

As the 1994- 
1995 school 
year ap- 
proached, head coach 
Craig Dorman wondered 
what shape his lady Ex- 
plorers" season would 
take. Entering their third 
season in the MCC, the 
lady's soccer team began 
league play against Notre 
Dame in South Bend on 
September 4th. Unfortu- 
nately, the lady Explorers 

didn't have 

the firepow- 
er to stay 
with the 
Irish as they 
fell to defeat 
by a score of 
5-0. Stunned 
Lauri Mc- 
and Erin 
Able got 
their team- 
mates fo- 
cused on 
their next 
task — a next day match 
against Loyola of Chica- 
go. This time the Explor- 
ers got the better of their 
opponent and returned 
home for the beginning 
of classes with an impres- 
sive 2-1 victory. 

Despite leveling them- 
selves at .500, the Ex- 
plorers began a series of 
games which would see 
them lose eight of nine 
and going winless until 
October 10th against lo- 

cal rival Drexel Univer- 
sity. Confused and puz- 
zled by their 1-8-1 rec- 
ord, Dorman and assis- 
tant coach Molly 
O'Connell took their 
squad back to the basics 
— focusing on defensive 
schemes and improved 
team play in hope of 
arousing the spirits and 
changing the fortunes of 
a team composed of ten 
freshmen and sopho-

mores. It appeared as 
though their efforts began 
to pay off as the ladies 
were able to run off three 
victories in a five game 
stretch. However, the 
wind was taken from 
their sails as they finished 
the season with three 
straight losses to Villan- 
ova, Delaware and 
Wright State. 

Despite a disappoint- 
ing 4-13-1 record and be- 
ing outscored 17-45 by 

their opponents, the lady 
Explorers were not with- 
out key performers 
throughout the season. 
Leading scorers for the 
women junior Gabriella 
Parrino and senior Erin 
Able — who each had 
eight points to their 
name. Erin was also one 
of only three players to 
start and play in all eight- 
een games this season — 
the other two being fresh-

A Fractured 

by John Schmitt 

During each 
of the past 
two sea- 
sons, the lady's Vol- 
leyball team at La Sal- 
le has suffered medi- 
ocre win-loss records. 
Coached by Mr. John 
Kunzier, the women 
were looking to im- 
prove upon their for- 
tunes as the 1994 sea- 
son got underway. Be- 
ginning with a match 
on the second of Sep- 
tember against Wag- 
ner University, La Sal- 
le attempted to set 
themselves on the 
right foot at the annual 
Seton Hall Tourna- 
ment. A 3-0 match 
victory provided an 
early spark of excite- 
ment for the ladies 
who were led by cap- 
tains Jessica Arnold 
and Mary Costigan. 
This year's squad con- 
sisted of four seniors, 
two juniors, two soph- 
omores and three 
freshmen. Unfortu- 
nately for the Explor- 
ers, inexperience and a 
continual stream of 
mental mistakes ac- 
counted for a horren- 
dous losing streak 
which began after 
their opening day vic- 

tory and yet another 
which ended their sea-

Beginning with a 
loss to Bucknell, the 
Explorers lost fifteen 
consecutive matches 
before notching their 
second victory of the 
season against local 
foe and rival Drexel 
on October 4th. Un- 
fortunately, the enthu- 
siasm from this victo- 
ry was quelled with 
fourteen more consec- 
utive match defeats to 
close out the season. 
Left with a disappoint- 
ing 3-30 record, the 
Explorers were left to 
wonder what could 
have been with a few 
lucky breaks going 
their way. Freshman 
Megan McCulty and 
senior Mary Costigan 
finished up the year's 
campaign as the lead- 
ers in many of the 
team's statistical cate- 
gories. McCulty led 
the squad with forty- 
three aces while Cos- 
tigan led in games 
played (106), serving 
rebounds (61 ) and fin- 
ished second only to 
McCulty in attack 
kills with 175.

Success on the Mat 

by John Schmitt 

Being one of 
the least rec- 
ognized var- 
sity sports on a college 
campus can hardly be a 
desirable position for 
any athlete to be in- 
volved in. This would be 
especially true for a 
group of athletes who 
spend as much time in 
practice, after school 
training regimens and 
matches as do collegiate 
wrestlers. The long 
hours in the gym with 
weight training repre- 
sents only a small frac- 
tion of the skills needed 
to be able to go jaw-to- 
jaw with another so con- 
ditioned wrestler for a 
grueling four minute all 
out war. For La Salle 
University, their wres- 
tling team is entrusted to 
Fitness Center director 
Ed Lawless. Like others. 

Lawless has many of the 
above problems also ap- 
plying to his Explorer 
wrestling team. Typical- 
ly, La Salle can only 
muster one home match 
per year. This prevents 
extensive campus sup- 
port and enthusiasm 
from brewing during the 
course of the season. 

Lawless and the team 
will begin a typical sea- 
son in November and 
extend their competitive 
matches through the end 
of March with NCAA 
championships for those 
who properly qualify. 
This year's squad began 
their season with a 
"take-down" tourna- 
ment at Swarthmore 
University. This provid- 
ed an excellent chance 
for the Explorers to take 
out all of their frustra- 
tions that resulted from 

the many hours of in- 
house training inside 
Hayman Hall. It also 
provided an excellent 
foundation for future 
matches against St. 
John's, Haverford Col- 
lege and Ursinus. Next 
the Explorers began a 
series of multi-school 
tournaments which can 
see La Salle face more 
than one team challenge 
in a single day. Matches 
are spread out over a 
number of weight clas- 
ses and points are 
awarded on a team basis. 
Tough challenges from 
Princeton, Carroll, 
Scranton and Rutgers al- 
lowed the Explorers to 
prepare for NCAA qual- 
ifiers and ultimately for 
the NCAA champion- 
ships at Iowa State. 

Perfecting the winning move! Junior Jerome Mead instructs a 
teammate on tlie technique for a perfect leg lock. 

Careful words of warning! Head coach Ed Lawless prepares his

Cornerstones for 
Successful Season 

by Bob Vetrone 

With a start- 
ing five re- 
turn i ng, 
and some 
well regarded freshmen 
joining the program, 
the outlook at La Salle 
University appeared to 
be brighter and more 
promising than last sea- 
son — and, according 
to head coach 
"Speedy" Morris, it 
should be. For the first 
time in his 26 years of 
coaching, Morris saw 
one of his teams fall 
below the .500 mark, at 
11-16. It was also the 
first time for La Salle to

tough season leaves Explorers 

Thirsting for the 
Atlantic- 10 

by John Schmitt 

When the Ex- 
plorers started 
their 1994- 
1995 basket- 
ball schedule, their goal 
was simple — win the 
Midwestern Collegiate 
Conference and get back to 
the NCAA tournament. 
Desperately wanting to get 
back into the field of sixty- 
four, the Explorers started 
their march with an open- 
ing night game against 
Princeton. The Explorers 
came out and played the 
defense that Speedy Morris 
wanted and took it to Pete 
Carril's Tigers by a score 
of 58-49. Their next step 
was to take their success to 
the Met-Life Classic out in 
San Franciso. The Explor- 
ers returned triumphant 
with a trounament cham- 
pionship and an encourag- 
ing 3-0 record. Subsequent 
victories against Howard 
and Baylor left the hopes 
and aspirations for these 
Explorers sky high heading 
out to play top-five ranked 

Arizona. Unfortunately for 
La Salle, the large and 
rowdy crowd did not wel- 
come the Explorers and 
neither did the Wild Cats 
as Arizona won easily 92- 
76. This game seemed to 
be the beginning of the 
problems for the Explorers 
as they then fell to Joe 
Smith and the Maryland 
Terapins 96-80. 

At this point, Morris's 
team began what was to 
become a discouraging and 
often frustrating series of 
games. Beginning on Jan- 
uary 7th, the Explorers lost 
eleven of their next sixteen 
games by a total of 123 
points. The defense that 
had proved huge for the 
Explorers early in the sea- 
son began to falter and the 
lack of depth that the Ex- 
plorers had coming off 
their bench began to be- 
come quite evident. None- 
theless, the Explorers 
closed out their season 
with an 80-51 rout over 
Wisconsin-Milwaukee and 

hoped that they could start 
anew, likening this to the 
start of a second season. 
For the Explorers — their 
second season would start 
out in Dayton, Ohio — in 
the first round of the MCC 

Tragically, the Explor- 
ers would not be able to 
handle the pressure de- 
fense of Wisconsin-Green 
Bay as they saw their tour- 
nament dreams and the ca- 
reers of their backcourt 
tandem of Paul Burke and 
Kareem Townes come to a 
crashing halt with a 54-46 
loss to the Phoenix. The 
end result was the second 
consecutive losing season 
for Speedy Morris's Ex- 
plorers. Even the wel- 
comed news that La Salle 
would enter the Atlantic 
Ten conference next year 
could alleviate the ques- 
tions about yet another dis- 
appointing season for La 
Salle basketball. 

Derrick Newton, Jasper Van Tessing, Kareem Townes and Ro- 
maine Haywood all crash the boards in an attempt to block the shot 
of a Cleveland State Viking.

with 162 and finished his career with 563 placing him second on 
the all-time Explorer list.

looking for a going away 



by John Schmitt 

As fall prac- 
tive began 
for John 
Miller and 
his team this year, 
they had to put past 
them the success they 
had achieved through 
a 19-9 win-loss record 
in the 93-94 season. In 
addition they had to 
reforge a team which 
lost two starting letter- 
men to 
g r a d u a - 
tion. The 
loss of 
Mary Hell- 
er and Lisa 
A u m a n 
would pro- 
vide a 
good chal- 
lenge for 
the corps 
of new 
which was 
to emerge. The second 
year trio of Chrissie 
Donahue, Marnie 
McBreen and Anne 
Gallagher were ex- 
pected to provide big 
things and make up for 
the offensive void cre- 
ated by Heller and Au- 
man. In addition, new- 
comers Sarah Weiss, 
Katie Wolfe and Sarah 
Haynes were expected 
to quickly adapt to the 
fast, up-tempo style of 
the MCC. Returning 

lettermen Lori Spar- 
ling, Margit Rinke, 
Marci Willis, Allyson 
Blue, Stephanie Cod- 
de, Tina Wahl and Pa- 
trice McGovern 
rounded out coach 
Miller's squad. 

The season began in 
late November with a 
Big-5 match up 
against Pennsylania. 
The lady Explorers 

came out in a flurry 
and defeated the lady 
Quakers by the score 
of 75-64. Extending 
their play, the lady Ex- 
plorers were able to 
jump out to an impres- 
sive 8-1 start with 
their only loss coming 
to old-rival St. Jo- 
seph's. As the season 
went on it became ob- 
vious to coach Miller 
that he indeed had 
something special 
growing with this 

team. The Sophomore 
trio of McBreen, Gal- 
lagher and Donahue 
combined to average 
thirty-four points be- 
tween them. In addi- 
tion, the trio of Mc- 
Breen, Sparling and 
Rinke combined to 
pull down an impres- 
sive four hundred and 
ninety rebounds. The 
Explorers also re-

their sea- 
son with impressive 
victories against Loy- 
ola-Chicago, Notre 
Dame and Cleveland 
State to close out the 
regular season with a 
17-9 win-loss record. 
Chrissie Donoahue 
ended the season as 
high scorer with a 1 8.8 
ppg. average. In addi- 
tion, Donahue turned 
in season high per- 
formances in points 
and rebounds with 30 
and 15 respectively. 

Getting the ice treatment — can not be easy for sophomore Chrissie Donahue. Chrissie lead the Ex- 
plorers in scoring this jear with an 18.8 ppg. scoring average.

second season of new regime 


by John Schmitt 

Head coach John Miller and assistant coach Tom Lochner stress a strong team concept during practice. 
Here — during a game, the lady Explorers watch attentively as their teammates battle to one of their 
seventeen regular season victories. 

When the lady 
started their 
basketball schedule, their 
goal was simple — win the 
Midwestern Collegiate 
Conference and get to the 
NCAA tournament. As the 
second week of March be- 
gan, the lady Explorers 
were in a position to do just 
that. The Explorers started 
their drive for a tournament 
championship with a vic- 
tory over Cleveland State 
in the MCC Play-in game 
held at Hayman Hall ear- 
lier that week. The next 
step was to play the roll of 
the spoiler as they took on 
number three seed, Illinois- 
Chicago. The Explorers 
got out quickly and were 
able to upend ICU. The 
next opponent on the dock- 
et was to be Detroit Mercy. 
Once again, John Miller 
would have his team ready 
to play ball and the result 
was the same — a victory. 
By this point the ladies had 
accomplished exactly two- 
thirds of their objective. 
The last step would prove 
to be most difficult and un- 
fortunately the most heart- 
breaking as well. 

Standing in the way of 
the lady Explorers advanc- 
ing to the NCAAs were the 
lady Huskies from North- 
ern Illinois University. The 
games started out well for 
the Explorers who seemed 
to control the tempo of the 
first half as they slowly 
built themselves up to a 
five point advantage at 
half-time. Unfortunately, 

the Explorers were hit with 
an extreme drought of of- 
fense beginning at the start 
of the second half. During 
a five minute span the lady 
Explorers went scoreless 
as the lady Huskies 
climbed back into control 
of the game. For the re- 
mainder of regulation, the 
score alternated back and 
forth until the Huskies 
made what appeared to be 
a game clinching three- 
pointer with only seven- 
teen seconds remaining. 
After calling time-out. 
Miller set up the play he 
wanted to run — get the 
ball into the hands of his 
sharp shooters and hope 
for a "trey". This duty be- 
fell Mamie McBreen who 
drilled a shot from the cor- 
ner with just 2.4 seconds 
remaining. As the game 
headed into overtime, the 
Explorers quickly found 
themselves down by three 
points with only seconds 
remaining. What was need- 
ed became obvious once 
again as the lady Explorers 
desperately tried to sink 
another three-pointer. 
Chances by Lori Sparling, 
Mamie McBreen and final- 
ly by Chrissie Donahue 
were all unsuccessful as 
the Explorers were sent 
home empty handed with a 
80-77 loss. Despite their 
heartbreaking defeat — 
Miller and the rest of his 
team believed that their 
twenty victory season was 
something that could be 
built on for next year's 
drive to the NCAAs.

Upon entering

three years

later and on the eve of 
their departure from 
the MCC, the Explor- 
ers have captureed an 
unprecedented three 
straight champion-

pride of the campus. 
Conference champi- 
onships were held this 
year at Notre Dame 
and the Explorers 
quickly made South

their going away 
party. This champion-

rush from MCC new- 
comer Wright State to 
win their third cham-

rowest of margins. 
Their 46.5 point vic- 
tory was the culmina- 
tion of a successful 
season for head coach 
John Lyons who once 
again received coach

road to the champion- 
ship was not all that 
clearly paved though. 
The regular season 
saw constant ups and 
downs as the Explor- 
ers finished with a 7-4

this year, it appeared 
as though the Explor- 
ers would steamroll 
over the competition 
with a flurry of early 
victories. Unfortu-

slump befell the team 
and resulted in losses 
that most probably 
should have seen the 
Explorers leave tri-

less, the Explorers 
were able to rebound 
with a resounding win 
in the MCC's. This 
should undoubtedly 
lay the foundation for 
futures successes in

Searching for their Aquatic Identity 

by John Schmitt — 

Upon entering 
the MCC 
three years 
ago, head coach John 
Lyons and the Explor- 
ers sought to impress 
upon their new neigh- 
bors that they be- 
longed. Three years 
later and on the eve of 
their departure from 
the MCC, the lady Ex- 
plorers have been 
among the most suc- 
cessful teams in the 
conference and want- 
ed to end their stay 
with a championship 
banner to hang on the 
walls of Kirk pool. 
Conference champi- 
onships were held this 
year at Notre Dame 
and the Explorers 
wanted to make their 

presence felt early. 
Unfortunately, this 
championship was not 
meant to be as the Ex- 
plorers finished fourth 
with a team to- 
tal of 459 
points. As had 
happened ".. 
many times in 
the past, the la- 
dies found 
battling the 
Fighting Irish

to Notre Dame as they 
lead the field with 749

disappointing finish, 
head coach John

were pleased with 

what they saw. 

During the course 
of the weekend festiv-

the Explorers received 

" ... the Explorers should make 
a big splash when they enter the 
Atlantic Ten next year." 


standout performances 
from Dina Dorman, 
Melissa Heider, Pam 
Narcavage and Chris- 
tie Jones. Most im- 
pressive was the per- 
formance turned in by 
freshman Dorman. 
She finished second in 
the 500 yard relay, the 

1650 yard freestyle 
event as well as sec- 
ond in the 400 yard in- 
dividual. Her perform- 
ances in these races all 
notched her 
new La Salle 
time records. 
In addition, the 
foursome of 
Hieder, Narca- 
vage, Jones 
and Dorman 
finished fourth 
in both the 400 
and 800 yard freestyle 
events. The regular 
season saw constant 
ups and downs as the 
Explorers finished 
with a 6-6 win-loss 
record in league 
meets. Early on, it ap- 
peared as though the 
Explorers would 

steamroll over the 
competition with a 
flurry of early victo-

most probably should 
have seen the Explor- 
ers leave triumphant. 
Nonetheless, the Ex- 
plorers were able to 
rebound with a re- 
spectable showing in 
the MCC's. Propelled 
by their success and

A League Of 
Their Own 


by John Schmitt — 

When head 
coach Gene 
looked down his roster 
in the spring of 1994, 
he probably saw a lot 
of things he liked and a 
good number of which 
to be concerned about. 
The 1994 Explorers 
had only managed to 
compile a 10-36 win- 
loss record. Despite 
their poor record, the 
saw them- 
in most of 
their games 
— but in 
the end it 
was an ex- 
c e s s i V e 
number of 
errors and 
being out- 
scored by 
their oppo- 
nents by a 
2-1 ratio 
that proved to be the 
downfall of the club. 

Beginning their sea- 
son in mid-April, the 
1994 Explorers trav- 
eled to Boca Raton, 
Florida, to compete in 
an eight game tourna- 
ment series. Despite re- 
turning home with a 1- 
7 record, coach Mc- 
Donnell and crew were 
looking forward to be- 
gin their local schedule 
and attack the compe- 

tition posed by their 
MCC foes. Unfortu- 
nately, the pitching 
staff got shell-shocked 
for 65 runs during a 
five game stretch and 
the Explorers soon 
found themselves in a 
very deep 1-12 hole. 
The remaining portion 
of the schedule pitted 
the Explorers against 
such teams as Pennsyl- 
vania, Villanova and 

Notre Dame. Although 
occasionally showing 
signs of marked im- 
provement, the men 
were never able to 
compensate for poor 
pitching and lackluster

Unfortunately for 
the Explorers, their 
season has been wors- 
ened by the loss of two 
of their most seasoned 
veterans. Junior Amy 
Antonelli asked for a 
leave of absence to 
handle some personal 
problems while start- 
ing shortstop Kristin 
Biddle has been bat- 
tling through a series 
of discouraging and 
frustrating hamstring 
injuries. Losing Bid- 
die meant losing a 
lusty .325 batting av- 
erage from their line- 
up. Despite their hand- 
icaps the lady Explor- 
ers will continue to 
forge ahead in hope of 
recapturing their early 
season form and pre- 
paring for the MCC 
championships later in 
the spring. The lady 
Explorers have re- 
ceived standout per- 
formances this year 
from Jen Renter, Jen 
Bostak, Heather Su- 
dul, Beth Miller and 
Vicki Gross. 

Receiving the ball at second for an intended force play, Kristin Biddle has been able to tag the bag 
long before the base runner arrived at second base.

challenging of all race segments.

News of the 

by Susan Hassett 

ews flash . . . 
Nicole Brown 
found dead in 
her house along side 
her male friend Ron 
Goldman. Suspect: 
O.J. Simpson. This is 
the frighteningly real 
horror story that most 
people heard several 
months ago. Bloody 
glove, white Ford 
Bronco, Judge Lance 
Ito, and O.J.'s abusive 
history have all been 
key phrases in the trial 
of the decade. Exten- 
sive press and t.v. cov- 
erage has kept the pub- 
lic informed of the 
murder trial against 
former football star 
O.J. Simpson. 

The trial is based on 
the prosecutions evi- 
dence that Simpson 
had the motive (jeal- 
ousy), the opportunity 
(can't prove his where- 
abouts at the time of 
crime), and the means 
(has the physical 
strength to overcome 
both Nicole and Ron to 
commit this heinous 
crime. The Defense 
needs to prove a rea- 
sonable doubt to acquit 
O.J. They are basing 
their case on the idea 
that the evidence that 
puts Simpson at the 
scene of the crime was 
planted and that his 
abusive past has been 

falsely presented and 
taken out of context. 
Many "sub-trials" 
have taken place ques- 
tioning the lawyers 
presentation of facts 
and other issues. 

"The trial of the 
decade" has been tak- 
en by some as means to 
make money. There 
has been t-shirts, a tv- 
movie, book by O.J., 
and other books citing 
his status as ' 'The Fall- 
en Hero" and defend- 
ing the lives of Nicole 
Brown Simpson and 
Ronald Goldman. This 
brutal murder being 
turned into a media 
hyped scandal is just 
more proof of the de- 
clining values of our 
society. Instead of be- 
ing saddened at the 
shock of such violence, 
the media made the 
crime to be more like 
an action drama movie. 
There was an initialize 
shock wave sent 
through the world at 
the time of the murder 
and the accusation of 
O.J., but afterwards it 
was made into a scan- 
dal and speculating 
what went on behind 
closed doors in the 
lives of the deceased 
and of O.J. Simpson. 
This speculation causes 
an assumptive invasion 
of privacy and makes 
the brutal act turn into 

a media movie and 
raids it of all personal 

Although there is 
much to be said about 
the media overdrama- 
tizing the Simpson tri- 
al, one can learn much 
about the legal system 
through the trial. The 
legal system is tested to 
its limits in the intricate 
chain of events that 
proceed. Both sides are 
vehemently driven to 
win and each step clos- 
er to the truth will be 
hard won. Hopefully, 
some good will come 
of this tragedy and 
crimes of this nature ^/ 
will be prevented in the

Tide in 


by Loretta Shirley 

Reform bills, a 
new Su- 
preme Court 
Justice, a bi- 
zarre plane crash, a prom- 
ising spacewalk, and a 
plight of Cuban refugees 
characterize what was yet 
another intriguing year in 
American history. 

Domestic political suc- 
cess proved paradoxical. 
While a long-anticipated 
crime bill was signed by 
President Clinton, Hillary 
Rodham Clinton strug- 
gled furtively to convince 
Congress to adopt signif- 
icant health care reform. 
The crime law, officiated 
amid an elaborate cere- 
mony on the White 
House Lawn, banned 
many assault weapons, 
legalized the death pen- 
alty for more federal fel- 

onies, and invested bil- 
lions of dollars in prison 
development and police 
recruitment. The poten- 
tial Health Care Reform 
bill, however, lost the fa- 
vor of Congress — and 
largely the American 
public — due to its no- 
table complexity. Only 
those citizens who lacked 
sufficient health care cov- 
erage pledged open sup- 
port of Rodham Clinton's 
efforts. An unpersuaded 
Congress denied the 
Clinton's plea for univer- 
sal coverage; nonethe- 
less, President Clinton 
vowed publicly to ratify a 
reform bill which offers 
nothing less. 

The Supreme Court 
welcomed its newest 
member to the nation's 
highest judiciary board 

slightly sooner than ex- 
pected. Supreme Court 
Justice Stephen G. Brey- 
er, anxious to attend to 
the legal technicalities of 
his new position, was 
sworn into office nine 
days before the public 
ceremony. Chief Justice 
WiUiam Rehnquist offi- 
ciated Stephen's oath at a 
private gathering in the 
East Room of the White 
House. Breyer, formerly 
a federal appeals judge 
from Massachusetts, re- 
places retired Justice Har- 
ry Blackmun. 

The national political 
conscience faced a 
swarm of starving Cu- 
bans pleading to enter 
American terrain. Tens of 
thousands of desperate 
refugees drifted to Amer- 
ican shores in flight from 

the reckless poverty and 
hunger which has invad- 
ed Cuban lives. Floating 
upon oil drums, inner 
tubes and wooden planks, 
many did not complete 
the journey, stopped by 
storms, death or the U.S. 
Coast Guard. This year, 
the United States agreed 
to permit at least 20,000 
Cuban refugees to enter 
the country: likewise, Cu- 
ban leader Fidel Castro 
quelled the massive flight 
of boat people. Cubans 
were not granted asylum 
in the past. 

Symbolizing the per- 
sonal disillusionment of 
many Americans, a final 
and bizarre act of desper- 
ation led 38-year-old 
Frank Corder to steal a 
small plane and crash it 
upon the White House 

lawn. A truck driver from 
Baltimore, Tucker had re- 
cently suffered a marital 
breakup and the death of 
his father. Yet friends are 
puzzled by Corder' s in- 
tent — although publicly 
ruled a suicide, many be- 
lieve the accident to have 
been a stunt. 

Yet scientific and tech- 
nological development 
remains promising. As- 
tronauts Mark Lee and 
Carl Meade conducted 
the first untethered space 
walk in ten years. Float- 
ing freely 150 miles 
above the earth, the men 
used a nitrogen gas tank 
to propel themselves' 
completely around the 
shuttle's surface — with- 
out the aid of a lifeline to 
the mother ship.

Thej headed north on almost anythin); that would lloat, includlnj;

planks. They were Cuba's boat people — tens of thousands of peo- 
ple desperate to come to the United States to escape the poverty 
and hunger of their increasingly isolated Communist nation. 

The nation's 108th Supreme Court justice couldn't wait to get to 
work. So Stephen G. Breyer was sworn in at a private ceremony 
August 3; nine days before a public ceremony in the East Room of 
the White House. 

If the United States truly had a 
health care crisis in 1994, you 
couldn't have proved it by Con- 
gress. Despite the exhortations 
of President Clinton and the 
First Lady, the year ended with- 
out significant health insurance 

The Vear In Revievi 

A jet propelled astronaut unhooked his 
lifelines to the Space Shuttle Discovery 
and flew free, 150 miles above Earth. 
It was the first untethered spacewalk 
in ten years. Mark Lee was followed by 
fellow astronaut Carl Meade. They had 
but one jet pack between them — It 
cost $7 million, after all — and had to 
take turns. "This thing works like a 
champ," Lee said as he hovered over 
Discovery's cargo bay, firing the 
pack's 24 tiny nitrogen gas jets for pro- 
pulsion and steering with a joystick. In 
the trickiest exercise of the seven hour 
spacewalk, each astronaut propelled 
himself along the length of the shuttle 
arm, w hich bent at an angle. They then 
scooted from the shoulder to the elbow, 
around the bend, up to the elbow, and 
then back again — all without using 
their hands. 

Andre Agassi was one of the best known entrants in the 1994 U.S. Open, but a year of largely indifferent 
tennis had left him unseeded and unheralded. So everyone was amazed when he won the tournament 
— including Agassi himself.

The world politics 
of 1994-1995 in-

most part, ex-

tions. We have been wit-

in Rwanda, Haiti, Cuba, 
and Bosnia. Yet on an up 
note, we have also experi- 
enced a shift in the atmos- 
phere of the Middle East 
with the recent Peace 

The civil war in Rwanda 
is not a new development; 
it has been taking place for 
over three and a half years 
now. Thousands have lost 
their lives in the battle be- 
tween the Hutus and the 
Tutsis sparked by the as- 
sassination of President 
Habyarimana. A curious 
fact concerning these two 
groups is that they cannot 
be distinguished from one 
another according to schol- 
ars. An estimated figure 
between 500,000 and 1 
million people have been 
claimed as victims of four- 
teen weeks of continuous 
fighting. As of November 
1994, there were still ap- 
proximately two million 
Hutu refugees being held 
hostage by soldiers and ci- 
vilian militia who had not 
given up their struggle. At 
that time, relief agencies 
were considering a move 
to leave Rwanda since the 
U.N. had not yet sent in 
2000 peacekeeping forces. 
Theoneste Bagosora is the 
man being blamed for the 
massacre; however, he is 
not in captivity. Although 
this man is not "on the 
scene," so to speak, the 

threat of the killing is still 
present and perpetual 
peace is only a much 
hoped-for dream. 

In mid-October of this 
past year within Haiti, 
American soldiers were 
deployed under Operation 
Uphold Democracy. Their 
role was to stop the Haitian 
army, put an end to para- 
military groups, and ulti- 
mately keep the peace. As 
it now stands, Haiti is in 
very poor economic con- 
dition since being struck 
by the trade embargo. To 
make the situation even 
more complicated, the cit- 
izens have conflicts among 
themselves. Recently, in 
late January, an unfortu- 
nate event occurred which 
involved the death of Sgt. 
1st Class Gregory D. Car- 
dott, who was the first 
American soldier to die in 
Haiti. This occurred previ- 
ous to the switch of control 
to U.N. forces which is 
predicted to take place in 
March. However, Ameri- 
cans will still be involved 
since they will number 
nearly half of the U.N. con- 

Cuba's crisis of the past 
year involved the mass 
numbers of refugees who 
had been fleeing Cuba with 
hopes of reaching the U.S. 
However, Clinton decided 
to attempt to detain the 
would-be refugees at the 
naval base in Guantanamo 
Bay, Cuba. This also posed 
a problem because facili- 
ties to accommodate the 
Cubans were practically 
filled to capacity. The Cu- 
bans leaving the country 

are mainly young men with 
no fear of being impris- 
oned in the U.S. Their rea- 
sons for leaving are basi- 
cally centered upon the ter- 
rible conditions of Cuba 
both economically and po- 
litically. They wish to es- 
cape from the perils of Cu- 
ba which will not be easily 

As for Bosnia and its sit- 
uation, the tensions be- 
tween the Bosnians and the 
Serbs have not eased in the 
past year. A U.N. embargo 
is currently in effect on 
both sides of the warring 
factions. During the middle 
of November, the Muslim- 
Croatians had a notable 
victory over the Serbs. 
They captured the land 
around Kupres which 
meant defeat for the Serbs 
who had been termed the 
"invincible aggressor."" 
This success was very sig- 
nificant in that it gave hope 
to the Bosnian Army, yet at 
the same time it made the 
leaders of the Serbs even 
more determined to contin- 
ue their fighting. Presently, 
it has been suggested to in- 
crease the bombing cam- 
paign against the Serbs. 
The suggestion has also 
been made for the U.S. to 
send in its own military 
forces in order to stop the 
fighting. In addition, it has 
been estimated that 300 
U.N. troops are being held 
hostage by the Serbs which 
means that action needs to 
be taken so that the Serbs 
will relinquish some of 
their authority. For now the 
civil war continues with 
not much of a chance for a 

speedy end; the Serbs are 
not willing to discuss peace 
and surrender is not a pos- 

An interesting turn of 
events took place this past 
year in the movement of 
peace in the Middle East. 
A peace treaty and hand- 
shake occurred between 
the countries of Israel and 
Jordan. This event termi- 
nated the state of war that 
had been going on for 46 
years between these two 
countries. The main politi- 
cal figures involved in the 
treaty were King Hussain 
of Jordan and Yizhak Ra- 
bin of Israel. As a result of 
this treaty, citizens and 
merchants now have free 
passage between the two 
involved countries. The 
significance of this event 
lies within the facts that Is- 
rael will now have more 
countries with which to 
trade and, hopefully, the 
tensions and violence be- 
tween the countries of the 
Middle East and Israel may 
now have been brought to 
a minimum. 

In summary, the events 
concerning world politics 
for the past year have not 
been at all peaceful with the 
exception of the peace trea- 
ty between Israel and Jor- 
dan. Much more needs to 
be done in order to resolve 
all of the tensions that exist 
in the countries of Rwanda, 
Haiti. Cuba, and Bosnia. 
However, the solutions are 
not simple, nor are they 
presently evident to those 
involved with the attempt to 
mend all of the difficulties 
that are occurring.

The Year In Review 

by Heather Olson - 

Unfortunately, the 
world is always 
plagued by nat- 
ural disasters. 
The past school year has 
not been kind. Floods, 
fire, and earthquakes 
have all ravaged different 
peoples across the globe. 
Billions of dollars in 
damages and unforeseen 
economic circumstances 
are left in the aftermath, 
not to mention the inevi- 
table mess and natural 
damage that needs to be 
cleaned and cultivated. 
Seemingly nothing re- 
mmed to normal. 

Possibly the most dev- 
astating of disasters that 
found its way into the 
hves of millions of peo- 
ple was the Great 
Southern Hyogo Earth- 
quake. Centered in Kobe 
city, Japan, 20 seconds of 
intense shaking on Tues- 
day, January 17, 1995 
caused $60 billion in 
damages. The quake 
measured 7.2 on the Ri- 
chter scale which was 
roughly twice the seismic 
energy of the California 
quake in 1994. Over 
40,000 buildings were 

However, the physical 
destruction was not the 
extent of devastation 
wrought by the quake. It 
shattered the myth that 
the government was well 
equipped to handle the 
disaster. There were sev- 
eral delays in response 
which cost lives. The 
governor took four hours 
to request help from Ja- 
pan's self defense forces, 
which took two days to 
build force. Relief arrived 
at a slow pace, and when 
water and food finally 
found their way into the 
city, there was no way to 
distribute them. There 
were roughly 950,000 
families without water, 
110,000 without electric- 
ity and 850,000 without 
gas. The destruction se- 
verely disrupted the lives 
of ten percent of Japan's 

While almost hundreds 
of thousands of Japanese 
found themselves without 
water, Califomians on the 
other side of the Pacific 
faced just the opposite 
problem. Winter storms, 
considered by some to be 
the worst in 1,000 years, 
caused severe flooding 
throughout California. 
The estimated damage 
reached over $300 mil- 
lion. As the Califomians 
faced one disaster after 
another throughout the 
years, the damage toll has 
risen to an estimated $32 
billion dollars since 1989. 

The flood damage is 
considered just a drop in 
the bucket, compared to 
disasters of the past. 
However, the storm did 
claim eleven lives, but a 
new tracking system in- 
stalled after the last set of 
floods gave 12 hours of 
warning, which helped 
save lives, but could do 
little for the property de- 

Ironically enough, the 
west was also plagued by 
wild fires, including Cal- 
ifornia. This sent the he- 
roic firefighters into bat- 
tle once again. The 
"smoke jumpers" (men 
and women who para- 
chute from planes, jump 
from helicopters and re- 
pel down mountains) 
along with the "hot

the fire's path to interstate

degrees causing a major 
explosion due to the in- 
fusion of oxygen into the

to race for cover. Four- 
teen of the 52 did not re-

Floods also plagued 
Florida, Georgia, and Al- 
abama during the sum- 
mer months. The damage 
that was left behind could 
only be compared to 
General Sherman's 
march. The Flint River 
swelled to the flood stage 
due to freakish rains leav- 
ing almost 40,000 people 
temporarily homeless. 

Crop damage in Georgia 
alone is estimated at near- 
ly $100 million. Despite 
the claims that it was a 
500 years flood, the citi- 
zens were disgruntled by 
the mess left behind, not 
to mention the stench. 

All in all, billions will 
be spent to rebuild after 
each of the disasters. 
Some lives will remain 
forever touched by the 
tragedy. People around 
the world began to recon- 
struct, rebuild, and forget.

People Making News 

by Sara Chiappa — 

In reviewing the United 
States' entertainment 
business, society and 
people at year's end, 
one word comes to mind — 
WOW! There is no escaping 
success, change and shock as 
the country's citizens boldly 
continue their journey into the 
future. Shocking events, suc- 
cessful developments and new 
ideas in the entertainment busi- 
ness did not just gracefully en- 
ter the scene, but more impor- 
tantly, rocked the country. 

On the people scene, several 
old faces were brought further 
into the spodight. To begin, Mi- 
chael Jackson and Lisa Marie 
Presley brought attention to 
themselves when they an- 
nounced their nuptials last fall. 
Many skeptical Americans sur- 
mised that the marriage was an 
effort to cleanse his record con- 
sidering the fact that Jackson 
was still under investigation for 
allegedly molesting a 13-year- 
old boy at the time. Further- 
more, despite their national dis- 
play of public affection at the 
MTV Video Music Awards, the 
same skeptics doubt the success 

It was a match made in heaven; The child of one of the two biggest 
stars in history married the other biggest star in rock history. 

of the marriage. The short life 
of many Hollywood marriages 
was witnessed by the divorce of 
Roseanne and Tom Arnold. But 
not to worry, both are on the 
rebound as Tom is now en- 
gaged to a college sttident and 
a pregnant Roseanne married 
her chauffeur-bodyguard. 

This past year also was the 
bearer of the gift of much suc- 
cess to many actors and actress- 
es. In particular, Tim Allen and 
Jim Carey finished the year 
with success in other media and 
new popularity. Tim Allen is 
one of the biggest multimedia 
stars. This past year, Allen 
started in a popular television 
show Home Improvement and 
movie The Santa Clause and 
yet still found time to write a 
best selling book, Don 't Stand 
Too Close to a Naked Man. Jim 
Carey also found success as he 
made the move from television 
to the movies. The result of this 
was three box office hits. Ace 
Ventura: Pet Detective, The 
Mask and Dumb and Dumber 

The movie industry was 
busy this past year with other 
box office hits. Three such 

movies which are also Oscar 
nominees are The Shawshank 
Redemption, Pulp Fiction and 
Forrest Gump. Tlie Shawsluink 
Redemption, a movie about a 
man unjustly convicted of mur- 
der who plots revenge and es- 
capes. Pulp Fiction, a suspense- 
ful thriller that was powerfully 
constructed through excellent 
writing and special effects to 
portray the idiosyncrasies of 
crime, violence, drugs and to- 
day's society. Forrest Gump, 
the story of a simpleton who 
experiences life head on and be- 
comes wildly successful, also 
came to the big screen. Disney 
did not miss the boat, but rather 
cashed in with the Lion King. 
Set on African plains, it is a 
coming of age movie of a lion 
cub who survives displacement 
and his father's death. 

Success did not merely skim 
over other branches of the en- 
tertairmient industry. In televi- 
sion, new shows were well re- 
ceived. NBC's new smash hit is 
Michael Crichton's ER. In this 
gripping hour of television, life 
and death matters of emergency 
action is realistically depicted. 

Another winner is ABC's My 
So Called Life, the story of an 
introspective 15-year-old girl. 
Despite continued success, the 
networks of ABC, CBS and 
NBC may have to worry over 
competition of new networks. 
Breaking new ground are 
Warner Brothers and Para- 
mount with networks of their 
own, WB and UPN. Both net- 
works hope to soon expand to 
seven nights a week. 

Many musicians created a 
mud slide with amazing results 
in Saugerties, NY, when 
350,000 fans came for the 25th 
anniversary of the first Wood- 
stock. Despite the appearances 
of many big ticket stars, the sec- 
ond Woodstock was less suc- 
cessful, but it did have some of 
the same memorable elements, 
especially mud. At year end 
when everything is tallied, it 
can be said that the musician 
with new acclaim were those 
bands and singers who were al- 
ready established. The Rolling 
Stones proved that they can still 
make an outstanding rocking 
album with the release of Voo- 
doo Lounge. Their tour also 

topped the charts bringing in 
$104 million. Aerosmith was 
also successful with their tour 
and release of Big Ones, a 
greatest hits album infroducing 
new songs. Aerosmith also per- 
formed at Woodstock II. The 
year even witnessed a release of 
an album from a group who has 
been disbanded for a number of 
years. A two-CD set of the Bea- 
tles performing live on British 
radio documents the group's 
ride in a 3 year period. Perform- 
ing for a different crowd, the 
talented Barbara Streisand 
charged her adoring fans up to 
$350 per ticket. Less estab- 
lished and yet successfiil were 
Green Day. Green Day released 
Dookie, one of the best rock al- 
bums of the year. Although the 
band has been around for sev- 
eral years, they reached a higher 
level of fame this year. 

So, at year end it can defi- 
nitely be said that the entertain- 
ment industty was busy this 
year with much success. Its au- 
dience of Americans who seek 
surprise, quality and a fresh 
new look were not disappoint- 

A deaf woman from Alabama became the Tirst person 
with a disability to win the Miss American Pageant. 
Heather Whitestone, 21-years-old, signed "I love 
you" amidst thunderous applause from the audience 
at the Atlantic City Convention Center. 

Woodstock '94 much resembled the original 1969 
rock festival — right down to the fans who wouldn't 
have missed it for the world. Promoters set up distant 
parking lots and shuttle buses for the 200,000 people 
who paid $135 each for tickets — advance sale only. 

If rock and roll is here to stay. 1994 made it clear 
that Aerosmith is, too. The band of bad boys from 
Boston proved that heavy metal need not rust, taking 
three awards at the 11th annual MTV Music Video 
Awards ceremony at Radio City Music Hall in New 
York City.

Rounding Out the Year In Review 

by Jennifer Schmitt 

The past year has 
been filled with 
many memora- 
ble sports mo- 
ments and highlighted by 
many dedicated and out- 
standing sports figures 
such as Michael Schmidt, 
Michael Jordan. Jerry 
Rice, and Shaquille 
O'Neal. Each was recog- 
nized by coaches, team- 
mates, fans and the press 
for his individual out- 
standing athletic per- 
formance, contribution to 
his sport, and incredible 
leadership skills on the 
court and on the field. 

Michael Jack Schmidt 
who has been admired by 
Philadelphia Phillies" 
fans for years for his in- 

credible talent for hitting 
homeruns, racking up 
RBI's, and demonstrating 
supreme fielding ability 
at third base was inducted 
into the Baseball Hall of 
Fame in Cooperstown, 
Pennsylvania early in 
1955. Mike Schmidt re- 
ceived the highest num- 
ber of votes of any indi- 
vidual in history ever in- 
ducted. Retiring in 1989 
after seventeen faithful 
and successful years with 
the Philadelphia Phillies, 
Schmidt completed his 
career with 1,595 RBFs 
and was listed at seventh 
of all time on the Home- 
run List with 548 home- 
runs throughout his ca- 
reer with Philadelphia. 

After retiring from base- 
ball, Mike Schmidt's no- 
torious number "20" was 
retired and a commemo- 
rative banner now hangs 
in Veteran Stadium. As 
the newest inductee into 
the Baseball Hall of 
Fame, Michael Jack 
Schmidt joins past Phillies 
team members who were 
also presented with this 
great honor: Richie Ash- 
bourne, Steve Carlton, 
Robin Roberts, and Grov- 
er Cleveland Alexander. 

Mike Schmidt was not 
the only admired and 
loved sports figure who 
retired this year. Michael 
Jordan made the decision 
to hang up his high tops 
and put down the basket- 

ball and trade them in for 
baseball cleats and a bat. 
Jordan joined the Chica- 
go Bulls in 1985 and re- 
mained with the team un- 
til announcing his retire- 
ment in 1993. There 
would be no more slam 
dunks for Jordan. He de- 
cided to show his athletic 
abilities in a different ball 
game as he joined the 
Birmingham Barons, 
which is an affiliate of the 
Chicago White Sox. Af- 
ter some time of playing 
AA ball, Jordan realized 
how much he missed 
playing ball with the 
Bulls and started practic- 
ing with his teammates 
once again. It seems that 
Michael Jordan could not 

1994 saw a series of athletes leave their mark on the sports world. Steve Young finallv managed 
lo escape from the .shadow of football great ,loe Montana bv carrying the 49ers to a victory 
in Superbowl XXIX. Michael Jordan stunned the world with his announcement to start a 
baseball career in the Chicago White Sox organization. HLs baseball career lasted exactly one 
season with the Birmingham Barons. Growing tired of the baseball strike and its effect on his 
ability to make (he majors eventually resulted in a return to the National Basketball Associa- 
tion. President Carter stepped out of private life again to act as a special U.S. envoy lo Haiti 
as the United Slates desperately tried to keep peace while the government under President 
Aristide was restored. Frank Corder made his mark on the news scene this year by flying a 
hijacked single engine plane and crashing it onto the White House lawn. Neither President 
CUnlon or any member of bis staff were injured in the accident which resulted in the death 
of Corder. 


The Year In Review 


stay away from his first 
love for very long. 

Jerry Rice was recog- 
nized by Sports Illustrat- 
ed as ""the finest receiver 
in the game of football's 
history."" Rice came to 
the 49ers as a nwkie in 
1985 and with him 
brought his incredible 
skills as a wide receiver, 
undaunting charisma, and 
competitive Oame. On 
September 5, 1994, Rice 
scored the 127th touch- 
down of his career. He 
continues to share his tal- 
ent as the best wide re- 
ceiver ever to play foot- 
ball and to shoot for his 
goal of scoring his 200th 
touchdown of his career 
with the 49ers. 

The young, yet ex- 
tremely valuable Shaquil- 
le O'Neal, showed the 
loyal Oriando Magic fans 
what he"s made of and 
what he can accomplish 
on the courts. O'Neal, 
who has been a voice of 
reason and experience on 
and off tfie court for the 
Magic, was the NBA 
player of the month in 
November. His spectac- 
ular moves, such as his 
devastating jump hook, 
turn around jump shots, 
and drop steps, are what 
have made him such a 
notorious offensive play- 
er. But it is not simply his 
offensive talent that has 
been making marks on 
the NBA worid. Shaq is 
as unmovable on defense 
as he is spectacular on of- 
fense. But did Shaq's 
fame go to his head? 
Shaq was listed as the 
second-highest paid ath- 
lete in sports last year by 
Forbes magazine and 
made $16.7 million in 
salary and endorsements. 
Among these endorse- 
ments was Shaq's intro- 
duction into the world of 
rap music as he debuted 
with his first rap album. 
"Shaq Attack" was a 
phrase heard on the 
mouths of many loyal 
Magic fans and it seems 
that it will be for years to 
come as Shaq continues 
to perform on the court.

University Mourns 
Death of Former 
Dean and Chris-

Brother James J. Muldoon, 
F.S.C., Ph.D., who served as 
dean of La Salle's School of 
Arts and Sciences for 1 7 years, 
died on New Years Day at De 
La Salle Hall, the Christian 
Brothers' Nursing Home in 
Lincroft, N.J. He was 61. 

A Mass of Resurrection was 
celebrated at the La Salle Uni- 
versity Chapel on Jan. 5. Bur- 
ial was the following day at the 
Christian Brothers Cemetery, 
in Ammendale. Md. 

At the Mass, Brother Jim, as 
he was known to his countless 
friends, was eulogized by 
Brother Emery Mollenhauer, 
the university's provost emer- 
itus, as an "exceptionally able, 
indefatigable, and dedicated" 


"Not an ostentatiously re- 
ligious person, Jim exempli- 
fied the belief that religion is 
not a matter of obeying rules 
but of influencing people," 
said Brother Emery. "He had 
great faith in the Province of 
God, and that faith was happily 
wedded to an abiding zeal for 
the work of the Lord. Moreo- 
ver, as an administrator he 
gave reality to the concept of 
LaSallian values. He worked 
to give a kind of brotherly or 
family character to his school, 
a character that was sustained 
by an administrative style es- 
pecially sensitive to the dignity 
of the individual person." 

A native of Philadelphia and 
a member of the Christian 
Brothers for 41 years. Brother 
Muldoon joined La Salle's fac- 
ulty in 1969. He was chairman 
of La Salle's Biology Depart- 

ment from 1972 until his ap- 
pointment as dean in 1976. He 
retired in 1993. He received a 
Lindback Award for distin- 
guished teaching in 1974. 

As department chairman 
and an associate professor of 
biology, Brother Muldoon 
headed the university's Com- 
mittee on Applications to the 
Health Professions, guiding 
hundreds of young men and 
women on the path to medical 
and dental schools and other 
careers in the health profes- 

Brother Muldoon, who also 
held an R.N. in nursing from 
Philadelphia's St. Joseph's 
Hospital, was one of the mov-

ment of undergraduate and 
graduate nursing programs at 
La Salle. They have been .so 
successful that a separate 
School of Nursing was estab- 

lished at the university in 

In 1980, Brother Muldoon 
began the annual Holroyd Lec- 
ture and award ceremony hon-

in the health professions. The 
event is held to commemorate 
the memory of the late Dr. Ro- 
land Holroyd, professor emer- 
itus and founder of the Biology 
Department at La Salle where 
he taught for 53 years.

hen a

class of 1995 first 
stepped onto the 
campus of La Salle 
University back in 
September of 1991 — 
he/she could not have 
possibly fathomed the 
ways in which the 
world around them, 
the lifestyles they 
lead, the friends with 
which they 
themselves, and most 
importantly — their 
future vision of 
themselves, would 
change forever over 
the next forty-five 
months. It is safe to 
say that of the 
approximately eight- 
hundred or so 
students receiving 
their diplomas this 
year, none can 
honestly admit to not 
experiencing these 
phenomenon. In 
many ways, this is 

not too unexpected a 
realization — the 
lives that we lead are 
constantly being 
surrounded by the 
proverbial ' 'winds of 
change." Our four 
years at La Salle have 
prepared us for these 
types of occurrences 
and have alerted us to 
the ways that these 
events shape our 
lives. While each of 
us have our own 

recollections, there 
are many changes 
which have occurred 
on local, national, and 
global levels since 
that fateful day of 
September 4, 1991. 
Locally, we have 
seen the entrance of a 
new mayor, a new 
convention center, 
William Penn 
wearing an oversized 
baseball cap, the 
excitement and 
hysteria of the 
Phillies remarkable 

World Series chase, 
and the demolition of 
J.F.K. stadium. 
Moreover, we have 
lived through changes 
to the face of the La 
Salle community as 
well. The opening of 
a new 

Center, the closing of 
the once heavily 
relied upon Olney 
Computer Lab, and a 
new University 
president, provost, 
and Dean of Arts and 
Sciences. We have 
experienced the 
continual growth of 
La Salle 56, flirted 
with the novely of a 
football team and 
have seen the tuition 
rise nearly two 
thousand dollars. 

On a national level, 
we have been 
overwhelmed with 
some of the biggest 
news stories in recent 
memory. A 

presidential campaign 
captivated our 
attention, a 
democratic president 
for the first time in 
over a decade, the 
non-stop drama of 
Tonya Harding and 
Nancy Kerrigan, and 
what more could 
possibly be said about 
O.J. Simpson? 

Internationally we 
have been witness to 
the splitting of the 
nation, renewed 
militancy in Iraq, the 
threat of nuclear build 
up in Korea, famine 
and war in Somalia . 
and the continuing 
crises in Haiti.

What Can We Expect? 

by Jennifer Schmitt 

Freshmen are 
so often told 
that this is 
the best year 
of their college 
journey because 
everything is brand 
new, each experience 
is a first, and each 
moment holds an 
endless number of 
possibilities. As the 
freshmen first stepped 
onto the La Salle 
campus, many feelings 
were present. 
Experiencing fear, 
anxiety and 
excitement, they 
realized that they were 

becoming a vital part 
of a community that 
would be their home 
for the next four years. 
Even if one does not 
experience these 
emotions, there are 
always expectations 
for the year. Each 
incoming freshmen 
has pre-conceptions 
about what life at La 
Salle means, but it is 
not until they are part 
of this community that 
they truly know what 
it is all about. 

It seems that many 
freshmen have the 
expectation of more 

difficult work, but 
more free time to 
spend with friends. 
When they hear the 
word "college", 
certain ideas such as 
fraternities and 
sororities, majors, or 
dorm pop into their 
heads. But as college 
students, they do not 
always anticipate the 
added responsibility. 
They do not think 
about continuing to 
build an education or 
how the courses that 
they will choose will 
have such a great 
impact on their lives 

and future careers. 
Instead, focus is 
placed on forging new 
friendships, starting a 
new life as a college 
student or just having 
as much fun as 
possible. Over the 
course of four years, 
the freshmen class will 
grow together, 
experience life on a 
new level and become 
involved in a 
community which 
offers a great deal of 
possibilities and 

As the freshmen 
arrived on campus the 

first week for 
orientation, a sense of 
revitalization was 
present. With new 
ideas, fresh faces, and 
diverse opinions, the 
campus was awakened 
once again. Phrases 
such as, "I want to 
become involved and 
make a difference," or 
"I am so excited to 
finally be in college" 
could be heard. This 
excitement and 
enthusiasm filled the 
La Salle community 
with a fresh hope for a 
successful four years.

to a Congressional 
grant awarded to La

National Community 
and Trust Act. Only 
sixty-five colleges and 
nationwide are 
recipients of this 
prestigious and 

The Learn and 
Sen'e America Higher 
Education Grant is 
presented to colleges 
and universities which 
exemplify a 
dedication to the 
community's social 
needs and 

demonstrate potential 
to heighten this 
awareness throughout 
the academic 
environment. The 
objective of this grant 
is to further involve 
the entire La Salle 
student and faculty 
bodies in community 
service efforts. 

The federal monies 
received have funded 
the development of La 
Salle's Center for 
Community Learning, 
where Rosemary 
Barbera, former 
Campus Ministry staff 
member, serves as 
Director. In an 
interview with the

a single, 
program. Barbera and 
staff of the Center for 
Community Learning 
are anticipating an 
increased university 
awareness of the co- 
curricular, not 
importance of service 
to society. 

The Center has 
been directing its 
efforts for the benefit 
of three primary 
organizations — the 
local Nursing Center, 
Pastorious Elementary 
School and Inn 
Dwelling. Students of 
all majors have 
devoted time and 
energy to the 
improvement of these 
environments, serving 
as tutors, mentors and 
friends to the people 

Institutions of 
higher education 
which also received 
this grant include 
Brown University, 
Rutgers University 
and Providence 
College. La Salle is 
the only university in 
Philadelphia currently 
recognized by the 
National Community 
and Trust Act. 

Due to the vast size 
and resources of the 
other Congressionally- 
funded institutions. La

these schools proves 
even more impressive.

The Walk?

the course of 
a school year. 
La Salle students will 
participate in many 
extra-curricular activ- 
ities. However, very 
few of those outside 
the sphere of athletics 
ever get the attention 
that they sorely de- 
serve. During the fall 
faculty and 
staff worked 
together in 
taking part 
in the eighth 
annual Phi- 
Aids Walk. 
This fund- 
raiser which is annual- 
ly sponsored by the lo- 
cal organization From 
All Walks Of Life was 
held on Sunday, Oc- 
tober 16th 1994. This 
year's fund-raiser saw 
over eighteen-thou- 
sand participants 
walking in the spirit of 
raising moneys for or- 
ganizations who spe- 
cialize in providing 
education, direct care 
and prevention. 

This year's walk in- 

cluded four participat- 
ing groups from the La 
Salle community. 
They included AIDS 
ALIVE, members of 
the La Salle Nursing 
Center, the Cross Cul- 
tural Organization and 
members from the 
Community Service 
floor of St. Jerome 
Hall. The activities of 

". . . volunteers could give of 
their time by serving as assistants 
or helping with crowd control." 

the day included live 
bands, a full scale pic- 
nic, a reading of a list 
of names for whom 
the walk was dedicat- 
ed and many other fun 
and interesting events. 
Besides the walk it- 
self, volunteers could 
give of their time by 
serving as assistants 
with the picnic or 
helping with crowd 

Of the four groups 
attending, AIDS 

ALIVE is undoubted- 
ly one of the most out- 
spoken for the benefits 
and good that such an 
event can incur. Soph- 
omores Jen Satkowski 
and Diana Cavanaugh 
have been responsible 
for the organization of 
and coordination of 
team during the past 
couple of 
years. Many

dollars had been 
raised for charity. This

When I joined the staff of the Explor- 
er four years ago, I could not have 
been prepared for the changes and 
challenges that would befall the 
staff in the next few years. During this time, we 
struggled to make the book a better literary pro- 
duction — by adding more features, improving 
the quality of the photography and making the 
design more consistent throughout. Unfortunate- 
ly, our first two years saw many struggles as we 
always were looking for that missing ingredient 
that would enable us to reach our goals. How- 
ever the 1 993- 1 994 school year changed all that. 
The staff welcomed a new set of students who 
quickly proved the dedication and ability that a 
top class publication demands. Without this in- 
fusion of wonderfully dedicated students, this 
edition of the Explorer would be nothing more 
than a shell of what it is today. 

As I finish my second and last year at the helm 
of the Explorer. I feel sad that I will no longer 
have a chance to work with the people who have 
become such a large pari of my life for the past 
two years. Failing to mention their contributions 
to your yearbook would be an injustice of high 
highest proportion. Dave joined the staff eager 
and willing to do any task asked of him — this 
dedication made him a clear choice to become 
this year's senior section editor. His focus in 
checking, composing and sorting the six-hun- 
dred senior glossies was a monumental task. An- 

other member of the '95 Explorer who left her 
mark was our managing editor Sue. Sue patient- 
ly worked her way up the staff by tackling the 
senior and student life sections in the '94 and 
'95 Explorers respectively. Sue's cheery dispo- 
sition always managed to lighten up the pressure 
created by the countless hours we all spent in 
our beloved Union 300. However, without the 
services of our associate editor, Laurie, this book 
and the experience that it became for all of us 
would never have been realized. At times Laurie 
may have felt her suggestions fell on deaf ears, 
but her expertise was always respected and ap- 
preciated. (Even though I drove her crazy with 
my unwillingness to admit my mistakes and a 
knack to repeat everything she said.) In conclu- 
sion, I would like to thank the rest of my staff 
— Mary, Andrea, Tim, Sara, Heather, Stephan- 
ie, Christina, and my dearest sister Jennifer — 
all of your enthusiasm and work on the book 
meant so much more to me than any of you can 

Other people whom I would err in not men- 
tioning include our moderator, Rosalie Lombar- 
do. Juggling the responsibilities of her job with 
our unexpected visits and last minute deadlines 
was a test for her sanity I am sure. In addition, 
we always received tremendous assistance from 
Kathy Schrader & Student Life, the athletic de- 
partment, the Collegian staff, and Sam and the 
rest of the folks in the mail room. Special thanks 

also goes out to the photography studios I have 
worked with — Davor Photography (1992- 
1994) and this year with Carl Wolf Studios. Abe 
Orlick and Mike & Joe Druinzi epitomized the 
professional service that the Explorer staff has 
come to expect. 

Before I conclude, I must take a special mo- 
ment to thank Bob & Rita Davine. As our pub- 
lishing representatives from Herff Jones, they 
have served the La Salle community for count- 
less years. In the span of my four year associa- 
tion with the Explorer — they have proved to 
be the most dedicated — tackling the late dead- 
lines, excuses and pleas for extensions with 
nothing but the highest level of professionalism. 
Bob & Rita are very special people with whom 
I am proud to have been associated. 

For all of us involved in the 1995 Explorer, 
we are proud to say that this is our best Campus 
Wide Coverage. All we can hope is that the class 
of 1995 and the La Salle community think so
