La Salle community who has 
left his or her legacy and has set the path ftjr 
ftiture Lasallians. This year the University will 
be bidding farewell to a group of individuals 
who have seen this University undergo many 
changes and many ups and downs, highs and 
lows. They have had an incredible impact and 
will be greatly missed. The editorial staff would 
like to dedicate the 2001 Explorer Xo La Salle 
University's Class of 2001. 

Upon their arrival in the fall of 1997, the 
class of 2001 started their Lasallian journey 
on a campus that looked very different. They 
witnessed firsthand numerous changes that the 
campus community has undergone; the 
Hayman Center reconstruction with the new 
Tom Gola Arena, the changing of North Din- 
ing Hall's name to the Blue and Gold Dining 
Commons, the return of Explorer football to 
McCarthy Stadium, the option of Ogontz 
Manor as a residence for students, the open- 
ing of the Union Market, the bookstore's con- 
version to Barnes and Nobles and the open- 

ing of the Bucks County campus- to name but 
a few. The class of 2001 began their Lasallian 
experience under the presidency of Brother 
Joseph Burke, FSC in 1 997 and continued it in 
1998-1999 under the interim presidency of 
Nicholas Giordano, the first lay person in La

only place that seemed to embrace me for who 
I was and who I would become. Many of the 
people with whom I am graduating with have 
changed my life forever, and they will not be 
forgotten easily." Another senior, Brenna 
McLaughlin, says "How can I walk away 
from a place that has become so much of who 
I am? The friends and memories I've made 
here will always remain with me." This year's 
graduating class has truly left its mark both 
on the faculty and staff and the La Salle com- 
munity as a whole. As Dr. Margaret Watson, 
Chair of the Department of Psychology, re- 
marks, "The Class of 2001 is truly a special 
class and will be missed. I can't even imag- 
ine not seeing many of their faces on a daily

La Salle University celebrates its 
patron's many anniversaries, 
calling forth all associated with 
the Brothers of the Christian 
Schools of the Baltimore District 
for a Conference in Philadelphia 

ong ago, past the 148 
years of La Salle 
University's existence, a 
man envisioned a mission 
for service to the community through educa- 
tion, regardless of one's economic background. 
That man was John Baptist de La Salle. St. 
La Salle was bom to an upper-middle-class 
family with the vocational intention of enter- 
ing the priesthood. Instead, after his ordina- 
tion, St. La Salle's life took a diiferent turn of 
events, creating one of the most influential 
forces in education for many people today. 

After being ordained a priest, De La Salle 
was asked by a fiiend, Adrien Nyel, for help 
with a school for poor girls that he was run- 
ning in Rouen, France. Eventually, Nyel was 
inspired and soon proposed to St. La Salle the 
idea of opening a similar school for poor boys 
in Reims, France; after some thought, St. La 
Salle agreed. He and a few others began their 
mission to the poor of the community while 
not excluding others of high economic status. 
This obviously created some tension and feel- 
ings of competition for surrounding private 
schools . 

The initial years were trying. Still living in 
upper-middle-class luxury, St. La Salle's fol- 
lowers thought it unfair and challenged St. La 
Salle with one simple argument: if the project 

8 '^y/c'/'f/- 

to educate the poor had failed, he would have 
nothing to lose. The teachers, on the other 
hand, had everything to lose. After much medi- 
tation on this particular concern of his teach- 
ers, St. La Salle decided to give up his wealth 
and live in the poverty in which all his follow- 
ers were living. For him, those years were the 
worst. At one point during a famine in France, 
the point where hope for the success of their 
mission was at its lowest, he and his fellow 
teachers made a pact to remain with the mis- 
sion even if it meant living on bread and water 
alone. This proved to be a crucial event be- 

^e^i 0a//cf(>uH(/e(/(Ae &ye(/ter6 of 

inten( f<p ef/fff^fe 

cause it posed as the first vow for Brothers of 
the Christian Schools. Centuries later, who 
would have known, including our patron him- 
self the impact of this one vow and the ac- 
tions of these men? 

In our world today, the Brothers of the Chris- 
tian Schools, with the ideals of St. La Salle 
close at heart, continue the twin hallmarks of 
Lasallian education by giving personal atten- 
tion to their students and by employing practi- 
cal and useful methodologies first adopted by 

its founder The 1 0,000 Christian Brothers in 
the world today, together and by association, 
with their talented colleagues, staff nearly 1 ,000 
teaching establishments of nearly 750,000 stu- 
dents of all ages. 

On September 29, 2000, the Baltimore Dis- 
trict of the Brothers of the Christian Schools 
held a celebration at La Salle University, bring- 
ing together Christian Brothers, faculty and 
staff from Christian Brother institutions, as well 
as those associated with the mission of St. La 
Salle. During this celebration, workshops were 
held for those who attended, which spanned 
topics from "Poverty in the Midst of Wealth" 
to "Lasallian Mission at Higher Education." 

Along with this gathering, 2000-2001 has 
brought many reasons for celebration in the 
name of John Baptist de La Salle. It was an 
opportunity to observe the 350th birthday of 
St. John Baptist de La Salle (1651-2001), the 
100th anniversary of his canonization (1900- 
2000), and the 50th anniversary of his being 
proclaimed as the pafron saint of all teachers 
( 1 950-2000). Truly, with the influence that St. 
La Salle has had on the students and staff here' 
at La Salle and around the world, he will live 
in our hearts forever

Alumni Explorers come bock

Alma Mater 

omecoming Weekend 
2000 offered students, 
alumni and their families 
diverse opportunities to 
have fun. The celebration began on a 
Thursday evening with the Homecoming 
Dance sponsored by the Intra-Fratemity and 
Sorority Council. This event was followed on 
Friday afternoon by a "Happening Hour" at 
Backstage sponsored by the Student 
Government Association where students met 
other students, faculty and administrators 
before attending the Homecoming Barbecue 
in the Blue and Gold Courtyard. There, 
students stopped by to enjoy the picnic-style 
food and sit with their friends on the grassy 
hills of the North Donns Complex. 

Early next morning, some students, faculty, 
and alumni took part in the Alumni Fun Run 
around the campus. After the run, children 
were treated to games, food, and face painting 
on the Union patio. Then, complete with 
painted faces, blankets, and umbrellas, La Salle 
fans filled the stands to watch the La Salle 
Explorers battle the Siena Saints. In place for 
the game at McCarthy Stadium was a new 
flag and flag pole at the left of the scoreboard, 
and all rose and turned to salute the flag when 
the Pep Band played the National Anthem at 
the start of the game. 

Despite the cool, damp weather, the Saints 
came charging out in the first quarter and took 
a 9-0 lead. However, by half time, the 
Explorers came back and led 14-9 over Siena. 

During the half-time ceremonies. La Salle 
crowned its Homecoming King-senior Kevin 
Badalato-and its Homecoming Queen- senior 
Marianne Bellesorte. 

During the second half of the game, the 
Explorers held on to their lead and finished 
victorious with a score of 28-15 and an overall 
record of 3-1 at that point in the season. 
Despite the dreary weather and the absence 
of tailgating due to La Salle's new zero- 
tolerance alcohol policy, all who came to 
Homecoming 2000 enjoyed it and are looking 
forward to next year's celebration.

Lasallians connect with the 
surrounding connmunity 
through sen/ice and 

n the morning of October 
7, 2000, hundreds of stu- 
dent volunteers gathered 
on the Main Quad for La Salle's Branch Out 
Day. Once again, this annual event was an 
overwhelming success this year due to the ef- 
forts of students and community service coor- 
dinators alike determined to make positive 
strides in the lives of others. 

But the planning for this event started well 
before the actual day. Over the summer with 
the aid of Philadelphia Cares, a community

service organization. Branch Out coordinators 
Dave Hamdan, Nicole Graham and Cathy 
Kozen, were able to locate sites where stu- 
dents could volunteer their services to the less 
fortunate in the community. Coordinators also 
contacted past years' sites to volunteer stu- 
dent services as well, and on the day itself. 
students then helped at these sites. Some 
cleaned littered neighborhoods; others planted 
trees, while others entertained neighborhood 
children. While most students signed up as a 
part of on-campus organization or group, some 
came alone and joined a group of their choice. 
Some of the sites visited by La Salle stu- 

dents include Awbury Arboretum, Philadelphia 
Book Bank and Family House Now. 

At Awbury Arboretum a group of volunteers 
from Branch Out helped plant dozens of trees 
in a nearby neighborhood in an effort to spruce 
up the block. Another group helped at the 
Philadelphia Book Bank, which collects and 
buys books and periodicals to be then sorted 
by volunteers and donated to libraries. One 
RA who found this a worthwhile program for 
herself and her floor noted that it ended up 
being a wonderfuly bonding event. Several stu- 
dents volunteered to go to Family House, now, 
a housing facility for struggling families to find 
rest and support while they are homeless. Here 
they helped to clean the house and its sur- 
rounding grounds. 

Back on the Main Quad the Lasallian spirit 
was close to home with Fall Carnival being 
held on campus for neighborhood children. 
Children and volunteers participated in face 
painting and games while enjoying food and 

Once all of the volunteering was done, all of 
the participating students returned to the quad 
to enjoy a complimentary lunch and exchange 
thoughts and ideas about their experiences that 
day. Rita Bonner, Branch Out Committee 
member, remarks, "The day was well attended 
by volunteers and well-received by the com- 
munity. Branch Out 2000 was a great success!"

Plenty of action awaits 
La Salle's students outside 
the campus in the 
City of Brotherly Love 

ne of the advantages of 
going to school in a big city 
is that there is a little more 
to do around here than watch the grass grow. 
Whether a student is under 21 or legally old 
enough to enjoy all that the city has to offer, 
Philadelphia offers an abundance of possibili- 
ties for a good time. 

Although most of the malls are closed for 
nighttime shopping. South Street is always 
crowded on weekends with a variety of things 
to choose from. There are stores where stu- 
dents can find just about anything that they 
are looking for, from a new outfit to a new 

If they want a little more culture, there are 
plenty of museums to visit. There is, of course, 
the Philadelphia Museum of Art, which actu- 
ally is known in some crowds for its rich col- 
lection of art, not just as the place where 
Rocky finished his run. The Rodin Museum, 
right off the Ben Franklin Parkway, offers a 
fine collection of sculptures, including Rodin's 
most famous piece. The Thinker. On the first 
Friday of eveiy month, all of the smaller gal- 
leries downtown are free, and the streets are 
always crowded with people milling around 
between them, going in and out of the many 
galleries and restaurants. 

There are coffee houses all over the city, 
the most famous being Xando's, which has a 

couple of locations. It offers a variety of 
coffees and food, including its famous s 'mores 
and alcoholic beverages. 

Philadelphia also has an abundance of bars 
and clubs, from the local bars on comers to 
large dance halls. If students feel like running 
into other students from La Salle, they try 
Arena's in East Falls any night of the week. 
Chemistry in Manyunk is guaranteed to be 
packed either on Thursday nights or on Fri- 
days during Happy Hour. Finnegan's Wake 
on Spring Garden has three levels, each one 
different enough to appeal to any tastes. While 
on South Street shopping, students can stop at 
any number of places, including Fat Tuesday's 
where they can people watch with some food 
or drink over its balcony. For a more subdued 
atmosphere, they can try Abilene 's right next 
door. Almost every weekend, there is a good 
band playing. 

For those who like to dance, they can basi- 
cally do all types of dancing all over the city. 
For a more modern club-like atmosphere, 
Egypt on Delaware Avenue or Chemistry has 
the latest music. If students cannot decide 
which era they feel like being in, they can go 
to Polly Esters in China Town. Each floor is a 
different decade, with '70's, '80's and '90's 
music to choose from. If they have a litfle 
money in their pocket and incredible outfits in 
their closets, the Eighth Floor on Delaware 

&/u/a(/e//Jiia offef<> a udde v^Jfietu of

eiifet'/atn menf 

Avenue is where they can go. If they are un- 
sure what to do, students can just go there 
and will be sure to find something that will 
help them pass the night. 

When the weather is warm, Penn's Land- 
ing is a good place to visit. There are usually a 
variety of events, from outdoor concerts to 
ethnic festivals. Even if there is nothing spe- 
cific going on, it is just a beautiful place to 
spend a warm evening. 

Sports fans can pick any major or minor 
league sport that they want. All they need to 
do is head down to South Philadelphia to take 
in a Phillies, Eagles, Flyers, or Sixers game, 
usually for a pretty reasonable price if they 
are not picky about seat location. 

Failing all else, they can go to Pat's or 
Geno's, homes of the famous Philadelphia 
Cheese steak. If students go there late enough 
at night, they will be sure to find people who 
have been in all of the places mentioned above 
earlier in the evening. Anything they want to 
do, Philly has it.

Campus theater organization 
once again showcases the 
talent of La Salle University in 
its fall nnusical by Sondheinn 

here's my prize? 
This is not a ques- 
tion that would 
commonly be asked from a group of murder- 
ers but during the Masque production oi As- 
sassins the message was heard loud and 
clear. Directed by Tom Reing and spending 
1991 on Broadway, Assassins is a controver- 
sial comedy regarding the most serious of sub- 
jects- the successfiil and unsuccessfiil attempts 
on the lives of several presidents of these 
United States. With a colorful cast and details 
as precise as exact replicas of guns used in 
the assassinations in question. Assassins is truly 
one of a kind. 

In Scene One, we are introduced to the as- 
sassins, a colorful and almost lovable cast of 
characters. John Wilkes Booth, played by Ed 
Persichetti, is the instigator of the bunch who 
sets his assassination of president Abraham 
Lincoln as an example for future assassins. 
Charles Guiteau, played by Dave Hamdan, 
shot President James Garfield in a plea to be 
named Ambassador to France. Leon 
Czolgosz, played by Chris O'Donnell, is re- 
sponsible for shooting William McKinley at the 
Pan American Exposition, blaming a "fiery 
belly" for his behavior Giussepe Zangara, a 
frustrated immigrant played by Lawrence 

Knapp, attempted to assassinate president- 
elect Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 15, 
1932. Samuel Byck, a delusional and comical 
character played by Mike Sabatino, had ev- 
ery intention of killing Richard Nixon by hi- 
jacking a commercial jetliner and flying it into 
the White House. Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme 
played by Melissa DiFeo and Sarah Jane 
Moore, played by Britney Barber both made 
separate attempts on President Ford to no 
avail. John Hinkley, played by Thomas Whittle, 
attempted to assassinate President Reagan in 
1981 in an attempt to win the affections of 
actress Jodi Foster Finally, we meet the vil- 
lain of villains, the killer of killers, Lee Harvey 
Oswald who assassinated JFK played by Joe 

Assassins tells the story of each of the mur- 
derers and would be murderers each trying to 
sell the audience on the reasons for their act 
of violence. Whether it be out of a lack of 
respect, a fight for a cause, or political con- 
viction, or out of pure insanity each character 
feels as if his or her actions can be justified. 
Each character played their part convincingly 
and with heart and emotion. As onlookers be- 
came familiar with the characters, it was very 
easy to find humor and wit in their portrayals, 
and many audience members found them- 

selves having to take a step back to realize 
that these men and women were playing the 
parts of real life American villains. "It was so 
easy to get sucked into the comic value of the 
characters and I had to keep reminding my- 
self that these people were killers," says Molly 
Murphy. This was the sentiment felt by many 

^J//u' f/Hfrf/e/^efo and w^'iiM 6e-mur<fefei-) 
atfemM to f/aim. f/tf/'r T'f'f.'ye ' in t/>e/(i// 

in the audience and caused a stir of contro- 
versy due to sequences which many critics 
deemed as inappropriate. "At times, some of 
the lines were inappropriate for this day and 
age and many of the cast members felt very 
uncomfortable reciting them. But the charac- 
ters had to be taken in context with the his- 
torical period in which they were staged," re- 
marked Ed Persichetti who played Booth. 

Yet, despite covAxovzxvj, Assassins was well 
received and was an immense success due to 
the efforts of a veteran cast and endless hours 
of dedication and determination by all involved 
with the production.

ften seen only thorough their so- 
I cial activities, many fail to see the 

accomplishments of Greeks on 
campus. Although they are mostly known on 
campus for their weekend parties, RUSH 
week, or the annual Greek Week celebration, 
Greeks at La Salle have been responsible for 
many fundraisers, community service, and 
social activities on campus. Most fraternities 
and sororities have been here on campus mak- 
ing their presence known for many years, not 
only as active brothers and sisters in their own 
chapters but also as members of campus-wide 

Most of the sororities and fraternities have 
come into existence at different times at La 
Salle. Alpha Sigma Tau, the newest sorority, 
has been at La Salle for 8 years, while Gamma 
Sigma Sigma, the oldest sorority on campus, 
celebrated 27 years of service. Gamma Phi 
Beta has enjoyed 25 years at La Salle, while 
Alpha Theta Alpha has existed for 22 years. 
Delta Phi Epsilon, a younger sorority, has been 
on campus 1 5 years. 

Fraternities too vary in their history at La 
Salle. Delta Sigma Phi, La Salle's newest fra- 
ternity, recently celebrated the anniversary of 
its chartering, while Phi Kappa Theta, one of 
the oldest, celebrated 30 years of brotherhood. 
Alpha Chi Rho fraternity has existed for 25 
years, FIJI for 15 and Sigma Phi Epsilon for 
10 years. 
Sigma Phi Lambda, the oldest fraternity has 

Greeks contribute over one 
hundred years combined to 
University; La Salle's oldest 
fraternity turns sixty-five, helping 
to continue Lasallian spirit 

been serving La Salle for 65 years. Spirit, fi- 
delity, and leadership are the three driving 
forces behind the values of every brother of 
Sigma Phi Lambda Fraternity. Founded on 
November 14, 1935 as a spirit club at La Salle, 
it strives to foster true fellowship among its 
brothers while at the same time continuing the 
mission of its five founding fathers and re- 
sponding to the growing needs of the univer- 
sity. This fi"atemity includes many illustrious 
brothers: for example. Brother Leonard for 
whom the Leonard Quadrangle is named; 
Father John Guischard, its founding president; 
Dan Rodden, to whom the theater is dedicated; 
Dr. Joseph Moran, Dr. Joseph Flaubacher and 
Dr. Roland Holyrod, distinguished fonner pro- 
fessors; Tom Curley, president of USA To- 
day; and current faculty members Brother 
Gerry Molyneaux, Dr. Geffrey Kelly and Dr. 
Vince Kling. 

All Greek organizations are dedicated to 

their philanthropies and contribute much to 
campus life. Included in Lambda's service 
projects are Crossing the Finish Line Founda- 
tion and the Susan Kelly Benefit, both to help 
cancer patients. FIJI annually sponsors its Bid 
for Bodies, and Delta Sigma Phi has its Toys 
for Tots. While other Greeks have different 
philanthropic projects, the sisters of Gamma 
Sigma Sigma, a service sorority, spend many 
hours each month in philanthropic work. 

Greek members are part of sport teams and

'(/enee ^it 


a Salle University has al- 
ways had a reputation for 
serving a wide variety of 
students from various ethnicities and back- 
grounds. In the past, the student population 
had been largely recruited from the Philadel- 
phia area leading to a large commuter student 
presence on the campus. But with more em- 
phasis now placed on recruiting efforts and a 
higher enrollment from students from outside 
the area, La Salle has since changed its com- 
muter school image. 

In the past four years, Admissions and Resi- 
dent Life have seen a significant surge in the 
number of housing applications that they re- 
ceive per semester. This past year's enrollment 
overall was at an all-time high with the major- 
ity of students living on campus. This impact 
could also be the result of several programs 
that have been implemented and revamped in 
order to highlight the strong potential for stu- 
dent life on campus. 

Students generally begin their resident years 
in the North Halls Residence Complex located 
in the northern part of campus or at St. 
Neumann Hall located in South campus. The 
North Halls complex was the first residence 

For many students. La Salle 
residence halls, apartments, and 
townhouses are home away 
from home 

hall used when on-campus living arrangements 
were first made available to students. This com- 
plex is the largest on campus and is divided 
into several area governments, which run vari- 
ous programs throughout the year. St. 
Neumann Hall is the newest addition to the 
residential family and thus the most modem 
of the residence halls. 

Students generally live in a residence hall 
during their freshman and sophomore years, 

■^jier^a6(/io eiifo//t/ie/i/ ea/lj/or /mo-e 

and then for their remaining years at La Salle 
move into either the apartments or the St. 
Miguel Townhouses as upperclassmen. There 
are three separate apartment complexes, St. 
Teresa Court, La Salle Apartments and the 
Manor Apartments, in which students can en- 
ter the housing lottery in order to attain a space. 
Apartments are complete with a kitchen, a liv- 
ing room, and one to two bedrooms. 

The St. Miguel Townhouses are considered 
by many students to be at the top of the hous- 
ing echelon. Each house is three stories with 

three single bedrooms and one double room. 
two bathrooms, a kitchen, a dining area, cen- 
tral heating and cooling, and a living room. At 
the housing lottery, seniors and some juniors 
compete for their space in the townhouse of 
their choice. "The townhouses are without a 
doubt the best choice for housing. They just 
seem more homey than any of the other facili- 
ties, and its such a switch from the dorms," 
says Megan Nulty '01 . 

As the interest in on-campus housing grows 
and dorms, apartments and townhouses be- 
come increasingly crowded, many students 
think it's time that the University look into more 
housing options for fiiture incoming classes. 
"It seems as if each incoming class is inter- 
ested in living on campus a little more than the 
previous class. This is something that will have 
to be planned for," states Ed Persichetti '02. 

As interest in the University heightens, so 
does the demand for housing. More and more 
students are beginning to benefit from moving 
onto campus and enjoying a city they have 
never had the opportunity to experience or re- 
discovering an old and familiar Philadelphia.

any campus organiza- 
tions emphasize the 
importance of giving 
back to our community 
through service to its members. The center of 
such a credo is located in the lower level of 
College Hall. 

Under the leadership of Director Br. Charles 
Echelmeier, FSC and Associate Director Ms. 
Louise Giugliano, University Ministry and Ser- 
vice aids in the spreading of Lasallian virtue 
and merit throughout the campus at large. Af- 
ter a period of restructuring. University Min- 
istry and Service continues to serve our com- 
munity. In addition, liturgical activities and the 
sacraments are made readily accessible to all 
faculty and students. Mass is celebrated in the 
De La Salle Chapel at 6:30 pm on Sundays 
and at 12:30 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, 
Thursdays, and Fridays and at 4:30 pm on 

Selflessness of the students, in the 
spirit of St. La Salle, has called for 
a wide variety of service options 
to aid the connnnunity 
surrounding the university 

Tuesdays. The Sacrament of Reconciliation 
is available every Tuesday afternoon from 3:30 
until 4:00 and at other times by appointment. 
University Ministry and Service also works 
in conjunction with sei^vice groups on campus 
to provide a wealth of opportunities for stu- 
dents to help the community. One such group 
is P.O. C. U.S. (Forum on Community and Uni- 
versity Service) a student organization foster- 
ing campus-wide programming and service ac- 
tivities for students, faculty and staff 

Other community service programs target 
various populations including those suffering 
from HIV/AIDS, the homeless and hungry, 
and neighborhood children. This student in- 
volvement helps to make possible community 
service activities ranging from tutoring and 
mentoring to soup kitchens to hospital work. 
Groups in these categories include Homeless 
Outreach, San Miguel Tutoring, Best Buddies 

and L.O.C.K. (La Salle Organization Caring 
for Kids). University Ministry and Services 
also co-sponsors activities emphasizing the pur- 
suit of social justice through groups such as 
AIDS A.L.I.V.E., Amnesty International, and 
L.G.B.T.S.A., The Alliance. 

In addition to these activities, programs in- 
clude annual student-run service trips. One 

such trip is Week of Hope, a service project 


/^/'o/'U/e /Na/K/ r/i('ej''ie o/j/jor/K/i/fie'!) 

conducted over spring break where a small 
group of students volunteer to help serve and 
provide meals to the less fortunate. This year 
students traveled to the Boston area as they 
did in the past to give service. Brenna 
McLaughlin '01 coordinator of Week of Hope, 
says, "Students' seem to really enjoy the ex- 
perience while realizing the difference they 
can make in the world around them." 

University Ministry and Services not only 
sets the example for the LaSallian way of life 
but also provides ample opportunity for stu- 
dents, faculty and staff to embrace the mes- 
sage of de La Salle and live it to the fullest.

ade effective on June 1, 
2000 and in a hopeful ef- 
fort to improve student 
services at La Salle University, many of the 
major student-centered administrative depart- 
ments combined and restructured themselves 
to form the new Division of Student Affairs. 
Despite any initial problems, namely confti- 
sion with the new titles given to each depart- 
ment and the services being rendered by each, 
the Division of Student Affairs has indeed 
helped La Salle's former student services 
work very much like a well-oiled machine. 

Within the Division, six units were formed: 
Administrative Services, Career Services, 
Community Development, Health Programs, 
University Life and University Ministry and 
Service. Overseeing these units, the Dean of 
Students aims to lead these six components 
of the Division of Student Affairs in building, 
sustaining and enhancing a community focused 
on student learning. 

Administrative Services manage all divi- 
sional facilities and resources, including stu- 
dent residences, the La Salle Union and all

Restructuring of Resident and 
Student Life better serves 
La Salle as a whole, proving 
that change is good 

divisional offices and locations. 

Career Services assist the students and 
alumni with all appropriate aspects of career 
planning and development, facilitate experien- 
tial education opportunities and build and sus- 
tain strong relationships with potential employ- 

Community Development aims to promote 
high standards for conduct in our community, 
supervise residential life, identify and mentor 
student leaders, encourage and support in- 
volvement in student organizations, train and 
develop the staff of La Salle University and 
provide programs of welcome and transition 
for new students. 

Health Programs provide programs and ser- 
vices, including primary health care, personal 
counseling, crisis intervention and alcohol and 
other drug programs for our students. 

University Life leads and facilitates cultural, 
recreational, and social celebrations, ceremo- 
nies and events for the University Commu- 
nity. It aims to lead multicultural education ef- 
forts, advise our international students and our 
faculty and staff who work to bring interna- 
tional elements to student learning and main- 
tain the university calendar. 

University Ministry and Service provide ex- 
periences that expand horizons, invite explo- 
ration, engender growth and challenge as- 
sumptions - inspiring members of our com- 
munity to investigate, incarnate and celebrate 

both La Salle's religious heritage and informed 
citizenship in the 2 1 st century world. Involve- 
ment is encouraged in experiences designed 
to enhance spiritual life and to ftilfill the gos- 
pel call to justice, promote and coordinate com- 
munity service and service learning, invite ac- 
tive participation in celebrations of the Eucha- 
rist and other sacraments, supports sharing in 
all appropriate liturgical ministries and provide 
educational services to our neighboring com- 

Introducing these units first over the sum- 
mer during the Day ONE orientation program, 
Dean Joseph Cicala, Associate Dean Alan 
Wendell, Assistant Dean Anna Allen and a 
cast of many others were on hand to explain 
to families and incoming students the benefits 
of the new organization of this part of the Uni- 
versity. The administration essentially called 
for restructuring in a desire to best serv'e the 
students of La Salle by forming direct lines of 
contact for them to address any problems, 
concerns or suggestions that they had. 

With a full year in operation, the Division of 
Student Affairs seems only to be headed up- 
hill. This reformation has proved only to be 
positive. In keeping the mission and goals of 
the University in mind, the Division of Student 
Affairs has maintained their primary reason 
for serving the University - the students.

Fifty years of teaching for the 
Order of the Brothers of the 
Christian Schools proves to the 
University that the beliefs of 
De La Salle are alive and strong 

n October 7, 2000, Brother 
Charles Edward Gresh 
celebrated his Golden 
Jubilee at Old St. Joseph's 
Church in Philadelphia. This celebration 
honored not only Brother Charles's life as a 
Christian Brother for 50 years, but also his 
work as an educator and administrator as well 
as the impact he has had on so many people 
and institutions. 

Bom and raised in Philadelphia, Brother 
Charles attended La Salle College, where he 
received his B. A. in 1 954 and his M. A. in 1955. 
Shortly afterwards, he began his teaching 
career, teaching first at Central Catholic High 
School in Pittsburgh, followed by West Catholic 
High School in Philadelphia, and La Salle 
Academy in New York. 

Then in 1966, Brother Charles returned to 
La Salle as an Assistant Professor of English. 
Teaching only one year, he was called to serve 
as the Dean of Men in 1967, Dean of Students 
in 1969, and then Acting Vice President of 
Student Affairs in 1 97 1 . Then in 1 972, Brother 
Charles was appointed the President of St. 
John's College High School in Washington, 
D.C., where he remained for nine years before 
returning to La Salle in 1981. From 1981 to 
the present, he has served the university in 
development, being initially the Director of the 
Annual Fund, then Director of Development 
from 1990 to 1999 and, most recently, the 
Director of Major Gifts. 

Throughout this illustrious career. Brother 
Charles pursued additional graduate studies at 
numerous institutions including Cornell. 

Cambridge, and Oxford Universities and also 
earned an additional masters degree at the 
University of Pittsburgh. In addition to his 
scholarly interests. Brother Charles is an 
accomplished organist and pianist — and an 
avid swimmer, almost daily enjoying 
recreational swimming in Hayman Hall's Kirk 

When asked about his Golden Jubilee, 
Brother Charles said, "One of the joys in 
celebrating this milestone is that I have been 
privileged to spend 28 years at La Salle in one 
capacity or another. Although a multitude of 
changes has occurred, the closeness of the 
faculty, staff and students remains the same."

University receives hefty grant 
fronn Independence Blue Cross 
to renovate the fornner-Binns 
Fitness Center on South 

^^ 1 

7^^ ^11 111 newly renovated 
Independence Blue Cross 
Fitness Center opened last 
fall with a dedication 
ceremony on November 20, 2000. At this 
ceremony those in attendance included La 
Salle's president, Brother Michael McGinniss, 
F.S.C; Dr. Thomas Brennan, Director of 
Athletics and Recreation; Dr. Joseph Cicala, 
Dean of Students; Megan Barnett, SGA 
president; and many prominent La Salle faculty 
and alumni. With Vice-President of University 
Advancement Brian Elderton acting as the 
Master of Ceremonies, Brother McGinnis 
welcomed those in attendance and, along with 
Dr. Brennan and Megan Barnett, thanked 
Independence Blue Cross for the $300,000 
grant to La Salle to renovate the former James 
J. Binns Fitness Center. 

This Independence Blue Cross grant has 
been used to make many substantial changes. 
For example, a window wall was added to the 
front of the building, making the exterior more 
welcoming to students. While the old fitness 
center sometimes became hot or stuffy, a new 
heating and air-conditioning system now keeps 
the Independence Blue Cross Fitness Center 
just the right temperature. Male and female 
showers have also been installed. In addition, 
new rubber matting for the floor has been put 
in place. 

The improvements also extended to the type 
of equipment available in the fitness center 
With money from the Student Activity fees, 
$80,000 worth of new equipment was bought. 
Most of the new purchases were 
cardiovascular machines that now provide an 
opportunity for students to have a total body 

workout. While the new equipment is an added 
bonus, some of the older equipment is still being 
used. The equipment now includes free 
weights, bikes, steppers, pin-select weight 
lifting machines and more. The new 
Independence Blue Cross Fitness Center was 
designed with all students in mind and provides 
a great place to exercise. 

According to Ed Lawless, the Center's 
director, "This Center with all the new 
equipment, air-conditioning and glass wall is 
as well equipped and attractive as any college 
facility in the country." Lawless adds that "with 
the new cardiovascular equipment and the 
new body-shaping strength training machines, 
hundreds of La Salle students, faculty and staff 
are able to attain a level of fitness that was 
not possible in the past."

Brother Gerry Fitzgerald's F.Y.E. Activities 

Accounting majors must learn 
how to deal with the stmggles and 
challenges they will face in the 
real world. Freshmen lucky 
enough to be in Brother Gerry 
Fitzgerald's accounting class will 
certainly have an advantage. For 
not only do they begin their edu- 
cation in accounting under the ex- 
perience and sincerity of Brother 
Gerry, but each week for an ex- 
tra hour they spend time in his 
Freshmen Year Experience class 
(or F.Y.E as it is often called) 
This class gives the students an 
excellent opportunity to get to 
know their peers and faculty in 
a more personal way. They be- 
come familiar with a group of 
people, with whom they will 
work during various activities 
throughout the semester. This is 
especially important for students 

seeking a career in Accounting, 
for they will have to deal with a 
diverse population in the work 
force. Another benefit account- 
ing students gain from Brother 
Gerry's F.Y.E. is that they par- 
ticipate in activities that help to 

foster communication skills. For 
example, each week, following 
F.Y.E., Brother Gerry's students 
write a page or two describing 
the class and how it was useful 
to them. 
Some of the activities students 

participate in include a discussion 
session on stress management 
and a presentation on career 
planning. Learning how to man- 
age stress is vital, for not only 
accounting majors, but all stu- 
dents in business programs alike. 
Careful career planning can also 
be the difference between suc- 
cess and failure in the business 
world, so this presentation is very 

A field trip to a business firm 
in the Philadelphia area is also a 
part of Brother Gerry's curricu- 
lum. This experience enables the 
students to view an example of the 
environment they will be working 
in. They can see what occurs 
throughout a typical accountant's 
day. Perhaps taking this trip will also 
assist a student with an undecided 
major in choosing accounting or 

another major in the business field. 

As well as meeting with Brother 
Gerry for an extra hour each week 
for the designated F.Y.E. activity, 
students are also required to par- 
ticipate in La Salle's scheduled ac- 
tivities. They must attend "Branch 
Out" and take part in a particular 
community service task that day. 
They also are encouraged to at- 
tend the Summer Intern/Co-op job 
fair. Attending the job fair will as- 
sist them in finding a beneficial in- 
ternship where they can work dur- 
ing the summer. 

Next Year, Freshmen majoring 
in accounting and any other busi 
ness discipline will have linked 
courses rather than F.Y.E. This 
year, however, many of them have 
been fortunate to gain the valu 
able experience that Brother 
Gerry's class provides.

A new student research lab and tissue culture room open In Holroyd 

Until recently, students major- 
ing in biology have had a some- 
what difficult time pursuing on- 
campus research. This was due 
to a lack of space in the Holroyd 
building. Students who did wish 
to research had problems; they 
had to set-up and take down their 
experiments several times and 
work in several labs, depending 
on which lab was open and avail- 
able for them. 

Due to the great necessity for 
such a space on campus. La 
Salle's Biology Department 
sought, and found, a solution. 
Thanks to a grant from NSF and 
matching funds from alumni and 
industry, a new space has been 
made for students to work. The 

new student research lab presents 
the opportunity and the location 
that had been lacking in the past 
for the biology department. The 

addition, the lab makes the al- 
ready distinguished biology de- 
partment appear that more attrac- 
tive to incoming students.

lab allows students to set up and 
run experiments on a continuous 
basis, ridding them of the annoy- 
ing and frustrating need to shuffle 
and disassemble their work. It 
also provides students with a great 
new experience that had not pre- 
viously been available on campus; 
it allows students to work more 
independently and efficiently. In 

Another new feature on the bi- 
ology floor of Holroyd this year 
is the tissue culture room. This 
is yet another space which was 
made for students interested in 
pursuing research, as well as for 
classes to use for experimenta- 
tion. Classes like developmental 
biology and cell biology require 
students to do complicated experi- 

ments that involve isolating and 
growing different types of cells. 
This can be a long and difficult 
process, and requires very spe- 
cific temperatures and such. 
Now, thanks to the tissue culture 
room, it is possible for long or 
short-term experiments involved 
in cell growth and study to take 

There have been a lot of excit- 
ing advances in the biology de- 
partment. Hopefully, students 
will take full advantage of the re- 
sources that are now available to 
them. Both the faculty and stu- 
dents look forward to coming 
years to see how this department 
will continue to change and to 
grow. ^,„^ Hartke '03

The Chemistry and Biochemisty Department is firmly committed to its students 

The Chemistry and Biochem- 
istry Department is one of the 
smaller ones on campus, and for 
this reason majors are able to 
develop a strong relationship 
with their professors. Often there 
is as much learning going on out- 
side the classroom as there is in- 
side of it. 

This department offers a strong 
science program, which prepares 
students for graduate school or a 
wide range of careers. They in- 
clude research and opportunities 
in the pharmaceutical industry. 
Areas of study range from mak- 
ing life-saving drugs to finding 
cleaner, more efficient ways to 
use our fossil fuels. 

During their course of study, 
majors have access to all types of 
equipment used in research and 
industry. These include a UV-Vis 
spectrometer, a ¥T\R spectrom- 
eter, and a nuclear magnetic reso- 
nance spectrometer, all of which 
are used to classify the various 
creations that the students come 
up with in lab. This equipment 
allows products of the experi- 
ments to be monitored to see if 
the experimentation is going in 
the right direction. 

All majors are part of the 
Chymian Society, the 
department's chemistry club. 
President, Carlos Castaneda 
along with the other officers, 

Mary Katherine Tarrant. Shawn 
Cumiskey, and Joe Orzechowski 
have organized a tutoring pro- 

X^/iamian (pfodefu 

fc >-0//ie /(■ CCf/Zl/M/o 

gram to aid other students with 
their chemistry courses. All of the 
students involved have actively 
tried to help as many students as 
they can. Along with the tutor- 
ing programs, the Chymian So- 
ciety actively recruits speakers to 
come to campus and talk about 

their research and experience in 

The need for trained chemists is 
growing with the race to find 
cures for such diseases as cancer 
and AIDS. Along with attempt- 
ing to find cures for diseases, 
chemists are also involved in law 
enforcement, aiding in areas of 
forensics and working for the 
EPA in an attempt to help clean 
up the environment. The Chem- 
istry and Biochemistry Depart- 
ment remains firmly committed 
to educating all future chemists.

Communication class works witii Habitat for 

When senior Theresa 
Zaccagnino entered Dr. Lynne 
Texter's PubUc Relations seminar 
for the first time, she began the 
application of communication 
theories to real life. Operating in 
groups of three, students in Dr. 
Texter's class worked with Habi- 
tat for Humanity to develop a plan 
to solve a communications prob- 
lem for the non-profit group. 
Therese Zaccagnino and her group 
had to solve the problem of bring- 
ing in more skilled workers 
to build the houses for Habi- 
tat for Humanity. As a part 
of the semester-long assign- 
ment, her group had to sub- 
mit a plan book and pitch 
their proposal for solving the 
problem. At the end of the 
term, the group presented 
their experiences to their 
peers and people from Habi- 
tat for Humanity with whom 
they worked. "This experi- 
ence took what I was learn- 
ing and applied it to real life," 
she said. 

Therese Zaccagnino's ex- 
perience in Dr. Texter's class 
is not unusual in the Com- 
munication Department. 
Professors there have been using 
community learning in their classes 
to enhance the learning experience 
for some time. Communication 
students are called to take on vari- 
ous roles as a part of their classes 
from volunteering at a shelter for 
homeless women and children as 
in Dr. Terry Aisenstein's class to 
taking on the duties of guidance 
counselor at an underprivileged 
high school as in Dr. Marianne 
Dainton's class. 
The experience of community 

learning starts as early as fresh- 
man year. Dr. Aisenstein said. "If 
the students get influenced at the 
freshman level, they won't have 
to be pushed hard in later years." 
Students in her Interpersonal 
Communications class had an eth- 
nography assignment whereby 
they visited a place with cultural 
characteristics that were different 
from what they were used to. 
Whether it was a Jewish temple 
or a home for the elderly, students 


ter. Dr. Aisenstein notices that the 
community service provides posi- 
tive influences in the classroom and 
her class get closer as a group. 
Most importantly, however, the 
community learning "forces stu- 
dents to see we all have to respect 
one another," she said. 

Dr Marianne Dainton agrees. 
She uses community learning in 
her Group Communication class. 
Students in that class design a 
project addressing social need in 

were expected to interact with the 
people there and report their ex- 
periences to the class. According 
to Dr. Aisentein, their experiences 
often gave unexpected results that 
broke down the students' stereo- 

Dr Aisenstein also uses commu- 
nity learning in her Freshman Year 
Experience course. The class 
starts going to a shelter for under- 
privileged women and children on 
Branch Out Day and continues 
their visits throughout the semes- 

public education. In the past, one 
group volunteered at Martin 
Luther King, Jr. High School help- 
ing seniors fill out college applica- 
tions. Dr. Dainton said, "It sounds 
so simple but those students didn't 
have guidance counselors so they 
really needed help with their ap- 
plications." Most of the time de- 
voted by students to the commu- 
nity learning in Dr. Dainton's class 
is done on their own time, which 
is normal for most community 
learning experiences. However, 

some time in class is devoted to 
reflection periods during which 
students realize how their prac- 
tice is related to the field of com- 
munications and their positive in- 
fluence on others. According to 
Dr. Dainton, the positive influ- 
ence is not just felt by those in 
need. The students involved also 
benefit, experiencing things they 
wouldn't normally see, thereby 
broadening their horizons. The 
whole purpose of Dr. Dainton's 
approach is for students to 
"see the need and see that 
they can make a differ- 

Dr. Mike Smith applies 
the community learning 
technique in his Public Re- 
lations seminar. Much like 
the students in Dr. Texter's 
seminar, the students in Dr. 
Smith's class serve as agen- 
cies to several clients, or 
non-profit community 
groups, proposing, execut- 
ing, and evaluating a public 
relations project. The use 
of service learning in the 
classroom puts students in 
control. Dr. Smith said, 
"The students are in the 
driver's seat to a great extent." 
Along with teaching themselves 
management skills and flexibility, 
the students often tell Dr. Smith 
that the service has been a life- 
changing experience. He re- 
marked, "Several students have 
devoted more of their profes- 
sional lives to joining community 
service and public relations, while 
others have gained a greater ap- 
preciation for communities and 
their challenges."

Economics and International Studies Major offers students unique program 

Economics is the study of the 
process by which society attempts 
to efficiently use scarce resources 
that have alternate uses for the sat- 
isfaction of an unlimited number 
of present and future 
wants. This study is taught 
at La Salle by a department 
dedicated to preparing its 
students for an economy 
that is ever-changing. The 
economics major at La 
Salle requires eight core 
economics courses, five 
economic electives, two 
mathematical courses and 
two social science courses. 
It is a well-rounded prepa- 
ration which deals with ar- 
eas that play a vital role in 
the economy today. 

La Salle's Economics 
Department has many 
things about which to 
boast. Some of the high- 
est paid job offers have 
been given to economic 
majors. These are not only 
technical jobs, but posi- 
tions within the job market that 
are more oriented toward the lib- 
eral arts. Such jobs are those of 
consulting or international jobs, 

which allow the students to use all 
of the knowledge that they have 
learned while at La Salle. Since 
the field of economics is rather 
broad, the Economics Department

During the last 80 years, La

One program within the 
Department is that of Eco- 
nomics and International 
Studies, which is fairly 
popular among La Salle stu- 
dents and has been grow- 
ing in enrollment for the 
past six years. This pro- 
gram goes beyond the con- 
ventional foreign affairs 
programs because it re- 
quires foreign language 
courses as well as courses 
in politics, history and math. 
International business 
opens many doors for eco- 
nomics students, especially 
those fluent in another lan- 
guage. Some students 
study abroad; and once 
they complete the pro- 
gram, the job market available for 
them is quite substantial.

In 1986, La Salle started ttie country's first program to combine elementary education 
and special education into one degree 

La Salle University first started 
offering courses in pedagogy, the 
art and profession of teaching, in 
19 15, with five classes. By 1922, 
these courses were officially la- 
beled as "education." In 1924, 
fourteen courses were offered, in- 
cluding one in practice teaching 
and one in observation, which 
stressed on-site observation of high 
school teachers as well as on-cam- 
pus observation of La Salle pro- 
fessors teaching in various subject 
disciplines. In 1929, La Salle ap- 
plied to the Commonwealth of 
Pennsylvania for permission to 
grant teacher certification. 

Within the next five years, the 
Department expanded the curricu- 
lum to include seventeen courses, 
which stressed recent develop- 
ments in the fields of pedagogy and 
education. For example, the 
course entitled "Principles of High 
School Teaching" reflected pro- 
gressivism, by including "the prob- 
lem approach to teaching" and 
"project teaching." Also, require- 
ments for teacher certification 
grew to include 27 credits, 90 
hours of observation and 60 hours 
of student teaching. 

In 1945, the Education Depart- 
ment became part of the "Area 
of History and Social Science" in

year, "Guidance" was offered as 
an elective. In 1950, the 
Department required 10 courses

In 1986, La Salle started the

for certification in education, in- 
cluding three electives. By 1960, 
another 30 hours of student teach- 
ing were required. 

Throughout the next two de- 
cades, the Education Department 
at La Salle expanded greatly. New 
programs were added, such as a 
Commonwealth-approved one in 
special education. The number of 
full-time faculty was also in- 
creased. By 1975, the secondary 
education curriculum provided 
certification in many different spe- 
cialties, including biology, chem- 
istry, social studies, English, 
French, German, Spanish, Italian, 
Latin, mathematics, and math- 

In 1984, the Department began 
a graduate program leading to a 
Master of Arts degree. It was de- 
signed to offer career teachers in- 
sight into the way children, ado- 

first program in the United States 
to combine an elementary educa- 
tion with a special education pro- 
gram so that students could receive 
certification in both areas. Also 
during the 1 980s. the Department 
was approved to offer certification 
in the areas of both communica- 
tion and earth and space sciences. 
Finally, in the 1990s, the second- 
ary education program was reor- 
ganized, emphasizing the principles 
of human growth and develop- 

La Salle's Education program is 
unique in that it requires eveiy stu- 
dent in either the Elementary /Spe- 
cial Education or Secondary Edu- 
cation concentration to participate 
in field placement. From fresh- 
man year to junior year, each 
week, for a minimum of two 
hours, all majors are required to 
go into surrounding schools and 

to work with students to help 
relate what they learn in their 
classes to real-life situations. 

Education majors spend their 
senior year working profession- 
ally. For Secondary Education 
majors, a semester is spent 
working in a school 
district student 
teaching. For El- 
education majors, 
one semester is 
spent student teach- 
ing in special educa- 
tion classrooms with 
mildly, moderate, or 
severely mentally or 
physically challenged 
children. The sec- 
ond semester of the 
senior year for El- 
education majors is 
spent student teach- 
ing in general educa- 
tion classrooms. 

La Salle University has an ex- 
tremely strong education pro- 
gram, which successfully pre- 
pares its students to become 
well-rounded teachers who will 
provide a quality education to 
all their students, regardless of 
their backgrounds.

Spotlight on Dr. Judith Musser and Dr. John Beatty 

La Salle University is always 
excited to welcome new students, 
and it is always nice to see this 
welcome extended to new faculty 
as well. This year. La Salle's En- 
glish Department welcomed Dr. 
Judith Musser and Dr. John 
Beatty. Both come from very dif- 
ferent backgrounds, but love the 
environment here at La Salle. As 
Dr. Musser put it, "Although I am 
not Catholic, I feel very welcomed 
here; everyone is so pleasant and 

Although she was born and 
raised in the small town of 
Elizabethtown in Lancaster 
County, Pennsylvania, Dr. Musser 
has long since traveled away from 
her roots before coming to La 
Salle. She has lived three years in 
Maine and a year in Kentucky. 
Before then, she lived in Massa- 
chusetts where she studied English 
at Gordon College and received 
both her inspiration for her career 
and her Bachelor's degree. She 
recalls one of her undergraduate 
English professors as her career 
influence, stating that she "just 
loved what he did and could see 
myself doing it for the rest of my 
life." Since then. Dr. Musser has 
expanded her state travel to 

worldly travels, earning her 
master's degree from the Univer- 
sity of Aberdeen in Scotland, and 
teaching a year each in Poland and 
Scotland. She eventually com- 
pleted her Ph.D. at Purdue Uni- 

Dr. Musser states that although 
she teaches the same concepts 
year after year and has done all 
the readings numerous times, the 
years are never repetitive. "I love 
learning from the students. Every 
year there is always someone who 
points out an idea I missed, or 
makes me look at something from 
a completely different perspec- 
tive," she said. During the 

not as worldly traveled as Dr. 
Musser. he still possesses many 
different experiences in teaching 
and life. He began his college ca- 
reer with an undergraduate degree 
at the University of Toronto and 
went on to earn two Master's de- 
grees — one the University of Lon- 
don and one at Cornell — and a 
Ph.D. at the University of Texas. 
He has spent his career teaching 
at University of North Carolina at 
Penbroke, Baylor and the Univer- 
sity of Texas. 

Dr. Beatty is involved with his 
teaching. He said, "It motivates 
you to do your best and think cre- 
atively. I get very excited about 

^ac////// /(■ 6e/jcit't of iij/i (-Jaf/f' fo/ju/t/f ////// 

Fall Semester Dr. Musser taught 
Themes in Literature and Culture, 
Literature and the Sexes, and Stud- 
ies in American Literature Since 
1950, while in the Spring her 
classes included College Writing IL 
Experiencing Fiction, and Other 
Voices, Other Cultures. 

Dr. John Beatty, also new to the 
English Department, is a native of 
Ottawa, Canada. Although he is 

teaching new things. It's almost 
like a cycle. I get motivated to 
teach, then while teaching, get 
even more motivated to learn. It 
never ends." Dr Beatty enjoys a 
small campus setting. He be- 
lieves that in a small school, there 
always seems to be more re- 
sources per person, while in a 
large school, although it may 
have more information over all. 

there is not as much for the indi- 
vidual student. Reflecting on 
his own education. Dr. Beatty 
wishes that the focus had been 
more on teaching than on the 
subject matter: "Especially when 
going for your Ph.D., the focus 
tends to be on training you to be 
a superior thinker and researcher. 
Then you get in a classroom set- 
ting, and you have to convert 
what you know, so that you can 
educate others." 

Both professors offer advice 
for the students of La Salle, es- 
pecially the graduating class of 
2001. Dr. Musser stated, "Take 
the time to pursue what you re- 
ally want to do. So many times 
people chose careers for the 
money, but that shouldn't mat- 
ter. You should choose some- 
thing you will be really happy 
doing for the rest of your life." 
Dr. Beatty advised, "Be patient. 
Think about taking different 
paths and experiences. Don't 
panic if the first thing you try 
isn't the best; in fact, it prob- 
ably won't be. Sometimes try- 
ing several ideas before finding 
what is right is the best ap-

The Changing World of Art and Music 

The Fine Arts Department con- 
sists of two programs: music 
headed by Dr. Charles White and 
art and art history headed by Dr. 
Sabrina DeTurk 

Interest in music courses among 
La Salle students continues to 
grow. New courses offerings this 
past year included specialty 
courses that focused on great 
American composers such as 
George Gershwin and Louis 
Armstrong. Professor Robin 
Haffley, who recently has pro- 
duced a successful CD of his own 
jazz compositions, once again 
taught his course on electronic 
music. This year he expanded it 
to include digital sound design for 
web sites. 

New to the Music Program this 
past year were several adjunct 
faculty members with impressive 
credentials and specialties. 
Marian Hess, a professional 
French horn players and a mem- 
ber of the Chestnut St. Brass En- 

semble, taught World Music, in 
addition to Music 150. Susan 
McDonald, who specializes in 
computer-generated sound sys- 
tems, taught a course in twenti- 
eth-century contemporary music. 
Donald Reese, a guitarist and au- 
thor of an anthology of classical 
guitar music, taught America's 
Popular Music, a course that Dr. 
White said was met with "great 
enthusiasm and excellent student 

The Art and Art History Pro- 
gram also experienced some 
changes this past year, particu- 
larly in terms of its curriculum 
and course offerings. According 
to Dr. De Turk, the emphasis in 
revising the curriculum was to 
focus not only on the history of 
the arts in the past but also to al- 
low the students more opportu- 
nity to learn about contemporary 
ideas. In an attempt to help stu- 
dents further their study of the 
contemporary arts, the Art and 

Art History Program is now of- 
fering several courses regularly 
that previously were offered as 
specialty courses. These include 
ART 210-Women and Art and 
ART 212-History and Theory of 
Digital Art. 

The Art and Art History Pro- 
gram also made these changes to 
help students who will be using 
the new core curriculum begin- 
ning this year. The previously 
offered introductory courses fo- 
cused broadly on the history of 
art. However, the new introduc- 
tory courses, which include ART 
151- Visualizing the Sacred and 
ART 152-Visualizing the Self 
and Others, are assigned more 
distinct themes and allow instruc- 
tors more opportunity to intro- 
duce to the students more of their 
own personal work and ideas. For 
example, if a professor were 
greatly intrigued by Gothic cathe- 
drals, these courses would allow 
more flexibility for him or her to 

introduce this area of interest. The 
new curriculum also offers more 
flexibility to those in the major. 
The new courses give the students 
a chance to broaden their horizons 
and take courses that are of par- 
ticular interest to them while still 
filling major requirements. 

Although the revision of the 
curriculum has been quite a 
lengthy process. Dr. DeTurk 
hopes that its will be well worth- 
while for the students. The Art 
and Art History Program is hop- 
ing to shift in a more contempo- 
rary direction at the request of stu- 
dents with interests in the field. 
In addition to these courses in the 
revised curriculum. Dr. DeTurk 
mentioned that she is currently 
planning to add a new travel smdy 
course in the spring of 2002 that 
she hopes will be as successful as 
those of previous years.

Spotlight on Dr. Les Barenbaum 

Hired to help start La Salle's 
Masters in Business Administra- 
tion Program in 1976, Dr. Les 
Barenbaum has been teaching in 
the Finance Department ever 
since. Dr. Barenbaum received a 
bachelors degree of Business Ad- 
ministration from Bernard Baruch 
College — part of the City Univer- 
sity of New York — and his Ph.D. 
in Economics from Rutgers Uni- 
versity. In addition, he taught eco- 
nomics at Rutgers while working 
toward his Ph.D. in 1975 and 

Since coming to La Salle, Dr. 
Barenbaum has seen La Salle's 
School of Business Program un- 
dergo many changes, and, in fact, 
currently the school is again pro- 

posing curriculum changes. As a 
result, these changes are causing 
the Finance Department to expe- 
rience some restructuring. Accord- 
ing to Dr. Barenbaum, the goals 
of the new curriculum are to offer 
students more electives, to in- 
crease the number of courses in a 
student's major field of study, to 
make the core classes more rel- 
evant, and to prepare students for 
the changing business world. For 
the Finance Department, these 
changes mean that a new course 
will be added to its major, and that 
the department will work more 
closely with the Accounting De- 
partment to offer core courses that 
provide students with more of an 
accounting background. 

Dr. Barenbaum sees a trend to- 
ward "paring down the cuniculum 
to make it more relevant." In ad- 
dition, he believes that by provid- 
ing room for more electives, fi- 
nance majors have more flexibil- 
ity to minor in other areas. This 
trend also works the other way, 
allowing for other majors to mi- 
nor more easily in finance. Dr. 
Barenbaum reflects that histori- 
cally the School of Business func- 
tioned as if all the departments 
were separate and unrelated. With 
the new curriculum in place, how- 
ever, the school will work more 
like the business world, and the 

department will be integrated. 

Dr. Barenbaum sees these 
changes as positive and helpfiil to 
the students. As the business 
world changes with the advent of 
new technology, new consumer 
needs, and a new global perspec- 
tive. La Salle's Finance Depart- 
ment is changing too. Senior Chris 
McBryan says, "My finance 
classes have given me an extra 
edge in the business world." By 
keeping current, he and other fi- 
nance majors at La Salle will be 
ahead when they graduate.

The Foreign Languages and Literatures Department aims to broaden cultural understanding 

The Department of Foreign 
Languages and Literatures offers 
students the opportunity to learn 
to communicate with people in 
other countries and to attain a 
broader social and cultural under- 
standing. To this end, the pro- 
grams within this department 
strive to develop the students' fa- 
cility in comprehension, speaking, 
reading, and writing. They also 
give the students knowledge of the 
historic development and appre- 
ciation of a given language and its 

Students are given the opportu- 
nity to major in either the Classics 
(Greek and Latin) or one of five 
modem languages. The modem 
languages offered at La Salle are 
French, German, Italian, Russian, 
and Spanish. Other languages in 
which instmction is provided are 
Irish Gaelic, Japanese, Polish, and 
Ukrainian. Minor programs exist 
in Asian as well as Central and 
Eastern European Studies. In con- 
junction with the Education De- 

partment, the Department of For- 
eign Languages offers teaching cer- 
tification in French, German, Ital- 
ian, Latin, and Spanish. 

This department offers not only 
language instruction, but also a 
multitude of classes that center on 
culture and literature. Further- 
more, if the educational needs of 
a student are not being met, a stu- 
dent can request an independent 
study in which a topic is decided 
upon by the student and a faculty 

In addition to courses, there are 
many language clubs and honor 
societies for students of foreign 
languages. For example, the 
French club is committed to ex- 
panding French culture and lan- 
guage. This past year in conjunc- 
tion with the Funding Board, it in- 
vited a traditional French singer to 

Along with this language club. 
Pi Delta Phi, a French Honor So- 
ciety, exists. For those students 
meeting the extensive require- 

ments to be inducted, it sewes as 
a means for students to congre- 
gate and discuss contemporary 
French issues. Other languages 
also have clubs and honor societ- 

i2i)eAaft?ne>if ''/arfo a ne/i' 

ies in which students can 
partake. These clubs are open to 
every student at La Salle. It is not 
a requirement to speak a particu- 
lar foreign language to join a par- 
ticular language club; the only re- 
quirement is to be open-minded 
and enjoy leaming about foreign 

To foster such an appreciation, 
the Foreign Languages Depart- 
ment and the School of Arts and 

Sciences have begun a new travel- 
study program. The flindamental 
idea of this program is that stu- 
dents will benefit more thoroughly 
from the material of a given course 
when they are able to experience 
related leaming on site. Immer- 
sion into the appropriate culture 
leads to a deeper, immediate un- 
derstanding of the material to be 
analyzed in class. For example, 
visiting historic sites can increase 
the students' ability to compre- 
hend and retain information from 
a course. 

All students enrolling in these 
specially designed courses par- 
ticipate in the travel component at 
minimal cost. Since the fravel is 
built into holiday or break periods, 
during a regular term, students are 
not paying extra tuition costs; and 
any financial aid for which the stu- 
dent is eligible will apply. Travel 
can be within the United States or 
abroad to one site or a journey to 
several locations.

The Geology, Environmental Science, & Physics Department offers one-on-one attention 

The Geology and Physics De- 
partment has been a part of La 
Salle for 30 years. The department 
is composed of five faculty mem- 
bers; Henry A. Bart, Ph.D., David 
Lee Smith, Ph.D., Alice L. 
Hoersch, Ph.D., Bertram Strieb, 
M.S., and Stephen A. Longo, 
Ph.D. Dr. Henry A. Bart serves 
as the departinent's chair Because 
the department is small, majors 
enjoy a one-on-one relationship 
with their professors. In fact, the 
department is credited with pro- 
viding students with many job op- 

The department offers a strong 
liberal arts program, which pre- 
pares students for graduate school 
or a career in geology. A geology 

major requires a wide range of 
courses from earth history to math, 
and students are also recom- 
mended to take physics, biology 
and chemistry. Consequently, 
gi'aduates are qualified to begin ca- 
reers in industry, such as 

/eha/'f//ir/i/ /la-i /jee/i hr/ri 

with the National Forest or Park 
Service or with the Environmen- 
tal Protection Agency. 

In addition, the department is 
technologically advanced, and stu- 
dents have access to computers 
and other state-of-the-art equip- 
ment. For example, majors have 

use of an x-ray defractor, which 
gives a blueprint of certain miner- 
als, and a magnetometer, which 
can be used to locate magnetic 
fields. Students also have access 
to diamond saws and grinders, 
which they can use to prepare 

Because of the small class size 
of courses for majors — usually 6 
to 10 students — majors receive a 
great deal of one-on-one instrac- 
tion, which is important in this 
hands-on field. Most majors are 
members of the Geology Club and 
participate in departmental 
field trips, where students 
apply classroom material. 
They study fossils, landfills, » 
quarries and folds, all of 

which are documented on geologi- 
cal maps in Holroyd Hall. Most 
geology majors frequent the geol- 
ogy lounge and help each other 
learn more about their field of 

As the new millennium ap- 
proaches, the need for geology 
majors is increasing because there 
are many problems in society such 
as oil shortages, energy needs and 
pollution control that only geologi- 
cal experts can answer

The History Department takes pride in its faculty publications 

The History Department is 
proud of the recent accomplish- 
ments of its faculty and the activi- 
ties it has sponsored over the past 
few years. Several professors have 
been writing and publishing, while 
some of the students have been 
eagerly engaged in writing essays 
for the Leo and McHale prizes. 
Also, both faculty and students 
have taken part in various trips 
sponsored by the Historical Soci- 

Dr. Stuart Leiberger published 
his book Founding Friendship in 
1 999, which details the collabora- 
tion of Washington and Madison 
and their establishment and imple- 
mentation of the U.S. Constitu- 
tion. Dr.George Stow and Dr. 
Charles Desnoyers collaborated in 
producing a world history text- 
book entitled Patterns of World 
History, hitroducing new informa- 
tion, these two established schol- 
ars approached the material in their 
book from theoretical and peda- 
gogical perspectives. In addi- 
tion, Dr.Desnoyers has been work- 
ing on yet another book, A New 
Account ofthe Journey Around the 
Globe, a translation from Chinese 
to English of a prominent Chinese 
official's journal entries detailing 
his trip to the United States as well 
as his trips to London, Paris, the 
Suez Canal, and India. Professor 
Desnoyers is keenly interested in 
realizing the cultural perspectives 
of different nations. He com- 
mented, "Writing this book essen- 
tially taught me to see ourselves 
as others see us. It allowed me to 
approach American history 
through the eyes of someone far 
removed from it, providing me 

with vast insights into Chinese cul- 
ture at the same time." 

In addition. Dr. John Rossi pub- 
lished two books over the last few 
years. His first novel, A Whole 
New Game, published in June of 
1 999, shows the relation between 
American history and baseball, 
paralleling the changes in Ameri- 
can life with transitions in base- 
ball. Dr. Rossi completed yet an- 
other book on baseball in April of 
2000 entitled National Game. 
This scholarly work describes the 
fransitions in baseball in relation 
to the events in history from the 
end of World War II up to and 
including 1 960. 

Besides this history faculty 
scholarship, history students have 

been busy competing for the an- 
nual Leo and McHale prizes. Both 
prizes are financed by John 
McHale, an extremely accom- 
plished and renowned La Salle 
graduate, who was also a former 
editor ofthe New York Times. The 
Leo Prize of $2500 for the win- 
ner and $500 for the ruimer-up is 
given to the best article written by 
a La Salle student on a particular 
aspect of Philadelphia or the Dela- 
ware Valley. The McHale Prize 
gives $2500 in scholarship money 
to a high school student with the 
winning essay on a researched 
topic also related to Philadelphia. 
In addition to these competitions 
for students, the History Depart- 
ment with the Historical Society 

sponsors various trips for them 
through the year. In the past, these 
trips have included local ones to 
Bryn Athyn and Brandywine as 
well as to the Holocaust Museum 
in Washington D.C. Also previ- 
ously. Dr. Leibiger and the His- 
torical Society took students to 
several Civil War battle sites as 
part of travel course for the week 
of spring break. 

These trips enhance what the 
students are taught in classes from 
faculty who are eager to encour- 
age them to write and who with 
their own writings serve as mod-

Spotlight on Dr. Daniel McFcrland 

Any management student who 
has frequented College Hall 
within the last two years most 
likely will have met Dr. Daniel 
McFarland. Originally from 
Levittown, Dr. McFarland re- 
ceived his Bachelor of Science in 
1987, his MBA in Operations 
Research in 1992 and his Ph.D. 
in Management Infonnation Sys- 
tems in 1999 from Drexel Uni- 
versity. Teaching previously at 
Rowan, Drexel and Saint 
Joseph's Universities, Dr. 
McFarland came to La Salle in 
1999. Currently, he teaches un- 
dergraduate courses such as the 
introductory MIS course for busi- 
ness and non-business majors, 
Business Application Program- 
ming and Software, Database 
Management and Applications 

Development Field Study. How- 
ever, he also teaches several 
graduate courses: Business Appli- 
cation Programming, Database 
Management, Information Tech- 
nology for Decision Makers and 
Project Management for Infonna- 
tion Technology. 

Besides interacting with stu- 
dents in the classroom. Dr. 
McFarland has worked with stu- 
dents through the MIS Student 
Leadership Association, an orga- 
nization he started this past fall. 
Students in this association offer 
their technical services to orga- 
nizations outside of the Univer- 
sity setting such as local churches 
and non-profit organizations, 
teaching individuals how to be- 
come technologically knowledge- 
able and self sufficient in areas

that were once foreign to them. 
Students are expected to put to- 
gether samples of their work to 
show future employers the skills 
they have obtained. 

Asked about his views on work- 
ing with students and teaching at 
La Salle, Dr. McFarland replied: 
" La Salle is a student oriented at- 
mosphere where the faculty genu- 
inely care about the perfonnance 
of their students. I have never 
seen a group of people bend over 
backwards sacrificing what little 
time and energy they have on the 
betterment of their students." 
Thinking of his own children — 
his one son and two daughters. 
Dr. McFarland said that La Salle 
University is the first school that 
he has taught at where he would 
want his children to attend. "It 

also lives up to its image of a 
Catholic university," he added, 
"Everyone is made to feel like 
they are genuinely good people 
here; you don't find that at many

Spotlight on ttie Marketing Department 

Though small in number, the Marketing 
Department consists of four fiall-time faculty 
members whose backgrounds and interests 
span a wide range. 

Dr. James Talaga, the department's chair, 
came to La Salle in 1998 to teach marketing 
courses; however, he first earned his BA in 
economics at the University of Illinois and then 
earned a MBA in computer information sci- 
ence at Temple University. Dr. Talaga then 
went on to eam his Ph.D. in Marketing at 
Temple, while he worked at a marketing re- 
search firm and taught part-time at West 
Chester. In the School of Business, Dr. Talaga 
is involved with travel-study courses. He spe- 
cializes in marketing research and international 
marketing, but his research interest lies par- 
ticularly in non-profit marketing. Dr. Talaga 
has had several articles published over the 
years and is working on several more, one of 
which will have been published this spring. 
When he is not teaching, Dr. Talaga enjoys 
classical music, foreign films and travel. 

Dr. Andrew Bean's background is quite dif- 
ferent from Dr. Talaga's. He earned his un- 
dergraduate degree in electrical engineering 
at Pennsylvania State University and then 
went on to eam both a MBA in Marketing 
and a MS in psychology at Temple before 

receiving his doctorate degree in psychology 
from the University of Pennsylvania. At 
Temple, Dr. Jones taught for twelve years 
before coming to La Salle in 1982. He is an 
expert in research design, statistics and data 
analysis. His marketing interests include con- 
sumer behavior and marketing research. Spe- 
cifically, he has studied and published in the 
field of healthcare marketing. When not teach- 
ing or involved with scholarly research. Dr. 
Bean enjoys fishing, gardening, hiking, travel- 
ing, boating, biking, and reading -particularly 
about American history. 

Dr. Sharon Javie, like Dr. Bean, also started 
her teaching career at La Salle in 1982. Dr. 
Javie earned her BA, MBA, and doctorate 
degrees in marketing at Temple. After re- 
ceiving her MBA, Dr. Javie held an account 
Executive position in sales at AT&T. Besides 
specializing in marketing research, consumer 
behavior and promotion, she is also expanding 
her professional interests to e-commerce and 
Internet marketing. Currently, she is working 
on a business-to-business study with Dr. 
James Talaga and is in charge of the intern- 
ship program in the Marketing Department. 
In her spare time. Dr. Javie teaches religious 
education to fifth and sixth grade students. 

Dr. David B. Jones, like Dr. Bean, has two 

psychology degrees. He earned a BA at the 
University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill in 
psychology and an MS in psychology as well 
as an MBA at Virginia Tech. He also fin- 
ished his Ph.D. in marketing there. Before 
coming to La Salle in 1992, Dr. Jones worked 
as a psychologist doing marketing management 
in various community mental health centers 
and community action centers. He has also 
done consulting work for the wine and tele- 
communications industries and has consulted 
for both national and international businesses. 
Through the School of Business' Partnering 
Program, he continues to do consulting work 
for profit agencies, while also volunteering his 
expertise for Philadelphia non-profit organi- 
zations. Dr. Jones specializes in marketing 
and consumer behavior, as it relates to pro- 
motional strategy and fundamental issues of 
marketing. This March, one of his articles on 
the subject was published in Psychology and 
Marketing. When not involved with market- 
ing. Dr. Jones, like his colleague Dr. Bean, 
enjoys fishing and gardening, but unlike his 
other colleagues in the Marketing Depart- 
ment — when asked about his favorite pas- 
times — he mentions cooking.

Spotlight on Dr. Jonathon Knappenberger and Dr. Carl McCarty 

La Salle University's Mathemat- 
ics and Computer Science Depart- 
ment has a lot to be proud of this 
year. First of all, the recent addi- 
tion of new computer labs has 
strengthened the department's 
ability to provide necessai^ and 
valuable tools for its students. 
Besides the benefits of more tech- 
nology for its use, the department 
is also honored to have a faculty 
that remains dedicated to its stu- 
dents' education. 

The newest computer labs in 
Olney Hall were created as a re- 
sponse to the growing needs of 
computer science students and 
those in the Information Technol- 
ogy (IT) program. The lab in 
Olney, which was built in the 
spring of 2000, is primarily used 
by IT students and computer sci- 
ence majors for both independent 
student work and tutoring. Also, 
smaller classes have made good 
use of it. In addition, a second 

lab a few months later was made 
possible through a grant that the 
school obtained. This lab is gen- 
erally used for IT and computer 
science and math classes. These 
computer labs and the DArt lab, 
constructed a few years ago, have 
significantly helped to meet the 

t^Vem /a/>j aiu/ tieir tem'/u'/'o 

technological needs of all stu- 
dents associated with the Depart- 

Another new addition to the 
Department is Dr. Jonathan 
Knappenberger who received his 
Ph.D. in mathematics from 
Temple University in 1 993 and 
previously taught for nine years 
at Holy Family College. Dr. 
Knappenberger is very excited 
about being able to work with 

the large full-time faculty in the 
Math Department here at La 
Salle. Doing so will enable him 
to learn from his colleagues and 
also share ideas of his own with 
them. In addition, he looks for- 
ward to learning from his stu- 
dents. He intends to make good 
use of the technology available, 
which he thinks is incredibly use- 
ful in its ability to help students 
see things that would be very dif- 
ficult to see otherwise. When 
asked about the importance in 
studying math in the first place. 
Dr. Knappenberger responded 
that is important because it 
teaches critical thought and the 
ability to reason deductively. 

While Dr. Knappenberger is 
new to La Salle, Dr. Carl 
McCarthy is one of the more ex- 
perienced professors here on 
campus, being a graduate of both 
La Salle High School and La 
Salle University. Dr. McCarty 

says that it was mainly because 
of the teachers he had as a stu- 
dent that he first became inter- 
ested in mathematics. He be- 
lieves that studying math is a 
valuable educational experience 
because of its beauty, its rel- 
evance in the modem world and 
its ability to foster logical think- 
ing. When asked about what he 
hopes his students gain from 
their studies. Dr. McCarthy re- 
sponded that he hopes they do 
not become afraid of math. Be- 
ing able to think logically and to 
picture mathematical concepts, 
rather than simply memorizing in- 
formation, is what he hopes his 
students will learn. Over the 
years Dr. McCarthy has enjoyed 
good interaction with his stu- 
dents amidst the friendly atmo- 
sphere at La Salle, the place that 
he calls home.

A nursing student's day starts early 

It's 5 am, the alarm is ringing 
and La Salle's Nursing students 
are beginning a new and exciting 
day. When other students are 
going to their first classes, nurs- 
ing students are dressed in blue 
and white crisp uniforms, armed 
with a stethoscope and a smile, 
already at their clinical site fin- 
ishing vital signs, bed baths, medi- 
cations and other necessary tasks 
in order to complete their care for 

La Salle's School of Nursing of- 
fers a challenging and rigorous 
schedule of not only class lectures 
but also experience in hospitals 
and clinics. Highly trained and 
dedicated administrators and fac- 

ulty stress the importance of de- 
veloping critical thinking skills in 
order to teach, advocate, coordi- 
nate, and research in a variety of 

courses include basic foundation 
courses, psychology, sociology, 
statistics, microbiology, anatomy 
and physiology and chemistry.

status of not only individuals but 
their families and communities as 

Students complete two years of 
liberal arts education. These 

Upon the completion of these 
courses and advancement into 
junior year, students begin to learn 
basic techniques and are guided 
into nursing. Junior nursing stu- 
dent Alana Dudack states, "Al- 
though the clinical activities and 
classes are different from the lib- 
eral arts curriculum, I feel as if I 

am prepared to explore new ho- 
rizons in nursing and La Salle is 
able to offer them to me." 

After taking foundation nursing 
courses in assessment, fundamen- 
tals, pharmacology, chronic illness 
and maternity, students move 
onto a difficult senior year. Se- 
nior year encompasses exciting 
new endeavors for the students 
soon approaching pinning, gradu- 
ation and Board exams. 

The Nursing School, consistent 
with LaSallian values, helps to 
provide an excellent education to 
develop competent, caring, di- 
verse and knowledgeable profes- 
sional nurses.

The Philosophy Department at La Salle stays current 

LaSalle University's Philosophy 
Department is constantly chang- 
ing with the times. To stay cur- 
rent, it offers a wide variety of 
courses, such as Current Ethical 

Issues and Work and Culture and 
each semester sponsors lectures 
and symposiums through its Phi- 
losophy Series. The Department 
has hosted this series for the past 
28 years in an effort to keep the 
La Salle community informed on 
different aspects of philosophy 
along with different controversial 
issues that society face. The top- 
ics in the series have ranged from 
"Religion and Art" to "The Mani- 
festo of the Unabomber: A Sym- 
posium on Technology and Sci- 
ence." The lectures are run by 
both faculty and students and of- 
ten with the collaboration of other 
departments. The Department 
specifically tries to have lectures 
that relate to some of the classes 
that are being taught in a particu- 
lar semester. Occasionally the lec- 
tures and symposiums are co- 
sponsored with other institutions 
such as the Northwest Regional 
Branch of the Free Library of

Philadelphia. The lecturers are 
often professors at LaSalle or lo- 
cal philosophers, some of whom 
come from a group known as 
"Commonwealth Speakers," a 
group sponsored by the Pennsyl- 
vania Humanities Council. They 
use their expertise in a variety of 
areas to enlighten those who at- 
tend the series. 

Many of the topics covered in 
the series are controversial issues 
in today's society that affect the 
life of the students and faculty at 
La Salle. One such program last 
year was a symposium entitled "Ex 
Corde Ecclesiae: Possibilities and 
Probabilities, Hopes and Fears." 
This symposium discussed the Ap- 
ostolic Constitution on Catholic 
Universities announced by Pope 
John Paul II on August 15, 1990." 
The symposium discussed issues 
raised by the document such as 
whether theology professors at 
catholic universities should be 

forced to take an oath of ortho- 
doxy. This symposium was held 
by both faculty and students whose 
areas of interest ranged from phi- 
losophy and religion to marketing 
and mathematics. 

Some of the lectures and sym- 
posiums held in the past included 
"Justice and Contemporary Eth- 
ics," "The Place of Humanity in 
the Cosmos," "Prudence, Trust 
and Luck," "Guns and Voices: In- 
mates Reflect on Violence and 
Hope" (co-sponsored by the De- 
partment of Sociology, Social 
Work, and Criminal Justice) and 
"The Manifesto of the 
Unabomber: A Symposium on 
Technology and Science." The 
Department is proud of the Phi- 
losophy Series and plans to con- 
tinue with the lectures and sym- 
posiums in the fiature.

Political Science Department committed to educating students about ttieir world 

Elections in general are big 
news events and are often dis- 
cussed in university classrooms, 
especially in political science 
courses. The 2000 Presidential 
Election was no exception. This 
past fall not only was the elec- 
tion a major topic for discussion 
in classes at La Salle, but the Po- 
litical Science Department en- 
couraged students to watch some 
of the presidential debates to- 
gether in the Williamson Lounge 
and to attend speeches by politi- 
cians who visited campus. 

Within the classrooms, this 
election in particular sparked dis- 
cussions on a multitude of top- 
ics including the importance of 
one vote, the role of the state 
and federal supreme courts in de- 
termining the outcome of an 
election and the reliability of the 
current election process in the 
United States. One of the most 
important topics addressed in the 
aftermath of the 2000 election 
was the role of the Electoral Col- 
lege in the election process. 

Proposals to reform or elimi- 
nate the Electoral College have 
been made in the past and, in the 
light the recent presidential elec- 
tion, have come up again. Dr. 
Joseph Brogan, associate profes- 
sor in the Political Science De- 
partment commented, "Discus- 
sions about reforming the Elec- 
toral College that I have heard 
have been so simplistic as to be 

frightening." He noted that 
many educated and uneducated 
people in discussing the electoral 
controversy seem ignorant of 
how democracy in America ac- 
tually works. 

Dr. Brogan questioned 
whether high schools, colleges 
and universities are doing their 
job when "graduates do not know 
the most basic features of their 

However, the Political Science 
Department at La Salle is com- 
mitted to teaching its students 
about all facets of the election 
process. The foundation courses 
for a major or minor in the po- 
litical science or public adminis- 
tration include classes that teach 
about the Electoral College. In 
addition, because of the changes 
made last year to the 
department's curriculum, stu- 
dents now take an extra Ameri- 
can government course of their 

In all political science courses, 
Dr. Brogan, Dr. Kenneth Hill and 
Dr. Mary-Ellen Bachunis-Harris 
encourage discussions on current 
issues and ask students to think 
critically and realistically about 
them. Indeed, the Political Sci- 
ence Department here at La Salle 
is working hard to educate stu- 
dents and, in the process, creat- 
ing better informed citizens.

Spotlight On Dr. Arlana 

Within the Psychology Depart- 
ment, many facuhy members are 
presently conducting research. 
One such faculty member is Dr. 
Ariana Shahinfar, a developmen- 
tal psychologist who joined the 
La Salle faculty in the fall of 

Previously Dr. Shahinfar pub- 
lished on topics related to com- 
munity structures and their im- 
pact on aggression and develop- 
ment. Educated as a trainer in the 
Second Step Violence Prevention 
Program, she has been trained 
extensively in both intervention 
and program evaluation tech- 
niques. She has also served as a 
consultant to intervention projects 
with aggressive children at both 
the University of Maryland at 
College Park and the University 


of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 
Currently, Dr. Shahinfar is re- 
searching the effects of commu- 
nity violence exposure on chil- 
dren, which was the main topic 
of her dissertation. Her main 
goals in this type of research is 
attempting to understand aggres- 
sive behavioral problems of pre- 

in studying the correlation be- 
tween children who have been 
arrested and the level of exposure 
to community violence they have 
experienced during crucial stages 
in their development. Currently, 
she has begun a research group 
with several seniors and juniors. 
Beginning in Januai-y 2001, Dr.

school age children after having 
been exposed to violence in their 
neighborhood and community 
and study how such exposure can 
ultimately skew their develop- 
Dr. Shaninfar is also interested 

Shahinfar and her research assis- 
tants have conducted a short-term 
longitudinal study to evaluate the 
effect of a therapeutic community 
on cognitive and behavioral 
change among participants in the 
Young Adult Offender program 

at SCI Pine Grove. 

The group has interviewed in- 
carcerated juveniles in three dif- 
ferent stages of their develop- 
ment: 1) when they first enter the 
facility, 2) when they complete 
the first step of the program, and 
finally 3) nine months later. Dr. 
Shahinfar' s main goal is to use the 
results of this research to develop 
some intervention programs to 
reduce aggressive behavior 
among children and adolescents. 
In planning this research, she 
remarked, "I'm really excited to 
get the project off of the ground, 
and the students involved seem to 
have a sincere interest which will 
make the project successful from 
the start."

La Salle's Religion Department upholds legacy of St. John Baptist de La Salle 

The La Salle Religion Depart- 
ment does its best to teach in ac- 
cordance with the ideals of St. 
John Baptist de la Salle who 
founded the Christian Brothers. 
As one student observed, "unlike 
other majors and careers where 
you study what you want to do 
during your life, a religious major 
touches who you are." 

Another student said, "The Re- 
ligion Department at La Salle isn't 
just about the Catholic Church. 
It's about the history, the Bible, 
Eastern religions, and how reli- 
gion shaped our society. It's 
about culture and humanity." 
With electives dealing with the 
theological, Biblical, historical and 
various religious studies, 
La Salle's Religion Department of- 

fers students a well-rounded edu- 

Religion classes are specifically 
designed to give the full educa- 
tion that St. John Baptist de la 
Salle had in mind when he began 
the Christian Brothers three cen- 
turies ago. La Salle wanted to 
provide the best education pos- 
sible for those who could not af- 
ford it. The Religion Department 
works to do the same thing by 
inspiring students to think like the 
school's patron. With courses 
such as Peace and Justice and 
Contemporary Moral and Eccle- 
siastical Issues, the Department 
seeks to involve its students in the 
vision that de la Salle himself had 
when he started his order. 
The Religion Department par- 

ticularly tries to uphold Christian 
Brothers ideals through its faculty. 
Not only are they well prepared 
to teach their subject, but 

'!/>mtaa/ 'jif/e to 
f/if/)' er/iffafio/i. 

also they try to uphold the 
Lasallian ideals in their personal 
lives. When the Christian Broth- 
ers were founded in 1691, edu- 
cation was integral to their mis- 
sion. Now 310 years later, the 
Religion Department faculty car- 
ries out this basic objective. 

A fine example of the Christian 
Brothers' ideals is displayed 
through the Catholic studies mi- 
nor. This minor has been of- 
fered for the last several years to 
give students a chance to explore 
the Catholic spiritual heritage. It 
is a multi-disciplinary program 
that touches on the fine arts, so- 
cial work, political science, En- 
glish, history and philosophy as 
well as religion. Taught by vari- 
ous teachers, the Catholic stud- 
ies minor allows students to ex- 
plore Catholicism as well as other 
areas of their lives. Students re- 
ceive a secular education while 
being challenged to think of their 
spirituality and how it relates to 
their lives and the community of 
which they are a part.

'al Q 

Spotlight on Dr. Bonnie Zetick and Dr. Donna Fiedler 

This past year the Department 
of Sociology, Social Work and 
Criminal Justice has hired two new 
full-time professors for the Social 
Work Program: Dr. Bonnie Zetick 
and Dr. Donna Fiedler. 

Dr. Bonnie Zetick received her 
B.A. in Sociology from Indiana 
University of Pennsylvania, her 
Masters in Social Work from the 
University of Pittsburgh and her 
Ph.D. in Social Work from Bryn 
Mawr Graduate School. Although 
she has worked in the social work 

field for many years, she is enjoy- 
ing the opportunity to teach for the 
first time here at La Salle in a pro- 
gram that she describes as won- 
derful and satisfying. 

Dr Zetick worked as an advo- 
cate for the Association for Re- 
tarded Citizens. In this position she 
was able to help get laws passed 
and make critical services such as 
public schooling available for her 
clients. In addition, she worked for 
the County Board Assistance and 
Mental Health Clinic and felt that 

through this position she was able 
to make an impact on people's 

Dr. Zetick feels that the mission 
of social work closely parallels the 
Lasallian mission, and this simi- 
larity provides a terrific atmosphere 
in which to work.. "The students, 
faculty and alumni are all so fo- 
cused on the mission of aiding so- 
ciety through the education; I think 
it's great," explains Dr. Zetick. 
She sees that expansion within the 
Social Work Department as immi- 
nent, and com- 
ments that with the 
aging population 
there will be plenty 
of opportunities 
for those entering 
Social Work. She 
concludes, "I've 
been made to feel 
so welcome here at 
La Salle. I am 
happy to join this 
institution and feel 
privileged to be 
given this opportu- 
nity by the Dean 
and Provost. Soci- 
ety needs trained 
social workers to 
combat the prob- 
lems we will face, 
and I feel that La 
Salle's Social 
Work Department 
will be here for a 
long time offering 
a quality pro- 

Donna Fiedler, Ph.D., CFLE, 
ceived her B.A. in Sociology from 
Juniata College in 1969. She ob- 
tained her masters and her doc- 
torate in Social Work from Rutgers 
University. After receiving her de- 
grees, Fiedler became heavily in- 
volved in trauma and crisis work. 
She has worked as a volunteer for 
the Red Cross Disaster Program 
and as a Sexual Ethics and Crisis 
counselor for the United Method- 
ist Church. Over the twenty-five 
years Dr. Fiedler has worked, she 
has been involved in the entire 
spectrum of trauma care and has 
also become actively involved in 
advocacy for mental health insur- 

Dr. Fiedler also has two work- 
books in the process of being pub- 
lished, which help children who 
have been through a traumatic ex- 
perience or a crisis. She is also de- 
veloping a trauma-trainmg manual 
and hopes to have this published 
as well. 

Although Dr. Fiedler has taught 
at other insfitutions, she feels like 
Dr. Zetick that her experience here 
is helpfial because of the close ties 
between social work and Lasallian 
values. When asked about the fir- 
ture of La Salle's Social Work pro- 
gram, she replied. "This is a great 
adult studies program which al- 
lows for the entire spectrum of stu- 
dents to be represented within this 
field. I feel we will confinue to ex- 
pand and help people become 
aware of what social work is. 
We're learning as much as we're

ulticultural Associations 

((/twciti/m and ^^^y^jbreeiatlna 

Anyone passing by the Dan Rodden Theater cannot help but notice 
the diversity quilt hanging on the wall. This quilt made in October 
2000 through the Center for Community Sei-vice and Learning con- 
sists of patches filled with encouraging quotes from students and fac- 
ulty and demonstrates how the university lives out the mission state- 
ment of the Multicultural and International Center to work "with the 
entire campus community to improve awareness of, and appreciation 
for, racial and cultural diversity." However, this appreciation of cul- 
tural diversity is shown in many areas at La Salle, particularly through 
its multicultural student groups. 

Some of these groups include the African American Student League 
(AASL), the Cross Cultural Association (CCA), A/ASIA, the Orga- 
nization of Latino American Students (OLAS), Irish Culture Society 
and the Italian Club. Throughout the year, these groups, in conjunc- 
tion with many other student organizations, bring distinguished speak- 
ers, poets, bands, and concerts to campus and sponsor related events. 
One such event this year was the celebration of Black History 
Month, which kicked off in February with ALANA (African, Latino, 
Asian, Native American) and the International Student Welcome 
Reception in Hayman Hall. Other programs included a trip to a College 
Career Fair at the Adam's Mark Hotel, a poetry slam, a performance 
of original R&B and disco music by IMANI, a movie night and a jazz 

New this year were forums surrounding gender awareness and a 
pilgrimage to the Shrine of Blessed Katherine Drexel. A forum entitled 
"Crisis of the Black Male" gave the black male population the 
opportunity to discuss issues of importance to their development, 
whereas one entitled "Sisterhood Circle" stressed the importance of 
women's friendships. The University Ministry and Service and the 
AASL sponsored the pilgrimage to St. Katherine Drexel's shrine to 
enhance students' understanding of St. Katherine's life and work. 

A much-anticipated annual event was the Gospel Jubilee also held 
in Februai7 with La Salle's Gospel Choir and members from the 
suiTounding community. Additionally there was a day of presentations 
that gave students from area high schools the opportunity to visit La 
Salle and understand the importance of cultural pluralism in their 

Multicultural organizations have helped bring awareness not only to 
these high school students but also to the students of La Salle. Whether 
the Irish Culture Society hosts a Blackthorn concert and happening 
hour or OLAS holds a salsa dancing night in Backstage, La Salle 
students benefit fi-om the diversity that these multiculharal organizations

y\ cademic Honor Societies 

mt(pmi^ and (Qxcei/l/m 

Beyond the classroom, La Salle students involve themselves in a 
number of activities both social and academic. Many students who 
excelled within their majors are nominated for their particular majors 
honor society. These honor societies are part of nationwide chapters 
that promote involvement in the particular field and allow students to 
meet and befriend students with similar interests and abilities. 

Psi Chi is the national honor society in Psychology and has been 
active on campus for some time now. They work in conjunction with 
the Psychology Department in order to give students the opportunity 
to discuss pertinent issues in psychology and open doors for 
different research and volunteer experiences. Currently, Psi Chi is in 
the process of developing a volunteer program at Bancroft 
NeuroHealth in Cherry Hill. Students volunteer once a week at the 
facility and while assisting the patients are given the opportunity to 
gain experience in the field. Psi Chi co-president Kelly Poulson 
remarks, "Volunteerism and membership in an honor society are 
wonderftil ways to network and gain experience. It also can help a 
student decide what career course they would like to take and 

whether graduate school would be an option for them." In addition 
to volunteering, Psi Chi officers have run information sessions on 
graduate school, have aided in course registration for freshman 
majors, and are readily available to answer questions. 

Another honor society, Lambda Iota Tau, is dedicated to 
recognizing and promoting excellence in the study of literature. This 
year alone it has run several programs including poetry readings, 
guest speakers, and theater outings. John Bland, president of 
Lambda Iota Tau, stresses the benefits of membership in an honor 
society. "It's a great opportunity for students to get together and 
brainstorm and bounce their ideas off of . It's also refreshing to 
discuss literature with people who appreciate it as much as you do." 

Honor societies offer a plethora of opportunities for student 
involvement and enrichment. While these organizafions foster 
academic development, they also provide a service to the La Salle 
community by way of leadership and programming.

Itemative Breaks 

emum o/n 



Each year, during spring break, many college students flock to Ft. 
Lauderdale or Cancun to enjoy a relaxing vacation, while a handful of 
La Salle students opt to dedicate their time and energy to community 
service. La Salle's Office for University Ministry and Service, while 
offering a plethora of service opportunities during the school year, 
offers two alternative spring break programs, which give students the 
chance to participate in community service activities outside the 
Philadelphia area. 

The first of these alternative programs is Project Appalachia, which 
began in 1978. Every year since then. La Salle students have traveled 
to the Appalachian Mountain Region to help rebuild houses for low- 
income families. This year, Reggie Gauss, Keith Anderson and Candice 
Cleary coordinated Project Appalachia. 

On Sunday, March 11, 2001, approximately forty La Salle students 
packed into vans and journeyed for twelve hours en route to Harlan, 
Kentucky. This year was the eighth consecutive year that La Salle 
has worked in conjunction with the Christian Outreach to Appalachian 
Peoples in Harlan. 

During the week, students worked to rehabilitate old houses and 
build new houses for the destitute living in Harlan. From framing houses 
to siding and insulating, from dry-walling to landscaping, from plumbing 
to painting, every participant helps in his or her own distinctive way. 

The other alternative spring break program is known as Week of 
Hope. This program was started to make La Salle students aware of 
the social problems existing in metropolitan areas other than 
Philadelphia. In the past, students have traveled to Portland, Oregon, 
Washington D.C., and Boston, MA. 

Now in its fifth year, eight students, Meghann Keppard, Brenna 
McLaughlin (coordinator), Diane Phillips, Kelly Poulson, Kimberly 
O'Brien, David Odorisio, Diana Quattrone, and Rob Robesch trav- 
eled to Boston, MA. In Boston, the students worked with an organi- 
zation called Community Servings, which exists to provide nutritious 


meals to people living in the Boson area with AIDS and HIV. While in 
Boston, the participants worked in a kitchen, preparing over 650 meals 
per day. Tasks included peeling 500 lbs. of potatoes and peeling 90 
dozen hardboiled eggs. Once the meals were prepared and pack- 
aged, a few students helped deliver the meals while the others started 
preparing the next day's meal. 

Both Project Appalachia and Week of Hope rely on individual 
donations and money allocated to the groups through F.O.C.U.S. 
Therefore they are relatively inexpensive for the participants. Overall 
they provide La Salle students with an opportunity to serve the greater 
community while having fun with their classmates. Finally, they are 
memorable experiences, which leave a lasting impression on all

ommunity Development 

Yia^'atiiig and (QmI>owemm 

After the administrative restructuring at tiie end of the 2000 Spring 
semester was completed, the Center for Community Service and Learn- 
ing emerged as part of University Ministry and Sei"vice. With this new 
title, the twenty-one student groups that operated from this office were 
ready to set off for another year of programs. 
Despite some changes, UMS continued some time-honored traditions. 
After months of planning, Branch Out Day in the fall proved to be 
another success. Seven hundred students gathered on the quad and 
went out to serve the community surrounding La Salle and the greater 
Philadelphia area. Whether it was cleaning up the streets of Kensington, 
working at a nursing home or spending the day with kids, everyone 
involved enjoyed the day. The Holiday Drive was also successful this 
December. Members of the La Salle community bought hundreds of 
presents for children and families who were in need. 

In addition to one time volunteer opportunities such as Branch Out 
Day, the AIDS Walk, and the Hunger Walk, UMS offered students a 
number of ways they could volunteer their time on a weekly basis. 
Such programs as Neighborhood Tutoring, AIDS Outreach, Big Broth- 
ers/Big Sisters and Elder Care were just a few of the many that gave 
students the opportunity to continue to help others. 

There were four new programs added to UMS this year: Los Ninos, 
S.A.V.E., The Alliance, and San Miguel tutoring. Enthusiastic mem- 
bers of the La Salle student body started all the programs. Los Ninos 
will take a group of students to Tijuana, Mexico after classes end in 
May to help revitalize the community there. S.A.V.E. (Sexual Assault •■ 
and Violence Ends) is working to make La Salle more aware of sexual 
assault, rape and other issues affecting women. This group also plans 
Take Back the Night, which is a rally to protest violence against women. 
The Alliance also became a part of UMS this year, and focuses on 
promoting acceptance and tolerance of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and 
Transgender issues through educational programs and outreach. San 
Miguel tutoring sends students to San Miguel School in Camden, New 
Jersey to tutor and mentor its students. 

Overall, the year has been quite successful for UMS sei^vice pro- 
grams. According to Rebecca Messa, Coordinator of Community 
Service, the center is an ideal place for students who "see their col- 
lege experience as not limited to just educating and empowering them- 
selves, but looking beyond and seeing, understanding and serving the 
needs of the community they live in."

ssistant Academic Deans 

'((M&j(tin<3 and 


Every student has experienced some confbsion during registration 
or while selecting courses. When it seems like all hope is lost and 
students don't know where to turn, Mary Dorr, Susan Mudrick, James 
Sell, and Julie Valenti are there to save the day. They are the Assistant 
Deans from the Schools of Nursing, Business and Arts and Sciences. 
Often overlooked, the Assistant Deans provide advisement to students 
who don't know where to turn. These students could be undecided, 
confused about course selection or in need of reassurance. 

The Assistant Deans consider problem solving a large part of their 
jobs. Their goal is to help make it easier for students to get through 
the system. One aspect of this goal is listening. If students need 
someone to listen to them and help decide where to turn, the Assistant 
Deans are ready to listen and possibly refer them to other departments. 


James Sell, 
Assistant Dean of Arts and Sciencs 


Advisement is not the only role that the Assistant Deans play. While 
helping students decide which courses might be best to take, they are 
also involved in curriculum planning and various committees. 

Aside from advising students, Mary Dorr is involved in recruiting 
students for the School of Nursing. She plays an active role in evaluating 
transcripts and helping students adjust to campus and the nursing 

Susan Mudrick, a 20-year veteran at La Salle, is in the process of 
revising the curriculum of the School of Business. She feels it is her 
role to help students know "where they need to be." She also believes 
that consistency is a big part of her role as Assistant Dean. Once the 
School decides on a policy, she says that it is important to maintain thatj 
policy across the board. 

James Sell, an Assistant Dean in the School of Arts and Sciences, is 
playing an active role in the development of an auditing program that 
will make it easier for students to know what classes they have taken 
and where credits are counted. Having also helped to develop the 
Web registration program, he wants to make it easier for students to 
track their academic progress. 

Julie Valenti, also an Assistant Dean in the School of Arts and 
Sciences, is very much interested in the Study Abroad Program. 
Having participated in study abroad when she was an undergraduate, 
she feels that travel-study courses add to a student's college 
experience. While helping students here at La Salle's campus, she 
also assists those who are considering studying abroad. She believes 
that listening is the first thing she can do for the students and adds, 
"Our job is to help students get through the system." 

While it is not their favorite part of the job, the Assistant Deans are 
also responsible for academic probation and suspension. To help 
students who are experiencing academic difficulties, they will do 
anything from writing letters to them to refening them to counseling to 
setting up tutoring programs. Their main focus is to get the individual 
student back on track and help keep him or her there. 

It is student contact that motivates the Assistant Deans to help make 
the LaSallian experience as easy as possible. They know a great deal 
about La Salle's curriculum, registration process and the challenges 
that students face. Their year culminates in graduation and "thank 
you's" from students they have helped. Their greatest satisfaction 
indeed comes from the fact that they have helped students make it to 
that final day when they accept their diploma.

a Salle Ambassadors 



After a process that included nominations, applications, interviews 
and approval from the university's president, 23 students came to be 
known last August as La Salle Ambassadors. Established to serve as 
a bridge between the university and the alumni, this group came about 
at the suggestion of co-advisor Lori Clarke, Associate Director of the 
Annual Fund for University Advancement. Having been an 
ambassador as an undergraduate at Bloomsburg University, she 
approached Brother Michael with the idea because she "thought it 
was the perfect opportunity to allow La Salle students and alumni to 
come together and share in the LaSallian tradition." 
During their first year as a group, the Ambassadors have been very 
busy. Wearing their blue embroidered oxfords, khaki's and navy blazers, 
they have been present at E-commerce lecture receptions, pre -game 
receptions for basketball and football, special events such as Brother 
Gresh's Jubilee, the major Donor's Reception and the Aimual Charter 
Dinner at the Union League. The Ambassadors were a major help 
during Opening Weekend, Homecoming and Parents' Weekend during 
the fall and are helping at the Baccalaureate mass, commencement 
and reunion events in this spring. 

In addition to these activities, the Ambassadors have spent time 
serving Thanksgiving dinner in Philadelphia to the 35* Police District 
and Engine 54 Fire Department. Furthennore, they have made plans 
to work with the Belfield Recreation Center to put together a library 
program in their facility. 


Their devotion to La Salle's mission and to the promotion of the 
university has won them wide respect. On the Saturday of Parents' 
Weekend, University President, Brother Michael McGinniss 
commented, "All day long, I received comments on their poise, 
hospitality and excellent representation of La Salle University". Meg 
Kane, Ambassador treasurer, believes that others share similar 
sentiments. She explained that, "Alumni read the newsletters, but it's 
great to have the channel of communication set up where they can 
talk to the current students and find out some of the other exciting 
things that are happening at La Salle." 

La Salle Ambassadors may sound to some as if they have no time 
for play with attending receptions and traveling to university events on 
and off-campus. However, the group has members who are also 
involved in numerous student activities including student government, 
fraternities and sororities as well as political and cultural societies. 
Some also work as resident and community assistants. As a group 
dedicated to the promotion of La Salle, the Ambassadors have repre- 
sented the university's mission well throughout the year. With many 
students interested in joining next year, this group will continue to be 
successftil as they promote the values and traditions of St. John Bapfiste 
to La Salle's parents, alumni and friends.

I Jnion@max.cap 

manmina an 




During the summer 2000, Dr. Joe Cicala, the Dean of Students, 
wrote to all student leaders with a challenge: could La Salle students, 
with the help and support of the Division of Student Affairs, develop 
and sponsor two Friday or Saturday evening events in the Union each 
semester? If each student organization planned two events per 
semester, he explained, then the Union would be at "maximum capacity" 
each weekend. 

The idea for this program, appropriately named "union@max.cap," 
grew out of 1999 Homecoming events that took place one evening in 
the Union. During that time students were able to choose from events 
like swing dancing in the Ballroom, karaoke and jazz in Backstage, 
quiet games and refreshments in the Williamson Lounge, or a movie 
marathon in the Theater. Smdents could roam from one event to the 
next, and the Union came alive for that night. The challenge to recreate 
this atmosphere each and eve:y weekend provided an opportunity for 
students to view the Union as an entertainment and activity center, 
rather than as a site for isolated events on any given evening. 
Simultaneous events, sometimes incorporating a common theme, now 
can run simultaneously in the Union's five primary programming 
spaces: the Dan Rodden Theater, Backstage, the Williamson Lounge, 
the Dunleavy Room and the Union Ballroom. In addition, groups can 
reserve a number of secondary or smaller spaces: the Music Room 
and five smaller meeting rooms. 


To initiate this program, Chris Kazmierczak, Programming 
Coordinator, orchestrated the events for the first few weeks of the 
Fall Semester. Some organizations agreed to co-sponsor a number of 
these events, and a gradual awareness began building for 
union@max.cap. The events that were held in the fall ranged Irom a 
lip-sync singing contest co-sponsored by the La Salle Singers to a visit 
from MTV's Real World co-sponsored by SGA and RSA. 

As union@max.cap continues, it is likely that some minor changes 
will occur. Possibly, the program will focus on a few large events, 
rather than many small events, and student groups can coordinate 
effort. More events will also be offered during the week, so that all 
students have equal opportunity to be involved. Students will also be 
able to view upcoming events through La Salle's website. So far, the 
programs that were designed by smdents and for students have received 
a larger response that those programs that were pre-packaged for the 
smdent body. However, in an effort to involve all students in all aspects 
of the college experience, union@max.cap will continue to be the 
programming effort for the Division of Student Affairs. 

No one wants to hear - or say - "There's nothing to do here." By 
getting involved and working with the help of the Division of Student 
Affairs, students can continue to keep union@max.cap a vital and 
exciting program.

Team Unity Key 
to a Memorable 2000 Season 

The 2000 Field Hockey team came together in the sweltering days 
of August to begin the grueling pre-season workouts. Returning 
eight seniors to lead the team (Kelly Saxman, Annette Sciamanna, 
Jeannie Fitgerald -featured at right, Lauren Feracco, Meghann Peny, 
Carleena Smith, Alishia Faller, and Julie Hope) the Explorers also 
had the inexperience of eight freshmen. Despite this contrast in 
experience, the women managed to come together as a team during 
the season. Ending the season with a 3-14 overall record, the team 
missed an Atlantic Ten playoff berth by only one victory. 

In spite of the failure to make the post-season play-offs, the Ex- 
plorer women created memorable moments during the season. 
Overtimes were common for them. Three of their losses came in 
close overtime games against Bucknell, Monmouth and the Univer- 
sity of Rhode Island. Two exciting games that went to overtime 
resulted in wins. The first against Towson on Sept. 27 went to two 
overtimes with no score. The game finally ended in a penalty stroke 
off when Saxman scored to give the Explorers a 2- 1 win. The sec- 
ond OT win came in a hard fought game against cross-town rival St. 
Joe's, in which Saxman scored the game-winning goal in overtime 
to give La Salle a 1-0 victory. 

Saxman led the team with five goals this season and received First 
Team All-Atlantic- 1 honors for the third time in four years. Junior 
Jami Wilus also received First Team honors, her second in three 
years. Senior Julie Hope proved herself in the goalkeeper position 
and kept the opposing players on their toes. One of the leaders in 
the A- 10, she finished the season with a .835 save percentage. 

As the bitter cold days of late October drew to a close, the 2000 
Field Hockey team remembered the memories made and the friend- 
ships forged during the season. The games may be forgotten, the 
records set will eventually be broken, but the memories shared by 
the team will stay with each team member forever.

Disappointing Season does not 
Daunt Explorers Will to Succeed 

The La Salle Women's Volleyball team displayed a tremendous 
amount of spirit this season. The women entered the 2000 season 
with high expectations due to both its talented freshmen class as 
well as the experienced core of women returning to the team, in- 
cluding senior veterans Trina Allen, Lori Beth Ryan, and co-cap- 
tains Kelly Daniel and Kristen Darby {featured at right). While 
the women started off strong, they struggled throughout the Atlan- 
tic Ten schedule and ended with an overall record of 12-22. How- 
ever, their will to work hard and challenge even their toughest op- 
ponents never diminished. 

With the expertise of Head Coach Jason Klotkowski and Assis- 
tant Coach Joseph Yedziniak, the Lady Explorers dominated their 
first two tournaments at Drexel and Robert Morris, soundly de- 
feating rivals such as Drexel and Loyola. The team was also com- 
petitive at the Brown tournament, competing closely with St. Pe- 
ters, Jacksonville, and Brown. Unfortunately, the team's high hopes 
were stunted as a number of injuries plagued the Explorer women. 
Among the most disheartening was the loss of sophomore setter 
Molly Thatcher. The team then lapsed into a period of disappoint- 
ing losses and inconsistent play, but the Explorer spirit persevered. 
In an A- 10 Conference of powerhouses. La Salle was competitive 
with teams such as Temple, University of Massachusetts and 

The team was led by the offensive efforts of middle hitters Allen 
and freshman Robyn Wright and outside hitters Daniel and junior 
Kristin Russo. Darby, Ryan, and sophomore Caitlin Keefe served 
the team defensively. Freshmen Ashley Macchi and Bethany 
Pruetz, as well as sophomore Marta Lehman rounded out the team 
with their valuable play in multiple positions. 

From Aug. 1 2 when preseason began to the final game on Nov. 
12 against fellow A- 10 team Rhode Island, the Explorer women 
practiced hard, played hard and displayed the most important ele- 
ment of being an athlete at La Salle - spirit.

Team and Individual Performances 
Distinguisli Football Program 

The La Salle football team began its season with an impressive 14- 
shutout against St. Francis. Af^er losing the following week to 
Duquesne University in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference 
(MACC) opener, the men began to pick up a momentum that was 
almost impossible to stop. The team went on a five-game winning 
streak, beating lona, Siena, Catholic, Canisuis, and Shenandoah. This 
streak contributed to the Explorers' successful 7-4 winning season 
and the best record they have had since football was returned to La 
Salle in 1997. 

Eleven seniors including co-captains Joe DeFelice, Mike Moffa 
and Kevin Campbell as well as junior co-captain Chris Boyle led the 
team. The eleven senior men have truly been an integral part in the 
growth of the football program. Under the direction of fourth-year 
Head Coach Bill Manlove, these men have developed from a group 
that saw only one win their freshman year to an experienced core of 
players leading the successful 2000 team. 

One of these men, linebacker Kevin Campbell, set a school record 
for season tackles (114) and led the MACC in the same category. A 
key player in the Explorers' formidable defense, he was named to 
the MAAC All-Conference Team for the second year in a row. 
Campbell was also given the honor of being named to the All-Aca- 
demic Team for District II and the Second Academic All- American 
Team. Co-captains DeFelice and Moffa were also given All-Aca- 
demic Team honors for District II. 

Also receiving All-Conference Team honors was junior mnning 
back Brian Small, who rushed for 869 yards this season. Small, jun- 
ior Jeremy Crimmel, and sophomore Keyante Moore were huge 
contributors to the Explorers' offensive effort, getting a lot of help 
from senior quarterback Mike Bramowski {featured at right) and 
from a strong offensive line. Boyle, a leader on this solid line, was 
given Second Team All-Conference Honors. Also named to the 
Second Team were junior Brett Rothenburger and senior Rick 
Martinson, who was one of the leaders in the countiy for intercep- 

All 99 of the talented players on the roster came together to pro- 
duce a memorable season for La Salle. The strength of this 2000 
team came from the men's intensity, hard work, and will to win. The 
results of this strength have established the beginning of what will 
hopefiilly be a long winning tradition for the La Salle football pro-

Women s Crews Rediscover La Salle s Strong Rowing Tradition 

It has been said before that rowers' love for their sport is some- 
thing that is in their blood. This idea might explain why a handful of 
dedicated La Salle women wake up at 4:30 a.m. to practice in the 
bitter cold or spend their spring break on the Schuylkill River. . . and 
think nothing of it. 

During the fall 2000 season, this hard work and perseverance paid 
off for La Salle Women's Crew. Led by senior co-captain Joan 
King (featured below) and sophomore co-captain Carolynn Sheahan, 
the women started the season on a promising note at the Head of the 
Christina, where the Varsity Four picked up a gold medal, the Varsity 
Eight silver, and the Novice Four another silver. The Novice Four 
again medalled at the Head of the Occoquan in Virginia and at the 
Head of the Schuylkill, one of the largest races of the fall season. 
The pinnacle of the team's successful season came at the fall Atlan- 
tic Ten Championship at which the Varsity Four and Novice Eight 
boats each placed first. 

Under the direction of Head Coach Linda Heffeman, Assistant 
Coach Michelle Ciarlo, and Novice Coach Michelle Busza, the 
women's program has continued to build and expand. This year the 
Varsity Four boat was given the opportunity to row over winter break 
in Florida. This past December, the women also christened a new, 
top-of-the-line Millennium Eight boat, named after former La Salle 
coach Pat McCann. In accepting the honor, McCann said jokingly, 
"You can name the boat after me, just as long as you never lose!" 

Indeed, the women hope to keep that promise. The same Varsity 
Four boat that captured the silver medal in last year's spring A -.10 
Championship is ready to take the gold it lost to Temple in that race 
by only .9 of a second. Using their success in the fall as a spring- 
board, both the Varsity and Novice women looked to maintain their 
high levels of excellence in the 2001 spring sprint season.

Men s Crew 

Men's Crews Continue to Gain Respect witli Impressive Wins 

Fresh off a successful 1 999 -2000 campaign in wliich two boats 
narrowly missed Dad Vail medals (Varsity Lightweight 4+ and 
Varsity 2-), the La Salle Men's Crew entered the fall of 2000 with 
high hopes of emulating last year's perfonnance. Though three 
powerhouse lightweights were lost to graduation, the Crew none- 
theless returned with a strong core of dedicated rowers. Looking 
to avenge last year's disappointment at Vails, senior Ryan Humes 
and junior Paul Volosin were joined by sophomores Josh 
Schneiderman, Mike Mallich and Chris Monaco, who were eager 
to begin the quest for Dad Vail gold. Adding to the lineup were 
seniors Paul Read and Joe Leonard, returning after a one-year 
hiatus, as well as newcomer Cory Vilaplana, a grad student who 
had rowed at SUNY-Stoneybrook as an undergrad. 

The very first race of the season was the wintry cold Head of 
the Ohio Regatta in Pittsburgh. Fighting ocean-size waves and 
30-degree temperatures. La Salle placed second out of thirty-five 
in the Club Four (Jeatured below) event. However, due to the 
extreme conditions, the Lightweight Four was unable to compete 
as the races were cancelled in the afternoon. 

The highlight of the season came a few weeks later when La 

Salle raced in the world famous Head of the Charles Regatta 
in Boston - the largest rowing event in the world. Having been 
denied acceptance for many years. La Salle made good on its return 
trip to this illustrious race. Facing the world's best competition and 
an unfamiliar, winding course, the Crew finished a very respectable 
nineteenth out of sixty entrants in the Club Four event, crossing the 
line only 30 seconds away fi"om the top five. 

The fall season also saw very impressive finishes at the Head of 
the Schuylkill Regatta by both fours and a fourth place finish at the 
fall Atlandc Ten Regatta in the Varsity Eight. Capping off the sea- 
son were the sprint races: the Frostbite Regatta and the Bill Braxton 
Memorial Regatta. Again, though no medals were taken home, the 
La Salle boats raced extremely well, exhibiting great things to look 
forward to in the spring. 

For the first time, La Salle Crew took a winter training trip to 
Winter Haven, Fl. While rowing 2-3 times a day for an entire week 
in the Florida sun, the Crew refined its water skills in the middle of 
winter. A return to Philadelphia resulted in a rebirth of sorts as the 
team eagerly awaited the start of the sprint season. As spring ap- 
proached, everyone was tasting Dad Vail gold.

La Salle Women Produce a 

Record-Breaking 2000 Season 

The members of the La Salle Women's Soccer team spent their 
off-season training hard in anticipation of the 2000 season. With 21 
of 22 players returning from the 1999 squad, as well as the return of 
previously injured senior Tracey Spinelli and sophomore Liz Schmidt, 
the Explorers' chances of making the Atlantic Ten Conference play- 
offs were better than ever. 

The teams hopes and dreams were fueled by the early season 
defeats of two Big East powerhouses, Villanova and Seton Hall. 
These wins against regionally-ranked teams combined with an un- 
defeated record after their first three games gave the Explorers their 
first-ever Mid Atlantic regional ranking. With the scoring power of 
sophomore Amy Schneider and freshman Krista Lee, as well as the 
almost impenetrable defensive front consisting of senior Blair Hontz 
(featured at right), juniors Trish Gauss and Kaitlin Glass, sopho- 
more Dani Wilson and freshman Courtney White, a playoff birth 
seemed within reach. It was not unfil the final weekend of the sea- 
son when the women traveled to New England that these playoff 
dreams were crushed after heartbreaking losses to A- 10 competi- 
tors Rhode Island and Massachusetts. 

Although the team did not achieve its goals of making the A- 10 
playoffs, its season was nonetheless a resounding success. The 
women's 12-6 record was the first winning record in the history of 
the 15-year program. The 45 goals scored were the most in the 
program's history, and the 23 goals allowed were the fewest. Spinelli 
was named First Team All A- 10 Conference, and Hontz and 
Schneider earned Second Team honors. Lee was named to the All 
Rookie Team, and Coach Jeanine Calhoun was named the A- 10 
Coach of the Year. Despite losing eight seniors, Coach Calhoun 
looks toward next season with the hopes that the 2001 squad will 
confinue the tradition of success that the 2000 team has established.

Six Seniors Sav) Good-Bvje 

After a Frustrating Season 

Things always look brighter on the other side. This just might be 
what the head coach of the La Salle Men's Soccer team, Pat FaiTcll, 
has been running through his head ever since the horn sounded in the 
fmal game against Massachusetts. In a season that began with an 
optimistic 2-2 record, it almost seemed as if the 2000 squad might be 
headed in the right path. Yet things seemed to fizzle a bit as the 
Explorers went on a fmstrating cold streak the rest of the way, losing 
their last 1 games, and ending their season with a 2- 1 3 overall record 
(1-9 Atlantic Ten.) 

"We definitely had much higher expectations coming into the sea- 
son" said sophomore Dave Lynch, "yet we sort of fell into a slump 
that we could never dig ourselves out of We have a lot of guys 
coming back, so we can only get better from here." 

A team loaded with underclassmen (six freshmen, five sopho- 
mores), La Salle was a relatively young team. However, the men 
did receive a lot of help from their younger players, especially from 
sophomore Stephen Kohut, who led the team with eight points (three 
goals, two assists.) In their 3-0 victory over Drexel on Sept. 9, the 
Explorers were guided by the power of two freshmen, Anthony 
Franchini and Tom Kenny, who was a member of the 2000 A- 1 All- 
Conference All-Rookie team. Coming off the bench, Franchini scored 
two goals, while Kenny netted another. Also posting a solid year 
was junior Josh Shoppe (featured at right), the goalkeeper. Starting 
and playing in all 15 games, Shoppe had 86 saves, one shutout, and 
ended the season with a .699 save percentage. 

The team said its final good-byes and thank yous to six seniors - 
Shawn Lafferty, Patrick O' Neil, Dave Rajakovich, Alex Roberti, 
Nick Zegestrovsky and Graham Walker. Walker, a backer, was voted 
to the 2000 Philadelphia Soccer 7 All-Star team. The Explorers will 
have to make up for the loss of these talented seniors; however, the 
return of so many underclassmen to the 2001 version of La Salle 
Men's Soccer will help. Indeed, next year's squad looks to bring 
plenty of victories to McCarthy stadium.

Women Work Hard 
to Capture Impressive rinislies 

The 2000 Women's Cross Countiy team started the season with 
several top returnees, including grad student Toni Ann Razzi, se- 
niors Kelly Cassidy and Maura Calahan, junior Solamiya Login and 
sophomore Leyna Williams. Some key rookies were freshman Jenna 
Darcy, sophomore Ndidi Obichere and senior Melissa MacPherson 
(featured at right). 

Always training and racing with intensity and focus, the success 
of the women's team began with some strong races on a course at 
Princeton in late September. Two weeks later Razzi, Williams and 
Cassidy helped the women pick up a third place finish when they 
ran their familiar home course, Belmont Plateau. The women faced 
tough competition on their next course, Paul Short, and finished a 
disappointing seventh; however, they carried their competitive drive 
to Michigan and ran a hard race at the Wolverine Interregional. 
Although a few nationally ranked teams were present, the women 
ran solid races and worked together to finish in fourth place overall. 

The Atlantic Ten Conference Championship meet was held at the 
end of October. The women, toughing out the chill late-fall weather, 
finished third at the Championships, right behind St. Joe's and the 
University of Massachusetts. The women had outstanding perfor- 
mances. Many, including Razzi, Williams, Obichere, Login and 
Cassidy, clocked in their best individual season records in the 5K. 
The race was extremely close, and four of the women barely missed 
being named to the All-Conference team. The Explorers then ended 
their season finishing eighth out of twenty-five teams in the District 
II Championship at Penn State, where Razzi finished just one posi- 
tion away from making the All-District team.

Tlie 2000 Men Continue to Display Outstanding Performances 

feiie ^uwnA 

As a result of a very successful 1999 campaign wherein the La 
Salle Men's Cross Counti7 team captured the Atlantic Ten Cham- 
pionship, as well as displayed a strong finish in the NCAA Mid- 
Atlantic Regional Championship, the men on the 2000 team had 
high expectations, including repeating as conference champions and 
perfomiing well in the NCAA competition. 

The 2000 team (featured below) was primarily led by senior Chris 
Cummins, juniors Tim McAteer and Colin Benner, and sophomore 
Todd Witzleben. This foursome obtained All-Conference honors. 
In addition, they all placed in the top ten at the A- 10 Championship 
meet. Furthennore, the varsity team received solid contributions 
from junior Kyle Noms and his brother, freshman Patrick, as well 
as sophomore mnners Mike Pelosi and Chris Carvelli. Throughout 
the season several Explorers, such as sophomore Ryan Wiley, had 
strong perfonnances in the meets. In his first Cross Country race 
Wiley placed first for La Salle at Lafayette in early September. Ad- 
ditionally, junior Chris Sinclair was the men's top runner at the US 
Naval Academy Invite in Annapolis. In mid-season La Salle trav- 
eled to the University of Michigan for an elite interregional 
competition. The meet featured some of the finest programs in the 
nation. The men fared well, beating teams that would eventually 
compete in the NCAA finals. 

In the 2000 A- 1 Championships, hosted by Duquesne Univer- 
sity, the men fell just shy of one of the season's foremost 
objectives, which was to defend the team's championship hon- 
ors. The Explorers finished a respectable second place; right 
behind hometown rival St. Joe's. Despite the failure to defend 
the A- 10 title, several La Salle nanners had excellent perfor- 
mances. The top runners were Cummins, McAteer and Benner - 
all finished less than 6 seconds apart. 

The season concluded at the District II NCAA Championship, 
hosted by Perm State. There the men bounced back from the loss 
at the A- 10 Championship by beating all teams within that con- 
ference as well as besting many top programs from the Big East, 
Big Ten, and Patriot Conferences. This meet saw senior P.J. 
Gallagher, the defending A- 10 10,000 meter champion on the 
track, return to the team's top five. After overcoming a serious 
knee injury, Gallagher successfially improved with every meet to 
recapture his winning fomi. 

The fiature looks extraordinarily bright for the La Salle men, as 
all but two runners retum from this season's team. With strong 
fi'eshmen contributions all season and numerous upperclassmen 
returning the Explorers should achieve all their goals.

Team Battles for A-10 Glonj 

The struggles of the disappointing 12-17 1999-2000 season were 
all but forgotten as the Explorers began their 2000-2001 season with 
a late summer trip to Europe. The women went 2-1 on the trip, 
which lasted for nine days. The most impressive thing about the trip 
was the improvement of post players Melissa Hindenlang, senior, 
and Beth Hudak, junior. 

Jen Zenszer (featured at right) and Laura Newhard were the 
senior co-captains of this year's squad. Despite a broken left hand 
that kept her out for seven games, Zenszer still led the team in steals 
and three-point percentage last season. This season, Zenszer be- 
came the sixteenth Explorer to reach the 1 ,000-point milestone in La 
Salle's 77-66 victory over Kent State. 

"Jen is the blood and guts of our team, said Head Coach Jim Miller. 
"She's the epitome of what a leader should be and makes our team 
so much better when she's out on the floor." 

Senior Laura Newhard also faced her own injuries. The power 
forward missed three games last year due to a nagging shoulder 
injury. Despite the shoulder, she was a force on the court, and posted 
career highs in two different categories. 

Zenszer and Newhard led a strong 2000-2001 squad full of expe- 
rienced return players. Senior Shannon McDade, who led the team 
last season in scoring, rebounding, and blocked shots, also reached 
the 1 ,000-point milestone early in the season during a loss to Villanova. 
Senior Marjorie Rlioads, with her accurate middle range jumper, also 
achieved the 1,000 point mark in the Explorers final regular season 
home game. 

Hudak, and junior Suzanne Keilty have also been big returning 
players for the team this year Keilty is one of the Explorers' best 
three-point threats, hitting 50 last season. In addition, last year's 
freshmen, Bonnie Randa, Beth Mays, and Chrissie Walker, have all 
improved their games and seem more confident in their individual 
roles this season. 

The Explorers started the season with victories over Rider and 
Drexel before suffering their first loss - to Villanova. After suffer- 
ing tough losses to Penn as well as to ranked opponents Boston 
College and Penn State, La Salle won 6 of its next 9 games. As 
hosts, the team won the La Salle Invitational. The women were also 
victorious against Atlantic Ten opponents Duquesne, St. Bonaventure, 
Rhode Island and Massachusetts. 

The women finished out the regular season with several competi- 
tive A- 10 contests. While their experience and talent contributed to 
an exciting season, their dreams of post-season success in the A- 10 
Tournament were not realized.

Men Capture Exciting Victories 

to tlie Atlantic Ten Tourna^ 

With the powerhouse trio of Donnie Carr, Rasual Butler and Vic- 
tor Thomas together for one last season, last year's team had very 
high expectations. Unfortunately, Carr was weakened by pneumo- 
nia and missed five games. The Explorer's 6-1 record at the start of 
the season was tainted by an 8-game losing stretch. The team ended 
up in the Atlantic Ten Tournament, and lost a tough game to St. Joe's 
in the first round. 

This season, however, the Explorers focused on getting back to 
the A- 10 Tournament so they could avenge their first round loss 
from last year. Leading the team in this quest have been senior co- 
captains Victor Thomas and James Jordan, junior Julian Blanks 
(featured at right) and junior Rasual Butler. Making up for the loss 
of Carr's 19.7 points per game was a difficult task, but the Explorers 
stepped up to the challenge. Butler, who was nominated for the John 
Wooden Award - which is awarded at the end of each college bas- 
ketball season to the best player in the country, leads the A- 10 in 
scoring, averaging 21.4 points per game. He scored 38 points in a 
double overtime loss to Rhode Island on Jan. 27*. Thomas has also 
been a big point contributor, ranking among the top ten in the A- 10 
with 19.5 points per game. 

At the halfway point of the 2000-2001 campaign, the Explorers 
were 7-10. They had a big victory at the Palestra, winning 61-59 
over Penn in a match-up in which Thomas scored a game high 27 
points and hit a big lay-up with :30 left to seal the victory. The team's 
first A- 10 victory came in an 82-69 win over Duquesne, in which 
Butler scored 28 points to lead the Explorers. The men also beat 
Drexel, Northwestern, Central Connecticut State, UNC-Wilmington 
and Lafayette. 

The leadership of the four seniors, Thomas, Jordan, Gan-ett Bragg 
and Anwar Wilson, was needed in the final stretch of the season. 
Stepping up to the challenge, these seniors helped the Explorers win 
their biggest game of the year - an exciting victory over conference 
powerhouse and cross-town rival St. Joe's, a team that later ad- 
vanced to the NCAA Tournament. Heading into the A- 1 Tournament 
with confidence, the Explorers easily advanced past the first round, 
but lost a close second round rematch game against St. Joe's.

Small Women s Squad 

is Big on Team Unity 

The 2000-2001 Women's Swim team has truly learned the mean- 
ing of the word team. With so few women on the roster, everybody 
has stepped up their performance levels, filled in spots when needed, 
and kept a positive attitude through everything. Because of the small 
squad, the motto of the team has been, "We may be small, but we 
give it our all!" With Melissa MacPherson being the only returning 
senior, the Explorers, led by captain Mariana Root, a junior, relied on 
a strong foundation of underclasswomen. 

One of these women that stepped up to the season's challenges 
was junior diver Melanie Coots (featured at right). Coots, leading a 
small diving team, proved to be an integral part of the women's suc- 
cess. At one of the early meets of the year. Coots crushed the 
school record in the 3-meter diving event, and her accomplishments 
continued throughout the season. 

The opening portion of the season has traditionally provided the 
toughest test for the women's team, and this year was no exception. 
The team opened its season with a loss to Towson University; how- 
ever, the Explorers' hard work finally paid off at the La Salle Invita- 
tional, which was one of the biggest meets for the women during the 
fall semester. 

After this positive ending to the fall, the women headed down to 
Florida over winter break for a fun-filled training trip. Hoping to es- 
cape the below-fi-eezing temperatures in Philadelphia, the Explorers 
were greeted in Cocoa, PL with frost warnings and temperatures in 
the 30's. The weather, however, did not stop the women from train- 
ing. They worked hard in their new surroundings and returned home 
ready to race. 

The La Salle women opened the spring semester at the Rhode 
Island Invitational, where they went I-l with a win against URI and 
a loss against UMass, both Atlantic Ten Conference teams. The 
focus during the latter half of the meet schedule was geared toward 
the A- 10 Championships. The Championships, held in Buffalo, NY 
at the end of February, was the culmination of a long year of tough, 
focused training.

Tougli Atlantic Ten Confer- 

For the past 138 years, the La Salle Men's Swimming and Diving 
team has brought many championships to the Kirk Natatorium thr'ough 
a continuously developmg tradition of success and victory. Each 
season a select number of men come together to represent and can^ 
on this tradition, and 2000-2001 was no different. Under the direc- 
tion of second-year Head Swim Coach Matt Nunnally and 15 -year 
Head Diving Coach Chris Bergere, the Explorer swimmers and divers 
made waves in another rewarding season of meets, races, and dives. 

Determined to replicate their successflil 1999-2000 winning cam- 
paign, the men began this year's season on Oct. 21 against Towson 
University. However, victory does not come easily within the com- 
petitive Atlantic Ten Conference, and the La Salle men, while show- 
casing outstanding individual perfomiances, were not able to pro- 
duce the same results they saw last season. An unfoitimate injury to 
key senior Jason Streefkerk left the Explorer men under the senior 
leadership of co-captains Michael McGinnis and Mitchell Zackowski. 
Together, the duo exemplified individual excellence in the pool and 
proudly led the team throughout the season. 

Underclassmen Adam Barclay (featured at right) and James 
Davidson, both sophomore divers, also stood out as consistent point 
winners for the team. The dominating diving pair had top finishes 
throughout the season, and often took home both first and second 

Although the team was not able to generate another winning sea- 
son, this was not a result of lack of hard work and dedication. Every 
day the athletes subjected themselves to early mornings, tough work- 
outs, and other mental and physical challenges, in addition to main- 
taining a standard of academic excellence. In short, the athletes in 
the 2000-2001 season demonstrated the perseverance and intensity 
that has won respect for the La Salle swimming and diving program.

Powerliouse Olfense Prompts 
Atlantic Ten Plavjolf Goals 

After completing a solid third season in the Atlantic Ten Confer- 
ence, the Lacrosse team anticipated a winning record in 2001. The 
addition of several established teams to the 2000 schedule gave the 
women a challenge that they readily accepted, and which conse- 
quently helped them prepare for the upcoming 2001 season. In an 
effort to accelerate their advancement within the A- 10, Head Coach 
Jenn Harpel called on the helping hands of 2000 James Madison 
University graduate Julie Weiss to serve as assistant coach. 

Working hard in the off-season, the women began the 2001 season 
on March 9 with the ultimate goal of competing in the A-10 playoffs. 
This goal seemed within reach, considering the amount of veteran 
players returning to the roster 

Harpel lost only one senior, goalie Lindsey Block, from the 2000 
team. Co-captains Mary Quinlan and Jeanie Fitzgerald, both seniors, 
led an experienced squad into the season. Quinlan, along with junior 
Jami Wilus (featured at right), combined for 96 goals last season 
and made a formidable scoring team this season. Last year Wilus 
was named the Offensive MVP for the team and held first place in 
scoring for the A-10. She holds national statistics for her offensive 
talents, ranking second in goals and third in points scored. To round 
out the attack, seniors Christine McDonald and Colleen Keenan pro- 
vided additional offensive threats on the field. 

Fitzgerald led a dominating defensive effort consisting of seniors 
Heather Wilson, Cindy Curri, and Julie Leusner. Rounding out the 
defensive group were junior Erin Hogan and freshman Liann Dicto, 
both goalies. 

With so many talented women returning, the season opener against 
the University of Pennsylvania will have signaled the start of a very 
successful season and hopefully an equally successful post-season.

Teams Look to Improve 

under Ne^w Head Coacli 

The La Salle University Men and Women's Tennis teams endured 
a challenging fall 2000 season. The introduction of new head coach 
Bill Baker sparked several changes for both teams. Baker made his 
first alteration by re-focusing the teams' energy on the mental tough- 
ness of the game, rather than concentrating solely on technique and 
strategy. Although the Explorers experienced a rough beginning, the 
leadership of Baker has taken both teams to a new level of competi- 

The men encountered difficulty in establishing experience on the 
team. Many players had little experience in comparison to the com- 
petition. This factor initially worked against the athletes, as they suf- 
fered five losses in their six game schedule. Their lone victory oc- 
curred during the final match of the season, against Rider University, 
marking the beginning of a promising future for the Explorers. De- 
spite the team's inability to produce a winning season, the men gener- 
ated a level of improvement that created a solid base for their spring 
'01 season. 

Captain Ryan GarguUo, a junior, is credited with providing the 
leadership and encouragement that proved to be a vital asset to the 
men. Gargullo is the number one seed on the team and undoubtedly 
has the most experience. For this reason, rookie players looked to 
Gargullo for guidance. Number three seed, junior Phil Telan, stated 
that Gargullo leads by example and serves as a confidence builder for 
the team. With the influence of Baker and Gargullo, the team antici- 
pated being competitive in the Atlanfic Ten Conference, especially 
against rival St. Joe's. 

The women also faced a trying season, finishing with a 1-6 record. 
Leading the Explorers were co-captains senior Debbie Blissick and 
junior Kate Ericson. The loss of two key players presented some 
uncertainty for the women's team; however, the return of four start- 
ing athletes gave the women substantial support for the spring '01 
season. Number two seed (singles), soophomore Kristen Hess and 
number five seed (singles), senior Lindsey Belcher (featured at right) 
provided the guidance and experience freshmen newcomers Megan 
Donahue and Karen Toner needed to play Division I collegiate ten- 

Both teams are still ft-esh competition to their opponents; how- 
ever, with upcoming talents at the top of the lineups, both La Salle 
teams are serving up successftil futures.

Tlie 2001 Team 
Concentrates on Improvement 

The term imih' best characterizes the La Salle softball team. The 
bonds between the women are strong, fonned from countless hours 
of practice, long road trips, and frostbitten weather. Strong team 
values and supporting friendships sei-ved as a consolation for the 
Explorers through a trying 2000 season. 

For the 2001 squad, improvement has become the focus for the 
season. After anticipating a winning season in 2000, the Explorers 
ended the year with a fmstrating 9-46 record. Part of the difficulties 
of last season was because the team was plagued with injuries. 
However, even though many of the women returned healthy, this 
year's squad hasn't taken anything for granted. The women fo- 
cused on establishing - and working towards - both team and 
individual goals. 

To help with these goals, third-year Head Coach Carla Camino 
hired two new assistant coaches. Candace Clark, a St. Joe's gradu- 
ate, focused on catcher and infield defense; and Kristi Dennis, a 
Kutztown University graduate, focused on the pitching staff, which 
included seniors Talia Bilella and Missy Rourke (featured at right) 
and freshmen Ali Wood and Jaci Higgs. 

The team lost only two starters and returned seven, including jun- 
ior Allison Beier, who had the best batting average (.352) on the 
team last season and the tenth best in the Atlantic Ten Conference. 
These experienced women, combined with the addition of six fresh- 
men to the lineup, took to the field on Mar. 3 to open up the season. 
A week later the team traveled to Kissimmee, Florida for a spring 
break training trip, and then the women headed back to Philly to 
complete the 40-plus games and the two tournaments of their regu- 
lar season schedule.

Strong Core of Returning 

Players Helps 2001 

Two years ago the Explorer baseball team found itself just one win 
shy of the NCAA playoffs, but what a difference a year makes as 
the Explorers struggled through a disappointing 2000 campaign. In 
2001, however, optimism and hope returned to the Hank De Vincent 
Field as a promising young freshmen class and a solid nucleus of 
seniors took the field. With senior co-captains Mike Cavallaro (fea- 
tured at right) and Jon Palumbo, senior pitchers Kevin Manero, 
Paul Blasetti, and Alex Roberti, as well as the big bats of seniors 
Mike Fuchs and Mike Bell, veteran leadership has certainly been a 
key element of this year's squad. Junior captains James Kelly (OF) 
and Mike Kelly (C) were counted on for their leadership both on and 
off the field as each looked for 2001 to be a breakout year. 
■ Head Coach Larry Conti entered his fourth year with the team, 
looking to return his squad to the form that led him to receive Adan- 
tic Ten Coach of the Year honors in 1999. The Explorer team has 
expected to be a contender in the A- 1 Conference this year, with all 
eyes set on Disney World, the site of the 2001 A- 10 playoffs. 

Last year's leading hitter, Palumbo, was joined in the infield by 
teammate Cavallaro who led the pitching staff in wins in 2000 and 
has looked to contribute both on the mound and on the plate in 200 1 . 
Fuchs and Bell returned to the heart of the order for the Explorers 
this year as they looked to round out their successful college careers 
as key run producers for the team. Last year's leaders in appear- 
ances on the mound, Manero and Blasetti, along with the southpaw 
stylings of conference starter Roberti, anchored a pitching staff that 
includes a very promising freshmen class. 

The 2001 season finds several players in the hunt for a place on 
the Explorers' career leaders board. Cavallaro is just five wins shy 
of tying the school record; Fuchs looks to find a place among the top 
ten in batting average, RBI, and hits; and Bell should find a place 
among the top ten career hit leaders. 

The 2001 Explorers' fifty plus regular season schedule of games 
began with spring training in Boca Raton, FL and ended at home in 
an A- 10 weekend series against the Dayton Flyers.

Solid Indoor Season Paves tlie 

Way for a Successful Spring 

The women's indoor track season kicked off at Princeton Univer- 
sity in early December. Top performers were sophomores Ndidi 
Obichere (featured at right), who placed first in the mile, and Anita 
Brooks, who picked up fourth place in the 1000-meter. The next 
meet was held almost a month later at Penn State, where Obichere 
won the 800-meter, and Brooks captured fourth in the 500-meter. 
The meet ended with a victory in the 4 x 800-meter relay, run by 
Brooks, Obichere, junior Solamiya Login, and sophomore Leyna 
Williams. The relay team not only took first in the meet, but they 
also qualified for the Eastern Conference Atlantic Championships 
(EC AC), meefing both the indoor and outdoor standards. The fol- 
lowing weekend the women ran at the Naval Academy, where Brooks 
placed second in the 400-meter and Obichere took fourth in the mile. 
Brooks, Obichere,fi-eshman Jamie Keenan, and sophomore Jessica 
McHale captured second in the 4 x 400-meter relay, while Will- 
iams, senior Maura Calahan, fi-eshmen Jenna Darcy and Margaret 
Betancourt finished a strong third in the distance medley. The women 
finished their season with competitive meets at Penn State (the 
National Open) and Fordham University as well as the Atlantic Ten 
Conference meet where they expected to place in the top five. The 
final meet was the EC AC, where a few of the women hoped to place 
and establish new personal records. 

The women anticipated the arrival of the outdoor season as they 
looked to be competitive at the Raleigh Relays in North Carolina 
and the Quaker Invitational at the University of Pennsylvania. Grad 
student Toni Ann Razzi's return to the spring competition was a 
driving force in leading the women to Penn Relays and putting up 
tough competition in both the Conference meet and the ECAC. Fi- 
nally, Razzi looked to compete in the NCAA Track and Field 
Championship, as she did last spring season. At the same time, 
Obichere kept her goals set on traveling with Razzi to this meet and 
in qualifying for the Junior National Track and Field meet as she 
did last spring. 

The 2001 track and field squad began the season with so many 
talented, hard-working women that the spring looked to be filled 
with great individual and team accomplishments.

Deptk and Talent Help Men 

After a successful 2000 indoor and outdoor track season, the Men's 
Track team had high aspirations for the 2001 season. Although post- 
ing somewhat disappointing performances in both indoor and out- 
door Atlantic Ten Championships in 2000, those that qualified for 
other major post season races proved that there would be much to 
come in the following year. 

Lining up for the start of the 2001 indoor and outdoor seasons 
were a varied group of men. After a successful recruiting year, the 
team's perennially successful mid-distance and distance programs 
were newly bolstered with fresh pairs of legs. Balancing out the 
team is the largest sprint and field events squad in more recent years. 
The Explorers hoped to boast these new strengths at the A- 10 Con- 
ference Championships, held at the Univ. of Rhode Island. With its 
depth and talent, this La Salle team wanted to bnng home an Indoor 
Championship after having last won one in 1997. 

After only a few meets into the indoor season, many displayed that 
they have what it takes to keep La Salle's reputation in the Division 
I collegiate spotlight. Fifth year senior Kevin Myles qualified early 
on for the IC4A Championships, for both the mile and the 3000- 
meter races. Joining him were sophomores Chris Carvelli in the mile 
and Todd Witzleben in the 3000-meter, as well as the 4 x 800-meter 
relay team and the distance medley relay team. Also strong was 
senior Omar Knight, a yearly qualifier for the IC4A meet, as well as 
sophomores Ryan Wiley and Tony Giammarco. Together, Knight, 
Wiley and Giammarco balanced out the 800-meter races. The quali- 
fiers for the IC4A competed with athletes from elite programs 
spanning from Maine to the Carolinas. In addition, La Salle hoped to 
send competitors to the NCAA Indoor Track Championships, hosted 
by the University of Arkansas. 

Returning for the outdoor season were defending 10,000-meter 
champion RJ. Gallagher and runner-up Greg Blaszko, both seniors. 
Senior Chris Cummins returned to the track after having a success- 
firl cross country campaign and taking the winter season off. In the 
sprints, junior Ken Hopkins led the way for the 400-meter race and 
senior Marc Pietranton braced the sprint hurdle squad. Sophomore 
Ayes Ehikjoya led a young 100 and 200-meter sprint crew. Also 
fresh from a stellar Cross country season were juniors Tim McAteer 
(featured at right), an IC4A qualifier in the 3000-meter steeple- 
chase, and Collin Benner, who looked to become an IC4A qualifier 
in the 1500-meters. Heading into the outdoor season, the team 
hoped to see solid performances at the N.C. State Relays, as well as 
at the Penn Relays in late April. As a team, the Explorers wanted to 
duplicate their Indoor Track goals, as well as post top placings in the 
IC4A Championships.

There are millions of companies that strive to give their employees 
the ver)' best. And according to FORTUNE Magazine, only 100 who 
actually do. We're proud to say that Enterprise Rent-A-Car is one of 
them. And even prouder that our employees are the reason why. 

You could say that Fortune discovered what we've known all along. 
When you create a work environment that encourages employees to 

share in the decision-making process, take on all the responsibility 
they can handle, and enjoy promotion by merit rather than seniority, 
you give them every opportunity to be their best. 

So use your head. Put Enterprise Rent-A-Car at the top of your list, 
and realize your most ambitious goals just as we've realized our own. 

We are an equal 
opportunity employe] 

Use Your Head. Join Enterprise.

ncit€^}(o^m f/ie er/(tor 

During my time at LaSalle I al- 
ways felt that there was some- 
thing more I should be doing, 
some kind of gift of service I 
should give to the place where I 
have grown and developed and 
have been essentially defined. 
Explorer 2001 is my gift and the 
gift of all those who lent a hand 
through word or deed to give you 
what you are looking at perhaps 
for the first time or perhaps for 
the ten-millionth time to regain 
the nostalgia of what was. 

When given the opportunity to 
be this year's Editor-in-Chief, I 
must admit I was both scared and 
eager. What would someone who 
had not worked on a yearbook 
since high school be able to ac- 
complish? Though there were 
countless bumps in what seemed 
to be an endless road, February 
came and I had a book I was 
proud to be associated with. De- 
spite the struggles and sleepless 
nights, birthing this yearbook has 
been both beneficial and valuable. 

But in no way could I have done 
this alone. First and foremost, I 
would like to thank Emmy Kachel, 
our publishing representative who 
made priceless contributions and 
devoted hours from her already 
too tight schedule to accomodate 
us to the fullest. Whether it was 
answering a simple question or 
helping with a layout Emmy was 

I would also like to thank our 
faculty advisor Dr. Dolores Lehr 
for her patience with a brand new 
editor and staff and the aeons of 
time she devoted to proofing and 
editing. Dr. Lehr, you are both 
dedicated and conscientious and 
have played an immense role in 
this publication. 

Next, I would like to congratu- 
late the entire editorial staff on all 
of their hard work and efforts 
throughout this entire process. 
Meghann, you were absolutely
