Grounded in a Love for His Students: 
Broihzr Arthur Bangs 

A man well-known for his 
wonderful ability to listen to 

Neubauer worked for 10 years 
alongside Brother Art in the 
Counseling Center. 

Brother Art's career at La 
Salle began in 1949, graduating 
from the College Maxima Cum 
Laude with a B.A. in the Classics in 
1953 and in 1954 with an M.A. in 
Theology. Since then, he has 
continued his education, receiving 
an M.A. in the Classics from the 

students and to guide them, beloved University of Pittsburgh in 1959, an 

Brother Arthur Bangs is the 
recipient of the 2009 Explorer 
Yearbook Dedication. 

Fondly known as "Brother 
Art", this man embodies many of 
the qualities that illustrate what it 
truly means to be "Lasallian". He 
remembers the names of all he 
meets, frequently stopping to say 

M.A. and Ph.D. in Counseling from 
the Catholic University of America, 
as well as being licensed in 
Psychology in 1973. 

Teaching at three schools, 
Central Catholic in Pittsburgh, 
Bishop O'Connell in Arlington, VA 
and St. John's College High School 
in Washington, Brother Art became 

Switzerland, of which La Salle was 
an integral member. 

In 2008, Brother Art retired 
from the Counseling Center, after 
touching the lives of hundreds of 
students. "Brother Art touches the 
heart of anyone he interacts with anc 
brings out the best in people, even 
the most troubled of students. He 
leaves all students and anyone he 
works with feeling empowered," said 

Brother Art continues touching the 
lives of students to this day, whether 
you meet him in Education class or 
simply walking across the campus. 
And you can bet, he will always give 
you a minute or 10 of his time.

Grounded through 


"Grounded through change" marks the 
2008-2009 school year at La Salle.As the campus 
grows, expands and changes it is important to 
remember that La Salle is still simply La Salle. The 
traditions and values that make this university 
unique are still omnipresent. 

However, every year, day and week st this 
school is different. No class, year or student is ever 
repetitous of the previous. 

The Opening section of the yearbook 
represents the 2008-2009 school year. Within these 
pages marks a weekly event to spread justice, a 
historical presidential election and a long-awaited city 

It is these occurences along with many others 
that make 2009 "grounded through change." 



Remembering A 

^> Beloved professor and director of the Honors Program, John Grady, 

, passed away on Sunday, July 13, 2008. Grady took over as director of 

. r — t the Honors Program at La Salle in 1969 and worked hard for 39 years to 
enable the program to reach a high level of prestige and national 

The love that Grady had for his students was limitless. He was easily 
accessible to his students, even when at home. He braved bad weather, 
walking to campus on occasion, to be available for students. Grady 
personally worked with every student in the Honors Program, helping 
them achieve their goals and welcoming them to La Salle. 

Before taking the position as director of the Honors Program, Grady first 
came to La Salle in 1960. He was offered a temporary position in the Economics 
department by Dr. Joseph Flubacher. That "temporary" position lasted for over 40 

In those 40 years, Grady accomplished much at La Salle. He saw the Honors 
Program gain esteem among liberal arts schools. He received the Lindback 
Teaching Award in 1972 and was founding Chair of the Honors Assessment and 
Evaluation Committee of the National Collegiate Honors Council. In 2003, the 
Honors Program developed a scholarship named after him. 

Perhaps the La Salle Honors Program has lost a valuable advisor and friend. 
However, all can be assured that the legacy John Grady left will be lived by the 
hundreds of students he mentored. Jen McShane '10 


Changes in the 

Construction continued into the 2008-2009 school year. First, and 
perhaps most noticeable, was the dismantling and renovating of Holroyd 
Hall. This Science Center was being completed upgraded throughout the 
year, adding more classrooms, better labs and "greening" the building. 

Other changes to the campus landscape included work done in 
West Campus, the Germantown hospital. The entire nursing program was ^ 


moved to West Campus, as were the science classrooms, temporarily, as 


Holroyd was renovated. 

With this advent of classes moving across the campus, it became 
necessary for West Campus to somehow connect itself to the main campus. This 
was achieved in two ways. First, a pedestrian walkway was constructed, crossing 
Wister Street and allowing students a safe route over to West Campus. Second, 
once students crossed over the walkway, they entered the lobby of West Campus, 
which includes a glass atrium, security desk and lounge for students to use. 

The Shoppes at La Salle, constructed in the former Good Shepherd parking 
lot, continued throughout the year resulting in the opening of various shops close 
to the campus for students to access. These shops included: Dunkin' Donuts, Rite 
Aid, Beneficial Bank, Gamestop among others. 

Finally, the University purchased and opened a new pizza place, Explorers 
Den. This venue opened in June and offers students an alternative place to eat, as 
it accepts gold card. Jen McShane,'10 




Working Towards 
Social Equality 

Social Justice Week 2008, October 5-12, was full of events that 

£h occurred campus-wide to promote awareness about the injustices within 
• ^H 

global society. Social justice is defined as "the distribution of the benefits 

* -v and the hardships in society, together with the way they are allocated." 

1 "^ Social Justice Week at La Salle was designed to educate students 

£h about the injustices that occur within our own society, as well as 

^ international societies. The week was put together by senior Religion major, 

t~ Chris McNabb in collaboration with UMAS and the Project on Social 

rn Justice. 

The Honor's Convocation on Sunday, October 5 kicked off Social 

Justice Week. Throughout the course of the next five days, white paper lilies 

began to appear on the quad. The lilies represented the 392 murders that took 

place in the city of Philadelphia in the year 2007. 

Big events that took place during the week included an AIDS discussion led 

by staff and faculty members Dr. Richard Mshomba, Professor Huntly Collins, Dr. 

William Price, Dr. Mark Ratkus, Professor Mary Wilby, and Dr. Jordan Copeland. 

Requiem for Philadelphia also took place during Social Justice Week, which 

was a remembrance of those lost to violence in the city. The presentation was a 

multi-media endeavor that included performances by Neo-African Drums n' Dance. 

The week was a success, spreading the Christian Brothers' teaching of social 

justice to the entire La Salle community, and maybe, making a difference.

Celebrating World 

"The 0-2 pitch, swing and a miss! Struck him out! The Philadelphia <-h 
Phillies are 2008 World Champions of baseball!" • t-H 

Those were the words of beloved sports announcer, Harry Kalas on ,p ^ 
Wednesday, October 28. These words set a city on fire, ending a 28-year & 
world title drought for the Philadelphia Phillies. 

The 2008 season started out with high expectations for the Phillies, 

after they made it to the playoffs the previous year. Everyone was looking 

forward to the "Phightins" to come out strong. 

And the Phillies did not disappoint their fans. May 30, 2008 was 
the turning point of the season, when the Phillies triumphed over the Florida 

Marlins to capture first place in the National League East. From that date on, the 

Philllies were in a season long battle to stay on top, alternately dueling the New 

York Mets or the Florida Marlins. And what a battle it was. 

As the season drew to a close, it became apparent that the battle would 
really fall between the Mets and the Phillies. Could the Phils hold their National 
League East title? 

After some nail biting games, the Philllies were able to triumph over the 
Mets, earning them a spot in the playoffs. After winning against the Brewers and 
the Dodgers in the playoffs, the Phils made it to the World Series as National 
League Champions. They took on the American League Champions, the Tampa 
Bay Rays to win the World Series, finally giving fans a parade down Broad Street.

Excersing the 
Right to Vote 




As the primaries for the 2008 Election began winding down, it 
became clear that November 4, 2008 would be a historical day. Would the 
race line be erased, with the election of Barack Obama? Or would feminism 
get some assistance with Hillary Clinton taking the Oval Office? That 
decision was in the hands of the nation. 

As the long primary season continued, Hillary Clinton eventually 

dropped out of the race, leaving Barack Obama as the Democratic 

candidate. In the coming months, Obama would square off with Republican 

candidate John McCain in debates, commercials and press time. 

La Salle students in particular became immersed in the election for 
many reasons. For example, La Salle students worked for either campaign and 

planned events on campus to encourage voter participation. 

Highlights from La Salle's participation in the election process include 
Political Science professor Mary-Ellen Balchunis' broadcast from the Democratic 
National Convention, Rock the Vote events and the visit to campus by Mayor Ed 
Rendell (D). 

Ren dell's visit to La Salle brought an all star lineup of visitors encouraging 
Lasallians to vote, including Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins, actress Debra 
Messing, Mayor Michael Nutter and actress Morgan Fairchild. 

All the election events on culminated on November 4, when La Salle students 
flooded the voting polls and made their voices heard in a historical election.

The Words of an 
Inspiring Speaker 

Students, faculty and staff packed the Tom Gola Arena on Monday, m H 
March 23 during La Salle Heritage Week to listen to the inspiring words 
of Sr. Helen Prejean. 

Sr. Helen Prejean is the author of the bestselling book, Dead Man 
Walking, which later became a movie. Her book recounts the harrowing 
true story of Sr. Prejean's journey and battle into the trials of the death 
penalty. "I watched a man being killed, and it changed my life," said Sr. 
Prejean to the La Salle community. 

The Louisiana-born nun first became an activist involved in the battle to end 
the death penalty when she reached out to death row inmate, Patrick Sonnier. 
Through a series of letters and visits, Sr. Helen began to see the lack of justice in 
the death penalty system and sought to help Sonnier. Despite her hard work, 
Sonnier was executed by the State but it encouraged Sr. Prejean to continue 
working to abolish the death penalty. 

During her speech to the La Salle community, Sr. Prejean addressed all 
present about the horrors and injustices of the death penalty. She cited reasons for 
abolishing the death penalty, convincing many in the audience to oppose it and 
support her petition. "Young people have the power to push the death penalty out 
of this nation," said Sr. Prejean to La Salle students.

Education Week 





Flags dotted the Quad, across from the Union, during the week of 
November 17-22, symbolizing International Education Week 

"The Multicultural and International Center was able to collaborate 
with various departments, student organizations and offices to create a 
dynamic event," said International Education Coordinator for International 
Students, Kate Cook. "We tried to incorporate various cultures found 
both at La Salle and world-wide." 

The Multicultural and International Center worked with Cross 
Cultural Association, Food Services, Late Night La Salle, the Student 
Programming Center, Community Development, the La Salle Art 
Museum and the Career Service Center, among many others, to create events that 
would educate the La Salle community about international cultures. 

"Taste of Culture" was held at Treetops that week, allowing students to 
sample cuisine from other cultures. Late Night La Salle put together a "Lasallian 
World Cup", allowing students to engage in a soccer match held in the tradition of 
the World Cup. There were also presentations throughout the week on 
International Careers, Japanese art prints and "South of the Border". Hungry 
students tasted international cuisine all week at events like the International Coffee 
Hour and American Thanksgiving, wrapping up a great week.

Farewell, Dr. 
Joseph Cicala 





On Wednesday, February 18, Dean of Students, Dr. Joseph Cicala, said 
farewell to the La Salle community, as he prepared to take the position as 
Vice President for University Life and Student Learning Services at 
Alvernia University. 

Cicala served as Dean of Students at La Salle for ten years, during 
which he launched numerous successful programs to help the students of 
this University, leaving behind big shoes to fill. Leading Student Affairs, 
he oversaw the start of Day ONE for incoming students, expanded the 
Opening Weekend Activities, commenced the King's Dream Celebration 
for student leaders, created the famous Affirmation, designed the Shield 

of Lasallian Leadership Awards and Late Night La Salle, among many other 


Perhaps what will most be remembered about Dr. Cicala during the time he 

spent as Dean of Students, will be his involvement within the La Salle community. 

A familiar face at many events, Dr. Cicala was always sighted supporting student 

groups, educational departments and athletic teams. He celebrated student 

achievements and always stopped to say "hello" when passing students in the halls 

of the Student Union. 

While Dr. Cicala will be sorely missed as a great supporter of La Salle, the 

student body eagerly welcomes the new Vice President of Student Affairs.

walls. Whether a science class, or writing class 
or art class, students at La Salle gain the skills

Each class is aimed at preparing students 
and teaching skills, yet no two classes are the

professor are never completely similar from 
one period to the next. 

Through our changing world and 
worldviews, it can be scary to think about 
confronting "the real world." Yet the faculty

hard to ensure that all students are prepared.

Arts amid 


The School of Arts and Sciences is comprised of 25 
undergraduate programs that students can study and it makes up over 
60% of the undergraduate enrollment. From Chemistry to Philosophy, 
the School of Arts and Sciences has many different fields students can 
study. The most popular fields of study within the School of Arts and 
Sciences are: Education, Psychology and Communication. 

This year, the science programs within the School of Arts and 
Sciences were relocated temporarily to West Campus, in the Benilde 
Tower as Holroyd was renovated throughout the year. 
^^^^^^■■■■■■■■■■■■^H These programs then 

should move over into the new 
"green" science center with 
updated labs in August 2009. 


Most majors focus on one primary area of academic research. 
American Studies is the exception. Covering a vast amount of rich 
subjects, including American history, art, music and religion - even 
American food and drink - this interdisciplinary major allows students to 
gain a full understanding of American culture 

According to the Director of American Studies, Dr. Francis Ryan, 
students have begun to further their comprehension of Americana 
through the recently included course Transnationalism, which focuses on 
"looking at America from the outside," answering the question of how 
America is viewed from other cultures. Furthermore, a program called 
the Multicultural Roundtable has continued its tradition of bringing 
students from abroad to Philadelphia. 

Graduates often embrace careers in law, journalism and 
advertising, finding their time spent in the American Studies invaluable.

When I first discovered I'd need a fine arts requirement to obtain 
my degree, I nearly considered dropping out. I've never been one for 
learning the complexities of foreign languages and I can't draw to save 
my life. That's why I determined to take two Art History classes to 
complete my requirement. 

Spanning from the beginnings of art in caves to today's modern 
methods of using digital art to create new and interesting things, these 
classes originally seemed simply a method of graduating without having 
to draw anything or learn German. To my surprise, I fell in love with the 
classes. I learned to respect art for what it is and was, regardless of 
whatever era it generated from. 

Art History majors experience a great deal more, in courses 

ranging from American Architecture, the Italian Renaissance, Figure 

Sculpting, Women and Art and Print Making. Art History majors are also 

fortunate enough to study within a tremendous area for art: Philadelphia.

The Biology department prepares students for a wide variety of 
futures outside of La Salle. Some students apply to medical school 
while others pursue careers in pharmaceuticals, genetics, zoology, 
microbiology, neurology among many others. The Biology department 
prides itself on giving students an extensive overview of biology, 
allowing students to be prepared for any of these fields. 

Students in the Biology major or minor take classes composed 
of laboratory work to give students experience working with 
equipment. Led by professors well practiced within the various fields 
and knowledge of Biology, the labs occupy much of a student's time 
and education. 

Majors in Biology also take a variety of classes in physics, 
chemistry and mathematics, creating a well rounded student ready to 
tackle any career outside of La Salle.

Chemistry students are a rarity. But we tend to like it that way. In! 
such an intensive major, you need a core group of people that will truly 
understand that it is a the big if the settings on an instrument are a tenth 
off or that it is so fascinating when a crystal is blue instead of red. 

Over the years we've been surrounded by a group of professors 
who are so enthusiastic they could make even the most die-hard English 
major wish they were taking a lab. However, for the most part, we 
happily keep them all to ourselves. Because over the years, our little 
group has turned in to a tiny, close-knit, albeit dysfunctional, family. Call 
us science nerds if you want - but I bet we had more fun in class than 
most. Our labs are filled with plenty of strange substances in test tubes, 
but also with laughter - and we would not have it any other way.

I knew La Salle's Communication Department was where I 
wanted to be from the first email exchange with Department Chair, Dr. 
Lynne Texter. As an overwhelmed high school senior, I had been 
emailing various communication departments at different colleges, trying 
to narrow down my long list of possible matches. 

La Salle stuck out from the beginning. Dr. Texter always 
answered my replies quickly and signed her emails "Lynne." Dr. Texter 
made me feel at home before I even stepped foot on campus. It was 
from that moment that I knew La Salle was different - in a good way. 

The department is not pretentious or stuffy. Instead, professors 
are friendly, caring and dedicated. That welcoming feeling I experienced 
three years ago has only grown, and I am reminded everyday that La 
Salle is where I am meant to succeed.

The Criminal Justice major prepares students studying it for law 
school, as well as careers in law enforcement, court tasks, corrections, 
victim services as well as many other fields. Classes achieve this by 
teaching students about the causes of delinquent and criminal behaviors 
as well as the problems of the juvenile and criminal justice systems. 

To complete a Criminal Justice major, students take 10 courses 
within the Criminal Justice program. These courses include: Social 
Problems and Social Justice, Criminal Law, Policing: Theory and 
Dynamics, Institutional and Community Corrections, Violence in Society, 
Crimes of the Powerful, among many other courses. 

Not only do students take courses in Criminal Justice, but they are 
also required to take courses in sociology, political science and 
psychology to help them understand the complexities of Criminal Justice.

La Salle University's ever-expanding Digital Arts and Multimedia 
Design (D'Art) major provides students a hands-on, creative learning 
experience. Headed by director Dr. Conrad Gleber, D'Art gives 
Lasallians a chance to explore different forms of digital communication 
and design. Students use a number of programs, interfaces and design 
principles to create a host of digital media. Plus, the three unique tracks 
within the D'Art major offer students opportunities to fine tune their 
skills and choose the right career path. 

Students in the D'Art program experience in-class instruction in an 
up-to-date lab. Most D'Art students also complete an internship, as well 
as work on projects involving local organizations and real-life clients. 
The D'Art program gives these tight-knit students the freedom to 
explore their creativity while preparing them for life after La Salle.

in this country, as well as internationally. Studying applications like 
supply and demand, inflation, market equilibrium, students are able to 
make sense of financial issues both on a personal level and social. 

Studying Economics prepares students for a number of jobs after 
graduation, including jobs within the business, law, research, finances and 
teaching fields. 

While classes within the Economics department focus much on 
making good economic and financial decisions, professors also strive to 
teach students how to think and make good decisions in all aspects of 
life. The hope is that by teaching students to always think about the 
effects of decisions then they will attribute that same knowledge to the 
financial world.

Being an education major at La Salle University is a rewarding 
experience. Education majors can receive certification in either 
Elementary and Special Education, or in Secondary Education. In 
addition, each student chooses to take additional courses in a specialty 
area. Students can choose from American Studies - the most popular - 
Math, Social Studies, English, Science or even Communication. 

There are plenty of options for those looking for a career in 
Education. The Education program has amazing professors who support 
each student whether with help in coursework or with writing lesson 
plans. The faculty and staff of La Salle's education department are 
always there with a smile on their faces and a helping hand.

People need writers. They need graduates who have the analytical 
and communication skills necessary for the modern job market. An 
English degree may not train a student to specialize in a specific field, but 
it will certainly prepare its graduates to utilize their talents sharpened 
within English classes. In the end, this could prove entirely more 

Three separate tracks are available to the English major, depending 
on their field of interest. The first track, Liberal Arts, provides students 
with the diagnostic and writing skills necessary to succeed in graduate or 
law school.. 

There is the Writing track, which trains students in the fine art of 
creative writing, the technical field of business writing, and the complex 
ability to edit or publish. The final track, English-Education, combines 
English with those seeking to double major in Secondary Education.

Studying Environmental Science prepares students within that 
major for careers in the environmental industry or for a graduate school 
path. The Environmental Science major allows students to focus on 
three different areas: Environmental Chemistry, Environmental Biology 
and Environmental Geology. 

Classes making up the major are from the Geology, Math, 
Chemistry and Biology disciplines. Combined, these classes make up 
nine of the required classes needed to graduate with a major in 
Environmental Science. However, to complete the major, students also 
need to complete a concentration in either Chemistry, Geology or 

Students leaving La Salle with a degree in this major have been 

quite successful. Many have held jobs within the United States 

government, while other students have been highly successful working 

within various aspects of the oil industry.

One University, many tongues. In a world where globalization is 
a fact, a second language is a great asset. Luckily, La Salle offers 
majors and minors in the Classic languages: Italian, French, Spanish, 
Russian, and German. Besides these, La Salle also offers minor in 

Learning another language will surely place one ahead of the 
game. In today's global economy many employers would rather hire an 
employee who knows languages other than English. Learning a 
second or third language gives students a wider range of opportunities. 
And for this reason, many students in different disciplines have a 
minor in a language or even dual major with a foreign language. The 
possibilities of learning a foreign languge are endless.

The geology department, although small, is full of quality. Many 
of these graduates go on to successful positions in state and federal 
agencies and in private industry. 

Geology as a major reaches across various sciences, from 
chemistry, physics and biology - it isn't all just rocks! In addition to 
quality faculty, students use sophisticated machinery and instruments, 
such as a scanning electron microscope, an x-ray diffraction machine, 
lapidary saws, ground-penetrating radar, and polarizing microscopes. 

Another attractive feature in studying geology is the field work. 
Students regularly take field trips to unique localities to observe and 
study firsthand environmental and geological features.

Dedicated and enthusiastic about the past, the History department 
works tirelessly to bring the past into the present. From publishing an 
award-winning journal twice a year, the Histories, to sponsoring 
numerous historical field trips for students, like November's successful 
trip to Fort Mifflin, the History Department strives to remind the 
University not to forget the past. 

In addition, the History department has also undertaken a new 
venture this year, sponsoring a competition for "The Leo Award, which 
awards students writing remarkable essays related to Philadelphia's 
history. Talk about keeping history alive! 

The La Salle History department honors our past, so we can look 
forward to our future.

Technological advances today have changed the way we as a 
society approach and solve problems. This calls for a different type of 
scientist. La Salle University is home to an exciting and innovative 
program in which science, business, and technology are interwoven. 

The objective of the Integrated Science, Business, and Technology 
Program (ISBT) is to produce a science generalist, one who is 
technologically competent, with a strong ethical foundation and with the 
business knowledge necessary to solve real- world problems. 
Tomorrow's leaders will be those who understand how science, 
technology, and business all interact.

The department of Mathematics and Computer Science offers 
students plenty of career choices once graduating, from teaching math, 
banking, IT and computer programming. 

Mathematics deals with numbers and problem solving, looking 
deeply at the various forms of math: trigonometry, calculus, algebra, 
geometry, among others. Majoring in Mathematics teaches students how 
to deal with numbers but also how solve problems and think things 
through on many levels. 

Computer Science looks at all aspects of computers, whether 
technical or programs. Students learn how to properly utilize computer 
programs to use in many forms of business. They also learn what makes 
up a computer, outside of the programs. 

Either field of study will get students where they want to be and 
help students think "outside the box."

Last year the Political Science Department restored its formerly 
annual Alumni Reception and revitalized it by inviting graduating Political 
Science seniors to attend. Political Science alumni who came to reconnec 
with old friends also got the opportunity to meet with current students, 
share their experiences of the dreaded "real world" and give advice to the 
next generation of La Salle Political Science alumni. 

The event was such a success that the department decided to do it 
again, so on April 3rd graduating seniors networked with more than 80 
Political Science alumni from a wide variety of professions over 
sandwiches, wine, and beer. "For seniors who attend, this is a great 
opportunity to network with alums from your department about jobs, 
careers, and future plans," said Dr. Michael Dillon, Chair of the Political 
Science Department.

What is a Psychology student? What does it take to be a 
Psychology major? The Psychology student must be able to multi-task, 
think of the bigger picture and be open to new opportunities. A 
psychology student is interested in international issues and is aware of 
the basic needs of people. A psychology major requires an inquisitive 
personality and a drive to better the lives of those around you. A 
student studying psychology plays to people's curious nature. They 
want to learn about the physical brain, its functions and how the brain 
plays a role in a being's personality. A psychology major is interested in 
the scientific study of human and animal behavior relating to the human 
mind and mental states. 

The students studying psychology at La Salle University are an 
eclectic mix of all of these traits, influencing persons or groups to better

With all the different types of religion in the world, it can be a 
difficult major for students to study. There is so much history, tradition 
and creed involved in religions from all over the world. 

Religion majors at La Salle study more than simply the traditions 
of the Catholic faith. There are classes that study all other Christian 
faiths, as well as courses devoted to Middle Eastern faiths. However, 
many classes also look at issues that are not just black and white, like 
ethics and moral issues. These classes include: Catholicism in the 
Modern Worl; Buddhism, Hinduism, and Religions of the Far East; 
Judaism and Islam; Contemporary Moral Problems; and Biomedical 

La Salle offers students more then just a basic understanding about 
religions. By taking some of these classes, students also learn about the 
differences in faith and tolerance for others.

The Social Work program at La Salle has worked hard over the 
years to instill excellence in the students within the program. The faculty 
of this esteemed program often have hands-on skills within the field that 
enable them to guide students and offer real-life experiences. 

One teacher in particular from the Social Work program, Dr. 
Bonni Zetick, works hard with the rest of her peers to encourage 
students and help students in all ways possible. For her contributions to 
the La Salle community, Dr. Zetick was awarded the Faculty 
Distinguished Service Award on August 21, 2008 at Opening 

Besides being e beloved member of the Social Work faculty, Dr. 

Zetick has also worked outside the University to advocate for social 

change, equality for retarded and menatal illness citizensm, and 

substance abuse programs. She is deeply involved in commmunity 

service, both at La Salle and the city of Philadelphia.

This year, the Department of Sociology, Social Work and Criminal 
Justice welcomed a new chair to the halls of Olney. Hiring, Dr. Charles 
A. Gallagher, the department has set itself on the path to success. Dr. 
Gallagher's level of scholarship is only matched by his skills as a 
professor, teacher and mentor. Dr. Gallagher taught at Georgia State 
University before finding his way to La Salle. He is not new to La Salle, 
however. Dr. Gallagher taught courses at La Salle while he was a 
graduate student at Temple. 

When I first met Dr. Gallagher, I was immediately struck by his 
broad knowledge and dedication to teaching. One of his assignments for 
his Sociology 150 course is a "Media Black Out" Week where students 
are asked to refrain from using any kinds of media, except for homework 
purposes, to show students see how much time they waste. 

Dr. Gallagher's presence in the department has brought with it a 
resurrection of the Sociology Club and a dedication to scholarship in the 
field of Sociology.

Co-Qp Program 

The School of Business offers a unique program, the Business 
Scholars Co-Op Program, that allows students to work within their 
chosen career field for 10 to 12 months These students are 
hardworking, often balancing their co-op experiences with full time 
class schedules. 

When Business Scholars Co-Op graduates from the class of 2008 
graduated, 100% of these students already had jobs, according to 
Penny Grobb, Director of the Business Scholars Co-op Program. 

This year, fighting tough economic conditions, the class of 2009 

Business Scholars Co-Op still 
came out on top, with 98% of 
these students having jobs. The 
successes are limitless, all 
thanks to the Business Scholars 
Co-Op Program, and will 
continue for future students. 

HIGHLIGHTS from the 
2009 Year: 

* Brian Concannon, '10, 
as part of the Business 
Scholar Co-Op Program, 
worked with both, the 
Philadelphia Zoo and 
The Vanguard Group. 

* Danielle Signorelli, '09, 
as part of the Business 
Scholars Co-Op 
Program, worked with 
both the Philadelphia 
Eagles and 
Price waterhouseCoopers . 

It is important for all Accounting majors to understand exactly 
how businesses work so that they can help companies make important 
financial decisions. 

The Accounting program has five areas of study that students 
can focus on to become successful in the business world: cost 
management, information systems, auditing, taxation and multinational 
relation. Many faculty member have experience in both the business 
world, as well as the financial market that can help students move 
forward in the Accounting program. 

After focusing on these areas of study, students leave La Salle to 
become: business executives, bankers, financial planners, consultants 
and tax planners. The program has also helped students start careers in 
non profit corporations, government and medical.

Finance students have many reasons for choosing their field of 
study: there are a plethora of jobs available within the broad "Finance" 
world and finding a job after college should be easy. 

The faculty of the Finance department lead students through the 
complicated numbers and rules that allow them to grasp a firm 
knowledge of financial situations and be successful after college. These 
dedicated members of the University community offer guidance and 
consultations to their students to help them succeed in a competitive 
financial field. 

Faculty members also maintain connections to many businesses 
and companies across the nations. These relationships allow students to 
obtain experience before graduation, with internships, as well as jobs 
after graduation.

Management Information Systems classes look at computers and 
programs to help people run a business and better utilize their time, 
resources and energies to work better. This enables people, businesses 
and computer programs to be more productive. 

Students studying Management Information Systems (MIS) are 
prepared for a number of jobs after graduation. According to the MIS 
website, an individual in this field of study can work as a "systems 
analyst, database administrator, business analyst, data analyst, 
e-Commerce applications analyst, computer systems auditor, 
information systems manager, computer and software marketing 
manager, computer consultant, network administrator, and off-shore 
contract managers." 

As computers and technology marches forward and changes so 

will this field continue to change. Because of this students will always 

have job opportunities.

When people think of marketing, they usually think of advertising. 
But marketing is more than creating Superbowl commercials. What's 
really interesting about the marketing major at La Salle is the study of the 
consumer. Everything we do - selling, product or service design, 
advertising, promotion, placement and pricing analysis - is a function of 
what the consumer wants or needs. It's amazing to learn how much 
professional marketers know about us, the purchaser. 

Marketing majors conduct real- world marketing research projects 
to understand how big brands go from goal setting to execution. We 
study how everything from the amount we pay, to the places we buy 
have already been predicted by companies months before our purchases. 
We also gain first-hand experience in our careers. 

With a core business knowledge behind us and an experiential 

education to draw from, La Salle's marketing majors will continue to 

have a high success rate in the real world, and a lot of fun doing it.

The School of Nursing and Health Sciences has continued to 
grow over the past year, making its new home in the St. Benilde 
Tower, formerly Germantown Hospital. As the School of Nursing and 
Health Sciences students become more comfortable in their new home, 
they get the chance to work within a medical environment, offering 
hands-on experiences. 

Important to students studying within the School of Nursing and 
Health Sciences is the clinical work they do. Students from each 
program within the School of Nursing and Health Sciences are required 

to do some type of clinical work 
to graduate to achieve 
in-the-field practice. 

Recently added to the 
School is the program of Health 
Studies, in which students can 
now receive a degree. 

2009 Year: 

* The first student-run 
Nursing forum was held 
in March, where 
graduating Nursing 
students could meet with 
representatives from 
local hospitals and 
medical facilities. 

* Speech-Language 
Hearing Science major, 
Joan Lyall, '10, was 
accepted as an intern at 
the Rusk Institute of 
Rehabilitation Medicine. 


The School of Nursing recently added Health Studies as a major 
students can study. To achieve a degree in Health Studies, students take 
a wide varieity of classes to prepare them for fields within areas of health 
and community. 

Classes that Health Studies majors take include: Plagues and 
Epidemics, Health Communication, Stress and Health, Women's Health 
Concerns and Urban Health: Families and Children in Jeopardy. Besides 
these Health Studies classes and many others, students also take a 
variety of Nursing, Nutrition and Speech-Language-Hearing Science 
classes, creating well-rounded students to achieve success in any health

Subjectively speaking, I personally could not imagine myself doing 
anything else but Nursing. For most Nursing students, they expect 
something different than what they get. When you become a Nursing 
major as a freshman, you do not know what you will encounter. You are 
not really ready for the fact that Nursing school is also a journey inside 
yourself, a chance to learn about your own strengths, weaknesses, fears, 
likes, and dislikes. You learn the stuff that makes you tick and you learn 
just how patient you can really be if put your mind to it. 

One of the hardest parts for me is the emotional aspect. It is 
absolute torture to see a patient in such incredible physical or emotional 
pain and know that there is only so much you can do to help them. 
However, sometimes you say just the right thing to a difficult patient andi 
they start responding positively. Melissa Pompeo '10|

Nutrition majors study the make up of food and how it reacts with 
the human body. This involves Nutrition majors to need a combination of 
knowledge about the human body, as well as the chemical and nutritional 
make ups of different types of foods. Because of this, students studying 
Nutrition also take a variety of chemistry, anatomy and biology classes. 

While Nutrition classes look at the effects of foods on the human 
body, they also look at food management, preparing students for a job in 
food management for businesses and health care. The work in these 
classes includes projects like designing nutritional food plans for people 
with illnesses, children and families on budgets. 

Nutrition majors graduate with the skills needed to succeed in 
many fields, including public health, government, education, food 
research, pharmaceuticals, food companies, restaurants and hospitals.

The Speech-Language-Hearing classes teach students within this 
major how to deal and assist people suffering with various types of 
communication problems. These communication problems are often 
either hearing or language cognition issues. 

Not only do students learn the knowledge that is needed to assist 
people living with these problems but they also get clinical experience, 
giving them hands-on experience within the field. Professors are always 
available to lead and guide students, having working experience. 

At La Salle the Speech-Language-Hearing program is accredited 
by the Council on Academic Accreditation in Audiology and 
Speech-Language-Hearing Pathology of the American 
Speech-Language-Hearing Association .

creates "Student Life". Students sponsor trips, 
events during free time and LateNight La Salic 
events on the weekends. These students are the 
commitment behind "Student Life" for all

A Sharing of Culiu 

The windy weather on October 2nd, 2008 
provided the optimum condition for the aroma of 
empanadas, sweet potatoes, and beef jerky to float 
around campus. Echoes of drums bounced around 
the quad, alerting students to an event going on. 
200 students followed their senses and came upon 
the 7th Annual World Cultures Fair. Hosted by the 
Cross Cultural Association and sponsored by the 
Student Programming Center, Multicultural & 
International Center, and La Salle multicultural 
organizations (A- ASIA, AASL, CEES, Italian Club, 
LHSA, OLAS, and Phi Beta Sigma). The event 
celebrated the diverse cultures on campus. 

Many of the multicultural organizations 
brought tasty dishes to the event. From the 
steaming dim sum brought by A- ASIA, to the 
chocolates and snacks brought by CEES and the 
Italian Club, it would be safe to say that the student 
body thoroughly enjoyed the tastes from around the 
world. There were times when Justin Bettis, the 
president of the African American Student League, 
could have lost a finger while handing out sweet 
potato pie from his table. Aside from the food, 
dozens of students found their way to the South 
Asian Student Association's table and got intricate 
designs made out of lentil on their hands. This 
form of art is called henna, which is usually adorned 
on special occasions. The International Chess Club 
brought their many versions of chess from around 
the world and students sat down and learned the 
many ways to defeat their opponents. The slick 
choreography of the STEP Team and rhythmic 
beats of the Neo African Drums N' Dance were the 
final pieces to the fair.

Homecoming traditions: 
New and Old 

Rainy weather didn't dampen this year's 
Homecoming celebration. Many Lasallians helped 
make this year's weekend a huge success. 

It all kicked off with a campus-wide BBQ on 
Friday evening. Hot dogs, burgers, and chicken 
were grilled by student leaders in RSA, SGA, IFSC, 
and Late Night La Salle student workers. A large 
amount of students, faculty, and staff stopped by 
throughout the evening to enjoy a free meal. 

Saturday brought athletic events all around 
campus. The morning started early with a 
children's clinic hosted by the Women's Soccer 
team. The Men's and Women's Basketball teams 
held open practices for alumni, friends, and family. 
The Women's Rugby team hosted Bryn Mawr in a 
league match and came out on top with a score of 
15-5. The Men's Lacrosse team then took the field 
and continued the winning spree against Delaware 
Valley College, 20-2. IFSC also hosted a charitable 
athletic event of their own: powder puff football. 

Tradition continued inside the Alumni Tent 
and at RSA's Carnifall. The Alumni Tent attracted 
alumni of all ages and classes, while Carnifall 
provided a great way to get away from the cold, 
rainy weather. Not only were there food, prizes, and 
a magician, but the Homecoming King and Queen 
were announced at Carnifall. Sean Hand and Stacey 
Engster took home the crown of King and Queen, 
with Doug Phelan, Chris McNabb, Margaret Purack, 
and Anna Thomasson as their court. 

It may have rained all weekend, but this year's 
Homecoming Weekend continued to shine!

A late Night Hai>> 

Many members of the La Salle University 
community have often wondered whether the 
campus was haunted. On Friday, October 31, 
proof of something supernatural manifested itself in 
the Union Building. Earsplitting screams, crimson 
blood, and severed appendages filled the air as 
people were chased from a horrific scene in the Dan 
Rodden Theater. Zombies, mad scientists, and evil 
clowns were found lying claim to the theater and 
green room, treating all who entered as prey. The 
source of the frightening commotion could be 
traced to the Third Annual Haunted House. Led 
by members from The Masque, Resident Student 
Association, WEXP Radio, and Late Night La Salle, 
Halloween 2008 at La Salle University was 
definitely more trick than treat. 

Members from each of the organizations 
helped in the planning, advertising, and 
presentation of the Haunted House. In addition, 
these students created the sets and props for the 
event. Actors also sat for as many as 2 to 3 hours 
getting makeup done to look the part of a 
frightening creature. Students were transformed 
into werewolves, clowns, dead zombies and other 
creatures torn straight from their nightmares. The 
actors then took their positions as students were 
led, drug, or chased through the house. 

This year's Haunted House maintained the 
success of previous houses providing 125 La Salle 
students with a Halloween thrill. The event drew 
crowds of students dressed in their Halloween 
costumes. Whether dressed as Snow White and 
her Seven Dwarves, Smurfs, or Where's Waldo, not 
a student was spared from scare. 

Yearbook Staff 

A Home for All 

Beneath College Hall lies one of the most homey 
places on campus — the Campus Ministry Office 
and De La Salle Chapel. It is this welcoming 
environment that Noel Koenke calls home. Koenke 
graduated from Loyola College in Maryland, was a 
Campus Ministry intern for four years, a high 
school teacher and a flight attendant. Since filling 
the two year vacancy as Campus Minister, she has 
headed up Evensong, a weekly prayer night 
featuring a student reflection; she directs the choir/ 
liturgical and is building the retreat program by 
instituting a ski retreat and Kairos 2 College. 
Koenke's mission is simple, "I want to implement 
programs for all students, especially those that have 
not yet been reached, which I believe is one of the 
goals of a Lasallian school. I also want to help 
make spirituality personal, exciting, and an 
everyday opportunity for students. College is one 
of the best opportunities the Church has, to make a 
good and lasting impression on the faith lives of 
young adults." So far, so good. Says Koenke, "I 
love my job and I have a lot of hopes. Being here, 
thus far, I'm glad to have begun these programs but 
I could not have done it without Father Jim [Dever] 
or Brother Bob [Kinzler]. They have been very 
welcoming and supportive." Senior Chris McNabb 
enjoys her presence and what she brings to the 
table. "I think Noel's experience has equipped her 
with a great number of resources. In addition, she 
provides energy and passion; she has a great deal 
of knowledge and brings unique programming to 
the table. She has been great to have on staff." 
Campus ministry regularly offers Sunday Mass and 
Daily Mass. With so many options and a stellar 
staff, it can be home for anyone.

King's Pream 2009 


"From Pream to 

On January 19, 2009, La Salle University 
celebrated the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 
by hosting King's Dream 2009: From Dream to 
Reality. The day began with sixteen students 
participating in a park clean-up at Fernhill. This was 
the first service component added to King's Dream 
in six years. 

In addition, King's Dream included an 
afternoon session called "The Emerging Leaders 
Retreat". During this, 50 students participated in a 
discussion on types of leadership and leadership in 
the La Salle community and neighborhood. These 
same students took a leadership personality test. 

"The most informative part of the day for me 
was learning about my personality type," said 
freshman Nursing major, Megan Marron. "I think 
that knowing yourself and how you work as a 
leader allows you to effectively and efficiently lead. 
My favorite part of the day was our concluding 
discussion connecting our role as Lasallians to the 
goals of Dr. King. It is so important to remember 
that although we are college students, we share our 
neighborhood with many other people and we need 
to be aware of our fellow community members." 

The day concluded with a dinner at Treetops 
featuring music from Neo African Drums n' Dance. 

Overall, the day saw students carrying on the 
message of Dr. King, discussing ways to incorporate 
it into their Lasallian values. At the end of King's 
Dream, these students were ready to carry on Dr. 
King's challenges of leadership and service.

coordinates the annual Health Fair supported by 
the Student Activities Fee. Work begins several 
months before the actual event.

Mentoring Freshmen 

The New Explorers Mentor Program, or NEMP 
began few years ago by Sean Hand, '09, and Chris 
Vokolos, '08, both members of SGA. With the help 
of Phenix Frazier and Teri Ceraso from Learning 
Support Services, these students spent many Friday 
nights researching similar programs at different 
college campuses and eventually got NEMP off the 
ground. It was designed to help incoming freshman 
assimilate to La Salle and college life. 

When a student first arrives at La Salle, 
Opening Weekend, FYO, freshman advising and 
many La Salle faculty and staff are available to give 
them the warmest welcome possible. But what about 
the first week of class when a student cannot find 
Benilde Tower or the Gold Card office? What 
happens on the weekend when a freshman's few close 
friends go home? 

NEMP aims to pair a small group of incoming 
freshmen, Little E, with an upperclassman, Big E. 
The Big Es know where freshmen need to go. They 
are able to bring Little Es to a Late Night La Salle 
event or a Phillies game with some friends. 
Big Es act as big brothers and sisters on campus, 
introducing them to student leaders, and making them 
feel like a true member of the La Salle community. 
Said Junior Joan Lyall, "the most rewarding thing is 
just being able to help freshman adjust to the many 
changes that they'll face their first year." 

When the program started, it had 6 Big Es and 
50 Little Es. This year there were 30+ mentors 
working with close to 300 freshmen. The success this 
program has seen in just a few short years is a 
testament to the potential this program has in shaping 
the future of not only the freshman students, but also 
the Lasalle community.

A Collaboration of 
Student Work 

Spring Fling is a collaborative weekend of 
events designed to bring the campus together and 
celebrate the coming of spring. Plans for Spring 
Fling 2009 (April 17, 18 and 19) were in swing all 
year to make 2009 as successful as 2008. 

The Spring Fling Committee was made up of 
members from RSA, BackPAC, WEXP, CAOS, 
PRSSA, and Late Night La Salle. "This small group 
of students who planned this event spent an entire 
year organizing, fundraising, and promoting Spring 
Fling Weekend", said Julie Pompizzi, Late Night La 
Salle Coordinator. The Committee was supported 
by SGA, IFSC, Multimedia Services, and the 
Student Activities Fee. 

Throughout the weekend, about 1000 
people attended the events at the Hayman Center, 
with the largest amount attending the 
CollegeHumor Comedy show, about 500. 
However, this does not include some of the other 
events that were planned in conjunction with Spring 
Fling such as the Masque show, the South Campus 
Shindig, and Dodgeball for Diabetes. "The weekend 
was, overall, jam-packed with entertainment", said 

The weekend turned out to be a lot of fun for 
all involved. The students that worked on the 
Committee deserve much of the credit for the 
success of the weekend. "Spring Fling Weekend is 
exciting because it is a collaboration of many 
different parts of the La Salle community and it 
brings together many different types and groups of 
students. It's a celebration of making it through the 
school year," said Pompizzi.

student to incorporate clubs and activities into the 
grueling schedule of courses and class work. Yet La

above and beyond to be involved. 

With over 100 clubs active on campus, it is 
obvious that La Salle students are grounded in their 
commitment to their organizations. Whether it be a

Grounded through 

the Future 

A perfect word to describe senior year is 
change. With all the changes that students face in 
senior year: final classes, internships, jobs, 
graduation, graduate school, apartment hunting and 
meeting new people, "Grounded Through Change" is 
the perfect way to describe this fast-paced year. 

However, another word often persists to be 
thrown around senior year: future. Students are 
often asked about their future plans and all the 
changes they experience are routed in these plans 
and endeavors. Because of this, more importantly, 
senior year is "Grounded Through the Future". 

Whatever the future holds, one can bet that 
La Salle graduates are ready to tackle the world, 
from the experiences they have gained through their 
time at La Salle, both in and out of the classrooms. 
Congratulations to all 2009 graduates!

Baccalaureate Mass 20 

Every year, the Baccalaureate mass and the Graduation Gala 
are different and unique for each graduating class. 

This year, the Class of 2009 held their Baccalaureate mass on 
campus, in the Hayman Center on Saturday, May 16. The Cathedral 
of Sts. Peter and Paul in Center City previously was the location for 
the Baccalaureate mass. This change allowed graduates to invite more 
guests to the mass, improved parking and allowed guests to go right 
from the mass at the Hayman Center straight to the Graduation Gala.

Garrett Patrick Pollard 

We are so very proud of you and 
all of your accomplishments... 

To laugh often and much 

To win respect of intelligent people and the 

affection of children 
To earn the appreciation of honest critics 

and endure the betrayal of false friends 
To appreciate beauty 
To find the best in others 
To leave the world a little better 
Wliether by a healthy child, a garden patch 

or a redeemed social condition 
To know even one life has breathed easier 

because you have lived. 
This is the meaning of success. 

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

Volume 65 of the Explorer Yearbook was printed by Taylor Publishing Company. Emmy 
Kachel acted as the Taylor representative to La Salle University. The initial preparation, cover 
design and final assembly of the yearbook took place at the Taylor plant in Dallas, Tx. 800 
copies of the yearbook were printed. The book is made up of 256 pages of 100 # gloss 
enamel paper printed in four color Kamori Digital press. The cover of the 2009 yearbook is 
fabric blue matte with clear varnish accented with gold silkscreen and the book has gold dust 
end sheets. 

Carl Wolf Studio, the photography division of Herff Jones, produced all the senior portraits in 
the book, as well as many athletic, academic and candid photos. The remainder of the pictures 
were taken by the Explorer staff, Sara Allen, '08, submitted by individual members of the La 
Salle University community, donated to the yearbook by Unversity Communications and the 
University Archives. 

The "Grounded Through Change" theme was developed by the Explorer Yearbook staff and 
the layouts within the book were designed by the staff using Taylor's Studio Works Online 
Program. The 2009 Explorer is an official publication of La Salle University, Philadelphia, 
Pennsylvania and reproduction of any portion of this book, either in part, or its entirety, is 
prohibited without written consent of the University.
