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 Neubauer. 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. Jen McShane, '1( hello, even if he is running to a class well-known for his listening skills or other event.

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 championship. It is these occurences along with many others that make 2009 "grounded through change." O <D Remembering A Professor ^> 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 recognition. 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 years. 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 o O Changes in the Landscape 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 ^ o o moved to West Campus, as were the science classrooms, temporarily, as O 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 1/5 u 03 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. Jen McShane, '10 f^ - Br u o > Celebrating World Champions "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. Jen McShane,'10 o o u C3 Excersing the Right to Vote T3 o o 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. Jen McShane, '10 o •F- 1 +-> > c o U 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. CO o o Jen McShane,'10 S-H d 3 u d International Education Week T3 d d o u o 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. Jen McShane, '10 Farewell, Dr. Joseph Cicala GO H -a O O 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 programs. 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. Jen McShane,'10 /A t a • ] ■ Hill I I^J* a ft Ml I Grounded through Learnin Everyday, students rush to classes that help prepare us for outside the University walls. Whether a science class, or writing class or art class, students at La Salle gain the skills needed to succeed in whatever major they desire. Each class is aimed at preparing students and teaching skills, yet no two classes are the same. Even classes taught by the same 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 and academic courses of this University work hard to ensure that all students are prepared. Our futures, unceasing in change, are grounded through the learning we maintain through our academics. dmmistration Michael J. McGinniss, F.S.C. President Alice L.

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. 28 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. Elisabeth Harby, '11 Francis J. Ryan, Ed.D. Director, Professor Stuart Leibiger, Ph.D. Associate Professor Judith Musser, Ph.D. Associate Professor Kevin Grauke, Ph.D. Assistant Professor 29 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. Elisabeth Harby, '11 Patricia Haberstroh, Ph.D. Chair Siobhan Conaty, Ph.D. Assistant Professor 30 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. Jen McShane, '10| Norbert F.

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. Pam Woodward, '09 II Thomas S.

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.

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.

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.

Associate Professor Raymond Kirsch, Ph.D. Associate Professor John Beatty, Ph.D. Associate Professor Susan McDonald, Ph.D. Assistant Professor With the current economic issues, students studying Economics are able to learn and understand the causes and effects of what is occurring 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. Jen McShane, '10 H.

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.

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 rewarding. 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. Elisabeth Harby, '11 38 Kevin J. Harty, Ph.D. Chair, Professor James A.

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 Biology. 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. Jen McShane, '10 Henry A.

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 Japanese. 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.

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.

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. Elisabeth Harby, '11 Stuart E.

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. Bobby D.

Assistant Professor 43 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."

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 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 society. Carolyn Wolfe, '09 Joseph F.

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 Ethics. 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 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 Convocation. 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.

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. Charles A.

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. Jen McShane, '10 Maty Jeanne Welsh, Ph.D. Gerald E. Fitzgerald, F.S.C. Chair, Professor Susan C.

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.

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. HIGHLIGHTS U 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. afefc^lSB 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 field. Jen McShane, 10 58 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| Zane Robinson Wolf, Ph.D., RN, FAAN Dean and Professor Janice M.

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.

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. Tri Huvnh. '09 65 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!

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. Julia Walsh, '12 70 71 King's Pream 2009 72 "From Pream to Reality" 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.

Members of the South Asian Student Alliance (S.A.S.A.) and American Asian Students Intercultural Association (A/A. S.I. A.) worked hard create a entertaining and educational program. The night kicked off at 6:30 with a cultural skit performed by members of S.A.S.A. Then La Salle Singers remembered the American cultural with a beautiful performance of the National Anthem. This was followed by a "Freedom Steppers Dance", performed by children from Philadelphia Freedom Schools and a Filipino Dance performed by Mutya Philippene Dance Company. Music from African Drummers was performed by the Youth Art Forum of Cultural Expression (Y.A.F.C.E.). A highlight from the night was a collaborative "Unity Dance" performed by a combination of members of S.A.S.A., Y.A.F.C.E. and the Pastorius Francis Elementary School. The night culminated in a Multicultural fashion show, with La Salle Multicultural students walking the runways. The night was a success, raising over $300, which was donated to the students from Philadelphia Freedom Schools, Say Yes to Education, and the Youth Art Forum of Cultural Expression, all who joined in the performances that night.

Julia Walsh, '11 77 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.

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.

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. If I Graduation Gala The Graduation Gala, now in its second year and sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs, the Office for University Advancement and the Alumni Association, was held on Saturday, May 16, immediately following the Baccalaureate mass. A total of 400 graduates and their guests attended the event. The Gala was held on the Main Quad, allowing students to mingle with each other and guests one last time on La Salle's campus before graduating the next day. May 17, 2009 '■'II' - ||i ,JtH, ,kfi!
