Florida Presbyterian College, founded in 195c3, welcomed 
its first freshman class in the fall of 1960. Florida 
Presbyterian was never Intended to be the permanent 
name of the school, and on July 1,1972, it was renamed 
Eckerd College after Jack Eckerd 
who had donated a substantial 
amount of money to the school. In 
addition to its name, Eckerd has 
seen many changes in its "Passage 
Through Time." The campus has de-

of causes. With all of these influ- 
ences and changes one thing has re- 
mained constant at Eckerd, the 
spirit of the students who have at-

As the college grows into the 21 st

how much it will change as technol-

A Time To Gather 

Not long ago, things were very different concern- 
ing complex parties and drinking on campus. The 
pub use to sell beer to those who were of age and 
below the pub, was the basement where different 
functions, such as movies and 
comedians, were held. When the 
drinking age was raised to age 
twenty-one, more people overall 
began to abuse the substance of 
alcohol, Including Eckerd stu- 
dents. This abuse saw its peak 
this year causing dramatic

ties. Delta Flashback resulted in the decision to 
move parties away from the dorms. For the remain- 
der of the year, the complex parties were to be 
held elsewhere on campus. According to Director 
of Student Activities Reece Roberson, "I think that 
times have changed, whatever is right oneyear may 
not be what's right for the next year."

Some consider Autumn Term one of the bet- 
ter features that attracted them to Eckerd Col- 
lege. College is an entirely new experience with new 
areas of study, new surroundings and unfamiliar 
faces. Most of the freshman came to Eckerd not 
knowing anyone. This presents an awkward situa- 
tion to those who are too shy or just not inter- 
ested in making new friends. Rebecca Day said, 
"Autumn Term was a good time to meet new people 
and make friends that would last a lifetime." 

Autumn Term gave freshmen a chance to 
meet each other. "Go For It" broke the ice for many. 
At the Hometown Dinner freshmen met ASPEC 
members and fellow students from their home 
states. Luncheons and dinners, such as the 
Multicultural Luncheon, allowed freshmen to taste 
foods from various cultures and offered yet an- 
other chance for interaction. 

There were varying thoughts about Autumn 
Term events. Freshmen either enjoyed the activi- 
ties or felt they were structured like summer camp. 
"I felt there were lots of organized activities which 
allowed the students to take advantage of the 
attractions that are here that they may not have 
heard about such as the Dali museum and the 
Florida Aquarium", said Angela Guyadeen. 

Looking back on past Autumn Terms, upper- 
classmen can offer a different perspective. They 
claim it was an easy way to be introduced into 
college life. While some Autumn Term classes were 
challenging, most feel this helped them in the long 
run. They also agree that with each Autumn Term 
they have noticed significant improvements in the 
events offered, with more to come in the future.

Delta's complex party was a blast from the 
past. The event reminisced the days of old with 
costumes from as far back as the 1920s. There 
were contests for the best overall costume and 
the best costumes from each decade. There were 
swingers, go-go girls, hippies, flappers, punks and 
everything in between. The Sunshine Thrift Store 
probably made quite a profit off of the Eckerd stu- 
dents! Right up until the day of the long awaited 
event, students were making runs to get the fin- 
ishing touches for their outfits. 

Hosted in the scenic outdoor commons of 
Delta complex, the party had it all: disco lights, 
strobe lights, and bubble machines. Delta did a 
great job creating a multifaceted environment in 
which everyone could comfortably party. The turn- 
out, though not consistent, was great. Everyone 
made an appearance, even if for a short time, to 
have a swing around the dance floor and to see 
their brightly adorned compadres. 

The DJs fulfilled all of their requirements, 
and then some. The music they played screamed 
"Flashback!" They made sure to cover music from 
almost every decade, though most of the focus 
was, again, on the '60s and 70s. They tried to 
keep the natives from getting restless and man- 
aged to achieve their goal. From "The Dirty Boogie" 
to "Disco inferno" people danced the night away. 

While the party was an overall success, due 
to a numberof security incidents including a num- 
ber of underage drinkers, the party had its reper- 
cussions. These were the cancellation of Beta Trop- 
ics and the movement of complex parties away 
from the dorms allowing for more controi.

every Halloween -Zet; 
complex did a lot of preparln, 
year's party would be great. Many freshmen waited 
with anticipation after hearing about the party. 
The week before the party, students wondered at 
the wooden Z's hung around school, a take from 
this year's thriller The 5lair Witch Project. There 
were mixed reactions from students about the 
1999 Zeta Halloween. 

Most upperclassmen seemed to think this 
year's party was better than last year's. However, 
many upperclassmen thought it was better in prior 
years when it was located at Zeta Complex instead 
of the woods near Fox Hall where it was held this 
October. Sophomore Missy Ciezki said, "This year 
seemed better organized but It was different from 
last year because it wasn't in Zeta Complex and I 
think it was better located there." The overall opin- 
ion about the party was that the location was 
not that great but the costumes and Halloween 
spirit was improved. Paakow Arku expressed his 
opinion, "I thought the Halloween costumes this 
year were wonderful and people put a lot of effort 
into many of them. The costumes made it seem 
like a better Halloween spirit also." 

Some did not think too highly of the much- 
anticipated complex party. Freshmen had noth- 
ing to base a comparison on about Zeta Hallow- 
een. One freshman, Matt Garrett, said, "I thought 
Zeta Halloween was boring and decided to leave 
soon after I arrived." Most freshman seemed to 
be disappointed but know a lot of planning went 
Into the party. Brittney Boone stated, "People 
weren't dancing and it just seemed like a lot of 
drunk people standing around in the woods"

Palmetto Productions brought in three dif- 
ferent types of stand-up performers this year. 

With the ability to send his audience into 
utter laughter, comedian Erik Passoja made a 
great impression on those students here for Au- 
tumn Term. Passoja's act had a huge turn out, 
and proved to be more than worthy for a fresh- 
man event. "You never know what you're going to 
get when it comes to stand-up comics, but this 
one was really good, he kept the audience rolling," 
said one upperclass attendee. 

Chip Flatow was the hypnotist brought on 
campus this year. Flatow started his show by 
clearing up some issues of confusion regarding 
hypnosis. He explained that we all go into a hyp- 
notic state everyday when we feel or do something 
out of the ordinary and also when we sleep. After 
this explanation, Flatow invited students inter- 
ested in being hypnotized to join him on stage. 
The seats filled up quickly and the show began. 
Once the subjects were deeply in a state of hyp- 
nosis the laughter was nonstop as Flatow had 
his subjects act out crazy antics on stage. 

The third stand-up artist was a bit differ- 
ent, he was a mentalist. Craig Karges used his 
mental 'powers,' to make believers out of many 
skeptical viewers. Karges used many techniques, 
both mental and physical. Through unconscious 
writing, he read random thoughts of the audience, 
he pulled students up on stage, and showed proof 
that he had correctly predicted th

For the first time ever, a different kind of 
event was offered to Eckerd students on a sunny 
Saturday afternoon. Palmetto Productions 
brought a laser tag arena on campus. This was 
a giant inflated black balloon type arena, set up 
in Slater's woods. 

Students came freely throughout the day 
to take advantage of this event. The overall turn- 
out for the whole day was good. Many students 
played multiple times, and even went back to their 
dorms to get friends to join in the fun. 

The game consisted of two teams. These 
teams were given guns with which they would 
shoot in the arena. They were instructed on the 
rules of the game and how they could score once 

Upon entering the arena, one team would 
run left and the other right down a corridor that 
led to the playing area. The atmosphere was com- 
plete with black lights, walls splattered with black 
light paints and fog generated by a machine. 

The object of the game was to gain as 
many points as possible, increasing your score 
from -50,000 up to a maximum of +50,000, 
by shooting at those with opposite colored guns 
without being hit in return. Upon being hit, par- 
ticipants felt a slight shock as the gun vibrated 
in their hand being temporarily disabled. 

Kimberley Schillhammer, director of the 
event, stated, "I wanted to try something new 
with Palmetto this year and I thought Laser Tag 
would be really cool and different; something the 
school had never done before. I'm thinking of 
bringing it back next year just because it was 
pretty successful."

What will the Eckerd students of this year 
remember most about the last Alpha party of the 
millennium? It has been said to be the first real 
Alpha party in a very long time. Up until this year, 
people have not said the words "Alpha" and "party" 
in the same sentence and been able to keep a 
straight face. When people were informed that 
Alpha was the complex hosting the Millennium 
Bash, the first response was, "That's an oxymo- 
ron!" This party, however, proved to be one of the 
best this semester! 

As a fundraiser, they had a car painted to 
look like a police car, which people had to pay a 
dollar to get a few hits with a baseball bat, and 
five dollars for windows. One of the local radio sta- 
tions, 93.3 FLZ, played at the big event. Candy 
canes and raffle tickets were distributed as 
guests entered the party for the midnight give- 
aways of various prizes, including free CDs. 

The party was held in "Fountain Square" in 
front of the mailboxes and library, a first at Eckerd 
College. The trees were lit with twinkling Christ- 
mas lights, and the mood was set to be fairly 
mellow. The party was good, clean fun and the out- 
come was quite impressive. The night was com- 
plete with a shining silver ball dropping from the 
flagpole at midnight, bringing ln....Decemeber 5, 

Most of the students came dressed to im- 
press and grooved to the pumpin' beats all night 
long. This was their way of celebrating the Impend- 
ing end of the millennium with their friends just a 
bit early. It was the last complex party of 1999 
and made way for the first one of ZOOO.

On Friday, November 5, 1999, Eckerd Col- 
lege had its first ever Fall Ball. The turnout was 
fantastic! The Fall Ball was a Quest For Meanin 
project run by a group of seniors: Kendra 'drown, 
Kevin Kalmin, Lynne Grayton, Gordon Wilkinson, 
Todd Hode, Jason Nydick, and Tom Muldoon, ful- 
filling their service project requirement for the 
course. Quest For Meaning requires each stu- 
dent to put forth at least forty hours of commu- 
nity service for the project; however, these seven 
students put forth much more time than that. 

The project raised money for R.O.C.K.. 
(Reaching Out to Cancer Kids) Camp in Florida, 
an affiliation of the American Cancer Society. This 
camp takes children suffering from all forms of 
cancer and allows them to have fun and forget 
about their condition. "Children are so innocent 
and don't understand exactly what is happening 
to them," says project leader Kendra Brown 
"R.O.C.IC Camp allows these children to forget a 
their troubles and lets them just have fun." 

The dance was held at the luxurious Vinoy 
Hotel in downtown St. Petersburg. The night was 
one to remember recollecting old memories of high 
school proms. The girls and guys dressed up in 
their best clothes and danced the night away to 
the music provided by the QFM group. There were 
over three hundred tickets sold for the event and 
over $"5500 dollars collected. "However, the Eckerd 
College community is the group of people who 
should be thanked," says Brown, "without them, 
the children attending R.O.C.K. Camp would not 
be able to enjoy a carefree summer."

at this new event was not nearly as high as that 
typical of the Nu complex party, but at the same 
time, no food went to waste! 

During Nu Shrimp Feet, the Men's Volleyball 
Team held their second annual auction. The play- 
ers, auctioned off to the highest bidder, were 
obliged to do whatever they were Instructed by 
their purchaser for a twenty-four hour period. 
Heedless to say, this was quite an attention get- 
ter. One player was bought by his own suite-mates 
and forced to clean their suite, others had to do 
various chores such as washing laundry and cars, 
still others had to dress upas told or act as serv- 
ers to their owners in the cafeteria. 

In addition to food and the auction, the sand 
court was set up for Nightspiker Blacklight Vol- 
leyball. About twenty or thirty people hung around 
to play on this glowing court with popular musical 
tunes playing in the background. 

Many would have preferred Nu Mardi Gras 
and wondered why this tradition was broken. Nu 
Mardi Gras has always been a highly anticipated 
event, so why cancel it? The primary reason was 
that it just did not get planned. Those living in 
the dorm did not come together enough to put 
their plans to action. There was :

On April 25, 2000, Eckerd College hosted 
its annual Spring Ball at the luxurious Vinoy Re- 
sort in downtown St. Petersburg. The theme for 
this year's dance was "Monte Car\o" The tickets 
to the dance were printed on playing cards to go 
along with this theme, and in the lobby of the ball- 
room were several casino games; including Rou- 
lette, Black Jack, and Crape. Students could 
gamble their fake "Fun Money" at each of these 
casino tables, which were manned by guest deal- 
ers Kichard Walace, David Hastings, and Melissa 
Wolfman. Instead of winning money, students 
earned tickets. These were used at the end of the 
night in a raffle for various prizes. 

Over 650 students, faculty, and staff of 
Eckerd College attended the Ball. The event was 
hosted by Palmetto Productions, with the plan- 
ning committee headed by Senior Carrie Hall. The 
event raised $4000 to help cover the expense of 
the evening. 

Sophomore Tiffany Stevens commented 
that she felt this year's Spring Ball was better 
than last year's considering the behavior and at- 
titude of all in attendance. Michelle Levy stated, 
"It was great to see everyone having a great time. 
As a senior, it was a nice tension release for the 
end of the year" 

The 2000 Spring Ball made a great impact 
on the students who went. At the end of the night, 
the first 500 students who bought tickets were 
given a free hurricane glass to commemorate the 
evening. Most everyone had a great time, making 
it a dance that will be remembered for years to

This year Palmetto Productions put on a 
plethora of concerts to give the student body more 
activities to choose from. 

The biggest of these, aside from Pack Your 
Bags, was the Sweet Honey in the Rock concert. 
A free concert at the Palladium Theater, the place 
was packed with those curious about this a 
cappella women's singing group. The entire concert 
was filled with an energy that ran from the per- 
formers on stage to the back of the audience. 
Everyone was encouraged by Sweet Honey to par- 
ticipate and sing along, giving a sense of belong- 
ing to those in the audience with those on stage. 

Other on campus concerts were held in the 
pub, and although turnout to those concerts never 
came close to matching that of Sweet Honey in 
the Rock, there was enough support. One success- 
ful night was the F3eth Wood concert. Beth Wood 
sang in the pub, and there were a lot of students 
who were just sitting mesmerized by her beautiful 
voice and lyrics. There also was Blueberry Jam, a 
bluegrass group that played mostly country-type 
songs, and an instrumental guitarist, Scott 
Huckaby, who played for almost two hours 
straight. He used a lot of effects with his guitar 
to create a very new-age type sound. 

Handshake Squad was a concert held in 
Dendy McNair auditorium In the fall. This punk style 
band attracted a small audience of supporters. 

While the social life of campus lagged this 
year, such activities as these concerts showed 
that Palmetto and Campus Activities were mak- 
ing an attempt to entertain the students, and 
this effort was appreciated.

• of the 
most p, ( 

semester. This first-time e\ . 
Hough Quad, it drew a crowd larger than any of 
the complex parties held in this same area. This 
was probably due to the involvement of over 100 
students in the show itself. 

Fifty male and fifty female contestants were 
•^reregistered for a chance to win a date with the 
surprise student bachelor and bachelorette invited 
to the show by Palmetto Productions. 

The contestants on stage were thinned out 
through such questions as, "boxers or briefs." The 
remaining were subject to a number of crazy 
stunts to see who most deserved the prize date. 
These tasks included a frozen t-shirt contest for 
the girls, who had to unfold and adorn themselves 
with a frozen t-shirt using nothing but their teeth. 
The rules were modified when the shirts were so 
frozen that the girls had to use their hands. 

Cupid, played by Andre Schwitter, complete 
with cigarette, trolloped on stage to get the crowd 
going and to distribute beads during breaks in the 
show. Co-hosts Davie Gill and Kristina Morey kept 
the audience amused with witty comments and 
various antics on stage. The contestants them- 
selves also added to the experience with unex- 
pected occurrences such as one male who ripped 
of his wind-pants as he exited the stage exposing 
the black thong he wore underneath. 

A date with Amanda Zion was won by 
Brendan McClusky and with Jamie Levasseur by 
Maureen Mansour. Each couple received $25 for 
the Melting Pot and free tickets to the Spring Ball. 
The event really brought the community together 
to enjoy each other and see things many will never 
see again!

Many students were dressed in their best 
togas and ready to party for this year's Gamma 
Goes Greek. Live music, prizes, and contests were 
planned to ensure a Greek success. One change in 
the plans for the party, however, was enough to 
break tradition and turn people away. This change 
was the location, the biggest difference between 
this year's festivity and that of last year. 

Gamma's party was held in Fox Woods 
rather than in Gamma itself. This move managed 
to remove the party just enough to discourage 
students from attending. One student com- 
mented that Fox Hall was too far away from the 
residence halls and that students could not come 
and go easily. Since the termination of complex 
parties being held in the complexes, a whole era of 
dorm socialization ended. 

According to one anonymous student, 
"People don't care anymore because it's a drag 
without the complex." Arguments are also being 
made that the school has lost its unified feeling 
by pulling complex parties away from the complex. 

Gamma residents commented that hours 
of hard work, and weeks of planning resulted in a 
"bust." The students that did attend were not 
happy with the outcome as Gamma's Toga party 
had previously been one of their favorites. Accord- 
ing to one junior, "Last year it was more fun, there 
were more people and togas!" Elizabeth Frankenfeld 
had one comment to make, "Very disappointing!"

Kennedy Shambusf 

March 17"', St. Patrick's Day, was an 
eventful day at Eckerd College. Both the an- 
nual Kennedy Shamrock'd party and a special 
Bingo Night, a new event, were held in and 
around Fox Hall. 

In the early evening, many students chose 
to spend some time at the Campus Ministries 
sponsored Bingo Night. With no cover charge, 
Bingo Night was a great place for students to 
hang out with friends and win prizes. Accord- 
ing to Alisa Mazzocchi, "It gave us something 
to do and we enjoyed it." Cristin Ashmankas 
said that, "It was an opportunity to get silly 
and have a good time on a Friday night, alco- 
hol-free. Plus the prizes were great!" Prizes in- 
cluded gift certificates to various restaurants, 
one giant purple gorilla, jewelry made by Mandy, 
assistant chaplain, and a full three course meal 
catered by Mona, head chaplain. Everyone who 
attended had a great time before heading out 
for their St. Patrick's Day festivities. 

Following Binge was I ennedy : 'hamrr - I VI 
Usually held in Kennedy, the party was held in 
front of Fox Hall. It was complete with music 
and, of course, the famous jello slide, covered 
in lots of slimy green jello. Mark Mueller, who 
went to the party says, "It was a lot of fun but 
I think it would have been better if there were 
girls with little outfits and a lot of body paint 
like Night Spiker Volleyball." The jello slide was 
the main event, on which almost everyone in 
attendance participated. It was mostly the 
Kennedy residents and their friends who at- 
tended this party as many students found big- 
ger and better things to do off campus.

has occurred on campus this year. On 
their quest to find entertainment 
for the evening, they went to the 
library and found Brittany Spears 
and her girls who entertained 
them with smooth moves and lap 
dances, photo by Jessica Green 

Final Pieformance 

Entitled "Hiaasen Pie," the last ever Bullshit 
Ballet was performed this year. Due to the fact 
that Hiaasen will become co-ed next year, this all- 
male force beh'md the Bullshit Ballet will be lost 
and it will become open to the entire student body. 

As their final episode, number 34, Hiaasen 
mocked several movies. From American Pieto Star 
Warsand The Matrix, the guys did not miss a beat. 
Their parodies also included N-5YNC and Brittany 
5pears with her back-up girls. 

There were several messages that were ex- 
pressed throughout the show, many of which doted 
on security and the administration for all of the 
restrictions they have placed causing many loved 
traditions to disappear from the Eckerd party 
scene. The Hiaasen boys did an excellent job of 
portraying the problems on campus in a hilarious 
manner. The show was very entertaining, and yet 
the message given was somber and sad. 

The Bullshit Ballet did spice things up a bit, 
especial when they dressed up as Brittany Spears 
and her dance team. The stuffed bras and poor 
make-up jobs were a perfect touch, and the dance 
routines were fitting. Christie Biggs and Erica 
Mantz choreographed the show, which was put 
together with perfection. 

It was obvious that all the guys from 
Hiaasen had a great time putting the ballet to- 
gether and performing it. The audience also showed 
their enjoyment, cheering, "Bullshit! Bullshit!" over 
and over again during each scene change. It is a 
shame that this had to be the last year. The 
Hiaasen Bullshit Ballet has been one of the most 
popular activities on campus over the years. Heed- 
less to say, it went out with a fantastic bang.

To celebrate spring, Palmetto Productions 
hosted Springtopia, a week full of special events, 
that concluded with the "Monte Car\o" Spring Ball. 

The Springtopia (sick-Off Fiesta was held at 
the pavilion where there was a catered dinner, live 
music, sports and mural painting. Later that night, 
Singled Out was held in the Hough Center Quad. 
Hosts Davie Gill and Krlstlna Morey put contes- 
tants through a series of stunts performed in 
hopes of winning a date to the Spring Ball. A per- 
spective student visiting for the night commented, 
"This is hilarious!" 

Saturday the festivities continued with 
"Psychedelic Saturday" at the Pub. Student Min- 
istries sponsored an afternoon of tie dying and 
ice cream that proved to be a lot of fun in the 
beautiful warm weather. On "Manic Monday," stu- 
dents rushed to receive free Publix subs and so- 
cialize with their friends at the pub. "Tantalizing 
Tuesday," according to Blanca Garcia, was, "A 
great idea, the flowers, popsicles and music gave 
it a perfect spring atmosphere." "Wacky Wednes- 
day" included snowcones at roomdraw, which ev- 
eryone enjoyed while waiting in the long lines. 

Springtopia festivities drew towards an end 
on "Total Awareness Thursday" For this day, the 
Earth Society sponsored Earth Fest 2000. The 
day was full of events including speakers from the 
Sierra Club, Suncoast Seabirds and presentations 
on rainforest and wetlands conservation. The Ur- 
ban Gypsies qraced the stage with an awesome 
performance and students enjoyed the tie dying 
and pottery wheels. Overall, Springtopia was a 
great success enjoyed by all.

Show Whri Vou Know 

Eckerd College's first ever game show, Think 
Fast, was very well attended, by students, pro- 
spective students, staff and parents. 

Sponsored by Palmetto Productions and 
Admissions, the game show was held in Fox Hall 
on Friday, April 14. The game allowed 50 teams 
to play at the same time. Starting off with a small 
crowd, the room was full after just a half-hour. 
Students responded to trivia questions, that were 
read aloud and displayed on screens, with hand- 
held controllers. They gained points not only for 
the correct answer, but also for how quickly they 
answered the questions. Trivia ranged from his- 
tory, math and literature to pop culture. "The 
questions were more difficult than Jeopardy," sev- 
eral students said during the course of the 

There were a total of three rounds. The 
teams with the top three scores at the end of 
each round competed against each other, choos- 
ing the teams that would then move on to the 
next round. Winners from the three rounds com- 
peted aganist each other for the chance to win 
the $250 first prize, $150 eecond prize, and $50 
third prize. Items from the bookstore were also 
raffled off throughout the evening. 

Everyone had a great time at this first time 
event, opening the possibility for more games like 
Think Fast in the future.

Kappa Karnival, held during the day thisyear 
so that it could be in the complex and could be 
combined with an Eckerd Community day, was open 
to the entire Eckerd community and their fami- 
lies. While the turn out was not as large as the 
traditional Kappa Karnival, the events of the day 
did draw a number of students, faculty and staff. 

The carnival Included three Inflatable games 
on which friends could compete against one an- 
other. President Armacost was even witnessed on 
the Gladiator Joust in a battle with his grand- 
daughter. There also were a few booths set up in- 
cluding a cake walk and a fishing game. Skip was 
there in his clown costume with balloon animals 
and hats for all. There was also face painting which 
tuned out to be most popular with the kappa resi- 
dents as they painted themselves and their friends 
with Interesting designs. A good portion of the 
male residents of Kappa were dressed In skirts, 
which added a bit of color to the event. 

At about three o'clock there were a few 
games in which almost everybody who was present 
participated. This included an egg toss and a wa- 
ter balloon toss. A water balloon fight even broke 
out briefly, but after these events a good portion 
of the students who attended began to leave. 
However, those who stayed enjoyed music in the 
pavilion as the sun set over the sea wall.

Class of GiDers 

Smiles and tears, hopes and fears were 
among the graduates and the huge audience in 
the gym on Sunday, May 21. This year, there were 
so many people in attendance for graduation that 
Fox Hall was used as an additional place for people 
to see the commencement. 

Through the many speakers, the message 
was primarily "givers and takers." Richard E. 
Lapchick gave the commencement address, and 
he spoke of positive enforcements throughout life. 
The message was clear that these graduates are 
givers and not takers, and they will continue to 
contribute to the community in their futures. 

The awards of excellence were given before 
the conferring of degrees by President Armacost. 
The Philip Lee Award of Academic Excellence was 
given to Laura Estep, the Ronald Wilson Memorial 
Award was granted to Rebecca Root, Daphne 
Macfarlan was recognized through the Miller 
Award, and Nadji Kirby was given the James H. 
Robinson Award. The Robert A. Staub Distin- 
guished Teacher Award was given to Professor Jeff 
Howard. The Psychology graduates gave him a 
standing ovation. 

While graduation is anticipated by all stu- 
dents, it is also a day of overwhelming emotions - 
saying goodbye to a life known for four years and 
stepping into an unknown future. Good friends and 
family surrounded the 'premises as the seniors 
celebrated the accomplishment of finishing college. 

College is not for everyone, and those who 
do finish should be very proud. There is always a 
time for play but these graduates knew that there 
is also a time for work, and when to do which. 

Congratulations class of 2000!

The clubs and organizations at Eckerd College are 
just as diverse as the students. Ranging from 
clubs within a major, such as Chemistry and Phys- 
ics, to clubs that inform the student body, like the 
Eckerd College Triton and WECX 
99.9, to clubs for entertainment 
and fun, like the Climbing Club and 
Theater Troupe, and even service 
clubs such as EC-SAR and Home- 
less Outreach, students can al- 
ways find something in which to 
partake. If for some reason a club 
does not exist, students can opt to start a new 
organization with the help of student government. 
Each year new clubs are founded and old organiza- 
tions depart from the growing Eckerd atmosphere. 
As one student stated, "There is always a club or 
organization on the Eckerd campus that each and 
every student can get involved with and enjoy." With 
the new millennium here, it is Time to Fartake!

oing for the Goal 

ECOS OfficERs, LEqislATivE Council, ECOS CommIttees, StucIent Court | 

Working for the benefit of 
the student body was ECOS' num- 
ber one priority this year. 

As stated by Alice Carlson, 
ECOS Vice President, "We want 
to get student feedback, and 
that's why we're here. One of the 
goals we've had this year is to in- 
crease student voice, making sure 
students are heard, through us 
and through administration and 
faculty, to make sure there is a 
lot of communication." 

ECOS tried really hard this 
year to make the student voice 
an influence, keeping the campus 
aware of what was going on and 
taking suggestions from the stu- 
dent body. Holding "Speak Out" 
nights increased student feed- 
back in major areas such as the 
meal plans and other food op- 

ECOS got really involved in as- 
sisting with a number of activities on 
campus this year. The officers 
started out the year as usual help- 
ing out during Autumn Term 
with activities for 
freshpersons. They 
also co-spon 
sored trips to 
Tampa Bay 
Games, events 
such as the In- 
ternationa I 
Dinner, and 
for class- 
room inter- 

was en- 
gaged in

many activities around campus this 
year. These included replacing 
styrofoam sick trays with 
tupperware, creating an international 
friends program, making 
the student govern- 
ment more visible, 
ublishing an 
ECOS web site, 
working to make 
soap available 
in the dorms, 
and improving 
the recycling 
program - just 
to mention 
a few. 

A n - 
other big 
project for 
the officers 
was creat- 
ing a safe 


ride program with the help of Yellow 
Cab. This was instituted during Al- 
cohol Awareness Week. Both of these 
programs were meant to encourage 
safe drinking and to prevent drunk 

Academic Affairs worked extra 
hard this year to bring in a number 
of speakers who focused on topics 
of interest to college students. These 
including "Nurse Without Boarders," 
"The Journey," and "Europe on 84 
cents a day." 

It is the job of ECOS to work 
on behalf of, and with, the Eckerd stu- 
dent body. This is in an effort to 
achieve their ultimate objective. . .to 
make the Eckerd student voice 
HEARD. This year's officers went 
above and beyond the call of duty to 
achieve this goal.

rom Reconnaissance to Rescue 

EcKERCi CollEqE Search anq Rescue 

Imagine yourself in a sinking 
boat in the middle of Tampa Bay. You 
want someone there immediately to 
save you. EC-SAR, the Eckerd College 
Search and Rescue Team, is who you 
would want to be there to help. 
Founded in 1971, the main purpose of 
this organization is to assist boat- 
ers in the Tampa Bay area. 

Originally, EC-SAR's purpose 
was to assist the sailing teams and 
tow their flipped sailboats back to 
safety. It soon progressed into an all 
waterfront assistance program; 
helping with flipped kayaks, canoes 
and other vessels and partaking in 
other activities. When they began in 
1971, EC-SAR had twelve members 
and one rescue boat. Today, the res- 
cue team has a total of sixty-two 
members and four rescue boats. 

In 199S-1999, the rescue team 
had a total of 434 "cases," or die- 

trees calls, from stranded boats in 
the bay. That was, undoubtedly, a 
record-breaking year. F3y February of 
2000, however, EC-SAR's files al- 
ready totaled 256 cases 
- ten percent ahead 
of the previous 
year's corre- 
sponding num- 
bers, and well 
above pace to 
break last 
year's record. 

year EC-SAR 
developed a 
new emergency 
service. They 
created "Duty 
Crews." The 
purpose of 
this was to en- 
sure that 

EC-SAR instructor 

and alumnus. Dom Campanella, gazes at his team 
during a training exercise. Dom's leadership to this 
group has assisted EC-SAR in becoming the best 
student rescue team in the nation, photo by Brian 

therewould be a rescue boat ready 
from 6:00pm to \0:00pm every 
night, facilitating a one-minute re- 
sponse time to distress calls. EC- 
SAR is the only college 
search and rescue 
team recognized by 
the US Coast 
Guard. The 
agreement be- 
tween the two 
allows the 
Coast Guard 
to delegate 
whatever cases 
they deem are 
in the best in- 
terest of EC- 
SAR to handle. 
Since the 
nearest Coast 
Guard station 
is over ten 

miles away, EC-SAR gets numerous 
cases for the area. The college's 
search and rescue team is involved 
in several types of emergency cases 
ranging from stalled boats to boat 
fires to the sad but true fact of sui- 
cide body recovery. 

EC-SAR has been involved in 
locally and nationally recognized 
emergencies. A recent local Incident 
wae the crash of a small ultra light 
plane. The team was involved in this} 
search and was recognized on Chan- 
nel & News. Two nationally recognized 
caeee were the collision between 
Blackthorn, a Coast Guard vessel, 
and a motor tanker (Jan 1961) and 
the collapse of the old Skyway Bridge 
(May 1961). These cases received 
extensive national coverage thus) 
heightening EC-SAR's recognition 
and commending its good work.

ecades of Change 

ThE HuLlAbAloo YEARbook ancJ T^e Trjton Newspaper 

Two student-run publications 
give weekly and yearly reports on the 
news and events that occur at 
Eckerd College. These are the Hulla- 
baloo, the Eckerd College Yearbook, 
[and the Triton, the Eckerd College 
Newspaper. Both of these take an 
'immense amount of time and dedi- 
cation on behalf of the staff. Many 
(all-nighters are pulled trying to meet 
deadlines and putting together news 
stories, photographs, and layouts 
into a well-composed publication. 

The two staffs work under dif- 
ferent time constraints. With weekly 
deadlines, the Triton is under a bit 
more pressure year-round. The Hul- 
labaloo has four deadlines to meet 
per year. These are dispersed 
throughout the year taking away the 
weekly pressure, but making procras- 
tination a bit easier. 

Throughout time both publica- 

tions have faced many obstacles. The 
original title of the yearbook at 
Florida Presbyterian was Logos. From 
1986 to 1985 the book was not in 
existence. It was started up 
again in 1989 underthe 
name Reflections. 
Now, after five re 
building years as 
the Hullabaloo, 
the staff is 
back on its feet 
again and able 
to produce a 
quality publica- 

The Triton 
has not suffered the 
same instabil-

ity, but it has 
faced many 
staff conflicts, 

leadership changes, ethical issues, 
controversy, and other such things 
relating to newspaper publication. 
The newspaper was titled Triton Tri- 
bune through 1996 when it 
changed to the Triton. 
Along with the 
name, many other 
changes have 
been made. 
These have in- 
cluded stu- 
dent opinion 
pieces, an ex- 
panded enter- 
tainment sec- 
tion, as well as, an 
overall revamping of 
layout and de- 
sign. The big- 
gest complica- 
tion they 
faced this year 

was the loss of all of their files from 
their hard drive. This happened mid- 
deadline, and they had to rebuild all 
of their templates. 

These publications work closely 
with one another. They also attend 
the annual CMA/NCP Media Conven- 
tion together each fall, which was 
held in Atlanta this year. The two 
staffs traveled together on one plane 
and interacted throughout the week- 
end allowing some bonding time. 

Few people realize the hard 
work that goes into producing a 
newspaper or yearbook. Both take 
great time management skills as well 
as prioritization. Each and every 
member of these t ■

Beyond the major publications 
of Eckerd College, there are a num- 
ber of other important media groups 
that are active on campus and that 
provide creative outlets for the stu- 
dent body. These include WECX, the 
Eckerd College Review, Eckerd College 
Media Photography, and the Media 

WECX is the student-run radio 
station on campus. It gives students 
the opportunity to plan, create, and 
host their own radio shows. Student 
shows are usually themed; this year 
they ranged from hip-hop, reggae, and 
jazz, to talk shows and everything 
else in-between. 

The Eckerd College Review is 
the student literary magazine pub- 
lished annually. This group of very 
dedicated etudents compiles art 
Nork and literary works, such as po- 
sms, short stories, and plays, all pro- 

duced by members of the student 
body. This publication is handed out 
to all members of the Eckerd com- 
munity for free at the end of 
the school year as a 
keepsake of the tal 
ent that the stu- 
dents of Eckerd 
College possess. 
E c k e rd 
College Media 
Photography is 
a group of stu- 
dents that en- 
joy taking pho- 
tos. Byjoining this 
organization they 
are called on to 
take pictures at a 
plethora of events 
on campus, mainly 
for The Triton, but

great way for those Interested in 

photography to get some ex-

up their portfolio. 

The Media 
Committee over- 
sees all of the 
media organi- 
zations at 
Eckerd College. 
It is headed by 
the Director of 
{DOC). Rristina 
Morey was this 
year's DOC. She 
held meetings ev- 
ery few weeks or 
months as 

needed. These 
meetings, open to 

all students, but primarily at- 
tended by the media heads and 
the actual committee members, 
gave the media heads an oppor- 
tunity to voice concerns pertain- 
ing to their respective media. It 
was a great resource for many 
this year in resolving the problems 
faced by these media. One of the 
fun things this committee did this 
Fall was hold "Media Madness" to 
show the campus how much fun 
the media organizations can be. 
All of these media are very 
important to Eckerd College, each 
intended for a different audience 
and each attracting a different 
interest group. They all open the 
doors for students to express 
themselves creatively in a setting 
where they can get some public

Everyone remembers their first 
day at Eckerd College being bombarded 
with more information and options 
than could be handled. With so many 
clubs to choose from, many steer away 
from the Academic clubs as they feel 
they will get plenty of academics in 
their classes. Besides, most students 
want to have fun in their free time. 

Perhaps it's the word "academic" 
that causes students to be drawn 
away from these clubs. By really look- 
ing at some of the activities these 
clubs host one comes to find that they 
are far from boring. Entertaining 
speakers, national conventions, and off 
campus trips to various places are a 
few of the many activities hosted by 
academic clubs at Eckerd. 

The Psychology Club "functions 
to increase Interest and knowledge In 
psychology and related fields" "We ex- 
ist for students to encourage aca- 

demic success and Interest in the psy- 
chology discipline." This club sponsored 
a number of speakers this year who 
discussed many interesting and Infor- 
mative topics. One such 
speaker was FBI Profiler 
Joe Havarro. hie 
mixed FBI profiling 
with job interview 
skills to give stu- 
dents Informa- 
tion that could 
prove valuable In 
their next Inter- 
view. According 
to president Angle 
Maitner, the club 
hopes to 

In the Physics 
Birnbaum push 

charter Psi 
Chi, a national 
honor society, 
and to get 
movies in 

Dendy with a psychology theme such 
as "Sixth Sense" and "As Good As It 
Gets," in the future. 

Another highly active club on 
campus is the Society for 
the Advancement of 
(SAM). Fredericka 
Murray states, 
"SAM is the 
oldest profes- 
sional manage- 
ment society In 
the world. Mem- 
bers Include pro- 
fessionals, man- 
agers, entrepre- 
neurs, and 


buttons on the high- 

tech equipment in hopes of causing a major catastrophe.

SAM is an In- 
valuable re- 
source for all 

Even a science major, who may some 
day have to manage hundreds o\ 
people in their own department of re 
search, could benefit from this club 
were managerial skills are developed 
This year 'they sent three members tc 
compete in the International Manage- 
ment Conference and Case Competi 
tion, held in St. Augustine. They have 
also Instituted a discussion group to 
deal with layoffs and their effect on 

Other academically based clubs 
Include the Herpetology Club, Chemis- 
try Club, bipedal Society, Human De- 
velopment, Association for Comput- 
ing Machinery, and Students in Free 
Enterprise. All of these help students 
expand on what they do In their 
classes and gives them valuable ex- 
perience for graduate school or future 
career endeavors.

Many students at Eckerd 
College are not content to simply 
not be noticed. These are the stu- 
dents who long for the spotlight; 
those who enjoy showing off their 
talents. Many of these students 
are involved in choir, orchestra, bell 
choir, band, and theater. These 
students, though often eccentric 
(to say the least), possess a cer- 
tain confidence, derived from their 
talents, that allows them to por- 
tray to the world that they are 
performers and they do not like 

Choir meets three times per 
week for an hour and ten minutes 
each time. Students receive one 
class credit for two semesters 
worth of participation. Evidently, 
the members of the choir are not 
there for the credit. In fact, many 
of the students participate with- 

out taking credit, clearly showing 
their commitment to their art. They 
perform in several concerts each se- 
mester, including those on cam- 
pus and several guest ap- 
pearances at local 
churches. The Mad

most memorable 
events in the

year they also

up this early wasn't enough, members

ence. One cannot help but have the 
utmost respect for people this dedi-

Considering the diversity of the 
Eckerd student body, it is only just 
that we should have such a wide va- 
riety of clubs on campus represen- 
tative of these diversities. 

The African American So- 
ciety's purpose is to provide a cul- 
tural reference point for Eckerd's Af- 
rican American students and to cre- 
ate bonds not just among them, but 
also between them and the general 
student body. "It brings the group on

formed as an over

Eckerd offers a number of ac- 
tivities that test mind, body, and 
spirit. Not only do these clubs test 
the mind, body, and spirit, but they 
also promote inner well-being. This 
inner well-being can be achieved 
through graceful movements in clubs 
such as Swing and Ballet, or through 
physical actions like that of Hajimari 
No Michi Jujutsu, Aerobics and Box- 

besides the obvious physical 
health benefits of these clubs, other 
benefits exist. The human body is ca- 
pable of beautiful movements and 
outrageous postures. Olof Soebech 
believes, "The study of ballet is more 
than a good physical exercise. It 
helps one understand, appreciate, 
and respect one's body and the art 
of ballet." Comparing the graceful 
movements of ballet to the physical 

nature of boxing may seem absurd; Eckerd College is a safe way to re-

clubs offering services to an array of 
different organizations and causes. 

Circle K. is the largest student

Many students participate in 
leadership clubs to serve students 
and the community. Giving to others 
also gives these students a feeling of 
accomplishment and satisfaction. 
Organizations and leadership roles 
provide such opportunities. 

Student Ambassadors are li- 
aisons between Eckerd and the com- 
munity. According to Kitty Rawson, 
Director of PP, "Student Ambassa- 
dors have frequent opportunities to 
develop leadership skills as they man- 
age crowds, problem-solve, partici- 
pate in interviews, and answer ques- 
tions from the general public. They 
may also meet and network with na- 
tional and International figures as well 
as local business leaders." 

Student Solutions is a new ver- 
sion of Peer Educators founded this 
year by Kimberley Schillhammer and 
Joe Roberts. Kimberley states that, 

"Student Solutions is dedicated to Black, PA of Leighton, says, "As an

with a variety of problems." 
The job is challenging but 
it is not without re- 
wards. "It's hard to 
give so much time 
to others when 
it's at the cost 
of your per- 
sonal needs, 
but its a learn- 
ing experience." 
"ODK is a 
national honor so- 
ciety for jun- 
iors and se- 
niors who pos- 
ses leadership 
qualities and 
academic ex- 
cellence," says 

Angle Maltner of ODK. The club invites 
students with academic, athletic, 
service, media, and artistic interests 
to participate. Maitner further 
states, "Serving others has always 
been a part of my life. It's been fun 
this year working with other campus 
leaders who share a concern for the 

InterVarsity Christian Fellowship 
attempts to build a fellowship of EC 
Christians. Members participate in 
small-group Bible study classes and 
large-group meetings and activities. 

These various clubs have the 
added benefit of helping to identify 
students' leadership potential, assist 
them in sharpening their leadership 
skills, rewarding them for their initia- 
tive and Involvement, and thus effec- 
tively helping to prepare them for the 
outside world.

The roster of clubs and orga- 
nizations at Eckerd College includes 
many extreme sports activities. New 
groups are constantly added to this 
list as the student body changes 
from year to year. These extreme 
clubs include the Climbing Club, Ulti- 
mate Disc, the Surf Club, the Swim 
and Water ?o\o Club, and NW Ses- 
sions. Each of these organizations 
allows students to interact through 
physical fitness on different ter- 
rains- both land and water. 

Despite the flatness of the 
state of Florida, the Climbing Club 
allows students who enjoy rock climb- 
ing to participate in this fun and 
challenging sport. This club provides 
both physical and mental challenges 
while building teamwork skills and 
trust within the group. Since there 
are no mountains to climb In St. Pe-

Earth Society is a student 
lub that promotes understanding 
and awareness of environmental 
problems. Molly Rockamann says, 
The focus of Earth Society is not

■he student body more aware of is- 
ues that affect them." Earth Soci- 
ty has worked on such projects as 
'Coke Take It Back" and Global Coali-

Dagohir is based on medieval 
combat and life. Members create 
their own characters and perform in 
mock battles. Brittany Griffin ex- 
plains, "Dagohir gives students the 
opportunity to play out medieval fan- 
tasies ." Battles provide a fun way 
to escape the stresses of life. Simi- 
larly, EC By Night provides enjoyable 
role-playing experiences. By doing so, 
a creative outlet is provided for stu- 
dents' imaginations through live ac-

A Time To Win 

Florida Presbyterian was founded with no intent for 
athletics. Each team emerged from student inter- 
est except for golf, which was a league requirement. 
During the first year at FPC, Judo, fencing, men's 
basketball, and sailing were the 
only sports. In the second year, 
women's basketball, Softball, and 
tennis were added with golf begin- 

The co-ed golf team in 1 964 
practices their drives on the 
lawn in front of the cafeteria, 
still in its original form and 
location. Golf was required for 
the college to compete at the 
intercollegiate level. It dropped 
off the roster for about ten 
years when its first coach left 
and did not resurface until the 
late 70s. While Eckerd 
currently has a men's golf team, 
the women are still struggling 
to get a team together and 
rejoin this sport at Eckerd 
College, photo courtesy of

*yj n\ng in 1962. Men's soccer was 
started in 1969 and intercolle- 
giate women's volleyball in the late 
70s. In 1939 the men's volleyball 
team was established as a club sport by AJ Jo- 
seph, now the team's coach. The most recent addi- 
tion to Eckerd athletics was women's soccer, started 
in 1997. According to Athletic Director Jim Harley 
"We've tried hard to make [athletics at Eckerd] a 
total program and include as many sports as pos- 
sible. The future's unlimited because we have a good 
school and are able to attract good athletes."

In their second-straight winning sea- 
son, finishing up 9-7, the Women's Soccer 
Team took on many strong competitors 
from their division and proved they had the 
talent and determination to win. "We have 
one of the toughest conferencee in Divi- 
sion II. We have to have a team good enough 
to compete with the nationally ranked 
teams. We've stepped up. We've repre- 
sented both Eckerd College and ourselves 
really well," commented Coach Siggi Nagele. 

This year's team was an exciting mix 
of youth and experience. Eighteen new play-

know what to expect with all of the new 
players on the team. The upperclassmen 
helped us a lot. They helped us come to- 
gether as a team," said freshman left half- 
back Monica Carraeco. The new team en- 
ergy and the determination of players and 
coaches alike enabled the team to reach 
new heights. 

The Women's Soccer Team was hon- 
ored this season with two players making 
the Sunshine State Women's All-Confer- 
ence Team. Star forward, Karah Smith, who 

was also voted co-player-of-the-year 
made the first team, and midfielder 
Stephanie Schwobe, made the second 
team with Brooke Lacey as an honorable 
mention. "Overall, it was a great season 
They were a great bunch of girls" saic 
Karah Smith. 

Even though the Women's Soccet 
Team has only been established for a few 
years, they have made leaps and bounds 
toward their ultimate goal - the confer- 
ence championship. Coach Siggi Nagele hac 
this to say about the season, "This was a 
very enjoyable year. The soccer program's 
only gonna get better from here."

The Men's Soccer Team overcame 
adversity and steep competition with a 9- 
& winning season. "\A/e were better than a 
lot of people expected," said freshman for- 
ward Andrew Simmons. Despite injuries, the 
team experienced a complete turnaround 
over prior years. Scoring was up, spirits 
were high, and commitment was top notch. 

"Going into this year, we knew we had 
to score goals, We were able to bring in 
some players that could do that" said 

Coach Jim DiNobile. The team had a lot of 
young talent including top scorers Andrew 
Simmons, Monteiro Santos, and Andree 
bitterer who combined for a total of 2.9 
goals. The freshman and sophomore por- 
tion of the team truly added to the focus 
and determination of the game, while jun- 
iors and seniors brought experience. 

"The conference is damn good, " said 
midfielder Josh Holfeltz. The big names like 
Lynn and Barry make the Sunshine Sate 

Conference an extremely difficult challenge 
in Division II NCAA athletics. Josh added, 
"We played well against those teams." 

Regarding the future of the team, 
Coach Jim DiNobile stated, "Going Into the 
next millennium, with all of the players com- 
ing back, we have a very good foundation."

This year's young Sailing Team did ex- 
tremely well in races. Coach Morten 
Christoffersen claims the young composi- 
tion of the team will be beneficial in up- 
coming years. "Although we have a young 
team, it looks really good for the future 
because most of the other teams we're 
competing against have mostly seniors." 

Freshman Kevin Dooley who had been 
racing for about 10 years, was made skip- 
per of one of the coed teams and he served 
the team well as a first-year student. He 
says that racing is not all that much dif- 
ferent than in high school, except it is a 
lot more "competitive," which happens to 
be his favorite part of the sport. 

This year the team traveled exten- 
sively all over the eastern coast. In order 
to qualify for nationals the team had to 
compete in three regattas, which con- 
sisted of 5-10 schools from Florida. The 
team placed 1 st , 3 rd , and 5 th , respectively. 

The team finished third in District 
Championships held In Wilmington, NC. This 
event has over 25 schools competing from 
Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, South Caro- 
lina, and North Carolina. The team barely 
missed the cutoff (which required the top 
two teams) to qualify for moving on to the 
Atlantic Coast Championship. 

Sophomore Audra Oliver from An- 
napolis, MD, who has been sailing for over 
10 years, believes this year was a good time 
for the team to expand. "This year we seem 
to have higher goals and more closeness 
as a team. As a whole, we're progressing 
to be even more competitive on a national 
level." This will help them in future years.

Looking back on the Women's Cross- 
country season, one word comes to mind, 
"Teamwork." Although each runner was an 
individual and everyone tried her best, it 
took the team as a whole to land them in 
the third slot of the conference for the sec- 
ond year in a row. Every runner on the team 
was dealing with a drive of self-improve- 
ment along with the motivation to create 
good teamwork. Even with different back- 
grounds and different habits, they pulled 
their strengths together and worked to- 
ward their goals. 

They faced a lot of challenges along 
the way including getting to their regional 
meet with their coach in their hearts but 
not in their presence. With the coach sick 
the girls had to build their cooperation and 

teamwork skills as they all took turns dri\ - 
ing to reach their ultimate goal of getting 
to South Carolina. The regional meet 
proved to be a fun and memorable occa- 
sion for the girls. They gained leadership 
skills as well as achieving teamwork and 
maturation. In simple words they had the 
run of things and it took all of them to 
keep the team together. 

From the running, the trips, to the 
memorable moments the season has been 
a good year for the Women's Cross Coun- 
try Team. Next year when they are building 
up a worthy team to face their competi- 
tion it will be the teamwork they estab- 
lished this year that will build the founda- 
tion and will Influence their team spirit.

Eckerd II started their season with 
losses at the SSCVL Qualifier. The team 
fixed their mistakes and came back with 
stunning victories. "We picked ourselves 
up and started playing like a team." said 
James Armstrong, who was named to the 
S5CVL All-Tournament team. "I have never 
played on a team that has progressed this 
far," asserted Mike Pelletier. With enthusi- 
astic attitudes, Eckerd II won a BB Club

Eckerd I and UF. At Nationals in Reno 
Eckerd II competed in some tight matches 
and finished 11 th in Division III. "The team

Of course, coaching plays a large role 
for the team. After being involved with 
Eckerd Men's Volleyball for & years, AJ Jo- 
seph spent his final season with his best

three conference games, two of which came 
as rare back-to-back wins. The girls fought 
hard against many nationally ranked teams 
in the NCAA Division II, the toughest confer- 
ence in the nation. 

"There are no easy wins," said Head

such opponents as Lynn, Florida Tech,

come together and prove their skills on

Eckerd's got game! The up and down 
m the men's basketball season, wound up 
a sturdy 13-10, showing a good range of 
tenacity, talent, and teamwork. The Men's 
Basketball Team climbed as high as fifth 
place in the South Region, as the '99-00 
season reached a boiling point with a 9 
game winning streak that knocked down 

Lynn and St. Leo's College. The record also 
boasted 3 wins in the top ranked confer-

"Definitely a good season," said Head 
Coach Tom Ryan.

position for position, than any otherteam 
In our league," said senior shooting guard

The 1999-2000 Eckerd "Angels" 
Dance Team, a group often dedicated girls, 
vitally enhanced the Eckerd spirit this year. 
Six returning 1999 Angels led a strong 
team possessing levels of talent far ex- 
ceeding squads of the past. 

The team attended NDA dance 
camp, hosted at Eckerd in August, where 
a professional dance instructor choreo- 
graphed five routines and furthered the 
girls' knowledge of dance techniques. They 
participated in all home basketball games 
as well as traveling to Miami to cheer on 
the fighting Tritons against barry. 

It is not all fun and games with these 
Angels... They practiced three to four 

times a week, in addition to strength train- 
ing and aerobics to keep them in shape. 
This year, the girls also participated in a 
5K run and car wash for fundraising. 

Whether it was dancing Janet 
Jackson's IF or Jennifer Lopez, these tal- 
ented girls worked extremeiy hard thisyear. 
Their efforts were recognized through a 
leadership award given to graduating se- 
niors Trista Simpson and Teresa Balog for 
their role in the creation and development 
of the Eckerd College Angels Dance Team. 
This team has come along way in its three 
years as a chartered dub, and this isjust 
the beginning.

"The squad has grown in trust, in 
skill, and in unity," said Senior Captain 
Lauren Elliott. Truly, in '99 - '00, the 
Eckerd College Cheerleaders showed great 
improvement in all areas. The ultra-disci- 
plined cheerleading squad is a shining ex- 
ample of self-made girls. Without the aid 
of a coach, these dedicated young ladies 
made their own practice schedules, did all 
of their own fundraising, and invented all 
their own moves and techniques. Sup- 
ported through the Eckerd community and 
ECOS, the cheerleader organization oper- 
ates basically as a club - a club that is 
quickly rewriting the rules. "They're very in- 
dependent, and it's a really organized 
group," said Staff Sponsor Kemp Talbott. 

Although the cheerleaders had a 
smaller squad this year, they brought more 
spirit to the games. One of the squad's 
major highlights this year was the oppor- 
tunity to open the season at Midnight 
Madness, Eckerd College's very first pep 
rally. "As far as our presence on campus, 
we're getting bigger and bigger" said Jun- 
ior Co-Captain, Jolie Santiago. 

Another highlight this year was the 
opportunity to go for actual Tampa Bay

support from the stands.

buccaneer tryouts. Out of the girls that 
participated, all had a great time and 
gained valuable knowledge and experience. 
Hope Michaels made it to the second 
round of the tryouts. 

The squad started with 11 girls and 
ended up with 9. They averaged having at 
least 6 girls per event at which they ap- 
peared. The cheerleaders made appear- 
ances at most basketball games, and at 
least one game from every other sport. 
"The cheerleaders definitely affected the 

atmosphere and the crowd" said freshman 
cheerleader, Nicole Forbis. 

One of the most challenging aspects 
of the year was bringing together girls of 
different skill levels and unique styles to 
create a unified performance. Each of the 
girls on the squad brought her own special 
contributions to the team. According to 
Captain Lauren Elliott, "Cheers, dances, 
stunts... the whole package is a little 
of everybody."

This Softball season seemed to be 
plagued with bad luck. The team played 52 
games, only 6 of which they won. P\ayer 
Julie Zollmann said, " It was a pretty rough 
season and we had a lot of setbacks." In 
addition, many of the team members ex- 
perienced injuries that prevented them 
from finishing the season. The captain, 
Jackie Toth, mentioned the fact that due 

to the injuries that hampered some pitch- 
ers, the team couldn't compete as effec- 
tively. Toth also stated that, "The fresh- 
men pitchers really stepped up and helped 
a lot with pitching." She believes that the 
team members that stuck through the en- 
tire season cared 100 percent about their 
team and worked their hardest. 

Toth, Zollmann, and the rest of the 

Eckerd College Softball Team have high 
hopes for next year. With freshman re- 
cruits, more experienced players, and a new 
coach, the team should have a much bet- 
ter year.

This year's baseball season con- 
sisted of 50 games of which the Eckerd 
team won 19. One of the reasons for the 
poor performance of the team was due 
to various injuries. Andre Gonza\ee believes 
the injuries of many upperclassmen was a 
set back for the rest of the team players 
as these higher skilled individuals were un- 

able to contribute to the success of the 
remaining games. 

Derek Dion thinks the lack of team- 
work a\zo hindered the groups' perfor- 
mance. He said, " There were a lot of great 
individuals, but no group cohesion."

Baseball Team believed the JV season was

This year the Women's Tennis Team 
pulled out on top with a winning team 
record of 12-10. It was a tough season be- 
cause of the small number of girls on the 
team. They had to accept the fact that 
there was a chance that they would not 
be as good as they had been in previous 
years. They worked very hard to come out 
of the season as winners, and had a blast 
all season long. 

This was a building yearforthe team, 
as almost half the team members were 
freshmen. Dana Guthrie and Alison Knefely 
were the two standing seniors and they 
were accompanied by returning members 
Sabra Lofgren and Jane Tucker. 

To start off the season in the fall, 
they practiced diligently for two hours a 
day, six days a week, with a few tourna- 
ments intermingled with their busy prac- 
tice schedule. In January they continued 
with rigorous training of Intense drilling and 
running. Finally, the best to come was their 
spring season, which was packed with 
matches for the girls. During this time they 
focused hard on Individual goals and how 
each of them could achieve them. 

Alison Knefely said, "The best thing 
about the team, that I will never forget, is 
our unity and how we all worked hard to-

Due to two devastating incidents, 
Eckerd College almost did not have a 
Waterskiing Team this year. On top of \ooe- 
ing their coach last February, the lease on 
a nearby practice lake used by the team 
was terminated by the city in August. 

Led by captain, Andre Janusz, re- 
turning members worked hard to find so- 
lutions to these infringements. They moved 
to McCormick's Ski School shortly after 
the loss of their coach. McCormick's pro- 
vided them with a practice site as well as 
a few coaches to help guide the individual 

With their problems resolved, Janusz 
recruited a number of new members, some 
who had previous competition experience, 
and others who were merely proficient in 
skiing. Once established, the team was able 
to enter a number of competitions and 
begin their season. 

The team competed or practiced ev- 
ery weekend at their site at McCormick's 
and was able to place fairly well, overall, in 
their conferencee. Despite their rocky 
start, the student members of the 
Waterskiing Team pulled it together to see 
that the sport they love so dearly would 
not come to an end at Eckerd College.

The Rugby Team, still a club sport, was 
a part of the U5A Rugby Union for the first 
time this year. The Union consists of six 
teams, the top two of which go on to play 
the top two Georgia Conference teams. 

When Rugby first got started at 
Eckerd in 1997 there was a good turnout 
and the players were willing to invest the 
time and effort into learning this complex 
game. Since then, both the players' dedica- 
tion and the spectators' support have 

Captain Rob Fettman had some prob- 
lems getting enough players, and a lot of 
the new team members had never played 
rugby before, so learning the game was a 
continual proceee. Rugby is a violent sport, 
but as team president and fly half, Ross 
Pry says, "That just goes with the game." 

This was also the first year of com- 
petition for the Roller Hockey Team. There

has been a roller hockey club for four years, 
but this year they competed with other col- 
leges as part of the Southeast Region In- 
ter-Collegiate Roller Hockey League. 

Although many of the players had 
never played at an organized level, the team 
did quite well. There was an incredible 
amount of support for the team at their 

games held at the PC Igloo in Ellington. 

Roller hockey, not as violent as pro- 
fessional ice hockey, can still get pretty 
rough. Tony Perez recalls getting kicked in 
the back once while down. Many of this year's 
team members were seniors, but it is hoped 
the "team will continue in upcoming years.

Intramural sports at Eckerd College 
were very successful this year. The roster 
included volleyball, football, soccer, ulti- 
mate frisbee, Softball, and basketball. This 
year saw an average turnout of partici- 
pants. There were about 6 to 10 teams per 
sport. According to the assistant direc- 
tor of campus activities, Patrick Kelly, 
Eckerd had a good amount of participa- 
tion compared with other schools. "We're 
competitive, but not overly aggressive." The 
healthy spirit of competition is one of the 
program's main focuses.

one of the bases in an effort to get his Dante opponent 
out. Gamma managed to barely defeat Dante in this 
game with a score of 20- 19. photo by Jessica Green 

Although there were some rough 
spots with team forfeiting, each sport had 
its own highlights. For Volleyball, Mill House 
won the recreational championship and Nu 
won the competitive championship. Omega 
took football, Delta won at soccer, and Nu 
struck again, winning at Softball. The rec- 
reational basketball championship went to 
Delta, and Omega won the competitive 
basketball championship. 

Despite a number of fights and con- 
troversies, Josie Browning, intermural co- 
ordinator, had this to say about the com- 
petition of the year, "Everyone had a fun 
time, which is basically the purpose of in- 
tramurai sports here at Eckerd."

We are here to study, to discover our futures, and 
to find ourselves. Though this common tie is much 
the same today as it was in the past, other ele- 
ments of Eckerd's academic structure have expe- 
rienced vast changes over the 
years. Take for example the grad- 
ing system; originally students re- 
ceived grades like H, S+, S, S-, and 
U. In 1 968, a new simplified sys- 
tem with grades of high pass 
(HP), pass (P), and fail (F) was 
introduced. Yet again 1 976 an- 
other change occurred which resulted in our cur- 
rent grading system of A, B, C, D, and F. We are all 
here to learn, and the knowledge we obtain from 
our classes, in combination with our experiences, 
shapes our lives. As time passes, we must cherish 
our memories at Eckerd. We change and learn dur- 
ing ouryears in college and emerge as unique indi- 
viduals prepared to reach for our highest goals.

Academics at Eckerd College have not al- 
ways been divided into collegia as they are now. 
When the college was first founded, it had the tra- 
ditional three-fold division system. This system 
divided the faculty into the Humanities, Natural 
Sciences, and Social Sciences. 

In 1973, the faculty voted on a new cat- 
egorization for academia at Eckerd. This new 
system broke the faculty into five collegia: Natu- 
ral Sciences, Behavioral Sciences, Letters, Cre- 
ative Arts, and Comparative Cultures. A sixth 
collegium was also included: the Foundations 
Collegium. According to Dean of Faculty Lloyd 
Chapin, this sixth addition was intended to, 

" What is the most 
important thing 
you have learned 
at Eckerd.." 

"group the faculty by the methodology they used 
in their teaching and scholarship." It was estab- 
lished for the first year students as a means of 
breaking them into collegiate academics. It in- 
cludes Autumn Term, mentorship, Western Heri- 
tage, skills development, and freshman bridge 
seminars during Winter Term. 

The Collegial system at Eckerd has been in 
effect for the past 27 years, being one of the only 
systems in its class among colleges and universi- 
ties. It adds to the unique education students 
receive at Eckerd, focusing on creating a body of 
liberal arts students who are free thinkers.

What exactly does a liberal arts education 
mean? It means students are getting one of the 
moat well-rounded and diverse educations avail- 
able. There is a core curriculum, but the curricu- 
lum here at Eckerd is very different from that at 
most other colleges and universities. Perspectives, 
required classes like Western Heritage and Quest 
for Meaning, intensive short term courses, and 
semesters abroad, all offer students the oppor- 
tunity to broaden their horizons. 

Many classes at Eckerd are not typical lec- 
ture classes. Students are offered courses in 
which the professors are creative in their teach- 
ing processes. Interesting classes are offered 

throughout each semester and often differ in per- 
spective from that of the traditional lecture. 

Winter Term is an excellent way to learn 
through first hand experience. Students have the 
opportunity to go abroad during the month of 
January. Traveling off campus proves to be an un- 
forgettable and valuable experience. However, the 
students who decide to remain on campus for Win- 
ter Term also have great opportunities for a unique 
learning experience. The Leadership and Self Dis- 
covery Practicum forfreshmen isjust one example. 
This class, through personality tests and mental 
and physical challenges, helps students to work 
better as a team and as individuals. 

Many classes also take field trips, a prac- 
tice usually unheard of in a college course. West- 
ern Heritage, for example, takes students to the 
museums of downtown St. Petersburg, provides 
opportunities to explore the campus, and brings 
in a variety of interesting speakers. Many natural 
science courses venture to places like Boyd Hill 
and Fort DeSoto. Autumn Term classes take snor- 
keling trips and excursions to the beach. 

So what is liberal arts? It is the freedom to 
learn in a creative environment and to take fun, 
informative courses that prepare students to lead 
well-rounded lives.

Eckerd College provides many activities for 
the people of St. Petersburg and the students of 
Eckerd College to attend together. 

The annual Times Festival of Reading took 
place this year on November 13 and 14, 1999. This 
festival provides an opportunity for Eckerd Col- 
lege students and the local community to meet 
and hear local and national writers. This event also 
gives faculty authors and the school itself expo- 
sure in the wider community. Programs such as 
the Senior College, Eckerd College Search and Res- 
cue, and the Program for Experienced Learners 
were all represented this year. The festival hosted 
15,000 people over the course of two days. This 
huge turnout was due to the publicity the event 
recieved in the local media. Ross Bannister says, 
"We appreciate the support of the St. Pete Times 
by coming out to Eckerd College." 

On March 4 and 5, 2000, Eckerd College 
hosted the second annual Discover Native 
America. Due to its popularity last year, the event 
was expanded over two days this year, rather than 
just one. Over 20,000 people wandered around 
the Eckerd campus, observing and partaking in the 
celebration of Native American civilization and cul- 
ture. While Native American celebrations are com- 
mon in the West, the Eckerd College pow-wow was 
a novelty in Florida due to the smaller represen- 
tation of tribes in the area. It was a free cultural 

experience for all people In the community. "This 
event opens the door to real Native American cul- 
ture that we don't often get a chance to see," 
said Bannister. 

A third special event that Eckerd College 
provides for the students and the community is 
the Festival of Hope. This is hosted by the entire 
senior class as part of Quest for Meaning. At the 
festival, seniors are able to share their service 
experiences with their fellow students as well as 
the local community. This year's Festival of Hope 
on November 17, 1999 brought together a total of 
&& groups representing organizations such as 
Friends of Strays, PASS (Producing Academically 
Successful Students), Leah's Dream {produces 
playgrounds for handicaps), and Fall ball. In see- 
ing the action taken by the seniors it could be 
hoped that the underclassmen and public would 
see the opportunities that are available for any- 
one Interested in serving others. 

By opening its gates to such events as the 
Festival of Reading, Discover Native America, and 
the Festival of Hope, Eckerd offers both students 
and the people of St. Petersburg a unique oppor- 
tunity for learning, something that not many col- 
leges provide. Through these events Eckerd also 
makes itself one with the community within which 
it lies.

"Learning never stops, ivheths 
You don't get to ■: j 
your own responsib 



Everyone has different ways of coping with 
everyday stresses. One of the hardest things to 
deal with is balancing academics with everything 
else in life. When is it okay to say "party time?" "Is 
it really necessary to study that much?" "What if 
I just wait one more day?" "I'm sure I'll get to it 
tomorrow." These are all thoughts and questions 
of the average college student. During their col- 
lege experience, students develop different ways 
of coping with stress. 

Molly Kockamann, a freshman, describes her 
stress philosophy, "To a certain extent I try not 
to stress myself out too much because I know I 
am doing the best I can at the moment, and any- 
way, what is one test grade really going to mean 
ten years from now?' 'dome students take Molly's 
approach; others take the opposite extremes. 
Many freshman learn after the first semester of 
partying and celebrating Independence that col- 
lege is a place you actually go to learn. A fellow 
freshman, Jesse Stewart, says, "I admit to not 
having a balance between work and play. This first 
semester has been a lot of play for me but I plan 
on trying to attain that balance in the future." 

Some students, however, choose to stress them- 
selves out over school and wait in anxiety for the 
semester to come to an end. 

Students find ways of dealing with stress 
and relaxing that fit their individual needs. To some 
students a night of drinking helps them to cope 
well for the week. It all depends on the Individual's 
Interests. Many students find artistic or athletic 
outlets as good ways of relieving stress and deal- 
ing with academic pressure. Bridgett vonHoldt 
says, "I play the guitar and walk along the sea wall 
when I get too stressed out over my academic 
responsibilities." Bridgett is one of the many stu- 
dents who use music and nature to get away from 
the pressures of college life. Luke Cassingham 
states, "Meditation helps me find Inner relaxation 
which in turn helps me cope with any stress I might 
encounter at Eckerd. I also teach jujitsu, which 
gives me another wonderful way to relieve stress 
and help others do the same." Battling the di- 
lemma of work and play is fought with many dif- 
ferent techniques, each technique as unique as 
the student.

One of the most valuable of all the Eckerd 
College resources is the Career Service Center. It 
provides a number of tools that can be helpful to 
all students, regardless of their year at Eckerd. 
Resume workshops, volunteer and careerfairs, and 
career-focused events are among the opportuni- 
ties that the center affords. The center also pub- 
lishes the monthly pamphlet, Career Focus. Ca- 
reer Focus informs students of jobs and intern- 
ships available in the community. Some students 
first become aware of the center and its offer- 
ings due to the Career Focus pamphlet. Career 
Services is a place every student should visit and 
discoverthe many resources waiting to be utilized. 

Career Services can help freshman find a 
work study job that fits their particular needs. 
Rebecca Cherkin, was glad to find the help she 
needed at Career Services. She stated, "Career 
Services kindly helped me to find a work study job 
I would enjoy and that would fit my schedule." Work 
study Introduces many students to the work field 
for the first time and helps them develop good 
work habits needed throughout life. 

For students who have the desire to get in-j 
volved in the community. Career Services can place] 
students in volunteer work that fits their experi-i 
ence and interests. Crystal vonHoldt, a sophomore, I 
works at the local Friends of Strays and the Tampa 
Aquarium doing volunteer work. She says, "The 
Career Service Center helped set me up in volun- 
teer work that would give me a good Idea about 
my possible career choices and what I would enjoy 
doing as a career." Experience is the best way for 
students to discover their true calling. 

For upperclassmen, a variety of invaluable 
resources are available at the Career Service Cen- 
ter. Graduate school and career planning help is 
undoubtedly the most sought after of all help by 
the upperclassmen. Jennie Palm, a junior, explains, 
"I plan on using the center's resources next year, 
when I begin to plan my career future." Career Ser- 
vices offers help In resume writing, graduate school 
applications, and even does mock Interviews. These 
resources are of great help to all seniors who must 
answer the Infamous question, What next?

A Time To live 

From year to year, the student body at Eckerd is 
constantly changing - freshmen come in, seniors 
graduate and people transfer in and out. Taking 
into account all this change, it is hard to see the 
similarities between the student 
body of today and the student 
body of the 60s, 70's, and <30's. 
In many ways we are very differ- 
ent, the technology that we use 
is leaps and bounds ahead of 
what used to be available to stu- 
j dents. Many things have remained 

the same, such as the sense of belonging felt by 
students. This is due to the fact that Eckerd is 
such a small school that it is easy for students 

Paul Eppling caries his 

academic diuision banner at his 
graduation processional. He 
went on to do a number of 
steel sculptures around the St 
Petersburg area. One of his 
works is a lizard, which can be 
viewed on northbound 1-275.

Human Brings 

As a Liberal Arts institution, the 
basic mission statement of Eckerd Col- 
lege, according to the course catalogue 
is, " to aid the personal development of 
humane and competent persona of all 
ages to learn, lead, and serve in the lo- 
cal, national, and even international 
realms of a pluralistic and Increasingly 
complex society." This primary objective 
is evident in all areas of the Eckerd cur- 
riculum but even more so in the Behav- 
ioral Sciences Collegium. Majors falling 
under this collegium strive to give stu- 
dents a well-rounded understanding of 
human beings such that they can study, 
interact with, or lead them effectively. 

In each of their respective classes 
management professors Donna Trent 
and Ed Grasso stress the interrelated 
aspects of the different majors of this 
collegium and the overall benefits of a 
liberal arts education. They feel that all 
areas of study can be beneficial to the 
development of these majors. 

In her Organizational Behavior and 
Leadership class, Donna Trent is always 
pleased to have students who are ma- 
joring in areas otherthan management; 
such as sociology and psychology. She 
believes that students of different

majors add a new dimension to her 
classes. She says, "I find having stu- 
dents from other majors in OB enhances 
the course greatly, as they know the 
theories in their fields in more depth, and 
hence bring a critical component to the 
course and get the management ma- 
jors to think more closely about the rel- 
evance of theory and research to prac- 
tice'.' At the same time she feels that 
by taking classes such as OB, students 
who are not management majors can 
gain a better understanding of how all 
that they learn through research can 
be applied in an organizational setting. 

Courses such as those in the Be- 
havioral Sciences Collegium help stu- 
dents gain a better understanding of 
human beings when combined with the 
liberal arts mission of the school. It is 
through the encouragement of profes- 
sors who see the advantage in a broad 
education, which widens ones horizons, 
that students can gain the skills they 
will need to go out into the world and 
make it a better place for us all.

personal vs. Global p^rsp^etiv^s 

The Letters Collegium includes 
majors that share "an interest in hu- 
man beings, past and present." Its fo- 
cus is on "the study of who we are by 
looking at what we are doing and the 
works and Institutions created by our 
predecessors." One way In which this is 
done is by looking at different subjects 
from both personal and global perspec- 
tives. Many professors utilize a combi- 
nation of literary works and history 
textbooks to convey these perspectives 
to their students. 

Frofessor Andrew Chittick's His- 
tory of Modern China course is an ex- 
ample of this. He uses a Chinese His- 
tory text in conjunction with a number 
of literary works written by ethnic Chi- 
nese writers. These literary works give a 
firsthand perspective on the events and 
people about which the text speaks. He 

says, "I like to use literary works and au- 
tobiographies by native authors in my 
classes because I think it is important 
for students to get a sense of how 
people thought and lived, how they de- 
scribed their world, In past times and 
other places. History texts can only give 
snippets of such Information; a novel 
submerges you in another worldview." 

Professor Chittick uses this 
teaching method not only for history, 
but also in a number of other courses-- 
working together art, philosophy, reli- 
gion, and literature. By taking both a 
look at the history of a particular sub- 
ject from a global perspective and com- 
bining that with the more personalized 
feel of a novel, students can gain a bet- 
ter sense of that which they learn in the 
Letters Collegium.

Environments] and gender issues 
are very important in today's society. 
Senior Environmental Studies and Wo- 
men's and Gender Studies majors work 
to make a difference In these areas. 

Environmental Studies majors 
gain knowledge about the natural envi- 
ronment and the relationship of the hu- 
man being to this environment. These 
students choose to do a variety of 
things after graduation, concentrating 
in many areas. Through her studies, Olof 
Soebech realized that environmental 
problems have no clear answers or easy 
solutions. Conor Petren completed an 
internship at Boyd Hill Nature Park, 
Working on the Backyard Conservation 
Program Series, which educates adults 
about making their own backyards envi- 
ronmentally friendly. Environmental 
Studies seniors will definately make a 
difference, regardless of the area In 
which they choose to focus. 

Women's and Gender Studies ma- 
jors receive an Interdisciplinary educa- 
tional experience focusing on the many 
factors that affect women around the 
world. They take courses regarding 
women's experiences In the arts, politics, 
history, and much more. Nevin Marshall 
became interested in Women's and Gen- 
der Studies because of his plan to get 
involved in human right's policies. He said, 
"I believe it is necessary, especially when 
dealing with human rights, to have knowl- 
edge about the potential effects on the 
different sexes. It is Important not to 
Implement policies that benefit just one 
sex" Women's and Gender Studies ma- 
jors are Interested in helping those of- 
ten Ignored or degraded in many societ- 
ies, something which is very admirable.

Comparative Cultures 

Cxehang^ programs 

Living and studying abroad can be an exciting, chal- 
lenging, and Invaluable learning experience for anyone. "The 
[Comparative Culture] Collegium serves as both a window and 
a gateway to the cultures of the world.. ." (Eckerd Catalog). 
Though Eckerd College actively encourages students to travel 
and study abroad in general, Comparative Cultures is espe- 
cially Intent on providing this exposure to the students of 
their collegium. 

The Collegium of Comparative Cultures seeks to pro- 
mote an understanding of the breadth of human cultural 
achievements through languages, area studies, anthropol- 
ogy, International business, and related disciplines. And, what 
better means of gaining 'cultural understanding than through 
living and studying abroad? Most majors in this collegium 
spend at least one semester, or a whole year, abroad study- 
ing in one of the many exchange programs offered through 
International Education or outside organizations. 

One always dreams about traveling and living abroad, 
but when it actually comes down to taking the final step, the 
whole thing can seem a bit daunting. 

Nicole St. Hilaire, a Spanish and Business Management 
major, spent a year abroad, In Seville, Spain, submerging her- 
self in the Spanish language and culture. After seven years 
of studying Spanish grammar and vocabulary, she was ready 
to make the move and put her knowledge to practice. Before 
actually leaving though, Nicole remembers, "I had mixed feel- 
ings about going to live with people I had never met 
before. ..speaking Spanish all the time." 

Sometimes, not speaking the native language can prove 
to be a fun experience In itself. As explained by Alyssa Chazey, 
an anthropology major who spent some time in Quebec City, 
Canada, "Quebec City is all French but seeing that I didn't 
speak a word of French it was all Interesting" Hot speaking 
the native language is just one of the many issues students 
come up against when living in a new environment. 

"Public transportation was hard to get used to," says 
Danielle Englehart, a Spanish major who spent last spring in 
Costa Rica. Danielle also remembers, "I was excited, but scared 
[about going] because I never knew anybody there." After 
studying and living in a place though, you eventually settle in 
and adjust to the new environment and lifestyle. Most people 
make friends, sometimes even friends for life, others meet 
the man of their dreams (or not) or even make Important life 
decisions as Danielle did. "[Being In Costa Rica] made me 
realize that I want to continue studying Spanish and prob- 
ably live in Central America" she says, "I loved it that much." 

Studying abroad can be a challenge, but it can also be 
an eye opening experience; one most people will never forget. 
As this year's Comparative Cultures graduating class de- 
parts , many of these students will take with them the ever- 
lasting memories of their various experiences abroad.

6ek^rd §ei£ntists: flow will 
th^y affect our future? 

With the dawning of the new millenium, it has become 
more and more apparent that science will play a bigger role in 
our lives than ever before. With the application of new tech- 
nology, creating things not even imagined twenty years ago 
(miracle drugs like Viagra and genetic engineering like Dolly, 
just to name a few), science is reaching a new height in the 
twenty-first century. Undoubtedly the students of today will 
play a big part in these new advancements. Who knows, a 
student here at Eckerd may discover the cure for cancer or 
create something to make everyone's lives much easier. 

There are 110 Natural Science majors in the graduat- 
ing class this year. These seniors have a variety of options 
available to them concerning their future and they are work- 
ing hard to ensure they make the choices that are in their 
best interests. Some of these students, such as Kendra 
Brown, a biology major, will pursue further studies. Others 
are waiting to make a decision about their future plans. Katie 
Moor, a computer science major, has received the Physical 
Sciences Consortium that will fund her doctoral pursuit for 
the next six years. 

The graduates have a w\de range of opinions on the 
advancement that science will make in the future. Moor says, 
" I foresee 'smart houses' becoming very popu\ar. In 'smart 
houses' every appliance in the house can be attached to a 
network and controlled from everywhere the owner has a net- 
work access." James Christensen, a pre-med and philosophy 
major, believes that, "Most diseases we know today, includ- 
ing cancer and heart disease will be cured through genetic 
engineering and gene replacement therapy." 

The future is wide open for all the senior science ma- 
jors and we will watch and wish them luck as they help to 
make our world a better, healthier place for everyone.

'Doable Majors 

Is Twice the Major, Twice the Cost? 

V v v-,v ■• 

Although being a double major 
does not directly include extra course 
fees, the time, effort and financial costs 
of pursuing a double major add up.Yearly 
tuition fees cover up to ten courses and 
one short term. Whereas the average 
student takes four courses per semes- 
ter, double majors often take their maxi- 
mum five courses per semester, or worse 
yet four in one semester and six in the 

Depending on the courses taken, 
four per semester can prove quite a 
challenge, six is a recipe for stress. One 
double major stated, "Just when I feel 
like I'm getting caught up with one ma- 
jor, the other shows up with more work." 
Undoubtedly, double majors need to in- 
corporate good time management skills 
to stay at pace with their studies, es- 
pecially when a social life and extracur- 
ricular activities are added. 

Additional costs enter the picture 

through means such as course over- 
loads, eummer classes and those oh so 
exorbitant book expenses. How does 
$523.59 sound for one semester's 
books? Crazy? Unbelievable? Well, that 
was what one double major had to pay 
for books for the past spring semester. 
Surprisingly this may be an average book 
expense for a double major. 

If for some reason, a double ma- 
jor can not fit all of his or her courses 
into the school year, they may be re- 
quired to take summer classes. Not only 
does this bear the downfall of taking 
away the student's summer, but it also 
requires forking out additional dough. 

While it is possible to be a double 
major and not pay any additional tu- 
ition fees, the costs to ones health and 
well being, as well as, the cost for addi- 
tional books and supplies, does add up 
quite quickly.

Good Istiek Graduates! 


Living with p£ts 

Eckerd stands apart 
from most colleges in that 
students can have just 
about any kind of pet they 
want living on campus with 
them. In any dorm, residents 
can have a pet, as long as it 
is small enough to live in a 
cage. This includes every- 
thing from fish, to birds, to 
hamsters and gerbils, and 
even snakes or iguanas. 

If a student owns a 
larger pet, such as a dog or 
cat, that they wish to keep 
with them on campus, they 
must live in one of the two 
designated pet dorms. These 
are Kappa and Zeta com- 
plexes. This can be a down- 
fall because it limits the 
choices the pet-owners have 
for living space. They can not 
upgrade to the nicer dorms 
such as Nu and Omega. 

Living with pets can be 
nice, but it takes a lot of time 
and responsibility. For the 
busy student, it may not be 
the best idea. Making time 
for walks, feedings, and vet 

appointments amidst a 
crazy class and co-curricu- 
lar schedule can be quite dif- 
ficult. It is worth it though 
for many students because 
the rewarding love they re- 
ceive in return from their 
pets is irreplacable. 

For those who do not 
own a 'pet, but live in a pet 
dorm or have a roommate 
with a pet, pets on campus 
can cause problems, 'dome 
find that their pet-owning 
roommate does a lousy job 
taking care of their dog or 
cat. Out of concern for the 
animal those individuals wind 
up picking upthe slack. Bark- 
ing and meowing are other 
complaints made by some 
non-pet owners. 

Despite its downfalls, 
the freedom to have pets on 
campus is a privilege that 
Eckerd students should ap- 
preciate, as many schools do 
not allow any form of pet, big 
or small, to reside in the

The year 2000 was greeted with celebrations across the globe, including a fantastic fireworks dispiat 
Eiffel Tower and religious ceremonies in Jerusalem. Looking back on 1999, we see a year filled with hope for 
the future, but also a year plagued by war and natural disaster. The conflict in Serbia kept the world on the 
edge of its seat, while earthquakes, tornadoes and winter storms focused our attention on international 
relief efforts. In 1999-2000, we also said goodbye to some of the world's most beloved celebrities including 
John F. Kennedy Jr., Walter Payton and Charles Schulz. 



The century came to a close with an upsurge of

Pretty much anyone who wants to live 
in a substance free dorm can do so... as long 
as they remain substance free while they live 
there. Generally, people who choose to live in 
a substance free dorm want to live comfort- 
ably; free from the distractions of an envi- 
ronment rife with alcohol. Some base their 
decisions on their allergies, others on their 
aversion to the horrible smell of smoke, and 
others simply on their desire to avoid seeing 
people drunk or trashed. 

The atmosphere around a substance 
free dorm tends to be more low key, quiet, 
cleaner, and lets students do what they have 
come to do, whether it is to study, relax, or 
come home to get some rest. "You don't have 
to worry about beer bottles, crap on the 
floors, and it's certainly not as noisy," said 

Bethany Elliot, a resident of Gershwin. 

Now the question is, if you don't do sub- 
stances, such as alcohol, drugs, or smoking, 
why stay in a non substance-free dorm 1 ? 
People generally said that as long as it isn't 
around them, they don't have a problem with 
it. Erica Peth said, "I tend to lead a sub- 
stance free life, but I don't need to specify 
living that way. I am so determined myself 
to be substance free, that it doesn't mater 
who I surround myself with." 

Some would say that it is more fun be- 
ing in a substance dorm than in a substance 
free dorm. You get to see free, live entertain- 
ment of drunkenness in the convenience and 
comfort, of your own dorm. This, of course, is 
open to debate

fl Blessing, or a Cur§£? 

One of the hardest things for freshman to get used to 
during their first year at college is living with someone in a 
small room. Your roommate may bejust like you or quite dif- 
ferent from you. Whatever the case — you have to live with 
someone and all their habits. Housing has the very hard job 
of pairing students together based on limited information. 
The students whom are paired together may turn out to be 
best friends for life or not get along one bit. 

Theresia Buchholz, a sophomore, met a friend in West- 
ern Heritage her freshman year. During the second semes- 
ter that year, they moved in together and although she has 
since moved, Theresia has remained great friends with her 
old roommate. Another student, Amy Barrios, currently a 
sophomore, has kept the same roommate she was paired 
with her freshman year. Amy and her roommate are best 
friends and share many of the same interests. There are 
many students who are paired with someone they have a lot 
in common with and the friendships they create can last a 

Some students, on the other hand, are not so lucky. 
One student, who wished to remain anonymous, says, " My 
roommate experience was a nightmare." The two students 
actually came from the same high school and choose to at- 
tend the same school but grew apart after living together. 
Now they rarely even talk. Other students have had incidents 
with roommates involving fighting, stealing, and rudeness. 

These are but some of the ups and downs of having a 
college roommate, proving that they can be both a blessing 
and a curse. Whatever the case though, roommates are an 
essential part of the college 'experience!

Unique Ways to 

When Eckerd students arrive at college, 
their rooms are pre- designed. All of the 
rooms look the same and have the same fur- 
niture. . . that is, until the students move in. 
The decoration and arrangement of each 
room blooms into an extension of the Inhab- 
itants. How many different ways can two 
desks, two dressers, and two beds be rear- 
ranged in an 11 x 16 dorm room? 

Students have come up with a solu- 
tion to these cookie-cutter rooms. They make 
their rooms their own through unique styles 
of decoration. Posters are a standard, first 
step into the personalization of the rooms. 
From that stems any number of two-dimen- 
sional wall decorations. Beer boxes, photos, 
paintings, articles and ads from magazines, 
and (for those willing to repaint at the end 
of the year) flat-out repainting have been 
some basic exhibits of the next level beyond 
the typical poster. A common way to cover 
walls, ceilings, or windows is to make use of 
tapestries. An alternate to actual repaint- 
ing is to mix tide with water and use that as 
paint. When black lights are put on these 
designs, they come to life. One roommate 
pair in Henderson took glow-in-the-dark peel 
away paint and splattered the walls, com- 
bined with a black light; this lended an awe- 
some effect. 

Lighting can make or break a room. Very 
few rooms make use of the bright, institu- 
tional lights provided in the dorms. People get 
hallogen lamps, colored light bulbs, and black 
lights to make the rooms more cozy. The fix-

tures that house these lights range from 
floor lamps to hand-made desk lamps, and 
reflect the personalities of the owners. 
Christmas lights are also a big hit with 
Eckerd students. They come in purple, blue, 
white, and, the ever classic, multicolored. 

Many students choose to just rear- 
range the furniture. Lofting the beds is a 
typical "first step." People have been known 
to put the mattresses on the f loor a nd ma ke 
use of the bed frames as tables, or to bunk 
the beds. They've built lofts and added 
couches and chairs, but, of course, it's all up 
to the creative geniuses that live in each 

room on campus

The seven primary 
complexes on campus were 
originally built as temporary 
housing, despite this, they 
are still as they were forty 
years ago. Oberg is the one 
exception to this. After be- 
ing burnt down last year, it 
was remodeled, with suite- 
like rooms on the eecond 
f\oorand regular dorm rooms 
on the first floor. Similar 
renovations are being plann- 
ed for the rest of the dorms 
on campus, starting with 
Kappa and Zeta. 

before this can hap- 
pen, there needs to be an- 
other new building to house 
the students that would be 
displaced with the closing of 
a complex. The plan is to build 
a building with similarities to 
Nu and Omega. This new 
building will be raised within 
the next three years. While 
the location has not yet been 
finalized, both Dean Miller 
and Myles bowman have ex- 
pressed interest in the area 
on the reverse side of Zeta 
Pond. Dean Miller explained 
that this is the most solid 
spot, and it will not obstruct 

too many existing views. 

The interior construc- 
tion of the remaining com- 
plexes will be variations of 
Oberg. More variety will pro- 
vide students with a greater 
number of options when de- 
ciding where they want to live. 
There will be three different 
levels of living. The first will 
include a lot of common 
space, pretty much the way 
the dorms are now. This is 
important because, accord- 
ing to Dean Tom Miller, 
"Freshmen cannot live in 
something like Omega. They 
need the community of the 
other dorms to meet as 
many people as possible their 
first year here." 

The next two levels of 
living become less community 
oriented and more private. 
The second level would be 
similarto upstairs Oberg and 
Nu. The third level would be 
apartment style, like Omega. 
There will also be variety in 
the reconstruction of the 
complex lounges. Combina- 
tions and variations are the 
focus of all new construction.

The Eckerd campus is full of secret 
nooks and crannies in which students can 
study. While studying in your room may be 
the most practical and convenient, there are 
a lot of distractions in the dorm: phone calls, 
friends stopping by, and procrastination 
chores. "I can't study in my room" Jennifer 
Stafford explains, "It just helps to get out 
of the room where I can't get distracted. It 
also helps to have someone else to force you 
to focus on your work"

One place that is good to get away 
from dorm distraction is Zeta Beach. There 
is rarely anyone there, and the only distur- 
bance is the occasional passing of a boat or 
a fire ant crawling over your book. The entire 
beach goes under at high tide though, so this 
spot is not always ideal. Other study spots 
outside are the Kappa pavilion and the ham- 

Some people find that off campus pro- 
vides great studying as well. "I study at Waffle 

House" says Michael Szilagyi. "Eating helps 
and no one can come In my room and try to 
play video games while I'm studying." 

Most students claim that they study 
in the library, while others work in their rooms 
or the complex lounges. The Brown Hall and 
Commuter Lounges seem to very popular as 
well. Each student seems to find his or her 
own perfect study hideaway on or off cam-

©0£§ Kappa f)£S£rV£ its Imputation? 

Does Kappa deserve its reputation? 
What reputation, you might ask. That is what 
most people are asking these days. There are 
stories of Kappa and what it used to be. One 
Kappa resident explains, "Everytime I tell 
someone I live in Kappa I get a look as if I'm a 
dirty hippie" But is it really the notorious 
complex of sex, drugs and rock and roll? 

"Not anymore. It used to be something, 
but now it's nothing," another Kappa resident 
claims as she remembers back to the years 
when Kappa stood out as a free-spirited 
complex apart from the others circling 
Edmunson Drive. 

A lot of students moved to Kappa 
thinking it was something that it was not. 
One resident said, "People are more uptight 
[in Kappa] than anywhere else. People come 
here thinking it would be awesome because 
of all the drum circles and parties and to- 
getherness, and in reality, it sucks." 

On the other hand, some residents still 
love it. The pet factor carries a lot of weight 
as far as who decides to live in Kappa. One 
student didn't want to move into Kappa be- 
cause of the so-called reputation, but she 

wanted her cat on campus. "I was willing to 
live here to have my cat with me, and now 
that I know the reputation is false, I love it 

Not all of the reputation of rebellious 
hippies is false; it is just that a majority of 
the residents in Kappa tend to care a lot 
about what is happening to them on campus 
and in the world. They are the ones to speak 
out and voice their disagreements to the ad- 
ministration. This gives Kappa a rebellious air, 
but it is only a few select people who really 
do go up against the administration. 

There used to be a Kappa community 
that was unlike any other complex. Unfortu- 
nately, the administration struck Kappa hard 
with rules and regulations this year. 

The Kappa community has diminished 
and any reputation that once existed does 
not any longer. There are still the typical 
"Kappa People," but there are also a lot of 
different students as well. With Oberg being 
redone, that building has brought in many 
non-kappa people, which has contributed to 
the disappearance of the wonderful commu- 
nity that once was.

It's Cold In Hmz 

"It's cold in here!" This is a very com- 
mon phrase heard from the mouths of the 
students at Eckerd College. One would think 
it strange considering the location of the 
school in St. Petersburg, Florida, but it is 
true. The level at which the air conditioning 
is set in the dorms, as well as many of the 
classrooms, is so low that many students 
find themselves dressing in sweats and 
sweaters in their rooms and packing as if 
they were headed to the arctic circle when 
they are actually only going to class. Af- 
ter a few classes, the climate sensitive 
student learns to bring a sweater or sweat 
shirt in addition to books. Dressing can be 
quite the hassle when you need to wear one 
thing outside and another indoors. 

Facilities tries to keep all the build- 
ings on campus set to around 72 degrees, 
a setting considered to be a mutually 
agreeable temperature. This setting tends 
to fluctuate however as facilities get calls 
asking for the air to be turned up or down. 
According to Director of Facilities Eddie 
Henderson, they get calls all day asking 
them to adjust the temperature in one 
building or another. The number of these 
calls requesting warmer vs. colder settings 
tends to equal out because, "just as some- 

one calls to get the air turned down, some- 
one else will call to get it turned up" says 
Henderson. The other uncontrollable fac- 
tor faced by facilities' attempt at main- 
taining an agreeable temperature in the 
buildings is the habit of students to open 
doors and windows. When this is done, the 
system tends to shut off or function in- 
correctly because of the effect the out- 
side conditions have on the thermostat. 

Facilities have a computer system 
to controi the temperature in the aca- 
demic buildings, but in the dorms this sys- 
tem only allows them to turn the air on or 
off. Here the thermostats can be con- 
trolled by a device at the end of the hall- 
way, but this is something few students 
seem to realize. In the newer dorms, stu- 
dents do have more controi over the tem- 
perature of their rooms. Oberg and Omega 
have individual thermostats in each room 
or apartment unit. This is something that 
the school hopes to implement in all resi- 
dential buildings as it renovates the dorms 
over the next few years. Until that time 
comes, however, it will be a continuous 
battle between those who like it cold and 
those who like it hot!

Nightirw is Tim£ to party 

Friday and Saturday nights were the 
big party nights on the Eckerd College cam- 
pus. Music could be heard from as early as 
7:OOpm, setting the trend for the night. The 
sea wall, dorm rooms, Nu dorms, the pavil- 
ion, the Hough center, and Omega were all 
possible venues for parties held on campus. 
Since the recent change in school policy took 
effect, that is no dorm parties in the actual 
dorms, Nu dorms and the other listed places 
became popular weekend hot spots. 

The Hough Student Center and Fox Hall 
were the usual sites for the official complex 
parties. Unfortunately not many students 
liked these locations because it was felt that 
the whole purpose of a dorm party was de- 

Omega at the beginning of theyearwas 
a great place for weekend partying, but it was 
reduced strictly to a living facility. Residents 
were not allowed to have loud music or more 
than 4 people on their balcony. Any large 
gathering on the front balcony of the apart- 

ments was usually broken up due to the "no 
gathering" policy. The picnic tables surround- 
ing the complex became the only possible 
place for small get-togethers. 

Nu dorm became, once again, the most 
happening spot on Campus on the weekends, 
although not to the extent that it was in 
previous years. Students would gather in and 
outside the suites to drink, associate and 
basically have a good time. Music was often 
blasted out the windows to enhance the over- 
all atmosphere. Everyone, regardless of where 
they lived often wound up here by the end of 
the night. Although security tightened its 
ranks, Nu dorms still provided students with 
the most hassle free party atmosphere. 

Parties generally occurred on campus 
every weekend, although many were small. It 
just took the effort of the students to make 
it happen. Where there is a will there is a 
way. If someone throws a party, people will

Th£ S^nifits of flpartm^nt Isivin; 

Since they could remember, the senior 
class had heard about the "new apartments," 
which would be ready for their last year of 
college. Many students, however, did not be- 
lieve this would actually happen until suddenly 
Omega became a part of the housing options 
at Eckerd College. 

Omega offers residents many advan- 
tages over the older living facilities at Eckerd. 
The freedom, privacy and comfort offered in 
Omega was long over due. 

The large kitchen offers students the 
option to cook for themselves, rather than 
having to trudge to the cafeteria which many 
do not enjoy. The kitchen has lots of cup- 
board space and a large refrigerator, provid- 
ing plenty of room for storing food, kitchen 
utensils, and appliances. It is also complete 
with a stove, oven, and dishwasher! 

The kitchen opens into a spacious liv- 
ing room allowing students to cook while 
watching television. Complete with entertain- 
ment center shelving, many students filled 
this area with TV and stereo making it ideal 
for hanging out with friends, relaxing, or even 
doing homework and having study groups. 

Each apartment has two bathrooms, 
one with a tub/shower and one with only a 
shower. Each are very roomy, though. The 
bathrooms were brand new, and thus very 
clean when students moved in this year. They

provide privacy, and deadlines unlike the com- 
munity ones in the dorms, where flip-flops are 
a must in the shower. 

The bedrooms, either single or double, 
are also quite spacious and definitely a step 
up from the typical dorm room. Each has a 
large balcony overlooking the sea wall, the 
parking lot, or Zeta pond, all providing a de- 
cent view of the water. Over the sea wall, dol- 
phins and manatees were frequently observed 
by residents. 

One downfall students felt about the 
living situation in Omega were the strict rules 
that accompanied it. Residents were not al- 
lowed to party on the inner walkway; in an 
effort to prevent accidents and destruction. 
Many felt that this was a nuisance when se- 
curity would come around and ask them to 
go inside. 

Living in Omega also required passing 
monthly inspections made by the residential 
life staff. This was to assure that the resi- 
dents were taking care of this brand new 
building into which much time and money had 
been put. 

Overall, the reactions of students who 
lived in Omega this year were positive. Many 
found that the conveniences and benefits of- 
fered by these new apartments were worth 
the extra expense.

Interview with sophomore commuter stu- 
dent, Jeff Cox, by Marc Vicelli: 
Marv:\Nhere do you live, Jeff? 
Jeff: I live at The Woods at Frenchman's 

Marc: About how far away is it by drive? 
Jeff: It's about a half mile. ..a mile or 
so... .You can make it in a minute if you're 
driving pretty fast. 

M?/r:Supposeyourvehicle broke down. How 
long of a walk would that be? 
Jeff: Oh, it's not too far. I know a couple of 
short cuts. I could probably make it in about 
five or ten minutes. 
Marc: Do you enjoy living off campus? 
JeffYeah, it's nice to have my own room. It's 
a pretty good size, and I have my own bath- 
room. We have a descent-sized kitchen so 
we get to cook our own food. That helps out 
a lot. 

A^/r; Do you have a roommate? 
Jeff: Yeah, I have one roommate. It's cool. 
We hang out and "chill." 
Marc:You lived on campus last year, right? 
jif^- Right. 

Manc.-WJbat would you say were the advan- 
tages to each? 

Jeff: Like I said earlier, you do get your own 
room, but it's kind of bad sometimes because 
you're sort of "out of the loop."You don't al- 
ways know all of the things that are going 
on, and you don't get to see as many people. 
On the other hand, it's nice and quiet, and 
you can get a lot more things done... if you 
stay on track. 

Marc:Doee living off campus ever "persuade" 
you to skip classes? 
J^/^'Oh man, sometimes, you know there's 

those mornings when you wake up and you 
feel like, "Oh, I don't want to get out of bed," 
and that adds to the fact that you have to 
jump in your car and drive a couple miles down 
the road.... so sometimes you don't feel like 
waking up. I'm sure that feeling's not any dif- 
ferent from living on campus. 
Marc: Do you miss the general college atmo- 
sphere? All the functions? All the parties? 
Jeff:Yeah, I do miss that part of it. I miss 
the people that would just stop bye to say 

Marc:Wou\d you say that there's a lot more 
freedom off campus? 

Jeff: I'm really not sure. One thing about 
Eckerd is that you can do a lot of things that 
you can't do at other schools, but depend- 
ing where you live off campus, in a house or in 
an apartment, you may have a few more re- 
sponsibilities that the owner or land lord 
might demand. I think there's quite a bit of 
freedom both on and off campus, actually. 
Marc: Would you ever consider moving back 
on campus? 

Jeff: I probably would consider it if off cam- 
pus living got to be too expensive or I couldn't 
find a good place to live... .or if I wanted to 
hang out with friends a lot more often or just 
be around the whole campus atmosphere. 
Marc:lfyou could summarize off campus life 
in a word or phrase, what would that be? 
Jeff: I would have to say, "dedicated." As I 
have found out, in some cases the hard way, 
this past year, there can be a lot of distrac- 
tions to living off campus so, if you don't stay 
on track, you can forget about academics 
just a little bit, and that could end up In a 
bad situation.

What On Earth 

The world spent much of the past 
thousand years making some pretty 
amazing history. As the millennium 
began, Druids practiced dark rituals, 
while the Byzantine Empire dominated 
Eastern Europe. Conqueror Genghis 
Khan put the Mongols on the map in the 
1200s, and the Great Wall protected 
China against would-be invaders. 

The Middle Ages, though plagued by 
feudalism, heralded gallant knights and 
the governing ideals of the Magna Carta. 
The Renaissance and The Enlightenment 
both saw great achievements in art, 
science and exploration, followed by 
Romantic and Revolutionary periods in 
France and colonial America. 

As industry and capitalism grew, so 
did Communism in the Soviet Union and 
beyond. The World Wars and other 20th 
century conflicts brought struggles for 
power amid vast advancements in 
communications and technology. 

History's movers and shakers 
included Joan of Arc, the teenager who 
led France to victory against England in 
1429, and Martin Luther whose religious 
reforms shocked the 16th century. King 
Henry VIII of England kept his head 
while several of his spouses lost theirs. 
Sir Winston Churchill helped England 
stand courageously against Nazi 
Germany. One recent hero is Nelson 
Mandela, South Africa's first black 
president and anti-apartheid activist. 
Time marches on. ..and the next chapter 
is already being written. 

And The Wall Game 
Tumbling Down 

In 1961, the Berlin Wall was erected to 
prevent residents of Communist East Berlin, 
Germany, from fleeing to non-Communist 
West Berlin for a better way of life. In 1 989, 
the East Germans opened the Wall, lifted 
immigration restrictions and reunited 
Germany. Tearing down the Wall symbolized 
the end of the Cold War, which started when 
the Soviet Union created "Iron Curtain" 
countries isolated from the Western world. In 
the '50s, fear of communism in the United 
States resulted in the "Red Scare."

On August 6, 1945, a U.S. 
plane, the Enola Gay, 
dropped an atomic bomb on 
Hiroshima, Japan, annihilating 
the city and nearly 1 30,000 
of its citizens. Japan surren- 
dered soon after, ending 
World War II. Because of 
Japan's attack on Pearl 
Harbor, resulting in America's 
participation in the war, and 
the Holocaust atrocities 
perpetrated by Adolf Hitler's 
Nazi Germany, the destructive 
effects of World War II would 
ive in infamy. 

The Christmas tree began as an evergreen decorated 
with apples, symbolizing Eden in a December medieval 
German play. By the 1 600s, trees in German homes 
were trimmed with candles, fruits and cookies. 
Currently, Christmas is a multi-billion dollar business 
with wreaths, mistletoe, stockings, movies, outdoor 
decorations and cards. 

Crusading Towards 
The Holy Land 

The Royal Flush 

When Muslims took con- 
trol of the Holy Land during 
the Middle Ages, Christians 
from Western Europe 
vowed to recapture the 
area. Nine major Crusades 
were organized with 
kings, nobles, peasants, 
and even children taking 
part. None was successful. 
Holy wars have continued 
to rage in such places as 
the Middle East, including 
the Six-Day War between 
Israel and Egypt in 1967. 

Where would the Ty-D-Bowl Man 
and bathroom libraries be without 
the flush toilet? After septic tanks 
and modern sewage systems were 
improved, civilizations significantly 
reduced the risks of severe 
illnesses and epidemics 
> which were so common 
during the Middle Ages. 
Concerns prompted public 
health improvements, including 
garbage collection 
and disposal, 
water treatment 
nd food 

Setting Off An Explosion 

With the world population now topping 6 billion 
and increasing at an annual rate of 1.6%,. more 
people are living now than have ever died. The 
population is rising because of high birth rates 
coupled with much lower death rates as a result 
of better living conditions.

The threat of war may have

As The Runik Turns 

More than 200 million people twisted their 
way to the 3-D solution of the Rubik's Cube 
puzzle in the '80s. Some tried memorizing 
the cube's configuration while it was still in 
the package. Preoccupation with puzzles 
dates back to the first jigsaw puzzles in the 
1 8th century. The world is still trying to solve 
crosswords, word searches, "Wfiere's 
Waldo?" and other brain-busting challenges. 

That's Pretty 

Leaders. Followers. The millennium 
caught every generation a bit off-guard, 
but folks quickly had the lingo and the 
look down. When Elizabethan life got 
ruffled around the collar, everyone 
copied. Then poof! Powdered wigs, 
some several feet high, got nobles 
noticed in the 17th century. How about 
wooden teeth in Washington's time? 
By George, it beat having none at all! 
As the years passed, women wore 
the bustle and disco freaks did the 
Hustle. The '50s poodle skirts bred '70s 
dog tags, '80s spiked dog collars and 
'90s Old Navy mutts. Who knew 
there'd be just as much fur-vor over 
Davy Crockett coonskin caps in the 
'50s as with raccoon coats in the '20s? 

While some slipped on shining 
armor, carefree flapper dresses and 
Calvin Klein jeans, others followed dif- 
ferent fads. Joysticks maneuvered 

Pac-Man into the arcade hall 
of fame. Suddenly everyone 
cared for Pet Rocks, 
squeezed into phone booths, 
pounced on Pog, pierced 
body parts and chose CB radio 
handles. Will there be as many "must

Magic 8 Ball knows for sure.

Arts Imitate Life 

Nearly every civilization during the 
millennium expressed its culture and 
defining events through art and 
architecture. Great painters, musicians, 
authors and sculptors vividly captured 
the emotions of their day. Early Romans 
built coliseums and staged comedies. 
Byzantine mosaics and icons reflected 
Eastern Christian beliefs while Chinese 
painters produced deft landscapes. 

The Middle Ages fostered the rise 
of Gothic cathedrals, poet Chaucer's 
"Canterbury Tales" and finely woven 
tapestries. In the Renaissance, 
William Shakespeare pumped up a 
volume of still-popular plays. 

Michelangelo busily sculpted his 
marble marvel David. Novelists such as 
Jane Austen characterized the Romantic 
Movement of the 1 8th century while the 
19th century promoted Impressionist 
painter Monet, socially-conscious authors 
including Charles Dickens and the 
riverside adventures of Mark Twain. 

Ballet legend Nijinsky leaped on the 
20th century arts scene. Picasso broke 
with tradition to pioneer Cubism and Dali 
turned dreams into surreality. Don't forget 
Dadaism, Mamaism and Norman 
Rockwellism. Opera was a trill a minute 
with stars including Beverly Sills and 
Luciano Pavarotti. 

Stephen King and Ann Rice chilled with 
horror novels, while Ernest Hemingway 
and John Steinbeck proved more 
down-to-earth. Broadway was Neil 
Simon-ized, then "Lion King"-ized. 

When 19th century French sculptor Auguste Rodin created 
his bronze work, The Thinker, he used his knowledge 
of anatomy and movement to capture intensely human 
emotions as great Renaissance and Baroque sculptors 
Michelangelo and Bernini had done before him. Many 
20th century sculptors crafted more experimental works, 
such as Marc Chagall's mobiles and Marcel Duchamp's 
creations from discarded materials.

Smile. You're On 
Canvas Camera 

Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci's 
1 503 portrait of Mona Lisa, the wife of a 
silk merchant, was extraordinary with its 
dramatic dark/light contrasts and ultra- 
mysterious smile. A face immortalized in 
history was a cinch if one happened to 
know such artists as Rembrandt, Van 
Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec or Wyeth. Many 
painters, however, opted for religious 
scenes, still lifes and landscapes.

The Terror 

ap Wide World 

I .-.Mil 

Sixty-year-old Willie Loman spent his life 
way out there in the blue, riding a smile 
and a shoeshine, a salesman 
extraordinaire. Arthur Miller's drama, 
"Death of a Salesman," became one of 
the most riveting plays ever staged as it 
questioned the American dream and 
explored the depths of failure. During the 
20th century, audiences have witnessed 
other gripping dramas such as "A Raisin 
in the Sun" and "The Glass Menagerie." 

Call it the face that launched a thousand 
album covers, t-shirts and manic-depressive 
sufferers. Norwegian Edvard Munch's 
1893 painting, The Scream, was an 
anguished cry of isolation and fear that 
influenced the 20th century Expressionist 
movement and reminded us of our own 
stressed-out lives. Vincent Van Gogh and 
Edgar Allan Poe were among other 
desperate artists and authors of the time.

Sometimes You Feel 
like A Nutcracker 

After Andrew Lloyd Webber picked 

up T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of 

Practical Cats at an airport, he grabbed 

the theater world by the tail as creator of 

"Cats," history's longest-running musica 

The 20th century set the stage for vaude- 

villian singing and comedy acts, as well 

as some of the greatest musicals to hit 

Broadway: "Showboat," "Porgy and 

Bess," "Phantom of the Opera," "Hello, 

Dolly!" and "The Lion King." 

In 1 892, Russian composer Peter 
Tchaikovsky turned the The Nutcracker 
into a beloved holiday ballet with his 
remarkable suite. Twentieth century 
dance gained popularity as composers 
wrote musicals that were imaginatively 
choreographed, including George 
Gershwin's "An American in Paris." 
Music and dance partnered dramatically 
with the Tango — followed by the carefree 
Charleston, Fred Astaire and Ginger 
Rogers' ballroom elegance, the Jitterbug, 
the Twist and Disco. 

Andy Warhol did much "Mmm' Mmm! Good! 
for the art world when his silkscreen print, 
"32 Campbell's Soup Cans," was exhibited 
in 1962. From there, the white-haired artist 
commented on popular consumer culture, 
coining the term "Pop Art." His other cre- 
ations involved striking images of mass-media 
icons Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. 
Warhol helped other pop artists including 
Roy Lichtenstein and Leroy Neiman, enjoy 
their 15 minutes of fame.

Music of the millennium started on 
a somber note with the Gregorian 
chants of monks and ended on samba, 
"La Bamba" and "Living La Vida 
Loca." French troubadours roamed the 
countryside with poems and tunes in 
the Middle Ages. Lutes and flutes 
added richness to the Renaissance, 
while chamber music was Handeled 
well in the Baroque period. 

Beethoven, Mozart and Tchaikovsky 
crowned the classical music of the 
18th and 19th centuries. Strauss then 
waltzed in to share the spotlight and 
Sousa marched over to greatness. The 
birth of the Blues and Jazz 
brought Billie Holiday and 
Duke Ellington, followed by 
Big Bands and the easy-

The Woodstock Music and Art Festival, an 
Upstate New York be-in that hosted music's 
grooviest stars from August 1 5A7, 1969, was 
to be the largest rock concert ever. An 
unexpected 500,000 fans, from hippies to 
anti-war protesters, braved traffic jams to 
witness this far-out trip guided by legends 
including Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane and 
Janis Joplin. Not bad for a single day's ticket

mega-concerts as Lollapalooza and Lilith Fair. 

Betcha dollars to jelly donuts that Elvis 
Presley will always be the King, with

Going After A Cure 

Despite numerous medical milestones, 
curing diseases such as AIDS and 
cancer eludes the population. In the 
'80s, Ryan White, a hemophiliac, 
contracted HIV through blood 
transfusions and later died. The AIDS 
virus is the latest epidemic 
civilizations have battled. The 
Bubonic Plague killed 40 million by 
the 14th century and the Typhoid 
Fever outbreak of the early 1 900s 
claimed countless lives as well. 
Vaccines now prevent such diseases 
as smallpox, but any mutations could 
pose a threat again. 

Prior to the use of anesthesia during 
operations, early surgeons and barbers cut 
veins to drain "bad" blood, or sucked it out 
with leeches to cure patients. Boiling oil was 
sometimes poured on wounds to sterilize 
them. Before nitrous oxide and ether were 
introduced as anesthetics in the 1 800s, most 
operations weren't performed at all. Surgical 
conditions were unsanitary, causing infections 
to spread rapidly. 

In the Middle Ages, the average 
life expectancy in Europe was 
about 30 years; today it is more 
/than 70 for both men and women.

Health Yourself 

The mysteries of medicine, better health 
and longer living were revealed as the millennium 
unfolded. Diseases prevalent in early times 
were conquered through improved medicine, 
sanitation, immunization and eating habits, 
although other factors such as high cholesterol, 
smoking and junk foods brought on such foes 
as heart disease, cancer and obesity. The Food 
and Drug Administration now ensures proper 
processing to kill bacteria and preserve foods 

In the 1 800s, Austrian monk Gregor 
Mendel formulated the basic rules of heredity 
that led to genetics, and better understanding 
of human makeup. Florence Nightingale 
brought reforms to nursing in thel9th century 
including more sanitary conditions and scientific 
care for the sick. Instead of the guesswork 
so common in the Middle Ages, doctors 
now work to control, cure and prevent 

illness. Medical specialties were created, 
Jucing such authorities as pediatrician 
Dr. Benjamin Spock who knew all 
about babies. 

Exercise became almost an 
obsession as gyms, jogging 
p j\ tracks and Jane Fondas sprouted, 
ilfSlk and personal trainers zeroed 
\ in on targeted areas. Take a 
deep breath and say

Coming And Going Attractions 

Getting around was slow and hard 
during the beginning of the millennium but 
somebody had to do it. In the Middle Ages, 
horses got saddled with pulling 
wagons transporting goods and 
passengers for long distances. Viking ships 
found rough sailing to Greenland and later 
America, but compasses and better 
construction of vessels in the 1400s made 
voyages and overseas trade possible. 

Canals and paved roads hastened 
travel in the 1700s and the first major 
U.S. Highway, the National Road, 
created road rage in the mid-1 800s. 

After Robert Fulton invented the 
steamboat, British inventor Richard 
Trevithick helped develop the locomotive. 

Life quickened as travel and hauling 
freight became more economical. 

Electric trains, streetcars and gasoline- 
powered engines drove transportation into 
the modern era. Suddenly automobiles 
putt-putted along and sprouted everything 
from running boards to fins. Airplanes 
soared, subways roared and spaceships 
explored. The risks of progress have also 
been great, such as the loss of pilot Amelia 
Earhart and her plane on an around-the- 
world flight in 1937, the Space Shuttle 
Challenger explosion in 1986 and numer- 
ous airplane crashes. 

Tomorrow's transportation could include 
human teleportation and faster-than-light 
travel. The ride's been pretty good so far, 
but inevitably some still ask, "Are we 
there yet?" 

Gas Transit 

Once steam-powered engines invaded 1 8th century 
Europe, a steam car, or horseless carriage, seemed 
a natural. The gasoline engine and pneumatic 
tire, however, made automobiles practical. Henry 
Ford's 1908 assembly line mass production of his 
Model T made owning a car affordable. This led to 
the growth of suburbs, superhighways, motels, road- 
trips, traffic jams, malls and, of course, fuzzy dice.

Loco For Motion 

In the 1 860s, the Central Pacific 
Railroad laid track eastward from 
Sacramento, California and the Union 
Pacific Railroad laid track westward 
from Omaha, Nebraska. The 
Transcontinental Railroad was finished in 
1 869 when both railroads met in 
Promontory, Utah. Coast-to-coast freight 
and passenger lines dramatically 
increased settlements and trade. Today's 
subways, light rail and ultra-fast bullet 
trains move commuters like crazy and 
make good action movie sequences. 

You'd be brave and dirty if you traveled in 
the bumpy horse-drawn wagons that exist- 
ed before stagecoaches arrived in 1 670. 
Stagecoach lines carried passengers and 
mail along routes in the West. Passengers 
defied hard seats and bandits such as 
Jesse James. Settlers came in covered 
wagons along with their freight, forming 
wagon trains that sometimes traveled only 
one mile per hour. Folks with the need for 
speed rode horseback.

We Get Game 

Sports gained popularity as time lunged 
forward. While forms of games resembling 
soccer were played during the 10th century, 
life rarely allowed time-outs for recreation. 
Thank goodness for the 1600s, when the 
English played Rounders, a baseball 
predecessor, and Scotland saw early rounds 
of golf. By the 1 800s many people led the 
sportin' life, including James Naismith who 
invented basketball, and the 
students of Canada's McGill 
University who scored with the 
first hockey rules. 

Native American athlete Jim 
Thorpe won fame in early 20th 
century Olympic track and field, 
as well as football and baseball. 
Babe Didrickson, his female 
counterpart, excelled in golf as 
well as track and field. 

As baseball became a 
pastime and football a passion, 
Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron 
belted pitches "outta here," 
Jackie Robinson broke color 
barriers, Joe Namath threw 
footballs and John Elway busted 
Broncos loose in the Super Bowl. 

Today sports revolves around 
such stars as heavy-hitter Ken 
Griffey, Jr., golf sensation Tiger 
Woods and hoops immortal 
Michael Jordan. Amateur and 
school sports are also serious 
stuff. Millions are on the fast 
track with NASCAR auto racing, 
on the edge for extreme sports 
and in the ropes for wrestling. 

Champs For Sale 

What really makes an athlete like home run 
king Mark McGwire a hero? Getting on 
General Mills' Wheaties cereal box, of course. 
There's nothing flaky about the morning mania 
created since 1 924 by "The Breakfast of 
Champions." Sports merchandising — from 
corporate-sponsored Bowl games to endorsement 
deals — seems like the hottest game in town.

Before modern boxing was introduced in the

jabbed and jested like Muhammed Ali. 
Quick, agile and boastful, "The Greatest" 
even wrote poems describing how he would 
defeat opponents. He also made heavy- 
weight contributions to the community and 
human rights. 

The Russians hadn't lost an Olympic 
hockey game since 1 968, but they 
were iced over by the l 980 U.S. 
hockey team's "Miracle On Ice" 
victory at Lake Placid — which led to 
an eventual gold medal. Since the 
modern Olympic Games began in 
1 896, heroes such as track star Jesse 
Owens, figure skater Tara Lipinski, 
platform diver Greg Louganis and the 
1 996 women's gymnastics team have 
inspired sports fans everywhere. 

Four Scores And 
Seven Yards Ago 

The Green Bay Packers sent the Kansas City Chiefs packing 35-10 at the 
first Super Bowl in January, 1967. Today, it is America's most popular 
annual televised event with hype and million-dollar commercials galore. 
Not only are college and high school football championships also big, 
but the teams are just as good as the pros at the coin toss. 

In the 1100s, the French originated tennis, calling it 
"jeu de paume "(game of the palm). Today it holds 
court as a major spectator and leisure sport. Star 
servers have included Don Budge, Helen Wills 
Moody, Arthur Ashe and 1 973 "Battle of the Sexes" 
rivals Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Recent top 
seeds such as Pete Sampras and Martina Navratilova 
have settled for anything but love by dominating 
Wimbledon and other championships. 

America got a kick out of the U.S. 
Women's soccer team, which won 
the 1999 World Cup by defeating 
China. Their victory proved that 
anything men can do, women 
can do just as well. Big milestone: 
President Richard Nixon signed 
into law Title IX, giving girls equal 
access to school sports like footbal 

Baseball, bowling 
and other familiar 
sports didn't just 
'appear out of the 
- blue. Here's a roster of 
some game origins. 

Baseball: Cooperstown, NY 1 839. 
Abner Doubleday based his new sport on 
bat-and-ball games such as "one old cat." 
He adopted the diamond-shaped field for 
his game and assigned playing positions. 

Bowling: Germany, third century. 
Every German peasant carried a club 
called a kegel for protection. In church, 
faith was tested by setting up the kegel as 
a target (representing the heathen) and 
rolling a stone to try to knock it down. 
Those who succeeded were considered 
free of sin. 

Fencing: Italy, 16th century. 
Fencing began in ancient times as the 
practice of swordsmanship to prepare 
men for duels arid warfare.

Was All An Act 

After Thomas Edison invented the commercial 
motion picture machine, the Kinetoscope, in 
1 893, projection machines greatly enlarged a 
film's image. This led to one of the 20th 
century's most popular forms of entertainment, 
the movie. Sunny Hollywood beckoned such 
film directors as D.W. Griffith, who revolutionized 
film editing with The Birth of a Nation in 1915. 
Silent films made quiet stars of comedian 
Charlie Chaplin, handsome Douglas Fairbanks 
Sr., Rudolph Valentino and Jean Harlow. 

In the 1930s, audiences heard voices 
when "talkies" caught on after The Jazz 
Singer's premier in 1927. Screwball 
comedies including It Happened One Night 
thrust such stars as Clark Gable and Claudette 
Colbert into the limelight. Alfred Hitchcock 
made classic thrillers, and Frankenstein was a 
chiller. Casablanca dramatized war and Dr. 
Strangelove spoofed it. Marilyn Monroe and 
Audrey Hepburn lit up the screen, and Charlton 
Heston found fame of biblica 
proportions. John Wayne saved the day, 
and James Bond was never shaken or 
stirred. The Rat Pack cruised the 
Vegas strip and the Brat Pack 
cruised the halls in The Breakfast 

Blockbusters have ruled 
recent movies. Sylvester 
Stallone punched up Rocky. 
Harrison Ford dodged 
madmen and meteors in 
Star Wars and Raiders of 
the Lost Ark. Armageddon 
and Titanic astounded 
audiences with their 
mega-dollar budgets. Tom 
Hanks, Julia Roberts and 
Will Smith became idols at 
24-screen multiplexes. 

Seen In 3-D 

Weapons flying past! Spaceships 
zooming above! Bwana Devil wowed 
tinted glasses-wearing crowds as the 3-D 
movie phenomenon burst from the screen 
in 1952. But high cost and poor quality 
made 3-D fall flat. Disney's Captain Eo 
gloriously revived 3-D in the '80s and 
became an audience-grabber at Epcot 
Center. Now seven-story IMAX theaters, 
IMAX 3-D technology and simulator rides 
truly immerse viewers in movies.

"Oh Fiddle Dee Dee," mused 
Scarlett O'Hara (Vivien Leigh) 
over the men and misfortunes 
she encountered as the strong- 
willed and resourceful mistress 
of Tara Plantation in 1 939's 
Gone With The Wind. Often 
called the greatest film made, 
GWTW told of a woman who 
could deal with the Civil War 
but not with losing the love of 
Rhett Butler (Clark Gable). 
Other unforgettable romances: 
The Way We Were, Breakfast 
at Tiffany's and Shakespeare 
In Love. 

"Soitenly" audiences loved comedy teams 
such as The Three Stooges in the '30s and 
'40s. Those n'yuk n'yuk n'yukleheads 
pulled punches to make 'em laugh. Laurel 
and Hardy got into fine messes, while 
Abbott and Costello turned their antics into 
the monstrous classic, Abbott & Costello 
Meet Frankenstein. Groucho, Chico and 
Harpo Marx were top bananas in zany 
romps including Monkey Business and 
opened the trap door for crazies such as 
Martin and Lewis, Crosby and Hope, Steve 
Martin and Eddie Murphy. 

Lights, Camera, Attraction! 

Some movie pairings are so memorable, they 
have become legendary. Here are a few of 
Hollywood's most famous film couples: 

• Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy 
(Woman of the Year - 1 942) 

• Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor 
[Cleopatra - 1 963) 

• Jessica Rabbit and Roger Rabbit 
[Who Framed Roger Rabbit? - 1 988) 

• Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks [Sleepless in 
Seattle - 1 993, Joe Versus the Volcano - 1990 
and You've Got Mail - 1 999) 

• Julia Roberts and . 

Richard Gere (Pretty 
Woman - 1 990 and 
Runaway Bride - 1 999) 

• Humphrey Bogart and 
Ingrid Bergman 
(Casablanca- 1942) 

Oh, those ruby slippers! A brilliant 
technicolor blast brought Kansas' 
Dorothy over the rainbow and into 
audiences' hearts as The Wizard of 
Oz premiered in 1 939. One of the 
best-loved movies because of its 
re-releases and annual television 
broadcasts, the film boasted wicked 
witches, munchkins, a cowardly lion 
and the magical Judy Garland. The 
Wizard of Oz inspired an African 
American musical and movie, The 
Wiz. And who could forget that 
dogged '70s rock band, Toto? 

Box Office Force 

George Lucas bet his high-tech 
space fantasy, Star Wars, 
would be a major force in 
movie history. Sure enough, 
the Star Wars trilogy and Star 
Wars Episode I: The Phantom 
Menace were "Jar-Jarring" 
successes. The special effects 
were out of this world, as 
Hollywood cranked up the 
thrill factor past Earthquake 
and Jaws lo Jurassic Park, 
Armageddon and 
Independence Day.

close encounters with space, time and the 
supernatural included The Twilight Zone, 
Lost In Space and My Favorite Martian. 

You bet your life it was big money: The $64,000

with letter-perfect skits and songs. Howdy

of kid power. Is it time for Teletubbies?

Would folks go as bonkers over television in 
the late 1940s as they had over radio in the 
'30s? As sure as Gunsmoke and The Colgate 
Comedy Hour, they did. Day and night, TV 
entertained, reported news, televised sports 
and created bright stars. Variety hosts such as 
Ed Sullivan shared the television waves with 
westerns, talent shows and sitcoms, including 
The Honeymooners. 

The Beverly Hillbillies struck a ratings 
gusher in the '60s, and Gilligan's Island, 
Laugh-In and Comer Pyle just kept the jokes 
coming. Batman zapped, Mission Impossible 
infiltrated and Bewitched twitched to greatness. It 
was Walter Cronkite for 
news and Johnny Carson 
for late-night talk. 

Those '70s shows such as The 
Brady Bunch, M*A*S*H, Fantasy 
Island and All In The Family appealed 
to young and old viewers. Real 
People made life entertaining, while 
60 Minutes took a harder look at the 
news. Roots popularized the mini- 
series, Cheers and Cosby caused 
'80s laughs and soap operas includ- 
ing General Hospital cleaned up. 

In the '90s, tabloid TV delved 
deeply, The Simpsons kept batting 
Homers, cable TV became a turn-on, 
and ER and Seinfeld were must-see.

Fate of the Union 

From the wilderness came a nation 
ready to fight for freedom and survive 
all odds. Native Americans had lived in 
the continent long before European 
explorers and colonists arrived in the 16th 
century. Thirteen British colonies formed, 
and the Revolutionary War erupted when 
England tightened control, and Paul 
Revere warned of the oncoming British 
invasion. Independence and the United 
States of America were both declared 
in 1776. 

The new nation weathered heat from 
France and Mexico, but acquired new 
territory such as the Louisiana Purchase. 
After gold in California was discovered 
in 1 849, America heard the roar of the 
Civil War, Reconstruction and Native 
American warriors such as Geronimo. 
Industry growth fueled prosperity until 

World War I and the beginning of the 
Great Depression. Two heroines, Rosie 
the Riveter and First Lady Eleanor 
Roosevelt, emerged during World War 
II. Peace efforts chilled as the Cold War, 
Korean War and McCarthyism isolated 
the U.S. from Communist nations. 

Life prospered in the suburbs and 
man rocketed into space, while civil 
rights struggles ignited. President John F. 
Kennedy was struck down, as were 
countless soldiers in Vietnam. Then 
President Richard Nixon struck out after 
the Watergate political scandal. The 
Gulf War, pollution and tragedies such 
as the Oklahoma City bombing hit hard 
in recent decades. Yet Americans still 
rally around the Stars and 
Wx Stripes. 

Betsy Ross was a well-known Philadelphia 
seamstress. In 1 776, the young widow 
was approached by George 
Washington's Continental Congress 
committee to sew the first official U.S. 
flag per their 13 stars/ 13 stripes 
design. With the speed of Paul 
Revere, she finished it off as 
a July 4th accompaniment / 

to The Declaration of 
Independence, which 
laid the foundation 
for the United States 
of America.

President Abraham Lincoln called it "A 
House Divided." The United States 
was unofficially split between the North 
(the Union), which sought to abolish slav- 
ery and modernize America, and the 
South (the Confederacy), which favored 
preserving slavery and an agrarian 
festyle. From 1861 to 1865, the bloody 
Civil War raged until General Robert E. 
Lee's Confederate army surrendered to 
General Ulysses S. Grant's Union force. 
Slavery was abolished and the United 
States became one nation again. 

"I Have a Dream that my children will 
one day live in a nation where they 
will not be judged by the color of their 
skin, but by the content of their charac- 
ter," said Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to 
Washington, D.C., protesters in 1963. 
His non-violent approach helped 
advance civil rights for all races. Other 
warriors for racial equality include 
anti-segregationist Rosa Parks, and 
Jesse Jackson, who pushed for 
African-American economic power. 

The 1 920s roared with prosperity 
until October 29, 1 929, Black 
Tuesday, when the New York 
Stock Exchange crashed and mil- 
lions of shares of stock were sud- 
denly dumped, plunging many into 
poverty. Franklin D. Roosevelt 
defeated President Herbert 
Hoover in the 1932 election. 
Roosevelt worked to end the 
Great Depression with the New 
Deal. Since then, America has sur- 
vived inflation, recession, tax cuts, 
and somehow, lunchroom food. 

It was a simpler time called 
"The Good Old Days." The 
front porch, or stoop, was the 
nightly gathering place for 
several generations of family 
and friends. Evening breezes 
and conversation filled the air 
while a passing parade of 
buggies and neighbors moved 
past. Maybe it was the coming 
of television, indoor air 
conditioning or the faster pace 
of suburban communities that 
caused the front porch to 

In 1 869, Susan B. Anthony helped found 
the National Women's Suffrage 
Association to seek equal rights for 
women. Her efforts led to passage of the 
19th Amendment in 1920, giving women 
the right to vote. Other women's rights 
leaders furthered the cause, including 
Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan. Role 
models such as astronaut Sally Ride and 
Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day 
O'Connor opened still more doors.

Going geek is a good thing if your 
name is Bill Gates. Computers 
revolutionized the speed and accura- 
cy of information processing, ever 
since a punch card machine tabulat- 
ed the 1 890 census. In the 1970s, a 
computer's entire workings fit on a 
chip. Things got PC when 
Microsoft created software programs, 
making Gates a "bill"-ionaire. The

In Depression-era America, radio 
was not only a necessity but a 
reassuring source of comfort. Turning

chats to the nation. Though the 
nation later became obsessed with 
television, radio kept up its cool 
beat with rock music, talk radio, 
rap and other listening pleasures.

In the late 1 800s, some newspapers took 
Freedom of the Press too far. To gain new 
readership, some of America's leading 
newspapers began sensationalizing 
accounts of Spanish oppression in Cuba to 
provoke America's entry into the Spanish- 
American War. After this outbreak of 
"yellow journalism," news media took great 
measures to heighten credibility, though 
tabloid-style reporting still exists. On the flip 
side, investigative reporting gained popular- 
ity in the 1970s by exposing government 
corruption, such as Watergate, as well as 
improper business practices.

No sooner had the Persian Gulf War

per-view. Television viewers, however, 
loved all the remote possibilities.

"Mr. Watson, come here," 
said Alexander Graham Bell into the 
telephone he developed in 1 876. It's 
become one of today's most valuable 
communication devices, linking people 
throughout the world at lightning speed. 
From the telephone's humble beginnings 
have emerged high-speed fiber optic 
networks, fax machines, cellular phones, 
computer modems and videophones. 
There's some connection here. 

Get The Message 

People spoke, wrote letters and sent mes- 
sengers before this millennium but communi- 
cation was usually local and slow. Most 
Middle Ages books were religious because 
church leaders were among the few who 
could read. Monks copied oooks by hand 
and town criers were heard since they 
announced news. Printed books of the 
Renaissance allowed the masses to read the 
Bible and other works. By the 1600s, 
newspapers enabled inquiring minds to read 
ship schedules. Benjamin Franklin helped 
establish regular postal service in the 1700s 
and the Pony Express ran mail cross- 
country in the 1 800s. 

While steamships and locomo- 
tives sped the spread of news, it 
wasn't until Samuel Morse 
invented the telegraph in 
the 1840s that coded 
messages were 
transmitted rapidly 
Cameras, the type- 
writer, telephone, 
phonograph and 
motion pictures put 
communications on an 
even faster track. 
Advances came in short 
and long waves when 
Guglielmo Marconi invented 
radio. Television was perfected, 

and tape recorders came into 
play. Since the 1960s, communica- a 
tion satellites relayed TV, radio and m 
other signals across the planet. 
Computers and modems instantly 
processed data, and the Internet linked 1 
the world. Broadcast journalists, such 
as 20/20's Barbara Walters, fueled 
the rise of information junkies. Fiber 
optics, VCRs, CD-ROMs and HDTV 
not only furthered technology but gav 
adults lots of expensive new toys.

aspect of college life. By taking 
naps, students can catch up on 
much needed rest, or prepare 
for a night full of studying or 
partying, photo by Angela 

Looking into the future, we can use our exper- 
iences to enhance our upcoming lives. There is a 
time to look back, a time to look ahead, a time 
to remember the good, and a time to remember 

the bad. Remembering lessons 

learned through each of these 

experiences and all of our 

mistakes, we can carve a better 

path for ourselves In the future.

Rob Meyers and Raphael 

Pinto sing to "Wicked Games " 
as they take a break from 
studying. A lot of students 
gather in dorm rooms on the 
weekends to hang out and 
party with their friends. Since 
the new alcohol rules have 
been issued, most students 
remain indoors instead of 
hanging out in the complex 
courtyards like they used 
to do. photo by Jessica Green 

A freshman raises his paddle 
in victory at the Funiympics. 
Autumn Term had long since 
come and gone as the year 
came to a close, but the 
memories and friendships built 
will always remain. There is 
always a time for victory 
throughout life and many of 
these victories occurred for 
students in their time at Eckerd

from Kappa one last time after 
moving out of their rooms. 
Leaving is never easy, and 
parting with good friends is 
even harder. The dorms close 
the day after graduation, leav- 
ing the last couple of days on 
campus hectic and emotional; 
trying to sqeeze that last box 
into the car, in additon to that 
last hug with your roommate, 
which is never long enough.
