allows us to grow into the fu-

experiencing an evolution which 
leads them to the roads we all 
must choose in life.

Small Steps 


constantly changing, the Uni- 
versity constantly changes the 
academic system to allow us, its 
students, the opportunity to be 
more attractive to the future 

Evolution isn't all leaps 
and bounds into the future; the 
past is just as important. The 
Old Chapel reminds us of our 
roots, while the Lederle Gradu- 
ate Research Tower and its new 
neighbor, the Polymer Research 
Center, foreshadow our future. 
As students, changing into the 
thinkers and dreamers of the 
future, we must remember from 
where we came. So even though 
the future forces the University 
to expand, part of its heritage 
still remains. 


' he University of Massachusetts at Amherst evolves to welcome 
the future with open arms. Each year, the University expands its 
academic departments, grounds, and services to provide its stu- 
dents with as many resources as possible. Essentially, the Univer- 
sity is the womb of the future, constantly forming many pieces of 
the future. 

This year marks the 125th anniversary of the Index and to 
celebrate this momentous occasion, we want to look at where we 
came from and look at where we are going. It is very important to 
move forward, but at the same time it is important to remember 

our past.

our constant evolution, we reach 

a point where the University 
cannot nurture us any further; 
to continue to grow and change, 
there is only one last frontier to 
conquer — the outside life, the

You're walking, you're talking, heading 
down the staircase towards the Hatch for 
study group when you see it (gasp) . . . the 
Student Union Craft Center. What do you 
do? Well about 4,000-6,000 of us stop in every 
year and that is just students! The craft center 
is open to EVERYONE interested — but as 
UMass students, we get free membership. It 
is a fun, creative place to hang out, and a 
portion of our student activity fee goes to- 
wards keeping it open. So why not use it!? 
Even those of us who happen to be "artisti- 
cally impaired " can get some- 
thing out of the center be- 
cause there is no pressure, 
excellent instruction, and the 
students who run it are just 

The UMass Student 
Union Craft Center is open 
40 hours a week and is one of 
the largest and best equipped 
college craft centers in the 
country. They offer everything! From jew- 
elry making and silk-screening to sewing 
and ceramics. The craft center even offers 
some "off-the-wall" artsy things like sandal 
making. And the great thing is, all these 
activities are very, very affordable. It has 
already been said that membership is free for 
UMass students, but get this, so are any tools 
you need and all levels of instruction (Yes, 
FREE!). You only pay for the materials, which

activities that the Student Union Craft Center has 
to offer students. Workshops are also offered to 
train students in various art techniques.

fee, you can get

and end up with a 
masterpiece. Just

are really inexpensive since 
the Craft Center is non-profit. 
They even allow you to use 
your own materials, and they 
will still help you! 

Our Craft Center not only 
offers walk-in creative fun, 
but you can also sign up for 
monthly workshops. Picture 
this, a teeny tiny materials 
fee, you get into a small class, 
and end up with a masterpiece that you 
could re-create because the Craft Center 
taught you how to. 

All and all, the Student Union Craft Cen- 
ter is a GREAT educational and extracurricu- 
lar resource for UMass and the Amherst area 
as a whole. There is definitely no better place 
to go to relieve that pent up creativity in all of 
us - without the stress of being graded on it!

The UMass Bi- 
cycle Co-op is a non- 
profit organization that 
is located on campus 
on the third floor of the 
Student Union. Since 
its start in 1970, the 
Co-op has been student 
run and there to ser- 
vice the student body' s 
bicycle repair needs. 
The four person steer- 
ing committee takes care of such tasks as 
accounting, publicity and basic operation 
of the Co-op. There are eight other students 
who staff the Co-op, manning the shop 
throughout the week and assisting students 
with their problems. 

The Co-op is a place where anyone can 
fix their bike. The Co-op provides students 
with a cheap alternative to the prices of 
shops in town while giving them an educa- 
tion in bicycle repair. The Bicycle Co-op 

£ shop, completely fur- 

nished with all the vari- 
ous tools needed for 
repairing a bike. There 
are always at least two 
staff members on hand 
r> to advise and assist stu- 

^ dents in repairing their 

bikes. There is also a 
sales room that sells 
components at com- 
petitive prices. 
In the past few years, the Co-op' s popu- 
larity has greatly increased. "Before, only 
road-riders used to come in, but now a lot 
more regular patrons come in with moun- 
tain bikes," says senior Resource Econom- 
ics major Chris Carrara. Because of the 
demand for the Co-op' s services, the Co-op 
is hoping to expand. Nathan Webber sums 
up the Co-op, "Basically what the Co-op is, 
is a non-profit organization where students 
can fix their bikes cheap, while learning 

charges $3 an hour and provides a work- how to do it."

As a Jewish woman, I spent a long time 
searching for a place where I really felt 
comfortable. For a while, I expected such a 
place to find me, but that didn't happen. I 
realize now that I had to go out and look for 
it. I found it at Hillel House, located at 388 
North Pleasant Street, one PWXWfFVW&f 
block from campus. 

Hillel House, the 
largest student organiza- 
tion at UMass, provides 
activities, classes, and 
programs to allow the 
Jewish population at 
UMass to have a sense of 
community and family. 
This includes a residen- 
tial area located on the top ■■■■■■■ 
floor of the Hillel House comprising of 
twenty-six students of different religious 
faiths. According to Diana Cohen, the resi- 
dential assistant at Hillel House, Hillel is 
"an umbrella organization" that encom- 
passes Israeli affairs, Black Jew and 
Women's Issues, and religious, social, and 

political activities. Some of these activities 
include a trip to the Holocaust Museum in 
Washington D.C., Israeli Cafe Night, and a 
visit from Jerry Seinfeld. 

Hillel is an organization that cares about 
the Jewish people. There have been relief 
efforts to help the Jews of 
war torn countries such as 
Yugoslavia, Somalia, and 
Bosnia. There are classes 
offered at Hillel that en- 
courage students to be 
proud of their heritages 
and to work together so 
that all Jewish students 
can have that same 
chance. One member of 
.iiSMMStfiM Hillel says, "Knowing I'm 
helping my fellow Jews makes me a better 
person. I always walk out of Hillel feeling 
like I made a difference in somebody's life. 
Everyone should have the right to be proud 
of where they came from. Hillel is really 
into that."

Thirty years ago, when the campus was 
dergoing the turmoil and changes brought 
jut with the various sixties movements, 
■ enrollment of foreign students at UMass 
?an to increase tremendously. With the 
roduction of more students with diverse 
rural characters and tastes 
ne the need for an organi- 
:ion that addressed the 
sh needs and interests of 
* steadily increasing for- 
;n population. Thus 
olved the International 
ident Association (ISA), — 
lated to unify the many international stu- 
nts on campus into a diverse yet cohesive 
nm unity. 

The ISA is an apolitical organization 
lose goal is to increase relations between 
lernational students by holding meetings 
d functions that spark interaction and en- 

lightenment through its widely diverse mem- 
bers. The club sponsors student wide events 
such as Multi-Cultural Night, the Interna- 
tional Fair and various dances and parties. 
The club offers students a wide range of 
experiences that are not only fun ways to 

//Jt's amazing to see how many people from different 
cultures there are around you on campus, and how 
much you can learn from backgrounds different than 
your own." 

meet new people and socialize, but also pro- 
vide a new way of looking at life, through the 
eyes of another culture. Chaza Credi, a new 
member of ISA states, "It's amazing to see 
how many people from different cultures 
there are around you on campus and how 
much you can learn from backgrounds dif- 

ferent than your own. 

The club has seen excellent turn 
outs to all its functions this year and sees 
itself expanding a lot in the next few months 
as students become more involved in its 
different activities and offer input that will 
make the club an exciting and 
enriching opportunity. The 
various members of the or- 
ganization are very excited 
with the future events spon- 
sored by the ISA and feel their 
involvement has broadened 
their knowledge of other cul- 
tures. Member Rachel Matthai says, "The 
International Students Association allows me 
to diversify by coming in contact with over 
30 different nationalities." She, like other 
members feel the ISA is an experience all 

students should be part of it.

Black and White 

The Collegian is why Darienne Hosley, 
Managing Editor of the paper, is at UMass. 
As a Journalism major, she's been with the 
paper since her freshman year, having started 
at the editorial desk. 

"I have stayed at UMass," she said, "be- 
cause of The Collegian. There's no other way 
to put it. This is the greatest playground for 
journalists. You get a chance to play every- 
thing. In the real world, you I^I^^HH^H 
may not be an editor, you 
may not work with advertis- 
ers, or sit behind a desk and 
make ethical decisions." 

Michael Morrissey, cur- 
rently the editor-in-chief of 
the paper, said, "I wouldn't 
trade in my jobs at the paper BHHHBH 
for anything in the world. The people I've 
met are my best friends. We also have the 
satisfaction of putting out one of the best 
college dailies in the country. It's the best 
single decision I've made in college." 

As a result, Hosley said, "We have made 
and continue to make an incredible number 
of contacts. From Connie Chung to the Bos- 

5 Z 







ton Globe to 48 Honrs, people call on us to 
provide news about UMass." 

Talking about time commitment, Mike 
Carvalho admitted, "I've been here four and 
a half years now. I would have graduated on 
time if it weren't for this. But that's the way 
The Collegian works at UMass." 

Vanessa Adelman writes news for The 
Collegian. She publishes three articles a week 

//Jf you cover UMass Basketball for The Collegian, there 
ain't much better you can do. There are twenty thou- 
sand people who will read your story. If there's anything 
better, it's playing for the team." 

and covers the police beat, reporting the 
police log. One of four News Associate Edi- 
tors at The Collegian, she is a journalism major 
with a history minor. 

"It's a lot of fun, a great time. It some- 
times gets overwhelming to put out three 
stories a week," Adelman explained. "You 
write so much that you have to improve, and 

you gather so many news clips that you ce 
use to apply for jobs and to graduate schools 
Adelman continues, "I love workir 
here, and I love print journalism. Everyoi 
on The Collegian is involved. You can om 
hold a position for a semester, so roles chan? 

often, and everyone tries o; 
different positions." 

What's "hot news" m 

According to Adelma, 
"So far, the Mullins Cental 
professor-student relatioi 
ships, UMass sports, and til 
^^^1 Minuteman [mascot] have t 
made front page news. While national nev 
is important, on a campus this size, campc 
issues are a natural focus, especially whn 
they themselves ARE national news." 

Morrissey is a graduating Communis 
tions major, Journalism minor. He said 
feels confident as a journalist. "I enjoy tt 
responsibilities. I like the fact that we |

He said one of the problems working for 
e Collegian is that, "People don't under- 
md how much time we put in. Some of us 
tt in a 40 hour work week. And we still

But the rewards, according to Morrissey,

It's 10:15 p.m. and as I sit down to 
study, I realize I need some background 
music. I turn on my radio and search for a 
good station when suddenly a catchy tune 
grabs my attention: It's WMUA, our own 
UMass radio station found on the dial at 
91.1 FM. Having never been a big fan of 
college radio, I was 
pleasantly surprised to 
find that WMUA of- 
fered a wide variety of 
music and entertain- 
ment that addresses 
evenmy unique tastes. 

Part of WMUA's 
appeal is its emphasis 
on modem music and 
multi-culturalism . Through such programs 
as Dave Farley's "Pork Roll and Cheese," 
WMUA addresses a very diverse range of 
tastes. Local and up-and-coming bands are 
just some of the music that floods the air- 
waves of WMUA due to a great demand for 
new music. With focuses on such things as 
Women ' s Issues, Third World and ALAN A

by far the best station

WMUA's unique internal character 
helps make it such an effective organiza- 
tion. Broadcasts run 24 hours a day all year 
round and allow the student volunteers the

tastes and creativity. 
According to Promo- 
tions Director 
Meredith Makowski, 
WMUA is based on 
"dedication, represen- 
tation and a sense of 


Students all over campus tune in to 
WMUA for the latest in news, sports, music 
and entertainment. Marc Mombourquette 
says "WMUA breaks away from the mold. 
It is by far the best station around!" How- 
ever, the only way to discover the magic of 
WMUA is to tune in for yourself.

Taking People 
into the Woods 

and Doing Things with Them 

The Outing Club took an exception- 
ally large number of people out into the 
woods and did things with them this year. A 
large number of trips took place with record 
numbers attending. The number of trips 
that went out every weekend was astonish- 
ing. Our membership reached a high it 
hadn't reached in years. 

We introduced many beginners to the 
world of the great outdoors, from white 
water canoeing to local day hikes. Adven- 
turesome and not-so-ad- hi^^^^bb 
venturesome students 
tested their skills at rock 
climbing with Frank, Ian, 
or Jason (if it wasn't rain- 
ing), and Friday night 
kayak rolling with Mike. 
Many students saw the 
world beneath the ground 
on a Clarksville caving 
trip with Eli or Mark. Who 
could forget an invigorat- 
ing white water canoeing B^HHHH^I 
or rafting trip down the Deerfield River 
with Al? 

A weekend in the Outing Club Cabin 
in Bethlehem, NH was a great break from 
campus. Hiking on the Presidential Range 
with Jed and Molly, or maybe a scenic trip 
up Mt. Willard with Bill. Just watch out for 
the Choate Bears!

to plan the trips, the 
Outing Club con- 
tinues to be a huge

ings were better attended this year, as were 
the traditional New England Contra- Dances 
held in the Grinnel Arena. 

There were the annual spring break 
trips to West Virginia and 
North Carolina for caving 
and canoeing. Fun in the 
southern sun (or snow if 
you were lucky like last 
year!) was had by all. 
These longer trips give 
everyone a chance to get 
to know their peers a little 
better and make many 
close friends.

The Students Advocating Financial Aid 
AFA) is an organization that fights for the 
ijhts of students by lobbying state and fed- 
al legislator for more student financial aid. 
te organization was founded after now 
tired professor Jerry Grady received a sug- 
?stion during one of his lectures 15 years 
;o. The student suggested that their Politi- 
1 Science class go and lobby in Washington 
.C. for more financial aid. 
rady thought the idea was 
rthing more than just a fruit- 
ss suggestion. The follow- 
g class, the class had accu- 
ulated $4,000, and all 
rady said was "We're going to Washington 
.C!" That was just the beginning. 

"People can take away a job. People can 
ke away a car. People can take away your 
)use but they can't take away an educa-

Cervini. An education should 
be a right and not a privilege. 
This group takes financial aid 
personally. In fact, the elected 
Secretary of S AF A is not able to 
serve this year. Now you are 
probably asking why can't he 
serve this year? His financial

aid was drastically cut and was unable to 
afford to return to school. ..very ironic but 
very true. The fact of the matter is that the 
price of higher education is sky-rocketing 
out of control. 

Each year, the group goes to Boston and 
Washington D.C. to meet with legislature 
and law makers to express the need for finan- 

cial aid for the student body. 
The University of Massachu- 
setts is the only school in the 
entire nation to have a stu- 
dent lobbying group for fi- 
nancial aid. This fact gives the group a well 
deserved reputation among Senators, Rep- 
resentatives, law makers, and other high of- 

This group fights for every student who 
can't afford the growing tuition. This group 
fights for education, for the future.

For all the future Ted Turners and Rupee

students at the university. In a far corner < 
the Student Union, just next to the Hatch, li« 
the Union Video Center (UVC), the campuu

for students. Not only does the UVC servj 
cable television to approximately 22,000 hunt

access to video and lighting equipment, m, 
to mention a fully functional editing roorrij 

Founded in 1974 by David Skillicon 
now with Channel 5 of Boston, the Centiti 
was originally designed to train interestei 
undergraduates in video production. IT 
UVC now has some 200 members, about ha, 
of whom are fully trained in the ways 
producing, filming, and editing video, 
addition to being trained, students can pa.i 
ticipate in productions run by other studen 



ich as a talk show which brings in some 
mous campus faces including Lou Roe and

ind production isn't a shoe that fits well, a 
udent can start his/her own production 
id bring in other members to fill positions 
ich as lighting, editing, camera operator, 
nd star. 

For a future in video, there is no better 
lace on campus to start than at the Union 
iideo Center. The UVC gives students the 
pportunity to run or participate in projects 
n UMass sports, theater, campus politics 
nd rallies, experimental video, computer

Spectrum Magazine was first intro- 
duced to the University of Massachusetts in 
1967 as a general interest publication whose 
contributors consisted primarily of profes- 
sors. The premier issue of Spectrum was 
composed of essay, fiction, poetry, and 
photography bound between two black cov- 
ers and highlighted with a piece of psyche- 
delic art composed of primary colors. At 
that time, the magazine was a biannual 
affair and during the Sev- 
enties Spectrum became 
a student-run publication 
which accepted submis- 
sions from undergraduate 
and graduate artists from 
the Five College commu- 
nity. Spectrum is a regis- 
tered undergraduate stu- 
dent organization whose 
funding stems from the 
undergraduate Student 
Senate, the UMass Arts 
Council, and the Student Affairs Cultural 
Enrichment Fund. Each year, Spectrum 
seeks undergraduate and graduate students 
to join its staff and review submissions in 
art, photography, poetry, and prose. People 
are also encouraged to join Spectrum' s pub- 
licity and production staffs to help promote 
and publish the annual magazine. 

In recent years, Spectrum has hosted 
several poetry and prose readings in Me- 
morial Hall and the Amherst Black Sheep

chalk to draw murals in the reflecting pools 
at the Fine Arts Center and holding a recep- 
tion for the release of the annual magazine 
where the originals of the works that have 
been accepted for the publication are dis- 
played. This year, Spectrum plans to help 
sponsor art majors display their senior the- 
sis projects as an effort to assist persons 
unable to acquire space at 
local galleries to have a 
showing of their works. 
Spectrum encourages new 
members to join its orga- 
nization as well as to sub- 
mit their works to be re- 
viewed for publication. 
Spectrum seeks creative 
and dedicated people who 
might be interested in 
learning about how a stu- 
dent organization works. 
Curiosity-seekers, the disenfranchised, 
former Perot supporters, stranded 
Romulans, the morbid, impulse shoppers, 
C-SPAN junkies, chocoholics, Hair Club

It can hardly be said that the University 
of Massachusetts lacks multicultural outlet! 
for the large student body that inhabits thi 
Amherst campus. The Five College Euro 
pean Club is one such outlet. Initiated ui 
1991, the club provides students with thi 
opportunity to learn, examine, and enjo 1 ' 
many cultural and educational aspects oc 
various European countries. 

The club attracts membership of whaj 
founder and President Dimos Silvestriadili 
described as "an impressively diverse grouji 
of people." Silvestriadis also asserted tha, 
the organization fulfills the needs of mam 
students of European background, as well a.i 
other students who are interested in botii 
historical and current economic, politicali 
and social issues of the greater European 
region. The senior Economics Management 
major founded the club with the idea tha; 
"all Five-College Area students should b> 
able to know what is going on in Europe." 

The event which gained the Five-Col 
lege European Club the most recognition i 
its popular Eurohouse party, which was tra 
ditionally held up to three times a semester

Sil vestriadis, and Vice-President Tom Hof meister

\e dance party targeted fans of house, 
chno, and trance music in search of a club- 
ce atmosphere reminiscent of European 
sco-techs, and offered them "a different 
ay of entertainment," according to 

"People dance until they melt," said 
Ivestriadis. "It is amazing how we get a 
ore and more diverse crowd each time. We 
!t more people than all the bars in town 

munication with offices in Brussels and New 
York," said Silvestriadis, who was also the 
database director. "We can hook up in any 
database and assist people in every topic, 
including tourism." 

The club also sponsors a range of lec- 
tures by prominent business figures, politi- 
cians and professors which present pertinent 
European issues from views of expertise. In 
the fall of 1993 approximately 200 people

r 5,000 watts of the vibrating tunes of party 
aster D.J. Tasos, a cash bar and electrifying 
'hting, the last Eurohouse drew more than 
000 students. "It is pure adrenaline rush," 
Ided Thomas Hofmeister, Vice President 
: the club. 

Another benefit of the organization is its 
uropean database Center. "With three com- 
pters and a fax machine we maintain corn- 

attended "French Positions on the Uruguay 
Round and the Future of International Trade. " 
The well-received lecture was given by Odile 
Roussel, and students were able to meet Ms. 
Roussel personally at a reception following 
the presentation. 

In addition, Jacqueline M. Nonon spoke 
on "Being a Woman in Europe" in the spring 
for an audience of hundreds of women from 
Smith and Mount Holyoke Colleges.

Union Ballroom.

All of the European Club activities are 
carefully recorded and stored in the Univer- 
sity archives. Tapes from the Eurohouse par- 
ties, pictures and poster were all stored in a 
time capsule and planted under a tree be- 
tween the Student Union and the Library in 
the spring. 

As the main vein of the Five College 
consortium of European organizations, the 
UMass branch is an integral presence on 
campus and in the Valley. All students are 
encouraged to join, and, judging from the 
variety of both educational and entertaining 
achievements of the club, will undoubtedly 
learn from the experience and enjoy them- 
selves in the process. "We have done the 
impossible. Despite all the UMass bureau- 
cracy, we brought the most prominent Euro- 
pean VIPs and organized the most successful 
parties!" concluded Hofmeister.

interests of Black students at the Univer- minority organizations, have sponsored

Black Student Union is 
open to all students en-

Today, through many 
trials and tribulations, the 
BSU maintains its commit-

The goals of the choir evolved as 
the organization began to bring in 
students and non-students of all faiths

goal is to unite the UMass community

For several years, the American 
Society of Civil Engineers at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts has provided 
a connection for civil engineering stu- 
dents between the classes they take, 
their professors, and real world engi- 
neering practice. As with any profes- 
sional society, ASCE has been com- 
mitted to helping reinforce lessons 
learned in the classroom as well as 
build friendships that will last a life- 
time. " 

The 1993-1994 
officers of ASCE 
have spent this year 
reviving old traditions 
with the chapter as 
well as working to in- 
crease its participation 
in local, regional, and 
national activities and 
competition. In the ffOMUMMBiMB 
past, the ASCE student chapter has 
always tried to commit its resources to 
a local community service project, and 
this year was no exception. Scott 
Galbraith, the president of the student 
chapter, organized a volunteer team of 
UMass Civil Engineering students to 
help the town of Ware build a commu- 
nity playground. For this year, ASCE is 
planning another great project in Groff 
Park in South Amherst. With the help 
of the Amherst Conservation Commis- 
sion, the ASCE chapter is looking into 
constructing three small foot bridges, 
approximately 25 feet in length, to carry 
hikers over the many small streams that 
criss-cross the area. 

The largest and most gratifying 
project of this year' s ASCE chapter was 
the construction, presentation and rac- 
ing of the FOGGY BOTTOM, a 385 lb. 
prize-winning concrete canoe. This 
project taught members lessons that 
never would have been learned in any 
classroom. Crew management, concrete 
working, transporting large, heavy 
things 500 miles and concrete canoe 
racing techniques were all part of the 
curriculum. Shawn P. 
Kelley, the project 
manager, didn't rest 
from the day the mix 
design was prepared 
until the day Anatoly 
Darov and Travis 
Mitchell crossed the 
finish line in first place 
in the 200 meter 
B sprint. The long road 
to the competition at the University of 
Maine at Orono was worth every mile 
as the UMass chapter of ASCE did 
extremely well, despite their lack of 

Along with providing its members 
with the opportunity to become a pro- 
ductive part of their community, 
ASCE's main goal is to help develop 
leadership skills that civil engineers 
will need in the years to come.

In the male dominated field of enginec | 
ing here at UMass, there is often little su

steadily growing department. The Society 
Women Engineers (S WE) addresses this proi 
lem and unites women, and recently mec 
together in an environment that works II 
wards improving professional and person 1 
strengths that will benefit students later 
the workplace. 

SWE is a student chapter of a nation 
society geared toward supporting women i 
the engineering field. The chapter began H 
this campus in 1977 when there were fe< 
women studying in the field, and has beo 
going strong for the two decades since the* 
It is committed to the recruitment and pri 
fessional development of women studyiii 
to become engineers. 

The society is student run and is headil 
by an executive board consisting of a Pree 
dent, Vice President, Secretary and Tret 
surer. Underneath them are the various sui 
committees in charge of such things as ft 
activities of the group, f undraising, membei 
ship recruitment and the Big Sister progran 
which assists new students just entering tt 
field. They are all included in the 75 men 
bers that make SWE effective. 


Anything a 

Man Can Do... 

Members of SWE pay a $15 fee which 
>ws them to receive various magazines 
i materials that are geared towards their 
;rests. While the group meets monthly, 
sub-committees meet on a more frequent

not for all, those who do participate gain a lot 
of experience and strength. She feels that

C WE fosters a climate that allows women to be who they are in a

strong leadership skills through organizing 
activities and meetings and are more sought 
after by businesses after they graduate. 

Each year the heads of the Society famil- 
iarize themselves with different members 

and find out what suits the needs of that 
particular group. They try to include a bit of 
everything to suit all interests and make 
membership a worthwhile experience. And 
while the group is focused mainly on the 
needs of women, men have become increas- 
ingly more interested in SWE in order to be 
able to support work effectively with their 
female associates in the future. 

Henry Arundale, a new member of the 
group, became interested through his friends 
who were members and was curious to find 
out what the group was all about. He feels 
that by becoming a member he would "be 
able to better understand women and their 
problems in a field where there aren 't many. " 

Members of the group continue to try to 
attract new members to the invaluable expe- 
rience membership in SWE has to offer.

Just about everyone has wanted 
to fly away at one time, to soar away 
from terra firma and their troubles 
like a bird on the wing. Daedalus 
and his son Icarus, from Greek 
mythology, constructed wings to sail 
to another land (and would have 
made it if the sun wasn't so hot). The 
Wright brothers, as well, chased their 
crazy dreams to the sky at Kitty 
Hawk. There were many who shared 
the love of flight, and even today in advertis- 
ing we see the aspect of taking off and sky- 
rocketing away. You can see everything in a 
different way from the top. 

The University's hang gliding club of- 
fers the experience of height to all those who 
want to experience it. From those who want 
to achieve their dream of ascension to those 
overcome by weak knees, the hang gliding 
club helps all overcome their apprehension 
by guiding them step by step higher and 

"It's fun — a strange feeling" says James 
White, treasurer for the club which has its 
office beside the post office in the Student 
Union. "Have you ever dreamt of flying? 
This is the way to make it happen." 






The club on campus has about 25 current 
members, according to White, and does most 
of its instruction at Morningside Flight Park 
in Claremont, NH. Every semester, the group 
brings 15 to 20 interested people into the 
park for a two day weekend where profes- 
sional instructors monitor their progress. 

"We have lots of rugged equipment, in- 
cluding about 12 gliders, so it's easier to get 
more experience," says Peter Corey, the club' s 
president. "Its easier to overcome the fear of 

heights by taking it on gradual! 
and the thrill would possibly dt 
tract you from the height." 

"They don't send anyone whin 
not ready, it's a very gradual thinjij 
Corey said. "Of course, anyone w. 
doesn't recognize his or her limn 
runs the risk of getting hurt. Bulii 
you're careful about it, it can ben 
safe, incredibly fun experience a 
ery flight." 

Corey and White both stresss 
that hang gliding is not to be confused wv 
sky-diving, because in more advanced stall 
of their sport, it's possible to gain altituu 
whereas with parachuting it's just a matteri 

"I think people's misconception is til 
it' s dangerous and a quick movement," Whl' 
said, "It's a hobby and when you're up thei 
it can last a long time — it's a eupho 

//Tj ave you ever dreamt of flying? This is a way to 
make it happen... when you're up there it can 
last a long time— it's a euphoric feeling."

There are competitions, varying from 
idbag drops, target landing, and cross- 
intry flights, where cameras are used to 
:e shots of different locations as proof . The 
•rent record for time aloft is 32 hours (and 
jet lag!) and the longest distance on the 
}ks is 287 miles, a good sized tour indeed. 

So if you're wondering what it would be

ding can do for you: "Hang gliding be-

Over the 






Most people, at one time or another 
during their lives, have fantasized about 
what it would be like to fly—or, at least, the 
thought has crossed their minds. Obvi- 
ously, it can't be done naturally, but those 
brave enough to want to do it may opt for 
the closest alternative: skydiving. And many 
of them decide to try it for 
the first time at UMass. 
After all, college is a time 
to try new things andhave 
new experiences, right? 
Still, fear of heights or 
falling may hold many 
wanna-be skydivers back. 

"It's a natural fear," 
says Jeff Agard of the 
UMass Parachute Club. 
"But I wanted to do it 
badly, so I ignored the IJKKK^KKKKM 
fear." Indeed he did, as he's made about 65 
jumps since trying it for the first time last 

Established here in 1957, the Para- 
chute Club now has a membership of over 
60. The club is open to anyone, although the

majority are UMass students, since they are 
offered discounts on jumps. 

In order to jump, one must first com- 
plete a class, offered 
Thursday nights, and then 
finish the training at the 
airport the following Sun- 
day morning. After that 
first jump, subsequent 
jumps may be made on 
Fridays, Saturdays, and 
Sundays throughout the 
year, although only the 
more experienced jump- 
ers are allowed during the 

HM \ winter. 

In the Fall of 1993, about 20 people 
jumped. "But the club is usually more active 
in the Spring— the weather is nicer, plus 
you have all summer to practice if you're a 
beginner," says hard-core jumper Agard.

"And a one, two, three; one, 
two, three..." If you've ever 
taken any kind of dance class, 
these words probably were prob- 
ably ingrained into your head as 
you stepped, spun and leapt 
around the dance floor. Now, 
for the first time, the UMass 
Dance Club took their one-two- 
threes onto the stage and in front 
of a team of 

^ judges. 
The idea for the 
Dance Club was born not 
too long ago when a group 
of ballroom dance stu- 
dents decided to bring 
their Waltzing and Tango 
talent into competition as 
well as to the local dances 
in the Five College area. 
The dancers formed the 
group in the fall of 1993 
and named it "In-Step," open to all Social 
Dance students or anyone else in the Five 
College area with an interest in competing. 

Although it is not very large now, the 
club is hoping to grow as more become 
aware of the exciting opportunities it of- 
fers. General meetings are held on Sunday 
afternoons and competition meetings are 
held on Wednesday nights. The club also 

holds regular dance workshops open to any- 
one interested. In the past these have in- 
cluded a five hour workshop the club co- 
sponsored last September with the U.S. 
Amateur Ballroom Dance Association 
taught by renowned instructors Randy Deats 
and Kathy St. Jean of the Youth College 

"In-Step" enters competitions with 
other colleges and high schools from all 
over New England and has 
competed with schools as 
far away as Harvard and 
Yale. In January, the club 
traveled to Clearwater, FL 
for the International Dance 
Festival. The festival was 
attended by universities, 
high schools, middle 
schools and adult dance 
teams from all over the 

Still less than a year 
old, "In-Step" will hopefully keep growing 
as membership increases and enthusiasm 
over dancing continues to grow. So if you're 
ever in the mood for a good time and for 
some good spirited competition, grab a part- 
ner and get ready to Cha-Cha your way 
around New England.

The spring of 1993 was a trying 
time for the Air Force ROTC. Only 
25 people out of 18,000 were aiming 
high last spring which motivated an 
investigation by the Academic Af- 
fairs committee into the contribu- 
tions that the Air Force ROTC made 
to the campus. The Air Force ROTC, 
also known as the department of 
Aerospace Studies, is unique at the 
University in that it is the only pro- 
gram which upon graduation a stu- 
dent can become an officer. It offers 
courses in Aerospace Studies for its 
cadets and the general campus com- 
munity, and gives those involved in 
its honor society the opportunity to 
participate in a variety of commu- 
nity services. 

This fall, enrollment in the Air 
Force ROTC increased by 30% to 33 
while other members continue in 
their duties on and off campus. The 
program "gives students opportu- 
nities to get additional leadership 
experience," said Major Koren, an 
assistant professor of Aerospace 
Studies. On campus, the officers in 
training are the color guard at bas- 
ketball games and cooperate with 
the Army ROTC in displaying the 
school's colors at football games. 
Graduations, at least for the time 
being, will not be devoid of the four 
ship (four planes in formation) fly- 
ing overhead, also done by the Air 
Force ROTC in conjunction with The 
Barnes Air National Guard. On Vet- 
erans Day they hold the annual vigil 
to commemorate those still missing 
in action. 

The 24-hour vigil was held by 
the Air Force ROTC with assistance 
from the Army ROTC . The ceremony 
held as is customary in the front of

Memorial Hall. They had on 
display a bamboo cage to re- 
member those still missing 
in action. A former prisoner 
of war came to talk to those 
participating in the vigil, as 
well as those passing by. The 
ceremony was also brought 
to those in the surrounding 
towns on Channel 22 News. 

Off campus, the Arnold 
Air Society, the Air Force 
ROTC's honor society, put 
hours in towards the com- 
munity, including helping out in the duties 
of cooking and serving at food kitchens in the 
area. The society also made regular visits to 
the Old Soldier's Home for retired veterans, 
as well as to Bright Side, a home for troubled 
children. But, as it stood last spring, these 
programs were on the brink of elimination. 

The verdict: The program received a 
three year grace period in which the pro- 



gram will try to continue to grow, at the m

The Cape Verdean Islands are an archipelaji; 
of ten islands, located 360 kilometers froo

uninhabited upon discovery by the Portuguese 
and other Europeans later settled in the island 
Soon after, slaves were brought to the island fro< 
Guinea-Bissau. The transfusion of these two race 
created the Cape Verdean Crioulo Culture. 

The Cape Verdean Islands became indepei 
dent on July 5, 1975. Because of famine an 
drought, as well as the many jobs that becani 
available aboard whaling ships that stopped in til 
islands and the fact that jobs opened up in til

New Bedford, many Cape Verdeans emigratedd 
the United States beginning in the 1 860' s. Todali 
there are over 350,000 Cape Verdeans, imrrn 
grants and descendants, in the United States. 

Here at UMass, there are over sixty Caa 
Verdean students. One of the vital support mechl 
nisms for Cape Verdean Students has been tl 
Cape Verdean Student Alliance. The Allianr 
was created in 1982 by a group of Cape Verde* 
Students and staff in order to support the Caa 
Verdean population at the University. One of i 
primary goals of the organization has been i 
promote and maintain the Cape Verdean Cultui 
at the University and throughout the Five Collee 
Area. This has typically been done by holding 1 1 
annual Cape Verdean Nights as well as the Caa 



idean Awareness Week, which concludes with 
Zape Verdean Awareness day. Through these 
snts, the Alliance has spon- 
:ed guest speakers, dancers, 
isicians artists and others who 
ve presented the campus with 
ferent aspects of the Cape

t only supports its members

for others to learn and experience the culture. "I 
was happy to be a member because everyone was 
so friendly," Senior Anne Marie de Barros says. 
"I found the Alliance helpful because I was not 
born in Cape Verde and through the Alliance I 
was able to learn many things about my culture 
and history that I didn't know." 

For many, the Cape Verdean Student Alli- 
ance has been a home away from home. "The 
Cape Verdean Student Alliance makes me feel at

Intervarsity Christian Fellowship' s pur- 
pose is to build a fellowship where all 
students can learn more about true Chris- 
tianity. Christian students from all church 
backgrounds can grow in their faith and 
students who are interested in investigating 
Christianity for any reason can gain better 

Intervarsity Christian Fellowship has 
been an RSO at UMass since the 1950's. 
The UMass chapter is affiliated with the 
national Intervarsity Christian Fellowship 
organization, which has chapters on col- 
lege campuses across the United States. 

This year, the chapter' s three goals were 
to become involved with the diversity of 
ethnicity represented on campus, to help 
promote a true understanding of Christian- 
ity in the community, and to pray consis- 
tently for the world and individuals. 

The group held meetings Friday nights 
in the Campus Center. These highlighted a 
speaker and a time of singing as well as 
games and skits. One Friday night each 
semester, they got together with the other 
Christian groups on campus for a "joint 
worship celebration." 

They also sponsor "Bible studies" in 
each residential area one night a week. This 
year's topic was the Gospel of Mark. The 
groups spent time analyzing passages for 
themselves, rather than relying on others' 

These activities allowed students to get 
to know other students, become familiar 

with the Bible, and feel like part of the

dents drove to Illinois to participate in 
Urbana, a global missions conference at the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. 
The conference is held every three years 
and is attended by 20,000 students from 
throughout the world. 

"I'm really looking forward to Urbana 
because I will probably go into missions 
work after graduation and that's what the 
conference is all about," said senior Botany 
major Kristen Timothy. "It will also be a lot 
of fun to take a road trip with twenty of my 

Each semester, the fellowship took a 
weekend retreat to a place in New England 
where they could escape from campus and 
become more familiar with one another, as 
well as God. In the fall, they went to Cape 
Cod, where they studied some Bible pas- 
sages and spent time on the beach listening 
to the ocean and singing. 

The group planned to bring a former 
Broadway actor to campus in the spring to 
perform a one-man interpretation of the 
Gospel of Luke. They also hoped to spon- 
sor an activity which would promote cul- 
tural and racial harmony.

The Asian American Student 
Association (A AS A) was founded 
26 years ago to promote the needs 
of Asian and Asian American stu- 
dents. Our purpose is to create a 
supportive atmosphere for all 
Asian and Asian American stu-

in the past few years and now is 
the largest minority on campus.

"Community Service" is the buzzwoi 
of the 90's as President Clinton signed til 
National Service Bill into a law. On the UMa; 
campus, a program operating since the mi 
1980's continued it's mission to serve ti 
educational community surroundir 
Amherst. This program is called TEAMS ar 
it's not about sports. It stands for Tutorir 
Enrichment Assistance Models with School 
translated, this means that students fro: 
UMass go to area schools and tutor cultu 
ally and linguistically diverse students. 

Adjunct Associate Professor of the Schoi 
of Education Robert W. Maloy and Professi 
of Education Byrd L. Jones co-direct til 
project that began in the spring of 1984. Thei 
two professors wanted to integrate studyin 
cultural diversity in the classroom with 1 
cial action in the community. To sum it ui 
Bob Maloy says, "We wanted to create* 
project where students could analyze til 
world and its problems, but could also go oi 
into the community and accomplish positi'i 
things." He also said they wanted to "pra 
vide resources to schools and give our sfcl 
dents the opportunity to make a difference 




When the TEAMS project started, they 
d only 10 students from UMass tutoring 
utheast Asian Students from Amherst High 
hool. Now, more than 700 University stu- 
nts have offered over 42,000 hours of aca- 
mic assistance to several thousand Asian, 
tino, African American and Russian stu- 
nts as well as individuals from many more 
verse groups. The class started out as an 
dependent study. It then evolved into Edu- 
tion 497, "Tutoring in Schools", a three 
jdit class offered through the School of 
lucation. The sites of tutoring also grew to 
elude schools from Holyoke, Green- 
:ld, Northampton, 
orence, Sunder- 
id, Easthampton, 
ucopee, on-campus 
ograms and Alter- 
tive Education Pro- 

College students have many leadership 
roles in the program including being a tutor, 
a site coordinator, or a facilitator of the class 
seminars. When a tutor goes through the 
program and becomes a site coordinator, 
they attend the Education 597 "Leadership 
Class" which focuses on studying 
multicultural education in-depth. 

Every semester, TEAMS recruits new 
tutors and it hopes to expand the program 
throughout the Five-College area. 

TEAMS tutors benefit not only from 
knowing that they are helping others, but 
also from the exhilaration of new challenges 

every time they tutor. Sean Warner, 
site coordinator and tutor at the 
Westover Job Corps Center felt that 
"When you are a TEAMS tutor, you 
act as a supportive mechanism for 
individuals and it creates a more 
conducive environment for them to 
learn. " Another student commented 
that "There definitely is a tutor to 
student exhange as I am learning 
more from my students than they 
are learning from me."

Founded in 1969, the Black Mass Com- 
munications Project has provided the Asian, 
Latin, African, and Native American Com- 
munity in and around the Five-College area 
with a variety of radio, video, and public 
service programming. BMCP also hosts so- 
cial and educational events i^HHIMB 
such as cultural plays, guest 
lectures, and the annual 
dance party in the spring, and 
the annual "JEANS & T- 
SHIRT" party in the fall. 

Keeping in mind the 
ever-changing interests of the 
ALANA Community, the 
Black Mass Communication ^^^^^^^^ 
Project assists in collaboration with a diver- 
sity of student groups on campus, such as the 
New World Theater, Hillel, The Black Stu- 
dent Union, University Productions & Con- 
certs, and the Office of Third World Affairs. 

As a registered student organization, 
BMCP encourages students on and around 

//The BMCP con- 
tinues to foster 
educational and 
cultural growth in 
the ALANA com- 

the campus to become involved with one of 
the premier organizations in the Five-Col- 
lege area. The management board of BMCP, 
past and present, has consisted of students at 
the University whose majors range from Law 
to Communications and Film. 

This year, the Black Mass 
Communications Project is 
celebrating its 25th anniver- 
sary as a student run organi- 
zation on the campus of the 
University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst. This anniversary 
will be very special for the 
returning Alumni and 
present members who have 
^^■■^M been involved with BMCP 
over the years. 

Established to serve the ALANA com- 
munity in areas such as radio and video 
production, the Black Mass Communications 
Project will continue to foster educational 
and cultural growth within the community.

Your One-Stop 

Campus Design & Copy is your one 
stop shop for photocopying, graphic de- 
sign, posters, flyers, resumes, and academic 
packets. A non-profit business initiated and 
managed by 15 students, we maintain the 
lowest prices for copies on campus at five 
cents per exposure. With larger bulk orders, 
a person can take advantage of our lower 
overnight prices. We stock one of the wid- 
est selections of colors and K£^£S5SI 
card stocks on campus and 
most work can be handled 
while you wait. 

Our design depart- 
ment is also the premier 
places on campus to get a 
resume produced. Our 
price of $15 includes the 
design and production of 
ten copies of a resume on 

paper with matching envelopes. In addi- 
tion, resumes are stored on computer disk 
for one year to accommodate any required 
changes. If someone needs assistance in 
choosing a resume format or is having 
trouble getting started, we have a number of 
samples on hand for ideas. 

CD&C is a useful organization be- 
cause it is a completely student managed 
business. One employee says, "Whether

you're a registered student organization in 
need of creating awareness for an upcom- 
ing event, an association or department in 
need of a poster, flyer, or banner, or a 
student looking to spruce up a term paper, 
we can help." However, 
things at CD&C aren't all 
serious. Instances of hu- 
mor occur at times and 
often they are unexpected. 
One employee, Brian, re- 
lated: "I knew I was color 
blind but evidently no one 
else did. It was a Three 
Stooges clip for the rest of 
the day as I fumbled 

per. Ever since then we have had signs 
under all our paper saying what the color is. 
What can I say? I'm a trend-setter." 

If a resume, course anthology, or pho- 
tocopy is what is needed, CD&C is the 
place to go as it provides the convenience of 
low prices, superior quality, and reliability 
without the hassle of leaving campus.

You walk in the entrance of the office 
and suddenly you're in a new world, a world 
of busy people, ringing telephones and open, 
interested faces: you have entered the Stu- 
dent Activities Office on the fourth floor of 
the Student Union, the heart of student orga- 
nizations on campus. Its friendly staff helps 
both officers and staff of the many student 
groups on campus make their organizations 
as successful and interesting as possible. 

The Student Activities Office's main goal 
is to work with registered student organiza- 
tions to reach their goals. One way it does 
this is through organizational advisors who 
help officers plan effective programs and 

social activities. Some are very active one 
year and not the next." An example of this 
are the environmental rights groups and un- 
derground newspapers that were once very 
active but have since faded out. 

The current registered groups on cam- 
pus cover a broad spectrum of interests in- 
cluding religious, political and social issues. 
Though their expression is diverse, they all 
desire to unify members on campus and 
create an effective/organization and use the 
SAO's many resources. 

The SAO has also changed a lot over the 
years. Initially, the main focus of the SAO 
was simply to create programs and make 

//T A 7e get such a wide range of organizations in need of our services. 
From small groups to organizations as large and well known as 
The Collegian, they all operate through our office." 









take care of issues such as internal 
conflicts, sponsoring fund-raisers 
and recruiting new members. The 
business staff of the SAO offers fi- 
nancial support to groups by man- 
aging accounting and other mon- 
etary issues. The SAO also hosts 
new and interesting programs such 
as the Leadership Conference for 
the heads of organizations, the RSO 
Fair for students interested in get- 
ting involved, and the end of the 
semester Study Break, offering cof- 
fee and bagels to students studying 
for finals. 

Phee Paradise has worked be- 
hind the scenes of SAO for over six 
years and finds that each year there 
is emphasis on different activities 
and interests on campus. She said, 
"Students go through cycles; some 
years more are in political activities 
and some years there are more in 

them happen, what Paradise deems "Burger 
King advising," in essence a fast-food ap- 
proach to management of organizations. Over 
the years SAO has changed its philosophy to 
work with groups, focusing more on people 
than on events. They now stand behind the 
idea that a successful RSO is a result of a 
strong organization and commitment from 
the group that backs it. In such events as the 
Leadership Conference and the RSO fair, all 
the work pays off when students come to- 
gether and make things happen. 

Maureen Cichaski, who has worked in 
Accounts Payable for over a year, pays the 
bills and works with students on financial 
matters. She enjoys interacting with the many 
students who come in and out of the office 
everyday, finding them very friendly. She 
feels that the best part of the job is "getting to 
see how much [the students] learn and grow 
with the responsibility and leadership that 
comes with participation in student activi-

Many women come to college in search 
of eternal friendships, a place to fit in and a 
place where they can feel at home. For 55 
women this place is Alpha Chi Omega, a 
sorority located at 38 Nutting Avenue two 
blocks from the UMass campus. 

Alpha Chi Omega is about women shar- 
ing a common bond of sisterhood and friend- 
ship. Since the majority of the sisters live in 
the house, the sorority is closer and more 
involved than many others on campus. One 
sister says that Alpha Chi Omega "is about 
togetherness Even though we all come from 
different backgrounds, we all come together 
to help the community and each other." 

DeJkatiJI-is essential to the sisters. 
"Women have to want to be here. A positive 
attitude is best for the community and the 
house and UMaSs -in "general." In many 
instances this loyalty takes priority over ev- 
erything else. Says one sister, "being in a 
sorority is very time consuming; sometimes 
it requires spending every night at the house 
and putting off everything else." Her room- 
mate agreed, "it's good to^RlTOw/ there is 
always someone around Inn coiMt on." 

Alumni relations ar e\^ oiyat Alpha 
Chi Omega. There are alwJpPllilBPi around 
the house and most of the sisters see this as a 
positive and helpful aspect of sorority life. 
"Alumni presence shows that the founda- 
tion of leadership and self-esteem built 
through the sorority is essential for survival 
in and out of college," says one 1988 alumni. 

With a combination of leadership, faith- 
fulness and friendship; Alpha Chi Omega 
brings a sense of pride to all of its members. 
Since 1961, Alpha Chi has been a strong 
organization and with the positive reinforce- 
ment they receive from the Greek area, Al- 
pha Chi will be around to serve women and 
the community for many more years.

On North Pleasant St., behind tl« 
reaches of the Lederle Graduate Resean 
Center, lies a fraternity which stands 01 
from the rest in civic responsibility, priol 
and scholarship. This fraternity, Delta Upj! 
Ion, has grown intensively while sponsorii 
various philanthropies throughout t 
Amherst area. 

Delta Upsilon's pledge educator, Do 
glas Tracey , is more than proud of the char:: 
his fraternity has been able to raise in the 1; 
five years. After all, gathering eight to t 
thousand dollars a year says a lot for wl 
Tracey calls "a bunch of college kids."

Alpha Epsilon Pi has participated in 
many philanthropies and done many acts of 
community service in their years here at 
UMass, yet none other have taken on such 
deep personal meaning as their annual ben- 
efit party which funds Leukemia Society. In 
1986, a member's mother had been afflicted 
with the disease, and every year since then a 
canister has been placed at the front door and 
is filled with money by party guests. Last 
year, AEP raised $250 for the cause. This is 
just one of the many contributions the group 
has made to others. 

"Our philanthropies have come a long 
way in helping the community," Larry 
Selikoff, the fraternity's secretary said. "As 
far as the brotherhood, we're smaller and 
more tightlwknit . . . like a family. It's really 
good to k npwy at people care for you." This 
close corj^mur||y unifies them and allows 
them to TOtterhelp others. 

The fraternity has a long list of accom- 
plishments behind t hem. For instance, at the 
end of September the brothers hired a band 
from San Francisco cfartf the "Lost Pilgrims" 
to raise funds for the Midwest Flood Relief 
Fund. They also participate in the "Meals on 
Wheels" program through the Bangs Com- 
munity Center, for whic h thev ta ke food 
from Berkshire Dining Cofcnorffand dis- 
tribute it to the elderly althe mne Elder 
House. The brothers of AlpmEpslon Pi also 
volunteer with the Red Cross m blood drives 
in the Campus Center, set up boxes in the 
dorms for canned goods for the Bosnians and 
conduct a bowl-a-thon at Alley Oops in 
Northampton to benefit the environmental 
group Clean Water Action. 

Selikoff feels the "Hands to Help the 
Homeless" benefit was perhaps their most 
successful philanthropy. The event attracted 
TV crews as well as the local reggae band 
"New Horizons" who played on the front 
lawn. The contributions collected as well as 
money collected from sales of T-shirts and 
food, went to help to keep a homeless shelter 
in Amherst. Companies like IBM, Coca-Cola, 
Domino's Pizza, and many local businesses 
helped sponsor the event.

Another project currently underway in 
the fraternity is the Boltwood Project, a com- 
munity service designed to aid homeless and 
disabled people in the area. AEP raised money 
with a party at which a band called "Mocha 
Java" played. Individual brothers also earn 
credit for taking kids from the project on 
Boltwood Street twice a week for bowling in 
addition to other projects. 

"I think being Greek gives you more of 
an identity; there's more faces you can pick 
out and recognize," Selikoff says. "It gets 
you out of the dorms and there's always 
someone around to hang out with. If you go

Selikoff concludes, "We have a gq| 
reputation on campus. I can't recall any pr<

anything else, We're neutral and pretty mn 
try to keep the peace."

Their Mark 

The sorority of Iota Gamma Upsilon 
has dedicated their sisterhood to the promo- 
tion of diversity, scholarship, and the growth 
of strong friendships that they will carry 
with them in years to come. Iota Gamma 
Upsilon was founded at UMass in 1962 and 
remains the only local sorority without any 
national affiliation. 

Through the past few years the sisters 
have formed a close-knit community within 
the larger environment of the University. 
The sisters have been given greater control 
over the decision making that occurs in their 
house. This self government has allowed 
them to be more flexible and open minded 
with their house rules. Yet this indepen- 
dence has also brought them greater respon- 
sibility. The sisters of Iota Gamma Upsilon 
have learned to run their house like a small 
business, interviewing and hiring much of 
the staff that come in to help maintain the 
house. These decisions have helped bring 
them together and have strengthened the 
tight friendships they have formed within 
their sorority. 

The sisters of Iota Gamma Upsilon par- 
ticipate throughout the year in various ser- 
vice activities. Such activities include Arty's 

Members of IGU: Kathleen Irish, Tara Wolfson,

active social calendar, they are still able to 
keep their GPA's at a respectable standing. 

The sisters of Iota Gamma Upsilon have 
worked hard in the past few years to bring 
back many of the old traditions and combine 
the old ideology of the sorority with the new 
ideas and spirit. The sisterhood of Iota 
Gamma Upsilon is slowly evolving into a 
family of friends and sisters that are making 
their mark not only in the Greek area but in 
the larger community as well.

"We've evolved into one of the more 
respected fraternities on campus," said Louis 
Bettencourt, Vice-President of Alpha Tau 
Gamma, which sums up what the fraternity, 
which only accepts Stockbridge students, 
has achieved since being founded in 1918. 
That's even though "most people don't even 
know us; they think we're a bunch of farm- 

Some of ATG's philanthropies include 
working at Boston soup kitchens and help- 
ing at the Pine Street Inn, a center for battered 
women, also in Boston. This year, they plan, 
through a national program called "A Better 
Chance (ABC)", to take about six disadvan- 
taged high-school kids from New York City 
to Amherst to be clothed, fed, schooled, and 
given a place to stay — in effect, a better chance 
at life. The fraternity donates all returnable 
cans they can collect to the organization, and 
the money goes directly to the children. 

Steve jiuolkowski, brother and Inter- 
Fraternal jLo%n cil President, said that al- 
though taey hare a relatively smaller core of 
men, Alpha Tau Gamma has indeed done a 
lot for themselves and the community around 

"Work is assumed as a responsibility 
rather than a requirement," he said. "Joe in a 
fraternity or sorority indifferent than John in 
a dorm. In a fraternity-Joe will say he'll be a 
leader and will excel as a person. Not to 
overshadow John in a dorm ; it's just that he 
doesn't say he'll do all these tMngs?4 Being a 
brother, it's expected and willhappen." 

A big event that ZiolkowBki notes is the 
fact that they own all the houses on their side 
of the road, and have expanded to two physi- 
cal structures that bear their logo. He says 
that in effect, they are a realty company, as 
ATG alumni own the houses and would 
continue to do so if the chapter ceased to 

Other activities they engage in are the 
Newman Center Phone-a-Thon, which raises 
money for the center, intramural competi- 
tion of various sports, and the well-known 
Greek Week. Social events are also big at 
ATG, and include formals, which are almost 
like a high-school prom, an annual Hallow- 
een party, fraternity-sorority date parties, 
and a Thanksgiving dinner for Stockbridge 

"Give your best to dear old 
Stockbridge — body, heart, and soul," 
Ziolkowski said.

U a RUSH tir Becom cu Gneek 

At the beginning of every semester, 
in the midst of Add /Drop and deciding 
which activities are right for you, another 
option opens: whether or not to "Go 
Greek." As you walk around campus, it's 
hard to miss flyers from various fraterni- 
ties, all beckoning University men to join. 
Or, if you are a woman, you' ve probably 
seen the Concourse table in the Campus 
Center, urging you to pre-register for Rush. 

Rush occurs at the start of semester 
and is defined as the period in which so- 
rorities and fraternities open their houses 
to undergraduate men and women. Last- 
ing a week and a half to two weeks, it gives 
rushees a chance to "sample" and become 
familiar with different houses. The sisters 
and brothers, in turn, have the chance to 
get to know the people interested in their 

There are two different Rush pro- 
cesses that are followed at UMass: Formal 
and Open. Open Rush is the method fol- 
lowed by the fraternities. It allows Univer- 
sity men to visit one house, or several 
houses, or, if they choose, all of the houses. 
Often, someone with an interest in a par- 
ticular fraternity will go only to that one, 
but more often, men aren't sure which one 
they want to join, and go to several. 

Generally, when visiting several 
houses, men like all of them, but feel a 
special bond with one of them right away. 
"I went to three houses," says Paul 
McGourty, a sophomore from Phi Sigma 
Kappa, "but as soon as I came here, I knew 
that I was going to stay." 

Sometimes, men have friends in fra- 
ternities, who influence their decision. "I 
knew some guys in Alpha Chi Rho, and I 
thought it would be good to join a frater- 
nity where I already had friends," says Jon 
Blumenthal, a sophomore. 

Sororities also conduct Open Rush, 
in the fall semester. Women are more 
likely to go to different houses, to get a 
taste of what sorority life is like. "I visited 
all nine sororities," says Sigma Delta Tau 
sister Maria Edoin, "and there were four or 
five that I really liked. I had a hard time 
deciding in the end." 

In the spring, the sororities conduct 
Formal Rush. During Formal Rush, Uni- 
versity women who have registered are 
divided into groups. Each group visits 
each house for a short period of time the 
first night. The next day, each rushee 
receives up to nine invitations but goes 
back to only seven houses of her choice. 
After that, it is narrowed down to five, then 

At the end of the Rush period is Bid Day, 
when each rushee finds out which of the re- 
maining three houses she has been "selected" 
to join. The selection process is completed by 
a representative, often a chapter advisor or an 
alumnus, from each house. 

After the sororities have gone through 
Formal Rush, some conduct an Open Rush the 
following week in order to increase their mem- 
bership. SDT, for example, started out with 
about 15 pledges through Formal Rush, says 
Maria, and ended up with 22 after Open Rush. 

Whether Formal or Open, many rushees 
say that they were glad to have had the oppor- 
tunity to visit the houses. "It was interesting — 
I didn't know anything about sororities," says 
Tara Hazen, a sophomore from Sigma Sigma 
Sigma, "and I was glad to have the chance to 
compare different houses before making my

Tri"-ing New Ideas 

What kind of sorority has no pledges, 
no paddles decorated with sisters' names, 
and no pins that must be worn day and night 
by the pledges? 

Tri-Sigma does now, according to sis- 
ters at the Gamma Iota chapter at UMass. 
"These changes and others have been slowly 
coming about in the past few years," says 
Tri-Sigma vice-president Kristen Danker, and 
officially came into effect in 1993. 

For one thing, there are no more 
"pledges" anticipating the day they become 
sisters. These women, in wait of their sister- 
hood, are now referred to as ihfw^ nem- 
bers." Why? "It's more friendly, SWpre inte- 
grating (it integrates them into the sorority 
right way), and it eliminates hazing com- 
pletely," says sister Tara Hazen. "I think the 
way we treat the new members is nicer — we 
should treat new members with respect, 
cause they will soon be sisters." 

Another thing of the past is the paddl 
that the pledge used to make for her 
Sister." Now, their inscriptions are painted 
upon sailboats, the national Tri-Sigma sym- 
bol, "because paddles have bad, degrading 
connotations, and we wanted to get away 
from that," says Tara. "That's not what we 
are all about." It is not known whether 
paddles were actually ever used for any- 
thing bad, but the connotations were still 

Other Tri-Sigmas around the country 
have followed in the UMass chapter's foot- 
steps and dismissed the use of paddles. Not 
all necessarily use sailboats, but many have 
switched from the paddles to something else, 
says the sisters. 

Most sororities also require their 
pledges to wear a "pledge pin" wherever 
they go during the semester 
before they become full- 
fledged sisters. Not Tri- 
Sigma, however, who this 
year got rid of the manda- 
tory pledge pins. Now, the 
new members are only re- 
quired to wear them on "pin 
days," when the sisters also 
are required to wear their sis- 
ter badges. These pin days 
are held about once a week, 
when everyone dresses up, 


"because we respect our sorority," says Tara. 
"They wear their pins with pride," adds 
Karolyn McNeil, another sister. 

In addition, the sorority now holds 
weekly workshops, presided over by the 
chapter's education chairman and attended 
by all sisters and new members during chap- 
ter meetings. Some of the issues dealt with 
include self-esteem, time management, and 
alcohol education. The sorority hopes to hold 
one for the entire Greek area sometime in the 
near future. 

When asked what they thought of the 
new system, all of the sisters agreed that it is 
"definitely a positive change." With this new 
system, "New members learn what it is like 
to be a sister right away," says Kristen. The 
sisters and new members do more activities 
together now and spend more time on com- 
— ^unity projects. "We ask of our new mem- 
bers what we ask ourselves," says Kristen. 
The sisters are all pleased with the 
fanges and expect to progress further in the 
future. "This is just the first step," says presi- 
dent Stephanie Johnson. "It's important to be 
open to change." 

A%d what do the new members think? 
"Whatiney're doing is good," says new 
member Jennifer Roy. "One reason I picked 
this sorority was because the sisters were 
really friendly — there was no 'we're sisters 
and you're pledges' attitude here." 

"There's no superiority here," says 
Karolyn. "This is definitely a positive change. 
We've come a long way."

Enduring a Hardship 

You may have noticed this past year as 
you walked along North Pleasant Street, that 
the Alpha Chi Rho house no longA exists. 
Or, rather, that it is now being oc/uMed by 
Alpha Tau Gamma who owns /ostVf the 
houses on North Pleasant StreetnvlemDers of 
Alpha Chi Rho were forced to give up their 
house due to "unlivable conditions," but 
hope to get a new one soon. t& 

One might think that without their own 
house, a fraternity would have a hard time 
getting all of the brothers together on a regu- 
lar basis, but this doesn't hold true for Alpha 
Chi Rho. "Most of the brothers live on cam- 
pus, so we meet regularly in dorm rooms, or 
the Dining Commons, or the Campus Cen- 
ter", saysbrother Dave Garappolo. The small 
size of the fraternity (about 25 brothers) also 
makes it easy for everyone to get together. 

Of course there are disadvantages to 
not having a common house. "Living in the 
house was an awesome experience — I have a 
lot of great memories from that year," says 
brother Antonio Endriga. "The pledge classes 
from this year don't have the chance to expe- 
rience that; it's not the same thing." 

The good things about not having a 
mouse, says Antonio, are not having to clean 
it, not having to worry about filling it up 
kyery semester, and not having to pay high 
aues to be in the fraternity. 

Good things and bad things aside, Al- 
pha Chi Rho will probably get a new house in 
the FaM19*4 semester, "hopefully our old 
house mSjJKset Avenue", according to Dave. 
But fomhe time being, says Antonio, "we're 
still the same brotherhood. The most impor- 
tant thing is the people."

The big brown house on North Pleas- 
ant Street situated right next to the UMass 
campus is home to the Sigma Delta Tau 
sorority. The Psi chapter was founded here 
in December of 1945 by a small group of 
women; one of these, Doris Newman, now 
serves as house director. 

With 47 active sisters and 22 pledges in 
the spring, there are bound to be many dif- 
ferent kinds of people making up its mem- 
bership. "Th«e are girls with different ma- 
jors, jobs, activities, goals and interests, from 
different parts ,of the country," says sister 
Maria Edoin. "Ours is probably one of the 
most diverse sororities on campus." 

With 22 new members in the spring, 
there is also a great variety of interests and 
goals within the pled^^class. "We're all dif- 
ferent," says pledge Amy Sher, a freshman, 
"but we all get alcmg " ■ 

Why such a large class? The sisters 
attribute it to a very successful rush turnout.. 
Many women were interested in the house, 
and there was a lot of room for new sisters, 
since a lot of the current sistejS would be 
graduating in 1994 and 1995. JUL 

But they didn't take in 22 pledges sim- 
ply for the sake of getting larger, emphasizes 
Maria . "Quality is more important than quan- 

No matter what its size, Sigma Delta 
Tau is a close knit sorority with much to offer 
its members including exchanges with other 
sororities and fraternities, philanthropies and 
friendships to last forever. "I love it here," 
Amy beams. "I look forward to coming to 
this house every night."

Delta Sigma Theta salutes America's

of which are traditionally Black institu-

"America's Black Colleges: Roots, Re- 
wards, Renewal." During this two-day 
meeting the sorority renews its alle-

programs that negatively infringe 
upon the survival of the Black people

the political process.

After a delay, the Step Show consisted

which allowed the audience to judge three

their two favorites, watched their moves, 
and decided it was a tie — both contestants 
received gift certificates for their agility and 
lack of inhibitions. As a closing number, the 
brothers of Phi Beta Sigma stepped to "The

African men who were brought to America

Iota Phi Theta has been serving the 
University community, Five College Area 
and the Pioneer Valley for the the past 11 
years through community outreach and pro- 
gramming. This year was no different. 
Though the fraternity was established for the 
betterment and uplifting of African- Ameri- 
can men, Beta Beta Chapter carries the dis- 
tinction of having one of the most diverse 
memberships at the University of Massachu- 
setts at Amherst. Membership in this chapter 
includes Africans, African-Americans, 
Asians, Latinos, Native- Americans and West 
Indians from various capacities such as un- 
^tergraduates, graduates, staff and faculty. 

jj| Highlights for this academic year were 
^teeing first in the float competition during 
"Homecoming and also coming in first place 
in the Greek Sing during Greek Week. The 
chapter held two successful blood drives in 
the ,fall and spring semesters respectively, 
co-sponsored Cape Verdean Student Alli- 
ance Week and sponsored the Umoja Spring 
Talent Show and more. As an encore to fiscal 
year 1993-94, Iota Phi Theta will further dem- 
onstrate its commitment to the universal 
multicultural agenda by acknowledging and 
supporting the liberation of South Africa 
and holding true to the Pan-African Con- 
gress theme which is "None of us are free, until 
all of us are free."

In Leaps and Bounds 

Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity, Inc. is a black 
fraternity, founded at Howard University on 
January 9, 1914 by three bold and visionary 
young black men. They envisioned creating 
an organization that would embody all Afri- 
can-American men who looked for creating 
a concept of brotherhood, scholarship and 
service within themselves and communities. 

Phi Beta Sigma currently has approxi- 
mately 100,000 members from the United 
States, Euroce^ Asia, Africa, and the Carib- 
bean. It's mission has always been to raise 
and uplift the black race. The brothers of Phi 
Beta Sigma do this through their many won- 
derful national and local programs. There 
are three national programs of Phi Beta Sigma. 
They are Social Action r .Education, and Big- 
ger and Better Business, together, these pro- 
grams have improved the quality of life of 
blacks in this country. 

The local chapter of Phi Beta Sigma, 
chapter Lambda Nu, was founded in 1985 at 
the University of Massachusetts. Since its 
inception, the local brothers of Beta Sigma 
have always tried to elevate ana culture the 
minds of their people and audiences. They 
have been the direct catalysts for bringing 
speakers like Dr. Leonard Jefferies, the Rev- 
erend Al Sharpton, and the National Repre- 
sentative of the Islamic State, Minister Louis 
Farrakhan. In addition, they have been the 
sponsors of scholarships, study-o-thons, and 
cultural programs. Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity 
Inc. has always been comprised of men who 
are in "the business of taking care of busi-

Power of the 


"It all seemed to come together," senior 
goalie Sherry Keenan said, describing how 
the members of this year's UMass Women's 
Soccer team finished off the season with 17 
wins, won their regional tournament, made it 
to the Final Four for the first time in their four- 
year careers, and boasted the second most 
successful record in the country, next to num- 
ber one North Carolina. 

The team went undefeated this year until 
they played Santa Clara in California and lost 
1-0. By the end of the regular season.their 
record included 16 wins, and only one more 
loss, to William and Mary, as well as an eight 
game winning streak. In the playoffs, UMass 
came up against old rival North Carolina, 
national champions for ten of the last eleven 
seasons. During the first half of the game 
UMass gave up three goals and scored none. 
In the second half, though, the team rallied 
back, scoring one and allowing a single goal, 
finishing off the season 17-3-3. 

Talented players and good coaching 
drove this season, and senior Briana Scurry 
did nothing but bat away the competition. 
Recruited from Minnesota, Scurry played 
four years in high school and was All Ameri- 
can before she decided to head East. Scurry 
started out splitting time with goalie Skye 
Eddy her first year, tended all sophomore 
year because Eddy was hurt, split time last 
year, and this year goal tended every single 

Scurry picked UMass largely because of 
Coach Jim Rudy, who, since 1988, has helped 
to hone her skills so finely that she has been 
named the number one player on the National 
Team, the US Professional Women's Soccer 

According to Keenan, "Scurry has been 
watched by every coach in the country. She is 
the best goalkeeper in the country. I' ve worked 
with exceptional talent and she is the best of 
the best." 

"Goaltending is a separate position, an 
individual role within a team sport," said 
Scurry. "Goaltending in the end can decide 


winning and losing. I see it as a job I' m trying 
to perfect. Going into the Final Four, we 
allowed fewer goals to get by us than any 
other team in the country. There's strength in 
our defense. We don't give up goals. But I'll 
be the first to say I had a lot of help." 

Much of that help came from the pair of 
Heidi Kocher and Paula Wilkins. Kocher 
mixed her defensive speed with her skill at 
tracking the ball. Wilkins played with deadly 
accuracy, watching and seeing the plays on 
the field and directing the action. The two 
combined their talents and played consis- 
tently strong defense all year. 

Offensively, Rachel Leduc and Nicole 
Roberts were part of the team that scored 
more goals in the first half of the season than 
they had scored in other entire years. Leduc 
played a strong physical game all year long, 
always charging, sometimes appearing out of 
nowhere to take control of the ball, fighting 
hard in scrambles. Roberts relied on nimble 
footwork, fast-paced dribbling, and tricky 
maneuvering to move past defenders and 
score. The two played uniquely and worked 
together well. 

Freshman talent was a surprise addition 
to the team's power. "There were great fresh- 
men coming in, talent we didn't even realize 
or count on having," said Scurry. They adapted 
to the new level incredibly well and as a result 
several started games. 

"There was a difference in the air this 
year," Keenan said. "It all seemed to come 
together. There weren't any doubts as to what 
we could do and we believed we could beat 
every team we played." 

Women' s Soccer has always been strong 
at UMass. From 1983-1988 the team made it 
to the Final Fours every year. 

"But when I got here," explained Scurry, 
"UConn was the top team in the region. We 
were still close to the top. Now," she de- 
clared, "We are the power of the East."

On Good Footing... 

Fans at the Richard F. Garber Field begin 
screaming and cheering as the Men's Soccer 
team rushes onto the field. Coach Sam Koch 
blows the whistle and the game begins. Right 
from the onset the players wreak havoc on 
their opponents. Senior forward Randy Jacobs 
scores the first goal that prepares the Minute- 
men for victory once again. 

Jacobs, an Atlantic- 1 player of the week 
in October, was this year's Men's Soccer 
team's leading scorer and in 1992, he scored 
17 goals, the most ever by a Minuteman in 
one season. Koch calls Jacobs the "most 
prolific goal scorer in school history." 
Assisstant Coach Rob Donnenwirth says 
"Jacobs can be counted on in crunch time. 
The team can depend on him to come through 
for them." As for Jacobs himself, he looks 
forward to each time and tries his hardest to 
live up to the team's expectations. 

Freshman goalie Brackie Reyes "de- 
serves credit for keeping shot totals low and 

controlling defenders in front of him," says 
Donnenwirth. Another freshman, Forward 
Dave Siljanovski, was honored in September 
as an Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week. 

The team still surfaced with a 9- 1 record 
for 1993 despite injuries of two key players, 
Brad Miller and Justin Edelman. Koch says 
that Miller and Edelman' s absences in sev- 
eral games made it a little tougher for the team 
but cooperation and motivation helped them 
to explode into another victory for the Min- 
utemen and for UMass. 

Next year's team promises to be the one 
to watch. This year gave the newcomers the 
essential experience and toughened them up 
for the up-and-coming fight for the A- 10 
Championships. UMass is no longer the team 
that lags behind, it is the one of the top 
contenders for the finals.

Touching the Future 

Eric Thimas is from West Haven, CT, and is utilized as a split end and punt 
returner for the UMass football team. As a freshman, he received the Gold 
Helmet Award from the New England Football Writers and Coca-Cola, among 
many other honors.

narrow. She always told me I could do any- 
thing I put my mind to, but she was always 
against me playing football because I'm so 
small (5'5"; 155 lbs. ). She always wanted me 
to play baseball for some odd reason. Both

prevalent in my life. They told me that knowl-

Question: How do you improve on a 7-3 
1992 campaign in which the team surprised 
every critic and made Coach Mike Hodges a 
success in his first year? 

Answer: If you're the University of Mas- 
sachusetts football team, you win eight games 
in 1993, narrowly miss out on the Division I- 
A A playoffs and finish the year with a mother 
lode of recruits. 

The Minutemen surprised every critic 
for the second consecutive season, initially 
by losing two of its first three games. After an 
opening day 37-7 win over Holy Cross, UMass 
lost on the road to Maine and Boston Univer- 
sity, a team which reached the semifinals of 
the playoffs. 

Rene Ingoglia, the 1992 freshman phe- 
nomenon, showed no effect of a sophomore 
slide, moving from tailback to fullback. 
Ingoglia picked up 1,285 yards even though 
he played inj ured through the last three games 
of the season. 

He wasn't alone in the backfield, either. 
John Johnson's return from two sub-par sea- 
sons made Ingoglia' s move more feasible. As 
a tailback, Johnson ran for 899 yards in 1993 
and became one of only four Minutemen to 
rush for over 2,000 yards in a career. 

It was the fourth game of the season, an 
October 2 contest with James Madison Uni- 

versity ( JMU), in which the Minutemen came 
back. Ingoglia rushed for 204 yards and UMass 
beat JMU 33-10. 

A different player stepped up every week. 
Cornerback Breon Parker, playing his first 
season at UMass, won Sports Illustrated' s 
Defensive Player of the Week because of his 
three interceptions (one returned for a touch- 
down) in UMass' October 9th win over Rhode 

The following week, the Minutemen trav- 
eled to UConn and upset a Husky squad when 
the rushing game and defense once again 
came up big. Freshman Eric Oke, one of 
many contributing newcomers, hit the win- 
ning field goal to propel UMass to a 20-17 

Delaware was this year' s Homecoming 
opponent, and many critics were wondering 
the intelligence of scheduling such a tough 
team at Homecoming. Hodges' team proved 
to be the better team as UMass won 43-29. 
Quarterback Andrew McNeilly rushed for 
two touchdowns and provided the leadership 
the Minutemen needed in defeating the Yan- 
kee Conference's only true dynasty. 

McNeilly would get injured the next 
week during practice and freshman Vito Cam- 
panile had to step in for the October 30th 
contest at Northeastern, ( continued on p. 91)

It was another freshman, Frank Alessio, 
who came up big in the game's final minute 

by rushing 54 yards for a touchdown in the 
stunning 21-17 comeback win which spoiled 
Northeastern' s Homecoming. 

Richmond attempted to derail the UMass 
juggernaut. Reid, the Spiders' defensive co- 
ordinator, came close but Eric Thimas' 140 
receiving yards helped UMass squeeze out 
the 29-24 victory. 

The following week saw the winning 
streak come to an end as the Minutemen's

playoff chances were severely damaged when 
William and Mary beat UMass 45-28 in 

Johnson did his part in the season finale, 
a 15-13 victory over New Hampshire that 
gave UMass its winningest season ever. 
Johnson had a 68-yard run for a touchdown 
and won the game's MVP award. 

While the offense put points on the board, 
it was the unheralded players on the defense 
and offensive lines which really made the 
season. Mario Perry and Scott Assencoa were 
the two impact players. Both senior outside 
linebackers will be missed next year. Matt 
Rajotk, Brian Corcoran and Venard Fennell 
were also impact players on the defense. 

Bill Durkin, Phil Hallard and Andy 
Leblanc were the strength of the unheralded 
offensive line, which provided the blocks for 
the record-holding UMass rushing attack. 
The simple philosophy of holding opposing 
teams on the defense and running the ball on 
offense proved effective. 

UMass football was back, and although 
the team failed to reach the playoffs, the point 
was proven: the Minutemen took a back seat 
to no one on the football field.

The UMass Women's Field Hockey 
Team had a strong season in 1 993, ending the 
year with 1 9 wins, a number five ranking, and 
three of its members making All-American 

With only four losses to the season, the 
Minutewomen were tough to beat. Among 
the most impressive of their wins was a game 
played against Lafayette in October. This 
game was especially challenging because 
Lafayette's team attacked UMass with four 
on the offense, instead of the usual three. Hard 
as it was to defend their goal, the 
Minutewomen came through with a 1-0 win. 

In addition to numerous wins, the team 
saw three women receive All-American hon- 
ors. Senior forward Jenn Salisbury was named 
to the First Team All-American this year, and 
also to the Northeast Region All-American 
First Team, First Team All- Atlantic- 10, and

Year. Her record for the season showed a 
total of 39 points, with 8 goals scored and 23 

Also awarded All-American honors were 
senior Tara Jelley and Holly Hockenbrock. 
Jelley, a forward and one of the team's co- 
captains, earned places on the All-A-10 First 
Team and on the Northeast Region First 
Team All-American. Hockenbrock, a 
midfielder and also a co-captain,finished the 
year with spots on the Third Team All-Ameri- 
can, First Team A- 10, and with the First 
Team Northeast Region All-American. Both 
women finished with impressive scores on 
their records; Jelley with 30 points and 
Hockenbrock with 32 points. 

The players weren't the only ones to 
shine. Pam Hixon, the team's coach since 
1 978, was named Northeast Region Coach of 
the Year for the second year in a row. Since 
becoming coach, she has now seen 36 players 
altogether selected to All-American teams.

The soft thud of her Nike running shoes 
on the dry soil of the earth was all that could

her — the course in which all her stamina and 
her training would be needed. Now the pain 
of her shin splints was becoming very evi- 

Indeed, those who went out for the 
women's cross country team had to be ready 
for work. Each day the workouts got more 
strenuous and intense. Every Monday, 
Wednesday, and Friday consisted of concen- 
trated drills, practice distance runs spanning 
about eight miles, and a constant review of 
strategies for two hours a day. Tuesday and 
Thursday consisted of five to ten repetitions 
of 600, 800, or 1000 meter dashes. Sundays 
consisted of a three-hour conditioning work- 
out of running and weights. According to 
junior Julie Moreau, "The commitment to be 
there every day and often on weekends is 
what separated the good runners from the 
great runners." It may have seemed at the 
time that what really mattered was the desire 
to win but it was individual skill, talent, and 
unselfish commitment that mattered in the 

The Women's Cross Country team was 
undefeated in dual meets and maintained 
their winning streak to clutch second place in 
the Atlantic- 10, third place in the New En- 
glands and 4th place at the ECAC's. These 
achievements were largely due to talented 
players such as Freshmen Kate Greenia and 
Melissa Langevin and Sophomore Jennifer 
Waeger. Freshman Kristin Donaldson said, 
"Everyone worked together to accomplish 
our goals. We pushed ourselves because we 
were determined to achieve excellence." 

Personal records were also set during the 
1993 season. Langevin ranked 14th overall 
for district one. Waeger and Donaldson had 
personal bests at sixth and seventh, respec- 
tively. Despite injuries, senior twin co-cap- 
tains Kim and Kelly Liljeblad became third 
and fourth on the team and ranked 25th and 
29th overall. 

Freshman Kate Greenia said, "Greater 
than all the success and winning is the friend- 
ships and bonding that are formed." Sopho- 
more Jen Waeger agreed. "Today's great

times are tomorrow's cherished memories." 
Another runner stated, "We're like a family. 
We support each other in all the team deci- 
sions. If one of us fails to perform, it rubs off 
on all of us. We all try to be there for each 
other, no matter what." 

Fans were highly energized by the 
Minutewomen's performance this season. 
Ashley Malton said, "The relationship be- 
tween the runners and the coach is obvious. 
They work together and they still have fun." 

Freshman Melissa Langevin spoke of 
the force that drives her to run. "Running is 
power. I can feel the energy in my entire body 
and for that space of time the rest of the world 
falls away." 

Coach Julie LaFreniere said that the true 
test was seeing the younger, less experienced 
runners stand up to the challenge. "We have 
developed a reputation of strength with a 
myriad of talented athletes leading the team." 

Summing up the team's future, one run- 
ner claimed that "the team had great depth

with their talent and Coach LaFreniere' s lead- 
ership, they can accomplish anything they

This year the University of Massachu- 
setts Men's Cross Country team had a very 
successful season, winning four of their five 
dual meets. The team's strong core of fresh- 
man and sophomore runners, coupled with 
the experience brought by returning upper- 
classmen, gave the harriers new depth and 
will provide the opportunity to improve 
greatly in the coming years. The hard work 
and dedication of the entire squad gives the 
team a positive outlook for the seasons to 

Two athletes who proved to be prime 
contenders at the Eastern Conference Ath- 
letic Championships were junior Theodore 
Towse and senior Captain Kevin Greenhalgh. 
Towse won top honors in the 10 Kilometer 
race and Greenhalgh was a third place fin- 
isher in the 5K event. In the New England 
Championships, UMass was boosted by the 
10th and 13th place finishes of Towse and 
Greenhalgh and had a second place victory at 
the Eastern Conference Championships. This 
was a great improvement over last year's 
third place finish at the same meet. The 
Minutemen finished out the season with a 
ninth place finishing at the NCAA District I 
meet and a 24th place finish at the IC4A 
meet. Several athletes placed in the top 50 in

the NCAA District I Championship. Among 
them were Jonathan Way, Matthew Behl, 
Ethan Nedeau, and Kevin Greenhalgh. 

This year the team was strongly backed 
by seniors Chris Povolny and Kevin 
Greenhalgh. The seniors gave the team a 
sense of leadership and set an example for the 
underclassmen. According to Head Coach 
Ken O'Brien, the underclassmen benefited 
from the performance of the older athletes by 
learning about pacing, concentration, and 
determination. These athletes know that skill 
is something you develop over time and it 
requires a focused and positive attitude. 

The Minutemen are looking forward to 
the future. Strength, immense determina- 
tion, and obvious skill will make the team 
powerful contenders in New England.

An 0-3 start plagued the University of 
Massachusetts women' s tennis team through- 
out the fall season, but behind the stellar play 
of their young talent managed to piece to- 
gether a 5-5 finish and fourth place tie in the 
New England Championships last fall. 

Second year coach Judy Dixon turned 
the program that was once threatened by 
athletic department cuts into a future con- 
tender. Building on a base of young talent, 
Dixon expects the team to improve vastly 
over the coming years. 

The team was led by sophomore Liesel 
Sitton, who walked on in her freshman year to 
become one of New England' s ten best colle- 
giate tennis players. The native of San Juan, 
Puerto Rico shrugged off the brutal cold last 
fall to finish the season with a near perfect 
singles record. Sitton was impressive in the 
New Englands, finishing second after losing 
a tough match to Boston College's Hope 

"She played superb tennis [that] week- 
end," said Dixon. "There wasn't much differ- 
ence between her and her opponent." 

Sitton' s troubles in the New Englands 
stemmed from the fact that her opponent was 
used to the tough competition that a schedule 
like BC's allows. The following weekend 
Sitton fared well in another tough tourna- 
ment, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association's 
Rolex Championships at the University of 

While Dixon heralds Sitton as possibly 
the best player ever to lend her skills to the 
Massachusetts program, the talent on her 
team does not end there. Highly recruited

number one singles player, returns a volley.

freshman Liz Durant stepped in to the number 
two singles spot. Durant accumulated a num- 
ber of singles victories there, and teamed with 
Sitton to be a potent doubles entry. 

"She was great," Dixon said of Durant. 
"You usually don't expect those types of 
performances from a freshman." 

While the team is looking towards the 
future, there is no reason to undermine the 
play of the upperclassmen. The Minutewomen 
were lead by the experience of seniors Stacey 
Scheckner and captain Pam Levine. Levine 
struggled late in the season as she tried to 
battle a case of mono as well as the tough 
opposition on the court. Her mono eventually 
won, as she was forced to sit out the Rolex 
Tournament where she was scheduled to play 
doubles with Scheckner. 

Junior Ana DeChecke and Mary Edwards 
provided some key victories for the 
Minutewomen, but will be battling for spots 
on the team next year as Dixon steps up the 
intensity of her recruiting. Edwards, who lost 
some close matches but fared well in doubles 
play, was hindered in the early portion of the 
season by a shoulder injury. 

While the team's future successes or 
failures will primarily stem from the younger 
players, there is no doubt that the 
Minutewomen will be turning to the return- 
ing upperclassmen next season for leadership 
and experience. With the continued hard work 
and the guidance of Coach Dixon, the team's 
future looks bright.

In my four 
years on the 
team, I've 
made great 
friends and 
ship and ca- 
more pre- 
cious to me 
than any- 
thing I got 
out of a text- 


The serves were high and the strokes 
were strong. The tension radiating from the 
court could be felt by the players, the coaches 
and by the fans. Occasionally a grunt or a 
shout would resound from different players 
but it was the rhythmic sound of a ball against 
a racket that kept the excitement of all in 

The Men's Tennis team had reason to 
expect success this fall. Throughout the sea- 
son they collected a string of victories that 
ended with a final record of 3-2. Kasper 
Vaala, an exchange student from Denmark, 
said, "As a team we encouraged and pushed 
each other. As friends we depended on and 
helped each other." 

Training for the fall season included 7 
a.m. warm ups and drills followed by morn- 
ing practice. Two times a week the team 
lifted weights and did aerobics to remain 
conditioned and strengthened. One team 
member, who practiced yoga regularly, stated, 
"If my mind wasn' t focused my body couldn' t 
be either." 

Leading the men's tennis team was 
Coach Dixon and Assistant Coach David 
Klienman. When asked if having a female 
head coach was strange, Vaala said, "No, 
because Coach Dixon is very comforting. 
She is always there to guide us." Another 
player agreed admiringly, stating, "Gender

has nothing to do with the makings of a great 
coach. I felt secure knowing that I could 
always look to her for praise when the serve 
was good, or for encouragement if it wasn't 
so good." However, another player said, "At 
first I thought it would be easy to take advan- 
tage of her as a coach because she was fe- 
male. But after seeing that she doesn't put up 
with anybody who isn't completely dedi- 
cated to the sport, I have a whole new respect 
for her." 

Tim Lipski, an SOM junior and Division 
One Honorary, explains, "Despite recent set- 
backs, the team still managed to come out on 
top." Last year, the team's varsity status was 
dropped. The school decided that "the men's 
tennis team could no longer be registered as 
University Varsity affiliation." Also, the 
University would not allow the team to raise 
their own funds. One player said, "It bothers 
me that UMass has such a hold over us like 
that. We all want what is best for the team but 
somewhere a line has been crossed." 

Assistant Coach David Klienman said 
that the fall season's team "was filled with 
immense spirit and dedication," and insisted 
that every player deserved to be commended 
for his performance. He named Ankur 
Baishya, David Bradley and Kasper Vaala as 
the most impressive players and concluded 
by saying, "In my four years on the team I've 
made great friends and learned about sports- 
manship and camaraderie. That's more pre- 
cious to me than anything I got out of a

Quick. Tough. Powerful. These are all 
adjectives used to describe the Women' s Vol- 
leyball team here at UMass. Part of their 
success can be attributed to the team's coach, 
Bonnie Kenny. As a 1 982 member of the SEC 
All Tournament team, Kenny knows what 
volleyball is really all about. Her knowledge 
and skill have played important roles in the 
Minutewomen's success. 


Also involved are the star players Rachel 
Sky, Cass Anderson and Dionne Nash. Sky, a 
sophomore transfer student from Penn State, 
contributed to several team victories and is 
the fifteenth in the country for digs per game 
according to national statistical rankings. 
Kenny calls Sky the "most court-wise player." 
Anderson, the only upper classman, is a valu- 
able setter and Nash, a (continued on p. 103) 


On the 
whole, the 
team is 
and power- 
ful. Indi- 
each athlete 
different to 
the sport.

fornia, is deemed "the most athletic indi- 
vidual on the team" by her coach. 

The rest of the team consists of eight 
freshmen including kill leaders Kim Mizner 
and Susan Maga. Maga missed the first three 
matches which had a strong impact on the 
success of the team. After her return the team 
was able to play back to back matches which 
made things "a little easier" according to 

Kenny also said that the team's success 
has been an individual as well as a group 
effort. "On the whole the team is skilled, 

dedicated, and powerful." Individually, each 
athlete brings something different to the sport. 
"Nash brings her skill and encouragement. 
Sky brings her knowledge and endurance. 
Mizner brings a positive attitude, her love of 
the sport, and her good spirits." Overall, 
Kenny says that all the athletes have com- 
mand over their bodies and their minds, 
which has helped them with concentration 
and lead the team to continuous victories. 

Mizner and Nash agree that without 
Kenny, Women' s Volleyball would not have 
known the success shown throughout the 
season. And Kenny returns the admiration by 
saying that "the team is comprised of a good 
nucleus of players. It says a lot about UMass 
and the type of kid that comes here."

Everybody knows every bit there is to 
know about the basketball team. Everybody 
also knows about the baseball, football, soft- 
ball, field hockey, and even lacrosse teams. 
People have heard of the swim team, track 
teams, and the tennis team. But the ski team 
. . . what's that? The majority of people don't 
even know that UMass has a ski team. We 
understand that skiing isn't a real spectator 
sport. Standing out in the cold to watch some- 
one come down for a total time of 50 seconds 
may not seem totally worth the two hour drive 
to the mountain. (People complained enough 
waiting an hour for Temple basketball tick- 
ets.) So, in order to provide some background 
on the team, we would like to clear up some 
common misconceptions: 
#1 — "Isn't the ski team the group who takes 
ski trips to Killington and other places. I was 
thinking about joining that." 

No, there is a difference between the ski 
team and the ski club. One is a varsity sport 
and the other parties at ski lodges every 

#2 — "Oh, so you must ski at Mt. Tom." 

No, we train at Berkshire East. 
#3 — "So do you race against each other?" 

No, there are two events in a weekend: 
Giant Slalom and Slalom. In Giant Slalom, 
the gates are close and the skiing is technical; 
in Slalom, the gates are further apart and the 
skiing is high speed. Although ski racing is a 
team sport, the clock is your biggest oppo- 

#4 — "Do you ski fast?" 

YES ! That is what ski racing is all about. 
#5 — "The temperature on a ski mountain, 
many times, falls below zero. I'll bet you like 
this weather." 

Remember skiers are human. Being out 

in the bitter cold is not the part of skiing we 

So, exactly what is the ski team? UMass 
is in a league with eight other schools: Boston 
College, Plymouth State, Smith, St. Anslems, 
Dartmouth, Babson, UConn, Trinity, and 
Brown. UMass kicked off the season with a 
ski-carnival at our home slope, Berkshire 
East. We race ten men and ten women in each 
race. Slaloms are on Saturday, and Giant 
Slaloms are on Sunday. After the tenth race, 
we send our top five men and women to the 
regionals at Waterville Valley. There we com- 
pete against schools on the East Coast. 

Freshman Tom Schafer consecutively 
captured the gold throughout the season, lead- 
ing the men' s team to the Nationals. Other top 
scores for the men were made by senior John 
Soglia, and junior Terry Retelle. For women, 
seniors Beth Martin and Kim Lombardi, and 
sophomore Danielle Kukane were the top 
scorers for the season. 

Several people led us to victory through- 
out the season, but ultimately, it could not be 
done without Coach William McConnell. At 
76 years old, he still finds the time and energy 
to be out in the bitter cold, skiing and cheering 
on his team. Another asset was Coach Paul 
Putnam, our training coach. Without these 
two people's hard work and dedication, the 
team would not exist. 

As the snow stopped falling and the grass 
started to appear, our season came to an end. 
Many good times are left on the slopes for 
next year's men and women to add to, and 
many memories will carry on.

UMass basketball has grown from games 
in the Cage — often interrupted by squirrels 
scurrying across the court in front of virtually 
empty bleachers — to "Mullins Madness" — 
hundreds of screaming face-painted, sign- 
bearing fans. In the past four years, UMass 
has gone from thrilling NIT victories to har- 
rowing NCAA Tournament defeats. 

This year, UMass started its season with 
a foreshadowing tournament. A thrilling vic- 
tory over national champions UNC, through 
the efforts of all and capped off by Mike 
Williams's three pointers in regulation and 
overtime, was tarnished with concern over 
freshman Marcus Camby's potentially ca- 
reer-ending knee injury. Four games later, 
with a record of eight and one, UMass entered 
the Abdow's Hall of Fame Classic with a 
rejuvenated Marcus Camby to fight for the 
Championship. As in the past, UMass tri- 
umphed, and Mike Williams was named MVP, 
once again an interesting moment of fore- 

Calipari's young warriors made it to 14- 
2 overall and 6-0 in the Atlantic Ten Confer- 
ence, before returning home to continue their 
undefeated record at Mullins. The fifteenth 
victory came against Coach Jarvis's George 
Washington Colonials. After trailing GW for 
the entire game, sophmore Donta Bright found 
Camby in the lane for a dunk and a foul which 
brought down the house. Unfortunately, the 
excitement of the victory was crushed less 
than a week later in Cincinnatti. It began with 
the collapse of Mike Williams. Ironically, 
this occurred exactly six months after the 
death of Boston Celtics' captain Reggie Lewis. 
As it turned out, Williams was not the victim 
of heart problems, but precautionary mea- 
sures kept him out of three games. 

With the return of Williams, UMass de- 
feated URI in Providence, bringing their over- 
all record to 18-4, and undefeated in the 
Atlantic Ten Conference. Two days later, the 
Minutemen tackled Temple and once again 
squeaked by with a game-winning shot by 
guess who? Mike Williams ! And who jumped 
up in the now-famous confrontation when 
Temple Coach John Chaney lunged for Coach 
Calipari? Mr. Williams again. The irony of 


this victory, however, is not only the winning 
basket by Williams, but the overshadowing 
postgame incident which received more air 
time in more states than the Minutmen's 
victory over Temple. UMass raised its record 
to 23-5 at Temple. Once again, things un- 
folded in a strangely familiar order. With 
seconds left on the clock, Mike Williams 
pulled up behind the NBA three point cres- 
cent and banked the game winning shot for 
the first UMass at Temple win ever. There 
was nothing that could take away the thrill of 
this victory. 

The team ended its regular season at 24- 
6, defeating Duquesne at the Mullins Center 
on Senior Night. Craig Berry, the lone senior 
on the team, summed up the emotional year 
of wins and losses with a reverse double- 
pump jam. A walk-on from Cambridge, MA, 
Berry was pleased with his opportunity to 
contribute to the team over the past two 

Outstanding athletes were honored at an 
awards ceremony at the Atlantic Ten Confer- 
ence later that week. Award recipients in- 
cluded Mike Williams, named to All Confer- 
ence Third Team; Marcus Camby, named 
Freshman of the Year, Newcomer of the 
Year, and to All Conference Third Team; 
Lou Roe, named to All Conference First 
Team; and Derek Kellogg, named to the 
Academic All Conference Team. Coach John 
Calipari was named Atlantic Ten Coach of 
the Year. (After the Championship game, 
Mike Williams received his second MVP 
award of the year.) After defeating St. 
Joseph' s and Duquesne, UMass braced itself 
for its third meeting with Temple. Victorious 
yet again, the Minutemen plowed over 
Chaney' s Owls, gaining a number two seed 
in the mid-west for the NCAA Tournament, 
and bringing their record to 27-6, one of the 
best in the country.

Up Close 
and Personal 

They have come from all over the country to Amherst, 
Massachusetts, to play a game they have probably loved since 
they were young. They have made up one of the most successful 
UMass Basketball teams ever to play. They are the players of 
the Men's Basketball Team. The 1994 Index was granted an 
interview with these players who Refuse to Lose. 

[to Lou Roe]: What do you have to say about the 
differences between playing as a first year stu- 
dent with leaders like Anton Brown, Jim McCoy, 
WillHerndon. Harper Williams, and Tony Barbee 
versus now being in their shoes as a leader and 
playing with first year players such as Donta 
Bright, Marcus Camby, Edgar Padilla, and 
Carmello Traviesco? 

LR: Well, there's more at stake now then there 
was my first year. I didn't have to worry about 
being a leader. Your first year you just worry 
about keeping your own head above water, but as 
a leader, you worry about other players coming 

[to Derek Kellogg]: As a senior in high school, 
did you ever anticipate yourself being a co-cap- 
tain on a Division One, Top Ten Nationally ranked 
basketball team? 

DK: No, I did not. I just feel lucky that I have an 
opportunity to be a part of the team and a part of 
the program. 

[to Mike Williams]: How do you feel your game 
has evolved from your first year to now? 
M W: I think I got a lot better because I ' ve gotten 
a lot of strength from lifting weights. I can put the 
ball down low better and finish off more plays. I'd 
like to add a special thanks to my mom and dad, 
Michael, Mishawn, Ebony, and Richard Thomas. 
[to Carmello Traviesco]: How does it feel to win 
the Atlantic Ten Championship as a first-year 

CT: As a freshman, to win our league was great 
just because it was the first college championship 
I took part in. Since this is my first year, when we 
finally did it [three in a row] it was special - not 
just to win the championship, but to be part of

things, but I have a lot of hard work ahead of me. 
[to Dana Dingle]: What were your pre-game 
thoughts in Madison Square Garden, knowing 
that you were about to play against North Caro- 
lina in front of a hometown crowd? 
DD: I thought about how it was a big game, but 
I had confidence that we could win— catch them 
off guard because it was their first big game, too. 
It was more important to have a decent outing in 
front of my friends and family. As a child, you 
always dream of playing in the Garden. [Dana is 
from the Bronx, New York.] 
[to Craig Berry}: What was going through your 
mind as you prepared for your legendary senior

[to Edgar Padilla]: How would you like to play 
against your high school teammate, Travis Best 
( who now plays for Georgia Tech) ? 
EP: I would like to play against him. I think it 
would be a good experience for me — I never 
thought I was going to play against himin college. 
[to Ted Cottrell]: Where is the best place in the 
world to play basketball? 
TC: Muffins because I have more support here. 
When I get in [the game] it's better here because 
everybody can see that I can play instead of 
playing for some strangers.

Do you like to stand? Well, if you don't 
then don't come to the Mullins Center when 
the University of Massachusetts Minuteman 
Basketball team takes to the court. The coach 
of the Minutemen, John Calipari, often says 
that we are the classiest and best fans in the 
country and he means it. Over the past four 
years, our whole campus has become in- 
fected with Minutemania. 

What is Minutemania? It's a difficult 
concept to describe, more difficult than a 
thermodynamics theory, harder to explain 
than an accounting problem. However, if you 
go to the University and follow the basketball 
team, Minutemania gets to you. Minutemania 
is the feeling you get at the game. When the 
team is down by eight with two minutes to go 
and the team needs a boost, that is when it 
kicks in. Minutemania is the all out hysterical 
appreciation for our team, even when they are

The cause for Minutemania is simple, 
it's the team. The basketball team plays all 
out, all the time. They "Refuse to Lose," and 
as a result we refuse to give up on them. By all 
our efforts and theirs the team has prevailed. 
Minutemania contributes to the team as much 
as the team contributes to the school. 

The symptoms of Minutemania are 
unique to this University. The first symptom 
anyone who goes to the game can see is the 
extraordinary leg muscle strength. People 
with Minutemania do not sit down at all 
during the whole game. Another symptom is 
the clinical deafness that the fans experience 
for about two days after the game. Our fans 
cheer for the team with the earth-shaking 
volume of a space shuttle lifting off. The last 
symptom, unique to (continued on p. Ill) 

mania isn't 
just a dis- 

ease it s a 

way of liv- 
ing at the 
of Massa- 
chusetts. It 
is a growing 
that shows 
our pride in 

our team.

Step by step. 

The 1993-1994 University of Massa- 
chusetts women's basketball team took an- 
other step to national respectability by doing 
one particular thing that was a necessity. 
They improved. 

Coach Joanie O'Brien's Minutewomen 
went 14-4 overall, an improvement from the 
11-15 season before. Their Atlantic Ten 
Conference record was 7-9, an increase from 
the 6-8 record the year before. The outstand- 
ing athletes for UMass included Octavia 
Thomas, (16.5 ppg) and Melissa Gurile, (14.3 
ppg) who increased their scoring averages 
from the 1 992- 1 993 season. Emerging fresh- 
men starters Beth Kuzmeski and Crystal

Carroll were also notable faces. 

In order for UMass to improve, a strong 
non-conference schedule was needed. The 
Minutewomen took on such nationally ranked 
teams as Ohio State, Vanderbilt, Vermont, 
and defending NCAA champion Texas Tech. 
Indeed, the schedule was stocked with tons of 
national power. 

With the improvement came accomplish- 
ment. Shining moments during the season 
included Gurile' s near perfect 38 point game 
at Providence, the Minutewomen' s halftime 
lead against nationally ranked Texas Tech, 
and winning four out of five overtime games. 
Octavia Thomas made the all Atlantic-Ten 
First team, Gurile made the second team, 
Kuzmeski and Carroll made the All- A- 10 
freshman team. All of these individual ac- 
complishments came together toward the end 
of the season and enabled the Minutewomen 
to advance in the A- 10 Tournament. In the 
first round the team crushed St. Joseph's 76- 
63 and proceeded to the semifinals. 

Amidst the improvement, seniors took 
on leadership roles. Francie Hansen, Cherie 
Muza, Jessica Gould and starting point guard 
Maleeka Valentine all played their final sea- 
son in a Minutewoman uniform, and influ- 
enced the underclassmen in a positive way. 

There were others who contributed to 
the Minutewomen' s .500 season. Junior Cass 
Anderson and Sophomores Nicole Carter, 
Tricia Hopson and Kim Gregory answered 
the call when needed. 

Despite the slight increase in season 
records between the two teams, it was still a 
major improvement. Like anything else, the 
Minutewomen will achieve their long term 
goals in due time.

After 15 years in hibernation, ice hockey 
returned to the University of Massachusetts 
and its first season was bigger and better than 
ever before. The Minutemen went 20-9 in 
their return campaign, playing a mixture of 
Division I, II , and III teams. 

Coach Joe Mallen was excited about his 
predominantly freshmen team's first year 
success. "We've done absolutely over and 
above anything that I ever thought was pos- 

Goaltending, defense and offense were 
three impressive areas for the team. Highly 
recruited Brain Reagan joined the two return- 
ing netminders, producing a three-way battle 
for the top goalie job. David Kilduff was the 
power force for the Minutemen, posting a 14- 
4 record on the season, and winning the 
team's first victory against Villanova. Rich 
Moriarty played well in the final stretch of the 
season, including solid performances in 
UMass' only win against a Division I oppo- 
nent. "We showed a lot of promise in the 
goal," said Mallen. "All the men did a good 
job for us all. The goalie situation was a great 
situation and competitive situation." The team 
netted 176 goals in their 29 games. 

Excellent defensive athletes included 
Rich Alger and Armand Latulippe. Alger was 
the first player to commit to UMass and 
Latulippe scored the first goal for the team. 
Captain Jaynen Rissling missed the first five 
games of the season but still came through for

his team in the end, helping to lead the Min- 
utemen to a string of 20 victories. 

The Minuteman offense was potent all 
season. The nucleus of Rob Bonneau, Blair 
Wagar, Mike Evans, Blair Manning, Warren 
Norris, Dennis Wright, and Tom Perry will be 
counted on to build on their impressive first 
seasons to contribute to the team next year. 

If the future goes as well as the first 
season, Mallen hopes to be a mainstay at 
UMass. After less than a year as Coach, 
Mallen has indeed made his mark. "I would 
like to make a name for UMass hockey and to 
make my imprint on the program for a long 
time to come . . . This is going to be a special 
year when I look back, because it's the year 
we put UMass hockey back on the map."

The New Kid on the Block: 
Coach Mallen 

Coach Joseph W. Mallen came to the University April 13, 1993 to resurrect the hockey program after 15 years of 

rajcoach Mallen spent much of his coaching career as head coach at UMass-Boston. His coaching brought the team 
from a poor club to a recognized winning varsity team. In 1986. Coach Mallen moved into the assistant coaching 
position at Boston College. 

His sevenjvear stay with Boston College gave Coach Mal len the experience and the tastes of victory to make him 
e of the mos| respected coaches in the Hockey-East. We hope that Coach Mallen can perform his magic and turn 
HocKtef into a team to be feared by all. 

Relations: You have to be excited 
ihout the opportunity to build a program 
n scratch and take it right into one of the 
inter leagues in the country next season.

MR: UMass PresiWtit Micha^9k^SjLid 
Athletic Director Bob Marcum havesmted 
that one of the athletic Department's five 
major goals will be to win a national champi- 
onship in hockey. Does that put additional 
pressure on you? 

JM: No, I don't think so. But I constantly try 
to remind my self to have patience. My thought 
is that the process is going to be gradual, step- 
by-step. Once we can be in the top four teams 
in Hockey East, we can make a run at the 
national championship. If we can be a top 
team in Hockey East, that means an NCAA 
bid and that is a stepping stone we need to 

MR: Hockey hasn 't been played here since 
1979. Have you had any contact with any of 
the old players and supporters? 

JM: One of my goals is to re-unite the old 
program with the new, to build those ties and 
let the people who were associated with the 
program know that they are welcome. We 
need to bring back some of that tradition. 
There were a lot of people who played here 
and have a lot of pride in UMass, but who may 
have acquired a bitter taste. We want those 
people back. We want 
them to know that 
UMass hockey is 
back, better than ever, 
and we want them to 
be part of it. 
MR: John Calipari 
came in here and in- 
herited, not a new pro- 
gram, but a program 
that needed a lot of 
work. Have you talked 
to him about some of 
the tilings he did to 
build the basketball 
team to national 

sion I athletics; what is needed for study hall, 
pre-season conditioning, wide-ranging re- 
cruiting, and a high level of discipline within 
the team. John's done a great job with those 
things, as well as marketing the program 
within the campus and community. Of course, 
you can do all the marketing you want, but the 
bottom line is you have to win. He's worked 
his tail off to do that. 
The attendance, the 
recruiting, the spirit 
within the univer- 
sity; it's great. 
MR: Can hockey 
achieve that level of 
success here? 
JM: On a local and 
regional level we can 
have that kind of suc- 
cess. But basketball 
is a completely dif- 
ferent world because 
of national televi- 
sion. Within the 
hockey world, I think 
we will make an im- 
pact, but basketball

This year's Women's Swimming Team 
was a combination of teamwork, individual 
talent, and accomplishments, which all led to 
a season much more successful than the team' s 
final 4-6 record. 

Throughout the season, the team focused 
on championships during which they com- 
peted against ten to fifteen schools. At the 
New England Championships at Springfield 
College in mid-February, the biggest compe- 
tition of the season, the Minutewomen swam 
to third place. In the Eastern Collegiate Ath- 
letic Conference, the team came in fifth place. 
This was a great accomplishment in compari- 
son to coming in tenth and eleventh in past 
recent years. 

Allison White, a senior HRTA major 
who' s been on the team four years, had one of 
her best seasons ever. A veteran diver of 
thirteen years, White also adds gymnastic 
ability to her style. Last year she won New 
England Diver of the Year and this season 
successfully defended her title, winning the 
Atlantic Ten Women's Diving competition. 

"When you dive, you want to rip," White 
explained. "A rip is entering the water as 
tightly as possible, vertically, so that you go 
in smoothly and don't make a splash."

Talent and skill like White's were main- 
tained with constant practice. "We practice 
six days a week and have double sessions 
Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays," said 
Kate Riddell, a senior sports management 
major who's been swimming since she was 
eight. Morning practices last an hour and a 
half, and evening practices last two hours 
each. During practices, members practice their 
individual events like diving or distance swim- 
ming, and weight train, run, and perform 
calisthenics as well. 

Tri-captain Kim Broad, a senior from 
Indiana recruited by UMass said that good 
coaching has a lot to do with a successful 
season. This year, Dorsey Tierney joined the

own insight to the team as an NCAA breast-

ming including the butterfly, backstroke, and 
breaststroke, currently holds the UMass 
record for the mile, which she set as a fresh- 

"We started out rough with a lot of 
untried talent, and the dual meets were tough," 
said Broad. "We lost to Northwestern, Provi- 
dence, and Boston College, but as the season 
progressed we polished our act." 

"This showed," said Broad, "when we 
played UConn, one of the best teams in the 
country, at home. During the first half we 
killed them and set a series of lifetime and 
season bests. We really caught them off 

By the time of the ECACs, the team 
came back to beat among other teams, every 
one of those three teams (Northwestern, Bos- 
ton, and Providence), ultimately placing fifth. 
Freshman recruiting this year was more suc- 
cessful than ever, resulting in ten new 
Minutewomen on the team. For a team com- 
peting in the Atlantic Ten Tournament, this 
year's Women's Swimming was finally able 
to recruit with force. As a result, the team has 
an even stronger look ahead.

The 1 993- 1 994 season for the University 
of Massachusetts men's swimming team was 
nothing short of an emotional roller coaster 
ride. The Minutemen got off to a fast start 
winning their first 10 meets prior to a show- 
down with longtime rival, the University of 
Connecticut. In what Coach Russ Yarworth 
called "a good example of team work," the 
Minutemen defeated UConn by a score of 
130-1 12 in a come-from-behind effort. 

The presence of four outstanding 
seniors led UMass to victory in several com- 
petitions. Sean Clark placed first in the 50- 
yard freestyle, Tim Nubar won the 100-yard 
fly and the 200-yard fly, Dan Buzinski won 
the 500-yard freestyle, and Steve Jungbluth 


captured first place in the 1 000-yard freestyle. 
"Seniors are always important to the perfor- 
mance of a team because of their experience," 
Yarworth said. 

The victory put the final touches on a 
perfect season for the Minutemen. UMass 
finished with a 12-0 record, their best win 
total since the 1989-1990 season when they 
were 13-0. "It was a surprise," Yarworth 
said. "We came up with some great perfor-

Tim Nubar capped off his career at the 
New England Championships by being named 
the recipient of the Hugh MacCurdy Award 
for compiling the most points over his four

The Minutemen had a disappointing con-

Championships, scoring 260.5 points and 
ranking in fifth place. "A highlight was tojust 
see the team try 100 percent; even though

said Coach Yarworth. 

Despite the disappointments, there were 
several bright spots for the Minutemen. Greg 
Menton won two events at the ECAC's, the 
50 yard freestyle and the 100-yard freestyle. 
Menton posted times of :21.00 and :45.61 
respectively. Rob Coletti swam to personal 
bests in three events. He posted times of 
:21.63 in the 50-yard freestyle, :51.98 in the 
100-yard butterfly, and 1:56.26 in the 200-

yard butterfly. Jeff Shearstone also achieved 
his personal by scoring a 2:07.48 in the 200- 
yard breaststroke. That score placed 
Shearstone in ninth place. "He definitely 
lived up to his potential" said Yarworth. 

Yarworth praised the men for their de- 
termination and skill throughout the season. 
"The entire team is an incredible bunch of 
athletes. The camaraderie between the swim- 
mers has definitely enhanced their perfor- 
mances, both individually and as a team."

have proven that they have what it takes to be

personal victory and he ( continued on p. 123)

Minuteman to win gold at these competi- 
tions. That score also makes him the top rings 
gymnast in the ECAC. He also made the 
finals for the vault and for the floor exercise 
in which he placed sixth. 

The Men's Gymnastic Team had a fa- 
vorable season and a series of victories to add 
to their already outstanding record. Ten of 
the 30 team scores were personal bests. Fresh- 
man Ruslan Shupac captured a 9.55 on the 
floor exercise and a 9.20 on the parallel bars. 
Chris Funk scored a 9.65 on the still rings and 
Andy Fulmer received an 8.90 on the high 
bar. Freshman Gabe Colombus accomplished 
his personal best on the pommel horse by 
scoring an 8.45. All in all the team showed 
great strength and immense concentration in 
the shadow of defeat. 

Outstanding pommel horse athletes in- 
clude freshmen Kiat Olber and Lorenzo 
Macaluso and senior Jay Santos. According 
to Coach Roy Johnson, Olber' s performance 

was a "key routine for the team." Johnson 
also stated that Macaluso and Santos were 
"two of the best pommel horse competitors 
in the league." Macaluso lived up to this 
praise by placing fifth on the pommel horse 
at the ECACs on March 12. 

The Minutemen had an exceptional sea- 
son resulting in many national and state hon- 
ors. Co-captain Braud was an NCAA quali- 
fier in the floor exercise, placing 16th in the 
event. He was also the 1993 EIGL floor 
exercise champion and 1993 New England 
floor exercise and vault champion. Gabe 
Columbus contributed to the team by placing 
second on the floor exercise with a 9.45 and 
by propelling to fourth in the all-around 
competition with a 54.20. The gymnasts' 
skill and determination led UMass to second 
place honors with 269.35 points and ranking 
them 17th in the nation. 

Coach Johnson said, "The team has been 
competing very well and I hope they will 
start to peak so that we can reach the 270

point mark." This score could earn UMass a 
first at the EIGL championships. 

Coach Johnson pointed out the number 
of gymnasts who have been performing well 
this season. Among them were Peter 
Degenhardt who is "really good on floor 
exercises and parallel bars," and Ruslan 
Shupac who is ninth in the nation on the still 
rings with a 9.63 and 16th in the nation in 
vault with a 9.32 average. 

Despite the departure of top seniors Braud 
and Santos, Johnson says that the team has 
"enough strength, determination, and im- 
mense concentration to lead us to victory 
again and again."

again and 

The UMass women's gymnastics team 

had an extremely successful season in 1993- 

1994, resulting in a series of personal and 

team victories. First, at Senior Night, the 

team met their arch rivals, The University of 

New Hampshire Wildcats. The Minutemen 

broke their all-time total point record with a 

score of 189.835. Although the Wildcats 

edged out UMass with a score of 190.625, 

Minutewoman Coach David Kuzara was 

pleased with the team's overall performance. 

"We broke the school's record, and in a year 

when the scores aren't supposed to be very 

high," he said, "that's pretty impressive."

The team's two seniors, Margaret 
Furtado and Angela Jent, were recognized as 
contributing immensely to the team for four 
years. Kuzara stressed the importance of a 
young team having two qualified and tal- 
ented seniors as role models for the rest of the 
gymnasts. "Margaret and Angela have shown 
continuous grace, concentration, and skill 
throughout their gymnastic career at UMass. 
It shows the rest of the team the components 
of a great athlete." Furtado and Jent have 
shown their abilities in several aspects. 
Furtado pulled a 37.425 overall score and 
wound up third in the all-around competition. 
Jent placed second on the bars with a 9.35. 

Other notable athletes include Lianne 
Liang and Tara Swartz. The two freshmen 
captured combined scores of 37.95 and 37.725 
in the all-around competitions. Shaheda Keels 
was the top gymnast on the team leading with 
a 9.825. Kuzara said that Keels is by far "one 
of the most skilled and impressive athletes" 
he has encountered. "She is amazing to 
watch," says Assistant Coach Rene Lyst. 

Kuzara said that the best thing about the 
women' s gymnastics team is their spirit. "We 
are a team with attitude, and that is dangerous 
to our opponents." The gymnasts are so dedi- 
cated that even injuries do not stop them from 
performing. In February, Keels, still caring 
for an injury, won the bars at 9.5. Kuzara held 
her back from the vault due to her injury but 
she still succeeded in producing a win for her 
team. Kuzara also stated that "dedication is 
the mark of a good team. Our women never 
give up. That is more important than the 
actual outcome of the competition."

UMass Water Polo Places Sixth at NCAA Championships 

The UMass water polo team finished the 
1993 season with a 21-6 overall record as 
they made their first ever trip to the NCAA 
Championships in Long Beach, CA. Com- 
peting at the historic Belmont Plaza swim- 
ming pool, the UMass poloers made some 
history of their own by becoming the first 
Eastern team to ever beat a west coast team in 
the NCAA Championship history. 

The seventh seeded Minutemen met 
three-time defending national champion Cal- 
Berkeley in the first round of competition. 
The Golden Bears aggressive style of play 
proved to be too much for UMass as the 
Minutemen were defeated 17-4. 

The second round game was the history 
maker . . . UMass vs. UC San Diego. The 15- 
1 3 win for the Minutemen began a new chap- 
ter in UMass water polo history. This match- 
up featured tremendous two meter defense of 

Tasan Engin, the impressive goal scoring (5) 
of Luis Limardo, and an immense 1 3 save 
effort by Alex Mujica. 

UMass fell to fifth-ranked Pacific 16-5 
in the fifth place match-up. The Minutemen 
left Belmont Plaza with their heads held high, 
a 6th place NCAA finish, and the smiles that 
come with success at the end of a long season. 

Tasan Engin was the only Eastern player 
to be named to the NCAA All-Tournament 
team when he was named to the second team.

The goal of every inter-collegiate eques- 
trian team is to make it to the Nationals. This 
year, our riders' lengthy practices, and con- 
sistent performances at the horse shows paid 
off. The UMass Equestrians qualified, as a 
team, for the National Competition held in 
Texas. Every rider worked hard for their own 
individual goals, but also came together as a 
team to help coach and support each other 
throughout the season. 

With twenty-seven talented riders, and 
second-year coach Wendy Cicciu, every- 
thing fell into place for the team. At the 
winter break, UMass was tied with their rival 
team, Mt. Holyoke, and Smith was close 
behind. At the start of spring break, UMass 
took the lead and held it, earning their posi- 
tion as Regional Champions and qualifica- 
tion to compete at the National Competition. 

This year, members qualified as a team 
and individually. Along with a great coach, 
and the riders' constant support of one an- 

other, this year's success can be be attributed 
to the fact that the team worked long and hard 
throughout the entire year. They practiced in 
five degree weather this winter and often 
ended up staying at the Hadley Farm until ten 
at night. Weekends were filled with compe- 
titions throughout Western Massachusetts. 
Riders took lessons during the weekdays and 
participated in various clinics at our farm and 
other neighboring stables. 

The UMass Equestrian Team has had 
some wonderful seasons in the past, but this 
year, with a great coach, incredibly talented 
riders, consistent performances, and constant 
practicing, the team reaped its rewards. 

Congratulations to the UMass Eques- 
trian Team for a winning season!

In the dim half-light of dawn, the sleek 
shapes of the boats are barely visible. The 
rowers warm up in a small circle, stretching 
out their legs and backs before they carry their 
shell down to the river. As they climb into the 
boat and shove off from the dock, it is clear 
that all nine athletes are eager for practice to 

This eagerness is evidence of the deter- 
mination that it takes to be a successful crew. 
Every year, the Crew recruits over 100 stu- 
dents as prospective members of the team, 
but due to the rigorous training and unusual 
hours, with practices every morning at 5 a.m., 
less than half of those recruits choose to 
continue rowing. By the time winter training 
begins in late November, only 50 of the 
Novices remain. The fierce competition for 
seating in boats and the tough racing schedule 
during the spring season trims the ranks of the 
Crew even further, until only the hard-core 
rowers and coxswains remain. 

This year the UMass Crew had much to 
be excited about. In May of 1993, the Crew 
was named National Champion for NCAA 
Division II. In the wake of this great achieve- 

ment, the University announced that it would 
be awarding varsity status to the women's 
crew starting in the 1994-95 season. 

The Varsity Women quickly proved that 
the University had chosen wisely by winning 
four of the five races they competed in prior 
to the New England Championships in May, 
where they won the bronze in the Varsity 
Women's Openweight Eights event. Unfor- 
tunately, the Novice Women were not as 
successful, losing by small margins in all five 
of their races. However, they surprised every- 
body at New Englands by placing third, and 
qualified for the Champion International Col- 
legiate Regatta, as did the Varsity Women, 
the Varsity Lightweight Men, the Novice 
Heavyweight Men, and the Novice Light- 
weight Men. 

The Varsity Men also had a trying sea- 
son. Although they started the season with a 
Heavyweight eight, a Lightweight eight, and 
a Junior Varsity eight, the Varsity Men were 
plagued with a high (continued on p. 131)

(continued from p. 130) dropout rate in the 
spring, and by New England Championships 
they had only the Lightweight eight and a 
Heavyweight four with coxswain. The Var- 
sity Lightweights finished fifth at New 
Englands; the Varsity Heavyweights won the 
silver medal in their race, and then competed 
at the Dad Vail Regatta in Philadelphia the 
following week, where they placed sixth. 

The Novice Men showed their skill in 
their first race, where the Heavyweights com- 
peted against Harvard's Novice Heavy- 
weights, who are historically one of the best 
novice crews in the nation. Although they 
were beaten by Harvard's "A" boat, UMass 
defeated Harvard's "B" boat and started off 
their season with a bang. The Novice Heavy- 
weights' fourth place finish at New Englands 
proved their strength and determination. Like- 
wise, the Novice Lightweights had an excep- 
tional season, winning four of their five races 
and placing fifth at the New England Cham- 

The Champion International Collegiate 
Regatta was held this year in Occoquan, 
Virginia, on May 15 — right in the middle of 
finals week. Members of the Crew had to 
reschedule their final exams in order to travel 
to Occoquan and compete. The Varsity 
Women came in tenth in the nation, and the 
Novice Women were twelfth. Since the 
women are losing only one rower to gradua- 
tion, and two to foreign exchange, next year' s 
squad should be even more successful. The 
added bonus of University funding for coach- 
ing staff, equipment, and scholarships will 
undoubtedly contribute to the women's prom- 
ising future. 

The Varsity Lightweight Men placed 
ninth in their race; the Novice Heavyweights 
and Lightweights were ranked fifth and sec- 
ond, respectively. With only six members of 
the squad graduating, both the Lightwieghts 
and the Heavyweights look to have a strong 
season next year.

For the second year in a row, Women's 
Track and Field polished off an undefeated 
dual meet season. The team won eleven and 
lost none. At the New England Champion- 
ships on May 1 4- 1 5 , which were held at Holy 
Cross College in Worcester, the team placed 
eighth overall. Summing up the season's suc- 
cess, Coach Julie LaFreniere said, "The team 
is definitely one of the top four or five in New 

One of the single greatest wins of this 
year occurred against Boston College, whose 
members are yearly contenders for top awards 
and seasons. Last year the team just squeaked 
by BC, but this year, as Coach LaFreniere put 
it, "Looking at the competition, I didn't think 
we'd do that well, but we easily won against 
Boston College." 

The skill and endurance of the UMass 
team led to many spectacular performances, 
and wins in individual events always varied. 
"One of the main reasons we're undefeated is 
that we don't try to specialize in distance, or 
with sprinters, or by simply working our 
throwers." However, schools like Boston Col- 
lege typically focused on working on a few 
star players and stressed selected events to 
their players. LaFreniere continued to de- 
velop her team all around, from throwing to 
field events. As a result, the team has made 
modest but real improvements each season. 

"Boston College used to always beat us, 
but I think they got a taste of our strength. I'm 
very proud of the team," said Coach 

At the New England Championships, 
Heather Brown came in second overall in 
javelin, Anya Forrest scored third in the one- 
hundred meter hurdles, and Janey Meeks 
scored fourth in the triple jump. In the 4x800 
relay, UMass came in second place. 

Janey Meeks and Heather Brown also 
went on this year to represent the

ways beat 
us, but I 
think they

proud of the 

Minutewomen at the Eastern Collegiate Ath- 
letic Conference (EC AC ) Championships on 
May 2 1 -22. The EC AC Championships were 
held in Fairfax, Virginia. Brown threw jav- 
elin and Meeks competed in the triple jump. 
Both team members came back from the 
ECAC's with experience that will make the 
team even stronger next year. 

This year's team was also represented 
by a lot of new blood. "We had a very young 
team," explained LaFreniere. "I was ex- 
tremely happy with Track and Field this year, 
and next year will be even better." 

And with strong performances from 
underclassmen like Brown, combined with 
the guidance and experience of upperclass- 
men like Meeks, Women's Track and Field 
will be a team on the rise in next year's 
Atlantic Ten Conference and in the New 
England region.

Right Track 

Each year, as the snow starts melting and 
spring fever starts setting in, the track and 
field team begins their season. Superior was 
the only word to describe the team and their 
performance this season. 

This season the men's track and field 
team scored 1 7 points, placing them 8th among 
32 teams at the New England Championships 
in February. Coach Ken O'Brien estimated 
the team's outcome before the champion- 
ships and was pleased with their performance. 
"You'd have to consider the whole event a 
success. When you've been working real 
hard for eight to ten weeks such a finish is a 
natural outcome." 

In the 4 x 800 meter relay, victories 
abounded. Jason Brewer ( 1 :58.5), Steve Paris 
( 1 :58.6), Brian King ( 1 :56.5), and Rick Copley 
(1:56.5 ) finished the race in 7:50.54, qualify-

ing the ensemble for the IC4A (Intercolle- 
giate Amateur Athletic Association of 
America) Championships. Also qualifying 
was the distance group of King, Rob Pedowitz, 
Chris Povolny, and Copely, whose time of 
10:17.05 was ranked sixth best for the day. 
The 4 x 400 relay was completed in the best 
time of the year by nearly two seconds 

Other New England Championship vic- 
tories included four athletes from different 
aspects of track and field. Paul Doyle's 3,258 
pentathlon points put him in fourth place. 
Junior Tom Galligani came in 4th in the triple 
jump with a score of 45 '5. 75". Mark Lefebvre 
took fifth in the shot-put with a 497.25". 
Finally, Rob Tauro's 7.92 in the 55 meter 
hurdles placed him in the fifth position. 
O'Brien said "the majority of the athletes had 
their best performances of the year." 

In an April 1 6 tri-meet at Llewelyn Derby 
track, UMass came (continued on p. 135)

( continued from p. 134) up with a total of 76 
points. Led by sophomores Lefebrve and 
Mike Masone the team peaked with four out 
of 8 top finishes. Lefebrve, who was the 
team's leading scorer, clinched first place in 
shot-put and discus, with distances of 48' and 
1 347" respectively. Galligani joined Masone 
in the javelin with a top effort of 45'2" in the 
triple jump. Lionel Benjamin won 100 meter 
competition with the time of 11.3 seconds. 
Juniors Rick Copley and Ethan Nedeau also 
scored big. Copley beat his personal best by 
over 10 seconds, winning the steeplechase 
with a time of 9:26. Nedeau placed in the top 
three in both the 800 and the 1500 meter 

UMass won the top three places in dis- 
cus competition. In the 4 x 100 meter race, 
UMass got the second place time with 44.6, 
three-one hundreds of a second behind the 
winning time. Coach O' Brien was extremely 
pleased with the balance his team showed. 

Next year, O'Brien hopes the success of 
the team will continue. He said "the success 
[this season] can be attributed largely to team 
cooperation and immense dedication on the 
part of everyone. I couldn't ask for a better 
season in that regard next year."

A Force to Be 
Reckoned With 

The Women's Lacrosse team's 1993- 
1994 season was filled with accomplish- 
ments. First, and most important, was the 
reinstatement of the team, which had been 
inactive in official competition for the past 
four years. Women's Lacrosse was cut from 
the athletic budget in 1 990, but was funded 
again in 1994 following legal battles. 

The team showed their appreciation with 
respectable teamwork and effort on the field. 
Their strength was consistent on both of- 
fense and defense. Many opposing teams 
were intimidated by the agility of the 
Minutewomen, and surely will not look for- 
ward to meeting this fast growing team in 
future matches. 

Unfortunately, when it came down to 
the end of their bouts with more skilled and 
experienced teams, the Minutewomen came 
up a little short, finishing the year with a 3-1 1 

The Women's Lacrosse team showed 
great advancement throughout the season. 
"The team improved in both spirit and pride," 
said Coach Francesca Den Hartog, who was 
new to the team this season. She continued, 
saying that the leadership and guidance of 
the senior co-captains Diane Clemente and 
Rachael Splaine was an integral part of the 

team's powerful rebirth. 

This power was especially evident in the 
performance of freshman goal tender, Patricia 
DiBenedetto. As the season progressed, so 
did DiBenedetto, becoming one of the top 
goalies in the country. 

At the end of the year, Clemente was 
named to the IWLCA Ail-American North 
Regional Second Team, after an impressive 
season of fourteen game starts, five points, 
and five assists. 

At the conclusion of their first active 
season since 1990, the team was commended 
for their dedication and hard work. Governor 
Weld, at the Annual UMass Day at the State 
House, made special note of the Women's 
Lacrosse team and their efforts. Weld and 
other state officials went on to discuss the 
importance of the Women's Athletic Pro- 
gram and praised all womens' athletic teams. 

Women's Lacrosse members are confi- 
dent that next year's team will further im- 
prove. With a team composed primarily of 
freshmen and a strong recruiting class, ability 
will improve, and accomplishments are sure 
to grow. This year's performance was a fine 
preview of things to come.

The Men' s Lacrosse team had a success- 
ful season in 1994, just missing out on the 
NCAA with an overall 9-5 record. 

The Gorillas were led in scoring by jun- 
ior Mike Valente, who totaled 45 points for 
the season and also made the team high of 33 
assists. His hundredth career point, scored in 
the final game against Army on May 7, 
rounded out a spectacular season for Valente, 
with a year left for him to further showcase 
his talents. 

Close behind was senior Wes Depp, who 
scored 44 points this season and finished a 
stellar career with 111 points. The future 
looks bright with the arrival of freshman 
Brendan Glass, who scored an impressive 33 
goals in his first season. A former high school 
AU-American, Glass became the Gorilla's 
second leading scorer. Glass and defenseman 

Dave Murphy were both rewarded for their 
playing abilities by being named to the All- 
Tournament Team. 

The Gorillas finished second in the pres- 
tigious 3rd Annual Fleet Invitational at Brown 
University in Providence after being defeated 
by the Syracuse Orangemen, 1 6-9 in the final 
game the previuos weekend. They started off 
well on Friday, with Depp scoring two goals 
for a total of 60 career points. Friday saw the 
Gorillas coming in at number 13, but they 
suffered a downfall to Syracuse on Saturday. 
It was the fifth time this year that a UMass 
team has played against a defending national 

The team may have suffered losses that 
weekend, but it is important to remember that 
the team was at a disadvantage from the 
beginning of the season. The team had only 

Below: Even Yale's three-on-one technique

had five days use of their field before the 
tournament, making it difficult to get much 
game practice time in. Nevertheless, they 
made up for their lack of practice by giving 
100 percent in every game. 

Unfortunately, the fine offensive skills 
of Glass, Depp, and Valente weren't enough 
for the season to continue post-season. Ten is 
the minimum needed to win in order to have 
a shot at NCAA. With a 9-win credit to their 
season, however, and the promise of Glass 
continuing his contributions to the team, the 
Gorillas are expected to return with a high- 
winning streak next year.

Chris Martens steps to the plate and 
practices her batting stance before the pitch 
heads her way. She sees the pitcher ahead of 
her and focuses her concentration on the 
softball. The field is quiet for a minute until 
the crack of the bat resounds throughout 
Totman Field. The excitement has begun. 
Cardenas hits a double and charges to third 
base as the other team scrambles to catch the 
ball. After Sam Cardenas hits a single, Mar- 
tens dashes home and scores the third run in 
a row for the Minutewomen. 

Freshmen Chris Martens, the softball 
team' s top hitter, is praised by her teammates. 
Martens has proven to be a great assets to the 
team. Her batting average is .403 and her 
personal record includes 31 hits and 18 RBFs. 
Coach Elaine Sortino says that Martens is an 
extremely dedicated player who "gives 110 
percent of herself at each game." For Martens 
the 1994 season was a time for personal 
victories. During the Connecticut game, Mar- 
tens hit a rare triple to right field and had 
team's best batting average at .387. She was 
named Atlantic- 10 player of the week in 
April. In the CCSU contests, she ranked fourth 
in the conference in hitting. Her 21 RBI are 
also the most for a Minutewoman. 

The team anchor is junior pitcher, Kelly 
Daut, who pitched nine wins. Daut also had 
one of the best ERA's on the team, lowering 
it to 1.58 midway through the season. Her 
strikeout-to-walk ratio was 46-12, after she 
struck out 7 and walked none. "Daut is the 
type of athlete who sets goals for herself and 
isn't satisfied with her performance until she 
has fulfilled those goals," says Sortino. 

Sophomore Dana Colla is another out- 
standing player. In 15 innings she has al- 
lowed just two earned runs, giving her an 
extraordinary 0.93 ERA. Colla has gone the 
distance this season to (continued on p. 141 )

(continued from p. 140) ensure success for 
her team. Colla has added depth to the team 
with her immense skill. 

The Minutewomen definitely have a 
pitching advantage. The team ERA stands at 
2.36, as UMass scored more unearned runs 
(35) than earned (30). Daut is largely respon- 
sible for this statistic but freshmen Dani 
Ortega also did her part. "Ortega's the most 
advanced we've had as a freshmen," Sortino 
said. "No matter how many times she is 
defeated she always bounces back to lead us 

Below: Junior ace pitcher Kelly Daut gives 
the ball her special throw.

to victory." Ortega was also named Atlantic- 
10 Player in April. 

The team's offensive is comprised of all 
freshmen. Martens, Cardenas, Michelle 
Methit, and Jodi Sorenson continued to lead 
the Minutewomen to several consecutive wins 
and helped to raise the team' s winning streak. 
Sweeping victories became commonplace 
for the Minutewomen and brought the final 
record to 3 1 and 19. Ranked 7th in the North- 
east Region, the team closed out the season 
with a 7 game winning streak and a .27 1 team 
batting average.

The UMass baseball team started off the 
season with a no- win record in the first series 
of games in Florida, but bounced back after 
returning to the North, making for an overall 
31-17 season and a place in the Top 15, and 
becoming the second best season in UMass 

Each Spring Break, the team begins their 
season with a trip to Florida to play eight 
games. The reason for this is that most win- 
ning college baseball teams in the East are 
from the South. UMass, unfortunately, didn't 
fare well last Spring Break, losing all eight 

This bleak start didn't last too long, how- 
ever. The Minutemen began their winning 
streak with three games against the Temple 
Owls in Philadelphia. They started with a 10- 
6 victory on Saturday and continued with two 
more games on Sunday. In the first of these, 
UMass shined in a 19-3 win. Pitcher Peter 

Ferrari gave an outstanding performance, al- 
lowing Temple only five hits. In the Series 
Finale, Temple was beating UMass 9-3 until 
the seventh inning, when Minuteman Greg 
LaRocca hit 2 back-to-back homeruns. The 
game ended in a close 15-14 win, extending 
UMass' winning streak to 10 games. 

The team' s winning streak was stretched 
to 11 on April 19, with an unexpected 9-5 
victory over Central Connecticut State Uni- 
versity. This is the longest in Coach Mike 
Stone's career at UMass. Overall, Stone had 
a very successful year, having been named 
Atlantic- 10 Coach of the Year. 

The Minutemen finished the year with a 
31-17 season, their best ever, with the excep- 
tion of 1988, when they finished with 36 
wins. Senior Justin Howard finished with the 
all-time hit record of 193, up from a former 
record of 188. Although no players were

and junior co-captain Greg LaRocca were 
both named to the Second Team. 

Senior pitcher Pete Ferrari certainly had 
the best year of his career at UMass during 
the 1994 season. Ferrari came into the season 
withaO-1 careerrecord anda5.05 ERA. This 
season, he compiled a 6-3 record with a 
minuscule 1.80 ERA. He only gave up one 
homerun, the lowest of all the starters on the 
team. Ferrari was also second on the team in 
strikeouts with 48, three behind team leader

Staring out his second story window over- 
looking the parking lot, he watches the large 
white flakes blanket various cars in a soft white 
film. He liked to watch the path of the large 
flakes as they made their way down to the sea of 
white. Then the wind would pick up and the 
snow began to defy gravity, he would let out a 
whimper and furrow his brow. In the distance 
he could hear the sound of metal scraping against 
pavement as the plows tried to keep the snow 
from staying where it had originally landed . The 
town was fighting to make tomorrow another 
efficient working day. But he hoped it would 

Just think, if enough snow fell, that home- 
work that was due in the morning, would not 
need to be done. Just think, if enough powder 
came down from the sky, there would be a day 
in the middle of the week free of school. Just 
think, if the hills in the parks were covered with 
snow sledding will replace English, History, 
and Science. Vague delusions of the blizzard of 
'78 dance in his head for a drawn out moment. 
He continues to stare in to the snow polluted sky 
until the hour gets too late for any reasonable 
coherence in school the next day. That is if it is 
held, which is not where he has put his money. 
He finally lies down in the bed his parents 
thought he'd been in for the last few hours. Soon 
after, he drifted off to the quiet sound of snow 
clinging to his window. 

Exiting a peaceful dream of a world with- 
_o_ut school, his eyelids open with a start as the 
sounds of the radio float into his room from the 

kitchen. His father's busy noises are mixed with 
the monotone listing of school closings. He sits 
up more quickly than he ever would for a day in 
the classroom. When he enters the kitchen, his 
father turns off the sink and they stand their 
waiting as the "A" listing of towns are finished 
off. Andover, Arlington, Attleboro, then the "B's" 
begin. If his school is going to be canceled it's 
going to be in this set. All the announcer has to 
do is say the magic word. 

In those days it was common to have the 
smooth radio voice utter the magic word. As 
long as there was some snow. Back then it was 
not uncommon to have a full day canceled, and 
it was uncommon to have a half day canceled. 
Now years later and a school system beyond the 
opposite is true. The storms this year have cut 
more days in half than the last three winters 
combined. Every couple of days a storm front 
invades the area and every snowy morning our 
weary ears are glued to 99.3 FM hoping not to 
have to get dressed; hoping we can just hop right 
back into bed. 

Snowy days where the paths are brown 
pulp, icy days with the Arctic wind on the path 
between the Library and South College, and the 
lack of stable footing around campus have made 
UMass a miserable place this season. Warm 
days were a mixed blessing, knowing the im- 
pending freeze would be back. It seems that it 
would be easier to travel from the FAC to the 
Student Union on a good pair of skates. If only 
this weather arrived years earlier, or we were 
years younger, the days would be filled with 

sledding instead of trudging between classes. 

For some classes, the weather was mor 
blessing than a curse, such as Alpine Skiing at 1 
Tom, which is the place to be when the flal 
begin to fall. Large amounts of UMass stude: 
took to the slopes on weekends. Those up fo 
quick thrill went to Berkshire East and Mt. Tc 
while others, with some extra dough and so: 
time to kill, went elsewhere in New England. 1 
mountains would be doing even better studi 
business if school wasn't in session. 

When the first snow of the year falls, 
hope for school cancellations and enjoy the wh 
makeover the landscape has received, even giv 
the large amount of crutches checked out of hea 
services for those who couldn't keep themseh 
from falling on the ice. But by the 30th layer 
snow on ice, and the last barrel of rock salt i 
pended it became more than a little apparent tl 
we all were going to appreciate spring a bit m( 
this year. Especially since snow does not meai 
day of vacation anymore.

Mud and 

ne may recall, with a groan or 
a shudder, the days when bull- 
dozers invaded the UMass 
campus. Though it feels as 
iugh they've been here forever, it wasn't 
ig ago that those gigantic, metal blobs 
ne screaming onto campus bringing with 
:m a constant cloud of dirt and smog, 
tile, ever so slowly, they try to finish up 
• "improvements" on campus, students 
1 finding a new adventurous quality on 
npus that adds a very annoying quality to 
' UMass student life. 
The "UMass construction theme park" 
)vides a dangerous and not-so-amusing 
?erience for everyone on campus. The 
bill" usually begins in an attempt to get 

out of your nine o'clock class. Groggy and 
irritable, you stumble out of bed, giving your- 
self just enough time to get from point A to 
point B. But as you roll out on campus you 
meet the steely smile of a steamroller coming 
at you. Jerking quickly out of sleep, you 
dodge it just in time and swerve into a heavy 
shower of small (but deadly) pebbles from a 
bulldozer nearby. As you hunch over, gag- 
ging from the fumes of the churning ma- 
chines and trying to get dirt out of your 
contacts, you swagger into steaming fresh 
pavement that encompasses your new shoes 
in a burning, sticky mass. Becoming one with 
the blacktop, you realize you haven't even 
reached the Campus Center yet, and you are 
fifteen minutes late for class. 

eft: This year, the Chancellor's Garden is one of 
le newest "renovations" made on campus. 

-photo by Joe Minkos 

Later in the day, and several cups of 
coffee later, you are mores ready to meet the 
"exciting" challenges that you are forced to 
face on campus. You walk over a rickety 
wooden bridge to get to the Engineering 
building, unsure if it will hold you and the 
twenty others crossing at the same time. You 
try to master a way through the clever laby- 
rinth of fences and barricades to reach re- 
mote sections of campus. A one mile walk 
turns into a four mile jog as you find yourself 
late for a mandatory lab and stuck some- 
where near the Parking Garage. 

And don't think all the fun is being part 
of the action; the UMass construction adven- 
ture is a passive sport as well. Just sit back in 
the Blue Wall with a Collegian and look out 
the window as your peers dodge two-story 
dirt piles, get trapped in ditches, hurdle 
wooden blocks and shimmy between two 
tractors as they try to get to class. You are part 
of the construction wherever you are, whether 
it be the tar you find tracked in on your rug 
or the constant din of machinery that con- 
stantly rings in your ears. 

As you watch the few remaining patches 
of landscape get tarred over with pavement 
you realize the UMass construction adven- 
ture has become a huge part of campus life 
and it seems the "ride" is not nearly over yet.

redit cards have become a way of 
life for college students. Usually, 
one of the millions of credit companies 
are camped out on the concourse offering 
free coffee mugs or the useful pen and 
pencil set for just filling out the easy to 
follow applications. 

Gone are the days of being rejected 
for having no credit. Now it seems pos- 
sible for anyone to get a credit card. The 
basic qualification that is asked by the 
hundreds of credit hocking vendors is a 
valid student ID (which everyone has). A 
small random sampling of UMass stu- 
dents revealed that an average student 
possesses at least one, but maybe up to 4 
or 5 cards by the time they have gradu- 
ated. The Sears credit card "is almost 
guaranteed when a student reaches their 
junior year in college" says an unnamed 
college student who happened to jump in 
front of me while I was strolling through 
the mall (I chose the atlas!). 

The Discover card, thecard that keeps 
on giving, will give their new members a 
$1000 credit limit to begin with and a 
nifty number that will work in bank ma- 
chines which will allow the user to with- 
draw CASH! The fun thing about this 
card is that they give you personalized 
checks too. The potential is unlimited. 

The UMass Alumni Association has 
a card too. So when we all leave this 
hallowed grounds and we need to re- 
member what the campus looks like, rip 
out the charge card and look at the serene 
portrait of the chapel. 

Why have credit cards become such a 


s at*

huge piece of the college experience? Con- 
gressman Kennedy publicly stated that 
college students should not be allowed to 
get credit cards unless they have been 
properly educated about the responsi- 
bilities and dangers of these cards. Next 
we'll hear Nancy Reagan saying, "Just 
say NO to credit cards!" It seems that the 
older generations feel that college stu- 
dents aren't adults and have no concept 
of finances. Well, personally, since the 
economy is bad and there aren't summer 
jobs for college students anymore, they 
support my life in school. 

Are they evil or are they a means of 
for survival for college students? I guess 
the only way to personally judge what 
they are is to experience the joys and 
pains of owing.

at any of the five colleges, new young artists are 
struggling in the hopes of hitting it big. 

The styles of these local bands are various. 
If you crave a punk-type sound, bands like 
Amanda's Dirty Secret, Meristem, or Princess, 
then go no further than the Valley. If you are 
looking for a funky sounding bands like Minibus 
or Borderland, look in your back yard. If you 
wanted a touch of the blues, Square Pyramid or 
Cottonmouth could satisfy that craving. If you 
wanted something great and indescribable then 
you could have checked out Cameron's Way, 
Electric Noodle Factory, Falafel Boy, Knuckle 
Sandwich, Synaesthesia, or yeP! . All of these bands 
are trying to make the jump that the Pixies, Dino- 
saur Jr., and Buffalo Tom made. 

One of the popular highlights of the Pioneer 
Valley scene is the annual Loud Music Festival. 
This year, as always, the festival was held in a 

variety of Northampton hot spots with a multi- 
tude of bands from A-Bone to Tizzy. More than a 
dozen small time bands participated in this an- 
nual tradition again hoping exposure in this area 
will boost them to the big time. 

This year the Pioneer Valley also attracted 
artist of national attention. Belly, Radiohead, 
Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Rage Against the 
Machine, Quicksand, Pavement, George Clinton, 
the Story, the Judybats, Paul Westerberg, Count- 
ing Crows, the Posies, Dig, the Meatpuppets and 
many, many more made an appearance in the 
Happy Valley either at UMass or in Northampton 
bringing with them fans from all over. 

In the Pioneer Valley there is always a call 
for a good time and good music. With the five 
colleges in such a small area, music is spawned for 
the enjoyment of the college population-.^j-^

Concerts, Sporting Events, and 

You can see it all at The Mullins Center! 

How did the students feel about the 
Mullins Center arena in its second year of 
being open? "I think it's one of the best thing 
about UMass. It makes other forms of enter- 
tainment, like concerts and special perfor- 
mances such as Kristi Yamaguchi ice skat- 
ing, more accessible to students," commented 
Tania Fernandez, a junior biochemistry ma- 

Students were most appreciative of the 
new arena when it housed sports events like 
Hockey and Men's and Women's Basketball 
games. This year the Women's Basketball 
team played some of their games under the 
lights at Mullins, with hopes that they might 
make the arena their permanent home. The 
Mullins Center was also home to the Men's 
team, which was the Atlantic-10 Champion 
and was beloved by all Minutemaniacs. Dur- 
ing games, the noise level reached high pitch 
decibels as the students screamed, shouted 
and chanted their team on to a great season. 
Outside the Mullins Center, students lined 
up hours before to get a front row seat in the 
student section. They braved the cold, sub-

doctorate of Education here at the University of 
Massachusetts, visited the campus in the fall to

zero temperatures of this year's brutal win- 
ter. Snow, rain, or mid-term exams could not 
keep the students away from seeing an ac- 
tion packed Minuteman game. Amy 
McCormack, a junior double psychology and 
theater major, remarked, "I loved it. Every 
game was a great show of school spirit." 

Also this year, the Hockey team started 
it's very first season after a lengthy absence 
from the University. Although the games 
were not well attended the students still 
thought that it was 
great that Hockey 
had returned to 
UMass. Erik Dodge, 
a junior mechanical 
engineering major, 
commented, "I think 
the Hockey team has 
been a great addition 
to the school's sports 
program. I can't wait 
until the Big East 
comes. " This year the 
Hockey team played 
against Division 2 
and 3 teams, but next 
year UMass will be 
in the Big East Divi- 
sion 1 League. As a 
result, the games will 

u have greater attendance as the teams UMcl 

■ will be playing will be of higher rank. 

■ Another benefit of the new arena tit 

■ students enjoyed was the popular rock cc 
" cert line-up produced at the Mullins Centij 
"At what other university could Elton Job 
■Aerosmith, and Mariah Carey be witli ( 

■ walking distance. Students did not have <• 

■ travel all the way to Worcester or SpringfiJij 
"to see their favorite band perform wher! 
"was so close to home. Mariah Carey pa 

ned her first rehearsal concert for UMass 
ing the fall semester, perfecting her diva 
:e for UMass fans. Students were also 
py at the fact that they got to see this 
mlar performer for only $10. 
Events were also offered at the Mullins 
iter for children and adults alike. During 
spring, Sesame Street Live came to Amherst 
>erform their musical "Big Bird and the 
C's." The Globe Trotters arrived to bring 
to a lot of children, and though they 
;ht deny it, the adults enjoyed the show as

The Mullins Center was a great source of 
student employment. All in all, between the 
front of house staff, concessions, and set up 
crew, the arena employed about 300 stu- 
dents. Jen Desousa, a junior biology major 
commented on her experience working at 
the Arena, "I enjoy working at the Mullins 
Center. It gives me the opportunity to work 
in an entertainment environment." Ed 
Murphy, who is the events manager at 
UMass, coordinates the ushers, ticket takers, 
set-up crew, and maintenance workers said

that he was happy working with a student

UMass won highest at the Northeast 
Regional American College Dance Festival 
at Boston University for a duet chreographed 
by senior Dance major Tony Silva, and pre- 
formed by Silva and Elizabeth Delia Ratta, a 
senior Dance and Nutrition major. Silva and 
Delia Ratta were invited to perform the duet 
called Believing Me at the National College 
Dance Festival at the John F. Kennedy Center 
for the Performing Arts, Washington D.C. on 
April 28th in one of three gala concerts. The 
three day event included performances of 
the best college dances from the eight re- 
gions in the United States, master dance 
classes, panel discussions, and a performance 
by the Dance Theater of Harlem. Tony Silva's 
work was one of only four entries chosen 
from the total 54 entries of the Northeast 
Region, selected for National Honors and 
performance at the Kennedy Center. This 
merits UMass as one of top dance depart- 
ments in the nation. 

Tony Silva's Believing Me was a Modern 
Dance piece which the ups-and-downs of a 
relationship from confrontation to sensual 
harmony. Most of all the dance was about 

not giving up even though the relationship 
was difficult. Silva and Elizabeth Delia Ratta's 
performance were highly acclaimed by the 
audience at the Boston Regional Festival, 
and more importantly, by the three interna- 
tionally famous adjudicators: Denise 
Jefferson, the director of the Alvin Ailey 
Dance Center; Mark Taylor, the director of 
Dance Alloy and Mark Taylor and Friends; 
and Bessie Schonberg, who has a prestigous 
award called The Bessie named after her. 

The adjudication of the dances at the 
regional festival provided a yardstick by 
which to measure students' work and per- 
formances by professional standards. This 
kind of professionalism is cultivated at 
UMass. Over the past 25 years, UMass has 
produced some of the best dancers from any 
liberal arts schools in New England. 

The University benefited from the 
visiblity and recognition gained at the Na- 
tional College Dance Festival. The prestige 
achieved through the Kennedy Center per- 
formance helped make UMass a more desir- 
able school to attend for those seeking a 
quality dance program.

students, the campus becomes less intimidating.

Where's that Map?! 

First Impressions of UMass 

You've finally done it — graduated from 
high school and moved on to college, possi- 
bly the final chapter in your academic educa- 

So, where exactly are you? Somewhere 
on the UMass campus, at least you know that 
much. But beyond that who knows? Send 
out the search and rescue team. All you have 
to do is remain calm and follow the map 
(which is easier to read sideways). There's 
your dorm! It's right across campus. Go past 
the pond and up the hill, it will only take 
fifteen minutes. Really! The administration 
says so. Remember, straight past the pond 
and up the hill. 

Aargh! You live on the top of that hill?! 
No one mentioned climbing a hill that's too 
steep for cars to drive up in winter! Well, it 
could be worse, somehow. 

So, now that you're on the hill all you 

have to do is find your room number. "Well 

your room's been changed. You're in 311 

Right: For many first-year students, getting infor- 
mation from concourse tables helps to ease the 
transition into college life.

The Fresh Batch 

Imagine trying to teach a person every- 
thing he or she would need to know to survive 
at UMass. You would have to teach that person 
about graduation requirements, howto choose 
classes (and how to read a pre-reg guide!), 
about touch-tone registration, choosing a 
major, and choosing an advisor. You would 
also have to teach that person how to choose 
his or her housing, which means telling him or 
her about each residential area on campus 
and then teaching him or her how to use a 
housing preference form. Campus social life 
would also be a topic you would want to 
discuss with this person, telling him or her 
about the RSOs, Fraternities and Sororities, 
and the othersocial outlets here in the Pioneer 
Valley. Imagine trying to tell all of this informa- 

and math testing, the new students have the 
opportunity to meet with faculty advisors who 
help the students make concrete decisions 
about their schedules. Soon after, the student 
is introduced to the wonders of touch-tone 
registration. Housing tours show students their 
future homes and in combination with semi- 
nars, the students decide where they would 
like to try and live. After all the official things, 
finally the day is left for fun: open stage, 
movie, or the ice-cream tour. 

The second day is more of the same type 
things, more tests, more seminars. By the end 
of the orientation, hopefully these new stu- 
dents will be ready to conquer the obstacles at

than three days each, during the summer! 
Now, imagine yourself on the other side, com- 
pletely clueless, trying to learn it all. Welcome 
to the New Students program. 

The New Students Program, which is 
responsible for acquainting prospective and 
new students with the University, is probably 
best know on campus for its summer Orienta- 
tion Program. This 
program, held in June 
and July, is usually a 
new student's first 
real introduction to 
the UMass. At the 
heart of the summer 
Orientation Program 
are the orientation 
counselors, logistic 
staff, registrar's staff, 
faculty advisors, and 
administrators who 
make it all possible. 
The two and half day 
programs attempt to 
immerse new stu- 
dents into the UMass 

A typical Orien- 
tation Program forthe 
first-year student 
starts with an intro- 
duction to academics 
by a student orienta- 
tion counselor. The 
students learn about 
the wonderful world 
of Gen-Eds and 
graduation require- 
ments in their very 
first meeting of the ori- 
entation, and even 
pickclasses. The next 
day, after a morning

students about the University is to make the

"Frankly, UMass orientation is the worst 
thing about the school." And so, with those not- 
so-inspiring words from an older, experienced 
brother, I departed for my dreaded summer ori- 
entation. I had visited the campus before, but all 
of the buildings were a blur in my mind. I didn't 
Southwest from the Student Union and I didn't 
really care. "Why should I?" I thought. "I'll just 
sign in, pick some classes, try out the food and 
then it'll be over and I can get back to enjoying a 
comfortable summer at home. " Well, things didn't 
go as smoothly as I had hoped, but those few days 

weren't as horrible as my brother had predicted. 

The first 24 hours were probably the worst, 
since this is when the realization that I was actu- 
ally at college sunk in. No more planning, no more 
applications, no more self-descriptive essays and 
not a single SAT to take. This may seem like a 
relief to some, but to me, it was also a scare. After 
all, I had done all those things to get to this point, 
and what if I screwed it up? I tried to put those 
fears aside and make the most of my two days- 
since I still had two months to savor before the real 
thing commenced. 

So I played the silly "getting to know you, 
getting to know all about you" games the counse- 
lors forced upon us. And I made the obligatory 
small-chat with the people in my small group — 
none of whom I've seen since. Then came the most 
stressful, aggravating, boring time of the whole 
orientation — picking classes. This was the first 
time I was exposed to SBs, PSs, ALDs, Gen-Eds, 
multi-digit codes, lecture sections, discussion sec- 
tions, 12:20 classes, 9:05 classes (which should I 
choose? !) and of course everything was located in 
different buildings all over campus. After perfect- 
ing the ideal schedule (nothing too early, nothing 
too late and enough time to get back to the dorm 
for the afternoon talk shows), I was told "Sorry, 
that one is filled up — upperclassmen get first 
pick, ya know?" and "Oops, there was a misprint- 
that one isn't being offered this semester, sorry." 
AAARRGGHH!!! The frustration, the pressure, 
the anger! It seemed like the only classes that 
weren't filled up started with "Underwater..." 
What's a freshman, oops, I mean the "first-year 
student" to do (they started the P.C. early!). 

I finally got to speak to an advisor and we 
worked out a pretty decent schedule with the 
classes I needed and some that I even looked 
forward to. The good news was I still had my 
afternoons free for "Couch Potato 101". The bad 
news was that I got stuck with early morning 
classes. Oh, well, at least the process was over and 
I had successfully pre-registered ("What do you 
mean 'pre'? Do I have to do it again?" I asked with 
fear in my eyes). 

When my mom's car finally rolled around 
on the last day, I was able to let out a sigh of relief. 
I had made it. And it wasn't horrible after all. I had 
only gotten lost once, I had my first taste of 
Antonio's pizza, and I had managed to make it 
through 2 nights in the dorm while some strange 
kid from New Jersey snored 5 feet away from me. 
I guess my first taste of college wasn't so sour after 
all — perhaps my first collegiate lesson was that 
older brothers don't know everything.

"Where the heck are my classes?" A sigh of 
relief comes when the building is found, then 
you rummage through your schedule. Upon 
opening the door, you see about 200 other 
students waiting for class to start. The fun 
now begins, finding a seat. Happy to finally 
be where you belong, you comfortably settle 
into your seat. The adjustment from high 
school to the much larger college setting can 
be very difficult for first-year students. 

Coming to college for the first time is a 
difficult transition, but coming to the realiza- 
tion that you might actually have to do some 
work is a shock. In high school, we all knew 
that we could always get by when we stud- 

must finally learn to budget our time and 
concentrate our academic studies. Music 
major Doug Metcalf said, "I didn't think that 
the college workday would run from 8 a.m. 
till the wee hours of the morning." 

The lecture hall classes were common 
things we all had to adjust to. Walking into a 
room of 200 to 500 other students and actu- 
ally learning to pay attention was a transition 
we all had to make. Reminiscing back to the 
first day classes, Biology major Kayvan 
Darovian remembered walking into his first 
lecture by saying, "Wow! How come there 
are 200 people here?" Mimian Morales had 
this to say about her (continued on p. 165) 


(continued from p. 164) classes, "I've been 
involved in the Orchard Hill residential pro- 
gram and had normal lecture hall classes and 
I can definitely say you learn more in a 
smaller class. The atmosphere is more con- 
ducive to learning." 

After being here a year, we have all 
gotten into the swing of things. We are learn- 
ing more about ourselves everyday. Even 
though some of us have no clue as to what we 
want to do for the rest of our lives, we are 
beginning to get a better idea from the differ- 
ent classes we are taking.

An iplfill (Ultrnb 

This year, the University of Massachusetts 
at Amherst welcomed a new chancellor, Dr. David 
K. Scott. Chancellor Scott hails from the storm- 
ridden Orkney Islands off the coast of Scotland. 
Upon spending some time with Chancellor Scott, 
he is likely to tell you of his years of education in 
Scotland and England. He emphasizes over and 
over that the majority of it was free. 

The Chancellor earned a Bachelor of Sci- 
ence degree in Physics at the University of 
Edinburgh in 1962. He went on to Oxford Univer- 
sity to receive the Doctor of Philosophy degree in 
Physics in 1967. 

Before becoming an administrative politi- 
cian, Chancellor Scott held many different posi- 
tions, including being a researcher at the Univer- 
sity of California at Berkeley and the Scientific 
Director of the Cyclotron Laboratory at the 
Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. In 1979, he ac- 
cepted the position of John A. Hannah Distin- 
guished Professor of Physics, Astronomy, and 
Chemistry at Michigan State University. 

In 1983, he became the Associate Provost at 
Michigan State University and eventually went 
on to become the Provost and Vice President for 
Academic Affairs. In July 1993, Dr. Scott became 
the new chancellor of UMass- Amherst. 

Chancellor Scott's year began with few prob- 
lems. He stated that he was concerned with many 
issues regarding the University, including issues 
of racial diversity on campus, the involvement of 
the wider public in the University, and the use of 
the University to support economic growth in the 

His troubles began in October in the now 
famous mascot incident. A small group of stu- 
dents opposed to the Minuteman symbol looked 
to Chancellor Scott in hopes that he would sup- 
port their efforts and change the image. However, 
Chancellor Scott stated that the issue was not 
open for debate, spurring the radical student group 
to take further measures. After a member of the 
anti-MLnuteman group began a hunger strike, the 
Chancellor stepped forward in an effort to resolve 
the conflict. He did and the hunger strike ended 
over pizza. 

In November, the Chancellor met with more 
opposition and conflict. During a hiring freeze 
declared by President Michael Hooker at the Uni- 

versity, Scott hired two administrators from Michi- 
gan State University, Marcellette and Keith Will- 
iams. Marcellette's position, Deputy Chancellor, 
was created by Scott. Keith moved into the posi- 
tion of Associate Vice Chancellor for University 
Advancement. The couple's combined annual 
salary of $185,000 has been greatly criticized by 
both students and faculty. 

In February, Chancellor Scott met with yet 
another conflict, this time over tuition and fees for 
the University. The Student Government Asso- 
ciation (SGA) learned of proposed increases for 
the following fiscal year and decided to lobby 
against them. They sought commitment from 
Chancellor Scott in their quest for a zero percent 
increase. The Chancellor did not change his stance, 
still saying that the University needed a four to 
seven percent increase in tuition and fees. The 
SGA, upset with the position that the administra- 
tion had taken, closed down the University Ad- 
missions Center in an occupation, calling for the 
support of the administration in their quest for a 
zero percent increase in tuition and fees. After 
many hours, Chancellor Scott signed an agree- 
ment in the late hours of the night that said that he 
would support the student's quest for no increase 
in the tuition and fees higher than the rate of 
inflation. He also stated that if the increase were 
over the rate of inflation, he would increase the 
financial aid pool. The campus became unified: 
student, faculty, and administration. 

Upon entering his new position as chancel- 
lor, Scott stated that there was to be changes in the 
administration at UMass-Amherst in order to 
ensure the best possible team working for the 
betterment of the University. Late in April, the 
Chancellor took action with his dismissal of Pro- 
vost Glen Gordon and Vice-Chancellors Samuel 
Conti and Daniel Melley . This action has met with 
mixed reviews. Some are hailing dismissals steps 
as a first step to the reconstruction of the Univer- 
sity, while others, such as the Faculty Union, are 
expressing their dismay in these actions. 

Overall, Chancellor Scott has had a positive 
year, one with both ups and downs. Although it 
was not flawless or problem-free, the Chancellor 
is slowly gaining acceptance.

We the Students . . . 

By re-creating the Student Center for 
Education Research and Advocacy (SCERA) 
this year, the UMass Student Government 
Association (SGA) made the decision to fo- 
cus most of its efforts on making UMass a 
more affordable school. The Student Senate 
became a lobbying force on Beacon Hill and 
some members spent more time in Boston 
convincing legislators to increase state fund- 
ing to UMass than they did in the classroom. 

With his doctorate in Higher Education, 
Dr. Mark Kennon a former graduate student 
at UMass and past President of the Graduate 
Student Senate, headed SCERA and orga- 
nized the large-scale SGA drive to cut stu- 
dent costs at UMass. 

In past years the SGA focused on a com- 
bination of internal issues affecting UMass, 
including which dorms would get condom 
machines, and national politics, spending 
hours in Senate meetings debating which 
candidates to officially support. Three years 
ago the Senate was almost disbanded by the 
administration. The Senate's evolution as a 
meaningful body of student representatives 
was seen this year in major events and deci- 
sions. The Senate began its goal of reducing 
costs at UMass by working to convince Chan- 
cellor David Scott, President Michael Hooker, 
and the Board of Trustees not to increase 
tuition and fees next year. Early in the year 
the SGA felt no one was listening, so they 
took over the University Admissions Center 
in a snowstorm and caused a media sensa- 
tion, until the Chancellor publicly stated that 
he supported a zero percent increase if the 
state budget to the school would increase by 
the rate of inflation. 

Student Senators then lobbied our State 
Senators and Representatives on Beacon Hill 
in support of the UMass Budget Request, 
which, if passed, will increase the state bud- 
get to the school by seven percent. Senators 

made political and media contacts and earned 
regular meetings with state officials. Their 
large-scale tactics culminated with "State 
House Day," a bus trip made by some three 
hundred students to Beacon Hill. Students 
met with State Senators and Representatives 
and attended a luncheon with Governor Weld 
celebrating the Women's Athletic Program. 
Every student who went was excused from 
classes with a note from the Provost Glen 

This year, the Student Senate won a major 
battle that had lasted six years. The Legal 
Services Office won limited litigation rights 
back. LSO provides free legal advice and 
information to all UMass undergrads. Six 
years ago it lost its right to litigate on behalf 

of students after a student representee 
LSO sued the University. SGA lobbiec 
limited LSO rights to litigate against prir 
businesses and landlords but not the Unl 
sity or student vs. student. The Senate fil 
bill in the Statehouse that was favor 
passed by the Education Committee. El 
tually the Board of Trustees gave in i 
restored LSO's limited litigation before 
bill went any further. 

The Student Senate also re-wrote its I 
stitution this year and created a solvent t 
stitution with a three body government 
fectively turning the student body of UT» 
into a collective bargaining and lobb; 
unit, gaining official recognition by the ! 
and the Board of Trustees. Matt Mai

feed that the BOG, with its $70,000 budget, 

was no longer cost effective and formed the 
Campus Center /Student Union Commis- 
sion, with a $14,000 budget, in its place. 

The Student Senate also got criticized for 
voting to allocate $15,000 to pay Black Mus- 
lim activist Dr. Louis Farrakhan to speak on 
campus. During Senate debate of the issue, 
Hillel President and Senator Alan Weinfield 
was expelled from his seat on the Third World 
Caucus by its members for the methods he 
used in attempt to gain support against bring- 
ing Farrakhan to UMass. Eventually, 
Weinfield was re-instated. Harvard Univer- 
sity has decided to include Weinfield's ex- 
pulsion in a book in the making about anti- 
semitism on college campuses. 

The Senate experienced its own scandal 
at election time for the 1994-95 SGA Presi- 
dent and Trustee election. Al Lizana ran for 
re-election as Student Trustee against Sena- 
tor Diego Figueroa. Driven by President 
David Nunez's choice not to seek re-election, 
Mirran Raphaely, a SCERA Media Coordi- 
nator, joined Lizana's ticket. Joe Vozza, also

ciation worked very hard this year to ensure 
students a voice in University and State politics.

interested in the presidency, ran with 
Figueroa. Chad Lechner, President of the 
Radical Student Union and an advocate of 
"No UMass Tuition," also ran for President. 
Approximately 2,400 students voted and Al 
Lizana won his position by about 500 votes. 
But when votes were tabulated for President, 
it was obvious that 75 ballots had been stuffed. 
All candidates agreed to invalidate the votes, 
and in the end Raphaely won by 140 votes, 
though support for both major candidates 
was strong, each receiving over 1,000 votes. 

The SGA reconstruction has been a great 
asset to the student body this year and no 
doubt will continue to represent the needs of 
the students in the years to come.

Finding Your Mm ♦ 


he thing is, you don't need to go 
to the dining commons in a herd anymore," 
sophomore Dave Jastrow told me. "When I 
was a lowly freshman so long ago, before I 
gained the wisdom of age and..." 

Dave's story eventually detailed the fact 
that when he returned from his first three 
month summer vacation from UMass, he 
could actually leave the 7th Floor of Field 
and find Franklin Dining Commons alone. 

"Don't kid yourself," Chris Maclin, also 
a sophomore, continued, "When we ran down 
halls yelling, 'Who wants to go to lunch?' we 
didn't really want to go to lunch with all 
those dweebs. We didn't want to get lost." 

"He speaks the truth," said Dave, "ex- 
cept we never ran down the halls. We called 
the guys down the hall with voicemail." 

Chris and Dave are just two examples of 
sophomores finally finding their niches at 
UMass. The stories they told were repeated 
by many. From joining clubs to forgetting 
that people called parents exist, sophomores 
all over the place agreed they felt comfort- 
able in a UMass state of mind. 

"You want to do things like join the 
award-winning student organization that 
publishes the yearbook, the Index," said jun- 
ior Journalism major Kristen Rountree, who 
joined the staff when she was a sophomore. 

Sitting around drinking in a dorm room 
alone doesn't seem to cut it, either, which is 
largely why sophomores find jobs on cam- 

"I realized when I got back I didn't know 
enough people with cars and ID, and I didn't 
have enough money to buy, so I got a job 
working at Telefund. I met lots of people 
who were 21 and I earned money. And I 
haven't told my parents a thing," said one 
sophomore who requested for obvious rea- 
sons to remain anonymous. 

"You just walk around campus and you 
realize, all this is mine. It belongs to me," said 
Denis Dersarkesian, a junior reminiscing 
fondly over hs second year. "You even get to 
live off campus. My professors work for me. 
I own this place. I can give directions to all

Are We 
Having Fun Yet? 

"This is getting old." This is a phrase that 
most sophomores can relate to. The reason 
for this outlook on life is obvious. Sopho- 
mores get into a slump, brought on by being 
in the second quarter of their college careers, 
and no longer having to face the interesting 
challenges of freshman life. 

For one thing, classes don't hold the 
same fascination they used to. As a freshman 
classes are new, fun, and inviting as com- 
pared to classes in high school. As you enter 
your sophomore year, your classes, for the 
most part, are not specific to your major. As 
a sophomore, you find yourself learning the 
stuff that needs to be done, not the stuff you want 
to learn. You have general education require- 
ments to fulfill. As a result, you experience 
the added challenge of fighting to get into 
classes. When you finally get into these 
classes, you find yourself just trying to slide 
by, looking forward to the interesting classes. 
For the time being, it seems to that your 
college career is going nowhere. The Sopho- 
more Slump starts here. 

The social scene also changes form from 
freshman to sophomore year. Partying at 

same as when you are a freshman. Back then, 
every person was new and every event was 
a fresh experience. 

Another factor contributing to the Sopho- 
more Slump is that you are still living on 
campus. Let's face it, campus dorms may be 
for some people, but by the time you have 
been there for a year they lose their "away 
from home" luster. You may have to travel 
two or three flights of stairs to get to a bath- 
room not covered with puke from some 
freshman's bad night. You have to go to the 
DC, too. It's quantity, but not quality. Cam- 
pus living is fine when you are freshman. It 
gives you a chance to meet some people and 
find your niche, but soon after your fresh- 
man year, you really want to expand your 
view in accommodations. 

For the most part, Sophomore Slump 
just consists of a great deal of waiting. You 
find yourself waiting to get into your first 
apartment, waiting to take your first real 
class, and waiting to turn 21 and go uptown. 
However, after the sophomore year, it all 
gets better, or at least it should. 

-by Dan Fulton 

UMass is always fun, if you go in with the 
right attitude. However, with classes having 
started the Slump, partying sometimes be- 
comes a chore. Having to take a bus as 
crowded as a Tokyo subway at rush hour, to 
get to a party more crowded, at which it takes 
ten hours to get a drink, is sometimes hard to 
get psyched for. There is always a chance to 
meet a significant other, but a lot of people 
have boyfriends or girlfriends so you have to 
be careful. Overall, partying is just not the

"Don't forget to pay your phone bill on 
time," my father says. 

"I knoooooow!" I answer annoyed and 

"Will you call on Wednesday?" 

"Don't I always?" I ask again, aggra- 

Sometimes I wish my parents would 
leave me alone. They often remind me to do 
things I've already done or say things I've 
already said. Most of the time I wonder if 
they realize that I'm 19, a sophomore in 
college, and 200 miles from home. 

When I was a freshman I spoke to my 
parents three times a week for about ten 
minutes each time. I told them most of the 
details of my life; leaving out the things 
parents don't need to know about. I was 
happy with that arrangement. I often looked 
forward to calling them, particularly on Sun- 
day when the pangs of homesickness started 
to sink in. But things have changed. 

I am no longer that scared, homesick 
freshman. As a sophomore I have gained a 
better understanding of my surroundings; 
they no longer overwhelm me, now they 
comfort me. Now I speak with my parents 


I shared a lot of things with them they had 
never known before. I felt that they were 
finally starting to respect me as a person and 
as their adult equal. I thought relations had 
finally changed between us. But when I re- 
turned to school everything went back to the 
way it had been. My parents expected me to 
call often and tell them everything. They 
expected more than a letter a month. They 
expected me to still be that little girl in pig- 
tails and braces. 

I am sitting alone in my room when the 
phone rings. It is my mother. The conversa- 
tion begins like all the others, about life in my 
town. I quickly think of an excuse to get off 
the phone. Just as I am about to say good-bye, 
my mother tells me how much it means to 
her that we have a good relationship. She 
says she can't believe how much I've grown 
up. And then she tells me that she's glad 
we're friends as well as mother and daugh- 
ter. She then goes on to say how she never 
had a good relationship with her mother and 

once a week, if that, for as little time as 

I don't depend on them for the same 
things that I used to. They are my financial 
support more than my emotional crutch; my 
friends more than my parents. When I have 
a problem I know that I have other sources of 
support and comfort. I have gained enough 
experience to be able to handle things with- 
out running to Mom and Dad for advice. I 
don't understand why it is so hard for my 
parents to let go. 

I spent all of last summer alone with my 
parents and because of it we became closer. 


how she hopes things will be different be- 
tween us now that I am an adult. 

Suddenly I understand that encourag- 
ing me to go to school out-of-state was their 
way of letting go. I also realized that it must 
have been really difficult for them to wake 
up one morning and discover that the house 
was empty and their children didn't really 
need them anymore. I realize that no matter 
what I do or where I go I will always be the 
"baby" of the family and that somehow my 
parents will always think of me that way. I 
understand that a part of them still wants me 

to be a child. Actually a part of me does also.

Nicotine, the Addict, and the Enjoyment: 

The Prohibition is back! First it was the 
war against alcohol in the roaring '20s and 
now it is smoking in the '90s. Smoking is a 
timeless American Classic, just like Mom's 
apple pie and baseball. Humphrey Bogart 
always had his debonair cigarette in the cor- 
ner of his mouth; Fred Flinstone endorsed 
Winston cigarettes in the '60s; Virginia Slims 
grasped the Women's Movement with their 
catchy ads showing the rebellious female 
smoking; the Phillip Morris Company en- 

dorsed and funded part of the birth- 
day celebration of the Constitution of 
the United States; the American 
farmer tends his acres of tobacco, 
dreaming the American Dream; and 
the several cents given back to the 
government every time a smoker buys 
a pack; it couldn't be a bigger piece of 
Americana. Everyone is aware of the 
side effects and risks that are associated 
with smoking, but I guess that's part of 
the excitement, wondering if it is true what 
they say about every cigarette being seven 
minutes of the life. The little white boxes on 
the side of each pack with a grim message 
from the Surgeon General tells of the poten- 
tial hazards, but it comes down to the fact 
that it is the smoker's personal choice whether 
or not to risk death. 

It has been brought to the greater public 's 
attention that second-hand smoke may cause 
cancer and other fun, but deadly diseases. 
All right, fine, just separate those who choose 
to from those who choose not to. It seems like 
an easy enough thing. The University said 
that was easy enough to do, just make every- 
body smoke outdoors. Now it seems inevi- 
table that a campus-wide outbreak of bron- 
chitis is coming. In the snow, sleet, and rain,

f you take a look at some of the fa- 
■ mous American's who smoke, or 
ild I say smoked, like John Wayne, 
phrey Bogart, and the Marlboro Man 
they all have one thing in 
common, they're all 
DEAD! They 
all have in 

common some sort of cancer that killed 
them. So cancer is also becoming an 
American tradition. Now that second- 
smoke has been related to cancer, just 
like actually inhaling, this new smoking 
ban on campus was needed. 

Finally our air is clean. At least in 
public buildings. This year at UMass, 
smoking was banned in all public build- 
ings. This is a serious problem. We non- 
smokers are serious, this is war. A war 
against smoking and now we have taken 
the battle to the Cape Cod Lounge, Cam- 

Union, the possible nuclear capability in 
North Korea and the Bobbit trial take a 
back seat to second-hand smoke. 

Non-smokers can't understand smok- 
ing. Non-smokers can't understand how 
smokers find this new ban on smoking 
inside unfair. The ban is not on smoking 
itself. We just want our space to be smoke 
free. Smoke really only collects indoors. 
You never get a smoky outdoors. (Unless 
you count the bear.) 

If by now you have not been bom- 
barded by the studies that give the dan- 


Herter Halls. 

Our main serious concern is sec- 
ond-hand smoke. We are serious 
about our personal safety. For us 
there is nothing more dangerous in 
this world than second-hand 
smoke. To us the war in Bosnia, 
the breakup of the former Soviet 

Arctic. It has recently come to light that 
smoke doesn't only harm those who 
smoke but those who are around lit ciga- 
rettes. Second-hand smoke is the reason 
for this ban. With this ban, the rights of 
non-smokers are restored and the cam- 
pus of UMass is a healthier place to be.

to escape second-hand smoke is to flee to the

Enough i$ Enough! 

Since 1988, tuition and fees at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts at Amherst have 
increased 168%, while funding for the Uni- 
versity has been drastically cut. These star- 
tling discoveries, found by the Student Cen- 
ter for Educational Research and Advocacy 
(SCERA) and the Student Government As- 
sociation (SGA), led to a massive campaign 
to not only involve students in the politics of 
their own University, 
but to bring to the 
attention of parents, 
friends, and alumni 
the dire situation the 
school is in. 

The Student 
Government Asso- 
ciation learned of a 
proposed seven per- 
cent increase that 
would lead to an in- 
crease in tuition and 
fees of between $600 
and $1,200. SGA, 
backed by many stu- 
dent, graduate, and 
faculty groups, approached Chancellor 
David K. Scott to ask for his support of a plan 
for a zero percent increase in tuition and fees. 
He refused and students, much like those of 
the 60's and 70's, wanted to show the admin- 
istration, legislators, and other universities 
that students of UMass were not going to 
accept this financial war against them. Over 
100 students risked expulsion, being jailed, 
and frost-bite as they stormed the Admis- 
sions building, calling for the Administra- 
tion to support its students. After many gru- 
eling hours, Chancellor Scott signed an agree- 
ment that said that he would support the 
zero percent increase plan. 

Some months later, the Higher Educa- 
tion Coordinating Council voted to suspend 
the increases in tuition at state and commu- 
nity colleges and universities, which was a 
milestone as it was the first time in many 

years that this council recognized the finan- 
cial strains that students are enduring to stay 
in school. 

However, the Board of Trustees voted 
for a four percent increase in fees to compen- 
sate for the fact that tuition was not increas- 
ing. There is one stipulation to the agree- 
ment. The fee increase will be rolled back 
provided that the State is to increase funding 

by seven percent to the UMass system. 

The House and Senate Ways and Means 
Committee, which writes the state budget, 
will vote on the proposed increase in July. 
SCERA and SGA representatives have met 
with the Representatives and Senators to 
discuss higher education and funding for the 
largest university system in Massachusetts, 
UMass. With mixed results, time will tell if 
UMass- Amherst will creep and steal the num- 
ber one position away from the University of 
Vermont for being the most expensive state 
university in the country. 

If all fails, at least the plights of students 
were heard this year in the State House. Also, 
with the reinstatement of SCERA, students 
will continue to have a voice in state govern- 
ment that they can use to defend their wal-

A Break from Reality 

ust as the pressures of the world 
start to hit you all at once, when 
your vision is so blurred from staring night 
after night at the text books, when you 
look in the mirror and see a few more grey 
hairs brought on by the hard-core pres- 
sure of all those exams, there is a light at 
the end of the tunnel: SPRING BREAK! 

I gathered all the essentials (tooth- 
brush, cologne, sunglasses, credit cards, 
condoms) to prepare myself for my much 
needed break, but where do I go. For many, 
home is a piece of paradise that can rem- 
edy the ailments of being overworked, 
however the thought of going home 
seemed more stressful than being at school. 

"Go south," was all that came out some 
of friends mouths as they piled 35 deep 
into their cars. No way, too many people, 
too long of a ride, plus I'm short a few 
months of being 21. 

As I pondered the possibilities that sat 
in front of me, I thought of our friendly 
neighbors to the north. But what is there in 
Canada? Montreal! 

There we were, at the train station in 
Amherst at 2 a.m., snow falling, winds 
howling, exhausted and miserable. I felt 
that we had truly made a horrible mistake. 
After the grueling eight hour train ride, I 
still wasn't sure if it was a good idea. 
Montreal was like Amherst, but colder. 
"Why am I here?" I thought to myself. But 
I quickly warmed up to the idea as we ran 
to Hurley's Pub after finding our hotel. 
The five of us (Sam, Kerry, Jean, Lisa, and 
myself: their names have been changed to 
protect the innocent) rejoiced as we par- 
took in our first legal beers. Ah, this was 

We ventured out onto the town going 
to the legendary Peel Pub where spirits 
were high and the food was cheap. We ate 
and drank and drank some more. By the 
end of the week, we had patronized it so 
much that the waiters and bouncer knew 

us. It was the Canadian version Cheers . 
Things began to look up now. 

The five of us ran to another great 
place called Sharp Shooter's where the 
owner would greet us just as Norm was on 
Cheers . We went every night and our new 
friend Fady made us honorary staff mem- 
bers by presenting us with staff shirts. 

However, even though we all made 
friends everywhere, some of us made 
friends a little too easy as Kerry, Sam, Jean, 
Lisa and myself found out. Our first night 
out on the town, Kerry somehow had ac- 
quired a strange little admirer who would 
not leave. Sam and I took care of him and 
we did not see him again until our last 
night, but that's another story. I met a 
rather drunk gentleman who didn't like 
Americans and told me "II knnoef hoowf 
too box!" The people were friendly as Lisa 
found as some strange man tried to give 
her his keys many times. Sam and Jean 
were found in the bathtub on more than 
one occasion. I really don't want to know 
what was going on. 

On our last night, it seemed that all our 
instances with the friendly northern neigh- 
bors condensed into one night. Kerry some- 
how acquired the admirer from the first 
night, as well as another tall dark stranger 
who said "call collect." She also attacked 
me as I sat at the bar. Speaking of being 
attacked, Jean was a little grabby which led 
to a beer shower as Sam jumped up in 
sudden terror. The night ended as we all 
wentback to laugh throughout the night at 
the occurrences of the week. 

Overall, the best description I can think 

of for my voyage is drunk. 11 shots is a 

rough way to start a night. Now that I've 

been back in Amherst for several hours, I 

wonder if I enjoyed this voyage too much. 

Now I have to decide whether it is time to 

start back the grindstone or time to call the 

Betty Ford Clinic.

Alpha Phi Omega, a community service 
fraternity, was introduced to the UMass cam- 
pus in 1952 by student E.G. Warner. It was 
adopted as an all male club and began its 
service by building a bridge across a stream 
where the School of Management now stands. 
Within the next few decades, it has become a 
fraternity to create a more cohesive and dedi- 
cated sense of community and has made 
itself co-ed by offering the opportunity for 
membership to all. 

APO employs its 30 active members to 
various services both on campus and 
throughout the community. On campus, their 
service includes volunteering at the annual 
bike registration, helping in the blood drive, 
as well as sponsoring Las Vegas Night which 
is a mock casino that donates the profits to 
needy organizations. APO lends a hand off- 
campus by helping patients at the Helen 
Mitchell Recovery Center and other such 
hospitals and raking leaves for the elderly. 

The members of APO feel that the en- 
ergy and time they spend helping people in 
the community is completely worthwhile 
and even helps improve themselves. Ining 
Hsu, a junior who is a member of the frater- 
nity said, "All the experience volunteering in 
APO has given me the opportunity to help 
others and improve my communication skills 
and leadership abilities." 

In an age where the need for help is 
steadily increasing, Alpha Phi Omega is ris- 
ing to meet the challenge through its many 
fund-raisers and service actions, helping the 
community while learning new skills to bet- 
ter themselves.

Home Alone 

The Agony of Being Underage 

£ t is Thursday and on the UMass campus 
that signals the time to start the drinking 
festivities that mark the beginning of the 
weekend. Your friends begin getting dressed 
to go uptown as screams of joy echo across 
campus from the over-stressed students get- 
ting psyched to again push their alcohol 
consumption records to the limits. But there 
is one problem in all of this: you are not 21. 

Being "legal" does not matter in the early 
years at UMass because there is always some- 
one willing to buy for minors and there are 
countless parties around that have endless 
amounts of beer. However, as you reach 
your third and fourth years in Amherst and 
you begin to tire slightly of the party scene, 
the bar scene begins to look more and more 
desirable. What could be better than the 
thought of you, on a bar stool with beer in 
hand, gazing over a dim, smoky bar full of 
people and hanging out with your peers (or 
not) at your own leisure? Whether you are 
playing pool or spilling your heart out to an 
unsympathetic bartender, the more "mature" 
atmosphere of local bars is much more ap- 
pealing to upperclassmen who have tired of 
the over-crowded freshmen filled parties 
around campus. For those who have not yet

reached the golden age, it is agony to watch 
your older friends go and close out all the 
Amherst pubs as you are forced to hang out 
with all the underage people on campus. 

Of course you can always attempt to try 
to pass for 21 so you can be with your friends, 
but that hardly ever works. How many times 
have those underage tried, in desperation, to 
find a way into a bar. I look older, don't I? 
Sure your brother's friend's cousin's sister's 
ID looks exactly like me. Of course it doesn't 
look as if you whited out your birth date. But 
local drinking establishments are stricter and 
smarter than most students suspect and very 
few underage people are able to pass the 
strict security that guards the entrances. Even 
Pearl Street, Northampton's popular dance 
club, has incredibly tight security and re- 
fuses to let anyone in who's under twenty- 
one to many of their live shows. 

It's a no win situation the underage up- 
perclassmen face when all their friends have 
reached the legal mark that they won't reach 
for many weeks, or months. These agonized 
souls console themselves with nights spent 
in a bottle of liquor bought by a friend, curs- 
ing their parents who had them too late.

mships Yield 

It is junior year and as your courses are 
getting more intense and graduation seems 
not so far away, your thoughts turn to the 
"reality" that awaits you in the not so distant 
future. What is the working world really 
going to be like? Is your major really what 
you want to dedicate the rest of your life to? 
Should you go to graduate school? This is the 
time of life when what you are studying 
becomes more concrete and the pressure to 
come out on top of the "competition" gets 
more intense. It is the perfect time to do an 
internship, an experience that subjects you to

the environment you will someday work in 
and provides a very interesting "hands-on" 
education that you can not get at school. 

Internships and Independent Studies are 
great ways of getting valuable training and 
experience in your field. An intern is hired 
into a firm through their school, sometimes 
for wages and /or credit, and works along 
with professional employees using the skills 
that they have learned in school. Sometimes 
they act as gophers, doing various errands 
for the employees that get them involved in 
many activities of the office. Other times they 
are assigned to work together with profes- 
sionals on the projects they are doing. No 
matter what the job, interns come out of the 
experience with not only a good feel for the 
workplace and a new sense of perspective on 
their major but also with excellent creden- 
tials to display on their resume. 

And it is not hard to find an interesting 
internship either. Mather Career Center, lo- 
cated off of East Pleasant Street behind Or- 
chard Hill, offers a wide variety of intern- 
ships to students who are interested. From 
MTV to the Boston Globe, students can apply 
to a wide range of available positions. Stu- 
dents can also talk with their advisors to get 
contacts and potential job opportunities, or 
look for posted bulletins around campus. 
Junior year is the perfect time to seize control 
of your life and apply what are studying in 
the real world. Internships have proven to be 
a great way to come out ahead.

major disaster. You are greeted with "Oh my 
God! I'm locked out and I need my key 
NOW!" This is always a great way to start 
your day. Then, when you ask them to hold 
on for a minute, the worst response from the 
resident is, "Well aren't you being paid to do 
this?" Again, it comes down to the fact that 
we don't get paid enough! 

Despite all of the trials and tribulations 
of being "an RA" I've really come to like this 
job. The staffs of RAs are great bunches of 
people. We thoroughly enjoy going on rounds 
together and hanging out in the cluster office 
with each other. I've also gotten a chance to 
help shape a floor into a community and 
have met a great deal of interesting people 
from all over the world. Through being an 
RA I've a learned a lot about the ways people 
work and think. I've even gotten used to 
being known as "Wendy the RA."

Senior Picnic 

On May 20, 1994, members of the senior 
class, came together for one last hurrah on the 
Metawampe lawn outside the Hatch. The Senior 
Picnic was put on for this year's seniors by the 
Alumni Association and drew a good size crowd, 
preparing to venture into the world of indepen- 
dence, careers, and health insurance. 

The local radio station, WRNX, provided 
music, contests and some old favorite picnic fun. 
Seniors participated in activities that allowed them 
to be young just once more. The DJ of WRNX 
hosted a very strict game of "Simon Says" in 
which half of the group was eliminated in the first 
minute. The true direction followers, otherwise 
known as the people who weren't caught moving 
before hearing the "simon says" hail of freedom, 
remained in the end and won prizes from the 
radio station. 

Activities for the members of the class who 
felt like they never truly came out of their shells in 
college were also provided. A DJ with a Karaoke 
machine was offering seniors the opportunity to 
publicly mutilate their favorite songs. Many se- 
niors tried their voices on old favorites like "Wel- 

come to the Jungle," originally by Guns N' Roses 
and "Down Under," originally by Men at Work. 
Although no one was approached with offers of 
record deals, students found themselves surprised 
at their peers' talent, or lack thereof. 

Others preferred the good old sports stand- 
bys. Frisbees flew across the lawn and the volley- 
ball court was never idle. Seniors also enjoyed the 
teamwork of a wheelbarrow race. 

In the end, some saw the picnic as a re- 
minder of how large UMass is. "There are people 
here that I've wanted to hang around with but 
never got the chance to," claimed one student, 
"but now it seems we've come to the end of the 
line." Some said that they enjoyed seeing people 
that they hadn't seen since freshman orientation. 
They felt it was a blast from the past of sorts and 
interesting to see how people who started out in 
the same place had evolved.

Food seems to be an obsession for the stu- 
dents at all universities in the United States, UMass 
being no exception. College students love food, 
why shouldn't they with all the different options 
that are presented to them. Amherst is the home 
to hundreds of excellent restaurants, giving the 
Dining Commons a run for their money. 

This year, UMass Food Services planned a 
grand gala event at the Mullins Center for all 
students on the meal plan. Each student was 
issued a pack of their very own coupons, good for 
one of each item that was being offered . The menu 
was centered around the different areas of the 
United States (New England, Midwest, South) 
and their unique cuisine. For example, the New 
England menu included New England Clam 
Chowder. Some of the highlights were the South- 
ern Mesquite Barbecued Chicken, New York Style 
Pizza from Antonio's, Chicago Style Pizza from 
Pizzeria Uno, Maine and Idaho Potatoes, 
Friendly's Sundae Cups, Philadelphia Cheese 
Steaks, Southern Catfish Fingers, and many other 
delicious treats. There was also entertainment 
that included a man on stilts that juggled, a band, 
and a raffle. 

The Mullins Center was packed, reminding 
many of a concert or basketball game. The floor 
and stands quickly became the dumping grounds 
for many left-overs from this fine feast. As the 
event came to an end, many left wondering why 
the Dining Commons couldn't feed us like that 
every day. 

Other excuses for UMass students to pig 
out are the outdoor pic- 
nics held by each resi- 
dential area. Each area 
puts together an event 
that brings residents 
out for food and good 
times. Northeast Area 
Day was called "The 
Northeast Pig-Out." 
The Sylvan Area held 
their festivities with a 
complete barbecue, in- 
cluding a band. Or- 
chard Hill, once again, 
filled their Bowl with a 
giant party, featuring 
an outdoor movie and 
enough food to feed a 
small country. South- 
west week went off 
with a bang again this 
year with a great deal 
of food consumption 
and good times to 

There seems to be 
a trend. Take some 
UMass students, add 
food, and the outcome is an event that will not be 
forgotten. Food, friends and fun go hand in hand.

This year's Hoopla was organized by 30 

Sports Management students who were en-

example of the change they made was ob- 
taining an unprecedented number of basket- 
ball hoops, which allowed them to register so 
many teams and manage as many as sixteen 
games at a time. The students also success- 
fully used Haigis Hoopla to combine UMass 
life with Amherst town community life. 

Students who attended the festivities no-

only times students of UMass and Amherst 
residents get together just to have fun. The

Haigis Hoopla turns the spectator sport of 
UMass hoop in the Mullins Center into an

Mud, Mud, Mud 

and Music 

It wasn't the sunniest of days. It wasn't 
the warmest of days. But it was one of the 
best days at UMass. On May 8, 1994, Univer- 
sity Productions and Concerts put on their 
annual Spring Concert. The music for this 
occasion was provided for by the Violent 
Femmes, Buffalo Tom, Black Uhuru, Taj 
Mahal and Synaesthesia. The day was not for 
the bands or the crew of UPC who set up the 
concert, it was for the students of UMass. 

For the security and stage crew, the pro- 
duction process started about four days be- 
fore the concert. From that Thursday until 
the moment the first band hit the stage, the 
UPC crews put up fencing, carried pieces of 
steel and aluminum to build the stage with, 
and stayed long hours helping to get every- 
thing ready. 

It rained the morning of the concert and 
it wasn't as warm as Maui, which caused the 
hard-working UPC staff to worry about the 
attendance. At about 1 1 :00 a.m., Synaesthesia 
went on with their mix of funk, jazz, and 
rock. They satisfied the small crowd and 
eventually, people began to flock to the pond 
in droves to dance and have a good time. 
They played for at least an hour to everyone's 
joy, especially the contingent from 

Taj Mahal took to the stage soon after. 
He didn't play the blues, because blues is 
something you feel. He was the blues. Taj, a 
UMass alumnus, drew an even larger crowd 
that eventually (continued on p. 200)

Taj played for another hour while the crowd 
grooved to the blues. Taj Mahal was wel- 
comed back later in the concert when he did 
an impromptu jam with the Violent Femmes 
that will go down in the history books as one 
of the finest musical moments at UMass. 

Buffalo Tom, also UMass alumni, took to 
the stage. Buffalo Tom rocked the crowd and 
many people said that they were the best 
they heard at Spring Concert. They opened 
with "Birdbrain" an older song off their first 
album. During a short respite, Buffalo Tom's 
lead singer Bill Janovitz told the crowd how 
the band formed up at the Top of the Campus 
Lounge here on campus. Unfortunately, Bill 
Janovitz lost his voice during their perfor- 
mance and had to cut his portion of the show 
a little short, much to the dismay of the 

The next to step up into the limelight at 
Spring Concert was the reggae band Black 
Uhuru. They brought warm tunes and beats 
to the now wet and muddy crowd, transport- 
ing the crowd to a warm Caribbean Island. 
Black Uhuru drew the entire ocean of stu- 
dents into their festive spirited music and 
made the drear of the day fade away. 

It was at about this time that the mud bog 
wrestling began. People decided to make the 
nice lawn look like the Mullins Center dur- 
ing a monster truck show. All were wet and 
muddy, but at least a good time was had. 

For the concert's Grand Finally, the Vio- 
lent Femmes jumped up on stage. They per- 
formed a range of their music from their long 
career. They played favorite old songs like, 
"Add it up" and "Blister in the Sun" with a 
few of their new songs from the up-and- 
coming album. The crowd erupted as the 
band played on in the mist and mud. Crowd 
surfing was at a new all time high and in 
combination with the incredible jams, the 
muddy and wet students were in bliss. 

By dark everyone was out of the concert 
area and at their respective parties, remem- 
bering our own version of the muddy

Olympic Drama 

Those eagerly awaiting the 1994 Winter 
Olympics were shocked on January 6, 1 994, upon 
hearing that American ice skating hopeful Nancy 
Kerrigan had been clubbed in the knee by three 
men while practicing at Detroit's Cobo Arena. 

The 24-year-old 1992 bronze medalist from 
Stoneham, Massachusetts was shown on national 
television crying "Why me?" and clutching her 
wounded knee later that afternoon. At the time, 
there were no named suspects in the attack. 

Because of her injury, Kerrigan was unable 
to compete in the pre-Olympic nationals that 
weekend, but after some deliberation was named 
to the U.S. team by the U.S. Figure Skating 
Association. Also named to the team was U.S. 
National Championship winner Tonya Harding. 
Kerrigan, meanwhile, made steady recovery on 
her injury and was back on the ice within two 

The rivalry between Kerrigan and Harding 
dated back to 1991, when Harding won the na- 
tional figure skating title over Kerrigan and Kristi 

This rivalry became more evident when, 
shortly before the Olympics in February, Harding 
came forward and admitted that she did know of 
the plot to attack Kerrigan, but didn't have any 
part in the plot. Despite this, she was permitted to 
compete in the Lillehammer Olympics. 

The Winter Olympic Games took place in 
Lillehammer, Norway this year. It was the most 
watched Winter Olympics in history, partly be- 
cause of the Harding-Kerrigan soap opera. No 
one will be able forget the emotion of Bonnie 
Blair's multi-victories, Dan Jantzen's victory lap 
with baby in hand, Tonya Harding's crying fit

Between 1932 and 1938 he made 84

That Was Cool 

They play frog baseball. They spend an

They're Beavis and Butt-head, MTV's duo 
of moronic, ambitionless cartoon adolescents, 
whose days revolve around sitting in front of the 
television rating music videos, in most cases 
saying "This sucks," or, if a video contains vio- 
lence, mutilation or destruction, saying "This is 
cool." Their show, featured every night at 7:00 
and 11:00, had young people all over America 
imitating their idiotic laughter. "Heh,heh. 
Huh.huh. Heh.heh." 

Not everybody was laughing, however, when 
last fall a five-year-old boy burned his house 
down and killed his two-year-old sister. His 
mother blamed the cartoon characters, whose 
chants of "Fire, fire, fire!" while playing with a 
cigarette lighter allegedly influenced her son to 
play with matches. As a result, Beavis and Butt- 
head were prohibited from making further refer- 
ences to fire, and the show was moved from 7:00 
to 10:30 p.m., allowing a full hour for the two to 
make rude noises and condemn anything useful 
or good in society. 

Despite its critics, "Beavis and Butt-head" 
continues to air on MTV. Many Americans,

to provide an hour of escape from any seriousness 
that society may impose on them.

Shake It Up Baby 

Millions of Californians awoke with a jolt 
around 4:3 1 on the morning of January 17, when 
an earthquake struck the Northridge area of the 
San Fernando Valley, 20 miles northwest of Los 

Over 60 people were killed, and vast amounts 
of damage occurred as a result of the quake, which 
measured 6.6 on the Richter scale. Among those 
killed were a 46-year-old police officer who lost 
control of his motorcycle and fell off a ramp that 
collapsed onto Interstate 5; several who died of 
heart attacks as a result of the quake; and over a 
dozen who died in an apartment building collapse 
in Northridge. Two people were also killed in a 
hillside home collapse in Sherman Oaks. 

Police and city authorities speculated that the 
death toll could have reached hundreds or even 
thousands had there been more people on the road 
when the quake struck. Due to the Martin Luther 
King holiday, however, few people were up at 
that early hour. 

The quake was not California's strongest in 
terms of numbers on a scale, but was by far the 
most destructive due to the high population den- 
sity of the area. Many highways were damaged, 
and repairs were estimated to take up a year. 
Many streets were flooded, and traffic lights were 
knocked out everywhere, resulting in many car 

Thousands of people were left homeless as 
their homes were destroyed by either fire or 
collapse. Many others who were lucky enough to 
have their homes still standing suffered the dam- 
age of valuable possessions. 

The last big earthquake to hit the area took 
place in June 1992, in nearby Landers, east of Los 
Angeles. The quake measured 7.5, and was fol- 
lowed several hours later by a 6.6 quake in the Big 
Bear area. California is home to many earth- 
quakes because it lies on the San Andreas Fault, 
where two continental plates meet and push against 
each other along the coast. 

Fans from coast to coast were shocked 
when, last Halloween, actor River Phoenix 
died of a cocaine and heroin overdose out- 
side the Viper Room in Los Angeles. The 23 
year-old accomplished actor began his rise 
to stardom in 1986 as the tough and trashy 
Chris Chambers in "Stand By Me". From 
there he portrayed a brutalized boy in "The 
Mosquito Coast" and won an Oscar nomina- 
tion for "Running on Empty", as the son of 
fugitive radicals in the 1960's. In "My Own 
Private Idaho" he professes his love to Keanu 
Reeves with complete conviction. Ironically, 
Phoenix's character in Idaho , a epileptic, who 
convulses and collapses in the streets, is a 
flinching reminder of his last moments on 
the sidewalk in front of the Viper Room. 

Cesar Chavez was a man with a mis- 
sion. He decided to set his people free. In- 
spired by Ghandhi, Chavez founded the 
United Farm Workers Commission and de- 
clared peaceful war on the corporate giants 
that dominated the Western farming world. 
He organized marches, staged strikes, and 
fasted; sometimes for as long as 25 days. He 
never cared about recognition, he just wanted 
small personal victories that would change 
the farming and migrant working conditions 
for the better. After his death at 66, the world 
honored a man who had put his life on the 
line in exchange for civil rights and respect 
for mankind.

Ballet. In 1961, he defected to the West and 
transformed the world's notion of the typical 
male soloist. He later became a permanent 
addition to Britain's Royal Ballet where his 
partners included Dame Margot Fonteyn. 
He was a man of immense grace, extreme 
talent, and became one of the greatest Rus- 
sian dancers of all time. He was the epitome

Raymond Burr, the slightly overweight and 
extremely convincing actor, died at the age 
of 76 in 1993. After Perry Mason, Burr went 
on to portray the wheelchair-bound detec- 
tive Robert T. Ironside. He was so convincing 
that he had to make public appearances to 
prove he could still walk. However, art be- 
came reality for Burr when kidney failure 
confined him to a wheelchair. Cancer was 
the one battle he couldn't win. 

In April of 1993 the opera world lost 
one of their greatest and most talented 
women. Marian Anderson's rise to the top 
began slowly. She was rejected by a music 
school, denied singing jobs, and couldn't get 
a hotel room in Atlantic City — even after she 
was awarded the key to the city. Her most 
memorable performance occurred in 1939 on 
the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, after the 
Daughters of the American revolution re- 
fused to let her sing in Constitution Hall. 
Anderson died at 96, and will be remem- 
bered as more than a sensational singer. She 
helped to give other African American 
women a role model. "You lose a lot of time 
hating people," she said. "Other Negroes 
will have the career I dreamed of." 

Rest Insured 

In September, President Clinton unveiled his 
long-awaited plan for universal health care. After 
extensive research on insurance costs and ben- 
efits, the White House task force, chaired by First 
Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, devised the health 
security plan. The proposal called for employers 
to pay 80 percent of their workers' average health- 
care premiums; the remainder would be paid by 
the employees. The plan would cost the federal 
government an extra $350 billion over the next 
five years. In order to fund the program, Clinton 
planned to hold down Medicaid and Medicare, 
boost cigarette taxes, and impose a special levy on 
corporations that set up their own health plans. 
While the national health care bill has received 
praise from many, it also faces widespread oppo- 
sition from Americans who fear that the plan will 
limit their freedom to choose which doctors they 
can use. Leading the opposition are Republican 
Senator Bob Dole of Kansas and conservative 
radio talk-jock Rush Limbaugh, who are both 
highly critical of the President's health plan. 



The Leader of 
the Pack 

Since leaving NBC to work for CBS, David 
tterman has become the new king of the late 
;ht. His new talk show, Late Show with David 
tterman, began the the war of the late night 
)ws, scheduled opposite the long-time favor- 
, The Tonight Show starring Jay Leno. CBS 
sily won Letterman over, outbidding NBC's 
'ered salary by millions, and rebuilt the old Ed 
llivan Theater on Broadway to accomodate 
tterman' s wishes to remain in New York, 
tterman' s wacky gimmicks and famous Top 
n lists have continued to boost his ratings 
stly, and the nightly reports from the Winter 
ympics by Dave's Mom, Dorothy Letterman, 
ly increased his popularity. 

Letterman, Leno, and NBC s Conan O'Brien 
ve been able to survive the ratings game — 
)se not faring as well include Chevy Chase, 
lose painfully lame talk show was cancelled by 
x after only six weeks, and Arsenio Hall, who 
lied it quits at the end of the season. 

The Unkindest Cut 

Men everywhere realized their most horrify- 
ing nightmare when they heard of Lorena Bobbitt, 
who made national headlines last June when she 
cut off her husband's penis after he allegedly 
raped her. 

Bobbitt, a 24-year-old manicurist, told po- 
lice that on the night of June 23rd, she was asleep 
in their Manassis.Virginia apartment when her 
husband, John, returned from a night of drinking 
with his friends. According to Lorena, her hus- 
band woke her up and forced her to have sex with 
him, despite her protests, then fell asleep. She 
went to the kitchen for a glass of water and spotted 
a kitchen knife, which she used to cut off her 
husband's penis as he slept. With the severed 
organ in her hand, she fled the apartment and 
drove off in her car, throwing the organ out the 
window into an empty lot. 

Lorena then called the police, who retrieved 
the organ. John, meanwhile, had rushed to a 
nearby hospital, where doctors reattached the 
organ in a nine-and-a -half hour operation. 

After the incident, Lorena Bobbitt told au- 
thorities that this was not the first time he had 
done this during their four-year marriage. She 
also said that he had hit her and verbally abused 
her in the past. John denied the allegations. 

John Bobbitt was charged with "marital sexual 
assault;" his wife, with "malicious wounding." In 
November, a jury of nine women and three men 
acquitted John Bobbitt of the marital sexual as- 
sault charge. In January, Lorena was found not 
guilty on the basis of insanity. She was, however, 
required to spend time in a psychiatric hospital. 

With the Bobbitt case came nationwide con- 
troversy. Many women claim that John Bobbitt 
got what he deserved, that Lorena' s only mistake 
was not completely destroying the organ. Many 
others, however, feel that there was no excuse for 
Lorena' s actions, that she had opportunities to 
leave the marriage if it was so bad. The case has 
also been subject to many jokes, such as a T-shirt 
reading "Manassis, Virginia — A Cut Above the 
Rest," and probably more than a few nightmares. 
Whatever your opinion, the Bobbitt case will 
certainly shed new light on the issue of marital 


On May 19, 1994, Jacqueline Bouvier 
Kennedy Onassis died in her New York City 
apartment. Outside her apartment people 
gathered to honor the memory of a remark- 
able lady. 

A First Lady, business woman, wife, 
mother, and grandmother, Jackie gave the 
United States a taste of elegance. During the 
time she was the First Lady, she brought 
style and taste to the White House so it 
would be a place of grace. During the time 
after JFK's death, she acted with a quiet sense 
of dignity that made the people of the United 
States feel strong. 

July found the Clintons mourning the 
death of attorney Vince Foster Jr. The 48 year 
old father of three was found dead on July 20, 
in a Virginia park. A Smith and Wesson .38 
lay beside the body. The exact reason for the 
suicide is unknown, although it is specu- 
lated that he may have been troubled and 
overwhelmed by his power. He and the presi- 
dent grew up together in Arkansas, and had 
been friends for over 40 years. 

This year, polio vaccine pioneer Albert 
Sabin passed on. Sabin worked for 24 years 
and in 1954 he patented a live-virus oral 
vaccine that ensured lifelong immunity. His 
vaccine replaced Jonas Salk's killed-virus 
version. Until his death at 86 Sabin and Salk 
were in constant competition for credit of the 
first polio vaccine. Neither man wanted any- 
thing more than to combat polio and receive 
lifelong honor as the creator of the vaccine. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers were shocked 
by the death of Hall of Fame Pitcher Don 
"Big D" Drysdale on July 2, 1993. Three 
times Drysdale led his league in strikeouts, 
and his lifetime ERA was a greedy 2.95. His 
career spanned 14 seasons, 5 World Series, 
and a world record for pitching 58 consecu- 
tive innings of scoreless ball that stood for 
two decades. 

John Wayne Gacy, one of America's 
all-time most notorious killers, was sentenced 
to die in 1994 in Illinois, where a death pen- 
alty had been enacted after he had killed 
twenty-one boys. 

The total number of those murdered by 
Gacy was thirty-three, all of them young 
boys. The murders were committed between 
1972 and 1978, when Gacy was arrested. In 
1980, he was convicted of the 33 murders in 
Chicago, more than any other criminal in 
U.S. history.

The 1994 Index was produced on a $70,000 budget. Yet, the price we offered to all subscribers was, in the words of many of them, 
"cheaper than a high school yearbook. " This was easily achieved through the outstanding support of the following Benefactors, Sponsors 
and Patrons. We thank you all very much for your generosity which made this production possible and so successful.

The road we traveled with our 51b. 
4oz. football has been soo long and 
far too short. Our lives, through 
yours, have been enriched on a 
level unreachable with words. 
Follow your heart to your dreams. 
Give of yourself, to yours, as you 
have received from yours and, as 
with you, the whole is more than a 
sum of the parts. 

We love you so much, 
Mom & Dad

= s the Spring Concert came 
and went, we were left with 
vivid memories. We will re- 
member this Spring Concert 
for the acres of mud; the body 
surfing; the great music, the 
thousands and thousands of 
students that seemed to form 
a single, solid mass. We were 
sprawled out on the ground; 
we rolled over and across the 
euphoric crowd throughout 
the show; we soaked in the 
melodies of Buffalo Tom, Taj 
Mahal and others, oblivious 
to the final exams which lin- 
gered only weeks away. We 
were happy, and droves of us, 
caked brown with mud, left 
the show, blind to the cool 
weather, drizzle, and mud 
under our feet.

ers will continue to take what 
they have learned in the build- 
ings named after fellow alumni 
and continue their academic ca- 
reers. UMass grads will continue 
the evolution some of them 
started as teen agers. Whether 
we move into professional posi- 
tions or begin graduate studies, 
our adaptation to our constantly 
changing world will be easy be- 
cause of everything UMass has 
taught us, inside and outside 
the classroom. On a campus

sands of professors, administra-

have been primed for life be- 
yond our UMass world.

New Beginnings

From The Editor 

Bear with me. Yesterday, I was at work. There I was, inspecting 
construction on Long Island's own Meadowbrook Parkway. From 
my idling car, I watched as the construction workers put out the 
cones for the very simple detour we were setting up for the day. My 
plans for this Friday were very simple. I was to work a full day and 
then trek up to UMass for one last time to finish the Index. Suddenly, 
smoke started billowing from under the hood of my car. I quickly 
pulled over only to find that my water pump had seized. This killed 
my day. How was I going to inspect construction? How was I going 
to make it up to Amherst? And how was I going to get my car off the 
Meadowbrook? Nobody told me there'd be days like these. I re- 
turned to work, walking the mile-long detour. 

Then, a glimmer of hope graced my hopelessness. I got a ride to an 
auto parts store and as luck would have it, (luck? what's that?) they 
had a water pump for a 1984 Subaru. As lunch approached, I headed 
toward my injured steed to install this gleaming, new $40 hydraulic 
motivator. When I arrived at milemarker 1078 where I had left it, I 
found that another challenge faced me. My right, rear tire had gone 
flat. This was it, I thought. I'd never get to Amherst. I'd have to drive 
home on a doughnut if I ever got it off the highway, get the tire fixed 
and then someday go up to Amherst to finish the Index. This book is 
never going to get done. 

First things first, I thought. So, I began ripping the wisdom tooth 
of a water pump out of my car. By the end of that hour, my vehicle 
was once again purring like a kitten and was being fully supported 
by its three good tires and one pseudo-tire. Now I could get back to 
work in my car, get the tire fixed at a local gas station after work and 
then head up to UMass to finish the Index. UMass was going to get 
its 304 page chronicle of the 1994 academic year! 

The end of this hot day seemed to come in no time. Making sure 
that rocks from the pavement cutter aren't flying into some unsus- 
pecting beach goer's convertible is a lot easier than dealing with car 
troubles. Then, as I came out of the gas station with my repaired 
better-than-new tire, I notice the puddle of anti-freeze originating at 
my car. I wasn't going anywhere. 

But wait! It wasn't a big problem at all. It was a simple hose clamp 
that I had forgotten to tighten. So, I put my tire on, tightened the 
clamp, grabbed an ice cream down the road and headed for UMass 
and I am now sitting next to Wendy who is trying to fit the Index of 
the Index on the last eight pages left to complete. The funniest part is 
that when I talked to my parents from Amherst, yesterday, it seemed 
as if all those problems had not shaved years off my life or even made 
my life less rewarding. In fact, I really felt good that after all that 
turmoil, all that delay, all that sweat and all those problems lurking 
around the superelevated curves of the Meadowbrook Parkway, my 
parents thought that my trip had been nothing short of a smooth ride. 

Now, assuming you're still reading this, let's talk about this year's 
Index. When we returned from our 1993 summer break, we were 
short approximately 2 out of 3 editors, we had no office manager, no 
theme and no direction. Basically, our water pump was as solid as 
dining common pizza. Eventually we got our act together. SGA gave 
us a ride to the store to get our new computer, and we started to create 
pages with a theme that easily launched us into the fast lane of 
yearbook production. Throughout the year, we had many flat tires of 
1993 books undelivered, student organizations who couldn't pro- 
duce articles or photos of themselves and the usual conflicts that pop 
up when people try to work with people. 

We eventually fixed it all, (sometimes riding on our doughnuts) 
and now I feel obligated to tell you, the reader, that what you are 
holding in your hands is not simply a finely polished, well oiled, 
smooth running publication that you can just thumb through to get 
a sense for what the 1994 student body of UMass was all about. 

Instead, I invite you to look carefully at each page. Sit in Bartlett 65 
and listen to a professor's lecture on the Equal Rights Amendment. 
Stare down a UMass athlete driving for your goal. Feel the pinch in 
your bum as you surf over the crowd at a UPC concert. Live the 
melancholy bliss of a UMass graduate at Alumni Stadium. 

And as you do, know that each page represents the blood, sweat 
and tears of 28 of the hardest working group of "mismatched kids" 
to ever roam the halls of the Student Union at 3:00 am. Know that 
Wendy and Sean were worrying if the Index would ever get done 
while many students worried about how they were going to finish 
their term papers in time for Beverly Hills 90210. To the entire 1994 
Index staff, my hat is off. Everyone did a great job and deserves a pat 
on the back. (Free tuition may be a start.) I invite all of you to take 
what you have learned with you. I think you'll find that a lot of it 
applies to the real world as well. 

There were, also some people who helped us out when we were 
low on fuel and needed a jump that I would like to thank. To 
Margaret, our advisor and Gloria, our graduate advisor, thanks for 
all the good advice and for teaching us how to scream and cry 
professionally. Thanks to Dave, no middle name, Roth, Sandy Roth 
and everyone at Walsworth for working so hard to improve the Index 
yet again and for helping us to transform our wild ideas into realities. 
To Neil, Amar and the rest of the DaVor family, thanks for all the 
photos, mailings and random acts of kindness. 

Monday, I will go back to work. I will return, not only knowing 
that the product of the 1 994 Index staff is finally complete but also that 
my car is running better than ever (knock wood.) I'll remember 
everything it took to recrop the photos and tighten the alternator belt, 
but it will all seem small compared to the satisfaction of being able 
to sit back and say that all of the perseverance and every ounce of 
energy expelled has paid off. It couldn't have been done without help 
and the same situations will never be repeated. As an Editor-in-Chief 
of the Index, one who was allowed to drive this bus, I wish future 
Index staffs to have the same year that we had. We were faced with 
stuff you can't make up, always bit off more than we could chew and 
never made one deadline completely. The product, though, is one 
that I feel represents UMass perfectly and looking at the library of 
yearbooks atop our filing cabinets, falls right in line with the Index's 
own Evolution.

Ode to the 1994 Index Staff 

-by Greg Zenon 

We had a lot of fun 

Getting everything done. 

From deciding on a theme 

To producing the book from a dream 

When our baby Mac went down 

We bought the best PowerPC in town. 

With Scott at the helm as our E-I-C 

He made the Evolution we couldn't help but see. 

And organized the staff all year long 

From computers to layout, his leadership strong. 

In the fall we had Sue, and "Greek" writer Marjorie. 
Collegian Matt and Aram also shot photography. 
Kerry worked PageMaker like the back of her hand 
And Catherine, Troy, Michelle, and Lev all joined the band. 

Wendy worked real hard — she managed production crew. 
They retaliated, called their lawyers, threatening to sue. 
She cracked a whip and everyone with deadlines jumped. 
And looked away and did not mind 

when copy bunnies thumped. 

At every weekly meeting agendas were made 
Though our life and job, this is largely unpaid. 
Our classes suffered because we never went. 
Though our parents' tuition money was spent 

Dan's and Mel's office hours were held in the campus bar. 
So we knew marketing revenue never went far. 
But Marketing Mel showed off what she's got — 
Parent ad contributions were by everyone bought. 

Enthusiastic team spirit keyed Marc's Copy success. 
Never cynical or negative or feeling anything less 
Than love and devotion at his Manager's sight. 
He bubbled over with cheer — yeah, sure, whatever, right. 

Mike was a tall part of a marketing mecca, 
Sales skyrocketed, thanks much to Becca. 
While Utah Andy penned folios five, 
Office "MLE" kept 304 Student Union alive. 

Sean tackled the layouts and tried so much more, 
Some felt he went too far and sometimes got sore. 
His speed and planning made the other editors look slow, 
That's all right, he's young, his mind will surely blow. 

While Em flew away with the Minuteman team, 

Joe shot photos and quelled an Executive scream. 

But Em's Index shots made the papers and press 

And her quality photos were worth the waiting and stress. 

\wi& if ■• ■ — ^■-t'liiiW inn — -^-^-'tTi-i'niirfniii nn'ii i'" 


Anita's "Just Added" stories were all over the place 
And Kool Kristen's articles graced the rest of the space 
The Hill Giant's dedication gave editors a rest. 
Her "I" -twin's stellar copy makes the book a seller best 

And as I come to a close, I'm all out of rhymes, 
So, as far as Business this year — 

well, it's committed no crimes.

What exactly is the Index? The Index is several things. It is a 
bunch of mismatched kids trying to get through college who have 
time to publish a 300 page book; it is an attempt to capture the life 
and essence of a year at UMass; it' s fun and full of life; it' s a book 
that can transport the reader back months, years, even centuries. 
The Index is produced by a dedicated staff of about 20 that comes 
from every corner of this University. It's open to any and all that 
want to devote blood, sweat, and tears into producing one of the 
best college yearbooks in the country. As an outsider looking in, 
it might look peculiar to see a Chemistry major in charge of 
production and the creativity of the book. It might look strange to 
see the Editor-in-Chief is in the very conservative and linear 
major of Engineering. It may also seem strange to find out that the 
Layout Editor, who creatively designs the pages, was a Physics 
major (we saved him though — he is now a Graphic Design 
major). We have an English/Journalism major who is in charge 
of our business (once charged by another group for embezzle- 
ment) and a Psychology /Sociology major who markets the book 
successfully. The Photography Editor who captures the life and 
essence of UMass on film, is a Theater/Creative Writing major. 
As anyone can see, the Index is an opportunity for everyone to 
branch outside of their everyday norms. It' s a chance for the Math 
major to become an acclaimed journalist. It's the chance for the 
Art major to become a business entrepreneur. This book gives 
many people a break from the monotony of their majors, and a 
chance to do something totally different from what they are 
required to day after day. 

The Index staff s purpose is to publish a book that represents not 
only the big stories of the of a year, but the less noticed things that 
happen, too. We strive to capture the good times, the bad times, 
the happy times, the sad times, the victories, the defeats, the 
controversies, the resolutions, and everything in between. UMass 
is an exciting and mystical little world within itself and it's the 
Index strives throughout the year to present it to the reader so that 
it may seem that the life and energy of UMass springs out from 
between the covers every time the book is opened. 
The most important thing that the Index does is capture the year 
in words and pictures for generations to come. As we began this 
volume, we looked back over 100 years to see a UMass that has 
only been seen by a few. We had the opportunity to see faces that 
would not recognize this miniature metropolis of today. We were 
able to track not only the lives of the students that developed their 
minds with education here, but we were able to see the small 
farming college develop into a university known for its superb 
athletics, state-of-the-art research facilities, and excellent aca- 

We were transported back in time through the efforts of previous 
Index staffs. And it is our goal to be the eyes and ears of today for 
the future, to show the progression and evolution of UMass. 
It wasn't easy, and at times it was nothing but hard work. There 
were times when we slept in the office, and times when we 
engaged in raucous fun. It became the center point in our lives at 
times, and at other times, nothing but a nagging pain. After all the 
ups and downs though, we have a 300 page book in our hands that 
will survive generations to come, that will bring back all the 
memories of UMass, and that will provide some future staff the 
opportunity to see UMass as it changed before our eyes.
