Dear Class of 2004, 

You may not be able to see me, but I am standing and giving each of you a 
standing ovation. The clapping of my hands is to recognize your achievements 
and successes at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. You have excelled 
in the classroom, participated in research, pulled all-nighters, attended candle- 
light vigils, played intramural or intercollegate athletics, wrote for the Daily 
Collegian or took photos for the Index Yearbook, spent a semester abroad, 
learned the fight song "GO MASS", pledged Greek life, joined a student orga- 
nization, you experienced a different culture, volunteered for community ser- 
vice participated in a rally, took in a play or opera at the Fine Arts Center, 
played in the band, had an internship, and voted in campus elections. The list is 
endless! *A 

You have left an impression upon me that will be firmly planted in my head, 
body, and soul. I am touched by your willingness to accept our common 
ground and respect our differences. I am touched by your willingness to learn 
and teach. I am touched by your ability to make good judgments. I am 
touched by your humbleness. I am touched by your teamwork and personal 
integrity. Your compassion, consideration, and kindness touch me. I am 
touched by your commitment to make the University of Massachusetts 
Amherst a better community. 

It has often been said that the four years you spend on a college campus are the 
best four years of your life. My wish for you is that the four years you have 
spent on the Amherst campus prepares you for the next best four years of your 
life. 

It is possible that the greatest gift a college education can give are those which 
can't be read. Or written. Or touched. Hopefully, what a college education has 
providied is a richness of life. I have a feeling you are all very rich! 

Congratulations, I am proud to call you alumni of the University of Massachu- 
setts Amherst and please know you have a standing invitation to come visit us. 
We are very proud of you. GO MASS ! 

Sincerely, 

Michael Gargano, ED.D 

Vice Chancellor for the Student Affairs and Campus Life

were also outstanding, proving to be great additions to the team. Men's basketball

SkiiNg 



UMASS skiing had an excellent 
2003-04 season under first year 
coach Ken Thoman. Former member 
of the Minutemen skiers, Thoman 
took over for very successful ski 
coach Igor Vanovac. Freshman 
Rush Hawkins proved to be one of 
the strongest competitors, winning 
almost every race in which he 
participated and ranking number one 
in the Eastern Collegiate Ski 
Conference. Other outstanding 
skiers this season were Senior 
captain David Pomeroy and Sopho- 
more Pat Bachant. At Waterville 
Valley, New Hampshire, the 
Minutemmen had their best perfor- 
mance, placing first out of sixteen 
teams at the USCSA Eastern 
Regionals. At the USCSA Nationals 
at Sugarloaf Mountain in 
Carrabassett Valley, Maine, both 
Hawkins and Pomeroy were named 
first team All-America selection in 
the Giant Slalom. 





The Minutewomcn skiers were 
outstanding this winter with the help 
of first season coach Ken Thoman. 
Some great competitors in women's 
skiing this year were freshman 
Ashley Maxfield, sophomore Caitlin 
Doughty and Shaleighne Collins, 
also a sophomore. Thanks to some 
great performances and many first 
places, the team ranked fifth place at 
the USCSA Eastern Regionals in 
Waterville Valley, New Hampshire. 
The Minutewomen also performed 
well at national level, ending the 
season ranking third out of eighteen 
teams at the USCSA Nationals 
competition.

ROBIN, 

Life stretching out before you 
brims with exciting opportu- 
nities, tantalizing possibilities. 
Take your time, make good 
choices, but most of all be 
sure to do what you love, as 
Joseph Campbell said, follow 
your bliss, because you only go around once, as 
best we can figure, that is. Continue to believe 
in yourself and trust in your dreams because 
your instincts are sound and sure, as your heart is 
forever and pure. 
You have been a 
blessing in our lives. 
Love Mom & 
Dad, David & 
Laura (& Elfie)

Terrorism was a constant threat worldwide. 
Bombings occurred in several Muslim 
nations with western ties. Flights into the 
U.S. were periodically canceled. Equipment 
was installed at airports to conduct instant 
background checks on visitors to the U.S. 




Plans are in place for new construction on 
the site of the World Trade Center, which 
was destroyed on 9/1 1 . If built, the Freedom 
Tower will reach 1 ,776 feet and become the 
tallest building in the world. 



Concerns remained about the development 
of nuclear weapons by Iran and North Korea. 
However, Libya agreed to dismantle its 
nuclear program. 






In January, a dangerous cold spell gripped the 
Northeast. The high demand for electricity 
led utility companies to warn residents of 
possible rolling blackouts. 



A European heat wave killed more than 
14,000 people in late summer. As illness 
and deaths increased, a crisis developed 
at French hospitals and funeral homes. 
French citizens were angered by the slow 
government response.

We found him! After eight months of 
searching, soldiers of the U.S. Army's 4th 
Infantry Division captured Saddam Hussein, 
former Iraqi dictator. Meanwhile, fighting 
continued between insurgents and coalition 
forces as it had since the fall of Iraq in 
April 2003. 





A late December earthquake killed at least
