Welcome! 

Let us Celebrate 

The Best of U! 



Dear 2005 Graduates, 

You made it! Vou have graduated! Did the years fly by fast for you \kt 
everyone said that they would? Congratulations on your hard work and sur- 
vival skills. Many have tried but not everyone has achieved what you all have, 
so hold your heads up high and say in a proud voice, "I am a UMass Amherst 
GraduateF' 

Another year, another yearbook, but this one is different, yes Jt's VlrY 
different! Tliis year instead of adhering to the "traditional" yearbook look, we 
here at the Index have decided to add some style. The theme of this yearbook 
is 'The Best of U" meaning the best of UMass Amherst and the best of YOU. 

\Vho am I? \Vell, my name is Maxine Crawford the editor of the Index 
Yearbook. 

Like you, this too is my last year at fair UMass Amherst. One of the 
challenges that a yearbook has when aeating a book of memories for a cam- 
pus as huge as UMass Amherst is trying to incorporate everyone's experience 
and memories into 200+ pages, but we tried our hardest to find some pictures 
and events that might cause you to reminisce. For example, you may not have 
attended the big 80's party that the ^Student Activities Center threw, but by look- 
ing at those pictures and seeing the many costumes might cause you to remem- 
ber that day that you and your friends went to DIVA's 80's night or the night 
that you all decided to dress up in 80's clothes for the fun of it. Hopefully the 
pictures of the landscape will remind you of those times you and your friends 
decided to hang out after class or those days that you actually stopped, looked 
around, and enjoyed the beautiful spots on this campus. 

These are your memories, enjoy them. 



Con Amor, 

Maxamillion-vShell Crawford

First Week 



Remember the first day of class after your first-year? Now 
you know where all of your classes are, although with all 
of the construction happening on campus, you aren't sure 
how you will get to your classes. You became a senior 
this semester and what was the first thing you complained 
about? Probably those "'dam freshmen." 
Well here is a celebration that was created to celebrate you 
and all of your loveliness. Welcome Back Week 2004. This 
week was filled with games, rides, trips to late night mall 
sales, and free food and giveaways.

It's the time when parents come to check on their babies. 
The time when the university's campus is scrutinized thor- 
oughly and college students hide their embarassing pictures, 
bottles, and in some cases their friend with priviledges. 
Most students looked happy to be able to see their families, 
while others looked anxious, "will they notice the change 
in me?"

IT'S THE REASON WHY YOU ATTENDED UMASS AMHERST THE 

REASON WHY YOU OR YOUR FAMILY WORKED HARD TO AFFORD 

THE TUITION IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN YOUR NUMBER ONE PRIORITY 

YES THAT'S RI6HT.ACADEMICS! THE FOLLOWING PACES ARE 

DEDICATED TO ACADEMICS AND THE STUDENTS WE CAUCHT 

STUDYING. 





You KNOW HOW IT STARTS. FIRST YOU BEGN TO NOTICE HOW 

COMFORTABLE THE SEAT FEELS...WHICH IS ODD FOR MOST OF THE 

CHAIRS AT UMASS AMHERST THEN, YOUR BODY BE6INS TO RELAX 

AND YOUR BREATHIN6 STARTS TO SLOW DOWN YOUR EYES BEGN 

TO DROOP AND YOU START DREAMIN6. YOU ARE ASLEEP IN CLASS, 

AND YOU DON'T CARE...UNTIL A PROFESSOR WAKES YOU UP OR YOU 

ALMOST FALL OUT OF YOUR CHAIR BECAUSE YOUR HEAD FELL BACK 

TOO HARD AND LET'S NOT TALK ABOUT THE DROOL.

IT IS OFTEN HARP TO BE DISCIPLINED IN A COLLEGE SETTING ESPEICALLY 
WHEN YOU DON'T HAVE PARENTS OR TEACHERS THERE TO FORCE 
YOU TO DO YOUR WORK BUT IT IS POSSIBLE YOU PROBABLY HAD 
TO TURN OFF YOUR AOL INSTANT MESSENGER, YOUR CELL PHONE, 

AND YOUR TWO-WAY PACER. ONCE YOU SHUT YOURSELF OFF FROM 

THE WORLD, YOU HAD TO BLOCK ALL OF THOSE TEMPTATIONS 

TO WATCH REALITY TV. BUT IT ALL PAID OFF RIGHT? YOU'RE A 

GRADUATE NOW AND YOU HAVE ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD 

TO PLAY...AFTER WORK...THAT IS IF YOU DECIDED NOT TO GO TO 

GRADUATE SCHOOL. 

17 




ONE THIN6 YOU PROBABLY WON'T MISS ABOUT COLLE6E IS THE ALL 

NI6HTERS! PUSHIN6 YOUR BODY TO STAY UP FOR 2 DAYS STRAIGHT 

JUST SO YOU COULD CET THAT PAPER DONE THAT SHOULD HAVE 

BEEN FINISHED 2 DAYS ACO. DO YOU REMEMBER HOW FUNNY 

EVERYTHIN6 WAS AND HOW FAST PEOPLE TALKED WHILE YOU WERE 

SLEEP DEPRIVED? DO YOU REMEMBER ALL THE FUN YOU HAD WHEN 

YOU AND A CROUP OF FRIENDS WERE SLEEP DEPRIVED TOCETHER?

Some of you were lucky to find 
a professor that every now and 
then made you laugh until you ^ 
almost fell out of your chair! On 
this page, we celebrate the funny 
quotes that we collected from 
UMass Students about their 
professors. 

And the yearbook award for the 
funniest Professor's quote: 



1) (said wth a very serious 
face) "Does anyone else have 
anything to say? I just shot 
my load." 



Can everyone see why this one 
is number 1?? 




91 



^^Of^ 





2) "I won't laugh at your answers, I 
promise. Ok, I only did it once, but the 

student was really stupid." 

Professor Chandler 



3) "Don't fall asleep in the front row. I 
can't handle that kind of rejection." 
Professor Tager 



4) "Jenner is the thing doing the action and 
Ben is the one receiving the action.. .&od that 

sounds bad." 

Professor Klement 



5) "You may think I'm obessed with my daugh- 
ter's sled but I'm not. I just use it a lot be- 
cause she's pissed at me for stealing it." 
Professor Trip 





Everyone has a day where they just don't 
want to do their homework. It might be j 
too nice outside so you go for a run or I 
maybe you've been distracted by the ■ 
internet. Here are the Top 5 things 
UMass students do to procrastinate: 

1) Instant Messenger. You IM or check 
everyone's away message, everyone 
on your buddy list, regardless if you 
haven't talked to them in years. 

2) Visit your friends in their rooms. It 
doesn't matter if they live down the 
hall or on the other side of campus, 
you're going to drop by to "Hi". 

3) Facebook. The Facebook 
epidemic has swept across campuses 
nationwide. Students can randomly 
poke, message, or friend people 
they know or think they know. Come 
on, every one of us has receded a 
friend request from someone 
we've never heard of before in our 
lives and accepted it. 




H^aus>/o 




how long you intend to rest. 



wasted two hours. Your nap was 
truly a success. 

[ 

5) Cleaning. Some people ra- 
tionalize that they need a clean 
environment to do their home- 
work. Others just openly admit 
that their popper isn't as excit- 
ing as the prospect of doing the 
pile of laundry that's been sitting 
for weeks in their closet. Perhaps 
after your room is sparkling you'll 
finally start that ten page paper 
due in eight hours. 



It doesn't matter what you do, 

as long as you're not doing your 

homework. You can take a few 

minutes to grab a bite to eat, nap, or 

take a canoe ride around the Campus 

Pond. Hey, it beats doing homework. 




When your stomach was grumbling and 
your blood sugar was low. When you 
went to your refrigerator and realized 
that you don't have any grub.. .who did 
you call to fill your belly? 

Here we salute the top 5 restaurants 
that students love to eat. 

1) Antonio's. This place is always 
packed with students, whether it's 
1 p.m. or a.m. Students can choose 
from chicken parm, tortellini, or 
buffalo chicken pizza, just to 
name a few. But no matter what 
craving you have, you can find it 
at Antonio's. 

2) Wings. From their very clever 
number 549- WING to their very 
tasty boneless wings with so 
many choices for sauces. Want 
them spicy? They have it. Want 
them barbecued? They have it. 
All you have to do is call and 
wait for the delivery guy to 
show up at your door. 







3.) D.P.Dough. Located conveniently 

in downtown Amherst it's just a 

, short walk from campus. But for 

those of you that prefer your food 

to be brought to you, they deliver 

too. Their menu is filled with every 

type of calzone you could possibly 

, think of. And if you want a calzone 

that isn't on the menu, you can make 

your own! 

4.) Bueno y Sano. Got a craving 

for some Mexican food? Set your 

burrito fix here. Their menu also 

offers everything from quesadillas to 

l^acos to nachos. If it's fAexican, and 

you want it, you have to go to Bueno 

y Sano. 



5.) Pinnochios. OK, so it's 1 am and you 
need some food. Now. Dial Pinnochios 
for some pizza, calzones, chicken fingers, 
or subs. It'll be brought to your door in 
no time. But they're not just a take-out 
restaurant. If you're looking for a classy 
place to go out to dinner ,stop 
by Pinnochios in Amherst Center.

WHEN THAT PROFESSOR DIDN't GR^E YOU THE GRADE THAT YOU WANTED IN THHRl

;Y0U KNOW THE SOUND AS IT COMES .\ROUKD THE CORNER. Y( )L' 
row THAT IT WTLL STOP AT 3:54 IN FRONT OF HaSBRUCK. Yol 
low THAT IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET A SEAT ON A RAINY DAY 

AT ABOUT 4pm. AnD YOU KNOW WHAT I'u TALKING ABOUT, 

THE PVTA Bus. It'll take you across campus, into town', 

OR BACK TO your .APARTMENT. EVERY STUDENT HAS A PILE OF 
SCHEDULES SrOCKPtt£D IN THHR ROOM FOR THOSE EMERGENCIES, 
UKE you're out of FOOD OR NEED TO CATCH A MOVIE. 

But not £\/eryone rides the bus. Bikes are also a popular 

^METHOD OF TRANSPORTATION, AS LONG AS YOU EON't MIND 
jBREAKING A UTTLE SWEAT. ThE LMaSS BIKE Co-OP IN THE 

[Student union is a great place to hnally have that prob- 

IlEM with your BRAKES FIX. ThEN YOU WON't HAVE TO WORRY 

'ut crashing into any more students while you ride to 
our classes. 

Walking is by far the most popular iviethod of transporta- 
««^TioN HERE. Whether you're whghted down from carrying 

YOUR BOOKS IN BETttTEEN CLASSES OR STUJvlBLIN'G HOME AFTER 

T Friday night party, the method of choice is your feet.

. Some look at vs and say that we don't have any TRADmoNS. That's 

NOT TRUE. We have TRADITIONS BUT THEY AREN't THE TiT'ICAL COLLEGE 

ATRADmoNS. Each indrtdual student has his or her own tradition 

-THAT WORKS WELL WTIH THEIR UFESTYLE AND THEIR GROUP OF FRIENDS. FOR 
'INSTANCE, A STUDENT WHO LOVES ANIME MIGHT HAVE A TRADITION OF MEETI.Vi 

'»UP WITH THHR CREW AND WATCHING SOME ANIME MOVIES ONCE A WEEK, WHIIJ 
■AN athlete's TRADITION MIGHT BE MEETING UP WTIH THEIR TEAMMATES AND 
;PLAYING SPORTS OUTSIDE OF THEIR SPECIALTY. SOME STUDENTS CHOSE TO HIT L I 
ItHE LOCAL BARS, WHILE OTHERS CHOSE SOME ARTSY GALLERY TO CHILL. WhEV 

■the weather begiins to warm up, you can always find students sunbati i- 
jlng anywhere there is a lawn, whether on or off-campus. 

pne of the traditions in the picture is the advertising boards in the 
Student Union. If you notice, if there isn't any room on the board, 
students just choose to place their fliers on top of the other fliers, li 
yov never seen one of these boards...oonsider yourself lucky.

All Over 
Campus 



Every student has his or her own 
individual style and flair that con- 
tributes to the UMASS Campus. 
All over campus there are activities| 
to appeal to each student. What do 




70 




Where do U live on campus? The five residential areas on campus are 
Southwest. Central, Orchard Hill, Sylvan, and Northeast. Each area has 
its own personal feel and unique style that is reflected by the students that 
live there. If you're looking for an urban feel, ti^ living in Southwest. Is 
live music more of your thing? Then I definitely suggest Central. Within 
each area there are also numerous floor and living options such as a 
Learning Community, Wellness Floor, TAP and RAP Floors. Whatever 
your personality is you're bound to find a residential area that fits you 
perfectly. 




All over campus students are studying, running to 
lecture, eating at the DC, and having a good time. 
To the left a student receives a free massage at Ten- 
sion Breakers in an effort to relive some of the stress 
from Finals. Above the Minuteman does push-ups 
with the cheerleaders after the football team scores 
a touchdown.

The best way to sled on a lunch tray depends upon your 

own personal style. But first check the conditions before 

you take your tray to the hill. Packed snow works far 

better than powdery snow; you'll go faster and for a 

longer run. Some ways work better than others; it all 

depends upon the student. 




Snowed In: 
Snow Day 



Winter '05 

It was official. The UMASS web- 
site announced that the school was 
shut down until the following day. 
No classes. No work. No library. 
What was a student to do? 




a 



1 



Some people prefer to grip the sides of the tray 
and elevate their legs in front of their body. Oth- 
ers like to tuck their legs underneath their bod- 
ies. Just take a run and see what position works 
best for you. Soon enough you'll be sledding on 
even the Steepest hills without any problems. 



72 



This day wasn't about staying inside and catching up on homeworlc and 

readings. This day was about going out and having fun. Students could be 

seen all over campus playing in the fresh snow all day. You had the rest of 

the week to worry about lecture notes and projects, today was a day to cut 

loose. 



With new snow covering the campus grounds, hordes of students set off to 
go skiing, sledding, snowboarding, and to do anything other than home- 
work. There were groups of skiers coming through the woods, in front 
of the observatory, and jumping over the Worcester path. They had built 
a large jump at the base of the hill that enabled them to clear the path. 
Onlookers watched as the students cleared the path and skied on, towards 
Hasbrouck. "I hadn't seen anything like that. ..ever! I was so sure one of 
them wasn't going to clear the jump and break something," Dickinson 
resident. 





By noon Orchard Hill was filled with students taking advantage of the day 
off. Students from all over campus came to sled on the hill behind Baker, 
in Central. Students had an array of items to go down the hill that ranged 
from sleds to plastic snowboards to lunch trays and even an inflatable mat- 
tress. Unfortunately, the mattress deflated right before its maiden voyage 
down the hill. Sleds had sold out earlier in the season so a few students 
traveled to local stores and purchased inflatable pool floats. Others opted 
for the cheaper option and took lunch trays from the Dining Commons. 
But it didn't matter what you went down the hill on, it was all about how 
you got down. Students had constructed a jump at the base of hill which 
everyone was going off of, but no one could land. 



73 




Once the 
homework 
is done. 



OK, so if you did your homework, 
then you needed to figure out how 
to blow off some steam. Maybe the 
Monkey Bar or another club met 
your fancy, but we decided to in- 
clude some on-campus activities. 




From smell tests to arts and crafts, UMass 
students in these pictures kept themselves enter- 
tained. Some of them even decided to treat local 
kids to a Halloween treat..

Mission Improvable performed 
a half hour show on the Student 
Union Steps for the crowds at Par- 
ents" Weekend. Volunteers from 
the crowd also tried their hand at 
improvisation. Also, students in 
the fall and spring months relax in 
the sun in between classes. 




You never know what you're going 
to see or hear on the lawn. Amidst 
the cattle call for class you can find 
game exhibitions, local radio sta- 
tions, protests, and even the occa- 
sional student studying. 



COSMO Girl! Stopped by the UN^SS Campus 
in October to promote their mag^ine and 
Neutrogena. UMASS was rated one of tnsir Top 
50 schools on the United States. The gave a 

free skin care consultations, magazines, and" 
Neutrogena products to the students who stopped 

at their tent.

No matter how much students gripe 
about this school, you can always 
find happy people on campus. Per-

extremely optimistic, or because 
we live in the "Happy Valley."

If you were into exercising, you probably 

utilized the Totman and Boyden Gyms as 

well as Intramural Sports Teams that played 

all semester long. At the gym you probably 

made use of the tennis courts and swimming 

pool as well as the weight rooms. Don't 

forget the basketball courts scattered all over / 

campus, where in between classes you could ^ 

play a quick game. All of these activities 

helped to release stress while giving you 

a complete workout while helping to keep

Suffering from puffy eyes in the 

morning due to the all-nighters you've 

been pulling recently? 

Keep a spoon in your freezer, so it's 

always cold. When you wake up in 

the morning apply the spoon for a few 

minutes then take a look in the miiTor. 

Goodbye puffy eyes. Hello beautiful, 

youthful eyes. 

Check your posture. Make sure 
you're standing with your back 
straight. Slouching can make you ap- 
pear tired. Standing tall will always 
give the people you meet a strong 
perception of you. 

COSMO Girl! Came to campus and

care. Always wear sunblock, a mini-

Having trouble relaxing because you 
are so stressed out? Turn on soine 
soothing music and just lay down and 
listen to it. Forget about work, school, 
and exams for thirty minutes. If that 
doesn't work go out with your friends 
and have a good time. Bring back 
your laugh and beautiful smile. Just 
have a goof time for an evening and 
when you get back to your schoolwork 
you'll be able to focus more clearly. 



Sleep at a minimum of seven h~ouTs a night. Buttermilk-, 
Yogurt, and Cream can be utilized as facial cleansers. In case you 
Forgot to go shopping. 



Go for a mn, bike ride, or ice skating. Laugh. These activities will leave you with a healthy red glow 
on your cheeks. It' s time to get ride of the pale skin color you've got from staying inside and studying 
all the time. Also these activities will release endorphins, making you ahappier, healthier student. 

Go for a massage and get rid for all your stress. No student wants to have worry lines 
around their eyes and forehead by the time he or she graduates. You're too young for that!

whether you consider yourself to be a preppy, a 
hippie, or you just don't care about fashion, 

UMass Amherst has a plethora of students who 
through their fashion decorate this campus. 

So if you get your fashion from magazines like 
People, the movies, what you find on your floor, 

or through stalking Jennifer Aniston just to 

see what she's wearing, just remember that the^ 

"sniff" test is the grossest thing in the world. 

You know that test, the one where you smell 

your clothes and the one that is less offensive is 

the one that you wear for the day. 

Whether you use this campus as your personal 

runway, walk through it with your head down, 

or with a facial expression that screams, "I wear 

what I wear when I want to wear it," work those 

clothes!! It's not the clothes that make the man 

(or the woman) it's the man (or the woman) 

that makes the clothes!!!

For some fashion is functional. You wear cute 
sweaters and knitted mittens in the winter and 
colorful skirts and tube tops in the summer. 
But other students refuse to allow the weather 
to dictate their fashion. These students wear 
shorts in the dead of winter. They wear six 
inch heels when walking to class. Ugg boots 
are worn during the summer months when 
you know their feet must be sweating to death 
inside. These fearless students will not be 
stopped by anything. They will wear what fash- 
ions they want to, regardless of the elements.

Hundreds of students packed themselves into The 
Cage to hear one man speak. Anticipation buzzed 
through the air before he came on stage. They came 
to hear what he had to say on the rights of African 
Americans and other minorities in the United 
States. Students wanted to know what inspired him 
to create movies hke Malcolm X. They wanted 
to know how he rose from poverty to became an 
amazingly successful artist whose cinematic works 
are known by millions around the world. They 
wanted to know Spike Lee. 

The focus of his one hour speech was his portrayal 
of life as an African American in an impoverished 
neighborhood though film. He talked about his ex- 
periences as a film student at NYU and the process 
in which he made each film. 

Afterwards he opened up the floor for questions. 
Students from the Five Colleges all formed a line 
and patiently waited to hear the prophetic words 
from Spike Lee's mouth. One student raised a ques- 
tion about Native Americans and Asians in film, 
and how Spike felt about the negative portrayal of 
these ethnic groups. Another student approached 
the microphone and professed his undying love 
and adoration for both Spike Lee and his films. 
He responded by asking him to approach the stage 
where he gave the student a warm embrace. 

Following the question and answer period there 
was a brief photo session. Students could receive 
autographs and pictures with Spike Lee. Numerous 
people took advantage of this time and received a 
photograph with him; from a distance it looked 
as if Spike Lee had been consumed by a mob of 
adoring fans.

first annual dance makes a splash at 
UMass, participants are forever changed 



In celebration of Black History Month, the Student 
Activities Center and Student Affairs sponsored the 
first annual Harlem Renaissance Ball. 

Participants of this event, dressed to impressed! 
The only thing this event was missing was a red 
carpet and photographers snapping pictures of the 
attendees. Trust us. it was Oscars Night at UMass 
with people wearing clothes from Filenes, Lord and 
Taylors, Lane Bryant, Tellos, JC Penny, etc. There 
were even some people dressed in the clothes of 
the Harlem Renaissance Period. 

Although it was on a three day weekend, UMass 
Amherst's first annual Harlem Renaissance was a 
night filled with romance, music, food, great com- 
pany. Participants in this event included Chancellor 
Lombardi, staff/faculty members, and students. 



The night included a speculator band with a singer 
with golden vocal chords. 

After the success of this event, promises that the 
next Harlem Renaissance will be even more spec- 
tacular were circulating through out the event. So 
even as alumni, keep your ears open because trust 
us, this event is worth the money

American Idol when Ford's Focus Talent Drive 
planted their trucks on our campus. Students were 
tempted with a free trip to Hollywood to meet with 
acting coaches ONLY IF they were talented enough 
to grab the judges' hearts. 

Simon, Paula, and Randy were not able to attend 
this event, so Erin, Ashley, and Maxine were asked 
to brave the cold air of November and choose the 
most talented student to represent their campus. 

Participants could either recite a poem or do a short 
monologue for the camera. If the participants did 
not know a monologue off of the top of their heads, 
a book of movie monologues were provided. 

Before the talent began to perform, for comedy 
relief, the judged and anyone else who was listening 
were entertained by a foul mouth UMass student 
who professed her love over and over again to the 
Red Sox. She even had 10 reasons why the Red 
Sox were going to beat the Yankees. Some of them 
would be listed, but each sentence had at least 2 
four letter words. 

The talent on this day included an irate hippie who 
wanted to, "sit, smoke his cigarette, and watch 
the swans attack students." After he was finished 
raging against capitalism and Ford, eager students 
were FINALLY allowed to take the stage along with 
students who wanted to beg for a new car. One 
student even said, "for those who are begging for 
a new car because their car is a piece of <beep>, I 
just want to let you all know that my BIKE is my 
car! When I lock it up outside, I have to remove 
the wheels just so no one would steal it. I used to 
have a .seat on my bike, but I lost it and now I have 



to bike standing up!" 

All in all, the talent in this event was remarkable. 
The audiences were entertained with scenes from 
Mo' Better Blues, The 1 Things I Hate About You, 
The Cable Guy, personal poems, and even some 
people decided to get up there to let their vocals 
tickle the microphones. 

The Winner of the event was Tyler Wolff Ormes. 
He along with one guest (he brought his girlfriend) 
were given free tickets to Hollywood and he was 
entered into a contest for a free Ford car. When he 
returned his girlfriend dumped him. ..what a loser! 
The girl that is...

students skate and enjoy a free chicken 
wing tasting before iiucivey game 

On a freezing night in Januai'y. UMass Amherst stu- 
dents who chose to attend the Hockey game against 
BC, were treated to two extra events. Before the 
game, students were enticed by the free skating that 
the Student Activities Center as well as the Student 
Affairs Office planned at the Mullins Center. 

After they skated around and worked up a hearty 
appetite, the students were then given a free wing 
testing before they went into the hockey rink to 
cheer on their team. The wings at the event in- 
cluded Dominos, Big Y. and Campus Catering. 

Once the students were stuffed from tasting three 
wings and a free soda, they piled into the Hockey 
Rink to watch Boston College pul veiize our hockey 
team. The night was a fun one for all.

In celebration of students coming back to campus 
and to cheer up their Winter Blues. The Village 
was sponsored by the Student Activities Center. 
During this night, students were fed foods from 
the Caribbean like yams. Jambalaya (meat and 
vegetarian). Island punch, and red beans and rice. 
The food was provided from the Campus Center 
Catering. 

Once their bellies were full, students were able to 
receive Mendhi tattoos, temporary tattoos, certifi- 
cates to STA Travel, as well as free candy, UMass 
paraphernalia, and leis. For those who wanted 
more than free stuff, a karaoke machine ran by 
the dopest karaoke deejay was set up in the Blue 
Wall. Let me tell you, that place was jumping 
from songs like "Ice, Ice, Baby," "Oops! I did it 
again." "Push It," and Mambo Italiano"

It tension is what you feel during finals, the Student 
Activities Center has created Tension Breakers for 
\(iu. Tension Breakers was designed to give students 
the opportunity to have some fun the day before 
finals begin. 

Students who choose to walk through the Concourse 
were doused with free goodie bags, stress balls, 
massages, balloon animals, and even button making. 
For those who needed liquid stimulation, hot choco- 
ite as well as other sugary drinks were available. 

Usually the goodie bags are the first to go, but it's 
interesting to see the look on students' faces when 
you approach them with something free without a 
credit card application in your hands. Some stu- 
dents were apprehensive about taking a bag, others 
would give the staff dirty looks, while some would 
well up with emotion and thank the staff for thinking 
of them during their stressful times.

Students celebrate a decade that many of 
them never experienced 




It was a time when Michael Jackson was 
noticably African American and Heavy Metal 
groups like Motley Crue stole the hearts of young 
Americans. A time where sitcoms featured shows 
called Fame and The Thunder Cats. Yes folks, I'm 
talking about the 80' s a decade where the fashion 
was fun and it was a compliment if someone said 
that you were "fresh." 

The majority of students on the UMass campus 
have never experienced the 80' s personally, but 
through the magic of shows like I love the 80's 
on VH-1 and movies like The Breakfast Club and 
Pretty in Pink, these studetns were able to see 
what most of the 80' s are all about. This little 
fact did not stop students from dressing up 80' s 
trade-mark clothes and stepping out to the Student 
Union Ballroom in April. 

Participants of the event were met with Club- 
T Productions that not only provided the music 
and the lights for the event, but they also had the 
chance to view the videos of the 80' s on two huge 
screens set up in the middle of the Ballroom. Talk 
about all around entertainment... 

If having a free 80' s event with good music, 
company, and the opportunity to raid their older 
siblings closets wasn't enough, students were also 
given various gifts that represented the 80's...okay, 
they really didn't represent the 80's but since most 
of these students lived through the 90' s they were 
given gifts that represent those times, like slap 
bracelets. The winners of the best costume re- 
ceived lava lamps and the respect of their peers. 

All in all, the 80's night left students hot, sweaty, 
and shocked because they saw how Bobby Brown 
looked when he a was pre-teen in New Edition.

Today we have higher buildings and wider high- 
ways, but shorter tempers and narrower points of 

view. 



We spend more, but enjoy less. 

We have bigger houses, but smaller families. 

We have more compromises, but less time. 

We have more knowledge, but less judgment. 

We have more medicines, but less health. 

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced 

our values. ^ 

We have higher incomes but lower morals. 

These are times with more liberty, but less joy. 

We have much more food, but less nutrition. 

These are times of finer houses, but more broken 

homes. 
That's why I propose, that as of today, you do not 
keep anything for a special occasion, because ev- 
eryday that you live is a special occasion. 
Search for knowledge, read more, sit on your front 

porch and admire the view. 
Spend more time with your family and friends, eat 

your favorite foods, visit the places you love. 
Life is a chain of moments to enjoy; it is not only 

about survival. 
Remove from your vocabulary phrases like "one of 

these days" and "someday." 

Let's write that letter we thought of writing "one of 

these days." 

Let's tell our families and friends how much we 

love them. 
Do not delay anything that adds laughter and joy 

to your life. 
Every day, every hour, and every minute is special. 

And you don't know if it will be your last.

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn) 

There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn) 

And a time for every purpose, under Heaven 



A time to be born, a time to die 
A time to plant, a time to reap 

A time to kill, a time to heal 
A time to laugh, a time to weep 

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn) 

There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn) 

And a time for every purpose, under Heaven 

A time to build up, a time to break down 

A time to dance, a time to mourn 

A time to cast away stones, a time to gather 

stones together 

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn) 

There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn) 

And a time for every purpose, under Heaven 

A time of love, a time of hate 

A time of war, a time of peace 

A time you may embrace, a time to refrain from 

embracing 

To Everything (Turn, Turn, Turn) 

There is a season (Turn, Turn, Turn) 

And a time for every purpose, under Heaven 

A time to gain, a time to lose 
A time to rend, a time to sew i 
A time to love, a time to hate 
A time for peace, I swear it's not too late

Imagine there's no heaven 

It's easy if you try 

No hell below us 

Above us only sky 

Imagine all the people 

Living for today... 



Imagine there's no countries 

It isn't hard to do 

Nothing to kill or die for 

And no religion too 

Imagine all the people 

Living life in peace... 



You may say I'm a dreamer 

But I'm not the only one 
I hope someday you'll join us 
And the world will be as one 



Imagine no possessions 

I wonder if you can 

No need for greed or hunger 

A brotherhood of man 

Imagine all the people 

g Sharing all the world... 

You may say I'm a dreamer

I hope someday you'll join us

I was born in the Congo.

I designed a pyramid so tough that a star 

that only glows every one hundred years falls 

into the center giving divine perfect light.

I sat on the throne 

drinking nectar with Allah. 

I got hot and sent an ice age to Europe 

to cool my thirst. 

My oldest daughter is Nefertiti. 

The tears from my birth pains 

created the Nile. 

I am^ a beautiful woman. 

I gazed on the forest and burned w

I'm not afraid of anything in this world 
There's nothing you can throw at me that I haven't already 

heard 

I'm just trying to find a decent melody 

A song that I can sing in my own company 

I never thought you were a fool 

But darling, look at you 

You gotta stand up straight, carry your own weight 

These tears are going nowhere, baby 

I will not forsake, the colours that you bring 

But the nights you filled with fireworks 

They left you with nothing 

I am still enchanted by the light you brought to me 

I still listen through your ears, and through your eyes I can 

see 

And you are such a fool 

To worry like you do 

I know it's tough, and you can never get enough 

Of what you don't really need now... my oh my 

And if the night runs over 

And if the day won't last 

And if your way should falter 

Along the stony pass 

It's just a moment 

This time will pass

In time you just might take to feeling better 

Time is the beauty of the road being long 

I know that now you feel no consolation 

But maybe if I told you and informed you out loud 

I say this without fear of hesitation 

I can honestly tell you that you make me proud 

If anything I might have just said has helped you 

If anything I might have just said helped you just carry on 

Your rise uphill may no longer seem a struggle 

And your appetite for pain may all but be gone 

I hope for you and cannot stop at hoping

Dear Class of 2005, 



Each graduating class carries with it memories of its 
activities and accomphshments, its difficulties and dis- 
appointments, and the changes that took place in their 
lives during its undergraduate years. These memories 
reflect not only the personal experiences of every stu- 
dent, but the achievements that marked their explora- 
tion of life and learning. 

Our campus supports multiple micro communities, 
and each of you belonged to many of them throughout 
your time here. Some formed around your academic 
lives in departments, schools, and colleges; others 
appeared within your residence halls. You joined 
clubs and sports teams, became part of sororities and 
fraternities, engaged in on and off campus organiza- 
tions, and contributed to projects and activities. Each 
of these micro communities provided an opportunity 
for social and academic growth and a point of engage- 
ment where you changed the university, improving and 
updating its programs and activities to meet the needs 
of the current generation. 

This yearbook captures some of your activities; it 
serves to remind you of those years, and it reminds us 
of all that you contributed to the campus' exceptional 
quality. 



We are proud of this class. We admire your accom- 
plishments, your impact on this institution, and your 
remarkable promise. We will turn to this yearbook to 
remind ourselves of your time here and as a token of 
this class' continuing engagement with the University 
of Massachusetts Amherst.

And 
so we talked all night 
about the rest of our lives 
Where we're gonna be when we turn 25 
I keep thinking times will never change 
Keep on thinking things will always be the same 
But when we leave this year we won't be coming back 
No more hanging out cause we're on a different track 
And if you got something that you need to say 
You better say it right now cause you don't have another day 
Cause we're moving on and we can't slow down 
These memories are playing like a film without sound 
nd I keep thinking of that night in June 
didn't know much of love 
But it came too soon And there was me and you 
And then we got real cool Stay at home talking on the tele- 
phone with me We'd get so excited, we'd get so scared 
Laughing at our selves thinking life's not fair 
And this is how it feels 
As we go on We remember 
All the times we Had together 
And as our lives change 

Come whatever We will still be 
Friends Forever

So if 
we get the big jobs 
And we make the big money 
When we look back now 
Will our jokes still be funny? 
Will we still remember everything we learned in school? 
Still be trying to break every single rule 
Will little brainy Bobby be the stockbroker man? 
Can we ever find a job that won't interfere with a tan? 
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye 
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly 
And this is how it feels 

Will we think about tomorrow like we think about now? 
Can we survive it out there? 
Can we make it somehow? 
I guess I thought that this would never end 
And suddenly it's like we're women and men 
Will the past be a shadow that will follow us 'round? 
Will these memories fade when I leave this town 
I keep, I keep thinking that it's not goodbye 
Keep on thinking it's a time to fly

It all happened so fast 
''little one'' ... 




Vhen you were bom, we often would look at you with those beautiful hazel eyes and 

wonder where life would lead you, what you would choose and who would you look like in 

the family. You were a thouglitful and serene baby ... so different from your sisters. <So often 

you would watch all the chaos and commotion swirling around you and just quietly observe. 

It was always interesting to us as your parents and we would ask ... "1 wonder what she is 

thinking about?" it is still amazing that those behaviors still exist today ... and as we see how 

you observe all the workings around you ... many of us still wonder what is being thouglit 

in that prett>' head. Vou were our last Uttle girl. You were our promise to a troubled world that a new and soulful spirit would 

keep truth and kindness alive. 
We saw you grow up tlirougli losses that impacted your life as a young cliild and we knew your inner spirit would help 

you navigate the harsh realities of pain at that age. There are so many cherished times, stories and memories to reflect on 

that now seem so long ago. All are a tapestry of your life. 
\Ve wanted tliis to last forever ... but we both knew when you went to college, all of our lives would change forever. Time 

moved on ... you became an adult and made your own decisions ... and in the process found out about who you are and 

what it is that you value in your o\m life. Dad and I are proud of who you are and how you have 
grown into a young woman with a solid character that is built from the heritage of your ancestors 
and the principles of our family. Your great grandparents were poor and some illiterate ... but 
with your skill of writing and your love of poetry, you keep their soulful lament for a better life 
alive and heard. \M tills is our wish for you. \ good life ... a life free of heartache and sadness. 
\ life knowing you will be loved and choosing the person who will love you for the person you 
are. 

vSo choose well little one ... we know it all happened so f ast . . . but life has its own timetable. 
And sometimes it just seems like a swirl. Use your talents, cherish who you are, recognize what 
you can achieve and when you are afraid of how to or when to ... just jump in and mim with 
tlie doipliins. The guideposts in your life will appear and aeate a road of discovery for you that 
you could never imaguie. Take the risks and learn from all that happens. 

The cycle of life teaches that the world goes on ... even without us. vSo when the time comes 
for both of us to become part of your personal journal of memories ... look to the stars and 
we will liear you. Remember when you speak our names in your heart, we will be mtli you. 
Always. 




\Ve love you beyond words 

Mary Katherine 

God bless you forever ... Mom and Dad.
