the school year ended with a bang for most students, many athletes did not get a taste of 
summer break until their season ended. Teams such as Softball, golf and track played 
through June in competitions around the states and brought home numerous awards.

McKendree strengthens community bonds 

The legend lives on 



by Emily Sisk 



It is clear to see that N lcKendree College has changed and grown significantly 
since it first was established in 1828. However, one thing that has not 
changed but continues to grow is the relationship that the campus shares with 
area churches as the annual Pastors Day is held on campus. Local pastors and 
other church leaders met to discuss involving young adults in ministry. The 
campus' own church relation gives proof to the existence of such a combination. 
The visiting pastors were very impressed with the amount of religious 
activities that occur and hope to do the same in their home churches. Along 
with this successful event, the college had much to celebrate as its 170th 
birthday occurred on February 20, 1998. With a theme of "Memories, 
Melodies, and Milestones." the college's many achievements were recognized 
as a ceremony for the entire McKendree community was held in Circuit 
Riders. 



Bart Campolo greets a visiting pastor before 
he speaks in Pearsons Hall. Pastors of the 
surrounding discuss various religious issues. 





in honor of the college's 170th birtheday. 
President James Dennis and past student 
government president Kelly Franklin begin 
the Founder's Day celebration by cutting the

invitedto the celebration in Ames dining hall.

"The King found a suitable suitor for his wallflower daughter. The shy 
prince found the courage to express his true feelings. The Jester never 
really did get the picture..." quoted the McKendree Review. Directed by 
Dr. Jennifer Peters, students and faculty members participated, leaving the 
audience enchanted in a medieval atmoshphere. During spring break, the 
College Concert Choir toured Kentucky and Tennessee. Directed by Dr. 
Nancy Ypma, the choir performed at United Methodist churches, St. 
Jude's Hopital, and the Ronald McDonald House. In between concerts, the 
choir experienced the Memphis spirit in attractions such as the Martin 
Luther King Memorial, Graceland and the night life on Beale Street.

Growing pains 



Part of the plan 



by Sarah Yount ami Emily Sisk 



New changes greeted McKendree students at the beginning 
of fall classes as McKendree took on a new look with 
many new building projects to greet the new millennium. 
It was all a part of the plan. McKendree West opened its doors to 
50 more on-campus residents complete with clubhouse including 
laundry facilities, spacious conference rooms and various fitness 
amenitites. Also making more room, the Alumni Association 
moved to new quarters w ith Student Affairs taking its previous 
location. In addition, piles of dirt behind MPCC were converted 
into an intramural field much needed for sporting events while the 
old field was cemented over to provide more parking availability. 
Topping off all the building projects is the current construction of 
the Marion K. Piper Academic Center that will greet the new 
millennium— another project that is all a part of the plan. The 
Piper family ties to McKendree go back to Louis Latzer, the 
grandfather of Marion Piper. Latzer was a student at McKendree. 
The 28.209 square foot academic center will house 1 3 classrooms, 
2 seminar rooms, faculty offices and admission offices. The walls 
of the center will display various art work from McKendree 
students. New faces who greeted students included anew chaplain 
as well as English, nursing, finance, accounting, sociology and 
political science professors. The McKendree community 
welcomed the new building changes along with the new faces and 
counted them all a part of the plan. 



In preparation for the ground breaking ceremony a 
computer generated photo of the Marion K. Piper 
Academic Center was released to the public. 



In search of more office space, this house on 
Alton street was purchased for the future 
home of the Alumni Association.

ceremony. Vernon W. 
Piper is applauded for his 
generous donation. 



What's the plan? 

To set the record straight, here are the 
changes and improvements that have 
developed around campus: 

♦ A new academic building in front of 
and to the side of the current Bearcat 
gym 

♦ Renovation of the Lair 

♦ New apartment buildings and 
clubhouse at McKendree West 

♦ New parking lot in front of mods 

♦ Relocation of Student Affairs to the 
current Alumni house 

♦ Relocation of Alumni House to newly 
purchased house on Alton street 

♦ Relocation of intra-mural field to 
behind MPCC 



Right in step with other 
construction sites the 
ground is broke tor the 
new Intramural field.

no longer the "best kept secret" as scholar students around the world choose to attend. The 
campus community begins to fathom how much more is in store for the campus as the new 
millennium draws near. Looking at the history of the college, one can clearly see that the 
campus has changed and continues to grow tremendously. The campus now holds 20 
buildings containing new technology with a historic taste. However, what one knows for 
sure, is that the college will stand close to its goal of providing students a well-rounded 
liberal arts quality education which in turn is all a part of the plan.

as Dr. Thomas Mann, Mr. Gregg

about McKendree, Dr. Woodruff stated, 
"I have known about McKendree's fine 
reputation as a liberal arts college for 
years. I learned about its reputation 
during one of my pastor's addresses 
recommending McKendree to the 
young men and women of our church." 
Woodruff was pleased to have joined

an opportunity to work with dedicated 
young men and women who have 
proven records of academic excellence 
in higher education. Dr. Frank Spreng, 
chair of the business division, was quite 
pleased in the growth of the number of 
faculty and the number of students 
enrolled in business courses. When 
asked what their favorite business class 
was, many students preferred Dr. Hart's 
international business class. This was 
mainly because of the annual 
international business dinner.

The Integrated Studies Program gave 
first year students an opportunity to 
take courses in clusters that focused on 
a central theme. The faculty teaching 
in the program worked together to 
create a collaborative learning 
environment. Students met on a regular 
basis with all of the cluster faculty in 
seminar sessions that emphasized 
student involvement through active 
learning techniques. Class size was 
limited to enable students to learn 
cooperatively and develop close 
working relationships and friendships 
with other students and faculty. Dr. 



David Ahola, one of four faculty members 
involved, stated, "Students have bonded 
in a way we never seen before." The 
topic of discussion was race, class, gender: 
power and privilege in the United States. 
The program encouraged outside learning 
activities such as field trips, group dinners, 
films and service. Community service 
connected knowing with doing. Students 
applied what they learned in the 
classroom to the community and vice 
versa. Students were so impressed with i

In the abnormal psychology class 
issues such as adult development,

Behind the Scenes 

Staff create a supportive environment 



One area that is often overlooked and less 
recognized is the adminstration and staff of 
the college. However, this group of people 
holds the campus together and handles issues 
varying from financial affairs and admissions 
to maintenance and security. One area that 
has experienced much growth and change is 
student affairs. Despite beginning his work 
during the middle of the last year Ken Baremore 
has begun his first year of being the Director 
of Residence Life. The residence life program 
on campus has grown and been revamped 
with the additionn of new staff, two new 
apartment buildings and a clubhouse at 
McKendree West. All on campus housing 
was filled to its capacity as more and more 
students are becoming residents. The campus 
activities board has also experienced a boost 



w i tli the arrival of new director Adam Peck. The 
program was without a director for about a year 
and started experiencing a decline in student 
participation. With a new director and the 
formation of two committees, campus activities 
have presented a variety of events and have 
increased overall student interest. Another new 
member welcomed to the McKendree 
community was Reverend Tim Harrison who 
served as the college chaplain. Rev. Harrison 
began the weekly worship service with hopes 
of increasing student involvment in religious 
groups. Many students, when faced with a 
problem, turned to one of the many staff 
members, who were more than w illing to help 
as they served as an important role in the 
McKendree community. 



Behind the scenes, all financial concerns of the 
college are taken care of by comptroller Stan 
Osterhage.

This includes commuters and part-time students who make up a majority of the enrollment. Along with 
having jobs and other committments, commuters continued to make their presence know n on campus as they 
took the initiative to form a new club. Freshman commuter Ryan Murphy stated. "Having a job off campus 
makes it hard to get as involved as I would like but I try to participate in as many activities as I can. Doing 
so enables me to have some fun and feel more like a typical college student." Whether commuter or resident,

all a well-rounded education in the fine higher institution it serves as today.

numerous requests from African American Students for a group especially for black 
students on campus. Mario Hunt, president of BMcK stated, "I was very pleased with the 
formation of this new group and glad to see the campus support extending diversity." 
Another aspect of campus clubs and organizations was greek life. The campus had five 
greek organizations on campus each seeing a boost in members. The continual growth and 
support of campus clubs and organizations was another brick in the wall as McKendree 
lives up to being All a Part of the Plan.

With mentioning the name Sigma Nu. what came to most student's minds was 
memories of fun-filled and wall-to-wall packed dances. With their annual Wild 
Turkey. Halloween, and Snow hall dances, many students came to get a break 
from studies and have their share of excitement No matter what location, a crowd 
was always in attendance. Many of the local bars and clubs issued invitations due 
to the expectancy of such large crowds. "Despite being some work on our part, 
I enjoy sponsoring the dances and am glad to be a part of such a happening 
group," stated member Tom Kupferer. The group's popularity and recognition 
has soared as it now carries a national charter.

Sororities combine social and service 

by Molly Buck 
When it came to sororities, McKendree offered three groups for women to 
choose, two of which are Alpha Omega and Clio. Alpa Omega helped out the 
community by participating in car washes, bowl-a-thons and candy sales. 
President Jennie Sees stated, " 1 liked our service projects because they provided 
a break from school while giving back to the community. "Loyalty, friendship 
and sisterhood have been demonstrated by the Clionian Literary Society since 
its founding in 1869. The group of 24 active members sponsored dances 
throughout the year. Sophomore member Michele Rine stated, "I liked our 
sorority dances because they provide some fun."

Greek life on campus grew and became more widely known while two of the six 
greek organizations participated in a vast amount of community service. Kappa 
Sigma Tau used their strong sisterhood ties in participating in events such as the 
Lions candy sales. "Being real close to each other really helped us all pull together 
in making the best of each project," stated new member Allison Luebbers. The 
largest greek organization whose mission was community service was Alpha Phi 
Omega. With more than 30 active members, APO always had great participation 
in service events at the Bohannon Nursing Home, the Lebanon Public Library

Alpha Psi Omega, the campus theater honor society which has been in existence 
for more than 70 years, produced both a fall and spring play. The group worked 
hard as there were four performances of each play. The fall play was Crimes of 
the Heart and left audiences laughing all the way. The Importance of Being 
Earnest, performed in the spring, enjoyed good attendance and campus support. 
This year the drama department saw the addition of a minor in theater. " I think 
the theater program is becoming better with each year and I am excited to be a 
part of it," stated sophomore Erica Smith. Another service provided by Alpha

Many of the campus honor fraternities had a very busy year as they participated in various 
service projects around the area. For example. Phi Beta Lambda, the campus business 
honor society, participated in the March of Dimes walk-a-thon and a bowl-a-thon as they 
also visited many area businesses. Ted Anderson and Angela Luetkenhaus, new 
advisors for Sigma Zeta, the science honor society, joined the group working at local 
science fairs, sponsoring a scholarship competition for incoming freshmen, spelunking 
and rebuilding the campus greenhouse. Pi Gamma Mu. the social science honor society 
continued to further students in their academic enrichment and professional career. An

SGA raises funds for the campus 

by Emily Sisk 
Representing and overseeing campus life this year was the Student Government 
Association. The group had the most important job of designating funds to all 
clubs and organizations on campus. In order to equally distribute funds, SGA 
held a major fund-raising project during Homecoming. Some of the money 
raised was spent for a McKendree flag to hang outside the Lair and bike racks 
to be placed around campus. The busy year continued as SGA representatives 
B.J. Yurcisin and John Garner represented McKendree at the 36th National 
Conference on student services held in Washington D.C. The two strengthened 
their leadership skills and shared concerns about various campus issues.

Campus activities 

Group plans many events 

by Erin Frazier and Emily Sisk 
The campus activity board experienced a face-lift this year as it took on a new 
addition. Along with the new campus activity director Adam Peck, a new board 
called the Union was added. According to Adam Peck, the goal of the Union 
board was "to turn the area known as the Lair more into a student union and to 
offer more services and opportunities for people to visit the union." With the 
addition of this new board, more time was spent planning events the campus 
loved and working to create better and more enjoyable events for the entire 
campus community. The group sponsored events such as a comedy series. Fall 
Family Festival, Homecoming, Stress lest, coffeehouse and commuter events.

flexibility to make Renaissance appearances," explained director Dr. Peters. 
Besides presenting the annual Madrigal Dinner, they have also performed in a 
costumed Christmas Concert and visited the Kansas City Renaissance Festival. 
Singers found the Cantori experience rewarding for a variey of reasons. 
Graduating senior Rich Utke, who was a charter member for the group, stated, 
" It has been a time to learn togetherness and form close friendships. I will miss 
both the people and the music next year."

Adding diversity 

Two new clubs formed 

by Mario Hunt 
Diversity began to spread throughout the campus as two new groups were formed 
especially for African American Students. Black Men of McKendree was formed 
to promote leadership development and the diversity to recruit, retain, and 
succesfully graduate African Men on campus while hoping to revamp the 
negative statistical stereotype. President Louis Harden stated "Caring about 
adults, the society and campus growth while leaning towards diversity was what 
BMcK is striving for on this campus." Director of Multicultural Affairs then 
decided a club for African American women was also needed and formed a 
similar group called B.S.O, Black Student Organization.

Building friendships 

Groups encourage meeting new people 

by Emily Sisk 
Freshmen developed friendships and were better acquainted with the campus 
as a new course called Freshmen Seminar was offered. The purpose of the 
course was to help the transition to college an easier process for incoming 
students. Students participated in a variety of activities and workshops that 
enabled them to get to know their professors, peers and college. Student Johnna 
Hood stated." I really enjoyed the course because it was interesting and didn't 
require a lot of work." Students had the same opportunity to meet new people 
who shared their same interests in joining Psychology club. The club hosted 
events such as holiday parties, movie nights, discussions and community 
service opportunities. The advisers were Dr. Eggleston and Dr. Bosse.

Both the campus ministry and yearbook have grown in membership. The 
campus ministry increased its attendance from 2( 1-30 students at a meeting to 70- 
90. Students took the initiative to better the ministry and began meeting in groups 
such as FCA. MOSAIC Peace and MOSAIC Chat. These groups offered 
students the opportunity to grow spiritually and discuss issues that laced young 
people today. Reverend Tim Harrison who served as the chaplain stated. "I am 
very pleased with the direction that campus ministry has taken." It also was a 
very successful! yearfortheMcKendrean yearbook as they moved into a bigger

In its third year of recognition, the men and women's track teams have made 
great strides. The Bearcats made a strong appearance at the 1998 track and field 
nationals. These young teams displayed talent in every aspect of its title "Track 
and Field." Many records were made and broken. Such an example was from 
Agne Visarcatia who held titles in the 1 00. 200 and 55 meter along with the 4 by 
100 and 400 meter relay. The men's cross country team competed in the NA1A 
Midwest Regional meet and won the region for the second year in a row. Led by 
nationals champion Sarah Korir. the women's cross country team won the 
Midwest region title for the third straight year. Along with Korir, sophomore

Football team joins new league 

by Wrandy Kirkpatrick and Mario Hunt 

It was a year of excitement and thrills as the Bearcat football team entered the Mid- 
State Football Association in only its third year as a team. Many coaches in the 
league felt McKendree would not be worthy of being in the Mid-State league. 
How ever the Cats proved them wrong in September when they got their first win 
of the season at home defeating the number 16th ranked Doane State. This win 
gave head coach Carl Poelker his 100th career victory with an overall record of 
100-47-1. The football team was made up of one Ail-American, one Academic 
Ail-American and numerous Midwest conference players. At the end of their 
season, the team had a 6-4 record. Despite not having senior players Louis 
Harden. Brent Baker. Jeff Keher, Brian Simik and Will Weatherford next year, the 
team looks forward to winning conference.

McKendree demonstrates growth 

by Emily Sisk 
As the McKendree community looked back over the year and faced the 
new millennium, the growth in campus building projects and academic 
programs shone as the bench mark of the year. Many rennovations and 
improvements w ere made to the campus, bringing the quality of its 
education up to speed and enhancing technological advances. McKendree 
West opened its doors to new faces as two new apartment complexes and 
a clubhouse were completed. The highlight of the year came when 
ground was broken for the new Marion K. Piper Academic Center with 
its classroom and office facilities that are to be completed in 200 1 . Much 
excitement and advancement are in the future as McKendree lives up to 
being all a part of the plan.

It was another successful year for the McKendrean as we had a staff of 
more than 30 people, moved into a larger office, improved our headlines, 
captions, picture quality, layout design, included more quotes from 
students, faculty and staff and continued the newly acquired tradition of 
a spring book delivery. I would like to thank past editor, the "all- 
knowing" Jeni Wise, for her continual help and support. Also a thank 
you goes out to Stacey Montooth for her contribution of sports pictures. 
A big thank you goes to the few yearbook staff members who didn't quit 
and worked to the end. It really helps to have a staff who pulls together 
and gets things done. Last and most importantly, I would like thank our 
Herff Jones representative for four years, Lucy Conner. She has been 
an extreme help in allowing assistant editor Sarah Yount and me work 
endless hours on the computer at her house as well as feeding us meals 
and welcoming us in her home. We couldn't have done it without her. 
My first year as editor has been a great learning experience. After six 
years of working on a yearbook, this may be my last. Yearbook has 
been a big part of my life and I will miss it, but I feel I need to explore 
other areas of interest. I hope you all enjoyed this book of memories and 
will consider contributing to the next McKendrean. 



The McKendrean was printed by Herff Jones 
at its yearbook producing plant in Marceline, 
Missouri. The capital gold VibraTex cover 
was silkscreeened in purple with handtooled 
graining. The custom embossed cover was 
designed by the staff using the Herff Jones 
die library. The theme "All a Part of the Plan" 
reflected the extensive building program and 
educational growth on campus. The 1 17 page 
book was printed on 8()# high-gloss Bordeaux 
paper. Layouts and copy were done on PC's 
using PageMaker 5. 0,PageMaster templates, 
and the Gallery CD-ROM. There were four 
pages of violet spotcolor. Press run was 1 50 
copies.
