Def: an institution of learning of 

the highest level, having a 

college of liberal arts and a

degrees 



McKendree's shift from 
college to university proved to 
be one of the biggest highlights 
of the 2007-2008 Academic 
Year. What better term to 
represent the most exciting 
portion of the yearbook, the 
highlights section, in which the 
most anticipated events of the 
year are recorded. From the 
beginnings at New Student 
Orientation all the way to 
Commencement in May, 
McKendree provides its 
community with exciting events 
in the lives of members of the 
campus community. These all 
take place at this institution of 
learning in the highest level. 
McKendree has expanded its 
boundaries in terms of 
education, yet these crucial 
moments during the school year 
remain.

JVIcKendree College becomes 

inois' oldest college & newest university 



The 2007-2008 academic world welcomed a new name as 
McKendree College, the first college chartered and 
established in the state of Illinois, became McKendree 
University. July 1, 2007 marked a new era in McKendree 
history after 179 years as McKendree College. Officially, 
McKendree became Illinois' oldest college and newest 
university. McKendree President Dr. Jim M. Dennis 
announced, "Our board of trustees directed us to change 
our name to reflect more accurately the broad educational 
opportunities McKendree offers." 

Founded in 1828 by pioneer Methodists as Lebanon 
Seminary, McKendree is the oldest institution in the nation 
with continuous ties to the United Methodist Church. A 
grand total of 72 students were enrolled in classes in 1828, 
and classes were held in two rented sheds. McKendree now 
has a current population of nearly 1400 undergraduate 
students taking classes at the Main Campus in Lebanon, 
Illinois. McKendree is also proud to offer new graduate 
programs in education, professional counseling, business 
administration and nursing, home to about 950 graduate 
students composing one quarter of the student population. 
McKendree had previously offered post-graduate degrees 
starting in 1828 but discontinued this program in 1905. 
Other McKendree campuses are located in Louisville and 
Radcliff Kentucky, Scott AFB and several other small 
locations in central Illinois. 

In addition to the increase in population, McKendree 
boasts new state of the art facilities, including the Marion K. 
Piper Academic center, built in 2000 and the Hettenhausen 
Center for the Arts, which opened in 2006. Offering a broad 
range of disciplines with 59 majors, McKendree University is 
comprised of a School of Business, a School of Nursing and 
Health Professions, a School of Education, and the 
McKendree College of Arts and Sciences. "Changing our 
name to McKendree University is not a revolutionary change. 
It is an evolution, and in an important sense a return to our 
heritage," said President Dennis when he announced the 
name change. "With the growth of program offerings, new 
facilities and enrollment, we have evolved into a university, 
and now our name will reflect that."

from 11 states and 10 countries. The first-year 
students also boasted an amazing academic 
record with an average ACT score of 24 and an 
average GPAof 3.5. 

During NSO first-year students enjoy four 
days of introductory activities including 
bowling, a book discussion and break out 
sessions on various aspects of college life 
including religious life, student affairs and 
information technology. 

First-year student Melissa Funk said "I really 
enjoyed NSO weekend. It gave me a chance to 
meet many of the people that I would be in 
class with. The "Into the Streets" project was 
as fun as it was educational. It was a good 
feeling knowing that I helped someone."

Ubiquity 



\yu-bi-kew-te\ 

noun 

Def : the state or capacity of 

being everywhere, especially at 

the same time; omnipresence 

Students at McKendree come 
from a variety of backgrounds; 
their interests and involvement 
on and around campus vary. So, 
what exactly do students do 
when they are not in class or 
working on endless 
assignments 7 Whether students 
choose to spend their spare time 
playing frisbee in the quad, 
volunteering at a local school, 
gallivanting around St. Louis or 
sipping coffee in Lebanon, they 
live it up. While the interests of 
students on campus vary so 
much, all of these activities occur 
simultaneously. By taking a look 
out of a Holman Library's second 
floor window, relaxing in PAC 
lounge, or walking up and down 
the residence halls, the wide 
variety of activities comprising 
student life at McKendree is 
obvious and welcome.

Spring fling 



nl 1 9, 2 



As spring fever begins to take over campus, 
Campus Activities Board (CAB) has the perfect 
solution - Spring Fling. This annual event is the 
perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon. This 
year's event featured food, games, live music, a 
petting zoo and a new event called "Chalk the Circle." 
Artists of all skill levels were invited to decorate the 
concrete surrounding circle drive with sidewalk chalk 
drawings. Prizes were awarded for Best Mural, 
People's Choice and Most Unique. An interesting 
aspect to Spring Fling is that many Registered 
Student Organizations (RSOs) use Spring Fling as a 
fundraiser. Every RSO that helped out was given at 
least $150 from CAB. Spring Fling is the last major 
social event on campus before graduation.

an academic environment in 
which they work rigorously so 
that they can utilize the 
information, skills, and 
experience they take away from 
the classroom and other 
educational experiences while at 
McKendree. They utilize what 
they learn in their daily lives and 
await the time when they can 
use their gifts and talents in 
future professions. The 
academic environment causes 
them to utilize their brains, and 
deep down inside, they know 
that this will be of great use in 
the future. The Honors Societies

The Alpha Theta chapter of Alpha Psi Omega is one of 
the oldest active chapters of the organization. This 
honor society exists to recognize outstanding students 
in the performing arts. Students who participate in the 
cast or crew of a McKendree production earn points and 
when a student reaches a certain number of points they 
are invited to join the honor society. Alpha Psi Omega 
puts on weekly improv nights in the Eisenmayer 
Auditorium. This year the group took their improv skills 
off campus for open mic nights at The Sweeter House 
of Coffee in Lebanon.

Drs. Pat Folk and Feza Ozturk have spent the 

past year teaching at the Ege University in 

Bornova, Izmir, Turkey. Both professors 

recieved Fulbright Scholar awards for the 

2007-2008 academic year. These are very 

competitive and prestigious awards that allow 

U.S. faculty and professors to lecture and 

conduct research abroad. Reflecting on his 

trip Dr. Folk stated, "A year in Turkey, 

interacting with students and colleagues 

whose cultural, linguistic, and religious 

backgrounds are quite different from my 

own, will make me a far better teacher when I 

get back to McKendree." Dr. Folk and Dr. 

Ozturk have both been to Turkey before as Dr. 

Ozturk is a native of Turkey. Their 16-year old 

son Eddie accompanied them on their trip.

Dr. Phil Wilhelm wrote "Cod Is Still 
Speaking" in 2004 to celebrate the 50th 

Anniversary of the United Church of 

Christ. The song encourages people to 

hold on to their faith during troubled 

times. His song was recorded and will be 

included on the CD titled "Light of the 

World," which is a compilation of Gospel 

songs. The CD is currently in the 

production phase and should be released 

in the summer of 2008. The following 

words are the chorus to his song "Cod is 

still speaking to you and to me, do we 

fervently listen or beg our own way? Cod 

is still speaking to you and to me, in the 

midst or life's questions Cod shows us the 

way."

result is victory or learning from 
defeat, we applaud our athletes

dedicate themselves to working on the 
yearbook. 



The Yearbook staff worked diligently from before the start 
of the academic year to after graduation to put together the 
91st Volume of The McKendrean yearbook. The theme for this 
year, A Whole New u, was inspired by McKendree's name 
change from McKendree College to McKendree University. This 
book was driven by the efforts of many, including Advisor Jeff 
Campbell, Co-Editors Beth Newman and Lauren Hettenhausen 
and student worker Sarah Haas. Many staff members and 
others in the McKendree community contributed to the 
completion of the book. Staff members attempted to capture 
the essence of this year at McKendree through photo and copy, 
highlighting special events and recognizing students, faculty, 
teams, and groups in various ways. Newman stated, "I enjoy 
working with and getting to know so many people through 
working on the Yearbook staff. I also feel that I have gained 
many skills that I can use in my classroom. I hope to continue 
using my skills once I begin teaching by working on a school 
yearbook in a school that I teach at." 



Work it! 

Senior Sarah Haas works at the Alumni House 
on yearbook endeavors. While looking back 
on working on the yearbook, she commented. 
"The most enjoyable part of being on the 
yearbook staff is the end result. Flipping 
through the finished product for the first time 
makes all the long hours worth it."

Teamwork is Key! 

Sophomore Jenn Berkemann, senior Sarah Haas, junior Lauren 
Hettenhausen, and fearless leader Jeff Campbell gather to work on 
yearbook pages. Jeff asserted, regarding the yearbook's importance, "Tl 
Yearbook is a vital link to the history of this institution. Throughout the 
year we have so many descendants of our alumni contact us for 
information about their relative, wanting to know all we can tell them. 
Our first source for information is the yearbook." 



/VfcKewcfoee Review 




As events unfold each year 
on campus, the McKendree 
Review is there to capture them. 
Anyone on campus is welcome 
to submit a story to the Review, 
but there are staff writers and 
photographers who consistantly 
showcase their talent for 
reporting and capturing the 
news. A team of editors then 
looks over all the stories and 
photos submitted and puts 
together the final product 
which is distributed on campus 
every other week.

The spark of creativity rests 
within everyone and the 
Montage tries to capture that 
spark. Every year, McKendree 
students are asked to submit 
original works of art, poetry, 
prose and theater. These 
submissions are then reviewed 
by the editors and then 
compiled to create 
McKendree's literary magazine. 
The Montage is distributed 
annually in the spring free of 
charge.

helped stock food pantries and carved pumpkins for 
various areas on campus and in Lebanon. The Club 
also hosted the Second Annual Interact with Rotaract 
event, where local high school students were invited 
to a night of networking, brainstorming and 
community service. On the international service 
level, the Club began fundraising toward their 
$10,000 goal to raise money to support a program 
called READ (Rural Education and Development) 
Nepal; they plan to donate the money to purchase 
books for a village in Nepal that is trying to establish 
a library. Rotaract Secretary junior Lauren

McKendree University is home 
to 1787 undergraduate students 
and 960 graduate students. No 
two are alike; each is unique in his 
or her own way. Though we share 
common interests and the 
common bond as McKendree 
students, we are all different. We 
bring something special to the 
campus through our diversity, 
which, in turn, yields something 
entirely beautiful. Not only are we 
unique in regard to inner 
characteristics, but we are unique 
in appearance as well.

Usaful 



\yus-fel\ 

adjective 

Def: 1. being of use or service; 

serving some purpose; 

advantageous, helpful, or of 

good effect. 

2. of practical use, as for doing 

work; producing material 

results; supplying common 

needs 

Commercials, billboards, and 
endorsements bombard us in 
many ways everyday. The world 
of advertising continually 
surrounds us. At times, it opens 
our eyes to the otherwise 
unknown. Yet, when abused 
and overused, advertising can 
also be a constant pollutant of 
our natural environment. It has 
the ability to leave us with a 
lasting impression, especially the 
advertising in this book. 
Advertising can be a good thing 
to have. It exposes its audience 
to products and services of 
which it might otherwise be 
unaware. Plus, possibly more 
importantly, from a Yearbook 
Staff perspective, advertising 
helps raise funds to produce the 
book, an everlasting impression 
of McKendree University during 
the 2007-2008 academic year.

Jayme, I remember years ago you painting this quote on your bedroom wall, not knowing at the time how 
appropriate it was. 

Your dreams and hard work have gotten you where you are. The years you've spent at McK have been a 
wonderful time in your life. You've experienced your 1 3th year of band, your 2 1 st birthday, moving 
truckloads of furniture back and forth every semester, 1/2 price appetizers at Applebee's, sledding on the 
golf course, midterms, mountains of papers, ice storms, power outages, your trip to England, movie 
marathons, a tornado, "the deer" and your little blue car, and oh yeah, an English degree. 

The people you've met during your time at McKendree have been a true blessing and many have become 
your second family. Keep those people close to your heart; they've played a part in who you are. 

So as you move on to the next chapter, remember those who have loved, supported, and encouraged you 
along the way... and always remember where your story began. We're so very proud of you. 

Love, 

Mom, Dad and Jared 



It's been another fast four years... well, really, a 
fast twenty-one years. Cbanh you! Cbanh you! 

Cbank you, Cauren! You have brought us 

immeasureable joy and happiness. (JQe are so 

very proud of you for so many reasons. Dad 

says, 'Be good, behave, have fun." Mom says, 

Dig in, sweetie! Its a wonderful life." 

Cove you always, 

Hlways there -

This has been an interesting and very packed year. It feels like 
just yesterday that I began my final year at the new McKendree 
University. With student teaching during second semester, I felt 
uneasy about having time to get everything done. Together we 
managed and actually got the book most of the way done 
before the year ended. 

Looking back, I realize that this book has brought many 
relationships and opportunities that I would not have, had I not 
become involved. I have come to know more people at 
McKendree than I thought I would. These relationships have 
helped me become a stronger leader. I hope to take the many 
skills that I learned throughout the years of working on Yearbook 
with me into my teaching career. Never know, having a 
Yearbook background just might put me on top of the stack for 
an interview. 

I would like to personally thank Jeff Campbell, Lauren 
Hettenhausen, Sarah Haas and Tina Napper- without all of us 
working together we could have never accomplished another 
outstanding book. We almost finished everything before 
graduation, I think it might be a record! I think that we have 
improved our work output greatly. My best wishes go out to the 
2007-2008 staff in their future endeavors and good luck to the 
2008-2009 Staff! 



Looking back at the 2007-2008 McKendree University yearbook, it is hard 
to see where the time has gone. As l am writing this note, I have just 
finished my last exam of the Spring 2008 semester, and we are close to 
completing the yearbook. (Hooray!) It seems like it was only yesterday that 
we began preparation for this book in early Fall 2007, discussing theme and 
cover options. These first decisions not only set the tone for the book but 
also set the tone for remainder of the year. Collaboration on topics, paired 
with the divide and conquer method, allowed for everyone to take an active 
role in the completion of this book. 

The publication of volume 91 of the McKendrean marks my second year 
as a co-editor, and therefore second year that I am able to whole-heartedly 
thank co-editor Beth Newman, yearbook student worker Sarah Haas, 
proofreader Tina Napper, and yearbook advisor Jeff Campbell. They poured 
their hearts into yearbook endeavors and really took the initiative needed to 
successfully complete this book. I would also like to sincerely thank the rest 
of the yearbook staff for the time, effort, and dedication that they put into 
the production of the 2007-2008 yearbook. Though it is not a simple task, 
we worked together to get the job done. Working on a staff like this is a 
great life lesson in teamwork, dedication, and organization. To be quite 
honest, there is no way to do it alone Thanks to everyone who made this 
possible, especially those of you who kept me on my toes and kept the 
production of this book rolling. 

At one of our infamously fun workdays, l heard that the question of 
whether McKendree needed a yearbook at all had been raised in the 
University's administration; it was suggested that the yearbook be replaced 
with electronic storage of photos and news. While technology allows us to 
do great things, I would suggest that electronic storage is a great partner 
for the traditional yearbook rather than an easy replacement. There is no 
doubt that the yearbook is a great deal of work, but in the long run, l 
strongly believe that all of the work is worth it. There is just something 
refreshingly antiquated about looking through a yearbook; because of this, I 
am proud to call myself a member of the yearbook staff. Regardless of the 
future of the yearbook as we know it, l am thankful for the opportunity to 
have worked with a fantastic group of people on McKendree university's 
first, and hopefully not last, yearbook.
