on the line 

^^ not limited to adventure stories 
and mystery novels. Simple, every- 
day routines of University students 
overflowed with life-changing deci- 
sions. Despite adversity, which 
seemed to characterize the year. 
West Virginia University students 
had what it takes to overcome 

Increased tuition was the first 
obstacle for students in continuing 
their education. Loans and grants 
were much sought-after aid when 
in-state tuition increased $113 and 
out-of-state jumped $290. 

Academic careers of students came 
under fire when some were forced to 
decide between studies and jobs. 
Working to support themselves 
through the University, students fac- 
ed the challenge of combining 
employment with school and suc- 
ceeding at both. 

Seniors found themselves envied 
by underclassmen for being in their 
final year of school and by faculty 
for having the rest of their lives 
before them. Along with that envy, 
though, seniors discovered ap- 
prehension of what the future held 
and the problems of meeting final 
degree requirements, of arranging

job interviews and anxiously 
awaiting results. 

The University itself came under 
scrutiny as several of the schools 
were examined by Benedum Founda- 
tion panels in internal and external 
evaluations of the educational quali- 
ty of the programs. However, faculty 
leaving the University for better 
paying positions did not help the 
school's reports. Even less encourag- 
ing were the chances of the state 
legislature voting to increase funds 
for higher salaries. 

Students, especially business 
students, worried when increased 
enrollment in the schools created 
tougher competition for classroom 
seats as professors were not hired to 
meet course demands. 

Student Administration program- 
ming committees strove to combine 
big name entertainment with limited 
budgets to please both students and 
University administration. Concerts 
such as Alabama's, Duran Duran's 
and Lionel Hampton's and lecturers 
like John Houseman and Mike Far- 
rell were engaged for Mountaineer 
entertainment. The new Community 
Relations Committee had to improve 
the University's image with 
townspeople. cont

You Ve got what it 

Living up to the accomplishments 
and fame of the previous year's 
sports teams confronted University 

Memories of past trips to the Gator 
and Peach bowls and 9-3 records 
haunted the football squad as it 
prepared for the season. But, another 
9-3 season, which included a break- 
ing of an eight-year losing streak to 
Pitt and a win in the Hall of Fame 
Bowl, put to rest doubts of the squad. 

Rifle, swim and gymnastics teams 
also competed against past 

Apathy and decreasing member- 
ships created headaches for 
organizations which found 
themselves on the line. Interest- 
arousing ways, however creative and 
ingenious, were sought to keep alive 
groups such as honoraries. 

Competition for the mighty 
American dollar became too steep for 
a few area businesses. The losing 
fight for student and community 
business with disadvantages of the 
tight economy closed the doors for 

such as Seneca Crystal Inc., which 
had operated for more than 90 years, 
and Sidler's Uniform Center on High 

Disputes between labor and 
management put local workers on 
picket lines. C&P Telephone Co. 
operators and servicemen went on 
strike in August, adding to students' 
problems of moving into apartments 
with no phone service. Giant Eagle 
workers also joined picket lines in 
October to fight for higher wages. 

On the line were University tradi- 
tions. In peril, the University year- 
book faced an uncertain death 
because of growing apathy and low 
student participation. A close 
scrutiny of student interest determin- 
ed if the Monticola would survive. 

Characterized as hardy, uncon- 
querable fighters. Mountaineers ac- 
cepted the challenges brought on by 
studies, the economy and traditions. 
They accepted and surpassed expec- 
tations, proving to doubters and

on the line 

WALKS AWAY from a 
challenge. Mountaineers had that 
courage needed to face the struggles 
of the year. 

Living on and off campus 
presented troubles right away. 
Besides the typical lines for registra- 
tion and financial aid, picket lines 
were established at various 
businesses in Morgantown. C&P 
Telephone Co. employees went on 
strike for job security and wages; 
Giant Eagle workers struck later that 

In addition to the eyebrow-raising 
increase in tuition, parking fines in 
University lots toughened. Drivers 
learned the hard way to tow the line 
or be towed. Groans and sighs of 
despair were heard when the State 
Legislature raised to 19 the cutoff 
line for drinking alcohol. Confusion 
erupted when the state enforced the 
law allowing out-of-state University 
students 19-21-years-old and state 
residents who turned 18 on or before 
July 1 to drink if they purchased $10 
Department of Motor Vehicle iden- 
tification cards. 

Controversy about Homecoming 
elections spoiled the festivities for 
some. A shortage of ballots in- 
validated the election in which four 
constitutional amendments were 
considered, ruled the Judicial Board. 
The Homecoming queen selection 
was allowed, however. 

The University itself was forced on 
the line as its open admissions 
policy, class curriculum and salary- 
related faculty leavings were in- 
vestigated by studies such as the 
Benedum Foundation panels. A 
tightening of University admission 
requirements and hiring of more in- 
structors for crowded classes, 
especially business courses, were the 
goals of those studies. 

Elements of University life 
were on the line. Yet those threats 
did not stop students from mak- 
ing the most of their 

Jubilant celebrations remained 
controlled after the 24-21 victory 
against Pitt when ebuUiant Moun- 
taineers tore down the goal post 
and carried it to Old Mountaineer 
Stadium, where memories of in- 
tense clashes of the WVU-Pitt 
rivalry live on. Fans partied all 
night long in Sunnyside with city 
police out in full force. No violent 
eruptions of rowdiness occurred. 

The first block party in years 
was a huge success in the fall due 
to organized efforts of Inter- 
Fraternity Council members and 
citv police and University of- 
ficials. Students realized their 
behavior decided if future parties 
would be allowed. 

Pride in the Mountain State 
became tangible during Moun- 
taineer Week when craftsmen and 
artisans statewide gathered to 
teach about the heritage of West 
Virginia and the hardy spirit of its 

Responsibility was accepted by 
students; many, who for the first 
time managed apartments and liv- 
ing on their own. Maturity 
developed while meeting adversi- 
ty that emerged on campus, 
strengthening the Mountaineers 
that much more. 

Challenges to students came 
from all directions; yet Moun- 
taineers stood together to conquer 
the pressures. Firm friendships 
were made, ethics of profes- 
sionalism understood and 
knowledge needed for careers in- 
stilled as Mountaineers accepted 
the year's challenges and more. 

Quiet time for stu- 
dying lures 
students to the 
seven libraries on 
campus, especially 
during midterms 
and finals.

shutout of 
Virginia Tech?

An unusual 
twist to this year's 
activities was a 
shortage of 
ballots at the 
students' voting 
stations. Eight 
hundred ballots 
were printed by 
Student Ad- 

ministration, bas- 
ed on statistics 
from previous 
years. Due to a 
tremendous tur- 
nout, the polls ran 
out of ballots by 
early afternoon. 

Angle Biddle, 
chairman of the 
elections, regret- 
ted the inconve- 
nience caused to 
the homecoming 
candidates but ex- 
plained that the 
results of the elec- 
tions would have 
to stand because 
the alumni want 
to see a queen and 
the student ad-

stitution requires 
one week bet-

scenes for 

But some 
changes on cam- 
pus added worries 
to students' lives. 

The most ex- 
pensive change 
was the tuition in- 
crease enforced 
on all students. 
In-state tuition in- 
creased $113, 
from $462 to $575. 

"It's gone up 
too much," said 
Tionna DiRemigo, 
a Moundsville, W. 
Va., junior. 

While instate 
students viewed 
their increases as 
too much, the hef- 
ty $290 increase 
caused moans and 
disbelief for many 
out-of-staters. Tui- 
tion for them in- 
creased from 
$1180 to $1470. 

"I think instate 
tuition should be 
more aligned 

with out-of-state 
students," said 
Mark Dalessan- 
dro, a Somerset, 
Pa., junior. 

The increases 
helped compen- 
sate for budget 
cuts suffered by 
the University 
when the state's 
ordered cutbacks 
last year. 

Changes made 
by the University 
Senate included a 
new add/drop 
policy, the delete 
card and the 
grading system. 

The add/drop 
policy forced 
students to decide 
to keep or drop 
classes within the 
first week of the 
semester. A "W" 
was recorded on 
transcripts for 
later withdrawal. 
students had had 
until midterm to 

This new policy 
gave waitlisted 
students a chance 
to get into classes 
before the add 
period ended. 

Also enforced 

by many instruc- 
tors was the delete 
card which allow- 
ed them to delete 
a student from a 
class for nonatten- 
dance during the 
first sessions. 

Pluses and 
minuses appeared 
on transcripts for 
the first time in 
the fall. The new 
system allowed 
teachers to record 
more accurately a 
student's grade. 

Instead of 
receiving a warn- 
ing (or two or 
three), illegally 
parked drivers 
paid an automatic 
$10 fine. Less for- 
tunate drivers also 
paid a towing fee 
for their cars. 

Efforts to cut 
registration costs 
included the use 
of identification 
cards for four 
years instead of is- 
suing them each 

policies such as 
voting in student 
elections were 
forced then to 
change. Paid fee 
receipts were re- 
quired for voting 

because the old 
system of pun- 
ching holes to 
validate ID cards 
was ineffective. 

The removal of 
the old stadium 
bridge was met 
with mixed reac- 
tions by students. 
To many, it meant 
the removal of an 
eyesore. While to 
others, especially 
residents, it meant 
a tedious walk up 
and down 
treacherous steps

sleepily rolled 
over to turn off 
the harsh bbrrin-

As I, oh, so 
slowly opened 
one eye to peer at 
the clock's face, a 
gasp escaped me 
as I realized class 
would begin in 14 

Forget the

mascara or blush. 

After a vain 
search for the 
mate to my mud- 
dy sneaker, I 
decided dock- 
siders looked 
wonderful with 
sweat pants. A 
hurried look in 
the living room 
told me that my 
notebook was not 
under the coffee 
table where I had 
left it. 

By now I realiz- 
ed today was go- 
ing to be one of 
those days. Mur- 
phy's Law of 
anything that can 
go wrong will had 
struck again. 

From the kit- 
chen, a roommate 
skimming the 
Dominion Post 
called out that 
there was a 70 
per-cent chance of 
rain today. But the 
sudden pattering 
against the win- 
dows told me that 
rain had already 

Grumbling, I 
remembered my 
umbrella had 
failed to survive 
last rain and wind 
storm. Snatching 
my roommate's 
from the closet, I 
tried to convince 
myself that she 
would't mind, as I 
sneaked it out of 
the house. 

Running to 
class, I dodged 
shuffling elderly 
women, but by 
the time I reached 
Armstrong Hall, 
my sweats were 
drenched and 
mud splattered 
and my books 

Five minutes 
was all that I was 
late, but the an- 
noyed professor 
glared at me as I 
climbed over peo-

empty seat beside 

the far wall. 

Of course, the 
squish, squish of 
my water-filled 
docksiders, that 
loud mouth's 
"Hey, you're drip- 
ping on me!" and 
my tripping over 
some incon- 
siderate buffoon's 
books did not 
help matters. 

As I finally 
made it to the 
empty chair and 
gratefully sank in- 
to it, my professor 
called out to take 
out paper for a 

What else can 
go wrong today, I 
groaned, as vi- 
sions of the floor 
opening up to 
swallow me pass-

Hours later and 
after a lost um- 
brella, an argu- 
ment with my 
boyfriend, money 
eaten by the 
stamp machine, a 
missed French 
class and a near 
hit by an impa- 
tient driver in 
front of the Lair, I 
had a well- 
persecution com- 
plex. I just knew 
someone had it in 
for me. 

I cautiously 

walked home 
from Colson 
Library, where I 
had decided to 
safely study or 
hide, whichever 
way you look at it. 
With paranoia 
running high, I 
made it to the pro- 
tection of home 
only to discover 
the phone bill had 
come. I'm positive 
I didn't make 
$54.87 worth of 
calls last month. 

Needing sym- 
pathy, I dialed a 
friend's number 
and tearfully 
recalled the day's 
wrongs. A whiff, 
though, of 
something burn- 
ing in the kitchen 
ended the call as I 
made a wild dash

In Long-Standing ROTC Tradition 

was nothing 
new to West 
Virginia Universi- 
ty. ROTC at this 
university dated 
back to 1867, the 
same year that 
W V U was 

For 116 years, 
the program 
played a vital role 
in training men 
and women to 
become officers in 
the regular Army 
or Army Reserve. 

WVU's Army 
ROTC program 
was a course in 


and responsibili- 
ty. Contemporary 
leadership, the 
basis of the pro- 
gram, opened up 
career oppor- 
tunities for hun- 
dreds of men and 
women in ROTC. 

Cadets in the 
program took 
military science 
courses along 
with their regular 
college classes. 

The department 
of military science 
was staffed by 
military officers 
and n o n - 
commissioned of- 

ficers who were 
qualified and 
capable instruc- 
tors, making the 
unit a viable part 
of the University 

The program

ty scholars and

According to 
Capt. Allen Flem- 
ing, the unit's 
scholarship of- 
ficer, 66 area 
students were 
awarded ROTC 
scholarships by 
the Army. 

During the an- 

nual advanced 
summer camp at 
Ft. Riley, Kan., 
Cadet Curtis 
Parker was 
selected as the top 
cadet in nine 
states of the 2nd 
ROTC region. 

Continuing a 
tradition of 
military service,

tomorrow morning, that

noon and the phone bill due — daily 
pressures faced by students would 
have created screams and neurotic 
behavior in lesser folks. But when 
they seemed in the toughest situa- 
tion with deadlines at hand and their 
backs to the wall. Mountaineers 
always found that reserve of 
strength and willpower to complete 
that paper, project or program. 

Strange as it seems, it was as if by 
some secret agreement, students ac- 
cepted the unspoken challenge 
presented by their studies, pro- 
fessors, fellow students and the 
hallowed ground of history. Ivy- 
covered Woodburn Hall, to many 
students and alumni the symbol of 
learning at the University, dared 
students to saturate themselves with 
learning and to become responsible 
leaders of their intended profes- 
sional fields. 

Students accepted with en- 
thusiasm this challenge to their 
abilities. Spurred on by questions of 
their rights to belong. Mountaineers 
proved their right to stay — to stay 
in the institution that has earned the 
reputation of producing over- 

Tests of student resourcefulness 
and acceptance or rejection of an 
established system were in evidence 
right from the start — at class 
registration. Overcrowded classroom 
conditions had forced University ad- 
ministration to change enrollment 
policies. New add/drop periods for

classes were enforced. Students had ; 
one week after classes had begun to 
add a class and two weeks to drop a 
class. This new procedure made 
students decide quickly to remain in 
a class or to drop it while others 
could still seek admission to it. It 
eliminated waitlisting and unfilled 

Overcrowded conditions at the 
University, where more than 20,000 
students attended classes, were only 
one aspect examined by Benedum 
Foundation General Panels in an ex- 
haustive study of University policies 
and operations. The focus of these 
studies on academic quality included 
agriculture and forestry, human 
resources, journalism, business and 
economics, compulsory physical 
education and computers. 

Debate arose in the faculty senate 
about raising admission standards. 
From a grade point average of 2.0 to 
2.5 or an ACT score of 20, the stan- 
dard was eventually raised for in- 
state students while out-of-staters 
had to compile a 2.75 g.p.a. or score 
22 or better on the ACT. Educators 
contended that the raised admissions 
standards would add prestige to the 
University's reputation and would 
alleviate the overcrowding in the 

These examinations of the Univer- 
sity reinforced its continual search 
for improvements in an ever- 
changing society. 

Only with this attitude among the 
administration could Mountaineers 
say the University had prepared 
them for leadership roles in their 
proclaimed professions.

students to design their own

then obtain credit for their 
original work. 

Students used their re- 
search as springboards for 
admission to graduate 
schools or to land com- 
petitive jobs. They also 
found themselves in the en- 
vious position of making 
discoveries and having their 
work published in profes-

West Virginia University's 
College of Law developed a 
curriculum to produce at- 
torneys who understand the 
complicated rhetoric of law 
and the thinking of people. 

Established in 1878, the 
college is the oldest profes- 
sional school at the Universi- 
ty and has been accredited 
by the American Bar Associa- 
tion since 1923. 

The Law Center was con- 
structed in 1974 and houses 
four classrooms, a 300-seat 
practice courtroom and its 
own 137,000 volume library. 

Admittance to the college 
is based on past academic 
performance. Law School 
Admissions Test (LSAT) 
scores, recommendations 
and experience. 

Students are admitted into 
the school only during the 
first semester. 

First-year students must 
take courses involving legal 
research and writing. Torts I, 
constitutional law and 
criminal law. After the 
rigorous first year of study- 
ing, classes such as evidence.

The varsity squad for academics, 
The honors program promotes 

Academic fitness in classes 

Despite conflicting 
arguments, athletics and 
academics were more alike 
than people admitted. 
Outstanding athletes were 
selected to play on the varsi- 
ty team while excelling 
scholars were invited to par- 
ticipate in the University 
honors program. 

Honors students par- 
ticipated in classes 
characterized by enrollments 
of no more than 12, more in- 
tense course requirements 
and more independent work 
than in regular classes. 

Of the 268 students en- 
rolled in the program, more 
were freshmen and 
sophomores because up- 
perclassmen had more 
limited course options. 

The most obvious benefit 
of honors classes was the 
small class size. "You get to 
talk one to one with the pro- 
fessors and other students," 
said Becky Luchok, English 
junior. "They (the pro- 
fessors) know you personally 
which helps when you go in- 
to a professional school and 
need recommendations." 

To be invited into the pro- 
gram, high school seniors 
must have scored 27 or better 
on the American College 
Test. Freshmen must have at- 
tained a grade point average 
of 3.7 or better and have had 
no grades of incomplete or 
have withdrawn from a 
class. Upperclassmen were 

ineligible for enrollment 
because time limitations pro- 
hibited them from finishing 
program requirements. 

Completion of the honors 
program resulted in the 
designation as a University 
honors scholar at graduation. 
To reach that status, a stu- 
dent who had been accepted 
into the program completed 
27 hours of marked honors 

"In the honors 
classes, the pro- 
fessors know who 
you are. They know 
more from your 
class participation 
and of how much 
you know because 
tests don't always 
give you all the

classes: three of these hours 
were taken in a senior 
seminar class and no more 
than six were in a summer 
guided reading program. 
These 27 hours were to be 
counted as part of the 
University core require- 

Once admitted into the 
program, the honors student 
maintained satisfactory pro- 
gress as shown by his cu- 

mulative grade point 

Advantages of small 
classes included forming per- 
sonal relationships with pro- 
fessors and other students. 
Lauretta Nassif, marketing 
senior, said, "In the honors 
classes, the professors know 
who you are. They know 
more from your class par- 
ticipation; they've a better 
idea of how much you know 
because tests don't always 
give you all the feedback." 

Student/faculty mixers

Last minute exam cramming keeps 
Exhausted University students up 

Studying notes all night long 

Staying up all night with 
your nose in a book, who 
needs it? But, during the last 
week of each semester, 
students packed the tables of 
the Mountainlair cafeteria 
and the seven libraries on 
campus to do just that. 

A seat was hard to find 
between 11 and 1 — this 
time not because of the 
noontime lunch rush, but 
because of students burning 
the midnight oil. 

Finals came only twice a 
year, but even that was too 

Since a strong emphasis 
was placed on final exams 
in many classes, it was 
usually do or die for most 

"Mr. Coffee, give 
me strength!" 

Many weary-eyed 
students walked the 
streets of Morgantown 
like zombies on their way 
to classes; the cause was a 

lack of much needed sleep. 

Coffee intake increased as 
the level of awareness 
decreased. If you made it 
past 12 a.m., free soda was 
available in the Lair 
cafeteria. The few deter- 
mined students saw free 
doughnuts at 4 a.m. 

Yes, those nights of little 
sleep made up for the entire 
semester. But, each student 
had either Christmas break 
or the summer to get his 
nights and days turned 
around once again.

Maj. Gen. James L. Dozier checks 
out the University ROTC program

days, Dozier was held hostage by 
leftist guerillas in Italy in 1981-1982. 

"This (Admissions and 
Records) is the only office in 
the University that deals 
with every student," Schulte 
said. "You don't get admit- 
ted, receive your grades, or 
graduate unless you come 
through here." 

With thousands of 
students' names to check, 
folders to file and diploma 
envelopes to stuff, Schulte 
said the days leading up to 
commencement can be nerve 
racking. "I get very un- 
stable," Schulte commented. 

"This is the time of year I 
beat my wife, kick my dog 
and kick my child," Schulte 
jokingly commented.

constantly being returned to

something to break the monotony and 
tedium of studying. 

So they headed out to Cheat Lake, to 
the Lair Little Theatre, to the Blue Tic 
Tavern or to the Creative Arts Center to 
see the latest Studio Theatre 

Diverse opportunities offered enter- 
tainment for students, whether their 
tastes ran to a night out with the boys at 
the College Inn or to a more cultured 
evening listening to the works of 
Vivaldi and Mendelsohn or to an ap- 
preciation of fine acting from Debra 
Winger and Shirley MacLaine in 
'Terms of Endearment" shown at the 
Met Theatre. 

Regardless of where their interests 
lay, students found entertainment to 
break the humdrum routines of classes 
and studying. 

The Division of Theatre created 
worlds of laughter, tears and suspense 
with productions of "A Funny Thing 
Happened on the Way to the Forum," 
"Buried Child" and "Turn of the 
Screw." Newcomers to theatre were in- 
troduced to the art of make-believe, 
creating moods and scenes, by student 
actors such as Cindy Baniak, Jim Mcln- 
tire, Jane Baxter Miller, Dorothy Ours 
and Gordon Reinhart. 

Dance lovers were treated to in- 
novative and artistic interpretations of 
classical as well as modern music by the 
student dance troupes Mountain Jazz, 
Orchesis and the WVU Ballet. 

An assortment of theatre, dance and 
concerts by professional companies 
were brought to Morgantown by the

Theatre opened its season with a 
tale of the destruction and the 
misery of war in Euripides' The 
Trojan Women. Set in early fourth 
century B.C., this tragic drama re- 
counts the plight of the women 
who survive the attack and burn- 
ing of Troy only to become the 
slaves of the victorious Greeks. 

Strength among the women 
flows from Hecuba, Queen of 
Troy, played by Margaret Lerian.

■Recitals and ccncerts 
Add that bit cf culture 

If you would have wandered 
into any of the recital halls at the 
Creative Arts Center any week of 
the year, you would have found a 
mixture of people: professors, 
students and residents. Why? 

Recitals were presented by 
members of the faculty or 
students at the CAC. 

These concerts were performed 
almost every week and often two 
or three times weekly. Most 
students who gave recitals were 
fulfilling requirements toward 
their music degrees. 

CAC faculty members who 
performed often used the evening 
to showcase their talents to people 
outside the CAC community. 

Students by and large attended 
to fulfill course requirements for 
music classes like Music 30 or for 

humanities classes like Human- 
ities 1 or 2. 

Often they went because they 
had to, but when the performance 
was over, many were glad they 
had attended. "Frankly I had 
dreaded coming here, but it was 
actually nice to hear something 
different," said one junior. 

Faculty members, in and out of 
the CAC, usually attended to en- 
joy their peers perform or to listen 
to a former or current student 

One older woman explained 
why people outside the Universi- 
ty community attended the facul- 
ty/student recitals. "It's nice to be 
able to come and hear this kind of 
music and to see people from this 
community and this school 
display their talents. This is usu- 

ally the only place in Morgan- 
town where you can hear this type 
of music being performed." 

Besides the student recitals, 
numerous other concerts 
highlighted CAC entertainment 
and provided exciting memories. 

The University Symphonic 
Band and the University Com- 
munity Symphony Orchestra 
were always rehearsing for a 

No matter which instrument 
was a favorite, concerts by the 
University wind ensemble or the 
jazz ensemble suited all tastes. 

The percussion ensemble was a 
favorite of many on campus and 
in town with its lively, contem- 
porary music and showstopping 
finale by the marching band.

Bright lights, loud music, 
screaming fans, big stars and low 
ticket sales made up the 1983 Pop 
Arts season. 

Although top quality perform- 
ers were brought to the campus, 
like the number two group on the 
charts, Duran Duran, the fans just 
did not seem to be dishing out the 
bucks to see the entertainers. 

Neil Young, a former member 
of the popular 1970s group Crosby, 
Stills, Nash and Young, was the first 
to perform on the schedule of the 
Pop Arts Committee. He per- 
formed to a small but faithful au- 
dience. Young's talent was ex- 
tremely evident as the crowd 
cheered and clapped to the tunes. 

Despite the popularity with the 
fans. Young's concert was the first 
that Pop Arts lost money on. 

Alabama entertained a crowd of 
14,000 in September. Lead singer 
Randy Owens, decked out in a 
West Virginia University t-shirt 
and white shorts, instantly 
developed a good relationship 
with the audience. It did not take 
the group long to prove to fans 
that they were the number one 
country group. They sang such 
favorites as "Mountain Music," 
"Take Me Down," "Love in the 
First Degree" and "Feels So 
Right." Alabama's concert was the 
most successful of all the concerts 
the Pop Arts Committee spon- 

sored. The Coliseum was still buz- 
zing hours after Alabama left the 

Friday, October 21, Jackson 
Browne performed for 5,500 fans 
at the Coliseum. Browne played a 
variety of tunes both new and old 
like "Lawyers in Love" and "The 
Pretender." Unlike most other 
groups, Browne and his band did 
not use an opening group. As a 
result, they were on stage for 
more than two hours without a 
break. Even though the head 
count of the crowd was small, 
they managed to bring Browne 
back for three encores.

Duran Duran's lead singer, Simon Le Bon, 
energizes the audience with his perfor- 
mance of such hits as "Reflex," "Girls on 
Film," and "Blue Moon on Monday." 

When the date of ticket sales for the Duran

the Statler Brothers brought their

Coliseum to hear the group's 
famous hits like "Bed of Roses," 
"Whatever Happened to Ran-

Grave Loving You." 

On a snowy Christmas-like eve 
in February, the number two tour- 
ing group, Duran Duran, rocked its 
way into Morgantown almost un- 
noticed. All other concert spots on 
their tour were sold out; at WVU 
little more than 7,000 attended the 
concert. However, those who did 

attend got a real treat and a break 
from mid-terms. The main floor 
was festival seating, but everyone 
had an excellent seat because of 
the video screen above the stage. 
Christmas Past was the opening 
group, who played for about an 
hour. Then, Duran Duran elec- 
trified the audience for more than 
an hour with their hits such as 
"Hungry Like the Wolf," "Girls 
on Film," "Blue Moon on Mon- 
day" and others. 

In the Lair Ballrooms, the 
Thompson Twins entertained 
many fans April 15 with their hits 

like "Hold Me Now" and "Doctor

who performed their hit song, 
"The Politics of Dancing." This 
was the first concert of the year to 
be held in the ballrooms. 

All in all, it was big year for

Committee, but students were

its rise and decline, the Great 
Depression, his involvement with 
Mercury Theatre with Orson 
Welles and his work in theatre. 

Mike Farrell, well-known for 
his role as B. J. Hunnicutt on the 
long-running television series 
M*A*S*H, spoke before a sellout 
crowd in the Mountainlair 
ballrooms. Besides talking about 
M*A*S*H and its characters and 
actors, Farrell spoke about his con- 
cern for conditions in Southeast 
Asia and Latin America. 

Consumer advocate Ralph 
Nader lectured on his belief in 

citizens movements from civil 
rights to consumer rights. He 
pointed out that small groups of 
people initiate corrections for

Two guest choreographers, Joann

was selected to be performed in the Gala

Dedication and hard work of 
the University dance troupes, Or- 
chesis and Mountain Jazz, paid off 
with successful seasons. 

Orchesis members, with the 
direction of Mary Kathryne 
Wiedebusch, benefitted from a 
week long residency in the fall by 
professional dancer Joann 

The ensemble held its annual 
concert January 27-29, which 
featured "Loco Locus," an original 
number choreographed for Or- 
chesis by Fragalette-Jansen during 
her fall residency. 

Other numbers included 
"Galedon", a tribute to University 
football and basketball teams, 
"Showtime," "Sky," and "Eight 
Instrumental Miniature for 15 
Players and 29 Dancers," with 
music by Stravinsky. 

The 28-member modern dance 
company received special recogni- 
tion at the American College 
Dance Festival in Pittsburgh, 
where the troupe was among 
seven schools selected from 27 to 
perform in the Gala Concert. 

Orchesis participated in the 

West Virginia Dance Festival in 
Charleston and finished the 
season with performances at local 

The 26-member Mountain Jazz 
toured extensively and appeared 
on national television to highlight 
the season. 

A taped segment of the Vandalia 
Sampler, a nine-part series on the 
arts in West Virginia, featured 
Mountain Jazz in a broadcast na- 
tionally shown by one fourth of 
Public Broadcast Service stations 
in October. 

The program included "1984" 
and "Glass Interiors"; both dances 
were choreographed by artistic 
director Margaret Devaney. 

Choreography was the em- 
phasis during the fall semester 
when Devaney and students 
selected music and worked on 
dance routines. January was 
devoted to rehearsal for the 
February 2 and 3 concert at the 
Creative Arts Center. 

Dances for the annual perfor- 
mance included "A Conversation 
Piece" by Lori Anderson and 
"Show Some Emotion" by Joan 


A variation of the earlier per- 
formed "Glass Interiors" enter- 
tained the Concert Theatre au- 
dience in a piece named "Cut 
Glass," which featured music by 
Phillip Glass. 

"Sincere Ambition" was the 
finale for the performance. It was 
a five-piece suite jazz choreo- 
graphed by Lou Antonini. 

Five strong male dancers gave a 
new look to the female dominated 
dance troupe. Delaney said that 
one saw them growing and matur- 
ing technically. 

Mountain Jazz traveled more 
than 3,500 miles performing 
before hundreds of dance en- 
thusiasts. From Indianapolis and 
Philadelphia to Lewisburg, W.Va., 
the company toured. 

Extensively touring all over the 
state Delaney said, "I thought that 
West Virginia needed to be ex- 
posed to dance." 

Much time was demanded of 
the dancers for rehearsal and tour- 
ing. "I do ask a lot of them," 
Delaney said.

on the line 

lenge to Mountaineer athletes — 
to make that perfect dive, clear the 
hurdles, develop a powerful 
forehand return or pitch a no-hitter. 

Athletes had to prove to com- 
petitors, to spectators and, most im- 
portantly, to themselves that they 
had the drive and determination to 
push and reach for perfection. 

The challenge to better themselves 
and to know the scope of their 
abilities was faced at each practice, 
meet or game by men and women, 
trying to prove they were the best. 

Tests of individual merit as well as 
team effort were met by athletes. 
Running miles cross country or 
around a track allowed time for self- 
examination. Did they have the 
stamina and perseverance to train 
and compete? These Mountaineers 
could have refused the challenge, 
but their characters demanded that 
they do more than the typical stu- 
dent, that they somehow manage 
their time to combine classes with 

After much sweat, strained 
muscles and aching joints, the results 
were in from individuals and teams. 

Sophomore Georgeann Wells 
proved to herself and basketball fans 
that she could have been the first 
woman to dunk the basketball in col- 
legiate play. Unofficially, Wells 
made that basket in practices and in 
the last home game of the season on- 
ly to have a penalty called on the op- 
position and the basket ruled no 

Rifleman Dave Johnson's 
marksmanship was tested as the 
sophomore competed for the United 
States in the Pan American games 
during the summer. Gold and silver 
medal performances raised expecta- 

tions and added pressures for 
Johnson as the rifle team defended 
its NCAA championship title. 

Living up to past performances 
and achievements is a difficult task, 
especially when failure is expected. 

Such a predicament faced the foot- 
ball squad, who battled Pitt, Penn 
State, Boston College, and the 
University of Maryland as well as 
memories of 9-3 seasons with upset 
victories against the likes of 
Oklahoma and trips to the Peach and 
Gator bowls. 

A resounding 55-3 victory against 
Ohio University in the season 
opener planted seeds of hope in the 
Mountaineer team. 

Pandemonium erupted with the 
24-21 triumph against arch rival Pitt 
before packed stands of 64,076 in 
Mountaineer Stadium. 

Faith in the team grew as the 
Mounties climbed steadily in na- 
tional polls to as high as fourth 

As individuals shone in some 
sports, teamwork overcame trials in 
other competition. Combined efforts 
helped the basketball team through 
its unpredictable season. All the 
players shared the glory or heart- 
break of the games. Each time a dif- 
ferent player dominated the action 
whether it was Michael King, Lester 
Rowe, Tim Kearney, J. J. Crawl or 
Dale Blaney. 

Athletes depended on teammates 
to perform well whether they be 
members of a relay team or setter 
and spiker of the volleyball team. 
Trust grew among athletes as they 
learned to rely on their teammates to 
start a play or to finish one. 

Mountaineers met the challenge of 
competition as athletes proved they 
had what it takes.

With sweet victories over Pitt, Maryland, Otiio U., 

'Eers pass, tackle, run to Fame 

A 6-0 start propelled 
the Mountaineers to 
thek highest-ever na- 
tional ranking and 
allowed them to finish 
the season with a 9-3 
record which included 
a Hall of Fame Bowl 

West Virginia 
opened its season with 
questions hovering 
over its defense and ex- 
clamations over its of- 
fense. Coaches and fans 
knew that the 'Eers 
would be a force to 
reckon with offensive- 
ly, citing the return of 
Heisman Trophy can- 
didate Jeff Hostetler 
and Ail-American 
placekicker Paul Wood- 
side as two key factors. 

Defense was another 

story. The loss to 
graduation of several 
team leaders left many 
holes to be filled. 

WVU began its cam- 
paign with a 55-3 
thrashing of an out- 
manned Ohio Universi- 
ty team. The Bobcats 
led 3-0 early in the 
game, following a 24- 
yard field goal. 

The tide immediately 
turned, as Willie 
Drewery returned the 
kickoff 70 yards to set 
up a 1-yard touchdown 
run by Tom Gray. The 
Mountaineers never 
looked back. By the 
game's end, WVU had 
amassed a Mountaineer 
Field record 55 points 

Gray and freshman 

runningback Pat Ran- 
dolph each scored two 
touchdowns to lead the 
'Eers. Hostetler passed 
for 205 yards. An im- 
pressive defense al- 
lowed only 62 yards 
total offense in the se- 
cond half. 

The Pacific Tigers 
were the next team to 
be humiliated before a 
Mountaineer Field 
crowd. WVU scored on 
its first possession to 
take a 7-0 lead. Early in 
the second quarter, 
Woodside kicked a 
school record 50-yard 
field goal. 

At halftime WVU led 
20-7. The third quarter 
saw the 'Eers tally 28 
unanswered points to 
end the day's scoring. 

The 48-7 victory was 
highlighted by another 
strong defensive effort 
and another 200-yard 
passing day by "Hoss." 

The game at College 
Park, Md., was billed as 
a battle of the quarter- 
backs — Maryland's 
Boomer Esiason vs. 
Hostetler. Each passed 
for more than 200 yards 
but was twice in- 
tercepted during the 

After spotting the 
Terrapins a 10-0 lead, 
Hostetler and company 
rushed back to score 24 
points before a silent, 
stunned Maryland 
crowd. A national au- 
dience, vvatching WTBS 
saw the 'Eers hold the 
Terps at bay, 31-21.

the Panthers, 24-21. 

West Virginia scored 
first on a touchdown 
pass from Hostetler to 
Wayne Brown. Later, 
Hostetler was sacked, 
and a Pitt defender 

picked up the ball to 
run 75 yards for a 
touchdown. Pitt scored 
again in the first period 
to lead 14-7. Trading 
touchdowns made it 
21-14 at the half. Pitt 
would not score again. 

A Woodside field 
goal from 49 yards out 
made the score 21-17. 
In the fourth quarter, 
the Mountaineers 
drove 90 yards and 
scored on a 6-yard run 
by Hostetler to clinch 
the team's first victory 
against Pitt since 1975. 

After a week off, the 
Mountaineers returned 
to action in the 
Homecoming game 
against Virginia Tech. 
The game was a defen- 
sive struggle, won 13-0 
by the 'Eers. WVU 
squandered two scor- 
ing chances with a fum- 
ble at Tech's 1-yard line 
and an interception in 
Tech's end zone. 

Mountaineer hopes 
of an unbeaten season 
crashed in Beaver 
Stadium, as the defen- 
ding national cham- 

pion Penn State hum- 
bled the fourth-ranked 
Mounties, 41-23. 

WVU managed to 
stay close to the Lions 
early in the game, trail- 
ing twice by less than a 
touchdown. In the end, 
the breakdown of the 
Mountaineer defense 
gave PSU its 25 con- 
secutive win over the 

The Mountaineers 
suffered their second 
loss, 20-3, to the 
University of Miami, 
Fla., the eventual na- 
tional champions. 

WVU scored a field 
goal on its first posses- 
sion but could not score 
again. The Hurricanes 
used their home field 
advantage and a strong 
defensive effort to stop 
the Mounties. 
Although Hostetler 
passed for 208 yards, 
the ground game 
covered only 40 yards 
on 29 carries. 

West Virginia then 
returned to Morgan- 
town to take on Tem- 
ple. A balanced attack 

— 180 yards rushing; 
175 passing — gave the 
'Eers a 27-9 victory 
against the Owls. 
Despite rain and low 
30s temperatures, 
placekicker Woodside 
booted a 50-yard field 
goal, tying his own 
school record. 

Hostetler passed for 
279 yards despite cold

WVU to a 35-7 shellack-

upped the team's

undefeated home

The Mountaineers

Trailing Kentucky 10-3 at ttie half, 

Woody kicks win into WVU hands 

In a third consecutive 
bowl appearance, the 
Mountaineer football 
team traveled to Birm- 
ingham, Ala., to play in 
the Hall of Fame Bowl. 
This December 22nd 
bowl matched West 
Virginia against a 
border rival, the 
University of Kentucky 
Wildcats, coached by 
ferry Claiborne. A 
sparse crowd of about 
30,000 braved the rigid 
temperatures to watch 
the battle. 

Strong defense by 
both teams made the 
first quarter slow. A 
55-yard punt return 
had Kentucky eyeing a 
touchdown, but the 
Mountie defense once 
again surrendered no 

West Virginia later 
picked up a Kentucky 
fumble. Ten plays mov- 
ed the Mountaineers 

closer to the goal line 
before they were stop- 
ped and had to settle 
for a 39-yard field goal 
by Paul Woodside. 

Mountaineer quarter- 
back Jeff Hostetler 
threw an interception 
at the start of the sec- 
ond period. The 
Wildcats, with quarter- 
back Randy Jenkins, 
then made a speedy 
50-yard drive for a 
touchdown in eight 

While West Virginia 
still could not generate 
power, Kentucky added 
another three points on 
32-yard field goal to 
give the Wildcats a 10-3 
lead at the half. 

The turning point of 
the game came on the 
opening kickoff of the 
second half. Surprising 
everyone, especially 
Kentucky, Paul Wood- 
side both kicked and 

recovered an onside 
kick, giving West 
Virginia needed 

A series of eight 
plays ended with a 16- 
yard touchdown pass to 
Rich HoUins. Two un- 
successful possessions 
apiece left the Moun- 
taineers and Wildcats 
tied at 10 at the close of 
the third quarter. 

West Virginia open- 
ed the fourth period 
with a drive for 81 
yards and a touchdown 
highlighted by four 
pass completions and a 
37-yard run by 
Hostetler. Kentucky 
next threw an intercep- 
tion to Tim Agee who 
ran it back to the Ken- 
tucky 11. The Wildcat 
defense held, though, 
and Woodside added a 
field goal of 22 yards. 

Although behind 
20-10, Kentucky did not 

quit. Reserve quarter- 
back Bill Ransdell led a 
92-yard drive for a 
touchdown. A missed 
extra point left the 
score 20-16. Kentucky's 
final drive of the game 
ended when a fourth 
down bomb was barely 
missed by an open 

Many Mountaineer 
players made out- 
standing performances 
in the Hall of Fame 
Bowl. Most noteworthy 
were tailback Tom Gray 
who rushed for 149 
yards and Hostetler 
whose much improved 
second half passing and 
rushing earned him the 
Most Valuable Player 

West Virginia fin- 
ished at 9-3 for the 
third consecutive 
season, while Kentucky 
fell to 6-5-1.

Running for glory, harriers rally 


Beating all odds and coming out on top 

Winning was not un- 
familiar to the Univer- 
sity cross country 

Third-year coach 
Marty Pushkin's squad 
of 12 harriers proved 
themselves worthy by 
copping the Atlantic 10 
title and competing for 
the national title. 

Returning lettermen 
included seniors Ed 
Burda, Steve Kaldon 
and Mark Neal. Soph- 
omore standout Joe 
Wangugi also num- 
bered big in cross coun- 
try wins. 

Bright spots among 
the freshmen were

Virginia Tech and Penn 

Invitational meets 
were not to be denied 
to the Mountaineers 

either. They came in 
first at the Penn State, 
California, Pa., and 
West Virginia Invita- 
tional meets. 

Hosting the Atlantic 
10 meet at the Meadow 
Pond Golf Course paid 
off for the Moun- 
taineers. They won the 
October 22nd meet 
with Penn State and St. 
Joseph's coming in 

Taylor won the five 
mile event in 25:51. 

The Mounties 
showed up the com- 
petition by finishing 
one-two-three in the 
race and putting six 
runners in the top 10. 

The win marked the 
first A-10 champion- 
ship won by WVU. 

The 9-4 harriers com- 
peted for the first time 
since 1968 for the na- 
tional title. WVU 
qualified for the 
Bethlehem, Pa., meet 
with its third place 

finish in the District II 
Region's meet. 

The goal for the run- 
ners in nationals had 
been to finish in the 
top 10, but that hope 
died as the team fin- 
ished 22nd nationally. 

The women's team 
raced to a 33-5 record 
with first-year coach 
Pat Nicol as mentor. 

Outstanding return- 
ing lettermen were

high-lighted by perfor-

ished third.

mental outlook for the

"I don't want them (the 
runners) to look back 
on the season with any 
regrets. I don't want 
them on the ride home 
to say 'what if I had run

these hard-working 
runners were ranked

The University's soc-

eason. They chalked

The team played only

tion outside of Morgan- 
own, not only in the

eason, making several

The leading scorer 
for the team was Fer- 
nando Santos. He 
played in 17 games, 
scoring 26 points for 
the season, with 10 
goals and 6 assists. 

Ashy Mabrouk was 
the team's second- 
leading scorer. His 
season score of 4 goals 
and 2 assists earned 
him 10 points. 

Goalie George 
DeAlmeida played in 
15 games, averaging 1.4 
goals per game. 
However, he ac- 
cumulated 66 saves for 
the season, averaging 
4.4 saves per game. 

The Mountaineers 
did well on home turf, 
winning five of their 

seven home games, los- 
ing one and tying one. 

Their good wins 
came against Pitt and 
Marshall University, 
whom they beat 2-1 
and 2-0 respectively. 

One of the Moun- 
taineers' seven losses 
came from Loyola Col- 
lege. The team could 
not get its defense 
together, allowing 
Loyola to surge ahead 

The Mounties' of- 
fense was not up to 
standard either, as 
Loyola's defense al- 
lowed them to score 
only once with an 

Another heartbreak- 
ing loss came at the 

hands of Penn State at 
University Park, Pa. 
Again, the Penn State 
defense, with its 
home-field advantage, 
was outstanding, 
preventing the Moun- 
ties from scoring goals. 
When it was all over, 
the Nittany Lions had 
scored 2 goals to go up 
4-1, when the Mounties 
kept themselves from 
being embarrassed by 
scoring with an assist. 

WVU's only tie of the 
season came in a home 
game against Bethany 
College. Neither team 
could score, even 
though the game went 
into overtime. The final 
score was 0-0.

Top 20 schools check grapplers 

West Virginia's grap-

season by hosting the 
West Virginia Open at 
the Coliseum. 

Individuals and 
squads representing 15 
different schools 

Standouts were Thad 
Turner in the 158-

Wilbur Wolf in the 
190-pound, both win-

Dual match competi- 
tion started at

Clarion and Arizona, 
both Top 20 schools, 
were next, but WVU 
fell short of victory 
with a team score of 
10-21 against Clarion

The Maryland Tour- 
nament at College Park 
saw West Virginia earn 
fourth place honors. 
Notable performances 
were turned in by Bill

Milestones and disappointments add up to 

An ** almost" season for roundballers 

An almost season — 
that summed up the 
women's basketball 
team. The women came 
close to but never fully 
attained some 
preseason goals. 

The Mountaineers 
opened their season 
against national 
powerhouse Tennessee 
in a game played in 

Strong defense was 
the key to this game as 
the heavily favored 
Volunteers barely 
managed to escape with 
a 52-47 victory over 

The Mountaineers 
went on to win nine of 
their next 11 games, in- 
cluding important vic- 
tories over Marshall, 
Georgia Tech and 

George Washington. 

The win against 
Georgia Tech, 86-78, 
came in the South 
Florida Christmas 
Tournament where the 
women survived the 
competition, making 
their way to the cham- 
pionship game. They 
then fell to Tennessee- 
Chattanooga, 50-49, on 
a controversial last- 
second shot. 

West Virginia players 
insisted that the win- 
ning shot was taken 
after time had expired, 
but the game's officials 
allowed the basket to 

After a big victory 
against Alderson- 
Broaddus, 108-42, the 
women went on a 
disappointing road trip 

— losing four of their 
next five games. 

Arch rivals Pitt, Penn 
State and Virginia Tech 
captured three of those 
victories as WVU saw 
its record drop to 10-7 
for the season. 

A four-game win- 
ning streak was capped 
with a 75-70 triumph 
against a strong Penn 
State team before an ex- 
cited Coliseum au- 
dience. The win was 
the first victory against 
the Nittany Lions in 
the history of Moun- 
taineer women's 

A surprising loss at 
Rhode Island was 
followed by encourag- 
ing home victories over 
Duquesne, 86-67 and 
Massachusetts, 77-64. 

The latter game 
almost saw history 
made when Georgeann 
Wells became the first 
woman to dunk a 
basketball during a 
game. The historic 
basket, however, was 
nullified by a foul that 
was committed before 
the shot. 

Ironically, a Minute- 
man player had run 
into Marva Wells, 
Georgeann's sister, to 
commit the foul. 

A national "dunk 
watch" began, but 
Wells was unable to 
repeat her feat before 
the season ended.

ropes and universal 
gyms were major tools 
utilized by fitness 

Some people wished 
to shape up on their 

own without the 
rigidness of a coach 
overseer. For the or- 
dinary student, getting 
physical was an easy 
and convenient task for 
those who desired it 
badly enough. Private 
health clubs with 
universal gyms, saunas, 
whirl pools and exer-

popular. Towers dor-

the luxury of weight

For the rifle team, ex-

rather than the excep- 
tion, so there was 
nothing unusual about 
a 1983-84 season that 
saw the team bring 
home a second con- 
secutive national cham- 
pionship, while seven 
marksmen earned AU- 
/^merican honors. 

The stellar cham- 
pionship performance 
ivas merely a continua- 
:ion of the regular 
season that saw the 
:eam go undefeated in 
13 matches, thus 
engthening its string 
3f consecutive wins to

was named to the first

made up the WVU 
eight-man delegation at

on the campus of Mur-

Kentucky. In keeping 
with the Mountaineer 
rifle traditions for

was the largest from 
any single school. 

Also in keeping with 
Mountaineer tradition, 
it left several marks in

top qualifying scores in 
both events. 

"We expected to 
win," Anti said. "Win- 
ning the championship 
meant a lot because it 
was something the 
team did. It's pretty ex-

same people day to day 
and accomplish 
something like this."

Winning streaks,

heart-stopping vic-

the men's basketball 
season of never end-

With two seniors 
and one junior on 
the team, the Moun-

ed on the younger 
players adapting to 
the pressures of ma- 
jor college ball. 

West Virginia 
opened the season 
November 28 with a 
73-46 triumph over 
Indiana, Pa. before a 
home crowd. 
Sophomore J. J. 
Crawl was the 
game's top scorer 

with 14 points despite 
coming off the bench. 
The game was never 
close, as the Moun- 
taineers opened up a 
33-19 halftime lead. 

A trip to Huntington, 
to play state rival Mar- 
shall proved to be a 
nightmare when the 
Thundering Herd 
dominated the first half 
of the game, building 
an 18-point lead. 

The Mounties played 
better in the second 
half but were unable to 
overcome the Herd's 
lead. A statewide

Tim Kearney was the 
Mountaineer behind 
this triumph, with a 
16-point scoring effort. 

A Coliseum record 
was set when the 
Mountaineers commit- 
ted only five fouls dur- 
ing the game. 

Nevada — Las Vegas 
was able to have its 87-

traveled across the 
country only to come

an 86-72 score. Turn-

a promising year was

one senior the previous 
spring, seven returning

tively, in the Moun-

ranking ever receivsd 
by a WVU swimmer. 

Debbie Scott and Kim 

Kaufman were also na-

impressive against 
LaSalle University, 
handing LaSalle its first 
loss of the season. 

John Critchfield, Tim 
Pheland, Al Kitto and 
Cooper won the 400- 
yard free style event 
with a time of 3:12.21, 
clinching the win for 
the Mountaineers.

the 4X800-meter relay 
team. They did so well 
that they were the only 
WVU team to be in-

Milrose Games. 

WVU had done well 

in New York. The 1982 
team even managed to 
finish first. 

The men's team ran 
well in its outdoor 
season also. 

The Mountaineers 
compiled seven meet 
records and qualified 
two relay teams for the 
IC4A championships. 
West Virginia 
dominated the meet 
with 91 points. 

The 4X100-meter

qualified for the IC4As 
in 41.3 seconds. They 
went on to establish a 
meet record in 4X200-

In field events, Cecil 
Tout and Matti Pentilla 
each jumped 6 feet, 8

The women further 
showed their winning 
spirit by breaking or ty- 
ing five records at the 
Atlantic Coast Relays. 
As a result, nine 
tracksters qualified for

WVU set records in 
both the 100- and 200-

Armed for battle on the courts 

Tennis teams net smashing years 

The University ten- 
nis teams had a suc- 
cessful year, pulling off 
winning seasons. The 
women sustained only 
four losses and amassed 
an impressive 13 wins. 

To top off their win- 
ning season, the 
women placed third in 
the Atlantic 10 Tourna- 
ment. The losses suf- 
fered by the women's 
team included a bad 
one to Penn State, 1-8, 
and a close match to 
Morehead State, 4-5. 

But overall, the 
women were im- 
pressive on the tennis 
court. The players in- 
strumental in carrying 
the team through the 
year were seniors Lori 
Burdell and Maureen 


Burdell proved her- 
self invaluable to the 
team. During her last 
three seasons with the 
team she amassed an 
incredible 63 wins with 
only 18 losses, a record 
unmatched by any 
other player on the 

Burdell and her 
doubles partner, Druga, 
helped WVU earn 10th 
place in the 26 — Team 
Eastern Collegiate Ten- 
nis Tournament. WVU 
tied with the Colgate 
team. The duo finished 
third out of a field of 49 
doubles teams. They 
successfully beat teams 
from Penn State, 
Rutgers and James 

The men's team, 
though not as im- 
pressive as the women, 
did manage to have a 
winning year as well. 
Their final record was 
21-10. The team began 
its fall season well, 
finishing fourth in the 
eight-team Bloomsburg 
State Invitational. 

Three of WVU's 
players, Keith Caster- 
lin, John Prokity and 
Rob Sheets reached 
semi-final matches 
before losing. 

Though the team suf- 
fered some losses to 
Virginia, 1-8, and Navy 
4-5, it also had some 
moments of brilliance 
such as the shut-out 
win over nearby rival 
Fairmont State, 9-0. 

Instrumental in help- 
ing the team to victory 
were singles players 
Sheets, Prokity, 
Casterlin, Kevin Ball, 
Doug Small and John 
Nilsen. Doubles win- 
ners were John Moore 
and Tim Albert, who 
defeated Bill Piseitelli 
and Rick Karp, 7-5, 7-6. 

The Mountaineers 
21-8 record qualified 
them for the National 
Invitational Tourna- 
ment. Although they 
lost in the first and se- 
cond rounds, getting to 
the tournament was in 
itself an accomplish- 
ment because it was the 
first time the men's 
team had qualified for 
post-season play.

not received its share of

But Mountaineer 
fans were proud of 
their baseball team 
with its record of 

Graduation had 
stolen many of the 
team's key players. 
Among those were 
catcher Doak Hoen- 
stine and pitchers John 
Holshey and Tony Rug- 
ghia. The pitchers were 
particularly missed 
because they were the 
mainstay of the team. 
For the previous two 

years, they compiled a 
record of 29-9. 

However, the team 
managed to pull itself 
together, thanks to the 
skills of sophomores 
Kent Hilton and Bobby 
Watts. Hilton proved to 
be an all-rounder, 
displaying abilities not 
only in the outfield, but 
also at bat, with a bat- 
ting average of .373. 

The team closed out 
its fall season with a 
15-7-1 record. One of its 
losses came at the 
hands of California, Pa. 
Pitcher Jim Walls 
started the game, giv- 
ing up only one run. 
Phil Digiacinto also 
gave up a run. Bobby

enough. California 
scored in the bottom of

on the line 

advice to students was to enjoy 
their time at the University. College 
years were to be the best of their 
lives, when they had youth and 
youth's romantic dreams and adven- 
turous spirit. 

For many freshmen entering the 
University, it was the first time away 
from home and family. Handling the 
sudden freedom and its responsibil- 
ities were lessons learned outside the 
classrooms by Mountaineers. 

Waves of loneliness swept over 
freshmen from time to time but as 
friends were made and they became 
involved with University activities, 
the homesickness subsided. 

But making friends wasn't all that 
easy — just ask any shy freshman. 
Opening up to a stranger who was to 
be your roommate for the next year 
of your life was not the most natural 
thing to do. But, after that initial 
fight or over the first shared beer, it 
seemed as if he had been with you 
through thick and thin for most of 
your life. 

Being a friend was just as impor- 
tant as having a friend. To be there 
for a buddy who was really upset 
with a professor for demanding 
perfection on all assignments or for a 
girlfriend who was worried about 
her brother not settling down to his 
studies was important. To listen to 
the worries and fears of a roommate 
was to be a worthy friend and was 
one step closer to being a true Moun- 
taineer. To defend a pal from verbal 
or physical abuse was that close and 
protective loyalty one Mountaineer 
had for another. 

Causes — whether it was a 
political theory or human rights in 
Latin America — were strongly 
believed in and fought for by Moun- 
taineers. Perhaps the more un- 
popular or smaller causes were even 
better, for Mountaineers dearly 
loved the position of underdog. It 
made success all the sweeter. 

Mountaineers were a closeknit 
family. Just to mention that you at- 
tended West Virginia University 
won instant approval. Students, it 
often seemed, wanted to get to know 
each of the 20,000 students who at- 
tended the Morgantown campus. 

On the campus an unwritten code 
mandated to upperclassmen to make 
freshmen feel at ease. While walking 
from White Hall to Oglebay Hall, 
those you passed all looked you in 
the eye, smiled and said "Hi!" 

The first few classes with more 
than 100 students enrolled created 
feelings of insignificance, but the 
first couple of people you talked to 
whether to comment on a movie 
showing at the Lair or to discover 
what the homework for the day is 
made you feel like you belonged. 

Belonging — that's what it was all 
about. Fraternities, Student Ad- 
ministration, the Daily Athenaeum, 
honoraries all clamored for the atten- 
tion of Mountaineers. All had the 
basic theory of "Get involved; get to 
know the University and the people 
who make it work." 

Happiness at the University was 
found by those who relished the ac- 
tive, caring lives of Mountaineers, by 
those people who discovered they 
belonged at the University. 

A quiet moment 

together is difficult 
to find, especially 
on a busy campus, 
but this couple 
manages to find a 
spot in front of 
Oglebay Hall.

ment grabs hold of

Roommate — best pal or worst foe 

Roommate (rum-mat'); one 
of two or more persons occu- 
pying the same room. At 
WVU there are the following 
types of roommates: the com- 
patible but spatable, the 
touch my stuff and I'll break 
your face, the masters of 
mess, the friends forever, 
and the white glove testers. 

The compatible yet 
spatable wake up every mor- 
ning on the right side of the 
bed. They regard each other 
as a close friend except when 
they want to scratch the 
other's eyes out. Any fight 
could result in either one 
having his or her own room 
by death of the other. 

The touch my stuff and I'll 

break your face roommates 
start out by sending hate 
mail during the summer. 
The first thing that moves 
into the room is a dividing 
line. Even the door is divid- 
ed right down the middle. 
These roommates are not on- 
ly incompatible but also 
vicious. God save the one 
who crosses over that white 

Usually art majors are the 
highly compatible masters of 
mess. For this team to work 
out, both parties must be 
slobs. No floor, walls, closet 
or bed space may be seen. 
However, these people are 
extremely frugal; nothing 
gets thrown away. 

Everything lands on the 

Always together and dif- 
ficult to separate are the peo- 
ple who hang out with their 
roommates, the friends 
forever roomies. These peo- 
ple get along so well that 
almost anything goes and 
they will still be buddies. 

Finally there are those 
neatness fanatics, known as 
the white glove testers. 
Every inch of their rooms 
would pass a hospital health 

Note that the mixture of a 
master of mess and a white 
glove tester would result in

Peace - just imagine . 

Some people shunned 
them because of the futile 
idealism they seemed to 
radiate. Others embraced 
them because of the glimmer 
of hope they enflamed. 

The peace groups of West 
Virginia University, never- 
theless, became a part of the 
social and political fabric of 
the campus. Although 
everyone was a peace ad- 
vocate, these people were 
peace activists. 

Some of the action 
resulted in debate, and 
perhaps the most vocal of 
these echoed the West 
Virginia University Forum 
on World Peace when in 

November the nuclear freeze 
advocates came together 
with the war resisters to hold 
one of the largest events of 
its kind in the nation. 

At quieter moments, 
smaller groups would gather 
for candlelight vigils at the 
Morgantown Court House 
square. Reminiscent of the 
1960s, their buttons would 
read "Bread not bombs" or 
"What if they gave a war and 
nobody came?" 

The loudest statement, 
however, came from the 
ones that read "Wearing but- 
tons is not enough." That's 
the sentiment that sunk in. 

— Asra Nomani 

Cries for peace ring out over the 
campus from time to time. This 
evidence of peace activists' work 
decorates the chemistry library.

Senioritis — it's not as grand as you think 

While everyone who was 
not a senior sat around and 
envied those of us 
graduating, they also com- 
monly believed that we 
seniors got senioritis. They 
thought that we were for- 
tunate because our grades 
didn't really count anymore 
for we would be out of here 
in a few weeks. 

There was another side. 
Undergraduates didn't need 
to worry about the LSAT, 
GRE, MCAT, and GMAT, just 
to name a few. In prepara- 
tion for those post-senior 
years, we were getting ready 
for graduate school or pro- 
fessional life. And par- 
ticularly for those in the lat- 
ter category don't forget 
those resumes and job 

Certainly some element of 
senioritis did exist, if and 
when the last standardized 
test had been passed or the 
letter of job acceptance had 
been received. 

Then the senior could 
relax somewhat, although, 
most graduate schools and 
places of employment re- 
quired that the student 
finish up with grades "con- 
sistent with past per-

Hard work, countless hours of stu-

Explore, enjoy and preserve 

"Explore, enjoy and 
preserve." This was a motto 
of the Sierra Club, a 
wilderness preservation 
organization. "Explore, en- 
joy and preserve" could also 
have been a motto for West 
Virginia University's forest 
within a town, the Core 

Explore. The Arboretum in 
a very real sense, was an out- 
door lab. The Arboretum was 
used by many classes, in- 
cluding biology classes and 
dendrology classes. The 
biology classes studied how 
different elevations affected 
the types of trees and shrubs 
growing in the Arboretum. 
Since several hundred 
species of native West 
Virginia trees, shrubs and 
herbaceous plants were 
found in the Arboretum, it 
was an excellent lab for den- 
drology classes. 

John Denning, a forestry 
major, said, "The Arboretum 
is a great place for practical 

exams because it has the 
names of all the trees posted 
so you can learn to identify 
the trees by their bark and 
their leaves." 

Enjoy. Many students as 
well as the general 
public used the Arboretum 
for rest, relaxation and infor- 
mal education. 

The three and one-half 
miles of hilly trails were also 
used by hikers and runners. 
In the spring, morning bird- 
watching walks and plant 
identification lectures were 

Jenny Andrews, a nursing 
major, commented, "1 like to 
go there in the afternoon 
when it's nice outside to 
relax in the grassy areas. 1 
also enjoy hiking on the 
trails and looking at the trees 
— it's a quiet, comfortable 
place to study, too." 

Preserve. In 1948 the land 
for the Evansdale Campus 
was purchased. August 4, 
1948 a 75-acre tract of open 

field, wooded hillside and 
low, moist bottom land was 
set aside as the University 
Arboretum. This area has an 
elevation drop of approx- 
imately 200 feet and has a 
variety of natural habitats, 
This land was officially 
dedicated and opened to the 
public May 8, 1954. 

Then July 1, 1975, the 
WVU Arboretum was of- 
ficially named the Core Ar- 
boretum to honor the chair- 
man of the committee thai 
founded the Arboretum — 
Dr. Earl L. Core. The Core 
Arboretum was open from 
dawn to dusk for everyone 
to "explore, enjoy and

Big Brother is here 

When George Orwell 
wrote 1984, I'm sure he 
didn't bargain for Orwellian 
to become part of the English 
language in the 1980s. 

As New Year's Eve 
ushered in 1984, jokes and 
puns about Orwell's book 
had bombarded people and, 
halfway into the year, had 
rendered folks helpless 
under the onslaught. 

It became commonplace to 
hear and see "Big Brother." 
Signs, bumper stickers and 
posters attested to the 
popularity of the novel. 

"Be careful," one might 
have joked to a friend, "Big 
Brother is watching." In- 
deed, he was. And no one or 
no thing was safe. According 

to a "Family Weekly" article, 
even the IRS was being 
watched by Big Brother. 

University classes were 
swept up in the wave of 
1984ism. English classes and 
economics courses required 
the book for their reading 
lists. University Book Stores 
were well stocked for the de- 
mand but were soon sold out 
of the novel. 

Cartoons, and newspaper 
features capitalized on the 
popularity of 1984. 

As government became 
more and more involved in 
our lives, as Orwell 
predicted, people were well 
aware that Big Brother was 
indeed watching.

Graduation takes $ 


For seniors, commence- 
ment held special meanings. 
The culmination of years of 
hard work, it was time to 
enter the real world to pay 
off college loans and debts. 

Graduation meant the end 
of paying outlandish text- 
book prices and expensive 
lab fees. An average student 
would have spent more than 
$25,000 for education and 
living expenses. 

However, before the 
ceremonies were completed, 
students may have spent 
$400-500 on graduation and 

Much time, work and money have 
made graduation possible. Proud 
families and friends capture the joy 
of commencement outside the 

related functions. 

Pre-commencement costs 
added up to more than 
pocket money. Graduation 
announcements may have 
cost about $10-20. Class rings 
cost several hundreds, 
especially if they were made 
of gold with precious or 
semi-precious stones. Caps 
and gowns cost an additional 

Of course, one could not 
forget the new suit or dress 
and shoes for the ceremony. 

All in all, graduation was 
the end point of a long col- 
lege career, but it was, by no 
means, the least expensive 
point of that career.

Politicians, it seems, are all around us 

David L Zicherman 

As the state primary elections ap- 
proach, campaign signs crop up all 
over Morgantown, including in an 
empty lot on University Ave. in 

Although a growing 
number of political groups 
became active on campus, 
many of them would 
undoubtedly fade with the 
passing of the 1984 general 

However, two political 
groups which maintained 
their active status even in 
non-election years were the 
College Republicans and the 
Young Democrats. 

According to Lisa Bixby, 
president of the Young 
Democrats, the organization 
"does a considerable amount 
of fundraising in the off 
years so that they may co- 
sponsor events such as the 
Jennings Randolph 
Retirement Dinner." 

The Young Democrats 
worked in conjunction with 
the Monongalia County 

Executive Committee in 
promoting the candidates of 
the Democratic Party, she 

Another group equally 
active on campus was the 
College Republicans. 
Headed by chairman 
Raymond Joseph, the 
College Republicans stressed 
"the need for a viable two 
party system within the 

"We represent an alter- 
native to those who feel that 
there is a need for a change 
in state government," he 

Although both groups had 
distinctively different ideol- 
ogies, they shared a common 
goal — that of promoting 
political awareness among 
students at the University.

others to take charge of their 
lives, some students had too much 
drive and ambition to sit back and 
watch others. These students chan- 
neled their energy into interests out- 
side of classes. These people were 
the ones who joined the marching 
band. Student Administration and 
tried out for the cheerleading squad. 

Fighting a nationwide apathy, 
organizations struggled to maintain 
active memberships, but it seemed 
that a certain few became the core of 
the groups, strengthening them. 
Those certain few were bound to 
become futui-e leaders. 

Organizations also had to compete 
with paying jobs. Students did not 
join these activities for monetary 
gain. Rather, they were interested in 
the friendship value and the 
experiences offered. But paying 
employment lured many students 
from participating in groups. 
Students had to decide if their 
schedules and finances allowed time 
for these activities. 

Freshmen took advantage of 
groups to become acquainted with 
others and University life. They 
joined with the intentions of 
building relationships for they 
realized that college years teach the 
importance of friendship as well as 
academic knowledge. 

Interests in music — rock, classical 
and jazz — dance, art and politics 
propelled students to join Student 
Administration, the administration 
and the programming aspects of the 
student government. Students who 
wanted to help decide who and what 

entertained the student body at the 
University applied for the Program- 
ming Advisory Board or one of the 
nine programming committees such 
as Fine Arts, Pop Arts or Forum 

Enthusiastic and loyal students 
dreamed of being Mountaineer 
cheerleaders. These highly visible 
spiriters fired up the stands of 
shoulder-to-shoulder fans, starting 
the chants of "Let's goooo Moun- 
taineers!" This closeknit group 
cheered on the Mountaineer teams 
through tears of victory and of 
despair whether it was the 24-21 
football triumph over Pitt or the 74- 
70 overtime loss in basketball to 
Atlantic 10 rival St. Joseph's. 

Music lovers yearned to be 
members of the marching band, 
"The Pride of West Virginia." The 
popularity, precision and unity of 
the band symbolized to many the 
spirit of the University. Memories of 
funfilled times, the close friendships 
and of trying times, the long, hot 
afternoons, wearing heavy, suf- 
focating uniforms, bonded students 
together, giving them something to 
cherish about the University long 
after they had been graduated. 

Alpha Phi Omega, a service frater- 
nity, attracted students with 
altruistic principles of helping 
others. APO service projects in- 
cluded sponsoring a used book sale, 
helping elderly townspeople, work- 
ing with blood bank drives and rais- 
ing funds for such as the Students 
for Students, which created an 
emergency relief fund for interna- 
tional students.

Pride, dedication and 
Hard work lead to an 

Outstanding season 

Nicknamed the "Pride of West 
Virginia", the Mountaineer 
marching band highlighted pep 
rallies, parades, and every home 
football game. Many long, hard 
hours of practice assured the 350- 
member marching band of yet 
another outstanding season. 

Practice started with band camp 
a week before the fall semester. 
Once classes began, practices con- 
tinued eight to ten hours weekly. 

The pregame show consisted of 
many drills which the band had 
become known for such as a run- 
ning entrance, the double WVU 
pattern, an expanding circle drill, 
and two state outlines. 

Halftime shows were filled 
with new and innovative music 
and drills. Some were correctly 
labeled "impossible moves" by 
Don Wilcox, director, and Dave 
Satterfield, assistant director. 

The "Pride" was not restricted 

to Morgantown city limits. 
Besides performing at the 
Maryland and Penn State away 
games and various cities enroute, 
the band delighted audiences 
throughout the state. 

The final performance came at 
the Hall of Fame Bowl in Birm- 
ingham. The musicians practiced 
for four days at a high school field 
and entertained many West 
Virginians at pep rallies prior to 
the game. Though temperatures 
were well below freezing at the 
game, the band left the field to a 
prolonged standing ovation. 

Marching and music skills were 
learned and perfected in the band. 
However, most band members 
will tell you that they endured the 
long hours of practice in rain, heat 
or cold, because there's no thrill 
quite like bringing over 50,000 
spectators to their feet.

Celebration is in the air for new SA 
leaders Bill Benincosa and Pat Kelly during 
the announcement of their victory in the 
February elections. 

A sense of humor in the Presidential 

Office and in campus policies gives 

A new twist to SA 

Known for outstanding can\- 
paign behavior, the Student Ad- 
ministration team of Bart French, 
president, and Ron Tickle, vice- 
president, led the student body in 
a year of quick wit and bizarre 

Concerned with the problems 
faced by the student body, the ad- 
ministration was distinguished by 
its humorous outlook. 

A typical look of the untypical 
pair included the appearance in 
the Homecoming parade of 
French and Tickle seated in the 
back of a pickup with a hatrack 
complete with a stuffed squirrel 
perched atop. 

The administration was involv- 
ed, however, with proceedings in 
the state legislature. 

Student leaders made several 
trips to Charleston to talk with 
legislators about the future of 
higher education in the state. 
These pieces of legislation includ- 
ed a 7.5 percent pay raise for facul- 
ty and staff, expansion of seating 
and facilities at Mountaineer Field 
and funding for a new University 

Student officials spoke in op- 
position of a bill that would raise 
the state's drinking age from 19 to 
21. But they also promoted an 
alcohol awareness program for all 

Relations between the Universi- 
ty and the community were a ma- 
jor concern of French's ad- 
ministration. With the help of the 
newly formed Community Rela- 
tions Committee and Morgan- 

town officials, a street fair was 
organized early in the fall to set a 
tone of cooperation between the 
townspeople and students. A 
ride-along program was also 
started for students to ride and 
walk with city policemen to 
observe policework from an of- 
ficer's point of view. 

The Board of Governors for the 
fall term included Rick Barr, Bill 
Benincosa, Martin Easley, Sandra 
Gray, Ronnie Justice, Pat Kelly, 
Teresa Lewis, John Miesner, Mike 
Oliverio, Jay Reckart and Krissy 

In February, elections were held 
for the student body to select a 
new administration. After weeks 
of being flooded with posters, 
banners and buttons, the students 
chose Pat Kelly of Wheeling, W. 
Va., and Bill Benincosa, of 
Clarksburg, W. Va., as their new 
president and vice-president, 

Early in their term, Kelly and 
Benincosa proposed to the student 
body a plan to save the playing 
surface of Old Mountaineer 
Stadium and a suggestion to con- 
vert part of the Mountainlair 
plaza into a playing field to ac- 
commodate flag football and soft- 
ball games. 

Members of the new Board of 
Governors for the spring were 
Greg Boyd, Sherri Cross, Todd Ga- 
ziano, Anthony Majestro, Pat 
Mason, John McDermitt, Marsha 
Miesner, Bill Pritt, Becki Roberts,

Ladies and gentlemen, this evening's 
Performer for the featured entertainment 

Is brought to you and WVU by . 

Through the efforts of the Pro- 
gramming Advisory Board of Stu- 
dent Administration, a variety of 
entertainment was brought to the 
University. Under the direction of 
Lauretta Nassif, PAB was compos- 
ed of the chairpersons from nine 
committees in charge of selecting, 
promoting and presenting 
cultural, social, educational and 
recreational activities. 

Perhaps the most well-known 
PAB committee was Pop Arts. Per- 
formers such as Alabama, Jackson 
Browne, Neil Young, Duran 
Duran and the Thompson Twins 
were sponsored by PAB. Pop Arts 
also sponsored the annual Air 
Band Contest. 

Under the direction of chair- 
man Tom Leach, members plan- 
ned publicity, hospitality and 
dressing room setup. 

A second committee, Contem- 
porary Arts, brought such per- 
formers as Lionel Hampton, the 
Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra, 
the Cleveland Quartet and the 
i\lvin Ailey Dance Ensemble to 
the Creative Arts Center. Chair- 
man Tod Craft said the committee 
tiad no problem with funding. 

nka Anderson 

Three sources — students fees, the 
state and grants — funded Con- 
temporary Arts. 

"Tootsie," "Flashdance," and 
"48 Hours" were but a few of the 
movies presented by the Films 
Committee. The committee also 
sponsored a series of videos in the 
Blue Tic Tavern and showed "Pink 
Floyd" free of charge at the 
Sunken Garden. Jan Long served 
as chairman. 

Creating an awareness of cur- 
rent ideas and issues was the objec- 
tive of the Forum Festival Commit- 
tee. The committee brought 
Seymour Hersch, John Houseman 
and several peace advocates for 
Peace Week. Springtime speakers 
included Willie Stargell, Mike 
Farrell, Ralph Nadar, EUie Smeal 
and Peter Lance. Chairman was 
Antoinette Bates. 

Fine Arts Committee, headed by 
Bonnie McBee, sponsored exhibits 
in the Mountainlair Art Gallery. 
One of its major programs was a 
Booker T. Washington exhibit. 

Stark Raven, Bond Street 
Theatre Coalition and Second City 
Comedy Troupe were but a few of 
the groups sponsored by Mini 

Events Committee. Mini Events 
brought novelty, variety and com- 
edy type musical entertainers to 
the University. Combining with 
Forum Festival Committee, the 
committee brought Mike Farrell 
of "M*A*S*H." Tim Long served 
as chairman. 

Special Events Committee spon- 
sored a variety of student ac- 
tivities aimed at promoting school 
spirit. Among such activities were 
a Pitt car smash, the Homecoming 
parade and pep rally and Spring 
Week. Robin Blunt served as 

Under the direction of Charles 
Hagerty, the Recreation- 
Intramural Sports Committee 
planned and organized both 
men's and women's intramurals. 
A bus trip to Penn State was 
another project of the committee. 

The Progressive Arts Commit- 
tee presented free weekly enter- 
tainment at such places as the Blue 
Tic Tavern, the plaza, E. Moore 
Hall lounge and Towers. Headed 
by Teresa Peterson, Progressive 
Arts presented such performers as 
the Edge and the Ya Ya's.

Fifteen spirited cheerleaders 

Psych up University fans 

David L Zicherrr 

Sitting in the student section at 
a University football game is 
proof enough that University 
students are a spirited bunch. 
Such spirit can be partially at- 
tributed to the efforts of fifteen 
students — 14 cheerleaders and 
the Mountaineer. 

The cheerleaders began their 
new season with the Blue and 
Gold game in the spring of 1983. 
This game served to orientate the 
new cheerleaders. 

Serious preparation for the 
season, however, did not begin 
until August, when the cheer- 
leaders attended camp at Virginia 
Tech. In addition to preparing the 
cheerleaders for the upcoming 
year, camp allowed them to meet 
and compete with other schools. 
In these competitions, the squad 
made the final top 10 in the East. 

Through football and basketball 
seasons, the squad participated in 
many fund raisers, banquets, 
parades and community affairs. 

Members of the squad included 
JoAnne Harvey (captain), Wendy 
Gellner, Becky Barfield, Rebecca 
Miller, Delaine Rice, Beth Iden, 

Teresa Peterson (V2 year), Tim

on the line 

taineer life was the Greek com- 
munity, which gave students a sense 
of belonging and many oppor- 
tunities for getting involved with 
the University. 

The 23 fraternities and 12 
sororities on campus attracted those 
students interested in knowing as 
many people as possible. Friendships 
were highly touted as a benefit of 
pledging Kappas, Phi Sigs or Tri 

Much emphasis was placed on the 
value and eternity of sisterhood of 
Chi Omega or Alpha Delta Pi and the 
brotherhood of Alpha Gamma Rho 
or Phi Kappa Psi. 

Fraternal life opened many 
avenues for developing social lives. 
Besides the parties among the frater- 
nities and sororities, local bars often 
sponsored Greek Nights when 
Greeks received specials on drinks. 

Early in the fall, freshmen were 
bombarded with propaganda to join 
a sorority or fraternity. Rush Week 
allowed interested underclassmen to 
investigate the numerous fraternities 
and sororities on campus and to see 
if they belonged in the Greek social 

During Rush, students were enter- 
tained by skits and small get- 
togethers where the brothers and 
sisters could get to know the many 

Joining a fraternity solved for 
many the problem of housing once 
they left the residence halls. This 
easy solution attracted many 
students to the large houses. 

Social activities of Greek life were 
highlighted by the first block party 
held in years. Cooperation among 

the city police, the Inter-Fraternity 
Council and the sororities and frater- 
nities guaranteed the successful 
event and paved the way for future 
block parties. 

Listeners, date parties and formals 
brightened the year for many in 
fraternities. Hay rides, beach parties, 
and golf parties created diversions 
from studies. Formals sparkled for 
Greeks, taking them to Pittsburgh, 
Charleston, Uniontown, to the 
Montmartre or just to their own 
decorated houses. 

Fiji Island, a traditional party for 
Phi Gamma Delta brothers, was the 
talk of campus with its cave, palm 
trees and lagoon. 

Kappa Alpha's formal. Old South 
Week, was a look into another cen- 
tury as the brothers donned pre- 
Civil War garb and accessories to 
create an antebellum mood for days. 

Sororities and fraternities all had 
philanthropies for which they raised 
money in any number of ways. 
Alpha Xi sorority sponsored Breathe 
E-Xi Week during which competi- 
tions among fraternities helped raise 
money for the state American Lung 

The Anchor Splash held by the 
Delta Gammas for Aid for the Blind 
and Sigma Chi's Derby Days were 
other fundraisers popular with the 
fraternities and sororities. 

Greek life dangled many lures to 
students wanting to add another 
dimension to their lives, wanting to 
know the benefits of friendships that 
were to last for years, and wanting to 
get involved even more with the 
University. Greek life had what it 
takes to become more involved 


Philanthropies and 

fundraisers in- 
volved much time, 
planning and 
energy of frater- 
n i t i e s and 
sororities. Glenn

Sixty years and still going 
strong. Alpha Delta Pi celebrated 
its 60th birthday. 

Highlighting this festivity was 
a visit by the National Grand 
President Jane Madio and Pro- 
vince President Judy Reemsnyder. 
Chapter President Barbara 
Cassell's members achieved many 
individual honors. Sister Becky 
Schultz was president of 
Panhellenic Council. Beth Osen- 
ton was named a finalist for Ms. 
Mountaineer contest. 

The girls teamed up with Alpha 
Gamma Rho during Homecoming. 
They constructed a float and par- 
ticipated in the various competi- 
tions of the event. 

During the year, numerous 
charity organizations were reci- 
pients of Alpha Delta Pi's spirit 
and generosity. The girls held a 
pancake feed to raise dollars for 
the Ronald McDonald House and 
sponsored a blood drive during 
Greek Week. 

The girls' winter formal was 
held at the Chestnut Square while 
the spring spectacular was at 
Lakeview Country Club. 


Typical sorority life thrives at the Alpha 
Delta Pi house. 




Members of the Alpha Xi sorori- 
ty were certainly not brought up 
with the adage that children 
should be seen and not heard. 
Alpha Xi's made sure that they 
were seen and heard wherever 
they went on campus or in 
whatever they were involved 

Alpha Xi Deltas were a force to 
be reckoned with as they teamed 
up with Kappa Alpha for 
Homecoming events. This win- 
ning combination captured first 
place honors for designing and 
building the best float for the 
"Mountaineers Through the 
Year" themed event. 

Alpha Xi member Lauretta 
Nassif was chosen as a candidate 
for Homecoming queen. 

The girls were concerned with 
the welfare of others. They par- 
ticipated in numerous activities 
for charities and fundraisers. For 
the sorority's own philanthropy, 
the girls worked and publicized 
Breathe E-Xi Week competitions 
for the American Lung 

The Alpha Xi's also got in- 
volved with the charities of other 
sororities and fraternities. They 
competed in and won Derby Days, 
the philanthropy of Sigma Chi. 
The 90 girls of Alpha Xi worked 
together to win the downtown 
collection, skit and banner con- 
tests. The girls helped the Sigma 
Chi's raise $5,500 for Morgantown 

Alpha Xi's enjoy countless parties at their 
house on Spruce Street.

aware of their presence in all 
Greek activities. 

The girls entered Homecom- 
ing competitions with their part- 
ners the Sig Eps, They won the 
Gov. Jay and Sharon Rockefeller 
look-alike contest. 

The Sheraton Lakeview pro- 
vided the room, food and music 
for the winter formal while the 
girls went to the Charleston 
Marriott for the spring formal. 

Donations for the Heart Fund, 
the philanthropy of the Alpha 
Phi's, were raised with the se- 
cond annual Alpha Fiesta, which 
offered a grand prize of a trip to 
the Bahamas. Another fund 
raiser was a Mountie Men's Legs 
Contest which sought to deter- 
mine the pair of best looking 
male legs on campus. Alpha 
Phi's raised more than $500 for 
the Heart Fund. 

The sorority also joined in 

Derby Days, the fundraiser com- 
petions sponsored by Sigma Chi 
for the Morgantown Hospice. 
The girls won the Dress-A-Sig 
event in which they costumed 
their Sigma Chi coach better and 
with more creativity than other 
sororities. They also won the 
Derby Chase competition. 

Two fraternity sweethearts 
were members of Alpha Phi. 
Sigma Phi Epsilon chose Mindy 
King as their favorite while the 
Sigma Chi sweetheart was 
Allison Tribbie. 

Alpha Phi date parties includ- 
ed a beach party with Kappa 
Kappa Gamma at the VFW and a 
New Year's Eve party at 
Chestnut Square.

Chi Omega 



Have you ever been picked up 
by a school bus for a date? 

The dates of Chi Omega sisters 
received just that treatment for the 
sorority's "Chi-O-High" theme 

The girls sent out invitations to 
their dates directing them to 
designated bus stops where 
Monongalia County school bus 
drivers picked them up and chauf- 
feured the dates to the Chestnut 

Appropriate attire for the party 
included football uniforms, 
cheerleader, teacher and graduate 

The girls participated in Derby 
Days, a fundraising competition 
which the fraternity Sigma Chi 
sponsored for the Morgantown 
Hospice, which provides nursing 
and support services to the ter- 
minally ill. Chi O's finished third 
among all the sororities on cam- 
pus. They held a car wash, spon- 
sored street collections and gave 
up meals at the house to donate 
money for the Derby Darling. 

The Holiday Inn in Uniontown

Cancer Fund.

The close ranks of sisterhood 
was what Delta Delta Delta was all 

Walking anywhere on campus, 
one could identify a Tri Delt by 
her quick smile, goodnatured per- 
sonality and willingness to help 

The Delta Delta Deltas were 
concerned with the misfortune of 
others, children especially. Trips 
to children's wards at hospitals 
and fundraisers for children's 
charities were organized. 

The Tri Delts capitalized on the 
physical fitness craze that swept 
the nation and the West Virginia 
campus as well. The girls com- 
bined students' desires to stay in 
shape with a fundraiser. The Delta 
Run was organized to raise money 
for the sorority's philanthropy, 
the Children's Cancer Fund. 

The members of the Delta Delta 
Delta sorority were not solely in- 
terested in others, though. The 
girls enjoyed date parties, 
listeners and winter and spring 
formals as well. They participated 
in the Greek Week competitions 
and Homecoming also. The sorori- 
ty was paired with Pi Kappa 
Alpha for the "Mountaineers 
Through the Years" competitions. 

Many of the Tri Delts live at 650 Spruce St.

The fire of strength was ht 
when the sisters of Delta Gamma 
celebrated their mortgage burning 
at the Sheraton Lakeview April 

Three hundred chapter alum- 
nae and their spouses were pre- 
sent for this special occasion. A 
scholarship was also awarded to a 
chapter member at the time. 

The girls participated in 
Homecoming activities with 
members of the Phi Psi's to win 
the cheering competition. 

The winter formal was held at 
the Lakeview and the spring for- 
mal took place at the Georgetown 

Delta Gamma members pros- 
pered richly from their fundrais- 
ing events. The Anchor Splash 
was successful. Fraternities on 
campus helped the event by com- 
peting in raising money and par- 
ticipating in swimming relays 
held at the Natatorium March

first place in the Anchor Splash.

Twenty-seven girls made up the 
local chapter with eight living in 
the house at 591 Spruce St. 

With a small number of active 
sisters. Gamma Phi Betas formed 
close-knit relationships with all in 
their sorority. 

Homecoming competitions had 
the team of Gamma Phi Beta and 
Sigma Nu. This winning combina- 
tion captured the most original 
float award during the Homecom- 
ing parade. 

Derby Days competitions, spon- 
sored by Sigma Chi for Morgan- 
town Hospice, set up strong 
rivalries among the sororities on 
campus. Gamma Phi Betas placed 
third in the blood drive. 

A scholarship picnic in April at 
Marilla Park allowed the girls to 
enjoy one last get together before

194 Interfratemity Council 

The governing body of the 
University's 23 fraternities, the 
Interfratemity Council was made 
up of the president and one 
representative of each fraternity. 

Working with the leaders in 
each fraternity, the IFC 
accomplished much during the 
year. The council was more than a 
watchdog that supervised the 
activities and behavior of Greeks 
and made up rules and fines for 
fraternities. Rather, it organized 
the Greek social system, paving 
the way for activities which one 
fraternity alone could not do. 

The year was highlighted by 
the first Belmar Avenue block 
party in three years. Greeks, city 
officials and police worked to 
bring about the tremendous 

Many Greeks participated in the 
spring's Greek Week, which 
promoted brotherhood as well as 
fed rivalries between competitive 

A seminar for chapter treasurers 
was organized by IFC, as was a 
luncheon with the popular 

campus speaker Dick Purnell, 
who spoke on leadership. 

IFC issued a newsletter for 
fraternities for the first time and 
assigned a committee for 
fraternity purchasing. 

Statistics about the Greek 
system, which had not been 
collected before, were catalogued 
and distributed.. 

More and more Greeks became 
involved with IFC and its 

The council devoted most of its 
attention to membership 
recruitment. It organized a 
seminar on Greek life to be 
offered to incoming freshmen 
during orientation. 

IFC and Panhellenic, the 
governing body for sororities on 
campus, put together the first 
Rush booklet in five years. 

The IFC was headed by an 
executive board, made up of five 
Greeks selected by the council. 

IFC worked throughout the 
year searching for Mountaineers 
able to accept the Greek 


Kappa Alpha was an order with 
a tradition of high personal 
achievement. The brothers of 
Kappa Alpha lived up to their 
high traditions, socially, in- 
tramurally and academically. 

In the fall, T.G.I.F. parties and 
the annual luau met with success. 
The brothers' theme parties in- 
cluded a hot tub party, graffitti 
party and imported beer night. 

The KA fall formal was at the 
Elks Club with a steak and cham- 
pagne picnic held the following 
day at Chestnut Ridge. 

In the spring the traditional Old 
South Ball was one of the biggest 
formals on campus. The four-day 
event included serenading 
sororities, a Farmers Ball at the 
house and a Plantation Ball and 
Bloody Mary Picnic at the Cool- 
font Resort in Berkeley Springs. 

Intramurally, KA maintained its 
competitive reputation. If they did 
not win the Intramural Cup, they 
were in the finals. 

KA's captured first place in the 
Homecoming float contest. They 
were partnered with Alpha Xi 

The brothers were known for 
helping out the needy. With Chi 
Omega, Kappa Alpha held a 
Christmas party for under- 
privileged children at their house. 
They also raised more than $300 
for the Muscular Dystrophy 

President of the Kappa Alphas 
was Gregory L. Hager with Mark 
Brandt as vice-president and Greg 
Caruso as recording secretary.

Homecoming for the KDs was a 
joint effort with the fraternity 
Kappa Delta Rho. 

The girls' national philanthropy 
was the prevention of child abuse. 
By saving aluminum cans and 
with street collections, much 
money was raised. 

They also worked toward help-

program and the Rape and

A fraternity for life — that was 
the motto of the brothers who 
were the Phi Delta Theta 

As freshmen going through 
Rush, these men recognized 
something was different about the 
Phi Delta Theta fraternity. It stood 
out in their minds as a distinct 
group of brothers who seemed 
genuinely interested in and 
concerned with those who visited 
their house. 

As pledges, the men were 
introduced to the world of Greeks. 
Besides getting to know the other 
Phi Delta Theta brothers as they 
carried out house duties, the 
pledges became familiar with the 
hallmarks of the Greek system. 
Phi Delta pledges enjoyed date 
parties, listeners and impromptu 
affairs at the house. 

They also participated in 
charitable activities — for their 
own philanthropy as well as 

Once initiated into the 
fraternity, a brother was accepted 
as a Phi Delta Theta, as one who 
had passed the challenges and 
requirements of Rush and pledge 
training. He had chosen the one 
fraternity for him — Phi Delta 
Theta — a fraternity for life. 

The brothers who belong to a fraternity for 
life live at 209 Belmar Ave. 

198 Phi Delta Theta 




The brothers of Phi Gamma 
Delta had an active year. Fiji in- 
itiated 28 new members, making it 
one of the youngest and fastest 
growing fraternities on campus. 

Adam Vernou, president of the 
Fijis, was only a sophomore. 

In the intramural department, 
Fijis left a 7-0 regular season mark 
in basketball, led by G. Q. Mills. 
Fijis also recorded a hard earned 
third place in the DG Anchor 

Highlights included the Black 
Diamond formal at the Holiday 
Inn, Uniontown, the Homecom- 
ing graduate dinner, parents day, 
the Fall Retreat and their 10th An- 
nual Pig Dinner at the Hotel 
Morgan, where founder Terry 
Wolfe was recognized for his ef- 
fort to renovate the chapter house. 

Parties? They entertained 1,250 
people at their campus bashes. 
What year could have passed 
without Fiji Island, complete with 
lagoon, cave, volcano. King Fiji, 
King and Queen of the Palm Trees 
and deadly purple passion? 

Fijis placed in a not-to-be- 
forgotten category: Egbert and 
Bearman Battles, The Russian 
Judge 6.2, Fat Man Dinners, Hey 
Little Birdy, Smite Nite, The 
Supreme Being, Ph Industries, 
Mandrea, the Chairman of the 
Party, Jon, Rocky, Smiley, Mic and 

Some of the most active Greeks on campus 
live at the Fiji house on Belmar Avenue. 

Fiji Island brings palm trees, a lagoon and 
a tropical atmosphere to the Phi Gamma 
Delta house in the spring.

200 Phi Kappa Psi 




The men of Phi Psi were known 
for their generosity and their 
well-planned parties. 

During the past 10 years, the 
brothers raised more than $7200 
for their philanthropy, the 
Leukemia Fund. The Phi Psi's 
sponsored their annual five-mile 
run for Leukemia near the Med 
Center as the fundraiser. 

Homecoming saw the fraternity 
brothers team up with Delta Gam- 
ma for the competitions and to 
win the cheering award. 

Parties, parties and more parties 
highlighted the year. In the fall a 
Roman orgy, featuring a pool, 
laural decorations, togas and a 
cookout, headed the party list 
with Halloween, GIFing and 
tailgating parties running close 

The spring had in store a 
Gobel's Golf Classic held in tradi- 
tional garb at a local golf course. 

The 98 active brothers and 25 
pledges followed the leadership 
of first semester president Steve 
Talbott and vice-president Matt 
Mazanek. Ed Harrah and Larry 
Cavallo took over for the second 
semester as president and 

The local chapter of Phi Psi was 
established on the Morgantown 
campus in 1890. 

Fifty-four brothers live in the Phi Psi 
house, which is one of only two frater- 
nities with a chapel separate from the

202 Phi Sigma Kappa 




Taking the year by storm, the 90 
brothers of Phi Sigma Kappa did 
not allow the grass to grow under 
their feet. 

The brothers started the year 
out right by having one of the 
largest pledge classes in recent 
years. About 38 men were 
activated by the Phi Sigs. 

Thirsty for competition, the Phi 
Sigs competed in Homecoming 
activities with Chi Omega. 

The Mountaineer Week 
competitions were swamped by 
winning teams of Phi Sigs. 
Besides winning the PRT cram 
and ice cream eating event, the 
Phi Sigma Kappa brothers won 
the overall competition with the 
organization of their teams by 
Scott Becker. 

For the fraternity's philan- 
thropy Cystic Fibrosis, the 
brothers had a GIF in the spring. 

Date parties and listeners 
ranked high on the Phi Sigs' social 
calendar. A trashed suit party, for 
which the brothers bought used 
suits at the Salvation Army, was 
enjoyed. In December the 
brothers held their Moonlight 
Ball. Alpha Xi Susie Rodriguez 
was named Moonlight sweetheart. 
The spring formal was held at 
Wisp Ski Resort at Deep Creek, 

In charge of the activities and 
direction of the Phi Sigs were 
Russ Delcore, president, Chad 
Mcintosh, vice-president, Eric 
Schramm, secretary, and Mike 
Measures, treasurer. 

Forty brothers live at the Phi Sig fraternity

204 Pi Beta Phi 




Miles and miles away from 
home, a freshman at the Universi- 
ty could have found the school 
overwhelming at first and would 
have felt alone, lost among the 
thousands of students here on 

But hundreds of girls had found 
a home away from home at the Pi 
Beta Phi house. 

As freshmen and sophomores 
went through Rush, they were 
able to visit and get to know the 
members of the 12 sororities on 
campus. At the Pi Phi house, the 
girls found a sorority that was in- 
terested in promoting scholarship, 
morality and social activities. 

Many girls decided that the 
friendliness and openness of the 
Pi Phi's were for them. On Bid 
Day, the pledges gathered at the 
house to celebrate their choice 
with their new sisters. 

Besides a strong interest in 
academics, the Pi Phi's were in- 
volved with helping others. 
Philanthropies, their own and 
those of other fraternities, receiv- 
ed aid from the Phi Phi's. 

The members enjoyed 
themselves during the year at 
listerners, date parties and for- 
mals. Their grub formal was held 
at the VFW and gave the Pi Phi's 
and their dates a chance to party 
in any type of costume. 

The Pi Beta Phi house at 1493 University 
Ave. IS home away from home for many 
University women. 




In a year riddled with 
challenges, a group of Moun- 
taineers accepted the challenge of 
working to bring a fraternity back 
to the campus. 

Tau Kappa Epsilon, which left 
the West Virginia University cam- 
pus in 1978, returned to Morgan- 
town this year. 

The Interfraternity Council 
recognized the Rho chapter of 
TKE November 8th. 

The responsibilities of reorga- 
nizing and working membership 
drives fell on the shoulders of 
Scott Chatelain, who became 
president of the local chapter. Jim 
Appleyard was elected vice- 
president of the fraternity. 

Although the fraternity was 
dropped five years ago by the 
University and IPC because of a 
lack of members, 60 men had 
joined by the end of the first 

One of the largest fraternities 
nationwide, Tau Kappa Alpha had 
more than 300 chapters on college

206 Sigma Phi Epsilon 




Q: Where would you find five tons 
of sand, tanned bodies, golf clubs, 
palm trees and a golf course? 
A: No. not Palm Beach, a little 
closer to Morgantown — the Sig 
Ep house during one of their fun- 
filled parties. 

The fraternity, consisting of 98 
active members and 22 pledges, 
entertained many at their wild 
and crazy parties. The golf party 
and "show us your tan" party for 
spring break were talks of the 

Showing the college community 
that they were interested in much 
more than a good time, the group 
achieved recognition and awards 
for their efforts, such as tradi- 
tionally winning the award for 
outstanding Homecoming float. 

The Sig Eps were partnered 
with Alpha Phis for Homecoming 
festivities this year. 

The brothers held a run for 
Special Olympics, their philan- 
thropy. October 22nd they ran the 
game ball to Penn State, raising 
more than $2,000 from their 

The Sig Eps' Christmas formal 
was held at the house, and the 
Sheraton Lakeview was the site 
for their spring formal. 

Officers of Sigma Phi Epsilon 
were president Ray Clarke, vice- 
president Shan Carroll, recording 
secretary Phil Emmerth, cor- 
responding secretary Doug Barger,

could not defeat nor discourage 
Mountaineers from working with 
the needy or from promoting better 
relationships between the Universi- 
ty and the community. 

Students could not turn their 
backs on Morgantown, West Virginia 
nor the United States. They refused 
to allow themselves to become mired 
down with their own problems and 
troubles. Mountaineers became in- 
volved with community projects, 
charities and movements. 

Early in September, the newly 
formed Community Relations Com- 
mittee set out to improve 
University-town attitudes by 
organizing a street fair. A parade, 
sidewalk booths, rally and fireworks 
set the mood for acceptance and co- 
existence between students and 
townspeople for the year. 

With 1984 being an election year, 
politicians rushed to the Homecom- 
ing parade where they showed their 
support for the University. At 
various times during the legislative 
session, delegates debated and ex- 
plained their policies to University 

Gov. Jay Rockefeller spoke at a 
town meeting of concerned students 
and townspeople after he had made 
his State of the State address January 

Students were bombarded with 
campaign literature for local, state 
and national candidates. Student's 
energy and interest in politics was 
sought by political committees to 
help with the campaigns. 

A statewide celebration of tradi- 
tions and mountain heritage brought 
the community and the University 
together for Mountaineer Week. A 

street fair, quilt show, and arts and 
crafts show attraced thousands from 
all over the state to learn more of its 
Applachian heritage. 

Students did not sit on the 
sidelines while others organized ac- 
tivities for charities. 

Students let their feet do the work 
for the Muscular Dystrophy Associa- 
tion during Superdance '84. Greeks 
and Alpha Phi Omega members 
made up the bulk of the dancers who 
attempted the 24-hour dance 

For PACE-TEC, former outstand- 
ing Mountaineer athletes returned to 
Morgantown for a benefit basketball 

Telephone service, something that 
almost everyone took for granted, 
created much confusion when Ma 
Bell, American Telephone & 
Telegraph Co., was federally re- 
quired to relinquish ownership of its 
22 local Bell System companies. For 
customers this breakup usually 
meant higher phone bills and con- 
fusing phone repair service. 

World events also influenced 
Mountaineer lives. The surprise 
bombing of a U.S. Marine camp in 
Beirut, Lebanon, October 23 killed 
more than 230 marines, including 
Lance Cpl. Rusty Cyzick from Star 

A candlelight vigil April 10 at 
Oglebay Plaza was duplicated all 
over the world in towns and cities by 
those wanting to voice their fears of 
nuclear warfare and the destruction 
of the world family. 

Even with the grabbing problems 
faced by the students, they could not 
isolate themselves from the com- 
munity and world in which they

what it takes! 

on the line 

POIROT DID not lack the con- 
fidence in themselves to accept a 
challenge — a challenge presented 
by an unknown land or by an exer- 
cise using the little gray cells. 

Likewise, Mountaineers were not 
afraid to act when a challenge arose, 
questioning their courage, character 
and common sense. 

The year had ample opportunities 
to test West Virginia University 
students. Mountaineers were 
showered with problems involving 
everyday living to a once in a 
lifetime choice. Could the students 
cope with pressures of studying and 
striving for top marks while other 
activities also demanded their time? 

Pride demanded that the Moun- 
taineers live up to the hallmarks of 
the previous year. Did they have the 
depth to succeed where last year's 
athletes succeeded as well as where 
they failed? 

The Mountaineers rose to the test, 
proving that they did have strength 
and skill. A Hall of Fame Bowl win, a 
national rifle championship and an 
Atlantic 10 basketball triumph 
answered any doubts of Moun- 
taineer athletes. 

Yes, Virginia, there is 
a Santa Claus. Kappa 
Alpha brother Shawn 
Bevan plays St. Nick 
for area children at a 
Christmas party spon- 
sored by KA and Chi 

Speaking out at a 

peace rally, in the 
courthouse square, 
Patty Campbell and 
Fred Onorato protest 
the U.S. invasion of 
Grenada in the Carib- 
bean in October. 

Involvement with charities charac- 
terized WVU's Greeks. Competitions 
among the fraternities spurred on 
fun rivalries as well as raised money 
for such as the American Lung 
Association and Cystic Fibrosis. 

Organization and budgeting con- 
cerned the programming committees 
who shouldered a double burden — 
pleasing University students with 
entertainment while remaining 
within a tight budget. Alabama, 
Lionel Hampton and John 
Houseman were a few of the per- 
formers to entertain WVU audiences. 

The Monticola proved its existence 
should continue. Enough copies were 
sold to warrant another edition of the 

Perhaps the most challenging 
question to trouble University 
students was a decision for the 
future. Had they selected the right 
career? Only they themselves could 
say for sure. Happiness was the key. 
Happiness with their major, with 
their family and friends and most im- 
portantly with themselves. 

It was this challenge that con- 
fronted Mountaineers who repeated- 
ly proved that they had what it takes 
when they were on the line.
