COMING 
ONE STEP 



^^^■■l tepping on campus for 
^^^^^^ the first time in life or 
^^^^. since the 1991 Spring 
^^P Semester, for many 
^ j^r students meant seeing 
changes both in lifestyle and on 
campus. Students just starting a new 
part of their lives or continuing their 
education saw new professors, new 
classes, and new construction sites 
become major adjustments to their 
previous ways of living. 

For those students moving into the 
forms or commuting, they also faced a 
more lengthy walk across campus due 
to construction. Some students even 
incorporated an extra set of steps to 
climb everyday into their pathways to 
class. With this extra set of steps, 
their steps of success may have 
become more lengthy. However, they 
continue to climb one more step as 
they Come One Step Further in their 
education at Fairmont State College!!

urthering a higher education meant, for some stu- 
dents, adding extra exercise to their daily routine of 
classes that seemed like a hiking expedition rather 
than a learning experience. However, with the help of 
unseasonably warm temperatures and gorgeous Fall 
weather, some students may have enjoyed going to 
class or participating in sports just to be outside. The array 
of colors continue to add a special color scheme to the 
Fairmont State campus as students come to and from clas- 
ses everyday. 

Students in search of a higher education found major 
renovation to many of the buildings. Within these build- 
ings, students use stairs and elevators as access to fur- 
thering their education no matter what type of building is 
on the outside. Through good and bad weather, students 
managed to keep smiling after an unexpected and extended 
journey. 

No matter what route they traveled or what weather ex- 
isted, students continued to Come One Step Further, show- 
ing the true colors of the year.!!

Homecoming 1991 

Mardi Gras: A Celebration On Bourbon Street 




The 1991 Fairmont State Homecoming queen was 
crowned on October 19. Renae Clark, Black Student 
Union representative, was crowned during halftime 
festivities. The queen ceremony was the highlight of 
the day and just one of many awards given out to 
individuals and different clubs at FSC. 

Clark, a junior from Martinsburg, is majoring in 
Sociology and Human Services. She was escorted by 
Bernard Jones, president of the Black Student Union, 
and was presented with the crown by Dr. Kenneth 
Kelly, vice president of Student Affairs. The crowning 
ceremony took place at halftime of the FSC — Glen- 
ville football game. 

Kevin Nuzum, vice president of Student Govern- 
ment, said over 400 voters came out and voted for the 
21 queen candidates, which was more entries than 
usual. Nuzum added that the Black Student Union 
is one of the most active organization on campus. "We 
always have someone from the Black Student Union 
to run and I think it's great." 

Other awards given out were the 1991 Maid of Hon- 
or and the first runner up. The Maid of Honor went 
to Kimberly Spurlock, a sophomore in Elementary 



Education from Morrisvale. Spurlock was sponsored 
by the Circle K Club. 

Nicki Paugh was the first runner up at the crown- 
ing. Paugh was sponsored by Tau Kappa Epsilon fra- 
ternity and is a senior Psychology major from Clarks- 
burg. 

According to Nuzum, there were other awards given 
out to certain groups who competed in the Parade 
Float competition. The first place of $200 went to the 
TKE fraternity, second place prize of $125 went to 
Theta Xi and third place, $100 went to Circle K. 

The theme of Homecoming 1991, "Mardi Gras: A 
Celebration on Bourbon Street" was clearly exhibited 
on campus throughout the week as Student Govern- 
ment distributed T-shirts with the colors and theme 
of the Homecoming imprinted on them. Student Gov- 
ernment also sponsored various events during the week 
such as a game show, "Blizzard of Bucks," a bonfire, 
the "Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band" and the Home- 
coming dance. 

First Runner-up, Nicki Paugh and her escort, Mike 
Sposato, are pleased with the Homecoming festivities 
as they prepare to leave the field.

Furthering An Education 



New Freshmen Come One Step Further 



By Chris Metzgar 

Freshmen Orientation began Sunday, August 18 
with the freshmen counselors assisting approximately 
320 freshmen in moving into the dorms. Later that 
evening, a picnic was held for the freshmen which was 
followed by the variety show put on by the freshmen 
counselors. 

Monday morning, the freshmen met in Colebank 
where they were directed to their groups. Groups were 
put together alphabetically and consisted of 30 fresh- 
men and two freshmen counselors. The freshmen 
counselors directed the freshmen to their advisor-ad- 
visee meetings. Later that afternoon, the freshmen 
were taken at pre-designated times to be registered, 
if they had not yet been, and to pay fees and buy 
books. A dance was held for the freshmen and the 
counselors 8 o'clock that evening. 

Tuesday morning, the freshmen and counselors met 
at Colebank to be addressed by President Dillman, 
faculty and staff. Then, they were taken back to their 



classrooms to discuss college survival strategies, fill 
out a students survey, informed about college in gen- 
eral, and Fairmont State specifically. The evening, a 
pool and pizza party was held at the Feaster Center 
in which the best group was awarded with "Best 
Group" t-shirts. 

Approximately 985 freshmen participated in the 
three days of orientation. "Orientation was very suc- 
cessful mainly because of the teamwork and diligence 
of the counselors. It's extraordinary how 132 coun- 
selors work together as a team in comforting the fresh- 
men and helping them to adjust to a whole new way 
of life," said Michael Belmear, who along with Bill 
Bailey organized and coordinated the whole orienta- 
tion program. 

A great orientation program wouldn't be possible 
without our hardworking and dedicated counselors. 
We have found as a rule, students that participated 
in the Orientation program normally do better in 
school," said Bailey. 



Grouping together, the new 
freshmen get involved in the 
Freshman Orientation Pro- 
gram to learn more about their 
new school. 




12 



Freshmen Orientation provides 
help, guidance and many op- 
portunities as new students 
look to the freshmen counsel- 
ors for such information. 




13 




Coming over with information 
and answers to many questions 
from freshmen are freshmen 
counselors as they stop to con- 
verse during opening day of the 
program.

Furthering the Freshmen 
Routine to show how much 
fun can be incorporated into 
college life are the freshmen 
and counselors during the 
Freshmen Dance.

Furthering the group's 
performance, the saxophone player 
for Rhythm Syndicate involves the 
audience in "Hey Donna", Rhythm 
Syndicate's new number one smash. 




16 



C&C Highlights 

Rhythm Syndicate Opens An Awesome Show! 



Step One: take a band of five young men still 
in their twenties, who like to dance as well as 
sing a number one hit and add to Step Two. 

Step Two: take a beautifully attractive 
blues-singer named Zelma and match her up 
with a hot new rapper named Freedom and a 
group of talented back-up singers and dy- 
namic dancers. Then have this group perform 
at least three number one songs along with 
other soon-to-be popular songs and add Step 
Three. 

Step Three: add to steps One and Two at 
least 8000 students and fans. What was your 
result? The result was two popular rock 
groups being brought to Fairmont State Col- 
lege's Feaster enter by Student Government. 
On October 10, Rhythm Syndicate and C&C 
Music Factory appeared before 8000 people 
to give a performance Fairmont State can 



never forget. 

Rhythm Syndicate opened the show with 
"PASSION" followed by "Hey Donna" and 
other songs off their latest album. C&C Music 
Factory then entered the stage about 9 p.m., 
with lead singer Zelma Davis singing "Things 
That Make You Go Hmmm" joined by Free- 
dom Williams, also lead singer and their vo- 
calists and visualistic dancers. 

Overall, the concert lasted approximately 
two hours and ended in great success. Stu- 
dents, parents and children of all ages packed 
the Feaster Center to see and hear two great 
musical groups perform and they left know- 
ing they got their monies worth. Rhythm Syn- 
dicate and C&C Music Factory showed to 
8000 people how they are Coming One Step 
Further, using the steps of success!

Student Actors : 

A Variety of Nonprofessional Actors 






Coming to a new school for the first time, freshmen 
often feel that college will be all work and no fun. 
However, with 132 Freshmen counselors to help the 
freshmen turn work into fun, a variety of ways can 
be shown to change work into fun. What better way 
to show this variety of ways of fun than in a variety 
show! 

On Sunday August 18, approximately 985 freshmen 
filed into the Wallman Hall theater to see the 132 
counselors put on a show they will never forget. Not 
all the counselors were actors and they certainly proved 
that as they created skits that involved more than one 
counselor. They also proved that counselors and an- 
yone can have fun while they work hard to make 985 



people laugh. 

The variety show also provided many of the coun- 
selors with the chance to step on a stage for the first 
time. Some skits were rehearsed while others were not, 
allowing the counselors to add natural improvisations. 

Forwarding the Orientation Program to help the 
freshmen feel more comfortable at Fairmont State 
College is the underlying goal of the variety show. The 
counselors set out to show they are friends among 
friends, hoping to make even more friends through 
laughter and variety. Furthermore, the counselors 
added a fun step in a variety of ways to the college 
routine!

1991 

Campus 

news 



\ 



Coming one step further in 1991 
meant changes and new faces ap- 
peared on Fairmont State ground 
for the first time during the year. 
Enrollment figures went upward 
causing many parking problems all 
across campus. However, no mat- 
ter what problems came about, FSC 
students found ways to turn good 
and bad situations into successful 
steps of fun and adjustments. 

Students had fun looking for 
parking places to combat the con- 
struction and destruction of three 
major parking areas on campus. 
After finding a parking place, stu- 
dents hustled and bustled to class 
so as not to be late to hear profes- 
sors assign pages to be written and 
or read. 

Other news makers on campus 
were major ground breaking with 
prominent political officials. Stu- 
dents came together, to hear and 
see major concerts captivated by 
the highlights of nighttime musical 
artists and new faces of professors 
lit up both day and night courses. 

For some students, handling any 
of these news makers became a 
battle in itself. As they handled 
whatever came their way, FSC stu- 
dents were Coming One Step Fur- 
ther through the following pic- 
tures.

Students Step Out 



What happens when approximately 80 organ- 
izations line up to display their offerings to all 
FSC students? A student activities Fair occurs. 
Every organization on campus that could fit into 
one room was fairly and clearly represented dur- 
ing the Student Activities Fair. Students from 
such organizations and groups as the Oral In- 
terpretations Team, Masquers, Student 



Publications, Gamma Chi Chi Sorority, Theta 
Xi Fraternity, Circle K, IEEE, and several other 
fraternities and sororities, clubs and organiza- 
tions took an active role to assure the event was 
a success. This success is achieved by hard work 
and a lot of student spirit. It improves each year 
as the collection of creativity takes a step up and 
students step out to show off their stuff.

Coming Out First 



A new queen and one crazy game show can equal 
nothing but one fun filled week of Homecoming 
Activities. Other activities included a pep rally, 
bonfire, spirit stick competition and a free concert 
on Wednesday. On Thursday, the annual Home- 
coming Dance produced the Homecoming court. 
Voting for Homecoming queen was on Friday. 



Homecoming 1992 was different in two ways. First 
a game show and free concert were part of the ac- 
tivities. Secondly, a late entry from the Black Stu- 
dent Union in the queen's race became the winner 
for the first time, proving that FSC is Coming One 
Step Further.

Furthering Spirit 



Fairmont State College has seen a few firsts this 
year that seem to have a promising future as a 
tradition. The first Fairmont State Rugby Team 
started this year and won one-third of their games. 
Their future as a team looks bright as it was a main 
topic of conversation on some parts of the campus 
this fall. We wish them good luck in seasons to 
come. 



The campus also saw it's first family weekend. 
This was important because it provided students' 
parents with the chance to meet instructors and 
learn more about FSC. The family weekend was 
held on October 5, featuring various guest speakers. 
This is just one more way FSC is furthering its 
spirit.

Coming Alive With Music 



The Wheeling Symphony Orchestra performed 
one of two concerts on November 16 in Colebank 
Hall. The "Perestroika" concert, under the direc- 
tion of Maestro Rachel Worby, featured violinist, 
Ilya Kaler. 

The 1991-92 season for the Wheeling Symphony 
Orchestra included a fiveconcert classical series, a 



three-concert pop series, and a yuletide celebration 
which included the favorites for orchestra, chorus 
and soloists and a larger than-life puppet show of 
the fairy tale, "The Snow Queen." Music was com- 
ing alive in 1992, thanks to Rachel Worby and The 
Wheeling Symphony Orchestra.

One More Time . . . 



Music can be an arrangement of inspiring 
melodic and harmonic blendings of certain 
musical notes and instruments. However, 
when four different concerts are performed, 
the result is even more inspiring and beau- 
tiful. 

One of the four concerts performed was with 
the Dale Warland Singers on October 25 in 
Wallman Hall. This group presented a pro- 
gram of various choral works. The second con- 
cert bringing music alive was held on Novem- 
ber 10 in Colebank Hall. The Fairmont Col- 



lege — Community Symphony Orchestra per- 
formed under the direction of John Ashton. 
The 15th Annual High School Invitational 
Choral Festival took the stage on November 
18 as Dr. Joe Grant conducted area high school 
choral students in various songs. 

Finally, the Symphonic Concert Band and 
Percussion Ensemble, under the directions of 
Dr. Kirk Weller and Renee Wyatt, performed 
on December 6. These groups showed music 
can be performed One More Time!

Campus 
news 



\ 



As one looked from the ever pop- 
ular "Nickel" toward the library 
one saw bulldozers and mud. Even- 
tually the steel framework of the 
future Health and State Education 
Building. 

Shortly after the construction 
was started it was given two nick- 
names. The first nickname, "The 
Campus Debeautification Pro- 
ject," was given by noneducation 
majors. The second name, given by 
the education majors, was "My Fu- 
ture Home Away from Home." 

No matter what we choose to dub 
the construction, it left one big 
question in everyone's mind. Where 
will we park? Parking has been a 
major issue with the student's for 
many years. With the growing pop- 
ulation on campus we could only 
expect the worst. 

Some students after spending 
seemingly endless hours came up 
with some rather interesting tech- 
niques to find the elusive "good 
parking place." Some people tried 
to leave their cars at friends houses 
during the day. Others asked peo- 
ple if they wanted rides to their 
cars, so they could park in the new- 
ly opened space. 

The administration at the col- 
lege opened a carpool lot, but now 
even carpoolers have trouble find- 
ing parking spaces. There was a bus 
that would pick students up at the 
mall and take them to campus, but 
because of lack of participating 
students and faculty, the service 
was soon discontinued.

Furthering Our Education 



Once during each semester, students are faced with two major de- 
cisions. They must decide what academic field to seek as a career. 
This, for a fortunate few, is sometimes decided in their first semester 
of college. Once this is decided, students sit down with their advisors 
to fill out a class schedule. This is done during the pre-registration 
period that occurs shortly after the middle of the preceding semester. 
After the advisors turn the class schedules into the registrar's office, 
the students complete the preregistration process in the Ballroom. 
Pre-registration is complete only after the student picks up their com- 
puterized schedules and make necessary changes. 

The second decision facing students every semester is what group 
or organization to become involved in. Groups and organizations range

and clubs. However hard the two decisions are to make depends on

Stepping Out 
<¥# Music 



This year brought the Fair- 
mont State Campus a wide va- 
riety of band concerts and other 
remarkable performances. 
Whether one went to see Ra- 
chael Worby conduct the 
Wheeling Symphony Orches- 
tra's performance of Mother 
Russia or Sigma Alpha Iota's 
performance of some of Gersh- 
win's work, the music lovers were 
in for a big treat. Between Sen- 
ior Recitals and competitions 
and performances, a music ma- 
jor would have difficulty keep- 
ing track of group activities let 
alone school work. But one can 
clearly see that the talented mu- 
sicians of Fairmont State Col- 
lege love their music. 

By watching the young mu- 
sicians one can almost feel the 
time and energy they have to put 
into their work to give their au- 
dience one or two hours of lis- 
tening pleasure. And when the 




Band Members Marie Schwer, 
Mike Cale and Holly Porter 
perform at a summer concert. 

Playing with style, Freshmen 
band member gives his best 
effort at a summer practice. 



show is over, everyone involved, 
audience and performers, has 
taken piece of the performance 
with them. 

As the show ends and the cur- 
tain falls there is a feeling of sor- 
row for a moment that has past 
into memory. As the show ends 
the young musicians come one 
step closer to graduation and 
leaving the comfortable same- 
ness of Fairmont State and to- 
ward the fulfillment of their new 
careers. 

As the students must leave at 
some point, so must the instruc- 
tors. This year saw the last of 
Dr. Leta Carson. Dr. Carson was 
a wonderful instructor and a 
caring friend to everyone she 
knew. May her future be as re- 
warding as those she taught 
within Wallman Hall's walls. 

Band Director Kirk Weller gives 
the FSC band a pep talk at one 
of their practices.

One Step A. A Tii 



[Wit. 



The band at Fairmont State knows that practice makes 
perfect. The band members, generally, started playing 
in the band in fifth or sixth grade and continued through 
high school. After high school, they went on to play on 
the college level. 

When one listens to a performance of the band, it is 
more or less flawless. The power of the music of the many 
instruments sweeps you off your feet. One tends to ig- 
nore the amount of practice that is behind each note 



played. 

After countless hours of practice as a group and on 
the individuals own, it is show time. The individuals 
disappear and turn into one part of a musical group. 
They put everything they have practiced to work. Po- 
sitioning, notes, rhythm and the instrument all become 
only steps to the whole as they go from being a musician 
to the Fairmont State College Band we are so proud of! 








The Falcon Band practices 
diligently at the Feaster Center for 
their half time performances at 
future football games. 



Before the fall semester, the band 
welcomes the freshen during 
orientation weekend by playing 
"The Falcon Fight Song" 

Andy Herrod, practicing one step at 
a time to get the song just perfect, 
is an example of how dedicated the 
band is.

The Fine Arts Division sparkles every 
year with new talent performing before 
a packed auditorium. 1992 ushered in 
new performances and faces that im- 
proved the already outstanding Fine Arts 
Division of Fairmont State. 

The Debate and Oral Interpretation 
teams placed in the top winning posi- 
tions. As members captured high honors 
as individuals and groups, they added 
their trophies to the display in the Wall- 
man Hall Lobby. Although some of the 
Competitions took place on campus 
many took place off campus. 

Furthering his acting career is Chris Cox 
during his performances in plays 
produced on the FSC campus. 



These teams are quick to remind peo- 
ple that they could join their ranks if 
they have a 2.0 grade point average and 
a few speech classes. 

New Faces not only appeared in the 
debate and Oral Interpretation teams, 
but also on stage with the production of 
"Oklahoma." "Oklahoma" was per- 
formed during the Spring Semester to a 
crowd of exited onlookers. One amazing 
thing about "Oklahoma" was the fact 
that the tickets were sold out in less than 
six hours. The performance itself kept 
the audience stunned. It seems That the 
Masquers two majors productions this 
year were successes. 






Theta Xi members carry their 
banner through downtown 
Fairmont as part of the 
Homecoming Parade. 

Hugging fellow Masquer Andra 
Shreeve can be art itself when 
rehearsed both on and off stage.

The longing desire to be on stage 
and perform under the multicolored 
lights has become both a dream and 
a reality to two certain groups in FSC's 
theatre department. Masquers and 
the Town and Gown Players are two 
very successful acting groups seen in 
many of the plays produced on cam- 
pus. Masquers and The Town and 
Gown Players may appear as the same 
group, however these groups are dif- 
ferent in members. Masquers is com- 
prised of theatre students and other 
FSC students who like to act as a hob- 
by, while the Town and Gown Players 
is mainly comprised of community 

Contemplating the circumstances is 
Amy Knotts as she plays the role of 
Kate Keller. 



members who support the college with 
occasional performances or monetary 
support. 

One production seeing a combina- 
tion of these two acting ensembles was 
"The Miracle Worker." Masquers 
members were joined with a local sixth 
grader, Johnna Steele, who per- 
formed the role of Hellen Keller. Not 
only was a sixth grade young lady 
starring in a college production, but 
she also landed a role in a very suc- 
cessful Broadway and Tony award 
winning play. 

This is not an everyday occurrence. 
However with the help of Masquers 

Optimistic about his daughter future is 
Captain Keller played by Jack Erdie. 



Tiffani Satterfield as Anne Sullivan, 
Amy Knotts as Kate Keller, and Mary 
Ruth Fillers as Viney, this production 
proved to be a very successful season 
opener for the Masquers this fall. 

Masquers and The Town and Gown 
Players may appear as small groups, 
but this does not effect their perform- 
ance because of the number of stu- 
dents that turn out for auditions. Ev- 
er on stage, students range in age, size, 
shape, and acting abilities. No matter 
how they look off stage one thing is 
definitely clear: Step over New York, 
the Masquers are on their way. 



Furthering her acting career, with 
pitcher in hand, is Mary Ruth Fillers 
as Viney. 




Masquerading down the streets of 
Fairmont could never be any more fun 
as Gamma Chi Sorority members show 
off their Homecoming float.

As far as she is concerned "The 
Miracle Worker" was successful 
even before she stepped on 
stage. 

One touch can mean a lot to a 
blind girl, but Tiffani Satterfield, 
in the role of Anne Sullivan, 
appealed to all the senses.

THe Howit and. "Business 
Steps o(j SacC£SS 



Good food and good jobs are 
hard to find these days, but two 
departments still manage to 
train FSC students for the best 
possible careers. 

Home Economics continued 
to bring students together with 
food service management and 
cooking strategies. Also woven 
into home economics are courses 
in Fashion Merchandising, Re- 
tailing, and Clothing Manufac- 
turing. It is easy to see that 
Home Economics entails more 
than how to make a great meal. 

Another department training 
students for the future is the 
Commerce Division. This de- 
partment offers a variety of de- 



grees in all types of business ar- 
eas. These areas include busi- 
ness, accounting, Computer sci- 
ence, and secretarial training. As 
a result students can graduate 
and be employed as business ex- 
ecutives, accountants, computer 
operators, and secretaries. 

No matter what area of spe- 
cialization a student major in, 
this division offers extremely 
helpful advisors to assist the 
students as they climb the steps 
to success. 



No, It's not McDonalds, but you 
can find service with a smile and 
have lunch with friends in the 
FSC cafeteria. 







Students enjoy the food prepared 
with the help of the food service 
and Home Economics students in 
the cafeteria.

Everyone has heard the 
jokes about the sorority girls. 
But as with most stereotypes, 
the rumors usually do not 
hold true. But even more 
common than sorority ru- 
mors are sorority sisters. 
FSC's four most known so- 
rorities are Delta Zeta, Sigma 
Sigma Sigma, Gamma Chi Chi 
and Phi Mu. 

Delta Zeta, installed on the 
FSC campus in 1956, had 
many traditions of their own. 
They are the largest sorority 
on campus. The DZ's partic- 
ipate in intramurals and fund 



raisers for local charitable or- 
ganizations. 

Sigma Sigma Sigma, 
founded in 1930, has the dis- 
tinction of being the first na- 
tional sorority on campus. 
The Tri-Sigs participated in 
many fund raising drives, 
campus activities during 
Greek Week, the Student Ac- 
tivities Fair and Homecom- 
ing Festivities. 

Gamma Chi sorority 
changed their name back to 
the original name of Gamma 
Chi Chi. Although Gamma 
Chi is a local Sorority the 



members participate in many 
campus events such as intra- 
murals, fund raisers, dona- 
tion drives for local charities, 
homecoming activities, and 
hold a spring formal each 
year. 

Phi Mu Fraternity was 
founded when sororities were 
still called fraternities. They 
are very on campus and off. 
Regardless of the girls Greek 
group, they are sisters for bet- 
ter and for worse 'til gradu- 
ation do thee part.

This year saw many changes with the 
Fraternities. One of the changes was 
when Sigma Epsilon voted almost unan- 
imously to join with a national frater- 
nity. This was no ordinary fraternity 
though, the Sigma Epsilons joined Sig- 
ma Tau Gamma. 

On March 23, 1929 Sigma Tau Gam- 
ma became the first national fraternity 
on Fairmont State's Campus. By the 



time of its disassociation with the college 
all the original members were senior cit- 
izens and Sigma Tau Gammma was im- 
portant part of the FSC community. Now 
they are back after 20 years. Sigma Ep- 
silon feels it is now important for their 
fraternity to go national. Although they 
will still be the same guys they will not 
be flying the same colors, but will have 
many more brothers.

The Environmental Socie- 
ty had a great spring semester 
with the addition of more 
than 30 members, but then 
President Bush destroyed the 
group's hope for a stronger 
Endangered Species Act when 
The Earth Summit started. 
Despite this set back, they are 
still going strong. 

The Fall brought them a 
decline in membership, but 
two of the members still got 
to go to a national conference 
in Boulder, Colorado. That 
trip set the mood for the rest 
of the year. Shortly after the 
trip, Dr. Craig White as ad- 
visor to the group came up 
with a brilliant idea to in- 
crease membership. This idea 
brought in many new mem- 
bers for the spring semester. 
Some of the new members will 



be with the group in the fall 
along with some members 
who, because of their sched- 
ule, had to drop the group for 
a semester. 

Debbie Layman says 
"When I got involved with the 
group this fall I really did not 
know what to expect. I was 
interested in the environ- 
ment, but I did not feel I knew 
enough to join the group. 
Then I found out that a lot of 
the new members were the 
same way, they were interest- 
ed in different things about 
the Environment. Together 
we taught each other." A lot 
of the members, after going to 
a few meetings, wonder how 
someone could not be con- 
cerned when we are basically 
committing world-wide sui- 
cide.

Student Publications . . . What 
can one biased journalist say? 
They say a picture is worth a 
thousand words, but in this case a 
little more than pictures is re- 
quired. Student Publications is re- 
sponsible for The Columns, Whet- 
stone, and this yearbook you hold 
in your hands. As you read this 
yearbook, you may not think about 
how it came about. You may not 
understand the feeling of accom- 
plishment that comes from work- 
ing on the paper, yearbook, or the 
literary magazine. 

I can honestly write that some 
of my best friends I have met in 
the Student Publications office. We 
have our differences occasionally, 
as all people do, but we also have 
our good times. Whether it is the 
pre-deadline caffeine break or a 
game of Twister between classes. 

I would like to devote the rest of 
my available space to thank a few 
people that helped the yearbook 



staff keep their sanity (or insan- 
ity, which ever the case may be). 
First I would like to thank the col- 
lege for funding the yearbook for 
so many years, and our advisor, 
Scott Gillespie, and Sonya Miller 
for their moral support and help 
when we ran into a problem. Ri- 
chard Eddy, Sports Editor for the 
Columns is responsible for most of 
the sports stories appearing in this 
book. Eddie Gennoy was really 
great in listening to us vent our 
frustration. All of the Columns 
staff and the editors were a big 
help by not yelling about year- 
book clutter. Mr. Brad Forbes de- 
serves a thank you for helping us 
find a few photographers for the 
1993 yearbook.

Of One 'People 



Becoming One 




There was a wide variety of student activities this year. These ac- 
tivities provided students the opportunity to get to know one another 
because the activities showed the students that they had something 
in common with the other students present. 

The homecoming parade gave the students a reason to band to- 
gether and act as one. Different organizations made floats for the 
parade. By looking at the floats, almost anyone could have seen the 
hours of team work devoted to them so that the students could show 
that they believed in their organizations. 

Another way that the students at Fairmont State became one was 
by attending sports and fine arts activities. Hundreds of students went 
to football and basketball games to show the Falcons that we support 
them and wish them luck on their road to victory. There was also 
high attendance to the fall semester presentation of the "Miracle 
Worker." 

The International Relations Dinner in October provided students 
of different ethnic backgrounds a chance to meet other students. 
Whether it be dinners or sports functions the activities are a way for 
all the students at Fairmont State to become one.

why were they conducted? The an- 
swer is convocation. Not gradua- 
tion, but convocation. This is a 
process that all faculty members 



are required to attend every school 
year.

future PSC 
Students? 



Fairmont State College has a 
wide variety of community ac- 
tivities. The Campus Visitation 
is one such event. This allows 
area children to come and tour 
the FSC campus. By doing this, 
Fairmont State boosts chil- 
dren's desire to learn. The Cam- 
pus Visitation is usually held on 
a Saturday so it will not disturb 
studying students and classes. 

Children look at samples in the 
biology lab during Campus 
Visitiation Day. Since a lot of 
schools do not have enough 
funding this could be their first 
chance to do this.

Giving a campus tour can be 
challenging because you have to 
keep a large number of 
Children's attention so they do 
not get into trouble or get hurt. 

Dr. Judith Kreutzer, Coordinator 
for the Home Economics 
Department, demonstrates some

The people shown here prove 
that you can be a child at heart 
and still be a productive member 
of society as they keep an eye on 
these children. 



By holding the visitation day on 
a Saturday, the children are 
more protected from campus 
traffic and other things that 
could cause harm to them. While 
the children are on campus they 
not only get to look at things but 
they get to experience them first

Most of the time we, the FSC student,

We rarely consider them as people and 
wonder what they do after the school

of the TV eating Pop-Tarts in their worn

We do not know the answer to that 
question, but we do know they have been

vided speakers about college procedures, 
such as financial aid and registration. 
The college also allows student organi- 
zations to invite speakers. For example, 
the FSC Environmental Society spon- 
sored Warren Fornos this fall to talk 
about over-population. The College also 
had a leadership conference on February 
14 and 15, which featured various speak- 
ers and workshops to help you manage 
your time and be a better leader.

Student Study 
^Habits 



If one were to ask every stu- 
dent on the Fairmont State 
College Campus how they 
studied for their classes one 
would get at least a billion 
different answers, although 
there would be some common 
elements in almost everyone's 
answer. Things like "Well, I 
want to study so I can get good 
grades, but I'm good at putt- 
ing things off, so I wait for the 
night before and hope some- 
thing clicks." Another classic 
line concerning studying is "I 
went to all the lectures I do 

A few steps to college success 
are knowing how to relax, 
making the most of every mo- 
ment, and a lot of intense con- 
centration. 



not have to study." That 
statement then is justified by 
the person who said it be- 
cause anyone who has been at 
Fairmont State knows that is 
not true. 

When we finally do get 
around to studying many of 
us sit back on the sofa, half 
reading our text and half 
watching TV. Some disci- 
plined students make it to the 
library. A lot of us have this 
bad habit of saving our li- 
brary time until finals week. 
There is so much else for us 
to do, we really need to watch 
what we do so we will not fall 
into one of "The Study Hab- 
its Of Death" traps.

Uhe College 
Experience 



Starting college is like step- 
ping into a new and complete- 
ly different world. For many 
students it is the first time 
that they will be living away 
for home. It seems that in col- 
lege you see a new face every 
day. College is an opportu- 
nity for you to gain your in- 
dependence and make new 
friends but there is also a lot 
more than that. 

It is a time where you must 
decide what it is that you want 
to spend the rest of your life 
doing. It is books and study- 
ing, trips to the library and 
trips to the grocery store, and 
do not forget to wash your 
dirty socks. It is a time where 
you have more things to do

than you have time to do 
them, a place of constant 
deadlines. 

With all the things we need 
to learn how to do and all the 
procedures on how to do this 
or that, you should be given 
an award if you have college 
life down by your seventh or 
eighth semester. The good 
news? After your done with 
your degree from Fairmont 
State you should be prepared 
to do it when you go back for 
your master's degree!

"Become A Family* 



Every Year Approxi- 
mately one hundred and 
twenty students are cho- 
sen to be freshmen coun- 
selors. The students may 
not know any of the oth- 
er chosen few, but before 
they know it they be- 
come a family. This hap- 
pens when the Freshmen 
counselors go to the mys- 
terious camp, which is 
described as "something 
that is undescribable, but 
must be experienced." 
Whatever happens at 
camp, it sis easy to see 
how close the counselors 
are. 

The newly formed fam- 



ily then guides the in- 
coming freshmen into the 
college. By the time the 
counselors are finished 
with orientation, every 
freshmen will know the 
policies and procedures 
they need to be success- 
ful at Fairmont State. 
What Michael Belmear 
and his counselors do is 
amazing. The bonds 
formed between Mr. Bel- 
mear and the counselors 
is unbreakable. It is the 
best orientation pro- 
gram anywhere and it is 
helping FSC become one 
step closer to being the 
best.

It may seem like only yester- 
day that this year's seniors were 
wandering around campus as 
bewildered and scared Fresh- 
men. Now their days at Fair- 
mont State are almost over. With 
degrees in hand, today's youth 
will become the adults who be- 
come mature responsible citi- 
zens in whatever course life takes 
them after they leave these walls. 

The senior class that we will 
soon be saying goodbye to has 
changed a great deal since they 



arrived on campus only a few 
years ago. They became active 
in the many campus activities 
provided on campus, joined 
clubs, and made new friends. 
Perhaps the best thing they have 
learned on campus is that there 
is always something that they 
won't know. But because of the 
experiences they have had at 
FSC the newly winged adults will 
be able to cope and succeed in 
anything and everything that 
comes their way. 



Getting a group of children 
together for story time is no 
simple task but, this education 
student seems to do it with ease.

No matter where you go on 
the Fairmont State College 
Campus, the sound of laugh- 
ter or sounds of two friends 
talking is everywhere. The 
campus at Fairmont State is 
not only a place of back- 
breaking school work, but al- 
so a place where friendships 
are built and maintained. 

One place of constant fun 
is the Turley Center. The stu- 
dent Union is almost always 
filled nearly to the top capac- 
ity with friends stopping be- 
tween classes to get a soda, to 
play a game of pool, or to just 
talk. It is here that you can 
take time out and forget about 
the killer test you just took, 
sit back and just relax. 

Fairmont State College has 
many groups and organiza-

tions that serve as meeting 
grounds for many students. If 
one is interested in a subject 
their is probably an organi- 
zation on campus that will 
provide the person the chance 
to turn their interest into ac- 
tion. These groups and organ- 
izations also are the basis in 
which many long lasting 
friendships formed. 

After classes are over one 
can find students congregat- 
ing all over Fairmont. One 
popular place for students in 
the past has been Hammer- 
heads, now known as Playoffs. 
Here students over the age of 
twenty-one really forget about 



class by the occasional over- 
indulgent consumption of al- 
coholic beverages. Even if one 
does not drink, one can still 
have a good time at this Fair- 
mont Avenue night spot. 
Play-offs often has a band 
performing. One of the pop- 
ular bands has been "Weird 
Harold," which features a few 
Fairmont State students. 

Their are many opportu- 
nities for Fairmont State stu- 
dents to come together and 
have a laugh, share a joke or 
take a break and let the world 
continue its journey around 
the sun without them for at 
least a little while. 




These Fairmont State College 
Students find fun where ever 
they go. If it is not fun it will 
be before they are finished.

This October Fairmont State 
College held the Student Activ- 
ities Fair. There was a wide va- 
riety of clubs that participated 
this year one of which was from 
the theater department. They 
placed picture albums out for all 
to see. The pictures were mainly 
from past plays and produc- 
tions. Many students found 



them quite interesting. 

At Fairmont State the theater 
department tries to have one 
play per semester that stars 
Fairmont State students. This 
fall many of us got the oppor- 
tunity to see "The Miracle 
Worker" and in the spring the 
FSC theater department gave a 
performance of "Oklahoma."

At Fairmont State College, 
We not have not only people 
from different states, but also 
different countries. Although 
the United States is viewed 
differently with each student 
from another country, one 
thing is the same with almost 
all of FSC's guests form afar. 

Their sense of country is 
truly amazing. While talking 
to Shigeki Kitayama, it is easy 
to tell that he loves Nepal, his 
home country, by his use of 
the terms "my country." This 
is a lot different than U.S. 
students who generally state 
the name of the country or 



state instead of "my country" 
or "my state" 

We, at FSC, can learn a lot 
from the students of different 
origins. We can not only learn 
about their respective coun- 
tries, but we can also learn to 
have pride in our origins and 
to cast aside old an unneces- 
sary prejudices. Hopefully 
this will be one step towards 
world peace and equality to 
all of mankind. 

Mr. William Bailey, Student 
Affairs, takes time out to 
enjoy a hot dog before 
meeting new freshmen and 
transfer students.

A Closer Look At 
Sports 



Three Steps to Spirit! 



One step is a rowdy group of fans consisting of parents, community 
members, students and faculty members of FSC. A second step is a 
group of highspirited young ladies dressed in FSC's colors of maroon 
and white. Finally, a third step is a group of tougher-than-tough Fal- 
con football players. These steps were followed during every game of 
the 1991 football season. These steps were then combined as each 
group came together to support one another on a large white-lined 
football field. 

The fans supported the games by cheering as loud as possible. The 
Falcon cheerleaders supported their team when they managed to get 
the fans involved in cheering. The football team supported themselves 
as they played as a team. They continued that support as they took 
the field for each unexpected battle just to impress and excite their 
fans and cheerleaders. Winning or losing did not play a major part 
in each group as much as the different types of supports. You could 
say the supports are what actually played the games last season. Al- 
though the Falcon football team lost on the field, the continued sup- 
port of the three groups actually won every game. Three Steps to 
Spirit are the true winners of all football games! 









The Falcon cheerleaders 
help to build team confi- 
dence and crowd enthu- 
siasm. 



Number 37, Cliff Conway, 
is the sophomore quar- 
terback for the Falcons. 
He knows when the op- 
portunity for a touch- 
down is just moments

Football Firsts!! 



Major Disappointment Wins! 



The 1991 Fairmont State 
football season was a season 
of major disappointments. 
The Falcons ended the sea- 
son with a record of 1-8-1, 
with the lone win being a for- 
feit win against West Virginia 
Tech. 

The Falcons opened the 
season on the road in Clarion. 
The visiting Falcons had a 
chance to win the game, how- 
ever, when Clarion scored in 
the final minutes of the game, 
FSC had lost 24-21. The Fal- 
cons took the next week off 
to prepare for Slippery Rock. 

When Slippery Rock came 
to Fairmont on Falcon Fan 
Day, the Rock handed FSC 
its worst loss of the season, 
32-7. The Falcons never re- 
ally recovered from this loss. 
The Falcons travelled to West 
Virginia Tech and got credit 



for a win when Tech used an 
ineligible player. However, on 
the scoreboard, Tech was on 
top, 19-17. 

West Virginia Wesleyn 
came to Fairmont on Family 
Weekend and once again, 
spoiled a special FSC day. On 
a rainy and miserable day, a 
26-yard Wesleyan field goal 
early in the game proved to 
be the difference as FSC lost, 
3-0. Concord was the next 
team to travel into Fairmont. 
The Falcons gave Concord all 
they could handle, but again, 
still lost, 21-16. 

Glenville State came to 
Fairmont for a Homecoming 
Day battle with the Falcons. 
Fairmont State's defense had 
a major let down by letting 
Jed Drenning, the Pioneer 
quarterback throw for 577 
yards. Once again, the Fal- 



cons lost, 4434. The Falcons 
next game was at West Vir- 
ginia State. The Falcons and 
the yellow Jackets battled it 
out in a close game. As luck 
would have it, FSC lost 27-25. 
FSC's only non-loss game 
was against West Liberty. The 
Falcons had a chance to win, 
after Jeff Crabtree picked off 
a pass and returned it deep 
into West Liberty territory. 
The final score, 10-10. The fi- 
nal conference game was at 
home against Shepherd. The 
Rams, undefeated in the con- 
ference, defeated FSC, 3316, 
to give the Rams the WVIAC 
title. Fairmont ended the 1991 
season at Edinboro. The 
Fighting Scots had the early 
lead and never looked back as 
they defeated the Falcons, 31- 
21. 




Racking up extra points is 
never easy as this point was 
earned unofficially during a 
Falcon football game.

One Step Closer 
to Number 1 



For much of the first half of the sea- 
son, the men's basketball team struggled 
around the .500 mark. Toward the end, 
the team started playing great basket- 
ball by winning eight of their last ten 
games, including a very impressive win 
against number one Charleston, 74-72. 

The Falcons finished the season with 
an overall mark of 15-12 and figured to 
exit the WVIAC tournaments as quickly 
as they entered. Coach Randy Hess's 
team fought their way to an 84-80 first 
round victory over Salem-Teikyo Uni- 
versity. The victory marked the third 
straight year the Falcons have advanced 
to the second round. 



Frank Washenitz, one of Fairmont State's 
guards, prepares to pass the ball to one 
of his teammates while a crowd 
anxiously awaits the final outcome. 



Hoping to advance past the second 
round, where they had been knocked out 
for three years, the Falcons had to go 
through Sheperd College. After an in- 
tense, heated basketball game, the Fal- 
cons found themselves on the short end 
of the score again, falling 72-71 and end- 
ing their season 16-13. There is always 
hope for next year. The Falcons will take 
the extra step and claim the Number 
One space for Fairmont State. 

Sophomore Center Eric Alder blocks the

players wonder if they are 
playing the right team.

On the Comeback Trail 



For a while it seemed that everybody's attention 
towards golf was centered on the gopher in "Caddys- 
hack," but viewing this year's golf team and various 
TV commercials it seems that playing golf is the thing 
to do. The FSC definitely knew this as they got the 
taste of victory pumping through their veins. Little 
did they know what was to happen at the end of their 
regular season. The team's first match at Greensboro 
was only the start when they placed 7th of 22. It seems 
they were only warming up. In every match they went 
to they placed in the top 50^ , usually in the top 33 '\ . 

After the five matches before they went to the 
WVIAC matches those following the golf team's pro- 



gress knew they were going to do good. What the team 
did at the WVIAC matches, though, was unheard of. 
At the WVIAC southern the team took 3rd of 11. At 
the WVIAC northern they took 2nd of 9 and in the 
central division they claimed 2nd of 11. At the end 
of their regular season, the WVIAC championship, 
they came in 1st of 11. Upon finishing their regular 
season 106-37, it was little time to savor their victory 
before going to the NAIA National Championship fin- 
ishing the match 15th out of 36. 

Fairmont Field club offers a relaxed setting for the golf 
team while the practice for upcoming matches.

Mid-way through Season, 
Team in a Slump 

Win or Use, The Key Word is Play. 



Although the Baseball team has 
practiced hard they seem to be 
stuck in the dugout. The problem 
seems to be in the teams hitting 
skills. Midway through the season 
when the Falcon baseball team was 
6-11 they had lost 5 out of 8 of their 
last games, it seemed unlikely that 
the players were going to regain the 
confidence needed to start slam- 
ming the ball over the fence. Coach 
Ron Whitting thought that al- 
though most of the teams problems 
were stemming from not hitting the 
ball he should still continue to have 
heavy practice on all aspects of the 
game and try to not only prepare 
the team physically but mentally 
as well. 



Coach Whitting also went on to 
say that fans that turn out at the 
games can also have a good effect 
on the teams performance. He feels 
that if the team sees that they are 
not the only people that are hoping 
the team is victorious, their morale 
and confidence will increase ena- 
bling them to get past the mental 
barriers. 

Whether the team wins or loses 
they must keep in perspective why 
they play the game if they lose sight 
of the joy they find in playing they 
will suffer a different kind of block. 
Everyone likes to see their favorite 
team win but that should not be 
the only concern.

bases instead of walking them?

Stepping into Spring 





SiBi 



Once the snow melts and the colors change from gray to green, students begin 
the spring with a bright new attitude all of a sudden things are not as 
hopeless as they were a week before. Although January and February are 
considered winter months, FSC students saw them as a chance to warm up 
to spring when they were caught somewhat unexpectedly with temperatures in the 
seventies. These abnormal temps were received by students as a chance to break out 
the shorts. If you belonged to a sorority or fraternity it also served as a chance to 
daydream about upcoming Spring Formals. 

March came in like a lamb. This month brought in the dreaded mid-term monster 
and the much needed spring break. With April came the formals and the Easter 
holiday. Then, finally, came May. May brought with it a hint of summer's coming, 
unfortunately many students ignored this hint. This hint was obscured by Finals week 
and then by graduation. Many students stuck around a week or so after to say good- 
bye to friends and do the final packing before heading home. Though it seems just 
as we stepped into spring it turned to summer, many of us will see it again at FSC 
in 1993. 



Stepping into spring showed 
new arrivals in fashions for 
many students. 




Students show that formals are 
not just black tie affairs.

Closing the door of a long education 
is made easier through smiles 
during graduation. 




Stepping in the 
Right Direction. 



Their futures began the 
moment they stepped onto 
the stage designed especially 
for them. Once they lined up 
and followed the path to their 
degrees, they were unstop- 
pable but proud. The class of 
1992 graduated on May 9 in 
front of 4000 guests. Friends 
and family cheered and 
clapped as each graduate re- 
ceived a congratulatory hand- 
shake along with their degree. 

President Dillman smiled 
as he and Dean Peter handed 
out 459 degrees in several dif- 
ferent fields. By far more de- 
grees in the areas of Bachelor 
of Science and Bachelor of 
Arts were given out than in 
the associates fields. With this 
many graduating students, 
the day was destined to be 



chaos. For four or more years 
students look forward to this 
day never suspecting they will 
look upon the day with sad- 
ness. With every good-bye the 
graduates said they became 
more and more aware of what 
a big day this was. When the 
graduates accepted that de- 
gree they were doing more 
than saying good-bye to 
friends they were saying good- 
bye to a way of life. 

The days were gone when 
they could sleep through their 
9:00 class and get the notes 
off the person next to them if 
they made it to class again be- 
fore the next exam. The 1992 
graduates were definitely 
taking a step in the right di- 
rection, though, no matter 
how they go about it. 





Finalizing the last few 
minutes of nervousness are 
graduates as they line up to 
enter the main floor of the

The Coming of 
Cultural DivQrsity 



Gradaution 1992 saw many 
people start the long path to 
successful careers. It saw laugh- 
ter and tears, happiness and sor- 
row. Graduation did not, how- 
ever, see race. The ceremony 
contained a 45 minute speech 
given by one guest speaker about 
Cultural Diversity, but did not 
show prejudice. After so many 
years since the Civil Rights 
Movement was just a dream in 
a youngster's head, why do we 
still see race? 

We all go to the same college, 
does it matter whether we are 
black or white or purple with 
yellow stripes? Every person is 
a person, no matter what there 
skin color. What really matters 
is what is on the inside. If we lay 
outside and get a tan, do we go 
inside a different person be- 
cause our skin is different? 



Do you not feel that enough 
people have died over color? 
Have we not made enough peo- 
ple suffer by judging not by who 
a person is but what color one 
is? Is it not time to stop being 
afraid to find out what is similar 
about to people because their 
exteriors are different? 

There are so many problems 
on this planet of ours, listen to 
the news. Do we have to contin- 
ue fighting our little civil wars 
over such trivial things? This 
story is not aimed at a race it is 
aimed at you. If you are preju- 
dice think about it, is there any 
good justifications or only ster- 
eotypes? If you are not preju- 
dice, share the word, lend a hand, 
you may save someone's life. Do 
not let the idea of an equal, but 
diverse, culture find it's burial 
in our generation.

found in the FSC faculty and

143 



Stepping Out in 
Style 



Planning months in advance 
for spring formals is never easy. 
However, much of the planning 
takes place just two weeks prior 
to the event. Although most of 
the planning is done by sorority 
or fraternity committees, the 
other members and guests must 
also plan certain things to en- 
sure that a good time is enjoyed 
by all. 

For example, the ladies at- 
tending the formals must wear 
a ravishing evening gown and 
other stylish accessories; their 
hair must be perfect and make- 
up must be flawless. The gowns 
alone will cost between $50 and 
$200. Yet, the evening attire is 
not complete until the men es- 
corting the ladies arrive to ac- 
cent the formal wear design. 

The men will be renting tux- 
edos, if they do not happen to 
own one. Renting an appropri- 
ate tuxedo will cost at least $45, 
and if a man chooses a well 
known designer's tuxedo it could 
cost as much as $200. The men 
must take a special effort to get 



a cummerbund and shirt that 
matches or compliments his 
date's gown. These are but only 
the beginning of the man's ex- 
pense. 

The men are expected to pay 
for both the meal and transpor- 
tation. Since nobody wants their 
car to break down on the way to 
the formal or show up in a rust- 
ed heap, there may also be the 
expense of renting a Limousine 
or other vehicle. The men are al- 
so responsible for having extra 
cash on hand in case anything 
unexpected happens or if they 
want to take the ladies out for 
a night cap. 

These are just some of the ex- 
penses that go toward an enjoy- 
able night. One of the keys to an 
outstanding formal is stepping 
out in style.

Students Show It 
Off! 



Fashion Firsts. 

Looking good and letting it show was 
nothing new to Fairmont State Stu- 
dents. 1992 was a year of firsts and fash- 
ion became a daily statement students. 
Fashion Statements were as loud as a 
pair of faded boxer shorts on the coldest 
day of winter or a subtle statement was 
made with pastel color clothes blended 
together during the spring semester. 

No matter what type of fashion state- 
ment was made, one color dominated the 
campus. Black sweaters and pants 
seemed to be the fashion trend of 1992. 



Floral patterns were popular in the 
spring when even the most daring trend 
setters refused to wear black. 

The most popular campus fashions 
were displayed in the spring semester 
when students came together to present 
a fashion show to on-looking students, 
faculty and staff. 1992 has definitely 
shown fashion firsts in many different 
ways as students dressed to show it off. 

Rain, Snow, Sleet, or shine? These two FSC 
ladies display the 1992 fashion jackets

Going 

One 

Step 



Showing how to go one step further are 
homecoming court members as they wave and 
smile throughout the Homecoming game. 

Going to "Pour It On" is a decorative homecoming 
float as it makes its way down Fairmont's main 
street during the Homecoming Parade. 





Nothing could hold a candle to FSC ladies as they 
complete the steps of an induction ceremony.
