A Ticket To The 90's 

Louisburg College 

Volume 67 

The college experience is one 
which, when pursued, should be 
held precious. College allows one 
to earn an education, establish 
new relationships, participate in 
extra-curricular activities, and ex- 
perience a feeling of responsibility 
which all play a significant role in 
one's future. Having enrolled in 
Louisburg College, one purchased 
not only an education, but a valu- 
able "ticket" which allows for ad- 
mission to a promising future. 
With this ticket, one can be as 
successful in life as possible. This 
is not only a ticket to the future, 
but a ticket to a new decade, the

ballads and savoring the sweet taste of summer 

Melon on the lawn has been a part of 
Louisburg College's orientation for many 
years. It is held in the front of Main Build- 
ing on the steps. The students and faculty 
are welcome to all the watermelon they 
can eat. Melon on the lawn is sponsored 
by the chaplain's office. Mr. Stafford is 
now famous for his excellent watermelon 
cutting. Al Wright plays the guitar and 
tries to get the students to sing along as 
they enjoy their melon.

Mr. Stafford along with the students 
having a little fun with the seeds. Mr. 
Wright has become a ritual with his 
music at the famous "melon on the 
lawn" gathering. 

Not only do students get to eat 
watermelon, but they also have a 
chance to make new friends. Many 
students, like these two, found the 
watermelon to be very satisfying on 
this warm evening.

Leadership '89 

What is this, the Three Beastie Boys? Are these three guys 

Jeff Greene. Eric Siechrest, and Ivan Stratton trying to act 

cool in front of the camera or are they just trying to rap 

to the beat of the flash? Left: Working together as a team. 

Tony Mills. Jimmy Paulakuhn, Mary Fordham. David Tilley. 

and Ervin Williams try to very carefully and very quickly 

stand on a 1-foot square wooden table with nothing to 

brace themselves upon besides the fellow staff members. 

Can they do it? 

Leadership Conference/10 

This year's Leardership Staff for '89'90 is Mary 
Katherine Turner. Heather Tomerlin. Charles 
Johnson. Nichole Williams. Cheryl Chambers. 
Chris Suggs, Jimmy Paulakuhn. Dean Partin. Mary 

Fordham. Leslie Council, Heidi Wagner. Jeff

The Leadership Training Conference 
went very well this year. We had a posi- 
tive staff of excited people who were 
eager to learn about the positions that 
they would have to hold. The staff start- 
ed off the three-day training conference 
with great attitudes. Everyone came 
thinking positive about the conference 
and about the upcoming year. It was said 
to have been one of the most positive 
staffs that Louisburg has had. The confer- 
ence started out with various talks given 
by some of the faculty members of Louis- 
burg. The talks dealt with the duties and 
responsibilities of their jobs. Throughout 
these talks the staff had an opportunity 
to ask questions about things in which 
they were not clear upon. The main pur- 
pose of the conference was to teach the 
various staff members the meaning of the 
word teamwork. They were divided up 
into groups and had to remain in these 
groups throughout the conference. The 
purpose of this was so that the individual 
members of the group could find out 
more about the other members and be- 
come good friends. The conference 
helped the staff learn their fellow staff 
members so that they could work better 
together for the upcoming year and the 
years to come.

New Surroundings 

Students often bring mementos from home to 
remind them of family and friends, and also 
to make their dorm rooms much more like 

Student life at Louisburg College is never 
dull with all the activities going on like "Fun 
Day" and "Comedy Sportz." Fun Day was a 
time for all new students to get together and 
do some outside activities and also give ev- 
eryone a chance to meet new friends. There 
was a good turn out for this activity. Also, 
Comedy Sportz was a fun activity, because 
it was a workshop that taught team improvi- 
sation comedy. The workshop was conduct- 
ed by Bob Johnson, who is involved with the 
Comedy Sportz team in Raleigh. Bob also 
teaches photography here at Louisburg Col- 
lege. There were two teams that acted out 
the skits. The responses were based on the 
suggestions of the audience that applied to 
the games they played, such as 185, Hitch- 
hiker, Mr. Know-lt-AII, and Story. These 
games kept the students laughing the whole 
time. Comedy Sportz performs on Friday 
and Saturday nights in Raleigh at the New 
Yorker Restaurant. 

Waiting for class cards in drop/add may take 

"Hey. aren't the guys supposed to be carrying 

this?" These two students find moving into 

Wright a little more work than they had thought. 

New Surroundings/12 

"Bang, Bangl You're deadl" Mo Beetham and 
Kevin Harris are acting out a game called 
"Freeze" to help understand what improvisational 
comedy involves. 

"Okay, so what's the deal with all the toilet 
paper?" Students got involved in some fun 
activities on their first days here. These gave 
them a chance to meet new people. 

"Say cheese!" These students are getting their 
pictures made twice for The Oak.

A Special Day For The Parents 

Parents' Day is a special day at Louisburg 
College. The parents were gathered in 
the new auditorium and given a welcome 
speech by Student Government President 
Chad Dansby. Dean Brooks also had a 
speech for the parents. There was a slide 
show of the history of Louisburg College. 
This slide show was shown so the parents 
could see how far Louisburg College has 
come over the past two-hundred and two 
years. The parents were also invited to 
enjoy lunch with their sons and daugh- 
ters. Parents' Day is set around mid-term-, 
at this point professors have a pretty 
good idea of how well the students are 
doing. If the students aren't doing well, 
their parents get to find this out too. 
Whatever the case may be, the profes- 
sors and administration are here to wel- 
come them. 

Elaine and Christy are having fun here at school, 
even though it is on a Saturday. 

Parents Day/14 

Parents, faculty, and students had a nice time 
dining in the Blue Room. 

Dr. Willard is having tun telling these 
parents about their sons' and daughters'

Parents Day/15 

Fall Intramurals '89 began in October 

with a booml Many students gathered 

together to form teams for soccer and 

flag football. Students competed 

according to dormitories and their 

individual floors. 

1989 was the first year that soccer was 

added to the intramural agenda. As this 

was the first year for soccer, it was 

also the premiere for female 

participation on the field. Many ladies 

took to the soccer field and joined the 

men for a little competition and fun. 

Flag football was another activity 
included in Fall Intramurals. 

It has been played in past intramurals, 

and was just as exciting and 

competitive this season. 

The season came to a close in 

December with championship matches 

in each sport. The Hillman Trips of the 

third floor grasped the soccer title, 

while Franklin Dormitory, third 

floor.claimed the flag football

Trick or Treat, from Lou-UU! 

The Halloween '89 Dance was a lot of fun 
for everyone and everything here at 
Louisburg College. Students had a great 
time seeing who could scare whom the 
most. They also had a costume contest. 
The winners of the contest were first 
place — "Cat Woman," Michelle Mon- 
ette. Second place winner — "Handsome 
Dude," Paul Stokes. Third place winner — 
"Cave Woman," herself, Christy Fleming.

Dorm Life At Lou-U 

Going over the rules and regulations of the 

College for resdent living are Leslie Council 

Resident Director of Wright Dorm and Cheryl 

Chambers. Head Student Resident. 

Dorm life is not just doing homework and 
studying, it's also fun! There are many 
activities that go on in the dorms and 
many of the resident students get in- 
volved with them. The dorms sponsor 
many activities that not only involve the 
students of the college, but the communi- 
ty as well. During Halloween Wright 
Dorm's residents invited children to go 
"trick or treating." Wright Dorm also 
sponsored the ever popular "Dating 
Game." They invited the guys from Pat- 
ten Dorm to join in the fun! Many stu- 
dents find the living conditions in the 
dorms relaxing and comfortable. Some 
students make many renovations to their 
rooms by moving furniture around and 
many students choose to build creative 
lofts to give them more space. All the 
dorms get involved with the intramural 
program at the College. The sporting ac- 
tivities invole Softball, basketball, football 
and coed soccer. Each dorm gets in- 
volved in many of the College's activities, 
especially at Homecoming. The most im- 
portant thing about dorm life is you make 
many good friends for life! 

Playing around as usual are Brett Mclnis and 
Rebecca Jones.

Homecoming 90 

What has beautiful women, exciting games, 
and lots of talent? It's Homecoming 1990. 
Homecoming is traditonally held in the fall, 
but this year it was held in the spring semes- 
ter due to changes in scheduling. This made 
it more delightful. Homecoming 1990 was 
filled with nights of elegance and excite- 
ment. On February 8, our celebration began 
with a talent show. Ten talented students 
graced the stage of the College's auditorium 
with the comic Leroy Staton. Many of the 
contestants' friends were in the audience to 
give support and encouragement. The first 
place prize went to Miho Furukoh. Second 
and third places, to Patrise Bullock and Mi- 
chelle Brodie. This got us prepared for the 
Homecoming Court, Game, Dance, and Lou- 
U Spirit competitions. The students got the 
opportunity to dress up in as much blue and 
white as they could paint on and put on. The 
"Blue and White" competition was won by 
Rob Garner. Rob took home $50 for his en- 
thusiasm. Enid Drake was also honored for 
25 years of coaching at Louisburg College. 
Students were dazzled with a weekend of 
Homecoming that was action packed.

The Louisburg College Hurricanes played 
their second season in the Carolina's Jun- 
ior College Conference, which includes 
teams from both North and South Caroli- 
na. The Canes closed out their season 
with a 22-10 record. The Canes have won 
20 or more games in four of the last five 
seasons. The Canes were a balanced team 
consisting of seven freshmen and seven 
sophomores. The returning team mem- 
bers from the 1988-89 squad were Scott

Expressionism: That's the Ticket! 

Expressionisml What is it? It has been defined 
in many different ways, but it always relates 
to the reflection of one's inner self, shown in a 
way that tells one about the artist. At Louis- 
burg College, expressionism is well practiced 
through some of our students' clothes. The art 
of dressing how one feels is on the rise. Even 
the preps practice this form of expression 
once in a while. Why not? What better way to 
make people take notice when they obviously 
don't want to hear anything said? Clothes that 
are torn, dyed, bleached, and frayed are 
enough to keep heads turning and minds bog- 
gled. Mr. Stafford is a religion teacher at 
Louisburg College. He said, "expression of 
one's self through their clothing is fine, as long 
as it is not offensive to others." Melissa Ader- 
hold is a sophomore at Louisburg College. She 
stated that what people wear can be changed 
day to day to give a feeling of demureness 
and sexiness. "You can be outgoing with your 

clothes. Wear vibrant colors on happy days or 
on days when you want to be seen. When you 
want to blend in, wear pale colors and beiges." 
She believes that the idea of wearing clothes 
is to present your view, such as not wearing 
leather and furs in support of the animals from 
which they were made. Melissa also ex- 
pressed that some people judge others for 
what they wear instead of looking at a per- 
son's inner self. Julie Virgina Utberg, a sopho- 
more at Louisburg College, is a prep. But on 
certain days she can be caught wearing jeans 
with holes where the knees are. Julie believes 
that expressing yourself through your cloth- 
ing is acceptable just as long as you don't 
express too much of your body. So, what does 
one do when there is nothing to wear? Throw 
on anything that reflects what is on the in- 
side, and tell others that expressionism is in 

You must satisfy yourself first according to Carol 

It s not hard to take it easy when you are as relaxed 
as Jim Chadwick. 

A smile is worth a thousand words as seen here by 
Rob Hockersmith and Thomas Vassallo.

Black History Month 

February is the time that we celebrate Black 
History Month. Louisburg College celebrat- 
ed this month by devoting a week to broth- 
erhood and unity. Charles Johnson was the 
coordinator of these events which made up 
our celebration. The Martin Luther King 
Commemoration, People of Color, Racism 
Id. The Black Church, and Gospelfest, de- 
lighted and enlightend audiences to the 
awareness of themselves and others. The 
goal of each program was for each person 
who attended to leave much more aware of
