Nineteen eighty-eight 
can best be de- 
scribed as a year in motion 
throughout lUP. 

As each month passed 
during the academic year, 
moie and more changes 
were noticeable through 
campus and around 

Fail enrollment reached 
record heights with 18,405 
students at the Indiana 
campus, an increase of 157 
from fall of 1986. This fig- 
ure surprised admissions of- 
ficials who estimated a de- 
clining enrollment due to a 
decrease of 18 to 25-year- 
olds. Along with the in- 
crease of students, howev- 
er, may come a tuition 
increase in the 1988-89 
year, as well as definite 
raises in residence hall and 
health fees. 

The university's Capital 
Campaign surpassed all ex- 
pectations by raising $4.2 
million, 170 percent of their 
minimum goal. Funds from 
the campaign will be used 
to increase funding of exist- 
ing scholarship programs, 
pay for at least five distin- 
guished professorships, ren- 
ovate Breezdale mansion on 
campus as an alumni and 
community center, and ex- 
pand progiams on branch 
campuses in Kittaning and 

Also, the 1987 Indian 
football team went farther 
than ever before by win- 
ning their second PSAC 
state title in a row against 
West Chester and advanc- 
ing to the NCAA Division II 
National playoffs. 


Perhaps the most vis- 
ible sign of the year 
in motion was the ever-pre- 
sent construction around 

Visitors to the campus 
. who haven't seen it in a few 
years may thini< they 
stopped at the wrong uni- 
versity: Pratt Drive was re- 
placed by a cul-de-sac end- 
ing at the HUB and a 
lighted walkway extending 
to Esch and Wallace halls. 
Around the Oak Grove, Wal- 
ler Hall was closed for reno- 
vations and the steps in 
front of Leonard and Wilson 
Halls were rebuilt during 
the winter. 

The cogeneration plant 
started operating in full ca- 
pacity in the fall although a 
pipeline mix-up caused 
damage. Also visible around 
campus were the huge oil 
derricks which drilled four 
wells to general natural gas 
for the cogen plant. 

lUP took a step in simpli- 
fying the registration pro- 
cess as it implemented a 
test-run in which 548 stu- 
dents participated by

A Year In Mi'iior, / 

Our way of living at lUP is one 
that keeps us constantly in 
motion. From running to classes all day 
to partying, exercising, studying or re- 
laxing at night, there's not much time 
for boredom. For many of us, this fast- 
paced lifestyle is quite a change from 
the way we're used to living at home. 


Amy Thewes 


Robin Crawley 

Gone are the days of home-cooked 
meals and warm nights on a thick mat- 
tress. Instead, we trade these for caf 
food, Sheetz dogs and dormitory beds. 
Our days fly by with exams and papers 
and we sometimes find that even all- 
nighters don't help us to get the "A" we 
all desire. To let this frustration out, we 
______^^ share a variety of 

methods. Some look 
Editor: immediately to 
sports: smashing a 
racquetball, sweat- 
ing through aerobics 
or rolling through a 
game of mud football 
are great ways to 
clear our test-fried 
minds. Others look 
for less painful meth- 
,^______^ ods of release, such 

as going to a movie 
on campus or at one of the malls, taking 
advantage of an Activities Board event, 
partying uptown or around campus, or 
simply relaxing with a bowl of popcorn 
and the television. Our lifestyle at lUP 
is also reflected in our clothing. When 
waking for an 8:00 class at 7:45, some 
abandon any thought of fashion for a 
ballcap and sweats. The typical rainy 
Indiana day also makes it difficult for 
one to sport the new shoes, knowing 
they'll be ruined by the rain-and-mud 
filled sidewalks. But despite our indi- 
vidual differences, the fact that we're 
all lUP students means we share a com- 
mon lifestyle.

Alumni Come Home 
For The Holidays 

It's Friday, October 9, 
1987, late afternoon- 
/eai-ly evening. You pull 
into the semi-recognizable cam- 
pus for that yearly collegiate tra- 
dition rooted deep in welcoming, 
reminiscing and partying. 

You are an lUP alumni and 
this is Homecoming '87. 

Unfortunately, given all of the 
construction both past and pre- 
sent, you'ie not quite sure if this 
is the same university fiom 
which you graduated one, two, 
five, or even twenty years ago. 

After approaching Zink Hall, 
the new home of the homeconing 
carnival, you're reminded that in- 
deed, this is lUP, and that you 
could register as a visiting alum- 
nus at the registration tent. 

If one thing made this year's 
festivities more memorable than 
those of the recent past, it was 
the weather. Contrary to Indiana 
tradition, the homecoming pa- 
rade and football game were 
viewed in sunny, even warm 
weather- with no rain in sight for' 
the day. 

The theme of this year's home- 
coming was "Holidays," and the 
fact that thousands of students, 
family and alumni made it 
thr'ough the day without geting 
wet was enough reason to 

No that UP homecoming par- 
tiers need another reason to par- 
ty. This year was filled with the 
usual festivities which adorn 
each year's weekend in October. 

The celebration officially be- 
gan Saturday morning with the 
Homecoming parade. Spectators 
lined the parade route to see area 
marching bands, military regi- 

ments, and the ever-popular 
shriners riding atop every possi- 
ble type of transportation, from 
mini-corvettes to mini-dune bug- 
gies. Highlights of the par-ade in- 
cluded Alpha Phi Omega's fir'st 
place float, "The grinch that stole 
Christmas," the ll'P Marching 
band, and of course homecoming 

This year's King and Queen 
were Tim Bukowski and Laurel 
Pagoda, with first runners-up Je- 
rome Moore and AnneMarie Ag- 
new. Branch campus kings and 
queens wer'e Pete Matthews and 
Kelli Zwickle from Pun.xsutaw- 
ney and Daum Corey and Su- 
zanne Stitely from Kittaning. 

After the parade, many specta- 
tors moved onward to the R and P 
lot to another favorite lUP past- 
time: tailgating. 

Partiers young and old packed 
the lot next to the stadium, and 
left thousands of bottles and cans 
behind them after- the university 
instituted the no-keg policy at 
tailgating events. This rule ap- 
parently didn't deter anyone 
from drinking, and the happy 
tailgater's then moved on to 
Miller stadium and the Clarion- 
lUP matchup. 

The Indians defeated Clar'ion 
24-12 with a strong defensive 
game in which the Eagles were 
held to 39 yards on the ground. 

After the game ended, fans 
dispersed to the mud-filled carni- 
val or back to the tailgating to 
prepare for one last night of see- 
ing friends, catching up on the 
present, and talking and laughing 
about the past.

Here Come The Floats! 

Floats aie probably the 
most visibly fun part of 
homecoming. But have 
you ever thought about the work 
that goes into a float? Two Greek 
organizations were willing to tell 
us how their floats were made. 
Zeta Tau Alpha and Delta Sig- 
ma Phi dedicated their 1987 float 
to the 100th birthday of the Unit- 
ed Way. Planning for the design 
of the float was selected by the 
chapter members with the con- 
sent of the local Lnited Way rep- 
resentative. The Zetas and Delta 
Sigs began to build the float two 
weeks in advance to assure plen- 
ty of time for perfection. The 
"dirty work" of the actual build- 
ing of the base structure and the 
chicken wire attachment was left 
to the brothers, while the ZTA 
sisters glued and pomped the 
brightly colored float. The float 
was completed a few days early, 
so all involved could relax and 
enjoy the homecoming festivities. 
Although their float received 
only average award standing, the 
Homecoming Committee was very 
proud that Zetas and Delta Sigs 
had chosen to involve a national 
organization in HP's 1987 cele- 
bration: they are encouraging 
that this behavior is repeated in 
the coming years. 

"The Grinch." Dr. Seuss" clas- 
sic Christmas thief, also stole 
first place for Alpha Phi Omega 
the National Service Fraternity 
in this year's Homecoming 

A-Phil-0's float, titled "The 
Grinch that Stole Christmas." 
was judged on originality, 
amount of movement, use of 
theme and overall performance. 
The float had 18 moving parts 
including the Grinch. whose head 
and arm moved: his dog. Max. 
whose head and tail moved: a 
train, which chugged around a 
twirling Christmas tree: and cyl- 
inders spinning with the message 
"Happy Holidays." 

A-Phil-0's road to victory was 
rough— literally ! Shortly before 
dawn on the morning of the pa- 
rade, a few of the brothers gath- 
ered at the float's location in the 
White Township Municipal Build- 
ing to help move it to the begin- 
ning of the parade route— a dis- 
tance of about three miles. 

Normally a three-mile trip 
would be no problem, but unfor- 
tunately, the float was over VI 
feet tali, and tree branches along 
the route had to he pushed aside 
so that the float wouldn't be de- 
stroved. It was a long three 


The float was shaped like a 
huge sled. At the back of the sled 
was a giant sack filled with toys 
and presents that, according to 
Dr. Seuss' story, the Grinch stole 
from the Whos in Whoville. In the 
middle of the float was the giant 
spinning Christmas tree encircled 
by the little train. The Grinch 
and Max stood at the front of the 
float. Topping it all off was the 
little Whomobile that was pulled 
behind the float. 

Many people wondered how 
the float's moving parts worked, 
but that wasn't as complicated as 
it may have looked. Except for 
the little train, all the parts were 
operated by a pulley system con- 
trolled by people hiding in the 
giant sack. 

The train was pulled around 
its track by an A-Phi O's little 
brother from the Big Brothers 
and Big Sisters program. 

All of the effort resulted in a 
great win for the fraternity. In 
keeping with its service tradi- 
tions, A-Phi-0 donated the 5300 
in first place prize money to

Indiana: Tradition 
And Diversity 

" ... at

DDwnto'.vn Indiana, also 
known as "uptown," 
holds something for ev- 
eryone from the weekend window 
shopper to the weekend bar- 

During the day, the streets of 
downtown are filled with busi- 
nessmen dining for lunch at 
Isaacs, Culpeppers, the Classroom 
or Tom's, to name a few. Students 
roam Philadelphia street be- 
tween classes for that last-min- 
ute birthday card or school sup- 
ply, and usually end up making a 
common stop at the Cashstream 
machine to re-line their wallets. 

These features are common of 
any town, but at night, Indiana 
holds a personality all its own. 
For at night, the stores are closed 
and the bars are open. 

Diversity is the main attrac- 
tion for the uptown crowd. For 
the laid-back sort who like to be 
able to talk without screaming 
and perhaps even sit down, H.B. 
Culpeppers or Coney Island are 
favorite spots. Culpeppers' happy 
hour is littered with students 

and townspeople alike, all un-

For those who are in more of a

Relationships— An Important Part Of Life 

"These re- 
Idtionships .

great hold on 
us, and make 
for many 
memories. " 

Relationships. They aie one 
of the most important fac- 
tois in oui' lives. What 
would you do without your- hest 
friend'.' Or your boyfriend or 

Relationships form during the 
earliest years of life and continue on 
into the last years of life. Some peo- 
ple can still lememhei' their very 
first friend, as eaiiy as age thiee or 
four. Everyone lemembers theii- 
first love. These relationships among 
other people outside the family have 
a great hold on us, and make foi' 
many memories. 

The best part of friendship is the 
memories you share with your 
friend. The first slumber- party, the 
first day of school, the first co-ed 
birthday party where you played 
"Spin the Bottle"— memories not to 
be tr'aded in in a lifetime. Then as 
you and your' friend got older, there 
was the first split when a boyfriend 
or girlfriend. came along, whether it 
was your-s or- your friend's. 

Now there is a differ-ent stage of 
life. The first love is always some- 
thing special. Suddenly you've real- 
ized that the opposite sex isn't so 
bad after all. The novelty of spend- 
ing time with someone of the oppo- 
site sex often permeates every area 
of life. Friends ai-e kind of pushed to 
the wayside for- a while. 

Couples have great memories too. 
How about the first date, the fir'st 
prom, the first kiss? Of course, there 

are arguments, but what about the 
first time you "made up"? 

Eventually, when the head rush 
of first love wears off, fr-iends are 
immediately back in the picture. 
People can learn to balance their 
friendships and love relationships. 
That's the best time of life. When 
you go to college, wherever you may 
go, you develo[) relationships that 
will last thr-ought life.

marketing, says about his best 
friend, "We buddy up for- studies and 
study breaks — drinking and

"We're so opposite," says Leena 
Petak, a senior in biology education, 
about her- boyfriend. "That's why we 
get along so well, 1 guess." 

What would we do without our 
friends? Who could we confide in 
about our- escapades and our- argu- 
ments with our- "better- halves?" 
And speaking of girlfriends and boy- 
friends, without them we'd have no 
one for formats, date parties and in- 
timate moments. Relationships are 
vital, no matter- what age you ar-e.

"Practice safe sex" and "Be 
wise, condomize" were the re- 
peated slogans seen and heard 
throughout AIDS Awareness 
Week held April 5-8. 

The university formed an AIDS 
awareness committee this year 
which adressed conceits of Ac- 
quired Immune Definciency Syn- 
drome as related to college stu- 
dents and to educate them on 

"The committee felt this is an 
issue of international importance 
and that (AIDS) is a disease that 
is critical to people in young age 
groups," said Dr. Anne Katz, 
chairperson of the committee. 
"Ignorance is a tremendous prob- 
lem there." 

AIDS Awareness Week, spon- 
sored by the committee, the 
Women's Advisory Council, and 
Greek Affairs, consisted of lec- 
tures presented by health experts 
on topics such as "AIDS and HIV 
Personal and Public Health Is- 
sues," "The Legal Aspects of 
AIDS," and "The Emotional As- 
pects of AIDS; A Metaphor for 
Loss,"as well as condom booths 
set up in the HUB and Oak Grove. 
The lecture series was capped 

by a panel discussion on student 
concerns of the di.sease. 

According to panelist Dr. Allen 
Andrew of the lUP biology de- 
partment, "There are only two 
foi'ms of safe sex — abstinence 
and masturbation," and that 
"safer sex" is a better term to 
use. Even with condom use there 
is no guarantee of preventing 
AIDS ti'ansmission, he said. 

"AIDS is the first epidemic 
woild-wide that is acquired," said 
Phoebe Cressman of the Pennsyl- 
vania Health Department during 
the discussion. "You have to work 
to get AIDS ... it is preventable." 
According to the Philadelphia 
Inquirer, 55,000 people in the 
United States have been stricken. 
30,000 of these cases resulted in 

The AIDS virus is transmitted 
in three main ways: having sex 
with an infected person, sharing 
needles and syringes with illegal 
drug users, and infection of a 
baby during birth from an infect- 
ed mother. 

Dispelling the rumours sur- 
rounding the contraction of AIDS 
was another goal of the aware- 
ness week. 

It is not po.ssible to get AIDS by 
being around someone with it, 
through casual contact, kissing, 
hugging, or touching something

To date, there is no treatment 
or a permanent cure for AIDS or 

any of the infections associated 
with the disease, and no end is in 
sight. Meanwhile, the only known 
method for the reduction of the 
virus is education. 

"We want to bring the campus 
to a point of awareness that ev- 
erybody should be concerned 
with," said Katz, who said she 
received "nothing but positive 
reactions" about the event. In ad- 
dition, the university has made

'hat's one thing that lUP 
faculty, staff and com- 
niutef students have in 
common? Piobiems with paiking 
on campus, said Eugene Thomas 
of the lUP campus police. 

The next question you may asi< 
is, what is being done about the 
pioblem? Robert Marx, the direc- 
tor of campus planning, said each 
year about two projects involving 
paving are done. 

"What we have been doing 
here is building new facilities and 
upgrading existing facilities foi' 
parking," said Marx. The student 
union parking area and the lot 
located outside Whitmyre Hall 
are two examples of this work. 

Marx said that he doesn't re- 
ceive many of the complaints on 
parking problems, but said most 
are received by campus police. 

"There's 4lways complaints 
whenever you have a controlled 
situation of parking like we have. 
You're going to have complaints 
because everybody likes to park 
where they're not allowed to 
park," said Thomas. 

Thomas said that the campus 
police do not like to tow cars, but 
if someone is unauthorized in a 
reserved space on campus or is a 
consistent violator of parking in 
fire lanes oi' handicapped spaces, 
they will be towed. The 80 re- 
served parking spaces on campus 
are paid for each semester and 
when someone who is unautho- 
rized paiks in the space, the per- 
son permitted to park there can 

call campus police and have the 
car towed, said Thomas. 

One of the biggest complaints 
about parking on campus is that 
people can't find a parking space, 
said Thomas. There is about an 
even number of complaints from 
faculty, staff and students, he 

Adult student Karen Thomas 
said she doesn't find it a pioblem 
to park early in the morning be- 
fore an 8 a.m. class, but if she 
comes to campus later in the 
morning, she has difficulty find- 
ing a space. 

"There are not enough spaces 
anywhere," she said. "There 
needs to be more central 

Fi'eshman Susan Fox said she 
has had similar' experience with 
finding a parking space. She too 
had problems finding a parking 
place in the latter part of the 

"I was lucky to find a pai'king 
space there (the .Memorial Field 
House parking lot)," said Fox. 

Thomas said if drivers went to 
one of the larger lots and then 
went to the stadium lot, they 
would save the time it takes to 
drive around campus searching 
for a space and be able to walk to 
their office or class in a shorter 
amount of time. 

One way to help diminish the 
parking problem would be for 
more people to carpool, said 
Thomas. Campus police have a 
listing of all drivers who would 

be willing to carpool. which is 
taken from the application form 
for parking permits, said Thomas.

Series Gives Big Name Entertainment 

Doug Mdcek 

Every year the Ai'ist's Series 
brings great entertainment 
to JUP. This year was no 
exception. Here are the high- 
lights of the shows: 

Ben Vereen came in Septem- 
ber. Live audiences are Vereen's 
first love, and the magic he creat- 
ed on Broadway has provided the 
perfect springboard for his caba- 
ret act. 

The consummate entertainei', 
Ben Veieen has left his mari< on 
the Broadway stage, the concert 
stage and the screen, pleasing au- 
diences throughout the world. It 
is rare for- a performer to influ- 
ence an ar-ray of mediums with 
the brilliance of Ben Vereen. 

The first time a major Chinese 
orchestra played in the U.S., they 
played at IL'P. We were the first 
visit in the Chinese Philharmonic 
Orchestra's tour in October-. The 
audience was enthralled with the 
performance and especially the 
solos of the 18-year'-old Wang 
Xiao Dong, who played violin. 
Zuohuang Chen was the conduc- 
tor of the group, and at the end of 
the performance, the orchestra 
received two standing ovations. 

"Sophisticated Ladies" opened 
in December with the announce- 

ment "Ladies and gentlemen, the 
music of Duke Ellington!" Over 
20 of Ellington's most famous 
songs were featured. The dancing 
was fantastic, from its kick-lines 
to its dramatic gymnastics, in- 
cluding back-flips and cart- 
wheels. The cast proved again 
and again that it meant business 
from the ver'y first song. 

The spring semester started 
with "Big River," an adaptation 
from Mark Twain's Huckleberry 
Finn. The crowd was kept antici- 
pating the show, which started 
an hour- and a half late. Some 
considered it one of the best trav- 
eling shows ever- seen. 

The performer playing Huck 
Finn was vital, as he narrated 
the story and sang. He kept the 
audience in touch with what was 
going on. A pulley system pulled 
the raft along the stage, making 
the audience feel as though it 
was following it down the river-. 
Those who stayed for- the perfor- 
mance enjoyed themselves. 

On March 18, Fisher Auditori- 
um was entr-anced by Waves, a 
Philadelphia-based dance compa- 
ny. Waves presented music in mo- 
tion, or what choreographer and 
director Shimon Braun called a 

"celebration of music, of bodies, 
of rhythms, of connections, of life 
and for life. 

Waves displayed a variety of 
styles throughout the show: 
Break-dance and gymnastics 
wer'e prevalent, with one fea- 
tured r-oller-skating routine. 

April br-()ught Wynton Marsalis 
to Fisher- Auditorium. Marsalis 
led his jazz quintet through two 
and one-half hours of the hottest 
jazz Indiana has seen inyears. 

After- playing such favorites as 
George Gershwin's "Embraceable 
You," John Coltr-ane's "Miles 
Mode," and ll'P's fight song 
"Cher-okee," .Mar-salis accented 
the night with his own "J Mood" 
(the title track from his latest 
album, "Blac-k Codes fr-om The 
I'ndergr-ound"), drum feature 
"Down Home with Homey," and 
the 1940s showtune "Autumn

"Mr. lUP VIII Is 


Awarding the title of Mr. 
lUP VIII to sophomore 
Darrin Wheeler on Sat- 
urday. October 2i in Fisher Audi- 
torium made the months of plan- 
ning and preparation for the 
contest, by Alpha Gamma Delta 
sorority, a success. 

Wheeler, sponored by Zeta Tau 
Alpha, did not win it easily, how- 
ever. He competed against eight 
other good-looking and talented 
IL'P students that kept the near 
capacity audience enthusiastic 
from beginning to end. 

To start the show, the contes- 
tants danced to "Come Go with 
Me," and introduced t)iemselves. 
Each wore a T-shirt representing 
their sponsors. The next section 
of the contest, won by. Wheeler, 
was the swimwear competition, 
where the contestants did the 
limbo and danced to "Wipe Out." 
This proved to be a real crowd 

The talent competition was by 
far the best part of the contest. 
Each contestant had his own act 
that displayed his talents and 
originality, giving each guy an op- 
portunity to shine. 

Wheeler performed a dance 
number to Whitney Houston's 
"Thinking .About Y'ou," and soph- 
omore David Stauffer, sponsored 
by Delta Omicron, won the talent 
competition with his rendition of 
the piano piece "Chachaturian 

Taccata." This was not the only 
area that Stauffer excelled in. He 
also won the formal wear and 
spirit competitions, being the 
competitor with the most dona- 
tions to the Juvenile Diabetes 
Foundation (JDF), AGD's philan- 
thropy. To top it off. Stauffer was 
named the first runner-up, tying 
with junior Joe Strauss, spon- 
sored by Lambda Chi Alpha. 
Strauss sang "Sister Goldenhair" 
by America. 

Second runner-up went to 
Larry Wood, sponsored by Phi 
Delta Theta. Wood sang and 
played the piano to "Sometimes 
When We Touch," by Dan Hill. 

The other contestants' perfor- 
mances included a comedy act by 
senior Rob Ceribelli, sponsored by 
Sigma Chi. Ceribelli won the con- 
geniality award given by the oth- 
er contestants. .Alpha Xi Delta's 
sponsor, freshman Eric Korpela, 
stripped to "You've Got the Look" 
by Prince, and senior .Michael 
O'Connor of Phi Sigma Kappa 
danced and sang "Knock Three 
Times" by Tony Orlando and 
Dawn. O'Connor did his best to 
portray Orlando— platform shoes 
and all. 

Junior Todd Shasko, sponsored 
by Sigma Tau Gamma, had the 
crowd's attention during his 
dance performance to "1 Want 
Your Sex" by George Michael and 
Delta Tau Delta's senior Steve 

Seifried's act to 'Jail House 
Rock" showed a little of every- 
thing, from trumpet playing to 
song and dance. 

These contestants weren't the 
only ones performing. Miss ll"P, 
Alyce Grimm, sang "Superman" 
and Chris Bertani, an IIP stu- 
dent, performed a comedy act 
that included impersonations of 
Robin Leach, Jimmy Stewart, 
Jerry Lewis and the Church Lady 
from Saturday Night Live. 

The most touching act of the 
night was performed by Walt 
McCready, last year's Mr. IIP. He 
sang "Memories— The Way We 
Were," and dedicated it to his 
girlfriend, who died of leukemia. 
He received a standing ovation, 
and tears were evident on many 
of the crowd's faces. 

Jennifer Gleeson, chairperson 
of the contest, felt that the con- 
test was fair and went extremely 
well. "We proved it's hard to tell 
who'll win," Gleeson said. "The 
guy that excels deserves to win, 
though all nine of these guys co- 
operated and had fun. Everyone 
is always in for a surprise in the 

Besides being a fun and upbeat 
show, the contest managed to 
raise over S1800 for JDF, Alpha 
Gamma Delta's philanthropy 
since 1979.

Miss Black IIP for 1988 is . 
. . WiUa Gotten. 
Sponsored by the 
brothers of Phi Beta Sigma Pater- 
nity Inc. and the Black Cultural 
Center, the 12th annual Miss 
Black IL"P pageant was held April 
9, 1988, in the HUB .Multi-Purpose

A Music Lover's Fantasy 

Progressive bands the 11th 
Hour, the Affordable Floors 
and lUP's own The Clarks 
performed to a crowd of 400 scream- 
ing idiots November 6 in the Hadley 
Union Building. The Clarks opened 
the show with a 45-minute set of 
their own rousing tunes, songs 
which won them the title of runners- 
up in a tri-state Battle of the Bands 
competition. For their encore The 
Clarks came back on stage with The 
nth Hour, a popular Pittsburgh 
band, and together they performed a 
rousing rendition of U2's "Electric 
Co." The 11th Hour then played 
their original tunes for yet another 
45-minute set. 

Finally the headlining act, record- 
ing artists The Affordable Floors, 
took the stage and played their own 
progressive brand of music. The 
crowd enjoyed this very much. I 
mean, like, a whole lot. 

"It was a rousing performance," 
said Bill Halloran, AB chairman and 
author of this article. "1 would say it 
has been one of the most successful 
events we've had all year, and I'm 
very proud of all the people who 
worked so hard to make this kind of 
scintillating entertainment 

Halloran credits AB Contempo- 

rary Music Committee Chairperson 
Nancy Costa with organizing the 

The Penn article following the 
Halloween Lip-Sync Contest spelled 
it out: "AB Chairman Wins Contest." 
But, dubious though it seemed. Bill 
Halloran, along with good friend pal 
and confidant Joe Slick (his real 
name— honest), edged out the com- 
petition in what may have been the 
last Activities Board-sponsoied lip- 
sync contest ever. 

The gala event was highlighted by 
the fact that most of the audience 
came in costume, in true Halloween 
fashion. The audience thrilled to 
rousing performances by all of the 
lip-sincing acts, which ranged from 
Sheena Easton to Aerosmith. Placing 
third was Kristi Lyie, who according 
to Matt Hughes's Penn article, "did a 
semi-erotic dance to Sheena Easton's 
"So Far, So Good." Scantily-clad Lyle 
pranced about the stage in high 
heels while she warmed the hearts 
of the judges and audience with her 
exuberant smile. 

Second place went to Eileen 
Houghton, who dressed up as a very 
pregnant woman and lip-synced Ma- 
donna's "Papa Don't Preach." Al- 
though allegations were levelled 
that she had merely slipped a large 

shirt over a bass drum, the sight gag 
was enough to garner her a second- 
place finish. 

Halloran and Slick, in their first 
appearance ever as a lip-syncing 
team, captured first place by basi- 
cally plagiarizing the Paul Simon/ 
Chevy Chase video of Simon's song 
"You Can Call Me. Al." According to 
Slick, whose deadpan imitation of 
the miniscule Simon brought the 
house down. "1 can't believe we 
won." Halloran credits their victory, 
saying "There's a delicate balance in 
the comic chemistry between Joey 
and myself, but essentially Joey's 
the top banana; 1 reel the audience 
in and Joey slaps them upside the 

Despite the event's success, the 
Activities Board decided that as far 
as the lUP student body was con- 
cerned, the age of the Lip-Sync Con- 
test was indeed ovei'. "There just 
weren't enough people willing to 
participate, but 1 think that's more a 
reflection of changing tastes than a 
labeling of the student body as apa- 
thetic," said the ever-hopeful

"Where Do You Live?" 

Students seek off-campus 
housing for many rea- 
sons, but a need for 
more privacy, more quiet and 
more freedom are three main 
benefits found off-campus. 

Many students complain that 
the excitement of living in the 
residence halls soon loses its ap- 
peal and that's when they begin 
considering to live off-campus. 

"There are just too many peo- 
ple crammed into dorms," a soph- 
omore economics major said. 
"They are too noisy and too re- 
strictive. 1 would rather struggle 
with inconvenience such as dis- 
tance and high rent than live in 
the dorms," she added. 

"I like living off-campus tre- 
mendously because it is much 
quieter," a psychology graduate 
student said. "You don't find that 
in the dorms around here," she 

"The best part of off-campus 
housing is the living space. You 
have in most cases a separate liv- 
ing area, bedroom area and kitch- 
en area," said a sophomore jour- 
nalism major. "It is really great 
to have a place of my own, not 
sharing with all those other stu- 

dents," she added. 

And more space means more 
freedom and privacy. 

"I don't feel as restricted as 1 
did when 1 lived on campus," said 
a sophomore finance major. "1 
can now have as much of my per- 
sonal belongings with me and not 
feel cramped. Plus I can enter- 
tain a large number of people 
comfortably now," he added. 

"1 don't mind when my room- 
mates have parties," a resident of 
an off-campus dormitory said "1 
enjoy being able to kick back and 
enjoy myself. College life would 
be boring without the fun we 
have here, and that's not possible 
in the dorms," he added. 

There are those people who 
like the dorms. Residence halls 
are a good way to meet people 
during the freshman (and even 
later) years. 

As freshmen, most people are 
apprehensive about meeting peo- 
ple. Some are homesick for their 
high school friends, and some are 
an.xious about meeting anyone. 
But with 30-50 other people on a 
floor, the chances of not meeting 
someone are impossible. Impossi- 
ble only because there is "the 


Roommates provide the friend- 
ship needed the first few days at 
lUP. Getting to know one another 
is exciting and time-consuming. 
(.And where would we be without 
our roommate's clothes?) 

After a while, floormates are 
like friends and there are recog- 
nizable quad faces. In visiting 
quad friends, one advantage the 
dorms has is the connecting 
floors between buildings, so the 
rain, snow and wind aren't felt by 
visitors traveling from building to 

Jocelyn Reeve, a freshman liv- 
ing in Shafer Hall, says, "I like 
living in the dorms because most 
of my friends are here and I can 
visit them any time of the day or 

Even in the sophomore and ju- 
nior years the dorms provide last- 
ing relationships. Dashing across 
the hall to visit is definitely easi- 
er than dashing across campus. 

Whether it be dorms or off- 
campus life you choose, there are 
attractions to each that will sat- 
isfy anybody.

A Fun Dilemma 
What To Eat 

Food. We need it to sur- 
vive, but we not only eat 
food for survival, we eat 
it for other reasons. Eat- 
ing can be a hobby, a love, a way 
to combat stress, or a way to 

There are people who eat just 
for the fun of it. The thought of 
food just makes them happy. 
These are the people who come 
home and sit down in front of the 
TV, prepared for the commercial 
breaks, so they can rush to the 
refrigerator or the local fast food 

Some people who are unlucky 
in the love department would 
rather get to know food than the 
person of the opposite sex be- 
cause food doesn't judge, nag, ar- 
gue or complain. Food is a true 
friend. It can't talk back! 

On the rebound of a problem, 
argument or hectic situation, 
many turn to food as a pacifier. 
Eating helps them to relax and 
forget about things for a while. 
There's no better way to cele- 
brate than eating with friends 
and family, whether it be for a 
birthday. Thanksgiving, Christ- 
mas or a plain ol' get-together. 

At college, these ways to in- 
dulge in food are always in play. 
When we first entered lUP as 
freshmen, we all had eating 
"hang-ups." We wanted home 
cooking, but realized our tastes 
would change as we were intro- 
duced to cafeteria food. Along 
with all the starch and grease 
came the calories, and eventually 
the pounds, which is all part of 
the infamous "Freshman 151" 

Debbie Saly, an upperclass- 
man. doesn't want to gain weight 
even if she isn't a freshman. She 
says, "I'll try any diet to see if I 

can do it." And as for Stacey Ye- 
lich, she says, "Food is my life. I 
live to eat and eat to live." 

Ordering out also became the 
craze when first entering IIP, 
and it is still one of the fastest 
and most popular ways to eat. 
Take-out pizza and subs satisfied 
the "late-night munchies," espe- 
cially for Debbie Karla, who likes 
ordering pizza or making runs to 
7-Eleven every other night. Deb- 
bie Echon counts her change 
when she's low on cash, so she 
can order out. And for those peo- 
ple who live off-campus, their 
cupboards are stocked for the se- 
mester with the ever-popular 
macaroni and cheese. Senior 
Kathy Steele says, "1 like to eat 
something fast and easy, that I 
can make in a matter of ten 

Jennie Castiglione has her rea- 
sons for eating differently. She is 
a "health nut." She says, "My 
roommate gets hungry for pizza, 
and I'd rather have a can of 
green beans. Besides, there's only 
80 calories in a can. I also eat 
whole wheat bread." To top it off, 
she takes vitamins, and says most 
people don't care what they eat. 
"No one really knows what they 
put in their bodies." 

So you see, food is all around 
us. We eat because it's the thing 
to do. And you only live once, 
right'' Why not enjoy what you 
like to eat, even if it includes 
"junk food." .And remember, no 
matter what your eating habits 
are, if college food has left a "bad 
taste" in your mouth, it's always 
great to go home and have some 
real home cooking!

The Reason For Being At lUP 

Most students look for- 
waid to the end of the 
semester so they can re- 
lax and have fun over the break. 
But before they can unwind from 
a semester's stresses, students 
must survive FINALS WEEK! 

Finals week means different 
things to different people. For 
some students, final examina- 
tions represent a last-ditch effort 
to earn a certain grade. Some stu- 
dents view finals just as they 
would any other test, except 
more tests are scheduled in a 
tighter time period. Still others 
see finals week as a vacation 
from the routine of classes and 
spend the time socializing. 

The majority of Il"P students 
seem to take finals week serious- 
ly though. 

Kathy Rosick, a junior commu- 
nications media major, said, "I 
organize myself for finals. I start

Matt Kizak, a sophomore 
studying human resource man- 
agement, also prepares himself in 
advance for finals week. 

"1 outline my chapters, take 
notes from the book and then 
compare book notes and class 
notes. Then I study and I review- 
right before the test. 1 try to orga- 
nize myself ahead of time, but I 
usually cram for unimportant 

Many students find that their 
study habits change once they 
have experienced the stress of 
finals week. 

Pattie Booze, a sophomore 
journalism major, said she no 
longer studies the same way she 
did while a freshman and in high 

"Now 1 try to get things done 
early and space them out. I need 
complete quiet while I study— no 
TV or radio in the background. I 
also do my hardest or least favor- 
ite subjects first." 

Jeff Rabak, a freshman pre- 
med student, has also learned to 
study in advance. 

"I started studying a week be- 

fore finals began. 1 studied ap- 
proximately 10 hours a day." 

Some students try to put off 
studying as long as possible. Most 
people have heard about "all- 
nighters," all night cramming 
sessions, before they came to col- 
lege; and some people carry on 
the tradition once they arrive. 

Phil Silvio, a sophomore study- 
ing computer science, said. "I 
cram for finals. I don't get a 
chance to really relax all week 
except for going to the cafeteria's 
snack nights with my friends!" 

Dave Eshenower, a senior fin- 
ance/MIS major, said, "Usually I 
go three or four nights without 
sleep. Unfortunately, I struggle to 
stay awake during the tests; but 
somehow 1 usually find a way to 
pull a decent grade on most of the 

Regardless of their own per- 
sonal studying preferences, all of

one must find a studying style 
that best meets his or her own 
needs and abilities.

"Have A Nice Holiday!" 

Children usually stop get- 
ting excited about Hal- 
loween when they are 
12 or so. When freshmen enter 
college they are surprised to see 
what a fun holiday Halloween 
can be for young adults. Dorms 
and private houses are decorated 
with jack-o-lanterns, paper 
ghosts, vampires, skeletons and 
posters of ugly witches are on 
almost every door. There are cos- 
tume parties, where even shy 
people feel free to mingle while 
their identities are concealed. 

Costumed IIP students can be 
seen wandering around campus 
and the Indiana area. These ugly 
creatures are even seen uptown. 
Haunted houses are held to 
raise funds for needy groups 
while entertaining people of all 
ages. IL'P students are proud to 
make and perform in these 
houses, as both students and 
townspeople pay to go through 
them. The RHA-sponsored house, 
held in Whitmyre Hall, had the 
theme "Your Worst Nightmare." 
In order to enable the crowds of 
people to enjoy it. the hall stayed 
open an e.xtra hour. 

This Halloween happened to 
fall on a Saturday, which intensi- 
fied the carefree feeling that 
most people seemed to feel. The 
weather helped too. Orange, yel- 
low and red leaves were on the 
ground, yet it warmed up a little 
for about a week to make this 
Halloween perfect. 

Thanksgiving break gave 

many students the relaxation 
that they needed after so many 
weeks of haid work. Before leav- 
ing for home, a lot of students 
enjoyed a buffet-style Thanksgiv- 
ing dinner at the cafeterias. 

Almost everyone brought 
Christmas decorations back with 
them. Doois, windows, porches 
and trees all sparkled with 
strings of lights. The Christmas 
tree lighting ceremony was held 
in front of Sutton Hall on Decem- 
ber 3. Christmas songs were sung 
by hundreds of people including 
"b Come, All Ye Faithful," "Joy 
to the World", ■■HarkI The Herald 
Angels Sing" and "Deck the 
Halls." Almost everyone sang 
along to the carols. 

As usual, during finals week 
the Co-Op Store had a sale on all 
IIP clothing. Friends and family 
received gifts like sweatshirts, 
glasses, mugs and license plates. 
In a sort of pre-Christmas spirit 
many parents sent support bas- 
kets and fruit baskets through 
the RHA. The gifts came at the 
perfect time, when thousands of 
students were starting to feel the 
pressures of finals. 

In the middle of January, peo- 
ple returned with twice as much 
luggage, full of new sweaters, ra- 
dios, games and other gifts. Most 
students were anxious to return. 
The break was needed after fin- 
als, but by the beginning of Janu- 
ary most students were starting 
to miss life at ILP. Returning to 
school was an event to look for- 

ward to.

Trying To Find A Balance 

The cim^ensus among 
man\ people in Indiana 
is that this town would 
be dead without lUP. Many IL'P 
students attest to this philoso- 
phy, but their interpretation is 
quite different. 

Not only do IIP students pa- 
tronize and support local busi- 
nesses, but their parents often do 
the same during breaks, week- 
ends, football games and special 
events. Local establishments ap- 
preciate the business that lUP 
draws and can rely heavily on 
this business for profit. But how- 
many times can a person walk 
into an establishment only to be 
assisted by an IL"P student'? 
Chances are . . . quite often. 

With increasing tuition and de- 
creasing aid available, many stu- 
dents join the part-time work 
force in order to subsidize loans 
from PHEAA, private banks or 
Mom and Dad. But if a student is 
wise, he can earn more than a 
paycheck; along with the money 
can come responsibility and 

The experience a student gains 
in a wisely chosen job can sur- 

pass the requirements of being 
just a resume-filler. Often, the 
general business knowledge 
gained in addition to the exper- 
tise one learns in the specific 
field may give that ever neces- 
sary edge sought after by so 
many prospective employers. 

However, not all IIP students 
are able to travel outside the con- 
fines of our university to an off- 
campus job. In these cases, cam- 
pus jobs become the logical and 
profitable alternative. With over 
150 campus offices, a student can 
have the opportunity to work, 
live and study within a two- or 
three-block area. College work- 
study is a popular program at 
IL'P. .Approximately 1350 stu- 
dents are on federal payroll and 
950 students are on state payroll 
per semester. Each office pays a 
student out of federal and state 
funds allocated to the office's 
budget. Campus employers rely 
heavily on the student body for 
much of their work force. Once 
again, if a student is wise, he may 
be able to use his campus employ- 
ment for experience as well as a 
pay check. 

So the next time you go to the 
mall, grocery store, bank, gas sta- 
tion, restaurant or any of the col- 
lege offices, take a look at the 
staff of the establishment— there 
is a good chance that an ILP face 
may be part of that staff. 

.Although not every ILP stu- 
dent can or will work during a 
semester, a great number of them 
will work during extended 
breaks. Their reasons for working 
mirror those of students who 
work while at campus: 

"I need spending money." 

"I have a loan payment due 

every month." 

"I have to help out my mom 

and dad." 

"My rent is due at the end of 

every month." 

"I didn't get very much aid." 

"I didn't get a red cent from 

the government." 

"I need money." 

"PHE.A.A screwed up again." 

ILP working students are an 
increasing majority and may turn 
out to be among the best quali- 
fied employees when they

Going In And

Fashion on campus re-

reasons at H'P, but the most 
overwhelming reason seems to be

mainly of blue jeans and 

"I usually get up five minutes 
before my class starts, so 1 just 
grab the first thing 1 see in my

most comfortable in them. 

"1 don't like jeans," she said.

John Kennedy, a senior biology 
major, .said once the temperature

him in anything but shorts. 

"I live in them in the summer, 
but when it's cold out, I don't 
care what I'm weaiing, as long as 
it's warm!" he said. 

Kelli Neyman, a freshman, 
said she tries to keep up with the 
latest styles. 

"I like acid-washed jeans, or 

whatever they're calling them 
now, and big bulky sweaters," 
she said. "It's tough, though, be- 
cause 1 have to buy my own 
clothes, and I don't always have 
the money to buy what 1 want." 

Kelli admits her biggest down- 
fall is buying accessories. 

"Even if I'm just wearing 
jeans, I like to dress them up with 
jewelry," she said. "1 spend a lot 
of money on earrings and shoes. 
I've got millions of them." 

Ed Critchlow, a sophomore ma- 
joring in elementary education, 
had a different outlook about 

"1 don't care what I look like 
when I go to class, so it doesn't 
matter what I wear," he said.

Weekends: Roadtrip Or Bust! 

Road trips have become 
almost as much a part 
of college life as any on- 
campus extra-curricular activity. 
Even for students who may not 
have access to their own cars on 
campus, road trippers somehow 
always manage to get to their 
destinations at the end of the 

Beth is the perfect example. A 
college sophomore, her goal this 
year is to visit a different place 
every weekend. Although she 
doesn't have a car on campus, she 
does manage to reach her 

One particular weekend, Beth 
decided to visit Maryland. But 
she had no transportation. She 
scheduled a bus for a Friday af- 
ternoon, and the night before she 
noticed a sign in the library: 
"Riders needed to Baltimore/D.C. 
area." What terrific luck!! She 
ran to the nearest phone. 

So much for the bus. A new 
road trip was in the works, and 
this one looked much more prom- 
ising. After all, buses are no fun. 
Chances are slim that bussers 
will be able to enjoy themselves 

on a long trip, especially if riding 
alone. But a trip with a friend, or 
even with someone unfamiliar 
who has offered a ride always 
leaves road trip entertainment 
open to just about anything. Be- 
sides, it's always interesting to 
get to know someone who's going 
in the same direction— you're 
bound to have something in

too-frequent need to roadtrip. 

"It's a get-away from school," she 

Perhaps the most popular of 
all reasons to roadtrip is for a fun 
vacation over spring break. "I'm 
just going all over— lots of places, 
lots of people to see," said lUP 
senior Gayle Schmidt. Gayle's 
"major road trip" will include vis- 
its Niagra Falls, eastern Pennsyl- 
vania and Georgetown. 

Also popular over spring break 
are road trips to various beaches 
almost anywhere between the 
Jersey Shore and Daytona Beach. 
Party vans and buses are always 
available for anyone who packs a 
bikini and a beer mug, and is 
ready for an always-fun road trip 
to the many sandy beaches that 
anxiously await college students 
during spring break weeks— 
which begin as early as the last 
of February and end as late as

CRS Boasts Variety At Low Cost 

Campus Recreation Services 
provides students, faculty 
and staff with interesting 
ways to relax. 

This year alone they've gone to 
Niagara Falls and many places in 
Pittsburgh such as Phipps Conserva- 
tory, Carnegie Museum and David 
Lawrence Convention Center. They 
also support skiing trips, ice skating 
and rock climbing with the area. 

CRS' main goal is to provide 
enough ways for students to enter- 
tain themselves at the smallest cost 
possible. Although there are always 
movies or parties to go to, CRS does 

out-of-the-ordinary things to inter- 
est people in other activities. 

The activities can range from 
highly physical to highly education- 
al. But whatever area it's in, the 
activity is more likely to catch atten- 
tion and keep it. With the lack of 
city activities in Indiana, people can 
go to the city through CRS. 

"CRS came about several years 
ago as a consolidation of different 
programs," said Dennis Hulings, di- 
rector of Hadley Union and campus 
recreation. It is supposed to coordi- 
nate different activities on campus. 

Hulings also said that when the 

plans were being made for the Had- 
ley Union Building, the recreation 
center was taken into account. The 
rec center is a convenient way to 
exercise and lose a few pounds. The 
proximity to campus is a definite 

Recently, CRS has had more and 
more people responding to its ser- 
vices. Hulings said attendance grows 
every year. More people should take 
advantage of what CRS offers— fun 
and relaxation at a cheap price. And 
who couldn't use both?

Pope John Paul II planned a ten-day 
tour of nine cities along the sunbelt. His 
tour was one of the most heavily guarded 
visits with protection everywhere along 
the route. 

Nationally, the federal courts barred an 
abortion law- requiring minors to notify 
parents or obtain a couit's peimission be- 
fore having an abortion, stating that it is 
an unconstitutional violation of a juve- 
nile's right to anonymity. 

The National Football League set its 
strike date for Sept. 22 if negotiations 
couldn't be reached with the owners. 

Due to the recent .AIDS scare, many 
college campuses have now added condoms 
to the other items that can be bought in 
the local vending machines. Sponsors of 
the condoms in the vending machines say 
that the machines provide anonymous, 
convenient 24-hour access to the condoms 
because many of the sexual encounters 
are unplanned and spontaneous. 


The search still continued for the 
arsonist suspected of setting fires 
which plagued the Indiana area during 
spring and summer. 

Sept. 17 marked 200 years after the 
signing of the constitution and Indiana 
celebrated. Some of the festivities in- 
cluded a Liberty Pageant, a walking 
tour and a parade. 

State law enforcement agencies were 
cracking down on usage of fake IDs. 
.Ma.ximum penalties for the forging of 
IDs is 10 years imprisonment and/or a 
$25,000 fine. The maximum penalty for 

tampering with records is five years in jail 
and/or a 510,000 fine. Many fake IDs were 
discovered on the IL'P campus and those in- 
volved were apprehended and charged. 


Septembei' biought new advances to IL'P 
with the new phone registration. Approxi- 
mately 2,500 Il'P students were randomly 
picked to participate in a trial run of the new 
process. Renovations flourished all over the 
campus. A larger parking lot beside the HUB 
was built to accomodate commuting students 
and faculty, and additional landscaping and 
other corrective work was done. .Also, a 50-car 
parking lot was built near Whitmyre Hall. 

lUP welcomed three distinguished men to 
its campus. The Rev. Ralph Abernathy, long- 
time friend and associate of the late Dr. Mar- 
tin Luther King Jr.; William F. Buckley Jr., 
television personality, columnist and author: 
and Ben Vereen, actor, singer and dancer. 
Also, Cignetti's Indians ran over AIC with a

During October there seemed to be some 
"earthshaking" events. An aftershock follow-

and more than $108 million in damage. 

The stock market saw another Black Mon-

There was also much entertainment on 
campus and in surrounding aieas. The Out-

Susan Taylor whose topic was "Be the Best

Nationally, the good news for college 
students was that student aid would be cut 
less drastically due to a package that was 
being worked out by Congress and the 
President. A proposed bill would restrict 
Pell Grands to freshmen and sophomores 
and allow only juniors and seniors to be 
eligible for Guaranteed Student Loans. 
The reason behind this was to minimize 
student loan defaults and to help low-in- 
come students finance college. 

Supreme Court nominee Douglas Gins- 
burg admitted that he had used marijuana 
once during the '(iOs and a few times dur-

December was probably the month most 
looked forward to by the students of IL'P. It 
signified the end of the fall semester and the 
beginning of a well-deserved break. Students 
also made their Christmas lists. Some of the

February was commemorated as 
Black History Month, and included 
events such as films, workshops and 
lectures by reknown speakers. One 
guest speaker Burrell Brown, the first 
vice president of the Pennsylvania 
State Conference of NAACP. said that 
racism is no longer an excuse for blacks 
not to achieve. His advice was to "go 
over, around and if necessary, through 
the wall of lacism." UP also received a 
visit from Dr. Leonora B. Fulani, the 
first black woman to be on the presi- 
dential ballot in all 50 states. She is also 
the only black woman to have run for 
governor of New York. She spoke about 
women's issues and political issues, say- 
ing she feels that "the future of democ- 
racy lies in independant politics."

lUP's enrollment increased by more

some worried that the campus is not pre-

quate facilities. 

Also UP approved a new policy that 
requires students to maintain a 2.00 QPA

From Twister tournaments to 
plays and musicals, from all- 
niglit film festivals to concerts and lec- 
tures, there is always something hap- 
pening at lUP to keep us moving. Every 
weekend and throughout the week, stu- 
dents can choose from movies on cam- 
pus or in the local theaters. Besides its 


offering of recent and classic movies, 
the Activities Board consistently of- 
fered new and innovative ways to keep 
us entertained, such as two all-night 
film festivals. Twister and Pictionary 
Tournaments, a full-scale beach party, 
and a substantial number of comedians 
and bands. If these events weren't 
^^^^^^^__ enough to keep one 
in motion, cultural 
events could always 
be found. Lectures, 
operas, plays, musi- 
cals and art shows 
abounded during the

Opera Depicts Labors Of Love 

A trying test of love was the 
basis for Mozart's comic opera 
"Cosi Fan Tutte," performed by 
the lUP Music Theatre for two 
dates in November. 

Translated as "Women are 
Like That," the opera provided a 
charming and contemporary view 
of the trials of romance, although 
the opera was written in the 

With the help of Don Alfonso, 
an old bachelor played by Tracy 
P. Muchesko, and Despina, a 
chambermaid portrayed by Dana 
Scott, two men decide to find out 
exactly how much trust they can 
place in their fiancees. 

The fiance'es, sisters Fiordiligi 
and Dorabella, (Kimberly Dick 
and Diane Steiner,) became dis- 
traught when their betrothed 
(Erik Santos and Craig Cramer), 
act as if they'd been called to 
war. Alfonso then introduces the 
women to two "Albanians," who 
are of course the men in disguise. 

Although reluctant and stead- 
fast in their affections at fii'st, 
with the help of Despina, the sis- 
ters heed her advice and "Do 
unto them as they do unto you," 
and try to forget about their men. 

After a faked suicide attempt 
by the Albanians (who have now- 

switched women), the sisters 
take pity on them and succumb to 
their affections. The men lose 
their bet with Alfonso, while 
mourning that theii' loves were 

As in most comedies, all even- 
tually turns for the best, the la- 
dies are told of the devious plot of 
disguises, and all are reconciled 
and happy. 

Although the opera itself was 
lengthy, the fast-paced action, 
lively libretto and eneigetic per- 
formances made this a smooth, 
enjoyable production. 

Steiner and Dick as the sisters 
were perfect characterizations of 
the forlorn lovers, and theii' inner 
turmoil is easily identified with 
by the audience. Likewise, Santos 
and Cramer are consistently con- 
vincing and spontaneously hilari- 
ous as they melodramatically 
fake their suicides, and concede 
to their lovers' infidelity. 

Not to be outdone by the main 
characters, Scott and Muchesko 
provided independently strong 
performances, and the scenes in- 
cluding them were some of the 
best of the performance. 

The show was directed by Dr. 
Sarah Mantel of the Music De- 
partment, who was able to bring 

out both the diamatic and vocal 
intensities and virtuosity needed 
to perform Mozart's demanding 
score. The show was polished and 
professional, and outstanding 
performances by all cast mem- 
beis were a high point which re- 
mained throughout the duration 
of the show. 
Cosi Fan Tutte was commis- 

sioned in Vienna in 1789, and Mo- 
zarts difficult and intense music 
is complemented perfectly by 
Lorenzo da Ponte's sharp libretto. 
The show's theme is one that re- 
mains within society today, and it 
is because of this that the opera 
was enjoyable and quite realistic.

• Comedy Of Disguises In 'Twelfth Night' 

Slapstick humor, talented 
young actors, and the writing of 
William Shakespeare all contrib- 
uted to the success of the The- 
ater-By-The-Grove production of 
"Twelfth Night." The show ran in 
Waller Hall from November 12- 

With 17 students in the cast 
and dozens more working on the 
artistic and production aspects of 
the show, "Twelfth Night" pro- 
vided an opportunity for both ma- 
jors and non-majors to become in- 
volved in the theater department. 
Auditions were open to all IIP 

"Twelfth Night," one of Shake- 
speare's most popular comedies, 
is the story of Viola, a young 
woman w ho takes a job as a page 
to Duke Orsino, played by Matt 
Vendetti, after being shipw- 
recked off the coast of Illyria. In 
order to obtain this position, \'io- 
la, played by Cathy Plourde, had 

to disguise herself as a man . She 
called herself Cesario and gained 
the Duke's good graces and be- 
came his messenger. 

While in the Duke's service, Vi- 
ola finds herself torn between 
her growing love for the Duke 
and her duties as messenger to 
his beloved Countess Olivia, 
played by Amy George. Mean- 
while, the Countess finds herself 
becoming increasingly attracted 
to "Cesario." In the end, Viola 
reveals herself and is paired with 
the Duke, while Countess Olivia 
falls for Viola's long lost brother, 
Sebastian, who has been pre- 
sumed dead after the shipwreck. 

As a diverting subplot, the hi- 
jinks of Malvolio, (Dave Kinkead) 
the Countess's steward; Maria 
(Ann Labar) her attendant: Fabi- 
an, (Audra Dibert) her page: Tes- 
te (Greg Rapp) the resident 
clown: Sir Toby Belch, (Kevin 
Strausser) a relative of the 

Countess; and Sir Andrew Ague- 
cheek, Toby's companion, played 
by Mike Marra, kept the audience 
entertained throughout the play, 
Malvolio's incessant put-downs 
and insults provoke the others to 
seek their good-natured revenge, 
and things get progressively com- 
plicated by the end of the show. 
Audiences particularly enjoyed 
this frantic aspect of the play, 
and responded well to the perfor- 
mances. "Twelfth Night " was di- 
rected by Barbara Blackledge, 
who has been working with with 
Theater-By-The-Grove produc- 
tions for many years. Blackledge 
described the play as "full of top- 
sy-turvy inversions," and ex- 
plained that its title comes from a 
centuries-old custom wherein 
novice monks would change 
places with the abbot for one day 
a year on the "twelfth night" af- 
ter Christmas. This concept was 
well-demonstrated in "Twelfth

West Side Story 

A Music and Tlieater Production 

West Side Story, presented by 
the music and theater depart- 
ments in late February, tells of 
the trials of two teenage lovers 
on New York's west side in the 
late '60s. 

Tony, played by Andy Talaro- 
vich. is a Polish-.American and a 
member of the Jets, a white 
street gang. His best friend Riff, 
played by Greg Rapp. is the 
gang's leader. 

.Maria (Robin Biega) is Puerto 
Rican, and her brother Bernardo 
is the leader of the Sharks, a 
Puerto Rican gang. .Maria is sup- 
posed to marry one of the Sharks, 
but falls in love with Tony. 

The two gangs, constant ene- 
mies, have their biggest rumbles 
over Tony and Maria, and Riff 
and Bernardo are both killed. Ma- 
ria forgives Tony for her broth- 
er's death, and it seems as though 
they may work things out and be

Tony and Maria alone. Below: Tony

The production was directed 
by Malcolm Bowes, chairman of 
the theater department. The ren- 
ovation of Waller and the prob- 
lems it created didn't get in the 
way of any of the talented people 
who brought the musical to life 
at I UP.

Music fans of the Indiana com-

album "Play Deep" and their 
newest release, "Bangin'," includ- 
ing sings "Since You've Been 
Gone," "All the Love in the 
World," and "I Don't Want to 
Lose your Love." 

March brought the Top 40 
Rock sound of Squeeze to Fisher, 
and another full house. The 
band's faithful followers as well 
as newer fans were treated to old 
standards such as "Tempted," 
and "Black Coffee in Bed." The 
concert was also a showcase for 
the band's new album "Babylon 
and On," featuring songs like 
"Hourglass" and "Tough Love."

Vonnegut Brings Wit To Fisher 

Increased technology will 
thiow everybody out of a job, ac- 
cording to Kurt Vonnegut, who 
spoke at Fishei' Auditorium in 

Vonnegut, authoi' of novels 
such as Slaughterhouse Five and 
Cat's Cradle, attacked television 
and computers. 

"Nobody will have a job any- 
more. How exciting for every- 
body," Vonnegut said. "The ro- 
bots are going to take all of you 
away from being alive." 

"The most important thing you 
can do with your lives right now 
is to wake up from the dream of 
television," he said. 

Vonnegut also spoke out 
against news anchors and the 
government, and called televison 
anchors "actors living off hand- 
outs from the government." 

"it's important for you to real- 
ize what is really going on and 
what is impoitant to you." 

Finally, the critically ac- 
claimed author denounced Rea- 
gan's Star Wars plans, calling it 
an "enoimous swindle" and a 
"dopey dream." 

After a brief question and an- 
swer period, Vonnegut met with 
members of the capacity crowd at 
a reception.

Fair Showcases Clubs 

"The Activities Fair is a stu- 
dent development opportunity 
whereby lUP students can come 
and see many of the more active 
student organizations at lUP," 
according to Sherrill Kuckuck, di- 
rector of student development 

The Activities Fair, always 
held on the Thursday after 
Homecoming, is a way to show- 
case some of the things available 
to students. 

"The students can come 
through, be struck with the vari- 
ety and have the opportunity to 
really talk to someone who it is 
meaningful to," Kuckuck said. 

She said the fair isn't a money- 
maker or just a membership 

Students browse and check out what's out 
there to get involved in at lUP, 

drive; it is a chance to clear up 
the myth or steroetype you had 
about the group and give them 
exposure to the students. "It's an 
opportunity to get to know the 
organizations with funny names, 
to experience a profession, to 
know faculty members, and to 
add involvement to your resume." 

This year, Kuckuck said they 
used a more novel form of adver- 
tisement. "In addition to the post- 
ers, Penn ads and printed bal- 
loons, a brightly colored clown 
passed out candy with informa- 
tion tags attached to them in the 
Oak Grove." 

Upon entering the the Multi- 
purpose room in the HUB, one 
could easily see the time and ef- 

fort that went into the project. 
The fair hosted such activities as 
a student riding a ten-speed bike, 
WIUP broadcasting music, the Bi- 
ology Club's reptile demonstra- 
tion, a computer photography 
demonstration, numerous frater- 
nities and sororities, and an end- 
less variety of baked goods. 

Kuckuck added that there is no 
fee to set up a table, and depend- 
ing on your needs, your group 
could have one or two tables. She 
said that the groups with food or 
messy projects were able to set 
up near the kitchen.

lUP Band: Making History 

As we look back on the 1987 
edition of the lUP maiching 
band, a new chapter in both lUP 
and national history can be 

This year the marching band 
had the opportunity to make the 
kind of mark that your children 
will someday read about, as the 
200 member music and auxiliary 
unit proudly performed at Phila- 
delphia's "We The People, 200" 
celebration, September 17-20, 
1987, which marked the 200th an- 
niversary of the signing of the 

During the celebration, the 
band marched in a nationally- 
televised parade before an audi- 
ence of more than 300,000 people 
in downtown Philadelphia, one of 
which included President Ronald 
Reagan, and served as the official 
band for a special session of the 
Pennsylvania General Assembly 
where it was applauded by such 
prominent public figures such as 
Governor Robert Casey and re- 
tired U.S. Supreme Court Justice 
Warren Buiger. 

"I'm very proud and honored 
that the I UP band was able to 
participate in this historic cele- 
bration; after all, there won't be 
another one like it for another 
100 years," Dr. Charles E. Casa- 
vant, director of the band, said. 

Some of the other highlights of 
the 1987 tour which also put the 
lUP band in the spotlight include: 
a special indoor concert at North 
Penn High School in Landsdale, 
Pa., a noontime performance at 
Baltimore's Inner Harbor, the 
lUP-Towson St. football game in 
Towson, Md., the Eagles vs. New 
Orleans Saints professional foot- 
ball game in Veteran's stadium, 
Philadelphia, and an exhibition 
at a large high schol competition 
at Whitehall High School in 

In addition to making national 
history, the lUP band has added 
new pages to its own proud histo- 
ry, which covers more than half a 

Since it was first organized by 
Mr. D.O. Slyker as a 60-piece non- 

marching ensemble at the Indi- 
ana Normal School in 1921, the 
band has steadily grown in size 
and spirit to reach the level of 
excellence audiences enjoy today. 

During the 1960s, Dr. Daniel 
DiCicco became director of the 
band, which performed at such 
major events as the Boardwalk 
Bowl in 1968 when lUP played 
the University of Delaware, and 
at a Colts-Packers professional 
football game in Baltimore. His 
band was billed a "marching 
band with a show sound," playing 
tunes from "West Side Story," 
"The Sound of Music," and TV 
themes and marches which were 
arranged by Charles Davis. 

DiCicco commented that his fa- 
voi'ite show didn't involve the use 
of instruments at all; it was done 
with barbershop-style singing, 
which proves the versatility of 
the band. 

In 1976 Dr. Charles Casavant

Although we may not always re- 
member it, academics are the 
primary reason we're here at lUP. Stu- 
dents at lUP have over 50 majors from 
which to choose, and have opportuni- 
ties to enhance their formal studying 
through internships, cooperative educa- 


tion programs, and exchange programs 
with schools around the world and 
throughout the United States. Many of 
our experiences and activities can also 
benefit us academically. Many students 
receive practical experience through 
jobs on campus and on-campus intern- 
ships, while other students benefit 
from work-study positions. One of 

the most interest- 

'———~'~~~~ jj^g aspects of aca- 

demics at lUP is 
the student and 
professor ex- 
change programs. 
Each year lUP 
hosts professors 
from universities 
in countries such 
as Nigeria, India 
^^^^^^^^ and China. Like- 
wise, lUP served 
as host for 424 students from 64 coun- 
tries such at Thailand, India, China and 
Malasia. Adult and handicapped stu- 
dents also play an important role in 
academics, and the numbers of these 
students continue to grow each year. Of 
course, academics are not all smiling 
statistics. Students are endlessly con- 
fronted with the problems of schedul- 
ing, drop/add, and finding a quiet place 
to study. These same problems confront 
students at lUP's two branch campuses 
in Kittaning and Punxsutawney, who 
after a year come to the main campus 
in Indiana to further their academic

The lUP 

Council Of Trustees 

k he Council of Trustees is a 

^^ group made up of eleven 
H" members, two of which are 
^ alumni and one being a 

They do many things on campus. The 
recommendation and retention of lUP's 
president is approved through the coun- 
cil. They also establish the university 
broad policies and approve them, as 
well as approve academic degrees, poli- 
cies in student conduct, use of institu- 
tional facilities, programs and academ- 
ics, and organizational units. 

The Council of Trustees approves 
lUP's budget request and the annual 
budget. All fees except the student ac- 
tivity fee and tutition are established 
through the council. 

Ten members of the council are ap- 
pointed by the governor and approved 
by state senate. A committee on campus 
recommends three to five names to the 
chancellors office. The prospective 
members are then interviewed, and a 
recommendation is sent to the gover- 
nor. If the senate approves, the student 
becomes a member of the council. 

The responsibilities of the council 
have changed over the years, said IIP 
president Dr. John Welty. In 1875, when 
the Indiana Stae Normal School opened, 
it was a private, non-profit organiza- 

tion. Then in 1927, the school became 
Indiana State Teacher's College. 

There have been modifications to fit 
the needs of each stage of the universi- 
ty. The last major modification, said 
Welty, was when the State System of 
Higher Education was established. 

The council has been involved in 
many major activities at IL'P. The ap- 
proval and development of the cogener- 
ation plant was largely done by the 
council, as was the Capital Campaign, 
which was designed to raise money for 
the foundation for lUP. .Also, the people 
chosen for honorary doctorates are ap- 
proved by the council and recruited lat- 
er from help with lUP's various other 

In the future, the Trustees will be 
performing their usual duties, along 
with working with Welty in the plans 
for the university. 

"We've been fortunate to have a 
strong group of trustees," said Welty, 
"to support the university in progress 
made over the last few years."

Adults Hit The Books 

I Iberta Omundson gets up at 

HB 6:15 every morning. She 

B^ showers, eais and is out the 

I door on her way to college by 

' 7:30. Her day consists of 

classes and her work-study job in lUP's 
Publications office until 4:30 p.m. She 
returns home to fi.x something to ear. 
rest a little bit and study. 

Alberta Omundson is a 46-year 
grandmother and one of the many 
adults who has made the decision to 
return to school. 

■'I'm doing it just for fun," Omundson 
said. "It seems that people my age have 
quit trying to learn new things in life. 
Not me. I want this stimulation and 
challenge of learning. It makes me feel 
good about myself." 

Omundson started taking classes and 
working part-time at Publications in 
January, she majors in English and is 
married with three grown children and 
one 0-year-old grandchild. 

■"My son, Jeff, who is 14 and still 
living at home, thinks it's really neat 
that I'm going to school," she said. "My 
other son and daughter, who no longer 
live at home, have mixed feelings." 

Omundson said she receives the most 
support from her husband. Ken. 

"At the beginning he was against it." 
she said. "But he understands that it's 
very important to me. and he supports 
me now. He and Jeff pitch in to help me 
with the housework now. I still cook, 
but they do the cleaning up afterwards. 

"I've had to rearrange my life a little 
better so that everything gets done, but 
it's nothing that I regret. In fact. I'm 
thriving on it," 

Omundson said she doesn't feel out 
of place in her classes. 

"I feel the younger students are my 
peers," she said. "They have the same 
problems I do in getting classwork done. 

"I don't think the younger students 
feel funny with me being in school, but 
what I do get is people my own age w ho 

want to know why I'd be crazy enough 
to come back to school. What can I say'? 
I enjoy it. Even after I earn my degree, 
I'll probably keep taking classes. The 
degree is not as important as learning. 

"I'm not quitting life yet, and I rec- 
ommend that other adults don't either. 
If you're an adult considering returning 
to school, do it." 

Those two words, "do it," are the 
exact words that stuck in Christine 
Johnston's head when she was consid- 
ering going to college. A 25-year-old. 
married secretary who works full time 
at lUP's Counseling Service. Johnston 
said she was nervous about returning. 

"It was something I just had to get 
over," she said. "I wanted to do if, so I 
just took a deep breath and started 
calling for information to get started." 

Johnston said the biggest adjustment 
she had to make was getting used to 
having younger people around her all 
the time in her classes. 

"I know I'm not really that much 
older." she said. "It's just something 
that I'm aware of and need to get over, 
I used to feel insecure and uneasy be- 
cause of my age, but now I feel I've 
learned to gear myself down and just 
enjoy the class." 

Johnston said she expected school to 
be harder and more academic than 
what she found it to be. 

"I thought for sure I'd find myself 
stuck in a class that I would feel totally 
lost in." she said. "Instead I find myself 
so absorbed in it that sometimes I feel I 
need to restrain myself from asking so 
many questions. 

"I think that returning to school is 
food for a person's self-esteem. It 
makes you feel good about yourself. All 
you can think of after you finish a class 
is. 'Wow, I did it.'"

The eternal paradox . 

Internships Provide Experience 

t's the eternal paradox of 

I the college student. 
We're denied job after job 
because of lack of experi- 
ence, yet how can we get the 
experience without ever having a job? 

This question can be answered in the 
form of internships. 

More then 50 different programs are 
available at IIT for students in all 100 
major subjects in more than 40 depart- 
ments. Each semester and throughout 
the summer, hundreds of students, usu- 
ally upperclassmen, temporarily em- 
bark on life in the "real world." 

Although only 35 per cent of intern- 
ships are paid, most students happily 
take a position for the credits earned 
and for that all-important job pre-req- 
uisite: experience. 

"You read the book, but it's a lot 
different seeing it in person," said 
Christopher Lee, a senior political sci- 
ence major who interned in Pittsburgh 
with republican State Senator Mike 

Lee spent his spring internship reser- 
aching for a project involving the Janu- 

ary 2 oil spill on Pittsburgh's Mononga- 
hela River. He also traveled to 
Harrisburg weekly, spending three days 
with Fisher at the capital and learning 
how our state government operates. 
Like many student interns, Lee expects 
his internship to lead to a summer job 
working on Fisher's re-election 

Robert Lepley, an intern with the 
Cleveland Force Indoor Soccer team in 
Ohio, also spoke of the value of the 

"1 learned a lot of practical stuff that 
I never learned in college," Lepley, a 
senior marketing major, said. 

Althoug he mis.sed the college life 
and had to get used to getting up each 
day for work, he said, "You're actually 
doing stuff instead of just reading 
about it." 

Lepley spent his senior spring as a 
marketing intern for the Force, and 
worked in various departments includ- 
ing public relations, community rela- 
tions, sales, and accounting, as well as 
doing what he calls "gopher work." 

"I'm the lowest on the totem pole," 

he said, but added that he has learned 
what it takes to run a professional 
sports franchise. Although Lepley 
doesn't get paid, he said this internship 
will directly relate to his future job in 
the group sales for sports marketing. 

Likewise, the practicality of the 
work done during an internship has 
aided senior journalism major Susan 
Reno in looking for a permanent job. 
Reno worked in the public relations de- 
partment at Harmarville Rehabilitation 
Center in Pittsburgh during the sum- 
mer of her junior year. 

Through this internship, she was 
able to expand on the skills she learned 
while at IIP. She worked with the pub- 
lications editor of the center, wrote 
news releases, contributed to an em- 
ployee newsletter, and designed, wrote 
and edited a brochure, among other 

"I think I got more out of that three 
months than I got out of three years of 
classes," Reno said.

Calling The Shots

Mf ' patients, cancer victims and 

r* AIDS victims? 

* What kind of student 

would actually want to work directly 
with any of these people? IL'P students 
do this twice a week during the clinical 
care portion of theii' student nursing 

Student nurses learn about home 
health care, nuising home patient caie, 
pediatrics, obstetrics, medical and sur- 
gical duties and managerial duties at 
various area health-care facilities. 

Barb Stelma, a senior nursing major, 
talked about her typical day dui'ing 

"We have to get up early to get ready 
and travel however far away we aie 
assigned, providing our own 

"Once we get to the site, we read the 
duty nurse's reports, then begin our 
own assessment of the patient. After 
the assessment, we are responsible for 
dispensing the patient's prescribed 
medication and then begin morning 
care, which included bathing and 

"Our days are not really typical," 
Stelma said. ".Any number of things 
could happen during a day, from help- 
ing patients' relatives to sitting with 
confused patients." 

lUP nursing majors spend eight 
hours a day, two days a week in health 
care facilities. They spend about nine 
hours a week in class and are expected 
to practice in learning labs during the 

"In oui' second semestei' sophomeie 
year we begin practicing on manne- 
quins, giving shots and doing intraven- 
eous work," Stelma said. "We also are 
expected to use the computer lab and 
programs about disease symptoms and 

"We also have a big-buddy program 
where an upperclassman helps the 
newly capped sophomore nursing 

From mock patient care, nursing ma- 
jors move into the nursing homes, psy- 
chiatric wards and hospitals, being con- 
fronted with despondent patients, 
violent patients and AIDS victims. 

"We are assigned one patient and we 
try to communicate with them. It takes 
a while, but you do get them to trust 
you. Soon after the patient begins look- 
ing for you on the days you come with 
their hair combed." 

But clinical care isn't always easy. 
Student nui'ses have to face violent pa- 
tients and AIDS victims. 

"One of my friends who worked at 
Torrence was checking on patients in a 
security ward when she was slammed 
against the wall," Stelma said. "We do 
have to watch, but we realize this could 
happen to anyone. 

"I have had to work with AIDS vic- 
tims, but it is not as scary. My patients 
are so weak from the diseases AIDS 
opens the body to that they can't hurt 

"I haven't had problems with my pa- 
tients, but others have," Stelma said. 
"Some are hateful and don't care about 
the safety of their caretakers. You have 
to watch these patients." 

The nursing program is an expensive 
learning experience. 

"We spent about $250 the first three 
semesters on books. After that we spent 
about $100 for books each semester of 
the junior and senior years," Stelma 
said. "We also have to buy an assess- 
ment kit including our stethescopes for 
$60. But then we have to buy our uni- 
forms and pay for standardized tests to 
piepaie for the state boai'ds." 

The nursing program is not all work 
and no play, however. There is a na- 
tional nursing fraternity on campus, a 
state student nursing club and nursing 
students hold a wine and cheese party 
to celebrate the end of the year.

Student Teaching: 

A hazing into the profession . . . 

■2 * tudent teachers are a 

IP* gateway in which college 

f students and faculty can re- 
live their elementaiy and 
secondary school dass. By 
listening to these young future teach- 
ers, one can sense a kind of reminisc- 
ing. But there is also a strong sense of 

Student teaching is a different expe- 
rience for everyone. Dave Godissart, a 
communications education senior, 
called it "a hazing into the profession." 
Godissart chose teaching because of a 
responsibility to educate people. 

"The American public is not trained 
to the high degree of liteiacy it should 
be," Godissait said. He mentioned his 
interest in theater as a reason for 
choosing communications education. 

Godissart claimed student teaching 
takes up 24 hours of his day. 

"I get about five hours of sleep a 
night," he said. 

"They're (the students) a riot," he 
said, "but it's still hard wwk." 

Godissart said teaching is a large 
amount of responsibility and that edu- 
cation majors don't lealize how much 
until they actually teach. He said the 
training is good, although it's "stilted" 
because it's not the real world. Student 
teachers still have a cooperative teach- 
er who acts almost like a professor, and 
Godissart says student teachers are one 
notch under ihtni. 

Godissart di-sn't think there is 
much differen ' between kids today 
and when he was in school. .\nd al- 

though he thought being behind the the 
desk would be a nice experience, he 
finds he still has work to do, such as 

Jackie Quadei', an eaiiy childhood 
education major, enjoys the fact that 
she gets children "fresh" — right from 
the beginning. She watches their' pro- 
gress as they grow from nothing intd 
something she has a hand in creating. 

Children today know more at a youn- 
ger age because they are forced to grow- 
up faster-, Quader- said. 

"They're not as naive." 

"I want to be a teacher because in 
our profession, we need better teach- 
ers," Quader remarked. "I can better 
the education of younger- childer-en by 
giving the fullest potential to my 

She described student teaching as 
"cramming for a test every single 
night." .All she does, she said, is sleep, 
eat, and drink. However, it pays off 
because Quader feels older-, more ma- 
ture, and r-esponsible, becauese she is in 
charge of the students' education. 

Sometimes it can be a bit scary when 
she feels she's "cheating" them. Quader 
said she feels like she's cheating her 
students when she doesn't do her best. 

Student teaching to Quader- is prepa- 
ration for the real thing. 

"The students can be a pain and test 
your patience." she said, "but usually 
they'r-e curious and fun." 

Julie Dittrich, who taught secondar-y 
biology education, says her students 
were great. 

"Generally they're all real nice and 
are always talking to you about current 
social issues," she said. "They always 
know- all the new music." 

Julie liked teaching at the high 
school level because of the challenge it 
presented. She said high .school stu- 
dents are more on top of things, and 
their- curiosity makes them question 
more ideas. 

For Dittrich, education is one of the 
biggest concerns in .-Xmerica because 
"young people are our furture." 

She considers student teaching an 
internship for teachers. She said you 
are treated like staff; "a full-fledged 

"It's a great learning experience," 
Dittrich said. 

Diane .Miller is an elementary educa- 
tion major who feels teaching is a very 
rewarding pr-ofession. 

"It takes special people to do it," she 

".Always remember what it's like to 
be sitting in the classroom." Miller said, 
and added that keeping in touch is 

Student teachers at UP, whether 
they realize it or not. are keeping in 
touch with more than just their stu- 
dents. They are in touch with two dif- 
fer-ent worlds: college and a secondary 
or elementary school. Because of them, 
we can have better knowledge of what 
our future holds.

Scheduling made simple 

Students Call For Classes 

IP experimented this year 
with registration by tele- 
phone in an effort to make 
scheduling easier. 

Fred Sehring, lUP's assis- 
tant registrar, said that telephone reg- 
istration will enable touchtone phones 
to replace computer terminals that are 
presently used for scheduling. 

Students enter their social security 
and personal indentification number at 
their scheduled time. According to 
Sehring, there will also be a make-up 
time for students who can't get through 
or miss their time. 

"It will eliminate the student having 
to go to the site and stand in lines," 
Sehring said. 

Another advantage is the opportuni- 
ty to drop or add classes any number of 
times within a 24-hour period of the 
scheduled appointment time. 

During the fall semester, 548 stu- 
dents registered by phone for the 
spring semester. The phone system was 

overloaded the first day, but registrar 
Donald Seagren and many students con- 
sidered the trial run a success. 

The remaining 452 students that took 
part in the trial run either chose to go 
through the standard registration pro- 
cess in the Blue Hoom of Sutton Hall or 
could not get through the tied-up phone 

The registrar's office polled the par- 
ticipants and got 00 per cent response. 

"The results were fair," Sehring said. 
The average rating was 4.15 out of 5 
points for student .satisfaction, he said. 

in April, approximately 2,400 stu- 
dents considered the trial run a success 
tried to register by phone. Tentatively 
the system will be used campus-wide in 
the fall for Spring 1990 or Spring 1990 
for fall.

ferent world. IIP, with the most active 
foreign student program in the state of 
Pennsylvania, strives to accommodate 
the needs of its over 400 international 
students. They come from Sweden,

list goes on and on. Some are interested 
in finishing their education at lUP and 
some simply use their opportunity to 
learn more about America. 

Cheung King Wang is from the Brit- 
ish colony of Hong Kong. Like many 
international students, there was an 
initial problem with the language barri- 
er. It took Cheung a long time to make 
friends. He feels that Hong Kong is 
much more conservative, and had a 
hard time relating to the more relaxed 
attitude of young Americans. 

"I feel free here . . .," Cheung says 
referring to his new-found indepen- 
dence. Cheung plans to finish his edu- 
cation at lUP. 

Fabrice Picon is from the city of 
Nancy in France. Here he is working on 
his masters degree in communications. 

Fabrice feels that the United States 
is much more conservative than his 
home in France and remarks that Indi- 
ana, especially, is that way. Working at 
the radio station, WIl'P, Fabrice ex- 

pected to meet mostly Americans as 

Although he enjoys the open-minded 
attitudes of his co-workers, he adds, ". . 
. because of the programs here, most of 
my friends are international students, 
like me." 

These programs are organized by the 
International Students Club. He makes 
the further observation that "there is a 
strong identity among the international 
students, especially the Europeans and 

Leaving in May, after finishing his 
masters, he will return to the L'niversi-

gland. Vincent has make many acute 
observations of Americans since his ar- 

"It seems," he says, "that Americans 
are intrigued by the international stu- 
dents, unfortunately not really enough 
to get to know them well." Vincent is a 
marketing major who says he didn't 
have a hard time making friends. ^le

They're not afraid to tell you exactly 
how thev feel, 1 like that."

ith both a television and 
■■■ radio station available, 
Mf students at lUP can bet- 
r ter prepare themselves to 

enter a fast-growing field. 
A 13-hour telethon produced by 
WIUP-TV benefitting the Salvation 
Army was the most rewarding project 
undertaken during Fall 1987, accord- 
ing to the station's program director, 
Meg Shuey. 

"It was a big, big success," Shuey 

The telethon, under the direction of 
assistant program director and special 
projects director Bruce Huffman, 

raised more than $1,000 in private 

"It was a lot of work, but it was fun 
to do. A lot of us didn't know what to 
expect until it happened. In the end it 
worked out well and I'm happy we did 
it," Huffman said. 

"We do a lot of locally originated 
programming; we produce nine shows 
in all," Shuey said. "We're a complete- 
ly student-run station. I think that's 
important because we have a lot of 
say in what we do," she added. 

There are more than 100 volunteer 
members at the station. "They are 
needed just to make the station 
work," Shuey said. 

WIUP-TV produces two talk shows, 
news and sports shows, a music show 
and a cooking show and is an affiliate 
of National College Television (NCTV) 
which provides more programming for 
the station. 

The station's manager is Jim Ka- 
pustik. Their faculty advisor is Dr. 
Jay Start. 

WIUP-FM, on the other hand, orga- 
nized a news staff that is competitive 
with area commercial stations, Mike 
Streissguth, the station manager, said. 
The growth and stabilization of 
WIUP-FM's "FM 90 News" program, 
which began in January 1987, has be- 

come a great success, according to 
Streissguth. "We're the only half-hour 
news show in the area," he added. 

"The news team is certainly grow- 
ing and we plan to cover much more 
local news," news director Dan Won- 
ders said. 

WIUP-FM is licensed by the Feder- 
al Communication Commission and is 
a fully operational public service ra- 
dio station serving Indiana County. It 
is also a volunteer student-operated 
station with the exception of general 
manager and advisor, Gail Wilson, 
and its chief engineer. 

"I would like WIUP-FM to be 
known as the only station of its kind 
in the area, offering Indiana County 
classical music, jazz, bluegrass music 
and classical rock music commercial- 
free," Streissguth said. "We also have 
the area's only New Age music show 
and carry the Metropolitan Opera and 
Philadelphia Orchestra," he added.

lUP's Branch Campuses . . .

Living On The Edge 

I I'P's branch campuses pro- 

r vide students with an alter- 

H native to the fast-paced cam- 
f^ pus life in Indiana. Branch 
' campuses are smaller and 

more individualized. Althouj^h they are 
beneficial in many ways, there are dis- 
advantages also. 

Lisa Perfetto, a sociology major from 
Erie, attends the Kittanning campus. 
She feels main campus could help the 
blanches. Thei'e is no bookstore and the 
library is not open on Sundays. 

Students at the branch campuses pay 
activity fees, but have nothing to show 
for it, says journalism major Kristy 
Pierce of Homei- City. They also have 
security problems at Kittanning, since 
some residence hall doors can be un- 
locked with an 1-card. 

There is also a lack of representation 
in the I'enn, she .said. The student 
union at Kittanning is no bigger than a 
house. It contains two pool and ping- 
pong tables, a small color TV, vending 
machines and foui' tables to eat on. It is 
not much bigger than a main campus 
residence hall lounge. 

Dann McDermott, an Altoona fresh- 
man majoring in math, stresses the 
need foi' a bookstore at the branch cam- 
puses. He .says it gets to be a hassle to 
go back and forth to main campus to 
get books. And if a class is dropped, the 
student must go back to main to sell the 
book back and get a new one. 

Visitation hours are strict at Kittan- 
ning, says McDermott. No one may visit 

the other residence hall until noon, and 
they must leave by midnight on the 
weekdays and 2 a.m. on the weekends. 

Mike Tomera, an accounting major 
from Johnstown, .said at Punxsutawney 
they could add a better- library and cou- 
ple of residence halls. 

"It's like going to high school," says 
Nick Duranko, a Punxsy graduate ma- 
joring in psychology. There are nr) mov- 
ie theaters and two shopping centers. 
The biggest thing to happen, he said, is 
the opening of a new r'estaur-ant. 

Although there are many problems 
with branch campuses, a lot of people 
had good things to say about them. 

Pierce says, "I'm really glad 1 came 
here." She knows people and they are 
like a close-knit family. 

McDermott says, "It gets you into the 
college scene slowly." He studies more 
since there is less to do. 

And, of course, there is always "the 
Dungeon" for hard-core studiers. "The 
Dungeon" is a very quiet place to study 
in the bottom of the academic building 
at Tomera said he spends a lot 
of time there because the library closes 

In spite of some of the problems at 
the branches, its advantages seem to 
outweigh its disadvantages, according 
to the students. The branch campuses 
benefit those who need the academic 
atmosphere of college life

Common military skills, such as defensive fighting positions, are taught during 

ROTC lab 


kk ention the phrase ROTC to most 
£■ lUP students and many of them 
W^ will conjure images of individ- 
P^ uals in camouflaged uniforms 
with short hair marching 
around campus. Yet these images repre- 
sent the surface of one of the most exten- 
sive academic programs offered at lUP. 

Since its introduction in 1953, ROTC has 
become increasingly popular. Now roughly 
50% of the freshmen and 10".. of all stu- 
dents on campus are involved in ROTC. If 
you want to find an officer training pro- 
gram larger than IL'P's, chances are that 
you will have to look at the United States 
military academies. 

Where does all of the enthusiasm come 
from? There are several reasons the pro- 
gram is so popular. Much of the popularity 
stems from the fact that ROTC can be 
taken in lieu of the university's physical 
education requirements. Still another rea- 
son ROTC attracts such a volume of stu- 
dents can be attributed to just curiosity. It 
is a change of pace from other classes. The 

third, and most obvious, reason students 
are attracted to ROTC is to obtain a com- 
mission in the United States .-^rmy. ROTC. 
which is short for Reserve Officers Train- 
ing Corps, makes is possible to become a 
second lieutenant. Upon successful com- 
pletion of the courses, cadets are made 
officers in either the regular .\rmy. the 
Reserves or the National Guard. 

Like any other academic program. ROTC 
has its requirements. Students attend 
class for two hours and a lab for an hour 
and a half each week. The classes study 
anything from military history to leader- 
ship techniques. During the lab, cadets are 
put into different sections called compa- 
nies. .AH of the companies at lUP, includ- 
ing the branch campuses, form the War- 
rior Battalion. The labs are staffed and 
taught by cadets acting in various leader- 
ship positions. The activities conducted at 
lab range from the very military, like the 
basics of camouflage to the purely fun, 
such as the ice skating lab. 

Labs are not the only thing designed for 

fun. ROTC offers a variety of other inter- 
esting and challenging activities. They 
range from the bi-annual rappeling to the 
military ball. If these things are of no 
interest to the student, there are also sev- 
eral social clubs sponsored through ROTC. 
Not everybody who joins ROTC during 
their freshmen year will finish their senior 
year with a commission. The military life- 
style is not for everyone. Yet just because 
the majority of the students will not finish 
the program doesn't mean they don't learn 
anything. The experiences from ROTC can 
last a lifetime. Whether it is increasing 
your self-esteem or improving your ability 
to deal with people, ROTC can help. In the 
long run ROTC can give students the win- 
ning edge to be a success in all of their 
future endeavors, civilian or military. 

-Jeff Moran and 
Carl Eakin 

Left: Although camouflage is not the only thing ROTC has to offer it is a 
basic skill needed by any officer in the United States Army. Bottom left: 
ROTC provides the opportunity to practice public speaking skills by giving 
all cadets the chance to teach. Below: Rappeling is one of the biggest events 
of the year for students in ROTC. Here a cadet is about to go down a 
rappeling lane in order to check for safety. Taught by Commandos, rappeling 
is a great way to build self-confidence.

Sports can take a variety of 
forms at lUP. The most visible 
and publicized sport this year was the 
lUP football team, and the team didn't 
let anyone down as it went on to win 
the state title for the second year in a 
row against West Chester. The team 
also went on to a play-off game in Flori-

da for a bid at the national title. Fans 

even braved the minus-twenty wind 
chill factor to watch their team win the 
title at West Chester. Unfortunately. 
fan support did not extend to some of 
the other sports such as soccer, field 
hockey, basketball and baseball even 
though the women's basketball and 

gymnastics teams 

completed highly 
successful years. Op- 
portunities to partici- 
pate in sports were 
prevalent, as intra- 
murals were avail- 
able to all. Fraterni- 
ties and sororities, 
dormitories or just 
groups of friends 
teamed up to com- 
pete against one an- 
other in year-long in- 
tramurai sports. 

These intramurals as well as varsity 
sports made the seasons move quickly, 
and before we knew it, cross-country 
became winter and spring track, and 
football was long forgotten for baseball 
and Softball. These activities provided 
entertainment for the spectators and 
e.xercise for the participants. Student 
athletes must also maintain a quality 
academic standing, and for the excep- 
tional scholar-athlete, all-star status 
can be attained.

downs to set team records in ca- 
reer touchdowns, yards and 
touchdowns in a season. 

A rematch at West Chester for 
the state title ended in a 21-9 
victory for the Indians. This win 
made lUP the only Division II 
team with 10 victories, a first for 
any Indian team. They went to

'87 Season Spells Disappointment 

The lUP soccer team entered 
the season hoping to reverse the 
past two losing seasons. They fin- 
ished the year with a 7-10-1 

The season did not open well 
for the Indians. They traveled to 
New Jersey for the Sunkist Glass- 
boro Tournament and dropped 
two games 2-1 to Longwood and 

Next the team traveled to 
Penn State Behrand. They out- 
shot PSU 3 to 1 but still lost be- 
cause of defensive errors. 

The Indians lost their first two 
home games with a 1-0 loss to 
.Allegheny and a 4-0 loss to Divi- 
sion I Robert Morris. 

lUP finally ended their losing 
streak with a 3-1 win over visit- 
ing St. Francis. L'nlike the previ- 
ous games, the Indians came out 
strong and dominated play. Soph- 
omore Cliff Wicks opened the 
scoring with a nice feed from ju- 

nior Demetrios Demetriades. In 
the second half the team came 
out flat and gave up a tying goal. 
However, they regained their 
composure and control of the 
game. Hammond scored the win- 
ning goal on a penalty kick and 
another for insurance on a solo 

The team won its second in a 
row at St. \'incent. Scoring for 
the Indians were Jack Pacalo, 
Hammond and Demetriades. 

"We played a really good game. 
Everything seemed to click. The 
whole team had an outstanding 
game," said senior defender Scott 

Ne.xt the team came out of a 
hard-fought game against Gene- 
va with a 4-2 victory and their 
third straight win. The team 
started slowly but came back to 
win with goals by John Sharkey, 
Rich Whitmore, Wicks and 

The Indians' winning streak 
came to and end with a 1-0 loss to 

the West Virginia .Mountaineers. 

The team traveled to Blooms- 
burg and came away with a 3-1 
loss. They opened their PS.AC sea- 
son with a 0-0 tie with California. 

The team returned to their 
winning ways with a 3-1 victory 
over conference rival Slippery 
Rock. Whitmore, Hammond and 
Sharkey scored for lUP. 

The Indians lost the ne.xt home 
game against regional rival Gan- 
non 4-0. 

The next home game w-as im- 
portant for lUP. If they won, they 
would clinch the western title 
and earn a trip to the state game. 
Unfortunately, lUP ran into a 
red-hot Lock Haven team and 
was totally outplayed 7-0. 

The Indians improved for the 
home game against Frostburg. 
They outshot the visitors 3-1 and 
won 2-0 with goals from Deme- 
triades and sophomore John 

The team exploded offensively 
against Westminster and won 8-0. 

Scoring for I UP were Wicks, Ye- 
lich and Tim Schoener with one 
goal each, and Whitmore and 
Hammond scoiing two and three 
goals respectively. 

Next lUP went into overtime 
with the University of Pitts- 
burgh-Johnstown and won 1-0 
with a goal from Jack Pacalo. 

The last game of the season 
ended on a sour note. The Indians 
hosted Pitt and lost 4-0. 

The team will lose four start- 
ers to graduation. They are: for- 
ward Todd Hammond, midfielder 
John Sharkey, defender Scott 
Russell and goalkeeper Jeff 

Four lUP players were selected 
to play for the Western Pa. Inter- 
collegiate Soccer Conference All- 
Star team. Jack Pacalo played for 
the first team, and teammates 
Tim Schoener and Todd Ham- 
mond made the second team.

Women Capture PSAC Title 

The lUP women's basketball 
team capped its first ever PSAC 
championship, while head coach 
Jan Kiger was elected Coach of 
the Year. 

The Indians closed their sea- 
son at Pitt-Johnstown in a play- 
off appearance but lost 108-55. 
With their 17-14 season four play- 
ers hit the record books. Senior 
guard Patti Connaghan dished 
out 166 assists for the season and 
499 career assists, good enough 
for the number one spot. She 
stands fourth in season steals 
with 80 and ended with 296 in 
her career. Margo Hinton, junior 
guard, had 100 steals for the sea- 
son and junior guard Leanne San- 
tacroce had 59. Hinton tied for 
second place in field goals for the 
season at 185. claimed the second 
notch with 234 career steals, and 
moved into ninth position with 
15.1 average points. She also 
stands third in season scoring 
with 454 points and freshman 
center Sherri Leysock rebounded 
her wav into fourth position at 

With a crew of achievers like 
this it's no wonder Kiger and as- 
sistant coach Joyce Maudie are so 
enthusiastic about their team. 

"I feel fantastic about it," said 
Kiger. "We wanted to let the se- 
niors have the best season ever 
and that was a motivation." 

"It took time to pull together. 
The preseason wasn't so good and 
we lost games there in the second 
half of the season partly because 
of injuries (Hinton and Lightcap) 
but the contribution of the team 
brought it together." 

The Indians showed their play- 
ing ability by defeating Le.Moyne 
68-65 and Kutztown 69-65 but lost

bright spot in their mauling of

sustain them through the ne.xt 
three losses. Gannon overtook the 
Indians 55-74 despite excellent 
play by Jan Lightcap (24 points. 
13 rebounds). The Indians lost a 
pair of games at home to St. 
Francis. 64-76. and Bloomsburg. 
61-67. Lightcap had top showings 
for lUP in both games with 16 
points and nine rebounds against 
the Red Flash and 20 points. 12 
rebounds against the Huskies. 

Leanne Santacroc-e's 15 points 
and Leycock's 16 rebounds 
helped their team to a 65-41 win 
over Millersville. Lightcap at- 
tained top honors with 21 points 
and 10 rebounds in a 70-03 loss to 
Mount St. Mary's. Hinton scored 
22 points in a 70-93 loss to Pitt- 

The Indians played out a six- 
game string of victories against 

Edinboro and California, where 
Hinton scored 17 and 22 points 
respectively. Connaghan led the 
82-61 win over Shippensburg with 
21 points. Hinton's 24 points 
against Salem backed by Ley- 
sock's 15 rebounds left a 81-73 
defeat for the Tigerettes. Hinton 
led the assault at Clarion with 24 
points with Amy Gorda contribut- 
ing 13 rebounds. 

lUP smashed Slippery Rock 
with a 23-point effort by Leanne 
Santacroce. The Indians lost to 
Lock Haven 64-70. and again to 
Edinboro 77-87. At home the Indi- 
ans defeated California 77-70 
while Connaghan canned 18 
points. At Shippensburg. Leysock 
led the attack with 19 points, 1! 

A three-game setback with 
losses to Maryland-Baltimore 
County. Clarion and in overtime 
to Slippery Rock sent the Indians

With the winning season, the 
conference crown and coach of

Doug Macek 

It was another exciting season 
for the lUP field hocl<ey team, 
Led by coach Kofie Montgomery, 
it proved once again that it is not 
a team to be tai<en lightly. 

The season was played mostly 
on the road. The season opener at 
St. Bonaventure resulted in a 2-1 
lUP victory. Anxious to play 
Kutztown with a win under its 
belt, the team had a quiet bus 
ride home, for they lost 4-0. 

The following game at Frost- 
burg was also a loss, but the team 
sprang back to beat Chatham Col- 
lege with a 7-0 win. A tourna- 
ment in Salisbury, Md., left lUP 
with a 3-4 record. First was the 
close loss to Oneonta of New York 
with a score of 1-2. The second 

game was with Wesley College, 
with lUP beating Wesley 3-1. De- 
fending national champion Salis- 
bury was next, and after a close 
game the home team stole a 1-0 

At last it was time for lUP to 
play at home. The team hosted 
Mansfield in the rain, and in dou- 
ble overtime junior Kim Simon 
scored the only goal in the game 
for lUP. Bloomsburg, who won 
the national title, beat lUP 1-4. 

Next the girls hosted Millers- 
ville and lost 1-0. The three fol- 
lowing games against St. Bona- 
venture, Carnegie Mellon and 
Bethany College were all lUP vic- 
tories and the Lady Warriors 
were making a strong comeback 

in their division. After crushing 
Washington & Jefferson 7-0, lUP 
was stopped by Shippensburg in a 
tight 1-0 loss. 

The rest of the season was 
spent on the road. They lost to 
Wittenburg of Ohio 1-0 in double 
overtime, then to Slippery Rock 2- 
0. Cortland was another loss at 3- 
and it brought the team to East 
Stroudsburg, where the season 
closed with a 0-0 tie in double 

lUP is a Division II team, the 
toughest division in the United 
States. Every one of the losses 
except one were to teams that 
were ranked in the top 20 

Kim Simon was asked to play 

in the All-Conference team, and 
Donna Walker was an All-Confer- 
ence Honorable Mention. Kim Si- 
mon and teammate Candace 
Gingrich were chosen as NCAA 
All-Regional Honorable Mentions. 
lUP had more Academic AU- 
Americans than any other college 
in the United States. Tracey Bow- 
er, Diana Reinhard and Becca 
Joyce received this award. Win- 
ners must maintain a GPA of 3.5 
and start on the varsity team. 

Coach Montgomery has high 
hopes for next year. 

We are losing two players to 
graduation and we have a very 
strong junior varsity team," she

Men's Season Brings Disappointment 

For lUP basketball players and 
fans the 1987-88 season proved to 
be unexpected, disappointing and 

With seven veterans, six fresh- 
men and a transfer sophomore 
the roundballers finished the sea- 
son 9-18. The season began and 
ended with less than desirable 

The Indians lost at Pitt-Johns- 
town 87-74 despite the efforts of 
junior forward Mike Matthews 
(28 points, 6 rebounds) and soph- 
omore forward/center Frank 
Doug Macek 

Dicken (12 points, 7 rebounds). 
In the home opener against 
Fairmont State, junior center 
Tom Chaney's 16 points followed 
on the heels of Matthews' 18 
points and junior guard Paul Bur- 
nett's 19 points, but the Indians 
still suffered a 78-74 setback. The 
Indians headed into the third 
game against Glenville State. 
Shaking off their earlier misfor- 
tune, they handed Glenville an 
80-65 loss. Chaney scored 16 
points and grabbed 7 rebounds, 
and Matthews added 12 points 

with nine rebounds. 

Taking to the road, Beck's 
crew lost 86-67 to Duquesne 
where Todd Johns achieved a 
season-high 19 points. The Indi- 
ans claimed wins over St. Vincent 
in overtime, 74-63, Dyke, 86-79, 
and Point Park, 94-69. With losses 
at St. Francis, 71-69, and George 
Washington, 73-48, the Indians 
brought their record to 5-4. 

A 75-70 victory over Pitt-Brad- 
ford in the annual Christmas 
Tree Tournament was to be their 
last before a nine-game losing 
streak rocked the team. 

Kutztown overrode the Indians 
75-70 in the next game of the 
tournament. Next lUP was 
burned by Philadelphia Textile 
72-52 and Gannon 84-71 and 
pulled within three points 
against Edinboro, 76-73, and five 
at California, 70-65.

high field goal record at 14 
against Shippensburg where they 
had another loss, 69-56. Clarion 
dished out a 72-68 loss to the In- 
dians, although Chaney had a 
great game, gaining 16 rebounds 
and 21 points. Matthews pumped 
in 10 for 10 at the foul line. Lock 
Haven claimed the last game in 
the Indians' losing streak 73-56. 
lUP snapped that streak in a 73- 
66 win over Edinboro. 

California defeated lUP 71-64. 
Shippensburg was next, beating 
the Indians 64-63 as did Robert 
Morris 55-51. Three wins over 
Clarion, Cheyney and Slippery 
Rock found the team working as 
a unit and realizing their poten- 
tial. The season's end found lUP 
with yet another loss 72-58 from 
Lock Haven. Head Coach Tom 
Beck also announced his resigna- 
tion after a 32-year coaching

Rain Dampens Tennis Season 

Rain was a four-letter word for 
the lUP women's tennis team this 
year after it successfully stopped 
six matches. 

But the team ended the season 
with seven wins and four losses 
and placed fifth in the Pennsyl- 
vania State Athletic Conference 
(PSAC) championships. 

Head coach Jackie Albenze 
said the large number of cancel- 
lations hurt the team in the PSAC 
since states "rely heavily on con- 
ference records both individually 
and as a team." 

Physically the team was pre- 
pared to play, but psychologically 
the rain hurt them, according to 

"They felt ill prepared, but I 
don't agree with them," Albenze 
said. "I think sometimes we have 

so many matches that they are 
tired by the time we reach the 
state tournament." 

One reason .Albenze felt the 
team members were ready was 
because of this year's increased 

"I could see there was a differ- 
ence between our conditioning 
and our opponents' at the end of 
the season." .Albenze said. 

The team started the season 
early during an eight-day train- 
ing camp that began a week be- 
fore classes. Practice lasted five 
or six hours daily. 

Natalie Musci, who finished 
her tennis career second in sin- 
gles at states and Lori Ludwig. 
who finished fifth, both felt the 
best part of the season was the 
way everyone pulled together 

during the PS.AC matches. 

"By the time we got to states, 
people wanted to do their best," 
Musci said. "We came together as 
a team, rooted for each other and 
actually meant it." 

The longer training camp and 
greater emphasis on team spirit 
is what pulled the team together, 
according to Ludwig. 

For Albenze. the matches 
against West Liberty and Slip- 
pery Rock were the most 

The match with West Liberty 
was gratifying because earlier 
that morning the team lost to 
Charleston, 3-6, because they got 
"tight and nervous" Albenze said. 
But when faced by West Liberty, 
the team bounced back with a 6-2 

Joe Wojdk 

lUP beat Slippery Rock 8-1 and 
Albenze felt the team had "some 
of the best matches all season." 

.Albenze said with the gradua- 
tion of Linda Hanlon, Lori Ludwig 
and Natalie Musci. she is losing 
her most consistent players. 

"The position I'm losing is not 
critical, it's just the type of kid," 
Albenze said. 

She does feel there is a good 
nucleus coming back. .Albenze 
says the team will be young next 
year. Her two major goals for the 
next season are to have a win- 
ning record for her No. 1 player 
and to finish no lower than third 
at states.

Freshmen Basis Of '87 Team 

Hopes were riding high on nu- 
merous young faces that filled 
the 1987 women's volleyball ros- 
ter and in early practice sessions 
head coach Kim Johnson, in her 
second season, felt optimistic 
about the team's future. 

Johnson, along with first-year 
assistant coach .Mark Pavlik be- 
gan her first full effort at recruit- 
ing at the end of last year and 
landed some top talent in fresh- 
men Theresa Shellenberger, 
Stacy Markel, Karen Knaub, Tina 
Jenks, Molly Miles, Lisa Galanto 
and Carol Bufalini. 

Johnson was happy with the 
enthusiasm the freshmen players 
e.xhibited but was weary of the 
lack of upperclassman 

"I don't really mind having so 
many new players, but we miss 
the leadership on the floor," 
Johnson said. "Of course my team 
makes freshmen mistakes. We're 

But out of the practices 
emerged junior Tina Rauch who 
quickly jumped into the leader- 
ship role but more out of action 
rather than by talk, according to 

Along with Rauch stood co- 
captain Diana Schwartz and out- 
side hitter Terry Deter. 

As the '87 season unfolded. 
lUP resembled a team with first 
year starters alongside players 
with intercollegiate experience. 
Johnson explained it would take 
time before communication 
would flow smoothly among the 

The Indians showed signs of 
that in the Juniata Tournament 
in which IL'P emerged with a 2-3 

lUP played well in the prelimi- 
nary round, defeated Westmin- 
ster 15-8, 15-0. The passing game 
which Johnson was looking to im- 
prove since their disappointing 
loss to Robert Morris a week ear- 

lier, showed considerable 

"We are going up against most- 
ly upperclassmen while we're de- 
pending on one or two on the 
court," Johnson said. 

The middle game proved to be 
Il'P's biggest offensive weapon. 
Rauch combined with Markel 
overwhelmed opponents in some 
of Il'P's wins. It will be the com- 
bination to watch next fall as 
Johnson is once again on the re- 
cruiting trail and is returning 
with a majority of the starters. 

Miscommunication dimmed 
HP's hopes of post-season play, 
but for a team comprised mostly 
of freshmen, a foundation for a 
strong team has been made. 

"Considering the inexperience 
of our team and the newness of 
our offense, we are not far away 
from being one of the two teams 
going to states," Pavlik said. "The 
improvement is there for a nice, 
solid nucleus for two or three 


lUP got some good individual 
performances from Rauch and 
Schwartz in the PS.AC Western 
Division championships in which 
they placed fifth. 

"You just can't say enough 
about them," Pavlik said. "Tina 
has been very consistent in the 
back row. Another plus was the 
play of Tina Jenks. In the match 
against Slippery Rock, Tina kept 
us in the game. She picked up 
where Karen Knaub left off." 

An injury to Knaub midway 
through the season looked as if it 
might handicap HP's middle 
game, but players off the bench 
filled the vacancy. 

The outside hitting of Terry 
Deter and Carol Bufalini that 
gave IIP some success this past 
season will definitely be part of 
the Indians' arsenal next fall.

Downhill Year For Team 


The 1987 men's cross country 
season was impressively strong 
with lUP taking firsts in four 
successive tournaments and fin- 
ishing with a record of 76-9. Al- 
though they started off on top, 
the season went on to end in dis- 
appointment as the team failed to 
qualify for Nationals. Coach Lou 
Sutton characterized the end of 
the season as "unfortunate." Af- 
ter so many good races "regionals 
was the worst meet of the year," 
Sutton said. 

The Indians' first meet of the 
season took place at Old Domin- 
ion. There the team placed fourth 
overall hehind three Division 1 
teams: The University of North 
Carolina defending their title, 
William and Mary, and Old Do- 
minion. The next four meets were 
dominated by ll'P. Despite miser- 
able conditions of rain and mud. 
the lUP Invitational held at Mack 
Park found the Indians' .-^ and B 

teams taking first and second 
places. This was the first time in 
the seventeen-year history of the 
race that this had happened. IIP 
won 11 of the 20 placed in the 
race with John Flaherty taking 
first place. 

The Indians moved on to the 
.Alfred Invitational in New York 
and took first in a big way. All 
thirteen IIP participants fin- 
ished within the top 20. The team 
finished til points ahead of run- 
ner-up Alfred University. 

A high point of the season was 
the Notre Dame Invitational. lUP 
placed first in the Gold Division 
which included 20 Division I. II 
and strong Division III teams. 
The Indians had never won this 
title before. lUP was led by co- 
captains John Flaherty and .Mike 
Patton who finished i:3th and 
14th respectively. Coach Sutton 
said the two are "outstanding 
runners Iwho] both stood a 

chance at .AU-American." Sopho- 
more .Mike Rose finished 19th, 
freshman Eric Shafer took 32nd 
place and senior Dave Williams 
placed 40th, rounding out iUP's 
top finishers. 

The next win at West Liberty 
State College saw Mike Patton 
winning over John Flaherty with 
a time of 26:59 to 27:01. The 
healthy competition between 
these two excellent runners not 
only caused them to run better 
races but also fueled consistently 
good times from the rest of the 

After losing only to Edinboro 
in East Stroudsburg the Indians 
were still in a very good position 
for the regional meet. Unfortu- 
nately the meet at Bryant College 
in Rhode Island spelled defeat for 
the men's team. The Indians 
placed fifth and were not chosen 
as a wild-card to attend Nation- 
als. John Flaherty once again led 
the team with a 1.5th place finish 
followed by .Mike Patton in 19th 
place. As senior Paul Prox point- 
ed out, the loss at regionals 
"should not cause the graduating 
seniors to feel they had a poor 
season. They graduate leaving 
behind a great deal of good lead- 
ership, solid performances and 
goals for upcoming teams to shoot 
for in the future." 

.As coach Lou Sutton stepped 
down from his position and left 
the team in the hands of assis- 
tant coach Ed Fry. he left behind 
20 years of experience and a win- 
ning average of 88.2% He will still 
be working with the team and 
like everyone else, he hopes that 
next year will see some good 
leadership emerge and a strong 
team bound for nationals created.

Great Season Ends On Down Note 

lUP's women's cross country 
team faced many difficult meets 
this year and came out on top 
but, like the men's team, did not 
make it to Nationals. Weezie Ben- 
zoni, lUP's top runner, was invit- 
ed to Nationals individually and 
placed third, proudly represent- 
ing herself and lUP. 

Weezie was happy with her 
performance because it gave her 
a chance to show her pride in lUP 
and especially coach Ed Fry, who 
she describes as hei' "inspira- 
tion." A major- cause attributed to 
the team's failure to make na- 
tionals was that although they 
started the season with a great 
attitude, they seemed to lose con- 
fidence toward the end and as 
Weezie put it, "Once you start 
doubting yourself, it can't 

The first meet of the season at 
the California (Pa.) Invitational 
was also one of the hardest. The 
hilly course, made more difficult 
because of mud, consisted of a 
lar-ge number- of turns within the 
first mile. Despite these adver'se 
conditions lUP's A and B teams 
took first and second places. 

Weezie Benzoni was the indi- 
vidual winner- followed by Patty 
Kinch (2nd), Sara Pickering 
(I3rd), Lisa Bonaccorsi (4th) and 
Lisa Scarfone (7th). 

The ll'P Invitational was pre- 
dicted to be HP's race. The Lady 
Indians took first with a score of 
135 points, 25 ahead of Ithaca who 
Coach Fry had noted as a serious 
challenge. The individual win- 
ners were Kathy Stec from Ship- 
pensburg with a time of 19:04:6 
over Weezie's second-place finish 

of 19:14. The race was exciting 
and well-run because of the ef- 
forts of all the top runners who 
had to contend with rain and 
muddy conditions. 

At the Dickinson Invitational 
the Indians were up against some 
tough competition from Navy 
who captured first place with 23 
points, 56 points ahead of lUP. 

At the Paul Short .Memorial 
lUP placed 6th overall but was 
the No. 2 Division II finisher be- 
hind the University of Maryland. 
They finished impr-essively be- 
hind such Division 1 teams as Vil- 
lanova, Yale, Penn State and 
Georgetown. Out of 194 runners 
lUP placed five in the top 100 
with Benzoni finishing 13th with 
a time of 17:28. 

With their confidence spurred, 
lUP took first above host team 

Kent State at the Kent State Clas- 
sic. The women placed five in the 
top 10 finishers with Benzoni 
(1st), Pickering (3rd), Kinch 
(4th) and Wheeler (5th) with the 
same times of 19:04 and Bonac- 
corsi (10th). 

The women were ready for the 
PSAC State Meet where they cap- 
tured their fifth straight confer- 
ence championship with Benzoni 
claiming the individual women's 
title with a time of 18:22:7. Unfor- 
tunately this victor-y did not car- 
ry over when the Lady Indians 
traveled to Rhode Island for the 
Division II Regional Meet, .\fter 
the team failed to place, only 
Benzoni was invited to attend the 
National .Meet.

Parents Encourage Their Athletes 

Many colleges athletes lead ac- 
tive and happy lives, but if it 
were not for their parents' sup- 
port and love through the years 
they would not be where they are 

Some students play basketball 
and some football; others are in- 
volved in swimming or field 
sports. No matter what the sport 
may be, the students all have one 
thing in common— concerned 

Just like there is a variety of 
activities, there are various ways 
in which parents encourage their 
favorite athlete. The most com- 
mon and obvious, of course, is 
simply by coming to as many 
games as possible, if not all. Such 
is the case with Patti Connagh- 

an's parents, Bill and Regina, 
who said, "We've seen quite a 
few of her basketball games this 
year. We basically just tell her to 
do her best, and she usually 

However, some families can 
also help out financially by send- 
ing the athelte to a training 
camp. Mr. and .Mrs. Vanderau 
said, "We always encouraged 
Pam in whatever sport she pur- 
sued, and we went to many 
games." They added, "We've 
helped send her to field hockey 
camp two summers in a row 

Other parents came to games 
not only to see their children 
play, but because of specific in- 
terests either in the entire team 

or the sport itself. 

"His father' and I go to support 
the whole team," .Mar-y .Macek 
said in regar'ds to her son Doug, 
"but, of course, we ar'c always 
pr'oud of him when he does well." 
She added, "Whenever he swam, 
we were there. We really don't 
support him financially, but mon- 
ey doesn't solve ever-ything." 

Laura and Leann Santacroce's 
mother Jane commented, "1 try to 
make all the basketball games 
whenever it's possible because 1 
love to watch them play. 1 not 
only go to provide them moral 
support, but simply because 1 
have always enjoyed the sport." 

In addition, some families are 
so supportive that they show up 
when other "important" individ- 

uals do not. Mr-s. Gwen Matthews 
said that her family has gone to 
several of Mike's basketball 
games, including the Pitt game 
last year, but she remembers one 
game that had to be cancelled. 

"The one time 1 gathered the 
entire family so we could watch 
Mike play, the game was can- 
celled because the referees did 
not show up," she said. 

However, it does not matter 
how often the parents come to 
support their children, but it is 
important that a genuine concern 
exists. This supplies the athlete 
with a stable foundation and 
makes an otherwise average ath- 
lete successful because he knows 
someone cares and supports him.

Dream Come True For Runner 

Senior Elisa "Weezie" Benzoni, 
as she is bettei- known since ac- 
quiring the nickname during her 
childhood, is from Victoria, NV. 
and has come a long way since 
graduating from Bloomfieid High 

She was very athletic in high 
school coach Ed Fry of IIP said, 
but she never ran cross country 
until she came to college. She has 
been in cross country and track 
all four years of her college ca- 
reer and has acquired many 

Weezie's most recent accom- 
plishment in women's cross coun- 
try was at the NCAA Division II 
National Championships at 
Southern University of Indiana in 
Evansville where she recei\ed 

third place oveiall with a time of 
17.29. She finished behind Celia 
.Mosquedo of California State Los 
Angeles who is originally from 
.Mexico and Bente .Mo of Seattle 
Pacific from Norway, This made 
Weezie the top native I'nitcd 
States runner. 

She was able to go to nationals 
by earning second place in Rhode 
Island at the Northeast Kegi(jnal 
tournament. She has participated 
in nationals in cross country 
since her freshman year, but her 
best finish until recently was 
17th place in 1986. 

"I was really pleased with this 
this year. It's kind of like a dream 
come true. It's the way you 
dream to end your senior year, 
and it came true," said Weezie. 

"She has become stronger both 
physically and mentally, which is 
extremely important for long dis- 
tance running," Coach Fry said. 
This helps the runner to endure 
the length of the race and the 
side-by-side competition, he said. 

"She's a hard worker," Fry 
added. "I've never seen anyone 
work as hard as Weezie." 

Weezie was also the individual 
winner this year at the PSAC 
Championship Meet when IL'P 
won the team title for the fifth 
straight year. 

She is not just an athlete, how- 
ever. During the Fall 1987 semes- 
ter, Weezie was awarded the Sal- 
ly B. Johnson Scholarship award. 
This is given every year to an 
outstanding senior athlete partic- 
ipating in any of the nine wom- 
en's sports sponsored on campus. 
She has maintained a Dean's List 
average as a pre-medical major. 

Recently Weezie was honored 
with her fourth All-American ti- 
tle in cross country at a dinner 
honoring all All-Americans. She 
has gained this title every year 
she has run.

New Coach Brings Life To Team 

Joy htx'b 

The lUP men's swim team 
was given a much-needed shot 
in the arm in 1987 when Frances 
Nee, previously the swim coach 
at Elizabeth-Forward High in 
Pittsburgh, was named head 
coach for both squads, combined 
them as one unit for the first 

Jan Murtha remained assis- 
tant coach, and John Wingfield 
stayed as head diving coach. 

After training since Septem- 
ber, the squad traveled to 
Bloomsburg Nov. 14 to take part 
in their annual relay meet. lUP 
got their first victory of the year 
as the Indians touched out Slip- 
pery Rock for the first-place 

"It was a good way to begin the 
season," said Nee. 

The squad next traveled to 
Westminster on Dec. 8. The 
strong Indian team overpowered 
the Titans, winning 135-82. Ju- 
niors Brian Eckenrode, Bob Ogor- 
euc, Pete LeRoy, Dan Williams 
and senior Cris Lang all snagged 
individual wins for lUP. Three 
days later the Indians took on 
Clarion, the perennial state 

champs. The result was a close 
loss, 101-109, with AU-American 
senior co-captain Scott Nagel tak- 
ing first place in the 400-yard in- 
dividual medley. 

The team then headed to Boca 
Raton, Fla., and the famed Mis- 
sion Bay Aquatic Training Center 
for their winter conditioning trip. 
The squad practiced in outdoor 
pools every day for four hours 
with weight training also includ- 
ed for 11 straight days. 

According to Nee, "Our prima- 
ry reason for going down there 
was to swim and, believe me, 
they swam hard." 

The tired Indians returned 
Jan. 11 only to board another bus 
Jan. 16 for a meet with Blooms- 
burg. The men dominated the 
young Bloomsburg team, captur- 
ing first place in every event. 
Winners included Eckenrode, 
Ogoreuc, Williams, Lang, Nagel, 
senior Ken Simpson and senior 
co-captain Doug Macek. 

On Jan. 23 the team suffered 
what would turn out to be its last 
loss for the year against the na- 
tionally-ranked Red Raiders of 
Shippensburg by a 96-107 margin. 

Their next meet against Edinboro 
would turn out to be the most 
exciting of the season. 

Down by one point going into 
the 4 X 100-yard freestyle relay, 
lUP turned to the foursome of 
freshman Todd Jones, Eckenrode, 
Macek and Nagel. Nagel, who had 
already taken firsts in the 200- 
yard freestyle and backstroke 
events, turned out to be the hero 
when he came from behind to 
touch out the last Edinboro swim- 
mer by only three-tenths of a sec- 
ond. Other winners included Eck- 
enrode in the 500- and 1000-yard 
freestyle events, Williams on the 
one and three meter diving 
boards and Simpson in the 200- 
yard breaststroke. 

After recording two more vic- 
tories over Fairmont and Slippery 
Rock, the team headed to Clarion 
on Feb. 16 for the state champi- 
onship meet. Here the team fin- 
ished in fourth place behind Clar- 
ion, Shippensburg and Edinboro. 
Nagel once again reigned as state 
champion in the 400-yard individ- 
ual medley, but just missed quali- 
fying for the national champion- 
ships. Ken Simpson qualified. 

setting an lUP record in the 100- 
yard breaststroke and finishing 
second. Diver Dan Williams also 
became eligible for the trip to 
Buffalo, N.Y., when he qualified 
on the three meter board. Other 
Indians recording excellent fin- 
ishes at the state meet included 
freshman Jack Schmitt in the 
100- and 200- yard breaststrokes, 
LeRoy in the 200-yard backstroke 
and Eckenrode's record-setting 
finishes in the 500- and 1650-yard 
freestyle events. 

The national meet resulted in 
three more lUP records as Simp- 
son broke his own in taking 19th 
in the 100-yard breaststroke and 
14th in the 200-yard version, nar- 
rowly missing Ail-American sta- 
tus in the latter. Williams added 
two more excellent performances 
on both boards for a pair of 19th 
place finishes. 

Coach Nee was very pleased 
with the results of her first sea- 
son with the Indians and looks 
for bigger and better things in 
the years to come.

Record-Breaking Season For Women 

What a year it was! Under the 
direction of first-year head coach 
Frances Nee, assistant Jan Mur- 
tha and diving coach John Wing- 
field the women's team set 15 
lUP records on their way to a 
successful 7-3 season. 

"It was a great year," Nee said. 

Though both teams had to 
overcome the switch from two 
separate coaches and two pools to 
one coach, one pool and one team, 
it was the women's squad that 
had it the hardest. The swimmers 
were uprooted from their old 
home in Zinl< Hall to a new locker 
room that had been built for 
them just off the deck of the Me- 
morial Field House Natatorium. 
Suddenly a pool which once held 
20 men at a time for practice now 
held twice that, all of which 
made for six crowded lanes and 
long practices. It also made many 
of the men mindful of their egos. 

"There were no such thing as 
slacking off during sets any- 
more," said junior Brian Ecken- 
rode, "or one of the girls was go- 
ing to swim right over you." 

Coach Nee said, "Combining 
the two teams was the smartest 

thing (Athletic Director) Frank 
Cignetti ever did for the swim- 
ming program here at lUP." 

The women began their season 
with a win over Lock Haven. It 
was here that Janice Clarkson, a 
sophomore transfer from West 
Virginia University, began her 
string of record-setting perfor- 
mances, breaking the 200- and 
500-yard freestyle records. The 
women won every event in the 
meet. Other winners included na- 
tional-qualifier Kris Hotchkiss, 
Lisa Schmitt, Julie DeVore, Lisa 
Meyer, captain Suzie Glass, Kim 
Stennet, Jenny Meyers and Paula 

The Lady Marauders from Mil- 
lersville came to lUP and once 
again Clarkson set another re- 
cord, this time in the 1000-yard 
freestyle event. Diver Kris Hotch- 
kiss also set a record on the one- 
meter board for six dives. 

After a convincing win over 
Duquesne, the women left for 
their fourth dual meet of the sea- 
son at Frostburg, Md. In 1986 the 
Indians were dealt a one-point 
loss by that team. This year 
though, it was a different story 

as lUP captured every event in a 
160-103 victory. 

After returning from a winter 
training trip in Boca Katon, Fla., 
with the men's team, the women 
took on the Huskies of Blooms- 
burg. The squad suffered their 
first loss of the year, but not be- 
fore they had broken three more 
lUP records. Captain Suzie Glass 
grabbed one in the 100-yard back- 
stroke. Clarkson earned one in 
the 1650-yard freestyle. Donna 
Visnofsky, Paula Lamendola and 
Lisa Meyer teamed up with Glass 
to take one in the 400-yard med- 
ley relay. Kris Hotchkiss became 
the first diver in the history of 
the women's program to qualify 
for the national championships. 

After losing a close one to 
Shippensburg, the team got back 
on the winning track with a vic- 
tory over Edinboro. Lisa Meyer 
stole the limelight as she set a 
record in the 100-yard freestyle 

After recording easy wins over 
Washington and Jefferson and 
Fairmont State the team suffered 
one more loss at the hands of the 
tough Slippery Rock team. The 

Indians had no time to worry 
about the loss because the state 
championships were just 10 days 

At the state meet at Clarion 
the team captured a solid fourth 
place in the PSAC. The entire 
team swam well, especially fresh- 
man Jenny Meyers who placed in 
the 100- and 200-yard back- 
strokes, 400-yard individual med- 
ley and 400-yard freestyle relay 
with Meyer, Visnofsky and Clark- 
son. Kris Hotchkiss placed fourth 
on the three-meter board and 
1 2th on the one-meter board. 

At the national championships 
Hotchkiss was the women's lone 
representative. She did not disap- 
point anyone as she took 20th 
and 22nd in the nation, respec- 
tively, on the three- and one-me- 
ter diving boards. 

According to coach Nee, the 
team lived up to all of her expec- 
tations and she anxiously awaits 
the 1988-89 season to begin the 
climb up the state and national

Gymnasts Reunite The Record Books 

The I UP gymnastics team had 
an excellent season in 1987-88. 
They achieved a better record 
and went farther in competition 
than any Indian gymnastics team 
preceding them. 

At the close of their last meet, 
the Division I Regionals in Penn 
State's Recreation Hall, their re- 
cord stood at 32-12. In the course 
of the season the team rewrote 
the entire record book, and many 
individuals set highei' personal 

The Indians began the season 
higher than they ever had. Their 
final score in the intrasquad 
meet was 168.35, signifying to 
coaches Dan Kendig and Gary 
Stam that this was a high-quality 
team they were dealing with— 
one which, if coached well, would 
go very far. 

Once again the gymnasts' 
schedule included many very 
tough Division I competitiors. 
However, HP met the challenges 
and improved meet by meet, an 
annual goal set forth by head 
coach Kendig. 

They began regular-season ac- 
tion in January with an away 
meet against host West Virginia 
University, Penn State and the 
University of Maryland. They 
placed fourth in the meet, but 
they stayed with the Division I 

competition and broke 170.00 
with 172.70. 

Although they began the sea- 
son scoring in the low 170's, by 
the end of the season their scor- 
ing record was placed at a lofty 
181.70, achieved when they won 
at Division 11 Nationals. 

This year's team was com- 
prised of four seniors, three ju- 
niors, three sophomores and six 

Their 1986 vaulting score of 
46.05 was broken in the final dual 
meet of the regular season 
against Auburn. The record now 
stands at 46.40. 

Rose Johnson, a sophomore, 
once again set the school's indi- 
vidual vaulting record of 9.60, 
which she earned foi- her perfor- 
mance at home against James 
Madison University and Kent 
State. This was also the first time 
lUP defeated KSU. 

The uneven bars peaked late 
for the team this year, despite a 
fair showing in the pie- and early 
season. Both team and individual 
scoring records on bars were the 
last to go down this year. At the 
Division II Nationals the bar 
team scored a 46.00 when they 
went six-for-six on the event. 
Contributing to this record was 
junior Dina Carrieri with the in- 
dividual scoring record of 9.45.

lUP's beam team was its hid-

sometimes it was more hidden 
than others. These six girls first 
broke the 1986 record of 44.00 at 
home against Geoige Washington 
University when they scored 
44.80. By the season's end the 
scoring record in beam was ele- 
vated to 45.50, which they earned 
at Division I Regionals. 

Junior Michelle Goodwin 
owned the beam's individual 
scoring record of 9.06, earned at 
the George Washington 

Floor's individual scoring re- 
cord went to Rose Johnson who 
had 9.60 in the Division II Region- 
al Meet held at lUP. The team 
scoring record now stands at 
45.50, also earned at regionals. 

Michelle Goodwin also holds 

the all-around scoring record of 

37.40, which she earned at the 

George Washington Invitational. 

The Indians gymnasts ended 

the season April 19, 1988, with 
a third-place finish at Divi- 
sion 1 Regionals, a meet which 
featured six other Division 1 
teams. lUP was only bettered by 
host Penn State and Ohio State. 
The Indian gymnasts defeated 
Pitt, who beat lUP three times 
during the course of the regular 
season, and New Hampshire, who 
beat lUP once in 1988.

strong Season For Rifle Team 

The lUP Rifle Team finished 
their season 9-2 in 1987-88. 

The team began the season in 
October on a down note with a 
two-point loss to Canisius, and 
they won their next match 
against Washington and Jeffer- 
son by forfeit. 

In their next match, lUP faced 
Canisius and Duquesne. Jon Pri- 
bicko and John Milavec led the 
lUP shooters to the win, both 
shooting 548 points. IL'P scored 
2077 total, narrowly defeating 
Canisius (2076) and Duquesne 

Next IL'P defeated Duquesne 
and St. Francis with a score of 
2119 against their scores of 2025 

and 1817, respectively. 

St. Francis fell next to the In- 
dians 2096 to 1893. Pribicko and 
Milavec once again led all shoot- 
ers with 538 and 555. 

The Indians faced Canisius for 
a third time along with St. Fran- 
cis and Duquesne. Canisius won 
the match with 2084 points with 
lUP right behind with 2083. Du- 
quesne was next with 1938 and 
St. Francis finished with 1831. 

IL'P defeated Washington and 
Jefferson 1970 to 992. 

In February the team travelled 
to the National Rifle Association 
Sectionals held at the U.S. Naval 
Academy at .\nnapolis, Md. They 
came awav with third in the sec-

for the losses," said head coach 
Tom Campisano. John Milavec 
agreed, saying "It wasn't what it 
should have been. It could have 
been better." 

The team will be losing one

have two freshmen and five 
sophomores to form a base for 
next year.

"Twd bits, four bits, six bits, a 
(idllaf ..." may sound lii<e a 
cheei- from the 19o()s but, in an 
effort to encourage crowd partici- 
pation and school spirit, those 
were the words to a cheer per- 
formed by the lUP cheerleaders 
during the 1987-88 season. 

"We're trying to gear cheers 
and chants to the fans. We've had 
a lot of support, especially at the 
state (football) game and the 
bonfire, which was the first one 
held in a very long time," said 
captain .Michelle McKee, a senior 
marketing major. 

The lUP squad began its first 
semester as a recognized univei- 
sity sport by attending a five-day 
instructional camp on .Aug. 17 at 

Rutgers, N.J. For the first time 
all 14 members of the squad were 
able to attend the camp where 
they learned material to encour- 
age crowd support. The camp, 
sponsored by Universal Cheer- 
leaders Association, also gave 
lUP the opportunity to compete 
against approximately 15 Divi- 
sion II schools. lUP brought home 
three trophies: most-improved 
squad, first place in cheers and 
second place in fight song. 

During the football season the 
squad members began practicing 
for a videotape to be submitted 
for a national competition. lUP 
won fifth place out of 40 squads 
which marked their best showing 
since the competition began. 

"1 think this year as a squad 
we worked together well . . . it's 
definitely the best squad talent- 
wise and in team-work and team 
effort," McKee said. 

Listed by partners, the fall 
squad members were: Tom Ad- 
ams and .Molly George, Greg Hoff- 
man and Tammy Bean, Rich 
Manko and Jean Barno, Karl 
McCall and Suzanne Gray, Jody 
Owen and .Michelle McKee (cap- 
tain), Terry Schrock (captain) 
and Chrissy Zack, and Jody Wire- 
man and Mary Casey. The lUP 
mascots were .Mike Weisberg and 
Christina Guthrie.

Beck Closes Out 16- Year Career 

One can usually tell the end of 
basketball practice by the blow- 
ing of a whistle, and after 16 
years at I LP Tom Beck ended his 
last practice of his coaching 

Tom Beck, who will still retain 
his teaching career at lUP, re- 
signed at the end of the 1987-88 
season and left behind him '42 
years of coaching experience. 

"Coaching has been a big, big 
pait of my life for the past 82 
years," said Beck, "so it is with 
very mixed feelings I am making 
this move. 

"I know that come next Octo- 
ber 15 (starting date for college 
practices) I will miss coaching. 
But by the same token, there is 
no doubt in my mind that this is 
the right nio\e." 

Beck started his careei- at lUP 
in 1972 and woiked with Carl Da- 
vis as an assistant. After 11 years 
and compiling a lGO-111 mark 
highlighted by seven post-sea.son 
playoff appearances, Beck was 
named interim head coach after 
Davis' resignation in July 1983. 
That season was billed as "Tom 
Beck's Yeai." 

In his first year, he led the 
Indians to a 12-15 record, a tre- 
mendous accomplishment consid- 
ering that the Indians did not 
have any returning starters and 
Beck was without a full-time as- 
sistant coach. 

However, 1984-85 was his best

year as he commanded the Indi- 
ans to a 17-10 record, five of the 
losses to Division I foes. That 
year he was given the head 
coaching job and a full-time as- 
sistant and defensive specialist, 
Tony Bernardi. 

"It's been said many times that 
a program and a head coach are 
only as good as their assistants. 
The success of the program has 
been due in a large part to Tony 
Bernardi. He is both an outstand- 
ing, quality person and an excel- 
lent coach," Beck said. 

After five years, they compiled 
a 66-70 mark, guiding the Indians 
to the playoffs each time in his 
first four years. Beck has had 
many assistants and coaches in 
his years and has seen many good 

After he graduated from Slip- 
pery Rock in 1954, he then earned 
his master's at Duquesne Univer- 
sity in 1962. He began his coach- 
ing career at the junior high level 
in Hempfield .school district near 
his hometown of Youngwood. 

From there he went to Hurst 
High School in nearby .Mount 
Pleasant as head coach, and be- 
came head coach as he served as 
coach of its first two teams be- 
fore moving on to Northeast High 
in Maryland, In his three years at 
the helm, Northeast advanced to 
the state playoffs each time. 

From there he went to Clarion 
where he was an assistant for six 

years before coming to lUP. Dur- 
ing his 16 years at lUP, Beck com- 
piled a 224-180 record. 

.According to Coach Beck, wins 
and losses are not the only things 
important to coaching, at least 
not to him. 

"I think the greatest thrill I 
get from coaching," said Beck, "is 
working with a kid in practice 
and see him do something in the 
game and knowing that you 
helped him do that. It's great. 

"Also, seeing a kid graduate 
from college and knowing that 
you had a part in that is wonder- 
ful. You don't measure that in 
dollars and cents." 

"Tom Beck has given 16 years 
of loyal and dedicated service to 
lUP basketball. He has always 
represented the university in a 
positive manner," said Frank Cig- 
netti, director of intercollegiate

Sutton Retires After 20 Years 

The hisldiy of the man who 
dedicated two decades to coach- 
ing men's cfoss country and track 
and field, and who in turn be- 
came one of Division II's most 
successful coaches, is displayed 
in a 1(1 X (i foot room in Zink Hall, 

The name placed outside the 
door reads l.ou Sutton. Inside re- 
clines a man who recently relin- 
quished his head coaching posi- 
tion to colleague Kd Fry. 
Surrounded hv symbols of nation- 

al chaiiipionslups, Siition seems 
content with his decision to step 
down as head coach but to re- 
main teaching. 

Sutton, who stepped down 
from the head coaching Job of the 
track and field team in U)S(), said 
he would miss the everyday con- 
tact with the team. 

Among the many trips Sutton 
has made with the men's cross 
country team was the U)87 excur- 
sion to i.os .-Xngeles for the na-

tional championships. .Although 
lUP fell short of capturing the 
title, Sutton said the trips in 
themselves were the real 

"They've all been special 
trips," Sutton said. 

Photographs of races from 
around the I'nited States and tro- 
phies of track and field champi- 
onships serve as reminders of a 
twenty-year tenure as mentor of 
the iUP teams. 

Behind each picture lies a frac- 
tion of Sutton's success story and 
his drive to settle for nothing less 
than a top-quality program. 

Ironically, Sutton was not 
hired for his coaching back- 
ground in 19()7. Instead, he came 
here as an intramural specialist. 
But when the position of track 
coach needed to be filled, the ath- 
letic director asked Sutton to take 

Though hesitant at first, he 
eventually accepted the job and 
has since compiled a winning per- 
centage and a 1(19-1(1-1 dual 

The Indians under Sutton nev- 
er bordered on a losing season in 
men's cross country oi' track. His 
1987 team managed a 7(i-9 record 
against many Divison II entrants. 
Under his guidance, IUP ad- 
vanced to 12 straight Division II 
national meets from 197o to i9S(i, 
finishing as high as third in 1977 
and fourth in 1982.

"When I first started out, I had 
different expectations," he said. 
"I thought, if only 1 could get 
someone to nationals. Then in the 
NAI.A, I had three people in track 

"They didn't place. So the next 
year I thought, if only I could get 
someone to place." 

lUP's Dim Slusser fulfilled that 
wish by placing sixth in the 
NAIA marathon in 1972 and '73. 
"I was proud for the school, for 
him and the coaches," Sutton 

It was undei' Sutton that sev- 
en-time All-.American Jim Wood- 
ing demonstrated his athletic 
prowess and made his trip to the 
1984 Summer Olympics. "Watch- 
ing him compete was some kind 
of experience that many coaches 
at this level don't get to experi- 
ence," said Sutton. 

One achievement eluded Sut- 
ton, who was twice named North- 
eastern United States Coach of 
the Year, and that was winning a 
national championship in cross 
country. Third place was as close 
as he got. 

For his outstanding conduct in 
the 1987 Nationals, Sutton was 
extended a special commendation 
by the NCAA. He served as presi- 
dent of the NCAA National Cross 
Country Coaches Associatiim in 
1980-81 and earned it a Distin- 
guished Service .-Xward in 1982. 

"Twenty years is probably 
enough for anybody," Sutton said 
of his 2(l-hour work weeks. ".As 
you get older, you get a different 
perspectice with what you want 
to do."

Baseball Team Division Champs 

With a record of 28 wins and 9 
losses, the Indians had not only 
one of the hest team recoids in 
years but also the title of West- 
ern Division Champions for the 
first time since 1980. 

The team secured this title by 
beating constant opponent Slip- 
pery Rock at Pullman Park in 
Butler, Pa., on May 6. Here they 
also improved their chances of 
winning at PSACs on May 13 
through 15. 

Coach Jeriy Hand had set foi- 
the team the goal of 3U wins, and 
although they just fell short of 
this, they came through on the 
challenge to reach PS.-XC's, this 
year in first place as opposed to 
their second place standing of the 
last two years. 

"We like to be realistic," said 
Coach Hand. "We (lUP) haven't 
won States in eight yeai's so oui' 
goal is always to win PSACs so 
we can move on to the National 

These realistic goals have 
helped the team to not only shoot 
for a goal but also to pull togeth- 
er as a group. 

Pitcher Mike Sobota summed 
up the season as the best he has 
had personally and that the team 
has had as a whole. 

"This is the best team in a lot 
of years. From hitters to pitchers, 
the whole team has a great atti- 
tude," he said. 

The 1988 season saw a very 
strong and harmonious team 
ready to attain the coach's goals. 
Coach Hand indicated "all the se- 
niors played important roles" this 
season. Mike Sobota and Rob Be- 
dillion shared a strike out record 
of 52 apiece by April 21. Gino 
Startari did "an outstanding Job 
defensively but also offensively 
by having a great batting record. 
Right fielder Greg Greczek, the 
clean-up hitter, had a very good 
year," Hand continued. 

Although these and other se- 
niors like Mike Meyer and Bob 
Covatch will be leaving, the team 
has plenty of potential for next

also the most doubles, triples and

provide leadership for another

With these returning players, 
next season is looking very good. 
"The program is one with stabil-

though there are good players 
graduating there are capable 
team members to take their

new pitchers and catchers to help

less rain, next year looks to be as 
good or maybe even better than

Season Ends With A Bang 

Finishing with a 16-16 record 
was not in head softball coach 
Kim Johnson's plans for her sec- 
ond year. 

"I thought we would have done 
much better than we did." John- 
son said. "We had seven starters 
that returned this year." 

Losing only three letterwin- 
ners from the previous year. ILT 
appeared to be in good shape for 
the start of the season. 

This year's team had nine let- 
terwinners returning, including 
Beth Blaisdell. Miss! Fucci. Sue 
Fulton and .\ngie Kephart. 

The ILT women's softball team 
began their season winning their 
first game against Suny-Bing- 
hamton 6-0. but then lost three 
consecutive doubleheaders to 
Shippensburg, Allegheny and 

During their next eight games, 
they managed to win only three 
of them. 

"We had a rough start at the 

beginning of the season, but I 
think we came out of it all right." 
Johnson said. 

The team managed to win 1 1 of 
their final 14 games, including 
their last six in a row with senior 
Beth Blaisdell leading the way 
with an 11-3 record during the 

Blaisdell pitched in 28 out of 32 
games, accumulating a 16-10 re- 
cord and leading the pitching 
staff with a 1.39 earned run 

Other top contributors were 
Fucci. who batted .3ilG during the 
season: Fulton, who played in all 
the regular season games and 
batted .314; and Kephart, who 
batted .289. 

Johnson was also quick to note 
that two freshmen were an im- 
portant factor for the team this 

"We were very pleased with 
the progress of our two freshmen. 
Debbie Chuss and Tina Morrow." 

Johnson said. 

Chuss, a pitcher and designat- 
ed hitter, led the team in hitting 
with a .358 average. 

Morrow, the team's catcher, 
led the team in outs made with 91 
and batted .300. 

The women's softball team 
fared very well in the PS.\C play- 
offs, finishing third overall. 

"I was very happy to see the 
team play the latter half of the 
season the way I know they 
could," Johnson said. "Finishing 
third in the PS.AC Playoffs is 
great considering the way our 
season started." 

For next year, losing Blaisdell 
and Fulton might have its toll on 
the team. On the other hand, 
good recruits and consistent per- 
formances from the players 
might be enough to fill the holes 
that have been left.

Successful Season For Track Team 

The lUP men's track team had 
anothei' outstanding yeai' undei'

coach Ed Fry. 

Four athletes qualified for the 
NCAA Division II Meet in San An- 
gelo, Texas, led by Eugene Delle- 
monache in the shot put and dis- 
cus. Bob Babiak in the decathlon 
and Biyon Whipkey and Jeff 
Neral in the javelin were the oth- 
er athletes to qualify for 

The team traveled as far away 
as North Caiolina to compete this 
season, with many outstanding 
performances occurring all year. 
Weather was the big problem for 
the team, though. At each meet 
the team was faced with adverse 
conditions, whether it be wind, 
cold temperatures or rain. Each 
time, however, the team had an 
impressive performance in some 

At North Carolina, Eugene Del- 
lemonache and Jeff Neral quali- 
fied foi- nationals foi- the second 
consecutive year. Later in the 
year, a recoid five athletes trav- 
elled to the prestigious Penn Re- 
lays, including high jumper Kay 
Sharick, steeple chasei- Chris 
Flynn and Babiak who finished 
third and qualified for nationals. 

Aftei' the North Carolina meet, 
the team travelled to Towson 
State in Maryland. Howard Miller 
and Paul Prox led the team with 
state qualifying performances in 
the 10,000 and 5,000-meter runs. 

The UP Open, held Easter \Ve- 
keend, was the next meet. The 
weather, for the first time, was 
excellent. lUP's mile relay team 

remained undefeated and the 
field team, or "beefheads," con- 
tinued to dominate the 

At The Shippensburg Invite 
the team once again did well, led 
by Er-ic Vassal in the long jump 
(school record) and Kevin Patter- 
son in the 400. 

The weather was poor but at 
the California Invitational, fr'esh- 
man Eric Shafer and another 
handful of athletes qualified for 
the state meet. 

At WVT, Ron Kustaborder' was 
the last lUP athlete to qualify for 
states in the 10,000 meters. At 
that point the team got a week 
off before a chance at the state 
championships to be held at lUP. 

At home, the Indians wei'e a 
close second to Edinboro after' the 

first day's events, but ended up 
finishing third behind the Fight- 
ing Scots and Shippensburg. At 
states, a fourth and final athlete 
qualified for nationals— Bryon 
Whipkey in the javelin. 

The season was a success for 
the team, climaxed by the PSAC 
meet at home in May. Fry and 
assistant coaches Jim Wooding 
and Bob Raemore had to be 
pleased with the '88 season, and 
look ahead to better things in

Best Year Ever For lUP Men's Tennis 

The 1988 men's tennis season 
started off on just the right foot 
In March, as the seven-member 
varsity team began the year on 
the courts without a great turn- 
over of players. 

With no lettermen lost from 
the 1987 season, the team kicked 
off the '88 year with seven re- 
turning racketmen. Seniors Joe 
Fadden, Brad Hanes, and Tim 
Nuss, along with junior Jim 
Welker and sophomores Garrison 
Gladfelter, Mario Gliazzi and Jeff 
Robson rounded out the 1988 
season and ended the tally with 
an overall record of 14-2. 

With an NCAA Division 11 sev- 
enth-ranked position at mid-sea- 
son, the Indians boasted quite an 
impressive season overall. With 
losses only to Pitt (6-3) and Edin- 
boro (5-4), the lUP men handed 
in a season with victories over St. 
Francis, West Liberty State, 

Westminster, Duquesne, Lock Ha- 
ven, Penn State-Behrend, Juni- 
ata, Shippensburg, Slippery Rock, 
Frostburg State (.Md.), Gannon 
and Wooster. The men finished 
the season with the PSAC tourna- 
ment at Bloomsburg, where the 
Indians fell .second to the Huskies 
in early May. 

This year's most outstanding 
team performance, according to 
coach Vince Celtnieks, was 
against Gannon March 26, where 
lUP crowned Gannon 8-1 on the 
visitors' courts. 

""It was definitely one of our 
best matches," said Celtnieks. 
"Other teams have played them 
and lost, but we beat them. They 
had strong players," he contin- 
ued, "but we played well through 
the whole match." 

Most notable in the lUP-Gan- 
non match was sophomore Dave 
Jacobs, who Celtnieks said "had 

just been put in this position (as 
a singles player), and he beat his 

Celtnieks cited Welker and 
Hanes as the top-seeded players 
for 1988. 

"Jim won all his matches in 
the regular season in two sets," 
said Celtnieks. "And he had only 
one loss as a regular-season play- 
er last year. 

"Brad only lost one match in 
singles this season, and last year 
he didn't a match in singles 
at all." 

"Together, Welker and Hanes 
have totalled 30 doubles matches 
without a loss and in singles fin- 
ished 29-1 for two years overall. 
In regular-season play, the two 
seniors have been undefeated for 
the last two years. 

Other season notables wee 
Gliazzi and Robson, with a 9-7 
overall record in doubles; fourth- 

seeded Nuss with a 14-1 singles 
season, and the Paul Smith-N'uss 
duo, who finished with an im- 
pressive overall record of 14-2. 

Celtnieks reflected on lUP's 
third-spotted title in the state in 
the early 1970s, but summed up 
the Indians' 1988 season by not- 
ing, "This is the best overall fin- 
ish for lUP tennis— ever."

Intramurals: Growth And Confrontation 

The year began with comput- 
ers and ended in confrontation, 
but both led to changes in the 
intramural department in the ac- 
ademic year 1987-1988 which will 
better their opei'ations in the 

According to Dr. Royden 
Grove, director of intramurals, 
"We've entered the computer 

Grove referred to the purchase 
of the department's computer 
which now enables them to put 
all correspondence, rules and I'eg- 
ulations and scheduling informa- 
tion for intramural activities into 
its memory. 

"It just makes for fantastic re- 
cord keeping," Grove said. "And 
it has made so many things easier 
for us to manage." 

Grove went on to explain how 
they could store all intramural 
results on the new computer and 
have the team win/loss records 
available to be printed out at any 
time. He also explained how 
much the computer would help 
with the revision of rules of 
sports from year to year. 

"A lot of redundant things that 
were done every year are now 
semi-automatic," he said. "The 
student doesn't see that, but it 
does improve the quality of the 

The confrontation of the year 
was between Grove and Athletic 
Director Frank Cignetti and a 
controversy over softball playing 

Intramurals such as ping pong and soft- 
ball were open to all members of the stu- 
dent body during the school year. 

facilities, but it ended with posi- 
tive, long-term results for every- 
one involved. 

According to Grove, Cignetti 
felt that the football team was in 
need of more space in the spring, 
and so he refused at first to allow 
women's softball to play on the 
practice fields by Miller Stadium. 

Traditionally, women's softball 
has played on these on-campus 
fields while men's softball played 
on the off-campus fields of Mack 
Park and Getty Heights, Grove 
said, but Cignetti suggested the 
two share these off-campus facil- 
ities, and cut the men's roster 
down to allow enough space for 

"But guys will go anywhere to 
play," Grove said. "Girls really 
won't (go that far to play), and 
we've got to give them equal 

"I cancelled the men's softball 
knowing it would cause a flap," 
he continued. "When it hit THE 
PENN, the administration woke 
up and we worked something 

The controversy ended on a 
good note, according to Grove, be- 
cause it got the administration to 
recognize that there was a real 
problem with available facilities. 

"In the long run the students 
will benefit from the softball 
problem," he said. "Now they're 
looking into trying to light the 
fields on campus so we can better 
utilize the space we have." 

It was somewhere between the 
computers and the softball con- 
troversy that the intramural de- 
partment made another small ac- 
quisition which led to major 
improvements in their system ef- 
ficiency: They bought a phone 
message recorder. 

Maybe it sounds trivial, but ac- 
cording to Grove it has enhanced 
the quality of communication 

"Every night at 4:30 (when the 

office closes), we turn it on," he 
said. "The machine says what 
gyms are being used, so you can 
see if you could play a pickup 
game of basketball, and it says 
what changes have been made in 
the schedules. It saves a lot of 
trouble in communication mix-

to become involved. For the business- 
minded, there are accounting and mar-

fraternities allow students to make con- 
tacts and learn more about their profes- 
sions as they get one step closer to 
entering the "real" world. Other clubs 
take the form of sports such as the

chance to exchange 
ideas and career goals. Some clubs set 
up symposiums and workshops where 
its members can learn interviewing pro- 
cesses and job-hunting techniques. Be- 
cause they are recognized by the uni- 
versity and follow a drawn constitution, 
these organizations are able to use uni-

but the existing clubs at lUP enable 
students from practically every interest

ACEI Helps Cheer 
Local Children 

Working to foster individual 
growth and inter-personal rela- 
tionships throughout the mem- 
bership and society is the main 
goal of the Association for Child- 
hood Education International 
(ACEI), President Mary Pelle- 
grino said. 

The group, consisting mainly 
of future teachers and profes- 
sionals, is also interested in "the 
improvement of the quality of life 
for children of all ages, races and 
creeds." Pellegrino added. 

ACEI has 45 members who are 
primarily elementary education 
majors. The group held many ac- 
tivities throughout the year in- 
cluding a haunted house which 
over 100 children and their par- 
ents attended, an arts and crafts 
workshop for elementary educa- 
tion majors, visits to Indiana Hos- 
pital's pediatrics unit for Christ- 
mas and St. Patrick's Day, and a 
self-esteem symposium featuring 

Dr. Steven Sorokan, 

The group sold sweatshirts 
which stated: "If you can read 
this, thank a teacher." ACEI also 
held an orientation social at the 
beginning of the year, arranged a 
field trip to the Department of 
Education in Washington, D.C., 
and had a spring banquet and 
awards ceremony. 

".•\CEI lets students interact 
with the community and work 
with different kinds of children," 
member Nina Lonchar said. 

"The teamwork and support 
from the members are very spe- 
cial qualities of the group," Leigh 
Templeton added.

AB Creates 
Fun For lUP 

It has been a busy year for the lUP Activi- 
ties Board. AB sponsored the Love and Rock- 
ets concert, the Parent's Day Dinner Cabaret 
with comedian Tim Settimmi, the annual Pre- 
Exam Jam, The Best of the 'Burgh concert 
featuring three bands from Pittsburgh, and 
the Pictionary Tournament, among others. 

"We have a good crew," Bill Halloran, 
chairman of the board, said. "We've probably 
got the most energetic, self-motivated, cre- 
ative bunch of individuals on campus." 

All together, there are over 100 people on 
the AB. 

Halloran, mastermind behind last year's 
Cabbage Patch Doll Acapuico Cliff Dive and 
organizer of the All-.\ight Film Festivals, said 
that most of the ideas for activities come from 
random thinking. 

"If someone has an idea he thinks sounds 
like fun, and if he can get people behind it," 
Halloran said, "we usually do it." 

For other functions, such as concerts and 
comedians, Halloran said that the Board 
checks with the National Association for 
Campus Activities, agents and surveys they 
circulate around campus.

A-Phi-0 On The Go 


That's one word that could be 
used to describe Alpha E'hi Ome- 
ga during the 19H7-1988 academic 

Although it was a year of 
many highpoints, THE highpoint 
of the year had to be HOMKCOM- 
ING! For the first time in A-Phi- 
O's 28-year histoi'y, the fraternity 
was the proud creator of the 
first-place float in the Homecom- 
ing Parade. The float was "The 
Grinch that Stole Christmas," 
and its construction was a testa- 
ment to the friendship, coopera- 
tion and unity that exist within 
the brotherhood. 

As usual, the brotherhood be- 
gan each semester with its larg- 
est regular project— the Book Ex- 
change. At the exchange, 
students could buy or sell used 
books while the fraternity took a 
percentage markup of the price. 
The fall book exchange alone 
raised approximately ■$3,500. 

Although the book exchange 
may be A-Phi-0's most famous 
service project, it is by far not the 
fraternity's only one. This year 

the brotherhood also participated 
in several Red Cross blood drives, 
the Visitors-to-the-.'\ged program 
and the Love Basket program. A- 
Phi-0 also sponsored a hayride 
for Big Brothers and Big Sisters 
of Indiana County. 

The fraternity gave nearly 
.$1,000 to such organizations as 
the American Diabetes .Associa- 
tion, the .Newman Center and the 
Well-Baby Clinic. 

Once again this year, A-Phi-0 
proved that service doesn't have 
to be antisocial. The at 
1162 Water St. became the unoffi- 
cial fraternity "party house." The 
spring and fall formals were the 
social highlights of the year. The 
social schedule was also filled 
with such activities as all-night 
bowling, a spaghetti dinner and 
horseback riding. 

Partaking in all this fun were 
nearly .50 new brothers. This has 
brought the brotherhood back to 
nearly 100 members, and makes 
A-Phi-0 the largest fraternal or- 
ganization at IL'P. .And that's

student voice to faculty and 

SGA holds six or seven meet- 
ings a semester. During those 
meetings, bills are passed regard- 
ing policies on student and facul- 
ty affairs. It also provides ser- 
vices and programs to the entire 
university community. Included 
in those activities are the Red 
Cross Blood Drive, Homecoming 
elections and general elections 
for the Student Senate Associa- 
tion, junior and senior class of- 
fices. Commonwealth Association 

of Students. SGA and Student

Journalists Make 

The lUP chapter of the Society 
of Professional Journalists/ 
Sigma Delta Chi was established 
in 1980 to benefit students work- 
ing toward a career in the media. 

The 35-plus local members par- 
ticipate in a variety of activities, 
and each local member has the 
opportunity to become part of the 
national professional fraternity. 

Perhaps one of the most re- 
warding aspects of membership 
in the lUP chapter is the opportu- 
nity to participate in the 
student/mentor program with 
the Pittsburgh professional chap- 
ter. Through this program, stu- 
dents become acquainted with a 
professional in the field, visit 
their place of employment and 
receive valuable advice and 

"1 feel one of the biggest bene- 
fits of being a SPJ/SDX member 
is the opportunity to make many 
contacts," lUP chapter president 
Jane Miller said. "As a college 
student, that's one of the most 

important things he or she should 
have as a priority during his col- 
lege career." 

This year the chapter hosted 
numerous professional journal- 
ists as speakers, participated in a 
3-part journalism symposium and 
sponsored a journalism 

SPJ/SDX was founded in 1909 
at DePau.x University in Green- 
castle, Ind., to ensure freedom of 
information to the public, main- 
tain high ethical standards with- 
in the profession and recognize 
outstanding achievement by jour- 
nalists through various awards 
and scholarships.

lUP's Panhellenic Council is an 
affiliate of the National Panhel- 
lenic Council, an association of 26 
sororities in the United Sates and 

The council, consisting of an 
executive board and two repre- 
sentatives from each of lUP's 14 
sororities, is the governing body 
for the approximately 700 soror- 
ity sisters on campus, according 
to Greek Affairs Director Terry 
Appolonia. The council acts as a 
mediator and imposes sanctions 
when rules are broken. 

"People on campus don't real- 
ize that Panhel itself isn't social," 
Panhellenic Council President 
Melanie Nestor said. "It's defi- 
nitely a governing body." 

In addition to governing, the 
council's main effort is formal so- 
rority rush, according to Appo- 
lonia. Rushees go to parties at 
every sorority and are provided 
with rush counselors who are al- 
ready members of sororities. 

The council also sponsors edu- 
cational programs for sisters and 
pledges. Nestor said that the 
women's issues awareness pro- 
gram is new this year. It features 
speakers on law and liability, ac- 
quaintance rape and other perti- 
nent topics. 

The council also sponsors a se- 
ries of programs required for 
pledges. The programs are de- 
signed to educate the pledges 
about the sorority system. 

Nestor said that the Panhel- 
lenic Council will work this year 
with its fraternity counterpart, 
the Interfraternity Council, to 
sponsor a drug and alcohol 
awareness week. There will be 
three days of programming fea-

The Concert Dance Co. was

and female, who spend anywhere 
from 10 to 30 hours a week in the

"It helps you tone your body, 
but the social aspects are good 
too," dancer Julie Sypult said. 

The physical aspects of the 
workout and satisfaction gained 
by performance are offset by the 
organization's social aspect. The 
group holds a formal each year 
and attends fraternity mixers. 

Academics are stressed 
through a memorial scholarship 
offered each year to a sophomore 
concert dancer.

AERho Has' A 
Winning Year 

Alpha Epsilon Rho (AERho) is 
the honorary broadcasting soci- 
ety at lUP. Membership is open to 
ail communication media majors 
and minors who have at least a 
3.0 QPA in the major and a 2.5 
overall. Gail Wilson advises the 

This AERho has its largest 
membership ever. After five 
years at lUP, AERho now has 55 
members. The group has raised 
more funds and is sending more 
delegates to its conventions than 
ever before. 

Their activities include field 
trips such as the one scheduled to 
WTAE during the spring 1988 se- 
mester. They also attend the re- 
gional and national conventions. 
This year's national convention is 
being held in Brockport, N.Y., and 
AERho is planning to send about 
20 delegates— enough to give 
them the largest delegation 


AERho won the production 
awards competition. They sub- 
mitted the most program/news- 
cast tapes to win this honor. 

Each spring AERho sponsors 
what they call the "Spring 
Fling." It is somewhat of a com- 
munications media formal, and 
all communications media stu- 
dents and faculty are invited. 
Last fall, they co-sponsored a Fall 
Hoedown with WIUP-FM and 
WIUP-TV, and informal dinner 
dance with a Western theme. 

AERho also holds fundraisers 
and all proceeds go to their na- 
tional philanthropy, Tourettes 
Syndrome, which is a neurologi- 
cal speech disorder.

WIUP-TV "Channels" 
Energy Into Telethon 

\VIL'P-T\' experienced perhaps 
its most exciting and productive 
year in 1987-88, 

WIUP-TV is primarily a stu- 
dent-operated station on Cable 
Channel 9 and has approximately 
100 members. The station serves 
the Indiana community and the 
lUP campus with locally-pro- 
duced programs as well as XCTV 

One of the most exciting as- 
pects is the station's new faculty 
coordinatoi-, Dr. Jay Start. Di-. 
Start, with the aid of station 
manager Jim Kapustik and pro- 
gram director Meg Shuey, helped 
motivate a fairly young manage- 
ment staff in effectively organiz- 
ing general members. 

The most time-consuming 
event of the year was WR'P-TV's 
1987 Christmas Telethon to bene- 
fit the Salvation Arriiv of Indiana 

County. The telethon, broadcast 
tape-delay from the Indiana Mall 
and coordinated by Bruce Huff- 
man, raised over $1,00(1. The 
Commonwealth of F^nnsylvania 
awarded the station a Citation of 
Recognition for its efforts. 

Other activities included 
Homecoming 1987 in which 
\V11P-T\' helped sponsor- Home- 
coming Queen Kunner-L'p Anne- 
marie Agnew. Wll'P-TV traveled 
to Clarion University to observe 
its television operations. 

During spring r-egistration, the 
station undertook a new project. 
Each hour all closed class sec- 
tions were aired. 

"The knowledge I've gained at 
\V1UP-T\' is comparable to noth- 
ing else I've done in my life." 
member Michele Howell said.

Food Service Majors 
"Serve" As Waiters 

lUP's Food Service and Lodg- 
ing Club works to bring food ser- 
vice majors in contact with pro- 
fessionals from many facets of 
the industry, to foster a profes- 
sional attitude within the hospi- 
tality industry and to prepare 
students for employment. 

"We want to give students a 
more realistic view of the indus- 
try by providing them with guest 
speakers and tours," club presi- 
dent Karen Bauer said. 

To do this, the Food Service 
and Lodging Club provided its 70 
members with hands-on experi- 
ence, demonstrations and tours. 
Club members had the opportuni- 
ty to work as waiters and wait- 
resses, to lun a food booth during 
Homecoming and to tour the \"is- 
ta International Hotel, 

The club also sponsored a chil- 

dren's benefit dinnei' in Indiana's 
Chevy Chase section. 

With the help of Iris Holtz of 
the Chevy Chase Community Cen- 
ter, the club provided a spaghetti 
dinner for about 50 children of 
the Chevy Chase area. 

"It was really nice. The chil- 
dren really enjoyed it," Bauer 

"I was very impressed." Holtz 
said. "This group was very well 
organized. The presents they 
gave the children were well- 
thought-out also."

The lUP Fashion Group was 
formed three years ago and has 
grown to include TO memheis. 

The club helps consumer ser- 
vices department students devel- 
op fashion knowledge and leader- 
ship skills. 

"The idea for the lUP Fashion 

Doug Matvk 

Group was inspired by the origi- 
nal Fashion Group based in New 
York," ['resident I'etrina DeN'illo 

Guest speakers, fundraisers, 
fashion shows and a formal are 
all part of the group's activities 
this year. The H'P Fashion Group 
has coordinated shows foi' both 
Regency and Indiana malls, the 
1987 Homecoming alumni and the 
university. This year's theme was 
"Colors Gone Wild." 

Vice President Leslie Novak 
said: "These fashion shows help 
fashion merchandising and inte- 
rior designs majors learn how to 
put together a professional fash-

Psychology Club 
Hosts Speakers 

The psychology club was 
founded at'lUP in 1964. The club 
was founded three years prior to 
the formation of the psychology 
department. The advisers of the 
club include Dr. Gary Patton, Dr. 
Donald Robertson and Dr. Gordon 

The psychology club is in- 
volved with the Mental Health 
Association of Indiana. The mem- 
bers of the club help this organi- 
zation recruit volunteers to work 
with them. 

One of the activities the psy- 
chology club will be involved in 
this year is helping to collect toys 
for children at the Indiana Guid- 
ance Center to be used in play 
therapy in the fall. The club is 
also helping to sponsor a speaker 
for the spring semester. June 
Reinisch, the director from the 

Kinsey Institute, will speak at 
lUP in -April. Also in April, the 
members of the club will be trav- 
eling to Buffalo, N.Y., ta attend 
the Eastern Psychological Associ- 
ation conference. 

The psychology club is open to 
all students at IL'P. Members 
need not be a psychology major 
or minor to join. The club works 
closely with Psi Chi, the honorary 
society for psychology. The two 
groups work together to develop 
the interests of all students who 
are involved in any with

Dietetics Group Provides Nutrition Information 

The Student Dietetic Associa- 
tion (SDA) at lUP, which comes 
under the auspice of the Pennsyl- 
vania Dietetic Association 
(PADA), pi'ovides opportunities 
to develop in the dietetics profes- 
sion and nutrition services for 
the Indiana communitv. 

The active 95-student associa- 
ton "provides various activities 
for the community and students." 
Donna Cauffiel, SDA advisor, 

SDA helps the Diabetes Associ- 
ation, the annual health fair at 
the Indiana Mall, and at blood 

mobiles. The gioup also provides 
nutrition information for custom- 
ers at grocery stoies. 

SDA has benefitted students in 
the dietetics field since 1975, ac- 
cording to Cauffiel. 

"It has helped the individual 
student. It has given them a bet- 

ter perspective of the field, as 
well as providing contacts and 
summer internships and has also 
helped impiove students' creden- 
tials," Cauffiel said.

SSA Works 
To Improve 
lUP Policies 

Students at lUP gained admis- 
sion to the Student Senate Associ- 
ation in 1972, and in 1985, SSA 
became recognized as an organi- 
zation at I UP. Headed by Marc 
Brown, the SSA is still an integral 
part of the campus life. 

In the past year, SSA support- 
ed the lUP Rugby Team in its 
search for field space. When the 
Black Student League opposed a 
new policy regaiding the recog- 
nizing of organizations, the SSA 
stepped in and lobbied on their 
behalf, and eventually the law 
was repealed. The SSA was also 
involved in piojects involving 
grade appeals and liberal studies; 
they were responsible for the cre- 
ation of a class syllabus policy at 
lUP. In addition, the SSA and the 
Student Government Association 
jointly submitted to the adminis- 
tration suggestions on how to im- 
prove the drop-add piocess. 

The SSA is one of only two 
parts of the University system by 
which students, by their vote, 
have a say in what goes on in the 
University. For the first time, 
this year the USA held theii' own 
election under Michelle Angello, 
Chair of the election committee. 

One advantage of being in- 
volved with the SSA is being able 

to interact with administrators. 

According to Vice President 
Corinne Carey: "When you're a 
university senator, you have the 
privilege of speaking one-on-one 
with various administrators." 

Carey is concerned about the 
lack of student involvement in 
making changes at lUP. 

"Students are missing out on a 
golden opportunity," Carey said. 
"If they were activated now like 
students were in the 60s, a lot 
more would get done."

SMA Makes Contacts

The Student Marketing Associ- 
ation (SMA), a cfiapter of the 
American Marketing Association 
(AMA), helps students develop 
professional marketing, advertis- 
ing and sales experience, accord- 
ing to the S.MA adviser. 

"S.MA has programs in areas 
such as speakers, career fairs 
and professional-social get-to- 
gethers," Krish Krishnan said. 
"We attend national and interna- 
tional marketing conferences 
where marketing students from 
ail over the world share ideas 
and experiences." 

Once a month, SM.A members, 
who are in excess of 100 people 
and still growing, have a chance 
to attend a program, "Network 

Nights," in Pittsburgh. 

Various speakers tell the stu- 
dents what the "real world" of 
marketing is like and what job 
opportunities exist, Krishnan 

This program provides many 
contacts for students which will 
aid in their job search after

Players Hit 
The Ice 

When the snow begins to fall 
at lUP, it is not unusual to find 
Ken Barkman or Dan Powell 
sharpening their ice skates for 
the beginning of the ice hockey 

The team, lead by coach John 
Layden. plays its usual 14-ganie 
season at the Belmont Arena lo- 
cated in Kittanning. 

With last year's record of sev- 
en wins, five losses and one tied 
game. Ken Barkman feels quite 
optimistic for the 87-88 season. 

"We'll definitely be in the 
play-offs. The best teams are 
lUP. Gannon, and Pitt." Barkman 

This year the team gained out- 
standing freshmen Eric .\mbler. 
Chris Moore and Craig Chalot to 
join junior starters Rob Carey 
and Chris Brown and senior 
starter Chiis Lazaroff. The play- 

ers feel that college ice hockey is 
more challenging than profes- 
sional hockey because they have 
to balance school work with the 
desire to hit the ice, but co-presi- 
dents Chris Brown and Ken Bark- 
man agree that the e.xcitement of 
the game is definitely worth the

Swimmers Perform 

"I can't believe I'm doing it.

Alain McGoun, a junior, was 
talking about synchronized swim- 
ming. .\ member of ITPisces, 
lUP's synchronized swim club, 
McGoun got involved in the sport 
through a gym class and then be- 
came interested in the club. 

Michelle Bright, lUPisces's 
treasurer, has had more experi- 
ence. She has been swimming 
since 7th grade and belonged to 
her high school synchronized 
swim club. 

"I Just went up one night and 
have been swimming ever since," 
she said. 

lUPisces is now in its 11th 
year at lUP. The club has been 
competing for three years. 

1987 was a good year for the 
group. It sent si.x members to na- 
tional competition at Ohio State 
University in March. lUP was 
ranked ninth overall and one trio 
was ranked seventh in the 

lUPisces's annual show was

performances were given. The

Despite Chaos, The Penn Produces 

From the outside, it looks like 
total confusion. On the inside, it 
is chaos. 

But somehow everything 
comes together, and every Mon- 
day, Wednesday and Friday, stu- 
dents all over campus can be seen 
reading The Penn, Il'P's student 

The Penn is staffed by over 
100 students who are managed by 
one full-time professional. 

This year— on the 60th anni- 
versary of the publication— one 
small technicality arose: Jim 
Devlin, who for four years acted 
as director of student publica- 
tions, moved on to another job. 
The students were left to fend for 

From the end of August to the 
middle of October, the heads of 
the business, advertising and pro- 
duction departments were run- 
ning the office. Many complained 
that they were inefficient, inex- 
perienced and simply, incapable. 
Regardless, three days a week— 
maybe not always on schedule— 
the paper was on the streets. 

On October 4, the new director 
stepped into her office, sat down 
at her desk and went to work. 
The pressure was on— there was 
so much to learn in so little time. 

Slowly, Debra Dursi began to 
get a feel for the office atmo- 
sphere. A few extra hours of 
work here and there, and things 
finally began to fall back into 

Jane Miller and Sidra Walker, 

the fall and spring advertising 
managers, respectively, began in- 
troducing Dursi to the world of 
Penn advertising. Dursi met peo- 
ple from the laiger businesses in 
the area and became familiar 
with the established policies. 

Quynh Luong, who held the po- 
sition of business manager during 
the fall semester, helped Dursi 
study the monetary aspect. Mar- 
co Vietti took over Luong's posi- 
tion in the spring, and together 
he and Dursi put their efforts to- 
ward keeping The Penn financial- 
ly stable. 

Production Manager Gayle 
Schmidt was in charge of teach- 
ing Dursi about the complexity of 
the office's many computer sys- 
tems, including anything from 
how to turn on the machine to 
major problem-solving. 

In a matter of months, things 
were finally back to normal— or 
as normal as they would ever be 
in the office of The Penn. But 
things are never really normal 

Between the hours of 9 and 11 
a.m., there are a few stragglers, 
but mainly all that can be found 
is a secretary taking a minimum 
amount of phone calls and taking 
care of general office duties. 

Around noon the pace picks 

Monday, Wednesday and Fri- 
day afternoons are ad production 
days. The seven advertising rep- 
resentatives are hard at work on 
the phones and the streets trying 

to fill advertising space. Once 
they sell the ad, it's time to head 
back to the office and put the 
production staff to work. 

Tuesday, Thursday and Sun- 
day afternoons don't actually 
pick up until after 5 p.m. Then 
it's time for the invasion of the 
editorial staff The fight for a 

compute!- terminal is on. 

This late-night shift can run 
any time between midnight and 5 
a.m. when the paper is scheduled 
to be shipped to Gateway printers 
in Monroeville. 

How do people pass the time 
and keep their sanity at that time 
in the morning? Sports. Office

The Penn staff members are

ey League and the Indiana Base- 
ball League, along with many 
other sport variations. Most of 
these are played with a stuffed 
pumpkin and a ruler at any time 
of the day. 

When the Hadley I'nion Build- 
ing received a bomb threat and 

the building had to be evacuated, 
at 7 the following morning the 
editorial staff filed back into the 
building to work steadily for the 
ne.xt five hours to get The Penn 

out by dinner time. 

Since then, the paper has tak- 
en much abuse and has received 
much praise. Some format 
changes here and there and a dif- 

ferent look at the world through 
the eyes of Editor-in-Chief James 
Kubus and his successor Tim 
Maher take the credit. 

But through all the conflict 
and the controversy, three days a 
week one familiar question can 
be heard: "Did The Penn come 
out yet?"

The Penn 


Oak Staff Spends 
"A Year In Motion 


After much investigation and 
consideration, this is the official 
77th volume of the OAK. The lUP 
yearbook was started in 1912 and 
was called the Instano. The name 
was changed to the OAK in 1928. 
Volume numbers came and went 
throughout the years; but, with 
the help of Phil Zorich from Uni- 
versity Archives, we have 
learned this is undoubtedly Vol- 
ume 77. 

This year's OAK typified the 
theme, "A Year in Motion." Af- 
fectionately termed "A Year of 
Crises" by some staff members, 
this book went through many 
changes, both externally and in- 
ternally. We saw the departure of 
OAK adviser Jim Devlin and re- 
mained adviser-less for over a 
month until Debra Dursi joined 
the ranks. Changes among the 
staff were many, and sometimes 

it seemed there was never a dull 
moment in the new OAK office in 
the HIB. 

We sometimes wondered how 
we managed to produce anything 
after all of the staff changes, sti- 
pend cuts and never-ending lack 
of candids: but the Iti-member 
editorial staff braved through the 
hardships and produced one of 
the best books ever at IL'P. 

This year's book also had some 
physical changes. More color was 
added, the academics section be- 
came once again geared toward 
students, and a contest was held 
for the OAK cover. 

"A Year in Motion" it definite- 
ly was, and we hope your college 
experience will be captured with- 
in the pages of the 1988 OAK.

Office Group Focuses 
On Business World 

Office Administration is a busi- 
ness field that has existed for 
about 10 years. 

The Office Administration 
Club was established by the busi- 
ness faculty six years ago so stu- 
dents could meet people in the 
field, gain first-hand information 
about the business world and 
make outside contacts. Members 
receive these benefits from meet- 
ings, field trips and invited 

Dr. Sharon Steigman, a busi- 
ness faculty member, helped es- 
tablish the club, and one year 
after its origination in 1981, she 
became the adviser. She still 
holds the position and enjoys 
working with the students. Dur- 
ing meetings she supplies the 
group with information about 
possible field trips or speakers, 
and new developments in the 
business world. By presenting 
general information and making 

suggestions. Dr. Steigmann al- 
lows the officers and the other 
members to make the actual 

Field trips benefit members by 
providing them with actual office 
settings, modern technology and 
office procedures. In spring 1987, 
the students visited the IB.Vl 
branch office in Pittsburgh. Dur- 
ing spring 1988, they plan to visit 
Westinghouse and West Penn 

In addition to field trips, the 
club scheduled two speakers for 
spring 1988. The lectures provide 
specific information about the 
business world and enable stu- 
dents to interact with the speak- 
ers on a one-to-one basis.

KOPhis Teach 
Local Adults 

Kappa Omicron Phi (KOPhi), a home eco- 
nomics organization, was created to empha- 
size high ideals and a deep appreciation of the 

KOPhi's Tau chapter at IL'P was chartered 
May 1, 1940. Membership is based on scholar- 
ship and personality. 

"The KOPhi responsibilities of membership 
are to further the interests of our career goals 
and to provide a better relationship between 
faculty and students," KOPhi President Irish 
Tatarzvn said. 

Joy Koob 

KOPhi members must be enrolled in the 
College of Home Economics with a major in 
interior design, hotel management, dietetics, 
nutrition, fashion merchandising, or consum- 
er affairs. 

Several members attended the Kappa Omi- 
cron Phi Regionals in Huntingdon, W. Va., Oct. 
30-31, 1987. Seminars were conducted about 
time management, stress management, the 
organizational crest and other topics. 

"Teach and Adult to Read" was the KOPhi 
1987 community project. KOPhi members, in 
conjunction with the .■\dult Literature Pro- 

gram and the Indiana Library, volunteered 
time to assist Indiana adults who are learning 
to read. 

KOPhi chose "Commitment to Writing" as 
its 1987-88 school year theme. Home econom- 
ics department staff spoke to the chapter 
members about writing term papers and tech- 
nical writing.

RHA Improves 

The Residence Hall Association 
(RHA) was founded in 1972. 

RHA lets students program ac- 
tivities and gives them a voice in 
the building policies they would 
like implemented in their resi- 
dence hall and on campus. 

Campus and building officers 
meet to work on such projects as 
this year's December Beach Par- 
ty with the Activities Board, a 
haunted house to benefit the Al- 
ice Paul House and UNICEF, and 
special delivery fruit baskets. 

The North Atlantic Affiliate of 
Colleges' and Universities' Resi- 
dence Halls Conference was held 
the weekend of Oct. 23, 1987, at 
Syracuse University. "Surfin' in 
the Snow" was the theme.

The Institite of Business De-

through another year, highlight- 
ed by field trips, a fashion show, 
and fundraisers. 

In both October and March, 
the club went on field trips to 
Steelcast to tour the furniture 
showroom office. Also, in Octo- 
ber. IBD. in conjuction with the 
lUP fashion group, put on a fash- 
ion show in the HUB. Fundraisers 
included hoagie sales, donut 
sales, and filling out credit card 

IBD's fundraisers also helped 
to sponsor several guest speakers, 
including a panel discussion 
where four speakers including 
two professional designers from 
Pittsburgh, one architect and one 
manufacturing representative for 
a contract carpeting company. 
came to Ackerman Hall to talk to 

students and answer their

no oiganizt'ii giiiup exists for one 
of your favorite activities, 
chances are the potential group is

some organizations develop is he-

The Indiana Grapplers Club 
was founded in Spring 1987 by 
Ward Allebach and Ron Gross. 

"The wrestling team was cut 

by lUP," .Allebach .said. "Since 
wrestling is one of the most popu- 
lar sports and Pennsylvania is 
the most competitive state on the 
East Coast for wrestling, I knew 
there were people who wanted to 
wrestle. I know I did." 

Twenty-nine people signed up 
for the group. That spring the 
Grapplers elected officers and be- 
gan to draw up their constitution. 

All groups must compose a con- 
stitution and have it approved by 
the Student Government Associa- 
tion and the Office of Student Ac- 
tivities & Organizations before 
being officially recognized as an 
lUP organization. 

"It took us a year to become 
recognized," Allebach said, "but 
foi' someone who has the time to 
organize things sufficiently, it 
would probably take 0-8 weeks." 

Debby Albert and Meg Shuey. 
co-founders of the U'P Women's 
Leadership Caucus, believe pub- 
licity is a problem. 

"Creating interest in the orga- 
nization is our biggest difficulty 
right now," .\lbert said. 

The Women's Caucus at lUP 
was inspired by a similar group 
at the University of Florida. 

"Meg and I attended a national 
womens leadership conference in 
Washington, D.C., in June 

(1987)," Albert said. "The caucus 
sounded like something neat to 
have at U'P to help women lead- 
ers on campus and to build better 
relationships between

in September and submitted its 
constitution in April. Currently

The Greek community at IIP 
spent a year in motion trying 
to improve their image. The 22 fraterni- 
ties and 17 sororities spent a great deal 
of time raising money for their philan- 
thropies through such activities as Del- 
ta Gamma's Beautiful Eyes. Phi Delta 
Theta's baskethall-bouncing marathon. 


Sigma Chi> Derby Days, the .^SA 
Spring Kiclvoff and KDRsWalk to Pitts- 
burgh, just to name a few. 

In the midst of this activity. new- 
Greek organizations were being formed 
and working toward receiving their 
charters. Kappa Gamma sorority and Pi 
Kappa Phi fraternity had a busy year 
meeting the require- 
ments to begin a new 
Greek organization. 
Stricter regulations 
imposed last year by 
the university con- 
trolled much of the 
underage drinking 
which once took 
place at the fraterni- 
ties, and entry into 
parties became more 

difficult as brothers 

became more wary of 
fines by the LCB and possible loss of 
recognition by the university. 

Social activities certainly didn't suf- 
fer through all of this service-oriented 
activity. April's Greek Week and Greek 
Sing enabled the panicipants to break 
loose and compete while having fun. 
Greek Happy Hour became a Friday tra- 
dition, as did the usual mixers, date 
parties and formals. 

This year marked the first of the 
new sorority rush system, with infor- 
mal rush in the fall and formal rush in 
the spring. Fraternities also continued 
with their dry rush policy.

Greek System Fulfills 
Needs Of Students 

The Greek Life System is an integral part of lUP and of many 
students at the University. 

The system spans 73 years beginning in 1915 with the chartering 
of two national sororities. The first fraternity at lUP was founded 
in 1930. 

Since then, the 22 fraternities and 18 sororities, make up the 
largest greek community in the State System of Higher Education, 
with more than 1,800 members. 

There are two inter-fraternal organizations within lUP's Greek 
System: the Interfraternity Council for fraternities, and the Pan- 
hellenic Council for Sororities. Members of the different Greek 
Organizations make up the e.xecutive officers of the two groups. 
IFC president for the 1987-1988 academic year was Sigma Chi Dan 
NichoUs. President of Panhel was Delta Gamma Marta Braun in 
the fall, and Alpha Omicron Pi sister Melanie Nestor in the spring. 

According to Terry .\ppoIonia, assistant director of Greek Life, 
"The future of the system depends exclusively on its ability to 
fulfill legitimate needs, such as leadership outlet, a sense of belong- 
ing, and deinstitutionalizing an institutionalized atmosphere for 
students at the unversity." 

Appolonia believes that the Greek System offers students a 
chance to belong to something personalized, not just to a university 
of 13,000 students. 

"As a university, our primary product is the student. We have to 
produce, in four years, a well-rounded individual," Appolonia said. 

While developing that type of individual, ll'P greeks participated 
in numerous activities over the 1987-88 academic year, during 
which time they contributed more than 5,000 manhours and ap- 
proximately 830,000 toward charitable causes. 

Also during 1987-88 sororities changed traditional formal rush 
period from the fall to the spring. 

According to Kelly Carson, vice president of rush for the 1987-88 
academic year, "The main changes have only been with changing 
formal rush to the beginning of the spring semester." 

Carson added that there was a good reason foi' this change. 

"Better planning and more time to get the information out is the 
primary reason for the change. This way sororities can get informa- 
tion out to prospective rushees at the end of the fall semester. 
Then, those students have a chance to orientate themselves with 
campus and college life before they go through rush." 

Carson believes it will do the greek system a lot of good. 

"In general, these students will be better established on campus 
and comfortably settled in while making their contribution to our 
greek system."

working together for a common 
goal. Because of AGD, my college 
career holds many wonderful 
memories," said Justine Perzia,

DG Aids Blind 
With Anchor 

The Epsilon Eta chapter of 
Delta Gamma was founded at 
IL'P on March 21, 1981, and the 
chapter currently has 65 mem- 
bers, making it one of the largest 
sororities on campus. 

Each fall, the sisters of Delta 
Gamma hold the annual Anchor 
Clanker, a crazy contest between 
fraternity and sorority teams, to 
raise money for their philanthro- 
py, Aid to the Blind. In the 
spring, they sponsor the Beauti- 
ful Eyes contest. 

In addition to these activities. 
Delta Gamma also participates in 
Greek Week, Sigma Chi Derby 
Days, Alpha Gamma Delta's .Mr. 
lUP contest and homecoming. 

The Delta Gamma sisters also 
find time to be involved in stu- 
dent government, hall counseling, 
ROTC, and the Penn staff. 

Delta Gamma's colors are 
bronze, pink and blue, and their 
symbol is the anchor. Their flow- 
er is the cream rose, and their 
sweetheart is Phi Delta Theta 
brother Carl Halkyer. 

"I am very pleased to see how 
the Greek system as a whole has 
developed and I think that Delta 
Gamma has contributed largely 
to this growth," said DG Cathey

^ ASA Spring Kickoff Raises Money 

The Alpha Gamma chapter of 
Alpha Sinma Alpha sorority had 
two busy and productive semes- 
ters this year. 

With a meinbeiship of o4 sis- 
ter's, ASA devoted much time and 
energy into numei'ous social and 
contributory events on campus, 
many dealing with the sororities' 
philanthropy, Special Olympics. 

In the fall, ASA participated in 
Homecoming with Sigma Nu, and 
constructed a float with the 
theme "Ground Hog Day" for the 
parade. Over homecoming week- 

end, the sisteis and pledges treat- 
ed the paients and alumni to a 
tea in the ASA suite. 

The sisters displayed their ath- 
letic ability and placed second in 
Kappa Sigma's powderpuff foot- 
ball tournament. Socially, the sis- 
ters organized two successful 
date parties, a formal, and visited 
ASA sistei's at Penn State foi' a 

The spring semester proved to 
be the busiest time for Alpha Sig- 
ma Alpha. They organized their 
second annual Spring Kickoff 

fundraiser, in which all of the 
fraternities on campus partici- 
pated. Among the many activi- 
ties, the "Hot Bod" contest and 
various field events made the day 
a huge success. 

ASA's motto is Aspire, Seek, 
Attain. All members of ASA 
proved that they can achieve the 
spirit of their motto through the 
many activities and contributions 
to lUP and the community.

AXiD Undergoes 
Many Changes 

Alpha Xi Delta was founded as 
Omega Phi at ILT in 1962. The 
Delta Nu chapter was formed the 
following yeai- when the 0-Phis 
affiliated with Alpha Xi Delta 
and became a national fraternal 
organization. 1988 is the 25th an- 
niversary of the founding of the 
Delta Nu chapter. 

Over the last Tive years, Alpha 
Xi has undergone many changes. 
The improvements to the chapter 
have brought about more involve- 
ment and an increase in member- 
ship. There are currently over 40 
active sisters. 

In the fall of "87, AXiD has 
participated in several campus 
and Greek activities. To support 
their philanthropy, the .American 
Lung Association, Alpha Xi held 
their annual Mr. Lung Contest. 

Contestants were judged on their 
lung capacity, appearance, and 
amount of money raised. Jody 
Wireman, an Alpha Tau Omega 
brother, came away with the 

ATO Greg Primm, the AXiD 
sweetheart, won the AOPi Sweet- 
est Sweetheart contest. Other 
events the Alpha Xis have partic- 
ipated in include the DG Anchor 
Clanker, the Red Cross Blood 
drive, Phi Mus toy drive for 
needy children, and Theta Phi Al- 
pha clothing drive. 

Dark blue, light blue and gold 
are the colors of Alpha Xi Delta, 
and their flower is the pink rose. 
The teddy bear is their mascot, 
and their symbol is the quill.

Delta Zeta Promotes Unity 

lUP's chapter of Delta Zeta 
has been on campus since 1952. 
and currently has 65 members. 

The sisters of Delta Zeta par- 
ticipated in various events during 
the year, including Greek Week, 
powder puff football. Derby Days, 
and homecoming. Their float, 
which they created with Phi Del- 
ta Theta. won third place in the 
homecoming parade this year. 

Delta Zeta's philanthropy is 
Aid to the Hearing Impaired, and 

this year, the chapter sold ba- 
loons in order to raise money. 
Their colors are rose and green, 
and their flower is a calarny rose. 
Their symbol is a golden lamp 
and their mascot is a turtle. Dee 
Zees fall 1987 sweetheart was Phi 
Delt Tim Bukowski. who along 
with DZ Laurel Pagoda, were this 
year's Homecoming King and 

"Delta Zeta has worked hard 
to promote Greek unity and it's 

been very exciting tu be a part of 
the Greek system." said DZ mem- 
ber Tanya Lowes. 

"There has been an incredible 
amount of participation in the ac- 
tivities planned for Greeks than 
there has been in the past, and 
we're proud that we're right 
there to be able to join in the 




KG Formed This 
Year By Friends 

Kappa Gamma was founded 
February 10, 1987, on the lUP 
campus. There were sixteen 
founding sisters who wanted a 
way to express themselves, and 
they found one: They went greek. 

"It was a joint effort," says 
Kiersten Hartman, president of 
Kappa Gamma. She explained 
that at first it was a bunch of 
friends, but the group quickly de- 
veloped into a sorority. 

Kappa Gamma's activities in- 
clude Delta Gamma's Anchor 
Clanker, in which they took sec- 
ond place overall, the Beautiful 
Eyes contest, the Cutest Couple 
contest and Homecoming, where 
they placed seventh along with 
Theta Xi, Derby Days, Greek Sing 
with Alpha Chi Rho and Greek 

Kappa Gamma has benefited 
several philanthropies. March 21 

through 25 they raised almost 
$3200 for the National Arthritis 
Foundation. Phi Delta Theta and 
Kappa Gamma bounced a basket- 
ball for 100 hours straight. 

Kappa Gamma and Phi Sigma 
Kappa collected money on Phila- 
delphia Street and sold raffle 
tickets to raise about $1500 for 
the Ebensburg Retarded Citizens 

Kappa Gamma's colors are lav- 
ender and peacock and their 
flower is the lavender rose. They 
have two symbols, the white but- 
terfly and the koala bear. Al- 
though they have several mottos, 
Hartman said that the group 
stresses individuality. This is evi- 
dent in the way which Kappa 
Gamma started— friends wanting 
to express themselves as

The Gamma Xi Chapter had a full year of excitement and 
pi'ogi-ess during the 1987-88 school term. 

The year was kicked off by homecoming with the brotheis of 
Delta Sigma Phi. The sisters held an Alumni Tea homecoming 
morning, and giaduates from as early as the U)5(ls enteitained with 
stories of their Zeta Days. 

The fall semester included Founder's Day, Anchor Clanker, a 
hayride, and pledge formal at the Holiday Inn in Johnstown. The 
Fall highlight was ZTA's Orange Crush. Men on campus receive 
secret invitations to this traditional event. 

The spring semester began with a succe.ssful rush, with member- 
ship nearing 70 women. The sisters held their annual "Cutest 
Couple" contest to benefit the Association for Retarded Citizens. 
Zetas also participated in the Phi Psi dance marathon, which 
prepared them for the long Greek Sing practice hours with Sigma 

Greek Week activities included many hours including awards for 
volleyball, billiards, and Jeopardy. Sigma Chi Derby Days ended the 
competitions for the yeai'. 

Other social events included a date pary and the annual Senior 
Banquet, where younger sisters roast the giaduating members. 
Completing the spiing calendar was a spectacular formal at the 

Although the sisters are a diverse group and outside activities 
range from cheerleading to student government, they hold the 
common bond of friendship. The similarities run much deeper than 
the visual display of their turquoise and giey letters. 

"Zeta Tau Alpha has been a pait of my life since freshman year, 
I could not imagine what college would have been like without it. I 
know when I look back upon the past years my fondest memories 
will be of ZTA," said graduating senior Susan Jenkins.

ILP's chapter of Sigma Chi has 
long been committed to raising 
money for philanthiopies. 

And this year, as in previous 
years, the fraternity kept up 
their tradition. 

The chapter, founded on cam- 
pus in 1973, collected canned 
goods in the fall for a Thanksgiv- 
ing drive to provide for those who 
might not be able to have a holi- 
day meal. 

Perhaps the most well-known 
event of the Sigma Chi is its an- 
nual Derby Days each spring, in 
which soroiities compete to find 
the "Golden Derby," while rais-

Theta Chi Stresses 
Brother Relations 

Theta Chi fraternity strived to 
increase the bonds within the 
brotherhood this yar. 

"We've been stressing inter- 
brother relations," said Theta Chi 
secretary Chet Kerr. 

"You've got to be able to ques- 
tion each other," Kerr said, and 
added that within a 60-member 
organization, communication is 
very important. 

Kerr said this has strength- 
ened the brotherhood, along with 
more activities as a fraternity. 
One of these activities included a 
24-hour volleyball marathon to 
raise money for charity, which 

the brothers held in April with 
Sigma Kappa sorority. 

The lUP chapter of Theta Chi 
was founded in 1957, and its 
members take pride in actively 
participating in their organiza- 
tion as well as outside activities 
such as SGA and various student 
government committees. 

Theta Chis also participated in 
the usual spring Greek activities 
including Greek Week and Greek 
Sing, and welcomed alumni dur- 
ing the fall Homecoming

Dirty Dancing In 
Memoral Field 

Greek Sing, the granddaddy 
event of greek week, was fun 
for all. 

Held in the Memorial Field 
House on April 10, Greek Sing 
was a chance for sororities and 
fraternities to show^ theii- sing- 
ing and dancing talents as well 
as promote greek unity. 

This year's winners were 
Theta Phi Alpha and Theta Chi, 
who performed an upbeat, styl- 
ish dirty dance routine to "I've 
Had the Time of .'Vly Life" and 
"Do You Love Me," from the hit 
movie Dirty Dancing. Second 
runner-up was Alpha Gamma 
Delta and Phi Delta Theta tor 
their rendition of the Olympic 
ceremonies. Finally, tied for- 
third were baby boomers Alpha 
Tau Omega/Alpha Xi Delta and 
Alpha Sigma Alpha/Phi Sigma 
Kappa who danced to themes 

from the musical "Grease." 

"All the time and work we 
put into it was all worth it when 
they announced us as winning 
first place," said Theta Phi Al- 
pha Dirty Dancer Jennifer 
Tasca, who said the two groups 
pr'acticed every night for hour-s 
for- about three weeks befor-e 
the big day. 

Newcomers to lUP's Greek 
System Pi Kappa Phi and Kappa 
Gamma were welcomed to 
Gr-eek Sing by their competitors 
as well as the crowd. 

Approximately 30 sororities 
and fraternities performed in 
fr-ont of a mostly-Greek cr-owd 
of over 1000 people. The enthu- 
siasm of the spectators encour- 
aged the participants to do their 
best and have a great time.

Greek Week 


The week of April lO-HJ was 
dedicated t(i 111' Greeks in the 
form of Greek Week. 

A host of games, activities 
and events, Greek Week brings 
together :)n sororities and fra- 
ternities for one special cause, 
the United Way. This year's 
Greek Week philanthropy, the 
Indiana United Way Chapter 
was given $2000 from IL'H's so- 
rorities and fraternities from 
the sale of Greek Week T-shirts, 
sponsored by Dominos. 

The week kicked off with the 
song and dance celebration, 
Greek Sing. Sororities and fra- 
ternities pair up to perform a 
variety of dancing acts. This 
year's winners were Theta Phi 
Alpha and Theta Chi, who per- 
formed a remake from the 
"Dirty Dancing" soundtrack. 

This event gave way to a se- 
ries of daily events. Ranging 
from Greek Jeopardy to Greek 
gorge, an eating contest, Greek 
organizations took part in many 
activities including banner con- 
tests, volleyball, racquetball, a 
pledge-plus enrichment series, 
miniature golf, pyramid build- 
ing, arcade games, scavenger 

hunts, and field day, a variety 
of games and relay races. 

.Mthough sororities and fra- 
ternities won different events, 
only one took top honors. The 
winning fraternity was Tau 
Kappa Epsilon and the sorority 
was Theta Phi Alpha. 

Although Greek Week is a se- 
ries of fun and games, it is tak- 
en very seriously by Greek 

The first annual awards ban- 
quet took place on .April 19. 
Chapter and individual awards 
and certificates were given to 
deserving fraternities and so- 
rorities, their members and ad- 
visors, for a job well done. 

The purpose of Greek Week is 
to promote interaction between 
Greek organizations, an attempt 
at fundraising for charitable or- 
ganizations and visibility of the 
Greek system, according to Ter- 
rv Appolonia, director of Grek 

"I think it's great that so 
many people can come together 
for one cause and have fun do- 
ing it," Appolonia said.

It finally arrived. Our senior 
year was here, the year we 
could relax, enjoy ourselves, and build 
those last few precious memories which 
we'd carry with us throughout our 
lives. Or so we thought. As seniors, we 
found ourselves in motion more than 
ever before; between preparing re- 
sumes, applying and interviewing for 

Seniors t 






jobs, cramming in those last-minute 
credits we needed to graduate, and pre- 
paring mentally and physically for life 
beyond college, we found there wasn't 
much time to relax at all. But somehow 
we managed to squeeze some fun in 
As seniors, we had the 
_ privileges which we 
thought made us su- 
perior to the rest of 
the "juvenile" under- 
class population. We 
got to schedule first 
(after the athletes), 
we could work our 
way into any class 
we needed ("but I 
need it to graduate . . 
. "), we could get in 
.^__^_^^_ uptown legally, and 
above all, we just 
had that senior attitude. Of course, by 
mid-semester in the fall, "that senior 
attitude" became better known as sen- 
ioritis, something which we probably 
haven't felt since high school. We still 
had the advantages of a senior, but our 
mental capacity began swiftly shrivel- 
ling into, "Hey, I'm a senior. I deserve to 
go out and have fun . . . it's my last 
semester." And so it went throughout 
the spring semester. As the weather 
turned warmer, that senior affliction 
became even more terminal, and before 
we knew it, we were receiveing the 
"You have been tentatively approved 
for graduation" letters, information 
about our caps and gowns, and the 
ever-welcomed rejection letters. Al- 
though it may not have been before 
graduation, eventually that long await- 
ed acceptance letter did arrive, and we 
had to say goodbye to our last case of 
senioritis and our university where we 
spent "The Best Years of Our Lives."

Awareness Key To Senior Fund Drive 

Thf senidi^ woikinj; on the Se- 
nior Fund Diive for the Class of 
1988 tried a new approach for 
their annual fund-raising effort: 

"One of the major problems 
we've had in the past has been 
that the seniors just didn't know 
about the drive," Kelley Cibulas, 
the drive's co-chairman said. 

The approach that Kelley and 
co-chair/senior class president 
Dave Wolczko chose for the 1988 
drive attempted to contact more 
seniors directly. This was done 
under a new system which broke 
down the solicitation effort and 
involved more seniors. 

The two co-chairs appointed 
six seniors to be leaders for each 
of the university's six colleges. 
These leaders also appointed 
leaders under them to encourage 
seniors in each department to 
help with the drive. 

Kelley, Dave, the six college 
leaders and drive treasurer Grey 
Nanney made up the executive 
cabinet which met weekly during 

the spring semester to help plan 
promotional events, such as the 
senior reception held March 24 in 
the Blue Room, and to discuss 
how the solicitation methods 
were working. 

For next year's drive, and all 
future Senior Fund Drives, it is 
hoped that the class president 
can use the same setup but can 
start earlier in the year. 

Dave said: "It's the senior class 
president's responsibility to help 
make the drive a success, and the 
earlier he gets the drive going, 
the more seniors will become 
aware of it and want to 

In the past, efforts for the Se- 
nior Fund Drive have been last- 
minute attempts directed at the 
senior class in general. Hopefully, 
the system developed by the 
Class of 1988 will be the ground- 
work for future classes to use and 
build upon for future successes.

How To Be A "Perfect" Graduate! 


Doug Macek 

Doug Mdcek 

Way to go— for those students 
graduating with a 4.0! 

Karen Bodnar, 22, is one of 
those students. 

Karen, an elementary educa- 
tion major with a concentration 
in mathematics, wori<ed hard to 
achieve her peifect QPA. 

"Things didn't come easy to 
me; I had to study just as hard as 
everyone else," she said. 

Karen spent most of her fresh- 
man year in the library. However, 
as the semesters went by, she 
learned better study habits and 
was able to ease up on the library 
time a little bit. 

Although Karen still spends 
much of her time studying to 
keep up her grades, she also 
makes time foi' hei- hobbies and 

Karen belongs to Kappa Delta 
Pi, an honoiary education frater- 
nity, and was a member of the 
Association for Childhood Educa- 
tion International for three 

Theresa Prowell, 21, is another 
4.0 graduate. 

Theresa, a psychology major 
with a minoi' in applied statistics, 
says she enjoys learning which in 
turn makes it easy to study. 

"Some people may think you 
have to study hard to achieve a 
4.0, but for me studying came 
easily," she said honestly. 

Theresa says she studies for 
about three hours each evening 
and also studies a little in the 
mornings and on the weekends. 
She says she gets bored with 
studying unless she has the radio 
or the television on in the 

"From my study habits, my 
friends really would never know 
that I have a 4.0," she said. "I 
just study to do the best I can, not 
to be the best." 

Theresa, does a lot more than 
study, however. She works at the 


Karen also enjoys playing the 
guitar. She has been playing 
since she was two years old. 

"I play mostly for my own en- 
joyment, but sometimes I play for 
my friends," Karen said. 

She says she really values the 
friendships she has made here at 

"Next to my education, my 
friends are the most important 
thing to me," she said. 

Karen spent her last semester 
at lUP doing her student teaching 
in the second grade at the Uni- 
versity School. Karen taught 
math, history, science and 

After leaving lUP, Karen 
hopes to pursue her teaching ca- 
reer in .Maryland. 

Good luck, Karen, and congrat- 
ulations. You've made quite an

cafeteria; is a member of Campus 
Crusade for Christ; is vice presi- 
dent of Psi Chi, the honorary psy- 
chology society; and does volun- 
teer work at Grace United 
!^ethodist Church. 

Theresa transferred to lUP 
from Messiah College in the fall 
of 1986 for financial reasons. She 
says lUP took a little getting used 
to because the students here are 
quite different from the ones at 
Messiah. She says they're a lot 
nicer here. 

After graduation, Theresa 
plans to move to North Dakota 
and find work in the area of hu- 
man services. 

She says that she is drawn to 
that field because she is a "peo- 
ple person." 

She's also a person with a lot 
to be proud of. Good job, Theresa!

Cooperative Education: Welcome To 
The Real World 

"Truly a learning experience" 
is hnw seniiii- Douglas Naiin de- 
scribed his participation with the 
Cooperative Education program 
here at III'. 

Doug, a safety science major 
from Monroeville, Pa., found out 
about coopeiati\e education from 
the safety science faculty coordi- 
nator, Robert .McClay Jr. 

Cooperative education differs 
from internship programs be- it consists of at least two 
periods of work experiences al- 
ternating with classroom study, it 
may be scheduled as early as a 
student's sophomore year, and it 
always consists of a paid position. 

Doug completed three coopera- 
tive work experiences during his 
five years at UP. 

His first work experience was 
at an IB.M reseat ch and develop- 
ment facility at Kingston, N.V.. 
during the summer of 198o. .At 
IB.M, he and four safety engi- 
neers tested computer software. 

In the fall of 198(). Doug was 
sent to another IBM facility in 
Charlotte, \.C. 

"The main focus at the manu- 
facturing facility there was fire 
and industrial hygiene, so it was 
more of a hazardous place to 
work. I did enjoy the area, 
though, and I loved the climate," 
he said. 

His final experience was com- 
pleted last summer at the Occi- 
dental Chemical Corporation in 
Kenton, Ohio. 

Doug said he found cooperative 
education to be very beneficial 
because it gave him some insight 
into the working world. 

"1 had the opportunity to see 
how projects really worked," he 
said. "I even worked on develop- 
ing some projects of my own." 

Doug feels that he developed 
better people skills while on the 

'1 learned to interact well with 
the people, especially the profes- 
sionals," Doug explained. "I dis- 
tinguished different levels of 
communication among the vari- 
ous le\els of workers, from man- 
agement to the lowest level." 

After graduation, Doug plans 
to spend a year training with the 
International Paper Company. He 
will spend three months in Geor- 
gia, three months in Tennessee 
and another six months wherever 
the company sends him. 

Doug believes that cooperative 
education helps students build 
confidence and morale 

"Students need to be some- 
what mature in today's business 
world. They must be willing to 
accept responsibility, to take ini- 
tiative and to back off when nec- 
essary," he said. 

Doug advised all safety science 
majors to participate in coopera- 
tive education. 

"If not all students can experi- 
ence it, I think safety science ma- 
jors should. There is a lot of guid- 
ance available, and they don't 
expect you to work miracles. 

"Overall, cooperative educa- 
tion gave me a better knowledge 
and understanding of my working 
field and prepared me well for 
job interviews," he said.

education gave me a better

A Non-Traditional Success Story 

They're e\eiy\vheie. 

Non-traditional students. Older 
students. Continuing education 
students. Whatever you choose to 
call them, they are a part of our 

They are people who come 
back to receive their college de- 
grees after they've been out of 
high school for a number of 
years. They encounter the same 
apprehensions, fears and joy that 
any other student encounters. 
They live, learn and gmw with us 
and we with them. 

Many of these adult students 
venture to IIP from far away, 
but very few come here from En- 
gland. .Avril Barwick did. .And she 
has shown what a non-traditional 
student can do. 

Avril moved to Indiana with 
her husband, Roger, nine years 
ago. They had oiiginall\ mo\ed 
from England to Philadelphia to 
follow Roger's job at Seasonall. 
While in Philadelphia. .Avril 
wrote theater reviews for three 
newspapers. She based her re- 
views on the 12 years of drama 
experience she had gotten in En- 
gland when she was involved 
with a theater group. .Avril and 
Roger eventually moved to Indi- 
ana to follow Roger's job. 

"I found myself in a university 
town— so why not use if.'" .Avril 
asked. She said hei- husband sug- 
gested the idea because she 
would have never thought of it. 
She said he was and has always 

been extremely supportive of her 
college career. 

Avril, 43, interned at the Indi- 
ana Gazette in the fall and is now- 
employed there full-time. She 
said she enjoys her work very 
much and loves to write. 

"Ever since I did my theater 
reviews, I knew I wanted to 
write, so I went light to journal- 
ism," she said. She said she had 
investigated the possibilities of 
going to school part-time or going 
through the school of continuing 
education, but decided to forget 
those alternatives and go full- 
time, "It wasn't like I didn't have 
the time," Avril said. 

Since her two sons, 15 and 16, 
are at boarding schools in En- 
gland, she had the time during 
the day to go to school. "It 
worked out great because when 
they were at a school, 1 was at 
school and when they were off, I 
was off," she explained. 

Even though she had the time 
to go to classes, Avril still had to 
keep her house in ordei-, her mar- 
riage sound and her meals cooked 
while she diligently studied. She 
said it was hard to get back in the 
habits of studying and reading. "I 
don't remember ever completing 
all the reading, but I made a good 
stab at it," she said. She said she 
had to reiearn how to study to 
succeed. She learned this well. 
Because of her commitment and 
stamina, .Avril was named to the 
Dean's List for six of her eight 



\ ^ 




semesters here. She said she en- 
joyed her classes very much and 
that made it easier to do well. 

Avril will receive her bachelor 
of arts degree in journalism this 
May. She is excited to graduate, 
as is every other senior. 

But she, as an adult student, 
can be especially proud. .Adult 
students came back to a world 
they left years earlier and had to 
re-acquaint themselves with 
school, students and book work. 

Hats off to the adult seniors. 
And congratulations, .Avril, for a 
job well done.

An Editor's Laments: Of Goals, Crises And Thanks 

'"'A Year in Motion." Little did 
the 1988 OAK staff know when 
we chose that theme just how 
appropriate it would be. Even be- 
fore the actual academic year be- 
gan, things were off to a roaring 

At the end of the summer, the 
OAK was moved from the spa- 
cious office in Pratt basement to 
the clustered confines of the 
HUB. But with this more central- 
ized location, life would become 
much easier, with the commute 
to the Penn being just down the 

With visions of last year's late 
book in my mind and sounds of 
screaming ex-seniors in my ears, 
the goal was set: to get the 1988 
books out on time at any cost 
(except the cost of quality.) 

This goal, however, could not 
be achieved without interruption. 
And as you read through the 
book, I'd like to relive some of the 
times that made that goal almost 

The first barrier was a large 
one. The OAK's adviser, Jim Dev- 
lin, announced he was leaving 
lUP to take on a new job in 
Maine. The OAK was adviser-less 
for about a month, and while we 

should have been planning the 
book, much time was spent inter- 
viewing applicants for Jim's posi- 
tion. The weeks went by, and the 
search resulted in the hiring of 
Deb Dursi. Although not very ex- 
perienced in yearbooks. Deb was 
anxious to learn, and with the 
help of Quynh Luong, who han- 
dled some of the OAK's business 
matters. Deb was soon on her 
way to exploring the wonderful 
world of yearbooks. 

Fall Semester was consumed 
for the most part by waiting for 
the 1987 OAK to come in. The 
1987 books were finished the day 
before Christmas break, and af- 
ter a trip to State College, the 
1987 book was practically history 
and we began to concentrate on 
the 1988 book. 

Upon returning from winter 
break, the OAK was equipped 
with a new computer. Unfortu- 
nately, it was a bit too late in the 
year to start, but it was another 
step in our year of motion. The 
book was now moving in full 
swing, and it was coming togeth- 
er great. The next problem was 
also rather large: Quynh graduat- 
ed, and Bob Lepley, our assistant 
business manager, was leaving 


for an internship. The business 
duties were now on my shoulders, 
but with the help of Deb, they 
were taken care of. 

The final blow in the year of 
crises affected the staff the most. 
A committee decided that OAk 
section editors, who received less 
than minimal compensation for 
long hours of work, would not be 
getting paid beginning next year. 

The laments could probably 
continue, but the finished prod- 
uct is the main concern. Whle 
looking at the book, it is some- 
what amazing that we were able 
to produce such a high-quality 
product, and each staff member 
contributed their own special 
flair to make each section a 

First was Amy, the only sec- 
tion editor to come close to meet- 
ing a deadline. Pattie, although 
inexperienced, became a perma- 
nent fixture at sports informa- 
tion, and always came through 
(even without any candids). Can- 
dids were also the key word for 
Greeks, and sometimes it felt like 
that section would never go any- 
where, but it turned out to be the 
best Greek section ever. 

Taking on a new look was the 

academics section, and Carl "12 
artworks" Eakin, after many 
late-night marathons and much 
berating from me, put out the 
best academics section the OAK 
has ever had. 

Chris, Susan, Veronica, Robin, 
were wonderful assets to the 
staff, and if it weren't for Stacey, 
the saviour of organizations, I'd 
probably still be working on that 
section now. And we all owe 
thanks to Doug and Joy for tak- 
ing all of these last-minute 

Finally, a word of thanks to 
Larry Intihar, whose guidance 
and story-of-the-month were al- 
ways welcomed and much need- 
ed, and everyone at Davor — 
Gemma, Esther, Abe, Tim and 
Pam. They've finally learned the 
meaning of the world "Rush" and 
we took advantage of it! 

Now that the motion has died 
down, the last words of the 1988 
book are now being put to 
paper, and we met our goal, we 
know it was all worth it, and we 
hope you'll agree. Enjoy! 

— Dana Smith
