Fulfilhng a true actors' dream is a chance to have a role in a classic by the Bard of Avon. The settings were amazing, the costumes were beautiful, the make-up was perfection, but most impressive were the portrayals of Shakespeares' immortal characters by the aspiring thespians of LVC. Many new faces graced the stage of LVC for the first time in this production and showed great promise of things to come. Although fall semester is not mid-summer, the nights of production quickly moved the campus to the forests and a land where fairies and humans share the common problems of being in love. S2 Studait Life, _ unny ^ing avvcncd on the ^^Way to the ^orum "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Fomm" and lots of funny things happened backstage. This dehghtful and entertaining production sponsored by the Wig and Buckle Society brought the slightly risque and definitely complex problems of the Roman citizeniT to life ;in Leady Theater. This mid-Febmary event was capably supenised by our veiT own Dr. Piy and effectively showed off the comedic talents of the LVC students. The technical wonders of Steve Spiese made this musical flow even more smoothly. Our campus surely does have many talented vocalists. The double- lentendre was raised or lowered, depending on your standards to new levels with this tongue in cheek creation. ^udait Life, 33 Scott Payonk, as John Proctor, Colby Hilker, as Deputy-Govenor Danforth, and Nick Curry, as Reverand Samuel Parris were outstanding as the three male leads in Arthur Miller's The Crucible . The female lead of Mary Warren portrayed by Liz Pierce was also very believable in this timeless and thought- provoking chronicle of greed, jealousy and mass hysteria. Particular/ poignant was this production as our country was once again facing war adn confronted by hatred of those who differ from ourselves. Again the Hghting, sets and costumes were great assets to this show. Student director Natahe Dize and all of her production staff did a magnificent job with this play. A bit startUng was the choice of the alternative ending which dramatically re-enforced the evil men can do to each other. S4 ^uMr LiA. gtudy Abroad Each year many Lebanon Valley College students travel over-seas to study for a semester. Lebanon Valley has many wonderful programs that allow students to gain the experience of traveling abroad while still fulfilling many of their major requirements. The dedicated LVC faculty has made it possible to study abroad in even the most demanding majors without jepordizing your education. Students can travel to a variety of locations including London. Spain, New Zealand. Italy. England. France, Greece, the Netherlands and Australia. There are even off-campus opportunities for those who do not wish to leave the country in Philadelphia and Washington D.C. -fiaflW" Li/e- 35 •Homecoming Homecoming Weekend 2002 was a very busy one indeed. The weather was beautiful and provided a wonderful backdrop to the festivities. The 1953-1955 Men's Baskeball teams had a reunion and were honored at the football game. Other reunions on campus this weekend were the classes of 1987, 1992 and 1997, celebrating their fifteenth, tenth, and fifth year reunions. Athletic events of the weekend included home games by the Field hockey. Volleyball, Women's Tennis, and Football teams. Those in attendance were also treated to a spectacular performance by the Marching Band. This year's Hall of Fame inductees were: Brooks Slatcher '62, Tom Nussbaum '80, Robert Johnston '84. Cindy (Sladek) Chimino '90, and Jennifer (Deardorff) Atkinson '86. 3b ^iuU Life, q^and The 2003 Pride of the Valley Marching Band is the principle band experience for the fall semester. Membership in the Symphonic and Marching Band is open to anyone in the College community. During the fall semester, the marching band performs at home football games. Many non-music majors participate in these groups. This year's Pride of the Valley also attended several shows in addition to playing at games. During the spring semester, the symphonic band performs at a spring concert and at Commencement. Unfortunately this year the senior symphonic band selection was cut from Commencement due to inclement weather. ^udiMt Life, 37 Qhcrry ^fossom ^cstivaf The first Annual Cherry Blossom was a success.

Hundreds of thousands of American soldiers were shipped to Iraq to help free that country from it's dictator ruler, Saddam Hussein. Both America and the world at large were devided on these issues. Many feU that the US should be minding its own business, or that we were just making a fuss because of oil. Others felt that if the president said we were going to war, then we were going and staunchly supported the war. These split opinions were strongly felt even on the small campus of LVC. Students of differing opions gathered to discuss their views, and opening share about how this war was affecting them. One one fact however almost everyone could agree, no matter what people felt about the war, everyone supported the troops, and hoped for their swift and safe return. Only time will tell whether the objectives have been met and all weapons of mass destruction destroyed. Saddam has fallen from power and a massive man hunt is on for Iraq's fifty five most wanted as pictured on the playing cards distributed to the American soldiers.

We were not protesting the war. V\'e were protesting eoniplacent apathy. On Wednesday. Mareh ISth. 2003. George W. Bush and the United States military started their bombing campaign on Iraq. The next night, about 30 of us gathered for a candle-light \ igil to show our respect for the lives that were to be lost in this new war. Immediateh thereafter, a few of us went out onto the academic quad, next to the rose garden, and set up some tents. This marked the beginning of our campaign against complacency. When we started, there were only three of us -- all students. When we took down the tents on .April 15th. we had grown to include roughly 30 more students. 15 facult> members, members of the administration, and the much appreciated support of the Public Safet\ officers. .Abundant support, in the form of amenities, spirited debate, and endless encouragement afforded a sense of community to our effort that extended far beyond the perimeter of the actual encampment. In fact, on Wednesday. March 26th. a campus-wide series of teach-ins occurred.

He was punched. We are stiU not able to fully comprehend what ner\e we (touched to elicit such a violent response from some. .After lall. we were just hanging out on the quad. Regardless, these (attacks were proof that we had succeeded - complacent lapathy had been defeated. We would rather people be angr\ :at us and caring about the issue than ignoring it completely. 'To all those who attacked us. thank you. [On Monday. 14 .April 2003. the Pentagon declared an end to the major military offensive campaign in Iraq. While we jwelcomed the encouraging news, the possibility of small-scale militar\ engagement had not been ruled out. This being the lease, there was a strong possibility that people would continue to die. And the\ diii. Howe\er. we felt that this was a good indicator that living on the quad was no longer necessary. 'The next night, we held a candle-light vigil to end the time spent at the tents m the same wa\ that it was started. We lit |2000 candles on the academic quad - roughly one candle for each life lost in the war. It was beautiful and bittersweet. The jtents had been taken down. TTie following statement was written b\ the Tent I'eople during the war. It speaks dirccth to how we felt at the time. .A message from Tent City: We are here as a li \ ing reminder. In going ab out our daiK lives, it is easy to forget that children and soldiers alike are dying side by side while we sit in comfort, i'eople just like us are losing everything they have. American. Kurd. British. Iraqi - people are dying. This is the truth of war. Our goal is twofold. We are here to give a \ oicc to those soldiers and ci\ ihans who are being slaughtered each da\. Also, we desire to generate and promote college-wide dialogue and awareness about the issues surrounding the war. We will be open and frank with you about our views about this war. Our opinions differ. We are b\' no means unanimous. Except about this one point: that the lives being wiped out should not be ignored. We Uve in a world such that what affects one dirccth affects all indirectly. We remind you that war cannot give, it can only take away. And this war is touching all of our lives. We are here to show our respect and support for human life. Or maybe it's just that we like tents. By .lordan Miller S.A.G.A.

Synodinos, H'96, served Lebanon Valley am^aUege; loyally and with vision foceight years from 1988 [ii^LTatiri^^^ when he assumed the position of President Emeritus and continued his role as adynamic leader in the field of higher education and, more importantly, as a .guide for LVC. Dr. Synodinos died on December 26, iiipiji|i|iw 2002, after a long illness at the age of 68, but the ^^^ w^IfW influence and foresight he demonstrated during his tenure: iflfl^B Htm. ^il^^ ^^'^ continue to shape this institution for years to come. ^^^^H 'lIliMpiiii^ Synodinos sei"ved as the fifteenth president and was ^^^^H j^jiji^ ^^^IH highly thought of as an innovative leader who helped to ^^^^B ^t^^^ ^^^^^1 rcinvigoratc this small liberal arts college at a critical ^^^BiB_Ji93^1-__^BHBBl^^ moment in its history. Under the leadership of John __ .i^,,!^Synodinos, Lebanon Valley implemented a merit-based scholarship program which quickly attracted st(i(T^1\'ls who desired to strive for higher academic standards. It was also Dr. Synodinos who knew that these new students would need newer and more technologically-based classrooms and learning areas. Therefore the renovation and building plans that now dominate the LVC landscape were begun. During the time he served at LVC, two- thirds of the campus buildings were renovated. The Vernon and Doris Bishop Library was completed in 1996, and the Suzanne H. Arnold Art Galleiy was founded in a former church. It was also during this time that the landscaping of the entire campus was done, making it the truly beautiful spot it is today. As a tribute to both John Synodinos and his wife. Gjenda, the Peace Garden was dedicated; tbis garden is is located in the center of the residential portion of campus and serves to remind us all how central Dr. Synodinos was to LVC. It was another of this man's goals to see the enrollment of The Valley bloom and that too is coming to fruition. By 1996 full- time enrollment had increased by forty-six percentioyr g^,^ After retiring Dr. Synodinos continued to sei-ve^VG^fid its students as a member of the Boarc of Trustees and perhaps, more importantly to the students, as a teacher of history and business classes to which he brought much personal knowledge; the students had only to look beyond the walls of their classroom to see that he truly know what he was teaching. Always one to know that education is also a business, Synodinos co-founded the Frankhn Consulting Group, which assists non-profit organizations with planning and fundraising to achieve their dreams. And so remembering all Dr. John Synodinos has done for LVC, we offer this book in honor of his dedicadon to students here and everywhere. 112 OeduoaUm cnior 113 ma OVCatcr QiRis ring iiifl song avc raise jfi Asong that's Jifteawitli praise, ^We cannot hcfp But fove ^ec, Qur *^Hearts are Juff and free, ^u[f we RnoAV the cfeht we o ^otfearoW^^^O.C ^Ve cotne Jrotfii eld *^r%\v 'Hanipshiri^^ v^'^^^icre \Vmter breezes 6fow, yw^L^d from the sunny jSouthfancf, Eg/'^^^^^^Wicre sweet magnolias grow, wi^^\c sung "§tar gpangfetf *^]3ann I ^ ''£)i\ie"givcn d ckeer, s l^cf now we raise this song of prm ^ursnvte^ ^ ^ma tPKjCiter (fear. ^^ (pui forth your strongest mi Ay^d fet our ^ma [^^ter soura ^Wm each ancf every ^ight , ^^•^t high it's royaf banner _ Al^d keep its honor cfear \ ngies^iovoi, ^->-<v,i^ fet our sonti with voices strona, Rchiand ^^C/^^^ ix!^9 ao^^•n thro itiany a year Saint f lair ( Pjlechanicsville 1^ /s "")!:'' "" Port Csr M.inefsyilii^ M„j;;^'^Palo Allc Schuylkill Haven [HJ- Cressona Jr^V-' ( olo The 2003 Charting the Course edition of thrQuitta^>ahtilg.

You ma> he thinking, hardly a game, right? \\ell. if \ou saw the Powder Puff game on the night of Oet. 3 on the football practice field. \ou know how mistaken that thought tmly is. Right otTthe bat. the team of freshmen and seniors started taunting the sophomores and juniors as they ran laps around the field getting warmed up for the game. After that, the game was just as competiti\ely fierce as ever. Shirts were torn, blood was spilled, and most of that just in the first half By the end of the first halt\ the seniors and freshmen were leading the game, but only by a couple points. However, in the second half the sophomores and juniors let them know that they weren't going down without a fight and scored in the remaining minutes of the game. The final score: 14-16. with the freshmen and seniors earning the win. One of the major highlights from the game was the speed running of freshman LaToya "T- Re\" Stewart. Freshman quarterback Kathx Da\ is. Stated about LaTo>a"s running that "She was so fast the other team couldn't catch her." .After all is said and done, does that fierce competition from the game still exist? Well, considering a quote from freshman Stephanie Kline, the offensiv e center for the freshman-senior team, there seems to be quite a fit. "The coaches pulled the team together and got us working like a well-oiled machine. We onK' had fi\ e practices but that was enough to defeat what little competition we had." By Lauren Bates Get ready to walk in Relay for Life The LVC communit\ will be coming together in Arnold Sports Center next weekend for the second annual American Cancer Society Relay for Life. Over 40 teams will be walking, jogging, amning, and skipping the night away on March 28 and 29. Last year the relay was extremely .successful, raising over Si 9,00, and is hoped to be e\en more successful this year. ' The relay, which raises money for Cancer research, begins at 4 p.m. on Friday and wraps up at 4 p.m. Saturday. Entertainment for the 24 hours will consist of bands, deejays, a comedian, sports, and much more. This year there will also be an additional fundraiser titled "What's In My Bucket." Students will be able to purchase chances (one for S.50 or three for Si) to dump a bucket full of mysterious contents on one of the following volunteers: President Pollick. Dr. Friedman. Dr. Kline, Dr. Bain-Selbo. Dr. Summers, Mrs. Summers. Dr. Heise. Dr. Grieve-Carlson. Dr. Hathaway. Jason Kuntz, Jen Evans, Rick Beard, and Public Safety Officer Laura, Chances will go on sale during meals at the end of this week. Donations of any amount are accepted for the relay. Paper moons and stars may be purchased for $1 to celebrate the life of a Cancer sun'ivor or to honor a victim. Luminaries can also be purchased for $5 and will be lit during the relay. Good luck to all the relay teams. Those of you who are not walking, definitely come over to \rnold and join in the fun. ,3y Cassandra Hoadley - News Editor /\/m 115 Soccer teams eye third straight trip to playoffs If you notice a guy walking around campus with an ear-to-ear grin on his face, it's probably Lebanon Valley College soccer coach Mark Pulisic. Pulisic. in his tenth year at the Valley, is enjoying tremendous success with both the men's and women's teams this season. The men (7-4-2 overall. 2-2-1 Commonwealth) arc on track to match last year's 1 1-7-2 record that got them to the Commonwealth playoffs for a second straight year. The women (9-5 overall. 2-2 Commonwealth) are also havmg a great season. The men were on fire for the first half of the season, dropping only one game o\er then' first nine, including a six- game unbeaten streak. However, the Dutchmen have lost their last three games, including a disastrous 9-1 loss at ninth-ranked Messiah in which they were outshot 22-5. The men's outstanding first half of the season did not go unrewarded, as they had back-to-back Commonwealth Players of the Week in first-year student Matt Sourbeer and sophomore Brian Sapienza. Sourbeer was instrumental in the Valley's 2-1 win over Goucher College with an assist and the game-winning goal in the 72nd minute. Meanwhile. Sapienza netted a hat trick, including two in seven minutes against Widener University in the Dutchmen's 5-0 victow. On Sept. 24. senior Grant Walter scored his 26th career goal to become the Valley's all-time leading scorer. Walter, who also owns the school record for total points, surpassed Greg Glembocki '97 and Nick Thomas '02 for the record. The women's soccer team's games against Messiah and Wilkes exemplified now the season has gone for them so far - they lose a hard fought contest, them bounce back with a huge win. Against sixth-ranked Messiah College, the contest was scoreless before the Falcons broke the deadlock and took the lead in the 79th minute. Messiah's Mindy Miller added another in the 88th minute to seal the victory. However, the women rebounded at a soggy Herbert Field on Oct. 19 with an impressive 7-2 \icton o\er Wilkes University. Juniors Katie Altemose and Kin McDonald each netted a pair of goals, while Lisa Giaciuinto. Dawn Rumble\\ and Christina Puthwala added one each. The Dutchmen's defense also played spectacularly, holding Wilkes scoreless for 80 minutes and allowing them to only eight shots on the afternoon. Not to be outdone by their male countci"pai"ts. the women's team also fielded back-to-back Commonwealth Pla\ers of the Week in senior Rumbley and junior McDonald. Rumbley has been outstanding on the pitch this season, earning conference honors for her game-winnmg goal in LVC's upset against seventeenth-ranked Gettysburg College. McDonald leads the team in points with 25 and is second in goals scored with nine. The final third of the season will be critical for both teams if they hope to advance to the Commonwealth playoffs. Both squads currently stand in fourth place in the league, a position they need to hold on to. For the men. only two conference matches remain, Oct. 26 at Susquehanna and then back at Herbert Field on Nov. 2 to end the season against Albright. Susquehanna is ahead of the Dutchmen in the standings, while Albright is winless in four conference games. The women will have a tougher road, as the\ ha\e three straiglit road conference games remaining against Susquehanna, Albright, and Elizabethtown. Both Susquehanna and Elizabethtown aie both ahead of the Dutchmen in the rankings. However, if both teams can win out. they will be all but assured a spot the playoffs for a third straiglit year, making the smile on coach Pulisic's face that much wider. B\ Tim Flynn Sports Writer 116 Nm ^ ^)ic Qoilcaicnnc Lynch Gym goes out with a bank shot for the ages Lynch G\ mnasium knew it was already sentenced to death. On Feb. 22. it was doing everything it could to go out with a bang. The rainy Saturday afternoon saw four games, dozens of alumni. 1.300 fans. 41 points from Jon David Byers. and two unforgettable overtimes. You couldn't ask for a more fitting end to the 53 year-old gym that had the reputation of being the most intimidating in NC.\A Division HI basketball. It was already a foregone conclusion that the men's game against Messiah would be the last men's game to ever be held at Lynch. With a win. the Dutchmen would clinch the fourth and final seed in the Commonwealth tournament, with no chance of hosting a playoff However, the motivation was all there for the men to put on an amazing show - win. and the season would be one game longer. Lose, and the season goes the way of Lynch. The Dutchmen led by as much as 1 1 early in the second half, but the last-place Messiah Falcons, playing for respect, wouldn't die. After Messiah's Dave Henninger pulled the Falcons even with 1:38 to go in the game, the Falcons missed a jumper. Freshman forward Dan Hogan would get the final shot for LVC. but missed an off-balance three-pointer for the right baseline as the buzzer sounded to send the game to overtime. Then it was time for J.D. to take over. Byers hit three treys in the extra period, and scored all 12 of the Dutchmen's points. Still, the men found themselves down b\ three with three seconds left in the game. After the intentional foul from Darren Pugh. Greg Bernhardt went to the line to shoot two and ice the game. Amazingly. Bernhardt missed both of them. No one in attendance will forget what happened next. Pugh grabbed the rebound, immediately outletting to Byers. Byers weaved through two defenders to half-court with just one second left, and threw the ball into the air. In a split-second that lasted forever, the ball sailed through the air. 1.300 pairs of eyes fixed on it. It took one bounce off the backboard and went in. Game tied, double overtime. Lynch erupted. Messiah's fans, expecting the win. sat stunned at first, then gave Byers a standing o\ation. "The Shot" was so amazing that even the Messiah players came over to the LVC bench to congratulate Byers. The rest of the game was just a footnote. The spirit of Lynch wouldn't let them lose this time. Byers would score four more in the second OT, ending up with a career-best 41 points, a school record eight three-pointers, and five assists in the 85-82 win. After a ceremony between games to fill a time capsule commemorating L\ nch. the women were ready to take the court, albeit 50 minutes late. The Dutchmen were fighting for the second seed in the playoffs and a home playoff game, but it would come at the hands of arch-nemesis Messiah. The fates would not conspire so well for the women; Lynch's spirit was exhausted. The women trailed by 15 at the half and never had a chance after that, eventually falling to the Falcons. 64-41. The loss meant that the women would have to travel to Moravian for the first round of the play-offs, making their game against Messiah the final varsity game at Lynch. Next season, basketball and volleyball will compete in the cavernous new arena that is quickly rising from the mud next to the Arnold. As luxurious and modern as the new arena will be. no one who ever played or watched a game in Lynch will be able to forget it. Although everyone will remember something different - the rock-hard creaky bleachers, legendarx public address announcer Judge John Walter '53. the stifiing heat - no one will be able to forget. By Timothy Flynn sports Writer /Vm 117 First Place: LVC Baseball right where they left off The LVC baseball team finished last season on a bitter-sweet note. In the first round of the NCAA tournament the Dutchmen ousted third ranked Methodist College before losing in the next round. This season. Valley is picking up right where they left off, catapulting to an impressive 9-2 record in the early going. To kick off the season, the Dutchmen traveled to Homestead, Florida, over spring break to participate in six games. The team had a successful week going 4-2, including a stunning 5-4 victory over the No. 3 team in the country. The College of New Jersey, to cap off the trip. The teams venture to Florida garnered recognition back home as junior outfielder Jeff Grieger and sophomore pitcher Dennis Reiller were respectively named Commonwealth Player and Pitcher of the week. During the trip Grieger hit an impressive .417, with a pair of walks, one stolen base and also scored five runs again The College of New Jersey. On the mound, Reilly went 2-0 with a miniscule 1.29 ERA while tossing two complete games. Upon returning home, Reilly was informed that he had been selected as the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Pitcher of the week. "I was honored to receive the award", said Reilly adding, "The award does not change my outlook on the season, it is my job to go out and pitch to the best of my ability." Since returning home the Dutchmen have stayed hot going 5-0, all of which have been Commonwealth Conference victories. One of the key reasons to the team's success since returning from Florida has been its pitching. Senior Dallas Noll's 1-0 record in three games paired with his microscopic 1.40 ERA has played a major role in the Dutchmen's fast start. While his statistics vouch for his huge contributions to the team, Noll is hesitant to take any credit for himself. "Most of the credit goes to the team. I think the pitching staff in general has been excellent so far." Offensively the Dutchmen have gotten a boost from both junior first basemen Mark Schauren and senior catcher Tim Rink. So far this season Schauren has hit .421 with a homerun and is third on the team with nine RBIs. Schauren explains his early success by saying, "Confidence and aggressiveness have been my main attributes so far this season at the plate." Schauren can also thank Rink, who bats behind him in the order, for forcing pitchers to not walk him. Rink is second on the team in batting average hitting .457 and leads the team in RBIs with 1 1. Rink's early success is impressive considering the fact that he was unable to even swing a bat all winter because of his participation on the LVC hockey team. "I believe the key to my success early in the season is through both mental and physical preparation before games." Rink also added, "In baseball, timing is everything and I believe that hockey contributes a lot to helping me adjust top the game of baseball." With all the success the Dutchmen have enjoyed this season there is one man whose efforts certainly cannot go unnoticed. This man of course is head coach Jim Hoar, who is entering his fourth season as LVC's skipper. "Teams I've coached have always hit well, a lot is believing in the offensive plan and being aggressive early in the count," stated Hoar. When asked about the team's goals for the season Coach Hoar said, "We expect to go all the way," adding, "This year's team has a lot of chemistry, and every time they step on the field they expect to win." Coach Hoar's expectations for this season has echoed by the players as well. "Our team goal this year is to defend our conference title first of all and then go a step further in the NCAA Championships then we did last year, which is ultimately the Division III World Series," said Schauren.

Today we are engaged in a liberation of the Iraqi people, cutting through the public relations semantics, we're at was to oust Saddam Hussein, there are those who feel strongly about out presence to remoN e the Baath Party regime, but there is an ever-growing voice throughout the countn committed to reciprocate their view against the war. While some movements may seem far away, even here on our won campus we have a group of students who are attempting to increase awareness about the war and its issues. Some commonK refer to them as. "the tent people." In short, that sums up a surface viewpoint of the group who has been camping outside of Miller Chapel since Thursda\ March 20th. One-day after the first strike in Iraq, and those in\ol\ ed \ow to be there until the troops come home. The encampment. originalK started b> members of Students Acti\e for Global Awareness (SAGA). has seen an increase from four to 24 in their week and a half of demonstration, though, some demonstrating students are simpK- against this war and not necessarily members of SAGA, student invoKed in the 'sit-out" quickly stated that they were in support of our troops and their actions were not exactly "protesting" the war. but an attempt to increase student's awareness about the war and its historical background leading up to the confiict. .\s students w alk b\ the tents the> can't help but wonder w hat propels someone to camp out for weeks. "It brings it home', stated the Co-President of SAGA Jordan Miller, "even if for a minute." Hoping to bring students into their camp to discuss and even debate issues about the war. Miller went on to claim that. "I am a pacifist but others are out here for different reason." Eric Saner, the second Co-president of Saga mentioned. "The Vigil is for all suffering in war. US troops, their families. Iraqis, their families foreign people - e\enone directly affected by war." Whether for peace in the short or long term, the 'tent people" are intended to bring discussion throughout this campus about the conflict. Saner concluded. "SAGA is not an anti- war or peace acti\ist group. ..it's important to work to the demographics that bring about global awareness." Whether "Hipp>" or "High & Tight". "Consenative" or "Liberal" those in the tents, whether you agree or disagree w ith them make Lebanon Valley and America what it is- a place for educational enlightenment and the freedom to speak your mind. (Those who disagree I encourage you to debate them and challenge \our point of view - rather than take up \iolence against them. \ou would only be engaging in an act of educational supremac\-. that of the Baath Party.) An LVC resident, who wishes to remain anonymous stated. "I don't see what they plan to accomplish, the war is already engaged." The person went on to say, "When consenative students demonstrate politics, they don't have 'all the information.' when a hberal student demonstrates, they're 'enlightened.'" Bv Tim Burdis Nm 119 LVC says that studying abroad is safer than ever Now that the war with Iraq is coming to an end, talks of going to war with other countries have come about. For many students here at Lebanon Valley College, the thought of going to war affects them more than others. These students are ones who are planning on studying abroad in the fall or spring semesters. Jill Russell, study abroad advisor here at LVC, believes that going abroad in the fall or spring is as safe as going any other time. "Overall program numbers are down by a few students from last year, more than likely due to the current world situation, but we are still happy with the number of students that have chosen to take advantage of this great opportunity,:" said Russell. Next semester, LVC plans on sending students to the following programs: London, England, Australia, Italy, France, Spain, Germany, and Washington D.C. One LVC Student who wishes to remain anonymous, said that he was a little ner\'ous about going overseas next semester with the recent global events. However, the student did say he cannot wait to go and experience another culture. "I'm sure anyone you ask is a little bit nervous about going, but I know it is just as safe now as ever to go," he said. "Of course, I'm more excited than anything and I can't wait to go." LVC has no plans to suspend any of our programs abroad due to the world situation. "We Believe that our students currently abroad in New Zealand and Italy are safe, and believe that our students will be safe at our program sites in the fall," said Russell. LVC expects overall participation to be higher in 2004 in all of the program sites. Students and parents will realize that study abroad is an important component of a liberal arts education. And despite reports that are received N'ia television and newspapers, Americans are generally not "disliked" overseas. Students that have studied abroad, and those who have lived abroad, have found that many foreigners may not agree with U.S. foreign policy. ..but they are more than happy to share a pint with an American to talk about it. The Study Abroad Office continues to monitor world events. We receive daily information from the U.S. State Depaitment for information regarding travel advisories worldwide, and are also in continuous contact with our host schools abroad. By Joe Candio - Editor LVC student arrested for ordinance violations (tiomtheApniFoorsEda.on-ByBenDover) On Monday .March 31, an LVC student was arrested on ordinance violations. Annville Township Police along with LVC Public Safety, with both Lebanon Police and Palmyra Police on standby, stormed Dellinger Hall Monday afternoon at 2 and arrested senior English communications major Joe Candio. According to Annville Police, Candio had violated the noise ordinance, which was passed last semester, several times and had blueprint layouts and plans to violate the parking ordinances and make fiature noise violations. Annville Police and LVC Public Safety were at a two hour standoff Monday when they first attempted to arrest Candio. Cando did not go quietly, in fact he wound up getting more noise violations because of his shouting and yelling from the window, which unfortunately for him was heard more than 50 feet away. Apparently Candio had gone about the small Annville community and on certain nights at 10:05 p.m., broke the noise ordinance, which begins at 10 p.m. "It was the most awful thing ever. I fear for my life and the life of my family," said one Annville resident who wishes to remain anonymous. His family was "attacked" in late Jan. when Cando approached the house with a phonograph and blasted Quiet Riot's song, "Cum On Feel The Noise." Other incidences that Candio was involved in include running around the township with a megaphone just talking to people at a normal pitch. But, since he had a megaphone, his volume well exceeded the 50 feet maximum distance. Another Annville resident, who also wishes to remain anonymous, has seen Candio around town causing nothing but trouble. "He's the reason we are leaving this town. And why Annville residents don't want to raise their children here," she said. "He's a bad influence to others. He's the one driving by honking his horn and urinating on parked cars and street signs." Police found at Candio's Dellinger apartment, a blueprint layout of the parking system in Annville. Police, ironically, cannot seem to get Candio to talk about what he was planning, but they have a felling it would require the attention of a lot of meter maids. Police are also unsure if anyone was working with him or if he operated alone. 1^0 Newi rZINE Music From hip-hop to electronica, pop to rock, no one musical genre dominated the airwaves and headphones of America.
