"A Mid-Summer Night's Dream" was 
certainly a dream come tme for many 
Lebanon Valley theater goers. 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,

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.

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.

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.

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, 


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.

habitat for 

A beautiful Saturday afternoon in October 
APO and Project teamed up to lend a hand to 
Habitat for Humanity-Lebanon County. 
About twenty-five LVC students dug. carried, 
pounded, sawed and totally destroyed a 
residence which was being remodelled as a 
home for a family in the city. Working side 
by side with others from througout the county, 
much was accoplished in a single day. This 
was a rewarding experience and a great wa\' 
to let out some of the stress which had built up 
during mid-terms. Habitat is only one of the 
many ser\-ice organizations that APO works 
with on a regular basis.

Christmas Child 

During the fall months Lebanon Valley 
students collected and wrapped ninety-eight 
shoe boxes. These shoe boxes were then filled 
with toys, candy, books, and personal hygiene 
items to be sent to children in third world 
countries. Operation Christmas Child is an 
international program that annual distributes 
approximately five million shoe boxes to 
children who would otherwise recieve nothing 
during the holiday season. These boxes go to 
places like the slums of Mexico City and war 
torn Bosnia. Lebanon Valley is proud to play 
a small part in making the lives of these 
children just a little brighter at the holidays.

30 *Hour "famine 

The 30 Hour Famine is a nation wide event 
that occurs during the month of February. 
LVC held their famine in late October because 
of the weather. Students and adults pledge to 
go 30 hours without eating to support star\ing 
children around the world. Participants 
collect donations and pledges.This mone\' is 
sent to third world nations to help feed the 
future. World Vision is the organization that 
manages the famine. In conjunction with the 
Famine LVC held a camp out where students 
slept in refridgerator boxes to experience the 
lives of the homeless lead, and to make the 
campus more aware of the world around us.

Service "^Project 

Appalachian Senice Project is a group thai is 
based in Tennessee. They do work similar to 
that of Habitat for Humanity. Their specific 
mission is to better the lives of the people of 
Appalacia through the contruction and 
remodeling of homes. They cannot fulfill this 
mission without the help of dedicated 
volunteers. Lebanon Valle\' sent one such 
group to rural West Virginia the week after 
graduation. During the week the students 
built, painted, sided, roofed, insulated, 
spackled. waterproofed, drilled, nailed, and 
generally had a wonderful time. Evening 
events included camp fires and bowling.

Operation ^raqi 

This spring the second major assult in the 
war on terrorism was staged. 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.

So Caufiu Life,

Jordan Miller SAGA Pres. 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. Professors from man\' departments canceled or modified the 
content of their regularly scheduled classes and opened up their classes to the entire 
campus. The teach-in was a revolutionar\ success 
UnfortunatcK. others lelt the need to %iolently react to otir prosuKc tlui i. W l sLisiaiiKd six iiticks duri nti tun month 
outside. We had 40 oz. beer bottles thrown at us, the tents 
Iwere beaten on with sticks and bombarded with water 
jballoons, and the tents were uprooted and broken. All of 
these events, as well as a few others, occurred late at night 
j while we were asleep. When one of these attacks was 
|occurring. one of us got out and attempted to distract the 
jattackers. 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 


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. President

cXusic at c^C 

Lebanon Valley College is home to a wide variety of musical 
talent. Here students, members of the music department or 
not, get ample opportunity to express themselves. Open Mic 
nights at MJ's. campus talent shows, performing groups, and 
festivals provide forums for the exhibition of innumerable 
talents. At the right Freddie Long, an LVC favorite, performs 
during the First Annual Cherry Blossom Festival. Below Mark 
Brown performs during a Down to Earth talent night in the 
fall. Below and right Voices of Spirit fill the academic quad 
with their soulfully angelic sounds during a spring picnic. 
These groups are just a few of the many that represent the 
LVC campus through their artistic endeavors. 

At right four LVC students perform a long 
requested song Accapella style. Many LVC 
students use their talents to help others. Before 
Christmas break RICK C and Freddie Long put 
on an informal concert in the Undergroud. All 
proceeds from the event went to the Marine 
Corps" Toys for Tots Program. RICK C was not 
seen much this spring because one of the C's. 
Matt Ceresini, was studying in Italy. However 
the entire campus awaits their return in the fall. 

90 Caufui Life, 

Above the group Up a Tree performs an outdoor concert. 
This group performs at weekly seeker services on Sunday 
evenings in Chapel 101. Above and right the founding 
members of Iota, the first Aftican-American fraternity on 
campus, perform a step routine. To the right H.I.S. 
serenades the campus during one of their numerous 
appearances this spring. Befow and right are the davisband 
and Sarah WTiite: both had a chance to perform during 
Cherry Blossom. Below it LVC"s own Locrian. This group 
of LVC students formed right here on the campus in the fall 
of 2001. While many of the members are graduating this 
spring, they hope to keep the band together. Their 7 track 
EP entitled Mcmorx' is now a\ailable. There is the 

possibilit} of a rccoidiiig contract in this group's future.

^^s^iiMhn 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.

Freshmen and Seniors take the homecoming powder puff game; seniors rule 

Girls playing football. 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."

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.

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.

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.

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 

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

Tent-ative Protestors? 

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

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

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.
