Have you ever stopped to consider that 
our perspective as students went through some 
pretty major changes? We entered Monmouth 
College maybe a little scared of this new future, 
not sure what to expect. We left perhaps jaded 
toward the weekend parties, the hectic finals 
week, and even toward the wide-eyed freshmen. 

How did this happen? Experiences, 
mostly. The friends we made, the teachers we 
had, even what we ate for breakfast - each had an 
effect on our emerging adult years that resulted 
in a change in the way we looked at the school, 
the outside world, and even ourselves. While 
this concept was not new, it was fascinating to 
come to the realization that, by understanding 
this notion, we could use it to our advantage. 

The revelation came when we under- 
stood that we could actually choose our own 
perspective by choosing our experiences. As we 
chose our friends, classes, and activities, it was 
understood that each of us were shaping our own 
future. Adulthood came when we stopped letting 
college happen to us and started making it hap- 
pen/brus. We opened our eyes, took it all in, and 
made it what we wanted. Each one of us created 
our own perspective .

being taken outside. 
Borcila constructed the

Helping the freshmen 
move in is no treat for 
senior Mike Cortina. 
As he and the other stu- 
dent orientation lead- 
ers quickly became 
aware, it involved a lot 
of muscle and sweat. 
The rest of the orienta- 
tion went a bit more 
smoothly, as the lead- 
ers helped the freshmen 
adapt to their new sur- 
roundings and make 
new friends.

dents what was avail- 
able for them to get in- 
volved in, and COIL's 
goal was to make stu- 
dents aware of it as a 
forum for their more 
creative voices.

New student David Kimber moves into the newly

year after a summer of renovation in an effort to 
accomodate the large freshman class. 

Dear Grandma, 

Well, I made it through 
the first day of college! We ar- 
rived early, and after moving in 
and unpacking as best as I could 
for the moment, I had to hurry and 
change for the Matriculation Cer- 
emony, which welcomed the new 
students to Monmouth. 

We met the other mem- 
bers of our Freshmen Seminar 
class and walked over to the lawn 
in front of Wallace Hall, where 
the faculty and the new president 
of Monmouth, Sue Huseman, 
were there to welcome us. 

President Huseman gave 
an impressive speech. She told us 
that she was also a "freshman," so 
it would be a year of discoveries 
for all of us. That made everyone 
feel a little more reassured and 
relaxed. I was impressed, and by 
the end of her greeting I was anx- 
ious to begin. 

We then shook hands with 
our new professors, who were all 
very friendly. They stayed and 
ate lunch out on the lawn with us 
to answer some of the questions 
we had. 

I am looking forward to 
the next four years here, develop- 
ing a new perspective on things, 
which is what I think President 
Huseman was saying when she 
talked about Monmouth being a 
liberal arts college.

Dr. Sue Huseman takes time out from her busy 
schedule to pose for a photograph. Huseman, a 
native of St. Louis, did her undergraduate and 
graduate work in the midwest. 

President Huseman braves the chill in order to 
support the Fighting Scots on the field. Huseman 
was often at sporting and other events in her effort 
to become better acquainted with the college. 

President Huseman makes one of her many ap- 
pearances as Monmouth's new president. Since 
her arrival. Huseman has been constantly meeting 
members of the community. 


President Huseman receives messages from sec- 
retary Connie Fairchild. Huseman came to Mon- 
mouth tiller spending live years at the University 
of Maine at Farmington. 

While working at the Univer- 
sity of Maine, President Sue Huseman 
thought she had left the Midwest for 
good. In fact, she was nominated for the 
presidency of Monmouth College with- 
out her knowledge. Upon reflection, 
however, she stated that "I sort of feel 
that this was meant to be." 

Huseman never really pictured 
herself working at MC until her on- 
campus visit. "[MC is] the quintessen- 
tial liberal arts college campus. It felt 
like it would be a wonderful place to be 
part of the campus community," 
Huseman expressed. 

Huseman noted that from the 
moment of her arrival, she felt welcome 
in Monmouth. One kind gesture that she 
pointed out occurred on her first day in 
town. She and her family had arrived 
before the moving truck, so physical 
plant director Pete Loomis had moved 
dorm beds and a TV set into the house. 
"People were just incredibly thoughtful 
that way," she said. 

Huseman spent her first week 
in Monmouth getting to know the cam- 
pus, inspecting each building thor- 
oughly, "so I'd have a sense of what the 
physical space is here and what our 
needs are." 

While Huseman had much to 
do her first year as president, her main 
goal was to build a sense of community. 
She wanted the campus to realize the 
true mission of MC, to "come together 
saying 'Yes, this is who we are; this is 
incredibly important, this preparation of 
young people for responsible global citi- 
zenship...' and we're all doing it, whether 
we work in the cafeteria or make the 
grounds beautiful or patrol the campus 
so it is safe or teach in the classroom." 

With this in mind, MC's new 
president was off to a good start.

Beep.... Beep... sound familiar? Every- 
one knew what it felt like to be in the middle of 
a great dream only to hear that annoying beeping 
of the alarm clock. When freshman Cyndi Russell 
heard her alarm clock, she "beat the alarm" until 
it turned off, while sophomore Cliff Hastings just 
picked up "the nearest thing around my bed" and 
threw it at the alarm to shut it off. 

Once awakened, it was time to stumble 
down the hall for a shower in a feeble attempt to 
wake up. Depending on one's affection for 
sleep, however, showers were sometimes put off 
altogether in order to save time. 

The next order of the day was to head to 
the cafeteria for a nutritious breakfast or lunch, 
considering when one actually woke up. After 
the stomach was satisfied, it was time to return to 
classes or just "catch a snooze," as freshman 
Brad Mandeville put it. 

Whether people had extracurricular 
events or decided to just "lay under a tree," like 
senior Cassie Zelinske, people found time to 
relax. And when the end of the day came, the 
students took a deep breath and braced them- 
selves, knowing that the next morning would 
bring yet another fun-filled day as the alarm went 
off again hy Jenn I arson

What could anyone possibly do for fun on a small campus? Good 
question. For starters, there was a game being played every day in front of Stockdale 
Center, which was hackysack. It looked like fun, but it was not a piece of cake. 
What else was going on in front of Stockdale? Whizzing by at top speed, roller 
bladers careened down the hill towards either a great jump off of the stairs or a trip 
to the emergency room. Providing exercise and a chance to get out into the sun, 
roller blading proved a popular outdoor activity for many students. Every once in 
a while, a professor could also be seen gliding along, but you had to be in the right 
place at the right time. 

When not in use as a hockey rink, the tennis courts were utilized by those 
wishing to engage in a match or two. Junior Christy Finch stated, 'it's a time where 
1 can get together with a friend to fool around and get exercise at the same time." 
When students needed a break, they escaped to the outdoors to do so. 
Sophomore Heather Johnson remarked that she would blow bubbles to pass the 
time "because I refuse to grow up. and I am constantly amused by the simpler things 
in life." Other interesting forms of passing the time outside included hill rolling. 
When asked about his hill-rolling experience, sopho- 
more Mike Machura stated, "It was there. I was 
there. It just kind of happened." 

With a wide variety of activites 
planned throughout the year, ASAP encour- 
aged students to venture outside to enjoy 
many of their activities, such as Family Week- 
end, with its human bowling alley and gyro- 
scope, as well as the outdoor concerts by the 
Nudes and other groups. 

Having fun was another part of the 
college experience, one just had to go out and 
find it.

Marvin the Martian. Nose rings. Red roses. "No Fear" logos. What did 
all of these things have in common? They were all featured in the body art sported 
by Monmouth College students. While tattoos and exotic body piercing were not 
quite the norm on campus, their popularity grew day by day. 

Find someone with a tattoo and you'd find an interesting story about their 
experience. Asked about her tattoo, freshman Tyri Mitchell recalled that it was 
done by a man who "had his tongue and belly button pierced. He also had a tattoo 
of a tlaming skull on his earlobe. When I first saw that this guy was going to do my 
tattoo, I almost walked out of the place, but he turned out to be a pretty cool person." 

As far as the pain of the experience goes, most students reported that while 
it was a rather uncomfortable experience, it was bearable. "It felt like a really 
annoying sting," Mitchell continued, "but the guy that went with me to get one 
almost passed out. They had to get him a fan and a cold soda to calm him down." 

Since most parents were not a part of the current tattoo craze, many MC 
students have opted to keep their body decorations a secref'Something real funny 
about my tattoo is that the day after I got it, my dad was playing around and hit me 
on my right shoulder. I thought I was going to die," freshman Alicia Davis said. 

Another, less popular form of body art was 
exotic body piercing. Jewelry that was once 
restricted to ears was now turning up attached to 
noses and belly buttons. Sporting a belly 
button ring, junior Maggie Guseman 
remarked, "Body art has always intrigued me 
as a form of self-expression as long as I can 
remember, and I finally reached the point in 
life where I felt it was the most logical thing 
to do." When asked if her parents approved, 
Guseman replied, "My mom hates it. My dad 
has basically told me, 'Well, I'd rather see 
you do this than be a junkie.'"

A Mardi Gras Celebration in October? Well, that was the theme for 
Monmouth's Homecoming Weekend, and the festive atmosphere reminiscent of 
the theme pervaded much of the activity of the weekend, regardless of the grey, 
dreary weather. 

Spirited Homecoming activities for 1994 began when several of the Greek 
and residence halls hung the banners they had made. When asked about the banners, 
freshman Valeria Orozco said, "Making the Fulton Hall banner was a new 
experience for me. Fortunately, I had two art majors, Daria [Salus] and Karen 
[Bergstrand] to help." As much as everyone had worked on each and every banner, 
it was Sigma Phi Epsilon who won the first place honor for the banner contest. 

The festivities continued on Friday night with the annual bonfire. After 
a brief speech by Coach Kane to rally the football team together, the spirit shout was 
held. This year, top honors went to Pi Beta Phi for their shouts, which extolled the 
virtues of MC's football team. Because the Homecoming dance was canceled, the 
Homecoming court was announced at the bonfire. Smiling seniors Angelo Shaw 
and Stephanie M. Jones were voted Homecoming King and Queen. 

The parade, which was scheduled for Satur- 
day morning at 10:30, was canceled due to rair 
Freshman Melody Long said that she "was really 
disappointed the parade was canceled. They 
should have held it later in the day." Since the 
floats could not be judged during the parade, 
judging was held Monday afternoon by the 
football field. First place for the floats went 
to Kappa Kappa Gamma, whose pledge class 
created a giant jester' s hat, in keeping with the 
theme of Mardi Gras. 

Despite the gloomy weather on Sat- 
urday, Homecoming was a great success.

Homecoming excitement was in the air and pervaded the spirits of the 
Fighting Scots football and soccer teams as they led Monmouth to victory all 
weekend long. 

Despite the dreary weather, the football team won 14 to 10 over the 
formerly undefeated Illinois College Blueboys. The teams were tied 7 to 7 at the 
half, but a fieldgoal by IC gave them the lead until junior quarterback Sean Kane 
ran for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter. The Scots held the lead for the rest 
of the game. "We played extremely hard," noted sophomore fullback Brent Martin. 
"The crowd's cheers kept the spirit of the team way up and that helped a ton," 
remarked freshman offensive tackle Mike Reints. Fan Lisa Leombruni, junior, 
stated that "It was definitely worth all the rain to watch the team beat IC." Overall, 
the Homecoming victory was an exciting event everyone could celebrate. Except, 
perhaps, the other team. 

Another win for Monmouth was made by the men's soccer team, who beat 
Knox with an incredible score of 7 to 0. "It was over in the first two minutes," noted 
freshman defender Nicholas Rayola about the first two goals scored. After that, the 
determined Scots continued their rampage, leaving the 
Knox team with few chances to score. Freshman 
goalkeeper Jeff Sutton claimed thaf'Coach had 
told us that they [Knox] were going to be a tough 
team to beat, so I was surprised that we beat 
them as easily as we did." Coach Rue Carthew 
was "very pleased with the game. Everyone 
gave 100 percent." The MC fans were also 
pleased. As Knox was a big rival, the Home- 
coming defeat of the Prairiefire was espe- 
cially sweet. "Everyone's parents were there 
giving their support." commented senior 
sweeper Mark Childs.

What would happen when one hundred people from all walks of life were 
placed in one building to live for nine months? Chaos'?! Well, that too, but a dorm 
was created! And what made these dorms so special? The people who slept, 
showered, studied, and stressed out in these buildings. Dorms became second 
homes for most students, and everyone appreciated their building in different ways. 
When given the choice of being any item in her dorm, junior Amy Kreider 
of Grier chose "a fly, so I could go into everybody's rooms and hear them gossip." 
Freshman Ben Sangster from Winbigler said he would be "a toilet" so he could meet 
people from a different perspective. Junior Joey Jacobs of the SigEp house desired 
to be "the fire alarm, because I cause great excitement afterward." Sophomore 
Heidi Kuppler of Fulton chose to be the front door so she could "see who goes in 
and out at night." 

From the outside, the dorms appeared to be reserved, even docile, brick 
structures, but on the inside... one could never tell. Tales of crazy practical jokes 
and escapades were frequently heard on campus. Freshman Alicia Davis reported 
that she and her "totally nuts" friends left doors covered with toilet paper and 
shaving cream. That was the kind of stuff frequently chatted about by those sitting 
in the hallway of second floor McMike. Sangster summed 
up third floor Winbigler by saying, "We get fined a 
lot [because of] trails of shaving cream, over- 
flowing water fountains, and so many bottles 
and cans that we can't walk down the stair- 
well." ZBTs Mike Armstrong and Doug 
Stenfeldt described "some pretty good water 
fights, stair diving, goldfish eating, and ac- 
tivities we cannot mention because we don't 
want to incriminate ourselves." 

Not all of dorm life was wild and 
crazy though, and Kuppler, who was pleased 
that everyone "gets along pretty well," and 
that she "likes all the people," spoke for the

Off-campus programs were a great way to get involved in studies and 
cultures not available at Monmouth, and students jumped at the chance to partici- 
pate. These programs included semesters both within the country and without. 

For instance, senior Brian Chabowski was lucky enough to study in Costa 
Rica as part of the Latin American Cultural Studies Program. He lived with a host 
family, but spent some time on a rural trip. Chabowski claimed that his studies 
abroad "enhanced my topical major of International Studies." 

Mike Somers, a senior, was involved in the Washington Semester Program 
and participated in the Economic Policy Program. Somers enjoyed the experience 
and believed that it gave him a "much broader view of the world as a whole" and 
that it was the "ultimate course in application." 

Jennifer Foehner, a senior, learned Spanish while in Costa Rica to study 
the droppings of wild rabbits. "I actually had to go through their feces to collect 
seeds." recalled Foehner. 

Senior Tiffany Ramsey shared the story of an incident which occurred 
during her semester in the Czech Republic Program. She and fellow students were 
"accosted by a drunk Czech man who decided he was an airplane." Ramsey and 
Chabowski. who also participated in this program, were 
the first students from MC to participate in this 
program. Chabowski recalled an incident in which 
his bus crossed into Latvia one early morning. 
He was removed from the bus "amid heavily 
armed border guards" during the border search. 
"It was like something directly out of a Cold 
War spy movie," Chabowski claimed. 

The many off-campus programs 
available were a terrific opportunity to learn 
about other cultures, our own culture, and 
history in the making. All who participated 
thought their experiences worthwhile and 
would recommend off-campus programs to 
other students. by Gina Marie Tillman

been held by Fighting 
Scot Hall of Famer Pete 
Kovacks, who played 
for MC between 1951 
and 1955. 






College athletics have constantly sought 
to change the way they have been viewed, just as 
students have faithfully struggled to the physical 
challenges and fitness which sports participation 
demands. Along with the academic nourish 
ment, the college experience became balanced 
by an interest in sports, and students were pre- 
sented with ample ways to achieve this balance. 

Watching a game from the sidelines and 
cheering the Scots on to victory was also an 
essential part of the college experience. Students 
drew together to produce a sense of community 
as they gathered to root for a common cause. 
Whether cheering from the stands at the track or 
gathered in the gym or even out at the park, the 
Scots' fans were always to be found. "I think 
Monmouth offers a great addition to collegiate 
sports because we have so much to offer for such 
a small college," noted sophomore Mike Reed. 

Freshman Scott Bayer added that "sports 
at Monmouth mean a lot to me because it really 
gives me a chance to compete and be the best I can 
be." With all of the different sports and for 
whatever personal reason, MC sports were well- 
received by the students, as both avid participants 
and proud supporters.

The volleyball team had a very successful year with 
the addition of new head coach Mia Smith. Sophomore Kari 
Bailey was very complimentary in her praise of Smith. "She 
makes us want to work harder. She's great!" Coach Smith 
had similar things to say about her team. "I am very fortunate 
to have such talented and motivated players. I think we blend 
together as a unit and this is very important to be successful," 
said Smith. 

After looking back on the games, the team believed 
that they had a good season. They participated in several 
tournaments as well as played in their regular conference 
games. When asked about her feelings on the season, sopho- 
more Sara Erlandson commented that "as long as we play well 
and have fun," winning would come naturally. Senior Billie 
Jean Forrester agreed, stating that "I think we really played 
well as a team and if we cut down on some of our mental 
mistakes, we will be even more successful." 

Summing up the general good feelings and shows of 
confidence of the team toward the season, freshman Holly 
Messer stated proudly that "It felt fantastic to walk off the 
bench and score the winning point with an ace and have my 
teammates turn around and give me a winning smile."

dedication. Sophomore Heath Whitington "hated all the 
conditioning, but it was worth it to get the Turkey back." This 
strength was used in a variety of methods, helped along by a 
boost of adrenaline. As freshman Mike Reints recounted, 
"During a kick-off return block. I smashed a guy's face mask 
and that felt pretty good." 

Although strength and determination may have made 
the game, some of the players felt that it was the way they 
dressed that gave them that extra boost of confidence. Sopho- 
more Brock Sondcrgroth "always wore white socks with red 
bands." Freshman Brad Mandeville. however, "got dressed 
the same way for every game," just as he had done since he 
was in junior high. 

The Fighting Scots may have ended their season 
with four wins and five loses, but as sophomore offensive 
center Brian Welch noted, "the Turkey Bowl makes or breaks 
the season, and we kicked Knox's butt." byjenn Larson

team, but overall I was really satisfied with the way we 

The team did not have much time to prepare for their 
season, as their first game was scheduled soon after students' 
arrival to campus. Coach Simon Cordery remarked on the 
first game. "We worked well as a team for only having five 
days of practice. There is a great deal to be optimistic about." 
As the season progressed, the women began to play more 
efficiently as a team. 

The way the women's soccer team played well and 
pulled together showed promise for a strong future. Senior 
co-captain Abigail Fafoglia recalled that "we improve after 
every game, and I've noticed definite improvements." Over 
half of the team's members played for the first time this 
season, and as Fafoglia noted, "It's hard to teach someone 
everything there is to know about soccer" in one short season. 
However, the improvements these women made in their first 
season could mean a very promising future as a varsity sport.

The men's soccer team had an exciting year filled 
with talent and skill. Their overall record for the year was 10- 
5- 1 , and the entire group portrayed the spirit to help each other 
reach their full potential. Many of the returning players felt 
pressured to continue last year's great season, such as sopho- 
more Paul Evans. He commented that "I had been under 
pressure to maintain last year's standards and felt as if I was 
regaining last year's form." 

Freshman Ben Sangster noted that this was a young 
team, but felt that it had a strong future. "I thought it was a 
pretty good season, but I guess we could have made it farther. 
All in all, it was a good season," stated Sangster. 

Senior Mark Childs, co-captain, commented on the 
tough competition and constant struggle within the team to 
stay on top. He remarked that "there is competition from a lot 
of places this year and the players are being forced to push 
themselves during practice in order to win a starting position 
on the field." 

One of the top goals of the soccer team this year was 
to beat Knox College and this was accomplished twice during 
the season. The men' s soccer team had a tremendous year and 
struggled through the tough competition to become one of the 
best. by Mary Bjorkquist

"All the training and practices are tough, but we reap 
the benefits when it comes to Conference time," said fresh- 
man Matt Clemens. Or, in the words of cross country coach 
Chris Pio, training was "like money in the bank!" Everyday. 
the team went through a grueling practice. The results of their 
hard work were easy to see. Both the men and women placed 
well in all of their meets. Sophomore Caryn Brow stated that 
"enthusiasm and determination led the team to success." 

The team had a fabulous year, making history in 
Appleton at the Midwest Conference Championships. The 
men placed second and the women third, their "best combined 
effort in the program's history," noted Pio. 

However, cross country was not all work. Sopho- 
more Jason Johnson noted that "there's just something about 
running in the fall; it's always been fun for me." Fun or not, 
these teams had incredible potential, with eight underclass- 
men All-Staters. The teams also had a chemistry that allowed 
them to work well as a team and also to enjoy their trips 
together. Pio stated that "the team aspect is improving with 
each meet." 

Whatever the cross country team was doing, they

The cheerleading season this year exemplified en- 
ergy and spirit for the Fighting Scot's teams. In rain, sleet, 
sunshine, or hail the enthusiasm still lingered in the exciting 
atmosphere of a brutal and skillful Monmouth game. The 
cheerleading squad helped to stimulate the crowd to cheer on 
their team to a victory. Win or lose, the cheerleaders were 
there to the end! 

Freshman Beth Hemersbach, a Monmouth cheer- 
leader, shared her thoughts about the spirit of the squad. " The 
fans came up to us and told us how much we brought to the 
games." Also, Hemersbach had gained personal attributes 
from cheerleading. "Becoming a Monmouth College cheer-

hoping that the school will give us more support. The squad

The Fighting Scots' matmen. which consisted of one 
junior, one sophomore, and a supporting cast of freshmen, 
may not have finished at the top of the MWC. but by the end 
of the season, things were definitely looking up. Owing to 
head coach Mike Olson's fantastic recruiting, eight of the ten 
first string wrestlers had no collegiate wrestling experience. 
Despite the injuries and season results, the team members 
were very optimistic. 

"We are doing some good things even though we 
have had a lot of injuries. As long as we keep working hard, 
our goals will be accomplished." stated junior Dennis 
McMillan. Freshman Mark Patterson was just as optimistic. 
"Overall, this was a really good first outing for us as freshmen. 
We were able to make the transition from high school wres- 
tling to college," stated Patterson. "We are doing really well 
for as young as we are," noted freshman Andy Kerley. 

The wrestlers established a strong foundation for the 
future and they gained the knowledge of what it takes to 
succeed. The wrestlers justifiably contended that they were 
one of the hardest working athletic teams on campus, and this 
work ethic combined with the return of the entire roster could 
mean a terrific future.

This year the women's basketball team at Mon- 
mouth embodied the concepts of unity and spirit. The season 
was filled with excitement and energy. The Monmouth 
women's basketball team finished with a great season and an 
optimistic outlook on the future of the team. Seniors, Tina 
Forth, Patty Allen, and Tricia Kalb strived for excellence in 
skill and technique. 

Amy Ford, freshman, recalled the cohesive bond 
that the team formed and was looking forward to their future 
, " I think that we improved greatly and stuck together when 
times were tough. I'm looking forward to next season and I 
think that we will do okay with work and commitment." 

Senior Tricia Kalb described the team unity that the 
women fell both on the court and off. "It seems as though each 
game we take a better step at playing together as a team." Kalb 
stated. By the end of the season, that was exactly what the 
women were - a team that worked well together. 

Three women received conference honors at the end 
of the season, including Kalb, junior Vanessa Treat, and 
freshman Jill Schultz. Schultz stated that "It just shows what 
a great team we had [to have three women honored]." Overall, 
women's basketball was another team of which Monmouth 
College could be proud. by Mary Bjorkquist 









At practice, senior 
Lance Castle works 
hard to insure the accu- 
racy of his shots. The 
dedication paid off, as 
Castle became MC's 
lead scorer when he 
broke the lormercareer 
scoring record. 

Records came crashing clown left and right this year 
in one of the most spectacular seasons in men's basketball. 
The Scots lit up the scoreboard everywhere they went, amidst 
a flurry of no-look passes and three point jumpers. 

The Scots racked up an impressive 1 6-7 record, with 
an 1 1-3 record taking first place in the MWC South Division. 
Although the Scots were barely edged out of the MWC 
championships by Beloit on a slim 76-77 victory, the season 
was nonetheless outstanding. The team did, however, win the 
Wabash Invitational Tournament at Ripon, defeating Wabash 
and Olivet Nazarene. In fact, the Scot's only two losses 
during the first two months came from larger Division II 

In an incredible home game against Coe college, the 
Scots also snatched Monmouth's 1000th all-time win. 

One of the more heralded and amazing records that 
fell during the season was Lance Castle's shattering of the 
school career scoring record. The instant after the basket 
which put Castle over the top was scored, the game was halted 
and Castle was presented with the ball and the award. In a 
game against Grinnell, Castle also broke the 33-year-old 
game scoring record with 46 points.

The Scot's softball team was supercharged by a powerful 
new coaching staff and several fresh new faces. Head coach Mia 
Smith and assistant coach Kris Miller brought to the Lady Scots their 
knowledge of the game and sparked a fire on the Scot's offense. 

Some of the new fresher faces in the lineup were Amy 
Gavlinski and Delia Smith. Gavlinski provided switch hitting and 
some stability in the outfield while Smith helped out in the outfield 
as well with quick plays. 

The playing abilities of these two and other freshmen, 
combined with the experience of veterans like Julie Crisco and 
Melinda Mendez brought a excellent offense and eager defense to 
Monmouth softball. Junior Heather Stasiask also contributed, add- 
ing more hitting power to the Scot's offense. 

Jul iePuckett. a junior transfer and captain, contributed her 
share of hours as a pitcher for the Scots, whizzing heat down the 
plate. Jill Martin returned for another admirable season from her 
previous all-conference selection to spend her fair share of time on 
the mound as well. 

Although the season began with a series of cancellations 
due to inclement weather, the spirit of the team stayed as strong as 
ever and was evident as they swept their doubleheader at Mt. St. 
Claire College and again at McMurray.

"We've got six or seven juniors with some winning 
years and a bunch of rookies," was how captain Craig Foxall, 
junior, described the makeup of the Scots' baseball team. 

When the season started, manager Roger Sander did 
not know how strong the pitching would be. However, 
returnee sophomore Todd Briggs and freshmen Brandon 
Maxwell and Dirk Trotter made the pitching staff tough. 
According to captain junior Dave Bratten, "The pitching was 
really good." The other captains were senior Mike Blaesing 
and junior Sean Kane. These men were the backbone of the 
team, but the freshmen had their chance to shine as well. For 
instance. Maxwell was credited with the Scots' win against 
Teikyo Marycrest University. The win followed a disap- 
pointing loss to Augustana the week before and was therefore 
especially welcome. 

The team played a tough schedule, but were well 
prepared after training over the spring break in Florida. The 
men played eight games over break against other area teams 
who traveled to Panama City as well. The team continued to 
improve throughout the conference season, as well. 

The fiercely competitive Sander explained that "This 
is a very inexperienced team that has surprised me at times and 
played like a veteran team." by Ben Yackley

The Fighting Scots' women's track team worked hard and 
pushed themselves in order to do well, and the results were astound- 
ing. During their indoor season, head coach Chris Pio stated that 
"They performed well... and showed that we are just about ready for 
the conference championship meet." The women placed second at 
the meet, less than six points behind the champions. 

Freshman Rachel Poirier set a new school record in the 
200m hurdles with a time of 33.09 at the meet, although she did not 
place. Freshman Rita McQuinn noted that "It is very competitive out 
there, so we push ourselves, and try to raise our own personal records 
a little more than we did before." 

To begin the outdoor season, the women placed third at the 
Western Illinois University Open. Senior Christine Stanton re- 
marked, "We ran against some tough competition, but the challenge 
only makes us better at what we do." 

The women continued the season to win the Monmouth 
Relays and the Knox Invitational. They went on to Nationals, 
breaking records all the way. Freshman Jennifer Koranda broke the 
MC record in the 800m with a time of 2:25 at the Grinnell DeLong 
Classic. Stacy Brown, freshman, also qualified provisionally for the 
NCAA Outdoor Championship in the 100m dash. Hard work paid 
off as the women's track team had another successful year.

Consistency was a big factor for many track and field 
events. The same task must be performed over and over to 
make motions smooth and fluid. The team dedication and 
persistence carried over into furthering a long winning tradi- 
tion this year. Freshman Bob Lindstrom summed up the 
experience of being on the team by saying, "I was proud and 
honored to be on a track team that has a very long winning 
tradition and surrounded by team members who care about the 
whole team." 

The indoor season for the men's team was very 
successful, as they accomplished their goal of becoming the 
conference champions through the efforts of the whole team. 
One team member who stood out was freshman David Th- 
ompson. He broke not only conference records, but also many 
Monmouth records, including long jump (2-T00.5") and the 
200m (22.70). Other first place finishers at the conference 
meet were Phil Lark in the high jump, Lindstrom in the shot 
put, and the record-breaking 4x200 team. 

The outdoor season promised to be just as success- 
ful, and the team saw some great work during Easter break, 
when they traveled to SIU at Edwardsville for a meet. Al- 
though there were no scores kept, the Scots viewed the 
experience as invaluable. by Chad Briggs

Freshmen and other 
new students wander 
on the Dunlap Terrace 
during the activities 
fair. The activities fair 
allowed students to sec 
what Monmouth had to 
offer in the way of 
clubs, activities, and 
just plain fun. 


When students first arrived on campus 
their first year, they were told that it would be 
beneficial to get involved. The activities fair at 
the beginning of each year attested to this, as 
each group set up their table and invited students 
to ask questions and sign up for more informa- 
tion. From Student Association to International 
Club, there was a club for every student to join. 

Joining organizations was a great way to 
meet new people who shared similar interests 
and even not-so-similar interests. Cari Klein, 
freshman, claimed that joining her sorority pro- 
vided her with "some of my closest friends." 

For sophomore Stephen Baxter, it was 
the stage that called to him, and he quickly 
became involved in the theater. He noted that 
"Being on stage is electrifying. The thrill of all 
eyes on you is the biggest rush for me." Baxter's 
expression of himself on the stage was akin to 
many others' ideas of expression, but each found 
it in their own organization. 

No matter the individual or the organiza- 
tion, the sense of making a difference and being 
active on campus appealed to many, and it was 
these students who kept Monmouth College 
alive and active in various arenas.

The Beta Gamma Chapter of 
Kappa Delta had a tremendous year! To 
begin, they had the wonderful experi- 
ence of installing a brand new Alumnae 
Advisory Board in September. Their 
AAB was a vital part of their growth, as 
it was a liaison to 
national headquar- 
ters, as well as a 
help to Kappa 
Delta during Rush 
and with their an- 
nual Philanthropy. 
In October, they 
traveled to West- 
ern Illinois Uni- 
versity to meet the 
Alpha Tau Omega 
fraternity with 
their "Wild. Wild 

West" exchange. That night proved to 
be quite memorable after playing "The 
Dating Game," which consequently 
paired some KDs and ATOs up as 
couples! Despite December's final ex- 
ams, they anxiously awaited January, 
which brought the return of senior Tif- 

fany Ramsey home from her semester in 
the Czech Republic. 

Once second semester began, 
senior Tammee Higbee passed the gavel 
on to junior Karin Fredrickson as the 
new chapter president. In March, five 
members jaunted 
over the Missis- 
sippi to be on Paula 
Sands Live to pro- 
mote their annual 
Shamrock Project. 
The Kappa Deltas 
swung for 24 hours 
nonstop in their 
raising a pretty 
penny for the 
Monmouth Com- 
munity and the National Committee to 
Prevent Child Abuse. Before they knew 
it, commencement arrived, and it was 
time for the ten seniors to say "Good- 
Bye" to the Beta Gamma chapter of 
Kappa Delta!

The brothers of Sigma Phi Ep- 
silon were formed in 1901 at Richmond 
College in Richmond. Virginia and made 
their appearance at Monmouth College 
on May 22nd. 1948. 

The men had many traditions 
which they en- 
joyed. One of 
these was their 
participation in 
various philan- 
thropies. They 
conducted soccer 
clinics for area 
kids through the 
YMCA and also 
helped in tutorial 
programs in some 
of the elementary 
schools. The men 

of SigEp also supported several Kiwanis 

Another tradition was that of 
the Homecoming cookout. Alumni re- 
turned every fall to watch the football 
game from up on the fraternity complex 

hill and enjoy some roast pig with the 
current actives. The annual "Go To 
Hell" party was a tradition the entire 
campus was able to enjoy, and most 
students dressed in their Halloween best 
(or worst) to dance the night away. 

When asked 
why he accepted 
the bid SigEp ex- 
tended to him 
when he joined 
four years ago, se- 
tt i or Todd 
Stevenson remem- 
bered that "some- 
thing just clicked" 
at the parties which 
attracted him. Jun- 
ior Bob Grimm 
stated that "the 
people who make up our fraternity are a 
special group of people who are very 
diverse and thus provide a challenging 
and supportive environment. I cannot 
imagine my life without the brothers of 
SigEp." by Gina Marie Tillman

The story of the Epsilon Nu 
chapter of Alpha Tau Omega at Mon- 
mouth College began in 1947 when a 
local fraternity. Pi Kappa Phi, petitioned 
to become a part of ATO. The chapter 
enjoyed continued success for a very 
long time after 
that. In recent 
years, though, the 
story became a 
troubled one. 

ing debts to the 
national fraternity 
coupled with a 
sharp decline in 
new membership 
caused the chapter 
to come to the 
brink of failure. In 

fact, by the end of the 1993 academic 
year, the chapter had had its national 
charter suspended, accululated a debt of 
over $8,000, and lost the house due to 
needed repairs and remodeling. 

As of the spring of 1995, the 
chapter had nineteen active members. 

four junior initiates, and seven new 
pledges. The brothers conducted four 
philanthropies in the community each 
semester, including a Halloween clothes 
drive, visits to the local nursing homes, 
and a golf outing which raised money 
for the Warren 
Center. So far, all 
of the members of 
the chapter have 
been initiated at 
ATO national 
headquarters, with 
whom the house is 
in constant con- 

H* With the 

dedication of the 
chapter's new 
members, it was clear that ATO on the 
Monmouth campus was not dead. Al- 
though much work remained, such as 
the renovation of the old ATO house, 
the members remained optimistic about 
the future.

Kappa Kappa Gamma was 
founded as the first sorority at Mon- 
mouth College on October 13th, 1870. 
The Alpha chapter has been active on 
campus ever since. 

The women participated in 
many activities all 
year, including 
Christmas carol- 
ing at the local 
nursing homes as 
well as participat- 
ing in reading pro- 
grams at some of 
the area elemen- 
tary schools. 
Sophomore Kim 
Bruetsch found 
this program par- 
ticularly fun, not- 
ing that "the children are all really sweet 
and it's a lot of fun to read to them." 

The annual Kappa Golf Tour- 
ney was also a lot of fun and was held for 
a good cause. The Tourney was held at 
Gibson Woods and attracted many stu- 
dents. It benefited the Warren Achieve- 

ment Center, UNICEF, and Willits El- 
ementary School. Sarah Vayo, sopho- 
more, recalled that "it was so much fun 
to get outdoors and watch everyone en- 
joy themselves at the Golf Tourney. It 
was relaxing and for a great cause." 

The women 
of Kappa Kappa 
Gamma also knew 
what it took to 
achieve sister- 
hood. They par- 
ticipated in several 
different programs 
and special activi- 
ties which were 
designed to create 
a cohesiveness be- 
tween the women 
of the sorority that 
would be hard to break. Many of the 
freshmen women who accepted the bid 
of Kappa Kappa Gamma found that in 
this special sisterhood, lasting friend- 
ships were formed which they knew 
would be hard to break.

Zeta Beta Tau was founded 
nationwide in 1898. In 1968, the frater- 
nity colonized on the Monmouth Col- 
lege campus and received a charter on 
May 25. 1971. 

ZBT had a strong background 
in philanthropic 
activity on the MC 
campus, which il- 
lustrated their be- 
lief in their pur- 
pose. Two of their 
most important 
were the Harding 
School Kidz Club 
and the Arthritis 
Foundation. For 
the Kidz Club, 
brothers were sent 

to Harding Grade School to participate 
in after-school recreation with under- 
privileged children. In conjunction with 
ARAMARK food service, forty minia- 
ture basketballs were donated to this 
group. The ZBT annual bowl-a-thon 
benefited another recognizable charity 

organization, the Arthritis Foundation. 
Zeta Beta Tau was the first 
national fraternity to eliminate 
pledgeship and implement the brother- 
hood program in 1989. On a recent visit 
to the chapter. National Traveling Con- 
sultant Joel Wyatt

"To continually make strange the famil- 
iar and familiar the strange, to make uncomfort- 
able — that is our task. What we are, where we 
are, and who we are can best be seen by one who 
has moved from the inside to the out." This was 
the way junior Max Simmons viewed education. 

In college the "traditional" way of look- 
ing at things was questioned and challenged by 
what was learned. College was where things 
which were once accepted at face value were 
questioned for the first time. 

"It was this questioning which changed 
one's mind into an entity capable of percieving 
and understanding the world on a global scale," 
noted junior Gary Moore. 

This was the purpose behind college- 
level academics. We learned to reevaluate our 
knowledge and incorporated it with the new. We 
discovered that it was necessary to broaden our 
views to become a functional member of society. 

"If critical thinking skills were not estab- 
lished at this stage of the learning process, the 
chances are that the student would be ill-equipped 
to face the real world," stated sophomore Duncan 
McPherson. At college, those skills were a 
requirement for everyone involved.

speaker E. Charles 
Chatfield. Jr. talks to 
the graduating class 
about the obstacles they 
will encounter after 
leaving Monmouth. 
Chatfield graduated 
from Monmouth in 

With graduation came various moods. 
The stress of the last final was replaced with an 
overwhelming relief, as well as a sadness. Say- 
ing Good-Bye to Monmouth College was hard 
for most seniors as they packed their bags just 
one last time. 

In college, the everyday stress of papers, 
exams, and presentations combined with the 
weekend parties and friendships to culminate in 
a memorable experience which many would 
never, and could never, forget. However, the 
"real" world awaited the graduating seniors. 
Papers were replaced with bills and homework 
with office work, but the friendships formed at 
Monmouth would last. 

The end of four years at Monmouth also 
meant the beginning of a life after school. Many 
students planned weddings, others went on to 
graduate programs, and many more entered the 
workforce confident that MC prepared them for 
their new atmosphere. Perhaps a bit wary, gradu- 
ates could only hold on for the ride. 

The sadness many felt at leaving friends 

and the home they had known for four years far 

behind was tinged with the excitement of a new 

life, a new environment, and a new perspective .

Monmouth College would not amount to 
much without its student body, those who made 
college a vibrant, social place to learn and to 
have fun. From eager freshmen to knowledge- 
able seniors, all were special to Monmouth just 
as Monmouth was special to them. 

Lisa Rood, a freshman, explained that 
she came to Monmouth because she felt that it 
could offer her "an excellent education." Rood 
also emphasized the personal attention she re- 
ceived from her professors. "Each professor was 
always willing to spend extra time with me when 
I needed help," Rood reflected. 

Freshman Josh Fellers was impressed by 
the low teacher student ratio and felt that the 
small class size lent to a "more personal under- 
standing of my subjects." 

Trina Medol, sophomore, was excited 
about the fact that Monmouth offered a liberal 
arts education and also enjoyed the small size 
that "allowed me to meet new people on its 
beautiful campus." 

While Monmouth College was a fine 
institution unto itself, it was the students and 
their active interest in the campus that has al- 
lowed MC to flourish throughout the years.

Angus McMillan, se- 
nior, leads the ceremo- 
nies marking the start 
of the school year. 
McMillan was a mem- 
ber of the Highlanders 
and often played at 
functions such as the 
Homecoming parade 
and football games. 
Bagpipes were once 
used to mark the start 
of Scots' Day. until its 
format was changed. 




The end of the year meant the promises 
of letters and phone calls, perhaps even visits to 
new and old friends alike. The relief of summer 
vacation arrived, and cars were packed up for the 
long trek home. 

During that car ride, did you remember 
to reflect on the last school year? The person 
who moved in last fall became someone very 
different in the course of eight months, and the 
graduate making the ultimate final journey had 
changed even more. It was our experiences at 
Monmouth College which were responsible for 
these changes. 

The first party we attended as an "inno- 
cent" freshman meant something very different 
from the last big hurrah, and the experiences we 
allowed ourselves affected us in different ways. 
The friends and the parties, the teachers and the 
late-night cram sessions had their effect on us as 
we realized (with surprise?) that our future was 
in our own hands. Adulthood was upon us 
before we knew it, and our college experience 
was what we had put into it. Life will be that 
way, too. 

Stop and smell the roses, as they say. 
Make life worth living, and make it happen for 
you. by Gina Marie Tillman
