DOCTOR DONALD E. WALKER AND MRS. ANN L WALKER TESTIMONIAL DINNER for MRS. and PRESIDENT DONALD WALKER On August 8, 1333 a Testomonial Dinner was held on behalf of ivirs. Ann L. mid President Donald E. Walker. Organized o/ over 60 U university jjersonnei, colleagues, area merchants, community' leaders, iocai politicians and graterul admirers, the Walker Testimonial was one way to say thank you ic a couple who have given so much of themselves to others. The organizing committee conceived not only a ceremonial dinner, but also a SMU Walker Merit Scholarship to encourage and reward academic excellence and intellectual drive at Southeastern M assach usetts U niversity. To assure that meariingful scholarship awards could oe niade each year, the committee determined that an endowment of at least $50,000 would be needed. Thus, $50,000 was set as the initial goal for a scholarship fund drive. This goal was met and surpassed wltn ease as thankful Menus, associaies and goodwiilers exhibited their appreciation for all that the Walkers have done for SMU and the community. Born in Missouri, the son of a college professor, Donald E. Walker has spent his entire life on, or near college campuses. His professional career included endeavors as a professor, dean of counseling and testing, dean of students, and academic vice-president. Three times he has been the leader of academic institutions: first as president of \daho State University; then as acting president of San Diego State University; and finally as president of Southeastern Massachusetts University. He has now returned to California, a state where he has spent the greater part of his career, to assume his fourth roie as the president of tne Grossmoni Community College District in San Diego. rie has shared th<s wealth of experience net only with his colleagues at SiViU but with academic leaders throughout the country. He lias been in constant demand as a speaker before national groups of college presidents and other academic administrators, nis book. The Effective Administrator: A Practical /Approach w Problem-Solving, Decision-Making, and Campus Leadership" is widely used as a textbook in classes and seirunars on academic administration. His knowieage extends well Deyond the confines of his profession, however. A licensed psychologist, he also holds s Masters Degree in Theology and a Doctor axe Degree from Stanford in Sociology. He is an avid reader in such disparate fields as medicai science, detective novels, and poeiry. His consulxative style of ieauership, his inventive metaphors, his good humor and his humane concern for ah were a few of the qualities tnat have made him sucn a well respected and loved man at SMU. Attending the Farewell Testimonial Dinner for the Walkers were a host of prestigious personalities. The ceremony began with a slide presentation that documented the Walkers' history at SMU titled 'The Walker Years. " Below are among the guest speakers who said their good-byes and expressed their graticude from the left: serving as T oastmastei , Associate Dean of Students, Donald C. Howard; from the SMU Board of Trustees, Chairman Paul McCawley; Joseph Bronstad; SMU Student Trustee, Mark Montigny; Massachusetts Chancellor for the Board of Regents of Higher Education, Dr. John Duff; Governor of Massachusetts, the Honorable Michael S. Dukakis; presenting the SMU gift, President-elect, Dr. William Wiide; from the SMU Board of Trustees, Bernard Baker; and President of the SMU Foundation, William Long. Although it can trace its roots back to just beyond the turn of the century, SMU is young as a university. This is easily seen when one considers the figures during the tenure of Dr. Donald E. Walker. When Dr. Walker arrived in 1972, he became the University's second president. At that time the enrollment was about 4,000, the alumni numbered about 5,000 and the budget for the university was nearly $6.5 million. Upon his departure in 1983, the enrollment was over 5,300, the alumni figure was more than 16,000, and the budget swelled to nearly $19 million. What was primarily a commuter campus had become one-fourth live-in dorm students. Dr. Walker arrived on a bitterly divided campus and much of his early efforts went into healing past wounds and helping people to work together effectively, building a shared governance system. Dr. Walker worked out a plan to develop the University into what it is today. He did so by increasing SMU 's contacts and interactions with surrounding communities; augmenting fringe benefits for faculty; developing "clear and just" personnel policies "subscribed to by all"; completing a self-examination of the institution, its goals and purposes, beginning with the departments and moving on to the colleges; establishing regularized and humane personnel procedures; improving financial support; collecting campus and community perspectives on the institution and the constituencies of the University to become better acquainted and shifting resources into high demand areas while maintaining a balance of liberal arts. Faced with more than his share of budget problems, Dr. Walker continually stood up to possible budget decreases. Twice he saw the University faced with crises of "considerable magnitude" as serious cutbacks were proposed. Emphasizing the careful management of resources and motivating a cooperative effort with the community and the University, President Walker managed to keep budget cuts at a minimum. A portion of the list of achievements and new programs developed during the 1 1 years include: the Small Business institute, Small Business Development Center and the Center for Business Activity — all aimed at providing counselling and expertise to area business and industry; the Computer Science, Computer Engineering and Computer Fluency 8 programs were developed and enlarged; the Arnold M Dubin Labor Education Center was created to improve the quality of working life in the community; Project Excel which provides a program for gifted high school students; the Broad Fields Studies Program which encourages faculty to develop innovative, inter- disciplinary courses and programs and the University's participation in efforts to attract new industry to the region. Dr. Donald E. Walker's leadership extended throughout the community as well as throughout the University. Through his stability, fairness, skillful diplomacy, paternalistic concern for and determined advocacy of the needs of both SMU faculty and students, he won the admiration and cooperation of everyone at the University, the people of Southeastern Massachusetts and the state government. From these people and especially from the Class of 1983, we thank you Mrs. Ann Walker and Dr. Donald Walker we wish you the best of life, always. SOUTHEASTERN MASSACHUSETTS UNIVE • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • RSITY • m • • ■■■ \ / V jr x f X •X X SMU: A SYNOPSIS Southeastern Massachusetts University is a publicly supported coeducational institution of higher learning. It is fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. SMU has assumed three major responsibilities as a University: instruction, research, and service to the larger community of which it is a subsidary society. Its varied curricula are predicated on the belief that nothing is truly learned until it has been intergrated with the purposes of the individual, for facts and principles can never serve any worthy human purpose unless they are restrained and guided by character. The University earnestly endeavors to provide a climate which will contribute to the development of balanced individuals of wider personal contacts and interest as well as quickened imaginations and disciplined intelligence. At SMU, the (1982-1983) undergraduate enrollment was approximately 5,300, and the individual remained an individual. This quality is essential to the realization of SMU's basic educational aim: to assist all students in identifying their major areas of interest, and so enable them to pursue undergraduate curricula that will most effectively match their talents to their goals, in both the immediate academic sense, and the longer range considerations of their lives and careers. This same atmosphere is also a major attraction for faculty members, who come to SMU in order to be able to practice the art of teaching through close personal contact with students, as well as to carry out research or engage in graduate-level seminar-type instruction. The full time faculty numbers 297 during the yeear 1983, with over 75 percent terminally qualified, i.e. with the doctorate or its equivalent in their respective disciplines. The extent to which the close student- faculty interaction ideal is a working reality is reflected in the average class size of 25 students. The excellence of the "teaching faculty" was given special recognition in a recent report by the regional accreditation agency. Many students found that the most salient reason for attending SMU is its ability-and eagerness-to experiment, to innovate, to listen attentively. The University not only actively seeks to find out what programs and courses its students need and want, but insists on creating them in conformity with the highest academic standards. Thus, what happens at SMU is very largely determined by the interests, the goals, and the ambitions of its students. The absence of long established traditions to fall back on has made possible an atmosphere in which spontaneity, relevancy, the new, and the untried are not seen as threats but as opportunities — an atmosphere very much of "why not" rather than "why." SMU offers its students an opportunity for genuine self-discovery, for broad learning in the various academic disciplines, and for the chance to combine these with the acquisition of practical skills leading to definite career capabilities. SMU is a blend of the practical and the visionary in which the vital connecting link is, and will continue to be, the individual's ability, determination, integrity, and imagination. The words "practical" and "visionary, " describe the kind of students that are conducive to SMU; practical men and women who have goals in life, and who know that no worthwhile goal is arrived at without exploration, experimentation, and a mastery of basic skills; and students who are visionary not only in the sense of dreaming bold dreams as they plan a career and a lifetime in a world of incredibly expanding opportunity and challenge, but who also have a willingness to blaze the trails and perform the hard work required to translate their dreams into reality, and the ability and record of past achievement which are essential in this effort. SMU's basic premise-that an educational institution must combine excellence with the specific, practical needs of those it would educate-also finds expression in its community programs. Many graduates find employment in local business and industry, SMU is working closely with these groups, both to provide "feedback" to its students about changes in a given career area, and to fulfill its goal of actively contributing to all aspects of life in the southeastern Massachusetts community. A comparable commitment to enriching the cultural life of the region is expressed through SMU's numerous programs and activities, including concert series, art exhibits, lectures, dramatic productions and other events which are made available to the public. Southeastern Massachusetts Technological \institute was created in 1960 by an act of the General Court on the recommendation of the Governor to provide a diversified educational program for the Southeastern Massachusetts area and for the Commonwealth. In enacting this legislation, the General Court directed that SMTI assume the responsibilities of two existing colleges in the area — Bradford Durfee College of Technology and the New Bedford \nstitute of Technology, both of which had been established in 1895. As a result of this enriching diversification of curricular offerings, Governor Francis B. Sargent of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts signed into law at the Commencement Exercises, June 9 1969, a bill advocating a change of name from Southeastern Massachusetts Technological \nstitute to Southeastern Massachusetts University. Thus, on September 7, 1969, the Institute officially became a University. Southeastern Massachusetts University is situated on a wooded 710-acre site in Dartmouth, a town of 23,000. The concept for the University's national award winning campus was created by architect Paul Rudolph. The campus design is the personification of the SMU character "why not." 14 These institutions were consolidated into SMTI in 1964 and since that time the \nstitution has been engaged in an intensive program of development. One aspect of this development has been enrichment of the curriculum. In September of 1965, baccalaureate degree programs in the humanities and social science were instituted to complement existing programs in engineering, the sciences, business administration, textile technology and the fine and applied arts. 15 Photos: K. Santos SMU: A SOCIETY One's education obviously does not begin and end with the classroom. It is the application of classroom theories, ideas and teachings in everyday encounters that becomes the criteria for an individual's education. This in mind, various clubs and organizations at SMU bring well known personalities from numerous fields of interest to the campus, not only for the education of students but for the SMU community as well. A multitude of students and community members took advantage of the opportunities presented by the diverse personalities that visited the campus during the year. From among the miscellaneous scopes, one specific field that produced an abundance of lectures at SMU was the political circle. Candidates and politicians alike came to SMU for exposure; input; reciprocation; or to voice policies, opinions, and ideals. Two consistent sponsors on campus were the SMU Lecture Series and the student-run organization, the Political Science Association. Voted "most effective freshman Congressman" by his colleagues, Barney Frank, in his campaign for U.S. Representative for the fourth district 16 On the left is U.S. Representative Gerry Studds, on the right, Ted Kennedy, Jr. with Student Trustee Mark Montigny and Associate Dean of Student Life, Donald Howard. spoke to a Campus Center crowd on October 14. Congressman Frank was involved in a closely watched race that pitted him against Margaret Heckler as a result of redistricting. Rep. Frank spoke of his positions on F\eckler, President Reagan, government spending, and the role of a Congressman. A firm opponent of excessive military buildup, Frank expressed his stand as a proponent of responsible funding for higher education. As part of the Nuclear Freeze Week, the U.S. Representative Gerry Studds lectured at SMU in the Campus Center. A co- sponsor of a nuclear freeze measure in Congress, Studds criticized the government's continual spending on nuclear arms, he stated "Reagan is challenging the Soviets to an arms race, instead of a nuclear freeze. " Rep. Studds stressed the reality of a nuclear war, and the necessity of working against it "not for two weeks, but for two years." One of the most notable achievements of the PSA and the Lecture Series was their co-sponsoring of state and local candidates and gubernatorial candidates on campus. This series put candidates in direct contact with their constituency and gave voters the opportunity to learn first- hand about their political representatives. Among those who visited the campus campaigning for office were lieutenant governor candidate John Kerry and on behalf of his father, Ted Kennedy Jr. lectured to the SMU audience. Broadening the spectrum of educational lectures were an assortment of special interest speakers. While each of these guests were appealing to their sponsors and related interest groups, they were also offering enlightenment to the general audience. The nature of these lectures become the essence of a university education for those who take full advantage of the opportunities. Above, Tom Jackson makes a point with audience member Kathy Tewig. On the right is Ralph Nader. On November 9, Russell Means, a leader of the American Indian Movement, came to SMU to try to "disprove at least 491 years of lies" about his people and to discuss contemporary industrial society. Addressing a standing room only crowd, Means was at times angry, at times humorous, but he was mostly solemn while talking of the plight of his people. Speaking out against reservations ("concentration camps") and "the adoption of one out of every four of our children," he concluded that the white man's treatment of Indians has been a genocide. A strong advocate of women's rights, he commented on the basic injustice of returning human privileges that should have never been taken away in the first place. March 31st marked the discussion with the author of Guerilla Tactics in the Job Market, Tom Jackson. Mr. Jackson spoke of the "in's" and "out's" of the job market, offering sound advice and suggestions for soon-to-be graduates and for those who may be thinking of a career move. \n the SMU Auditorium on April 19, Ralph Nader, America's "leading consumer", brought his social commentary to the attention of southeastern Massachusetts. Mr. Nader focused on the "function of student activism during the Reagan years" and "consumer involvement" in activist groups and projects such as Mass PIRG. The consumer activist posed the question, "why go to school?" These days, he said, education is giving people "job skills, as defined by big corporations. If education were teaching skills for the (betterment) of the economy, we would have more jobs generating small businesses." He encouraged student involvement but warned that "Political Activist groups in schools are constantly confronted with opposition." He pointed out that "the students are the risk takers." Today, he said, "students should realize what a great impact they can have on people. Students are the peak of idealism. They know where to get information and they gather together more easily. 17 SOUTHEASTERN MASSACHUSETTS REGIONAL ECONMIC DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE >UTHEASTERN ^SACHUSETTS REGIONAL ECONOMIC EVELOPMENT INFERENCE SMU plays a vital role in the economic life of the region through its colleges and facilities which make professional and teaching services available to commerce and industry. For this reason, the University proudly hosted the first Southeastern Massachusetts Regional Economic Development Conference on January 20. Present at the conference were: Governor Michael Dukakis and his cabinet; Lt. Governor John Kerry; U.S. Representative Barney Frank; regional mayors; local labor and civic leaders; university members; and concerned citizens. All had come to discuss the area's oppressive problems candidly in the first open forum of such magnitude ever held in southeastern Massachusetts. Beginning with speeches, the conference soon broke up into four separate workshops consisting of the Governor's cabinet. Within these workshops, questions were fielded, issues debated and plans formulated by the cabinet and the conference attendees. Such recognition from the state house made it a big day for SMU. Governor Dukakis stated that SMU will play a 18 critical role in fabricating a regional strategy to encourage economic development in the area. Being the only university in the region, Dukakis states that SMU should serve as the "centerpiece" for any economic development. The governor said he will seek to encourage the location of high tech firms in the area by building up SMU. ' ' This university is an absolutely indespensible ingredient to the future of this region as a place where knowledge based economic growth can occur. It's a good university now, and we're going to work together to make it a great university — a center for computer literary training, a home for co-operative research and development programs with knowledge- based industries, and a symbol that this region is ready for its economic future," stated Governor Dukakis. SMU was chosen as the conference site not only because of its location and facilities but also in recognition of its expanding partnership with the region in solving its economic problems. SMU has involved itself not only in serving the existing business community, it also played a major role in the effort to bring new high-tech industry to the area. This conference placed SMU at the start of a new and irrevocable relationship with the region of southeastern Massachusetts that is fully backed by the state government. HUMAN RIGHTS WEEK Being a cultural center, SMU is looked upon by the community as a harbinger for civil and human rights. Recognizing this responsibility, SMU acknowledges February as Black Awareness Month and chooses this month in which to hold its own Human Rights Week from the 14th to the 18th of February. Organizers referred to Human Rights Week as "a celebration of the unique similarities and differences of human kind." The affair featured a variety of lectures, films, workshops and performances intended to expose some of human kind's similarities and differences. One of the week's highlights was a lecture on "Human Rights in the 1980's" by John G. Healy, executive director of Amnesty International. Amnesty International was the recipient of the 1977 Nobel Peace Prize. The group is a world wide human rights movement which works impartially for the release of prisoners of conscience who have neither used or advocated violence. The feature highlight of the week was a lecture by Pulitzer Prize winning author Alex Haley. Mr. Haley's book, Roots, was the biggest best seller in U.S. publishing history. His lecture was centered on "The Family and Human Rights." He discussed the origin of prejudice in children, all alike in innocence, who receive impressions from society. He told of how children learn names for people and attach adjectives and nicknames that they hear other people use, "we tend, so many of us, without ever really thinking about it, to grow up and become adults and go across the whole of our lives, very often entertaining some entirely erroneous, fallacious impression of a whole group or groups of people who we never know really, for ourselves, anything about. "What we need so desperately to know above everything else at all is, we need so desperately to know about each other. "In this country, the various groupings that we have, we spend so much time, so much energy, pointing out the differences between us that we're almost obscured to how alike we are." Below left: John Healy, left and below: Black Student Union members present Alex Haley with a token of their love, admiration and appreciation. 19 COMMUNITY AWARENESS WEEK 20 *£*?' In an effort to promote public awareness of the various activities and services SMU makes available to the community, SMU Community Awareness Week was organized as an annual event. Running from April 23 to May 1, the week is a condensed version of what takes place at the University year round and gives the community a taste of what SMU is all about. Student organizations play a major role in the event by sponsoring and organizing the different activities throughout the week. The week of events began with the SMU Veterans' Club sponsored Special Olympics. The word special not only describes the Olympics; the dozens of athletes who participated in the games; the many students who volunteered their time, effort, and love; it also describes the unforgettable feeling of satisfaction experienced by everyone there. The first ever Special Olympics at SMU was a monumental success because of excellent planning and volunteer work by SMU students. Throughout the week, the campus was open to all visitors to come and enjoy themselves. There was plenty of activity for people of all ages. A Space Colloquium featured a full day of movies, talks, and exhibits about space. The SMU Micro Computer Expo exhibited computer graphics by SMU students; demonstrations and workshops by faculty members and displays of computer packages. The first annual Faculty and Student Research Exposition brought more •Vt ,.'■.'■" Dai — ta than 50 student and faculty research projects together from all over the University. Lectures, concerts, art exhibitions, films, hot air balloon rides, face painting, and a mime show by Trent Arterberry, and were among the host of free activities that occurred all week. A special feature of the week was a lecture by world-acclaimed TV personality Barbara Walters. Ms. Walters shared memories of her "unexpected" fame in a 1 Vi hour long lecture. As she discussed many of the highs and lows of her career, her personality revealed a sensitive soft- spoken woman with a light, quick tone. Her history making interviews included: the first joint interview with President Anwar Sadat and Prime Minister Begin; the first interview with Richard Nixon after he left office, an interview with the former Shah of Iran; and a 15 hour interview with Cuban leader Fidel Castro. After her lecture, Ms. Walters allowed questions from the audience during which she was asked whom she thought were the greatest male and female people in the nation. To which she replied, "The handicapped and those who work with them. They are the greatest!" ^*w 21 SMU: A COMMUNITY 23 Student Senate 24 Board of Governors 25 Student Judiciary Resident Halls Congress 26 Black Student Union 27 \nner Space Society international Travel and Study Luso-American Students Association Jewish Student Center 28 MASS Pirg 29 Music Guild Newman Association Outing Club 30 Phi Psi 3 1 Program Council 38 Student Advisory Program Student Life Office Southeastern Massachusetts University functions daily as a university within a regional community. Within the context of the university there exists and operates what could also be called a community. This internal community works on the same principles as any other community, with one distinct feature, it is managed by students. The government, judiciary systems, various groups and organizations are all regulated by students. Very few, if any, decisions made at the university which directly affect students are not made exclusively by the students. The opportunity exists for any and all students to actively participate in the causes and effects of their environment. All that a student need do is step forward and become involved. Surprisingly enough, it is that simple and the results achieved for the participation are truly rewarding and invaluable. The following pages are devoted to those groups and organizations that were mot influential in SMU's daily operations. 39 SMU Theatre Company 46 Returning Students Organization Women's Center Veteran's Club 48 University Communications STUDENT GOVERNMENT The STUDENT GOVERNMENT functions on the SMU campus through the STUDENT SENATE. The Senate represents all students by popular election. Each individual class receives 3 representatives; each college receives a number of representatives based on their enrollment. Every position becomes available each year and presiding Senators must run for re-election each spring. The Senate body acts as the voice of the students in school affairs as members are appointed by the Senate President to serve on various faculty and administrative committees. It is the Senate's responsibility to allocate the student fees to the various clubs, organizations and activities on campus. Each year, these clubs and organizations go before the Senate Finance Committee with their requests for allocations for the academic year. The Committee reviews the club's proposed budget and past performance and then makes an allocation reccomendation. During the year a club may request additional monies and receive their request if the Senate approves their presentation. &* STUDENT SENATORS: Senate President, Bill Fallon (1983) Corresponding Secretary, Peggy- Lynn Geppert (1983) Julia Shaughnessy (Visual and Performing Arts) Vice-President, Kim Boothman (Business and \ndustry) Cindy Stuart (Engineering) John Montigny (Engineering) Maureen Dorsey (Business and \ndustry) John Camara (Arts and Sciences) Laura McDowell (Business and \ndustry) Kathleen Kelly (Arts and Sciences) Richard Miranda (Visual and Performing Arts) Colleen Mahan (Business and \ndustry) David Gavin (1984) Laurie Brown (Arts and Sciences) Mark Montigny (1984) Recording Secretary, Elissa Hoffman (1985) BOARD of GOVERNORS S TUDENT SENA TORS: Scott Maitland 11984) Julie Duran (1985) Deborah Ramsey (Nursing) Eileen P arise (1986) Richard Wallace (Continuing Studies) Chuck Hatch (1985) Greg Hatch (1986) Janeen Hazel (Engineering) Ronald Metzger (Arts and Sciences) Ray Fossick (Arts and Sciences) Laurie Brooks (1986) Suzanne Fredette (1985) The Campus Center BOARD of GOVERNORS is the governing body of the Campus Center.

STUDENT JUDICIARY RESIDENCE HALLS CONGRESS The STUDENT JUDICIARY is a system of courts — judicial agencies that provides the protection of due process to any student or student organization at SMU charged with an action calling for discipline. There are four ascending levels of student judicial authority: Residence Hall Judiciary; Court of General Affairs which has jurisdiction over lesser student infractions and is an appeal body for living unit and governing group judiciaries; University Court which is the final appelate body on all cases not involving suspension, dismissal or assessment of grade penalty in matters of academic dishonesty. It has jurisdiction over cases of all University significance; academic rights and freedoms; violation or interpretation of Student Government Constitution or policies of Student Senate and the constitutionality of its actions. It is the first court where a judgement of dismissal or suspension from the University can be handed down. The University Discipline Board is the final appeal agency on all penalities of suspension or dismissal. These penalties include special cases of discipline arising from extraordinary or emergency conditions and cases involving a student appeal of a failing grade given on the basis of a charge of academic dishonesty and upheld by the University Court. The student role in this process is a powerful one. Numerically, they are the largest segment of any with the exception of the University Discipline Board where they are equal with the faculty. All lower level courts are completely staffed by students. The authority of these judicial agencies is complete. Only the Board of Trustees can rescind that authority. RESIDENCE HALLS CONGRESS is the student-run government body of the residence halls. RHC has the power to act, when deemed necessary, upon any issue confronting resident students and residence life. It works in conjunction with the Residence Life Office, to formulate Hall policy and programming. The Congress consists of the Executive Officers, 12 House Representatives, and 6 Representatives at Large. All representatives are required to serve on one of the five standing committees. Residence Halls Judiciary members are appointed by the RHC. 25 Residence Halls Congress produces their annual RHC Christmas Party.

PIRG is a state-wide, consumer and environmental advocacy agency that was founded in 1970 by Ralph Nader. The local chapter at SMU is governed and financed by students. Mass. PIRG provides an array of services for its students and diverse projects and programs in consumer, legal and environmental areas designed for student participation. It was Mass. PIRG that sponsored the bottle bill for the state of Massachusetts. Once the bill had met the approval of Congress for passage as a law, opponents of the law (in particular the bottling industry), worked to get the bill on ballot in hopes of defeating the issue. Taking on the corporate giants was no small feat for Mass. PIRG, but with perserverance, they were able to see the bill become law in January of 1983. Other activities of the organization included a small claims court advisory service, a student book exchange at the beginning of each semester, the nutrition program, energy research and legislative lobbying.

Hosting primarily solo and duet musical performances, Coffeehouse provides a quiet, relaxed atmosphere for students to take time out. Highlights of Coffeehouse included an SMU Talent Night with exclusive talent from the university. The Film Series brought the movie theatre to campus with each show. Held in the Main Auditorium, the Film Series presented feature films at a college student's price — ($1). Among the films shown were: cult classics, Alices's Restaurant, Wickerman, Eraserhead and The Man Who Fell to Earth; popular favorites: Star Wars, Chariots of Fire and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Highlighting the year was the annual Cult Movie Night featuring The Rocky Horror Picture Show and Monty Python and the Holy Grail. RATHSKELLAR The Rathskellar besides being the campus week-end commencement center, week day recreational center and social spot, featured live rock-n-roll bands every Wednesday and Thursday night. Among the performers to entertain at the "Raf" were Maxwell's Demon, New Career, Rubber Rodeo, Gary Shane and the Detours, the Gluons and the Hometown Rockers. The "Hat" was also the favorite spot for clubs and organizations to hold their mixers. As the Senior Class did with Jim Plunkett. 33 SOCIAL FUNCTIONS 34 Social Functions on campus were fabricated by the Chairperson of Social Functions, Donna Melanson. Traditional events such as the Oktoberfest and the Christmas and Spring Balls were given new twists to add to their dimensions. The Eighth Annual Oktoberfest was held on October 16 and featured an outdoor cafe. Creating a more authentic atmosphere, two months were spent in preparation of the event. "Roll out the Barrel," "In Heaven There Is No Beer," and "O Du Lieber Augustine" were among the singalongs and dance numbers performed by the Deutchmeister German Band at this year's Oktoberfest. The semi-formal Christimas Ball is always a welcomed break from the grueling week of finals. The traditional ball gets students away from the books and into the almost forgotten Christmas spirit. Deja Vu a popular dance band provided the tunes for .i. the occasion. In addition to the buffet meal, appetizers of stuffed mushroom caps, egg rolls and scallops were served by waiters and waitresses. Ihe Spring Ball signifies the conclusion of a year filled with activities and has become the social event on campus not to be missed. With people sleeping outside the campus doors the night before tickets go on sale, Spring Ball tickets are more popular than your favorite concert tickets. Those fortunate enough to have the coveted passes enjoyed a buffet meal, Chinese style, followed by twisting and dancing the night away to the music of Fat City. 35 Photos: J McDonald MAJOR EVENTS Johansen photos: J McCormick MAJOR EVENTS has been providing quality shows for students at SMU since its beginning. Surprisingly, each year they improve on their previous efforts and the 1982/83 season was no exception to this fact. Wasting no time at all, Private Lightning and New Career kicked off the year with an amphitheatre concert in early September. Performing before a crowd of sunbathers, frisbee players and cooler caravans, the outdoor concert proved to be ideal fun in the sun and foreshadowed another great year at SMU for music fans. Major Events next production was just one month later and was labeled as their biggest production ever. So big in fact, that a riot nearly broke out during the sale of tickets in the campus center. October 6 saw the arrival of Great Britain's combat- rock group the Clash. When it was showtime, the gymnasium was a mass of rock starved fans ready to stick it out through the heat for the one-of-a-kind show. Vocalist/quitarist Joe Strummer, 36 lead quitarist/vocalist Mick Jones, bassist Paul Siminon and drummer Terry Chimes covered songs from all of their LPs pleasing all the fans both new and old. N ovember 1 7 marked the arrival of Mr. "Funky but Chic" himself, David Johansen. Dressed in a yellow and black plaid suit and donning a black top hat, Johansen proved to be a true showman who thrives on interaction with his audience as he constantly reached out to the crowd to make contact. Performing their old favorites as well as new unreleased material, Johansen and company put on an impressive, crowd- pleasing show that spelled fun for everyone especially the performers themselves. uJ '- . . # *'■ -^c9 f^mok S?^? ft/it * : : '^/ Completing the year for Major Events on May 1 were the lubes. The California- based band entertained the gymnasium crowd with their multi-faceted stage show. Making several costume changes, the Tubes performed well beyond the expectations of the crowd. Covering sports, sex, drugs and rock-n-roll, they left no stone unturned. All in all, it was a remarkably successful year for Major Events as they re-affirmed SMU's reputation as one of the most respected tour stops in New England.

It is a para- professional training program for peer academic and social advisement. After careful screening and selection, each student advisor undergoes training in group dynamics, helping skills and in learning the resources of the University. The training is designed to equip the student with inter-personal skills and the knowledge to fulfill the role of academic advisor, peer counselor and information source. Student Advisors function at Freshman and Transfer Orientations and provide information and campus tours for visitors at SMU. SAP is an example of in-depth involvement in the life of the SMU community. Whenever informed student- to-student information is desirable, Student Advisors are prepared to meet community needs. The SAP Office on the second floor of the Campus Center is the hub of the program's activities. Up-to-date academic information is accessible and an informed student advisor is available to help in problem solving, accept concerns about peer experiences and help in showing how to best use the University's resources. The Student Life Office is staffed by two Associate Deans of Students, Dean Mary Louise Walsh and Dean Donald Howard, whose functions are to serve in effect as University Omnibudsmen, rendering assistance to all students in matters of personal and social needs. The general purpose of this office is to improve the quality of campus life by providing direct help to student groups and organizations.

Theatre is always chaging, the fashions in the plays, the musicals, and the content vary almost as much as the fashions in clothes. But, the theatre itself remains, amusing, exciting, speaking always to the spirit of the times, whatever the times happen to be. Behind the scenes at the Theatre Company for all of their productions is Director Angus Bailey. Director Bailey is the unsung hero for SMUTCO. Devoted to the theatre, he fabricates every production from the first try-outs to the final curtain call, bringing out the finest in his performers, demanding professionalism and perfection. The courage of one young man and his ability to overcome his hideous physical appearance was the subject of the SMU Theatre Company's premier production, Bernard Pomerance's, The Elephant Man. The play is the true story of John Merrick, otherwise known as the "Elephant Man," and his relationship with a British surgeon, Sir Frederick Treves. Treves sees Merrick displayed in a circus freak show and removes him to the isolation ward in London Hospital, where Merrick resides from 1886 until his death in 1890. With the aid of slides, the audience is given a clear indication of the extreme grotesqueness of Merrick 's appearance. Treves, played by Robert Powers, describes John Merrick's disorder, while John Gagne, in the leading role, contorts his body while his deformities are listed. Gagne then maintains this awkard and contorted posture throughout the play implying Merrick's ugliness. In a garbled voice, Gagne vividly portrays a sensitive and lonely man as he hesitantly and thoughtfully speaks his lines. Robert Powers portrayed a compassionate Sir Frederick Treves, sensitive to the gradation Merrick suffers. Robin Wills played a witty and charming Mrs. Kendall; Dan Murphy was the austere Can Gomm; Ned Tsouprake was Merrick 's greedy exploiter, Ross; and Jack Pino was the Bishop How. The entire cast presented a thought-provoking and stirring account of this tragic tale. 39 A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED 40 The second production by SMUTCO was a tightly constructed "whodunit" thriller by Agatha Christie; full of surprises with a twist in the end. Adapted for stage by Leslie Darbon, the play deals with a middle-aged spinster, Letitia Blacklock who may inherit a fortune, if she can survive the attempts on her life. The action begins when Dora "Bunny" Bunner played by Mellanie Snipes discovers a personal ad in the local paper which announces that a murder will take place at Letty Blacklock's home on Friday the 13th at 6:30 p.m. Mellanie Snipes portrayal of "Bunny" was handled with skill as she gave an amusing and charming performance. Playing the lead role of Letitia Blacklock was Linda Nelson. As "Letty", she was poised and polished, giving a strong and well developed presentation from a woman of dignity to a character of desperation. In supporting roles, Christine Romeo played the part of Julia Simmons, Miss Blacklock's niece. Joseph Ellis played the part of Letty's nephew, Patrick Simmons. As the snooping Miss Marple, Noel Arsenault had some particularly humorous scenes when she was with Inspector Craddock played by Dennis Quinn. Linda Norwood gave a refreshing performance as the volatile and temptress Hungarian maid, Mitzi. Scott Duhamel played the part of Edmund Swettenham, the son of Clara Swettenham who was portrayed by Lisa \Nhayne. Jessica MacDonald was Phillipa Haymes and David Gavin played Sergeant Mellors. The set design was by Jack Pino and looked very Victorian. The lighting was handled by Ed Gordon. All in all, a very solid performance of the play was given by the Theatre Company. THE SOUND OF MUSIC The Jheatre Company's first musical for the 1982-83 season was the renowned classic by Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein II, 'The Sound of Music." The Jheatre Company gave one of the most charming and entertaining presentations they ever have for this special production. They captured the spirit of the title song with the excellent scenery, the flowing melodies, touching emotion and bright humor. The play is based upon the exploits of the famous von Trapp family and takes place in the 1930s prior to the Nazi occupation of Austria. Alice Long was enchanting as Maria, a young novitiate at a convent who becomes a governess to the seven children of widowed, retired naval officer, Captain von Trapp, played by Allan Bazinnotti. The Captain is a strict disciplinarian, and the children (played by community youngsters) try to take advantage of the young governess, but slowly Maria wins their loyalty by displaying her own affection for them and by teaching them the fun of life and the joy of music despite the Captain's opposition to such things. During a visit by the Baroness, played by Noel Arsenault, and Max Detweiler, played by Timothy McCarthy, Maria discovers she has fallen in love with the Captain. The Captain is planning to marry the Baroness so Maria leaves the family and returns to the convent. At the convent, the Mother Abbess, played by Robin Wills, dissuades Maria from returning to the religious life and return to the von Trapps. Upon her return both she and the Captain acknowledge the love they have for one another, the Baroness releases the Captain of his marital promise and he and Maria are married. While on their honeymoon, Max enters the children in the Salzburg Festival. On the newlyweds return, the Nazis have invaded Austria and SHE STOOPS TO CONQUER 42 the Captain is ordered to return to naval service. The Captain however is anti-Nazi, and when it comes time for the family performance in the Festival, he accompanies them in order to escape from Austria. The von Trapps win the Salzburg competition but do not come forth to receive their prize. They have escaped to a new life of freedom. SMUTCO presented an enjoyable, light- hearted and entertaining production of Oliver Goldsmith's "She Stoops to Conquer." The play, set in 18th century England, concerns the incongruous behavior of an aristocrat, named Marlowe, around women. Marlowe, an educated, wealthy gentleman is somewhat a ladies' man around common ladies and barmaids, but around genteel ladies he becomes a shy, timid dolt. Mastering the mixture of a snobbish aristocrat with that of a coy, unassured Marlowe was Tom Cayer. Mumbling and stumbling around his would-be bride, Kate Hardcastle (played by Linda Nelson), he can hardly look her in the eye. And yet when he speaks with Squire Hardcastle, Kate's father, Marlowe is condescending and intimidating. Unaware of Marlowe's "dual" personality, Squire Hardcastle, played by Dennis Quinn, is highly indignant and insulted. Quinn's portrayal of Hardcastle is lively, jovial and skillfully handled as the two locked horns for some very funny scenes. Supporting roles were played by Noel Arsenault as Mrs. Hardcastle; Abe Novick as Tony Lump in; Joseph Ellis as George Hastings; and Constance Laplume as Mrs. Hardcastle s niece. The sets were evocative of the 18th century in England and created an attractive and charming atmosphere. The costumes were stylish and eye-catching. The colors were bold and befitting of the period's aristocracy. TERRA NOVA Terra Nova is a play about the race between a crew of 5 Englishmen, led by Captain Robert Scott, and 5 Norwegians, led by Roald Admundsen, to be the first to reach the South Pole. The role of Captain Scott was played by professional actor and former SMUTCO veteran Bill Begley. Begley convincingly captured Scott's drive to reach the South Pole at the expense of his crew and his own life. His counterpart, Admundsen, played by another SMUTCO veteran, Tony Ferreira, conveyed the feelings of respect and hatred the two men had for one another. The only female role of the play was performed by Christine Romeo as Scott's wife, Kathleen Scott. In a solid performance she represented the softer side of Scott's life. the party. Tom Cayer was the proud Scotsman, Oates, whose death becomes a turning point, marking the death of the spirit of the group, as they become aware of how close they are to their own deaths. Dan Murphy portrayed Wilson, the conservative medic. Dennis Quinn played the role of Bowers, a scientific officer. Contributing to the production's success, was the simple set design by Dan Murphy; the costuming by Mellanie Snipes, Noel Arsenault, and Holly Parker Begley; and the striking and creative lighting design by Ed Gordon. The combination of all these reflected the stark nature of the antarctic environment. John Gagne played the part of Evans, an Englishman, who is torn between the desire to continue the venture, and his fear of death as he holds up the advance of Photos: J. McDonald 43 jj» (L^; r M ■"^ j ■ f* 1 i $S fi j 1 ■■ mm Jl PI mm , %. vJl (~»™. 44 \n a heart-warming production, SMUTCO presented Hugh Leonard's play "Da", a comedy about a playwright, Charlie, returning home to remove the personal effects of his late father, Da. Charlie intends to remove everything out as quickly as possible but the ghost of Da has a different idea. Da, played by Dennis Quinn, begins to recollect the life of Charlie, played by Dan Murphy. Charlie sees himself as a young man, enacted by John Gagne, as he begins looking for work after having finished school. His first employer is a man named Drumm (Abe Novick) who treats Charlie like the son he never had, never letting Charlie forget that he is the illegitimate son that Da adopted. Charlie's dialogues with his younger self and members of his past showed the difficulty he had in trying to forget his past and then being forced to relive it. Dennis Quinn's portrayal of Da was done so naturally it appeared as if Leonard had written the play with him in mind. As Charlie, Murphy's delivery was smooth and professional. Gagne' s performance as the young Charlie was exciting and captivating. In supporting roles were Mellanie Snipes as Charlie's spunky mother; Terry Moriarty as Oliver, Jessica McDonald as "The Yellow Peril" and Noel Arsenault as Mrs. Pyrnne. Photos: J McDonald WEST SIDE STORY The Theatre Company's finale for the 1982-83 season was a full scale production of Robert Griffith and Harold Prince's 'West Side Story. " The play is Jerome Robbins conception of presenting a modern version of the story of Romeo and Juliet. The story opens with a danced Prologue that indicates the bitter tension between the Jets, a self-styled "American" street gang and the Sharks, a group of young Puerto Ricans. The Jets leader, Riff vows to drive the Sharks, led by Bernado, from the streets. At a dance, Bernardo's sister Maria meets Tony, the co-founder of the Jets, and he falls in love with her. After the dance, Tony visits Maria on the fire escape of her apartment, and they pledge their love. As the tension builds between the gangs, a rumble breaks out, a member of the Sharks is stabbed and in the ensuing action Tony knifes Bernardo. Avenging Bernardo's death, a member of the Sharks shoots and kills Tony. "West Side Story" featured plenty of lively dancing, intense action and exciting music. This play required alot more people than normal casts and was clearly enjoyed by the cast as well as the audience. It was a fitting conclusion for another successful season for the Theatre Company. 45 RETURNING STUDENTS ORGANIZATION WOMEN'S CENTER VETERANS' CLUB OF SMU RSO Staff: Treasurer, Mary Molloy President, Betty Theodore Secretary, Bonnie Villabon 46 The RETURNING STUDENT ORGANIZATION is run by and for people who have returned to college after a break in their formal educational process.

With a number of returning starters on the '83 squad, experience was considered one of many strengths. Excellent speed, a strong offense, a "more than adequate" defense and an extensive pitching staff filled out the team's qualities. With only a few outdoor practices, the club spent their spring break in Kentucky playing teams of the South that play ball year round. This advantage proved too much for the men as they went 0-6 during the tournament I \ ■'■■ -&****Zvm<6yj*' 52 fflmmi play. The remainder of the season was marked by . 500 ball playing. Coach Bruce Wheeler reflected upon the season's course, "We struggled, we had a strong young team so we progressed slowly . . . we started out very slowly, (but) we improved through the season and we played pretty good . . . we hit the ball pretty good but then our defense or pitching would go ... we were inconsistent . . . we made different mistakes every game. " \n the latter part of the season, drastically improved pitching was a key factor to many of the team's victories. The pitching staff consisted of 10 members. Led by senior Bill Kay, 6 of the 10 were returning veterans: Dave Governo, Don Nikoskey, Jim Brown, Jeff Lace, Bill O 'Brien and freshman Dave Hurley who was Eastern Massachusetts High School Player of the Year. Catching for the club were senior captain George Smith and juniors Ray Desormier and Paul DeCoste. Playing the infield were first baseman Kevin Lehane; second baseman, Rich Seafini; shortstop, senior Barry Jones; and at third base, Mike Curran and Tom McKenna. Outfielders were leftfielder, Bill Cavanaugh, centerfielder, Roger Gaydou; and rightfielder Dave Morris.

After jumping out to an impressive 9-2 record, a tight on-the-road schedule coupled with fatigue and injuries, the team's record fell to 1-6 in their next 7 games. "We (were) a very aggressive team. We (worked) our butts off all game long, so we needed to rest up. I'd say it just caught up to us," commented Coach Bruce Wheeler, "we advanced in alot of areas . . . the program is stronger and it's getting stronger . . . We had three games that we really should have won, " Coach Wheeler was referring to a one point loss to Suffolk; a two point loss to Brandeis and a two point loss to Eastern Connecticut in double overtime. For the team and Coach Wheeler it was a virtuous season. They improved their record from the previous year's 11-11 tally despite the shortcomings experienced during the season. Fourteen games of a totaled 23 were played on the road. With the exception of the seven game lapse in mid-season, the team had a very successful season. Photos: M Robinson 55 WOMEN'S BASKETBALL — 56 3 u o •c a. The 1982-83 WomeVs Basketball team was continually testea*by a tough season schedule in the highly respected and very competitive Division III League. "It was a difficult season, there were many close, disappointing situations . . . They (the team) were a credit to SMU. It would have been easy to have given up at some of those games, but they worked every game to the final second, " declared Coach Judy Sullivan as the team ended their season with a 7- 12 record. "Last year we had a very young team. This season we were mudfmore balanced . . . I was pleased/with the progress of both the letter people and with the freshmen." "Senior contributions were made by co- captains Alison Molignano and Michelle Thibault who were key factors on the floor, demonstrating intense defense at all times with their experience and expertise." Forward Lisa Blanc was quoted by Coach Sullivan as "one of the best all-around players that we've had at SMU. Her quickness and shooting ability added a good deal to our arsenal this year." Referring to Marguerite Levangie, Coach Sullivan remarked, ' 'She had great rebounding toughness which helped to emancipate our fast break. She developed her jump shot in combination with her offensive and defensive capabilities. " Coach Sullivan spoke highly of the team effort, "We demonstrated alot of ability . . . we displayed no drop in the intensity on the floor or in the performance . . . we had a great showing in attack and hustle on the defense . . . they were an enjoyable group with alot of basketball knowledge. " Photos: M Robinson CROSS-COUNTRY Led by Ail-American performances from senior Cathy Carnes, and freshman Diane \Needer, the SMU Women's Cross Country Team ran to a fourth place finish at the NCAA Division III Championships in Fredonia, New York on November 20th. SMU missed finishing in the top three by just one point. Coach Bob Dowd called the performance "a true national championship . . . We ran as well as we could have expected, but we're a bit disappointed that we missed third by just one point." in Boston, SMU was the only team finishing in the top ten that was not a Division I team. It was SMU's highest placing ever at the championships. Other runners for the team, that helped in the 5-0 season record, were senior Christy Baker, junior Cheryl Mrozienski, and freshmen Ann Harrison, Paula Gendron, July Dube and Donna Weeder. 58 Cathy Carnes who finished tenth overall became the first SMU athlete to repeat as Ail-American two years in a row in the same sport. "I'm really happy with the way I ran," she commented, "it (the meet) was alot tougher this year. But, I beat out the girls that beat me in the qualifying meet and I'm happy about that. " Diane \Needer finished just 6 seconds after Ms. Carnes for 13th place. In so doing she became the first SMU freshman to earn All American honors in cross- country. At the New England Championships held In a year when Bob Dowd's Men's Cross Country learn was not expected to qualify for the NCAA Division III National Championships, the Corsair seven man contingent was the 15th team in its class in the United States and produced one All-American. Junior Bob Cosgrove led SMU with a 16th place showing to finish with All American honors and become Dowd's fourth male named to that distinction. ' 'A pair of juniors crossed the finish line next for SMU with Ed Hheaume taking Wist and Jim Forance placing 106th, (at the NCAA Championships) . . . Senior captains Joe Cooney, Keith Paton and Tom Hogan, in their final collegiate race, were the fourth, fifth, and sixth respective harriers for the Corsairs, while freshman Helder Braz rounded out the squad. One week earlier at the NCAA Division Three Northeast Region Qualifying Championships, Cosgrove was the 16th place finisher in New England, but at the National Championshps, he was the number five runner from his district. 1982 marked the tenth year in a row that SMU has been competing at the championships and with this year's performances ranking in a tie for seventh on the all time list."

Making the SMU record books were Dave Hayden and Steve Murphy as they combined with 9 bouts each for a total 18 of 20 to win the Silvio Vitale Award for excellence in fencing. It was at an invitational tournament where the team placed third missing first by just one point. At the tournament, Steve Murphy placed third; Dave Hayden took fourth place; and Jeff Feroce captured a seventh place. Captain Murphy's third place finish secured him a spot for the National qualifying competition. He became the first SMU student to make the Nationals by capturing first place in the NCAA 60 9 the 1982-83 Men's FerfBiqg^eam contested with inspired effort to turnout a 6-2 season record: Coacff Ralph lykodi was very pleased with the team 's success, remarking that the team surprised even him, "we did much better than I expected." The key to their success was outstanding individual performances under pressure and against all odds. Whenever necessary, individuals would rise to the occasion with needed victories for a team win. Seniors included Jerf Feroce, Dave Hayden, Ken Seureth jpd captain Steven M* Qualifying tournament in New York City. In a rigorous three day National competition at the University of Wisconsin, Steve fenced to a 19th position from a field of 36 of the nations' s finest fencers. The Women's Fencing Team consisted of six returning fencers and 4 new fencers for the 1982-83 season. Leading the pack of letterpersons were Seniors Sue Gradner, Joanne Flanagan, and captain Sue Martin; juniors included Cathy Hutchinson and Patty O'Connor and sophmore Joan Perry. First year fencers were senior Janice Yee; sophmore Tess lalerman and freshmen Lynn Champagne and Chris Davis. Fencing requires both mental and physical stamina and expertise, as well as speed, agility and coordination. "Things happen 61 so fast you don't have time to think about everything that you are doing. The most important things to remember are to be aggressive and to be in control, " stated captain Sue Martin. FIELD HOCKEY The 1982-83 Women's Field Hockey J earn rebounded from the previous year's disappointing campaign to finish the season with a respectable 4-7-3 record. Beginning their season with only a single week of practice before the opening game, steady, hard work and positive thinking were the determining factors for a considerably successful season. The 82- 83 team had to rebuild from a team that won just one game and scored few goals the previous season. First year coach Dorene Menezes greatly praised her team on their effort and improvement, "I'd say the biggest differences from last year's team are that we scored more needed goals this year and our co-captains Michelle Jhibault and Rosemarie Paquet helped in creating a positive team attitude." The 4-7-3 record does not indicate how hard fought the games actually were. Nor does it indicate that the team was in contention in all but two of the games. W '■ . .« ■- ■' mm- Photo: B Addison Photo: K Murphy Notable offensive play was performed by Michelle Jhibault, Maura Donahue, Nancy Meehan and Kathy Small. Referring to goalie Rosemarie Paquet, coach Mezenes said, "Rosemarie was a strong team player and a definite asset on defense. " Rosemarie s outstanding season was highlighted with a shutout against Pine Manor College. 63 GOLF The SMU Men's Golf learn concluded its 1983 season with a notable eleventh place finish at the New England Championships. The tournament featured 38 Division I, II and III teams from throughout New England. Among the Division III teams SMU placed a very respectable fourth. "Considering the conditions and the short season we've had, we played fairly well," said Coach Mike Silva, "Overall, I'd have to say I'm pretty pleased with the season. We didn't go quite as far as we had hoped ■ ,i# M^ 64 to, but we proved that we're still one of the top teams in New England. " The top five players from the team competed in the tournament, having earned that right by having the lowest stroke averages during the regular season. Two seniors, co-captains Dan Donovan and John Connor, junior Brian Campbell, and freshmen Mike Carberry and Joe Kellerher made up SMU's tournament team. Three other seniors who played for the team during the season were Bill Eager, Larry McCue and Dave Putnam. \NTRAMURAL SPORTS \ntramural sports at SMU was the ideal opportunity for every student to release some of the everyday academic anxiety and frustration, meet new fellow students, and have a good time with peers by participating in team sports. Intramural competition was held in basketball, cross- country, flag football, Softball, swimming, tennis and volleyball with co-ed competition in softball and volleyball. The only requirements for forming a team for \ntramurals was to turn in a roster before the designated deadline. 65 HOCKEY If wasn't simply that they did it, but rather how they did it that was so impressive. On two successive nights, the Corsair Hockey Team dismantled the two top seeded teams in the EC AC Tournament to come away with the ECAC Division III Championship. 'SMU was seeded third in the four team tourney, and in fact, didn't even get picked until three days after top seed lona College and second seed Wesleyan University had already secured their spots. But on Friday, March 4, the Corsairs trounced Wesleyan, 7-4, and then a night later they beat lona, 8-2, to win SMU's first title ever. 'We completely outclassed them, ' said Coach Alex Kogler. 'We outskated them and we outshot them . . . After the Wesleyan game, I knew nobody was going to beat us ... We were kind of flat during the second period of the Wesleyan game, and (goaltender) John Findley kept us in it. During the third period we were flying, and it just carried over into the lona game. We were really confident going in. Everybody knew we could beat them. Photo: M Robinson '/ couldn 't say there was just one big factor, because there were several. We had two high scoring lines. Our power play was strong and our penality killing was strong all year. It was more of a general whole team togetherness that made the difference." Quoted from a Torch article by Bill Eager. The title-winning team was comprised of two veteran defensemen: Tom Findley and Paul Moore; playing after a season's absence was Gary Couett; freshmen defensemen were Pat Morrison, Scott Glennon, Neil Doherty, and Mark Jardif. Five veteran fowards included: Mark Jallent, Doug Ell, Peter Barbagello, Eddie Pomphrett and Mike Trayers; rookie fowards were Jeff Gove, Jeff Ryan, Paul Hogan, Arthur Giorgianti, Doug Bradford and Scott Cordeiro; and minding the nets was goalie John Findley.

Under the coaching of Ken Fonseca and assistant Bruce Botelho, the 83 Corsairs were a team of solid defense, controlled ball handling and aggressive hustle. After 2 months of hard work and fifteen regular season games, the Corsairs' season culminated in one game. The ECAC play-off game against Williams College played on a rain soaked field on November 5. Seven minutes into the game, the Corsairs took the lead on a Mike Long goal. Thirteen minutes later Williams College answered the Corsair goal to tie the game at 1-1 . The game remained dead-locked at 1-1 as regulation time was played out. Photo: J kndrade Photo: B Addison Photo: K Murphy / Two fifteen minute sudden death overtime periods were unsuccessful in determining a winner. EC AC rules dictated a series of 10 alternating penalty shots would be taken to determine the victor. The dramatic finish concluded with Williams advancing in the playoffs. The Corsairs finished their regular season with some notable statistics. A great deal of their success was due to a powerful defense and a sticky-fingered goaltender, Fred Rabinovitz, who combined to allow an average of only 1.0 goals per game. The offense however, amassed 27 goals for an average of 1.8 goals per game. fMHHB 69 SOFTBALL 70 The SMU Women's Softball Team captured the MAI AW State Tournament crown for Division Ml Class B colleges on April 22 by defeating Mount Holyoke and Gordon Colleges. Beginning their season with high hopes, the women worked diligently to become the premier team. After having lost six of their seven top batters from the '82 season, the women had a gap to fill, "we're working on our hitting, " remarked coach Sherry Medeiros during preseason training. ' 'Our defense is great but our offense needs work." Batting was not the only area that required rebuilding, "the outfield is weak because all our outfielders graduated last year," noted coach Medeiros. But when it was all put on the line, "everything came together, the defense, the pitching and finally the hitting," stated coach Medeiros after their tournament victory. A look at the line-up reveals a pitching staff consisting of three members: co- captain Terry Benjamino and Rosemary Paquet, both seniors. The third member of the pitching staff was the relief pitcher Janice Tilly. The catchers include Lynn Balloy, a returning senior, and Margaret H anion, a freshman. Making up the infield were: first basemen, freshman Karen Dunn and sophomore Patricia Murphy; second basemen, freshman June Marsilla and junior Julie Tremblay; third basemen, sophomore Pat Dewar and freshman Dawn Lima; short-stop, senior co-captain Michelle Thibault; outfielders, senior Marguerite Levangie, freshman Janice Tilly and Mary lihlmar.

Philosophy offers students examples of analysis of contemporary ethical and social problems, such as abortion, euthanasia humanistic purpose, and the equality of women. It encourages habits of sustained effort in seeking clarity concerning personal and social values, comprehension of reality, and the nature of science. Graduates will find employment in management, law, medicine, journalism, or other fields in which refined analytical skills are in demand. Dr. Wassmer speaks of his interpretation of Philosophy at SMU: "Philosophy is the discipline of discovering value, of asking the 'itchy, bitchy questions' . . . After being in a philosophy class with someone, you don't have to take him seriously again . . . It's a humbling discipline ... It's like rolling out a sheet of wool to see all of its pieces . . . 'There are responsibilities in the professional community in the university — especially to students . . . They are persons, not to be manipulated and toyed with . . . They should be respected . . . 'In philosophy, we are always pursuing, asking further questions . . . Where are certain things — unseen things — that are more real than real things. This study is in part the knowledge of the person-of the persona, the mask. For example, in the old Assisi, you will find a crucifix that from one side appears to be in rhapsodic joy. From the other it is in agonizing pain and terror, and you say to yourself — what's real?" Faculty Dr. John Fitzgerald Dr. Richard Hogan Dr. Diane Barense Dr. Theodora Kalikow Dr. James Place The PHILOSOPHY CLUB has as its primary functions: to stimulate philosophical thinking and to aid students in developing individual opinions and appreciating the opinions of others. Activities include regular meetings, club sponsored discussion groups, guest lecturers and films. 121 Advisor Dr. Richard Hogan PHYSICS Dr. Zvi Bar-Yam Chairperson Department of Physics The Physicists' field of potential is remarkably broad in scope. They may be involved in theoretical studies, in experimental research, or in the development of a new apparatus. They may probe the depths of space, design computers, or investigate the interior of nuclei. The physics graduates may find employment in industry, in government laboratories, or in secondary schools; or they may choose to continue studies at the graduate level to enter university teaching and research. Dr. Bar-Yam comments on the strengths of the Physics Department: 'We stress an environment with a strong spirit of inquiry, of stimulation . . . close interaction of students and faculty . . . A new development in the department is the use of the computer, it will memorize information, and the student can build on this information in a more sophisticated manner . . . 122 . . . commenting on what he would like the Graduates to leave with: 'We hope they develop an interest to learn, to ask questions about what they don't know and the desire to attempt to find answers. " The objectives of the SOCIETY of PHYSICS STUDENTS are to encourage students interest in physics to develop knowledge, enthusiasm and social responsibility in their study of physics; to stimulate interest in research; and to develop friendships among physics students, faculty and professionals. The National SPS provides this contact on a nation-wide basis. Chapter functions include guest speakers, films, trips to regional and national physics meetings and tours of research latoratories and corporations of related interests.

It is a real world atmosphere . . . one that is also intellectual . . . . . . comments on department strengths and activities: ?4 'Our students are doing interesting things — interning in law offices, working on political campaigns, writing for the Torch . . .

There is an integration . . . The Political Science Association is very active . . . students tend to be involved in various campaigns such as the bottle bill . . . the faculty is also involved in things . . . alot of books are being written . . . they do consultation . . . We have a brown bag lunch series where faculty — sometimes students — get together to discuss projects they are involved with . . . ... a final comment on what he would like to see the students leave with: 'The ability to think analytically about political matters . . . to know how to find out what really matters, and not just to take quick sides on issues . . . The substance of learning about the government of Southeast Asia or of the United States hopefully leads into this kind of thinking, of separating the wheat from the chaff." Political Science focuses basically on those subjects which have become sufficiently important to be raised to the level of public issues. Its primary concern is the analysis of the power relationships and decision-making patterns which shape and determine the outcomes of such issues. Much of political science involves the study of government, which is the arena in which public issues are raised and resolved. The Political Science program provides its students with three kinds of knowledge: a basic factual knowledge of American government and politics, with exposure to the politics of foreign cultures, international relations and organizations, and normative political values and ideologies; a capacity for personal political analysis, which includes the ability to define personal goals and to understand political behavior sufficiently to select appropriate means for achieving these goals; a capacity for conducting original and systematic political research. p*M Dr. Jack Pyock Dr. Rita Moniz Dr. Robert Piper T.

Students have the right to ask questions, expect quality, to be involved in our research projects, to come into my office to talk . . . 'We start students early in the 'out-of- lecture' experience . . . Virtually all faculty have students in their projects which cover a spectrum from mental retardation to neural damage . . . The faculty is very strong in research, and also in experimental and applied teachings . . . Everyone is actively involved in ongoing projects . . . We are creative, innovative. We are not an ivory tower. . . . final comments on what he feels students should leave SMU with: 'The ability to think . . . The structure of this university can bog students, with papers, with 'cums', with an 7 gotta get an A philosophy'. This pressure to succeed can stifle creative learning — taking a risky course . . . I hope through all the university system our students can keep their minds fresh and inquisitive." The focus of Psychology is the study of behavior. Psychology is studied as a science with the implication to a rational thinking and emperical analysis of the problems encountered in describing and explaining human behavior. The program has traditional survey courses such as physiological psychology, theories of personality, and social psychology, as well as courses which focus upon particular topics of interest to pyschologists, e.g., learning, behavior, therapy, and counseling. Students may also engage in research and participate in internships in various settings. Both the Bachelor of Arts and the Bachelor of Science degrees are offered in psychology. Psychology Graduates find primary employment opportunities in personnel management, secondary and elementary school education, social work, and as aides in mental health establishments. Higher level psychological activities, such as counseling psychotherapy, university instruction, psychological research and various administrative mental health positions generally become employment opportunities for those who continue their education to the master's degree or doctorate level.

Currently, we are all working together on revising our curriculum with three divisions: applied sociology, human services, and criminal justice . . . 7 hope our students get a degree with substance — a good, sound understanding of sociology; what it is and what it proposes to do. " Faculty Sociology is the study of social behavior in its different forms; it is the study of human groups on a smaller scale — such as the family, peer group, and neighborhood. A Sociology Graduate's work can be defined as the application of concepts (from disciplines such as sociology, psychology, or anthropology) to an area of concern in today's society. Social work and social action growing out of these basic disciplines increasingly attempt not only to study and treat but also to create new social realities.

The textile industry is a universe of diversification, where one may specialize in manufacturing, chemistry, marketing, management, styling, or design. SMU currently offers the only textile degree program in New England. The Textile Sciences Department consists of two major areas of study: Textile Technology and Textile Chemistry. Dr. Perry comments on the environment within the department: "We are a very close-knit group . . . This past year the students and faculty put together a series of resumes, Profiles "83, we put together a mailing list and sent out over 600 copies . . . We are getting response throughout the country . . . We are very successful in placing our students, considering the current job market, we are very pleased . . . As I've said, our faculty works very closely with the students . . . I think most people really enjoy being involved with this department comments on department activities: 166 'In the past the faculty has published papers with alot of assistance from students . . . Daily, we get involved with problems ... we do a great deal of community service with the students doing the work . . . we currently have a $40,000 research grant from the U.S. Navy on developing easier stain removal from their polyester white dress uniforms, which again, the students are doing the work . . . a final comment on what he would like "For many students I feel that if it hadn't the Graduates to take with them upon leaving SMU: been for SMU, their careers and long term plans might not have been realized . . . without SMU where would alot of these students be now? . . . Because of this program they have tremendous potential. " The Textile Chemistry program is structured to give students thorough preparation in general chemistry in addition to specialized instruction in textile chemistry. During the first year the curriculum is identical to the arts and sciences chemistry program. Emphasis is placed upon dyeing and finishing during the final five semesters. Graduates are employed in industry in the areas of control, production, research and development, and sales and purchasing. The Textile Technology program is more generalized than the one in textile chemistry, and the curriculum encompasses a wide range of subjects. There is less emphasis on the allied sciences of chemistry, mathematics, and physics; greater attention is given to the technological aspects of the textile industry. By their third year students must choose one of six options: business administration, dyeing and finishing, electrical engineering technology, mechanical engineering technology, merchandising, or structural science.

COLLEGE of N URSING The College of Nursing offers a four-year program which combines professional nursing courses with a sound background in the humanities, the social sciences, and the physical and biological sciences. Graduates are awarded the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, and are eligible to take the examination for licensing as registered nurses. Using a broad background of scientific principles, graduates are able to: identify and solve nursing problems; plan, administer and evaluate nursing care; direct and coordinate the care given by other nursing personnel and auxiliary workers, develop in collaboration with others, individual, family and community nursing programs designed to promote health and prevent disease. The nursing major is built upon a sound liberal education. The program is planned to develop personal qualities necessary to expand intellectual and cultural horizons, to live competently in society, and to mature as individuals. 196 Employment opportunities are numerous and varied in a rewarding career of service to others. Professional nurses are prepared to practice nursing in a variety of settings, including community agencies, hospitals, public helath organizations, industry and the military. Sj .^.M Dr. Joyce Passos Dean College of Nursing Dean Passos comments on the atmosphere within the College of Nursing: "We have two sub-divisions: the department of institutional nursing and the department of community nursing. We try to create through faculty confidence and outreach an awareness of the unmet needs in modern nursing . . . We try to create an environment in which faculty are the most comfortable in dealing with the unknown as a challenge, not a threat . . . our students will be dealing with ambiguity: there is always a better way. They must question . . . in our last two years, we try to have a 1:10 faculty/ student ratio . . . the tool a nurse uses is herself . . . in helping our students grow, we faculty must be willing to live through that pain. 197 . . . comments on activities within the College of Nursing: 'In the past four years, the faculty have exploded in their areas of concern. Three are involved in the needs of Portuguese speaking people . . . There is now a project in teaching practical Portuguese to health professionals . . . We also have a series of oral history projects with the elderly . . . We were able to bring on a geriatric nurse practioner. She has helped our students with learning elderly people's needs in the community . . . We have also entered into the planning stage for a master's degree in geriatric nursing . . . The members of the commission which developed this, including the Medical Technology department within the university, have formed a network which also is involved in a project for lead paint poison prevention for children in Southeastern Massachusetts . . . One faculty member was instrumental in establishing the New Bedford Health Clinic . . . Also, because of the support of the area health education center, we are starting to improve the relations between community college programs and SMU in terms of transfer programs . . . ... a final comment on what Dean Passos would like the Graduates to take with them when they leave SMU: 'We try to provide people with respectable educations in the liberal arts, skills that will help them provide people with support in, among other things, making health decisions . . . Also, discipline and a sense of satisfaction in maintaining new learning. Through this, to maintain an ability to identify the changing current scene of knowledge. " 198 COMMUNITY NURSING Maureen Hull Chairperson Department of Community Nursing Chairperson Hull comments on the environment within the Community Nursing Department: 'One of freedom to develop ideas — to explore nursing within the perimeters of the curriculum and structure of the department . . . . . comments on department activities: 'Being visible in the community outside the hospital . . . bringing to people an awareness of their own health needs . . . Using students, we are running a self-help program at such places as the malls — bringing this information to the people . . . a faculty member has been involved in developing an outreach program with a van . . . One particular strength I feel strongly about is that students get a clinical approach — working with people directly . . . 199 ... a final comment on what Chairperson Hull wishes for the Graduates to take with them upon leaving SMU: "/ hope they leave with a strong philosophy of caring and a solid knowledge base . . . Caring is important in nursing, to be able to respond to the sick person's needs." INSTITUTIONAL NURSING Ann Jschirch Chairperson Department of Institutional Nursing Chairperson Jschirch comments on the atmosphere within the Department of Institutional Nursing: 'We make ourselves available to the students, all faculty to all students, fom the seniors to the incoming freshmen. I feel strongly about this policy . . . comments on department activities: 200 ... a final comment on what she would like to see the Graduates leave SMU with: 'We have a geriatric nurse practicioner who with some of our students is engaged in collecting data on area geriatric patients ... we also have a van we are using for community assessments . . . One member of the faculty did a study of the Portuguese-speaking community and their health needs and beliefs. For that we hired students as interpreters . . . and of course, we have student representatives on our committees . . . "I think our students see the faculty as role models. The most important asset I hope our students leave with is the learning of integrity and honesty in dealing with people whether well or sick."

We try to teach our students the ability to instill in children as well as adults the attitude that art is not merely a skill . . . it is like a chocolate bar, you think it tastes good, but we are concerned as to what happened prior to the chocolate bar . . . the beans the culture it came from, its aesthetics . . . Art is a component of many things . . . 'Project Excell for one: it brings gifted students from 1 1th and 12th grades to SMU . . . we've been involved in an accredidation process . . . we were approved which allows our students to be certified and recognized in 32 other states . . . one fact that stands out is our diversity . . . In terms of enrollment our students can take courses in other departments. They can be very flexible . . . ... a final comment on what Dr. Vena would like to see the Graduates take with them after leaving SMU: "/ hope they leave as good teachers . . . sensitive to their children, sensitive to our attempts to teach them . . . That they are warm, caring people who are able to respond to their students' needs in a nourishing manner. " Faculty Peter London Lisa Liedes The Art Education program provides a sequence of practical, theoretical and studio-based experiences leading to proficiency in the teaching of art. The scope of the program permits participation of students interested in teaching art in the public school system and for those who wish to teach in other private and public agencies and levels.

Graduate Joyce Kemp 211 ART HISTORY Dr. Thomas Puryear Chairperson Department of Art History Dr. Puryear comments on the atmosphere within the Department of Art History: 'The Art History Department provides a unique classroom experience . . . We deal with primary documents . . . it is like having manuscripts of authors in which the appearance is important . . . We try to arrive at historically accurate conclusions . . . one especially good aspect of our department is that it is small, the people we have here are concentrated in specific areas with different viewpoints on what art history is all about . . . . . . comments on department activities: 212 ... a final comment on what he would like to see the Graduates leave SMU with: 'We have many projects going . . . One which comes to mind is Doctor Carrera's show on Pacific art which started in a seminar and ended up as an exhibition . . . 'No matter how academically elite an art history degree may sound, its student carries with him a visual ability for analysis and criticism. " Faculty Graduates Dr. Magali Carrera Dr. Pearlee Freiberg Art History is the study of the visual arts, architecture, sculpture, painting, and the many crafts which often blend inperceptibly into the domain of the fine arts. Art History offers an understanding and appreciation of mankind's diverse visual experience, and therefore, such study leads invariably to an examination of the conditions which attended creation, the influence of political, sociological, and intellectual events which helped to shape not only art, but the whole of civilization. Betsy Dillingham Maggi Peirce The ART HISTORY ASSOCIATION conducts a series of activities throughout the year to expose its members to the world of art history. The Association plans several large bus trips to New York City and elsewhere to visit museums and galleries, holds pot luck suppers, schedules films on art and invites speakers to lecture on art history related topics. 213 FINE ARTS Willoughby Elliott Chairperson Department of Fine Arts Chairman Elliott comments on the atmosphere in the Fine Arts Department: "Hopefully one in which we can be open . . . It's a small college . . . I try to steer all paperwork to me . . . Artists on the whole don't enjoy each other's company, but we maintain good morale . . . An accredidation review said our students' work was very strong . . . I think this in part is the result of faculty rapport . . . 214 comments on department activities: 'We're trying to be less separate from the rest of the university, . . . this year we've instituted a series of faculty presentations . . . We're also working on a kind of rental gallery of student work that will be displayed across campus . . . We've also opened courses on the basic level in painting and drawing to all SMU students . . . ... a final comment on what he would like the Graduates to take with them: ' 7 think we teach them skills and a good basis for making visual judgements . . . We try to give them an openness for what exists out there." Faculty Jhe Fine Arts area has three majors: painting, printmaking, and sculpture. Students are encouraged to pursue their own direction and to choose many different modes of personal expression. The ultimate objective is to develop respect for the learning process and the creative act as a means of preparing the student for an active role in the cultural stream of life. Craft and basic concept are employed to produce work that transcends mere craft.

" 218 Faculty The Design program is based entirely on the understanding of the designer as an artist. While it is directed in many ways toward a professional competence, it refuses to fetter the designer with a rigid set of principles or practices. In general, the assigned projects deal with communications in the widest sense, and the student is expected to be able to solve these projects creatively by using the widest variety of technical and graphic means. Students must choose to concentrate in visual design, illustration, photography, or ceramics by their junior year.
