To Ann L. and Dr. Donald E. Walker 

For your love of people; 

For your devotion to education; 

For your deep knowledge and concern for students; 

For your 1 1 years of steadfast service to the students of this region; 

For your efforts to bring SMU to a place of national prominence in the 
academic realm, while remaining sensitive to the needs of humane inter- 
action on a smaller scale; 

For your overriding knowledge and special insight into the way people in 
organizations really work together; 

And for your willingness to share not only your accumulated wisdom on 
larger matters, but to your concern for us as individuals; 

We, the Class of 1983, thank you and dedicate this yearbook to you. 





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 

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 

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 


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 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 

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." 


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.

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 

Voted "most effective freshman 
Congressman" by his colleagues, Barney 
Frank, in his campaign for U.S. 
Representative for the fourth district

the right, Ted Kennedy, Jr. with Student Trustee 
Mark Montigny and Associate Dean of Student Life,

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 

\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 






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 

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 


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 


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 

"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."

members present Alex Haley with 
a token of their love, admiration 
and appreciation. 





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 

Student organizations play a major role in 
the event by sponsoring and organizing 
the different activities throughout the 

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 

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 



Dai — 


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!"

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.

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 

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.

Officers, 12 House Representatives, and

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

Coffeehouse features a weekly series of 
performing artists from both off and on 
campus. 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 

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. 


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. 




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 


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.

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 

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, 


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

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.

part of the outreach activities of the 
University Counseling Center. 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 

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.

The Theatre Company is an SMU 
institution, which, with its constant 
productions, is a major cultural force on 
the North Dartmouth campus. 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 

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. 




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 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 



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 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 

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 

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

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.

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

The SMU TORCH is the weekly student 
newspaper that reports on activities and 
matters of particular interest to SMU 
students as well as the news that takes 
place on campus. Often controversial, the 
TORCH was known for its outspokeness, 
candidness, and opinions regarding 
University related issues. All editing, 
reporting, photography and business 
management was handled by the staff 
which was comprised of students. 
Bearing the burden of the TORCH weight 
were Co-Editors Kevin O'Reilly and Dave 
Warren. Many laborious hours were spent 
by the staff and especially the editors in 
producing the TORCH each week for 
students to have every Friday.

The preseason outlook for the 1983 
men 's baseball team showed promise, 
unfortunately the season did not fare as 
well as had been hoped. 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

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.

Fulfilling preseason expectations, the 
Men's Basketball team concluded their 
1982-83 season with a record of 14 wins 
and 9 losses. 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.

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. "

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. 


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-

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 

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."

Murphy. 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 



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 

Seniors included Jerf Feroce, Dave 
Hayden, Ken Seureth jpd captain Steven 


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 

Fencing requires both mental and physical 
stamina and expertise, as well as speed, 
agility and coordination. "Things happen 


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. 


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 

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.

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. 



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# 



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 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. 



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.

'/ 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.

An impressive 10-4-2 regular season 
record, combined with consistently solid 
play, earned the SMU Men's Soccer Team 
their second Eastern College Athletic 
Conference play-off berth in three 
seasons. Under the coaching of Ken 
Fonseca and assistant Bruce Botelho, the 
83 Corsairs were a team of solid defense, 
controlled ball handling and aggressive 

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.

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. 





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.

season, played well throughout, and 
finished with a 7-4 record. 

Coached by Bob Gilkey, the roster 
comprised only two seniors: Mary 
McGinnis and Jo-Ann Strules. The other 
team members consisted of four juniors: 
Brenda Gerrior, Michelle Holbert, Karen 
'Connor, and Kathleen Thibault; a single 
sophomore, Susan Offner; and three 
freshmen: Evelyn Mortenson, Linda 
Orlando, and Cheryl Serras. 

At the Massachusetts Association of 
Intercollegiate Athletics' Tournament, the

Dr. Hogan comments on the atmosphere 
within the Department of Economics: 

"A major in economics provides a unique 
blend of the perspective that comes from 
a liberal education and the practical 
orientation of how the economy works 
. . . it is necessary to combine a wide 
variety of interests and methodologies in 
studying economics . . . The atmosphere 
is one that challenges students and 
faculty to acquire a working knowledge of 
a wide range of fields and apply that 
knowledge to economic issues . . . 
students are encouraged to learn how to 
think rather than what to think, and to 
apply this critical or analytical approach to 
understanding how the economic system 
works . . . 

. . . comments on department activities 
and projects: 

"The SMU Economics Association is the 
department's student organization and 
has sponsored a number of events this 
year . . . Many of our majors are actively 
involved in student government 
organizations . . . A wide range of faculty 
research projects are in progress . . . In 
addition to books and scholarly articles, 
the faculty engage in consulting activities 
at the national level as well as for the 
regional business community . . . 

. . . comments on what he hopes students 
will take with them: 

'Perspective, an ability to think clearly, 
and an ability to express their ideas and 
defend their arguments . . . to be able to 
understand and control the economic 
world they live in rather than being 
controlled by it . . . The ability to think as 
an economist no matter what career a 
student may choose . . . Economics is, 
among other things, the study of how 
decisions are made ... /An ability to 
express ideas . . . such expression 
includes not only literary expression but 
also quantitative expression, and the 
interpretation of quantitative information 
. . . These are all valuable tools no matter 
what career a student chooses. " 

Economics introduces the student to a 
variety of applied fields, which focus on 
international, national and regional 
economic problems. The major blends a 
liberal arts education with training in 
corporate and government decision 
making. It is concerned with the allocation 
of scarce resources. The discipline 
examines the individual and societal 
decisions made about, and the 
relationships among, the production, 
distribution, and consumption of goods 
and services. The economics students 
inherits a sound theoretical foundation in 
economic theory and economic statistics. 
Employment opportunities may be found 
in such areas as industrial organization, 
government policymaking, business 
practices, technological and 
environmental concerns, urban planning 
and forecasting groups. As well as being 
an ideal background for training in the law

Department of Mathematics 

The Mathematics students choose their 
curricula in such a way as to emphasize that 
role of mathematics which will be most 
useful to them in later years. Mathematics 
can be pursued as a scholarly discipline of an 
extraordinary kind — a creative art form — 
or it can be treated as a valuable tool in 
applied discipline. The Mathematician will be 
qualified for any number of positions in 
today's technological society. 

Dr. John commenting on the environment

Dr. Thomas Wassmer 


Department of Philosophy 

Philosophy has been labeled the cornerstone of 
the humanities. 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?"

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.

Dr. Zvi Bar-Yam 
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 . . . 


. . . 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

Department of Political Science 

Dr. Melanson comments on the 
atmosphere in the Political Science 

'One in which the students can learn to 
discuss and understand politics and along 
the way to prepare themselves for careers 
in government, law, the media, and varied 
occupations ... It is a real world 
atmosphere . . . one that is also 
intellectual . . . 

. . . comments on department strengths 
and activities: 


'Our students are doing interesting things 
— interning in law offices, working on 
political campaigns, writing for the Torch 
. . . We encourage faculty research with 
things like promotions and reward . . . 
What I like is the fact that our research 
finds its way into the classroom and 
relates to the student. 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.

Dr. James Riley 


Department of Psychology 

Dr. Riley comments on the atmosphere 
within the Department of Psychology: 

. . . comments on department activities 
and projects: 

'An atmosphere of accessability of faculty 
for students. 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 

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.

The PSYCHOLOGY ASSOCIATION consists of a group of interested students who would 
like to enhance classroom learning and relate it to the way in which psychology is 
employed in the nonacademic world. The Association schedules guest speakers, hold 
workshops and coordinates field trips to provide broader viewpoints and experience in the 
field. The Association is also the vehicle of communication between students and faculty 
on issues of curriculum, enrollment, budget, supplies and equipment.

Dr. John Bush 
Department of Sociology 

Dr. Bush comments on the department's 

"Our department is governed for most 
occasions by the strong input of the 
faculty . . . The chairperson is usually 
elected for one year . . . Strength is found 
in the diversity and training of the 
department members, many of whom are 
from America's finest universities . . . If 
students take advantage of the 
department's talent, they can have a 
creative education . . . 

comments on department activities: 

. . . commenting on what he would like 
the Graduates to leave with: 

'Some people — about one-third are 
involved in research, another group are 
community activist-type people working 
with women's groups and such, still 
others involve themselves in various 
groups such as P.T.A. and School 
Committees . . . 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. " 


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.

Accounting, as a discipline and as a 
profession, provides a means of obtaining 
information essential to modern industry 
in making policy decisions and in setting 
up plans for successful business 
management. It serves to maintain the 
system of checks and balances so as to 
reduce the need for supervision, and to 
minimize errors, fraud, and waste. 
Accounting also plays an important role in 
setting and enforcing standards of 
performance which improve efficiency, 
coordination and integration of business 

The curriculum in accounting is designed 
to acquaint students with the philosophy 
of accounting; to give them a 
comprehension of accounting theory; to 
instruct them in technique; to develop 
their skills in the performance of 
accounting; to train them to set up 
accounting systems and to interpret 
accounting data; and to develop a 
professional attitude. 

Accounting Graduates will find 
employment opportunities as public or 
industrial accountants or as accountants 
in government service or may choose to 
continue studies at the graduate level.

computer science major from a business 
perspective . . . 

... a final comment on what he would 
like Graduates to take with them: 

'Our goal is to create a problem-solving, 
decision-making mode of thinking . . . 
One way we do this is through presenting 
case studies and asking our students how 
they would solve the example . . . Bather 
than mere facts, they can apply this 
approach to their jobs in the real world."

Dr. Ronald Perry 


Department of Textile Sciences 

The Textile Sciences program is designed 
to prepare Graduates for the Textile 
Industry by emphasizing laboratory 
procedures and develop — technical and 
managerial skills. 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: 


'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 

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.

The College of Engineering offers 
programs leading to the Bachelor of 
Science degree in five engineering fields 
and in two specialties of engineering 
technology. Each curriculum provides the 
educational foundation for a diverse range 
of career opportunities in business, 
industry or government. The five 
engineering curriculums are analytically- 
oriented to prepare graduates for careers 
in research, development and design. 
They also provide a basis for graduate 
study in the more sophisticated and 
complex aspects of engineering and 
science. The two curriculums in 
engineering technology are more 
applications-oriented, to prepare for 
careers in manufacturing, plant operations, 
and technical sales.

Park was designed by our students, they 
did the marque at the campus entrance, 
the guard shack near the dorms, and the 
canopies over the loading area were also 
student-done . . . So is the dome that is 
planned to house a telescope . . . Some 
students have mapped various wetlands

' 7 tell my students to roll with the punches, 
to handle their frustrations . . . Go slowly 
and God willing, it will work out. " 


Civil Engineering is the engineering of 
constructed facilities, of bridges and 
building and tunnels and dams; of harbors 
and airports; of waterways and railways 
and highways; of water power and 
irrigation and drainage and water supply; 
of sewage and waste disposal and 
environmental health systems. It is the 
Civil Engineer who plans, designs, and 
constructs these facilities.

Computer Engineering focuses on the 
development, design, fabrication, and use 
of computers, ranging from large general 
purpose central computers to tiny special 
purpose microprocessors. Computer 
Engineers posses expertise in both 
hardware and software. The curriculum 
includes courses in programming, 
computation theory, numerical methods, 
digital logic, computer architecture, 
microprocessors, and digital design, as 
well as electric circuits and electronics. 
The computer engineering program shares 
many common elements with the 
computer science program, but differs in 
its greater emphasis on hardware and 
engineering applications. Computer 
Engineer Graduates will find employment 
with computer manufacturers and 
computer users.

Construction engineers marshal technical, 
economic and human resources to build 
great variety of structures. They convert 
the designs of the civil engineer and 
architect into actual buildings, bridges, 
highways, or any other built structure. To 
be successful, the construction engineer 
must posses both technical and 
managerial skills. The curriculum includes 
courses in surveying, construction of 
materials, contracts and specifications, 
soil mechanics, fluid mechanics, 
structures, electrical and mechanical 
systems, and construction, as well as 
technical and business electives. The 
construction engineering program differs 
from civil engineering because it is more 
focused on the management of 
construction projects. Graduates are 
employed by the construction industry.

Dr. Murphy comments on the 
environment within the Department of 
Electrical Engineering: 

'We provide a personal environment, a 
close atmosphere where learning can take 
place . . . Like most SMU students, alot 
of the E.E. students have a job, because of 
this fact they are more serious-minded 
about their education . . . This makes our 
job easier and helps create the close 
faculty-student relationship that we have 

comments on department activities: 

"There is research funded by outside 
agencies that is being done by our faculty, 
and students spend alot of extra time in 
the labs . . . 


... a final comment on what he would like 
the Graduates to take with them when 
they leave SMU: 

'Well, it's funny, I've found that twenty- 
thirty years down the road after college, 
people usually remember the relationships 
at school first; that someone had a good 
sense of humor or a particular quirk . . . I 
hope our students have developed as 
people as well as engineers. " 


The Electrical Engineering program is 
designed to prepare students for careers 
as practicing engineers in the wide variety 
of fields concerned with electrical and 
electronic devices and systems. Electrical 
Engineering encompasses many 
specialities such as communication, 
instrumentation, automation, power use 
and distribution, microwave devices and 
systems, and digital and analog 
techniques. In all of these specialities 
electrical engineers must be familiar with 
devices and systems and must be able to 
perform various functions such as 
research and development, systems 
analysis, management, production, 
testing, quality control and sales. Careers 
may be found in monitoring and control of 
the environment, space exploration, 
transportation systems, ocean 
engineering, energy resources and 
computer science.

Dr. Joyce Passos 


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. 


. . . 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. " 



Maureen Hull 


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 . . . 


... 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." 


Ann Jschirch 


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: 


... 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."

history and music programs, the 
curriculum in the first year is the same for 
all majors, with the field of concentration 
being selected in the sophomore year. Art 
students receive a professional education 
for the development of a high degree of 
initial professional competence in the arts. 
A coordinated program in humanities and 
social sciences scheduled to guide 
progress toward intellectual growth, to 
provide understanding of past and 
contemporary culture and to develop 
imagination. The music division of the 
college presents courses in the history, 
theory and practice of music. Both 
students and faculty participate in a wide 
range of musical performances. 


Dr. Barbara Noe/ 


College of Visual and Performing Arts 

Dean Noel comments on the environment 
within the College of Visual and 
Performing Arts: 

"One that helps each one of us to expand 
our views, just as the arts expand our lives 
. . . Artists tend to create their own 
worlds, but they must have stimulation 
from and be able to relate to the outside 
world . . . 

. . . comments on internal activities: 

'The faculty are involved in music, arts, 
and design activities . . . Our music 
professors are involved in performing and 
writing music, . . . Our fine arts professors 
exhibit regularly, as do the members of the 
design department . . . Our design faculty 
are very much connected to the industry 
which is good for our students . . . The 
Art Education faculty is actively involved in 
the community because of its concern 
with teaching . . . The Art History 
Department is also related to the 
community through schools and museums 


. . . final comments on what Dean Noe/ 
would like the Graduates to take with 
them upon leaving SMU: 

7 want our students to leave SMU with a 
broad idea of what the world has to offer 
and what they have to offer the world . . . 
We are not an isolated college — we are 
part of the university . . . We have offered 
more courses in the arts and music to 
non-art majors this year . . . Our students 
should leave with a good sample of 
courses from outside this college . . . I 
think a greater awareness would add 
breadth and depth to our students artistic 
decisions. " 


Dr. Dante Vena 


Department of Art Education 

Dr. Vena comments on the atmosphere 
within the Department of Art Education: 

. . . comments on projects and activities 
within the department: 


'One of relaxation in which the faculty can 
work on the areas that they do best . . . 
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

'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

warm, caring people who are able to

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. 
The core of the program is a balance 
between supervised field work in 
surrounding communities and university 
courses in theory and practice of art and

Dr. Thomas Puryear 


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: 


... 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. " 



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.

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 



Willoughby Elliott 
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 . . . 


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." 


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.

Margot Neugebauer 
Department of Design 

Chairperson Heugebauer comments on 
the type of environment in the Design 

"An environment which is conducive to 
learning and teaching. The Design 
Department has many strengths among 
which I count particularly the diverse 
faculty and students. 

. . . comments on department activities: 

"All my faculty are active designers and 
artists. They and the students as well, are 
constantly working to improve and 
expand their creative horizons . . . 

... a final comment on what the hopes 
the Graduates have when they leave 

'An awareness of world around them and 
the skills to learn, appreciate and to 
create good art. " 



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

Dr. Eleanor Carlson 
Department of Music 

Dr. Carlson comments on the atmosphere 
within the Music Department: 

'One that will enable students to deal 
with the music world, with what the 
standards they encounter after SMU will 
be. We encourage students to participate 
in music groups both on and off campus. 
The New Bedford Symphony, for one. 
Also, we encourage our students to work 
with one another, criticizing each other to 
hear other people's viewpoints. 

. . . comments on the department's 

7 think the size is a good strength. We're 
new and small . . . the faculty is strong 
and the students willing to learn . . . My 
favorite thing is to teach, I unfortunately 
get bogged down in paperwork. 

. . . comments on department activities: 


'We have an enormous amount of 
activities . . . we have faculty recitals, 
student organizations with faculty 
conductors . . . We have a Music Guild 
which meets once a month and 
coordinates the department . . . We 
sponsor a jazz festival . . . There is also a 
quest artist series and an opera workshop 
which puts on a performance in late 
spring . . . 

... a final comment on what she would 
like the Graduates to leave SMU with: 

'The ability to go on without us ... I 
have seen too many cases, particularly in 
the music field, of teachers who make 
their students dependent on them . . . Our 
aim is to be able to make them become 
independent, to be self-critical." 


The Music program allows rigorous study 
in either applied music (instrumental or 
vocal) or theory/composition. Both tracks 
include a core curriculum of music theory, 
history, musicianship and functional piano 
as well as the opportunity for more 
specialized studies. 

Graduates of the Music program have a 
variety of avenues open to them, from 
teaching and performing to advanced 
study and careers in related fields.

The MUSIC GUILD is comprised of representatives selected from the various performing 
groups of the Music Department. The Guild oversees funds allocated from student fees, 
and sponsors recitals. It arranges trips to musical events in Boston and organizes social 
events for music students. The Guild is very active in promoting musical activities for 
the entire campus.
