UMass Dartmouth and Stonehenge 










Design Theme 



This Yearbook is based upon the idea that all things in this world are 
interrelated, including Stonehenge and Umass Dartmouth's architecture. 
The reason this is the theme is due to the fact that these two 
architectural sites are similar in shape, form and material. 

First, the shape of Stonehenge is a circle with stone structures in 
the middle, (see figure A) Coincindentally, Stonehenge's basic structure 
looks very much like Umass Dartmotuh. The shape of Stonehenge 
also includes a lead in way, or as UMD would call it, a main entrance. 
This area in Stonehenge is where the heelstone is found. The heelstone 
is used to help track the motion of the sun and moon. This is also 
where the sun would set every evening. Although the sun does not set 
at our main entrance, it does set in the field adjacent to Group VI. 
A field that may have been left empty intentionally so the people at 
UMass Dartmouth could enjoy the brilliant sunsets. 

Another aspect of Stonehenge that helps track the motion of the sun 
and moon is the holes found in a circle around the stone structures. 
These holes are known as the Aubrey Holes, and they were the mechanism 
that tracked the days. During the course of the day the ancient people 
would move the rocks to the next hole. This is how the ancient people 
tracked when an eclipse would come. Although we have no holes around 
our campus to track days, we have a circle that goes around our 
buildings, we call it Ring Road. As well as the ring around the buildings 
Stonehenge also has hills that envelope the stone structures 
in the middle, the same that UMD has around its buildings near the 
parking lots. 

The form of the two structures are known to the architectural world 
as post and lentel structures. This means that the form has two posts and 
a lentel piece which goes atop the two posts to create a solid structure. 
(see figure B) 

The materials used by both architectural sites is rock and concrete. 
The ancients used rock to create Stonehenge because it was one of the 
only building materials at the time. So why did UMass Dartmouth use 
concrete, the rock of modern man, to build such an important structure. 
It is due in part to two influences. The first of course is Stonehenge, 
and the second being Roman architecture where rock or concrete was 
used to create all of the important buildings. This material adds a 
monumental quality to this University. 

Stonehenge was used to track the sun, the moon, and the stars. This 
is why astrology has been intertwined into the theme. Stonehenge was the 
place where the ancient people would try to uncover the mysteries 
of the skies and of the world, while UMass Dartmouth is the place where 
students come to learn more about the world and the culture around 
them. The fact that learning is the key to both of these sites makes the 
two of them monumental, even without their structures.

Astrological Overview 



Thousands of years ago, mankind looked to the heavens in order 
to shed some light on their place in the universe. Constellations 
were named, myths were created and legends were born. 

The zodiac, or "circle of animals" in Greek, was created to explain 
the apparent path of the sun, moon, and planets around the earth and 
the effect the movement of these celestial bodies had on mankind. 

The zodiac is a circular belt of the heavens which is divided into twelve 
thirty-degree segments known as "signs". These signs were marked 
by constellations, most of which were named for animals (the lion, 
bull, goat, ram) or sea creatures (crab, fish). As the sun, moon, and 
planets appeared to move around the zodiac, they rotated through each 
sign. A person born while the sun was passing through a sign, was said 
to be a member of that sign. 

In the thousands of years since the zodiac was created, the earth's 
axis has shifted. As a result, the constellations are no longer in their 
original positions in the zodiac. However, each of the thirty-degree signs 
has retained the name and symbolism of its original stellar marker. 



Within each element, there are three qualities, which decide how the 
sign behaves. Cardinal signs are the activists, the leaders. These signs- 
Aries, Cancer, Libra, and Capricorn-begin each of the four seasons 
(spring, summer, winter, fall). Fixed signs are the builders that happen 
in the middle of each season; Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Aquarius are 
thought to be blessed with focused concentration, stubborness, and 
stamina. Mutable signs-Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces-are 
catalysts for change at the end of each season; these are flexible, 
adaptable, mobile signs. 

The polarity of a sign is it's positive or negative "charge". It can be 
masculine-Ktwe, positive, or yang-like the air and fire signs. Or it can 
be feminine-mctm, negative, or yin-like the water and earth signs. 
The polarities of each sign alternate around the zodiac, each sign exerting 
an effect on it's neighbor. 

Finally, we consider each sign's place in the order of the zodiac. 
Each sign is quite different from its neighbors, yet each seems to grow 
out of its predecessor. Like links in a chain, each sign is reliant upon 
its position for strength, stability, and a balance of energies. 




<p 




X) 




The symbolism and qualities of each sign of the zodiac were 

not determined at random but, rather, evolved systematically through 

mankind's own observations. Each sign is made up of four different 

components which, when combined, work together to create a unique 

"personality" for each sign of the zodiac. These four components 

are the sign's element, its quality, its polarity, and its order in the zodiac 

belt. 

The four elements (earth, air, fire, and water) are the building blocks 
of astrology. In ancient times, it was commonly believed that all things 
were composed of combinations of earth, air, fire and water. This 
included the human character, which was fiery/choleric, earthy/melancholy, 
airy/sanguine, and watery/phlegmatic. The elements also correspond 
to our emotional (water), physical (earth), mental (air), and spiritual (fire) 
natures. 

The fire signs-Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius-embody the characteristics 
of that element. Optimism, warmth, hot tempers, enthusiasm, and spirit 
are typical of these signs. Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn are earthy- 
more grounded, physical, materialistic, organized, and deliberate than fire 
people. Air signs-Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius-are mentally oriented 
communicators. Water signs-Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces-are emotional, 
creative, and caring.

Memorial 



Barbara Eckhardt 

1956-1996 

Respected Artist and Teacher 

Dies at Age 40 



Barbara Ann Eckhardt, associate professor of textile design and 
fiber arts, and a textile artist of extraordinary talent, died May 18 
at her New Bedford home of heart failure following treatment for 
breast cancer. She was forty years old. 

Professor Eckhardt had exhibited her artwork and taught workshops 
throughout the United States. She taught at both Boston 
University and the Swain School of Design before joining the University 
of Massachusetts Dartmouth faculty in 1988. 

Born in Iowa City, where her parents, Dr. Richard D. and Catherine 
Eckhardt still live, she attended the University of Iowa for two 
years and received her bachelor's degree in fine arts from the Cleveland 
Institute of Art. She earned her Master's of Fine Arts from Cranbrook 
Academy of Art. 

Marked often by the image of a bird, Eckhardt's fiber art has 

been featured both in art magazines such as Weavers Magazine and in 

national newspapers. In 1994, a review in The Boston Globe praised 

the richness of her work and her vision. Eckhardt's art found a home in 

collections both public and private, from the US Department of 

State to the Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, where she exhibited just 

last year. Often, she and colleague Majorie Durko Puryear would be asked 

to show their work in the same venues. 

She brought her insights to students in the many centers of her art, from 
Arrowmont and the Penland School of Crafts to conferences accross 
the nation. On the UMass Dartmouth campus, she inspired both creativity 
and admiration. 




She was a member of the American Craft Council, Surface Design 
Association, Textile Society of America and the Handweavers Guild of 
America. She is survived by her parents; three sisters, Dale Eva 
Eckhardt of Casper, WO, Catherine Bartholow of Elmhurst, IL, and Jane 
McMullen of Bethesda, MD; two nieces and four nephews.

Kenneth J. Furtado 
Biology Major- 
Class of 1 997 



Kenneth Furtado was within less than a year of graduating with 

his bachelor's degree of science in Biology at UMass Dartmouth when his 

life tragically ended in an auotmobile accident. He had earned 

the respect of his peers and his teachers during his undergraduate studies, 

and his loss was deeply felt by everyone at the University. Because 

Ken was so close to completing his course of study, the Degree of 

Bachelor of Science was awarded posthumously in June 1997. Ken had a 

strong interest in Botany, and his intensions were to complete 

his university studies in biology and then go on to graduate studies in 

forestry. In recognition of his academic achievements, friendships 

and interests, the Biology Department planted a Franklin tree (Franklinia 

alatamaha) in the Arboretum next to the Violette and Group II 

buildings. Franklinia was discovered by botanist John Bartram on the 

banks of the Alatamaha River, Georgia, in 1770 and named for 

Benjamin Franklin. The species is extinct in nature, but it is maintained 

today under cultivation in gardens throughout the world. This tree 

then, with its interesting botanical and evolutionary history, is a fitting 

way to pay tribute to Ken Furatdo and his botanical aspirations.

Dedication 

Dr. Rita Duarte Marinho 

Assistant Dean of Arts and Sciences 



A defintion of the word beautiful. ..To the current and prevailing generation 
the word beautiful refers not to a person's exterior but, rather, to those 
interior qualities which in total add up to an individual of warmth and 
worth, of heart and soul. 

The University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Yearbook Staff is proud to 
dedicate this book to one beautiful women. ..Rita Duarte Marinho. A 
recipient of the Distinguished Service to the University Award in 1997 at 
the Graduation-Honors Recognition Dinner, her award went as such: 

Dr. Rita Duarte Marinho, we may measure the impact your personality, 
teaching, and advocacy have had on our university family by the measure 
of two devices. One of them is the seismograph since you have moved the 
earth in essential and amazing ways for many of us during your tenure 
here. The human heart, an instrument of exquisite sensitivity and memory, 
is another. 

As the assistant dean of the College of Arts and Science, and as a 
professor of political science and women's studies, you have worked a 
powerful magic on us as students: because you have expected great things 
of us, we have felt compelled to deliver them; because you have seen the 
best in us, we have wanted to live up to your vision; because you have 
fought our battles, we have felt they were worth winning. Advising, 
encouraging, prodding, supporting, inspiring, you have rightly made 
students the focus of your professorial and administrative roles. Not only 
have you stretched our minds and shaped our characters, but with your 
contagious enthusiasm and ardent commitment, you have helped us turn 
even impossible dreams into reality. Ever our champion, you have been 
like a mother tiger protecting her cubs, repeatedly demonstrating the 
intensity of your dedication to our welfare and repeatedly making our 
needs your imperatives. 



In the community at large, as well as within this school, you have always had the 
eloquent courage to speak for those whose cause is worthy but whose voice is 
small. Known nationwide as a feminist scholar and pioneer for women's rights, 
you have worked extensively for the YWCA, serving for six years as the executive 
vice-president of its national board. You have also been a crusader for Portuguese 
Americans, helping to increase the general population's awareness and appreciation 
of their culture and contributions to society and holding active membership in 
many related associations. Currently the president of the new regional Portuguese 
American Scholarship Foundation, you have researched and written a seminal work 
about the Portuguese experience in America. Additionally, by combining your 
educational and civic expertise with your skills in solving community problems, 
you have won national recognition by creating and developing Fall River's Atlantis 
Charter School, the first such school to be accepted by the Commonwealth of 
Massachusetts. 

Your departure cuts a great hole in the fabric of this institution. Though saddened 
by your leaving, we are profoundly grateful for the legacy of your brilliant and 
indomitable spirit and are proud to have been your students, your community, 
and your school. 

For soaring high above the commonplace and teaching us to do likewise, we the 
students of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth pay you tribute.

Peter Cressy 

Chancellor 

University of 

Massachusetts Dartmouth 



Dear Class of 1997: 

Congratulations to each of you for achieving this major milestone in your life. You graduate 

this year ready to face a world of great promise and of great challenge. More than at any time in 

recent memory the world's economy is prospering. Medicine, science, and technology are 

advancing at a rapid rate and there is a new spirit of optimism. On the other hand, around the 

world violence, tragedy, and bigotry are everyday occurrences. You, therefore, are faced with 

the challenge of extending peace, prosperity, and civility to every corner of the world and to every 

level of society. 

Although many individuals such as your parents, friends, faculty, and staff have supported you 
as you moved toward graduation, in the end you did it yourself. In the journey toward graduation 
you learned important skills and understanding: communication, teamwork, discipline, persistence, 
and humanity. Perhaps most importantly, however, you learned how to learn. The world is changing 
so rapidly that the capacity to learn is the most critical attribute you take with you from your 
time at UMass Dartmouth. 



Your University is proud of you. Each of us who stays behind wishes you well and hopes you will 
continue to be a part of your alma mater. 

Sincerely, 




Peter H. Cressy 
Chancellor

Sean Carpenter 
Student Senate President 
University of 

Massachusetts Dartmouth 
1 996- 1 997 




To the Class of 1997: 

It is my pleasure to congratulate you on your graduation from the University of Massachusetts 
Dartmouth. The Class of 1997 has taken part in the quality education that a state funded school 
can give; the class has also played an active role in serving the betterment of programs for the 
student body. Many students in the Class of 1997 have diligently worked on keeping UMD the fine 
institution in which it is. I know that you will cherish the memories that you have created during 
your college career and can also feel proud to call Umass Dartmouth your alma mater. Now, as 
alumni, you have the opportunity to help future UMD graduates attain their career goals, as former 
UMD students have helped many of you. 

On behalf of the 1996-97 Student Senate, I wish you the best of luck. 1997 is one of the best 
years a student could become a graduate from college, this is due in part to the economy, which 
has been booming and created many new job opportunities throughout the world. Never forget 
your roots, especially those people who have made you what you are today. Continue to work as 
hard as you have at UMass Dartmouth, and never let go of the skills that you have acquired at 
this institution. Once again, Congratulations and best of luck in all of your future endeavors. 

Sincerely, 

Sean M. Carpenter 

1996-1997 Student Senate President

Treasurer 






To the Class of 1997, 

For the past four or five years, we have all envisioned our graduation day. June 8th, 1997 was our 
moment to pause and reflect on our lives at UMass Dartmouth. Now we hold that vision as fond 
memory we will cherish for years to come. 

We can look back and be proud of all we have accomplished at UMass. Hard work, dedication and 
perseverance, have reward us with what we set out for - a degree. The challenges we have 
encountered and overcome, have prepared us all for the future. Whether we are beginning our 
career or are heading to graduate school, the knowledge we have gained will be vital as we step 
into a vast world. 

Of course college is about learning and achieving but it is also about growing as a person and 
having fun. The friends we have made here will be probably the best friends we will ever have. 
Remember all the Rats, Bus trips to Boston and Providence, Senior Class Blast Off, Halloween Bash, 
Spring Break 97', 100 and 50 Days 'til Graduation, and a fun filled Senior Week! I hope that you 
will look back upon your senior year and remember all these good times. 



Thank you for giving me and my fellow class officers, Mary-Jo DaSilva, Rebecca Charron, and Allison 
Abrams, the opportunity to serve you this past year. I hope that we have served you well. Best of 
luck to all of you, and may happiness and success be in all your future endeavors. 

Sincerely, 

Ann Jones 

Senior Class President

National Events 




1996 Democratic National Convention 

President Bill Clinton and Vice President 
Al Core maintained a strong and consistent 
lead in the polls during their campaign for four 
more years in the White House. The Democratic 
team campaigned on a "four more years" 
platform that featured a strong economy and a 
lowered crime rate. During his first terme, Clinton 
formed a very close partnership with Gore, 
who served as confidant and adviser. 




President Clinton with daughter Chelsea 

Sixteen-year-old Chelsea Clinton hit the 
campaign trail with her father, the president of 
the United States. She did not play an 
active role in the presidential campaign, but all 
of her limited appearances were great 
successes. She tried to keep a quiet private 
life. But it was tough. She attended a 
private school in Washington and her constant 
Secret Service escort did not leave much 
freedom for parties and dances. 




Hillary Clinton at the Democratic National Convention 

Hillary Rodham Clinton shied away from 
confrontation. The 48-year-old First Lady championed 
the massive health-care reform plan but it 
never became law. Nevertheless, Mrs. Clinton pushed 
ahead and had a long history of work on 
children's issues. She buried the image of a super- 
activist First Lady and become a model of traditional 
political spousehood. 




Astronaut Shannon Lucid 



Shannon Lucid is a new record holder. 

The 53-year-old shuttle astronaut veteran set 

the women's record for consecutive days 

in orbit — i 88 — beating Russian cosmonaut Elena 

Kondakova. She also amassed 223 days 

in orbit since 1995, making her America's

PARTY >, 



Ross Perot 



Ross Perot, who four years earlier won more 
votes than any other independent 
Presidential candidate in 80 years, launched a 
campaign as the 1996 nominee of the 
Reform Party. The 66-year-old Texas billionaire 
was a less formidable figure than 
he was in 1994, but a very vocal candidate 
nevertheless. Lacing his speeches with 
inspirational anecdotes from American history 
and his own life, Perot lambasted budget 
deficits and big government. 




1996 Republican Convention 



Bob Dole retired after 35 years in Congress 
to devote himself full time to running for 
President. At the age of 73, the former senator 
from Kansas would be the oldest person 
elected to a first term as president. As his 
running mate he picked Jack Kemp, an 
active Republican and former cabinet member. 
Dole and Kemp promised to give President 
Clinton a "run for his money". They attacked 
the President's character and ethics while 
promoting the Republican 15 percent tax cut.

MACARENA 



3 




Macarena 



The Macarena hit all of the charts— from Latin 
to Pop-and enlivened dance floors all 
over the world. The song was first released three 
years ago and it became a big hit in 
Spain. Then someone had the bright idea to 
market the song internationally. Numerous 
Macarena versions have added variations to the 
basic moves of the dance, which requires a 
360-degree turn to be completed in four jumps 
to the right. 







Atlanta Olympics Bomb Site 



A deadly explosion disrupted the Olympic 
Games. Just as the games were turning Atlanta 
into a giddy metropolis overflowing with 
tourists, a black powdered pipe bomb packed 
with nails exploded in the crowded Centennial 
Olympic Park. One person died instantly and 
another died of a heart attack. More than 100 
people were injured and, as the school year 
opened, nobody was charged with the crime. 




Michael Johnson — 1 996 Olympic Games 

Olympic gold medal winner Michael Johnson 
has what track coaches call speed endurance-the 
ability to carry top speed. Plus he proved that 
he had endurance. Johnson won an unprecedented 
double win in the Summer Olympics in Atlanta. 
He won the 200 and the 400 meter race. He was 
also the overwhelming favorite in the 200, but 
a case of food poisoning weakened him and he 
failed to qualify for the final. 




Kerri Strug with Coach Bella Karolyi 

The seven members of the U.S. Women's 
Gymnastics Team won the unlikeliest of the 
gold medals in the unlikeliest of fashions. 
Team meber Kerri Strug made the clinching 
vault on a bad ankle, and became an 
Olympic heroine the instant she landed. Her 
coach, Bella Karolyi, carried her to the 
stand to be awarded the gold medal. 





TWA Flight 800 Crash Site 



Months after TWA Flight 800 exploded 
in midair in the summer of 1996, investigators 
were still searching for a cause. The 
Boeing 747 jumbo jet plunged into the Atlantic 
Ocean off the coast of Long Island, N.Y., just 
minutes after taking off from Kennedy 
Airport for Paris. All 230 people on board 
were killed. The theories ranged from a 
mechanical failure to a bomb, from a exploded 
fuel tank to a missile. 




Stock Exchange 



The stock market surged to record highs 
as the school year began. It was a continuation 
of one of the greatest bull markets in 
history. The Dow Jones industrial average hit 
record highs in late September, and closed 
over 6,000 in October. The spark that kept the 
markets moving upward was news that 
suggested the economy was slowig down, thus 
keeping interest rates low.

1996 World Series 



The New York Yankees brought a world 
championship back to the Bronx by edging the 
defending champion Atlanta Braves 3-2 in 
game six of the World Series. This was the first 
championship for the Yankees since 1978, 
and their twenty-third overall. 




Super Bowl XXXI 



It was late in the third quarter when 
Desmond Howard of the Green Bay Packers 
returned his first kick off for a touchdown 
as a pro. And it was a whopper-a 99 yard 
return for the longest kick off return in 
Super Bowl history. The Packers went on to 
beat the New England Patriots 35-21 in 
Super Bowl XXXI. 




Presidential Inauguration 



William Jefferson Clinton began his second term 
in January 1997 as the 42nd President of 
the United States. He placed his left hand on a 
family bible held by his wife, Hillary, and 
took the 35 word oath of office administered by 
Chief Justice William H. Rehnquist, who wished 
him "Good Luck". 




Newt Gingrich 



For the first time in its history, the House 
of Representatives voted to reprimand 
and fine its speaker for bringing discredit on 
the House. The House Ethics Committee 
ruled that House Speaker, Newt Gingrich, was 
involved in using tax-exempt foundation 
money for his political ends.

Hong Kong 



Hong Kong was a Great Britain Colony on the 
brink of great change in 1997. Great 
Britain's lease on Hong Kong was set to expire 
on July I, 1997 and the Chinese were 
poised to reclaim the island. After 100 years of 
British rule, British administration and 
jurisdiction over Hong Kong will end and it will 
become a Special Administrative Region 
of the People's Republic of China. 




Benjamin Netanyahu 



Benjamin Netanyahu, the 47-year-old leader 
of the Lukid Political Party, was elected 
Prime Minister of Israel. He declared that his 
government would honor the existing 
agreements on peace and security issues and 
would continue to negotiate toward a 
final peace agreement in the Middle East. 




Saddam Hussein 



For the first time since the 1993 Gulf War, 
the American Military took action against Iraq 
and its leader, Saddam Hussein. Iraq sent 
its troops into the Kurdish enclave in Northern 
Iraq and in retaliation, the United States 
launched air attacks against Hussein's southern 
air defenses. Hussein has abused his people 
since the ruling Baath Party assumed power 
nearly thirty years ago. Since the end of 
the Gulf War he has continued to assasinate 
his political enemies. 




Boris Yeltsin 



Boris Yeltsin was re-elected President of Russia 
and pledged to continue the reforms he 
began five years ago. However, the 65-year-old 
president began immediately to show 
the signs of a severe heart problems. It was 
announced that he had at least two heart 
attacks in the past two years and open-heart 
surgery was considered the only solution to his 
life-threatening disease. 




Israeli-Palestinian Conflict 



Peace in the Middle East remained unstable as the 
school year began. A crisis erupted after Israel 
opened a new exit in a tunnel alongside a plateau, 
raising suspicions among Muslims that the 
Isreali were seeking to change the delicate religious 
balance in Jerusalem's Old City. The incident 
proved to be the breaking point in mounting 
Palestinian frustrations with the lack of movement in 
carrying out the peace accords. Demonstrations 
followed where nearly 100 people were killed. Then 
emergency meetings were arranged by President 
Clinton in Washington between Benjamin Netanyahu 
and Yasir Arafat.

An Artist 



"I would like to talk about my favorite subject - an artist. 

I've been an actor for 62 years. I've done a lot of pictures - 300, as 
a matter of fact. I've painted maybe 5,000 paintings, and done a 
thousand sculptures. 

Now, after 62 years, I know the reason the artist works and lives and 
has his being. The reward he seeks. The only reward he really cares 
about without which there is nothing. It's the spirit of mankind and 
that's of magic. To see that spirit. He does not just have to be a 
painter or an actor. An artist can be a gardener trimming a rose, a 
cook making a tasty dish, a carpenter building a house, or a basketball 
player shooting a three-point basket. Michael Jordan is a thing of 
beauty. He is a work of art. 

Everyone here is an artist if you are striving to find the moment of 
life's beauty. I am no prophet. I've seen the moment of my greatness 
flicker. I've seen the eternal footman take my coat and slicker and, in 
short, I was afraid. 

At my age, I am still discovering. Imagine what you can do with your 
energy! Working, what you can do with all that space in front of you. 
I'm counting on the plans to answer the sickness of our rivers and seas. 

A friend of mine was once asked, 'What do you seek?' He answered, 'I 
do not seek. I find'. Let us become the finders of new truths. 



Sometimes we like the strength which, in our young days, moved heaven 
and earth. Our hearts were made weak by time and faith. To strive. To 
seek. To find. And never, never to give up the spirit. 

This is the reason the artist works and lives and has his being. That from 
life's clay and his own nature, from his father's common earth, of sweat 
and violence and bitter anguish, he may distill a beauty of an everlasting 
form. To enslave and conquer man by his own enchantment, to cast his 
spell across the generations, to beat death down upon its knees and to 
kill death utterly. To fix eternally, with grappling hooks of his own art. 

This is the artist. Life's hungry man, a glutton of eternity, the beauty of 
glory and miser slave. The artist is cold and cruel as hell — to get the 
thing he wants, to achieve the thing he values, and must do. Or die. 

He is at once life's monstrous outcast. Life's beauty drunken lover. Man's 
bloody, ruthless pitiless and utterly relentless enemy and the best friend 
that mankind ever had. A creature, compact with all whose life with all 
its toil, and sweat and bitter anguish, is the highest, the grandest, the 
nobelist and the most unselfish, most superbly happy, good and fortunate 
life that man can know or any man attain. 

He is the language of man's buried heart. He is man's music and a life's 
great discoverer. The eye that sees, the key that can unlock, a tongue 
that will express the buried treasure in the hearts of men. That all men 
know. And what not one man in a million ever is. 



I have become known as a man who roams the world with a hungry 
heart. I am part of all that I have met. And how dull it is to pause. To 
make an end. Not to shine in use. I want to sail beyond the sunset 
with the western stars. 



At the end, he is his father's son. He is at once, therefore, the parent 
and the son of life. He is most like man in his very differences. He is 
what all men are. And what not one man in a million ever is. He has all. 
Knows all. Sees all that any man on earth can see and hear and know. 
And never, never gives up the spirit."

Corsairs win another LEC regular season 
and tournament title 

Any coach will tell you its not how your team starts the season, its how the 
team finishes the season. Coach Brian Baptiste's Corsairs were a perfect 
example of that old coaches' axiom. UMass Dartmouth was 1-4 and 2-5 in 
the early going before turning things around and posting an 18-2 record in 
its last 20 games. The Corsairs posted a 20-7 mark complete with another 
LEC regular season and post season championship and the subsequent 
invitation to the NCAA Division III tournament. UMass Dartmouth closed out 
the regular season ranked 20th nationally and second in the New England 
Division III poll.

Mike Lane wins two Division III All-America awards 

Mike Lane earned NCAA Division III All America honors in the two events in 
which he competed at the Division III national championships held at the 
University of Miami (Ohio). Breaking his own school records set earlier in the 
season in both events, Lane took second place overall in the 200 Breast with 
a time of 2:03.35 and fifth in the 100 Breast with a time of :56.98. Lane became 
UMass Dartmouth's fifth men's swimmer to earn NCAA Division III All America 
distinction and the first since Tom Egan won a pair of Division III national 
championships in diving in 1992. 

Lane's record setting performance in the 200 Breast lowered his own school 
record by an incredible 7.54 seconds. Lane first set the Corsairs' 200 Breast 
record at 2:10.89 in a Nov. 26 meet against Bridgewater State. In the 100 
Breast, Lane's fifth-place time of :56.98 was the fourth time he lowered the 
UMass Dartmouth record during the season. At the New England Championships 
held at Williams College, Lane posted a time of 58.45. Lane also set school 
records in the 100 Breast during the UMass Dartmouth Invitational against 
Trinity College. At the UMass Dartmouth Invitational, Lane captured six 
individual first-place finishers, his best performance of the season. He had four 
double-victory swim meets and turned in three victories in his UMass Dartmouth 
debut against Bridgewater State College.

Track 



At the NCAA Division III National Championship Meet held in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, 
Bradley Cardoza placed ninth in the 35 lb weight competition with a throw 
of 5 1 -9. Cardoza had qualified for the national championships by taking second 
place in the New England Division III championships with a throw of 55-9. At 
the New England Division III championship meet held at MIT, Cardoza's streak 
of first-place finishes was broken with a second-place finish ( 55-9) in the 35 
lb weight. Cardoza had taken first place in the same event for two weeks in 
a row when he led the field at the Smith College Invitational. Cardoza, who 
already had a provisional qualification for the NCAA Division III meet (53-9 
1/4), finished first at Smith with a throw of 52-7. Cardoza captured first place 
at a competition held at the Coast Guard Academy with a toss of 53-2 3/4. 

UMass Dartmouth's triple jump team of Mitch Sousa and Ken Papetti had a 
solid showing in the New England Division III meet. Sousa finished fifth with 
a leap of 43-1 1/2 and his teammate, Papetti, placed eighth with 42-4. Sousa 
also competed in the pentathalon and took home eighth place with a combined 
score of 2,93 1 points. Julie Briggs was the Corsairs' top performer at the annual 
ECAC Championship meet held at Boston University. Briggs captured sixth place 
in the 20 lb. weight with a toss of 45 feet, 1/2 inch. The toss was good enough 
to make Briggs a provisional qualifier for the NCAA Division III championship 
meet. Three Corsair track athletes turned in strong individual performances at 
the Smith College Invitational, achieving qualifying marks for post season 
competition. With a finishing time of 3:18.74 in the 1000 meters, Kristen Shea 
qualified for the New England Division III Championship Meet. Maura McDonald 
and Becky Robitaille both earned invitations to the ECAC Championship meet 
with their performances at Smith College. McDonald finished the 1500 meters 
in 4:57 and Robitaille placed seventh in the 55-meter dash at :07.74 to earn 
spots in the ECAC Championship Meet. 

Rose closes career as two-time Div. Ill 
All-America in javelin 

On the very last throw of his college career, Keith Rose earned All-America honors 
for a second consecutive season with an eighth-place finish in the new javelin 
at the NCAA Division III National Championships held at University of Wisconsin 
Lacrosse. Earlier in the week, Rose broke his own UMass Dartmouth record to 
reach the final round of the event. Rose's throw of 204-6 broke his school record 
of 203-3 set last year. In the final round of the competition, Rose reinjured 
his hamstring and was suffering from an elbow injury, yet was able to move 
up from ninth place to finish eighth with a throw of 189-6 and earn All-America 
distinction. Rose is UMass Dartmouth's first two-time All-America performer in 
men's track and field since James White earned back-to-back All-America honors 
in 1985 and 1986. Rose earned Division III All-America distinction as a junior 
with his fourth-place finish (196-10) in the 1996 NCAA Division III Nationals. 

Natarsha Silva long jumps her way 
into the record book 

As a starting guard for the Corsairs' women's basketball team, first-year player 
Natarsha Silva gave fans a few glimpses of her athleticism, but it wasn't until 
she set foot on the long-jump runway during the spring that her outstanding 
athletic ability become obvious. Beginning with a first-place finish in her first 
meet for UMass Dartmouth, Silva put together a tremendous season which included 
school records, national recognition and a berth in the NCAA Division III 
championship meet.

Cross Country 




LEC cross country crowns 
belong to UMass Dartmouth 

For Coach Jon Hird's cross country teams, the double team victory is the third 
straight time both men and women have captured their respective LEC title races. 
Led by co-captain Tom Steele, who successfully defended his title of individual 
race champion, UMass Dartmouth's men kept two streaks alive-nine straight LEC 
titles and five consecutive Corsair runners to win the individual men's 
championship. For the women, co-captain Maura McDonald was the overall 
winner, leading the Corsairs to their third straight title and fifth overall in the 
LEC's nine-year history 

A three-time All-LEC selection, Steele captured his second straight LEC 
championship race and three of his teammates earned All-LEC honors as the 
Corsairs swept their ninth consecutive LEC Men's Cross Country title in the 
conference's nine-year history. Steele, earning All-LEC honors for a third time, 
placed first over the 8,000-meter course at Mansfield (CT) Hollow State Park. 
Steele crossed the finish line almost a minute ahead of the race's second-place 
finisher. 

Michael Paulin, Wayne Demery and Tim Gonet earned All-LEC honors by finishing 
third through fifth respectively. Paulin, who was clocked at 27:00 for third, joins 
Steele as a three-time All-LEC runner. Demery, a two-time All-LEC honoree, 
followed behind Paulin in 27:27 for fourth and Gonet earned his second All-LEC 
honors at 27:34 for fifth. UMass Dartmouth took the the team title with 2 1 points. 

The Corsairs took three of the next four places with All-LEC honors going to Karla 
Jarquin, who placed third at 1 9:2 1 , Tara Carson in fifth at 1 9:5 1 , and Kerri Millet 
in sixth at 20:21. Co-captain Laura Caselden was 1 0th in 20:55. 





Both squads concluded their seasons with solid showings at the NCAA Division 
III Regionals at Williams College. The men finished 12th in the regionals as Steele 
was the Corsairs' top finisher in Nth place overall (26:34). McDonald's 22nd 
place finish helped UMass Dartmouth to a 13th place finish at the NCAA Division 
III Regionals at Westfield State College.

Balance 
I. 

To adjust, as weights in the scales of a balance, so as to bring them to 
an equipoise; to weigh in a pair of scales or balance. 
2. 

To poise on a point or a small base; to bring into or keep in equilib- 
rium; as, to balance oneself on a tightrope. 
3. 

To compare by estimating the relative force, importance, or value of 
different things. 
4. 

To regulate so as to keep in a state of just proportion. 
5. 

To counterpoise; to make of equal weight or force, also to be equal to 
in weight, force, etc.; to neutralize or offset. 
6. 

To find any difference which may exist between the debit and the credit 
sides of an account. 
7. 
To settle by paying what is due. 



Balance is not a word thought of daily but that word effects each of us 
every single day. Balance is used throughout our lives; as our parents let 
us go to college to find our own lives, we had many decisions to make 
on our best judgement. Finally, we chose what we wanted, anything from 
friends to classes, to go out or stay in and study, we were the master's 
of our fate, our destiny was in our own hands. 

At this time we run into another point of letting go, as our parents 
let go of us, we are to let go of youth and jump into adulthood. We are 
never to return to the campus in North Dartmouth as undergraduate 
students, rather it will be our choice to come back, for homecoming or 
to watch the beautiful sunset from the Campus Center. It is now our turn 
to think about the the future and the balances we must have between 
work and play, family and friends, and the physical and mental condition 
of ourselves. 

This is just one phase of our life coming to a close, the new choices 
brought to us are enormous; to get a job, to go to graduate school, to 
live off of Mom and Dad for just one more year; the choice is yours 
but always remember in order to become sucessful, balance must exist in 
our lives. 



Good luck to everyone entering this new phase of life. It is a time 
for excitement, anticipation, job hunting, soul searching, and long distance 
phone bills to keep in touch with old roomates and friends. The 
University has prepared us for this new phase and we should jump to the 
opportunity to live up to the expectations set on us by our parents, 
techers, and mentors. The class of 1997 will never come back to UMD as 
students, but it will remain forever in our fondest memories.

The famous (or should I say infamous) five-year plan. Having to go 
an extra year and end off with only one degree, often not in the major 
you began your college career in.Jf this is your situation, then you are 
a failure, aren't you? This is the question I was faced with, and I 
guess to a point still have to deal with. Entering my fourth year at this 
school I came to a realization: I absolutely hated my major, and to tell 
the God's honest truth I really don't recall if I was on track to 
graduate in four years or not. So in my so-called senior year, the year of 
graduation, I began by switching both my major and the college I 
was enrolled in. Having done this, nearly everyone who knew me accused 
me of being insane or somehow lacking in brain power, and to my 
shame I actually questioned my decision. With this school year coming to 
a close, having spent one year in my new major, and also being 
forced to deal with the fact that the class that I entered UMD with, I will 
not be leaving with, once again I questioned my sanity. After over 
nine months, and much reflection I have come to a conclusion. I am not 
insane, nor am I a failure. As far as personal achievements go, 
I've been a fairly instrumental part in bringing new students to this 
campus and making them comfortable here. I also had a part in 
getting 311 to campus, was able to do some artwork for them, and 
talked in length with the band, (and seeing as I've been a fan 
for four years this was no small thing!) I also built a coffee shop with 
some friends. If you remember what this place was like our freshman 
year, then you know how impossible that seemed. I've been able to give 
some extremely talented people, be they poets or musicians, a place 
to showcase themselves and their talents. When I was a freshman I landed 
in the purple pit, living in a suite with such a mixture of lifestyles 
and personalities, we should have killed each other, instead I met some of 
the best people I'll have the luck of ever meeting. I've come across 
many people on this journey, some assholes yes, but mostly pretty good 
individuals. 



Good or bad most have fallen by the wayside, which in some cases is 

unfortunate, but that is life. While we were together we had 

some amazing times, as much for the people they were spent with as 

the experiences. As strange as this may sound to people who 

know me, I would not change anything. Because these are things which 

make me who I am now and who I will be. The editor of this 

yearbook (who also asked me to write this) once said one of the truest 

things I have ever heard. "Who and what we are as a person 

is only made up by and remembered for the marks we leave and the 

experiences we have..." and to further that the lives we touch. In 

my time here I have also fallen in love, had my heart broken, almost 

been conned into running for class president, been tattooed, made 

some friends, made some enemies, and even got accused of stealing the 

Jimmi Hendrix painting! I also attended a few classes. While at 

times the pressure gets to me, it has been a great ride. So if when 

looking back at your college experience the best you can come up with 

is you graduated in four years, a matching G.P.A. and a degree— 

I think you missed the point of this whole thing. While the way I did 

things definitely wasn't cost effective, I got my moneys worth. I 

didn't earn the right to graduate with the class of 1997, but I guess in a 

way I still get to be part of it, and that is pretty damn cool. To 

all of you who I've met over the years who have touched my life in some 

way (and there are quite a few) I thank you and hope I gave 

you something positive in return. Enjoy your life and live it to the fullest 

(right down to the second) because our days are numbered and 

life is pretty damn miserable when you are not true to yourself. To every 

one of you, much success (even the white hats!) 

Stay tuned.Jts just the beginning!

A Swan Song from an Ugly Duckling 



Laura Stout 

Reprint from the last 

issue of The Torch 



I guess that since this is the last issue of the Torch for this year (and 
probably my last issue of the Torch forever), I should try and leave you 
with some words of wisdom. Unfortunately, I don't have any. 
I would love to write an earth-shattering editorial that would split apart 
the very fabric of your being, rock the foundations of this campus, and 
generally bring enlightenment and/or disillusionment to your very 
existence. ..but it ain't gonna happen. You and I both know that this is, 
basically, a masturbatory exercise. And to the two or three dozen people 
who are actually reading this; you know that nothing I say will amount 
to a hill of beans on this campus (to paraphrase Bogey). 

So why bother? you ask. 
Why not? 

I've been beating my head against these gray cement walls for seven 
years now (give or take a semester or two) and it would seem 
pathetically anticlimactic to give up now. So, if only to make myself feel 
some sense of closure, I've taken on this thankless task of trying to 
condense my entire seven-year college career into this one editorial (and 
hopefully provide some insight in the process). Seven years of growth, 
experience, thoughts and emotions distilled into a five-hundred word 
essay. That's like trying to summarize Moby Dick by saying "It's a book 
about this guy and a whale." 

So on to my life story: (HEY! WAKE UP.) 

All my life I looked forward to college as being the Mecca of what would 
become the realization of all my potential. I suffered through the dark 
malaise of my high school years lit only by the distant promise of college 
(that intellectual and social Land of Milk and Honey) to get me through 
those miserable years. Needless to say, when I came to UMD (then known 
as SMU) I was more than disappointed to find out that things weren't all 
I had cracked them up to be. Where were the friends-for-life? The late- 
night discussions on the meaning of art and literature in our everyday 
lives? The feelings of acceptance and belonging? The sense that we were 
important, that our lives made some sort of difference in the world? Why 
hadn't anything changed? My expectations melted into disillusionment and 
then, finally, depression. Nothing had changed. The world still didn't 
recognize my worth. No one was singing my praises. In my fetal/freshman 
state, I withdrew to my dormwomb, only to emerge for meals and the 
occasional English class. 



Then one night, I hit rock bottom. An emotional wreck, I was actually 
moved to tears by an episode of Full House! (I still can't think of it 
today without blushing.) I decided that I couldn't take four more years of 
misery and I devised a plan by which I could escape a repeat perfor- 
mance of my teenaged years. I was going to transform myself. If it killed 
me, I was going to force myself to become an extrovert. I started out 
slowly; first, by actually participating in class discussions. Though my face 
turned a lovely shade of fuschia and my tongue swelled to twice its 
normal size as I attempted to communicate to the professor, I was 
determined. Next, I tried speaking to my classmates. (It's amazing how 
far the word "hello" will get you.) I would not be stopped. 



Well, it didn't happen over night, but it did happen. Eventually, taking 
the initiative became second nature. When I look back on the person I 
was then, I'm amazed at how much I've progressed. But most of all, I'm 
amazed at how much better I like myself. I knew that I had no control 
over my external environment. There was no way that I was going to 
single-handedly change the apathetic environment of this campus. But I 
could change myself, and my attitude. In short, I could give a shit. And I 
didn't just change myself to suit my environment. Those leadership 
qualities that I brought forward were there all along, I just stopped 
expecting someone else to find them for me. 



I have had a very strange and frustrating experience on this campus. You 
might say we have a Love/Hate relationship. I have felt alternately 
embraced and rejected, nurtured and abandoned, smothered and 
encouraged (sometimes all in one day). I guess what I'm trying to say is 
that this school has the potential to be great. . . but the potential is 
within you. Nothing is going to change or improve without first improving 
yourself. Unlock those hidden talents and desires. Spread those wings. If 
this chick could find a way to fly than so can you. (Gag! I really hate to 
sound like such a cheerleader, but I guess the sentiment is worth any 
residual embarrassment. What the hell, It won't be the first time I've 
made an ass out of myself.) 



So please, whatever you do. . . just do it. (Great, now I sound like a 

Nike commercial. I'm going to stop right now before I dig myself in any 

deeper.) 

Do something, damn-it!

Conservative Arts 



Good riddance to the Bachelor of Music Major at UMass Dartmouth! 
I would like to congratulate the administration, particularly Vice-Chancellor 
Taggie and Dean Taylor for finally taking a stance and canning a 
useless program. In this day and age, who really needs quality music? 
Why should we have an extensive conservatory program in music 
when no other college in southeastern Massachusetts has one? I am also 
thrilled to see you eliminating the Music Education Teacher Certification 
Program. I too think we should ignore the initiatives of the Massachusetts 
Educational Reform Act which called for a greater concentration in the 
arts. Why should we be the only school south of Boston to certify music 
teachers? Despite the rhetoric, music hardly seems like a priority in the 
public school system, and would best be eliminated. 

My only question is why stop with music? Of course, you have other plans 
for cuts across the campus in the name of budgetary reallocation. 
While I am not an administrator, I have been on this campus for four 
years as a student and I think I can help you in your task. First 
off you are doing a great job of alienating the students currently enrolled 
in the music program here. I too would ignore the Chancellor's 
commitment to providing the students already here with a quality 
education. If you continue to cut performance classes like the Stage Band 
and schedule more required classes at the same time on the same 
day, you should be able to force out the last music stragglers within a 
few semesters. 

Second, what if you eliminated all of the other programs on campus out 
of which students are unlikely to find high income jobs: political 
science, sociology, philosophy, art education, creative writing? Like music, 
all of those majors are offered at Bridgewater, so why should we 
keep them here? 

Third, you could fire 2/3 of the faculty by having students participate in 
Distance Learning, lectures broadcast from distant campuses, like you 
are doing starting next semester with music. In fact, you could probably 
eliminate the rest of the faculty, since the students have to buy books 
anyway. Isn't it enough for them just to read the books? Then you could 
hire more administrators, who would be great at proctoring exams. 

Fourth, while cutting the music ed. program, why not cut the entire 
education department? Bridgewater has a larger department in education, 
and a graduate program. 

Fifth, since you succeeded in avoiding financial disaster by freezing all 
student carry-over accounts from last year, why not freeze current 
semester accounts of all student organizations? Like the music program, 
most student organizations don't show a profit, so maybe those funds 
could be better spent elsewhere. 

Sixth, rather than paid early retirement, why not just fire faculty, 
without pension, once we are done with them? Look how well the part 
timers are doing in the music department and in other positions 
across the campus, taken on rather than hiring new full-time professors to 
fill those vacant spots left by early retirees. Not only do you need 
to pay part-timers less, but they are also ineligible for benefits. 



Seventh, we could take the soon to be vacant performance and recital 
rooms and convert them into fish tanks in support of the stronger marine 
biology department 

Eighth, since the regularly scheduled events in the main auditorium rarely 
draw large enough crowds to show a significant profit, why not 
convert the auditorium into a fully functioning casino? Imagine the profit 
potential per square foot in there! Then you could use some of 
the converted fish tanks in Group VI as shrimp farms to provide a steady 
supply of shrimp cocktail for the gamblers. Yah, and the gamblers 
children could wander around the new aquarium since there will be no 
teachers left in the area to teach school. 

Ninth, imagine the earning potential of the campus tower, a leased 
billboard on all 4 sides of every section. 

Tenth, what if we started selling degrees? We could auction them off to 
the highest bidder. Or better yet, tie it into the casino by selling 
scratch tickets. "You may instantly win a new Ford Mustang Convertible, 
$10,000, or your very own Bachelor of Arts in Biology Degree!" 

Eleventh, with the new casino, you will need entertainment. You can 
commission Angus Bailey to produce and direct dinner theater 
shows, works much more suited to his talents than dramatic plays and 
ambitious musicals. You could also convert the Campus Center 
into an exotic dancing complex. There are already a number of students 
working as exotic dancers in nearby clubs to keep up with the 
rising cost of tuition and fees, so you could tap an existing talent 



Twelfth, by giving HECC free reign, they could raise the SAT score and 
GPA requirements so high that not even white students could get 
in, thereby eliminating the need for an admissions office. "Just send us 
your check." 

Thirteenth, you can turn the dorms into the biggest whorehouse 
this side of the Mississippi, with a different sexually deviant theme in 
every building. 

Fourteenth, you can turn the library into a nuclear waste storage facility. 

Fifteenth, you can systematically fire the remaining administrators 
(excluding yourselves of course) and split the casino profits between you 
so you can be the richest men in the world, spreading your glorious 
free market greed philosophy to the masses. 

You are on the right track. As long as you continue to ignore the 
educational and diversity missions of the campus and stay focused on the 
need for profit, you will soon manage to alienate the entire student body, 
faculty and surrounding community. See you at the University of 
Massachusetts Dartmouth Chancellor Peter Cressy Memorial Craps Table!

Anthony Quinn 
Commencement Address 



"I would like to talk about my favorite subject - an artist. 

I've been an actor for 62 years. I've done a lot of pictures - 300, as 
a matter of fact. I've painted maybe 5,000 paintings, and done a 
thousand sculptures. 

Now, after 62 years, I know the reason the artist works and lives and 
has his being. The reward he seeks. The only reward he really cares 
about without which there is nothing. It's the spirit of mankind and 
that's of magic. To see that spirit. He does not just have to be a 
painter or an actor. An artist can be a gardener trimming a rose, a 
cook making a tasty dish, a carpenter building a house, or a basketball 
player shooting a three-point basket. Michael Jordan is a thing of 
beauty. He is a work of art. 

Everyone here is an artist if you are striving to find the moment of 
life's beauty. I am no prophet. I've seen the moment of my greatness 
flicker. I've seen the eternal footman take my coat and slicker and, in 
short, I was afraid. 

At the start of the century, we went through a Great Depression. A 
depression is a hole in the ground, full of hungry people, grovelling for 
a bite to eat, a place to sleep, with no place to dream. We thought 
the earth would devour us. We were all. ..all of us were frightened. But 
a man came out of New England and said eight words that changed the 
face of the earth. He said, 'There is nothing to fear but fear itself." 
These words brought us out of the hole. We began to dream again. A 
curtain lifted. A fresh breeze flew over the world. 

What can I hold you with? I offer you lean streets, desperate sunsets. I 
offer you whatever insight my words hold. I offer you the loyalty of a 
man who has never been loyal, except to himself. I offer you the kernel 
of myself that I have saved, somehow. I offer you explanations of 
yourself, many theories about yourself, authentic and surprising news 
about yourself. 

You're just coming around the corner to a new century. It's waiting 
with open arms. All the computers, faxes, wireless phones at the ready, 
asking for you to tell them what to do. They have already beaten the 
greatest chess player of our time, but let them know that we have a 
Bobby Fisher warming up. The cold-hearted computer can never replace 
the warmth of a human voice. Education will change. I love that 
word — change. You will find new truths, new values, new politics. 
Governments will be of the people, by the people, and for the people 
not just a select few. 

There are people on this earth who have never had a chance to live. 
They will join you. Hordes that are now unheard of will come out and 
demand to be heard. I beg you to take them to your souls with hoops 
of steel. Open your eyes, your ears, to all that is coming. Be not afraid. 



By the end of the century, the world will settle down to four or five 
languages. Religions, science, philosophy, politics, education — will all be 
touched by change. 

At my age, I am still discovering. Imagine what you can do with your 
energy! Working, what you can do with all that space in front of you. 
I'm counting on the plans to answer the sickness of our rivers and seas. 

A friend of mine was once asked, 'What do you seek?' He answered, 'I do 
not seek. I find'. Let us become the finders of new truths. 

I have become known as a man who roams the world with a hungry 
heart. I am part of all that I have met. And how dull it is to pause. To 
make an end. Not to shine in use. I want to sail beyond the sunset with 
the western stars. 

Sometimes we like the strength which, in our young days, moved heaven 
and earth. Our hearts were made weak by time and faith. To strive. To 
seek. To find. And never, never to give up the spirit. 

This is the reason the artist works and lives and has his being. That from 
life's clay and his own nature, from his father's common earth, of sweat 
and violence and bitter anguish, he may distill a beauty of an everlasting 
form. To enslave and conquer man by his own enchantment, to cast his 
spell across the generations, to beat death down upon its knees and to 
kill death utterly. To fix eternally, with grappling hooks of his own art. 

This is the artist. Life's hungry man, a glutton of eternity, the beauty of 
glory and miser slave. The artist is cold and cruel as hell — to get the 
thing he wants, to achieve the thing he values, and must do. Or die. 

He is at once life's monstrous outcast. Life's beauty drunken lover. Man's 
bloody, ruthless pitiless and utterly relentless enemy and the best friend 
that mankind ever had. A creature, compact with all whose life with all 
its toil, and sweat and bitter anguish, is the highest, the grandest, the 
nobelist and the most unselfish, most superbly happy, good and fortunate 
life that man can know or any man attain. 

He is the language of man's buried heart. He is man's music and a life's 
great discoverer. The eye that sees, the key that can unlock, a tongue 
that will express the buried treasure in the hearts of men. That all men 
know. And what not one man in a million ever is. 

At the end, he is his father's son. He is at once, therefore, the parent 
and the son of life. He is most like man in his very differences. He is 
what all men are. And what not one man in a million ever is. He has all. 
Knows all. Sees all that any man on earth can see and hear and know. 
And never, never gives up the spirit. 

Thank you.

My Creed 



There sits on the bookshelf, behind my office desk at the 
University, a framed statement, anonymously written, entitled 
My Creed. It was given to me by a dear friend, Barbara 
Bell-Nay — SMU Class of 78, because she felt it not only expressed 
something of her own personal life view but mine as well. 
She was right. It does. I pass it along to you for whatever saner, 
more sensible understanding of life's mystery that its simple 
insights and recognitions may evoke in you as it does in me. 

Donald C. Howard 
Dean of Students 



In some way, however small or secret, each of us is a little 

mad. ..Everyone is lonely at bottom and cries to be understood; but 

we can never entirely understand someone else, and each of 

us remains part stranger even to those who love us... It is the weak 

who are cruel, gentleness can only be expected from the 

strong.. .Those who do not know fear are not really brave, for courage 

is the capacity to confront what can be imagined. ..You can 

understand people better if you look at them, no matter how old or 

impressive they may be, as if they are children. For most of 

us never mature; we simply grow taller.. .Happiness only comes when 

we push our brains and hearts to the farthest reaches which 

we are capable.. .The purpose of life is to matter, to count, to stand 

for something, to have it make some difference that we lived at all..

Letter from Layout Editor 
Rebecca Schwartz 

Two years when I transferee! here I wasn't to sure where I fit in from sports, to clubs or 
organizations? It soon all came very clear to me what was important. A college yearbook is one of 
the most important memories one will ever have left after those four or more long, hard, and precious 
years with this university. The Umass Dartmouth yearbook plays an extraordinary part in one's life and 
that's COLLEGE. Alot of us ask ourselves what are we really doing here. 

Well it's simple and I can tell you why, you see college is all about life... It's about being 
independent, but not sure if we're really quite ready to grown up, staying up late with friends even 
if your doing nothing, but homework, or trying to get ready for your senior show, about wanting to 
sleep, but never seem to get enough and the list for college to go on forever... All I'm saying is that 
College is suppose to be some of the best years in your life and you don't want to blow it. If your a 
senior you still have one year to redeem yourself, but if your anything under that then you've got a 
world of opportunities just awaiting for you. Don't blow though because you don't know when you'll 
get a second chance. 

The yearbook is a great experience for anyone interested in the design field, photography, 
business, marketing, writers or even publication. My second year at Umass Dartmouth I thought alot 
about the yearbook, but I was always extremely busy with all my classes and jobs. But my senior 
year an I fortunately got the opportunity to became the new Editor-in Chief. Only having three 
classes, but also having four jobs, life could get hectic at times. Being an art student this is an 
incredible opportunity for a student to demonstrate their artist ability, to supervise a staff, budget 
an account, to design the theme of the book, meet with clients monthly and more. I guess I can't 
stress enough how important your college education is to all of you out there. Remember this quote 
from a good friend of mine " Education is something you earn and that can never be taken away 
from you." To really succeed in this world just put on your boxing gloves and go for the world's 
shot because think the worst that could happen is you'll fall down and with that just pick yourself 
up and do it again.... it's just waiting for you. I feel like we all sound the same, but I guess when 
you realize what really makes you happy, you have to share it will as many people as you can. 

I want to first thank my parents because if it wasn't for them I wouldn't be writing this 
editorial today. It's been tough, but I hope you all realize that UMD was the best thing for me. 
I discovered things that I never thought I would. It's been real great minus the few that got in 
my way, but I have to say that my friends now have definitely showed me the way. To my sister 
Elisabeth I'm glad we're close and always will be Love You. Thanks Nicole, Annie, Jill, Melissa, 
Becky, Ernie, Allie and Lisa. Ross well I don't know how to ever thank you enough for all your 
support expect to marry you ... I do. Thank you all for always believing in me when 
I didn't believe in myself. To all of you I have a part of you inside me that will make 
me who I am forever. UMD has one more year with me and it's going to be the best 
one ever, just wait and see !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Good luck to the Class of 1997.

Letter from the Editor-in-Chief 
Joyce Davis 



A letter from the editor, this is suppose to be some words of knowledge 
gained by the editor through this job to hand off to the graduating 
class. I can't really say that I have any earth shattering knowledge from 
this job, but I can tell you that hard work can go a long way. The 
only person who will make opportunities happen for you is YOU! YOU have 
the abiltiy to be whatever you chose to be. You have the knowledge, 
which was acquired at this University, to make your life and the life of 
people around you better. 

It is time that Generation X explodes into the business world with full force. 
It is also time to let the other generations know that we are just as 
hard working, motivated and most of all intelligent as they are. The only 
difference is the environment that we were brought up in; we are 
more laid back and willing to experiment different things until we get it 
right. The society around us today is in a constant state of change 
with all of the technological advances that happen every day. Who would 
have ever imagined fifty years ago that a computer with a modem 
would be the only thing you would need to stay in contact with the world 
around you or that man would be probing Mars with a camera/robot, 
that is truly amazing. 

It has been left up to our generation to continue these technological 
advances, but why should we stop there. We need to become an 
active generation and try to cure the wrongs that are happening on our 
homefront. Why does the richest nation in the world have homeless 
people, hungry people and people who can not afford health care. I am 
not saying that we can cure these things overnight, but if we got 
involved a little bit more and took the time to care about someone other 
than ourselves, we could make a difference. 

It is my opinion that the government and big business care more about 
how things are going overseas in foreign countries than they do 
about America, their own country. It is also time that America starts taking 
care of Americans. If the government could curb the national defecit, 
we could make programs that would help the American people in need. 
We could even get a national health care system, free to all 
Americans or recieve a higher education for free, so we become one of 
the most intelligent countries again. All of these things seem 
outragous and too hard to do but it does not take a village to make 
change, it takes dedication and hard work. 



Dedication and hard work has been the theme to my last year at 
UMass Dartmouth. I became so involved in organizations on campus that 
I worked like a mad women during school. I also had to worry 
about getting my second bachelors degree and getting through my classes. 
It was a rough year but one I will never forget. I did all this to better 
myself, to make myself more marketable to the business world. / made it 
happen for myself, no one else helped me. I even paid for college solo, 
not that my parents wouldn't; but they couldn't afford to. I am living 
proof that you can change your world, you only need the motivation and 
direction to do it. I am not telling you this to have this big sob story 
of how my college career went, rather I wanted to prove that one person 
can make a difference, after all if it wasn't for me you wouldn't have 
a yearbook. 

Class of 1997, congratulations on recieving your degrees. Wake up! We 
are the future, it is time that we take the torch that the thirty 
somethings are passing to us and run. Run all areas of life to their 
highest potential and above all be happy. Happiness is key to 
a sucessful life. I wish everyone in the Class of 1997 best of luck and 
happiness in all of their future endeavors. 

On a personal note, I would like to thank those people who stood 
by my side during all the good and bad times. Kathy, Zakk, Yvette 
and of course my family- I LOVE YOU GUYS!! If it weren't for your 
love and support I would have been in a loony bin a long time ago. 
Thanks for the encouragement and always being there to listen to 
me whine. 

Good luck to the Yearbook Staff of 1997-1998!! It is a lot of work, keep 
a smile on when times get tough.
