Graduate Portraits 







Jean F. MacCormack 




Dear Class of 2002, 

Congratulations to each and every one of you for 
achieving this most important milestone — your 
graduation. Graduation is a very special occasion, and 
you get to celebrate your accomplishments to date and 
your aspirations for your future. I am confident that 
the preparation that you have received at UMass 
Dartmouth has given you the skills and knowledge to 
meet the great opportunities and challenges you will face 
in your future. We are proud to have been such an 
important partner in your educational success and look 
forward to hearing about your significant contributions 
to our modern world. 

That your contributions are needed in the twenty-first 
century goes without saying. Our world is one where 
rapid growth and chance shape the fabric of daily life. 
We are called upon to use our resourcefulness and our 

talents to adapt to its changing requirements. Global communications, advanced technology, interlinked 
economies and international politics make demands on all of us to be competent, and incredibly diverse. 
You must be prepared to shape it and to transform it for the better. 

I am confident that your education at UMass Dartmouth has prepared you not only to acquire intellectual 
skills but also to live a truly meaningful life characterized by honesty, integrity and compassion for 
others. I urge you to value and honor diversity and civility and to make a commitment to using your 
intellectual talents for the common good as well as for making a good living. Certainly, the events of 
September 11,2001 have made us all acutely aware of the threats that exist in the fabric of our democratic 
society. Conflict, warfare, prejudice and poverty can threaten the quality of our contemporary life. We 
have witnessed a tremendous rebirth of patriotism, and it will be up to you to ensure that patriotism's 
true meaning is lived out in the next generation. You have had the opportunity to witness heroism at 
ever)' level. One never knows when that extraordinary challenge will face you. You need to be ready to 
meet it. You can be a hero in the way you live your ordinary life. 

Many people have contributed to your success. Your family, friends, faculty and staff have supported 
you in many ways as you have moved toward graduation. Share your success with them and always be 
willing to express your appreciation to others. 

It has been a great privilege for us to share this educational journey with you. We hope that you have 
learned how to learn and how to apply your skills and knowledge in ways that will help you thrive in our 
changing world while at the same time helping to improve its quality. Your University welcomes you 
now as proud alumni and hopes you will always stay involved and committed to your alma mater. 

Most sincerely, 

Jean F. MacCormack 


"Engage, Embedded and Evolve" 

In September, 2001 the University of AAassachesetts President 
'William M. Bulger presented to Jean MacCormock a madallion; 
on act that officially dubed her Chancellor of the University of 
Massachusetts Dartmouth. Engraved on this medallion are the 
words "Engaged, embedded, evolve". In her speech she talked 
of a vision she has for our school where the true meaning of these 
words, words that are her duties, would be carried out. 

While Chancellor MocCormack has been on our campus since 
September of 1999, holding the position of interim chancellor, this 
ceremony held in the main auditorium marked her official welcome 
as leader of our campus, complete with the pomp, circumstance 
and tradition that accompanies official University ceremonies like 

Not only is the event of Chancellor MacCormack's installation 
notworthy, as this installation marks only the third in campus history, 
but it is groundbreaking. Chancellor Jean MacCormock is the 
first woman chancellor, and she is proud to have that honor. "I 
bring a different perspective, a woman's perspective," she said at 
her ceremony. "It's not better, but it's different." 

Students, faculty, staff and colleagues all filled the auditoriunh 
for the event, but it was the presence of Chancellor MacCormack's 
family that mode her most happy. 

Students of this university ore excited about new leadership, 
and look forward to seeing the vision she will work to carry out: 
even long after they have left this campus. UMass Darmouth will 
always be our alma mader and students count on strong leadership 
to always keep it the distinguished and honorable institution it 
was when we were here. On behalf of UMD's students, welcome 

William M. Buker^ 



Dear Class of 2002, 

The tragic events of September 1 1 force us to confront many challenges, but also remind us 
all that knowledge is out best antidote for fear and uncertainty. As you go forward at this 
important time in world history, make the effort every day to learn more. 

The educators at this- University have played important roles in your development. Yet, in 
many ways you have educated yourselves. Education is not something that can be passively 
acquired. Education is an active process, a personal and individual process, and it is directed 
first and foremost, to a personal and individual product, the development of a peculiarly human 
trait, the intellect. 

Congratulations on completing this phase of your life-long education. Your presence has 
made the University better. Please stay in touch. 

William M. Bulger 


In Memorium 

Last summer, UMass Dartmouth's psychology department lost one of its finest faculty members. Dr. Scott Dickmon was a 
brilliant professor and o friend to his students, fie possessed a vast knowlege of all the subjects he taught and he passed that 
knolwege effectively and memorably to his students. \ 

We, the students of Dr Dickmon, remember his lectures to be be comprehensive and informative. Many young freshman, 
myself included, were swayed into the psychology major under the influence of Dr Dickmon's Psych 101 class. We then 
decided that we all suffered from rare psychotic disorders after taking his Abnormal Psych class. We later learned the 
methods behind Freud's madness in Dr. Dickmon's course in Personality Theory. And some of us went on to perform bizarre 
experiments on the freshman psychology students in the Honors Project course directed by Dr. Dickmon. 

Certainly we all felt regret when we learned that Dr Dickmon hod passed away, but those of us who took his classes can 
of least be thankful for the wealth of knowlege that he shared with us. Our memories of him ore fond and we will carry 
what we learned from Dr Dickmon beyond college and into our careers. Thank you. Dr. Dickmon. '

ji Susan T. Costa 
[Acting Vice Chancellor, Student Affairs] 

To the Class of 2002, we have enjoyed serving you during your career at UMass Dartmouth. It can be 
said with certainty that you have graduated from this institution a different person than who you were 
when you entered. We are appreciative of you as a member of our community and the impact of your 
presence; for not only are you changed, but we are changed as a result of what we have learned from you. 

We trust that you have learned from us as we have advised, counseled, cajoled and challenged you, but 
learning goes both ways. We have also been challenged by you. Your expectations of us have helped us 
strive to be better professionals. With the passing of every class, we are wiser, more knowledgeable, and 
better prepared for the next class. We take that responsibility seriously and we thank you for all you have 
given us. 

The administration of UMass Dartmouth does its best to deliver quality service to its students but also 
to foster an environment which allows and encourages students to take risks through active learning and 
opportunities for growth. 

While the focus of your formal education was the classroom, we are confident that your experience and 
learning was enhanced by the variety of educationally purposeful activities that were provided. 

As members of our community, we required you to take responsibility and to be accountable for your 
actions. We asked you to practice civility and to appreciate others. We urged you to tiy your hand at 
leadership and we encouraged you to stand up for what you believe. Take those lessons and skills with 
you and continue to practice them in your personal and professional lives. 

We hope you know that we care about students and that students matter. We were always concerned 
about your well being and committed to your success. Your graduation is testimony to that success. As 
you graduate, we congratulate you and ask that you stay connected and continue to feel a part of the 
UMass Dartmouth family.

Retirine Professors at UMD 

"A critical part of your experience at UMass Dartmouth was your time with the faculty. As teachers, 
mentors, and guides, they truly define this university. Everywhere I go, I hear from students and 
alumni, expressions of their tremendous regard for this faculty — who are always willing to go to the 
greatest lengths to ensure student success. They care passionately about students, and advancing and 
transmitting knowledge in their discipHnes. They believe their work makes a difference in producing 
a new generation of continuous learners. They are role models for you about what it means to truly 
care about producing quality research and scholarship, about creating the conditions that enhance 
student learning and teaching others, and about loving what you do. 

Further recognition is due today to a special group of faculty who have devoted much of their 
professional lives to this University. Among them, they have given an incredible 1,136 years of service 
to this institution. As you graduate today, 43 of your professors are retiring or will retire during this 
next year. We offer them a special word of thanks. We arevery much in your debt for your years of 
remarkable service and academic achievement. Please know you will always have a home here. We 
consider you a permanent part of the UMD family."

Ofne of the best parts of returning to 
UMD in the fall is Welcome Back 
Week; a week packed with activities, trips, 
programs and free food. 

The Campus Activities Board sponsored 
"Who Wants To Be a Millionaire?", a viewing 
of "The Matrix" in the campus center, x-rated 
hypnotist Jim Spinnato and a Foam Dance 
party. "Slipping, sliding and dancing around 
in the foam with friends was such a great way 
to begin the vear!" commented Courtney 
Gillett and Melissa Collier. Also, they 
provided transportation to the Gravity 
Games and Hampton Beach. 

There were scheduled sporting events for 
almost every night. The men's soccer team 
played Mt. Ida, women's tennis were up 
against Eastern Nazarene, women's soccer 
played Roger Williams and the football team 
battled Springfield on Saturday afternoon. 

One of the most popular events was the 
first fall 2001 Sunset Senior Class party, where 
the Seniors were able to get together and have 
an awesome time conversing with those they 
had not seen all summer, and prepare for their 
final year here at UMD.

'Unity. Resolve. Freedom. These are the hallmarks of the American spirit." 
~~ '^: - President Georee W. Bush 

- President George W. Bush 

n September 11, many of us got our cups of coffee, fought over parking spaces and crowded into our early 
morning classes without even noticing how beautiful a day it was. We listened half-heartedly to our professors 
and jotted down scattered notes, completely oblivious to what was going on in the world around us. When we wandered 
through the halls after our 9:30 classes, there was something eerie about the air. People were talking as usual, but 
something was different. The sound of televisions could be heard from most every classroom - a strange thing for a 
Tuesday morning. On the screen, it didn't seem real - the images of two passenger planes flying directly into the World 
Trade Towers, dust and debris, people running for their lives. Could it be real? Who could have done such a thing? What 
about those people? Questions flooded our minds. No sooner than \vq could think, a professor scurried door to door 
frantically, classes had been cancelled ... we were at war. 

I started to cry, sitting in the cold black chair of my literature class, watching the repeated image of those planes. I was 
in shock, I couldn't believe that something like this could have happened in our country. The once steady foundation of 
security I stood upon was now shaken, the fearlessness of youth began to slip through my fingers. It took an hour and 
a half to get around Ring Road, but I finally began the ride home. Looking around, everything seemed different. I 
noticed what a beautiful day it was and smiled through my tears. 

Our hearts go out to all of those directly affected by the attacks at the World Trade Towers and the Pentagon, yet all 
of us have been affected. Most students at UMD are of a generation of complete security, and have seen nothing like 
September 1 1 before. No matter what happens as a result of these tragedies, this day will be with us always as a defining 
moment in our lives. So, this year, more than any other, the focus is on unity and togetherness. As President Bush 
declared, "Americans have resolve", and we will push on, but we will do it as one nation indivisible, under God.

This plaque adorned the original Star Store, Opened In 
1898 as a dry goods store, it grew into a successful 
department store and was a symbol of elegance for the 
city. For decades it stood as the anchor of the downtown 
New Bedford business district. 

On September 5, a crowd gathered around the Star Store building in downtown New Bedford to witness the opening of 
the new visual arts campus. The building itself is a historic landmark, which has been closed since now houses 
studios for painting, ceramics and sculpture, as well as two art galleries and a mini-campus belonging to Bristol Communit}' 
College. Students will enjoy private studio-style cubicles, state-of-the-art technology, more space than ever offered before and 
\Aill be in the middle of New Bedford's cultural district. 

At the Grand Opening of the Star Store, Chancellor Jean MacCormack said of the project, "Establishing the University's 
premiere art program in the heart of New Bedford's cultural district is absolutclv ideal for UMass Dartmouth, as well as for the 
cit\'...our faculty and students in this stunning facility will be woven into the city's tapestr\', brilliant threads interwoven with 
those of other cultural institutions, the public schools and the civic life of the community." 

The Star Store project undeniably marks one small step for the city of New Bedford, one giant step for the UMD community, 
but it is only one of the man)' in store for the university. Others include an Advanced Technology & Manufacturing Center in 
Fall River, a pair of 400-bed dormitories and a new Charlton College of Business facility on the UMD campus. With the 
expectation that student enrollment will more than double m tlie next 10 years, expansion is both necessary and eagerl}' awaited.

Autumn Air 

II atrick Fernsten and Angela Frietas were crowned king and queen at this year's Homecoming 
celebration. There could not be a more suitable couple to represent what UMD is all 
about. Angela, class of 2002's president all four years, member of Student Senate and an RA 
for three years, captures the spirit of leadership and beauty. "To be quite honest, I was surprised. 
I really just did it for the organization I was raising money for... The Make A Wish Foundation." 
This year, royalty was chosen based upon the charities they hoped to support by winning as well as 
other merits such as campus involvement. 

Patrick, known by most as "Puck", is also a symbol here at the University. A fun-loving, energetic, 
leader, Puck chose to sponser the Susan G. Coleman Breast Cancer Foundation. Said Frietas, "Fve 
known Puck since our Freshman Orientation - he's very active here at UMass... President of his 
fraternity... Always known as a fun person, always there to help". 

The parade kicked off the festivities, making its way around Ring Road, candy thrown out to 
by-standers. At 1 o'clock, the football game between UMD and Bridgewater State College began. 
The Corsairs beat Bridgewater 43 to 13, as crowds of alumni and students cheered them on. 
Homecoming is an important weekend for alumni - the tent set up for them outside of the football 
stadium saw many former Corsairs catching up and enjoying the beautiful autumn day.

Howard Glasser 


Before trendy coffeehouses were popular for their 
appreciation of live music, professor fHoward Glasser 
brought Celtic and folk music to UMD in a similar format. 
Starting bock in the 1970s, Glasser organized monthly 
meetings called ceilidhs that brought together a diverse 
group that enjoyed the sounds of a music deeply rooted 
in tradition; a magical mix of old and new from musicians 
who had a way with a fiddle or unique telling of a tale 
through song. These close-knit get-togethers led to an 
annual festival that brought musicians from all over the 
world to perform. Called Eisteddfod, a Welsh word 
for "the coming together and sitting down of bards 
and minstrels," the event displayed music of ages post. 
The annual Eisteddfod brought out everyone from 
students to janitors and administrators to be together 
and enjoy the sounds. Closeted musicians were known 
to shine, and the "open mic" atmosphere was perfect 
for those not musically inclined but who simply enjoyed 

fHomecoming weekend this year sow a reunion of 
Eisteddfod musicians, as well as a special retrospective 
exhibit of Professor Glosser's work.

I he Campus Activin' Board (CAB) brought 

_JL- something new to UMD this vear. While 
thev held many fun one-time events, the year long 
Comedo" Series provided students with something to 
look forward to on a regular basis. 

Student organizer of the events, junior Mark Sees, 
said, "CAB's mission is to put on events that students 
will enjov and to give campus life a little boost. 
Sometimes you look around and there's not much to 
do, we just tr\' to provide something to do that is 
inexpensive that the}' can have a good time at. The 
comed}' series is free to the students." Rather than 
having just one event, CAB made the smart decision 
to make it a series to encourage a good turnout and 
build a following. Said Sees, "We run the series every 
two weeks, to put some regularity into it, [so that] 
students think 'Thursday night' and know they can 
head over to the Campus Center for the show." 

"This vear we stuck with local comedians. The 
biggest guys are Craig Carmean and Dave Russo. 
Craig was voted 'Comedian of the Year' in the college 
market, and Dave is animated, hysterical and has a veiy 
distinct view of the world. They are two of the more 
popular acts that we booked," commented Sees. 

They trv to look at the student body and provide 
diversitv in their acts. "Two weeks ago, on national 
coming out day, we had gay, lesbian and transvestite 
comedians and the event was co-sponsored by the 
Pride Alliance. We try to keep up with student 
interests," said Seese. 

Originally slated for just the fall semester, the series 
was quite successful, with an additional series added 
for the spring.

All Hallow's Eve 

Always a popular Halloween tradition 
is Twenty Cent Fiction's perfor- 
mance of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. 
The show, put on by UMD's alternative drama 
club is a cult classic, which drew many people 
to the auditorium in Group 6. Some were there 
to watch the show and enjoy the actors sing 
along with the movie, projected in the back- 
ground, while other members of the audience 
got on stage to take part. 

Students weren't just enthusiastic about 
Rocky Horror the night of October 31, but 
many students wore Halloween costumes 
around campus and into classes during the day. 

Once postponed by the tragic events of September 1 1 , producer 
and director Brent Scarpo was finally able to present his film 
"Journey to a Hate Free Millennium" to the UMD community on 
October 29. Through this award-winning documentary Mr. Scarpo 
spreads his message of peace to students all over the country, seeking 
solutions to the horrible hate crimes that have become frequent events 
in our daily lives. 

This moving film featured stories of intolerance and hate through 
the stories of Matthew Shepard, a gay college student who was 
violently murdered, James Byrd, Jr., an African American man who 
was dragged to death, and the tragedy of the Columbine High School 
shootings. Scarpo's aim was to bring about discussion and action 
from learning about these hate crimes. In his talk before and after 
the film, Scarpo pleaded not simply for tolerance, but inclusion; that 
we work to find answers and make hate crime something unseen in 
this new millennium. 

As students exited the event, Scarpo provided thimbles to each 
attendee. During his talk he used a thimble as metaphor, one he 
learned learned at a young age, as his mother's gift to him upon 
graduation was a simple silver thimble. She sent him off for a new 
life 3,000 miles away from home, having the comfort that if he filled 
his thimble with "love, care and self-respect" he would always be safe. 
Scarpo used the metaphor to explain the actions of others; those who 
commit heinous hate crimes have thimbles too, but theirs are empty. 

Journey to a Hate Free Millenium 


Mystical a, r t S of Tibet 

Keeping traditions alive through the ritual performance of 
sacred music and dance, the monks of the Drepung Loseling 
Monastery travel the globe providing engaging entertainment, 
as well as educating students to the plight of the Tibetan people. 

On November 8, the Tibetan monks presented a show of 1 1 
acts, each displaying a different colorful and dramatic display 
of their heritage and culture. 

The performers are from a monastery established in Tibet in 
the early 1400s. The invasion of the Chinese Communists in 
the 1950s left the monastery in ruins and forced the monks to 
India, as has been the sad story of thousands of people in 
Chinese-occupied Tibet. To be able to develop and share their 
traditions serves as a victory to the Tibetan people, and is a 
fascinating experience for us here at UMD. 



^% tudent Senate carried on tradition by hosting 
W^_>^ the annual Senior Citizen's HoHday Party on 
December 1; this December marking the 31st year 
this event has been held. 

The Senate headed up the event, with help from 
Sigma Tau Gamma, Stop & Shop as well as the 
Gerontology department. 

With help from student sentators. Chancellor 
MacCormack and other volunteers, many turkey 
dinners were provided to the gathered crowd. Along 
with a good meal, the guests enjoyed festive music

The afternoon began with a few words from the 
chancellor, as well as special guests: State Senator Joan 
Menard, the Mayor of Fall River Ed Lambert, and Teva 
Smith, the president of the UMD Student Senate. 

With the Holidays just around the corner, it was a 
perfect wav to gear up for the season, as well as a 
chance for students to say "hello" to a part of the 
community that many at UMD seldom get a chance 
to spend time with.

The Spirit of Africa 

I ^ ecember 13 saw j. culmination of a semesters work of African 

drumming and dance study. In the main auditoruim, members of 
Professor royal hartigan's African Drumming Class along with visiting 
professionals in the durmming and dance arts presented a mezmerizing show 
capturing the pure essence of Africa. Senior Mandy Fraser, a member of the 
drumming class, commented, "To be a part of it was a moving experience; I 
have never achieved that level of energy doing anything else. It's hard to put 
into words. Just beautiful."

Under Construction 


I he incoming Freshman Class of 2002 will be largest ever for our campus. In anticipation 
^ of this, the University and the Building Authority are working togethe*" to build more 
Residence Hall space. Construction of Building #1 and Building #2 (they will be named at a 
later date) began in September with the targeted completion date schedule for this August. 

The new buildings will have air conditioning, a first for any of our Residence Halls. Also 
new will be the creation of Learning Communities for the Honors and Impulse programs. In 
addition, the Women's Resource Center and the International Student Affairs Program will be 
moving in as well. 

This new construction heralds the next phase of growth and construction for the campus. 
There are plans for a new building for the School of Business which will begin construction 
within the new future. 

With all of this construction on campus, life here was altered in many ways. We had to share 
the roads with construction equipment, work crews started work early in the morning, which 
replaced the need for an alarm clock and parking on campus was thrown in chaos. However, as 
we watched the steady progress, we knew that things were getting better. Only if they had 
been built 4 years earlier...

Make Tbem I 

On Thursday, April 25th, busses carrying 500 UMass Dartmouth students left the campus to participate in the 
Save UMass rally outside the Statehouse in Boston. In all, roughly 1,000 students and faculty members 
represented UMass Dartmouth, making them the biggest group from any single university. Many students 
remained at the Statehouse after the rally to lobby their senators and representatives into supporting public higher 

Tom Juravich, director of the Labor Center at UMass Amherst and professional singer acted as emcee for the event. 
He greeted the crowd by shouting, "We're here to celebrate UMass and public higher education in Massachusetts." He 
called the legislature's cutes an "injustice." Juravich stated, "We're here to put them on notice that v^e're listening." 
Before introducing the first speaker he got the crowd excited by stating, "I don't know about you, but I'm feeling 
pretty angry right now." 

Juravich then introduced Bob Haynes, president of the AFL-CIO. Haynes began by asking, "How many of you are 
registered to vote?" After an uproar from the audience Haynes continued while pointing at the Statehouse, "Talk to 
the people in there." He called the budget "foolhardy" and said he legislature is "cutting the heart and soul out of our 
state." He wrapped up by telling students to "educate the politicians." 

UMass Dartmouth Student Trustee Rafael Leonor addressed the crowd after Haynes. He began by discussing the 
history oj rallies, and how they have been a positive force for public higher education. He said, "The state legislature 
and governor cut public higher education by $70 million this year, the largest cut of any state." Leonor then used his 
own story to illustrate how difficult coping with these cutes will be for students. In closing he created a new chant for 
the crowd: "Have the guts to stop the cuts!" 

UMD students Rachel Lapointe and Chrissy McNally stepped up to the podium at the same time. LaPointe stated

I^V enouned literary critic, Sterling Professor of Humanities at Yale University, Berg Professor of English at New York 
M. ^JJniversity and author of more than 20 books, Harold Bloom was conferred with the honor Doctor of Humane 
Letters, Honris Causa on April 12''\ 2002. 

The ceremony also featured Nobel Laureate recipient Dr. Jose Saramago; on hand to congratulate Bloom and to share his 
admiration for this renouned figure with everyone m attendance. "We are doubly blessed to have Jose Saramago with us to 
dedicate Bloom," said Jean MacCormack, UMD's chancellor. Saragamo remarked that bloom has, "proposed for us not a 
map, fixed for all times, but a sensitive compass. As he understands it, a book is a magnetic field in which vibrates perpetually 
the searching needle of the one who has written it and in which will vibrate, each time, the searching needle of the one who 
reads it." 
Bloom's passion for the written word is evident in his works, and he is a very noble advocate for public libraries. "We need 
to keep the libraries alive in bad times," said Bloom. He talked at length about the roll that public libraries played in his life 
when he was young. Because he read everything on the shelves he was able to mature from a curious child into a highly 
respected critic and educator. 

After the ceremony he gave a lecture on his book Atlantic Sublime. Many were there to hear Bloom speak about his book 
about three important writers, including a personal favorite of his, Walt Whitman. 

Bloom's presence showed once again the opportunities that students are given in a university environment to have contact 
with some of the world's greatest minds. 

Critical Praise 


Wisdom meets Youth 

T T 

I I Mass DartniDutli was tlic liost of the 1 7"'' Annual Conference 

%^ J of Tlie Islamic Council of New England on April TI''^\ It 
N\"as a time to pra\', meet witfi others of the Muslim faith, and was a 
terrific opportunity- for those not of the faith to learn about more 
about it. It featured Dr. Omar Khalil, who is the adviser of the 
UMass Dartmouth Islamic Society, and he opened the series of 
lectures. With the conference's title of, "Guiding Light: Defining 
the Future of Our Children as Muslim Youth in Western Societies," 
Dr. Khalil's words asked, "what shall we do to help our daughters 
and sons?" Chancellor MacCormack spoke of the prospects that 
this day might bring to Islamic children, offering, "The wisdom of 
those with experience had the opportunity to meet with the 
imagination of youth." 

The day of lectures featured many prominent figures of Islamic 
study and theology, including Dr. Liyakat Takim, who is a Professor 
of Islamic Studies at the University of Toronto, and Dr. Tariq 
Ramadan, who is a Professor of Religion and Philosophy at the 
University of Freiburg and the College of Geneva. Each speaker 
covered a different topics. Topics included, "Islam, Muslim Youth 
and World Peace", "Social Problems and Pressures Facing Muslim 
Youth", and "Outstanding Achievements of Muslim Youth in 

The day was a success, and it was an honor to have such an event at 
our university. 


Under the Sta 



I magine being in the city of Boston on a clear, starry night 
_JL at Faneuil Hall. As you walk and talk with a loved one, you 
notice the world around you slowly pass by. A violinist plays near a 
packed cafe, as the young and the old dance on the cobblestone 
walkway. Just another peaceful, joyous, vivacious night "Under the 
Stats" in Boston. 

On April 5th, glitz, glamour, and romance filled the evening at the 
Boston Park Plaza Hotel. Five hundred fifteen people strolled into 
the hotel in evening wear as they drifted up the stairs to hear the 
tunes from the jazz band Times Five coming from the Stanbro Room 
as the social/cocktail hour of the evening began. Others headed to 
the Hancock Room, where photographers were taking pictures as 
part of the favor package. The other part of the favor package included 
picture frames that matched the matte and the photograph everyone 
received. Add a little wine and dine, and the perfect evening was set 

The evening may have ended a little carl\", but lasted double the 
amount the previous year. The Campus Activities Board is, after all, 
a group of volunteer students that puts on cx'cnts for the student 
body, and is currently a work in progress in perfecting the 
programming board.

Spring Concert

I his year the Campus Activities Board (CAB) organized another successful, sold-out spring 
A ■ concert. Mutli-platinum, Def Jam recording artist Ludacris rocked the UMass Dartmouth Tripp 
Athletic Center on Saturday, May 4, 2002. 

The night started off with music by UMass's, DJ KB, one of the winners of the "Battle of the Bands/ 
DJ's" contest held the previous week. Busted Fro followed DJ KB and kept the audience moving with 
an explosive rap and break dance act. After they "rolled out," Ludarcis "rolled in" and controlled the 
2000 plus crowd while performing songs such as "Roll Out," "Coming to America," "Welcome to 
Atlanta," and "Southern Hospitality." 

The hard work of the all-volunteer staff helped everyone get their money's worth and have a great 
time. Ludacris will be added to the legacy of performers brought to UMass Dartmouth including The 
Mighty-Mighty Bostones, Busta Rymes, Outkast & The Roots, and Three-Doors Down. Sponsored in 
part by the Scrimshaw Yearbook, CAB's "Spring Concert 2002" will be remembered as one of the most 
successfully-coordinated concerts in UMass Dartmouth history. There may not have been a better way 
to end the year. If you missed this show, you missed out!

% onvocations are the most ceremonious of occasions at a 

^*« — -^ university, and on May 8 the annual Honors Convocation 
was complete with all of the spectacle of such formal University 
gatherings which celebrate the University and its students. 

Like Commencement, which celebrates the fulfillment of degrees, 
and the Convocation in September that opens the academic year, the 
Honors Convocation continues the tradition of officially honoring 
the achievements of UMD students. The procession into the main 
auditorium saw administration and faculty in full regalia for the 
occasion. After Chancellor MacCormack greeted the audience of 
students, their families, and many members of our UMD community, 
Meghan Wayman read her Honors Award winning essay, "Odysseys 
Body, Mind and Spirit." 

George Monteiro, a Brown University Professor, delivered the 
keynote address, entitled "The Education of Anthony Junior," 

High honors were given to many students who have maintained 
high GPAs, including Sheila Doherty, who majored in Sociology. 
Anthropology but took on a political science major as well. She 
maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA. With a GPA of 3.91, senior Kristen 
Greene was awarded for athletic scholarship. 

As the gathering came to a close, over 200 students were officially 
recognized for their academic achievement, and a standing ovation 
celebrated their academic success perfectly.

There are thousands of students, faculty and staff on this 
campus. Everyone comes from a different background, has 
different interests and we know that they all have a story to 
tell. We have taken this opportunity to highlight some of the 
people that make UMD such an interesting place. Some faces 
here are familiar, others are new, but we hope that on the 
following pages you will learn a little more about some of the 
people that have made a difference at UMD, in their jobs, 
classes and our University community. 


John J. DePina III 

[Student Leader, Entrepreneur] 

I entered this university a short, thin, lost, young man, and I came out still a short, thin, but experienced, educated and successful leader. When I enrolled in 
UMass Dartmouth I didn't know how drastically my life would change. Probably none of my teachers or peers whom I left behind in my hometown of Whitman, 
MA would have anticipated that I would or could have accomplished what I have today. From 1997 to 2002, I completed a degree in both Business 
Information Systems ond Marketing, was elected President for 2 terms of one of the most recognized and significant student organizations on campus, and 
opened a fuiltime-operotional insurance agency. 

Although hardly involved in extracurricular activities in high school, I found new interest in a different atmosphere with different people. I joined various 
student associations with the encouragement of administrators and friends, particularly Leroy Redley who brought me to my first United Brother & Sisters (UBS) 
meeting. I eventually began working with numerous other organizations and institutions including the Frederick Douglas Unity hiouse (FDUH), Cape Verdean 
Student Association (CVSA), the United Latino Society (ULS), and Recruitment & Retention Task Force. Although I was involved with a variety of groups on 
campus, my fascination with the production of large concerts and dances motivated me to commit to the Campus Activities Board (CAB), in which I was 
involved for four years. Moreover, I wanted to make a difference since my peers and I found few events that CAB organized either appealing or diverse. 
I held four different positions on CAB and in one way or another, helped coordinate approximately 250 events. As a freshman, I held my first 
programming position, and began working on concerts, dances, and comedy shows. I became the president of CAB in the fall of 2000, when drastic changes 
to the organization were needed. The organization did not hove on advisor until the end of fall, and I had to lead the entire group alone. I was elected 
president for a second year, the fall of 2001. I remained responsible for managing a large budget and directed a high volume of programs and with the 
assistance of members, Jamie Jacquart and other administrators, CAB managed to overcome many obstacles and made progress in restructuring the 

Besides working with student organizations, I had other importont responsibilities such as completing a double major. I entered the university os o BIS major 
but soon found interest in advertising and public relations. I decided to pursue a second degree in marketing through the challenge of selling-out dances and 
concerts sponsored by CAB. I also took advantage of some of the study abroad programs offered at UMD. In the summer of 2001, I participated in the 
German Business Seminar through which I learned more about international management, trade, and German culture. This trip inspired me to join the UMD 
International Business Association (IBA). As member of the IBA, I participated in the Gverseos Task Force class that traveled to Costa Rica and Mexico to 
conduct marketing research. 

During my junior year of college, I became a certified insurance agent. Soon after, I opened DePina Insurance Agency to help finance my tuition. I was able 
to run the agency while pursuing my studies and other activities, with the help of family members and a reliable staff. 

Although I am just 22 years old, I feel I like I've hod a lifetime of experiences. The day I started college seems like yesterday. I will miss all of my friends, 
the faculty, and administration of UMass Dartmouth. You hove all meant a great deal to me and you have played an important role in my life. I learned so 
much during my time here, and I thank everyone who has taught and supported me. My last words to oil of you at UMD is - Life is short, take advantage 
of every opportunity you possibly con! In the words of Frederick Douglass, If there is no struggle, there is no progress." Work hard and you will succeed. 

I want to give special thanks to God and all of those who hove inspired me. I could not have done it with out you. To: My parents - John and Brendo 
DePina & family, Carol Rose, Jonathon Gomes, Bruce Sparfvin, Dr. Gordon, Ross Grace, Marjorie Fernondes, George Smith, Raymond Barrows, Dr. Logon, 
Jamie Jacquart, Michael Laliberte, Tanaya Walters, Susan Costa, Loretta Milliken, Jonathon Redley, CAB, UBS, CVSA, ULS, FDUH, College Now, & Yearbook. 
To my friends still struggling, best of wishes and don't give up. If I succeeded; you con! 


Cimstopher Laib 

[friend, resident director] 

I am honored to be o contributor to this yearbook. I om particularly connected to this year's graduates, as they were the first class of new students 
that I encountered and worked with when I came to UMD. I was the Resident Director (one of the first three Resident Directors ever at UMass 
Dartmouth) in 3B for two years, and then I moved down to Cedar Dell West and continued in my role as Resident Director. 

Over the years I have found that staying active on campus has been very important. Because of this, I have tried to reach beyond the Resident 
Director position and venture into other areas of Student Affairs. I've worked with the New Student Orientation Program and was instrumental in 
the creation of the Office of Greek Affairs, and I want to continue to stay active and work with as many students as possible. I have always been 
fulfilled by watching students grow over the course of their time in college. 

I never imagined that I would be working in Massachusetts, much less as a Resident Director, For the longest time I wanted to work in some 
capacity in on overseas embassy. All of that changed for me when I took one of the required Political Science courses in my undergraduate studies. 
I found it boring, ond I really didn't enjoy it. It probably didn't help much that the class met MWF from 3:00-4:00 pm during the Spring Semester. 
After my first year, I changed my major to Secondary Education/French with a Spanish minor. It seemed like a natural fit since my father taught for 
30 years and my mother also worked in the school system. It took me six years to get through college, but during that time I hod many life changing 
experiences. Most notable was the semester spent backpacking through 14 different European countries. When I come back to the US. it was time 
for me to do my student teaching. It was while student teaching that I realized that the 6:30am to 3:30pm lifestyle wasn't for me. I had been a 
Resident Assistant at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls for four year and the next logical step was for me to become a Hall Director. Prior to 
coming to UMD in '98, I worked for two years at Wittenberg University in Springfield, Ohio as a Hall Director and Interim Coordinator for Greek 

As for my career goals, I hove absolutely no idea what lies ahead. I am currently working on my Masters Degree in Management at Bridgewater 
State College. I'd like to continue working in higher education but may also venture into the corporate world. 

My advice to students is to always get involved on campus, whether you are a resident or commuter student find your niche. Students need to 
trust in themselves, trust what they ore doing, trust the decisions that they moke, and know that it is all part of a learning experience. Everyone at 
UMD (faculty, staff and administrators) are available to help and we are committed to helping you succeed. 

I want to wish the graduating class the best of luck in their future endeavors. Don't be afraid to venture out of New England, No matter how for 
away from New England you get, you ore never more than a car, bus, train or plane ride home. Take it from me, a "Cheesehead" from Wisconsin, 
our country is a beautiful place with a lot of interesting things to show you. It's your responsibility to get out there and discover them! 



eather Corbett 

[tour guide, friendly face] 

I was introduced to the idea of being a tour guide freshman year when I lived with a few 
experienced tour guides who liked to show my room. Besides that, I thought it would be a neat way 
to overcome shyness. Three years later, the trick worked. I hove overcome shyness and feel more self- 
confident, especially in front of large groups of people. 

Although the job has a lot of positive aspects, there are quirks to the position. There are the fall- 
outs, blunders, mistakes and random occurrences- with almost every tour. One of my most embarrassing 
moments on tour was at the library. In the quietest place on campus in front of about 10 kids and their 
parents, I fluttered over the word function. In stead of the eight-letter word, I blurted out the four- 
letter curse word. Another red-faced moment was setting off the alarm of the computer lab in Group 
6 at 9:30 on a Saturday morning. Imagine what the police thought! 

I am not the only one on tours to make random comments. Parents accompanying their sons/ 
daughters are very concerned about where their child is going the following year. A few have asked, 
"Are the rooms co-ed?" Or more commonly, "What's the drinking age on this campus?" The most 
obvious common sense questions, like these, I would rather not answer. 

As senior illustration major, I have other involvements with dubs/octivities and achievements including: 
Art History Minor, hlonors program. Women's Lacrosse, Stage Band, Pep Bond, Concert Band, tHonors 
Committee, Dean's List, work was featured twice in the Standard Times, and part-time work. Next 
year, I wont to continue my education in Savannah to earn o Masters in Illustration. Years to come, I 
see myself teaching and doing part-time freelance illustrations. 

L Matthew Lobo 

Traveler, TninKer 


I am on the verge of my twenty-second birthday. I have seen the 
sun rise over the moorlands of Scotland, wisps of clouds break carelessly 
from the structured facade of the Coliseum, the dirt and foundations 
that tossed the world into atomic warfare, and the sun set against the 
wine-blood of France. One always has the opportunity for growth; 
my most recent spurt came in the guise of foreign study. 

After three years at this university I set out for Nottingham-Trent 
University with the greatest intentions of consuming the world, its flaws 
and triumphs, in order to create a better me and spent eight months 
realizing that the better me peeked back from the looking gloss each 
morning and song off key in the shower. I met many students with 
personalities at such extremes my superficial imitations of them quickly 
tired and my previously disclosed epiphany came in the form of a 
never-empty pint glass. 

When I got home, comfortable with everything I hod grown into, I 
developed twelve rolls of film. On those twelve rolls of film, I appeared 
in two pictures. While writing this brief piece I thought about why my 
image was so sparse. The most important aspects of those eight 
months were the people that taught me being myself was the best 
person to be, the places that I con still see when I close my eyes, and 
the world that exists beyond our borders. 

One my own I learned possibly the most important rule by which 
anyone seeking to be happy should abide: the unending quest for 
acceptance begins with the person you spend the most time with. 


I went down with a medical team to Honduras lost summer. We rented trucks filled with supplies and 
helped the people out down there. I heard about it from o professor here - it was through a program 
with the company Cope Cores, started about 20 years ago. It was on incredible experience, I wanted 
to go down to see the culture too. It was a wild time, you can't drink the water, we ate what we 
managed to kill each day. The people of Honduras ore o great people. It's hot down there, and you 
worry about a lot, but it was so rewarding. 

I knew I wanted to go into nursing in high school. My mom's a nurse, a single mom, too. We had foster 
kids in the house that needed nurses...! just grew up around them and knew I wanted to do that. 

We have o great Nursing program here at UMD, one of the best in New England. I went to 
Northeastern for a little bit, but found UMass a better fit. It's a demanding program though. We go to 
doss two days o week, and spend two full days working at the hospital. I'm a nurse tech in Woymouth, 
there I hove to handle CPR, trauma, codes, a little bit of everything. The program is hard and you feel 
a bit isolated from the rest of kids on campus, only being here two days o week. You feel like you miss 
a lot, especially senior year, but it is all work it, I'm doing what I really want to do. 

Nursing is really here at UMD cause you're with your classmates all the time and you get to know the 
professors really well too, we're o close knit major. There are starting to be more guys in the program 
too, which is great to see. There are only about 4 or 5 in my class, but there are many in the sophomore 
and junior years. People hove to get it out of their heads that its only a female job.

I first went to Alaska the summer after freshman year, not knowing what I was getting myself into. I've been back every 
summer since, with my share of experiences. I can't seem to stay away. I love graphic design, but I feel like everyone spent the 
summer months working in offices, but I was watching whales breach and glaciers calve. I figure I have the rest of my life to 
work in on office. I did try to find ways to apply my skills, though. I noticed that I could tie knots fairly well, so maybe that was 
an exercise of my artistic ability. And I painted a lot of signage on the boat. 

I was the only girl on the deck staff, which taught me that basically I had to work super hard every single day, because if 
I ever let up, I think I'd be off the boat. I carry that into my schoolwork, especially now in my senior year. If I do let up, there 
is olways someone right behind me. I work with a small crew, sometimes my graphic design peers remind me of that. Some 
days ore good; some days are bad. We always work together, and I depend on them for opinion, inspiration, and support. . .same 
with my professors here. They hove constantly encouraged me to do the crazy things I do. 

I think everyone should spend a summer there. You'd be surprised to find that waking up at 5:30 in the morning everyday 
in Aloska is a whole nicer experience than trying to make an 8:00 class. And eating fresh salmon everyday isn t so bod either. 
A lot of people ask me what I'll do when I graduate, and I don't really know yet. I may just end up getting my captain's license 
and setting up a design studio in crew quarters..

[international student, resident assistant] 

I came over from Russia about five years ago. I came here all by 
myself and stayed with a host familv in Kansas. All I could say 
was "yes" and "no". But being somewhat young I was able to pick 
up English quickly. But I did have some trouble... one time I went 
into a store asking for change, and all I said was "can I get some. . ." 
and then I paused and remembered that I forgot to ask for change. 
The woman looked at me and I was holding two dollars. 

I like being an RA, but you do have to be very responsible. It's 
not all fun; first semester I had lots of phone calls from my residents 
early in the morning. Also first semester was difficult because I 
was taking 7 classes and was working 10 hours a week as a tutor in 
the Business and Math Center. I am a finance major, and plan on 
coming back here after graduation for my MBA. It is nice at UMass 
Dartmouth, I have never felt out of place because we have a lot of 
international students here, and also I have no problem interacting 
with Americans. 


MANDY FRASER [manager,, a r t , s t ] 



This year I was given the great opportunity of managing Campus Design. Campus 
Design does advertisements for both on and off campus events; banners, posters, flyers, 
table tents, etc. I worked here as a sophomore and last year as a staff artist. Then I was 
offered this position of manager in spring of 2001. 

It's a great place to get a taste of the real world involving art and the business of art. It 
gives students the chance to see their art hanging around the school, have it be their flyers 
all around the campus or a banner that they did hanging in the Commuter Cafe. 

Being the manager gave me the chance to not only understand the business side of the art 
world, but to build a staff and be an art director as well. 

This year we had on staff Lauren Jepsen, a graphic design major, Keely Ruckcr, graphic 
design, Kelly Clark, illustration major, Doug MacCormack, illustration, and Nikki Haitt, 
painting major. Having this diverse staff enabled me to give assignments based on eveiyone's 
individual style and talent. This year was exciting because we had a bigger staff second 
semester and also a much needed bigger office. It was a living and learning experience and 
everyone did a great job. We all worked hard but never lost sight of having fun.

I was once told by a college dean that, "we are not in the education business... we collect fees and dispense credits and degrees." 
That dean had no idea why the University, the College or why he was here. I am pleased to report that when I asked the current dean who he 
thought he worked for he quickly answered, "the students." Yes, the teaching faculty, deans and administrators (clerks) all work for the students. As I see 
it we, the faculty, are not here to teach courses but rather to teach students. We hove been carefully screened and selected to accept the responsibility 
to instruct and to guide. The instructors responsibility is to the student. The chairmen, deans and clerks (administrators) work is to provide what the 
instructors require to do their work for the students. The students role in this perspective is the most difficult. It means that students study with individual 
teachers, each of whom has something unique to pass on. This is a time to question authority and to recognize that respect must be earned. The 
administrators and faculty must be accountable to the students. The student must have a serious thirst for knowledge and must learn to use the resources 
of the University. It con and should be an exciting quest. This is a State University, therefore the Legislature and the Governor must be held accountable 
for the education of the Commonwealth, as well. The student is the boss and nothing can happen without their consent. The artificial separation of science 
from history or music and the other "subjects"" as o teaching convenience has distracted us from the fact that human experience is all one subject. It is up 
to the student to reunite them and to find their own comfortable notch among them. It is my wish for you that you continue your role as a student and 
find enrichment and new challenges in your life's work. 


Carroll Chase 

[student, ins p i r a t i o n ] 

This means a great deal to me. . . I was a terrible high school 
student. . .skipping school. . .a real party girl. . .and I paid for it 
dearly the next fifty years. Finally, I decided that I wanted to 
go bock... col lege would have been wasted on me if I hod 
gone fifty years ago. The war hod come. World War II, ond 
it was a very exciting time in some ways for a young person. 
A woman was expected to morry and have a family, which 
I did, but I have wanted a degree for a long time. 

I quit work when I was 71. I was working in mental health 
and substance abuse. I spent about eight years in that field. . . I 
have been in many fields. I was a copy writer in an advertising 
agency, an inside soles person in a large corporation, a research 
writer... different things as I went through life. I enjoyed 
everything, but I'm not real good with figures, mathematics. I 
like to write. 

I don't know what else I would do with myself if I weren't 
going to school... I like the young people here, they are very 
kind to me. I spend a lot of time here and I feel at home. I just 
wish I hod a bed here, occasionally, when I am waiting for a 
computer room to open. I could jump in there and take a nop. 
I'm afraid if I fell asleep like the young people do, they'd think 
I'm dead . . . roll me over to see if I'm breathing. 

I think that I probably hove a greater appreciation of what 
I'm working toward here thon the young people... I didn't 
hove the option to go to college when I was young. I was a 
Depression child, so if anybody went, it would have been my 
older brother. I will be the first one of my family to get a 
degree. . . I oppreciote the knowledge, the education the most, 
because I never hod it growing up. 

My memory is not completely there. . . I haven't lost myself 
yet, but the memory is not what it used to be. I find that I 
have to read things over and over again to remember it oil. 
I hate the blue [exam] book. When I write, I like to revise and 
rewrite. . .you can't do thot with a blue book. Sometimes you 
read something you've written and tear it up and throw it 
away. You can't do that with a blue book, not that I haven't 
wanted to. 

I'm not a porty animal any more... those days ore over. I 
barely ever miss o class now. I am very dedicated. This means 
so much to me. It's like that one thing that you have olways 
really, really wanted and you hove the opportunity and you 
just con't poss it up, even though sometimes I think that I can't 
do it, or I make a ridiculous statement in class and think, I can't 
believe I soid that"... but I'm usually forgiven and it passes. 


I guess I got involved with the Torch almost by accident. Two of my suitemates were on the design staff and they told me that the 
paper needed a new Managing Editor and that I should stop by. It was intimidating at first because I just walked in off the street and 
was included in the vote for the job, and I got it. 

In the spring, the Editor-in-Chief left for England for the semester, and I was next in line to take over. It was crazy at first. I didn't 
even know how to check my voicemoii. But gradually I started to get a hold of things. Luckily, a good part of the staff had been there 
for a few years, and I was friends with some of them, so they helped me out a lot. 

We made a lot of changes lost year. After some incidents that nearly everyone on campus can't seem to forget, the Torch hod a 
bit of a rut to dig themselves out of. But we gained a lot of new staff members, mode a lot of changes to the look of the paper, and 
started to improve. I think we've improved a lot since a few years ago. The staff is very close-knit and willing to help out with 
problems we have, and a lot of people are motivated to help make the paper better, which makes my job a lot easier.

"The King and I" was my first play here, I played Tup Tim. Doing theater at 
UMD you meet so many new people and get into doing things off campus. 
For instance I have done stuff for Little Theater of Fall River... I know people 
who do theater oil over, it's great. I've done o million plays, and even now 
when I do an audition I am just as nervous as I was for my first audition. Even 
here at UMD, where we audition around people we know. 

Some roles I just try to take the script, in one night try to learn it. I hide it 
from myself. Other times I hove it with me always, all the way up until the end. 
Very few characters have I felt very connected to. But when we did "A 
Chorus Line" where I played Cassie, it was a part that I really related to and 
I hod to fight the director to get the part... but I got it. That show was so 
demanding, mentally and physically... turned me into a frickin' gymnast. 

My first on-stage kiss was my best friend... it was like kissing my brother. 
The most embarrassing thing that happened to me was when I was in "Forum" 
lost year. I slid across the stage and fell on my face, that was really emborassing, 
we were running around the house and I just went down. 

I do a lot of behind the scenes stuff too, tickets and dealing with confused 
people who can't find the auditorium, organize the costumes, try to moke sure 
everything is going right.

My freshman year, I came in and played hockey, field hockey, the only real 
hockey to me. Freshman year, I started of mid-field, hod o few bumps along the 
way sophomore year, and then progressed through junior and senior year. I 
learned a lot about team dynamics and the fun of just hanging out. It's such a 
good opportunity to play sports at division three because you con focus more on 
academics, and without a lot of pressure, you con hove fun with it and often 
moke friendships that will really last. Things are so toned down that you don't 
hove to always be thinking about field hockey. 

I just wont to do as much as possible - I did theatre for a while, then I tried 
Student Senate, I was on the fHonors Committee, sports stuff, and eventuolly I 
got so stressed that I just had to get away, so I went to Italy for o semester. It 
was the best time of my life. I decided to go because after my sophomore year, 
I needed to take a big leap, o huge leap. 

I'm a graphic design major... I like that UMoss has a diversity that reflects 
real world dynamics, it's very true to life and honest. We're not trying to impress 
anybody, were just who we ore here. Sometimes you have to dig, whether 
you're completely bored or tired of what you re doing, or just looking for something 
interesting, you con find it. 


/^^r. James S^ars 

/ / [retiring professor, landscape artist] 

I've enpyed my 28 years on campus; I've enjoyed my research, 
the students, and my participatory classes very much. I feel privileged 
to hove been able to teach those classes. Most colleges hove the 
grounds crews doing the's unique to be given carte 
blanche to vv'ork the way we'd like. 

It started back in 1978 with a few biology students. We did 
the area behind the Science and Engineering building, those trees 
are huge now. . . The larger gardens hove been done in the last six 
or seven years. Of course it is more than just me now, I have 
worked with my collegue and wife Donna Huse, and Peter London 
from the College of Visual and Performing Arts. 

I always tell my students that they ore privileged to have a class 
like this on their campus. In most classes a student gets a lot of 
theory, but in these classes you get some theory, but students ore 
able to install their works, and they leave something here, it's a 
legacy. Similar classes at other schools work only on theory and 
design. We attended a conference in Scotland, and professors 
were asking us how we got our photos to look so life like. We hod 
photos of actually planted designs, others hod only gotten as far as 
computer renderings. 

Beside learning biology they learn to work in groups, group 
planning is a major learning experience 

I used to do landscaping on my own. I did a few major 
projects. But now I design something every now and again. I took 
a year off from Landscape and Design class, and I worked with a 
freshman class, we worked for a semester on the entrance to the 
school. Before it was just the sign and that ugly guard shock. The 
kids planted everything you see out there. We were able to get 
the grounds crew to lay the stone walls, they had never done 
anything like that before. 

A wonderful thing about the classes is that the funding comes 
from grants from President Bulger's Office, not from this campus' 
budget. We get about $100,000 which allows us to do a lot. 

These classes ore a real learning experience for the students. 
They learn to work in groups. One year we were working in front 
of the Campus Center, at the bus stop. Before we started working 
the planter between the Campus Center and the Res Cafe was a 
mess of cigarette butt...the kids had it all cleared out, hod large 
rocks placed and planted all of the plants planted in four hours; it 
was o tremendous team effort. 

One project I'd like to see is a ring walk around Ring Road. We 
have been thinking, too, about the area around the observatory. 
Donna and I have been to England many times, touring the English 
gardens, and they all hove a Greek Temple. Doesn't the observatory 
look like a temple? It would be nice to work a patio for that area 
and moke it into an English garden. 

I'm staying on to do some landscaping and I'm looking forward 
to working on painting. I'm a freshman again, in the Fine Arts 


Michael Vin 

[Janitor, Manger 

I started here at the Campus Center as a freshman, mopping floors, and then I was promoted to Assistant Operations 
Manager holfwoy through sophomore year. Aside from class this has really been the only thing I have been involved with on 
campus, but I love it. My co-workers have been my best friends here... we practically live in the building, but it's a great work 
environment. We're laid bock, but were all about doing the job and doing the job right, and I think it shows. We've actually tripled 
revenue of the Sunset Room this year. For the last yeor I have been running the entertainment at the bar, that's my thing. The 
concert series this year was actually called 'Bushy's Bond Series', that cracks me up. 

But we do so much more than run the bar and keep the center open and clean; conferences and lots of other events come 
throught the Campus Center and we have to organize things for every event that takes place here. Also, my job entails 
overseeing the crew that keeps the place running, maintenance and other workers, and then there's the financial side like running 
the bar, keeping track of oil the money that comes through the building. We do most of the grunt work around here too; setting 
up for events. We're here late a lot, cause after a Rott or any function that's at night we need to put it back the way it was. 

We're starting an organization called the Campus Center Council.. We want to bring more students and organizations in to 
use the center. People think about the center and just soy "plays in the auditorium and food in the cafe.' But so much else goes 
on here, and we wont to get more people to take advantage of that. 

This job has made me realize it's ok to be a manager. I like music and have been in bonds, but I'm better at managing them. You 
go with your strengths, right? From working with the Lucy Little Band when they performed in the Sunset Room they actually 
asked me to be their manger. But this job has been a real lesson in life, I feel like I'm coming away with two educations. It's been 
a real crash course in "management" or "business administration". Its great.

Angela N. Frietas 

[Senior Class President] 


To The Graduating Class of 2002, 

y congratulations and admiration is extended to all of you for your hard work, dedication and 
perseverance during your time here at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Hopefully 
you have made the best of the college experience and gained the invaluable lessons of wisdom, 
independence, cultural diversity and unity that will remain with you through every endeavor brought forth. 
UMass Dartmouth has been a place of practice for the future. It has allowed all of us to make knowledgeable 
choices, as well as learn from our mistakes. Fortunately, most of the decisions came without a cost or a 
consequence, so there was the opportunity to evaluate our performance in the process. We all taught each 
other in some way or another about how to be a better person and professional. 

The tragic events that took place on September 1 1^"", 2001 will live in us forever. One positive thing that 
should come out of such a loss is that it will help us make smarter decisions in life since we now know we 
are mortal beings that only have a certain amount of time here. It reminds us never to forget about what is 
really important. We must enjoy all that life has to offer. We need to take time for ourselves and do the 
things we dreamed of doing, without fear. This year has been enormously difficult for all of humanity and 
I respect your strength and unwillingness to give up in these trying times. I know that you, the Class of 
2002, will be able to weather any storm and overcome the most demanding obstacles life brings. This 
generation is faced with many new challenges. Let's embrace it, fight for what we believe in, and set a 
courageous example for younger generations to follow. 

It has been an honor and privilege to serve as your Class President for the past four years. Each of you 
has something extraordinary to offer this world. I encourage you to follow your heart and be your authentic 
self. Someone once told me that if you believe in yourself, and one other person believes in you, you could 
accomplish anything. Well, I truly believe in each and every one of you. It is time you gather all that you 
have acquired from UMass Dartmouth and other places and make yourself a success. 

Lastly, I want to thank my parents who have sacrificed everything for me, believed and invested in my 
goals and dreams, stood by me in good and challenging times, and loved me unconditionally. They 
continually amaze me with their love, strength, support, and faith. Without them, none of this would have 
been possible. I would also like to thank the people who made this four-year journey at UMass Dartmouth 
a memorable one. I am proud to have been a member of this community. 

Farewell Class of 2002!

The College of visual and performing arts trains the future's musicians, artists and designers. 
Those interested in one of these programs must complete two daunting semesters of 
"foundation" classes and many art history lectures on top of the requirements of their specialty. 
This year, UMD opened the Star Store, located in downtown New Bedford. Here, many of 
the students have studios where they do their work. The opening of the Star Store symbolizes 
the recognition and consequently, the growth of these creative programs.

Michael Laliberte 


"/ remember the dav I realized I wanted to work in higher 
education. I was meeting with the person that coordinated the New 
Student Orientation program at URI where I received my undergrad 
education. I remember thinking to myself, this is a job?! You can get 
paid to work with students everyday?! I knew I wanted to be a part of 

While Michael Laliberte graduated from URI with a bachelors 
in Human Development and Counseling, he decided to pursue his dream 
of working with college students. At Northeastern University in Boston, 
Michael completed the Higher Education Administration program. He 
recalls, however, that the most important things he learned were 
discovered outside the classroom while working in the Student Affairs 
office at Simmons College. There, he applied much of what he was 
learning. While helping to plan a Mother-Daughter Weekend, he asked 
these questions: "Why dp we do the same things every year?" Also, "What 
do the studentswant to do?" The changes that were made to the program 
based on student input were not only a success but they gave inspiration 
to others to make changes if the need or desire was there, and to 
incorporate student ideas into processes. This lesson has been the driving 
force behind Michael's work since that day. 



At Penn State Micliacl worked with various eultural, soeial, and aeademie groups to establish 
housing based on speeial interests. As Assistant Dean at Springfield College, he eontinued to 
empower students through New Student Orientation, Student Government and the Judicial Process. 

Michael came to UMass Dartmouth in 1999, and his presence has been seen or felt by 
virtuall)' ever)- student he has encountered. "His enthusiasm and willingness to help any student 
she^ws in everything he does," praises Ed Slapik, senior. He oversees International Student affairs 
\\ith Tina Bruen, Greek Life with Chris Laib, Student Activities with Jamie Jacquart, Judicial Affairs 
^\'ith Lisa Evaneski, Theatre, Student Senate, Golden Key Honors Society and the New Student 
Orientation Program. In all organizations, he encourages student leadership and he empowers 
students to make changes they feel the student body wants. Rae O'Neal, Orientation Coordinator 
for the 2001 program comments, "Michael is someone who lets you learn from experiences and 
mistakes. He trusts you enough to make those mistakes. He has taught me a lot about myself and 
my capabilities, and for that I thank him." Michael feels that the success of the programs he advises 
is due to the students' innovation. "I just give them the opportunity to make the changes they feel 
are necessary." 

When Michael entered UMass, he aimed to create a place where students would feel welcome 
and would be encouraged to talk and ask questions with administrators. This goal has been realized 
through his work. "Michael has been my 'go-to' person throughout my college career," states 
Nathan "Tak" Takavorian, President of Sigma Tau Gamma 2001 and Orientation Coordinator 2001. 
While our community has hit a speed bump in the road to modernization and growth, Michael 
promises that one thing will not change: the excellent services that the Division of Student Affairs 
provides UMass students. As an advocate of student involvement and leadership, Michael's presence 
is an inspiration for us all to maintain a positive attitude and strive to make improvements whenever 
the opportunity arises.

In Memorium Brian Smith 

We lost a great young man this 
year when Brian Smith, a senior here 
at UMD, was killed in a one car 
crash. Below is the essay that gained 
him admission to UMass 
Dartmouth, and all who know him 
say that it reads as "quintessential 
Brian". His father read this at the 
memorial service held on campus in 
March, and it touched many people; 
our thoughts are with his family and 


when I was a child I wanted to be an astronaut. Every day I would make plans to build spaceships or read a book on the shuttle. 
Later on, I realized that my dream to go up in my own spaceship would probably not happen and so I did the next best thing. It was 
by accident that I borrowed the movie Return of the Jedi and launched my love of science fiction. Within several months, I had read 
through all of the Star Wars' books and I had a fare share of the Star Wars collectibles For a while it was great. I would be riding 
alongside of Luke and Han m the Millennium Falcon. I was going where they went and doing what they did. Something however, 
was missing I could only follow them and not forge ahead for myself. That soon got me involved with RPG's or "role playing 
games" with these games, we would act out different characters from Star Wars and have our own adventures. When my family got 
their first computer, I quickly learned that with such games as Myst and other interactive puzzles, I could enjoy a world of my 
creation. Soon I wanted more and more to make these games that gave me such enjoyment I started by making games for the TI-83 
graphing calculator. It had a crude form of Basic that could be programmed into it. I found the limits however, to the calculators 
programming abilities. That was when I started using the computer for programming. I bought a Borland C + + compiler. I did not 
know how to use it and so I took a course at UMASS Dartmouth in C programming. It was a course for college credit and I got a 
B + . Next, I started making web pages. After several months, I made over twenty pages that use close to 30 Megs on the web. I 
wrote all the pages in pure HTML and learned the fundamentals of web design. All of these things helped me to see that computers 
were for me. 

During my time at U-Mass, I hope to learn more about life and how the world works. I will be living in the dorms and so I will 
have an opportunity to learn the skills necessary to live and work with people. I hope that U-Mass will not only help me become a 
good computer scientist, but a good worker. I have heard that the Computer Science program at U-Mass will give me the real world 
knowledge of hc^w to program antl design the systems that 1 woukl need to succeed in the job market. Experience of the co-op 
program will give me on-the-job training and help me to pay lor mv tuition. 1 beliexe that U-MASS can help me to realize my career 
goal of creating video game software that will allow me to continue to iorge ahead in creating my own adventures.

The 2002 Scrimshaw, volume 42, was created by a student staff at University 
of Massachusetts Dartmouth and printed by Walsworth Pubhshing Company 
in Marceline, MO. David Roth was the pubHshing consultant. Caren Orlick 
Korin was the photography representative. Student portraits were taken by 

Davor P 

'ress run was 1,300. 

This book was printed on Monarch Gloss and Noble Matte 100 paper. 
Premium matte navy and silk screen gold 802 were used for the cover. End 
sheets are 65 lb. Twilight Grey. 

Copy fonts include Garamond, Goodname, and Maximo. 

All photographs were taken with the following cameras: Epson 850Z digital. 
Cannon Rebel 2000 cameras and a Sony Cyber-shot digital. Cameras were 
equipped with 200, 400, 800 and 1600 speed Fuji film. 

The 2002 Scrimshaw was produced on Macintosh G4 computers usnig 
Microsoft Word, Adobe Photoshop 6.0 and Adobe PageMaker 6.5. 

The Scrimshaw has been the official yearbook of University of Massachusetts 
for 42 years. Editorial content does not necessarily reflect the views of the 
University. Address inquiries to : Editor, Scrimshaw Yearbook, 285 Old

i sit here with the last 30 pages of the 2002 Scrimshaw, ready for submission. There were times I thought we might never be able to make 
his final deadline, but we have done it. Although it has been a year of occasional setbacks as far as the program goes, we seemed to always 
pull through and have been able to keep the quality of the book extremely high. 

I feel that we hove set o standard with this book. Long hours went into the perfecting of spreads, the choosing of just the right photos and 
designing a look and feel that appeals to the students but also honors the University, as we serve not just for the students but as the permanent 
record of UMD in 2001 and 2002. 

I con honestly say that this book has lived up to every hope that I hod for it in September. In so many situations one starts out full of great 
expectations: but time passes, the pressures mount, unexpected obstacles arise, and things don't end up the way you intended. But looking at all 
224 pages of this book I feel we have taken our setbacks in stride, only to work harder to make the book great. Only through the help of Lara 
Henderson and Moddy Eiche did this happen. Lara will be next year's editor-in-chief, and I hove all confidence that she will produce a beautiful 
book, full of more of the wonderful ideas she brought to this one. fHer dedication to the book was amazing, and I don't know how to thank her 
enough. Moddy set the scene for the way that this book looks, and I continue to be in awe of her creative talents. I was so happy that when 
I asked her to be my design editor she accepted, because we were then guaranteed a lovely book. I truly appreciate the work of everyone that 
we had on staff; those that stuck with us and took time out of their busy schedules to be a port of this project. 

I am excited by some of the advancements we made in the program this year. We introduced the paperless" office, where we use images 
digitally, and we hove been able to obtain computer equipment and software that mokes our jobs much easier. A nice thing has been the 
involvement of our advisers, Jamie Jocquart and Tanoyo Walters. LJp until now the yearbook has worked very independently, with a simple 
update given to the adviser now and again. Producing a yearbook is such a larger task than I imagined when I stepped up to the job of editor 
in September, ond with no one here having much of an idea of how the Scrimshaw handled its operation in the post it was comforting at times 
to hove Jamie and Tonoyo available and eager to help: not only myself and my staff, but helping to build a program that will be strong for years 
to come. 

To the class of 2002, I hope that you enjoy this book, and that we were able to capture the ports of your experiences here at UMD that you 
will remember most. Good luck and good-bye, I have a feeling that we will do the greatest of things.

Much like Dec. 7, 1941 (the attack on Pearl Harbor), Sept. 11, 2001 also became "a day 
that will live in infamy." 

At 8:48 a.m., a hijacked American Airlines commercial jetliner crashes into one of New 
York City's World Trade Center towers. At 9:05, a second plane crashes into the second 

As people try to evacuate, the impact and heat from the crash cause the first tower to 
tumble to the ground in enormous clouds of smoke and debris. The second tower collapses 
shortly thereafter, leaving nothing but ash, rubble and destruction for miles where one 
of our nation's greatest landmarks once stood. 




A At 9:40 a.m., a 
third hijacked plane flies 
into the Pentagon, and 
within the hour, a fourth 
crashes near a wooded 
area in western Pennsyl- 
vania. More than 4,200 
lives are lost in total. 

A The hijackings are 
part of an intended mul- 
titude of terrorist attacks 
on America headed by 
Islamic radical and 
wanted terrorist leader 
Osama bin Laden and 
his al Qaeda terrorist net- 
work. Bin Laden had 
been making open threat 
against America for sev- 
eral years, demanding the 
U.S. withdraw from the i 
Middle East. 

"Today, our fellow citizens, 

our way of life, 

our very freedom 

came under attack... 

Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts 

of terror... The 

pictures... have 

filled us with... 

terrible sadness 

and a quiet, 

unyielding sense 

of anger."

In an address to the nation, President George W. Bush A 
demands Afghanistan's ruling party (the Taliban) hand 
over bin Laden. The Taliban attempts to negotiate the 
United States' demand, saying they will not cooperate 
without evidence of bin Laden's involvement in the 
attacks. Bush states the demand is non-negotiable, and 
the U.S. will take retaliatory action against Afghanistan if 
they refuse to hand bin Laden over. 

Airlines around the world suffer major 
setbacks, many declaring bankruptcy. 
Congress approves an airline assis- 
tance package that includes $1 5 bil- 
lion in financial aid and a victim's 
compensation fund to limit expensive 
lawsuits that might bankrupt airlines 
like American and United. 

A Former Pennsylvania Gov- 
ernor Tom Ridge is appointed by 
President Bush to head the newly 
created Office of Homeland Secu- 
rity Cabinet post, which involves 
coordinating and creating a stra- 
tegic plan for homeland defense 
against future terrorist attacks. 

"And tonight, the United States makes the following demands 

on the Taliban... These demands are not open to negotiation 

or discussion... This is the world's fight... the fight of all who 

believe in progress... tolerance, and freedom... We will rally 

the world to this cause by our efforts, our courage. We will 

not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail."

As the war on terrorism continues, 
the U.S. rallies the support of the 
international community. Taking the 
intelligence gained from prisoners as 
well as investigations at home, Amer- 
ica turns attention to other terrorist 
havens around the world, such as 
Abu Sayyaf, a terrorist group in the 
Philippines allegedly connected with 
the al Qaeda network. ■ 



International Front for Fighting Jews and Crusades 
This is a large coalition of groups dedicated to killing Ameri- 
cans and destroying U.S. interests worldwide. It was formed 
by Osama bin Laden in 1998, and includes al Qaeda (also 
founded by bin Laden), a network of small terrorist cells 
operating independently around the world, dedicated to 
overthrowing Middle Eastern rulers and removing western- 
ers from Muslim countries. 

The International Front is partnered with the Egyptian 
Islamic jihad, or "Al jihad." This group was established in 
the 1970s with the aim of overthrowing the Egyptian govern- 
ment and setting up an Islamic state. The group's leadership 
is divided between those who favor violent means and those 
who favor more peaceful means, particularly against U.S. 

Northern Alliance 

The Northern Alliance is an Afghanistan rebel faction that 
has actively opposed the Taliban for five years. Prior to 
the fall of the Taliban, the Northern Alliance claimed five 
percent of Afghanistan, while the Taliban controlled the 
other 95 percent. 

Abu Sayyaf 

Abu Sayyaf is a smaller Islamist group fighting to establish 
an Iranian-style Islamic state in Mindanao, an island in the 
southern Philippines. The group, whose name means, "Bearer 
of the Sword," has ties to a number of Islamic fundamentalist 
organizations around the world, including Osama bin Laden's 
al Qaeda and Ramzi Yousef, an individual convicted of orga- 
nizing the 1 993 bombing of the World Trade Center in New 
York City. Abu Sayyaf has a membership of approximately 
several hundred young Islamic radicals, many of whom were 
recruited from universities and high schools. 

I.S.A.F. (Internal Security Assistance Force) 

Also called the "peacekeepers," the I.S.A.F. was developed 

after the collapse of the 
Taliban to help keep 
peace in Afghanistan 
during the interim 
government's establish- 
ment. The peacekeepers

One of the four hijacked planes in the terror- 
ist attack, United Airlines Flight 93, crashed 
near the woods of Shanksville, Pa. The FBI 
believes the plane was intended for another 
strategic target (possibly the White House) 
and that some of the passengers, including 
Thomas Burnett and Jeremy Click, battled 
with the hijackers in the final moments before 
the plane crashed. Both Burnett and Click had 
phoned family members and spoke of a plan 
to foil the hijackers. "We are all going to 
die," Burnett reportedly told his wife minutes 
before the crash, "but a group of us is going to 
do something about it."

teers across the country came to the aid of

mately S500 million intended to help victims 
and the families of those who died or were 
reported missing after Sept. 11. 

At $2 billion, the 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake 

City, Utah were the most expensive winter games ever. But 

despite beefed-up security and underlying worry 
over terrorist acts, this year's games, themed 
"Light the Fire Within/' burned strong 
with patriotism, pride and 
amazing athletic performances. 

Snowboarding became ah official Olympic sport for the 
first time this year, and the U.S. swept the competi- 
tion. Ross Powers, Danny Kass and Jarret Thomas 
took the gold, silver and bronze in the 
men's halfpipe (giving the U.S. its first 
Winter Olympics medals sweep in 
46 years). American Kelly Clark 
also took the gold in the 
women's halfpipe.
