To the Class of 


Copy With shared experiences, mutual memo- 
Pamela Malatesta ries, and unforgettable mischief, the class 

of 2006 will forever be linked. When we 


Chi-Hang Fung , 

came onto this campus we were promised 
Oceans of Opportunity." Together we 
found the opportunities that UMass 
Dartmouth had to offer, and we made 
them our own. We have seen the highs 
and lows of our early adulthood, and you 
know what? They were even more amaz- 
ing than we had anticipated! 

As we grew as individuals, we watched 
our campus grow and transform with us:

Never Forget to 

Stop, Rewind, and Relive 

the Good OI' Days 

inside and outside of Ring Road. These 
transformations include the building 
of six new Residents Halls to meet the 
growing need for on-campus housing. 
Along with the new residence halls, we 
watched the university open the new 
Charlton College of Business building 
and make incredible renovations in the 
original academic buildings. With all the 
construction and change on this campus 
we still managed to study, play and work 
hard in, and out of the classroom! 

Just as the physical structure of the 

campus continued to evolve and grow, 
the campus community changed too. 
We, as a class, participated in over 50 
clubs and groups associated with UMD. 
These groups have brought us endless 
amounts of entertainment. Who could 
forget those foam dance parties, Dane 
Cook, and the fabulous senior week? We 
enjoyed playing on over 26 varsity teams 
and showing our support for these teams 
by being the best fans a University can 
offer. Along with campus events, we will 
always remember those long study nights 
in the library, the early morning coffee 

runs, and the late nights socializing at 
the UMD Lounge. We are the class of 
2006 and have participated in every area 
that the University of Massachusetts at 
Dartmouth has to offer! 

When looking back, we realize that the 
campus has not been the only envi- 
ronment to experience change. Our 
entire world has changed. Through the 
incredible advancements of technology, 
we are entering a world where people 
and information are separated only by a 
single mouse click. We are also entering 


a world that has endured catastrophic 
forces of nature, and the horror of terror. 
We are entering a world that is in flux 
and redefinition. The world that we are 
heading into is going to call on us to help 
shape and define the future. 

(And let's not forget that we are heading 
into a world that has seen the Boston Red 
Sox win a world series!) 

As we all move on in life, we will continue 
to grow and challenge ourselves with the 
same focus and determination that has 
defined the class of 2006. We are ready 
to head out into the real world and take 
with us cherished memories of our days 
at UMD. I advise you all to take what you 
have learned and show this new world 
that the University of Massachusetts at 
Dartmouth has prepared you for the chal- 
lenges ahead. 


And no matter what comes your way. . . 
always remember the good oP days !

Where It All 
Begins Again 

Move- in 

Copy Watch out!" warns a student as she wad- 
Joshua Sadeck dies into Hickory, struggling to balance a 
clear box seemingly filled with millions of 
Photos hygiene products. 
Christina Aucella 

Christina Briggs Excuse me!" exclaims another, as he 
Jason Perry fights for the last possible elevator spot, 
destined for his floor. 

Those are just some of the phrases you 
hear on a typical move-in weekend at 
UMass Dartmouth. 


For residents of UMass Dartmouth, 
move-in weekend is a time filled with 
chaos, farewells, friends, fresh starts, and 
lots of heavy lifting. During the days 
of September 3 rd - 5 th , about 4,000 
students entered the world of UMass 
Dartmouth. For some it was for the first 
time, while for others, it was the return to 
college life for one last time. 

This year's move-in weekend had the 
support of Mother Nature, as condi- 
tions were described as "perfect". A cool 

breeze, accompanying a cloudless sunny 
sky, made move-in weekend feel fresh and 
clean. Many of the seniors entering the 
new dorms commented on how simple 
this year's move-in actually was. "Maybe 
it was seeing a brand new sparkling clean 
room that made lugging those boxes up 
those stairs much easier," a senior from 
the newly established residence hall Birch 
remarked. "It really wasn't that crazy 
around here." 

While numerous volunteers and campus 

officers controlled the chaos, not everyone 
had smooth transitions. Through the 
maze of clear storage boxes and hastily 
parked cars, students and their families 
could be seen standing together playing 
the waiting game. In fact, some students 
and their families waited for hours just to 
get into their rooms. "The RA's key and 
my key won't open my room," com- 
plained a sophomore from Cedar Dell 
South. As some students continued to 
wait with their families, others were just 
saying goodbye. 

Many students agree that it can be tough 
to say goodbye, but it is also good to say 
hello to new resident neighbors. 

In addition to meeting up with old 
friends, move-in weekend reintroduces 
UMD residents to freedom; lots and lots 
of freedom. Whether it's the fun of late 
night parties, or the tedious chores of 
laundry and dishes, freedom brings ex- 
citement and responsibility to UMD life. 

With each new year comes feelings of 
anticipation and anxiety. For freshmen, 
move-in is the start of a new chapter 
in life, the beginning of something un- 
known and exciting. For sophomores, it is 
their second chance to meet new people 
and to work towards their academic 
goals. For juniors, the last half of their 
journey through college is beginning. 

However, for seniors, move-in week- 
end had a different feel altogether. It 
is where for one last time it all begins 

One Student's Journey 
Through Housing Life 

Copy I still remember freshman move in day. 

Caitlin Magura It was a bright and sunny afternoon as 
my family and I pulled into the UMass 
Photos campus. After waiting in an endless line 

Chi-Hang Fung of cars, we finally made it to the back of 
Robert's Hall. I got to my hallway on the 
top floor and saw the brightly colored 
name tags on the outside of my door. I 
walked in to a very big "L" shaped room 
with a wall of windows and immediately 
fell in love with the sunshine that poured 
in through the glass sliding doors. One of 
my roommates was already there and she, 
along with my dad. helped me move my 
stuff in from the car. Within four hours, 
it began to feel like home. I was very 
impressed with the large and spacious 
area in the triple room. Being on the top 
floor, we had a great view of a grassy field 
behind Roberts and Ring Road. With a 
small grill and some patio furniture, the 

balcony was definitely my favorite part of 
where I lived freshman year. 

As for my sophomore year, less said the 
better (reassigned rooms and roommates 
and ding)- close living quarters in a 

Over the past three years, I had learned 
the tricks of the trade, so moving into 
Oak Glenn was pleasant. It was almost 
brand new with great looking furniture, 
clean white wall, and personal bath- 
rooms. I was friends with all the girls in 
my suite and the building was always very 
clean, quiet, and had the great advantage 
of having a grill on the bottom floor for 
those late night grilled cheese cravings. 
Living in Oak Glenn was a blast! 

ment buildings, Willow, with my three 
good friends. The new apartments are 
nothing short of fabulous. They are very 
homey, cozy, and so much fun. I love hav- 
ing my own room, but I also love sitting 
around in the kitchen and family room 
with my friends. The kitchen appliances 
are all brand new (got to love the dish- 
washer) and the furniture is very modern. 
However, the best part would have to be 
the full size-beds. They are nice to spread 
out on after a long day of studying. Let's 
not forget that walking to class is now a 
piece of cake thanks to the apartments 
being within a stone's throw distance 
to the academic buildings. My place in 
Willow is definitely the best place to live 
and I plan on spending my 5 tn year in the 
new apartments as well.

guess the goods times and the bad times 
are all a part of that thing called the "col-

Moving to the New 
Woodland Community 

Copy Who knew that dishwashers and bar 
Simeon Cortezano stools were something to brag about? 
Who knew not having to share a 
Photos bathroom with eight other people was a 
Lindsey Nyggaril reason to celebrate? Let's face it; when 
Jason Perry the new residential halls were finally com- 
pleted in January of 2005, beginning with 
Evergreen and Willow and in September 
with Aspen, Ivy, Hickory, and Birch, those 
who had spent many days in hotels and 
on waiting lists rejoiced with arms raised, 
fists pumped, and loud cheers. 

Known as the Woodlands Community, 
this new housing area is the home to 
1,200 students, mostly upperclassmen. 
When walking into these newly designed 
living areas, a certain type of calmness 
overcomes you. Perhaps it is the cleanli- 
ness, or maybe it's the newness of it all, 
but there is no denving that the Wood- 

land Community offers a life of luxury. 

Inside the apartment-style residency, stu- 
dents can find a living room space that in- 
cludes a television stand and a cushioned 
chair with several couches. In addition, 
there are four individual bedrooms (two 
in some spaces), two full bathrooms, a 
kitchen fully loaded including a standard 
refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, barstools 
and an "eat-up alcove." These areas have 
everything including the kitchen sink. 

Aspen and Ivy are located on the outside 
of Ring Road while Evergreen, Willow, 
Hickory, and Birch are located on the 
inside. Each building is four floors high, 
housing 50 students per floor. They 
also include laundry rooms, vending 
machines, common areas, and elevators. 
Hickory, Birch, and Aspen are designated 

to house those students that are of age. 

As a Woodland Community member, 
if you don't feel like being cooped up in 
your room all day; then you can venture 
out into the woods and visit the brand- 
new volleyball court (sand included!). Or 
you could get your game on at one of the 
two regulation-sized basketball courts. 
Skaters have nothing to fear and will not 
be disappointed by the new inline-skating 
rink located adjacent to Aspen and Ivy. 

For large events and functions, The 
Commons, located in between Hickory/ 
Birch and Evergreen/Willow, is a 3,000 
square foot function room that students 
and organizations can reserve at no cost. 
The Commons has the capacity to host 
300 people and can be broken up into 
three rooms that measure out to be 1.000 

square feet in size. There are six smaller 
rooms in addition to the main function 
room, as well as audio and video equip- 
ment. And, of course, catering services 
can be made available upon request. 

As far as parking goes, lots eight, nine, 
and ten are reserved specifically for 
Woodland students. There is one parking 
spot per Woodland Community resident, 
ensuring that the walk "home" isn't too 

With so many new things to see and to 
do, residents of the Woodland Commu- 
nity can raise their arms as high, pump 
their fists as much, and cheer as loud as 
they did when they first made their way 
'into the woods". 

or Keside: The 


Copy ( )ne of the major decisions a student 
Joshua Sadeck makes when he\she enrolls to UMass 
Dartmouth is whether they want to live 
Photos the life of a commuter or resident. For 
Chi-Hang Fung most, financial status and current resi- 
Christina Amelia dence are the two deciding factors as to 
whether or not a student will be labeled a 
commuter or resident for the remainder 
of their college lives. Each label means a 
drastic difference in lifestyle and overall 
experience here .it I Ml). 

Ah. the drive to UMass Dartmouth for 
a commuter: always a new experience 

depending on what Mother Nature has 
up her crafty sleeve. One day. you'll be 
cruising down Old Westport Road with 
the- windows down as a warm breeze 
brushes across your face. The next day, 
you're bundled up in your winter coat.

and asking yourself "Why do we still have 
school today?" 

Commute) life keeps all senses alert; the 
sight of traffic jams and orange parking 
tickets, the sound ol" car horns and the 
muffled "Can I take your order?" from 

and the 


the drive-thru speaker, and the strangely 
addicting' smell of gasoline are all too 

The life of a resident, while better suited 
for experiencing all that the UMD has 
to offer, has its fair share of advantages 
and hardships. Of the 8,500 students 
currently enrolled at UMass Dartmouth. 
4,600 of them live on campus. Living on 
campus provides many unique experi- 
ences for the senses: the tastes of the Res 
Cafe or one's own cooking and the odors 
of a roommate or a pile of laundry that 

desperately begs to be cleaned. And while 
commuters may complain about having 
to get up early to drive to class, residents 
know that nothing compares to getting 
woken up at 3 A.M by a prank fire alarm! 

If a commuter was to rewind back 
through all their years at UMD, they 
may notice that their overall commuter 
lifestyle barely changed. Everyday is just 
another drive to class, similar to that 
of commuting to a job. And due to the 
nomadic lifestyle, social interaction can 
be difficult. However, residents deal with 

change almost every semester. Each new 
year, there is a new place to live, and 
new people to interact with. The sense 
of personal responsibility increases with 
each passing year, as there are more and 
more challenges that confront them. 
From learning how to live away from 
home, to understanding" the importance 
of personal responsibility, the resident 
takes many lifelong lessons to the "real 
world" after graduation. 

Commuters and residents have drastically 
different lifestyles, but in the end. they 

both are essential pieces to the commu- 
nity of UMass Dartmouth. 

So, would you rather ride or reside?

Copy Everyday for the past four years, James 
Soraya Jonel-Branco Snow has come to UMass Dartmouth 
with a smile on his face that shows he is 
Photos ready to work. To most students that see 
Chi-Hang Fung him daily, he is simply known as 

" Hap." When you meet him, you will 
immediately find a sincere and genuine 
person who is devoted to his work, family, 
and religion. Many students have encoun- 
tered him at the University; whether doing 
custodial work in Roberts Hall or kitchen 
work at the Res Cafe. 

In between jobs, he often relaxes or gives 

[managed] a rock-n-roll band, 
and was a rodeo cowboy for 


back to the community by donating 
food and supplies to the Salvation Army 
roughly three to four times a week. He 
finds it rewarding to give back to the com- 
munity because it is a way for him to give 
something in return for all the good things 
he has experienced. Formerly from West- 
ern Massachusetts, Mr. Snow attended 
Williams College. Some of his interests 
include spending time with his family, 
listening to Bluegrass music, and watching 
bull riding on TV. 

Before working at UMass Dartmouth, Mr. 

Snow had three previous jobs. He ran a 
rock-n-roll band, and was a rodeo cowboy 
for 24 years. At his third job, he was a 
teacher at Dartmouth Middle School for 
38 years, in which he retired from in 1999. 
He considers teaching one of the hardest 
professions ever, and gives credit to all the 
professors at UMD. He credits each one of 
these professions for shaping who he has 
become today. 

Starting a new job at UMass Dartmouth 
seemed only natural given that the loca- 
tion is close to home, and that his son and 

daughter are UMD graduates. The experi- 
ence here has been very good for him. "I 
have an appreciative staff that's easy to 
get along with, good working conditions, 
excellent exercise, and I get to meet kind 
people everyday — it is a great way to end 
a working career." 

For seniors, James Snow's advice is to 
'treat people well": a commitment that is 
often overlooked by many, but definitely 
not by the kind and charitable man known 
simply as "Hap".

hact or 

Copy As seniors, you've heard all the stories re- 

Joskua Sadeck lating to the myths and legends of UMass 
Dartmouth. These are stories involving a 

Photos suicidal architect, a campus constructed 

Monique Duquette with Satanic symbolism, trained squirrels. 

Jamie Jai quart flying cars and much more. Which ones 

Jason Perry are true? Where did they come from? 

The radio tower has HOW many steps? 

Many of these myths originate from the 
campus" overall design. Many believe 
that the radio tower standing at the cen- 
ter of UMD has 666 steps, and that the 

benches throughout resemble that same 
number. Some say that from an overhead 
view of the campus, the buildings create 
a pentagram, with the tower as the center 
and Ring Road forming a circle around 
it. These myths are all false: there are 
only about 300 steps in the tower, the 
benches arc actually octagonal, there is 
no pentagram from above, and for the 
last time, there are no parking spots on 
the roofs for flying cars! 

What you will find to be true about the 
Structure of the campus is that it was ere- 


ated out of inspiration from Italian Re- 
naissance Cathedrals. It was modeled in 
the style known as Brutalism, which aims 
to convey a masculine and unfinished 
look. The architect of UMD was a man 
named Paul Rudolph who, contrary to 
popular belief, didn't commit suicide by 
jumping out of the bell tower on the first 
day of classes (asbestos cancer claimed 
his life in 1997). What he did do was 
try to make the campus feel apart from 
the rest of the world by placing huge 
mounds, known as berms, to block the 
view of the parking lots. The concrete 

and large windows inside and outside 
exist to make people feel as if they are 
outside when they are in the buildings. 

There are also stories that do not involve 
the campus architecture. Some tell their 
friends that the squirrels throughout 
UMass Dartmouth are trained and placed 
on campus to add to a "wilderness" 
atmosphere. The reason why these furry 
creatures are so tame is because they 
have become accustomed to thousands 
of people walking around them for many 
years. That, or they can't wait to hear the 

next outrageous myth created by a pass- 
ing UMD student... 

The myths and legends of UMass Dart- 
mouth are a special part of the campus' 
culture. Whether these stories are fact or 
fiction is irrelevant, as they continue to 
bring generations of students and alumni 
together for discussion. Who knows how 
long some of these myths will survive, 
and what new ones will be created in 
the coming years. You never know, UMD 
could one day be known as a secret test-

CAB president, asked Veronica if she 
would like to join the organization, as pan 
of the Traditions Chair. Unable to say no, 
Veronica quickly joined. Now. a year later, 
she is known as president of CAB. 

CAB is the organization all L ! M1) students 
love. They are the ones that coordinate

me! Il has made my college experience, 
here at L'Mass Dartmouth, simply amaz-

and students, and I have so many great 
memories because of that." 

She also loves to see newcomers join CAB, 
taking on a role, and succeeding. "Those 
are the times when my role as president 
seems really worth while and profitable." 
Instead of being just an extracurricular 
activity, her role in CAB has turned into 
so much more. It is her escape; a place

Kicking It OffWith Comedy:

attendance of their show in the Campus

I he arrival oi the two comedians was 
one of the highlights of UMass Dart-

campus-oriented events to help celebrate 
the new academic year. Students lined 
up .ill over the Campus Center, eagei K 
anticipating the two-hour show was 
guaranteed to be a big hit. For Steve By- 
rne, ihis would be his first performance at 
l Ml). Kelly, however, performed lasi year 
as ,1 pan of the Tourgasm tour with Dane 
Cook. Those who , mended Tourgasm 

agreed that Kcllv had the best perfor- 
mance, as he received a standing ovation 
at the end of his routine. The students 
demanded for his return to I'MD and 
their wish was granted. 

The moment the Main Auditorium 
doors opened, students rushed to tin- 
floor and balcony areas, searching 
for the besi seats possible. The room 
was buzzing as students who at- 
tended previous Kelly and Byrne 
stand-up shows informed their friends 
on what they were about to witness. 
Fortunately for these first-timers, words 
can barely describe the type of humor 
that Kelly and Byrne possess. 

Steve Byrne made his way on-stage 
and acknowledged the roar of approval 
from the crowd. Sieve relied hcavilv on 

audience interaction, .giving him a very 
personable aura on-stage. He had no 
problem going into the crowd and sitting 
next to a random person as he continued 
with his routine. Pcrformingjokes that 
ranged from simple life observations to 
re-enactments of Bruce Lee's love life, 
Byrne had the audience in the palm of 
his hand resulting in a nice ovation once 
his set ended. 

Almost immediately, Robert Kelly took 
the stage, inciting a booming response 
from the crowd. Would he live up to his 
memorable performance from Tourgasm 
last year? That question was answered 
after his first of many gut-bustingjokes. 
Kelly was very blatant with his comedy, 
as he had no problem making fun of 
himself and everyone in attendance. He 
playfully ribbed a happy couple in the 

audience, mocking their two-month re- 
lationship and building jokes off it. This 
generated laughs from both the crowd 
and the couple. By the end, Kelly re- 
ceived a loud standing ovation as students 
applauded, cheered and hollered his 
name. He didn't just live up to last year's 
performance; he completely dwarfed it in 

Once the show was over, Kelly and Byrne 
hung around outside the auditorium, 
chatting it up with fans and students. 
It was a great way to end a memorable 
night of comedy, and an excellent kick 
off to the school year. 

Robert Kelly and Steve Byrne Invade Welcome Week 

Copy With a commanding stage presence and 
Jason Perry energetic personality, it's no surprise that 
Robert Kelly fell into the art of stand-up 
Photos comedy. Born in Medford, Massachusetts, 
Jenna Rodrigues Rob attended Bunker Hill Community 
College with the intention of earning his 
associates degree in Fine Arts. Unfor- 
tunately, Rob had never been a fan of 
school and being a commuting college 
student made matters worse. The college 
experience turned out to be a joke. "I had 
lunatic teachers, such as my psychology 
professor, who would give me all the 
answers to the tests." Only needing two 
more credits to graduate, Rob dropped 
out of college and started his career in 
stand-up comedy; his passion in life. 

Rob's decision to be a stand-up comedian 
has brought him great success. He has 
performed on Comedy Central's "Pre- 

mium Blend", been a regular guest on 
' Tough Crowd with Colin Quinn" and 
has even dabbled into the realm of televi- 
sion drama with appearances on "Law 
& Order: Special Victims Unit" and 
'Law & Order: Criminal Intent." Despite 
these on-screen appearances, Rob enjoys 
performing on-stage at large universities 
and small comedy clubs the most. 

With ten years of stand-up experience, 
Rob has had many great memories.

could ever have provided. 


Student Reflection 


Copy As a freshman about to step foot on the 
Jummy Olusekun campus of UMass Dartmouth, I knew 
very little of what I would be getting 
Photos myself into. All I knew was that I was in 
Chi-Hang Fung for an adventure: one that would give me 
the freedom that I desperately craved. 

Four years later, the adventure is coming 
to a close. Saying that it has been a great 
adventure would be an understatement. 

For most of freshman year, I kept to 
myself. You could find me either in the 
library or in my room, knee deep in

homework. On weekends, my friend 
would try to get my roommate and I to 
go out, but we consistently uttered an all 
too common phrase, "We are studying." 
I was keeping myself in an impenetrable 
shell; one that my friend was waiting for 
me to break out of. Fortunately I broke 
out of my shell real quick thanks in part 
to joining a bunch of UMD organizations 
including the Rho Rhoses of the Sigma 
Phi Rho Fraternity They have become 
my second family and without them, half 
of my experiences on campus would have 
been a lot harder. I know that being part 

of this elite family made me who I am 

My academic experience has been filled 
with ups and downs. I came here yearn- 
ing for knowledge and I received it. There 
were instances that made me question my 
decision to come here, one in particular 
dealing with my Pre-med advisor telling 
me I was unfit for Med School based on a 
couple of broad questions and a seeming 
disinterest in learning more about me. He 
couldn't seem more uninterested and this 
hurt. However, I was able to connect with 

most of my professors and their willing- 
ness to guide me in the right direction 
was a breath of fresh air. 

Fve met some incredibly nice people here 
and have made some great friends that 
I know will be there for me in the long 
run. They are one of the main reasons 
why I stayed at UMass Dartmouth. Some 
say that you meet your true friends in 
college and I couldn't agree more. My 
friends, "sista's" and "brotha's" have been 
a vital part of this memorable four-year 

From the day I made my first tuition 
payment to the day I moved in. my Dad 
constantly asked me, "Are you sure you 
want to come here?"

offered tons of opportunity for all who

Jason Perry anvils were hooked to my eyelids. Dark 
circles formed around my eyes. School 
Photos projects and reports that should have had 
Ji-iiira Rodrigues my undivided attention had been put on 
the back burner. In the fall of 2004, a 
non-baseball fan could say I didn't have 
my priorities straight. 

Red Sox fans, however, would agree that 
my priorities were in perfect order. 

During the 2004 Red Sox World Series 
run, many afternoon/nights were spent in 
front of my TV in our Cedar Dell South 

apartment. My friends and I were no 
different than everyone else on-campus; 
gallons of beer were consumed, boxes 
of pizza simply obliterated, and all our 
attention was on the Sox. When Keith 
Foulkc and Doug Mientkiewicz recorded 
the final out of the World Series, bringing 
the Red Sox organization their first World 
Scries championship in 86 years, we 
exploded with joyous emotion. A couple 
of us rushed outside, greeted by fellow 
Dell neighbors and Sox fans alike. We all 
hugged, cheered, and treated each other 
like we had been long-time friends, even 

though this our first time ever commu- 
nicating with our neighbors. Some fans 
freely wept with joy on the sidewalk, 
while others proudly hollered "Let's Go 
Red Soxf over and over. Sure, a few 
non-baseball fans gave us funny looks 
as they peered out their room windows, 
wondering what the big deal was, but we 
could have cared less. This was the day 
we had been waiting for; something that 
previous Sox generations of fans never 
had the chance to see. 

After the night quieted down, and the 


riots on-campus were controlled, many of 
us realized the next big step for Red Sox 
Nation: a title defense. We planned on 
repeating the 2004 process once again: 
sleepless nights, neglected homework, and 
rowdy times were in our futures. 

Plans change. 

Not to say that the plans didn't at least 
start like they were supposed to. The Red 
Sox did in fact make it to the playoffs. 
With a match-up against the Chicago 
White Sox, we set our alcohol tolerance 
to high and prepped our voices for some 

serious cheering. UMD and Campus 
Security were prepared as well; banners 
discouraging riot-like behavior and any 
other dangerous celebration acts were 
plastered all over campus. UMD-ALERT 
emails were sent to every single UMass 
student warning about the consequences 
of destructive behavior. That destruc- 
tive behavior never happened. In fact, 
nothing happened at all; the Red Sox 
were swept in the first round. There was 
no game-winning home run, no shutout 
pitching performance, no late-inning 
heroics; they just... lost and pretty 

handily at that. 

Being on-campus felt awkward the next 
day. There was a bitter taste of defeat in 
everyone's mouth and an empty feeling in 
their stomachs. The banners encouraging 
good, clean fun during the playoff run 
were torn down. No other UMD-ALERT 
emails were sent, instead being replaced 
with alerts regarding the library elevator 
shutting down. No one was given the 
opportunity to neglect homework. Sure 
enough, many of those 2004 World

On February 17 1 ' 1 , the Woodland Com- 
mons of UMass Dartmouth was home- 
to a marvelous celebration never before 
seen. Consisting of dining, dancing, and 
historical reflection, the I st Annual Black 
History Month Ball was a tremendous 
success that gave UMD a new and excit-

The night, dedicated to all those who 
have fought so hard for freedom and 
equality, was coordinated by students 
Emmanuel Lyte and Guerline Men-

importance of such a tribute. Emmanuel 
felt that Black History Month and the

all ethnicities. Guerline felt that such an 
evening would allow everyone to share

that the event will become an annual 
tradition. Judging by the turnout, and

of food and sounds of music immediately

But for four entertaining and enlighten-

the Black History Month Ball were able 
to respect, reflect on, and understand the 
importance of the quote that was in the 
event's program: "Without a history, you 
have no future."

As a junior at UMass Dartmouth, Em- 
manuel Lyte has already made a huge 
impact in the community. If you know 
' Manny", you know him as an outgoing 
and determined student, who reacts well 
under pressure, does not get flustered eas- 
ily, and adapts to different situations. How 
does he do it? What made him decide on 
such a busy lifestyle? 

The truth is, he has not always been this 
way. As a freshman, Manny reveals that 
he was very shy and never got out of his 
dorm room. He knew he would have to 
get more involved on campus to enjoy 
the college experience. He did so by first

getting involved with the Unity House; a 
supportive environment for the academic, 
cultural, recreational and social pursuits 
of UMD students of color. "[The Unity 
House] helped me to get around, by 
being involved in the community and 
helping other young people." 

So what does Manny do with all of his 
time now? He is a brother and treasurer 
for the Sigma Phi Rho Fraternity, Inc; a 
community service based organization. 
He also mentors students, who need 
financial aid and runs events such as The 
Annual Black History Month Ball and an 
AIDS benefit that helps the New Bedford 

community. "I really feel an obligation 
to help others and to be a role model." 
Majoring in electrical engineering, he 
has a lot of homework and reading that 
occupies most of his time. On whatever 
spare time he actually has left, Manny 
enjoys playing basketball, cards, stepping, 
and hanging out with friends. 

During the past three years, Manny has 
had many great memorable experiences 
at UMD and has built strong relationships 
with friends, faculty and staff. He admits, 
"I feel as though I can be myself and not 
have to give-in or fit into a certain racial 

Through his community work, Manny 
has become extremely close with the 
faculty and feels as though he is able to 
talk to them easily and comfortably. All 
the people that he has worked with, all 
the people that he has helped, and all the 
people that have helped him are all part 
of the college experience he had hoped 

While he rushes off to the next event he 
has helped plan, Manny offers up some 
words of wisdom for the senior class. "Do 
your best, because that's what people are 
always looking for."

Everyday we are faced ' 
questions: What time am I goingl 
get up? What should I have for lunch? 
Is it okay to wear the same shirt two 
days in a row? Do I really need to go to 
my night class? 

\\ hile we spend most of our time wor- 
rying about small, everyday questions, 
we sometimes overlook the even tougher 
questions in life. To stimulate discussion 
on some of our society's controversial 
topics, the Student Senate. CAB. and 
RHC sponsored three separate install- 

ments of debates under the title, "Sex, 
Drugs, and Rock rf Roll". 

The first of these debates was on 
the topic of drugs, specifically dealing 
with marijuana. Should it be legalized, 
and what are the consequences of such 
a proposition? These questions were 
battled over in a 90-minute exchange 
between Robert Stutman, former head of 
the CIA in New York, and Steve Hager, 
current editor of the immensely popular 
High Times publication. As the two distin- 
guished guests traded statistics, opinions, 

Rock iY Roll 

and experiences in their professions, the 
UMD students in attendance could be 
heard cheering and jeering for both sides 
of their arguments. 

If the topic of drugs isn't controversial 
enough for you, how about a little sex and 
pornography to create some discussion? 
In fact, the debate over mainstream 
pornography became a hot item of inter- 
est at UMD when author/writer Susan 
Cole and one of the most recognizable 
names in the pornography industry, Ron 
Jeremy, met in the campus auditorium. 

Jeremy obviously argued in defense of 
pornography, while Cole was worried that 
pornography perpetuates the way men 
and women think they need to be in sex. 
Despite the fact that most of the students 
in attendance were in Jeremy's corner 
for the debate, both speakers answered 
questions from the audience as best they 
could. However, Jeremy still included an 
innuendo or two into his responses, much 
to the delight of the crowd. 

While pornography may not be an 
issue many worry about, the issue of 

piracy definitely affects a vast majority of 
students at UMD. With the ratio of mp3 
players to college students seemingly one- 
to-one, the illegal downloading and file 
sharing of music files is a new and con- 
troversial issue that has taken on a whole 
new meaning during the past decade. In 
the final debate, UMD students were able 
to listen to the arguments of Tess Taylor, 
president of the National Association 
of Record Industry Professionals, and 
John Perry, former lyrist of The Grateful 
Dead, and now law professor. After the 
heated exchange, most students came 

away from the night with the belief that 
sharing information is a privilege that 
should not be abused, but not restricted 

So in the end, UMD experienced three 
debates, three nights, and Ron Jeremy. 
Taken out of context, it sounds pretty 
dirty, but it really wasn't. Instead, the 
successful debates brought not only enter- 
tainment to the campus, but an awareness 
on relevant issues that, for many, never 
before existed.

Copy When you think of Greek life, movies like 
Sorava Jonel-Branco Animal House and Old School come to 
mind. These movies portray Greek life as 
Photos one streaking prank after another. Well, 
Christina Amelia here at UMass Dartmouth, fraternities 
Simeon Corlezano and sororities that show us that they 

are more than freshman rushes and keg 

On campus there are five fraternities 
and three sororities, seven of which are 
national and one local. The difference 
between a national organization and a 
local one is that a national group belongs 

Greek Life 

The Fraternities 
and Sororities 

to a governing body that creates laws 
and procedures for the organization to 
follow. Local organizations do not have 
these procedures since they do not have 
a governing group, so they create their 
own rules. 

Being a part of a Greek organization is 
a great way to meet new people, form 
lasting friendships, and help the com- 
munity. There are many activities both on 
and off campus that these organizations 
take part in. For example, these groups 
plan events on campus like Greek Week, 

Homecoming, and Spring Fest. Members 
of fraternities and sororities do a lot of 
community service such as philanthropic 
work within the local community of New 
Bedford, including the FCjdney Founda- 
tion, Make A Wish, and Relay for Life. 
They also help raise money to donate to 
homeless shelters in the area. 

Along with these admirable commu- 
nity service contributions, there are also 
traditional events held for members. One 
of which is Phi Sigma Sigma's Sapphire 
Ball, which is a formal dinner held in the 

spring. Another tradition would be the 
Yellow Rose, which is Alpha Sigma Tau's 
ball that happens annually at the end 
of spring. At the Yellow Rose, members 
perform the only ritual that can be seen 
by people who are not part of A.S.T. 
This ritual consists of a candle lighting 
ceremony, which starts with the lighting 
of the national staff, then to alumnus can- 
dles, the oldest class', and so on. When 
all the candles are lit, the flame is then 
extended to all guests. Even when mem- 
bers graduate, they can still participate in 
Greek events such as this. 

Being a part of these organizations is like 
being a member of a second family that 
you can always rely and depend on. For 
most, living the Greek life helps you grow 
as a person and lets you establish connec- 
tions that will last a lifetime. It's a club. ..a 
family. . .and a way of life. 



Copy When he came to the University of 
Kristen Maloof Massachusetts Dartmouth from Rockport, 
MA in 2002, Alex Hale embodied a 
Photos typical freshman; every day consisted of 
Chi-Hang Fung the same old walk back and forth to class, 
just associating with a small group oi 
friends, and not getting involved with any 
campus organizations. That monotonous, 
almost hermit-like, lifestyle soon changed 
when he was introduced to the Phi Kappa 
Theta Fraternity. "I met some members 
of the fraternity and I started hanging out 
with them. I wasn't planning on joining, 
but I met some of the older guys and it 

They [Phi KappaTheta] are my family" 

seemed like a cool idea." 

That "cool idea" eventually evolved into 
the start of something very special for 
Alex. Now the current president of the 
Phi Kappa Theta Fraternity, Alex sees 
Greek life as something that has been 
growing at unprecedented speeds here at 
UMD. "I see [fraternities and sororities] 
getting much bigger. I think we are in a 
good growth period now that the Univer- 
sity is also getting larger. I've seen more 
people interested in joining a fraternity 
than ever before." 

However, Alex warns, "Greek life isn't 
for everyone. When you talk to a person 
you can kind of tell if they belong in your 
organization or another one. It would all 
depend on the person: what they do, their 
personality, everything." Being a member 
is not always about fun, as a strict GPA 
requirement is enforced. 

Even after Alex graduates, he would love 
to see the fraternity maintain its inde- 
pendence from other governing bodies. 
' Many schools have an IFC (Interfraternity 
Council governing body). I think this goes 

above the individual organizations. If I 
was a part of IFC, I wouldn't want to limit 
how [fraternities] operate, especially if 
they are functioning well." 

In between all of his presidential respon- 
sibilities, Alex doesn't waste a second of 
time and keeps very busy. As a proud 
member of the class of 2007, he is cur- 
rently double majoring in management 
information systems and marketing. 

When many students leave for college they 
really don't have any intentions of being 

part of Greek life. To most, joining a 
fraternity is usually just a spur of the mo- 
ment idea. For Alex Hale, that impulsive 
decision to get involved transformed him 
from a typical freshman to a member of 
a group he is proud to belong to. The 
members of Phi Kappa Theta are not just 
his friends - "They are my family." 


The Hard 

Reflecting on 

Copy Doesn't it seem like yesterday that you 
Simeon Cortezano were sitting around on a Thursday night, 
bored with nothing to do, when a bunch 
Photos of your friends swung by your room and 
Simeon Cortezano asked, "Hey! Party at the DeU, you in?" 
Monique Duquette What kind of question was that? Of 

Jejf I 1 bjnicki course you were in! Before the days when 
everyone headed over to the Woodland 
Community for fun and forgetful rimes, 
they were heading over to Cedar Dell. 

Unfortunately, due to wear, tear, and old 
age, the Cedar Dell apartments were 
finally closed down this year. Out of 

the closure of Cedar Dell 

respect, a moment should be taken to re- 
flect upon the times that most of us spent 
in those barnyard funhouses. 

'The Dell" as most people know it, is 
where many of our fondest college 
experiences originated. For some, it was 
where best friends were made. Others 
experienced some incredibly wild times. 
And still, for most of us, we learned about 
independence, responsibility, and most 
importantly, how not to take in stray cats. 

Built during the 70s, the Dell was the 

only place on campus where you were 
guaranteed your own room. The apart- 
ment style residential halls were fully 
equipped with single bedrooms including 
closets, two bathrooms (one for each 
floor), a living room, and a kitchen with 
a working stove and fridge. What more 
could one ask for? 

It always felt like you were living "on your 
own" at the Dell. Granted, you lived with 
five other people, but those people were 
usually your friends that you chose to live 
with. The Dell allowed for a number of 

things that the traditional halls could not 
offer. Aside from a more independent 
living space, students could choose not 
to have a meal plan, and easily cook 
themselves dinner instead of walking to 
the residential cafeteria. 

The Dell wasn't just a place for personal 
independence. It was here where we 
discovered a little more about ourselves, 
and truly became part of the "college 

With the Dell closing its doors on us this 

year, it is clear that a part of us is closing 
with it. However, it is important that we 
do not dwell on what we have lost. In- 
stead we should appreciate what the Dell 
brought us: Our friends, our pets, memo- 
rable parties, intense wiffle ball games in 
the parking lot, Softball games in the field, 
patio barbecues and ultimate frisbee on 
the lawn. Though the Dell will change, 
the memories we hold dear will not. 

Goodbye, Cedar Dell. You will be 
missed. . .but never forgotten.

Student life isn't easy. As the years go on, 
students find the workload piling up to 
astronomical heights. You'd think that 
by the time you're ready to graduate, the 
work would die down and show some 
mercy. That's far from the truth. Between 
the stresses of graduation, mid-terms, 
finals, papers, projeets, and all around 
campus living, most students find them- 
selves uttering an all-to-familiar phrase: 

I need a drink." 

Bui where did the typical UMD student 

go to acquire a tasty beverage to wash 
down the hassles of college? 

If you had a thirst to drink, but didn't 
want to travel off-campus, chances are 
you ended up at the UMD Pub located 
in the heart of the Campus Center. 
While the UMD Pub didn't see much 
action except on Thursday nights, it 
proved to be a simple place where a 
measly ten dollars could have you cruis- 
ing down Tipsy Boulevard in no time. If 
you were a regular attendee, chances are 
you saw a lot of familiar laces. Wasn't 

that the same kid who spilled a pitcher 
of beer on himself from last week? Prob- 
ably. Isn't that the girl who was dancing 
on top of the table from two weeks ago? 
Definitely. The familiarity that the UMD 
Pub provided was its main draw... well, 
that and you could get a Bud Light Draft 
for seventy-five cents. 

Unfortunately, the UMD Pub closed at 
midnight. So for students who wanted 
their nights to extend past the midnight 
hour, they traveled olf-campus in search 
of good times.

Located on Kempton St. in New Bedford, 
The Immigrant was always filled with

Wednesday night. While not the biggest 
place around, it's one of the most lively; 
live bands, relatively cheap drinks, and 
plenty of those "drunken moments". 
Chances are, you brought one of your

going to result in a serious headache 
in the next morning for the birthday 
boy or girl. 

For those looking for more of a club-like 
atmosphere, but didn't want to travel to 
Providence or Boston, Bar 908, located 
on Purchase St. in New Bedford, pro- 
vided just that. While more expensive 
than most bars in the area, 908 found 
itself a popular choice for students look- 
ing to dance the night away. Home to the 
infamous S250 Hot Body Contest that 

many female students participated in, 
908 provided a truly unique atmosphere. 
Students had the choice of sitting back 
and knocking down a few drinks or 
trying their luck on the dance floor in 
hopes that another person would be 
admiring their moves. 

Whether it be Bar 908, Jake's. The 
Catwalk, or any other local bar, you knew 
that if you stepped foot in any one of 
them, you were going to see at least one 
fellow UMD student ordering that first 
drink that would most likely lead to, as 

bizarre as it sounds, a forgettable, but 
unforgettable night. 


Celebration of a New Season: 


Danielle Santoro 

Christina Aucella 
Simeon Cortezano 

Ah, spring. What a beautiful time of year. 
The weather is warmer, the days remain 
luminously longer, and vibrant flowers are 
in bloom all around campus. It's a blissful 
time lor students because it marks the 
conclusion of another successful semester. 
Spring Fest was the perfect way to cel- 
ebrate the arrival of the new season, and 
to let off some stress right before finals. 

The three-day celebration kicked off 
with a barbeque on the Quad Patio. The 
alluring smell of barbecue chicken and 
ribs created a seemingly endless line of 
students: each one of them salivating at 
the chance to grab a free meal. Trays 



and trays of potato salad, hamburgers, 
chips and hot dogs were constantly being- 
brought out to feed the masses. Once out 
of the line, students wasted no time scoff- 
ing down their food-stacked plate. 

As the feeding frenzy continued, neon 
disks soared through the air as games 
of frisbee were played on the grass, 
while others relaxed and listened to the 
outstanding performances by the talents 
of The Big Heavy and Three Feet Short. 
Their loud and addictive music pumped 
up the crowd, inciting screams and proc- 
lamations of love for the band members. 
Day two kicked off in parking lot 7 and 

was a sports fanatic's dream as the Virgin 
College Mega Tour tent made its way to 
UMD, prepping everyone for the Yellow- 
card concert that very night. Decorations 
of famous athletes' jerseys lined a massive 
truck that was home to many sports-re- 
lated activities for students to show their 
skills (or lack thereof) in. It wasn't uncom- 
mon to see a David Ortiz impression 
in one of the batting cages or someone 
proclaiming they had a Curt Schilling- 
like fastball at the fast-pitch station. For 
uninterested in sports-related activities, 
they could try their luck in a "Wheel of 
Chance" sponsored by Dentyne Ice. The 
rapid "Click, click, click" of the wheel 

always created an uproar from the contes- 
tant as they encouraged the wheel to stop 
on that one section that would grant them 
a free Ipod Shuffle. However, the shout- 
ing stopped as the wheel usually halted 
on the section that earned the contestant 
some free Dentyne Ice. But hey, free gum 
is better than nothing. 

The fun and excitement of Spring Fest 
concluded with an outdoor carnival. For 
those in attendance, it was just like being 
a kid again! Students could be seen with 
a snow cone in one hand and a stick 
of cotton candy in the other. Laughter 
dominated the inflatable areas as students 

enjoyed their time jumping on the moon- 
walks and trying to playfully tackle each 
other. Chunks of redJell-O flew through 
the air as two friends wrestled each other 
to the ground in a pool full of the gelatin. 
The dunk tank proved to be a popular 
activity; with the highlight being one 
girl triumphantly dunking her RA in the 
frigid water causing a huge roar of ap- 
proval from everyone watching. Without 
a doubt, the carnival was a resounding 

Spring Fest was a fun weekend for every- 
one on campus and an excellent close to 
the school year. The celebration was filled 
with music, food, games, and even more 
food (did I mention there was a lot of 
food?) Faces were smiling, feet were danc- 
ing, and spirits were at an all-time high. 
What more could you have asked for on 
this wonderful weekend?

Copy For weeks leading up to the evening of 
Kristin Maloof Friday, April 28, 2006, students at IN kiss 
Dartmouth could be heard talking about 
Photos the anticipated appearance of the Virgin 
Jeima Rodrigues College Mega Tour. Posters for the event 
lined most bulletin boards from Group 
six to the Dion building, and hyped the 
arrival of Over It, MAE, and the main 
attraction, Yellowcard. When the time 
finally came for the trio of performers to 
rock the Tripp Athletic Center, hundreds 
of students readied themselves for an 
unforgettable night of music. 

As the multitude of fans, friends, and 
family filed into the already warm gym- 

Mega Tour 

nasium, chants for Yellowcard could be 
heard. It wasn't long until the enthusi- 
asm from the crowd and the eagerness 
of die-hard fans were met by the first 
opening act. Over It. The fast and frantic 
melodies of the band filled the heads of 
the UMD students. Receiving thunderous 
applause, the first opening act proved to 
be entertaining, and a great way to pump 
up an already intense crowd. 

As Over It left the stage, it didn't take 
long before the walls, floors, and ceiling 
were all pounding to the equally excep- 
tional performance by MAE. Standing for 
Multisensory Aesthetic Experience, the 

band displayed a style that was epic and 
full of emotion. People could be heard 
screaming to their friends, and singing 
along to the powerful form. "Someone 
Else's Arms" seemed to be the song that 
was enjoyed the most, and was the final 
performance before the main event... 

Here comes Yellowcard! 

Camera-phones from all over the audi- 
ence Hipped open, while fans flipped out, 
as vocalist Ryan Key began singing the 
first of many super charged Yellowcard 
songs. Violinist Sean Mackin seemed to 
touch every part of the stage in blinding- 

fast speeds, as many in attendance began 
to partake in crowd surfing. Rocking 
harder and faster than anyone before 
them, Yellowcard not only lived up to the 
hype, they surpassed everyone's expecta- 

The music finally slowed to a stop and 
everyone began filing out. Fans exited 
the Tripp Athletic Center exhausted and 
equally entertained by the CAB sponsored 
event. MAE actually stopped to chat with 
some students after the show offering 
up the advice, "Hopefully you're going 
through college and you're learning what 
you want to learn and not what you feel 

like you have to for someone else." 

After listening to those words of wisdom, 
the remaining students left satisfied, with 
many songs and moments to remember 
for a long time. For an adrenaline pump- 
ing, heart pounding good time, there was 
no equal to Virgin's College Mega Tour. 

'Don't ever 
think you have

around the campus quad to help raise 
money for cancer research. When not 
walking, students slept in sleeping bags 
and tents. As serious as the fundraiser 
was, there were still fun side events going 
on; volleyball games in the campus quad,

When Hurricane Katrina struck the 
city of New Orleans, people all over 
the nation hoped that the destruction 
caused from the natural phenomenon 
would be minimum. As we know, this was 
not the case. Vet. in the time of sadness 

and depression, volunteers from all over 
campus took time from their lives to 
travel to the city of jazz to help many to 
rebuild their lives. When asked about her 
experience working with the cleanup in 
New Orleans, Christina Briggs, a Graphic 
Design major, said her initial reaction was 
'shock." That initial shock quickly fueled 
her desire to work even harder to aid in 
the cleanup efforts during her stay. When 
she left, Ms. Briggs said there were feel-

they had helped make progress towards 
the restoration of the great city, and a

Don't ever think you have to go far to 
help someone in need. The members 
of Alpha Sigma Tau got together and 
helped put on a carnival for New Bedford 
middle school students. The carnival 
included a moonwalk, sand-art, and other 
various activities. The students itched 
with anticipation as the school day wound 
down, in the hopes of being at the front 
of the line for the first activity. As one 
person stated, "Both groups were hav-

These are just some examples of 
charitable and random acts of kindness 
showcased by UMD students, faculty, and 
staff. It is in keeping up with this tradi- 
tion that we are able to salute those who 
sacrifice in the name of good, helping- 
others to smile, laugh, rebuild, and above

Blitefield 7 

Copy When Professor Jerold Blitefield, from 
Soraya Jonet-Branco the College of Arts and Sciences, walks 
into the room, you automatically feel 
Photos welcomed. You will find an optimistic, 
CU-Hang Fung sincere, and a genuinely good man who 
loves his job. As a former student, origi- 
ualK from New York, he graduated here 
uiih a Masters in professional writing. 
Blitefield has returned to UMass Dart- 
mouth to continue his love for in writing 
and English. 

When offered the job, Mr. Blitefield 
admits the opportunity was hard to 

resist. "There are so many things about 
the University that I like, which is what 
brought me back here." These things 
include enjoying what he is able to teach, 
the student population, and even UMD's 
wacky architecture. Entering his sixth 
year at UMI), Blitefield remembers the 
great experiences he has had witli both 
colleagues and students, the opportunities 
to create things, and the ability to help 
others move along. 

As an English major, he is able to teach 
and share his passion in writing courses, 
for creative and rhetorical writing, in all 
different levels. Some of his enthusiasm 
also includes fictional writing, music, 
and great cuisine. His genuine nature is 
seen when he discusses his concern for 
humanity and the direction he believes 
it is heading in. Although this can make 

him frustrated and worried, it also gives 
him the motivation to remain positive. By 
sharing his passion with others, he is able 
to give his students his lull attention. 

Blitefield is concerned about his students, 
their lives, and their workload. He makes 
himself available, not just as a teacher, 
but as a companion. Remembering when 
he was a student, it's easy for him to un- 
derstand the difficulties college life brings. 
In return, Blitefield expects that his 
students feel privileged to be in college, 
not just for a grade, but for the chance 
to have the best time of their lives, since 
there is no other time like it. 

Whatever his students have learned 
throughout the years will be an important 
asset to bring with them into the work 
field. In a serious and supportive way. 

he advises the graduating seniors, 
' Don't fret; be adaptive, flexible, 
and willing to learn". 

It is the willingness to learn, and the 
ability to adapt that has made Jerold 
Blitefield an invaluable part of the 
College of Arts and Sciences.

The sound of chatter and socializing fills 
the air as soon as you swing open the 
door to one of the many entrances of 
Group One; home to the College of Arts 
& Sciences. Walking by the orange-tinted 
furniture in one of the spacious lounge 
areas, you observe some students holding 
a few Chemistry books talking with some 
other students clutching onto an Oxford 
Study Bible. This isn't an uncommon 
sight seeing as how the College of Arts 
& Sciences is home to many academic 
majors including, but not limited to; 
philosophy, English, anthropology and 

As you trek on forward, you ascend a 
concrete spiral staircase littered with fliers 
and advertisements for on-campus events 
as you reach the second floor. The smell 
of chicken soup immediately catches your 

senses as it emits from an A La Carte 
stand where students are snatching up 
sandwiches, drinks and cookies before 
their next class. 

Making your way past the long, path-ob- 
structing A La Carte line, phrases like 
' Me gustaba jugar basquetbol" or 
' Guten tag, Frau Fiedler" catch your ear. 
Chances are, you're walking by either 
a Spanish or German class, as students 
who want to brush up on an international 
language do so in the College of Arts 
& Sciences. You peak inside a random 
classroom where attentive (and some 
not so attentive) students are focusing 
on the syllabus changes made by their 
British Literature professor. For those 
students that are dozing off in class, you 
can't blame them as they are likely sitting 
in one of the new reclining, jet-black 

desk\chair combos scattered throughout 
the Group One classrooms. 

'Can I help you?" asks the British Lit- 
erature professor as all eyes shift to your 

Taking that as your cue to leave, you 
proceed to a set of orange double doors 
that aren't being used to their maximum 
potential, as students are only opening up 
one side of the door, creating a major un- 
dergraduate traffic jam. With some fancy 
maneuvering, you get to another set of 
stairs leading you up to the faculty offices. 
You notice that there are many branching 
hallways; each one containing numerous 
offices of faculty members all associated 
with the same major. The communication 
level is high as students and faculty are 
having one-on-one meetings discussing 

topics from grades to tutoring opportuni- 
ties. A faculty members' office door is 
always open for any student to come in 
and talk. 

With your walkthrough of the College of 
Arts & Sciences coming to a close, it sud- 
denly hits you: the key to success here is 
communication. Whether it is with fellow 
students, faculty, or even the employees 
at the A La Carte stands, the only way to 
have a successful stint in the College of 
Arts & Sciences is to simply chat it up. 







Copy Standing at nearly six feet tall with red 
Siddharth Bahl hair, Jan Fairbairn of the College of 
Visual and Performing Arts is not that 
Photos hard to spot. Whoever knows her knows 
Christina Amelia that she is a unique and talented profes- 
Chi-Hang Fung sor, an inspiration to so many. Teaching 
graphic design and typography at UMD 
since 2000, she strives to give her students 
a foundation in the arts as strong as hers. 
Taught by some of the most talented pro- 
fessors in the graphics design field at Yale 
University's Graduate School of Arts and 
Sciences program, Professor Fairbairn is 
an expert in what she does. In every class 
she teaches, Jan Fairbairn tries to share 
all of her knowledge and advice to her 
appreciative students. 

Professor Fairbairn literally lives graphic 
design by staying constantly involved in 
the field. She teaches at the Rhode Island 
School of Design and owns her own 
business, Fairbairn and Co. While these 
different occupations may lead one to 
think that she believes complex is better, 
the opposite is true. She reveals, "The 
minimalist approach to life is best suited 

for me." This can be seen in the way she 
dresses and how some of her projects are 

Tracing her beginnings in design is simple 
as well. Her interest in general arts began 
in high school, when she took a painting 
class. She immediately felt a passion for 
the field, and it was that which guided 
her to success. She advises the senior class 
to "have passion for what you do." More 
specifically, she suggests that all graphic 
design majors "work for really good 
people, and search out companies and 
corporations that are involved in your 
particular branch of design." 

Teaching at UMass has given her an op- 
portunity to work at a school she feels has 
an excellent graphic design program. The 
recognition the school gets at the local 
and national levels are accomplishments 
she and her students are proud of. Profes- 
sor Fairbairn adds, "Most of my students 
have a desire to excel and are motivated 
to achieve their dreams." Her particular 
teaching methods have helped bring out 
the very best a student has to offer. 

Graphic design has and will continue 
to be a large part of her life. A talented 
and brilliant woman, the University of 
Massachusetts Dartmouth is extremely 
fortunate to have her on staff. Showcasing 
focus, dedication, and passion on a daily 
basis, Professor Fairbairn doesn't find it 
hard to come to work everyday. It's that 
very passion that makes Jan Fairbairn 
who she is, both as a professor and as a

Simeon Cortezano laughing, sitting, standing, dancing, sing- 
ing. Constantly on the move (especially 
Photos with those 8 a.m. bus trips). These are 
Christina Briggs just some of the words and phrases that 
Jenna Rodrigues describe the students of the College of 
Visual and Performing Arts (CVPA). 

Some may know them as Art Ed Majors, 
Art History Majors, Graphic Designers, 
and Electronic Imaging Majors. Others 
know them as Ceramics Majors, Photog- 
raphy Majors, Textile Majors, and Metals 
Majors. Then there are those who know 

them as Painting/2D Majors, Scultpure/ 
3D Majors, and Illustration Majors. And, 
of course, there are those who know them 
as the "Group Sixers." 

Either way... 

Everyone has seen them; a crowd of 
students carrying tackle boxes headed in 
the same direction. Everyone has heard 
them; drums and other musical instru- 
ments playing throughout the campus 
air. Everyone knows them; people going 
into Group Six spodess and then coming 
out a mess of charcoal, paint, clay, and 
sweat. Long, tiring, work intense, but very 
rewarding days are the norm. 

The moment you walk into Group Six, 
it's almost as if a giant hand grabs you 
and puts you on a cloud. The feeling is 

so serene and relaxing that you can't help 
but let yourself get lost in your work. You 
are truly surrounded by a constant flow 
of imagination and creativity. However, 
the journey to artistic nirvana is not an 
easy one. 

Let us stop and rewind back to the begin- 
ning of Group Six life. . . 

A typical student's first year consists of 
foundation courses which includes basic 
structural drawing, figure drawing, pre- 
selected studio classes, a 2D workshop, 
and a 3D workshop. These courses help 
students move on to a narrower field of 
expertise and to a specific major that they 
may want to delve further in. 

After a year of foundation courses and 
once they've decided what they want to 

do, the next step is to drive themselves 
as far as they can go. This is the spirit of 
the CVPA: to strive for the next level of 
creative excellence. It's as if the teachers 
and students feed off of each other as 
artists and professionals. 

The highly respected and prestigious Col- 
lege of Visual and Performing Arts is the 
collective body that fills the void of cre- 
ativity and life that would otherwise cease 
to exist in so many. Without it, the dreams 
and thoughts of many would never be 
seen or heard. It is by being a part of the 
CVPA that students can improve their 
work, their minds, and themselves as truly 
brilliant people. 





Copy Growing up in Turkey, Istanbul, Fahri 
Kristen Maloqf Karakaya knows what it takes to work 

through challenges and succeed. Thirty- 
Photos three years ago he came to the United

There he majored in business and man- 
agement. After receiving his bachelor's 
degree, he went to UMass Amherst for 
his master's degree. He finally ended up 
receiving his Ph D at Clemson University. 
In between schools, he had many jobs 

that influenced his decision to become 
a professor. He worked at Benmark 
Corporation for a year and a half after 
he received his B.S., and taught at the 
Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. 
One of his professors had a huge impact 
on his decision. Professor Karakaya didn't 
believe he could become a professor be- 
cause English was not his first language. 
One of his professors helped him make 
the decision and Professor Karakaya is 
still very content with what he is doing. 

The first class that he taught was market- 
ing. "I get satisfaction from seeing the

Through everything, Professor Karakaya 

never gave up. He knew he wanted to 
succeed in life. Throughout his teaching 
career, he's instilled motivation and 
proper work ethic into his students. His 
objective is to prepare students for the 
real world and show them that their 
dreams are attainable. "Never give up. If 
you don't like the job, look for something 
better. There's always a better way of do-

Copy If you walk through Group One and 
Jenna Rodrigues Group Two, you may notice a differ- 
ent group of people. Well groomed and 
Photos seemingly always on a mission, students 
Christina Briggs of the Charlton College of Business 

spend most of their time here. They are 
preparing for the one day where all their 
hard work will finally pay off. The stu- 
dents of the Charlton College of Business 
are not your everyday people, but rather 
individuals who already show signs of 
belonging in the business world whether 
they are an undergraduate or a graduate. 
These students help in creating the 

business world of the future. 

Upon entering Group One or Group 
Two, one will notice that some business 
students are required to dress as if they 
have a real profession in the field of busi- 
ness. In this college, as in the professional 
world, there is no fooling around. Most of 
the time, males can be spotted dressed up 
in a nice pair of slacks, buttoned up shirt 
with a clean-cut collar and a tie. One 
will also notice females either dressed 
in a nice pair of pants or skirt and a 
blouse, complete with fancy shoes. These 
students dress in such a manner to convey 
an image of professionalism whether it's 
their choice, or that of their professors. 
This really becomes apparent when these 
people walk amongst those dressed in 
casual outfits or even pajamas! 

One thing that students of the Charl- 
ton College of Business become highly 
skilled at is learning how to give a great 
professional presentation. Every now and 
then, one will see these classy individuals 
walking about with large business bags, 
laptops, posters, or hand-outs, due to 
the many professional presentations that 
they are assigned. A common trait that 
all these students share is the sheer de- 
termination to learn. It is a trait that one 
naturally attains, and that the Charlton 
College of Business attends to. 

Whether one is a marketing, manage- 
ment information systems, finance, 
management, or accounting major, they 
all graduate with the knowledge that is 
needed in the business world in order to 
succeed. Very wise and knowledgeable 
professors greatly contribute to the devel- 

opment of ones business skills. It is here 
at UMass Dartmouth where the future 
business leaders of the world are created, 
and it is where their lives begin. They are 
the organizers of life, and the leaders of 
the future. They are the next generation 
of professionals who will always have the 
determination and motivation to lead

Copy For over two decades, students from the 
Joshua Sadeck College of Engineering have seen the 

same person enter their classrooms. With 
Photos a white cowboy hat on his head, a laptop 
Chi-Hang Fung in hand, and a set of iPod headphones 
Jason Perry connected to his ears, Richard Upchurch 
gives the computer science department 
a character and credibility that is truly 
unmatched. Since the technology that 
he works with is constantly changing and 
evolving, Professor Upchurch is always 
changing as well. 

Graduating in 1969 from the New Mex- 
ico Institute of Mining and Technology, 
Richard received his bachelor's degree in 
mathematics and then his master's two 
years later. "I worked at a tech college in 
South Carolina as part of their math de- 
partment in the 70's before coming here. 
It was in the fall of '83 when I made my 
way to what was known as SMU." 

As a professor, Mr. Upchurch has taught 
various classes dealing with software 
engineering, social and ethical aspects 
of computing, and human-computer 

interactions. In a world that is becoming 
increasingly dependent on these concepts 
and technologies, computer science stu- 
dents are becoming even more dependent 
on his lessons and experiences. 

With over 20 years of service to UMD, 
Professor Upchurch has become part of 
the foundation of what the College of 
Engineering is about: proficiency and 
efficiency. Some things at UMD have 
remained the same, but as Mr. Upchurch 
points out, many things have not. "There 
are so many new dorms now. The student 
body has really grown tremendously." 

Besides molding the future architects 
of technology, Mr. Upchurch has some 
hobbies that some people may not know 
about. In fact, he is the proud owner 
of a ten-year-old horse that he trained 
himself. With his trusty cowboy hat on, 
Richard goes on calm rides for "stress 
management". Besides riding, Professor 
Upchurch has a passion for music. Show- 
casing his 20 GB iPod, he says, "Classic 
rock and folk music, usually old war pro- 
test songs, already make up half of my 
player." Sometimes he even connects his 
iPod player to the speakers in classrooms 
for a quick song before class. 

Professor Upchurch strongly suggests that 
graduating computer science majors, as 
well as everyone else should continue to 
strive to be well rounded. "There is so 
much competition out there right now. All 
professions require a broad range of skills 
besides those that are taught in textbooks. 
Continue to learn and evolve with the 
changes you will definitely face." 

Those who have had Richard Upchurch 
can come up with many words to describe 
his unique and engaging personality. 
However, if he had to describe himself in 
one word, he laughingly remarked, "That 
word probably can't be printed in the

Electrical and Computer Engineering, 
Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or 
Textile Sciences, the College of Engineer- 
ing offers a lot to its students and the 
surrounding communities. 

If you happen to be a student of this 
college, then you know that you are part 
of either the group of 900 undergradu- 
ate or 200 graduate students. You know 
that work is complex, meaningful, and 
diverse. While you will spend many sleep- 
less nights trying to analyze the results of 
complex algorithms or problems, you are 
surrounded by over 75 of the most quali- 
fied full time professors with degrees from 
many prestigious universities from all over 
the world. 

If you are not a student of this college, 
than you still probably see more than the 
monotonous architecture of the Dion, 
Violet, and Group 2 buildings. Walking 
through these corridors reveals engineer- 
ing students working together in groups, 
writing complex mathematical equations 

on green chalkboards, or parts of code 
for a computer program. Sometimes you 
may even notice a few students taking a 
quick nap on the orange benches, in an 
attempt to recover from 24 hours worth 
of studying. Others can be seen in the 
computer-filled physics labs, measur- 
ing the accuracy of their predictions. 
Engineering students take their work very 
seriously, for in the professional world 
they are working towards, the room for 
error is very small. 

This drive for excellence and efficiency is 
a theme the College of Engineering is all 
about. The US. News and World Report 
ranked the college within the top 50 in 
the country in 2005, and was recognized 
by the same group as the top tier regional 
university in the Northeast. With all of 
the accreditations and accolades, students 

of the college know that they are receiv- 
ing an education that will help them to be 
the very best at what they do. 

Some may think that all work done in this 
college is only about technical specifics. 
This thought is farther from the truth as 
innovative, inventive, and creative think- 
ing is what drives the progress in technol- 
ogy. These students are the dreamers 
of tomorrow, with the skills to bring the 
world to a safer and healthier place. 

So, next time you stop by any of the 
classes or lab sessions involving the Col- 
lege of Engineering, pay close attention. 
You are looking at the future and all the 
possibilities that it holds.

~. Ellen 

Copy Professor Ellen Christian has resided here 
Kristen Maloqf at UMD as part of the College of Nursing 
for the better part of 31 years. Since the 
Photos 80 "s, she has also taken on an enormous 
Lindsey Nygaard role as an advisor to students, helping 
them decide what they want to do with 
the rest of their lives. 

Ellen Christian's desire to be involved 
in the nursing profession has been with 
her since childhood. She started her 
education at Massachusetts General 
Hospital School of Nursing, received her 
bachelor's degree at Boston University, 

and her Master's at the University of 
Colorado in Denver. 

So what made Professor Christian come 
to UMass Dartmouth? It was not only the 
fact that she was moving to this area, but 
also because she believed it would provide 
her with a great opportunity. "I came to 
UMass in the 70's, it was a new school 
and the College of Nursing was only 
three years old. Therefore it really pro- 
vided an opportunity for me to work in a 
young and growing educational system." 

While she is not currently practicing, 
her primary love is nursing. She has had 
enormous experience working as a nurse. 
Her previous jobs included working at a 
pediatric intensive care unit, working on a 
cardiac surgical floor, at a pediatric unit, 
and recently at St. Luke's hospital pedi- 

atric unit. She believes her primary duty 
now is teaching and advising. Before she 
came to UMass, she taught at the Boston's 
Children Hospital and Boston University. 

Why did she choose teaching and advis- 
ing over nursing? She believes that teach- 
ing and advising are extensions of her 
original love. She finds it very satisfying to 
help students make an easy and enjoyable 
transition from high school to college. 
'My favorite part of teaching is when a 
student who has been studying finally sees 
the light, gets it, and says, 'I know what 
I need to do!' and goes ahead and does 
it. Advising is such an important part 
of helping students become confident 

Ellen Christian's life extends far beyond 
the concrete walls of UMD. She sails with 

her husband regularly on Buzzard's Bay. 
She loves to garden and is an avid reader. 
She is even a coordinator of learning 
communities as she works with children 
at a local church. 

Being an advisor and a professor here at 
UMD, Ellen has seen the transitions that 
students make year after year. For the 
graduating class she says, "Graduate and 
use the skills that you have learned here. 
Use the knowledge and the critical think- 
ing to look at your world and decide what 
it is you really want to do. Stay strong 
and make sure not to be discouraged if it 
doesn't happen at first." 




Lindsey Nyggard 

Christina Briggs 

If you have seen a student walking 
around in white or blue scrubs, chances 
are, you're probably close to one of 
UMD's most decorated colleges. These 
students here at UMass, sporting those 
fashionable garments, most likely origi- 
nate from the College of Nursing. It is 
here where many of tomorrow's nurses 
will receive their education, and where 
the future healers of tomorrow begin 
their careers. 

The College of Nursing was established 
in 1969, with Sister Madeleine Clemence 

Vaillot as the first dean of the College. 
During this time, two departments were 
established: the Department of Adult and 
Child Nursing; and the Department of 
Community Nursing. In 1973, The Col- 
lege of Nursing received initial accredita- 
tion of the undergraduate program from 
the National League for Nursing. It has 
been continuously accredited since that 
time, so you know that an excellent edu- 
cation is provided. 

The College of Nursing offers Under- 
graduate, Graduate and RN Studies 
Programs. Students conduct most of their 
studies in the Dion building, which con- 
tains more than just classrooms. State-of- 
the-art labs are available for important re- 
search. In addition there are exam rooms, 
which provide the nursing students with 
opportunities to practice before venturing 

out into the "real world". 

The great thing about the Nursing 
program is that the students are given 
the opportunity to put their knowledge 
and skills to work as soon as the second 
semester of their sophomore year. Each 
student either works with the patients at 
local hospitals such as St. Luke's in New 
Bedford, St. Anne's and Charleton in Fall 
River, or Morton Hospital in Taunton. 
During "clinicals", the nursing students 
are able to step inside the hospital with a 
new purpose: patient care. One-on-one 
contact with patients, care plans, and the 
like become part of a nursing student's 
education in addition to classes back on 

As like all the other college buildings on 
campus, the College of Nursing also has 

its quirks. If you have been inside you can 
definitely tell there are differences from 
other buildings. The smells remind one 
of a hospital. The cleanliness and order 
to the building also resemble that of a 
hospital. One may also notice that there 
are mosdy female staff and students pres- 
ent. Even though it is the 21st century, 
nursing continues to be a field that is still 
dominated by women. 

Despite the College of Nursing being one 
of the smaller colleges on campus, there 
is much going on. The rigorous four-year 
undergraduate program strives to educate 
its students to the highest level possible, 
preparing them for their future careers in 
the field.

Corsair Football 
Scores the 
Extra Point 

Copy In the fall large crowds of students can be 
Joshua Sadeck seen gathering at Cressy Field on many 
crisp Saturday afternoons. As they file 
Photos into silver bleachers that line the home- 
Jason Perry team side of the field, they continue to 

socialize. The chatter gets louder as more 
and more people arrive, and just when it 
seems like conversation is about to hit an 
all-time high, everything goes quiet for 
one moment. 

The UMD Corsairs, in their dark jerseys 
with white numbers, approach the field. 
No more talking. It's game time! 

' And here come the Corsairs!" yells the 
commentator over the home-field side's 
loudspeaker. Immediately, the students 
become electrified, exploding into a 
frenzy of cheers and applause. For 
some, conversations suddenly become 
filled with statistics and predictions for 
the final score of the day's contest. For 
others, their socializing continues as it 
had before. But for all who attend UMD 
football games, a fun and exciting time is 
sure to be had. 

Defense!" urges the opposing team, as the 

football blasts high into the air. Within 
moments, the UMass offense buries their 

Touuuuuuchdown, UMass!" Coaches and 
players on the home team jump up and 
down, congratulating one another, as the 
visiting team regroups to figure out what 
went wrong. 

After a few hours, some students and fac- 
ulty begin to leave Cressy Field, confident 
that the Corsairs will hold onto the lead 
in the final minutes of the game. Some 

go back to their dorms while others stay 
to watch the final seconds on the clock 

Regardless of when the)' leave, the 
atmosphere at Corsair football games is 
remembered long after the season ends. 
For all involved. Corsair football is excit- 
ing, fun, and a perfect way to kick off the 
fall season and the college year.

Copy The ball bouncing furiously down the 
Kristen Maloof court, the cheerleaders performing at half 
time, and the fans dressed in yellow and 
Photos blue. The loudness of a horn blowing, the 
Jen/in Rndrigues chaos of the crowd's screams, the deafen- 
ing "boo's" of a referee's bad call, and the 
rhythm of a coherent chant. These are 
the sights and sounds that can be associ- 
ated with UMD Basketball. 

Basketball is an interesting game by itself, 
but when you get a group of friends to 
go watch either the men's or women's 
basketball games, get ready for an excit-

ing time. Students with painted faces and 
home-team attire pay attention to each 
and every second of a game. Whether it 
is a defensive stop or an offensive play, 
all players and observers become a part 
of the thrill of the game. And during the 
halftime of a men's game, the cheerlead- 
ers gives a performance that usually drops 
all the boys' jaws to the floor! 

People from all over Massachusetts come 
to watch these games, which include 
some of the most important supporters 
to the basketball players: their families. 

Parents come to watch their sons and 
daughters play and to join in cheering on 
UMD to victory. 

Winning isn't everything, but it sure does 
count for something. If either team hap- 
pens to lose, they do it with dignity and 
pride knowing they tried their best and 
represented the University proudly. The 
men's and women's basketball teams work 
extremely hard and the only way to wit- 
ness this is to attend a home game or an 
away game. It's important to show school 
pride and there is no better way to do 

that than to attend the exhilarating games 
of UMass Dartmouth Basketball.

Danielle Santoro brightly, illuminating the diamond. As 
the wind sways the surrounding trees, 
Photos the umpire stands alone on the diamond, 
Christina Aucella brushing the dirt off home plate. The 
Chi-Hang Fung players huddle in the dugout planning 
upcoming strategies while thunderous 
cheers fill the air as the fans anxiously 
await the mighty Corsairs. 

A loud crack of the aluminum bat sounds 
as the ball soars into center field. The

of light brown dirt in the air. The dirt 
slowly settles to the ground as the next 
fearless UMD player steps up to bat. The 
audience is filled with attentive onlookers 
of all ages. These friends, family and 
children excitedly watch the game. One 
young boy admires the players and mim- 
ics them by sliding next to the bleachers, 
covering his pants with bright green grass 

What makes the UMD baseball and soft- 
ball teams so outstanding? It is their sense 
of teamwork. Whether a player is batting 

or fielding, there is always a teammate 
cheering them on. Another wonderful 
aspect is the enormous amount of effort 
everyone puts into each game. Both 
teams display their diligence through 
quick plays, hard hits, and great catches. 
They always give their opponents a tough 
time and are certainly not afraid of get- 
ting their uniforms dirty. 

These teams are always destined for suc- 
cess with their determination, teamwork 
and passion for the game. Representing 
UMD with dignity and poise, the Corsairs 

always put on a great show, and play their 
games like no other.

Cressy Field, home to the UMD Men's 
and Women's Soccer teams, is die site 
of exciting soccer action throughout the 
fall season. These teams are resilient and 
electrifying, always giving the spectators 
an entertaining performance. Fans can 
expect to experience the typical soccer 
atmosphere, with screaming, chanting, 
and the famous "GOOOOALLLL" call. 
Cressy Field is definitely the place to be 
around soccer season. 

These teams consistently display durabil- 
ity as they use their tremendous athletic 

ability to perform on the soccer field. 
After all, soccer is a game of endurance, 
something all these athletes are very 
familiar with. Watching them sprinting 
up and down the field, tolerating the 
physical punishment, makes one realize 
how difficult playing the game of soccer 
can really be. No one does it better than 
our Corsairs! 

Teamwork is important and vital in every 
sport, and that is no different with the 
UMD Soccer teams. Whether it is on-field 
communication of some sort or just read- 

Men and Women of 


ing another player's actions and reacting, 
the Corsair men and women know the 
game and each other very well. Having 
that chemistry on the field is essential for 
the men and women to succeed in each 
game. Soccer is a game where everything 
has to flow together and everyone has to 
perform as one, which these teams display 
on a game-to-game basis. 

Nothing is more exciting than watching 
your team score the winning goal or make 
a spectacular save, and there is plenty of 
that going on at Cressy Field. Feeding off 

of the crowd's energy, the UMD Corsairs 
are fun to watch. UMD soccer has and 
will continue to be a thrilling and fun 
experience for all who participate.

Copy A bright orange ball rolls in front of the 
Jason Perry net. For a second, it settles in peace, the 
moments of being smacked across the 
Photos field by numerous wooden sticks a distant 
Photographies Dept. memory. The second lasts just that when 
a pack of determined UMD Field Hockey 
Corsairs close in, eager to accomplish 
their mission of striking the ball into 
the confines of the heavily guarded net. 
Sticks clash, body checks are thrown, and 
dirt rockets into the air as these tough 
ladies battle for position to score an all- 
important goal. There is complete and 
utter mayhem in front of the net. 

With the clock ticking down, a Corsair 
maneuvers her way out of the pack, 
giving herself enough breathing room to 
line-up a shot. The stick is lifted up. and 
quickly, like a wrecking ball preparing to 
smash through a building... 


An orange blur whisks by a diving goalie, 
coming to an abrupt halt inside the 
net. The goalie, lifting her face off the 
ground, turns to the back of the net. Her 
face is overwhelmed with defeat as she 
sees the orange ball resting comfortably in 
the corner of the goal. Corsairs score! An 
all too familiar phrase heard by one who 
attends any UMD Field Hockey game. 

With the Corsairs celebrating another 
hard-fought goal, the orange ball receives 
another moment of peace. Along with 
this newfound peace, is the satisfaction of 
being placed in the net by the talented, 
hard-working women of the UMD Field 
Hockey team.

Copy Hockey is more than the sounds of the 
Siddharlh Bahl skates against the ice. It is more than 

the big, punishing hits that are delivered 
Photos every other minute. It goes deeper than 
Christina Amelia the slap shots and the glove saves made 
late in the game. It is about teamwork, at 
its fullest, showing how 5 people can work 
together to achieve success for their team. 
That's what the UMD Hockey team is all 

Playing at the Hetland Arena in New 
Bedford, MA, the Corsairs find ways to 
excite the crowd all season long, provid- 
ing the hockey atmosphere that has given 
the sport such a beloved fan base. Hard 
hitting, intense action is guaranteed as 
UMD battles opposing schools on the ice. 
Fast-paced play and determination are 
always on the Corsairs' minds as they 
throw their bodies around the ice, trying 

UMD Corsairs Keep 
the Goals Coming 

to guide the puck to the back of their 
opponents' net. 

The crowd becomes an integral part 
of the UMD hockey games, helping the 
Corsairs keep the tempo up. They are 
consistently involved, adding another fun 
aspect to the event. You don't only get 
great, electrifying hockey action, but you 
get to have a lot of fun as well. Whether 
it be cheering on the Corsairs during a 
power play or rooting them on during a 
key defensive moment, it's not hard to 
find a way to support UMD. 

Make no mistake about it - UMD hockey 
is for real! The students who attend their 
games might witness the next game-win- 
ning goal or the next shutout posted 
by their standout goalies. One thing is 
certain - you will always be in for some 

exhilarating and thrilling hockey by one 
of the hardest working teams in the 
ECAC. During the winter season, UMD 
hockey takes over campus and delivers on 
the power play!

UMass Volleyball 
Serves Up an Ace 


It's a familiar sound when you attend 
UMD Women's Volleyball games. These 
great ladies know the game, and they 
know it well. While the white jerseys and 
spandcx shorts may be a bit distracting 
for some viewers, their athleticism and 
teamwork are what truly grabs the atten- 
tion of all in attendance. 

To those less schooled in the game, vol- 
leyball is a lot more physically demanding 
than it may look. The six players on the 
floor are continually moving forward, 
backward, and side-to-side. The scuffing 
of the court can always be heard during 
intense match-tips. These players are 
always jumping and diving, sometimes 
without regard of their own bodies, to 
keep the ball in volley. 

Communicating as if one entity, the UMD 
Women's Volleyball team is always well 
organized. Disregarding the previous 
play, the noise from the crowd, and the 
glares from their opponents, these women 
are always focused. Lots of communica- 
tion and encouragement are continually 
present during play. All members perform 
serves, volleys, sets, and spikes during 
their rotations, proving everyone is quite 
able at several skills. 

If you have ever attended these games, 
you know of the excitement that fills 
your senses. Whether it be the nature of 
the game, the maddening suspense in an 
approaching spike, or the pure enjoyment 
of watching these women work as one, 
UMD Women's Volleyball serves up a 
great time.

Cross Country 

Races On 

Copy/Photos The anticipation of yet another race day 
Lindsay Nyggard brings feelings of eagerness, nervousness, 
and excitement that rush up and down 
your spine. Your summer and seasonal 
training is about to be tested both men- 
tally and physically 

Ready... Set... Bang! 

The gun blasts and you explode out of 
the box at the start line. You are now 
on your way towards a grueling five to 
eight-kilometer run. How are those legs 
feeling now? 

For the L'MD Men's and Women's Cross 
Country teams, this is only part of what 
a race day may be like. Competitions, 
called "Meets", take place weekly, rain or 
shine. Each season begins with the left- 
over mugginess of summer, and finishes 

with an unwelcome blast of cold weather. 
Time to get those gloves and snazzy run- 
ning tights out of the closet! 

This sport is unique compared to others 
because it is an individual and team 
competition. Besides battling to beat a 
personal best race time, runners must be 
ever ready for that opponent breathing 
heavily down their neck. As your legs 
and chest burn, you must remember that 
you're stronger. You want it more. Never 
fall under the pressure. Are those legs 
still fine? 

Running for UMD's Cross Country team 
is an adventure that isn't only about run- 
ning. It's about working with a diverse 
group of people to create a powerful 
bond and support system, where training 
and racing are only half the experience. 
'Run for fun?" Of course!

Every movie has that final climatic moment 
that defines the purpose of the story. Every 
movie has that one scene that establishes 
the connection between that purpose and 
the members of the cast. For those of you 
that take the time to stop, rewind, and relive 
your college lives. Commencement 2006 will 
always be the grand finale that showed you 
the purpose of your journey through UMass 

Yet, when you look back on this joyous 
ceremony, you may not remember all of 
the specifics that made up the day. You may 
forget what the red, white, and blue chairs 
that lined inside the Vietnam Veterans Peace 
Memorial Amphitheater looked like. You 
may forget about the sweltering heat that 
built up under your cap and gown during 
that bright cloudless day or the content of the 
exercises. Commencement's importance was 
not defined by its content, but rather what 
the ceremony marked: the end of one epic, 
and the beginning of another. 

On this day, 1,387 of you from the ages of 20 
to 82 stood together to witness firsthand what 
four years of perseverance, dedication, and a 
little partying, could culminate into: the high 
distinction of becoming forever known as a 
college graduate. Over 3,000 friends, family, 
and colleagues watched the proceedings with 
great pride and admiration: applauding and 
shouting out the names of their loved ones. 
The audience was a crucial element of the 
overall emotional impact that the ceremony 

Commencement 2006 marked your emer- 
gence onto the real world, and like in your 
freshmen year, the start of something exciting 
and new. It was where you said one final 
good bye to UMass Dartmouth, and returned 
back to your future stronger, smarter, and 






We hope you never lose your sense of wonder. . . you get your fill to eat. 

But always keep that hunger. May you never take one single breath for granted... God 

forbid love ever leave you empty handed. We hope you still feel small when you stand by 

the ocean. . .whenever one door closes, we hope one more opens. Promise us you'll give 

fate a fighting chance and when you get the choice to sit it out or dance we hope you 


We hope you never fear those mountains in the distance. . .never settle for the path of 
least resistance. Living might mean taking chances but they're worth taking. Loving 
might be a mistake but it's worth making. Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter. 
When you come close to selling out reconsider. Give the heavens above more than just a 
passing glance and when you get the choice to sit it out or dance we hope you dance. 

We hope you still feel small when you stand by the ocean. Whenever one door closes, we 
hope one more opens. Promise us you'll give faith a fighting chance, and when you get 
the choice to sit it out or dance, dance!

' That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much: who has gained the respect 
of intelligent men and the love of children; who has filled the niche and accomplished his task; who 
leaves the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued 
soul; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best 
in other and gave the best he had."

Behind the Scenes: 




To the staff of the 2006 Scrimshaw 

Looking back on the 2005-2006 academic 
year, I can't help but be proud of how well 
we all worked together. You all are the sole 
reason that running this organization has 
been relatively stress free and I can't thank 
you all enough for that. 

All of you possess fantastic character 
traits: reliability, commitment, and 
sacrifice, just to name a few, that will lead 
to great things in your lives. I know you 
have all sacrificed things at one point or 
another for the sake of this organization, 
and that willingness to sacrifice means 
a lot to me. It speaks volumes about all 
of you and you should all feel a sense of 
pride because of it. 

More importantly, I am glad we have 
all become friends and have such good, 
personable relationships with one another. 
Team chemistry is something that you 
can't teach in a workshop: it takes time 
and commitment from every single mem- 
ber of the team to help create that lasting 
chemistry. Needless to say I feel we have 

I look forward to doing this again with you 
all next year. 

Thank you.
