Letter from the Editor 
Jason Perry 



To the Graduating Class of 2008, 



Like most of you, 2008 will mark my final year at the Uni- 
versity of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Looking back, I spent 
a fair amount time immersed in many facets of the college 
lifestyle. Burying my nose in textbooks, stressing over final 
projects, leading an efficient student organization, partying 
with manipulative friends like Jack Daniels and Jim Beam. 

I've made great decisions and I've made terrible ones. I've 
established long-term friendships as easily as I've burned 
bridges. Skipping class, failing mid-terms. Writing a paper 
until 3am, making the Dean's List. The sun has shined 
through my dorm room window as frequently as the clouds 
painted it black. 

But within every high, every low, comes valuable know- 
ledge. It's wisdom you can't acquire during a PowerPoint 
presentation or lecture. No teacher can explain it during 
his office hours. 

Reflect on your own college career. Within every mistake, 
every success, you experienced personal growth. Whether it 
was within the concrete walls of UMD or at a friend's apart- 
ment, each moment changed not only your outlook on life, 
but your entire being. Sometimes the change was blatantly 
obvious. Other times it was subtle. 

Your future is unpredictable. But whatever lies ahead, there 
will be a life-altering experience within. Embrace it because 
it'll help you discover who you really are. 

Best of luck to you all and congratulations on your accom- 
plishments. 



Sincerely, 




Jason Perry

Located approximately 60 miles south of Boston and 

30 miles east of Providence, the Dartmouth area had plenty 

to do without the fast paced rush and congestive traffic 

of a big city. With a population of over 31,000 Dartmouth, 

Massachusetts is home to its own mall, driving range, 

and a ton of great restaurants. 

Driving along Route 6 led you to the Dartmouth Mall, 
where all your favorite stores including Hollister, Old Navy, 
and Aeropostale were found. After a day of shopping, 
the next logical step was to sit back and relax at one of the 
many local restaurants. Whether you were in the mood 
for Italian cuisine or some good ol' fashioned BBQ, Route 6 
had you covered with an assortment of restaurants includ- 
ing Not Your Average Joe's, TGI Friday's, and Olive Garden. 

For the daredevil windsurfers or beach bums, both Goose- 
berry Island and Horseneck Beach in Westport, was a good 
place to catch some waves and work on your tan. Even 
during the cool winter days, Horseneck Beach was a haven 
for relaxation. 

Going east down Route 6 took you to New Bedford, one 
of the most historically rich cities in Massachusetts. The 
New Bedford Whaling Museum allowed for exploration of 
the city's well-documented impact on the whaling indus- 
try. But New Bedford offered more than just history lessons. 
Battling the towering walls of Carabiner's Indoor Climb- 
ing — one of the world's largest indoor rock climbing venues — 
or catching the latest film release at Flagship Cinemas were 
just some of the fun pastimes found in New Bedford. Let's not 
forget the other neighboring city, Fall River, home of Battle- 
ship Cove's awe-inspiring scenery. 

If you were looking for something to do around the 
Dartmouth area, you didn't need to travel far. There was some- 
thing for everyone right in the area to feed that shopaholic, 
beach bum, or even die-hard history buff in you.

Remember when the most important decision 
was which bar to attend on a thursday night and 
who was the designated driver? 



The long nights required to memorize all that information 
on your fake ID were history. With a shiny new (legal) 
license, the nightlife of the surrounding SouthCoast was 
yours for the taking. 

Living at UMD there were plenty of nightlife options to 
keep things fun and exciting: all at just a short cab ride away. 
Several local clubs and bars like Bar 908, The Catwalk, and 
Jakes, found UMD students drinking their cares away and 
looking for some plain of fun. 

No matter what bar you were at, it was the same protocol. 
Groups of friends eagerly ran up to the bar door to quickly 
get the okay from the bouncer and then hurried inside. 
One friend usually grabbed a table while the others went to 
the bar to get drinks. Not before long the lines around 
the bar filled up while the bartenders worked their magic. 



With drinks in their system, people made their way to the 
dance floor to celebrate the night with the irresistible beat 
of the music. It was pretty hard to resist singing the lyrics of 
Pour Some Sugar On Me by Def Leppard. On other nights, 
televisions tuned to sports, attracting a mob of people who 
rooted for their favorite team. It was like watching the 
game in one giant living room, with fans breathing down 
your neck to get as close to the action as possible. 

As the night continued, the party kept growing as friends 
bumped into old acquaintances and shared memories 
over drinks. The bars were the hot spots to be any night of 
the week. It was a guaranteed fun time and you could 
always count on the bar to be packed with people anxiously 
relieving themselves from life's stresses.

The evolution of our campus: so much has 
changed and so much will continue to change 
even after we leave. 



Danielle Santoro 
Paige Bennett-Bonn 



Sometimes we get so caught up in our lives that we don't 
realize the changes happening around us. UMD recently ex- 
panded the student community into the SouthCoast. The 
Star Store and the Advancedd Technology and Manufactoring 
Center is where a good portion of students go at some point 
during their time at UMD. One of the most noticeable changes 
that occurred was the expansion of buildings on-campus. 
The Woodland Community houses over 1200 students and 
its apartment style set up was a big change from the tradit- 
ional dorms. Cedar Dell South also reopened to students after 
undergoing extensive renovations. These new dormitories 
defined the new independent college student by giving them 
more freedom and options. But, when you needed a break 
from cooking, there were a number of dining halls at your 



disposal. Sunset/Commuter Cafe, Sky Ranch, Birch Grill, 
and Jazzman's Cafe were new eateries found on campus with 
plenty more in the works. Before, the only place available 
was Res Hall and if you weren't there by 6:45 PM, you were 
ordering take out that night. 

Even the new changes to Res Cafe from a cafeteria to a res- 
taurant style service, with the food being prepared in front of 
you at different stations, was done to satisfy students wishes. 
With all students having very busy lives, the director of Cam- 
pus Services, Jeff Augustine, realized it was time to create places 
to eat on campus that operated at a broader range of hours. 
These food services allowed students to grab food on the go or 
to relax with their friends as if they were at a restaurant.

Changing times also comes with changes in technology. 
Signing up tor classes was such a hassle, waiting in line to 
speak with an advisor and pick your classes for the upcoming 
semester. Wirh the creation of COIN, students were able 
to access all the information about grades, classes, enroll- 
ment, and financial aspects, all from one website. Students 
anywhere from anywhere in the world accessed COIN, 
which was very convenient for foreign exchange students 
or studying abroad programs. Sure, COIN had its faults 
(searching for available classes was a pain), but the service 
marked just another step forward for UMD and to the 
every day growth in our lives. 





UMD Folklore: 

Deciphering fact from fiction: If you think some of the rumors you've heard about 
your friends are outrageous, you should hear the ones about our campus. 



Courtney Nunes 
Yearbook Archives 



What if one of your friends cold you there were secret 
underground tunnels on campus or that there were spiraJ- 
ing staircases that lead to the parking spaces on the roof? 
Would you believe them? Okay, so it might be pushing it 
a little, and by then you might start asking yourself if 
they've had one too many. Believe it or not these are just 
a few of the myths and legends spreading throughout 
the campus of UMD. 

Among the crazy stories is the tale of wacky, Satanist 
architect Paul Rudolph. Rumor has it that Rudolph com- 
mitted suicide by jumping from the bell tower, but in 
fact it wascancer that took his life. While it is said that an 
overhead view of the campus will reveal that the build- 
ings create a pentagram, this is about as true as the story of 
the suicidal architect. There is no pentagram visible from 
above, and contrary to popular belief, the benches were not 
made to represent the number 666, but rather seashells. 

As for those of you who've ever seen A Clockwork Orange 
and believe the school's architecture was designed after the 
mental institution in the film — it's not. The buildings 



were actually based on the style known as Brutalism, which 
usually consists of striking, repetitive, angular geometries. 
Rudolph wanted to distinguish the campus from the outside 
world while still providing a social environment. One thing 
you might have noticed were the relatively narrow stairs, cre- 
ated in order to slow people down and allow them to appreci- 
ate the campus. Also, the concrete and large windows add 
to the feeling of being outdoors while still inside. 

Because a state educational television network was original- 
ly planned for the campus, requiring a transmitter or perhaps 
even underground channels for coaxial cable, some believe 
that the campus contains walkable network of tunnels. These 
tunnels are said to connect the freshman buildings to the 
academic ones. So where exactly were these tunnels while you 
were trudging your way through rain, sleet, and snow, you 
might ask?

Landmarks 



Why are they here?

As you lied in bed and slowly opened your eyes, you lean- 
ed over to check the time, and realized you had overslept. 
Class was to start in five minutes. You threw on a sweat- 
shirt, grabbed a notebook, and ran out the door. Walking 
up to Ring Road, you impatiently waited for a line of cars 
to pass thinking, "Why couldn't the road go through cam- 
pus instead of around it? "As traffic lightened, you quickly 
walked along Centennial Way wondering, "Why exactly is 
it called Centennial Way anyway?" You took rushed steps 
to Group I, and as you walked into class you could hear the 
tower's distant chime. You made it just in time. 

Between Ring Road, Centennial Way, and the campanile; 
there were things that students generally took for granted, 
when in fact there was actually a lot of thought put into 
the design of the campus for the students. Ring Road was 
part of architect Paul Rudolph's master plan at work. He 
intended the inner campus to be for pedestrians only, and 
believed that having cars pass through there would dehu- 
manize the space. Rudolph thought the idea of keeping cars 
separate from the campus was very important and attempt- 
ed to keep the parking lots out of view. 



The campanile, otherwise known as The Tower, was com- 
pleted in 1972 and also critical to Rudolph's architectural 
plan. It was to be a focal point of interest, a pivot point 
to guide the eye around the walkways that branched off 
from the tower. This spiral effect would then pull your 
attention to Cedar Dell Pond. In this way, the campanile 
served as a visual anchor which allowed people to stop 
and appreciate the beauty of the pond while going about 
their busy schedules. 

Traveling back and forth across Centennial Way became 
part of an everyday routine for many residential students. 
The road, which branched off from the Residence Halls 
and led up to the Campus Center, was not actually named 
until 1995 when the university celebrated its centennial 
anniversary. Like the campanile and Ring Road, Centennial 
Way was a part of campus that was often passed by without 
students seeing the true purpose behind them.

Toothbrush? Check! Mini-fridge? Check! Suitcase 
with clothes? Check! 

If only it was that easy. Whether you were a freshman or 
a returning resident, hassles of move-in weekend were the 
same for everyone. For the 2007-2008 year, UMD welcomed 
the largest class of incoming freshman ever, along with its 
returning students. On September IST-2ND, students entered 
their new homes- away-from home, whether it was the worn- 
down freshman halls, the Woodland apartments, or the 
infamous (and renovated) Cedar Dell South. 

Now no one said that the glorious days of college consisted of 
waiting for hours in the school's parking lots, lugging around 
televisions or fridges, and unpacking your things, just to find 
out you have an electric problem in your room! Sometimes 
move-in weekend left students annoyed and frustrated rather 
than reminding them of all the excitement to come at UMD. 

Move-in weekend symbolized many different things for 
many people. For freshmen, move-in weekend was a new and 
exciting journey. For sophomores and juniors, it was a the 
expected routine each time the month of September rolled 
around. However, for seniors it marked the beginning of the 
end with the countdown to graduation officially underway. 




No matter what year you were though, you expected many 
phone calls from a worried mom or dad who just couldn't 
bear to see their baby leave. 

The days of move-in weekend were filled with chaos, 
new roommates, and tearful farewells (from the parents, 
of course!) But that kind of craziness defined the 
college experience, right?

Welcome 

entertainment that only UMD could provide

After you finished unpacking and completely sanitizing your gathered in the auditorium, awaiting comedians Jo Koy and 
dorm room, you probably wondered what there was to do Dan Ahdoot. Both comedians had everyone rolling in the seats 



around campus? 

Well, thanks to CAB, your first week at UMD was packed with 
fun activities to keep you out of your dorm room. 

During September 3-12, Welcome Week kept students from 
getting homesick or feeling overwhelmed by their workload. 
There was a different event going on everyday, which was sure 
to please everyone and a great way to start the academic year. 
The week started with students filing into a shuttle headed for 
Horseneck Beach, where they spent the day with the sun in 
their faces and the sand in between their toes. The following 
days were packed with vendor fairs and student organization 
general interest meetings: a sure way to meet new people and 
get involved on-campus. 

On the next night, students brought their blankets and sweat- 
shirts to the amphitheater, where they were treated to a free 
screening of the popular comedy, Knocked Up. Students then 



with laughter at their hilarious antics and ridiculous experiences. 

The most memorable event of them all, though, was MTV 
Real World's Davis and Collie. The Denver castmates visited 
UMD to talk with students about a variety of issues from 
Hurricane Katrina to binge drinking to sex. Naturally, they also 
discussed all the juicy details from the show that kept all of us 
glued to our television screens. 

It's tough adjusting to a new environment, but with the help 
of CAB and Welcome Week, the academic year started with 
a sense of comfort and got everyone involved. 

Plus it proved that, yes, there was something to do on-campus.

On October 6, 2007, Lisa Tiger visited UMD as a motiva- 
tional speaker for the 6th Annual AIDS Benefit put on by 
the brothers and Rho Rhoses of Sigma Phi Rho. Sigma Phi 
Rho started this annual tradition in order to promote AIDS 
awareness and to relay the importance of taking precautions 
to prevent its spread. 

When Ms Tiger stood nervously on stage and announced that 
she had tested positive for HIV, the crowd fell to a hushed 
silence. Shocked faces listened intently to her compelling story 
of coping with this potentially fatal disease. 

Hosting the benefit was Uptown Kevin Brown, a comedian 
from NBC's 30 Rock, and former brother of Sigma Phi Rho 



Sigma Phi Rho's Annual AIDS Benefit: Taking 
time out to discover some of the real dangers 
going on in our community. 



Incorporated. Adding lots of laughs to the show, and encour- 
aging the audience to have a good time, Kevin Brown also 
discussed with the crowd about the prevention of HIV, and 
the seriousness of the disease. 

While Kevin Brown took care of the comedy for the night, 
UMD students also took part in the show through a mixture 
of vocals, raps, dances and other forms of expressive art. The 
crowd was awed by an assortment of Latino, Cape Verdean, 
and African performances that focused on hope, respect, and 
nobility. Towards the end of the night, the brothers of 
Sigma Phi Rho closed the show by performing a step dance 
on stage. Members of Sigma Phi Rho were on their feet, as 
the packed auditorium was enlivened. The crowd was 




screaming, music was bursting through the speakers, and the 
energy was exhilarating. "Rho is deep in my soul! "sang out 
the brothers as more members of the fraternity began jump- 
ing up onto the stage to join them. 

The benefit proved to be a success, not only by means of 
entertainment, but also by relaying an important message. 
It definitely put into perspective the consequences of 
one's actions and everybody left that night more informed 
about HIV/AIDS.

Did you ever get in trouble for stomping angrily 
up the stairs when you were a kid? 

Remember how you trudged along, banging each foot down 
with force and emotion, the sound echoing off the walls 
like thunder? Well, as one of the latest dance crazes of the 
20TH century, Step Afrika has introduced what they call 
Stepping to nations around the globe. They have performed 
everywhere from DC to South Africa, London to Brazil, 
and now here at the UMD. 

Stepping was created by African American college students 
of fraternities and sororities in the early 1900s. As part of 
the pledging process, students discovered the secrets and his- 
tory of the organization, while also learning how to follow 
their big brothers and sisters in step. While stepping is com- 
monly combined with Mozambique music or Brazilian 



drum core, Step Afrika also blends this unique dance tradi- 
tion with African American spirituals. 

The screen behind the dancers illuminated the otherwise 
dark stage with blue, red, and orange lights, as the black 
silhouettes came across the stage. Stomping in sync, hitting 
their hands off their arms, chest, and legs, it's like tap 
dancing without tap shoes, as the members of Step Afrika 
use their body as an instrument. They jumped up and 
down, landing on the wooden floor with a thud. Kicking 
their legs up in the air, clapping their hands under their 
legs, and spinning in circles the team gives the crowd an 
electrifying jolt. It was fast-paced, energetic, and filled 
with passion. 




At one point in the show, nine volunteers from the audience 
were chosen to go up on stage and learn first hand what 
stepping was all about. They got a few laughs from the audi- 
ence, as they stomped their feet, a bit uncoordinated, and 
learned the moves of stepping. 

Stepping isn't just about the dance moves though. Director 
of Step Afrika, Brian Williams said that the three build- 
ing blocks of stepping are teamwork, commitment, and 
discipline. Stepping is a way to build character. Step Afrika 
ended the show with a crowd cheering performance 
and left with a phrase to remember. "Just finish," the team 
told the crowd, "whatever it is."

When UMD's past and present students joined to 
celebrate the University that attributed to all their 
college memories.

Friday, October 19TH through Sunday, October 21ST was 
an emotional weekend to no one's surprise. Young UMD 
Alumni from the class of 2007 cherished the opportunity 
to catch up with friends as hugs and tears of joy were all 
too common at Friday's Young UMass Dartmouth Alumni 
& Zero Year Reunion Pub night. It was a throwback night 
to the days when they shared a few drinks with many great 
friends. Even the torrential rain couldn't wash away every- 
one's jovial spirits, but it managed to leave more than a few 
alumni with some wet shoes and frizzled hair. 

Homecoming 2007 was more than just rekindling old 
friendships — it allowed UMD the opportunity to put some 
of its talented students on display. Saturday's Homecoming 



Day Parade showed off current UMD students' creativity 
as vibrant UMD-inspired floats circled Ring Road en route to 
Cressy Field: the central point of everything Homecoming 
2007. Students of then and now mingled once again, this time 
underneath the Homecoming Day BBQ & Reunion tent. 
Their chatter was drowned out at times due to ferocious roars 
of happiness emitted by the fans that watched the UMD 
football Corsairs entrenched in battle with Nichols College. 

However, halftime at the game brought out cheers of a new 
kind — adulation that recognized the crowning of royalty. 

It's a tough road to travel for a hopeful UMD king and queen. 
Candidates spent the previous week pitted against other

potential candidates in such outrageous (and at time em- 
barrassing) events like pancake tossing, clothes-swapping 
relays, and an old-fashioned tug-of-war. But Homecoming 
2007 winners Jon Gillen and Erin Dacey pushed out ahead 
of the pack and earned their crowns. Fellow competitors 
and friends applauded Jon and Erin's victory, to which they 
both responded with radiant smiles. 

When the banners and tents came down on Sunday, it was 
the first sign that Homecoming 2007 was at its end. Heartfelt 
goodbyes to old friends filled up a majority of everyone's day. 
But there was a silver lining within each minute that passed: it 
was one minute closer to the next Homecoming; when the 
festivities will happen again.

Oh what a night! The drinks were cheap, the 
beers were cold, and the music was good. 

It's Thursday night and crowds of students are seen following 
the sounds of music coming from the Campus Center. On- 
lookers intrigued by this sight, begin to see what all the fuss is 
about. Students are lining up to get into the UMD Pub! 

The UMD Pub typically had a line of students awaiting ad- 
mission, hoping they would make it in before the Pub 
reached full capacity. Friends came together to grab drinks 
and have a little fun after a hectic week. Some chose to 
relax by the bar and socialize, while others preferred to dance. 

On occasion, the UMD Pub put on a special Pub Night to 
raise money for an organization. But no matter the occasion, 
the Pub was always taken over by dancing. Students moved 




the part)' in front of UMass Pass to make room for everyone. 
The DJ always played the top hits and eagerly took requests 
from students to keep the energy high. Girls rushed out on the 
dance floor, grabbing their friends on the way to dance to 
their favorite song. The music was catchy and upbeat with 
most singing along as they celebrated the night. 

The best part about the Pub was not worrying about who was 
going to be the designated driver to take you home because 
the DartVan was always waiting for you outside the Pub doors. 
A UMD Pub experience was usually memorable and signified 
another exciting time with friends at UMD.

Colorful lights, traditional music and enthusiastic faces 
enhanced the atmosphere as students gathered into the 
auditorium. This year, UMD hosted their first Diwali Night, 
otherwise known as the Festival of Lights. This celebration 
is famous in the Indian and Hindu cultures, and while many 
beliefs have formed over the years, the main focus is the 
triumph of good over evil within one's self. 

The auditorium was lit up in brilliant colors reflecting from 
the patterns on the walls and from the colorful silks worn by 
the participants. People who participated wore traditional 
clothing and performed dance routines. These dances varied 
from jumping over bamboo to a Justin Timberlake skit. 
However, the night didn't stop there, at the conclusion of the 
show a buffet was provided serving traditional Indian dishes — 
a nice break from Res burgers and fries! 

Most people know very little about other cultures other 
than their own. Thankfully, the night began with a narrator 
giving the audience a brief history of India and places to 
go if you're interested in visiting. This was a fascinating way 
for people to learn a different culture since our school is ex- 
tremely diverse. Students need a visual way to gain knowledge 
and appreciation for other cultures other than reading it 
from a textbook, so what better way than seeing it first-hand?

All the stress is worth it when the curtain drops 
and these students take their final bows. 

The UMD Theatre Company celebrated their 40TH anniver- 
sary this past year. Originally run by the infamous Angus 
Bailey and launched in 1967, the company has managed to 
stay successful for all these years. After Bailey's death, it be- 
came a student run organization. The cast have always found 
themselves very busy, whether it was planning the next play 
or setting up for the show they were currently working on. 
They worked long hours, spending most of their time in 
the Theatre Co. office where there was always something 
going on. 

As you walked into the office of the Theatre Co., your eyes 
were drawn to all of the bright colors of the costumes hang- 
ing up and pieces of the set, some of which were made by 



the students. UMD senior Retha Charette has been in the 
theatre company since her freshman year. She immediate- 
ly fell in love with acting and the cast. Junior year she be- 
came the company's manager and since then has only made 
progress taking the place as productive manager this year. 
Retha had mentioned that the whole experience of working 
with the theatre company was the most stressful but the best 
part of her day. She has said it was all worth it at the end 
when the cast take their last bows as the audience applauses. 

With an outstanding number of 40 members, this company 
was fortunate to have many helping hands on and off 
stage. They performed an extensive list of plays including 
Urinetown: The Musical, The Diary of Anne Frank, and

Sophecles' Electra. There were eight cast members for The 
Laramie Project and thirteen for Charlie Brown, both plays 
were very different from each other. This was a goal for the 
company, to put on two completely opposite performances, 
with Charlie Brown being upbeat and fun, while having The 
Laramie Project, a more serious and powerful performance 
intended to raise awareness. As much as the cast wanted all 
of the stress and madness of putting together the plays to 
end, they would have done it again in a heartbeat!

Hosted by Miss UMD 2006 Joanna/0/0 Hobin and Dajaun 
Owens, Miss UMD 2007 put some of UMD's most talented 
ladies on display, all striving for the coveted crown and sash. 

One by one the girls came out and introduced themselves, 
stating their majors and extracurricular activities. Eventu- 
ally, the show progressed to the talent section. Talents varied 
from an American -W0/ audition, to a portrayal of Dancing 
with the Stars, to even a skit from Saturday Night Live. But the 
entertainment for the night didn't stop there, as the brothers 
of Sigma Phi Rho wowed the crowd with a step performance 
during intermission. 

Afterwards, dressed to impress, the girls got to show off their 

stylish gowns as part of the formal wear category. With 

the spotlight daunting and the pressure on each girl, they were 

then tested with a little Q&A. As the competition came 

to an end, the fate of the girls lay in the hands of the judges. 

Members of the audience once again called out to their 



The crowd burst into applause as Shelagh was awarded the sash 
and crown. She graciously thanked her sorority sisters and all 
of the other contestants as the crowd cheered ecstatically. With 
Miss UMD crowned for at least another year, one couldn't 
help but wonder who would contend for the crown in 2008.

John Oliver:

America: love it or mock it. 



In a time when George Bush's eight year reign was finally 
coming to a close, the war in Iraq seemed to be going no- 
where, and the economy fell more and more into debt, people 
around the world questioned our American leader's sanity. 
When you thought you had norhing to fear, there came a man 
like John Oliver who made you rhink otherwise. 

A British comedian and correspondent for The Daily Show 
with Jon Stewart, John Oliver performed at UMD on Febru- 
ary- 9. 2008. Before taking the mic, however, Rory AJbanese 
opened up the show with some stand up comedy of his 
own. After sending the audience into hysterics, he handed 
the mic over to Oliver. 

Walking out onto the stage to an eruption of applause, 
John Oliver began his monologue by informing the crowd that 
as he was British he would be talking with a British accent, 
and "had we not thrown our tea into the Boston Harbor, "we 
would be also. But as for revenge, Oliver claims Americans 
have nothing to fear because "There is nothing anyone can 
do to us that we are not already doing to ourselves." 



With each punch line came howls of laughter from the audi- 
ence. People were roaring as they leaned back in their seats 
as John Oliver continued his act describing our technique with 
Iraq as the wasp nest method. Oliver explained that our situa- 
tion with Iraq was similar to getting stung by a wasp. For 
after getting stung, it seems the only sensible thing to do is to 
follow that wasp to the nest and hit it with a stick. And then 
keep hitting it. 

Before ending the show, Oliver did say how there was still 
hope for the world"in the form of Wikipedia." However, today 
fiction is more attractive than fact. Oliver said, "If our children 
have no future then let's at least give them a past."

Black History 



Month Ball:

We should emphasize not Negro History, but the 
Negro in history— Carter Woodson 

Entering Woodland Commons, where the 3RD annual Black 
History Month Ball was held, you are greeted by the warm 
smiles of Emmanuel Lyte and Salem Amanuel. These two hosts 
of the ball were very appreciative towards their guests who 
came to show their support for Black History Month. 

While the live music of The Ayo Murphy Quartet played, you 
could not help but notice everyone entering the Commons 
sporting gorgeous gowns and sharp tuxedos. As you had a seat at 
one of the many white and gold decorated tables, your first 
course of fresh Caesar salad is served. Looking around the room 
you may have noticed the important figures from the Student 
Affairs Committee or the table full of important public speakers 
caught your eye, whose powerful speeches connected with 
the crowd. Among these faces were guest speakers, Leroy Parris, 
and author oi Black Souls in an Ivory Tower, Dr. Franklin Tuitt, 
who both made amazing speeches of freedom and how far 
African Americans have come. 

All stood up as the Negro National Anthem was sung by fellow 
UMD student, Kerriann Virgo. When the speeches were over, 
a slideshow of several significant African Americans were shown. 




These slides were filled with people who have made a lasting 
impression on society throughout the years and have been 
so influential that many still follow their beliefs. A couple of 
faces that appeared were civil rights movement activists, like 
Martin Luther Kingjt, and black women rights activists, 
Dorothy Irene Height. 

Following the ceremony everyone kicked off their shoes 
and danced all night to the music put on by alumni, DJ 
Paul Brogna. This was Brogna's third time coming back, so 
everyone knew that they would be in for a good time. The 
Black History Month Ball made a lasting impression on many 
throughout the years that it has been held. There is 
a lot to know about black history and the UMD community 
is fortunate enough to have the opportunity to learn of 
its past through people who have been through some of these 
struggles. This is an example of how UMD has an amazing 
community who are accepting to whomever takes interest in 
our school, no matter what their background may be.

Walking into the doors or rhe auditorium, all you heard 
were voices coming from the seats waiting for the contest- 
ants of the next Mr. UMD to make their first appearance. 

There was much pressure put on the male competitors, 
mostly because they knew that Miss Massachusetts was one 
of the many judges judging their every move. This did not 
stop them from breaking it down on stage. The men's first 
task was to talk of their interests and what they love most 
to do with their free time. This gave the audience a chance 
to get to know the contestants and relate to them. After- 
wards, they put on acts leaving their audience in tears from 
laughing so hard. A few of the acts put on by the contest- 
ants were magic tricks, crazy dance moves, acoustic perfor- 
mances, and some impressive beat boxing. 

Just when you thought it could not get any better, the men 
came out on stage sharply dressed in formal wear. They 
were then asked a few questions concerning the university, 
as each one answered with confidence and honesty. As the 
judges voted on their final decision, the UMD Dance Team 
performed. As soon as the dance team wrapped up their 



performance, the anxious contestants came out on stage to 
sing along with former Mr. UMD, as his last song with the 
title. The time had come for the judges to announce the re- 
sults for the crowning of Mr. UMD 2008. The winner of Mr. 
UMD 2008 was announced, leaving winner Todd Migliacci 
with a smile across his face. This tradition has carried on for 
many years now and will continue to in the future, leaving 
both audiences and contestants happy.

Kick up your feet and celebrate, its time to be a kid again ! 



Danielle Santoro 
Katelyn Katie Marcotte 



With the end of school right around the corner it is easy for 
the students to stress out. Luckily, UMD offered a week of 
Springfest activities to take a break from the books and ease 
student's minds before it's back to the preparation of finals. 

Springfest kicked off in the auditorium with a late night 
showing of the horror film, Cloverfield. Students came with 
all their friends and huddled together, knowing they would 
probably need someone to grab when the scenes got intense. 

The traditional outdoor BBQ on the campus patio took place 
later that week on a beautiful sunny day. Students piled their 
plates with as much food as possible, as they enjoyed the plea- 
sant sounds of singers Jessica Sonners and Jason LeVassuer. 
Other students were intrigued by all the free gifts being given 
out! Frisbees, sunglasses, and Vitamin Water got the crowd's 
attention and it wasn't long before people were throwing their 
shoes off to participate in Frisbee games. 

UMD received privileged visits from the band Blessid Union 
of Souls and singer Sean Kingston. Students, children, and 
even adults got to the auditorium an hour early to get seats 



closest to the stage. Students enjoyed listening to the classic 
songs of Blessid Union of Souls from the 90s and the bands 
entertaining vibe kept the crowd hyped. Everyone was on 
their feet singing and dancing to all the songs in the aisles. As 
Sean Kingston made his way to the stage, deafening screams 
came from all the girls as they shouted his name, barely con- 
trolling their excitement throughout his entire performance. 
His upbeat songs kept the crowd energized all night long. 

The last day of Springfest was filled with memories of 
childhood birthday parties, but still unbelievably fun for all 
college students. Students spent the day jumping around in 
inflatables, playing skee ball, making decorative signs, getting 
henna tattoos, and capturing fun moments with their close 
friends in the photo booth area. It was indeed the perfect end 
to a festive week and got students ready to focus their atten- 
tion on finishing up the end of the semester.

Kerry Gorman 



Danielle Santoro 
Patrick Tab Kadlik 



The go to girl for Greek Life. 



Remember the days when you were an freshman year roommate. Kerry felt 
upperclassman rushing around rrying ro so welcomed by the group even before 
get a million things done. With gradua- becoming a member. She knew it 
tion approaching, classes to pass, and job was something she wanted to be in- 
scouting vou may have wondered if it volved with and would then have 



ild 



ever pay 



off? 



However, that's just an ordinary day 
in Kerry Gorman's hectic college life. 
She's an energetic, senior nursing major, 
who does an amazing job balancing 
school, helping others, and taking on 
the time-consuming job as Greek 
Coordinator. 

Kerry, a former member of Alpha 
Sigma Tau has been involved with Greek 
Life since she came to UMD. She met 
the wonderful sisters of AST through her 



supportive sisters to turn to. 

Being the dedicated person that she is, 
she climbed her way up as a member of 
AST. She effortlessly got elected to an 
E-Board position and as of Spring 2007 
became Greek Coordinator. No matter 
what the situation is, Kerry knows how 
I to handle it. She is always spending 
time in the Greek office organizing and 
arranging philanthropic events, like 
Santa's Workshop and weekly meetings 
with the presidents of all the Greek 
organizations. Her goal, as Greek Coor- 



dinator, was to unite all the fraternities 
and sororities on-campus to make them 
into one big family. 

Without Greek Life, Kerry explained 
how she would not be the person she 
is today. One of the most import- 
ant things she emphasizes is "nobody 
is perfect! It is very wearing trying 
to be a perfectionist but you can't forget 
to have fun." Being involved helped her 
develop amazing time-management 
skills and great personable qualities 
which will be very helpful in her future 
nursing career.

Alpha Sigma Tau . 

These sisters know how fortunate they are, so they go be- 
yond the classroom to help those in need. 



Erica Keenan 



In today's society, there are many college students who are 
simply characterized as fun, energetic, and just looking for 
a good time. The Alpha Sigma Tau women have these impor- 
tant qualities, but they are not only defined by them. They 
are also full of ambition, creativity, and strength. These sis- 
ters have been a part of UMD for more than five years now 
and are still constantly growing and learning from each other. 
The sorority became nationally known in 1899 and became 
a local chapter in 1999. Though Alpha Sigma Tau is a young 
member of our community, it still contributes greatly to 
our campus through its various morals and guidelines. Alpha 
Sigma Tau believes that friendship is the key to success in 
its chapter, and its members commit very much to tradition. 
This sisterhood has always valued the contributions each 
member makes to the chapter experience and has always en- 
couraged new ideas and new members. It is a sorority which 
is very open minded, and makes sure to embrace all that 
women have to offer to a community. 

As busy as college life can be, these women still find time 
to help others and make a difference. They help as much as 
they can, devoting hours of work and service to their local 
communities. Because of the amount of help and dedication, 
most of the sisters are rewarded in the end. Each member 
is given scholarship opportunities through the Alpha Sigma 
Tau National Foundation, Inc., which provides over thirty 
scholarships to members each year. Alpha Sigma Tau has also 
provided members with opportunities to give back to their 
local communities and even the nation through their Habitat 
for Humanity network, Pin Mountain Settlement School, 



and many more local charities. Almost every year members 
from the sorority contribute nearly 60,000 hours of service 
and raise over $1,000,000 in donations. The sisters have 
always been proud of the work and service they have accom- 
plished over the years and continue to spread the name of 
Alpha Sigma Tau for everyone to have the opportunity to join. 

If you are unfamiliar with what is called Operation 3H's, it 
is an Alpha Sigma Tau alumnae philanthropic endeavor de- 
signed to support the Warrior Transition Unit at the United 
States Army Garrison Wiesbaden located in Germany. Opera- 
tion 3HS was named for the three most important aspects 
of the organization. These 3H's are hope, health, and healing, 
in which this program hopes to assist the soldiers with. All 
Alpha Sigma Tau alumnae and alumnae associates are always 
encouraged to take part in this pursuit. Donations are also 
welcomed from others whom chose to support the cause, but 
will not be directly solicited. 

With all of these characteristics of Alpha Sigma Tau, one 
could easily see the gteat qualities this sorority has to offer. 
Together as sisters, Alpha Sigma Tau members always have 
each others backs, whether they are helping out in a local 
soup kitchen or taking advice from one another, these sisters 
have always and always will share an everlasting bond. 



Delta Pi Omega . 

A sisterhood valued in trust, honesty, and personal 
growth, but most of all: friendship. 



Courtney Nunes 



Sitting around one of the girl's rooms, the sisters of Delta 
Pi Omega get together for a game they call Pandora's Box. 
Its a game of Would you rather. . . where the girls come up 
with a question and go around the room as each person 
answers. As a way of getting to know each other better, this 
is one of many ways in which the girls bond. 

Delta Pi Omega was founded in April of 2004 by seven wo- 
men leaders looking for an alternative to the current and 
thriving sororities on campus. It became the first local sor- 
ority at UMD, making student organization history. 

Delta Pi Omega is a fun, friendly sisterhood of women who 
strive for academic achievement and work toward bettering 
the community by taking part in different philanthropic 
activities. The sisters of Delta Pi Omega also look to become 
strong women leaders, and are devoted to trust, honesty, and 
the encouragement of personal growth. They build lasting, 
loyal friendships by supporting each other as they progress 
together in order to reach their goals as individals as well as 
a sorority. Currently there are 56 members in total, 27 of who 
are active members who attend meetings and an addition- 
al 13 candidates for membership. The sisters are dedicated 
to educating and supporting each other as they face the many 
challenges they come across on a daily basis. It is through 
this support system of close friends that the girls accomplish 
their goals. 

The girls of Delta Pi Omega could often be found in the 
Campus Center, tabling for different events. The sisters hoped 
to grant a wish by holding a benefit show for the Make- 
A-Wish Foundation. Three bands including Baylock, 
Stealing Jane, and HelloMahalo performed at the 
sorority's Rock A Wish concert in April. 

The girls also took part in the Autism 
Speaks Walk in Rhode Island, where the 
proceeds benefit the National Alliance 
for Autism Research. Other commu- 
nity service projects include Breast 
Cancer Walks, child care events at 
the YMCA and YWCA, and working 
with campus ministry by volunteer- 
ing at local soup kitchens. Every 
April, the women of Delta Pi 
Omega participated in Relay for 
Life, and every December they 
attended a Senior Citizen 
Luncheon along with the rest 
of Greek Life on campus. 



In the past, a the sisters worked with St. Vincent's in order 
to give Christmas gifts to underprivileged children, and even 
baked dog treats for Animal Advocates. 

With all of the philanthropy projects the organization takes 
part in, there was always situations available for the sisters to 
display and improve their leadership skills. One sister of 
Delta Pi Omega, Elizabeth lannotti said, "We never go any- 
where alone. We're very much a team." Since joining the 
sorority, Liz said she has become far more comfortable taking 
charge of a group and has improved her management skills. 
She has also become overall more outgoing and prompt. Liz 
said the best thing about being a sister of Delta Pi Omega 
has been the networking. She has a big family at home and 
claims, If it wasn't for Delta Pi Omega, this wouldn't be my 
home away from home." 

Although the girls are all really different, they all share some 
common characteristics. Each sister has the desire to help 
both people and communities, has a strong sense of caring 
and compassion, and a common enjoyment of social inter- 
actions. The female camaraderie of Delta Pi Omega makes it 
what it is — a group of women closer than friends, sisters.

Phi Sigma Sigma 

These sisters truly make an impact in not only each other's 
lives, but lives across the globe. 



Danielle Santoro 



Monday's mark the day for one of Phi Sigma Sigma' s weekly 
meetings. Every Monday, the Phi Sig girls come together 
to address issues and upcoming events. Seeing these sisters 
together clearly shows the strong bond they hold. The girls 
eagerly embrace new members and quickly chat over person- 
al issues occurring in their lives before the meeting begins. 

This year is an exciting time for Phi Sig because there are 
many new members holding leadership positions. Recently 
the officers attended the Regional Leadership Conference 
to learn about all their vital duties of their positions. These 
girls pride themselves in being an inspirational leader to 
others and staying involved in the community. 

With over forty active members, it is amazing how all these 
girls still manage to stay connected in each other's lives. One 
way that makes the Phi Sig girls great at developing relat- 
ionship with the new and old members is by hosting theme 
nights. These are special nights dedicated to participating 
in fun activities while getting to know all the sisters. 

Phi Sigma Sigma is one of the oldest sororities on campus 
and was founded in 1996. It has 45 members, 9 of which are 
officers. It is a national chapter that was originally founded 
in 1913 in Maryland where the organization's motto came 
about. The Phi Sig motto is to Aim High and that is exactly 
what these sisters do on an everyday basis. Always setting 
goals for themselves and the community has helped them 
accomplish great things thus far. The Phi Sigma Sigma 
sister's outstanding lists of philanthropic events they have 



participated in include the National Kidney Foundation 
and the Relay for Life. This year the girls started a new 
endeavor, which they are extremely passionate about. They 
placed boxes around campus and collected loose change 
from students and other generous donators. All the money 
they raised went to the UNICEF organization, which feeds 
malnourished children in third world countries. 

All the girls agreed how being a part of Phi Sig has been such 
a fulfilling experience. The diverse members add uniqueness 
to the group. They have made a number of lifelong friends 
and have learned a lot about themselves by assisting others 
in the community. The President of Phi Sig, Sara Faulkner, 
explained how"it is great to be involved with a group that 
shares the same beliefs as you." 

The sisters also mentioned how they love being such a ma- 
jor support system in each others lives. This tight knit group 
of girls always can turn to each other for advice in school 
or other life challenges. All the great accomplishments the 
Phi Sigma Sigma organization has achieved is through all 
the help of the sisters working together as a team. They tru- 
ly make an impact it not only each others live, but lives 
across the globe. 



lota Delta Nu 

For these girls, sisterhood came first, but it 
wasn't their only commitment. 



Courtney Nunes 



After feeling as if they didn't completely fit into the other 
sororities on campus, a group of women decided to form 
their own organization in order to give girls another option. 
Iota Delta Nu became the newest local sorority at UMD 
during the spring of 2007. The five founders of the sorority 
were Johanna Hobin, Connie DeCarcey, Michelle Hall, 
Meghan Thompson, and Julie Raimondi. They felt that by 
forming Iota Delta Nu they had begun something that 
they were able to mold. By the end of the organization's 
second year, Iota Delta Nu consisted of 30 members. 

Members oflota Delta Nu, also known as the Iotas, placed 
value in leadership, diversity, academic excellence, and friend- 
ship. The Iotas were devoted to community involvement 
and their local philanthropy, which was children's literacy. 
The sisters' kept true to their motto, which was to Love thy 
Sister. Iota Delta Nu served as a support system for women 
and provided a path of self discovery through sisterhood. 

Community building was also a huge part oflota Delta Nu 
in which the girls gained leadership experience. One of the 
events that the sisters participated in was the annual Senior 
Citizen Banquet, in which the girls cooked and served a ho- 
liday meal to the elderly. Other philanthropic activities the 
members of Iota Delta Nu took part in were the American 
Cancer Society's Relay for Life and various walks to benefit 
autism research. 

Iota Delta Nu's sisterhood contained a diverse group of 
women that ranged from the quiet girls to the loud and pr- 
oud. Every sister contributed something unique to the so- 
rority, as each was really different. Sisters oflota Delta Nu 
were Orientation Leaders, Residence Assistants, university 
athletes, members of Psi Chi, members of the Golden Key 
Honor Society, and tutors for the American Reads program. 

Iota Delta Nu offered women on campus a chance to not 
only help others, but to also better themselves through 
support and motivation. The networking that the sorority 
provided allowed these women an opportunity to not only 
make friends, but sisters.

David Gerth: 

With his confident attitude and approachable demeanor, David will 
leave big shoes to fill. 



Soraya Jonet-Branco 
Chi-Hang AndyFung 





Being a transfer student is always a hard 
adjustment since you have to leave a 
place where you're comfortable, start off 
fresh, and surround yourself with a 
new group of people. But David Gerth's 
passionate and driven approach led 
him to adjust to the UMD life just fine. 

Being a part of a fraternity at his prior 
school, David decided to continue being 
a part of something that makes a differ- 
ence. His life has done a 180 since being 
at this campus. David credits taking an 
initiative to get involved as to why he's 
changed into the leader he is today. 

His hard work and dedication led him to 
become president of Phi Kappa Theta, 
an Orientation Leader, and treasurer 



of the class of 2008. Being a market- 
ing major involved with a handful of 
organizations leads to a very chaotic 
schedule, that includes numerous 
responsibilities and duties. Yet he still 
finds time to golf, play the drums, and 
attend events with his fraternity broth- 
ers. After graduating, David hopes to 
land a sports-related marketing job and 
stay very active in the community, 
especially with the fraternity. 

David loves everything about UMD, 
especially how the campus allows 
people to be who they are and do what 
they love. Each day he is able to do 
what he is passionate about and puts 
his heart and soul into it. When David 
looks back at his time at UMD, he can 



be grateful that he made the best of 
these four years and that he made a 
difference in the community. He advises 
seniors to "try hard to make the most 
of this time and to be passionate because 
it is much more than just school."

Phi Kappa Theta . 

Brotherhood is an eternal bond that can never be broken. 



Erica Keenan 



Phi Kappa Theta has been around for many years, dating 
back until 1889 when it was first founded and five years 
ago the Massachusetts Kappa Theta Chapter of Phi Kappa 
Theta was founded. Since then the fraternity has stayed 
strong, recruiting young men who are determined and want 
to have fun throughout their years at the UMD. Out of 
the five fraternities on campus, Phi kappa Theta is definitely 
one of the most active in the community sticking to one 
motto, give, expecting nothing thereof. 

It all started when Jarod Winters transferred from the Uni- 
versity of New Hampshire mentioned to fellow UMD student, 
Steve McBride that he was part of an amazing fraternity, 
Phi Kappa Theta at UNH. Jarod realized that the fraternity 
did not exist on his new campus so he knew that had to 
change. Jarod then proposed the idea of forming a chapter 
of Phi Kappa Theta at UMD to Steve. Events were soon 
planned and they started handing out flyers around campus 
promoting the fraternity. It was not before long until informa- 
tion meetings were held, resulting in 12 brothers pledging. 

These groups of men have not only shared their fun spirit- 
ed attitudes with their fellow classmates, but have particpated 
in many events involving the community and the student 
body. A great example of this is the Relay for Life. This event 
consists of an all night walk around campus raising money 
for the American Cancer Society. They have also raised money 
for Operations First Response and have contributed to the 
Senior Citizen's Holiday Party. If you missed out on any of 
those events, you could also catch them in the next town 



over in Fall River at Jake's Bar where their positive energy 
sets the mood for the night. 

They have worked hard in order to promote their fraternity 
and encourage any student who takes interest in joining. 
These brothers have stuck with one main principle and that 
is to break the stereotype of usual fraternities. This frater- 
nity has come a long was since April 20, 2002, where they 
started off with no brothers. Now they are one of the 
largest fraternities on this campus. This year has been a huge 
success in the amount of brothers who have pledged, 
with a total of 85 members and 36 active members it is no 
wonder why their name is seen all around campus. 

Because the fraternity has been around for so long, there have 
been a few familiar and very important figures in history 
that have taken part in the fraternity, starting with President 
John F. Kennedy and co-founder of Microsoft, Paul Alan, 
was a brother as well. These important figures are role models 
for future chapters and pledges, to show them how much 
they are capable of accomplishing. These brothers take pride 
in who they are and have an amazing bond that will never 
break. Starting new friendships, creating strong bonds, and 
making a difference, in the lives of others and your own, 
is an opportunity that should not be passed. 



Chi Phi 



Truth, honor, and integrity. 



Courtney Nunes 



Cheering on the Corsairs basketball team in the gym, sprint- 
ing across the grass during a game of Ultimate Frisbee, or 
just hanging out watching a movie on a Sunday night, these 
were some of the typical activities that brought the brothers 
of Chi Phi together. Brotherhood events like these were what 
influenced the friendships within the fraternity. 

Chi Phi was originally founded as a national fraternity 
on December 24,1824 at Princeton University, making it the 
oldest social collegiate fraternity in history. It wasn't until 
November 5,2002 that the fraternity was locally founded, and 
2004 until Chi Phi was affiliated nationally. After receiving 
its charter, the UMD colony officially became the Lambda 
Theta Chapter of the Chi Phi fraternity on October 20,2006. 

Built on the three principles coming directly from their 
motto, the brothers of Chi Phi placed great value in truth, 
honor, and personal integrity. The men sought to better 
themselves through lifelong friendships, leadership oppor- 
tunities, and character development. By joining the frater 
nity, the men were able to strengthen their social attributes, 
communication, and academic skills. 



Sean also said that what he liked about Chi Phi was that it 
wasn't a fraternity that was similar to those portrayed by the 
media where the members all look the same, constantly 
drink, and have to do stupid or dangerous stunts in order to 
pledge. Since joining Chi Phi, Sean said that he has be- 
come much more sociable and has made a lot of really close 
friends. He also claimed that becoming a member of Chi 
Phi was one of the best decisions of his life. 

By pledging to the fraternity, each member became a part 
of a network of brothers who served as a support system and 
motivator for each other. Chi Phi's diversity of brothers 
has enabled each member to learn about others as they worked 
towards bettering themselves and their community. 



Chi Phis national philanthropy was working with the 
Boys and Girls Club. The brothers often tutored at the Boys 
and Girls Club, and also contributed to the building of 
a new playground there. Another community service project 
that the fraternity participated in was the annual Relay 
for Life walk, where proceedings went to support research 
to fight cancer. Along with the Delta Pi Omega soro- 
rity, the Chi Phi brothers also took part in the Toys for Tots 
program, where they helped children in need by sending 
them presents during Christmas time. By working with these 
charitable organizations, the brothers were able to better 
their own lives by helping others. 

Aside from taking part in various philanthropy projects, the 
men also came together for different social events. The bro- 
thers tried each year to schedule at least one social event with 
each of the other fraternities and sororities on campus in 
order to meet new people. They also got together each year 
for the Alumni Holiday Dinner. 

Chi Phi was accepting of everyone and was made up of a di- 
versity of brothers. There was no hazing, and each of the 36 
members was accepting of people of every sex, creed, and 
orientation. Each member brought something unique to the 
fraternity based on who they were. One brother of Chi Phi, 
Sean Murphy said that he learned more about himself 
by learning about others. "What you learn from diversity, 
is what you don't learn in the classroom," said Sean.

Sigma Phi Rho Inc 

Their great achievements on and off campus make them great 
Rho-models. 



Danielle Santoro 



Whether they are putting on community service events or 
hosting dance socials, Sigma Phi Rho's upbeat and energetic 
attitude makes them well-known on campus. The brothers 
of Sigma Phi Rho Inc. have great team-working skills because 
they have achieved so much with only 19 members in the 
group. Much like the other Greek Life organizations, 
their extensive list of accomplishments make them great 
role models in the UMD community. 

Sigma Phi Rho Inc. is a national fraternity that was found- 
ed out of Statin Island, NY, back in 1979. It came to campus 
in April 2002 and emphasized the motto of strong character 
and good moral judgments are the essence of dignity. The brothers 
are expected to be diligent individuals on and off campus. 

Campus unity is really important to the Pvho brothers; they 
always try to get students involved in not only fun activi- 
ties, but also educational ones. One entertaining event to par- 
take in is Rho Week. This is an exciting week filled with 
basketball tournaments, movies nights and dance socials. One 
special treat of the dance socials is the step performances of 
the Sigma Phi Rho brothers. These men have mastered the art 
of step dancing and have used their skills to raise money 
for the Shriners Hospital in Boston. Their passion for dance 
has also made it a great hobby for the team to do together. 
They have been able to travel around the Northeast displaying 
their one-of-a-kind dance moves. 



othets aware of AIDS and to help the victims of HIV. In addi- 
tion, the brothers of Sigma Phi Rho Inc. also dedicate 
theit time to helping younger high school students. Recently, 
they created a mentoring program for students of the New 
Bedford Regional Vocational Technical High School. Setting a 
positive example to young males in the school is very im- 
portant to the brothers. They work with the students and help 
prepare them for college by assisting them in the applicat- 
ion process and giving them a taste of what college life is like. 
Simple presence in the students' life has encouraged the 
high school students to set goals and keep their mind on what 
they can accomplish in the future. 

The brothers of Sigma Phi Rho Inc. clearly do a great deal 
for each other and others in the community. President, 
Michael Andrade explained how, "Greek life has been an all 
positive experience. It has given me structure and a sense 
of the bonds of brotherhood." They take pride in being strong 
leaders and setting a good example for others. The diverse 
members have kept the organization fdled with innovative 
and unique ideas. The willingness to volunteer time and deve- 
lop bonds with the brothers have facilitated in the successful- 
ness of the organization. 



This year has also marked the eighth annual AIDS benefit. 
This is a very educational community service event to make 



Theta Delta Chi 

Theta Delta Chi is a brotherhood founded on mutual 
esteem and dependence.

The brothers ofTheta Delta Chi are constantly searching and 
welcoming new members all year around. The fraternity 
has never discouraged their fellow classmates from joining other 
Greek otganizations, but instead encouraged them to look fur- 
ther into their fraternity as well. But let's be honest, who would 
not want to be apart ofTheta Delta Chi? With all it has to 
offer, you would find yourself statting a new chapter in your life 
that kept unfolding into something greater everyday. 

The journey ofTheta Delta Chi all started with the state- 
ment, let's start a fraternity. Three undergraduates had watched 
the film Van Wildet and became inspired to start their own 
fraternity. The men knew they were in for a long ride but after 
approaching a few friends with the idea, the men knew they 
wanted a fraternity that had a strong New England represen- 
tation. It was not before long when they found theit perfect 
match, Theta Delta Chi. To the young men's surprise, the 
fraternity's headquartets happened to be located in Boston. As 
soon as possible, they contacted the charge consultant so they 
could begin the process of starting the fraternity at the UMD 

Each semester Theta Delta Chi collects meals from Res Cafe 
in order to raise money for their philanthropy, The Jimmy 
V. Foundation. The idea of the fundraiser has always been to 
donate the most meals as possible, the more meals, the 
more money is raised to hand over to the charity. The frater- 
nity has had much success over the years, raising several 
thousand dollars. They have also participated in Relay for Life 
raising money for the cancer foundation. The brothers of 
Theta Delta Chi have enjoyed much of their time participating 
in these events while having fun at the same time. One of 
the events they have participated in was the Polar Plunge, which 
took place at Plymouth beach, where the brothers jumped 
into the frigid ocean wearing nothing but shorts. Not only did 
they have the time of their lives, but also raised money for 
a new cancer wing at Jordan's Hospital. 

Although Theta Delta Chi has been around since 1847, the local 

organization was founded in 2005. Since then it has turned 

into one of the largest and most popular fraternities 

on campus. Because they accept new membets all 

year around, it makes it easier to take a part in 

this amazing opportunity. With 35 brothers 

this yeat, it is no wonder why their colors 

blue, black, and white have been seen 

all around campus. These brothers are 

very proud of each other and will 

continue to grow as a family into 

manhood. 




Sigma Tau Gamma 



Danielle Santoro 



Life is a highway and the Sig Tau brothers are working hard to 
pave the way for future generations. 



Joining a fraternity will allow you to experience college in 
the best possible way. . . It will give you the leadership experi- 
ence that you will take with you to yout first job out of col- 
ege" explained Edgat Roth, president of Sigma Tau Gamma. 
This organization has helped shape the ideals of its mem- 
bers by emphasizing six main principles: value, learning, 
leadership, excellence, benefit and integrity. 

Sigma Tau Gamma is a national fraternity founded in 1920 
out of Warrensburg, Missouri. It was established on campus 
in 1995 as the Epsilon Kappa Chapter. Sig Tau enjoys host- 
ing many social events on campus to strengthen their own 
bond and to interact with the intriguing individuals of the 
UMD community. They are especially well-known for their 
entertaining rock climbing, bowling, midnight kickball, and 
club nights in and around the Dartmouth area. In addition, 
they organize the annual White Rose event, named after 
their fraternity flower, which celebrates the members' dili- 
gent efforts throughout the year. 

This organization donates much of their time in assisting 
others and contributing to Books for Kids, the national char- 
ity of Sig Tau. The brothers also participate in walks with 
the YWCA and the Fall River Boys and Girls Club. As well 
as offering much of their time to the New Bedford home- 
less shelter and fundraising events on campus like the Relay 
for Life. Currently, the boys are discussing plans to join the 
"Adopt-a-Highway" project, which will benefit our environ- 
ment by cleaning and maintain a portion of the highway. 



The brothers of Sigma Tau Gamma have gone on to do great 
things in society. Today, there are many that hold govern- 
ment positions, are the CEOs of large companies, and are 
radio /television personalities. These individuals started out 
being involved students on-campus, participating in many 
activities like orientation leaders and tour guides. 

Roth described that, "Being a brother of Sigma Tau Gamma 
was the best decision I ever made. It opened up many doors 
and gave me experiences I could never have otherwise gain- 
ed. I am president and it is something that I would have 
never thought I would be when I was in high school. I have 
met people that I know I will be friends with for the rest 
of my life." 

The brothers of Sigma Tau Gamma have made a great diff- 
erence over the years by staying true to their original beliefs 
that the fraternity established. They have raised money 
for a number of charities and have helped make its presence 
well known on-campus by holding different entertaining 
events that appealed to all UMD students. The experience of 
the great support system, volunteer work, and contribu- 
tions made have allowed them to grow into outstanding indi- 
viduals. Following the six principles they have learned will 
allow them to have continual success in their future careers.

Greek Charity 



Danielle Santoro 
Chi-Hang AndyFung 



The brothers and sisters of Greek Life are always trying new 
ways to give back to the community each and every year. 



For all members of Greek life, philanthropy is as important 
as any brother/sister bond. All the fraternities and sororities 
come together every year to participate in the Relay for Life 
Event to support the American Cancer Society: the most 
popular philanthropic event on campus. 

Knowledge is power and it is a goal of these organizations 
to expand the knowledge of others in the community. Sigma 
Phi Rho hosts an annual AIDS benefit to raise money, pro- 
mote awareness, and help others understand how this disease 
is a global threat. The Chi Phi and Sigma Tau Gamma bro- 
thers along with the sisters of Iota Delta Nu understand the 
importance of reading. They encourage literacy in children 
through tutoring and giving donations. 



Many under privileged children around the world are not 
able to get the appropriate health care and treatment. There- 
fore, Phi Kappa Theta has donated to the Children's Miracle 
Network to improve their treatment options. The Phi Sigma 
Sigma sisters contributed to UNICEF to feed mal-nourished 
children and the Delta Pi Omega sisters helped the Make-A- 
Wish foundation grant a child's wish who suffers from a ter- 
minal illness. 

Other members of Greek-life spend their time bettering the 
environment and the community's physical appearance 
around them. Theta Delta Chi also does a beach clean up, 
while Alpha Sigma Tau assists Habitat for Humanity and 
raises money for local charities for community development.

Greek Life has indeed made its presence well known on cam- 
pus and in the community. They are always taking time out 
of their busy lives to assist the community and put on social 
events to encourage student involvement. Corey Donovan, 
a member of TDX, explained that "philanthropy is a large part 
of Greek Life and being able to come together to make 
a difference in a community or at school always means a lot 
to us." It not only means a lot to them, but also to the chari- 
ties that uses their assistance to better the world around them. 





Erin Dacey- 

When a new opportunity emerges, Erin Dacey always rises 
to the occasion. 



Soraya Jonet-Branco 
Chi-Hang Andy Fung 




Most students saw Erin Dacey either 
in a nursing class, an organization meet- 
ing, or partying at The Catwalk. It 
was impossible to not see her around 
since she was involved with so many 
aspects of student life. 

As a freshman commuter, it can be 
pretty hard to participate with things 
going on on-campus, but Erin dedi- 
cated herself to meeting new people 
and making the best of every situation 
that came her way. With her bubbly 
and personable personality, Erin quick- 
ly adjusted to college and began get- 
ting involved. Her determination and 
confident attitude led her to pledge 
for Delta Pi Omega, an organization 
where she could grow and thrive, 



with the support of her sisters. Even 
with demanding nursing classes, her 
leadership qualities have led her to 
become 2008 class president, orienta- 
tion leader, RA, and homecoming 
queen. And you thought your schedule 
was hectic! 

Taking on these roles, Erin understood 
that it meant a lot of hard work and 
motivation. These organizations have 
become more than just an extracurricu- 
lar activity to her. Although it is hard 
work, being involved has been one 
of the most memorable experiences that 
she's had here and the people in these 
organizations have become like a second 
family. But overcoming the stressful 
times made Erin who she is today — 



a real leader who accomplished the 
goals she set for herself day one of col- 
lege. She made a great impact on 
this university and an admirable ex- 
ample for others to follow. 

To the senior class, Erin leaves some 
advice," Challenge yourself to get the 
most out of everything. Don't be afraid 
to make mistakes or change your mind 
but put your heart into everything 
because it is then that you can say you 
gave 100% of yourself and achieved 
greatness."

Chi-Hang Andy Fung 
Katelyn Katie Marcotte 



Jon Garcia: 

Designing a path that will keep him on track to success. 



Courtney Nunes 
Chi-Hang Andy Fung 



After watching his uncle run distance 
in the Latin Olympics, Jon Garcia's 
first thought was "this is awesome." For 
Jon's own track career, this was the 
spark that ignited the fire. But what 
prompted him to run was seeing his 
brother excel in track. Jon figured, "If 
my brother has talent, I have to have 
talent." After winning 3 NCAA champ- 
ionships and 6 All-America honors, 
Jon proved that his brother wasn't the 
only one whose ability to run was 
exceptional. 

After graduating from Stoneham High 
School and coming to UMD, Jon said 
at first he wasn't going to do track in 
college. After thinking it over, however, 
he said, "I knew I had to pursue it. 



I kept telling myself, I have this talent, 
don't let it go." By participating in both 
winter and spring track, Jon admitted 
the sport has pushed him to pursue. He 
described track by saying, "It's me. It's 
who I am." 

Throughout his career, Jon competed in 
the long jump, triple jump, and hurdles. 
In his senior year, he was named Regional 
Division III Indoor Male Track Athlete 
of the Year by the US Track & Field and 
Cross Country Coaches Association. In 
2008 he finished first in the 55m hurdles 
at the NCAAs with a time of 7.46 sec- 
onds. He also set a school record of 7.36 
seconds in the 55m hurdles, when he 
competed in the Open New Englands, 
where he came in second place. 



As a graphic design major, Jon worked 
hard to balance track with his academ- 
ics. Along with the support he received 
in the athletic department, what he 
liked most about UMass was the great 
art department. Jon said, "I really love 
it here. I've learned to see things differ- 
ently when it comes to art. I can now 
see what makes something beautiful." In 
his spare time, Jon enjoyed coming up 
with new designs and strengthening his 
portfolio, or just hanging with friends. 
According to Jon, his achievements 
both on and off the track have made 
him who he is today.

Elizabeth Fitzgerald 



Overcoming all of life's challenging obstacles with a positive attitude, now that is a true 
role model. 



Soraya Jonet-Branco 
Chi-Hang Andy Fung 



Being an athlete requites ttemendous 
dedication, teamwork, and motivtion. 
All spotts demand every inch of muscle 
in your body, every ounce of energy 
in you, and every waking moment dedi- 
cating youtself to the sport. The field 
hockey team is a close-knitted group of 
women who dedicate themselves to 
the sport everyday. Many of the girls on 
the team know Elizabeth Fitzgerald as 
the outgoing, adventurous, and friendly 
captain, who thrives upon the inten- 
sity of each game. 

Liz came to UMD looking for new 
experiences and got them by having a 
double majot in Humanities and 
Social Sciences, getting involved in the 
basketball and field hockey team, 



and surrounding herself with some 
of the best of friends that she found 
here. Her motivation led her to excel in 
sports, as well as in academics, while 
still finding time to enjoy things such 
as shopping and going to the gym. 
Halfway through her senior year, Liz 
had to drop out of school because she 
got sick. The diagnosis was cancer. 
This would terrify and stop anyone in 
their tracks. However, this gave Liz 
the motivation she needed to get better 
and back to school and graduate. 

Being back in school, Liz decided 
to be a teacher, so that she can be a role 
model for children, just as her grand- 
parents, who were alsoteachers, did for 
her. By coming back to school, she 



was able to get the full college experi- 
ence, meet some inspirational people, 
and having her most memorable experi- 
ence here: beating Southern Maine 
in the semi-finals at home. Liz shares a 
piece of advice from her own experi- 
ence here, to "enjoy it while you can 
and you absolutely cannot take it 
for granted because it goes by too fast". 
Graduating in May, Liz recognizes 
the positive influences in her life that 
have helped her through all of life's 
challenges. The bond that the field 
hockey team had truly made an impact 
on Liz's life.

Valerie Amaral '08 




The Class of 2008 is 45% female, 55% male. We represent 
Massachusetts and countries other than the US. We entered 
with an average SAT score of 11 60. We have an average 
GPAof3.2. 

And look at what we've become. 

We are presidents and executive board members of orga- 
nizations. We are members of Greek life. We are 26 athletic 
teams and 116 student organizations. We are weekly meet- 
ings. We are recruitment. We are passing out quarter sheets 
and fliers. 

We are captains of teams. We are NCAA champions. We are 
Division III title holders. We are all stars. We're record hold- 
ers and breakers. We're scholarship winners. We're last off 
the court. We're laps around ring road. We're grass stains that 
even our mothers can't get out. We're Corsairs. 

We are Mr. and Ms. UMD. We are homecoming kings and 
queens. We love Bev at Res. We are large Chippis from 
Mirasols. We're Horseneck beach combers. We're birthday 
celebrations at Wasabi. We are grilling at the Dell. We're 
Facebookers. We're searching for parking. We are The 
Catwalk on Thursday and late for class on Friday (And we 
are sorry for this). We're two World Series winners. We're 
die-hard fans. We bleed blue and gold. 

We are grant writers. We're late nights at the library. We're 
senior design projects. We're white lab coats. We're out in 



the community. We are research hours. Practice hours. Clini- 
cal hours. We are UMassers. 

We're also resilient. We're survivors. We're soldiers. We're 
full-time jobs. We're mothers, fathers, sons and daughters, 
brothers and sisters, husbands and wives. We're first genera- 
tion graduates. We're underdogs. We're Katrina volunteers. 
We are humanitarians. We're open hands, hearts, and minds. 
We're compassionate. We're dreamers. We are achievers. 

We're muses, artists, writers, sculptors, composers, creators, 
painters, and photographers. We're group sixers. We're com- 
ics and magicians. We're late nights at the Star Store. We're 
bilingual and even trilingual. We're Kekeli drummers and 
dancers. We know No Problemo, Spicy Lime and Union 
Street. We "ride the loop." 

We see beauty in the everyday. We're beyond our education. 
We're confident in our abilities and successes. We've taken 
memories. We've learned. We've expanded our minds and en- 
riched our spirits. We've grown. We are prepared. We've 
made bonds and built relationships. We're friends who beca- 
me a family. We've gained respect and trust with faculty and 
staff. We're products of the University. Not only have we left 
our footsteps in the halls of UMass Dartmouth, but we have 
cemented our legacy. We did it! 

We ARE the class of 2008.

Andrea, You Did It!!! 

Your accomplishment is a milestone in your life and 
also in ours! On this foundation, your future dreams 
will be built! You have always been a blessing in our 
family. From the photographs of your first steps... to 
today's remarkable achievement, you never measured 
wealth in riches, but in walking this earth with love 
and humanity in your beautiful heart! As you grew, 
we encouraged you to take wing and never surrender 
your dreams, however, you reached beyond yourself 
and climbed even higher! 

The course you chose was demanding and diffcult, 
and you have arrived at this turning point through 
hard work, persistence, drive and diligence! To com- 
plete this took a lot of courage and sacrifice, but you 
continued to forge ahead to this new horizon, and 
you stayed true to your own self. 
As God's gift to us and to the world, we celebrate 
your summit moment with our highest joy, blessings 
and endless love! 

We Love You 

Ray, Aleksis, Alaina, Julia, Athena & Manny, Alex& 

Amanda, YiaYia and your Mom & Dad!

Neither to change, nor falter, nor repent; This, like

Alexandra Meriel Cragin 





We are very proud of all that you have accomplished 
these past few years. Keep your sights on the stars 
and your dreams alive and life will be a wonderful 
journey! You have been blessed with a great potential 
for learning. You have used this ability to earn a 
special degree but what you do with it will determine 
the quality of not only your life but of others. As a 
famous Italian author, Leo Buscaglia, once wrote: 
The essence of education is not to stuff you with facts but 
to help you discover your uniqueness, to teach you how 
to develop it, and then to show you how to give it away. 
Use your talents to make this world a better place. 
Congratulations!

Since childhood, Kristina has always shown determination, courage and 
strength in anything she sets her mind to. Always a dedicated student and an 
inspiration and role model to her siblings. The road ahead is full of promises 
and challenges; never lose the spirit that has guided you through the rough 
patches. We are honored and proud to have a wonderful, beautiful, and car- 
ing daughter. We love you! Your family 




Yes, it seems that you, Kristina Rae Barrett, were 
destined to be a Corsair, and that you've charted a 
course for success. You've made everyone so proud 
over these four years with amazing academic achieve- 
ments, working hard to help pay your way, and 
demonstrating such maturity that there's no doubt 
that the world is yours for the taking. This was your 
grandfather's favorite quote, and it seems just right 
for a spirited young woman about to embark on life's 
adventure: 

One ship goes east, the other goes west, 
By the very same wind that blows. 
It is the set of the sails and not the gales, 
Which determines the way she shall go. 

It is up to you to set your sails.

Erica Whynot 



Congratulations Erica, on an outstanding four years! 
Although at the time it probably seemed as though it 
would never end, you'll realize soon how short a time it 
really was. The friends you've made along the way you'll 
most likely have for quite some time. You'll get together 
with them and wonder where the time went. You'll remi- 
nisce about good times, hard times and hopefully forget 
any rough times. But now the fun really begins. So many 
opportunities and possibilities lie before you. Remember, 
there's nothing you can't do that you put your mind 
to. We're so 
proud of you 
and wish you 
all the best in 
whatever future 
you choose. We 
love you!

Congratulations Jamie, 

We want you to use your heart as a compass as you 
grow and find your way in the world, but we want 
you to always have an appreciation for the direction of 
home. We want you to be self-reliant, self- motivated, 
and self sufficient, but to know that you will never be 
alone. We pray that you won't rush the future and that 
you'll slowly build on the stepping stones of the past. 
So many treasures await you in your journey of life... 

If you want the rainbow you have to put up with the rain

Dear Kerry, 

Congratulations on your college graduation! We are so 
proud of you. We know how hard you have worked 
for this. School has always been your number one prior- 
ity and it has paid off in a big way — you have sacrificed 
so much. We know that you will become a wonderful, 
caring, and compassionate nurse. You have had a lot of 
experience and you can now put all that you have learned 
to good use. We know that you will be the best that 
you can be because whatever you did — Softball, cheering, 
track, etal — you always gave no%. Once again, know 
how very proud we are and always have been of you. 
You have never let us down. We love you and know you 
will do your very best in becoming a nurse and whatever 
else you do in life. Congratulations Kerry! 
Love,
