To the Graduating Class of 2009, 

Receiving this book marks your final year at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. As a freshman, 
I remember people telling me how fast it was going to fly by — I never believed them. Four years later, 
a lifetime worth of memories, and friends that will last a lifetime, it is time to say good-bye to UMD and 
hello to a new chapter of our lives. 

These are the times you are going to look back on, and reminisce being the best years of your life. You 
will remember the times you spent studying until 2AM and skipping class to get a few extra hours of 
sleep. The times you made the Dean's list and the look on your proud parents' face. The times spent in 
student organization meetings or playing on Cressy field. The times partying on Thirsty Thursday and 
nights spent with Captain Morgan and Smirnoff. 

Many lessons have been learned; bad decisions have been made, along with good ones. Whatever 
you take from your experience here did not necessarily come from a lecture, a classroom, or even during 
a teacher's office hours. It might have come to you in the most unexpected place, like a friend's apart- 
ment, during a drunken heart to heart, or in a fight with a roommate. It is these people who made you 
the person you are, the ones who helped your college life be such a success. These are the moments 
that change your outlook on life. The bonds created during your years here are life-long. 

What happens now is unpredictable and unknown. The future holds so many possibilities. Embrace 
each and every new experience, because with each experience comes self-discovery. We have all cer- 
tainly gone through many changes since freshman year. Whether these changes are subtle or evident, 
they are what help you realize who you truly are and who you want to be. This book is a reflection 
of your success here, so that in years to come, you can look back on all these unforgettable memories. 

The best of luck to all and congratulations! 

Sincerely, 





Soraya Jonet-Branco

Behind these walls our lives were controlled by structure. Whether it was 
family responsibilities, due dates, deadlines, or social time — our lives were 
molded around our environment. Our curriculum structured our career paths, 
our classrooms facilitated learning, and our minds developed goals to attain. 

Behind these walls the different elements of UMD made us who we are 
today and developed our current paths. Whether it was the classes that 
developed our skills, or the schedules that we worked around so perfectly, 
structure was the basis for our careers, failures, and success while here. 

Behind these walls we all learned how to pull strings, make excuses, de- 
velop our skills, and make lifelong friends. We were provided with structure 
and support to guide us, and in turn we will provide these motivators to 
others in the future. 

Behind these walls UMD was not just a school, it was a time line, a goal, 
an accomplishment, and most importantly a way of life.

The truth behind the staircases, tunnels, and those stories you've heard 






Scrimshaw 2009 



14115 




After all the time you spent at UMD, you might 
think you've learned all there is to know about 
the campus, but unless you've heard of a man 
named Paul Rudolph you don't know the half of 
it. Over the years, students have passed along 
the myths and legends of UMD from one class 
to the next. But ever wonder what was fact and 
what was fiction? 

Among the crazy stories is the tale of Rudolph, 
the supposed Satanist architect, who designed 
the structure of the campus and its buildings. 
Rumor has it that he committed suicide by jump- 
ing from the bell tower, but in fact it was cancer 
that took his life in 1997. While it is said that 
an overhead view of the campus will reveal 
that the buildings create a pentagram, this is 
about as true as the story of the suicidal archi- 
tect. There is no pentagon 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 Clock- 
work Orange and believe the school's architec- 
ture was designed after the mental institution 
in the film — it's not. The buildings were actu- 
ally 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 while walking around campus is the 
relatively narrow stairs, which were apparently 
created in order to slow people down and 
allow them to appreciate the campus. Also, 
the concrete and large windows add to the feel- 
ing of being outdoors while remaining inside. 

Because a state educational television network 
was originally planned for the campus, it required 
a walk able network of underground tunnels for 
coaxial cable. These tunnels are said to connect 



the freshman buildings to the academic ones, 
which just may have come in handy when you 
had braved the rain, sleet, and snow to make 
it to class. 



Night Life 

Relieving the stress of college at the local hot spots

Year after year Thirsty Thursday was the one 
night of the week every college student acknowl- 
edged. It was an excuse to celebrate the ap- 
proaching weekend, relieve the stress of school 
work and have an amazing time. The moment 
classes were out it was time to contact all 
your friends and answer the night's toughest 
question, Where should we party? 

Luckily if you were 21 or had a decent fake ID 
you would be going to one of the nearby bars 
or clubs. Bar 908, The Catwalk and Jakes were 
some memorable places to attend. Waiting in 
line was unbearable, but once the bouncer gave 
you the ok to go on in, it was time to turn your 
frown upside down. 

Students frantically made there way to the bar 
and immediately made eye contact with the 
bartenders hoping to get served right away. With 
a drink in one hand, it was time to scope out the 
room and greet all of your friends. Who knows 



who you were going to run into, but you were 
guaranteed to see old acquaintances and even 
make some new friends. 

Early in the night, most people would socialize 
and casually watch a sports game. However, as 
the hours passed and a few more drinks were 
finished, the blaring music of the bar simply be- 
came irresistible. All those who say they couldn't 
dance were letting loose and grooving to the hyp- 
notic sounds. People were socializing and having 
fun. Others were working up the confidence to 
get someone's phone number or buy them a drink. 

Students snapped back to reality once the main 
lights turned on. Is it really necessary for me to 
go to class tomorrow and can I afford one more 
absence crossed many minds during the cab 
ride home. Nevertheless, there was no denying 
the excitement and memories of a bar night. 
Any troubles or concerns simply faded away 
when you were surrounded by friends in one 



of these hotspots. Fortunately for students, the 
next morning meant it was Friday and one step 
closer to the weekend.

UMD and the South Coast 

The UMass neighborhood offers more than meets the eye

Trapped in a small dorm room or a concrete 
classroom, life within of Ring Road can seem 
restless and monotonous. However, undergrads 
need only travel short distances to explore the 
many options and opportunities offered by 
Southeastern Massachusetts. Though UMass 
is located in a suburban setting, the area can 
quell any students' shopping, entertainment, 
or eating desires. 

Simply driving down Route 6, restaurants close 
to campus range from quick bites to casual and 
cozy atmospheres. Cheap and convenient favor- 
ites such as Mirasol's famous for their quesadil- 
las and Chippis, Not Your Average Joe's brings 
customers to the table with their addictive bread, 
and Wasabi's infamous scorpion bowls were 
perfect for a night out. Those willing to spend 
an extra ten minutes will find a wealth of great 
places in New Bedford. Antonio's offers heaping 
portions of authentic Portuguese food, while 
No Problemo serves up unbeatable Mexican fare 
in a cozy and comfortable setting. 



Minutes away from No Problemo are two 
alternative options for shopping in New Bed- 
ford. Both Calico and Circa Vintage Wear 
are changing the way that people think about 
shopping in the South Coast. Though the Dart- 
mouth Mall is perfect for the everyday items 
at chains such as Old Navy and Express, both 
stores provide unique and reasonably priced 
items without making the trip elsewhere. 

Also nearby is the New Bedford Whaling Mu- 
seum where full-size whale skeletons hang from 
the ceiling of the immaculately kept, modern 
building where entertaining events and interest- 
ing exhibits are held regularly. Another historical 
must-see is the Lizzie Borden House in Fall River 
containing a Bed and Breakfast along with a 
museum. For less creepy endeavors, Carabiner's 
Indoor Climbing contains a giant rock-climbing 
wall that is both challenging and entertaining. 
Closer to campus, Flagship Cinemas plays the 
latest comedies and dramas, regularly offering 
student discounts. 



Though students can find all the aforemention- 
ed hotspots indoors, nature lovers will also be 
pleased to find outdoor havens on the South 
Coast as well. Buttonwood Park is the home 
to large fields where locals can be seen strolling 
and jogging at all times of day along with the 
Buttonwood Park Zoo which houses everything 
from iguanas to elephants. Sunbathers and 
swimmers seeking solace and sun can visit both 
Horseneck Beach in Westport and West Island 
in Fairhaven for a quick dip in the Atlantic. 

With all these alternatives, it's difficult to 
understand taking the half hour drive to Provi- 
dence or hour trek to Boston. When searching 
for fun on the South Coast, the answer is just 
a few steps away.

Move-In Weekend 

Farewells, fresh starts, and a lot of heavy lifting 



Alicia Petitti photographer 
Courtney Nunes writer 






Scrimshaw 2009 



24125 




It was the day you had been waiting for all 
summer, the day when you said goodbye to 
structure and control and hello to independence. 
Little did you know that day would consist of 
waiting around for hours in the school's parking 
lots and emptying your life's possessions onto 
the sidewalk. 

Every year, move-in weekend offered students 
a fresh start to a new school year as thousands 
poured onto campus enlivening an otherwise 
ghost-like community. It began with students 
unpacking their things from the backs of hastily 
parked cars, and ended in tearful farewells 
to family and friends. 

As cars began pulling in, anxious students 
and parents littered the ground with boxes 
and bins packed with books, shoes, pillows, 
and video games. Calls of watch outand 
excuse me rang throughout the halls of the 
dorms as movers hauled televisions and 



refrigerators up the narrow staircases. Stu- 
dents wormed their way into the last possible 
elevator spots as they struggled with arms 
full of overflowing boxes of clothes, toilet paper, 
and shampoo. 

After hours of lugging around boxes and count- 
less trips back and forth to your dorm, it was 
time to say goodbye. As you insisted to your 
parents that you had everything you needed 
and that you would be fine, you knew you could 
still expect that phone call a few hours later 
from a worried mom or dad making sure that 
everything was okay. 

While new students entered the worn down 
freshman halls, upperclassmen looked forward 
to residing in the Woodland Apartments and 
Cedar Dell. For freshman, move-in weekend 
marked the beginning of discovery, challenges, 
and fun. For the first time, they would exper- 
ience the excitement of late night parties and 



the tedious chores that went along with inde- 
pendence. Sophomores and juniors anticipated 
returning to life as they had left it just one 
year earlier, and meeting up with old friends 
and new roommates. But for seniors, it be- 
gan the end of the ride, as they would relive 
all the fun and craziness for one last time. 



UMD Goes Green 

Students and staff lead the way to a greener future 



Erica Keenan photographer 
Courtney Nunes writer 



With all the talk about global warming, resource consumption, and the ever-increasing accumulation 
of garbage, UMass Dartmouth decided to join America in its national effort to go green in the fall 
of 2008. 

By signing the American College & University Presidents Climate Commitment, Chancellor Jean F. 
MacCormack agreed to enact campus efforts to become carbon neutral in the spring of 2007. Then, 
the Greater New Bedford Refuse District and the Town of Dartmouth helped fund the purchasing of an 
estimated $20,000 worth of recycling bins. 

One of the major changes you probably noticed was how far recycling had come over the past year, 
as blue receptacles marked for specific content were placed everywhere from the Campus Center 
to the classrooms. 

Housing Facilities Operations and Services also stepped up in instituting a pilot program in all residence 
halls for single stream recycling. Every dorm room was supplied with a blue tote bag for recyclables, 
and the freshman quad eliminated indoor trash cans completely. Allowing students to throw everything 
into the same bin without any sorting made recycling as simple as possible, in the hopes that more 
students would contribute to the effort. 

Incorporated into the program, Campus Dining Services had also taken strides in sustainability. 
A new policy was enacted in which all pre-consumed food preparation waste was saved up to be 
sent to local farms to use as fertilizer compost. While Campus Dining Services also took part 
in daily recycling of cans, bottles, and plastic, the Commuter Cafe offered reusable eco-clamshells 
for takeout food and optioned to use chinaware during lunch to reduce waste. 

Efforts in reducing paper waste were increased as the Carney Library launched a new print solution, 
which affected anyone printing from the CITS labs. This saved a lot of paper as an average of 800 sheets 
were printed daily, yet.never picked up. 

While the university made great strides in promoting waste reduction, students and staff have gone 
the extra mile in contributing to help save the planet.

Trojan Comedy Tour 

Learning the importance of safe sex through humor

Trojan Condoms has started a campus wide tour 
to motivate Americans to change their ways 
and start being safe when it comes to sex. 
Sexual heath is extremely important and many 
college students have not taken an active role 
in the decisions they make when it comes 
to their sex lives. Some students have assumed 
the view that certain things cannot happen 
to them. The truth is that anyone can be infected 
with an STD or HIV and it is essential to take 
precautionary measures. 

On September 24, 2008 the Trojan team came 
to campus to create awareness and get students 
more interested in their sexual well-being. One 
feature of this campus tour was a virtual roller 
coaster ride. Students lined up to view a short 
three minute film on the importance of condoms. 
Watching the movie on an omni screen, viewers 



actually felt like they were experiencing the 
motions of a roller coaster. People enjoyed 
this amusing mini-ride and also learned statistics 
of the risks involved with unprotected sex. 

Students also participated in trivia contests and 
won prizes based on their knowledge of STDs and 
other shocking statistics. Many considered the 
contests just about fun and games, but it was 
also a reality slap for others. Learning the outra- 
geous truths made students rethink some of 
their past choices and hopefully created a new 
mind set with this gained knowledge. 

The day of awareness continued into the night 
with a hilarious comedy show. Comedians Jordan 
Carlos, Julian McCullough and Steve Byrne were 
featured for this event. The comedians per- 
formed their acts and featured special jokes that 
reminded students the importance of taking care 



of their bodies. The jokes enabled listeners to 
comprehend appropriate sexual well-being in 
a humorous way. 

The day's events and unique approach really 
impacted students. Learning how easily people 
can be infected definitely made students think 
twice about not using a condom. It is your 
body and it is important to take care of it. Why 
let one bad judgment ruin your entire life? 



SAIL Weekend Events 

Working to create a closer community through music and laughter

On Saturday mornings the UMD campus used 
to look like a ghost town. The empty parking 
lots and quiet atmosphere was uncanny to see 
in comparison to the lively commotion of the 
school week. Even though UMD had about 4,500 
students who reside on campus, many chose 
to go home on the weekends for various reasons. 
SAIL took notice of this occurrence and decided to 
implement a change to make staying on campus 
during the weekends more intriguing to students. 

The fall 2008 semester was the start of instituting 
these new programs and events. The first of 
many SAIL events were the Concert Series in the 
Woodland Commons. Talented local singers and 
musicians would come to campus to perform and 
relate to students. It was a time to relax with 
friends and enjoy the pleasant sounds of a num- 
ber of unique musicians. The visitors were very 
friendly and took time to speak with students 
about their careers and how they write lyrics. 



SAIL was also in charge of spreading the word 
of important events occurring on campus. Every 
year Sigma Phi Rho would host the AIDS benefit 
to teach others about worldly issues that were 
overlooked by students. The UMD Theatre Com- 
pany also created a number of shows for stu- 
dents to attend on the weekend. They performed 
various plays like the Rocky Horror Picture Show 
and their own personal productions. These shows 
provided entertainment and a bonding experience 
with roommates and new friends on campus. 

Activities for friends and family to partake 
in were also developed. Friends interested in 
video games participated in a number of SAIL 
competitions to show off their skills. In addition, 
October 3-5 was Family and Friends Weekend. 
Being away from home for so long, parents were 
able to finally see what life was like for their 
children and diminished any homesick feelings. 
Exciting activities also occurred off campus. 



Trips were arranged to King Richards Fair 
and a tour of NYC. Both events were extremely 
popular and succeeded in keeping students 
on campus. Students had a safe way to spend 
their weekends enjoying life and view his- 
torical monuments. 

The great thing about the events created was 
that there was something for everyone. SAIL's 
institution of weekend activities proved to be 
a tremendous way to come together and share 
common interests; enabling weekends at UMD 
to become less of a ghost town and more of a 
thriving community. 



Family and Friends Weekend 

Bringing the whole family together through food and entertaining activities

College was the first time for many students 
to finally get the chance to live on their own. 
Dealing with this newly discovered freedom 
and stimulating life became addicting. How- 
ever, even though most would hate to admit 
it, memories of home came to mind every now 
and then. Luckily for us, on the first weekend 
of October, SAIL hosted the Friends and Family 
Weekend. This was an opportunity for students 
to get reacquainted with their loved ones and 
show them their new interesting lives at UMD. 

The day was kicked off with a delicious break- 
fast in the Campus Center where parents, 
students and siblings reunited. Parents intently 
listened and shared stories about intriguing 
experiences. Faculty mingled with family mem- 
bers and enlightened them about the new pro- 
grams in the curriculum. 

Parents took a tour of the campus, visiting dor- 
mitories and then the academic buildings, where 



they got to see exactly what a typical day was 
like for students on campus. They also viewed 
outstanding artwork and listened to brief lectures 
highlighting all the different undergraduate 
programs on campus. 

The weekend events were also about having 
fun with all your family members. Younger 
brothers and sisters enjoyed three legged races, 
venturing the rock climbing wall and bounc- 
ing around on moonwalks. Families spent time 
together attending the Corsair sporting events, 
cheering on the hardworking UMD players. 
Students took time out with their families to 
show them all the city attractions that created 
a buzz outside of campus. 

Parents enjoyed exploring the campus where 
they could attend interesting sessions about 
student development and finance. They also 
could purchase various paintings created by 
UMD students. 



At the end of the day, families said their good- 
byes, but the weekend events were a success. 
Parents enjoyed sharing the school experience 
with their son or daughter, while alleviating 
any homesick feelings. 



Homecoming 

Relive the UMD excitement each and every year

Homecoming Week was always jam-packed 
with activities, pumping up the school for the 
big game on the weekend. It was a wonder- 
ful way to celebrate school spirit and it marked 
a special time to spend with family, friends 
and alumni. Students got to see old friends and 
shared memories while watching a thrilling 
football game. 

An autumn vibe was created early in the week. 
In the campus quad, students were greeted 
with musical performances and handed cups of 
popcorn and cider. They also enjoyed the pump- 
kin give-away, which most students could not 
wait to bring back to their dorms to carve into a 
jack-o-lantern. It wouldn't be fall without a little 
football either. The Greek organizations played 
in an aggressive Powder Puff game showing off 
their passion for their sororities and fraternities. 



Game day started with a parade around Ring 
Road. Onlookers became more enthused as 
they heard the roaring bellows coming around 
the corner. The UMD organizations traveled 
on exceptionally decorated floats across campus 
as they cheered in anticipation of the game 
later that day. 

The atmosphere was filled with excitement as 
classmates ran into old friends. Goodie bags 
filled with UMD memorabilia were given out 
to all those who bought tickets. Others enjoyed 
a little day drinking and used their tickets to 
grab a few drinks at the beer truck, which was 
the social area for most students. 

During the game, the crowd was on their feet 
the entire time showing their support for the 
Corsairs. At half time, the 2008 king and queen 
were crowned. Doug Woodhouse and Shelagh 



Frossard earned the majority of the votes and 
wore their well deserved crowns with pride. 
The second half of the game was just as exciting, 
ending in a Corsair victory, and leaving many 
memories for years to come.

7 th Annual Aids Benefit 

Coming together to improve the quality of life in the community

On October 18, 2008 the Brothers of Sigma Phi 
Rho Fraternity and Rho Roses continued their 
tradition, as they held the 7th Annual AIDS Ben- 
efit. The annual benefit is held in an effort 
to promote HIV/AIDS awareness and to relay 
the importance of AIDS prevention. 

Guest speaker, Daniel Scanlan from the AIDS 
Action Committee spoke to a packed auditorium 
not only about how to prevent the epidemic from 
spreading, but also how to optimize the health 
of those already infected. Scanlan also reminded 
the crowd that AIDS is a deadly disease without 
a cure and that it affects all of our communities: 
straight, gay, white, black. 

While Scanlan provided the crowd with the 
information they needed about HIV/AIDS, host 
Kevin Brown of NBC's 30 Rock and former brother 
of Sigma Phi Rho took care of the entertainment 
for the night with constant audience interaction. 



It's very exciting to come here each year, said 
Brown. / pledged to this fraternity some 22 years 
ago, before these young men were even born. 
To see my young brothers carry on this tradition 
is like watching my kids grow up. 

Brown kept the energy moving throughout 
the show with comedy that had the audience 
laughing out loud, while still warning every- 
one of the dangers of AIDS. He urged the crowd 
to get tested and even pulled his own test 
results from his pocket to hold up to the audi- 
ence. 

Throughout the evening UMD students took 
part in the show through a mixture of vocals, 
raps, dances, and other forms of expressive 
art. The crowd was awed by the many multi- 
cultural performances which focused on hope, 
nobility, and respect. 



Towards the end of the night Sigma Phi Rho's 
step team closed the show with a performance 
on stage. The audience was enlivened as the 
rest of the brothers jumped up onto the stage 
as the song Swagger like Us blared through 
the speakers. 

Comedian, Donnell /4s/7y/.a/yyRawlings, from 
The Chappelle Show gave the crowd a few 
more laughs before the much anticipated 
after party. The night proved to be a success 
as everyone enjoyed their time with friends 
after coming together to recognize a major 
issue that affects our community. 



U M D Votes

Young voters step up and make history in deciding America's future 



Most college students usually got their dose of politics by checking in with guys like John Stewart 
on The Daily Showor by catching reenactments of the candidates on Saturday Night Live; but in 2008 
more and more were tuning in to the real thing. 

While presidential nominees Senator Barack Obama (D-IL) and Senator John McCain (R-AZ) hit the 
campaign trails, student organizations launched a campus-wide, non-partisan effort to encourage the 
university's 9,300 students to participate in the 2008 state and federal elections. 

Through the combined efforts of the Student Senate, Office of the Student Trustee, MASSPIRG, SAIL, 
student Democrat and Republican organizations, and a few others, over 1,500 new voters were regis- 
tered during this two-week period. 

In anticipation of the election, a series of speakers were invited to campus, including the first female 
governor of Vermont, Madeleine Kunin, along with political satirist, Jimmy Tingle. Debate watching 
events, a voter registration drive, and absentee ballot assistance were also set up, prompting students 
to get out their vote. MASSPIRG took a step further in its New Voters Project^ organizing class an- 
nouncements and dorm storms, in which they went door to door spreading the word about registration. 

For those who did make their voices heard on Election Day, shuttle services were provided from campus 
to local polling places, where thousands turned out to cast their vote. 

The real impact of the election hit campus when Barack Obama was elected the first African American 
President of the United States. Following the announcement of Obama's victory a celebratory march 
made its way across campus. Chants of Obama! Obama! and Yes we did! along with the victorious 
beat of drums could be heard as students rejoiced in their hopes for the future. 

Many newscasters all over the nation stated that this election was about the new voters. For the first 
time college students really made their voices heard and made others listen to what they had to say; 
UMass Dartmouth students were a part of this historic moment and should be proud of making 2008 the 
year of change.

After a record breaking 41st season, the UMass 
Dartmouth Theatre Company received a standing 
ovation with its compelling performance of 
Dale Wasserman's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's 
Nest. The production was directed by Justin 
McCoubry and featured a cast of sixteen UMass 
Dartmouth undergraduate students including 
Jeff Brown, Katie Gregory, Brian Townsend, 
and David Meczywor 

From November 20th through the 23rd, the Angus 
Bailey Jr. Memorial Stage was transformed into 
the Oregon State Hospital's Psychiatric Ward. 
The show began as audiences were introduced 
to the various ward patients, and the admission 
of convict Randle Patrick McMurphy (Brown). 
With a history of assault and battery, drug use, 
and statutory rape, McMurphy had declared him- 
self insane in order to serve out his sentence in 
a mental institution rather than going to prison. 



But McMurphy soon discovered that life at the 
asylum was ruled by the domineering Nurse 
Ratched (Gregory). Ratched controlled the men 
by encouraging them to spy on each other and 
participate in group sessions in which they tell 
her of each others bad behaviors. At first the 
patients believed that Ratched was trying to help 
them, but eventually agreed with McMurphy's 
assessment of her. 

Profane, boisterous, and brawling, McMurphy 
caused mayhem for the asylum staff while inspir- 
ing the submissive patients. His wise remarks 
and shameless attitude caused frequent laughter 
throughout the audience. 

But the fun and games were put to an end, 
when the show shifted to a more serious tone. 
The crowd watched intently as they learned 
one patient, Billy (Meczywor), had slit his throat 
after an incident which Nurse Ratched blamed 
on McMurphy. 



Tired of dealing with his out of control be- 
havior, Nurse Ratched ordered a lobotomy 
to be performed on McMurphy. After the surgery, 
the ward patients looked down at the loboto- 
mized body, wishing McMurphy could come 
back to his old self. At the end of the show, one 
patient, Chief (Townsend) suffocated him and 
escaped the ward, strengthened by McMurphy's 
influence. With the final curtain call, members 
of the audience got up from their seats and ap- 
plauded the cast on their gripping performance 
of Ken Kesey's 1962 novel. 



Miss UMD

As one girl steps down from her throne, another will take the crown 




On Thursday, December 4, 2008 nine girls com- 
peted, all with one mission: to prove they had 
what it takes to be crowned the next Miss UMD. 
Hosted by Miss UMD 2007, Shelagh Frossard 
and Mr. UMD 2008 Todd Migliacci, the contest 
was based on stage presence, talent, formal 
wear, and responses to questions related to 
life at UMass Dartmouth. 

With the music of Rihanna's Disturbia blasting 
through the speakers, the contestants kicked off 
the night with a dance to a medley of popular 
songs, which included When I Grow Up, Woman- 
izer, and Swagger Like Us. After pumping up the 
crowd, the girls were given a chance to make a 
personal appeal to both the audience and judges 
by talking about themselves and their involve- 
ment on campus. 




Up next, was the talent portion, which included 
singing, dancing, and even some comedy improv. 
After impressing the crowd with a variety 
of performances, the girls were then tested with 
a little Q&A as they stood in the daunting spot- 
light. Following the grilling question and answer 
session was the formal wear category. Dressed 
to impress, the contestants were escorted across 
the stage to show off their stylish gowns. 

As the competition came to a close, Capitol Re- 
cords recording artist, Ferras, then took the stage 
for a special musical performance. At the piano, 
he played songs from his album including, Dear 
God, Aliens and Rainbows, and Hollywood's Not 
America. Inspired by Elton John, Ferras sang Tiny 
Danceras the crowd waved their cell phones 
in the air, illuminating the darkened auditorium. 




Finally, the time had come to announce the 
winner. As the contestants lined up, members 
of the audience called out to their favorites 
as the judges came to an agreement. Miss 
UMD 2008 was. . . Valerie Barretto! 

The crowd burst into applause as Valerie was 
awarded the sash and crown. She graciously 
thanked the audience and praised the other 
contestants, saying I love every single one of 
these girls. They are awesome. 

With UMD's queen crowned for another year, 
all of the contestants left that night proud to 
have taken part in this exciting experience.

After a long winter break, getting back to work 
can be a challenge, but Welcome Back Week 
provided students with an opportunity for some 
Vegas style fun before making their way through 
the spring semester. 

Festivities began on Monday, January 26th with 
Movie Madness Day. From 11 am to 5pm, CAB 
had six Vegas style movies playing on the big 
screen in the Commuter Cafe to get the hype 
going about the upcoming week. Students were 
able to kick back and relax as they watched 
films such as 21, What Happens in Vegas, and 
Ocean's Eleven. CAB also handed out stadium 
cups filled with chocolate casino coins as treats 
for students to enjoy. 

Tuesday was Variety Night, and at 7pm the Main 
Auditorium opened up for some live entertain- 
ment. UMass Dartmouth's very own Todd Migli- 
acci performed fire-eating, along with various 
other great magic tricks before mentalist Jonny 
Zavant took the stage for his performance. 



On Wednesday, comedian Geoff Keith visited 
campus, providing students with a break from 
studying and a night full of fun. The entire 
bottom of the auditorium was filled as Geoff 
performed his hilarious act, which had every- 
one rolling in their seats with laughter. 

For those who had never been to Vegas, CAB 
brought some of the excitement and thrill 
to UMD on Thursday as the Commuter Cafe 
was turned into a casino. During the day, stu- 
dents were able to have their picture taken 
and super imposed into a postcard that placed 
them in various Vegas locations. But the real 
fun took place at night, as students were able 
to try their luck on the money wheel and in 
games of black jack, Texas Hold 'Em, roulette, 
and craps. 

The week came to a close on Friday night with 
a game of BLINGO. The event was so large that 
CAB had to relocate from the Commuter Cafe 
to the Main Auditorium. After various rounds 



of BLINGO, ten winners walked away with prizes 
that included an iPod Touch, LCD HD TV, Nintendo 
Wii, Guitar Hero World Tour, Blue Man Group 
tickets, and a mini laptop. 

While the week's events were certainly thrilling, 
for once what happened in Vegas didn't have to 
stay in Vegas. 



Black History Month Ball 

Honoring the past inspirational speeches and dancing 



Erica Keenan photographer 
Danielle Santoro writer 



Growing up in this day and age, we had a number of options and opportunities at our fingertips. 
The changes that have occurred over the years have allowed us to have new privileges and 
offer chances that weren't previously available. During the social movement many developments 
had been made in African American Rights. February was a great time to celebrate Black History 
as well as remember the great heroes that were involved in the process. 

On February 6th, 2009 students and faculty gathered in the Woodland Commons for the 4th annual 
Black History Month Ball. Guests entered the Gala in fancy attire and were immediately greeted 
by their friends as they checked in. Cocktails and hors d'oeuvres were served as attendants social- 
ized, waiting for the event to commence. 

Welcome speeches by Renee Lopes-Pocknett and Chancellor Jean F. MacCormack opened the 
event. Everyone enjoyed a delicious dinner and glanced towards the slideshow revealing im- 
portant figures in history that have made strides for improvements. Guests attentively listened 
to the speakers as they spoke about the importance of Black History Month and continuing 
to inspire progressive change. The presentations also reflected President Barack Obama's new 
seat in office as the first Black President of the United States and a symbol of the hard work 
and advancement African Americans had made throughout history. 

The night continued by honoring students on campus who have made an impact in the community 
at UMass Dartmouth. Four boys and three girls were nominated and they each gave speeches about 
why Black History Month was important to them. All guests voted for the most deserving candidates 
to be the next King and Queen. 

After the King and Queen enjoyed their first dance it was time to party! Everyone put their dancing 
shoes on and ran out to the dance floor as the the DJ put on upbeat music that pumped up the entire 
crowd. It was a great way to celebrate the hard work put into the event and the contributions made 
by the Frederick Douglas Unity House to make the event a success.

Vagina Monologues 

Empowering women through humor and philanthropy

The theater, engulfed in man-made fog and 
shrouded in pink and purple light, turns dark 
as undergrads, parents, and theater-goers hush 
anticipating the beginning of the show. For 
the next two hours, they will not only be enter- 
tained, but also enlightened. Directed by Laura 
McHugh and Megan Gauthier (who between 
them have six years participating and running 
The Vagina Monologues), the show is a collec- 
tion of rants, stories, and experiences written 
by Eve Ensler. 

The cast members of the show have worked 
tirelessly to bring to life this seamless produc- 
tion and in the end all the hours paid off. The 
play highlights various issues dealing with 
female sexuality and embroils the topics with 
humor and care. In a society where these top- 
ics are often swept under the rug and considered 
taboo to be talked about in public, The Vagina 
Monologues makes no apologies for its upfront 
and frank discussions of women's issues today. 



In addition to being uproariously funny and 
thought provoking, The Vagina Monologues 
is also part of V-Day, a global movement that 
has raised over $45 million to end domestic 
violence against women in the US and develop- 
ing nations. Funds have gone towards opening 
shelters, launching anti-violence campaigns 
and creating safe houses all around the world 
for battered women. Through the production 
of The Vagina Monologues, actors and audience 
members give a voice and outlet to millions 
of women that have been silenced through 
domestic violence. 

This year, the V-Day movement has shined its 
spotlight on the Democratic Republic of Congo, 
where rape and femicide have been prevalent in 
the interstate war. V-Day paired up with UNICEF 
to contribute funds from productions of The Va- 
gina Monologues to end the prevalence of sexual 
and physical violence against women. Proceeds 
will go towards raising awareness about rape 



in the DRC, advocating for policy making against 
this practice, providing support, and specifically 
the creation of the City of Joy in Bukava. This es- 
tablishment will serve as a refuge for survivors of 
Congolese rape and torture and provide training 
for strategies in income-generating opportunities 
and activism skills. 

This activism will only serve to perpetuate 
the message of empowerment that is raised by 
The Vagina Monologues. For such a production 
to also contribute to such generous philanthropy 
is just an added bonus to a wonderful play. 



Mr. UMD

Mr. UMD showcased the talent of unique individuals on campus 






During our college years, we often can remem- 
ber going to the auditorium to see interesting 
guest speakers, hilarious comedians or amazing 
musical performances. The entertainment was 
a great way to showcase the talent of success- 
ful individuals outside the community. However 
what about those of us on the inside? Well, luck- 
ily for us an event was created that allowed the 
men and women of UMD to display their talent 
for their peers. 

The spring semester was time to focus on the 
UMass men as they volunteered to participate ■ 
in Mr. UMD. Each individual would display an 
exceptional skill and the overall winner would 
be crowned and given the prestigious title of 
Mr. UMD. It wasn't long before this event had 
become a tradition here on campus, gaining 
support from students who were eager to join 



in on the fun or witness it first hand. Some of the 
same participants each year would come back 
and try to top their previous performances; doing 
something more wild or memorable was a goal 
of most of the partakers. The show never got out 
of control, but often times resulted in uncontrol- 
lable laughter. 

Onlookers got to the show early to grab front 
row seats. They wanted to be as close to the 
entertainment as possible and were eager to 
see what would happen this year. The UMD 
men slowly went over their performances back 
stage before the nerves kicked in. One by one 
the performers carried out their talent as the 
student's exciting screams and laughter echoed 
in the building. The crowd was so astonished 
by the individual's performances that they started 
chanting their name until they got off the stage. 



The rapping styles, dancing skills or other unique 
talents kept the show going strong all night. 
Students were on their feet as they cheered and 
supported their fellow peers. It was entertaining 
to watch students be carefree and comfortable 
on stage. Crowning the top performer was tough, 
but the crowd went crazy when Alex Sinkus was 
named Mr. UMD 2009.

Spring Fest 

Sometimes all you need is a breath of fresh air

With the snow melted away and the campus' 
grayness turned green, UMass Dartmouth 
celebrated Spring's arrival with a schedule of 
activities that would rejuvenate the campus. 
As finals crept closer, Springfest gave students 
a chance to de-stress before finishing up the 
semester's work. 

The week kicked off with some free give- 
aways, which included cookies and bubbles, 
followed by a late night showing of the 
horror film, Friday the 13th. Students hud- 
dled together with their friends as the night 
grew darker and the scenes scarier. 

On Tuesday, the contestants for that night's 
Mr. UMD competition ran carnival games 
in the campus quad. Throughout the day, 
many students relieved some stress by chal- 
lenging their friends to games while getting 
some fresh air. 



At 7pm the auditorium filled up as the Mr. 
UMD pageant began. With music blaring and 
friends cheering, the show was a great time 
to be had. The crowd went wild when Alex 
Sinkus was named the winner and given 
the crown. 

More freebies were handed on Wednesday at 
the traditional outdoor barbeque on the campus 
patio from 4 to 7pm. While filling their plates 
with as much food as possible, students rocked 
out to the sound of Barefoot Truth, a New Eng- 
land based jam band, influenced by those such 
as Dispatch and Guster. 

The next night, everyone headed down to 
the Commuter Cafe to join their friends in 
a battle of Don't Forget the Lyrics! Based on 
FOX's popular game show, the contest had 
students singing along to a variety of songs, 
while challenging them to remember all the 
right words. 



On Friday, teams of eight people each ran around 
campus in a day long scavenger hunt lasting 
from 11am to 5pm. Winners received prizes such 
as Dunkin Donuts gift cards, UMass Dartmouth 
t-shirts, and tickets to a Pawsox game. 

The week long festivities continued on Saturday 
with inflatables set up on the quad. Students 
were able to try out the Robo Surfer, Pedestal 
Joust, and Bouncy Boxing along with other fun 
and exciting activities. 

Springfest concluded later on that afternoon with 
a waffle ball tournament that gave students one 
last blast of fun before getting back to work for 
the final week of the semester.

Ben Allis 

Changing UMass Dartmouth one step at a time 



Jenna Rodrigues photographer 
Danielle Santoro writer 



When we look back on our senior year we 
often remember all the exciting memories but 
also the extensive workload and time con- 
suming schedule. However, Ben Allis was not 
intimidated by the demanding agenda ahead 
and in his final year of school took on the tasks 
of Chi Phi President and Greek Coordinator. 

Ben transferred to UMD in spring 2007 as 
a junior with a sociology major and philosophy 
minor. Entering a new school so late was 
a scary thought for most students, but Ben 
made the most of his situation. He found 
his place at UMD by joining Greek Life and 
admitted to that being his main reason for 



staying. His passion for Greek Life grew as he 
participated in community service events and 
met amazing people along the way. In no time, 
he was elected President of his fraternity and 
selected for Greek Coordinator in the fall of 2008. 
Ben had many responsibilities; he constantly 
communicated with all the other Greek organiza- 
tions, developed the latest community service 
projects and dealt with any issues that arose. Ad- 
ditionally, he worked on developing proposals to 
make positive changes to the Greek community. 

If that wasn't enough, Ben also held a part time 
job at American Eagle, worked at the Reading 
and Writing Center on campus, and enjoyed 



volunteering. When he had some additional time, 
Ben would partake in activities like hiking, surf- 
ing or competing in Triathlons, basically anything 
to be outdoors. 

His hard work and dedication for what he does 
helped Ben thrive at school. Being involved in 
the community he learned how much he enjoy- 
ed helping others and believed it was the best 
way to develop the tools needed to succeed in 
the future. His main belief is to, Do what makes 
you happy because life isn 't worth living if you 
aren't happy. Ben intends to work at a non-profit 
organization after college and hopes his passion 
and drive will assist him in reaching his goals.

Theta Delta Chi 

Brothers based on character, sincerity, scholarship, leadership and inner worth 



Courtney Nunes writer 



Every day on campus, the average student will unquestionably 
pass hundreds of undergrads proudly donning their fraternity or sorority's 
moniker on t-shirts, sweatpants, and even frisbees. At times, the Greek 
letters mix into an indistinguishable blend of sigmas, deltas, and omegas 
that, to a casual observer, all look the same. However, at UMass Dart- 
mouth, three symbols stand out: 0AX. The brothers of Theta Delta Chi 
illustrate their dedication, not only through their outstanding philanthropy, 
but also the gregarious and accepting attitude illustrated in the vast 
array of its members. Our hearts are united, the frat's official motto, is 
more than just a platitude — TDX takes their brotherhood seriously. 



For 162 years, Theta Delta Chi has been fostering the development of each 
member, intellectually, morally, and socially through friendship. Founded 
at Union College in 1847, TDX is the eleventh oldest fraternity in the United 
States, but has only just begun to make its mark in Dartmouth. Though 
their cause of unifying friends in brotherhood is noble, the historic roots 
of the founding of the lota Triton charge is quite unlikely. It all started 
back in 2005 while three students sat in their dorm watching National 
Lampoon's Van Wilder. Something in the comedy prompted the founding 
fathers of lota Triton to get the fraternity up and running within a few 
short weeks. 

It was an ambitious, time-consuming, and risky endeavor, as creating 
a brand newstudent organization is certainly no cakewalk — however, 
hundreds of alumni and current members can attest to the worth of their 
journey. There is no mystery as to why TDX has quickly become one of 
the most popular fraternities on campus. Accepting new members through- 
out the entire year rather than the typical rush week, the fraternity puts 
no barriers on potential brothers. The group boasts a diverse mix of back- 
grounds, interests, and majors that have joined together to form one unit. 

In its brief history, Theta Delta Chi lota Triton has also strived to give back 
to the South Coast community as well as national charities. These brothers 
utilize their mind, body and soul embarking on such fundraising events 
as the Polar Plunge. Stripping down to swim trunks, members plunged in- 
to the ice-cold waters of Plymouth Beach in the name of Cancer research, 
determined to make the event as lucrative, successful, and fun as possi- 
ble — frostbite or not! Even local wildlife can attribute their increased well- 
being to TDX. By teaming up with MassPIRG, members combed local beaches 
and removed long forgotten lobster traps endangering marine life. 

Through innovative events and inspiring charity work, Theta Delta Chi 
embodies the best in modern Greek life. Their attitude and generosity should 
serve as an example to all undergrads on how to make the best of their 
years on this campus. To quote from Van Wilder, the movie that started it 
all, If you're always thinking about the future, then you kind of forget about 
the present. If there is one thing that the members of ©AX do right — it is 
ensuring that no moment is wasted.

Chi Phi 



Laura Carroll writer 

Brothers working towards bettering themselves and the community 



A tire, empty containers, cans, pieces of shipping rope and Christmas 
tree needles littered the shores of the Fairhaven beaches. It was bad, said 
Ben All is. President of Chi Phi Fraternity, There was just a disgusting amount 
of trash. We brought what I thought was a lot of bags, but we ended up using 
them all within a half hour. People don't recognize what is happening, and it 
was just such a shock to me. 

Built on the three principles, the brothers of Chi Phi placed great value in 
truth, honor and personal integrity. The men sought to better themselves 
through lifelong friendships, leadership opportunities, and character de- 
velopment. Through taking part in various philanthropy projects, such as 
cleaning up Fairhaven beaches, the brothers were able to not only better 
themselves, but the community as well. 

Chi Phi was originally founded as a national fraternity on December 24, 1 824 
at Princeton University, making it the oldest social collegiate fraternity in his- 
tory. It wasn't until November 5, 2002 that the fraternity was locally founded, 
and in 2004 Chi Phi was affiliated nationally. After receiving its charter, the 
UMD colony officially became the Lambda Theta Chapter of the Chi Phi Frater- 
nity on October 20, 2006. 

Becoming a part of the fraternity gave men the opportunity to strengthen 
their social attributes, communication, and academic skills, while displaying 
leadership through philanthropy. Chi Phi's national philanthropy was working 
with the Boys and Girls Club. The brothers often tutored at the Boys and Girls 
Club, contributing to the building of a new playground there. They have also 
held raffles in which 1 00 percent of the proceeds benefited the organization. 



Another community service project that the fraternity participated in was the 
annual Relay for Life walk, where proceeds went to support research to fight 
cancer. In the past, Chi Phi has also worked with the Delta Pi Omega sorority, 
raising money for the Toys for Tots program. In 2008, approximately $1 ,000 
was donated to the program, which helped children in need by sending them 
presents during the Christmas season. 

Aside from taking part in various philanthropy projects, the men also came 
together for different social events. Each year, the brothers tried to schedule 
at least one social event with each of the other sororities and fraternities on 
campus in order to meet new people. 

There was never any hazing within the fraternity, and each of Chi Phi's 35 
members was accepting of every sex, creed, and orientation. The group was 
diverse and each member brought something unique to the fraternity based 
on who they were. 

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. 
Whether it was cheering for the Corsairs basketball team in the gym, 
sprinting across the grass during a game of Ultimate Frisbee, or just hang- 
ing out watching a movie on a Sunday night, brotherhood events like these 
were what influenced the friendships within the fraternity. 



Sigma Phi Rho 



Danielle Santoro writer 

One of the smallest fraternities on campus that made a huge difference in their community 



The extensive list of community service events Sigma Phi Rho participated 
in is quite impressive. Nationally, the fraternity donated to the Treatment 
on Demand and Family Planning, and locally the brothers volunteered their 



We have all seen those wild movies where Greek Life was displayed 
as a major party house where the individuals exhibited crazy behaviors 
and did nothing but drink alcohol. However you can't always believe the 
movies, in reality, Greek Life had so much more to offer and certainly 
deserves credit for its generous contributions to society. Sigma Phi Rho 
broke the mold of the typical stereotype and was one of the exceptional 
organizations on campus that made a difference in the world with their 
positive attitudes and openheartedness. 

Sigma Phi Rho was founded nationally in 1979 as part of the Mu Chapter. 
It was established on the UMD campus in 2002 and was often referred to 
as The Rho or Death Rho. The colors of the organization were brown, white 
and a hint of gold. All the individuals had diligent qualities and determina- 
tion as they lived by the fraternity motto, strong character and good moral 
judgment are the essence of dignity. Their constructive behavior and passion 
for change helped them accomplish many achievements on and off campus. 



time to create awareness. One campus event they 
were well known for was hosting the Annual AIDS 
Renefit. They had established the tradition of the 
AIDS benefit which taught students the importance 
of practicing healthy behaviors and understanding 
the truth about the AIDS virus. In addition, they also 
participated in the Relay for Life to raise money 
for the American Cancer Association. Off-campus 
they had created a mentoring program for young 
male high school students. They shared experiences 
from their own lives and the importance of setting 
goals. Encouragement was all these young students 
needed to motivate them and to teach them to thrive 
in the future. The fraternity was always looking for 
ways to help the community and better themselves 
along the way. 



The bonds of brotherhood were just one of the many 
great things to rely on in this fraternity. The brother's 
faith and trust in each other allowed for any member to always have someone 
to turn to for advice and encouragement through hardships. The mutual in- 
terests in the members and ability to blend entertainment with charity was 
constantly reached with ease. The Rho had a great desire for step dancing 
and shared their unique dance moves with others across New England. Their 
impressive skills allowed them to turn a fun hobby into a competition and a 
way to raise money for charities. Sigma Phi Rho's drive and enthusiasm to 
volunteer and help others will ensure them continued success well into their 
future lives.

/ believe that the true spirit of Fraternalism is a thing that grows. It 
is first associated almost exclusively with a narrow circle of fellow students, 
but it broadens with a widening understanding until it takes in all the im- 
portant relationships of life. It enters the domain of private life as thoroughly 
as in public life. It teaches the fulfillment of obligations to school, state 
and church, Edward H. McHune, founder and past 
president of Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity once 
theorized. It is not an empty rhetorical statement 
meant to showcase the greatness of the fraternity, 
but rather a way of life for the brothers. 



Founded in 1920, Sigma Tau Gamma's key prin- 
ciples are value, learning, leadership, excellence, 
benefit and integrity. Rooted at Central Missouri 
State University, this 88-year-old organization was 
created by veterans of World War I and includes 
135 chapters with more than 75,000 alumni ranging 
from famous comedians to top government of- 
ficials. The chapter currently established at UMass 
Dartmouth only came to fruition in 1995 but has 
already shaped the university greatly. 

One of the most well-known Greek happenings 
on campus, the White Rose Ball, is organized 
through Sigma Tau Gamma and is named in honor 
of their fraternity flower. In addition to this, 
the frat also puts on an official magazine titled, 
The Saga, to be published quarterly updating 
members of national efforts. Sig Tau especially 
makes their mark on campus life with events such 
as nighttime kickball in the quad, club nights, 
bowling, and rock climbing. 



Not only does Sig Tau make sure the brothers are enjoying and celebrat- 
ing their membership through fun-filled activities, but the fraternity also 
gives back to the community. On a national level, Sigma Tau Gamma takes 
part in BACCHUS (Boosting Alcohol Consciousness Concerning the Health 
of University Students), the organization's official philanthropy. The group 
is completely student-based and focuses on combating alcohol abuse by 
college students through responsibility. Another national program Sig Tau 
has participated in is Books for Kids, which as of 2004, has donated over 
28,000 books and $30,000 to public libraries and school districts where 
fraternities are located. The project was designed in the spirit of tying the 
organization back to its educational roots (as many of the original chap- 
ters were founded at teacher's colleges). 

On a more local level, Sigma Tau Gamma works within the area to promote 
their values through the donation of valuable and necessary funds and 
time. Past charity has included soup kitchen volunteerism sponsored by 
UMD Catholic Campus Ministry and Sodexho food services, where brothers 
served up hot meals for the homeless. The boys have also been a part of 
charity walks with the YWCA and the Fall River Boys and Girls Club, as well 
as the Relay for Life. 

With their core values in place, the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity has found- 
ed a chapter at UMD based on brotherhood, philanthropy and entertainment 
that very much echoes the noble creed of its founders.

Leaders who passionately serve their society, fraternity, and God 



Phi Kappa Theta was founded on the basis of one principle: to break 
the stereotype of fraternities. While the fraternity was founded nationally 
in 1889, the Massachusetts Kappa Theta Chapter of Phi Kappa Theta was 
founded on April 20, 2002. Two years later, on 
October 9th, the fraternity received a charter from 
their national headquarters, making them the only 
chapter of Phi Kappa Theta to become national in 
less than two and a half years. 



for the Children's Hospital in Boston. The general public would be able to 
place quarters into the machine, which would benefit the hospital. 



Starting from nothing in 2002, Phi Kappa Theta has 
grown to become the largest fraternity on campus. 
There are a total of 91 members, including alumni, 
and 45 active members. 

The brothers of Phi Kap strive to combine their 
social lives, and academics, with their sense of 
brotherhood and mutual respect. Their new mem- 
bers are expected to retain all of these qualities. 

Adam Acorn, president of Phi Kappa Theta said, 
None of us came to college with the intention of 
joining a fraternity; however these are people I can 
identify with - guys I will consider my friends and 
family forever. Phi Kap's for life - not just a four 
year organization. I'm still going to be a part of it 
when I'm old and have kids. 

Displaying a sense of community, the brothers 
have worked on various philanthropy projects, with 
their national philanthropy being the Children's 
Miracle Network. Each year, they have consistently 
raised funds towards the betterment of local chil- 
dren's hospitals. The brothers also have thought 
to work with a steel company to design a display 



Other projects Phi Kappa Theta has participated in are Relay for Life and 
multiple Juvenile Diabetes Walks. In 2008, the brothers raised approximately 
$2,000 for Relay and another $2,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund. 
In addition to fundraising, members of Phi Kappa Theta have also partici- 
pated in clean-ups for churches in New Bedford, and have volunteered in 
local soup kitchens. 

When the brothers weren't busy with philanthropy or academics, they could 
often be found playing video games, football, street hockey, basketball, 
or just hanging around the Campus Center. We're pretty diverse. You can 
always find a handful of people that would do anything with you, said Adam. 

Although the brothers are very different, they all share the same common 
goal and bond. Their motto is give, expecting nothing thereof. Each member 
values good morals, shares a fraternal duty to men, an intellectual duty to 
self and parents, a social duty to society, and a spiritual duty to God. 

Any of us would drop anything to help out a brother. We are there for each 
other. I can call up any brother anytime, and he 'II drive hours to come help 
me if I ever needed him to, said Adam. 

Sharing the same common goal and an unbreakable bond, the brothers take 
pride in themselves, each other, and their fraternity. Phi Kappa Theta has 
made a difference in the lives of others while bettering the community, 
and values of giving and brotherhood have been embedded its members. 
Going into the future, the brothers will always support each other. As 
Adam said, Phi Kap's for life.

Founded nationally on December 4, 1906 on the campus of Cornell 
University in Ithaca, New York, Alpha Phi Alpha was the first intercollegiate, 
predominantly black fraternity. Since its founding, Alpha Phi Alpha has initi- 
ated over 185,000 men into the organization and has been open to men of all 
races since 1940. 

The fraternity was established out of a need for black students to come 
together and help each other. Because the half-dozen African American 
students at Cornell during the school year of 1904-05 did not return the 
following year, the incoming students in 1905-06 bid themselves together 
to ensure they each would survive in the racially hostile environment. 

Since then the brothers have set outstanding examples of scholarship, lead- 
ership, and tenacity. Throughout the years, Alpha Phi Alpha has continued 
to supply voice and vision to the struggle of African Americans and people 
of color around the world, while leading the fight for civil rights. 

Alpha Phi Alpha was founded locally in the fall of 2008, however, the frater- 
nity had previously existed on campus prior to the spring of 1996 when the 
last of its members had graduated and left the university. 

Yemi Arunsi served as the president of Alpha Phi Alpha in 2009, and 
has worked to build up the local chapter on campus. There are currently 
three other brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha at UMass Dartmouth besides 
himself; Chukunma Onujiogu, Kerby Pierre Louis, and Rodeler Youte. 

The brothers share a sense of community and have adopted the fraternity's 
cardinal principles of manly deeds, scholarship, and love for all mankind. 



Alpha Pi Alpha 

Developing leaders, promoting brotherhood 



One philanthropy project they have worked on is a program called Go to 
High School, Go to College, where the four members have mentored African 
American high school students and encouraged them to be all they can be 
and to seek a college education. 

The brothers of Alpha Phi Alpha attend an annual district conference in 
which their step team competes. They also participate in rhetorical contests, 
which teach the brothers how to speak correctly while improving their 
oratory skills. Working with their sister sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha, which 
is located in Providence, the brothers have hosted many events including 
forums about sex education. 

When they are not working on various projects, one activity the brothers 
enjoy is strolling. Yemi described this as coordinated rhythmic movements 
to dance moves performed in a line. The members also like to go bowling 
and attend social parties together. 

Alpha Phi Alpha gave me the opportunity to stand out as a leader, said 
Yemi, / grew up with a lot of people who were involved in Greek life and 
that influenced me to want to be a part of it also. 

Yemi said he was also influenced a lot by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and 
W.E.B. Du Bois, who were both former members of Alpha Phi Alpha. 

Other brothers include Olympian Jesse Owens, Justice Thurgood Marshall, 
Frederick Douglass, and Cornell West. These important figures are role 
models for future chapters and pledges, who show them how much they 
are capable of. With all the leadership and history embedded within the 
fraternity, Alpha Phi Alpha is sure to grow as it continues to value brother- 
hood and community while bettering the lives of others.

Dedicating her time to improve our community

Greek Life was a big part of student life on cam- 
pus, but how many of us can say we helped to 
establish one of these organizations? That was 
exactly what Connie DeCourcey did in 2007. She 
enjoyed the greek life on campus, but felt there 
were not enough sororities being offered. Connie 
and a few of her close friends decided to make 
a change and IDN was born. 

Connie had to juggle a busy schedule with her 
studies in English, Psychology, and all her extra 
curricular activities. Her motivation allowed 
her to accomplish great things at school while 
helping the greater good. Her list of activities 
and achievements goes on; she is President/ 



Founder of lota Delta Nu, an RA leader in the 
Cedar Dell South, a tutor at the Writing and 
Reading Center, and President of UMADD (UMass 
against Drunk Driving). Although her plate 
was full with work she felt that being involved 
made the college experience more profound. 

Looking back on her college career, Connie 
believed her favorite memory was the very 
first general interest meeting for lota Delta 
Nu. Over 60 people came that day and it repre- 
sented all the effort she put into setting up 
the organization, lota Delta Nu is known for 
donating to the Room to Read, YMCA, and 
the Walk for Autism. 



Her passion for Greek Life is everlasting. She 
would like it to always be apart of her life and 
believed that she would still come back to 
sorority events and dances well into the future. 
After graduation she would like to study Law 
in California. Connie would also like to tell 
students to remember to, take what you learned 
and embrace it. She is destined for success 
with a sociable personality, and an enthusiasm 
to accomplish and take on more challenges.

Giving special meaning to their Greek letters through heartfelt efforts to improve society 




Often times when we walked to class our eyes would catch brightly 
colored sweatshirts, T-shirts, or messenger bags with unique Greek symbols. 
To the observer, these letters were just a simple way of defining an organi- 
zation, but to a member of Greek Life, they were so much more. 

These letters weren't just for anyone to wear. A student pledging cannot 
wear the letters until they become an official brother or sister of Greek 
Life. The significance of these letters displayed the dedication and pride in 
the organization. They also acted as a promise to continuously better the 
community and represented the everlasting bond of the group. The sisters 
of Phi Sigma Sigma understood the power these Greek letters held. During 
special meetings they would sew Greek symbols on bags or T-shirts to 
tangibly display their pledge. 

Phi Sig was created in 1913 and established on campus in 1996. It was 
one of the first sororities brought to campus and became an instant hit. 
The sisters were eager to make Greek Life a part of their college lives. 
It was part of the Theta Sigma Chapter and lived by the Diokete Hupsala 
motto, which means Aim High in Greek. These sisters strived to do their 
best at school and in the community; always setting goals and taking on 
new challenges. 




Philanthropy was very important to the sisters and they put a lot of time and 
effort into assisting others. Phi Sig donated to the National Kidney Founda- 
tion and locally made contributions to the Boys and Girls Club. In addition 
to these, the sisters also raised money for UNICEF and annually participated 
in the Relay for Life. Activities like these were what brought the girls so 
close together. They all came to love helping others and making a difference 
in the world. 

Whenever the sisters were asked to describe the best thing about being 
apart of Phi Sig, they would always discuss their outstanding sisterly bond. 
This was most enjoyable to them because it was someone to look up to, 
turn to when you needed help or someone to just be a great friend. Phi 
Sig was unique because it was made up of a diverse group of people. This 
allowed for a new outlook or perspective on various issues and made the 
sisterly bond even stronger. Phi Sigma Sigma taught the girls how to grow 
and become women. It gave them a new attitude on life and taught them 
excellent skills and behaviors to practice well into the future.

Mixing fun with philanthropy to achieve the perfect balance of sisterhood 



In 2007, five women set out to create an organization that was unique- 
ly tailored for the wants and needs of all their members. Johanna Hobin, 
Connie DeCourcey, Michelle Hall, Meghan Thompson, and Julie Raimondi 
formed the sorority of lota Delta Nu at UMass Dartmouth with the idea 
that through the bonds of sisterhood, the girls could create a unique support 
system made entirely of their peers. Immediately gaining resounding 
membership, it became obvious that the founding five were not the only 
young women on campus seeking common kinship and understanding. 
With the official motto of the sorority being, Love thy sister, it would be- 
come clear to pledges that they had, in fact, come to the right place. 

lota Delta Nu offers this promise of sisterhood while also providing valuable 
charity work to the community. With the focus of their local philanthropy 
being children's literacy, lota Delta Nu contributes valuable effort to ensure 
that the young minds of the South Coast are adequately educated. Admira- 
bly placing equal importance on the local youth and elderly, the sorority also 
participates in an annual Senior Citizen Banquet. Taking time out from their 
packed schedules, the sisters prepared a hot holiday meal for the elderly. 

Not only has the sisters' time been utilized, but also their feet! lota Delta 
Nu members participate in various fundraising walks for disease research. 
Walking in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life and for autism 
understanding, members strode towards a cure, one step at a time. Through 
their valiant efforts in ensuring that their philanthropy impacted a vast and 
varied segment of the community, lota Delta Nu has truly made their mark 
and touched many hearts. 



While approaching these serious and important issues with all of the grav- 
ity they deserve, lota Delta Nu also keeps the atmosphere of their group 
buoyant and fun-loving. Simply peering at their pledge information table in 
the McLean Campus Center, you notice first, the smiles stretching broadly 
across their faces, freely cracking jokes, and creating a warm and inviting 
atmosphere, while putting hopeful members at ease. For their 2009 Pledge 
Week, the girls hosted many entertaining events ranging from a Grease 
themed dance-off to a speed date style interview session. 

The sisters of lota Delta Nu strive to achieve excellence in leadership, di- 
versity, academics and companionship. Members of the sorority are active 
members of the UMass community and often hold positions in Resident 
Life, athletic teams, the Honor society and community service organizations. 
Through their philanthropy and bubbly spirit, lota Delta Nu not only creates 
a sisterhood amongst themselves, but also betters the school itself. When 
the sorority declares that it shall be a support system for women and shall 
provide a path of self discovery through sisterhood, it truly delivers on their 
mission statement. 



Delta Pi Omega 

A group of women closer than friends — sisters 



Courtney Nunes writer 



Taking part in various philanthropic activities, such as the Rock-A-Wish concert, was one of the many 
ways the sisters of Delta Pi Omega came together as they worked towards bettering the community. 



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

Open to all female students, Delta Pi Omega is a fun, friendly sisterhood of 
women who are serious about education, giving back to the community, and 
building lasting, loyal friendships. The sisters of Delta Pi Omega also look 
to become strong female leaders, and are devoted to trust, honesty, and the 
encouragement of personal growth. Currently there are 68 members in total, 
including 29 active sisters. 

After putting up flyers around campus, dorm storming, and tabling in the 
Campus Center for weeks, members of Delta Pi Omega kept hearing people 
say I'll be there, but when the night came to Rock-A-Wish the sisters were 
surprised to see people lining up an hour before the show. 



In 2008, the first year the Rock-A-Wish concert was held, the sisters raised 
$2,500. Performances by Baylock, Stealing Jane, and HelloMahalo kept 
the crowd dancing all night, and made the show a success. The next year, 
Delta Pi Omega put on another show, as they continued to work towards 
their goal for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. 

Delta Pi Omega has also participated in the Good Night, Sleep Tight program, 
in which the sisters decorate pillowcases for kids and fill them with a journal 
and teddy bear, along with other utilities to be donated to local shelters. 
The sisters have also taken part in the Autism Speaks Walk in Rhode Island, 
where the proceeds benefit the National Alliance for Autism Research. 

It's really fun standing at the finish line, giving high fives to little kids, said 
Kellie, Philanthropy is our main goal. We learn to accept different values 
through our work. 



Other community service projects include Breast Cancer Walks, childcare 
events at the YMCA and YWCA, and working with campus ministry by 
volunteering at local soup kitchens. Along with other sororities and fraterni- 
ties on campus, the women of Delta Pi Omega also participate in Relay for Life every April, and every 
December they attend the Senior Citizen's Banquet. 

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

With all of the philanthropy projects the organization takes part in, there are always situations 
available for the sisters to display and improve their leadership skills. While all of the girls are 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 
interactions. So, not the sorority type? Think again.

Alpha Sigma Tau 

Creating powerful individuals with sisterly bonds that last a lifetime 



Danielle Santoro writer 



College was a time to embark on a new life journey. A place 
to develop your education, meet new people and learn about yourself. 
However being on your own with your family miles away was a wary 
thought for some. Luckily there was a good place to turn for those feeling 
homesick. Alpha Sigma Tau sorority has worked diligently to create a 
close-knit bond between every member of the group. To AST, family was 
extremely vital and treating each other as so was just one of the things 
that made them so exceptional. They stressed closeness so members 
would always feel welcomed to be themselves and build a sisterly bond 
amongst every member. 



Alpha Sigma Tau was originally apart of the Gamma Delta Chapter and 
founded nationally in 1889. The sorority established signature colors that 
were emerald green and gold; colors every AST sister was proud to wear. 
In addition they created a life motto for the sisters to always be, active, 
self-reliant, and trustworthy. These were important aspects to live by be- 
cause it stressed assisting others as well as taking care of yourself. Most 
importantly it also facilitated friendship and making a difference in the 
world. Nationally, AST dedicated its time to the Habitat for Humanity. This 
is a program that allowed for families to get back on their feet. Money 
raised went to new houses for those in need as well as medical supplies 
and food. AST truly displayed how important family was to them by 
assisting this organization. 

In 1999, AST established itself on campus and became an instant success. 
With dedicated members and a passion for change these girls were able 
to establish something amazing. Locally, AST took part in many philanthropic 
activities. They donated to the Pine Mount Settlement School, they also 
participated in the Relay for Life, as well as many other community service 
events in and around the area. 

The sisters of AST understood the importance of values. The contributions 
to society and their dependency on each other had helped them grow 
into mature individuals. Being a member of AST you always had someone 
to turn to for advice, support or help with school. They were all depend- 
able sisters, someone to share fun memories with and experience the un- 
breakable bond of sisterhood. One sorority sister explained how being 
a member of AST sweetened her college experience and made the transition 
into school so much better. A great quote they used to explain their relation- 
ship was friends forever, sisters for life. The AST sorority encouraged growth 
among their members. By being apart of something so important they were 
able to make the most of this life changing experience. These values and 
knowledge they discovered would stick with them throughout the rest of 
their lives.

Cherishing the bonds of sisterhood and transforming the surrounding community 



Attending a school like UMass Dartmouth, students are able to meet 
a number of people from different cultural backgrounds that allowed them 
to expand our understanding of diversity. The concept of diversity stood out 
in the minds of others and a few young Latino women decided to integrate 
this concept into a sorority; One that would stand 
for culture, educate others, as well as motivating 
sisters to come together and make change. Sigma 
lota Alpha caught the attention of many UMD stu- 
dents when it was brought to our campus in 2008. 



SIA was founded nationally in 1990 and established 
on the UMD campus in the fall of 2008. It was one 
of the newest sororities to join Greek Life and 
the sisters often referred to it as the Hermandad 
de Sigma lota Alpha, which was Spanish for the 
sisters of SIA. The symbol of the organization was 
a red rose as well as the colors red, gold, royal 
blue, white, and black. The unique thing about 
SIA was that it focused on promoting unity and 
educating others about their culture as well 
as helping community. Their motto was, Semper 
Unum etlnseparabiliswhkh means Always One 
and Inseparable. The sisters were great role 
models to society as th'ey promoted reliability, 
strived in academics and assisted philanthro- 
pies in and around the area. 



SIA is constantly participating in community service, but as a national 
organization there are three campaigns that they take part in annually. 
These are the red ribbon, gold ribbon, and blue ribbon campaign. The 
red ribbon campaign are fundraisers to support the fight against and 
awareness of AIDS. For the gold ribbon campaign SIA hosts fundraisers 
and support for the Special Olympics, and in the blue ribbon camp- 
aign, SIA participates in the March of Dimes as well as fundraise. 

Their national philanthropy is Our Heartland. Which was a program that 
raised money for HIV/AIDS. It gave children inflicted with the illness a 
chance to participate in the best week of their lives. This fun-filled week 
was crammed with activities and events to give children hope for the 
future. When it comes to helping out local areas, the sisters often tutor 
other students or raise money for local organizations. They truly loved 
making a difference in their world. 

Their outstanding commitment to the community as well as their bond with 
each other made the sorority a great success. It not only taught the girls im- 
portant life lessons but also promised them a friend or better yet a sister for 
life. Being a member of SIA enabled the creation of life-long relationships, 
in depth self discovery, and the importance of being involved in the society. 



The sisters of SIA believed that, An organization is only as strong as 
its members and the impact that each of them has on their respective 
communities. Therefore it was important to always trust one another 
and make the sorority a team effort. This allowed them to accomplish 
many goals in the community.

Looking for a sufficient job and attempting 
to combat all the stress before graduation, was 
a process that often times captured all of our 
attention. However, in the midst of all that worry, 
did we ever stop to think of people going through 
a more serious crisis than our own? 

Participating in charity events and raising money 
for a cause was especially important to Greek 
Life, with each fraternity and sorority supporting 
their own unique philanthropy. Every year all 
the Greek Organizations would come together 
and combined their efforts to assist one very 
important cause. Cancer affected over 10 million 
people in the United States alone and still had 
no official cure. Relay for Life was a local event 
that allowed people to raise money for the ill- 
ness and create additional awareness. On April 
18, 2009 all the Greek sororities, fraternities and 
anyone else interested in participating would 
camp out in the UMD quad. At least one member 
from each team was constantly walking a lap 



around the quad until the 16-hour event came to 
an end. It was always a great way to bond with 
members and support an important foundation. 

Greek Life also contributed to many local and 
national organizations. The fraternities of Chi Phi, 
Sigma Phi Rho, Sigma Tau Gama and Alpha Phi 
Alpha dedicated their time and effort to encour- 
aging children in school. They tutored children 
and participated in events to raise money for 
Books for Kids. They would personally mentor 
young students and persuade them to continue 
their education through the college level, so they 
could succeed in the future. 

The remaining fraternities of Phi Kappa Theta 
and Theta Delta Chi spent their time raising 
money for other philanthropies. Phi Kappa Theta 
donated to the Children Miracle Network, which 
supported many children's hospitals. Theta Delta 
Chi raised money for cancer research through 
their memorable Polar Plunge events. 



The sororities on campus also enjoyed improv- 
ing the community. Alpha Sigma Tau contributed 
to the Habitat for Humanity to help people in 
the local community get back on their feet, while 
other sororities worked on spreading aware- 
ness about various illnesses. Sigma lota Alpha 
collected money for AIDS research and Delta 
Ph Omega for Autism research. The goal of lota 
Delta Nu and Phi Sigma Sigma was helping 
to enrich the lives of children by contributing to 
the Boys and Girls Club and raising money for 
children's literacy. 

Each organization specialized in its own charity 
with their overall goal being to help others 
who were in need. They constantly strived to 
reach their goals while creating awareness 
in the community.

Allison DeAngelis 

Made the most of all of life's challenges by displaying dedication and commitment 



Jenna Rodrigues photographer 
Danielle Santoro writer 



<^ 





Scrimshaw 2009

When school work, extra curricular activities, 
and jobs were at their busiest, we would often 
wonder how we would ever get through those 
hectic days. However, Allison DeAngelis had 
multitasking down to a science and was able to 
successfully maintain an overloaded schedule 
throughout her college career. 

Allison came to UMD with passion for Graphic 
Design/Art History. Her initial reaction was to 
make the most of her college career by getting 
involved. Tennis had been an interest of hers 
since the young age of eight. She dedicated her 
time and energy to the sport, qualifying her for 
the UMD Tennis team as a freshman. 



Allison was a genuine leader and friendly person, 
quickly gaining approval from her teammates 
and was later elected captain of the UMD Tennis 
team in Spring 2008. As captain she strived to 
be a superior role model to her teammates and 
stressed the importance of staying close, hoping 
to increase the team's ability to work together. 
Her diligent efforts proved to be triumphant when 
the Tennis Team won its Division League as well 
as the Championship in 2008. 

Off the court, Allison was just as much commit- 
ted to other areas of her life as she was to her 
tennis career. On campus, she was a sorority 
sister of lota Delta Nu, the director of promotions 



for Campus Activities Board (CAB), a member of 
the tennis club, a secretary of the Graphic Design 
Club, and a participant on the Student Athletic 
Advisory Committee (SAAC). In addition, she 
also volunteered her time in the community, read- 
ing to children and assisting in art projects at the 
Hasbro Children's Hospital in Providence. 

The main lesson college had brought to Allison 
was that, you always have to make the most of 
everything you have because you can go any- 
where in life. Her commitment to the community 
and her own colleagues will be great traits to 
prepared her for what will be a flourishing future.

The 2009 Scrimshaw, volume 88 was produced from August 2008 to June

and printed by Friesens in Altona, Manitoba. Paul Friesen served as the 
Friesens Yearbook Consultant. 

This book is printed on 100 pound Sterling ultra gloss paper and the cover 
is printed on OPP Matte paper with UV Spot Gloss provided by the Friesens 
Book Division. The press run from volume 88 of the Scrimshaw is roughly 
1,700 copies. Printing cost for this book was approximately $ 27,576.40. 

Senior Portraits and were taken by Herff Jones Photography based in 
Bensalem, PA. Caren Orlick Korin was the photography representative. 

The cover, endshe'et, dividers, and layouts were designed by 
Katelyn Marcotte. 

Copy fonts used are: 

Univers (cover, dividers, headlines in body text) 

All photographs were obtained digitally by the Scrimshaw Photography 
Staff using a Canon Digital Rebel EOS XT and Canon Rebel EOS XSI. 



Production took place on two Apple PowerMac G5 Dual 2 Ghz computers 
running OS X, Adobe InDesign CS3 and Adobe Photoshop CS3.

chusetts Darmouth, and its preceding Universities since 1922. The editorial
