UMass Lowell is located in the historic industrial city of Lowell, 25 minutes northwest of 
Boston; the campus spans more than 125 acres along the Merrimack River. More than 12,000 
resident and commuter students of all backgrounds pursue bachelor's, master's, and doctoral 
degrees. For more than a century, the University of Massachusetts Lowell has been educating 
students to work in the real world, solve real problems, and help real people.

Inset: Former University 
President William Bulger 

Dr. Jack Wilson, formerly the interim president of UMass, is now the permanent president of the entire university 
system after being appointed by the Board of Trustees last Wednesday. The decision was met with mixed 
reactions from members of the UMass community, mostly due to the suddenness of the meeting to 
nominate the president. The Presidential Search Committee said before that the next president would 
not be in office until July 1 so as to coincide with the next fiscal year. UMass Lowell Provost Dr. John 
Wooding said he accepted the board's decision: "We will be happy to support the new president of the UMass 
system." Wooding' s comment was mirrored by Vice Chancellor Frederick Sperounis, who said, "We are looking 
forward to continuing our collaboration of working with the UMass system." The meeting occurred without having 
all of the trustees present, and was prompted when Worcester Polytechnic Institute announced Wilson as a finalist for 
their vacant presidency. Wilson's appointment came with little surprise because The Boston Globe ran two articles 
earlier last week, stating the position was down to two candidates: Wilson and Alan Solomont, a 
prestigious fundraiser for the Democratic Party. The Globe reported that an anonymous search 
committee member said the board favored Wilson. The committee said they would release a list of 
the top contenders for the position, but the trustees planned a meeting for March 30 to nominate 
Bulger's successor. They then prompted the emergency meeting for last Wednesday and appointed 
Wilson. Wilson fills the shoes of former UMass president William Bulger, who resigned at a 
meeting at UMass Lowell last August. Bulger was the UMass President for seven years until he 
came under pressure from Governor Mitt Romney to step down. Romney targeted Bulger for 
various reasons, including Bulger's ties to his fugitive mob boss brother, James "Whitey" Bulger. 
According to the Globe, William Bulger, Romney, and Board of Trustees Chairwoman Grace Fey 
all supported the boards' decision to appoint Wilson as the new president. UML Student Trustee 
Matthew Morand, who represents the students of UMass Lowell to the Board of Trustees, attended 
the meeting. "I'm not disappointed that Wilson is in. He is fantastic... he is highly regarded," 
Morand stated. According to Morand, the Search Committee had about 100 nationwide candidates 
for the position, and had narrowed it down to twelve. The identities of the candidates were supposed 
to be kept secret, but it was leaked to the press that Wilson and Solomont were finalists. Morand 
said biographies were handed out to the trustees at 4 pm on Wednesday. Morand said at least eight of the trustees 
supported Wilson, and three of them abstained from voting. "There was a definite opinion that Wilson was the best 
candidate," Morand said about the majority of the trustees. Only two of the five student trustees were allowed to 
vote. This year, UMass Boston and UMass Dartmouth each get a vote. Last year it was Amherst and Lowell. Neither 
of the two trustees voted. "Some people had concerns that they did not know [Solomont]," said Morand. When 
asked how he would have voted, Morand said he would have abstained because it was clear Wilson would win, 
which he was not against, but he said he did not know enough about Solomont to make a valid decision between the 
two. Solomont graduated from the former University of Lowell and has donated money to UML in the past, and 
Solomont Way on South Campus is named for him. Morand said he thought it would have been good for UMass 
Lowell if Solomont were the president. One thing that made the trustees skeptical about Solomont was his strong tie 
to the Democratic Party, which some thought could create problems with the Republican governor. Solomont was a 
head fundraiser for President Bill Clinton and has raised money for Senator John Kerry's presidential campaign. 
Solomont is an entrepreneur in the health care industry. "Solomont was a non-conventional candidate," said Morand. 
Romney urged the search committee to seek non-conventional candidates outside of academia, including business 
leaders from around the country. One of the reasons why many people felt it was important to get a non-conventional 
president was because they hoped to get a strong leader that could raise money through business negotiations. When 
asked what he thought about the search committee's process, which included a nation-wide search and paying 
$90,000 to search committee member William Funk to act as a consultant for the recruitment process, and sticking 
with Wilson, Morand said, "I don't think the committee had an agenda to make it hometown guys. I think the two 
candidates are both outstanding and that is why they made it. . . he [Wilson] is very familiar with academia and very 
qualified to be the president."Dr. Robert Tamarin, UML Dean of Science, said, "I've met Jack Wilson four or five 
times, he is a brilliant physicist. He's got a real vision for the university. I'm prepared to give him a chance." Tamarin 
said. When asked about the board's decision to pick Wilson over Solomont, Tamarin said, "I think Wilson came here 
on his own merits. . .1 don't see any politics in this." Tamarin has also met Solomon. "He's been very generous to our 
university. I really have no opinion about him one-way or the other," Tamarin said. Faculty Union President and 
Mechanical Engineering professor Dr. Robert Parkin said he was happy Wilson was selected for the position. "I think 
the trustees did the right thing. . .Even though Solomont is one of ours, I think the feeling of the faculty is that we 
want an academic and someone who knows what goes on in academia," he said. The news of Wilson's appointment 
did indeed come with mixed reactions. Some faculty members at UML criticized the search committee and the Board 
of Trustees for speeding up the selection process and keeping Wilson in office, but those sources did not want to be

UML Halloween Fun 
By Robert Moreau 
Connector Contributor 

On Thursday and Friday, October 
30 th and 31 st , UMass-Lowell hosted 
various activities in celebration of 
Halloween. The most prominent was 
the Safe Zone Trick or Treating hosted 
at Concordia and Sheehy Halls on 
South Campus, lasting from 6-8 p.m. 
The purpose of the Safe Zone Trick or 
Treating was to give the children of 
Lowell elementary schools and their 
families a safe place to trick-or-treat. 
As Concordia Resident Director Beth 
Willis noted "Some parents don't like 
to send their kids out at night to 
strangers, and we figured this would be 
a safe place to have fun." 

The festivities also included various 
activities such as a doughnut-eating 
contest, professional face painting, and 
a haunted house hosted by the Off- 
Broadway Players. 

On Friday, from 10-2 p.m., other 
Halloween activities took place on 
Southwick Hall on North Campus, and 
McGauvran Hall on South. They 
included a photographer and tarot card- 
reading psychics. Prizes were handed 
out to people wearing costumes. 

Overall, Halloween 2003 was a very 
fun time for both UML students and 
the greater Lowell community. 9

the joys of driving 

The city of Lowell has confirmed that the 
University Avenue Bridge will be repaired and 
re-opened in September, just in time for fall 
semester to begin. Since the beginning of 
December, the bridge has been closed to all 
vehicular traffic because it was believed that the 
weight of buses and trucks would weaken the 
bridge. Because of this, Lowell residents have 
had to deal with countless changes in their 
every day commute. By this time, Lowell 
residents have become accustomed to the 
inevitable traffic jams due to the closing of one 
of the most crucial bridges in Lowell. UMass 
Lowell shuttle buses have had to take new 
routes. UML students living on East Campus 
have had to learn to plan their schedules around 
rush hour, especially between 3pm and 6pm; 
when both lanes on the Aiken Street Bridge are 
reserved for one-way traffic heading towards the 
VFW Highway. This has caused the traffic on 
O'Donnell Bridge to increase dramatically. 
UMass Lowell Dean of Students, Thomas Taylor 
had believed originally that students would not 
be allowed to walk over the University Ave 
Bridge, but luckily it is safe enough and 
students living on East have been able to walk 
to and from their classes on North Campus 
without having to worry about the extended 
time it would take the shuttle bus to make the 
loop all the way around to North. When the 
University Avenue Bridge had originally 
closed, the presence of countless Police 
directing traffic was absolutely necessary to 
keep order in the city. Understandably, there 
was mass confusion and frustration amongst 
commuters. According to City manager John 
Cox, now that it is about three months since the 
bridge has closed, "we need less police 
presence." At the intersection of the O'Donnell 
Bridge and the VFW Highway, there has been a 
noticeable lack of police officers directing 
traffic. According to Cox, they "have stopped 
detail because it costs too much money." There 
still are traffic police, but not as many, and only 
at certain times of the day. The Lowell Police 
Officers are taken off the road and put on duty to 
direct traffic. This project is expected to cost 
the City of Lowell $750,000- $800,000. The 
city is currently petitioning for federal money, 
but for now it will come out of the city's budget.

Hitting the books...FlNALS 

There you sit, in an uncomfortable wooden chair, in a classroom, somewhere on campus. You've been through a lot this semester, tests, quizzes, and papers all 
trying to keep you from the end of the line. And now you sit in your chair, clutching your mechanical pencil, which is almost out of lead, as a line of sweat begins 
to form on your forehead. You prepare to launch your attack, a volley of answers, in hopes of defeating the 120 multiple choice questions that lay between you 
and summer. That's right, the final exam, the last line of defense the enemy has between you and your semester mission objective: no more pencils, no more 
books, and no more professor's dirty looks. Now the only thing creeping through your mind is the hope that you are well enough prepared to survive this one last 
battle, and snatch victory from the hands of defeat. But keep your head high soldier, because we'll tell you how to get the leg up on the enemy, and come out of 
this alive and on top. Summer is creeping up fast, and so are those final exams. They've crept up fast enough that most students didn't even realize it until a week 
ago. Final projects are being assigned, and professors are collecting their last homework assignments. As schedules become more and more hectic, it's important to 
remember to put aside some time, even now, to start preparations for your finals. Start looking over notes, cleaning out folders, and reviewing test materials. You 
should try to avoid cramming and all-nighters at all costs. Going into a test tired is one of the worst things you can do. It's harder to recall information if you're 
tired. The night before an exam, you should try to put in as many hours of sleep as possible (within reason of course) so that you can have a sharp, refreshed 
mind when it comes to test time. Also, utilize any tricks or techniques you know to help you remember material. You will have a lot of information to remember, 
and it helps to exploit any tricks you know short of cheating to help you remember it all. Most importantly, don't get too stressed out. Stress piled on top of all 
that studying can lead to a lot of unhappy hours at the books, so once again, space the studying out over a couple nights, reviewing your materials more then 
once. Heck, throw on some music while you study, and let the sweet soothing sounds cut down on your study time tension. Or if music isn't your thing, take 
breaks here or there for gaming, an episode of Seinfeld, or just to relax. It's hard to keep up a good work ethic with the summer approaching so fast. The warm 
weather and longer days are beckoning you to drop the books and come outside. But keep in mind that if you don't wait till the last minute, you can have both 
good grades on your exams and fun outdoors. And after the multiple choice questions that stand between you and summer lay crumpled, defeated by your 
knowledge of the subject, you've got 3 and a half months to do whatever pleases you, without having to worry about deadlines.

women's field hockey 

The field hockey team enjoyed its most special season in school history, which included an appearance in the NCAA championship match 
is well as the Northeast- 1 Tournament title. The River Hawks overcame a three-match slide to end the regular season to defeat Bentley (3-2 on 
>enalty strokes) in the NE-10 Tournament semifinal, and regular season champion Bryant in the final (2-1 ). The championship secured UML's 
nclusion and hosting rights of the NCAA Tournament semifinal and final. UML moved on to defeat Bryant in the semifinal, 1-0, before losing to 
:ight-time champion Bloomsburg in the final, 4- 1 . 

Nevertheless, there were plenty of postseason honors, especially for the trio of junior Jacklyn Driscoll and seniors Martha Marsden and 
atrice Mendoza, each of whom were named All-Americans by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (1MFHCA). In addition, second- 
rear head coach Shannon Hlebichuk was named the NFHC A Division II Coach of the Year and Northeast- 1 Coach of the Year. Mendoza was 
lamed the NE-10 Goalkeeper of the Year for the second straight year and joined Driscoll and Marsden on the All-NE- 1 first team. Cited to the 
econd team was first-year sophomore Joanna DaLuze and senior Laura Petros. 

The River Hawks tied or achieved several school records, including games played (23, formerly 20), goals against average in a season 
1.12, formerly 1.13) and wins in a season ( 1 5), tying the mark originally set in 1 997. 


men's hockey 

The hockey team's finish in 2003-04 - 1 0-23-7 overall 
and 7-12-5 (sixth place) in Hockey East - does not reflect 
its progress and the current direction of the program. 
Midway through the year, the River Hawks were forced to 
forfeit five victories due to the use of an ineligible player. 
At the time, UML was 12-11-3 overall and 7-4- 1 in Hockey 
East (fifth place), but then slipped to 7- 1 6-3 and 4-7- 1 in 
HE (tied for seventh), en route to a first-round exit in the 
HE Tournament. 

Despite their misfortune, all the tools for a special 
season are in place as the River Hawks will suit 1 1 juniors, 
1 sophomores, four freshman and two seniors on the 
2004-05 roster, several of which earned decorations in the 
2003-04 season. Sophomore Elias Godoy was named to the 
Hockey East Honorable Mention squad while freshmen 
Cleve Kinley and Jason Tejchma were cited to the All- 
Rookie Team. 

Additionally, the River Hawks placed six players 
among the Hockey East All-Academic Team, the second- 
highest amount behind Maine, who had seven. Cited were 
classmates Tejchma, Chris Fontas and Brian Bova, along 
with sophomores Matt Collar and Bobby Robins and 
junior Niklas Storm. Fontas and Tejchma along with 
UMass's Peter Trovato, had the highest grade point 
averages by position.

The surprise of the fall season, and arguably the Northeast- 10 Conference, the UML volleyball 
team enjoyed its second straight invitation and third bid to the NCAA Tournament in four years 
despite losing 75 percent of its offense and defense from the 2002 squad which posted a 25-1 1 

The River Hawks won their last four matches - including a pivotal 3-2 victory over Bentley - 
to secure the sixth and final spot for the NCAA Tournament Northeast Regional. An ever-resilient 
team, the four-match win skein followed a stretch in which the River Hawks lost four of six. 

Despite a first-round exit from the NCAA Tournament, the play of sophomore OH Julie 
Handy and senior setter Andrea Turner lifted UML to another second-place finish in the NE-10 
regular season. Both Handy and Turner were named all-conference first team selections while 
sophomore Katye Larson was a third team recipient. 

A four-time all-conference player (Northeast- 1 in 2000, '01 and '02, NECC in 1999), Turner 
also earned All-Northeast region honors for the fourth successive time while Handy joined her, 
making her first appearance. Both were also named AVCA honorable mention All- Americans.

men's track & field 

Buoyed by the success of another stellar cross country season, the men's indoor and outdoor track and field teams again 

enjoyed a terrific year which included a best-ever third-place finish in the New England outdoor championships as well as a 

fifth-place showing at the New England Indoor meet. 

Sophomore Patrick Morasse highlighted the indoor season as he earned All-American honors at the NCAA

Despite a 4- 1 0- 1 season ( 3- 1 0- 1 in the NE- 1 0), the 
women's soccer team achieved a pair of school records, including 
shutouts (five) and goals allowed in a single season (28, tying the 
record set in 2000). Individually, senior goalkeeper Darcy 
Hornberger broke the school record for fewest goals allowed 
with 27, beating the previous record of 28 also set in 2000. 

The defensive play of sophomore Caitlin Leary, junior 
Stacy Lukason and senior Sarah Wroblewski, along with 
freshman Michaela Rufo, deserved plaudits for making those 
records stand. Offensively, junior midfielder Marielle Christofi 
led UML in scoring with four goals and one assist (nine points) 
while freshman Tricia Auld (2-3-7) and sophomore Audrey 
Bertalovitz (2-2-6) also chipped in.

The men's soccer team continued its ascent to the top of the NCAA 
New England Region and earned national recognition with its best season 
in school history. The River Hawks peaked over the second half of the 
regular season and in the postseason, winning the Northeast- 1 Tournament 
with a 3-2 victory at Southern Connecticut (after trailing 2-0). 

UML continued its late-season surge in the NCAA Tournament - its 
first-ever appearance - with victories over Franklin Pierce (3-0) and Southern 
Connecticut (1-0) on Owl turf. The postseason run ended in the NCAA 
Quarterfinal when the River Hawks suffered a 2-0 loss at Dowling in Oakdale, 

The loss could not spoil what was a splendid season full of accolades 
as the River Hawks won 10 of their last 12 matches. Many school records 
were set, among them victories (15) and fewest losses (5, tied) and games 
played in a season (22); most goals scored in a game (1 1, tied) and a season 
(68 ), and fewest goals in a season (21). 

Juniors Jonathan Curran and Jason Paige were each named NSC AA 
Second Team All- Americans while senior Michael Cabral became the second 
player in UML history to sign a professional contract (with the Phantoms of 
New Hampshire). All three players were also NSC AA New England Region 
first team members. 

The threesome led a best-ever seven players on the NE- 1 all-star teams. 
Curran was named the Defensive Player of the Year while Jason Paige earned 
the 2003 NE- 1 Golden Ball award for most goals against NE- 1 competition.

With the loss of four starters, the women's 
basketball team fell victim to its grueling late 
season schedule - in which it lost 10 of its last 14 
games - which overshadowed its best start to a

impressive wins throughout the year, including 
those over NE- 10 champion and NCAA 
Tournament semifinalist Merrimack (64-60) and 
PSAC East regular season champion West 
Chester (58-54).

UML Athletics Announces Major Award 


at 2004 Excellence Banquet 

At the conclusion of each academic 
year, during the Excellence Banquet, the 
Department of Athletics brings together 
members of the university's athletic 
community to celebrate the many 
academic, athletic, and humanitarian 
accomplishments of our staff members 
and student-athletes. The evening 
concludes each year with a moving 
tribute to the senior student-athletes. 
Major awards are described here. 

Elad Inbar, a senior from Kiryat Haim, 
Israel, and Patrice Mendoza, a senior 
from Wilmington, MA, were each 
named the Lester H. Cushing Award 
recipients for Male and Female Athletes 
of the Year at the UMass Lowell 
Excellence Banquet. Inbar was named 
the NCAA Division II Player of the 
Year by the National Association of 
Basketball Coaches (NABC) in March 
after he led UML to a 28-6 record 
(17-5 in the Northeast- 10 Conference) 
which included UML's second straight 
NE-10 regular season and tournament 
championships. UML then moved 
on to win its second consecutive 
NCAA Tournament Northeast Region 
championship to secure a trip to the 
Elite Eight in Bakersfield, CA. Inbar 
was named the NE- 1 Tournament Most 
Valuable Player in 2003 and 2004 and 
earned NCAA Tournament Northeast 
Regional Most Outstanding Player 
honors in 2004. The NABC player of 
the year award was the pinnacle of 
many accolades this season for the 6- 
foot-7 standout, who was also named 
the 2003-04 Northeast- 10 Conference 
Player of the Year as well as a first team 
all-conference forward for the third 
straight year. He also garnered Division 
II player of the year honors from the 
Eastern College Athletic Conference 
(EC AC) and All- American status by the 
Basketball Times. Despite UML's 89-82 
loss to Humboldt State in the NCAA 
Tournament Elite Eight, Inbar led all 
scorers with 29 points and became the 
University's all-time leading scorer 
with 2,099 points. He entered the game 
needing 22 points to surpass former 
UML standout John Paganetti (1980-84, 
2,091 points). Along with scoring, Inbar 
solidified himself in many places in the 
UML record book. He finished his career 
first in games played (127, shared with 
teammate Uri Grunwald) and free throws 
made (455); second in 
rebounding (854), field goals made (768) 
and career free throw percentage (.854); 
and fifth among blocked shot leaders 
(124). Inbar is expected to move on to 
a professional career after graduation. 
He was drafted 39th by the Westchester 
Wildfire of the United States Basketball 
League (USBL) on Apr. 1 5, but opted 
to complete his degree. Head Coach 


Ken Barer also fielded several inquiries 
from Marty Blake, the NBA's director 
of scouting, as well as several NBA 
teams during the season. Inbar has also 
been a model student the last four years, 
earning a 3.490 cumulative grade point 
average as a finance major, and will 
graduate in May. 

A two-time All- American, Mendoza 
backstopped the UML field hockey team 
to within a game of the NCAA Division 
II Championship last fall as the River 
Hawks enjoyed their best season since 
1997. UML posted a 15-8 overall record 
and a 12-4 clip in the Northeast- 10, 
good for second place. UML rallied at 
the end of the year, capturing the NE-10 
Tournament title and earning the right to 
host the NCAA Tournament 
semifinals and championship. UML 
defeated Bryant in the semifinal, 1-0, 
but fell to eight-time national champion 
Bloomsburg, 4-1, in the final. Mendoza 
was named the Northeast- 1 Conference 
Goalkeeper of the Year and a first 
team all-conference selection for the 
second straight year. She rewrote the 
goalkeeping records this year, eclipsing 
marks for games in a career (77) and a 
season (22); wins in a career (38) and 
a season (15); as well as shutouts in a 
career (26) and season (10). Mendoza 
capped her senior year with 1 shutouts, 
including 9.5 solo, while posting a goals 
against average of 1 . 12 and a save rate of 
.832 over 22 matches and 1,559 minutes. 
She played a pivotal role in helping the 
River Hawks achieved several team 
records, including games played (23, 
formerly 20) and goals against average 
in a season (1.12, formerly 1.13). She 
also tied the school mark for wins in a 
season (15, originally set in 1997).

became weapons of terror and destruction, and the city of New York suffered the loss of one of its most recognized icons. 

From the signs for the missing at ground Zero, to the gap in the New York City skyline, people across the country felt the 

loss of loved ones and security in America. The sensations from the impact were felt all over the nation, and the University 

of Massachusetts at Lowell realized it in the loss of three students and four of its alumni. Among the many lost were 

Douglas A. Gowell of Methuen, class of 1971, Robert J. Hayes of Amesbury, class of 1987, Brian K. Kinney of Lowell, 

class of 1995, John Ogonowski of Dracut, class of 1972, Patrick J. Quigley IV of Wellesley, Jessica L. Sachs of Billerica, 

and Chrisoper Zarba.. Located on the Riverwalk behind Leitch Hall on residential North, the memorial sculpture was 

chosen from six proposals submitted in the fall shortly after the attacks, and was designed by art students Rebekah 

Hermans, Gail Milligan, and Janet Wittlinger. The central figure of the design is a circular object that represents the 

months of the year, with a special indicator of the attacks in the September portion. It also includes a circular seating 

arrangement, tall Evergreens, grasses and other plants to complete the landscape 

9/11 memorial to be dedicated

Despite the rain, people of all ages came to Family Day for free or 
cheap food and activities also known as fun! Saturday, October 4, 
in the south quad many booths were set up for Family Day which 
was sponsored by so many UMass Lowell clubs its ridiculous to 
list. The purpose of this yearly tradition is to celebrate the family 
role at UMass Lowell. The Psychology Club offered free tarot 
readings, WJUL had CD's and bumper stickers, there were pony 
rides, the Activities Commission had Halloween candy and goods, 
scrubs and sweatshirts, Leitch Hall Council sold donuts, Donahue 
Hall sold popcorn, ISABA had a ring toss, the Connector sold 
your picture mounted in a funny newspaper page, Sheehy Hall sold 
some food like apple pies, cheeseburgers, hamburgers, hot dogs, 
some other food was sold like nachos, pretzels and the Vietnamese 
Student Association sold dinner specials. Regular vendors had 
jewelry, candleholders, and lampshades, Spectrum had temporary 
hair color and free face painting, Eames and Smith Hall Councils 
gathered together to sell meatball subs, MEISA was selling 
sausages, the Art History Club had a raffle for Topsfield Fair 
tickets, Sarah's Crazy Pants. Inside McGauvran itself were a few 
free activities, caricatures by the Local Color Design Studio, 
antique photos by Old Tyme Photos, and spin painting on Frisbees. 
Around one in the afternoon everyone gathered on the lawn in 
front of the McGauvran steps for a magic show which was as 
much comedy as magic, with balancing, disappearing balls, juggling 
and jokes about the children there and about college students. 
Music playing was UML Marching Band in the morning "This 
was our first performance this year and we sounded good" Jared 
Holaday sophomore Music major and the music in the afternoon 
was a jazz-rock trio called One Sweet World. MENC sold 
maracas and tambourines made from paper products and dried 
macaroni, "We have been selling tie dye shirts in past years, but 
this year we decided to sell something related to music" said 
Anthony B. Beatrice the vice president of MENC. Physical 
Therapy had a 50/50 raffle and sold water, their table sold at least 
fifty dollars and was just about the "only place you can get a drink" 
James O'Brien IV who laughed with his friends and club 
members. The Engineering Student Council had free temporary 
tattoos they had a lot of people come by "A lot of little kids come 
by maybe 20 people, and the Spongebob Square Pants tattoos are 
definitely selling the most." said David Harris from the council. 
Abundant Life Fellowship sold cookies that you could decorate 
with frosting and sprinkles and one member saw Family day as a 
great chance to "Get together with friends and meet new people". 
That idea is exactly what any campus is supposed to be about, 
meeting new people and through this friendships are one of the 
best things you can bring away from a college experience.

What would your vagina say? The cast of the third annual UMass 
Lowell rendition of The Vagina Monologues entertained and 
enlightened an audience of over 400 Friday and Saturday night in the 
Mahoney Auditorium. With an introduction ending with the phrase, 
"we were worried about vaginas," it was obvious some monologues 
would be light-hearted, including "Hair, 1 ' "The Flood," and "Vagina 
Happy Fact." The fact simply states that the clitoris has more nerve 
fibers than any other body part in the male and female body. It is also 
the only organ that exists solely for pleasure. More serious aspects 
of the show dealt with female body mutilation, rape and giving birth 
with monologues such as "I Was There in the Room," "My Vagina 
was my Village," and "Not-So-Happy-Fact." One of the most 
memorable moments of the show was Olivia Richard's performance of 
"My Angry Vagina," a piece that kept the audience laughing while 
Richard belted out lines such as, "Thongs, who thought those up? 
. . .they get all up there, in your crusty butt!" Although this 
monologue was meant to be funny, it also dealt with issues such as 
the constant need of society to "clean up" the vagina. Director Anne 
Tremblay also entertained with, "Reclaiming Cunt," a monologue 
about one woman and her need to reclaim the word cunt as positive 
instead of having a connotation negative on women. Audience 
participation was encouraged as the auditorium filled with the 
chanting of the word "cunt." V-Day is a global movement to end 
violence against women and girls. V-Day is a catalyst that promotes 
creative events to increase awareness, raise money, and revitalize the 
spirit of existing anti- violence organizations. It generates broader 
attention for the fight to stop worldwide violence against women and 
girls including rape, battery, incest, female genital mutilation, and 
sexual slavery. The Vagina Monologues is used as a "centerpiece" of 
most V-Day events. It is based on stories collected by author Eve 
Ensler by real women. It helps people who have experienced violence 
know that they are not alone and inspires both men and women to get 
involved in the fight to stop violence again women and girls. "This 
year, we honor Vagina Warriors. Women and men, who have seen 
violence, transformed, dealt with it, mourned it, embraced it - and then 
set out to change it. They are women and men who refuse to bow to 
society's standards. Women and men who persevere and are 
determined to never see another woman battered, another child sold 
into slavery, another woman kidnapped, mutilated, burned, or raped. 
Women and men who did not become disillusioned or desensitized - 
instead they fought back with education, advocacy, policy and social 
change," wrote Erin Sheehan, senior graduate student, in her letter to 
the cast and general public. Sheehan has co-organized the V-Day 
campaign on campus for the past two years and was able to join the 
cast on stage this year. The Clothesline Project set up a display of t- 
shirts made by women affected by rape, incest, hate crimes, and other 
forms of violence. Each color shirt stands for a different category. 
The project began with 3 1 shirts, displayed on the village green in 
Hyannis, Mass., in October 1990 as part of an annual Take Back the 
Night March and Rally. Throughout the day, women came forward to 
create new shirts and the line kept growing. Now it has grown to 
include dozens of projects nationwide and internationally, with an 
estimated 35,000 to 50,000 shirts. The Vagina Crew sold items such as 
Vagina Security t-shirts and chocolate vagina pops. The lollipops 
sold out by intermission on Saturday. Booths set up by Rape Crisis 
Services of Greater Lowell and Alternative House Women's Services 
provided audience members with further information of how to stop 
violence against women. These two important organizations will 
receive part of the money raised through this production. Another 
part will be sent to help the girls and women of Juarez, Mexico.

leadership retreat 


On Friday, October 17, many students bid farewell to the UMass Lowell campus for the weekend and took off in buses for the seacoast. On 
Friday and Saturday, the Leadership Advisory Council sponsored their Annual Leadership Retreat at Camp Bournedale in Plymouth, MA. 
Over thirty students, both active leaders on campus and those interested in assuming more of a leadership role were present for four sessions 
of workshops with topics that ranged from how to run a meeting and public speaking to the Fish Philosophy, a leadership style pioneered by 
a fish market in Seattle. The event, which is organized out of the Office of Student Activities is held regularly and cost attendees $25, a fee 
usually paid by a student organization attendees are affiliated with. Attendee Carrie Kidder, a sophomore Psychology major was enthusiastic 
about attending her first retreat. "I think it's very fun," a smiling Kidder gushed. "It was nice to hear other's opinions," she said, referring to 
the round-table discussions held on the first night. After the two round-table discussions about either campus events or first year programs 
such as Residence Life's LEARN, students were dismissed to their own free time. Most started up board games or fell into small discussions. 
On Saturday morning, students woke to four separate sessions designed to improve leadership skills and potential. Speakers included 
UMass Lowell administration, as well as accomplished student leaders and alumni. Discussions were presented in three different paths, 
ranging from beginner to intermediate and advanced. All three were titled with and followed a cooking theme. All workshops were titled 
similarly, such as "World Cooking" for a diversity seminar and "Finding a Chef for ideas on choosing an advisor. Upon his return to Lowell, 
Matthew St. Marie, a freshman undeclared Engineering major stated, "This was my first [retreat] that I've been on, so I don't have anything 
to compare it to, but I had a lot of fun." Attendees left after dinner on Saturday for a return to Lowell. 



who's who 

Each year, students in more than 2,300 colleges across the country are given the opportunity to 
be recognized for their hard work in the community and their university through one of the oldest 
and most prestigious honors programs in the nation: Who's Who Among Students in American 
Universities and Colleges. In 1934, Pettus Randall conceived this biographical volume that 
recognizes the outstanding performance of college students. Randall believed that college 
students devoted to their schoolwork and to the local community deserve to be recognized for 
their commitment and hard work. Students of UMass Lowell are also given this opportunity 
every year. These are students who enhance the positive image of youth in America through their 
contributions to the school and to the community in and around Lowell. Students eligible for 
applying for Who's Who must be of senior status and have a Grade Point Average of a 2.5 or 
higher. These students should have a deep commitment to serving their community and also must 
have excelled in the classroom in order to be eligible for appreciation of their constant hard work 
and dedication. Students for the Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and 
Colleges this year have already been chosen by a committee of faculty and staff headed by 
Student Services Director Mary Connelly. The committee bases their decision on both their 
personal and professional experiences with the specific students in the classroom and the efforts 
of the students to become involved in the community throughout their time here at UMass 
Lowell. Students who receive this award are given a lifetime use of the Who's Who reference 
service and will be able to receive letters of reference from the program for applications for 
employment. They will also receive a personalized certificate confirming the fact that the Who's 
Who program has honored them. The students who receive this award will also be locally and 
nationally publicized in this year's edition of Who's Who Among Students. Students who receive 
this award will be honored at a brunch on Sunday April 25 th .

From 12p.m.-5p.m. on Friday, April 30, the UMass Lowell community celebrated the 2004 Spring Carnival at the South Campus 
softball field. The event featured booths from almost every organization on campus, as well as other events including a concert 
featuring various bands. Anand Sangvhi, director of the Student Activities Commission, said that the turnout "was the 
biggest... since I've been in office" and that he estimated it to be in the area of 500-1500 people. The annual Spring Carnival event 
has usually been on North Campus, but has taken place on South Campus a few times, including this year. Describing the events, 
Sangvhi said, "We have everything from cultural foods to physical activities to caricature artists, and airbrush artists, to laser tag." 
They had a 28-foot wall for carnival-goers to climb. Participants who successfully climbed the wall were entered in a drawing to 
win a $500 give certificate to Best Buy. Though the contest was originally open only to UML students, the Connector made an 
exception for a nine-year old girl who ended up climbing the wall to the top four times. Several students could not even make it to 
the top once, and the young girl, the daughter of an alumnus, won the $500 prize. The UMass Lowell Crew teams had a booth 
where participants could race on a rowing machine for 250 meters in a contest to win a $10 gift certificate to Wal-Mart. There were 
two gift certificates distributed: one for the fastest men's time and the other for the fastest women's time. The Society of Plastics 
Engineering's booth featured cotton candy for sale as well as a contest for a free T-shirt. Contestants had to guess the number of 
plastic pellets that were placed in a five-gallon polycarbonate water bottle (the correct answer was 1,044,000 pellets). The physics i 
club sold liquid nitrogen ice cream, made from a mixture of half-and-half, sugar, and vanilla extract mixed with liquid nitrogen. 
Liquid nitrogen (also known as LN2) is chilled, condensed, gaseous nitrogen that is colorless, odorless, non-flammable, and non- 
toxic. It boils at -210 degrees Celsius (-324 degrees Fahrenheit), and handling it requires protective gloves and goggles. The 
purpose of adding liquid nitrogen to the mixture of ingredients is to cool it into ice cream state. WUML, the campus radio station, 
had a booth with a wide variety of activities: a free CD giveaway, selling of various merchandise, and a dart game. The station also 
held a live broadcast at the site of the event. The Activities Commission had a "Prize Cube" game, where participants stood inside 
an inflatable cube resembling a slot machine, and had to catch fake money shot up from the ground from an air jet. The more 
amount of money collected, the larger the prize participants could receive. Prizes included flame lamps, light-up drinking mugs, and 
inflatable balls. Many other organizations had also contributed to the event by having booths of their own, with selling of food or 
various activities. Other activities held at the carnival included laser tag and a miniature track where carnival-goers could race 
remote controlled racecars. Throughout the event, the bands The LAB, Floetry, and Talib Kweli were on 
hand to provide music. David DeAngelis, Associate Director of the Activities Commission, said the day 
of the event is "the University Day, it's the day where, ideally, you have students, faculty, and staff 
come together to celebrate another great year at UMass Lowell. "The Student Activities Commission, 
along with the annual Spring Carnival event, plans most major concerts and comedy shows on campus. 
Sangvhi is excited about the progress the organization has made, pointing to the appearances of 
comedians Tracy Morgan, Dane Cook, and Dave Chapelle on campus and saying that the organization "is 
starting to take more risks," and that he is looking for volunteers to help bring "some campus unity."

Senior week is the last time that the graduating students can 
spend time together before graduation. The class of 2004 spent 
their week in grand fashion. They enjoyed an overnight rafting 
trip in Maine. Then, graduates filled the week with a trip to 
Foxwoods Resort and a night at Fenway Park. The seniors 
ended their week with a night on Boston Harbor. This section 

of our book salutes our seniors!
