r ^Si 

The 1991-92 year at the University of 
Maryland, College Park, began as any 
other. Thousands of sun-bronzed students 
poured back onto campus into 
classrooms. Grumbling was heard from 
those students who had to trek all the 
way from Easton Hall to ttie Physics 
building for an eight o'clock class. Shrieks 
of pain and despair could be heard all 
over campus from the Armory as 
students suffered through wait-list or 
drop-add. Yes, another fall had come to 
the University of Maryland. 

This year was different though. The 
campus was marked by many distinctive 
new changes. In an effort to become a 
premier public university in the nation. 
College Park was beseiged by 
remarkable changes. 

Construction was the most prevailing 
mark of change. The newly renovated 
Byrd Stadium was the most distinctive 
mark of construction or, campus. Dor- 
chester Hall was reopened as the Inter- 
national House and the Surge Building 
opened to provide more class spxace. 
Also under construction: McKeldin Library, 
the new Animal Sciences building, the 
new Business building, and the con- 
vergence of Anne Arundel Hall into an 
honors residence hall. 

Other distinctive changes were caused 
by the massive budget cuts which hit the 
campus. Class sizes were larger and 
fewer sections were offered due to the 
cutbacks. Students were targeted with 
tuition hikes in order to alleviate some of 
the budget deficit. These changes, along 
with the yearly gripes about parking and 
textbook costs, generated some mixed 
feelings about the university. 

Although the budget cuts severely 
dampened students spirits, the University 
of Maryland continued its drive to 
become "A Mark of Distinction" 
throughout the country. 

UMCP's Distinctive Marks 

'The fall 1990 freshman class recorded 
the highest average SAT score in history. 

'College Park enrolls students from all 
50 states and the District of Columbia, 
and 111 countries. 

'The seven College Park libraries hold 
more than two million volumes, more 
than 22,000 periodical and newspaper 
subscriptions and some four million 
pieces of microfilm. 

*The campus has over 350 academic, 
administrative, residence, laboratory and 
maintenance buildings on 1,350 acres. 

'The total fall enrollment was 34,837.

Student life 

Whether it was cheering for a favorite 
sports team, cramming in Hornbake's 
24-hour study room, strolling across 
McKeldin Moll, taking part in a protest, or 
just hanging out at the Union, UM student 
life took on various characteristics. 

Students came to the University of 
Maryland from all 50 states and 111 coun- 
tries; bringing with them their distinct 
cultural, religious, social, political and 
academic interests. Plus, 300 clubs and 
organizations helped develop a variety 
of these interests and more. 

All over campus, UM students found ac- 
tivities to express their own distinctive 
style. Some took part in theatrical or 
dance performances and athletic teams. 
Some wrote for campus publications. 
Others chose working on campus to help 
balance their academic schedules and 
pay their bills. Many joined fraternities and 
sororities; and still others just took part in 
every UM students pastime, partying! 

Whatever the interest, hobby, or activi- 
ty, UM students did their best this year to 
make their own "Mark of Distinction" on 
College Park. 

September Btues 

The beginning of September comes 
with the start of a fresh, new school year. 
Perhaps it is full of anticipation, eagerness, 
anxiety or a sense of uncertainty for what 
lies ahead. Unfortunately, this also means 
an end to the carefree days of fun, sun, 
parties, beaches, and relaxation. 

Making the transition from those 
problem-free summer months to the 
routine of classes, hard work, and 
headaches can be difficult. 

Those first hours, days, and weeks are 
crucial in starting off the year on the right 
foot. It is then that our "dream" unfolds. 
On the first day of classes, one manages 
to make it to class on time, perhaps five 
or ten minutes early, as they are all within 
close walking distance from each other. I 
one decides to drop a class or switch 
sections, a simple trip to the Mitchell 
Building is no problem! Strolling up the 
counter, the schedule changes go 
through without a single hitch. What an 

Buying books is the next task. One walks 
into the book store and meanders down 
the deserted isles to pick up the books -- 
finding numerous used copies. 

Commuters go to the Department of 
Campus Parking to buy a permit. Within 
five minutes, one walkes out with a permit 
for Lot T Campus residents arrive a few 

days before classes and hit it off famously 
with their roommate. Both are neat and 

What happens next? Reality hits, like a 
slap in the face. Could any student 
believe that this could really happen? 
Some might, but not anyone who has at- 
tended classes on the first day. 

Realistically, the first day of classes, one 
actually wakes up dreading the confu- 
sion and lines off the first day. Commuters 
rush out of the house already ten minutes 
late, driving towards campus with the 
pedal to the floor. Thousands of other 
students are doing the same. There is on 
accident blocking the lanes, and frustra- 
tion set in. Finally one arrives on campus, 
already late for class. The only parking 
left is way out in Lot 4. One then 
remembers that their first class is in the 
dance building, on the other side of cam- 

For campus residents, the experience is 
somewhat different. Students arrive the 
night before classes to find their room- 
mate has already moved in and pro- 
ceeded to fill up 75 percent of the room 
with miscellaneous JUNK. By the end of 
the night there has already been several 
disagreements on how to arrange the

Back To School 

As morning approaches, the alarm 
does not go off. one jumps out of bed on- 
ly to find a line to take a shower. One 
evidently enters class late and is forced 
to sit in the bock of a large lecture hall, 
where the professor cannot be heard nor 

After classes are over, it is oft to Add- 
Drop. One heads over to the dreaded Ar- 
mory. The line has wrapped itself around 
six or seven times. An hour later, one has 
only moved three feet. 

Sometime later, much later, one 
reaches the front to find the class is clos- 
ed and cannot be waitlisted. Another 
class can actually be waitlisted, however, 
one would be number ninety-four! After 
standing in line for over two hours, one 
walks out feeling a sense of despair 
There's no hope of getting that class. 

Heading over to the book store, 
students must fight their way into the tex- 
tbook section. Theaisles are crammed 
with people. Only new editions ore 
available for seventy dollars! For the next 
class the book will not be in for another 
two to three weeks. The cashier rings up 
the total and students immediately 
become heart attack victims. There goes 
all that hard earned money! 

In reality, the Department of Campus 
Parking has a line outside and down the 
sidewalk. An hour later. Lot 4 permit in 
hand, students return to their car to find 
parking tickets covering the windshield. 

Well, thinking bock, maybe it was not all 
that bad. (Yes it was!) But, from some, 
there are many more first days to come. 
Just remember, "If you ore not standing in 
line... you are in the wrong place!"

Art Attack 1991 

Thousands of students hod o terrific 
reason for being late to class May 3, 1991. 
Their roommate did not eat their 
homework,' nor were they swept away by 
extraterrestrials on LaPlata Beach. They 
had on Art Attack! 

If you were one of the myriads of peo- 
ple who took over an hour to walk across 
McKeldin Mall on that windy, sunny day, 
you too were enticed by the colorful 
sights, aromatic smells, and harmonizing 
sounds of Art Attack. 

The festival, sponsored by SEE Produc- 
tions, featured a diversity of cultural at- 
tractions which followed this year's 
theme - "A Cultural Collage." 

Two huge tents, assembled on the 
bustling McKeldin grass, contained hun- 
dred of visual, culinary, and muscial artists 
who gathered to share a little of their 
cultural spice with College Park. 

Local craftspeople and students 
displayed a variety of works, from fashion 
to studio art. Groups representing French, 
Spanish, Chinese, Middle Eastern, and 
other cultures offered information, food 
and music to curious onlookers. 

Hundreds of student groups were 
represented, including: the Student 
Government Association, Amnesty Inter- 
national, Earth Day and others. 

Later in the day, Testudo himself was 
rockin' as the sounds of MoJo Nya 
(meaning "for the purpose of unity" in 
Swahili), the Corib Sounds Steel Orchestra 
and the John Cephas and Phil Wiggins 
blues duo brought students together to 
"chill out" and let loose in the cool even- 
ing air. 

Art Attack, now entering its ninth year 
of production, aims to expose students to 
cultures that they may not hove been 
aware of before. Learning about others is 
a daily process at the University of 
Maryland, but with so much new to 
discover, there is always a cause for 

Campus Careers 

Every semester students are expected 
to pull withdraw more and more money 
I out ot dwindling checking accounts to 
cover rising costs of tuition. As a result, 
campus employment at the University of 
Maryland has become a popular way to 
earn extra money. 

The possibilities for campus employ- 
ment are endless. For example. Resident 
Life, Dining Services, Shuttle UM, the 
University Book Center, Campus Recrea- 
tional Facilities, and the Campus Library 
System hire myriads of students to help 
handle the workload. 

Many students seem pleased with their 
employment as it provides o break from 
the hustle and bustle of attending classes 
and completing homework. For students 
who prefer to work at home, the Deport- 
ment of Resident Life offers positions as 
Residents Assistants (RA) and Desk 
Receptionists (DR). Life as on RA is a large 
time commitment, sometimes requiring 
OS much as 24 hours a day. One RA, Ralph 

Poden, explains, "It seems like you're at 
work whenever you're at home. But it's a 
fun job." One cannot complain when the 
compensation is full room and board! Be- 
ing on RA provides students with the op- 
portunity to help, meet and work with a 
vast number of diverse individuals. 

Other jobs require punching in at the 
office or a store. For example, the Univer- 
sity Book Center hires students to help 
with customer service, stocking the sup- 
plies and textbooks as well as cashiering. 
Amy Reidy, a long-time employee of the 
Book Center, says, "You work with a lot of 
interesting people, and for a certain port 
of the day, you are a part of a closeknit 
family. Plus, you get your expenses paid!" 

Most students find campus employers 
to be reasonably flexible because 
students ore here to learn first and 

Some students would rather not stay in 
the same place for six straight hours. Shut- 
tle UM provides a more scenic at- 

mosphere and a great opportunity for 
the student who enjoys driving and being 
"King of the Rood". Every evening. Shuttle 
UM operates routes around campus and 
to numerous points in between. With so 
many students getting off and on, every 
shift is different, especially those 2:00 
a.m. shifts on weekend nights when the 
driver is the only sober person on the bus. 

For the sports fanatic. Campus Recrea- 
tion Services is a dream come true. CRS 
offers a wide variety of employment 
ranging from lifeguarding to officiating in- 
tramural athletics. One can sometimes 
get in shape while on the clock! 

Campus jobs, as with most jobs, help 
cover rising expenses and offer the op- 
portunity to interact with individuals who 
share a common interest. The pay at 
many campus employment areas is well 
above the minimum wage, but best of all 
a job can become a valuable asset to 
add to your resume. 

Resident Assistants 

What does R-A- stand for to most 
students? Some may thiink it means 
Rhinocerous Ankles, or Resident Alcoholic, 
or Resident Abuser. But, for those who 
have knocked on that door in the hour of 
need, it means Resident Assistant. Now a 
popular form of employment, resident 
assistants have a lucrative job which pays 
full room and board. This truly inviting offer 
does require its share of work, but none- 
the-less it is a popular form of campus 

Debbie Bond, a government and 
politics major, is a Resident Assistant on 
the third floor of Worcester Hall. She says, 
the best part of being on RA is, "meeting 
people and learning how to work with 
others helping people get along with 
each other." Whether its helping solve a 
roomote dispute, holding unit meetings 
to discuss Resident rules and regulations, 
or just being someone that the residents 

can confide in, an RA's job is never easy. 

As most RA's would agree, the job 
comes with tremendous amounts of 
bureaucratic "red tope", which can be a 
hassle. Jen Paula, a junior, and RA on the 
second floor of Worcester Hall, explains, 
"the amount of bureaucracy and red 
tape that we have to go through 
definately gets in the way of the job and 
limits the amount of time I con spend with 
my residents." 

Does the job become more stressful 
when academics get hectic? Debbie 
soys, "Yes! It definately does, so you have 
to make sure that you budget your time 
properly." Jen takes a slightly different 
approach, looking for a "balance in my 
life so that everything is not just study, 
study, study or work, work, work." Addi- 
tionally, both agree that working on cam- 
pus is a plus for interacting and function- 
ing within the campus community.

The Adele H, Stamp Student Union 
Customer Bill of Righits states, "As you 
enter thie Stamp Student Union, you con 
expect. ..A clean, comfortable, safe and 
attractive building; friendly and 
courteous service; an informed and 
resourceful staff; a consistent and predic- 
table level of service; tt^e opportunity to 
participate in a brood array of activities; 
and the right to be heard and receive 
appropriate responses." 

The Stamp Student Union does just that. 
With an influx of over 17,000 people dai- 
ly, the Union is the center of student 
socials, cultural programs, educational 
courses, as well as film and offbeat enter- 
tainment. The Union has consistently striv- 
ed to become the community cultural 
center of College Park. It successfully of- 
fers diverse and exciting opportunities for 

The main goal of the Union is to support 
the general, academic and social 
welfare of the students. To maintain this 
objective, the Union has become a stu- 
dent service center. Here, there is a food 
court area, commuter lounge, and postal 
and banking conveniences. 

In addition, the Union sustains a fully 
staffed Information Center; where re- 
quests for campus assistance ore fulfilled. 
Over 25 percent of the students take ad- 
vantage of this service daily, while nearly 
30 percent of students visit the desk 
throughout the week. 

The Ticket Center conveniently pro- 
vides tickets to upcoming concerts, ploys, 
and train and bus tickets. The Union Shop 
offers snacks, a flower shop, and current 
issues of magazines. The University Book 
Center supplies the academic 
necessities, as well as a Terrapin clothes 
shop. To aid students, the union has 
created a 24-hour study facility, and suc- 
cessfully implemented a recycling 

To increase the impact of the Union on 
campus, the creation of the Student 
Union Program Council (SUPC) en- 
courages the awareness of other cultural 
groups, world issues and entertainment. 
Implementing over 200 programs yearly, 
this student volunteer organization 

augments the choices available to 
students at College Park. With nine in- 
dividual sub-committees, the SUPC pro- 
motes diversity as well as an opportunity 
for students to gain leadership 

The Issues and Answers committee en- 
courages students to probe current 
social issues by provoking student opinion 
in lectures and workshops. 

The Premier Productions committee 
organizes campus sporting events, such 
as the Terrapin Trot 5K Rood Race and 
the UMCP Bodybuilding Contest. 

In addition, the Visual Arts committee 
invites students to express their creativity 
through mural paintings, art demonstra- 
tions, and various artistic competitions. 

The SUPC also sponsors Glass Onion 
Concerts, where different music groups 
ore invited to perform. 

Also, there is an Outdoor Recreation 
Committee, that plans outings for the 
adventurous. Activities are planned such 
as hong gliding, white water rafting and 

A main objective of the Stamp Union is 
to enhance intercultural awareness on 
and off campus. With this in mind, a 
Cultural Events committee plans dances, 
performances, film series and other ac- 
tivities for students. 

The SUPC also oversees the 200 
cultural and educational clubs of the 
campus. In addition to working with cam- 
pus groups such as SEE Productions, SGA, 
fraternities and sororities, SUPC created 
Nite Life, a three day entertainment 
avenue for students. This alcohol-free 
pub enhances campus spirit, through a 
comedy nite, a concert nite and a dance 
party nite. 

There ore also various centers within 
the Union that help it to achieve its well- 
roundedness. The Hoff Theatre presents 
popular films at a student rote. This year it 
celebrated its 20th anniversary with dis- 
count matinees. Also, the theatre shows 
forein films, golden oldies, and off-beat 
midnight movie entertainment. However, 
its most popular feature is the free sneak 
previews of yet-to-be-releosed films. 

The Parent's Association Gallery ex- 
plores various themes in its exhibits, in- 
cluding art, photography, educational 
posters, various artifacts and writing. 

The Recreation Center, found in the 
basement of the Union, offers bowling, 
billiards and even an arcade to relieve 
stress, improve fitness and plain old fun! 

While the Union is continually striving for 
improvements, it has successfully com- 
bined all different aspects of student life 
at the University of Maryland. In ac- 
comodating students' welfare, it has also 
implemented various diverse projects for 
all to partake, organize and enjoy. 

Weekend Hiqfdiqhts 

Of course, during the week, all of the 
University of Maryland's students are in 
the library studying hard (...well, maybe 
not everybody) but, when the weekend 
comes around, they know how to let 
loose and have a good time! In addition 
to the hot spots in College Park, UM's pro- 
ximity to Baltimore, Annapolis and 
Washington D.C. make its weekends 
anything but dull. 

Ask any DM student and they can tell 
you that a party can be found anywhere 
and anytime if one looks hard enough! 
Big parties off campus or smaller parties 
on campus -- no matter what kind. 
University of Maryland students will be 

The many fraternity and sorority 
chapters offer a party source for some, 
and for others. Route 1 bars call. Whether 
they go to Bentley's, Santa fe, the Cellar 
or the 'Vous, students sure can drink, and 
drink they do! 

Each of the bars on the Route attract 
their own; the Cellar has a dance floor, 
while at Santa Fe, the crowd is more 
relaxed. Students wear their "Vous shoes" 
to protect them from the floor of College 
Park's most popular bar, often a hang out 
for many fraternity and sorority members, 
and Bentley's crowd offers a good mix of 
people as well as a good bar. 

No matter how fun College Park can 
be, nobody likes the same old thing every 
weekend. The Metro makes travel easy 
for anyone who decides to miss out on 
the College Park weekend scene. 
Washington offers a great alternative. 
When Friday rolls around, it's easy to head 
to Georgetown or D.C. to hit the bars to 
go "clubbing". The world famous Hard 
Rock Cafe is a popular spot, not to men- 
tion Chicago's or the Dome. 

Washington is not just for night life. Our 
nation's capital offers many daytime at- 
tractions. Students join tourists from all 
over the United States and the world as 
they visit the many popular Smithsonian 
museums, government buildings like the 
Capital Building and the White House, 
and national monuments like the Viet- 
nam memorial. Washington D.C. also of- 
fers other attractions such as the Na- 
tional Zoo. 

Another weekend spot for day or even- 
ing is the capital of Maryland - Annapolis. 
Also a short trip away, Annapolis offers 
something for everyone. Downtown Inner 
Harbor Annapolis still has brick streets, 
and vintage shops that sell practically 
every Maryland knickknock ever made. 
Many visitors also like to tour the United 
States Naval academy and catch a 
glimpse of the mid-shipmen, A great way

Pfoces to See 

to spend a Saturday is to octets a boot 
shovj in the harbor during the day, and 
dine in one of the many terrific 
restaurants before going home. 

If you lil<e to eat out, the port city of 
Baltimore is another favorite place to go 
on the weekend. Just a bit further away, 
Baltimore ofters so many restaurants and 
bars that a UM student could never try all 
of them in their years at College Park. 
One of the best areas to eat out is Fell's 
Point. Just across the harbor is Baltimore's 
most famous tourist attraction, the Inner 
Harbor. Paddle boat rentals, the National 
Aquarium, Science Center, and Harbor 
Place, two pavilions of restaurants and 
shops, are all found in the Inner Harbor, 
Just across the street is the relatively new 
Galleria, another center for popular 
shops and eateries. 

Baltimore is also the home of the 
Baltimore Orioles! Major league baseball 
fans can head to Memorial Stadium 
(traditional home of university of 
Maryland vs. Penn State football) to 
catch a game. 

Sports fans of any kind can be made 
happy at the University of Maryland. Be- 
ing close to both Baltimore, Annapolis 
and D.C. makes sports like professional 
ice hockey, basketball, football, baseball 
and soccer readily accessible to those 
who need a change from college sports. 

As a matter of fact. College Park's 
great location makes just about any 
weekend activity possible. From drinking 
'til you drop in College Park, to learning 
about marine mammals at the National 
Aquarium in Baltimore, there are myriads 
of exciting activities. On can also meet 
the middies in Annapolis, or appreciate 
fine art in Washington D.C, museums and 
galleries. UM students can do it all! Maybe 
that's why everyone know that University 
of Maryland students hove so much fun!

students returning for classes in the fall 
of 1991 saw a variety of physical changes 
in their campus. The North Hill residence 
halls, Dorchester and Anne Arundel, are 
both in a continuing state of change. The 
construction of the rew Animal Sciences 
Building in North Campus, that opened to 
students in January of 1992 served to cen- 
tralize undergraduate teaching for that 
department. Also, due to renovations in 
Taliaferro Hall, the English and American 
Studies Departments have been 
relocated to the South Campus Surge 

Dorchester Hall reopened its doors for 
the fall after one year of renovations. It 
novi/ houses Maryland's International 
House. It hopes to bring foreign and 
American students closer together in a 
closeknit living and learning environment. 
The 155 students at the "l-House" come 
from 32 countries around the v»/orld; 
although 60 percent of the residents are 
American. Residents come to College 
Park from diverse places as Indonesia, 
China, Cyprus, Italy, Argentina, Estonia, 
England, Thailand, Japan, and India. 

The renovations to Dorchester v^^ere ex- 
tensive over the post year. The three 
floor hall nov/ has its ov^/n fully equipped 
kitchen, two student lounges, a social 
room, a study room, an apartment to 
house visiting international scholars, and 
above all; air conditioning. 

The l-House came into being after 
years of planning led predominantly by 
Coordinator Susan Cafe workirtg with the 
University's International Education 

Dorchester residents quickly created 
and elected the Internatioral House 
Council (IHC) to program and coordinate 
cultural activities for the hall's first year. 
"The main objective of the IHC lies in the 
stimulation and strenthening of inter- 
cultural unity throughout the residence 
hall and ultimately the entire university 
community," said IHC President Ralph 
Brenner, a senior electrical engineering 

Also in the North Hill area, Anne Arundel 
Hall continued renovations during the 
1991-1992 school year. Scheduled to open 
in Fall of 1992, Anne Arundel will be the 
first Honors Dorm for students living in the 
residence halls. It will seek to unite 125

actualization of a plan started in 1970 for 
housing one of the smallest departments 
in the university. With this nevj building. 
Phase II vy/os completed, giving the 
Animal Science Department's 125 
undergraduate and 35 graduate 
students a multitude of nevj facilities. 
Among the additions were four new 
classrooms, a student lounge, reading 
room, computer facilities, and a com- 
puter teaching laboratory. "The building 
added four new animal research 
laboratories, designed to meet current 
Notional Institute of Health standards in 
the field," said Dr. Dennis Westhoff, Chair- 
man of the Animal Sciences Department. 
Before this addition, teaching in the 
department hod been scattered in dif- 
ferent buildings around campus. The con- 
struction of this new building will serve to 
centralize teaching and to give the 
department a home.

plained the consequences of the 
renovations planned for Taliaferro Hall 
over the next three years. Taliaferro, a 
building usually full of English majors and 
aspiring liberal artists, was silent this fall 
awaiting major repairs to its halls and 
rooms. The hall is in desperate need of 
replacement lighting, new floors, and im- 
proved air conditioning in some spots, 
and for first time installation in others. 
Engish and American Studies classes 
were held in the brand new Surge

Marching to a Different Beat 

UM Marching Band Shines Above the Rest 

The Marching Band, also known as the 
"Mighty Sound of Maryland," represents 
the University at varied occasions and 
performs at all home football gomes. 

Founded in 1909, by nineteen musicians 
at the Maryland Agricultural College, 
UM's Bond now has 175 students. 

Bond members put in over lO hours of 
practice per week leading up to a Satur- 
day home game. The students are a port 
of the Band as a two credit class. But, few 
musicians take it for credit alone, as the 
time commitment can be heavy. 

Each season the Band travels with the 
football team to one away gome. This 
year, the band travelled to Georgia Tech. 

Travelling is one of the best parts of be- 
ing in the band, according to junior 
Michael Ahr, a saxophone player. Ahr 
described Atlanta as "a toursit trap from 
Hell," due to the World Series. According 
to Ahr, Georgia Tech members were ex- 
tremely impressed by UM's marching 
bond. They asked if Band members were 
music majors on scholarships. But, most 
Band students are not music majors. 

The Band is considered the best in the 
ACC, by many in the field. "The quality of 
the music stems from the members' 

dedication to practices," said one stu- 
dent. Also, members see the bond as a 
long term commitment. Especially since 
Athletic Director Andy Geiger allowed 
four year marchers to receive varsity 

The current success of the Marching 
Bond also has a lot to do with Bond Direc- 
tor Dr. Richmond Sparks. Although much 
of the Band's functioning is handled by 
members, the Director's "enthusiastic" 
expertise is critical, one musician claimed. 
"He knows how to motivate," said 
sopomore Emily Mellgren, a saxophone 
player. The leadership responsibility is 
delegated by the Director to three Drum 
Majors in charge of the different musical 
sections. The 1991-1992 Drum Majors were 
David Lou, Somontho Zonger and Fred 

To help in the Band's day-to-day affairs, 
the Band has a fraternity (Kappa Kappa 
Psi) and a sorority (Tau Beta Sigma). 
These ore service oriented groups 
responsible for administration, fundraising 
and overall functioning of the organiza- 
tion. Fundraisers hove included bake 
soles, cor washes and carnation sales for 
Homecoming. Money raised goes to buy 

The Terrapin Marching Band performed 
before thousands at the Homecoming game.

The band fraternity and sorority also 
sponsor social events at members 
hiomes, suchi as thie Halloween Party, held 
in October. 

Many students form long lasting friend- 
ships from being a port of the Band. 
Junior Ted Evans, a saxophonist describ- 
ed the band as, "like a big family." A big 
reason for this is the fact that members 
spend so much time with each other, 
practicing or otherwise. 

At the beginning of each year, before 
the Fall semester starts, the Bond holds 
"Early Week." Musicians practice for five 
days straight, ten hours a day. "This is an 
excellent way for freshmen to make a lot 
of new friends really quickly," said Evans. 

University Cfiauffeurs 

"Good morning! ...Good morning! 
...Good morning! ...Good morning," said 
Shuttle driver Chris Stone, greeting each 
Spring Hill Lake Shuttle passenger as they 
board. "I like to greet them to try and 
start their day off on the right foot, " said 
Stone, a computer science and German 

In the morning people have a lot on 
their mind or ore still waking up, so they 
may be cranky. "Some passengers just 
glare at me like I'm the weirdest person in 
the world," said Stone, "But, some stop to 
ask me how I'm doing or something," 

Others bring a cup of coffee to jump 
start their brain cells in the morning. 
"Either way, I enjoy interacting with the 
passengers. Driving around in circles can 
be boring, " said Stone. "Plus, it makes 
passengers think better of Shuttle." 

Stone also started a tradition of enter- 
taining regular riders. "I'd do fun stuff, like 
tell a joke everyday at 11:00. After a 
while, passengers would come to look 
forward to the wisecrack of the day," 
said Stone. 

Senior Matt Campbell, a three year 
Shuttle veteran and education major, ex- 
plains, "Shuttle is almost entirely student 
run, so people understand your needs as 
a student, too." Shuttle bus drivers work in 
shifts past normal business hours, so the 
hours are extremely flexible. 

The excellent atmosphere has created 
a number of loyal employees. "We all 
joke that we drive our bus more than we 
drive our cars. ..Yeah, some people have 
worked at Shuttle for five or six years. It's 
like you suddently have 130 friends and 
it's a wide variety of people," explained 
Campbell. "Shuttle has great social 
potential, too. We all get together and 

Shuttle drivers hove the highest starting 
salary of all part-time campus jobs. 
However, said Campbell, "For the 
amount of responsibility we have, we 
don't get paid nearly enough. We drive a 
Flex that costs thousands and we're 
responsible for the safe transport of large 
numbers of students." 

Shuttle drivers go through extensive 
training programs to ensure student and 
driver safety. For example, drivers obtain 
a special license through a written and 
driving exam at the Motor Vehicle Ad- 
ministration. Employees learn numerous 
maintenance procedures and driving 
laws which also apply to bus and truck 
drivers all over the United Stotes. 

But, before the "IN TRAINING" sign can 
be switched to "IN SERVICE," a rigorous 
three week training program must be 
completed. Applicants must also have a 
clean driving record for at least one year.

Campus Transportation 

Many students hiave been grateful for 
the Shuttle service, especially after a wild 
night on the Route. For students stumbing 
home from the Route or the Row at 2:00 
a.m., "Shuttle is a great way to help 
reduce drinking and driving," said Amy 
Reidy, a senior agricultural economics 

"There's always a bunch that get on at 
South Gate to go to the high rises. They'll 
be screaming and running around, telling 
drivers to run the next stop sign," said 
Campbell. Drivers have the authority to 
stop the bus, turn on the lights, and tell 
students to shut up and calm down. "If 
they don't, we can kick them off the bus 
or call the Police," said Campbell. "But, 
when peole get sick on your bus, it really 

Just about everyone has memories of 
coming home from the Row and stan- 
ding up on the bus because the bus is so 
crowded. "You hold onto the straps for 
dear life thinking, 'Will I make it home 
without getting sick?'" said Maura Taylor, 
a senior history major. 

But there are others who are just having 
a good ol' time. "It's fun when they sing 
the theme song to the 'Brady Bunch' or 
'The Flintstones,'" said Campbell. 

However, stranger things have happen- 
ed to Shuttle drivers. "Some drunk sorority 
girls did a strip tease in the back of the 
bus," chuckled Stone. "It was raining real- 
ly hard and we were stuck behind Frat 
Row because cars were blocking the 
road. I suggested we needed some 
entertainment and one of the girls said 
she knew how to dance." 

University of Maryland's Shuttle UM, one 
of the oldest student run transportation 
systems, has come a long way from its 
beginning twenty years ago. "Shuttle 
started with one Call-A-Ride bus. Back 
then, it was just one beat up, ol' red van," 
said Campbell.

Studying Takes on Different Forms 



As I crawled out of my portable, all- 
weather pup tent, and stumbled towards 
thie bathroom, I caught sight of my reflec- 
tion in the large glass walls surrounding 
me. I realized I have become a resident 
of Hornbake's "24 hour study room" Hall. 

Like many other UM students, I was 
practically a permanent resident of Horn- 
bake Library. The Hornbake 24 hour study 
room is one of the most popular places 
on campus to study as well as to meet 
new people. 

Some people say the people are the 
best part of going to study in Hornbake. 
"You see some real characters at four in 
the morning," said senior Tanya Olsen, an 
elementary education major. "One time I 
sow some people jogging around the 
room to woke themselves up!" 

But, for those students that did not like 
the hustle and bustle of Hornbake, or 
prefer to get their studying done at a de- 
cent hour, there ore plenty of other 

Another popular spot was the 
Engineering Library. "The classes in my 
major are pretty tough, so I hove to con- 
centrate. In the engineering library, 
everyone is very quiet and it is easy to 
get a lot of work done. That is where I 

spend most of my time," said Laura 
Benedict, a junior pre-engineering major. 

One of the most common places to 
study still seemed to be one's own room. 
"I am most comfortable studying in my 
room," said Lisa Edell, a junior early 
childhood education major. "I have a 
single, so long as my roommates are 
quiet, I don't have a problem studying in 
my room." 

Regardless of where students studied, 
the methods of study tend to be as 
diverse. "I have to study things bit by bit, 
and start a couple days before my exam. 
If I don't, then I am totally stressed out the ' 
night before, said Nancy Moy, a junior 
business major. 

Others prefer to cram it all in the night 
before. "If I even think of studying before 
the day before my exam, my system 
goes into shock. I work much better 
under pressure," Lisa Edell added. 

To students of every major and every 
grade, studying was a fact of life and fac- 
ed many times at the Univesity. 

Some students just tried to make the 
best of a heavy schedule of classes. "I am 
going to put up a tent in the library and 
only leave to go to class," said Tamara 
Gronet, a senior journalism major.

Erasabk Inc. A UM Tradition 

Impmisaiion Group Adds Distinctix'c I'Lur 

All eyes in the Atrium turned to people 
barking out sounds of glee, disgust, sur- 
prise, and indifference. To those just pass- 
ing through, the group may have been a 
parade of schizophrenics. But, as the 
faithful, seasoned majority knew, the 
emotionally maladjusted group was the 
University of Maryland's only improvisa- 
tional comedy troup»e, doing a rendition 
of a game they called 

The improvising minds came together 
over five years ago, when The Purple 
Crayon, a comedy group from Yale 
University, held a campus workshop 
about the art of improvisation in comedy 

A semester later, a group of students 
who atterxjed the workshop thought it 
would be fun to play improvisotional 
comedy games. Spontaneously, they 
walked into the Student Union Atrium one 
Thursday and improvised. 

To Erasable Inc., the art of improviso- 
tional comedy was more than just being 
funny. Although much of what the au- 
dience sow involved laughter, the pro- 
cess the group undertook to arrive at 
laughter went much deeper than just 
fooling around on stage. 

Erasable Inc. gomes involved audience 
members as players. The group asked the 
audience to contribute to the scene: a 
theme, an emotion, a place, a genre, or 
an opening line. Each gome then built on 
audience suggestions, incorporating 
ideas and moods of the audience. 

It was this awareness of the unpredic- 
table nature of their art that Erasable Inc. 
took advantage of in every show. They 
manipulated the unknown into what was 
very twisted, hysterically funny or pure 

Each member of Erasable Inc. was ex- 
posed to the same vulnerabilities inherent 

in improvisation, such as apprehensions 
about the offensive or inappropriate sug- 
gestions of the audience. Each member 
come to trust in the unity of the group 
sharing mistakes and successes. 

Bob Williams recounted the many 
shows during which Inc. member Kevin 
Dyels has, with his back facing the group, 
thrown his glasses behind him, always 
trusting that a fellow Inc. member would 
catch them. 

"Trust allows you to lose yourself in the 
scene, where you don't notice the au- 
dience anymore, and you don't care 
how anything looks anymore. You just let 
it happen," Williams said. 

Focus, another crucial improvisation 
element, involves the attention that each 
member pays to one another. 

"When focus works right, everyone on 
stage is worried about making everyone 
else look good, and trust comes in know- 
ing that everyone is worrying with you," 
Williams said. "Everyone is trying to hold 
one another up." 

Erasable Inc. also prided themselves on 
not having any preset notions of what it is 
they would perform, or what could hap- 
pen once they were on stage. 

The ideas for the games they played 
were structures, and throughout the 
course of each show, the structures were 
broken apart, torn down, and rebuilt in an 
entirely new way. 

In 1992, Erasable Inc. once again rebuilt, 
with over half of the group in their first 
semester of Inc. performance. Under the 
newly appointed creative director Eric 
Solodino and assistant creative director 
Woody Irvin, the group went through 
what Irvin called "a period of transition," 
as the new members, along with several 
veteran members, took on a new 
character and worked through a per- 
sonal gome of discovery. 



Taking a Break 

The Tdc\ision Factor 

Television is a primary source of enter- 
tainment for college students at the 
University of Maryland. Some students 
would rather hove a heated discussion 
about Brendo and Dylan's relationship on 
"Berverly Hills. 90210" than listen to 
another sleep-inducing lecture. 

Most students watch television for 
entertainment or to ease the pressure of 
exams. "It's a good way to relax after tak- 
ing on exam." said Chorlene Gayle, a 
senior economics major. 

Television, for many, serves as a way to 
ovoid studying, "I often watch television 
OS on excuse not to study," said Corliss Hill, 
a senior journalism major. 

What ore some of the favorite shows of 
Maryland students? The "Cosby Show" 
and "The Simpsons" ore still popular 
because, "They portray family situations 
in a funny way," said Sonio Florence, a 
junior consumer economics major. 

"Beverly Hills, 90210" now has a cult 
following. "Practically all the girls in my 
sorority house sit around together and 
watch it," said Diane Ruth, a junior math 
major. "They don't even go out until it's 

The program's unrealistic portrayal of 
teens is one of it's main attractions. "The 
people on that show ore. like, totally 
perfect," said Jim Gordineer, a 
sophomore, undecided major. "Everyone 
wishes their high school experience had 
been like that, with great clothes and 
huge mansions." 

Despite the popularity of new shows, 
the soap-opera will always be a favorite 
with Mon/lond students. "I like it because 
it's like watching a fairytale," said Joy 
Gerst, a freshman engineering major. "I 
also like the beautiful women." 

Some die-hard fans like senior English 
major Cindy Schuller schedule classes 
around their favorite soaps. " 'Days of Our 
Lives' came on between one and two 
o'clock, so I made sure I hod no classes at 
that time." 

So. it you wont to find out if Brenda and 
Dylan's relationship will last, watch them 
on television Thursday night. I guarantee 
you will not be alone!

Every freshmen worried about moving 
into the resident halls and who their 
roommate might be. Would she be a 
metal-head biker-chick? What if he has a 
spiked purple mohawk and wears metal 
studs around his neck? Even worse, what 
if he wears pocket protectors or doesn't 

But, on check-in day, most fears were 
laid to rest. The roommate was ex- 
ceedingly normal! Both roommates ac- 
tually got along, at least, for the first few 

We learned to break through 
stereotypes and accept divergent 
lifestyles. After all, college is where one 
learns to question the rules, stand up to 
authority, and restructure our beliefs. 

Resident hall life is an unbeatable ex- 
perience. There are few other places 
one is exposed to so many cultural 
backgrounds. Sharing a cramped, 12 x 15 
cell can foster relationships between 
even the most unlikely pairs. 

"I don't think we would've ended up 
such good friends if we weren't room- 
mates," said junior, sociology major Rick 
Rhoden. "I hesitated when I first heard his 
classical music. Paul didn't like my rap 
either; but we both got used to each 
other's tastes, and Paul actually come to 
like rap." 

Some roommate combinations were a 
great success; some were utter 
catastrophes. "My roommate said I had 
to hove my boyfriend out of the room by 
8;00 p.m...she drew a line down the mid- 
dle of the room, stating which side was 
mine and which side was hers. Unfor- 
tunately, my side had the door, so I told 
her she could use her side of the window 
to come and go. It was hell," said on 
Elkton Hall resident. 

No matter what the roommate rela- 
tionship, it was all part of the college ex- 
perience. We learned how to share, com- 
promise, accept different values, and 
communicate. Some of us even remain- 
ed friends after college. 

University Theatre 

Sfiowcasing Stars of Tomorrow 

Tawes Theater at the University of 
Maryland had a different twist for 1991. 
Shows ranged from intellectual comedy, 
to fairies on roller blades, to political 

Tawes Theater presents various perfor- 
mances and events throughout the year, 
and the four major productions this year 
were "Top Girls," "Major Barbara," "Bring 
Bock Broadway," and "Midsummer 
Night's Dream." 

"Top Girls," directed by Sharon Ammen, 
took place during the spring, consisting of 
an all-female cast. Feminism was ad- 
dressed and examined through the lives 
of seven women from different countries 
and varying lifestyles. 

The playwright, Gary Churchill, brought 
many issues to surface. But Sharon Am- 
men's interpretation attempted to reveal 
the struggles and strengths of women of 
the past and present. 

George Bernard Shaw's "Major Bar- 
bara" was filled with intellectual comedy 
and wit. Junior theater major Jeff Binder 
played the role of Peter Shirely. He com- 
mented, "There isn't one play that I 
haven't ejoyed doing here at UMCP. As 
actors, we've found certain nuances to 
inspire us to enjoy our work." In this play 
Jim Petoso directed his cost to explore 
contradicting ideals, philosophies, and 

In October, "Bring Back Broadwa

dinated all musical selections in this tw

tremendous impact on Broadwc 

The play featured music from gred 
such as Gole Porter and George and I 
Gershwinn. "BBB had on exceptional w(

Finally, Shakespeare confirmed the so

Btkind tfte Scenes 

Backstage, at University Theatre, 

At Tawes Theater, the execution of a 
production requires much time and ef- 
fort. Most people foil to realize the 
amount of work and energy that goes in- 
to producing a show. 

"Being a theater major is like juggling 
two full-time jobs," said Rob Crites, a 
junior theater major. "The first job is 
managing as a student and the other is 
doing a production, in which a lot is ex- 
pected of you." 

Every theater major is required to take 
Stage Craft 170. This course exposes per- 
formers to the behind-the-scenes of a 
ploy. Students study the many roles in- 
volved in putting a show together. After a 
production is chosen by the director and 
his assistants, casting begins. Audition 
notices ore posted on the first day of 
classes and students are told what type 
of audition is expected. Being a theater 
major is not a requirement for trying out 
for a show. After the first audition, 
call-bocks ore held and narrowed down 
and the cost is finally chosen. 

As the "builder" of the play, the director 
unifies the interpretation and presenta- 
tion of the play. The assistant director 
helps in the unification and may also con- 
duct rehearsals and run lines with the 
cost. Once the director's job is com- 

pleted, the show belongs to the stage 
manager. He or she is the liason between 
the director and the cost as well as the 
stage crew. 

At the onset of the ploy, a production 
meeting is held to brainstorm for 
set-building, costumes, scenic design, 
lighting and sound. Following this, a 
budget is formulated and scheduling is 
done. All written proposals, drafts and 
sketches are discussed. Once these are 
agreed upon and approved, producton 

All technicians and designers work 
together. The scenic designer tries to 
create a physical environment and per- 
formance stage that supports the play's 
location, while the costume designer ex- 
presses the elements of a characfer 
through the performer's apparel. Lighting 
is crucial in a show. It emphasizes the 
scenes and expresses mood. Sound, the 
last element of a show, functions to 
amplify the actor's voice. 

"Theater is an intensified program and 
a commitment to the arts, and 
knowledge of one's self is a must in order 
to survive and excel," said Carmen White, 
a junior theater major, commenting on 
the elements required of those involved 
in the production of a show.

full-time pharmacists. It has prescriptions 
as well as over-the-counter medications. 
But, the UHC pharmacy is probably most 
famous for its "Three for Free" offer of 
free condoms to students. 

The Mental Health department has 
psychiatrists and psychiatric social 
workers to provide mental health infor-

also group therapy and weekly support

UM 5tu£lmt5 Work Out 

The health and fitness craze looks like 
its here to stay. And Jane Fonda videos 
and Campus Recreation Services (CRS) 
have come to lead the v^/ay to buns of 
steel and sex appeal. 

"In the seven years that I've been here I 
hove definitely seen an increase in 
fitness," said Barbara Aiken, the assistant 
director of Campus Recreation Services. 

Among the most popular fitness ac- 
tivities are aerobics and swimming. "The 
swimming pool is typically crowded and 
sometimes we have 180 people in one 
aerobic class," said Aiken. Aerobic 
classes ore held every day and students 
can choose from low impact to high im- 
pact sessions. 

Students practice fitness to increase 
energy or because they desire to get in 
shape. "We try to promote fitness as a 
way to reduce stress, to make you sleep 
better and to do well in school," said 

But, the biggest reasons students work 
out is because they wont to look good. 
"Since doing aerobics, I have definitely 
rvDticed a change in my appearance 
arxj I've lost over 35 pounds," said 
Monica Watkins, a junior mechanical 
engineering major. 

According to Aiken, the overage stu- 
dent exercises three hours a week, the 
minimum for cardiovascular exercise. But, 
some students exercise much more, like 
Karen Meredith, a junior fashion mer- 
chandising major. "I exercise about four 
or five times a week to stay in shape," 
said Meredith, 

The number of students enrolling in 
fitness classes increases even more bet- 
ween February and spring break. "During 
these months, you con't get into the door 
of an aerobics class. People are trying to 
kDse weight from Christmas eating or for 
the Florida beaches," claimed Aiken.

Campus Cops 

UM SUidents as Police Aides and Ticketers 

Imagine 167,000 slips of yellow paper 
floating around campus - slips of paper 
inspiring fear and anger in the hearts of 
students, and emptying their wallets. One 
would never guess that such a little peice 
of paper could create such havoc. These 
slips of paper are parking parking tickets. 

Director of Campus Parking David Allen 
employes both students and non- 
students to hand out the dreaded tickets. 
"It's kind of a tough job to have," said 
Allen, refering to ticketing. One member 
of the ranks is full-time employee Evelyn 
Newborn, whom Allen consideres one of 
the best. Her favorite part of the job is is- 
suing the tickets. She hands out a whopp- 
ing 50 to too everyday. But the least 
favorite aspect of her job is dealing with 
student attitudes. 

Not surprisingly, ticketers are often 
harassed, and not just by students. 
Newborn recalled one incident, "I issued 
a ticket to a construction worker, and he 
got up in my face!" 

Student ticketer Adam Haight admit- 
ted that whenever he introduces himself 
he says, "I'm one of those parking scum- 
bolls." But, aside from all the harassment, 
"It's really a good job," Haight added. 

Perhaps more appreciated by students 
are the police aides. This semester, 
seventy-two students received specializ- 
ed training and worked with campus 

police to provide security. They could be 
seen doing their jobs in ever part of cam- 
pus, including the University Book Center, 
the libraries, and at Byrd Stadium during 
sporting events. 

Police aide Marie enjoys her work 
because, "It's not like a desk job; it's more 
exciting." She added that she enjoys the 
chance to perform a community service. 
Brian agreed, "You get to help out peo- 
ple...people sometimes harass women, 
and we get to stop that." Another aide, 
Jim, also enjoys working with his fellow 
students. He feels that communication is 
easier between students and aides than 
between students and police officers. 
"Police are intimidating," he said. "And 
we're less likely to to be a threat than o 
police officer, because we understand 
students' problems." 

Jim is bothered by the misconception 
that police aides issue parking tickets. 
Students have become very aggressive 
with him while he was collecting money 
from meters. "We have to take radios 
because people get really out of hand," 
he said. 

The jobs of the ticketer and the police 
aide may be unappreciated at times, but 
workers develop a sense of accomplish- 
ment and take pride in doing their port to 
enforce university rules. Besides, as Marie 
said, "It's fun to get behind the scenes."

Homecoming ^91 

Homecoming 1991 aimed to attract a 
prger, more diverse portion of ttie stu- 
ient body in the week-long celebration, 
ypically dominated by Greek 

Brandon Dula, chioirperson of the 1991 
lomecoming committee, said, "It was 
nainly a matter of perception. We had to 
>ersuade all campus organizations that 
omecoming is a activity for the entire 

Although student organizations ore 
ligible to compete for the Homecoming 
orticipation award, many exclude 
lemselves from getting involved 
ecause sororities and fraternities are 
sually the most active and accumulate 
ie most "spirit points," according to Kurt 
9nstermacker, president of the Stamp 
^udent Union Program Council and 
lember of the Homecoming committee. 
This year's Homecoming excitement 
eked off on Monday, October 21, with a 
ampus-wide scavenger hunt sponsored 
y the Student Union Program Council 
UPC). Students had until Thursday to 
jorch for o list of professors, historical 
Dcuments, and a variety of other things 

only a true Terp could identify. 

On Tuesday, comedian Dennis Miller 
performed for a sold-out crowd at Ritchie 
Coliseum, The former weekend newsman 
of "Saturday Night Live" split more than a 
few sides with his sarcastic humor, draw- 
ing upon such topics as the Clarence 
Thomas hearings, Saddam Hussein, West 
Virginia natives and material from his 
many classic performances. 

Friday's banner competition was a gala 
of artistic creativity and school spirit. The 
18 banners, displayed on the Byrd 
Stadium fence were judged in categories 
based on theme, artistic quality, effort, 
originality, and color. SUPC provided the 
basic materials, and each group had five 
days to complete their masterpiece. 

The Greek match-up of Pi Kappa Alpha 
and Kappa Kappa Gamma won first 
prize with their takeoff on Saturday Night 
Live's "Wayne's World." Coming in se- 
cond in the banner competition and the 
Homecoming award overall was the 
combo of Delta Delta Delta, Delta Tau 
Delta and Delta Sigma Pi. Their creation, 
the "Mississippi Delta," featured the 
waterway's traditional old-time paddle 

boat designs. 

Following the parade was the tradi- 
tional pep rally and bonfire. Later that Fri- 
day night, the second annual Homecom- 
ing Formal was held in the Stomp Union. 
The formal, open to all students gave 
students a chance to dance. According 
to Fenstermacker, over 300 people at- 
tended the dance, which is a cor- 
nerstone necessary to promote student 
involvement in Homecoming. 

This was the first year that Homecoming 
and Family Weekend coincided. Unlike 
previous years, this year's program 
targeted the families of all students, from 
freshmen to seniors. 

The highlight of Family Weekend was 
Sunday brunch at President Kirwan's 
home. The Kirwan family and other school 
administrators cordially greeted and 
chatted with about 600 Terrapin family 
members. "We knew parents were going 
to corner him (Kirwan) about certain 
questions," said Tom Flynn of Campus 
Guest Services, which coordinated Family 
Weekend. Flynn said he received a very 
positive reaction from parent about the

The 90's 

Pasta makers are out, sixty-hour work weeks ore 
out, the once popular phrase, "Greed is good," is 
definitely O-U-T. But, what is in? Even scholars and 
top nnarketing executives are baffled. The ninty's 
generation, known as "Baby Busters," are no predic- 
table bunch. 

The Baby Boomer generation followed a uniform, 
cookie cutter culture, and because of their size, 
they defined every era they passed through, forc- 
ing society to accomodate their needs. In contrast, 
according to census accounts, the U.S. birth rote 
went into a sharp decline, decreasing the number 
of birth to less than half the level of the post war 
boom. Unfortunately, so far we ore an unsung 
generation, too small to be noticed, too new to be 

However, looking at the problems facing the 
ninety's generation, it is no wonder! We, the Baby 
Busters, hove not decided which problems to 
tackle. There is AIDS, diversity, homelessness, cancer, 
and environmental concervotion, just to name a 
few. Which single cause is most worthy of our time, 
money and other resources? The answer is they ore 
all worthy. 

"I envision ourselves as a generation kind of 
waiting in the shadows, unsure of what to do, but 
quietly figuring out a plan of action," said Brian Beot- 
ty, a senior English major. Baby Busters seem over- 
whelmed by past generations' revolutionary 
thoughts and causes; yet the problems we face are 
the insurmountable problems the Boomers left. Thus, 
we spread our energy and enthusiasm over many 
causes, unable to decide which is more important. 

Even worse is the horrible revelation that we may 
not solve them, which breed apathy. How many 
students did not voice their concerns during the stu- 
dent teach-ins or protest budget cuts because they 
felt their voice would not be heard? 

Time magazine, in its July 16, 1990 issue, devoted 
its cover story to the Baby Busters, calling us the 
"twenty something" generation. Time magazine 
writers David Gross and Sophronio Scott point out 
that today's generation grew up in a time of drugs, 
divorce and economic strain. We virtually reared 
ourselves. As latch-key kids, TV provided the sur- 
rogate parenting, and Ronald Reagan starred as 
the real-life Mr. Rogers, dispensing reassurance. His 
message: problems con be shelved until later. 

It is now later, and the problems have gotten 
worse. The Savings and Loan failures, HUD scandals. 

and the national deficits are just a few of the fiascos | 
piled up, waiting to be tackled. Yet, they snowball | 
into larger, more perplexing issues. "We're just trying ; 
to pick up the pieces, is there a label for that?" 
questioned Paul Nekoranik, a junior physics major. 

Also, the precipitous decline in births may soon 
give America a slop in the face when today's young 
adults venture out into the work force. Our numbers 
ore so scarce compared to our forerunners, it could 
result in serious labor shortages in the coming years. 

But, instead of continuing the Baby Boomer tradi- 
tion. Baby Busters are already changing the norm. 
Trend trackers already report the growing opposi- 
tion towards corporate ladders, BMWs, and social 
revolutions. Prestige, along with Cuisinarts and 
Rolexes, hove become passe. 

Baby Busters are trading ulcers, heart disease and,' 
stress for more fulfilling jobs and increased leisure ' 
time. The expression "One should work to live; not 
live to work" has become a popular way of life. 
Baby Busters simply wont to take bock those 
sacred, work-free weekends and demand more 
leisure time to enjoy the fruits of their labors. 

It is not that we do not wont to give something 
back to society. But, we are not sure where to 
begin. There is no John F. Kennedy or Martin Luther 
King to study and follow. The twentysomething 
generation does not have the heros, role models 
and leaders the Baby Boomers looked up to. So far, 
one role model has been Donald Trump, president 
of the "greed is good" club. But, we need a leader 
with real ideals. 

Since we suddenly switched from kickbacks (in| 
the 80's) to cutbacks for the 90's, we hove been 
described as a lost generation. Maybe we con turn 
these budget cuts and reductions into some sort of 
positive growth. 

The Lost Generation of the 1920's was disen- 
chanted with the mindless pursuit of material wealth 
and riches. However, from that rebellion came on 
abundance of creative expression, despite the -i 
political, economic and social decline. For example, Ij 
F. Scott Fitzgerald created his masterpiece "The ' 
Great Gatsby," which reflected the 1920's anti- 
materialistic sentiments. Frank Lloyd Wright in- , 
troduced incredible architectural designs. And we ' 
cannot forget the contributions of Virginia Woolfe, 
T.S. Eliot, Kotherine Mansfield or D.H. Lawrence. 

We hove the beginnings of a very capable i 
generation. Volunteerism, individualism, and diversi- 
ty have become a major part of today's college 
learning experience. But, with this beginning, we also 
need to look bock into history for a bit of direction. It 
is time to take our promising advances and take a 
leap into addressing some problems full force. The 
late John F. Kennedy once said, "Ask not what your 
country can do for you; but what you can do for 
your country." This phrase is often used, but not 
overused. In our circumstances, it fits quite well as 
advice the twentysomething generation must 
heed. So, let's get the ball rolling, already!

The. Year 

Americans will not soon forget the time wtien thie hiighiest 
judicial body in thie land was viewed by many as an interna- 
tionally televised thiree-ring circus. Whien the accusations of an 
intelligent, respected and poised law professor gained the 
power to obliterate the future of an equally revered justice pro- 
fessional. When words describing bizarre sexual acts and 
larger-than-life genital organs were flung across the white 
backdrop of the Senate Judiciary hearings room like paper 
airplanes in a classroom, and thrown into the arena of live media 
coverage for vindication or condemnation. 

Neither accused or accuser came to the table with a signifi- 
cant amount of tangible evidence in support of their riveting 
testimony. Evidence which, in a formal trial, is necessary to prove 
guilt over presumed innocence. But this was not a trial. Observers 
were forced to cost their judgement based not on facts but on 
grave stares, bitter rebuttals, convincing expressions and 
sweat-lodened brows. The line separating virtue and vice was 
impossible to draw with certainty. The only possible conclusion to 
this wrenching ordeal was simply that one was lying and one was 
telling the truth. But, America knew that from the start. 

"I would have preferred on assassin's bullet to this kind of living 
hell," said 43-year-old Supreme Court nominee Clarence 
Thomas of the October 1991 hearings which voiced the lO 

-year-old accusations of sexual harassment unearthed b' 
University of Oklahoma low professor Anita Hill. 

"There is no motivation to show I'd make something like thi 
up," replied Hill, a former employee of Thomas, in her owi 
defense. Hill alleged that Thomas approached her with sexuc 
advances and explicitly pornographic dialogue while working 
under his tutelage at the Department of Education and th( 
Equal Opportunity Commission between 1981 and 1983. 

"I am incapable of proving the negative. It did not occur, 
Thomas said, regarding the proceedings as a "high-tech lyn 
ching for uppity blacks." 

Members of the judiciary committee, including chairmai 
Senator Joseph Biden, faced the same dilemma confronted b 
millions of television viewers, who were similarly puzzled by th( 
seemingly beleivable accounts of either participant. 

Clarence Thomas was confirmed to serve as a justice of th( 
United States Supreme Court on October 15, 1991 by a 52-4. 
margin, the closest vote for a winning nominee in llO year: 
Thomas said he would rather die than relinquish this opportunity 
But neither he nor his former colleague will likely ever be able t( 
shake the personal ramifications of this nationally embarrasinc 


in Review 

Seventy-four years of communist rule came to a dramatic end 
T the Soviet Union on August 28, 1991 as a group of desperate 
jnd unorganized h\Qh party officials failed in thieir attempt to 
mother the embers of democracy and entrepreneurship that 
hreatened their right-wing communist regime. 

In its early, formative stages, the coup d'etat emitted jets of 
team for some time before the plan actually blew its top. The 
jight "coup)-plotters," old-liners of power and stature within the 
"ommunist Party who served directly under Soviet President 
/likhail Gorbachev, feared Gorbachev's reforms would threaten 
heir position in Soviet politics. But the fire under their feet was lit in 
\ugust when Gorbachev proposed a "union treaty" which 
vould decentralize the Soviet government and grant economic 
^dependence to its 15 individual republics. The party defenders 
attempted to oust their leader, Gorbachev, from office before 
he treaty could be signed and thus destroy their privileged elite 
)ositions within the age-old bureaucracy. 

People around the world watched and waited for three days 
or the smoke to clear. Official Soviet reports claimed the presi- 
Jent was ill and unable to perform his duties. Actually, Gor- 
)achev and his family were being detained at their summer 

home on the Crimea by a gang of coup-plotters. So who was in 
charge, then? Vice President Gennady Yonayev announced he 
would assume the presidency. 

But this scenario would not last for long. The popularly elected 
Russian President Boris Yeltsin, discreetly operating out of the Rus- 
sian Federation Building, rallied support for the Soviet people 
gathered in the streets from atop an army tank. Yeltsin, with his 
fist high in the air, successfully urged young Soviet troops to put 
down their guns and oppose the coup. Protestors swiftly began 
to erect tank barriers around the perimeter of the Soviet parlia- 
ment building. 

The Communist plot rapidly unraveled as coup-imposed cen- 
sorship over the Soviet medio failed to deter the foreign press 
from illuminating the truth. Because otter all, the truth is what the 
people want. 

Soviets hove been waiting years for their government to follow 
through on its numerous empty promises. Though the events of 
August 1991 mode a great impact on the future of Soviet life and 
liberty, it will take a long time for the nation to build a solid foun- 
dation for its people to sleep comfortably on during cold Soviet 


"No More Cuts!" 

Thousands of angry students, staff and faculty members 
donned sandwicti boards in stead of Halloween costumes 
on October 31 to protest thie $40 million in state-mandated 
university budget cuts implemented over the past two 
years. About 1500 people, many of whom had lost their 
jobs or their major due to budget cuts, gathered in front of 
the Student Union at lunchtime before proceeding to Main 
Administration and down the Route. The protest, organized 
by SGA President Paul Carlson, marked the first unified 
movement demanding an end to the continued elimination 
of funding and educational programs at the university. 

As frustrations intensified and grew more vocal, the 
momentum of protest swept the University into the media 

spotlight. On November 11, the anthropology department 
sponsored a rally that drew a crowd of about 3,000 and 
resulted in the arrest of 12 protestors who blocked traffic on 
Route One. Ralliers included members of the English depart- 
ment, who organized their own protest in front of the South 
Campus Surge Building earlier that morning. 

The Annapolis stotehouse lawn was covered by outraged 
students, faculty and staff on November 14 as about 600 
attempted to drive their message home to Governor 
William Donald Schaefer. The Maryland General Assembly 
was not in session, however, and campus turnout was less 
than had been expected. 

When You Wish Upon a Star... 

Walt Disney World, the real-life fairy-tale land of magic, mice and fun, celebrated its 
20th birthday on October 1 in Orlando, Florida with a multitude of fireworks and fanfare. 

All the classic Disney characters were present, including Mickey and Minnie Mouse, 
Pinocchio, and Chip and Dale, as well as the recently star-struck Roger Rabbit. A "Spec- 
troMogic" parade sparked the night air as thousands of amazed visitors watched 
Mickey float down Main Street on a cloud of glowing light. 

Eighty million Americans have experienced Disney World at some point in their lives. 
Even after 20 years, Disney's masterpiece remains a living, forever expanding symbol of 
hope and beauty in a fast-paced world where life is seldom a paradise.

AIDS Statistics 

People die from AIDS; numbers don't. 

The names, faces, hobbies, interests and goals 
of 32 individuals who died from AIDS were 
displayed in the Student Union lost October in a 
patchwork of colorful panels. 

Three of the panels represented the lives of 
people who were directly involved with the 
university. The quilt was provided by the NAMES 
Project Chapter of the National Capitol Area to 
serve as a reminder of AIDS awareness week, 
which lasted from November 11-16. 

At that time, the national AIDS quilt contained 
14,000 of the three-by-six foot panels. In Oc- 
tober of 1992, the entire 120,000-panel interna- 
tional AIDS quilt will be displayed in Washington, 

Basketbell superstar Earvin "Magic" Johnson, known for 
his sparkling smile and mastery of the court announced 
on November 7 he had contracted the AIDS virus and 
was retiring from professional basketball. 

"This is not like my life is over, because it's not," Johnson 
stated at a press conference at Great Western Forum, his 
12-year home as a Los Angeles Laker. The three-time 
Most Valuable Player winner, still carrying that magical 
smile, camly reassured the public that he would continue 
to be active in other aspects of the game. 

Johnson, 32, said he did not yet exerience any com- 
plications from the disease, but was urgged to retire from 
professional play by his physician, Michael Mellmon. 
Mellman said the rigors of training would weaken 
Johnson's physical condition and hasten the onset of

at the age of 87. 

Known by most as Dr. Seuss, the Pulitzer Prize- 
winning children's author wrote 47 books that 
touched the lives of people of all ages. Geisel's 
stories, such as ...And to Think I Saw it on Mulberry 
Street and Ttie Lorax, delivered universal moral 
lessons of respect, honesty and integrity with sen- 
sitivity, humor and character.

The meaning of life...Greek life, that is, 
may appear to consist solely of beer, par- 
ties, and fraternity row. But to over 300 
Greeks at Maryland, Greek life is much 
deeper than that. It means not only fun, 
but togetherness, responsibility to the 
house and to the community and 
building a foundation for life after college. 

In the area of scholarship, Greeks have 
been known to excel. Many Greeks are 
members of such honorary societies as 
the Golden Key National Honor Society, 
Mortar Board, and Omicron Delta Kappa. 
The all-greek GPA is usually very com- 
petitive with the all-campus GPA. The 
Inter-Fraternity Council further promoted 
that fact this year by raising the require- 
ment for initiation to a 2.5 GPA. 

This is rvDt to claim that Greek life is 
completely serious, either. The following 
pages contain only a fraction of the 
many activities that Greeks partake in. 
For example, Faternity and Sorority Rush, 
Homecoming, Greek Week, and various 


Greek Togethermss 

Parties, drinking and more parties. Most 
people on campus believe ttnot is what 
fraternities and sororities are all about. But 
there is more to it than that, much more. 
Yes, there is the social aspect, but 
members are often very active in other 
parts of the university including athletics, 
academics and campus clubs. 

One of the most important ports of be- 
ing a member of a fraternity or a sorority 
is the brotherhood, or sisterhood aspect 
of them. The closeness that each 
member of any house shares with the 
other brothers or sisters of that house. 
Many members believe that this is the 
most important aspect of being a 
brother, or sister. 

The brotherhood, or sisterhood aspect 
meant different things to different peo- 
ple. To some it brought about the feeling 
of family away from family. Sigma Kappa 
member, Gwen Werbowsky said that 
since she isn't from Maryland, the 
sisterhood part of her sorority brought her 
that closeness that she might be missing. 

'The (the sisters) ore like my family 
away from home. They give me 
everything I need; support and friendship. 

It's a very special feeling," said 

Beta Theto Pi fraternity brother Greg 
Moss echoed that sentiment by saying, 
"During pledging we learn things to reach 
the brotherhood, but once initiation hap- 
pens, it's like you've got a new big family. 
Everyone is there for everyone else." 

Many fraternities and sororities had cer- 
tain activities geared towards 
strengthening the feelings of 
brotherhood and sisterhood. The most 
popular way is retreats in which the 
whole house tries to go away for a night 
or weekend. 

"Retreats are a really good way of get- 
ting to know everyone better," said 
Alpha Delta Pi sister, Leonore Cotalla. 
"We spend the day together and get to 
know each other better. It (retreats) br- 
ings us closer together," she said. 

Brotherhood or sisterhood is just one 
way that fraternities and sororities try to 
bring all the members together in 
strengthening the house. 

"If you every need anything, the other 
sisters ore always willing to do anything 
for you," said Werbowsky.

To some. Rush seems like a negative 
thing. All the fuss, the seemingly endless 
competition, the hype and what seems 
like a million endlessly superficial conver- 
sations. Yet somehow, many people 
came out of Rush with some of the best 
memories of their college career. 

Rush is approximately a two-week pro- 
cess, where rushees visit Maryland's 18 
sororties and, as the weeks progress, nar- 
row them down to 12, then to six, and then 
finally to the three sororities that they like 
the best. 

Why does it take two weeks? The pro- 
cess is long because there are so many 
sororities at Maryland. Not having oil this 
time to go to each house and see what 
each is oil about would be just about as 
bad as picking a college without visiting it 
first. So, the process is long. As rushees, 
girls try to impress the sisters of the 
respective houses. Sisters of the houses in 
turn, try to impress the rushees. 

However, it is what is NOT seen at fir ' 
glance that is the most important pa 
the conversations that go on inside th 
houses. As a rushee advances furthc 
and further into the Rush process, or 
finds herself making friends almost in spH 
of herself. 

The best part of Rush was Preference 
This is when the girls visited their three tc 
choices, in one night, spending over or 
hour at each house. This is the night whe 
the girls get to find out what the siste 
are really like. The hype from the fir 
week of Rush is gone, replaced by mor 
serious talks and demonstrations of th 
sorority's sisterhood. This is when most ( 
the girls finally try to decide which hous 
will be the best for them. 

The next big thing is Bid Day, when all ( 
the rushees found out if they were invite 
to pledge the house that they real 
wanted to. 

Whether rushees get into the hous 
that they really wanted or maybe the 
second choice, they experience 
something that not every person on th 
campus got to experience, a feeling c 
fun, and maybe even something mor 
important, a feeling of gaining ne^ 
friendships that will last them for a ver 
long time.

Resident life 

Living on campus at College Park is a 
unique experience. From freshmen to 
seniors, friendships grow out of the little 
things we do together. Walking down to 
the Route on a sunny afternoon, playing 
volleyball on LaPlata Beach, throwing a 
frisbee on the chapel lawn, or just hang- 
ing out eating pizza all have the magical 
effect of drawing us together. 

Students are here because they seek 
new experiences, excitement, 
camaraderie and satisfaction. Each and 
every student is a mature individual 
whose needs, concerns, values, hopes 
and joys are respected. 

Playing together helps students relax 
and keep their lives in focus at times 
when the pressures of college seem too 
difficult to handle alone. Working 
together encourages the mind to ex- 
pand and learn. But, even just living 
together makes one realize that uni- 
queness is a virtue to be rewarded.

Routine journeys to the dining hall were relative- 
ly uneventful for most hungry campus residents. 
But, for Cambridge Community residents, this dai- 
ly trip became a unique challenge. 

Many a student strolling along the paths on the 
south side of Cumberland, towards Ellicott Diner, 
has suddenly felt a rush of cold water burst on 
them. You were a source of target practice for 
Cumberland's own eighth floor missile hurlers. 

Anyone living in Cambridge Community quickly 
learned to keep a watchful eye for airborne pro- 
jectiles when venturing past Cumberland. 
Multicolor water-balloon condoms were olways' 
a favorite, along with shaving cream, carry-out 
containers filled with spaghetti casserole, 
chocolate cream pie and various other menu 

What is the meaning of this nonsense? Perhaps it 
is a post-exam tension reliever. Or maybe an ex- 
pressive outlet for those closet B-52 Bomber 
junkies. Some have suggested that shoving un- 
wanted food out the window is an ethical 
response to the bimonthly point limit on the meal 
plan. But no matter what the underlying rationale, 
Cambridge residents could be seen walking 
towards Ellicott Diner with meal cards in hand 
and umbrellas as protection from rejected meals.

Residents of Cambridge Community were very active in 
intramural sports as well as programs organized by CAC to 
promote social awareness, self-improvement and com- 
munity service. 

"Into thie Streets," a new committee formed thiis year, 
brought student volunteers to area nursing hiomes and 
chiildren's hiospitols to give love and comfort to the elderly 
and to adolescent victims of AIDS or drug addiction. 

Another program, "Living in a Diverse Community - 
Creating a Common Ground," was the theme for Diversity 
Week (Oct. 18-23) this year, featuring a homosexuality 
owareness program. 

"Get it," a campus-wide program, also encouraged com- 
munity involvement by awarding cash prizes of up to 
$2500 to resident hall units that attended the most ex- 
tracurricular campus events and showed the most spirit. 
(Congratulations to Centreville-D...the winners of last spr- 
ing's 1st prize!) The program culminated with the Baltimore 
Inner Harbor boot cruise, a sell-out every year. 

Cambridge Community Center hosts "Finals Relief" each 
semester, offering snacks and a chance to unwind to weary 
studiers. Also, during "Olympic Weekend," residents played 
crazy games, revved-up for spring semester finals...and 
summer vocation! 


Denton was considered more community-oriented than othier 
residence hall areas. Due to its location on the outer reaches of cam- 
pus, Denton Community focused heavily on programming innovative 
social, safety, and awareness activities to foster community spirit. 

For example, Easton RA's developed C.A.R.E. (Caring About 
Residents of Easton), a group which held safety programs covering 
such topics as self-defense and drug awareness. Last year, Denton 
was extremely active in campus blood drives and even won an award 
for their participation. In addition, Easton RA's were recognized for 
"Easton Hall We Earn Our A's", a series of programs designed to unite 
students in the areas of athletics, academics, awareness and 

Social programs were also very important to Denton residents. The 
Easton Hall Council hosted a "Dating Gome." Other hall councils tradi- 
tionally organize Halloween trick-or-treating parties for children of 
local homeless shelters, including a haunted house, topped off with a 
free dinner at Denton Dining Hall. 




Question: What is the funniest or most 
unusual thing that has happened to 
you living in Denton Community? 

"One night this guy came out of Denton with | 
on electric guitar. He had it hooked up to his 
room somehow, because the music seemed 
to be coming from on 8th floor window. He 
walked around playing the guitar, asking 
everyone if they wanted to form a band. He 
was really good!" -Keith Ingersoll, freshman 

"The 3rd and 8th floor R.A.'s in Elkton had o 
program about sex-everything you always 
wanted to know. A lot of people showed up!" 
-David Thomas, freshman

Residents of Ellicott Community hod many reasons to be ttiankful 
and proud of their community. After all, their flagship residence hall 
had a doily cartoon named offer it. La Plato women hove a mere 
lO-second walk to the convenience store. Ellicott residents never 
have to fear being short on cash on a Friday night because of a 
MOST machine right outside their front door. To top it all off, Ellicott 
Diner has o 50's-style jukebox that ploys selections from Elvis to Billy 
Joel. What more could anyone ask for? 

The onnuol spring Beach Week celebration offered a variety of 
unique gomes and entertainment. Some of the favorites were 
weight lifting competitions, Jello wrestling, ond comedy perfor- 
mances by Erasable, Inc. 

Ellicott also has a strong tradition of community service and 
awareness programs. Each year during Halloween week, Ellicott 
volunteers escort inner-city children from the Washington 
metropolitan area through their community's residence halls for a 
fun-filled afternoon of trick-or-treoting. 

Block Students of North Campus (originally Block Students of 
Ellicoff Community) is on organization which oims to provide 
students with support and progroms that transcend troditionol 
Black History Month activities. In November, BSNC sponsored o Rela- 
tionship Forum, and later hosted on open house which united 
students, faculty and administrators to discuss career goals, 
academic planning and other topics of interest. Though open to oil 
North Campus residents, BSNC events ore primarily organized by 
representatives from Ellicott Community.

Queen Anne^s 




The North Hill Area Council is responsible for organizing a large number of 
events. For example, two or three times each semester, the coucil invited a 
prominent faculty member or administrator as a guest lecturer for its Dinner 
Series. Anyv»/here from 15 to 20 residents participate in the program, providing 
a discussion of interesting topics in a casual atmosphere. 

R.A.'s in Queen Anne's Hall showed a series of videos on drug abuse and 
awareness, entitling the program. "An Essay on Drugs." R.A.'s in other halls also 
offered an array of unique programs on current issues such as intercultural 

Residents of Worcester and Dorchester Halls took a field trip to Tawes 
Theater this fall to see Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream." This ac- 
tivity was especially worthwhile as distinguished faculty members were invited 
to see the play and discuss it with the students. 

The North Hill Area Council sponsored a major Halloween festival for a local 
children's home. The youngsters were treated to a party, a haunted house, 
face painting and, of course, the traditional crusade for goodies. 

But, as fall finals drew near. North Hill students rubbed Testudo for good luck 
on their exams...and hoped their "holiday buddy" brought them a gift to 
brighten their spirits and get them psyched for winter break!

unique aspect of living in North Hill? 

Anne Anindd The Honors Honse 

In the fall of 1992, approx- 
imately 125 University Honors

room as well as an all- 
purpose room and study 

"The buildings are smaller, so you're able 
to get to know groups of people better." 
-Robin Walters, junior 

"It's close to everything- thaf s why I mov- 
ed here (from the high rises). The tone is a 
lot more mature and sedate...people do 
more cultural things. It's not as high-stress as 
the high rises." -Julie Sieracki, senior 

"I'm a music major, so it's a great location 
(being near Tawes Theater). If you wake up 
late, you can just run right outside to your 
class." -Jason Dubow, junior

Tfte Grand C^aiing 

The International House (l-House) 
was officially christened on October 
2, 1991 with a traditional ribbon- 
cutting ceremony celebrating its 
grand opening. Over two hundred 
faculty members, distinguished 
guests and students gathered to 
herald in a product of their hard 

"For many, this is like a dream 
come true," said Valerie Woolston, 
Director of International Education 
Services. In the midst of a tense 
budget situation. President Kirwan 
expressed a sigh of relief that Dor- 
chester was able to open its doors. 
Attendants applauded the dedica- 
tion and persistance of more than 
22 offices whose efforts brought the 
program to its successful 

The traditional ribbon-cutting 

"You've been given the oppor- 
tunity - now it's your job to take the 
boll and carry it," said His Excellency, 
W. Susonto de Alwis, of the Sri 
Lankan Embassy, one of several 
foreign ambassadors attending the 
celebration. All students must fulfill 
their responsibility as membes of an 
international community, h^ stress- 
ed, by gaining exposure to the rest 
of the world. 

Senior Ralph Brenner, president of 
the l-House Council, discussed some 
of the committees and special 
events planned to promote unity, 
friendship and fun. An official I- 
House T-shirt and flag and interna- 
tional fashion show were planned, 
among other events. 

The colorful rooms of l-House 
students are adorned with notional 
flogs, cultural posters and artwork of 
all kinds. Memo boards overflow 
with greetings written in foreign 
languages. l-House students are ob- 
viously enthusiastic and proud of 
their heritage. 

"There's more spirit and involve- 
ment here than I've ever seen," said 
Brenner, "There's so much going on, 
it's a challenge to keep up with it - 
but a very welcome challenge." 


Intematiormf House 

We are all proud this year to welcome 
Dorchester International House into the 
community of residence halls here at 

Designed in the traditional resident hall 
fashion, Dorchester houses approximate- 
ly 155 students who come from the Unitec 
States and 32 foreign countries. 

The International House in essence was 
conceived as a microcosm of the Univer-| 
sity - a heterogeneous mixture of peoplel 
from all over the world who come 
together to live, work, play and share 
their distinct cultural lifestyles with one 

A valuable asset to Dorchester 
residents are the visiting scholars who live 
in an apartment within the bulding tot 
several weeks at a time. The scholars are 
research faculty who choose to live! 
among fellow students with the hope o1 
helping them to learn from their schoiarlyi 
expertise, personal experience as well as 
becoming a good friend. 

Dorchester residents are not requirea 
to speak a foreign language. They only 
need to express a strong desire to furthei 
their multicultural exposure and to con- 
tribute personal experiences as c 
member of the International House. 

"It's the closest thing to octuolly living in a 
foreign country." - Eric Wert, sophomore, 
Spanish cluster. 

"Our abilites have improved tenfold." 
"Living here requires a certain level of 

maturity." - David Mandell, senior, Spanish 


"It's a real classy place to live." 

"When you're speaking Hebrew, you feel like 
c part of the land." - Lew Fontek. junior, 
Hebrew cluster. 

"The language embraces us - it brings us all 
together." - Andrew Gutman, junior, Hebrew 

"If I hadn't studied here. I would have been 
lost in Italy." - Jennifer Bates, senior, Italian 


Lanquaqe House 

Probably the next best thing to studying abroad is living in St. Mary's 
Language House. Residents experience "language immersion" on a daily 
basis. The 91 students shore 19 apartments that are divided into seven clusters, 
each speaking in a different tongue. French, German, Hebrew, Italian. 
Japanese, Russian and Spanish are spoken. Students communicate within 
their cluster solely in their respective language, although individual units inter- 
relate using English. 

There is a strong sense of community at St. Mary's because of a common 
goal to become masters of a language and to experience a little of the 
world's cultural diversity. Members of the Hebrew cluster, for example, 
schedule hall meetings to coincide with Jewish religious celebrations. Students 
frequently cook native dishes together and converse in a friendly 

A live-in graduate student leads each language cluster. They interact as 
fellow students, mentors, and friends. 

St. Mary's has undergone significant technlogical improvements over the 
post few years, A computer system was added as well as a satellite dish that 
receives international television broadcasts. To strengthen their understanding 
of world history and events, residents visit national embassies and guest 
speakers come from Washington and beyond. Such resources ore part of an 
effort to make St. Mary's a distinctive place to grow and learn. 

...OS Citizens 

Many undergraduates spent their first year or two on campus in the high 
rises, surrounded by numerous students, sharing many of the some intellectual 
and social needs. 

But once junior year rolls around, students have developed an established 
group of friends and become secure in their career goals. Such students often 
choose to reside in a South Hill suite or apartment. 

First, students must live on campus four semesters before they are eligible to 
apply for a room in South Hill. Here, residents enjoy a private, independent 
lifestyle, while reaping the benefits and conveniences of living on campus. 
Students in apartments ore not required to be on the meal plan, and thus 
have the opportunity to do their own cool<ing. 

Varsity football and basketball players are grouped together in separate 
suites dispersed throughout the community. But despite rigid practice and 
class schedules, they made time to get involved in area events. 

For example, the annual Spring Basketball Tournament gave varsity athletes 
the chance to be "coach for a day." The competition between area residents 
is traditionally held on the Washington quad court and has continued to be a 
shining success. 

South Hill residents socialize in an intimate, home-style atmosphere. The 
fireside lounge in the Annapolis Hall community center provides a cozy living- 
room environment where residents can relax, study or just snuggle by the 
warmth of a fire. Also, residents work out in the community's fitness center, 
available to South Hill residents.

unique aspect of living in South Hill?

Adele H. Stamo Union 

Director: Dr. James Osteon 

The Adele H. Stamp Student Union 
serves as the center of campus life for 
the entire University community. Over its 
40 year history, the Union has grown from 
a small recreation center into the promi- 
nent source of social, educational, and 
recreational activity for the campus. To- 
day, the Union provides a diverse range 
of programs and services used by over 
19,000 people doily. Such programs vary

restaurants; all of which provide a 
welcome relief from academic pressures. 

Guest Services 

Director: Patrick Perfetto 

When the students left campus in May, 
Campus Guest Services opened the 
doors of campus dorms to summer 
guests. Most guests come to attend con- 
ferences held at the University while 
others attended sports camps, 
Pan-Hellenic events, college preparatory 
programs and even religious con- 
ferences. The low cost and variety of 
facilities available at the University were 
attractive reasons for choosing the 
University instead of a conference

Five hundred years ago, in 1492, Chris- 
topher Columbus left behind the only 
world he knew to sail off and discover a 
new world Now as we graduate, we too 
must leave behind the safe and familiar 
world of the University of Maryland and 
set off over the horizon to discover new 

Yet it does not seem that long ago 
since we first entered the University of 
Maryland as scared, nervous freshmen or 
transfer students When we first came 
here the campus appeared huge and 
overwhelming. We got lost going to class 
on the first day, mispronounced "Talia- 
ferro Building", and did not know how to 
waitlist Worst of all we knew hardly 

Since then we have learned how to 
handle any situation the university might 
throw at us. We have survived waitlisting 
in the Armory, finding a parking space in 
the crowded lot 1 , and stayed up all night 
writing term papers. We even survived 
severe budget cuts that threatened the 
demise of several departments, major 
construction that left the campus one gi- 
ant mud puddle, and tougher standards 
which the university has established to 
become a top ten school. 

Despite all the heartaches that Mary- 
land has caused us, it has become home 
to us. and we will miss it. As we graduate, 
we leave behind the beauty of the flow- 
ering M and the lush McKeldin Mall on 
spring days. We shall miss the companion- 
ship of our friends, the advice of our men- 
tors, and the freedom of being an 
undergraduate student. We will leave 
behind the immense wealth of knowl- 
edge this institution has to offer. Luckily, 
during our stay here, we captured some 
of that knowledge to take with us. 

Now, watch out world here we come! 
After four... or five... or six years here, we 
ore finally graduating!

Mary Margaret Pessoney, or Mimi as 
she likes to be called, has accomplished 
quite a few goals during her college 

Pessoney, President of the International 
Honor Society for education students is 
an elementary education major. In addi- 
tion, she would like to incorporate both 
her bilingual and teaching skills to pursue 
her dream. 

Pessoney transferred to Maryland from 
Willenburg College, a small liberal arts 
college in Ohio. At Willenburg, she swam 
competitively on the school team. She 
was also a member of the University of 
Maryland swim team for one and a half 
years, although she was not a com- 
petitive swimmer. 

After graduation, Pessoney plans to at- 
tend graduate school. Her inclination is to 
study TOEFL, the teaching of English as a 
foreign language.

To GRE or not to GRE, that is ttie ques- 
tion many of us hove faced with the ap- 
proach of graduation. Grad school, law 
school, med school, or the "real world." 
What is more noble to choose? 

It was just yesterday that we were sit- 
ting, listening to our orientation advisors 
speak about the great rewards we would 
reap when four, five, maybe six years into 
the future. 

Now that graduation is upon us, we 
realize one degree may not be enough. 
With today's economy and the ever 
worsening recession, even if we were 
qualified for a job, we wouldn't be able to 
find one. What to do, what to do? 


O.K., if were only that simple. First, one 
must take the GRE, LSAT, MOAT, or GMAT. 
But taking the test is one thing, doing well 
is another. Months of work goes into the 
preparation for these tests. We go to a 
prep class and spend hundreds of dollars 
and hours having someone teach us the 
things we should remember from high 
school and college. 

More importantly we are forced to do 
well because of the time, money, and ef- 
fort spent in taking these classes. 

The next step is getting letters of 
recommendation. We play phone and 
hall tog with our past and present pro- 

fessors trying to cause them to 
remember us and recommend us highly. 
Then what happens? They turn it around 
and tell us to write a mock letter sum- 
marizing our achievements. The pro- 
fessors wont us to remind them what we 
did in class. To lie or not to lie... 

Then we hove to face the admission 
boards and deal with application 
deadlines. We can scream as loud as we 
like, but most schools could not care less 
about professors on leave, GRE test 
dates, and transcript changes. If our 
complete, unabridged, undivided ap- 
plications don't reach their desks by the 
superimposed deadlines, forget it! 

Sometimes a miracle happens and we 
ore able to juggle classes, finals and ap- 
plication deadlines and we do get in. 

Sometimes "things" happen. We may 
have to break the news to our parents 
and tell them that we weren't accepted 
into a graduate program, anywhere. 
Much worse, we may have to tell them 
that until we land that job at the super- 
market, we will be moving bock home 
and be needing their support again. Or 
we may choose to take a course or two 
again and revamp our career dreams. 
No matter what happens, we do end up 
facing that much dreaded "real world" 
but unlike Hamlet, we will survive.

After 15 years of family life, Karen Kaut- 
sky decided to attend college for the first 
time in her life. Kautsky started a family 
right out of high school, but when the 
oldest of her three sons hod graduated 
from college, she decided that it was her 
turn to continue her education. "Initially, I 
was embarrassed about going to col- 
lege, but it hod been a personal goal for 
about 25 years," 

The college experience helped to build 
upon Kautsky's self-esteem. "It mode me 
feel capable and empowered. This was 
important to me because in our society, 
housewives are often unappreciated 
and taken for granted," she said, 

Kautsky's college career began, when 
she started taking classes at Lord Fairfax 
Community College, She then transferred 
to Montgomery College and graduated 
with a 3.853 grade point overage. Kaut- 
sky started attending UMCP in the Spring 
of 1990. 

Once here, Kautsky created on In- 
dividual Studies major in Women's Studies, 
under the direction fo Dr. Earleen McCor- 
rick. Associate Professor of Government 
and Politics. The theme of Kautsky's major 
was the "Present State of the Economy 



and Women's Issues." 

Kautsky attributes her successful col- 
lege career to the Individual Studies 
department. The support and compa- 
nionship of faculty enhanced her educa- 
tion and experience, "The department 
wasn't the typical, cold setting, but was 
open to discussion and self-expression. 
Since there ore few Individual Studies ma- 
jors, students had the feeling of a small 
school but the advantages of a large 
university," she said. 

Kautsky has been chosen to be the stu- 
dent speaker for the General and In- 
dividual Studies Commencement exer- 
cises. She then plans to pursue a 
graduate program in counseling or 
history. She would like to either counsel 
women or teach history from a feminist 
viewpoint. Kautsky has very strong feel- 
ings about the women's movement and 
believes that women must "recognize 
their differences and learn to work with 
each other." 

Kautsky has managed to achieve an 
outstanding academic record while 
managing a busy household, and is a 
wonderful role model for any returning 
women students.

Whether they liked it or not, the 
graduating class of 1992 was forced to 
bow to the constraints of a thining job 
market. Thanks to a notional economy 
with all the pep of a two-toed sloth, some 
of Maryland's fonts of talent temporarily 
capped their dream careers to make 
their parting with College Park as 
lucrative and productive as possible. 

In the true spirit of Terrapin Power;! 
however, all was not lost. Graduates 
learned quickly to deal with the present 
and make the most of a society 
dampened by the recessionary blues. 

hasn't really bothered me," sale 
Land Wu, 22, of the economic slump. " 
was flexible." 

Flexibility was the key to finding post- 
graduation employment. Wu, a double 
major in transportation and accounting 
accepted a job with a mortgage bank- 
ing firm in January because no position; 
could be found in the field of transporta- 
tion, he said. "I didn't have one particulai 
job in mind. I thought transportation wa; 
interesting,. . . (but) my job now has ab- 
solutely nothing to do witt 

Optimism may have been a saintl'i 
quality for many grods, but Wu did not le 
the future get him down. "Psychological 
ly, a lot of people think the economy i: 
really bod," he said. "But there are plenh 
of jobs out there. You can't be picky. Job._ 
hould be opening up pretty soon."

It is the day before thie calculus 
homework is due, and like many other 
students, senior Grady Wilson Miller hurries 
to finish the assignment. In this case, there 
is one exception. Miller is not enrolled m 
the class, he is helping teach it. 

This past year. Miller was one of two 
undergraduate mathematics majors who 
worked as a teaching assistant for 
Calculus 140 and 141. "It felt weird to be 
on the other side of the student-teacher 
relationship," Miller said. 

Teaching made Miller more ap- 
preciative of what his own teachers do. "I 
used to think that if I ever taught. I would 
be real methodical, and not get chalk all 
over me." said Miller. "But it's not that 

Miller entered the University of 
Maryland in the Fall of 1988 on a full 
scholarship as an engineering major. His 
first year here, he found himself enjoying 
his moth classes so much that he decid- 
ed to double major in math and 

By his junior year. Miller decided that 
the math interested him more than the 
engineering, and he chose to major only 
in math. 

People urged Miller to stick with 
engineering, telling him that "if you're 
good at it, you should do it because you 
can make a lot of money.' Knowing that 
he would not be happy as an engineer, 
Miller decided to follow his heart and 
concentrate on math. 

"You have to do things because you 
want to. not because others want you 
to." Miller explained. 

Despite his rigorous academic 
schedule. Miller mode time for extracur- 
ricular activities. Since his freshman year. 
Miller has sung in the Generics, the univer- 
sity's acappello group. Additionally, this 
past summer, he traveled to Australia 
where he studied ecology. 

After graduation in May. Miller plans to 
travel more, taking a six to eight month 
trip around the world. When he returns 
from his trip. Miller plans to attend 
graduate school in either math or physics. 
Eventually. Miller would like to be a pro- 
fessor, and his teaching experience here 
has reaffirmed this desire. 

Says Miller. "Teaching is a challenge. 
but it is very rewarding. It requires a great 
deal of preparation and time, but it's 
worth it," 



Conquering that first major job inter- 
view con be as challenging as the job 
itself. At some point in our lives, we've all 
encountered situations where presenta- 
tion is everything - a first date, the prom, 
dinner with your fiancee's parents. . . the 
list is endless. But when sitting across the 
table from a potential boss, it takes more 
than a fancy tie or a new silk dress to im- 
press and convince that person that you 
con do the job right. 

Consider the experience of one 
Maryland graduate. Steve Kimbleton, a 
business and decisions information 
systems major, was hired by a consulting 
firm during his senior year. He said that 
while interviewing for this position, he was 
surprised to discover that the interviewer 
was very informative about what the 
company was all about, 

"On my first interview, I did all the talk- 
ing," Kimbleton said. "But on my second 
office visit, they gave me a good feeling 
about my responses." Kimbleton said the 
interviewer offered him tips on how to 
move up in the company ladder, and 
commented thoughtfully on his 
responses. "Getting feedback lets you 
know how you're doing," he said. 

Interviewing is a two-way process. 
Kimbleton said some of the common 
questions asked by interviewers deal with 
extracurricular activities and other 
groups one was involved with in school, 
leadership roles and responsiblity, but 
that few dwell on academics. He observ- 
ed than on-compus recruiters use grades 
as a detrerminant for selection of inter- 
view candidates, but in the actual inter- 
view employers look for more intangible 

"They basically want to see how well 
you communicate," Kimbleton noted. 



"A Mark of Excellence" was the perfect 
phrase to describe the academic division 
of the University of Maryland over the 
past year. 

In spite of massive budget cuts, and the 
phasing out of academic programs. 
University of Maryland continued to 
uphold its high academic standards. 

College Park raised admission stan- 
dards in order to reduce its 
undergraduate enrollment and to im- 
prove the faculty-student ratio. The ob- 
jective was to obtain the very best 
students possible. 

Along with these changes, UMCP of- 
fered over lOO courses of study for those 
students that were academically 
motivated. With 12 different colleges and 
schools, majors ranged from accounting 
to zoology and from chemical engineer- 
ing to Russian area studies. 

This academic diversity helped in- 
crease the status of the University of 
Maryland throughout the nation. Such 
diversity proved to another "Mark of 
Distinction" which made UMCP stand 
proudly above the rest. 

College of Agriculture 


( x)llr,t^r (M A.t^iiculliiic A P)Cll<'t W'oik 1 Toiik )ii()W 

When you think of the College of 
Agriculture, soil, crops, and forms come to 
mind. But this stereotype is slowly fading. 

"Many students are now majoring in 
areas such as environmental science, 
natural resource management, and 
agricultural business," said Dr. William 
Clark. Associate Dean of Agriculture, 
"There is a big market for graduates in 
these majors and students are realizing 
this," said Clark. 

The college is very proud of its land- 
scape agriculture program. According to 
Clark there are only six landscape 
agriculture Ph.d's offered in the United 
States. "Maryland has three of them," 
ooasted Clark. 

The college con also boast of a third 
:;omputer facility being built and the ad- 
dition of a new wing to the animal 
science building. "We are also starting 
construction on a plant science building 
A/hich will be finished in 1993." said Clark, 
rhis building will have spectacular 
teaching facilities and computers." 

The college is highly praised for its 
agricultural business school. "It's a good 

alternative for people who can't get into 
the business school," said Avadesh Gulati, 
a senior agriculture business major. "You 
don't just learn about form manage- 
ment." said Jeff Severe, a junior 
agriculture business major. "Most of the 
people in my classes, including myself, 
have never even been on a form." 

In the last five years the number of 
students enrolled in the college has 
doubled. "Agriculture is changing and o 
big reason is due to the decrease in the 
number of forms," remarks Bean. Because 
of the costs, it is almost impossible for a 
person just out of college to start their 
own farm. "Students ore realizing this and 
focusing not so much on the production 
areas of agriculture such as farming, but 
on research and development," said 
Clark. "There are lots of opportunities out 
there and students hove no problem fin- 
ding jobs in these areas," said Bean. 

In the next ten years. Dr. Clark would 
like to see the college grow, but maintain 
a personal touch. "All of the students 
know each other and we have a sense of 
community that I'd like to maintain."

School of Architecture Designs on the Future 

Physics, mathematics, and the visual 
arts... what program demands talent in all 
three of these challenging subjects? The 
School of Architecture! 

Upon entering the architecture bulding, 
one is bombarded with the signs of ar- 
tistic endeavors and hard work. The 
center of this maze-like structure is 
dominated by the studio, a huge 
workshop area where the students spend 
hours perfecting their creations. The walls 
surrounding the studio are adorned with 
drawings. Offices invariably contain scale 

The school offers not only a Bachelor of 
Science program, but also programs 
leading to two professional degrees or a 
historic preservation certificate. Most 
students take advantage of a variety of 
special study programs. Restoration work 
at the Chalfonte Hotel in New Jersey and 
Kiplin Hall in England beckon those who 
admire past works. Other students elect 
to spend a summer studying in Paris, 
Rome, or Turkey. Some future architects 
participate in archeological explorations 
in Tunisia, Sri Lanka, or even Israel, at the 
harbor of Herod the Great. 

Architecture students benefit from 
other resorces as well. They have their 

own library at the University, the Notional 
Trust for Historic Preservation Library. The 
School of Architecture also sponsors a 
lecture series featuring a number of ac- 
complished architects, professors, and 
authors. Speakers include Michael Dennis, 
a well-known, practicing architect and 
Walter Denny, a professor specializing in 
Ottoman houses and Turkish traditions. 

But perhaps the most frequently used 
resources ore the chairs and couches in 
the building. "There are all-nighters 
before the projects are due. You can see 
people laying out on the couches," said 
graduate student Teri Schoppet. Joseph 
Boquiren, also a graduate student 
agrees, "People sack out-it's hard work. 
We spend most of our lives here during 
the semester." The hard work is worth it, 
though. Joseph Boquiren adds, "I like the 
faculty and people. You're supposed to 
associate with your classmates and 
develop a free exhchange of ideas," as 
opposed to programs that focus on the 
individualistic approach to learning. "It's 
like a family. You know everyone in the 
studio," said Teri Schoppet, describing the 
atmosphere in the School of

College of Arts and Humanities Stresses Diversity 

Literature... languages... history... 
philosphiy... communication... dance... 
thieatre... If these subjects interest you, 
then chances are, you are a member of 
the College of Arts and Humanities. With 
majors in more than two dozen subjects, 
the College of Arts and Humanities 
prepares College Park students for a 
variety of disciplines. 

Arts and Humanities students benefit 
from life in the heart of campus. 
Language students often bask in the sun 
in front of Jiminez Hall. Just across the 
mall, history and English majors lounge in 
the courtyard between Francis Scott Key 
and Taliaferro Hall. Around the corner the 
Art and Dance buildings house their own 
theatre and art gallery. In the center of it 
all, Francis Scott Key is the home of the 
Arts and Humanities office and of liberal 
arts education at College Park. A huge 
mural appears just within the entrance 
and sets the mood for the College. 
Vibrant colors paint a scene from 
Pompeii, in honor of former history 
teacher Wilhelmina Jashemski. Im- 
mediately to the left and right are two 
quotes that embody the philsophy of the 
College: 'life is short, but art is long," from 
Seneca and Hippocrates, and, "There is 
no possession more valuable than 
knowledge," said Meander. The murals in- 
troduce visitors and students alike to the 
humanities tradition. Although the Col- 

lege no longer stresses Greek and Latin 
studies, it has retained the desire to "try 
to help people become better thinkers 
and better expressers of their thoughts," 
said Frank Debernardo, Assistant Director 
of the Writing Center. 

In the process of pursuing this goal, the 
College of Arts and Humanities has form- 
ed a rigorous course of study sup- 
plemented by lecture series, dance per- 
formances, and readings by interna- 
tionally known poets and fiction writers. 
Miroslov Hollub, Molly Tinsley, and Jeffrey 
Harrison were the writers featured this fall. 
The college is also presenting several 
theatrical productions this fall, including 
"Bring Back Broadway" and "A Midsum- 
mer Night's Dream." 

The dance department benefits from 
the presence of Improvisations Unlimited, 
a dance group partly sponsored by the 
College. Director Meriam Rosen praises 
the very active students and faculty here, 
"The students are a small, tightly knit 
group and are very involved in all of the 
activities here in the department. They in- 
itiate a lot of activities," she said. Current- 
ly underway is a project to bring a move- 
ment workshop to special education 
children in the area, in which dancers will 
try "to see if we con reach these children 
in a way they can't usually com- 
municate," according to Rosen.

tions, such as the History Undergraduate 
Association, the Sigma Tau Delta Honor 
Society, and numerous foreign language 
clubs. The College also supports the 
Undergraduate Writing Center, where 
retired and undergraduate tutors help 
students with their papers. 

The Arts and Humanities academic 
challenge extends to classes in the in- 
dividual majors as well. One of the best 
loved professors in the English depart- 
ment is Dr. Michael Olmert. Senior Tracy 
Bull finds Dr. Olmert's class a pleasant 
challenge. "He makes you work...he 
makes you go out and do it on your own," 
she said. "He helped me pick away at the 
mental boundaries I had created with 
Shakespearean literature," Senior Lisa 
Norman said. Another fan is Katie Komer, 
a senior doing an independent study with 
Dr. Olmert. She values the fact that, "He 
doesn't intimidate you at all. I think he 
teaches because he loves to teach. But 
he does so much other stuff besides just 

Another favorite in the College of Arts 
and Humanities is Professor Paternoster, 
who teaches criminology. Tracy Bull, a 
student in his class on juvenile delinquen- 
cy, described him as, "very wired. He 
reminds you of Howie Mandell. But, he's a 
really good teacher." Not all great 
teachers ore full professors. Many lower- 
level classes are taught by graduate 
students, who bring new enthusiasm to 
the curriculum. 

Special projects, productions, and ser- 
vices...enthusiastic students and faculty... 
challenging, creative endeavors... diversi- 
ty... These are just a few of the elements 
that distinguish University of Maryland's 
College of Arts and Humanities.

he Center for Global Change and the 

Center for International Development 
and Conflict Management encourage 
cooperation between individuals, 
governments and industry to make 
positive changes in the environment and 
peaceful international relations. "The 
Center for Global Change works on 
specific issues such as ozone depletion, 
global climate change, and sea level ris-

Maria Johnson, who works at the Center. 
Probably the most ambitious and im- 
portant program at the College is the

based simulation with other universities 
around the globe, students deal with in- 
ternational problems by assuming the 
roles of foreign policy makers. This ex- 
change of ideas also allows students of

Most business students have a certain 
determination. A passion. A desire to 
achieve what most Americans can only 
dream Lots of it. As one walks 
through Tydings Hall, these students may 
not look like the moguls of Lifestyles of the 
Rich and Famous. But hopefully, someday, 
after much hard work, their sleepless 
nights will pay off. 

As a result of a booming '80s economy 
and a top 25 ranked school, the College 
of Business and Management has con- 
tinuously raised its GPA requirements, 
from 2.8 to a 3.0 and up, frustrating many 
borderline students. However, because of 
the budget crunch and smaller numbers 
admitted to the University, the GPA re- 
quirement plunged to a 2.7 in order to ad- 
mit enough students to fulfill accredita- 
tion requirements. 

The College of Business Management 
offers numerous degrees including ac- 
counting, finance, general business and 
management, management science- 
statistics, marketing, production, and per- 
sonnel and labor relations. 

One of the most popular classes within 
the college has been Dr. Nickels' BMGT 

350, Marketing Principles and Organize 
tion. Students often attended this cla 
not just to learn the "four p's," but to hec 
Dr. Nickels' zany remarks about life or 
accounting majors. Nickels als 
dedicated large amounts of class time 1 
telling students about "being happy." h 
one piece of advice was to "alwo" 
make time to do the things you want 1 
do, and stick to that schedule or plan." 

The College of Business and Manag< 
ment also offers a distinctive internation 
business and foriegn language studie 
(IBEL) major. Students had the option 
learn business skills from an internation 
perspective and combine th 
knowledge with such languages c 
Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Ru 
sian, and Spanish. 

So, with all these opportuniti* 
available in the real world. Business ar 
Management majors can look bock ar 
say good bye to 30 pound business la 
textbooks, living on vending machin( 
between classes, and 8:00 a.m. occou 
ting classes. But, remember to keep thi 
business-like edge, and question wheth, 
"greed is good." 

College of Computer, 

Mathematical and Physical Sciences 

Vji lystallography 

The College of Computer, Moth and 
Physical Sciences has often been refer- 
red to as a technical institute within a 
large university. Students nnajoring in any 
of the fields such as computer science, 
geology, mathematics, astronomy, 
physics, or physical sciences all hove ex- 
cellent opportunities to get an outstan- 
ding education. 

The College of Computer, Moth and 
Physical Sciences is committed to open- 
ing its doors to everyone, regardless of 
their background. In addition the previous 
scarcity of women in the program is now 
being rectified with the availability of 
many career opportunities and scholar- 
ships for women and minorities in the 
fields represented by the College. 

For majors, many departments offer 
paid or unpaid research opportunitites. 
For example, honor students are en- 
couraged to undertake research under 
the guidance of a faculty member. Other 
students are paid student helpers or are 
involved in other forms of research 

Many of the faculty are also engaged 
in leading edge research as well. One of 
the most recent and exciting faculty 
achievements is that of Professor William 
Pugh, who won the prestigious David and 
Lucille Packard Fellowship for Science 
and Engineering. In 1991 Pugh, who also 
became the eighth faculty member from 
the computer science department to 
receive a Notional Science Foundation 
Presidential Young Investigator Award, 
was one of 97 nationwide applicants for 
the Packard Fellowship. 

For the Computer Science Depart- 
ment, such a strong faculty exists. Senior, 
computer science major. Kirk Dunsavage 
said, "One of the most outstanding things 
about the departnri^;nt is that professors 
will sit and talk with you when you need 
help. They are very good at what they do 
in their fields."

The College of Education is out to 
moke o better future for tomorrow's 
students. With seven departments, three 
of which offer undergraduate degrees, 
the teachers of the future show definite 

The undergraduate programs are the 
Department of Curriculum and Instruc- 
tion; the Department of Industrial, 
Technological, and Occupational Educa- 
tion; and the Department of Special 

Admission Is extremely selective. Ap- 
plicants must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher, 
perform well on the Level 20 California 
Achievement Test, and must complete 
basic courses. For this reason, those who 
hove been admitted to these majors are 
usually sophomores or juniors, ready to 
become teachers of tomorrow. 

Sophomore Artemis Kapsllls said she 
was looking forward to enrolling in the 
Department of Curriculum and Instruc- 
tion. She plans to concentrate In Elemen- 
tary Education, especially after EDCI 280, 
where she was able to go to a local 
elementary school to work with children 
six hours a week. 

Student teaching is what almost every 
major of Secondary, Elementary, and Ear- 

ly Childhood Education looks forward to. 
After completing the required courses, in- 
cluding a human development class 
where they observe children, seniors 
spend their last semster as a student 
teacher. Most students agree that going 
out into the field Is where they have the 
opportunity to learn the most and to 
prepare for their careers. 

Assistant Dean Jeanette Kreiser said, 
"We try to work with the schools as much 
as possible." If students have not reached 
their senior year, but still want to par- 
ticipate In other schools, they can 
volunteer in the "Adopt a School" pro- 
gram. They can spend time tutoring or In- 
teracting with children in other ways, not 
only to gain experience, but to grow as 

Junior, Early Childhood Education major 
Lara O'Brien said, "Maryland is really good 
with giving us a lot of practical ex- 
perience, so we can put into practice 
what we learn in the classroom." 

Another concentration within the Col- 
lege Is Special Education. Here, students 
become prepared to teach those with 
disabilities through a five year program, 
where they may obtain both a bachelor's 
and a master's degree.

The College of Education does not just 
provide for it's students academically. 
Their staff's devotion to the field and the 
College's numerous organizations pro- 
vide Education majors with the support 
and stimualtion they need to succeed. 
Many students ore active in the Society 
for Teacher Issues and Minority Education 
(TIME) and the Undergraduate Teachers 
Education Association (UTEA) has 
become even more popular. 

The College of Education also has an 
honor society. Kappa Delta Pi as well as 
an honors program, separate from the 
University. Students must apply to both 
the Honors Program and Kappa Delta Pi. 

The purpose of the Honors Program is to 
offer the opportunity to expand students' 
teacher preparation by going beyond 
the regular requirements with group 
studies, seminars, and individual studies 
including honors theses and projects. 

The dedication of the staff members in 
the College of Education also helps 
make it successful. Senior Krissi Knowles 
said, "You can tell that a lot of the pro- 
fessors really care about their students 
and about future teachers." This support 
motivates Education majors to excel and 

The College of Education works hard to 
train teachers to be supportive and skill-

College of Engineering Attracts the Best 

•"-■■ O. .^^ 

Many students come to thie University 
of Maryland for its superior national 
reputation in the engineering sciences. 
W i t hi approximately 3,000 
undergraduate students, thie College of 
Engineering is one of Maryland's largest 
and most renowned departments. 

The Aerospace Engineering program, 
ranked seventh in the nation, is con- 
sidered by many students to be a 
demanding program, "Engineering is the 
most challenging major, but if you can 
stand up to the challenge, then it's also 
the most rewarding major," explains 
Senior Electrical Engineering major Don 

Engineering facilities at Maryland are a 
center for leading-edge research and for 
undergraduate involvement. The Systems 
Research Center (SRC), in the A.V. 
Williams Building, offers advanced 
research opportunities to participating 
engineering students. The Glen L. Martin 
Wind Tunnel is used by aerospace 
engineers to research and test their 
designs. When the new Space Systems 
Laboratory opens in the summer of 1992, 
it will house a neutral buoyancy tank, 
capable of simulating weightlessness in 


The College's excellent teaching 
reputation was recognized again this 
year. Marilyn Berman, associate dean of 
the College of Engirieering, was awarded 
the title of "1991 Outstanding Woman of 
the Year" by the President's Commission 
on Women's Affairs in a ceremony 
September 24th, in Marie Mount Hall. Ber- 
man was presented the award for her in- 
volvement in reforms to increase female 
and minortiy enrollment in engineering. 

There are several alternative programs 
and special opportunities for engineering 
majors. Junior engineering students have 
the opportunity to enter the College's 
Cooperative Program. They alternate 
study and internships, thereby stretching 
their remaining course work to three 
years. Students may also choose a dual 
degree program with the Department of 
German and Slavic Languages that in- 
cludes a two month language study and 
a four to six month internship in the Ger- 
man industry. A similar program exists for 
students to study Japanese during their 
summers to facilitate future research with

Physical Education, Recreation and 
Health, offers programs of study including 
Health Education, Recreation, and 
Physical Education. 

There are four separate buildings that 
provide classroom and lab space for the 
college. They include North Gym, Cole 
Field House, Reckord Armory, and 
'^■^inkert Field House. 

The College also offers several pro- 
grams to students that combine 
research, service, and instruction in addi- 
tion to depending heavily on student sup- 
port and interaction. Such programs in- 
clude the children's Health and 
Developmental Program and the Sports 
Medicine and Physical Fitness Center. 

One of the most popular course on 
campus is held within this college: Health 
377 - Human Sexuality. Taught by Dr. Robin 
Sawyer, the course takes a straight for- 

ward look at all aspects concerning 
human sexuality. 

Dr. Sawyer's laid back, easy going man- 
ner was a hit with almost all of his 
students. "He is really down to earth and 
funny. You can discuss anything in his 
class and he makes it easier to discuss 
uncomfortable topics," said Kotrina 
Walker, a finance major. 

Sawyers unorthodox presentations and 
demonstrations were also enjoyed by his 
students. "One day we watched a film on 
date rape and then had a debate. It was 
the guys against the girls and we 
debated dating expectations. I was a 
good way for us to find out what the op- 
posite sex thought about the subject. It 
really opened some eyes," stated Krissy 
Edell, on undecided major. 

So, if you ever find yourself on the north 
side of campus with some spare time, 
find out what the College of Health and 
Human Performance is all about. 

College of Human Ecology 

Apparel Bedding Consunner 

The College of Human Ecology is not 
your basic business or engineering school. 
Instead, students learn about the prac- 
tical and human side of life. A side of life 
that many people take for granted. 

For example, the College offers majors 
in community nutrition, dietetics, nutrition, 
or institution administration (food ser- 
vices), experimental foods, family 
sciences, apparel design, textile 
marketing, fashion merchandsing, textile 
science, or consumer economics. 

Ecology means to study the science of 
the relationships between organisms and 
their environments. The College of 
Human Ecology achieves this goal by 
devoting classes to describing, explain- 
ing, and improving the quality of life and 
by encouraging students to become in- 
volved in research, education, communi- 
ty outreach, and public service. 

The curriculum emphasizes the family 
and the community . Students in the Col- 
lege of Human Ecology often become in- 
volved in counseling, program manage- 
ment, research, advocacy, or service 

For many the College offers the oppor-, 
tunity to turn a personal hobby into o 
viable major or career. 

Upon graduation, students of the 
department often find jobs working for 
human service agencies, consulting firms, 
or the Federal, State, and local govern- 
ments. Local area jobs include the 
Federal Drug Administration, Planned 
Parenthood, or senior citizens programs. 

Unfortunately, due to extreme budget 
cuts, the College of Human Ecology is 
slated to be completely cut from the 
University repertoire. Hopefully, such 
dramatic measures will not be necessary.

The University of Maryland at College

grant in 1862. Ever since, agricultural study 
and research has played on integral role 
in the educational mission of the

Now, the goal of the program is to pro- 
vide a comprehensive educational base 
necessary to effectively understand and 
confront a world threatened by 
ecological deterioration and an inade- 
quate food supply. 

There are 12 major fields of study within 
the college, including animal science and 

Agriculture and resource economics, 
also known as agribusiness, is the 
number-one major among agriculture 
students, according to Dr. George Bean, 
assistant dean for both colleges. Students 
combine studies in business manage- 
ment and agricultural science to prepare 
for agricultural careers and other oppor- 
tunities. Bean commented, students 
graduate from the program better 
oreoared for agricultural business careers 

than most business school graduates. 
The scientific education prepares ther 
for real-world problems of scarcity on

Both colleges stress the importance c

Budget Cuts 1 M ompt 

Thousands of angry students, staff and faculty members 
donned sandwich boards instead of Halloween costumes on 
October 31st to protest the $40 million in state-mandated 
university budget cuts. 

About 1500 people, many of whom had lost their jobs or 
their major due to budget cuts, gathered in front of the Stu- 
dent Union at lunchtime before proceeding to Main Ad- 
ministration and down the Route. 

As frustration intensified, students grew more vocal. The 
momentum of the protest swept the University into the media 
spotlight. On November 11 the anthropology department 
sponsored a rally that drew a crowd of about 3,000 and 
blocked traffic on Route One. Ralliers included members of the 
English department, who organized their own protest in front 
of the South Campus Surge Building earlier that morning. 

The Annapolis state house lawn was covered on November 
14th by about 600 outraged students, faculty and staff at- 
tempting to drive their message home to Governor William 
Donald Schaefer. The Maryland General Assembly was not in 
session; however, and campus turnout was less than had been

think it's a shiame that this university is being 
dismantled by the same people who were 
promising to build a bigger and better Universi- 
ty of Maryland. This school had such promise, 
but unless the state government and the tax- 
payers realize its importance and contribute 
accordingly to its survival, this valuable 
resource will disappear." 

-Howard Stregack 






"Of course I don't like the budget cuts. I can't 
afford to poy more tuition and I certainly can't 
afford to pay tuition an extra year, because I 
can't get thie classes I need to get. My biggest 
argument is that they're raising tuition, lower- 
ing the value of my education and making it 
difficult to afford all the things I'd like, or even 
need. I just have to wonder if, when we're out 
of the budget crunch, will they lower the tuition 
and give us back the classes we want."

An air of fear and dread opened up the 
new year, as everyone awaited the 
January 15th deadline that President Bush 
gave the Iraqis before attacking. When 
the Iraqis did not pull out of Kuwait, war 
was evident. 

People were constantly glued to their 
televisions and radios awaiting the next 
plan of action. 

As of January 16th, the United States 
began its first air raid attack, bombing 
Iraq. The U.S. SCUD missiles, for more ad- 
vanced than the Iraqi Patriot missiles, 
gave the United States a clear advan- 
tage. The SCUDs also helped protect 
Israel from attacks.

Operation Desert Storm 

US Goes to War in the Persian Gidf 

January 16, 1991. It was one of those 
days that people will rennember the rest 
of their lives. Ask anyone what they were 
doing when they heard about the U.S. Air 
attack on Iraq. They can probably tell 
you, in vivid detail. Just like when Kennedy 
was assassinated, when Armstrong walk- 
ed on the moon, or when the Shuttle 
Challenger exploded. 

In August of 1990, Iraqi troops invaded 
Kuwait. In response to this, the U.S. 
deployed the largest concentration of 
military power since WWII. Then it was a 
standstill. Until 4:50 p.m. Eastern Standard 
Time, Wednesday, January 16, 1991. 

That is when the first fighter planes took 
off from Dhahran, Saudi Arabia. Over the 
next four days the coalition flew more 
that 4,000 missions; targeting airfields, 
missile launchers, and command-and- 
control centers. 

The fighting continued into a secona 
week. The death toll went up to five 
deaths and 160 injuries. Iraqis also set fire 
to Kuwaiti oil wells and pumped crude oil 
into the Persian Gulf in acts of en- 
vironmental terrorism. 

At the beginning of the second month, 
Saddam Hussein and Iraq announced its 
intentions of withdrawing from Kuwait 
but only under certain, unacceptable 
conditions. President Bush flat out de- 

nounced those conditions and intense 
bombing continued. In Kuwait, Iraq lost 
1,300 tanks and llOO artillery pieces. 

In the last week of February, the ground 
attack began in earnest. Allied forces 
pushed toward Kuwait City leaving 
thousands of surrendered Iraqi troops in 
their wake. U.S. Marines halted just outside 
Kuwait City to allow Pan-Arab forces to 
formally reclaim the Capital. By the end ' 
of the month, Iraqi troops surrendered 
and the liberation of Kuwait was 

Over the next few weeks, the U.N. drew 
up a withdrawal agreement outlining all 
the conditions that Saddam Hussein and 
Iraq were to adhere to. 

Later, withdrawal of the U.S. troops 
began. Troops returned to the U.S. to 
heros' welcomes. Parades, parties and 
celebrations took place all across 
America. A sense of pride spread across 
the nation as soldiers were welcomed 

What had begun nearly eighth months 
before for some, had finally come to an 
end. A war that could have been blown 
into full scale was laid to rest. A war that 
smarted many open wounds of the Mid- 
dle East nations, was finally settled, at 
least for now.

in power."

"I had a friend in the 82nd

over.. .but once the troops 
were over, it was necessary to 
support them."

Men's Basketball Beats the Odds 

The buzzer sounded, ending the first 
half of ploy between the University of 
Maryland and South Florida. The Terps 
went to the locker roonn down by 17 
points, 49-32. The second half marked 
the biggest comeback in Terp history. 
With 4:47 left to play, two Matt Roe free 
throws put the Terps in the lead, winning 
87-81 The unexpected comeback 
against South Florida is one of many sur- 
prises the Terps had this season. Lost year, 
head coach Gary Williams led the Terps 
to the second-best one-year turnaround 
in the nation. During the 1990-1W1 season, 
the Terps continued the turnaround. With 
six new Terps on the squad, and an in- 
jured starter. Junior All-American Walt 
Williams, the Terps still were able to finish 
with on impressive record of 16-12 overall, 
and 5-9 in the ACC. Many players had a 
good season as well. Cedric Lewis, Matt 
Roe, Walt Williams (until his injury), Kevin 
McLinton, and Garfield Smith all had 
suspiciously good stats this season. Matt 
Downing, Evers Burns, and Vince Brood- 
nax also played impressively this season. 
At the start of the season, one of the 
main concerns of Coach Williams was 
the Terps' lack of size. Without a tall man 
on the boards. Coach Williams feared 
that the Terps would be continually out- 
rebounded. Surprisingly, the Terps were 
able to hold their own on the boards. Led

by Cedric Lewis, the Terps were able to 
out-rebound most of their opponents this 
year. Against West Virginia, the Terps pull- 
ed down a season high of 56 boards. 

The Terps also did well from the field this 
season. For most of the season the Terps 
shot better than 50 percent for field 
goals. Rookie Garfield Smith led the team 
in field goals with a percentage of 400 
for the season. Garfield Smith's perfor- 
mance this season earned him the ACC 
Rookie of the Week for the week of 
January 21. Senior Matt Roe also shot well 
from the field. Roe led the Terps in total 
points, scoring 497 for the season. 

With a devastating injury to guard Walt 
Williams, Coach Gory Williams was forced 
to put a totally different starting five from 
one year ago out on the floor. In fact, only 
four players from the last season, Cedric 
Lewis, Vince Broodnax, Evers Burns, and 
Kevin McLinton, were eligible to play. 
Cedric Lewis led the Terps in rebounding, 
both offensively and defensively, and in 
blocked shots. Kevin McLinton led the 
team in assists. Vince Broodnax and Evers 
Burns both played very well. 

Overall, the entire squad played with a 
mark of distinction, finishing much better 
than what was predicted before the 
season. For the second season in a row. 
Coach Gary Williams led the Terps Men's 
Basketball Team to on impressive season.

With only seven seconds left on the 
clock. Junior Power Forward Garfield 
Smith clinched a Maryland victory with 
two free throws. Garfield Smith won two 
games for Maryland by scoring in the lost 
seconds. He scored two free throws at 
the end of the gome against N.C. State, 
and was four-for-four in the last seven- 
teen seconds of the American U. game. 
Smith, over the course of the season did 
much more than pull two games out of 
the fire for the Terps. He was an integral 
part of the Terp's offense and defense, 
playing in every game this post season, 
starting 26 times. 

Smith was born December 18, 1969, in 
Jamaica. He moved to New York in 1978 
where he graduated from Evonder Childs 
High School. But he did not play for his 
high school team. Smith played for the 
nationally recognized Riverside Church 
AAU Team. As a high school junior, he led 
Our Savior Lutheran's high school basket- 
ball team to the New York State 

After high school. Smith spent two years 
at Coffeyville Community College, in Cof- 
feyville, Kansas. In his two years at Cof- 
feyville, Smith became the school's third 
all-time leading scorer. 

In hid first year at the University of 
Maryland, Smith averaged 10.6 points a 
game, fourth best on the team. He was 
third best on the squad averaging 5.4 re- 
bounds a game. Smith was also second 
overall shooting from the field, at 52.7 per- 
cent. Smith shot 67.6 percent from the 
free throw line, but was lO out of lO for 
free throw in the last three miunutes of 
games during the lost half of the season. 
Garfield Smith can only do better in 
future seasons.

She paced the courtside area in front

players on the court. At every game this 
past season. Head Coach Chris Weller 
could be found supporting her team. Her 
leadership and sixteen years of Terp 
coaching experience brought the 
Woman's Basketball Team to the NCAA 

The Woman's Basketball Team was 
picked to finish fourth in the ACC by a 
pre-season vote by ACC coaches. Under 
the expert guidance of Coach Weller, 
the Terps finished second with a con- 
ference record of 9-5. In the ACC Tourna- 
ment, the Terps defeated Georgia Tech, 
91-73, in the first round, but were stopped 
by N.C. State in the semi finals. The Terps 
performance also got the team a NCAA 

Chris Weller is no stranger to the NCAA 
Tournament. This past year marked her 
twelfth appearance in the tourney. She 
led the Terps to three final four ap- 
pearances as well. Along with the tradi- 
tional post season play, Weller led the 
Terps to what would be her hundredth 
conference win. Only two other ACC 
coaches have achieved this milestone. 

In the NCAA Tournament, the Terps 
were defeated in the first round by Holy 
Cross. However, this defeat will not mark 
an end to Maryland's dominance on the 
court. Throughout the 1990-1991 season, 
Weller had twelve difference starting 
lineups. Out of the different starting com- 
binations Weller put on the court, 94.5 
percent of the scoring was by non- 
seniors. This con only mean Coach Weller 
will be making future trips to the NCAA 
Tournament, thus placing Weller in the 
spotlight among some of the all-time best

Distinction is a word used to describe 
an outstonding set of qualities specifically 
applied to one area. At the University of 
Maryland, distinction in women's basket- 
ball comes from a variety of special 
women, from all across the globe. The 
team members ore not only Marylanders, 
but from as for away as Florida, Connec- 
ticut, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Israel and 

Our Israeli distinction comes from 
Alumo Goren. At 5'10", she is the tallest of 
the Terp guard pock. Her international ex- 
perience is what motivated Maryland's 
coaching staff to work to get her to the 
United States. 

Freshmen Center Monica Adams, from 
Oklahoma City, has the ability to be a 
driving force for the Terps, In high school 
she was an All-State selection. Even 
though her first season with the Terps, 
roster wise, seemed less than her high 
schol career, her freshness and drive built 
into a valuable weapon for the Terrapin 

The Stat list is filled with one freshman's 
name, Rimkus. Bonnie Rimkus, from Pitt- 
sburgh, was first team All-State pick. She 
averaged 25 points and 17 rebounds a 
gome. During her first season at Maryland 
she maintained her reputation. Rimkus 
shot eight from the field against top rank- 
ed Virginia matching a school record. She 
now averages 1T3 points and 5.5 re- 
bounds. In January she was named ACC 
Rookie of the Week - definitely a distinct 
woman in Terrapin basketball. 

With only three seniors and three juniors 
returning, almost all of Maryland's team is 
what one would call "still green". But their 
potential is overwhelming. Fans are an- 
ticipating future winning seasons! 

Mary Barnes, Carlo Holmes and Wendy 
Martin share the responsibility for the 
1990-1991 team. Barnes was used sparing- 
ly in 1990 but sow two career highs 
against the Duke Blue Devils and minutes 
of time against Appalachian State in 
Maryland's first round of the NCAA. The 
Terrapins benefit the most from Mary's 
depth and accurate shooting. 

Carlo Holmes also a tri-coptain, reach- 
ed the lOOO point plateau in 1990. She is 
only the fifth player in Maryland's history 
to reach this point. Carlo's excellent 
reputation started her freshman year 
when she played all 32 games of that 
season. Now, her senior year, she has 
totaled 93 games in her career. 

Sue Panek returned to the lineup this 
season as her sophomore season was 
ended by a knee injury. Since the 
previous February, Panek has had to sit 
out of the gome. Her freshman 32 game 
season is very impressive and her team- 
mates hove a strong future anchor with 

Estelle Christy, from Bridgeport, Con- 
necticut, totaled 192 points this season. 
Estelle is a hard worker in both practice 
and on the court. She is on instinctive 
player; ECAC Rookie of the Week with 12 
points, four rebounds, and three steals in 
15 minutes of play for the week. Christy is 
a good passer who sees the whole court 
very well. Her excellent sights will also set 
her for potential leadership. 

Jesse Hicks, o center from Richmond 
Virginia, is noted for her academic and 
athletic ability. A four year academic 
achiever in high school, Jesse averaged 
lO.l point per game her freshman season 
at Maryland. She has now moved the 
score up to 13.8. Jesse Hicks may soon 

become the leading Terrapin scorer. 
Jesse was struck with misfortune in prac- 
tice when she broke her third metatarsal

-Last, but not least, is the distinctive 
woman behind the lady Terps - Chris 
Weller, As a Maryland graduate, she has 
15 seasons already behind her. She has 
led the Terps to the final four on three oc- 
casions, and to the ACC Championship, 
a record eight times. Weller's slate of 
achievements show her ability to not only 
to get the job done, but to excel. She 
gives her women the chances, ex- 
periences and support they need to 
reach the top. The Terps ranked as high 
as 12th last season and ore looking to 
continue that string. 

Chris Weller is one of the top coaches 
in women's basketball. In the first year, 
1975-1976, the Terps, led by Weller were 
20-4. In 1981-1982, they were 25-7, went to 
the ACC Championship, the NCAA Tour- 
nament, and the Final Four, ranking third 
overall. Though most of Weller's limelight 
is seen as statistics, her coaching ability 
and efforts cannot be deemed any less 
than most important. 

In takes a strong woman to lead a 
talented group. But, this group of Ter- 
rapins is led by one of the best. Few col-

On November lO, 1990, the University of Maryland Men's Wrestling Team began 
their season unaware of the achievements their hard w/ork would reap. They 
dominated and won l<ey matches, four of their teammates were recognized by the 
ACC, and the team ended their season with an overall record of 11-8. 

Their record higlights prominent victories against such opponents as American 
(28-9), James Madison (46-6), Coppin State (47-0), and Howard (56-0). 

These victories were sparked by the team's four leading players. Tom Miller, with a 
27-3-1 record, captured the ACC Championship title in the 142 pound category. Matt 
Caro became the runner-up in the 158 pound category with a record of 23-11-1. Mike 
Core (29-9-1) was the runner-up in the 177 pound category. Finally, Kevin Brown swept 
up the ACC Champion title in the 190 pound category. 

The 1991-1992 wrestling team is looking to come back even stronger than last 
season. With a schedule just as difficult, the Terps wrestlers are up to the challenge. 
Key matches include Penn State, Coppin State, American, and NC State.

The University of Maryland's Women's Tennis Team faced a rough season lasf year 
as they only won three out of 18 matches, going 0-6 in the ACC and 3-15 overall. 

The Lady Terps did win impressive matches against Howard University (9-0), 
American University (5-1), and George Washington University (6-2), They had close 
match scores against Rutgers, losing by only one match (4-5) and Georgetown also 
with a match record of (4-5). 

Perhaps one of the most surprising match results came against ACC rival North 
Carolina State, when the Lady Terps caused the Wolfpackers to sweat a little, but lost 
by only one match, The final match record of four wins to NC State's five wins. 

Outstanding Lady Terp included Alycio Katrinak, Michelle Daigle and Boukje

The University of Maryland's Men's Tennis Team fared only 
slightly better than the women's team this past year, finishing 
the season with only seven wins out of 20 matches. The team 
went 0-6 in the ACC and 7-13 overall. 

There were some highlights however as the men had con- 
vincing match wins over Miami, Ohio (6-3), Richmond (6-2), 
Penn State (8-1) and a shutout against American University 

The Terps also managed to squeak by Washington College 
and in-state rival Navy, both with match scores of 5-4. 

Some of the Terps outstanding players included the number 
one seed Marco Turro and Greg O'conner.

A grey cloud hung over Shipley Field, 
home of the Terrapin baseball team. Ken 
Noe stepped up to the plate. He looked 
oft to the outfield, and prepared to hit the 
ball. The pitcher sent the ball to home 
plate, where it met with the swinging bat 
of Noe. Soaring away into the outfield, 
the bai left the strike zone, giving Noe a 
base hit. 

Throughout the Terps' 1991 season, one 
person. Ken Noe, consistently played 
superb baseball. Junior Ken Noe, playing 
every game but one, led the team with a 
.381 batting average. He had a total of 82 
hits, 28 doubles, 3 triples, and 3 home runs. 
Also, Noe was able to score 46 runs, bat- 
ted in 44 runs, and stole 9 bases. By the 
end of the season, Noe was still among 
the front runners for the ACC Batting Title. 
Noe finished third in the ACC for batting.

The Wind Up 

With the arrival of each spring comes the cracking of a swinging bat meeting a ball, players running 
bases, and lone fielders catching Mr. Spalding. The season when plants and animals come out of hiber- 
nation, also brings the Terrapin out to Shipley Field for baseball season. 

Head Coach Tom Bradley was in his firts year as head of the Terp squad. Coach Bradley is a University 
of Maryland Alumni and well as on Alumni of Terrapin baseball. In the 1970's, Bradley played for the 
Chicago White Sox, winning 15 gomes for the Sox. 

For Terrapin fans, winning is important. Coach Bradley had a tremendous task ahead of him in 1991. The 
Terps season schedule showed many tough opponents. With two nationally ranked teams to compete 
against inside the ACC, Georgia Tech and Clemson, the Terps came up short in runs. Outside the ACC, 
the Terps were very competitive. From the start of the season, it was apparent that fundamentals were 
going to be stressed. Perseverance paid off, and the Terps finished the season 13-2, before the ACC 

Throughout the season there were key players that continually played well. Ken Noe led the team in 
batting with a .381 average. John Rayne and Tim G'Neil were the two anchors of the pitching rotation 
while Charles Devereaux was an ace reliever. With one year under his belt. Coach Tom Bradley is ready 
for 1992.

May 18, 1991--The Maryland Women's Lacrosse Team met the University of New Hampshire in the Na- 
tional Semifinals It was the culmination of two extremely successful months of lacrosse. Victories were a 
common occuronce as the Terps faced defeat only three times. After a nail-biting 4-3 overtime victory, 
it was off to vie for the National Championship Title. 

The 1991 Women's Lacrosse Team made it all the way to the National Championship game, but come 
up short. 8-6, against rival Virginia. However, the team enjoyed a very successful season going 14 and 3 
overall with many players posting personal bests. 

Big wins were the story a number of occasions as the Terps downed the University of Pennsylvania 17-1 
on April 28, West Chester fell 18-3, and Northwester was left in a cloud of dust, 18-6 on April 5, 1991. 

Key players on the Terp 1991 squad included goalie Mondy Stevenson (86 goals allowed with 133 saves 
for a ,607 pet.). Michele Uhlfelder played 16 games, making 39 goals. Leonn Shuck played 17 games, 
making 43 goals; and Betsy Elder also played 17 gomes, making 25 goals. 

The challenges do not get any easier and the schedule will not lighten up as the ladies prepare for 
another successful season.

Senior goalie Steve Kavovit, an RTVF 
major, lool<s ahead to thie 1992 lacrosse 
season and his future with great anticipa- 
tion. His plans for after graduation are 
uncertain, but graduate school is a viable 
option. He hopes to become a large 
scale television or movie producer. 

Kavovit spent one year at Herkimer 
Community College in New York, then 
transferred to Maryland in 1989. After 
three years of NCAA Lacrosse, Steve 
became one of the leading men on the 
Terrapin team. 

Reflecting on his lacrosse experiences 
at Maryland, Kavovit said, "They have a 
great program here, from a team 
perspective." Hov\/ever, "From a University 
perspective, the lacrosse program in 
general is not recognized as much as it 
should be. We lose out because of the 
money pulled in by basketball and foot- 
ball, but vje've been the team that's 
been v^inning the last few years." 

Kavovit saw action in all fifteen games 
last year as the Terp's starting goalie. His 
224 saves and 143 opponent goals gave 
him a .610 overage, while other goalies 
hod only 20 saves and 13 opponent goals 
combined. Kovovit's excellent showing 
earned him the accomplishment of 29 
saves - the most saves in a game of any 
Terp goalie throughout the entire 1991 

Ten years of lacrosse has landed Steve 
Kavovit OS the premier goalie of the 
1991-1992 Maryland Men's Lacrosse Team. 
If he hod to do it over again, he said he 
would, "take high school seriously so that I 
could have come right to a four-year 
school." Yet, Steve Kavovit has made 
three years of Maryland Terrapin 
Lacrosse count - in a most distinctive

Men's Lacrosse Goes to Final Four 

Over the past few years, the University of Maryland IVlen's Lacrosse Program has 
been one of the finest of all the inter-collegiate athletic teams. The 1991 Men's 
Lacrosse Team was no exception as they sailed their way to the NCAA semi-finals. 

Unfortunately, the excitement and anticipation of the trip to Syracuse University 
resulted in a loss to rival Towson State. 15-11. However, the team enjoyed a successful 
season going 10-5 overall, including a 5-2 record on Terrapin turf. 

The Terps faired well in both the first round and quarter finals of the NCAA Tourna- 
ment, swiftly defeating Rutgers and Brown, 13-7 and 16-3, respectively. 

Key players of the 1991 Terp squad included goalie Steve Kavovit capturing 224 
saves and 143 opponent goals. Mark Douglas snagged 147 shots, 52 goals, and 22 
assists. Rob Wurzburger raked in 96 shots, 44 goals, and lO assists. Chris Dai! accrued 
46 shots, 15 goals, and 13 assists. Finally, Blake Wynot racked up 62 shots, 15 goals, and 
lO assists. 

The 1992 squad is looking sharp as ever. New players, as well as veteran seniors, are 
lookir^g forward to more success. As the Terps anticipate the coming season, the 
schedule does not get easier. Key motch-ups include Towson State, C.W. Post, North 
Carolina, Virginia, and Johns Hopkins.

Many team members contributed to a

ed to an impressive 13 win and 8 loss 
record. Under the leadership of Coach 
Bob Nelligan, the Terp performance in the 
March ECAC Championships the team 
placed fifth overall with a score of 183.90 
points. This marked the ninth time during 
the season that the Terps scored over 183 


Out of the great performers on the 
team, Kristen Pagans leaps ahead. Kristen 
finished fourth at the ECAC in the all 
around competition. She was also named 
the ECAC Rookie-of-the-year by the 
ECAC coaches. During the season, 
Kristen consistently scored above 9.40 in

season did she score below 9.00 on the

Terps Dive In 

The Maryland swimmers entered their 1991 season striving for success and looking to repeat some of 
their past accomplishments in the 1990 season. Overall, the men finished v/ith a record of 9-5 and the 
women finished at 6-8-1. Coach Steve Mahaney. in his fourth coaching season, looks to challenge and 
motivate the swimmers to reach beyond last year's achievements. 

One the men's side, February 2, 1990, brought a stunning upset over defending ACC Champion 
University of Virginia, 142-101 -- Maryland's first victory over the Cavaliers since 1986. Standouts during this 
meet included Scot Modiil and diver Mike Noonan. In addition, victories were enjoyed against American, 
Johns Hopkins, VillarvDva, and LaSalle. 

For the men, ACC stars included: senior Kurt Kendall, top ranked in times for the 50, lOO, 200 meter, 
and the 500 free style; Trent McNichol (lOO free and individual medley); Jeff Griesbauer (lOO fly); and 
Vince Carmosino (lOO breast, 200 breast, and lOO free). Five relay times also found their way into the 
top three ACC rankings for the men. 

The women also had a strong showing at many meets throughout the 1990 season. Although unable 
to overcome lOth ranked Virginia, victories were claimed over rivals Johns Hopkins, George Washington, 
and the Naval Academy. Lady Terp standouts included; Amey Bosseler (top ACC times in lOO back, 
200 back); Dori Miller (lOO breast, 200 breast); and outstanding performances by All-Americon diver 
April Tassi. Two of the women's relay times also ranked with the ACC's top times. 

As the Terps begin the 1991, tough challenges await. Meets against ACC rivals ore the main focus, 
while other opponents include Navy, University of Buffalo, and American. In addition, Dori Miller and 
Vince Carmosino will strive to repeat their ranking in the NCAA top twenty. 



On September 8, 1991, the men's soccer 
team started its season. But, thiey hod ar- 
rived weeks earlier to begin practicing for 
the season. In these early weeks, 
freshmen and sophomores adjusted and 
looked forward to the season. Unfor- 
tunately, ten weeks later their record 
(5-9-4) did not reflect all of their hard 
work and preparation. 

The record does not show the five over- 
times the team fought through or the 
6-0 shutout against Lafayette. It does 
not tell of the l-O win in overtime over 
the UNC Tarheels or of the 1-1 dead-lock 
against Loyola. 

In those crucial games, the team look- 
ed for its leadership from junior forward 
Jeff Stroud, leading the team in goals 
with four, and they looked to their only 
goalkeeper Carmine Isaoco, who hod 
108 saves this season. 

Carmen Isocco, Marland's own All ACC 
Champion goallie, is a junior with one 
more year to rebuild the soccer program. 
Isocco came here in the fall of 1986 
from Canada. He chose to go to college 
in the United States to expand his hor- 
zons, and discover a new culture. He 
realized that a full scholarship to on 
American university was not an oppor- 
tunity to pass up. He picked Maryland 
because of its location, reputation, and 
good athletic programs. 

In the immediate future, Isocco plans to 
complete his senior year and graduate 
with a degree in philosophy. With his 
degree, he plans to teach at a university 
or play professional soccer in Canada. 

A major 1991 Women's Soccer Team 
highlight was their hard-won victory over 
Duke University (2-1). The victory advanc- 
ed the team to the ACC Tournament 
semifinals against North Carolina. Unfor- 
tunately, the Lady Terps fell short losing to 
the torheels, and completing their season 
with a 7-12 record. 

However, the record does not show the 
individual achievements the team attain- 
ed this season. Their games went into 
overtime five times, including the game 
against Dul<e in the ACC semifinals. 

On the 1991 team, there were three 
leaders, consistently contributing to the 
team. Randi Goldblatt lead the team with 
seven goals, Audra Weber followed with 
six goals, and Stephanie Magro rounded 
the offense with five goals and four 
assists. The defense was manned by 
goalkeeper Cailin Mullins who had 71 
spectacular saves. 

Although the women's team suffered a 
loss in the ACC semifinals, they ended 
their season with a 2-0 victory over rival 

Fullback Michelle Ogden strays from the "norm" of 
the basic four-year player. Michelle played for the 
Lady Terps for four years before taking a leave of 
absence this year to get married. She has also started 
a family, with the birth of her new baby. 

As the 1990 team defensive MVP. Ogden's attitude 
towards Maryland soccer is very positive. Amazingly, 
she did not intend to play college soccer after high 
school. "I had always played the game for fun, but I 
didn't think I was good enough to play college soc- 
cer," said Ogden. 

The University of Arkansas at Litte Rock had offered 
Ogden a partial soccer scholarship. Frostburg State 
University offered her a track and field scholarship. She 
even had the paperwork ready to send in, when her 
friend stepped in. With a little persuasion, her friend 
convinced her to play soccer for the Lady Terps. 

Michelle could not have been more pleased. She 
was able to remain close to home while attending 
school and had the opportunity to participate in a 
wonderful program. "We have nowhere to go but up," 
said Ogden, "But, I really excited about our freshmen 
this year and what they will be able to do in the 

In addition to this, Ogden compliments her coach. 
April, for all her hard work, dedication, and excellent 
knowledge of the game. 

Ogden's academic also hold high importance to 
her. The Kinesiology and pre-Physical Therapy major 
has plans to attend physical therapy school following 
her graduation in 1993.

Krivak Resignation Concludes 
Disappointing Season 

The University of Maryland Football 
teann started the season tioping to better 
last seasons winning record of 6-5 and to 
return once again to a prestigious bowl 

The Terps returned a host of great 
players in hopes of having that great 
season. These players included defensive 
tackle. Lorry Webster, kicker Dan DeAr- 
nnas, center Mitch Suplee, H-Back Frank 
Wycheck, running bock Mark Mason, and 
wide receiver Gene Thomas. 

After starting the season with a 17-6 vic- 
tory over ACC rival. University of Virginia, 
the Terps' bubble burst with a four game 
losing streak, including losses to Syracuse, 
West Virginia, Pittsburgh, and Georgia 

The Terps then racked up a second 
ACC win to go 2-1 in the conference. This 
time the victim was Wake Forest as 
Maryland squeaked by with a score of 

That would be the end of the Terps win- 
ning ways OS they lost their remaining five 
gomes including a heartbreaking loss to 
Duke, 13-17, on Homecoming, and the final 
game of the season to N.C. State, 17-20. 

At the conclusion of a season plagued 
by injuries, quarterback controversies, 
and just plain bod luck, head coach, Joe 
Krivak resigned. 

After on extensive search, the University 
of Maryland named Holy Cross head 
coach, Mark Duffner, as Krivak's replace- 

ment. Duffner brought with him one of 
the winningest records in the nation, as 
well as some of the top specialist 

Although the Terps team didn't amass 
that winning record, some individuals on 
the team managed to put together im- 
pressive seasons. 

Sophomore H-Back, Frank Wycheck 
came off a sensational freshman season 
to continue his impressive stats. Wychek 
averaged 7.3 yards per carry rushing, run- 
ning a total of three times for 22 yards, 
and averaged 9.7 yards per reception. 

Senior plocekickerpunter, Don DeAr- 
mas concluded his career as a Terp by 
leading the whole team in scoring with a 
total of 36 points on the season. 

On the defensive side of the line, junior, 
Mike Jormolowich led the Terps with 153 
tackles throughtout the season including 
one interception. Another junior. Dove 
Morrone, had an excellent season as well. 
Morrone was second to Jormolowich in 
total tackles, amassing 92 on the season. 
In addition to this, Marrone was also an 
Academic All-Americon candidate, with 
o 3.8 g.p.a. 

Although the Terps suffered a disap- 
pointing season, they are looking forward 
to next season, with a new head coach 
and coaching staff, and a host of young 
talent, the Terps hope once again to 
return to their winning ways.

Terps Serve It Up 

Injuries Kill Terps Hopes of Repeat 

The Terrapin Volleyball team began its 
season with high hopes. Hopes of 
repeating as ACC Champions. Hopes of 
returning to the NCAA Tournament and 
advancing past the first round matches. 

Reality struck early in the season as in- 
juries stung the Terps. Key injuries to 
starters gave the Terps reason to doubt 
their chances. Injuries included last years' 
ACC player of the year. Colleen Hurley, 
middle hitter Andrea Cakes, outside hitter 
Vol Vermeulen, and later in the season to 
setteroutside hitter Andrea Mondella. 

With half of the starting line-up 
hampered by injuries, the Terps still 
managed to finish vjlih an overall record 
of 18-11 and 5-2 in the ACC. The Terps also 
finished second to Duke in the ACC final 

The Terps put together their longest 
winning streak of the season beginning 
with the ACC opening weekend games 
against Clemson and Georgia Tech. The 
weekend was highlighted by the battle 
of the Malins sisters. Terp freshman Kelly 
Malins went head to head with her sister 
Wendy, playing for Georgia Tech. The 
Terps swept the weekends' games 
beginning their quest for a repeat title. 

The Terps continued their ACC quest 
with victories over the newest addition to 
the ACC, Florida State and later North 
Carolina State and Virginia. The Terps suf- 
fered a minor setback with a loss to 
Western Michigan at the Western 
Michigan Invitational. 

The Terps biggest test came while fac- 
ing Duke. Both teams were undefeated 
in the ACC and the showdown was said 
to be a preview to the championship 
game at the ACC Tournament. Maryland 
took Duke to five games before bowing 
out losing the match two games to three. 

Maryland went into the ACC Tourna- 
ment knowing they had to win the tour- 
nament to return to the NCAA's. But, they 

came out flat and lost in the first round to 
a Virginia team they had beaten during 
the regular season three gomes to one. 
This loss ended the Terps hopes of 
repeating their ACC title and was very 
costly, OS the Terps lost senior Andrea 
Mondella due to an ankle injury in the se- 
cond game of the match. 

The Terps season wasn't a complete 
loss though. In spite of nagging injuries, 
senior Colleen Hurley was once again 
honored with a selection to the AII-ACC 
first team and sophomore setter Nicole 
Lantagne was selected to the AII-ACC 
second team. 

Setter, Nicole Lantagne finished the 
season with a team high 1,219 assists, 
averaging 11 assists per match and 43 
aces for the season. Nicole also had 391 
digs for the season, averaging 3.5 a 
game. Outside hitter Colleen Hurley finish- 
ed up her strong career as a Terp. Col- 
leen finished with a team high of 398 digs, 
third in the ACC and a team high of 387 
kills, which was seventh best in the ACC. 

Overall, the Terps had a good season. 
But, next year they plan to fight to regain 
the ACC title and return to the NCAA

Andrea Oakes, a junior pre-Elementary 
education major, achieved tremendous 
success in tier thiird season on the Univer- 
sity of Marylands' volleyball team. She has 
very positive feelings about UMs' 
Volleyball Program. "The coaches do a 
good job, and together we (the team) 
have built ourselves into a very strong 
program," commented Oakes. 

Oakes feels the strength of the pro- 
gram is due to the successful recruitment 
over the post few years. "The players that 
have been recruited have helped in 
strengthening the program." 

Oakes finished the season with very 
distinctive statistics. She led the team 
with a .290 hitting percentage, which 
was seventh best in the ACC. She also 
averaged 3.08 kills per game, had 33 
aces during the season, as well as 229 
digs. Oakes was an all-ACC honoree in 
1990 and also earned the most improved 
player team award in 1990. 

In addition to volleyball, Oakes really 
enjoys the University itself. "It offers a 
great education, beautiful environment, 
and a large campus. At first, when you 
get here, everything seems very in- 
timidating, but once you get to know 
people, especially if you are on a team, 
you make a lot of friends and everything 
seems smaller." 

In the future, Oakes will graduate with a 
degree in Elementary Education and 
hopes to obtain a teaching position. "I 
don't really think that I will be playing 
much volleyball oftger graduation. 
Maybe on a club teem or something, but 
I really want to focu. on my career."

Best in the ACC 

Field Hockey Goes to Final Four 

The 1991 University of Maryland field hockey team took collegiate field hockey to 
soaring heights. Their incredible success was 110% team effort, as they overcame 
many obstacles. Their greatest challenge v\/as the absence of their coach, Missy 
Mehorg, as she played this year with the U.S. National Field Hockey Team. 

With these challenges facing them, the team achieved a spectacular 15-4-1 
record, a second place finish in the highly competitive Atlantic Coast Conference. 
Five team members on the All-Acc Tournament Team and a lO gome winning 
streak in which the Terrapins outscored their opponents by on incredible 32-2 

The Lady Terps entered the NCAA Tournament ranked fourth in the nation, and 
they made it all the way to the Final Four. 

Exceptional players such as goalie Irene Horvot, a freshman from Austalio, who 
had eleven shutouts in the regular season, and forward Lisa Rowe, who led the 
ACC in scoring with 23 points and was second in goals with 12. 

Other standouts include: midfielder Sabrina Salom, midfielder Boukje Vermeulen, 
midfielder Elisso Bechman, defender Mondy Stevenson, and forward Amy Schubert. 

While the Terps did accomplish a great deal this season, disaoppointment loom- 
ed large as they were unable to overcome defending National Champion Old 
Dominion in the NCAA semifinal game. 

Distinctive Spirit 

UM Cheerleaders and Testudo Terps' Most Loyal Fans 


That chant has become almost 
synonymous with the University of 
Maryland's biggest crowd of spirited and 
loyal fans - the UM cheerleaders. Anyone 
that has ever been to a football game is 
familiar with this team. 

These ore the fans in red and white 
leading thousands of Terp fans as they 
cheer the Terps to victory. They can fire 
up the crowds with cheers and leave 
spectators speechless with awesome 
acrobatics, amazing pyramids, and 
breathtaking stunts. UM Cheerleaders 
ore irrefutably one of the best squads on 
the East Coast. 

Also jumping on the spirit bandwagon is 
Testudo, UM's faithful mascot. Our belov- 
ed mascot was always spotted at the 
biggest games, and even at the ones 
that were small. I wasn't unusual to see 
Testudo dueling it out with opposing 
mascots or to see him firing up the 
crowds along with cheerleaders. 

What makes Testudo so great, though, 
is his relationship with the fans. Many, 
times Testudo was seen walking through 
the crowds of Terps fans, encouraging 
them to cheer for the Terps or stopping 
to play with a young Terp fan. 

In victory or defeat, both the 
cheerleaders and Testudo maintained a 
loyalty to Terp sports teams and fans 
unequaled by any other, 





People's Drug. The Bagel Place, Terp 
Territory. Alario's and The Yogurt Jungle. 
Not only ore these places located on the 
"Route", but these, as well as many other 
businesses helped fulfill the needs of UM 

Though located in the middle of the 
Washington suburbs. College Park is still 
considered a "college town". The 
business community offers a variety of 
fast food, dine in . take out. and delivery 
restaurants that fit any students budget. 
Favorites include Ratsies. Cluck U 
Chicken, and Pizza Hut. 

College Park may not be quite up to 
the standards of other college towns, but 
it has the bars. If the 'Vous. Santa Fe. 
Bentley's and the Cellar do not fit 
students needs. UM students often treck 
to nearby Georgetown or Baltimore to 
quench their thirst. 

As a college town. College Park may 
fall short, when compared to others, but 
what cannot be found directly in College 
Pork is easily found within less than an 
hour's drive. Malls close by to campus in- 
clude White Flint. Tyson's Corner, and 
Beltway Plaza. 

Even if it is not your typical college 
town. College Park leff distinctive marks 
on the University of Maryland campus as 
well as each UM student.

Service and Quality 
A tradition for over 30 years 

2101 Wisconsin Avenue, NW 
Washington, DC 20007 

A Division of The Donohoe Companies, Inc. 

Jim Morrison probably hod no idea that his 
band's provocative hit would become a favorite 
at The Cellar. But its meaning transcends the 
heavy gazes of late night bar scopers. The 
message is that if one takes the time to knov\/ 
others, people are really not so strange after all. 

The University of Maryland prides itself on its 
diversity. But some students thought on even 
higher level of acceptance and understanding 
could be expected from the campus. 

Jennifer Shapkin, a junior art history major, 
quoted this line sung by Morrison that shows how 
stereotypes and misconceptions can grow out of 

""People are strange when you're a stranger, 
faces look ugly when you're alone; women seem 
wicked when you're unwanted, streets surround 
you when you're down,'" quoted Shapkin. "People 
think this campus is so diverse, but it should be 
more open to self expression. People of this day 
and age who are going to college to get 
educated should not have this mentality," Shapkin 

Love, sadness and joy are eternal 
themes employed by recording artists 
for generations, but piano man Billy 
Joel seems to have captured the 
youthful optimism of the '90s 
American generation In his song, "Only 
the Good Die Young." 

Sophomore education major Artemis 
Kapsilis expressed her feelings about 
the song, quoting a line that encap- 
sulates the feelings of many students 
who enjoyed their precious time here 
at Maryland despite budget v\/orries. 

"He (Billy Joel) says. They say there's 
a heaven for those who W\\\ v^alt, some 
say it's better but I say it ain't; I'd rather 
laugh with the sinners than cry with the 
saints, the sinners are much more fun - 
you know that only the good die 

"I think this line is so relevant to being 
In college. It says, live It up - you're In 
college; now is the time to have fun.' 
Since I'm going to be here for ten years 
(ha,ha) anyway, I might as well live It 

But surrounding the personal growth 
and social discovery that makes the 
Maryland experience unique was the 
difficult reality of attending a state 
university in a time of government fun- 
ding crunches. Kapsilis commented on 
a line from Joel's namesake classic, 
"Piano Man," that addressed the 
frustrations of many students who wor- 
ried about not graduating on time. 

"When he says, '...and I'm sure that I 
could be a moviestar, if I could get out 
of this place,' that relates to Maryland 
because a lot of people honestly feel 
like they're never going to get out of 
here," Kapsilis said. "Five year programs 
are turning into six year programs. It's 
kind of ridiculous. I think they want to 
keep us here longer." 

Ah, romance. You know, the feeling 
in the pit of your stomach when that 
magical pair of sparkling blue eyes 
winks in your direction from across the 
room. When a dozen red roses land on 
your doorstep. When your significant 
other squeezes your hand tight and 
whispers those three special words. 

Ask a million people and you'll get a 
million different definitions of love, if 
love can be defined at all. Many have 
noticed that Bad Company's "Feel Like 
Makin' Love" arouses that un- 
mistakable tingle in their hearts; here's 
what one individual had to say about 
the song. 

"College is a time when you find out 
what really mokes you happy in life, 
when things start to fall into place. 
There's this one line in the song (above) 
that soys, "Baby, if I think about you I 
think about love; darlin' if I lived without 
you, I'd live without love,'" said 
sophomore biology major Dru 
McHenry. "I think that line says a lot 
about love and what it feels like to be 
in love." 

"In his song called, 7he River,' Garth 
Brooks says, "So don't you sit upon the 
shoreline and say you're satisfied; choose 
to chance the rapids and dare to dance 
the tide.' 

"I think he's telling people to take what 
you've learned and apply it.Jo do 
something v\/ith you're life. Don't just think 
about something - go out and do it. 

"In his songs, such as the The Dance,' 
Garth Brooks gets emotional about things 
from his past. It's like he's trying to say that if 
something v^ere to happen to him, he 
v\/ouldn't have had the chance to say what 
he felt to all the people he knew loved him, 
like his wife. So he says what he's feeling 
now - don't sit by the shoreline,"

1992 Terrapin 

Standing, from left: Ben Werner, Kathleen McGuire. Tonya Whitfield, Corliss Hill, Beht Panitz, Kara Schmidt and 
Paul Vieira, Sitting: Tamara Gronet, Krista Parker and Meredith Tcherniovsky. 

The 1992 Terrapin started in February of 
1991 with an entirely new staff and an air 
of uncertainty. Could a novice staff pro- 
duce a 300 plus page yearbook? Was 
there any way possible to cover every 
aspect of University life? 

Armed with determination and con- 
fidence, that is what the Terrapin '92 staff 
set out to do. The theme, "A Mark of 
Distinction,' was chosen by editor-in-chief, 
Krista Parker. 

In this theme, we hoped to highlight all 
of the distinct aspects that make the 
University of Maryland special. 

In doing this, the staff tried not to dwell 
on the setbacks and shortfalls University 
of Maryland suffered, but to focus on the 
unusual and outstanding aspects. 

To capture every single, unique aspect 
of such a large University is virtually im- 
possible. We tried to cover some things 

that seem to have been overlooked in 
past years. Thus we added a Resident Life 
section as well as split the Organizations 
section into two different sections: Greek 
and Organizations. This was done to allow 
for greater coverage of both aspects of 
University life. 

We hope that in our effort to Increase 
coverage, we touched on just about 
everything, and did not blindly omit 

The Terrapin '92 staff would like to say 
congratulations to all of this years' 
graduating seniors. We also wont to say 
thank you, goodbye and good luck to 
the staffs' graduating seniors: Tamara 
Gronet, Beth Panitz and Kathleen 
McGuire. Thanks for everything, and we 
hope that you enjoy this book as much as 
we do.

Editors Pa^e 

As I sat down to write ttiis farewell of sorts, I realized that I am 
following a tradition that I never found any use for in yearbooks. 
Now, I realize that to thank the amount of people I want to thank, 
in person, would take forever. So I decided to stay true to tradi- 
tion and write all the emotional thank yous that many editors 
before me have done. 

First of all, I would like to thank the Maryland Media Inc. Board 
for taking a chance, and giving me the opportunity to do this 
project. It has been a great experience - one that I will never 

I would also like to thank Michael Fribush for all the answers and 
odvice and most of all, his patience. Thanks to Nancy French for 
the support and endless stream of supplies, to Polly Monke for 
making the ads look great, and to Robin Baulch for helping me 
get used to all the paste-up and typesetting equipment. 

Tanya O., you ore a true friend. How can I ever thank you for all 
of the support and encouragement that you gave me when I 
was ready to quit. I will never forget the 'special' flower, all the 
Diet Cokes, support and help you have given me over this year. I 
appreciate it more than you know. 

Tomaro, you are the typesetting queen! I hope that you know 
how much I really appreciate all of the time you spent on this 
book. Thanks for listening to all of my problems with decisions and 
with people. I only wish I could have gotten to know you sooner. I 
need a true shopping buddy, and you are the best at that, too. I 
hope that this book means as much to you as it does to me. You 
will be missed next year, probably more than you know. "Don't 

Meredith, thanks for stepping in whenever we needed you. You 
are the staff's Renaissance Woman. Words cannot describe how 
thankful I am for all your help and advice. How many jobs did you 
really do, 25? I hope that you stick around. You are the best. 

Tonya Lothem, thanks for putting up with Ben. Just kidding! I 
hope that you get to see this book, otter all of the hard work that 
you put in. Good luck in your new life in CA and I hope that you 
don't forget me when you become famous. I might need your 
help with connections some day. I hope to see you on the big 
screen soon. 

Ben, thanks for always making me lough, even though 

sometimes I guess I did't understand what I was laughing at. 
Sometimes I was laughing at your ideas. You had the knack for 
always catching me off guard. I never knew quite what you were 
going to do or soy. But, I guess that's what mode it fun. I might sur- 
prise you and actually approve one of your outrageous ideas. 
Thanks for making my job fun. 

Laurie, thanks so much for stepping in at the lost minute and 
taking on a mess. I really appreciate the time you spent and all 
the cleaning you did. I don't know what we would have done 
without you. Indye, Maggie, and Paul, thanks so much for helping 
with deadlines. Without you, I don't think this book would have 

Adam and Kathleen, thanks for consistently writing great 
stories. Adam, even if you think that you can't write, I love all the 
stories. Gino, I cannot believe that we made it. Thanks for taking 
on what might be a monstrous job, without having oclue as to 
what was going on. You did a great job and the sections look 

To the Diamondbock photographers, especially Lee, thanks for 
the pictures and all the help when I was in dire need of a 
photography editor. I really appreciate it. To all the writers, thank 
you for you outstanding stories and for adding so much to the 
book. When I wanted more copy, you provided it. Even though I 
didn't see a lot of you much. I really appreciate all the time and 
effort you put in to help me add copy to the book. 

Beth, thanks for everything. You did a great job and I really ap- 
preciate it. I will miss you next year. 

To all the photographers, I wouldn't forget you. Thanks for be- 
ing the "eyes' of my 'baby.' I couldn't hove done this without you. 
Celio, your shots and prints were amazing. You have a great eye. 
I really appreciate all of the hours you spent on the job for me. 

To everyone else, if I forgot you, I am truly sorry. I hope I did not 
leave anyone out. 

Last, but not least. Mom and Dad, thanks for your support, en- 
couragement and most of all, love. Thanks for having faith in me. 
too. I really couln't have done this without you. 

I truly hope that this book embodies the distinct aspects of the 
University of Maryland as I hod hoped, and that it means as much 
to the 1992 grads as it does to me. Thanks for a great year!! 

The 1991-92 school year came to an 
end just like those before. This past year 
brought about many changes both good 
and bad that marked the University for 
future classes to come. 

At the top of the list were the enormous 
amounts of budget cuts that crashed 
over the camopus in wave after wave of 
cutbacks. These cutbacks were designed 
to help the state adhere to a new 

Cutbacks ranged from tuition increases 
to class cancelations and from professors 
being fired to the termination of various 
programs of study. 

In reaction to the cutbacks, students 
and teachers alike joined together to 
protest the dramatic changes. Protests 
took place both here on the College Park 
campus as well as at the State House in 

In sports, the Terps face a few rough 
times as well. Both the football and the 
men's basketball teams were plagued by 
injuries and adversity. 

Terp head football coach, Joe Krivak 
resigned after a disappointing season 
and the athletic department hired Holy 
Cross football coach, Mark Duffner to 
head the Terp team. 

On the other side of the spectrum, 
women's sports teams began to get the 
attention that they hove long deserved. 
The Lady Terps Basketball Team surprised 
just about everyone in the country by 
capturing the number one ranking in the 
country, by defeating former number 
one University of Virginia in front of a sold 
out Virginia crowd. 

The Terp Field Hockey team had a 
great year as well. They returned to the 
NCAA Championship game before bow- 
ing out. 

The campus also underwent a facelife 
of sorts in the past year. Many new 
buildings were completed and others 
were just under construction at year's 
end. Still others underwent minor, or major 

No matter who you were or what you 
did, the past year at the University of 
Maryland left a Mark of Distinction on 
everyone's lives.

Terrapin 1992 marks the 91st volume of the University of 
Maryland, College Pork yearbook. Josten's Printing and 
Publishing Co. produced the 332 page book on 80 pound 
gloss enamel stock paper with a trim size of 9 x 12, a press run 
of 1, 750 and 16 color pages. The cover is a reproduction of ort- 
v^/ork created by Rose Ann Hoover, who also designed the 
endsheets and divider pages. 

Eric Monto served as Josten's Co. representative with Linda 
Nolf acting as the in-plant consultant. Carl Wolf Studios of 
Sharon Hill, PA photgraphed the graduates and supplied the 
Terrapin staff's photographic needs. Collegiate Concepts Inc. 
of Atlanta, GA sold the advertisements for the 1992 Terrapin. 

Maryland Medio, Inc., and independent, non-profit organiza- 
tion, owns and operates the Terrapin. The MMI Board of Direc- 
tors appointed Kristo Parker editor-in-chief of Terrapin 1992. 

The dominant face used was Avont Garde. All copy was lO 
point and captions were eight point. Zepf Chancery Medium, 
Elan Italic and American Classic were used for headlines. The 
theme was created by editor-in-chief Krista Parker. Groups 
pictured in the Organizations and Greeks sections paid for 
their space. 

The Terrapin staff would like to thank the Diomondbock 
photographers for the great condids and the staff of the 
Sports Information for press passes and season reviews. 

In order to meet pre-set deadlines, coverage in the Sports 
section contains photographs and information from the 
1990-1991 season for winter sports, 1991 season for spring sports 
and the 1991 season for fall sports.
