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
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.
'1990-91 Maryland residents' annual tui-
tion and fees: $2270; board: $2,094; room:
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
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

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

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.

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

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.
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
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 Stamp Student Union does just that.
With an influx of over 17,000 people dai-

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

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.
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!

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-
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

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!

The 155 students at the "l-House" come
from 32 countries around the v»/orld;

American. Residents come to College

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

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

The current success of the Marching
Bond also has a lot to do with Bond Direc-

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

sections. The 1991-1992 Drum Majors were

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.
"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,"
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.
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,"

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
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
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
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
"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.

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

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
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.

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

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,"
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.
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
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
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
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,"
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."

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

definitely O-U-T. But, what is in? Even scholars and

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
"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
The Lost Generation of the 1920's was disen-

and riches. However, from that rebellion came on

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!
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.

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-
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
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.

People die from AIDS; numbers don't.
The names, faces, hobbies, interests and goals
of 32 individuals who died from AIDS were

people who were directly involved with the

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
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
"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.

At the time, I felt I was auditioning for
the nation's top modeling agency. In
reality, that advice was given to me by
my Rush counselor, and I was about to
experience Fall Formal Rush.
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
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 '

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.
TOP TEN REASONS TO LIVE ON
CAMPUS AT UMCP
^0. Get your money's worth out of the UM Shuttle System.
9. Compete for the most days on individual can go without doing a
load of laundry.
8. Experience the exhiiirating rush of scalding hot water in the shower
when someone flushes the toilet.
7. Listen to the sexy Voice Message Center recordings.
6. Prove to your parents that pizza with everything on it provides
nourishment from the four food groups.
5. This is the only time you will welcome a pink slip in your mailbox.
4. Dust bunnies make adorable pets.
3. Why spend thousands in plastic surgery for a more voluptuous
figure when Dining Services produces the same results without the
2. For the little red light that blinks happily on Friday afternoons.

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.

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-
"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
"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
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

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

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.
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
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.

Yet it does not seem that long ago
since we first entered the University of
Maryland as scared, nervous freshmen or

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-

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.

The President of UM's Finance Banl<ing and Investment
Society graduated from College Park to enter a working
world he has already been part of during his entire
academic career. Bryan Beatty paid for his own educa-
tion by working at a full-time job since starting school.
Nevertheless, this finance major has been a port of the
Dean's Council for the Business College, the AT&T Col-
legiate Investment Challenge, and outside business
Originally an engineering major, Beatty left school for
three semesters after his sophomore year to "find out
what I was interested in." Beatty worked as a designer at
an engineering firm and traveled, but then discovered he
really wanted to make money.
Returning to school and the world of business, Beatty
undertook a variety of jobs and internships. Over the
past six years he bartended, worked as a waiter and
manager, in such establishments as the he 94th Aeros-
quadron, a College Park watering hole. In the spring of
1990, Beatty was on intern to the vice president of Wheat
First Securities, an area financial institution. Over the past
summer, Beatty managed his own painting contracting
company in which he generated revenues of $120,000
with a profit margin of 21%.
As for the future, Beatty has received five offers for
employment following graduation. He will be accepting
one of the opportunities in the financial services industry.

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
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?
GO TO GRAD SCHOOL!!!
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
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
Kautsky has managed to achieve an
outstanding academic record while
managing a busy household, and is a
wonderful role model for any returning

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
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
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
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
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,"
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."
Agricultural & Resource
School of Architecture
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

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.

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

he does so much other stuff besides just
Another favorite in the College of Arts

global climate change, and sea level ris-
ing." said sophomore. Spanish major
Maria Johnson, who works at the Center.
Probably the most ambitious and im-
portant program at the College is the
ICONS project. Through this computer-
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
foreign languages to practice their skills
through time computer-conferencing, "It

College of Business
Most business students have a certain
determination. A passion. A desire to
achieve what most Americans can only

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-

The College of Business Management
offers numerous degrees including ac-

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."
j College of Education
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."

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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-

but unless the state government and the tax-
payers realize its importance and contribute
accordingly to its survival, this valuable
resource will disappear."
"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."

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 '

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-

least for now.

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.

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

After high school. Smith spent two years
at Coffeyville Community College, in Cof-

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-

Chris Weller is no stranger to the NCAA

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,

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.

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

at Maryland. She has now moved the
score up to 13.8. Jesse Hicks may soon
become the leading Terrapin scorer.

15 seasons already behind her. She has
led the Terps to the final four on three oc-

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.

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

There were some highlights however as the men had con-

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

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.

Reflecting on his lacrosse experiences

Kavovit saw action in all fifteen games

224 saves and 143 opponent goals gave
him a .610 overage, while other goalies

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

The 1992 squad is looking sharp as ever. New players, as well as veteran seniors, are

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
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
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.

The Terps returned a host of great
players in hopes of having that great

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-

the Terps' bubble burst with a four game

West Virginia, Pittsburgh, and Georgia

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
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
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
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."

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.
UM Cheerleaders and Testudo Terps' Most Loyal Fans
LET'S GO MARYLAND!!
LET'S GO IVIARYLAND!!
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,

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
"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 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
"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,"

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,
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
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
Editor in Chief
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
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-
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
