"We are truly fortunate to have Sister 
Anne on our Child Study faculty teaching 
those who aspire to a career in special 
education," said S. George Aquin, "and 
we congratulate her on this much 
deserved honor." 

For those who lived and worked with 
Sister, it was clear that her approach to 
death was as direct and courageous as her 
approach to life. No one could fail to be 
inspired by her grasp of what was and 
what was to be. ..her calm resignation and 
unflinching faith. 

Her loss will be felt by many in a variety 
of ways. As a member of the 
Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph 
for over 52 years, she will be missed by her 
community as a beloved Religious. As a 
professional, she will be missed as a 
knowledgeable, competent colleague. As 
a compassionate friend. ..she will be 
missed by us all. 

(Sister George Aquin's tribute read at 
the Mass of the Resurrection will appear 
in the Summer Alumnagram).

specialists. In addition, it is a service to 
public, private, city, state and national 
agencies which have visited, participated 
in, learned from, and imitated the 
College's model program.

In Patchogue, the D'Ecclesiians 
presented D.L. Coburn's "The Gin 
Game" starring Dan Williams and Cindy 
Noble. The show was produced by 
students Jack Shoppmeyer. Mary Sue 
Whitehead. Carroll Gair and Joseph 
Doutney. Sister Grace Edna Rowland is 
director of the group. 

In Brooklyn. Philip Barry's wise and 
witty Broadway hit comedy, "The 
Philadelphia Story" was the vehicle for 
TTie Chapel Players under the direction of 
Dr. Robert Radus. The play detailed a day 
in the life of a wealthy young divorcee 
from a prominent Philadelphia familyand 
the four men in her life — her fiance, her 
ex-husband, her father and a new 
unexpected romantic involvement. 

Carolyn Sorrentino puts finishing touch on 
Frank Cerasoli for "Philadelphia Story." 


Construction of the Clare Rose 
Playhouse at the College's Patchogue 
Campus has begun. Slated as a 199-seat 
off-Broadway style open space theatre, the 
new lake-side structure will function as a 
teaching area for the College's drama 
program and as a performance base for 
the dramatic group. In addition, local 
residents will be invited to participate in 
community theatre projects and children's 
theatre workshops. 

The Playhouse represents a unique 
relationship between Clare Rose, founder 
of Clare Rose. Inc. of Patchogue. and the 
College. Mr. Rose designated St. Joseph's 
as the recipient of a $35,000 contribution 
resulting from the Long Island Charities 
Foundation Dinner Dance in June, at 
which he was honored. (This grant will be 
the primary funding vehicle for the 

Throughout the summer, Mr. Rose, 
Sister Grace Edna, Director of the College 

Drama Group, and a number of drama 
students have worked diligently to 
renovate an existing frame house which 
will serve as the new theatre's lobby, box 
office and dressing room area. The 
addition to this building will be the 
performance area. 

"Mr. Rose's personal involvement, his 
willingness to work shoulder to shoulder 
with us, and his tremendous assistance 
with technical and structural 
recommendations have been a vital part of 
this project," said Sister Grace Edna. 
"And the wonderful rapport he has 
established with the students — his genuine 
warmth and kindness toward them have 
truly affected them. They see him as a role 
model and respond to his real dedication 
and sense of community." 

Sister Grace hopes that the Clare Rose 
Playhouse will be completed for the spiing 
production of the rousing musical 
comedy, "They're Playing Our Song." 

Clare Rose (right) works with architect and 
construction crews as foundation for the 
playhouse is dug. Mr. Ro.\e has also been 
instrumental in getting donated services and 
goods from local firms.

For most of us, "a dream come true" is 
for other people. ..or if it does happen to 
us at all, it is rarely so predictable that we 
can give it a name, a date, or a place. 
However, for Sister Grace Edna Rowland, 
Assistant Professor of Speech Commun- 
ication and Director of the Drama Club, 
her dream come true is so real that it has a 
name - The Clare Rose Playhouse - it has 
a dale - June 2, 1985 - and it has a place- 
Lakeside at St. Joseph's College, Patch- 

It is on that date and in that place that 
the Clare Rose Playhouse will officially 
open its doors as the College's beautiful, 
new Repertory Theatre. 

Sister Grace has worked on that dreain 
for o\ er two years, studying \ arious types 
of theatrical architecture, discussing tech- 
nical lighting, sound and floor plans 
with designers, and e\ aluating a number 
of programs and productions which 
would serve both student and community 

When the planning was completed, all 
that remained was the funding. Clare 
Rose, a proininent Patchogue business- 
iTian, helped the College leceive an initial 
grant of S35,000 from the Long Island 
Charities Foundation. Since that time. 

Mr. Rose and his colleagues in the Long 
Island business community have joined 
together to provide cash and contributed 
goods and services sufficient to complete 
the project. "Clare Rose put his heart and 
soul into this venture," said Sister Grace. 
"No one has worked harder or longer 
than he - that kind of dedication just 
doesn't carry a price tag." 

So - on June 2, the College celebrates 
the opening of the Clare Rose Playhouse 
with a presentation of the Neil Simon 
comedy "They're Playing Our Song" 
and a gala reception and dedication ceie- 

Some dreams do come true!

They both planted bushes and set down sod. 

The Clare Rose Family joined the SJC Family to celebrate the 
fruits of their labor. . . 

The flag was raised. 

A portrait unveiled. 

And the curtain rose on actors Bob 
Arthur and Michele Stanions and on a 
new cultural era at St. Joseph's College. . 
a dream come true! 

On Sunday, June 2, the Clare Rose

Fall 198.5 


On October 1, Sister Virginia Therese 
Callahan, C.S.J. , Vice President and 
Dean of the Suffolk Campus, died at the 
Maria Regina Con vent of the Sisters of St. 
Joseph in Brentwood after a long illness. 

It would be impossible to adequately 
assess Sister \'irginia's vital role in the 
growth and development of St. Joseph's 
College. Her leadership was felt at the 
Brooklyn Campus as well as in Suffolk. 
As a member of the Board of Trustees and 
of the President's Council, she was 
instrumental in spearheading many 
creative and innovative aspects of curri- 
cularandextia-curricular life at SJC. Her 
spirit and enthusiasm were per\asi\e and 
contagious. E\erything was "do-able". 
The Patchogue Campus stands as a visible 
tribute to her faith and her talent. 

Sister \'irginia's affiliation with St. 
Joseph's extends back to 1947, when she 
joined the College's chemistry depart- 
ment. Later, as Diiector of Development, 
she was instrumental in the construction 
of the Dillon Child Study Center and 
McEntegart Hall. In 1967, she became 
Principal of the Mary Louis Academy, 
and in 1969, assumed that responsibility 
at the Academy of St. Joseph in Brent- 
wood. In these roles, and also as a member 
of the General Council of the Sisters of St. 
Joseph, for a decade, Sister's ex( eptionai 
qualities as administrator and educator 

became well known.

Sister J'irgi7}ia Therese Callahan. C.S.J. 



Sacred Heart Chapel, Brentwood — October 5, 1985 

Inc.Khul ihe three readings you ha\ejusl heard. I find something speaking about the liicand 
person oi Sister \'iiginia Therese. C;orresjx)ndiiii?l\ . I find her enhant iiig the mc.ining of se\ eral 
lines in each selection. 

The last lines of the section ol ihc Bookol Job read lo us were these: "Whom I myself shall see; 
my own eyes, not another's shall behold him: and from my flesh I shall see God, my inmost 
being is consumed with longing '. Vou ccjuld not come near Virginia and remain \erv long in 
her presence without feeling her strong failh in the living God. I am not thinking about the 
lec ilation of the .Apostles' Greed with the full commitment of a Catholic mind, but of the reality 
that the Cjeed points to, of the living lealily which is the source of all being. "My own eyes, not 
another's shall behold him. My inmost being is consumed with longing." These words speak 
eloquently of \'iiginia's mind and heart and personalitv. , 

In the second reading I find these words of St. Paul panic ularh \eiified m \irginia's life. "We 
know that while we dwell in the body, we are away liom the Lord. . . We would inuc h rather be 
awa\ from the bcxiy and at home with the Lord. This being so, we make it our aim to please him 
whethe] we are with him or awa\ from him." I confess that I admired and envied Sister 
X'irginia's balanced laiili, especially in recent years, when she was first stricken with cancer. She 
faced the threat of death with serene courage. She also was determined lo remain on the job as 
long as the Lord would allow her. If she gave in to panic when cancer came. I did not perceive it. 
And it she sjjared herself at work after recovery. I saw no signs of it. 

This ability to have the roots of her being in two worlds probably accounts for the fact that she 
was at the same time the most prac tical of realists and the most imagin.itive of idealists. My own 
personal preference is for idealism. Ihe support of good friends who were my companions in 
ministry made up for mv deficienc ies in the practical world of management. From my special 
vantage |)oint. her excellence in both areas was a matter of wonder and admiration. What a gift 
she brought to her Communities!! 

When I asked some of the Sisters to perform a liturgical dance at my Golden Jubilee 
celebration I nearly fell off my chair when Virginia volunteeied to be one ol the group. When the 
day came, the dance was one of the highlights of a very joyful occasion. The stately Dean of St. 
Joseph's College might not have been the nimblest dancer there, but she was outstanding: she 
was the tallest. I shall never foigel the happiness she brought to the occasion. It seemed 
strikingly .ip[3ropriate to find in the refrain ol the opening hv mn of this Mass the line: "May our 
tears be turned into dancing." 

j'o'ui 17:2''-26. . ."Jusl Father, the world lias not known you. but I haie known 
you: and these men have known that you sent me. To them I 
have re-vealed your name, and ! with ontinue to rei'eal it so that 
yinir love for me ma\ liir in them, and I may live in them." 

It IS in the third reading that I liiid \'irginia most fullv expressed. My insight is borrowed from 
Father John Shea of C:hic ago, my lav orite conlemjjorary theologian. In writing of the mission of 
Jesus to bi ing his heav enly Fathei lo mankind, John Shea asks the question: "What was it about 
Jesus that mediated the div ine? Did be speak the words of God? Yes, but more. Did he do the 
deeds of Ciod? Yes. but more. It was the very person of Jesus, his core self that made the divine 
accessible. Meeting Jesus meant more than exchanging words or sharing actions. When anyone 
really met Jesus, the encounter moved through words and actions to their secret source, two 
people personally present to one another. " 

More than most of us X'irginia was able to be present to others with the core of her being. This 
gentle woman had allowed herself to encounter Jesus in a way that drew the very roots of her 
person to the life that Jesus shared with his father. .\nd all of us were enriched by that. In the 
presence of \'irginia you could be free without thinking about it. In the presence ol Xirginia I 
found it easy to be mvself. 

In my personal pantheon there are several people who were close to me in hie and no longer 
walk the earth. I regard them as "imperishable" people whose lives were so vibrani that it is 
impossible for me lo im.igine them .is being less fully alive and happy, .\mong ihem are mv 
own mother who lived to be a hearty ninelv-one. Doroibv Day whose life touched mine when I 
was young, and Father Charles Bovd.a humble pi iesi whom some oi vou mav remember as I do. 
as a man who was always "wiili it". Xiiginia is now with them in the companv of the most

Her gifts were exercised to the fullest as 
a member of a number of boards of 
trustees and advisors, including those of 
the St. Francis de Sales School for the 
Deaf, the Seminary of the Immaculate 
Conception, Brookhaven Memorial 
Hospital Medical Center, Catholic Chari- 
ties, and, of course, St. Joseph's College, 
where she was also secretary to the Board. 

Each one who knew Sister Virginia has 
been touched and enriched by her. Each 
will mourn her loss in a unique way. 





conhnued from page I 

I offer my deepest sym[3athy to you who are grieving here today, far more deeply than I can, 
because your lives were more completely and intimately bound to her than mine. I pray with you 
that her loving Father will give her whatever she needs now to dance with the perfect joy and 
freedom that her life presaged. May she come dancing to meet each of us as we are called into the 
fuller life with our Father.

Reflection after Communion - Sister John Raymond 

"No gift IS proper to a Deity 
No fruit IS worthy for such power to bless 
If you have nothing, gather hack your sigh 
And with your hands held high 
Lift up your emptiness." 
These lines of Jessica Powers were favorite to Sister Viiginia Therese - and those who knew 
her well can readily see why. For despite her many gifts of keen intellect - blessed with 
remarkable powers of analytic thinking - logic - synthesis and evaluation, her gifts of joy. 
delicate sensitivity, composure, willmgness to risk, to dare, to dream, to envision and to make 
things happen, I truly believe Sister Virginia saw all these as gifts of God. Aware of her own 
emptiness, like Mary, Mother of God, she made her "Fiat" and was ready and open to God's 
wondrous ways. She readilv acknowledged - that He who is mighty has done great things to me. 
She loved life, li\'ed it well and fully and, I believe, without scruple. She at led out of a deep 
commilmenl to the Lord and responded generously and capably to the needs of her chemistry 
students, to the call to adminisualion at Mary Louis, the Academy of St. Joseph and St. 
Joseph's College in Patchogue, to the Congregation's election as Couni illor foi two terms, to 
the Boards of Trustees with which she shared her insights, and to all whom she met. 

The last several times I visited her sick room in Maria Regina, I saw near her bed a copy of a 
book entitled Resurrection and knew her thoughts were on that reality. No longer was it time 
for plannmg on her yellow pad in her inimitable writing. 

Shortly after her death, I opened the book to where she had a marker: 

"True compassion", it said, "brings together love and justice so that caring 
for others demands a response to their need. This happens first m face-to- 
face is never enough to love people in the abstract without 
loving the particular people whose Iwes intertwine with ours. . . Face-to- 
face compassion is a willingness to respond to the need of the person we see 
in front of us." 
Sister Viiginia Therese readily gave such a response, giving time and attention to the pel son 

she encountered at the moment. She had a magnificent gift of eliiiting lo\e, admiration, 

respect and loyalty and a very, very special talenl for peicei\ ing others' gifts and eniouraging 

and fostering their development. 

As was her custom to face directly whatever situation lay before her, aflera valiant struggle to 

maintain health, she accepted the reality of her impending death, inspiring all who watc bed 

her weaken. 

In the book pie\iously cited. I found h.iiul written lines from a dear friend who wiole the 

words of Juliana of Norwich — 

"And to all this our courteous Lord answered, 

to gii'e me comfort and patience: 

Suddenly you will be taken out of all your 

pain, all your, all your unrest 

and all your woe. And you will come up 

aboi'e and you will have me for your reward 

and you will be filled full of joy and bliss, 

and you will never again have any kind of pain, 

any kind of sickness, any kind oj displeasure, but always joy without end. 

Why then should it afflict you to endure for awhile, since it is my will and 

to my glory." 

On the feast of St. Therese, Sister Virginia Therese quietly breathed her last, surrounded by 
some of those whom she loved, and in the lines of the responsorial psalm of the day, I am sure 
she exclaimed, — 

"In you. Lord, I hai'e found my peace." 

And being Sister Virginia Therese, I am sure that for her brothers Jack and Jerry, for her 
relatives and many friends, and for the Congregation which she loved dearly, she will 
continually ask of the Lord, — 

"Dear God, fill them with your lox'e and your peace."

Instructor Andrew Taylor, CPA, discusses 
new accounting major with students. 

AcconTXTiivG Major 

Sister Mary Florence Burns, Academic 
\'ice President, has announced that the 
New York State Education Department 
has registered a new accounting major 
for both the Brooklyn and Patchogue 
campuses. Upon graduation, students 
would receive a Bachelor of Science 
Degree and would be eligible to sit for the 
CPA exam. 
f St. Joseph's students will have a special 
" advantage in this field of professional 
accounting, since their accounting pro- 
gram is strongly based in the liberal arts, 
ilius providing them with the intellectual 
foundation necessary for the broader 
application of their technical skills. 

"B\ integrating the technical require- 
ments for accounting with the broader 
conceptual knowledge, we will graduate 
an educated professional, capable of 
meeting the challenge of business in 
Kxiay's society ." said Sister Mary Florence. 
The Admissions Offices at both cam- 
puses expect at least a 10% increase in 
applications as a result of this announce-

ceeds Sister Virginia Therese who acted

"I can't wait for summer - this one will 
be the most exciting of my life!" 

If you sense a feeling of great expecta- 
tions. . . you're right! This statement was 
made by Gregory Branch a j unior biology 
pre-med student at St. Joseph's College 
in Brooklyn. 

Gregory had just received word from 
NASA that he has been selected as one of 
thirty students from across America and 
its possessions to participate in the 1986 
Space Life Sciences Training Program to 
be held at the Kennedy Space Center, 
from June 9th to July 18th. In addition, 
Gregg qualifies for a week of intensive 
training at the Alabama Space and Rocket 
Center in Huntsville from July 18th to 
July 26th. 

"I can't believe I'll actually be working 
on experiments slated for a space flight." 
hecontinued. "And. . . we'll learn how to 
develop and conduct the test protocols, 
plan and execute a shuttle crew training 
session, assist in the design and testing of 
preflight and postflight procedures, and 
conduct ground tests of hardware and 
equipment and then analyze and evaluate 
postflight data. " 

Sound like too much to absorb in seven 
weeks? Not for Gregg. He came to St. 
Joe's on a full-tuition scholarship from 
Xaverian High School in Brooklyn. The 
challange of SJC's demanding pre-med 
program has established him as a solid 
student - he is on the Dean's List and has 
gained membership in two prestigious 
honor societies, Sigma Iota Chi and Delta 
Epsilon Sigma. His on-campus exploits 
don't stop there. He is the Undergraduate 
Association Treasurer and has served on 
eight clubs and committees, including 
the College Advisory Council, the Dance 
Club, the Chapel Players (dramatics), the 

Chorus Club, the Photography Club, 
Footprints (yearbook), the Folk Group 
and the Gaelic Society. 

In addition, Gregg is the first student 
to be featured in a series of new ads high- 
lighting the achievements of SJC students 
and grads. 

Off-campus, Gregg is very active in his 
parish and the St. Agnes Alumni Associa- 
tion Board. He also works 25 hours a 
week at Mercy Home for children in 
Brooklyn as Direct Care Counselor to 
mentally handicapped adolescents. His 
mterest in the handicapped stems from 
his volunteer duties at St. Vincent's 
Mentally Handicapped Home when he 
was an SJC freshman. 

"I have had every opportimity to grow 
and develop my interests here at St. 
Joseph's, " said Gregory. "The size of our 
classes p>ermit individual experimentation 
and a close working relationship with 
faculty and other students. It has been 
perfect for me." 

Gregory is awaiting the results of his 
MCAT tests and plans to apply to a 
number of medical schools this fall. 

"I hope I've done well enough to be 
accepted into a medical school for 
September '87. . . preferably one in New 
York State. I love New York." 

Another expectation! Anyone care to 
bet against it? 

Athletic Director Frank Mulzoff explann 
new team programs. 


Frank B. Mulzoff, SJC's former basket- 
ball coach, has been appointed Director 
of .-Xthletics for the Suffolk Campus. The 
newly created position is in response to 
the rapid development of that campus 
and the increasing needs of its growing 
student population. 

In additon to recreational and intra- 
minal programs, the College also expects 
to increase its participation in men's and 
women's intercollegiate athletics - adding 
men's and women's cross country, men's 
and women's tennis, men's soccer, 
women's softball, men's baseball and 
golf teams. Currently, St. Joseph's fields 
teams in women's volleyball, men's 
basketball and softball. as well as in 
equestrian competition. 

In addition to Mr. Mulzoff's appoint- 
ment, Jim Murphy has been named the 
basketball coach and Gary Smith, a true 
"soccer pioneer " in Suffolk Coimty, has 
assimied the post of soccer coach.

Last year, the Surdna Foundation 
granted a $25,000 award to Sister Helen 
Kearney and the College's Dillon Child 
Study Center for the production of a 
training film on the Center's program for 
mainstreaming developmentally delayed 
preschool children. 

After months of planning and careful 
production, the thirty-three minute tape 
has been completed and is ready for 
distribution to other colleges and imiver- 
sities. libraries, clinical settings, develop- 
mental centers and parents' organizations. 
Sister Helen believes the program is a 
much needed tool in the "wholistic" 
education of handicapped children. 

"Traditionally, a special child receives 
an education geared specifically to his or 
her disability," said Sister Helen. "This 
type of program provides very narrow 
experiences. We believe our approach lo 
mainstreaming - dealing with the disa- 
bility as only a part of the education 
process within a normal setting - helps 
children develop a sense of confidence 

and a realistic sense of themselves so that 
they can be fimctional people within the 
larger society. " 

The Dillon Center serves approximately 
100 children - eight of whom are in the 
special program. This class has two full- 
time teachers and three part-time special- 
ists - a speech therapist, a psychologist 
and a parent coordinator. This class 
spends part of its day with the regular 
kindergarten group in standard activities.

Clare Rose Piavhouse celebrates First Birthday 

The Clare Rose Playhouse is fairly 
bursting with energy and enthusiasm - 
much of which is spilling over to its 
friends and neighbors in the Suffolk 

In early spring, the Playhouse held a 
benefit performance for Mercy Center, a 
residence for homeless girls ages 16-21. 
"The Rink" was the Playhouse's June 
production and played to sold-out audi- 

Scheduled for the remainder of the year 
are Neil Simon's rousing comedy, 
"Chapter Two", which will run July 24, 
25, 26, 26, 27, 31 , and August 1 , 2, and 3; 
"Deja Revue", a cabaret show, slated for 
Sept. 27 and 28; "Storytelling Swap", on 
Oct. 3 and 4; "Night Mother", Nov. 7, 8. 
9, 14, 15, and 16 (with a special Alumni 
matinee performance on Sunday, Nov. 
9th at 3 p.m., preceded by brunch at the 
Pine Grove Inn); and the popular 
Children's Theatre to run the week of 
December 15th. 

With all this activity, one would think 
the First Anniversary of the Playhouse 
might have slipped by unnoticed. Not so! 
To celebrate the healthy baby's first 
birthday (June 2), Sister Grace Edna 
Rowland, Director of the Playhouse, 

planned a dinner cruise aboard the 
Patchogue River's "Bay Mist". Over 100 
guests enjoyed the four-hour cruise, a 
performance of "Deja Revue", and 
dancing to the music of a popular DJ. 

The evening was so successful, it will 
probably become an annual event. Over 
$1,400 was raised for the Playhouse.

Recently both campuses of St. Joseph's 
College held Open House programs which 
drew hundreds of prospective students, 
parents, friends, and high school 

Featured events included campus tours, 
visits with departmental chairmen and 
faculty, club presentations, demonstra- 
tions, and scholarship and financial aid 

Representatives of the Admissions 
Office were on hand to provide registra- 
tion information and facilitate individual 
and group interviews. Marion Salgado, 
Director of Admissions at Patchogue, 
and Roseanne Henry, coordinator of 
Special Programs at Brooklyn, agreed 
that most inquiries centered around 


careers m medicine, law. business, and 

"Our new accounting major is certainly 
gainingatlention". remarked Ms. Henry. 
"People are also recognizing the ad\ant- 
ages of combining traditional liberal arts 
majors, like history. English, or langu- 
ages, with a business component. It 
provides an added dimension to their 
professional abilities and enhances their 
career opportunities". 

She added, "of course, everyone is 
concerned about finances - so, our 
generous financial aid packages were a 
welcome surprise to many. They couldn't 
believe that o\er 87% of our students 
receive some form of aid - making SJC 
verv affordable.

During the summer, Clare T. Bauch 
'45, chairman of the event, asked faculty,

bers submitted topics, among which were, 
"Three Going on Nine", "Color Connec- 
tions", The Richness and the Poverty of 
Love". "Theology of Death and Dying", 
and "Russian Icons: VVindowson Heaven". 
Two of the courses were over-subscribed: 
Monsignor Charles E. Diviney 's "Vatican 
II — Revisited" and Dr. Kevin Reilly's 
"Ancient Ireland: Its Prehistoric and 
Celtic Origins."

Ferris celebrated Mass for all alumni/ae, 
living and deceased. When the morning 
classroom session ended, the next hoin

SJC Faculty Chosen for NYU Program 

Di. Da\id Sepalla-Holtzman (Math 
Dept.) has been selected by the Board of 
Directors of the New York University 
Faculty Resources Network Program for 
the position of Scholar-In-Residence tor 
the Spring 1987 semester. Each semester 
there are two Scholars-In-Residence 
selected on a competitive basis from the 
faculties of the nine colleges in the Faculty

nity to build strong ties with colleagues 
in their respective fields that are expected 
to endure beyond the period of residency. 

The Directors were so impressed with 
Dr. Stanley Nevins' (Phil. Dept.) applica-

that challenge. As we go to press, the 
fledgling hooters have compiled a respect- 
able record of two wins, five losses and 
one tie. 

The enthusiasm that has been moun- 
ting at the Patchogue Campus overflowed

SJC Offers CrImlnalJustlce Certificate Program 

The New York State Education Depart- 
irieiit has approved the College's Ciiininal 
Justice Certificate Program which will be 
offered at both campuses in Brooklyn and 
Patchogue, New York. The 24-credit 
program is open to any major at St. 
Joseph's College as well as to practitioners 
in the law enforcement field who are 
interested in returning to school for the 
certificate only. 

According to Dr. William Bengston, 
an Associate Professor of Sociology with 
a specialty in criminology, "Students 
will receive both theoretical and practical 
exposure to the criminal justice system 
and will develop widely applicable skills 
in research designs, data analysis, and 
applied statistics. The combination of 
skills isa primary attraction to the program. " 

The faculty involved in the Criminal 
Justice Certificate Program are quick to 
point out, however, that the program is 

not intended as technical law enforcement 
training. '"The courses stress the ability 
to think critically, to evaluate and to 
access research, policy, and their con- 
sequences. These are important skills 
that are currently being sought by 
employers throughout the criminal jus- 
tice field as well as by law schools," 
explained Barbara Morell, Assistant 
Professor of Sociology and a graduate of 
the S.U.N.Y. Albany School of Criminal 

"The certificate is of particular im- 
portance in contemporary times like 
ours." notes attorney David Hilgendorff, 
Assistant Professor of Political Sciences. 
"The certificate, in combination with a 
science degree, provides the student with 
both skills and an educational background 
that can translate into numerous occu- 

during the spring semester, at no cost to 
the students. 

The original program consisted of two 
groups of three Saturday sessions, with a 
weekJend off in between. Each session 
focused on a topic in chemistry, biology, 
or physics. However, when announce- 
ments were sent to area high schools, the 
response was so great that a third set of 
Saturday laboratory experiences had to 
be scheduled. 

Twenty-two private and public high 
schools were represented, including 
Forest Hills H.S., FontbonneHall, Bishop 
Kearney and Jamaica H.S. 

Assisting S. Mary Maier were Dr. Carol 
Hayes and Dr. Moira Royston of the 
Biology Dept. and S. Mary CordeTymann 
of the Physics Dept. All hope the program 
will be a regular part of the College's 
contribution to the cominunitv.

ST. JOSEPHS EQUESTRIAN TEAM is young and building, but it has been 
competitive in the many shows in which it has participated - and. March 29. SJC 
co-sponsored an Equestrian Show at Good Shepherd Farm in Vaphank. Here, our top 
riders Lori Napp, and Ann Marie Carbonetto take a "timeout" from practice witli coach

PHONATHON '87 On March 31st. 55 
\ olunteers met in the cafeteria of the New 
York Telephone Building on Zeckendorf 
Boulevard in Garden City to use the 
thirty telephones which were made avail- 
able for PHONATHON '87 through the 
generosity of the Telephone Company. 

Our zealous callers reached 2752 of our 
alumni whohadnotyetgi\en to Alumni

recei\e this call and made pledges which 
totaled 538,961. 


"Silk Stockings." Cole Porter's spark- 
ling musical spoof of Soviet officials 
corrupted by the magic of Paris, was 
presented by the Chapel Players of Saint 
Joseph's College, Brooklyn, in April. 

Starring in this production w^ere 
Gregory Branch and Kimberly Lake who, 
together with others in the 20-member 
cast, provided new choreography for the 
well-known musical routines. 

"We are breaking new ground in several 
ways." said Dr. Robert Radus. Director of 
Chapel Players and Professor of French 
at SJC. "Our leading players were black 
students assuming roles usually perform- 
ed by white actors and actresses . .\nd. . . 
the involvement of our cast in the creative 
aspects of the production provided a 
refreshing vigor and enthusiasm." 

MULZOFF, (Patchogue Campus) is in- 
terviewed during a recent visit to the 
"Golden Eagles" basketball practice by 
\'iacom Cablevision. This segment was 
shown when Coach Mulzoff was featured 
on Bill Chadwick's 'Big Whistle" sp>orts 
show on March 2nd. On .\pril 6th, both 
Mr. Muzoff and basketball coach Jim 
Murphy were hotline guests on "The Big 
Whistle" with members of the team. 

The reason for the TV time is the 
interest which has been generated in our 
athletic program in Patchogue. ■A.s new 
team sports have been introduced, an 
electrifying spirit of enthusiasm and unity 
has gained tremendous support for our 


ed an outstanding spring season on the 
Suffolk Campus as theatre goers enthus- 
iastically applauded the "sold out" 
performances of the musical "Godspel 1 " , 
and the highly entertaining "Story telling 
Festival". In addition, audiences were 
treated to Chamber Spring concerts 
featuring the internationally acclaimed 
Festival Chamber Players. 

Completing the spring season schedule 
will be Neil Simon's comedy "Star 
Spangled Girl" and the musical hit "I 
Do! I Do!". Reserve seats early- both will 
certainly he box office sellouts. . . For

Alumna's Gift Tripled By EXXON 

Mark S. Rose 


Frederick T. Shea, Chairman of the 
College's Board of Trustees, has 
announced the election of Mark S. Rose 
to the Board. Mr. Rose has been an active 
member of SJC's Suffolk Campus Advisory 
Board for over a year, giving leadership 
and promoting a number of projects, 
including the popular Clare Rose Play- 
house, named in honor of his father. 

A graduate of Siena College, Mr. Rose 
is Chairman of the Board of Clare Rose 
Inc. He also serves on the Board of 
Trustees at Siena and has served on the 
Boards of the Hewlett School and the 
Leway School. He is past-president of the 
Blue Point Lions Club and was Chairman 
of the South Brookhaven Heart Fund 
Dinner Dance. 

A major business executive in Suffolk 
County, Mr. Rose is affiliated with 
Reliance Heating, Therm A Trol , Quick- 
way Courier Service, Rose Spice, Inc., 
and Apple Sports, Inc. He has been 
honored for his charitable work by such 
organizations as Cooley's Anemia and 
Muscular Distrophy Foundations. 

The Matching Gift Program is alive 
and well at St. Joseph's College! 

For many years, major companies and 
organizations throughout the country 
have instituted matching gift programs 
both as a means of distributing their own 
corporate and foundation contributions 
to worthy charitable organizations. . . 
and as an incentive for employees to 
make private donations. Such gifts have 
always been a major source of income for 
the College's many scholarship, grant, 
and academic development programs. 

During this year's Alumni Phonathon, 
SJC's "pledge board" received a major 
jolt when an alumna, who works for 
Exxon, pledged $5,000 for three conse- 

cutive years which will be triple matched 
by the corporate grant - resulting in a 
total gift of 160,000. The alumna, who 
wishes to remain anonymous, is working 
with John Roth, the College's Chief 
Business Officer, to determine how her 
contribution might best be utilized for 
the benefit of our students. 

"This is a wonderful example of indi- 
vidual donors joining with the business 
community to provide much needed 
resources", noted Alumni Director, Mary 
Elizabeth Farrell. "We encourage our 
alumni and friends to determine if their 
donations are eligible for a match. If they 
are in doubt, we urge them to call their 
employer. . . or our office for infonnation." 

General Studies Registers New Programs 

The Division of General Studies has 
instituted two exciting offerings - a B.S. 
degree program in Management of 
Human Resources and a certificate 
program in Leadership and Human 
Resources Development. 

The new major is designed to promote 
career ad vancemen t and enables working 
adults to attain the credentials and skills 
essential for effective management. 

The certificate program is a 12-credit, 
four course offering. While these certi- 
ficates are available at the two campuses, 
SJC conducted on-site classes at Ridge- 
wood Savings Bank and Flushing Savings

ment for everyone and was a highly

For 165, the goiter's day included greens 
fees, an electric cart, golf balls, a barbecue 
lunch, prizes, and a full dinner following 
a cocktail hour. 

Athletic Director Frank Mulzoff was 
delighted that ". . . somany of our friends 
realize the importance of supporting our 
rapidly growing athletic program."

sponsoring a new scholarship program 
for listeners which may be applied to 
either the Brooklyn or Patchogue cam-

Celebration. The evening was billed to be 
spectacular - and it was! While cruising 
the great South Bay aboard the Patchogue 
River's "Baymist", guests were treated to 
a lavish dinner, live entertainment, and 
dancing to the music of a popular D.J. 
Funds were raised to help finance future 
productions at the Playhouse which has 
quickly become an integral part of the 
local Long Island community. 

Box office successes have been drawing 
sellout audiences since the curtain went 
upfor the Spring season. "GODSPELL", 
the hit musical, may have to go into a 
second production next year to accommo- 
date the many who were unable to get

(Excerpts from an address by Gerald 
Cestare 86, Former president of U.A. 
(Suffolk County) 

I was asked to speak about the ways in 
which SJC has challenged me to live out 
a value-oriented education. . . one thing I 
could single out that has made a difference 
is. . . one must never be afraid to take a 
risk. That challenge was made my first 
day here by S. Virginia Therese Callahan, 
the Dean at the time. She said that the 
College - and life - for that matter, would 
only be as exciting and fulfilling as I 
made it. She said to ask at least one 
question everyday - and listen closely to 
the answer. I did this, and I assure you 
that I will never forget this place or her. 

I soon became involved in student 
government. . . my first risk. The next. . . 
realizing I will never please everyone. . . 
acting. . . and li\ ing through times when 
I really had to put my reputation on the 

The latest risk. . . choosing between a 
lucrative job as an advertising representa- 
tive at Newsday or as Director of Public 
Relations for Youth Focus, a relatively 
new organization which presented the 
opportunity of working with teenagers 
struggling with problems and choices of 
their own. I wanted to inake a differnce- 
so-I chose Youth Focus. . . I have never 
been happier. 

Whatever career you choose. . . you 
have the power to change things. . . be 
pleased with the work you do. . . the 
future truly is in your hands. The task 
ahead is to better the world we live in.

As the Fall Semester settles into its 
second month, St. Joseph's College has 
recorded another all- time high in student 
enrollment at its Suffolk Campus in 
Patchogue and in total enrollment at 
both its Brooklyn and Patchogue Camp- 
uses - now at 2,450. 

Marion Salgado, Director of Admis- 
sions( Arts &: Sciences, Patchogue), reports 
a 15.3% increase in freshmen and a 10% 
overall increase in entrants, including 
transfer students. The Division of General 
Studies' enrollment in Suffolk is 490, a 
dramatic 16%jumpoverFall '86 figures. . . 
with new entrants up 43%. Total enroll- 
ment for both divisions there is 1 ,545 - up 

According to Sister Jean Marie Amore. 
Academic Dean, a primary reason for the 
growth of the Patchogue Campus is the 
College's outstanding reputation for its 
strong academic programs - especially in 
the areas of child study special educa- 
tion, business, accounting, the sciences, 
and therapeutic recreation. . . the only 
four-year degree program of its kind on 
Long Island. 

New programs offering the B.S. in 
Nursing and the B.S. in Management of 
Human Resources have contributed to 
the expansion of the Division of General 
Studies. In addition. Dr. Thomas G. 
Travis, Dean of the Division, credits the 
development of off-campus sites, the 
registration of new certificate programs, 
and flexible scheduling as significant 
factors in this growth pattern. 

With a tuition rate of S4,500 per year, 
St. Joseph's is the least costly of all 
private colleges in the New York area. 
Generous scholarship and financial aid 
packages are available through the 
Financial Aid Office. . . which, according 
to Financial Aid Director Carol Sullivan, 
accounts for the fact that almost 87% of 
SJC's students receive some form of 
financial assistance - federal, state, or 
college funded. 

"We make every effort to make an SJC 

education affordable," said Mrs. Sullivan. 

"It is that effort and psersonal interest in 

our students which have resulted in our 

unprecedented growth."

Recently, Sharon Grosser, Manager of 
Community Support Programs for Tlie 
Grumman Corporation, awarded a grant 
of S5,000 to tfie College for the purchase 
of a graphic design computer station for 
the Art Department in Patchogue. 
Another major contributor to the project 
is the Eaton Corporation. 

Since the establishment of the Suffolk 
Campus in 1979, the student body has 
grown dramatically. Correspondingly, 
the Art Department has increased its 
offerings and its scope to try to keep pace 
with accelerated demands. (Now, more 
than twelve classes per semester are offered 
and are quickly filled to capacity. . . 
serving over 250 students per semester). 

One area of demand by art students 
majoring in child study, business, and 
therapeutic recreation is graphic design 
where students require the use of a 
specialized computer and software for 
technical illustration, layouts, and typo- 
graphy in order to produce professional 
logos, newletters, publications, and 


Sister Patricia Manning, Chairperson 
of the Art Department, is pleased that 
these grants will provide students with 
design skills for a variety of careers and 
professions, including graphic arts, teach- 
ing, business, science, public relations, 
advanced education, and communication.

President, receives grant from Sharon Grosser

New (Sites For 
General (Studies 

In order to make college courses more 
convenient for busy working adults, SJC 
has established off-campus extension sites 
throughout the New York and L.I. area. 
Thus, adults at over twenty hospitals and 
businesses are able to take courses towards 
certificates and degrees right where they 

Certificate Programs in Gerontology, 
Home Care Administration, Health 
Instruction, Health Counseling, Health 
Staff Development, Leadership & Human 
Resources Development, Management, 
and Data & Information Processing are 
among the most popular offerings. 

Most students then pursue a bachelor's 
degree by attending either of SJC's two 
campuses. There, degree programs are 
offered in the areas of Community Health, 
Health Administration, Nursing and 
Human Management Resources. 

By providing working adults with an 
opportunity to pursue studies which will 
enhance their career potential, the 
Division of General Studies continues to 
grow. Presently, it serves over 1100 
students - up a dramatic 11% over last 

Each year, more sites are opened. . . the 
most recent are located at Booth Memorial 
Medical Center in Flushing, Astoria 
General Hospital, Long Island City, 
Brunswick Hospital Center in Amityville, 
and Franklin General Hospital in Valley 
Stream. Additional sites are planned for 
Manhattan and the Bronx. 

Health care facilities, banks, insurance 
companies and other major corporations 
are suitable as new sites.

An SJC senior biolog\ major, Milagros 
Vidot, participated in a ten-week Medical 
Education Reinforcement and Enrich- 
ment Program at Tulane University 
Medical Center this summer. Among the 
sixty-four students chosen throughout 
the United States. Milagros was one of 
the five selected from New York State. 
The competition required that each 
applicant write an essay on the topic, 
"Why Do I Want To Go To Medical 
School." Letters of recommendation and 
a high grade point average were also 
required. Ms. Vidot, who knew that she 
wanted to be a doctor since the third 
grade, feels that the training she has 
received at St. Joseph's has prepared her 

well for tliis advanced summer workshop. 

High on the agenda were courses in 
biology, physiology, math review, calcu- 
lus, statistical analysis, physics, chemistry 
and analyzing data. In addition, seminars 
on current health related topics were held 
regularly and each evening, the students 
were required to complete computerized 
course reviews. 

"Millie" decided to come to SJC after 
meeting Dr. Carol Hayes, Chairperson of 
the Biology Department, at an informal 
scholarship committee meeting - she 
realized that a smaller school would suit 
her needs. Last year, Milagros participated 
in the summer medical students' program 
at the University of California at Irvine.

Eileen Mullen Named 
Admissions Director 

It has been announced that Eileen 
Mullen has been appointed Director of 
Admissions of the College's Division of 
Arts and Sciences at its Main Campus in 

Formerly Assistant Dean in the Division 
of General Studies, Ms. Mullen has taught, 
lectured and administered innovative 
educational programming at SJC since 
1979. Among her most significant ac- 
complishments are the establishment of 
nine off-campus sites for General Studies 
in hospitals and banks. 

As Director of Admissions, she plans to 
introduce a series of new recruitment 
methods which will build upon the 5% 
increase in Fall '87 freshman enrollment. 
Among these is the implementation of 
the "net working" and "linkage" pro- 
cesses to disseminate information on the 
College, its programs, and its many 
successful graduates. 

A graduate of St. Joseph's (with a 
Master's degree from Queens College) 
Ms. Mullen recently attended Harvard 
University's Summer Institute where she 
shared her creative and administrative 
skills with over 100 admissions profes- 


Model of the new library planned for the Suffolk Campus 


The Patchogue Campus is buzzing in 
anticipation of groundbreaking for the 
new library scheduled for Spring 1988. 
The well-known Long Island architec- 
tural firm of Bentel 8c Bentel has worked 
very closely with the entire college 
community - trustees, administrators, 
library personnel, faculty and students - 
to determine needs, evaluate options and 
create a number of plans which have been 
reviewed and refined. 

Final touches are being applied to both 
the interior and exterior designs. The 
building will be located on what is 
presently the track, and a beautiful grassy 
mall with a seating capacity for 300 
people will be created between the new 
facility and the existing college structure. 
Additional parking areas are planned to 
replace those which will be lost to 
construction, and lovely walkways will 
provide easy access to every part of the

Cooperative Admissions Program with SCC 

Two separate degrees and two different 
college careers are the benefits that 
students can enjoy through Suffolk Com- 
munity College's new joint admissions 
agreement with St. Joseph's College in 
Patchogue. By filing a single application 
to Suffolk Community, students may 
also be assured of admission to St. 
Joseph's upon their graduation from 

Sr. George Aquin and Robert T. 
Kreiling, President of Suffolk Community 
College, recently signed the agreement 
which will take effect for students who 
began their studies at Suffolk in the 
Spring of 1987. According to President 
Kreiling, the agreement with St. Joseph's 
is an especially attractive one because it 

allows students such complementary 
collegiate experiences. He said, "Suffolk 
Community College is a large, public 
institution which enrolls students of all 
ages. Its contrast to St. Joseph's, a small, 
private college, should provide an ex- 
ceptionally well-balanced education for 
students who take advantage of this new 
joint admissions agreement." 

Students may apply to St. Joseph's 
through the Suffolk Community College 
admissions office at the same time they 
apply to Suffolk or at any time during 
their first thirty credit hours there. Other 
benefits of the joint admissions agreement 
include eligibility for scholarships, 
priority registration and waiver of tuition 
deposit at SJC. 

The interior features three levels which 
will be visible from the main body of the 
library. . . with half levels above and 
below the entrance and primary reading 
area. Conference rooms and classrooms 
are also planned. 

The current library will be converted 
into much needed classrooms and offices. 
Up to this point, the space crunch caused 
by rapidly increasing enrollment was met 
by scheduling class hours earlier and 
later in the day. 

Dr. Anne Jordheim 
Lectures on AIDS 

Dr. Anne Jordheim, Chairperson of 
the General Studies Community Health 
Department, was invited recently by the 
University of Tromso in Norway to be a 
guest professor for two weeks. During her 
visit. Dr. Jordheim addressed primary 
physicians, medical associations, medical 
student groups, dentists and dental 
hygienists, nurses, and the university 
community in a series of workshops and 
lectures on the subject of the AIDS virus. 
An expert on the current status of AIDS 
research and development in the United 
States, Dr. Jordheim believes that she has 
"learned a lot from her students who have 
worked with AIDS patients." (Most 
students in the Community Health pro- 
gram in G.S. are health professionals.) 

Historically a health-conscious society, 
Norwegians are concerned that flourish- 
ing international travel increases the AIDS 
threat. They believe they are two years 
behind the U.S. in projxirtionate numbers 
of AIDS patients and hope that an 
informed community will reduce the risk 
of repeating our exfDeriences. 

Dr. Jordheim's lectures were tailored to 
meet the needs of public health educators 
and workers.

SJC Library Only Integrated 

The word "research" - a bone chilling 
thought for most students - is greeted 
much more enthusiastically at St. Joseph's 
College these days. 

Throughout the summer, Sister Dorothy 
Watson, Chief Librarian of the College's 
Suffolk Campus, and her staff worked 
diligently to complete the installation of 
LS/2000, a fully integrated computerized 
library system, the first college library 
system of its kind on Long Island. 

A product of OCLC, which maintains 
an international data base, LS/2000 
provides a state of the art facility which 
allows borrowers to draw upon the data 
contained in the college's collection of 
books, and audio-visual materials - in a 
matter of seconds. Four terminals will 
serve the almost 1600 students who 
returned to campus last week to find that 
"life in the library" will never be the

Martha Scheina, a scholarship student 
from Farmingville, loves the ability to 
work without the assistance of library 
staff. "You feel so independent and able 
to work in depth on your research. The 
more you search through data on the 
screen, the more possibilities you see for 
expanding your thesis and making it 
more interesting and informative." 

Sister Dorothy and Reference Librarian 
Sister Agnes Meagher are delighted with 
other operational aspects of the new 
system. It is a more efficient and effective 
method of keeping inventory and estab- 
lishing library records, thereby releasing 
staff from clerical chores and allowing 
them to perform more professional tasks. 
It reduces errors and inaccuracies and 
will assist in the selection and classifi- 
cation of 2500 books, magazines and 
other materials added annually to the 
college collection. 


Dr. Regina Weiman. innovative 
member of the Psychology Department 
and a noted lecturer on L.I., is the 
"facilitator" of the Faith and Vision 
Group of St. Mary's Parish in Eastlslip-a 
parish community based on the early 
church. . . a self-contained unit caring for 
all human needs within a small geogiaphic 
area. Made up of priests, nuns, and lay 
people, their "New Dynamics Vision of 
Church is the only group of its kind in 
the LI.S.," said Dr. Weiman. 

In addition. Dr. Weiman was the 
featured speaker at the L.I. Counselor's 
Annual C:onferencc-her topic: "Develop- 
ing A Positive Self Concept".

Pinkerton Foundation Grant of $5,000 
Funds Program for H.S. Scientists 

"Experiences in Scientific Research, "a 
free program for fiigh scfiool students, is 
being offered for tfie second year at SJC's 
Brooklyn campus. Instituted in an effort 
to stimulate young people's interest in 
careers in science and the health profes- 
sions, the program this year is being 
underwritten in part by a $5,000 grant 
from The Pinkerton Foundation. 

"There are students interested in science, 
but imaware of the variety of careers open 
in the sciences. In this program, we try to 
offer a cross-section from forensic science, 
to science education, to health -related 
careers in science," stated Sister Mary 
Maier, chairperson of the chemistry 
department and coordinator of the 

In addition to group laboratory experi- 
ments, this year's program has expanded 
to include individual research projects 
involving creative research in the areas of 
laster optics, enzyme kinetics, photo- 
chemistry, and holography. 

Twelve students are working on indivi- 
dual research projects, which Sister 
anticipates will be completed by mid- 
April. A symposium highlighting the 
students' work is scheduled for May. 
Some researchers have entered their 
projects in science fair competitions as

St. Joseph's Ciollege is participating in 
the recently established New York Police 
Cadet Corps Program. Students enroll 
for a two-year period, are paid a stipend, 
and have an opportunity for field work 
with a Community Patiol Officer. 

The cadet must take the Civil Service 
Police Exam prior to completion of the 
program. I'pon graduation from college, 
six months of further training is re(juired 
at the Police Academy. 

Last year's program enrolled 70 stu- 
dents from 25 high schools— this year, 
130 students, representing 55 schools, are 
participating. The program, which is a 
concerted effort of all three science 
departments — biology, chemistry and 
physics — to encourage students to main- 
tain their interest in the sciences and to 
enjoy the wonders and mysteries of our 
world, is obviously succeeding. Several 
students now in the program have already 
expressed their intentions of returning 
next year!

Patchogue Students Help HOPE HOUSE Fire Victims 

A fire at a home for troubled youths on 
Long Island is bringing the St. Joseph's 
Cbllege community together in Patchogue. 

Earlier this year, there was a fire at 
Hope House Ministries in Port Jefferson. 
The director of the Ministries is Father 
Francis Pizzaielli. an English teacher at 
SJC in Patchogue. The fire brought back 
painful memories for one of Father 
Pizzarelli's students, a freshman whose 
own home was destroyed by a fire last 

"I can't describe the feeling of losing 
everything," she said. But those feelings 
were eased by the outpouring of support 
her family received fiom the commrnity. 

"The teachers and students took up a 
collection and donated the money to my 
family. I remember when they presented 
me with the check. I was so moved. . . I 
cried. It gave me such a warm feeling that 
everyone cared enough to do this. I (ell 
like I had to do something in ictuiii 
Saying thank you didn't seem like 

She remembered what happened the 
day of the fire at Hope House. "We had a 
paper due. We had to write our autobio- 
graphy based on an important event that 
helped shape our lives. I wrote mine 
based on the fire. I remember going to 
class that day. I was all excited about 
handing in the paper, but Father Pizzaielli 
never showed up in class. When I found 
out why, I was shocked. I knew exactly 
what he was going through and I wanted 
to help." 

She started a fund at the C^ollege whit h 
brought in a variety of donations, includ- 
ing money, food, (lolhing. household 
items and sheets. 

In March, the Circle K Club hosted a 
benefit "Hawaiian Luau" for Hope 
House. Representatives from Cable TV's 
News 12 Long Island were on hand lo 
hel|) celebrate and report on the ex( iling 
happenings at St. Joseph's. The dance 
raised nearly $1,000. 


As SJC stands poised to enter a new era 
of growth and development, it hopes to 
expand its outreach to the areas it serves. 
Under the chairmanship of Richard C. 
Dunne, Assistant to the President of Eaton 
Corp. - AIL Di\ ision, a Pubhc Relations 
Advisory Committee was formed recently 
to help the College enhance its visibility 
and increase its input into community 

Mr. Dunne recruited a number of out- 
standing corporate leaders to fill the 
committee's ranks. They include: William 
J. Christie of Wm. J. Christie Associates; 
Thomas Doherty. President, Chairman,

History is in the making at the 
Patchogue campus as the College is in 
the midst of constructing a new $3.6 
million, 25,000 square-foot library. 

The official groundbreaking took place 
at the College on May 9 with a ceremony 
that featured guest speaker Suffolk County 
Executive Patrick Halpin, local political 
leaders, prominent business people, 
administration, faculty, students and 
friends of the College. A delicious buffet 
luncheon followed.

May. Within days, the workers had 
demolished the running track and re- 
moved the faculty parking lot. By mid- 
June, the field was leveled and cement 
trucks pulled onto the campus to begin 
pouring the foundation. 

The library, to be completed by the Fall 
1989, will accommodate 120,000 volumes 
and 300 readers. The present library will 
be converted to much needed classroom
