What Is A Vixen? 

Vixen is the name given to the fe- 
male fox of the genus Vulpes. Phys- 
ically, a vixen has a long, pointed 
nose, large, furry, triangular ears, 
and a full, bushy tail. Its red, black, 
or silver fur is among the most beau- 
tiful known. But her physical attri- 
butes are secondary to her other 
traits - speed, agility, and cunning. 

The vixen is traditionally praised in 
legends and fables for her graceful- 
ness and intelligence ....

Welcome To Villa 

The year began in the family tradition at Villa 
with the members of Student and Residence 
Councils helping to move the Freshmen in. To the 
surprise and delight of many new students and 
their families, bands of Villa girls descended on 
their loaded cars to help unpack. No matter how 
large or small the chore, the Villa movers man- 
aged to get everyone settled-in quickly. This first 
day gave both the new Freshmen and the upper 
classes a chance to get to know each other. 

A Labor Day Weekend To Remember 



B tfg " WP 


Labor Day Weekend was off to a roaring start 
with a bonfire sponsored by Student Council. 
Scorched weiners and marshmallows were the 
gourmet meal of the evening. Monday, Labor 
Day, Villa prepared for the annual front-yard 
picnic. The weather had other plans. Thanks to 
Ted "SAGA" Foessett, the day (and corn on 
the cob) was saved by moving the picnic in- 

Once Upon A Time 

... on a Saturday in September, a bus loaded 
with girls from VMC took off for a day at 
Niagara Falls, Canada. 

When they arrived, they were struck by the beauty of the 
American Falls, 

and the roaring majesty of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls 

During their time in Canada, the Villa girls bus- 
ied themselves seeing the sights. 

4 Some girls chose the easy way to get around 




jjMfeta 4 

but most chose to walk it. Of course, buying 
souvenirs was part of the fun too! 

A few of the Villa women went a little wild and almost lost 
their heads, 

while others went to great lengths to get the most 
picturesque view of Niagara Falls. 

Luckily, there was always a lovely garden to rest 
beside after their tiring ordeals. 

All too soon, the day ended. Tired and happy, the 
girls of VMC dreamt of their Canadian holiday as 
the bus brought them safely back to Erie. 

The End 

Roudin' Up The Freshman 

The Sophomores got together to lasso up the 
Freshman and herd them into the cafeteria for 
a rip roaring night of good old western enter- 
tainment. There was plenty of dancin', refresh- 
ments, cheers from the crowd, not to mention 
an eager helping hand. It was a "happy hour" 
to be remembered.

Commuters Set Up For Volleyball 

Commuter Council's project week was a five-day 
event filled with bake sales and free lunch-time ve- 
gies. But Friday was the day everyone was waiting 
for: a match-up between the commuters and the 
Villa Victors. The campus was "set" for a good 
volleyball match, and they weren't disappointed. 
The commuters got "bumped," but they were good 

Commuters Top Off Project Week 

As icing on the cake, Commuter Council ended 
its project week with a pie-eating contest. The 
"cream" of the Villa crop was on hand to 
"face" the competition. Even umpire Shirley 
Fletcher got a piece of the pie. Beth Gatesman, 
a freshmen nursing major, "took the cake" and 
the winning trophy. 

Villa Shows Spirit 

On Thursday, October 7, Villa celebrated Spirit 
Day. To cheer the Victors on for their match with 
Theil and Gannon, students wore buttons 
throughout the day announcing their support. 
That evening, between matches, Student Council 
had a contest for the student wearing the most 
Villa clothes. Luann Myers and Patty Perlinger 
were chosen as the most "spirited" students. The 
large turn out and supportive energy of the 
crowd made Spirit Day a huge success. 

Councils "Serve" Cerebral Palsy 

Why would over 30 girls spend 10 consecutive 
hours playing volleyball on a Saturday? To bene- 
fit Cerebral Palsy, of course. The poster child was 
on hand to watch the action. The day was long, 
but the rewards were many. 

Lunch With The Ghouls 

The "ghouls" of Villa Maria love to dres; 
up. That's why Halloween is such a specia 
time. Dorm rooms, class rooms, and espe 
daily the cafeteria were "haunted" by witch 
spirits, and never-before-seen creatures 
At lunch SAGA "dug up" a special treat foi 
their frightful guests and helped spread c 
little "spirit." 

An Evening With The Goblins 



That night, Residence Council threw a Hal- 
loween party in the gym for students and 
their visiting little sisters. Even more cos- 
tumed creatures were on hand (including the 
Villa Vixen) to dance the night away. Con- 
tests were held for the best costumes in four 
categories. All in all, everyone had a "devil- 
ishly" good time. 

Villa Shapes Up 


Weekends at Villa are a good time to catch up on all the things 
neglected during the week: homework, laundry, and . . . 
exercise! Friday afternoons and Sunday nights, Student Ser- 
vices provided aerobic dance classes. The fun and music gave 
real "shape" to the weekends. 

Precious Villa Moments 

1. Sometimes your teddy bear is your best 

2. It's a dog's life at Villa Maria College. 

3. Be quiet or I'll strangle you! 

4. This party is just totally, like wow! 

5. CHEESE1 . . . and pepperoni pizza! 

6. Hi! I'm a Theatre Arts major! 


Christmas is a traditional time at Villa. The holiday 
season officially begins with Christmas in Song 
and Ceremony. Members of the faculty, adminis- 
tration, student body, and the Erie community gath- 
er to listen to holiday music supplied by the College 
Chorus and to enjoy readings which express the 
holiday meanings. After the ceremony, everyone 
gathered in the cafeteria for refreshments and a 
chance to chat with friends. 

A Giving Season 

Chris Angel Week is another Villa Christmas tra- 
dition. Sponsored by Residence Council, it is a 
week-long event of mysterious packages, anony- 
mous cards, and lurking gift givers. After receiv- 
ing a small gift each night for five nights, all 
participants join in a Christmas party on Saturday 
afternoon to find out who has been sending them 
gifts. Everyone has a good time and usually winds 
up making new friends. 

It Was Like . . . Totally Awesome 

Like for sure, it was like one of the most 
tubular times. Like, it was Punk Rock Night at 
VMC. Like, all us gals just dressed in awe- 
some outfits and like, spent the whole night, 
you know, dancin' and listenin' to Doug Neville 
and his music. Like, wow, they even, you 
know, gave out records, like heel Awesome! 
But like, gag me, the night just had to end and 
we, you know, had to leave, but like, wow, it 
was a cosmic time, you know?! 

Villa Enjoys A Little Friction 

A coffeehouse at Villa gives everyone a 
chance to let their hair down, and this 
year, they were better than ever. One of 
the most memorable was when Friction 
played in the gym for almost 200 stu- 
dents. Friends from Gannon, Mercyhurst, 
and Behrend were also invited to this 
musical event. All night long (until 1), Villa 
women again proved they could get down 
and get funky. 


1. Could you repeat that please? 

2. Sugar and spice and everything punk. 

3. "D". Who took the "D"? 

4. What?! Our final is tomorrow?! 

5. You're not really going to take my picture . . . 

6. Hmmm. I wonder if he ever mentioned that in 

Commuters Make A Big Splash 

The commuters proved again they were 
good sports by sponsoring an Inner Tube 
Polo Match during their second semester 
project week. Everyone was invited to try 
their hand at this most exhausting of 
water sports. Of course, laughing your 
way in and out of inner tubes does not 
help the progress of the game (but it sure 
is fun). After the match, everyone enjoyed 
the culinary delights of Skip's Pizza. The 
evening was "all wet," but there were no 
"wet blankets" among the participants. 

You'll Love Erie 

They come by bus, by train, by plane, and by 
car. They are the college students that come to 
the Erie area to study. But there is more to Erie 
than books and term papers. Erie is the third 
largest city in Pennsylvania. Historically, it was 
from Erie that Commodore Oliver Hazard Per- 
ry launched his fleet to defeat the British in the 
Battle of Lake Erie. For recreation, Presque 
Isle State Park is the place to be summer and 
winter. Erie: what a nice place to be!

Seniors Experience Practicums 

An important part of senior year for most ma- 
jors is the time spent in practicums and intern- 
ships. Area hospitals, like Hamot Medical Cen- 
ter and Saint Vincent's Health Center, offer 
students in nursing, allied health, therapeutic 
recreation, psychology, and social work a 
chance for hands-on experience. Education 
majors are placed in private and public schools 
throughout Erie as student teachers. Other 
area facilities also sponsor intern programs. 
On-campus practicums are also available to 
some majors. The practical experience gained 
from these practicums are an invaluable part of 
a Villa education.

It All Happens Here 

The academic complex of Villa Maria Col- 
lege is made up of A'Hearn Hall (the Ad- 
ministration Building), the Academic 
Building, the Lecture Hall, the Auditor- 
ium/Gymnasium, and the Natatorium 
(Swimming Pool). Completed in 1961, the 
Academic and Administration Buildings 
were the first structures on the newly relo- 
cated Villa Maria College campus. The 
Gymnasium and Natatorium were com- 
pleted in the Fall of 1963. The newest 
building on campus, the Lecture Hall, was 
build in 1972. Together, these buildings 
form the backbone for life at Villa Maria

To The Softball

were able to obtain pictures of last

Best of Luck! 

Make A Splash 



Commuter and dorm students were pitted against 
each other in the Annual Intramural Swimming 
Meets held for six consecutive weeks in the Villa 
pool. The match-up consisted of the commuters 
vs. north dorm vs. south dorm. Events included in 
the meet were freestyle, butterfly, backstroke, 
freestyle in relay, and medley relay. The north 
dorm team were the overall winners, but all the 
swimmers were champions. 

To Make Villa Maria Dorm Life 

Villa Maria College is more 
than a small, woman's col- 
lege; it is home to almost 300 
girls living in the dorms. The 
atmosphere is friendly and re- 
laxed with just enough aca- 
demic tension to keep the 
girls on their toes. The size 
and layout of the campus 
keeps all the residents as 
members of one big family.
