The rapidly growing metropolis of 
Atlanta experienced various 
changes. The lenox area boasted 
four new buildings, but were in no 
way comparable to the architectural 
marvel of the IBM tower. Buckhead 
became the place to be, whether it 
meant living there or just having a 
good time. And with the Democratic 
Convention being held in Atlanta, 
commercial expectations were very 
evident: MARTA's airport station 
was nearly completed. Under- 
ground Atlanta's revitalization was 
in the works, and a bid for the 1 996 
Summer Olympics was submitted. 
Meanwhile, Oglethorpians took 
advantage of the various offerings of 
a "big city" environment, enabling 
their spare time to be spent. Picture 



Changes occurred all around the 
campus. The weight room left the 
pit, findinig a new home and a new 
name — The Sweat Shop . The 
weight room wasn't the only change 
seen in the student center, though; 
the cafeteria received a face lift, and 
three smaller conference rooms 
were constructed. For a while the 
front and back entrance were high- 
lighted with modern art — which 
eventually, when completed, 
became Kiosks. The most visible 
(and audible) change, though, was 
MARTA passing infront of the 
school's entrance every six minutes. 
Every new addition to Oglethorpe's 
scenery was an attempt to, in some 
way, make life that much more 
Picture Perfect. 




Student Life 

Oglethorpians could always find 
something to occupy their time. If 
studies were finished (or could be 
put off for one more night) students 
flocked to P.J. Hailey's on Thursday 
evenings — although by mid- 
October Dr. Gersch's Physical Sci- 
ence class stopped participating. 
Once or twice a month Chi Phi offe- 
red their "donation at the door" 
parties, allowing students to give to 
a good cause. Every holiday the 
OSA co-sponsored some type of 
themed party, allowing students to 
dance away their frustrations. The 
Players provided plays, the Bomb 
Shelter brought BSTV, and the 
Singers sang songs, each helping, in 
their own way, to make student life 
picture perfect.

Spring Time Fun 

The first Saturday in April dawned cold 
and gray, the lead sky threatening snow, 
sleet, rain, or a nasty combination of all 
three. Chill winds whistled through the 
doorways and around the staircase of a 
sleeping Traer Hall. This was no day for 
the annual Traer Beach Bash. As this was, 
however, the scheduled date for the 
Beach Bash, the Residence Hall Council 
and the Resident Assistants were posed 
with a dilemma. The answer; move the 
Beach Bash! 

Fortunately for everyone involved, the 
weather on Saturday April 25th could not 
have been more perfect. As the warm sun 
beat down, bikini-clad women appeared 
on the balconies and in the quad. Huge 
servings of shrimp, fresh fruit and cold 
nonalcoholic daquiries and Pina Coladas 

satisfied the hungry and the thirsty. 

As usual, there were competitions 
between floor residents in games such as 
the waterballoon-toss, a scavenger hunt 
and the laundry-cart race. 

If the shrimp and fruit did not fill up 
hungry tummies, students were served 
dinner at Traer, followed by live music 
featuring Chi Phi brother Dave Murdico. 

After dinner the clean-up began, as the 
warm sun set on a weary Traer crowd. 
Bikinis were exchanged for jeans and 
sweats and fun-seekers ventured out to 
join in Atlanta nightlife.

Nineteen Years of Service ended this particular 
graduation day with Dr. Lavonne Talley's 
advancement to Emeritus. Dr. Pattillo honored Dr. 
Talley at both the Spring and Summer Graduation. 

The graduate march, described as both "thrilling and 
intimidating," brought seniors closer and closer to- 
ward the ceremony which marked the exit of one 
phase of their lives and the entrance into 

An Unknown and 
Exciting Future 

Manning M. Pattillo, Jr. welcomed 
parents, students, faculty and guests to 
Oglethorpe's 115th Commencement on 
IVIay 17, 1987. 86 Oglethorpians recieved 
Bachelor of Arts degrees, 21 received 
Bachelor of Science degrees. There were 
25 Bachelor of Business Administration 
degrees and 1 1 Master of Arts degrees 
bestowed. A special feature of this gradu- 
ation which distinguished it from previous 
years was the naming of Dr. T. Lavon 
Talley as Professor Emeritus. Dr. Tally 
retired after nineteen years of devoted 
serviceasprofessorof education. Dr. Tally 
will be remembered fondly by the many 
people who's lives he touched. 

Special recognition was also granted to 
deserving seniors. Penni Reid recieved 
the Sally Hull Weltner Award for Scholor- 
ship, and Bret Sleight received the 
Faculty Award forScholorship. The presti- 
gious lames Edward Oglethorpe Awards 
presented to the man and woman, who 

best epitomize the Oglethorpe concept of 
academic success were bestowed upon 
Scott Soloway and Penni Reid. That's 
right, Penni Reid deservingly received not 
only one, but two awards. After all, she 
maintained a 4.0 throughout her entire 
college career. The Phi Beta Kappa Award, 
which was recently instituted during the 
1986 commencement, was given to 
Bonnie Boles for her outstanding 
academic achievements. The President's 
Leadership Prize, which was the final 
award, was given to Hank Bunnell for his 
superior leadership and involvement in a 
variety of clubs and activities, including 
his creation of the Bomb Shelter. 

Following the awards ceremony, Scott 
Soloway, president of the class of 1987, 
announced the senior class gift — a 
beautiful antique chandelier, which adds 
a touch of elegance to the Great Hall. 
Scott suggested that the chandelier 
would remind everyone of the class of

1987 since it was so bright! 

Following Scott's bit of wittisism, the 
audience enjoyed listening to the guest 
speaker, Charles S. Ackerman, President 
of Ackerman and Company. Mr. Ackerman 
emphasized varied challenges confront- 
ing people in leadership positions in 
society today. He recognized, particularly, 
how a liberal arts education can give 
tomorrow's leaders the background to 
meet varied future challenges. 

A benediction by Dr. Ken Nishimura, 
Professor of Philosophy and Chaplain of 
the University, not only marked the close 
of the ceremony, but also, reminded 
graduates that they were no longer 
students but degree-holding members of 
the 'real world." 


Contemplating the Future, Penni Reid, class 
valedictorian, Is caught deep in thought reminising 
about her college years. 


For most, the beginning of tiie sumnier was a welcome 
relief from the unusually tense period of final exams. Like 
a house on fire, students vacated the campus faster than 
you could say, "beach." For three months the words 
library, cafeteria-food and study were in back of 
everyone's mind, like 

Faded Shadows 

So where did these young, knowledgeable 
hounds go to escape the tension and stress 
that goes along with the pursuit of higher 
education? Anywhere they could; home, to 
stay with a relative in the mountains of 
Vermont, or even to ramble aimlessly 
through Europe. As long as the adventure 
took them nowhere near the looming clock- 
tower on Peachtree Road. 

For those students who did make the 
homage home, it was like taking a nostalgic 
"walk down memory lane," as all their high 
school friends who had gone away to college 
also retumed for the summer. Senior Ric 
Ford was among these ranks as he retumed 
to his home in Washington, Indiana last 
summer. "It was like 1 never left for college," 
he states. "My old basketball buddies and I 
hung out and partied like we had done in 
high school." Ric did not go home just for the 
pleasure, though. Often, he was found on 
Saturday night till the wee hours of the morn- 
ing, flipping dough at the local pizza joint, 
IVlr. Gratti's, instead of partying. 

Sophomore Tressie Roland also went 
home, to Fort Pierce, Florida, to work not one 
job, but three! "I needed the money and 
although 1 didn't have much 'play' time, at 
the end of the summer I had alot more 
money in my wallet than my friends who 
bummed around the beach. " 

Finally, for those with an insatiable thirst 

for knowledge, for those that a mere two 
semesters could not fulfill — the summer 
session kept them busy. Many of the 
students who attended the regular fall and 
spring sessions, also returned for the 
summer, — be it to make up lost credit 
hours, to obtain classes for eariy graduation, 
or to just fight off boredom. Kevin Southem, 
a senior, was among those few who stayed in 
Atlanta to attend summer classes. "My town 
(Wharton, New jersey) is so dead in the 
summer, so the only thing to do is work and 
go to frequent family outings. I'd rather take 
on the burden of an extra class for the oppor- 
tunity to live with my friends all summer." 
Kevin also took on a sales job in the local 
mall, but he somehow managed to find some 
spare time to party with his friends — and he 

It's easy to see that it didn't take the 
glamour of a two-month Alaskan cruise, or 
sun-bathing on the Rhine to entertain the 
modest student for the summer break. No 
matter how profitable or enjoyable these 
three summer months were, by mid-August 
students were desparately awaiting their 
return to school, daydreaming of the day 
when they could taste the delicious cafeteria 
food again, or, perhaps, find a cute freshman 
sitting next to them in Biology class.

When the end of the week finally arrived, students refocused their energy to play. 
Preparations for evening fun began at dusk as girls refined their make-up and tried for a 
funkier look. Guys put on their dancing shoes, sometimes unwillingly, and donned their 
drinking caps. Anticipation hoovered in the evening air, for this might be the night 


Whenever students felt the urge to ex- 
perience "Hotlanta" on the weekends 
they found plenty to do. 

The weekends began on Thursday 
night (a weekend in the English tradi- 
tion?) at P.j. Haleys. Many Petrels migra- 
ted to this Emory area night-spot for an 
evening of dance and good times. For 
many of these students, the evening 
would not have been complete without a 
stop at that mecca of midnight snacking; 
Krystai, a place well known for its service 
and speed.

popular place in Buckhead, and several

A Different World 

As the sun rose above the trees east of the men's dorms, the residence staff 
quickly finished last minute preparations for the long day ahead. Anticipation in 
the air, the wait began for the arrival of the first freshmen. Between the easy atti- 
tudes and the nervous anxieties of the incoming freshmen, "checl<-in" was a pot- 
pourri of emotional ups and downs. After all, these freshmen were entering 

Each coming for different reasons, with 
different hopes, expectations, and fears, 
all freshmen faced similar questions as 
they encountered this new way of living. 
How am I going to live with this stranger? 
Will people like me? What clubs do I want 
to join? Why did I bring so much junk and 
where am I going to put it? What are the 
easiest courses to take? And so the fresh- 
men settled into their havens away from 
the "real world" and tried to cope with 
their very new realities. Some had said 

goodbye to their parents for the first time 
with a mixture of sadness and excitement; 
sadness for leaving a place full of memo- 
ries and security, knowing that "home" 
would never be the same when they re- 
turned, and excitement in not knowing 
what the future had in store for them. The 
dorms soon became home and the stran- 
gers became family. 

The men had to learn to do laundry, and 
even some of the women were new to this 
chore. Both had the responsiblity of bud- 

geting their time and money. For most 
freshmen a checking account was a new 
thing. (They soon learned that rubber 
checks got a student in a lot of trouble.) 
To handle the extra burden of handling 
one's own finances, many students got 
jobs for the very first time — for others, 
though, it was old news. Almost everything 
that freshmen experienced their first two 
months at school was new. But after 
Thanksgiving college was an everyday

It was a day not soon to be forgotten for many new faces on the campus. 

The First Full Day 

This particular day did not consist of 
classes, but of numerous activities, in- 
formation-filled sessions, meeting new 
people, adjusting to a new way of life in 
general. And just when those participat- 
ing freshmen thought it was safe to un- 
wind back in their dormrooms, still clutte- 
red with attempts to completely relocate 
their possessions in a mere 24 hours, it 
was soon time to freshen themselves and 
dress for the annual President's recep- 

Some decided to remain in groups and 
ride over to President Pattillo's home in 
vans departing from the Student Center; 
most freshmen arrived with others await- 
ing the reception of a man they had yet to 
meet. It was a rather formal occasion, 
complete with President Manning Pattillo 
and his wife Martha greeting at the door. 
Various professors were also present 
eager to make the acquaintances of the

students who would soon be seated in 
their classrooms the following week. 

The night moved quickly, with students 
arriving and then departing soon after- 
wards. The house was constantly full, al- 
most to the point of being too crowded. 
But for a President to invite the entire 
freshman class and their parents to attend 
was very unusual. The Pattillo's welcomed 

guests all throughout the year. If it wasn't 
for the freshman reception it was for the 
fraternity and sorority rush or for the 
graduating class reception. The president 
and his wife always made it a point to so- 
cialize with the students. And that was 
one of the special aspects of the school.

For those few evenings when Oglethorpians weren't 
scholastically occupied, an original and fun alternative 
was offered. Students entered this Petrel war zone 
armed and ready to forget about studies. Every night 
was a blast at 


The Bomb Shelter, where students 
relaxed, were able to get good food, and 
be entertained by a variety of activities, 
expanded in many ways. Among the phys- 
ical improvements were new lighting, 
more video games, an original mural over 
the door and of course, more netting. A 
pool table was added, as well as a dart 
board. This enabled the Bomb Shelter to 
sponsor various amounts of tournaments. 

Movies were presented nightly, includ- 
ing several film festivals such as 
Halloween Week, Harrison Ford Night, 
Bomb of the Month bad movies, and Mid- 
night Movies ranging from Dr. Strangelove 
to Pink Floyd's The Wall. 

There were also special programming, 
among the most successful of the events 

were 40's Week, which hosted a week of 
WWII movies — comedy, drama, and 
musicals — and ended with the first 
annual USO Dance. The USO Dance featu- 
red forties' contemporary music, a 
costume and dance contest, and a live 
USO variety show — including The An- 
drew Sisters, a ventriloquist act, songs 
from South Pacific and the infamous 
Who's on First comedy routine. 

The most popular feature of the Bomb 
Shelter was BSTV. Director Hank Bunnell, 
camera in hand, rushing to get that last 
shot filmed, became a very familiar sight. 
BSTV's themes included BSTV's Summer 
Vacation, Video Kaos, Good Morning 
Oglethorpe, and BSTV's Flying Circus.

Music to Drama 

The night was clear with a slight chill in 
the air as students gathered in the Great 
Hall for the Annual Night of the Arts fes- 
tivities. It might as well have been sub- 
titled "A Trip Around the World" for it was 
that upon which those in attendance were

artist-in-residance, played a trumpet folk 
song. Next: Nacho Arrizabalaga's 
bagpipes led the group to a Spanish 

fiesta, giving a short glimpse of an un- 
familiar tradition. Through a Turkish folk- 
song, Gonca Gursoy took the audience 
through an imaginary countryside. The 
audience members were brought back to 
American reality throughout the evening 
by Chuck Truett's unnerving prose, Leah 
Hughes' humorous dramatic reading, a 
melodic duet by Patricia Hatch and Lyle 
lennings, and particularly by a "down 
home" bluegrass trio. 
There were also joumeys given by classi- 

cal musical presentations on the piano. 
Carol Duffy, Tracie Bell, and Dr. Deborah 
Woolley were all very entertaining. 

The evening was beautifully brought to 
a close with the poetry of Susan Ludvin- 
gston from Winthrop College in North 
Carolina. Her selections appropriately 
continued the theme — time, place and

Excitement built rapidly as students prepared for Halloween Weekend. All over 
campus doors were donned with orange and black, and pumpkins were giving 

Ghoulish Grins 

On Friday, the Halloween festivities 
began with Trick-or-Treat-in-Traer, 
sponsored by the Rotaract Club and fun- 
ded partly by O.S.A. Starting at two, as 
students prepared for the evening's ex- 
citement, the doors were judged and Hina 
Patel was awarded first place, with Beth 
Eckard trailing in a close second. Megan 
Grogan and Lisa Lawley, and Dawn Ellis 
and Vicki Smith were given "honorable 
mentions." As the winners picked their 
prizes, helpful Rotaract members delive- 
red candy to students waiting anxiously 
outside. their doors for the first Trick-or- 
Treaters to appear. 

Three o'clock finally arrived, and lines 
of children entered Traer jumping with 
anticipation. As they passed the first- 
floor's decorated doors, choruses of 
"ooh's" and "ah's" could be heard. Rang- 

ing from He-man and monsters to clowns 
and a bright orange Crayola, their 
costumes were both colorful and creative. 

As the aftemoon came to a close, the trick- 
or-treaters paraded off, leaving the students 
to prepare for the weekend festivities. 

Between Trick-or-Treat-in-Traer, the 
Chi Phi Halloween Costume Party held 
Friday night, the Player's production of 
NUTS, and the OSA-sponsored 
Halloween Dance, hosted by the SAE 
pledge class, students had their fill of 
Halloween fun — making the last week-

In the depths of Hearst Hall lies a place, a necessity to 
campus life. One place where students could buy any- 
thing from Almond Hershey bars to books on the 
Zodiac. Clothing, food, and emblemed dishes line the 
aisles in small but significant amounts. Even the 
outrageous gift for that person who has everything had 
its niche in the selection of paraphenalia. What kind of 
place has such a wide variety of pleasures? Oglethor- 
pians have no clever little name for this haven. They 
call it simply - 

The Bookstore 

A forum of items for sale and atmo- 
sphere, the bookstore offered the stuff 
that college life is made of. If it wasn't the 
tunes of WRAS 88.5 that lured a student 
into the commons, it was the sound of 
conversation and the ever present laugh- 
ter. One could browse at cards or posters 
or grab a quick bite to eat in the snack 
room. The aroma of freshly popped micro- 
wave popcorn was enough to draw one to 
this "down-under" alone! 

Off-campus students utilized the snack 
area for relaxing between classes and 
often that last minute cramming for a test. 
The bookstore represents to them, a 
place to touch base with college life and 
mix with on-campus students. The 

bulletin board outside the door allowed 
them to keep up with the many events 
that took place throughout the year. 

To on-campus students the bookstore 
represented more practical purposes. It 
meant anything from a job to opportunity 
for conversation with friends. Even if a 
student went to this eden to only get 
change for the laundry machines, he 
usually ended up staying longer than he 
intended, always leaving with a smile. 

Regardless of the purpose of each 
student's visit to the bookstore or length 
of visit, every encounter there proved to 
be an interesting and enjoyable one. The 
bookstore created lots of fun for

The International Night brought together the cultures 
of the world and transformed them into a moment of 
togetherness and harmony for all those who attended. 
It was a time to share and appreciate others as well as 
realize the value of one's own country. It was a gather- 
ing together of 

Many Different Worlds 

The International Night, sponsored by 
the International Club, was a delight forail 
those who attended. The various phases 
of the fun-filled evening began with a 
welcoming reception in the Talmadge 
Room, followed by a dinner in the 
Cafeteria, and concluded with entertain- 
ment from many cultures. The food, 
recipes from around the world, was eloqu- 
ently prepared by several students and 
represented countries such as France, 
Holland, Honduras, Poland and Norway. 

Decorated with flags of many countries, 
the Cafeteria was transformed into a world 
of its own. After taste-buds were 

thoroughly satisfied, the attendants en- 
joyed lively and diverse entertainment. 
International Club President, Orby 
Sondervan, welcomed the audience and 
introduced the performers. The band 
"Star Dust" performed first then turned 
the show over the faculty and student 
talents. Dr. |eff Arnett sang and played his 
guitar followed by Ignacio "Nacho" Arriza- 
balago who played the Spanish bagpipes. 
Lastly, Gonca Gursoy sang Turkish folk 
songs and danced. She enticed the audi- 
ence into clapping and singing along with 


stirring Punch. Ana Walraven prepares to serve the

The Miss Yamacraw Pageant, established in 1981, got a face-lift with a new, more 
respected, image. The contest name was appropriately changed and as the even- 
ing moved on the awaiting audience was presented with the very first 

Miss Oglethorpe 

The contestants were the largest group 
to participate during the six years the 
Miss Yamacraw Pageant was held. Propor- 
tionally, the quality of the show increased, 
as well. The girls represented various 
groups and organizations on and off 
campus and each shone with her own spe- 
cial uniqueness and flair which made sin- 
gling one out almost impossible. The 
judges first met the contestants the after- 
noon before the pageant during five- 
minute interviews with each girl. One 
judge commented on how intellectual the 
ladies were. 

Next came the formal pageant where 
girls were judged on talent and evening 
gown, as well as basic poise. The program 
was hosted by Darryl Wade, who added 
charm and humor to the long evening, and 

Anne-Marie Bowen, reigning Miss 
Yamacraw. During the talent section the 
audience members watched with interest 
as they were presented music, drama, and 
sheer entertainment. The stage came 
alive and continued to glow as each girl 
glided across with confidence and energy 
during the evening gown competition. 
Beth Eckard's sequined blue gown stood 
out as one of the more stunning gowns, 
though each one was worthy of royalty. As 
one audience member commented, 
"...when the girls came out at the end it 
was impossible to pick who would win. 
They all stood out in one way or the other 
as a potential Miss Oglethorpe." But, as 
the program came to a close and the girls 
awaited the results a hush fell over the 
auditorium and the announcements 


Leah Hughes received the first award 
and was given a plaque for being judged 
the best talent. Next, Lauri Epps and Ker- 
ensa Shoemake were presented roses 
and pronounced second and first runners- 
up as they took their places around the 
center stage spot reserved for the first 
Miss Oglethorpe... Gonca Gursoy! Gonca 
glowed as Ann-Marie crowned her and 
Darryl handed her a bouquet of roses. 
Within seconds the other contestants 
surrounded her with congratulations and 
friendship. As the excitement ended, the 
stage cleared, and as each contestant left 
she held with her special memories of ex- 
cellence, pride, and new friendships: 
each a winner in her own way.

The talent competition was the highlight of The Miss Oglethorpe Pageant. Audience 
members were able to sit back and enjoy a wonderful show. Though there was only one 
award given, each girl performed well and honored the stage with her presence; reveal- 
ing yet another part of her complex self. It was a night of - 

Many Talents 

Perhaps the most unpredictable event 
of the semester was the talent portion of 
the Miss Oglethorpe Pageant. The 
competition was tough. The talent was in- 

The award was presented to Leah 
Hughes. Leah entertained the audience 
with a dramatic reading from "Twirling," a 
satire on baton twirling. 

All of the talents were meritable. In fact, 
the award could have been given to quite 
a few of the girls without much surprise 
from the audience. Lauri Epps, second 
runner up overall, sponsored by The 

Bombshelter, sang her version of "The 
Rose" while the audience viewed photo- 
graphic slides of roses she had taken. Ker- 
ensa Shoemake, first runner up, sponso- 
red by the Women's Soccer Club, played a 
lively medly of gospel songs on the piano. 
Gonca Gursoy, crowned Miss Oglethorpe, 
sponsored by the Rotaract CLub, began 
by reciting Edgar Allen Poe's "Annabell 
Lee" and then sang a turkish song about 
love from her native country. Traci Bell, 
sponsored by the SEA, sang her rendition 
of "Your Song" by Elton John. Beth Eckard, 
Chi Omega, sang an original comic parody

with touching reality through a 
monologue from the play "Working" and 
the song "Millworker" by lames Taylor. Cat 
Little, Tri Sigma, performed a dramatic 
monologue about a young woman in em- 
otional turmoil. Michelle Rosen, Tri 
Sigma, dramatized a scene of the beauti- 
fully moving "Diary of Anne Frank." An ex- 
cerpt from "Carmen" was ably rendered 
by Marie Rosticher, French Club. Stacy 
Simpson, University Singers, gave a comic 
view of the song "My Favorite Things' 
through illustration. Lynne Slaughter, 
OCF, performed a gutsy performance of 
"Turn Back, O Man" from 'Godspell." Keri 
Wells, APO, sang about how she couldn't 
stop loving her man. Sherry Wilson

side of the character Maggie of "Cat on a

cloths, food, beer - all luxury items for the often-times broke college student. For 
those students who take the initiative to gain employnaent, however, a job can 
mean the difference between a positive and negative balance in the ol' check- 
book. In any "account..." 

$$$$ MONEY TALKS $$$$ 

For most students, going to college is a 
full-time job in itself. For some, however, 
the responsibility of attending class and 
doing homework is coupled with an off- 
campus job. Reasons behind these dual- 
roles vary from career experience to help- 
ing finance tuition costs to just having 
extra spending money. When asked about 
her job, freshman Susan Little stated, "I'm 
broke; there's Macy's; it's money!" 

The pressure created by spending 15 
hours a week in class and then 15 to 20 
hours at a job greatly reduces study time. 

Many people have found that a reduction 
in time doesn't necessarily mean a reduc- 
tion in study time. Sophomore Denice 
Sayers, who works an average of 22 hours 
weekly at Rich's commented, "It's very dif- 
ficult," Katherine Sjoblom, an employee 
of a Marietta law firm and a Psychology 
major, agreed by saying, "It takes alot of 
time for my school work." Still, others 
found the work experience beneficial. For 
example, senior Education major Donna 
Adair gained valuable "infield" training 
while employed at the Oglethorpe Meth- 

Sergeants Type Too. Patricia Hatch, a Sargeant in 
the Army Reserves, works one weekend a month and 
two weeks a year to stay active in the reserves. 
Patricia was stationed in Germany before coming to 
Oglethorpe to receive her degree in International 

odist Child Development Center. Junior, 
Dee Pickett, enjoyed the employee's dis- 
count she received at Macy's. 

Whether for practical reasons, or just to 
earn a few extra dollars, off-campus jobs 
are often a necessary part of college life. 
For those dedicated students who man- 
age to divide their time between jobs and 
school, they definitely have something to 
be proud of.

An Oglethorpe tradition, on December 4, tFie annual 

Boar's Head Ceremony 

kicked off the holiday season with food, 
entertainment, and leadership recogni- 
tion. The ceremony which took place 
united Oglethorpe with its English heri- 
tage, while recognizing the new members 
of Omicron Delta Kappa. 

Omicron Delta Kappa is a national 
honor society that recognizes college 
students who have shown outstanding 
performance and leadership in many 
areas of college life, including academics, 
athletics, media and publications, service 
and other activities. At Oglethorpe ODK is 
comprised of 15 students (15 per year) 
and many faculty and staff members. 

In previous years the initiation of new 

ODK members was held during the Boar's 
Head Ceremony and the Christmas con- 
cert. This year, while ODK still sponsored 
the Ceremony, they held initiation 
separately in order to shorten the Christ- 
mas program. ODK initiated Brian Buzzeo, 
Cindy Crawford, Andy Geeter, Scott 
Halght, Leah Hughes, lonathan lohnson, 
Frank Lawton, Rise Nachman, and Vicki 
Smith Friday, December 4th in the Great 
Hall. Dr. Daniel Schadler was also initia- 
ted from the faculty. 

Following the initiation ceremony, the 
new initiates, along with current 
members, presented the Boar's Head at 
the Christmas concert. 

Entertainment was provided by the 
Oglethorpe University Singers directed 
by Dr. Irwin Ray, the Atlanta Early Music 
consort, the Oglethorpe Recorder En- 
semble, and the Oglethorpe Brass 
Ouartet and Instrumentalists. 

Inspired by the Coat of Arms of the 
lames Oglethorpe family (depicting 
strength, courage, and vigorl, the legend 
of the Boar's Head was told by the 
Omicron Delta Kappa students. Dr. 
Victoria Weiss added to the seasonal fes- 
tivities by performing an enchanting 
Christmas reading.

Enduring the Extremes 

One doesn't need to be from the Antar- 
ctic to know what students are talking 
about when they say that they've endured 
the rigorous extremes of finals week. 
Coming as a bit of a shock after enjoying a 
brief Thanksgiving holiday, it was soon 
that time of year when Oglethorpians 
found it necessary to give up socializing 
and even sleeping to prepare papers and 
study for their exams. Every table and 
cubicle was occupied in Lowry Hall from 
sun up until longaftersun down. Forthose 
who preferred to study in groups, the 
study rooms on the second floor were 
available and often full to capacity. 
Although students may have been scatte- 
red throughout the campus, from Lupton 
to Hearst, and from the Student Center to 

the dorms, each and every one shared the 
common experience of a week full of an- 
guish and dread, anticipation and stress. 

In order to relieve some of the tension 
steadily building throughout each day — 
days in which the common courtesy of 
order and quiet were strictly enforced for 
the Oglethorpians needing solitude for 
study — the residents of Traer dorm offe- 
red their solution to the problem of "let- 
ting it all go." Now somewhat of an annual 
tradition, each night at 10 pm., the occu- 
pants of Traer were invited to enjoy one 
full minute of noise, screaming, slamming 
doors, etc. — a luxury not often apprecia- 
ted by those who have not been through 
such an experience. 

Similar to all trying experiences, finals 

week also offered an opposite assortment 
of emotions other than the negative ones 
more commonly associated with it. For all 
things must come to an end, and when the 
papers were written and the exams were 
completed, students were able to con- 
centrate their efforts on getting a good 
night's sleep and getting together with 
friends before the long holiday. It was 
then a time for celebration, a time to look 
back and realize all that had been accom- 
plished during the long semester.. .for 
some, it was filled with the pride of 
achievement, for others it was an opportu- 
nity to look forward to another chance to 
do better the following semester.

"Challenging!" That was the word 
used most when describing the life in 
the world of academia at Oglethorpe. 
There were the few professors that 
were known to teach "easier" core 
classes, but not many. Not enough to 
ever say that an Oglethorpian ever 
aced a semester. In fact, in the last 
four years only two people — Jay 
Floyde, class of 1985; Penni Reid, 
class of 1 987 — have graduated with 
a perfect grade point average. 

There wasn't really one particular 
department that stood out as the most 
challenging; although, many people 
would disagree and say that the sci- 
ence department was the hardest. But 
no one would have ever said that they 
had handed in a perfect paper to Dr. 
William Brightman, or written a 
perfect issue brief for Dr. Orme — 
both impossible. 

But even when the average Og- 
lethorpian made less than 100% in a 
class, he left the semester satisfied — 
well educated; even though his grade 
may not have been picture perfect.

Oglethorpe gained a 
reputation for high 
standards in acade- 
mics. For the past two 
years the freshman 
SAT average has been 
oven 1100. This put 
Oglethorpe in a league 
with Georgia Tech, 
Emory, Vandenbilt and 
Duke — to name a few. 
At first a few students 
expressed concern 
that the school was 
getting too many 
people that would do 
nothing except study. 
Actually, there was no 
difference in the type 
of people entering 
Oglethorpe as fresh- 
men, other than the 
SAT score. Organiza- 

tions received more 
than average amounts 
of new members, and 
more people expressed 
interest in joining a so- 
cial organization than in 
the past. 

This doesn't mean 
that Oglethorpians 
didn't take studying 
seriously. Students 
discovered various 
places to study to give a 
little variety to their 
academic life. People 
went to Denny's or the 
Bombshelter, the 
library or a Traer 
lounge, and outside on 
the scenic law/n of the 
University, or stayed in 
the confines of their 
own dorm room.

Academics were 
usually linked to what 
went on inside of the 
classroom. Yet, there 
were many opportuni- 
ties outside the class- 
room environment 
which enhanced the 
learning experience. 
These opportunities 
opened new doors for 
students by preparing 
them for the real 
world. The classroonn 
experiences coupled 

with these opportuni- 
ties created a better 
prepared and more 
well-rounded individual. 
One of these opportu- 
nities were guest 
speakers addressing 
the students. 

Lecturers exposed 
students to new ideas 
and different perspec- 
tives. Whether the 
speaker was discuss- 
ing politics and religion 
or Charles Dickens he 

gave the student in- 
sights into a new facet 
of interest. The 
lecturer not only offer- 
red the students new 
information, but also 
sometimes introduced 
a new perspective or 
view to an old idea. 
Lecturers inspired 
students to evaluate

the familiar.

The writing lab, in-

personnel by increasing 
the scope of majors 
that the peer tutors

members came from 
Political Studies, Phil-

English backgrounds. 
Because writing was 
stressed across the 
curriculum, the need 
for an instrument to 
help students with their 
writing was a necessity. 

Not only did the lab 
serve as a tutorial 
service, but it also offe- 
red further interaction 
among peers, students 
and faculty. 

Besides the benefits 
for students who used 
the writing lab, the peer 
tutors thennselves

ence majors. But one 
the reasons the accept- 
ance rate was so high 
was because the sci- 
ence department was 
so tough — any who 

could survive four years 
and do well enough on 
their MCATs was al- 
most guaranteed ac- 
ceptance into some 
medical school. 

The sciences were 
not just limited to those 
majoring or minoring in 
that specific field of 
study. If they weren't 
attempting to complete 
a B. S. , they were parti- 
cipating in the three - 
two program with 
Georgia Tech, the 

University of Florida or 

Students that com- 
pleted this program 
consistently performed 
better at the larger 
schools than predicted 
by those samie schools. 
Moreover, those who 
had completed the en- 
gineering programs did 
better than the average 
in their career pursuits.

The English language provided no 
word to adequately describe the 
people at Oglethorpe. Well, only 

The population, somewhere 
around 1,000 (and that's counting 
the maintenance staff plus visitors) 
included people from Turkey, 
Greece, Japan, China, Canada, 
Florida, California, Tennessee and, 
of course, various exits off the New 
Jersy Interstate Highway. 

There were the- jocks, the intel- 
lects, the geeks, the greeks, the anti- 
greeks, the outsiders, the insiders 
and those who couldn't really be 
classified as being associated with 
one particular clique. 

Every school was made up of 
these various groups of people. But 
it was the conglomeraton of the in- 
dividuals of Oglethorpe that, when 
put together, created the big picture 
— perfectly!

Reaching Out 

There were a few people on campus 
who really stuck out as being concerned 
with the problems of the world. Senior 
Anne Mills established a working habit of 
doing and coring for others. 

A psychology major, Anne worked two 
years in a psychiatric clinic before coming 
to school. Her love for animals also promp- 
ted her to work as an assistant to a veteri- 
narian for two years in her speciality — 
animal behavior. Anne's interest in psy- 
chology was more than surface-deep. Her 
father was a psychologist. Says Anne, "It 
must be in my blood." 

Anne made several significant political 
stands in the community. She participated 
in "The Brotherhood March" through 
Forsyth County, and was an active 

member of Amnesty International, the 
organization concerned with releasing 
political prisoners. Anne also openly ex- 
pressed her views about the University's 
administration and faculty. "They should 
be more racially balanced for -one thing, I 
think to have one token Japanese and no 
blacks is a slap in the face, especially in a 
progressive city like Atlanta." 

Anne thought that everyone should play 
some part or at least be aware of the politi- 
cal and social issues of the world. "Recent- 
ly , " she said "I saw the movie Cry Freedom, 
and it really raised my consciousness. 
Everyone should see it. Also, I think music is 
sometimes the most incredible medium for 
reaching and teaching people, especially 
young people."

Lyle Jennings, always experiencing 

Major Changes 

Change was not unusual to college 
students. L^e Jennings was certainly not 
on exception. As one of the few female 
Philosophy majors, Lyle said that choosing 
the major proved to be one of the foremost 
turning points of her life. 

A transfer from Louisiana State Univer- 
sity, Lyle said school never intrigued her 
the first year and a half. "When I first trans- 
ferred, 1 still hadn't decided on a major. 1 
just kind of discovered Philosophy. 1 took 
mtro and loved it. Now 1 'm making A's in 

When asked why she chose Philosophy, 
Lyle said "because it's all encompassing. It 
digs beneath the surface and gets to the 
heart of what life is all about." 

Lyle said that she was more committed 
to her studies, but that sometimes the full 
course load became too much and she 
had to find different ways to relieve the 

listen to music. It's a catharsis, 
allowing me to relieve the pressure and to 
experience in two or three minutes the 
things a full load doesn't leave me time for. 
It's visual." Lyle's favorite music was classi- 
cal and folk. As well as listening, Lyle en- 
joyed playing the guitar. 

"I've played since 1 was ten. It began 
rather innocently, watching my brother 
play his. I began going to music stores, 
buying tapes, songbooks, and basically 1 
taught myself." 

"My first and only time playing in fi-ont of 
an audience came just recently, at the 
Night of the Arts. 1 performed with Patricia 
Hatch. I was a fittle nervous, but it was a 
good experience." 

Lyle was also involved with a host of 
other activities in school and out. She en- 
joyed sketcfiing and writing in her journal.

Worldwide Connections; 

From the ancient streets of "La Roma" to 
the crowded camp sites in Europe to 
homey Irish pubs, Bary Carswell saw it all 
— or at least a good deal of it. 

As on exchange student to Italy, Barry 
practiced the language and experienced 
the country's vigorous social life: "the so- 
cial life was great!" he said. "Everyone 
walks. I got to meet a lot of people that 
way. Some friends and 1 camped out in 
western Europe, never staying in a hotel. 
We camped out under the stars — it was 
great. And living in Europe was living his- 
tory everyday, passing the same buildings 
that the Roman's built. Honestly, it was like 
stepping through a few centuries." 

It was this love for other countries and 

historical things that lead him to his major 
— History. "History," he said, "all history, 
makes me feel connected with things I 
going on outside myself." His international 
background also prompted him to join the 
International Club, of which he served as 
treasurer for two years. "I wanted to meet 
other exchange students because there is 
always a lot to say just because of the 
mood another country gives you." 

Barry liked the feeling of community the 
club encouraged. "It promotes together- 
ness. I feel a coherence in my life from 
being around the same group of people.' 

So, by way of history, books, planes, and 
imagination, Barry Carswell found a con- 
necting flight to the rest of the world.

Rise Nachman, always 

Acting It Up 

Rise was definitely one yoimg woman 
who demonstrated her ability to succeed. 
With a long history of achievements behind 
her, she had more than armed herself with 
the skills it would take to develop a career 
in a moving society. 

As a student, she was outstanding, hold- 
ing positions in four honorary fraternities 
— Sigma Tau Delta (English), Phi Alpha 
Theta (History), Alpha Psi Omega 
(Dramatic) and Omicron Delta Kappa 
(Leadership). Also among her honors was 
the induction into Who's Who. 

Rise's major accomplishment was 
drama. She had a major role in almost 
every play that she acted in: "The Elephant 
Man,' "Vanities," 'Nuts," "The Taming of 
the Shrew." 

"1 began acting in junior high school. 
Acting is an outlet. It gives me a much nee- 
ded break from school and studies." One 
of the ironic things Rise said was that in 
high school she always played the nice 
girls. In fact, she acted in "Vanities" in high 
school, but she played the part Leah 

Hughes did! '1 woiold have never been cast 
as Mary in "Vanities" in high school. In fact, 
many of my friends back home were i:| 
shocked that 1 played her here at 
Oglethorpe." It seemed that Rise had just 
the opposite problem in college. "1 would 
have never cast Rise in any other part than 
that of Mary." said Johnny White, a good 
friend of Rise's, and fellow actor. He con- 
tinued, "1 think it would be fascinating to 
see her play Joanne. It would really give i 
everyone an opportunity to see how talen- 
ted she really is." 

With her combined skills in writing and 
speaking. Rise planed to go into some form 
of communications. The summer between 
her junior and senior year she worked as a 
reporter for a local television news 
program in her hometown of NashviEe. The 
spring semester of her senior year Rise 
worked as an intern for CNN. 

When asked to whom she was most 
grateful. Rise immediately responded "My 
parents. They've done a lot for me, en- 
couraged me and supported me."

Michael Galyean, always 

Mr. Versatility 

Who was Southern, majoring in English, 
putdoorsy, poetic, and most often found in 
'a pair of jockey shorts? 
■ Why, it was N4ichael Galyean, of course 
— Enlish major, poet, past Lord 
Oglethorpe, and athlete from Clinton, Mis- 

Michael's many talents made him hard 
to classify. But that seemed to be the way 
he wanted it. "1 hate cliques and putting 
labels on people. After all, people are just 
people. Why take pains to separate 

Michael said that part of this less critical, 
jnprejudiced view of people was a result 
jf his "growing more mature," a process 
le claimed was helped by the two years he 
ook off from school to do active duty in the 
vlarines. "1 went for a lot of reasons. My 
3ad was a Marine and it seemed exciting. 
Wso, I'm very independent. 1 wanted to do 
hings on my own, like help my parents pay 

for my education." 

"It was tough coming back after two 
years, being behind the classmates I came 
in with. But for the most part, my second 
time around proved to be the most im- 
portant. For one, I declared English as my 
major. Literature opened me up to the 
idea that there was more to life and edu- 
cation than learning facts. There's thinking 
about things, and trying your best to 
apprehend the non-apprehendable." 

Michael produced liis own literature. He 
had several poems published in "The 

"I've been writing poetry since the el- 
eventh grade. Basically, 1 just write about 
things going on in my life and things in their 
association with other aspects of the world. 
Poetry is a vehicle. If it takes you 
somewhere, then it's done something of 
value — if it hasn't, then it isn't poetry." 

From a family, as he said, "of Engish 

teachers," Michael would like to teach 
after he graduates. "I'm currently looking 
into a teaching job in Japan. I'd also like to 
teach kids in the U.S., or teach American 
children abroad for the Department of 

Besides his intellectual pursuits, Michael 
was also very active physically. "I like being 
outside much more than being indoors, 
either jogging, hunting, fishing, or working 
out." A vegetarian, he was also very 
health- conscious, and crazy about soc- 
cer. "Hove soccer, it's very important to me. 
I've been playing since elementary 

When asked what he would like people 
to remember most about him, he replied: 
"That I wasn't just a dumb jock." And 
Michael wasn't. His multi-faceted lifestyle 
will be remembered for various other

Kathleen McDermott, usually referred to as 

Miss Responsibility 

Senior Kathleen McDermott stayed on 
the go. She participated in several 
progrmas and organizations, and had 
more than proven herself as an all-around 
student. Some of her achievements inclu- 
ded being a two year member of Omicron 
Delta Kappa and Who's Who Among 
American Universities and Colleges. 

She expounded on some of the sources 
of her learning experiences, "My studies 
ore important, and they've contributed a 
lot, but I've learned so much from being in 
various organizations, like Tri-Sigma." 
Leen, as many of her close friends call her, 
participated in many extra-curricular 
activities, including the yearbook and the 

Kathleen also held many jobs outside of 
school. She was a vmting intern at General 
Electric, and held a position at a local 

Atlanta law firm. "Working has given me 
responsibilities that 1 hope will make my 
adjustment to the real world easier. Also, 
as a Political Studies major, it's good ex- 

"I've also gained a lot of responsibility in 
being a part of the Greek system — help- 
ing start Tri-Sigma, being President and 
then moving on to Panhellenic President. 
And after experiencing rush a few times, 
job interviews seem a breeze!" 

"After graduation I'd like to take a break 
from school for a year, maybe travel a little, 
and then go to law school." 

Kathleen said that college has been the 
best years of her life, and she owes much of 
her happiness to "my ftlends, my sorority 
sisters, and the brothers of Sigma Alpha

As the months went by, and graduation day grew near, so did the summer. And with 
the end of the summer came the end of Manning M. PattiUo 's term as president. But, 
Dr. PattiUo, his wife Martha, and his accomplishments are 

Not Soon To Be Forgotten 

Typing his letter of resignation was the 
lordest letter I have ever typed for him," 
jighed Mrs. Betty Wetland, Dr. Manning 
'cttillo's secretary of two and a half years. 
^. Weiland went on to tell of her great 
■espect for this charismatic 13th President 
3f Oglethorpe, recalling that Dr. Pattillo's 
vriting was always concise, deliberate, 
md to the point. This inherent quality of his 
vriting was carried over to his personality 
is well. Mrs. Weiland explained that this 
vQS reflected when she spoke to President 
attillo's grandson, who firmly introduced 
limself by the name that his grandfather 
:cills him — Robert; not "Rob" — because, 

.ast Minute Decorations, Dr. and Mrs. PattiUo add 
1 few more bulbs to their tree before the guests arrive 
3r their annual faculty/staff Chnstmas party. 

as Robert put it, "My grandfather does not 
like abbreviations." 

Dr. Pattillo's concise and deliberative 
nature was only part of a whole host of 
admirable qualities that had made him 
such an outstanding President for thirteen 
years. Students and faculty alike had used 
phrases in describing him such as "earnest 
and genuine," "consciously deliberative," 
and "able to enjoy casual student activities 
at one moment and communicate formally 
with distinguished scholars the next." 

Long after August 1, 1988 (Dr. Pattillo's 
retiring dote) these qualities will still be 

Dr. PattiUo and his wife, Martha, plan to 
remain in Atlanta and continue their active 
involvement in community affairs. Dr. 

Pattillo serves on the boards of trustees at 
two other colleges and expects to devote a 
substantial amount of time to the affairs of 
those institutions. He and Martha also 
hope to travel more often than their busy 
schedules have allowed in the past. 

Leading Oglethorpe into the front ranks 
of colleges in the South was just one of the 
many accomplishments Dr. Pattillo hod 
achieved m his lifetime. Yet many other 
honors prior to his presidency, which 
began in 1975, deserve recognition. He 
received a B.A. ft-om the University of the 
South, Sewanee,- completed graduate 
studies at the University of California, 

(continued on page 82)

the newly initiated members of Omicron Delta Kappa 
to Hearst Hall to watch the event.

Berkley, and holds a Ph.D. from the Univer- 
sity of Chicago. In addition, he has been 
acknowledged with numerous honorary 
degrees from many other colleges. With 
this in mind, it is plausible that President 
Pattillo has had ample opportunities to 
develop distinctive opinions about educa- 
tion, particularly a liberal arts education. 
He praises the kind of stimulating, open- 
ended education that Oglethorpe offers. 
In fact, President Pattillo considers his most 
valued accomplishment at Oglethorpe to 
be the rising of the academic aptitude of 
the students and faculty. 

While it is discomforting that such a well- 
rounded President as Dr. Pattillo will be 
retiring, it is reassuring to know that he and

Martha will be enjoying a well-deserved 
break. Perhaps they will even have oppor- 
tunities to spend more time with their 
daughter and two sons. But m regards to 
his thoughts for the future of our institution. 
Dr. Pattillo optimistically stated, "I know 
that the years ahead will be a period of 
great achievement for the University." He 
was also quick to remind everyone that his 
last year could hardly be considered as 
completed already and he looks forward 
to working with both the students and 
faculty during the time remaining to make 
this "the best year yet." 

We, as students of Oglethorpe, most 
typically attend the University for only four 
years. During this time, it is not uncommon 

for us to accumulate a countless array of: 
fond memories, many treasured friend- 
ships, and the knowledge to adopt newi 
perspectives, or at the very least, to 
readjust our old ways of seeing reality. 
Needless to say, we gain a great deal dur- 
ing our four years at Oglethorpe. 
President Pattillo summed up his ex-( 
periences here quite well and in a way that 
all of us can vividly understand: he said 
that he will have been here for thirteen! 
years — "that's more than three times the 
exposure" to these enlightening 
characteristics and people of old OU

In 1984, Lane Anderson became a full 
time staff member of tfie University, replac- 
ing Dr. Victoria Weiss as Director of 
Drama. His first production with the Uni- 
versity was William Shakespeare's Taming 
of the Shrew. Mr. Anderson received his 
undergraduate degree at Berry College 
and moved on to the National Shakesp- 
eare Conservatory in New York. 

After assuming his position with Ogleth- 
orpe he began to actualize a long time 
dream — creating a Shakespeare theatre 
company. With college friend Richard 
Gamer, and a mutual business acquaint- 
ance Robert Watson, Mr. Anderson began 
to organize what is now called The Geo- 
rgia Shakespeare Festival. It took almost 
two years to organize the festival, making 
their dream a reality. 

During the summer of 1986, the festival 
produced The Taming of the Shrew and 
King Lear. "I guess you can say we chose 
Shrew for the public, because it is a well 
known production. Lear on the other hand 
was chosen for the cntics. We knew they 

would take us more seriously if we tackled 
Lear, it's not the easiest play to make a 
success out of." told Anderson 

Added Gamer, "We could have prod- 
uced another 'guarenteed' success like 
Shrew, but we wanted people to know we 
were serious." 

The Georgia Shakespeare Festival did 
very well their inaugural season. So well, in 
fact, it was obvious they would be around 
for a while. 

The summer of 1987 was booked with 
Romeo and Juliet and Much Ado about 

What about the summer of 1988? "Well. 
we've decided to have 'a season for all 
seasons' producing A Mid-summer's Night 
Dream and A Winter's Tale. This year, 
though, Lane Davies (star of television's 
Santa Barbara, and the GSF's biggest 
box office draw) won't be acting in either 
of the plays. He'll be directing Mid- 
summer! He's directed many other prod- 
uctions, but this is his first in the south."

Growing Up at Oglethorpe enabled David Taylor 
to expenence many things which most people don't. 
David and Mom. Dr. Linda Taylor, spend the evening 
at the OSA's Welcome Back Luau, 


And Baby Makes Three, Dr. Phil Neujahr and Dr. 
Victoria Weiss with baby Alison at the Boar's Head 
Ceremony Watching BSTV. Marshal Nason and 
son en]oy BSTV in the Bombshelter. 

For children of faculty and staff members of the University, being at Oglethorpe was 

A Fact of Life 

There were many students who claimed 
be Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine 
3rats. Growing up under those circum- 
jtonces made for a very unusual life. But 
Dne hardly hears someone call himself a 
Jniversity Brat. But on campus there were 
nany children grovnng up. 

Probably the most recognized was 
David Taylor. David was bom m 1977. At 
hat time. Dr. Linda Taylor was an Assistant 
^rofessor of English with only four semes- 
:ers behind her. 

"It has definitely been an experience," 
says Dr. Taylor. ."1 remember teaching a 
:lass with him in my arms; feeding him his 
Dottle at faculty meetings. He's become 
quite involved in campus life over the 
^ears. A lot of the students have gotten to 
mow him. In class they've made paper 
planes for him; and snickered with him, 
Awhile he's making faces behind my back." 

If not in Hearst Hall waiting for his mom, 
le was on the tennis courts with Dr. William 
Brightmcin or Coach Phil Ritchie. (David's 

tennis skills earned him a second place 
rating in the Georgia State Ten and Under 
Boy's Championship.) "He participates in 
a lot of outside activities: soccer and swim- 
ming, as well as tennis. I've appreciated 
being able to have him here. 1 think this in- 
formal atmosphere is ideal for the working 
mother. " 

The informal atmosphere proved to still 
be very convenient for working parents. Dr. 
Victoria Weiss and Dr. Phillip Neujahr testi- 
fied to that. 

Dr. Weiss said that raising a child m a 
university was still difficult, though. "As 
Professor and mother I have two full-time 
jobs. It's been worth it though... all to have 
you monkey, monkey!" she says, tickling 
her daughter Alison, who had been roam- 
ing around her mother's office, squealing 
v«th delight. 

The office was stuffed with professor's 
books, and baby's toys. Suddenly, mom 
grabs a book from off the floor and begins 
to read it to Alison. "Spots... all aboard 

shouts... vroom, vroom..Oh, funny things 
she's done?" asks Dr. Weiss looking up 
from the book. "Well one time she walked 
into Dr. Thomas's class." 

Student Jennifer Amerson certainly 
knows what it's like to grow up on campus. 
Her father. Dr. Malcolm Amerson has been 
at Olgethorpe for nearly two decades. She 
admits though, that he didn't put her 
under pressure to go to school here, "He 
left the decision up to me." 

Jennifer even took a class from her 
father! Dr. Amerson felt it was a beautiful 
experience. "But I felt I had to work twice 
as hard. I'd recommend it to anybody 
though. It was challenging." 

Jennifer agrees: "It was difficult, at first, 
but 1 got used to thinking of him as a pro- 
fessor rather than my father. I never felt any 
different, except when my father would tell 
one of his stupid jokes and everyone would 
look at me!" 




Carolyn Proper, Assistant to the Director of Financial 
Aid, was a full time student, but took tfie job with the 
school to qualify her for the free education. 

Marilyn Memfield. Accounts Payable/Payroll Super- 
visor, should finish up her degree within the next few 
semesters- Although working full time takes up o lot of 
time, Marilyn says its worth the benefits. 

Employees of the school receive 

A Free Education 

There were many opportunities for 
students to receive some kind of financial 
assistance with their tuition bill. And with 
the average rise in tuition being ten per- 
cent every year, students were always 
looking for a way to off- set the cost of their 
education. Some did it by scholarships, 
others by governmental programs. But for 
a few students, they took a full time job with 
the University in order to receive the ben- 
efit of free tuition! 

Carolyn Proper gave up her scholarship 
and her status as a full-time student to 
have the time to dedicate to a full-time job. 
But in doing so she was able to take night 

courses, working towards a degree and 
earn a "real" salary. 

The problem was that there were't too 
many positions available on campus that 
students without a degree were qualified 
to get. 

On the other side of the spectrum were 
employees of the school who were return- 
ing students, some who already had 
children and a life out of school but felt it 
was useful to continue their education. 

Manlyn Merrifield worked in the Busi- 
ness Office in the basement of Lupton Hall. 
Marilyn went to college right after high 
school, but never completed a degree be- 

cause of her marriage and the birth of hei 
children. Marilyn's youngest daughter i: 
now attending high school, and Marilyn Is 
finishing her requirements for a degree 
One of the main reasons she worked a 
Oglethorpe was to attend a quality institu- 
tion vflthout the burden of the high costs.

"I grew up here," replied Registrar and 
one time student Paul Hudson. "1 used to 
live in the neighborhood and I used to 
listen to the University bells chime while 
playing football with my friends." 

"I was what you would call a flower child. 
That's when the school was more socially 
conscious. It's Idnda weird because now I 
sometimes hang out with my old professors, 
like Leo Bilancio, who led me in to working 

Recent graduates Naomi Hamby and 
Hank Bunnell also have begun their 
careers at their alma mater. "It's totally dif- 
ferent from going to school." says Naomi. 
"There s a lot more responsibility of course, 
than there was in school, I don't feel like I'm 
a part of the student body anymore. 1 in- 
teract with them in different situations 
now." As a counselor in Admissions, Naomi 
has her own office, and she gets to travel. "I 
Hke it because I get to meet so many dif- 
ferent kinds of people. I love people." 

Hank Bunnell works in the Community 
Life office m the student center. Hank is 
also in charge of the Bomb Shelter, which 
he founded last year. He is also director of 
the famed BSTV. "It's fun because, though I 
have a job, and am making money, 1 feel 
as though 1 never left." 

Library Assistant Ronrae Few graduated in 1975. With 
increased budget allocated to the library. Ronnie spent m

3y the last few weeks of my tnp I basically memorized how 
jmg it would take me to go any major European city from 
ponce — my fiome base If jor--some reason my memory 
liled me. all tfiat was needed was a quick glance at my 
ell-worn Eurraif guide. Here I'm cautiously informing my 
Jlow travelers that we only have nine more hours til Flor- 

3elieve that 1 shall never seee anything that compares to the 
eauty of the Swiss Alps Saying that these mountains are 
reath-taking is a double meaning: at 4000 meters, breath- 
iig was a challenge in itself! 

As port of her International Studies major 
Jennifer Gamblin spent the entire fall semes- 
ter studying abroad. She studied through a 
program with the American Institute for For- 
eign Studies in an International Business 
School in Saint Gallen, Switzerland. 

Preparing for her stay in the German 
speaking part of Switzerland, Jennifer took 
advantage of the cross-registration pro- 
gram by taking German classes at Emory 
University. While at Emory, Jennifer learned 
of an intense German language program 
offerred in Austna; "Thus, I sketched out an 
eight month program in Europe, rather 
than just the five." 

Realizing the financial burden of the entire 
trip, Jennifer applied for vanous scholarships 
offerred to study abroad, and received one. 

"My typical day consisted of three hours 
in the classroom, studying German, and 
then sunbathing on the banks of the 
Danube River or in one of the various parks 
— and no, they don't wear tops! ' 

"On roiney days I'd go to coffee shops to 
study or visit museums and churches — of 
which 'Vienna had many." 

"No day was complete, though, without 
a stop at a wine cellar for a few hours, and 
then back home to study. 

'Vienna offerred concerts, plays and op- 
eras nightly, enabling me to attend some of 
the best perfomances in the world!" 

After spending the summer m this mten- 
sive study program, Jennifer spent a month 
backpacking around Europe — alone. "1 
was a bit nervous at first, but I learned that 
it was very easy to meet fellow Americans, 
so I was very rarely alone." 

In September Jennifer arrived in Saint 
Gallen, Switzerland, where she met her 
host-family and the nine other students en- 
rolled in the program. "My classmates were 
fi-om all over the United States; California, 
D.C., New York, and a fellow Atlantan." 

Every weekend, from Septemiber through 
December, Jennifer travelled through 
Europe on the Eurrail. 

"Looking back on the entire experience, I 
find it difficult to pinpoint exactly which 
aspect I would say was my favorite: the 
filends I made, the places 1 visited, or the 
things 1 learned — not only fi~om school, but 
also from the various experiences I en- 
countered. It was definitely an enlightening 
experience, a maturing experience. It is one 
that 1 think everyone should try to take 
advantage of before they begin life in the 
'real' worid." 



Many of my most memorable experiences took place aboard 
'a train — probably because much of my time was spent on 
them! I'll never forget the night a friend and I spent locked in 
the mail car on our way to Pans At least we could finally say I 
got mail todayl' For once, we hod all the letters we could 

"Though I did not have the opportunity to ski as often c 
would hove liked. 1 at least had the chance to get a tast< 
this truly Swiss sport- As with most anything else, the Sv 
take skiing very seriously and never bother with the 'sm 
hills Much to my surprise (and fear!) my requested 1 
ginners' slope surfaced as nothing less than a full-fledc 

'Monte Carlo is the place to be any time of the year' Thisi 
just a short day trip on my way down to Spain Yes - 
considered staying permanently!'

The Bombshelter was a place where anyone could 

get away from it all. Located on the bottom floor of 

the student center, just minutes from any dorm room, 

this haven was, to every student 

Easy Access 

Whether it was to watch an episode of 
BSTV, experience one of the live attrac- 
tions offerred, play video games, or just 
take a break from studying, students 
flocked to the Bombshelter every night of 
the week. 

With the drinking age being at twenty- 
one, students found it difficult to experi- 
ence Hotlanta due to the fact that less than 
twenty percent of the population was 
"Legal." Most of the bars in Atlanta 
wouldn't allow anyone under twenty-one 
in, even if they just wanted to dance. And 

the establishments that allowed "minors" ir 
to dance were usually teen centers. Need- 
less to say, Oglethorpians weren't ven 
comfortable going to a place that sixteen 
year old high school students were hang- 
ing around. 

This was one of the factors that lead tc 
the success of the Bombshelter. Every nigh' 
there was some type of entertainment 
Various movies took up most of the sche- 
dule. The most popular in attendance 
being Platoon.

Oglethorpians would have done 

Anything for Money! 

Oglethorpians were inundated with fun- 
draisers. Organizations from every aspect 
of campus life tried to raise money in all 
sorts of ways. The women's soccer team 
raised money for uniforms by selling raffel 
tickets, Amnesty International raised 

money to send Christmas cards to political 
prisoners, SAE sponsored pictures with a 
Dutch Saint Nick during the Christmas 
Dance, and for Valentine's Day Tn Sigma 
sold balloons. Said Sigma Sister Jennifer 
O'Brien "The fundraiser went surprisingly 

well, and I never want to see anothr bal- 
loon in my life!" 

One of the most memorable fundraisers 
was Chi Phi's "Kiss the Bull Dog Contest.' 
Every Greek president had a collection 
cup set up on the table outside the cafet- 
eria, the one whose cup had the most 
money had to kiss the bulldog. Chi Omega 
president Liz Morey won the honors, and 
kissed the dog in the cafeteria. 

One of the more popular, and suc- 
cessful fundraisers was the French Club's 
food sales m Hearst Hall. People from all 
aspects of campus life purchased the var- 
ious desserts sold by Madame Bennett and 
French Club members.

G.I. Smythe 

Inspired by more than the "be all that 
you can be" commercials on television, 
Smythe Duval decided to join the Army 
after graduating from high school. "I dec- 
ided to join in the June after graduation to 
help me through college. The $20,100 was 
the determining factor." 

When joining, Smythe ■wanted to be a 
Pershing Electronics Specialist (in flight 
missle repairman) "but at the physical 1 
found out that 1 was color blind. My other 
choices were Infantry, Artillary, Sanitation 
Engineer, among others. 1 decided on the 
Military Police." 

As an M.P. Smythe did law enforcement, 
munitions security, counter-terrorist oper- 
ations, wargames, etc. He also pushed 

mops, scrubbed latrines, suffered many in- 
spections, and cheerfully did the most 
"stupid, mundane task that only the Army 
could think of. ° 

Smythe, during his second semester, 
began participating in the co-op program 
with IBM. He came to Oglethorpe after 
attending Georgia State University for two 
quarters, discovering that the commuter 
system was not his style, ffis experiences with 
the Army took him all over Europed: West 
Germany, France, Belgium, Holland and 
England. While at Oglethorpe, Smythe dis- 
covered that Senior Patncia Hatch was stati- 
oned in Germany the same time as he. But

know some of the some people.

Writing Receipts to students when they sign over their 
work study checks was just one of the responsiblities of 
a work study student in the Business Office 

Filing and alphabetizing the SAT scores of new app-

Work less Study 

"I like it because it's a way of meeting 
people," remarked Michell Rosen, work- 
study assistant in the Drama Department. 
"I work behind the scenes, and all around. 
1 do odd jobs, but the good thing is that I 
have learned alot about technical and 
other aspects of drama." 

Work-study, the program in which 
students work while studying at school to 
pay off a portion of their tuition, was viewed 
in difierent ways by different people. 

For some students there were many 
advantages. "1 like the convenience of 
having the extra income and not having to 

work off campus. " said dormitory resident 
Kym Ford. 

Work-study students also developed 
close relationships with their employers 
and other co-workers. Said LaDonna 
Barros, an employee of the University 
Communications Center, "I love my boss. 
She's very understanding and friendly. 
We're like one big happy family. Once, our 
boss even invited us all over for dinner at 
her house one Sunday." 

"There's never a dull moment," decla- 
red Michael Galyean of his job as night 
watchman in the Bomb Shelter."

Brothers and Sisters 

Many students did it. They made the big 
preak. They left home for college. They left 
ihe chaos of domestic life behind, and 
began a new life far, for, away from 
turfews, and household chores, and par- 
ents, and... brothers and sisters! Or so they 
;^4ost students who go away to college 

do not like to be reminded of home. But for 
those who had brothers or sisters going to 
school with them, there was no choice. 

Feelings about attending the same 
school as a brother or sister ranged from 
excited to nonchalant. As Junior Chnstme 
Merman said of fellow student and sister, 
Stephanie Merman, "I'm glad she came. 
Now I've got my best fnend with me. We've 
always been close, and we still are. 'We live 
only two doors down from each other in the 
same dorm. And we share a plethora of 
activities, which includes the Poor Girls." 

Brothers Jim and Hoist Beall admit that 
they don't spend a lot of time together 
although they are m the same fraternity. 
When asked what he admired most about 
fiis big brother, Jim jokingly replied, "He 
has a car." And, although big brother 

The Mermans. Christine and Stephanie, only one 
academic year apart, enjoy the nice fall weather. 

Hoist described his treatment of Jim as 
"How To Avoid Your Younger Brother At 
School," the two were seen freguently 
enough, walking and talking with each 

Freshman Jill James is pretty matter-of- 
fact about her relationship v^th her older 
brother, Tom: "He's not the reason I'm 
here. 1 came because 1 liked the school, 
and because 1 received a scholarship. 
Also, 1 didn't think it would be fair to him to 
come here. We eat lunch and dinner to- 
gether everyday. But other than that, we 
really don't see each other much. 1 knew a 
lot of people here, before I came, so when 1 
got here 1 expected to be known as "Tom's 
sister." But it wasn't so bad. I'm in Tri- 
Sigma and 1 am an SAE little sister, so 
people know me for 'me' now."

Center, Tom and III! lames la Senior and Freshman,

Freshman Class President 

Amanda Paetz has enjoyed her 
reshmon year. She was attracted by the 
ize and the academics of the University. 
)he liked the feeling of community and the 
)pportunity she has had to meet a wide 
oriety of people. 

Voted freshman class president, 


Amanda had to juggle her studies with her 
duties in OSA. In addition, she was 
involved in OCF, Amnesty International, 
and the English Club. Even with all her 
responsibilities, Amanda managed to 
make Freshman's Dean's List for first 
semester. She plans to major in English 
and minor in philosophy. 

Described by her friends as easy-going 
and thoughtful, Amanda has had a lot of 
experience developing her diplomatic 
skills. Amanda's father is a doctor in the Air 
Force, and the family has lived in many 
different parts of the world. Amanda was 
bom m San Antonio. Texas. From there the

Arizona, and Florida, where they now 

Amanda ascnbes her successes in life to 
her parents, whom she said instilled m her, 
"a strong sense of value." When asked to 
describe her freshman year in one word, 
she responded with, "diverse,!" an adjec- 
tive that could describe her whole perso- 
nality and background as well.

Even with the administration 
stressing scholastics above and 
beyond athletics, the athletic 
program offered a nice variety of 
varsity as well as intramural sports 
for those interested in participating. 
If there was a lack of some sport 
being offered students could always 
participate on a club team. The 
Lady Petrels Soccer Team made 
their debut as an official "unoffi- 
cial" representative of Oglethorpe, 
competing as a ''club" team against 
various other club teams and some 
times sparing with other colleges. 
With hopes of future recognition 
from the administration and athletic 
department the "poor girls" spent 
countless hours practicing, hoping 
to appear, in every way, picture

Fun in the Sun 

When Oglethorpians 
came back from Spring 
Break there were many 
things to look forward to. 
The annual Beach Bash, 
the Player's Spring 
production, and of course 
the Intramural Softball 

Starting the first week 
back from the break, 
students got their teams 
together to practice for the 
fun-flUed weeks of softball. 

AKI — Mary Howard, Charis

Jaffie. Poor Boys — Rich Hense, 

This particular season was 
marked by a very competit- 
ive roster. The Master- 
batters, GDI/KA, Poor 
Boys and SAWBs were 
considered top gun, but 
GDI swept the regular sea- 
son with an unbeaten 
record. In the tournament 
though, the Masterbatters 
came through as an un- 
beaten team, taking the 
title of campions for the 
third year in a row.

New Freshman Talent 
Drove the Petrels 

Up In Defense 

The soccer season was 
marked with exuberant talent 
and continuous im- 
provements. On the offense 
there was a good number of 
goals scored and a lot of near 
misses accompanied with 
good execution of the one- 
two pass and excellent ball 
control. The defense was 
more aggressive allowing 
little penetration by the 
opposition; no more than 2 
goals were scored by 
opponents in 11 out of 17 
games. The Petrels accom- 
plished 7 wins (4 shut-outs), 
lost 7, and tied 3. 

On the field, after the 
whistle blew, the Petrels 
usually played a 4-3-3 con- 
figuration. The goal-keepers, 
Mike Galyean or Karl 
Hansen(124 saves), directed 
the defense from behind and 
saved attempted goals using 
their acrobatic skills coupled 
with the willingness to extend 
themselves into a dangerous 

Henry Broitman, Bruce 
Grain, Eric Hartman, and 
others took care of the 
defense. 'Wait a minute, the 
opposition has the ball and 
they're inside the eighteen. 
There's the shot. Out of 

nowhere comes Bruce and 
heads the ball back into the 
field. No goal. Petrel's posses- 
sion.' Forward/Mid-fielder 
Jay Tate (4 goals) created 
open spaces and isolated him- 
self on the wing thanks to his 
speed. Mid-fielder Jeff Amon 
stunned the opposition by his 
dribbling skills. Up front, 
Walter Schell, an exceptional 
shot came out of the season 
with 5 goals and 5 assists. On 
the sidelines Dr. Pattillo 
cheered on as he shaked the 
official Petrel's noisemaker, 
the rattling milk bottle. Peter 
Conrady (12 goals and 6 
assists) scored in 9 of 16 
games that he played. You 
can always rely on Kurt when 
the team is down a few. Kurt 
had 2 of the 3 goals in the 
Millsaps game, even though 
they lost that one. 

Coach Bucky Reynolds 
rapped up a good season even 
though they missed the play- 
offs by a just a few points. 
Way to go. Petrels! 


Goal Keeper Karl Hansen

ball nearly to the other keeper's

also a member of the team.

also managed to beat the Pooi Bovs 1 
team to move on to the Champion

teammate Mara Delaney follows her 
and Poor Girl Heidi Dawson tries to

the AKI team scored twice, the Poor 
Girls beat them in the final game of 
the tournament 18-14. 

Scanning the Field, Traci Johnston 
— Chi Omega — spots someone to 
pass the ball to during the game 
against the Poor Girls in the Tourna- 
ment. Chi Omega lost to the Poor 
Girls, and the Poor Girls went on to

As the season drew to a 
close, the women played 
their semifinal games with 
much intensity. Poor Girls 
displayed their power by 
crushing Chi Omega by the 
score of 24 - 0. The other 
semi-final game might 
have been the game of the 
season. In a see-saw battle 
that went three overtimes! 
AKI pulled out an 18-12 
victory over SAWB Ladies. 

Poor Girls showed why 
they were undefeated 
going into the finals. They 
pulled it all together for an 
18-14 win over AKI and 
the championship. 

In the men's semi-final 
action, KA pulled off the 
upset of the season by put- 
ting an end to the Poor 
Boys I season with a 26-13 
win. KA jumped ahead 
early and never looked 
back. The other semi-final 

fame saw Chi Phi and 
AWB go into overtime 
once again. Their game 
went into one overtime and 
Chi Phi won 14-6. 

The final of the men's 
tournament featured Chi 
Phi and KA. In a hard 
fought struggle Chi Phi 
prevailed 14-6.

1 22 Women's Club Soccer 

A women's soccer team? A varsity sport? This idea 
began with a group of athletic girls who desired to 
compete on the inter-collegiate level in soccer. And it 
existed on campus for a few years, but bloomed into 
reality under the guidance of Juanita Galindo. Having 
been experienced with establishing other women's soc- 
cer teams, Juanita immediately 

Set the Ball Rolling 

The women applied to 
the OSA for a club 
membership and an initial 
amount of funds to 
purchase uniforms. Both 
of these requests were 
gladly granted to the team. 
In addition weekly prac- 
tices were set up complete 
with four committed 
Coaches Juanita Galindo, 
Jay Tate, Andy Geeter and 
Eric Smith. To further 
their goal as an established 
and self-supporting unity 
the women organized 
several annual fundraisers 
to complete the purchase 
of their uniforms and soc- 
cer equipment. One of 
these Fundraisers included 
a Florida trip give away 
donated by O.U. Alumni 

Association. Juanita set up 
several exhibition games 
for the fall to warm up the 
girls and the campus to the 
essence of women's soccer; 
and established a soccer 
schedule for the spring of 
1988 as their first official 
season. As of mid-fall of '87 
the team had currently 
competed against many 
prominent teams some of 
which were Mill Saps 
College, Jackson, MS. and 
Agnes Scott Atlanta, Ga, 
showing they have the 
edge to be winners. 

The team is made up of 
22 girls with Heidi Dawson 
as captain and Jacqi 
Driscoll as co-captain. The 
club aspect of the team 
consists of the same girls 

with Heidi Dawson - 
President, Jacqi Driscoll - 
Vice President, Beth 
Morrison - Treasurer and 
Melanie Berman - Sec- 
retary, with Juanita 
Galindo as Advisor and 
Head coach. The women 
of this soccer division have 
an immense desire to not 
just learn the game of soc- 
cer but to play at a competi- 
tive collegiate level with the 
O.U. Petrel spirit. And 
with the active support of 
the Oglethorpe adminis- 
trators - this O.U. campus 
may soon be bequeathed 
with a varsity women's soc- 
cer team

For the first time in in- ted until losing the cham- 

tramural history, the 
tournament was ran in a 
double-elimination style. It 
was met with very positive 
responses, as teams that 
lost had a second op- 
portunity to make it to the 
championship games. 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon was 
one team that benefited 
from this new system. Los-

"I found this system 
much more fair. If a team 
was positioned in a bad 
time for some key players, 
it enabled them to still have 
the chance to go to the 
finals. Also, it gave every 
team the opportunity to 
play more games." said

The District Championship 
in Jacksonville was held on a 
poorly marked course on the 
University of North Florida 
campus. The exceptionally 
dry weather made for even 
more loose sand than usual 
and resulted in a very

which is ranked third in the 
nation, dominated both the 
men's and women's races, 
finishing with a perfect score 
of 15 in the men's race. Berry 
was second with 63 points. 

Flagler College third with 73, 
followed by Oglethorpe with

In the best individual effort 
by an Oglethorpe runner in 
several years Mack van't Riet

Greek Life 

With only four fraternities and 
two sororities, the greek system was 
far from being considered a large 
one in comparison with Emory's or 
Georgia Tech's. But the large 
percentage of people joining the 
system was considered fairly 
substantial in comparison with 
other schools. In fact, the number of 
people going through "rush" was 
fairly high, especially the women. 
The sororities more than doubled 
their numbers!

144 RUSH 


Time to Rush 

New members are the life's blood of ony 
Greek organization, and Rush is the transfusion. 
Foil Rush, organized by the Panhellenic Coun- 
oil for sororities, and the Interfroternity Council 
for fraternities, provided for on early influx of 
new members into Greek life, 

Panhellenic Rush began in early September, 
beginning with a dinner at the home of Dr. and 
Mrs. Pottillo and followed by individual parties 
given by the two sororities. Panhellenic Bid Day 
brought 33 new women into the Greek system, 
18 pledging Chi Omega and 15 pledging 
Sigmo Sigma Sigma, Both sororities were 
pleased with the outcome of Rush, as the total 
number of Greek women more than doubled, 
Panhellenic president Kathleen MoDermott 
commented, "Although I'm a little disappoin- 

ted thot so many women dropped out of Rush, 
I still find it promising that more than twice as 
many women accepted bids as in post years. I 
think that's o compliment to the Greek System." 

Fraternity Rush was also successful, begin- 
ning with a dinner at the Pottillo's as well. Later 
in the week each house sponsored o dinner 
[often prepared with the help of little sisters] for 
the rushees. On IFC Bid Day, September 18, 
fraternities welcomed o total of 30 new 
members into the bonds of brotherhood, 
beginning acfivitv-filled pledge periods.

was devised to bring together members of oil 
greek organizations to celebrate a successful 
rush and kick oft the hoi iday season. Members of 
Chi Phi, Delta Sigma Phi, Sigma Alpha Epsilon 
and Tri Sigma met weekly to plan the event 
which despite early low ticket sales, problems 
with the bar and "the little man at the hotel," was 
a smashing success. Appropriately, 150 Greeks 
and friends filled the Romodo Inn Ballroom, 
dancing to the musical mix of SAE James Mor-

S X 2 

The sisters of Sigma Sigma Sigma 
spent o hardworking year pulling closer 
together and improving the new-born 
Epsilon Theta Chapter. 

The year began with a long, hot week- 
end spent working on the house. The 
yard was cleared out, the house 
cleaned up and painted. Even the 
bathroom got a new coot of surprisingly 
pink paint. New furniture completed the 
picture and the Sigma home was ready 
for Rush. 

And what a Rush it wasi Through 
formal and open Rush, twenty new 
pledges entered Tri Sigma 's sisterhood, 
doubling the chapter's size. "It was so 
amazing — we barely fit in the house for 
meetings" said president, Kathy King. 

Calendars were full of mixers, seren- 

ades, parties and meetings. Pledge sis- 
ters even experienced on early- 
morning surprise when they were kid- 
napped for breakfast. 

Intramural sports were somewhat 
more successful than in the past — the

Chi Omega experienced a successful formal 
rusft in fhe fall, pledging 18 new sisfers. They 
picked up one new sisfer fhrough open rusher. 
Secrefory Denice Sayers believes that the size of 
fhe sorority's notional was an attraction tor- 
ushees, while a new initiate, Kym Whyte, said 
that fhe fact that Chi Omega was well- 
established on the campus was o strong point of 
fhe group. With initiations in February, Chi 
Omega actives numbered 34. 

Denice cited greater unity among the mem- 
bers OS the primary goal of the year. She be- 
lieved this goal was met by the membership 
through more activities together. House impro- 
vements were also a priotify, with the group re- 
painting the interior, improving security, and re- 
ceiving a new yard from the year. 

The group's activities for the year included an 
Apple Polishing Tea for the faculty, decorating 
the Christmas tree in the Great Hall, and num- 
erous trips to Bennigan's and the movies. A sign- 
ificant event was the White Carnation Formal 
held of the Peochtree Plaza. They also held the 
Orange Crush, Eleusinian (a celebration of their 
founding] and a mixer with Kappa Alpha and 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon.

The brothers of Delta Sigma Phi started off with 
o successful rush, pledging seven new mem- 
bers. Brother Chris Flint cited th diversity of the 
fraternity's members and the leadership abilities 
of individuals within the group as the qualities of 
the fraternity that most attracted rushees. Delta 
Sig expanded their number of sweetheorts this 
year, welcoming eight new sisters to bring the 
totol to seventeen. 

Chris believes that the fraternity's top goo I was 

to teach the importance of brotherhood to the 
newer members and for the older brothers to 
learn more about brotherhood. 

Among the activities of the fraternity were 
camping trips to north Georgia in both the toll 
and the spring and a skiing trip to Gatlinburg in 
February. New brothers were initiated of the 
beginning of spring semester. Delta Sig was visi- 
ted by a notional consultant in February who 
gave the fraternity ideas about fundraisers.

Growth and development were the primary 
goals for the brothers of the Beta Nu chapter of 
Koppo Alpha. KA, with a spruced up house on 
Lanier, held a successful rush, adding five new 
brothers to their membership. This addition 
brought the growing chapter to o total of twelve 

There seemed to be benefits in membership 
within an up-and-coming organization, as ex- 
plained by pledge Mike Fish, "Pledging KA 
gave me the opportunity to develop and ex- 
ercise rriy leadership skills." 

Under the leadership of Jonathon McLeod 
and transfer student, Greg Patterson, KA worked 
hard to firmly re-establish their chapter. The de- 
dication of the chapter members had been the 
key to their success. As brother Gabriel Arango 
explained, "People hove worked hard; this 
means something to us. I know it's meant a lotto 
me to see some-thing turn from near-ruin into a 
strong and proud fraternity." 

The brothers, however, were not all work and 
no play. The 'Mansion," as it was called, hosted 
open and private parties, mixers with the Chi-O's 
and Tri Sigma 's, and other impromptu gath-

If the Oglethorpian wanted to serve 
the community there was the 
Rotaract Club, Circle K, or Alpha Phi 
Omega. If he wanted to learn about 
diferent cultures he could join the In- 
ternational Club, the Orient Club, or 
the French Club. Now, lets say he 
wanted to gain a little more know- 
ledge about a field of study, possibly 
his own major — there was the 
Economic Club, the Accounting 
Club, the English Club, and Psi-Chi 
(the psychology/sociology club). 

There were also a various amount 
of honoraries that Oglethorpians 
could be asked to join. Among the 
most prestigious were Omicron Delta 
Kappa and Who's Who Among Stu- 
dents in Colleges and Universities. 

But no matter what the student's in- 
terest were, whether it be studying, 
serving the community, working on a 
publication (like the y3irmicra.w), or 
meeting to debate with the Thal- 
ians,there was always an organiza-

his needs picture perfect ly.

Thursday, March 29 — the deadhne for 
declaring candidacy for the OSA race — ar- 
rived with five Oglethorpians having en- 
tered the race for President. Gary Hand, 
with one year of senate experience, Tom 
James, with one year in the senate and one 
in the executive council, Frank Lawton, 
with one year in the executive council, 
Kevin Walmsley, as a first time OSA pros- 
pect, and Johnny White with two years of 
Senate experience fought to gain support in 
the battle for the presidency. The election, 
held on April 16 and 17 narrowed the can- 
didates down to Sophomore Gary Hand and 
Junior Johnny White. Thus they began a 
head to head race for the run-off, from 
which Gary emerged victorious on April 
20. The most competitive of the races was 

the secretarial race between Nicole Caucci 
and Scott Haight. In the end, Scott gained 
the office by a mere two vote margin with 
106 votes to Nicole's 104. Scott Spooner 
ran unopposed for Vice President, Renita 
Rocker was elected parlimentarian, Tom 
Johnson was elected treasurer, Zac Moretz 
was made Sophomore Class President, and 
Brent Bishop was re-elected as the Presi- 
dent of the Class of 1988. Freshman elec- 
tions were held in the fall, when Amanda 
Paetz was elected president. She received 
over 50% of the votes in a four person race 
— a feat that rarely occurs. This completed 
the OSA government, which was to pro- 
vide excellent leadership for the entire 
student body.

Every Tuesday evening, students could 
be found gathered together for friendship 
and support after a diificult day of classes. 
This group, know to Oglethorpians as the 
Oglethorpe Christain Fellowship, not only 
provided its members with singing, fun 
and fellowship in the Tuesday night meet- 
ings, but also met throughout the week for 
small group Bible studies. President, Stacy 
Gates, along with the other officers; Vice- 
President — Randy Padgett, and Secretary 
— Amy McGown, worked hard to plan fun 

and meaningful activities to break the 
monotony of the semester. The OCF began 
the year with a watermelon social to 
welcome new members to the OCF family. 
They also spread Christmas spirit (which 
was pretty hard to catch in the midst of 
exams) by Christmas caroling down 
Woodrow Way. Perhaps the best way to

Service w/a Smile 

Those students who were interested in 
service organizations had three options: 
Rotaract, Alpha Phi Omega, and Circle K. 
These clubs were active throughtout the 
year in many service projects that benefi- 
ted both the school and the community. 

Rotaract, sponsored by the Rotary Club 
of Atlanta, is an international service club. 
One of their many international projects 
was to donate a collection of university 
catalogues from around the world to the 
Library. As a community project, Rotaract 
sponsored one of the most popular 
service events: the annual Trick-or-Treat 
in Traer. For the third year, students en- 
joyed providing a safe and fun place for 
children from the community to trick-or- 

Alpha Phi Omega, the largest national 
service fraternity, pro-vides Oglethor- 
pians with a more intense life of service. 
They met every Sunday evening to plan 

the numerous events that they did 
throughout the year. Among these 
projects were three blood drives, held in 
conjunction with the Red Cross. They also 
worked with the Boys Club of Atlanta and 
on National Service Day they raked yards 
from nine a.m. until six p.m. to raise 
money for a charity organization. 

Circle K sponsored by the Klwana's 
Club, worked with the Special Olympics 
and participated in many intramural^ 
sports. ^ 

Of these organizations, there seemed 
to be at least one that could fit into any 
Oglethorpian's schedule. For the very act- 
ive person, Rotaract fit in nicely. For the 
person willing to dedicate most of his 
time to a group there was APO. And Circle 
K seemed to be somewhere in the 
middle. So, no matter what kind of hectic 
schedule a student had, he could always 
find a way to serve.

When students arrived to find the dor-

the resident assistants had preceeded 

During the course of the semesters, 
when students had a problem of any kind, 
the resident assistants were there to help. 
In fact, they spent many hours working 
tirelessly throughout the year to make the 
dorms comfortable, safe, and fun places to 

They originated such things as the spirit 
competition between the different floors of 
Traer, and birthday parties at the end of 
each month to celebrate these important 
dates for each girl. The resident assistants 
scheduled many informative seminars on 
subjects such as stress, nutrition and fit- 
ness. They showed their dedication and 
committment to each and every resident of 
the dorms by making the year a smooth and 
pleasurable one for everyone.

In The Spotlight 

Under the direction of Lane Anderson, 
the Players presented three plays: Vanities, 
Nuts, and The Ant and the Grasshopper. 

Vanities, presented in the spring, was 
done in the round; the members of the 
audience were seated on the stage. This en- 
abled the audience to experience the full 
emotional effect of the play. Natalie Farr, 
Leah Hughes, and Rise Nachman por- 
trayed three childhood friends who grew 
up to learn the realities of life. They 
performed just feet from the audience, 
thus drawing the audience into involve- 
ment with the story. 

The fall production, Nuts, gave the 
Players the opportunity to portray roles 
that combine intense drama and light 
comedy. Patricia Hatch starred as a 
troubled woman accused of murder, strug- 
gling to prove that she was not insane. Tym 
Briggs, as prosecutor, and Darryl Wade, as 
defender, both gave brilliant perfor- 
mances. The parents were played by Joey 
Masdon and Rise Nachman. The cast was 
completed by Chris Scott as the expert wit- 
ness, Sherry Wilson as court reporter, and 
Mark Wilson as court officer. The stage 
manager as always was the faithful Kim 

In January, the Players again thrilled 

audiences with their Children's Theatre 
production of The Ant and the Grass- 
hopper. This production toured to various 
schools, and delighted the many children 
who watched the play. The Players demon- 
strated tremendous talent in every produc- 
tion, and provided Oglethorpians with ex- 
cellent entertainment. 

Another facet of entertainment available 
to Oglethorpians is the critically acclaimed 
Oglethorpe University Singers. The Sing- 
ers dedicated their noon hour Monday, 
Wednesday, and Friday to practicing for 
their various performances. The Singers 
performed at the Boar's Head Ceremony, 
Capital City Country Club, and Norcross 
First Baptist Church, among many other 
places. Under the direction of Dr. Irwin 
Ray, the Singers did a marvelous job in ex- 
panding the cultural opportunities avail- 
able to students.

Oglethorpe offers its students many 
areas in which to become involved in co- 
curricular activities. Regardless of whether 
or not a student chooses to participate in 
sports and fraternities/sororities, an extra 
addition to many an agenda includes the 
English club, the Economics club, the Psy- 
chology and Sociology club, and the 
Student Education Association. Although 
each of these groups is based upon the 
varied interests of its members, what they 
all have in common are a combination of 
academic and social activities ranging from 

guest speakers, lectures and seminars to 
social gatherings and parties. Throughout 
the year, speakers are invited to promote 
the intellectual understanding of 
numerous topics and they bring with them 
experience and insight often needed to in- 
spire and educate club members. 

But membership in these organizations 
is not only an academic affair; each group 
holds its share of parties where students are 
able to meet other Oglethorpians who 
share the same academic major and whose 
interests run along a common line.

More Than An Honor 

There are numerous organizations 
designed to honor students for high 
standards and achievements in various 
areas of college life. The groups created to 
honor academic achievement in particular 
fields of study are Sigma Tau Delta, Phi 
Alpha Theta, Sigma Zeta, and Psi Chi. 

Sigma Tau Delta, the national Enghsh 
honor society, is made up of declared Engl- 
ish majors who have completed a minimum 
number of hours at the University, and 
who man tain a certain grade point average. 
One of their activities was to sponsor a lec- 
ture by the Dickens scholar and author of 
numerous books, Philip Collins. 

Phi Alpha Theta is made up of those in- 
terested in the study of history. Members 
are required to man tain a 3.0 overall GPA, 
and they are also required to have a 3. 1 in at 
least four history or histor>' related courses. 

For those interested in science and 

math, there is Sigma Zeta. This club en- 
courages excellence in the study of science 
by awarding membership to those students 
who had a 3.3 GPA in their science and 
math courses. Also, there is Psi Chi for 
those who achieved excellence in Psychol- 

Alpha Chi is the primary academic honor 
society. This club, which honors overall 
academic achievement, consists of a mem- 
bership selected by a faculty committee. 
Those students admitted to Alpha Chi were 
at the top of the academic ladder. 

Finally, Omicron Delta Kappa, is an 
honor society to recognize those who 
acheived excellence in every area. This is 
the most prestigous honor possible for 
Oglethorpians. The new members were in- 
ducted prior to the Boar's Head Ceremony 
on December 4.

Working extremely hard throughout the 
year, the Yanmcraw staS finally produced 
the edition of the 1987-88 annual, despite a 
rough year of fi-ustrations, apathy and late 
deadhnes. Nonetheless, the work was com- 
pleted. Many long hours were spent writ- 
ing and editing stories, taking and develop- 
ing pictures, creating layouts, selling ads 
and computerizing the text. Even with the 
latest addition to the staff, a specialized 
computer designed exclusively for year- 
book data entry, the long months of work 
were not made any easier. The yearbook 
itself was not the only responsibility of the 
staff; hand raisers such as the Miss Ogleth- 
orpe Pageant and the finals week survival 
kits were other year-long projects. 

Instead of meeting only three yearly 
deadlines, the Stormy Petrel staff worked 

diligently throughout two semesters to 
keep up with their fifteen deadlines — 
deadlines which ensured the publication of 
the University newspaper every two 
weeks. The Petrel staff remained busy vdth 
numerous interviews, thorough research 
for each story, and many rough drafts prior 
to the final copies which were printed in 
the paper. Pictures were taken and layouts 
were pasted up before each deadline. 

Another important publication on 
campus was The Tower, Oglethorpe's lit- 
erary magazine. The staff encouraged all 
students to submit poetry, prose and art- 
work. Students could have submitted sev- 
eral entries before The Tower staff selected 
the best two or three entries from each per- 
son. Contests were also held for all sub- 
missions to the magazine.

Yearbook Workshops were held at UGA over the 
summer, enabhng Yamacraw staff members to learn 
more about producing a quality book. Lauri Epps, 
photography editor, attended with Sam Mehsen. 

Using a Computer when writing all the copy had 
many advantages for the yearbook staff. Robin Benson 
enters copy for Fran Bennett and Beth Morrison, Or-

Run by Studs 

One of the most popular types of groups 
on campus was the student run or- 
ganizations. These clubs included VISTA, 
the Bomb Shelter, and the Karate Club. 
Students supervised every aspect of the 
groups and their activities. 

VISTA was an acronym for Volunteers In 
Service to Admissions. This organization 
worked closely with the admissions staff in 
the recruitment of new students. VISTA 
arranged overnight visitations and campus 
tours for prospective students. Members 
called the eligible students and assisted 
with special events such as SpringFest and 
Atlanta Day. 

The group called the Bomb Shelter got 
its name from an activity room at the Stu- 

dent Center. This room, formerly a confer- 
ence room, was remodeled and decorated 
by students to resemble a WW II bomb fal- 
lout shelter. Those in charge of the Bomb 
Shelter scheduled regular movies and ran 
the snack bar for the eating enjoyment of its 
visitors. These students also created and 
produced a popular on-campus video series 
called BSTV. The first Annual BSTV Ac- 
ademy Awards was held in the Bomb Shel- 

The Karate Club met regularly to discuss 
and practice karate skills. This club was 
open to those with all levels of karate ex- 
perience, and offered beginners the chance 
to improve their karate moves.

spreading The Word 

Endeavoring to spread international un- 
derstanding, the French Ckib, Interna- 
tional Club and Orient Club had rather 
busy agendas during the past year. 

In November, the International Club 
sponsored their annual International 
Night, inviting people from all over Atlanta 
to experience the various new cultures and 
fine cuisines offered by its members. This 
community project was not the only benefi- 
cial activity offered by the International 
Club; it enabled students from various 
backgrounds (and countries) to meet and 
lessen the "cultural shock" of coming to 
America, as well as giving Americans a bet- 
ter opportunity to meet foreign students. 

The French Club began sales of Advent 
calendars in November. Their goal was to 
raise money for a scholarship fund — help- 
ing an Oglethorpian go abroad to a French 
cultured country. In December, the 
French Club had a bake sale that also profi- 
ted their fund. 

The Politics and Pre-Law Association 
was not actually spreading international 
understanding through various projects, 
but they did sponsor several lectures and 
seminars on such topics that involved 
foreign affairs. The PPLA endeavored to 
help Oglethorpians interested in further- 
ing their education in Law, find informa- 
tion, and prepare to take the LSAT.

184 WHO'S WHO 


Who's Who Among Students 
in American Universities and 
Colleges is a prestigious award 
given each year to a select 
number of college students 
across the country. This honor 
gives the students national 
recognition for being campus 
leaders while maintaining a 
high grade point average. Our 
twenty-two honorees were 
recommended by a nominating 
committee of Oglethorpe 
faculty, students, and adminis- 
trators. The committee based 
their recommendations of 
these upperclassmen on 
academic achievement, leader- 
ship and participation in ex- 
tracurricular activities, service 
to the campus community, and 
good citizenship. Con- 
gratulations to (left to right)

WHO'S WHO 185 


More than 75% of all Oglethor- 
pians worked somewhere to earn a 
little extra spending money. Most 
everyone on financial aid had a work 
study job, and if that didn't offer en- 
ough money there was always Macy's 
or Mick's. Once tuition was paid off, 
Oglethorpians knew of hundreds of 
ways to get rid of some extra dough. 
Movies seemed to be a popular way to 
spend a lot of money fast — the aver- 
age movie theatre in Atlanta charged 
five dollars! Once you were in the 
lobby, popcorn and cokes would add 
another ten dollars to your total 
spending. But most money spent by 
students went to some kind of food es- 
tablishment. If it wasn't Pizza King, 
Primo's or Domino's students left 
campus to McDonald's, Del Taco or 
the newly remodeled "Oglethorpe" 
Burger King. But no matter how they 
spent it, or where, money enabled 
Oglethorpians to make life that much 
more picture perfect.

'To cry is human;" and it seemed 
that throughout there were tears 
shed for a multi-faceted list of 
events. Gary Hart dropped out of the 
presidential race after photos in the 
National Enquirer proved his infidel- 
ity with Donna Rice. OIlie North testi- 
fied about the Iran/Contra affair. Pat 
Schroeder announced her decline 
from the presidential race in a tearful 
speech. Presidential candidate Joe 
Biden dropped out of the race after 
admitting that he had lied about his 
academic record. Supreme Court 
contestant number two, Douglas 
Ginsburg, lost his nomination after 
admitting to smoking marijuana. On a 
more familiar note to Oglethorpians, 
Eileen Stevens spoke in Lupton 
Auditorium about hazing — the cause 
of her son's death; the speech brought 
the speaker and many in the audience 
to tears. Amnesty International came 
to the campus, trying through many 
endeavors to enlighten students to 
their causes, praying for a world more 
picture perfect 



Picture Perfect 

Television experienced the Yuppie 
invasion with L.A. Law and Thirty 
something, while music showed the 
diversity of popularity with Bon Jovi 
and the Beastie Boys creating the top 
two albums of the year. The Aca- 
demy awarded deaf actress Marlee 
Matlin an Oscar for her performance 
in Children of a Lesser God; and 
found no favorite of the year, split- 
ting the trophies among Room with 
a View, IHannah and Her Sisters and 
Plattoon. Snow White turned fifty, 
Jackie Gleason passed away, and 
Cher forced her way back into the 
spotlight with three movies, an al- 
bum and mega magazine covers. 
Overall, the entertainment industry 
found glorious success in revenues. 
Americans spent billions for cable 
t.v., theatre tickets, and video rent- 
als; all in an attempt to spend their 
"quality time" picture perfectly.

On February eleventh, at ten-thirty, 
the switchboard was turned off, 
classes ended, and the administra- 
tion shut their doors. Oglethorpians 
from every facet of University life left 
what they would usually do on a 
Thursday to be done later, and headed 
towards the audtorium. The Ogle- 
thorpe Day festivities began in the 
auditorium where speeches were 
given and songs were sung. Dr. 
Linda Taylor was given a special gift 
from President Manning Pattillo 
honoring her for writing the new 
alma mater. Afterwards, people pa- 
raded down to the gym for further 
activities. Lane Anderson, Drama 
Director, put together a sensational 
program. The event was set in the 
Middle Ages — with king and 
queen, the gold knight, the black 
knight, and a variety of entertain- 
ment including jugglers and a chess 
match using living pieces! Through 
these endeavors, community life 
started off Oglethorpe's 1 54th year 
picture perfectly.

The 1988 Yamacraw was printed on 80 pound 
Embossed Paper. Optima was the typestyle used 
on the cover, in the opening, on division pages 
and in the closing. Also a unique typestyle was 
used in each section: Novarse Medium in Student 
Life, Avant Extra Light in Greeks, Stymie in 
People, Baskerville in Sports, Caledonia in 
Organizations, and Eurostyle in Academics. The 
cover is a four-color lithograph, laminated. The 
1988 Yamacraw consists of 208 pages, of which 

32 are color, and 1 6 spot colored. The approxi- 
mate cost was $1 8,000. 

The Yamacraw is a member of the Columbia 
Scholastic Press Association, and the American 
Scholastic Press Association. 

The 1 987 Yamacraw received a second place 
rating from both associations. 

Special thanks goes to Mary Kay and Jim 
Kimmitt, our Hunter Representatives, and to 
Perry Dement, our advisor.
