Around campus, students 
could be counted on for one thing: 
to keep abreast of the news, 
whether it be campus, local, or na- 

As they returned to school, 
students were found in clusters, re- 
counting summer tales of classes, 
jobs, and for the more fortunate 
students, like Wendy Smith, trips 
to Europe. 

The television became a close 
friend this year as it announced 
that Atlanta was the 1996 Olym- 
pic City, and Atlanta's own Evan- 
der Holyfield was the new Heavy- 
weight Champion of the World. 
Students also listened with baited 
breath to accounts of battle as our 
military presence in the Persian 
Gulf turned from Operation Des- 
ert Shield to the war, Desert 

Mad Hatter. With so many students dressing up. 
students often find others dressed in costumes simi-

Even with such monumental 
happenings, students managed to 
return their focus back to campus 
events. The fraternities found new 
houses; the library recovered from 
a fire and broke ground for a new 
expansion, and the athletic depart- 
ment began preparing for a base- 
ball team and a girl's basketball 
team. Throughout it all, students 
struggled to stay informed.

words were whispered

6 Student Life 




Although academics at Ogle- 

. thorpe are rigorous, or perhaps be- 

r. J cause of this fact, students sure 

know how to let loose and enjoy. 

In the fall, returning students 
got an opportunity to meet new 
students while moving in and at 
events such as the Fall Jam. 

Students warmly embraced 
the holidays with parties for both 
Halloween and Christmas. 

Those who could not find 
enough excitement at parties 
headed out on the town to either 
the bars in Buckhead or in Virgin- 
ia Highlands. Unfortunately, the 
freshmen never got to experience 
PJ Haleys during its hey day. 

The second semester was ush- 
ered in with a sprinkling of snow- 
that failed to cancel day classes. 
As the weather slowly heated up, 
so did the social activity with 
events such as Springfest and 
Beach Bash rounding out the year.

As the summer weeks Hew by, 
the day of reckoning loomed closer 
and closer. Soon the momentous 
da\' arrived and students once 
again streamed through Ogle- 
thorpe's gates. Cars, trucks and 
vans, all crammed to overtlowing, 
crowded the campus as parents 
and friends helped students move 
into rooms that would be "home" 
over the next nine months. 

As the week progressed, stu- 
dents settled in their rooms, and 
then they made themselves busy 
catching up on the news of old 
friends and meeting the new faces 
on campus. The numerous parties 

provided the perfect opportunity 
for such activities. 

Finally, the dreaded day came, 
and classes started once again. 
However, luck intervened, and a 
ferocious storm provided a night 
long black out. With such an ex- 
cuse, students were able to put off 
studying one more night and con- 
tinue their fun. 

The week finished with a three 
day Labor Day weekend. The 
weekend was full of games and 
parties as students did their best to 
extend their work-less days as long 
as possible.

This year Oglethorpe Parents" 
Weekend fell on October 5-6, 
1990. In retrospect, Oglethorpe's 
Parents' Weekend was a great suc- 
cess not only in terms of parent 
participation but in student in- 
volvement as well. 

For the parents. Parents Week- 
end was a chance to visit with their 
student and in many cases to treat 
them to a well deserved meal at one 
of Atlanta's finest restaurants. 
Parents enrolled and attended 
mini-classes, and the traditional 
reception was held at the Presi- 
dent's home. The grand finale of 
Saturday's activities was the 
"Showtime" where faculty, staff, 
students, and even parents show- 
cased their talent. 

Student participation became a 
real focus for Saturday afternoons' 
activities. An Extra-Curricular 
Activites Exhibit was among the 
highlights. Student groups dis-

played their activities and in some 
cases, treated the parents to re- 
freshments and even a free car

ticipated were the Greeks who 
sponsored the free car wash and 
did "Chalk Art" on the sidewalk; 
the Alcohol and Health Awareness 
Committee and Alpha Phi Omega 
who hosted a refreshment table 
where soda and mock-tails were 
served: Poloroid pictures in a sou- 
venir frame was the treat of the 
Yamacraw staff: and last but not 
least we must mention ECOS: En-

Environmental Awareness Week 
and the Campus Wide Recycling 
Campaign were launched. As

When large groups of people 
Hock to Traer to party it could only 
be the 1990 Fall Jam at Ogle- 
thorpe. The party started with 
loads of good food like chicken and 
corn on the cob straight from the 
big pit barbecue. Then the D. J. 
from Power 99 began spinning the 
tunes, and the dorm started hop- 
ping. There was dancing, drinking, 
volleyball and just good old fash- 
ioned socializing. Rob Hutcheson, 
a freshman, said he had a great 
time, and it was his first chance to

Oglethorpe students. Scott Piehl 
and his gang proclaimed their ad- 
miration for a fellow named Jose 
Cuervo, and Eddie Zarecor said he 
thoroughly enjoyed the challeng- 
ing volleyball matches. All in all, 
it was a fun filled, action packed 
day. As the sun began to set, and 
the crowd began to dissipate, they 
all knew that this would be remem- 
bered as one of the finer days at

again, students decided that Hal-

big kids could have some fun too. 

The annual Chi Phi Halloween

show off a different side of them- 
selves. "You can wear whatever

Midnight, January 15 — that 
was the U N deadHne for Saddam 
Hussein to withdraw his Iraqi mili- 
tary from Kuwait. It was also a 
time of intense anxiety and expec- 
tation for the Oglethorpe students, 
as the\ gathered around televisions 
and radios to await news of the be- 
ginning of the Persian Gulf War. 
Unfortunately, the tension was to 
last nineteen more hours, when 
President George Bush declared 
the engagement of "Operation 
Desert Storm." Fortunately, how- 
ever, this war lasted only slightly 
over a month. 

The first attack was at 7:00 p.m. 
on January 16. The Allied forces 
began the war with numerous air 
bombing raids. The key targets for 
these air strikes were Iraqi com- 
munication abilities, bio-chemical 
facilities, nuclear plants, and 
SCUD missile launchers. The 
ground war started on January 30 
with offensive action by Iraqi 
troops. These troops invaded south 
from Kuwait into Saudi Arabia, 
but three of the four attacks were 
defeated by Saudi and U S forces. 
The War in the Gulf ended on the

final days of February, and Presi- 
dent Bush, as stated in his State of 
the Union Address, kept his word 
that "our forces will not stay one 
more moment longer than is neces- 
sary to complete their mission." 

During the War in the Gulf, stu- 
dents not only worried about the 
events of the war, but many were 
also active supporters of the Amer- 
ican troops. On the night of the 
deadline, students united for a can- 
dlelight vigil in the men's quad, 
and they continued to hold this 
midnight vigil for many consecu- 
tive nights thereafter. Although 
some students were concerned 
about the purpose of the vigil, Tom 
Printz and Julie Jacques, the prin- 
cipal organizers, assured students 
in the Stormy Petrel that this event 
was strictly a "peaceful pro-Amer- 
ican rally." Also, the Writing 
Company sponsored a letter-writ- 
ing campaign. This campaign gave 
students the opportunity to express 
their support of the troops. Al- 
though it was a difficult period, the 
campus-wide concern for the 
troops was comforting to many 
people, both abroad and at home.

Gotcha! As the snow began to gather on the 
ground, students gathered in the quad to do 
the logical thing: have a snow ball fight.

to the weather reports. Snow

The weather forecasters were 
skeptical, and students feared that 
their hopes had once again been 
dashed. Their spirits picked up 
again the next morning. The 
ground was covered by 10:00 a.m. 
Although there was only about an 
inch, it was enough. "I decide that 
there was too much snow to bother 
going to class," explained Shannon

dents gathered in the quad and a

fights soon were in full swing. "I

time playing in it and making

As the snow started to melt, 
some students made plans to travel 
north in search of more snow. 
However, a few phone calls re- 
vealed that the snow was melting 
all over. 

All students could do was hope 
for more snow. The forecast of 
flurries for February 15 again 
brought joy to eyes of students. 
However, the snow refused to stick 
that day, and they had to be con- 
tent with the memories from their 
single snow day for the year. "The 
snow is .so cool. It brings out the kid 
in everyone," concluded Chris

The members of Atlanta's 
Dream Team crossed their fingers 
in Tokyo, Japan while thousands 
of supporters waited anxiously at 
Underground Atlanta. Finally, the 
announcement came in the early 
morning hours on September 18, 
1 990 via satellite. Atlanta was cho- 
sen as the site for the 1996 summer 
Olympic Games! 

Despite tough competition from 
other cities, Atlanta won the selec- 
tion on the fifth ballot. Athens, 
Greece was the other main con- 
tender for the site, but the attrac- 
tion of tradition for the city of 
Athens was not enough to sway the 
Olympic Committee. 

Hopefully, Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity will benefit from this attention 
the city. In addition to the wide- 
spread exposure for Atlanta, the 
sixteen day Olympic Games, 
which will be held from July 20th 
to August 4th, are expected to 
boost local economy by as much as 
$3. 48 billion dollars. Tickets to the 
various events will be sold from an 
average price of S25 to $200.

On November 6, 1990 Demo- 
crat Zell Miller was named the

Continuing in his family tradi-

in on January 14th by Chief Jus- 
tice Harold Clarke. His father was 
a distinguished senator, and his 
mother served for twenty-five 
years on the Young Harris City 

Council and was mayor of that city 
for two years. However, shortly af- 
ter the election. Governor Miller 
announced that he will serve only 
one term as governor. 

Interestingly, as evidenced by 
the extensive use of mass media, 
analysts claimed that this gover- 
nor's race was the most expensive 
race in Georgia history. The five 
candidates spent a total of $ 1 7 mil- 
lion. Millerhimself spent $6. 6 mil-

LAWRENCE TAYLOR JERSEY Worn During 1986 Season 

Super Bowl XXV was definitely 
an unprecedented game in football 
history. In Tampa on January 27. 
1991, the New York Giants took 
on the Buffalo Bills. Althougth the 
Bills fought hard, the final score 
was an incredibly close Giants-20, 
Bills-19. In fact, this game was the 
first time in Super Bowl history 
that a team won by just one point. 

The last quarter was particular- 
ly disappointing for the Buffalo 
Bills. In the last four seconds of the 
game. Bills player Scott Norwood 
kicked from the 47th yard line in 
a last-ditch effort to win. Unfortu- 
nately for Buffalo, the ball went 
wide right, and the thrill of victory 
went to the New York Giants. 

Both the Giants' offensive and 
defensive line played a tough game 
with great skill. In addition to a 
fantastic performance by New 
York tailback Ottis Anderson, 
Lawrence Taylor, outside line- 
backer number 56, made a great 
contribution to the game. This was 
the Giants" second Super Bowl vic- 
tory within the last five years.

The Winning Braves. Previous- 
ly known as "Loserville" the At- 
lanta area sports gave students lit- 
tle to be excited about. However, 
things have begun to change. 

Upon returning for spring se- 
mester, students were greeted with 
signs advertising their downtown 
neighbor, Georgia Tech's Football 
National Championship. 

The winning seemed to be conta- 
gious, for a new phenomenon ap- 
peared with spring: the Atlanta 
Braves had a winning season! In 
fact, they were continually in first 
or second place. 

Earth Day. Earth Day 1991- a 
day set aside for the celebration of 
our planet and environment. On 
April twenty-second, this well at- 
tended celebration was held in 
Piedmont Park near downtown At- 
lanta. This day was particularly 
important because it provided a 
highly publicized way of raising 
awareness of the many ways in 
which the planet and its atmo- 
sphere are damaged by man. Fur- 
thermore, it allowed for the wide- 
spread education of the public 
about what they can do, or refrain 
from doing in order to prevent fur- 
ther damage to the environment. 

The Oglethorpe student organi- 
zation ECOS (Environmentally 
Concerned Oglethorpe Students) 
made these two objectives a daily 
concern on campus. Although 
Earth Day was a useful way to see 
these objectives in a national sense. 

It seemed that the money spent 
on hiring players from the free 
agent market was well worth it. 
The new lineup, which featured 
only one returning starter has pro- 
duced amazing results. 

The future looks equally bright, 
for the team consists of Rookie of 
the Year, David Justice, Come-

The Georgia Renaissance Fes- 
tival. As an annual event in Geor- 
gia, the Renaissance Festival gave 
Oglethorpe Students the opportu- 
nity to escape the drudgery of aca- 
demics. The festival, which was 
held every weekend from April 
twenty-sixth to June ninth, offered 
a variety of activities to make this 
rememberable experience. 

The festival included plays, 
comedy shows, juggling acts, and 

Also, many goods and services 

were for sale in the festival market 
place. Oglethorpe student Jennifer 
Adkins returned from the festival 
delighted with her flowered hair 
braid and mysteriously speaking of 
her fortune as told by a palmistry 
artist. Mary Catherine Cutcliffe 
was also thrilled with her Came- 
lon, an article of clothing that can 
be transformed into as many as 
eighteen different outfits! 

The festival allowed imagina- 
tions to run wild and for a time, 
forget about pending exams.

The founding of Oglethorpe is 
annuall\ celebrated in February. 
With the grow th of the athletic de- 
partment over the year, athletics 
was deemed this year's theme. 

The cheerleaders lent their tal- 
ents for decorations, and the gym 
sported signs and balloons for the 
day's festivities. "We spent all 
morning blowing up those bal- 
loons." exclaimed Suzanne Brown, 
one of the bookstore employees 
who helped blow up the many bal- 

The program began with the 
Oglethorpe Singers and The Brass 
Ensemble leading the crowd in the 
"Star Spangled Banner" in honor 
of the troops in the gulf. 

The featured speaker of the day 
was Trustee Steve Schmidt. He 
spoke of the past accomplishments 
of the athletic teams, including the 
past baseball and football teams. 
He also introduced the highlight of 
the program, a tribute to the mem- 
ory of Luke Appling, an alumnus 
of Oglethorpe and a member of the 
Major League Baseball Hall of 
Fame. Just prior to his recent 
death. Mr. Appling had been 
named Honorary Coach for the 
new baseball team. 

Otis M. Jackson, a former trust- 
ee and member of Oglethorpe Ath- 
letic Hall of Fame was also hon- 
ored as this year's "Mr. Booster."

Finally, as a salute to future ath- 
letics. Dr. Donald Stanton threw 
out a baseball to the new coach 
Pete Meyer and a basketball to the 
new women's coach Brenda Hill- 
man. To round out the presenta- 
tion, the players put on a "spirit

and the cheerleaders performed a 
routine to the "Stormy Petrel 

After the presentation, students 
were served lunch in the gym. The 
menu consisted of traditional sta-

After eating, students were able 
to try out their own athletic skills. 
Games such as football and base- 
ball throw, golf, and ping-pong 
were provided for students to enjoy 
themselves. "It is a lot more fun 

when there are games and stuff for 
us to do," explained Chris Brown. 

At one o'clock, the crowd moved 
to the quad for the second annual 
"Petrels of Fire Race." A tradition 
started by Coach Bob Unger, the 
race requires students to circle a 
part of the Academic Quad in the 
time it takes for the Lupton's noon 
time bells to chime. Although he 
did not beat the bells, Steve Sum- 
merow once again defeated all oth- 
er runners to retain the winner's 

Dean Donald Moore explained 
that the day was designed to high- 
light interesting history about ath- 
letics and focus on its future direc- 
tion. Along with a fun day for stu- 
dents, the day accomplished its 

All in the Family. As the new baseball 

coach, Pete Meyer was one of the focal 
points of the day's program. His wife Cindy 
and their son Mitchell join him to celebrate 
the day.

Parades, beads, Fat Tuesday's 
and trips to New Orleans, it's 


Mardi Gras originally began as 
a celebration among Roman Cath- 
olics which marked the last days of 
partying before the somber days of 
lent began. Fat Tuesday which is 
the culmination of Mardi Gras, is 
held every year on the day before 
Ash Wednesday. 

Although some local bars, par- 
ticularly "Fat Tuesday's" cele- 
brate the holiday with a large par- 
ty, few students have actually wit- 
nessed the actual Mardi Gras cele- 
bration. This unfortunate 
occurrence is due to the fact that 
Mardi Gras is only held in New 
Orleans. Louisiana, Mobile, Ala- 
bama, and a few other Gulf Coast 
towns. However, this year a few 
students decided to migrate south 
to take part in the activities. 

A group of Chi Phis, KAs, and 
their girlfriends organized a trip to 
New Orleans to join in the festivi- 
ties. After arranging to stay in a 
cottage, the group began the eight 
hour trip on the Thursday before 
Fat Tuesday. Most of the students 
were overwhelmed by what they 

saw at the celebration. "People 
were stripping left and right, try- 
ing to get someone to throw them 
these plastic beads." Randy Greer 
e.xplained. "It was like there was 
some huge contest to see who could 
get the most." "All we did was go 
to parades, party, and drink," con- 
tinues Jimmy Campbell. Unfortu- 
nately, the group could not remain 
for Fat Tuesday, but had to return 
on Sunday for classes. 

Other students also made the 
trip for Mardi Gras, but instead 
went to their hometown of Mobile. 
"Mobile's Mardi Gras is not as 
raunchy and crowded as New Or- 
lean's, but there's enough people to 
have a great time," said Kellie 
Sims. Misty Gonzales and her bo\- 
friend. Dennis Wilson, also visited 
Mobile to attend the parades and 
balls of the societies which her fa- 
ther is a member. 

For all those who made the trip, 
the conclusion was unanimous: At- 
lanta, without a doubt, needs to 
start its own celebration of Mardi

problems, the combination of three 
activities was the secret of success. 
The triple whammy of a pep rally,

event was planned as a bonfire to 
be held behind the library, rainy 

weather on Friday forced the pep

Of the three events that were 
planned for the weekend of Home- 
coming, the formal dance was the 
celebrated highlight of the festivi- 
ties. Over two-hundred students 
and friends of Oglethorpe students 
attended the formal dance held at 
Carbo's Cafe on Roswell Road. 

Barbaree Church, the Home-

The band mostly played original 
dance music. Their unique style in- 
spired those at the formal to keep

dents went to see Barbaree Church

enjoyed the sounds of Barbaree

definitely was a key factor in the 
great success of the dance. 

Another feature attraction of 
the Homecoming Formal was the 
annual crowning of Lord and Lady 
Oglethorpe. The candidates were 
nominated from various organiza- 
tions on campus. All students then

named Lord and Lady Oglethorpe

"Springfest 91, An Olympic

of April 11-13. Oglethorpe was 
host to seventy-four prospective 
freshmen. They were divided into 
four different teams, each being 
led by two faculty or staff mem- 

This year the admissions staff 
asked the organizations on campus 
to help sponsor some of the differ- 
ent activities. Some of the greek or- 
ganizations as well as other cam- 
pus groups volunteered. The four 
different teams competed in the 

games in an effort to encourage 
unity among the prospectives. 

In addition to competing in the 
games, the prospectives had the 
opportunity to meet with an advi- 
sor, attend classes, take placement 
tests, and preregister for fall clas- 
ses. They also saw a play and at- 
tended Greek Week functions. 

However, the most important 
part of Springfest was that it gave 
prospective students the opportu- 
nity to attend college for a week- 
end and experience it, from living 
in the dorms to cafeteria food.

Exams were over, and the par-

It was a time for celebration, 
and the seniors made the most of 
it. They were honored at a party

Students knew that all the 
hard work would be worth it. 
However, as they plowed through 
journals in the library basement, 
it was difficult to be so optimistic. 
Despite their feelings on the sub- 
ject, students knew that to survive, 
a large part of their lives had to in- 
volve academics. 

In order to make the time 
spent studying more productive, 
students found their own unique 
study spot, whether it was the li- 
brary, or sitting in the middle of 
the quad. They also discovered 
that frequent study breaks helped 
to ease the hours of studying. 

Students knew that it could 
be worse. The small classes and 
personal attention from professors 
made hard classes a little easier. 
The ability to take courses which 
they were interested in also made 
studying more fun.

Divider 45 

Many students have found that the 
key to productive studying is finding the 
right environment for studying. This can 
vary from person to person and for differ- 
ent types of homework. 

The traditional place for studying 
has always been the library. Many stu- 
dents such as Hal Royer find that the 
tables and study carols of the library pro- 
vide the seclusion and quiet which they 
need to study. However, with so many 
people in the library, some students find 
that they end up spending more time so- 
cializing than studying. For this reason. 
Randy Greer decided that the 24-hour 
study room in Goslin provided a much 
better place to study. "It is not a social 
scene like the library is," he explained. 

Some people like to study with 

others around, but prefer to move the 
study sessions to a less public place. "Lots 
of times a bunch of us will go buy beer 
and then drink while we do homework. 
The only problem is that you can only do 
that with busy-work type homework," 
said LaRisa Slaughter. 

However, most students seem to feel 
that the seclusion of their rooms offers 
the best studying environment. Here, 
they have access to their computers, the 
phone, food and drinks. They can even 
spread their stuff all over the floor if they 
wish, as Scott Frey prefers to do. Home 
is also better for those late night studiers 
like Danny Turner who studies at 1:00

For those highly motivated students, 
the school offers a program which allows 
them to do their own research and devel- 
op a thesis paper and presentation. If 
completed successfully, the student will 
graduate with honors in the field in which 
the thesis was completed. 

The course starts the second semes- 
ter of the junior year. After being de- 
clared eligible, based on their GPA, stu- 
dents begin to search for just the right 
topic which interests them enough to 
spend a year working on it. As they begin 
their preliminary research, the juniors 
also attend the honors presentations 
made by seniors. Finally at the end of the 
semester, they must hand in a prospectus 
which defines their topic. 

The true honors work begins in the 
fall as seniors complete the bulk of their 

research. The type of research can vary 
greatly depending on the subject of the 
thesis. For those doing traditional papers 
in history, philosophy or literature, hours 
are spent searching through books and 
journals. Students presenting a thesis in 
writing, psychology or science may actu- 
ally complete their own research through 
experiments or autobiographical works. 
Students are given three hours of credit 
for their work. 

As spring semester approaches, only 
revisions of the paper and the presenta- 
tion itself remain. Upon review of the pa- 
per and presentation, a committee of 
three faculty members decides if the 
work merits honors status. After all the 
work, most committees mercifully award 
the coveted honors status.

Honors 49 

Students at Oglethorpe often find 
that they are required to spend a great 
deal of time doing homework and study- 
ing. Therefore, in order to keep their sani- 
ty, many people take frequent study 
breaks to break up the monotonous hours 
of work. 

Some students have worked out an 
elaborate system of studying and breaks, 
a schedule of when to take breaks and 
how long to take them. Other students 
take breaks when they hit a convenient 
stopping point in their studies. Still 
others, like may listen to their own mind 
and take a break when the need arises. 
"I take my breaks when 1 fall asleep," ex- 
plains Lisa Rock. 

The big question then arises of what 
to do during the much needed break. For 
those like Billy Stalker who studies near

the other hand, instead of TV, some go 
visit a neighbor or talk with a roommate 
to catch up on the latest gossip. Jennifer 
Lewis uses her breaks to go visit with 
friends at the SAE house. 

For those well disciplined or frazzled 
souls, now is the chance to start some 
laundry or do some much needed clean- 
ing. "1 study in the middle of my floor, 
surrounded by tons of clothes, books and 
dirty dishes. Sometimes I just have to

Study Breaks 51 


The library has traditionally been 
the study place of students. The study 
room and many study carols provide the 
quiet atmosphere which students need for 
their studying. "1 always go to the library 
for my serious studying!" exclaims Me- 
gan Grogan. 

The library does not meet the needs 
for all students; however, and many have 
voiced their complaints about the lack of 
resources available. "I always have to go 
to Emory's library for my term papers. 
1 had one due on sharks and our library 
had one book: a kids" bookl" complained 
Robb Sellards. 

Even with the few resources avail- 
able, students realized how much they 
appreciated the library when it closed for 
a week following a fire on November I. 
The fire apparently was started by a 
surge of electricity in faulty wiring. Al- 
though no materials were damaged, and 
there was only minimal structural dam- 
age on the fifth floor, the library re- 
mained closed for a week while the Fire 
Marshall inspected the building's wiring. 

Fire's Out! An electrical fire in the library's tower 
.sent a flurry of excitement onto the campus as fire 
trucks rushed lo the scene. The fire was quickly 
brought under control when the ladder truck was 
put into service. Photo courtesy of Mark Caprio. 

"It was right in the middle of term paper 
time," explained Angela Moss. "Most 
teachers were pretty understanding, but 
students with stricter teachers ended up 
at Emory." 

The wiring and the rest of the library 
will receive a facelift when the new addi- 
tion is added. The new addition, a goal 
of President Stanton's, should make 
many new resources available to the stu- 
dents, alleviating the trips to Emory. 

The addition finally got underway 
with the ground breaking on January 29. 
Although the snowy weather forced the 
ceremony into Lupton Auditoriutn, the 
communications department still man- 
aged to turn the event into a gala affair. 
Georgia Supreme Court Justice Charles 
Weltner had the honor of turning the first 
shovel of dirt. The new library will be 
named for his father, Phillip Weltner, 
Oglethorpe's sixth president. Chris 
Brow n described the prospect of a new li- 
brary as well as the ceremony itself as "a 
great coming together."

Books, food, clothes and gifts could 
all be conveniently found in a small sec- 
tion of campus. This handy store is locat- 
ed in the basement of Hearst Hall and is 
known as the Bookstore. 

The store's main purpose is to stock 
and distribute textbooks for all the class- 
es. This policy makes the place a bit 
crowed on registration day. "All the stu- 
dents come as soon as they can in order 
to get used books," explains work study 
student Suzanne Brown. 

Besides the textbooks, the store also 
offers a wide variety of Oglethorpe 
sportswear as well as school and office 
supplies. The latter stock creates easy ac- 
cess for the campus offices and organiza- 
tions. The bookstore has accounts for

further. "It's a whole lot easier to run up 
to the bookstore for things than to have 
to find a car and drive to the store every 
time." concludes Busy Shires. 

The bookstore director. Chuck 
Wingo, and the employees also take an 
active part in campus activities. Organi- 
zations have been able to order items 
through the bookstore at a cheaper price 
than elsewhere. The store also lent its he- 
lium and labor to help blow up the hun- 
dreds of balloons w hich were used to dec- 
orate the campus for homecoming and 
Oglethorpe Day. Without the store, stu- 
dents and faculty would find their lives 
much harder.

One thing could always manage to 
get students up and moving well before 
their normal waking hour. That fear of 
not getting into their desired classes moti- 
vated students to be at the registrar's of- 
fice by 8:30 on the first day of registra- 

After years of enduring the great 
rush on the first day of registration, and 
hearing seniors complain about closed 
classes, the registrar's office decided to 
delegate a day of registration to each 
class. "Everyone used to come the first 
day and that just didn't work," explained 
Amy Mahony of the registrars office. 
"Now it's not so cutthroat. People can see 
their advisor on a more normal schedule." 

Since seniors were given the first 
day, they heartily approved of the new 
system. "It worked for me," exclaimed 
Jim Beall. Steve Greene added that it 

was better since many seniors need cer- 
tain classes to graduate, whereas the un- 
derclassmen don't need them yet. 

Many underclassmen also found the 
system fair, feeling as Dave Fisher did, 
that seniors had earned the right to go 
first. John Gibbs agreed that the new 
policy was good because otherwise "it'd 
be chaos!" Although they knew the sys- 
tem was a fair way to solve a big problem, 
Zack Butler expressed the feelings of 
many freshmen and sophomores when he 
said, "it stinks for us." "Two of my classes 
were already closed, and I got there when 
it opened." 

Despite the mixed feelings, the new 
policy made the week go much smoother 
for the staff and the students. "It worked 
out well. The lines were shorter, and there 
was not as much pressure," concluded ,lu- 
lian Robichaux.

Although not frequented by many 
full-time students, the Continuing Edu- 
cation office is a very busy place. This di- 
vision of the school was designed to allow 
older students to continue their educa- 
tion. All students must be twenty-one 
years or older and enrolled in only night 
and Saturday classes to be considered for 
the program. Most of the students are 
employed full time. Some are trying to 
finish up degrees which they had pursued 
in earlier years, whereas other are seek- 
ing further education in order to make 
their skills more marketable. The school 

has special programs for companies to 
pay for their employees" classes. 

The staff of the office divides up the 
many duties which allow older students 
to continue their education. Dr. John 
Thames, Dean of Continuing Education, 
is responsible for advising the continuing 
ed students. Dr. Carl Pirkle advises stu- 
dents in the non-credit courses. 

The non-credit courses are open to 
any adult, and cost only a small fee. The 
classes include foreign languages, busi- 
ness, and personal enrichment courses, as 
well as many others.

All of the work which students com- 
plete for their classes does not go com- 
pletely unnoticed. Aside from the person- 
al satisfaction and the edge at interview- 
ing time, hard work and superior grades 
are awarded annually at the Honors and 
Awards Night. 

Those students who have been selected 
into Who's Who Among American Col- 
leges and Universities, the Freshmen 
Honor Society, or another of the numer- 
ous other honor societies, receive their 
certificates at this time. 

The majority of the night is devoted to 
conferring the prestigious individual 
awards to selected students. Awards are 

given out to outstanding business, psy- 
chology, education, history, political 
studies, English, science, and philosophy 
majors. Awards for those talented stu- 
dents are given in poetry, prose, art, and 
singing. The sophomore and freshman 
with the highest GPA is also recognized. 
Even the outstanding teachers are recog- 
nized. This year Dr. Brightman received 
the Pierian Spring Award and Dr. Weiss 
received the Kappa Alpha Golden Apple 

Although it is difficult to say if the 
awards really made it all worthwhile, 
most recipients agreed that it was nice to 
be recognized.

The many activities and 
events offered to students were the 
products of the diverse organiza- 
tions which made up campus life. 

The honor societies and aca- 
demic clubs allowed students to 
display their talents to the world 
as well as to find their own niche 
in the outside world. 

The performing clubs gave 
students the opportunity to devel- 
op their talents, whether they were 
in music, drama, dance, or art. 
The publications also gave stu- 
dents with a flair for writing or 
photography a chance to sharpen 
their skills while keeping other 
students abreast on news. 

The new bright spot was the 
formation of ECOS. Its efforts 
brought recycling to campus and 
taught all students the importance 
of saving the environment.

1991 was a very successful 
year for the publications. The 
yearbook staff was composed 
of about 10 students. Each was 
dedicated to their job, whether 
it was taking pictures, writing 
stories, or compiling layouts. 
The staff also participated in 
numerous campus events, 
such as portrait taking at Par- 
ents' Weekend. The Yama- 
craw staff is very proud to 
present the 1991 yearbook to 

the students.

could submit their work 
whether it was a romantic

students were encouraged to 
submit their work. 

The last of Oglethorpe's 
publications is the student 
newspaper — The Stormy Pe- 

trel . Every two weeks, a new 
edition of the paper was deliv- 
ered hot off the presses, and 
students flocked to see the lat- 
est news on Oglethorpe's 
sports and organizations as 
well as opinions on such inter- 
esting events as the Gulf War.

Besides having a wide array 
of social clubs and service or- 
ganizations, Oglethorpe has a 
number of honor societies. 
Two organizations that held 
initiations last Spring were 
Phi Alpha Theta and Alpha 

Phi Alpha Theta is Ogle- 
thorpe's history honorary. To 
be eligible for membership in 
Phi .Alpha Theta. a student 
must have achieved at least a

cluded Angle Chandler, 

Debbie Shreve, Robin Rowc, 
Cathy Appling, Charlton 
Walker, Archella Pavlisko, 
Brent Johnson, Chris Ponder, 
and Dave Fischer who served 
as President. The club's advi- 
sors were Paul Hudson and 
Dr. Brian Ladd. 

Alpha Chi is another of 
Oglethorpe's honor societies. 
The club's purpose is to pro- 
mote academic excellence 
among college and university 
students. Inducted in the 
Spring were Deborah Balmes, 
Camilla Cruikshank, Jennifer 
Flamm, Misty Gonzales, Amy

Black Student Caucus,

They all deal with politics in 
some form or another. 

Black Student Caucus, a 
fairly new organization at 
Oglethorpe, was founded with 
the goal to improve the lives of 
blacks at Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity and the surrounding com- 
munity. B. S. C, as the club 
is known, held meetings every 
other Thursday throughout 
the school year. The club's 
members were responsible for 
the Springfest party that was 
held in the Bomb Shelter dur- 
ing Springfest. During the 

past year the club also pre- 
sented a certificate of appreci- 
ation to Vivian Marshall who 
works in the Business Office.

past year included the Gulf

Chiaroscuro. Oglethorpe's 
Art Club, started two years 
ago under the direction of 
Lloyd Nick. The club was de- 
signed for anyone who creat- 
ed, enjoyed, or appreciated art 
of any kind, whether it be a 
painting, a piece of music, or 
a sculpture, or anything else. 

For 1991, the club's high- 
light was definitely the four 
day art show held in the Great 
Hall of Hearst. The objective 
was to show the community 
art created by Oglethorpe stu- 
dents, faculty and staff. At the 
end of the four days, there was 
a judging of the best exhibit 

and three winners were select- 
ed overall. 

However, the community 
was not left out of the judging. 
Chiaroscuro gave the opportu- 
nity for all visitors to the show 
to try to guess which exhibit 
would win the contest. The 
winner of this game got a free 
dinner for two at a dining es- 
tablishment in Buckhead. 

Chiaroscuro Co-Chairman 
and graduating senior Naomi 
Walker admitted that the pri- 
mary goal of the club, both for 
this past year and for the com- 
ing year, is to grow. "The cam- 
pus needs to know more about 

it." says Naomi. She credited 
the success of the club, howev- 
er, to the dedicated students 
involved. They were able to 
work well together and act as 
a team. 

People may become more 
familiar with the term Chiar- 
oscuro. The club recently had 
a banner put up in the cafete- 
ria. The banner, made by 
Wendy Sullivan, was an effort 
to make the community more 
awareof the club. However, in 
the coming years. Chiaroscuro 
is sure to grow.

Where did religion and the 
community intersect this past 
year? On Tuesday nights, of 
course! This is when Ogle- 
thorpe Christian Fellowship 

OCF met throughout the 
year and discussed concerns of 
college students and other in-

what the Bible had to say 
about these topics. To add to 
these discussions, OCF invited 
guest speakers and missionar- 
ies as well as the Oglethorpe 

In addition to these discus- 
sions, OCF participated in 
several other activities such as 
their small group Bible stud- 

ies, the clubs annual retreat to 
Jackson, GA, and the service 
projects at the Marion Manor 
Care Home. To help coordi- 
nate all of these events and ac-

role on Oglethorpe's campus. 
This could easily be seen

Rotaract is one of O.U.'s 
service clubs. It was open to 
anyone who was interested in 
service to the school and the 
community. In the fall, Rota- 
ract held their annual Trick-

from the surrounding neigh- 
borhood came to Traer dormi- 
tory to go trick-or-treating on 
Halloween night. Rotaract

In the spring, the club's 
members did several service 
projects that included plan- 
ning parties for children at the 
Children's Hospital and at the 
Council for Battered Women. 
Rotaract also helped out at the 
YWCA and the local Humane 
Society. Between all these pro- 
jects, these devoted Ogle- 
thorpe students still found 
time to work at Soup Kitchens 
in midtown Atlanta and visit 
a nearby Nursing Home to

Academics plays an impor- 
tant role in the life of an aver- 
age O. U. student. After all, 
most students are here for the 
education. Hence, it is not sur- 
prising to learn that a large 
portion of the campus organi- 
zations deal with academics. 
These clubs provided students 
with like interests the opportu- 
nity to get together and learn 
things that were not always 
taught in the classrooms. 

The Accounting Club had a 
productive year that started 
way back in the fall with a re- 
ception at Dr. Middleton's 
house. The get-together was 
not only for O.U. students, but 
also for corporate recruiters 
and accounting firm represen- 
tatives. This gave the students 
and the recruiters a chance to 
get to know each other infor- 
mally before the hiring pro- 
cess began. 

In the spring, the club invit- 
ed several speakers to come to 
the group's meetings. Among 
these privileged guests were 
John Dykes, Vice-President of 
Finance for Engraph, Inc. and 
Mark Adams, controller, and 
Bill McKee, Director of Bev- 
erage Products, both of Sun- 
tour Water Group. 

In April, several members 
of the club got an opportunity 
to visit the public accounting 
firm of Deloitte and Touche, 
one of the Big Six accounting 
firms. The year concluded, as 

it began, at Dr. Middleton's 
house, with the annual spring 

The Young Professionals 
Club had a prosperous first 
year. After organizing in Sep- 
tember, the club had several 
meetings and speakers. They 
also helped the Career Plan- 
ning and Placement Office 
with the widely popular Ca- 
reer Day. 

By far the most popular 
event the Young Professionals 
Club sponsored, however, was 
the pie-throwing contest in the 
academic quad in March. In 
this gala event, students, or 
weenies as Dr. Hetherington 
would say, got a chance to 
avenge the long drawn out 
days of class by throwing whip 
cream pies at the likes of Dr. 
Dean Tucker, Dr. Heth- 

erington, and a few other dedi- 
cated O.U. faculty and staff 

Another popular academic 
club was the English Club. 
This organization was not just 
for English majors, though, as 
anyone was more than wel- 
come to join. The club kicked 
the year off with a Halloween 
party and poetry reading un- 
der Hermance Stadium. For 
Valentine's Day, the club as- 
sembled to hear and read 
poems and other works of lit- 
erature that were parodies on 
love. Finally in April, the En- 
glish Club voted for the recipi- 
ent of the Pierian Award. This 
coveted award goes to the Hu- 
manities Professor who most 
deserves recognition.

Oglethorpe Student Associ-

In 1990 and 1991 students 
saw a wide variety of perform- 
ances at Oglethorpe. Groups 
ranging from the Players to the 
Dancers performed for stu- 
dents at various campus events. 

Led by their new director, 
Lee Bogus, the O. L. Players 
began their season with the fal 

production of The Real Inspec- 
tor Hound followed by the 
spring performance of Travel- 
ler In the Dark. Not to leave 
out the child in us all, though, 
the Players also performed the 
fairy tale production Story 
Theater in Febuary. 

Drama lovers got a special 

treat in 1990 — for the first 
time ever, the drama honorary 
Alpha Psi Omega performed 
their own showing of Actor's 
Nightmare. Lee Bogus hopes 
Alpha Psi's performance can 
be repeated next year and soon 
become an Oglethorpe tradi-

Music fans were certainly 
not disappointed tinis year. 
The University Singers and 
the Brass Ensemble perform- 
ed throughout the year includ- 
ing concerts at the Boar's 
Head Ceremaoy, and at the 
University's Harpsichord ded- 
ication. They also helped the 
spirits of students at Ogle- 
thorpe Day with the "Star 
Spangled Banner" played to 
honor those men and women 

fighting in the Persian Gulf, 
and then completed the pro- 
gram with the rousing 
"Stormy Petrel March." 

What if a student did not 
want to go see performances of 
music or of drama, though? 
The answer to this question 
became clear in 1989 when 
Vanessa Bozeman formed the 
Oglethorpe Dance Co. The 
Dance Company completed 
their second season of jazz 

dance by performing at nu- 
merous Oglethorpe basketball 
games, the homecoming pep 
rally, as well as at the Night 
of the Arts. The team also per- 
formed there own production 
in April. 

All of these clubs did an out- 
standing job on performances 
this year, but with the talent 
they possess, they will have no 
trouble topping their produc- 
tions in the coming year.

^ Secn^ 

The Greeks settled them- 
selves off campus in time for the 
beginning of the year rush weetcs. 
After successful weeks for all, the 
pledges found themselves with 
many new friends on Bid Day. 

The Greeks held their normal 
round of parties. SAE had its Box- 
er Party, and Chi Phi continued its 
Halloween Tradition. Both KA 
and Delta Sig celebrated their new 
houses with parties. 

The organizations also kept 
themselves busy preparing for 
their formals. Each fraternity and 
sorority organized a dance, trip to 
the beach or both. 

The year peaked with the an- 
nual week of events known as 
Greek Week. Greeks were amazed 
to discover that for the first time 
ever, two fraternities, Chi Phi and 
SAE, tied for first place.

Rush 1990 was a 
huge success as far as 
both the sororities and 
all the fraternities were 

Chi Omega and Tri 
Sigma had their tradi- 
tional two rush parties 
and a preferential par- 
ty. The rush parties 
gave an opportunity for 
the rushees to meet the 
sisters of both sorori- 
ties. In turn, the sisters 
performed skits and ex- 
plained sorority life to 
the rushees. 

During rush for the 
Delta Sigma Phi frater- 
nity, there were volley- 
ball games, movie par- 
ties, bowling, and trips 
to Stone Mountain. 
Rush Dinner was at the 
Gyro Wrap. SAE had 
two joint parties with 
Chi Phi during rush 
week. For open house, 
they had casino night, 
and for their dinner 

they served barbecue 
and Brunswick stew. 

In addition to the 
parties with SAE, Chi 
Phi took some prospec- 
tive rushees to Stone 
Mountain and also en- 
tertained them with a 
stripper. A rib dinner 
was enjoyed by the 
rushees at the Chi Phi 
house. Kappa Alpha's 
open house consisted of 
meeting the rushees 
and showing the video 
of last year's Old South 
ball and trip to Fort 
Walton. The Rush Din- 
ner was held at Eric 
Gregory's home. Lasa- 
gna, garlic bread, and 
salad were served to 
ravenous rushees. Over- 
all, everyone had a 
great time getting to 
know the new students, 
and the rushees enjoyed 
their taste of Greek Life 
at Oglethorpe.

Thoughts on 
Sigma, Sigma. 

Sometimes we 
stand outside life 
waiting for a door 
to open. Hoping the 
person behind that 
door will let us in 
and be our friend. 1 
was once on the 
outside, until a door 
opened to me. Be- 
hind it I found not 
only a friend, but a 
new world; a Sister- 
hood - Tri Sigma. 
Now I stand behind 
that door, on the in- 
side, helping to 
open it for someone 
else who stands 
where I once stood.

Greeks Know 
How to Party 

If there is one thing 
that Greeks are icnovvn 
for, it is their ability to 
let loose and party. 
While the sororities just 
have mixers, the frater- 
nities have many par- 
ties throughout the 

Delta Sigma Phi has 
only two big bashes 
throughout the year. 
The first is their Pledge 
Party. The other big 
bash is the infamous 
(and invitation only) 
Toga Party. Rodney 
Drinkard reflects, "If 
you have ever attended 
the Delta Sigma Phi 
Toga Party, you know 
what a real party in the 
sheets is." 

SAE's parties are at- 
tended school wide, 
aside from the few ex- 
ceptions who are not in- 
vited. Traditionally, 
SAE has a Thursday 
night groove at the 
house. In addition, the 
Shipwreck party, the 
Boxer Rebellion, the 
Kindergarten Mixer, 
and the Hobo party are 
annual events at SAE. 

Chi Phi is well-re- 
nowned for having par- 
ties at which those at- 
tending party in excess. 
The Halloween party is 
a yearly festivity. This 
year, the Chi Phi's also 
had a few generic par- 
ties, a Hat Party, and, 
of course, the after 

spring break blues par- 
ty: the Horny Little Chi 
Phi party. Every 
Wednesday night at 
Chi Phi is hump day 
movie night. 

The KA"s are reput- 
ed to have parties where 
lots of Doors and Stones 
is played, and random 
people are seen hugging 
stereo speakers on the 
ground. The KA's be- 
gan the year with an 
Elvis party, followed b\ 
the KA Corral, two Ini- 
tiation parties, a Pledge 
Party, a Tailgate Party, 
and the Peace Party to 
celebrate the end of the 
war in the Gulf. Did 
anyone see Jim Morri- 
son there? 

Part of the crowd. A fraterni- 
ty can be a whole set of friends 
for pledges. Billy Stalker has 

KA little sister Misty Gon- 
zales as a new pal. 

Way Down South. One of the 
KA's favorite things to do is 
to sing a rousing rendition of 
"Dixie." The new pledges get 
the chance to try their voices 
for the first time at the Bid 
Day party. 

Welcome Aboard. Another 
one of the KA's favorite 
things to do is to welcome 
their new pledges to the fra- 
ternity by "shampooing" 
them with beer and serenad- 
ing them with that great song 
of the South.

Week '91 

April 7th-15th 
Greeks were going cra- 
zy. For most Greek or- 
ganizations at Ogle- 
thorpe, Greek Week 
should be renamed Hell 
Week. Exams are fast 
approaching, term pa- 
pers are due. and the 
Greeks on campus have 
no time for school for an 
entire week. 

Much preparation 
and thought goes into 
the quest for the Greek 
Week trophy. Each fra- 
ternity struggles to 
prove that they are the 
most well-rounded 
Greek organization. 
Skits, sings, and 
speeches are sometimes 
prepared weeks in ad- 
vance. Not only do 
these activities require 
practice, but they also 

involve much creativity, 
and each fraternity did 
a commendable job. 

Sunday night Greek 
Week begins with each 
fraternity's sing and 
speech. As everyone is 
well aware, the skits are 
performed on Wednes- 
day night. This year the 
skits were extremely 
creative, with Chi Phi 
capturing Best Skit for 
their version of Star 
Trek, the Search for the 
Eternal Keg. 

During the week, 
there are numerous 
sporting events, from 
teams sports such as 
football and softball to 
individual sports like 
racquetball, tennis, 
golf, and ping pong. 
Other popular Greek 
Week events included 

darts at the Chi Phi 
house, and the famed 
midnight bowling. 
Thursday night 
brought the Greek 
Week Anchorman com- 
petition. Kappa Alpha 
claimed victory for the 
fourth year in a row. 
Chris Lenz has added 
this illustrious achieve- 
ment to his resume. 

On Saturday, Greek 
Week events last much 
of the day. In addition 
to races, there is a soft- 
ball toss, a long jump, 
and other sporting 
events. The Best-Dres- 
sed Greeks and the Best 
Chariots are paraded 
on this day. There arc 
also some humorous 
competitions such as 
the Bat Man, the three- 
legged race, and of 

Checking things over. Stasi 
Bara did an excellent job of 
organizing and overseeing 
Greek Weeic events for Inter-

version of "The Flinstones."

Each fraternity put 
forth a great effort and 
this fact was evidenced 
all through Greek 
Week. In addition to 
preparing for and at-

each fraternity had to 
spend a great deal of 
time preparing for the 
social events. However, 
this hard work paid off 
in victory for Chi Phi 
and SAE. Hopefully, 
next year's competition 
will be just as exciting 
as this year's. Maybe it 
will even be less violent 

than this year's. As

The people were truly the 
stars in the never ending drama 
which made up campus life. The 
students, faculty and staff all 
played a part in making the year 
what it was. 

As the freshmen wondered if 
they would ever get used to col- 
lege, the sophomores rejoiced at no 
longer being freshmen. The jun- 
iors were happy to finally be 
upperclassmen, and the seniors be- 
gan to wonder, "What do 1 do 

The students managed to bal- 
ance clubs, jobs, sports and aca- 
demics and still have time to really 
enjoy themselves. After all, half of 
college is having fun. 

The faculty continued to de- 
vote themselves to the students in 
a way seldom seen at colleges. The 
staff and administration rounded 
out the picture by keeping life run- 
ning smoothly.

Friends Forever 

One might ask, why are sen- 
iors always smiling? The an- 
swer is simple. For four years 
seniors have been meeting new 
people and making new 
friends. From these encoun- 
ters with other people, most 
every student has found a 
group of friends which they 
can call their own. A group 
which shares common ideas, 
good times, bad times, and all 
the other adventures in be- 

Everyone arrives at college 
and immediately becomes 
friends with their roommate, 
at least on the surface. But af- 
ter awhile, once students get to 
know each other, which is not 
too hard at a small school like 
Oglethorpe, and once they've 
spent quality time at social 
events with other people, heart 
warming friendships between 
two, or twenty, people are 

These are the types of 

friendships which last forever, 
through thick and thin. It is 
safe to say that most students 
entertain adult level friend- 
ships with people by the time 
they are seniors in college. 

Hopefully every senior will 
look back at their college days 
in twenty years or so and will 
be able to say that they still 
keep in touch with their col- 
lege buddies. Activities in col- 
lege which are exclusively 
friendship related are never 

Goofing Off. Friends Scott Piehl, Jeff

forgotten; all night talk ses- 
sions, special outings, late 
night pizza runs, and of 
course, weekend road trips 
with a bunch of people 
crammed into one car. 

As the old saying goes, 
friends are forever, and with- 
out fail, the friendships made 
between students here at 
Oglethorpe will last forever.

If course Little Five Points. 
re the areas most frequented 
[y Oglethorpe students. 
J Going to parties held by the 
raternities on campus are also 
lopular forms of entertain- 

ment for students. Ever\ 
weekend one of the four fra- 
ternities represented at O. U. 
tries to have some sort of party 
in order to give students some- 
thing to do on the weekends. 
There are theme parties, 
dance parties, and of course 
there are exclusive seasonal 
closed parties. 

Some students get the han- 
kering for something a little 
bit more than a party when 
free time is available. Many 
seniors report that several 
times a year they take off on 
a road trip to different areas 
of the SouthEast. People have 

been known to take off for 
Florida. New Orleans, and oc- 
casionally Athens. Georgia 
v\ h e r c U G A is located. 
There's just something about 
spontaneously taking off with 
a group of friends and driving

"Sometimes there is just not a 
lot to do on campus, so I head 
for Athens with friends to go

Besides the parties, road 
trips, and night clubs which 
entertain students, some find 
that it is nice just to relax in 

their room and listen to music, 
read, or just hang out with 
friends. "Thai's the good thing 
about the weekend, I can go to

There comes a point in time 
when every student gets a little 
frustrated with living on cam- 
pus. Some people get sick of 
their roommates, some pray 
for privacy, and some just 
want to be able to do as they 
please without having to worry 
about an RA lurking around 
every corner. The most popu- 
lar option is to move off cam- 

The idea of having a place 
to call home is very pleasing to 
students. There are no housing 
regulations, such as visiting 
hours, alcohol policies, and 
damage deposits to deal with. 
Also, some students find that 
it is cheaper, and there is more 
privacy when they move off 
campus. Zois Spiliotis. a sen- 
ior, stated that "I left the 
dorms because I couldn't 
stand listening to my room- 

Visiting Campus. Chris Lenz, who 
lives off campus, often returns to cam- 
pus just to see what is going on. 

Study Room. Joe Shelton studies in 
his dorm room where it is nice and qui- 

mates rap music, now I can go 
into my own room and listen 
to whatever I want to." 

But of course, there are also 
some disadvantages to moving 
off campus. There are some 
unexpected expenses that 
come into play. Things such as 
furniture, beds, housekeeping, 
and the meal plan are all in- 
cluded in the cost of on cam- 
pus housing. Living on campus 
also gives students easy access 
to University facilities. For 
some students these little ob- 
stacles are easily overcome, 
but for others these things 
could perpetuate unnecessary 
hassles. Steve Green, a senior, 
believes that "Living on cam- 
pus is good for several reasons, 
one being that you hear about 
more campus events, and you 
get to see more people." 

The housing department at 

Oglethorpe has tried to pro- 
vide suitable and comfortable 
housing for students at a com- 
parable price to off campus 
residency. During the fall se-i 
mester of 1990, a survey was 
sent out to students to try to 
assess what types of com-i| 
plaints students had about on 
campus housing. The goal of 
the survey was to find out what 
needed to be changed to en- 
courage students to continue 
living on campus. 

The debate over whether or 
not to live on campus is one 
that every student gets caught 
up in. Some people feel that 
living off campus is much 
more rewarding. Then there 
are others who prefer to live on 
campus where everything is 
accessible. Overall, it depends 
upon what ever makes the stu- 
dent happy.

Its Study Time 

It's nice and warm outside, 
the semester is winding down, 
and spring fever has set in. No 
one in their right mind would 
rather be studying than froi- 
icicing in the sun somewhere in 
Atlanta. But there is time for 
play, and there is time for 
study. Being a senior is nice 
until you realize that there are 
certain things you absolutely 
must do in order to graduate 
on time, or at least soon there- 

Oglethorpe has provided 
each and every student with a 
rigid core program to com- 
plete as well as a very defined 
program to go along with eve- 
ry major. By the time one is a 
senior, most of the core pro- 
gram is completed and courses 
pertaining to one's major area 
of study are emphasized. 
These classes, being of utmost 
importance concerning major 
fields, are quite difficult and 
often take a lot of time and ex- 
treme effort on the students' 
part. Studying is the only way 

to perform well. Besides, 
that's why one comes to col- 
lege: hopefully, to study and 
become somewhat of an expert 
in a certain field of interest. 

Some students report that 
they have a certain technique 
which enables them to skim 
material for class, then cram 
for the test. Others say that 
they must keep up daily by be- 
ing prepared for class, taking 
notes, and studying the mate- 
rial a few days before tests, 
rather than cramming, in or- 
der to do well in courses. Steve 
Green, a senior, says that he 
enjoys "studying every day, 
occasionally blowing off week- 
ends, in order to make good 

Where do seniors study? 
Many find the atmosphere of 
the library pleasant and quiet. 
There are library staff mem- 
bers on duty to help students 
find what they need. Other 
students report that they like 
to study in their room, at the 
stadium, or even in the aca- 
demic quad. No matter where 
one studies, every student 
knows that it is an important 
thing to do, if one expects to 
graduate from such a presti- 
gious school as Oglethorpe 

Computer Blues. Steve Green studies 
hard using the periodical computer in 
the library.

Out Of Here!! 

As soon as seniors begin 
their last semester at Ogle- 
thorpe, if not sooner, they be- 
gin to wonder just exactly how 
they can go about getting a 
job. The process of finding em- 
ployment which suits the 
needs of aspiring businessmen 
and women is very frustrating 
if one has no idea where to 
start. Students can always call 
home, but often even parents 
can't be of much help because 
they don't know what oppor- 
tunities are out their for new 
college graduates. 

Luckily. Oglethorpe has 
provided students with a won- 
derful career resource, the Ca- 
reer Planning and Placement 
Department. Located in the 
student center, where most 
students frequent at least a 
few times a year, this depart- 
ment offers counselors, mate-

rial, pamphlets, books and 
seminars on how to get a suc- 
cessful job upon graduation. 

Katherine Nobles, the Di- 
rector of Career Planning and 
Placement, is a great person to 
discuss future career plans 
with. She is always willing to 
help students with resumes, 
interviews, and seminars. She 
uses her vast knowledge of 
what businesses look for in 
new professionals, and she 
helps students to organize 
their search according to what 
she believes will help them get 
a job. She provides students 
with seminars to attend, and 
she encourages every student 
to take part in the Career Fair 
which is offered every year. 
Mrs. Nobles helps students 
make the right contacts, and 
she gives them a definite push 
in the right direction. 

The Career Planning anc 
Placement Department alsc 
has a career opportunities bul- 
letin board set up for students! 
to utilize. This bulletin boarc 
lists potential employmenl 
opportunities ranging frorr 
the local level to state level. 
There are also listings of pari 
time, full lime, domestic, and 
professional careers. 

As seniors make their final 
choices about what they wani 
to accomplish after college, it 
is quite beneficial to take ad- 
vantage of what Oglethorpe 
has to offer as a source of aid. 
The Career Planning and 
Placement Department was 
set up to help the students, and 
it has been overwhelmingly 
successful. It definitely beats 
reading just the classified in 
the newspaper and praying for 
the know how to get the job.

It is May of 1991 and 
graduation is on the horizon 
for seniors at Oglethorpe. 
Many students have found 
jobs, some are preparing to 
travel to various parts of the 
world, and others are just 
ready to take a break. Even 
though every student is 
about to embark upon their 
path of life, there is one 
thing that every person 
thinks about before he grad- 
uates. Where has all the 
time gone? 

It seems like only yesterday 
we were freshmen. Everything 
was new and exciting, and 
nothing in the world could stop 
us from going out and experi- 
encing life and its" adventures. 
There were early morning 
classes to attend, there was the 
dreaded Freshman Seminar, 
and of course there were peo- 
ple to meet. 

It takes a lot of determina- 
tion and motivation to make it 
through college. Everyone en- 
tered college with some idea of 

what they wanted to do with 
their life. Students had to dis- 
cipline themselves enough to 
go to classes and learn. 

Then there was the social 
side to college. There were 
dances, parties, and various 
festivals to go to. The variety 
of social activities available to 
students gave them opportuni- 
ties to meet other people and 
to form meaningful groups of 
friends. As everyone knows, 
college is not just academics, 
it is a total life experience. 

The four years of college go 
by so quickly. One minute stu- 
dents are anxious eighteen 
year olds, and with a blink oi' 
the eye. they are graduating 
seniors. There is a lot to be said 
about college. The college en- 
vironment teaches students 
how to attain knowledge, but 
it also teaches students alot 
about life

Go to class or sleep late? Decisions, Decisions! 

Every weekday morning a 
momentous decision confronts 
each Oglethorpe student: Do 
I get up and go to class today 
or sleep late and suffer the 
consequences'? Of course, ev- 
erybody knows that class at- 
tendance is vitally important, 
but the old mattress requires 
nothing of us. Going to class 
means listening to lectures. 

taking notes, being called on, 
and sometimes struggling 
through a pop quiz. For some 
reason, the clock just looks a 
lot better when the hour is in 
double digits. 

Many of us lie in bed unde- 
cided for a while, weighing the 
possibilities. To lie or to learn 
— which will it be? We may 
fall asleep trying to decide; 

then the big question is an- 
swered for us. Sometimes our 
consciences force us to get up; 
however, and we rush to get 
ready because we've wasted so 
much time deciding. After 
hurrying to class, we often 
spend the whole time fighting 
to stay awake and wonder 
what use it was to come. 
Hopefully, the professor no- 

tices and all of our trouble 
earns us a few brownie points 
at least. 

Most of us manage to get 
ourselves to class when we re- 
ally need to be. so we deserve 
a day off every now and then. 
If our grades are good, why 
shouldn't we be allowed to 
take it easy sometimes?

times we hope that things will 
be better than we expect them

Creative people learn to 
make the most of their dorm

liven up a dreary dorm consid- 
erably. A new paint job can 
make a huge difference too. 
Sofas and bean bag chairs add 
to the dorm's comfort and 
make it more like home. 

Deprived of a kitchen, many 

students at Oglethorpe invest 
in microwaves for the extra 
nourishment college students 
need. Coffee makers help, too. 
Some people can't function 
without their caffeine. 

Like it or not, the dorm is

roommates refuse to go to bed 
before 4:00 a. m., use your 
toothpaste, and leave empty 
ravioli cups sitting around, 
they can, with a little training, 
become your closest friends. 
j Of course, everything is not 
jail bliss, especially when four 
people need to take a shower 
before 8:30 a. m. Roommates 
have a knack for finding your 
pet peeves: changing the chan- 
nel during a soap, leaving the 
stereo on all the time, and bor- 
rowing stuff until your room 
looks empty. 

Let's not forget, though. 

that every now and then a 
roommate knows the answer 
to your Genetics question, or 
might take time to help you 
practice Spanish verbs. 

So even if your roommate 
wears all your clothes, plays 
country music, or has strange 
people over at all hours, you 
somehow manage to get along, 
even if only in a you-don"t- 
bug-me-I-don't-bug-you situ- 
ation. Some people may even 
try to bug each other, but 
aren't there enough bugs (and 
ants, and spiders ... ) in the 

Getting Ready. Bathroom-hogging 
can strain roommate relations, as Zoe 
Lombard demonstrates.

can be hard to live with. "Why don't

Adjusting to Oglethorpe 

With each new semester, 
new students arrive through 
the gates of Oglethorpe. Al- 
though the transition is fairly 
easy for most, there are some 
adjustments that incoming 
students must make. 

Entering freshmen have 
more new things to adapt to 
than transfer students do. 
They must learn how to deal 
with the temptations of college 
life and how to manage their 

time to allow for some study- 
ing between social engage- 
ments. Freshmen find an 
abundance of people to meet, 
roommates to learn to get 
along with, and professors to 
try to please. Acquiring a 
taste for O. U. food is yet an- 
other required change for a 
new student's survival. Many 
people find that there's no oth- 
er food quite like it. 

Transfer students have an 

advantage because they ha\ 
already been exposed to co 
lege life, and many aspects ( 
college are universal. Howei 
er, Oglethorpe has som 
unique qualities which no or 
can know until they come t 
school here. 

New students quickly se 
that the Oglethorpe campus 
a friendly place, and the sti 
dents are very willing to facil 
tate their adjustment.

Major Decisions 

Deciding what field to ma- 
jor in is one of the most impor- 
tant choices a college student 
must make. Majors determine 
careers, which can dictate a 
graduate's lifestyle. Ogle- 
thorpe's liberal arts curricu- 
lum offers a variety of possible 
majors, and therefore attracts 
a diverse student body. Eve- 
rybody from Science majors to 
Philosophy majors can find 
others to identify with on the 
O. U. campus. 

For those students who are 
undecided, their options are 
many. The core classes Ogle- 

thorpe requires them to take 
help students to explore differ- 
ent subjects. A particularly 
enthusiastic professor can in- 
spire a student to declare that 
subject as his or her major. 
Students frequently surprise 
themselves when a dreaded 
class becomes their favorite 

Changes of major are not 
rare at Oglethorpe. People 
who have always thought that 
they wanted to be teachers 
may become disenchanted 
with education and decide 
that they'd rather study eco- 

nomics. This flexibility can be 
comforting sometimes, but it's 
imperative to make the con- 
version before too many hours 
are lost. Few people can af- 
ford to make a career of col- 

Whether you choose Eng- 
lish, business, or chemistry as 
your major, the world needs 
well-educated people in all 
professions. The most impor- 
tant thing to do is find some- 
thing you enjoy doing and just 
get to work! 

Determination. Michelle Fowler is 
content with her major and doesn't 
mind working hard. 

Frustration. Kim Kirner contem- 
plates a change of majors. 

Major Decisions 129 


Each day of an Oglethor- 
pian's life he is different from 
the day before. Changes are 
constantly occurring within 
and without college students. 
School can change a student 
significantly. He enters with a 
certain mentality and prospec- 
tive goals for his life, and by 
the time graduation arrives, he 
may have made a complete 
turnaround. But that's what 
college is for. 

One effect of attending col- 
lege is that students become 
much more frugal with 
money. When mom and dad 
pay, things are very different 

from when the student foots 
the bill. A college student 
wouldn't consider buying ge- 
neric things or Cost Cutter 
brands if it is somebody else's 
money, but when it's his, he 
wouldn't think of paying for 
anything more. Experiencing 
poverty at college teaches stu- 
dents to manage their money 

The independence college 
requires changes students too. 
They now have the freedom to 
struggle with beliefs they've 
always accepted and decide 
if they're really valid. Do 
babies really come from the 

stork? What does the Tooth 
Fairy do with all of your 
teeth? These are some pro- 
found mysteries a student can 
uncover when he has the free- 
dom to make own deductions 
about the world. 

Maturing is one of the most 
important transformations 
people undergo at college. 
Students enter Oglethorpe as 
silly little underclassmen, but 
they're expected to be mature 
adults when they graduate. 
This is one of the more diffi- 
cult changes of life, and some 
people have to stay in school 
longer than others to accom- 

plish this one. Eventually it 
does happen though. 

If people are to grow, they 
must make and accept 
changes. College is a place 
where many momentous and 
necessary changes occur. Al- 
though the time at Oglethorpe 
lasts just four short years, the 
changes that take place during 
that time are many. When stm 
dents leave O. U. with degrees 
in hand they're very different 
people from when they ar- 
rived, but they will still contin- 
ue to change. Change never 

Campus Changes. Improvements 
like volleyball courts are introduced to 
attract students to the dorms.

Living in Atlanta 

For man\ students, one of 
the reasons for coming to 
Oglethorpe is its close proxim- 
ity to Atlanta, one of the up- 
and-coming cultural hubs. In 
spare time, perhaps on the 
weekends, there's plenty to do. 
For instance, if art is a per- 
son's amour, he might want to 
visit the High Museum in 
downtown Atlanta. Many 
prominent artists come to the 
High with their newest exhib- 

The outdoorsy type student 
would probably enjoy Pied- 
mont Park. It's a fun place to 
throw frisbees or footballs or 

to just walk around. While 
outside, the .Atlanta Zoo is a 
good place to go. It's a lot of 
fun, and they have great sou- 
venir cups. 

To get a real taste of Atlan- 
ta though. Underground At- 
lanta is a must. The "town 
center" has over 100 specialty 
stores, a food court, and 22 
restaurants and nightclubs. At 
Underground, Heritage Row 
is an interesting place devoted 
to the history of Atlanta. Also 
nearby is the four story World 
of Coca-Cola with the world's 
largest collection of Coca- 
Cola memorabilia. If people 

don't enjoy themselves at Un- 
derground, the\"re either no 
fun whatsoever or they hail 
from Edmington. (If you don't 
know what's there, ask a Ca- 

For those who enjos the 
bars or restaurants at Under- 
ground, Buckhead, which is 
right up Peachtree Street from 
school, is a fun place. In Buck- 
head, there is a wide diversity 
of night-life hot spots. 

If the Omni is too far or too 
expensive, there's plenty of 
good local bands that play in 
and around Atlanta. The Cot- 
ton Club and The Chamelion 

Club usually have good bands 
for a nominal cover charge. 
Creative Loafing is always a 
good reference to check for the 
best bands performing any- 

While living in .Atlanta, 
Oglethorpe students should 
never be wanting for things to 
do. The city is always bustling 
with activity and entertain- 
ment. So students ought to 
take the time to get off campus 
and enjoy what Atlanta has to 

Night Life. With the setting sun. At- 
lanta changes from a thriving business 
center to a energetic night spot. Both 
aspects of the city are responsible for

Petrel Personality 

When surveying the stu- 
dents of Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity, one characteristic stands 
out: diversity. Although our 
school is small, we have a very 
varied student body. From 
geeks to Greeks, we have a lit- 
tle bit of everything, and the 
combination of all of these 
make up O. U.'s Petrel Per- 

One contributing factor to 
the variety of students at 
Oglethorpe is the man\ differ- 
ent cities, states, and countries 
from which we originate. 
There are students here from 
all over the United States and 
all over the globe, which fact 
in itself distinguishes some Pe- 
trels from the others. Despite 
the realit> that a substantial 
percentage of Oglethorpe's 
enrollment is made up of stu- 
dents from metropolitan .At- 
lanta, this common factor is 

about the only thing that asso- 
ciates them. Atlantan"s cer- 
tainly can't be stereotyped. 
People from Sandy Springs 
have a different perspective 
from students from Lilburn. 

The assortment of interests 
we find at Oglethorpe is an- 
other component of the diver- 
sity we enjoy. Some students 
seem to live in the library, 
while w e wonder if some 
others ever crack a book. 
Some Petrels are very environ- 
mentally conscious, and some 
are service-oriented. Some 
folks do nothing but party. 

The individuality among 
Oglethorpe's enrollment 
makes our campus an interest- 
ing place. However different 
we may be. we're all part of 
the Petrel Personality. "It 
takes all kinds" they say, and 
if that's true, we've surely got 

The Real Thing. Kent Anderson por- 
trays the petrel in its true form. Dur- 
ing every home basketball game, he 
cheers on the team as the school's 
mascot "Petev".

Friendly Folks. The annual Fall Jam 
brings many students to Traer Dorm 
to eat. play volleyball and socialize. 
Brandon Powell. Kmi Walls, Tina 
Hans, Tracey Rodgers. Elizabeth Pat- 
rick, and David Neuberry take a 
break from the festivities to catch up 
on each other 

Sharing. The Trick Or Treat m Traer 
never fails to bring out the generous 
side m the residents of Traer Hall. Ev- 
ery Halloween, students, like Sheila 
Grice, sit at their doors, and hand out 
candy to local children. 

Bookworm. Many students find that 
they spend hours in the library. John 
Morris settles in and quickly becomes 
absorbed in his books. 

Petrel Personality 135 

Eating Out 

Although the cafeteria pro- 
vides students with sumptuous 
meals every day of the week, 
sometimes they feel adventur- 
ous and dine out. 

Where do they go? For 
those Oglethorpians who en- 
joy Italian food, Azio's in 
Buckhead is a popular spot. 
The restaurant overlooks 
much of Buckhead, and the 
food is great. Another great 
Italian eatery is the Spaghetti 
Factory located downtown. It 
looks like a factory on the out- 
side but the inside is quite ele- 
gant with an old trolley car in 
the middle of the restaurant. 
At the Spaghetti Factory, a 
delicious meal is about $5.00. 

For good pizza, many peo- 

ple go to either Fellini's or the 
Mellow Mushroom, both lo- 
cated in Buckhead. At both 
places, the pizza is excellent 
and not expensive. 

For those that love spicy 
foods, the Mexican Two Pesos 
restaurant is a popular place. 
The food is cheap but good. In 
addition. Two Pesos is home to 
the Monster Margeurita. The 
many El Toro's around town 
also offer excellent Mexican 
food at very reasonable prices. 

If they want a bit more am- 
bience with their chicken 
chimichanga, they might opt 
to dine at Rio Bravo. Rio Bra- 
vo has moderately priced 
Mexican cuisine and is located 
in the heart of Buckhead. 

The King and I, located 
only two miles away has be- 
come known throughout At- 
lanta for its Chinese and Thai 
food. Many students frequent 
there so often that the owner 
knows them by name. 

Alas though, some people 
are die-hard fast-fooders. 
Those who fit into this catego- 
ry have probably been down- 
town to the Varsity. The Var- 
sity offers greasy but delicious 
fries and burgers and boasts 
about being one of the original 
fast food establishments. 

If fine dining is an Ogle- 
thorpians' pleasure, and he or 
she has plenty of cash, he or 
she probably enjoys the Bar- 
ber Shop, located right down 

Peachtree Road. The Barber 
Shop has delicious steaks that 
customers can cook them- 
selves. If people want to go all 
out, Dante's Down the Hatch 
is probably their best bet. 
While Dante's is expensive, 
the fondue cooking is beyond 

Whatever a student's plea- 
sure, there is bound to be a 
place to satisfy his or her pal- 
ate. So when the monthly 
check from the parents comes 
in, students should give Ser- 
vice America (and them- 
selves) a break and eat out, if 
they can choose between the 
many restaurants. 

The Legend. Home of the Frozen Or- 
ange, the Varsity's greasy food has be- 

come famous. Robbie Moore and 
Mike Jones enjoy it so much that they 

are willing to drive twenty-five min- 
utes for a Varsity lunch.

Behind The Scenes 

Did you ever stop in the 
niddle of the academic quad 
r the coed quad and just take 
I look around you? If you 
lave. I bet you noticed just 
low beautiful the campus at 
bglethorpe really is. 

Besides the Old English 
jtyle architecture and the air 
tf history that surrounds the 
iniversity, there is a lot more 
the aesthetics than meets 
,he eye. All of the buildings 
ire clean, well kept, and are 
'ree from any major deteriora- 
ion. The grounds are free of 
itter, the grass is a vibrant 
.hade of green, and the par- 
cing lots and roads contain no 
Tiajor obstacles to deal with. 

One may ask who is respon- 
;ible for keeping Oglethorpe 
;o lovely? It is not the faculty; 

it is not the admissions coun- 
selor; it is the maintenance 
staff. Often the members of 
the maintenance crew go un- 
recognized as being major 
contributors to the beauty of 
the environment that 
surrounds the campus. At the 
crack of dawn, five days a 
week, the maintenance crew is 
out cleaning up trash, taking 
care of maintenance prob- 
lems, and keeping up with 
weekly housekeeping duties. 
This is an important job that 
many people take for granted. 

So next time you notice how 
nicely trimmed that big oak 
tree next to Hearst Hall is. 
think about the people behind 
the scenes that take care of the 
grounds at Oglethorpe. 

Another group of people 

employed by Oglethorpe that 
goes unappreciated at times is 
the Service America Staff. 
Employees of Service Amer- 
ica are dedicated to keeping 
the students of Oglethorpe 
University well fed every day. 
Three times a day there has to 
be a nutritious meal prepared 
for students to consume. 
Many people criticize the 
menu, but what they don't re- 
alize is that a lot of thought 
goes into the weekly choices of 
entrees. It is often hard to feed 
such a large quantity of people 
three times a day. But the staff 
members who work in the caf- 
eteria get things done, despite 
what people say. Service 
America is constantly consid- 
ering student suggestions, and 
they try to come up with 

theme meals to add a little va- 
riety to things. 

In essence, the Service 
America staff is very impor- 
tant to Oglethorpe. Over the 
last few years, the service has 
gotten more efficient, and the 
food has gotten better. Some 
people don't appreciate that. 
There's a lot more to keeping 
a student's belly full than what 
one might think. So. next time 
you enter the cafeteria, don't 
complain about the lunch spe- 
cial, just be glad that the Ser- 
vice America staff is there to 
take care of you. Its a lot bet- 
ter than having to drive to the 
store, get food, and heat it up 
in a microwave, now isn't it? 

Welcoming All. Larry Miller, a Ser- 
vice America employee, says hello and 
asks for a student I. D. from all who 
enter the cafeteria. 

Behind The Scenes 141 

The Ideal Professor 

Different types of students 
have different views of what 
the ideal professor is like. The 
more studious student enjoys 
the demands of a difficult pro- 
fessor. Numerous chapters of 
reading and novel-length term 
papers don't bother this type 
of student. He is an.xious to 
learn, even if it means that he 
must endure some degree of 
mental anguish in the process. 
A challenging professor is the 
best possible kind for such in- 

On the other hand, the fun- 
loving student, for whom 
learning is just a coincidence 
(if it happens at all), cringes 
at the thought of being en- 
rolled in a tough professor's 
class. He avoids the demand- 
ing professors with great de- 
termination, taking Saturday 
classes if he has to. The more 
human professor appeals to 
students of this philosophy. A 
good sense of humor and a laid 
back perspective on life are 
characteristics of the less en- 

thusiastic learner's ideal pro- 

Oglethorpe has an abun^ 
dance of good professors, some 
no nonsense ones who the stu- 
dious seek while the party peO' 
pie avoid, and others whose' 
classes are so entertaining thai 
would-be class cutters even at- 
tend. With each class a stu- 
dent takes, he discovers more 
of what he likes in a professoi 
and what he doesn't like quite 
so much. Everybody lives and 

Lining them up. Dr Picciotto. one of 
Oglethorpe's most popular professors, 
has a crowd waiting to see her. 

Eager to help. Dr Blumenthal. Cal- 
culus professor, encourages frustrated 
students to visit his office if personal- 
ized instruction is needed. 

The Emperors of Economics. While 
Dr. Hetherington and Dr. Shropshire 
offer different approaches to the study 
of economics, both are well- 
liked by students for their ability to 
enliven class.

What should I take? Dr Kathy

quently confronlcd with this question 
from advisees. Paul Kane can't decide 
if he should take the Plato course after 
spending some much time studying 
that philosopher in his Aesthetics 

Lending a hand. Dr. Shropshire well 
understands the difficulties involved 
in trying to arrange class schedules. 
Hence, he offers his assistance and 
recommendations to one of his favor- 
ite business/behavioral science advi- 
sees, Gabrielle Galvin. 

Advising Students 

Okay, it's not one of the 
more glamourous aspects of 
professorship, but advising 
students is a pivotal process 
in the college experience. 
Students, with the aid of ad- 
visors, must decide what to 
major in, what classes to 
take, and what career field 
they would eventually like 
to have. 

Dr. Kathy Coers advises 
mainly philosophy majors, 
with a sprinkling of psychol- 
ogy majors. Dr. Coers says 
that advising is "sometimes 
a mechanical matter, and 
sometimes a lengthy pro- 
cess." Some students are 
well aware of which classes 
they want, and Dr. Coers 
usually lets them go, if their 
direction is right. Dr. Coers 

says that she tries to assess the 
personalities of her students to 
determine which courses 
would be best suited to them. 
Over in the Economics and 
Business Department, Dr. 
William Shropshire does a lot 
of student advising. Although 
Dr. Shropshire has over 25 ad- 
visees, he finds that most stu- 
dents only come in at preregis- 
tration lime. According to 
Shropshire, few students come 
to Oglethorpe with a business 
major, but many change ma- 
jors to business, especially 
former Biology/Pre-Med stu- 
dents. When asked if he has 
ever counselled students to 
change majors, Shropshire re- 
plied affirmatively. "Students 
sometimes major in business 
because they think they ought 

to in order to get a job," ex- 
plains Shropshire. "Unfortu- 
nately, they end up disliking it 
or doing poorly." In these 
cases, he suggests a change of 
major. Dr. Shropshire also 
mentioned thai only two or 
three of his advisees each year 
go on to graduate school di- 
rectly after college. Most busi- 
ness majors get a job after col- 
lege and go to graduate school 

Overall, student opinion 
about the helpfulness of advi- 
sors is favorable. Catlin Way, 
who is a Political Studies ma- 
jor, is advised by Dr. Joseph 
Knippenberg. Catlin raved 
that Dr. Knippenberg "has 
been an incredible help with 
making career decisions," and 
that "he always has sugges- 

tions to make and has his eyes 
and ears open for opportuni- 
ties for his students." Catlin 
changed majors from Interna- 
tional Studies to Political 
Studies upon the advice of Dr. 
Knippenberg. Jennifer 
Crouse, whose advisor is Dr. 
Linda Taylor, has an individu- 
ally planned writing major, 
which causes her to have to do 
internships and take classes at 
Emory. During her internsh- 
ips. Dr. Taylor took the time 
to meet with Jennifer every 
other week to offer advice. 
Jennifer insists that Dr. Tay- 
lor is "always concerned and 
careful to help you make the 
decision you want to make." 
And that is precisely the pur- 
pose of advising students!

The Stormy Petrel Soccer 
squad put together a great sea- 
son, despite what could have 
been hampering obstacles. 
First and foremost, the team 
transition of working under a 
new coach could have caused 
problems in terms of playing 
style and key plays. Although 
it takes players time to adjust, 
this year's squad adapted 
quite well to the leadership of 
Coach Brett Teach. His style 
of coaching proved successful 
because even though they end- 
ed the season with a 4-11-2 re- 
cord, they finished the season 
with a first place champion- 
ship in the Dekalb County 
Tournament. Injury after in- 
jury of broken toes, torn liga- 
ments, and knee injuries kept 
the players away from quality 
playing/practice time. "Even 
though injuries affected our 
team," said Coach Brett 
Teach, "we are very pleased 
with their attitude and work

proclaimed midfield Samson 
Desta. This was his second 
year playing for the Petrels, 
but he has been playing ever 
since elementary school. He 
started out this year playing 
center, then half, and by the 
end of the season, he was 
playing stopper. "Next year. I 
want to play any position, just 
as long as I get on the field and 
see some action. 1 would like 
to get a feel for everything." 

This year has been quite 
eventful for Desta. He im- 
proved 50% and has become 
more aggressive and a team 
leader. While playing defense 
for the first time, he was asked 
to do a lot of different things, 
but he responded well and 
strongly. He made the transi- 
tion from offense to having a 
bigger role for defensiveness. 
Samson, while playing, ac- 
quired two surprises: a broken 
toe and the honor of being 
named the Most Valuable 
Player. "It wasn't that Sam- 
son was a poor player, who de- 
veloped into and average play- 
er: he was a solid role player 
who developed into an impact 
player. The latter is more dif- 
ficult," commented Coach 

Samson would like to thank 
Coach Teach for bringing the 
new program and his style of 
positive teaching to Ogle- 
thorpe. Samson and his coach 
have a close relationship, and 
he feels that he played better 
because of the fact that he 
considers Teach his friend as 
well as his coach.

The Lady Petrel Volleyball 
squad stormed its way to its 
fifth consecutive twenty win 
season. The crew finished the 
regular season 25- 1 3, with big 
wins over the University of the 
South, Covenant and Emory. 
The victory over the Univer- 
sity of the South was particu- 
larly satisfying as the ladies 
rebounded from a 14-9 deficit 
in the third game to win the 
match 17-15 and sweep the fu- 
ture CAC foe. 

The annual Phoenix Cup 
Tournament marked the sea- 
son finale for the squad. The 
tournament was held at Spel- 
man College and included 
Flagler, Wesleyan, La 
Grange, Spelman and Ogle- 
thorpe. At the conclusion of 
round robin play, Flagler and 
Oglethorpe were first and sec- 
ond respectively. In the cham- 
pionship match, the Lady Pe- 
trels fought extremely hard 
but finally could not contain 
the powerful Flagler attack. 

"The ladies played their 
hearts out, even more than 
they've done all year," said 
Head Coach Jim Owen. "It 
would be nice to end the sea- 
son with a win, but our girls 
played hard enough to deserve 
a victory." The Lady Petrels 
were led offensively this sea- 
son by senior Sami Bashlor, 
who finished third in the na- 
tion with 4.6 kills per game. 
She was also named the team's 
co-MVP, along with Jennifer 
Marine. Marine set an OU re- 
cord with a 96% career serving 
mark. In addition, she was 
named to the GTE Academic 

All-South Team. The final se- 
nior, Wendy Smith, served as 
co-captain on the team and 
was second on the team in 
blocks. She was also nomi- 
nated for the GTE Academic 
All-South. Smith also picked 
up the Coach's Award. Junior 
Tracy Larson, finished ninth 
in the nation in defensive digs 
with 4.7 per game. She led the 
team in service aces with 56, 
and was named the "Stormiest 
Lady Petrel." Jill Reiss was

She started every position, and

This season marked the fi- 
nal season for Jim Owen as

Lady Petrels this season having led 
them to exactly 50 wins and only 
19 losses. After transferring in as 
a junior. Sami has certainly left 
her mark on the program. In just 
two seasons, Sami moved into sec- 
ond place on both the All Time 
"Kill" list and for blocks. Sami fin- 
ished third in the nation in kills per 
game at 4. 6. This season Sami led 
the offensive attack from her out- 
side position. "She was the player 
we went to to put the ball into the 
floor for us," comments Coach Jim 
Owen. "Sami forced the opponents 
to double block her and focus their 
entire defense on her, and then she 
would beat them. The overwhelm- 
ing attention placed on her by the 
opponents created many oppor- 
tunities for her teammates to step 
up and find the holes in the defense 
and really put pressure on oppos- 
ing defenses." 

"I was very pleased to be a part 
of the program, which was in a 
transitional period. It was a very 
rewarding experience to be a part 
of this growing program. 1 can 
honestly say that taking part has 
contributed to the strong affilia- 
tion toward the school that I feel. 
I've also made life long friends!!" 
explained Sami. 

Sami was nominated for All 
South Honors and was honorable 
mention on the All-Region Team. 
She was on the Phoenix Cup All 
Tournament team as both a junior 
and senior. As a junior, she was the 
Offensive Player of the Year and 
was awarded co-MVP award along 
with fellow senior Jennifer Marine 
this year.

Yo! Coach! For the past two years 
Coach Bob Unger has been quite suc- 
cessful with both teams and is eager 
for the next season to start. "It was en- 
joyable working with the runners. We 
had a number of highlights through- 
out the season." 


A special award is given each 
year to the runner, or runners, 
in this case, with the most team 
spirit, enthusiasm, diligence, 
and sportsmanship. The recipi- 
ents of the "Mother Carey's 
Chicken Award" were Jon Per- 
ry and Maria Moore. No doubt 
these two athletes were truly de- 

Jon has been an avid runner 
for about ten years now. 
Never missing a single 
match, except for his senior year 
when his knee "gave out" re- 
flects how dedicated he is. "I've 
got heart- I've never been ob- 
noxious- I've never quit." Jon 
strongly feels that running is 
based on development: mentally 
and physically. Your body and 
mind must coincide with each 
other if you expect to reach your 
full potential. He considers his 
award as an honor, since he's re- 
ceived it three of four years here 
at Oglethorpe. "It says quite a 
bit about the team effort and to- 
getherness in such an individu- 
alistic sport." 

In just her second season of 
athletics here, Maria has set 
and achieved her goal. Early 
last fall she began to run just as 
a hobby and decided she would 
like to further her running. The 
most enjoyable aspect of being 
on the team was the overall 
sportsmanship of the other 
members, and going to the 
meets were also a lot of fun for 
her. When asked about the 
award, she replied "I was sur- 
prised. It was a really nice 
honor." Maria plans to keep 
running after she graduates be- 
cause it's a great way to keep in 
shape, and she loves it!

Soccer Daze I 

The 1990 season marked 
the second year at Oglethorpe 
for intercollegiate soccer com- 
petition in the women's divi- 
sion. The program, just re- 
cently brought up from the 
club level, showed signs of suc- 
cess, but their winning spree at 
the beginning oi' the season (3 
straight wins) was marred by 
several team player injuries. 
For instance, Becky Marasia, 
senior team captain, was out 
for a majority of the season 
due to a knee injury compli- 
cated by ligament problems. 
Jennifer Amerson, also a 
senior team captain and the 
Petrels highest scorer, fiuclua- 
ted in and out of playing time 
with her injury. 

Even though injuries hin- 
dered the teams" performance, 
due to the fact that the players 
were constantly being shifted 
around to fill the open posi- 
tions (usually ones that they 
had never played before). 

However, it didn't disrupt any 
of the teammates attitudes. 
They continued practicing 
and repacing the injured 
players' positions. It was a 
team effort with everybody 
working toward the same goal. 
This season was the first under 
the guidance of Coach Brett 
Teach but the second playing 
in the NCAA Division III. He 
had hoped for a successful 
"winning" season with the Pe- 
trels, but settled for a "com- 
petitive" one, defeating Wes- 
leyan College once, Agnes 
Scott and La Grange College 
twice. The season ended with 
a 5-8 record. The Most Valu- 
able Player award went to Jen- 
nifer Amerson, who scored 1 5 
goals, even though she was in- 
jured for a good part of the 
season. Vicky Perterria, soph- 
omore co-captain, received the 
Coach's Award for her out- 
standing performance in the 
defensive backfield.

Carol Payne is a sports fan- 
atic. She's played six different 
sports all together, but soccer 
has been the sport she enjoyed 
most. Even though she's played 
sports all her life (soccer since 
she was 8), she has never played 
defense until this year, which 
was a big change because offen- 
sive positions require one to be 
small and fast, which she is. A 
defensive player is usually more 
aggressive and not afraid to 
make contact. She's still "a bit 
baffled" as to why Coach Teach 
switched her over to defense. 
During the season, she was swit- 
ched around from the forward 
offensive wing to midfield and 
eventually to full-back. "The 
team as a whole changed a lot 
because we lost some players; 
therefore, we had to shift posi- 
tions and were playing tough 
teams. We ended up concentrat- 
ing more on the defensive end 
rather than the offensive end, ie: 
scoring," stated Carol when 
asked about how she felt about 
the 1990 season. Coach Brett 
Teach feels that "Carol Payne is 
one of the hardest working 
players I ever coached. She 
thrives on competition and has a 
sincere love for the game of soc- 
cer. She was a creative and ener- 
getic player who will be very suc- 
cessful in her future endeavors." 
Despite the fact that she'll be 
graduating, which is a plus, she's 
sad that she won't be able to im- 
prove with the team as she gets 
better and better. Carol would 
also like to add, "I'm also sad 
that I won't be able to get Mike 
Mitchells' pants all the way 
down to his ankles!!"

Once again spring rolled

blooming, the trees sprouting, 
and the birds continually chir- 
ping. Nothing this spring 
seemed out of the ordinary 
with the exception of several 
new changes in the spring sea- 
son's soccer team. 

Several new renovations 
made a mark on the soccer 
season. Topping the list was 
the establishment of a new

taught at La Grange College.

Petrels would play; they were 
cut from 1 5 to 1 3. One change 
that could not be controlled 
was the number of injuries 
that the squad encountered. 
Because of the problem with 
injuries, the players had to be 
shifted around a lot. However, 
with all these changes, the 
team never lost sight of their 
goal and that was to end the 
season successfully.

Berkshire, "has been in our 
half-court offense and im- 
proved defense. Those areas 
must stay strong for us to have 
a successful season," com- 
mented Head Basketball 
Coach Jack Berkshire at the 
beginning of the season. The 
Petrels stormed the season to 
end up 17-8, an outstanding 
record with numerous awards 
won and basketball stars born. 

Oglethorpe's tradition of 
being both very strong aca- 
demicalh and athleticall> has 
paid off. This concept has 
helped to lead them to an out- 
standing season. The Stormy 
Petrels have accepted an invi- 
tation to join the College Ath- 
letic Conference of NCAA 
Division III. They will join 
with the prestigious ranks of 
University of the South and 
Centre College as they begin 
to play in the conference in the 
1991-92 season. As a result of 
Berkshires" dedication and 
disciplinary attitude, he (with 
the help of associate Coach 
Jim Owen) successfully 
coached the Petrels to a #8 
NCAA Division III ranking. 

This was a prodigious achieve- 
ment for the team; unfortu- 
nately, it wasn't a high enough 
ranking for a tournament spot. 
This \ears' team consisted o{ 
five top players from last 
years' squad which created the 
background necessary for a 
solid team. 

As a whole, the team ac- 
complished a lot this season, 
under the guidance, hard 
work, and dedication of Jack 
Berkshire, head coach, and 
Associate Coach Jim Owen. 
The teams" enthusiasm was 
evident on and off the court, 
and they seemed to have eve- 
r\ thing in synch. Their success 
depended on a "team effort" 
with each player contributing 
to the effort. Everyone coun- 
ted on everybody else to do 
their job. "I'm proud that wc 
have reached that mark," said 
Berkshire, "and I appreciate

his perimeter shot. During his sopho-

the 1 2th player to enter the 1 . 00(1

starter, who as a senior leads the 
team in scoring assists, steals, and 
seven other statistical categories, 
KerrNwas awarded "Academic All

Academic Ail-American Team for 
this season. Evert has also been 
nominated for the "All-South" 
team and nominated as an NCAA 
Division III All-American candi- 
date. It's really hard to make the 
first team on the .Mi-American be- 
cause, as a pla> er. you have to have 
high statistics. During the Stormy 
Petrel Classic, he earned the Most 
Valuable Player award and aver- 
aged 25.5 points during the tour- 

Evert's leadership and fierce 
competitive spirit have served as 
his trademarks. He steadily im- 
proved in every area as a player 
throughout his career. "He's al- 
ways been able to score off his pen- 
etration, but this year he's im- 
proved his spot-up shooting." com- 
mented Head Coach Jack Berk- 
shire. "Now he'll come around the 
pick and bury the jump-shot." 

"Basketball is a team sport, and 
to be successful, everybody on the 
team must contribute. I've been 
fortunate enough to be associated 
with this great group of guys, such 
a quality program and an excellent 
coaching staff." commented Evert.

To The 


As the basketball season 
progressed, a group of athletes 
grew in their involvement and 
recognition around school. In 
only three years, the cheer- 
leaders had grown into a 
twelve member co-ed squad, 
led by a true coach. 

The hiring of Allen Hark- 
ness as cheerleading coach 
sparked remarkable things for 
the squad. A former college 
cheerleader, he taught the 
group new stunts, cheers, and 
finally a routine like those 
used in competitions. "He 
helped a lot," explained Brett 
Duncan. "Not only could he 
tell us what to do, since he's so 
talented, he can show us." 

Come February, life began 
to get hectic for the squad. 
Among other things, they 
found it difficult to find a 
practice spot. They occasion- 
ally even found themselves in 
a student center conference 
room. "It was quite embarras-

Despite the difficult prac- 
tice environments, they were 
prepared to do their part for 
Oglethorpe Day, as this year's 
theme was athletics. After 
decorating the gym with signs 
and hundreds of balloons, they 
finished off the day's presenta- 
tion with a routine to the 
"Stormy Petrel March." 

Homecoming was the cli- 
max of the season. Once again, 
the balloons came out in full 
force as the cheerleaders and 
OSA spent hours decorating 
the campus with four hundred 
balloons. At the first annual 
pep rally, they performed their 
long practiced routine to per- 
fection. Finally, they finished 
off the season with a rousing 
game. "A homecoming game 
with a great crowd was the 
best possible way to end the 
season," concluded senior 
Misty Gonzales.

Through a very wet spring,

though their record was 3-12, 
Coach Mike Mitchell felt that 
they accomplished a lot. "We 
had a very tough schedule and 
some key people injured, but 
we established a team attitude 
at the beginning of the year 
which helped us make it 
through the year." The atti- 
tude that Coach Mitchell 
spoke of was teamwork, and it 
became a necessary aspect to 
the team. Hal Royer, Robbie 
Romeister, and Trug Vo con- 
tributed from the beginning of 
the season until the end, and 
through their consistency they 
established themselves as the 
frame work of the team's spir-

Mitchell and by his team-

proved player. He improved 
tremendously, turning into an

tude frustrated opponents and in-

HaKs leadership was invaluable to

player has to play with heart. A 
coach IS lucky when he finds a 
player that plays with a lot of heart 
and a lot of head; Hal Royer has 
set the standard for those to fol- 
low," commented Coach Michael 
Mitchell when asked about Hal's 
performance during the 1991 sea- 

Hal has played tennis for two 
years and during that time, he 
played anywhere from the #2 posi- 
tion to the #5 position; depending 
on the daily team situation. "Ten- 
nis has been frustrating because 
there's a lack of commitment. I'm 
certainly not the best, but as I see 
It. my attitude and consistency of 
showing up was the reason I was 
chosen to be spotlighted." said 
Hal. One of the reasons for a lot 
of the lackadaisical attitudes was 
because of conflicts in work, 
school, practice and game time. 

"Despite the lack of team com- 
mitment in the last couple of 
years," said Hal. "I've enjoyed my 
tennis experience here at O. U." 

Tennis 167 


The 1991 tennis season was 
definitely a learning experi- 
ence for several reasons. One 
of the major factors was be- 
cause six out of the nine 
players were freshman. But, as 
the season progressed, so did 
the girls" performances. Their 
efforts and dedication to not 
only winning but improving 
their tennis skills improved 
tremendously. The Lady Pe- 
trels were led by Most Valu- 
able Player: Beth Harris. She 
led the team in singles and 
doubles victories. Melissa La- 
mar, the Most Improved Play- 

er, finished third in singles and 
second in doubles victories. 

The tennis teams were 
pleased to gain the services of 
USTA Pro Dunn Neuge- 
bauer. Coach Neugebauer

While some people have the 
stamina, others tend to put it 
off. For the Men's Track 
Team, their dedication paid 
off with a successful season. 
As the members of the squad 
strived to "beat the clock," 
personal goals were achieved, 
and the team's performance 
on the whole improved. 

During the season, the men 
re-established school records 
in the 100 meters and discus. 
Stephen Summerow set rec- 
ords in both the 100 meters 
(10.7) and in the 200 meters 
(22.4). The new discus record 
was set by sophomore Marty 
Adams; the new mark 155-2-

only one week of practice in

Briesemeister scored 60 points 
on the season in dual meet 
competition for an average of 
1 2 points per meet (incidental- 
ly, it takes 72 to win a meet.) 
He produced the best per- 
formance in the long jump, tri- 
ple jump, and highjump; 
against Davidson. In the Mor- 
ris Brown meet, Kevin Keenan 
took top honors in the field 
events in both the high and low 
hurdle races.

meet record beating VIorris

Stephen Summerow has been a 
member of the Men's Track Team for 
only two years, but during that short 
period of time, he accomplished an in- 
comparable amount of feats. For in- 
stance, he led the team with 62'/'2 points, 
which meant that he averaged 10 
points in each dual meet. Stephen, who 
was the captain of the team, set the 
school record for 200 meters with a 
mark of 22.4 during the Morris Brown 
meet. He almost set the longest long 
jump on the squad, but on the last day 
of competition, one of his teammates 
out jumped him. Against Division 1 
Davidson and ACC's Wake Forest, 
Stephen placed 2nd in the 100 meters 
and won the 200 meters. This year was 
also Stephan's second in winning the 
"Petrels of Fire" race held on O.U. day. 

Coach Bob Lngcr indirectly in- 
spired Stephen to become part of the 
newly developed track team season, but 
more directly it was his desire to partic- 
ipate in any "active cardiovascular ac- 
tivity" and a stifled playing time on the 
basketball courts. His favorite event 
was the 100 meters because it allowed 
him to run fast for a short period of 
time; no wonder he broke the record 
and set his own (10.7). "I don't think 
I could perform well on two or three 
miles. I would probably get bored run- 
ning around the track so many times." 
commented Stephen. His motivational 
force and inspiration this year 
stemmed from the death of his cousin, 
PFC Larry Turner Jr. who was like a 
brother to him. ThcN grew up together 
in Macon. Ga. Stephen dedicated the 
whole season to him, and he was out to 
"kick butt." Stephen's motto: "To win 
as an individual is good, but to help 
your team win is the best!!"

Pace Setting 

Oglethorpe's Stormy Petrel 
track teams have come a long 
way from last year's inaugural 
season. The women's team

meet record of 5-0, with wins 
over Morris Brown (twice), 
Spellman, Elon and Fort Val- 
ley State. In addition, the 
women out pointed North

opening relay held at Ogle- 

"In preparation for compe- 
tition, practice was important 
to keep our athletes in shape 
for meets," said Coach Bob 
Unger. Most track members 
found motivation a necessary 
quality to be successful. "You 
have to be ready to come out 
and try your hardest every- 
day," commented Jean 
Faasse. "You cannot improve 
yourself without practicing

meters (60.27) and the 4001V1 
hurdles (69.72). In addition to her 
individually accomplished goals/ 
records, she also shares the triple 
jump record with Dawn Roberts 
and was a member of BOTH relay 
squads which hold the school re- 
cord in the 400M relay and the 
1600M relay. Jean's average 
amount of 1st placings at a meet 
was four, which accounts for her 
remarkable average of 20 points in 
dual meets. The total number of 
points that she earned was 1 18. 

One might begin to wonder what 
sort of motivational force was be- 
hind Jean that compelled her to set 
such high expectations for herself. 
When confronted with a similar 
question. Jean replied. "It's the
