Picture perfect with the gothic buildings -but there's 
so much more -you've got to take a closer look - 
Through the Ix)oking Glass is one wav to discover. 

New horizons. Oglethorpe's bell tower helps to give the school Its special gothic look, 
but it also has beauty in the bells sound: they ring at every quarter hour and at the top 
of the hour there's a special melody that it plays. Shelly Watts and Mona Lisa Hudda get 
a different perspective of the campus when they view it from the top of Lupton Hall. 

The Right Combination. One of the 

unique qualities of a small school is that 
your professors can personally help you if 
you have any problems with their class 
assignments. Here, Dr. Bruce Hethering-

McDaniel how to solve the problem cor-

A story book about the 92 school year. 

Stuffed with pictures of friends and lovers. 
Ten years from now you'll read it cover to cover 
Bringing back memories, you'll cherish forever 

From the school you once lived so near. 

Each school year begins as an adventure 

With everyone having their own expectations 
And even though studying took some perspiration 
U could let loose by what's known as fraternization 

But when "exam blues" came there seemed to be no cure. 

In Wonderland there were so many great things to do, 

- a Chi Phi Halloween jam 

- a dorm room beer slam 

- or an APO helping hand. 
Students had a hard choice to choose. 

But, whatever our weekends had in store, 
on Monday, we all had the same fate 
Class. And for some, that meant being late 
"For a very important date!!" 

Just like the White Rabbit said before.

Helping Hand. Because Patrick knew 
French, he was able to talk with some 
Hatlan boys, even though they spoke a 
Creole dialect. 

Along With the other 13 volun-

patients over a 3 day period, 
mostly unloading supplies and 
helping patients while they wait-

was:"They were shy at first, but to 
be in such poverty, they're really 
friendly. I know some French, so 
it was neat to talk to them."

The sights, sounds, and tastes 
of International night gave the 
evening a texture of intriguing 
diversity. Sponsored by the Inter-

was held September 28 at 7pm in 
the Emerson Student Center. The

music played on native instru- 
ments from such countries as 
Spain. In addition. Oglethorpe 
student Kotaro Tanaka treated 
the audience to Rock n' Roll 
Japanese style. Many dances 
were also performed. An African 
dance and several Japanese 
dances delighted the audience not 
only because of the outstanding 
dances themselves, but also 
because of the colorful, traditional 
costumes of those countries. A 
group from the Philippines 
demonstrated a dance typically 
done by peasant farmers to cele- 
brate the harvest. This dance was 
unique in that it is performed by 
jumping between two long bam- 
boo sticks as they are clanked 
together imitating the sounds of 
the crows.

Student life 


On the eve of All Saints Day. a 
mysterious aura surrounded the 
Oglethorpe campus. The wet. vel- 
vet night was silent except for the 
lonely call of the owl. Then, in 
strange groups they emerged. 
Oddly clad students deserted 
their lodgings and tromped into 
the night only half aware of what 
this evening held in store. 

Some students traveled to the 
annual Chi Phi Halloween Party. 
Although the sounds of laughter 
were heard, the potions of which 
they partook left them with a lack 
of memory at dawn. To solve this 
mystery, these students vowed to 
return next year in a better dis-

the surrounding community. The 
brothers collected food and cloth- 
ing to give to the homeless once 
daylight brought safety. 

To add to the evenings secret 
excitement, a Halloween Jam was 
held in Traer. Students seemed 
normal as they ate and played 
volleyball among other activities. 

Later that night these same 
students donned freakish clothes 
to compete for the best costume 
award at the Halloween Dance in 
the student center. They also par- 
ticipated in such Halloween tradi- 
tions as bobbing for apples. 

Prior to these odd happenings, 
small gouls, goblins, and ninja 
turtles invaded the women's dorm 
Traer to collect candy. The event, 
sponsored by Rotoract, gave 
neighborhood children the chance 
to get a sugar high before the set- 
ting of the sun.

If one were to chance upon the

day night, November 16, he might 
have thought he had stepped 
through a mirror into an alternate 
reality. Poker chips were being 
shrewdly placed amidst the con- 
trast of smiles and grimaces. One 
could also hear the concert of 
people winning and losing. At first 
glance, one might have thought 
that people were betting their 
lives! However, once inside, it was 
obvious this sight was not a hal- 
lucination; it was Casino Night at 

The people were not betting 
their lives, not even real money! 
They were just caught up in the 
spirit of chance. The purpose was 
to gamble the $20,000 given to

money to exchange for raffle tick-

OSA sponsored the event, and 
the whole show was brought to 
OU by the Monte Carlo Produc-

The idea was borrowed from the 
Oglethorpe Alumni, who had pre- 
viously held a similar event for 
themselves. Cliff Barros. chair- 
man of the OSA committee, ran 
with the idea. The committee 
hired the casino company, pro- 
cured a palm reader, and set up 
cotton candy. Then, the OU 
Dancers approached Cliff with the 
idea of performing a show girl-ish 
number. OSA agreed, and Cliff 
hoped that "the coordination 
between clubs will set a precedent 
for future events."

he tradition culiiiuss 

Although it was exam Ume, and 
few students had gone shopping, 
OU officially began the holiday 
season with the Boar's Head Cere- 
mony in Lupton Auditorium on 
December 6. As tradition has dic- 
tated, this ceremony included the 
presentation of the new members 
of Omicron Delta Kappa, the 
annual Christmas concert by the 
University Singers, and the light- 
ing of the campus Christmas tree. 

ODK, a national fraternity for 
students and faculty who demon- 
strate outstanding leadership qual- 
ities, initiated nine members. 
These new members were the fol- 
lowing: Jason Best: Chris Frost: 
Alex Kay: Kim Kimer; Tracy Lar- 
son: Matthew Thompson; David 
Wuichet; Eddie Zarecor: and facul- 
ty member, Anthony Caprio. 

The University Singers, directed 
by Dr. W. Irwin Ray, gave a

mance in many aspects. Accompa- 
nied by the Oglethorpe Recorder 
Ensemble, the Singers and the 
Chorale sang many traditional 
Christmas songs, including "Bring 
a Torch, Jennette Isabella." The 
Singers also invited audience par- 
ticipation on some of the more 
familiar songs, such as "Hark the 
Herald Angels Sing." Furthermore, 
Mark Tubesing, Christen 
Tubesing, and their father Morris 
Tubesing sang "Peace, Peace." The 
most surprising part of the perfor- 
mance was the finale. "Mary's Lit- 
tle Boy Chile" was sung to a calyp- 
so beat while members of the 
Singers played instruments and 
danced in costume. 

The evening ended with the 
lighting of the Christmas tree on 
the bell tower of Lupton and a 
reception in the Great Hall of 
Hearst at which the Oglethorpe 
Stage Band entertained.

For many Oglethorpe students 
and faculty members, the Night of 
the Arts was a special opportunity 
to share their creative talents. In 
the Great Hall of Lupton Hall, 
this annual program, sponsored 
by the English Club and hosted 
by Troy Dwyer, featured musical 
performances, readings of both 
fictional prose and poetry, draw- 
ings, paintings, and photographs. 

Both vocal and instrumental 
performances were given this 
year. Knox Burnette played 
"Autumn" on the guitar, whereas 
Scott Lutz played an original 
piano piece "Out of Autumn," and 
Professor Robert Blumenthal 
played Schubert's "Twelve 
Waltzes" on piano in addition to 
accompanying many vocal per- 
formers. DeShawn Jenkins, 
David Ross, and Sheri Studley 
were the evenings singers. 

The readings consisted poetry

Parents Weekend was filled 
with family fun. This special 
weekend is reserved every fall to 
give parents the opportunity to 
spend time with their children 
while learning more about 
Oglethorpe University and the 
lives the students live day to day. 

Organized by the Community 
Life office, the weekend features 
several events aimed at allowing 
parents to see what life at OU is 
really about. During the afternoon 
of Saturday, parents attended 
OPU (Oglethorpe Parents Univer- 
sity), where they listen and partic- 
ipate in actual lecture classes 
given by the university's profes- 
sors. First, however, parents 
must go through an activity that 
simulates registration while 
selecting the classes they would 
like to attend. 

The late afternoon was set 
aside for families to spend some

the early evening, coinciding with 
a women's soccer team game.

The 1991 World Series was 
perhaps the most exciting in 
the history of baseball. The 
Minnesota Twins squeezed 
past the Atlanta Braves 1-0 on

Game 7 and end baseball's 
most dramatic adventure.

ketball. At the Forum, where 
he played for twelve superstar 
seasons with the Los Angeles 
Lakers, Johnson told 
reporters, "Because of the HIV 
virus I have attained, I will 
have to announce my retire- 
ment from the Lakers today." 

However, Johnson stated, "I 

plan on going on, living for a 
long time." He added that he 
would become an AIDS activist 
and that he would begin a 
campaign for safe sex. 

More than just a basketball 
star who led the Los Angeles 
Lakers to five NBA champi- 
onships, Johnson has been a

person and a role model for

him popular among people all

students, such as Lee McGraw, 
ride their bicycles to campus. 
Most commuters, however, drive 
to the university. 

Given that Oglethorpe does 
have such a large number of com- 
muters who drive and that many 
of the students who live on cam- 
pus insist on driving to Hearst or 
Lupton from the upper quad, 
parking had been the major con- 
cern for commuters. Fortunately, 
John Thames, Dean of Continu- 
ing Education, persuaded the 
administration to transform the 
abandoned tennis courts behind 
Goodman Hall into additional 
parking space in time for the 
spring semester.

Oglethorpe Day has always 
been a time to take a special look 
at the university--it's past, pre- 
sent, and future. On February 
13. student, faculty, and alumni 
all shared in the anniversary cele- 
bration of Sidney Lanier's 150th 
birthday. As an important south- 
ern poet and famous alumnus. 
Lanier's birthday festivities 
focused on a personal perspective 
of the history of the university. 

Through Lanier's experience at 
Oglethorpe (when it was located 
in Midway near Milledge\'ille) and 
his life, the Oglethorpe communi- 
ty gained insight as to what life at 
Oglethorpe was like before and 
during the Civil War Era. Particu- 
larly, many students were inter- 
ested in Lanier's involvement in 
the Thalian Society, and organiza- 
tion still active on campus. He

was recognition of the present 
efforts to preserve history of the 
university. Alumnus Paul Hud-

History at the present Oglethorpe, 
was recognized for his work in 
researching and writing a biogra-

"We won't go back! We 
will fight back!" These 
shouts rang through the 
streets of Washington DC on 
April 5th as at least 700,000 
people gathered to march in 
demonstration for abortion 
rights. The march fell during 
the season when campaigns for 
the November 3rd nation-wide 
elections were gaining momen- 
tum. Organizers hoped the 
widely publicized march would 
secure many Americans' votes 
for Pro-choice candidates who 
would not allow legalized abor- 
tion to be reversed. 

As the mass of demonstra- 
tors slowly approached the 
capitol, the Mall filled with 
people from all over the coun- 
try dressed in mostly white and 
purple. These colors, the same 
ones worn by the early 20th 
Century suffragettes, symbol- 
ized the importance of the 
issue at stake. Both Democrat- 
ic hopefuls, Clinton and 

Photos of Ihe Presidents and Terry Anderson were 
provided by Wide World Photos of the Associated 
Press. The photo of the Pro-choice march was given 
courtesy of Elizabeth Watts. Ms. Watts also con- 
tributed the article about the march. 

Brown, spoke at the huge rally 
that followed. President Bush 
had retired to Camp David for 
the weekend. Other speakers 
included Jesse Jackson, Presi- 
dent of Planned Parenthood 
Fay Walker, and several 1992 
candidates for Congress. 

Several OU students attend- 
ed the march and brought 
back their hope for continued 
legislation to secure women's 
rights to choose. As one of the 
largest demonstrations on the 
capitol, this "March For 
Women's Lives" was a step 
toward that hope. (Pictured 
from left to right are Elizabeth 
Watts, Jennifer Crouse, and 
Paige Mackey.) 


Who's next? The 1992 
Presidential elections heated up 
this spring for both Democrats 
and Republicans. 

Those seeking the Democratic 
nomination initially included 
Jerry Brown, Bill Clinton, Tom 
Harkln, Bob Kerrey, and Paul 
Tsongas. As the semester 
closed, however, Jerry Brown 
and Bill Clinton were battling it 
out on the primary campaign 

trail. While Clinton was suffer- 
ing from an image problem (that 
prompted Time to use him as a 
cover story with the headline 
"Why voters don't trust Clin- 
ton"), Jerry Brown was heralded 
by the press as a "Political 

George Bush also faced com- 
petition in his bid for nomina- 
tion. Pat Buchanan received a 
significant percentage of votes in 

the state primaries, but these 
"protest votes" were not enough 
to keep him in the running. 
However, President Bush also

Welcome home! After 6 
and 1/2 years of captivity in 
Lebanon, Terry Anderson was 
released to US officials on 
December 4. This was the end 
of a brutal hostage ordeal for 
both himself and the United 
States. Anderson, chief Middle 
East correspondent for the AP, 
responded to the question of 

what kept him going by saying 
it was his companions, his 
faith, and his stubbornness. 

He was the longest-held 
Western hostage and personi- 
fied the long-running hostage 
ordeal that haunted two Amer- 
ican presidencies. Anderson 
was the 13th & last American 
captive freed since the Shiite 

extremists began in 1984 seiz- 
ing foreigners in Lebenon to 
drive out Western influence, 
which they claimed corrupted 
the nation. Many Americans 
were tortured, and three died.

ring break 

The one thing that almost every 
student looked forward to during 
the spring semester is spring 
break. By mid-day on the Friday 
before this week-long vacation, 
campus was dead, and students 
were on their way home. Savan- 
nah, Florida, west, or where ever 
they though they could find fun 
and relaxation. 

The students who lived out of 
state used spring break as a 
chance to visit home. Whether it 
was New York, New Jersey, 
Alabama, Missouri, South Caroli- 
na, or Florida, home sweet home 
had a strong attraction for those 
who had not seen mom and dad 
since Christmas.

No matter where they went, 
everyone had great stories to tell

wished the break was still two

ummer graduation 1 992 

Charles Longstreet Weltner 
'48 OU trustee and Justice of 
the Supreme Court of GA, gave 
the address at the August 16. 
1991 graduation ceremony. 
His speech is as follows: 

"Before Va'clav Havel 
became Pres. of Czechoslo- 
vakia, he spoke of the power of 
words. He said: The selfsame 
word can be true one moment 
and false the next, at one 
moment illuminating, at anoth- 
er deceptive ... The selfsame 
word can at one time be the 
cornerstone of peace, while at 
another, machine gun fire 
resounds in its every syllable. 
The point is all important 
events in the real world — 
whether admirable or mon- 
strous — are always spear- 
headed in the realm of words. 
In the beginning of everything 
is the word.' 

The power of words resides 
within several realms where 
words are of first importance, 
(a) One such realm is the Uni- 
versity. The resource of the 
University is words — to pre- 
serve, combine. & compare. 
The process of the Univ is 
words — to examine, debate, 
and assay. The product of the 
Univ is words — to explain, 
instruct, and enable. TTirough 
words, the Univ creates & 
changes many of the standards 
of human behavior. Rarely 
does a person in the Western 
world rise to a position of influ- 
ence without being engaged 
with the Univ & without 
becoming an heir and a con- 
tributor to some power of 
words, (b) A second realm of 
the power of words is the 
Church (a term used broadly), 
where the very concept of 
"word" is an ancient object of 
reverence. John the Evangelist 
began his gospel: "In the 
beginning was the word ... 
The first revelation of the 
Qur'an, recorded by Muham- 
mad, the Messenger of God. 
was: "Proclaim in the name of 

thy Lord ... Who taught (the 
use of) the Pen ..." (Surah 96). 
(c) A third realm of the power 
of words is the Court, which is 
the interpreter of laws. Bishop 
Hoadley once said: "Nay who- 
ever hath an absolute authori- 
ty to interpret any written or 
spoken laws it is he who is the 
lawgiver to all intents and pur- 
poses & not the person who 
first spake them." 

The Court commands & 
restrains public power & pri- 
vate interest. Yet. it has no 
sword & no pvirse. These 
belong to the executive and 

How can the Court stay the 
have of one, & void the act of 
the other? B/c to the Court 
belongs the word. The sword 
may not be drawn, nor the 
purse filled or emptied, con- 
trary to that word. The power 
of the Court is power of words, 
as spoken from its bench and 
inscribed upon its writ. 

The power of words is based 
upon the words of power, (a) 
Words of power signify the pri- 
mary values on which each 

realm depends, (b) The primary 
values are those standards for 
human conduct that are 
demanded by the best of 
human conscience and intel- 
lect, (c) The word that gives 
power to the University is 
TRUTH: the word that gives 
power to the Church is 
MERCY: the word that gives 
power to the court is JUS- 

The power of words will 
endure only so long as the 
words of power reflect what is 
a reality of truth, & of mercy 
and of justice. 

The power of words will 
endure only when the people 
believe in the strength and 
integrity of the three realms, & 
trust the authenticity of the 
words power, (a) University, 
Church, & Court must have 
the strength to protect the 
words of power from corruption 
by others. They must have the 
integrity to assure that the 
realms themselves are gov- 
erned by truth, mercy & jus- 
tice. Their domain will depend 
upon a steadfast watch, within 

& without, against "truth" that 
is false: "mercy" that is cruel; 
& "justice" that is wrong. (b| 
The authenticity of the words 
of power will be accepted in tlie 
same measure that trutli. 
mercy & justice are secure in 
the lives of people, (c) Hollnw 
words will pass away. Honest 
words will stand. 

What this has to do wiili 
you. as graduates, is this: (a; 
The power of the Universitv.l 
Church. & Court is basic 
upon the values that are syin 
bolized by the words of power: 
& is dependent upon tin 
authenticity of those words oi 
power, (b) You have tocla\ 
some of the power of word^ 
that has come to you from tht 
University: & you may acquire 
some of the power of word 
from the other two realms, (c 
Whether the power of word;- 
that now is yours will endure] 
or increase, will depend upor 
the extent to which your life i; 
guided by truth, mercy. & b\

The 9th of May at 9:30ain 
in the Academic Quadrangle — 
that was the beginning of the 
end for the members of 
Oglethorpe University's Class 
of 1992. That Saturday was 
the day of Commencement. As 
the graduates marched in to 
the The Peachtree Bass playing 
"Pomp and Circumstance", 
each student knew that this 
was the last official activity in 
which they would participate 
as a student of OU. 

President Dr. Donald S. Stan- 
ton oilers Lhe welcoming remarks lo 
begin the graduation ceremony, which 
was held in the Academic Quadrangle. 

The program began with a 
welcome by President Stanton 
lollowed by the musical Call to 
Celebration by the University 
Corale. Student Awards were 
then presented by various fac- 
ulty members in recognition of 
outstanding academic as well 
as leadership achievement. 

After the student awards. 
Senior Class President. Randy 
Greer delivered his remarks on 
behalf of the Senior Class of 
1992. The point of his message 
was simple yet important not 
only to the graduates but to 
the audience of parents and 
friends as well,

After listing some well-known 
problems with the university. 
Randy noted. "It is a natural 
human tendency to notice the bad 
and overlook the good." However, 
he admitted that upon reflecting 
on his years at OU he realized 
how insignificant these "petty 
grievances" were and how lucky 
he was "to have attended and now 
be graduating from such a fine 

Greer concluded, therefore, 
that instead of looking for the 
bad. everyone should focus on the 
positive aspects. To emphasize his

with this quote from Henry David

that it was difficult to be innova- 
tive and few can "carry the fire."

August meant it was time to make the summer a memory. 

And to get prepared for our education. 

Back to school to gain some information, 

as well as lots of mental cultivation. 
It also meant that it was a time to be scholarly. 

The curriculum and the core got quite a new design. 
Several changes were made in history class 
And there was even more composition to pass. 
You could learn more esp. through a looking glass 

Would the new core work? The answer is a ? of time. 

Throughout the year, the library was expanding. 

And when it's all finished and through 

There will be twice as much to persue. 

In addition, a 24 hour study room too! 
And the new books made study time demanding. 

Thank your professors, for your education. 
You may think some are "Mad Hatters" 
Or that their lecture doesn't really matter. 
But they deserve a little thanks or some flatter. 

Even if you can't stand them or their examination.

pecial Edition 

Well, it seems Oglethorpe 
students will soon be forced to 
find something else to com- 
plain about. Yes, that's right. 
The university has improved 
the library! Formerly Loury 
Hall, the re-named Philip Welt- 
ner Library is not only going to 
be bigger, it is also promised to 
be better. 

Aesthetically, the addition to 
the building, which covers the 
entire rear and the right half 
(viewed from the front) of the 
building, blends perfectly with 
the Gothic style architechture 
of the main building. Con- 

structed by the Van Winkle 
Company, it was designed to 
add symmetry to the main 

However, the new wing is 
not simply a stately facade. 
Along with expanding the facil- 
ity itself, library services are 
also going to be expanded. 

Many students should be 
pleased to discover that a 
twenty-four hour study room 
will be available. Moreover, 
more books are to be added for 
greater research (and pleasure 
reading) capability. 

As a highlight to the library 

expansion, a new university 
museum was constructed with- 
in the new wing. The museum 
is proud to have attained a 
permanent display. Mrs. 
Dorothy McClatchey graciously 
donated a collection consisting 
of jewelry, textiles, books, and 
manuscripts that she aquired 
through her world travels. 

Among the Jewelry in the 
collection is such diverse 
pieces as a pair of 17th-centu- 
ry turquoise and silver Tibetan 
earings and a 19th-century 
French pin. The museum will 
be opened in the fall.

eek Week 

Originally, a Geek was a 
performer in a circus sideshow 
who devoured live animals. 
Nowadays, Geeks seek their 
fame and fortune by flying 
paper airplanes, building 
bridges out of popsicle sticks 
and glue, writing excruciatingly 
awful opening sentences for 
fictional novels, guessing 
which definition of "sax- 
ifragous" is the correct one. 
and figuring out just who Pro- 
fessor Lee Boggus was pre- 
tending to be this year. (Mary, 
Queen of Scots was succeeded 

by Catherine de Medici.) 

Early in the Spring 
Semester, nearly a hundred 
students and more than half 
the faculty participated in one 
or more of the eighteen (pseu- 
do)intellectual contests held 
during the Second Annual 
Geek Week. The competition 
was keen, as Patrick Grey 
edged Will Corum by four 
points for the individual overall 
title and the RAs overtook the 
Unholy Alliance (the Writing 
Company and the Thalians) in 
the final event to take the 

group crown by three points.

"Throughout all forms of art, we 
become better in touch with the 
brighter capabilities of the mind." 

Mr. Alan Loehle 

hallenge your mind 

Oglethorpe has seen a grow- 
ing interest in developing its 
art department over the last 
several years. Because there 
are a great number of outlets 
for one's creativity. OU has 
tried to offer many different 
types of art classes. With the 
variety of art classes that were 
offered this year, many stu- 
dents were able to challenge 
their minds, tapping into their 
own world of creativity. 

Besides art appreciation, 
one had many choices in devel- 
oping a particular skill in one 

of many arts. Several drawing 
classes were offered to help 
develop an individualized 
drawing style. For example, for 
those interested in sketching 
the human body. Mr. Loehle 
taught figure drawing as a spe- 
cial topics class in studio art. 

Some of the more popular 
art classes were the various 
painting classes. The most 
talked about class was taught 
by Mr. Richard Serrin. who is 
the Artist-In-Resident. Having 
an exhibition, "Paintings by 
Richard Serrin," in the

Fall of 1989. the university 
had the opportunity to contin- 
ue to have Mr. Serrin instruct 
several classes on the 17th 
Century Baroque painting 

Photography classes have 
also been a popular choice to 
challenge creativity. Not only 
did one learn the art of pho- 
tographing an image, but also 
how to develop the picture. 

Oglethorpe has helped many 
to "see" that anything is possi- 
ble when the mind creates it.

Denise Allen 

oslin Geeks 

"I dread Hearst." Spoken 
ike a true "Goslin Geek", 
Jennifer Allen's sentiments are 
shared by most science 
majors. Whether it be 
[chemistry, biology, or physics, 
all science classes are held in 
one building --Goslin Hall. 

Most science majors view 
the fact that Oglethorpe is so 
small that all science classes 
are in the same building as a 
positive aspect of going to 
school here. Denise Allen 
e.vplains. "It's like a big family. 
Everyone goes through the 

same things. We help each 
other by sharing what we've 
learned in classes." 

Moreover, the professors 
know the students and 
sometimes adjust the focus of 
their lessons accordingly. For 
example. Jennifer Allen notes 
that since Dr. Roulison knows 
that biology majors do not 
really care about physics, he 
makes it fun for them. By 
drawing from what biology 
majors already know, he 
relates it physics to make it 
more interesting. 

Furthermore, most science 
majors do not mind being 
called a "Goslin Geek." In fact, 
many proudly call themselves 
that. Students view that name 
as representative of the hard 
work and long hours they 
dedicate to their studies. For 
example, Sean Hyden con- 
servatively estimates that he 
spends 15 to 20 hours a week 
outside class in the labs. The 
refore, for him and for many 
other science majors, being 
called a Goslin Geek is a sign 
of respect. 

Could you help me with this problem? Denise Allen, a biology- major. 
shares infomialion uith a fellow "Goslin Greek" after class. 

A home away from home. The lounge in 
the bottom floor of Goslin is more than a place to 
get a soda. Students, like Mark Caprio. do last 
minute studying and sleeping here. 

Waiting is part of the process. Dr. 

Roulison and some of his students perform a 
physics e.xpeiiment. 


S ummer school 

Few students who take 
summer school classes can 
take advantage of the "lazy" 
days of summer. They struggle 
to keep up with the fast pace of 
the summer sessions. 

Whether it be the mini-ses- 
sions of three and one-half 
weeks and four and one-half 
weeks or the nine week class- 
es, students e.\perience inten- 

sive learning. 

Not only does Oglethorpe 
offer regular classes, such as 
American Literature and 
Statistics, but the schedule 
also offers many special topics 
courses. Students were able to 
take such classes as Special 
Topics in History: Roman His- 
tory, Special Topics in Politics: 
American Political Thought, 

and Special Topics in Litera- 
ture: Southern Literature. 

Classes, however, were not 
the only thing happening dur- 
ing summer school. Summer 
school students also organized 
some social events. Chief 
among these was perhaps the 
Wednesday Softball Madness 
organized by Tim Evans. 

Hangin' out between classes. 

Mark Willlanis (and some anonvinous 
person sleeping on the couch in the 
background) find the Great Hall the 
perfect place to wait for class to start. 

The lazy days of summer? Like 
nian\' other summer classes, students 
in this Southern Literature class are 
not only regular OU students, but 
some come from other schools, such as 
UGA and Sewanne.

Atlanta's skyline is a 
reminder to all who 
live here that the 
thrill of a big city 
can co-exist with the serenity 
of the suburbs, the beautiful 
parks, and our own Ogle- 
thorpe. Preparing ourselves for 
this fast-paced world was 
somewhat simplified with the 
help of the strong professional 
clubs. They helped to lead us 
outside of Oglethorpe's shelter- 
ing walls and into the heart of 
the city. 

According to Dr. Mary Mid- 
dleton, the accounting club 
was "One of the most active 
clubs on campus." Its activities 
began with a fall social that 
introduced accounting majors 
to prospective employers. The 

club also frequented some of 
the "Big Six" accounting firms. 
Graduates were so well- 
prepared after four years of 
networking and interxaews, an 
immediate job placement was 
almost guaranteed. 

Student Education Associa- 
tion (SEA) was also busy. 
Oglethorpe alumni who teach 
in the Atlanta area revealed 
their secrets for successful 
teaching through student 
teaching programs, which 
allowed the education majors 
to experience the rewards and 
the hard work of their future 

The computer club was a 
new addition to Oglethorpe. 
Designed primarily to expose 
members to new software on 

the market, the club also 
focused its attention on dis- 
pelling the general fear of com- 
puters held by the average stu- 
dent. Games and tutorial pack- 
ages for various academic sub-

honor societies 




"'^t tke Top 


There were nine 
lionor societies on 
our campus this 
year. Three of 
these we introduced earlier. 

Omicron Delta Kappa was 
an honor society for Juniors 
and seniors. There can only 
be fifteen student members. 
Significant achievement in 
three of the five areas of 
scholarship, athletics, stu- 
dent government, organiza- 
tions, and publications. 
They inducted their new 
members in December 1991. 

Tap. Tap. Tap! Omicron Delta 
Kappa tapping new members for this 
year. They are happy to be adding new- 
blood to their honor society. 

Phi Alpha Theta, the cri 
teria for entrance was a 
three point overall GFA and 
three point one GPA in four 
history or related courses. 

The business administra- 
tion honorary. Beta Omicron 
Sigma, was also open to only 
juniors and seniors. The 
new members for that honor 
society were inducted during 
the spring semester. 

There was the national 
honorary dramatic fraterni- 
ty. Alpha Psi Omega, who 
was sponsored by Lee Bog- 
gus. To be chosen for this 
honorary points were earned 
by participating in the Play- 
makers. They issued invita- 
tions to five new members 

this year. They also awarded 
a new member the Alpha Psi 
Omega Rookie Award. 

Two honor societies, who 
were not pictured, this year. 
Phi Eta Sigma and Sigma 
Tau Delta. Phi Eta Sigma Is 
an honorary for freshmen. A 
three point five GPA either 
in the first or second 
semester of the freshman 
year was needed to be invit- 
ed to join. New members for 
Phi Eta Sigma were inducted 
during the fall semester of 
their sophomore year. 

Sigma Tau Delta was the 
national English honorary 
on campus. They inducted 
their new members in the 
spring also.

glethorpe has 

always been known 
lor its high quality 
education, yet stu- 
dents still found the time to 
participate in its year-round 
active service organizations. 

Rotoract has been a familiar 
name on OU's campus. The 
annual Trick-or-Treat-in-Traer 
was held this fall for the chil- 
dren of surrounding schools, as 
well as for the "kids at heart" 
on campus. Hospitals, youth 
clubs, and soup kitchens were 
also among the many worthy 
organizations that received the 
volunteer services provided by 

Alpha Phi Omega (APO) was 
also consistent in its service to 
the campus and to the commu- 

nity. Collecting goods and 
clothing in a Trick-or-Treat for 
the poor provided a fun and 
worthwhile time for all. The 
local Boy"s Club and Probe 
fairs throughout Atlanta also 
received the help of these car- 
ing students who clearly live by 
their motto of "leadership, 
friendship, serxlce." 

Tracy Larson, an active offi- 
cer of APO, brought a chapter 
of the "Best Buddies" program 
to campus this year. Best Bud- 
dies is a program designed to 
promote special friendships 
between university students 
and persons with mental retar- 

OU Ambassadors (formerly 
VISTA) focused its service on 
the campus itself. Tours, visita- 

tion days, and phone calls kept 
the volunteers busy all year, 
yet they still strove to recruit 
new OU students as best as 
they could. 

Alcohol and Health Aware- 
ness was designed by a group 
of Oglethorpe's staff and stu- 
dents to make the OU commu- 
nity more aware of the prob- 
lems caused by drugs and alco- 
hol. The group sponsored the 
Great American Smokeout as 
well as other support cam- 
paigns to encourage students 
to lead a healthy lifestyle and a 
"drug- free life." 

Where's mine? Kent McKay shows

AlthoiijJh Oglethorpe 
was recognized as 
being a strong aca- 
demic institution, 
students were partially attract- 
ed to the school by the variety 
of creative outlets available. 
The performing arts, which 
included acting, singing, danc- 
ing, and playing instruments, 
were an essential part of the 
campus atmosphere. 

The Playmakers - Oglethorpe 
University Theatre, directed by 
Prof. Lee Boggus performed 
Moliere's Tartuffe as the fall 
performance. In February. 

Do you trust my pious face? 

Tartuffe (Troy D\VT,'erl convinces Argon 
(Kevin Keenan) of his innocence as 
Damis (Devin Pintozzi) looks on. 

Alpha Psi Omega pcrforiiu-d 
"The Rain of Terror" and 'The 
Happy Journey." two one-act 
plays. Independence by Lee 
Blessing was performed as the 
spring show. 

With all of the Playmakers' 
shows, the audience was sur- 
prised. Along with excellent 
acting, the sets were unique. 
For Independence the audience 
was seated on the stage and 
had the feeling of being inside 
the family living room. 

The University Singers and 
Chorale also had an excellent 
year. Dr. W. Irwin Ray has 
been the conductor of the 
Singers for six years. The fall 
concert. Mostly Mozart, was a 
great success. Those who 
attended, even those sitting in 

the aisles, had an enjoyable 
evening. The Singers per- 
formed at the annual Boar's 
Head ceremony to a full house. 
The spring concert celebrated 
the sesquicentennial of Sidney 
Lanier's birth. The music for 
this concert was commissioned 
for the 1991-92 Singers. The 
poetry of Sidney Lanier became 
the lyrics of the songs. 

The OU Dance Company 
was in its fourth year of exis- 
tence and was stronger than 
ever. They performed at 
Atlantic City Night adding to 
the atmosphere of Atlantic 
City. Also, their performances 
at the basketball games were 
crowd pleasing and greatly

There were many 
active academic 
clubs on campus 
this year. We had 
The Writing Company, The 
English Club. and the 
Oglethorpe Academic Team. 

The Writing Company locat- 
ed on the third floor of Hearst 
was instituted to help students 
in writing papers for all their 
classes. This service was espe- 
cially helpful to freshmen stu- 
dents who are being their first 
major college papers. 

The English Club worked 
at promoting Interest in the 
arts, literature, poetry read- 
ings, and music at their 
meetings. They also chose the 
recipient of the Pierian Award 
which goes to a humanities 


The Oglethorpe Academic 
Team met weekly this year to 
prepare for regular intercolle- 
giate academic competitions. 
Several team members partici- 
pated at every meet. 

Psl Chi the psychology hon- 
orary inducted their new mem- 
bers in early November, and it 
is open to people majoring or 
minoring in psychology. The 
purpose of Psl Chi was to 
encourage, stimulate, main- 
tain scholarship and advance 
the science of psychology. 

Oglethorpe's Alpha Nu 
chapter of Sigma Zeta was ser- 
vice oriented. It Is open to sci- 
ence majors with a three point 
three grade point average in 
science and mathematics 

courses, and a three point zero 
overall average. 

Alpha Chi the primary aca- 
demic honor society is open 
only to juniors and seniors 
who have high scholastic aver- 
ages. These students are rec- 
ommended by Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity faculty for entrance 
into this honorary. They also 
have an annual scholarship 
named for their society. 

These three honor societies 
are also dedicated to aca- 
demics on our campus, they 
are very representative of our 
small campus.

Concentrating on 
the vital issues of 
the day. clubs 
such as the Black 
Student Caucus, the Public 
Affairs Forum, the College 
Democrats, and the College 
Republicans allowed students 
as well as faculty members to 
express their theories and 
opinions about politics. 

The Black Student Caucus 
focused its attention on topics 
relevant to the people of 
African American heritage. 
Open to students of all races, 
this club met to discuss the 
problems among the different 
races and to debate the politi- 
cal issues that directly affect 
the black race. 

The Public Affairs Forum 

was a more informal meeting 
of both students and faculty. 
This group met every Monday 
at noon in the small dining 
room to listen to a presenta- 
tion on such issues as "Why 
there should not be a NOW" 
and "Why the first amendment 
does not forbid state establish- 
ment of religion." After the 
presentation, the group dis- 
cussed various questions 
raised by the subject. 

The College Democrats 
entered their fourth year of 
existence at Oglethorpe this 
year. They participated in the 
political campaigns of candi- 
dates such as Paul Tsongas. 
Although the members all con- 
sider themselves Democrats, 
most members did not strictly 

adhere to the straight party 
platform. In fact. President 
Paul J. Kane said. "Most of 
our members are people who 
hate the Republicans." This 
club met every other Friday at 
noon in the small dining room. 
The College Republican 
went through a reorganizatlon- 
al year. Being out of existence 
for two years, the club had 
some trouble raising member- 
ship. However, as President. 
Kent Mckay looked forward to 
being a strong voice in political 
issues on campus and to offer- 
ing students the opportunity 
to gain information about the 
party's objectives. The Repub- 
licans held several forums for 
various Republican leaders.

The Oglethorpe Chris- 
tian Fellowship was 
a very active club on 
campus and around 
Atlanta. At the beginning of the 
fall semester they held an ice 
cream social so new members 
could meet old ones. They also 
went in a group to Stone 
Mountain for the laser show, 
and other fellowship acti\ities. 
A small group also went on a 
joint retreat with the Emory 
Christian Fellowship. 

They held individual Bible 
studies every Monday, Wednes- 
day, and Thursday with their 
regular weekly meetings being 
held on Tuesday evenings. 
During these meetings they 

presented programs such as 
Focus on the Family, Tyranny 
of the Urgent, Concert of 
Prayer, Foreign Missions, and 
the Power of Prayer. Every 
evening - Sunday through 
Thursday - there was a prayer 
meeting in Emerson Student 
Center next to the mail room. 
The OCF theme for this year 
was "Knowing God". 

They worked with the 
Brookhaven Boys Club- read- 
ing, playing and all around 
helping out.

International Club was 
one of the most active 
clnljs on our laiupus 
this year. International 
Nif<ht was very popular this 
year, and it gave students, fae- 
ully and administrators the 
ehance to experience several 
different cultures at the same 
lime. Not only did they spon- 
sor International Night this 
year, they also brought back 
one of the performers from 
that night. Mauricio Amaya 
played "Music from the Andes"

ter. The International Club

spent a lot of lime baking. 
They sf)ld baked goods during

they also had general bake

sponsored movies on Monday 
nights in the librar\'. 

There were also several lan- 
guage tables offered during 
lunch on Thursdays. The 
French. Spanish. German,

all offered so a student could

among the pieces 
of the game which made one 
club a team — Chess Club. 

The club was re-founded by 
three enthusiastic officers and 
since its re-founding, the orga- 
nization has had a prosperous 
year. The members earned 
enough money for chess sets 
and a tournament clock and 
now have enough game boards 
to accommodate all the play- 
ers; only sometimes there 
weren't enough chess boards.

Another of the philosophical 
clubs on campus is the 
Thalians Society and it is also 
one of the oldest. The original 
Thalians has its own "Hall": 
members had a library, rooms 
to sleep in and of course, 
rooms to be philosophical in. 
Mathew Thompson, co-chair- 
man, comments on the club 
itself: "When I'm in a meeting, 
I look at all the serious young 
men and women intensely dis- 
cussing a topic and I think 
about the serious young men 
and women who stood in 
Thalians Hall in 1835 and 

troubled themselves over the 
same problems ... and I won- 
der if the President back then 
also worried about members 
throwing food." "Why All Antl- 
abortionists should be Chris- 
tian Scientists." was one of the 
topics that Thalians discussed. 
Paige Mackey of Oglethorpe 
Students For Choice presented 
the topic. 

OSFC was formed two years 
ago in an effort to help stu- 
dents become involved in the 
issue. On Saturdays members 
escorted clients of the Atlanta

were being harassed. Execu-

The four publications 
of Oglethorpe kept 
themselves busy 
this year. Whether 
in newspaper, magazine, year- 
book, or television form, stu- 
dents expressed their opinions, 
feelings, and memories and 
recorded them for future years. 
The Stormy Petrel kept its 
reputation of reporting infor- 
mative and moving stories 
while exhibiting students' opin- 
ions of both a factual and a 
controversial nature. Every two 
weeks students could be seen 
reading and discussing the 
articles contained in the publi- 
cation, and the cafeteria was 
often filled with faces hiding 
behind the open papers. The 

Braves' ascent to the World 
Series and the Core Convo 
were among the big newsmak- 
ers of the year. 

The Yamacraw staff kept 
busy as well, for deadlines 
began to appear left and right. 
Dedicated editors, photogra- 
phers, and writers spent many 
anxiety-filled hours planning 
themes, layouts, and an overall 
book of memories to give to 
their fellow students. The 
Yamacraw staff proudly pre- 
sents the 1992 yearbook in the 
hopes that it will be enjoyed by

Leaders at Oglethorpe 
were faced with the 
challenge of organiz- 
ing interesting activi- 
ties. With the implementation 
of the student activities fee. 
OSA including Executive 
Council, Senate, and the Pro- 
gramming Board have been 
able to plan bigger and better 
activities. OSA sponsored a 
new event this year called OU 
Unplugged where everyone with 
acoustics talent was encour- 
aged to come to Traer on Sun- 
day afternoon to perform while 
others chose to listen. This was 
a nice peaceful study break. 

The OSA outdoor movie 
nights were held every first 
Thursday of each month. Cur- 
rent movies such as Awaken- 

ings and City Slickers were 
shown as well as old favorites 
like The Princess Bride and 
Metropolis . 

Atlantic City Night was held 
in November where students 
had the chance of winning "big" 
with the $20,000 they were 
given as they walked through 
the door. Of course this was 
not real money, but it served its 
purpose. Oglethorpians were 
given the chance to pretend 
they were in Atlantic City for 
the night rather than in the 
dining hall. This was an excit- 
ing evening for all. even if they 
didn't win. 

OSA and fy-IA cosponsored 
the Halloween Jam which 
meant double fun for everyone. 
Dinner was served in Traer 

where the annual volleyball 
tournament was held and a 
costume dance was held later 
that evening. The RHA Beach 
Bash was a hit again this year. 

[•(HA was involved with the 
implementation of the universal 
campus phone system and hav- 
ing kitchenettes placed in the 
dorms. RHA has made many 
improvements to the communi- 
ty life on campus by encourag- 
ing participation in the OU 
Does Atlanta excursions. 

On their birthdays, many 
students were surprised with a 
cake and balloons sent by their 
parents through RHA. 

Both OSA and RHA strive 
throughout the year to make 
campus life more enjoyable for 
all Oglethorpe students.

Oglethorpe Expedi- 
tions Unlimited 
was re-established 
this year after 
being inactive for a number of 
years. This group sponsored 
short seminars on repelling 
and hiking, as well as. back- 
packing, canoeing, and rock 
climbing trips. OUE is a good 
example of the diversity of 
clubs at Oglethorpe. 

ECOS is in its second year 
of existence and its influence 
can be seen all over campus. 
Recycling has been made easy 
in an effort to preserve our 
environment. ECOS also spon- 
sors campus cleanup days and 
this year has begun cleaning 
along the outside perimeter of 

the campus. As well as cleanup 
and recycling ECOS tries to 
encourage students to be en\'1- 
ronmentally aware of what is 
happening in the world. 

The cycling club may be 
small in numbers but they are 
making themselves well known 
in the nation by representing 
Oglethorpe at cycling races in 
the southeast. In addition to 
racing, they are encouraging 
students to ride bicycles, and 
are sponsoring an indoor 
cycling class in the spring. 

Chiaroscuro is a club that 
was created for any person 
who enjoyed, created, or 
appreciated art of any kind. 
This year they sponsored the 
art exhibit at the annual Night 

of the Arts, and the second 
annual Art Show that was held 
in the Great Hall in the spring. 
As well as displaying art. 
Chiaroscuro sponsors trips to 
the High Museum of Art. 

As many have discovered, a 
club is not difficult to begin at 
Oglethorpe. All an interested 
group of people must do is 
submit a written constitution 
to the OSA. If this constitution 
is accepted, an official group is 
created on campus. This is the 
way that many of Oglethorpe's 
clubs were begun. Students 
had a cause and a goal, with a 
little bit of determination a new 
club was formed. This is why 
there is something for every- 
body at OU.

Greeks seem to live 
in a different world. 

Chapter Four 

Going Greek means being part of a special bond. 

During "rush" you get to select 

which sorority or fraternity, you think is best. 

And hopefully, that special bond will connect. 
You'll learn to party and throw-up on the lawn. 

If you want a fraternity as part of your weekend scene, 

first, check out their supply of beer. 

But can each have a different atmosphere? 

"Oh yes!" you'll say, but which one is not clear 
Chi Phi, KA, DSP, SAE, which one? Go ask the QUEEN. 

The sororities also have their own events 

They get together to talk about life and school. 
The Tri Sigs and the Chi O's are really cool. 
Even though, they can't shoot good pool. 

Sisters are ladies & fraternity brothers are gents. 

The highlight of Greek life is known as "Greek Week" 

They get together to battle it out Olympic style. 

Sporting events kept them running for miles. 

Then at night, they sing & entertain us for a while. 
End of the week brings victory for the mighty but loss 

for the meek. 

-Busv Shires 


The KA Skit was enlertainin 
tliough it focused on Ihe serious topic 

of greek unity. Pictured performing are i \ 
Rob Hutchinson and Tom McGuigan. 


Greek unity — that was the 
underlying theme of Oglethor- 
pe's Greek Week 1992. 
Through speeches, songs, 
skits, and field events, the seri- 
ous concerns of Greek life 
found positive outlets. 

The speech competition, in 
which one brother from each 
fraternity orated on the topic 
"What My Fraternity Means to 
Me." reflected the personal 
conviction to one's own group 
of brothers. Themes such as 
the vital loyalty to a group and 
the fraternity as a family domi- 
nated the content of every 

The songs added comic relief 
to the week and characterized 
each fraternity accurately. 
Delta Sigma Phi sang two 
songs by Jimmy Buffet; Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon sang "I Use to 
Love Her" by Guns and Roses;" 
Kappa Alpha performed their 
versions of "One;" and Chi Phi 
harmonized to "Goodnight 

The skit competition com- 
bined some serious topics with 
hilarious entertainment. It was 

perhaps the most positive way 
in which the different Greek 
organizations have expressed 
their opinions on such issues 
as Greek housing and the pos- 
sibility of allowing a new Greek 
organization join the Inter-Fra- 
ternity Council. Not only did 
Delta Sigma and Kappa Alpha 
entertain the audience, but 
these two fraternities, in par- 
ticular, also gave everyone con- 
cerned with the Greek system 
as a whole some "food for 
thought." Nevertheless, the 
skit competition also provided 
the chance to show creativity. 
Sigma Alpha Epsilon's skit was 
a spoof on the Andy Griffin 
Show, and the Chi Phi skit 
was a wacked out version of 
the childhood favorite Sesame 

An interesting aspect of the 
1992 Greek Week was the spe- 
cial role Kappa Alpha played. 
In order to impress upon the 
entire OU community and 
especially to Greeks them- 
selves the importance of Greek 
unity, KA refused to take its 
points in the contests. 

But I hate Jelly donuts. The Delta 
Sigma Phi teammates stuff themselves as 
fast as possible in the dine and dash 
event. After running piggy-back to the 

table, players had to consume a doa 
donuts and a carton of milk before das] 
ing piggy-back back to the finish line.

Sigma Sigma Sigma was founded in 1898 and since 
then, the sisters have upheld this moto of the sorority. 
Because of this moto the sisters were involved in several activities 
this year. 

One of the most important activities is the visit to the Robbie 
Page Memorial Hospital in North Carolina, which helps disabled 
children through the technique knowiT as play therapy. Around 
Easter, the sisters make cards and baskets to take to the chil- 
dren. When they get to the 
hospital, some ^ ^/^S> ^ one dresses

through their C^_L3^ dues. 

Throughout the year, the 

sisters held mixers with all the fraternities - (except for Chi Phi 
because schedules wouldn't work) - even the unrecognized Pi 
Kappa Phi's. In fact, they were the only greek organization, as a 
whole, to mix with them, no other organization made an effort. 

The Tri Sigs had the same number of members as Chi Omega. 
even though Chi O has been on campus longer. The sorority has 
been on campus since 1987.

1969 and is still going strong: now with forty-two 
fun-loving members. We have had a busy year with 
Rush, Mixers, philanthropic projects, Mexican food outings. 
Braves games, ice skating and of course the highlight of the 
year the — White Carnation Ball. 

Despite a jam-packed calender, you could still find Chi

Delta Sigma Phi had an interesting year in 1991. First 
of all. they moved into a new house, which is three 
times the size of the prevaous house. It is able to house 
six brothers and has a volleyball court and space for a 
new pool table. 

During the fall rush, the chapter received eleven new pledges, 
the highest number of pledges for any fraternity on campus. 
Because of this. Delta Sigma Phi is the largest fraternity of the 
four on campus. 

During the fall intramural season. Delta Sig won the

Fralernities are a peculiar American insUlulicjii. While 
eomparable student orf>anizations exist abroad, the col- 
lege fraternity in the U,S, has grown up as a response 
to real needs among students in college across the 
country. Students created them, and they will survive so long as 
they serve the needs of undergraduates. 

Sigma Alpha Epsilon encourages its members to make a com- 
mitment to something outside themselves, to something larger 

than themselves, 
mitment is direct

College life is one of friendship and learning. 
Freshmen learn what studying is really like. 
Sophomores & juniors decide on a major that's right, 
& seniors come out the dark & into "workday" light. 

Decisions to study instead of party left some yearning. 

Whether faculty and staff are smart and courageous. 

No one word can characterize these folk.

allows me "the freedom to be some-

many characters while in the Play-

and Songs of the Chatta- 

Just as his roles have been many 
so have his instruments. The key- 

board, trumpet, guitar, and recorder 
are all on his list. He has also tried 
to resurecl the OU Stage Band. He 
has had relative success though he 
fears for its survival. Kevin also is 
the lead Bass in the OU Singers. 

In addition. Kevin played soccer 
and is a member of ODK and APO. 
As an Int'l Studies major, he hopes

an unmistakable smile: "I 
came to Oglethorpe and sat in on 
some classes ... I fell in love with the 
school immediately." As a Political 
Studies major, she plans to attend 
law school after graduation. 

Her career at school has been a 
mixture of Greek life and student 
leadership. As 199 1's Panhellenic 

President and sister of Tri Sigma, 
she had the task of coordinating 
rush events with Chi Omega. She 
was also a senator of OSA and Sec- 
retary during her junior year. Along 
with being on the Campus Life Com- 
mittee, she was a Resident Assis- 
tant. The demands on Debbie's 
schedule called for much time man- 
agement and long hours with her 
"family away from home."

hard lime finding a 
Job that incorporates 
all their interests. 
Barbie Stanton does not 
have that problem. Her Inter- 
ests are in education and home 
economics, and she sees her 
role as the president's spouse 
almost like a vocation. 

One of her many projects 
includes the Beautification 
Committee. Mrs. Stanton stat- 
ed that one of the goals for the 
committee is to "make 
Oglethorpe a part of a happy 
exciting environment which 
will hopefully enhance the 
whole learning process." 

A big part of her "Job" 
includes entertainment. She 
organizes receptions for stu- 
dents, their parents, faculty 
and staff. Some of the biggest 
functions are the Welcome 
Party for new students and 

Ihcir parents and the Christ 
mas Party. A tree is decorated 
with ornaments that guests 
can lake home with them. She 
also organizes several dinners. 
In October, there Is an Okto- 
berfscst dinner with lots of 
German food for the faculty 
and staff. 

Mrs, Stanton Is involved 
with the two "sister" schools — 
Seigakuln in Tokyo and Bel- 
grano in Argentina. She trav- 
eled with the president to visit 
the schools and has given 
speeches to elementary stu- 

What Mrs. Stanton enjoys 
most is "bridging the gap with 
various groups and helping to 
facilitate networking. That is so 
Important." She added "It's 
exciting because we have rela- 
tionships with so many groups 
from trustees to students."

Wow. it's snowing! 
One could hear 
this exclamation 
all over campus 
the Saturday night of January 
18. The silence that typically 
dominated the campus was 
torn with the yells of snowball 
fights in the quad and Traer 
and sledding on the white hills 

Who could study with all the 
excitement? One would think 
that these people had never 
seen snow before. Well, in fact, 
many students had not. Chris- 
tine Hathaway, ironically a 
native of Winter Park. Florida, 
had only witnessed one other 
snowfall in her life. However, 
this snow was exceptionally 
special for her. That night was 
also her birthday. She beamed 
with delight as she exclaimed. 
"I can't believe it. It's snowing 
on my birthday! What a great

Although the weather out- 
side was frightful, students 
played in the snow well into 
the night. Some students 
found cardboard boxes out of 
which to make sleds. The hills 
between Goodman and Traer 
were chosen as the best spots 
to speed over the snow — and 
each other. Snowball fights 
were also fun. In Traer. snow- 
balls were flying from every 
direction as students would 
make ammunition and carry it 
to the upper levels of the dorm 
to attack the unprepared. 

Despite all the chaos, some 
students simply walked around 
campus in awe of the beauty 
only nature could produce. 
Unfortunately, the blanket of 
snow quickly faded, and class- 
es resumed on schedule Mon- 
day morning.

At Oglethorpe, students work hard to ensure the future. 
In a world where direction is Imperative, OU students 
are up for the challenf^e. Students here are determined, 
proud, and disciplined. Furthermore, their interests are varied, 
ensuring all aspects of the community will get a taste of Oglethor- 
pe. Here's a preview to what the world can expect. As a biology 
major with a 3.888 GPA, Margie Plagwlt2 looks forward to gradu- 
ate school. She plans on working on a Phd in microbiology. She 
believes the knowledge of micro organisms applied to technology 
helps and improves society in general. Margie has found a true 
love in micro biology. She says, "It's very fascinating and although 
there's lots of interesting areas, this is the one that interests me 
most." In the 11th grade. Sherry Richardson found her direction. 
She started taking art classes to form a solid background in the 
field. Now she is learning the basics and the principles of art to 
decipher what is good and what is not. She takes great pride in 
her art desiring to do the best every time. She says. "I don't want 
my name and half-steppin' in the same sentence. "Ultimatley. 
Sherry wants to be the editor of her own magazine. Elizabeth 
Watts interned last semester at a D.C. TV news center. Now she 
is trying for an Internship this summer with the Democratic 
party. She said, "I feel I can't sit by and watch other people make 
policies; I want to be an active part.''She plans on being a politi-

Parties, alcohol, and sex 
— the typical stereo- 
type of a Friday night 
on any college cam- 
pus. Does OU fall within the 
scope of this narrow view of of 
college life? Most likely, howev- 
er, sexual awareness on our 
campus is one of the more 
important issues of concern for 
the student body. Along with 
the increased publicity on 
AIDS and other sexually trans- 
mitted diseases has arisen a 
heightened awareness for the 
need of responsible behavior 
behind closed doors. Students 
at OU appear not only to be 
well educated in the liberal arts 
but also in the area of sexual 
awareness. These students are 
level-headed individuals that 
agree on the dangers of 
promiscuous behavior and 
affirm that they practice "safe 
sex." Junior Alex Argento 

William Girton 

Lyndra Givens 

Gwendolyn Glenn 

James G rambling 

agrees stating, "I feel many 
students do make the effort to 
ensure that their actions will 
be of a responsible nature." To 
further the practices of safe 
sexual intercourse, the OU 
Bookstore sell condoms to stu- 
dents. RA's also provide stu- 
dents with free condoms upon 
request. The fact is that many 
students are unaware that 
these condoms are readily 
accessable. Junior Chris Bailer 
admitted, "I knew that they 
had them (condoms) in the 
bookstore but not in the FiA 

Students feel that the small 
size of OU reduces the oppor- 
tunity for casual sex. A majori- 
ty of students seek out rela- 
tionships with a single individ- 
ual and tend to maintain that

don't realize that contraceptives are

Ofilclhorpe takes a step 
toward helping students 
become aquainted and cope 
with contemporary campus 
issues. The project. Planet X , 
was a series of skits with sub- 
jects such as drunk driving, 
eating disorders, homophobia, 
"coming out of the closet", safe 
sex, abortion, and date rape. 
Kay Norton brought the project 
to OU and Troy Dwyer was the 
student director. Some of the 
plays were written by students 
and others were borrowed from 
a production by USC. Chris- 
tine Hathaway, a student act- 
ing in the project, said, "It 
examines various campus

end up, depending on the deci-

not a place you want to spend 
much time. Healthy lifestyle 
choices are not always easy to 
make, especially for college 
students. The Planeteers hope 
that after you catch a glimpse 
of life on Planet X, you'll think 
twice about things like exces- 
sive drinking (and driving), 
unprotected sex. racism, 
oppression and peer pressure. 
We hope to heighten your

Most American stu- 
dents would love to 
visit a distant 
country. On the 
other hand, the students who 
are from those countries would 
probably love to visit America. 
This year, there were 50 inter- 
national students who repre- 
sented 28 different countries at 

Seiku Jammeh is probably 
from one of the least recog- 
nized countries-The Gambia; 
which is on the west coast of 
Africa. Even though he adores 
his country, he left because he 
"fell in love with American ide- 
als and their education system, 
it's much broader." One of the 
things he likes best about OU 
is its "toughness" in courses 
and the people because there 
are "all sorts." 

When Tuan Nguyen was 10. 
he and his family escaped from 
Vietnam and communism. His

parents moved frequently to 
CA, FL and then finally to set- 
tle in GA. He went to his first 
school without knowing any 
English but he learned quickly. 
Tuan's major is architecture 
and one his favorite things to 
do is martial arts. 

Basil Halta is from Jordan 
and when he finished high 
school he came to visit his 
mother who lives in Jonesboro, 
which is why he's here today. 
He does wish that there were 
more students from the Middle 
East, he wants to educate peo- 
ple about his country.

Scott and Tracey Frey, Robbie 
and Tom McGuigan. Chris and 
Pat Frost, and Lisa and John 
Rock — A]] these are siblings 
that both attend Oglethorpe. 
The financial aid office encour- 
ages brothers and sisters to go 
to school together by offering a 
tuition discount for all siblings. 
In fact, that is the reason most 
siblings cite as why they decid- 
ed to both get their education 
at the same place. Besides the 
discount, siblings count the 
mutual encouragement in 
studying as the next big advan- 

Although most siblings listed 
those two as the advantages, 
each pair differed in what they 
saw as the disadvantages to 
going to school together. 

For example. Laurabeth Bol- 
ster, the older sister, expressed 

her < onrerii ihal i ' ll' . ' 
way to break awa\ iiMn. lunn, 
ties and establish one's own 
identity. She said that this pro- 
cess was made more complicat- 
ed by going to the same school 
with her sister. 

Robbie McGuigan. however, 
felt differently. He observed 
that because he came to 
Oglethorpe after his younger 
brother people were more Inter- 
ested in getting to know him. 
Nevertheless, he did admit that 
one problem he has is people 
confusing him ulth his brother 
and calling him Tom. 

The McGuigan brothers, in 
particular, have two other 
interesting aspects about 
attending Oglethorpe together. 
Their sister Marsha graduated 
from Oglethorpe. Also, both are 
brothers of the same fratemit\- 
— Kappa Alpha Order.

Tis year enrollment 
growth, curriculum 
development and dis- 
cussion of important 
human rights issues combined 
with a successful fund raising 
campaign to enhance the 
already lively intellectual envi- 
ronment on campus. The Uni- 
versity opened in the fall with 
1,147 students, a fifth consec- 
utive year of more people and 
more viewpoints. The issue of 
curricular reform brought 
intelligent action and interac- 
tion among many faculty, stu- 
dents and staff. Some mem- 
bers of our community came to 
know each other better and 
appreciate each other more by 
exploring human rights and 
responsibilities through dis- 
cussions of the discriminatory 
harassment policy. 

As the 1991-92 academic 
year closes, OU is building the 
level of financial strength 
required of an educational 

institution with outstanding 
students, faculty and pro- 
grams. With a goal of $18 mil- 
lion. The Campaign for 
Oglethorpe had attracted broad 
support. A total of $14. 5 mil- 
lion had been received by early 
spring. This amount included a 
well-publicized gift of $3 mil- 
lion from the Robert W. 
Woodruff Foundation toward 
the construction of the Philip 
Weltner Library, which is 
scheduled to open in the fall. 
Less known but important gifts 
have come from FL, MI, IL, 
OK, GA and NY as well as 
individuals across the country. 
The strongest themes of this 
year atre the efforts toward per- 
sonal growth and institutional 
progress. For Barbie and me, 
our greatest pleasure is shar- 
ing in the development of OU 
and its students, faculty, and

This wIiuIl- process 
has been harder than 
having a baby, worse 
than having a football 
team," says Dr. Victoria Wiess. 
You may think she is talking 
about reaching lethargic com- 
position students on the 
importance of a detailed argu- 
ment in an essay. She is not. 
She is talking about the new 
core curriculm that has been 
developing slowly over the past 
year. The whole process of get- 
ting Oglethorpe's faculty to 
agree on the philosophies and 
courses present in the pro- 
posed core has been difficult. 

On September 17. there was 
a CoreConvocation where stu- 
dents were able for the first 
time, to see the new core and 
comment on it. Then, a date of 
November 12 was set for the 
approval of the core by the fac- 
ulty. This comes as a surprise 
to most students who have not 
heard about these changes. 
Many were concerned with 
what they would find. "For 
most students, it has been like 
somebody was in the basement 
of Lupton making some 
Frankenstein monster come to 
life," said Matthew Thompson, 
a junior on the Core Convoca- 
tion Committee. 

The philosophy behind the 
new core is based on five ques- 
tions that each discipline 
should address. These ques- 
tions are: 

What are our present ways 
of understanding ourselves and 
the universe? 

How do these ways of 
understanding evolve? 

How do we deal with con- 
flicts in our ways of under- 

How do we decide what is of 


How do we decide how to 
live our lives? 

These questions are broad, 
but mean to introduce more 
than a rote of facts. Most fac- 
ulty hope that this different 
philosophy will bring depart- 
ments closer together and lorm 
stronger lines of comniunica 

Some of the concerns of the 
faculty might echo concerns of 
the students. Several members 
have expressed their desire to 
see the core use minority voic- 
es and perspectives in answer- 
ing these questions. "Decisions 
will have to be made about the 
representation of non-tradi- 
tional voices." says Dr. Laura 
Calkins. "Those decisions will 
probably be up to Individual 
instructors working within a 
frame work that the whole fac- 
ulty has accepted as being 
legitimate for being In the 
core." It seems that the core 
ahs the flexibility and space for 
a more world-wide perspective. 
"I hope that as faculty choose 
texts for the new core courses, 
they'll find opportunities to 
introduce pre\aously marginal- 
ized voices," says Dr. 
Madeleine Picclotto. 

"A key concept." says Dr. 
Victoria Weiss, "is courses 
talking to one another." Stu- 
dents can hope that this will 
also mean that through the 
coherency of the core, more 
talking among students and 
professors will occur as well. 
Even though few will admit 
that the new core Is perfect, 
"there Is no question," says Dr. 
Picclotto, "it Is much more 
Interesting and challenging 
than what Is now in place."

Students may think 
that they are the only 
ones experiencing a 
great deal of stress 
and and enormous pile of 
work, but they are wrong. Four 
professors have been given 
their homework assignment for 
the year, and the subject is 

Doctors Jay Lutz, Joseph 
Knippenberg, Madeleine Pic- 
ciotto, and Alan Woolfolk have 
elected to present a portfolio of 
why the University should 
grant them tenure. 

"The granting of 

tenure, "says Dr. William 
Brightman, "is not automatic 
and is extended to only those 
who have demonstrated during 
a probability period, outstand- 
ing qualities of teaching, pro- 
fessional activities and ser- 
vice." In order to show this, 
professors who have completed 
SLx years of teaching and are 
up for tenure, compile a portfo- 

The Faculty Handbook 
spells out what sort of items 
that are to be included. But, 
basically, the portfolio should 
sum up what the professor has 

been doing the past six years. 
This puts a new twist on the 
old essay — "What I did on my 
summer vacation". 

After the portfolio is com- 
pleted, the next part of the pro- 
cess could be argued as more 
stressful. What happens next 
is the wait. The professor 
sends the portfolio to their 
division chairperson by Novem- 
ber 1. There is then a whole 
series of written evaluations 
that go back and forth between 
the chairperson and the pro- 
fessor. By February 20, the 
final evaluation and recom- 
mendation is given to the 
provost. On April 15, the 
Provost sends the portfolio to 
the President who then shows 
it to the board of Trustees. 

To stress the importance of 
this process, if the board does 
not grant tenure, the professor 
teaches only one more year at 
Oglethorpe. So, if your profes- 
sor comes to class ill-prepared 
and haggard looking, he might 
be going through tenure and is 
staying up late at night doing 
his homework.

As a professor of 
Chemistry. Dr Keith 
Aufderheide main- 
tains that "hard 
work is one of the key inf>redi- 
ents in a successful college 
career in chemistry and in 
other subjects." 

In order to keep his class 
from being on of those stress- 
es, he tries to keep his classes 
interested. Each year, he adds 
something new. Lately, it has 
been the use of computers. 
Speaking of his approach to 
teaching he says, "It really 
depends on the class ... Some 
of the classes need to laugh, 
and others need to be terrified 
... But I'm neither as mean as 
some people think or as easy 
as others think." 

Dr. Aufderheide feels that 
the primary reason for being 
here is to learn. When the 
work is accomplished, then the 
play may begin but "there's no 
time to screw up." 

Tapping into the energy of 
students" is one of the most 
Important factors of teaching to 

Dr. Linda Taylor. Professor of 
English, who received her AB 
from Cornell University and 
her Phd from Brown Universi- 
ty. Taylor thrives on the excite- 
ment of "things she hasn't 
thought of before." And her 
enthusiasm for teaching finds 
its source in individual student 
reactions to literature or her 
own personal writings. 

By talking to students on an 
Individual basis, Taylor hopes 
to allow students to "realize 
more than they thought they 
could." Her focus Is not on 
memorization of facts or a par- 
ticular point of view, but on 
the dynamic relationship that 
develops between a student 
and literature. 

Dr. Taylor prefers to spend 
her free time "looking out of a 
window, listening to music and 
writing." Since her appoint- 
ment in 1975. she has contin- 
ued to find something new and

ten and said by those around

Among national Liber- 
al Arts Colleges. 
Oglethorpe ranks in 
the fourth Quartile 
according to US News And 
World Report's annual survey 
of America's best colleges and 

US News And World Report 
states that 50% of Oglethorpes 
students come from the top ten 
percent of their class, that the 
average SAT score of an 
incoming student is 1120. and 
that spending per student is 
$10,950 per year. Its survey 
also shows OU retaining 74% 
of its freshmen, and graduat- 
ing only 54% of its students in 
four years. 

These last three statistics 
are considerably lower than 
other schools and result likely 
in Oglethorpe's lower ranking. 
Other schools spent consider- 
ably more per student and 
were able to retain and gradu- 
ate them at a higher rate. 
Buchnell University in PA 
spent $5,000 more per student 
and graduated 87% of their 
students within four years. 
Bucknell also held on to 93%

Oglethorpe's SAT scores 
were the third highest in the 
state, behind Emory and Geor- 
gia Tech. OU was also second 
to Georgia Tech in terms of 
percentage of students coming 
from the top 10% of their high 
school class. 

However, OU lagged behind 
other GA schools in the overall 
rankings. Agnes Scott topped 
the second quartile, while 
Emory and Georgia Tech were 
both listed among the first 
quartile of national universi-

Winn consiclcrinii 
collegiate linan 
cial aifl. one 
does iiol think of 
the admissions office's contri- 
bution to the whole process. 
The awards process can be dif- 
ferentiated into two categories: 
Academic Scholarships and 
need-based financial aid. The 
completed scholarship applica- 
tion is sent to the Admissions 
office where a ranking, based 
upon criteria determined by 
the particular scholarship's 
rules, is assigned to the appli- 
cation. In regard to Oglethorpe 
University scholarships, the 
assigned rankings are given a 
set amount of money deter- 
mined by OU's administration. 
The application is then sent to 
the Financial Aid office where 
the mechanics of writing the 
award letter and assinging the 
pre-set amount of money is 

The ranking system is based 
on a scale of one through six, 
which ranges from the highest 
scholarship amount a student 
can receive to the lowest. For 
example, the highest scholar- 

ship awarded by OU is the 
■ James Edward Oglethorpe 
s( holarship. A student being 
considered for this scholarship 
would be designated a one. The 
reason for the ranking system 
is so that the members of the 
Admissions committee do not 
have to deal with monetary 
amounts when determining ihie 
worth of a student. The criteria 
for awarding a grant can be 
either academic or need based. 
There are several types of 
grants involved in the finamclal 
aid process. One is the Georgia 
Tuition Equalization Grant. 
Another type of grant is the 
Oglethorpe Grant which is a 
need based grant. Students 
can also get aid in the form of 
a Federal Grant. 

According to the Admissions 
office, the admissions process 
at Oglethorpe University is 
needs-blind. This means that 
the admissions committee docs 
not consider the financial sta- 
tus of an applicant when deter- 
mining admission to the uni-

Did yoii ever wonder 
why, when JEO 
rolls around, they 
get china and we get 
aper plates, they get our cafe- 
[;rla and we get Conference 
loom A, they get hot food and 
■e get cold food — basically, 
ilow we get shoved aside? Also, 
onsider the issues of the 
onor code and the harass- 
lient policy, both of which 
eem to exist only to impress 
le parents of perspectives, not 
iL aid the students who 
ilready live and study here, 
ou must understand that this 
jrticle is written by students 
'ho really care about the uni- 
ersity and are appreciative of 
' tie attempts at improvement 
1 the dining service and in 
tudent relations. But it is 
jimply ridiculous that the per- 
Ipective students and outside 
iterests are given a higher pri- 
Irlty than the present student 
!ody. When one cannot take a 
est because of the noise of a 
lovle crew, one has to wonder 
] f the powers that be are more 

interested in making money 
than providing the student 
body with what is promised in 
the O' Book and the Housing 
Manual. Not that this in neces- 
sarily the case, and not that we 
dislike the movie crews and the 
notoriety that the school 
receives; they just should not 
be catered to in lieu of the aca- 

So what is the result of all 
this? Perspective students are 
given first class treatment, but 
once enrolled they realize that 
this is only a recruiting tech- 
nique, not a slice of everyday 
life at Oglethorpe. This creates 
a disillusionment with univer- 
sity life. And the administra- 
tion wonders why the retention 
rate is so low. This university 
does not exist to provide jobs 
for philosophers, higher math- 
ematicians, presidents and 
deans. The university, as a tool 
of the highest learning, exists 
so that we can receive a quality 
education. Unfortunately, the 
false pretext given to perspec- 
tives and others about life at 

Oglethorpe dislrai:t.s Ihcin hoiu 
their academic persults and 
magnifies the problems that 
naturally exist between stu- 
dents and the administration. 

In summation, one can 
receive a quality education at 
Oglethorpe, but in doing so.

The Petrels spirit and determination filled 
the gym with lots of encouragement. 
Athletic victory is a great achievement 
because of the new conference tournament. 

All through the year, fans were thrilled. 

The athletic department gained two new sports 
They added basketball to women in the fall 
and in the spring, after 13 years, came baseball. 
Both were new teams, so they started out small. 

But they will be strong, Jack Berkshire reports. 

Team support from students was outstanding 
Thus the volleyball team was on a roll 
and the soccer team had foot control. 
While the tennis players were great on the whole. 

Participating in sports can be quite demanding. 

Through our spirited virtues we have spoken, 

that our teams are made of steel

With all the energy of an electric eel. 
Time has shown, our Petrel spirit cannot be broken.

were "a great group of guys to play with." Jerry's most valu- 
able characteristic as a player is that he understands what 
he cannot do. In other words, he leaves the dribbling to the 
quick litUe guys and contributes in the other areas. Jerry's 
leadership and strength will be missed next year, but he is 
confident that the Petrels will have winning seasons from 
now on. 

Defense. John Nunes defends the 
goal during a home Millsaps game as 

an attacking player tries to score on 
the Petrels. 

Tactics. Orlando Orsino and Will 
Aikow ran in circles around their oppo- 

nents all year. Here they team up to 
outtnaneuver a balTled Scwanee player. 

Anticipation. Brandon Airey looks

Petrels had to gel a new field this year 

because of baseball, but none of the 
players really minded.

"The freshmen did a fabu- 
lous job stepping; into the roles 
and playing like Juniors and 
Seniors," senior Jerry Jerome 
said of the nine freshmen who 
joined the 1991 OU soeecr 

This season was Brett 
Teach's second year coaching 
men's soccer at Oglethorpe. He 
has made a big impact on the 
program. This year, for the 
first time, the men were able to 
be competitive with the likes of 
Emory and Berry and to beat 
Millsaps for the first time in a 

One of the most exciting 
games was at Emory Universi- 
ty where the guys were tied 2 

all with 20 minutes left and 
had a chance of winning. The 
Petrels put forth a valiant efrort 
and despite a few key injuries, 
finished second in the match. 

Because the team was so 
young, their success next year 
depends on — if they work 
hard and work together — and 
if they pass on their bonding 
experience to the incoming 
freshmen — then they should 
continue to improve and 
remain competitive. The final 
standing of the team was eight 
wins and ten losses.

Defense! Midfielder Amy Baker rushes to defend against a Millsaps opponent. 

With six freshman, six 
returning players, and only 
three upperclassmen, this 
year's Women's Soccer Team 
was a very young squad. All of 
the members of the original 
club team have graduated, 
thus the team was a combina- 
tion of just two recruiting 
classes and a few walk-ons. 
Because of this, working 
together as a team was very 
important for the Lady Petrels 
this season. 

Between long practices, road 
trips, and six am runs on the 
baseball field, the individual 
players slowly began to come 
together as a team. They knew 
it would be a lot of work, so 
the members put their best 
into almost every practice. But 
members of any team sport 
at OU are considered 

student/athletes. This means 
that school work had first pri- 
ority and would account for the 
missed practices. 

One game that really helped 
pull the team closer, was 
against Centre College. The 
Petrels needed a win to get a 
place in the conference tourna- 
ment, and the score was tied at 
zero after regulation and over- 
time. Michelle Ponte, Amy 
Baker, and Shelley Robinson 
scored on penalty kicks to lead 
the team to a victory. 

Coach Brett Teach said, "I 
really don't think the final 
record reflects the improve- 
ment of the team." By the end 
of the season, the Lady Petrels 
were starting to turn some 
heads in the conference, and 
they should be a team to rekon 
with ne.xt season."

with Kate Baker, freshman

head of the pack consistently.

their first place finish at the

also earned a strong second

was in Newport News, Virginia

twenty four hard teams. At this

was a 

"fresh" year for the men 

When 0{<k-lh()r[K- 
men's coach 
Jack Berkshire 
assembled his 
basketball team in November, 
he had plenty of reason to 
worry. The men only had two 
returning starters. But regard- 
less of youth and inexperience, 
the squad did win games and 
established respect in its first 
year in the Southern Collegiate 
Athletic Conference. The men 
finished the season at 16-9 and 
at one time, Berkshire's bunch 
was leading the nation, in all 
three divisions, in 3-point shoot- 
ing and was among the top in 
field goal percentage. 

Berkshire was blessed with 
sharp shooting guards, as 
senior Tom Brambley and 

■soplKjiiiorc liriau KiHj>iiis Ijtjth 
hit over 40 percent from the 3- 
point range. Four players aver- 
aged in double figures, including 
Brambley (13. 6 ppg). Riggins 
(13. 2), sophomore center Brian 
Davis (10. 8) and senior David 
Fischer (11. 1). Fischer and 
Brambley were the two return- 
ers with experience and both 
effectively played their roles in 
performance and leadership. 
Besides scoring, Brambley led 
the team in steals and free 
throw percentage. Fischer was 
the team's leading rebounder 
with 8. 9 per game, shot 46 per- 
cent from the field and over 80 
percent from the foul line. Fis- 
cher also was named to the GTE 
All-South Academic Team, (con-

(continued from page 164) 

Besides these four, Berk- 
shire had several players step 
in and make and impact, 
including freshmen Greg Bar- 
ber, Cornell Longino and Andy 
Schutt. Barber led the team in 
assists and played the point 
guard slot. Longino was an 
excellent offensive player with 
exceptional quickness and 
Schutt led the team in field 
goal percentage (61.2 percent) 
and came off the bench to spell 
Fischer and Davis inside. 

Berkshire developed his 
other young players quickly, 
using freshmen Shane Strick- 
land and Matt Schlabs in the 
back court and Kevin Carlisle 
at forward. 

A big highlight for the 

Petrels this season was captur- 
ing their second consecutive 
Stormy Petrel Classic Tourna- 
ment. Riggins earned tourney 
MVP honors, while Fischer and 
Brambley were named to the 
All-Toumament Team. 

Overtime losses at home to 
conference champion Centre 
and runner-up Rhodes kept 
the Petrels out of the race for 
the championship, but it was 
evident that they were competi- 
tive in their new conference; 
they tied for fourth place. "I 
have never played this many 
freshmen and sophomores," 
stated Berkshire. 'To continue 
our winning tradition while 
doing so is a positive sign and 
an indication of exciting sea- 
sons ahead!" -D. Neugebauer

MESH and the Bad 
Boys were de- 
clared co-champi- 
ons in the Divi- 
sion II Intramural Basketball 
Championship, after the score- 
keeper made a game-altering 
mistake. With just over fifty 
seconds to go in the game. 
MESH sunk two free-throws, 
but the score keeper notched 
one point for each team. The 
mistake went unnoticed and 
the Bad Boys brought the ball 
down the court. "1 got the ball 
with 46 seconds and the score- 
board said we were down by 
one," said Bad Boy leading 
scorer Kevin Henderson. He 
went on to explain that the 
Bad Boys wasted over thirty 
seconds before sinking a bas- 

ket to put them "in the lead." 
MESH raced down the court 
and Mike Chambers got fouled 
with eight seconds to go. He 
missed both his free throws 
and the Bad Boys killed the 
remaining time. "It wouldn't be 
fair to give them the champi- 
onship after we killed the 
clock." said Henderson, "but it 
wouldn't be fair to give it to us 
either. They did score more 
points than us." The Bad Boys 
knocked out UGPB in the first 
round and edged PSD in the 
second, before facing MESH

comeback is strong. 

A a wc begin a new era 
of baseball at 
Ofilelhorpe. we must 
understand that a 
new program means a very 
young and inexperienced team 
competing against the best 
teams that tJie NCAA Division 
III has to offer. Under the 
direction of Pete Meyer, the 
Stormy Petrels faced stiff com- 
petition from many outstand- 
ing programs Including the 
1989 National Champions. 
North Carolina, Wesleyan, and 
Methodist. It should be noted 
that of the 36 games, 32 were 
played on Anderson Field. 

The Petrels ended their his- 
toric season with a 23-14 
record. They also finished third 
in the conference East Division 

with a 9-0 record, which gave 
the the best overall record In 
the Southern Collegiate Athlet- 
ic Conference. 

One of the season's high- 
lights was a conference sweep 
of a three game series with 
Centre College. In the first 
game the Petrels came back 
from a shakey start to win. 
With the help of Tommy Gam- 
bino who drove in the winning 
run in the bottom of the sev- 
enth inning to win 3-2. In the 
second game, Jimmy Moccio 
drove in the winning runs in 
the bottom of the sixth to win 
8-6. And in the third . Matt 
Weiner hit a two run homer in 
the bottom of the sixth to win 
3-2. The pitching staff was the

young program. The candi- 
dates for the starting rotation 
included freshmen RHP's John 
Lenz. Chip Evans and Gary 
Cantrell along with junior 
Jason Sheats. Others who 
played key roles were senior 
Jeff Whitney, freshmen Neal 
Bryant and LHP Mike Thomas. 

In the catcher's position, 
freshmen Ward Jones was the 
leading candidate with Jason 
Gray and Randy Hawks vying 
for time. Lenz was also an out- 
standing catcher. 

Tlie infield seemed to be the 
Petrels strong suit. Sophomore 
Tony Cooper saw action at 
both 3B and shortstop while 
freshmen Tommy Gambino 

saw time at short and 28 and 
Jay Folds at 2B and 3B. Mike 
Thomas held down the IB job 
when not on the mound. 

The outfield was solid with 
freshmen Jimmy Moccio in 
center. Chris Warren in right 
and Weiner in left. Junior 
Jamie Grambling and Will 
Lukow also played outfield. 

The MVP was Gary Cantrell, 
and the Offensive Player of the 
Year was Tony Cooper. Jay 
Folds earned the Defensive 
Player of the Year and Ward 
Jones received the Coaches 
Award. Players nominated for 
ALL SCAC were: Gary

Tyear cheerleader com- 
ments about the squad 
and his experience: "I 
enjoy it personally and believe 
it or not, it's a lot harder that it 
looks." he adds "My friends kid 
me about it; they think I'm 
only it it because of the girls." 
This typical stereo type of male 
cheerleaders didn't seem to 
phase the eight guys who par- 
ticipated. Some people may 
think that male cheerleaders 
are sissys, but in reality, it 
takes a lot of strength, balance 

and timing to be capable of lift- 
ing girls above your head. 
Some of the stunts they per- 
formed were the basket-toss, 
the throw chair and the torch. 

In preparation for Home- 
coming, they practiced 5 days 
a week for about 3 hours; com- 
ing up with new and original
