This marker can be found on top of 
Lupton Hall. It is one of the few 
places in Atlanta where a person can 
stand and have a clear view of both 
Stone Mountain and Kennesaw 
Mountain. 




The Guiness Book of World Records identifies the Ciypt of Civilization as "the first successful 
attempt of bury a record of this culture for any future inhabitants or visitors to the planet earth" 
(1990). The Crypt was first proposed by Oglethorpe's president, Thomwell Jacobs, the "father 
of the modem time capsule." It was sealed on May 28, 1940, and it is not to be opened until May 
28. 8113 A.D.The chamber is the size of a swimming pool and contains over 640.000 pages of 
micro-filmed material, a set of Lincoln logs, a Donald Duck doll, and thousands of other item from 
dally life. There also is a device designed to teach the English language to the Crypt's finders. 
The International Time Capsule Society was established in 1990 and serves to promote the 
careful study of time capsules. The group holds its headquarters here at Oglethorpe University.

Dean Donald Moore, our 
illustrious Dean of Com- 
munity Life 




Like many other colleges and uni- 
versities Oglethorpe is plagued with 
the necessity for courses. Yet, here 
we are granted a strong liberal arts 
core program of study. Whether 
they teach fine arts, English, his- 
tory, education, philosophy, psy- 
chology, sociology, business 
courses, or science, our professors 
are the best. Each faculty member 
is well versed in his or her field of 
study, and 95% hold a Ph.D. or 
terminal degree. The next few 
pages display the instructors 
you've grown to love and some 
interesting facts you may not have 
known about them.

Professor James Bohart: 
Associate Professor of Music 

Here at Oglethorpe we are 
graced with the presence of 
professors who help to 
break the monotony of 
everyday life. Some do this 
by introducing music, art, 
and drama into our classes 
and on the stage. 





Dr. W. Irwin Ray: Director 
of Musical Activities 




Professor Lee fCnippenbcrg 
Director of the Drama Program

The write stuff 



"I have a paper due 
next week." Does this 
phrase sound famil- 
iar? Well it should, 
since one of the larg- 
est emphasis in 
Oglethorpe education 
is the ability to write a 
good paper. And to 
help you with this 
task, we have a supe- 
rior English staff that 
is more than willing to 
tell you what you're 
doing wrong. 




Dr. William Brightman: Professor of 
English 



Dr. Douglas McFarland: Assis- 
tant Professor of English 

Did you ever wonder how you could embarrass your professors? Well, a 
few of them have shared some of their most embarrassing experiences with 
us. Have you ever wandered into a class on the first day and later realized 
you were in the wrong room? Imagine that happening to the professor, a 
few of our own professors have had this happen to them. In addition. Dr. 
Ray once conducted an orchestra performance with his tie caught in his 
zipper. 




Dr. Michael McClure: Assis- 
tant Professor of English 



Dr. Victoria Weiss: Professor 
of English 



16 



What exactly do these 
people do when they 
aren't devising ways to 
put more stress in our 
lives? Believe it or not, 
some of them use their 
free time to pursue a 
hobby, some stranger 
than others. Professor 
Jim Bohart plays with 
model railroads, while 
Dr. Dan Schadler grows 
ciysanthemums. Dr. 
Michael McClure 
spends his time feeding 
a spider named Gloria, 
and Dr. Dean Tucker 
does everything from 
practicing magic to 
building doll house fur- 
niture. (And you 
thought your professors 
weren't interesting!)

How smart are these people anyway? 

The I.Q.s of our staff go to various 
extremes. 

Dr. Hetherington and Dr. Carlisle 
share a similar l.Q, of 9.5 which also 
happens to be their shoe sizes. While 
Dr. Clark gives herself a little more 
credit with a response of at least 40. 
Then again we have our super extreme 
genius Lee Knippenberg who tips the 
scales at 2,479.6. (1 think she put the 
decimal in the wrong place.) Others 
didn't share their I.Q.s with us- -what 
are they trying to hide?

Dr. Bruce Hetherington: Profes-

Oh! College, what an experience- - one that some are doomed to repeat. 
Our professors are some of these people. Let's see where some of them 
got started. Dr. Ray: Samford, originally a chemistry major. Professor 
Bohart: Northern Illinois University. Professor Nick: Yale. Dr. Schadler: 
Thomas More College. Dr. Cramer: Wheaton College. Dr. Clark: Georgia 
State. Dr. McClure dropped out of U. Virginia. Dr. Tucker: Ohio State. 
Dr. Carlisle: Emory University. Dr. Hetherington: Madison College. 
Professor Lee Knippenberg: Young Harris College. Dr. Martin: Cornell 
University.

Dr. Keith Aufderheide: Professor

Dr. Martha Rosenthal: Professor of 
Biology 





Dr. Daniel L. Schadler: Professor of 



We asked the teaching staff what they 
would call a movie about their life stories 
and who would play them. Did you know 
that Dr. Schadler could see himself por- 
trayed in a movie by Tom Cruise? As you 
can see, we recieved some interesting re- 
sponses. Lee Knippenberg sees herself in 
"Beyond the Proscenium" with Sandy 
Duncan. Dr. Carlisle would be played by 
Marty Feldman, while Dr. Clark would be 
portrayed by Shirley Temple. So what do 
you think of these choices? Who do you 
think should portray our fine faculty? 




Dr. G. Malcolm Amerson: James Ed- 
ward Oglethorpe Professor of Biology 



Dr. Monte W. Wolf: Professor of Chemistry 



22 



It's In The Numbers 




Dr. Michael K. Rulison: Professor of Physics 




Dr. John A. Cramer: Professor 
Physics 




Dr. Robert A. Blumenthal: Professor of 
Mathematics 




Dr. Raymond J. Kaiser: Assistant 
Professor of Mathematics 




So far we have shared with you some little 
known facts we gathered about the faculty. 
Some may have been amusing, some you 
could have lived without, like Dr. Ray's 
partiality towards "Star Trek: the Next 
Generation" as opposed to Dr. martin's 
preference of the original Star Trek. We 
spared you political divisions and other 
boring facts. All in all we hope you learned 
a little more about your professors, maybe 
enough to taunt them.

RHA FALL CARNIVAL 




The Fall Carnival, spon- 
sored by RHA. brought 
sideshow fun to the 
Oglethorpe campus. It 
featured many games and 
prizes as well as a 
Starwalk and free cotton 
candy. It also provided 
the long awaited "Hit 
Randy Tidwell With A 
Cream Pie" event. DAKA 
provided a cookout and

Parent's Weekend 



Parent's weekend is a time 
when families come to 
Oglethorpe and visit their 
college kids. (They also 
come to spy and confiscate 
illegal contraband.) But, 
really, it is a time of great 
fun to see how the students 
live and meet their friends 
and professors. During this 
year's Parent's Weekend, 
parents were invited to 
attend lectures given by the 
faculty and staff. Other 
events that occurred this 
weekend were a Petrel soc- 
cer game, the RHA Fall 
Carnival, a reception at the 
president's house, a perfor- 
mance by the University 
Singers, and a magic show 

by Dr. Dean Tucker. , „

Ccin you do this, 
on stage? 




Cathryne Callaway, Lucy MacGregor, 
and Scott Stagg give us their rendition 
of "Closer to Fine." 






^oiu'd He do that? 



Do you have what it takes to get 
up on stage in front of an open 
audience of Ogelthorpe stu- 
dents? Well some of your peers 
did earlier this year in the 
Bomb Shelter's "Open Mike 
Night." Students both new and 
old displayed their talents with 
music, poetry readings, origi- 
nal stories, and even juggling. 
Do you think you'll be able to 
participate next year? Who 
knows, maybe you'll be a hit. 



Anyone who has doubts about 
the powers of ESP was made a be- 
liever after seeing Craig Karges in 
action. "Entertainer of the Year" 
Craig Karges brought his "Magic of 
the Mind" show to the OU campus 
in September. He fascinated the 
audience with his incredible abilities 
as an illusionist. Levitating tables, 
making predictions that came true 
during the course of the show, as 
well as other acts that seemed to- 
tally beyond reason were the com- 
mon fare. 

According the Karges, "We 
only use 0-20% of our minds. Think 
about the capabilities that must lie 
within the 80-90% of our unused 
minds." Obviously Karges has 
tapped into the 80-90% potential 
judging from his mindboggling per- 
formance

"Love's Labor's Lost" 



On October 14-17, the Playmakers sucessfully 
performed Shakespeare's comedy, "Love's 
Labor's Lost" under the direction of Lee 
Knippenberg. This story tells how King 
Ferdinand of Navarre and his three friends 
decide to retire to the woods and spend three 
years of studjang, fasting, and speaking to no 
women. However, their plan is destroyed 
when the Princess of France and her three 
ladies come to Navarre on a diplomatic mis- 
sion. The four men of Navarre become in- 
trigued by the French women and write son- 
nets to them. The women, after discovering 
that the king and his courtiers are coming 
with masks to woo them, mask themselves 
and see to it that each man gets the wrong girl. 
After this is cleared up, word comes that the 
King of France is dead and the princess must 
return. King Ferdinand asks the princess to 
many him, and his lords propose to her 
ladies, who join the princess in postponing 
their answer for a year and a day. This 
delightful play was typically Shakespearean, 
filled with word play and consistently holding 
the audience's attention. 

Submitted by Yoli Hernandez 




The princess and three other ladies (Helen 
Holifield. Kimberly Worley, Jennifer Wyatt, 
and Stacey Geagan) successfully confuse 
the king and friends.

INTERNATIONAL NIGHT 




The belly dancer made sure that Dr. Stanton enjoyed 
International Night. But what about Mrs. Stanton? 




On November 6th the annual Inter- 
national Night, organized by the 
members of the International Club, 
occurred. This year the club decided 
on a theme of "Peace and Festivities" 
because the members thought 
people needed to think of peace in 
the war-torn world of today. There 
were special displays of the Euro- 
pean Economic Community flag and 
the flag of the Philippines, which 
tells the story of war and peace. A 
May- Pole from Great Britain, the 
story of Halloween from Ireland, a 
"Vesak Lantern" from Sri Lanka 
were just some of the objects on 
display. Special contributions from 
the French Club and the Black 
Student Caucus were also included. 
The entertainment for the night 
began with a message of peace deliv- 
ered by Dr. Smith. A belly dancer, 
Greek, Latin American, and Japa- 
nese dancers combined with Rus- 
sian. French, Arabic, and Georgian 
(the Republic) music to make a 
wonderfully successful night.

CROSS COUNTRY 




Top Row: Alan Tudors, Beau Lyons, Jeremy Knights, and Alex Csidei. 
Second Row: Derek Duplessis, Coach Unger, Chris McDuffie, and Doug Pack. 
Bottom Row: Greetje Alting, Katie Farrell, Stephanie Chaby, and Linda Davis. 

Final Results: Out of eight teams in Conference, the men ranked fourth and the 
women ranked fifth. Both Doug Pack and Stephanie Chaby were named All-Confer- 
ence. Out of all the schools in the South, the men ranked ninth and the women 
ranked twelfth. Over the last 40 years, both teams have been 40- 1 in dual meets. 
Doug, Derek, Stephanie, Katie, and Linda were named All-Metro during the meet that 
involved various schools from Atlanta. 





Doug Pack qualified for the National meet 
held in Iowa this year. Under the pressure 
of powerful competition and cold weather, 
he ran the five kilometer race in a time of 
27 minutes and 42 seconds. Doug placed 
162 out of 182 of the best runners in the 
nation.

GREEK HOUSING 



The majority of the new Greek houses 
for the four fraternities and two sorori- 
ties on campus were to be completed by 
middle to late August. However, several 
delays occurred. During the spring and 
early summer, heavy rain slowed the 
progress of construction. The next 
serious delay came when the Greek 
members discovered that there were 
not going to be any stoves available in 
the houses. This delay occurred be- 
cause the architect failed to design 
proper ventilation to allow for stoves in 
the basement of the houses. On Octo- 
ber 15th, the Delta Sig and KA houses 
seemed to be completed, but both 
houses failed inspection. Meanwhile, 
Chi Phi was about to be forced out of 
their house off of Wieuca with no where 
to place all of their possessions. In 
November everyone was finally settled 
in their new houses. 

-Jason Thomas, "Stormy Petrel" 





The brothers of Chi Phi were forced lo 
find a place to store their possessions 
while they waited for the completion of 
the house. 




The brothers of SAE asked for a lion 
to be placed on the front lawn. The 
lion was the subject of vandalism 
during the completion of the houses.

MEN'S SOCCER 



The men's soccer team finished this season with a 7-9-2 record, placing them 
sixth in the SCAC. The season was plagued with injuries, arguments, ejections 
from games, and ineligibility problems. Despite these problems, several players 
achieved All-Conference honors. Will Lukow was named Co-Player of the Year. 
Joe Aykempong was named to the first team. Cameron Bready, John Nunes! 
and Rob Fearon were named to the second team. Congratulations guys! Several 
players will graduate this year. They include Captain Cameron Bready, Joe 
Aykempong, and Rob Hutcheson. They will be greatly missed!

The women finished with a final record of 8-8- 1 , which placed them 
third in the SCAC. They beat their new conference rival, Hendrix. 
The ladies also had players named to the All-SCAC team. Junior 
Kirsten Hanszek made the first team, while senior Michelle Ponte 
and freshman Tinnie Waterston made the second team. Seniors 
Michelle Ponte and Andrea Beasley will graduate this year and will 
be missed by the team. Much of the team's improvement is due to 
the new coach Todd Yelton. The ladies have shown happiness with 
his style and techniques of coaching. We're proud of our Lady 
Petrels!

Black Student Caucus 
Dance Contest 





The Black Student Caucus organized 
an all-night dance contest in Novem- 
ber. Contestants started dancing at 
about 9:30 p.m. and the last dancer 
quit at 8:30 the next morning. The 
winner was a student from Agnes Scott 
who received $50 from BSC. 
Oglethorpe students with an I.D. were 
invited to the dance for free. The BSC 
members worked hard to make sure 
the dance was a blast, and they suc- 
ceeded!!

THE DATA GENERAL GAMES

A team of our students won the Data General Games, which also challenged students 
from Georgia Tech and Morehouse College to devise a solution to Atlanta's traffic prob- 
lems over the next 20 years. The Games were sponsored by the Data General Corpora- 
tion and held at the Inforum on October 26. The Oglethorpe team members received an 
all-expenses paid trip to the 1994 Uniforum conference in San Francisco, March 21-24. 
In addition. Data General donated a color laptop computer to Oglethorpe. Our winning 
proposal recommended creating an automated Nerve Center, which would be in contact 
with all elements of Atlanta's transportation system. The nerve center would both re- 
ceive and transfer information to and from vehicles, maintaining constant surveillance of 
the alternate routes available to them.

Oglethorpe students

OAK 





OAK initiates anxiously await their chance to

The Gicat Hall is a wonderful place 
for a Christmas tree or an initiation. 



Omicron Delta Kappa, the national leadership fraternity here at Oglethorpe, 
held its initiation as always during the annual Boar's Head Ceremony. This 
year OAK more than doubled the size of their active student members adding 
nine students to the ranks. OAK also was proud to initiate two members of 
our faculty. The Oglethorpe chapter of Omicron Delta Kappa now stands at 
43 strong with these people in thier ranks:

BOAR'S HEAD CEREMONY 



The Boar's Head ceremony 
officially begins the holiday season 
here at OU. The ceremony is in- 
spired by the Coat of Arms of the 
family of James Edward Oglethorpe. 
It depicts the profiles of three 
beast's heads representing the 
strength, courage and vigor of the 
Oglethorpe family. 

In keeping with tradition, the 
ceremony included the presentation 
of the new members of Omicron 
Delta Kappa, the lighting of the 
campus Christmas tree, the annual 
Christmas concert by the OU Sing- 
ers, and other holiday musical per- 
formances, including the OU Winds, 
the Recorder Ensemble, Yuko 
Nishimura singing Handel's "Rejoice 
Greatly, O Daughter of Zion", and 
OU's president Dr. Donald Stanton, 
singing "I Heard the Bells on Christ- 
mas Day". 

Following the ceremony was a 
reception, held in the Oglethorpe 
University Museum, and the new 
ODK initiates kissing of the Boar's 
Head.

We distributed questionnaires to the student body in order to capture the 
spirit of Oglethorpe students. Here are just a few of the wackiest responses 
that we received : 




Name someone on campus who resembles a famous 
person. 

* Kent McKay looks like Mr. Clean. 

* Dr. Knippenberg looks like Rick Moranis (It's gotta 
be the glasses and the hair). 

* Will Lukow looks like William Shatner. Hair, side- 
bums, attitude... it's all reminiscent of the old Star 

Trek. 

* Dr. Schadler looks like Mr. Spacely on the Jetsons. 

* Mrs. Stanton looks like Margaret Thatcher. 

* Julie Agster looks like the girl who played Wednes- 

day in the Addams Family movie. 



What is the strangest thing that you've caught 
your roommate doing? 

* Shaving certain body parts. 

* Singing loudly and dancing around the room to 
country music while half-dressed. (She was un- 
aware that the door was open and 1 had a few 
friends with me.) 

* Studjang. 

* Chasing squirrels. 

* Waking up in the middle of the night and run- 

ning outside because he thought it was raining. 




92 



What one word do you think best describes the Oglethorpe community? 




*STUDIOUS 



*GOSSIP 



*TIRED 

*COOL 
*LOONEY BIN 

*GOSSIP 

*TINY 

*CONFUSED 

♦APATHETIC 

*SLEEPY 

♦CORPSES 



♦SMALL, DAMN SMALL! 
(OOPS, THAT'S TWO 
WORDS.) 

♦FRIENDLY BUT 
INDIFFERENT 

♦LAZY 




93 




What do you typically do to avoid studying? 

* Read fantasy novels 
* Clip my toenails 

* Tutor other students in the same subject 

* Scream out the window and drink 

* Fill out questionnaires 

* Clean the bathroom 

* Kill people 

* Make colorful mosaics with belly button lint 

* Watch T. V. 

* Talk about meaningless subjects 

* SLEEP 

* Number One Answer: ANYTHING! 



94 




What happens when you try to catch a PETREL? 



* YOU GET S- -T ON. 

* IT STARTS TO GOSSIP ABOUT STUDENTS. 

* YOU IGNITE, YOU KNOW THE STORY. 

* IT KILLS YOU. 

* YOU FEEL STUPID-THERE ARE NO LONGER ANY LIVING PETRELS. 

* YOU DISCOVER THE WONDERS THAT BIRD POOP CAN DO FOR YOUR HAIR. 

* YOU GET CRAPPED ON, OR YOU BUTT YOUR HEAD AGAINST THE PADDED WALLS 
OF YOUR ISOLATED ROOM IN THE SOLITARY CONFINEMENT WARD. 



If Time magazine decided to write an article 
about Oglethorpe, what would you suggest that 
they focus on? 

* O.U. men... the three varieties: those who love themselves, 
those who love their fraternity, and those who love other 
men. 

* The lunchroom demi-goddess who wears suits to work with 
vulgar food each day. 

* Coach Unger-the man behind the mind. 

*The theory that O.U. is a psychological testing center, and 
the students are the subjects in a psychological experiment. 
(Why else would the barbed-wire face inward?) 

* The excellent faculty and high standards set for students 

compared with the volume of alcohol they consume.

An EXPERIENCE Not To 

Be Soon Forgotten! 



Imagine riding through a 
futuristic cityscape, or flying 
into canyons and caves, or 
riding on a roller coaster that's 
not quite... real. Add a whole lot 
of sound and motion and you've 
got The Alpha Experience. It is 
truly an experience! You get the 
feeling of travelling everywhere 
and yet you never leave your 
seat, you are just on the edge of 
it the whole time. Actually, seat 
belts are provided so you don't 
accidently leave your seat but 
they don't detract from the feel 
at all and kept you from getting 
injured. This virtual reality ride 
is one which would be welcomed 
again in the future.

The Red Cross Blood Drive 




Filling Out Forms 



The Blood Drive is a very impor- 
tant event. It means people's lives can 
be saved with blood transfusions when 
needed. It also means free food and 
drinks for those who participate. This 
school year OU received an award for 
the largest percent of participation for 
a school its size. It is nice to know 
there are people who care enough to 
donate blood that is desperately 
needed. 




Thank you to all the 
Oglethorpe students and 
staff that participated and 
made this project possible. 




The Blood Drive 
workers need to 
make sure every- 
thing is alright 
with your blood.

Oglethorpe Leadership Day 



This was the second Oglethorpe Lead- 
ership Day organized by the Community 
Life office and ODK for the development 
of student leadership. Bill Kelso and Joe 
Buck conducted the days activities. Stu- 
dents were asked to answer questions like 
"who am I ?", "What do I think of those 
around me?" and "How do I interact with 
them?" 

Students worked on leadership action 
plans which were to promote new ideas. 
Working in groups they had to come up 
with ideas and then develop plans to suc- 
cessfully implement them. Questions on 
ethics and prejudice were also discussed. 

It was alot of fun and a great experi- 
ence. We learned more about ourselves and 
about each other exchanging ideas and lis- 
tening to each other. Learning more effec- 
tive methods of leadership, but, most im- 
portantly we had a wonderful, enjoyable 
time with friends.

The weeks activities included some 
very interesting activities such as "Po-

ing bees and many more activities. 

The lucky winners received hand-

traditional Children's Theatre. With 
both seasoned and first-time actors 
and actresses, the Playmakers 
entered the land of fairy tales. 
Playing for both O.U. students and 
children from local elementary 
schools, "Thirteen Clocks" had 
everything: princes and princesses, 
evil villains and crazy imps. 
"Thirteen Clocks" brought out the

The actmties tair gives prospectives many 
options when they come to OU 



Springfest is an annual event at Oglethorpe that 
allows prospective students to get a glimpse of college 
life. At Springfest the prospectives get to live in a 
dormitory for a couple of days, eat the cafeteria food, go 
to some of the fraternity parties and attend a college 
class. The prospective students are also split up into 
teams to compete with each other over the weekend in 
different events. Also during Springfest were the annual 
Stomp the Lawn concert and the Pla3miaker's production 
of "Total Abandon" which allowed the prospectives to see 
some of OU's talented thespians. Overall Springfest 1994 
was a blast; bring on those prospectives next year.

INTRAMURAL SPORTS

Intramural sports 
are much awaited times of 
the year at Oglethorpe. It 
gives everyone a chance to 
run around and play some 
of their favorite sports 
with other groups here. 
Intramural sports include 
volleyball, softball, 
basketball, and flag 
football. It allows for 
some fun competition and 
allows you to strut your 
stuff if you've got it or to 
get some much needed 
practice in if you don't.

STOMP THE LAWN III 



"...down the Ho-Chi-Minh...turn right past the Hbrary ...up the hill you'l 
find a big grassy field... you'll hear it. A bunch o' college students singin', 
eatin' and screamin' and laughin' ... doin' their damndest to kill off the grass. 
- complements of the Stomp the Lawn T'Shirt 



Sure enough on Friday the 8th of April there 
were all the students of OU singing, eating, scream- 
ing and laughing doing their damndest to make full 
use of a fantastic afternoon in the sun. 

The perfect afternoon for laying out was made 
even more perfect (let us assume) by the Battle of 
the OU bands. There was great competition between 
Whore, Black Abner and Harmonal Angst. However 
it was Harmonal Angst who came out the victors. 
The OU Dancers were also out their caught up in 
the tide of spring fever. 

As the evening wore on Michelle Malone, 
Carey Long and Natalie Farr kept the students 
rocking to the beat. While the OU cafeteria not 
wanting to disrupt the wonderful setting served 
dinner out on the quad. Making a very enjoyable 
time of... killing off the grass. 



It is the perfect day to work on that tan

The OU Track Team at 
Conference. 





Michelle Ponte sprints off to help set the 
new OU record for the 4x100 relay 

Nathan winning the conference title in the 
High Jump 




Although getting off to a late start, O.U.'s track 
team charged forward with enthusiasm and determina- 
tion. This year's team, with thirteen new members, 
made some incredible achievements. Personal records 
were set weekly as athletes tested their strength and 
courage against tough competition. Michelle John 
attacked the hurdles. Kim Jackson, Melissa Drouin, 
Mark Hannah and Jeff Marmash threw the Javelin like 
Greek gods. Jayme Sellards, Tinnie Waterston, Jim 
Bowling and Lucy MacGregor jumped to further and 
further distances. Our distance men and women (Beau 
Lyons, Will Corum, Katie Farrell, Stephenie Chaby, and 
Linda Davis) circled the track endlessly. 

Besides personal records many school records 
were threatened and several were broken. Nathan 
Briesemeister led the way with an outstanding high 
jump of 6' 9" at the first meet. He went on to place first 
at Conference with an injured hamstring and a height 
of 6' 6". Alan Tudors smashed the 3000m steeplechase 
record in his first attempt and ended with second place 
at Conference. Katie Farrell led the women with three 
new records in the 800m, 1500m, and 10,000m runs 
and was named All-Conference. The women's 4x1 00m 
relay team, consisting of Tinnie Waterston, Shelly 
Robinson, Jim Jackson and Carol Chisom, also broke 
the school record with ease.

as a result of Fall Rush. Brothers 
agree the best moment was FINALLY 
moving into their new house on Greek 
row. To raise money for their many 
social events and projects, the annual 
"Rent-a-Delta Sig" was held. This 
fraternity also found time to partici- 
pate in Atlanta's Adopt- A- Highway 
program, cleaning up the highways 
twice each semester.

The Pledges of 1993 





133 




Definition of a Gentleman--- The forbearing use of power does not 
only form a touchstone but the manner in which an individual enjoys 
certain advantages over others is a test of a true gentleman. The power 
which the strong have over the weak, the employer over the employed, the 
educated over the unlettered, the experienced over the confiding, even the 
clever over the silly- 

The forbearing or inoffensive use of all this power or authority, or a total 
abstinence from it when the case admits it, will show the gentleman in 
plain light. The gentleman does not needlessly and unnecessarily remind 
an offender of a wrong he may have committed against him. He cannot 
only forgive, he can forget; and he strives for that nobleness of self and 
mildness of character which impart sufficient strength to let the past be 
but the past. A true man of honor feels humbled himself when he cannot 
help humbling others. 

—Robert E. Lee 
These are the ideals that Kappa Alpha holds themselves to and 
has existed consistently at Oglethorpe since 1972 as such. 
The Beta Nu chapter of KA is still growing and will for many 
years to come. Kappa Alpha and the other three fraternities 
are here to stay.

"To live constantly above snobbery of word or deed; to 
place scholarship before social obligations and char- 
acter before appearance; to be, in the best sense, 
democratic rather than 'exclusive,' and lovable rather 
than 'popular'; to work earnestly, to speak kindly, to 
act sincerely, to choose thoughtfidly that course which 
occasion and conscience demand; to be womanly 
always; to be discouraged never; in a word, to be loyal 
under any and all circumstances to my Fraternity and 
her highest teachings and to have her welfare ever at 
heart that she may be a symphony of high purpose and 
helpfulness in which there is no discordant note ."

Since the year 1987, Oglethorpe University has 
heard the chant "Sigma Sigma Sigma." This is 
because in its past six years ZZZ has grown in 
numbers equivalent to that of Chi Omega. And 
rest assured Tri-Sigma has made it known. This 
year Sigma Sigma Sigma has carried on with their 
annual Halloweenie Roast and Christmas parties. 
Not only does Tri-Sigma recognize the need to 
relax and enjoy themselves, but they also recog- 
nize the necesssity to help others. Through both 
time and monetary commitments, Tri-Sig tradi- 
tionally aides the Robbie Page Memorial Hospital 
in North Carolina. For these and many other 
reasons Sigma Sigma Sigma has become a voice to 
be heard on the campus of Oglethorpe University, 
whether it be during intramurals or late at night 
on Bid Day.

Oglethorpe University 
Alma Mater 

Our dear Alma Mater, 

to you we sing our praise. 

Your gray stone and mortar 

give strength for the coming days. 

Then like the Petrel, feet near the ocean, 

We'll rise through wind and rain. 

Yes, Oglethorpe, you're here to remind us: 

Nescit Cedere.

The room is dim; light gets smothered there. 
The overhead flourescent lights only come on 
when something small is lost— keys, an i.d., or 
quarters for laundry; even then, it's dark, be- 
cause the loft throws shadows everywhere. 
Next to the closet, the black bookcase stands- 
-a little crooked. The books overflow along with 
papers, pizza coupons, and plastic cups. The 
closet door has always been off its hinges, and 
is propped up waiting in the common room. A 
mountain of dirty clothes spills out from the 
closet. The floor is always covered with papers, 
tissues, and torn-covered books, with over- 
turned coffee mugs huddled around the coffee 
maker. The brown recliner with leather all torn 
up can't lean back. The red couch covers the 
back wall under the window. It's in the best 
condition of an5^hing in the room and hugs us 
as we lie together on it on cold, rainy days, when 
we leave the window open to listen to the rain 
hitting the sidewalk. 

Out past the quad of lights, where the trees 
fight in the shadows against the buildings- 
walk out by the security booth filled with a 



146 



sleepy student and the hum of the radio. To the 
right of the entrance lit up on Peachtree is a 
rumbled parting of the grass where cement 
stones cut into the ground. The stadium glows 
under the moon; the wind blows the flags above 
the stadium, and they ruffle into the traffic. 
Machinery sits in the corners of this basement, 
and I find myself back in my childhood fears. I 
find the tunnel leading to the stands and walk 
out. As I slowly walk up the incline, the blinking 
orange lights from the field house crawl up my 
face. I turn around at the end of the runway, 
face the stop of the stadium— along the rim of 
clouds and the moon. I climb up the stairs and 
listen to the night sounds out on Peachtree— 
cars flying to Olympic and Red Dot, a girl 
hanging out of the car window, screaming at 
me. On the twenty- first step upward, I stop 
climbing and sit down so the cold stone seeps 
through my jeans. The woods loom like black 
giants, hovering out behind it all. Out here, I 
know this is my home.

THE ACCOUNTING CLUB 




The Committee of the Accounting Club with their Advisor Dr Baker 



Their activities are geared toward career development with social func- 
tions intermixed. During the year, the club usually goes on field trips to two 
"Big Six" accounting firms for a tour and a chance to meet accounting profes- 
sionals. They also have fall and spring parties to meet recruiters and alumni in 
a more social setting. During the spring, speakers from the Atlanta area come 
to campus to talk with the accounting club about career plans, recruiting and 
interviewing. Another career development activity is mock interviews. These 
interviews are for rising seniors in preparing for the interview process. These 
activities are beneficial to all accounting majors as they plan for careers in the 

Dr Baker and Dr Middleton consider them- 
selves the "father" and the "mother" of accounting 
here at Oglethorpe. They take great pride in mak- 
ing sure that through the Accounting Club all 
accounting majors not only meet the academic 
requirements but also learn the social skills they 
will need upon graduation to get a job. Thus the 
Accounting Club is a great asset to all the pro- 
spective accountants here at Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity.

Alpha Phi Omega is the 
national co-ed service frater- 
nity founded on the principles 
of the Boy Scouts of America. 
They provide service to the 
campus, the community, and 
to the nation as a whole as 
well as their fellow brothers. 
Friendship, Leadership, and 
Service are their cardinal 
principles. This year they 
have had many successful 
service projects including the 
blood drive, special Olympics, 
bowl for kids' sake, recycling 
and clothes drives, and many 
walk-a-thons. The Mu Mu 
chapter of Alpha Phi Omega 
was founded on Oglethorpe's 
campus in 1958 and contin- 
ues to be a strong and active 
part of the school.

the hands of Lee Knippenberg. Not only has Alpha Psi 
begun holding a regular performance each year, but its 
members have become more involved in other activities 
around campus, such as Oglethorpe' s Service Day. 
And what about their performances? The production of 
"Laughing Wild" was astonishing in its intensity.

Black Student Caucus (the 
BSC). Infused with new life by 
an energetic group of 
Freshmen, BSC hosted the 
"Shake it 'til you Break it " 
Dance Contest in the Fall that 
was widely attended by the 
whole campus. In the Spring 
BSC held its annual bakesale 
(always looked forward to by

now open to men and women who have 
lettered in two varsity sports. 

The athletes that belong to the O 
Club actively support all athletic teams in 
the University, aid the athletic 
department in recruitment and visitation, 
and publicize events around the school. 
After getting off to a slow start, the club is

large group meeting is held with special

during the week, smaller group Bible

meetings. Several members attended a

opted to go to the University of Illinois

This year the O.U. Playmakers soared to new heights of excellence. 

Shakespeare's "Lx)ve's Labour's Lost," the children's musical "Thirteen 

Clocks," and Larry Atlas's "Total Abandon" proved that the Playmakers 

were not only versatile but dedicated actors and actresses. However, 

what the audience did not see during the rehearsals and performances 

was just as entertaining. This was the year of forgetting one's entrance 

due to diarhea. This was also the year of "Stomp the Baby," an "R" rated 

Barney, and the lovely thigh slap. Quite a few quotes have been 

immortalized as well, but no quote can compare with the proclamation: 

"Your ass is mine, and I'm a lawnmower!" 

In closing, the Playmakers would like to congratulate one of their 

own on the occasion of her engagement and upcoming wedding: 

Congrats, M.C.! We love you!

activities during this 3rd year since its 
founding. 

Ongoing chapter programs 
include the SPS Faculty Lecture 
Series, the SPS Sci -Fi movie series, 
and regular showings of science 
educational films. SPS annually 
sponsors several of the most visible 
OU "Geek Week" events, notable the 
extraordinarily successful Paper 
airplane and Popsicle-Stick Bridge 
Building Contests. Other SPS activi- 
ties included volunteer assistance to 
admissions on visitation days, informal 
chapter meetings, and assistance to 
the Science Division. SPS also in- 
ducted members into im. the national 
physics honor society operated by SPS. 
SPS played an important role in the 
university's Fall 1993 Cosmology 
Lecture Series. 

SPS was awarded the 1993-94 
OU Dean's Award in recognition of 
SPS's high level of activity as a campus 
organization. The chapter was also 
named a national "Outstanding Chap- 
ter".

1993-94 has been a year of 
changes for the staff and readers of 
the school newspaper, the Stormy Pe- 
trel. An updated format was intro- 
duced with a broader range of stories. 
The staff worked diligently to get the 
paper out on time, without sacrificing 
the quality. Included was more room 
for editorials, giving a voice for many 
opinions. Staff members also present- 
ed both on and off campus events, 
keeping everyone informed. With such 
a large staff, every person had to con- 
tribute to the finished product. Their 
hard work is evident on all the pages 
of the Stormy Petrel.

camera for distracting him as he edits the

SAA and Alumni mentors can help you find 
the right path.

Cheung, Jim Faasse, Amy Zickus 
(president). Not pictured: Eileen 
Cohen, Clay Barrineau, Susan 
Shirley, Claire Buzzard, Sarah 
Buzzard, Robbie Romeiser. 



The Student 
Alumni Association 
works closely with the 
alumni office to keep the 
alumni of OU informed 
and involved in our ac- 
tivities. They help coor- 
dinate Homecoming, 
Alumni weekend, and 
the alumni mentor pro- 
gram which tries to 
match up students with 
alumni in their areas of 
interest. SAA had a slow 
start this year as a rela- 
tively new group on cam- 
pus but watch for it 
again because things are 
sure to begin kicking up.

Some Thoughts from the 
Graduates 



"I love my ties, partly out of respect, partly out of fear." 
-Hany Anderson (Submitted by Michael Claxton) 

"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature. . . Life is either a 

daring adventure or nothing." 

-Helen Keller (Submitted by Maiy Catherine Cutcliffe) 

"Oglethorpe: the only institution with more speed bumps than course offer- 
ings." 
-Brian Davis 

"The only normal people are the ones you don't know very well." 
-Joe Ancis (Submitted by Killian Edwards) 

"Great or small, you furnish your partstoward the soul." 
-Walt Whitman (Submitted by Beth Harris) 

"Till this I learned that he who buildeth well is greater than the structure that 
he rears, and he who learns that heaven hears is wiser than wordy wisdoms 
letters tell." 
-(Submitted by Helen Holifield) 

"It's what you learn after you know it all that counts." 
-J.W. (Submitted by Angelica Klonis)

"Sweet rose, fairjlower. untimely plucked, soonfaded- 
Plucked in the bud and faded in the spring: 
Bright orient pearl alack, too timely shaded; 
Fair creature, killed too soon by death's sharp sting. 
Like a green plum that hangs upon a tree 
And falls through wind before the fall should be." 
-William Shakespeare

Originally, the stadium 
was supposed to be 
constructed in the shape 
of a circle beginning with 
"A" and ending with "Z." 





Look at the stuff hidden deep 
in the abyss of the stadium!

"Crabbed age and youth cannot live together: 
Youth is full ofpleasance, age is full of care; 
Youth like summer morn, age like winter weather; 
Youth like summer brave, age like winter bare. 
Youth is full of sport, age's breath is short.. 
Youth is nimble, age is lame. 
Youth is hot and bold, age is weak and cold. 
Youth is wild and age is time. 
Age, I do abhor thee; youth, I do adore thee. 

my love, my love is young. 
Age, I do defy thee. sweet shepherd, hie thee. 

For methinks thou stay'st too long. " 

-William Shakespeare
