Oglethorpe is intimacy. 
Oglethorpe is blurred bound- 
aries. Dunn Neugebauer is 
Oglethorpe. Dunn's closeness to 
his players and his integral role 
in campus community blur the 
boundaries between coach and 
player, teacher and student. As 
guide and friend, as boost or 
crutch, as flirt or confidant, for 
the past five years Dunn has 
brought enthusiasm and passion 
to everything he has done for 
Oglethorpe. In addition to 
coaching tennis Dunn goes the 
extra miles to help with basket- 
ball and soccer, announcing 
starters at home and traveling 
by planes, trains (MARTA). and 
minivans to keep stats on the 
road. Dunn is a columnist who 
cannot be captured in print. He 
is a disc jockey who broadcasts 
love even when the WJTL 
transmitter is down. Like the 
crosswords he is fond of, Dunn 
is a puzzle: a grown man who 
lives in a dorm and eats cafete- 
ria food with college kids vol- 
untarily. 

Dunn Neugebauer ... 
only at OU.

Left: Life. A 
long passage 
with some 
beautiful things 
to look at and 
ponder. 
However, the 
Oglethorpe 
Museum 
misleads us. 
The end of our 
means is not the 
Buddha himself, 
but the 

enlightenment 
he found and the 
release from the 
circle of life. 



An anomaly is something un- 
usual, peculiar, different. In this 
edition of iheVamac raw, the 
staff wishes to feature the 
anomalies of Oglethorpe which 
give the University its charac- 
ter. Each day in class we en- 
counter questions. Some have 
concrete answers; others only 
have theories attached to them: 
most we are left to ponder. In 
pondering the character of 
Oglethorpe, many questions 
arise: Who named the Ho Chi 
Minh Trail? Is there an elevator 
in Goslin? If Dr. Neujahr 
knows the meaning of life, why 
won't he tell us what it is? \Vh\ 
do athletes sit on the left side of 
the cafeteria? Are the academic 
quad and upper quad actually 
quadrangles? In this yearbook, 
you may fmd an answer to 
these questions: for some you 
may find only theories. Most, 
however, you will be left to 

ponder.

We may take strength from the 
gray stone, but men and women 
have invested the might in the 
mortar. Before a school was 
named Oglethoipe, a man was 
named James Edward. Before a 
building was named Hearst, a 
woman was named Phoebe. 
Before a road was named 
Lanier, a man was named 
Sidney. Like the Pattillo Oak, 
Oglethoipe's roots continue to 
grow deeper as her branches 
reach higher. Each Petrel has 
the opportunity to define what 
Oglethorpe is, and what 
Oglethoipe will be. Like 
Hermance Stadium. Oglethoipe 
is beautifully incomplete, a 
monument to ambition, impedi- 
ment, and adaptation. Class 
after class adds its own chapter 
to Oglethorpe lore and legend. 
Three hundred years have 
passed since the birth of Gen- 
eral Oglethorpe. Over a century 
and a half have passed since 
Oglethorpe University's birth in 
Midway. As Oglethoipe ap- 
proaches a new millennuim in 
Atlanta, she flies teeth to the 
winds of a volatile world with 
resolve in her breast and a 
proud past at her back.

Question: 

Why is Oglethorpe an Anomaly? 




"If a school with such a 
large number of tattooed bodies 
and pierced clitori along with 
courses like Great Ideas in 
Modern Mathematics is not an 
anomaly, I don't know what is." 



SteA^Af/vCe Qxte/i JolXi\/e\ V/iltiAa^ 



"What other school would 
pay you $5-an-hour to watch a 
gate? If I weren't here I 
wouldn't get the experience of 
being a human watch dog. It's 
a fascinating place to be." 



^^C^ t]f^-H-^^ 



"I think it's just great that 
we have so many people doing 
'their own thing' on campus. 
Thank goodness Petrels are not 
satisfied with normalcy. If 
prospective students want to do 
things by the book, they needn't 
bother coming to Oglethorpe."

Opal's wrathful winds and rain

resilient cake candles. While 
Atlanta was conquering Cleve- 
land in a savage contest, 
Oglethorpe was nobly topping 
the nation in table football. 
MARTA cartographers and 
Honduran carvers marked 
Oglethoipe's prominence with 
timeless strokes. When the 
world detrains at a stop named 
OU we will welcome it with 
open mahogany doors.

Oglethorpe University is 
a 1 00-acre farm of mental 
cultivation where well devel- 
oped people are the desired 
crop. Straight, well-organized 
rows of geeks, freaks, greeks, 
and athletes have all been sown 
with the seeds of commonality 
and friendship. These rows all 
receive the daily sunshine of 
comraderie and the periodic 
watering of academic rigor. 
Events such as Geek Week, 
Stomp the Lawn. Greek Week, 
and athletic contests act as 
fertilizer, enriching the soil 
which holds and nurtures com- 
munal roots. With this mixture 
of sunlight, water, and nutri- 
ents, the individual grows 
strong with time. Soon the 
field is teeming with vigorous 
individuals each striving to be 
his personal best. This commu- 
nity of various living creatures, 
growing and attaining their 
lives' goals while at the same 
time affecting the lives of those 
around them, is truly flourish- 
ing. We find that, upon reach- 
ing full maturation, these indi- 
vidual rows have disappeared 
and all that is left is a solid field 
of brilliant, lively green: our 
Oglethorpe University commu- 
nity.

The dorm room is a fundamen- 
tal element of the college expe- 
rience. Warmth and comfort 
play no part in the charm of 
dorm life. Power outages, 
cockroaches, cold water, flood- 
ing, cramped quarters— these 
are what we enjoy. They instill 
a sense of community among 
the residents. The suite-style 
buildings are designed to re- 
semble apartments, and they 
come dangerously close to 
removing the community ele- 
ment which defines the dormi- 
tory. Fortunateh'. we have 
paper-thin walls so that our 
conversations (particularly in 
upper-quad bathrooms), are not 
completely pri\"ate. Thanks to 
these walls, the residents are 
also able to share their musical 
preferences with their neigh- 
bors, thus enriching the connec- 
tion. And just in case the com- 
munity spirit begins to topple, 
nothing replenishes the spirit of 
dorm living like a nice fire drill 
at two in the morning. Yes. this 
is the life we have come to 
love, the land where roaches 
are not afraid to charge, show- 
ers are too small to shave your 
legs, and RAs try in \ ain to 
keep men out or Traer. In domi 
life, suffering is the one. lasting 

charm.

Most students are famil- 
iar with basic rules of etiquette 
by the time they enter college, 
but upon arriving at 
Oglethorpe, they must learn 
new rules which apply only to 
the Oglethorpe dining hall. As 
freshmen, all students automati- 
cally take trays, but after only a 
few weeks, most women forego 
the tray and make separate trips 
later for salad or dessert. This 
aids efforts to fit far too many 
people at one table, because 
trays take up so much room. 
Seating being the most impor- 
tant element of dining hall 
etiquette, one selects a table 
based on the design of the table 
itself, and on the table's loca- 
tion. Pedestal-style tables are in 
great demand owing to their 
vast seating capacity, while 
those with the troublesome 
knee-level bars underneath are 
to be avoided. As for location, 
certain social groups always sit 
in the same area of the cafeteria 
(see diagram). Most students 
are monogamous in their seat- 
ing preferences, but some stu- 
dents refuse to submit to a 
seating label, and join different 
groups at different meals. 
Oglethorpian culture, you see, 
revolves around dining hall 
etiquette.

Atlantans don't usually worry about Hurri- 
cane season, but this fall Hurricane Opal chal- 
lenged their sense of security. The storm hit in 
the middle of the night. At first the howling of 
the wind merely made it difficult to sleep, but as 
the storm worsened, the power went out. win- 
dows began to rattle, and trees started to fall. 
Security told many of the Greek residents to go 
to the upper quad because so many trees were 
falling behind the houses. Meanwhile, on the 
upper quad, students had found an opportunity to 
party. A fair number of students gathered in the 



quad in the middle of the storm. Every time a 
large gust of wind roared through the quad, they 
screamed. 

The next morning revealed many fallen 
trees and some structural damage, but the prob- 
lem was that the power was still out. Classes 
were cancelled, and the power remained out for 
four more days. Then the hot water went out. and 
life on campus became ugly. The dining hall 
served sparse meals by candlelight, so many 
students drove down to Lenox, which had elec- 
tricity and hot food. But hey, we survixed.

The Night of the Arts is an opportunity for 
students and faculty to share their gifts in the arts 
with the Oglethorpe community. Favored by 
students are Dr. Taylor's contributions of poetry 
and songs. Another faculty performance revealedl 
that Dr. Orme plays the piano quite brilliantly. 
The Night of the Arts is consistent with 
Oglethorpe's recognition of the importance of 
dance, tune, word, and song. The participation of 
the faculty demonstrates their connection to the 
students through appreciation of the arts and our 
liberal tradition.

"Oglethorpe" is a name— a word to illus- 
trate an inspiration, an aspiration. But 
Oglethorpe Day isn't just about the General, it's 
about the specific. A day meant to commemorate 
the shared experience and ideals of our commu- 
nity of learners could go by other names. 
Chapman Day, Faasse Day, Fulton Day, even 
Jedrychowski weekend— any of these could focus 
our attention on who we are and whom we strive 
to be. So we give Jamie the card, the cake and

February 26. 1996, was truly a high water 
mark on the sounding hne of the river of this 
year's events. The excitement sprung forth as 
students gathered together in pools of tailgaters. 
As current students and alumni renewed old 
friendships, homecoming excitement began to 
build. Soon to crowds flowed into the basketball 
arena, where the excitement did not ebb until the 
last second had ticked off the game clock. 

As the day passed by, people began to 
prepare for the Homecoming dance at the 
Fernbank Science Museum. Despite some initial 



problems with transportation, the dance was 
eventually under way. Almost the entire student 
body arrived in their Sunday best and read\ to 
celebrate until the early morning hours. Home- 
coming reached a fevered pitch when Cathy 
Skinner and Kevin Huitt were crowned Lord 
and Lady Oglethorpe. 

After consuming all of the fun that was to 
be had at Fernbank, the student body returned to 
campus and continued the Homecoming cel- 
ebration in the familiar environment inside the 
Oglethorpe gates.

Springfest is that three day event during 
which prospective students flock to campus to 
get a taste of what Oglethorpe is never really 
like. During Springfest we have better food in 
the dining hall, better parties, and this year, we 
had Drivin' and Cryin' play at Stomp the Lawn. 
For three days we came across looking as 
Oglethoi-pe would in a parallel yet slightly cooler 
universe. Stomp the Lawn was a chance to get a 
tan, listen to some music, and buy some t-shirts. 
Alas, the disillusioned 'festers had a wonderful

The following is an excerpt from the 1996 Commencement address given by Sir Keith Thomas PBA 
President of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, James Edward Oglethorpe's honorary alma mater. 



I suggest that what we should remember about 
General Oglethorpe on this occasion is that he was the 
product of the same sort of liberal education which you 
yourselves have enjoyed. His life is relevant to you 
because it shows the diverse uses to which a liberal 
education can be put. 

For Oglethorpe was both a scholar and a man of 
action. He had a distinguished military career, fighting 
with the Austrians against the Turks and defending Geor- 
gia against the Spaniards. He was a member of parliament 
for over thirty years and a social reformer who exposed 
the ghastly conditions in the gaols where people were 
imprisoned for debt. He envisaged Georgia as a place 
where well-to-do debtors (or rather debtors who had once 
been well-to-do) might start a new life. He planned it as a 
model society, though I am afraid that it did not entirely 
stay that way; and he lived to see the colony gain its 
independence. 

During this very active life, Oglethorpe kept up 
his scholarly interests. He read widely in the history of 
the ancient Greeks and Romans, which he had studied at 
Corpus. He spoke French and German and wrote polished 
Latin verses. He was a Fellow of the Royal Society, 
England's leading scientific academy; he helped to found 
the British Museum; and he accumulated a splendid 
personal library. When he retired from public life, he 
spent much time in the company of the most cultivated 
people of the age. like Dr Samuel Johnson and his biog- 
rapher James Boswell: the writers. Horace Walpole and 
Oliver Goldsmith; the painter Su- Joshua Reynolds; and 
the orator Edmund Burke. 

So Oglethoipe's liberal education made a great 
deal possible for him and your time at this university will 



do the same for you. You may not think that now, but 
before you decide too quickly that Oglethorpe Univer- 
sity made no difference to your lives, I urge you to 
remember what the Chinese leader, Chou-en-Lai, said 
when they asked him what he thought the effect of the 
French Revolution had been on world history. It was, hi 
said, too soon to tell. 

I am afraid that there are still some people who 
donf think much of a liberal education. They say of the 
study of history or literature that it merely teaches you i 
despise the money that it prevents you from making. In 
fact, higher education, even in a subject like history, is < 
good thing economically and helps to make us more 
prosperous. But that's not its primary purpose. If you 
chose to study here because you thought it would help 
you to earn more money later you did the right thing, 
but for the wrong reasons. You are like the man who 
won a fortune in a lottery by repeatedly backing the 
number twenty-three. When they asked him why he had 
chosen twenty-three, he explained that he had a dream. 
"I dreamed the number seven. And the second night, I 
dreamed the number seven. And the third night, I 
dreamed the number seven. So I said, this must mean 
something. Three sevens are twenty-three..." 

The real object of a liberal education is to de- 
velop skills and attitudes which will enrich your life. 
You learn to inquire, to analyze and to evaluate; to be 
aware of the past, of different societies, of how things 
could be other than they are. A liberal education is 
something which stays with us. The last portrait we have 
of Oglethorpe shows him as an old man of eighty-eight 
perusing a volume at the sale of Dr Johnson's books, 
interested in learning until the end.

At its best Oglethorpe is 
intimate and ambitious. 
Oglethorpe's dramatic perfor- 
mances reflect the best of 
Oglethorpe University. No 
member of the audience is far 
from the performers. Directors 
and performers take special 
pains to bring the Oglethorpe 
community, as well as the many 
outside advocates of the arts 
that frequent many of the per- 
formances, into the very heart 
and soul which is Oglethorpe 
drama. Only a school based 
around the dramatic ideals of a 
man like Thomwell Jacobs can 
truly embrace the art of perfor- 
mance. Oglethorpe does em- 
brace this art, and the art com- 
munity, in turn, embraces 
Oglethorpe. Senior Michael 
Billingsley puts it best when he 
says, "No school is an island, 
but with the shows that our 
drama department puts to- 
gether, if Oglethorpe were an 
island, I wouldn't mind being 
stranded there one bit."

Not pedagogues in ivory 
towers or lecturers droning before 
seas of unfamiliar faces, the 
Oglethorpe faculty are individu- 
als we know, advisors to whom 
we listen, and intellectuals from 
whom we draw inspiration. The 
third floors of Hearst and Lupton, 
and the second floor of Goslin 
contain the peculiar havens of 
these personalities— the faculty 
offices. The name plates on the 
doors read like a list of class- 
mates. Some names are only 
vaguely familiar, others conjure 
memories of core classes fresh- 
man year. Every once in a while, 
though, the name is of a good 
friend, and the doorway beckons. 
Passing through it into the office, 
you find yourself surrounded by 
countless volumes of works 
crammed onto inadequate shelv- 
ing. You may be there to discuss 
an assignment or an internship, or 
to ask for an extension, but you 
would feel just as comfortable 
dropping by to chat. 

The Oglethoipe faculty 
humanizes the college experi- 
ence. Students try not to miss 
class, not just because they need 
the notes, but because the profes- 
sors will notice they are gone. As 
mentors and friends, the faculty 
teach us to think, to write, and to 
work. Although as time passes 
our names and faces may be 
slowly forgotten, theirs surely 
will not. The influence they have 
had on us has shaped who we are.

What's anomalous about the Oglethorpe University 
English department? Hmmmm... maybe EVERY- 
THING? It's a well-known fact that our English depart- 
ment-the professors, the courses, the students-are, well, 
kind of different from the other departments here at 
Oglethorpe. So what is it that makes them so different? 
To fmd out the truth, we went to those who should know 
best-the English majors. We begged them to let every- 
one in on the secret by sharing just a drop of their ever- 
flowing creative juices. Their task: to describe the 
English Department in one word. So take a while to 
ponder these most interesting word choices and decide if 



the English majors did indeed shed any light on the 
anomalous nature of the department or decided to keep 
it enshrouded in darkness once again.

A student entering Lupton Hall lor the first time 
/ould expect to see quiet halls and classes with students 
/orking furiously at business problems. At first glance 
lat is what she would see. Then Dr. Schulz's dog would 
an by and the student would begin to notice the real 
)glethorpe Business Department. A kind of restrained 
haos reigns in Lupton with the line of students outside 
)r. Baker's office and one or more of Dr. Middleton's 
Mother Mary to Accounting majors) children running 
own the hall to get some candy from Dean Tucker. (I 
aven't seen it, but I wonder what happens when the kids 
nd the dog meet). Dr. Hetherington will have at least 



one KA in his ol'ficc, and Dr. .Straley can al\<.ays be 
counted on as a diversion whether in class or roaming 
the halls. Each of the professors in the Business and 
Economics departments has a distinct personality that 
students will either love or hate, but this personality 
makes Oglethorpe a unique place to get a business 
degree.

You've seen Dr. Wolfs pink tlamingo shining from the 
top floor of Goslin. you were never certain what Dr. 
Amerson was sipping on in Human Biology, and you've 
seen Dr. Matthews' technicolor goggles, but these are 
only a few of the things that make the science depart- 
ment at Oglethorpe unique. Here are some other facts 
you may not be aware of: 

•Goslin Hall was named for Dr. Roy N. Goslin who 
served Oglethorpe as Professor of Physics and Math- 
ematics and later as Director of Admissions. 

•Buckets of a mysterious substance known as "Goslin 
Goop" can be found in storage closets of Goslin. The 
goop is rumored to be left over from Dr. Wheeler's 
(professor 1954-1985) Principles of Science Lab and no 



one is quite sure exactly what is in it. 

•Dr. Amerson was Dean of Academics at Oglethorpe 
before he decided teaching biology was more fun. 

•Dr. Cramer once found some radioactive material 
stored in the basement of Goslin. Ask him about the 
experience sometime. 

•Dr. Schadler grows chrysanthemums as a hobby. You 
may have seen his plants decorating several offices 
around campus. 

•Only two brave souls are graduating in May 1996 with 
a Chemistry major— Stephanie Carouthers and Natalia 
Baranovskaya. 

•In 1993 AT&T® gave Oglethorpe a grant to add a 
computer lounge in Goslin.

Social Psychology analyzes the individual in the 
;ontext of the society in which he or she lives. For 
:xample, if you wanted to analyze the individuals who 
each sociology and psychology at Oglethorpe, you 
vould find that their individual personalities and pecu- 
iarities fit together remarkably well into a cohesive 
ubculture of the professoriate. First, a look at Dr. Stone. 
le is so organized that his study questions and class 
landouts have been known to spill over into his col- 
sagues' classrooms. Fascinating and inspirational though 
le is, if you cut off his arms, he simply could not teach, 
slow Dr. Kerr. We love her because we fear her, and we 



fear her because she is a cognitive psychologist, and she 
knows how we think. Dr. Woolfolk epitomizes the role 
of the college professor— immaculate, intellectual, sur- 
prisingly entertaining--and yet unable to set down his 
jacket without first turning his jacket lining-side out. 
Then we have Dr. Hand. He teaches classes which are 
quite scientific, and yet always mixes current issues with 
the molecules. Students learn more about the actual 
workings of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol in his classes 
than we are able to discover on the weekends. The 
subculture these professors create is another Oglethorpe 
anomaly.

Joe Ancis once said, 
"The only normal people are 
the ones you don't know very 
well." That explains a great 
deal about Oglethorpe. For 
years people have been marvel- 
ling at the collection of weird, 
eccentric, troubled, and mania- 
cal people who comprise the 
Oglethorpe student body. One 
student asked if weird people 
are drawn to Oglethorpe, or if 
people come here and then 
become weird. Perhaps neither 
is true. It may be a result of the 
school being so small, and the 
fact that everyone knows every- 
one a little too well, which 
leads us to the impression that 
Oglethorpe students are so 
strange. Gossip travels with 
mesmerizing speed, washing 
over dorms and down hallways 
as only a flood of half truths 
and bad information can. In the 
rest of the world, individuals 
can conceal a few eccentrici- 
ties, forget a few mistakes. The 
Oglethorpe memory, however, 
is unforgiving, and nothing 
perpetrated on campus can 
remain unknown. What is 
anomalous about the 
Ogleth i-pe student body is not 
the chara ' er of its members, 
but the faci ^t we are all 
acquainted.

Being a member in an 
organization is more than just a 
way to occupy your time. At 
Oglethorpe, membership de- 
fines who you are. 

"Oh, you know Mary 
what's-her-name. She's in APO, 
writes for the Petrel..." 

Suddenly recognition 
dawns, "Oh, yeah, that Mary." 
A student is not merely Mary or 
John. She or he is Kashima 
Mary or International Club 
John. Just as organizations have 
an impact on an individual's 
idendty, a handful of individu- 
als can easily change an 
organization's identity. Organi- 
zations at Oglethorpe are best 
characterized as very small and 
subject to turbulent change. 
Leaders beg and scramble for 
more members; members 
stretch the demands of several 
organizations at once. Everyone 
is more and more involved and 
yet leaders are always talking 
about how apathetic their mem- 
bers are. The act of balancing 
one organization with another, 
and all organizations with 
studies, is a stressful task. It is 
easy to focus on one organiza- 
tion, one piece of your identity, 
such that other groups are 
neglected. Oglethorpe has so 
many organizations and so few 
students that there are never 
enough members to suit 
anyone's needs.

The 1995-96 team boasted three veteran 
players: Stephen Cooper, Elizabeth Stockton, 
and Susan Shirley. All three had played for four 
years at Oglethorpe. The first team, along with 
seven other Oglethorpe players, participated in 
six tournaments as nearby as Georgia Tech and 
as far away as Mississippi State. The team's best 
showing was at the Ben-y tournament, where it 
placed third in a twelve team field. Stephen 
Cooper was the team's top scorer and was se- 
lected for several tournament all star teams. In 
addition, OAT sponsored a high school tourna- 
ment, the second annual Stomiy Petrel Academic 
Tournament (SPAT) in October. SPAT drew 
about twenty high schools from Georgia and 
South CaroUna.

The Black Student Caucus is an organiza- 
tion that promotes Afro- American awareness on 
campus. The organization works hard throughout 
the year to plan activities to keep up the campus' 
awareness. This year the Black Student Caucus 
organized an on-campus free-for-all party, and 
most importantly, planned and presented numer- 
ous activities for Black History Month. Two of 
the most memorable events of that month were 
the candle light vigil and the key-note speaker 
Benjamin Chavis. The Black Student Caucus is 
is open to all students.

A hundred years ago French was the

an educated person. Even the Russian royalty 
spoke French at court. Today, however, as 
America gains power in the international realm, 
and France is no longer the colonial power it 
once was, the popularity of the French language 
is fading from American life. As the old joke 
goes, a person who speaks two languages is 
bilingual, and a person who speaks three lan- 
guages is trilingual. What do you call a person 
who speaks one language? American. Le Circle 
Francais is seeking to reverse this cultural back- 
sliding by keeping the use of French alive in the 
university setting. After all, a language as beauti- 
ful as French should never be forgotten, not even 
in America.

"Donde esta el bano?" wonders one of 
Oglethorpe's intemacionales. Another student 
celebrates the foreign customs of a far-off land, 
while yet another Petrel exchanges international 
recipes during one of the many international 
days in the small dining room. But learning how 
to make French toast is just one of the many 
reasons Oglethorpe's popular International Club 
continues to draw members from all over cam- 
pus. A celebration of diversity is too mild a 
description for a club that teaches us that what 
is most exciting about being different is our 
innate sameness. It is the very sameness of our 
Oglethorpe that provides the backdrop for the 
world of diversity that is all around us. It is this 
contrast that is the main goal of the Interna- 
tional Club as they forge forward to share and 
entrust in us the cultures of the world; that, and 
they eat a lot of French toast.

Who are those people you see wearing 
black, long-sleeved t-shirts with a gold petrel on 
the back? Most hkely they are "O" Club mem- 
bers, but they could be sneaky roommates who 
borrowed the coveted shirts. "O" Club members 
earn the right to wear the Petrel by lettering in a 
sport for two years. Their job is to support and 
promote athletics at Oglethoipe. Activities in- 
clude aiding in recruiting and on visitation days 
for high school seniors. They also sponsor a 
college basketball Final Four party in the Bomb 
Shelter. The "O" Club also purchased some 
equipment for the Schmidt Center. In the future, 
when you see some golden petrels, help them 
support Oglethorpe athletics and take pride in 
your Petrel teams.

This year the Ambassadors gave 1 50 
tours, housed 30 prospective students overnight, 
called 560 students, and smiled at dozens of 
people on visitation days. No one is truly an 
Ambassador, though, until he or she has survived 
a Tour from Hell. Yes, in the course of meeting 
many sweet families and intelligent students, one 
is bound to encounter that anomaly among tours 
which amounts to forty-five minutes of misery. 
Tours from Hell come in several varieties. 
There's the silent tour. Not even the best anec- 
dotes, quips, and follies can induce these people 
to speak. Then there's the paranoid tour group, 
including the protective dad and the psycho mom 
who want to discuss campus security, locked 
windows, and visitation hours the whole time. 
Even in the face of Tours from Hell, however. 
Ambassadors keep smiling, keep talking, and 
keep their fingers crossed when assuring Dad 
that campus security is tight.

The Oglethorpe Student Association mas- 
terminds the expenditure of the controversial 
student activity fee. They have a collosal sum of 
money to spend on entertainment and other 
programs for the students. This year they orga- 
nized such events as the fall carnival and 
Springfest. The elected members of OSA have 
all the power. All the money. All the fame and 
glory. Yes, sometimes it seems they are the only 
students who matter. The rest of us students 
wander helplessly through our college years 
attending the grand events that OSA plans for us. 
We are like children and they our keepers, our 
benefactors, our wardens. Damn, they don't 
belong in the Organizations section of this book, 
they belong with the Estabhshment. They are the 
Establishment. The Entertainment Establishment 
of Oglethorpe. And they're good at it. too.

ODK invites academic leaders into its 
circle. The selective honor fraternity attempts to 
bring Oglethorpe's finest students, faculty, and 
staff together. Following a careful and mysteri- 
ous selection process, new members are tapped 
on the shoulder in class and invited to join the 
robed procession. At Boar's Head new inductees 
got a mouthful of swine snout to accompany an 
earful of Cramer. ODK activities included a 
successful Geek Week and a faculty-staff appre- 
ciation reception.

The print below the masthead proclaims, 
"Above and Beyond Oglethorpe University," and 
the dedicated staff and editors of The Stormy 
Petrel try to achieve this lofty goal on a bi- 
weekly basis. Striving to inform, enlighten, and 
entertain, the student-run newspaper works 
feverishly for a fortnight to produce a quality 
paper. Though they occupy Oglethoipe's minds 
and conversations, even the finest efforts of the 
Petrel meet neglect as the timely and compelling 
becomes irrelevant and obscure. Like 1 100 ice 
sculptures in 11 -point font, each issue of 
Oglethorpe's primary publication poses the ques- 
tion: where does the Petrel go after the storm?

The University Singers love to use their 
talents in service of the Petrel spirit. Spangled 
golden belts and somber black evening attire 
added that touch of formality to Boar's Head, 
Oglethorpe Day, and the Honors Convocation. 
The Singers braved bored high school students in 
Cartersville, entertained an old man in Chatta- 
nooga, and delighted sleepy Baptists in Nash- 
ville, despite Carrie Adkin's pink eye and the 
pressure of papers and exams. As a finale, the 
University Singers and alumni filled Lupton 
Auditorium with the lilting songs of Sydney 
Lanier.

If Thucydides were 
called upon to give a reliable 
account of a Greek life in 1996, 
his response would include 
descriptions of groups, letters, 
siblings, cafeteria placement, 
houses, theme parties, formals, 
mixers, party-flavored parties, 
colors, connection, fall rush, 
bids, pledges, and Greek Week. 
Doubtless the classical historian 
would see connections between 
modern interfraternity rivalries 
and the commotion which he 
observed in his own time dur- 
ing the Peloponnesian War. 
How much Oglethorpe's six 
Greek organizations resemble 
Helen or hoplites is intriguing 
and inconsequential. Whether 
antiquity could appreciate the 
boom and bump and grind of a 
frat party is a question for the 
ages.

Greek Week 1 996 was marked by some of the 
closest competition in recent memory, but more impor- 
tant than winning and losing is the fun Greeks have, not 
only with their own brothers and sisters, but also with the 
brothers and sisters of other fraternities and sororities. 
The bonding that takes place among the members of 
each fraternity or sorority could arguably make Greek 
Week one of the best brother- or sisterhood building 
events that each fraternity and sorority take part in all 
year. 

Some of the Greek Week events are softball, 
football, field events (including the doughnut eating 
contest), the best dressed Greek, and the skit competi- 
tion. This year Delta Sig truly had cause to celebrate, 
though, as they won Greek Week following a five year 
winning streak by ZAE. Despite the arguing and bicker- 
ing inevitably brought about by competition, everyone 
comes away from Greek Week feeling fulfilled (often 
with doughnuts) and closer to everyone involved.

If the University of Geor- 
gia competes against Missis- 
sippi State, anyone who cheers 
for the Bulldogs cancels himself 
out. When Louisville matches 
up against Stanford, things can 
get confusing. In Division III 
athletics and beyond, a cheer for 
the Stormy Petrels can mean 
only one thing. No one roots for 
Stormy Petrels without rooting 
for Oglethoipe. Even an 
Audubon Society member 
celebrating the most determined 
and inspiring of seabirds will 
likely distinguish himself from 
a die-hard Oglethoipian; the 
Audubon Society member will 
probably say it wrong (though 
perhaps he should get an e for 
effort). Ornithologists should 
know best how the bird's flight, 
feet near the ocean, earned the 
Petrel its name (an allusion to 
St. Peter's walking on water). 
And if the same ornithologist 
were to watch an Oglethorpe 
sporting contest, he would see 
that the Petrels are nobody's 
pet.
