Ahh. . .Pompeii! Casey and his dress (see page 14) would fit 
right in with the other Greek actors (who were also forced to 
play women) in this large classic theater from 1 AD.

Iord Byron's lament may 
or may not be justified; 
after all, where is the 
beauty of the ancient theater, 
the flawless architecture of the 
colisseum, the scintillating art- 
work of the Renaissance, today? 
It's right here at Oglethorpe Uni- 
versity (duh!). Have you taken a 
close look at Hermance lately? 
(If not, flip back a couple of 
pages.) When did you last at- 

tend a Playmakers' or 
an Alpha Psi Omega 
show? Have you ever 
set foot in the 
Oglethorpe University 
Museum? Our school is a living, 
breathing tribute to beautiful 
antiquity at its finest. Ourliberal 
arts educational sytem was not 
only founded by the ancients, 
but every other aspect of the 
school emulates the ancients as 

well,performing arts to student body,ath- 
letics to architecture. Take a trip with us 
from these ancient cultures to the contem- 
porary mirror-images of our campus to- 
day. After all, as Erasmus says,"lt is an un- 
scrupulous intellect that does not pay to 
antiquity its due reverence."

Oglethorpian events from 
XO's Halloween party to our

Honneconning absolutely reeked of 
ancient Pagan rituals, just another 
festive habit we picked up from an- 
cestors of yore. What. . .you're sur- 
prised?! Did the ancient Celts and 
Druids dance around bonfires. . .you 
bet they did! The Greeks and Romans 
were just as guilty of paganism. . . St. 
Valentine may have been a real saint, 
but did you really think those hearts 
into which his holiday evolved had 

anything to do with Catholicism? 
Be it belief in funny little elves or 
dressing up like the fantastical 
high priest Papa Smurf, the re- 
sidual effects of paganism are rife, 
even in our largely Judeo-Chris- 
tian community. You must even 
question the intent of the Trick - 
or-Treat in Traer do-gooders, 
whose reading to the children in- 
volves a book on chickens and all 
the fun voodoo spells one can 
cast with them-don't be fooled

Unless man is committed to the belief that all 

mankind are his brothers, then he labors in vain 

and hypocritically in the vineyards of equality. 

-^dam Clayton ^owelljr 

Even though he hasn't been 
dead for multiple millenia, 
Adam Clayton Powell's 
ideas are still universal. His words 
echo the idea of equality for all 
mankind begun in the 
democratic city-state of Athens; 
of course,then,"all mankind"was 
composed of white property- 
holding males, but we've come a 
long way, baby! Ofcourse,onthis 
campus, some mankind are more 
"brothers" than others. ..and sis- 

ters, too! Oglethorpe boasts of 
quite a large population of sib- 
ling combos, and while a few are 
depicted here, you can find more 
in the student section. Whether 
playing a sport, playing around, 
or just mugging for the camera, 
these family relations are surely 
recognizable to the diligent cam- 
pus eye. . .and what better way to 
illustrate our link to past genera- 
tions than through current stu- 
dent familial relations?

We have a museum ? 

Indeed, it exists. Enter the library, take a right, enter the elevator, and press 
3. You thought it was storage, didn't you? No, actually, it's home to an 
anomaly; most schools the size of Oglethorpe could only dream of having a mu- 
seum, period, but to have one of such prestige, rivaling larger university muse- 
ums. . . it' s unheard of. Beginning in the Fall of 1996 , thousands of community 
visitors flocked to see the Buddha Maitreya, gold figurines praising Tibetan art, 
and real Tibetan monks delicately channeling colored sand into a round canvas, 
the result being a sand mandala. The Dalai Lama actually visited Oglethorpe' s 
most celebrated art exhibit- - how many of your state school friends can say thatl 
This year alone, the OU Museum has been home to the incredibly life-like 
sculptures of past OU professor Duane Hanson, the realism of Jack Beal, and the 
watercolors of Herman Hesse. They're developing a pretty snazzy permanent 
collection also. In addition, periodic lecture series give museum patrons 
an opportunity to hear the works discussed, such as the recent series on 
Herman Hesse , novelist and poet as well as artist. See what you' re miss- 
ing! There's a gift shop full of beautiful things, handpicked by Museum 
Manager Kathleen Guy; there are galas, lectures, and other public events 
coordinated by OU alumnus and longtime Museum drone Chad Vaughn; 
there' s art; there' s peaceful music; there' s Professor/ Director Lloyd Nick, 
and that, in itself, is worth the trip.

^rf at Oglethorpe: 


I know, I know, it's probably a little too shocking to find out about 
the existence of the Museum and art classes all in one day- - 1 mean , 
what do they think this is , a liberal arts university? Sorry guys, if you 
want to avoid the culture , stay in Lupton , because it' s rampant. Since 
it's true that many students at Oglethorpe have never taken an art 
class, and some of the more clueless didn't even know that they had 
the option, this page is dedicated to bringing you the very finest in 
documentation that art classes do exist. We have chosen also to put 
in pictures of art so you can see exactly what these art classes produce. 
Hopefully one day to offer a major, OU's art program currently gives 
students the option of learning a wide variety of skills, from print- 
making to sculpture to painting. Drop by the Faith Hall studio some- 
time, and you're sure to run into devoted artists putting the finishing 
touches on their creative projects, even into the wee hours of the 
morning. How do you think we got these photos?

Wreaking Jia]POC 
with Cameras 

Photography is not only the art of taking pictures that are aesthetically 
pleasing, but pictures that have the ability to change the way people view 
the world. . . not to mention one of the hardest classes in which to enroll 
at Oglethorpe. Students who are fortunate enough to actually get into this 
class go out on picture- taking frenzies all over campus trying to finish their 
many and varied assignments, and also have the honor of reeking of pho- 
tographic chemicals afterwards. Two of Oglethorpe' s best known photo- 
graphic geniuses are Jeremy Greenup, a Senior, and Collins Yates , a Sopho- 
more. Jeremy is best known for hyper- sensory images of people; the view- 
ers may experience a sense of witnessing a scene from someone's life, or 
feel involved in a more movie- esque dream sequence- -in either case, all 
senses react to the strong and overwhelming incarnations. Collins' photos 
capture candid moments in the lives of those around her and natural set- 
tings; the beauty of her work earned an Excellence in Photography Award 
at the Honors and Awards Convocation. Both she and Jeremy were fea- 
tured in the art show that took place in Hearst, as well as the photography 

exhibition in the Library.

The 1998 Fall Semester proved to be one full of theatrical perfor- 
mances. Lupton Auditorium had its fill of life beginning with Al- 
pha Psi Omega' s production of The Dining Room and then moving 
on to the Shadowbox Players' Night of One Acts. New to 
Oglethorpe's theatrical arena, Night of One Acts featured six stu- 
dent- written and directed plays. The independent theater organi- 
zation, consisting of both novices and more well- seasoned perform- 
ers, no doubt made its debut a riveting success. Not to be left out of 
the limelight, the Conant Performing Arts Center received its share 
of attention in November with the Playmaker' s production oi Iphigenia 
at Auh's. Two new Oglethorpe primadonnas Jesse Demaria and 
Chalon Payne injected hot, fresh, young blood into the Playmaker' s 
tragedy, setting the Conant Center ablaze.

Spring [)r€du€ti€n$: 

Independents 'Take the Stage 

This Spring Oglethorpe witnessed a surprising crescendo of independent 
theater productions starting off with the Shadowbox Players' production of 
Steven Sondheim's musical Company. Company was the biggest produc- 
tion by far this Spring, bringing in the largest crowds for a theater perfor- 
mance in Oglethorpe history. Other independent productions included 
All in the Timing, performed under Carla Hyman's direction, and Jeremy 
Greenup' s self- written and directed play , He Dances Fright. These unique 
producrtions made for an entertaining night of student- produced plays. 
Not to go unnoticed, the Playmakers, under the direction of Lee 
Knippenberg, kicked off the Spring theater season with its annual Children' s 
Play ( including not only Playmakers but also Dean Tucker) . Although it 
was obviously geared towards children, it was an enjoyment to both the 
young, and the not- so- young- looking. Noises Off, a hilarious play that 
shows what truly goes on backstage, was Playmakers' major performance 


d the final one of this year. The love triangles, droplines, and barely- 

there costumes gave the play an air of reality seldom found on the stage.

There are many niusicans at Oglethorpe. Some are talented, some try. 
Many Oglethorpe students had the chance to hear and enjoy each of 
these bands during the Battle of the Bands in the Upper Quad. The 
bands that came out were Chronic Pentatonic, a definitely unique and 
talented band with a sound that's hard to describe with just one word. 
Dark Night of Soul and Hart- O-Maniahoth featured Hart Master D on 
vocals. Deep Waters was the big winner this year however, earning the 
privilege of opening for The Connells during Stomp the Lawn. With 
Oglethorpians Chad Mozley on vocals and Jim Payne on drums, Deep 
Waters is a Christian band with talent. Jim Payne, especially, seemed to 
be Big Man on Campus this year playing in Deep Waters, Poor Man's

Seven Day Jesus, also had the opportunity to perform for Oglethorpe

The Singers have hit a high note this year, sounding the best they 
have in years and finally moving out of Lupton and into the 
Conant Center thanks to the generosity of Mr. and Mrs. John 
Conant. Celebrating this transition, the Singers performed 
Henry Purcell's Come Ye Sons o/y4rf with a baroque orchestra and 
three professional soloists in addition to their Fall Concert 
material. The Singers perform a wide variety of music ranging 
from serious works from composers such as Brahms to tongue- in- 
cheek pieces like Cheek to Cheek, a nocturnal tango that even 
moved Dr. Ray's cheeks. At the Boar's Head concert. Dr. Ray 
and his wife competed for center stage as both of their choirs 
performed separately as well as together; "F m not practicing 
nepotism, they just happen to be a very talented youth choir, " Dr. 
Ray swears. The Singers' activities this year included a 
restful trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee and a workshop with the 
Scholars of London choral group. The Singers concluded a 
successful year with "Mozart's Mass in C Major, " performed in 
conjunction with the Dekalb Choral Guild and the Atlanta 
Chamber Orchestra. This year for the Singers was so successful 
because they were able to perform with many different groups of 
people; they were more than happy to share the spotlight, unlike 
their self- absorbed concerts of the past.

The ins and outs 
of £earning: 

In and Out of the Classroom, that is. . . 

One of the many advantages of going to a school near a big city is the 
plethora of opportunities for career development and advancement; fu- 
ture plans are molded through not only academics but through experien- 
tial education as well. Students who intern are able to get an edge on 
the job market and to see what careers are available in their field of 
interest. The Carter Center, Eggleston Children's Hospital, the Geor- 
gia Shakespeare Festival, the Atlanta History Center, the High Mu- 
seum, Atlanta Magazine, CNN, the Capitol, you name it, OU stu- 
dents have done it, all thanks to the wonderful women of Goodman, 
Kate Williams and Katherine Nobles. Kate Williams is making quite a 
splash for a rookie here at Oglethorpe, as Intern Coordinator as well as 
Urban Leadership Director. With these women' s help, there is no short- 
age of opportunities and no limits to which Oglethorpe students will not 
go to intern. Not all shining stars have internships; many students at 
Oglethorpe stand out above the rest due to their involvement and scho- 
lastic achievement. For whatever reason, every student honored here is 
counted among the creme de la creme, the cream of the crop, the soup 
du jour (no wait, don' t eat the soup! ) here at Oglethorpe and their hard 
work and active involvement deserves recognition.

That's Latin for Honor Societies in case

There are many honor societies at Oglethorpe University, so many in fact 
that there was no possible way to mention every one on this humble page. 
There is room, however, to mention a few. Order of Omega is one of 
these prestigious honor societies. This society honors those students who 
exhibit outstanding leadership in Greek organizations. The new induct- 


were Pat DiCicco and Kristen Kirkland (present in the picture) , and 

Kip Chambers, Mandy McDow, and Heather Cordeiro (in absentia). 
Alpha Chi prides itself on having members with the most outstanding 
academic records at Oglethorpe; only those with OP As in the top 10% of 
the Junior and Senior class are privy to this honor. Last, but certainly 
not least, is OAK, its exclusive circle being limited to fifteen students. 
To be inducted into OAK, one must master involvement in several of five 
areas: scholarship, honors and organizations, athletics, student govern- 
ment and supporting committees, and the media, publications, and per- 
forming arts. Then, once in OAK, one must master the Force.

Breaking Out of the 
Oglethorpe Bubble 

I know it's terrifying, but after all, we sent the Seniors off with quite a 
reception, a raucous round of applause, and the one thing for which 
they came here: their diploma! Now get out there and make a Uving, 
you punks! In all seriousness, it was a beautiful ceremony and a equally 
lovely day; the sunshine in the sky only caused a few fainting casualties, 
mainly the parents of those students more acclimated towards Northern 
climates. President Emeritus Donald Stanton took us through the past, 
present, and future of Oglethorpe University, reminding us that "The 
Stormy Petrel Still Flies, " President Larry Large spoke words of inspira- 
tion to the departing Class of 1999, and Senior Class President Jeremy 
Greenup spoke candidly to those with whom he's spent the past four 
years of his life. The Singers sang beautifully, the graduates sat still, 
somber and at the same time joyous, until that all- satisfying moment at 
which they each walked across the stage, to cries of delight from friends 
and family. When it was all over, the merrymaking began (it took 
little imagination to "Party Like It's 1999") . It's truly a time of new 
beginnings for all graduates of 1999, and we wish them the best. Come

hey, this is Oglethorpe. We abuse 
everything we touch, and our wit is 
of a higher caliber than that of the

Power corrupts, and absolute power 
corrupts absolutely. Therefore,

"The Boar's Head is a big ole' head, they lopped 
it off a pig; it's big and it's stinky and it smells 
really bad. . ." If Saturday Night Live did a rendi- 
tion of the Boar's Head carol, it would go some- 
thing like this. The true lyrics buried amidst re- 
corder-playing and the initiates' gagging at the 
smell of their supposed fare, this version is at least 
an approriate summation. Besides, Olde English 
is so passe. Marking the traditional opening to 
the Christmas Season here at Oglethorpe, Omi- 
cron Delta Kappa presents the Boar's Head festi- 
val as a supplement to its annual initiation. Fes- 
tivities this year included a reading from Para- 
dise Lost by Dr. McFarland. a performance by the 
Oglethorpe University Singers, and the reading of 
the Boar's Head tale. As legend has it, a vicious 
boar, ferocious nostrils flaring, charged the stu- 
dent Copcot as he walked peacefully in the forest 
of Shotover. The Queen's College student really 
fixed that pig's wagon with a dose of Aristotle 
down its throat; his battle cry was "Wisdom con- 
quers even the treacherous beast." Reports vary 
as to whether he added "you apple-sucking swine." 
At any rate, in celebration of the youth's bravery, 
we now revere a pig's head, its aromatic fragrance 
wafting over the new initiates in the front row. Did 
I mention they get to kiss it?

As the day awakens clear and chilly, the sound 
of bagpipes cuts the silence: another Oglethorpe 
Day has dawned. Once again, classes are 
moved and schedules reorganized in order for 
students, faculty, and alumni to give thanks for 
the past, present, and future of Oglethorpe 
University. Deeming James Edward 
Oglethorpe's birthday as the day for revelry, 
students gather to watch the thrilling "Petrels of 
Fire" race, in which mere mortals race to beat 
the furious clanging of Lupton's bells. Follow- 
ing the mad dash around the quad, bystanders 
march to the Conant Center for the traditional 
performances and speeches. Paul Hudson 
opened the ceremony with a brief description 
and explanation of this year's theme: "In Pur- 
suit of the Millennium: Thornwell Jacobs and 
Cosmic History at Oglethorpe." Immediately 
following was the original one-act play, "Cos- 
mic Thing" (Not the B-52 album) written by 
Jeremy Jeffra, which provided a glimpse into 
the much-feared Cosmic History course once 
required of every graduating Senior. Appar- 
ently, this study of the history of earth from the 
very beginning of time put even Human Nature 
to shame. The ceremony closed with insignia- 
clad Singers performing the 
Alma Mater. Lunch was served 
in the Milky Way Galaxy, the 
Black Hole, and Mars; of 
course, shuttles every fifteen 
minutes from the student center 
provided transportation.

It's a time for school spirit, big parties, 
and a touch of pyrotechnics. Home- 
coming '99 was no exception. Junior 
class President Katie Coakley decided 
to show Oglethorpe "Where the Wild 
Things Are" and planned accordingly. 
The schedule ran a little differently this 
year with the bonfire on Thursday 
night, the basketball game on Friday 
night followed by the block party, and 
the dance on Saturday night. The 
Petrel's victory over Southwestern 
roused the fans and put a decidedly fes- 
tive mood in the air. That festive mood 
carried over to the club/concert hall, 
The Tabernacle, providing the neces- 
sary ambience so different from the 
normal, stuffy Holiday Inn ballroom. 
The band didn't hurt either; scantily 
clad in grass skirts, mesh shirts, and 
halter tops. Members Only seduced the 
crowd with '80s hits known and loved 
by all. (At least half the women in the 
audience were in love with hula boy.) 
By night's end, everyone was a little 
wilder, and better for it.

'Twas a typical school night in 

Oglethorpe town; the students were 

studying or fooling around. 

When all of a sudden a phone call was 

placed, that circled the dorms at a most 

rapid pace. 
"Look outside, look outside, you've got 
to see this! It's snowing, I swear it, save 

your work to a disk! 

We're going to play in the snow-I'm not 

lying— screw studying, stop whining, I 

know that you're tired." 
From Upper Quad and New Dorm and 
Traer they came, laughing and shouting 

and calling out names. 
For students to join in the white revelry, 
that had fallen from heaven at quarter to 


So all through the night the laughter was 

heard as frisbee games and snow fights 

continually occurred. 
But alas, the next morning, 
classes began, and the snow 
starting melting right out of 

our hands. 

But no one can forget that 

one glorious night when the 

snow covered everything 

and blinded our sight.

Programmiiig Board 

They don't just spend your money. . .they spend it well. 

Quad Quamival. Casino Night. Stomp the Lawn. 
While these are expected annual events, they by no 
means encompass all that the Programming Board ac- 
complishes in a school yeai". After a major overhaul. 
Programming Board emerged bright and shiny new 
with Jerry Portwood heading up the group. Under 
his expert guidance, Programming Board sponsored 
and co-sponsored over twenty events. The year 
started off with the re- spelled Quad Quamival featur- 
ing inflatable games (a must at any good shindig), for- 
tune tellers, and henna tatoos. James Randi debunked 
the mystical and magical in the Fall, and students 
pressed their luck in the cafeteria at Casino Night. 
Swing Night was held in the gym with Mike Fulford 
acting as DJ and instructor and Virgin Bourbon trans- 
formed the Traer courtyard into a Oglethorpian New 
Orleans (sans Red Light District, of course). How- 
ever, Programming Board not only plans their own 
events, they co-sponsor other groups as well. With- 
out Programming Board, the music of Seven Day 
Jesus would not have pulsed from Lupton auditorium 
and the talented Oglethorpe acting eUte would not have 
been able to entertain the masses in "Company." So, 
call them "joiners" if you must. But by all means, re- 
spect them. They don'tjust spend your money. They 
spend your money well. 

Above: As a result of Programming Board, 
students discovered their hidden pottery 
skills and made beautiful pieces of artwork;

This ain't your daddy's frisbee. 

The past academic year was very promis- 
ing for the Oglethorpe Ultimate Disc 
Association. An excited group of Fresh- 
man bolstered the numbers to nearly two 
dozen at times. Another big development 
came from adding Ultimate as an intra- 
mural sport. With a somewhat higher 
profile on campus, they are looking to- 
ward seeing some new, as well as more 
familiar, faces next year. Additionally, a 
number of Oglethorpe students have 
begun to play Ultimate outside of the 
bubble (what? We can go outside of the 
bubble?). This serves to increase their 
reknown and improve their talent. With 
no Seniors to lose, they hope to soon 
become officially recognized as a campus 
organization, begin practicing on the 
weekends, and travel to some out- 
of-state tournaments. Right now, 
Oglethorpe Ultimate is all potential.

Stomp the Lawn 

This year marked a first in Stomp the 
Lawn history. Instead of Springfesters 
joining in the festivities, the visitation 
weekend was broken into two "Make the 
Connection" weekends. Needless to say, 
the absence of high school seniors did 
not dampen the spirits of Oglethorpe 
students nor did the rain that threatened 
that morning. Instead, the sun shone 
brightly as students waded in the sound 
of Deep Waters, laughed at the antics of 
Dad's Garage, and chilled with The 
Connells. In addition, booths were scat- 
tered around the Academic Quad as 
fortune tellers mystified their wary cus- 
tomers and faculty got their just desserts. 
The dunking booth was popular this year, 
but EZZ's pie-throwing fund-raiser auc- 
tion was by far the most attended. For 
what seemed a small fee, Oglethorpians 
were given the chance to take out a little 
frustration on various members of faculty 
and staff such as Sarah 
Hinkle, Bernard Potts and 
Professor Doyle. Who said 
that revenge isn't sweet?

"Hi, and welcome to Oglethorpe University! I'm 
(insert Ambassador name here) and I'll be leading 
your tour today. . ." Can you picture those bright 
smiles and happy faces that just emanate love for 
OU? Anyone can tell you, that's how you can 
identify an Ambassador. They don't get much 
attention, for their job is less flashy than some others 
around campus. But, if you pay close attention, you 
may see a small group of people that you don't 
recognize walking around like ducks. Chances are, 
an Ambassador is playing Mama Duck. This year 
presented new challenges for the Ambassadors and 
Admissions staff. Instead of one Springfest week- 
end, two "Make the Connection" weekends were 
held. During this Sunday-Monday overnight visit, 
prospective students were bussed around Atlanta, 
visiting various landmarks such as the revolving 
restaurant at the Weston-Peachtree, Centennial 
Park, and the Varsity. Following scavenger hunt- 
type clues, the prospectives found a new contact at 
each destination; each new activity allowed them the 
chance to bond with each other and Ambassadors. 
While the 'festers were missed at Stomp the Lawn, 
there is no doubt that the endless bus ride and 
assorted antics captured and held their deUght for 
hours. Additionally, their absence from any merri- 
ment designed for older students 
surely fostered a much more positive 
image of Oglethorpe in their young, 
impressionable minds-the only thing 
that made these kids' stomachs lurch 
was good, wholesome Varsity food!

"Tis a far, far better thing doing stuff for other 
people." This misquote by Alicia Silverstone's 
character in "Clueless" does a pretty good job of 
summing up community service. Not only do you 
help your fellow man (or woman), but you get a 
warm, fuzzy feeling to go along with it. Several 
organizations on campus, such as AOQ, Amnesty 
International, and the newly reinstated Circle K, 
are devoted solely to helping humanity and par- 
ticipate in activities ranging from the AIDSwalk 
Atlanta to collecting supphes for hurricane victims. 
Can anyone forget the sight of all those little kids 
running around Traer for AOQ's Trick-or-Treat in 
Traer? However, other groups on campus get in 
on the fun as well. The Greek community is dedi- 
cated to helping the less fortunate and volunteers 
many hours to various organizations such as Scot- 
tish Rite, the Boys and Girls Club, and various 
nursing homes around Atlanta. While we live the 
lives of hard- working college students, it is clear 
that we cannot live by Aristotle and Analytical 
Geometry alone. So, when you're feeling stressed 
out and cranky, get out there and lend a hand. It's 
amazing what you get back.

Alpha Phi 

With rush held both in the Fall and Spring, Alpha Phi Omega grows stronger every 
year. As a service fraternity, AOQ's members venture into the local community to 
offer their love, support, and labor to needy families, children, AIDS patients. . .the 
list goes on. By visiting orphanages and children's hospitals, they brighten a child's 
day. Through Project Open Hand, they cook food for AIDS patients. AOQ even 
sponsors the annual Trick- or-Treat in Traer, which gives the children from the Boys 
and Girls Club an opportunity to visit Oglethorpe and receive candy from Traer 
residents. This year, fraternity members took a break to camp out on Blackrock 
Mountain. Though snow prevented them from clearing trails, it did not prevent 
them from having a good time. Through fun-filled ser\'ice and a loyal brotherhood, 
members are able to give back to the community and feel a close bond themselves. 
They are proud of their fraternity, and not a day goes by when those gold letters are 
not spotted on someone's chest. Thanks, AOQ, for showing all of us that college 
students can make a difference!

Chi Omega 

As the Saturday of move-in arrives, the 
freshman students may notice bright 
eyed girls rushing to lend a hand, er. . .or 
back, as the case may be. These girls are 
adorned with strange symbols across 
their chests; while some wear the triple 
sigma, others boast the "X and Horse- 
shoe." These are the girls of the Chi 
Omega Fraternity. It soon becomes 
clear that these girls are a force to be 
reckoned with. Attend a Playmakers 
event-you'll see a Chi O. Support your 
athletic teams and you'll notice girls on 
the field and in the stands who proudly 
flaunt their letters. Their activities are 
varied throughout the honor societies 
and athletic teams as well as service and 
literary groups. Within the fraternity, 
XQ participates in many different ser- 
vice projects such as the Scottish Rite 
Art of the Season, in addition to the 
usual social functions. As with every- 
thing on the Oglethorpe 
campus, things are not as 
they may sometimes ap- 
pear: these girls are not 
your typical bowheads!

To the naked eye, it may look as if all fraternities are 
basically the same. However, once orientation is over 
and the students get into the groove of things, it be- 
comes obvious that nothing is exactly as it seems. After 
the first CF party of the year, students come to ex- 
pect outlandish flyers, hamburgers on the top deck, 
and brothers that double as sisters. Despite this some- 
what bizarre description, the brothers of CF know 
how to throw a party and have some good, clean, 
old-fashioned fun. As hosts of some of the most memo- 
rable parties of the year such as Pimp N' Ho, Drag 
Party and CF Halloween, the boys get the chance to 
let go of their everyday stress (and dress, on occa- 
sion). Fortunately, they extend this opportunity to the 
rest of the campus as well. However, there is more 
to this fraternity than techno music and tiaras. After 
their unfortunate expulsion from Greek Week, the 
brothers resorted to what they felt was their only 
choice in the situation. On that fateful Sunday night, 
five brothers took the stage to the strains of "You 
Can Leave Your Hat On" and preceded to wow the 
audience with their incredible dance moves and cloth- 
ing removal techniques. The audience went crazy as 
assorted sorority girls drooled and whistled at the 
exhibition. "Playgirl" extended offers to graduating 
Seniors Jeremy Greenup and Pat 
DiCicco; the other boys have de- 
cided to obtain their degrees first.

Once again, the brothers of ALO have really 
outdone themselves. Famous for their "Get

an oasis for thirsty freshman girls. How- 
ever, after the unfortunate Hunch Punch 
incident, the brothers were unable to use 
their Egyptian aphrodisiac to seduce the 
women of campus anymore. Affirmative 
action was taken by Ms. Amy Lantz, Greek 
Affairs coordinator extraordinaire, and AZO 
was put on social probation. The rest of the 
year saw a much quieter, gentler side of the 
brotherhood. Even Greek Week seemed to 
have lost much of its spunk when this very 
musically talented group couldn't get 
enough brothers together to participate in the 
Sing. However, all was well when the Skits 
came around. Their "Fraternity Feud" both 
enlightened and unified the members of the 
Greek community at OU when they revealed 
the number one answer to the question of 
what most Oglethoipe University students 
want to toss~the Greek Affairs Coordinator!

Sure, they're clandestine in that they don't flaunt

ternity on this campus goes by the name AI, or as 
we lovingly like to call it, those "Damn Indepen- 
dents." From reorganizing student clubs to lead- 
ing some of OU's sports teams to victory, all of 
these students have made a tremendous impact 
on Oglethorpe. For instance, she's served as 
Stormy Petrel Editor, Singers President, and 
OAK President (just to hit the biggies). . .you

Greek Week 

Kickball. Cosmic Pong. Fooseball. Flag Foot- 
ball. Trivial Pursuit. The competition is fierce, 
some win and some lose, but a fun time is had by 
all. Field day. Skit, and Sing are three of the most 
popular events, allowing the fraternities and so- 
rorities to showcase their athleticism, witticism, and 
narcissism, in that order. While Sing showcases 
musical talent (and cute, thematic costumes). Skit's 
reputation remains a blatant mockery of all that is 
reverent about Oglethorpe. With references to 
the Smurfs, Alice in Wonderland, Brittany Spears' 
"Hit Me Baby One More Time," and T.V. 
gameshows, this year's Greek Week skits will hold 
a special place in the annals of Greek Week. How- 
ever, a deep absence pervaded the Dining Hall 
this year, in that Springfesters did not attend. 
Prospectives attended one of two "Make the Con- 
nection" weekends that occurred before and after 
Greek Week. Coincidence? We think not. Be- 
cause prospectives were not present, the Greeks 
bared all, and we mean all. Stripping became 
popular this year, and everyone saw their share of 
skin. Delighted by this turn of events, Greeks 
voted to never allow prospectives to attend Greek 
Week again: "If it's down to seeing the Smurfs 
naked or having prospectives, I vote smurfs, ev-

"No guts, No glory." This runs through the minds of

The Cross Country and Track teams put endurance 
to the test. They are both very competitive sports, 
with one's self. The breaking of a P.R., or personal 
record, is a big deal to these athletes. Except in relay 
races, the only constant competitor one has is his or

thing that runners compete against is the clock. On 
the other side of the track are those that participate in 
the field events. These events take a lot of strength

cally conjures images of "win- 
ner." During the SCAC con- 
ference (8-9), Kendra was 
named All-conference, 2nd 
team. By her teammates, she 
was named Best Offensive. In 
addition. Heather Crawford 
was honored as Best Defen- 
sive, and Heather Baber as 
Lady Petrel. These awards 
indicate the vitality of this 
team and point to renewed suc- 
cess for the future. May these 
ladies pick up where they left 
off: with a victory in the 
Homecoming game. 

Let's fly away. The Lady Petrels 
are ready to take off on this play. 
And take off they did!

Jiggy With It! 

PE-TRELS, LET'S GO, L-E-T-S-G-0! The enthusiasm 
echoing through the Schmidt Center is somewhat conta- 
gious. . .but not as contagious as the girls would like for it 
to be. However, Captain Kristen Wentzel and five other 
peppy OU women have worked very hard to raise the 
prestige of the advisorless Cheerleading Squad in the last 
year, and have persevered through a barrage of setbacks. 
Cheerleading star Kara White's torn ACL definitely put a 
damper on their first appearance at Emory, but it didn't 
squelch her spirit, and thankfully, she'll be returning to the 
squad just in time for next season. And the meek strains of 
"Getting Jiggy With It" during the Women's Homecoming 
Game, barely audible to the Cheerleaders, much less the 

crowd, didn't throw these talented girls offbeat. The mu- 
sic returned full force for the Men's game, and these chip- 
per girls sprung into action, and sprung Kristen Wentzel 
into an elevator. Their stunting capabilities, virtually dead 
for the last several years, have exceeded expectations this 
season, thanks to what the girls jokingly call the "OU 
Cheerleading Powerhouse," Allison Osborne and Molly 
Lewis. Oh, the wonders of upper body strength. Hope- 
fully, these women will continue to keep up that Petrel spirit 
next season; although noncompetitive, this fun varsity sport 
is much-appreciated encouragement to the Basketball teams. 
'Thanks for all your support," Senior Basketball player Mike 
Deckert continually tells these ladies.

And then there was light" 


Sumner CuUum fields beautifully in the fading afternoon light. 

A waste of money? No. The brand 
new lights in Hermance stadium are ac- 
tually a reflection of the devotion that 
Oglethorpe has for its baseball team. 
Although the team did not have any 
night games this year, the Baseball Pe- 
trels look forward to showing off their 
new toy to opponents next year. By 
that time, they will be able to function 
under the spotlight. Okay, time for the 
seventh inning copy stretch. Yaawwnn! 
Ok, back to the copy. This year, the 
baseball team faired out with a good 
medium of players, many of whom 
shall return next year. Coached by the 
beloved Bill Popp, the team is batting 
a thousand, with great potential for next 
year. In addition, the Budweiser ferret 
will begin attending all games to sing 
"Take Me Out to the Ballgame." 

"This is what we are going to 
do, no ifs, ands, or buts about 
it," the OU Petrels plot their 
strategy under the direction of 
Team Captain James Morelli.

Not riy Swatters, Fly Killers 

Many think that hitting a puny yellow-green rub- 
ber ball over a 2 foot net takes as much talent as 
hitting a fly with a fly swatter. They are ignorant. 
The Oglethorpe Tennis players put a lot of effort 
and energy into their sport. They enjoy the game 
and excel at it, and are rewarded handsomely. The 
gratuitous encouragement from the coach is a nice 
incentive for busting up the body— and bodily harm 
does happen. Heather Zardus, notorious for her 

incredible dives, could tell you all about it! When 
a puny yellow-green ball and a giant fly-swatter 
powered by pure muscle combine, a deadly 100 
m.p.h. projectile rockets across the court. When 
that projectile hits unsuspecting people, including 
the teammates, the screams can be heard through- 
out the campus, especially when they hit below 
the belt— an unfortunate experience for the brave 
Mike Eis. 

ve: Andrew Shahan, Joris van Daalen, Coach Gery Groslimond, and Andras Unger watch fellow players through the safety of the links. 

Below Left: Mike Eis shows follow-through on a powerful forehand hit. Watch out for fast, low balls, Mike!

It was a tough riiyme for Dave. A regular man of the sea, he had been trying to wave the sails all morning. Worse, he had not been able 

to get through to his broker about those stares of shock in the aquarium company, and yesterday his son had told him a light why 

about growing the mass. To top it all off, Dave's blows started to need whenever he tossed his Lemper. But Dave had no clue that his 

bubbles were a trout. Poor Dave. He had inherited his grandfather William's candy hearse. Every sword he weighed came out 

scrambled. Yep, old Dave Spooner was truly a blip off the old chock.-Benjamin Leggett, Geek Week's Dark and Stormy Petrel entry

he Actress was not enjoying being tied to the concrete slab with less clothing on that could be made from a full size handkerchief. The 
roducer said that it was so they could save money on costumes, but she doubted that this was really the case. To make matters worse It was 
old, wet,rainy,and overall dreary this day on location. While the crew members and the actors portraying the evil cult members probably 
/ere not enjoying the weather either, they were obviously enjoying the effects that it was having on her. Aside from the obvious physical
