and it seems almost as if the 
Oglethorpe bubble shines a little 
brighter. After the hustle and 
bustle of the weekend, students 
welcome the more laid-back 
atmosphere of classes and the 
daily routine. Ummm...yeah. 
But Mondays do serve as a 
wake-up call and reminder for 
those who escaped the 
gravitational pull of the campus 
that once again, the bubble has 
closed. All rules have changed. 
Say goodbye to the world 
outside.

Oglethorpe Museum 

As seen and interpreted through the nearsighted 
eyes of Shanna Hobson. 

It was a warm spring day sometime in. ..spring when Shanna, accompanied by 
her illustious and loyal photographer Katie Coakley made the trek to the library 
to experience the wonder that is... the Oglethorpe Muesem. Shanna and Katie 
found the museum to be a wonderous place full of learning and fun. The mu- 
seum is often forgotten by many students who find that taking the elevator to the 
third floor is just too tedious and time consuming to fit into their busy schedule 
full of naps and frisbee matches. But as this student found, the extra ten seconds 
in the elevator, at the cost of a quick nap between a class, is worth the sleep 
deprivation. Besides, if you go without sleep for long enough you hallucinate 
and that has the potenital to enhance one's experience in the museum. So maybe 
cutting out those naps to visit the museum isn't such a bad idea after all. 

**To experience Shanna's Day at the Musuem in all it's glory, please follow the 
picture and captions starting with the picture directly below this copy and follow 
the pictures counter-clockwise. When you reach the picture directly to the right

Above: As Shanna stepped out of the elevator, 
she was welcomed with the friendly greeting of 
work-study student Heidi Teague. What a great 
start to this adventure. 

Right: In awe of the expansive gallery whose 
walls were adorned with great art, Shanna could 
find no words to express her excitement. So she 
did a cartwheel. I hope the excitement is commu- 
nicated to you. the reader, through this picture. I 
get chills everytime 1 see it.

The Arts at Oglethorpe 

Express Yourself 

Talent is one quality that Oglethorpe students do not lack-- especially artistic talent. 
This is, after all, a liberal ARTS university.. Students are given several opportunities 
throughout the year to share their gifts with others at events such as Open Mike Night, 
Night of the Arts, and International Night. Honors Projects, Singers, Playmakers, Shad- 
owbox, the list goes on for a chance on stage. For the non-performing artists of OU, the 
spring semester offers a wonderful chance for them to showcase their artwork in the 
Great Hall of Hearst. Whether painting, singing, writing, or dancing, one thing that all 
Oglethorpe artists have in common is their passion for art and their abihty to express to 
everyone their deepest emotions in their own unique ways.

Fall Productions 

Talent Takes the Stage 

Oglethorpe students and faculty were treated to a wide range 
of theatrical performances during the 1 999 fall semester. Produc- 
tions such as Planet X allowed the freshman audience to think 
about serious social issues that college students face. Other per- 
formances such as Alpha Psi Omega's "Daddy's Dying: Who's 
Got the Will" presented the audience with the immense talent of 
OU's actors and actresses, while the Playmakers musical "The 
Drunkard" showcased the many acting, singing, dancing, and drink- 
ing talents of OU's drunkest... err... finest students. The Night of 
the One Acts, sponsored by Shadowbox, featured student written 
and directed skits, which proved to be a success. And last, but 
not least. Night of the Arts, sponsored by The Tower, was a hit as 
students thrilled the audience with their talent and creativity. Dur- 
ing the fall, talent took the stage.

spring Productions 

Take a Bow 



The 2000 Spring Semester opened with a bang. The Playmakers production of 
"Marmalade Gumdrops" thrilled and delighted children of all ages, including bus loads of 
perhaps future petrels from surrounding elementary schools. The Children's Show is one 
of the most entertaining productions of the year for the simple fact that the audience partici- 
pation is encouraged and one feels the actors perform specifically for them. In addition to 
the Children's Show, the Playmakers highlighted the enormous talent available in the 
Oglethorpe bubble with "A Madhouse in Goa." This show, starring several talented fresh- 
man as well as veteran Playmakers and even faculty, provided an intense look at one man's 
past, present, and the truth behind each. With superb acting and a challenging script, the 
Playmakers provided lasting entertainment for any student that attended the shows. The 
Shadowbox Players performed "A Zoo Story," an intense two-man show starring Gabriel 
Dean and Brian Huskey on the deck of the Conant Center that received praise from the 
members of the audience. In addition to the productions by Playmakers and Shadowbox, 

Senior Mandy McDow presented her honors thesis in the Talmage

Battle of the Bands 



Battling for the Spotlight 



This year's Battle of the Bands brought more students to 
the cafeteria than Taco Day ever did, and we all know what an 
accomplishment that is. Two outstanding bands competed 
against each other that night- King 's Indian and George and the 
Greaseballs. Both bands had the crowd going crazy with a wide 
variety of cover songs, ranging from the Dave Matthews Band to 
Metallica. The brothers of KA were especially enthused, forming 
a mosh pit in front of the stage while George and the Greaseballs 
performed. The final decision was tough, but King's Indian came 
out on top, giving them the privilege if opening for Jump, Little 
Children during Stomp the Lawn.

University Singers 

Providing Oglethorpe's Melodies 

The University Singers and Chorale, directed by Dr. Ray, is an Oglethorpe 
organization often recognized for their superb blend of voices and their dedication to the 
pursuit of musical pleasure. However, what many residents of the Oglethorpe bubble 
do not realize is the time and effort that these students put into their craft. Meeting three 
to four times a week, as well as additional night rehearsals as needed, the Singers hone 
and perfect their musical talents in order to reach the high level of performance, which 
each student can witness in the Fall and Spring Concerts as well as various other events 
on campus such as Boar's Head, Oglethorpe Day, and Commencement. 

The Singers' Concerts feature music from various countries and in several dif- 
ferent languages including German, Latin, and Russian. While the text may not always 
be readily understood by the audience, the smooth blend of voices and accompaniment 
readily convey the emotion and power intended by the composer. One of the highlights 
of the year was Lainie Wilson's Honors Thesis consiting of a collection of traditional 
Argentinian music performed during the Spring Concert. 

But as they say, all work and no play makes Singers dull people. In a work/play 
spirit of things, the Singers journeyed to Athens, Georgia to

The Boars Head Ceremony 

The Traditional Kiss 



Nothing gets Oglethorpe students into the Christmas spirit Hke kissing a big, 
dead boar's head. The tradition of the Boar's Head Ceremony started back in 
1944, and since then the Omicron Delta Kappa initiation ceremony has become 
the highlight of the fall semester for students, faculty, and alumni. This year at the 
ceremony, the University Singers dazzled their audience with traditional American 
Christmas carols, as well as songs in Spanish and German. They even engaged the 
audience in a sing-along in which everyone stood up and joined the Singers in tradi- 
tional Christmas songs such as "Hark the Herald Angels" and "Deck the Halls". 
With guests from the Centennial High School Orchestra and an eigth grade handbell 
group, the ceremony proved to be an evening of music, smiles, and lots of fun. Of 
course, the best part of the evening is no doubt witnessing the newest members of 
Omicron Delta Kappa puckering up for a big ol' kiss with the pig in front of their 
friends and family.

Senior class. ODK requires academic, social, and community involvement to be admitted 
into their ranks. OHZ inducts the top of the freshman class. But what about the other 
societies on campus? STA, the English fraternity gleans future New York Times Best 
Seller's List authors for it's roster. ^X recruiters the next Sigmund Freuds. But,

International Night 

Culture, Anyone? 

The International Club is made up of international students as well as American stu- 
dents. Members in the International Club participate in a variety of events ranging from 
member presentations on their home countries to going to restaurants to try cuisines from 
around the globe. Some of the more popular activities include Kereoke Night at Barnacle's 
Bar and road trips to places such as Helen, GA., Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and to 
Savannah for St. Patrick's Day. 

The capstone of each year for the International Club is International Night. Interna- 
tional Night is a chance for students to learn about the different cultures of Oglethorpe's 
international students. Some events include traditional dances, folk songs, and costumes. 
This year, students from Young Harris College's international club demonstrated dif- 
ferent french gestures, and were a strong compliment to the demonstrations of Oglethorpe 
students and professors. 

Some of the interesting demonstrations included a Vienna Waltz, Estonian and 

Latin dances, as well as traditional costumes from Ghana, Nigeria, and Vietnam. Dr. Jay 

Lutz performed two Swedish folk songs and Dr. Orme played the piano. There was also 

a quiz for students to test their international knowledge. 

Year after year International night is a great success, not to mention an entertaining way 

of letting other Oglethorpe students learn about 

cultures other than their own. This year was no „ , ^ , , ,v. ^ ,,, u

Commencement 

Time of Your Life 



It seems that many events here in the Oglethorpe bubble center around the weather 
and the subsequent prayer for sunshine-Stomp the Lawn, QuadFest, Graduation. This 
year was no exception With seniors hastily lining up extra tickets and considering the 
possibihty of scalping rain tickets, the morning of May 6 dawned clear and bright. Rising 
early, donning the acetate black robes and the color coordinated hood of each division, 
seniors all over campus sighed for one last time. Perhaps it was a sigh of relief for the 
knowledge that the last final of the undergraduate career was turned in on time. Perhaps it 
was a sigh of sadness for the friends and memories collected in the stone walls and echoing 
classrooms. Or perhaps it was a sigh of expectation, of what the world held after holding 
a diploma from such a prestigious school in your hand. Most likely, it was a mixture of 
each. Relief, nostalgia, hope-the emotions ran high as the long line formed for proces- 
sional. The ceremony was simple, elegant; words by Dr. Large, Dr. Kerr, Sr. Class Presi- 
dent Mandy McDow and others highlighted the event without losing the interest of the 
audience. Diplomas were conferred, closing remarks made, the Alma Mater sung. Really 

a very simple ceremony for the culmination of four years 
of effort. But definitely worth it. Thanks for everything.

Reported to be one of the most suc- 
cessful events ever at Oglethorpe, Eco- 
Talk: Environmental Strategies for the 
21st Century Symposium was the first 
of its type on campus. Collaborated ef- 
forts by Dr. Victoria Weiss, Dr. Charles 
Baube, and the Inter-Club Council 
made Eco-talk a historical event to re- 
member. 

September 16, 1999 was opened by 
three panelists: Peter Bahouth, Lester 
Brown, and Sally Bethea, all prominent 
figures in preserving the ecosystem of 
Georgia. Two sets of four breakout ses- 
sions took place throughout the day. A 
popular session, organized by Ann Hsu, 
was testing the pollution of the stream 
that runs through the bamboo forest out- 
side of Emerson. Local Atlanta radio 
station, 99X, sponsored a environmen- 
tally directed quizbowl. Prizes ranged 
from gift certificates to shirts to fleece 
pullovers. 

The highlight of the day was the en- 
lightening closing speech given by the 
infamous Ted Turner. He told about his 
early days of sleeping in his office to 
save money. He also showed guests the 
finger that best expresses his views on 




people littering on the highway. Turner 
sponsored a question forum where 
people from the community could ad- 
dress him with their concerns and com- 
ments. Ted Turner may have set a record 
for Oglethorpe by bringing in one of the 
largest crowds to fill the Conant Per- 
forming Arts Center. He filled the the- 
ater to the point of standing room only. 

After Turner's humorous and in- 
forming speech, guests filed outside to 
enjoy food and cookies sponsored by 
Aramark. 

Throughout the afternoon, many 
students and faculty members took ad- 
vantage of the opportunity to ride an 
electrical bike that traveled up to 20 
m.p.h. If a bike wasn't suitable, par- 
ticipants were able to get behind the 
wheel of hybrid vehicles. The cars and 
Marta buses are powered by natural gas, 
greatly cutting down on pollution. 

Several professors decided to can- 
cel class to allow students to take part 
in the various break-out sessions. Even 
with class conflicts, enough students 
were able to participate and made Eco- 
Talk a very educational and exciting day 
for Oglethorpe.

Bringing Out Tlie Kid, And Then Some 

ALL HaLLows tve 



Every year, as the leaves are falling and the temperature drops, 
students begin to digress back to a day not so long ago, that of 
childhood. Questions begin to float around concerning attire for 
the end of the month. Oglethorpe students get a chance every 
year at the end of October to express their creative and wild side. 
This Halloween was no different from any on years gone by. 

The weekend began Friday afternoon as the little ones came 
decked out in costumes to haunt the courtyard of Traer. With 
games, a haunted house, and the ultimate Halloween treat-candy- 
-the children from the local schools and homes came to Trick-or- 
Treat in Traer. This annual tradition delights even the children 
that attend Oglethorpe as they, too, dress up and decorate doors. 
With the help of Alpha Phi Omega and Circle K, all of the chil- 
dren had a blast. 

Because Halloween technically fell on a Sunday, Hallow- 
een was officially celebrated on Saturday, October 30. The night 
of parties was kicked off by Sigma Sigma Sigma' s Halloweenie 
Roast. In appearance were babies, twins, fair maidens, Britany 
Spears, hippies, bums, and many more. For those not at the Sigma 
house, Community life sponsored a costume contest and a for- 
tune teller in the bomb shelter. Blair Hoover was singing in the 
shower, literally, when her costume, a shower, won first place. 

The evening ended, or morning began, at the Chi Phi house. 
True to form and history, the boys of Chi Phi spent a lot of time 
and tinfoil decorating the house so that each and every guest 
would feel like this party was even better than last year's. A 
variety of natural gases were provided to lend an amount of eu- 
phoria to the event, including cigarette smoke, foggy stuff, and 
spray paint fumes. Breath deep, baby. This party only comes 
once a year. 



Right: The masses 
flocked to Chi Phi to see 
how their costumes 
stacked up. There was a 
wide variety, including 
some that were a bit 
cheesy.

they stood in the courtyard.

Making it Official 

"Large in Charge" blared the headUne in last year' s Stormy 
Petrel. This year, it happened officially. In what might be con- 
sidered one of the biggest events on Oglethorpe's campus this 
year, President Larry D. Large accepted the symbols of the uni- 
versity and all of the rights and responsibilities that accompany 
it. Drawing various presidents and distinguished administration 
from colleges and universities across the country, the inaugura- 
tion took place on a sunny January 13, 2000. 

As students and guests flocked to the Schmidt Center, the 
sound of bagpipes could be heard in the distance. The proces- 
sion wound into the Schmidt center, the multicolored robes and 
insignia from leamed professors gleaming in the fluorescent light- 
ing. After a brief song from the University Singers, the pro- 
gram began with the central theme consisting of challenges from 
students, alumni, and the president himself that Dr. Large will 
tackle in the future. Representing the student body, OSA Presi- 
dent Cleve Hill challenged Dr. Large to spread the word about 
Oglethorpe beyond the Atlanta and Georgia area as well as in- 
creasing admissions numbers without loosing the stringent quali- 
fications now in place. Alumni representative Alan Royalty 
offered the issue of alumni support and the endowment. Fi- 
nally, Dr. Large issued his challenges to the students and fac- 
ulty of Oglethorpe University, detaihng his priorities of academic 
success in the classroom. The mace of the school was presented 
as well as a very large and heavy medal, a new tradition, from 
student representatives Megan Wallace and Tommy McDowell. 
The ceremony ended with the University's Alma Mater and the 
recessional. Now, without a doubt, Large is in charge.

Destroying the Oglethorpe Environment 




TORM ZOOOI 



There can be nothing worse than waking up to no power, 
heat, or water, except maybe waking up to it for several days in 
a row. Oglethorpe, somewhat unprepared for massive power 
failure, found that an emergency plan in case an airplane lands 
on the quad was not as useful as they probably once thought 
that it would be. In spite of Oglethorpe's partial paralysis in 
reaction measures, many administrators did all they could to 
alleviate the stress and the cold during... Ice Storm 2000! Mike 
Fulford and new Dean of Students Artie Travis demonstrated 
the ingenuity that stems from necessity in crisis situations dur- 
ing this exhibition of Mother Nature's PMS. Many students 
were told to evacuate campus, and for those who could not. a 
heater was put in Emerson so students could sleep somewhere 
warm. Even though many students regard this event as nega- 
tive because of Oglethorpe' s lack of foresight, there were some 
positive results of this event. Many students found, while 
huddled together in the students center and in their rooms, a 
sense of community that seems to be rapidly declining on the 
Oglethorpe campus. Some people had fun. Most importantly 
though, classes were canceled And for further storm informa- 
tion, stayed tuned to WJTL-your voice of Ice Storm 2000!

Oglethorpe T)ay 

Tales From the Crypt 

Oglethorpe Day is the annual event at which the campus celebrates 
the founding of the university, its rich history and its interesting traditions. On 
Oglethorpe Day 1990 the community filled and sealed a time capsule called 
Ciypt Capsule 2000 to heighten awareness of Oglethorpe's famous Crypt of 
Civilization. Oglethorpe Day, February 9, 2000 saw the opening of this cap- 
sule and the refilling and sealing of the capsule, now designated Crypt Capsule 
2010 in the Conant Performing Arts Center. The theme for the celebration was 
"Into the Millennium: Tales of the Crypt." 

Assisted by students Gabriel Dean as former president Thornwell 
Jacobs and D.J. Ledet as Jacobs" archivist T.J. Peters, Community Life staff 
members Missy Bamette, Marshall Nason and Ann Pitini emptied Crypt Cap- 
sule 2000. Among the items removed were pieces of the Berlin Wall, a video- 
tape of recorded predictions about Oglethorpe University in the year 2000, 
several t-shirts and other Oglethorpe memorabilia. Paul Hudson, university 
registrar and semiofficial historian, spoke about Oglethorpe's stewardship of 
the Crypt of Civilization. Former Vice President for Student Affairs Donald 
Moore read an appreciation of Oglethorpe senior faculty member Dr. Malcolm 
Amerson. All members of the audience received metallic invitations to the 
opening of Crypt Capsule 2010 similar to those Dr. Jacobs" had made for the 
Crypt of Civilization. The first 250 students received commemorative t-shirts 
as well. 

Following the program faculty, staff and students adjourned to the 
Emerson Student Center following the program for lunch. The conference rooms 
and the dining hall were decorated in period themes. Crowds clustered around 
videos in two rooms. The first was the video of the messages to the year 2000 by 
students, faculty and staff of 1990. This video featured an extended prediction 
by former president Donald S. Stanton. The second video was a copy of an 
amusing promotional film called "The Stream of Knowledg" in which Jacobs 
and Peters along with Oglethorpe students of the early 1940s describe and 
depict the concept and construction of the Crypt of Civilization.

Feelin' the Funk 



As with everything in the Oglethorpe bubble. Homecom- 
ing is a little, shall we say, funky here. Instead of being held in the 
Fall, as with other schools, our lack of football team constitutes a 
little bit of reorganizing and Homecoming is instead held in the 
Spring, coinciding with the basketball team. Does this make Home- 
coming weekend any less fun? Certainly not! If anything, the 
events are a little more special, a little more memorable. For ex- 
ample, the bonfire of past years was instead turned into a bar-b-que 
held at the baseball field where students ate, socialized, and dis- 
cussed the prospects for the game. And what a game it was! Fans 
crowded the stands, some dressed in extremely strange garb, and 
cheered on the Petrels. Halftime witnessed the presentation of the 
2000 Homecoming Court. And then there was the dance. Home- 
coming 2000 invited guests to "Feel the Funk" with a 70s style 
funk band at the ever impressive Georgian Terrace hotel, which 
hosted the "Gone with the Wind" cast party. With an amazing 
spread of food, a terrific band, and Oglethoipians dressed in their 
best, the evening was a huge success. The credit is due largely to 
Jr. Class President Lance Ozier, who spent most of the summer 
planning and arranging the different elements of the weekend. 
However, changes are in place for next year's Homecoming. As 
the event moves to Programming Board, the duty rests less on the 
Jr. Class President's shoulders. This year enlisted the help of a 
committee of Programming Board students without whose help the 
night would not have been as wonderful. What will they think up 
for next year?

Giving Students Something to Do 

Programming Board sponsors many different events throughout the 
school year. For example, the Virgin Bourbon Party, which is not a 
bourbon tasting for those worthy of ritual sacrifice. Another point of 
irony can be found in the location of the soiree, held in Traer Hall. For 
those of you living outside of the bubble, Traer is also refered to as the 
Virgin Vault. Point made. Casino Night is held each year in order to 
teach Oglethorpe students exactly how to lose all the hard earned money 
you make once you graduate. Anyway, Programming Board puts tons 
of effort, time, and ingenuity into its programming choices. Other events 
included a Murder Mystery Theater in the Grenwald Room, complete 
with big wigs (literally, see left) and a shady cop. The outdoor movies 
are always a hit, as well as the hypnotist that taught several students the 
power of inhibition. Though Programming Board members often stay 
behind the scenes, arriving early and staying late, their love and dedica- 
tion shines through in aU they do. Thanks guys !

President for Student Affairs, went to The OSA Pro- 
gramming Board. Kevin Woolf, a senior from 
Alpharetta, Georgia was presented with the Pattillo

Indians, Desperadoes, and Jumping Children 

Stomp the Lawn. You know it, you love it. but his year was a particu- 
larly good year to look forward to the capstone event of second semester... No 
Rain. For the past two years Stomp the Lawn was a bit soggy and had to be 
renamed to Stop Schmidt, but such is the weather the Spring Gods choose to 
give us. Apparently Programming Board spent a little extra money and sacri- 
ficed a few more lambs to get nice weather while at the same time praying to the 
Rock and Roll Gods for a decent band to come to a small school. Whatever 
Programming Board did. they did it right this year. The weather made Stomp 
the Lawn all the more special. With a great band, great weather, gypsises, and 
all the cotton candy a child... Oglethrope student could want, who would want 
to miss it? Appametly not too many people since many people who do not 
attend Oglethorpe classes, but instead attend Jump, Little Children concerts 
took the place of anti-social students. Programming Board's excellent choice 
of bands this year drew a crowd from all over the city not just from the Upper 
Quad. True, the crowd was not large, but then again no crowd at any Oglethorpe 
event is. 

The winner of Battle of the Bands, King's Indian, opened the show 
with their mellow mix of cover songs, whetting the appetites of students for the 
musical medley to come. Global Desperadoes, an Atlanta based rap-cover 
group, started the party quickly, inspiring a pseudo-mosh pit in front of the 
stage. Finally, as the crowning event of the afternoon, the South Carolina 
based band Jump Little Children took the stage. With their eclectic grouping 
of instruments ranging from electric guitar to string base to accordion and 
harmonica, the group chanted, wailed and filled the evening with glorious 
sound. And just in case the music wasn't enough, clubs and organizations set 
up booths around the quad providing such services as hair braiding, tarot 
readings, video buttons and a pie throwing auction.

Where are They? 



Ambassadors this year were very low key. There were no flashy 
shirts, and no advertized meetings that this yearbook staff person 
can recall. So what happened to ambassadors and why are we 
devoting a spread in the yearbook to an organization not very known 
on campus when we could have done a spread on you you ask? 
Well, Ambassadors did exist this year they just kept to themselves. 
However,next year this yearbook staff person has heard rumors of 
Ambassadors taking off and being a prominate organization on 
campus once again. This is why we devoted a spread to Ambassa- 
dors, to let you know that they didn't drop off the face of the planet, 
that they will be here next year so everyone can join, and, most 
importantly, this spread will go through a mock tour with Jesse 
DeMaria and Betony somebody so all can get a feel for exactly 
what it is Ambassadors do and find out for themselves if they would 
want to participate in this important organization. 

P.S.-you get to learn many useless yet interesting things about the 
campus. Oh what fun!

Flying "Above and Beyond Oglethorpe Universisty" 

The Stormy Petrel 



The Stonny Petrel began the 1999-2000 school year with a new office, a new 
look, and a new attitude. The year saw many dramatic changes to the Oglethorpe student 
newspaper, continuing improvements made by previous editors Catherine Borck and 
Nicole Garbarini, while adding some new ones. 

Bryan Garmon established a computer network for the Petrel computers, giving 
the paper a fully equipped office that allowed staffers to work in a professional environ- 
ment. 

Christopher oversaw a complete design overhaul of the Petrel, increasing the size of the 
paper from tabloid to broadsheet and establishing a more professional, consistent style. 
He also worked extensively with the staff to standardize the use of American Press Asso- 
ciation style of articles. 

Editor-in-Chief Sara Haviland continued the trend of Yankee editorship begun in 
1998 with Nicole. Sara worked on improving the journalistic integrity of the paper as a 
whole, attempting to divorce the paper from small school politics. She saw the Petrel 
through several controversies, allowing the staff to continue to push the envelope with 
edgy stories that reflected much of the mood on campus... even when everyone on cam- 
pus wasn't ready to read it. Under the direction of Sara and Christopher, the Petrel he- 
came both a forum for students and faculty and centerpiece of many discussions. 

News editors Courtney Cronly and Tina Stults made steady improvements in news 
coverage. The Petrelhegan to use U-Wire, a college wire service, to provide the Oglethorpe 
community with news and features from other schools across the states. 

The Petrel also added a new satire page under the direction of Dan Heacox, "Hind- 
sight." It not only included Dan's weekly column, but also featured a new cartoon series 
by Jeff Poole, as well as a satirical Ogle-Stat, created by Joe Vance and written by Chris- 
topher. 

Sara brought many in-depth Special Features to the paper this year, covering top- 
ics ranging from Eco-Talk to the inauguration of Dr. Larry Large. Stormy Petrel Advi- 
sor, Anne Rosenthal, contributed a great deal of guidance in terms of planning 
the future of the paper and working through sticky situations. The Stormy Petrel has 
reached a level of professionalism and integrity that will hopefully be maintained and 
improved upon for years to come.

Change Is Good 

The changes in Oglethorpe Christian Fellowship were abun- 
dant this year. The most notable change was the structure of the 
Christian organization. The name OCF became an umbrella for 
Salt and Light, Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and College Catho- 
lics. Salt and Light became Bible Study oriented, while OCF took 
over Tuesday Night Praise and Worship. 

Along with the new names came lots of new faces. The 
Freshman class came in with many strong and devoted leaders, prom- 
ising to keep the organization alive and enthusiastic. Hiring Chip 
Welch to serve as campus minister was an even greater blessing 
funded by an outside church. Chip adds direction, leadership, corny 
jokes, and wonderful insight into the Word of God. 

OCF went on two retreats during the year. It seemed that 
wherever OCF went, rain followed. In October, members relaxed 
at the mountain getaway of Coker Creek with spelunking, swim- 
ming, horseback riding, worshipping, and any other activity an in- 
terested Christian could hope for. Although the weather dampened 
the air, spirits were high. The second retreat, in April, took place at 
St. Simons Island. The beach was a bit windier than expected, the 
climate a little wet, but everyone had a great time hanging out and 
praising God. 

OCF bids farewell to some significant seniors but welcomes 
next year's crop of willing freshman with open arms.

Circle K International 

"Without a Sense of Caring, There Can 

Be No Community" -Anthony J. D'Angelo 

Circle K... Service, Leadership, and Fellowship! These are the Circle K 
goals, and exactly what the club accomplished this year. Through service 
projects, social activities, and district events, Circle K managed to have fun 
and make a difference. They started the year off with a bang, or maybe, a putt. 
At the IDD Fundraising Putt-Putt Golf Tournament, members helped fight 
Iodine Deficiency Disorder with every stroke. Having perfected their golfing 
skills, the group moved on to a more challenging area— the kitchen. Circle K 
members should be right at home cooking in their dorm rooms after this year's 
experiences at Project Open Hand, where they prepared meals for AIDS patients 
and the Ronald McDonald House, where they cooked and served Thanksgiv- 
ing dinner. Also, if life ever gets tough for these liberal arts grads, members will 
be right at home as Waffle House Grill cooks! After cooking and serving 
pancakes and ham for about 50 hungry members of the Brookhaven Boys and 
Girls Club, Circle K recieved the Waffle House Stamp of Approval. Growing 
tired of the cookign routine, they decided to use the kitchen for some some- 
thing even more fun—making Play Dough! OU Circle K International was 
proud to host one of the events for the district road trip where CKI members 
from all over the state made interesting types and colors of Play Dough along 
with paper flowers. Imagine the strange looks the group recieved when they 
delived the bright, bubblegum colored Play Dough to a local children's 
hospitial! Wanting to make up for the Play Dough mess left behind in Confer- 
ence Room C— flour everywhere and dough bits in the carpet— Circle K moved 
on to cleaning up the OU campus. Members organized and participated in 
several campus clean-ups throughout the year. But, these were no ordinary 
clean-ups! They were scavenger hunt clean-ups, and members collected spe- 
cial trash items to win prizes. After a tiring but incredible year of service and 
fun, members spent a rejuvinating and inspriring weekend at District Conven- 
tion. A record seven members attended this year' s convention in Atlanta. After 
a fun-filled weekend attendeing workshops and theme dances and making new 
CKI friends from all over the state, OUCKIers were ready to start all over again 
and excited to start another year in CKI style.

Alpha Phi Omega 

Only a life lived for others is a life worth living. 
"Einstein 

Alpha Phi Omega is a national co-ed service fraternity which 
strives to serve the nation, community, and the fraternity itself. This 
year, the brothers took part in numerous service projects such as 
sorting food at the Atlanta Community Food Bank, or making door 
signs for Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Other projects included 
Project Open Hand, working with Harper Archer High School 
through Hands on Atlanta Day, and volunteering at Good News 
as well as the Atlanta Furniture Bank. 

AOQ also stays active on campus. Each year brothers hand 
out forms at the beginning of each semester, serve as ushers at the 
Boar's Head Festival, and organize Trick-or-Treat in Traer. A^Q 
also organizes a service retreat every semester to perform service 
outside of Atlanta, usually in a state park. For these retreats, AO^ 
has travelled as far north as Helen, GA and as far south as Warm 
Springs, GA. 

Although AOQ devotes much of its time to philanthropic pur- 
suits, the brothers also know how to foster and strengthen the bonds 
that form between members. Fun activities such as ice-skating, 
broomball, and picnicking in Piedmont Park allows the brothers to 
connect outside of their service projects and also to have time to 
relax and take a break. 

Overall, the brothers remain busy with many worthwhile, fun, 
and interesting service projects as well as fellowship activities. This 
year has proven to be another great year for AOQ as they have 
sacrificed their time and energy to organizations in and around 
Atlanta that are dedicated to improving the city we live in.

Alpha Sigma Tau 

New Greek Qrls Hit Campus 

After extensive searching and interviewing, fall semester of 
1999 witnessed the colonization of a new sorority on campus, Al- 
pha Sigma Tau. With the anchor as their symbol, these girls are 
attaching themselves firmly to Oglethorpe's community with the 
willing support of Chi Omega and Sigma Sigma Sigma. Holding a 
separate recruitment week, the membership of AZT rose to over twenty 
girls, an amazing accomplishment in so httle time. Recruitment ef- 
forts spanned the ensuing months, gaining girls and completing re- 
quirements for gaining chapter status on campus. A trip to the na- 
tional office in Arkansas sealed friendships and made many memo- 
ries. A deficiency in numbers prevented AZT from participating in 
all events for Greek Week, but a rousing rendition of "American 
Pie" (words by AST) brought the house to its feet in Greek Week 
Sing. Unfortunately, due to a ruling by their national, the women of 
Alpha Sigma Tau were unable to reach chapter status in the Spring 
Semester, but prospects for the fall look promising.

Spirit, Vigor, and Vim 



Chi Omega 



"Oh we've got spirit, and vigor, and vim, and what's more 
we've got ambition to win. That's why the Chi O's are always on 
top, 'cause everybody knows we're the cream of the crop." As a 
rule, recruitment songs must be peppy and bouncy and guaranteed 
to get stuck in your head. However, this particular recruitment 
song could not be more on the mark. The Delta Theta chapter of 
the Chi Omega fraternity demonstrates spirit, vigor, and vim not 
only in chapter activities, but in aspects all over campus. Spirit is 
not only evident in the members of the cheerleaders and dance team, 
but in the players themselves. Chi Omega letters are everywhere 
on the stands as fans cheer the team onto victory. Vigor, active 
bodily or metal strength or force, is represented by the high aca- 
demics in the Chi Omega chapter on campus. With a chapter GPA 
above not only the all-greek average, but the all-women's average 
as well, Chi Omega demonstrates their mental strength on a regular 
basis. Oh, and check out the rosters for such honorary societies as 
AX, OAK, ¥X, Order of Omega, or OHZ. Chi Omegas every- 
where. Vim, for those non-English majors out there, is defined as 
robust energy and enthusiasm. What could more evident? Whether 
is be on the way to class, making sandwiches for the homeless or 
during Greek Week Sing, the smiling faces and non-stop energy 
from Chi Omegas permeate the campus.

Pearls, Girls, and Memories 

Since the year 1987, Oglethorpe University has heard the 
chant "Sigma Sigma Sigma." This is because in its past 13 years 
Sigma has grown not only in numbers but also in prominence in 
the Greek community. ZZS had a very successful rush this year. 
Despite the addition of a new sorority, Tri-Sigma added new 
members and kept their numbers up. 

This year ZZZ has carried on with their annual Halloweenie 
Roast and Christmas parties. Not only does Tri-Sigma recog- 
nize the need to relax and enjoy themselves, bAut they also rec- 
ognize the necessity to help others. Through both time and 
monetary commitments, Tri-Sig traditionally aides the Robbie 
Page Memorial Hospital in North Carolina. For these and many 
other reasons, SZZ is a voice to be heard on Oglethorpe 
University's campus, whether it be during intramurals or late at 
night on Bid Day.

Fraternity Voted Most Likely to Witness

Chi Phi, the fraternity known to most people on campus for 
their fun and unique blend of music and outlandish parties, has 
established themselves over the years as one of the more fun places 
to be. Pimp & Ho (known this year thanks to administration as 
Pimp and Shark) and Halloween Party are some of the events people 
look forward to year after year. 

Although the brothers were not to be found at some of the 
Greek Week events this year, the brothers can be found participat- 
ing in a number of philanthropic enterprises. The brothers this 
year volunteered their time getting things set up for Avon's Three 
Day Breast Cancer Walk, played basketball with the homeless at a 
local shelter, and even cleaned things up around campus during 
Eco-Talk. 

Despite being one of the smaller fraternities, Chi Phi has re- 
mained one of the most diverse groups on campus. The variety of 
personality has made Chi Phi a dynamic and interesting fraternity. 

Since its founding in 1824, making Chi Phi the oldest social 
fraternity, the brothers of Chi Phi have been devoted to pursuing 
truth, friendship, and personal integrity. The Rho Delta chapter 
has not failed in upholding these fundamental principles that are 
the foundation of their fraternity.

See-Sawing Through the Year 

The Delta Sigma Phi fraternity was founded by men of both the Jewish 
and Christian faith. AEO has long prided itself on its diversity, and the chap- 
ter here at Oglethorpe certainly reflects that. The Alpha Nu chapter of the 
Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity is a group of individuals with great personality and 
unique character. 

Originally founded in 1922, the chapter has been active at Oglethorpe for 
fifteen years. This past year, as Ai;<I> celebrated the one hundredth year since 
its founding, the Alpha Nu chapter showed its pride, and made its presence felt 
all over Oglethorpe's campus. 

They year started with AX<t> completing an ambitious philanthropy project. 
The brothers of AZ<1) conducted a 72-hour marathon see-saw session to raise 
money for the American Cancer Society. This See-Saw for Cancer was a great 
success, gaining coverage on the Atlanta radio and raising $2,615 for a very 
worthy cause. 

After this excellent start to the year, the brothers of Delta Sig stayed busy. 
Delta Sig remained active in intramural athletics, fielding teams in every sport. 
Brothers from the chapter were quite visible as active participants in the 
Oglethorpe Student Association, and other campus organizations, including 
the Urban Leadership Program, and University Singers. Parties at ASO were 
very enjoyable. The most notable parties were their annual Get Lei'd and 
Safe Sex in the Snow. Finally, Delta Sig came together for Greek Week. The 
brothers of A20 competed ardently, capturing a win for best skit, and had an 
excellent time. Their spirit and pride were evident throughout the week. 

The same spirit and pride are defining characteristics of the Alpha Nu 
chapter of Delta Sigma Phi. From the See-Saw for Cancer, to the six-foot tall 
chariot the brothers constructed for Greek Week, to wearing their letters in 
class, the brothers of ZiZO are clearly proud of their chapter and their frater- 
nity, and for good reason. This diverse group has enjoyed a rich history, and 
looks forward to an excellent future.

Southern Gents Provide Southern Comfort 



The Beta Nu chapter of the Kappa Alpha Order has grown, 
reaching its largest membership numbers in recent years thanks the 
addition of eleven new brothers. 

From Rush Week in September through Greek Week in March, 
KA has tried to maintain its tradition of being "Southern Gentle- 
men" despite wild parties such as White Trash Weekend. 

KA brothers make their presence known on campus by par- 
ticipating in a wide variety of organizations. Their presence is 
particularly felt in Oglethorpe's sport teams. One can find KA 
brothers on the basketball and tennis courts, the baseball and soc- 
cer fields, as well as on the track. Not to limit themselves to just 
one area, KA brothers participate in other student groups includ- 
ing FCA, the student government, and community life organiza- 
tions just to name a few. 

KA looks forward to an excellent future marked by growing 
numbers and maintaining their pride as southern gentlemen. As

Numerous community service projects, such as the nurs- 
ing home outreach, gave ZAE a sense of fulfillment in the 
larger area, and first-time and traditional campus activities alike 
benefited Greeks and independents. For instance, Menelaos 
Demestihas initiated both a Make the Connection Greek in- 
formational session and a Greek-Row recycling program. 
Several SAE members hold positions in the student govern- 
ment. This year SAE reasserted its traditional dominance over 
many of the Greek Week activities. 

All the while, membership numbers and growth continue 
to lead the fraternity system, along with achievement of aca- 
demic averages at the top of the fraternities and well above the 
all-student average.

Doing It Independently 



^efia ^st

Independents. You know them. You see them everyday. You 
love them. You want them in your lives. You want them in your 
classes. You want them running the school. You want them spending 
your money. You want them to perform for you. You want them 
singing for you. You want them winning awards. You want them 
praying for you. You want them winning games for you. And 
they do. Oh yes. they do. They are all around you. You might not 
recognize them without the flashy greek letters plastered on their 
chests. But you might find them plastered at a party. Independents 
are everywhere: in your classes, in your organization, in your dorm. 
Maybe even in your room. Somehow they manage to stay involved, 
even though they chose to abstain from the greek way of life. How- 
ever, this is does not stop them from participating in the weekend 
soirees of the fraternities, and being welcomed with open arms. 
For instance, Cleve "Gonna Run the Country Someday" Hill runs 
the school without the element of Greek letters to add to his re- 
sume. Jodie Sexton manages to be involved in many aspects of 
Oglethorpe's bubble without participating in a Bid Day. Chad 
Mozley is hot. Nuff said. Dan Heacox provides weekly laughter 
with his "Hindsighf article, telling Oglethorpe how it should be 
done without the benefit of fraternity brothers to back him up. And 
Shanna Hobson. She manages to not only produce 3/4 of this year- 
book, but she makes cool animal noises while doing it. There you 
have it. They're involved. They're cool. They're Damn Indepen- 
dent. 

*Independents are trustworthy, loyal, have all their shots, and 
can be adopted to owners willing to love and care for them, with 
minimal effort involved. Buy them nice things, and they will purr 
for you on command.

Greek Week 



Backstreet Boys Meet Dirty Dancing 

They sing, they dance, they cross dress. ..Nope, it's not Drag 
Party. Instead, the Greek community provides itself one more op- 
portunity to shed their inhibitions in the guise of a good cause- win- 
ning Greek Week. It may not seem Uke a momentous victory (the 
only proof is a plaque in the Community Life office), but the effects 
of a Greek win provide bragging rights for the entire next year. 

And what could you hope to see during Greek Week? Well, 
you could start off with a choreographed concert, some video games, 
move to basketball, maybe take in a few field day events, and finish 
up with some totally uninhibited dramatics. But that' s not the half of 
it. These events can't even describe the hours of work and 
commraderie that factor into the week. 

With Sing and Skit being two of the most popular events, the 
greek organizations pull out all the stops to make these performances 
memorable and entertaining. Where else could Missy be serenaded 
by strains of "The Thong Song", or you witness a reunion of the 
Jackson Five, fros and all? Or how about catching a peek of Wes 
Wade in panty hose and the return of Rob Shutsky? Just one week 
in April accomplished all of this. 

Of course, not everything was perfect. The adverse weather con- 
ditions forced a rescheduling of Field Day, which damped a few 
spirits. The every popular and creative Chi Phi was noticably absent 
from several events, much to the dismay of the audience. With the 
removal of Amy Lance from campus, skit material was a little thin. 
However, despite the differences, Greek Week processed as usual, 
crowing victors and promising an even better time next year.

Women's Soccer 



The 1 999 season was a year of firsts for the Oglethorpe 
women's soccer team. First time wins over Rhodes College, the 
largest recruiting class on record, as well as a first-ever sweep of 
a conference weekend guided the team toward an 11-7 record- 
second-best in Oglethorpe history. The highlight of the season 
came midway through when the team was out as well for the 
Petrels. Freshmen were a key to the Lady Petrels'success, with 
a number of them starting and playing like veterans. Despite 
playing extremely limited time because of injury, Christine 
Scarborough broke the school career scoring record with 44 goals 
and total points. Scarborough and goalkeeper Amy Meyers were 
both named third team All-South and All- SCAC. The Stormy 
Petrels lost five seniors to graduation this year, but are leaving the 
team in very capable hands.

Men's Soccer 



Two words describe this year's men's soccer team: 
youthful and unlucky. The team was youthful in that it gradu- 
ated only three seniors; it was unlucky in that it suffered sev- 
eral key injuries over the course of the season. The team 
looked to three different players over the entire season as 
injuries took down goalies Tim Watt, Mene Demestihas, and 
Chris Fort. However, under the leadership of seniors Jason 
Amos, Nate Harrison, and Jamie Fisher, the men overcame 
these obstacles and finished the season on a high note dou- 
bling their conference victories from last season. Next sea- 
son looks very bright for the Petrels as they well be loaded 
with many experienced juniors and seniors.

Volleyball 



Even though 1999 is the end of the century, it was only the 
beginning of a new Stormy Petrel volleyball team. Many changes were 
made over the year: a new team, coach and attitude about the sport. 
Pam McNaull, first year of coaching, had only eight girls on the squad. 
Senior, Erin Sanderson andjunior, Shawna Fields were voted the team's 
co-captains. These two girls lead the team to a successful season and 
one with many memories that will forever be cherished. 

Fields was selected to the All -Tournament team at the Ten- 
nessee Temple Tournament. Oglethorpe won the "Spike It Tourna- 
ment", where senior. Sunny Hilli;u'd was named to the All-Tournament 
Team and junior, Alanna Gluhm was voted MVP of the tournament. 
These four upper classmen were assisted by sophomore Alex Williams, 
and freshmen Robyn Hudec, Rebecca Holt, and Jessica Wilkins to fin- 
ish with a season record of 21-19. Gluhm was a SCAC player of the 
week and Fields was voted to second team all conference. McNaull 
explained, "I am looking for a strong recruiting class for next season 
and more positive things tO come!"

Men's Basketball 



In his second year as head men's basketball 
coach. Jim Owen comes into a season filled with an 
abundance of youthful potential and few veterans to 
lead them along. After winning the first game of the 
season, the Petrels lost some games but showed much 
signs of life. They were never blown out by any oppo- 
nent and by the end of the year the tide turned for the 
Petrels. They won four out of their last eight, includ- 
ing an 85-64 romp over the second place DePauw Ti- 
gers. This is due in a large part to the trio of senior co- 
captains, whose "never say die" attitude persevered 
throughout the season. The Petrels finished 6-19, and 
have a very positive outlook for next season.

T. 



he 1999-2000 Oglethorpe Women's Basketball season started 
off with high expectations. The team did not graduate any members last 
year , returning the same key players and adding five skilled freshman 
making this team one of the deepest, most talented teams Oglethorpe 
has ever seen. Coach Angle Milford began her second season with the 
Lady Petrels with new help from assistant Samantha Lowery and man- 
aging assistance from Senior Beth Barnes. Although the women did not 
finish as well as they had hoped, they nontheless had a productive year. 
They will have to say goodbye to two veteran starters, Seniors Cheryl 
Ayers and Heather Crawford who were assets to the Lady Petrel squad. 
The team willhave big shoes to fill with the adsence of Ayer's ball han- 
dling and Crawford's defensive play. The team will continue to prepare 
for the 2000-0 1 season led by Senior leaders Amy Myers, Heather Baber, 
Liz Campbell, and Leah Patrick. These members, along with a return- 
ing group of talented juniors and experienced sophomores will be back 
again battling for a top spot in conference. Coach Milford's ever-present 
words are that '"sucess...is always a journey!"

Baseball 



The baseball team took the field this year with high expecta- 
tions. Since there were no seniors on the team this year, the Petrels 
relied heavily on contributions from several underclassmen. Led by 
team captains Steven Breitback, Dan Toirenti, and Brock Zauderer, 
the Petrels hoped to avenge last year's 4 and 14 conference record 
earning a trip to the conference tournament. They accomplished this 
goal by leaning on junior pitcher Brian Kenna who had a 4 and 
conference record and tlirew an impressive 1 1 consecutive complete 
games. A trio of sophomores, Steven Bloodworth, Andy Crosby, 
and Dan Torrenti, as well as freshman Ryan Meehan led the Petrels 
offense. Meehan, the team's third baseman, posted a .380 batting 
average and set a new freshman record with 53 hits. Catcher Dan 
Torrenti led the team with 6 home runs and 32 runs batted in. Sec- 
ond baseman and pitcher Andy Crosby contributed a team high .460 
on base percentage, while centerfielder Steven Bloodworth added 5 
home runs and a .300 batting average. The team is excited to see 
what this group will be able to do next year bringing back a complete 
squad of experienced members. The Stormy Petrels finished the 
season with an overall record of 18-22, to 10-6 in the SCAC.

one under par closing round of 70, the Stormy Petrels erased a 
three-stroke deficit after day one. The win was Oglethorpe's 
second SCAC golf championship in three years. Fink's 70 
eclipsed the field by a six-stroke margin on the final day. Fink, 
a sophomore from Snellville. GA an Brookwood High School, 
played the Par 5s in a tournament best two under.

Track & Field 



The 2000 season proved a difficult one for the men's 
and women' s track teams, as they faced their toughest com- 
petition in years while fielding a team a fraction of the size of 
previous ones. Undaunted by the barriers that faced them, 
the teams proved themselves to be more than capable com- 
petitors they continued to be a force to be reckoned with at 
their meets. At the conference meet in Memphis, Tennes- 
see, the members of the team placed in nearly every event in 
which thay participated, easily bestingcompetitors from larger 
teams. In the end, the Petrels showed they were far better 
than their numbers would indicate and that in the future thay 
will continue to rise to t he top an jipreasingly competitive 
conference. _

The men's and women's tennis teams had a season 
filled with ups and downs. Both began the year excited 
and prepared for competition. Throughout the season, the 
group faced teams from as far away as Michigan and Ohio 
and as close as Georgia Perimeter College, learning and 
improving with each match. However, both teams faced 
some setbacks. The women suffered the loss of their num- 
ber one player. Heather Zardus, due to injury and everyone 
had to step up their play. The men were forced to put to- 
gether an almost entirely new team just weeks before con- 
ference. Yet, the teams prevailed, giving their all at the 
conference tournament in Memphis. The season ended with 
high hopes, as the teams return the majoritj? of their players 
next year.

half-time performance. Once again the girls 
help to pump up the crowd. 



O. U. Cheerleaders 



Maybe you've noticed them. They got new uniforms. They 
squawked along beside a Petey no longer doomed to reamin a disembodied 
head. They yelled back "Petrel" to some funny yellow guys' "Stormy". 
"That's right. . .c'mon. . .they're back! Yeah! The best you've 
ever. . .seen," as one of their cheers proclaims. It's the OU Cheerleaders, back 
for another spirited season of supporting the OU Basketball teams with 
banners, cheers, and most importantly (as any player will tell you), goody 
bags or locker signs for the players at every home game. Sporting antique gold 
that proudly proclaims PETRELS, these spunky ladies not only performed a 
variety of show-stopping routines and stunts, but also provided other ser- 
vices to the OU athletic community as well. For instance, they sold raffle 
tickets at the inaugural OU night-time baseball game, raffling off baseballs 
signed by Atlanta Braves players. They also sold concessions at the Volley- 
ball tournament held at OU last October. You might have noticed them 
huddled together at any number of other sporting events. Yes, the OU Cheer- 
leaders. . .they chant, they dance, they perfonn gravity-defying poses, they 
spring, they leap, and perhaps most importantly, when the opposing teams' 
coaches say, "Psssst. . .," they tell them how to pronounce our mascot.

O. U. Dancers 



This season the O. U. Dancers wowed basbetball fans 
with their variety of styles. From hip-hop moves to switch- 
second leaps and double pirouette turns, the dancers inno- 
vative and spirited performances never failed to impress spec- 
tators. Endless hours of practice coupled with technical 
skill have helped the girls attract their own supporters. "The 
O. U. Dancers are one of the best things coming out of 
Oglethorpe," commented sophomore Mene Demestihas af- 
ter watching the team's Homecoming routine. The team, 
directed by Brooke Roberts and Lauren Montagno, look 
foward to continued improvement and future prospects for 
national competition.
