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

The Arts at Oglethorpe
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.

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.

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,

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

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.

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

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.

-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.

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.
Good lawd! That's a lot

Destroying the Oglethorpe Environment
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-

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
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 !

and other presenters were dressed in academic regalia
to honor the many academic and extracurricular ac-

Alpha Sigma, the Athletic Honor Society. President
Larry D. Large began the program with an address
titled " Self-conscious Leadership." The "Deans'
Award for Outstanding Achievement by a Student Or-
ganization," chosen jointly by the Provost and the Vice
President for Student Affairs, went to The OSA Pro-
gramming Board. Kevin Woolf, a senior from
Alpharetta, Georgia was presented with the Pattillo
Leadership Prize. Dr. Artie Travis closed the convo-
cation with a rousing speech on "The ABCs of
Oglethorpe." The Univsersity Singers closed the pro-
gram with the Alma Mater. A picnic to celebrate the
occasion was held on the veranda of the Conant Cen-
ter immediately after the ceremony.

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
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.

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-
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

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

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.
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
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
"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
Random Appliance Violence
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
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
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
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-

The Tradition Continues
Oglethorpe's Georgia Eta chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsi-
lon experienced another year of positive growth during the
year. Both in numbers and in campus involvement, ZAE con-
tinues to provide and example of leadership for both the Greek
community and Oglethorpe as a whole.
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.

Doing It Independently
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

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.

The 1 999 season was a year of firsts for the Oglethorpe

second-best in Oglethorpe history. The highlight of the season
came midway through when the team was out as well for the

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.

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!"

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.

Led by 2000 SC AC Golfer-of-the-Year Robert Fink's
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

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

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
