If you are reading this, then 1.) the yearbook has been completed, pubhshed, and dis- 
tributed or 2.) someone has managed to steal this letter unbeknownst to me. In the case of 
the former rather than the latter, the publication of this book represents all of my hopes and 
dreams coming to fruition. Wait. It would be incredibly selfish of me to take all of the credit 
for this. First of all, I would like to take the time to show my unbounded appreciation for my 
staff for, without their creative energy and countless work hours, this book would continue 
to be the punchline to a joke that was never really that funny. Victoria Payne, Bissell McWil- 
iiams, Lorna Burrows, and Amir Ghalehgol deserve as much gratitude as I for their dedica- 
tion to this great endeavor. I, of course, cannot forget to thank our advisor, Natalie Dietz, who 
served as Yamacraw errand girl, and Dean Doyle for being committed to making this a real 

This is not just a book with pictures in it. This is a reflection of who we are and the 
place we have chosen to be the destination for intellectual, social, and spiritual (yes spiritual) 
growth. Without this serving as a record of where we were and a guide to where we are go- 
ing, we are bound to make unnecessary and possibly damaging errors. This is a testament to 
faith. The belief that you can achieve the seemingly impossible as long as you maintain your 

Initially, when I agreed to take on the job of Yamacraw Editor-in-Chief and "Revival- 
ist", I thought it would be a fitting and final gift to my peers and the University who both 
have went far too long without a yearbook. I felt it would be the one thing I would be remem- 
bered for. I realize now that the latter was not as admirable. Memories, legacies are created 
everyday. No 'book' will secure your place in the hearts and minds of those who encounter 
you on your journey through life. 

If you take anything from my 'self-righteous' and 'indulgent' rambling, please take 
this: Never give up. Don't ignore that little voice ii^idf^ou that keeps urging you toward 
what's right, what's true. Believe in yourseH". Dor^'t be afraid to go against the tide because, 
at the end of the day, ail you liave, on this mortal coil, iS yourself. There are so many things

Jt/pcated in the heart of the posh Brookhaven community is Oglethorpe 
University. It stands with its neo-gothic architecture, lording over the 
neighborhood, constantly serving as a reminder of the importance of education 
and the arts. Little is known about this intellectual fortress... until now. Hidden 
beneath the walls of this fair campus lies stories of times past and a legacy richer^ 
than any large dollar amount. 

4 Campus Life 

The legacy of Oglethorpe University stems back to the 18th century at its 
previous location in Midway, Georgia.The raison d'etre of old Oglethorpe is 
to found in the determination of Georgia Presbyterians to establish in the state 
an institution for the training of ministers. Chartered on December 21, 1835, 
the University commenced actual operations on January 1, 1838, at Midway, a 
small village near Milledgeville. At the time there w^gg^a^gut 125 students and 6 
faculty members. 

Campus Life f 

The school's cumculum 
consisted principally of courses 
dealing with Greek, Latin, classical 
literature, theology, and a surprising 
variety of the natural sciences. 
Admission requirements were geared 
to the cuniculai- structure; thus, 
one seeking to enter Oglethorpe 
as a freshman was required to 
exhibit before a faculty committee 
a reasonable command of Caesar's 
Commentaries, Cicero's Orations, 
the works of Virgil, the Gospels of 
the Greek Testament, Latin and Greek 
granamar, arithmetic, and geography. 

Among the most 
distinguished of the faculty during 
this early era were such men as 
Nathaniel Crawford, professor of 
mathematics and astronomy and son 
of the famous William Crawford, 
and Joseph LeConte, destined to 
world fame for his work in the field 
of science; and James Woodrow, an 
uncle of Woodrow Wilson and the first 
teacher in Georgia to hold the Ph.D. 
Her best known alumnus was the 
poet Sidney Lanier. Prior to 1860, the 
Bachelor of Arts was the only earned 
degree conferred by the institution; but 
there early developed the practice of 
awarding a second degree, the Master 
of Arts to any alumnus of three years' 

standing who was 
"of good moral 
character and who 
could show that 
he was engaged 
in some industrial 
or professional 

By the 
close of the 1850s, 
thanks largely to 
the able leadership 
of President 
Talmage, the 
institution had 

reached a new plateau of financial 
solidarity and academic soundness; 
but both were soon shattered by the 
outbreak of the Civil War. Although 
student enrollment at the beginning 
of the term in October of 1860 was as 
large as that of the preceding year, by 
the following fall, it had fallen sharply 
as students (as well as some faculty) 
departed to serve in the Confederate 

The collapse of the 
Confederacy delivered a heavy blow 
to the school, since her endowment by 
1 865 had come to consist largely of 
Confederate notes and bonds. 

At that time, the trustees 
concluded that further efforts towards 

restoring the vigor of the school, in 
its present location, were hopeless; 
they resolved, therefore, to transfer 
the University to Atlanta, partly 
because that city had recently replace4 
Milledgeville as the state capital, ^ 
partly because economic conditions 
there appeared to be more favorable. 
At the same time, the determined 
to convert the institution into a real 
university through the addition of new 
schools and departments. 

With a faculty of five 
professors in the college, six 
instructors in the law department, and 
three teachers in the University high 
school, the new Oglethorpe opened 
its doors on October 4, 1870, under 
the presidency of Dr. David Wills, a 
prominent Presbyterian minister. Its j 
location was the site now occupied | 
by the Atlanta City Hall. But the | 

move failed to bring the anticipated I 
success. Largely because of the sever^ 
economic dislocations following in l 
the wake of the war, Oglethorpe foundJ 
herself faced with the bankruptcy by 
the fall of 1872. Thereupon, the Syno^ 
of Georgia directed that operations be^ 
permanently discontinued. With that 
event, seemingly, the institution had 
reached the end of its existence. -^ 

The ensuing chapter in her \ 
histoi7 is synonymous with the name , 
of Thomwell Jacobs, who had first \ 
come to Atlanta in 1909 to serve as | 

executive secretary in a campaign 
to raise $150,000 for Agnes Scott 
College. By 1912, his thinking had 
crystallized into a determination 
to reestablish Oglethorpe. His 
first appeal for support was to the 
Presbyterian Minister's Association 
of Atlanta; his next step was to visit 
101 Presbyterian churches in the 
east, from each of which he secured a 
contribution of one thousand dollars 
or more toward the restoration of the 
school as a Presbyterian institution. 
Appropriately enough, the first 
Presbyterian congregation visited 
had been that at Milledgeville. In all, 
more than half a million dollars were 
given or subscribed toward the goal, 
about half of the sum coming from 
individuals and groups in the city 
of Atlanta itself. In such a manner 
did Oglethorpe re-arise. Chartered 
on May 8, 1913, the University 
had its physical regeneration with 
the laying of the cornerstone of the 
first building (the present Phoebe 
Hearst) on January 21, 1915, in the 
presence of some of the alumni of 
1860 and 1861. On the same day, 
the board of directors formally 
named Jacobs to the presidency. 

In the following year, 
the leaders of the new enterprise 
offered it, "Lock, stock, and barrel", 
in the words of Dr. Jacobs, to the 
General Assembly of the Southern 
Presbyterian Church, but for reasons 
not entirely clear, the offer was 
rejected. The new school, therefore, 
never maintained any formal 
relationship with the Presbyterian 

Jacobs envisioned Oglethoipe 
as a "living memorial" to James 
Oglethorpe and many of the 
landmarks and symbols of Oglethorpe 
University resulted from this drive 
to honor the founder of Georgia. 
The Gothic revival architecture was 
inspired by James Oglethorpe's 
honorary alma mater, Corpus Christi 

College, Oxford. The university's 
coat-of-arms, which included three 
boar's heads and the inscription 
Nescit Cedere ('He does not know 
how to give up), was based on the 
Oglethorpe family seal. 

Throughout the 1920s, the in 
stitution received extensive contribu- 
tions from several individuals. Most 
prominent of them were: 
J.T. Lupton of Chattanooga, 
whose gifts ultimately totaled 
about a million and a quarter 
dollars (Lupton Hall, built 
with his gifts, was opened in 
1927); Mrs. Robert J. Lowry, 
whose contributions were 
about $200,000 (Lowry Hall, 
built with money she con- 
tributed, was constructed in 
1927); Harry P. Hermance, 
who contributed $5,000 a 
year between 1919 and 1929 
toward the construction of 
Hermance Stadium; and William R. 
Hearst, who gave in all about a quar- 
ter of a million dollars (including the 
money for the purchase of the pres- 
ent Lake Phoebe and its surrounding 

By 1929, the situation, as 
summarized by Dr. Jacobs, was this: 
the University had one building 
valued at $425,000, another at 
$375,000, still another at $200,000, 
a stadium worth $100,000, and 
a campus of 600 acres worth 
$600,000, giving a total asset value 

of $1,850,000. Against this stood 
obligations amounting to $450,000, 
leaving net assets of $1,400,000. 
At about the same time, the student 
enrollment stood at approximately 
three hundred, the size of the faculty 
and staff at forty. 

By 1933, however, the general 
stability had been shattered by the 

impact of the Great Depression. 
Enrollment fell, income dropped, and 
debts rose sharply. Total indebtedness 
rose to well over half a million 
dollars and on one crucial occasion 
only the time intervention of Bernard 
Baruch saved the institution from 
foreclosure of a mortgage of about 
$240,000. The returning prosperity 
of the mid- 1930s brought with it a 
gradual restoration of stability in the 
affairs of Oglethorpe. The unflagging 
zeal of Dr. Jacobs and the untiring 
labor of Judge Edgar Watkins, who 
for many years was the president of 

the board of trustees and chairman of 
its executive committee, were of vital 
importance in the restoration. 

Whatever the final judgment 
of Dr. Jacobs' presidency, few wiE 
deny that in the area of public rela- 
tions he had the touch of genius. 
During his tenure, he launched sev- 
eral projects that brought national 
and even international repute 
to the school. One of these was 
his abortive effort to bring from 
England and Georgia the remains 
of James Oglethorpe. Another en- 
deavor that attracted widespread 
attention was the establishment 
in 1931 of a campus radio sta- 
tion, WJTL, as an educational 
facility for the offering of credit- 
carrying courses, a program that 
lasted for3 years. Perhaps the best 
known of all was the effort to pre- 
serve for posterity a cross-view 
of twentieth 
century life through 
the constraction of 
a Crypt of Civiliza- 
tion; by the time 
the door of the 
Crypt was closed 
in 1940, the story 
had become known 
thi'oughout the 
widtli and breadth 
of the land. 

Weltner, known 
for his work as 
an attorney and 
educator, began 
a new era at 

University in 1944. He and a group of faculty 
developed a new approach to undergraduate 
education called the "Oglethorpe Idea." This 
was one of the first efforts at creating a core 
curriculum and its aim was to "make a life and 
to make a living." The core included courses 
in "Citizenship" and "Human Understanding" 
as a part of a common learning experience for 
Oglethoipe students. 

The growth of Oglethorpe University 
continued in the 1960s with a facilities 
expansion program. In the 1980s Oglethorpe 
was classified in the category Liberal Arts I by 
the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement 
of Teaching. Oglethorpe is now a member 
of the Annapolis Group, a collection of the 
100 most selective liberal arts colleges. 
Oglethorpe continues to be a leader in the 
development and implementation of the core 
curriculum, which is funded in part by the 
National Endowment for the Humanities.

Dead Day in.) Formally known as "Reading/ 
Preparation Day", this is the day before final exams j 
begin each semester. It is a day set aside for study 
and rest before the rigors of finals. No classes meet 
on this day and no meetings of student organizations 
are held. 

Isn't that just great! As a means of "prepara- 
tion" and "rest" prior to Dead Day, the University 
plans a blowout party at a local hot spot (This year. 
The Library) where alcohol, food, music, and fun 
are in abundance. Can you possibly think of a better

The Jewish Student Union is organized 
and run by Jewish students at 
Oglethoipe. One goal of this 
organization is to create an 
renvironment for Jewish students 

eeking interaction with others 
jWho share their religious 

eliefs and holidays. Another 
Igoal is to provide an open and 
welcoming atmosphere for 
students of all faiths who are 

nterested in learning more about 

e Jewish religion and culture. The 
JSU invites all students to participate 
in two sponsored events throughout the 

chool year. During the fall semester 

here is the building of the sukkah during 
the Jewish holiday, Sukkot. In the spring 
semester the JSU celebrates Passover by 
observing the traditional dinner. Both 
of these events are held to celebrate and 
educate the Oglethorpe community about 
the Jewish holidays and beliefs. 

A hut, or sukkah, was built on the deck 
by the Emerson student center as part 
of Sukkot festivities. The sukkah was

XIS is the activist organization on campus for the tree 
huggers. From promoting awareness about 
enxironmental issues to supervising the 
student-run recycling program, ECOS 
has been an essential part of the 
Oglethorpe community for many 

ECOS holds an annual Earth- 
Day celebration on April 22nd which 
includes environmental speakers, 
campus clean-ups, camping trips and 
l)on fires. Also, there have been trash 
demonstrations to remind people to be 
mindful of their material consumption and 
increase recylcing awareness.For three years in 
a row we have sponsored a "no-driving day" 
adequately themed "Mend Your Fuelish Ways" 
where members of the Oglethorpe community signed a pledge 
stating that on that day they pledge to give up their driving 
privi ledges. The no driving day also included gorilla activism 
and sidewalk chalk telling student to "Get off your ass and walk 
to class." 

ECOS asks everyone to hug a tree, kiss a fish and try to do 
their part to help save our environment. Every little bit helps.

The Oglethorpe Carribean Student 
Association is a relatively new 
organization on Oglethorpe's campus. 
The group is primarily composed of 
students from the (duh) Carribean as 
well as others from various walks of 
life. Through activities such as Carribean 
Trivia Night, this organization has managed to 
increase awareness about their rich 
individual and collective heritage. 

James Hill, Greta, and Adonis Bovell show

Black Student Caucus, aka BSC,

slate of things to do was Gospel 
Night, the Annual Choir Day for 
the BSC. Soul Food Night, and the 
Talent Show. 

February has been the month 
when the BSC has really shown 
Oglethorpe its true colors, but the or-

Black History and awareness are cel- 
ebrated every month in the year.

Because the University serves as a "living 
leniorial" to the founder of Georgia, it features 
lany references to the Ufe and legend of General 
fames Oglethorpe. The school yearbook is named 
le 'Tamacraw" after the Native American tribe 
'ho befriended him and Georgia. This is also the 
^roup that made this book possible. Oglethorpe, 
indeed, owes a great debt to this group of dedicated 
students for all of the countless hours spent in the 
iffice, gathering historical and recent information 
tbout the University, as well as countless other du- 

This year marks the resurrection of the Yamac- 
•aw. Though the Yamacraw has the tendency to go 
out of publication for several years, hopefully, this issue will be 
the one to break this cycle that has served as a detriment to the 
preservation of Oglethoipe's legacy.

Urban Dance Steppers, or UDS Illusions, was estab- 
lished in January of 2003. The idea of formulating a 
dance team with more culture and rhythmic flavor 
actually began in late 2002. The founders, 
Chantae King and Sonal Narottam, were in the 
OU Cafeteria talking about starting another 
dance team and their determination drove them 
to find equally determined members. So there you 
have it. UDS kicked off 2003 by winning a campus 
talent show and ended the spring semester with a spec 
tacular performance at Stomp the Lawn, performing 
with top hip-hop acts, such as TI, Cee-Lo, and Baby D. 
UDS Illusions started the 2003-2004 school year with 
performances at the Lady Petrels' volleyball games,

The 2003-2004 Petrels return with a new look after bidding 
farewell to two four year contributors. With incredible depth 
on the perimeter, this Petrels squad will look to utilize its 
team speed and strength on the perimeter. Seniors Alyson 
; Adkisson and Nichole Gilleland will lead the way from the 
outside. Last season Nichole finished second in the SCAC 
for three-pointers per game. She and Alyson combined 
to shoot a remarkable 36% from the floor. Joining Laine 
Bradshaw (8'^' in the SCAC in assists) and Hannah York at 
the guard spots are three talented sophomores Megan Elliot, 
Erin Flynn and Tiffany Williams. All six of these ladies can 
hit the three and are legitimate threats from the outside. 
Inside the Petrels return Katie Michalczyk, Julie Colantoni 
[and Kirbie Smith. Joining this group are Sophomore Stefie Jo Janssen 
jand Freshman Brittany Corbett. Katie was the conferences second leading 
Irebounder and Julie finished 6'^ in the conference in scoring. Brittany and 
iKirbie will present match-up problems for opponents because of their 
[ability to play inside and out. With the leadership of two seniors on the 
[perimeter and the addition of four talented newcomers, the 2003-2004 
is the most talented from top to bottom.

leadership and along with Freshman 
Drue Malone will contend for the top 
spots. Freshman John Esterline joins 
two year letterman Chris Peck in 
giving us good mid depth. SR Aaron 
Whitworth moves from #4 to battle 


Chris Pape at #6. Our doubles will be 
stronger, and lends hopes of raising 
our level of Conference play as they 
strive for an overall winning record. 

The Lady Petrels tennis Team 

Although young with 3 freshman and two sophomores, Oglethorpe's 
Women's Team looks much improved. Three-year Letterman Danielle 
Wright returns but will be pushed by exchange student Celine Thimel for 

e top position. Frosh Antoinette Niland looks 
ecure in the #3 spot, and may challenge upward as 
e season progresses. Tiffany Williams and Ashley 
orrison will add solid depth as they return in the 
pring after Volleyball and Soccer seasons. Caroline 
ing, Lauren Bundy and Maggie Khoury will add 
k '^ ^ ^pompetitiveness at the bottom of the slate. With some 

■mL^ /^^ ^Biard work, the Women's team hopes to improve on

nlike most faculty at other uni- 

ersities, the faculty along with the 

ver-important staff of Oglethorpe 

niversity are... special. They pos- 

5SS that certain "something" 

that makes stu- \2J 

aeels clamour to hear their deep and in- 
sightful lectures on topics ranging from eugen- 
ics and its implications to ancient sex toys that 
are now regarded as pre-historic art. Regard- 
less what is said about the faculty and staff of 
Oglethoipe University, one thing rings espei- 
cally true and that is without them attending 
this fine institution would not be an uncommon 
experience. Thank you for your constant sup-

The faculty and staff talent show was in- 
deed a rare opportunity for students to see pro- 
fessors as well as other members of the admin- 
istrative staff outside of a professional context. 

Spectators were treated to musical per- 
formances from the likes of Chad Yarborough, 
Carl Lubbe, and Dr. John Orme, original spo- 
ken word pieces by Ms. Janet Grant and Dr. 
Chandler, and a show-stopping skit performed 
by members of the Psychology, Mathematics, 
and Education departments. 

Despite all this talent, only one could be 
crowned winner. Ms. Janet Grant won the cov- 
eted Maggiano's Dinner for two as well as the 
adulation of the audience.This event showed 
all in attendance that the talents of the faculty 
extend beyond the classrooms and their^ 
spected offices. 

Members of the Ed., 
Psych., and Math 
\departments re-enact 
a scence from your 
"average" Ogletho- 
rpe classroom. 

Heartbreak never sounded 
so good! Carl Lubbe bares 
his soul for the audience. 

Dk Nardo flexes his acting muscles 

while showing love for the lady in his 

life, Peepers. 

Ms. Janet mesmerizes the audience 
with an original spoken word piece. 

Dr. Deppe and colleagues fake interest 
during their faculty meeting. 

Dr Carton proclaims his devotion to 
Clay Aiken during this "faculty meet- 
ing gone terribly awry ". 

The man and his music. Dr. Orme tickles

Victoria Payne 

Senior Class President 

While at Oglethorpe University: 

I have been in several organiza- 
tions during my tenure here: the 
Stormy Petrel, Yamacraw, Ren- 
dez-Vous, Black Student Caucus, 
Ambassadors, Omicron Delta 
Kappa, Beta Omicron Sigma, the 
Gospel Choir, Oglethorpe Student 
Association, Programming Board, 
and Senate. 

What I think about myself: 
/ am a child of God, motivated 
by my God-given purpose and 
desire to make a difference in this 
world. I am a poet, a writer, a 
photographer, an artist, a singer, a 
songwriter, an actress, a Queen, a 
role model, a motivator, an enthu- 
siast, an optimist and a Christian. 
I love to share my smile and con- 
tentment with others. I have goals 
of becoming a contracted-singer, 
an actress, a producer of music, 
a middle school choir teacher, a 
free-lance photographer, a beauty 
professional (a beautician), a 
wife, and a mother I am also a 
product of what my parents have 
poured in to me as well as my 
experiences. The most important 
thing is that I love the Lord, and 
I want to do His will for my life. 
We can 't make it throught life on 
own; we all need somebody.

These losers are way too cool to participate in a senior picture retake. So, as punishment, their 
I.D. pictures will have to suffice for their senior picture. Some say the pictures are awful and 
others... Hey! You be the judge. Let this serve as a lesson for all to support Yamacraw and class

Eugene Rivers II 

Sophomore Class Presidentl 

On December 2nd, 20003, his 
fans cheered his name. "Eugene! 
Eugene!" Well it did not hap- 
pen quite like that, but I had fans 
nonetheless. So, remember you 
are all fans of mine. This is not a 
funny story, but the Public Speak- 
ing final was the greatest. Hey, if 
anyone needs me to inspire a large 
group of people with my great 
skills, please call INS-SPIRE! 
This, like my ability to speak in 
front of people and be as cool as 
Bernard, is just a joke. Thanks for 
your support at the final! 

*The above photo was taken before 
Eugene murdered Bernard after he 
yelled "Don t Suck" at Eugene's 

By the look on his face, Meredith
