Dr. Tim Doyle, Dean of Students 

"It is traditional that each edition of the 
Yamacraw be dedicated to a member of the 
Oglethorpe community. The dedication is 
made to a person who exemplifies what is best 
about Oglethorpe, a person who embodies the 
unique personality and spirit of Oglethorpe 

Dean Doyle is a well known and well loved 
figure on our campus. As a professor of his- 
tory he entertained and educated us through 
many grueling semesters. Now, as Dean of 
Students, he has spearheaded many efforts to 
revive enthusiasm and school spirit. Not the 

least of his accomplishments are the hiring of Bon 
Appetit two years ago, the rapid progress on the 
rebuilding of Upper Quad, and the resurrection 
of the Yamacraw. His successes, both past and 
future, will continue to serve the student body of 
Oglethorpe University for many generations of 
classes to come. 

And so. Dean Doyle, in thanks for your 
hard work and determination on behalf of the 
students of Oglethorpe University, we offer you 
our profound thanks. It is to you that the 2005 
Yamacraw is dedicated. We look forward to many 
more years of working with you.

Dear Oglethorpe Student, 

It is my honor to introduce the 2004-05 Yamacraw. This book stands 
as testament to a tiny staff of dedicated students who take the time to 
commemorate this year's shared experiences. Milestones throughout 
the past year — ranging from the Presidential election to OU's largest 
freshman class — represent the world both inside and outside the 
''bubble/' and merit documentation for us and our successors. 

Most importantly though for individuals, students will graduate. I 
am proud of them and for them. These soon-to-be alumni committed 
to OU in an uncertain world scarred by economic and terrorist 
trauma: they leave our school when it is healthy and moving 
forward. Many students have contributed to make it so. I salute 
the Upper Quad residents' tolerance of construction; the new and 
expanding programs in Theater and Study Abroad; and a refocusing 
on a dynamic athletic program. More improvements are on the way. 

OU promises to help students "Make a life. Make a living. Make a 
difference." I trust that this book will, in the passage of time, link 
you to memories where these aspirations were met. 

All my best wishes and hopes, 

Tim Doyle 

Dean of Students and 

Vice President for Student Affairs 

4 Introduction 

Bisell McWilliams - Editor and Chief/ Photography Editor 

The 1942 classic film Casablanca was on all our minds when we 
set the theme of the 2005 Yamacraw, "As Time Goes By." Something in 
the characters, in the root causes and emotions of the story, captured 
a truth that is beyond circumstance or setting. My primary goal was 
to produce the best yearbook possible, to capture the events and 
memories both of individuals and of the university as a whole. At the 
same time, however, I was conscious of the historical changes that have 
shaped who we are today and how those captured truths permeate 
our history. I was thinking of all the changes that are happening on 
this campus, administrative turnover, professors retiring, and new 
construction projects. For those of us who spend just four years here, these changes seem incredible. 
Indeed, much of what has occurred this year will, I think, prove to be momentous in the course of the 
University's history. What I was more interested in, however, was the larger picture. What the song 
"As Time Goes By" tells us, is that no matter what may change, there are still certain fundamentals 
which will always remain. Friendships are cemented, hearts are broken, politics proves unavoidable, 
and a dusting of snow merits a page in every yearbook in Georgia. 

Meredith McKay - Layout/Design Editor 

Get up, go to class, work on the yearbook, go to Conant, go to 
rehearsal, work on the yearbook, write a paper, go to bed, dream about 
working on the yearbook 

This is what it is like to live for a day in my shoes. However, while 
it would be amusing to continue this train of thought, Bisell wants this 
page to be slightly more formal and serious in nature. Therefore, I will no 
longer endeavor to be witty and charming and will simply state, with an 
air of formality and seriousness of purpose, that despite the long hours, my 
work with Bisell, Ginny, and the rest of the yearbook staff has been terribly 
rewarding. Given another full year, I have to admit that I would likely submit myself to 
over again. 

the process all 

* Virginia Brown - Copy Editor 

When Bisell asked me to be copy editor for the Yamacraw this year, 
my first reaction was, "Are you kidding me? As if I need anything else 
on my plate." Of course I didn't say this to him. . . I believe my external 
response was something along the lines of, "hmm... I'll think about it." 
I then proceeded to think about it (always the first mistake of the liberal 
arts student). And what I thought about was this: I have spent nearly 
four years in this place, and I love it. I love my class — a great group of 
k,^ interesting, intelligent, and fun people, that I will be proud to cross the 

Yy stage with on May 7*. I love the faculty, both in my own department 

and out of it. I love the bells, and the library. I love (I admit it) the Core. 
I love that when I watched Good Will Hunting last summer I recognized 
half the names and works that Matt Damon mentions in his intellectual bar brawl. I love all these 
things about Oglethorpe, and I wanted to be a part of preserving bits and pieces of the Oglethorpe 
experience, for myself, my classmates, and for generations yet to come. So, when Bisell asked me 
again about being the copy editor, I said yes. And the rest, as they say, is. . .

Russ Churchwell 


Churchwell breaks SCAC all-time 
scoring record 

ATLANTA, G A - Senior forward Russ 
Churchwell of Oglethorpe had 23 points to 
surpass Sewanee's Ryan Harrigan and become 
the SCAC men's all-time leading scorer with 
1,676 points. Oglethorpe needed almost every 
one of those points as the Petrels pulled out 
a 70-66 victory over Millsaps Saturday at 
Dorough Fieldhouse. Harrigan's record of 
1,675 career points had stood since 1998. 
Churchwell also had 11 rebounds and moved 
into third place on the all-time rebounding list 
with 742 boards. He is 18 from second place 
and 19 from the record - currently held by Joe 
Ringger of DePauw (761). 

Oglethorpe now boasts both the men's 
and women's all-time leading scorer. Heather 
Francoeur (99/00-02/03) is the SCAC's career 
leader among both men's and women's players 
with 1,795 points.

at OU but on pace to finish 2"-^ at OU. Stefie Jo Janssen, Brittany 
Corbett and Megan Elliott are all among the conference leaders 
in scoring. Senior Katie Michalczyk is ranked in the top 10 in the 
conference in rebounding. Kirbie Smith has played almost every 
position this season because of her knowledge of the game. Kim 
Wiley is providing solid minutes inside and Hannah York comes 
off the bench to knock down outside shots. Latoya McCants has 
been solid defensively. Freshmen Chiquita Douglas, Amy Fortener, 
Carly Hallman and Racquel McGhee have all contributed in their

teammates graduated. Coach Peter Howell says "We will be hard pressed to 
duplicate last year's records, but these teams have great potential." On the men's 
team this season all the players are exciting prospects this season and, according 
to Coach Howell create a team depth and strength. The women's team members 
all plan to work hard to maintain the team's stellar record. Overall, Coach Howell

The modern era of baseball at Oglethorpe enters its 14th season and with it brings a new coach 
and a new attitude. Long time coach Bill Popp left to become Baseball coach and AD at Reinhardt 
College. Taking over the helm is Dan Giordano who is no stranger to the program. Oglethorpe 
enters this season with a long tradition of excellence on and off the field. The Petrels can boost 
eight former Major Leaguers as well as All- Americans, All Region performers and countless All- 
SCAC award winners. Looking towards the future Giordano says, " We are in the process of 
developing a strong foundation for baseball recruits that will continually give us quality student 
athletes year in and year out." They expect to increase numbers every year and to start winning 
Conference Championships in the short future. "With the administration's new optimism on 
athletics we feel we are backed 100% and that support will go a long way towards building a 
solid athletic program." The future is bright.

During coach Bob Unger 's tenure as a track coach at 
Oglethorpe, his teams have boasted 52 victories in dual meets 
while losing only 17. For over a decade, Unger 's squads have been 
producing an assortment of honors both in the classroom and at 
the track, including numerous Academic All- Americans and All- 
Coriference awards, as well as a handful of NCAA qualifiers. Unlike 
other sports, track and field is much more competitive between 
divisions. It is for this reason that in the past, Unger 's squads have 
on occasion posted higher marks than even competitors from larger 
Division I and II schools. 

Track season begins in January, and stretches through the 
begirming of May. Oglethorpe's track and field team is hard at 
work every weekday afternoon for several hours, improving fastest 
times, longest distances, and highest heights. With a combination 
of experienced upperclassmen and talented newcomers, the Stormy 
Petrels are always looking to improve upon their finishes from the 
year before. The graduation of numerous conference leaders from 
other SCAC schools means that Oglethorpe can realistically expect to 
move up the competitive ranks of the conference this season.

The 2004 season was an interesting and exciting time. Both 
teams are relatively "yoimg" in the sport. Holen Brady is the only 
senior on the women's team and Tom CoUens and Josh Mclntyre are 
the only seniors on the men's team. 

A cadre of freshman men joining the squad have the 
distinction of having competed against each other in years past 
while attending high school: Michael Smith, Steve Horzewski and 
Travis Belton attended local high schools and donned the same 
uniform for the first time when the men opened their season at the 
Sewanee Invitational Sept. 4. 

Holen Brady, hopes to continue to lead the pack but could be 
closely followed by her sister ~ freshman Gillian Brady. They will be 
joined by one other freshman, Muyinat Taiwo, who is a newcomer 
to the sport and several upperclassmen who will be completing their 
first full season on the team.

The Lady Petrel volleyball team took a small step backward 
in their quest for a SCAC Championship. Finishing the season 6- 
29 and 1-17 in the conference, it's hard to find bright spots in what 
seems to be a dismal season. "You have to keep working and 
believing that one day all the hard work is going to start paying 
off." Giordano said. "We need to learn and grow every single day 
as a team. The spring workouts will let us continue to work on 
fundamentals and also grow together as a team." 

Though the team struggled there were some great individual 
achievements. Senior setter Gretchen Coll became the school's 
second all time assist leader and only the second player in school 
history to finish her career with more than 3,000 assists and 1,000 
digs. Sophomore standout Katie Kelly had one of the best seasons 
ever for a Petrel. She finished with the third best kills per game 
and second best digs per game in any one season. The Petrels also 
placed four members on the SCAC Fall Honor Roll which rewards 
a 3.25 or better GPA during the playing season. Those members 
include Gretchen Coll, Mallory Summers, Jessica Anderson and 
Emily Hannigan. But no matter how successful the individual 
members, they must strive towards the ultimate team goal of a 
SCAC championship.

Dr. Large 

Dr. Larry Large has been president of Oglethorpe for 
six years, beginning April 1999. In his time here, he 
has significantly raised the profile of the university 
within Atlanta and the southeastern region. He has 
developed many new academic programs, including 
Urban Ecology, Oglethorpe University Students 
Abroad, a theatre major, and a Master of Arts in 
Teaching. During his time here, he has overseen the 
development of the campus master plan and other 
plans to guide the next stage of Oglethorpe's future. 
Oglethorpe Board of Trustees Chairman Warren Jobe 
described Large as a leader who brought structure 
and creative strategies to the university amid 
growing challenges to American higher education. 
Among students, he is known as a friendly and 
welcoming figure, always ready with a smile and a 
greeting. We will miss him, and wish him the best of 
luck in the next phase of his life.

Study Aoroad 

Living in another country is an experience like no other. 
Actually staying with other students or with a host family 
helps a study-abroad participant really live life in another 
culture and not be only an observing tourist. For these reasons, 
Oglethorpe encourages students to study-abroad through the 
Oglethorpe University Students Abroad (OUSA) program. 
The international exchange institutions are schools that have a 
special connection with Oglethorpe and serve as sister schools 
throughout the world. They are located in Latin America, 
China, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, and Russia, 
and cost essentially the same as what a student would pay at 
Oglethorpe. A student can also act as a transient student at 
another university and study abroad through a program offered 
at that other university; the OUSA advisor can help facilitate 
this non-partnership study abroad. Finally, OUSA sponsors 
short study abroad trips every year. These trips, for which the 
students receive academic credit, are offered in December, March, 
and May, and are led by professors. These various programs 
- whether studying at a partnership school, finding another 
university study abroad program, or taking a short trip - enhance 
the liberal arts education and experience. They offer the chances 
to meet new friends, taste strange foods, struggle with cultural 
barriers, and learn about one's own culture and society, as well as 
those of another country. Quite simply, OUSA is a great way for 
Oglethorpe students to live life outside of The Bubble!

International students at Oglethorpe come from thirty-five countries from 
around the world. Many of them attend universities that are sister schools to 
Oglethorpe. Coming to study in the United States is a difficult task for them 
and requires great dedication. International students must take the difficult 
standardized test called TOEFL, guarantee their ability to support themselves 
financially, often with little assistance, and must overcome communication 
barriers in the application process. All of their hard work pays off, though, and 
they tend to have very high GPA's at Oglethorpe. Most stay for a year, though 
some fall in love with Oglethorpe and decide to complete their education 
here. To help them acclimate. Community Life sets up various programs to 
take them around Atlanta, and the International Club often provides a base for 
starting friendships. By having these students at Oglethorpe, the international 
students get to taste American life, and Oglethorpe students make friends from 
around the world!

iewed students as junior colleagues about to enter the field, and has enjoyed 
uilding personal relationships with both students and faculty. His smile

The Tower

The Tower is Oglethorpe University's 
literary magazine. Traditionally the Tower 
has published one issue each spring, collecting 
fiction, essays, poetry, and visual artwork from 
students throughout the school year. This year, 
we have added a staff-only issue in the fall, 
entitled Of Babel, which we hope will become 
an annual publication as well. The Tower takes 
its name from the Lupton Bell Tower, where 
our offices were originally located. 

The Tower aims to provide an outlet 
for artistic expression in the Oglethorpe 
community by publishing a magazine of 
student work. In addition to our publications, 
the Tower is starting to provide a regular 
workshop environment where writers can 
meet to critique and encourage one another. 
We are also responsible for running two events 
each year. Night of the Arts, held each fall, is 
a chance for OU students, staff, and faculty 
to share their talents through performance. 
Massacouer, held on Valentine's Day, is a 
celebration of love /hate and is often a chance 
for students to participate in a more informal 
open mic performance.

The Stormy Petrel 

The Stormif Petrel has been Oglethorpe's student-run newspaper since 1919. We have gone 
through many revisions, from developing new layouts to creating new sections, as a long line of 
editors have tried their hand at running the paper. The 2004-2005 year brings us all the way to 
our 80"" volume 

The purpose of The Stormy Petrel is to provide news to the Oglethorpe community, 
particularly the news that relates to what happens on our own campus. This year we have 
moved from a bi-weekly to a weekly paper, and we're working to build relationships with all the 
departments, clubs, and organizations at OU. We do our best to both inform and entertain our 
readers with a new issue every Friday.

communities, gain leadership skills, and 
socialize with other college students. Circle 
K has existed on the Oglethorpe campus 
at many points in the past. After a hiatus, 
Oglethorpe Circle K started again several 
years ago after a determined group of 
students brought this organization back into 

existence at Oglethorpe. It is now a strong 
organization of students who want to help the 
Atlanta community. 

Oglethorpe Circle K exists primarily 
to help students find places to volunteer in 
the Atlanta community. A few of the activities 
include playing with and teaching children 
at places such as the Brookhaven Boys and 
Girls Club, preparing food at the Atlanta 
Community Food Bank and Project Open 
Hand, and stocking the thrift store of the St. 
Vincent de Paul Society. Additionally, Circle 
K is a great place for Oglethorpe students to 
meet and gives them the chance to meet other 
college students through club interaction.

ECOS is a group with a progressive 
mindset and a concern for the environment 
in which we live. We represent the student 
voice on campus with regard to environmental 
issues and we promote a general awareness of 
issues such as recycling and conservation. We 
have been a vital component of this campus for 
several years and have helped to further define 
the "flavor" of the Oglethorpe community. 

ECOS sponsored its first bake sale 
this year and we also have our hemp jewelry 
sale every Fall Semester in order to fundraise 
for our big Spring Semester projects, such as 
Earth Week! During this week and on Earth 
Day itself, we have environmentally-oriented 
activities, such as a "no-driving day" As the 
sidewalk chalk says: "Get off your ass and 
walk to class!" It is our goal to encourage 
conscientiousness and a love for the world 
in which we all coexist. Peace, Love, and 
Cookies. . . and Pudding. . . and Mud. 

Far Right: Sarah Summerfield is ever 
on duty, separating the recycling.

University Singers and Chorale 

University Singers is the primary musical organization at Oglethorpe University. The 
ensemble provides for the study and performance of significant choral literature w^ithin the 
liberal arts context of the University and is open to students of all disciplines. The approximately 
thirty-five member, mixed-voice concert choir rehearses three hours each week for one hour 
of academic credit. Repertoire includes sacred and secular literature, both accompanied and 
unaccompanied, ranging from the fifteenth century to the present. Every semester, Uruversity 
Singers performs at several small events, such as church services and retirement homes, in 
addition to their full-length concert at the end of every term and the Boar's Head Ceremony in 

In addition to the Oglethorpe University Singers, Oglethorpe's music department also 
includes University Chorale, a small chamber choir auditioned from the membership of the 
University Singers. The skill and musicianship of the Chorale allows for the performance of 
more complex and virtuosi music. This group performs in conjunction with the Singers at major 
concerts and events.

The Theatre Program's official performance company, the Playmakers, is one of the oldest campus 
organizations at the University Mounting a season of four full faculty-directed productions per year, 
one of which is often presented by Alpha Psi Omega, the company is dedicated to providing laboratory 
opportunities for student actors, technicians, and dramaturges that embrace a wide range of styles, 
historical periods, and points-of-view. Traditionally, one production per year is a theatre piece for young 
audiences performed as a benefit for local Atlanta children's charities. 

This season's productions included: The Dining Room, Dancing At Lughnasa, The Dinosaur Play, Top 
Girls, and The Odyssey of Modesty Forth. In addition to all of these, the growing theatre department, in an 
effort to embrace the newly established theater major, has also begun to add a laboratory setting for student 
directed production through the class "Directing for the Stage 1" in the fall semester. 

Although productions, auditions, and classes are open to all students, as well as to faculty and staff, 
there are a few hard working students are selected each year to be members of Alpha Psi Omega (a national 
drama fraternity) for their dedication and excellent work within the Playmakers program. The current 
members of Alpha Psi Omega are: Kim Edminston (senior), Jesse Hinson (junior), Meredith McKay (junior), 
and Marie Sutherland-Lawless (junior).

Since its conception in January of 2003, Urban Dance Steppers 
has played a very active and integral part in the development of 
student spirit here at Oglethorpe University. The organization, 
also known as UDS Illusions, was founded by graduate members 
Chantae King and Sonal Narottam. Along with five other Oglethorpe 
students, the Urban Dance Steppers formed a new dance team with 
the idea of incorporating more culture and rhythmic flavor into their 
performances. After winning a campus wide talent show, this group 
of exciting dancers took the Oglethorpe campus by storm. When 
the Urban Dance Steppers perform, you know that you're going to see 
a showl These dancers perform at various functions throughout the 
school year including Lady Petrels' volleyball games, basketball 
games. Homecoming, and Stomp the Lawn. They also provide a 
large amount of support for the Athletic Department and can be seen 
cheering on our teams from the stands.

"I trade sweat for strength... I trade 
doubt for beHef... I trade cheerleading 
for nothing." The Oglethorpe University 
cheerleading program is a student activity as 
well as a sport. As such, its first and foremost 
responsibility to the student is to support and 
not to compromise the student's academic 
career. Secondly, the program aids in the 
overall development of the student participant 

into a responsible, mature, and independent 
adult. The newly revamped Oglethorpe 
University Cheerleading squad has provided 
a large amount of support for the athletic 
department this year. That support is directed 
to: (1) raise the level of fan support for the 
athletics program by performing gymnastics, 
partner stunts, and dance movements tokeep 
the crowd's attention and direction focused 
towards the floor, and (2) to serve as public 
relations ambassadors for the college. Their 
energetic cheers and catchy chants have 
captivated the Oglethorpe community and 
have helped to strengthen the spirits of our 
Stormy Petrels.

The Oglethorpe Chess Club was 
founded in the 2004 spring semester. The 
initial leadership included Stuart Spetseris 
(President), Dallas Greene (Secretary), 
Kate Thompson (Treasurer), Ben Minor 
(Parliamentarian), and Dr. Steen (Advisor). 
We had biweekly playing sessions and 
held a school-wide tournament on April 
3, 2004. Though the OCC is still in its 

developing stages, it should prove to be a 
lasting organization and asset to Oglethorpe 

The purpose of the OCC is to allow and 
encourage the playing of chess and provide 
those interested with the necessary materials to 
do so. Furthermore, we intend to enlighten the 
Oglethorpe community though chess. We also 
intend to enter intramural chess tournaments 
with other colleges. The main event for this 
year is the Second Annual Chess Tournament 
in April 2005.

Our group of members was founded in order to allow accounting majors to interact with 
other accounting majors outside of their classes and help them gain connections with members 
of accounting firms and other companies so that they can find employment after graduation. 
We have evolved a lot over the years and are currently involved in a service project with Cafe 
458 (a non-profit soup kitchen) and we also host two receptions for accounting majors to mingle 
with business professionals in order to obtain employment. Our plan for the spring of 2005 is to 
host a raffle at one of the basketball games in order to help get people out to enjoy each other's 
company as well as support Oglethorpe athletics.

Chi Phi 

Chi Phi was founded in the 10* century AD by roaming 
warlords bent on the destruction of the petty remains of 
civilization in Europe and are considered largely responsible for 
the Dark Ages being so darn long. These savages were among 
the first practitioners of witty banter, which they used to torture 
their captives and slaves, leading them on in stunning examples 
of circular reasoning and obnoxious wordplay. It is believed the 
warlords' primary goal for destroying civilization was so they 
would seem even smarter in contrast to the bookless, stinking 

Our organization has changed over the intervening 
centuries, transforming into a benevolent society of likeminded 
individuals who wish to bring knowledge and hard-partying into 
the lives of others, as well as witty banter (we no longer approve 
of torture, however, and are fully compliant with the Geneva 
Conventions). The Chi Phi Halloween party is widely considered 
to be the best party of the year, unless you like standing around 
getting uncomfortable while some girl is grinding on a pole.

The Alpha Nu chapter of the Delta

founded in 1835 in Milledgeville, Georgia, 
and after both the Civil War and World 
War I the chapter was reinstated at 
Oglethorpe. Today, as we enter this 
new century, we at Alpha Nu are proud 
to carry the torch handed down by the 
brothers who came before us. Delta Sigma 
Phi is continuing to grow, and currently 
boasts a membership that is involved 
on campus and in the community. More 
importantly, the ideals of Delta Sigma 
Phi are alive in the hearts of every one 
of our brothers. Almost eighty years 
ago, a group of men with foresight and 
courage established the Alpha Nu chapter 
of the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity at 
Oglethorpe University. Today, we follow 
in their footsteps, "that the world may

country throughout the year, 
and the Oglethorpe campus was 
no exception. While organized 
political activity was scant on 
campus, tensions ran high as 
students touted their chosen 
candidates via bumper stickers, 
badges, and signs hung in dorm 
windows. It all escalated on 
election night, November 2nd, 
as many students gathered in 
common rooms and TV lounges 
all across campus to tune in to

long campaign. November 3rd

On August 21, 2004, an uncommonly large freshman class moved into 
the assorted residence halls at Oglethorpe University. With the help of 
several sports teams and some dedicated club members, unpacking 
went smoothly as eager students settled into Upper Quad, New Res, 
and, of course, Traer. While parents lingered and the food still seemed 
tasty, students began to mix and mingle in order to discover whether 
or not they would have a place to go when the roomies became 

Once classes began on Tuesday, the reality of college life hit - hard. 
With classes consuming a minimal portion of the day, there was simply 
nothing to do. By September, the sheer and utter boredom of college 
left many freshmen in the dark about what to do with their spare 
time. Ironically, the series of hurricanes than ran through the campus 
left students in the dark as well. The combination of spare time and 
inclement weather led several freshmen to attempt the age-old sport of 

Soon enough, more of the freshmen insanity emerged. Late-night 
shenanigans became the norm as certain individuals jumped from 
smoke-filled walkways into the unfortunate bushes below, and others 
revealed their questionable mental state by subjecting themselves 
to Dr. William Brightman's Narratives of the Self I class. Only five 
of these particular freshmen opted to take Dr. Brightman's second 
session. Maybe Sally and Sam should be committed. 

Some upper-classmen wonder at the competence of the freshmen. 
Some freshmen doubt the intelligence of their peers. Even though Traer 
seems to be the new party central, especially after the destruction of 
the Upper Quad, the diversity of the class of 2008 promises to briiig 
new life to Oglethorpe. Transitions are hard, but this class has done a 
beautiful job, and only has room to improve in the years to come.

The Joys of Progress 

Beginning Summer 2004, Oglethorpe ushered in 
a new era of campus life with the demolition of 
Trustee and Dempsey halls to make way for the 
new Upper Quad residence building. Ground was 
broken on September 8th for the new hall, which will 
house 160 students in four-person suites featuring 
single rooms, a common room, kitchenette, and two 
full bathrooms. The new hall will actually be two 
buildings connected by a glassed-in staircase, and 
will feature such amenities as game and media rooms, 
as well as additional lecture, conference, and study 
spaces. Construction is slated to wrap up by the start 
of the 2005-2006 school year, at which time the OU 
community will rejoice- both for the completion of a 
much-needed asset to the growing campus, and for 
the cessation of construction which was the bane of 
Upper Quad residents' early morrung sleep schedules 
for most of the year. But this is only the beginning of a 
much-anticipated transformation of the OU campus, 
which includes a second phase of residence hall 
development on the Quad, as well as the construction 
of a state-of-the-art student center to replace the aging 
Emerson Student Center, to be built on the site where 
Goodman Hall now stands.

Fearsome'' Weather 

The 2004-2005 school year saw its share of 
inclement weather. Three hurricanes passed 
through Atlanta on their way north from 
Florida, leaving in their wake nearly as much 
devastation as the Spring Breakers who pass 
through Atlanta in the same direction. It was 
also the year for the ice storm /snow day 
that hits Atlanta every few years. This is the 
day when local students panic and /or play 
outdoors whilst students from anywhere 
north ofTennessee look on with a mix of 
bewilderment and good-natured contempt. 
In each instance, OU's students adapted 
quite well. After all, power outages, insect 
migrations and flooding are all a normal part of 
life here at Oglethorpe.

Trick or Treat in Traer 


A community joins together to help bring smiles, laugh- 
ter and even screams to local children. "Trick or Treat in Traer" 
is a Halloween party for local groups like "Boys and Girls 
Club," Lynwood Park After School program, Kipp Path Acad- 
emy, and other child based centers. Sponsored by Alpha Phi 
Omega, this annual event is the culmination of several months' 
worth of planning (led this year by Vice President of Service, 
Amy Lowe). 

The party starts with children and APO volunteers 
dressing up in their Halloween costumes. The bottom floor 
of Traer is transformed into a Haunted House, while the top 
floors offer games, crafts, and food for the trick-or-treaters. 
Hallways are decorated and many residents dress up for the 
children, handing out candy when the kids knock on their 

This year's theme was "Story Book Characters." The 
event was attended by 100 kids and over 35 volunteers from 
APO and Circle K. Most popular was the Haunted House, 
where kids watched witches brewing potions and crazy 
doctors in the midst of bloody surgery, while eerie sounds 
came from walls and corners. More timid kids enjoyed games 
such as the lolli-pop tree, ring toss, and pin the nose on the 
pumpkin. The kids received prizes when they won a game. 
Also popular was the Gypsy fortune teller played by Dallas 

With so much help and support, "Trick or Treat in Traer" 
was a great success! APO and Circle K are looking forward to 
next year as they ponder new ways to shock and delight trick-

In November, Casino Night- 
which has become a favorite occasion 
in the past few years, and may well be 
on its way to becoming a solid campus 
tradition- returned to Oglethorpe. The 
event saw the dining hall transformed 
into a Last Vegas style casino, 
featuring tables staffed by members 
of the Programming Board, which also 
sponsored the event. Although many 
wouldn't mind having a good chunk 
of their $50 activities fee handed 
back to them to gamble away as they 
please, students were instead allotted 
fake currency with which to hedge 
bets on games such as craps, blackjack, 
roulette, and high /low slots. 

Big winners were eligible to win 
one of a multitude of quality prizes- 
one of two X-Box gaming systems, one 
of three 19-inch color TVs, or one of 

the few personal DVD players, board 
games, CDs, DVDs, and even a much- 
coveted $100 gift certificate to the OU 

Sophomore Kira McCabe 
summed up her Casino Night 
experience as bittersweet. "Blackjack is 
fun until you split two aces, each pair 
totaling to 16, and you lose half your 
chips." Other than that, however, she 
says she had an enjoyable experience. 

Crystal Harris, also a sophomore 
as well as a PB member, serv^ed as 
one of the dealers in her second year 
working on the event. "People were 
happy with the games, and the prizes 
were bigger and better this year," she 
said, noting that attendance was good 
and that she considered it an "overall

up at the Boar's Head 


The Boar's Head ceremony has been 
an Oglethorpe tradition since 1944. 
The celebration always begins with 
a private induction ceremony for 
the new members of Omicron Delta 
Kappa. The public ceremony begins 
with the procession of new inductees 
and old members of Omicron Delta 
Kappa wearing academic regalia and 
carrying the boar's head on a litter. 

The school worked hard to bring 
this year's Boar's Head ceremony 
back to its roots. When the event first 
began at Oglethorpe, it was more a 
party for professors and students than 
a formal event. This year's celebration 
reflected that lighter tone, inviting 
the audience to participate and even 
staging a puppet show to accompany 
the traditional reading of the Boar's 
Head legend. 

In addition to the induction 
ceremony, the celebration featured a 
holiday concert that wove together 
performances by the Oglethorpe 
University Singers, led by Dr. Irwin 
Ray, the Oglethorpe Dancers, and 
the Salvation Army brass sextet. The 
faculty reading, chosen and read this 
year by Dr. Douglas McFarland, was

Vwins into Tour li.oarin3 20/../* 

Homecoming week 2005 began with the men and women's 
homecoming basketball games, and following these games, 
Oglethorpe students celebrated throughout the week featuring the 
daily "Spirit Week" themes of "Black and Gold Day," "Twin Day" 
"Pajama Day" "Retro/70s Day," and finally "Tacky Day" All 
of this silliness then culminated in the Homecoming Dance. The 
dance was held Friday February 18 at the Westin Buckhead, with 
shuttles running between the dance and the school from 9PM 
until 2AM. The theme of the night was "Swing into Your Roaring 
Twenties," and plenty of Oglethorpe students celebrated in 1920's 
fashion. Students all around seemed to be enjoying themselves. 
The room at the Westin was spacious enough for many tables, 
which were great for laughing with friends and munching on the 
yummy food. At the same time, the dance floor was consistently 
packed with students, who were definitely enjoying throwing 
all cares away and dancing to their hearts' content. Part way 
through the evening, the 2005 graduates did a Senior Walk, and 
then the 2005 Lord and Lady Oglethorpe were announced. With a 
response of many cheers and applause, Jillian Martin was crowned 
Lady Oglethorpe and Danny McGuinn Lord Oglethorpe. Once 
again, the students picked up their dancing, and the packed room 
reverberated with energy until the end. Homecoming 2005 was 
indeed a "roaring" success.
