Dedication 






Every year, the Yamacraw 

staff dedicates its book to 

facutly or staff who have 

somehow transformed or 

tremendously made 

Oglethorpe a place in 

which to "make a life, 

make a living, and make a 

difference" to all of us. 

This year, we dedicate the 

2007-2008 yearbook to the 

newly retired Professor of 

Music, Dr. James Bohart, 

Professor of Philosophy, 

Dr. Philip Neujahr, and 

Professor of English, Dr. 

William Brightman, for 

their many years of hard 

work and amazing 

dedication to this school, 

our bubble, and for four 

years or more, our way of 

life. 

Thank you. 
The Yamacraw Staff

Night of the Arts 





As in the past, the staff of Oglethorpe's resident literary magazine, The 

Tower, organized 2007's Night of the Arts. Scheduled during Parent's 

Weekend, the event allows students free reign to exhibit their talents 

both for students and visiting parents in Emerson's Talmage Room. 

Audience members enjoyed the refreshments and Hitchcock-themed 

decorations as emcee Nick Etherington (playing Alfred Hitchcock) 

introduced the acts. Additonally, across the building in the TV Lounge, 

Dr. Alan Loehle displayed student artwork.

The Stormy Petrel 



The Stormy 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 2007-2008 year brings us all the way to 

our 83rd 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 campus. 

For the 2007 school year, there are 7 sections that complete The Stormy 

Petrel: News, Life in the Bubble, Global, Opinions, Arts and 

Entertainment, Sports, and Hindsight.

exactly how to budget, build credit, invest capital, buy a house/car/ 

insurance, etc. Meeting successfiil executives & entrepreneurs provides 

members with perspectives and advice from qualified individuals for ' 

continuous self-growth. In addition, EEI organizes dynamic awareness 

events on campus to increase student activism. By giving leadership & 

management roles in planning events to interested members, with our 

support, members learn skills to become even more effective leaders. \ 

And finally, by involving members with community- oriented activities,

hterfaith Council 




Religious life at Oglethoqje has flourished the past three semesters. In Fall of 

2006, almost simultaneously three new religious groups formed. The Jewish 

Student Union (JSU), the Muslim Student Association (MSA), and the Catholic 

Student Union (CSU) joined with the previously existing Campus Crusade for 

Christ (CRU) and, soon thereafter, all four joined to form the Interfaith Council 

of Oglethorpe University. This year the Interfaith Council hosted Dr. Darlene 

R. May, who spoke on the many roles of women in Islam. It hosted a joint Rosh 

Hashanah- Ramadan break- fast at which members of the various religious 

groups talked about the significance of fasting. Finally, members of the Atlanta 

World Pilgrims, an interfaith group that takes religious leaders and scholars of 

different faiths on trips around the world, came to Oglethorpe to speak about a 

recent trip to the Middle East. This has been a great semester for the Interfaith 

Council and it looks forward to many more.

levvish Student Union 



^ 



The Jewish Student Union, now in its second year on Oglethorpe's 

campus, is blossoming. After a successftil inaugural year, the Jewish 

population has doubled, enabling a greater range of events. The year 

started out with High Holiday services with other local universities; 

shortly afterwards, Oglethorpe saw its first sukkah built as we 
celebrated the holiday of Sukkot. The highlight of the semester was 

our Shabbat dinner which garnered student, faculty and staff 

participation. The Second Annual Hanukkah Jewbilee was our final 

event and a great success with both Jewish and non-Jewish attendees. 

We are looking forward immensely to next semester with Passover, 

Purim and other great events.

University Singers 




Oglethorpe University Singers is the primary musical organization at 

Oglethorpe University. The ensemble provides for the study and 

performance of significant choral literature within the liberal arts 

context of the University and is open to students of all disciplines. The 

mixed-voice concert choir of approximately thirty-five voices, under the 

direction of Dr. W. Irwin Ray, is in constant demand for performances 

in the community and often obliges. 

The members of University Singers rehearse three hours each week and 

for their labor receive one hour academic credit and the pleasure of the 

activity itself. Their repertoire includes sacred and secular Hterature, 

both accompanied and unaccompanied, ranging from the fifteenth 

century to the present. It is likely not untrue to state that every member 

of University Singers, past and present, departs at the end of each year 

with some feeling of satisfaction in the work accompanied and the 

music created.

known to speak at meetings on topics that they find to be of personal 

interest. Members of the Thalian Society also travel to other 

universities within the state to listen to speakers. We encourage our 

members to work diligently on papers that are submitted to 

conventions across the nation. Through this process, Thalians hope to 

improve the level of scholarship amongst our members and fellow 

schoolmates.

Alpha Phi Qnega

Alpha Phi Omega is a National Co-ed Leadership and Service 

Organization based on the Scout Oath and Law. The Oglethorpe 

Chapter, the Mu Mu , began at Oglethorpe University in February 

1958 and was re-chartered in 1976. Since then, we've been one of the 

largest organizations dedicated to serving the school, the community, 

the nation, and out organization an all-inclusive collegiate fraternity. 

Alpha Phi Omega is committed to being the foremost student-run 

organization in developing lifelong leaders, instilling lasting 

friendships, and fostering a lifetime of service to all people. We do over 

40 projects every semester, and have accumulated an average of over 

1000 a year. Some of out major projects include: Trick or Treat in 

Traer, Red Cross, American Cancer Society, MedShare, ushering 

around campus. Goodwill, and much more. 




112 



Alpha Sigma Tau 




The sisters of Alpha Sigma Tau stay busy throughout the year with 
chapter business, social activities, sisterhoods, philanthropy work, and 

having fun! The Delta Pi chapter has grown considerably since its 
arrival at Oglethorpe in 2000. AST sisters dedicate time and effort to 

working with philanthropies like the Pine Mountain Settlement 

School, Habitat for Humanity, the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 

Awareness Fund, and the Boys and Girls club of Atlanta. On campus, 

AST holds a pink baked goods sale every October during Pink Week to 

raise money for breast cancer awareness. Each year, the sisters get 

together for the New Member Retreat to strengthen old bonds and 

form new ones. The ideals of Alpha Sigma Tau are embodied in its 

open motto: active, self-reliant, and trustworthy. 



113 



Chi Omega 



To value the talents of women, to encourage them to realizing their 

greatest potential - These are the principles upon which Chi Omega 

was founded in 1895 at the University of Arkansas. Today, Chi Omega 

is the largest womens fraternal organization in the world with 300,000 

initiates and 169 collegiate chapters. Since its beginining, Chi Omega 

has nurtured its members by providing them with unique opportunities 

in leadership, in scholarship, and in life-long friendship. Ours is a 

distinguished history and our most vital role has been the preparation 

of young women to achieve their highest possible aspirations. 

Now over a century later, these founding principles are just as relevant. 

Chi Omega Fraternity was founded at a time when women were just 

becoming visible on our nation's university campuses. These early 

collegiate women were destined not only to manage home and family, 

but they would establish a foothold as leaders in the community and the 

business world.

Sigma Sigma Sigma 




Once long ago, in a far away town in Virginia lived eight beautifiil 

ladies who stumbled upon the creation called the S.S.S. club. This club 

was not just for anybody but only for the most upstanding and virtuous 

women who went to Longwood College. Then on the fateful day of 

April 20, 1898, these eight women created what is known today as a 

sorority. 

Twenty years ago, this now blooming violet organization found its way 

to Oglethorpe's campus. But these modern day members of the S.S.S. 

club could not be contained to the Oglethorpe Bubble; instead, they 

travel to visit ill children limited to their hospital walls. Whether to 

make a quick art project with them or embark on a Mardi Gras Parade, 

Sigmas were able to do and accomplish much more to children who 

rarely saw happiness.

Chi Phi 



The Chi Phi Fraternity is a values-based organization founded on the 

basis of Truth, Honor, and Personal Integrity. These are timeless 

values, which guide the fundamental purposes of the Fraternity. Today, 

our crest and their badge are public symbols for the brothers of Chi Phi, 

symbols that are instantly recognizable to members, but still 

appropriately obscure to outsiders. They communicate our proud 

history without overt bragging. 
Covert symbols and deeply rooted fundamentals of virtue and truth, 
honor, and integrity, bind us together in a brotherhood that is strong 

and timeless. 




116 



Delta Sigma Phi 




The Alpha Nu Chapter of the Delta Sigma Phi Fraternity was 

originally founded in 1835 in MiUedgeville, GA, 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 ever be convinced of the sincerity of our 

purpose.

Kappa Alpha 



The Kappa Alpha Order was founded on December 21, 1865, at what is 
now Washington and Lee University. The mission of KA is to create a 

lifetime of experience, which centers on reverence to God, duty, honor, 

character, and gentlemanly conduct as inspired by Robert E. Lee, our 

spiritual founder. Parties have ranged in theme from Apocalypse Now 

to Mardi Gras. KA is an active participant in Greek Week and in the 

Inter-fraternity Council.

Sigma Alpha Epsilon 




SAE is North America's largest social fraternity with more than 280,000 
initiated members. Fraternal symbols include the lion, the phoenix, 
Minerva, and the fleur-de-lis. Sigma Alpha Epsilon was the first 
fraternity to establish a national headquarters (1929), a national 
Leadership School (1935), a national Men's Health Issues Committee 
(1980), and a career-development program entitled the Leading Edge 
(1990). Currently, the Fraternity offers a comprehensive member- 
education program called The True Gentleman Initiative. Sigma 
Alpha Epsilon at Oglethorpe strives to promote the highest levels of 
character, scholarship, and leadership, from its members and to serve as 
a prime example of the positive aspects of Greek life.

Hello faithful reader, 

I hope you are enjoying perusing the history of this wonderful 
school and all of its memories. I for one can tell you that the 
staff and I had an incredible time documenting them. This year 
was fiilled with a whirlwind of ups and downs, but in the end 
what matters is, we published a book that can stand the test of 
time and one that I will be infinitely proud of. This is a landmark 
year for the Yamacraw - we have now reached our 75th 
volume!! The Yamacraw has a long-standing history with 
Oglethorpe, and I am immensely honored to bring another 
year's events into OU's timeline. 

I hope that you will enjoy this tangible memory for years to 
come and let it always bring a sweet smile to your face. 

And here's to 75 more! 

Sincerely, 
Dallas Greene 
Editor-in-Chief
