Hope for the future was all that remained 
after a year of mourning and change. These 
tragedies and events brought us together, forcing 
us to become one. 

We returned to our apartments, dorms and 
classes with a touch of weariness. At the end of 

the summer we watched University President Dale 

Lick resign, forcing the administration to find an 
interim president. It was announced that former 

president Bernie Sliger would act as president until 

a replacement was chosen. 

As we once joined to heal, we later joined 

in celebration. We saw tradition and expansion as 

the Magnetic Lab opened, the twentieth 

anniversary of Mainstage performances began and 

construction continued on Doak Campbell 


Together we camped outside of the Dick 
Howser Stadium ticket booth for days in order to 

get football tickets to the game against Miami, 

billed as the Game of the Century.

(Continued from page 3) 
We intensely watched the first win over 

Miami in three football seasons. That game also 

made winners out of the fortunate students who 

were able to get tickets. Due to the new athletic 

fee thousands of students were left with only a 

useless coupon after all student tickets were 

distributed. Whether we endured the October 

heat to see the game live at Doak Campbell or 

watched at home from our couches, for one 

weekend we were the happiest people in the 


One issue that united us was the athletic 

fee that was added into tuition. Following ticket 

distribution for the Miami game students, with 

the support of the Student Government 

Association, protested the fee. 

We learned that, together, things were 

possible. Although we were named the number 

one party school in the nation, we kept our 

priorities in perspective. The fall brought us 

together; we worked to make the AIDS quilt's 

visit a success and Stop Rape Week raised 

awareness on campus. 

In our world, where things 

add up quickly, we have found that 

we are not all alone. Working together is the 

solution and the sum of the parts is greater than the

quest to bring the NAMES Project/AIDS Memorial Quilt 
to the community. The Student Government Association 
jumped in and furnished the display fee of $3,500. Once 
the financial committment was met, Golden Key, 
Thagard Student Health Center and Big Bend Cares 
continued the long application process which made it 
possible for the Quilt to make its appearance at the 
Tallahassee/Leon County Civic Center. 

"The students were so determined to bring it 
here," Mary Penney, Co-Chairperson from Thagard 
Student Health Center said. "We were going to do 
whatever it took." 

As mandated by the NAMES Project, a central 


planning committee was established to choose the Host 
Committee for the event. Interviews were held and a 
committee of 18 members was chosen to coordinate the 
event. Each committee was led by a student and 
community leader to ensure both avenues would be 
covered. Volunteers from around the area came together 
to help make the dream a reality. 

"It was the most emotional experience I've ever 
been through," Tracy Henningfeld said. "I noticed how 
close to home this disease really was. Through my 
volunteer work, I felt as though I was really making a 
difference. It was refreshing to see people come together 
and help one another." 

The NAMES Project began in 1987 when Cleve 
Jones and fellow San Franciscans saw the need for public 
awareness about the pain and suffering connected with the 
disease. The first display of the Quilt in its entirety was in 
October of the same year in Washington, D.C. It consisted 
of 2,000 panels. Its second full appearance was in 1992. It 
measured approximately 15 football fields and housed 
over 22,000 panels from worldwide donors. The 29 ton 
Quilt would never be shown in its entirety again due to 
its enormous size. 

Each panel symbolized the victim's lives through 
the eyes of relatives, friends and lovers. Anger, fear, 
frustration and joy was depicted on each with the aid of 
certain materials such as lace, leather, taffeta, buttons, 
flags, poems, songs, articles of clothing, human hair, love 
letters, teddy bears and favorite photos. 

"It was interesting to see a comparison between 
old and new panels," Henningfeld said. "Before there was 
just a name, now there was a tribute with memorabilia. 
AIDS has finally become more 'acceptable' and now the 
people who have died can 
be remembered with the 
respect they deserve." 

Among the 600 
display panels were

Bergalis and Ryan White. Forty-one panels were dedicated

"I consider myself very lucky to have a

people to be careful so other families wouldn't be 
put through this amount of grief . I pray that we 
get a grip on this situation as soon as possible, " 
volunteer Tina Induisi said. 

After the departure of the Quilt, there 
was an abundance of work left for the Host 
Committee to complete. Financial forms, 
publicity tactics, updated volunteer 
information lists and other detailed records were 
completed and sent to the home office. 

It was a very exacting process, 
Penney said. "We had to make sure all of the 
bases were covered and the information was 
current when we sent it to the office. The key to 
the success of the NAMES Project is their 
dedication and organization." 

This project touched more than just 
the campus, it touched the entire community. 

"It brought an increased awareness in 
our rather small community," Co-Chairperson 
Matthew Shepherd said. "We touched a lot of 
lives that weekend. Because of this project, a 
new sense of compassion was brought to

Homecoming is a festive 
time for all... 

From the lights of the carnival to the soggy playing field of the 
game, Homecoming gave a sense of tradition, both new and old. Not only 
was this a time for the alumni to visit their old memories but it was also 
their opportunity to see new ones made. 

Homecoming was a time for all to enjoy and for the tradition of 
the University to shine through. However, for anyone familiar with the 
traditions of Homecoming week, it was evident that change accompanied 
every aspect. 

The week started off with the Homecoming carnival held on the 
intramural fields. Students, alumni and the public came to enjoy carnival 
rides and participate in such events as karoake and sumo wrestling. 
Different vendors sold everything from fake 
tattoos to buttons with personalized 

"We got tattoos on our ankles and 
buttons with our pictures on them," Kim 
Kibler, a nursing major, said. "Jen and I got 
a kick out of the tattoos." 

During the week, there was also 
the rededication of Jennie Murphree Hall, 
a campus residence hall that underwent a 
two-year renovation in which the interior 
was completely gutted and modernized. 

Another part of the festivities 
included the traditional Homecoming 
parade in which all campus organizations 
were invited to participate. 

The Greek organizations 
participating in Homecoming events were 
paired into different groups. The pairings 
entered a float and banner into competition 
and the results were some of the most 
creative and artistic work seen. With the Homecoming theme "It's A 
Hit," students came up with a wide range of ideas. 

Greek winners in the float competition were the Sigma Nu and 
Gamma Phi Beta pairing and the winners in the banner competition were 
the Phi Kappa Tau, Delta Zeta and Alpha Phi Alpha pairing. 

Non-Greek winners of the float competition included 
Alpha Kappa Psi who took first place, the College Republicans who 
captured second place and the United Latin Society who received third 

Not only were these organizations involved in the float and 


banner competitons, there was also a skit competition. Pairings prepared 
a skit to compete against the other campus sororities and fraternities. 
Winners in the skit competition were the Lambda Chi Alpha and Kappa 
Delta pairing. 

As a whole, the three categories: float, banner and skit, all played 
a part in showing the spirit of the University and the diversity among 

Following the Homecoming parade and activities was the much 
anticipated Pow Wow event. Held at the Tallahassee/Leon County Civic 
Center, the University pep rally featured the crowning of Matt Frier as 
Chief and Joy Staple as Princess. 

"I was very surprised when they called my name," Princess Joy 
Staple said. "I couldn't think of a better 
way to end a wonderful week. It was like 
ending my four years with a bang." 

Although the crowning of Chief and 
Princess was a tradition at the University, 
the Greek domination of Homecoming 
elections was different than what had come 
to be expected from previous years. Matt 
Frier changed all of that when he became 
the first Seminole football player to be 
crowned Chief. 

In fact, voters at the Leach Center 
were surprised when Frier showed up to 
vote. One student who commented about 
his vote for Frier received a handshake and 
a slap on the back in appreciation. 

Frier's success during Homecoming 
stemmed from the support of his family and 

Head Coach Bobby Bowden, the 
University cheerleaders, the Golden Girls, the Marching Chiefs and the 
skit competition were also featured at Pow Wow along with the comedy 
of Allan Harvey and headliner Howie Mandel. 

Other Homecoming 

activities included a breakfast, a 
torch run from the Panama City 
campus to Doak Campbell Stadium 
and the thirteenth annual Reservation Run from the Broadcast Center 
to the Seminole Reservation. 

The traditional football game continued with the Seminoles

Although the weather was rainy and cold,

The weekend was tun for all. 
Following the game, Tallahassee merchants 
put on a downtown block party with good 
food, live music and a street dance for all to 

"As a Homecoming representative, I 
saw all of the hard work and dedication 
that went into Homecoming and the building 
of the floats, the designing of the banners 
and the skit practices," Laura Webb, the Delta 
Zeta Homecoming representative, said. "It's 


a lot of hard work but in the end it pays off." 

Homecoming activities came to a close 
with the Homecoming Galla. This event was 
open to all Saturday evening at the Tallahassee/ 
Leon County Civic Center. 

Awards for Homecoming were given 
and there was food and entertainment for 
everyone who attended. This new tradition 
added to the excitement and entertainment. 

The overall winner o{ Homecoming 
was presented to the SN and r<f>B pairing. 

Overall, Homecoming was a week full 
of the remembrance of old traditions and the 
beginning of new ones.

it's a world traveler." 

It was not the 
American Express Card, 
nor was it any sort of

and true, practical and 
dependable, fashionable, 
yet sturdy, backpack. 
Around campus, it was 
impossible not to notice 
how abundant it was. 

The backpack served 
as a keeper for the hectic 
and often unorganized life 
of the college student. 
Students who carried one

Would be prisoners in a land 
of confusion, lost keys and

With so many colors 
and styles to choose from, 
seeing two identical backpacks was quite rare. Even if the 
brand and color were identical, something usually existed 
to set it apart from all of the rest. The backpack served as 
sort of a window to the soul. Creative students decorated 
theirs with artwork and doodles, while other students 
simply let pins and buttons do all of the talking. It was 
possible to learn something about another person just by 
checking out their backpack. 

Some students purchased the basic, generic 
backpack for a very low price, while others went all out and 
bought the heavy duty, name brand, leather one. One of 
the most unique backpacks seen around campus was the 
one with the built-in clock. Characters from Disney and

Looney Toons popped up on backpacks throughout the 

Cartoons were not the only ways to express an 
interest. Sports fans had no trouble finding their favorite 
embroidered logo or team colors on a backpack. However, 
the most popular team logo seen was that of the 
University's own Seminoles. 

Besides making a fashion statement, backpacks 
had many practical uses as well. They were loaded with 
pockets, pouches, zippers and many other secret 
compartments. With all of the books and materials 
students had to carry around, having the extra storage 
space helped. 

"I keep pens and pencils, tissues, money, keys and 
my glasses in the extra pouch on my backpack," Renee 
Green said. "All of my books and paper go in the main 

Although the backpack was made to be worn 
around both shoulders, the majority of students favored 
one side to carry it on. Bicycle owners, however, were 
thankful for the two straps. 

"When I ride my bicycle to class, I just put 
my backpack on both shoulders," Heather Rooney 
said, "and I don't have to worry about it falling 

Backpacks were not only used at the University. 
They were often spotted at airports. Travelers stashed 
magazines, candy, purses and pillows in them to carry on 
the plane. Campers used them for carrying tents, sleeping 
bags, food and utensils. People who lived in the city often 
took their backpacks on the bus or train and on shopping 
trips because they were more convenient than several 
shopping bags. 

A nice little invention, the backpack served 
different people's needs 
worldwide. Perhaps the 
most appreciative of the 
invention of the 
backpack, though, was the tired student who needed

Seminoles claim in-state 
bragging rights from rivals 


Adrenaline. The 
thousands of chanting fans 
felt it. The coaches felt it. 
The players felt it - driving 
them, pushing them to 
their highest intensity level 
of the season. The fans 
made sure everyone around 
them sensed the same 
feeling of anticipation 
when they cheered and 
chanted during pre-game. 

When the Florida 
State Seminoles football 
team took on the Florida 
Gators, the Miami 
Hurricanes or the new 
rival, the Notre Dame 
Fighting Irish, the result 
was explosive, hard hitting, 
"in your face" football. 
These three teams were not 
just schools on the 
schedule, there was much 
more on the line than just 
the win. It was a 

Photo by Vanessa Crockett feeling and an attitude that 
fans had. There was also a "right" that came with winning 
a rivalry game. 

That "right" was being able to tell friends who 
cheered for the opposing side. There were also those 
family members that lived in a different part of the state or 
country and therefore felt a loyalty to another mascot. 
Students enjoyed telling others that graduated from their 
high schools that the Seminoles had won the "right" to 
call themselves State and National Champions. 

"Having a rival gives you bragging rights," 
linebacker Ken Alexander said. "From the time I've been 
here, I haven't had that chance; hopefully, that will 
change this year." 

If one were to play a game of word association 
with a FSU football fan and mention rivalry, one 
would likely hear one or the other: Gators or 
Hurricanes. For many, the Gators brought out the 
animosity due to the longtime tradition but mention 
Miami and some Seminoles eyes narrowed and faces 

"I'm from Clearwater, so for me, you're either a 
Seminole or a Gator," offensive tackle Greg Frey said. 
"When I go home, I hear about it for a year or I hear how 
lucky we were this time. It's a matter of respect." 

When the Miami Hurricanes blew into Doak 
Campbell Stadium to take on Charlie Ward and his aerial 
attack offense, one could see the sparks flying. For many, 
this became a grudge match compared to no other. 

"To beat Miami at home was the best graduation 
present I could have gotten this season," senior Shannon 
Moore said after the Seminoles 28-10 defeat of the 

The entire Tallahassee community showed their 
competitive spirit when Miami came to town. Thousands 
of students camped out to claim their tickets, t-shirt 
vendors lined the streets, cars became moving billboards 
painted with shoe polish and thousands of desperate 
people held signs begging for tickets. It was a game to 

"My father is a die hard Cane. The phone call to 
him in Miami after we beat them was the best call I made 
all year," senior Miguel Fernandez said. 

The dawn of a new rivalry began in the fall with 
a school deeply embedded in football history and 
tradition. The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame took on the 
Seminoles for the first time, bringing anticipation for 
many great future

hunger in the players, parents, coaches, alumni and fans. 
Whether it was Florida, Miami or even Notre Dame, the 
Seminoles looked to satisfy.

Sometimes it's found in the 
most unexpected places 


As Gilchrist residents got settled into their rooms 
and classes, Larry Williams and Earnestine Henry made the 
first attempt to make everyone feel at home. For many 
homesick students, the friendly smiles and compassionate 
gestures of the two were a real comfort. Whether it was a 
simple "hello" every morning or the start of a good friendship, 
everyone in Gilchrist encountered the genuine good cheer of 
Larry and Earnestine. The two were residence hall 
maintenance workers who felt that their jobs included a great 
deal more than making sure everything was clean and running. 

"The other day I saw a girl outside her door in the 
hall crying," Earnestine said as she shook her head. " She said 
she hated it here at college. She was homesick. I talked to 
her and I prayed for her. It hurts me to see them hurting. I 
like everyone to he happy. I know they miss home and they 
have someone here." 

In between sc nibbing floors or cleaning the restrooms 
Earnestine could be found socializing with the girls who lived 
on her assigned floors. Many girls looked to her for friendship 
as well as guidance. Her kind face seemed to attract all who 
had a problem or just wanted to talk to someone. 

"Earnestine is a good-hearted woman and a hard 
working lady," junior Jennifer Thomason said. " She aways 
took the time to say hello. She was very genuine but she also 
stuck to her professional role." 

Larry and Earnestine said they enjoyed getting to 
know the residents during the year. It seemed an instinctive 
part of their jobs to get involved with the students and talk 
to them everyday. To them, each student had a certain 
characteristic that made them unique. Many students that 
moved out of Gilchrist Residence Hall each semester left an 
impression on Larry and Earnestine that lasted a lifetime. 

"There was one guy who lived here who I called 
Howard Cosell, after the sports commentator," Larry said. 

"He knew absolutely 
everything about any sport. 
He loved to talk about it. He 

By Jennifer Wiand 

was amazing. 
Larry and Earnestine did not seem to mind the 
messes that residents left around the bathrooms and in the 
halls after the weekends. 

"It doesn't bother me," Larry said. "Kids will 
be kids." 

Larry said he could even tell which male 
resident left which mess. He said he enjoyed getting to 
know the different types of guys who lived on his floor. 
The guys seemed to really enjoy Larry as well. 

"Larry's an all-around great guy," second floor 
residence assistant Roger Kostiw said. " Everyone sees 
Larry as a friend." 

Both Larry and Earnestine said they worried 
about the students as they adjusted to life without 
parents and guardians. 

"I tell my boys at home that the girls at Gilchrist 
are mine," Earnstine said. "They are my girls and I just 
love them." 

Larry said he considered students' weekend 
drinking as a stress reliever a potential problem. 

"A lot more students are drinking under age. 
As long as they do so in moderation and don't drive it's 
ok," Larry said. " I know from personal experience that 
drinking and driving can get you into trouble." 

Larry and Earnestine said they learned a lot 
about the students just by watching and observing 
them. According to them, the students were more 
advantaged and had more possessions than previous 
years. With all of the radios, microwaves, televisions 
and other electronic devices, it seemed the residents 
had all the comforts of home. 

"It used to be that students mostly brought 
luggage and books. Now they make room for the 
Nintendo set," Larry said. "As long as it makes for a 
more comfortable atmosphere to study in, that's o.k." 

Dealing with the messes, debris and other 
negligence of students could be nerve-racking for some 
people, especially the maintenance workers who saw it 
everyday. Larry and Earnestine seemed to accept all the 
students for who and what they were. 

"Gilchrist Hall is very old and can seem dismal 
at times. Yet Larry and Earnestine make everything 
seem brighter," sophomore Diedre Feely said. "They 
make everyone feel at home."

or obviously were suffering from the curse," senior "au 
naturale" Tifanny Mordini said. 

Mordini described the curse as punishment. 
Three weeks after someone picked a fabulous color at the 
salon everyone could see that they were being punished 
with grotesquely dark roots springing from their scalp. 
And if the curse did not punish fakers enough, incriminating 
photos surely did. 

"One weekend when I went home, I found a 

picture of my mom with a frosted blonde afro," Toshia 
Harper said. "She normally had straight, brown hair. She 
said she was pretty cool then but I couldn't help but 

Some students had families which were ultra 
conservative in the 1970's and could not seem to find any 
blackmail pictures. 

A personal survey could be conducted daily. At 
the Union on any Wed., the rainbow assortment of Life 
Saver-colored hairdos could be seen blooming on the stairs 
of Moore Auditorium. And at any local gym, brown, 
bulging biceps and suntanned, blondes could be spotted in 
the dead of Tallahassee's dreary winters. 

Being a slave to fashion did not come cheaply 
either. Acrylic nails could cost as much as $35 for a set and 
had to be filled at least every two weeks for $15. Over a 
year's time, acrylic nails could cost a faker $425! 

The hair coloring industry made a fortune off 
victims who paid from $25 to $50 initially. Necessary 
touch ups were needed every eight weeks or so depending 
on the color and the touch ups could cost as much as the 
original coloring. It did not take a mathematician to 
calculate the big dollar signs in image enhancing tactics. 

"Money is no object when it comes to looking as 
good as I possibly can," sophomore Dee Jackson said. "I do 
not want a $5 haircut because I am a firm believer that you 
get what you pay for." 

Certainly, the idea of faking it was not a new one 
and all efforts to fake it were not disasters. Marilyn 
Monroe was a prime example of a mousy Midwesterner 
gone Hollywood, as her hair changed from brunette to 

It was possible to make millions off of 
charlatan images in the 1990's. Some superstars faking 
it included Andre Agassi, 
Madonna and even 
RuPaul, the seven-foot tall, 
platinum blonde transsexual pop star. 

The theme of the decade could have been said by 
Andre Agassi, "Image is everything."

Faking It 25 


Pike's probation was extended three 
more years by the University but they 


They were back and the news shook the campus. 
Although denied a return to campus by both the 
Interfraternity Council and the University administrators, Pi 
Kappa Alpha decided to come back with or without 
University recognition. 

The Delta Lambda Chapter of nKA had their 
charter revoked in 1988 when members refused to cooperate 
with the police investigation that followed the gang rape of 
an 1 8-year-old student. At the FIKA fraternity house, the girl 
was given alcohol and then raped by several fraternity 
members. She was then taken to another fraternity house 
and dropped in their foyer, after members had painted 
demoralizing words and another fraternity's symbols on her 

When the police questioned nKA brothers, the 
entire fraternity refused to cooperate. Their refusal to 
cooperate with the police prompted the University to kick 
the fraternity off campus for five years and prompted their 
national office to revoke their charter. 

The fraternity was denied a return to campus 
because of an unofficial nKA group, the Firemen's Club, 
which operated during the term of the fraternity's 

The University gave the chapter an additional 
three year suspension because the alumni association 
violated the terms of the original suspension by assisting in 
the creation of the illegal underground club made up of nKA 

Even though the University deemed this a 
reasonable punishment, the nKA did not. The fraternity's 
newly colonized members, local alumni and national office 
were ready to challenge University authorities. 

"We feel we were unfairly denied recognition by the 
University review committee and the Interfraternity 

Council. We are going 
to reco Ionize the 
chapter," Bob Hall, 
president of nKA 's local alumni chapter, said. 

Pi Kappa Alpha met with the Panhellenic 
Association to discuss possible sorority involvement with the 

By Dody Perry 

Since the fraternity was not recognized by the 
University, sororities refused to have social functions with 
nKA or mix with them in any way. 

"We flat out told them we would not support 
them. We have no intention of assisting them in any way, 
shape or form," Panhellenic President Julie Dunn said. 

The community seemed wary of the fraternity's 
return due to the fresh memory of the student's rape. It 
made various Tallahassee women's groups angry, 
concerned and frustrated. 

"( Phe unofficial group) shows that they have no 
respect for women in this community... they don't have 
the ability to follow rules," Lynn Rosenthal, executive 
director of the Refuge House, said. 

Starting an unwelcome colony on a campus was 
not a common occurrence for nKA fraternity. In fact, it 
has never happened according to the nKA National 
Director of Expansion Stevan Vincent. 

"We have never done this before," Vincent said. 
"We have never gone to a university without approval. 
This is a special case... We feel that nKA can have a 
positive impact on FSU. We owe it to the alumni and the 
students who contacted us to get a colony." 

The Pikes were back and they were trying to 
prove that they were not the same guys that were here five 
years ago. The National nKA fraternity and the Alumni 
AA Chapter wanted a colony started on campus with or 
without the approval of the University. 

The colony had several requirements to meet 
before they could receive their charter again. The 
requirements were the toughest on campus including a 
combined 3.0 GPA and 60 hours of community service per 
member. This accounted for a combined total of 3 500 man 
hours of community service. 

"We are looking for scholars, leaders, and most 
importantly, gentlemen. Every person that wears the Pike 
letters will be watched, from the president to members, 
and it is important that the people we rush represent the 
three qualities that we demand," Kent Braughman, 
President of the nKA colony said. "All we are asking for 
is a chance to prove ourselves."

Ducks, romance, picnics and 
scholarly pursuits all at...

Lake Ella was one 
of the many local spots 
where students went for 
fun, relaxation or whatever 
else entered their minds. 

Located on North 
Monroe Street, this 
particular body of water 
served as a fairly pleasant 
tourist attraction. 

With the fountain as 
its centerpiece, Lake Ella 
was surrounded by ducks 
being fed by children, 
squirrels that ran up and 
down the trees and a 
romantic gazebo. 

Picnics were very 
common at Lake Ella 
because of the setting and 
scenery of the environment. 
Quite a few couples took 
advantage of the lake's late 
night ambience for 
romantic reasons.

transformed Lake Ella into a lover's lane. Some lovebirds 
relished taking moonlit strolls or snuggling togeth er on the 
park benches or in a vehicle. 

"A close male friend and I parked by the lake, 
looked at the bright stars through his sunroof anc drank 
together," biology major Christie Jones said. 

Other students, however, felt a little different 
towards the lake's romantic atmosphere. Since the 
lake was situated just off one of Tallahassee's busiest 
streets, the clamor of traffic could annoy romantic 

"It's just not as romantic or important as th*y 
claim it to be," senior Derrick Brown said. 

Lake Ella was not only a place for couples, single 
students also found worthwhile activities to do. The 
American Cancer Society Move - Along - Athon was held 
on Oct. 23 at the lake. This event was for anyone willing 
to walk, jog, run, roller blade or wheelchair around the lake 
in memory of a loved one or a friend. 

Many University students participated in this 
event by obtaining donations from peers and companies. 
The Move - Along - Athon was a tremendous success for 
the volunteers and for the American Cancer Society. 

" I felt like I did my part as a community member 
of Tallahassee and a fellow student of the University for 
the Cancer Society," early childhood education major 
Sandra Borowiec said. 

Staying healthy and keeping in shape was one of 
the main concerns of students and Lake Ella provided the 
perfect setting. Many students went there for exercise, 
such as walking or jogging around the lake. 

Being outside was a welcome change after 
being cooped up in a classroom for several hours and 
University students enjoyed having someplace other 
than the gym to exercise. 

"Unlike my first impression, which was that 
Lake Ella is just a make-out spot, I learned that it 
could be a place to walk around and talk with your 
friends," freshman Tiffany Duhart said. 

After classes, students enjoyed hanging out with 
their friends or studying at the lake. Picnic tables and 
large, sprawling oak trees offered a more relaxed atmosphere 
than Strozier Library. 

"I grew up in Tallahasse. I spent many summer 
afternoons there with my family," junior Ann Kemper 
said. "The older I got the

place to study or just to 

Whether it was a place to socialize with friends, 
enjoy the environment, jog a mile or two, volunteer for 
activities or spend quality time with a loved one, Lake 
Ella proved to be the perfect get away spot for students 
at the University.

Outlandish scenarios for hours on 
end! Some students found that 
they just couldn't live without 


Amnesia . Marryingyour long lostbrother who was your 
best friend's ex-husband. Discovering you had a twin sister who 
was kidnapped by terrorists at birth and raised in the jungles of San 
Cristobal. A lavish wedding attended by all of the prominent 
citizens of Salem, interrupted by the bride's dead husband. A 
medical intern who delivered twins to an unwed mother in a canoe . 
Coming back to life six times , on three different shows . 

Did any of these scenarios sound familiar? Chances 
were, they did. 

For daytime soap opera fanatics, this was just the 
beginning. Some students shuffled around their work and 
class schedules just so they could catch a glimpse of their 
favorite stars at work. 

For others, video recorders were set hours in 
advance for the day's episode. At the end of a long day, 
students could come home and watch their favorite star- 
crossed lovers cross paths once again. 

"It's amazing how frustrating it is to watch these 
things. Sometimes you just want to scream at the TV and tell 
them how ridiculous they're being," senior Maria Fulgieri 

Mystery, intrigue and most importantly, romance, 
drew young men and women in, for at least an hour a 

"It's a nice escape after a long day," junior Tracy 
Hammer said. "You look at some of these people and think 
' I wish I had clothes like that' or 'I want my wedding to be 
that perfect.'" 

The audiences of these dramas were predominantly 
female, however, an occasional conversation in class was 
started by a conspicuous male seated in the back row. 

" A guy can't openly admit that he's a soap fan or 
he'll get criticized. It certainly has advantages though. It's a 

great way to meet girls. At 
least you know you'll 
potentially have 
something in common 
with them," a college male who wished to remain anonymous

action. Personal appearances around the country gave 
fans the opportunity to rub elbows with their heroes and 

"About a year ago, I saw Micheal O'Leary 
(formerly Dr. Rick Bauer ol Guiding Light) at the 
Tallahassee Mall with a friend of mine. He was so nice and 
answered all of our questions. We even got our pictures 
taken with him and an autograph. It was great," Jamie 
Cichon said. 

1 rendy soap opera magazines made it possible for 
viewers to keep on top of current story lines and plot 

" Soap Opera Digest and Soap Opera Weekly 
come in handy when I fall behind on my soaps. I should 
own stock in them by now. Hopefully the entire 
collection will be worth something one day," senior Kim 
Kappes said. 

Daytime soaps also made a contribution to 
current issues; they were not just a fantasy world of glitz 
and glamour. 

"Margo's rape on As the World Turns was the 
most compelling story I've ever seen," Fulgieri said. "The 
writing and acting were very real and I think it made 
people realize the trauma a victim goes through after such 
a heinous crime." 

Date and gang rapes, homelessness, safe sex and 
AIDS were some of the hot topics which soaps tackled. 

Nighttime soaps also made a comeback with the 
Fox Network's Melrose Place and Beverly hiills 902 1 0. Both 
shows touched on several sensitive issues like their 
daytime counterparts. 

Beverly Hills 90210 specifically addressed a 
younger audience since the entire cast recently entered 
college. The show spotlighted teen pregnancy, religious 
persecution and drug use. On Melrose Place, where the 
characters were about five years the senior of the 90210 
cast, they tackled alcoholism, adultery, gays in the 
military and prostitution. 

Whether you were a fan or not, soap operas made 
their mark on the television world.

You needed to do it. 
You could not live without 
it. Over and over, 
religiously, it was done. It 
was an addiction. 

For some it was food, 
for others it was exercise, 
for all it was something that 
they were addicted to and 
needed on a regular basis. 

Deprivation of 
someone's addiction 
sometimes elicited a 
physiological response. 

"I get headaches if I 
don't drink at least one cup 
of coffee every day," junior 
Dehra Stracy said. 

People were mocked 
for their addictions. They 
were called compulsive, 
sometimes they were 
labeled obsessive, but these 
addictions were not of the 
stereotypical nature. 

"There is a major 
difference between 

disorder, commonly referred to as OCD, and addictive or 
compulsive behavior," Student Counseling Center Clinical 
Director Rich Senecek said. "OCD involves ritualistic 
behavior, whereas an addiction or compulsion is something 
that one feels compelled to do but not in the same 
ritualistic manner each time." 

Some people's addictions had an adverse effect 
on their own bodies but others' addictions affected those 
around them. 

"My roommate thinks I'm crazy," sophomore Jen 
Fagan said. " I can't walk on my carpet if I think that it's

Getting caught up in the football spirit was almost 
inevitable at the University. Hours, sometimes days, were 
spent in ticket lines. Some students based their lives 
around games and drove for hours to see an away game. 
Still others stayed glued to their television sets on Saturday 
so as to see the highlight films over and over. 

"1 can't function without seeing the 'Noles play 
football each week (during the fall semester)," junior Jeff 
Gray said. "I suffer from withdrawal when we have a week 

A common addiction among college students 
was shopping. Students found that their shiny new credit 
cards facilitated this addiction. 

"I completely, wholeheartedly, believe in the buy 
now, pay later theory," senior Cathy McCorvey said. 
"Credit is a wonderful thing." 

Credit card companies themselves also aided in 
this charging frenzy. 

"It seems like every credit card company in the 
world has my address and wants to send me their card," 
McCorvey said. "I receive at least one credit card application 
per week in the mail." 

Not all addictions were bad ones. Craving 
chocolate was much less harmful than craving a cigarette 
or alcohol, especially on today's college campuses. 

"I don't drink obsessively, I've never done drugs 
and I don't eat meat, so when it comes to candy and 
caffeine, I'm all over it," 
senior Ann Killebrew 
said. "I feel that if those 
are my only addictions then I'm doing just fine." 

"I think if more people were addicted to the 
stairmaster instead of drugs, this world would be a much 
nicer place," junior Melissa Walters said.

Bringing experience to 


College was a place to express new found ideals and 
ideas, a place to learn from and about other people. It was also 
a place to experiment with friends, classes and the social 
scene. It was a time of discovery. 

However, for graduating seniors, that was all 
coming to an end. It was time to put everything learned to 
the real world test. It was time to intern. 

Student's priorities seemed to change over the 
course of a college career. When students began college, they 
were more concerned with taking the right professors and 
required classes. Beginning students were also more 
concerned with making friends and working a part time job 
in order to have enough money for going out on the 
weekends. However, when the years of college were over, 
the key word was experience. Education was wonderful but 
experience was required to have the advantage in the tough 
job market. 

"My internship has provided me with valuable 
insight into my industry. It has shown me the diversity of the 
areas that are available," Ginny Walgren, a hospitality 
administration major, said. 

In today's job market, experience was stressed more 
than ever and interning offered students the opportunity to 
work in their chosen fields. Participating in an internship 
experience allowed students to have the actual hands on 
experience of what they had studied and read about since 
they entered their majors. 

For many internship participants, the process 
began by talking to their advisor about internship locations, 
contacts and application information. 

In several departments on campus students were 
able to begin their search with the departmental bulletin 
board which posted current opportunities for majors. Some 
students were able to include an internship along with their 

classes while others 
were required to leave 
the area and immerse 
themselves into some 

Some internship lead directly into employment while 
others gave students lifelong contacts that could lead them to

promising job opportunities. 

With some internships there also came a 
minimum number of hours that the student had to register 
for within their college. The hours ranged from one to 1 2, 
with 12 registered hours equaling 40 hours of work each 

Although interim reports, along with a final 
report, were required from some of the students, there was 
much more to be gained from the internship itself. An 
internship was a time to work with professionals and make 
contacts in the student's chosen field in order to see the 
knowledge learned from books applied to real life 

"Employers are looking at more than a 
transcript," Dr. Barry Solomon, a professor in the College 
of Communication said. "They are looking for the ability 
to start on the job with training and career related 
experience. The best way is through the internship." 

Interning was also a time to insure the students 
of their interests and abilities to make it in their chosen 
fields of study. In every internship a student was able to 
decipher what areas of interest they chose to make their 
career choice. 

With many different job offerings, a student had 
the opportunity to explore different areas within a single 
field of study. There might have been an area that 
appealed to some students more than another and the 
only way to find exactly where they fit their niche was by 

"It was a good learning experience because I got 
to shadow professionals but I learned more about being a 
better person than just the average intern," Natalie 
Gilmer, a public relations major said. 

With the internship, students were able to gain 
the experience needed while meeting professionals 
within their field who could help them advance into the 
working world. Internships provided opportunities to 
students for further educational experience and helped 
ensure that they would enter the working world with 
valuable experience and a working enthusiasm for their 
newly chosen career.

These were the 
nicknames given to a 
generation of people 
ranging in age from 18 to 
29. Opinions of this 
particular generation 
varied. They were 
considered to he brats by 
some and victims of past 
generations by others. 

Although this 
generation included some 
high school students, a 
majority of the generation 
included college students 
and young adults starting

UMagazine show 
rejection for the label. 
"Generation X" was 
only one of several labels 

out in the job market. 

Born in the wake of the "babyboomers," they 
were a group "in search of themselves," according to 
Monica Collins, a writer for The Boston Herald. 

"They think they know what they want: family, 
financial success, a job they love. But they aren't sure how 
to achieve any of these goals," Collins said. 

Collins sympathetic point of view turned to 
aggravation in the end, wondering if "this generation just 
wants too much too soon." 

The criticisms that plagued this generation 
ranged from "symbolically slaying their parents" for the 
problems they faced to whining about "their Mcjobs" 

while "displaced steelworkers and loggers of the past 
decade who also labor in Mcjobs ( if they're lucky) but who 
have none of the hopes of becoming computer literate job 
applicants like the generation brought up on Nintendo." 

This argument was presented in the Tallahassee 
Democrat by University professor Dr. Neil Jumonville. He 
saw a lack of activity from this generation and asked for 
"better analysis, stronger intellectual quality, a greater 
sense of history, some humility about what they in turn 
might be able to accomplish in their lives and a greater 
sense of altruism, idealism and social commitment." 

The concerns of older generations challenged 
these young people to strive for more, to work harder. In 
looking at these requests, it was important to consider the 
concerns of the generation. 

Oliver Trager, editor of America's Children , 
wrote, "Recent studies suggest that America's children are 
caught in a cycle of rising crime, child abuse, alcoholism, 
drug abuse and suicide and are faced with sweeping 
changes in sexual standards. Additionally, evidence 
reveals that today's young people foresee a bleak future for 
themselves, this country and the world." 

Although this generation saw future problems, so 
did the many generations before them. Some of the 
criticisms toward today's youth may have been valid but it 
was important to remember that "children are the world's 
most valuable resource and its best hope for the future." 

Those words from John F. Kennedy, over a 
decade ago, still remained true. 

"The name Generation X symbolizes the 
uncertainty that our generation faces in the future. We 
have more problems than the generations before us and 
we're not sure how to face them," junior Erin Rooney said. 

So, as 
Jumonville said, 
"...around us at this 
moment we are 

witnessing a wave of the young beginning to lift its head 
and take stock of itself as an entity." 

It may have also been true that this generation 
was not so lost.

Do you come here often? You have the most gorgeous

Whether students were in the Leach Center, 
Strozier Library or in the bookstore, pick ups were every 
place people were. More obvious places included local bars 
such as Bullwinkles or the clubs like Metropolis which 
dominated the campus strip of Tennessee Street. It seemed 
that no matter where one was, someone in the close vicinity 
was getting the "moves made" on them.

So... what's your major? Where are you from? 
I bet you don't smile like that for just anyone. All my 

friends left, can you give me a ride home? I think we had a class 

together last spring. 

In many cases this somewhat harmless activity 
became a gift of humor from one person to another. This also 

forced some to be the brunt of laughter. Some pick ups 
resulted in later embarrassment on the part of the 
picker upper. Such incidents also gave the victim 

something to smile in reflection over when they would later 

see that person on campus.

Well, I do. 

People went to great lengths to perfect the ultimate 
pickup line. Sometimes, without considering that they could 
actually be humiliated, a person would try a pickup for other 
reasons. One common reason seemed to be a dare. A night 
out with friends sometimes paved the way for a dare, a dare 
that could either leave someone with a new friend or out in 
the cold. 

So. . .what's your major? Where are you from? 

Have I met you somewhere before? You're the kind of 
girl I would love for my mom to meet. You don't even need make- 
up. You're gorgeous just the way you are. 

One night at a club, junior Dave Keith found 
himself in such a predicament. 

"A friend of mine dared me to go up to this girl and 
say, 'Hi, my name is Lonely.' The girl just looked at me and 
said, 'Hi, I'm taken.' All I could do was walk away," Keith 

So. . .what's your major? Where are you from? 

You look great. But you would look better by my side. 

The 1984 blockbuster film "Top Gun" starring Tom 
Cruise and Kelly McGillis offered a memorable, if not 
somewhat fantastic, instance where a very public pickup 
actually worked. In the unforgettable scene, Cruise and his 
co-pilot (played by Anthony Edwards) sang the Righteous 
Brothers hit, "You've Lost that Lovin' Feelin' ," in a room full 
of people at the Officer's Club. 

So. . .what's your major? Where are you from? 

I would love to spend the rest of my life with you . 1 could 
make all your dreams come true . 

However, things did not always have a Hollywood 
ending. Very rarely did someone meet their Tom Cruise or 
Kelly McGillis in Poor Paul's, Po' Boys or history class. 
Those one in a million times that it did happen that way 
offered hope to those still searching for the right person. 

Most students found their significant other when 
they were least expecting it or in the most surprising 
places. And someone had to break the ice and make the first

Southgate Campus Centre offers 
students an alternative in dorm 


y i a n y students

nd close location of 
estaurants that 

he brick building fits 
in well with the 
luildings on campus, 
he parking garage was 
ocated behind the 
|ctual dormitory. 

"The location is 
great; I like it a lot," 
freshman Tim Wadsworth 
said, regarding Southgate 
Campus Centre. 

Southgate looked 
absolutely complete on 
that late August morning, 
nestled between the Sweet 
Shop and the Chi Omega 
sorority house. It was quite 
a change of scenery from 
the Phyrst bar that once 
stood on the same lot. 

The centre 
advertised luxury housing 
at its finest and included 
maid and linen service, 
game rooms, computer 
hook-ups, a parking garage, 
a full food court, retail 
shops and more. 

Southgate, however, 
was the center of 
controversy since it opened 
its doors. The bookstore, 
retail space, non alcoholic 
bar, basketball and 
volleyball courts were still under construction when the 
centre opened for residents. 

Developer for the project, Kent Deeb, filed for 
protection in federal bankruptcy court from creditors 
seeking almost $2 million in outstanding debts. Only a 
last ditch $550,000 effort from the project's rainy day funds 
allowed Southgate to purchase such necessities as shower 
curtains. The FBI and state comptroller's office later 
investigated aspects of the project's financing. 

At the beginning of the University's fall 
semester, Southgate stood at about a 58 percent occupancy 
rate, according to Director of Sales Ed Xanders. Within 
the next two months, occupancy rates increased and

almost 70 percent of the rooms were filled. In addition to 
the expected roommate difficulties, Xanders said he 
credited the Florida Clean Air Act with encouraging 
many of his new residents to make the move to Southgate. 

"It's amazing how many people are moving out of 
dorms because of the new statewide policy banning 
smoking in the rooms," Xanders said. "Our entire building 
is smoke-free except for the private residence rooms. We 
are a private facility and we're not governed by the 
Board of Regents so the Act had no effect on our 

Many residents were angered that the retail 
space was still not completed when they moved in. 

"There are supposed to be some extras that we 
don't have," resident Tara Thoman said. 

However, Xanders said he expected completion 
in the spring. 

"The retail space isn't going to be here for a 
while," Jessica Pova, chair of the social committee, said. 
"Maybe we shouldn't have had to pay as much since the 
amenities weren't all ready." 

Many residents chose to live at Southgate for 
security reasons. Southgate had security guards 24 hours a 
day and residents had to have their Southgate 
identification card to be admitted to the upper portions of 
the building. 

Visitors were to be accompanied by a resident at 
all times. There were also video monitors of the parking 
garage which were constantly monitored by security 

"The parking garage is nice," Pova said. "As a 
freshman, there is no place else that I could park that 
would be close to my 
housing. They 
thought the safety 
precautions through 
very well." 

Resident Terry Warner agreed. 

"Even though it's kind of a hassle, I really feel 
safe here," Warner said. 

Residents of Southgate said that communication

was a problem when the centre first opened and 
the management agreed that it had been a 
difficulty that needed to be improved. 

"At first there was really a problem 
with communication," Director of Residents 
Allison Johns said. "But now that residents 
know who to complain to, communication has 
opened up. The management is really trying to 
work with the residents and the hall 

Southgate established a hall 
government in the fall and Vice President Chris 
Reichert said he felt the management was 
dealing with complaints well. He cited an 


incident involving a higher cost for the use of 
laundry equipment. According to Reichert, 
when residents complained and made a valid 
case, the costs were brought down to 
comparable levels. 

"I got involved to help change 
things," Reichert said. "I don't really agree 
with the gripes people have; I'm pretty 
satisfied with it. I look at what other people 
on campus have and it can't compare to what 
we have." 

Thoman said that although Southgate 
had a lot of good ideas, there were still things 
that needed to be worked out.

An alcohol survey of 
American campuses 
revealed the nature, scope 
and consequence of 
collegiate drinking for the 
first time. It found that 
college students drank an 
average of 5.11 drinks per 
week while 7.8 percent of 
students knocked hack 16 
or more drinks per week. 

Forty-five percent of 
students reported using 
alcohol on a weekly or more 
frequent basis. 

Officials said that the 
study, Alcohol and Drugs on 
American College 
Campuses: Use, 
Consequences and 
Perceptions of the Campus 
Environment, was the most 
comprehensive analysis of 
chemical dependency 
among young people. 

The study, which 
drew its findings from a 
database of 56,361 students 
on 78 campuses from 1989-1991 was the most extensive 
ever done on collegiate drinking. The survey was co- 
authored by Cheryl A. Presley of Southern Illinois 
University and Philip W. Meilman of The College of 
William ek Mary. 

The study found that college students in the 
South consumed an average of 3.9 drinks per week and 35 
percent reported hinging in the two weeks prior to the 
study. Binge drinking was when an individual indulged in 
five or more drinks in one sitting. Forty-two percent of the 
students surveyed nationwide admitted recent binge 
drinking prior to the survey. 

". . . when more than 40 percent of college students

report recent binge drinking, we cannot pretend that 
alcohol abuse is just an isolated or infrequent event," 
Secretary of Education William R. Riley said. "The fact is 
far too many students are jeopardizing their heath and 
safety, as well as that of others." 

Nationally, it was found that underage college 
drinkers consumed more alcohol and suffered more 
blackouts, hangovers and problems with their drinking 
than students of legal age. Illegal drinkers had the hardest 
struggle with alcohol, the report disclosed, pointing to the 
fact that they are twice as likely to have been victims of 
sexual assault or to have taken sexual advantage of others. 

"Underage drinkers aren't as careful and don't 
handle alcohol as well as older students," Meilman said. 

This same group was twice as likely, when drunk, 
to have taken part in more violent acts and destruction of 
property. According to the findings, underagers were 
more likely to suffer acute physical problems, suicidal 
moods and actions and poor academic performance. 

The report noted that gender differences in 
alcohol abuse were important factors for structuring 
rehabilitation and counseling services. This was the first 
time that such findings were brought to light for 
consideration. The survey documented that males were 
heavier drinkers than females. 

One of the study's most disturbing findings was 
the discovery that about one-third of the students said they 
had driven while intoxicated at least once in the year 
before the survey. However, less than two percent 
reported that the police had stopped them from driving 
while intoxicated. 

Nationwide, the most frequent drinkers on 
college campuses earned the lowest grade point averages. 
Students who reported 
D and F GPAs 
consumed an average 
of 1 1 drinks per week, 
while students who earned A's averaged only three drinks. 

"Campus officials and students themselves can 
now clearly assess the scope and consequences of 
substance abuse," co-author Presley said.

To find some relief from the 
daily stress, students take to 


"Tank full?" 





"Check. Can we go now?" 

"Car keys. ..where are my car keys!? 

"That's it, I'm outta here!" 

If this sounded in any way familiar it was because, for 
one reason or another, you were one of the many who hopped 
into their cars and drove off to some exotic destination far 
from the confines of Tallahassee. 

Although the sites of away football games were most 
popular among these locales, there were many more 
motivating factors to get up and go in the Sunshine State. 
The fabulous mecca of Mickey, more commonly known as 
Walt Disney World, in Central Florida provided many 
students with a tempting diversion. 

"I visit Orlando at least three times a year to go to 
one of the theme parks," senior Andrea Gray said. "I'm drawn 
by some mystical force, I guess. I just love visiting there." 

The beaches of any coast were also popular 
destinations and could reached by driving in virtually 
any direction. Alligator Point and Panama City were 
most frequented by day-trippers, while beaches in 
Jacksonville and South Florida were targeted by weekend 

"I need the sun and sand to recharge my batteries 
after a tough week of school, so on sunny weekends I'll usually 
take off for P.C. Beach for a day or so," senior Jennifer 
Reynolds said. 

February meant only one thing for students needing 
an excuse to get away: Mardi Gras. 

The allure of 
beads, beer and naked 
people dancing in the 
streets was enough to 
bring out even the 
quietest homebodies. 

"I'll never forget Mardi Gras. ..of course I can't 

By Todd Kimmelman 

remember it but I was told that I had a great time and I 
made it through the weekend without having to be taken 
to the hospital or jail," junior Dave Hamilton said. "It was 
the best weekend I never had." 

New Orleans was an easy escape for students also 
because of its proximity to Tallahassee and its lowered 
drinking age. It was a popular trek just a few hours down 
Interstate 10. 

Neighbors to the north welcomed students with 
open arms. The Peach State's border was only minutes 
from campus and was a great spot for an impromptu picnic. 

A few hours further lay Atlanta, home of the free 
and land of the Braves. As the closest major league 
baseball team to Tallahassee, the Atlanta Braves were 
adopted as the surrogate home team among sports fans on 

"After coming to Florida State and being a 
Seminole fan it seemed like the next logical step," senior 
Tom Watson said. "After all, the Braves and the 
Seminoles have a lot in common, the highlight of which 
is Deion Sanders." 

Of course, the city offered much more than just 
baseball. Great shopping, food and night life added to 
Atlanta's allure. 

Many students found that it was convenient to 
visit there because they could stay free with friends who 
were attending one of the many schools there. 

"I'm poor and proud," senior Audrey Kayne said. 
"When I feel the need to take off somewhere I go to 
Atlanta and stay with my best friend in her dorm at 
Georgia Tech." 

Of course, the ultimate, end-all, be-all road trip 
had absolutely nothing to do with exotic locales, 
alcoholic beverages, or sporting events. It was a trip home 
to Mom and Pop. 

The home cooked meals were paradise enough 
for those who blazed the trail back to the homestead. If 
one could survive the flurry of questions from relatives 
and the endless inquisition about grades, you may actually 
have decided to return there... someday.

According to Inside Ed ge, 
University students really 
know how to 


Local bars overfill with 
students every weekend. 
During the evening of 
Ithe Miami victory, 
students gathered in 

/uring the Miami 
game, the crowd does 
the wave. These were 
the biggest waves that 
Tallahassee saw. 

Every club and bar 
within the Tallahassee radius 
featured a drink special geared 
toward attracting college 
students of legal age. 
Students went out, consumed 
more than their body could 
handle and woke up the next 
morning with a throbbing 
headache. Classes were 
skipped because students 
were too busy hugging the 
toilet and trying to remember 
who they had danced with the 
previous night. 

When the October 
polls came in, the 
University was crowned 
the nation's best party 
school. Not only did the 
University have an 
exceptional athletic 
reputation to showcase but 
this recognition added the 
number one fun factor to 
University system 
contributions. The poll 
was taken by Inside Edge , a 
Northeastern magazine produced by students attending 
Harvard University. According to the poll, the University 
had all the makings of a student's paradise. 

"With perfect weather, women and waves, 
Florida State is a full-time party for its 30,000 
undergraduates," the article said. "And with the year 
round frenzy that follows the Seminoles as they compete at 
the national level in basketball, baseball and football, 
Florida State undergraduates rarely have a moment to 

The reviews from the University community 
were mixed. Some took the title as a compliment, while 
others did not appreciate the stereotype it placed upon the

University's reputation as a prestigious institution. The 
article suggested that the University's lenient graduation 
requirements made it easy for students to party their way 
through school and still receive a degree. Dispelling this 
"negative image" was one of President D'Alemberte's first 
priorities when elected to office in early December. He 
said he thought the University needed to challenge 
students to do more. Vice President for Student Affairs 
Jon Dalton agreed with the president and said the survey 
was immature. 

"I think these surveys are ludicrous to begin 
with," Dalton said. "They are not scientific. ..but they can 
be powerfully negative. They convey messages that are 
very misleading when they portray students as being not 
serious about academics." 

Many students argued the inaccuracy of the 
article viewing the University as a tropical paradise. The 
Gulf of Mexico was quite a drive from Tallahassee, not to 
mention there were no waves for surfing except when the 
occasional hurricane blew by. Junior Shannon Hopkins 
said she was amused by what the article said about the 
perfect weather and women. 

"If only they could visit Tallahassee in a month 
like August when it is so hot you cannot breathe. We wish 
we had the sea breeze and waves they spoke of," Hopkins 
said. "As far as the perfect women... what about all of the 
attractive men they never included in the article?" 

Despite the controversy the article caused, many 
students seemed to secretly take pride in what the polls 
showed. The men from Harvard made the University look 
like the best place on earth for those four or five years 
students knew as college. Not only were Seminoles the 
best in sports but students also knew how to have a good 
time and study. 

"College is 
what you make of it, 
no matter where you 
attend. You can either study and make good grades or you 
can party your education away," senior Brian Treby said. "I 
think it's good to have a balance between the two and 
Florida State offers the best of both worlds."

Students find creative 
ploys to avoid paying 
attention in class. Here 
are the 


10. Sleep. 

Maybe it was an 8 a.m. class. Maybe it was a 2 p.m. 
class. Regardless, the monotone drone of your professor's 
voice slowly (or, in most cases, quickly) lulled you to sleep. 

"The most restful sleep that I've ever gotten has 
been in my 8 o'clock class in Fisher Lecture Hall," sophomore 
Carrie Pollock said. 
9. Doodle. 

The artist within you had always been screaming to 
be set free. Now it had its chance, unleashed on the 
unsuspecting desks of your classroom. Whether it was your 
fraternity's or sorority's letters or a less-than-flattering 
rendition of your professor, in your eyes it was a masterpiece. 
8. Balance your checkbook. 

A refreshing change from analytical trigonometry, 
this task required only the knowledge of basic arithmetic. 

"I'm so busy that the only time I have to balance my 
checkbook is during my classes," senior Julie Hiipakka said. 
"If I didn't have so many boring lectures, I'd probably bounce 
a lot more checks." 
7. Visualize your professor naked. 

Admit it. You had thought about it once or twice. 
The attraction had been obvious ever since you had laid eyes 
on the instructor.. .and then you woke up. You were still stuck 
back at reason number ten! The thought may have crossed 
your mind, however, but only as a means of retaining your 
sanity and keeping yourself entertained during such a boring 
lecture. Anything more was too hideous to even consider. 
6. Compose a symphony. 

You didn't have to be a music major to accomplish 
this one, just creative. A tune may have just popped into your 
head and you ran with it. 

Heck, if the Breakfast Club gang could do it, then 

you could too. After 
all, Mozart was barely 
into double digits 
when he composed his 
first symphony. 
5. Fantasize about being Charlie Ward. 

You could do a lot worse than being the University's 

By Todd Kimmelman 

first Heisman Trophy winner in history. 

"I've always wondered what it would be like to be 
a nationally-recognized star athlete, especially one as 
talented as Charlie," sophomore Jennifer Metts said. 

The two-sport athlete was the envy of all who 
watched him pick up the prestigious award on Dec. 1 1, 
4. Write a best-selling book. 

If former President Bush's dog, Millie, could do 
it, anyone could. Any subject would do. 

From the torrid love affair that you had with your 
professor in your freshman year to tips for surviving the 
camp-outs for football tickets. The longer you had been 
in college, the more material you had to work with. 
3. Estimate the weight of the person sitting next to 
you. ..and then ask if you're right. 

This could have been the ultimate test of 
restraint, especially since the person next to you looked 
like Dunkin Donuts' best customer. It may have seemed 
cruel but the level was entirely at your discretion. 

"I've always wondered how those guys do it at 
carnivals," sophomore Veronica Nigro said, "I guess they 
must have been to a lot of boring lectures." 
2. Read all 2000 pages of the North American Free 
Trade Agreement. 

This accomplishment would undoubtedly rank 
you among the elite. Aside from the unfortunate soul who 
had to typeset the behemoth, you probably would have 
been only the second person to read it cover to cover. 

"So many people have so much criticism about 
NAFTA that I wonder how many of them actually read it, 
especially Ross Perot," senior Elizabeth Perez said. 
1. Contemplate the meaning of life. 

Life, the universe and everything. 

What did a 4-0 GPA mean in the worldly scheme 
of things anyway? 

Was winning the National Championship in 
football the ultimate reward? 

"Who cares! I'm graduating and the 'Noles are 
number one!" senior Jennifer Shaw said.

The School of Theatre 
celebrated its 20th anniversary 
with a flare and a standard of 
excellence that exemplified what 
the students had learned 
throughout the years. 

On Sept. 28, 1973, the 
Florida Board of Regents supported 
the promotion of the Department 
of Theatre to its own school. The 
theatre department had a long 
history of successful theatrical 
performances, originating from the 
West Florida Seminary in 1857. 
The School of Theatre's first 
performance was "Our Town," 
under the direction of the first 
dean, Richard Fallon. 

Fallon remained the dean 
for 10 years, exemplifying 
leadership that resulted in the 
renaming of the Mainstage 
Theatre to the Fallon Theatre in 
1989. The present dean, Gil Lazier, 
succeeded Fallon in 1983 and 
continued to open the doors for 
students and teachers to the 
community of live theatrical 

"I am proud to celebrate 
the 20th Anniversary of the 
founding of the School of Theatre 
by working with the new capable 
leader who will take the School 
into the 21st Century, Gil Lazier, 
and the talented students who are 
present," Dean Emeritus Fallon 

The School of Theatre 
encompassed three active and 
separate live stages throughout the 
University's campus. The 
Mainstage (Fallon) Theatre 
resided in the Fine Arts Building, 
housing the four major live 
performances of the year. The 
smaller Augusta Conradi Studio 
Theatre in the Williams building 
sat about half the number of people 
as the Fallon Theatre and 


presented two productions per 
semester. 1987 saw the creation of 
"The Lab," a small 150 seat 
theatre, which allowed for the 
cultivation of experimental 
performances by faculty and 

Aside from the sites of 
theatrical performance on campus, 
the School of Theatre extended 
down the state to Sarasota, where 
the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for 
Actor Training attracted many 
promising performers. In addition 
to its extension in the state of 
Florida, the School of Theatre 
maintained cultural awareness by 
participating in international 
exchange programs in several 
foreign countries. The most 
successful has been the exchange 
program with the Moscow Art 
Theatre School, which entailed 
two American/Russian programs. 
With its active involvement in 
various classical masterpieces, 
contemporary theatre and musical 
theatre, the School has maintained 
a distinct excellence which 
resulted in the ranking by US News 
and World Report as one of the 10 
best graduate theatre programs in 

The year of anniversary 
celebration brought about some 
new additions to the faculty as well 
as special events that 
complimented the four Mainstage 
productions. The first production 
of the season was "Carousel," 
which marked the return of 
alumnus Michael Piontek in the 
leading role of Billy Bigelow. 
Piontek earned his MFA in acting 
from the FSU/Asolo Conservatory. 
His success as an actor included 
many television appearances and 
roles, especially on "Knots 
Landing." He most recently 
completed a successful role in the

Lazier said. 

"He is a terrific performer 
who will enhance the quality of the 
great musical and will inspire the 
students working with him." 

The School of Theatre 
also experienced faculty changes as 
it welcomed both Michael Zelenak 
and Gregory Bell to its faculty at 
the beginning of the fall semester. 
Zelenak served as the coordinator 
of graduate programs, utilizing his 
experience in professional, 


educational and administrative 
theatre from Yale University. 

"Michael Zelenak's 
knowledge and experience will 
greatly enhance the graduate 
programs in the School of 
Theatre," Dean Lazier said. 

Bell headed the graduate 
program in design/technology and 
served as the production manager. 
Bell had been a consultant on 
theatre projects and technical 
personnel in addition to teaching 
at various universities, most 
notably Carnegie Mellon. 

"We look forward to 
utilizing his (Bell's) skills and 
talents to enhance our programs in 
technical theatre, as well as the 
quality of our various productions,"

Students having a hard 
time finding where their interests 
lay or what major to choose could 
find helpful career advisors 
available for answering questions 
at anytime through the Curricular- 
Career Information Service. 

The students were issued 
self-assessment activities to test 
which skills and interests suited 
them, such as self-inventory tests, 
computer-based guides and check 
lists. Various books and brochures 
also offered information about 
careers as well as special workshops 
and seminars. 

Once settled into a major, 
students found the Career 
Experience Opportunities Office 
very useful in contacting an 
internship and/or placing them 
into an internship. 

This provided the 
students with a chance to test their 
decisions about a certain major by 
giving them the opportunity to use 
what they had learned. It also gave 
them a head start in finding 
employment after graduation as 
well as credentials to add to their 

The Career Placement 
Service was perhaps the most 
widely used resource at the Career 
Center. CPS primarily specialized 

in helping graduating seniors find 
employment or post graduate 
schools. The Resource Library 
provided computer systems, 
handouts and advisement for those 
who were going on to graduate 

Helping students obtain 
job searching skills, critiquing 
resumes and providing individual 
interviews with potential 
employers were some of the tasks of 
the CPS. 

In addition, literature and 
job listings on current job openings 
were also helpful. Seminole 
Futures Career Exposition, an 
event each semester for companies 
to come and recruit seniors, was the 
one of the biggest events for CPS. 
It educated students on the 
availability of entry-level positions 
and the character of participating 

"Having the information 
at my fingertips enabled me to 
compare company approaches. I 
decided I really liked John 
Hancock's philosophy on sales," 
senior Jesse Christiansen said. 
"This knowledge gave me more 
confidence and I'm sure my 
impression was more memorable." 

The task of choosing a 
major and sticking with it, 
obtaining an internship and then 
making definite plans for the future 
after graduation was certainly not 

It required much 
patience, commitment and 
determination by each student. 
The Career Center was the place to 
make a dent in all of the chaos. 

"There are many routes to 
take," Career Center Associate 
Director Allan McPeak said. "In 
fact, it can get pretty confusing. A 
job search through the Career 
Center is not a one day event."

With the building of the University Center the 
administration was facing a move. 


Cuts in Florida's 
university system budget have 
become common over recent 
years. Universities across the state 
lost a great deal of money and 
faculty members due to these cuts. 

Due to the cuts, the 
University has cut back on classes, 
closed off smaller majors and 
reduced positions across the state. 

In September of 1991, 
students and faculty members from 
across the state staged a march to 
the Capitol. 

The purpose of the 
demonstration was to get the 
attention of legislators that 
continually cut the education 
budget in Florida. 

The cut in 1 99 1 was not a 
solitary event. This year the state 
university system saw more of the 
same treatment. 

"It was a very positive 
experience to see the faculty and 
students working together for a 
common goal," senior Julie Hiipika 
said. "What the legislators are 
failing to see is that cuts will have 
strong repercussions." 

Florida's state university 
system seemed to be moving 
backwards in comparison to other 
states' systems. While others were 
moving up in the rankings, the 
Florida system was fearing a slip. 

The state of Florida was 
ranked 35th in the nation in 
regards to the average salary level of 
state university employees. 

In order to compete with 
universities across the nation, the 
budget proposed by the university 
system to the Florida Legislature for 
the 1994-95 budget year included a 
1 percent raise in the salaries of all 
faculty and staff members. 

The proposed raise was to 
be used to attempt to regain the 
average salary level the state 

university system had attained 
during the 1990-91 budget year. 
During that budget year, the state 
was ranked 27th in the nation in 
regards to the average salary level of 
state university employees. 

Since then, Florida has 
dropped eight places. 
Furthermore, the average salary of 
state employees was approximately 
9.7 percent below the average 
salary of employees at comparable 
public universities across the 

In addition, associate 
professors in the state were the 
most behind with their salaries at 
4.2 percent below the national 

"What they are failing to 
see is if they keep cutting salaries 
teachers will leave the state and 
with no incentive to stay, the will 
drive our quality of education 
further down," senior Wendy 
Stephen said. 

The hoard of regents was 
not looking to substantially 
increase the salaries of employees, 
instead it was looking to move back 
to the 27th place ranking. 

The board of regents did 
not want to see the state university 
system slide any lower in these 
rankings. They realized that if 
something was not done soon, 
universities throughout the state 
were in jeopardy of losing quality 
faculty members. 

Joanne Campbell, BOR 
human resource office, reiterated 
the general objective of the board. 

"We are just trying to 
keep the university system from 
falling further behind," Campbell

The 20th century's voice 
of the stars, Dr. Carl Sagan, graced 
the stage of the Distinguished 
Lecture Series on the night of its 
tenth anniversary. Since Sagan was 
the opening speaker in 1983 when 
the Lecture Series began, this date 
also marked the 10 year reunion for 
Sagan with the University's 
students and staff. 

Sagan's contribution to 
the study of planetary science was 
unsurpassed. He played a leading 
role in the Mariner, Viking and 
Voyager spacecraft expeditions to 
the planets, for which he received 
the NASA Medal for Exceptional 
Scientific Achievement. 

He also served as 
Chairman of the Division for 
Planetary Sciences for the 
American Astronomical Society, 
served as President of the 
Planetology Section of the 
American Association for the 
Advancement of Science and was 
editor in chief of Icarus, the leading 
professional journal devoted to 
planetary research. However, the 
TV generation remembered him 
best for his television series, 
"COSMOS," which became the 
most widely watched series in the 
history of public television and 
earned Sagan an Emmy and a 
Peabody Award. 

"Consider this," Sagan 
said, as the lights dimmed, 
enveloping the Tallahassee/Leon 
County Civic Center in blackness, 
"we are the first generation to see 
the planets." 

Projected onto the movie 
theater-sized screen were Mercury, 
Venus, Earth, Mars, Saturn, 
Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune in 
their natural orbits. Their oranges 
and reds illuminated the room as 
Sagan took the audience on a 
journey to meet the ancient 

observationists of the universe. 
The audience watched the sun rise 
in the east and set in the west and 
watched the stars follow the same 
pattern. Five of these stars, 
however, seemed to wander. The 
ancients thought they were gods 
but today's civilization has come to 
know known as the planets. 

"Just in a flash we have 
gone from ignorance to some 
degree of knowledge," Sagan said. 

Upon his command, the 
audience was landing with the 
Viking craft on the surface of Mars. 
Sagan admitted that although he 
once believed that the crew might 
find life on Mars, his beliefs were 
not confirmed. Because the planet 
lacks an ozone layer, explained 
Sagan, ultraviolet light strikes the 
surface and destroys organic

ago, Mars was a planet much like 
earth with rivers and a warm, wet 

"You look at an earth-like 
planet like Mars and you learn the 
dangers of what stupid things not to 
do to your world," Sagan said. 

After the audiences' tour 
through time and the light-years, 
Sagan closed his lecture with a final 
comment on extraterrestrial life, 
"It is typical for humans to think 
that, like the ancients, we are at the 
center of the universe. It is 
arrogance, conceit and pretension 
to think we are the only intelligent 
beings in the universe." 

At the conclusion of 
Sagan's two-hour lecture, the 
audience filtered through the Civic 
Center doors into a star-filled 

marked a return for Sagan to the University.

Two Magnetic Lab workers, Mark Bird and 
Scott Bole, check the functions of the lab's first 
resistive magnet. Safety was at the forefront oi 
everyone's mind. 


News of a national 
laboratory dedicated to the study of 
high field magnetism seized the 
attention of the scientific 

Dr. Jack Crow, a professor 
of physics initiated the University's 
involvement. He was later chosen 
as director of the laboratory. The 
National Science Foundation 
accepted proposals from 
competing organizations and the 
winning proposal was rewarded 
with a research grant. 

"I felt we had as good a 
chance as anybody," Crow said. 

However, only f o ur 
months remained before the due 
date. Time was running short and 
the Legislature had yet to approve 
the proposal. 

Governor Lawton Chiles 
shared Crow's enthusiasm for the 
project and the Florida Legislature 
agreed that if the project was 
successful, then Tallahassee would 
be noted in history as the front- 
runner in magnetism research. 

Predictions proved 
victorious. The laboratory, 
officially known as The National 
High Magnetic Field Laboratory, 
occupied 290,000 square feet of the 
University's Innovation Park. 

The magnets contained 
in the laboratory were the most 
sophisticated in existence. Models 
generated magnetic fields from 
several thousand up to millions of 
times that of the Earth's. Because 
of its sheer size and capacity, the 
NHMFL dwarfed all previous 
efforts in the study of high field 

During the next decade, 
the NHMFL devoted $300 million 
toward to development and use of 
the world's largest, most powerful 
resistive, hybrid and 
superconducting magnets. 


Though the results of this research 
might have seemed important only 
to intellectual elites, 
electromagnets produced practical 
conveniences including levitated 
trains, microwave radar and 
Magnetic Resonance Imaging used 
in medicine. 

Opportunities to improve 
on this existing knowledge were 
extended to scientists in premier 
labs and universities worldwide. 
An international peer review 
committee evaluated proposals, 
filtering the multitudes of those 
desiring to use the facility. Up to 
400 researchers were expected to 
use the lab yearly. 

A view into the atomic 
and electronic skeletons of matter 
gave understanding as to how 
rubbers bent and how metals stood 
up to heat and corrosion. Vast 
amounts of research was spent on 
superconductivity. Franz Frieberg, 
a graduate student of Crow's, was 
studying the resistance of ceramics 
coated in a superconducting 

"By testing and applying 
stress to various ceramics, perhaps 
one type might be found which 
functioned at higher 
temperatures," Frieberg said. 

Though lightweight and 
excellent at retaining heat, 
ceramics were too brittle to be of 
practical use. If a ceramic was 
found to operate successfully at 
room temperature, the efficiency of 
engines made of metallic materials 
would be improved. 

The first two 
appointments to NHMFL were 
Nobel Laureate Dr. Robert 
Schrieffer and Dr. Hans Schneider- 
Muntau, the leader of the magnet 
development program at Max 
Planck Institute. Both were leaders 
in high-field magnetism and

Lev Gor'kov, a Russian 
scientist, was an expert theorist on 
the practical macroscopic aspect of 
superconductivity. He assisted 
NHMFL in their study oi~ MRI. 
Four wings of the lab were 
dedicated to the development of 
this new technology. By 
magnetically polarizing ions 
within the body, an image of the 
inner workings of a brain or heart, 
for example, were capable of being 
reproduced. MRI saved thousands 
of lives in diagnostic hospitals 
nationwide. NHMFL was a 
coalition of federal, state and 
private forces. The State of Florida 
contributed over $66 million to the 
construction of the lab, as well as 
$1.2 million per year for a visitor's 


program. A Corporate Affiliates 
Program linked the private sector 
with the lab by providing 
opportunities for firms to aid in 
development. The Apple 
Corporation, for example, donated 
one million dollars in hardware and 
services in support of the facility. 

"By the year 1995, the 
National High Magnetic Field 
Laboratory will be the only 
research facility of its kind in the 
Western hemisphere," Janet 
Patten, director of public relations 
for the lab, said.

turn heads for a moment. It

Professor Eugene Crooke shows the class 
overhead sheets of Shakespeare notes. Many 
students were dissappointed that Shakespeare 
was no longer a requirement, as classes were so 
difficult to get through registration. 


"To be or not to he, 
that is the question." 

These were perhaps the 
most famous of Shakespeare's 
verses. If the question that was 
being asked regarded the 
University's Shakespeare 
requirement, the answer was: not 
to be. 

In response to the budget 
cuts imposed on the state 
university system, the English 
department was forced to drop the 
Shakespeare requirement from its 

In past years, English 
majors have been required to take a 
Shakespeare class in order to 
graduate. However, increasing 
numbers of students and decreasing 
amounts of money forced the 
English department to reconsider 
the requirement. 

"The University could 
not require students to take a class 
when there were only a few sections 
of it being offered each semester," 
English department Student 
Affairs Coordinator Ann Durham 

Durham went on to say 
that although it would not be 
required, the class would still be 
offered for anyone interested in 
taking it. 

Typically, two or three 
sections were offered each semester 
and this was not enough to handle 
the constantly increasing number 
of English majors. 

In addition, there were no 
major codes for English classes, so 
any student could take an English 
class. This prevented many lower 
division majors from picking up the 
class because higher division non- 
majors were taking the class as an 
elective. Departments that used 
codes to restrict non-major 
students from registering for 

certain classes typically only put 
the barrier on upper level required 

On the first day of class, 
there were always students sitting 
on the floor and standing in the 
corners, hoping the professor 
would add them to the class 
because they were unable to pick it 
up through regular telephone 

In addition, there were 
many students who were having 
problems graduating because they 
were unable to pick up the class 
semester after semester. 

Instead of having to take 
the Shakespeare class to graduate, 
English majors were required to 
take a British Literature before 
1660 class. This included 
Medieval Literature, Renaissance 
Literature, Chaucer or Milton. 

Junior English Education 
major Maureen Cavanaugh said 
she thought the Shakespeare class 
was too important to miss. 

"I just can't imagine being 
an English major and not having to 
take a Shakespeare class," 
Cavanaugh said. "It is a shame that 
there aren't enough teachers to 
teach the class because I think it is 
a vital part of an English degree." 

Not all English majors 
shared Cavanaugh's sentiments. 
Junior English Education major 
Brian Hollinsworth agreed with 
the change. 

"I think it is cool," 
Hollinsworth said. "People should 
not have to take the class if they do 
not want to." 

While English majors 
seeking their teaching certification 
were required to take a 
Shakespeare class, students that 
were English majors prior to the 
change had the choice between the 
two options.

Constructed in 1921, 
Jennie Murphree hall was one of 
the newly renovated residence 
halls on campus. The hall was 
named for Jennie Murphree, a 
native of Tallahassee. Jennie 
Murphree was the wife o( the 
Florida State College for Women's 
first president, Alhert A. Murphree 

The hall served as an 
example of Jacobean Revival 
architecture. The multi-million 
dollar project began with the 
renovation of Jennie Murphree, an 
all women's residence hall, and will 
continue over the course of the 
years with Bryan, Reynolds, 
Gilchrist and Broward residence 

Jennie Murphree was 
closed for two years during the 
renovation. It reopened for the fall 
term of 1993, bigger and better 
than ever. There was a dedication 
ceremony held in honor of its 
opening. The ceremony 
essentially consisted of members of 
the board of regents, the past and 
present residents of the hall and 
the University Women's Choir. 
Lunch was served and residents 
gave tours to the guests. 

"I enjoyed the dedication 
ceremony and meeting the oldest 
living resident of the hall," junior 
Natalia Delgado said. 

Although a little more 
expensive than some of the other 
halls, many students preferred 
Jennie Murphree. There was a 
waiting list to obtain residence in 
the hall due to the high number of 
requests by students. 

"I chose this hall because 
of its central location and all of my 
classes are around it," sophomore 
Michelle Quiles said. 

The students felt more 
secure because the usual building 

key was not used. Entrance into the 
residence hall was gained through 
the use of a card-key. If the card- 
key was stolen or lost, the code was 
invalidated and a new one was 

Since the interior was 
remodeled, residents said the 
rooms were cleaner and more 
appealing. Also the female 
students were restricted to share 
the bathroom with a maximum of 
only one other female. 

"I appreciate my own 
bathroom in my bedroom," 
freshman Sybille Oldham said. 

Jennie Murphree was 
equipped with 335 air-conditioned 
womens spaces. The hall had 
limited visitation and was staffed 
with a hall director, seven resident 
assistants and a hall manager. 

The Jennie Murphree 
hall director, Amie Schiedegger a 
doctoral student in criminology, 
enjoyed preparing historic events 
for the students that were currently 
residing in the hall. 

On the bottom floor of 
Jennie Murphree, all oi the 
students were majoring in a science 
or health related major. That floor 
was reserved for the Women in 
Science program. 

The program entailed 
special activities and support 
services for women majoring in the 
physical sciences, mathematics 
and engineering. For instance, if 
the student was interested in the 
medical field, the program would 
facilitate students with a medical 
surrounding in which the student 
could learn and observe. 

The Jennie Murphree 
hall renovation was a great success 
for the women presently attending 
the University and for the women 
who will be attending the 
University in the future.

On campus, housing for transfer students is 
located in Cawthon Hall. Cawthon Hall was 
located on the east side of the University near 
Landis Green and Strozier Library. 




Each fall, the University 
welcomed thousands of new 
students to campus. 

Most people incorrectly 
assumed the unfamiliar faces were 
all freshman. Instead, many of the 
new faces on campus were those of 
transfer students. 

The majority of transfer 
students were individuals who had 
received an Associate oi Arts 
degree from a junior college. They 
then came to the University to 
complete their course work for a 
Bachelor's degree. Transfer 
students also included the who 
attended a junior college or four 
year institution and left before 
earning a degree. 

There were advantages in 
completing the first two years of 
school at a junior college rather 
that at a larger university. 

"Basically, everyone has 
to take the same classes their 
freshman and sophomore years. I 
decided to take classes at a junior 
college because they were less 
expensive than at a university," 
transfer student Karin Shwinger 

In addition to the cost 
benefit, junior colleges offered 
smaller classes. This appealed to 
many students fresh out of high 
school, especially those who 
worried about their academic 
performance in a certain subject. 

"In high school, I 
struggled with math. I'd heard 
about universities holding huge 
classes in auditoriums and it 
concerned me," senior Samuel 
Davis said. 

Attending a smaller 
college at first often made it 
possible for transfer students to 
enroll into the college with a 
higher grade point average. Thus, 
in their junior and senior years, 
transfer students concentrated on 

their field of study rather than on 
struggling to raise their GPA. 

The arrival to a new and 
much larger school was a different 
transition for some. The 
University recognized this and 
aided transfers in their adjustment. 

Transfer students were 
assigned their own orientation 
dates and the activities catered to 
their needs. 

"I was excited about 
coming to FSU but I was also sad 
about leaving my friends. I worried 
that I would have trouble meeting 
people. At orientation, we were 
placed in groups and played silly, 
fun games. It was hard not to make 
friends," senior Daishara Jimenez 

Established as a residency 
for transfer students, Cawthon Hall 
became "a home away from home" 
for many. In addition to the usual 
staff of Resident Assistants, the hall 
provided each floor with a Transfer 
Student Assistant. Although a 
transfer student may have 
considered living in an apartment 
Cawthon Hall provided the 
stability that some students 

T S A ' s were former 
transfer students and understood 
the anxieties of being in an 
unfamiliar place. 

They provided the new 
residents with information 
concerning academics, campus 
activities and locations, the 
Tallahassee area and any other 
helpful advice. 

Most transfers adjusted 
quickly and by the end of their first 
semester, felt as though they had 
been here for years. 

"Although I didn't attend 
FSU for four years, I was as much o( 
a Seminole fan as anyone on 
campus," Schwinger said.

The Bellamy Building 
was one of the most active spots on 
campus, serving as the mecca for all 
social science majors. With many 
students rushing in and out of 
classrooms, few noticed the 
inconspicuous door that led to the 
Cartography Lah. Others who did 
occasionally pass hy it wondered 
what the word cartography meant. 
Indeed it was a topic to be avoided. 
No one wanted to ask — "was it 
something I should know about?" 
Did everyone else (besides 
geography majors) know what 
cartography entailed? Perhaps if 
everyone knew that the 
cartography lab was an interesting 
place where maps were drawn and 
created, more attention would be 
given to it. 

In the early 1970's Dr. 
Edward Fernald, geography 
professor, was the central figure in 
instituting a cartography lab 
within the University. The lab 
would be a part of the Florida 
Resources and Environment 
Analysis Center (FREAC). The 
Cartography lab became its own 
separate service department within 
the University, although it worked 
closely on occasion with the 
Geography Department. For this 
reason the non-academic lab was 
housed in the Bellamy building, 
amidst all of the social sciences. 

"It was this idea of 
providing for local, state and 
federal governments the resources 
we had (in correspondence with 
geography) at our disposal that 
instituted a cartography lab," 
Director of Cartography Peter 
Krafft said. 

The traditional aspect of 
cartography included a very time- 
consuming and skilled job of hand- 
cutting geographical line images 
onto film (like winding rivers). 

The whole process was 
photomechanical, using light 
tables and darkrooms to copy the 
images over. The past 10 years 
have inevitably brought about the 
role of the computer to 
cartography, enabling the 
transition from the tedious process 
to a quicker, more efficient one. 
The University was now equipped 
with computers and laser printers, 
and the process of establishing 
multimedia CD ROM into the lab 
was developing. While the 
computers saved a lot of space and 
materials for the cartographers, the 
University's output devices were 
not big enough. Much of the data 
had to be sent away to be printed. 
In addition the computers would 
not allow for the processing of 
anything with large format. 

"We are presently doing 
work on putting CD ROM into the 
lab for the process of making the 
Florida Atlas," Director of 
Cartography Jim Anderson said. 
"It is a multimedia project that will 
be circulated to all Florida 

It was a great effort for the 
cartographers to adapt to the "new" 
computerized way of making maps. 
There were indeed still benefits of 
using the traditional methods. 
However one of the benefits of the 
computers came with the necessary 
updating of certain maps. Now, 
any landscaping changes, 
additional roads, bridges or 
waterways and other changes could 
be accomplished easier on the 
computer. Most importantly the 
statistical maps processed by the 
lab were always changing with new 
data and information. 

Throughout the years 
students have been able to become 
involved at the Cartography lab, 
learning the necessary skills

being transformed from a hands-on process to

process of making maps, as computer programs 
could do the work for the cartographer.

needed to make and develop maps. 
The University offered Directed 
Individual Studies and student 
assistantships; however with the 
arrival of computers in the lab the 
cartographers needed to become 
familiarized with the process before 
training students. With new 
projects coming to the University 
the cartographers were hopeful in 
once again hosting students in the lab. 
The Federal government 
had hired the Cartography Lab to 
do various jobs, including volumes 
of maps, graphs and graphics of 
land water hydraulics. The 
University of Kansas, the 
University of Wisconsin and 
Florida State University housed 
the only university cartographic 
labs in the nation. The 


cartographers also did maps for 
professors' publications. Perhaps 
the most important 
accomplishment of the lab was the 
yearly publication of the Florida 
Health Care Atlas for HRS and the 
Florida Atlas, in which all maps, 
statistical graphs and graphics were 
produced at the University. 

"There is a real and 
sophisticated talent in being able 
to transfer table data into a map," 
Fernald said. "The cartographers 
do high quality work while training 
students, who in turn get 
experience and funding. The 
President of National Geographic 
was so impressed with our Florida 
Atlas and the fact that it was 
produced with such excellence at a 
state university."

- Ann Reinking 


In 1990, Ann Reinking added motherhood to 
her resume. A year after her son was born, 
Reinking became the artistic director of the 
Musical Theater Project of Tampa.

The University has 
always prided itself on the hard 
work and dedication its musical 
theater majors brought to the stage. 
The stage was a place where raw 
talent could be transformed into 
something special; sparkles 
gleamed through these diamonds 
in the rough. Perhaps the visions of 
stardom and making it big in show 
business became a little more 
defined for musical theater majors 
during spring semester . Those who 
dreamt of Broadway becoming 
their future place of business now 
had an opportunity to learn the 
tools and tricks of the trade. They 
had the best Broadway had to offer, 
they had the guidance of Ann 

The theatre department 
was fortunate enough to be the host 
of Reinking's talent, experience 
and time for six weeks. The actor, 
dancer, singer and choreograher 
came to the University to occupy 
the Hoffman Eminent Scholar 
Chair in theater. Reinking was the 
eigth recipient of the Chair, named 
after the bequest of $600,000 from 
the estate of Maximillian and 
Marion Hoffman. A grant of 
$400,000 was added from the 
Florida Legislature to make the 
endowment one million dollars. 
The Chair was established after the 
deaths of Mr. and Mrs. Hoffman. 
The benevolent couple shared a 
love of theater and visited Florida 
often. They wanted to see the 
future of dramatics well established 
in Florida. 

"The Hoffman Chair has 
created a legacy for excellence," 
Dean of the School of Theatre Gil 
Lazier said, "setting a standard for 
the creation of subsequent 
Eminent Scholar Chairs." 

Reinking became 
established as one of the most 

talented and accomplished 
entertainers, with a repertoire 
impressive enough to win her well- 
deserved fame. The talented 
woman started dancing at the age 
of 11 and continued until age 18 
when she went to Broadway to 
break into the business. She 
seemed oblivious to the possible 
trials and uncertainties she might 
encounter trying to establish a 
name for herself in New York City. 

"All the awful terrible 
things mothers tell you about New 
York — the dirt, the danger, the 
decadence — simply flew over my 
head," Reinking said. "I was like 
Mr. Magoo driving right on 
through it." 

Obviously, Reinking had 
made her mark on Broadway, as her 
list of credentials grew with her 
fame over the years. Her work 
included "Fiddler on the Roof," 
"Cabaret," "Pippin," and "A 
Chorus Line." She received Tony 
nominations for her stellar 
performances in "Dancin" and 
"Goodtime Charley." Her career 
not only included Broadway hits 
but also film roles in "Movie, 
Movie," "All That Jazz," "Annie" 
and "Micki and Maude." Reinking 
continued to establish herself by 
choreographing "Pal Joey," "Suite 
to Sondheim," "Simple Gifts" and 
"Chicago." "Pal Joey" won her a 
Jefferson Award. 

In 1 990 Reinking pursued 
a career in motherhood after the 
birth of her son. However, she 
continued to choreograph. In 
1991 she became the artistic 
director of the Musical Theater 
Project of Tampa, a center to train 
and educate young theater talent. 
There she earned the 1992 Dance 
Educators of America Award. She 
said she felt that part of being a 
dancer was teaching and passing

In 19 8 2, Ann 
Reinking starred in 
the motion picture 
"Annie" along with 
Carol Burnett, Albert

was a success across 
the nation and around 
the world. The story 
was originally brought 
to the stage and had a 
long run on

the tradition along. 

During her six weeks 
residency at the University, 
Reinking shared her talent and 
knowledge of show business. She 
taught masters classes and 
conducted auditions and 
rehearsals. She also 
choreographed and directed a 
musical theater review in which 
her students could perform what 
they had learned. 

Perhaps the most 
important element taught by 
Reinking was not how to dance or 
sing but how to concentrate on the 
job one was doing, not the glamour 
that want along with it. 

"Believing in the 
goodness of your work, not the 
applause is what's important," 


Reinking said. 

Indeed the Tallahassee 
community beleived in the 
goodness of Reinking's work. 
While in residency she received a 
key to the city of Tallahassee from 
Mayor Dorothy Inman-Crews, an 
award given only to the most 
distingushed persons of the 
community. She also was given the 
Ambassador of Arts Award, for the 
cultural growth of the arts. The 
Assistant Secretary of State Joel 
Sole gave Reinking the award. 

"Ann is intense, she 
knows what she wants but she's 
very sensitive," sophomore musical 
theatre major Montego Glover 
said. "She is very insightful, very 
professional and to see her work is 
extremely rivoting."

For years the University's 
business school has provided a 
curriculum for students looking to 
get their start in marketing, 
management and other areas of the 
job market. 

The school began 
developing a new program, the 
Executive Management Program, 
to help middle managers already in 
the business world keep their 
competitive edge. The program 
was developed along with the 
Center for Professional 

There was a need for 
middle managers to keep up with 
changing times. With interest in 
executive positions increasing, 
there was a demand for technical 
and leadership skills to be further 
developed. Effectiveness in a 
global market became a must. 

The Executive 
Management Program was 
developed to be a seminar that 
focused on these and other issues 
such as making better decisions, 
understanding and using financial 
statements and managing diversity 
in the modern work place. 

"We want to focus on 
what the future work force will be 
like and how to manage the diverse 
issue that will emerge," Melvin 
Stith, dean of the College of 
Business, said. 

He continued on, saying 
that the employees and employers 
of today needed to be more aware of 
new issues as they arose. 

"It's not just ethnic 
diversity, it's also cutting edge 
issues such as paternity leave, aging 
workers, the increasing numbers of 
disabled employees and the 
multinational nature of the labor," 
Stith said. 

The program was an 
original idea and would make 

efforts to address common 
problems in the work place. It was 
designed through a partnership 
made of business professors and 
executives from companies 
including State Farm Insurance, 
First Union Bank and Gulf Power 

"We're not just teaching 
the standard executive 
management program. We believe 
we're responding to the private 
enterprise needs of Florida and the 
nation," Bill Anthony, 
management professor and 
director of the program, said. 

Candidates for the 
program were to be nominated by 
their organization. 

The criteria for selection 
would include work experience, 
employer recommendation and 
the applicability of the program to 
the professional career of the 
candidate. A bachelor's degree 
would be preferred among the 

As business took on a 
more technological edge and 
competition for jobs increased, the 
program provided managers with 
the necessary education in an ever- 
changing job market. 

The program was 
scheduled for a week in February to 
focus on the changes in the labor 
force. The program in March was 
developed to concentrate on 
realizing a competitive edge by 
building a quality management 
program. The program in April 
would focus on formulating and 
executing strategy. Each of the 
three sections was scheduled to last 
one week. 

Originally scheduled for 
1994, the program will run in 1995. 
The program will be the first 
program of its kind at the state 
university level.

located on the corners of Pensacola St. and

the state university level and was designed to 
supplement something that had been missed in 
past curriculum.

Jennie Murphree Residence Hall is the home to 
many female students. The Hall was just newly 
renovated from its original layout. Many of the 
alumni fondly remembered living in the 
dormitory and all of the restrictions that came 
along with it. 


Most students on campus 
never got the chance to learn 
firsthand about the history that 
surrounded the University. 

However when the Class of 
1 944 returned to its alma matter on 
April 15 and 16, several students 
from the Student Alumni 
Association got to learn about a 
slice of the past of the Florida State 
College for Women. 

"One of the first changes the 
ladies noticed, aside from the 
University's coeducational 
atmosphere, was the fact that the 
campus had quadrupled in size," 
SAA member Leslie Hoh said. "I 
guess they didn't expect so much to 
change in 50 years." 

One of the most notable 
differences between FSCW and 
FSU was the amount of freedom 
that the students had in their 
ability to come and go as they 

In 1944, strict rules for the 
young women were listed in the 
FSCW handbook including: 
"Room Limits: Students are 
expected to be in their rooms by 
third light flash and may not leave 
before 7 a.m. except in the case of 
an emergency. Such emergencies 
require written permission from 
the residence counselor." 

SAA president Ashley 
Fillingim was astonished that the 
students of that time could follow 
such stringent limitations. 

"It amazes me that these 
ladies didn't go crazy having such 
restrictions placed upon them. 
However, if they were anything 
like I am, I am positive some of 
them broke the rules to stay out 
later," Fillingim said. 

One thing about the 
University that had not changed 
much since the class of 1944 
departed was the Sweet Shop, 

which was still located in its 
original home on Jefferson Street. 
FSCW students often could scrape 
up enough money for a College 
Girl's Special, a 65 cent steak and 
potatoes meal. 

"From what the ladies told 
me, they would sneak out of their 
rooms with a trench coat over their 
pajamas to go have coffee over at 
the Sweet Shop," SAA member 
Rhett Bullard said. "But I think 
they were really sneaking out to 
meet the pilots being trained at the 
nearby Dale Mabry Army Air 

The part of campus that 
attracted the biggest attention 
form the alumni was the newly 
renovated Jennie Murphree 

"Most of the ladies who lived 
in Jennie Murphree Hall back in 
the forties remembered the bottom 
floor being called the alphabet 
level and how that was where the 
'cool' girls lived," SAA member 
Donna Davis said. "Although they 
were impressed by how much the 
dorm has changed, I think they 
were a little disappointed that the 
alphabet level is now 'floor zero.' 
To them, it just doesn't seem as 
special anymore." 

One thing that students 
discovered while visiting with the 
Class of 1944 was that it did not 
matter if the school was called 
"FSCW" or "FSU" because the 
pride and spirit in the college was 
uniform across the years. 

"Whether students were 
cheering on the Odd-Even teams 
or the Seminole football team, I 
think that the spirit of belonging to 
the special place this university is 
gives anyone who has ever 
attended a class here a real sense of 
pride," SAA member Courtney 
Chase said.

serves as a place to eat and relax for many

Jan Zhang works on modifying a program on the 
electrochemical surface process. The Super 
Computer Research Institute was located on the 
top floor of the Dirac Science Library. The 
University's SCRI was the first of its kind to be 
dedicated entirely to university research. 

86 Academics 





In 1984 the United 
States Department of Energy 
passed a proposal funded by 
Congress to establish an institute 
in which scientists could use super 
computers to do intense research. 
The Super Computations 
Research Institute was erected on 
the top floor of the Dirac Science 
Library at the University. SCRI 
became a mecca to the science 
world, opening up doors to 
researchers and scientists of every 
field of scientific study to come 
and experience the amazing power 
of the computers. 

SCRI was the first 
federally funded supercomputer 
program in the United States 
devoted to university research. 
There was no classified work done 
at SCRI, thus enabling anyone to 
visit and explore the institute's 
research. Professors, students, 
researchers and more than 40 
scientists from all over the world 
had access to the supercomputers 
as they related to new studies, 
computational projects and 
technological breakthroughs. 

"We are one of the few 
universities which provides access 
to supercomputers for faculty," 
SCRI Education Outreach 
Program employee Richard 
Skoonberg said. "It strengthens 
the University's ability to do 
research in the basic scientific 

The institute contained 
three high performance 
supercomputer systems, which 
included thousands of simple 
computers that simultaneously 
operated on the same problem. 
Another computer was the CRAY 
YMP which processed 264 
megabytes of memory. 

The diversity of the 
different branches of scientific 

research included theoretical high 
energy physics. Perhaps the most 
intriguing discovery of science at 
SCRI was the invention of SciAn, 
a three-dimensional animation 
package which allowed the 
computer viewer to visualize data. 
SciAn used millions of pieces of 
information to formulate pictures 
in which the user could rotate and 
highlight the objects on the 
screen. Many aspects of scientific 
study were improved tremendously 
as the visualization of 
thunderstorms from Doppler radar 
could be compared to actual data. 
The comparisons were made into 
better estimations of weather 

Research in Alzheimer's 
disease enabled scientists to 
visualize EEC brain wave patterns 
of Alzheimers patients and to 
compare them to those of normal, 
healthy people. This led to early 
diagnosis and treatment of the 
disease. SciAn was free to all 
researchers, businesses and 
universities and it was user- 

"Researchers using 
SciAn can open our eyes and 
minds to new visions of our world 
and beyond," SCRI video 
spokesperson Rick Dominguez 
said. "We at SCRI understand the 
need of putting new tools in the 
hands of researchers in the field." 

SCRI benefited the 
scientific community by providing 
a free summer workshop for high 
school science and math teachers 
during the summer. The seminar 
taught the teachers how to use the 
supercomputers in research and to 
develop computer examples for 
the use in high school science class 
rooms. The two week seminar was 
headed by computational

Former University President Dr. Dale Lick 
stands at attention during the Bells ot Hope 
Ceremony. Lick resigned his position in late 
August during the beginning of the fall 


As the new school year 
commenced in late August, many 
students were unaware of the 
administrative changes taking 
place at the University. The 
excitement of football season, fall 
rush and new classes left students 
with little time to keep up with 
local politics. 

Yet when the news hit 
Tallahassee that University 
President Dr. Dale Lick was 
applying for the presidency at 
Michigan State University, it 
captured the students' attention. 

After being the president 
of the University for only two 
years, Lick's resume went to his 
Michigan alma mater. This career 
move was a shock to all and it 
sparked much controversy within 
the University community. 

Lick withdrew from the 
campaign after a haunting remark 
he had made about black athletes 
in 1989 surfaced in Michigan. 
Although Lick apologized for the 
remarks, he had lost favor as a 
semifinalist for the presidential 

Back in Tallahassee, 
Lick's ordeal in Michigan came as a 
surprise to the Chancellor and 
Board of Regents, who supported 
and oversaw such positions as the 
presidency. From that point on 
Lick's presidency seemed to 
dissipate. While some people 
viewed Lick as a competent and 
active leader, others felt betrayed 
by the president's search for 
alternative employment. 

President Lick resigned 
on Aug. 31, after political 
controversy seemed to overpower 
the normal flow of administrative 
decisions and actions. The feelings 
were mixed as some felt that Lick 
was forced to resign. Others felt 
that his application at another 


school swayed his support locally. 

Regardless o( opinions 
and events, Lick's two-year term 
in office was eventful. He was 
noted for improving the 
University's race and gender 
diversity, including appointing the 
first female vice president. He also 
reached nearly halt of the $200 
million Capital Campaign five 
year goal. 

"I think that we're going 
to miss him. I think they've blown 
everything all out of proportion," 
senior Dave Azzarito said. "And I 
think we'll have to see if we can 
find someone comparable." 

The BOR appointed Dr. 
Bernie Sliger to be the interim 
president of the University until a 
new president was chosen. Sliger 
had served as the University's 
president for 14 years before Lick's 
presidency. Sliger's main 
objective during his short term was 
to continue the fund raising 
campaign that Lick had began. 
Sliger's experience as president 
provided a model for others to 

"A president has to have 
lots of energy, be able to read fast 
and delegate," Sliger said. 
"People's individual talents help as 
well, like being an economist or a 
history professor. Both would add 
different aspects to the job." 

During his stint as 
interim president, Sliger 
underwent major surgery for his 
cardiovascular heart disease. The 
operation was to bypass seven 
obstructed arteries around his 
heart. In addition he suffered a 
minor stroke during his surgical 

These events impaired 
Sliger's ability to immediately act 
as interim president, delaying the 
University fund raising yet again.

in to handle the administrative

as the resident or interim president

The search for a new 
president, although delayed, 
continued midway through the fall 
semester. Two committees were 
formed in order to help find and 
choose the new president, one 
being the Regents Selection 
Committee and the other the

The group was extremely 
diverse, with the likes of Carl

filling out the applications. 

By the end of November, 
the list of candidates was narrowed 


to 10. The candidates were

There was one 

National Championship 

story that circulated 

during the 1 993 season 

that didn't stem directly 

from the sports page. 

A joke had been 

passed around the 

Bowden homes. It spoke 

of a football coach that 

sold his soul to the devil 

for a national 

championship. When two 

of Bobby Bowden 's sons, 

supposedly went down to 

meet the devil and a cold 

breeze came from beyond 

the gate one son said to 

the other, "Well, dad must 

have won a national 

championship. " 

"Yeah it's got a 

chance to be a little cooler 

down there I guess, " 

Bowden said to the crowd 

as he gazed over the 

National Championship 

trophy in January.

Being captain of such a perfection

Jerome's schedule. She had no time for any

iVttempts to paint the Sigma Alpha Epsilon 
lion are only on part of the tradition and legend 
of the lion. Sophomore John Thomas painted 
the lion hack to its original white, after it was 
painted. Sororities were challenged by the 
fraternity during the year to try to paint the lion. 
If they were caught trying to paint the lion the 
ladies had to suffer the consequences.

While the houses are secured by security 
systems, such as the common Sonitrol system, 
there are other security concerns that the ladies 
have. Parking lots and the lighting of the 
grounds that surrounded the houses were among 
some of the other concerns that the ladies tried 
to address during the year. To help solve these 
problems, some hired security guards. 

An Alpha Gamma Delta sister uses the 
Sonitrol code to secure the house again for the 
night. Sonitrol was used in many of the Greek 
houses. The system required a code to be 
punched in to turn the alarm on and off during 
the school year while the houses were open with 
residents. During the summer the sorority 
houses were closed.

What happened after

remained a mystery. 
No one, except the 
fraternities or

knew the actual

Before rush even started the choice 
had been made as to which fraternity or sorority 
one would pledge. Therefore, rush became a 

system, yet whether or not a person had the right 
credentials and a good attitude was the ultimate 
deciding factor.

announced and presented after their initiation. 
The larger fraternities and sororities accepted 
anywhere from eight to twenty new pledges and 
the smaller chapters, around three to four. 

It was not an easy task to become a 
member of the PanGreek system. Although it 
was left up to each fraternity or sorority to decide 
what its qualification were, most wanted their 
pledges to be active in the community and most 
importantly good representatives. Some 
chapters even went so far as to request 
transcripts and GPA's. They wanted to be 
assured that the person they were accepting into 

their organization would not only be a lifetime 
member but also a loyal friend. 

"Becoming a member of Alpha Kappa 
Alpha sorority has been a tremendous growing- 
up experience for me; I have learned not only to 
think of myself, but to think of my sisters and my 
community," AKA sister Hilda Cenecharles 
said. "Knowing that I have so many sorority 
sisters that I can always depend on is a special gift 
that I am so grateful to have received. I hope my 
sorority sisters know that they can always 
depend on me as I know I can always depend on 

O tanding proudly, the line poses for a picture as 
new brothers. The brotherhood and sisterhood 
of these fraternitites and sororities lasted a 
lifetime. The selection process in the PanGreek 
system was initially placed in the hands of the 
individual rushee rather than the fraternity or 
sorority. Once initiations took place there were 
celebrations to welcome the new members.

Otepping has been a longtime tradition and 
way of introduction to the public for brothers. 
Not only was stepping a tradition, it was also a 
source of competition and colaboration 
between sorority and fraternity members. The 
annual Extrav was held in the fall and step shows 
were held throughout the year at various 
university functions.

"The lovely women at Phi Mu sorority house 
were nice enough to let us borrow their house for 
rush week," Golightly said. 

Thompson said they grabbed a barbecue grill 
every night during rush week and had members 
bring friends who were interested. 

Thompson said the interest group had close 
to 30 people come through rush and they had 
given out five bids for membership. Delta 
Upsilon's international headquarters required 
35 brothers tor an interest group to be 
recognized as a colony. 

"We would rather gain our charter with 

quality guys," Thompson said. "We aren't afraid 
to say no." 

Two aspects of AY that the interest group was 
capitalizing upon were its non-secret nature and 
multicultural diversity. 

Delta Upsilon has been non-secret since its 
inception in 1834. 

"Only 20 percent of the school is Greek. We 
want the ones that don't want to be Greek. We 
add a different facet by being a non-secret 
organization," Golightly said. 

The initiation ceremony was held in the 
spring and open to any one wishing to attend. 

IN ew members of Delta Upsilon pay close 
attention during the initiation ceremony. 
There were approximately 30 new brothers who

members had to go through to have recognition 
from the University.

of its kind on campus. The educational program 
was based on discussing only hazing. The 
program was in the form of a monologue. 

1 he one-man play, or monologue was 
performed by David Westol. The play depicteo 
a situation of hazing that has become all toe 
common across the country in many university

was said to have been very direct and clear, that 
hazing was everyone's problem and it was 
therefore everyone's responsibility to help

Held in October, the annual step show 
extravaganza was a heated competition for the 
Pan Greek organizations on campus. In this 
competition, the Pan Greek organizations 
competed by performing prepared routines, 

"It was an exciting feeling to be on stage with 
everyone watching," Delta Sigma Theta 
member Letitia Price said. 

Some began preparing for the Extrav some 
two months in advance, practicing for two or 

each of which was usually about fifteen minutes more hours everyday before the show, 
long. The routines included difficult stepping "When the music started, my adrenaline 

ability combined with rhythmic dancing ability, started pumping and I knew that I was ready," 

all tied together into one theme. Alpha Kappa Alpha member Jacqueline Spence 

"When the music

Themes varied 
according to the 
different routines that 
each organization 
performed. For 
example, Kappa

"Computer Love" as 
its theme and Delta

was "Delta Force."

"It's very rewarding to see the changes

to us what we give to them. This is 
what Chiefs is all ahout," member 
Becky Kroll said. 

Tradition was what made 
the Chiefs one of the most special 
clubs on campus. Tradition began 
during the tirst day of practice 
when each instrument section was 
introduced to its respective tree. 
The trees surrounding the practice 
field provided shelter during 
outdoor rehearsals. 

Each section also had a 
nickname and was rivaled with 
another section. The flutes, for 
example, otherwise known as the 
"pistols," were paired with the 
saxophones or "the bones." For 
the entire season, these two 
sections engaged in practical jokes 
and shared a bus on away games. 

There was also a tradition 
for the beginning of pregame and 
half-time. To incite life into the 
anxious marchers, the Chiefs 
began each show with "Ten Hut! 
Raise Hell!" and ended it with 
"Ten Hut! Ossse! Ossse!" 

The most distinct 
tradition among the chiefs, 
however, was the "Hymn to the 
Garnet and the Gold." Performed 
at the end of every game, the Chiefs 
put down their instruments, linked 
arms and sang, "Here's a hymn to 
the garnet and the gold ringing to 
the sky. Here's a hymn to the men 
and women bold, singing with 
heads held high..." 

As the music climaxed, 
tears escaped the tired performers. 
Whether the team proved 
victorious or not, the Marching 
Chiefs left with pride.

completely self-funded group that 
did everything themselves, which 
ranged from making repairs on the 
grounds to sewing their own 

The idea tor the Flying 
High Circus came from Jack 
Haskins hack in 1947. With the 
switch from an all-women's college 
to a coed institution, Haskins 
desired to coordinate an activity in 
which men and women could 
participate together. Haskins died 
in April 1993 but his wife, Betty, 
stayed involved and was kept 
informed of circus activities. Mrs. 
Haskins was introduced to the 
audience during one of the home 
shows during the spring season. 

After the season's home 
shows, the circus presented two 
awards to outstanding members. 
The Gil Aldrich award for the most 
valuable performer went to Scott 
Wright. The Jack Haskins award 
went to a student who still had time 
left in the circus. The students 
voted on who they felt contributed 
the most. The winner was Matt 

Members of the circus did 
more than just practice and 
perform together, they formed very 
close friendships. 

"The camaraderie and 
friendship is great," Chuck Crigler, 
said. "Circus is a unique 
opportunity and a lot of fun." 

Junior Kerri Price, who 
performed on the double trapeze, 
the bike for five and the Spanish 
web, said, "My favorite part of the 
circus is the unity. We really are 
like a family."

LGBSU also hosted the

of Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual student 
and youth organizations in the 
state of Florida. Founded at the

take place. 

"The University of 
Florida said they needed someone 
to pull together the conference 
because the people who were going 
to host it fell through," Kikta said. 

The organization also 
participated in many other events 
around the Tallahassee area 
including a food drive for Big Bend 
Cares, NAACP week, the Jewish 
Student Union Holocaust 
memorial and the multicultural 
potluck dinner with the Black 
Student Union. 

"The gay and lesbian 
community is in a very unique 
position," Kikta said. "My firm 
belief is for any of the minority 
groups to actually get their 
initiatives across, they have to 
work together. LGBSU is in a 
position to bring together all these 
minorities because we're involved, 
we're here in any one of these 
minority groups."

of the University's athletic

to "Just Say No" to drugs. 

"I was surprised when I

Another highlight tor the 
club was the AIDS Quilt's visit to 
Tallahassee in October. Due to 
Golden Key's high involvement in 
this program and activities related 
to AIDS education, members felt 
they were giving knowledge to

was tragically taken almost two 
months prior to the reception date. 
There to receive the "In

mother, maternal grandparents, 
sister and girlfriend. 

A treasured son, brother 
and friend, Molter was 
remembered for his academic 
achievements, for his love for life 
and his perseverance. 

"Matthew was a great 
inspiration to me and to all who 
were fortunate enough to have 
known him," Stefany Kachman, 
Molter's girlfriend, said. "I am very

Really? Or were women just simply 

Men-bashing became a hot new 
trend during the 90's. According to 
some, with the emergence of politically 
correct terminology and explosion of new 
minority privileges, the typical white 
American male simply did not stand a 

"As a white male you really have to 
watch what you say around some women. 
Even though I am as far from being a 
chauvinist as possible, I feel like some 
women are just waiting for me to say 
something sexist or piggish," senior Chris 
Lambeth said. 

From "Sally Jessy Raphael" in the 
a.m. to "Oprah" in the afternoon, almost 
every talk show featured something on 
related topics. The tube presented 
episodes that slandered men for 
numerous crimes ranging from the very 
serious issue of rape to the way guys 
handled breakups. 

Was the amount of negative 
attention deserved? The answer 
depended on who you asked. 

"Men-bashing is a futile attempt by 
females to re-inspire the ideas of 
feminism," Kyle Moss, a junior 
communication major, said. 

"It's so petty. If that's all they can 
come up with, then it doesn't bother me," 
Moss said. 

"I believe that most women are not 
feminists, they really just want equality 
for all. Perhaps men who think women 
are always harping on them don't 
understand the struggles women have 
gone through," junior Kathy Heubush 

"Even in today's modern society 
there are still so many signs of racism, 
sexism and inequality. Women just don't 
keep quiet any more," Huebush said. 

The debate raged on.

Though the statute was long in 
coming, smokers were stunned when the 
Florida Clean Air Act went into effect in 
the fall, banning all smoking in Florida's 
educational institutions. 

The Act officially became effective on 
Oct. 1, 1992 and smoking was prohibited 
in any university facility. However, 
University officials were under the 
impression that student residential 
facilities would be unaffected. This did not 
turn out to be true after the HRS analysis 
clarified the definition of an "educational 
facility." There were to be no smoking in 
any building owned or leased by the 
University. With this delay in the 
comprehensive definition, the statute did 
not go into motion until fall 1993. 

Various opinions surrounded the 
controversy of the Clean Air Act and its 
influence upon campus. Primarily, student 
smokers in residential halls had the 
greatest impact. 

Non-smokers held their own 
opinions, detailing the experience when 
living in residential halls. 

"It bothered all of us non-smokers 
having smokers being able to smoke in the 
dorms. It was a nuisance and the smell was 
so obvious," Brenna Coyne, a junior 
physics major, said, recalling when she 
lived in a dorm her first two years. 

The Act was proposed for the 
protection of non-smokers from secondary 
smoke, which studies have proved could be 
harmful to others. Not all smokers were 
distraught over the new ordinance. David 
Rowland, a freshman business major, 
believed that the statute was only 
"courteous" for others and that even 
though he had been inconvenienced by 
having to smoke outside, it was only right. 

The Act influenced everyone, 
including the faculty. 

"It doesn't bother me much about the 
Act. In fact, I think it is for a good cause 
but perhaps a bit annoying having to go 
outside to smoke in the middle of doing 
work," professor Gretchen Thies said.

HIV/AIDS was a national epidemic; 
it was a worldwide epidemic. It was 
effecting, among others, young adults in 
the primes of their lives. 

On the University's campus, 
Thagard Student Health Center 
responded to a need for appropriate testing 
for the HIV/AIDS virus. During the 1994 
spring semester a pilot test was started to 
help students find out if they were HIV/ 
AIDS positive in a confidential manner 
and at a low cost. 

The testing was only $5 as opposed to 
$ 1 5 and the results were kept confidential 
only for the tested student's knowledge. 

The first step in the testing was the 
payment in which the student received a 
receipt with their transaction number on 
it. This transaction number became their 
identification number. 

The patient made an appointment 
and then was counseled by a professional. 
The patient's name and social security 
number were taken down on an index card 
for counseling purposes and kept locked 
when not used. 

After the counseling was done the 
patient had the blood taken. The nameless 
test result were then given to the nurse to 
give to the counselors. 

If the test results were positive or 
indeterminate, a Western Blot would be 
done to confirm results. The final test 
results were given verbally to the student 
and all information was kept confidential. 

This confidentiality was the key 
difference between the present testing 
provided and the past HIV/AIDS testing 
given at the health center. 

"We will continue the nameless 
testing if at all possible," Dr. Jan Daly, 
director of the Thagard Student Health 
Center, said. "The nameless testing will 
keep all information available to only the 
tested student and help us better serve the 

The pilot test that the health center 
provided helped students to obtain HIV/ 
AIDS testing at a low cost while also trying 
to keep testing confidential.

As seniors struggled through their 
final semester of school, they tried to 
remind themselves of the importance of 
their degree. They would no longer have to 
bartend until the wee hours of the morning 
or work as sales clerk at the mall on 

"I looked forward to making money 
at a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job," 
senior Sherry Baker said. "But when I 
finished school, I couldn't seem to find that 
job. Everyone seemed to want experience 
that I couldn't possibly have already." 

Unfortunately, many graduating 
seniors experienced similar 
disappointment. Graduates eagerly 
circulated resumes to numerous businesses 
and institutions but most received the 
standard letter of "thank you for your 
interest but we have no openings at this 
time." Although the job prospects were 
grim, graduates did have several choices. 

One option was to return to school; 
some graduates felt that a higher degree 
would increase the likelihood of securing a 
job. Others did not have further education 
as an option. An alternative to returning 
to school was relocation to another city or, 
in most cases, another state. While 
Florida's economy was not prospering, 
other areas of the country had more 
favorable job markets. Graduates who 
were more willing to relocate were more 
likely to find a job in their field of study 
than those who limited themselves to a 
particular area. 

"I am moving home to New Jersey for 
a job," senior Mike Masterman-Smith said. 
"However, it's difficult to leave everything 
I have here." 

Many graduates who did not return 
to school or relocate chose to take any job 
until a better one surfaced. Many people 
could not withstand months of 
unemployment and they continued to send 
out resumes and read the help wanted ads. 

"It took me almost a year to find the 
job I was looking for. You have to have a lot 
of patience and never stop trying," alumnus 
Tracey Gunter-Rosen said.

"I just want to be your friend." 

Those were the fatal words that 
everyone dreaded hearing but so often had 
to say to others. The topic of men and 
women being friends boggled mankind 
and has even been the topic of movies such 
as When Harry Met Sally. 

"I think men and women can just be 
friends," freshman Wendi Garfinkel said. 
"Jason and I are really close and we see each 
other as brother and sister. I think the 
closer the friendship is, the more a person 
just wants friendship." 

Most likely, during the course of a 
college career, a person must tell another 
they had no interest in a relationship. 
Senior Ben Beasley had to tell a girl he just 
wanted to be friends after he realized they 
had nothing in common. 

"There was a girl I was interested in last 
semester but I realized we had nothing in 
common," Beasley said. "She would 
change her opinion toward mine even if 
she didn't believe in what she was saying. 
Even after I told her I didn't want to date 
her she would call me, ask for a wrong 
number and then ask me how school was 
doing. It was like a fatal attraction. I think 
men and women can be friends but as a guy, 
there will always be an attraction deep 
down inside. Maybe the guy will never 
pursue it but there will always be a slight 

"Guys can be friends with girls but I 
found out it was usually because they didn't 
work out as a couple. There was a guy I 
dated for a while but we still kept in touch 
even after I left for school. We are just 
friends now but it's weird because he will 
tell me about the girls he likes. It's awkward 
because I was the girl he used to talk about 
to his friends and now I'm the friend he 
talks to about his girlfriends." 

Best friends or lovers; sometimes it was 
hard to differentiate. At one point of life 
students found themselves just wanting a 
platonic relationship while at others they 
were looking to find a soul mate. 

"I think best friends would make the 
best marriages," Beasley said.

It was amazing how much of a stir 
could be caused by an obnoxious pair of 
pre-pubescent boys. Beavis and Butthead's 
controversial MTV cartoon and music 
video show either offended students or 
gave them something different to look 
forward to on late night TV programming. 
Beavis and Butthead were two 
underweight, braced-faced, sexually 
frustrated American boys who grossed-out 
viewers by picking their noses, by obsessing 
over bodily functions and by generally 
being crude. 

"I think they are extremely 
offensive," junior Shannon Hopkins said. 
"They are a waste of TV air space. Who 
wants to watch two boys belch for a half an 

Regardless of opinion, the influence 
they had effected the campus. Whether 
you heard a guy in your class imitating their 
distinguishable laugh or you owned a 
Seminole Beavis and Butthead t-shirt, 
evidence of the cartoon was everywhere. 

"Miami sucks," the personalized 
University t-shirts read. 

"Yeh, yeh... Seminoles are cool" was 
the reply. 

"I can't believe that educated people 
wear t-shirts displaying them, they are so 
asinine," junior Ann Kemper said. "But I 
guess it's just a trend that will hopefully 
pass quickly." 

Perhaps the reason why college 
students found the cartoon so entertaining 
was because it was a reminder of their own 
high school days. Whether you were a 
Beavis, a Butthead or just knew and 
despised one, the cartoon hit home. Some 
male students identified with after-school 
days of eating junk food, watching videos 
and getting into mischievous trouble. 

"My friends and I look forward to 
seeing the show because it is a hysterical 
amplification of what it was like to be 
immature, reckless and hated by most 
adults," junior Greg Rheders said. "The 
show is simply a social documentary of the 
way some boys grow up in our society." 

"Uh, huh uh uh.. .school sucks."

The fifth annual Women as 
Leaders Conference was an opportunity 
for the female students of the University 
to participate in and learn about the latest 
issues concerning women leaders. The 
conference theme was "Traditions from 
the Past, Shaping the Future" and it 
focused on the diverse roles modern 
women play. The University sponsored 
conference, organized by students, was 
free to all interested students. 

"The conference was a great 
opportunity for the students not only to 
plan but also to participate in learning 
from other people," Advisor Barbara 
Prevost said. 

The conference consisted of three 
different tracks in which participants 
could choose which three lectures she 
wanted to attend. The lectures ranged 
from various topics such as "Gender 
Communications in the Workplace" to 
"Images of Women on Campus." After 
each lecture the conference participants 
were able to discuss the topics further in a 
question and answer period with the 

"I was happy how a lot of the 
participants questioned and utilized the 
speakers for their knowledge and all that 
they had to offer," Chairwoman Kandi 
Kelly said. 

The three tracks were followed by a 
luncheon and lecture with keynote 
speaker Julie Montanaro, an 
anchorwoman from WCTV Channel 6. 
Karen Moore, president and owner of 
Moore Consulting Group, lead the 
closing session with a lecture on 
"Marketing Yourself to get the Job you 
Want." Moore gave helpful tips on the 
interviewing and networking skills 
needed to land a job. 

"The Conference was such a 
wonderful experience. Not only was it a 
lot of fun but also very informative," 
sophomore Amber Dennie said. "I 
walked away with so much useful 
knowledge about finding a job and just 
being a modern woman."

Some may remember the quick 
and easy diets of the seventies and 
eighties. The grapefruit diet, diet pills 
and books like Thin is In were the 
beginning of what formed current views 
on personal weight and the American 
idea of beauty in the nineties. 

"It's hard to be a young women 
and not feel the pressure to look thin," 
junior Kimberly Woodard said. 

So called "waif models" covered 
the pages of catalogs and magazines, the 
screens of televisions and adorned the 
runways all over the world. 

As the ultra thin look became 
more and more popular there was once 
again a rise in unhealthy weight loss. 
Designers, such as Calvin Klein, were 
belived to have accentuated the problem 
by employing the models that seemed to 
fall into this category. 

"Some people may call me old 
fashioned, but I like a little meat on the 
bones," junior Paul Schamoun said. "Too 
thin is very unattractive to me, and I tell 
my sister when she starts in on her weight 
to just relax, because guys don't want you 
too too thin." 

As a result of the popularity of 
thinness increased, so did the cases of 
eating disorders. Bulimia, or the binge- 
purge syndrome, and anorexia, self 
starvation plagued campuses across the 
country and all over the world. 

On campus, the problem 
became so noticeable that Thagard 
Health Center opened a nutritional 
counseling center and offered support 
groups for the victims of eating disorders. 

Signs of eating disorders were 
nervousness, fatigue, excessive obsession 
with eating or weight, hair loss, gray tones 
to the skin and, most obviously, weight 

"I had a friend that I had always 
suspected had a problem and I later found 
out that she was diagnosed during her 
sophomore year," junior Melanie 
Masiello said. "I'm glad she got help here 
at the University."

The M.R.S. Degree was not a degree 
that was recognized by the board of regents 
or by the president of any university. There 
were also no official classes to take. The 
only thing that was needed was for Ms. 
Right to meet Mr. Right and for "the 
question" to be popped before they officially 
graduated. (The question where, as 
tradition would have it, the guy gets down 
on one knee to ask the girl for her hand in 

Some students came to school for the 
sole purpose of finding Mr. or Mrs. Right. 
Their main objective while in college was to 
leave married. 

"Sure, I'm looking for a husband," 
junior Shannon Hopkins said. "My parents 
always told me 'never date a guy you would 
not marry.' I took them literally." 

The M.R.S. Degree was also known as 
being married right out of college. The job 
as a housewife was guaranteed and could be 
taken by itself or combined with the career 
world. In the day of the career woman and 
Hillary Rodham Clinton, standing by a 
man was an idea that had became somewhat 
obsolete. However, meeting Mr. or Ms. 
Right was the beginning of a new life 
together with someone one loves and not to 
be considered as an ending to a career. 

"Since I have become engaged I have 
become more focused on my studies and I 
find myself studying harder and making 
better grades than before I was engaged," 
junior Tracy Hammer. 

Planning a wedding and trying to 
juggle school took careful time 
management especially if the M.R.S. 
Degree came unexpectantly while 
obtaining a Bachelor's or Master's degree. 
Some people found the M.R.S. Degree as a 
positive incentive to college rather than the 
negative connotation that sometimes 
accompanies the saying "Mrs. Degree". 

"I've been teased about getting my 
M.R.S. Degree but I just see it as getting a 
double degree and only having to pay for 
one," junior Ann Kemper said. "I'm getting 
the best of both the career and the domestic

The first date was often a time to 
make a great impression on the other 
person. Whether you wanted to wine and 
dine him or her or just go to a movie, there 
was always the pressure to make yourself 
appear available and irresistible. 

To some making a good impression 
depended on spending lots of money. This 
presented a problem for most college 
students, however, who did not have large 

"When I take a girl out for the first 
time I would love to be able to take her to 
a really nice place," freshman Michael 
Nesser said. "Yet how can I when I can 
barely afford to feed myself?" 

Other students took more casual 
attitudes about the expensive dating 
dilemma. Some did not see the need to 
spend an unusually large amount of cash. 

Some students viewed spending 
excessive amounts of money on a date as 
impractical. With most all dating 
prospects also being in college, extra 
money was not necessarily lying around 
waiting to be spent. A nice, casual dinner 
and maybe a movie seemed to be a happy 
medium for all. 

"I would never expect to be taken out 
to the most expensive restaurant in town, 
on a first date," junior Chris Perkins said. 
"The more casual, the more comfortable. 
Besides, I don't know one person in college 
who has the money to throw around on 
trying to impress someone." 

For those couples who made it 
beyond the first date, having a small budget 
did not seem to be as much of a problem. 
Some couples, once established found 
going dutch or taking turns treating to be 
very comfortable. 

It took pressure off of one partner 
constantly providing the funds for fun. In 
addition some couples enjoyed just renting 
a movie or cooking dinner together. 

"Some of the best times my boyfriend 
and I have spent together have been just 
watching a movie and snuggling on the 
couch," junior Shannon Hopkins said.

Jack Clark has been on the University's campus for nearly 
five years. He came here in 1969 from the New Jersey area, after 
a stint on a milk route. Every day, except in severe weather, 
Clark could be found at his hot dog stand, making friends with 
the students and faculty while serving up nourishment. 

Clark's history was as diverse as his menu items. Upon 
arriving in Florida, "with four sons, a cat, dog and a wife," Clark 
discovered that his steam boiler's license was useless. Jobs were 
already taken by others coming into the state so he worked at 
Morgan Yacht Co. as a laborer for the Disney submarines and 

When Clark's wife became unemployed, his wife and son 
chipped in and his pride and joy, Relish the Thought, was born. 
After working on corners, simple research led him to sell at the 
University. Interestingly, Clark was one of the first independent 
vendors to come to campus in quite a while. 

Clark's combination of Shofar hot dogs, lively chatter with 
customers and opinionated politics was what made Relish the 
Thought the cozy corner between Strozier and Bellamy. 

Clark said that the strangest things people did to their hot 
dogs were lining the dog with dots of mustard and twirling 
everything around in the bun. But, Clark confided, the best part 
of his job was that he would do whatever combinations his 
customers want. 

Clark described the students as "great," and said that he 
admired the diversity here. 

"Nothing's free, you've got to work for it," Clark said. 

It was his policy and advice for students.

Many students enjoyed getting away from the usual 
places of treacherous and time-consuming study which usually 
included the library, the dorm room, the apartment or the 
sorority house. They wanted to go to a place that was different, 
a place where "everybody knows your name. ..and they're always 
glad you came." So they went to The Kettle, a local greasy spoon 
on North Monroe. 

After searching quite a while for a place that would 
allow students to spread out their books and get comfortable, a 
few students discovered The Kettle and put their claim on the 

"The Kettle was nice because we could drink and eat to 
keep us awake," Kim Berg said. "They don't allow us to eat food 
in the library and we could talk a lot more at a restaurant." 

Some students liked The Kettle because it was a change 
in atmosphere. Aside from being able to eat and study The 
Kettle was open all night long. For some this was a bonus since 
the library closed nearly after midnight and the dorms provided 
the temptation to go to bed. 

"It was a better environment than the dorm to study 
in," Melanie Nasiello said. "And it kept you up all night long." 

Some restaurant studiers said they thought The Kettle 
was a nice, neutral place to meet outside the classroom if you did 
not know people in your classes very well. However, everyone 
seemed to know each other at The Kettle as there were many 

"There were some distractions but everyone left you 
alone to study unless you wanted to have a study break," Laura 
Koehler, a regular at The Kettle, said. 

Sadly, The Kettle closed its doors in 1993, as they had 
lost too much money. Perhaps the students had studied too 
much and not eaten enough. At least the coffee was good.

During the summer, students were sent a pamphlet 
from the University housing office. This pamphlet included a 
description of the residence halls, information regarding air 
conditioning, the prices and, most importantly, a questionnaire 
about their living habits. 

Some students requested to room with someone they 
were already acquainted with while others assumed that the 
questionnaire would automatically place them in a room with 
their perfect match. 

"I get along great with my roommate and we always 
work out together in the Leach Center," freshman Aaron 
Woodie said. 

However, this was not always the case. While the 
housing office did their best to accommodate each and every 
student, not every student was satisfied with their roommates. 

Roommate difficulties often began when mates of the 
opposite sex started staying over and inconveniencing the other 
roommate. The visitation rights in each residence hall varied 
and some students chose to disobey the rules altogether. 

"I spent all year arguing and literally fist-fighting with 
my roommate," freshman Marc Favreau said. 

Rooming situations that were unsuccessful usually also 
proved very hurtful, as horrible insults were easily tossed around. 
Sometimes it ended with fines or in court with the judicial 

"I really disliked my roommate because there was a 
conflict oi interest and so I just moved out," sophomore Karen 
Guilbeaux said. 

In order to get along with roommates, students soon 
realized that compromise needed to be established and 
practiced. It also proved to be a good lesson in learning to accept 
that which was different from what you knew, a useful skill in 
today's world. When students left home and moved on to 
college, they eventually came across someone whom they did 
not particularly care for. Living situations were much easier if 
both roommates respected the other person's rights and

After returning from New Orleans, a 
student shows off her heads that she 
g ot at Mardi Gras. 

Cars adorned with shoe polish reading "New Orleans 
Bound" lined the highway. 

A sense of excitement filled the air as I- 10 led into the 
historic city. As the traffic grew thicker, the electricity in the 

air reached into the 
back seats of the 
crowded cars luring 
passengers into the 
state of restlessness. 
The experience of 
Mardi Gras finally 

Contrary to 
popular belief, Mardi 
Gras was actually a 
religious holiday. In 
French it meant "Fat 
Tuesday" and it was 
the last day of 
festivities before Ash Wednesday, which marked the arrival of 
the fasting days of Lent. Ash Wednesday was preceded by two 
weeks of parades and parties. 

"It was a great time to let loose and be free of any 
inhibitions," junior Stephanie Bortz said. "I didn't worry about 
anything. I just let the crowd carry me." 

Most people were mainly concerned with coming across 
their next drink, finding an available bathroom and of course, 
getting the traditional Mardi Gras beads. 

"I couldn't believe the things people were doing just to get 
plastic beads," sophomore Paul Lederman said. "When they 
were thrown off the floats, people suddenly turned into savages." 
Mardi Gras drew such an immense crowd that many people 
could be found sleeping in cars, on the sidewalk or wherever the 
night brought them. 

"Last year I ended up sleeping on a park bench," junior 
Thomas Sterges said. "So this year we made reservations a year 
in advance. The Fairmont Hotel proved to be a definite setup." 
As the experience of Mardi Gras came to an end, the cars 
once again lined the highway. Stories of the weekend faded into 
memories until only the sound of beads dangling from the rear 
view mirror could be heard.

Meeting people was not a problem for students at the 
University. There were numerous places on campus to make 
friends, such as the Union, Landis Green or in class. Local bars 
and dance clubs were also popular "pick up" sites. However, 
many students tired of the familiar scenes and faces and looked 
elsewhere for friends and dates. 

"I met girls at the laundromat," junior Dave Merenstien 
said. "It wasn't intentional but I noticed other students were 
there so I took advantage of it." 

Since the majority of students rented apartments or lived 
on campus, they were without the luxury of a personal washer 
and dryer. Many students frequented laundromats but some 
admitted it was not the place to find an ideal date. 

"My friends and I usually did laundry in the middle of the 
night," senior Michelle David said. "There were the strangest 
people out at that time. I would not consider dating anyone I'd 
met there." 

Besides looking for dates, students reported doing a 
variety of tasks at the laundromat. Some completed home work 
assignments, wrote letters or listened to their walkman. 

"I spent most of my time digging around the bottom of my 
purse and through all of my dirty clothes pockets looking for 
another quarter," senior Melanie Leaman said. "I never had 
enough quarters." 

Another favorite activity for laundromat-goers was 
people watching. Doing several loads of laundry took an hour 
or two, so there was plenty of time to observe others. 

"It was a pain loading up soap and all my baskets full of 
dirty clothes and heading to the laundromat," junior Wendy 
Exely said. "But I never came home in a bad mood. Every trip 
was a unique experience."

For the first time ever, the University divided up the 
spring graduation ceremonies. Instead of the traditional 
Saturday morning ceremony, University officials decided to add 
a Friday night service as well. About 2,600 students were 
expected to participate in the graduation ceremonies, enabling 
half to graduate on Friday and the other half on Saturday. This 
came as good news to most students and their families as the 
traditional ceremony was known to be very long and 
monotonous. The actual process of naming the graduates was 
cut in half. 

"It was certainly better having the two ceremonies. Even 
though it was still long it didn't seem as long as it used to," 
graduating senior Laura Koehler said. "Everybody seemed to be 
a lot more relaxed and happy." 

The break-up in the graduation ceremony also enabled 
each student to have more admission tickets for family and 
friends. Many times students had been unable to find enough 
tickets for their guests with the traditional graduation. 

"Students now get eight tickets instead of the usual four. 
This is wonderful, now we can bring more family or even 
grandparents and other extended family," graduating senior 
Christine Guard said. 

Perhaps the greatest benefit of having two graduation 
celebrations was the increased availability of hotels throughout 
Tallahassee during graduation weekend. With one ceremony 
on Friday night, many students' relatives only needed to stay in 
town the one night, leaving hotels on Saturday night open for 
the other half. 

"My parents and grandparents saw me graduate because 
they were able to reserve a hotel room. Hotels didn't seem to be 
as overbooked with the new graduation policy," graduating 
senior Tara Hopkins said.

Last year the University renewed its contract with 
Marriott Food Services, enabling the addition of quality and 
convenience to food service on campus. For the past 1 5 years 
Marriott had served the University through a cafeteria-type 
restaurant in the Union, yet it became apparent that students 
wanted more food choices and better quality. Starting last 
August the renovation and completion of all food services 
additions would take about three years. 

"It was time for a change. As we change in this new decade 
our eating habits change too," retail manager of Marriott 
Anthony Zariv said. "Students want better value and better 
food. We can provide that." 

The first changes last year occurred in what was the Union 
Cafe'. Now named Crossroads Cafe', a new decor greeted the 
students as well as a Lucy Ho Oriental buffet. In the Downunder 
in the Union Rally's fast-food restaurant was added in 
underneath The Wild Pizza. Across the campus in the William 
Johnston Building Subcity replaced the old Trading Post, 
enabling students in the dorms on that side of campus to eat. 

Perhaps the biggest change in food service last year came 
in the form of the Tradewinds' Pavilion. The new food court was 
located in the empty spaces in the Union. The three additions 
included: Carlos Peppers, a Mexican fast-food restaurant like 
Taco Bell, The Bagel Basket bagel and sandwich shop and a 
TCBY. The Pavilion received much business during the year as 
students found the restaurants to be more convenient. 

"I don't live on campus and normally I don't spend much 
time here, had all these new places been here before, maybe I 
would have," senior Stephanie Snowden said. 

By fall of 1995 Marriott Food Services will have 
completed their additions to the campus. In the new University 
Center at the Doak Campbell Stadium a full food court 
including Pizza Hut and Miami Subs will be opened. The 
Seminole Food Court will replace the existing Union bookstore, 
and an ACC sports bar will be located above the Food Court. 

"It's time they gave students what students want," senior 
Randy Locke said. "It's great that they will allow students to 
have more say in what they have available to eat."

The buzz words at the University were to be "politically 
correct." Administrators and students have taken notice of the 
attitudinal barriers that existed on campus and made positive 
changes throughout the University. 

Staff, faculty and students with disabilities have made 
tremendous headway in advocating their rights. For example, 
they were no longer labeled as "handicapped students" but as 
"students with disabilities," which put the focus on the student 
rather than the disability. Efforts were made to include students 
with disabilities in all campus activities, from participation in 
organizations to attending athletic events and academic 
programs. The University was working to comply with the 
ADA and make reasonable accommodations for everyone, 
including architectural renovations and academic provisions. 

"It is the goal of ODSS to assure that FSU does not deny 
access to any student with a disability in any programs or 
services," Director Robin Leach said. 

One of the projects aimed for inclusion of students with 
disabilities with other services provided by the University was 
the Coalition for Careers. 

"Dignity and respect, that's what everyone wants," project 
manager Jim Costello said. 

CFC worked to empower individuals to be independent and 
to utilize the resources the Career Center had to offer. 

Dr. Stephen Leirer, a graduate of the University and a 
counseling psychologist, said that politically correct language 
was a part of a bigger issue of appreciating diversity. 

"The way to appreciate diversity is to accept other people for 
who they are- their culture, background, disability, speech, race, 
creed, national origin, gender-whatever makes them unique," 
Leirer said. "To see all the colors in a sunset, that's what 
appreciating diversity means."

The picture below was not a double exposure or a 
photographic trick, rather it was a picture of a set of twins, Kevin 
and Keith Carr. 

The Carr brothers were not new faces to campus. Both 
brothers received the bachelor of science degree in criminology 
in summer of 1990 and now they both were back to receive their 
master's degree. This time around both degrees were in public 
administration with a slight variety. Kevin received his M.A. in 
public administration and policy and Keith received his M.A. in 
public administration — state and government. 

The slight variety showed that even though they were twins, 
they were individuals first. Their mother was the person 
responsible for putting such a strong emphasis on being 
individuals. Even though growing up their clothes were the 
same style they were always a different color. Even now they did 
not shop together, because they always seemed to want the same 

"Mom would always say to us that we were special because we 
were individuals first and second because we happened to be 
twins," Kevin Carr said. 

"Mom went so far as to make sure that each birthday both of 
us had our own cake. It was never 'Happy Birthday Kevin and 
Keith'. It was always separate," Keith Carr said. 

With their mother instilling such strong values it was no 
wonder that when asked who their idle was, both had the same 
answer, "mom". 

"Mom is my idol because of her strength and how well she 
used her resources," Kevin said. "She is an inspiration to me 
because she raised four kids by herself." 

Even with their strong sense of being individuals it was 
impossible to overlook the fact that they were twins. The 
similarities did not stop with looks, as they also had the same 
mannerisms and voices. They even shared the same hobbies — 
travel, art, cooking and music. Kevin played the drums and 
Keith played the trombone and tuba. Their different choices of 
instruments helped tell them apart while they were in the 
Marching Chiefs.

Over the years the twins have been able to keep everything in 
perspective; they attribute a lot of this to their mother.

Whether taking a study break of just trying to cool off 
from the Tallahassee heat, many students headed out to the 
local yogurt stores. In the past few years, frozen yogurt has 
become a staple for college students who were looking for a cool 
and delicious alternative to ice cream's high fat and calories. 

"I can eat frozen yogurt without feeling the guilt of 
eating real ice cream," freshman Allison Woosley said. "I even 
think it tastes better than ice cream." 

The local yogurt stores seemed to do most of their 
business during the evening hours after dinner. Looking into the 
windows of I Can't Believe It's Yogurt or The Country's Best 
Yogurt, one could see students standing in line or relaxing in the 

"I go get yogurt when I'm studying for tests. It keeps me 
up," junior Bridgid Binder said. "It's also a ritual, my friends and 
I go get yogurt every Thursday before 'Seinfeld' comes on." 

Last year the University broadened its food service to 
the students by opening up two yogurt stores on campus. One 
was located in the Leach Recreational Center and one was in the 
Union. In addition South Gate Campus Center opened up a 
TCBY. The three yogurt stores were located at opposite ends of 
campus so students could stop on their way to classes or after a 
work-out at the Leach Center. 

However, there were some students that were not 
willing to let go of the old fashioned ice cream flavor. 

"I don't see what the big deal about yogurt is. I like real 
ice cream," senior Scott Broughton said. "Getting toppings like 
cookies or M&M's is the only way to cover up that weird, funky 
yogurt flavor." 

Whether you were an adapted frozen yogurt fan or a 
traditional ice cream lover, the yogurt craze was here to stay.

Yogurt Craze 285

286 Year in Review 

e we were 

television generation, the influence 
of the media was inescapable. We 
were overwhelmed hy headlines, 

vivid pictures and "tabloid 


In the fall the largest story 
on the local level was our search for 
a University president. Globally a 

sigh of relief was felt as the PLC 
and Israel reached peace. Winter 

holidays brought with them tin 


t that the NFL 


place the next team, the Jaguars, in 
Jacksonville. In February, Pi Kappa 
Alpha left campus for good after an 

April, Danny Rolling face 

for the 1990 slaying of five UF 
students. We also joined the work 
in mourning the loss of former 
President Richard Nixon. 

While it was sometimes 

hard to read between the 1 

; lines, 

usually there really was a story that 
effected us all, hidden beneath the 

gloss and sensationalism. Once 

again the sum proved to be greater 
than the whole.

ges Turn... 

I can honestly say that this year has been absolutely nothing like I 
expected it would be. Both the good and the bad have made me realize 
that nothing can be a one person endeavor. The seventh edition of the 
Renegade was produced by student effort alone. I would like to be able to 
say that there was support elsewhere, but with few exceptions, I can't. 
People that have never done "this" before have no idea what goes into the 
production of a collegiate yearbook. There is nothing else like it. After 
college, I hope we get paid better (or at all - in most cases). 

What I am trying to say is that the following people not only deserve 
my thanks, but yours as well. This book is a gift of their time and talent. 

Rebecca, this book is a part of you too, because it was your words of 
encouragement and understanding that were just what I needed over this 
past year. You gave this University a gift of your time and talent seven 
years ago and I thank you for that. 

I would like to thank the many writers that without there would be 
a ton of 'fashionable white space'. Regina, Betsy, Eric, Denise, Jamie and 
Travis, thank you so much for your hard work and for always taking one 
or two extra stories so we could get this thing done. 

If it hadn't have been for the abundance of pictures this year there 
would still be that 'cosmopolitan white space'. Alissa, Keith, Eric, thanks 
for all the running around you did. The pictures are beautiful. 

Heather, thank you so much for staying with us. The section is 

Emily, I left the torch of knowledge that Amy gave me in the center 
drawer of the desk. Good luck next year - I know it'll be great. 

Steve, I hope you have a great senior year. I can't believe you came 
back after all we put you through last year. Whatever your reason, I'm glad 
you did. 

Ayanna, you're one of the most hard working people I have ever 
known. I have complete faith in your abilities. You'll go far no matter 
which one of your paths you choose, good luck on getting out of here. 

Nancy, well, we certainly have seen the best and the worst in each 
other. The fact that we still speak amazes me (and some others). Thank 
you for your time and words when things weren't looking their best. 

Todd, (aka bitter boy) you will always be my favorite "realist". 
Although you sometimes try to hide your optimistic side, we all know that 
it's there (well maybe). I wish you all the best in D.C. You're an incredible 
writer and you will go far. Hey, don't let that place corrupt you any more 
than this place did. Say 'hi' to Bill and Hill for me. 

Vanessa Penelope, the pictures and the laughter made the stressful 
days a little bit easier to bear. Friday nights will never be the same (who's 
going to cook now?) 

Jennie, it seems like a 100 years ago that we moved you into 
Gilchrist. It seems like 50 more since we walked the Spartan track in the 
rain to get our diploma from Mrs. Broughton. That night I had no idea 
that you would become such a big part of my life. I'm grateful for the years 
since then, and I am thankful for the beautiful work you did on this book. 
You have incredible talents and should be extremely proud of your ability 

as a writer. ...I think you only wrote twenty or so stories... 

Kristin, (aka Special K) I am so glad that we were able to leave 
everything in the past, because I don't know what I would do without you 
these past years. You have been there to remind me that when the world 
gets to be too much there is someone out there who has been where I am 
and they care enough to ease the load. 

Robert, well you may have taken the torch from Dana and passed it 
on to Amy (who later practically threw it at me) but I am sure that you 
didn't expect to be the one to stop me from tossing the torch into Wescott 
fountain last fall. Thanks for telling me that everything would be okay, 
even when I know you weren't too sure that you meant it. 

Amy, oh - I'm sorry THE Amy Shinn, I finally have something to 
put on my coffee table. ..a year ago I don't think any of us believed it would 
ever end, any of it. I loved hating every minute of the 'summer from hell' 
with you. It was all worth it when your book came in and it will still be 
worth long after this one comes in too. These pages have little pieces of 
all of us and we will always have that, no matter where we scatter across 
the country. 

Dody, I can't tell you what simply knowing that you were on my side 
has meant to me over the years. As we close these chapters (no pun 
intended), I will always look back and smile for the times that were spent 
in the tiny office at the end of the hall. Amy with her scissors in her hand 
and you and I sitting on the floor eating our Taco Bell, trying to create 
photos for the organizations. There were days that tested all of us. In the 
end I am better, and stronger, for having been through it. Life is full of 
miracles and sometimes you had to remind me of that. I'm glad we were 
able to celebrate some of those miracles together. I wish you and Jim all 
the love in this life. 

I'm glad I shared this book and this time with all of you. 

On a personal note I would like to thank my family, all of my families. 
They range from St. Petersburg to Cincinnati and scattered places in 

Tracy Ann Hammer Towle (I had to put all the names), thanks for 
being such a good roommate last summer and not killing Amy or me. I 
wish you and Bryan all the happiness in the world as you begin your life 
together. Hey Bryan, don't forget your cheerleaders. 

Ann, thanks for putting up with the 'Y-word' for the past few years. 
You're a wonderful friend and I'm thankful that you're a part of my life. 

Mom, thanks for supporting me no matter what I have chosen to do 
these past few years. I know sometimes I was a handful but you always let 
me make my own mistakes. Thank you for all your patience. 

Grandma and Grandpa, I would like to dedicate all of the work that 
I did on this book to you. You are two of the most important people in my 
life. You both have always taught me that with hard work, and love for 
that work, you will never fail. You two are the voice inside that has always 
told me to keep trying, because at home there are people who love you no 
matter how bad it sometimes may seem.

We held on to our new memories of the 
National Championship victory and a new 
president. We said goodbye to Provost Robert 
Glidden after he accepted the presidency at Ohio 
University and we said hello and welcomed our 
new president, Sandy D'Alemberte. 

We built new foundations on the traditions 
of the past as the University Center was added to 
Doak Campbell Stadium and Jennie Murphree 
Hall renovations were completed. 

As the year went on, we celebrated all that 

had been accomplished and the spring was filled 

with entertainment. Garth Brooks played two 

nights in March, Bo Diddly performed, Joan Biaz

returned and in April we enjoyed a visit from 
J immy Buffet and the Coral Reefer Band for the 

first time in four years. 

In some ways, this was only the beginning. 

Some of us finished our finals and were on our way 

to turning our tassels at graduation. Some started 

summer session or went home to work for the 

summer while others began graduate school or 

became a part of the work force. 

No matter if we were leaving for good or 

only a few short months, we had changed because 

of the time we had spent here, the time we had 

spent together. We shared the good and the bad 

and we walked away wiser. 

No matter what our personal experiences 

had been, we had grown. Together we had raised 

our consciousnesses, spread awareness and built 

onto our foundation of knowledge both inside and 

outside the classroom. 

It was impossible to measure exactly what 

each individual gained from the year; we all had 

our own expectations and dreams. However, we 

found that there was a common thread through 

each of our lives; each was a piece of the cloth 

that kept the University woven together. As we 

linked the pieces together, we found that the sum 

of the parts is greater than the whole.
