The Lamp: Stay Gold
The 2010-2011 Issue of The Lamp, the Walsh University yearbook.
The President’s Message Ruminations Yearbooks have always been a favorite hobby for me. At home, I have a collection of about thirty. I often go to them for information (visual and factual), and for reminiscing. That is why I am so grateful to all of you who worked to make this edition possible. As we complete the fifty-first year of Walsh University, we again look back on a year filled with great people, great events, great surprises, and ultimately great blessings from our God. Despite the economic, financial, and educational challenges, we have, as William Faulkner once said, “Not only endured, but prevailed.” It is a testimony to a lot of hard work by students, faculty, staff, and administrators. The Class of 2011 is certainly an excellent one. The seniors have been leaders in every aspect of campus life. Record numbers of students have engaged in global learning. New heights have been reached in academics, athletics, and volunteer services at unprecedented levels. The reputation of Walsh has been greatly enhanced, and a legacy of accepting challenges and exploring new horizons has been established. Thank you to all of our seniors for outstanding contributions. May you all enjoy this yearbook as much as I. It would indeed be a blessing if this history repeated itself. Richard Jusseaume, President In Memory of Alexandra Slates The Light of the World: The Legacy of Alex Slates “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; It’s about learning to dance in the rain.” Alex was a beloved part of the Walsh comunity; to honor her memory the Walsh University Student Government had a tree planted in her name. Her hard work and dedication to her schooling was rewarded by an Honorary Degree, given to her family during the May 1st graduation ceremony. The following is an exerpt from the memorial Mass in Alex’s honor: Alex embraced her faith and allowed Christ to lead her in her faith as a counseling student because she truly wanted to help people in her life. Alex was a mentor who sought to teach by example and challenge others to excellence. We can think about her legacy, analogously, like a decorative pillar candle. This candle is beautiful. It is intricate and intentionally designed with purpose and meaning. It is ornate, molded carefully to reflect a greater beauty. In a similar way, God intricately, carefully and ornately designed Alex in her being. God molded and shaped her into a reflection of His Grace and beauty. This candle is unique and looks different from other candles. Alex, as an athlete, coach, and competitor encouraged those around her to be uniquely what God is calling them to be. She encouraged those she worked with to embrace their gifts and use them to bring about God’s Kingdom. This candle gives off fragrance…this scent can be related to the impact of Alex’s life on those who knew her well and how she used the gifts God gave her to make a difference in people’s lives. As a fragrance sweetly fills a room enhancing the ambiance for all present, Alex beautifully enhanced the lives of all who knew her. The Pillar candle: A “pillar” represents strength, support, encouragement…Alex, as a student of counseling, strengthened in her faith, sought to be that pillar for others who may be struggling. Most important in this analogy, this candle carries light. Jesus tells us in Matthew chapter 5, “You are the light of the world; let your light shine before others and glorify your heavenly father.” This light represents Alex’s faith in Christ. Alex had the ability to illuminate and animate the lives of those who knew her. As a counseling student, she sought to be light in a sometimes very dark world, and as Jesus said, she reflected the transformative light of God burning bright to those who were consumed in the darkness of the world. Alex, as the light, was not afraid to shine bright, especially in the face of adversity. Her light shone bright in the hearts of all who knew her and continually pointed to a deep-rooted commitment to excellence, integrity and service. Alex, through her short time on this earth, rested on various pillars; strongholds that guided her throughout life. These “pillars” shaped her into the devoted and committed young woman she was. As we carry out Alex’s legacy today, her memory and spirit is alive in each of us. Let us also be challenged, as Alex was, to rest on these key pillars. “Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another, love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous.” 1 Peter 3:8 50th Anniversary 3 50th Anniversary Recap The 50th anniversary of Walsh was a time of immense celebration and many events which involved the students, faculty, staff, and the community. The year opened with a welcome speech from President Jusseaume on the Farrell Hall steps; the same location Brother Farrell opened the first academic year of the University. Fall Family Weekend and the 50th Anniversary Gala both took place in October recognizing past events and people. An influential guest also visited Walsh in October, Immaculee Ilibagiza, a survivor of the Rwandan genocide. She spoke about her experiences of the genocide as well as the faith which got her through all of her horrid experiences. And to close the year long celebration, a 50th Birthday Party was held on November 17th, Walsh’s “Birthday.” Students sang “Happy Birthday,” made cards, and enjoyed cake in the David Center. There were many memorable events that commemorated the 50th anniversary of Walsh and we now look forward to the moments that will commemorate the next 50 years. “My favorite part about Walsh University is the close friendships that I've made and will carry with me forever.” -Mackenzie Smith conversations.

It is my home. I step on campus and I am surrounded by love and friendship. When I am not at Walsh I want to be.” -Olivia Gruber 5 Spirit "My favorite part of Walsh University is how close I've gotten to other students and faulty alike in such a short amount of time. I truly feel that every one part of Walsh University would have to be the people I have met so far, and the friendships I know I will have long after college is over!” -Katy Collins Major Events 6 Year In Review 2010 How Much things cost in 2010 Average Cost of new house $232,880 Cost of a gallon of gas $2.73 US Postage Stamp 44 cents Dozen Eggs $1.37 Loaf of Bread $2.49 Economics, Politics, and Natural Disasters • January 12 - A magnitude 7 earthquake hits Haiti and devastates the country.

At 87 years old Brother Joseph Power is the oldest Brother on campus, but is still very active. Born in Liverpool, England in 1925, he grew up a fan of futbol and The Beatles, but he was also very interested in the Brothers of Christian Instruction. He attended a boarding school and secondary school at institutions of the Brothers. His post secondary education took place at Oxford University where he not only broadened his intellect, but also was greatly influenced, educated, and befriended by two very famous individuals, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolken. He was invited to Walsh by Brothers Patrick and Farrell in1965 and has been here ever since, with the exception of a few mission trips over the years. Brother Power’s message to students is, “To all students at Walsh, you chose a Catholic college, one that upholds the message of the Gospel: make the best of your opportunity intellectually, spiritually, and physically. Keep to the forefront, the interest of all the people that you meet in your academic and social lives and you will discover that by adding to their happiness you add to your own.” It is clear to see Walsh has retired one of its most loved and famous orators, but his words will forever be held closely to all he has influenced.

For being only 50 years old, this campus holds some very interesting secrets and traditions. During the early days of Walsh, the Brothers surpassed lay people in numbers. Between the student and administrative Brothers, there were approximately 50 Brothers walking around in their black robes, performing their campus duties, and following their extremely strict schedules. The student Brothers were known for their intellect and angering many students for ruining the grading curve in many classes. However, outside the classroom they were everyone’s best friend. They really got to show off when it came time for the annual Walsh versus Malone Intramural Flag Football Game in which they were often key players. The game occurred once a year and became so intense an ambulance was present each year. In addition to the student Brothers, the lay students also did their share to contribute to campus culture. Walsh had many students from places other than Ohio, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. Parents would literally drop their kids off without warning and most of the time it was tough for parents to get students to come home because of how much fun the students had. A freshman rite of passage was the annual tug-of-war competition in the “mud pit” next to Menard Hall, where Wilkof and Olivieri Towers now stand. Held during Opening Weekend, the tug-of-war pitted freshmen against seniors. The seniors always won because they tied the end of their rope to a tractor which was needed because the seniors were usually outnumbered due to the increasing size of the freshmen class. It also ensured that the freshman would be covered from head to toe in mud. The Stumble Inn was the hot spot on campus. Presently the Stumble Inn exists as the Betzler Grille, but at one time it was a club where students would pay a two dollar membership fee to receive beer. Beyond the Stumble Inn, campus was alive with many yearly events. Student Government usually held weekly dances with beer and music for the students to enjoy. Two big events sponsored by Student Government included Oktober Fest and the Ox Roast. These events were primarily for students but were also open to the North Canton community. Many Alumni have fond memories of these events, especially since the drinking age was 18 at the time. If you were a well driven student and you made it to Graduation, Senior Week was waiting. This week, after finals and before graduation, was a memorable event for many. Trips were taken. The pool was used. The Stumble Inn held nightly events. A Senior Gala was held the night before graduation. And then it was time to walk, enter into real life, and leave the experiences to memory. Walsh was a place where people not only received a post secondary education, but they had fun, made lifelong friendships, and learned about themselves. Though Walsh has changed immensely over the years, a few things still hold true. Students are guaranteed to have fun, make incredible friendships and memories, and learn about who they are and who they want to be. Student Life American Marketing Association 15 B.A.M.

This trip would not have been possible without the hard work of Choral Director, Dr. Britt Cooper; Director of Global Learning, Ryan Ozar; Rome Site Director, Danilo Mori; and President Richard Jusseaume. The Choir completed many fundraisers which included singing for various donors and a raffle drawing (the Grand Prize was two plane tickets to New York, two nights stay at a hotel off of Times Square, and two tickets to Tony Award Winning Musical, Memphis). Participating students were also required to take a class on the “Spirit and Culture of Collective Song.” The Chamber Singers stayed at the Walsh campus in Castel Gandolfo near Rome, Italy from June 9th to the 21st. The choir gave many performances which included three of the four major Basilicas in Rome: a Mass at St. Paul’s Outside the Walls, an impromptu performance at the Basilica of St. John Lateran, and they sang for Pope Benedict at a Papal Audience outside of St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. Other performances included Mass at St. Francis Basilica in Asissi, a concert at the Piazza Chiesa Nuova also in Asissi, a performance at the American Embassy in Rome, and a concert at the Chiesa of St. Tomassino of Villanova in Castel Gandolfo. The Walsh students also gave a few spontaneous performances in town squares, restaurants, and other churches. I think Dr. Cooper said it best in his blog when he stated “sometimes an unplanned performance (or two) can be more meaningful than the planned ones.” The true spirit of collective singing warms the hearts of those listening. The 32 students spent nearly two weeks giving performances and seeing the sites of Rome and Asissi, while witnessing the spirit and culture of collective singing. Sophomore, Felecia Majors says “The Romans [Italians] truly enjoyed listening to us. You could see it on their faces. They have a fine appreciation for art over there and it was amazing sharing that with them.” Performing Arts Choir 25 26 Performing Arts Birk Center for the Arts Over the past few years, Walsh has enhanced the fine arts department with the addition of the Walsh Pride Band who has shown their dedication at every home basketball and football game playing the tune of Walsh spirit. The fine arts department also expanded the choral experience incorporating the Chamber Singers, a smaller traveling choir. Perhaps the biggest addition to the music department is the building of Walshâ€™s Center for the Arts. Opening in January of 2012, this facility will house the band, choir, and art classes. The center will feature a rehearsal hall, art studio and an atrium to showcase student work.

First, the branding of the university as an NCAA institution signals a new level of expectation and success for the athletic department and the university. Just a few short years ago, Walsh was not positioned to make this move as our facilities, staffing and scholarship funding all were insufficient. With the leadership of President Jusseaume and the Board of Directors, all of these areas have been addressed. Walsh has established 7 JV teams. Athletic facilities have seen unprecedented growth and improvements during the past ten years, including the construction of an artificial turf field, a competitive track, a lighted stadium, a tennis complex with 6 competition courts, the development of a volleyball arena and the construction of the new Alumni Arena; a facility that more than doubled the seating capacity for our men’s and women’s basketball games. The soccer field, softball field and baseball field have all seen enhancements as well and the university now boasts 3 outdoor practice and intramural fields. 33 Men’s Cross Country Top Row: Kevin Perry, Brandon Wollenberg, Brian Walsh, Ryan Garrott, Chris Gillis, Dan Baumann, Bob Fay, Justin Eddy, Bryan Myers, Evan Heck, Adam Hrdlicka, Luke Immel Bottom Row: Nick Isla, Matt Roshak, Chris Wilson, Devin Gates, Chase Harshberger, Caleb Stevenhagen, Jordan Groubert, Adam Stilgenbauer, Andrew Miller, Dan Opeka, Nick Reed, Ryan Opeka, Travis LeVan, Mark Mayle Women’s Cross Country Top Row: Coach Al Campbell, Lissa Yoder, Michelle Green, Courtney Knox, Chelsea Megyes, Rachelle Miller, Rachel Reed, Kim Swartz, Cecelia Knox, Allie Simmons, Maggie Finnerty, Erin Clark Middle Row: Nicole Culler, Emily DePalmo, Kaley Charek, Clara Hawkins, Brittany Wile, Kelly Vigars, Lauren Cameron, Sarah Martter, Katie Laughlin Bottom Row: Missy Moziejko, Ashley Dempsey, Megan Case 34 Volleyball Top Row: Mandy Taylor, Natalie Philips, Megan McCarthy, Paige Chandler, Brittany Morris, Jenna Golic, Amber Silver.

Letters from the Editors To all readers: When “The Lamp” editors initially sat down to decide a theme for this yearbook, it was not a simple task. Color schemes, font displays, and whimsical themes were tossed around, but we all looked at each other knowing that we had not quite hit the nail on the head. For some serendipitous reason, my mind reverted back to my freshmen year of high school, causing me to think of a phrase that I read in a book once, “Stay Gold.” As you may recognize, this phrase comes from the book The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. Even though it just so happens that gold is one of our school’s colors, the reason for choosing this theme has much more depth than a color wheel can create. The phrase “Stay Gold,” is a reply to Robert Frost’s poem “Nothing Gold Can Stay.” Frost explains that innocence and youth shift to responsiblilities in time, “So dawn goes down today. /Nothing gold can stay.” S.E. Hinton was a mere sixteen years old when she wrote The Outsiders. The book has surpassed best-selling status and is read among people everywhere. It is quite the achievement. She knew that when you set your mind to something that the impossible becomes a reality. Well dear readers, I challenge you to look through this yearbook and not find something that you are proud of, something that may have once seemed unattainable. Walsh has left each student with a sense of vitality and perserverance. Hold on to this gift. We have created this piece of memorabilia, documenting a tremendous year full of accomplishments, to remind and challenge us all to Stay Gold. Sincerely, Marc Malleske , Managing Editor We have been celebrating fifty years of Walsh, the tradition and excellence set forth by seven Brothers of Christian Instruction and forty-seven young men. And in this time of celebration, we have had the chance to look back on what has been accomplished by what started as a small liberal arts college, that most of us now call home. We have followed in their footsteps, taking much initiative reviving and creating new traditions. The Lamp has been brought back this year to commemorate our part in this incredible history. The name of our yearbook comes from the Roman lamp at the crown of the University’s seal that is ingrained with a red Chi-Rho symbol. As a result of our time here at Walsh we have been imprinted ourselves, by the love and commitment we see each day to spread and become the “light of the world.” As we enter Walsh’s fifty-first year,The Lamp staff has worked hard to include all of the intricate pieces that make what we know and love as Walsh. So take The Lamp, wherever you may go. Look at it to remember your past and what has lit the way to your future. As it was best said in the first issue of The Lamp, “The darkness is ignorance and sin. The light is education. The light of education permeates Walsh.” Thus, The Lamp. It’s yours.
