Daytonian 1985 University Of Dayton Dayton, Ohio 45469 Volume LXII



The quotation on the Omega Point, a sculpture near Roesch Library, sets the tone for this volume of the Daytonian. It states, "Omega Point is the furthest point of the whole cosmic process: a final point where the law of universal love will have reached its climax and its crown - Christ.'' The process of striving for the best is the idea encompassed in the Omega Point, which is also the idea engrained in the structural base of the University of Dayton. Leaders of tomorrow strive to reach their own Omega Points, or personal goals, through individaul activities as well as community involvement.


Individuality is prevalent in each person who is a part of the University. Students unfold toward personal goals by engaging themselves in learning experiences. Activities can be new and exciting, such as those alive on this year's campus. Trivial Pursuit, Euchre, hackey sac, and parachuting are a few mind and body demanding exercises that have come into style. Fads have exemplified the ever onward process, and this year included crop pants, overcoats, and mirrcred sunglasses. The University has also adjusted to the process of change. Improved programs in the five schools and colleges have prepared students better for the updated and current world.






As the UD student grows toward his or her personal goals or approaches the Omega Point, the community also moves toward its goals. These efforts can be as simple as cheering the basketball team to victory or holding hands as the 11 0ur father" is prayed at the Christmas On Campus Mass. In turn the community also fosters the individual's talents. It awards academic achievers scholarships. It applauds singers and performers. It respects leaders. The 1984-85 year is part of the timely process of

change. As we enter the records of yesteryear we begin to approach the Omega Point.

University Welcomes Newcomers "I didn't know anyone . .. " "I was lost all of the time. Well, I still carry my campus map just in case .. . " "The dorm rooms were so bare ... " "We actually took our purses into the ghetto ... " For most students at the University of Dayton, it doesn't take long to figure out that these statements were made by freshmen. Thinking back a couple of years, we can realize that we probably made the same, typical remarks ourselves. A unique transition takes place at the end of August during Orientation. Orientation both welcomes and challenges new students to be a part of the University through leadership and respect. It introduces students to the campus, the people and. the philosophies that make up the University of Dayton. A three-day schedule offers the 1,693 entering freshmen both academic and social activities to familiarize them with college life in general. Advisor meetings, departmental meetings, Dayton bus tours, a movie on Stuart Hill, and a welcome mass are just some of the activities attended. The Orientation Program, which is under the Center for Psychological Services, was considered by the acting director as an overall good program due to the effectiveness of the staff. Students expressed a sense of relief over the busy schedule and the friendliness of the people involve d. Whether students hailed from Buffalo, New York, louisville or Chicago, Orientation offered the entering freshmen an opportunity to get to know one another and all of the facets which make up the University of Dayton.

The plaza outside of Kennedy Union is used for a variety of reasons. Some organizations use the plaza to meet, some to socialize, and some just to play games. However, there is one day each fall when all campus organizations meet in the plaza, and that is "Up the Organizations Day." Each of the various organizations must register for table-space two weeks prior and then sets up their booth anywhere in the plaza. The "Day" runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and it offers every club on campus the opportunity to increase its membership, to meet members of other clubs, and to show their school spirit. "Up the Organization Day" gives everyone on campus a chance to see what organizations are available at the University of Dayton. likewise, it invites the outside community to participate as well. "Some clubs double their size," according to Lavonne Dees, chairperson of Activities Advisory Council, the council in charge of the event.

The Oldest Art Show In Dayton Each September, the grounds of the University of Dayton Roesch Library becomes the site of very important cultural tradition - the Library Lawn Art Show. The show, which is sponsored by University Activities, and which is well-reputed for its displays of fine craftsmanship, is a tradition not only for the University but also for the Dayton community. In fact, it has the distinction of being the oldest art show in the Dayton area. On September 16, 1984, the Library Lawn Art Show once again lived up to, if not surpassed, its tradition of excellence. The strong point of this year's show was undoubtedly the variety of artistry displayed. Approximately 50 artists and craftsmen presented their wares, which included pottery, stoneware, photography, watercolors, jewelry, wood working, stained glass, paper making, and pen-and-ink drawings, just to name a few. In addition, 路 visitors were treated to the sounds of guitar music, both classical and folk, a poetry reading, and the performance of the singing group Celebration. When those midday hunger pangs set in, a wide variety of culinary delights were available, ranging from BaskinRobbin's ice cream to sandwiches and snacks provided by Food Service. Gourmet picnic baskets, which provided the perfect repast for such a beautiful September day, were also available. These picnic baskets were sold by the University Activities Organization and came complete with cheeses, apples, grapes, petit fours, summer sausage, croissants, and a fifth of sparkling burgundy grapedrink - in just the right quantity for a romantic picnic for two! Mary Rose Zink, coordinator of University Activities Organization, said, "I consider this a successful event. We have passed out over 1,000 programs to visitors and we have received positive feedback from artists and visitors alike." Laura Limongelli

Monopoly On '

Campus? When you pass Go, collect $200. Is this a joke? No one wins money so easily. When you play the game of Monopoly though, anything is possible. And when you join the fun at Campus Carnival, the possibilities are endless. The 1984 Campus Carnival was a million-dollar success. After some creative brainstorming, members of the University Activities organization, Mary Rose Zink and Mary Ellen Haefner, planned an interesting twist to the usual Carnival theme: a Monopoly board game. Each booth rented by interested University organizations was a playing spot on the original Monopoly game board. No ideas were too wild for the different places on the board. For instance, the Art fraternity chose New York Avenue to sell bagels, toast-on-a-stick, and instant photos with Miss Liberty as the accompanying prop. Other ideas included, Founders 2nd and 4th floors with a dunking tank calling their square Waterworks, Tai Chi Kung Fu Club selling eggrolls on Oriental Avenue, and Lambda, Lambda, Lambda Sorority with a kissing booth on Park Place. The booths sold anything from soda and beer to hotdogs and pizza. Games were varied and interesting such as card games, computer games, and skill games, like dart throws and putt-putt. In addition to the multitude of games and food, there was entertainment provided by a very up and coming group called the Castaways. They gave a fresh and innovative sound and played a new music dance style that kept the crowd alive. They played a range from various new and old bands such as Elvis Costello, R.G.M., and David Bowie. They added an additional pizazz to the delightful evening. Mary Ellen Haefner

1984's Homecoming Homecoming '84 was a time of "Reminiscing" for all of the University community - past and present. Creating special moments while looking back at the memories behind was the idea of the Homecoming Week theme. The week of "special moments" began on Sunday with "Days of Yesteryear", the theme of the 1984 International Tea. At the tea, the Queen candidates were presented to the University. The serving of various teas and cookies added an extra flavor to the event. Wednesday afternoon featured a crazy parade in the plaza with the queens riding in floats created by their sponsoring organizations. Cribs, wagons, and even a man-made hotair balloon entertained the students. The University of Dayton community continued to reminisce on Wednesday and Thursday evenings as the queens journeyed through past d ecades. The queens relived some famous memories of the "goo ol' days" by representing various eras of the past through skits on the Brady Bunch Show, the Wizard of Oz, the (continued)

Rock, Roll Blues Brothers, and many other popular shows. It was time to "Rock, Roll, & Reminisce" Friday evening as the plaza came alive with a 'SO's bash. The celebration commemorated the 20th Anniversary of Kennedy Union and kicked off the Homecoming Weekend festivities with Steve Kirk spinning discs and "The Keepers" rockin' and rollin', the students, faculty, and alumni were twisting and turnin' all night long. The highlights of the night featured a spectacular fireworks display over campus. From the New York diner-style burgers to the poodleskirts and leather jackets, "Rock, Roll & Reminisce" was really groovin' for the 500 attendees. The excitement, generated throughout the week, climaxed Saturday afternoon with the University of Dayton vs. Anderson College football game. First, there was a surprise in the sky as four parachuters jumped into the stadium to deliver the game ball and the Homecoming Queen's crown. Then, the halftime festivities featured the crowning of the 1984 Homecoming Queen, Heather Bersch. The festive mood continued as the Flyers sailed to a 38-0 victory. The evening came to a close with the Homecoming dance at Wampler's Ball Arena. Clare Carr

The Show Of Shows The University of Dayton Bands, under directors Roby George and Gary Ciepluch, had another fine season this year. Rehearsals started almost immediately after the first day of classes in the fall, and required much time and dedication. The marching band met eve ry Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for an hour and 45 minutes.

which the band faced at half-time of the football games, so the following week the band performed towards the student stands with astounding success. For Halloween, the band members dressed in outlandish costumes for a special half-time performance. Among the noteworthy costumes were the "Stay-Puff" ghost and Ray Parker Jr. imitations from the movie "Ghostbusters," performed to the music from the movie; also among the guises was a walking beer can, with which all University students can relate.

In addition to these practices, Saturday morning rehearsals before the game were also necessary in order to put the final polish on the show. Although there was some discord throughout the season between band members and the directors the group managed to hold together and continue marching. In October, the band traveled to Wabash, Indiana, to lend support to the football team in their victory over Wabash College. The trip involved overnight lodging and proved to be very enjoyable.

The season culminated in the "Last Blast," held at the University's Arena, in which the band performed all the music from the entire season. In addition to these University-related activiti es, the band was asked to provide music for the "Grand Re-Opening" of the Dayton Mall, and sent a select group there to perform.

Earlier in the season, the student fans were upset at the direction

The pep band is composed of members of the marching band who

wish to perform at the basketball games. Most students find this to be an enjoyable opportunity to support their team, and they obtain some pretty good seats in the bargain. Domino's Pizza provided a pizza party for the pep band after one game because the whole band had worn Domino's caps at two of the games. In addition to these groups, there are many other ensembles for students interested in music to become involved with. There is a Wind Ensemble and a Concert Band, which perform two concerts during the winter semester. The jazz Ensemble has also played numerous concerts throughout the year, and was invited to play at a festival in Canton, Ohio. There are other groups, too, offering all types of diverse performing opportunities for those who are interested. Marc Dancer

Anyone For Hotdogs Or Beer?

Fifty tailgaters provided an excellent pre-game scene for the 1984-85 sports season. Students, parents, administrators, and Dayton community began getting psyched for the Flyers a couple hours before a game. For instance, people would start consuming beer and hotdogs at 11:00 Saturday morning of football games. A new twist was added in 1984-85. Music was provided by WTUE, a local Dayton rock station. There were free t-shirts, albums, and cups handed out. A highlight of one of the tailgates was the trivia game both students and parents participated in during parents' weekend. According to Greg Werckman, director of Student Association entertainment, tailgates were successful because of the dedicated tailgaters. "The tailgaters were dedicated and fun. They have completed the 14th year of successful tailgate history." Heidi M. Zschuppe

Just Kicking Around One of the newest fads that popped up on the University of Dayton campus this fall and spring kindled an idea inside the creative mind of a member of the University Activities Organization (UAO). George Anderson, president of UAO, noticed many different people playing around with little leather sacks, popping the bags around among a circle of friends, but doing so only with their feet. The game, called "Hackey Sac," was slowly attracting attention on various parts of campus, especially the Union plaza during class breaks, and on sunny weekend afternoons in the ghetto. Anderson began wondering if there was a way to get a different and unique group of students involved in a campus activity or event, so that the game would be more than a seasonal fad. His idea became clearer when American College Unions International (ACUI) mailed promotional material to Anderson

28/Student Life

informing him of a regional Hackey Sac Tournament that was taking place in the fall. Anderson then realized, "We can do that here." With the help of Steve Gillotti, another UAO member, eye-catching informational posters were posted around campus. Interested teams and individual players began signing up for the tournament. Gillotti was also able to secure prizes for the winners: free Hackey Sacs from WhamCompany, University sweatshirts, and a dinner for two at King Cole restaurant. However, the ACUI guidelines were not specific enough for Anderson and Gillotti as they formalized last-minute plans. Therefore, Anderson took the liberty at that point to get input from tournament participants. He asked the students to help modify the rules so that the tournament was simpler and easier to follow. Modifications included:


court size, game length, types of teams, net game, team freestyle, and individual consectutive kicks. The First Annual Hackey Sac Tournament then kicked off at 301 Lowes (McGinnis Center) on Friday, September 16. With the arrival of spring, some o f the old and some of the new enthusiasts can be seen having fun playing Hackey Sac and enjoying the warmer weather . Many of the tournament participants have shown an interest in beginning a spring contest and have asked Anderson about the possibility. However, Anderson will not say for certain if such an event is being scheduled but did promise that the 2nd Annual Hackey Sac Tournament is definite for the fall. Mary Ellen Haefner

Christmas Magic

Deck the halls with boughs of holly .. . 'Tis the season to be jolly ... ... As Kennedy Union was transformed into a Christmas castle for the 21st time. The annual yuletide celebration, Christmas on Campus, sponsored by University Activities Organization brought the joy and happiness of the season to hundreds of children, students, and adults. Event Chairpersons Diane Devaney, Greg Harkness, and Chris Hipp, along with close to 200 students, worked for weeks coordinating all aspects of the COC celebration, which followed the theme "Christmas Magic: A Gift of the Heart." For COC, students may adopt school children or senior citizens and act as guides throughout the evening. COC is an event rich in tradition, but this year one tradition was bro-

ken. "This year was the first time COC was not on December 8," said Ellie Kurtz, director of Kennedy Union. COC was held Sunday December 2, because a Flyers basketball game was scheduled for the 8, and it also fell in the middle of the finals period. Despite the date change COC was as successful as past years. Brother Fitz lit the Christmas tree in the plaza to start off the evening. The tree was donated by the Sims family of Beavercreek. The campus was bathed in light with luminaria glowing along walkways. The luminaria are a Spanish custom symbolically lighting the way for the Christ child. Inside Kennedy Union, Santa Claus met with eager children. Celebration, University of Dayton Dance Ensemble, and show choirs for the Beavercreek schools provided entertainment. Visitors enjoyed a model train ex-

hibit, cartoons, puppet shows, and decorations. Like elves, many students stayed up all night decorating Kennedy Union. Instead of studying for the upcoming finals, students turned bowling pins into Christmas elves, painted windows, and holiday displays. The newly remodelled Torch Lounge was accented with snowflake banners in matching pastel colors. Nearly 1,000 people attended Mass in the Fieldhouse to close the evening. The altar was deocrated with poinsettias donated by campus organizations. These flowers were later delivered to area senior citizen's homes. Christmas magic was the gift many received that night from the students at the University of Dayton. Jim Petsche

20th Anniversary Celebration "The Kennedy Union staff and University Activities Organization (UAO) cordially invites you and your family to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Kennedy Union ... " and what a celebration it was! The living room of the University recreated many of the highlights and traditions that have become synonomous with the Kennedy Union. The Union has served as the cultural, social, education, spiritual and recreational center for students, faculty, staff, and the Dayton community. November 18, 1984 was the official rededication and birthday celebration of Kennedy Union. Mass was held in Boll Theatre and afterwards various activities and entertainment were presented throughout the building. Some of these included the University's Jazz Ensemble, the Friendly Winds Quartet, the SuzukiStrings, Celebration, Bowling and Pool Tournaments, Lip-it Contest, and a Christmas Craft Boutique.

The biggest hits of the afternoon were the 1964 prices at the snackbar and candy counter, and the door prizes given away by Barbara Kerr of WKEF-TV. The Oregon Trolley provided riders with a view of the campus, and everyone tasted a piece of the eight-foot birthday cake. Ellie Kurtz

Showercurtains. Window-weatherproof plastic. lnnertubes. Cafeteria trays. Skis. What do all these have in common? Yes, you guessed it, the steepest incline on campus, Stuart Hill. What time of year, you might wonder? It's the time of year shower curtains disappear in Marycrest, Founders and Stuart dormatories. It's the time of year that ghetto heating bills break budget. It's the time of year students get up early to hear school closings.

A senior, Brenda Mayhall, even went so far as to measure the depth of snow that had fallen every hour on her car, in hopes that her three tests may be cancelled the next day. To her relief school was cancelled. Although the unpredicatbale weather caused problems of frozen pipes, broken heaters, and stalled cars, students took the optimistic approach. They relieved their academic stresses by playing outdoors. Winterfun also has a peaceful effect on campus. The snow blanketed the University's land with a powdery hush. One can always recall walking home from the Roesch Library all bundled up to hear only his own footsteps. It gave an opportunity to clear his mind and enjoy the beauty of the moment. Heidi M.

Days Of UD Men Campaigning This year's Turnabout Dance and its theme, "A Night in the Tropics," will be looked back upon as a funfilled week of activities culminating in the sold-out dance at Wampler's Arena. The field of King candidates was comprised of eight individuals and two, two-man teams. The candidates were Jim Hufford, Steve "Scarface" Hanson, Tony "Mr. T." Mollo, Adam "Biuto" Lazlo, John Latchney, Frank Urwin, Ben Stallings, Julius "Mr. J" Pritchett, The Brews Brothers Pete Ganzel and Doug Willse, and Mike Zernic and John Reyher as Bob and Doug McKenzie. This large field generated a lot of support from the students as they rallied for their choice for king. The events planned for the week were well attended. Starting the week off on the right note was the showing of the Elvis Presley movie "Blue Hawaii" at Chudd Auditorium. Tuesday night the Kennedy Union Snackbar was transformed into a tropical paradise for a Luau. The Kings made a guest appearance as they performed a dance wearing grass skirts. The most popular event, the King Skits, were performed on Thursday night to a full-house in the Kennedy Union Ballroom. The week ended in grand fashion as over 1900 students and guests attended the dance at Wampler's. As the clock struck midnight, Tony "Mr. T" Mollo was crowned Turnabout King, 1985. The entertainment was provided by two superb bands, Audio and the Keepers. Along with the fun associated with th e dance, Co-Chairpersons Dave Sanders and Tracee Hixson announced that all the profits generated from the dance would be contributed to the Stephen I. Sheehy S.M. Memorial Scholarship Fund. Dave Sanders

Floyd's In Mexico Friendly Floyd's ha5 been a tradition at U.D. for the past seven years. It all started when Victor Vergata, a UAO member in 1978 came up with the idea of having a Monte Carlo night with a fake store front, something of a take-off from the '20's. Every year since then, a different theme has been used for the store front. 1984's theme was that of an Ice Cream Parlor. And this year's theme was one of a Mexican Restaurant. In back of the restaurant was the "Gambling Room." The K.U. Ballroom was decorated with fake chandeliers, and gambling tables were set up around the room. Flappers and gangsters roamed the room to add to the gambling atmosphere. At midnight, Floyd makes a grand entrance. Every year since Victor's first event, he has come back to the University to play Floyd. This year, however, the hat and dark shades were handed down to Matt DeMaio and he was Floyd. Friendly Floyd made his entrance on top of a grand piano with flappers surrounding him and gangsters pushing the whole party into the Ballroom. After his entrance, the gambling resumed and the Alex Tarzan Band took over. At the end of the night, the Accounting Club held an auction where a trip to Florida, beer lights, and gift certificates were bought with the money won at the gambling tables. All in all, the night was a success. Next year, the tradition continues. Chris Pogodzinski

Parents Get The Special One of the most anticipated events of the fall term is Parents' Weekend. The weekend is a godsend for students as their parents' arrival usually means dinner out, use of the car, shopping and some extra cash. For parents the weekend is a chance to share in the college life with their sons and daughters. In the fall of 1984 there were three Parents' Weekends - September 21-23, October 2629, and November 2-4. There was much planned to keep visiting parents busy during Pare nts' Wee kend. In addition to tailgates, Flyer football games, and cocktails and dinner, fathers and sons competed on the PAC's raquetball courts. Nice weather allowed for barbecues and impromptu picnics on ghetto porches. Seve ral organizations received parents at re ceptions and dances. Lambda Chi Alpha invited brothers' parents to a tailgate at the fraternity house and an evening dance. Other campus events including UD Theatre's production of The Dining Room, special Masses and continental breakfasts, also ente rtained parents and students.

American Life Comically Portrayed In The Dining Room University of Dayton Theater, a division of the Performing and Visual Arts Department, opened its 1984-85 season with the highly acclaimed off-broadway hit The Dining Room by A.R. Gurney, Jr. L.L. Selka directed the season opener which was performed in Late October.

The Dining Room is an original, imaginative, and funny look at American life. The play examines the upper middle class of this century in the room that was the vital center of family - the dining room. Six actors in a variety of roles are featured in a series of vignettes involving an assortment of characters of all ages and generations. There is the young lad who wants to convince his wealthy grandfather to pay for his education. There are the two prep-school girls plotting a gin-vodka-and-Fresca party. And there is the young girl who would rather attend the theatre with her aunt than go to dance classes as her society matron mother wishes. There are these, and more. The Dining Room is a richly textured play that is genuinely entertaining. In the University's production, five of the six students in the cast had never appeared on the Boll Theatre stage before. The Dining Room proved to be an excellent debut show; however, as it was well-received by audiences throughout its run. The cast included Allison Phillips, Sheila K.R. Mills, Carol Minarik, Ray Schiel, Bob Woods, and John Hartmann.

The Dining Room was presented October 27, 28, and 29 in Boll Theatre.

Wop-baba-lu-bop! '

Wop-baba-lu-bop! The popular musical Grease burst onto the University of Dayton's Boll Theatre stage in February. This University Theatre production was the hottest ticket on campus during the winter, as Grease played to full houses for all six of its performances. Grease is a rocking, rollicking comedy about fast cars, high school dances, teenage romance, and good friends. The Rydell High School class of '59 sings, dances and cavorts its way through this hilarious satire of the rock and roll era. The musical features such familiar songs as "Summer Nights," "Born to Hand-Jive," and "Beauty School Dropout."

The University's theatre production of Grease was full of energy and exuberance. Audiences will remember the exciting hand-jive contest at the school dance and the roaring engine of the souped-up hot rod, "Greased Lightning," as it pulled in onstage. Some of the characters in Grease are unforgettable, too. The Burger Palace Boys were too cool for school. The Pink Ladies wore their pink satin jackets with pride. And Danny, Sandy and their romance were caught in between. Audiences cheered Frenchy and her guardian 48/Student Life

angel, who came from the skies, and they were surprised when Roger showed them how he earned his nickname "Rump." Grease was directed by and choreographed by John Cameron, who joined the University's Theatre faculty in August 1984. Featuring a cast of 27, Grease was like a family. "The cast of Grease was like a community within itself. Close ties and relationships were made that will last a long time," Cameron said.

Part of the success of Grease can be attributed to the cast. "There's a lot of talented people at UD," Cameron said. A lot of that talent goes untapped, though. "It would be nice to see the arts programs expand and grow over the coming years to incorporate more of these students. American universities have an obligation to support and develop American culture," he said. Grease was Cameron's first show at the University. "I had enormous fun working with UD students. It was an experience I won't soon forget," he said. Grease ran for six performances over two weekends, Feb. 1-3 and 7-9.

All The World Is A Stage The University of Dayton Theater completed a very successful season with Children of a Lesser God, in late March. The play, by Mark Medoff, has won many awards including several Tony awards. Children of a Lesser God is a powerful human drama centering on two decent and courageous individuals. Sarah Norman is a sensitive deaf woman who faces the realities of learning to communicate in the hearing world she knows - the deaf world - and the world of sound. james Leeds is the devoted teacher who reaches out to Sarah and falls in love with her. Through the lives of james and Sarah, the play raises questions concerning the basic tenets of human relationships and human communication.

"It's a play about communication. It also says that sometimes we fail, and that's okay," said John Kovac, who played the part of James. "One

50/Student Life

of the basic themes of the play is that people can be joined together, but it is impossible to make one over in another's image." This theme is expressed through jame's and Sarah's relationship and eventual marriage. The conflict between james and Sarah and their two different worlds leads to a dramatic conclusion that moved some audience members to tears. The role of Sarah was played by Venda Eileen Dick, a theatre and special education major from Sinclair Community College. Dick played the role of Sarah in the recent Sinclair production of the play. Dick, who is hearing impaired, said she had a lot in common with Sarah. She explained that she grew up in the hearing world, but also has a strong understanding of the silent world of the ,deaf. "I'm right in the middle b6th ways. I feel confused between the two worlds sometimes," she said. Most of the dialogue in Children of

a Lesser God is translated into sign language, and the cast spent many hours learning how to communicate their lines in sign. Audience appreciated the efforts and intensity of the cast, especially Kovac, who, as james, guided the play onstage for the duration of the performance. Children of a Lesser God was marked by the strong performances of a dedicated hardworking cast and by the strength of the story they brought to life. In addition to Kovac and Dick, the cast included C. Daniel Kinser, Kristin Larsen, Ray Schiel, Maureen Ann Flaherty, and Lisa Bricka. The production was under the direction of john Cameron. Children of a Lesser God was performed March 28, 29, and 30 in Boll Theater. Jim Petsche

To Rush, To Pledge, To Be Greek

52/Stud ent Life

What's the atmosphere difference between a metropolis like New York City and a rural farm ing town like Fredrickstown, Ohio? City atmosphere consists of the fast lane and people rushing around. The word rushing, though carries another meaning wit h the Greeks at the Unive rsity of Dayton. Rushing is a chance for students to become informed about the various Greeks on campus. Theme rushes are very popular, such as Delta Omega Tau Sorority's M & M rush.

Once the student chooses from the 15 fratern ities, 9 sororities, and 8 litt le sister fraternities, he or she goes into an average of five-week pledge period. The pledging student learns about the Greek organization through getting signatures and interviews of members, service, and social activ ities.


Pledges are involved with all the activities of their prospective organization . Everyth ing from Winterfest, a money raiser for the Ronald McDonald House, to fix-up dances. University of Dayton st udents rush to pledge, and pledge to be inducted into the Greek organization as a brother or sister.

What do you have when you put a group of Greeks together for a week of fun and games, contests, skits, barrels of beer, bar night, and a ball with music and dancing? The answer is GREEK WEEK! Greek Week '85 was Monday, March 18 to Friday, March 22. Greek games was the first event which kicked off Greek Week. Monday, in Stuart field , Greeks gathered to compete in such games as the banana pass, a three-legged race , bat drills, an obstacle and a balloon tbss. Seven fraternities and four sororities showed up to grunt and groan their way to victory in an all-out competition. A tug-of-war competition between fraternities lasted through Greek We ek. Frat teams met at scheduled times to battle out the event. Alpha Nu Omega finally won the competition, after a week of tugging. Eating and drinking were the main events taking place on Tuesday. Fraternity and sorority members met in the Kennedy Union snackbar for eating contests, which included being fed half a pizza by a team member, eating ice cream with no spoon and your hands behind your back, and a pastry-eating contest. After the contests, greek members gathered at

Walnut Hills for Greek bar night which offered drink specials and a good time. Many fraternities and sororities turned out for a night of skits at the McGinnis Center Wednesday night. The five- to ten-minute skits depicting Greek life at the University of Dayton included some humorous antics such as pledging, the Greek gods, and many more. "Roll out the barrel, and we'll have a barrel of fun . .. " is exactly what happened to the Greek houses through the ghetto on Thursday night. The barrels were brought out at different houses at scheduled times and when the beer was gone at one party, the whole group moved to the next. Each fraternity and sorority that participated donated a keg, and everyone had a good time getting to know the other members of the Greek organizations. The Greek ball - the week's biggest event - concluded Greek Week. The Greek ball was held in the fieldhouse from 8 p.m. til 1 a.m . as couples showed up to dance and enjoy the sounds of Vital Signs.

There's No Place Like U.D.

"There's no place like U.D." was the theme for the third annual University of Dayton Siblings' Weekend March 1-3. From all over the country brothers and sisters of U.D. students came to visit the school and see for themselves a very special place. In addition to exploring U.D. and Dayton on their own, siblings were treated to a movie, a concert, and an illusionist performance. A Mass in Immaculate Conception Chapel and a continental breakfast capped off the weekend's events Sunday. Colleen McBride, Gwyni Gilliland, and Kathleen Reardon served as chairpersons for the event.

Keeping Correspondence One of the perennial favorites of university students has to be mail. Mail in all forms, shapes, and sizes will do. Some eager readers look forward to their monthly issues of Sports Jllustrated, Glamour, GQ,

Time, U.S. News and World Report, and good old Rolling Stone. Still other mail-mongers anxiously await cards and gifts during holidays from friends, boyfriends, girlfriends, and grandma. But, the best correspondence for most students is probably the unexpected from an old buddy; just when you think they've forgotten you, they make your day with a cheery hello.

The busiest holiday for the University Post Office has to be Valentine's Day. Somehow at that time of the year, more cards, flowers, and boxes of candy pour through the Post Office than can be imagined. Through rain, snow, shine, and most winter days, the Postal Express delivers promptly and efficiently. Nevertheless, some mail is not so patiently awaited. The ever-famous Ohio Bell Company will usually sound its death toll around the tenth of every month, only to terrify most students and make them wish they had

not made so many late-night calls to almost every friend they know. But there is one kind of letter that's an all-time favorite of all students. It's the note from Mom and Dad that comes complete with a muchneeded check. If you're really low on cash, it pays to spend a mere 22 cents for a stamp that will bring greater retu rns. Try it and see what happens. Besides, Mom and Dad will appreciate the fact that you are still alive. Mary Ellen Haefner

Mother Nature's Kind Reward Spring at the University of Dayton does not neccessarily mean a season or time of year. Spring at U.D. is that first warm day after many long hard treks through inches of snow, which never seem to disappear. That first warm day when the cold and studying have become such a part of life that students feel as if they will never again feel the sun shine on bare limbs. All of the sudden it hits! Students leaving the library are ready for a dreary walk back to their dorms or ghetto houses. But as they leave their source of warmth, they are met with a new type of warmth. A warmth which they have not felt for many long months. Where students are out on their porches sitting, reading, talking, barbecueing. Frisbees whiz by, footballs arch through the ai r, kegs are bei ng unloaded from cars, and everyone knows that "Springfever" has hit the University of Dayton. A feeling permeates the air which can only be experienced to be understood. All the restle ssness, frustration, and loneliness of the past couple months seem to be forgotten during this small respite. There are even people wearing shorts. Students rush home to chuck off their winter coats, dig through the store d summe r clothes in the base me nt, and join the ir friends on the ghetto streets. Studying for tests and exams while laying in the sun has become an art at the University of Dayton. This year that "Spring fever" hit early. Brenda Mayhall

A Greek Anniversary Of Ten Years Lamda Chi Alpha fraternity celebrated its tenth year anniversary on the University of Dayton campus in 1985. The chapter marked the anniversary with a weekend-long celebration of its Founder's Day in March. Lambda Chi Alpha's beginnings date back to 1965 with the founding of a local fraternity, Epsilon Sigma Phi. In 1971 Epsilon Sigma Phi became a colony of the international brotherhood of Lambda Chi Alpha, and began four years of hard work toward achieving status as a chapter. That goal was reached March 2, 1975, when the colony received its official charter.




"! . .

In the first decade Lambda Chi Alpha had initiated 341 men into its brotherhood. These brothers follow the open motto, "Naught without Labor," which says that nothing of meaning is achieved without serious effort. Brothers have applied this idea to positions and achievements on campus in academics, student government, athletics, and the arts. During these 10 years Lambda Chi Alpha has worked to enjoy an active role in University life. The fraternity sponsors its famous all-day party, Brew-B-Q, on Labor Day weekend. Its "Operation Suitcase" helps freshmen move into the dormatories during orientation. Lambda Chi Alpha has been active in service projects with United Way and Ronald McDonald House, co-sponsoring the latter with Delta Omega Tau sorority. On campus, Lambda Chi Alpha has taken part in Up the Organizations Day, Oktoberfest, and Springfest. In March the fraternity co-sponsored the University of Dayton-Notre Dame postgame party with the Irish Club. Lambda Chi Alpha celebrated its tenth year with Founder's Day Weekend March 21-24, 1985. Highlights of the weekend included an Alumni Kegger at the fraternity house and a dinner dance at the Pre sidential Banquet Center in Dayton. Many alumni returned for the events and with the active brotherhood reaffirmed the spirit of brotherhood that will continue for the next ten years and beyond.

There Is Always Recognizing the need for cultural information and an outlet for alternative opinions in the Dayton area, two University of Dayton students decided to take a chance and become newspaper publishers. Though both were new at publishing, they established the necessary networking and learned along the way. Both papers were free and nonprofit, but each publisher took a different approach. Michael "Boston" Creamer, calling his paper Aroundabout, set out to provide an alternative to the Flyer News; a medium for alternative opinions on the University campus. Creamer also wanted to show University students that there were entertainment activities not only in the ghetto and on Brown Street, but also in other parts of Dayton.

Dayton Is Alive was published by

Andrew Jaffee with an optimistic attitude about the city of Dayton. Dayton Is Alive portrayed Dayton's potential for development, emphasizing the fact that there are cultural activities, recreational facilities, and efficient transportation systems in the city. Journalism was not all Creamer and Jaffee had in mind, for at the end of the year, the two decided to hold a grand alternative event, the "Wild Dance Party." Frantic preparations were the order of the day for this event, the type of event which the University had never experienced. A sound system, alternative music, beer, and people were the only sources of entertainment. An unprecedented 400 people packed into the McGinnis Center to socialize, and dance to alternative music. Even though students from the University of

A beginning in the sense that a spark has ignited in Dayton. The net result of the papers has been to fill a great gap by bringing diverse groups together, creating a cultural atmosphere, giving people hope and pleasure in knowing that things are happening.

Confucius Says The Random House College Dictionary defines refrigerator as a "box, room, or cabinet in which foods, medication, or other perishable items are kept cool by means of ice or mechical refrigeration." This definition does not apply to my refrigerator. After a thorough inspection, I found there is less food in it than anything else, and the food that is presently available is frightfully unsuitable for normal human consumption. This doesn't really matter because my refrigerator does not rest in a "normal setting." This lonely, ivory box received the fate of residence in a college apartment building complex. To help one understand this predicament better, I'll give you a rundown on the contents of the box. We'll start with the freezer. The oldest tenant is a box of sweetrolls that I brought in mid-August. There's some meat wrapped in foil up there.

f) . :;.::11


70/Student Life

The only problem with this is the foil is so stuck to the meat that it's gender is unidentifiable to my three mates and myself. We try to keep the ice stocked up, which is where the chilled gallon of vodka comes in. There also are three partially unwrapped creamsicles, and some freezer-burned garlic bread. On to the main compartment. Top shelf: a half-gallon of two-week-oldmilk, a quart of molded homecanned peaches, Shandra's oatmeal facial mask, a gallon of cheap white wine. Moving on to the refrigerator door, there are four rolls of film, 15 various shades of nail polish (which poses quite a problem when spillage occurs), assorted condiment packages ("Acquired" at the Kennedy Union Snack Bar), four quarts of four different types of mayonnaise, some government surplus cheese that my grandmother graciously accepted from Uncle Sam, and passed on to

me (it's the size of an encyclopedia, and fermenting quite nicely.) Then there's the mystery box of Kroger brand Raisin Bran which somehow appeared during the Christmas break (our guess is the exterminators left it.) About two months ago someone spilled some soy sauce on the bottom shelf, and the soy sauce has since turned into an indelible, brownish stain. There's also four eggs left over from the pre-holiday season. Nobody has guts enough to crack one open. Last, but not least, we have the vegetable crispers, which have turned into Shandra's personal ale stock. Oh yes, one final item which was Laurel's addition to this mish-mash of opulence, is a sign across the front of the fridge that reads: "Confucius says always ask before you take." Now if that doesn't beat all ... Sheila Mills

A Famous UD Ghetto Custom When it comes to kicking off the new school year, celebrating a Flyer victory or simply welcoming a weekend, there's no better way to do it than with a block party! The block party has become a tradition at the University, a part of the ghetto living experience. What makes a block party at the University what it is? Some people might make mention of the run-ins students have with Dayton police at such events, but for most people a University block party is special because of the spirit of community and friendliness among the students. Block parties are happenings, opportunities for students to meet with old friends and to make many new ones. Planning a block party begins with the idea. Then, through the

72/Student Life

cooperation of friends and neighbors or a campus organization, money is raised to buy beer and to pay for the necessary permits from local and state authorities. Once the paperwork is taken care of, the block is roped off and the party is underway. Much of the success of block parties can be attributed to the cooperation among the students, the University, and the proper authorities. There were many block parties during the 1984-85 school year. The residents of Evanston Avenue welcomed fellow students to their block in September. There was the annual St. Patrick's Day party in the 100 block of Lawnview Avenue. Each house donated money to the event and purchased 30 kegs for the afternoon celebration of the Irish. Lowes Street, near the McGinnis Center, became an unofficial central

location for block parties. Several parties, including a University Activities-sponsored party to begin the new school year, brought hundreds of students to the heart of the ghetto. In the spring, a block party was used to promote alcohol awareness The event was a "Lite Party," and for every two beers a student had, he/she bought a non-alcoholic beer. The party also featured games, contests, and a demonstration of how alcohol affects the body. University block parties are a special part of university life. Friends and neighbors gather to share a spirit (no pun intended) of togetherness that is unique to this University. Jim Petsche

What Would You Do When a typical day brings with it the same subjects to discuss in the plaza, in the classroom, or at a ghetto party, sometimes University life can become monotonous and extremely boring. Within the walls of the University, most students pay attention to a possible Friday finance exam, an upcoming calculus quiz, or whether they have enough cash for Timothy's on Thursday night. But suppose you awoke one day to find the University buildings destroyed, your friends vanished, and your hou~e in ruins? The first question you would ask would be, "What happened? Could it be a windstorm, a tornado, or, no it could not be - a nucl e ar attack?" Everyone always talks about these horrors of death, but you, a wellintentioned college student could never expect to live through something like a nuclear bomb attack. Or could you? Mark Slaughter, Student Association Public Relations Director, believes it could happen to anyone. His remedy: a suicide pill, and he introduced the idea to the University. Slaughter had heard about the concept through students at Brown University. With this background, and with the


support of Student Association Entertainment Director Greg Werckman, Slaughter instituted a suicide pill referendum at the University in early April. His idea was not meant to scare students and administration, only to make them aware of the dangerous effects of nuclear war. Slaughter's plan was a call to action, a plan to prevent nuclear war, Because so many people, in particular stude nts, are apathetic about grave and important subjects, Slaughter felt his call was very reasonable. Just how valuable was his plan was up to students, administration and community to decide. The concept of a suicide~cyanide pill brought many mixed reactions. Many University officials, students, and community members felt the pill was a ploy to escape the real aspects of nuclear war. They felt the pill dehumanized life, making it all too easy to forget about life's values: love, peace, humanity, integrity, and compassion. On the other hand, some students and informed persons believed the pill symbolized the potential dangers of nuclear war. Nuclear attact produces economic, emotional, and physical destruction, a nd its aftermath pre vents growth

from flourishing . Slaughter's Call to Action campaign involved a number of different components. Var ious interviews took place with magazines and newspapers such as the Cincinnati Post,

Cleveland Plain Dealer, National Catholic Register, United Press International, and The Associat ed Press. Then many radio and television stations, including channels 7 and 22, along with WYSO, WONE, and WI NG radiO. The last push on the plan was a letter writing campaign including a feature on the ballot that was voted on on April 17-18. Those two days of voting brought about a few struggles, some inquiry, some interest by outsiders, and a general wave of indifference. Despite the effects and publicity, the referendum did not pass. As Werckman pointed out, the idea could not last long enough and interest waned easily because the novelty wore off. But it is the concerned attitude that sta rts on the local level which promises hope and a chance for survival. Hopefully, t he next time you look out your window, you'll think about the next day.

Student Life/75

Drinking With A Clear Head "I drink, I get drunk, I fall down, NO PROBLEM." Yes, and you might get a little sick, break a leg, or even black out. Some people on the University of Dayton's campus have realized the grave magnitude of the effects of "social" drinking on friends, students, and peers and want to do more than just worry. The administration (Brother Raymond Fitz, President, and jack Riley, Acting Vice-President for Student Development) have established an Alcohol Awareness Task Force. The major theme behind the group was the green bean campaign: buttons, questionaires, and a succession of

posters were filtered throughout many campus areas in order to lay a foundation of informative cognizance about alcohol and its physical effects. But the real motivation came from none other than informed and concerned students. The Home Ec Club was the primary student group that created the surge for information with a nutritional campaign that began in February 1984. The campaign was reinstituted in November 1984 with the help of Riley. The next group of builders, the U!liversity Activities Organization, began the Alcohol Awareness Committee at the beginning of 1985.

According to Tom Stapleton, Executive Vice-President of UAO, "The students that have generated intense enthusiasm and hard work include a long list of superb people. But the chief planners were Robert Hagerty, McGinnis Center representative and Campion Armstrong." Armstrong is a freshman at the University but is also a motivate d and interested student, who is very concerned about stude nt well-being. He has put much effort into the plans and activities of the committee and results around campus are becoming noticeabl e .

The Committee's first event, a "Lite Party" took place Friday, April 12. The skills fair/social event involved UAO, the administration and others. By allowing students to gether for a social reason, the committee alerted students to the potentially fatal side effects of alcohol abuse. Stapleton said, "The real long-range plans are essential, and require constant attention, evaluation, and to stress again, hard work." The committee will be planning activities for incoming freshmen during Orientation Week. Likewise, the committee will be sponsoring a "Cold Duck" Week in the fall. Through the support of the University's fraternities, organizations will pledge not to drink for one week. Hopefully students will realize the impact that drinking can have on their habits, attitudes, health, studies, and relationships. Mary Ellen Haefner

One Third Less Serious Incorporating the Green Bean campaign and the objectives set by the University Alcohol Awareness Task Force, the University Activities Organization (UAO) promoted a new concept in social fun and frolic: a "Lite Party." The idea, conceived by members on the Alcohol Awareness Committee, attempted to provide a party with a purpose. The McGinnis Center was used as the party spot, but this time students were educated about alcohol by means of skills tests.

What started out as a controlled block party, soon became an informative gathering that most students enjoyed immensely. Basketball throws, bicycle obstacle courses, and line walks were performed by participating students. Through these skills tests, students were made aware of the dangers of abuse of alcohol. Other activities included beer-tasting guided by a former brewmaster from Hudepohl, Mr. William Schneller.

Campion Armstrong, chairman of the event, was pleased that nearly 600 students attended and learned at the event. He very accurately pointed out, "This party taught students how to be responsible and that they do not have to get drunk in order to have fun." Mary Ellen Haefner

Blue skies, plenty of sunshine, and summertime temperatures made for a perfect day for Student Association's Springfest. The good weather was welcomed by planners of the event. Director of Student Organizations Pete Ganzel said it was the first time in four years the day was not rained out. Students spent the day catching rays, playing hackeysack, tossing frisbee, drinking beer, and eating hotdogs. Music was provided by two local groups. Jitters played back the 60's with blasts from the past and Vital Sign played current hits. An air band contest gave the students the chance to rock and roll with the best of them. Coming the week before finals, Springfest was a last chance for students to enjoy the sun and party with friends before the reality of studying for exams set in. Jim Petsche

The Dayton Art Institute played host to 300 seniors and selected faculty members and their escorts. The second annual Senior Ball, sponsored by University Activities Organization, was held April 24. The black-tie affair came to a start in the Great Hall of the Institute, with music provided by the everpopular professor George Zimmerman. The event moved to the Institute's Galleries, where students were wined and dined by the prestigious Dayton caterer, Nathan Lane. The menu included a spinach salad, broiled marinated steak, puffed potatoes, peas with mushrooms, and croissants. Dessert consisted of fresh fruit with chocalate fondue . The evening continued with dancing. Music was provided by the 17-piece Kim Kelly Orchestra. Selections ranged from 40's swing tunes to pop hits; there was something for everyone. The event took months of planning. The dance was created as a formal intimate salute to graduating seniors, an event which can go down as the classiest memory in the students' scrapbook. Tom Gutman

We Finally Made It To The Years of hard work and the memories of good friends and good times were recognized and rememberd at the University of Dayton's 135th spring Commencement Exercises Sunday April 28. just over 1,300 academic degrees including approximately 1,100 bachelor's degrees, 300 master's degrees, and five earned doctorates were awarded to U.D. students. Honorary degrees were bestowed upon three Dayton men for their service to the community and to the furtherance of higher education. William S. Anderson, Robert j. Kegerreis, Ph.D; and Charles E. Taylor, Ph. D., received the honorary doctorates. Anderson, sixth chairman of the NCR Corporation and architect of the company's major reorganization in the 1970's, received an honorary Doctor of Humanities degree. He has been a leader in the Dayton community, especially in behalf of the University. The two other doctorates were awarded to retiring presidents of other Miami Valley universities. Kegerreis, retiring from Wright State University, was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Education. Kegerreis is completing his 12th year at WSU. Taylor retired from Wilberforce University in 1984. He also received an Honorary Doctor of Education degree. U.D. graduates celebrated commencement week with school and departmental awards dinners, the Senior Ball, the Baccalaureate Mass and a dance at the U.D. fieldhouse sponsored by the U.D.

The Year Came In August saw the return of students to on-and off-campus areas to begin a new school year. When students returned they heard of the resignations of two deans: one in business and one in engineering. Also when students returned, they saw a series of renovations that were done throughout the summer. The month of September began with the 1984 Flyer football team opening its season on a winning note with a 21-24 victory over Slippery Rock. Another sport, basketball, was not so fortunate as it was a announced that Ed Young underwent knee surgery which could force him to miss the 1984-85 season. In September, Maureen Reagan spoke in the Kennedy Union Ballroom, and the International Marian Research Institute in the University's Marian Library celebrated its approval as a Pontifical Institute incorporated with the Marianum in Rome.

October was the beginning of a $38 million fund-raising campaign for the University. October was also the beginning of a revised dance policy for Wampler Arena Center. Homecoming was October 13 in 1984. The queen was Heather Bersch, who was crowned during the halftime festivities of the game vs. Anderson College. The Flyers won 38-0, to up their record to 6-0. Likewise, Bella Abzug, longtime activist in womens' rights, spoke in the KU Ballroom . In November, there was the largest number of participants in the Clean Sweep November 1 - 391! The political trail continued as Geraldine Ferraro made her second campaign stop in Dayton. In the presidential election November 7, President Reagan and Vice President George Bush were re-elect ed to their respective offices. Domino's delivers breakfast! What?

breakfast items. And the University updated its communication network with the installat ion of a new $3 million digital telephqne system. In December, the band organized a petition against its directors. The Flyer News put out its first ever fullcolor photo. The issue featured Santa Claus on the cover. Other highlights included spot color on the cover and the middle pages. The semester wound down quickly with just a few classes remaining. Exams and Christmas on Campus also made the time left in t he school year dwin dle quickly. After returning from Christmas break, the University of Dayton students found out that there was once again going to be an increase in tuition. The tuition increase, 10.7 percent , was approved by the U niversit y Board of Tr ustees. On the 28th o f january, the Flyers defeated Miami University at the UD Arena 63-54, avenging an earlier loss to the Redskins. Dr.

Where Did It Go~

W illiam Schuerman was named Vice President for Student Development and Dean of Students. Curtis Sliwa, founder of the Guardian ngels, highlighted the month of February with a speech to a standingr oom-only audience in the KU Ballroom. Sliwa said he believed people needed to fight back against crime and help each other. The University Activities Organization (U AO) proposed an escort service to the University administration and later received an OK. UAO set a tentative starting date of March 18. A lso in February was the Turnabout Dance where Tony "Mr. T" Mollo was crowned Turnabout King. M arch brought siblings to the

University of Dayton campus. March also brought Dr. Edward Garten as he was named Director of University Libraries. Campaign violations plagued Student Association candidates in March. The ticket of jim Doty and Greg Werckman was found in violation of election rules because they did not make an effort to remove three women who were campaigning in Stuart Hall during election hours.

Publicity came to the University after a proposed referendum by the SA. Newspapers as well as television and radio stations reported on the referendum which was that in the case of a nuclear attack, the Gosiger Health Center should stockpile suicide pills. The purpose of the referendum, to appear on the SA Directorate ballot, was to increase students' awareness of nuclear war. The referendum did not pass.

Alan Hemler and Theresa Stelzer were elected as new SA President and Vice President. And a resignation took place in University Activities that of Mary Rose Zink, UA's program director.

This year brought many new changes and growth that was sometimes difficult, but always brought us closer to our Omega points. We now proceed onward to another eventful and challenging year, whether it be at the University or beyond its walls. Adapted from the Flyer News

April marked the end of the year as the spring semester came to a close.

Flyer Football Is When August rolled around and the University of Dayton's football team began two-a-day practices, many felt 1984 was the year they would go all the way to a Division Ill championship. They did not get that far, losing in the playoffs to eventual winner Augustana College; but there were few disappointments in a 10-1 season. Dayton's first opponent was Slippery Rock, a team that had embarrassed the Flyers in 1983. This time the Flyers were victorious 24-14 as first-yearstarting quarterback, Phil Nussman, silenced his critics by completing 13 of 24 13asse s for 150 yards and a touchdown. After a 24-0 win over Otterbein, Dayton had its first of three straight shutouts. Next was Butler. This was touted as another revenge game as the Bulldogs had demolished Dayton a year earlier. And the Flyers got revenge with a 34-0 shellacking of Butler. The following week the Flyers traveled to Olivet, Mich., to take on Olivet College. The six-hour drive must have seemed useless to Dayton as the Flyers returned with a 59-0 shutout and several school records.

yard gain. Flyer Head Coach Mike Kelly was to call it "the greatest catch I've ever seen at any level of play anywhere." Even Pitzer did riot -realize he had three men covering him until he saw films of the game. The pass set up Dayton's third touchdown with Wilkins running for the six points. The Flyers pulled off a 22-21 victory. Call it a cliche, but it was a heartstopping, breathtaking win. The Flyers racked up wins over Wabash, West Virginia Wesleyan, DePauw, and Taylor to close out regular season play with a perfect 10-0 record. After the final 62-3 trouncing over Taylor, the Flyers spent a nervous weekend waiting for a phone call giving them a playoff bid. When the call came, the University learned it not only had the bid, but it would also have the home-field advantage in its first-round contest against Augustana. Augustana coach Bob Reade was furious that Dayton got the home-field advantage when his team had a higher ranking. He told members of the Dayton media, "You know it isn't right. The

number one team should never have to go anywhere." He need not have complained. The Augustana Vikings were too much fo r Dayton, as they came from behind to beat the Flyers 14-13. Another heartbreaker, but this time it was Dayton's heart that was breaking. 1984 marked t he close of the football careers of some of the University's finest players. Quad-captains Dave Kemp, Mark Herr, Jim Jeter, and Jeff Slayback kept the team togethe r all year. Defensive end Craig Erlanger and tackle John Kenny were cheated out of a full season by injuries. Fullback Wilkins came short of breaking the all-time school record for touchdowns in a season. Though the Flyers finished th e season with a loss in the Division Ill playoffs, no one w ill eve r be abl e to take away the perfect 10-0 regular season record the Flyers worked hard and long to achieve. Nancy Meckstroth Cindy Cardinal

Three straight shutouts was a feat no Flyer team since 1948 had accomplished. Against Olivet, the Flyers collected 36 first downs, 32 of them on the ground, to set two school records. And next was Baldwin-Wallace. Dayton and Baldwin-Wallace entered the game with matching 5-0 records and a playoff berth in t he North Region at stake. Lose the game, and both teams knew they could kiss the ir playoff hopes goodbye. For three quarters Dayton seemed ready and willing to take that loss. Then, down 18-3 in the final quarter, the Flyers came alive. Fullback Tony Wilkins scored two touchdowns to bring victory within reach, but time was running out. The n, with three B-W men on him, receiver Jim Pitzer reached up and grabbed a Nussman pass for a 30-

Flyers Hustle To Offer The soccer season was challenging for the team . Pete Hayes had his first season with the Flyer team. Hayes is the former boys' coach at Chaminade-julienne High School. The four graduating seniors were Dean Burgess, Keith Reinhard, Rob Fosheim, Scott Callahan, and Jerry Welch. Burgess with six goals and two assists received Most Valuable Player Award. The toughest game of the season was against Bowling Green University. Although the Flyers lost in overtime the game proved passing and hustling offered stiff competition. The highlight of the season was when the Flyers won the indoor soccer tournament at Wilmington College.

Stiff Competition!


First Season Of Women's Soccer Though the University of Dayton's women's soccer team finished their first season as a varsity sport with a losing record, their play against already well-established programs was a sign of how well they progressed throughout the season. The Lady Flyers finished the season with a 5-8-4 record and a 5-3-2 record in the North Star Conference, which was sufficient for them to finish fourth in the conference and thus qualify for the playoffs. Dayton lost its first playoff game to Xavier University in a shutout, 2-0. Then Dayton took on Wilmington College in the consolation game and lost 3-1 . The lone Flyer goal was scored by Tracy Enderle with an assist by Julie Raiff. The Dayton team was one of young walkens and few would have expected the success they had . Head Coach Tom Schindler feels "pretty good about the season overall . .. everybody we played respected us and we reached the goal we had set at the outset of the season of winning five games." But perhaps most importantly, Schindler feels that this has improved the caliber of his players. The youth of the team seems to indicate that there are better days ahead for the Lady Flyers' soccer program as this was the inaugural year for women's soccer as a varsity sport. Don Dravis

Cross Country Tests Endurance Of Dayton's Men And Women

The 1984 edition of the women's cross country team was by far the most successful women's running squad ever at the University of Dayton. There was a trio of freshmen ladies who more than adequately filled the void created by the graduation of last year's (1983's) top three lady runners. Not only did this trio fill the void, they set a few school records along the way.

Heights Invitational. Zaremba consistently finished behind Vance and Weiss all year.

Vickie Vance and Diane Weiss were this year's record-setters while Kathy Zaremba was hot on their trail only seconds off their record pace. Vance shattered the previous women's retord in the Butler University Invitational. Vance set the new school record with a time of 20 minutes and 18 seconds for the 3.1 mile race. The record was short lived though, as Weiss then beat Vance's record by running a 19 minute, 10 second race at the Sienna

The women's squad was coached by Pat Miller and his assistant Anne Nicolay. Nicolay was a pioneer in the University's women's cross country program when it started three years ago and returned to coach after graduating in 1984. Her presence as coach was a testament to the dedication of these young lady runners as they continue to pound the pavement ... and the beat goes on.


The efforts of these talented young ladies, in combination with returning letterman Susan Brady and newcomer Cheryl Venaas have helped solidify the women's cross country program as a legitimate inter-collegiate sport after only three short years.

The University of Dayton's men's cross country team, under second year head coach Pat Miller, finished the season with a 4-3 record in non-tournament matches. Despite early-season injuries to key runners such as junior Matt Duffy and junior co-captain Tom Gonsalves, the squad was bolstered by newcomers Kevin Baldwin, Chris Warwick, Tony O'Leary, and Tom Doring. These newcomers joined with returning letterman Tom Hammell and senior co-captain Tim McNeil to form a competitive pack of runners. Co-captain Gonsalves returned midway through the season and added more stability to an ever-improving squad. The top highlight of the season was a first place finish by the Flyers in a tri-meet hosted by rival Xavier University in Cincinnati. Co-captain McNeil had the best time for the Flyers as he did in every meet of the season. This year's men's cross country squad marked the largest team in the history of the program. Dermott Cooke

Let's hear it for the women's tennis team. This year proved to be the best ever for the Lady Flyers. The team broke all of the University's past records with a glorious finish of 11-1. After winning 11 straight matches, the perfect record was ruined by a loss to the University of 路 Evansville.

by the teammates. Assisting her was technique coach Pat Martin, whose enthusiasm produced positive results with the players. Also leading the team were three captains: Anne Wenstrup, Sara Billingsley, and Stacie Clark. This trio of seniors made up the number two, three, and four positions on the squad.

The North Star Conference Tournament, held in Evansville, was a happy ending to the season. The event was won by Notre Dame, with Evansville in second place, Butler taking third, and Dayton just two points behind to grab fourth. Freshman Kim Stickney, the team's number six player, not only managed to remain undefeated during the regular season but also finished second at the conference. In addition, doubles team Sara Billingsley and Anne Wenstrup also took second place.

Two of the sophomore players, Missy Koziatek and Katie Webb, had previously played for the University too. Among ne wcome rs, sophomore Gerri Cassidy looks to be the most promising, although she was given tough competition in the number one spot. Some outstanding singles records were held by Wenstrup with 11-2, Billingsley with 10-2, Clark with 9-2, and Condemarin with 8-1. The Meakin-Koziatek doubles team finished 8-1.

This was Head Coach Teresa C. Shutzman's fourth and final year at Dayton. He r coope ration and devotion has been much appreciate d, espe cially

With all their outstanding accomplishments and workmanship, the women's tennis team ce rtainly can be proud of its performance. Gerri Cassidy Traci Eckert

Field Hockey Sticks A Tough Season The University of Dayton's field hockey team pushed its way through a tough fall in 1984, finishing 3-16. The Lady Flyers opened the season with the toughest part of the schedule. They dropped their first seven games including a heart-breaking loss to Eastern Michigan, in which the game was tied 0-0 after regulation and two overtimes, but was 3-1 in favor of Eastern Michigan in flick-offs. Dayton won two of three after starting 0-7, beating Ashland 1-0 and Earlham 1-0 around a loss to Eastern Kentucky. Ohio University beat the Lady Flyers 3-2 in overtime after the Earlham win. They did not win again until three games later when they knocked off Franklin College 1-0. November 1, started the beginning of the postseason tournament in St. Louis, Missouri. All the North Star Conference teams competed in the tournament. Although the Lady Flyers did not place in the tournament, it was good experience for the players. Senior Kathleen Graesar, the 1983 Most Valuable Player and co-captain, led the team in scoring for the second year straight with six goals and four assists. junior janine Gilbert, the former goalie, also had six goals, with three assists. Freshman Laura Gillespie had three goals, and seniors Lisa Creech and Lori Magee rounded out Dayton's scoring with one goal and one assist apiece. On the defensive side, junior Anne Marie Flynn had an excellent season, along with Renee Bilodeau, who was injured for a while. Co-captain Amy Parker also had a great defensive season as the sweeper. Coach Anne Buck will return ten letter winners for 1985, led by Gilbert. Buck is anticipating that her third season at the Lady Flyers helm will be her best yet. Laura Gillespie

Dramatic Changes For The Water men

Chris H omola


The University of Dayton Water Polo team made a dramatic change this year, having completed their first winning season ever. This was only the third year the water polo team was recognized as the varsity sport and not a club by the University. The team's record this year was 1210-1, with major victories at the Dayton Invitational and the Cleveland State Tournament where the watermen took second place at both outings. The Flyers also took third place at the Arkansas Invitational and the W & L Fall Classic. The Flyers played bigger names during the 1984-85 season with Ohio State and Indiana making their appearances at UD's Physical Activities Center.

with 77 goals. Alvarez, who was 1984's most valuable player, also had the most goals per game average of 3.9. Todd Spees maintained the highest shooting percentage of the team with 78 percent for the year. Todd Myers led the watermen in assists with 51 . Myers was asked to be one of the Ohio All-Stars. The Flyers finished with 14.9 goals per game with a 51 percent shooting average from the field. The outlook for the 1985 season is even better for the watermen, with the Flyers psyched for another season with a new slate and the desire to win. Jim Maclearie

The leading waterman was Felix Alvarez

A Rebuilding Year For The With only five returning players, 1985 could be considered a rebuilding year for the University of Dayton's volleyball team. Headed by coach Jeryl Neff and assistant coach Carol Westbeld, the team ended the season with a record of 2-27. Neff attributed the losses to a lack of experience, but added that the record itself did not tell the whole story. According to Neff, the team did not get "blown out" of any games. Their first win was against the University of Kansas, and the second against the University of Florida, who in 1984 was ranked in the top 20. Although they lost to Xavier, who eventually won the conference, the Xavier coach told Neff that the Flyers were the "most competition that anyone in the conference provided them all year." Xavier's coach also added that if Dayton had the same team next year with a little more experience, he was sure Dayton would upset Xavier. Lead by co-captains Karen Stack and Diane Smiley, the Flyers' outstanding matches of the year were against Mt. St. joe and Xavier, both matches in which Dayton gave the opponent a run for their money. The Most Valuable Player of the year was awarded to senior Karen Stack. Recipient of the Coach's Award was Renee Wullkotte. Neff hopes the season was not too discouraging for the players and hopes the team will return in the Fall of 1985 ready to play a more successful season.

One Out Of Two Isn't Bad

Before this season started, University of Dayton's Hockey coach Walt DeAnna, said that his team would go undefeated and predicted that Dayton would win the Midwestern College Hockey League title. One out of two isn't bad. The Flyers 5-2 victory over Taledo crowned the MCHL champions. For the Flyers, it was their first title since .1981.

to their only tie of the season and lost their second contest of the year, the Flyers got back on the winning track by posting five victories in the next six matches, including a pair of game sweeps against rivals Kentucky Wesleyan and Cincinnati.

As the MCHL playoffs arrived, Dayton had to play Dennison, a team defeated the Flyers in the next to the last match of the season. Also, going Though the Flyers didn't go undeinto the playoffs, Dayton was openly feated, finishing with a 13-4-1 criticized that they had been record, they started the season in skating slow and were often caught the near unbeatable fashion. DeAnna's standing around on the ice. Senior crew won its first five games by a Doug Willse "Talked about it in the combined score of 54-4, before locker room. I guess you could say losing their next match to Indiana 6-1. that fired us up." The Flyers' play reflected it as they whipped DenAfter a very physical two-game series nison 6-0. For the championship with Toledo, in which Dayton skated game, Dayton was to take on Toledo.


"We wanted to prove we were a better team," said senior Marty Walsh. " We knew we could beat them and we did. It felt great!" The victory was sweet for everyone. DeAnna said "The guys played great they really got together and played the type of hockey they were capable of playing." For team captain Keith Johnson, the team's leading scorer, there could be no better feeling. Said Johnson, "I'm going out with a bang and it feels great." Not only was this season successful because of the championship title but also that this team consisted of eleven freshmen, which gives the future a very optimistic outlook. 路 Tony O'Leary

Here Comes The Flyers Going into the 1984-85 men's basketball season, there wasn't much optimism for Dayton to be nearly as good as last year's NCAA final eight team. With Roosevelt Chapman's career over, and a season-ending injury to Ed Young, it seemed as if the deck was stacked against the Flyers. But once again Coach Don Donoher and his team were to prove the critics wrong as Dayton was ready to take on one of its toughest schedules in many years. This year also marked the first time Dayton was to play the other major independents, DePaul, Marquette, and Notre Dame in both home and away games. After splitting the first six games, Dayton caught fire and won 11 of the next 12 games. Among them was a victory over the then top-20 ranked Maryland, in which Sedric Toney ignited the second half rally turning a five-point Maryland lead into a fourpoint Dayton win. Then it was Damon Goodwin's sizzling outside shooting that gave Dayton a win over rival Miami, in which Goodwin scored a career high 26 points. Then, for the second year in a row, Dayton

upended the DePaul Blue Demons on a shot at the buzzer. All doubts about whether Dave Colbert's shot came before or after the game had ended were put to rest eleven days later when Dayton beat DePaul again in a heated confrontation on the Blue Demon's home court. The Dayton victory ended a 36-game home court win streak for DePaul. After losing three straight road games the Flyers returned home to win three of their final four games. Anthony Grant sparked the Dayton win over rival Marquette with 18 points and a career high 14 rebounds. A double overtime loss to Notre Dame before 13,511 fans - the second largest crowd in the arena's history - put a cap on the Flyers' regular season. The loss ended the Flyers' 14 game homecourt winning streak - an arena record. The University of Dayton Arena was the host site for the first and second rounds of the 1985 NCAA Southeast Regionals, and Dayton being invited to the tournament for the second year in a row, the Flyers would end up playing at home in the firsnound against Villanova - the eventual

NCAA champion. Matched against Villanova, the Flyers and Wildcats both struggled in a hotly contested game, and when Sedric Toney's jumper rolled in out and out of the rim in the final seconds, Dayton finished the 1984-85 season with a 19-10 record. Against Villanova, Dayton shot 17 for 17 from the free throw line, which is not only a school record but also a NCAA tournament record for first and second round games. Dayton's .504 field goal percentage for the season is the school's second best ever. Despite losing their last two games, Coach Donoher and his Flyers can still look back on this season with pride for Dayton was very successful with one of its hardest schedules ever. Tony O'Leary

We Went Right To Work


O nce again the N.C.A.A. basketball tournament was a successful event for the University of Dayton Athletic De partment. Because of the excellent community support, all three days of tournament play were sold out. The large crowds this year were due in part by the presence of popular area teams, the University of Miami Redskins and, of course, the University of Dayton Flyers. Top-ranked teams in the country, Michigan, Villanova, and Maryland also drew the capacity crowds. The N.C.A.A. comm ittee likes to hold tournament games in Dayton because of its excelle nt community backing. Since 1970, the University of Dayton has hosted the N.C.A.A. tournament twelve ti mes, and the tournaments have raised a great deal of money for the University over the years. The Athletic Department, headed by

Tom Frericks and Gene Schill, had their hands full this year. Never before have there been eight teams playing at one location. For the Southeast Regional, the University of Dayton accomodated eight teams and about two hundred and fifty media members - a sizable task. Plans for a smooth operation started three months in advance at the N.C.A.A. convention in Dallas, Texas. During the week before the actual tournament, many of the Athletic Department staff members worked overtime on the project. "Sunday night we watched CBS Sports like everyone else and heard what teams and what Regional we would host," explained Brett Hoover, athletic staff member. "Then we went right to work that night." Monday, contracts were made with the press. Tuesday and Wednesday, kinks in the

production were ironed out. Thursday eight individual team practices and press conferences were held. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, the N.C.A.A. Southeast Regional was played. The Regional had some close and exciting matchups, with the near upset of the University of Michigan by Farleigh-Dickenson University And the eventual winner of the N.C.A.A. tournament, Villanova, came from our Regional. The close games and the smooth behind-the-scenes production made for an excellent tournament. Congratulations to the University's Athletic Department for hosting a successful and profitable N.C.A.A. tournament. Tom Mayer

Jumping Into Division I Was .

Going into the 1984-85 season, head basketball coach Linda Makowski was facing one of toughest coaching tasks she has had while here at Dayton. Not only was the team starting the year minus two All-Americans to graduation, but also the Lady Flyers had jumped to Division I and were to compete in the North Star Conference for the first time. It was tall orde r to fill, and the season started as many thought it would go. At one point in the season, Dayton was 5-7 and senior co-captain Leah Abla, a 1983-84 All-American, was sidelined with a knee injury. But strong showings in confere nce play game s in the second half of the season allowe d the Lady Flyers to finish the year with a respectable 17-11 record overall and an 11-3 North Star Conference record, good enough for second place. The first half of the season had Dayton be ing introduce d to Divison I basketball the hard way. The Lady


Flyers went to Florida for the Women's Court Classic in Miami and lost two of three . The only bright spot was in the 91-77 win over St. John's. 6'5" center Theresa Yingling, an honorable mention All-American, scored a team and season high of 26 points and grabbed 16 rebounds. In the game, UD set a new school record for free throws made (33) and attempted (43) in a game. Dayton beat rival Marquette by 38 points then lost to national powers Kentucky (69-62) and Cincinnati (6766) before starting conference play. The Lady Flye rs waste d no time in establishing themselve s in North Star battle as the y won five straight games by an average margin of 15 points. The only close game was a 63-60 decision over Evansville. In the game senior Sharon Curd scored five points in the last three minutes as UD outscored the Lady Aces for the come -from-behind win. Also, in this stretch, UD hit the century mark

against Xavier, winning 100-74. Dayton's streak was halted by Western Ke ntucky, an eventual NCAA Final Fo ur te am. In a NSC showdown with Notre Dame , Leah Abla scored her 1,000 career point, but her twelve-point performance in the game could not turn back the Lady Irish, who prevailed 81-66, giving Dayton the ir first NSC loss. Lady Flyers guard, Mary Byers' 18-foot buzzer shot gave the Lady Flyers a 56-54 victory over Detroit. Theresa Yingling score d he r 1,000th point in a loss to Loyola (67-63), which was Dayton's second NSC loss. The Lady Flyers ended the season on a high note by winning six of their last seven games and putting a successful ending to their first year of Division I confe re nce play. Tony O'Leary

Netters Play With Pizazz As weather varied from day to day, so did the play of the University of Dayton men's tennis team. Over the season, the netters had their days of defeat and victory. Most of the season, the Flyers practiced indoors at the Physical Activities Center. This of course was due to Dayton weather. "You play well where you practice. You have the homecourt advantage," senior Peter Rogers said. "A court is a court outside. We've been practicing two months indoors, and it has been a big advantage for us most of the time." Playing number one spot was tough for Rogers, but he was dedicated with a record of 6-10 in singles and 6-6 in doubles. His record may not be much but it certainly must mean something because he was voted by his teammates as the Most Valuable Player of the Year. "It's not great," head coach Jim Larkin said. "But it is tough playing number one spot because you are basically playing the best players from each school." Another Flyer that was also dedicated to his tennis team was Ken Lutke with a individual record of 6-4. Although Dayton weather dampened practices it didn't dampen the men's tennis team's dedication for the 1985 season.

Just A Little More Luck The University of Dayton baseball Flyers had an adjustment to make for the 1985 season. That adjustment was playing for first-year manager Tom Fries, and his Flyers responded with 15 wins - the most of any Flyer team since 1980, when it won 17. Dayton didn't start the season well (nine losses in 11 games) and finished even worse (nine straight losses), but in between those skids, the Flyers went 13-19-1 (.409) and played their best ball in the last few games. With a little luck here and there, Dayton could have won a few more games, as the Flyers lost 18 games by three runs or less. The Flyers played near .500 ball at Stuart Field on campus (11-14-1; .442) but faltered on the road, winning just four of 27 games away from the University - including 11 straight road losses to close the season. But Dayton did have some brilliant offensive performances, especially


from Co-Most Valuable Players Chip Galaska and Doug Buschor. Galaska, a senior from Pittsburgh, had his fourth stellar season as a Flyer, as he ended his career at UD in style. The four-year letter-winner led Dayton in games played (53), at bats (160), hits (50), runs batted in (51), doubles (15), home-runs (8), total bases (93), and defensive assists (127). Galaska also hit .313, stole 14 bases, and fielded a .936 average at shortstop. A player who excels at all aspects of the game, Galaska even pitched for the Flyers and allowed no one to reach the base. He ends his career as UD's all-time leader in home runs and runs batted in. Buschor, who was primarily a catcher for the Flyers, was hitting better than .400 almost all season, including a .411 clip after 46 games. But Buschor faded in the last week of the season and his average fell to .369 (48-130). The junior from Kettering, Ohio still led the team in that department,

while he smacked seven homers, nine doubles, and was credited with 20 RBI's. Buschor also walked 35 times to make his on-base percentage a team-leading .562. Other notable offensive performances came from seniors Mark Rykoskey and Rob Butcher, junior Mark Macaluso, and sophomores Damon Brooks, and Dick Rohrberg. Rykoskey, who won the Hustle Award for the Flyers, hit .262 with seven doubles and five homers. He scored 46 times, drove in 26 runs, stole 16 bases, and walked 50 times for an on-base percentage of .566. Butcher hit .289 with nine steals, Macaluso batted .274 with four runs and a team-leading three gamewinning RBI's. Brooks hit .331 (2nd highest on team) with nine doubles and 11 steals while Rohrberg hit .283 with 23 runs batted in and three of each extra-base hit.



And Next Year's Crew Two seniors stood out defensively in 1985 as Rob Fiorelli and Bob Young closed out their UD careers. Fiorelli committed just four errors in 152 chances at second base (.974), while batting .250 with 26 RBI's. Young, another four-year letterwinner, had a .969 fielding average with nearly 300 chances at first base. In the season, Young hit .214 with four homers. As a team, the Flyers hit .281 with 35 home runs, a .421 slugging average, and a .481 on-base percentage. Dayton didn't fare as well on the mound as it did at the plate. UD pitching allowed a 5.90 team earned

run average and 56 home runs. The Flyers' mound troubles stemmed from inexperience. None of the regulars were seniors and just two were juniors, but one of them had never played college ball before and the other had one-year of experience. Mike Devlin led the staff with a 1.56 ERA in 10 relief appearances. He also had two of the Flyers' four saves. Sean Connelly had the team's best record at 4-3 with a 4.81 ERA. Sophomore Bill Brewer had a 4.82 ERA in a team-lead ing 61 innings

pitched. Brewer completed four games en route to a 3-7 record. Freshman Thad Stauber, named Rookie of the Year by Coach Fries, had 41 strikeouts in 57 innings as he compiled a 4-7 mark with a 5.89 ERA. As these pitchers had a growing year in 1985; they may be ready to blossom in 1986. Couple that with an already potent offense which loses just four lettermen, and Tom Fries' crew may surprise a lot of people, including those foes who beat them in 1985. Brett Hoover

St. Joe's Tutoring Club Helps Children By Making Homework An Interesting Task The St. Joseph's Tutoring Club tutors emotionally disturbed children and children with learning disabilities. The children are housed at a treatment center where they also attend school. The St. Joseph's Club goes out to the center four days a week, Monday through Thursday, for an hour a day. University of Dayton students help the children with their homework studies and are a source of support and encouragement for the children. When the children are done with their studies, the tutors spend time playing with the children and just having fun. This includes playing dodge ball, basketball, and, weather

permitting, football, soccer, or frisbee outside. During the year, the club also tries to provide outside activities for the children, such as Christmas on Campus, which they attend. The St. Joe's Club also provides Halloween, Valentine's Day, and end-of-the-year pizza parties. Some other activities have included bowling parties, a trip to an on-campus movie, and University of Dayton basketball games. The St. Joe's Club presently consists of 33 members and is a part of the University's Central Service Clubs.

Association For Computing Machines Shows That Computers Are More Than just Machines The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) is the world's largest professional computer organization. The University of Dayton's Student Chapter of ACM is primarily responsible for serving the needs of all computeroriented students. The organization consists of over 200 students pursuing majors mainly in the areas of computer science, computer science/physics, systems analysis, as well as management information systems, and business. The ACM's purpose is to serve the students and to provide an awareness of the dynamic technology that surrounds us. The University's student chapter has been in existence for over 15 years and has continually accomplished

this unique objective through a speaker series which is supported by the national association. Speakers are invited to lecture on topics ranging from technological advancements to interviewing techniques, and roundtable discussions are also held for smaller groups. The chapter also offers open sessions to the University each semester, telling how to utilize the University's computer systems. It also offers guided tours of the operations department, which houses university-owned computers. A regional programming contest is sponsored each year in which teams of students partake. The ACM is involved in community service projects, such as the basketball

marathon, the MDA Dance Marathon, and Clean Sweep. University-planned activities are also a focus of the ACM which sponsors booths at these events. The annual Computer Science Senior Banquet is sponsored by the ACM as are other semi-formal evenings and informal barbecues to which all faculty and students are invited. The University's students chapter works as an ombudsman for the students and strives for continual unity between the students and the faculty of the computer science department. Diane Tomalis

Cheerleaders Rouse School Spirit Did you ever stop to think as you left the arena or the stadium about all the different things you saw? Did you watch to see what the photographers took pictures of? Did you care where the officials came from? Or what the cheerleaders did besides cheer? Sure you might have liked the dance routine the cheerleaders performed; and sure, you may have thought a mount they did was fantastic; and sure you may have stood up and participated in the "wave," but what do the cheerleaders do besides cheer? They are involved with several campus events, such as, Up the Organization's Day, "Rudy's" Birthday Party~ Oktoberfest, The Best of U.D., and decorating the football players' lockeroom. Their community activities include participation in the Optimists' Club's Dinner, the pre-Shriner game

party, promotions for WHIO (a local radio station), promotions for Third National Bank, campaigning Rudy for president, the Children's Parade downtown Dayton, the Cerebral Palsy Marathon, the Steve Kirk Show, judging of local school cheerleading competitions. Though the cheerleaders are high spirited at many events, the most challenging event according to Sandy Pavlak, a co-captain, was a video tape competition. The Ford National Competition breaks down the United States into four regions; the University of Dayton squad finished a respectable 15th in its region. This marked the first time any UD cheerleaders entered a national competition. Ken Doggett

Students For Life: Front Row: Tana Nichols, Maria Durso, Joseph Volk. Second Row: Sheila Maloney, Lisa Morin, Jeanine Warisse, John Welohofer.


Students For Life Students For Life (SFL) first became an organization on campus in the middle 1970's, after the Supreme Court decision in 1973 legalizing abortion. Its purpose is to promote, among its members, a comradeship based on their respect for value and the sanctity of human life. It also tried to foster within the University of Dayton's community an awareness of life issues. In the fall of this 1984-85 school year, SFL had the opportunity to become politically involved by opposing pro-choice candidate Geraldine Ferraro. Its members learned through this experience that sometimes informing people is a lot more effective than pressuring them. During election time SFL passed out literature explaining the Democratic and Republican platforms and their res pective views on human life issues, particularly abortion. In o pposition to Geraldine Ferraro's stand on abortion and other is-

sues, SFL took part in picketing at the Dayton Airport as well as the Ramada Inn, when Ferraro visited Dayton in November 1984. Also in the fall semester, SFL compiled a fact sheet with Bella Abzug's (who was a speaker for the Distinguished Speaker Series) statements and views on women and abortion. SFL also distributed fact sheets on Planned Parenthood and the abortion clinics they run, when they had their annual Book Pick Up at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in October. They wanted people, who were dropping off old books for Planned Parenthood, to know where the money made on the books was going to be spent.

2-3 mile "Run-For-Life," which gives students a chance to start their exercise for spring and also support a worthwhile cause. Any profits made by Students For Life, whether it be from the collection at Mass, or any other activity is donated to the Dayton Right to Life Society at the end of the year, in appreciation for their support and also to help continue their work throughout the year.

As SFL looks into possibilities for next year, they hope to have Dr. Bernard Nathanson, past staff member of one of the largest abortion clinics in the U.S., come to speak and show a film. SFL hopes to get more politically involved by writ"Weaving a Seamless Garment" was the ing to senators and congressman, as theme of SFL's annual pro-life Mass well as just keeping informed on in March. SFL, as a club, is trying different life issues - whether they to bond different pro-life issues be abortion, euthanasia, capital together, which most service clubs punishment, world hunger, ... and on campus are involved in, so that the list goes on and on. they may all work together for the Sheila Maloney protection of "Life." In April, SFL sponsors the annual

Management Information Systems Club Supports A New Major: MIS Towards the end of the 1982-83 school year, the basis for the Management Information Systems (MIS) major was well underway, and at the same time, an organization was developed to go along with the new program. Mary Padgett and Adam lazlo started the new professional organization, and were the leaders of the Management Information Systems Club during its charter year. The MIS Club, in its second year, increased its membership three-fold and now includes over 70 students. The purpose of the organization is to enable the students to learn about jobs in the MIS field; to -develop a professional and ethical attitude toward MIS; and to expose its members to new ideas and concepts that develop in the field of MIS. All of this is done through speakers, reports, industry publications, and trips. During the 1984-85 school year the club met every other week. Key speakers came in periodically through-

members the chance to talk one-to-one with professionals in their field . It also provided the opportunity for the businessmen to become acquainted with the new department, and the people involved with the MIS program at the University of Dayton.

out the year to relate to the students their experiences at various local firms. The idea of their talks was to provide actual examples of how concepts learned in the classroom are used in real world situations. The MIS Club participated in the "Best of U.D." during the fall session. Members were located at a booth in Kennedy Union for the Decision Science Department. They, along with certain faculty members, entertained questions and helped to distribute information. Other members were located in the BTl Center, a center for computer-oriented majors, and the NCR Microcomputer Center located in the basement of Miriam Hall. There they demonstrated the uses of the equipment to the visitors that stopped by.

Additionally, there were two socials held by the MIS Club. The first had a wine and cheese theme, as members got to know one another and also got the chance to talk to the faculty members on a personal basis. The second was a joint social with the student chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery. The MIS Club concluded the year by holding its first annual "Senior Dinner". The first class to graduate from the MIS program was honored at the dinner. It was a time to reflect, to give thanks, to offer best wishes, and to say farewell.

The MIS Club sponsored a "Career Day" dinner held at the McGinnis Center. It was a formal dinner catered by Ponderosa, with local businessmen and faculty present to provide

lowshares Promotes Awareness Of Peace And Social Justice Issues Around The World "They shall beat their swords into plowshares," (Isaiah 7:14). Plowshares is an organization which is unique among the University of Dayton's Central Service Clubs since its main focus is not to provide a direct service to the Dayton community, as do other service clubs. Rather, Plowshares deals with issues which are much less tangible and more difficult to grapple with because their origins and outcomes are as clear to see as the bottom of a clouded pool. It is dedicated to increasing awareness of peace and social justice issues on campus - not an easy task in today's conservative college environment!

cide with the title of PSI's newsletter, Plowshares, which is the main forum for dealing with the often ambiguous issues of peace and justice. Its philosophy is one of active non-violence - that is, the pursuit for peaceful alternatives of reconciliation instead of deliberately chosen violence in situations of conflict.

Plowshares is the direct descendant of the University's Peace Studies Institute (PSI), which was active in the peace movement of the late 1960's and early 1970's. The name was changed in the Fall of 1983 to coin-

Plowshares activities, including speakers, films, and the newsletter, are intended to spur throught and discussion and critical thinking about the complex problems facing the world.

rights, aid of hunger relief projects, and education about the struggle for freedom in latin America. In the 1983-84 school year, Plowshares was instrumental in the work to successfully establish a University chapter for "Bread for the World", a Catholic lobby group which deals with the legislative aspect of hunger issues. In 1984-85, Plowsharers organized Central America Information Week, and featured films and speakers as well as a forum on liberation Theology. In short, Plowshares has a vision of seeking justice for all peoples. It finds much hope and reassurance in the beatitudes, "Blest too are the peacemakers; they shall be called sons of God," (Matthew 5:9) Victor J. Amram, Jr.

All Good Gifts All good gifts around us Are sent from heaven above, So thank the Lord, oh thank the Lord For all his love. - "All Good Gifts" from "Godspell" Music is the main gift uniting the 30 people involved with the University of Dayton's showchoir Celebration. The 22 singers and the four band members are students from every school of the University, representing majors from finance and premed to engineering and English. Brother Bruce Giffin commutes from Cincinnati, where he is finishing his doctorate in biology, to Dayton to direct rehearsals on Wednesday and Sunday nights.

Cheryl Jakobus, from Kay's School of Dance, teaches the choreography. Since its beginning in 1976, Celebration has taken its music to University and community groups throughout Ohio. This year the group performed at three Parents' Weekends, the International Tea, Colleagues Luncheon, and Christmas on Campus as part of their 35-show schedule. For Celebration, the 1984-1985 school year was a year for roadtrips. The group took a bus to Granville, Ohio, to do a benefit show for a battered women's fund. They also pe rformed at Scioto Country Club, in Columbus, for the Ohio Academy of Medicine. All road shows, both in Dayton and elswhere in Ohio, are made easier through the efforts of Todd Barker, the group's props manager, while Alexis McHenry captures the group's travels with her photographs.

Members of this service club sing and dance to a wide range of music. Their repetoire features such numbers as "Jump (For My Love)'' by the Pointer Sisters, Chicago's "You're My Inspiration," a medley from "Grease," a Broadway medley, and a medley of The biggest adventure for CeleAlabama's country music. While bration occurred over the February Giffin handles the vocal rehearsing, break when the group headed for New

York City. Despite having an accident on the Pennsylvania Turnpike, the group spent three enjoyable days touring and performing. On Friday night, February 15, Celebration entertained University alumni at the Rainbow Room on Rockefeller Center's 64th floor. The following Sunday, they were the featured singers at St. Patrick's Cathedral for the 11:45 a.m. Mass. This roadtrip served to bring Celebration members closer and reinforced the family feeling that the group develops. Beginning with a three-day camp over Labor Day weekend, members practice and socialize while learning music and about each other. Celebration's lfamily feeling is at its peak each April when the annual Spring Concert is held. On that night, friends, family and Celebration alumni join the performers for two hours of energetic music. Tears mix with the audience's applause when graduating seniors take their final bows.

Sigma Tau Epsilon Is Academic Excellence Sigma Tau Epsilon sorority was chartered in 1983 by 15 girls who felt that through a unified effort, they could make a real difference on the University of Dayton's Campus, as well as in the Dayton community. The Founding Sisters decided to add a new aspect to the many outstanding Greek organizations at the University, by forming a social sorority addressed specifically to girls with challenging academic lives. This is especially evident in their pledge period, which features all activities pre-scheduled so pledges can plan their studying around them. Sigma Tau Epsilon's first year was spent as a colony of the Pan-Hellenic Council. This meant they acted as a regular sorority except that they could not take pledges. They spent

this first year establishing such annual service projects as Hug路A-Thon, for the American Heart Association; blood drives with the Flyer News, the school newspaper; and a Tootsie Roll drive benefitting the Knights of Columbus. In addition, they also concentrated on getting to know the Greek community through parties and other Greek activities. Sigma Tau Epsilon's colors are royal blue and red; their gem is the sapphire; and their motto is "Sisterhood Through Excellence". The objectives laid down in their constitution are to futher develop among members a sense of professionalism, a bond between academic fields, and individual growth through sisterhood.

For A Taste Of Something New Take A Look At Sigma Nu Sigma Nu has a proud tradition as a social service fraternity at the University of Dayton. It is committed to being actively involved both at the University, and in the Dayton community. The brothers represent diverse backgrounds and interests, and are involved in over 50 activities and organizations on and off campus. Sigma Nu's on-campus service during the 1984-85 school year included distributing Homecoming tickets and favors, making decorations for Christmas on Campus (COC), serving on the COC Committee, and participating in both fall and, spring clean sweeps. Off-campus services included taking underprivileged children to a University football game, donating to the Sigma Tau Epsilon needy family fund during the holidays, serving on the Special Olympics of greater Dayton Publicity Committee, and finally, the fraternity's largest philanthropy project - the annual Sigma Nu Game Ball Run for Cystic Fibrosis. This

year the brother's ran the game ball from South Bend, Indiana, to the University's Arena, some 220 miles, for the Dayton vs. Notre Dame basketball game. Along w ith its many service projects, Sigma Nu has an active social schedule. The fraternity presented two campus-wide parties, "Rudy's Birthday Bash," which celebrated the University's lovable mascot's birthday, and the " Sigma Nu Halloween Bash II," which is fast becoming one of the University's, best annual parties. This year over 600 ghosts, ghouls and goblins, attended the Monster Bash. The Sigma Nu social schedule also included parties with other fraternities and sororities, among them parties with Lambda Nu, Alpha Phi, and Sigma Tau Epsilon sororities and Delta Gamma Ome ga fraternity . Partie s with the Sigma Nu Little Sisters included the Christmas fix-up dance and the 1st annual " White Rose" formal, held at the Hilton's Crystal Ballroom.

Sigma Nu also fielded competitive teams in both intramural and interfraternity sports. Sigma Nu placed second in fraternity softball, had several w inning wrestlers along w ith champion relay and cross country teams. Be ing students, academics are naturally important to the Sigma Nu Brothers, and they are proud to have maintained a good grade point average. As a result of its academic success, Sigma Nu is being considered for the frat ernities' highest academic award the Gallagher Cup. During the second semester of the 1984-85 school year, Sigma Nu celebrated its路 first ann iversary on February 10, 1985. This marked the fraternity's first year as a chapter of Sigma Nu. At the core of the year's efforts was the steadfast be lief that the fraternity's ideas of love, truth, and honor can best be lived out through service to others. Patrick Haverland

The visit went very well and the board members left the University with a favorable impression . During the June board meeting, the University's petition was again a topic of discussion to determine whether it would receive a chapter in the fall of 1985 or if it would have to wait another year.

elp Of The Daytonian Staff Interviewing, researching, reporting, feature writing, copy editing, designing layout and artwork, nd applying organizational skills, are all intricate ingredients of a p ublication, the Daytonian Yearbook. The 1984-85 staff has chosen the O mega Point as the basic structure for the theme. This was done by p resenting the 1984-85 dreams and goals of students, community, and t he University. staff of 50 individuals have s!rived to produce a documentation of yesteryear through photos and copy. The staff's goals or "omega points" were reached in many ways. For instance there is a fall and

winter color section, an innovative graphical theme throughout the pages, a die of the official University of Dayton seal, an inclusion of national and world affairs, and a new approach of organization through the use of computers. The process of planning began in May 1984 and the staff support came within the first day of school in August. The 1984-85 staff was unique. Many different people contributed their talents and ideas in order to reach the various points throughout the year. Some people took the opportunity to gain valuable experience for their majors of English, journalism, communication

arts, and photography, while others gained experience for their majors of management and marketing, and still others joined just for the enjoyment of participating. As the last couple of months quickly passed by, the staff diligently toiled and labored to meet crucial deadlines. It was at this stage of the book's "omega process" that many dreams had become a reality. All the ingredients of a publication were combined by many individuals who played the leading roles of this yearbook creation.

Transition At University Of Dayton: Omegas BecomeAipha Phi This past year a transition occurred as Omega Sorority became affiliated with Alpha Phi International Fraternity. In September, Omega, which was founded in 1938, decided to become a chapter of a national sorority to further their growth. They applied to most of the National Pan-Hellenic Sororities and entertained representatives from Alpha Phi and Alpha Gamma Delta sororities. In November, they decided to apply to Alpha Phi to become a colony and the waiting began. During this period Omega inducted 30 new girls, bringing their number to 40. On November 26, 1984 Omega entertained five representatives from Alpha Phi International and the local alumni association at Godfather's Pizza on Brown Street. The Alpha Phis were able to meet the Omegas and, by 8:00 a.m. the following morning, it was

official - Omega Sorority would become a colony of Alpha Phi International Fraternity, and the first National Pan-Hellenic Sorority at the University of Dayton. The induction of Omega as a colony took place at 4:30 p.m. on November 27, 1984, and the work began.

The sorority could not have made the transition without the able leadership of collegiates and alumni.

embers Of Big rothers/Big Sisters Befriend hildren Of Dayton Community Forme路d in 1978, the University of Dayton's Big Brothers/Big Sisters chapter works with children from single pare nt families. Although many of these boys and girls have emotional or learning problems, their biggest need is fo r someone to be a friend and show th e m care. Wo rking one-on-one, each student gets paired up with a child through the Big Brothers/Big Sisters' Dayton Age ncy. The University's "Big" spends abo ut three to six hours each week with their "Little", taking him or her to parks, helping with homework, or just being there to talk to. As a campus organization, Big Brothers/Big Sisters participates in mo nthly activities such as roller

skating and bowling to help share expenses. Other favorite activities this year were the annual camping trip in October, and involvement with Christmas on Campus. Big Brothers/Big Sisters works with related University and community events as well. The campus carnival pie throwing booth, hot cider sales for Oktoberfest, and participation in such activities as Clean Sweep and the "Best of U.D." kept the club in touch with University happenings. In addition, sponsoring Homecoming candidate Eileen St. George gave the club a chance to really display its spirit for the school.

an intricate part of the Burg Center, a Miamisburg center for high school youths from broken homes. Weekly visits there gave these youths a chance to share some time with people who wanted to become their friends. This year, the club increased its male membership by over 100% and was successful in matching 29 of its members with children. In addition, 20 other people were in the process of being paired with " Littles". Because of this growth and increased involvement with the University and the Dayton community, this year's Big Brothers/ Big Sisters chapter gained a wider and sharper scope of accomplishments.

The Sky's The limit

Amy Adams Elementary Education

"My philosophy about school is not to limit college just to the classroom, but to get along with other people, to set goals, and to make challenges for yourself," says Robert Curry. Curry is a public relations and broadcasting major with high school certification in public speaking and drama. Curry has been involved with 23 activities during his four years at the University of Dayton, and he puts in a lot of hours with all of them. Bob never does anything half way; he always sees a project through. Curry is one of the Sigma N u fraternity's founding brothers, and has helped coordinate the little sisters program for the fraternity. Campus Ministry is also a very active part of Curry's life, since he helps with the 10:00 PM Mass on Sundays. 路 In addition, he is a member of the Knights of Columbus. Curry's talents do not end there; they also extend into music and drama. He has played tuba in a number of groups on campus, including marching band, wind ensemble, concert band, pep band and a brass quintet. On the stage, Curry involves himself with different presentations from the studio theater. Much of his senior year is spent student teaching at nearby Carrol High School. On the side, he is directing their school play. While, at the same time, he is working at the University as an undergraduate speech facilitator in association with the University's communication arts department. As a facilitator, Curry lends leadership and guidance to the students of speech 101 classes.

He is Executive Administrator and vice president of University Activities. Other organizations which Haverland has had an active role in are the Knights of Columbus, in which he is a Deputy Grand Knight; Celebration, the University's singing ensemble which in February 1985, travelled to New York to perform in Rockefeller Center; and he is also executive vice president of Alpha Kappa Psi. If those are not enough activities to be involved in Haverland, a dean's list student and a member of Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities, was selected a couple of times to represent his peers as a student representative on the National Board of Governors for the University of Dayton Alumni. He is one of ten students at the University to participate in the New York Times survey of American Colleges and Universities 1985-1986. Haverland is a marketing major and a political science minor.

Jim King, a marketing major from Westerville, Ohio, has a bright outlook on the future. King had previously worked as an intern with Domino's Pizza, but because of his outstanding job performance, he now has a full-time position with the company as marketing assistant. King has always been very enterprising. As a freshman, he started a refrigerator rental service in his dorm, and last summer he directed a marketing service called "Ad King." King is also very involved in University activities. He has been in the Marketing Club and the Management Information Systems Club. He has also been the chairman of decorations and entertainment for Friendly Floyd's, chairman of the publicity committee for Christmas on Campus, and chairman for Homecoming '84. Jim is chairman of the Activities Advisory Committee and the student coordinator of the new student orientation committee. Previously, King has been involved in Senior Challenge and in the Reserve Officer Training Corps, which granted him a scholarship. In addition, King has played water polo for a year, as well as many intramural sports. King said that he would sell the University of Dayton to potential students on two points. First, he would tell them that the people at the University of Dayton are unique, students and professors alike. He said that everyone at the University is friendly and will accept you for who you are, so that there is a niche for everyone. Secondly, King said he would tell prospective students that U.D. is an ideal size - small enough so that everyone knows each other, but large enough so that there is a good class selection, exceptional professors, excellent sports teams, and a good r eputation in general. King's dedication to the University of Dayton shows that he thinks it is an outstanding school.

Michelle Lewis has lived an extremely busy college life. She has a dobule major in Communication Arts and English. She believes the University of Dayton is the perfect size because there are "always new people to meet, but it is small enough where you can play a role in the UD community without being some kind of superstar." But a superstar is exactly what most people would consider Lewis. She joined Women in Communications, Inc. as a freshman, moved her way up to vice-president in 1983 and finally became president in 1984, warranting recognition for the University's student chapter. Lewis is the National Liason for Publi c Relations Student Society of America, and the vice-president of Pi Sigma Alpha. In addition, Lewis was one of the founding members of the University's English Association, a social as well as academic organization for English majors. She is the organization's secretary and treasurer . Lewis' experience as a reporter for Flyer News, the University's student newspaper, led her to the part-time job she c urrently has as copy editor for the Dayton Daily News. As copy editor, she is responsible for correcting errors in spelling, grammar, and facts, while also writing headlines and cut lines. In the little spare tim e she has, Lewis en joys planning eating excursions with her friends and buying shoes. Her philosophy in life is, "When the going gets tough the tough sleep!" According to her friends, her favorite saying is, " I must share this with you," a quote she is known for expressing often. The key to surviving her busy schedul e is "organizing her life" with a bag of O'Grady's cheese flavored potato chips.

If she's not on her way to a Delta Sigma Pi meeting, she's at her house on Brown Street maki ng phon e calls about the marketing club, or at an early evening gathering of the Sigma Nu Little Sisters. She might even be on her way to the library for a meeting concerning a class project.

When or if you can catch up with her between m eetings, senior marketing major Mary Pat M cKelvey always seems to be smiling. McKelvey, a r esident of Centerville, has found her home away from home at the University of Dayton.

Mary Pat's decision to attend the University, surprisingly, had nothing to do with its proximity to Centerville. In fact, "MP" (as she is known by her friends) states that was a negative factor. " I really had wanted to go away to school, but once I met the people here, I loved it Now l'in glad I stayed her e because I have the best of both worlds." It is obvious that " MP" has made the most of her four years here - the key was getting involved. In order to round out her marketing background, "MP" chose to join Delta Sigma Pi - the business fraternity. She said, "It's a good opportunity to meet people. The upperclassmen in the fraternity were a help to underclassmen who didn't know what direct ion to take. " In addition, "MP" is vicepresident of finance for the marketing cl ub. "It keeps me busy, but I enjoy t he people in the club and the opport unity to gain exposure to the professional world." Some of "MP'"s other activities have included membership in the Irish Club, UAO, and Sen ior C hallenge.

Travelling through Mexico as a representative of the Immersion Experience Program, lobbying for Bread for the World in Washington D .C., and working as an intern for t he Legal Aid Society of Dayton are some examples of what Mary Noel Moran has done to better understand p eople and the society in which she lives. Noel' s enthusiasm for people is apparent through her active involvement in the community. Her service links include starting a Bread for the World chapter at the University of Dayton, and involvement with Hunger Awareness Week, Mexican Migrant Tutoring, Crop Walk (a hunger walk-a-thon). She is also a member of the Montgomery County Hunger Coalition and Plowshares; while also being involved with a Self-Help Program of Daytonview Community. Moran's academic, leadership qualities also highlight her enthusiasm for education.

Canton, O h io native Kelly Park is a unique person w ith a special degree. She is a photography major with a strong concentration in commercial d esign and illustration along with a commu nicatio ns minor. Park's work has been displayed in many shows and has been published often in Orpheus, t he University of Dayton 's student magazine. The strength behind h er work comes from dedication to the field and many hours of hard work. What sets Park off from the rest is that H ilt Communications, a professional com mercial photography studio, saw her work and designed an internship esp ecially for her. Hilt hired Park permanently in January 1985. Aside from keeping a 3.3 grade point average, Kelly puts in 40 hours a week with this job. She works w ith clients and composes the work so the photographs ca n be made. Since November 1984, Park has also been with HansGraphics, a Dayton graphic arts company, wor ki n g with professional artists and photographers. She even designed t he compan y letterh ead. In addition, Park instructs d rawing, painting and gymnastics at the local YWCA. This is an endeavor she is extremely proud of.

Working at WVUD has given " Michaels" invaluable experience for her double major of Broadcasting and Communications. " Michaels" also holds minors in Marketing and English. In December 1984, she was hired by a video production company that does work for a lot of nonprofit organizations. "It was time to move on," she said, "and if you get the chance to experience something, do it."

" Go sit in a Sunday Mass, walk into Tim's, even show up at a final exam - you' ll feel it, a sense of belonging, feeling of friendship," this sense of family that exists among the people who make up the University of Dayto n is what Mark Smucker likes best. Smucker has served in Student Association (SA) for three years, and as the Director of Academic Affairs for the past two years. He has organized an SA Speaker Series, which brought such speakers as Curtis Sliwa and John Dean to the University. Smucker has also served on the Search Committee for vice-president for Student Development. The fieldhouse events of the 1984 NCAA tournament were another of his unforgettable contributions to the University. Currently, Mr. Smucker is the President of t he University's Model United Nations Club, and is also a member of the University's Honors Program. The Honors Program involves a senior thesis project, which enabled Smucker to do research last summer at the University of Oslo in Oslo, Norway. For his political science major, Smucker has also served internships with State Senator Neal F. Zimmers, Jr., and U.S. Rep. Tony P. Hall.

! Not only does the University of Dayton have a good community but "it's the perfect size" according to communication arts major Jeff Wagner. "You're not just a number here and that gives us Comm Arts majors a chance for hands-on experience." Experience is exactly what Wagner has. He began working at WVUD and WDCR, the ca mpu s radio stations, and moved on to working part time as production assistant at channel 22. Wagner also works at WQRD, a local radio station geared to the handicapped, where he is involved in "WORDS," a radio program for reading to the blind. Alpha Eplison Rho, the University's broadcasting club, is another of Wagner's claims to fame. When he took over as president of the club h is sophomore year, AERho's membership was down to six, and in serious financial troubl e. Through his hard work and d edication, the club is once again a success with 25 national members and 20 local members. According to Wagner, they key to its success is keeping in contact with the members, making sure each one is involve d in their thing .

The U niversity has changed Wiggins in many ways. Its sense of community has taught Leslie the importance of support groups. Furthermore, Wiggins has discovered that a person is not alone, and through learning from mistakes and being more assertive one can, and will, survive any situation. She went on to cite some optimistic aspects of the University as including high academic standards, and the interaction of religion in the community. Wiggins also said that the students are an important positive factor, and their accomplishments should be given more attention. "A person has to visit and get into the school," so they know " not just the surface." Miss Wiggins has worked at Wright Patterson Air Force Base for a year in several departments. Th is has given her a lot of exposure to different areas, people and professions of the "real" world .

1985's Senioritis As the spring of 1985 slowly emerges, it is obvious that the students at the University of Dayton are getting just a little bit fidgety. Why? Is it the warm weather? An impatience to be rid of classes for another year? Spring fever? The answer is "yes" to all of these questions, but it even goes further for the 1985 graduates. Not only will they be completing their courses for the year, they will be completing all the credits needed for their majors! They are ready to move on, and their highstrung behavior shows their eagerness to do so. Still, graduating seniors have many excellent memories of and close friends at the University which they hate to leave behind. It is no wonder that the Class of 1985 wants to both stride ahead into the future and linger in their past for just a moment longer. Interviews with a few seniors revealed the feelings and reflections about the University that are probably common to most of the graduating seniors, and a discussion with John Kelley of the Placement Office shed some light on where

these seniors will be going in the years ahead. In an interview, Phil Norton, the editor of Orpheus, who is pursuing a double major in Psychology and English, said that his most memorable moment was the 1984 Christmas singalong program, where he presented some poetry readings. Heather Bersch's most resplendent memory occurred when she was crowned Homecoming Queen of 1984. Other seniors, such as Paul VonMohr, the vicepresident of Student Association (SA), and Tony Mollo, 1985's Turnabout King, said that their most exciting memories were from basketball games, especially the NCAA playoffs and the victory over DePaul during the sold-out game of 1984. Some seniors also cited a few embarrassing moments. Troy Thomas, a computer systems major, feels a mixutre of amuse ment and embarrassment when he recalls streaking through the Ghetto during the NCAA tournament of 1984. Ken Doggett, a computer science major and a cheerleader, laughed as he remembered hurting his leg while cheering during a sold-out DePaul game in his sophomore year. Sandy

Pavlak, also a cheerleader and a broadcasting communications major, states "couchburning" as a novel University trend. Where will this year's fun-loving seniors be in the future, however? Undoubtedly, most of the graduates have big plans ahead. According to John Kelley, UD seniors can be confident about the upcoming years. He believes that eighty percent of June '85 graduates who are registered with the Placement Office will have secured jobs by late summer. According to Kelley, the seniors are reaching a "crossroads" in their lives. "In the past, (students) have been preparing to be productive." But in the future, graduates will have to go out and display the knowledge and skills they have acquired. At times, the large transition can be overwhelming for the seniors. Ah, hope springs eternal and it is spring now isn't it? Yes, the seniors of 1985 do indeed have spring fever . Kim Nowaki


Successful Transitions The monumental changes in the School of Engineering in 1984-85 include the first graduating masters class in the new Electro-Optics program and computer equipment installed in the labs for the first Computer Aided Design-Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAD-CAM) classes offered. According to Dean Primrose, "The University is keeping ahead of the computer transition." By giving

200/University Life

engineers and engineer technologists a core curriculum, it will teach them analytical and theoretical background to solve problems for tomorrow. Another program that has proven to be successful is the Fast Track Program. Individuals with a physics or math degree return to school for a concentrated course schedule for a year to earn a certificate in a specific engineering degree.

According to Primrose, "These type of innovative programs are proof that the School of Engineering is adapting to the fast pace of technology." Primrose explains, "What makes the engineering education here at the University of Dayton so prestigious is the dedicated, caring, and competent faculty." Heidi Zschuppe

Great Things Have Happened In

The School Of Arts And Sciences According to Dean lazarus, the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences since 1980, "We (the College of Arts and Sciences) are helping make UD's best even better." This can be seen through the many new and exciting things happening within the college, such as guest speakers, new professors, educational seminars, and much, much more. There have been many new additions to the College of Arts and Sciences. An addition which occurs regularly is the appointment of new professors and teachers to the staff. In this academic year, many new professors were hired in various departments ranging from music and math, to Criminal Justice and Computer Science. According to Dean lazarus, "great

things have been happening within the College." A grant for $2,200 has been given to the Humanities department to establish a core curriculum for students. This core curriculum program will be placed on a three year trial program. The program, called "Human Values: Roots of Pluralism and Its Contemporary Expressions," will hopefully make the students more well-rounded in many areas of study. There have been no major program changes within the College as there have been in its departments, but there has been a routine turnover of chairmen within the College. For example, Dr. Shantell will be leaving his position within the biology department; however, he will remain in the health area at the University.

Beside faculty turnovers, Dean lazarus also cited the productiveness of the faculty as being noteworthy. Specifically, lazarus pointed out that the faculty alone has published 10 books this year - a fact which Dean lazarus calls "a source of pride." In this academic year, many lectures and seminars have taken place within the college. The lectures on the USSR were very well attended and were considered a "smashing success." But more important than the seminars and lectures were the special awards which were given to teachers and students within the College. Dr. Alric, in the department of Philosophy, was one of the eight finalists in the CASE (Council of Advancement and Support of Education) National Professor search which is a big accomplishment for any professor. Another professor who deserves recognition is Dr. Wolfe, of the Communication Arts department. Wolfe received Teacher of Year Award. Students, too, have made a mark within the college this academic year. According to Dean lazarus, two notable students are Mark Smucker and Mark Palmert. Smucker is a finalist for the Fulbright Fellow Scholarship, and Palmert has been offered a NIH Graduate Fellowship at many universities and colleges, including Emory and Case Western Reserve University. Through these changes and accomplishments within the College of Arts and Sciences, it is easy to see that this college will continue to help better the education of the students within it - educationally as well as culturally.

School Of Education Ranked Tenth In Nation "This has been one of the most exciting years in the history of the School of Education," said Dr. Ellis Joseph. This year the School of Education was indicated by the National Commission on Excellence in Education as one of the nine "Notable Programs" in America. Also, the National Research Council ranked the University of Dayton's School of Education tenth in the United States regarding graduates who go on to get their Doctorate Degrees. This ranking was from 943 private liberal Arts Colleges. Dr. Thomas Lasley, a new addition to the School of Education staff, was chosen as editor of a journal compiled by teachers of education. Furthermore, the University was chosen to edit this journal through a national competition. Dr. Lasley will replace Dr. John Geiger as chairperson of Teacher Education in July. Geiger, who voluntarily stepped down, will continue to teach at the University next year. This year, the School of Education was honored with two prestigious awards. The Outstanding Teacher of the Year Award went to Dr. Eugene Moulin, while the Outstanding Scholar of the Year Award was presented to Dr. Joseph Rogus. The School of Education had many speakers come this year. One of the speakers was Ernest Boyer, who wrote High School. He is president of the Carnegie Foundation for Advancement of Teaching.

U.D. 's Distinguished Speakers The University of Dayton's Distinguished Speakers Series has been in existe nce for only three years now. During those years, the speakers have be en as varied as activist actress Jane Fonda, columnist Jack Anderson, and well-known horror story writer, .Ste phen King. The 1984-1985 series was no different; it too, offered ariety and notoriety. The speakers for each year are chosen by a University-appointed committee. This committee, consisting of administrative staff, faculty, and students, has several functions. First, they must select an issue, idea, or set of top ics that the year's speeches will be centered around. They can contact speakers who are either planning on being in the Dayton area, or who can be if asked, and arrange for them to

speak at the University on a topic related to the year's chosen issues. The 1984-85 season's issues were "Election Issues: 1984" and " Ethics in Business and Government." The third part of the series is an author who speaks to the public and at a workshop for aspiring writers. This year, the author was James Kirkwood. The keynote speaker for the election issues was women's activist Be lla Abzug, who spoke on "Womens' Effect on the Electorial Process." Chairperson of the speakers committee, Marcia Baumberger, pointed out t hat the committee gets not only individual speakers, but also film and panel discussions so as to provide variety. The elections series, for example, in -

eluded a luncheon with UN ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick and a wide screen television viewing of the presidential debate. Similarly, the ethics in b usiness and government topics included a viewin g of "Dallas" and " Dynasty," and a discussion of the eth ics containe d therein, as well as a showing of the film " All the President's Men." The keynote speaker was Ramsey Clark, form e r Attorney General, whose topic was " Ethics in Business and Government." To end the year on a high note, author James Kirkwood, of "A Chorus Li ne" fame , spoke at the Writers' Workshop. All in all, the year provided a vareity o f speakers on important and pressing topics, which both interested and involved the student body.

Art Series Brings Culture To Campus The University Arts Series tries to b ring a wide variety of arts e xperiences to the campus each year. Th is year students were able to sa mple dance, chamber music, solo m usic, poetry, and film . The Ballets Jazz de Montreal, a dance company ( o mbining traditional discipline with c路 ntemporary choreography, presented a colorful and varied program of jazz ballet on September 27. They were fo llowed by The Masterplayers, a chamber orchestra made up of some of the finest chamber players in Europe. Th e Masterplaye rs stopped in Dayton on October 14 during their American tour. Under the direction of their conductor, Richard Schumacher, they performed works by Handel, Bach, Vivaldi, and Telemann. O n November 7, the focus moved from m usic to poetry as the Arts Series hosted James Merrill. Winner of many <lwards including the National Book Critics Circle Award, Merrill

entertained and enlightened the audience with readings from his The Changing Light at Sandover. He also answered questions from the audience about the poet's craft. An extra event added during the fall term was a lecture by violin maker Edward Campbell on the art and science of making stringed instruments. The spring semester's art events opened with a piano recital by the young pianist David Buechner on February 1. Buechner's performance of works by Scarlatti, Mozart, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Bartok and Gershwin made the Chapel's rafters ring and earned him a standing ovation. On February 21, the witty, erudite Malcolm Miller presented two lectures on the art and architecture of Chartres Cathedral. Miller, who lectures daily at the cathedral during most of the year, illustrated his talks with a magnificent collection of slides.

On March 14, the Vocal Arts Ensemble of Cincinnati came to the Boll Theatre. This professionally trained choral group was accompanied by a small chamber orchestra. The group presented selections from Bach to Handel in honor of the 300th anniversaries of the birth of these composers. After the concert the audience and performers celebrated with birthday cake and punch in the Art Gallery. The final event of the season was Robert Altman's appearance on March 19. Speaking in the Ballroom he answered questions from the audience about his films, such as M*A *S*H, Brewster McCloud, California Split, and McCabe and Mrs. Miller. Since Altman makes only two college appearances a year, the Arts Series felt fortunate to be able to present him at the University. His lecture was preceded earlier in the week by the .showing of his films.

Kirkwood Keynotes Workshop From a committee formed of an unlikely hodgepodge of faculty, students, and administrators, the Seventh Annual Writers' Workshop was conceived and was to become one of the best Writers' Workshops in the University of Dayton's history. Over 200 people participated in the workshop. Participants ranged from University students to members of the Dayton community. When planning for the workshop first began, the biggest problem was deciding who the keynote speaker would be. In past years, outstanding journalists, novelists, and playwrights such as Stephen King and Sarah McClendon had keynoted the workshop. A lot of names were tossed around. Joseph Heller, Alice Walker, John Jakes, Rita Mae Brown, Jeffery Archer, and Mary Higgins Clark are but a few of the authors mentioned as possible choices. But for reasons ranging from "not available" to "too expensive" (Joseph Heller wanted over $5,000) all of these choices were dismissed.

As the deadline for a keynote speaker drew nearer, the committee decided upon James Kirkwood, award winning co-author of A Chorus Line for which he won both a Pulitzer prize and a Tony award. This musical has made its mark in history by becoming the longest-running show on Broadway. Besides being a successful playwright, Kirkwood has also written a number of successful novels. Among them are There Must Be A Pony, Good Times/Bad Times, and Some Kind of Hero, which

he later developed into a movie starring Richard Pryor. Professor Lawrence Ruff said of Kirkwood, "He is one of the more humorous authors of our time." Humorous is the right word. Kirkwood enchanted his audience the evening prior to the workshop as a speaker in the University's Distinguished Speakers Series. During his after lunch speech the next day, he was just as charming when he told the story of how he got his first

A Television Personality Most big city television personalities come and go without a fuss but talented ones are long remembered. In Dayton, a UD teacher was such a talented personality who is still remembered in the local community. Every Sunday evening in the late 1960s and early 1970s, people of all ages turned on their TV sets to watch Passport to Music as the announcer said, "with host George Zimmerman ." The camera would then focus on the energetic host. Zimmerman would wear a different costume each week with his long, bushy hair and a mustache to match. Sitting behind a piano, always bright and cheerful, he discussed the theme for that evening's show. Today, nearly 10 years after his last show, Zimmerman still fondly talks of his television days. His grey hair is now short and he wears thin wirerimmed glasses, but his bushy mustache and personal charm have remained as he talked about how Passport to Music started. "The show was part of a group of

214/University Life

community service programs at WLWD (Channel 2). At the time, in 1967, I was the vocal instructor for all the Dayton public schools and they asked me to do a 30-minute show, so I did," Zimmerman said. "They liked my first show, they asked me to do one more and I did. Then they asked me to do four more show so I did. "Finally they asked me how long I could go on and I just told them forever," Zimmerman said. Well, "forever" only lasted until 1975, but during those eight years Zimmerman and the rest of the Dayton community had a great time. "I had two responsibilities during my musical half-hour," Zimmerman said. "One, it has to be educational, and two, it had to be entertaining. Outside of that, I was on my own and had a lot of fun ." Zimmerman explained that taping the show was "most unorthodox" because he never had a script. He had things planned out, but no one else knew what those plans were.

"The cameramen always aske d me if I had a script and I just told them, 'You take care of the cameras an d I'll take care of the rest.' After a couple of years, the guys on the set told me, 'Out of all the people that come in this studio, you're the most entertaning.' So it was just as fun for them because they never kne w what I would do." "I did one show about astrotu rf to celebrate the opening of Welcome Stadium. The athletic director of t he Dayton schools came in to talk about astroturf an d it con111ected well because the theme pf the show was music on alma maters," Zimmerman said. \


Zimmerman described another show he did on music written in the form of theme and variations. These are large musical numbers made of small, variated pieces. To help the aud ience understand this concept, he had a kitchen up in the studio and baked cakes. All the cakes were the same, but they were decorated in different ways, like the music.

And A True Friend Yet, after 250 shows, "It just got to be too much," Zimmerman said. All the music, material, acts, visuals, and research he had to do for every show became a burden. "We had fun doing the show and we had a chance to be creative," Zimmerman said. "I learned from that and I've learned a lot from young folks," Zimmerman said. Much of that learning carries over to the classroom where he has been helping others for more than 35 years. "I'm always going ... doing . . . I can't sit," he said. In all the classes Zimmerman teaches, he tries to get students involved and "doing," but he does it with a twist of variety, like he did on his show. During his television years, the local media were drawn to his classroom techniques. In 1978 Zimmerman retired from teaching after 30 years in the Dayton public school system, but then he came to UD in 1980 because he could not cope with being inactive. He currently teaches four music classes and enjoys being around young people again. Zimmerman said a reporter asked him what his greatest accomplishment in life was, and Zimmerman replied, "Thousands of friends." He said the reporter just stopped, looked at him dumbfounded for a few seconds and then went on. Unfortunately, the reporter didn't know Zimmerman too well. To become a friend of George Zimmerman is truly special, and indeed, Zimmerman's most worthwhile deed . Bill Sontag (Adapted from Flyer News)

$38 Million Ensures A Finer Future For five years the University of Dayton conducted a self-study to determine its strong and weak points and to decide what its greatest needs were. Finally, in 1982, the Committee on University Goals and Priorities was formed to further consider these questions. The committee consisted not only of administrative faculty and staff, but also of students. While this committee was setting goals for the University, another committee, The Campaign for the University of Dayton, was studying ways in which funds could be obtained so that these goals could be met. The combined efforts of these groups resulted in $38 million campaign. With the slogan of "Making our best better," the campaign has five designated objectives. These objectives have been determined, and the amount of funds necessary to meet each objective has been calculated. The five objectives are to strengthen undergraduate education; to ensure access and maintain independence; to strengthen leadership in science, engineering and advanced technology; to extend the outreach of the University, and to enrich the University environment for learning.

too, contains six priorities. The campaign hopes to raise funds to provide more scholarships to undergraduates, athletes, and those in the honors program. Other monies would be used for graduate fellowships, law school loans, and student employment.

programs allowing for interaction with the Dayton business community, and to strengthen existing interdisciplinary studies such as Inter national Studies and the Marianist library. An endowment for annual research in the Catholic tradition is also sought under this objective.

Objective number three, strengthening leadership in science, engineering, and technology has only three priorities. One of these is to create new graduate programs to advance research. These programs would be in electro-optics and advanced engineering materials and processes. The other priorities include an advanced computer system, a valuable asset to the Engineering and Business Administration Programs; and a series of micro-computer networks which would open up possibilities for new graduate programs.

The fifth and final objective has only two priorities. One is to provide funding for Campus Ministry and the 17 service organizations connected to the Ministry. The other is to improve various faci lit ies on campus. This includes the renovation of St. Joseph and Zehler halls; change in areas used for recreation, competition, or physical education; and conversion and renovation of various other existing facilities.

The fourth priority, containing four objectives, is that of extending the University's outreach. This would include funding for a Center for Christian Renewal, which would provide, among other things, academic programs and consulting services. Funds also would be used to create

$38 million may seem an ambitious sum, but the organizers of the campaign believe it to be a realistic one. The University is one of the largest Catholic universities in the nation, and has a long-standing tradition of over one hundred and thirty years. Meeting these objectives will only ensure an even finer future.

The first objective, strengthening undergraduate education, consists of six different priorities. These priorities include funding for such programs as the University honors program, basic science, and general education. Also included would be endowed chairs and the expansion of the Roesch library. The second objective, and that requiring the most funds, is that of insuring access and maintaining independence. like the first, this

Making Our Best Better This year the campaign for the University of Dayton employed the theme " Making Our Best Better." Around campus, this concept became more than just a slogan. Throughout the past year, various projects have been undertaken to update and improve University facilities, all with the goal of enhancing the quality of life at the University. Any casual observer strolling through campus certainly must have noticed the steam shovels and bulldozers wreaking havoc with the campus grounds. Well, there have been two main causes for all this organized mess. The first is that the University is in the process of installing a new $3 million telecommunications system. The system, which has been purchased through Ohio Bell Communications, will be fully owned and operated by the University. It should be ready for use by the 1985 Fall term. The other construction project on

campus has been the conversion of Baujan field to a recreational sports (intramural) facility. This conversion has involved the destruction of portions of the stands and the expansion of the playing field into two lighted fields. The center stands will also be renovated to provide for spectator seating. Inside University buildings, many more improvements have been completed. For instance, the Bursar's Office has been remodeled to give it a more modern look and a more efficient layout, and various transformations have occurred within Kenn edy Union. The Torch Lounge, redecorated with new carpeting and furniture, and the Commuter Lounge, just recently moved to the Union from Liberty Hall, both sport bright new looks.

and the opening of the CAD-CAM Center in Kettering Labs. The McGinnis Center was dedicated on December 10 in the memory of Edward C. McGinnis, who died in March 1983. The McGinnis famil y has pledged $250,000 in the form of a challenge gift t o renovate the center. Major impro vements will be put off until the $250,000 required to m eet this challenge has been raised. The Computer-aided Design and Manufacturing (CAD-CAM) System Center was also established during the past year. This system represents a major technological advancement for the University, and will provid e a great learning opportunity for students and the University as a whole. It was made possib le by the donat ion of $1,404,600 wort h of equipment from Computervision Corporation. Laura Limongelli

Other revisions around campus during the past year have included the dedication of the University' s McGinnis Center at 301 Lowes Street

Our Ever-Changing World The ever-changing world in which we live is constantly challenging us as individuals and as traditional societies. Growth is change and it's a process that continues onward, never backward. The dreams and idealistic goals that many people create seem progressive, yet, too often, are clouded by a haze of reversion. By gathering the year's events, we take a few steps backward, as human nature forces us to do, but we evaluate and question those internal values and priorities that are the basis of all human needs. Throughout African countries, famine and drought has caused epidemic proportions of starvation and death. Ethiopia experienced complete helplessness through the throes of Communist regime. Many nations offered aid of food, medical supplies, and financial support. But the cries of apartheid still can be heard in South African nations.

The Mid-East countries, on the other hand, struggled to reach peaceful relations on their own, yet always amidst ever-present external forces and pressures. Iraq renewed diplomatic relations with U.S. and Egyptian-Israeli associations began warming up, especially after a successful summit meeting between Egypt's leader President Hosne Mubarak and Israel 's leader Prime Minister Shimon Peres. But many countries still hold grudges from the past, as is evident with Iran and Iraq engaging in heavy terroristic fighting that has kille d many helpless victims. Foreigners who reside in Lebanon live in constant fear o f kidnapping, abduction and death because the rise of Islamic Fundamentalism in Arab countries is bringing about danger of reversion to medieval-like existence and great intolerance to foreign ideas and views. Some countries hold much influence over the smaller and helpless nations. The Soviet Union is still exercising

strength in various countries such as Poland, Mozambique (South Africa), Nicaragua and others. Although the Soviet Union has far-reachin g power, this country has its share of inner turmoil : the economy is unstable, worker morale is low and the once strong Soviet fa mily is corrupting because of divorce and alcoholism. With the death of Konstantin Chernenko, c hanges within the Kremlin led to the appointment of Mikail Gorbachev as General Secretary of the Communist Party. His softspoken manner and slice of humor point toward a c hange in Soviet attitude. Whether Gorbachev's party can really improve relations among its people, the United States and other countries remains to be seen. This is particularly evident with the Geneva arms talks that began this year but will definitely continue through a tedious and long struggle before agreement is reached on a rms control.

Moves Us Onward Still, our nation can be just as powerful as the Soviet Union. This past year, President Reagan, upon being reelected into office, firmly established the more conservative realist attitude that is prevalent within the country. In an attempt to prevent the nation from incurring economic disaster, the administration plans to implement drastic budget cuts and to enforce them strongly. Many people now feel these intentions are stifling and inappropriate, but the administration wants to curb the overbearing dependency on governmental resources.

onward steps toward growth. Geraldine Ferraro ran as the first female vice-presidential candidate. Bernard Goetz, although he abused his right of freedom, amplified most victims' anger toward racial crime. Meanwhile, the administration took a concerned turn and appointed William Bennett as head of the Department of Education; "Mr. Divestiture" attempted to teach American youth that education is an internal value and not a societal tool found through materialistic endeavors.

Nevertheless, we as a nation forged

This world is made of many nations each with its own traditional cultures,

sociological structures, and economic and political institutions. Through these, the basic needs of family, work, security, love, and achievement are incorporated in different dimensions and magnitudes for each individual and traditional society. We are all human beings and an affinity that cannot change. Our dreams tell us, if we listen, that we can continue to grow onward and upward, and rea lize that today is what really matters. Once we do, our dreams will be fulfilled. Mary Ellen Haefner

Ascending Alterations Of Religion The University of Dayton, founded in 1850 by the Society of Mary (Marianists), a Roman Catholic teaching order, has always prided itself on its Catholic tradition with its purpose to foster principles and values consonant with Catholicism and with the living traditions of the Society of Mary. Over the years, the dynamic, ever-changing nature of religion has been reflected, to varying degrees, in the student population at the University. At times, the students have only mirrored the religious mood of this country, while at other times, they have distinctly forged their own path . Thus, the question seems to be, where do they stand now? Is religion playing an important role in the lives of most of the University's students? And, if so, is this a reflection of the role of religion in the lives of most Americans? Since the Second Vatican Council in 1962-65, the Catholic Church has undergone many structural and conceptual reforms. One of the most important of these has been the decrease in centralization of power, and the resulting expanded role of lay people. The latter has been evidenced at the University by the large number of students meeting the challenge of ministering to their peers. This has taken various forms, from serving as Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist at campus Masses, to organizing and implementing retreats given for and by students, and finally, to simply offering each other support and encouragement in Biblestudy and other faith-sharing groups.

Yet, in many ways, students at the University are not stereotypical of the Christian population in America as a whole. While churches across the nation are experiencing declines in membership and attendance at worship services, the University's Campus Ministry estimates that over 2,300 students attend Mass on Sundays, and close to 200 students attend daily Mass. Furthermore, this represents a steady level of church attendance over recent years.

Father joseph Lackner, head of Campus Ministry, notes that the high level of involvement in service clubs on campus seems to belie the "Me Generation" mentality. He is im. pressed by the dedication of numerous students to such volunteer groups as Aid to Special People, the Appalachia Club, and Helping Older People, among many other clubs and organizations. That so many have willingly given their time and talents, in return for no other reward than that of having helped another person, is in itself a credit to the University's students. Religion, by its very nature, is not a static entity. Rather, it involves a continual process of growth and transition. Inherent in this fact is a challenge to provide religious meaning and spiritual wellbeing in an era of rapid change. In the United States, this involves coping with the alienation and loneliness which seem to inevitably accompany technological complexity and dehumanization. Here, at the University, there are related challenges. Primarily, there is the challenge to continue to provide the variety and scope of religious offerings which are currently available, while expanding these offerings in areas such as ecumenical service s. Finally, there is the challenge to provide students with a strong religious foundation which will enable them to cope with the many obstacles with which the real world will undoubtedly confront them once they leave the University.

The Gala Of Social Affairs Many major social changes have affected our lives in this particular year. We have had many questions to challenge us, and we've responded in different ways. Within the University walls, students are becoming more aware of their social interactions in regards to alcohol. A campus-based program, called Alcohol Awareness, was incorporated through BACCHUS. The program objectives are informing students about the dangerous sides of alcohol and the pleasurable aspects of social drinking. Students have taken an even more concerned attitude about their physical fitness. Even though the winter weather is cold and uninviting, many students find themselves taking advantage of the PAC facilities; playing basketball or tennis, jogging around the track, swimming laps in the pool, or even keeping biceps developed on the Universal weight machines.



On the campus and even beyond our school, we were faced with changing roles of sexuality and the impact of our sexuality upon ourselves and with others. Many people have become more open and accepting of homosexual preferences, but also have become more concerned with the consequences of casual and promiscuous relationships. While a cure for AIDS disease was isolated, many people still believe the gravity of social diseases warrants careful attention to their choices. Likewise, television has depicted many instances of rape and incest. The many television series and movies have allowed us to consider the ruthlessness that many people have toward these acts of violence. Centering around the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision on legalized abortions, many people displayed their beliefs through marches, demonstrations, and especially, clinic bombings.

Music changes this year allowed us to explain our feelings and emotions in different magnitudes and depths. The gala of the Jackson's Victory Tour pointed out that we still place high importance upon entertainment and its escapes in music and movies. Other artists presented music in various thoughtprovoking manners, such as U2's "Unforgettable Fire," which deals with loss of friendships because of heroin abuse, Madonna's "like A Virgin," Bob Marley's "legend" and others. Some changes throughout the year had less positive impacts. For example, the Canadian plight of acid rain has increased in severity, now to the point that political action is necessary to alleviate potential disaster. Besides wildlife that is endangered, much of the human

population is becoming older and threatened. An alarming rate of older people are contracting Alzheimer's disease, and even worse, many of the healthier aged are left alone, cold and helpless, some in nursing homes, others in hospitals. Many of the year's social changes were very monumental. And, these upheavals and renewals will be filled with long-term obstacles that we are challenged to face and adapt to. What we've learned at this University will guide us to possibilities and directions we've never encountered. Mary Ellen Haefner

The Political Cosmos

Highlighting the 1984-85 school year was a smattering of news involving the nation. What follows is a brief capsulation.

The Republicans enjoyed a banner year as incumbent President Ronald Reagan won 59% of the popular vote and every state but Minnesota and the District of Columbia to defeat the challenger Senator Walter Mondale. Mondale, however, made history by having as his running mate New York Congresswoman Geraldine Ferraro. It marked the first time ever that a woman was included on a Presidential ticket. The Republicans took charge though as inflation, unemployment, and interest rates were down; real spending power was up; and a strong American image led to a patriotism usually reserved for crisis situations. There were several problems though. The deficit for 1984 was $175 billion and was expected to be $205 billion in 1985. The total federal deficit was over $1.4 trillion and cost $425 million a day in interest payments. The deficit was an acute problem since it threatened to raise current interest rates, which would stagnate economic growth. The Dow Jones was down 47.02 points on the year, and the foreign trade deficit was over $100 billion. Furthermore, Reagan had not conducted arms talks with the Soviet Union, although his "Star Wars" weapons system was hoped to force them into bargaining.

Internationally, it was the sixth year anniversary of the Soviet Union's "peace keeping" invasion of Afghanistan . Over 100,000 Soviet soldiers were there with no end in sight. United States efforts to secure control over Marxist Nicaragua were not only futile, but embarassing. A similiar embarrassment for the United States was its 1983 invasion of Grenada, which resulted in an American victory of soil, wh ich also soiled America's image. Meanwhile, the war between Iraq and Iran spread into the Persian Gulf, with both sides mining the waterway and attacking oil tankers of neutral nations Additionally, however, t he oil-producing nations began experiencing the glut that was suspected when the oil crisis began, and oil prices around the United States dropped to below $1 a gallon for the first time in five years. Unfortunately, several acts of terrorism stood out. Pr ime Minister Indira Ghandi of India was assassinated by Sihk members of her own guard , and the Irish Republican Army exploded a time bomb inside a hotel where Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher of England was staying. It killed four people and injured thirty, but did not harm Thatcher. A prolonged drought in Africa combined with human errors such as economic mismanagement, overpopulation, and civi l war, causing millions to starve. Over one million died in Ethiopia, Mozambique, and Chad in 1984, and it was impossible t o predict how many would die in 1985. A tragedy continued to be seen b y the fact that, though this world produces enough food to feed everyone, distribution and political problems p revent many from eating. George Orwell would not have been surprised about his 1984. His book titled 1984, wrote about government propaganda, invasion of privacy, and bureaucratic regim entat ion, but his book was not meant to be a prediction or forecast of the political situation in 1984. Instead, he wrote to question how free our thought is from control and to state to what extent we can choose what we want. In the United States we are f ree from such control , but many people in other count r ies are not. Thus, although 1984 was fiction to us, we should help free others from its reality.

Expanding To World

Challenges Sometimes it is difficult to be positive in light of what goes on in the world outside student life. As a student, one plods through courses, perhaps occasionally catching the evening news, only to be blasted by headline stories as the Soviet boycott of the Olympics, fighting in Nicaragua, build up of nuclear weapons, international terrorism, budget deficits, acid rain, industrial accidents, and cuts in educational fundings. It is no wonder one turns the set off halfway through the program. It certainly takes more effort to look a little deeper and see some of the positive growth that has gone on in 1984-1985. This year had seen slumbering spirits awakened to the voices of CONCERN. Sure, some people still sleep walk through life, numb to the news around them, but have not more and more people torn off their blinders and opened their eyes? And indeed more and more people have awakened from their deep sleep to become more oriented to their surroundings immediate and beyond. Looking beyond the United States, one heard cries for cuts in defense spending, for renewed arms negotiations with the Soviet Union, and cries against the funding of U.S. soldiers in Central America. Along with the pleas, one found people taking the initiative to become Witnesses for Peace on the Honduran/Nicaraguan border, starting the sanctuary movement to aid illegal refugees and flooding the missions with applications to do missionary work in other countries. Additionally, the University of Dayton's Plowshares group, dedicated to raising student awareness on peace issues, helped sponsor such things as Central America Week, Hunger Awareness Week, and Social justice Month in March. Many people initiated efforts to break language and cultural barriers, and to erase national boundaries. More institutions of higher learning began demanding foreign language requirements again. Peopl e were going abroad and taking advantage of educational opportunities in other countries. The University's International Students Study Abroad Program allowed students 230/University Life

to acclimate themselves with other countries in the real setting. The International Development Immersion Program, sponsored by Strategies for Responsible Development, encouraged students to become fully immersed in another culture by living with native families during the summer. The students experienced all their host family's hopes, fears, and dreams in order to strengthen international communication and awareness. The United States was becoming aware of itself as a nation of very talented and gifted people, and reasserted itself as a world-wide companion. The summer Olympics, held in Los Angeles, California, helped boost the nation's pride and accented its desire to maintain a sportsmanlike character despite political problems. Perhaps for the first time Americans could clearly differentiate b etween government and the people of a nation as most Americans felt sympathy for the Soviet athletes, who missed the competition. In an amazing show of

generosity and compassion, Americans pooled their resources to those starving in Ethiopia. All over the country, organizations and individuals from every walk of life contributed money for famine relief in Africa. National figures, such as the Kennedys, visited Ethiopia to bring more attention to Ethiopia's plight. Even stars donated monies secured by the performance of BandAid, which was a amalgamation of popular musicians. Bread for the World, University group linked to the national lobbyists, sponsored a Call to Action Day in February. Campuses nationwide took part in a writing campaign to make sure public policy goals included long-range improvements in Africa, along with the short-term, direct relief.

The University has always seen a number of service organizations that are dedicated to the well-being of others. Included in the organizations are Cystic Fibrosis, Big Brothers and Big Sisters, HOP, Saint joe's Tutoring Club, Circle K, and Hospice among others. Even Greeks became involved in service-oriented projects as noted in the increased popularity of Winterfest, which raised money for the Ronald McDonald House. Groups not only did a lot of good by helping those in need, but also established important ties with the community of Dayton. Hopefully students will look further to see how they can help influence national policy and international relations. An increase of youthful

voters was seen in the 1984 Presidential election. Hopefully, active participation by youths will continue to grow. Clearly then, there is a place for hope and a positive outlook for the graduating class of 1985. We may have to look longer and work harder, but change can happen. The Class of 1985 has special skills and talents to offer. It is truly up to us to use them in the best socially conscious way we can. We cannot stop our education once we graduate from the University of Dayton. Instead we must seek harder to find out what is going on. We have to wake up NOW and lead the way. Noel Moran

These final pages present the 1984-85 changes of yesteryear. The process for striving for goals was a challenge confronted by each individual. Although the records end here, the challenging goals are continuous through the Omega process .



This was a year of elections, of service to third-world countries, of social renewal. It was also a year of religious transcendence and reflection. The University community adapted to the world's needs as process of adaptation confronted the University so that it will reach for its Omega Point.


Each individual has strived for friendships, high academic standards, selfimprovement, and other personal goals throughout the year. He or she has touched lives of others as well as being touched. This educational process prepares us to strive higher and to encounter future paths to the Omega Point.


The individual has learned and lived here; he or she has needed to change in order to come closer to the cosmic point. As you leave this University community, your dreams and goals will happen. Your experiences and goals will begin to materialize and flourish . Your experiences and memories will bring you one step closer; this year is a minute piece of time in the process_. "The Omega Point is the furthest point of the whole cosmic process; a final point where the law of universal love will have reached its climax and 238/Ciosing its crown - Christ."
