“Mount up With Wings Southern Nazarene University Bethany, Oklahoma 73008

Mount Up! What does it mean to mount up with wings? As Dr. Cul­ bertson stated it means not burying your head in the sand like an ostrich and not having chicken vision. But, more than a n y ­ thing, mounting up with wings, means being willing to fly; being w illin g to bear the storms of life, having faith that God will be by your side — truly “ the wind beneath your wings.” Mounting up with wings was truly the essence of life at SNU this year. It was the theme of chapel and it is the them e of th is year’s Arrow. It is a fittin g theme for both, for pursuing an e du ca tion at SNU does not mean academics only, but spiritual, e m o tio n a l and mental education as well. Hopefully, by the time we graduate, w e ’ ll be able to look back and say, “ Despite all the times I fell, I kept mounting up, ready to fly again.’’ Hope­ fully, we’ll be able to say, “ I cannot go it a lone. I must have God by my side to help me fly; to help me not grow weary in the some­ times bitter strug­ gles; to not faint when we are shaded by life ’ s desperations . . . ”

Mount Up! © W hy are we here anyway? What has c o lle g e ta u g h t you? What above everything else will take with your from your time at co l­ lege? Knowledge, of c o u rs e . Job skills, a few good contacts and refer­ e nce s, g ra d e s good enough to get you in to grad school . . .

Perhaps they will be the intangible, the spiritual things. A new reason for being; a true and perfect love; an in­ valuable collection of memories; the phone number of som eone who cares for you; a new set of stan ­ d a rd s throu g h which you are able to view the world more c le a rly ; knowing where you are going emotion­ ally and spiritually. Or maybe it is fear; fear that you will never be stro ng enough to do ev­ erything in life that you can do, simply passing your life away in mediocrity, and never having mounted up with wingstoexploreall God has for you.


Mount Up! f$Looking

at myself, I will have a rather im­ pressive collection of expensive textbooks, a lot of lecture notes, and some pretty good practi­ cal experience. Hopefully, I will take with me some things much more v a lu a b le than these. Hopefully it will be a completed person who a cce p ts my diplom a. Hopefully it will be one who can make better de­ cisio n s; one who a c ­ cepts people for who they are; one who does his best to do God's will and to make the world a better place; one who does great things in­ s te a d of ju s t doing things; one who lives his dreams instead of just watching them; one who, by the power of God will rise on eagle’s wings.

Fun With Flair Togetherness is the most important part of making you who you are. It is being with the ones you love, sharing secrets, building friendships, creating exper­ iences to be remembered, doing things you’d like to forget, always giving yourself away, not knowing what you’ll get in return.

“I thank God everytime I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy . . . ” Phil. 1:3-4 And the memories will always be there tucked away in a drawer full of junk . . . buying all those expensive tickets to Heartpal, (and wondering if your date will speak to you the next week), Saturday nights at Harry Bear’s, basketball games and insanity, tearing up parking tickets, knowing that it isn’t worth it (but doing it anyway), and finally going to a school party planned by your friends. But most of all the security in knowing that there was someone there to listen, to encourage, or to tell you that you were stupid, (especially when you knew it was true), to hold your hand and look you in tear-filled eyes and say “It’s okay. I understand.” To build you up and give you wings to soar.

O ne of the m any responsibil­ ities of the V ice-President of Student Services is to pro­ duce Pow Wow. This y ear’s V.P. of S tu d e n t S ervices, Doug Woolery, chose to di­ rect is as well. Doug is a senior music m ajor from C arrollton, Texas. His individual talents in m usic and p ro d u c tio n help ed to make Pow Wow ’89 one of the best college talent shows. D o u g c h o s e th e th e m e “ V ariety ’89” for this year’s Pow Wow. He wanted a vari­ ety of a acts from vocal solo to in s tru m e n ta l, to com medy. He also included top honors in each category. T h e a d v e rtis in g fo r Pow Wow was exceptionally well. Melissa M cIntosh and Steve Van C am p designed posters and t-shirts for the p artici­ pants and workers. This was an extra cost, but went over very well, as it gave sneak p rev iew s o f a n e x c e lle n t show to come.

If a slide production is included, as one was th is year, slides m ust be taken, developed and put on music, which alone takes hours. W hen one considers all this work, D oug’s o rg an ization and dedication is obvious to us all. Pow Wow went on and off w ithout a hitch. It was an excellent display o f tale n t that was entertaining. The student boyd and ad ­ m in istra tio n show ed th e ir appreciation for the produc­ tion through all the positive com m ents th a t were made. Following our Redskin trad i­ tion, we use the phrase “ Pow W ow” to describe our talent show each year. Pow Wow in form ally means a m eeting or conference. But according to Indian tradition, a Pow Wow is a cerem ony o f a m edicine m an to cure the sick, or ef­ fect success in hunting, war, etc.

One cannot im agine all the time and work th a t goes into such a production. Program s m ust be p rin te d , try -o u ts held and judges found. T here must be someone to run the s p o tlig h t a n d so u n d a n d

It was a highly publicized event attended not only by stu ­ dents and staff, but by a d m in is tra to rs and Bethany residents also. Pow Wow was punctual, and the mood was set when the lights went out and the spotlights ap­ peared. Each act was in­ tro d u ced by d iffe re n t skits perform ed by the emcees.

International Introspection While the words of the newly elected presi­ dent, George Bush push us to strive for a kinder, gentler nation, we take a look at not only what our nation stands for, but w hat our im m ediate com m unity uses as a guide­ line for its attitu d e. W e inspect S N U , th a t which we can now call home, to see if we truly portray a vision of friendly students striving to better the lives around them . Our international students play a signifi­ cant role in our self- inspection. For you see by viewing our world through the eyes of those new to our surroundings we can truly see our weaknesses and our strong points without clouding im ages of fam iliarity. The different areas th a t our in ternational stu ­ dents come from also affect their opinions and perceptions.

From the tim e we get here as freshm en to the tim e we leave as g ra d u a te s , most of us have been in­ cluded in some way or a n ­ other in at least one of the g ro u p s lis te d on th e s e p ages.

One thing th at all of these groups have in common is service pro­ jects. W e can be proud that a C hristian ch aracter is brought through in even our leisure tim e activities. The variety gives every­ one a chance to feel like they can contribute some­ thing. Students are really busy with classwork and study­ ing, but everyone needs to take a break, and it’s good that we have the opportu­ nity to choose from over thirty-five channels of in­ volvement.

One wonders how college students have the tim e to get m arried, let alone be married! But all the same, some do and succeed at the rom antic and realis­ tic endeavor at living life not alone, but with one by your side; N ot surprisingly, most S N U students choose the sum m er to get m arried in; preferably in the m onth of June.

Clue Calamity

“ Beanie N igh t. The words certainly didn’t give much clue to what we w ould be put through . . . ” Deborah Ross

One Freshman’s Story Beanie night. The words certain­ ly didn’t give much clue to what we would be put through. We were aware that it was tradition for freshm en every year and were kind of excited that it was going to happen to us. W hat we didn’t know is what we were go­ ing to have to do and say to get our beanies. The sophomores did a good job of corralling us down to the lob­ by with the help of their spray bottles and boppers. T his is where the real resistance began. We ail were screaming “ Fresh­ men, Freshmen” over and over. Even the water bottles, boppers and spray string didn’t stop us. T h en we s ta rte d sc rea m in g “ Ninety-Three, Ninety-Three.” It took awhile but the sopho­ mores finally took control. We


were each given an irritating Groucho Marx mask and herded out to the parking lot where we formed a circle. W hat happened next is hard to describe. The sophom ores would single out freshm en to do crazy things. One had to moo like a cow, oth­ ers, including myself, had to “sizzle like bacon.” All of us had to do the crab walk. Some of us were told to make a pyramid, others were singing the S ta r Spangled Banner. The sopho­ m ores trie d to m ake us say “ sophom ores are b e a u tifu l.” Some said it but a lot refused to. Instead they would yell “ Fresh­ men, Freshmen” no m atter how much they were squirted or hit. Some of the sophomores got car­ ried away with the hitting — no doubt remembering their own beanie night! I was proud of the class of 1993!

The fun began. First we “wheel harrowed” our partners under a rope. Next — barefoot we had to walk through these tires filled with alpo mixture, liver and only the sophomores know what else! Then we had to stick our faces in a tub of kool aid and get out a noodle from the bottom with our mouths. O f course, it never oc­ curred to us that every freshman before us had most likely spit into th is pool. T h ro u g h the whole evening we had been sprayed with water. They con­ tinued it. We then had to get down on our hands and knees

and crawl through a tunnel roll­ ing out onto a m at covered with flour. So now everyone had red faces, brown feet and a flour paste all over their bodies. But we were smiling as the sopho­ mores handed us our green and white beanies. Deborah Ross

MEXICO: December 1989 D r. L oren P. G re sh a m had a vision. He had a vi­ sion th a t an u n u su a lly large num ber of people from the S N U com m uni­ ty would travel down to Mexico for a work and w itn e ss tr ip . T h e tr ip would take place during the C h ristm as holidays. M any students would not be able to attend as they were com m itted to work and stay home with their fam ilies. B ut, over 125 p eople fro m th e S N U community gave up such co m m itm e n ts to tra v e l

down to M exico and do their p art in ful­ f illin g th e G r e a t Commission of Je ­ sus C hrist.

The trip began on D ecem ­ ber 26,1989 and ended on Jan u ary 6, 1990. But, the m emories and the lessons learned will never end in the hearts of the students and faculty m em bers who went. Am ong some of the faculty m em bers and o th ­ er m em bers of the S N U c o m m u n ity w ho w e n t

perhaps the most exciting p art of the trip was the different contacts individ­ uals on the team had with the M exican people. M any lives were changed because of a simple vision th at cam e to full fruition. Perhaps m aterial things becam e less im portant to som e, as th e ir eyes re ­ flected on all the pain and poverty the M exican peo­ ple m ust live with on a daily basis.

Shaping Up! | To say that to be a Christian is not to be a competitor may be truth in the eyes of some, but they are not the eyes of SNU. True to tradition, the Redskins were win­ ners, fighters, and true champions. f | l | I

In the air or on the ground, into nets or over nets or into baskets, excellence continued throughout two more se­ mesters of afternoons and evenings, before standingroom-only crowds or in private celebrations. -|—

j “Everyone who competes in games goes into strict training. They do it to get a l crown that will not last. But we do it to get a 1 crown that will last forever . . . I beat my body and make it my slave, so after I have preached to others I will not be disqualified i for the prize.” I Cor. 9:24 Soccer, volleyball, or basketball, they were teams that wouldn’t let you down. They were not perfect, but they were not quitters. Back in high school, they used to say that our team never lost — they just ran out of time. And though sometimes the clock would melt away all too soon, there were never losers wearing red and white. For our athletes mounted up with wings.

989 was considered by some to be a rebuilding year for the Seniorless Reds- ! kin soccer te a m . That wasn’t what happened as the Redskins had a record setting season ending at the National Tournament. After three season opening wins, the SNU soccer team suffered its first of three losses in September to district rival, OCU. Two weeks after, the Redskins were given their last two losses of the season in one week. In what Coach Wes Harmon described as the “Best and worst games,” SNU dropped games to OCC and Midwestern State. Ju­ nior, Dale Richards saved the Redskins from a shut out gaining the only SNU goal in a 3-1 Eagle victory. It took an overtime before Midwestern State could gain a 1-0 edge over the Redskins, MSU being ranked num­ ber one at the time. The Redskins finished out the month 8-3. October was a “winner” of a month for the Redskins as they pushed their record to 16-3-1. After the losses to OCC and Mid­ western State, Coach Harmon predicted that SNU would win the rest of the season’s games. SNU opened up the month in that fashion with a win over John Brown. In the classic tournament however, the Redskins were handed a draw by the defense of na­ tionally ranked Fontebonne, the only op­ ponent for the Redskins in the tournament. “Vengeance is mine saith the Lord.” It was also the Redskins as they began avenging the three September losses in October. OCU was the first to go down to the Redskins after defeating them earlier in the season. Ten days after a 1-0 win over the Chiefs, SNU gained the number two po­ sition in regular season permanently after a win over OCC. The Redskins closed out the month and the season with two wins over Northeast Oklahoma State and Incar­ nate Word. Post season play began with the district tournament at OCU. SNU would have to go through two OT’s in each of its two games against OCC and OCU before gaining one point victories over both. SNU played one man short due to a red card penalty in the final half of the championship game win­ ning the game however 1-0.

GOAL KEEPER TALKS j|§ I think a lot of people counted us out in the beginning saying it was a rebuilding year. We did lose a few seniors, but I think they forgot to tell us (the team) what we were supposed to accomplish in a so called “rebuilding year”. We lost to OCU and OCC our first times out against them, but lately we’ve really been knocking the ball around really well. We “thumped” last years nat’l. champions 7-2 and I think we’re going into this year's district playoff with a really positive attitude. Kyle Robertson Sophomore Goal * Keeper

BALL inning one over Limestone and suffering a one point loss at the hands of Albion, the men returned home from Hawaii with a 13-3 re­ cord. Texas Lutheran was the first o p p o n e n t for the Redskins in the DBU Classic. SNU lost 9288. It was the Indians against the Redskins in the Classic closer as SNU took host Dallas Baptist to an overtime six point loss. SNU defeated DBU 89-83 improving their record to 14-4. The men took on Jarvis Christian on Jan. 15. In what was to be a record break­ ing evening for the Redskins, SNU broke to a 25-point lead at the half. The second ranked team in the nation payed a visit to SNU on Jan. 18. The Bison’s connected on two more points, beating the Redskins 8583. The OCU Chiefs were “Steppin’ Out” this season, but it was SNU who walked out of Frederickson Fieldhouse with the win. Catching up and leading by as much as 10 in the second half, SNU tried to keep the lead over the Chiefs. OCU took its final lead late in the game before an intentional foul against the Chiefs clinched the game for the Redskins. In the final district game of the month the Redskins took on rival OCC Eagles. SNU held the lead for most of the second half, but was finally defeated 6967.

WRESTLE MANIA restle Mania came to SNU this year in full color. The e v e n t took p lace in Broadhurst gym and a real ring m ade the set co m ­ plete. The evening was full of all the chilling and grotesque sights, as often seen in wrestling on T.V. Of course, there was also the ridiculous; managers got into arguments and pulled one anothers hair, etc. The highlight of the evening came when Eric Sanderson and Leeman Bennington wrestled it out. The loser was to lose his hair. (Both have covet­ ed long blonde hair.) The loser was Eric, but the hair that Leeman was cut­ ting wasn’t real, although the crowd did not know, and screamed with dis­ approval. The event was sponsored financially by both AMS and AWS, although AMS did most of the organizing and plan­ ning.

RAISING 2?**^ SPIRIT Cari C a rter, h ea d cheerleader and Mi­ chael Oliver, head yell leader led the Varsity Redskin C h eerin g Squad in raising Reds­ kin spirit. This year’s squad con­ sisted of 12 very talent­ ed girls and guys who

cheered the Redskin Basketball team on to many victories. During the homecom­ ing game the cheer­ leaders entertained the crowd with a drill routine. The routine is enjoyed by students and cheerleaders, as

well as other fans. The homecoming routine is the only one the cheerleaders are al­ lowed to do all year.

The Redskin Cheer/Yell leading Squads must pay for their own uniforms and they must pay for their own travel expenses to and from away games.


Incredible Involvement! Much of college life is spent being involved in various orga­ nizations and groups. This involvement breaks up the some­ times monotonous routine of college life and gives us a chance to learn, lead and interact socially with our peers, and also the opportunity to perform service for our commu­ nity. So much work goes into different activities, it is often mind boggling. There are over 40 groups on campus; Stu­ dents can find their “niche” in anything from the Campus Computer Club to the Behaviorial Science Club. Some groups select members through audition, such as Mission Crusaders and Chorale. Others consist of elected students

that represent the campus community and student body. Some clubs have large memberships like Circle K. Others, like the Spanish Club, cater to a small section of students on campus. There is even a club for all the club leaders! This club, the Interclub Council, was organized so that there could be better communication between clubs and so that planning would be more organized. New clubs are also emerging all the time. This year, three new clubs were added to the list: The Campus Computer Club, M.O.M.S., and Big Hands Helping Little Hands and the Math Club was also revived this year. In essence, group involvement teaches us all responsibility. We learn that the hardest part about getting things done is doing them. We are constantly challenged through involve­ ment to become more dependable and creative people. We are challenged to mount up with wings.

A mini-mag is just what the name implies: a miniature magazine that contains a number of features interesting to or about college students. On the following pages you will find such features as the Berlin Wall — an event that will forever mark the ending of the decade of the 80’s. You will also find fashions that will define and describe your generation throughout histo­ ry.

W hat is fashion? Some say fashion is a trend th at is created by people. O th ­ ers say th a t fash io n is y o u r ow n p e r s o n a l it y coming out through the way you dress. As we look a cro ss th e campus, our eyes catch all varities of styles. There are the outrageous dresses th at are put together with different prints, holes in the knees of je a n s and oversized tre n c h co ats. There are the sharp dress­ ers; everything they wear is coordinated with their jewelry to accent the out­ fit. But then there are also those who ju st don’t care. Both these different styles express th e p erso n ality and the feelings of the in­ dividual. In high school the word “ fashion” was the way we thought. Now all th a t is behind us. W e have devel­ oped our own selves and created our own image, just the way God m eant us to be. — Shellie H ow ard

Crumbling Down The Iron Curtain is chipped away. On A ugust 13, 1961 the wall began as barb wire strung between poles. The reason was as obvious as th e c o n s tru c tio n — to keep people in.

Academics .

A Liberal Arts Education Unfortunately, few really consider the purpose and usefulness of a liberal arts education. Academics do not ensure money for the future and a college degree doesn’t guarantee a job. What do academics offer then? Joy, wisdom, peace, a quality life — these are the intangible fruits of a liberal arts education. The liberal arts student cares not about large sums of money, being an executive, or driving a BMW. He seeks to examine himself, his society and his ances­ tors in art, literature and history. His curiosity leads him to discover imperfections and flaws in his identity and culture and searches for solutions to those problems and conditions (i.e. — social revolution, economic failure, homelessness, edu-

“Oh the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowl­ edge of God! How unsearchable his judgements, and his paths beyond tracing out!” Romans 11:33 cation). He wants to find the formulas to interpret the myster­ ies of God’s invisible universe — the molecules and atoms — and from such knowledge create medicine to improve human life. The physicist, chemist and biologist know more about a tree than its color. They know how trees grow, and realize the importance of preserving instead of destroying them to keep them yielding fruit and producing oxygen in order to sustain other life forms. In studying the physical makeup of the world, the liberal arts student has greater appreciation for nature and its usefulness to man. He thus becomes a steward of God’s creation. Ultimately, however, the person influenced by the liberal arts realizes the limitations of his own being as he explores the finiteness of man in history and literature and discovers the greatness of the Creator revealed in the intricacies and won­ ders of nature. He sees his need for a more powerful Being and finds great, unsurpassing joy in such insights. He is happy not because of his high position, wealth, or profession, but simply because God considered his valueable enough to be created and to be loved. Such great wisdom in the goal of the liberal arts.

Introducing Loren Gresham is a dynamic individual on campus who is also our president. He is originally from Nashville, Tennessee. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been with Southern Nazarene University for 23 years. He started out as a political science teacher and then became chairman of the department. He was assistant basketball coach from 1971 to 1979 and head basketball coach from 1979 to 1986. Dr. Gresham was provost from the fail of 1985 until June 30, 1989 when he became our president. This has been a busy and important year for him. He became president of our great university and also celebrated his 25 year anniversary with his wife, Linda in March, 1989. He describes his wife as a people person who knows >more students than he does because Linda has worked in Student Development for five years. Their only child, Lynette, was married on September 9, 1989, in California. There are many functions that a president must fill. He makes decisions on academic programs and allocation of resources. Our president is the leader of the campus community. As such he must be the epitome of perfection, or at least an all around good guy, which he is indeed. He works with fund-raising to help with tuition and fees. He acts as mediator between the Board of Trustees and the campus. The best part of the job is his opportunity to know people. He even finds handling problems to be a challenge, believing that they keep one growing, thinking and being creative.

Howard Culbertson, furloughed mis­ sionary from Haiti, has occupied the Garner Chair of Missions for the past two years. His responsibilities have in­ cluded teaching two missions courses each semester, one section o f Christian Thought and maintaining relations with the Missionary kids on campus. Also added to his list o f responsibilities this year is the position of college chaplain, which he says he enjoys the most o f all his responsibilities. Dr. Culbertson said of his feelings about the SNU student body, "I am overwhelmed by the strength of most students committment to Christ and to finding His will for their lives. At the

same time my heart aches a bit, for I know the awful tragedies that life will throw at them before long. So, I do alot of praying for them /’ Dr. Culbertson was the originator o f this year's chapel theme "Mount up with wings", which he took from the book of Isaiah. This theme was carried out as this year’s yearbook theme as well. Dr. Culbertson has influenced many lives while at SNU and when the time comes for him to return to the mission field, he will be very missed by one and

oncerned about the fate o f SNU? Don’t worry! Two special administrators have the future state of the university under control. Their jobs are designed to improve the future prospects of the college. I

One of these administrators is Mr. Tom Leupp. In charge of University Outreach, he works with President Gresham on stu­ dent enrollment. He visits two year col­ leges that do not offer courses that SNU has such as nursing and early childhood education. He spends some time counsel­ ing high school students and other possi­ ble college candidates. He also wishes to reach out to mainland China for desirable students. Mr. Leupp’s goal for SNU en­ rollment is to reach two thousand. More importantly, however, Mr. Leupp desires that each student, faculty and staff mem­ ber continue to grow spiritually and "seek first the kingdom of God."

Science is like a game, although many would find the word "game” offensive as it does not denote the seriousness of the world of science. Still, the word "game” is used as a metaphor because science is both challenging and exciting, governed by rules and entertaining. Games are played for many reasons: diver­ sion, amusement, competition, intellectu­ al stimulation, social interaction, chance, strategy, personal enhancement, emotion­ al gratification and curiosity. Several as­ pects of science contain many of the things on this list. Curiosity is probably the most outstand­ ing motivation scientists have. Other mo­ tivations include imposing order on cha­

os, a desire for recognition and improving the world. N o one is truly educated unless | they understand something about the ; game of science. Part of earning a college degree at SNU includes learning in this area. Students are required to take one math class, at least at the Intro to Algebra level, one biology class and one physical science. SNU offers a broad selection of courses ranging from Astronomy to Ge­ netics and provides an extraordinary staff to lead it.

The great Russian writer and philosopher Fyodor Dostoevsky wrote this to his brother in 1839- "Man is a mystery; if you spend your entire life trying to puzzle it out, then you have not wasted your time. I occupy myself with this mystery, because I want to be a man.” Like Dostoevsky, some students at SNU have a curiosity about man. Some are more con­ cerned about the history of man — the devel­ opments of civilization — and the current political, economical and cultural issues that impact him. Other students devote their study to the psyche of man and discover how

he thinks, behaves, and operates in the world. Likewise, some students study how man functions in society and the social dynamics that affect and change him. Students with these interests and who wish to work and serve the public world will find adequate training within the Bresee College of Professional and Social Studies. This col­ lege, under the direction of Dr. Forest Ladd, offers six academic majors — history, politi­ cal science, business, home economics, soci­ ology and psychology. The Bresee College prepares its students to be people servers as well as professionals in the business and so­ cial world.

hakespeare, Piaget, Saint Paul, Don Quijote . . . though each of these writ­ ers and philosophers have no relation to each other, they have been studied thor­ oughly by students within the many academic departments of the Bethany College of Min­ istries and Humanities. Bethany College, with Dr. Stephen Gunter serving as its dean, con­ sists of eight departments — English, Speech Communication, Modern Languages, Art, Music, Religion and Education.


In the humanities, students research and ex­ plore the nature and behavior of man as ex­ pressed in literature, drama, and art. In addi­ tion, the student endeavors to refine his own self-expression and to think through and clar­

ify his own thoughts before publishing them on paper or on canvas. Students in the ministries are trained to serve and develop humanity. Educators are pre­ pared to enrich, nourish, and inspire students. Prospective ministers are being taught how to research and interpret God’s word in addition to counseling and reaching out to the needs of people. Whereas the humanities inspire the great au­ thors, actors and philosophers; the ministries produce compassionate educators and evan­ gelists. All together, they create greater un­ derstanding, peace and a quality life for soci­ ety.

Than Teach

rofessors do more than teach! The only contact that students have with professors is in the classroom, or by an arranged appointment in the office, or a chance meeting on the way to another class. What do those professors do outside the classroom? Nothing? O f course not! Just ask Assistant Professor of Education, Betty Lou Thompson.


This professor is busy! Not only is she a teacher, she is also an advisor, a mother, a student, and a regular here-and-there busy­ body. If she isn’t lecturing, she is probably counseling or advising a student, which she claims occupies most of her time outside of the classroom. She has 75 counselees. That adds up to 75 registration forms to fill out and sign. She dreads the beginning of each semester as fifty education majors rush to her office wanting to drop or add a class. Routinely, she signs her initials (B.L.T.) to each slip. Sometimes, however, Prof Thompson is not available to an­ swer questions, even during regular school horus. More than likely, if she isn’t in her office, she may be in a committee meeting. She says that she spends at least 15 hours per week doing committee work. In addition to having to attend the regular faculty and departmental meetings, she and her col­ leagues are having to prepare for NCATE (North Central Ac­ crediting of Teacher Education). One of their time-consuming

responsibilities is to form and define the bibliography from which the department prepares its teachers.

On top of committee work, Prof. Thompson' must also super­ vise and observe six student teachers and three first-year teach­ ers every week. This requires additional hours away from col­ lege, traveling from one elementary school to another. She is also the director of the SNU Reading Clinic which keeps her quite busy overseeing about twenty tutors every Tuesday and Thursday until seven o ’clock in the evening. Understandably, Betty Lou wishes to remind her students that professors "don’t get paid for sitting in the office; they get paid for getting work done.” Besides being a full-time professor, Prof. Thompson is current­ ly working on her dissertation. She spends a great portion of her spare time collecting data. Part of her research entails testing Chapter One students at Bethany Elementary School. In addition to work and study, Prof. Thompson devotes much time to her family. Her husband and her children are a high priority on her list. Because her husband must spend 120 hours each week as an interning resident doctor, she feels a tremen­ dous responsibility to take time for her three children. As if three children are not enough to keep her busy, Prof.

Faculty Thompson has an extra-special responsibility this year. In Feb­ ruary, she will give birth to her fourth child. Consequently, her doctor advised her to relinquish some o f her duties —- one of which was sponsoring the Junior Class. Despite this one task off her agenda, Betty Lou Thompson still has a heavy load. Why doe she work hard? She is simply a dedicated professor committed to assisting students and get­ ting the job done. Indeed, college students are not the only ones to cope with stress. Betty Lou Thompson — professor, student, wife, and mother — can testify to that!

FAMILY. Betty Lou is kept busy at home with her husband and three children. TIME. Prof. Thompson spends approximately 15 hours a week doing committee work.

ADVISOR. Each semester Prof. Thompson advises 75 students. She manages to find the time to give individual attention to each.

o books! No articles! The liI brary doesn’t seem to have anything I need for my re­ search paper!” This is a common com­ plaint among many SNU students who claim the library has a lack of necessary resources. Does this mean that R.T. Wil­ liams Learning Resources Center is a bad library?


Mrs. Bea Flinner, the SNU reference li­ brarian, hardly thinks so. During her gra­ duate study at OU, Mrs. Flinner recalls coming back to R.T. Williams to find some of the resources she needed. Al­ though OU may have a plethora of books and magazines, the problem is knowing how to locate these materials. Mrs. Flinner claims that the library reference workers were not always very helpful. If you ask them where some materials are, they may point in a particular direction and say "It’s over there.”

paper articles classified according to subject matter with up-to-date information and cur­ rent issues. Another helpful convenience of the library is the Media Center which pro­ vides a variety of audio-visual materials and equipment. It has computers, a copier, a lami­ nating machine or anything students need to make posters, transparencies and slides. One of the most valuable asset to the SNU library, however, is the helpful, friendly service of Bea Flinner. She knows where every book, magazine, or document is in the library. If a student needs some materials, she can find them, and quickly, too! Mrs. Flinner says that she thoroughly enjoys working with stu­ dents. "I thrive on it!” she claims. Her dedica­ tion, know-how, and genuine interest in her work and students is a rare service one cannot find at just any library — except SNU of course!

Mrs. Flinner believes that many students at SNU misjudge the campus library. She says that students are unable to locate ade­ quate materials because they do not have sufficient knowledge of how to use the library. The material is out there, but the students must simply know where to look for it. Unfortunately, students do over­ look the positive qualities of the R.T. Wil­ liams Learning Resources Center.

Current Events


A Reflection of the 80’s Current Events — the stuff the six o’clock new is made of. In this special section we review the decade of the 80’s. The decade in which we entered our teenage years — the decade from which we emerged as adults. Despite tormenting trage­ dies, the 80’s was our Camelot. It was the decade of straight legged jeans, Ronald Reagan and frozen yogurt. It was ten years packed full of Michael Jackson hits, Madonna “wanna he’s” and Springsteen’s spangled rebellion. As Christians, we mounted up with wings, despite rampant

“Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Romans 12:2 drug abuse and alcoholism. We waited upon the Lord, as our families were broken by divorce, neglect and abuse — He renewed our strength. Despite the crippling menaces of soci­ ety, we ran and we did not grow weary in the fight to better our world. Though our hearts collapsed for the hopeless, helpless, and homeless, still we walked and did not faint. Events of the last ten years reflect the desperate need for Jesus Christ in our world. On the streets of Amsterdam, syringes are sold and bought like candy. In Lebanon, twelveyear old boys carry machine guns. And in our very own America, drugs have entered our elementary schools. We are called to be radically saved. To love the people in our world and not condemn them. We are commanded to not store up treasures on earth, but to use our resources that God gave us to bring to our world the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Current Events — the stuff the six o’clock news is made of. We turn on the T.V. to view a world of hurting people; a world so savaged by selfishness and greed . . . And yet, we awn Scott,

Frozen Yogurt, Iran-Contra, Springsteen must not become pessimists or cynics. We must see, still the beauty in life and soar like eagles. We must mount up with wings.

Homecoming, Heart-Pal, Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;;

Honorable Mentions When one thinks of honors, the picture that most often comes to mind is a homecoming queen. While this is a great honor bestowed on one senior girl each year at S.N.U. many other students are honored through out the year. These include students chosen for Who’s Who, Outstanding Freshman, Heart Pal Court, and Servant Awards, etc. Who’s Who is an honor bestowed upon students who have shown leadership, extra-curricular activity, academic achievement (at least a 2.75 cumulative g.p.a.) community

“Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.” Proverbs 24:14 service, and future potential. Students are nominated for application through the Dean’s office and then a selection committee is formed of sudents and professors and final selection is made. Nineteen S.N.U. students were selected, joining an elite group of students from over 1,400 institu­ tions of higher learning in all 50 states, the District of Co­ lumbia and several foreign nations. The Outstanding Freshman award is an honor selected freshman receive, who have shown academic achievement, leadership skills, etc. They are chosen by the faculty.

jf ■

Another new honor this year is that of Homecoming King. Candidates and the king are selected in the same way the Homecoming and Heart Pal Courts have been traditionally chosen. Each one of the persons in this section have aimed to be the very best — to achieve certain goals and maintain a particu­ lar standard of conduct and living. Each one reflects this

rho, Servant Awards, Outstanding Freshman year’s ARROW theme, as each one has mounted up with wings.

Michelle Farley and Deborah Ross

Mounting Up! From the time we are crowned with our beanies to the time the mortar board is in place we are constantly growing. We came full of great expectations and excitement. We came with high ideals. We came in ignorance — not knowing about the struggles we could endure — struggles deeper than writing a difficult paper. We struggled within our­ selves, wondering who we really were and what God really wanted. While we wanted so desperately to mount up with wings, sometimes we buried ourselves in nests of indecision and frustration. Still we learned to wait upon the Lord. Like

“Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.” Isaiah 40:31 the Prophet Habakkuk wrote: “The vision awaits the ap­ pointed time. If it seems slow do not despair. Just be patient. It will surely come to pass. It will not be overdue a single day.” (2:3, LIV) This verse became our motto and as we waited on the Lord our strenth was renewed. We became different people — tougher, more able to endure the some­ times heavy blows. We became sensitive, more able to com­ fort others. We became so much more than what we were and yet learned to see how much more we could be. We mounted up with wings — saying that we were ready — ready to soar no matter what — ready to fly off the ridges and cliffs of security knowing wecould no longer catch ourselves — we were in God’s hands.

miors, Juniors, Sophomores, Freshman

Ready To Fly

ounting up with wings was a choice the class of '90 made several years ago. Sink or swim, live or die, fall or fly, they made the step and all the effort can be applauded.

SNU graduates a class of students every year, but that doesn't mean each class is not unique. The class of '90 is very unique in character, talent and intelli­ gence. This culturally-oriented class will produce some very fine doctors, lawyers, musicians, teachers, etc. and our world will be better for their Christiar influence on the job front.

We trust that you have captured a glimpse of your dream while you have attended SNU, and that the months and years to come will be filled with contentment with what you have, resolve to give what you have, and above all, double orders of Curly-Q fries.

good g ra d e s or h o nors with us — we will take o ur frie n d s w ith us — their spirits tucked neatly in our hearts. For it is they who have helped us to m ount up with wings most of all.

would not have been a 90 A rro w . It is im p o rta n t th a t the S N U com m unity recognize their excellent work and dedication. I ap­ preciate them very m uch and w ant them to know I would have never m ade it w ithout th e ir w ork and m ost of all frie n d sh ip . Also, D ebbie Ross and Jo­ an n a R osfeld did m ore

than their share of work and I thank them very much, as well as every sta ff m em ber, for th e ir ideas, support and for all the little things they did th at piled up to be several big things th a t lessened my load. T hanks alot you guys!
