traditional president's welcome, when we all got to stand in a circle on the mall, and light candles. This ceremony signified the beginning of our journey through college. I thought this was cool. It helped us feel a part of the school's heritage. W hat I thought was even more amazing was the fact that no one caught their hair on fire, with over 300 people holding candles, this was quite a feat. After Sunday's farewell to our parents, we were put to work. That night we got to play all these wild and crazy "bonding" games. Other than the fact that I almost got killed in some of these games, I had a lot of fun. The next day most of us received a jolting wake-up call from our student mentors. After a busy day of campus tours, seminars and other activities, we were treated to a

cookout at W ild's Fish Farm. That night I was expecting a break so I could sleep late, b then I saw the schedule for t rest of the week. Tuesday was another full day of seminars. No offense the speakers, but I was dead. Hey, I was so tired that I would have fallen asleep evei if Madonna had given a speech. That night the Alum: Association gave us a great "Southern Supper " The seminars continued or Wednesday, with registration too. I don't know about anyone else, but I ju st loved standing in line for hours. O course, I've been told that th< current registration process was a lot smoother than in years past. Even if it was tiring, NSI was fun. Now, I can be a mentor and torture next year freshmen.

by Darren Currin It was something that all freshmen heard about upon arriving at school. It was something that all sophomores anticipated. It was something that humbled most freshmen. What was it? It was the Great Beanie Hunt during Welcome Week '91. The beanie hunt was just one of the many activities that the sophomores sponsored to help welcome freshmen. The sophomores' theme for the week was "The Hunt for the Red Beanie." The hunt began with a trip to Quail Springs Mall where the freshmen searched for their beanies among the hidden sophomores. "I really enjoyed it, and it helped to set the atmosphere for the week," said Donnie Ryan, freshman.

T

WE DIDN’T GIVE OUT ANY

W ith their beanies intact, the freshmen were thrown an underwater party by the sophomores. During the festivities, Brad Townley, sophomore class president was "kidnapped by Soviets" who claimed he was unfit for the presidency The freshmen were given clues as to Brad's location. They searched for the president within a five mile radius of the campus. Brad was finally found early Tuesday morning by Mark W hitley, freshman. He said, "Tell Brad that next time he wants to hide someplace, to come to me for advice." The week's other activities included an ice cream social on the Bud Robinson lawn, beanie checks, a pizza party at Crystal's and the Sophomore Follies.

POWDER PUFF TOUGHS rT OUT AT FOOTBALL STADIUM

by Lori Hamilton Powder Puff '91. A time where the girls had a chance to break out of those sweet, innocent personalities and show just how mean and dirty they could be. The girls spent many long hours in practice, working hard so that their team would be known as the best. "Practice was rough, but the freshmen were pumped and we had a lot of fun learning what it takes to play the game of football," said M issy Rudd, freshman. It was the upperclassmen that proved they had what it took to be the best. In the first half of the game, the upperclassmen made two touchdowns with a two point conversion making the score 16-0. W ith much determination, the freshmen came back in the second half

and scored. In the final minutes of the game, the upperclassmen scored again thus defeating the freshmen 23-6. AMS President W eylin Windom arranged to have the game held in a the football stadium at Central Jr High. "Having the Powder Puff game in a real stadium made it feel like a real football game," said Dana Fugett, senior Trent May, sophomore, was one of the freshmen coaches. "Last year I was a referee and was not as involved, but this year I got to know a lot of the new freshmen as well as coach. It was a lot of fun." Upperclass coach Greg Hall, junior, said, "T h is was my second year as coach and I really enjoyed it. The girls worked hard and showed a great sense of enthusiasm. I am very proud of them ."

by Lori Hamilton Following Powder Puff was the first annual Mr University contest. Associ­ ated W o m en S tu d en ts Council decided to find six worthy men and let them compete in a new pageant style competition called Mr University formerly known as “Campus Clod." The pageant was held in Broadhurst Gymnasium. “Last year I felt that ev­ eryone froze by having it outside, so we changed it and kept everyone w arm ," said Michelle Banz, junior, AWS President. Candidates were Eddie Keefer and Chris Hodges, freshmen, DJ Hochstetler, sophomore, Scott Regester, junior, and Brian VanN orman, senior The candi­ dates were judged based on evening wear, swimwear, talent and interview. While the student body cast their votes, Lindy Jett, senior entertained the au­ dience with her W hitney Houston lip sync act, I Get So Emotional. Two time Campus Clod candidate Brian VanNorman was crowned the first Mr University. “After three years it was an honor to be crowned the first Mr. University “ said Van Norman. VanNorm an entertained the audience with the song You Light Up M y Life.

Kendra Thomson „ast summer, two groups re invited to visit the Soviet ion. The first group joined th students from other zarene colleges to spend two eks passing out Bibles and ivering medical supplies. T h e Russian people were aid of nothing as far as rituality goes. It was mbling for us to see how on ? for God they were. I wed to myself that I would ^er again take a job or do /thing that people would t know I was Christian," d Blaine Versaw, senior rhe "To Russia W ith Love" p was led by Norm oemaker, Vice President of iritual Development at Point ma Nazarene College. Ten 1U students and two faculty ‘mbers were part of the ssion trip, rhey joined with proximately 33 other izarene college students and ;tributed nearly 95,000 bles, delivered medical pplies and held evangelistic lies in four Soviet cities: yansk, Kursk, Klintsy and el. Chris Branstetter said, Vhen I went I said, 'God, I'll

be a missionary if it is Your will, but please don't let it be.' After going to Russia I realized that God did not want me to be a missionary He just wanted me to surrender to His will for my life." Another group of students surrendered their August to God. The women's basketball team was invited to play in a tournament. The Lady Redskins were awarded first place. In between games, they were able to pass out Bibles and approximately 5,000 tracts and testimonials to the Russian people. Ashae Palmer, freshman, said, "A Russian man that we called 'Snake' who had been hanging around us for awhile came up and asked me what we were doing. W ith the help of a Russian interpreter, he prayed and accepted Christ right there. I was very surprised how open the people were to the gospel of Jesus C hrist." Shortly before the girls came home, a political coup took place. As the walls came down politically and spiritually, the Russian people proved to be hungry for the World of God.

by Stephania Langford Ever wonder why ALL of the parking lots are completely full each morning? Or why the Courtyard Cafe was almost always busy during the chapel hour? It may have had something to do with the 500 commuter students who came to the campus to attend classes. Grissel Guzman, junior, lived with her family in Bethany "I don't have to miss my parents like other students do," she said, "I always have them there." Guzman was usually able to walk to campus when a ride could not be arranged. Even though she lived off campus, she still felt that she was very involved in campus life. Some commuter students were married and some even had children. Marilyn Maddox, a senior transfer student from Oklahoma State University, carried a full-tim e load of 14 hours and only lived 10 minutes from campus. Maddox said it was not inconvenient for her to live away from campus. Many students moved off-

campus once they turned 23, the age at which students were no longer required to live on campus. Tim Stevenson, junior, and Steve Livingston, junior, were sharing an apartment this year after living on campus in previous years. "I enjoy the privacy and being able to go to bed when I want to. The only thing I don't like about living off campus is eating my own cooking," says Stevenson. He added that he would much rather eat in the Courtyard Cafe. Steve Livingston, however, would rather live in the dorms. "It's just too inconvenient to live off campus," Livingston said, "It isn't as easy to go back to bed when I get out of class when I'm not on campus." Whether a student likes it or not, living off campus while going to school was certainly a different experience. It was difficult at times to juggle a job, classes, time in the library and living at home. But there are many students on the campus who were able to do it and enjoy it.

This common sense was seen

among students. "I recycle newspapers and aluminum cans every chance I get. Sometimes you can't always recycle. I recycle because everyone needs to do their part and I can't ask anyone to do something that I don't do m yself," said Barry Schmelzenbach, freshman. Books such as "50 Simple Things You Can Do to Save the Earth" provided information and ideas for preserving natural resources. Through several campus organizations, students were able to tangibly affect the world.

Members of Mortar Board Honor Society placed boxes i campus buildings to collect paper and the Science Counc collected aluminum cans for recycling. "T h e hardest part about becoming environmentally aware is that if it doesn't aff< us, it will affect our children and our children's children," said Steven Reeves, freshmar Looking at the longterm effects, students changed a fe habits to help future inhabitants have a planet the could live with.

"I think the best speaker we had all year was Rev Hal Perkins from Lake View Park, because he reminded us that we can be like C hrist," said Darilyn Rhoades, sophomore. There were several special emphasis weeks scheduled throughout the year Rick Powers spoke during Opening Convention. There was also Compassionate M inistries week and M issions week.

were heard. Students thanked God for His mighty acts around the world. K. P Yohannan, founder of Gospel For Asia, spoke during Wednesday's chapel. His message challenged many students to evaluate their priorities and seek God's will. In 1991 there were still 3000 groups of people that did not have a Bible in their language, while another English version was published in America. Dave Linton, representative from W ycliff Bible Translators, spent time with students on Thursday explaining their work. Opportunities to turn

knowledge into action were offered Friday during the M ission Mall. Students were able to speak with representatives from several missions organizations. The week closed with a cheap date night in the Basement. Students watched the Jesus Film, a movie that was translated into over 100 languages and brought thousands of people to Christ M issions week, sponsored by World Christian Fellowshi enabled students to learn abo the world, and told them how they could be involved in fulfilling the Great Commission.

by Kathy Tindall and Daren Hayes Early Childhood Education majors had hands-on experience in developing their teaching skills. The Jernigan School for Children introduced them to many types of teaching and provided them with career skills. The school was established 19 years ago and originally offered only preschool classes. Fully accredited, the program later expanded to include classes through the sixth grade. This expansion gave more student teachers opportunities to experience the other side of the classroom. "I teach pre-kindergarten and I really think that I've come a lot farther from when I started out. The School for Children helps me prepare to teach with two years of experience behind me/' said

Deanna Cochran, graduate student. W ith a low student/teacher ratio, the elementary students received more attention. At tl same time, student teachers were able to learn team teaching and try different toe for presenting new concepts the children. M ost student teachers felt that their experiences at the School for Children would help them in the future. "I think that the School foi Children will prepare me for the future. Not only is the program beneficial to the graduate students, the prograi also helps the children who come to school here. I feel we have more to offer since then are more teachers. We catch more of the problems that children may have," said Jennifer Craven, graduate student.

DIPLOMAS NO GUARANTEE

by Marcia Feisal Nightly newscasts focused on the rising number of unemployed and President Bush's plan to add 13 weeks of pay to those already on the unemployment line. The news for graduates was not positive. Many members of the class of '92 wondered not about what job they would have after graduation, but if they would have a job at all. After working for four years to earn the piece of paper that would grant them entry into the real world, many graduates found that the precious sheepskin meant less in 1992 than it did in the past. Even though the news was disheartening, students still sent out resumes and filled out dozens of applications. Lonny Villers planned to teach except that he wants to move to the Portland, Oregon area. "I'm going to teach high school history, European or United States and possibly coach football," he said. Newly-wed Tiffani Liebman Patrick felt God was leading

her toward a career that would benefit others. "R ight after graduation I'm going to Arizona to be in M ario M annies' wedding and then I'd like to get a job working to help improve situations for others like at the American Cancer Society And, I'll be a wife," she said. A fellow senior, Christine Longley, mass communication/ journalism major, would be married the Saturday preceding commencement. She and her future husband, Steve, were open about a location. "I'd like to do in-house publications for a corporation," said the former Echo editor Seeing the world was another possibility for graduates. Darla Strickland said she wanted to be a flight attendant. "I've mailed out my applications and hopefully I'll get an interview and go to six weeks of flight school. If that doesn't work out, I'll get a master's in marketing at the University of H ouston," she said.

PERFECT

by Christine A. Longley Tea flowed freely as two students directed this year's one act plays on November 22 in Herrick Auditorium. Lindy Jett, senior, took charge of the cast of "A ny Body for Tea," and Steve Harrison, senior, directed "Hooray for Adam Spelvin. He is Perfect." Adam Spelvin, (Todd Sandel, junior) and his family took the stage first. Spelvin's parents, (Joel Stolk, freshman and Tammy Rasch, freshman) had invited a "nice young lady," Florence Craddock (Melissa Coolier, junior), and her mother (Becky Peterson, sophomore) over for tea so that their son Adam might fall for Florence. Instead Adam prefers his constant companion, Fat Phyllis (Melissa Snodgrass, sophomore). "P erfect" Adam goes to all lengths to prove to his parents that he is not perfect. He says he will marry Fat Phyllis, dances on a National Geographic in his underclothes and throws his shoes at Mrs. Craddock before running outside to pull some more stunts. In spite of it all, his parents still say he is perfect.

After a brief interm ission, the cast of "A ny Body for T came onto Herrick's stage. S old ladies, (Vicki Folsom, junior, Krista Olmstead, Car W indom, Karyn Jayne, Ang< James, freshmen and Jan Jos sophomore fall in love with young detective from the homicide division and plot t bring him to their home wh still being "proper " Little does Dennis O'Finn (Israel Aviles, freshman) knc what he will be involved wit when he answers a call to investigate the murder of on of the old ladies. He eventua learns who the murderer is with the help of Kramer (Bri Van Norman, senior). Preparation for the plays was eventful. "T h e hardest p about directing a play," said Jett, "was making sure everyone in the cast was at every rehearsal." Jett feared that she would have to fill in for Folsom wl was restricted to bed for several weeks with pneumon but Folsom recovered. "I thought the play went really well. I was really prou of my cast. I thought they d a great jo b ," said Jett.

by Darren Currin The morning classes had been vigorous. W hen noon hit you were ready to wind down, grab a bite of lunch, and check on that valuable possession known as mail. However, when you open your box hoping to find that letter from home, you instead find out that the dreaded time has come all too quickly again. Tim e to pay the school bill. How to finance college was a factor that all students considered before beginning their education. W hile there were those who were blessed with some sort of scholarship, others struggled by working one or even two jobs to help pay the school bill. Some students even had to rely on their faith in God to provide the finances. Students who did have scholarships were forced to work for them. M any were required to keep at least a 3.5 or even a perfect 4.0 to keep

their scholarship. That only proved that there was no sucf thing as a 'Tree ride" any more. Those who had to obtain a job found unique ways of working. Instead of the basic fast food job, students could : found driving buses, carrying packages for UPS, or even working as a waiter at one of the nicer restaurants in the area. The main goal in acquiring a job appeared to b( finding something that was unique and fun to do. Those who were not able to obtain either a scholarship or job were left with only their faith that God would provide for them. Even students who felt that it was literally impossible to obtain the money always were taken care of with a little help from the school at times. College tuition was not eas> for all to pay, but it was an investment that provided benefits that lasted a lifetime.

San Diego '91 trained idents in the art of ministry their own particular career r six days students attended nferences and seminars. ►pics ranged from prayer and ner growth to ministry in ssions or careers. "W e all were so open. We all inted to learn and that made difference," said Julie intwell, sophomore. In the afternoons, students ended either workshops or ?nt to a local nursing home, e inner city, and the phanage in Tijuana, Mexico. "Even though you hear out all these needs, it was it into perspective and I uld see it for myself on the ner city excursion. It taught 5 that there is so much need lere I'm at. I don't have to

go overseas to m inister," said Mercy Eyadiel, junior "T h e thing that made the most impact on my life was the commitment I made to God to have daily devotions," said Kristen Rice, sophomore. "You gain support from other people that are going through the same things you are," said Scott Riggins, sophomore. Meanwhile, across the border, "Com m ission Unto M exico" was in full swing. More than 260 people ministered in Valles, Mexico. The group was divided into four smaller groups and sent to different locations. Team members worked in Valles as well as Indian villages Xochititla, Nexcuayo, and Macuillocatyl. Construction and child evangelism teams were present at each worksite. In addition to those, a medical team accompanied the team at Nexcuayo.

Student nurses, R N 's, two American doctors, two Mexican doctors and a Mexican dentist attended small illnesses that ranged from headaches to extracting teeth. They even gave out a few pairs of shoes. "I wanted to go before, but the medical team gave me a good excuse, because I could help by doing what I do best — nursing," said Joanna Herod Shigley, senior The whole group gathered at the church at Nexcuayo on New Year's Day for a special celebration service. Afterwards, villagers served everyone with native cuisine that they had saved up for an entire year "I was touched by the people and their generosity We went to give, but they gave to us more," said Danna Reynolds, junior Both trips called upon students to make sacrifices to get some basic training.

This surpasses the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Pushed by 25 mph winds across brush that had been dried by five years of drought, the October 1991 blaze destroyed more than 1,800 houses and 900 apartments, city officials said. At least 19 people were killed, 148 injured and 5,000 evacuated, according to sheriff's Sgt. Robert Jarrett. President Bush declared the fire site a major disaster area, opening the door to federal aid for the rebuilding. The wooded area, with its postcard views of San Francisco Bay, was a disaster waiting to happen because of the drought, officials said.

Schwarzkoph, General Colin Powell and Defense Secretary Dick Cheny were the grand marshals of the New York pa­ rade, with over 600,000 people turning out to welcome the soldiers home. More than 1 million people attended a wel­ come home parade May 19 in Holly­ wood, and an estimated 800,000 turned out for the parade in W ashington.

^ELL FIRES. Firefighters were unprered for the sight they were met with in jwait - scores of oil wells sending Limes of red and orange flames 30 rds into the air. Oil lakes and soot ackened the sand. During the seven-month Iraqi occupan of Kuwait, more than 730 oil wells

were damaged or set ablaze. Firefighting crews were able to extinguish 584 wells since the effort began in March 1991. Teams from the United States, Can­ ada, China, Iran, Kuwait, Hungary and France were all working together to clean up the environmental disaster.

STILL SINGING. On August 15, 1991, Paul Simon and a 17-piece band drawn from five nations stepped on stage in Central Park for a free concert lasting almost three hours. The concert was a retrospective of Simon's career, from the simple beginnings of low-budget doo-wap of the '50s in Queens, N Y to the pulsating South African sounds and rhythms of his 1986 ''Graceland'' album and the Afro-Brazilian drumming and Antonio Carlos Jobim chord chemistry of his latest, ''The Rhythm of the Saints." The Central Park concert was attended by over 500,000 fans. PER SO N A L TEARS. On September 14, 1991, Carolyn Suzanne Sapp from Honolulu, Hawaii, shed tears of joy as she was crowned Miss America. W ithin days, however, her experience of physical abuse became public knowledge. In 1990, Sapp sought a restraining order against her then-boyfriend, professional football player Nuu Faaola, for alleged physical violence. Both Sapp and Faaola were disappointed that their previous problems had been publicized. Sapp stated, "That incident was personal then and it remains personal now."

G O O D B YE MAGIC. Magic (Earvin) Johnson, whose beaming smile and sparkling play entertained basketball fans for more than a decade, announced on November 7 1991, that he had tested positive for the AIDS virus and was retiring. "I plan on going on, living for a long

S O CLOSE. After all the twists, turns and tension, the closest of World Series ended in the closest of games. The Minnesota Twins and Jack Morris squeezed past the Atlanta Braves 1-0 on pinch-hitter Gene Larkin's single in the bottom of the 10th inning on October 27 1991, to win Game 7 and end baseball's most dramatic odyssey. Never before had three Series games

gone into extra innings, and the Braves and Twins saved the best for last, matching zero for zero, pressure pitch for pitch, even turning back basesloaded threats in the same inning. "Someone had to go home a loser, but there's no loser in my mind," Morris said. "Those are two of the greatest teams. I just didn't want to quit. Somehow, we found a way to win this thing."

A FT E R M A T H . About 2 million Iraqi Kurds and other minorities fled north in April 1991 when Kurdish rebels in the north and Shiite Muslim rebels in the south failed to oust President Saddam Hussein in the aftermath of the Persian Gulf W ar. At least 6,700 of the Iraqi refugees died fleeing to the Turkish border. M ilitary units from the U.S. and at least seven other countries participated in a relief effort along with civilian agencies from about 20 countries. "There were U.S. soldiers, Dutch nurses and Red cross workers working side by side. There was very little friction," Dr. Michael J Toole of the CDC's International Health Program Office said. "It really was an unprecedented effort."

’he class of 1992 saw its college lays come to a close with a girl's lumber party, the GRE, a final light in the dorms, resumes, and ons of memories.

Filling the dorm clear to the fifth floor, the freshman class brought in 283 new faces. Overall enroll­ ment was up by 99 students from the 1990-91 academic year.

They sponsored clubs, organized parties, ate in Marriott, took tests, paid bills, and called home. Oh, yea, these faculty, staff, and ad­ ministrators worked here, too.

dorms the words, "turn it down," seemed to drift through the walls. "W hy should quiet always win? Can I not be allowed to turn my stereo up for three minutes while my favorite song is on ?" stated Dana Fugett, senior "The right to a favorite song is one thing, but the right of loud music which infringes upon the right of someone else's quiet is quite another," said Gretta Gates,

junior When opposing sides came head to head, no white flags were raised.

"Why should quiet always win?" - Dana Fugett, senior

Strategies from both sides ranged from polite requests to fullfledged battles. Even

with the help of mediating RA's, the were no compromist reached. "It is hard to mediate without tak sides," said Snowbai RA Chad Dodds, sophomore. As the year progressed on, both sides realized that tf battle would rage or forever So catch ne> year's exciting seque "Stereo Wars II. Ret of the Jam Box."

Celebration Station was a family fun park with such fun-filled attractions as go-carts, bumper boats, miniature golf, batting cages and video games. "I loved Celebration Station.

O per a tio n H o m e by Glenna Jones Almost a year and a half ago "Operation Desert Storm " was in effect. Students really did not feel the full impact of the war until it affected two students here on campus. "It was a time for me to change. I was shy and withdrawn here at school, but being over there made me more out going," said Charles Atkinson, sophomore, who was called to active duty in Saudi Arabia. "W hile I was over there, I realized the value of things like

friendships, people, and Christian faith. I've also learned not to take things for granted," said Jeff Bowman, sophomore. During the war, America experienced a time of great pride in

P la c e O f My Ow f by Kendra Thomson Almost every student that has lived on campus has had a roommate. Even without that experience one can understand potential advantages and disadvantages that arise. Many students chose to have private rooms during their junior and/or senior year "I like having a private room because I can be up at any hour without worrying about bothering my roommate/' said Tommy Isom, senior "I also enjoy being able to pick my nose without anyone watching." There were benefits in having a private room. There was twice the space without a

roommate. Another advantage was that you could have guests over without having to okay it. W hile it was agreed that having a private room had many

"Hewing a private roomgives me more space, more privacy and uninterrupted sleep" -Benjamin Miles, junior advantages, there were also many disadvantages. "Sometim es I miss the companionship offered by a roommate," said Kari Fisher, senior "I also miss being able to come in at any hour of the night and have someone there to talk

to." Because of the requirement to live o campus until age 23, until married or unle living with relatives, most students experienced these anc other disadvantages and advantages. A more specific requirement states th a student cannot hav< a private room until his or her junior or senior year unless otherwise arranged. These requirements work to ensure that students are able to associate with other students from the beginning of their college career After having this chance, a student ma] choose to have a private room for any number of reasons.

much time with their children as they would like. Tollya Stroud, a senior participating in the program was matched with 12 year old Beth M iller She gave Beth friendship, allowing her to open up and talk about everything from family situations to boyfriends. Like Tollya, students provided companionship for kids in the program and gave them a role model who as Tollya said, "didn't have to discipline them ."

People No Better Place On Earth

by David White Every day students complain about rules and procedures. In 1985, Melanie Kyzer decided to do something about all the complaints. She started the program called Gratitude and Grievance which is an outlet for students' opinions on school related subjects. Since then, Gratitude id C, r i p v p n r p ha<;

made a big impact on the school. If it wasn't for the Gratitude and Grievance program, there would be no Fall Break. At one time, shorts were not allowed on campus at all. Because of Gratitude and Grievance, shorts can now be worn after 5 pm. in . In every dorm lobby

write down an expression of gratitude to the school, or a student could write about a complaint, or grievance. Forums, or meetings were held where students could talk face to face with members of the administration. "T h is is an opportunity for students to express their feelings about the r a m n i K n c a i rl D a n i ' p l

Mobley, SGA Vice President of Student Services. "It does mat a difference." The Gratitude and Grievance program occurs only once a semester, with one Gratitude forum and one Grievance forum. At the forums, members of the administration answer questions from the students.

Polling D own T he R oad Every day of the nod year thousands elementary, junior d senior high idents are delivered fely to their schools * a fleet of bus ivers that is made up mostly college idents. For more than 15 ars, SNU students ve provided insportation and isitive role models for itnam City School adents. Over 70 rcent of the 134 PC is drivers are from sfU "I provide discipline, ructure and iendship for my lers. Most of them

are from single-parent homes or are underprivleged. Many have moved around a lot and because of that

'7 provide discipline, structure and friendshipfor my students."-Jennifer Gibler, senior

are emotionally handicapped or slowlearners," said Jennifer Gibler, senior, a bus monitor The pay is high at

$9.75 per hour but there are unseen sacrifices. All of the drivers from the university must come to Bethany earlier than the colleee term begins in the fall. In the winter while other students are enjoying two extra weeks of free time, the drivers are back at work. In the spring, the drivers have to remain in town until the end of May when PC Schools are out. "T h e job is fun and it fits in perfectly with college. I go to work in the morning and then attend classes during the day and in the

afternoon, I go back to work. The kids are good and the pay helps out with college expenses," said Julie Unruh, freshman, substitute driver Julie's twin sister, Jennifer, also was a substitute driver Training for the drivers is extensive. A six hour class must be attended and then the potential drivers get a commercial driver's license. Another training session for the pre-trip and drive is attended. After this the drivers must receive more training and pass a physical. In order to complete the process,

each student attends a five-day workshop to be certified by the state. "Som e junior high girl gave me that bear," said Brad Russell, junior, pointing to a stuffed bear hanging from his bus' rearview mirror "I just stuck it up there." To Brad the act seemed insignificant. But to that little junior high girl who saw the bear there every day, it was a reminder that her driver cared. Just like the care provided by every other student driving the big yellow buses across town, by Marica Feisal

H a bita t P r o v id e s M inistry by Kendra Thomson Habitat for Humanity was a Christian housing ministry whose objective was to eliminate poverty housing and to make decent shelter a matter of conscience.

scheduled workdays once a month. "M y coal is to get our students and faculty physically interacting with the community I want them to see that there are others to help besides ourselves," said Executive Vice President of Campus M inistries, Herb

Albertson, senior The volunteers worked at the NW 44th site in Oklahoma City and at the Edmond site. The new and returning R.A.s and R.D.s worked on the Edmond site for their "H oly Sweat" project. "W e spent a few hours working hard,

but knew that we were giving an unmeasurable gift to someone that we would probably never see," said Garey R.A., Lou Ludwig, junior "I felt that it was a way that I could help someone out with an action behind the scenes. They may never see me, but I

was able to provide a m inistry to them," sa Brad Townley, sophomore. The project was a way in which Southe Nazarene University students and faculty could selflessly give < their time and talents to benefit those in need.

People No Better Place On Earth

L iv in g W it h o u t R o o t : by Marcia Feisal Adaptability was the most valuable lesson that missionary's and pastor's children learned. Called PK's or M K's, these students viewed Christianity much differently than their peers at school. All the students said that there were many advantages to being the pastor's kid, but some also said there were some negative points of view too. Shawn Wedel, freshman, said he was often defensive about his father's messages, beliefs and position. He mentioned the time a girl next to him at his high school baccalaureate complained about his dad's message length. "I went off on her It was only five minutes long," he said. Another pk, Heather Snavely, freshman, said that one drawback to dad preaching was that anytime she did

something wrong everyone knew about it. Marla Murray, freshman, liked the benefits of being

special. "It's kind of nice to be the center of attention. The people

m en c o n

way isn 'f neces­ sarily the right way to do every­ thing..." Stephania Langford, junior are extra nice to you when you move into a church and you belong," she said. As grandchildren of the Nazarene church's first missionary, Elmer Schmelzenbach, Brian, senior, and Barry, freshman, also grew up as missionary children. Brian said that the missionary visiting at church with a slide show was a cliff note

version of life as a missionary He lived in Africa until he was eight and still considers Africa home. "It was a struggle to move back to the states. I was a citizen of a country that wasn't hom e," he said. Brother Barry said his perception is different from his peers. "I was brought up in a different culture, so my view on education and everyday society is different," Barry added. Stephania Langford, sophomore, said her experiences influenced her major, international studies and Spanish. "I saw that there was more than one way of doing things. The American way isn't necessarily the right way to do everything, just because that's how we do it," Stephania said. She spent four years in the mission

field, one year in Pei and three in Costa Rica. Chad Dodds, sophomore, grew up South Africa and his accent is more than little British. "T h e benefits were learning independen< and the opportunity be cross-cultural and m ulti-lingual," said Chad who plans a lil in missions. "O ne disadvantage that you have no roots," Chad added. Although missiom and pastor's kids looked and dressed 1 any other student ori campus, on the insid they were different f the experience. "You see the bad times and have a mu clearer view of what it's really like to be m issionary," said Brian. For pk's and mk's life of service for the Lord was not an option, it was a way life.

F r e sh m a n F r o n t ie r s by Darren Currin Campus life: a new frontier As the freshmen arrived on campus, they were faced with a plethora of changes. Most handled them with great ease, while others had a difficult time adjusting. Feelings of homesickness and the challenges of having a roommate made it harder for these freshmen to adapt to their new surroundings. To help all freshmen adapt to campus life, student development designed many activities and events for them. "People really go out of their way to make you feel welcome here," said Matt Thompson, freshman. The most prominent change that these new freshmen had to deal with, was life. Being thrown together with all kinds of different

people was difficult at first, but as time wore on freshmen began to see the fun and closeness of living in the dorm. There were still days when the old homesickness bug crept up. "Yes, I do get homesick, but I keep myself busy so that I won't miss my home,"

Why did you chose to come tc SNU?

" I cameto be­ cause ofthe Christian atmosphere." -Bill K innam on, freshm an

C old W ar C omplaints Darren Currin and Lori M. Smith Under its old name, SAGA, students called it the "Soviet Attempt to Gag America." Just as Soviet-American relations improved with end of the cold war, student-food service relations improved with the end of the cold food. In years past, SAGA, recently changed to Marriott, had a negative image. The food was bland, or cold, or there weren't enough deserts. In protest, some students wrapped their dishes in paper napkins or bent silverware. Comment cards were made available to students to voice complaints or make suggestions. Kurt Hermansen, manager, was concerned witn the quality of the food and

keeping students happy W ith this in mind, improvements were made. New carpet and tile was installed. Black serving trays replaced the bright orange ones. Tables with napkin lined baskets of silverware took the place of the steel racks with plastic cups. "T h e trays and the way that they have everything set up is really nice," commented Lori Gosney, freshman. Variety and quality was another improvement. More entrees were available at each meal. Students could choose from pasta, hamburgers, Mexican food or a sandwich. "The quality of the the food is better," said M ichelle Colon, sophomore.

S n u is a fine in­ stitution that repre­ sents God in a won­ derful way. I believe in the motto, Char­ acter, Culture and Christ. I picked this institution out of all the others because it will show me a ivay to live a better life." "

G et D o w n Why did you chose to come to SNU?

" I just didn't want to be known by my Social Security num­ ber." -Tim H oliew ay, freshm an

" F o r me, it was ei­

ther SN U or the army. I went to a Youth-O-Rama on my district and some recruiters from SNU were there. My pas­ tor started talking to me about SNU and I decided it was a bet­ ter place to go than the army."

T o E a r th by J. Alan Coleman Changes abounded all over campus this year, and the Learning Center was no exception to the changes. "W e experience an ongoing process of change," said Bea Flinner, head of Library Public Services. The largest change made in the library was the movement of all periodical resources, excluding bound periodicals, down to the first floor '"All public-oriented services were moved to the first floor," said Shirley N Pelley, Library Director Other changes included the movement of the copy machine, the microfiche printer and all of the cd-RO M computers down to the first floor "W e wanted to make all of our public

services readily available to all who would use our center, regardless of their abilities or disabilities," added Pelley Pelley mentioned another reason for the changes was if all of the resource material is on one floor, the resource director can better her capacity The director can give help to anyone who would need it more easily Some students were confused by the changes, but most were pleased with the decision. "W hen school started, the general consensus was confusion. Once they started using the library, however, most students liked the new arrangem ent," said Michelle M cBeth, junior and a three-year library assistant.

E x p o sin g G e n iu s by Lori Hamilton Have you ever thought that the people you live with could one day be famous? Students with hidden talents were people involved in activities for which they were not always recognized. From music to business, students involved themselves in activities that created a sense of pride. One popular group was the Jigsaw Saints. The members were David Rosfeld, freshman, Chad Hutto, sophomore, Kevin W elk, junior, and Damon A kins, off campus. Their repertoire consists of songs from the late '60s through the early '80s and songs written by themselves.

"Being in Jigsaw Saints is a lot of fun. It is a chance for me to cut loose for awhile and do what I love to do, play the guitar " said Hutto. Other musical talent was revealed in a radio jingle sung by Angie LaPaglia, junior During the summer, Angie went to her home town of Clovis, New Mexico and recorded a jingle for the Amarillo Tri-State Fair "It was a lot of fun. Recording in a real recording studio was exciting." said LaPaglia. In journalism , Christine Longley, senior, had an article about relationships published in the Nazarene magazine, "Bread." She also had a

fiction story published in "Teens Today " "Actually seeing your work on paper and knowing people are reading it everywhere, is an awesome feeling." said Longley In business, students went to W ashington, D.C. and competed in the nationals for the Phi Beta Lambda International Leadership competition. These students included Johnathan Meeks, Sandra Parks, Melanie Bjerk, sophomores, Danny Thomason and Greg Hall, juniors. Greg Hall finished tenth in the competition. These students were just a few with "Hidden Talents."

How would you like to have developed another's potential by sharing your own corporate training experience with them? How about having changed the lives of others by exposing them to education in a Christian atmosphere? Or hoyv would you like to have made a decision between two equally good choices that will affect the future of many people? These are just some of the things new faculty and staff members experienced. Some had sat in the classrooms of SNU as students came back to

experience life on the other side of the desk. Dr Dennard, a graduate of SNU, taught at the SNU School of Business

job involving social work in Florida, Smith found it nice to actually see the fruit produced as a result of his labor It was rewarding to see the changes in people's lives as they were exposed to the Nazarene philosophy and values. He felt his work was not only as a teacher, but as a missionary as well. After graduating from SNU in 1990, Len Empie went to teach in the aviation program at Northwestern Michigan College in Traverse City, M ichigan for a year and then worked his way back to Oklahoma. His desire for flying started around the time he was in the fifth or sixth grade. It was then he

had won a contest a church and the prize was going on a plan ride with his pastor pilot.

Security systems in ie four dorms were ^graded over the immer Each dorm as equipped with a agnetic lock on the iter doors. To get to the lobbies, an ID rd was required. "This system was

geared for different breaks. It was for those weekends when there were few people on campus. It kept out people that were not from the school that could cause problem s," said Phil Brown, Bracken Resident Director The V doors, those leading from the lobbies to the dorm rooms, were also set up with magnetic locks. Sometimes, the new system was

inconvenient to students. "It was a pain when moving into the dorm. It also bothered me when my family and friends came into town to visit," said Christi Overstreet, sophomore. ID cards became more valuable because they were not only used for meals in Marriott, but also served as a key to get into the dorms. A lost card or damaged bar on the back meant

trouble. "T h e worst was when you had broken or lost your card and then you had to pay $10 to get a new one. That was way overpriced," said Dallas W illorford, sophomore. Similar to the security system previously installed in the athletic dorms at the University of Oklahoma, this system was the first installed in any of the Nazarene Universities.

D r e s s in g U p T o H a n g o u t by Andrea Borlase Have you ever wondered if what we did in 1992 had any similarity with the things professors did "long ago?" In the 1950's, although there were fewer fast food restaurants, they were still used as places to socialize. On campus, dinner was eaten in a family style setting. All students ate at the same time with the same people for the entire semester "Every Friday night was dress up night for dinner A host and

hostess were selected at the beginning of the semester and had the duty of decorating the table with a centerpiece and colored napkins," explained graduate, Delores Wood. Cars were a priority in the late 1960's according to Stephen Gunter, a former SNU graduate. "SG A put on a car race at a dragstrip at the riverbottom of the South Canadian River on Fridays. There were checkered flags, lights, and the whole set up. I had a "57 Ford Fairlane. That was my race car," said Gunter

Gunter also said that eating out was a much bigger production than today "Tony's Via Roma was the favorite place to take that special someone. It wasn't unusual to get really dressed up in a suit coat and tie and go out to eat. That's culturally changed," said Gunter That was the way of the sixties. W ithin a decade, hangouts became casual and group oriented. "The Village Inn on 39th street was the place for late night studying. Most of the hanging out was

recreational eating, but going to concerts like John Denver and the Carpenters was popular, too," explained 1978 graduate, Pam Broyles. Besides John Denver concerts, hang outs remained basically the same. "A lot of things done today are still the same. We just wore different clothing," said Gunter Those without transportation often found on campus diversions from studying. "N ot very many people had cars, so we

would go to "The Drag" which was ir what is now the Fir Arts Building. I remember one nigh my roommate and I had been studying our shorty pajamas I had a craving for caramel sundae.

The business department added a new program this year called "Fam ily and Consumer Studies," formerly the home economics department. "There was a certain stigma attached to the term h om e econom ics. By changing the department to family and consumer studies and focusing more attention on family and fashion, we removed any pre­ conceived notions. W e can now develop a first-class program from scratch." "It is a great opportunity for those of us who were here as it was just beginning," said Jon Adams, sophomore.

The program offers courses such as fashion merchandising, family relations, internship and consumer behavior They also formed an organization OHEA, Oklahoma Home Economics Association. It was started for

students from other schools such as Oklahoma State University, to come together and have conferences and to fellowship. by Glenna Jones

positive performances reflect renovations by J. Alan Coleman Performing in an instrumental group involved much more than just putting on a show for an audience. Rehearsals, section practices and individual practice time were all integral parts of making a performance listenable for an audience. Several instrumental groups performed this year, the largest being the concert band which grew to 41 members. "T h is is the largest group to perform as a band here in over 20 years/' said Phil Moore, instrumental music director Performing alongside the concert band was the jazz band and the brass choir All three musical groups performed at the two Festivals of Song, held in Houston and Little Rock, respectively Before the Houston Festival, the three groups stopped at Six Flags in Dallas, Texas, to perform. This year, the instrumental groups also made a journey to Tulsa to play in the first ever Tulsa Festival of Music in mid-November

The jazz bands performed at many local events, including concerts at nursing homes, on campus, and at other various community events. One special highlight of the season was a performance for the Oklahoma Hospital Association at the Myriad Plaza. "T h e show was great. I love performing in that type of environment. We played well and the crowd really enjoyed our performance," said drummer Jon Imel, sophomore. The brass choir also traveled to Mexico over Christmas break. The choir also played at the state capital during the first semester All three performance groups were able to take advantage of the new facilities. "The renovations on the Fine Arts Building are starting to pay off We are attracting higher quality musicians and we are just starting to see positive results. These groups are definitely the most talented I've seen here in years," added Moore.

singers and ringers ministering through music performance by David White Busy weekends, hours of practice, traveling, church potlucks and music memorization marked the lives of students and faculty in Chorale, Handbell Choir and University Singers. Singing at churches in the region and attending various contests kept the 30 member chorale on the move. Fundraisers took up a lot of the Chorale's time as they worked to raise money for an overseas trip. The group, led by Dr David M iller, performed in concerts at Six Flags, the Christmas Madrigal concert, and the spring concert in April. "Professor M iller is very encouraging because he reminds us that we are singing for m inistry and not strictly for entertainm ent." said Jennifer Assel, freshman.

Another musical group, the University Singers, was led by Dr David Alexander The "U -Singers" performed at Six Flags and held several concerts including the Songs of Romance concert in February and selections from Broadway musicals in April. "D r Alexander is a funny person. He cracks jokes all the time. He demands respect but he still allows us to have fun," said Heather Robinson, freshman. The Handbell Choir performed at Six Flags, Homecoming, the Christmas Concert and at area churches. "Handbells are being used more and more as a worship medium in churches. We thought it would be a good idea to use a choir to help train people for handbell choirs," said Cherrie Hampton, handbell choir director

global coverage keeping up with the changes

Keeping up with today's changing world is definitely not a job for the meek. The publications offices kept up with the changes. For the first time, the Echo newspaper and the Arrow yearbook combined resources, offices and workrooms. "There's more room and we can spread out m ore," said Greg Carroll, junior Leading the ARCO staff (Arrow/Echo) were Echo Editor Christine Longley and Arrow Editor Lori M. Smith. "T h is is the first time I know of that anyone served as editor two years in a row ," said Smith. To help ease the pain of meeting deadlines, four new

M acintosh computer-publishing systems were installed in the new ARCO office. "W e're finally moving the publications into the tw enty-first century," said Longley Smith added, "O n e problem we foresaw with the combination of offices was deadline times, but the Macs will help us out a lo t." By meeting their deadlines, the staffs have a chance to compete in several competitions. The Arrow staff regularly competes in the Associated Collegiate Press/College Media Advisors competition. In addition to putting out a weekly paper, the Echo staff competes in the Nazarene Collegiate Journalism

competition. "W e did really well last year, bringing back three first places and two third places," said Longley This year, the Echo staff also offered clips from the Daily Oklahoman about world events "O u r main goal for the paper this year is to make the Echo graphically appealing and clean," said Longley Laura Sheldon, freshman believed publications were important to a school's function. "Publications like the Arrow and the Echo give us insight into our immediate community, while also letting us catch a glimpse of the world around us," she said. by J. Alan Coleman

inquiring minds want to know communicating through effective questions Today's society has grown at an incredibly fast rate. In order to be prepared to handle this rapid society, students learned the basic principles of mass communication, education and human relations. Students in mass communication were taught the effects of media on society, and how a Christian should respond to the media. They were also instructed in how they could make a difference in the media. The department also gave journalism majors hands on experience through its weekly newspaper, the Echo, and its yearbook, the A rrow Through these publications

they learned how to be dedicated and effective journalists. Education, as usual, was in demand of highly qualified people. The school met these demands by providing education majors with the background to effectively teach others. The education department also felt very strongly about the education of children so extensive classes were offered to students. They wanted the children of tomorrow to have a strong foundation for their future academics. In addition to education, students were provided courses

in human relations. Studies in sociology, psychology and other relations gave students the tools to better understand their fellow man and help him when he was in need. The courses were very extensive and difficult, but the department felt Christians in the world today must be able to relate to others in order to be effective witnesses. These studies educated and encouraged students to be strong witnesses for the Lord in a dark world in need of the Light. by Darren Currin

life-long learning adults commit to academic excellence

Boasting the highest retention rate for graduation on campus is the College of External Programs with an 80 percent rate. External Programs became the College of External Programs in the summer W ith the change, Dr Paul Sechrist was named Dean. Around 200 adult students graduate each year through the College of External Programs. The college is made of Management of Human Resources, M HR, Family Studies and Gerentology, FSG; Prior Learning Assessment and General Studies, GS. MHR and FSG are programs designed for adult students with 62 earned hours of college credit. The students are put into a "group" which meets four hours weekly for 14 months. "Because of the program's organization, it is possible for fulltime working adults to complete the degree they have desired to complete for a long time. In addition, FSG offers a degree in a marketable area of great interest in today's

I

society," Deb Lehman, FSG Group four said. Over 65 M HR groups have been welcomed into the program since January 1986. FSG's first group graduated in January of 1991 and group six began course work in February Prior Assessment and GS students are not enrolled in a group because they are earning credits to be admitted into MHR, FSG or Associate of Arts degree in General Studies. Two changes have occurred in the structure of the College of External Programs. The Tulsa Center opened in First City Bank in south Tulsa. Five groups have started in Tulsa since September 1990. The other change was a move on campus. FSG moved from Herrick to the second floor of Royce Brown.

Over 200 graduates were awarded degrees during the 86th Commencement. The ceremony was held in Bethany First Church of the Nazarene on May 19, 1991. Stephen Nease, Education Commissioner of the Church of the Nazarene, spoke on "T h e Gospel in N ikes." A select group of students and personnel of the School of Music performed " A Mighty Fortress" as arranged by Vaclav Nelhybel, and Melissa Van Camp sang "In the Name of the Lord" by Sandi P Helvering.

Two students were awarded outstanding honor Sheryl Crouch and Brian Turner were given the G ood Citizen A w ard by Dr Don Beaver, Vice President for Academic Affairs, who retired after graduation. The Monday following graduation brought the realization that undergraduate work was over for good. "It felt great. I didn't have to take tests anymore, and I could stay up late because I wanted to, not because I had to. I was ready to go out, find a job, and join the work force," said

Bertha Navarro-Cavasos. For some, with the freedom also came the realization that a special time in their life had ended. Brian Turner said, "Y ou're sad that the relationships are over " For several, graduation was the culmination of four years of intense studying. "It's the epitome of your whole school career It's what you work so hard for during your time at school," added Cavasos. by Teri R. Hamlin

Since the beginning, this cam­ pus placed a strong emphasis on missions. Over 400 alumni have served as missionaries to other nations. Interest in m issions was con­ tinued through several m iss io n s-o rie n te d grou ps lik e World Christian Fellowship, and Mu Kappa, an organization for missionary kids. Students also had several opportunities to go on work and witness trips to other countries. Those trips began in 1966 when one of the denomination's first work and witness teams left Bethany for northern Mexico. Students have since served in Guyana, Belize and the Soviet Union. "By the year 2000, we hope ev­ ery student will be able to go on at least one work and witness trip during their career here. We hope to become the number one training institution for under­ graduate students who are called to m issions," said Dr Howard Culbertson, chaplain. Many missions organizations were hoping to build a church for every people group by the year 2000. There are currently 6000 people groups who do not have v i b r a n t w i t n e s s i n g churches in their midst. The Church of the Nazarene did its part to meet this goal. The

Who knows how many countries we'll be in by the year 2000?" said Culbertson. It was expected that 400-600 people will go on the annual work and witness trip to Mexico by the year 2000.

With five people and five sep­ arate schedules, it was hard to match a meeting time for every­ one on a class council. When a meeting time was agreed upon, decisions could be made and plans set so the council could reach its goals for a party or class activity The Sophomore Class council

found out early in the year that it was important to work together

\

'Thinking back to Welcome Week it was hectic, but it was also a special time because we were all in it together The most important thing was to keep communication open and to try to overlook the little an­ noying things," said Annette Crow, Sophomore Class secre­ tary The Junior Class council felt it was important to include their class members. A committee of class members called T h e Party People' was formed to plan and advertise parties. "By having T h e Party People/ we have been able to get more accomplished by involving our class members," said Mercy Eyadiel, Junior Class president. As a new council, the Fresh­ man Class officers had to learn quickly how they could best get things done for their class. "W hen someone on council can't do something, another offi­ cer just steps in an does it. We try to be sensitive to the other officers' needs," said Ramon Wycoff, Freshman Class vice

president of social life. The Senior Class council was consistent in working together to plan events. They tried to bond their class together during the last year before graduation. "W e met once a week to share ideas and make decision on what activities we wanted to plan for the senior class," said Katrina Springer, Senior Class vice president of campus ministries. Through successful parties and class activities, the councils reached their goal of class unity Though schedules were hectic and meetings were not always convenient, the parties were planned and the work was done.

Breaking the regular routine was routine for members of the Gospel Team and Mission Cru­ saders. Both groups were con­ stantly on the go. Being gone on Sundays, along with weekly practices and chapels made it al­ most impossible for the mem­ bers of these groups to have an active part in any of the churches in the Oklahoma City area. "It doesn't bother me because I know we're going to churches to spread the gospel," said Gos­ pel T eam m em ber S h erri McNabb, freshman.

by Andrea Borlase Down the dark halls of Garey and Hatley she walked. The time was midnight. There was a pounding at your door Who could it be? You opened your door to find the familiar face of your friendly RA.

almost like mom never left

by Andrea Borlase An RA was not just someone who conducted nightly room checks, but she was also a friend or even a role model to some. They were someone to tell your problems to and they were there just to listen. An RA held many duties and responsibilities. "The RA meetings were first priority You had to be there. We talked about what's coming up, room checks, and scheduling our calendars. We have a devotion which is usually very inspiring. After that, everyone just lets loose. It's like a big family because you can talk about anything. It's hard to get serious because it's so much fun," stated

Denise W atson, senior, Garey third floor RA. The job of an RA was not all fun and games, when problems occurred it was a difficult job. "It's a fun job, but it can be hard when you're faced with the situation of discipline. Like any job, there are times that are more stressful than others. The worst part is reporting one of my girls to the RD for breaking the rules," said Stone. RAs were more than just people carrying out a job; they were caring friends and good listeners. Most importantly, they ensured the safety and well being of he students. Although it was a job, it had numerous advantages. "M y job as RA consists of planning monthly parties, doing room checks, attending weekly RA meetings and monthly RA in-services, and answering questions or helping in any way possible. I like being an RA very much. It's fun and very rewarding," replied Jackie Stone, senior, RA Hatley Hall second floor Weekly, there were RA meetings which could last from 30 minutes to two hours. At these meetings, different issues were discussed such as upcoming events and the planning of parties. The meetings were mandatory, however, being serious was not of the essence. Having fun seemed to be the largest part of the RA meetings.

much more to the job than just room checks and lobby duty Students ?usually never see the bitter aspects of the position. There are many aspects to the RA's job and one of the most important is enforcing the rules. Most students, at one time or another, would like to play po­ licemen and enforce the rules. But nobody would like placing friends and peers into trouble. That was the situation an RA sometimes found themselves in. "The toughest situations are when you know that what you are doing is good for them, but they don't realize it," said Snow­ barger RA, Todd Moore, senior "I treat everyone the same. They always respect my author­ ity ," said Snow barger RA, Shawn Robertson, junior One problem with being a RA is consistency with friends. How do you react to your friends? "Some guys react with sur­ prise and then realize I'm only doing my job," related Moore.

Between studying, going to class and being involved in dif­ ferent organizations on campus, there was not much extra time on anyone's hands. However, there were those who made time in order to help others. The members of Big Hands Helping Little Hands and the peer coun­ selors were dedicated to spend­ ing quality time helping others. Big Hands Helping Little Hands focused on ministering to children. The club was fairly new on campus and was still in the beginning stages of getting started. "Our funds are really low right now and so our outreach is limited. In the future, I'd like to start an after school program for latchkey kids, get involved at the orphanage and at the convales­ cent centers as well," said Gina Dubowski, junior, president.

As Big Hands Helping Little Hands as dedicated to helping children, the peer counselors were just as dedicated in helping students. They were a group of students who made themselves available to their fellow students for a friendly ear in times of need. Many times the peer coun­ selors had to sacrifice their own needs in order to be available for others. "You have to sacrifice a lot time. You have to put down whatever you're doing and think about the other person," said Todd Ray Brant, sophomore. Being a peer counselor was quite an experience for several members of the group. They learned a great deal about relat­ ing to people. "Before you would ask people how they're doing and just walk on, but now when you ask, you

really pay attention and it makes you realize that this person is really hurting," said Joy Eddens, senior

Churches, camps, concerts, young influential high school kids and older alumni. What do these things have in common? The answer is Heartsong and the C ollegian s W eekend after weekend these two groups went out, put on their best smiles and sang their hearts out while min­ istering to their audiences. Heartsong was a new addition to the public relations team this year The group was first put to­ gether as a fill-in group for camps during the summer, but churches began calling and sending request for the girls to sing. Heartsong has been a hit ever since. "Heartsong has become not only a way to recruit high school students, but it has been a chance for me to use my talent, given to me by God, to minister to other people," said Frisa Boulet, junior Hard work, dedication, friend­ liness and lots of smiles made up the foundation of these two groups. At times the stresses of road trips, group organization,

and little sleep tended to bring the members down, but through the frustrations and tired bodies the smiles always remained. "N o matter how tired or stressed out I got, whenever I was in front of a group of people m inistering God's w ord, I

special speakers come and talk to them about the field of accounting. "W e really have a great time in the math club. It is not all fun and games, but we try to have fun," said Jason Crouch, freshman of Delta Epsilon. These clubs were also kept busy not just working on math, but working on their pitching arm. The business department sponsored the Ultimate Challenge II where the business clubs challenged their professors to some friendly physical competitions. These clubs participated in softball, volleyball, bowling, tennis and basketball. They stimulated their minds as well with an investment challenge where students had a chance to play the stock market. The games were all in fun and gave club members a chance to break away from numbers and figures and break in their running shoes. "It was enjoyable to make something that is usually considered boring into something that was a lot of fun," said Greg Goff, freshman, member of Delta Epsilon.

Every student experienced the sinking feeling each semester when the books were pulled from the shelves at The Univer­ sity Store and the total was rung up on the cash register "That will be $?!% #.00." The sinking feeling just fell all the way down to the pit of the stomach and a horrifying reality set in. It cost money to attend school and the beginning of every se­ mester always seemed to be when the wallet was hit hardest. Tuition, fees and books and sup­ plies topped lists of expenses. The average price of books for a semester was about $200 un-

back breaking books bust budgets by Marcia Feisal less one was a nursing major The nursing major purchased a set of books at the beginning of the junior year for $600 and then used the books until graduation. "We literally carry nursing major's books out on a dolly to

their cars or over to the dorms," said Reggie Coleman, manager of The University Store. "The nursing majors are not unsuspecting, however The nursing department always calls over for an estimate on the costs and tell the students in advance so they can prepare them ," he added. Many factors enter into the price of textbooks. Colors used, the number of photographs, graphics and materials for pro­ fessors add to the cost of the book. Paperback textbooks aver­ age cost was between $20-$30 while hardcover books averaged about $5 more per book. Al t h o u g h s t ude nt s c o m ­ plained about the prices of the books, Reggie pointed out that the prices were very compatible with other bookstores. "T h e prices will not vary more than five percent in any store across the country The prices are the same any where you go," he said. He also added that book sales had a small profit margin. One positive occurred after finals during book buy-back. Students could return books to the store and if the books would be used again the next semester, the student received half of the money back. For exam ple, R eggie ex ­ plained, the speech book, C om ­ m unicate , which sold for $25 was worth $12 at buy-back. "So a student that purchases $100 worth of books could get $40$50 back at the end of the semes­ ter," he added.

Providing students with op­ portunities to break from week­ ends full of stress and tons of homework and attend fun and entertaining events were the As­ sociated Men's Students and the Associated Women's Student or­ ganizations. Both were elected by the student body The first semester activities included Big Sis 'lil Sis, a mixer for freshmen and upperclass­ men girls, Power Puff and Mr University, Fall Fest, and a Homecoming breakfast. Second semester included the western party, which was a bunch o f people d ressin ' up lik e cow boys h a v in ' a party , Mom's Weekend,

Men's and Women's week, the Softball Marathon, Golf Tour­ nament, Wrestle Maniacs which were mock wrestling matches and a senior tea. "Coming up with ideas for parties turned out to be a lot of fun. During meetings we would become very silly while we brainstormed for ideas," said Warren Tates, senior Once a theme had been estab­ lished, the council would then

split into committees and plan every detail from food and enter­ tainment to decorations and Par­ ty Pics. "N o matter how hard you try and plan out every little detail, you can always be sure some­ thing was forgotten or will go

THE INTRAMURAL BATTLE CRY: CATCH THESPIRTTOF INVOLVEMENT by Michelle Farley Society captains found that their battle began long before the team ever came together to compete against another society in intramural sport competitions. Getting society members to participate was a battle in itself. "People are in class, studying, out on a date or involved in other groups," said Theta Gamma Kappa society captain, Sean Bailey, senior In an attempt to encourage society members to participate in the activities, captains called fellow teammates, placed announcements in the Drumbeat, put posters up in the dorms and reminded people of upcoming events when they saw them around campus. "Some just aren't good at a sport and would like to play

something else," said Omega Eta Pi captain, Suzan White, junior Sometimes there would be a good turnout for one sport, but not for another Societies competed in softball, basketball,

The hardest part is contact­ ing a lot of people and they don't show up.' - Shown Robertson, senior football and volleyball. Because freshmen were new to the campus and pumped full of enthusiasm, they were ready to experience all the campus had to offer "Freshmen have more time and are encouraged to get involved at

the beginning," said Lambda Sigma Tau captain, Wendi Zink, junior "It's also a good way for them to meet new people." Greg Shasteen, sophomore, became a captain because he enjoyed playing sports, wanted to be involved with other people and liked to have fun. He was captain for Mu Lambda Mu. In the past, he found some underclassmen were treated unfairly Captains would give upperclassmen more playing time in the games. He decided to become involved and try to make sure the games were fair for everyone. "The main thing I stress," said Shasteen, "is having fun."

COMPANIONS FOUND AMONG UNIQUE GREEKS by Amy Moreland W h ile m ost u n iv e rsitie s pledges sororities or fraternities, this campus had an interesting program so all students could compete in intramural sports. Everyone was assigned to a Greek society as a freshman. There were eight different so­ cieties with at least two captains, and one thing was for sure, the captains and students felt an ul­ timate pride for their society "Tri-N u was awesome this year in sports. We whipped ev­ eryone in softball and we even did well in volleyball and foot­ ball. But softball, we totally dominated in," said Heather Johns, sophomore. "We've got lots of spirit and we won almost every sport. We're wonderful! Basically, our intentions are winning," replied

Chris Parr, sophomore, Beta Psi Epsilon. Of course, all the soci­ eties could not place first, but they all carried tons of spirit and participation. "W e had the most participa­

t e Ve got lots of spirit ond we won olmost every sport We're wonderfulT - Chris Porn sophomore tion and spirit, even in the times we weren't' winning. I'm always proud of the new freshman that come in because they seem to contribute the m ost," stated Sean Conrad, senior, Alpha Rho Delta. "This year, especially in soft­ ball, we had a lot of group close­

ness. The freshman really want­ ed to be out there and play," said Shawn Robertson, junior, Ome­ ga Eta Pi. Some of the society captains really helped to push their team to get out and play "I made sure that everybody knew when we were having games and let them know they could participate, be­ cause I wanted everyone playing and we always had a lot of peo­ ple there," said Anngee Crocker, sophomore, Mu Lambda Mu. "The societies were awesome this year, and no matter who won or lost, the spirit and pride will always be there. "W e made it to the football championship, which we did lose, but I still feel we are the most dominating and awesome society on campus," said Danny Thomason, junior STR IK E O R H O M ERU N ?

by Greg Carroll The Redskin soccer team finished the year with twelve wins and nine loses. Because of their winning record, the team was ranked twenty-third in the nation. The team also produced two All-American players: Alan McLemore, senior, midfielder, and Mark Persson, junior, center midfield. Although the team finished with a winning record, many considered this to be a rebuilding year "W e did well considering this was a rebuilding year I'm confident we will be back on top in 1992," said Coach Wes Harmon. "I'm very optimistic about next year, we have a lot of good people who will be back. We had some freshmen who came in and played very well this year and will be very valuable next year,"

said Mark Persson. "A highlight of the season was how well we played against nationally ranked teams. We won half of the games and we played all the teams very close," said Coach Harmon. Another highlight of the season was two victories over rival OCU, who eventually won the District Nine championship title. These victories helped prepare the Redskins for some tough competition in the upcoming year as they seek to regain the title. The soccer team was characterized this year by their unity Everyone played well together as a team on the field, and they got along together off the field as well. Their unity along with the experience they have gained this season should insure the Redskins an even better season next year

VOLLEY TO A VICTORY by Andrea Borlase "Physically and mentally draining." That was how this season's volleyball practices were described. With a record of 27 wins and 10 losses, it was obvious that the girls worked hard for their achievements. "You must do overall body conditioning. You can't just work at one part of the body such as your arms or your legs, you have to work on mental things, too," stated Robin Brady, senior The hard work paid off with some great triumphs for the volleyball team. "I think our most significant accomplishment happened during our first match against Texas Women's University We had two starters out with injuries and it was the first time we really came together as a team. From then on, we carried that teamwork through

the season," explained Brady The volleyball team does not only work hard toward winning, however They also work for the glory of Christ. "The members of the team took turns working at the concession stand during all the men and women's basketball games. A percentage of the money earned at the games was given to the team, which was used for a mission trip to Mexico," said Marla Davis, freshman. The volleyball team felt confident that teamwork was one of their strong points and the friendships they made will last forever "W e were a team that wouldn't quit, even in a time when things seemed like they couldn't get much worse. But the hard times just brought us closer together and made us want to win!" exclaimed Brady

BUILDING A PYRAMID OF HIGH EXPECTATIONS by Amy Moreland and Christine Stoller There was much more to being a yell leader than simply repeating phrases a thousand times. A great amount of time and energy was put into practicing and perfecting motivational skills. This included chants, choreographic drills to music, making posters, and most of all having a spirited personality It was frustrating to stand in front of a dismal group of people and try to get them to cheer This did not seem to bother Brad Douglas, sophomore, too much. "W e improved ourselves. It doesn't take a crowd to improve us," said Douglas.

The crowd was not what frustrated Clint Rutledge, sophomore, either He had to quit at second semester due to work

7 wos kind of nervous obout being in front of a crowd of first, but I got over i t " - Jeff Johnson, freshman conflicts. "It wasn't all fun, but I did like it. I might be able to work out my schedule to do it again," said Rutledge. A new members to the squad was

Jeff Johnson, freshman, who had a fear others had all been through before. "I was kind of nervous about being in front of a crowd at first, but I got over it," said Johnson. The yell squad made some improvements this season. They had their conflicts but they overcame them. The squad faced the crowd, but also faced some controversy over handing out tomahawks at the Homecoming Midnight Yell. It was feared that Native American students would be offended. The tomahawks were given out after a vote by the squad.

STRONG TIES HOLD THROUGH THICK AND THIN by Kendra Thomson The 1991-92 Redskin team kept high morale through a low season. The team was young with only five returning players. What they lacked in experience, they made up for in unity The team's close relationships kept them going during the low times. "W e get along well, we don't have as much talent as in the past, but we are very close and are able to have fun together," said Jeff Johnston, senior

The team had to utilize many transfer and freshman players. They chose to play here for many different reasons. "I had a chance to go to another school in Indiana, but I already knew a lot of the people and felt that the atmosphere was unique," said Tim Price, junior Team members were blessed with the advantage of establishing relationships that went beyond basketball. "I've enjoyed getting to know the

players and coaches better, as well as developing friends on and off the court," said Chad Thrailkill, junior Even though they didn't win all their games, they never lacked support. Loyal support from alumni, students, and friends. "I decided to come and play here because of the closeness and because of all the people who faithfully support our team ," said M att Gottschalk.

NEW RECRUITS CONTRIBUTE TO A SUCCESSFUL SEASON by Todd Ray Brant Coach Finkbeiner and the Lady Redskins had a great season. With seven games left to go in the regular season, the girls were looking toward a birth in the national tournament in Tennessee. The unity and morale of the team was better than ever Every player enjoyed themselves on and off the court. "W e were put together for a purpose. The trip to Russia was a perfect example of that," said Katrina Springer, a senior, who broke the school score record. The Lady Redskins traveled to Russia over the summer During the visit to Russia, the Lady Redskins played many games

against Russian teams. One of the opposing team members was a Christian. She remarked that she was interested in going to a Christian school. Through hard work and prayer, a place was provided on the Lady Redskins team for Vera Sonnaya. "I'm glad to be here. This is an unique opportunity for me to study in an American Christian university, play ball, communicate with these nice people around me. This is the first time in my life that I am between Christians all of the time. I appreciate it," said Vera Sonnaya. The recruiting this year for the Lady Redskins was great. Besides

getting an excellent Russian player, the team acquired Misti Chennault from the University of Kansas. "The important different between a NCAA university and a NAIA Christian university is the spiritual aspect. It's great to know what you are supporting and who supports you," said Misti Chennault, junior It was a great year for the Lady Redskins. With Nationals in sight, the team relied on the seniors who contributed leadership to the team. The senior girls were Katrina Springer, Christy Johnson, Lori Cloar and Kim Jordan.

STUDENTS WORKING WITH LITTLE RECOGNITION by David White Broadhurst Gymnasium was consumed with a mass of humanity The noise was deafening. As the basketball team trotted out onto the floor the rumble of the crowd was transformed into a roar Excitement was abundant. When the team won an important game the fans were overwhelmed with a sense of pride for their school. The team received a standing ovation as they headed for the locker rooms. However, there was a group that went unnoticed. The staticians and managers contribute greatly to the operation of the team; yet because they work behind the

scenes they are seldom recognized. When a fan opens up a newspaper and pulls out the sports section he usually searches for news about his favorite team. Arguing about sports is one of America's favorite pastimes. "This player is the best!" the fan exclaims. His friend may argue. "But," the fan says, "check out the stats!" Statistics also allow a coach to acquire an accurate representation on how well a player is performing. The coach can then rotate players in and out of a game to raise the quality of the team's performance. The managers quite possibly

had the dirtiest job of all. They kept the team running like clockwork. Managers provided towels and water during the game. They generally did everything the team needed to have done. If something was needed the manager obtained it. If a job needed to be done the managers did it. Without the managers, the team would have been in chaos. The team members may have received the glory The coaches probably got the credit for the victories. But, the jobs of the staticians and managers often went unnoticed.

Thomas Leupp will al­ ways be remembered as Mr Optimism, the Ambassador of Praise, the smiling man and as an encourager. As an unofficial “host” and mem­ ber of the staff for Student Recruitment at SNU, Mr. Leupp shook students’ hands, gave them an encour­ aging word and stopped to pray with them about their current concerns and future aspirations. SNU’s campus was not the only place where his unfailing cheer warmed hearts and caused faces to shine. He worked his entire life with students - teaching, coaching and af­ firming them. Hundreds and hundreds of letters, faxed messages and cards poured into the Leupp’s permanent home in Port­ land, Oregon after his sudden death in June, 1991 Each message was worded differently, but all said the same thing, “Tom Leupp cared. He loved. He gave. He was a true servant for the Lord.” He loved and was married to Pro­ fessor of Education, Dr. Edythe Leupp for 48 years. They have five children and five grandchildren. He served the Lord in the following capacities: organizer of Parkrose Church of the Nazarene in Oregon; teacher of elementary and high school; high school basketball and baseball coach; superintendent of a large (K-8) school district, Assistant Superinten­ dent of MacLaren School for Boys; Dean of Students for Northwest Naza­ rene College; two term mayor of Nam­ pa, Idaho; Idaho’s Republican candi­ date for US Congress; President of Cascade College in Portland; Assistant Superintendent of Molalla Union High District, Oregon; Assistant to the Pres­ ident of George Fox College; SNU Student Recruitment Staff and field representative for Robert Schuller ministries. Tom Leupp brightened the campus and every place he ever walked.
