Social


So

cial life on campus is one of kind, a feel that is not present on many campuses across the country. Despite not having a Greek system, students still find a way to make friends and experience life as a college student. Students will tell you that they do just fine without the Greek life. The residence halls on campus do have stereotypes, but this does not deter or exclude students from mingling or making lifelong friendships. The school has a diverse group of students who all come together for each event held on campus without the rivalry of who pops their collar or bumps their hair the highest. The athletes, the geniuses and the hippies all cherish one another because without each, Hendrix would not be Hendrix. Students from all categories and classifications are connected through many social channels present on campus. Weekly hump night events, various events hosted by the multitude of clubs and organizations, whether for educational or pure amusement purposes, everyone is welcome. Among the many details that hold Hendrix to its truly unique form, the most treasured detail would be that it does not matter who you are, where you are from, or what your beliefs are. The common bond is the freedom to be who you are, and that is enough to “gain access� to any club, organization, or party. The fact that students are accepted for who they are gives Hendrix a bit of social flare not found at other colleges and universities. Doors are open wherever students may go on campus and that is why social life Hendrix is one of a kind.

Cars were not left idling too long before they were swarmed with somewhat sweaty upperclassmen, ready to move mini fridges and countless plastic storage containers. Right: The Freshmen class of 2013 and OR leaders listen intently to instructions given at playfair. Playfair was an event held during orientation week to help break the ice for nervous freshmen via silly games and “getting to know you” activities. Freshmen got to know their fellow classmates by games such as “The Boss and The Big Cheese.”

Orientation


“1776: The Revolutionary OR!” Countless hugs are had, farewells are said, and a few stray tears are shed as freshmen say their last good byes to their parents before embarking on college life. After tearful mothers are coaxed away, the door is closed and the scent of humidity and mildew waifs through the air. Home sweet Hendrix home! The theme for 2009 orientation was “1776: The Revolutionary OR!” The class of 2013 was asked to make a revolution in their first weeks as students on campus, breaking away from the comfort of home, meeting new people and discovering new things while living the “Hendrix experience”. “Homesickness” was a foreign word for the freshmen class of 2013 with an activity packed orientation week. “I was nervous because I didn’t know anybody. They had us doing so much that I forgot to be sad. We were so busy I forgot I didn’t know anybody,” said freshman Marissa Stengle. Events such as Playfair, Pizza Wars, and countless meetings filled the days for new students. “It was

so busy that it wasn’t really that bad. It was kind of like camp I guess,” Freshman Josephine Reese said. After a tiring week of meeting new faces, awkward moments, and forgotten names, freshmen packed up once again, but in smaller quantities, to go on their OR trips. OR trips gave freshman the opportunity to create lasting memories with new friends through a variety of adventures. Injured and dehydrated cyclists, hikers and volunteer workers returned to Hendrix aching and itchy, courtesy of poison ivy, but happy and a few new inside jokes. “It helped me adjust from leaving the people of my home. And it also gave me an introduction into the college life,” freshman Concorde Habineza, said. Habineza was an exchange student from Rwanda.

“It helped me adjust fr leaving the people of om home. And it also gave my a n in tr o d u c ti o n in to me th e college life.”

Musical

C h a i r s

It is said that “music feeds the soul.” Students (rather their souls) had the opportunity to sample some new food for thought at KHDX’s fall and spring concerts—feasting their ears upon some rising talents and internationally acclaimed bands. The Dandy Warhols were invited to play at the fall concert that follows Shirttails. The Oregonian rock band began turning out songs in the mid 1990’s and are known for their song “Bohemian Like You,” which has been featured in some motion pictures. Shirttails week weary freshmen and reunited upper classmen listened to the tunes of the Dandy’s while celebrating the beginning of a new year. Hip-hop duo Clipse performed at the annual spring concert, kicking off Campus Kitty week and raising money for charity. The two brothers, Gene and Terrence Thornton, also known as Malice and Pusha T, began their music career in the early 90’s. The duo’s songs focus on the streets of Virginia (their home state). Clipse has quite a large fan base in the Virginia area and has growing acclaim in more northern states. At both the fall and spring concerts, students

who knew the bands enjoyed listening to familiar tunes while others broadened their musical horizons and listened along. While it is always fun to hear new songs, some students expressed a wish to hear more famous names at the events. “I had a lot of fun that night but I would have been a lot more excited if I had known the band or any of their songs,” said sophomore Allison Beard. There are several reasons why Hendrix isn’t hosting a Britney Spears or Lady Gaga type celebrity. Budget constraints and limited venue space cut down the possible list of performers by quite a large margin. With entertainment being provided throughout the year, money managers find difficulty in shelling out more than twenty thousand dollars for a band to play a mere 3 hour session. So for know, the music buffs and hopeful Justin Bieber fans will have to wait for an impossibly large endowment or some random popular band who is willing to give a tiny liberal arts college a break on concert fees. But who knows? Maybe one day, these semi-obscure musicians will be i-Tunes top 20, and we can truly say we knew them before they were cool. Left: Clipse performs some of their hip hop/rap tunes.

“I loved the Shirttails experience. I really didn’t think practices were that bad. I thought it was worth it because I got to meet a whole lot of people and just have fun getting to know them.

Greek i m i c s

Faux Rush Week is a tradition that honors the Hendrix commitment to mocking typical Greek systems present at many universities around the country. It is a week filled with students participating in games that induce laughter rather than tears. The only tears shed during Faux Rush week may be tears of joy as students attend Foam Party at the end of the week. Due to weeks of seemingly never ending rain, almost all of the events for Faux Rush Week were held indoors, including foam party. However, storm clouds and location changes were not enough to keep the annual event from being a success. “Faux Rush week was great this year. I’ve never had such a good time making fun of Greek life!” Senior Jake Eddington said. Some of the events during Faux Rush Week took place in Hulen Ballroom during Southside Rush. One of the events held was a food-eating contest. Students participated in a round or two of a sugar free, cherry flavored Jell-o eating contest and also a jalapeño-eating contest. To cool down the fire and burn, an intense root beer chugging contest took place. Many students joined in these events, and several were brave enough to attempt the challenges put before them. Through rain, threat of rain, and more rain, students enjoyed a week dedicated to putting a Hendrix spin on greek life. After all, who needs pearls, bump its, and polos to frolic in foam?

Golden r o o v e s

Afros, sequined clothing, platform shoes, and disco balls—SoCo 54 is one of SoCo’s largest annual events that transports desiring dancers and funky footloose students to Studio 54; Hendrix style, and back. The annual event was held in Hulen Ballroom for the last time because the SLTC would be opening in January. The ballroom was transformed into a 70’s style dance club with a light-up dance floor, sparkling bursts of confetti, a mini bar, cage dancers, and a continuous stream of disco music. The theme for the event was “Solid Gold,” and gold was everywhere. Prior to the event, everyone received sparkling golden wristbands. Dazzling signs were placed around campus in order to advertise for the event. At the retro party, colored confetti and black and golden balloons littered the crowded dance floor. Students danced late into the night to 70’s tunes. “I liked the decorations. It was a really fun atmosphere, and I liked the authenticity of the disco scene,” freshman Lacey Freeman said. For the last time in Hulen Ballroom, SoCo 54 was a celebration of the past and a chance for party lovers and hard-working bibliophiles alike to travel back to a time when disco was king and shiny pants were an every day wardrobe choice.

Girl Talk. Girl Will Talk. Girl Can’t Talk. Girl Will Talk Soon. Girl Finally Talks. Girl Talks for 45 minutes. Girl Talks Too Loudly. A story for the history books— a story about a college and a man, and how they finally came together and then apart. Once upon a time, in the summer of ‘09, SoCo booked the Little Rock train station for formal to ensure a venue, but when February ‘10 rolled around and it was announced that Girl Talk (aka Greg Gillis) would be performing, students rushed to get wristbands. Demand exceeded supply by quite a large margin. Originally, SoCo had announced that 750 students would be able to attend, but after two days of long lines, 860 people received wristbands for admittance. Even with 860 wristbands allotted, there was still leftover demand that was not met. Around the campus, frustrations and questions were vented. Why is this a problem now and not before? Why did they allow non-Hendrix students? SoCo and senate members quickly sent emails explaining that SoCo had done the best they could with the time frame and they had no way of predicting the high demand. Alas, on the day of Formal, students received an email explaining that Girl Talk would not be able to perform that Saturday night. Gnashing of teeth, laughter, and disbelief ensued. Gillis was forced to cancel when a snowstorm caused a state of emergency at his home in Pittsburgh, Penn. Tragikly White and DJ King took over entertainment for the evening. All students were allowed to attend. Girl Talk was rescheduled to perform at Martin’s annual Sham Roast on March 10th. After showing up late, Gillis began his show and students partied it up… for 45 minutes until the Conway Police shut the party down due to noise complaints. Students reacted once again. “I think in the future we should work with the Conway police to see how loud is too loud because that really put a damper on everyone’s night,” freshman Trey Kalbaugh said. So this is where this epic story ends. The guest formal wristbands were refunded and life returned to normal. Students will never forget the night that, as the poplar song “Tik Tok” by Ke$ha says, “The Popo shut us DOWN,” and they all, well most, lived happily ever after. 0 1 8 Formal

Greg Gillis, also known as Girl Talk, plays his mashes and mix ups of popular songs for a crowd of students in the brick pit at Martin’s annual Sham Roast. Girl Talk was scheduled to perform at Formal in February, but inclement weather forced the Pittsburgh native to cancel. Despite previous setbacks, Girl Talk was finally able to perform at Sham Roast. The show was cut short by a noise complaint after about 45 minutes.


Zack Dolger, Emma Yingling, and Joe McCain enjoy some comradery in the lobby of the Little Rock Train Station at Formal. Despite a slight fiasco with wristbands and a canceled performer, students, dressed to impress, quickly filled up the venue. Students were not deterred from having a good time even though one of the rooms was capped off at maximum occupancy and then barred due to fire code regulations. Students dance under streams of toilet paper at Sham Roast. Sham Roast was not just a celebration of the luck of the Irish, but also a make-up performance by Girl Talk. Green was the color of the night for students and guests who danced the night away until the police shut down the party.

“I had a guest, so yeah, I was kind of disappointed that they ended up not coming to Formal because of the whole Girl Talk thing. I still had a fun time though. And at Sham Roast, he put on a really good show. I wish I had gotten to be up on stage!� Micah Miller, Freshman


Eye of the K i t t y

“Tigers and kitties and charity fund raising- oh my!” Jungle fever was ablaze for Campus Kitty week 2010. The annual fund raising week was packed full of social and awareness events. The theme was “Jungle Fever: Kitty Gone Wild.” Philanthropic felines went wild, raising money for local Arkansas community organizations and charities. The week started off with hip hop duo Clipse at the spring concert, hosted by KHDX. There were many other events, such as tailgating, the Dean’s poker tournament, video gaming, the homeless vigil, a poetry slam, SOCO’s singing bee, and more. With countless events to advertise and organize, Campus Kitty Committee worked months in advance to plan out the week. The committee members were in charge of planning and advertising the week’s festivities. “I was in charge of the Martin/VZ auction and I found when trying to advertise that a lot of freshmen were unaware of what Campus Kitty week was. That presented a bit of a struggle with trying to educate people on what Campus Kitty does as well as getting people to participate,” said sophomore Hannah Hudspeth. Even with a few obstacles and some unplanned occurrences, jungle fever raged. Freshman Stewart Morgan commented on the success of one event, the body paint fashion show: “It was a great experience because everyone got really into it and worked together to make the show happen. Funny thing is we spent about two hours preparing, five minutes showing, and another hour trying to get the paint off. All in all, though, it was a blast.” Left: Jake Eddington is stalked by the Campus Kitty Tiger at the Martin/Veasey Auction. The cardboard cut out showed up at most Campus Kitty Week events.

Theatre Productions

Sara Goode, played by Beatrice Vena, and Pfeni Rosensweig, played by Kate Brannon, remminice over a childhood moment while enjoying a moment of sisterly bonding. In The Sisters Rosensweig, three Jewish-American sisters attempt to define themselves, culturally and personally, as women in the early 1990’s. The sisters lived extremely diverse lives, but learned from one another’s triumphs and hardships.


Virtuous Imogen, daugter of Cymbeline, played by Vicki Woo, is prey to villainous Iachimo, played by Ben West, as Iachimo slyly slips into her chamber. In the Shakespearean play Cymbeline, Iachimo, a Roman soldier, tricks Imogene’s husband, Posthumus, played by Ryan Hoyle, into betting on his wife’s virtue, unleashing much strife and confusion for all characters involved. Geoffrey Duncan, played by Torey Hayward, entertains the Rosensweig sisters and their guests at a dinner party by dressing Tom Valiunus, played by Brett Carr, as a character from one of his famous plays. Duncan, Pfeni Rosensweig’s partner, struggles with his open sexuality during a caustic time in America’s history for the homosexual comunity. “Working on The Sisters Rosensweig was very enjoyable, since I’d gotten more involved with theatre since The Eumenides, and actually knew the people. It was also a hoot playing a snobbish middle-aged British sophisticate, accent and all. Jacob Halpern-Weitzman and I played rivals who were unable to stand each other in the play, but every time we had one of our acidic exchanges of dialogue onstage, we wouldn’t be able to contain our laughter. I guess that defines the Hendrix Players experience-- it’s hard work, but it’s also almost invariably enjoyable.” Sal Salam, Sophomore


Wednesday S l u m p

I sit in my cave of a dorm room, complete with dampness, mold, dark corners and the occasional lost hiker… or flock of vampire bats, staring off into space and thinking about all of the things on my mental to-do list. I am stressed. It’s Wednesday at seven. What’s an over-worked student to do? Well, I have already devoured some food, courtesy of the caf…The bananas and apples were missing again—mental note to self to check up on that. I’ve already facebook stalked everyone from my old high school. I can not do more chemistry problems. My brain will burst, and that would just be a mess. Wednesday night—I think I shall flex my procrastination muscle. I could go to Martin and practice my right to litter the earth with red solo cups or maybe I could go to that Hump night thing that I read about somewhere. Ha! “Hump Nights” always makes me think of Furgie. Maybe they will invite her and she can sing that song about her lady lumps; that would be hilarious. I would go. Martin smells funny, so I go to Worsham, in the new SLTC, to see what’s happening. There is some comedian. This new building is so shiny; maybe that’s why they have had more entertainers come for Hump Nights than last semester. Entertainers like shiny things. I go in not expecting much. Maybe I’ll stay for a minute but go back to Facebook stalking and eating wheat thins. I stay and surprisingly laugh, a lot. This guy is way funnier than I thought he would be. Before I know it, the show is over, the comedian says his final punch line, and I realize for just a moment, I’ve forgotten my school-related worries. I sigh and trek back to my dorm, but with a slight smile. Who wants to worry about Gothic Lit papers or calculus problems when you can listen to comedians talk about children who like raisins or jam out to an awesome new band you didn’t even know about? Another unproductive night in the life of a college student—but at least I have some new jokes in my arsenal… Left: Lead vocalist and guitar player for the Cold War Kids, Nathan Willett, performs for a crowd of students in the SLTC’s Nannie Worsham Hall.

coming a whole person isn’t an option at Hendrix- it is a graduation requirement. Nestled in the foothills of the Arkansas Ozark Mountains, Hendrix has been called the Harvard of the Southbut don’t tell students that- to them, the century old Methodist institution is home to exacting faculty, caring staff members, and timeless traditions that include birthday cake, pecans, and chicken strips. Hendrix is, as promotional material claims, demanding yet supportive. It is this environment that has cultivated the minds of six Rhodes Scholars, twenty-seven Watson Fellows, twenty-one Goldwater Scholars, two Truman Scholars, two Jack Kent Cooke Scholars, and a Marshall Scholar. As US News and World Report put it, “[Hendrix is] America’s number one up and coming liberal arts college.” And Hendrix loves the liberal arts. President J. Timothy Cloyd described it best, “We are a liberal arts college and that is a precious thing. Of the more than 3,000 higher education institutions in the United States, only 217 of them are liberal arts colleges. Of the 14 million students who go to college each year, only 250,000 of them come to liberal arts colleges. We are a precious thing indeed.” Hendrix offers an academically rigorous, intensely intellectual environment in which students are challenged to pursue excellence. At the same time, supportive peers and faculty encourage each other rather than competing against each other. But learning doesn’t stop in the classroom. The Hendrix Odyssey program has awarded over one million dollars to students and faculty for experiential learning projects around the world. Everything from the Role of Central American Agoutis in the Dispersal of Plants in Costa Rican Forests to the Literature and Image of Culture and the Environment in Northern New Mexico can be studied. The possibilities are endless, often leaving students to ask, “What is my Hendrix Odyssey?” So what makes Hendrix so special? Hendrix has a place for everyone. If you feel most alive when you’re trying to get to the bottom of things, if you’re the kind of person who loses track of time hashing over new (or age-old) ideas, and if you want to make a difference in the world, then you’ll be as happy to find Hendrix as Hendrix is to find you. -Taylor Kidd


NOTABLE FACULTY ACHIEVEMENTS

DR. ANDREA DUINA, an Assistant Professor of Biology was awarded a National Science Foundation grant to support his genetic research. Duina’s award totals $473,089. His research interests involve basic molecular mechanisms that regulate genes in living cells.

DR. TOM GOODWIN, the Elbert L. Fausett Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, and Julia Mobley, Odyssey Professor, was one of two professors nationally distributed who received the CUR Fellows Award. The award recognizes excellence in members who have developed nationally respected research programs involving undergraduate students. Dr. Goodwin’s area of expertise is synthetic organic chemistry, but has developed a specific research interest in chemical communication among elephants which led to an NSF-funded collaboration with a behavioral biologist and a biochemist. He has mentored the research work of approximately 120 undergraduate students over the course of 31 years at Hendrix.

in the words of...

a Hays Scholar

by Katie Rice ’10

The memories of Hays Weekend come back in quick, dull flashes. I don’t remember feeling anything as I walked into the room in D.W. Reynolds and sat down before two Hendrix faculty members and a student. It was the first time I had visited the Hendrix campus, and rather than taking a campus tour I was sitting before a panel of judges. In more than a dozen rooms across campus, other equally nervous and equally qualified high school seniors were simultaneously attempting to prove that their passion for learning, and for living, would be a positive force on the Hendrix campus. The grand prize, to be awarded to four of us, was a full-ride scholarship. So shaking in my high heels, I explained to Dr. Chappell and Dr. Bridges (whose identities I only discerned years later) my longtime devotion to student journalism. Four years later, the scholarship has had more than financial benefits for me – although without it I almost surely could not have attended Hendrix. Hays recipients also have access to an Odyssey-like pool

of money, which funded a project I titled “Abstinence-Only: Conversations on Sex in the South.” It allowed me to spend two weeks in the Deep South interviewing young women about sex, God, gender, and the South. I met bold, strong women who were carving out their sexual identities in oppressive small towns. And I met equally bold and strong women who used their fortitude to maintain their ideals of morality. The hourslong conversations inspired me, broke my heart, and helped me develop a more nuanced idea of the challenges that face young women across the country. I waited patiently through the silence as my peers found the words to discuss private things with a stranger, and as I sat and listened I also renewed my desires to be a journalist. Although I can barely recall the day that led to my Hendrix experience, I will never forget my four years here and the way they have retooled my beliefs, refined my values, and reinforced my sincerest goals.

There were two, two-day lab sessions in collaboration with the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of Faulkner County. Coordinated by Alex Holmes and Kelsie Holmes, this outreach program offered fun, interesting, and interactive experiments that bring basic scientific principles to life for the local middle school students of Conway, Arkansas. Students led the hands-on science camp as they guided children of grades 4-8 through exciting experiments.

In the spring of 2009 we started to plan the first Hendrix Triathlon. Ellie had participated in a team indoor triathlon and really enjoyed it; so she thought it would be something different that we could do at Hendrix. Activities like intramurals, 40 Days to Finals, and other athletic events draw a lot of Hendrix students and we thought something new would be fun. We decide to donate the proceeds to some sort about charity, but hadn’t decide which one until we read an article on the Hendrix website about Children’s Association for Maximum Potential (CAMP). CAMP has multiple ties to Hendrix including their director who is a Hendrix alumnus. CAMP is a program that provides weekend and summer camps for children with disabilities who cannot attend a regular summer camp. They provide one-to-one camper to counselor care and a variety of activities for participants. We received a lot of support from local businesses that made donations of food, money, gift bag items, and raffle prizes. We had about 40 participants including Hendrix students, staff, and other local residents. A large number of Hendrix students, and a few staff members, helped a great deal with set-up, timing, and cleanup. Overall the event was a lot of fun. It was great to see a variety of people get excited about the competition and have a great time. There were a lot of people who had never done a triathlon before so seeing them challenge themselves was really awesome. The team event was really great too. We had teams of Hendrix students, adults from Conway, and even a women and her two granddaughters! We’re so thankful for all of the support from our sponsors, participants, and volunteers. Hopefully the excitement of this triathlon will carry over for years to come! -Hannah Allee


As

a freshman, you enter college in one of two ways: you are scared and unsure if this is where you belong, or you are excited and ready to embrace your newfound freedom. Surprisingly, this is how you leave college as well. The main difference, though, is that as a senior you are truly on your own. The real world is at your fingertips and all you have to do is grab hold. Taking this step can be quite difficult for many graduates. However, as a graduate of Hendrix College, hesitation is not necessary. College, in general, changes everyone. Any change, whether negative or positive, can be viewed as a learning experience. The liberal arts curriculum of Hendrix College is a significant factor in how students change throughout their four years. Students are able to determine their true passion by picking and choosing (to a certain extent) their course load. By the time senior year rolls around, most students have a fairly good idea of what they want to do with their life. Plans may be tentative, but the fact that there is a plan at all indicates that Hendrix has fulfilled its purpose. Students are endowed with the skills and knowledge necessary for living an efficacious life after college. As a senior of Hendrix College, reflecting on the past four years elicits a multitude of feelings that span the entire emotional spectrum. The sentiments that are most prominent, though, are relief and gratification. The many hours of immense study and dedication are finally approaching fruition. Walking the path toward the coveted diploma is just around the corner. Knowing that a simple piece of paper illustrates four years of growth and achievement is a captivating thought. With the diploma in hand, one becomes a Hendrix College graduate. The real world awaits‌ -Ashley Cappiello ’10

My favorite Hendrix memory spans my entire time in college. My freshmen year during spring break a bunch of guys and I decided to play a game around campus called fungo golf. Fungo golf is a game that has the exact principles of regular golf, but instead of a club and a golf ball, we use a fungo bat and a tennis ball. Since most everyone had left campus for a week, Dave Keine, Eric Mathis, Kirk

Joseph Hayden

I remember the time that Hillel was making latkes in the new SLTC kitchen and set off the fire alarm. The alarm sounded for probably 15 minutes across the entire building, but we made new friends with Jan, the public safety officer, who asked us a lot of questions about Jewish food and Jewish identity. Our latkes were only slightly burnt, but we had an awesome time anyway.

Kimery, David Hagan, and I would all soak up the sun and play a round of fungo golf. One of the best parts about the game is making up challenging holes to play and writing funny names on the tennis balls to identify which ball is which.


Dave Keine Joseph Byram

My favorite memories over the past four years are all the random dance parties that take place on campus. Including the major school dances, the library rave during finals, the club hosted parties, and the times that my friends would put on music and dance at random places. I loved the chances to learn how to dance and spend time with friends without worrying about responsibilities.

Senior year, a bunch of us stayed at Hendrix for Fall Break. Going around town we found sweet three-piece suits at Salvation Army. We then proceeded to walk to Michelangelo’s rooftop bar, smoking pipes, singing Rat Pack songs in our suits with ladies on our arms.We were “The Men About Town”

Nicole Smith

My favourite memory at Hendrix would be the day that I joined Sword Club my freshman year. I had no idea how much fun it would be to swing “swords” made of p.v.c. pipe, foam, and duct tape, or that I excell at it. It is

my favourite memory because it was the day that I met a lot of my friends, whom I love and trust to this day. Also, Sword Club has allowed me to make more friends over the years here at Hendrix.

Residential Life


As

a residential college, Hendrix Residence Life plays a large role in impacting the lives of students. Residence Life helps to facilitate a smooth transition from home life to the independence of college living. Most first year students live within the traditional residence halls, while upperclassmen live in the Houses, apartment complexes and traditional halls. Because the majority of students live on campus, the college has a very communal feel. Resident Assistants and Hall Councils create fun, social, and intellectually engaging events that help to facilitate growth in the Hendrix community. Residence Life strives to build camaraderie amongst floor mates, hall mates, and neighbors through a variety of programs. These programs occur throughout the year and are meant to enrich the growth of the student as a whole person, specifically targeting different dimensions of the individual such as emotional, intellectual, and physical. From the time first year students arrive on campus, the RAs work to help these bonds develop. The Resident Assistants help residents with issues that arise such as roommate conflicts and homesickness. They also help students through more difficult issues and introduce them to the colleges many services such as the Chaplain and Counseling Services. Residence Life is meant to not only bring the students together in a community, but to help students grow into independent individuals. -Lauren Daily

the

prank war

“Born out of conversation in the lobby of the largest residence hall, unofficially recognized Couch Prank Week was an effort to have fun and build community ties,” resident and lobby regular Matthew Tillett said. “The rules were simple; nothing could be damaged or broken and no bodily harm could befall the pranks’ victim,” Tillett explains. A group of students filled the atrium on the back porch with balloons, another wrapped a student’s bed in Saran Wrap, and another transported a student’s entire room to the lobby, recreated identically to the setup in his room. Some students removed all of the Nick Rodruguez’s left shoes from his closet.

The aftermath of a prank leaves the victim’s room oddly organized. The students that pulled the prank of replicating a fellow resident’s room returned his belongings to the right room.

William Haden-Chomphosy and Lance Riley do not seem to be having too much trouble moving through the balloon-filled atrium. “Some fools felt they couldn’t wait for April 1st,” Haden-Chomphosy said. Photos of the Prank

War were provided by Erik Urban, a resident of Couch.

“This impromptu prank war occurred both in the fall and spring semesters,” Tillett informs us. “The pranks were tasteful and generally wellliked. People had fun and were driven to be creative in their methods. All in all, those two weeks were very entertaining.”

Social Networks of a Couchie Kevin Theall has nothing but praises for the dorm where he has spent his first year on Campus. Though his initial reasoning behind choosing Couch was for the co-ed environment, Theall said he has come to discover even better reasons. “It’s a diverse atmosphere that the other dorms don’t offer....Couch maintains it’s own balance between partying and having ‘sober fun,’” Theall said. Couch held the more wellknown activities such as “Rage Against the Deli,” a popular dinner service on Saturdays and threw the ever-wild “Jungle Boogie” as an after party for Miss Hendrix. While parties do occur Theall explained that the ‘sober fun’ was equally as entertaining. “We also have movie nights, game nights, jam sessions, prank weeks, and spontaneous events like ‘Couch Bowling’

and constructing a giant obstacle course in the lobby,” Theall said. With a year’s experience of life as a Couchie under his belt, Theall imparted wisdom to future Couchies. “Spend time getting to know the residents of Couch, so that you don’t end up doing the same thing every weekend. Many students at this school fall into the cycle of Martin Party, Front Street Party, Mills Party, Brick House Party.”

To avoid this common trap, Theall suggested to upcoming classes, as well as the current student body, to broaden their networks. “If you know the right people in Couch, or anywhere, you can find something different and fun to do every weekend,” Theall said.

Galloway’s Inner-Glow A Galloway girl for two years and a Resident Assistant for one, Hoai Trang Nguyen looks upon her experience in the “elegant ladies” hall as a warm introduction to not only college life, but also to the United States. “Before coming to the U.S., I thought American life was crazy with parties and loud drunk people. You could hardly have a quiet place to study except for the library,” Nguyen said. The relaxed atmosphere of Galloway, especially in the lobby area, came as a surprise. The general coziness of the space, the girls’ kindness and respectful quietness add to the attractiveness of the lobby for studying and socializing. However, the dorm is not always so studious. The girls do bring liveliness to campus. “For me, the great dorm memory would be the Lunar New Year,” Trang reminisces. “On that day, Galloway was so crowded with students and beautiful with decorations. We had a lot of fun.” Trang’s pleasant encounter with dorm life has changed her mind about the American lifestyle, she professes. “In general, I think Galloway contributes to Hendrix a nice, quiet, warm and safe environment,” she said.

Freshman Josephine Reece made an adjustment not only from high school to college, but also from the northern climate of Minnesota to the sweltering heat of Arkansas’ August. “I love St. Paul. Besides the snow, I probably miss the possibilities of a big city the most.” Reece said. “It’s all the unique little restaurants and museums and theaters that just aren’t available in Conway, for sure and even Little Rock, to an extent. I also miss getting to make fun of the Scandinavian culture.” The biggest differences she has found are in the things native Arkansans take for granted, such as knowing certain landmarks, food chains, or songs. “It’s when someone makes a reference and everyone is surprised that I need it explained. It’s then that I really notice that our backgrounds aren’t entirely in common.” Her overall attitude towards the transition is marked with the gratefulness for the opportunity to have a variety of experiences within her own country. “It’s wonderful to travel abroad, but I feel like lots of people miss out on the diversity of the United States just because they’re uninterested or prejudiced. Everything that I’ve seen so far has only made me happier with my choice.”

Southside Rush

Hardin boys live with the stereotype of being quiet and studious when they’re not playing video games. However during Faux Rush week, Hardin boys proved the stereotype wrong by placing in the Lip Sync competition with both of their acts. Joshua Hooper-Shaffer and David Chinchilla placed third singing, or rather, not singing “Anyone Else But You” by the Moldy Peaches. The next act, which placed first, consisting of Colin Hoy, Cody Elozory, Alex Scholler, Matt Adams, Kyle Bradbury, Brandon Stegall and others, performed a song from a popular skit featured on Saturday Night Live, the title of which includes words not allowed in the yearbook. The Hardin Boys sent their Hall Council Vice President, David Chinchilla, to represent them in the Jalapeno-Eating Contest. Though the contestant had the best odds, the competition turned sour. “I ate the peppers because I love and repped my dorm, but what I thought was a race of speed, was actually one of edurance. I thought I was eating one... wrong,” Chinchilla said. “I would most definitely do it again but I’d have to train.” Geoff Lomax Jakob Lorsbach Zora Joseph McBride Brennan McGinn

MARTIN: LET’S BREAK IT

DO

WN

Eric Lew’s definition of the typical Martin resident is someone who not only spends a lot of time hanging around the first floor of Martin, but also someone who understands the importance of community. Lew explains that not only are there Martin Men, but also Martin women. They understand that school is a priority, while at the same time, “it is still important to have fun and provide a venue of entertainment to everyone who is near or visiting the Hendrix Campus,” Lew said. These women embody the Martin spirit as much as its residents.

Eric Lew

When asked for advice on how to live in Martin Hall, Lew suggested that residents be mindful of the noise and messiness that comes with living below the third floor. “Residents should always wear their shoes, unless in their own room,” Lew said.

For some Martin residents, such as Zach Doelger, Martin goes above and beyond just providing living space. “You become part of something special and unique, a place steeped in tradition, a place where strong bonds are formed based on intangible principles,” Doelger said. This makes Martin the perfect environment for spawning many large and extravagant parties. After giving an extensive list of Martin’s creatively themed parties, Doelger’s favoritism falls upon 80’s Night. “It’s the first themed party of the year and it lets you step out of your shell, dress up, meet new people, and just let loose,” Doelger said.

The freedom of Martin residents to let loose offers an incomparable experience of unity and friendship. “It is without a doubt a place where students of all races, creeds, genders, and ideologies can come together in solidarity,” Doelger proudly states, “it is a place that embodies a oneness transcending culture, economy, and overlooking petty disagreements and selfishness.”


Pancakes Miles High

Calling All Dance Callers: Favorite Martin Parties

On Wednesday April 21st, the Martin Hall RAs cooked a massive amont of pancakes to feed a line of hungry students. The key to skipping the line was asking the willing-to-please chefs for special orders. One student, an obvious Jack Johnson fan, brought a banana to “pretend that it’s the weekend!” Other students chose two plain pancakes or one chocolate chip pancake for their plates. “Try the chocolate chips, they’re Ghiirradelli -- only the best for Martin Hall. Disregard the Great Value syrup,” RA and chef Gabe Breshears said. After waiting in line, some students were picky enough to wait for “the perfect pancake.” Others however, were less picky. “They’re free!” visiting Hardin resident, Matt Adams, said in response to being asked what his favorite thing about the pancakes were.

Ladies of Raney Hall Ellie Casalman of Fort Smith was attracted to Raney for its reputation of being pretty calm and quiet. Though the dorm meets those initial expectations, she has enjoyed the friendlier aspect of dorm life. “I’ve loved getting to know all of the girls that live around me. I was a member of ...Hall Council my freshman year and thought it would be fun to do it again,” Casalman said.

Alice Floros “The nights before theme parties hold a special place in my little heart. A few zany gals would zip down the halls without stopping for breath, anxiously showing off their neon/80s/90s/elf/Halloween looks to everyone... If only we could dress to theme every day.”

Kim Pollard My most cherished memory in Raney is from the first semester of this year, when all of the old Raney girls came over and we watched the freshman boys do their Shirttails teasers. It was a lot of fun to have all of the girls over, and it reminded me of freshman year when we all did Shirttails ourselves.

As president of the council, Casalman humbly describes her role as officiator over meetings. “It was important to me to let all the members... have an equal role in planning events and brainstorming ideas,” she stated. By getting involved, Casalman has found the social side of Raney. “I loved getting to spend time with the girls. We always had fun and joked around with each other during the meetings which made me feel more comfortable leading them.” The general quietness, however, has its advantages as well. Casalman commented, “You can go out to parties on the weekends knowing that you have a quiet, clean dorm to return to.”

Veasey Hall The year of the

champions

Veasey girls get up close and personal with the Martin boys during their Shirttails Serenade. Veasey visited other dorms on campus during Shirttails teasers.

Veasey Hall started the year off great with another Shirttails victory for the books. This set the momentum for a fantastic year of fun and excitement, which continued with a repeat performance of the Shirttails dance at Moonlight Harvest. Moonlight Harvest, though freezing, provided a great communal social event for the ladies of Veasey Hall. Other events, such as the Great Condom Challenge during Faux Rush Week, and Luau in the spring, created memories to last a lifetime. At any given time these girls could be seen cooking in the Veasey kitchen, hanging out on Veasey Beach, or studying in Veasey lobby. Academically and socially this year’s residents truly expanded the Veasey Hall reputation. -Claire Hyatt

The Vegas-themed sign welcomed incoming freshmen on Move-In Day. The Veasey Vegas sign mysteriously disappeared one evening and was said to have traveled around camups via an anonymous kidnapper. With the guidance of comedian Loni Love, Veasey girls Celia Ketcham and Katie Michaud compete over Hardin boy Matt Adams, trying out their best pick-up lines. The final stage of the competition, the dance-off, was judged by the audience. “Loni told me to stop before I hurt myself,” Michaud said.

The Veasey Appeal For Sarah Ghidina of St. Louis, her initial visit to the campus positively impacted her decision of living arrangements once accepted. “I heard [Veasey] was the more freshman-friendly dorm, more social and fun,” she said. “It was presented that way, so I came as a freshman and stayed as a sophomore.” When asked to characterize the dorm’s appeal, Ghidina explained the well-established concept of ‘Veasey pride’: “There’s a lot of spirit and camaraderie. It’s a close-knit group of girls that are friends and see each other around campus.” The continued support of resident assistants from

freshman through sophomore year assisted in the transition to college life. “We got really close. The RAs make an effort to get involved, and really embraced the Veasey spirit, too, by encouraging freshman.” The lively, social dorm offers to the college an element of fun and its students more opportunities to make friends. “Veasey is socially involved in athletics, clubs, groups, etc. It brings a community feeling because it connects together all of those involved. Our dorm is well-represented around campus, and the campus is well-represented in our dorm,” said Ghidina.

Aloha! Students enjoy the miraculously clear spring weather after having to reschedule and relocate. The picnic-style Luau was a huge hit with no leftovers!

“Veasey Luau went way better than expected,” said hall council member Ashley Scorsone. Because the Luau had to be moved from Saturday to Sunday due to inclement weather, there was worry that the crowd would be thin. “Much to Hall Council’s surprise, we ended up running out of food, which was awesome since we had a ton of food from Whole Hog BBQ,” said Scorsone

Margaret Schrier Ashley Scorsone Morgan Scott

The effects of bad weather seem to be a trend; there was not a Veasey Luau last year, Scorsone told us, because it was rained out. Traditionally Veasey Luau is in the brick pit, set up like most brick pit parties. However, the brick pit was unavailable because events cannot be held in the brick pit on alumni weekend. “Learning this we went to plan B,” added Scorsone. Luau was to become a BBQ on the Veasey Beach. “This was the first time, at least to my knowledge, that Luau was a BBQ.”

Th

e faculty members of the college are an integral part of what makes students’ academic journeys truly unique experiences. They do many things: lead undergraduate research projects, advise students, identify the internal anatomy of starfish, and even judge the boisterous Miss Hendrix drag show. As a sophomore, I have been fortunate to have many great professors thus far. During my freshman year, I took a modern literature course with Dr. Chappell, a Hendrix alumnus and distinguished professor of many years. He would frequently enthrall the class with random stories of the famous people he has met on the campus throughout the years, his time as a student, and anecdotal trivia that would perhaps only be useful if I were on Jeopardy. I have taken both Organic Chemistry I & II with the humorous Dr. Goodwin, a proud elephant pheromone researcher and published green chemistry enthusiast. His passion for carbon and its many forms shines through in his teachings. The class was certainly a challenge in itself, but I survived. Dr. Haggard, another tenured professor with immense knowledge in the progressive field of Genetics, always made the subject entertaining at eight o’clock in the morning. These are only a few examples of the extraordinary faculty that we as students share our campus with. They continue to devote their time and care to ensure we reach our full potential, fulfill our goals and live our dreams. -Charis Lorenz

The 2009-2010 Hendrix baseball team is the stuff legends are made of. After riding on the heels of one of the winningest years in the team’s dismal history, Hendrix had some critics to appease and a new reputation to uphold. The team however did not let the loss of the best hitter in Hendrix baseball history and the rubber arm of Wheeler Gnat, nor their weighty fingers from the massive championship ring slow them down. With a strong senior class to keep the team moving forward, Hendrix continually fought day in and day out to win games and be a force on the field. In a way, this team was even better than last year’s because they were able to continually strive as a team, as brothers, even with unnecessary animosity from the inside. As pole after pole, and mile after miserable punishment mile passed, the team’s camaraderie grew stronger. The 18-18 record for the warriors does not do justice to the heart that was shown every game by these boys. Next year, Hendrix baseball will be a force to be reckoned with, and if anyone questions the heart, the will, the fight of this team, well then you don’t know what heart is. -Matt Gaglio

The thing I will always remember about this season is how well we all got along. With so many road trips, it would be very easy for us to get on each other’s nerves, but we always managed to turn the idle time on the bus into an enjoyable experience. One of the most unique aspects of playing on the basketball team is that we spend the majority of our Christmas break on campus. Being the only students on campus for three weeks can get pretty boring when Conway doesn’t exactly offer a plethora of options to keep us busy. My freshman year we started doing a decathlon where we compete in ten random events around campus, such as Dodgeball, Ping-Pong, and a Pizza Eating challenge at Cici’s. I know that when I look back on my time as a member of the basketball team I won’t remember how many games we won or how many points anyone scored, but I will remember the guys I played with. -Cal Rose

Women’s Basketball Heart. Will. Fight. Sportsmanship. Teamwork. Determination. Strength. Skill. Effort. Sacrifice. Love. Endurance.

The 2009-2010 women’s basketball season was a new beginning for all 14 players and both coaches. Thad McCracken, who was previously the men’s basketball assistant coach, was hired in the spring of 2009. Krista Goss, former player and Hendrix 2009 graduate, was hired during the summer of 2009. McCracken had 13 girls returning and 1 incoming freshman: 3 seniors, 1 junior, and 9 sophomores ready for action. Every girl returning knew this was a going to be an amazing and fun season. That it was! The Warriors started out strong winning their first 4 games. Their first loss came on the road to Colorado College. McCracken was unable to travel with the team that weekend due to a new addition to his family; his first child and son Kaden Keith. The Warriors pushed through and ended up only losing 5 games the entire season. This team maintained first place in the West Division of the SCAC the whole season. Before entering the conference tournament, they were 12-3 in conference play and 19-4 overall. This was the best record the 3 seniors had ever accomplished in their careers while playing at Hendrix. Hendrix Women’s basketball made it past the first round of the conference tournament for the first time in maybe 10 years. Losing in the second round was disappointing, but the seniors were very appreciative of everything Coach McCracken did for the team and for the program during their last year of basketball. The returners were sad to see the seniors go, but are already back in the gym rebuilding for next season. Thad McCracken and Krista Goss brought back the love and the passion for the game of basketball, that the 13 returns had lost, in the years past.

So playing at the ‘Drix is pretty sweet. The lax bro waketh early to coordinate his pastels and pinnies. They ride through the ensuing day on boat shoes or turf dawgs with mid calves – swoosh on top of coarse. These radical chariots take them to class, the necessary evil in the lax bro lifestyle, but, hey, the ladies love a Renaissance laxer. After polishing their head brains, they like to polish their spoons so that they can see their reflection. After, they must dine with the rest of our Hendrix community: the fans who erupt with applause when the twine snappeth. After enduring their protein rich meals, they head out to the field where their one constant at school lies: the ping of the pipes. With minimal stretching and optimal tilt, their day truly begins. Chaying can be seen across the turf as the ‘Drix boys tune their twigs, eyeing their first win in the (hopefully) near future. Without support of the Hendrix brommunity, difficult road trips and uphill battles are taken in stride. Each day more and more ducks are ripped. Once the ducks are depleted the boys reach for the top shelf, where the cheddar resides, of course. After the daily grind, the guys hit the showers, whip some towels, and head to Bailey for a late night lib. sesh and some GaGa. To end it all, it’s late-night t-bell, rinse, and repeat. Such is the life of the ‘Drix lax bro. -JD Recobs, Daniel Abernathy. and Tym Wojcik

During October the volleyball team raised money for the Side-Out Foundation’s Dig Pink Rally. This organization is fighting the war against breast cancer by supporting health care professionals in their pursuit of practical solutions for women and men with this dreaded disease ,thus enabling those affected, to regain control of their lives and live them to the fullest. The team contacted Conway businesses and asked for donations in the form of gift cards and coupons. Each team member volunteered to spend at least two hours on the Sunporch selling raffle tickets. Each raffle ticket represented a chance to win one of the donated prizes. A few lucky students won the chance to serve a volleyball and hit a $100 bill placed on the court during a home tournament. Between parent donations, the raffle, and concession stand donations, the team was able to raise $1,500 for the Side-Out Foundation. On two separate occasions during October, the team wore pink jerseys to show their support for breast cancer awareness. Being able to raise money for such a worthy organization was very rewarding and the generosity and support we received from both Hendrix and Conway was remarkable! -Leah Groat

Swimming is a different kind of team sport. You step on that block, dive into the water, everything goes silent, and you feel completely alone. When you come up, all you can hear is the rush of water moving past and what seems like a distant echo of cheering. Racing towards the wall, you notice that there is no echo. People are cheering now. They are standing at the end of your lane or at the edge of the pool encouraging you to go faster. As you turn on the wall, your teammates’ yelling increases; telling you to finish. We swim for ourselves and for our teammates. We are bonded together by our comical banter towards a coach we call Old Man Winter. We are linked by three weeks of pain in the winter where it seems like our coaches just pour it on. We are attached through injury, yet fashioned through fun and laughter. We are a family. We are the Hendrix College Swimming and Diving team, and we wouldn’t change a thing. -Brett Carr

The score is a tied at a set all. You are down 4-5 in the third set and you must win your individual match for your team to win. It is your serve and your shoulder is tired from having already played a doubles match. There are no closers. There is no resting on the bench. There is no way for anyone to help you. You are alone. But, this is what tennis players do. We focus on the task at hand and perform. To win, a player must use every aspect of their game. There are no positions; every player must be able to hit every shot. There are no excuses; every player is responsible for their mistakes. While the physical conditioning and skill set required to be a tennis player demand dedicated practice, the key to any tennis player’s success is mental toughness. With it, a tennis player can analyze an opponent, correct flaws of their own mid-match and, most importantly, focus on the task at hand. The score is tied at a set all. You are down 4-5 in the third and you must win your match. These moments define being a tennis player. -Kent Dunson

The 2009-2010 season was a very successful one for the Flying Squirrels and Sugar Gliders. The men and women’s teams both saw a large influx of freshmen, so many that the men split into two separate teams at many tournaments. The team traveled to tournaments all over the South, from Houston, to Baton Rouge, all the way to Brunswick, Georgia. The season was not only a success in terms of turnout. The Flying Squirrels routinely defeated many larger schools; Oklahoma State and Ole Miss were just a couple that fell victim to the Squirrels attack. At Sectionals in St. Louis they finished 11th out of 20, their highest finish in five years. The Sugar Gliders also had a successful year; they defeated their main rival, Harding University in their final match. Over spring break the team played in the High Tide co-ed tournament in Georgia and won their bracket, defeating Vassar, Fordham, and Denison en route to victory. -Nathan Jesson

The men’s soccer set a new standard of excellence this season with a record of 9-8-2, (4-4-2 conference) finishing in sixth place in conference play. The Warriors, headed by second-year head coach Doug Mello, had high expectations for the season and achieved many of their goals. For the first time since 1993, the Warriors went over .500 overall. The men’s soccer team also set the record for Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference wins for the program since joining the conference in 1992. Some highlights of the season included wins over arch-rival Rhodes and SCAC powerhouse DePauw, whom the men’s soccer team had never defeated. The Senior Day win over Colorado College sent off the men’s soccer team’s seven seniors in style, and marked Coach Mello’s 400th career win in Division III play, ranking him amongst the elite coaches in college soccer. For those seven seniors – Matt Blair, Will Brown, Kent Coombs, Thatcher Crawford, Braden Jones, Jon Moore, and Thomas Robins – the season was especially sweet. The seniors depart the program having made a significant contribution to the burgeoning success in the men’s soccer program. All-Conference honors were awarded to sophomores Duncan Keegan and Ian Evans. A successful season for the Warriors does not mean the hard work is yet done, as Men’s Soccer hopes to continue to improve next season and will strive to compete in the upper echelons of conference play, a goal now attainable. -Thomas Robins

They finished 4-5 in conference with 10 shutouts by an aggressive defense and an All-Conference goal keeper, sophomore Allison Mosley. When asked what the best thing about the season was, senior captain Abby Blaney said that “seeing the overall program and the team’s attitude change for the better and in such a short period of time was great. It was the best season we have had since I have been here and it was largely due to passion of the players.” -Amilia Wildenborg

While the win/loss column did not show the outcome the Warrior softball team had hoped for at the beginning of the season, this young team exhibited things toward the end of the season that has left players and coaches itching to get started next fall. After opening the season 0-4, the Warrior squad bounced back in a big way, going 14-4 over the next 18 games. However, the tough SCAC schedule provided the Warriors with a big challenge and a string of 11 conference losses before closing out the regular season with a victory over Millsaps College. While the Warriors fell short of their goal of making the 2010 SCAC Softball Championships, the Warriors were able to end the year on a promising note, playing some high-caliber softball. The Warriors faced a heavy road schedule this year; while road trips lead to tougher games on the diamond, with that comes opportunities to grow closer as a team. The Warriors only graduated one senior and will return all 9 starters next year. Even though the Warriors were not as successful on the diamond as possible, the team was able to share fond memories and strengthen relationships that helped mature a young team into a team full of experience that is itching to start practicing once again. -Christina Byler

“Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.” –Henry Ford

Sweat, fervor, a trance. We sit in the locker room before our first game. Jittery, butterflies in our stomachs, prepared to play. Filling the field with intensity we push for each other, we play for each other, and we beat Sewanee 2-0 together. As we huddle, you can feel the fire and excitement running through out veins. Inspired by Stomp the Yard, we cheer loudly, with smiles upon our faces, “It’s not about you, it’s not about me, it’s about the team!” Knowing our true potential was a mental challenge presented to our team. The goal for this season was to be competitive in every game. Not only did we succeed, but we realized through hard work and frustration that when we play together, we can achieve greatness. Seeded fourth in the conference championships for the first time in Hendrix history, we set a new goal for ourselves: finish together in 70 minutes with trust, confidence, and one-hundred percent effort. Looking forward we are ready for another season, with vigor and efficiency we will continue working together to attain our goals. -Lauren Thorburg

One of the best things about attending Hendrix has been the oppurtunity to be a part of theGolf Team. Some of my best Hendrix memories have been on Golf trips with Coach Jennifer McCracken and player Emily Mitchell and their amazing ability to quote movies. Through the yearsb the golf team has provided me with an escape from reality, even if just for a few days at a time. It has also given me time to enjoy the outdoors and the spirit of competition. My teammates have become life long friends, the kind of friends you can count on. Being a member of a team has helped make my Hendrix experience the most wonderful time of my life and has given me unforgettable memories. -Jordan Hampton

Heat beating rapidly, lunges gasping for air, soul determined to go faster. Run. Jump. Throw. Beyond anyone’s imagination. Every step, every motion, every bead of sweat goes to the common goal—to be as good I can be. The Track and Field Team has a vast amount of depth and diversity: our determination carries us to the next level. Each event—throwing, sprinting, jumping, pole vaulting, middle distance, distance, and steeple chase—all give our team the excitement to unite. Each athlete’s passion is brought on the field/track and carried to the bus rides home. I remember driving back from Rhodes College, exhausted from waking up at 4:30 am. Yet, I could not help but be excited and awake with my whole team, wired after the meet. Whether an individual is a sprint or a throw, a distance runner or a pole vaulter, we are all a family: a force to be reckoned with. We should be remembered as the team with the heart, the lunges, and the soul. -Kelly Rappé

I never expected to fall in love. That is, when I joined the Hendrix College dance team, I did not think we would create the strong bonds of friendship and support that developed. Being a member of the Hendrix dance team, like being a member of any college team, is a rigorous commitment that requires dedication from all parties. From the practices to the performances, to the social events, we rely on each other to be there and make the experience all the more joyous. What few people realize is that in order to look as sparkly and glamorous as we do, we have work for it. Every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday evening, we practice. It is in these magical practices, that we grind out dance routines, assemble technique, and coordinate some snazzy outfits. There are nights in the weight room, nights in the dance studio, and as of recent, nights on the field where we work until the routine is perfect. Through all the work involved, there is never a question of dedication; we know what we are there for. We know we are there for the team. We know we are there for the family. -Todd Richard

Coming Out

Again Again

“You bring your knees in tight, But it’s the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane Let’s do the time warp again!” Unity members performed the Time Warp dance at their showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show on Halloween night.

During the 2008-09 school year, three students, Katy Allison, Daniel Williams, and Logan Leatherman, met with Director of Student Activities, Tonya Hale, with the hopes of reviving a particular club on campus. The three wanted to resurrect Unity, a club for gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgenders and queers they hoped to shift the general focus from protesting, campaigning, and political action to simply emphasizing a sense of community on the campus. There needed to be a safe place where GLBTQs could come together and talk, laugh, share stories and find strength in one another. Unity kicked off with Coming Out Week – an ironic play on words to the reinstallment of the club itself and the phrase commonly associated with one publicly declaring their sexual orientation. The club hosted the Kinsey Sicks, a comedic drag group, and Ellis, a noted lesbian singer-songwriter. On Halloween night, the club showed the Rocky Horror Picture Show, a rock musical movie. During the showing,Unity members dressed up as the characters from the movie. Some even performed the infamous Time Warp. Unity even had a Valentine’s day surprise for everyone – personalized Condom and Dental Dam grams for that special someone.


Muggle Madness

If you look out on campus, one can guarantee you will find no dragons, large daunting castles, mythical creatures, owls, Potions and Defense Against the Dark Arts classes, or even a boy with glasses and a very peculiar scar on his forehead. You will however, find a bunch of Muggle-borns running around with brooms between their legs, wishing they could fly while playing a simple, modified version of Quidditch, the famed game that plays a prominent role in the Harry Potter series. Quidditch is a fictional sport developed by author J. K. Rowling for the Harry Potter book series and is described as an extremely rough, but very popular semi-contact sport played by wizards and witches around the world. In the United States, there are currently teams from more than 200 colleges affiliated with the Intercollegiate Quidditch Association (IQA) and play in international tournaments together around the world.

Students started a club of their own here on campus, founded by freshman Felicia Walker with the hopes of the club someday becoming a member of the IQA. With a following similar to that of Ultimate Frisbee, Walker hopes the “club sport� will pick up quickly with all the Harry Potter faithfuls at the school. The new club-sport fits in perfectly with the other outrageous clubs present on campus. After all, it is just a bunch of HP die-hards running around with brooms in hand and magic in their hearts. 1 7 0

Mandi Taylor scores ten points for her team as she throws the quaffle through the goal posts past the keeper as Drucilla Shultz looks on. Upon catching the quaffle a player may take only three steps before he or she must pass off the quaffle to another player.


Three goal posts, fashioned by the dedicated members of the Muggle Quidditch team, are made from hula hoops, broomsticks and laundry baskets. The keepers guard the goal posts with brooms to prevent the other team from throwing the quaffle through the posts in order to score.

A team of muggle quidditch players stand ready for the game with their brooms at their side. According to the official rules of muggle quidditch, a player must “ride” their brooms between their legs the entire time while playing. To drop the broom is eqivalent of falling off the broom and thus eliminated from the game.

“ I don’t play any other sports, but this one interests me because you don’t have to be really athletic to play. Also, everyone on the team has at least a passing interest in Harry Potter, so we have something in common.” Muggle Sophomore, Mandi Taylor

The Trouba. Th

e 2010 Troubadour theme “elements� focuses on the most basic building blocks that make up Hendrix College. The book is divided into seven sections: Academics, Faculty, Organizations, Residential Life, Seniors, Sports, and Social. These sections highlight the people, places, events, and objects that make up the Hendrix experience. The main visual elements throughout the book are squares and the periodic table. The book was created on an iMac using Adobe CS4 software. The faculty advisor was Dr. Alice Hines. All copy was written by staffers unless otherwise stated in a by-line. Photographs were provided by staff photographers unless otherwise

noted on the spread. The cover was designed by Courtney Johnson with the assistance of Bruce Layman and Walsworth. Body copy is Garamond 12 pt. Captions are Helvetica 9 pt. Headlines and decorative typography vary. The size 9 yearbook is 176 pages and 750 copes were printed by Walsworth Publishing Company. Our wonderfully helpful yearbook representative was Tod Traughber and our customer service representative was Jill Fowler. The Troubadour is funded through the Student Senate and books are handed out to students for free on a first-come, first-serve basis.
