College can be a total experience. Without downgrading the academic experience it would seem safe to say that a large part of that experience is realized outside the classroom. The experience of being on a college campus is something that has altered nearly all of us; all, that is, who have chosen to spend their years here by becoming involved to some degree. We should, by now, have a storehouse of vivid memories; some are depicted on this page, and others are scattered throughout this volume. They should serve always to re-kindle a lifetime supply of memories. .
A campus is not merely a conglomeration of buildings, textbooks and forms filed in triplicate. It is people, who individual lives interlock for a few hours each day and give the campus its living, breathing soul. A crowd gathered on the grass, a snowball fight, a quick smoke and a wierd pair of glasses make steel and stone come alive.

O FFICE O F TH E PRES IDENT
To the Class of 175: It is with tremendous pride and enthusiasm that I extend a brief personal note to the graduating Class of 175. It is also a very special note, for your graduation represents my first opportunity, as the new President of Cuyahoga Community College, to experience the transition of a graduating cl ass into the growing r anks of Tri-C alums. Since I can only have this experience once, I shall forever savor its great significance. I hope that this experience is or will, in time , prove to be as rewarding to you as it is to me. Gr aduation is not an end or a beginning , but rather encompasses both. It is the end of an educational and social experience and the beginning of another phase of your life. Whether you are pursuing fu r ther educational plans, entering a rewarding ca r eer or extending your newly acquired sk ills and talents to your families and community, you are embarking on a journey which I trust will prove to be a lasting, positive experience. I can only share with yriu my great satisfaction that Cuyahoga Community Col lege played a part toward the beginning of your new experience. It is a fact that Tri-C has experienced great growth since its inception in 1963. I know that you have been a part of that growth and that by vir tue of that, you also have grown. This yearbook in your hands is proof of t hat and I hope it will serve as a constant reminder of many pleasant, pro ductive and worthwhile hours at Tri-C. Bes t wishes for success and happiness in all of your future endeavors! Sincerely,
R-~.~ No I en M. EI I i son Pre sident
To the Graduates: The road to graduation is seldom easy. Many of you have overcome multiple hazards changes in jobs and hours, changes in family situation, problems of money. These concerns have often seemed to overshadow those of classroom and grades. The achievement of graduation should be recognized as more meaningful for you than for the 1975 class of most colleges and universities. With this in mind, I congratulate you on behalf of the administration, faculty, and staff of the Campus. Yours, David Stevenson President, Metropolitan Campus Cuyahoga Community College

Rec nizing that a variety of students call for a variety of approaches a programs, counselors sought to improve relationships with faculty a friends, to improve interpersonal communications, and to clarify a resolve personal concerns, goals and plans. Reaching out to students in classroom buildings was in evidence several ways. First, counselors, in cooperation with individual facu members, made classroom presentations on topics such as group dyna

BOOKSTORE Service to the academic community is the prime goal of the bookstore. They are in constant pursuit of new ideas and methods to improve their service to the students, faculty, and staff of our college. Some of the more outstanding recent additions have been expanded casual reading paperbacks, expanded stock in art, engineering and photo supplies, and increased service in available used books for student purchase at a 25% savings to stretch the textbook dollar. Our award winning bookstore is proud to share with you the great respect it enjoys with many other bookstores in the state and nation.

The Early C~ildhood Learning ter is many things; from a Human Cen C. R lations Laboratory to a ommuruty Reesource. One of the basic goals of th Early Childhood Learning is to r~vide an environment for children Pf student-parents that promotes edu~tional, emotional and social development.
In addition, it is a means by which parents can be involved in decisions that affect the lives of their children. Parents' intellectual growth is supported by other parents and the staff and new awareness is gained about relevant issues affecting day care. As a resource to the college it is par excellent. Students from various departments do placement work here. Some departments give presentations to the children. Students from Dietary Tech, Dental Assistance and the Speech Department are but a few who use the Early Childhood Learning Center in this mmner. In the community at large, Early Childhood Learning Center's worth is felt. Trainees from The Society for the Blind have done visual screening. Center staff members have prepared and presented workshop materials on the development of campus child care. Past parents have taken skills learned into their communities. Early Childhood Learning Center makes good things happen to "small packages" as it offers children comprehensive growth and development opportunities and serves as a unique resource to parents, students and the community.

CAMPUS MINISTRIES The presence of Newman (Roman Catholic), Hillel (Jewish). University Christian Movement (Protestant), and Dar-UI-Islam (Moslem) ministries on campus provide a number of services such as counseling, teaching and other programming for students, faculty and staff. The search for truth in the academic setting would be incomplete without a serious exploration of the religious dimensions of our lives. These ministries seek to keep the religious portion of the search before the campus scene.

LIBRARY The Metropolitan Campus Library has been established to provide students and faculty with the materials needed to implement and supplement the classroom Ie arming experience. Fundamental to this objective is recognition of the fact that to further the learning process effectively, the Library's collection of materials must reflect the diversity of the student body and the range of abilities and learning styles to be found in such a group. All types of material, in any form, must be acquired and organized to meet student and faculty learning, teaching and informational needs. Library services and programs to accompany and interpret the materials collection are designed to be in harmony with and to support student aspirations and college goals.

ROOM In between your classes? If you would like some entertainment, a place to relieve your mind of frustrations, somewhere where you can really enjoy yourself, try CCC's Metro Games Room. You'll have the opportunity to play pool, ping pong, air-hockey, foos-ball, bowling and several pin ball machines. Most of all you'll have variations of musical entertainment from our "Pimp" the juke box. Also once a year the Games Room offers each and every student the privilege of participating in the tournaments consisting of billiards for men women and ping pong for male and female. The head of the department, Mr. Jesse Boiner, and his student assistants cordially invite each and every student to the Games Room facilities.

STUDENT GOVERNMENT EXECUTIVE BOARD
Terry Hubbard, Executive Board
Ken Marshall, Executive Board
OPEN LETTER TO STUDENT BODY When someone asks you "What is student government?", tell them that it is the one and only officially recognized representative body of students on campus. It is comprised of students who are dedicated to the proposition of representing the total student populace. It was not designed to be a particularly easy task nor do we of Student Government expect anything less than opposition from all sides. When there is a question of Student's rights vs. Instructor's rights we should be there; when there is a question of administrative policy vs. student demands we will be there; wherever there is a question involving student interest, Student Government as the official representatives of the students, will have major input to a great degree. It should be pointed out however that any student government is only as effective as its constituency will allow. The more interested the student body, the more effective the student government. Plain and simple. It would be ostentatious of Student Government to say that we will provide a prescription of cure for all the ills that are prevalent in this institution. However we will try to establish a formula of working together wherever, whenever and with whomever it becomes necessary to obtain a positive result for the betterment of the general Student Body.

"Love's Many Faces"
It has been said and I'll repeat Some think this world is really "neat" While others tired of toil and strife Say, "Oh, to live the easy life".
The father of a family Must be diversified, you see He must support and guide along Be firm and gentle, kind and strong.
The easy life has a happy sound In which peace and love and joy abound But pause a moment and you'll see Life's perspective in reality.
"Mother" she who's given life A tireless homemaker, mother, wife She cooks and sews and is the heart In creation, she has shared a part.
A siren wails through the dead of night Assuredly, it will be all right The policeman soon will "get his man' And have the situation well in hand.
Young and sure, the "hippie" utters. "Why can't all men live as brothers?" "Because my appearance is different, you see The scorn of man is loosed on me."
In sterile gown and brilliant light The doctor rights to save a life It matters not who the patient is Surely, his hand will be guided by "His".
"Let little children come to Me" Was the Lord Jesus fervent plea He did not from them ere' depart But spoke kind words and touched their hearts
And, too, the soldier fighting a war Perhaps, he is the boy next door Brought up to love his fellow man Must, soul-torn, kill as many he can.
So, too, must each man strive to see How instrumentive he can be In spreading peace and quelling hate Let's start today while it's not too late! by Eileen M. Thompson
A Life I Live
I live a life of belief and hope No I don't drink, no I don't smoke. No need of drinking, trying to get high, No need of smoking to get cancer and die. No need of faking and pretending what I'm not Only thankful to God for whatever I've got. No need of singing only the blues Why not the spiritual if! do choose. I go to parties, skating and places, But I don't overdo it, come on let's face it. You're not to cool because you stay out all night You're just in the crowd, and they think it's right. You may think I'm crazy, or consider me a fool, But that's alright square, because in God's language I'M COOL. by Vanessa Hudson
I am thinking of you now and will be tomorrow, I am thinking of the happiness and not of the sorrow. I think of you when you are here and when you are there, My memories are so many I have some to share. So since you won't join me to help me share, Just stay where you are and I will continue to care. I think of you all the time but what good does it do, My thoughts are just memories and can't cuddle up to you. by S. Forte Jr.
A Poem About Dr. King
If I could make his dream come true, These are some of the things that I would do: I would let things go lacking in my life, To help rid this world of hate and strife. I must contact the old and young, For the work I've started just begun. This work must grow bigger day by day, As the years go by you can truthfully say:
It was my desire to help make a better way.
I would go down to the lowest pit, To help my brother so they can be fit. Fit to live their life at best, And help put some others mind at rest. If I could make his dream come true, I would go to the slums and this I would do: I would tear down the slum houses, and build them new, This would be the beginning of a dream come true. I'd strive hard to make all things free, Yet some of my brothers think this shouldn't be. They should search their hearts with out and in, And then will they see that we want to be their friend. So don't sit around with nothing to do, Come join me to make a dream come true. These are some of the things you and I can help do. by S. Forte Jf.
asphalt - time perspective
seems only yesterday some folks had no work, had no hope played numbers, ate, drank, stayed back and sang them blues 'bout being kings and queens tomorrow seems early this morning some folks saw the light, hid their fright walked that walk, ducked them blows, found some hope and chanted their prayers 'bout we shall over come some day bet round about midnight some folks'11 have so much work, so much hope playing a new gambling game, getting ready to eat, drink, dance and sing we's born agin / we's raised up high/ be kings and queens this time tom morrow Reprinted from Black Girl, Black Girl Copyright 1972 by Leatrice Emeruwa
Take Time To Laugh
Take time to laugh I told my man one day 'cause - blew all the coins on a bad dress - I knew we couldn't pay. Take time to laugh lady you sure done gone stone nuts When I'm working in that iron house Busting all my strength and guts. Take time to laugh We both laugh like mad F or we knew that loving didn't come easy and loving each other was the only good way we had. Take time in living with each givin' more meaning to our laughter When things go wrong as hell and laughin' we both could hear a bell. For laughter makes most things beautiful, when walls start caving in While we're laughin' Couldn't we try just a little bit of living together again. Amelia (Bunny) Townsend
"Brotherhood In Perspective" Sometimes, in the quiet ci the night I ponder with perplexity men's plight My contemplation soon reveals The thoughts my saddened heart conceals. Why, in this age of innovation When moon-trips are the big sensation Is brotherhood oft' an unknown word Tho many voices have been heard. Which speak out in defense of others Urging men to live as brothers Too many times these words and tears Fall on hardened hearts and unhearing ears. The issues of race and equality By some, aren't thought of seriously Problems such as segregation Poverty, and human degredation. Are passed off as of no concern Oh, when will people learn That human life must be protected Let's put priorities in perspective. It's fine to send men into space With foreign countries, we'll keep pace Oh, yes, we'll give out foreign aid For super-highways, our taxes we've paid. However, does it not seem senseless Not to help those too defenseless To alleviate their lot It's ironical, is it not? In protesting this inhumanity We're all God's children in society! Let us, each one, raise their voice To show that mankind has a choice. by Eileen M. Thompson

A Yearbook can be many things. It can be big, it can be small, it can cry, it can laugh. I feel that this years' Cougar is more than just a Yearbook. " Getting it all together" represents a gathering of ideas and concepts. The 1974-75 Cougar tells a very unique story. It tells the story of a Community College. One may look back through the Cougar and feel he or she was involved in everything that happened or took place throughout the 1974-75 year. A unique College such as Cuyahoga Community College, has also a unique student body, faculty , and administration. We feel that each and everyone of these unique individuals have been included in some way in this year's Cougar. The endeavor of producing a yearbook of such a character and personality that the Cougar does possess is most challenging. This years Cougar staff did accomplish this task. Although small in number they were very big in determination. Cindy, there aren't enough words to express my appreciation for all the time, energy, and effort you provided to this Yearbook. You were the main part of the staff. You're the " Greatest". Ray, Thanks for all the hours in the dark room and for not saying no every time I would ask for another print. Diane, A more efficient Business Manager simply does not exist. Big George, There is no doubt in my mind that your art work is the best thank you for providing all the versital drawings which helped to make the Cougar so unique. Bill, you were great. When I needed that special photograph you'd rush out to get it. You were the reason we were able to cover everything. Tom, I wish you would have stayed around for the finish. Thanks wherever you are. Janis, Every staff has someone to take care of the odds and ends. You were there. Thanks Nancy, An Editor could not ask for and receive any more than I did. When you were needed you were there. What more could a staff ask for. You were our support. Thanks Loads. John, No yearbook or staff should be without you. You and your company were absolutely the greatest.
