Due to heavy rain, the con­ cert was delayed by two hours. According to Hfeil Dennis, entertainment editor o f The M ace and Crown , “Inner Circle just got me going, and everyone else. Hope­ fully they’ll be coming back.” Fortunately, the weather didn’t put a damper on the festivi­ ties, and students still managed to have a won­ derful time. The

Tw enty-first Annual Literary Festival turned out to be one o f the best ever. The speakers ranged from T on y Grooms to the thirtyninth United States Poet Laureate, Robert Pinsky, as well as an in-depth p a n el d is c u s s io n between three genres. Due to overwhelming crowds, some o f the readings even had to turn p eop le away. According to Jam ii C la ib o r n e , “ The Literary Festival was a truly remarkable event, and I am already looking forward to next year,” proving that our school has plenty to offer its students and staff.

For many V students, “goB ing Greek” is a major deci­ sion in their college careers. Any sorority or fraternity member will contend that what they are apart o f is a lifelong commitment. With over twentyfive different chapters colonized on campus, it is often a difficult task for students to choose between them. Factors such as scholarship, leadership, and philan­ thropy influence poten­ tial members. Fraternities and So­ rorities are unique as individuals. As a group they are able to accom­ plish campus and com­

munal events. Working together as a team cre­ ates lasting bonds and everlasting friendships. Brotherhood and sisterhood is the extra plus that sets Greek letter organizations aside from others. Campus Greeks describe it as a shoulder to cry on, a constant sou rce o f encourage-ment, a home away from home, and often a needed reality check. Kristen Tuttle remarked, “ Through Alpha Phi, I met the women who have become my best friends; they in turn introduced me to the man who became my fiancee. by: Erynn Millard

What is it like living in the residence halls? What happens if I don’t get along with my roommate? These ques­ tions and more usually go through the minds o f new campus resi­ dents.

To be on the safe side it is always a good idea to lock your car up behind you, at least this is the advice given by the campus police. First year com ­ muter, Ray Hogge not only locks his doors but activates his alarm to protect his valuables. The last thing a person needs after a day o f hard classes is to find their car missing. Before going to class, Kevin Smith puts his auto theft device "The Club" on his steering wheel to protect his car from a thief.

There are plenty o f benefits at the "G ood M orning Commuters" program. Torrie Johnson and Chloe Carrington take advantage o f the free drinks and hot dogs given out at a commuter lunch designed to get commuters involved.



Commuters are practically just residents on wheels. Jamie Godsey uses his cell phone from the privacy of his Sports Utility Vehicle. Phones and TVs are just the latest technology being put into cars. If Jamie only had a refrigerator he w ould be set.

With 18,500 students on campus, It is no surprise that a large percentage are commuters. These students have traffic and the dreaded task o f park­ ing to contend with, leaving little time for campus involvement. In order to help remedy this problem, students are greeted each Tuesday between 7:30 and 9:00 AM with free coffee and dough­ nuts. They can also use a special “Commuter Card” to get discounts at special events or com­ muter lunches. Some commuters are also as­ signed a commuter as­ sistant who calls to in-

form them about these events and other meet­ ings. Though commut­ ing can be difficult at tim e s, so p h o m o re Teresa Denton said “It’s so nice to be able to go home after class and completely get away from all o f my pres­ sures at school.” Instead o f driving home to study, some com m uter stu den ts choose to study in W ebb’ s North M all which is dubbed the “Commuter Lounge.” It is directly located across from Java One Coffee house which offers that late night coffee to keep commuters awake on a tough drive home. by Jordan Morris

What does Bill Cosby and the Sixth Annual Wacky Olympics have in comm on? That’s right, Jell-O! The first ever Jell-O eating con­ test was one o f the many activities offered this year in the annual event. Developed by the staff o f Auxiliary Services six years ago, the contest was cre­ ated to get students involved with the Uni­ versity.

This yea r al so b r o u g h t “Lim bo” with music provided by a giant Coca Cola truck that dis­ pensed free drinks to participants. In be­ tween events, pizza donated by Dining Ser­ vices was also given out free. At the end o f the event, students walked away with armfuls o f prizes, full stomachs and smiles on their faces. b y: Tommy Smigiel

Cha, C ha, Cha, everybody lim bo! Limbo was one of the most challenging activities. Maria Zuniga and Tommy Smigiel hold the lim bo pole as Preston Noe tries to see how 'low he can g o'. M ost people were eliminated after the pole dropped to waste level.


If looks could win the balloon popping relay, Marcus Diehl would be the champion! Marcus was one of the many students to enjoy the activities provided at the 6th Annual Wacky Olympics.

This, and many other events at Wacky Olym足 pics, brought about great enthusiasm towards the coming year. Friends always work together. Sotonya Mooton and Claudia Massenburg team up for a three-legged relay race. Each team had to run around a series of cones without falling over. The first one across file finish line would win a variety of prizes.

It is becoming appar­ ent that religion is spreading among col­ lege students. “Spiri­ tuality is becoming more apparent on campus. People are beginning to show some type o f faith in one deity or an­ other,” stated Alton Jamison o f the Bbony Impact Gospel Choir. 49th Street alone is home to religious orga­ nizations such as the Baptist Student Center, the Catholic Campus Ministry, the Islamic Center, and the Canter­ bury Center. What peaks students’ interest into these diverse faiths? Lonnie «Jones an­ swered, “Students are drawn to religious sects

by the innate human neces­ sity to believe in a higher power then themseleves.” Diana W asson commented, “People believe in what they believe in because they need to fill a void in their life.” Whatever the religious affiliation a student may be it was relevant that the support for reli­ gious faith was accepted by everyone. In fact, for the first time a “Celebration o f Faith” was coordinated. It brought all religious groups on campus to­ gether to rejoice in believing. by: Hud Williams

Traveling to other coun­ tries as missionaries was a popular option for many students of a religious faith. Emmanuel Canoy took advantage of this opportunity by going on a missionary trip with the Baptist Student Union.

After an extensive prayer, Khelid Abdul-Matejela, Abdul Sihibe and Sami Mohammed, take time to discuss teachings from the Muslim Faith. Muslim Students come together daily to pray and to discuss Muslim Faith awareness on campus.

Many faculty members have other prestigious positions in addition to their jobs here at Old Dominion. Overseas in China is Dr. Dwight Allen, Eminent Professor of Educational Reform and International Technical Advisor for the tJnited Nations Development Programme. Sometimes faculty like to express their personalities through interesting collec­ tions. English teacher Sandra Swift collects and makes puppets as a hobby. "It is my art form.

Distance learning is a new advancement that uses televisions and microphones in a classroom setting to provide off campus students with a means to achieve a degree from our university. This is done by broadcasting to more than 50 colleges, military installations, corporations, and hospitals across Virginia and the nation. Classes are offered in 17 bachelor’s degree programs and eight master’s programs. Though the distance learning program had been set up out o f the Education Building, there is now a new building beside the library for IM É !fci«t3TÜ u r'n* O V

M ancly Rawcliffe, a Teletechnet student said, “I think that Teletechnet is a great opportunity for those who cannot get to ODU to take our courses.” “Students praise the system,” said Patrick Powell, Teletechnet’s executive director. Their grades are as high or higher than the on campus students’ .” The over 600 scholars that have graduated from the Teletechnet program prove this success. by: Jennifer Markatine As the Teletechnet program breeches the twenty-first century, many of the initial concerns have been settled.

Not only do these participants learn informa­ tion that is relevant to their majors, but they gain experiences that will last them a lifetime. Study Abroad participant, Reihnard Flores, studied overseas in Montpellier, France. "It was a growing experience. I had fun. I was independent and on my ow n", he remarks. The Study Abroad program is open to all students in the University, regardless of the discipline.



The Student Activities Council sponsors many events throughout the year. Students gather in Webb center to talk to a visiting psychic. Mrs. Gail Foxworthy, a mother of a student, came and provided her services to the students for free.

As midterms approached, many studefits, such as Reggie Bassett, looked for a way to unwind and grind. Throughout the school year, various student organiza足 tions sponsored Webb Jams which provided entertain足 ment.

Students not only contrib足 ute to our University, but they contribute to the community, as well. Student Mike Kirk gives a smile while participating in the Student Ambassa足 dor Blood Drive.

The student body is made of many different faces, personalities and backgrounds. In a different point of view, Vickie Kranse


shows her face through a caricature. The artist was provided by the Student Activities Council for free, during activity hour.

Tables are set up through足 out the school year to inform students of the services organizations provide on campus. Marla Zinni, Angela Toner and Cheryl Gavin show interested students what Psi Chi has to offer.

Greek organizations play an integral part in the campus community. Zeta Tau Alpha members Danielle Roshov and Suda Somvang discuss one of many upcoming philanthropic activities that their sorority offers.

Director of Student Activities and Leadership, Dr. Walter Kimbrough, tries to increase campus involvement by recruiting Carlette M endoza and Dwayne Urquhart to one o f the 200 plus student organizations on campus.

I t ’ S; There is so much time, energy, and attention to detail involved in the production of the Laureate Yearbook. With such an awesome amount of work to be done, it takes a large, dedicated staff to ensure the yearbook's success. Here, are two of our dedicated members, Christina Walker and Megan Hilliard, hard at work as they pour over pictures and negatives.

lu r id e When thinking o f words to describe the Laureate Yearbook staff, many come to mind... but the most accurate are “dedication” and “determination” . The frequent late nights in the Laureate Yearbook office were filled with headaches, tired bodies, and mass consump­ tion o f pizza and caffeinated beverages. Now, you may ask, what could possibly make a person do this? It’s the idea o f making a product that can capture the faces and spirit that make up our University. Generations from now, we can look back and see that this year will not be forgotten. It is with that idea in mind that the Laureate staff puts so much time, work, and love into the creation o f this book. We had a large, diverse staff this year, all dedicated to the success o f the yearbook. But, there were times when the future looked bleak. It was during these trying times that the staff and editors pulled together as a team, and showed the true meaning o f “dedication” and “determination” . That’s what made this yearbook possible. We take pride in our product. That’s what we’re all about. by: Terree Klaes and Suzy Rew

bonding diversity o f the V SA are


Culture is a dominating element o f our lives. How we keep our cultures alive re­ mains to be determined by our own ambitions. The Vietnamese Student Association keeps their heritage alive by the many activi­ ties and events they sponsor throughout the school year. From their annual fashion show to the TET New Year’s Celebration, the members o f the Vietnamese Student Associa­ tion strive for unity among the numerous students who share their common ancestry. With over twenty active members, the Viet­ namese Student Association emphasizes cul­ tural awareness within the community.

.............. Difference Alpha X i Delta is known throughout the campus community as one o f our most prominent and active sororities. First recog­ nized at ODU in 1964, AXiD is not only one o f our most highly respected sororities, but it was also the very first introduced to the University. AXiD, rich in tradition, adds to its legacy by participating in community out­ reach programs, while providing its members with leadership and sisterhood. Needless to say, the AXiD ladies take pride in their na­ tional motto, “ Helping Women Realize Their Potential.” “Being a part o f Alpha X i Delta has helped me to better involve myself on and o ff cam­ pus” , adds M elissa Craig. Along with oncampus events, AXiD participated in the national “Make-A-Differenee Day” food drive.

The Dance Association is an organization that is dedicated

The epitome o f style, poise, and grace, the Dance Association is an organization that is dedicated to artful expression through dance. Always striving for improvement, the Dance Association offers its members Master Class workshops which feature guest speak­ ers and performers. During these work­ shops, dancers receive valuable tips on per­ formance as well as feedback from profes­ sionals. The organization’s most momentous occasion was their Student Choreography Program in which the students wrote, di­ rected, and performed in the presentation. “The Dance Association has helped me bond and relate to other dancers. More importantly, it has helped me improve and grow as a dancer,” adds Robyn Webb* With all o f their previous accomplishments and expecta­ tions for future success, the Dance Association truly is an organization that is moving forward by leaps and bounds. by: Terree Klaes

Our Engineering Department is always chang­ ing and expanding. The University is proud of the amount o f interest students have expressed by actively participating in organizations such as the Institute o f Electrical and Electronic Engi­ neers. This organization gives students the opportu­ nity to become a part o f the world’s largest professional organization. The local chapter offers an “Engineering Students Only” study room in Kaufman Hall, IEEE student branch computers, and access to senior engineering students.

The fields of électronics and engineering are disciplines that require intricacy and multi­ faceted perspectives. It takes much more than a steady hand to be a master in these fields. It takes knowledge and patience as well.Engineering student, Mark Saunders, demonstrates just how delicate and intricate electrical working can really be.

Along with these numerous advantages, IEEE members are equally enthusiastic about taking part in extra-curricular activities with the organi­ zation which include hearing speakers from local businesses and government facilities.

Do you recall nervously signing your appli­ cation for admission to Old Dominion? Well, when you did, you signed the Honor Pledge. In doing so, you promised to refrain from academic dishonesty, to report any suspected violators o f the pledge, and to show up to an Honor Council hearing, if summoned: You signed the University’s most important creed. The Honor Pledge is so important, in fact, that there is an entire organization dedicated to preserving its integrity. That group is the Honor Council. The Honor Council makes sure that the pledge is adhered to, and that each student is aware o f what it means. They also keep students informed o f the repercussions Honor Pledge violations may hold. Their mission is to be o f service to the Students, faculty, and staff o f this fine institution. The University appreciates their service and dedication. by: Suzy Rew

The organization also travelled to the statewide Fall Conference concerning sexuality and gender issues. IVCF strives to confront today’s issues.

fclfefou öl Golden Key National Honor Society worked diligently to spread tkeir

If you can recall the familiar children’s fairytale about Good King Midas, you’ll re­ member that everything the king touched turned to gold. Hence the phrase, the “ Golden Touch” . One organization that worked diligently to spread their “ Golden Touch” throughout the community is the Golden Key National Honor Society. The group spent much o f its time helping the younger generations o f the Hampton Roads area through various activi­ ties. Golden Key National Honor Society put up a Christmas Angel Tree and also partici­ pated in a local tutoring/mentoring program for area schools. Who knows? Maybe in a few years, those same children helped by the Golden Key National Honor Society will contintue to spread the “ Golden Touch” throughout the community.

One of the several service projects that Golden Key participated in was their Christmas Angel Tree. On the tree were the names of needy children in the area. People chose names from the tree and purchased or donated toys and clothes to be given to these children. Lindsay Cerezo adorns this year's tree with festive ornaments and the names of these very special children.

SAC realizes the magnitude of campus involvement and strives to promote active




If there was an awesome event on campus this year, you can pretty much bet that the Student Activities Council had something to do with it. This organization, known com ­ monly as SAC, organizes, promotes, and hosts all sorts o f outstanding activities for students throughout the semester. Included on their impressive list o f regular events is their notorious film series held in the Mills Godwin Life Science Building, which draws quite a crowd. SAC also hosted an array o f specialty events this year including the Laugh-Off Comedy Show, the Mahogany ‘99 Black Arts Festival, and Sofapalooza. SAC realizes the magnitude o f campus involvement, and makes it their purpose to promote active participation by providing the campus with quality activities. No doubt about it, the Student Activities Council does an excellent jo b keeping this campus busy. by: Suzy Rew

It is not very often that a Generation-X icon shows up on campus. In February, MTV came to promote their popular Spring Break Show. Students were encouraged to apply for such shows as "The Grind" and the ever popular "Real World". Beth Maeyer and Beth Lehtonen manned the tables and helped the good people at MTV during their stay.

No, the orange vests are not Delta Zeta's new look. Actually, the sorority adopted four exit ramps off of 1-64 where they conduct a semesterly clean-up session. It took 15 girls nearly two hours to clean up all of the trash and garbage that had piled up in the bushes, grass, and ditches. For safety reasons, the ladies aren't permitted to cross the interstate during the task.

Are you sick and tired o f bland commercial radio? Then perhaps you should tune into ODU’s very own radio station, WODU AM 1570. WODU plays the largest variety o f music in Hampton Roads with music styles ranging from hip-hop and R&B to metal, techno, and alterna­ tive. The station also offers student produced shows that cater to every preference, mainstream or eccentric. Best o f all, the station operates twenty-four hours a day. Not only does the station entertain the cam­ pus over the airwaves, but they also work at community and University events. WODU was a source o f great entertainment at the Student Senate’s Monarch Mania before the men’s bas­ ketball game at the Scope. WODU strives to entertain. So, if you are bored with industry radio and yearn for fun-filled entertainment, set your dial to AM 1570 and cruise with the wild and zany crew at WODU. by: Ashleigh M. Etheridge

"Which program should go on at eight o'clock?" asks WODU station manager, Burgandi Collins to DJ Doughboy. There is so much more involved in radio produc­ tion than broadcasting. Staff members must bid for time slots, work office hours, attend staff meetings, and of course, decide the music selec­ tions which will be played during the shows.

This year, the Student Senate has come full circle. This group o f dedicated individu­ als works together to serve the campus com ­ munity in all areas o f student life. Events such as the Tennessee and UConn/W&M Carbashings, the Senate Coffee Hour, the Budget Town Hall Meeting, and the Honor Society Fair allowed Senators and students many opportunities to interact. Senate pur­ sued a rigorous schedule o f projects in an effort to make student life both more enjoy­ able and more productive. “I enjoy the op­ portunity to make a difference while serving the Student Body,” comments University/ Human Relations Chair, Senator S u zy R ew . With the addition o f a large group o f fresh­ men, prospects for the future o f the Student Senate are looking good.

Returning to school is never an easy task, especially when you haven’t been in a class­ room setting for quite some time. Delta Sigma Lambda is a sorority that strives to make the transition for returning women easier by maintaining the support system and active fellowship that these women need. This organization has been an incredible asset to the University’s community since 1956. Not only do the ladies o f DSL lend support to each other, but they give back to the community as well. This past fall, the orga­ nisation sponsored a “Pet Therapy” for the residents o f the Georgian Manor Nursing Home and their animal companions. Delta Sigma Lambda also worked the infamous Big Blue Room for the men’s basketball games. Obviously, Delta Sigma Lambda is not only a foundation on which returning women build themselves, but it is also an organization that is dedicated to playing an active role in University life. b y : Am anda M artin

If you had to name an organization that is dedicated to promoting unity and together­ ness while strengthening race relations on this campus, that groups would have to be the NAACP (National Association for the Adcancement o f Colored People). Our local chapter o f this national organization is one o f the most dynamic and distinguished orga­ nizations on campus. The NAACP does much more than promote unity. They have serviced the community by initiating a tutoring/mentoring program for the local YMCA and for the Tucker Alternative School, and by assisting the Circle K Order with the “Adopt A Spot” program. The NAACP has also been a great source o f awareness for the campus. They held a “Black Politics 101” lecture, an affirmative action forum with the College Republicans, and participated in the “Jump for the Cure.” The group also hosted the Harlem Renais­ sance Night to provide the campus with a night o f jazz, poetry, and art. The NAACP has truly benefited the lives o f student by providing social, educational, and cultural events to the campus and surrounding com­ munity. by: Suzy Rew

How could one sum up the feelings that are going through my head right now. lo r the past eight years, ever since middle school yearbook , I have dedicated my life to taking pictures, writingheadlines, articles and captions, selling ads and yearbooks, making layouts, cropping photos and well... the list could go on. This time has gone by so slow, but at the same time so fast. The stories that I could tell from staying up yearbook nights, all the interesting people I have met and thefriends I have made. Yearbook has become apart o f my life, and it is so hard to say that "this is it". I f "this is it," then I am proud of what I have accomplished. The 1999 yearbook has meant so much to me. It is probably my last official yearbook publication and probably the best I have ever been apart of. I can truly say that I was "Part of the Pride," at ODU. My goal this year was to produce a book so great, that when people pick it up, all they can say is "Wow." This is a sign of accomplishment and success. I will hopefully be moving on to a greater responsibility next year as Student Body President. Hey, if I don't win, maybe I'll come back fo r another year as editor, or maybe notl Maybe this book is a sign thatitis time to pass my yearbook legacy on. I have to admit, that I am starting to run out of ideas. What ever happens, I'm sure, somehow yearbook will be apart of my life.

The first ever carbashing took place before the Tennessee Volunteers versus the Lady Monarchs basketball game. Spon­ sored by Student Senate, the carbashing gave the opportunity for students to show their school spirit and relieve stress. Chris Lizette warms up his swing before pounding the bumper of the I ‘Tennessee car.

Once again the Lady Monarchs proved to be the dominate team in the Colonial Athletic Associa­ tion. The ladies closed out the season with their 80th consecutive win and ranked 5th nationally, entering the CAA tournament as the number one seed.
