T h e IVlotley C re w It’s about being different, about variation, about keeping things complicated and away from the repetitive. It’s about diversity. W h at student would enjoy listening ip'^L m onotone professor? W h at on-campus student would appreciate the exquisite taste o f fine dorm food if it was the sam# thing day in day out? The African-American novelist, poet and essayist, Ism ael Reed wrote the essay "What's American About America?!; M oving from the "melting pot" view where America has multiple cultures m olten into a single, blended, colloid-like element, Reed prefers the more colorful philosophy of Yale professor, Robert Thom pson, who swears theJJvS. is more of a cultural French bouillabaisse. It's more a stew o f varying vegetables, all swirling around in a tantalizing soup, yet still retaining their individual characteristics. A nd o f course, O ld Dom inion University 's stew is one o f the richest. In a recent survey o f what students appreciate most o f the university, a popular answer turned out to be O DU's diversity. I jffi university proves to be a true microcosm » t o d a y ’s posttraumatic contemporary American society. Cultures, people and languages o f all types have come to O D U for the single purpose o f education. Ain’t it cool? As far back as the 4 0 ’s an international program was available for students oversee®, The Dragas International Center has been helping students come from around the globe and into O D U or has sent students o ff who wanted to study abroad. This year there were nearly 1,2 3 0 students from 10 3 different countries studying throughout the colleges. However, there are a(so those students o f different cultures yet still live in the U .S. O D U has made special arrangements for them. M ulticultural Students Services aid students o f all races and color and publishes the newsletter properly entitled “the Spectrum”, covering multicultural events. In addition, clubs and organizations such as M undo Hispano, APASU, Black Student Alliance, NAACP, and United Cultural Association, have formed in support o f the university’s diversity. Still, diversity is not only in culture, but lifestyle as well. Students attending O D U are from various generations. Some are middle-aged or even elderly, as old or older than many professors. Some students o f various^ages are married, divorced, perhaps widowéd/widowered. And then what o f lifestyle choice? The organization Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual Students and Allies formed as a result o f the different preferences students had and wanted to express. The university help:» to represent a number o f different religions as well. Christian campus ministers are available from the different sects, from Baptist to Lutheran to Catholic. In the body o f students there are Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and Jewish. One thing is fpr sure, it’s hard to get bored w ith “the m otley crew” o f O D U .

(Above): The Jewish student union, Hillel, makes itself visible on campus by constructing a sukkah in front of Webb Center. They also coordinated a canned food drive with the event. (Right): Students from ODU come from all over the world to take classes.

Beginnings As the big day o f moving in finally winds down to a dose, the freshmen are left with doors wide open to get involved with dubs and organizations a plenty But how does one gp about learning about all the opportunities available to them? Monarch Review o f course. Monarch Review is a week long ice breaker that encompasses m any different events. Am ong these events are Debut, Playfair, Mainstreet, and Beachfest Debut is an event that is intended for freshmen and transfer students to get to know each other and the different organizations that are held here. W ithin the first week, m any new students find it rather difficult to get to know one another, that is w h y Debut is h d d It is the perfect ice breaker because it gathers all o f the new students that live on campus into one room. Although it m ay get crowded, it is the perfect opportunity for the students to interna and pardapate in the activities that are hdd. If one is tired o f talking and meeting new people without anything else to occupy some time, Playfair is the event for you. Playfair is an event that is h d d to have the freshmen and transfers to interaa following Debut. This is an event in which students m ay parridpate in a variety o f games. Along with the games, food is provided, and who can beat the

YL6VU

opportunity o f free food? N ow that all o f the new students have had the chance to meet one another and make friends, what is one to do with their spare time? Join an organization o f course. The prime opportunity for this is Mainstreet This is an event that is h d d outside ofWfeb Center in that wish to s a up a table are allowed to. A t these tables,

come to

members hand out pamphlets and briefthe unknowing o f w hy they should join their group. Last, but not least, is Beachfest This is an activity that is hdd outside ofWhitehurst dormitory T he cafeteria from Whitehurst serves hot meals to anyone who has paid or has a meal plan, and benches are provided for people to sit and enjoy the outside environment Vblleyball nets are s a up and those who wish to m ay take advantage o f the facilities. Organizations have also been known to so up tables to hdp recruit new members. W ith all o f these activities that have been

â&#x20AC;˘

provided by O ld Dominion University for new students, w h y not take advantage o f them? Ifwe are going to spend the four most important years o f our lives here at O D U , w e m ight as well get off to a good start by goring involved!


The incoming freshmen take a break during Debut 多0 make some new friends. Part o f coming to a university is about meeting new people and getting fresh ideas from others.

Is There Life Out There?

W ith going to class, studying, working, cleaning up after your roommates, etc... Do students really have lives? You decide.

o you were sitting there . . . at home, with your diploma, staring blankly into space, m outh wide open, not a thought in your head, as the television played static . . . suddenly, INSPIRATION! Woo-hoo! College! Hopefully, that wasn't you or someone you know. I f it was, w e l l . . . anyway, odds are you and others came here deciding a high school diploma wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite good enough. It could have been for any number o f reasons. W hatever the reason, there is one thing you may not have thought o f in your decision-making process. College life makes people just a litde b i t . . . crazy. O r let's just say "eccentric" since this is a place o f I advanced education.

S

Thus it brings us all to the ever pressing question: do students actually have lives? One, get in some study time. Two, go to class. Three, get in study time. Four, gei a social life. Five, get a decent GPA and a handsome college transcript. Throw in some clubs and organizations, perhaps fraternities/sororities, dorm life, work, maybe some partying, or you m ay have family life as w e l l . . . and did I mention you have to study? That is a lot to do. So how do you do it all? Do you do it all? Lets take a few examples. Note: The following examples are based on fictitious characters and do not have any connection w ith anyone living or dead. A n y relative similarities are purely coincidental. Example one is an out-of-state male freshmen who lives in Rogers Hall. His greatest concern m ainly lies in when the heck his financial aid will finally come in and ii looking forward to the oodles o f fim he's going to have during the weekends. MacArther Center M all again? Yeah! A fter finishing classes, he rushes over to the cafeteria only to find that the dorm food he loves oh so much is unavailable. Alas, the cafe has closed for the day. Tired and famished, he staggers up to his room to find his roommate has done some "redecorating," and is now studying, in his boxers, listening to Limp Bizkit. And yet, before example one is able to get to his bed, a group o f his dorm friends on his hall race down the hallway, screaming "Dude, we just found another party man!" Weak to the promise o f chicks, music, and food, he throws his books on his bed and follows in suit. And you call this a life?: Example two is an in-state female commuter. Her largest concern lies in finding that perfect parking spot right next to class. Sure, she doesn't have to w orry about dorm life, like example one, yet she does have other concerns. Every morning she carefully calculates how much time it will take her to get to her first class, thus coming t ) an ideal time to leave. A time early enough to get a good parking spot, but still late enough to sleep in just those few extra minutes. In between classes her favorite place to hang out is at Webb Center where she picks up lunch at the food court, giving in to "outrageous prices" and giving up the meal points. On-campus students don't know how well o ff they are. O f course, there is the relaxing drive to look forward to everyday. Traffic? In Virginia? Impossible! Example three is a male international student who has come to O ld Dominion University to take up a major and practice his English. His greatest concern is sounding incoherent. He finds the American culture extremely bizarre, yet fabulously exciting, hr his first semester, he was overjoyed when he finally was able to see, in real life, something Americans call a squirrel." A t times he may get a headache, constantly having to think o f his translations before speaking. Could you imagine concentrating that hard for an entire day? Nonetheless, he has made a lot o f friends. Each one teaches him strange idioms, exceptions to the American English language, and behavior in contemporary American pop culture. In return, he tells them amazing stories o f all the things he's seer back home. Now, his friends want to contact Dragas to study abroad. Example four is a female off-campus student who is using the TELETECHNET Program. Her number one concern is connection speed and whether or not the site staff will help her. It sure beats commuting all the way to O D U . She's actually quite grateful, being a single mother makes it hard for her to leave home for long periods o f time. She's determined to try her best in furthering her education, even i f it does mean dealing with a crash every now and then.

So do students have lives? Sure. Some o f it may include locking yourself on the j library quiet floors for several hours at a time. Sound boring? Check your breathing. Or I it could mean joining a few clubs and organizations or being included in a fraternity/ sorority rush. W h y not? Go on out, have fun. Meet new people, see new places, learn something. That's what college life is all about. â&#x2013;

Monarch Madness by: Geoff and the Dans With the basketball season officially underway, what better way to celebrate than by throwing a party. Monarch Madness is the annual event that is held to commence the season. It is an event that provides numerous games for students and friends. Among these games are the inflatable boxing arenas, an inflatable mountain that people may choose to climb, and the opportunity to attempt some free throws from lying in a bed. Not only does Monarch Madness bring together many people with the love of the game, but it also provides a chance for the team to let off stress from the anticipation of how this season will turn out. Party on Monarchs!

Fashion Show

by: R. Larivee

Fashion M arketing Takes the Stage The Fashion Marketing department (a division o f Occupational and Technical Studies) brought their skills from the Technology building across Hampton Blvd. , when they held their fashion show in Webb center. This show brought about 150 people into the North Cafeteria, where a stage and chairs were set up for the occasion. Some were there to support the designer, Ebony Davis, the various models, while others just wanted to have a look at the styles. Davis had styles for business and for casual. She incorporated deep colors and animal prints in her designs. The clothes were creative and innovative. The perfect mood lighting framed the event while the audience jammed to the upbeat music. Females catwalked while small siblings danced in the aisles. Truly a great fashion show. R. Larivee

flashing bulbs and

loud cheers, ODU “models-for-a-day” strutted their stuff in W O D U s fashion show. The campus radio station held the event Nov. 9th in Webb Center. The men and ladies presented the latest trends of Ralph Lauren from the Dillards department store in MacArther Center. Appreciative onlooker Phillip Riddick definitely let the clothes speak to him (or was it the women), “Oh yeah, I can go for that - its hot!” Spectators not only got the chance to cheer for their favorite cat-walker, but they also participated in the free prizes distributed. Among the gifts were Ralph Lauren fragrances, a $25 gift certificate to the ODU bookstore, and a Polo bag. To win the prizes, the W O D U hosts, James Toscano and Marie Domm, asked the audience to present certain items, such as combs, dollar bills, a NY state drivers license, and even a Haynes T-shirt (which had to be removed), and whomever approached them first with the requested item would win. So it was quite a show to watch the spectators almost trip over each other to come out on top. Just as members of the audience did not go home empty handed, every model left the show with a sense of pride and joy. The participants, namely Clinton Conyers, loved the encouragement emanating from the crowd just as much as showing off the latest fashions. “I hope I can keep this,” he wished. All good things must end and as those dark jeans and tall boots strutted back into oblivion, the final echoes of “You bad girl” reverberated through the departing crowd.

------G eo ffrey R u n y o n IP r Anyone who wished could enter a pumpkin catching device. The idea o f the engineering students’ was that the layers o f plastic would slow the decent o f the falling object. It kept the pumpkin from shattering completely, but it did split the sides o f the gourd. Runyon

A near miss sends the damage control team fefa&bling to fix one of the pumpkin catching devices. Dr. Charles Hyde-Wright, Jennifer Hodgeson, and Chris Manno move quickly to clear out pumpkin guts and to tape the outer box back together. As M .C. M ark Haskins reminds the crowd that all the pumpkins being dropped were volunteers. Mark kept the crowd entertained on the ground

while pumpkins Were prepared to be dropped from tlie roof of BAL.

G. Runyon

At least one experiment had to be performed. This device w a $ used to measure the impact force of the pumpkin. It took two tries to hit the target.

G. Runyon

The most successful pumpkin catcher of the day was this cardboard box filled with empty milk cartons. The pumpkin survived entirely intact.

Amidst rain and cold winds, baby boomers and generation Xers alike bowed their heads in rem em brance o f all serviceman, fallen, retired, and those still serving.

m en about

It was time to get ready for a night of music, talent, and excitement when Men About Progress held their second annual student talent show. The show was dee-jayed by All City Entertainment as students showed the crowd what they could do. Participants were judged on creativity and originality, their physical dress and appearance on stage, and their overall execution and display of their talent. More importantly, the participation and attitude of the audience played a major role in the judging process. The MCs kept the audience spirits high through the long night of great talent acts. As far as the show, participants sang original songs acapella, imitated their favorite artists by singing with background music, rapped and freestyled. There was also the amazing guitar stylings of Jeff Welsh. Each act started with a quick intro and a motto or quote which they had chosen. Among the audience's favorite quotes was by Tonya Rollins who had chosen as her quote "When you reach for the sky, if you fail, you will always land among the stars." Along with the many acts of the night, there was an appearance by the winner of the past M C contest, Quamin Gracia. Quamin showed his skills once again to the cheering audience. Junipis, The Poetry Elite also made it to the show. A combination of poetry, hip-hop and jazz, Junipis had just released a new CD and introduced themselves the crowd. In addition to a night full of hot acts, the audience was given raffle tickets. There were also free food and drinks, free for a small donation to Men About Progress that is. It was an exciting night with a lot of talented acts, and at the end it was up to the audience to choose between a four way tie! The audience cheered for their favorite acts and when it was all done, Jeff Welsh took first place, Tonya Rollins came in second place and the group Verbal Alliance placed third. It was indeed a full night for everyone. The music was great and the acts were hot. Hopefully they can out do themselves for next year's show. -

Old Dominion University may be known as a diverse school, but the students are the true factors involved in said diversity.

There’s a lot of places on campus that few people go to. You’d be surprised at some of the facilities available. Have you ever befen to the PERI Labs? How about the Art Library? Chances are, if your major doesn’t take you far out of the way you’ll never see some of the more interesting places on Campus. Now might be a good time to take a few days to just tour the campus. Go in every building. Check out every floor. Just don’t get locked in the Environmental Containment rooms in the Oceanography and Physical Science building!

The Road To Success I f at first you don’t look in the trash fo r instructions. (unknown) One is successful when they can lay a firm foundation with bricks thrown at them others, (unknown) The secret ofsucess is to know something nobody else knows. (Aristotle Onaissis) I f you succeed in all you do, its a sure sign you’re not reaching high enough. (Unknown) I f at first you don’t succeed, then skydiving isn’t fo r you. (Unknown) I f at first you don’t succeed, redefine success. (Unknown) Road to Success m


On September 24th a hypnotist made his appearance at ODU, and did a show in the Mills Godwin Building. He attempted to hypnotize 9 people and successfully hypnotized 6 of them. “Anyone can get hypnotized except for idiots and morons.” He also said that hypnotism is completely voluntary if you don’t want to get hypnotized he cant make you “Otherwise I’d be at a bank right now and not at a college doing a show.” One hour of hypnotism is as refreshing as 10 hours of sleep. The hypnotist made it clear that he would not try to get anyone to tell their deepest darkest secrets, or do anything inappropriate, that he would stop anyone from doing anything embarrassing. He also said that hypnosis is like sleep; people come in and out of it and he has to manage that during the course of the show. During the show, the entertainer guy had everyone drinking laughing juice and then when they ran out they went to get more, on the way they out ran a cop. He also had everyone pretend to be watching a horse race and root for the different horses. Chris Jenkins stole the show when he was pretending to be Clinton where he said he “liked to smoke crack in the parking lot.” After the show, Chris said the whole hypnosis experience was totally real! ¡ ¡ f t * Hypnotist

After all, it is the love of the game that got us where we are today, not the love o f winning.

details Explorers must note the people places, and things that have made the journey possible.

W ith all things said and done, it can be concluded that O ld D om inion University

has undergone some serious changes during the 2000-2001 school year. Dr. Koch, president o f the school, decided that it was tim e to go back to teaching, Constant H all experienced a complete overhaul, and the plans for the new convocation center finally taking form are am ong the most prom inent changes. W hen we return next semester, O D U m ay feel like an entirely new university. Sure, our com m unity w ill have to adjust to having a brand new president and a host o f new buildings to stare at, be we

(Far Left): The lion in the fountain is our symbol of power. (Left): Country, state, and school -together we form the com m unity that you see around us. (Above): The strong m ilitary presence in out community shows its pride at the homecoming parade.

w ill feel a new sense o f pride; for another school year had come and gone, along w ith the m illennium , and the changing of presidents, but we abide. Some things do not change however. O ur school is still at the pinnacle o f field hockey and wom ens basketball. W e always w ill be. Congratulations to all those outstanding players who achieved greatness, and to all those others whose accomplishments are not as well known. Faculty, staff, students, and the citizens around us all for our com munity...
