president’s message




By Lawrence M. Schall

“Who, I ask, will be the winners in this brave new world? The students who learned a single set of skills in college, who were trained well to do one thing, or those that learned in a way that allows them to be nimble and entreprenurial?”

I am working this weekend on a speech to a group of corporate executives on the subject of lifelong learning. It’s a treat to take some time and think broadly about what it is we are trying to accomplish at Oglethorpe. I am sure the life of a college president appears from the outside to be at least reasonably glamorous – sitting around all day thinking of big ideas.

Well, I can tell you my first year has been filled with thousands of hours paying attention to a host of very little ideas – accounts receivable, bandwidth, athletic rules and regulations and so on. It’s refreshing, on occasion at least, to look beyond the daily routine. The punch-line of my talk will be a simple one: I see our job at Oglethorpe as preparing students for their third and fourth jobs in life, not their first. After law school and a brief stint in a New York law firm, my dad went to work as corporate counsel for the DuPont Company (as in “better living through chemistry”). Thirty years later, he retired from that same company doing virtually the same thing he did in year one – defending DuPont in those cases where the effects of chemistry didn’t turn out so well. My father-in-law was a chemist, for DuPont of course. He worked 30 years as well for the company before her retired. Life stories like these are a thing of the past, relics like the ancient dinosaurs. My generation began to see the tables turn a bit. I’ve experienced, for example, three different careers in 30 years. I will admit that is a bit different path than most of my friends,

experienced, but possibly a precursor of things to come. Students graduating from college today can be certain that they will not only change jobs a number of times before their careers are over, but they will likely change careers a few times as well. New professions spring up all the time and old ones become virtually obsolete. Companies are bought and sold like properties on a Monopoly board, a vicious circle of downsizing and upsizing and downsizing again. Who, I ask, will be the winners in this brave new world? The students who learned a single set of skills in college, who were trained well to do one thing, or those that learned in a way that allows them to be nimble and entreprenurial? What does qualify one to be considered well-educated in the early stages of the 21st century? One of the taglines in use at Oglethorpe when I arrived was a “classic education in a contemporary city.” I wondered then as I do now how one defines a classic education. The early classical education in this country allowed for no electives, and science was simply not part of the curriculum

at all. Students were largely being trained to be ministers or civic leaders. They studied a narrow and prescribed range of subjects such as Greek, Latin and ancient philosophy. While all these subjects are taught today at Oglethorpe, students now choose from dozens of majors and minors and literally hundreds of courses. Our brand of classical education hardly resembles the original one. On the other hand, Oglethorpe, unlike virtually every other college in this country, has held onto a core curriculum, a set of courses common to all students, one that explores questions such as the nature of human virtue and the origins and sources of social order in ways not all that different from a classical education of 300 years ago. Our program today, in the broadest terms, looks back into history and forward to the future and resembles, in part, a classic education of the past. One question we ought to consider every year is exactly how the Oglethorpe education (classical or otherwise), including its core, prepares students to lead healthy, fulfilling and successful lives. I believe that a well-designed

set of core courses is a magnificent educational tool to ensure these outcomes, but we must always challenge ourselves to make what we do more effective. What are the skills and qualities our students must possess when they leave us? They must have the ability to read and think critically. They must be able to convey their ideas in powerful terms, both in writing and in speech. They must be skillful in reasoning logically and thinking analytically about important matters. They have to have a deep understanding of the most thoughtful reflections on right and wrong. They must have gained an appreciation for the increasingly international character of our lives and an appreciation for the differences that exist among us. They must be willing and able to assume the responsibilities of leadership and citizenship. And, they must be inclined to keep on learning. When it’s their time to change jobs or even careers for the third or fourth time, I want the students that have graced Oglethorpe’s campus to be ahead of the game, looking forward to new challenges, not fearing change.

Alumni Calendar

Paul Dillingham, Robert Bowden ’66 and Joel Goldberg ’00 (H) celebrate Oglethorpe’s growth.

Breaking New Ground On a warm Friday afternoon in early August, trustees, students and staff gathered behind Dempsey Hall, formerly New Residence Hall, to break ground on Oglethorpe’s newest residence halls. Building upon the success of North and South Halls, which opened in fall 2005, the new halls will feature the same Collegiate Gothic architecture and suite-style living with private bedrooms. Two seniors gained valuable experience interning on the construction project. Nate Blong ’07, completing a dual degree in engineering at Georgia Tech, worked with architects Gardner Spencer Smith Tench and Hensley. Robert Pavelka, Jr. ’07 interned with Richmond Sterling, the project managers. The $10 million project, which will include 150 beds, has been funded through the generous support of trustees, alumni and foundations. “Oglethorpe’s enrollment and residential demand have consistently increased over the last two years,” noted President Schall. “These new buildings will fulfill our growing need.” When the halls open next fall, Oglethorpe will have over 650 beds on campus. The groundbreaking received attention from WSB-TV, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and Atlanta INtown.

“Mr. Oglethorpe” Gets a Highway On September 26 Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue came to campus to officially dedicate Stephen J. Schmidt Memorial Highway, the stretch of Peachtree Road in front of Oglethorpe, honoring the 1940 graduate. Perdue then spoke to students, faculty, staff and the public in Lupton Auditorium. House Resolution 1302, honoring “Mr. Oglethorpe” with his own highway, was signed by Perdue on April 28. On hand to witness the signing at the capitol were Jeanne Schmidt ’42, Garland Pinholster, Representative Mike Jacobs, Senator Steve Henson, President Schall, Tony Lentini ’87 and members of the Schmidt family. The Georgia Department of Transportation’s 2005 Average Daily Traffic Report shows that an average of 15,000 drivers use Schmidt Highway every day traveling in each direction.

Freshmen Meet Chick-fil-A Founder Professor Chris Benton’s Fresh Focus class met an Atlanta legend less than one month after moving onto campus. After lunch in the Chick-fil-A corporate cafeteria, students met with two Oglethorpe alumni, Senior Vice President of Field Operations Tim Tassopoulos ’81 and Associate General Counsel Director Tammy Pearson ’86. Both alumni shared their Oglethorpe experiences before adding their advice to the freshmen. Students then toured the corporate headquarters, ending in S. Truett Cathy’s office. The founder and chairman of Chick-fil-A spoke to students before handing out his Golden Rulers and autographed copies of his 2002 book, Eat Mor Chikin: Inspire More People. The Schmidt family listens to Pinholster in the Governor’s Office.

Ricardo Bartsch-Filho ’10 and Tammy Pearson ’86 listen to S. Truett Cathy.


news & events





news & events Food For All Alumni know that Oglethorpe provides “food for thought” with its Core Curriculum, but did you know Oglethorpe provides food for pandas too? For over six years Oglethorpe has been a source of bamboo for pandas Lun Lun and Yang Yang at Zoo Atlanta. This partnership gained recent media exposure following the birth of a baby panda on September 6, with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WAGA Fox5 covering a recent harvesting trip by zoo staff members. Dr. Rebecca Snyder, the zoo’s panda curator, said the new cub may begin playing with bamboo at 6 months and will begin eating it around 13 or 14 months. Oglethorpe’s type of bamboo, Phyllostachys nigra ‘Henon’ or Giant Gray, is typically a winter food for the pandas, and zoo nutritionists will re-introduce it to the diet with the cooler weather. Henon will grow up to 65 feet tall with a diameter of 4.5 inches and is gray-blue in color. Over 200 species of bamboo grow in Georgia, but pandas, picky eaters that they are, will only eat about 20 types and some only seasonally. Oglethorpe’s bamboo grove, located behind Emerson Student Center, is over 30 years old.

Lindsey Cooper All Hands On Deck By Kelly Robinson Lindsey Cooper, originally from Oklahoma and a 2005 graduate of Oklahoma State University, has found a vast difference already between her large state school and Oglethorpe. “It’s been a great couple of months; everyone is friendly and welcoming. It is a different atmosphere from where I graduated. It’s nice to have a familiarity with the students and staff; it’s something that is so easily taken for granted.” “I think it’s going to be an exciting year personally to be able to be hands on with the students and work with them. There is a definite need for this. I get to use my skills in this way of service. I’m excited to do this.” Zoo Atlanta president and CEO, Dennis Kelly, presents a Rikard lecture.

Carillon Cover Stars Reunited Jodie-Anne Pessoa ’04 returned to campus recently and visited with Dr. Daniel Schadler, her Carillon co-star last fall.

Paul Hudson Book Signing Paul Hudson ’72 brought Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, Oglethorpe’s fifth president, back to campus. On the morning of October 28 in the Sheffield Suite, Hudson led a discussion of Jacobs’ book The Law of the White Circle on the 1906 Atlanta race riots. Long out of print, this is the only novel set during the infamous Atlanta race riot of 1906. The book explores the tensions that exploded over three days in September 1906 through the intertwined stories of a white journalist, a black college professor and an artist of mixed race who chooses to pass as white. The book includes an essay by Hudson, the recognized authority on former Oglethorpe President Jacobs. It also has supplementary readings by scholar W.E.B. DuBois and Walter White, destined for fame with the NAACP, both of whom lived in Atlanta in 1906.

Lindsey is an AmeriCorps volunteer on loan to Oglethorpe University through Hands On Atlanta to help the university gear up its civic engagement initiatives with the city of Atlanta. This partnership between Hands On Atlanta and the university is a first of its kind and came about through President Schall’s goal for the university to commit itself to community service. Each year, Hands On Atlanta trains volunteers from AmeriCorps, a network of local, state and national service programs that connects more than 70,000 Americans each year, in intensive service to meet the country’s needs in education, public safety, health and the environment. AmeriCorps members serve nonprofits, public agencies and faith-based and community organizations and now Oglethorpe University. Lindsey took part in the Schools Program of Hands On Atlanta, and most of her “class” was sent to schools in the Atlanta Public School system, tutoring and hosting after-school programs with inner-city children. Lindsey’s path veered off from that of her peers. President Schall contacted Hands On Atlanta executive director Tracy Hoover, who recommended Lindsey for this first-time role at Oglethorpe. October 7 was a big day for Lindsey. She coordinated Oglethorpe’s three projects for Hands on Atlanta Day, uniting our community with thousands of volunteers across the city. Oglethorpe participated in the Villages of East Lake, Centennial Place Elementary and Rivers Alive.


Faculty Profile

Karen Schmeichel New Tennis Facility a Boost to Both Players and Fans On the strength of donor support, Oglethorpe University unveiled a new tennis center in September that will be a boost to both players and spectators alike. The players, no doubt, will enjoy the new surfaces on all six courts made possible by a Permaflex paving system. Fans will be wowed by a new bench shade system and the construction of a beautiful gazebo that will provide views of the action taking place on all six courts. Jim Clower ’58 challenged other tennis alumni, and Joe Dennis ’69 chaired the campaign that raised a quarter of a million dollars for the renovation. The project includes road clearing and paving, new fencing, nets and retaining wall, repaving and painting of all the courts and the addition of a new windscreen. The renovation, done by Southeastern Tennis, comes just in time to celebrate what should be two of the most competitive men’s and women’s tennis teams in recent history. The most prominent reason for the Petrels’ rise at the nets is courtesy of a smooth-stroking South African,

Dr. Karen Schmeichel, Oglethorpe’s new assistant professor of biology, knows what it’s like for students unsure of their life paths. One of three new faculty members this year, Karen always had an interest in cellular biology but wasn’t sure which career track would best suit her. Luckily for her students, her “long training path” led her to experience science from many perspectives. By Hoyt Young

Eckhardt van der Linde ’07. Van der Linde ended last year by posting a nearly perfect season with a singles record of 22-1. During the course of the season, van der Linde’s ranking for the South region surged from 44th to 7th overall. Playing on the International Tennis Association’s summer circuit, van der Linde has made plenty of noise in the off-season by defeating a slew of Division I stars on full scholarships. In one particular tournament in Greensboro, North Carolina, van der Linde knocked off athletes from Virginia Tech, North Carolina and Furman in succession on his way to a semi-final finish. “Players of Eckhardt’s abilities are hard to find, and we are blessed to have him at Oglethorpe for one more year to watch him win with grace and class,” said head coach Peter Howell. “The addition of the new tennis center will elevate the tennis experience for players like Eckhardt and fans like myself to new heights.”

During her seven years of training for her doctorate, Karen learned that she enjoyed working with her colleagues in the lab, but “I always enjoyed teaching new students the ropes of the lab,” she added. “That was the first thought I had toward teaching.”

“I’ve been working toward a single goal of this cancer question,” she said, “but I’ve been in a variety of places. My focus may have been cellular biology, but I was aware of other aspects. I’m fortunate to have a broad understanding.” She hopes her knowledge base will translate to new ideas in the classroom. “I’m excited to bring some ideas from my research here, to maybe introduce new techniques or approaches to students,” said Karen. “My advisors always said innovation comes from where two fields meet, so I look forward to future discussions and collaborations.”

“I’m really happy to be at Oglethorpe. Having grown up at a liberal arts college, it’s great to be at a place that appreciates the big picture,” she said. “I think my husband is totally jealous of my job now.” As for her course load of genetics, cellular biology, developmental biology and general biology, Karen said, “The topics are diverse, but similar at the same time. I’ve got a sense of things that will be exciting to share with other people.” Karen will also be a student during her first year at Oglethorpe, sitting in on the natural science Core course she will begin

teaching next year. “I look forward to getting my feet wet in all areas at Oglethorpe,” she said. “Even when I went to graduate school, people thought students from smaller schools were more desirable. I want to help my students find their voice and ask questions. I certainly hope to be here for awhile and plan to invest myself into the teaching experience.” Ever an innovator and science promoter, Karen is ready to spread her excitement on the Oglethorpe campus.



After studying cellular biology at Middlebury College in Vermont, Karen spent two years as a research technician before heading to graduate school at the University of Utah. An interview during ski season drew the New Englander out West. “Winter sports are a big passion of mine,” said Karen, who played ice hockey at Middblebury.


Summer Grants


This summer eight faculty members were able to conduct research and finish projects thanks to the Schultz Foundation Summer Research Grants. Oglethorpe is a more enriched community because of this additional funding. DR. J. LYNN GEIGER, assistant professor of education, used her grant to conduct further research and prepare materials for future publication on the integration of music and mathematics in early grades and the role of mathematics in popular culture. DR. ROBERT HORNBACK, associate professor of English, traveled to Washington, D.C., to continue his ongoing work at the Folger Shakespeare Library, which included finishing four essays on topics that address long overlooked but ultimately significant comic traditions and additional research on the “godly comedy” produced by the Tudor evangelicals.

Karen did her post-doctoral work in general and cellular biology at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, where she focused on the cellular biology of breast cancer.

Karen also plans to expose students to Atlanta’s vast scientific community. “Most people I’ve worked with are ready to get people excited about science, so it’s not much of a stretch to call up a colleague and ask for help.”

Moving to Atlanta after her husband got a job with the CDC, Karen studied breast cancer at Emory for four years. For two years she worked at the CDC researching public perceptions of breast cancer from an epidemiological perspective and how environmental agents may contribute to cancer.

“The great thing about Oglethorpe is you may have a class of 20, but you can still connect with each student.” Adding her advice to students, Karen said, “Do good work, work hard and look at all your options. The best thing to do is to see what’s best for you. You’ve got to balance family and work to be happy.”

DR. REBECCA HYMAN, associate professor of English, completed revisions to her book Driven by Distraction: Why Progressives Must Disengage from the Conservatives and How They Can Rebuild Their Movement.

DR. ELIZABETH C. JOHNSON, associate professor of psychology, utilized her grant to complete two projects: research for a paper on her observations of drill baboons at Zoo Atlanta and a study of gender differences in completing spatial tasks. DR. PETER J. KOWER, associate professor of economics, worked with student researchers on a project to test economic theories relating to the long-run growth or stagnation of nations using the example of the Sweetwater Mill, an antebellum cotton mill. DR. ALAN LOEHLE, associate professor of art, used his grant for research into images that will ultimately lead to a new body of work on the issues of the human condition and the key themes of mortality, the physical body and unattainable desire. ANNE SALTER, librarian, worked with a colleague at Mercer University to create and implement a survey among undergraduate liberal arts students at both institutions to determine their reading habits and how trends in this area impact the collection development of undergraduate libraries. DR. WM. BRADFORD SMITH, associate professor of history, traveled to Bamberg, Germany, to conduct research for a book-length study on the Bamberg witch hunts entitled The Whole Armor of God: Witchcraft and the Thirty Years’ War in Bamberg 1616-1632.




ANGELA STALCUP ’03 Although Angela graduated from high school as class valedictorian, she did not pursue a traditional educational route. Moved by the suffering of women and children in the world, she decided to spend some time “saving the world” before continuing her education. She traveled to West Africa, the Caribbean, South America and Asia seeking ways to empower women. However, after 16 years of this work, Angela decided it was time to continue her educational path by obtaining a bachelor’s degree. At Oglethorpe, Angela embraced the college experience by getting involved in university life. She helped to create the Student Advisory Committee (SAC), a group representing the needs and concerns of evening students, and served as its president for two years. SAC works closely with the evening degree program director and the Evening Degree Program Council to sponsor student activities on campus.

A Balancing Act Adult Learners Juggle Family and Careers While Studying Many Oglethorpe students have more in common than they realize. The evening degree program, formerly University College, is comprised of working adults who are changing careers or returning to school. Sharing the struggle of balancing family life, school, work and other responsibilities, these students are part of a unique culture at Oglethorpe. The alumni profiled here have each celebrated great success following their time at Oglethorpe.

Angela completed her bachelor’s degree in three years, earning a place in the academic honorary society Alpha Chi and graduating summa cum laude with a communications degree in May 2003. She received the 2002–2003 University College Award and was co-recipient of the 2003 Sally Hull Weltner Award for Scholarship, the award for the highest grade-point average among graduates with Latin honors. After graduation, Angela participated as a panelist at the 2004 Conference on College Composition and Communication. She presented “Mediascapes, Embodiment and the Adult Learner,” a paper based on the body of work she created during her time at Oglethorpe. “I was familiar with the reputation of Oglethorpe as a prestigious liberal arts university, and the accelerated evening program seemed like it would be a perfect fit for me. All that remained was for me to step onto the quad — the beauty of the campus sealed my fate. I was completely in love. I knew that Oglethorpe would be my educational home,” says Angela. Her fondest memories involve the camaraderie of classmates and professors and the excitement of the collaborative learning environment. “Three years after graduating, I still maintain friendships with quite a few former classmates and professors. I was so impressed with Dr. Anne Rosenthal and the communications program that I changed my major after just one of her classes, and I enjoyed being able to take film and art history classes as I worked toward my degree.” “My degree has definitely impacted my career development,” says Angela, who is now the director of marketing for Steelcoat, LLC, an Alpharetta-based software company, and a partner in SmartFish, a small business incubator/think tank.

BILL MULLALLY ’02 Bill graduated magna cum laude in December 2002 with a degree in economics. Today, he is senior vice president for investments and an Omega portfolio manager with Oppenheimer and Co., Inc. In this role, he manages stock and bond investment portfolios for wealthy individuals, business owners and corporate executives. This year Bill became the first evening degree student to be appointed to Oglethorpe’s Board of Trustees. About his decision to return to school to finish his degree, Bill explains, “An Oglethorpe alum who is a good friend and mentor of mine was very supportive. His name is O.K. Sheffield (class of 1953), and he was instrumental in my attending Oglethorpe. I am very grateful for his friendship as well as his dedication and commitment to Oglethorpe.” Bill cites a class with Professor Brad Smith as his best memory at Oglethorpe. “It was a class on Renaissance history, and I really learned a lot and enjoyed the class. Brad is an excellent professor.” When asked where he sees himself in five years, Bill responds, “Professionally I expect to be doing the same thing that I am now. I have a great job, and I love the company I work for as well as the clients that I advise. Scholastically, I am contemplating getting an EMBA. Athletically, I hope to have my golf handicap in single digits; I am currently a 14. Personally, I hope to have done a great job as a father for my two daughters, Kate and Sara, as well as be lucky enough to remain married to my wife of 16 years, Karen. She is a patient woman.” Bill has been on Oglethorpe’s President’s Advisory Council and was a two-term member of the Georgia Film, Video and Music Advisory Commission. He is a member of the Technology Association of Georgia and co-founded the Technology in Entertainment special interest group. Bill has served on the board of IMAGE, a non-profit media arts organization, and on the steering committee for the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation Classic Golf Tournament. Bill maintains a membership at the Capital City Country Club and is an active member of Christ Church in Atlanta.



“The class of 2010 had their first chance to make a difference within the Atlanta community…”

of2010 As Oglethorpe’s class of 2010 arrived on campus on August 26, they were greeted by groups of returning students waiting to help fill newly renovated dorm rooms with clothes, microwaves, televisions, computers and a few stuffed animals – all the comforts of home. For the third year in a row, returning students came to campus early to help freshmen move into their rooms and find their way around their home away from home. The experience left quite an impression with the new students and parents. “I thought we’d be unloading all morning,” said one parent, much relieved. Many packed hand trucks along with the college necessities but left them happily untouched as student volunteers unloaded the cars into the freshmen rooms. “I really enjoyed having all the people help us,” said Katie Boone, a freshman from Huntsville, Alabama. “Everyone was really friendly. I felt bad that they had to carry all my stuff, but I was grateful to have the help. It was all really well organized, too.” As a member of the cross country team, Aaron Connolly helped his fellow classmates move in. “It went very well,” said the freshman from Florence, Alabama. “It was nice for them … a lot of work for us, but nice for them.”

Callie Crabb ’10

Freshmen moving into Traer Hall found new flooring, paint and furniture in their rooms. Although they may not have noticed, the upperclassmen certainly did. “I think they look infinitely better than they did,” said sophomore Laura Braddick, who lived in Traer last year. “The walls look fresh and the outside looks more sophisticated.” The class of 2010 had their first chance to make a difference within the Atlanta community the following morning with a clean-up project at PATH Academy, a charter school on the Oglethorpe campus. Over 200 students took the short walk to PATH and began washing windows, cleaning and repainting a fence, sorting books and planting flowers. While inside washing windows, Sydney Pigram, a freshman from Atlanta, found a classroom full of Japanese posters. “I was happy because I got to speak with one of the ESL teachers there,” she said. “She told me a lot about Japan, which is my minor. And the service was worth it, because those windows were really dirty.” Outside planting flowers, Boone enjoyed the camaraderie. “It was nice to have the friendly atmosphere to get to know people,” she said. “A friend of mine at Georgia Tech didn’t get to know his classmates as well because they didn’t have opportunities like this. Even the people who didn’t enjoy the projects as much had something to talk about.”

Continuing their Atlanta journey, students took their first trip in the OUr Atlanta program, connecting them with the city’s leading business and cultural organizations. At the Coca-Cola World Headquarters students were greeted by Alexander “Sandy” Douglas, Jr., who was appointed President and Chief Operating Officer of Coca-Cola North America the following day. Students visited the rarely seen 26th floor boardroom before heading downtown to experience the World of Coca-Cola at Underground Atlanta. “We got to see [Robert Woodruff ’s] office and the big boardroom,” said Connolly, the freshman from Florence. As an international studies and Spanish major, he appreciated the inside look into the global company. “It was pretty cool.” “It was amazing to have our own VIP reception,“ said Boone, the freshman from Huntsville. “It was great to try all the new drinks, have a little dessert and meet the people who work at Coke. I definitely feel more comfortable in Atlanta now. I came here from Alabama not knowing anything about Atlanta. Now I know people and how to get to the mall, the gas station, all that fun stuff. It was a great weekend” “Being from Atlanta, I had been to the World of Coke before, but I hadn’t done the tour at headquarters,” said Pigram. “You never really hear about your own city,

so it made me feel a little more connected and proud of where I’m from.” Orientation Weekend 2006 let students explore two strengths of Oglethorpe – its small, family like community and its connection to the city of Atlanta. Likewise, the class of 2010 contains some stellar examples of the typical Oglethorpe student. Take for example Mustafa Abdullah, a freshman who came to Oglethorpe from Winston-Salem, North Carolina, after spending two years at the Cairo American College in Egypt. While in Cairo, Mustafa volunteered at two very different orphanages through school. Despite difficulties with management and a lack of resources, Mustafa was able to reach out to the children. He recalls one instance where a five-year-old boy was describing his life in Arabic during an outing to the pyramids. Even though Mustafa only understood parts of what the boy was telling him he was struck by the emotional outpouring. “Through these eye-opening experiences, I have learned that the most important thing is not how I helped people or the community, but rather how they helped me to grow as an individual and appreciate the global community,” Mustafa said.

During his senior year of high school, in Winston-Salem, Mustafa was selected to represent the state of North Carolina at this summer’s National Student Leadership Conference. In one of the sessions, students were given situations and asked to react. “The first experience was similar to The Lord of the Flies,” Mustafa explains. “While we were discussing the situation within our group, I unconsciously became the leader.” Mustafa took the lead during Orientation Weekend as well, lending a hand at PATH Academy. “It was interesting to see that even though it wasn’t mandatory a lot of students came,” he said. “When you go and do service with a group of people, it’s a bonding experience. I met lots of people that morning that I have classes with now or see around campus. It made me feel more connected to the Oglethorpe community.” “It was a great statement on the part of the president and provost to be there working with the students,” he continued. “The project was good in showing the role Oglethorpe can and should play in the community by servicing less fortunate people.” Though service is important, Mustafa came to Oglethorpe for the Core Curriculum. “The emphasis on writing

prepares you for graduate work. The Core is pretty unique. It was the main thing that intrigued me about Oglethorpe,” he said. Mustafa is taking an interdisciplinary approach to his studies as well, considering a double major in psychology and philosophy with some religion courses added to the mix. After graduating, he may go into psychological research, clinical trials or teaching. As he noted on his application essay, he has an “unquenchable thirst for knowledge.” “I’m extremely pleased with the profile of this class,” said Lucy Leusch, vice president for enrollment and financial aid. “The caliber of student is excellent, the mean SAT and ACT score both increased as did mean high school grade-point average and diversity remains strong. More students enrolled from outside of Georgia, broadening our geographic reach.” This year 39% of the freshman class came from other states and countries. Leusch and her staff hope to increase geographic and ethnic diversity while building enrollment for next fall’s freshmen class. The expanded admission staff already has a full travel schedule to recruit the class of 2011 to Atlanta’s liberal arts university.



alumni alert

Christiana Johnson ’06, Joe Shelton ’91 and President Schall at the 2006 Alumni Awards Banquet.

Dear Alumni,


Feeding off the momentum and success of the last academic year, your alma mater is not resting on its laurels and is well on its way to another fantastic year. Please make sure you do not miss out.

“Mark your calendars now for Alumni Weekend, coming March 31 – April 1, 2007. Last year, we set new attendance records for Alumni Weekend with over 500 people …”

We celebrated Alumni Fall Sports Weekend October 27 – 29. This weekend began a few years ago with the John P. Salamone Alumni Soccer Tournament, but has now grown to include alumni participating in a volleyball tournament. President Schall hosted a welcome reception. We went back to the classroom. Many attended a performance of Othello at Georgia Shakespeare. Alumni and parents alike filled the field house for a pre-season jamboree in celebration of Petrel basketball. In addition to all the alumni activities, the university also welcomed parents to campus to experience Oglethorpe for themselves. Many parents enjoyed the opportunity to better get to know their child’s university on a personal level, whether sitting in on a class, visiting Greek Row’s open house or watching the Petrels take on the Trinity Tigers in soccer. Make sure you don’t miss the next great weekend on campus. Mark your calendars now for Alumni Weekend, coming March 31 – April 1, 2007. Last year, we set new attendance records for Alumni Weekend with over 500 people coming back to participate in the festivities! Plans are underway now to ensure that this year’s events top last year’s success. Visit (keyword: alumni weekend) for details. If you have not been to campus recently, you will be amazed at the changes. Beautification efforts and improvements have made an already wonderful campus even more outstanding. Also, the hum of bulldozers off the Ho Chi Minh Trail signals that the construction of the new residence halls is underway with the opening scheduled for fall 2007. In closing it will be another great year, and we hope you will be a part of it. As always, please let us know if you have any suggestions for the Alumni Association or if you want to get more involved. My contact information is below, or you may contact Barbara Bessmer Henry ’85, director of alumni relations, at or 404-364-8443. Joe Shelton ’91 President of National Alumni Association 404-240-4259

Donor Profile

Jay Williams ’99 By Mark DeLong ’03

Ask Jay Williams ’99 why he supports Oglethorpe, and the auditor at Miller Ray Houser & Stewart LLP, lists a number of reasons. “First of all, that’s how I was raised,” he says over lunch near his Buckhead office. Jay, born in Houston and raised in Johnson City, Tennessee, remarks that his father recently had a baseball field named after him for his years of volunteer service. “I also think of Norm Findley,” an Oglethorpe trustee and father of Jay’s close friend Brian Findley ’99. “There’s a guy I truly respect, and to see him so involved at Oglethorpe really inspired me to get involved with the school.” “Third, the school’s motto – Make a Life. Make a Living. Make a Difference. Obviously the education’s great. With the new president, there’s a lot of potential.” At Oglethorpe, Jay studied accounting, was in Sigma Alpha Epsilon and played soccer for four years. He remains connected with the school, acting as a class agent, helping to organize SAE’s 35th reunion last spring and serving on the SAE Housing Corps. Jay supports the Oglethorpe Fund through the Carillon Giving program, where a set amount is donated every month from a checking account or credit card. “I wanted to give at a level I could fit within my budget,” he says. “It’s nice to spread it out over the year. And you don’t have to think about it. It’s a great way to give. I don’t foresee cancelling it.” “You give back because we as students benefited from all the people at OU – faculty, staff and past alumni. It’s self-serving,” he explains. “By giving, you make your alma mater better. With the changes happening now we need help more than ever, be it time or money. We’ve got momentum. Oglethorpe’s a great school, but it can be even better with our help. Participation is just as important as the amount you give,” he notes. “You don’t have to give $1,000. Give $5. Giving back at any level will make a difference.” Jay earned his MBA from Georgia State University a few years after graduating from Oglethorpe. He noticed a marked difference in the educational environments. “The hands-on personal attention you get from Oglethorpe’s faculty – you don’t see that paralleled anywhere else.” “My career may change, I may relocate in the future, but I’ll always have strong relationships [with classmates and faculty]. That’s what keeps me coming back.”

Reminisce on Athletics

Elmer George ’40, B.C. Crowell ’44, Jeanne Fuller Schmidt ’42 and O.K. Sheffield ’53 remember their college days.

On August 15, Alumni Director Barbara Bessmer Henry ’85 invited Elmer George ’40, Jeanne Fuller Schmidt ’42, B.C. Crowell ’44 and O.K. Sheffield ’53 back to campus for an oral history project. The four reminisced about their time on campus and the glory days of Oglethorpe athletics. Crowell and George played football with O.K.’s brother, Ernest Sheffield ’41. George was also a member of the baseball, basketball and cross country teams.

“I remember sitting in the stands at a game and asking someone why it took them so long in the huddle,” recalled Schmidt. “They had so many languages, it would take them awhile to translate for everyone.”

Bell ’88

“Football brought me and my family to Oglethorpe,” said Sheffield.

Schmidt and her late husband, “Mr. Oglethorpe” Stephen J. Schmidt ’40, were strong athletic supporters. “Any time any thing was going on here, he’d say, ‘Let’s go!’ We came out to all the events. I’d met Schmidty here, so we had a double reason. I came, I stayed and I conquered. And it conquered me!”

“Athletic support was strong,” noted Crowell. “We had a good football team and a great baseball team – a lot of people didn’t want to play us.”

“The things I have accomplished in my life,” George added, “I certainly could not have done without Oglethorpe. The faculty prepared me immensely.”

Although George had never played football before, he tried out for the Oglethorpe team. “We didn’t have the largest numbers playing, but the camaraderie was amazing,” he said.

Crowell echoed those remarks, advising current students to “pick up everything you can pick up here and distribute that across your career, because it’s meant a lot to me.”

Faculty: Ranked #15 in the Nation Alumni have always ranked Oglethorpe’s faculty as top-notch. Now one of the most prestigious higher education publications has followed suite. In rankings released in August, The Princeton Review placed Oglethorpe’s faculty #15 on the national Professors Get High Marks list, putting them at the top of Georgia schools. In The Best 361 Colleges Oglethorpe was also listed as one of the 146 Best Southeastern Colleges and ranked #14 on the Class Discussions Encouraged List. Academically The Princeton Review described Oglethorpe as “an intimate education.” A student was quoted to say, “Classes at Oglethorpe challenge us to think and introduce us to new concepts. Thanks to our Core program, these concepts often build upon one another, so that I feel like my education is really coming together.” The student body is described as “intelligent and want[ing] to learn. Their objective is often not ‘career prep’ but more of becoming a learned person.” The “Inside Word” written by The Princeton Review states, “It won’t be long before the academic strength found at Oglethorpe attracts wider attention and more applicants . . . Go to Atlanta for a campus interview – you’ll leave impressed.”

Dr. Cassandra Copeland, Associate Professor of Economics, and Dr. Brad Stone, Professor of Sociology, are two members of Oglethorpe’s nationally ranked faculty.

History of

Hermance By Laura Masce

Though many people pass by Hermance Stadium on Peachtree Road, probably very few know the history of this beautiful and unique sports arena. For several years after the 1916 opening of Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, there was no place on campus for the athletic teams to compete. The football team practiced on a piece of land that was once a cornfield. They were always without a home field advantage, constantly traveling to other universities for games. The lack of a sporting venue would change under the direction and vision of Dr. Thornwell Jacobs, who wanted a stadium to support Oglethorpe’s athletics that would mirror the architecture of the other “Silent Faculty” on campus. Dr. Jacobs desired for the Oglethorpe architecture to be “a constant source of delight and inspiration to its students, teaching quietly but surely the highest ideals of life,” as he wrote in the 1931 Bulletin. Though Dr. Jacobs had a dream of a stadium, he had to find monetary support to help build it.

The future Hermance Stadium had its beginning in the early days of 1919, when Dr. Thornwell Jacobs led a group of 20 football players into the Atlanta office of the Oglethorpe supporter and benefactor Harry Putnam Hermance (1867 – 1937). The football players then attempted to incite Mr. Hermance’s interest in their need for a field. Several months later at a 1919 football banquet, Hermance and his wife, Sibyl Eloise, made an announcement, surprising everyone including Dr. Jacobs with the fact that they were donating $50,000 for a new Oglethorpe field and stadium. Because of their generosity, the students asked the board of directors to name the future stadium Hermance Field in the family’s honor. A field was completed in 1921, and the first football practice on Hermance Field occurred on the afternoon of September 12, 1921. By 1929, plans and additional financing for the actual stadium were underway. The university commissioned local architects Morgan, Dillon and Lewis to construct the first section of the stadium, with walls of blue Elberton granite, trimmed with limestone.

During the summer of 1929 the first section of Hermance Stadium, which seats about 5,000, was erected at a cost of over $100,000. During the October dedication game of the new stadium, Oglethorpe successfully defeated Dayton University, 20-12. The stadium is much the same today as it was at its completion in 1929. Though Hermance Stadium was originally built as a football field, in more recent years it has been converted into a baseball field, named Anderson Field after Coach Frank B. Anderson, and is used by the Petrels’ baseball team, which will celebrate 90 years at Oglethorpe in 2007. More than 75 years after its establishment, Hermance Stadium is still what Thornwell Jacobs dreamed it would be — an enduring structure of beauty that provides a space for Oglethorpe athletics to flourish.
