Loyolans Wayne Limberg, John Jackson, Gerald Ingham and Brother John Rasor displayed their academic skill on the NBC Broadcast of the GE College Bowl, April21, 1968. The collegiate quiz show hosted by Robert Earle featured Loyola University of Los Angeles head to head with the University of Chicago. With just six minutes left in the game, the Loyolans lead 120-80, but the Chicagoans doubled their score in the remaining minutes to win 160-120. Nevertheless, the team is still an expression of the long legacy of academic excellence which continues to inspire the contemporary students of Loyola Marymount University to reach higher by turning everything into a true learning experience.

Jennifer Cummings Looking back at her four· years at LMU, Jennifer , . Cummings does not quite know how she got here. l~ntermg colle••e as an English majo•·, sht! mu·ollt~d in elementary Lalit~, because~ the Spanish dass she wantt~d was full. "On th(~ first day of class, I remember D1·. Crawfonl saying that classics would c hange our lives," says Cummings. A double major in classic:s and English lite.-ature, Cummings says classics is like taking het· vitamins. "The work is difficult , definitely, but I think it's good for me. It tcaehes me discipline-and humility." Cummings also ct·edits her experiences in the close-knit, supportive department with helping her to find the courage and confidence to mal<e het· mark on the LMU c:ampus aspresident of both Gryphon Cirde and Sigma Tau Ddta (the national English hmwrs sodety) , and as a member of tht~ honors pt·ogram and Alpha Sigma Nu. Next year, she will attend graduate sc:hool on the east coast and wm·k for he•· Ph.D. in classics to bec:ome a pwfcsso•· evcmtually. "I hopt~ one day to impact stmlcnts the way Dr. Dillon and Dr. Crawford have influenc:cd me."

Led by the chairs of the history departments at Santa Clara and UCLA, the history department was assessed to determine where changes could be made to improve the LMU program. In 01·der to help students find jobs after grad uation, the department

sponsored a career night. Six LMU alumni with executive positions in the record and movie industry, all of whom had majored in history, spoke to students about their careers as

well as jobs for history majors in general. The department also organized a successful student colloquium, "War and Remembrance," which took place in the fall of 1996 and featured students reading historical documents of war experiences ranging from the time of Homer to the Vietnam War. Planning for the futu•·e was the focus of the philosophy department, headed by department chair Dr. Linda Zagzebski. During the 1995-96 school year, LMU hosted the annual meeting of the American Catholic Philosophical Association, of which Zagzebski is president. Over the past year, the department was busy planning for a major philosophical conference to be held on campus in fall 1998. According to Zagzebski, the conference's theme, practical reasoning, is one "that appears in philosophical writings of all periods." Five world •·enowned philosophers will be speaking at the conference, including Martha Nussbaum of the University of Chicago Law School and Charles Taylor of McGill University in Montreal. The department looks forward to endowing a chair fot· a faculty

It also hopes to establish another endowed chair in order to invite a prominent outside philosopher to teach at LMU for one semester each academic year. The classics depat·tment's main objective is to bring the ancient wodd back to life using

traditional methods, such as the study of Latin and Greek, and more contemporary approaches, like focusing on the history of the ancient world. The department plans to do so with the aid of a $405,000 grant given to the department by the National Endowment for the Humanities in Januat·y of 1997. The grant

Dr. Graciela Limon, chait· of the d e partment of Chicano studies, is vet·y excited about the n e w courses and options for majors a nd minors within the department during the 1996-97 academic year.

"We are vet·y proud to be a part of the 11ew American cultu t·es community of ethnic prog r a m s at LMU such as African American Studies and Asian and Pacific Studies," said Limon. "Our hope for the future is to be more successful in brin gi ng in a wider range of students." The department of women's studies is guaranteed to grow with its conti nual increase in ct·oss-listed courses over a broad range of the LMU cuniculum.

College of Business Looks to the Future • New programs and high-tech equipment help teachers train students for an ever-evolving world BY R YAN RILLORTA Section Editor

ne year after the opening of O the Conrad Hilton Bus iness Building, the College of Business Admini str·ation has not hesitated in utilizing the important resources provided by the new facilities. Home to roughly 1,000 busin ess administr·ation majors, the Hilton building boasts stateof-the-art classrooms and study room s equipped with laptop computer ports for both LMU-Net and I ntcrnet access. In addition to


There are a lot of group projects that let you get to know everyone else in the department which, because of its small size, is rather closeknit. - Susan Goldner Senior, Business


Internet access in every classroom, th<' building is the nerve center of the ca mpus network of networks, the campus "backbone," which is maintained by the Information Services, electronically bringing the outside wol'ld to LM U and, more importantly, bringing LMU to the outside world. In this same vein, cour·ses in of information systems a nd quantitative methods <ISQM> are becoming increasingly important in the sometimes quixotic quest of keeping abreast with the rapid advancement in computers, networks and information technology. ISQM students arc trained in data analysis and the many a pplications found through-


out the modern business world. Faculty have facilitated and improved studen tlteacher communication by putting important material such as syllabi and classroom handouts on the Web. whete stu dents arc able to retrieve such information with just a few mouse clicks from any of the several on-campus computer labs available for all students. This focus on b1·inging LMU into the com petitive economic arena of the 21st century has led to the advent of a progra m designed to make LMU a mujo1· player in the Pacific Rim. A new program bringing Taiwanese managers to study in an intensive one-year MBA pr·og1·am brought 16 new s tudents across the globe to study in a program designed to prepa1·e stu dents for the fast· paced world of international business. "There are people all over the world who are clamoring for that coveted MBA degree." said Dr. John Wholihan. Dean of the Coll ege of Business Administration. "We wanted a progmm to bring that degree to people in a cohort group." The program was special ly tailored for the needs of the international students, who began the program in the s pring semester. Dr. William Lindsey, who des igned the prog1·am, commented, "It is also oriented towar·d s more s trategy-level courses. The fundamental core courses have been achi eved through experience." Another essential component of the College of Business Administration, the accounting program, is geared to challenge future accou ntants with rigorous coursework. While the pr·ogr·am cu n be taxing on students, the hard work pays ofT'. Students who com plete the p1·ogram have a chance at on-campus interviews with Big S ix accounting firms, private compan ies and government agencies who come to recruit graduating seniors. Finance is th e life lin e of business, it comprises essential iss ues such as funds , capital


Dr. John Wholihan, Dean of the College of Business Administration budgeting and working capital management. Students pursuing finance lear·n the busi n ess of budgeting, banking. and inves tment. Many students who gra· duate from LMU with a fin ance background will take positions in business, such as real estate. ins urance, and health care. The marketi ng emphasis in the business college has developed ways to help students get experience outside of the classroom to t·ein f'o1·ce what they have learned in textbooks. One such experience is the annual Manitoba Mar·keting Competition. For the past two ycar·s, students have participated in a general marketing strategy simulation. in which students plan a mm·keting strategy for a simulated industry over the course of one semester. Students from Germany to Australia come togethe1· annually in Winapeg, Ca nad a to JH'esent their work. This year, the LMU

team included Matt Long, Lori Nealy, Nooshin Farahpour·, and was headed by Dr. Renee Flor·s heim. "'l'he competition was helpful to our !;tudents because it put them in a position to compare how they put. together marketing plan s against students from around the world. It helped them raise their consciousness about the difl'cr·ent. s trategies and level of competition used by oth er univer·sities, making tlwm better p1·epured for· the job market," commented Flot·sheim. 'l'he program emphasizes important extrucuniculm· opportunities such as intemships to help students gain va lu able experience in their· r·espective field s. This hands-on approach to m:u·keting with respect to outside experience trains stud ents i n everythi ng fr·om preliminary market research to the best ways to reach people and planning promotional events for a pl'Oducl.

"There arc u lot of group projects that let you get to know everyone else in the department which, because of its small size. is ratlH!I' close-knit. I was given a h11g every time I walked into my clas~;," commented 8cnior Susan Goldnet·. "Marketing prepat·es you to sell anything, which is a good thing since most jobs are in sales. lt also trains yo u how to sell yo urse lf, which is an essential part of today's business world.'' One of the most sought-afte r classes offct·cd by the department is the entrepreneurialship class taught by Dr. !~re d Kiesner. In this class, students a rc given the difficult task of creating theit· own startup company , which entails setting up th e company. gett ing initial loans. determining how the business will opemte, and finally, making a prese ntation to tlw class. With the combined elfot·ts of

l<iesnc r and several students with the drive to become entr e preneurs. t he Entrepre-neurial Society was t·ccenily formed.

cd by talented professors, L LMU's College of Communications and Fi nc Arts guarantees its students a wellrounded academic experience and a solid pr·epamiion I'm· postgraduate work. Students' enthusiastic energy drives the college to excel in the cr·eative process. "All our students have hands-on experience," said 1'om Kelly, dean of the department. "We em phasize the doing and the making of art. lt isn't just theoretical. Every stude nt has

lo do what is the equivalent of a

thesis whether they are undergraduate or graduate, and that makes a big differ·ence." D1·. Bob Ackley, chair of the theater arts and dance department, takes pride in the many and varied accomplis hments of his students and alumni. "We have some who are acting here in Los Angeles, and some working as professional stage managers on Bl'oadway," Ackley said. "We have them in announcing, talent agencies, and law firms. The theater background g ives them a strong enough background in so many


different m·eas that they do well in whatever endeavor· they choose." Theater and dance g raduates get the hands-on performance experience necessary, which inst.i lis confidence and commitment.. "'!'hey can do any job that's handed to them," Ackley added. "They can hang lights and pound nails. The LMU student in the professional lield has a very good r·eputation becau se they' r e not afraid of getting their hands dir·ty." The pr·og1·am is unique in that any undergraduate at any level has the opportunity to per·form in the department's major theatrical productions. The enthusiasm generated by the theater and dance depar·t ment centers a round performances. 'fhis yea r the department produced Piel'l'e Co rn eille's The Illusion, Tennessee Williams' Cal on a Hot Tin Roof, and Neil Simon's Tir e Odd Couple. Students w<~rc involved in evcr·y step of the pr·oduction process, from acting and designing to stage management and const.ruction. The dance department invited professional guest ar· t.ists to choreograph number·s for its Evening of Concer·t. Dance and the Student Dance Concert. ''We' re very pr·ocessoriented," Ackley exp lain ed. "The pcr·formance is just icing on the cake." In addition to th e theater arts department offerings, students can also explor·c the theater wit.h the Del Rey Players, on e of LMU's oldest. campu s organ i zation s. '!'he students who, when they were children, organized the res t of the neighborhood kids in imprompt.u plays, using bicycles and lawn furniture as scene ry, grow up to be Del Rey Playcr·s. Working out of the Wine Cellar Theater, a tiny black box in the corner of the Foley Building, the Del Roy Players pr·oduce an independent season of theater; with no par·ental supervision whatsoever, t.hey

The company's 65th season opened with a prod uction of sophom01·e Sara Tarbert's br·ight adaptation of Jane Au s t en's Pride and Prejudice, follow ed by William Mastrosimone's tense drama Extremities. ln the spring, the Players produced Larry Shue's brilliant comedy T he Nerd, as well as Hair: the American Tribal LouP·Rocll Musical . The linal production of the season was Death and th e Maiden, a tightly-wound thriller by Ariel Oorfmann. The Del R ey Players also organized two important. annual pr ojects: the Masq u e r ade Bnll benefit for the AIDS Quilt, and what is pel'haps the company's mo st. impo1·tant project., the Student Playwrights F estival, which brings the work of LM U students to t.he stage.

that wotking night and day to create from scratch requires passion and retur·ns satisfaction. LMU music major·s can look for·wal'd to valuable expe 1·ience in performing at the many concerts held by the music department. each year. Not only are s t.udent.s technically trained, but they can achieve a deep level of h u rna n ex pression thi'Ough performance. "l';vcn thou gh we're small, we're a very visible department beca use of the fact that. it's a perfotrnance department," said chair Dr. Mary Breden, director of the LMU choruses. "Students have expectations for a high level of quality." The fact that the music JHogram docs not include a g raduate division attract.s instead of discourages undergraduate students.

Brede n comm e nte d, "Stude nts discover wha t it is to be human with the whole heart and soul that goes into mu s ic making .

CFA: from page 55 skill s until, of cou r se, the inevitable happ e n s an d new wo rk s tations are in s t a ll e d to k ee p up with t h e r ap id ly evolving field of digitnl art. and production. As chair, Goode ensures that instr·uctors are professionals from the industry who are familiar with the latest tech no logy, so they can instruct their s tude n t s with the neccssar·y skills to keep up with the breakneck field of computer art and be able to contin ue marketing their work. St ud en t art is show n regularly in LMU's Laband Art Ga ll e ry, which alsp ex hibits both local ar tists. In November , Assistant P rofessor· of Art and Art Hi story, Jan e Brucker, commissioned her beginning art students to copy the paintings of Modigliani, a r·e nowned artist. Th ei r work was featured in a play na med after the a rtis t. and performed by t he Buffalo Nights Th ea t e r Company. Dr . Ro n Marasco, assistant professor of theater and dance, directed and starred in this play. As one w h o has p r eviously taught. at loca l professional sch oo ls, Goode sees the advantages of a l ibe ra l arts ed ucation. "The old notions of a career are pretty much broken down in modern times, especially within the arts. Very few people have a career , but a se r ies of careers. Any a rti s t's work itself is going to go through some fairly r·adical


phases. A designer has to be a psychologist i n d eal ing with science, an artist, and a bus iness person." some LMU Al thoug h gradua tes may experience a low star·ting sa lary compared to students from professional schools, Goode said , "They have mo r e stay ing power and s ubs t ance, a nd so they shou ld pr·eva il and be more apt t o become entrep reneurs. So the broad education really pays off, especially the longer· you tr·ack the students." The department of communication arts, b oasting ove r· 650 studen t s, 19 full-time fa c ulty members, 45 parttimers, and a technical staff of fiv e, is one of th e bu s iest departments in the unive rs ity. " I'm m anager of a sma ll business here," said Patricia Oliver , department ch air. "We turn stude nts away at a time when other universit ies arc wanting students. We actually have more applicants here than we can manage." Com muni catio n arts encom p asses screenwriting, television production, film pr·oduction, recording arts, and communication studies. In all of these tracks, students ar·e r·equire d to complete a sen ior thesis project from concept to a finished product-a screenplay, television video, film, m ultit rack recording, or professional internship. In the heart of Los Angeles, the opportunities for students in these fi e ld s are

Undergraduate Research is on the Rise • CSE: emphasizes

student professor interactwn. BY R OBERT R oJAS



ha rged with oversee ing the C a pproximately 750 s tudents mujoring in its ten dep<u·tmcnts, Dean Gera ld J akubow!:ki again shou ldered t he weight of administering and developing t he College of Science a nd I<:ngineering in all as pects of its operation. Together with his gifted fCJculty, Dr. Jakubowski has brought the College nea r to perfection this fl c ndem ic year in all of its dep<~rtm e nts. This year, the College continued with its emphasis on undergraduate research projects. Students worked feverishly alongside faculty members, endlessly toiling on major r esea r ch proj ects in various scie nces- biom edicine, ge netics, fi eld biology, physical chemistry, and other areas. After the res ults


Knowing that we are making a positive impact on our students is compensation enough. - Dr. Tina Choe Professor, Biology Department


of these projects are calculated , students are sent to various regional, national and international \mdcrgraduate resea rch confe rences to 1wesent their findings. Last year, approximately 1.5 students were sent to t he National Co ll eg iate Undergrad uate Research Conference in Asheville, North Carolina, and th is year the numhcr is expected to increase. Biology depar t m cn~ chair M ichnel Danciger, :1 professor of


mi crobiology and mol ecular genetics, is proud of of the growth in his department in rcccnl years. Dr. Da nciger has pus hed for more fac ully involve ment in research, and commends his department's facu lty for being available to s tudents, providing a constructive lea rning e nvironm ent in the classroom. and allowing s tudents to beco me more involved in their research. "We are also h opin g to get more technical a nd support staff in order to aid our great effort in research and teaching," said Dr. Da nciger. The de partmcnL's future pl a ns include renovating an d building new research labs for stude nts and faculty fund ed with g r a nt money from the l{cck F oundation and t h e National Science Poundation. Last summer, Biology professors Tina Choe an d James Landry conducted resea rc h with local students from St. Bernard High School as part of an e igh t- week summer progra m c<JIIed Proj ect SEED (Project Summer gducational Experience for t h e Economically Disadvantaged). "We're trying to give high school stu de nts from economically disadvantaged backg rounds opportunities to see what it is like to conduct research and expand their views of science," sa id Dr. Choe . Both professor s worked with the hi gh school students on research projects that would likely be conducted only by college j uniors and seniors at most ot her universities. Although neithe r· LMU professor received any extrn compe nsation for participa ting in the project., Dr. Choe was hap py to participate, "l<nowing that we are makin g a positive impact on students is compensation e nough for Dr. Lnndry and me." As chnir of both the g)ectrica l Engineering and Compute r Science de partme nts, Dr. John Pngc has seen steady growth in his arcn. For the past 15 years, the departments h;we been g radually increasing the number of bachelor's and m1•slcr's degrees they award. Given these rising num bers, professors arc being fo rced to deal wit h la r ge r numbers of s tudents in thei r classes and having to divid<' their time


Dean of the College of Science and Engineering Dr. Gerald Jakubowshi. acco1·dingly. ThesE! de partments arc careful to keep t he persona l touch between the s tudent ;:.nd the professOI'. A new addition to the department this year is Dr. Barbara Schmitz, the lirst and only femal e facul ty member in the cicclrical engineering department. The computer science department's new project for the fall of 1997 is a series of six computer and mul timedi a classes, which will be integnttod into t h e Coll ege's curriculum. "We are almost. finish ed with putting togethe r a multimedia curriculum which we h ope will be in terdisci pl inary, invol ving the College of Communication and Fine Arts," said Dr. Philip M. Dorin, a professor in the compute r science department. With approximately s ix new courses, the curri culum would include classes from basics of the Wor·ld Wide Web to advanced computer programming and computer grap hics. The department also hopes to bu ild a new lab which would contain t he latest computer and multimedia equ ipm e nt to acco mmodate t he

instruction of these courses. This year, the depa r tment of mechanical engineering was hard at work. Depa rtment chnir Or. Rafiqui\ Noora ni h elped facilitate LMU s tud ents' e ntrance into the licld by exposing them to national conferences and design competitions in fi elds as diverse as aero-design and mini-baja off road vehicles. Over the last six years, he has seen 67 LMU s tude nts sent to various national conferences to prese n t their findin gs. These presentations could not h ave been facili tated without the department's modern laboratories. which arc equipped with th e latest specialized equipm ent, includ ing computer controlled data acquisition system:>, robotics systems, and machinery. On e e xcit ing project thnt mechnnical e ngin eering majors have undcrtnken is the SAE Formula Cur program.

These studies in prototyping will e n a ble both LMU stud e nts and t h e Northrop Grumman Corpora t ion to und e r s tand a nd compete in t h e ever-changing ma rketplace. Likewise, Dr. Mich ael Mulvhill, chair of the civi l e n g in eerin g d epa rtm e nt , provides und e r gra duate E ngineering stud ents with opportunit ies to ma k e contacts in th e e n g in ee rin g industry and

James Landry , chemistry professor, was honored with this award for his "Experimenting in Science" project, also Dr. Scott Wright und Dr. Dennis Zill in lh<' mathematics department Wl'rc honored with the award fo r "Oi fferential Equations." OthN grant recipi ents included Dr·. Suzanne Larson and Dr. Thomas Zacariah, also in the moth department were recognized for "Introduction to Probability and Statistics." Through Loyola Maryrnount's core curriculum students gain an oppr·eciation fm· the arts, sciences, philosophy, religion, and hi~tory;


the elements which have shaped our world and its various cultures. However, the College of Science and Engineering has made extraordinary contributions. Its first rate teachers, superb facilities, and strong connections to the industrial, environmenta l, and scientific organizations have henefited its students by solidly grounding them in their technical disciplines. Over the past three years, 65'i! of LMU applicants have gained cnt.ry to medical schools, and virt.ually 100'ii or applicants have been accepted for other health-related professional schools such as dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, a nd optometry. This percentage shows that LMU's gifted faculty arc directly involved with students ond their work and do not just lecture for hour·s at a ti me.

In 1952, Loyola U niversity staged a military faire for Commencement Ceremonies that honored soldiers killed or wounded in the Korean War. As one of the last grad uating classes of the Twentieth century, seniors must keep abreast with a world that relies increasingly on a growing technological and communication oriented intl路astructure. To prepare to lead coming generations as degree holding professionals in their chosen fields requires a background in many different yet divergent areas. Consequently, more students arc graduati ng with an em phasis in international studies, developing fluency in foreign tongues and learnin g the ins and outs of changing technologies so that the legacy they leave for subsequent generations and their peers worldwide is as diverse and sophisticated as The Class of 1997 .

Applying that traditio n in his own life, C hris started the Admissions Peer Advisor Program in 1994, which has been instrumental in giving hundreds of potential LMU students campus tours, recruiting high school students, and providing mentors during the application process. â&#x20AC;˘ The sense of loyalty and brotherhood that C hris found in Sigma C hi attracted him to the fraternity in 1992 .

After taking over a 20ycar break to pursue a musical career with his '60s pop band, 17'1e Turtles, Mark returned to LMU as a full -ti me student at age 46. Led by his passion for singing, he became a member of the LM U Concert Choir and has assisted in numerous projects for the Music Department. • After graduating Magna Cum Laude in Recording Arts, Mark plans to attend graduate school to attain a masters in educational psychology. He hopes to teach at the university level because he feels that he can relate to the students easily. • One of Mark's most memorable experiences at LMU is his involvement in the Sigma Phi Epsilon ti·aternity. "My frat brotJ1ers never treated me like I was their father," he commented. "They made me feel just like one of them." -Michele Tmgco




' ' Itnet Mark a couple of years ago, and was n1uch struck by this person who can1e back to do his undergraduate degree. He was a Turtle, and I think I a1n the only college president in AI11erica that has six CDs of The Turtles sitting on his desk. He is a delight to work with and has expanded n1y horizon a great deal. Mark has also been a \vonderful asset to LMU, as well." -Father Thomas P. O )Malley) S.J.) University President

mike martindale 128

resno native Mike Martindale can frequently be see n around campus laughing and smiling. What is unique about Mike is not the many different roles he has o n campus, but the positive attitude he emits. • Through various leadership positions such as Crimson Circle President and EPIC Special Projects Manager, Mike encourages community involvement whil e also guidi ng numerous students toward future career plans. • Reflecting o n his four years at LM U, Mike says his first dorm room ·was an important place for him. It was where it all began- his dreams, his aspirations, and his plans to achieve them. And he certainly has a lot to be proud of. • Mike defines his personality as, "a dictionary. Everything is in there, but I still have to search for it."


-Michele Tcngco

I'll never live that down, and I know our vet has never forgotten it, either."

Whether it is her involvement with the Los Angeles city-wide chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, her diligence in pursuing degrees in both English and African American Studies, or her continuous commitment to helping minori ty stu dents succeed academically through the Office of Black Student Services, Darice has proven that she can accomplish any goal. • In her four years, Darice has been elected by her peers and administrators to many positions of leadership such as President of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Sigma Chapter and Academic Persistence Program Coordinator for OBSS, and she has also received the prestigious Minority Leadership Scholarship Award. •She attributes her positive attitude to her mother's constant words of inspiration during her child hood and adolescent years.

ark Altman never gives up. A self-proclaimed over-achiever, Mark bas managed to balance a busy senior year including such roles as serving as ASLM U vice president of public relations, film editor for the Loyolan, senior thesis author, and dean's list student all at the same time. • With a passion for politics and a love for the cinema, Mark is graduating with a degree in political science but is hoping to make a living as a screenwriter. • Mark credits his stepfather t()r teaching him never to throw in the towel, never to back down from things he truly believed in. • Life, Mark feels, is what one makes of it. Because of his continued persistence and hard work, we can all look for Mark to make a huge box office success. -Clare Climaco

To his credit, Mark is one of those students who, when a teacher asks one of those unanswerable questions and the entire class gives you that 'what is he talking about' look, always comes to the rescue and at least tries to give an answer. You will never know how much a teacher appreciates that! Mark isbut don't tell him I said so-a joy to have in class, and he will be missed.

amily, fa ith, love and God. These have been the constants that have guided Elsy Arevalo's lite journey. • Fond childhood memories of going to the chapel before classes began at an all-girls Catholic school were early signs of Elsy's faith journey. • When she and her family came to Los Angeles in 1989 to celebrate Christmas with relatives, as they did every year, Elsy was surprised to fi nd that this year \Vas different; unexpectedly, her parents decided to make L.A. their permanent home. • The sudden move was a difficult transition for Elsy, but as she looked forward to beginning her college career at LMU, she resolved to make the best of the situation. And she certainly has. • She has immersed herself in a wide range of activities- community service through the Gryphons, and as a resident advisor, involvement in various Campus Ministry events and projects such as the Sophomore Junior Emmaus Retreat, and the initiation of drug and alcohol prevention programs such as Cheers. • For Elsy, the past four years have been an exciting, revealing journey of self-discovery that has led her to realize that her family, her faith, her love for others and love to r God have made her the woman she is today. -Glare Climaco


' ' M y first day of classes freshman year I was really excited. I got up early, changed a couple of times, enjoyed the day and tried to meet a lot of people. The first day Senior year I felt like I was walking into my home. I felt comfortable and satisfied without any regrets and with lots of good memories. I felt a peaceful nostalgia."

faithful ' ' E lsy leaves a legacy at LMU through her efforts to address issues of alcohol and other drug abuse. She has organized the Cheers Bar to serve mocktails and be an infonn ation source to students, she chaired a student panel which co-ordinated several events for alcohol awareness week, she helped to create Cheers l 0 1, a "traffic school" type class for students who run afoul of LMU's student conduct code, and she co-created "Woman to Woman," a Fall event in which junior and senior women have heart-to-heart talk with female first year st udents. She will be tnissed by n1any at LMU. Who will rise to continue the efforts she has begun ?" - Debbie Wilson) Director, Student H ealth Services. 134

alance, Confucius said, is the key to inner peace. Add a deep sense of faith, discipline and a genuine love for serving others ro the formula and it would probably describe Dan Chavira. â&#x20AC;˘ Dan, who graduates wi th a degree in biology and theology, has balanced his academic life with a healthy dose of community involvement. Once a teaching assistant t(>r the biology department, Dan is also a counsdor for Camp Ronald McDonald tor Children with Cancer and involved in Camp Marywood, a camp for the mentally disabled. â&#x20AC;˘ The native Southern Californian has also learned to enjoy the simple pleasures in lite. An avid surfer and hiker, Dan's love of nature and li fe have strengthened his faith in God. His four years at LMU have meant four years of tremendous personal growth through ac6vities such as Campus Ministry and through leadership roles as an resident advisor and resident director of McKay Hall. â&#x20AC;˘ Dan, who plans on pursuing an M.D. and Ph.D ., will be spending a year in Australia as parr of the Rotary Ambassadorial scholarship. It seems his formula to success at LMU-balance, discipline, faith and service to others- will no doubt ensure a successful fl1ture . - Cla1'C Climaco

' ' T he interchange between environment and response, love and fear, strength and weakness is a blade of paradox that I am constantly learning to tread. While I do occasionally slip to one side or the other, I try to walk carefully and with confidence. My education, especially in the seemingly opposite fields of science and theology, has proved to me the ability to understand my experiences, articulate them and n1yself and act upon that which they have taught me."

a a nee ' ' D a n is not just a talented and hardworking acaden1ic. He has worked for social justice both in the co1nn1unity and downtown LA with organizations such as Hope for Youth and the Industrial Areas Foundation. He has shown con1rnitrnent to Christian faith and his cotnpassion for those tnarginalized and bypassed by our secular society." -Fr. He1~'hert J. Ryan) S.J. Professor of Theological Studies


'' Q projects ne of my most memorable philanthropy was Alpha Phi's "A-Phiasco" in November. It was an event that raised over $6,000 for the American Cancer Society and at the same time brought students, faculty and administrators together. This event gave me a true sense of what the community at LMU is all about."

iz Briggs proves that the stereotype many hold about sororities are not always accurate. • Liz, who served as president of Alpha Phi, has been a strong advocate tor the Greek system. • During her tenure, the sorority raised over $6,000 for the American Cancer Society at a silent auction for cancer research. • Liz also completed her senior thesis on how sorority women emerge as strong leaders as a result of the numerous activities that sororities such as Alpha Phi sponsor for both the school and surrounding community. • Liz, a native northern Californian, treasures many fond memories of her college years at LMU. Sacred Heart Chapel, a handmade cross from a village in El Salvador, and a photo album bulging with pictures and inspirational letters from her Alpha Phi sisters are all symbolic of things she holds dear: spirituality, true friendship, and a commitment to the Greek system. • After obtaining a communication studies degree, she plans to intern at CNN in Washington D.C. as a first step on her way to becoming an anchorwoman. -Michele Tengco

on't let her last name (or her looks) f(>Ol you. Mia Shanley, born in Taiwan but adopted by an Irish-American fam ily, considers herself as American as apple pie. • From a large Catholic fam ily with six siblings, Mia has never questioned the love and support her fami ly has given her, despite her appearance which set her apart from other family members. • And her strong fam ily foundation has been a springboard for her many successes. • Her resume reflects a litany of accomplishments ranging from vice president of Sursum Corda, recipient o f seven prestigious awards and scholarships including the Los Angeles Philanthropic Award, news editor of the Loyolan and various other print and broadcast internships such as the Santa Monica Outlook and MTV's The Real World. • Aware of how unique her own story is, Mia has chosen journalism as the means to convey the f.:1.scinating stories of others. • Mia brings o ut the best in her colleagues by encouraging other staff writers to cover stories and share her same passion for reporting. • With a degree in Communication Studies and a minor in English, Mia plans to pursue a career in jo urnalism. • Her unique upbringing, alo ng with the dedication and gt:nuine enthusiasm she has poured into every endeavor, will continue to be the formula for her future success . -Clare Clin·taco & Michele Teugco


' ' My first controversial news story appeared in the Loyolan when I was a junior. I remember sitting on the Lair Patio, listening to two people I didn't know argue. I suddenly realized they were reading my article-and having a major debate about the issues. It's amazing to spark that interest-to be a quiet, but powerful voice. Within my first weeks at the Santa Monica Outloolz) I interviewed Charlton Heston, crossed a crime scene to investigate a plane crash and had a personal talk with a H olocaust survivor whose name was on Schindler's List. Every day is different because every story is different. That's the best part about the job."

the deadline ' ' o ne o.fthe brightest contributions to the Loyolan staff has been the work of Mia Shanley. Con11nitted, accurate and fair, Mia has labored under tough deadlines to give her work as a newswriter and edito r a fair sense of balance and a clear, concise style. But \vhat really counts is Mia's heart. Her presence on the staff, her con1passion and dedication to her colleagues day after day are what n1ake her such a valuable person around here. Mia cares n1ore about people than the glory of the byline." - Michael Mason) Media Advisor


' ' M y father has been the biggest influence in my life. H e wasn't an educated man. He didn't even go to high school. However, he was one of the most intelligent people that I've ever known.

o say that Redeat Baylcyegn has overcome adversity is an understatement. Born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, in the same year that communists took power, Redcat still remembers the sounds of machine guns from street fights between Communists and their rivals. Vivid recollections of hunger, fam ine, political turmoil, and fear of a military dictatorship arc memories that Rcdeat will never forget. • Seven years ago, Redcat came to the U.S. to sec his mother, whom he hadn't seen for eight years. The u nbreakable bond he torgcd with his mother, seven brothers and one sister, and the loving memory of his fathe r who passed away on C hristmas Day, 1995, have motivated Redcat to pursue relentlessly a college degree, despite language barriers. • A semiprofessional soccer player, Rcdcat was a member o f the Dallol Ethiopian Soccer Club which won two L.A. Metropolita n competitions and placed second in thcl994 Ethiopian Soccer Tournament in North America. • Giving back to the community by volunteering for the American Red C ross, American Cancer Society, L.A. Marathon, and various projects for the Ethiopian community arc ways Redcat says he is "paying back America for the opportunities it has provided" him. • This year, Redcat served as coordinator of the Mcntorship Program in the Office of Black Student Services. • His determination and sheer desire to give back to the community have guided Redeat through some of lite's worst adversities and inspired him to meet all of li te's challenges with courage and success. -Clan Clirnaco

or Josephine DeFelice, her experience at LMU has meant more than just getting an education. The past four years have influenced and positively impacted her life. The first in her family to graduate from college, Josephine has made the most of her years at LMU. • As a resident advisor and resident director, she has made a difference in the lives of Desmond's 180 first-year women residents. • Through community service with Sursum Corda, Josephine found personal fu lfillment in tutoring children at Nickerson Gardens. • Studying abroad the summer before her senior year in Oxford, Josephine not only made her first trip abroad, but took her first airplane ride, marking her first time outside of California. England proved to be one of the most memorable experiences in her life. • But it is Josephine's strong faith and close relationship with her fam ily that has particularly influenced the person she has become. Her mother has been a source of unconditional love, sacrifice and support. -Cla1-e Climaco


'''lVXVJhen I was very young, my younger sister drowned in a swimming pool. This brought my farnily closer together, closer to God.

I try to take nothing for granted because you never know how long you'll have it."

Loyola Marymount University, formerly St. Vincent's College and Loyola University of Los Angeles, has constantly sought to open its doors to provide a Jesuit education to people subject to discrimination at other colleges and universities nationwide. This legacy lives on with LMU's many cultural groups on campus. These groups teach customs and traditions to students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn about the richness of LMU's collective history. The Cinco de Mayo celebration, pictured in 1960 on Regent's Terrace, is an annual celebration still held at LMU so that students may learn more about themselves and others.

Founded in 1929 to ensure that proper discipline was observed by Loyola students at assemblies and athletic events, Crimson Circle is the oldest service organization at LMU. At right, Crimsons pose with some of the fifty children fi路om the House of Nazareth invited to a picnic in the Spring of 1962. In addition to the all-male Crimson Circle, the allfemale Belles and Gryphon Circle and the co-ed Ignatians and Sursum Corda serve the community by working at on-campus events and at communitybased volunteering to serve homeless, the elderly, AIDS patients, juvenile criminal offenders, children and the mentally and physically challenged. T hough aU five organizations require students to go through an application and interview process and commit to a minimum number of service hours per semester, Sursum Corda's Volunteer Corps allows any student to volunteer in the community when they arc able.

he LM U Belles continue to strive to be "Forever Joined in Service and Friendship," as the 1996-97 Belles Getaway theme states, by adopting another community service project. The St. Joseph's Center, located in Santa Monica, n:mains a traditional part of our otl"-campus service , providing us with a variety of opportunities to be of assistance to the people of the n e:~ rby LMU communities. The LMU Belles work with the St. Joseph's Center in providing services to the homeless through the Bread :~nd Roses Cafi.:, but this year's new addition of the ChildCare Program has enabled us to help economically disad\·:lntaged famil ies as well. The LMU Belles dedicate the ir Wednesday :~fternoons to caring f(>r the children of parents participating in Jo b Placement or Parenting Workshops, which arc o.:onducted at St. Joseph's Center. While parents attend these training sessions, the Belles arc kept busy supervising and playing with t he children, who range from one to five years of age. The St. Joseph's Child -Care Progr:~m h:1s been quite a success, f(x both groups bencllr the ch:~nce to inter:~ct on a weekly basis. These types of experiences gained ti·om our involvement with the surrou nding community otlcr the LM U Belles many valuable rewards and serve in bring ing us closer togethe r as an organization. ~or the past three years, Belles have been a source t(lr most of my energy here at LMU , as well as tn)' true connection to the U niversity. Although this is my last (~ff"icifr! year in Belles, I am aware rhat the opportunities f(>r service and ti·ienclship Belles has provided me with arc not limited to Loyola Marymount.

rimson Circle was established in 1929 in order to ensure that there would be pro per discipline amo n g the students at Student Body Assemblies and athletic events in which Lions participated. Appointed by the Student Council, they administered public punishment to those students found guilty of any infi路actions of the laws and traditions of the University. The o rganization was composed of fifteen men from the sophomore, junior, and senior classes. For the past 67 years C rimson C ircle has been reorganized many times. By the forties, they played a major part in organ izing campus events as well as being considered an honors society. In the sixties, Crim son C ircle began to resemble the organization it is today. It was then that Crimson C ircle became a service o rganization , committed to the U niversit)' to pro mote programs for th e Associated Students o f Loyola University, th e President's O ffice, University Relations and Admissions. Today, service in the LMU community and the surrounding communities has become the primary focus of C rimson Circle, enriching the people it touches, while giving the men of LMU the opportunity to embody the Ignati:m and Marymount ideals of living for others. The opportunities arc as great as the b enefits. The members o f Crimson Circle experience li fe fi路om a different perspective after assisti ng Meals o n Wh eels volunteers. They understand tolerance after spending a Sunday m orning visiting Juvenile Hall with children who have participated in acts of murder and brutality. T hey d iscover joy when th e students at Loyola Village Elementary Schooll1nally understand long division after hours of patience and encouragement. They experience understanding and friendship when assisting Univcrsit)' programs. All of these clements of life come from a person's involvement with the community in the name of service.

RrEM~ OF LOVE pit路it of Love (SOL) is a coalition effort with St. Gerard Majella Youth Ministry. In the f;lll of 1992, a group of MEChA members began to counsel "at risk, }'Outh in the community. The group, however, had bigger plans and chose to create its own organization. At the same time the group came in contact with the youth ministry group at St. Gerard Majella in Culver City. From that point on, the coalition has taken on a life of its own to what it is now. No nlatter what the occasion happens to be, our main focus is to provide positive role models for teens. SOL stresses the importance of education in their development as young adults. Many have said that SOL is a home away from home. But no matter what the situation is, we arc there to be older brothers and sisters to teenagers going through difficult tirncs. When they arc caught up in their problems and cannot sec the end of the tunnel, we arc there to brighten that light and guide them . Essentially, SOL members serve as mentors for youth in the community. Our organization hopes to guide }'Outh in society to provide them with positive attitudes and a confident outlook on life. SOL meets with the teens regularly to give counseling and incentives that they will bendlr from. It attempts to create a positive environment where they can feel free to approach us with any difficulties they may encounter. SOL has enlivened our spirits and provided us with a healthy outlook on life. We hope to continue the organization and make a difference t(>r the better.

dedication to ser\'ing others, a devotion to friendships and a love t<>r fi.m . These arc characteristics which wot~ ld accurately fit any member of Grypho n C ircle. In fact, the ideals of 1-i·iendshi p, Jove :m el service an.: t he uniti ng t(m.:es which hdp to ho ld tbcsc t hirty t"l\'\:. women together ~md provide a basis f(>r t he spirit of givi ng which pervades the group . T he strength of t he organization, howe\'er, lies not only in its unity, bur also in its diversity. For as each member gives of herself to others, she shares her own unique gifts. Those she sen•es, as well a:. or her members of the group, arc touched by her speci:1l abilities. The org:lllization as a whole thus provcdes a channel th roug h which these wome n can touch othe rs. And in the process, lasting ti-iendships arc made. VVorking oursidc of the cam pus commu ni ty has become a priority for the members of this group, especially in the last tcw years. Whether it be playing with the c hildren at the Richsrone Family Center, having a "beauty day" tor the women at a convalescent home, or helping ro pl:tnr trees in nearby Venke, t he G rypho n wonu:n try to fi ll t he need f·i:>r caring hearts

As the smallest sen•ice organization on campus, these women enjoy the close-knit community which is created within G rypho n C ircle. However, we also enjoy being able to reach o ut and share our g ifts wit h o thers. T his year we will be twenty eight years o ld. As we have g iven ro o t hers in the past , we ha\'c learned that the gi lts we receive fi·om others arc just as mtmerous.

he LM U l gnatians were founded sixteen years ago to till the void of a co -ed service o rganization at LM U. Since the organization's conception, men and women trom diverse backgrounds have joined hands in striving to carry out the Ignatian vision of becoming "men and women tor others" through the ageold Jesuit philosophy of service learning. lgnatians take part in serving the members of the LM U community and those in need in the g reater Los Angeles area. Whether it be counseling troubled youth in juvenile h:-~11, or ushering at LM U's weekly masses, members arc able to be the one person who makes a diHcrcncc. When thinking about the need and importance of scrvkc, one event comes to mind . for the past tive years, the I gnat ian s h;we adopted six needy f~milics t(>r the C hristmas season. We collected f路(>od and raised money to buy gifts tor these familie s. However, this year was no ordinary year. Through the hard work of our members and the generosity of the LM U community and the surrounding community, we were able to raise over $ 1,200 worth of t()od and money tc>r the families. Ignatians solicited customers of Ralph's grocery stores and collected over seven shopping carts tltll of non-perishable items. In addition, one generous lady bought a shopping cart fu ll of items tor our cause, while remaining anonymous and leaving it at Ralph 's lor us. Our members worked tirelessly to make this project a success without any recognition, whatsoever. Many of t hese families have never celebrated Christmas before in this fashion, and maybe this outpo uring of generosity was enough to get them back on their feet. The tamilies never knew who furnished them with all of their C hristmas gifts because the program is anonymous. But somewhere on campus walks a humble student in a gray sweater with an " I" patch helping someone out, but not seeking reward. This is an Ign:nian. Will Skinner President

Now in modern times, where the Batmobilc is "out," and 2-2-2 and the mcdc:ll't is "in," the LM U Emergency Mcdic:~l Technicians have continued to provide this itw:~luahlc service to the LM U community. The LMU EMTs work. nightly ti路om 5pm to 8am, providing medical assistance to the LM U campus. On :we rage, each individual member works about 223 ho urs per semester, responding to a variety of calls, ranging ti路om papercuts to heart attacks, This unique new organization has grown significantly in the past year by adding 29 enthusiastic members who arc more than qualified to carry out their duties as EMTs at LM U. Even more impressive that the hours devoted to serving the LM U community, is the tim<.: and money each member has invested in becoming a state certified EMT. Every EMT must wmplcte over 100 hours of training, pass a state ccrtili<:ation exam, and pass both an objective and praaical exam specific to this universitv. These EMTs rould have accepted any paid :unbuhmcc or hospital position , hut have chosen two volunteer thei r expert services f(>r their school. So the next time you arc at Special Games, Sunset Cotl\:crr o r even C harter Ball, you cul be assured that you arc under the protective care of the men and women in blue: one of the finest teams that LM U has ever otlcred.

eginning with the kind interaction between strangers and the hearts and dedi cation of a few. Sursurn Corda has g rown into the largest service o rganization at LMU. Throughout the past five years Sursum Corda has striven to provide service opportunities for all students who wish to be of service to others. Emphasiz ing service in the Los Angeles community, members o f Sursum Corda have had e ndless opportunities to share the ir talents and learn from the diverse people of this c ity . It is these experiences of helping others, of learning about oneself, and of challeng ing beliefs that bring this organization together. The unique opportunities members of Sursurn Corda experience together create lasting friendships. Through the variety of organizations with whom Sursurn Corda volunteers. me mbers have been able to carry on a tradition of service. Sursum Corda provides its members opportunities to work with people of all backgrounds and to learn about themselves and others. Members have found that it is the individuals with whom they work that give the most. It is the kind thank you from a lady in Santa Monica receiving a simple bag of food , and the eagerness of a young man in juvenile ha ll to exchange stories. struggles, and belie fs that is given to them . It is a good friend at the convalescent home and the courage of an A IDS patient that brings the members of Sursurn Corda together. This year, members focused on their wondrous and the challenging experiences. They reflected on the Chutes and Ladders that arc so inherent and essential in service and in life. Through service, the women and men of Sursum Corda strive to be a ladder for others. And it is through service that these wome n and men realize that w hen c hallenged by a chute that is necessary to lift up our hearts to others.

College is as much about community as it is about scholastic endeavors. From the first orientation activities to the final walk through Sunken Gardens on graduation day, college is a social experience. The LMU community is what creates the setting that new students are drawn to during Open House and old ones return to for alumni reunions. It is the soul of the campus, the glue that holds students together when the stress of tests and papers threatens students with a seemingly insurmountable wall of work. Students form lifelong bonds between each other. Individuals who started off as strangers go on to become best friends . From the traditional involuntary swim in Foley Pond to dancing the night a\vay under the stars, LMU is about enjoying life in the best of possible places.

lOllS Though it is a distant memory now, football fans filled the grandstands at Loyola University of Los Angeles 1911 to 1951. Challenging NCAA universities such as UCLA, USC, University of Arizona and Michigan State, the Lions were a force to be reckoned with in collegiate football. Today, though its football team has gone the v.ray of the Pacific Electric Red Car, LMU's sports legacy continues with its championship basketball and volleyball being among the most exciting athletics programs at LMU. Students gather socially at Gersten Pavillion to show their Lion Pride while their friends on the court serve up a cold dish of disappointment to the opposition.

Trisha Jibe Senior

"Determination and Heart Are All That Matter"

Being plagued by injury is a fc'lte met by many athletes; however, Trisha Abe has had the determination to overcome numerous injuries and remain an active member of the women's soccer team. From those injuries, Trisha has been able to celebrate the successes of competition and learn from its sometimes brutal defeats. When asked for the one "stand-out" moment in her LMU soccer career, Trisha remembers her Sophomore year. The victory win over Santa Clara in which the Lions' were considered the underdogs, was a prime example of what "teamwork" means. The team came together as a family and it was then that Trisha knew she had found her place and had been part of something truly exciting. Trish suffered from a fracture to the left ankle and a sprain to the right one in the middle of her Junior year. Mter surgery and months of therapy, she came back in her fourth year to be a part of a dynamic team and create a dominant force on the field. As a result of her hard work, Trisha was named to the WCC Second Team.

Jim Williamson is about as much a chip off the old block as one could be. Born on April 6, 1975, to Duane and Janie Williamson, both Jim's parents arc Loyola Marymount alumni, as well. Jim's father also played basketball for the Lions'. Duane Williamson was a first team All-West Coast Conference selection in his senior year. History again repeated itself, for Jim was selected for First Team All-West Coast Conference. But not to be outdone by his old man, Jim was also selected in his Junior year. Kudos and accolades are nothing new to the career ofLMU's point guard and courtgeneral. In December of 1995, Jim became the only player in South Torrance High School history to have his jersey retired. College proved to be no different for the talented Williamson. In his Freshman year, Jim was named the West Coast Conference Freshman of the Year. Along with his first team selection, Jim was also named West Coast Conference Player of the Week twice during his Junior year. Widely considered one of the top playmakers on the West Coast, Jim leads his Lion team with the spirit and drive of a great team captain. As his coaches and teammates will attest to, Jim Williamson has a "heart and inner strength that defy his small stature." It is Jim's love tor the game, his affinity for the sound of a ball pounding on a hardwood floor, his willingness to run extra sprints in the dead of summer, that define him as an athlete. It is his work ethic that makes it seem so effortless when his shots sail through the net at the final buzzer: the accolades he accrues are the result of hours and hours of practice. Like his father before him, Jim Williamson exemplifies the LMU athlete.

"Run Long, Run Fast"

Being one of the youngest and strongest on the men's cross country team, Rick Wcis realizes that he still has a lot to accomplish. But tear not, for it was his hard work and dedication that enabled this 5'4" runner to overcome heart problems and become MVP both in his Junior and Senior years in high school. Rick's teammates know that his talents will help to push him even further. By driving himself day in and day out, Rick has begun to prove his Lion Pride. At this year's West Coast Conference C hampionship, Rick was awarded Honorable Mention , for his outstanding performance. Rick graduates in the year 2000. With his diploma in hand he plans to represent the United States at the Olympic Games. But, as for now, R.ick continues to prove that the only way to tackle a cross cou ntry course is to "Run Long, Run Fast!" -Kntc Di]{nunn

Kim Blanlcin!!tip "Think you can or you can't, either way you'll be right!" A volleyball player who became involved in the sport by following her sister's footsteps, Kim Blankinship has far exceeded anyone's expectations, including her own. After eight years of playing, she still finds the greatest joy in being a member of the team. And especially a member of a winning team. This year was no exception. As team captain, she helped motivate her team to reach the highest standings ever acheived by an LMU team. Winning the wee and being ranked sixth in the nation have

been the great rewards ofyears ofhard work and dedication. Even after all of her years on the court, d1e LMU women's volleyball team captain still anticipates learning something new at every practice. Through the rough workouts and vigorous training, Kim has been able to reach the greatest heights, from being a member of the league's All Freshman team, to being named Defensive Player of the Year. -Rrian Dm,is

Joseph Kenntt!IY "Crew has given me a lot of discipline." As the Spring time sun reflected off his dark sunglasses, Joseph Kennedy took a few minutes out of his hectic schedule to talk about Loyola Marymount University's crew program. His voice carried with it an excited pitch that rushed forward with a hopeful enthusiasm about his career at LMU, as well as his hopes for the future of the program. Joseph, a four-year member tor the men's crew team, attended Loyola High School where he participated in track and cross-country. Initially attracted to crew by his sister, who rowed in college, and sparked by the team aspect of the sport, Joseph jumped head tlrst into crew. Joseph began with little knowledge of how to row, but quickly realized how demanding the sport was. "Crew has given me a lot of discipline," said Kennedy. "I had to get up at 5:30 in the morning and be there on time, because you have other guys relying on you." Joseph admits tJ1at junior year was a rocky season tor him. It was at a time when a number of members quit at the end of the year, during a crucial period in the team's schedule. However, Joseph feels that this year's squad has come together as a team and represents a period of development within the program. Originally a member of an eight-man boat, Joseph raced this year in a four-man boat. He feels the four-man is slowly becoming stronger within a sport that boasts some very competitive teams. "I'd like to tell the team to just keep it up, it might be difficult with the problems we have, but they just have to push through and they will be rewarded, like I have been." If Kennedy takes hold of the future like he has the past, there is no doubt he will be successful at whatever he does. -

Irene Map!~ "It's an indescribable feeling"

Waking up at 5:00a.m. every day to pr:-tctice rowing in the crisp, biting wind of Marina del Re>' is proof of one's wholehearted dedication. Irene Mapua, an international student from Manila, Philippines, commutes ll路om Manhattan Beach each morning to help hone her crew team 's skills in a sport that she truly enjoys. Mapua, a business administration major, started crew in her sophomore year in search of a unique outlet for her athleticism. Although she loves sports in general and has tried everything ti路om snowboarding to equestrian events, she appreciates the beauty of the synchronism and exertion of strength found in crew. "You have to balance the boat right," Mapua says. "Once everyone is in synch, it's an indescribable feeling. You just hear one sound throughout." \Vhilc the women's crew team rows at "open weight", or the heavier weight category, Mapua isn' t discouraged by her smaller size, but rather, she strives to work twice as hard as most crew members. She has rowed on both the portside (right) and starboard (left) positions on the team's boat. A typ i c:~ ! morning practice session indudes stretching, a short run, c:-trrying the boars to the dock, and

working out on the water f(.>r two hours. Afternoon \\'Orkouts find Mapua either weight tmining or on the water yet again. "You have to love the spon and have the dedication," Mapua says. Aside ti路mn being assist :-tnt head coach of crew and Loyola Rowing Associ;Hion bursar, Mapua volunteers extensively in the community. She has served as 6culty rel:ltions ofllcer of Delta Sigma Pi, Sursum Corda member, advisor f()l' the International Persistence Program, vice president of the International Students Organization, and as a Special Games team leader. "I just try to do as much as I can," Mapua says of her well rounded extracurricular commitments. "You can do it as long as you plan ." Mapua looks forward to continuing both crew and service in her future after graduating. She will return to LMU next fall to work tor her MBA. Mapua has yet to decide whether to plan her fitturc working in the US or in the Philippines. "I would like to have a career that would :~llow me to enjO}' both worlds," she says.

Malinalli Martinez "Run hard!"

First Year Student

These are the words that inspire women's cross country rum1er Malinalli Martinez. After suffering a car accident in her freshman year of high school, Malinalli made a phenomenal comeback to help her team win the C.I.F. championships. A stand-out runner, Malinalli has joined the ranks ofLMU's greatest cross country athletes. By winning Honorable Mention at the West Coast Conference Championship, Malinalli has shown that she is a terror on the track. With a top time of 18:33 for aSk run , Malinalli continues to prove that her star is rapidly rising. Supported by her teammates, Malinalli feels comfortable bringing home glory for herself, as well asLMU. As for the next three years of her college competition, Malinalli wants to continue to push herself, and maybe even bring home an NCAA title. -Kate DiRannn

One could describe Jorge Rodriguez, who came to the United States from El Salvador in 1989, as a stranger in a strange land looking for acceptance and an outlet for expression. Though he had played soccer in his home land, it was in the United States that soccer helped open doors to his future. Attracted by the intimate community of a small university, Rodriguez applied to LMU. But it was the men's soccer team that solidified his final decision. When asked for a soccer moment that will live forever in his mind, Rodriguez tells anyone who will listen about a match with St. Mary's. It was a bear of a game that had come down to the final minutes when Rodriguez, then a sophomore, scored to give the Lions the win. Rodriguez, a two time member of the All Conference Team, is held in high esteem by his team members and coaches who have often described him as "the spirit that leads the team., He credits his tenacity to the inspiration of his father, who has always insisted tl1at he do his best at whatever he attempted. What does the future hold for this Lion? Rodriguez has not yet committed to anything in particular, but he knows he will be playing soccer long after his days at LMU are over.

"Be the best, always."

Ryan Eisb,rg "G. II /1 h 路 After watching the summer Olympics in elementary school, Ryan Eisberg thought that water polo might be something he would enjoy, Little did he know that it would become such a great part of his life. After receiving accolades such as All League and All Conference in high school, Ryan ventured to the home of tl1e Lions, LMU. As he continued to hone his skills, Ryan was voted Second Team All Conference by the Western Water Polo Association, then an AllAmerican during his past three years at college. Ryan has also been named LMU's leading scorer several times. He describes water polo at LMU as the "David and Goliath" of atl1letics. But Ryan doesn't settle for second best. He pushes his team to play to the best of their abilities. And Ryan certainly isn't happy unless he can look his teammates in the eye and honestly tell them he gave it his all. Ryan considers himself very fortunate to be part of a team tl1at he calls "the most talented team he has ever played with." Ryan is also confident that he will play a big part in helping the team to reach their goal of making it into tl1e NCAA championships before he graduates. In the future, Ryan hopes that his ability and talent will be his ticket to play water polo professionally in Australia. - Katy DiRanna

Anna Zaricki "Always believe in yourself." With her balance between academics and athletics, Anna Zaricki is a true picture of a student athlete. Anna is double-majoring in economics and business administration with an emphasis in tlnance. Since transferring to LMU her sophomore year from the University of Hawaii, Anna has been an asset to the tennis team. "She is a .very aggressive player, with her strong stroke being her forehand. Overall, she plays a very aggressive game of doubles," Tennis Coach Jamie Sanchez said. In her tennis career at LMU, Anna holds the tenth highest winning percentage for singles matches and the sixth highest winning percentage individually in doubles matches in LMU history. With doubles partner, Mara Colaizzi, Anna holds the third best record for wins in doubles matches and the ninth best winning percentage for a doubles team in LMU history. In 1996, Anna and Mara were ranked as the 33rd best doubles team in the nation. She was also recognized as an Academic All-American in the NCAA, an athletic and academic award. <<Jt is much more individual, even though you are on a team," Anna said. <'There are the team aspects, but I enjoy the individual part more because I don't have to depend on someone else. I enjoy the challenges and struggles that I have been able to overcome. I've learned a lot about myself because it is so concentrated." Her GPA has ranked her in the top 5 percent of her class in the College of Business Administration and membership to Beta Gamma Sigma, the honor society for business majors. Anna is also a member of the Finance Club. "I have learned to always believe and have conf}dence in myself," said Anna. Anna has been applying to law and graduate schools and is also considering the possibility of earning a joint MBA and law degree. Although her competitive tennis career will terminate at the end of this season, she plans to continue playing in open tournaments tor enjoyment. -Megau Cl路路owley

â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;˘ The Del Rey Players, one of the oldest campus organizations, has had a somewhat nomadic life at LMU. In the early years of the acting troupe, young men frotn Loyola University performed plays like Everyman in Sacred Heart Chapel. Before the creation of the Department ofTheater Arts, the Del Rey Players occupied the Strub Theater in Foley. The Del Rey Player's current space, the Wine Cellar, was built by students for the 1972 season. The theater was named for its creative seats, which were formed out of wine barrels. The Del Rey Players have occupied the space ever since, producing an independent season of theater for the LMU community every year.

My experience at Loyola Marymount has been the turning poi nt in my life I would like to take this opportunity to thank the s tudents who I have had the pleasure of wo rking wit h and the students who I may know o nl y by a smile. You have all played a deep a nd meaningful part in my life .. : 111ank Ynu.

t\nd to the following Professors: Dr. C h ris Curry, who l'nlightencd me to the true nwa ning of the word VIRTUE. Wisdom produces happiness. Wisdom is,, pan of Virtue as a whole, and makes a person happy by his or he r possession and exercise of it.

Dr. Michael P. I loran, w ho gave me a greater underswnding about a rea li ty imbued by the hidde n presence of Cod. The l{e ign o f Cod is here and now. Dr. Ka la Chand Seal, inspired m e with the cuuing edgl' of computer technology. Dr. Richard Perle. gave me wisdom in tlw .trea of detail, analysis and impleme ntation. A good man to say the least. Dr. Jost'ph E. Earley. who gave nll' confidt•nce in my fellow man a nd s howl·d me how to skew an equation.

Dr. Ja mes Devine, who e ncouraged my knowh:dge of li.S . .md world ban king. Dr. Benjam in F. Bobo, ,, m,m who dernonstr<ltes wha t being a Profe ssor at l.oyol.' Ma1ymount is all about. A m an of ch;uacte r and style. D r. Chris Manol is, brightt'ned my ho ri zons


gave me perspective in the world of marketing in relation to husint·ss ,,sa w holt'.

Dr. Dilvid M. Boje. gave me insight to human kindness .md compass ion. I will never fo rgl't his tears. Dr. Ewusi-Mcns ah, from pain conH'l> beauty. D r. C harles J. !Iiggins, w ha t didn't he cover? A vny thorough Pro fessor! I le gaw nw insight to the complex wnrld of lnwstments. " A good deal never seeks you out!" "Forget the s tory, just give me the figures" and "b rokers only make you broker." A brilliant Professor with a wit as sharp as a razor. Dr. Judi th White, w ho gaw me insight in "hunMn resources." I have ap plied m.1ny o f the conce pts and "assumptio ns" she gave me. Dr. William Martello , a man of true ethic1l consdousncss. Dr. Martello brought the spirit of success and achievement to Loyola Marymount. I a m fo rtuna te to have h iltlthe o pportunity to shart· in his knowledge and wisdom. Dr. Armand o Paz, a true Loyola ma n. Brilliant to say the least. Dr. Paz gave me inspiratio n a nd a better perspectiv<.· regarding courage. whether he kn ew it or nol. Professor Stacy Brightman, who taught me quality in life has bel'n evident th roug hout time. That Crcl·k Tragt•dies <lre blessings. Also I would also like 10 tha nk Matt Fissinger a nd Dale Mari ni for having fai th in mt·. A s pecia l tha nks 10 C harles E. llinds, John Murphy ,md Edd a Brown And finally, I wish to thank my wife Kath e rine .md her mother, the late I rn a Phillips-Queen o f the Soaps, for tht• love and support through the many years w hich ul timately led me to Loyola Marymou111 University. There are several ave nues to success. Two of which I would like to share with you: ' l11ere is a will to conquer, the im p ulse to fight, to prove oneself superior to o thers, to succeed for the sake, not of the fruits o f success, hut o f success itsd f. Finally there is the joy of creating, of gelling things dont'. or s imply exercising o ne's energy .md ingenuity. Bre t W. ll ughcs

he older that I get the more I realize how much I need you. I love and cherish the bond that we share; a loving friendship that encompasses the trust and respect of a n1otherdaughter relationship while n1ixing in the laughter and tears of best friends. Through your example I have learned how to become son1ething that I never thought I could be, set goals, achieve them and love myself. You have shown me what it n1eans to be a young w01nan and taught me that I am special. These gifts I could never repay You have pushed n1e to set my goals higher than I thought I could achieve and then supported and cheered me on until I accomplished everything I set out to do. The person that you are has encourage me to be the person that I am, and si1nply knowing you is the biggest blessing that I have ever known. Mama, you are 1ny best friend. Always, Eva

agentes in rebus if anyone ever asks you to edit a yearbook, say no. but if you 'rc reading this, our improbable odyssey must have come somehow to an end and the morbidly obese albatross that has hung f(:>r months around our necks borne us into heaven upon its gossamer wings. if you're not reading d1is, well, nevermind. it's really too bad everyone couldn't have been here with us- arguing about fonts, sleeping on the floor (thanks for the couch, student affairs!), eating either frozen or f.:1st food, racing to the 24hour post office on century blvd. before midnight, and watching the sun rise-and collecting a modest financial compensa6on at the same time. we actually wish that you could have been here with us, we could have used the help. what this book represents is rnore than a year at Ioyola marymount university. it is evidence that three off -baJance, a little nutty, irresonsible, procrastinators, slacker, non-linear tl1inkers can actually accomplish something usually assigned to people much more together than us. we would like to thank our entire staff, especially those who actually flnished their sections. there is a lot to be said for manipula6ng your friends, so thanks to all of our friends who came to our rescue, after being conned with promises of fame and fortune. we never could have finished this book without the help of the Loyolan, a team that provided an endless source of copy, talented writers and comedy. scott would personally like to thank Blackstreet for "No Diggity," they taught him how to bag it up, which amounted to the successful completetion of the book.
