To the Members of the

Graduating Class,

As you leave the gray granite and the green lawns of Kingston, you enter a world of this of stunning complexity. Never in human history have we seen change in forward geometrical progressions. As magnitude change moving relentlessly effort to any and every without us takes a people we live in a virtual world that there on impacts our lives in ways we spot on this small planet, and what goes of meaning and purpose have struggle to understand. The ancient questions this to changed reality you leave the University new import and new context. And of Rhode Island, ready to lead. I believe with all my heart that you are prepared to do just that: to lead a free mentors on the people toward a better future, the most noble of missions. Your be will work your the throughout to how doing have learn, you taught you faculty life. What creates value today is the creative response to constantly changing to challenges, and to make those responses requires the commitment and skill learn every day. You have learned here at URI to think like an artist, a scientist, a a humanist, a psychologist and a sociologist, to examine what is thought to be Your settled fact with a critical eye and to challenge what is only comfortable. professional skills have been honed by working side by side with professors whose own learning still leaves me simply astonished. With your families, your fnends and the faculty and staff of this University, you have also sharpened the set of ethical standards to which you will hold yourself and others accountable. You know much more about what you stand for and what you will not stand for. These are the roots that keep you grounded in the world of change, that enable you to fly straight and true.

greatest hope that the road ahead of you will be filled with meaningful challenge and with joy, that the days ahead will be as rich and happy as has been your time at the University of Rhode Island. This will always be your university, and I trust you will come back to see us often, to stroll among the It is my

simply a faculty, students and buildings any more than arms, legs and a are numerous other There things of more or less importance, but all necessarv for body ve are the real college. The first is without doubt, college spirit; th' happy to say is not lacking here, though there is plenty of room for more. However, the subject which we wish to discuss is that which moves cvciy graduate ofthe old institutions, as he hears of the deeds at his .Mma Mater traditions. It is the traditions which do most to keep alive the interest and love ofthe graduate. To read ofthe exploits ofthe classes or, still better, to go back to the old college and find the student doing the same that he did when there, makes the alumnus feel that he has not yet passed out of the ken of men. Here at Rhode Island our traditions are lew, very few, but then we are young and in this fact we who are here now mav find our opportunity. It is our dut\- and privilege to furnish traditions for those who follow. We have heard it said that it is fine to have a histor\ to live up to, but is it not a bit finer to be of those who make the history .' We have all read the history of our country and we feel proud of the deeds ofthe great men which constitute it, but if we could have been of the band of doers, how much prouder should we feel. Let us who are here now, in the early days of our college, get busy, make the most of our opportunity, fill the vacancy, furnish the history and traditions for posterit^. The history and traditions should be, as far as possible, But we must not let the fact that some other college has ours, separate and distinct from those of other colleges. the same, deter us from a tradition, providing always, that it is a laudable one. If it is good, it will bcarduplicaCOLLEGE

This year, for the first time, I RI has a house in which commuters and other people connected with the University can spend the night on campus. This house, located on Rt 138 by the tennis courts is called the URI Hostel. As the only hostel in the state of Rhode Island, the house fits eighteen people a night and the occupancy averages about twenty people a week, proving the need of such a service at URI. The Hostel eliminates the inconvenience of commuting home at night after a party or late-night studying in the library. This house makes social events on campus much more which might open to commuters, which in turn helps to break down any sort of alienation exist between commuters and residents. The Hostel is also used by friends of residents who wish to stay overnight at URI. During the winter semester break, the house was used by the basketball team for a meeting. The rates are fifty cents a night with a sleeping bag and seventy -five cents a night bed. This money goes to maintenance of the Hostel such as repairs, electricity, and heat .Maurice and Sue Tougas are the live-in couple at the Hostel at the University of Rhode

GOING, Going, Gone may well be rememliered as the twice. vear "the bubble burst" The eight-year-old Bubble covering the track in the Keaney Complex collapsed the first weekend of the Spring semester because of accumulated snow and ice on the Bubble's "skin" which caused it to tear. Temporary repairs totalling about $30,000 got under way soon afterward, and the Bub ble, which was to have had a life expectancy of only eight years, slowly began to reinflate. When fully inflated, work began inside the bubble to repair the cedar track which officials said tends to warp if it gets wet. Before the work was completed and the Bubble reopened, however, it collapsed a se cond time, also due to inclement weather. This time, officials were uncertain about the future of the structure and said it was doubtful the Bubble would be open before summer

Let It Snow, Let Us Go Talien From: The Good 5i

February 9,

Cigar

1994

By: Phil Perna Although yesterday's snowstorm may have been inconvenient for most people at

URI, students should feel lucky because classes were cancelled for the first time in about nine years, according to Tom Devine, director of Fadiities and

Operations. President Robert L. Carothers cancelled all classes held after 3:30 yesterday on all four campuses.

According

to the

university's

policy on snow storms, the decision to cancel will not be made "until there is clear evidence of danger or undue hardship to employees." The decision must be made

by the president or assistant vice president for personnel acting Ifor the president. Also, according to the policy, even if classes are cancelled, employees are expected to report to work. Better luck next time- if the

president closes the university, employees are not even required come to work and classes are cancelled. "Essential" employees, however, will be called in as required, according to the policy.

"^A For

students the idea of living away at school is very exciting; for some the very thought causes them to break out in hives.

whom you

of

your high school life, is the person who is missed most. No longer does she do your cooking, cleaning, laun dry, and shopping. If you run low on toothpaste you will actually have to go get it yourself, and yes, pay with your own money. While some students may feel it appropriate to wear the same dirty clothes day after day, at

drag your laundry bag down a few flights of stairs and do that yourself also. The refrigerator and stove are no longer right around the corner. Now, you will have to go to a dining hall and have your food prepared for you by people with latex gloves and hair-nets. Definitely do not expect it to be gourmet dining like you may have had at home. You will have to stand in line for cold, hard chicken nuggets and something that may resemble macaroni and cheese. While you still won't have to do the cooking or the dishes yourself, you will have to bring yourself to the dining hall, despite the weather and despite whatever condition you, yourself, are in. The dining hall women do not bring you chicken soup when you have the flu or make you your favorite meal on your birthday. some
