Earning up to six academic credit hours toward graduation, those w h o travelled also completed class assignments for Old and N e w Testament studies.

The more things change, the more things stay the same. The fashions. The cars. The campus. So many things from Liberty Baptist College are quite different from what can be found at Liberty University today. In this 25th anniversary year, it's easy to see the things that have changed and it's just as easy to see the things that remain the same. Liberty University was, is and always will be committed to building cham-



pions for Christ. In 1971 Dr. Falwell founded Liberty Baptist College and announced plans to build a university. His vision was to build a single educational institution in which young people could receive a quality education from preschool through the graduate level and dedicate their lives to serving Jesus Christ. People laughed when the school opened that September with 141 students, three faculty m e m bers, and no dormitories or classrooms. People are no longer laughing as the student body reaches nearly 5,000. The first students lived in homes while classes

were held in a church and in rented elementary schools around the city. Today modern dorms and academic buildings bring students together in an environment for learning. Academic excellence and a commitment to service continue to be what makes an education at Liberty different. The vision from 1971 is perpetuated each year as young Champions for Christ graduate from Liberty and leave the university to make a difference for Christ. Even in the '70s, Check-in was a challenge (far right).

Freshmen come to Liberty with anxiety about a n e w year, as seniors leave with anxiety about a n e w life.

Freshmen spend their evenings having fun. They run around inside Marriott, acting m u c h like Though stressed with resume revisions, graduation checklists, cap and gown costs, early exams, and confused career paths, seniors still anticipate their freedom.

school children at recess. They spend the next several hours pulling pranks on their friends or talking on the phone to their friends at home. Seniors spend their evenings preparing for the future. They spend hours in the library researching a topic for a 400-level class only to find out that someone else has checked out the materials they need. And, of course, the lines at the ProQuest machines are a mile long because there are hundreds of freshmen w h o are stressing out over a G N E D project that is due the following day. Seniors then return to

their dorms or apartments, after walking a mile from where they had to park, to type out a 10page research paper. Halfway through the paper they realize that they have a major exam the next day in their 8 a.m. classes. A few hours before sunrise, everyone hops into their beds, praying that they won't sleep through their alarm again. "Being a freshman is great because you can act obnoxious and nobody really cares. It's kind of expected of you," freshm a n Keith Johnson said. "We're having fun n o w because w e have years of studying ahead of us."

T o most people, the sounds of a ringing telephone, a honking horn and a friend's voice are quite familiar. Occurring everyday, they are often taken for granted. Yet, some L U students have never had this experience and never will. The first deaf student entered LBI in 1974 and the following year, Liberty Baptist College enrolled its first deaf student. Students gained biblical background through a two-year program at LBI

and transferred to the college. Deaf students have had to overcome obstacles in this predominantly "hearing world." Particularly at L U they faced c o m m u nication barriers with the fact that they cannot hear. However, hearing students have helped by eliminating misconceptions that concern the deaf. Mrs. Sue Willmington, director for the Hands of Liberty, said, "It used to be w h e n people thought of the deaf, they thought they were mentally ill or they couldn't drive, which are not true."

She attributed the change in attitude to mainstreaming in schools giving students exposure to the deaf. According to Willmington, the ministry has enabled her to "give the Gospel to the deaf w h o w o u l d not accidently overhear it." Willmington interpreted for the Old Time Gospel H o u r for 18 years (from 1975-1990) and has served as the director for The H a n d s of Liberty since 1972.

Character comes under fire when the midnight oil starts burning. Serious cramming spurs serious pranks. Hard work requires hard play. Cramming begins with paranoia. You tell yourself "It isn't so," running to your trusty syllabus, only to find the truth. The killer assignment is due in less than 24 hours. You realize that you are missing notes because you skipped a few classes, so you call everyone you know to find someone with the data. After racing to the library to Having no fear of reprimands, two brave unknown pranksters declare Marriott a "BIOHAZARD" containing "infectous waste."

photocopy the notes you borrowed, you return to find your favorite roomie is asleep and the lights are turned off. You grab a pillow and take your research lab on the road. The hallway is off limits after curfew, but daring anyone to make you leave, you mull over the material in the text that you have never read. You will never learn from this grave mistake, but rather transform the cramming habit into an art form. This continued academic stress, coupled with the boredom of Lynchburg (in the Flames off-season) leads to another deadly student habit known as pranks. The freshman class inherits pranks from the

upper classmen such as ringing the Liberty Bell at 3 a.m. Juniors usually have taken things a couple steps further. Some even risk pulling the fire alarm for a stupid and dangerous 4:30 a.m. laugh. At curfew L U comes alive when these "creative" minds divert the energies of study to cause havoc on their halls by making up new pranks to the RAs. O n e professor, w h o wished to remain anonymous, commented about pranking genius, "All of m y students would get A's if they used this type of creativity on their assignments."

T h e 1995-96 intramural sports year was definitely exciting and full of change. A s fall began with flag football and tennis, the winter led to basketball, indoor soccer (a n e w sport this year), and floor hockey. Spring then forced its w a y through, and so did Softball. N e w this year was the number of co-ed sports that were offered. Jeff Smyth, director of intramural sports, noticed the female interest in intramurals w a s dwindling. H e responded quickly by adding more co-ed sports with the intention of getting males to recruit more females to play. The idea worked. This year, there w a s a 25 percent increase in female athletes. Julie Ainsley said, "It was good to be able to get together with other Christians and play ball. W e were there to have fun, cheer each other on, and come together as a team." Last summer, the Student Life Office, Student Government Association and Liberty University Athletic Association teamed u p to m a k e some physical changes to the intramural program. The result: the intramural

fields were reseeded and an irrigation system was installed. Because of the growing number of injuries from gravel and rocks in the fields, these changes were necessary. Thanks to the improvements, no major

injuries occurred on any of the fields this year. Softball participant Faith Cranford said: "Intramurals were a fun and exciting way for all students to participate athletically here at school. I've always loved playing softball and intramurals allowed m e to play the game I love."

W h e t h e r catching the winning pass in the end zone, scoring the go-ahead goal or cranking out a homerun, the Flames give their whole heart in athletic competition. In the past 25 years, LU's sports program has sprung from nothing into a growing, dominant force in the Big South.

After a 3-2 start, the Flames decided it was time to get to work. Rolling over tough opponents such as Delaware State, Hampton, and Central Florida (which was ranked at number 19), the Flames catapulted themselves to an 8-3 finish. "For us to go down to Orlando and come out with a victory against Central Florida was magnificent," wide receiver Courtney Freeman said. With offensive threats like Lawrence Worthington and Antwan Chiles, the Flames became the 14th best scoring offense in the nation, with a 32-point average per game.

In their final six games, the Flames racked up five wins while holding opponents to 12.5 points per game. If the Flames had w o n their g a m e against Georgia Southern at the end of the season, they would have played in the postseason for the first time.

The men's soccer team experienced an up and d o w n season, with injuries hindering the team's efforts. Senior brothers Jeff and Joel Johnson led Liberty's scoring attack, lifting the Flames to victory on numerous occasions.

Highlights of the season included coming within one goal of defeating the defending national champion Virginia Cavaliers in Charlottesville. The Flames led for nearly 50 minutes of the game, but fell to UVa.,

Virginia and Virginia Tech slowed the Flames' start, but they kicked into overdrive as the season drew to a close. The Flames entered the Big South Tournament as a second seed but were considered the favorites to win because of their home court advantage.

17-12, being a number two seed in the tournament, and getting to the championship game were all good, but they weren't the ultimate goal which was to win the Big South Tournament and go to the N C A A Tournament." The Lady Flames experienced a trying season, but they kept a positive attitude. Throughout the season they experienced long losing streaks, but they played with the same intensity with which they began the season. "We had the talent, but sometimes you can work really hard, and the ball just won't go through the hoop," center Michelle W y m s said. "However, our team unity was as strong as ever, and God was and is a major part of our lives on and off the court." The Lady Flames were seeded last in the Big South Tournament and were knocked out in the first round by U N C Greensboro. "I know that

Student-led Bible studies also sprang up on campus. Sophomore Shane Prewitt started a weekly Bible study because he wanted to have better fellowship with other believers. "It's a time where people can bring their problems to other believers and grow together in Christ." Throughout the year students regularly had the opportunity to witness to the residents of Lynchburg.

You could just tell that God was present and the Holy Spirit was working," junior Melissa Smith said about a retreat her church group took to the beach. Music is an important part of worship at Liberty. Junior Sarah St. John, a member of LIGHT singers, sees her singing as an act of worship and as a

direct way to get into God's presence. However, she also said that because she is part of a ministry team, sometimes it's hard Sarena Beasley to remember her purpose for Prayer leader Corrinne Negley listens attentively to counsel from Campus Pastor singing.

Concerts provided students a chance to take a break from classes and jobs and enjoy popular music in a Christian atmosphere. Student Life organized each concert and offered discount or free tickets to all L U students. Dove award winners D C Talk, Audio Adrenaline, Jars of Clay, and Geoff Moore and the Distance were some of the highly talented music groups that performed in the Vines Center. Students also captured the sounds of up-and-coming artists such as Three Crosses, Benjamin, Greg Long, Joanna Carlson, Big Tent Revival, Michael O'Brien and Sierra. PFR, Truth, W e s King and Newsong also made appearances at LU. "The concerts at Liberty were very energetic, motivating and exciting to attend," Giles Hoback said. "None of them was a letdown."

-TAOl by Maina Mwaura & Joanna Tedder As Liberty celebrated its silver anniversary, Homecoming focused on the changes that have occurred on Liberty Mountain during the past 25 years. Many of the alumni returned to find that the quiet campus they remembered, with the chapel tent and DeMoss-under-construction, had evolved into a bustling campus revolving around the Vines Center and a completed academic facility. Guided tours were offered to alumni to give them a closer look at the changes that have been made at LU. The weekend opened with a special convocation service honoring alumni w h o have made outstanding achievements in their fields. Also, former student vice president Ed Dobson spoke at the annual alumni banquet.

Because many Liberty students live hundredsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;or even thousands â&#x20AC;&#x201D; of miles from Lynchburg, Homecoming is an ideal opportunity to renew old friendships. Current L U students also enjoy seeing friends w h o have recently graduated.

Continual exposure to the greatest speakers and evangelists in the world gives students an opportunity to enhance their spiritual lives. Throughout each semester, various weeks, days and evenings are set aside as a time to listen and take action. Fall Spiritual Emphasis Week, featuring Randy Hogue, will ever be remembered for the sermon entitled, "The Elevator to Hell." H e said that the idea came from a sermon Jonathan Edwards used in the 1740s. "He would ask his congregation to imagine they were in a furnace, sitting, not on pews, but hot coals of fire," Hogue said. Super Conference was dominated with the appearances of Dr. E.V. Hill, Dr. Adrian Rogers, and Speaker of the House,



N e w t Gingrich. L e w Weider, executive director of Super Conference, said that the purpose of the meetings was "equipping pastors, church leaders and laym e n to reach their communities for Christ." Thirty missions organizations challenged students with the need for world evangelism during World Impact Conference, Sept. 24-29 in DeMoss Hall and Vines Center. Jim O'Neill, director of missions at Liberty and Thomas Road Baptist Church, prayed that students would "respond to God's call upon their lives for missionary service, be sensitized to the needs of world evangelism and assist those w h o are called." The result: a response of 245 students.

Military Emphasis Day brought in guest speaker Tim Lee, a Vietnam veteran w h o challenged students to stop running from God and to rededicate their lives to the Lord. Instilling in students a passion for youth, a biblical philosophy and the importance of prayer were the purposes of Youth Emphasis Week, according to D o u g Randlett, chairman for the department of church ministries. Throughout the week, 15 youth leaders from churches across the country spoke in 27 sessions and visited youth ministry classes.

Picture this: two friends reminiscing over days gone by, when suddenly they recall their trip to Paris. As music plays softly in the background, a voice is heard singing, "Celebrate the moments of your life." The scene ends with them laughing over steaming cups of coffee. Sound familiar? It's a commercial for General Food's International Coffees. Liberty has its o w n night to celebrate and reminisce with dear friends - Coffee House. While students drink coffee, the emcee makes them laugh as he explores pressing campus issues such as dorm life and long lines.

Almost everybody's done it. If not, they've seen other people do it — mix up flavorful concoctions at Marriott. But do these wonderful meals always taste as good or as bad as they look?

ries from the waffle bar. Another variation called "strawberry bagel soup" was created by sophomore Wendy Warburton. For this unique "soup," Warburton takes a bowl of strawberries from the waffle bar and puts chunks of a bagel in it. As far as desserts go, Moyer also enjoys a bowl of chocolate pudding topped with vanilla frozen yogurt and Oreo cookie crumbs. The cold yogurt and warm pud-

ding blend to make a delicious dessert, she said. For those w h o are more "daring" than most, the pasta casserole is just for them. They mix pasta, kidney beans, corn and mushrooms. However, they eat at their o w n risk. Finally, the taste of Mexican is only minutes away. By mixing sour cream, nacho cheese and salsa, a delicious dip is made for dunking nacho chips. Besides Marriott's surprise casseroles and confusing whipped cream with sour cream, most mixtures turn out tasting quite good.

Is this great or what? Diana Fox, Geoff Campbell, Antonio Duquette, David Provost and Jennifer Pentalow are obviously happy with their food selections... their plates are all empty. Dave Dershimer

Another aspect of the trip included lessons in Palestinian geography and history. "It was beautiful, in a different way.

This year has truly seen "the best of times and the worst of times." And to borrow another cliche, "Parting is such sweet sorrow." Laura, I miss you already. W h e n I think of you, m y prayers will be for your strength next year. Dennis, your unique perspective on life and sense of humor are unequalled. W h e n I travel past farms, I will think of you. Matt of the photo lab, good luck with doing this all over again next year. W h e n I see mental patients, I will wonder if you will become one next year. Auburn, I will Ifinallymade it through yet another miss all of your music, jokes and year of Selah. Somehow I just haven't laughter. W h e n I hear country music been the same since. Maybe it's all I'll remember our late nights. Joanna, those late nights, last minute good luck next year. Whenever I see a interviews or the chair races. I just tow truck, I'll think of our little don't know, but I wouldn't trade it for adventure. To m y church, friends, anything! I've enjoyed every minute of family and God, thank you for a it! Lisa, I'm really going to miss you. memorable year. Lisa, Dennis, Auburn and Joanna, it's not going to be the same without you. Good Luck, Guys!!!


W e l l , it's been interesting following in Tom's mouseprints. It has been a rough

but wonderful trip! I know I will miss late nights in the graphic and yearbook labs, middle of the night runs to Kroger and all the people w h o m a d e those long nights bearable. I won't miss early mornings with the work incomplete, middle of the night runs to the hospital and the people w h o used all the computers, yet w e are still alive (and still doing the work). Life won't be the same without Lisa—my lab buddy, A m y — m y partner in crime, Noise—my musical entertainment, Michie—my roommate and best friend, everyone on the staff (Dennis, Matt, Laura and Joanna— God bless you!) and m y quad-mates (Dottie, Jessica, Michelle, Lori and Tamara—you guys were the best!)
