The beaches \vere empty, summer camps closed their 
doors and the leaves changed their colors ever so slightly. 
These were sure signs that summer had come to an end and 
once again, school was back in session. 

As students poured back on to campus, they were faced 
Avith the same old problems- w^here to park, dealing with 
difficult roommates, financial aid woes, class scheduling 
traumas and career dilemmas. 

However, bold new questions w^ere thrown at stu- 
dents from every direction. Was it racist to call ourselves 
the Seminoles and continue "the chop" after we were so 
proud when our football team ^von their first Atlantic 
Coast Conference title? (Continued on page 5)

Were all of the allegations about cocaine addiction and sexual 
misconduct about respected history professor Dr. David 
Ammerman true? What would happen to the United States 
now that a democratic president had taken control of the 
White House? Would the standard of living and the economy 
improve or get ^vorse? Why did it become almost impossible 
for English majors to enroll in their classes? 

No matter how their questions were answ^ered, the year 
began on a controversial note. Students tried to maintain 
their sanity and keep themselves focused on their future 
challenges, while dealing with the changes of the day.

challenge her opponents. 

Courage described the student victims of Hurricane

"Please enter your social security number followed 
by the pound key, now, " hummed the impersonal 
computer voice from the other end of the telephone 
line. Although many students would have relished 
taking a chain saw to their telephones during 
registration, they called continually until they had their 
schedules bordering on perfection. Some students 
juggled their schedules around their source of income 
while others planned their classes around interests 
such as sunbathing, catching their soap operas or just 
maintaining the appropriate eight hours of sleep. 

"I schedule my classes in the morning because I 
w^ork in the afternoon," Wakulla High School football 
coach Bert Johnson said. 

"I take classes according to my sleep schedule," 
criminology major Mike Allen said. "My classes don't 
start until 1 1 a.m. on Monday, Wednesday and Friday 
and I'm done before 1 p.m. " 

"All my classes are in the afternoon because I'm a 
French major. The upper level French classes are in 
the afternoon, " senior Laura Leduc said. "I guess 
French professors really dislike morning classes." 

Athletes faced the insurmountable task of organizing 
their days and nights around grueling hours of practices. 
However, their schedules did not prove to be a problem 
because the athletic department emphasized academics. 
" Having to rearrange our schedules around practice 
for baseball is not a hassle because we have an academic 
advisor just for us," baseball player Doug 
Alientkiew^iczy said. "If we have to make an exception, 
the coaching staff will do their best to work around my 

"It's really not a problem at all because due to 
athletic priorities, we get the classes we need, when we 
need them," left fielder Clint Hendry said. 

Many students who lived off campus took the 
increasing problem of parking into consideration w^hen 

they registered. Because there were only 8, 000 parking 
spaces and there were some 25,000 students living off 
campus, some did not want to take the chance of 
missing a class because they got trapped in the quest of 
campus parking. 

"I basically schedule around parking. All of my 
classes are in the morning so I can get a space, " junior 
Sarah Bull said. "They're all close together, so I don't 
have to leave campus. I guess that's about parking, 
too. " 

For many, the ideal schedule consisted of classes 
that were as close together as possible. This eliminated 
the problem of being in limbo for a few hours with 
nothing more appealing to do than procrastinate. 

"I schedule my classes close together so I only have 
fifteen minutes between them," theater major Laura 
Conners said. "The more time I have between classes, 
the slimmer the chances are that I'll go. " 

"My classes are right after each other, so I don't 
have to leave the engineering campus and come back, " 
civil engineering major George Katsaras said. 

Other students, especially freshmen, were not so 

"I scheduled around what I could get. I have five 8 
a.m. classes! I just took whatever was available," 
freshman Chris Daughtry said. 

Although a day in the life of a college student could 
be hectic beyond belief, students were surprised to find 
themselves having time to kill between classes. For 
many, this brief respite was a godsend, the perfect 
chance to relieve stress and let the heart rate return to 

"I study most of the time, but when I'm done, I 

watch the people go by, " freshman Roxanne Voorting 

said. "To tell the truth, I love the grass and trees on 

Landis Green. It looks like a postcard or something.

Business major Hilda Cenecharles said she found her

"When I don't go to the Hbrary to study, I go to Club

The Union offered activities for students between 
classes. It met the four basic needs of college students: 
food, drink, socialization and even peace. Students 
picked up mail from Mom and Dad, stood in the ATM 
line and grabbed some Twinkies at the Corner Grocery 
"On Wednesdays, I go to the flea market at the Union 
to hear the band," clinical psychology major Jen Paxton 

"This is just like Disney World, " freshman Paul Zimski

Some spent their time doing things that they would 
rather not be doing, such as heading oil to that oh-so- 
underpaying part-time job, trying to find the last parking 
space leh on campus or waiting on the bus that decided 
to orbit the moon instead of circling campus. 

Handling financial aid hassles was a dreaded task for 
students to try to complete between classes. 

"I spent five hours dealing with my financial aid and 
it is still not straightened out, ' transfer student Lauwyna 
Fountain said. " I got two tickets before I got out of there. " 

When students began planning for the next semester 
classes, it seemed as though they were reaching to grasp 
that ideal schedule which always managed to elude them. 
This scheduling battle served many purposes in the long 
run, as students were not only forced to learn how to 
balance their limited time but also how to handle the 
responsibility of free time when they found it. 

"My classes began by Murphy's Law- everything I 
wanted was closed, so I just nabbed available spots," 
junior International Affairs major Raquel Alfaro said. "I 
have a 1:30 class on Monday, Wednesday and Friday 
and an 8:00 every day. I had to rearrange the rest of my 
life around that so everything would balance out. Luckily, 
I was able to get a job where I can -work lunch shifts and 
make a few bucks."

12 Homecoming 

A Week Of 

Whether an alumni, a student, 
a faculty member or just a 
supporter of the University, 
everyone "discovered" something 
new about the Seminole tradition. 

Homecoming '93 was, tor all 
who participated, a fun-filled 
week with continuous celebrating 
at the Moon, The Club Down 
Under and all over campus. 
People enjoyed great music and 
good food along with an evening of 
comedy and talent at 
Homecoming Pow Wow. 

The week ended with the 
homecoming football game 
against the University ol 
Maryland and the crowning of the 
Chiel and Princess. 

The theme for this year was 
"Discovery." Competitions were 
held throughout the week 
between the fraternities and 
sororities to see who would be 
crowned as Homecoming 
champions. The Greeks were 
paired for each of the 

The various activities carried 
on through the week gave alumni 
and others a chance to see the 
many changes going on here at the 

"It's amazing to see the new 
buildings and the overall 
growth of the campus" Lynn 
Jones, a 1990 graduate, said. 

With the addition of the 
Bobby E. Leach Workout 
facility, the University Center 
and other dormitory buildings 
on campus, many alumni 
returned to see an impressive 

The week began with 
entertainment of all kinds such 
as The New Dread Zepplin at 
The Moon and The Blues Fest 
and "Tallahassee Homegrown 
'92" on the Union Green. The 
Blues Fest included The 
Mighty Blues Band and other 
groups. The "Tallahassee 
Homegrown '92 " was a festival 
of music including such bands 
as Cold Water Army, The 
Mustard Seeds and Felix 

"The music was great; it's 
nice to know that we have local 
entertainment, "sophomore 
Dana Walker said.

the annual homecoming 
parade. Fraternity and sorority

floats, cars with distinguished 
faculty and administration, the 
Marching Chiefs, several campus 
organizations and Chief Osceola 
and Renegade traveled down 
Jefferson Street in front of several 
hundred excited spectators. The 
float competition was fierce 
between the sororities, 
fraternities and organizations. 
Delta Gamma and Lambda Chi 
Alpha won first place, Alpha Chi 
Omega and Pi Kappa Phi took 
second, and Phi Mu, Sigma Pi and 
Alpha Epsilon Pi finished third. In 
the student organization division, 
Alpha Kappa Psi business 
fraternity finished first. United 
Latin Club placed second and the 
School of Nursing's entry 
clenched third. 

Other festivities including the 
Homecoming Pow Wow w^hich 
was a fun evening that began with 
an almost full house at the Leon 
County Civic Center. The 
Marching Chiefs, the Varsity 
Cheerleaders and the Golden 
Girls provided the entertainment 

along w^ith comedians Kevin 
Nealon, Bob Cat Goldthwaite 
and Julia Sweeny. 

"Everyone enjoyed Kevin 
Nealon. I think he was the best; 
the whole thing (Pow Wow) was 
great," Jeff Kershna said. 

"Skit Night" participants 
amused the Civic Center 
spectators with their creative and 
thematic performances. "A 
Seminole Celebration: Noles of 
America" was the theme of the 
Alpha Chi Omega and Pi Kappa 
Phi skit. They tied for first place 
with Kappa Alpha Theta w^ith 
their spirited entry. 

Regardless of the outcome, 
everyone enjoyed a week of 
homecoming festivities. 

"I made so many friends 
during homecoming. Working 
closely with so many people, it's 
hard not to become close friends," 
Delta Zeta senior fashion 
merchandising major Misty 
Farrow said.

Discovery (Continued from page 14) 

Comedian Chris Rock, who got 
his start on "Saturday Night Live, " 
was scheduled to appear with 
Nealon and Sweeny, but due to 
problems was replaced by Bob 
Cat Goldthwait. Many who 
attended Pow Wow enjoyed his 
"off the wall " performance. 

"I loved it. He (Goldthwait) 
did a great show and a very 
different one, too" Senior Heather 
Schroeder said. 

Pow Wow was not only a night 
of laughter for those who 
attended, but also an evening of 
the Seminole tradition. The 
competition for Homecoming 
Chief and Princess was stiff with 
ten very ^vorthy students vying for 
the title. The award was based on 
academic achievement, general 
knowledge of the University, 
poise and conversational ability 
and qualities that they held which 
added credit and honor to the 

All the candidates were worthy 
of the title; however, only two 

could take the crown. Emcee 
Gene Deckerhoff presented W. 
Calvin Smith II and Sonja Clark 
as the Chief and Princess. 
Crowning their successors were 
1991 Chief and Princess Abner 
Devallon and Sandi Leff. First 
runners-up were Allen Durham 
and Nicole Batchelor. The court 
included Janice Dusseau, Patrick 
Mannion, Gina Myatt, Chuck 
Nussmeyer, Rebekka Buckhalt 
and Jeff Hopkins. 

Homecoming was a week of 
tradition for all at the University. 
It was a time for alumni to see a 
new campus, but also a time for 
them to reminisce on the 
wonderful memories they made 
while here. 

There \vas something for 
everyone to enjoy during the 
week, from great music to a 
fantastic football game on a 
beautiful day. No matter what the 
activity people participated in, 
there was excitement and a bold 
tradition in it all.

1 8 Student Life 




The appetizing steak and potatoes were a 
welcome reprieve from the normal nuked 
burritos. The smell of your mom's pies filled 
your nostrils andyour dog almost knockedyou 
down in his all too lovable greeting. If it was 
your first time, your mother gave a knowing 
sigh at your overflowing pile of laundry. If 
your were fortunate enough to have younger 
siblings, you marveled at how much they had 
changed. Your brother was not actually 
talking to girls w^henyou left for school was he? 
Was that makeup you saw on your sister's 
lace? Home was everything you remembered, 
yet somehow it was different. The feeling 
students got when they went home for the 
weekend could be described as almost eerie. 

'On my four-hour drive home, I ponder 
what will be different this trip," Orlando 
resident Wendy Exely said. "The first time I 
went home. Mom had planted flowers. The 
second time she had wallpapered the bathroom 
and the third time she'd done the kitchen as 
well. It's always an adventure to see what has 
changed about home this time." 

The first time I ^vent home it lelt like I was 
coming back from camp, but on the way back, 
it finally hit me that Tallahassee is where I live 
now," freshman Kristi Conklin said. 

"It's such a different feeling to go home 
again. When I get to the door, I knock and 
open it at the same time. Even though it's my 
home and it's where I grew up, I don't live there 
anymore," junior Jason Longman said. 

"I miss my little brother and sisters the most. 
They grow up so much while I'm away, " 
Jacksonville resident Nia Elliot said. 

Many freshmen felt overwhelmed with the 
desire to return to the security of their own bed 
and their old niche in society. Although many 
w^ent through what seemed like four years of 
high school hell, anticipating the day when 

they would finally be able to pack their bags and 
head otf to the big university, they often found 
themselves longing to be back home. 

"A lot of times, I'm more homesick when I 
come back than before I go, " Conklin said. "It 
brings it all back to mind and makes me miss 
everything even more. " 

"My first semester in college, I went home 
every other weekend, even though it was six 
hours away, " Immokalee resident Neida 
Schooler said. 

Many students were not lucky enough to 
visit home as much as they \vished. Out-of- 
state students often had to wait until Christmas 
and summer breaks before seeing their family. 
However, when it was possible to return 
home, students raked in the advantages. 
Students grabbed the open opportunity to 
pump up the Tallahassee bank account, stock 
the fridge with pity-hlled home cooked meals 
and fill their closets with new clothes. 

"My car is always more full coming back to 
Tallahassee than going home, " English major 
Kara Raines said. "I go shopping every time I 
go home without fail." 

Home was always a welcome sight for 
students. With the daily stress of college life, 
nothing seemed to relieve the tension of the 
overworked student better than a visit with the 
family. Although home could be described as 
only a building made of walls, these walls 
encompassed all of the memories that made 
home so special. These same walls w^elcomed 
students back and seemed to remind them not 
only of who they were and how they got there, 
but also of where they had once been and what 
they had endured to get there. 

As the weekend ended, Monday came all too 
soon and students found themselves sitting in 
class holding a bit more of the walls than they 
had on Friday.

20 Student Life 





Hurricane Andrew drove through southern 
Florida devastating the property of local residents. 
Families were left homeless, without food and water. 
Although relief efforts immediately formed around the 
state nothing seemed to fill the needs of those affected by 
the destructive storm. Residents became refugees in their 
own land and they were forced to rely on the kindness of 
total strangers for their survival. 

Approximately 20,000 families received 
vouchers to get resettled and Red Cross officials estimated 
that 40,000 more families needed similar help. Ironically 
enough, the Red Cross had its hands full with typhoon 
victims in Guam and Hawaii and flood victims in the 
Midwest, as well as the families of Homestead. The 
Salvation Army also brought vans into the city with hot 
meals and cold drinks. Their carpenters immediately 
began work on repairing houses and joined the efforts of 
several local church organizations in their quest. 

The Federal Government moved families into 
portable metal homes and several relief agencies began 
builing new houses. Four days after the hurricane, 20,000 
soliders arrived in Homestead and the greater Miami area 
to help with the efforts. Strict curfews were enforced by 
the military men to deter vandals from taking ^A'hat little 
was left from local businesses and other personal 
belongings. Road blockades were set up which made 
entrance into the city difficult. Those who fled the area had 
to show definite proof of residence in order to be admitted 
into the city to return to what was left of their homes. 

In addition to the federal aid, thousands of men 
and women came from all over the United States. Many 
were from South Carolina and had survived Hurricane 
Hugo two years ago. The enormous number oi volunteers 
treated the victims with kindness and generosity. 

" I couldn't believe the amount of support that we 
received. People were so kind. The last thing that I 
expected was the work of the Army, though," Rose Acosta, 
a Homestead resident, said. 

The Red Cross generated $59 million and the 

Salvation Army $10 million for the reconstruction of the 
disintegrated city. 

Tractor trailers brought tons of food, building 
supplies, mountains of used clothing and the equivalent of 
lakes in drinking water. Most of the donated goods went to 
the survivors. However, during the initial confusion, some 
of the shipments were accidentally dumped outdoors. 
Cartons of food broke open in the rain and great piles of 
clothes were soaked and had to be thrown away. 

Insurance companies worked feverishly on 
homeowner, life and auto claims for their clients. 

Despite positive volunteer efforts, some added 
more problems to an already desperate situation. Landlords 
forced residents to continue payment on their property and 
rented apartments. If they refused, eviction was eminent. 

Even with all the government and local help, 
universities around the state felt it was time to step in and 
help out. The relief effort was started as a result of a 
conversation Student Body President, Jeanne Belin had 
with University of Miami Student Body President David 

T v/as interested in this project because I was 
aware of the devastation the students would face. Plus I 
have family down there and I was concerned about their 
welfare," Belin said. 

Once Belin finished speaking with Diamond, she 
contacted the Vice President's Project Council to see if they 
wanted to help. The VPPC responded immediately by 
forming groups and calling the papers to get community 
support. Carrie Pollock, a member of student government, 
was chosen to head the relief project by the VPPC. 

"I always wanted to be a part of Student 
Government. I contacted Jeanne Campbell and soon after 
was involved with the VPPC. I took on the relief effort 
because I am from Miami and I knew they could use 
anything we could give them, " Pollock said. 

Another key player in organizing the relief effort 
\vas food services director Joe Pianese.

"I don't know if we could have done 
it without Joe. He was an integral part of our 
operation. Without his leadership, things may 
not have gone so well, " Belin said. 

Pianese said that when he saw the 
destruction in the Miami area he knew 
something had to be done. 

"I was talking to the Marriott folks 
about Miami and Florida International and 
what we could do, and that same day I saw 
that Jeanne was urging people to give canned 
goods to the effort. I figured we should get 
together and see what we could do. We 
\veren't sure \vhat they needed but we figured 
they would need the basic items for survival 
like water, nonperishable food and clothing, " 
Pianese said. 

Pianese, along with food services 
manager Bob Gibson, gathered supplies such 
as tar paper and other roofing tools and drove 
down to Miami the Wednesday following the 

"Originally, the University of Miami 
didn t want to become a relief site, but after the 
damage was surveyed, it became apparent 
that the use of the facility, along with Florida 
International University, would be necessary 

to aid in the effort," Pianese said. 

"Miami mostly needed tar paper to 
help patch ceilings and replace roofs and 
Florida International needed clothes, water 
and canned goods," Pianese said. 

Pianese and Gibson left Wednesday 
for Miami and noted that the turnpike 
reserved two areas at each toll so those helping 
out in the relief effort could avoid the burden 
of paying to get to their destination. 

"Everyone was helpful going down 
there and once we arrived. Bob and I both had 
friends that lived in Fort Lauderdale so we also 
had a place to stay. That made things a lot 
easier," Pianese said, "we even made it back to 
Tallahassee Thursday evening." 

Although the effort went well, south 
Florida still required more help. 

"We're now working on a project to 
get supplies to the Indians in the Everglades, 
everyone seems to have forgotten about them. 
We're going to use all of our resources to help 
as many people as we can," Belin said. 

'This project will be going on for a 
long time. It involves all of us regardless of 
\vhere we live. There's still a lot that needs to 
be done," Pollock said.

kJ the point V«^ 

7:49 A.M. You rolled over and glared at your alarm 
clock. You had an 8 a.m. class in the Diffenbaugh Building 
which was 20 minutes away. You grabbed a hat, brushed 
your teeth and rushed away on your bike only to find 
yourself locked out of the classroom becauseyou were late. 
You had to meet with your professor but he did not 
return any of your 12 messages. Your advisor did call, 
however, something about a grad check. You hadn't 
bought groceries in four days, unlessyou counted spaghetti 
noodles and Froot Loops, and your electricity would have 
been turned off Wednesday ifyou had not rolled change to 
pay the bill. To top it off, you had three finals Friday and 
you worked until closing every night this week. 

And this was just Monday. 

Many students were excited to finally be on their own, 
oblivious to all of the responsibilities that came along with 
being a college student. Finally, their own apartment, their 
own life, their own set of rules. 

"Class? What? Only 12 hours aAveek? I went to high 
school seven hours a day, five days a week. This should be 
a breeze, right?" 

Nationwide, campus psychologists said they were 
seeing a generation sick with anxiety. Dr. Robert 
Gallagher of the University of Pittsburgh ran an annual 
survey of college counseling service directors. He reported 
that the number of students who were coming into 
counseling centers with severe psychological problems 
increased by 31 percent since 1988. 

"Students are coming in more stressed, with more 
serious concerns," Gallagher said. 

Students often found themselves overwhelmed with the 
responsibilities that accompanied adulthood. That 
growing up equals stress was soon found to be as 
universally understood as one plus one equals two. 
How^ever, it was up to the individual student to find 
creative ways to deal with this stress and alleviate the 

problem as much as possible. 

"I like to w^atch football because I can yell and scream and 
get out all of my frustrations," Kerry Gordon, a junior in 
international affairs, said. 

"I like to mdulge myself ^A'hen I'm stressed. It's nice to 
plop in front of the television with some homemade cookies 
or go buy myself a new outfit," junior Melanie Leaman said. 
Although being involved in the many campus 
organizations often proved to be more stressful than stress 
relieving, there were certain exceptions to this rule. 

"When I feel like I'm starting to stress, I find that doing 
banners with Garnet and Gold Girls on Wednesday nights 
helps. It relaxes my mind and it's so nice to not have to do 
anything right or give the right answers. It's okay ifyou go 
out of the lines," chemical engineering major Stephanie 
Pullmgs said. 

Many students lound themselves depending on personal 
employment in order to make ends meet each month. This, 
coupled with the usual stress of school, could truly weigh a 
person down. 

According to Elizabeth Nuss, executive director of the 
National Association of Student Personnel Administrators, 
public university students across the country were working 
more, having a harder time getting into classes, taking 
longer to graduate and, in some cases, leaving school. 

"Being a senior, I have all of this added pressure to decide 
what I'm going to do with the rest of my life. My job, 
telemarketing, tends to put a strain on my time more than 
anything else. It not only limits me in the time that I have to 
study but also in the time I have for myself, " speech 
pathology major Gina Drago said. 

"When stressed, one should always keep things in 
perspective and not overreact to the situation," junior Will 
Lesnick said. "After all, 10 years from now, will it really 
matter that you bombed your first calculus test or that your 
VISA bill was occasionally late? " 

Probably not. 


Stress 25 





The stars, a blazing yellow, the sky, a thick midnight 
blue, the city below surrounded by dark evergreens and a 
black night. 

This painting, "A Stary Night," by Vincent VanGogh is 
an example of what many students thought of when they 
thought of art. Or maybe they thought of the University's 
fine arts center and its plays and musicals presented by 
students, or even the small student art gallery at the center, 
but many were shocked to hear of a new fine arts and 
cultural center to be built in Tallahassee. 

While many considered the new^s positive, others viewed 
the center a waste of good time and money. 

The proposed arts and cultural center was the idea of 
concerned citizens interested in bringing the arts and art 
education to the community. The proposed center would 
be located in downtown Tallahassee near the Leon County 
Civic Center and would include three galleries lor "art 
exhibition " including spaces for touring shows, galleries 
with educational exhibitions and a sculpture court. There 
would be an interactive media gallery with the latest in 
computer and laser technology so students would have 
hands-on experiences w^ith art education. 

Proponents such as Susan Saldino, Director of the 
Museum of Art/ Tallahassee, cited improvements in 
cultural development, economic growth, social interaction 
and an improved image of the city of Tallahassee as reasons 
for the center's development. 

"The most important thing the Museum of Art/ 
Tallahassee has tried to bring to our city is an exhibit of fine 
art never before seen here and an innovative art education 
program for children and adults " Baldino said. 

The "You Gotta Have Art " campaign by the cultural 
center was used to help raise awareness of the facilities and 
to get people to vote on the referendum for the project. The 
H.E.A.R.T. campaign cited three benefits that the center's 
existence would bring about. Elducation was a prime 
objective of the facilities along with the economic benefits 
for the city and it's residents. 

The referendum was voted on Feb. 23 to decide whether 
the museum and fine arts center would receive city funds to 
help finance the project. It was estimated that 35 percent of 
the funding for the museum and 50 percent of the funding 
for the fine arts center w^ould come from the city. 

While Tallahassee was asked to give financial aid, other 
revenue sources provided more than half of the money 
needed. Sources such as state and federal grants and 
corporate and private donations were a part ot the 

The referendum was voted down by citizens. Some 
cited the supposed effect on their utility bills as a reason for 
the failure. They felt that their bills would be increased in 
order to finance the center, while, in truth, the money for 
the museum and cultural center would have come from the 
city's General Fund, hence, the facility's funding w^ould 
come from money given to the city by citizens for different 
projects, which, included the fine arts complex. 

Voting for the museum would not have increased the 
customers bill, nor would it decrease the bill if the customer 
voted against the museum. Proponents cite this 
misunderstanding as one of the major reasons for the failure 
of the referendum. 

" It is frustrating to see all of the hard work that goes into 
bringing the museum to life torn apart by a 
misunderstanding " Heather Schroeder, a volunteer 
student, said. 

Although there \vas oppostion towards the center's 
development, many citizens felt strongly about continuing 
the push for the building of the facilities. The search for 
funding continued and it was proposed by the mayor, 
Dorothy Inman-Crews, that a referendum for the center be 
put on the ballot in February of 1994. She plans to start a 
petition drive which would show public interest in the 
project. The cultural center faced opposition, yet continued 
w^ith the support of many in the community, to bring arts 
and art education to Tallahassee.

when the budget cuts began hitting home with 
Florida's students, the Florida Student Association decided 
to do something about it. They organized two student 
rallies that converged upon the capitol, letting the 
legislators know that students did care, and yes, students 
did vote. 

"Vision '92 was unique in that students actually worked 
together to find answers rather than just pointing out 
problems, " delegate Joe Minor said. 

FSA's next step was a brave endeavor into student 
empowerment. They no longer encouraged students to 
"skip class today" and join in a march to the capitol, they 
actually gave student leaders a chance to interact with 
today's political figures. Representing the 187,000 public 
university students in the state , FSA joined with the 
community colleges and private universities to sponsor 
Vision '92 Empowering Florida's Future. A two-day, non- 
partisan, political student convention which took place on 
the University of Central Florida campus in September, 
Vision was the first of its kind. 

"We want to show the nation that tomorrow's leaders are 
prepared to start working today to insure a prosperous 
future, " Tracy Newman, director of FSA special projects 
and Vision co-chair, said. "Student involvement is essential 
il Florida is ever going to reach the level ol education that 
we not only w^ant, but the level that we deserve." 

FSA was formed in 1976 by a group of student leaders 
to represent the views of the nine state universities within 
the state of Florida. During the 16 years of existence, it has 
become known as one ol the largest and most effective 
student lobby groups in the country. The association was 
composed of the student body presidents of the nine state 
universities and a permanent staff of five including two full- 
time lobbyists. 

FSA brought together the top 382 student leaders ol the 
1 .2 million post-secondary students in the state to formulate 

a platform on education. The number of students each 
school sent was based upon student population with five 
base delegates plus one delegate per 1,000 students. In an 
effort to maintain maximum diversity, these delegates were 
chosen by the universities' student body presidents based 
upon leadership show^n through student organizations. 

The Vision '92 platform addressed 10 educational areas: 
tuition, differential tuition, financial aid and scholarships, 
libraries, student regent, academic quality, dorm fees, 
Florida Public Interest Research Group, Florida's Office of 
Campus Volunteers and budget. 

The convention served as a catalyst to present a student 
agenda on issues relevant to the present state of education. 
The platform was designed to serve as a guideline to both 
state and national leaders, so that the needs of American 
students could be better understood. This very platform, 
designed entirely by Vision delegates, was hand-delivered 
to each of the presidential candidates at the presidential 
debate held in Lansing, Michigan. 

Vision allowed students to interact with current political 
leaders. On a local level, Governor Lawton Chiles 
addressed the convention, as did Eklucation Commissioner 
Betty Castor, Chancellor Charles Reed and Board ot 
Regents Chairman Alec Courtelis. 

Additional speakers included university student body 
presidents. State Representative Tom Feeney, President ol 
the American Bar Association Sandy D'Alemberte, State 
Representative Alzo Reddick, Jeb Bush and United States 
Secretary of ExJucation Lamar Alexander. 

"Once again Florida has led the way in student 
empowerment. For the first time the student voice was 
truly heard by today's political leaders, " student senate 
president Jenn Tankersley said. "We're finally taking 
control of our own future. "

The Blue Light Trail and the Escort Service were just a 
lew ot the measures taken to help protect students from 
becoming victims of campus crime. While these services 
have helped many students, another program, the Cops- 
on-Bikes patrol, was implemented on campus to help in 
responding to calls and working with students in a more 
personalized manner. 

Cities such as Las Vegas and Los Angeles have already 
used officers on bikes, because of the greater mobility and 
community involvement. 

"An officer on a bike is more one on one, there is more 
personal contact," FSU Police Lieutenant Jack Handley 

In an effort to beef up campus security. University 
President Dale Lick and Campus Police Chief Bill Tanner 
joined together in starting a trial program that began in the 
summer . They saw how the program worked in other cities 
and wanted to bring community policing to campus. In the 
fall, the campus police began patrolling on bikes 24 hours 
a day. 

"The officer on the bike handles the same type ol calls as 
the cruiser," Lt. Handley said. 

"The bikes respond to calls on the blue light trail faster 
than cruisers. A bike can get around more quickly and 
efficiently than a person on foot," Terri Brown, an officer in 
the program, said. 

"Most important, the bike is good for reaching areas you 
can't in a car, " officer Brown said. 

The program had four bikes on patrol, two were 
purchased by the department, one was a gift from the 
Student Alumni Association and the newest bike came 
from the Student Government Association. 

The cost of each bike was $750 plus another $600 to 
equip the officers for duty w^ith normal police gear and 

bicycle safety equipment. Police cruisers cost between 
$15,000 and $20,000 each, not including the $8,000 ayear 
for maintenance. 

"Though the bikes did not replace police vehicles, the 
school would save money in the long run," Handley said. 

Besides saving wear and tear on police cars, the 
mountain bikes kept the officers in top shape. While on 
duty, an officer might ride between 12 and 20 miles a day. 
Fitness was an important factor when condisering the new 

"It is very important to stay fit and healthy in this line of 
work," Brown said. 

With the implementation of the ne\v program, students 
had a better chance to get to know the police. This more 
personalized attention made students more likely to report 

"(The program) puts officers right there with the 
students," Officer Brown said. 

With its success on campus the city of Tallahassee Police 
Department was also considering the use of bike patrols to 
cut down on crime. 

""Currently, the city is entertaining going to a bike 
patrol," Lt. Handley said. 

On occasion, the program aided the Tallahassee Police 
Department in apprehending criminals outside campus 
walls. The all-terrain vehicles provided easy access to small 
areas such as woods and narrow paths. Another advantage 
of bike patrol was that the bikes were quiet and allowed an 
officer to sneak up on a crime. 

The cops-on-bikes patrol added to not only the safety 
on campus, but also gave the students more access to the 
police department and its officers. Progress in crime 
prevention was very successful through the 
implementation of this new patrol.

"Why me? What did I do? What did I ever do to 
deserve this? I had heard of it happening to friends of mine, 
but never thought in a milhon years it would be me, " a 
recent survivor of date rape said. " I am really scared. Not 
just scared of him. ' I am scared to walk down the street by 
myself, scared to go to out by myself and especially scared 
to go out on any date. I often still feel guilty, dirty and 
ashamed. I never thought it would happen to me, but it 

The statistics on women w^ho have been sexually 
assaulted have grown each year. It is estimated that when 
one rape is reported, ten have actually occurred. This does 
not necessarily mean that more women are being raped. It 
instead shows that more women are standing up for their 
rights. More women have come forward to say that they 
could not be taken advantage of and had a right to their own 

Tales of sexual assault and rape often bring to mind 
visions of a brawny, brutal looking man who makes a 
person shiver with fear. Although this is the picture that 
most people conjugate in their mind, it is not reality. 

Most women are raped by "average" acquaintances, 
people they know or have just met. When a person is raped 
by an average acquaintance it is called "date rape." 

In the fall, a total of 16 rapes were reported on campus. 
Of those 16 rapes, 1 1 were recent and five had occurred in 
the past. The women decided they needed help to recover 
from their past experience. They had been to the Office of 
Women's Concerns to report being raped and to seek help 
through counseling. 

Only four of these 16 victims had been raped by a 
stranger, according to the Office of Women's Concerns. 

"A date rape could happen to anyone... anywhere. 
Although in date rape a weapon may not be used to force 
someone to have intercourse, it is still a traumatic 
experience. The victim has no idea what will come next or 
what the attacker is capable of doing, " Lexie Jepson 
Rodgers from Office of Women's Concerns said. 

The Office of Women's Concerns began a Victim 
Advocate Program in conjunction with the University 
Police Department. A person from women's concerns ^vas 
on duty from 5 p.m. - 8 a.m. in case a victim decides to report 
a rape. The person followed up the next day to aid in more 
counseling and offer support. 

This was extremely helpful to the victim's recovery. The 
advocate on call was there to offer encouragement and 
support for the victim. It was the Police Department's 
responsibility to obtain information in case of prosecution. 
However, immediately following the rape was a difficult 
time tor the victim to relive the experience even to provide 
the information the police needed. 

The Office of Women's Concerns did not pressure the 
women to prosecute. They did educate the women who 
came in lor counseling on the options that are available. 

'" Twenty-five percent of women in college have been the 
victims of rape or attempted rape" stated a nationwide 
survey conducted by Ms. magazine, psychologist Mary P. 
Koss and the National Institute for Mental Health. 

Rape, however, did not only affect the ^vomen who are 
forced to endure this trauma, but it affected their friends and 
family as well. A women may become totally standoffish to 
her family, friends and boyfriend. Her trust of men was 
usually lost. It was a mental battle for all to endure and fight. 

"When my friend first told me [she had been raped] I felt 
hurt for her. Then I was angry toward the person who did 
this to her. I wish there could be a stronger sentence for 
those convicted," junior criminology major Scott Johnson 
said. "'It is a terrible crime for people to commit. I feel for 
all the women who have had to go through this painful 
ordeal. The men that do rape have a serious problem." 

"I was so angry when she told me. I w^as angry at the guy 
who had done this to her and angry that he left her feeling 
guilty," Trey Turner said. "I tried and tried to tell her it w^as 
not her fault and she w^as not the one to blame. But there 
were no w^ords to take her pain away so all I could was hold 
her. "

"Rape in Tallahassee a real possibiltiy " read a headline 
in the FSView. 

"Student raped near stadium," said an article in the 
Florida Flambeau. 

These articles depicted the harsh reality of rape and the 
fact that many students who attended the University had 
been assaulted, harrassed by a teacher or student, or raped 
by an acquiantance or a stranger. This ever increasing 
possibility of being a victim increased awareness oi 
students, teachers and faculty through programs such as 
"Stop Rape Week," which informed people of the 
possibility ot being assaulted and measures that would help 
to protect them. 

With statistics such as a report from the FBI saying that 
" 1 out of 6 w^omen w^ere vicitms of rape or attemped rape 
while in college" ( not including unreported batteries) there 
w^as a definite need for counseling and support for survivors 
of such a heinous act. 

The Office of Women's Services created a program to 
provide students counseling and support through The 
Victim Advocate Program, which helped victims who were 
assaulted and needed immediate counseling. 

This program made available advocates for students to 
talk to not only during the day, but also after 5 p.m. and on 
weekends. In the past immediate counseling was not 
offered after regular w^orking hours. The program was 
implemented to give support and information to victims 
according to their needs. 

"It's good to know that women have someone to turn to 
who will just listen. I have friends who have been harassed 
and didn't know ^vhat to do, but knowing there is 
someplace you can call just for information or support is 
great," sophomore Jean Kirkman said. 

The director of the Office of Women's Concerns, Lexie 
Jepson Rodgers, worked as an advocate in the program 
helping victims, primarily giving support and taking 
information when a student contacted her. The primary 
coordinator of the program was Connie Shanks who was 
the primary advocate working \vith students. 

'A feeling of safety and support are first provided, 
working on the immediate needs of the student. We're 
basically there as a support system for the student, " 
Rodgers said. 

This improved counseling helped students know their 
rights and the other alternatives open to them. Working 

with both the University and Tallahassee. Police 
Departments, the program allo^A'ed students to press 
charges or to report the crime for documentation and 
possible use later. 

"It's a positive improvement for students and a good 
support center for women," Misty Farrow, a Fashion 
Merchandise major, said. 

Support groups were also provided for students. These 
groups met at undisclosed times and locations for the safety 
of the victim. Anyone who was interested in the groups was 
encouraged to contact the office of Women's Concerns; all 
calls were screened before giving out any other information 
to callers. 

The efforts to support victims increased with the 
addition of The Sexual Assault Task Group, comprised of 
representatives of different areas around campus such as 
the Thagard Health Center, the Escort Service, the 
University police and the Housing Department. They met 
to look at preventative measures and responses to assaults 
on campus. They worked to educate members and get 
information from the representatives on improvements in 

"We basically feed off one another for information to 
help provide students \vith the right information and to 
close gaps and solve problems in programs, " Rodgeis said. 

The Office of Women's Concerns worked to improve 
response to a need for support and counseling and 
information, but statistics from the office of Women's 
Concerns showed that lastyear only 24 sexual batteries and 
four attempted assaults were reported. These numbers did 
not clearly indicate the number of assaults actually 
committed on campus because so many students did not 
report them. 

"We encourage people to report (sexual assaults). No 
one should be forced to go forward, but rather to report it 
for their own mental well-being and so the healing process 
can begin," Rodgers said. 

Students were encouraged to report any type of sexual 
battery from harassment to rape to the University police at 
64A-1259 or to the Victim Advocate Program at 644-2785. 
Whatever the choice of the student, the advocate 
program was there to support as well as inform students of 
their rights. This expanded and improving program 
helped students to not only find solutions to their problems, 
but also an advocate on campus. 


Counseling 35 




On March 12, the University's International Student 
Center celebrated its official grand opening and ribbon- 
cutting ceremony after four years of planning and 

But the Center was already moving in a fully functional 
capacity long before the ribbons were cut in Iront of several 
hundred spectators at its new home on Wildwood Drive. 

During most of the fall semester, anxious and dedicated 
staff prepared to make the newly-renovated building a 
second home for international students. Freshly-painted 
white washed walls with peach trimming enclosed nothing 
but new^ gray carpeting until the furniture, most of it 
donated, arrived to fill the three-story building. 

The former International Student Office located in 
Bryan Hall was cramped and lacking in the facilities 
necessary to meet the needs of the growing population of 
international students. 

The new center had a reception area and lounge in the 
entrance ol the building and modern staff offices 
throughout the entire entrance floor. The other levels had 
recreation facilities where students could relax with their 
peers and conference rooms available lor them to reserve for 
organization meetings. 

"It is very important to have a place for them to be 
comfortable," intern Judy Law^rence said. Lawrence 
assisted in the hosting program that placed international 
students with American host families. 

In 1989, Associate Vice President for Student Affairs 
Sherrill Ragans recommended an abandoned fraternity 
house for the center's future location, a site some criticized 
with skepticism. 

"Some said that it wouldn't work, " Ragans said. " It was 
a band of the faithful that made it happen." 

One of the faithful band, Roberta Christie ■ became the 
Center's Director. Christie introduced its motto, "We are 
open to the world," at the opening ceremony. 

"The Center is open tor the non-academic needs of over 

800 international students who come to FSU from 100 
different countries," Christie said. 

She cited the Center's openness to new^ cultures as 
support for these students {78 percent of whom ^vere 
graduate students) and support for their children and 

The Center operated on three levels: 1) immigration 
services, which helped international students stay \vithin 
their visa status, 2) orientation, which gave students a sense 
of -welcoming and adjustment and 3) cross-cultural 
training, \vhich educated students on aspects of American 
culture and allowed them to share their culture with others. 

At the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Dr. Jon Dalton, Vice 
President for Student Affairs, spoke on the importance of 
strengthening ties with international students based on his 
former contact with the international program at the 
University of Kentucky. 

"The Center will give visibility to others about 
international issues and it will give the international 
students facilities for support," Dalton said. 

University President Dale Lick hoped the Center would 
make the school a model of diversity and pluralism. 

"The ribbon cutting represents the removal of one more 
barrier of what \ve could do because of where we came 
from, " Lick said. 

The Center implemented its Brown Bag Luncheon 
series just a few weeks after its official grand opening. 
Students and community members brought their lunches to 
the Center and heard a series of speakers on different 
international issues. The series presented lectures such as 
"Human Rights in Haiti "and "An Introduction to the Peace 
Corps" usually led by experienced speakers and 
international students who helped to contribute to the goal 
of multi-culturalism. 

"By providing a service to the community and faculty, 
we hope it will increase awareness, " graduate assistant Alba 
Aguero said.

Debbie never thought about acquiring the AIDS virus 
until Steve, her boyi^riend of two years got a call f^rom an ex- 
girlfriend. She called Steve to tell him she was HIV-positive 
and suddenly Debbie and her boytriend laced the possibil- 
ity ot infection. 

"Itwasscary lor both of us to hear. ..but I'm truly gratelul 
she cared and let my boyfriend know. We are going to be 
tested," Debbie said. 

The Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome was the 
disease that infected Steve's ex-girlfnend and millions of 
others like her who may have had unprotected sex, shared 
a drug needle or received blood transfusions by infected 
carriers. AIDS was caused by the Human Immunodefi- 
ciency Virus which has been found to destroy the body's 
ability to fight illnesses. 

Once thought to be associated with homosexuals only, 
AIDS has become a globally threatening killer, nondis- 
criminatory to any race, creed or color. Unprotected sex, 
contaminated blood transfusions, IV drug use and mother 
to child transmission •were the main -ways AIDS found its 

Although a great deal about AIDS remained a mystery, 
much has been learned about its effects and characteristics. 
Extensive education, testing and counseling has been made 
available to University students. 

Thagard Student Health Center offered confidential 
HIV testing for students and faculty at a cost of $15. The 
confidential testing performed by Thagard Center was 
different from the anonymous testing offered at the Leon 
County Health Department because "confidential" meant 
the test result was put into the student's record instead of 
remaining anonymous. The test results were never re- 
ported but several doctors may have had access to these 
student records. 

To be tested, students must have had counseling to 
ensure the students' awareness of the possibilities and 
options available if they were infected with the virus. If 
students confessed to a dangerous lifestyle, counseling 
helped educate them on proper prevention of the AIDS 

virus and gave them advice on safer sex practices. Coun- 
seling was also been a useful tool to help students who 
tested positive to cope and get information. 

"So many college students have sex and don't use 
condoms. They think it won't happen to me. I'm young.' 
and that's just not the way it works, " AIDS activist Tim 
Greene said. 

It was estimated that one out of every 500 college 
students in the entire United States was infected with 
the AIDS virus and between October 1991 and October 
1992 and 31 percent of the cases were heterosexually 

Unfortunately, there was no successful treatment for 
AIDS, only medicine that has prolonged the lives of those 
tragically stricken with the deadly disease. 

Several organizations, hotlines and activists helped an- 
swer some of the questions about AIDS and raised money 
for research and health care for patients. 

One group of volunteer students known as "FSU To- 
day" completed a semester's worth of training to become 
qualified counselors for students. 

Skits on safer sex education were performed by the 
counselors in the dorms and Greek houses as well as for 
other organizations to promote AIDS awareness. 

The Names Project was a community organization that 
raised the money and effort to bring the traveling AIDS 
quilt to Tallahassee in fall 1993. Each section of the quilt 
represented someone's life before they died of AIDS. 
Whether it was a ballet slipper for a dancer or a wedding 
band sewn on to the quilt patch, it was an artistic and caring 
way to remember loved ones lost to AIDS. 

Students also volunteered for and received help from the 
Florida AIDS Hotline in Tallahassee. The hotline served 
callers seven days a week, addressing questions and con- 
cerns about AIDS under a code of confidentiality. 

The reality of AIDS affected everyones lives and in- 
fected some to the point of death. If estimates were correct, 
between 50-70 students on this campus alone may have 
already tested positive in just this past year. 


AIDS 39 


For years the Seminole Mascot has been a symbol of 
courage, strength and tenacity for many students and fac- 
ulty members at the University. However, Mike Haney, an 
official of the Seminole Nation in Oklahoma and a member 
of the board of directors for the National Coalition Against 
Racism in Sports and Music, found the mascot offensive. 

"(The Mascot) is as much a racial slur as the use oi 
blackface," Haney said, referring to white actors painting 
their faces black to perpetuate negative stereotypes of 
African Americans. 

Haney also cited other examples where he felt the Uni- 
versity demonstrated insensitivity towards the Seminole 
Indian culture. 

"The tomahawk chop simulates scalping, an act of vio- 
lence that the French and other Europeans practiced for 
the bounties on the scalps of my people: 80 cents for the 
men, 50 cents for the ^A'omen and 40 cents for the children," 
Haney said. 

Haney demanded such Seminole traditions be abol- 
ished and that the University eventually drop the Seminole 
mascot altogether. He threatened to file suit against the 
University if satisfactory results were not reached by a 
specified deadline. 

Haney s threats prompted a meeting among himself. 
University President Dale Lick and other administrators 
on Dec. 22, 1992. There, Lick agreed to a meeting with 
Haney at a later date and appointed Director of Human 
Resources Freddie Groomes to be the liaison between 
Haney and the University. 

"I respect and understand his interest," Groomes said, 
"but this is a very sensitive issue on both sides and we need 
to make sure we do the right thing." 

Following the meeting Haney was not satisfied with the 
amount of progress the University made to fulfill his de- 

"Basically, they have done very little, if anything... Fd 

like to see a plan of action, some timetable. But maybe we'll 
have to move them through threats and civil disobedience," 
Haney said. 

Lick defended the University and said that Haney s 
complaints were being recognized and dealt w^ith accord- 
ingly. University ofhcials have met with members of the 
Seminole Tribe of Florida. In fact, James Billie, chairper- 
son of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, was honored by the 
-way the University portrayed the Seminole Mascot. An- 
other true Seminole, Shayne Osceola, had a great deal of 
pride in the University's Seminoles. 

"(The mascot) is a portrayal of a Seminole Indian who 
is noble, strong and full of integrity, "Osceola said. 

However, Haney felt that the University used the Semi- 
noles of Florida to justify their racism. In addition, he 
stressed that they (Florida Seminoles) did not speak for all 
Seminoles or Native Americans. In fact, Haney believed 
that Florida Seminoles were in the minority when it came to 
the issue at hand. 

"Every Indian I know is mad at the University because 
everything they do affects us, " Haney said. 

If Haney took the University to court, thousands of fans 
might be affected as well. 

In the early days, fans extended their hands and bent 
their arms at the elbows. This motion, labeled the "Seminole 
Chop" urged the football team to score a touchdown. It was 
largely done while the team was on offense as a symbol of 
toughness, unity and a reluctance to give up. 

However, some people believe that old mascots - like old 
habits - die hard. Even if Haney took the University to 
court, most people, like economics major Efrem Carter, 
were not certain that fans would stop urging the Seminole 
to victory with traditional methods. "I think the majority of 
students are not in favor of phasing out the mascot. And 
police would probably have to arrest the entire stadium to 
keep them from chanting, " Carter said.

In an effort to ease tensions over the education cuts that 
swept the nation in 1991, the U.S. Congress put through 
legislation which revised the federal financial aid system. 

"Congress looked at college costs, the economy and the 
job market and saw that students needed more assistance," 
Michael Wielgus, marketing officer for the Barnett Higher 
Exlucation Loan Program, said. 

The revisions, which went into effect in July for the 
1993-94 year, authorized renovations of aid programs, 
more flexible eligibility guidelines, a more simplistic aid 
application and an increase in overall funding. 

Revisions to the aid application included a reduction 
from 125 to 50 questions which served several functions. 
Topics which were addressed included total income, 
financial assets and income tax paid. Dependent students 
were required to provide information pertaining to their 
parents' income, also. 

After the application process was completed, students 
could receive grants or other forms of reward money. Some 
students received money through a work study program 
offered by the University. Students who qualified are given 
jobs in different offices on campus doing a variety of things 
from paperwork to working the desk in a dormitory on 
campus. This not only provided students with the needed 
aid, but also helped them to leel they have earned the 

Obviously, the dreaded task of applying for financial aid 
has been changed. But, more importantly, questions about 
parent's home equity have been eliminated. 

According to the U.S. News & World Report 1993 
College Guide, this made about 2.5 million more students 
eligible for aid nationally. 

"In previous years that (home equity questions) 
knocked out a lot of students or they didn't get as much as 
they could have," Joanne Clark, a coordinator in the 

University's financial aid office said. 

The University received $20 million for its financial aid 
budget, an increase of $2 million from the previous year. 
Stafford loans were increased in value from $2,625 to 
$3,500 for freshmen and sophomores and from $4,000 to 
$5,500 for juniors, seniors and graduate students. 

The department also added to its program the onsite 
unsubsidized loan application. The loan program offered a 
loan in the amount of choice which the student was 
automatically approved for. 

Federal grants were also increased. The Federal Pell 
Grant was due to be funded up to $3,700; however, due to 
a limited budget, the grant was allocated $2,300. 

"Considering all the cuts and tuition increases we've had 
in the past, this is the best news yet," junior communication 
major Mike Sartore said. 

The new revisions also helped to combat a rise in the aid 
applicants needed due to the national recession. Because of 
the shape of the economy, many people returned to school 
for further education. 

With this return to furthering one's education came an 
increase in the number of applicants requesting aid. 
Because this increase coincided with the added funding, 
money was alloted on a "first come, first serve basis." The 
University financial aid office strongly urged all applicants 
to apply early because of the added funding and probability 
of receiving aid. 

"I usually fill out my forms before I leave for Spring 
Break. What's two hours of paperwork on a plane 
compared to a whole year with nothing but lint in your 
pockets?" junior hospitality administration major Geoff 
Tucker said. 

Financial aid was in the past nothing, but a hassle for 
many students, but with these economic improvements aid 
became not only a real possibility for many, but an added 
sourcce of hope.

After weeks of deliberation during a University 
hearing, Dr. David Ammerman, a tenured history 
professor with 29 years of teaching spent in Tallahassee, 
was silent about the administrative decision on the status of 
his employment in light of drug and student program 

Ammerman was arrested May 20 on charges of 
cocaine possession and purchase after a four-month 
investigation conducted by the Tallahassee Police 
Department and University police. It was later alledged 
that sexual misconduct occurred within a minority 
mentoring program founded by Ammerman. 

TPD Chief Mel Tucker said he had been aware of 
rumors about Ammerman's drug use in the early eighties 
but he was not compelled to investigate Ammerman until 
allegations of child abuse in the program were brought 
against him. 

The Summer Enrichment Program, designed by 
Ammerman to recruit more minorities to campus, was just 
one of many efforts made by Ammerman to improve race 
relations on campus. 

Aside from the $70,000 excess above its budget, 
the program was criticized for the allegations of abuse of 
the children in the program as well as drug and sexual 
abuse by the counselors. One report claimed that a student 
was sexually involved with one of the counselors and 
became pregnant. 

Ammerman denied that he had ever degraded or 
humiliated African-Americans in the programs but 
admitted to spanking several high school students in the 
program after the counselors left because they were "out of 

Ammerman was fired from the program because 
the overexpenditure of the program's budget but other 

overtones of misconduct began to surface. 

In September, Ammerman asked the court to drop 
charges of drug possession based on the breach of 
confidentiality of the police report under Florida law. 
Ammerman also accused TPD of editing interview's to 
ensure unfavorable press coverage as part of a conspiracy 
with the University to destroy his career. 

"The concerted press campaign assisted by TPD 
has destroyed any possibility of the defendant receiving a 
fair trial," Ammerman's attorney Robert Cox said. "No 
)uror could possibly decide this case fairly. " 

The police denied that any conspiracy existed and 
also dismissed the argument of record confidentiality. 
Since the investigation had ended, the case was no longer 
active and Ammerman's record was subject to public 

Ammerman later admitted that he had a drug 
problem and pleaded " no contest " to a possession of cocaine 

"As I told you, I am addicted to cocaine. I 
understand that things that happen to me are things I 
deserve, things I've caused. I very much regret that I also 
made other people suffer," Ammerman said. 

Cox fought the shadier set of allegations, which 
included tales of sexual domination games with black men 
and misconduct in the very mentoring program 
Ammerman founded to give support to African- 
Americans, by emphasizing Ammerman's drug addiction 
as the reason for his behavior. 

Assistant State Attorney Jack Poitinger refuted 
this contention because of the negative message 
Ammerman's dismissal from the charges would have sent in 
terms of racial disruption.

" It \vould create a model that said ityou happen to 
be important and happen to be \vhite, you can beat the 
charge," Poitinger said. 

Leon County Judge William Gary withheld 
adjucation (charges of guilt) in a ruling on Jan. 26. Gary 
sentenced Ammerman to seven years probation with the 
condition of random drug testing. He also hned him $250 
in court costs and ordered him to continue drug treatment. 

The University began a hearing Feb. 17 to 
determine Ammerman s faculty status. Ammerman was on 
paid leave at the College of William and Mary during the 
investigations and after his trial, the University 
administration w^as forced to make a decision about 
^vhether or not he could return to his former position as a 
tenured professor. 

Ammerman argued that he should not be fired 
because of his status as a tenured professor but Dr. Ed 
Love, a tenured arts professor against Ammerman's return, 
denied the validity of his argument. 

"Tenure \vasn't designed to protect lifestyle, " 
Love said. "It was designed to protect academic 
freedom. ..the University must set the moral standards for 

In a forum hosted by the Black Student Union, 
students unanimously called for Ammerman's dismissal, 
not because of the charges he faced, but because of the 
abuse of the trust that many children placed in him as the 
leader of several minority empowerment organizations. 

"He broke the trust of so many people. He led so 
many people to believe he was helping out young black 
males and the fact is he was adding to the problem," BSU 
president Ahli Moore said. 

Over 7,000 minority children passed through 
Ammerman's programs, many of \vhom talked about 
certain Ammerman incidents, but only one filed a formal 

Ammerman chose to have his case reviewed by a 
board of three faculty members from the faculty grievance 
committee, which would advise Provost Robert Glidden 

whether the retention or expulsion of Ammerman as a 
professor. Glidden, however, was not required to take 
their advice. 

Ammerman requested that the peer hearings stay 
closed. Former student and attorney for the University 
trials, William Williams, claimed Ammerman wanted to 
prove to the kids in the program that he -was not the "ogre " 
the police reports made him out to be. 

"To resign in the face of all of that would be to 
have a black cloud over his head," Williams said. "That is 
something he is unwilling to live with." 

Even before the University hearings started, 
rumors were rampant that Ammerman's pension and 
faculty position were at stake since the University had 
already hired $100,000 in legal help to fire Ammerman. 

As far back as August, University President Dale 
Lick said the allegations against Ammerman were 
"behaviors that would be outrageous and intolerable at any 
university. " 

Dr. Freddie Groomes, Executive Assistant of 
Human Resources, initiated the 1990 investigation that 
took Ammerman off of the Summer Enrichment Program. 
She said that she felt Ammerman ■was corrupt and abused 
the system. 

Ammerman had a lot of support, however, from 
former students and colleagues who regarded him a 
selfless, dedicated and generous man who w^orked to get 
minority students to college and supported them once they 
^vere there. 

"WTienyou talk about the youth throughout this 
state who need help and assistance, I can't think of 
anybody who's made a difference at the level he has," Eric 
Riley, a former student who later became a lobbyist with 
the Florida Education Association, said. 

"I think as a department we don't know anything 
more than what we read. I do know that Professor 
Ammerman has made enormous contributions to the 
University in the past," associate history chairperson 
Valerie Conner said.

Two students, one undergraduate and one law 
student, hopped on the pohtical bandwagon in the spring to 
campaign for Seat A in the City Commission elections. 

Student body President Jeanne Belin and law 
student, entrepreneur Scott Aladdox campaigned against 
six other candidates in the primaries. However, Belin lost 
early when the results ol the hrst primaries were tallied. 

Maddox went on to defeat attorney Craig Dennis 
by a ten percent point margin in the Feb. 23 elections. 

Although 24-year-old Belin was the youngest 
candidate running lor the City Commission seat, she had 
previously earned experience in campus politics. Belin 
hoped to gain support from the University community by 
giving students a voice in local politics. 

While her appeal to students' needs on issues such 
as transportation, jobs and affordable housing may have hit 
home with some students, Belin did not narro\v her 
campaign to students. Instead, she attempted to address 
the needs ol the community. 

"I have put together a platform that concerns all 
the citizens of Tallahassee," Belin said. "Mine is a 
candidacy to unify the whole community." 

The Miami native promised to work on relations 
between the University and the local government, to create 
acitizens'advisorygroup to deal with public input on issues 
and to keep utility rates "under control." She did not take 
a side on the community's debate of whether to expand 
Capital Parkway at $300 million but she supported a 
streamlined process for permits and development which 
may have cut through some bureaucratic red tape in 
community growth. 

College Democrats President Erik Milman 
resigned as Belin's campaign manager by the end of 
January based on "a difference in philosophy " with the 
candidate. Belin believed Milman was too focused on the 
University community's vote and she wanted a manager 
who was more informed about the community and local 

Stuart Reese, a local businessman who managed 
an unsuccessful campaign for property appraiser in the 
past, w^as the man Belin chose to help her move her 
campaign deeper into the Tallahassee community. 

Belin waived the $250 qualifying fee by collecting 
500 petition signatures, but she was unsuccessful in 
winning seat 4. However, Belin endorsed Maddox who 
was still in the race against Craig Dennis. 

"I don't want to be part of the problem but rather 
part of the solution, " Belin said. 

In an election with a 27 percent turnout, Maddox 
beat his contender by 1770 votes and credited his success to 
the "grassroots " effort. 

Maddox said he was inspired to run for political 
office during his days as a page in the Florida Legislature. 
Born and raised in Tallahassee, Maddox grew up in the 
political family of Charles Maddox, his father. 

Maddox received a Bachelor of Science degree in 
Political Science and Public administration in December of 
1989, and began law school in 1991. He took a few years 
off from his studies to start his own marketing firm. 
Spectrum Resources, and he has served on several advisor\' 
boards for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and Big 
Bend Deaf Service Center. 

Maddox was named the most outstanding Jaycee 
President in Florida and the nation during his term as 
President of the Capital City Jaycees. 

His "Committment to Tallahassee " campaign for 
city commissioner gave him more clout than his previous 
unsuccessful bid for state representative in 1990. In the 
previous election, Maddox raised over $100,000 but his 
failed campaign yielded only 34 percent of the votes needed 
to beat incumbent Representative Hurley Rudd. 

After losing to Rudd, Maddox became a member 
of the Alternative Transportation Committee and the Leon 
County Transportation Mediation Commission which he 
said has given him more insight on an issue he has been 
interested in for some time. 

"Unless we change people's attitudes.. .we're going 
to keep frilling the roads like we fill prisons," Maddox said 
in view of the city's transportation problems. 

Maddox also committed himself to improving the 
environment and conducting a "walking poll" as a 
commissioner who cared about the issues that people in the 
community were concerned about. 

" I m going to vote my conscience and what I think 
is best for the people of Tallahassee," Maddox said.

WhaT r 


The economy was in a recession and the job market was 
down. However, students were graduating from college at 
an all-time high. With fewer jobs available, what was a 
college graduate to do? And more importantly, what was 
a college degree worth today? 

"I decided to go to graduate school, because I didn't see 
a bachelor degree as cutting it anymore. Today you need to 
have an extra edge, a competitive edge. Without a graduate 
degree I don't think you do, " Charles Marelli, a first year 
graduate student, said. 

Many students felt the same way so instead of going 
straight to work right out of school they decided to further 
their education. Why? Because most of the jobs available 
were not suited for college graduates with degrees - they 
were usually low paying jobs without benefits or any of the 
other economic securities college graduates sought. 

"I don't want just any job, " Amber Rummel, a senior 
finance/marketing major, said. "It seems like the average 
person in the job market has a college degree. I don't want 
to be ordinary. Jobs are harder to get today and I want to 
be as competitive as I can. " 

This influx of applicants for limited graduate school 
spots brought intense competition in certain areas of study 
and the skills required. 

"In the psychology program here , there are about 400 
applicants for only 10 spots every year. It's considerably 
competitive, " Marie Hume, a clinical psychology graduate 
student, said. 

Along with courses and grades as criteria lor 
acceptance, graduate schools looked at an applicant's 
experience in the field, such as internships and 
volunteering. The University's departments put forth 
considerable efforts to make these opportunities available 
to the students. One such method has been the Directed 
Individual Study, where a student worked under a 
professor on practical studies and projects.. 

"My DIS gives me excellent research experience for a 

career in psychology. Right now I m involved with research 
on psychopath assessment, " Katie Gardner, a junior 
psychology major, said. 

While many felt this way, others always saw themselves 
aspiring to higher levels. 

"I've always wanted to be a lawyer, so law school has 
always been something I've been preparing myself for," 
senior marketing major, Michele Clark said. "It's the type 
of career I want and this marketplace requires a competitive 
degree. I've been living and breathing the LSAT since the 
semester began, just so I can get into a good school. " 

To further a college education, entrance exams were 
required. The exam that was taken depends on the type of 
graduate degree one seeks to obtain. The Graduate Record 
Examination was taken lor general graduate programs. 
The Graduate Management Admissions Test was taken for 
future business education. The Law School Admissions 
Test -was for those who desired to attend law school and the 
Medical College Admission Test was taken by those who 
wanted to go to medical school. 

Some of the most common graduate exams taken 
included each of these exams were challenging and 
students went about various ways of preparing for them. 

"I took the Kaplan preparatory course to get ready for 
the LSAT," Clark said. 

"I used the Baron's study guide to prepare for the 
GMAT," Rummel said. 

Although there were many different ways to prepare 
for the tests, the end result was what mattered. 

"I just want to secure my future. Whether it's law 
school or getting a MBA, I just \vant to work in a 
challenging environment that I will enjoy, " Clark said. 

Regardless of where one eventually wanted to be in 
the job market, furthering one's education all came do^vn to 
economics and happiness. 

So, what was a college degree worth today? It was a 
possible ticket to future education. 


Graduate School 5 1 



There used to be a day when the question on every 
senior's mind was "Will I get a job when I graduate? " But 
with the economy in an employment slump and the increas- 
ing demand for professionals and the "best of the best " in 
the work environment, some students chose to enroll in 
graduate school instead of pursuing a job immediately after 

Senior year was both exciting and scary for graduating 
seniors. They did everything from cramming in every 
campus event that they failed to make time lor over the past 
threeyears into their busy social calendars to having spent 
fitful nights preparing the goodbye speeches lor the zany 
friends who lived next to them in the dorm. 

But at the same time, seniors began to make choices that 
would affect them for the rest of their lives. Some mailed 
out dozens of resumes or latched on to any internship 
remotely related to their major so that they could enter the 
work force after four years of making the grades. Others 
played the grad school game. 

The grad school game seemed easy enough to play. II 
they filled out a few applications and took a standardized 
test, automatically the job ol their dreams would take care 
ol them lor the rest ol their lives because they earned a 
higher degree. 

But for some, the decision was not so clearly defined. 

"The application process can be quite grueling," doc- 
toral candidate John Carney said. 

Carney, like many other graduate students worked for 
a few years betore deciding to get his Master's degree in 
Mass Communication. He then went on to pursue a 
doctorate for more career opportunities. 

Some students went to graduate school because their 

profession of interest required additional schooling. Ca- 
reers in psychology, law and medicine required higher 
degrees and many executive and publishing careers sug- 
gested that graduate school meant promotion and advance- 
ment opportunity lor employees. 

Some students decided that graduate school was the 
right choice for them because they were 100 percent posi- 
tive that they wanted to learn more about their field before 
jumping into it. Those who were not completely convinced 
tried their luck at entry-level job positions. 

Some students went to graduate school convinced that 
they were meant to be lawyers or doctors, then alter a lew 
years cooped up in clinical labs or in debt Irom the law 
school bill realized too late that they had made the wrong 
decision. Graduate school was nearly two-thirds more 
expensive per credit hour than undergraduate tuition and 
many learned that higher degrees were not always guaran- 
tees lor securing dream jobs. 

Others were ambitious enough to tackle the odds and 
approached graduate school with a serious attitude. 

"I'm going to graduate school because I want to be a 
school psychologist and I need a higher degree, " senior 
Karin Nolte said. Despite individual differences in post- 
graduate decisions, students made choices that they would 
have to live with. With or w^ithout a few more years in the 
books, they may have come to the realization that many 
seniors have. ..the decision was never meant to be an easy 

"I leel that a graduate degree today is becoming the 
bachelor degree of the past, where it was unique to have 
bachelors then, it is unique to have your masters or doctor- 
ate now, " Carney said.

'c same daily routines that had filled other years 

filled this one. Days made up of 8 a.m. classes and all night 
study sessions for that forgotten test were a part or the life of 
a student. However, thisyear brought with it new things: the 
first class of the undergraduate film students was graduated, 
a cure for cancer was found, and research was completed in 
South Africa. 

Aside from the activities and sports offered, another 
reason that brought people here w^as academics. Whether it 
\vas the freshman struggling to adjust or the sophomores 
slash juniors w^ho couldn't seem to meet the GPA 
requirement to get into their respective schools, there was 
someone who said that "this was the year, their grades were 
going to get better." There w^as also the balance of being on 
the Dean's List every semester while managing to still have 
a "life" that didn't result in moving into Strozier Library. 

Regardless of the category a person fell under, 
everyone started the year with high expectations of what 
they would be able to achieve after a summer of 
recuperation. There was no telling what the year would 
bring but most just prayed for the best. The overall hope was 
for improvement for those that needed it and the sustenance 
for those that didn't. At least there was jomething to strive for.

Giving up a day's pay in order to help 
students in need was just what Partners for 
Pubhc Service had been encouraging students 
to do for the past six years. The annual pledge 
drive, "Work a Day in Public Service, " kicked 
off Feb. 26 and lasted through mid-March. 

The day was established in order to 
find law students who were willing to give up a 
day's pay to help future law students afford the 
rising costs of college. One hundred percent of 
the money went straight to the students w^ho 
applied for such help. The application process 
included filling out an application and 
developing a proposed outline of apublic service 
project. The applications were then judged by

According to Nancy McMillan, a law student 
"With the program, a previousyear's fund raiser 
raised about $12,000. This money helped ten 
students each received $1200. 

"I probably wouldn't have been able 
to attend law school without the scholarship, " 
23 year old Caria Cody, a second year law^ 
student who received money from the project 

The students who received money 
literally had to work for it. They were placed in 
jobs with local businesses and public service 
groups who agreed to employ them during the 
summer months. 

"The scholarship helped me get a taste 
of what public interest law is all about, " 23year 
old Celia Gowen, also a secondyear law student, 

Students were not the only people 
asked to help out their fellow students, local 

lawyers donated money as well. 

"We either go through the phone book 
or we find them through \vord of mouth, " 
McMillan said. 

The Feb. 26 pledge drive was held at 
the Lake Ella American Legion Hall. The band 
Work for Hire was the entertainment for the 
evening as was Elle Methvin who opened for 
the group playing acoustic guitar. There was a 
$5 cover charge for the party. The purpose of 
the event was the chance to explain the project 
to perspective donors. 

In a previous year, cartoonist Johnny 
Hart, of B.C. comics fame, designed a t-shirt 
which was given out to those who participated. 

For the most 
recent event, 
the t-shirt 

design was that 
of a student 
portraying a 
likeness of 
Clinton and his 
wife Hillary. 
Printed around 
the couple were 
quotes from the 
President's inaugural speech. 

This past fund raiser went very well, 
according to Lorene Nagal with the Partners 
for Public Service group. The students set up 
tables throughout the law school in order to 
catch passer-bys and inform them of the goal 
they set. The most successful fund raiser was 
their kick off party last February. 

The event raised $6,000 dollars, which 
meant that they were able to pay stipends for 
four students. Over 200 law^ students and 
members of the Tallahassee community 
attended the party. The dean of the law school 
matched the amount raised by 50 percent and 
gave $3,000 to the cause. That money is to be 
held over; however, for the next fund raiser so 
the group ^vill be ahead instead of starting from 
scratch. Not only did the dean match what was 
pledged, local law firms matched w^hat the 
students pledged.

Most students knew someone stricken with cancer. 
Since cancer was one of the leading causes of death in the 
United States, there has been an ongoing search tor an 
affordable cure w^ithout dangerous side effects. 

Perhaps the scariest thing about cancer was that 
anyone could develop it and there were a variety oi causes. 
Even those who led the healthiest lifestyles could become 
victims of this possibly iatal disease. Many tavorite leisure 
time activities were dangerous to one's health, including 
smoking, sun tanning and poor dieting. Even having 
clothes dry cleaned could 
promote the chances of 
getting cancer. Fiber, beta 
carotene and general 
"healthy " foods were dietary 
recommendations for 
reducing the chances of 
getting cancer.

the battle against cancer 

while to providing an excellent example of how basic 
research benefited the University. 

Larry Ablele, dean of the College of Arts and 
Sciences said, "Many professors and graduate students 
over the years have contributed to a body of knowledge in 
which the payoff is not obvious when the \vork is being 
done, but which leads to important breakthroughs. Each 
step of the process builds on the next step." 

His 20years of research began with the search for 
a method to produce large quantities of an anti cancer drug, 
taxol, in an efficient, affordable way. In 1971 taxol was 
discovered in the bark of Pacific yew trees. Until recently, 
approximately 12,000 Pacificyew trees had to be sacrificed 
in order to obtain enough taxol to treat just one patient. 
Holton developed a process that allowed the needles, instead 

Some people believe taxol may turn out to be the 
first effective broad spectrum anti-cancer drug. 

-Dr. Robert Holton, 
chemistry professor 

ol the bark of the yew tree to be used. This preserved 
approximately 12,000 trees while producing 2.5 pounds of 
the drug per tree. 

On the 11th the Food and Drug Administration 
permitted Bristol-Myers Squibb, a major pharmaceutical 
company, to market taxol for use against ovarian cancer in 
cases which alternative treatments were ineffective. Its 
high effectiveness in controlling certain types of cancerous 
tumors was unheard of in previous anti-cancer drugs. 

"Some people believe taxol may turn out to be the 
first effective broad spectrum 
anti-cancer drug", said 

Taxol has also been 
successful with breast cancer 
and testing has begun with 
head, neck and lung cancer. 

Once it was on the 
market, the drug could be 
prescribed for any type of 
cancer. Eventually, the 
company, who already shelled 
out hundreds of millions of dollars for research, -was expected 
to use Holton s process for all of their taxol production. 
This -would bring a large share of the sales to Holton and to 
the University. 

"In this case, the University would benefit 
financially even if Holton 's process were not used to provide 
taxol. His research alone provided Bristol-Myers Squibb 
with the incentive to support 1 .7 million in additional taxol 
research at FSU over fiveyears". Associate Vice President 
for Research, Mike Devine said. 

The research contributed a rare learning 
opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students. In 
addition, the University stood to earn 4.25 percent royalty 
for all sales of taxol earned from Holton s patents. 
Approximately 60 percent went to the university.

ust the start 

The School ot Motion Pictures, Television and 
Recording Arts accepted its first freshman class of 
undergraduates in 1989. Since then, the school has grown 
substantially "with an increase of faculty, students, classes, 
equipment and funds. 

Often referred to as the "guinea pigs" of the 
undergraduate program, the original 20 students, the 
graduating class of 1993, were joined by some 80 others to 
complete what was then the maximum capacity of 100-120 

There have been 
numerous changes in the 

program since 1989. While i 

some classes have been 
dropped, others have been 
added or changed, and the 
order in w^hich they were 
taken was switched as w^ell. 

"The seniors have 
taken classes we 11 nevertake 
while we've taken classes 
they haven't had yet, " 
sophomore Trey Turner said. 

"It's funny, the seniors have already shot and edited their 
BFA thesis films but haven't yet taken a course in sound. " 

Changes were made in the program to help better 
prepare the undergraduates for the industry. There will be 
more changes changes made in the next few years because 
of the newness of the Film School. It was still shifting and 
evolving into a film school for Florida. 

"The Film School is teaching me all the basics. I 
feel that I need to learn the camera and lighting, improve my 
writing skills and eventually direct, " sophomore John Martin 
said. "But I need a strong foundation in the basics before I 
go and try to compete for a job. " 

Many students chose the film school over the 
older, more prestigious New York University and University 

The seniors have taken classes we'll never take 

while we've taken classes they haven't yet. 


-Trey Turner, 

of Southern California Film programs because of the 
University's program design. The University was the only 
Film School that paid for the students' film and film 
processing. These costs were very expensive and deterred 
many financially unable students from entering this field. 
"This process had its ups and downs. The positive 
of the school providing the costs is there are many students 
here who would never enter the industry any other way, " 
Steve Swartz, professor and filmmaker in residence, said. 
"However, the down side is that the students do not learn 

how to raise money for their 
films and it could paint an 
unrealistic picture of how the 
real film industry truly is. " 

A thesis film, necessary 

for graduation, could cost 

anywhere between $10,000- 

40,000. At the University, 

$10,000 was budgeted for 

each thesis film. However, 

unlike other film schools, the 

University owned the 

students' films after 

completion and had complete control over the future of the 

film. At NYU and USC, the students films w^ere their own 

and could be used as calling cards into the industry. 

The thesis films produced at the University, 
however, ^vere not any one students' work. Rather, they 
were conglomeration of many students ' efforts. Five seniors 
were assigned to five positions on each film: producer, 
director, cinematographer, sound, and editor. The other 
positions were filled by juniors, sophomores and freshman. 
These films were entered into film festivals like their 
counterparts but the Film School decided which films 
entered which festivals. This made these films more calling 
cards for the University than for the students themselves.

brought prestige as well as pressure to these 20 
graduates. It was the first year that BFA films 
were completed in the undergraduate program. 

"The BFA films were really hard, I'm 
glad they're finally done," David Shahoulian, 
cinematographer of "Regular Glazed," said. " I 
am very proud to have been a part of the 
growing Film School with more classes, more 
faculty and the development of a new building.' 

Still not fully operational, the 
undergraduate Film School has shared space 
with the School of Communication in the 

Diffenbaugh building for three years, since the 
inception of the undergraduate program. 
However, a $29 million film production lacility 
devoted exclusively to the undergraduates has 
been slated to be finished by Winter 1993. It 
would serve as part of the University Center 
complex flanking the Doak Cambell Stadium. 
When completed, it was expected to be one of 
the largest and finest in the world. 

The undergraduates' facilities were 
scheduled to have three stages. It will fill three 
floors in two buildings to capacity. 

"Everyone is extremely excited about 
the new facilities. It will be exciting to have a 
building we can call our ow^n," Turner said.

what did Chuck Yeager, Barbara Wahers and 
Walter Cronkite have in common? Since its begining in 
1984, The Distinguished Lecture Series has hosted a large 
variety of important speakers. 

Until the most recent series, only three experts 
spoke, however funding allowed the program to expand to 
five speakers and was sponsored by the Student Government 
Association, administration, patrons as well as corporate 
sponsors. The program was run out of the Center of 
Professional Development and Public Services. 

"We w^ere fortuante thisyear that we had a ( school ) 
president that supported the series so strongly," series 
coordinator, Carole 

Lockeridge said. "In fact he 
mandated our expansion." 

The lecture were 
held at the Tallahassee/Leon 
County Civic Center 
throughout both semesters. 

"Students, faculty, 
and staff attend the lectures 
tor free with the Access card, " 
publicity coordinator, 
Danielle McBeth said. 
General admission tickets 
were sold at the the door for $9 and $14 to reserve seating. 

The first speaker of the year was Dr. Jonathan 
Miller, physician, author and director. He was the host of 
British Broadcasting System's television show "The Body 
in Question." He also wrote the best selling novel The 
Human Bock/ and directed such operas as Rujoletto. Because 
he loved both science and the arts, he decided to spend the 
rest of his career "oscilating between science and theatre." 

October brought Mark and Delia Owens, 
preservationists of Africa's endangered wildlife. They 
published the international best seller Cry of the Kalahari . 
They had also just published Siirvu'or[i Story . The Owens 
supported reeducation of the natives on the value of their 
wildlife. They also taught them to utilize the thought of 

tourist attractions to reduce poaching. 

Nobel Peace Prize winner Dr. Oscar Anas who 
spoke in December was also awarded an honorary degree 
before the lecture. The one time president of Costa Rica 
spoke of the value of peace in Central America. He 
originally came to America to study medicine and later 
received his medical degree. 

"I value nothing more than friendship- between 
people , friendship between nations. Friendship implies 
loyalty, but loyalty is not synonymous with servitude or 
unconditionality, " Arias said. 

Tune magazine once called William Raspberry the 

"Lxjne Rangerof columnists. " 

He has never been afraid to 

(( address a controversial topic 

giving him his name. 
Raspberry was a columnist 
for the Wajhuicjton Pivt and 
spoke in February. He has 
been a journalist for over 
thirty years and says he often 
found his stories close to 

"I think about things 
that affect me in my daily life 
as a father, husband, male, black man, urban resident, 
American...! try to talk about these things from the point of 
view of sharing problems- not coming down from the 
mountain to bestow wisdom," Raspberry said. 

Raspberry had recently published //<v'/:/W^<;t'/:uM/'(^^

Author Joyce Carol Oates spoke in March. She 
had published many novels, many short story collections, 
many volumes of poetry, several plays and five books of 
literary criticism and a book-length essay. She had a large

Book Award and the O. Henry Prize.

Students tutor 


One might wonder how an athlete had 
time to devote hours to studying. However, it 
had to be done. The administration, coaches, 
staff and NCAA enforced this if thestudent did 
not have the self disipUne themself. 

Each athelete put in many hours of 
hard work and dedication through practice 
time, personal training, travel (to and Irom 
games) and games. The sport was demanding. 

With NCAA regulations and tight 
competition, athletes could no longer alford to 
be second best in any aspects ol their college 
careers. On the same note, the universities 
were starting to care not only about producing 
world class champions but also about 
world class 
human beings. 
Much of the 
public did not 
see the personal 
side of the 
athlete, they 
were only 
exposed to the 
glitter of 

achievement. However, when the spotlight 
came down, that was where it stopped. 

Not for the athlete. 

Along with their personal problems 
and injuries, athletes was also expected to do 
well in academics. With a hectic practice 
schedule and a lull-course load, they had little 
time lor a a social life. Any free time had to be 
put into study and rest. A great deal more was 
expected from them, not only by the coaches 
and the public, but also by professors and 
academic advisors. When compared with the 
average student, the athlete's time spent in a 
structured environment was almost doubled. 

The academic support for service 
intercollegiate athletics required study hall 
hours lor all athletes and provided tutorial help 
in any subject. The study room was located in

day of the week with the exception of Saturday. 

The tutors really know their stuff. The one on one 

with the tutor really helps me feel more like a 

person than a number. 

-Larry Fleming, 
football player 

During the time of recruiting, the Academic 
Enhancement Plan was presented to the 
student athlete and the parents. 

It stated that "all freshman and 
transfer students will be required to attend 
study sessions five days per week, a ten hour 
commitment, for the fall semester. " All athletes 
with a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or below, or have 
fallen below a 2.0 for the last semester had this 
same requirement. Any other requirements 
were determined by the athlete's academic 
advisor, based upon his or her progress and 
career goals. All decisions were reviewed with 
the respective coaches. 

"The tutors really know their stuff. 
The one on one 
w^ith the tutor 
really helps me 
learn the 
material and 
helps me feel 
more like a 
person than a 
number. With 
100 - 300 people 
in a class you feel 
o ve rwhel m ed 
and are not able to ask questions when you do 
not understand. Ho\vever, with a tutor it is 
more personal, and I learn more, " football 
player Larry Fleming said. 

There were usually tw^o or three 
students being tutored at the same time and the 
students w^ere responsible for meeting the 
entire semester. 

"I think the tutors help the students 
prepare for A) classroom w^ork and B) testing, " 
academic support director Nick Menacoff 

The athletes' response to this program 
was outstanding. Suddenly athletes were 
motivated not only on the playing field, but in 
the classroom as well. This type of support 
group changed the attitudes of both the 
athletes and the public. Goals and priorities 
had been rearranged to make earning a degree 
first and winning the game second.

America became more health conscious in the late 
1980 s and early 1990's. People lost confidence in liquid 
diets and other "get thin quick schemes. " College students 
who frequently tried "miracle diets" to lose 1 pounds before 
spring break now sought a healthier way to control their 
weight. Thagard Health Center offered the Peer Nutrition 

"The thinking is that students will relate to students 
and open up the discussion a little better," Cleveland said. 
"It helps students to know^ that if other students are teaching 
this then maybe it's important. They become role models to 
their peers."

students, or peer educators, to disseminate the information to them, 
to other students. Peer educators were not required to be ~ 
nutrition majors, they simply needed to be enthusiastic 

about learning the material and teaching it to others. 

Peer educators were given training sessions to 
learn some facts but most of their information came from 
their own research. These volunteer students discovered a 
problem, interviewed someone in the nutritional department 
and gathered their own material to present to groups. 

Peer educators distributed pamphlets on specific subjects 
to students with individual needs. For example, African 
Americans had more problems with high blood pressure. 
The pamphlet on this topic advised high blood pressure 
victims to limit their intake of salt and alcohol. This and 
other pamphlets allowed peer educators to answer more 
individual questions.

activities were beneficial to the educators as 
well as the students. Peer advisers learned 
teaching techniques and became comfortable 
with speaking to a group. 

"Their enthusiasm is real high so that makes 
it rewarding for everyone," Cleveland said. 

Assisted by Dr. Cleveland, the peer 
educators developed a cookbook for college 
students. It contained easy to make and 
economically reasonable recipes lull of 
nutritional value. The cookbook was available 
to students -who attended the peer education 

groups or visited with Dr. Cleveland. 

" I like to cook but it can get expensive 
when you have to buy a lot of ingredients. The 
recipes in this cookbook were simple but tasted 
great. It also made me feel good to know I was 
eating something healthy," junior Tiffani 
Pittenger said. 

Universities around the country that 
employed the peer education approach, like 
this, were successful in helping students. The 
University used students to relate to others 
about sex education so Cleveland decided to 
apply this approach to nutrition and health. 

"It also gives students Iree and 
important information," Camela Coggins, 
media production major, said.

' Dr. Nancy Turner has been at the 

head of the Olglesby Union since 
September oF 1971 . She received her both 
her undergraduate degree and her 
doctorate here. 

In her twenty-second year at the 
University she was able to look back at the 
changes and was proud. This ability to 
reflect allowed her to plan a future for her 

place at the university that has seen growth 
and improvement. 

"My proudest moment had to have 
been the dedication of the Union expansion 
in 1988. There was eightyears of work that 
went into it from'the initial planning and 
hiring designers and the construction of the 
new building that took threeyears," Turner 

The future of the union only held 
more of the same: changes and growth. 

"There is going to be another 
expansion beginning in the fall of 1993. 
Three million dollars was received from the 
Capital Improvement Trust Fund. It 
should becorhpleted by 1995," Turner said. 

The expansion will include new 
food facilities and will cater more to the 

"The fact that the new car garage 
will be across the street will be an 
advantage. That parking will bring more 
people into fhe union and we want 
something for those people," Turner said. 

In all the expansion and change 
there are some things that Turner does not 
want altered or modified. 

"We've seen the union grow over 
the years with the University. There is a 
sense of warmth that I don't want lost in all

Deiin Theodore Clevenger resigned. He 
wiis chagnosed as HIV-positive in 1990. At 
the beginning ol the year he lelt that his 
condition was getting in his way. He was 
sill lering only premature exhaustion and no 
other symptoms. He contracted the virus in 
1984 when he received several units ol 
blood during lor prostate surgery. 

"Ted Clevenger has been an 
outstanding dean who has given excellent, 
dedicated and caring leadership to to the 
College o I Co m m u n i c a t i o n lor 17 
years, "Pro\'OSt Rc:)berl Glidden said. 

William Haas, the assistant dean ol 
student al lairs lor the college, took over 
Jan. 15 as the acting dean until a suitable 
replacement could be lound. 

Because of the sensitivity ol the 
situation Clevenger's attorneys advisee^ him 
to keep a lt:)w profile. 

Clevenger continued working. He 
continued working on several acac^emlc 
papers emd a book; he also continued 
overseeing the research ol several graduate 
students. He didn't feel as though he was 
retiring, he felt as il he were "reassigning" 

"Not only has Dean Clevenger 
been a valuable member ol our laculty since

State in 1958, so we boast him as one ot our 
outstanding alumni. We appreciate Dean 
Clevenger's yeiirs ol service and honor his 
recjuest to give up the deanship, while 
looking forward to his continued scholarly

however, we want him to guard his health

l\LLl^OLLCJ iJ we were known as a football 
powerhouse, by no means were we a "one-sport school. " 
Nor did we settle for second best. In fact, tor the eighth year 
in a row, the football team won a major bowl game, the 
basketball team advanced to the "Elite 8" of the NCAA 
tournament, surpassing last year's Sweet 16 appearance. 
No other school in history has achieved this feat in these 
three sports for two consecutive years. The Lady Seminole 
Softball team also made it to the World Series for the fourth 
consecutive year. 

But there's more to Florida State athletics than the 
high profile sports and scholarship athletes. Club teams, 
supported by the student members, traveled to other schools 
and competed as well. For example, the women's rugby club 
established themselves as on of the nation's best. 
Intramurals gave all students the opportunity for recreation 
and competition in a variety of sports. So, whether you had 
a starting position on a Seminole team, or a member of an 
intramural squad, or were one of the tomahawk-choppin', 
die-hard fans v^ho packed Doak Campbell, Dick Howser, or 
the Civic Center, the Florida State University athletic 
tradition gave you jomethLug to budd on.

what a difference one 
year makes. In August 
1991, the Florida State 
Seminoles headed into the 
season as everyone's 
number one team. Go to 
August 1992. The Tribe 
started as high as #2 in 
some polls, as low as #9 in 
others. But it wasn't the 
polls causing the 
excitement for the team, it 
was their debut in the 
Atlantic Coast 
Conference, and the 
expectation that they 
would -win the ACC title. 

Was Coach Bobby 
Bowden grateful for 
having the #1 pressure off 
his shoulders? "We can 
certainly live without it. 
Being number one just 
makes things more 
difficult. I try not to worry 
about the polls before and 
during the season, because 
the Jan. 2 poll is the only 
one that matters, " Bowden 

The team faced a full 
ACC schedule, starting 
\vith Duke at home and 

traveling to Clemson's 
Death Valley the following 
Saturday. Spectators 
called the Florida State- 
Clemson matchup as the 
key ACC game of the 
season. However, Bowden 
w^asn't underestimating 
the other ACC teams. "We 
face N.C. State the week 
after Clemson and that will 
be a tough game. All of the 
teams in the league are 
improving. We could get 
beat if we don't stay 
focused. " In addition to 
the ACC schools, the Tribe 
also faced the traditional 
rivals Aliami and Florida, 
both of whom also started 
the season ranked in the 
top 10. 

Although they were just 
as talented, this team had a 
different look from the 
previous season. Junior 
two-sport standout 
Charlie Ward took over as 
starting quarterback. 
Linebacker Marvin Jones 
was a pre-season All- 
American candidate. Fans 
expected to see quite a bit 

of the past years freshmen 
stars. Derrick Brooks and 
Marquette Smith. Smith, 
however, decided to 
redshirt this season. 
According to Bowden, 
"Marquette wanted to 
attend graduate school and 
wants to have his 
scholarship available for 
that. " Bowden was also 
pleased with the new 
freshman class, which 
included quarterback 
Danny Kanell and wide 
receiver Tamarick 
Vanover, \vho were both 
expected to play this 

Another new aspect of 
Seminole football was the 
construction of the ne\v 
University Center. This 
would enclose the south 
endzone of Doak 
Campbell stadium and in- 
crease capacity to 70,000. 
Although the entire 
project would take about 
four years, one of the im- 
mediate benefits was a new 
hi-tech scoreboard, the 
biggest in the state.

Not only did Ken Alexander lead the 
defense on the field, he led the team with 
a 3.3 grade point average in the 
classroom. As a senior in academics, 
Alexander reached to be the best at 
whatever task he attempted. 
After taking the SAT exam, Alexander 
thought it 

was extremely biased lor 
the Afro-American 
minority, so he set out to 
devise a plan to help 
better prepare the young 
adults. He and his sister, 
Leslie, began a SAT 
preparation course for 
minority students in her 
church in the summer. 
The six week prep course 
was a strategic tactic to 
help students with the 
wording ol the questions 
in a language that the 
student could 
understand. The course 
was also planned to instill 
confidence within the

made me feel like I had accomplished the 
goal I had set out for," Alexander said. 

This SAT prep course earned 
Alexander the Toyota Leadership Award 
which was based on academic excellence 
and achievements. 

"A lot ol people ask you, ' Well, you are 
doing all this and you are doing all that, 
how can you not have a big head?" 
Alexander said. "Coming from a family of 
thirteen, with seven brothers and six 
sisters, you get credit for what you do. If 
you save the world, they say 'OK, good, 
you saved the world.' Then you're back to 
the same Ken Alexander beforeyou saved 
the world." 

Organizing his schedule around 
football, fun and finals, Alexander 
applied a fundamental concept taught by 
his mom. 

"If I have a paper to write and I have 
been invited to a party, I must write half ol 
the paper. Then I let myself go to the 
party, " Alexander said. "But I come 
home early so I can finish the rest ol the 
paper. " 

When Alexander thought of a hero, 
ideal or role model it was always the same 
person — his mom. 

"I have the most respect for my mom 
because she raised 13 kids by herself. She 
has had to go through a lot and she has 
always came out on top. " Alexander said. 
"When I am on the field and I see four

Kick-affd became touchdowns when true fresh- 
man Tamarick Vanover was on the return 

Not many freshman got the chance to 
make an impact during their first season 
of college football, especially at a football 
powerhouse such as Florida State. It 
freshman were not redshirted, they 
usually spent their first season behind the 
upperclassmen on the depth chart. Every 
once in a while, however, a freshman came 
along that wowed everyone. Lawrence 
Dawsey was one of those; Marvin Jones 
did it in 1990; and 1992 was the season for 
Tamarick Vanover. 

Florida State almost did not get the 
talented Tamarick. Both the Seminoles 
and Miami heavily recruited the Leon 
High standout. ITe did not decide until 
the morning of signing day, and even 
signed his letter of intent with Florida 
State wearing a Miami baseball cap. 

Tamarick's best memory of the season 
was his first start versus N.C. State. With 
five minutes left in the first half, Charlie 
Ward had not completed a pass. Then the 
Ward-Vanover connection hit. Vanover 
caught three passes in a row, including a 
60-yard bomb tor a touchdown, his first in 
college. "Charlie came into the huddle at 
the beginning of the series and said, 
'Fellas, it's time to go.' I said to myself, if 
we can complete one pass we 11 get rolling. 
Charlie began to look tor me and I was just 
catching the ball, " Vanover said. 

In the weeks following the N.C. State 
game, Vanover's exposure increased. 
Against Wake Forest and Miami, he 
returned his first two college kickotfs tor 
touchdowns, running 96yards against the 
Demon Deacons and 94 yards against the 
Hurricanes. The Florida Gators 
obviously did not take warning as they 
kicked off to him twice and watched him

run 80 and 76 yards. 

Vanover credits fellow receiver 
Shannon Baker and receivers coach John 
Eason as his greatest influences in 
football. "Coach Eason takes time with 
his players to get to know them. I had 
already known Shannon for a couple o 
years and when I came to 
school here, he showed me 
the ropes." 

When you are a receiver 
on a team that boasts other 
great receivers such as 
Baker, Kevin Knox, Kez 
McCorvey and Matt 
Frier, how do you handle 
competition among 
teammates? Vanover said, 
"I really don't think about 
the competition, it just 
makes me work harder. " 

The freshman was 
remembered when post- 
season honors were 
handed out. He was 
awarded the ACC Rookie 
of the Year and Football 
Ne»\i Freshman of the 
Year titles. He was named 
an All-American Kick 
Returner by two sources 
and was ACC Rookie of 
the Week five times. 

Vanover knew how hard it was to 
choose a college, so what would he tell 
recruits trying to make that same difficult 
decision? "I would tell them about the 
success we had with the shotgun this past 
season, remind them that we ranked 
higher than Florida and Miami and that 
next season we're playing to win it all. "

For the second ACC 
road trip of the season, 
the Tribe faced the 
Wolfpack in Raleigh. 
The offense struggled 
early as Charlie Ward 
had zero completions 
^A'lth five minutes left to 
go m the first half. But 
he hit the next seven of 
eight for 150 yards. 
Tamarick Vanover 
started the Seminole 
scoring with a 60-yard 
reception for a TD. 
Shannon Baker also 
caught two passes for 
Tailbacks Sean 
Jackson and Tiger 
McMillon had good 
games, rushing lor 101

McMillon 's first career

kicked a career best 42- 
yard field goal, and 
Corey Sawyer 
intercepted three 
passes, tying an FSU 
record. The defense 
held N.C. State to two 
held goals and one TD.

The highly favored 
Tribe saw the receivers

times, the offense 
managed to rack up 
points against the 
Wake defense. Charlie 
Ward celebrated his 
first interception-free 
game by throwing for 
240 yards and 1 TD. 
Freshman Tamarick

Bowden said, "I was

Ankle, shoulder and knee injuries were jiut part 
of the game for center Robbie Baker 

Some people did not understand why 

grown men would willingly participate in 

such a violent sport as football. Athletes 

and sports enthusiasts stated it was the 

ove of the game. " Others believed it to 

be stupidity. Center Robbie Baker, an 

expert on this particular question, 

claimed it was a little of 


A filih-year senior, 

Baker had more 

opportunities to think 

about that question than 

he cared to recall. Baker 

Jif played football for nine 

,5n%iHHP# years with no injuries 

^HR before coming to college. 

"^^ However, by the end of his 

^ filth season. Baker had 

^P undergone six surgeries. 

HK Four were tor his right 

shoulder and one was for 

his right ankle. The 

surgery that blemished 

Baker's final season was 

on his knee. 

Baker's left knee was 
injured during a two-a- 
day practice in early 
August. Initially, Baker 
and the team doctor chose 
to work with the knee and 
hoped time would heal it. 
When he made it back lor the third game 
against Clemson, it appeared the 
prognosis had been correct. 

Unfortunately, appearances were 
deceiving. During the game, the knee 
continuously swelled up and was hit. The 
next weekend, instead of playing in the 
N.C. State game. Baker w^as in surgery to 

remove a bone chip, shave the knee cap 
down and take out pinched tissue. 
Incredibly, he was back playing just two 
weeks later. 

"I had no choice, it was my last season. 
It was a combination of stubbornness, 
stupidity and love of the game, " Baker 

However there was more involved than 
physical pain. After the 1991 season, 
Baker had the final surgery to reconstruct 
his right shoulder. After working for 
months to get the shoulder as strong as it 
had been, the knee injury was traumatic. 
" I worked so hard to get back and then all 
of a sudden to have everything taken 
away, it killed me mentally, ' Baker said. 

But once again injuries could not keep 
Baker from playing football. As proven 
by the number of times he had returned 
from surgeries and by playing the entire 
1991 season injured, the combination of 
the love for the game and "stupidity " went 
a long way in overcoming setbacks. After 
the knee surgery, Baker's goal was to play 
in the Miami game, an unlikely possibility 
considering he had just two weeks to gain 
the strength in his knee back. How^ever, 
nothing made Baker forget the pain like 
"the big game " and he was cleared to play. 
"In all reality, I should have waited. I 
did not even know how strong my knee 
was for that game because I w^as afraid 
they would not allow me to play. I had 
made up my mind that playing Miami was 
something I had to do ," Baker said. 

Some thought coming back so soon was 
irrational or stupid. Others, though, saw 
and appreciated the reasoning behind 
Robbie Baker's actions. ..simply the love 
of the game.

Football 105 

Waik-oru rarely daw the dpotUght, but were an 
important part of the Seminole football team 

Football included the glory of cheering 
fans, the road trips to away games, the 
hard work in practice and lots of hits, 
bruises and pain; but then one considered 
those football players went to school on 
full scholarship. 

However, this was not the case for all 
football players. Some students came to 
Florida State to w^alk-on and tried out for 
a position on the team. This did not 
necessarily mean that they would have a 
chance to play, but most were willing to 
strive for their shot at glory. 

The walk-on players were just like 
regular students. They paid for their own 
room, board, tuition and books as well as 
physicals in order to play and insurance in 
case they got hurt. They also did not get 
to travel to all the road games. But they 
worked just as hard as the scholarship 
players, if not harder, because they had 
something to prove. If they worked hard 
and showed improvement, sometimes 
walk-ons were offered scholarships. 
Through hard hits on defense, smooth 
catches on offense and fast feet on both, 
they had to prove that they deserved a 
chance to be in the "show." 

Why would someone work so hard for 
no glory? It seemed like a large sacrifice 
for something which Webster described 
as "a game played between two teams on 
a rectangular held, having two goal posts 
at each end, whose object is to get the ball 
over a goal line or between goal post by 
running, passing or kicking." 

For the players, both walk-on and 
scholarship, however, football was much 

"To me, football is a contact sport. To 
play requires an athlete to be in top

physical condition. It takes motivation, 
dedication and a love for the sport to be 
successful," Todd Fordham, freshman 
offensive tackle scholarship player, said. 
For a walk-on player who had to try 
out to make the team, football meant no 
less. Those special players 
had such a love for the 
sport, it did not matter that 
they paid for school. 
What did matter was that 
they might get a chance to 
play in front of 66,000+ 

"Football is a stress 
reliever. You can't think 
of anything else while you 
are out there or you 11 get 
hurt," sophomore outside 
linebacker David Walker 
said. "As a scholarship 
player you have a better 
chance at playing and all 
of us walk-on players are 
always hoping for a 
scholarship. But I am 
playing for the fun of it. If 
it stopped being fun I'd 
quit, scholarship or not. " 
The football players, 
both walk-on and 
scholarship, were both 
working toward the same goal. ..winning 
football games. 

"I respect all walk-on players. Being a 
scholarship player I go to school free, live 
free, eat free and get benefits that the\' 
don't receive. The scholarship players

themselves," Larry Fleming, split guard,

After enormoiu ^uccedd cu a Seminole^ 
Marvin Jonct^ plans to tackle the NFL 

The end of the season also marked the 
end of an illustrious college career for 
junior linebacker Marvin Jones. 

"There's no question, Marvin is unique. 

In my honest opinion, he is the best 

Inebacker in America," linebackers 

coach Wally Burnham said. "Some guys 

look throughyou, like kids 

do to teachers in the 

classroom. Marvin soaks 

up everything like a 

sponge. It may be 

something I've said 100 

times, yet Marvin listens 

every time. " 

Jones ranked seventh on 
the school's all-time list 
with 369 tackles in three 
seasons. Jones was only 
18 when he earned the 
starting linebacker job and 
the nickname "Shadetree" 
(because the heat 
overwhelmed him the first 
day ol practice). With a 
4.5 second 40-yard dash 
and 38.5 inch vertical leap 
(a team best), it was clear 
why he started every game 
but one. 

Straight out ot Miami 
Northwestern High, 
Jones set a Seminole 
record for freshmen with 133 tackles. "As 
a freshmen, I was more of a wildman. I 
probably could've had 180 tackles had I 
played under control," Jones said. 

Jones developed a great deal since that 
season. In 1991, he finished with 75 solo 
tackles, 125 overall. His junior year, he 
led the team with 1 1 1 tackles, despite a 
severe ankle strain during the season. 

Jones captured the Lombard) Award, 
given to the country's top lineman. "I wish 
I could break this into 1 1 pieces and give 
one to each ot my teammates, " Jones said. 
'You can't be a great linebacker without 
great lineman. " Jones also received the 
Butkus award, given annually to college 
football's premier linebacker. He placed 
fourth in the Heisman race, was The 
Sporting News Player of the Year and 
one of two players to repeat as consensus 

"I like to get big hits because it changes 
an opponent's mind. You put a big hit on 
a guy early in a game, and let him know, 
'this is how it's going to be all day, ' and he 
might as well put on an FSU jersey. He's 
ours, " Jones said. 

Against UF running back Errict Rhett, 
Jones said, "He got around me early and 
said something like he can't be stopped. 
But see, I was still a little rusty. I got some 
WD-40, warmed up and turned out his 
lights. He doesn't know, but I eat running 
backs with ketchup." 

Jones was influenced by his older 
brother Fred, a former FSU football 
player. "He's very supportive," Jones 
said. 'He's like a father figure. We talk 
constantly, he's an irreplaceable person." 

After the Orange Bowl, Jones declared 
his eligibility for the NFL draft. With his 
impressive record, Jones was almost 
assured of a first round pick. 

"When I first got here, I thought he'd be 
up on himself but then I got to know him," 
inside linebacker Henri Crockett said. 
" He always took extra time to help me. He 
even wanted the freshmen to hang with 
him. He has proven himself on the college 
level, it's time for him to prove himself in 
the pros."

This became a tamihar statement as the 
Seminoles ranked #2 in the polls, 
extending their streak of top-4 finishes to 
six years. They finished behind Alabama, 
^vho upset Miami in the Sugar Bo-wl. 
Miami, the only tarnish on the Tribe's 11- 
1 record, ranked #3. 

No one could argue the Seminoles' post- 
season success. The team remained 
undefeated in bowl games since 1982. 
With the Orange Bo-wl ^vin over 
Nebraska, they possessed a winner's 
trophy from every major bowl except the 
Rose. A fifth-year senior won 53 of 61 
games, five bowls, and finished every 
season during his career ranked in the 
nation's top four. 

While players, coaches, and fans were 
pleased with the season, some expressed 
frustration at al'ways coming close to a 
national championship. Without Miami 
on the schedule, the team would have ^von 
every game in 1987, '88 and '92. Charlie 
Ward said, "Take Miami off our schedule, 
we're undefeated. But we're not going to 
do that." 

The ACC championship highlighted the 
season. The Tribe tore through all 
conference opponents in their first ACC 
season. This included come-from-behind 
victories at Clemson and Georgia Tech 
and convincing home wins over Duke, 
Wake Forest, and Maryland. 

Once again, Seminoles garnered many 
honors and awards. The most celebrated 
player, junior linebacker Marvin Jones, 
won the Lombardi and Butkus awards, 
was Sporting News Player of the Year, a

Finishing the season with 
such a flourish, speculations started early 
about next season. Many put the

Probably the best 
argument tor the 
shotgun offense this 
season, the Seminoles 
demolished the Florida 
Gators. The Tribe 
gained 471 yards, 278 
coming in the first half. 
Passing accounted tor 
331 yards, as Ward 
completed 27 of A7 
attempts and no sacks. 
On the receiving end, 
Kevin Knox had a 
stellar day, catching 1 1 
passes for 123 yards. 
Along with 70 yards 
rushing. Ward broke 
the single-season 
record for offense with 
3,151 yards. 

In an ironic twist, 
Seminole fans and 
players found 
themselves rooting for 
the Gators, who played 
Alabama in the St^C 
championship game the 
next week. A UF win 
would set up a rematch 
between the Seminoles 
and Miami for the 
national championship.

Improvement = Success. 
According to the Lady 
Seminole volleyball squad, 
this equation held true. 
Breaking school records, 
boosting individual stats, 
high finishes in 
tournaments and winning 
more games than not were 
some highlights of a season 
of great improvement. In 
addition to success, 
improvement resulted in 
many honors as well. 

The volleyball season 
began with the Gator 
Invitational in Gainesville. 
The Lady Noles finished 
second behind the Gators. 
The team played in four 
other regular season 
tournaments, winning 
their own Florida State 
Classic, the South Florida 
Invitational in Tampa, and 
the Hofstra Invitational in 
Hempsted, New York. 
They placed third in the 
Golden Dome Classic at 
Notre Dame. With a 24-6 
regular season record, the 
squad arrived at the ACC 
Tournament tied with 
Duke atop the conference. 
After defeating Virginia 
and Maryland in the first 
rounds, the team lost a 
five-game heartbreaker 

against the Blue Devils in 
the championship match. 
But they were not through 
yet. They received an 
invitation to the NCAA 
Tournament and played 
UF in the first round. 
Ironically, Florida State's 
season ended just as it 
began, with a loss at the 
hands ol the Lady Gators. 
The Seminoles' 26-8 
record \vas definitely a 
marked improvement over 
the 16-15 record of 1991. 
It did not go unnoticed. 
They finished the season 
ranked 8th in the South 

Two seniors played 
instrumental roles in the 
squad's success. Bianca 
Stevens finished a four- 
year career with honors as 
she was named to the All- 
Tournament Team at the 
Golden Dome Classic, the 
Hofstra Invitational, and 
the ACC Tournament. 
She was also listed on the 
AU-ACC team for the 
season. Sherry Cowling, a 
transfer student, played 
only one season for FSU 
but made her name known 
during that time. She was 
on the All-Tournament 
teams at UF, USF, 

Hofstra, and ACC, and 
also made the All-ACC 
team. Academically, she 
scored high, appearing on 
the GTE All-America 
volleyball third team. 

There were not just 
seniors in the spotlight, 
however. Sophomore 
Luiza Ramos was MVP at 
both the USF and Hofstra 
Invitationals, and made 
the All-Tournament teams 
at UF, Notre Dame and 
the ACC. Ramos also 
made 2nd-team All-ACC. 
Junior Vicki Zinkil, 
whose name already 
appeared in the record 
books, improved her 
standings by moving to 
second in all-time solo 
blocks, fourth all-time in 
block assists and fifth in 
career total blocks. Head 
Coach Cecile Reynaud 
received the honor of ACC 
Coach of the Year. 

Team statistics also 
improved. In 1991, the 
record of matches played 
atTullyGymwas8-7. This 
season they improved that 
home record to 11-2. In 
five-game matches, the 
team advanced from a 1-8 
record in 1991 to 5-3 in the 
1992 season.

Coach Cecile Raynaud 
said ot her volleyball 
team before the 
Atlantic Coast 
Conference post- 
season tournament. 

With a 6-1 conference 
record, they entered 
the tournament 

seeded second behind 
Duke. The Blue 
Devils had the same 
record, but gained the 
top position by 
defeating the Lady 
Seminoles during the 

The squad's first 
game was an easy 
defeat over the 
Virginia Cavaliers in 
three games: 15-7, 15- 
3, 15-4. In the 
semifinals they faced 
iMaryland. A five- 
game, come-from- 
behind win over the 
Terrapins set up the 1- 
2 championship match 
against Duke. 

After falling 9-15 in 
the first game, the 
Seminoles took the 
next two, but then 
dropped the last two 
sets with identical 11- 
15 scores. Luiza 
Ramos and Deanna 
Bosschaert had career- 
high numbers of kills, 
with 23 and 26 
Bosschaert also had a 
career-high 62 attacks, 
while Sherry Cowling 
chalked up 74 assists. 

Based on their strong 
showing in the 
tournament. Cowling, 
Ramos, and Bianca 
Stevens were named to 
the All-Tournament 
team. Reynaud 
received ACC Coach 
of the Year honors.

sherry Cowling returns to Florida and experi- 
ence*^ a duccet^dful senior year a^ a Seminole 

Realizing that the student portion ot 
the "student-athlete" was just as 
important as the latter portion, Sherry 
Cowling, a talented setter for the 
volleyball team, left Syracuse University. 
"Overall the program changed and 
lost sight of what a student-athlete was, " 
Cowling said. "You need a 
good balance because 
there are not too many 
careers in volleyball if you 
sacrifice your education." 
Feeling strongly on 
this matter, the Miami 
native returned home to 
Florida. She then 

enrolled in the Florida 
International University 
and assisted in coaching 
the school's volleyball 
team. It w^as there that 
Cowling recaptured her 
love of volleyball. 

"I didn't touch a 

^^ volleyball for six months 

f 1^1 after I left Syracuse, I 

I ' ^1 never thought I'd want to 

f bM play again," Cowling said. 

"Through working with 

the FIU team, I found the 

joy that I had lost. " 

When Cowling 
moved to Tallahassee and 
transferred to the University, she did so 
with no intentions ol playing volleyball. 
She had grown up a Seminole fan and 
iked the idea of being closer to home and 
warm weather. 

Her career at the University began 
as a walk-on, which was a difficult 

transition for Cowling. At Syracuse she 
had been named the Most Valuable 
Player as a freshman and by her junior 
year she \A'as the team captain, the leader 
in assists, a Regional All-Amencan and a 
selection for the Olympic Festival silver 
medal volleyball squad. 

" I decided to w^ork as hard as I could, 
I wanted to do it, " Cowling said about 
joining the Lady Seminole squad, which 
was what Head Coach Cecile Reynaud 
felt set her apart. 

"Anything we are doing. Sherry 
pushes herself absolutely as hard as she 
can push," Reynaud said. 

"At first we were skeptical, because 
she was coming in as a senior. But she fit 
right in to the team and made a good 
impact, both attitude-wise and on the 
court," teammate Adria Ciraco said. 

In one short season. Cowling proved 
to be an asset to the women's volleyball 
team. She was named to the second team 
All-South Region and finished second on 
the University's single season assist 
charts. Cowling was also named to the 
All-Tournament teams at the Gator 
Invitational, South Florida Invitational, 
and Hofstra Invitational. 

In the ACC Tournament, Cowling's 
performance placed her on the All- 
Tournament team, and she was also 
named to the All-ACC team for the 

Her academic emphasis and 
achievements did not go unnoticed either. 
GTE Corporation named her to the All- 
America Volleyball third team for the 
entire nation. Cowling graduated in May 
w^ith a degree in economics and business.

The Seminole football 
and basketball teams were 
not the only ones who 
racked up the frequent 
flyer miles. In January the 
cheerleaders traveled to 
compete in the National 
Collegiate Cheerleading 
Championship in Dallas, 
Texas, while the Golden 
Girls performed in a 
December halftime show 
in Japan. 

For the 18-member 
cheerleading squad, it was 
the first time in three years 
they were able to make the 
trip to the National 
Championship. Their 
efforts paid off as they 
placed fourth in the nation, 
their highest finish ever. 
This was quite an 
considering the teams that 
placed above them had all 
placed first in past years. 

The squad remained on 
the go, performing at the 
Orange Bowl in Miami, 
the basketball game 
against the University of 

Florida in Tallahassee and 
the NCCC competition in 
Dallas, all in one week. 

Senior member Nicole 
Batchelor attributed their 
success to their 

"We knew we were good 
and we didn't want any 
odds to keep us from being 
the best," she said. 

While the cheerleaders 
prepared for nationals, the 
Golden Girls were 
preparing for their own 
show. Invited to perform 
based on a videotaped 
performance, the Golden 
Girls packed it up and 
headed to Japan to 
perform in the Coca-Cola 
Classic football game. 

Although not a 
competition, the Golden 
Girls performance meant 
just as much as they were 
chosen out of various 
dance teams nationally. 

Dancer Marcy Kislia 
said her favorite part of the 
trip was how respected 
they were because of their 

dancing ability. 

"They thought we were 
stars," she said. 

The Golden Girls have 
existed for over ten years. 
They have grown to 14 
girls that perform at 
basketball games, 
competitions, rush parties, 
philanthropy projects and 
community activities. 

The University's 
cheerleaders have also 
been around for many 
years doing their best to 
rouse the spirit of 
Seminoles everywhere. A 
coed team, the squad 
practiced long hours to 
strut their stuff at all 
football and men's 
basketball games, as well 
as charity benefits and 
alumni gatherings. 

Batchelor said her 
favorite part of her 3 year 
experience as a varsity 
cheerleader was the pride. 

"It is such a high to be 
part of our athletic 
program, " she said, -con^t-

"FSU is a great school 
with a strong tradition. 
Although it is a big 
school, it has a small 
school feeling, and the 
people are great. " This 
was how Andy McNeil 
would describe Florida 
State to a prospective 

McNeil served as 
the University's Spirit 
Coordinator. This 
meant he was in charge 
ol the Varsity and J. V. 
cheerleaders, the 
Golden Girls and the 
Batgirls. He organized 
all tryouts, practices, 
clinics and travel 
arrangements lor all 
three squads 
throughout the 
football, basketball and 
baseball seasons. 

McNeil, who cheered 
for Florida State 
himselt, interviewed tor 
the job after graduating 
with a degree in 
marketing in 1990. He 
worked out of the 
school's Sports 
Marketing department. 

Whether it was any of 
the three major sports 
or the w^omen's sports, 
the best part of 
McNeil's job was, 
"Helping support

As tor the practice and physical 
endurance, Batchelor said it was all worth 
it. She believed this to be the best and 
most diverse squad ever at 
the University. She said 
the biggest sacrifice was 
missing so much school. 

"It IS like having a 35- 
hour a ^veek job, including 
practice, game time, travel, 
alumni and charitable 
appearances," Batchelor 

Along with the varsity 
squad, there existed a 14- 
member junior varsity 
squad. This team 
pertormed as the "Lady 
Seminole Squad" at 
women's volleyball and 
basketball games. 
Members w^ere able to 
move up or down betw^een 
the junior varsity and 
varsity squads depending 
on various factors 
affecting performances 
and responsibilities. 
Each of the three groups 
held try outs annually. Cheerleaders 
hosted theirs tor the varsity in the Spring 

and the junior varsity in the Fall. Golden 
Girls try outs consisted of a two day clinic 
in May. The first day, participants were 
taught a dance routine and the fight song. 
The actual try out consisted of those two 
activities in addition to kicks, turns and 

The three groups did, on occasion, 
combine their efforts. The biggest 
example of this was a combination routine 
performed at the Homecoming Pow^ 
Wow. They attended the same summer 
camp and practice times were similar. 
Kislia believed the two groups got along 
well and complemented each other in 
performance, with both groups looking 
forward to more throughout the year. 
Andy McNeil coached the two 
cheerleading squads, while also advising 
the Golden Girls and Bat Girls. 

"They work together when needed but 
each have separate jobs," he said.

tion , 
in the 

ACC season number 
two. What could Florida 
State expect from its 
basketball teams? The 
Lady Seminoles hoped to 
improve on the 8-8 
conlerence record from 
last season. The men's 
team had high hopes lor a 
conference championship 
after finishing second in 
the regular season and 
third in the post-season 

As the Seminoles 
prepared for the 
competition, both teams 
looked to seniors lor 
leadership. Women's 
coach Marynell Meadors 
relied on the experience of 
Chantelle Dishman, Tia 
Paschal and Danielle 
Ryan and they did not 
disappoint her. 
Unfortunately, Dishman 
injured her knee twice and 
was out for most of the 
season, so she did not get to 
play up to her potential. 
But both Paschal and 
Ryan proved to be 
excellent leaders. Paschal 
earned MVP honors at the 
Dial Soap Classic 
Tournament and made the 

all-tournament team at the 
Oakland Tribune Classic. 
She broke numerous 
school records and at the 
end ol the season was 
named to the All-ACC first 
team. Ryan made the all- 
tournament teams at the 
both the Dial Soap and 
Oakland Tribune Classics. 
She excelled in the 
classroom as well, being 
named ACC Scholar- 
Athlete of the Week and a 
GTE Academic All- 
American. Both seniors 
had games in which they 
scored over 30 points. 
Paschal with three and 
Ryan with one. 

The Lady Seminoles 
competed in two 
tournaments during the 
season and did w^ell. They 
won the Dial Classic at 
home and were runners- 
up in the Oakland Tribune 
Classic in California. As a 
team, they broke the 
record for the most three- 
pointers in a season. 

Coach Kennedy also 
looked to three seniors 
who showed themselves to 
be some of the geatest 
basketball pi ay e r s in 

school history, Sam 
Cassell, Rodney Dobard, 
and Doug Edwards. 
Kennedy also had a full 
arsenal of athletes in 
addition to the big three, 
including last season's 
Rookie ol the Year Bob 
Sura, team leader Charlie 
Ward, experienced seniors 
Lorenzo Hands and Byron 
Wells and talented new 
Ireshmen Derrick Carroll, 
Maurice Robinson, Scott 

Sam Cassell, Doug 
Edwards, and Bob Sura 
earned spots on the All- 
ACC second team. All 
three made their marks in 
scoring. Exlwards scored 
in double figures 84 out of 
91 games during his 
career, Cassell 62 out of 66, 
and Sura 54 out of 65 
games. This season 
Dobard broke the record 
of the most games played 
as a Seminole with 122. 

The men's team was 
plagued with injuries 
throughout the season, but 
still managed to capture 
second place in the ACC 
and go all the way to the 
final eight in the NCAA.

Chances were, you got

hoopsters convincingK'

It all started with a

ranked University of

Tech, the #23 team. 
Ironically, head coach 
Marynell Meadors had 
recently been inducted 
into the Tennessee Tech 
Hall of Fame for starting 
and coaching their 
basketball program for 
16 years. 

The team's next three 
wins were not only over 
ranked teams, but ACC 
opponents as well. They 
defeated UNC (#15) 
and Georgia Tech (#23) 
both on the road.

called "the biggest in

Even with the big

Tia PcuchaL learned at a young age how to 
play boA^ketball ^With the boyd " 


Tia Paschal was known and respected 
on any court on campus. Whether one 
was at Tully Gym or the Leach Center, she 
was amazing to watch. 

Paschal, the 6-foot- 1 senior from 
Thomson, Georgia, was the most versatile 
player in the history of 
women's basketball at 
FSU. She could play on 
the inside or outside. She 
had speed, endurance and 
strength to defend against 
the toughest opponent. 

Paschal broke two 
school records, one for the 
most steals in a season and 
another for the most points 
in a game against 15th- 
ranked North Carolina. 
Paschal scored 38 points to 
ead the team in 85-66 

"I had no idea the school 
record was "hi points in a 
game. It was a big surprise 
when the team told me I 
had broken the record, " 
Paschal said. "It was my 
night. Every thing I put up 
went in and 38 went in. " 

North Carolina's 
Hatchell remembered 
Paschal's most memorable game against 
them. "She was unreal that day," Hatchell 
said. (Paschal also had 1 1 rebounds, lour 
steals and shut dow^n one of UNC's 
leading scorers. "She was inside, she was 

outside, she posted up, she rebounded, 
she brought the ball down the floor, she 
blocked shots, she made steals-she was all 
world that day and we couldn't do 
anything to stop her. " 

Playing basketball was not always easy 
for Paschal. There was a time when she 
would go to the park with her sister to play 
with the guys and neither she nor her 
sister were picked to be on the teams. "I 
was small, skinny and could not get the 
ball. So the boys did not want me to play, " 
Paschal remembers. 'I used to practice 
with a bicycle rim and a piece of wood 
hung up on a pole. As I got older and the 
guys saw I could play, they started picking 
me to be on their team." 

Paschal did not stop playing ball with 
the guys when she got to college. Her 
attitude was that playing with the guys 
taught speed, strength and helped rid fear 
of the big girls becuase she would keep 
body contact with the boys. "I played at 
Leach with guys during the off season, 
they make you more aggressive, ' Paschal 
said. 'Their attitude is if you can't play, 
stay off the court. ' 

Paschal wants to play professional 
women's basketball in Europe. Then she 
wants to play in the 1996 OKonpics. If her 
knees last that long she will have reached 
her ultimate goal in basketball. 

Paschal majored in criminology. After 
basketball, she hoped to have a job as an 
undercover cop working in narcotics to 
give the youth of America a better chance 
by helping to rid the streets of drugs.

The men 'c^ basketball team took a licking^ 
but kept on ticking 

Everything pointed toward a 
spectacular season tor the men's 
basketball team. With all the starters 
returning from a Sweet 16 team, 
combined with a talented freshman class, 
the Seminole fans dared to expect a Final 
Four appearance. Then, the season 

It started in the opening minutes of the 
very first game, versus Siena in the 
preseason NIT tournament. Guard 
Chuck Graham went down with a knee 
injury. He sustained ligament damage 
and underwent surgery, ending his 
season. Graham took a medical redshirt 
to save his final season for 1993-94. 

One dow^n, who was next? Andre Reid 
broke his hand ■when it was slammed in a 
car door, ending his season as well. Doug 
Fxiw^ards broke his finger in the warmups 
before a game against Maryland- 
Baltimore County on Dec. 28, but was 
only out for two games. 

All these injuries occurred before the 
team started ACC competition in 
January. In addition to the nagging 
absences of key players in the first part ol 
the season, the team was also without 
Charlie Ward, -who was quarterbacking 
the football team. They started strong in 
the ACC after he joined the team. Then 
against Georgia Tech, Ward went down 
with a dislocated shoulder, the same 
shoulder he injured in the 1992 NCAA

son. Photo by Steve Stiber. 

Carroll, who gained the starting position 
when Ward -went down, broke his left foot 
in early February and missed five games. 
Ironically, this was season #13 for head 
coach Pat Kennedy. "I don't know what I 
did this summer, but it must have been 
horrible. I never had injuries like this in 
my 13 years of coaching. 
It's catching up with me in 
one year, " Kennedy said. 
It was not just injuries, 
how^ever. Bob Sura and 
Doug Eklwards were both 
suspended for one game 
lor missing classes. They 
missed an ACC matchup 
versus N.C. State in 

However, the situation 
finally started to improve. 
Kerner returned for the 
N.C. State game, and 
contributed to a 72-71 
victory. Ward returned 
where he left off - against 
Georgia Tech-htted with a 
special brace lor his 
shoulder. Carroll also 
returned for that game, 
which the Seminoles won 
and clinched second place 
in the ACC. 

By March Madness, 
Kennedy had all his players back injury- 
free. The casualties did have a good side. 
It gave younger players, such as Scott 
Shepherd and Alaunce Robinson early 
experience. And ultimately, that 
experience would benefit in future

\ It seemed an unlikely 
H possibility- FSU, who 
m had fallen out of the AP 
1 op 25, hosting Duke, 
ranked #6 and the two- 
time defending national 
champions. However, 
the 13,333 fans that 
packed the Civic Center 
saw one ot the most 
exciting games of the 
season. The lead 
changed hands 15 times 
during the game and 
twice FSU battled back 
from double-digit 
deficits to tie the score. 
In the closing seconds of 
regulation, with the 
score tied at 80, Charlie 
Ward knocked the ball 
loose from Duke's 
Grant Hill to prevent 
any more scoring and to 
advance to overtime. 

The lead continued to 
go back and forth in 
OT, but with 7 seconds 
left, and the score 88-86 
in Duke's favor, Byron 
Wells, a reserve 
forward, became FSU's 
hero. His three-point 
shot bounced off the rim 
and then sank in for the 
Seminole win, called 
the "greatest win " by 
FSU coach Pat 

"We worked seven 
years for this. I think 
for Florida State 
University basketball, 
with the Final Four of 
'72, it was our greatest 
moment, " Kennedy 

Although Wells was 
the overtime hero, it 
was a team effort that 
produced the win. 
Doug Fxiwards led the 
team with 2 1 points and 
12 rebounds before 
fouling out late in the 
second half. Bob Sura 
and Rodney Dobard 
both had 16 points, 
while Sam Cassell 
scored 15 and held 
Thomas Hill to only 5. 
Charlie Ward scored 
1 1, while Wells finished 
with 10. 

"We were too 
exhausted to try 
to go to a second 
OT and I thought 
our best shot was 
to win it with 
three. I thought it 
w^as the best effort 
of any team I've 
ever had. It was 
truly a special 
effort. "-P^z/^

"Our goal defi- 
nitely was to get 
to the national 
championship. I

a good season, but 
not a great one 
simply because we

Impact players are 
usually those with the 
most experience and 
that proved to be the 
case for the men's 
basketball team. Three 
seniors provided 
leadership and skill 
throughout the season. 
Collectively, the 
seniors accounted for 
56 of the team's 86.2 
points a game and 60 
percent of the rebounds. 
Cassell, from 
Baltimore, Maryland, 
started all 35 games for 
the Seminoles. He 
spent many games in 
the point guard 
position when Charlie 
Ward was out. His 
most stunning statistic 
occurred during the 
NCAA Tournament, 
when he shot 9 of 9 from 
three-point range in the 
first two games, setting 
a tournament record. 

Dobard broke records 
himself this season. 
During his FSU career 
he played 122 games, 
lour more than the 
previous record- 
holder. When Dobard 
scored 12 or more 
points, the team posted 
a 37-4 mark, proving 
that he was one of the 
most dependable 
players on the team. 

Edwards showed his 
stuff both in scoring 
and rebounding, 
having double figures 
for both in several 
games this season. He 
was the first player in 
school history to score 
at least 1,500 points, 
700 rebounds and 200 

These players enjoyed 
remarkable careers and 
it would be tough to 
replace them in the next

Im. J- 

Zl6e Seminole*^ bounce back from the AC C 
Tournament to a strong dhowing in the NCAA 

After battling through another season 

the the Atlantic Coast Conference, the 

men's basketball team prepared for the 

postseason ACC and NCAA 

Tournaments. They finished the regular 

season with a 24-9 record, 12-5 in the 

conference, capturing the second place 

spot. They swept Wake 

Forest, Maryland, N.C. 

State, Clemson and 

Georgia Tech and split 

games with Duke and 


The team traveled to 
Charlotte, NC, for the 
four-day ACC 
Tournament in March. As 
the #2 seed they faced 
seventh-seeded Clemson 
in the first game. In what 
was a surprise to just about 
everyone, Clemson sent 
the Seminoles back to 
Tallahassee with a 87-75 
loss. This was despite a 
spectacular performance 
by the senior Doug 
Exlwards, who had team 
highs in scoring, 
rebounding and assisting. 
Even with that much- 
too-short trip to Charlotte, 
the Seminoles became the 
#3 seed in the Southeast Region of the 
NCAA Tournament. This meant they 
would play the first two rounds in 
Orlando, virtually in their own backyard. 
The first game was against Evansville. 
Was another big upset at hand? Not this 
time. The Seminoles regained the 

confidence they seemed to have lost and 
easily defeated the the Aces 82-70. In the 
second round they faced Tulane and it 
was the same story, only to a greater 
degree, as they won 94-63. Sam Cassell's 
shooting came alive in these two games as 
he scored 18 points versus Evansville and 
3 1 against Tulane. He also went 9 of 9 in 
three-point shooting, an NCAA record. 

With these wins, the team had advanced 
to the Sweet 16, repeating last season's 
performance. In the next game they met 
Western Kentucky, a team that had upset 
the #2 seed, Seton ffall. Called a 
"Cinderella team," WKU took the team to 
overtime before the Seminoles pulled off 
the win, 81-78. Turnovers and low free- 
throw shooting played a big part in the 
Seminoles struggle, but in key situations, 
several members of the team stepped up 
and made the big plays. 

The region final pitted Florida State 
against Kentucky, the #1 seed. The 
Wildcats ended the Seminoles NCAA trip 
with a 106-81 victory. The Tribe kept it 
close in the first half, gaining the lead at 
one point in the first half. Doug Eldwards, 
despite fouling out late in both games, 
played his final two games as a Seminole 
in style as he provided 19 points against 
Western Kentucky and 15 against 

Although they experienced ups and 
downs in post-season tournament play, 
the Seminoles had nothing to be ashamed 
of. Finishing second place in the regular- 
season ACC and advancing to the "Elite 
8" of the NCAA Tournament proved the 
Seminoles were one of the premier college 
basketball teams in America.

The men's and women's 
swimming and diving 
teams gave solid perfor- 
mances at the Atlantic 
Coast Conference Cham- 
pionships. Both placed 
fourth in the highly com- 
petitive ACC improving 
on their fifth place finish in 
1992. Head Coach Terry 
iMaul, in his 18th season at 
the helm of the swimming 
teams, has guided 32 All- 
Americans and led the 
program to an overall 
record of 174-94-2.

to first place finishes. 
Freshmen Helen Jepson 
and Robert Braknis and 
sophmores Dora Bralic 
and Ignacio Merino cap- 
tured individual ACC 
titles. Being underclass- 
men, these individuals 
would provide a strong 
nucleus for the upcoming 

During the regular sea- 
son the men posted a 8-4 
record and the women 
closed the season strong 

after a shaky start with 6 
wins, 5 losses. The swim- 
mers also set nine new 
school records. Senior 
Kiki Steinberg broke a 
pair of records at the Semi- 
nole Winter Invitational; 
the 100 backstroke record 
and her own record in the 
200 back. At the ACC 
Championships Ignacio 
Merino broke three school 
records in the 100 and 200 
butterfly and 200 breast- 
stroke. Robert Braknis 
shattered two marks in the 
100 and 200 backstroke, 
and Helen Jepson set the 
200 fly record. The men's 
relay team of Braknis, Me- 
rino, Greg Miller, and 
Jose' Gutierrez broke the 
400 medley relay with a 
time of 3: 19.44. 

The performances of 
Braknis, Merino, and 
Jepson qualified them for 
the NCAA Championship 
meet held in March in 
Minneapolis. This meet 
brought together the top 
collegiate swimmers in the 
country. "It was a real 
honor to swim in such a 
prestigious meet," Jepson 

Florida State would host 
the ACC Championships 
next season. "It will bring 
much excitement and en- 
thusiasm to the swimming 
program next year hosting 
the conference meet here 
in Tallahassee," Nada 
Cenanovik from Ontario, 
Canada said. "We have a 
chance to further advance 
in the conference and 
make a strong showing in 
our home pool, "Julie 
Peluso said. 

The men's team gradu- 
ated three seniors; Cory 
Hyrnyk, diver Rob 
Caicedo, and team co-cap- 
tain John Bates. The 
women's team lost a few 
more, with Missy 
Connolly, Suzie Gunn, 
Meghan Henning, Valerie 
Moore, diver Shelly King, 
and team co-captain Kiki 
Steinberg all departing. 
"We have met at a cross- 
roads," Coach Maul said. 
With the addition of new 
signees and the continued 
training and growth of the 
underclassmen, the Semi- 
noles could be a fierce 
competitor for the ACC 
title in the future.

Ecuador. Ontario, Quebec and 

Vancouver, Canada. Sounds like a pretty 

extensive world tour, doesn't it? Actually 

these were the countries 

from which the 

international members of 

the swimming and diving 

teams originated. The 

women's team had lour

team John Bates, Thomas

Jose Gutierrez, Ignacio 

Merino, Greg Miller and 

Alfonso Reims migrated 

from foreign lands. 

Many of these athletes 
came to the United States 
to get their college 
education and to train in 
exceptional facilities. The 
state of Florida, with its 
warm climate, was also the 
number one choice for 
swimmers, as indicated by the number of 
international swimmers and divers at the 
state universities that offer a swimming 

Back in their home countries, many of 
the swimmers achieved recognition 
before they came to college. Dora Bralic' 

held the Yugoslavian record in the 100 
breaststroke and 400 freestyle relay. 
Claudia Wilson competed in the South 
American Championships for Brazil and 
had a second and third place finish. She 
also took first place in the 400 IM at the 
Brazil Open. John Bates was a regional 
finalist in Australia. Thomas Bendixen 
was the Danish junior record holder in the 
4 X 100 medley and freestyle relays. The 
United States' neighbors both north and 
south placed members on the Seminole 
squad. For Canada, Robert Braknis won 
the 50 free at the Canadian Nationals and 
Greg Miller was a finalist in the 200 fly 
and 100 backstroke at the Canadian 
World Finals. Miller also competed on 
the Provincial Youth Team for the 
Western Canada Games. For Mexico, 
Rolando Galindo placed second in the 
200 breaststroke at the Mexican 
Nationals and third at the Central 
American Games. Ignacio Merino was a 
national qualifier for the 100 and 200 
butterfly in Ecuador. 

Why did such great numbers of 
international athletes come to the United 
States? 'There are more opportunities 
here for them to compete. In European 
countries they don't compete on the 
collegiate level. There are also more 
educational opportunities for them in the 
U.S. Coaches at Florida State did not 
travel abroad to actively recruit these 
athletes, although some other schools may 
have done this," assistant swim coach 
Don Gibb said. 

"International students definitely make 
an impact. They are usually in the top 
group of swimmers, " Coach Gibb said.

Smmtner Ignacio Merino hcu achieved ducce^d, 
but continued to det hid goaU higher 

Ignacio Merino began swimming at the 
age oi 6 in his hometown in Quito- 
Victoria, Ecuador. There he developed a 
strong interest in swimming and began his 
hfelong relationship with the sport. In 
Ecuador he qualified for the national team 
in the 100 and 200 butterfly. After 
graduating from high school , he came to 
the United States to train. Before 
attending the University he spent a year 
in Amencus, Georgia taking classes and 
training four hours a day. Ignacio had 
scholarship offers from other schools 
throughout the country including the 
University of Arizona and Louisiana 
State but chose FSU because ol the 
excellent sport facilities, warm climate, 
friendly atmosphere and opportunity to 
improve his times. 

Ignacio had little trouble making the 
transition from club swimming to 
swimming in the competitive Atlantic 
Coast Conference. During his Ireshman 
year he missed the NCAA quahlying time 
in the 200 breaststroke by only hall a 
second. As a sophomore, Merino was the 
top returning scorer tor the season. He 
also broke three school records in the 200 
butterfly (1:47:29), 100 butterfly (48.64 
sec), and 200 breaststroke. Merino 
earned a spot on the All-ACC team at the 
end of the season, one ol six Seminoles 
who ^A'ere selected. He was also one ol 
only two swimmers on the men's team to 
compete in the prestigious NCAA 
Swimming and Diving Championships 
held in Indianapolis in the spring. 

Some of Ignacio's future goals included 
becoming an All-American swimmer

which required placing in the Top 8 at the 
NCAA championships. With the help oi 
his leadership, he also wanted to "bring 
the whole Florida State swimming team to 
a new level of competitiveness. I ■would 
like to have the team place higher in the 
conference meet and beat 
our archrivals North 
Carolina and North 
Carolina State." 

"We have everything 
here at this school to take 
us to that new level," 
Merino said, referring to 
the newly purchased 
equipment, weightroom, 
Leach Center and the 
quality of the swimmers 
already here in the 

Alter swimming 
Ignacio planned to 
graduate with a bachelor's 
degree in Economics and 
possibly go on to graduate 
school, continuing at 
FSU. Another ambition of 
Merino's was to stay in 
Tallahassee and help 
coach the team after 
graduation. He felt that 
sw^imming had a bright 
future on the national level and he hoped 
to be a part of it. 

"Swimming has helped me learn about 
myself as well as develop a competitive 
relationship with the others around me, 
especially the members of the team," 
Ignacio said.

The Florida State

Gibb, a 1985 graduate 
from the University ot 
Florida, was the top 
assistant tor the Gator 
swimming team for five 
seasons before coming 
to Seminole territory. 
While competing in 
college, Gibb was the 
SEC champion in the 
100-yard freestyle in 
1982 and placed 
seventh in the same 
event at the 1983 
NCAA championships. 
He was also a member 
ot the 400-yard relay 
team that placed first in 
the NCAA's and 
cliched the national title 
for Florida in 1983. 

At Florida State, 
Gibb hopes to bring 
some ot that same 
enthusiasm and 
excitement that he 
experienced as a 
swimmer and assistant 
coach at UF. 

Junior Dan Wegner, 
a freestyle swimmer, 
said, "Coach Gibb has 
been very helpful to the 
entire team, but his 
work with the sprinters 
has especially helped." 

"The training is 
very hard. For 
many members of

Big victories, 
surprising sweeps, 
individual standouts, all 
added to the prestige 
that Seminole baseball 
garnered over theyears. 
The team compiled a 39- 
15 record during the 
regular season. 
However, it ^vas 
individual statistics and 
a very young team that 
made this season special 
and gave head coach 
Mike Martin nothing 
but optimism for 
upcoming seasons. 

The team started the 
season with a seven 
game win streak before 
facing the first real test

Fullerton. The Titans

College World Series 
quest the season before.

baseball programs, so 
March started with a 
bang when the 
Seminoles sw^ept a four 

game series over the 
Florida Gators. In April, 
the team also swept Miami 
at home and beat the 
Hurricanes once down in 
Miami. In the tough 
Atlantic Coast Conference, 
the Seminoles compiled a 
14-9 record. NoACCteam 
swept Florida State during 
the season. 

The team experienced a 
roller coaster ride through 
the weekly polls. They 
started ranked as high as 
#10 in the Collegiate 
Baseball poll, but Baseball 
America ignored them. 
However, that publication 
did award them their 
highest ranking of the 
season, #2, during April 
when the team had a 31-7 
record. They ended the 
regular season ranked as 
high as #9. 

Several individuals stood 
out during the season. 
Sophomore pitcher Paul 
Wilson captured ACC 
Pitcher of the Week honors 
three times, and had the 
conference's lowest ERA, 
1.48, with a 10-3 record. 
Freshman Jonathan 
Johnson boasted a 7-1 

record with a 1.69 ERA, 
second in the ACC. 
Catcher Mike Martin, Jr. 
was named ACC Player of 
the Week in March by 
hitting .375 during a four 
game streak, with a home 
run and five RBI's. At the 
end of the season he threw 
out seven of nine base 
stealers. Freshman first 
baseman Doug 
Mientkiewicz was one of 
the top hitters for the team 
and league. Freshman 
Mickey Lopez, senior Ty 
Mueller, and junior Mike 
Schmitz also had high 
batting averages. 

Coach Mike Martin 
celebrated his 1,000th 
game and his 750th win 
during the season. Martin 
accumulated a 754-254-3 

The Seminoles headed 
into the post-season ACC 
Tournament in Greenville, 
South Carolina seeded 
number three. After that 
tournament, the NCAA 
Regional was the only 
obstacle remaining 
between the Seminoles 
and another trip to the 
College World Series.

The major league drah and graduation 
took key talent from the Seminole 
baseball team. Pitching was a big 
concern, as the Seminoles lost their top 
three pitchers. This posed difficulties to 
a team who based their philosophy on 
pitching and defense. 

"I don't think we've had ayear where 
\A'e've lost our entire 
starting rotation and as 
many position players as 
w^e 've lost. I don't 
remember having to start 
over like this, " head coach 
Mike Martin said. 

The team recruited 18 

new players, including 12 

treshmen. This troubled 

JT <^ "1 some because the team was 

^^"'^ young and inexperienced 

in pi ay ing together. 

Baseball America did not 

even rank the team in the 

preseason top 25. But not 

\ flnk: everyone felt that being 

such ayoung group would 

hamper the University's 

t ability to held a winning 
team. Collegiate Baseball 
Magazine rated the 1992 
recruiting class as 
America's best and ACC 
coaches picked the Tribe 
to \vin the league. 
"This is the most impressive class I can 
remember. Recruiting coordinator 
Jamey Shouppe did an outstanding job, " 
Martin said. Tw^elve of the 18 had been 
drafted during their career. 

Second basemen Chad Sheffer was 


drafted in the fourth round. "I didn't 
think I was ready to jump into pro 
baseball. I m definitely glad I came here, " 
Shefier said. "The coaches really push 
me. I've learned so much in every single 
game and practice. " 

Martin described Doug Mientkiewicz 
as the "most impressive player in 
preseason v/orkouts. " In fact, he started 
on opening day over senior Kevin 

Mientkiewicz was a twelfth round 
selection by the Toronto Blue Jays and 
almost signed with them. "I ^A'ould've 
gone except for the fact that I would have 
been going from Westminster where we 
were in the spotlight to the minor leagues 
where you're just another number, " 
Mientkiewicz said. "I wanted three or 
four more years in the spotlight. You 
don't get that in the minors. You're just 
another kid. " 

Pitcher Jonathan Johnson was another 
freshman starter. Like many of his 
teammates, he was drafted but opted to 
play for FSU. "I knew we ^A'ere losing a lot 
of talent but I knew there were a lot of us 
freshman signing and I was excited about 
coming, " Johnson said. 

The newcomers were excited to join a 
team that has gone to the World Series 
five times in the last seven years. 

"We have so much talent and if we don't 
win the College World Series this year, 
it'll be our sophomore and junior year," 
Johnson said. 

"I want another ring and I want to make 
Omaha every year I'm here," 
Mientkiewicz said. 

"I want it all, " Sheffer said.

Baseball competition got toiigh cu the 
Seminole^ advanced in the AC C and NCAA 

An active postseason had 
become a trademark for the Seminole 
baseball team, usually including a trip to 
the College World Series. But stiff 
competition and tough games kept the 
young team from returning to the CWS 
in Omaha, Nebraska. 

The team started the ACC 
Tournament as the #3 seed and played 
their first game against Clemson. It 
seemed as if Clemson held a curse over 
the Seminoles as they lost to the Tigers for 
the eighth time in nine meetings. 

But the Seminoles finally got the 
ball rolling in the double elimination 
tournament with an 11-2 win over 
Virginia. During that game Coach Mike 
Martin learned that Florida State was 
awarded a host site for the NCAA 
tournament, hosting the six-team East 

"I must admit, that news was a 
tremendous lift for me mentally," Martin 

The Seminoles continued their 
winningwayswithavictory over Georgia 
Tech and finally over Clemson. The 
Noles played N.C. State in the semifmal, 
but the ACC Tobacco Road ended there 
as the Wolfpack won and advanced to the 
championship game against Clemson. 
Clemson took the ACC title. 

Florida State returned home for 
the regional tournament, the final step to 
the CWS. The top seed. Long Beach 
State, ranked among the nation's elite, 
and the Noles started off with state rival, 
the University of South Florida. The 
team rallied in the seventh inning with

three runs to beat the Bulls 4-2. Third- 
seeded Notre Dame was the next 
opponent and the Seminoles soundly 
defeated them l-li. Senior Ty Mueller 
shone in front of the home crowd as he hit 
a grand slam and also thre'w out the game- 
winning run. 

The third day 
proved to be a long one for 
the Seminoles. In the first 
game. Long Beach State 
beat the team 4-1. After 
several rain delays, 
Florida State finally 
started the next battle, an 
elimination game with 
Notre Dame at 10:05 p.m. 
Three hours later, the 
Seminoles came up short 
and were eliminated with a 
4-3 loss. 

"I've been here 
for five years, and it's hard 
to believe it's 
over, "Mueller, one of the 
only two senior starters, 
said as the team played the 
final game of the season at 
Dick Howser Stadium. 

However, the 
future looked bright with 
only five players finishing 
their college careers. The 
majority of the team would 
be back in 1994 to try advancing even 
further in post season play. 

"This team is so young that only 
good things are in store for these guys, " 
Mueller said.

llorida State earned 
the right to claim "state 
champs" in baseball. 
Atter sweeping Florida 
earlier in the season, the 
Seminoles shut down 
the Miami Hurricanes 
in a three-game 
weekend series pLued 
at Dick H o w .s e I 

Paul Wilson pitched 
(1 the hrst game, a 7-0 
shutout. The score 
went 1-0 all the \\a\ 
until the eighth inning, 
when designated hittei 
Mike Schmitz opened a 
six run rally with a solo 
homer. Wilson pitchetl 
a complete hve-hillei, 
backed up by detensi\t 
plays from the Seminole 
infield. His record 
improved to 8-2. 

Miami's frustrations 
continued in game two. 
After scoring a run in 
the fourth inning, the 
Hurricanes fell apart, 
starting with the head 
coach's ejection over a 
controversial call. 
Plight was the magic 
number, as freshman 
pitcher Jonathan 
Johnson struck out 
eight in as many 
innings, and the 
Seminole batters drove 
in eight runs. 

The sweep became 
complete Sunday 
afternoon as the 
Seminoles defeated the 
'Canes 6-2. Mickey 
Lopez's single brought 
in two runs to start a 
four run rally in the 
fourth. John Wasdin 
pitched 7 2/3 innings, 
striking out nine and 
giving up two runs. 
John Nadeau came in 
for the save. 

Coach Martin 
described the series as 
"a monumental feat. 
You just don't sweep 

Florida State, ranked 
#6 before the series, 
jumped four notches to 
the #2 spot after the

dhutout the 


and rewrote 

the record 





It did not matter what 
aspect of the game one 
looked at when he studied 
the Florida State softbail 
team, because the Lady 
Seminoles had it all. 
Batting averages, home 
runs, stolen bases, 
strikeouts, shutouts, the 
list went on and on. Coach 
Gral's team boasted 
dominating players that at 
each position played their 
game well. And when they 
got together as a team, 
well, they usually could 
not be stopped. 
Much to their opponent's 
dismay, all the factors 
resulted in havoc for the 
other teams. The 
Seminoles compiled a 49-6 
record before heading to 
the NCAA Regionals. The 
Regionals was the first 
step on the team s quest lor 
another trip to the College 
World Series. They 
outscored their opponents 
304-38 with 36 shutouts. 

Five of the team's six 
losses occurred during 
tournaments, but they also 
added three tourney titles 

under the belt. They won 
their own Lady Seminole 
Invitational tournament, 
the UNC Invitational, and 
the Atlantic Coast 
Championships. They also 
won the consolation 
bracket of the Pony 
Invitational in Fullerton, 
California, a tournament 
featuring most of the 
nation's top 10 teams. 

Because of their 
domination on all sides of 
the diamond, the Lady 
Seminoles were definitely 
not a one-person team. 
The point was proved 
further by the variety of 
names that showed up on 
the all-tournament teams. 
Catcher Leslie Adams w^as 
MVP of the Seminole 
Invitational with Leslie 
Barton, Maria Looper, 
and Susan Buttery joining 
her as honorees. Toni 
Gutierrez, a pitcher, was 
MVP of the UNC 
Invitational, and Leslie 
Barton, Lisa Davidson, 
and Shamalene Wilson 
made the all-tournament 


Several members of the 
team showed up in the 
Florida State record books 
as well. Susan Buttery, the 
top hitter with a .393 
batting average, was first 
on the list in At Bats, Runs, 
and Hits categories. 
Senior outfielder Leslie 
Barton was number one in 
stolen bases with 63 and 
RBI's with 128. Senior 
Gutierrez appeared in the 
top four of each pitching 
category and was in 
striking distance of the top 
spot in shutouts and 
earned run average. 

Coach Graf, a Florida 
State graduate, finished 
her fifteenth season as 
head coach for the team, 
compiling a 702-161-4 
record (an .814 winning 
percentage). For the 
second year in a row, Graf 
received the ACC Coach 
of the Year honor. 

Heading into post-seaon 
tournament play, the Lady 
Seminoles ranked #6 in theij 
NCAA poll and #1 in the 
South Region.

The Lady Seminol 
Softball team won their 
second consecutive 
ACC title hy 
rebounding to defeat 
Virginia twice after 
losing to them earlier. 
Playing four straight 
games, the 'Noles 
opened with the 1-0 
loss, the first time they 
had been held scoreless 
in 44 games. The next 
opponent was Georgia 
Tech whom FSU beat 
earlier in the double- 
tournament. They 
eliminated the Lady 
Yellow Jackets, 12-0. 
The Seminoles once 
again faced Virginia, 
and needed to win tw^o 
over them to claim the 
ACC title. 

The first game went 
0-0 for eleven innings. 
Then pinch hitter 
Heather Feltmann hit a 
two-run homer which 
won the game. In the 
championship game 
the team gathered 
many hits, with pitcher 
Toni Gutierrez 
slamming a two-run 
homer to seal the 
victory, 4-2. The win 
was a landmark in that 
it was head coach 
JoAnne Graf's 700th 
win at Florida State. 
Second baseman Lisa 
Davidson was named 
tournament MVP, 
with teammates Susan 
Buttery, Leslie Barton, 
Heather Conway, 
Maria Looper and 
Gutierrez joining her 
on the All-Tournament 
team. Graf was named 
ACC Coach of the Year 
and Shamalene Wilson

Most collegiate softball coaches would 

^Q extremely grateful to have one pitcher 

with an almost perfect record and an 

learned Run Average in the nation's elite. 

A coach would have to thank his or her 

lucky stars il they had another pitcher 

with eleven shutouts and was the ACC 

Player of the Year her 

junior year. But wait, 

there's more! Add to that 

duo another pitcher who 

holds the NCAA record 

lor the nation's longest 

winning streak of 50 

games. Sounds too good to 

be true? Well, Lady 

Seminole softball coach 

JoAnne Graf had a 

pitching staff that other 

coaches dreamed about 

^vith Maria Looper, Toni 

Gutierrez, and Rebecca 


"I w^ouldn't trade these 
three pitchers for any 
three in the country, " 
Coach Graf said. 

When any of "these 
three " were on the mound, 
the softball team racked up 
a 49-6 record before the 
NCAA Regionals. But 
success did not come easy. 
In the 1992 season, Gutierrez and Aase 
split the playing time. Gutierrez threw 
285 1/3 innings, while Aase pitched for 
204 2/3 innings. They racked up a 
remarkable 63-9 record, but it was a 
heavy load for just two of them, so Coach 
Graf searched for another talented

pitcher to Fill the starting rotation. 

Maria Looper, a junior college transfer 
from Crowder College in Missouri, fit the 
bill. The Oklahoma City native was MVP 
of the Junior College Nationals and an 
All-American in that same division. 

The trio lived up to the expectations, 
and then some. Prior to the NCAA 
Regionals, Gutierrez, the lone senior of 
the group, had an .39 ERA (seventh in the 
nation), a 15-4 record, and eleven 
shutouts. Looper posted a 18-1 record, 
the nation's #3 ERA of .29, and thirteen 
shutouts. Aase, a junior, broke the 
NCAA record in 1992 which was 
previously 36 wins without a loss. She 
extended the streak to 50 before losing a 
game in April. She compiled a 16-1 
record, .52 ERA (ranked #10 nationally) 
and pitched twelve shutouts. 

The three of them together set another 
NCAA record: 124 2/3 scoreless innings 
in a row. This streak started Feb. 20 and 
was snapped on March 19. During this 
time they shut out opponents in 1 7 games. 

How did the "terrific trio" feel about 
splitting the pitching duties three ways 
instead of two? "Maria's definitely been 
an asset to the team," Aase said. "Last 
year, it was game after game after game. 
Now, there's more time to concentrate on 
other things." 

Looper said, "The fact that there are 
three of us in the rotation gives us the 
opportunity to rest more, which allows us 
to be fresher for each game." 

And it was no question that the coaches 
were definitely pleased with the results. 
"It's a luxury to have three pitchers that 
good," pitching coach Connie Clark said.

A young but 
experienced troupe took 
to the track for the 
Seminole track and field 
teams. On the men's side, 
the team was led by pole 
vaulter Jefl Bray, 
Jonathon Carter and 
Kevin Ansley on sprints, 
distance runner Trey 
Culbertson, Ryan Carson 
on shotput and discus, and 
Kelsey Nash and Kevin 
Crist on jumps. Head 
coach Terry Long looked 
forward to the talents of 
Philip Riley, a standout ju- 
co transfer, also a football 
signee. Unfortunately, 
Riley battled a injury for 
most of the season, but still 
qualified for the NCAA 

1992 All-Americans 
Sheryl Covington, 
Trinette Johnson and 
Patrice Verdun led the 
women's team. All- 
American Karla Severs 
broke her foot and could 
not compete during most 
of the season. Other 
returners included Cathy 
Erickson and Kim 

Stephens on throws, 
distance runner Tracy 
Pepoon, and Indy Henry 
on jumps. 

The track and field 
season consisted of two 
schedules, an indoor 
schedule from January to 
March and outdoor meets 
from March to June. 
During indoors, the men's 
team placed third at the 
ACC Championships, and 
took four individuals to the 
NCAA's: Bray, Ansley, 
Carter, and Riley. At the 
ACC, Bray equaled his 
conference pole vault 
record of 18 feet, 6.5 
inches, and Kevin Crist 
won the high jump. On 
the women's side, Trinette 
Johnson also set an ACC 
record by leaping 2 1 feet, 2 
inches in the long jump. 
Covington qualified for 
the NCAA's by running 
season-best times in the 55 
and 200 meter dashes. 

Outdoors, the Seminoles 
had strong show^ings with 
many first place finishes. 
At the Florida Relays both 
men's 4x100 and 4x-400 

teams took first, and 
sophomore Felicia Evans 
won the women's triple 
jump. Mark Anderson 
won the shotput at the 
FSU relays. At the Don 
Kirby Invitational in New 
Mexico, Tim Franklin 
won the 400m hurdles 
with a season-best time, 
Covington won two races, 
Peggy Armand won the 
high hurdles and Indy 
Henry took the high jump. 
Johnson captured first in 
long jump at the Run-Tex 
Invitational in Austin, 

As a team, the best 
performance came at the 
Spring Classic held at 
Mike Long Track. Both 
men and women finished 
first, the men with ten first 
place finishes and the 
w^omen with eleven. Both 
teams finished fourth at 
the ACC outdoor 
championships and 
looked forward to sending 
several team members to 
the NCAA and TAC 
championships that took 
place in June.

The men's track and field team was 
blessed with one of the nation's top pole 
\aulters. Jeff Bray had the highest 
collegiate jump m the country two weeks 
Ijefore the NCAA Championships. While 
a Seminole, Bray broke several records 
mcluding the school record and ACC 
record of 18 feet, 6.5 

The two-time All- 
Amencan rubbed elbows 
with some of the best while 
gaining world class status 
as apole vaulter. During a 
competition in Europe, 
Bray roomed with the 
1992 Olympic silver 
medalist from Russia. 
"Europe was a completely 
different experience," said 
Bray, who planned to 
return to Europe later in 
the season. "It gave me 
experience against 
someone who has jumped 
19 feet, so I've learned not 
to worry about other 
people and to concentrate 
on myself. " 

Bray discovered the pole 
vault, one of the most 
difficult track and field 
events, in the sixth grade 
while residing in Texas. They took us 
outside and tried everybody at different 
events," Bray recalled. He jumped seven 
leet in the sixth grade and joined a 
traveling team. In eighth grade his family 
moved to Oklahoma where he met one of 
the most prominent high school track 

feet, 7 inches in high school — his highest 
at the time. 

One positive aspect of the season was 
that he stayed healthy. Injuries plagued 
Bray in the past. A stress fracture caused 
Bray to just miss a spot on the 1992 
Olympic team. " It was really depressing, ' 
Bray said. "I didn't want to talk to 
anybody. 1 just wanted to crawl into a 

Since then Bray bounced back. Tough 
ACC competition spurned him to do 
better. "In big meets I jump the extra few 
inches to win. " Bray handled the pressure 
well and excelled all season because of it. 
At a meet in Gainesville Bray beat out the 
favorite to win nationals in May. That was 
where he had the highest collegiate jump 
of the year. "It's a confidence booster to 
beat a favorite like that, " Bray said. "That 
was one of the highlights of the year." 

Another highlight of Bray's college 
career was a 3.5 GPA. Bray, a physical 
education major, planned to pursue a 
master's degree in Sports Administration 
or Exercise Psychology, hoping to 
become a college coach. "Track has 
taught me responsibility and good work 
habits, " Bray said. His rigorous schedule 
and competition prepared him for life 
after pole vaulting. 

Bray saw himself clearing 19 feet in the 
near future, peaking at the perfect time for 
nationals and TAC's in Oregon where he 
hoped to make the World team. The 1996 
Olympics were also in the future as well. 
Hard work and dedication made Jeff 
Bray one of the nation's best in collegiate 
track and field.

was their first title in two 
years. The team placed 
second at the Florida 
Sou thern/Impena Lakes 
Golf Classic, the site where 
senior Bobby Cochran 
won the individual title. 

Cochran was not the only 
achiever, however. 
Christian Raynor played 
solid with two top ten 
finishes. In the fall, Keith 

Rick was named to the All- 
State team and finished in 
the top five at the Florida 
Intercollegiate. Ryan 
Perna had a second place 
finish at the state 
Intercollegiate, third at 
the Gator Invitational and 
third at the Southeastern. 
Jason Williams struggled 
in the fall, but finished 
ninth at the Queen's 
Harbor Intercollegiate to 
capture his first Top Ten as 
a Seminole. 

The men's golf team 
struggled in the ACC 
Championships, placing 
eighth. But all five starters 
returned, giving them a 
experienced group to 
work Nvith in the future. 

The women's team 
started strong in the fall, 
placing in the top fiive in 
three tournaments. They 
placed fifth in the Lady 
Seminole Invitational, 
fifth in the Duke Fall 
Invitational and third in 
the Beacon Woods/USF 
Invitational. In the Duke 
tournament, the team 
finished only one stroke 
shy of fourth place. 

The spring season 
consisted of five 

tournaments, the ACC 
and NCAA Tournaments. 
In the Lady Gator 
Invitational the team 
placed fifth. Ranked #24 
in the nation, they headed 
to California for the San 
Jose State /Jostens 
Invitational, where they 
placed eighth. The team 
brought home second 
place from the LSU/ 
Fairwood Invitational, 
and third from the Ryder/ 
Florida Golf 
Championships held in 
Miami. Junior Maria 
Castelucci had the low 
score for the team, 
finishing fourth. In the 
ACC Championships, the 
Lady Seminoles finished 
fourth. Kelly Pittman 
placed sixth individually. 

To receive an bid to the 
NCAA Tournament, a 
team had to finish the 
season as one of the top 
eight teams in their region. 
The Lady Seminoles 
competed in the NCAA 
East Regional 
Championships in mid- 
May and their 
performance there would 
indicate if they moved on 
to the national finals.

Cochran Captured 

From Cordova, 
Tennessee, Bobby 
Cochran came to 
Florida State and made 
quite an impact on the 
men's golf team. In the 
spring, he captured his 
first career victory at 
the Florida Southern/ 
ImperiaLakes Golf 
Classic in Lakeland. It 
was the first individual 
title won by a Seminole 
since 1989. Cochran 
shot a 68-69-70, three 
strokes below the 
second place finisher. 
The men's team 
captured second place 
in that tournament. 

But Cochran, a 
senior finance major, 
was not a one- 
tournament wonder. 
He played consistently 
and finished high all 
season long. In the fall, 
he placed tenth at the 
Dixie Intercollegiate 
and seventh at the 
Intercollegiate. He 
placed third in the 
Classic and broke a 
course record along the 
way. In the second 
round ol that 
tournament, he shot a 
65, which was a second 
round low for the 
Classic. He finished 
ninth at the 
Invitational, where 
Florida State took 
home the team title. 
Cochran also finished 
eighteenth at the ACC 
Championships, the 
highest finish for a

santry on the 

Canadian-born golfer 
both in Canada and 

As a young child, senior Marie-Josee' 
Rouleau could never have imagined 
herself as a Florida State golfer or the 
winner of the 1992 Canadian Amateur 
National Championship. 

The Canadian-born goUer scored 77) on 
each of her first three rounds, then shot 
four consecutive birdies to score a course 
record 68 and took the 
win. That win gave 
Rouleau the opportunity 
to represent British 
Columbia, Canada in the 
World Amateur Team 
Championship. The 
Canadian team placed 
tenth in that tournament. 
Rouleau said of the 
experience, "It was a great 
feeling to represent my 

Rouleau also received the 
Score Award, given to the 
best amateur golfer in 

Until the age of thirteen 
when she began to become 
interested in golf, she only 
envisioned her future as a 
swimmer because that was 
her sport at that age. Her 
parents had a lot to do with 
Rouleau's sudden interest 
in golf, and living on a golf 
course provided an excellent opportunity 
to learn and develop the sport. 

The times changed from her days as a 
curiousyoung girl eager to try a new sport 
into days having an Amateur National 
Championship under her belt. Rouleau, a 

dhoivcajcd her ability 
in the United Stated 

marketing major, transferred to Florida 
State from Lamar University in Texas. 
She transferred to FSU to be closer to her 
parents, who have a home in Florida, and 
because she felt this school had high 
standards both in athletics and 
academics. She herself exemplified those 
standards, as she was named to the All- 
ACC golf team. 

"Florida State has one of the nicest 
school spirits that I've seen around," 
Rouleau said. 

Time on the golf course for her was not 
spent just working on the mechanics of 
her swing, it is a time when she can 
"escape from everyday problems, " and 
can spend time thinking of self-set goals. 
Though she approaches golf with a 
relaxed attitude, her ability and 
leadership on the golf team is evident. 
Leaderhship to Rouleau is not telling 
someone what to do, but rather setting an 
example. "My teammates look up to me 
and respect me," Rouleau said. 

Women's golf coach Debbie Miles- 
Dillman approaches golf with the same 
attitude as Rouleau by being more of an 
emotional supporter than a technical 
coach. This was a positive aspect of their 
relationship and was what influenced 
Rouleau to be that type of leader. 

Marie-Josee Rouleau, a senior, 
planned to keep golfing as an amateur and 
eventually join the professional ranks. 
After graduation, she also planned to 
spend time with her boyfriend of two 
years, Stephen Noteboom. Noteboom, 
from the Netherlands, graduated from 
Florida State the year before and was 
competing on the professional tennis tour.

Both men's and women's 
tennis teams faced stiff 
competition, in and out oi 
the conference, and once 
again had successful 

The outlook for the Lady 
Seminole tennis team could 
only have been described 
as bright. With one senior, 
a core group of juniors, and 
a talented crop of 
freshman, head coach Alice 
Reen was understandably 
optimistic about the 

Juniors Audra Brannon 
and Laura Randmaa 
excelled in the fall, earning 
regional and national 
rankings both individually 
and as a doubles team. 

In the spring, the Lady 
Seminoles compiled a 12-8 
record, 5-2 in the ACC. 
They faced eight Top 25 
teams and defeated two. 
North Carolina and 
Virginia. Juniors 
Brannon, Randmaa, 
Jenny Graf, and Jennifer 
Hyde brought the most 
experience to the team. 
Freshmen Bresha Byrd 
and Eike Juul contributed 
at the #3-#6 singles spots. 
The #1 doubles team of 

compiled a 15-3 record, 
while the #2 team of Graf/ 
Hyde went 1 1-5. 

As in the fall, Audra 
Brannon emerged as the 
player to beat on the 
Florida State tennis 
circuit. During the season 
she was 61st in the 
Intercollegiate Tennis 
Association (ITA) 
rankings. She also won 
the ITA Regional Arthur 
Ashe award based on 
sportsmanship and 

The men's tennis team 
also had a core group of 
talented athletes 
returning. Junior Ken 
McKenzie, sophomore 
Brian Stanton, and lone 
senior Rick Jacob played 
the #l-#3 singles spots 
and also the #1-2 doubles 
teams along \v i t h 
freshman Jason White. 

The men's started the 
fall with a bang at the 
Seminole Fall Classic. 
McKenzie w^on the singles 
competition, while 
Stanton and Jacob took 
the doubles title. 

During spring, the 
men's team won the first 

SIX matches and finished 
16-7, 6-2 in the ACC. They 
defeated two ranked 
opponents — Clemson and 
Miami. In addition to the 
returners, junior Dean 
Erlich, transfer Drew 
Kirkley and Art Martinez, 
and freshmen White, 
Adam Baron, and Scott 
Schuhriemann all saw 
playing time in singles and 
doubles matches. 

Heading into the ACC 
Championships, both 
men's and women's teams 
were seeded third, and 
both followed the same 
route through the 
tournament. The men 
defeated Clemson in the 
first round 5-2, while the 
women edged UNC 5-4. 
The men then lost to the #2 
UNC in the semifinals, 
while the women's 
competition ended with 
Clemson. Both teams 
finished third as expected. 

Three Seminoles made 
the All-ACC team: Audra 
Brannon, Laura 
Randmaa, and Brian 
Stanton. Brannon 
continued her season with 
a berth in the NCAA 
Championships in May.

The popularity and 
talent level of the tennis 
program at Florida 
State rose significantly S 
within the past few 
years. To support that 
growth, the tennis 
teams needed bigger 
and better facilities. 
Construction started on 
a new state-of-the-art 
tennis center to house 
both the men's and 
women's teams. The 
center featured 12 
lighted courts, a 1,300 
seat stadium, coaches' 
offices and locker 

"It will probably be 
the most lunctional 
facility in the country 
because it was designed 
for collegiate tennis, " 
men's coach Dave 
Barron said. 

The facility was 
named the Scott 
Speicher Tennis 
Center. Lieutenant 
Commander Michael 
Scott Speicher was the 
first American killed in 
Operation Desert 
Storm. Since he 
graduated from Florida 
State, the University 
chose to honor and 
remember Speicher by 
naming the new tennis 
facilities after him. 

Construction on the 
center was not 
completed until the 
summer. So the tennis

Both the men's and women's tennis 
teams racked up the honors on the court 
as well as off. They came up big at the 
second annual Golden Torch Gala held in 
November. The black tie affair honored 
Seminole athletes who maintained high 
grades while participating in varsity 
athletics. The highlights of the evening's 
awards presentation were 
the awards lor the 
Outstanding Scholar- 
Athletes of the Year. 
Tennis players Amy 
Hanby and Hiro Takata 
took the Gala's top honors 
with the highest male and 
female GPA's among 350 

W"" "* athletes. Each of the tennis 

teams boasted the highest 
GPA's of all the 
university's sports teams 
with the women s GPA 
being a 3.06 and the men's 
a 3.01. The men's team 
had a tradition to uphold. 
It was the second time they 
had earned this 
prestigious honor in as 
many years. They also had 
the highest GPA for four 
years prior to the Gala. 

Hanby and Takata both 
led their teams by 
example. Hanby's 
teammates voted her to receive the 110 
Percent award for her commitment and 
determination to her team and the sport. 
She also excelled in Florida State's

For the tennis program, academics 
were the priority. School came first. 
Tennis second. Women's tennis coach 
Alice Reen said, "One of the first priorities 
I try to instill when an athlete comes to 
FSU is the need to strive for academic 
excellence. Their accomplishments in the 
classroom are a genuine concern for me 
and a responsibility that I gladly accept. " 
She had some help. Seminole athletes 
were the beneficiaries of one of the 
nation's premier academic support 
systems. A lull time staff assisted 
incoming student-athletes and helped 
them adjust to college life. They 
continued to aid them throughout their 
academic careers. In addition to the 
support staff, all athletes had access to a 
study hall very conducive to learning. 
Free tutors were also available. 

Men's tennis coach Dave Barron was 
proud of his team's accomplishments on 
and off the court. He believed there was 
a strong correlation between tennis and 
other aspects of student life. If things are 
going bad off the court it will affect the 
athlete's performance. "It's pretty 
evident that these guys take their 
academics just as serious as their 
athletics, " he said. "It's something I want 
to see accomplished by these student- 
athletes year in and year out — success in 
their class work. " 

""Academics has always been our 
highest team goal," Coach Reen said. 
Both men's and women's tennis teams' 
perseverance showed how a group could 
be the epitome of both scholars and

What did students do 
during their free time to 
have fun? There were 
many answers to that 
question. But no matter 
how athletically skilled or 
klutzy students may have 
been, they could always 
get involved in intramural 

In the fall, students 
competed in flag tootball, 
with the Players taking the 
all-campus championship. 
In volleyball, lOE 
captured the crown. The 
team Body Count brought 
home the soccer title, and 
Legal Noles won the 
women's soccer 
championship. In field 
goal kicking, both Sean 
Scheller and Greg 
Gendron kicked 55 yards 
and tied for the win. 

On the courts, Steve 
Huber and Jennifer 
Gedeon took the 
individual advanced tennis 
titles, with ZTA winning 
the sorority division. In 
racquetball Todd Peterson 
and Angie Lund won the 
men's and women's titles. 
OZK won the Gold 
fraternity division, and 
AXA won the Garnet 


On a smaller court, 
Chinghu Tseng won men's 
table tennis and Chen 
Yuan won women's. ZOE 
won over all fraternities. 

In bowling, Melissa 
Martin took the women's 
title, with Steven Hoeft 
capturing the men's. 
Wrestling saw OK4^ win 
the Gold and ZO taking the 
Garnet division. The 
Reservation Run was a 
popular IM event and 
John De Grummond won 
the annual race. 

The intramurals 
schedule for spring was 
just as busy as fall. The 
Hoopsters took the all- 
campus championship in 
basketball and the Lemon 
Shots won the women's 
title. In sand volleyball, 
FIJI won the fraternity 
division, KKF won the 
sorority division. Dig This 
won the women's 
competition, and Michael 
Hurley and A. Espino 
spiked their way to the all- 
campus championship. 

A sport that involved a 
lot of students was softball. 
Cawthon Supporters won 
the residence hall division, 

with the Bat Girls taking 
the women's title. ATQ 
\vas the all-campus 

In co-rec innertube 
water polo, a team made up 
of members from the FSU 
Circus won overall. 
Allison Nygren won the 
loul shooting contest for 
the women, with a seven- 
way tie occurring for the 
men. Dean Reilly took 
first place in squash. In 
putt-putt golf, Rob 
Dawson and XQ were the 
big winners. 

Swimming and track and

many events, but ZOE and 
ZX were the fraternity 
winners, and AXQ 
emerged as sorority

only 5 "5 and Pat 
Kennedy wasn't exactly 
beating down your 
door? Or maybe sand 
volleyball was your 
sport but Sinjin Smith 
had not discovered you 
on the beaches yet? 
Most likely, you were 
just a student who 
enjoyed sports and 
wanted to get involved. 
The best and most 
popular -way to do that 
was through intramural 
sports, commonly 
known as "IM". 

A wide variety of 
sports were offered 
throughout the entire 
year, even during the 
summer. If there was a 
sport not offered by the 
IM program, all a 
student had to do was 
let them know about it. 
The intramurals staff 
encouraged new ideas.

buzzer to win $10,000 in shooting content 

when Kyle Biggerstaff arrived at the 
Civic Center for the Florida State-Duke 
basketball game on Jan. 24, he did not 
realize that he would leave $ 1 0,000 richer. 
Biggerstaff also did not know it would be 
so easy to get a chance at w^inning the 

"I went to a table in the concourse and 
filled out a card that was 
put into a box. Two names 
were picked out of it and 
mine was one of them," 
Biggerstaff said. 

The graduate student 
had signed up for a 
halftime contest, and those 
whose names were drawn 
had the opportunity to win 
$10,000 by completing a 
layup, a free throw, a three 
point shot and a shot from 
midcourt in 30 seconds. 
Quite a task for someone 
who was "sweating and 
nervous" as he descended 
the steps to the court. 

"But as soon as I got the 
ball in my hands I calmed 
down. When I let go of the 
ball (for the halfcourt 
shot), it looked like it was 
going in but then the 
buzzer w^ent off," 
Biggerstaff said. 
How^ever, the shot counted and 
Biggerstaff was given the choice of 
$10,000 or a Ford Mustang. Although he 
considered taking the car, his wife 
Rachel, encouraged him to accept the 
money instead. 

"I'm buying a computer and we're 
putting the rest in the bank, " Biggerstaff 

The money was a pleasant surprise to 
Biggerstaff who pursued a doctorate in 
exercise physiology and wanted to 
become a college professor. For his 
assistantship he ran a fitness program 
with the Tallahassee Fire Department 
and received a small salary and tuition 

This basketball game hosted the second 
largest crowd in the college's history. 
Although Biggerstaff had played before 
an audience as a member of an intramural 
team. The Sprockets, he had never 
performed in front of 13,333 people. 

"I'd never been in front of so many 
screaming people. Immediately after I'd 
made the shot, I felt such a rush," 
Biggerstaff said. 

The audience was also stunned by the 
night's events. They were excited about 
the Seminoles' lead over the Blue Devils 
as well as their fellow student's 

"Everyone was screaming and out of 
control. My friends and I couldn't believe 
we just w^atched this guy win $1 0,000. 
The buzzer went off and he ran around 
the court waving his arms. It was 
incredible, " junior Michelle Pinto said. 

Biggerstaff received some teasing from 
his Sprocket teammates but all in fun. 
They wanted him to shoot from midcourt 
more often. But he was the first to admit 
that the shot was "definitely luck. " 

"The team was real excited for me. 
NoAV they want me to take them all out, " 
Biggerstaff said.

LLI LiJC seemed to be the word for the year for the 
University's Greek system. Not wanting to remain stagnant, 
Greeks made necessary changes to improve their image from 
previous semesters. 

The sorority rush program ^vas hit the hardest with new 
rules and requirements. Budgets were hmited, skits and 
outside decorations were downplayed and lawn routines were 
eliminated to encourage members to interact more with the 
rushees. Sorority pledge programs also refocused; some 
limited pledging programs while others revised officer titles, 
job descriptions and by-laws. 

Pan Greek hosted the most extensive Extravaganza to 
date, raised funds to attend the Black Leadership Conference 
and earned several stepping competition titles. 

The Loop Spring Challenge offered an outlet for Greeks 
to come together philanthropically. Greeks raised over $60,000 
for each of their philanthropies. Sigma Chi recognized the 
tremendous impact AIDS had on this generation and changed 
their philanthropy to benefit AIDS education and support. 

The year began with a shift in fraternity housing for 
various reasons and it ended on the same note. Change seemed 
to serve as a ne^v order of Inunnejj.

Rush not only served as an opportunity for fraternities and 
sororities to seek out new members. It was also the chance tor students 
as a whole to discover what the Greek system was all about. 

Fraternity rush was a week long event that began with an 
information meeting and was followed by open parties the remainder of 
the week. Each fraternity held parties at their respective houses which 
were open to all students. These parties gave perspectives a chance to 
see what each fraternity had to offer and decided which, if any, best met 
their needs. One of the main purposes of a rush party was to provide 
the perspectives with as much information about the fraternity as 

Fraternities enticed the student population as a whole to attend 
these rush parties. Each competed to have the best entertainment and 
food offerings for the evening by booking local bands or the Golden 
Girls to perform and having food donated from local establishments. 

During the week fraternities began giving out bids, which were 
invitations to join the fraternity. When a bid was received, it did not 
mean that perspective was obligated to join that fraternity, it was merely 
an invitation. Fraternity rush officially ended on Saturday. 

"Receiving a bid is the first step in becoming a full fledged 
member of a fraternity," Lambda Chi Alpha brother Mike Masterman- 
Smith said. 

While fraternity rush was considered to be an informal rush, 
sorority rush was just the opposite. Formal sorority rush was much 
more structured and to participate, one had to register and pay a rush 
fee. Sorority rush was also a week long process but varied a great deal 
from fraternity rush. 

Like fraternity rush, sorority rush began with an information 
meeting on Sunday. Those participating were split into rush groups and 
assigned to a Rho Chi. I^o Chis were preselected members of sororities 
who agreed to disassociate themselves for the entire week of rush and 
serve as unbiased counselors to the rushees. 

On Monday and Tuesday, rushees visited each sorority house 
for ice water socials. They \vere called ice w^aters because the sororities 
served ice water to combat Tallahassee's sweltering August heat while 
they gave the rush groups general information about their individual 
sorority. At the conclusion of the day, rushees returned to their rush 

(Continued on page 164)

groups and prioritized which houses they wanted to return to. 

"Ice waters were very overwhelming. You try to remember everyone's 
name and try to decide in a very short amount ot time it that is a house you want to 
return to, " fall rushee Laura Koeler said. 

On Wednesday and Thursday, each rushee visited no more than nine of the 
16 sororities and was given a tour of each house along with an information sheet 
which outlined in detail the financial obligations of sorority membership. After the 
last tour of the day, rushees returned to their rush groups and once again prioritized 
the sororities. 

On Friday, rushees attended a maximum of five sororities. This gave the 
rushees more time to ask questions and meet individual members. On this day, skits 
were performed to better educate the rushees about the sorority. At the conclusion 
of the day, rushees returned to their rush groups to prioritize their choices once again. 

"Skit day was very exciting because it gave us a much clearer perception of 
what the sororities were really like, " rushee Sara Nieporent said. 

Through a mutual selection process, rushees focused on no more than three 
sororities by Saturday. Preferential parties gave an opportunity for more one-on-one 
interaction and these parties were the most important because here w^as where the 
final choices regarding membership were made. Sororities were only allowed to 
extend a certain number of bids. 

Final selection took place in Moore Auditorium. Rushees' choices -were 
filled out in complete silence and it was Sunday before they found out which sorority 
selected them to join. With card in hand, each girl went to her new home and was 
greeted by her sisters.

When the University's Interfraternity Council implemented 
"dry" rush (non-alcoholic) in 1986, t\\e Animal Hoiu<e image ol Greeks 
began to lade. This past year's IFC and Panhellenic Association 
developed new rules and ideas to increase student involvement and 
retention in upcoming rushes. 

One of these brainstorms resulted a new organization called 
Greek Ambassadors. The new^ troupe of Ambassadors were Greeks 
who visited high school students in their hometowns in May and 
informed prospective freshmen about the advantages of belonging to a 
Greek organization. They educated students about fraternities and 
sororities without affiliating themselves with any particular Greek 
house in order to benefit the entire system. 

"One of my objectives and IPC's and Panhellenic s objectives 
is to sell the Greek system as a whole to up-and-coming freshmen, " Vice 
President of Rush Hamlet Yousit said. 

Other ideas generated were designed as fun events to appeal 
to students on a one-on-one basis. A Greek barbecue was planned at 
the Seminole Reservation which allowed non-Greeks to learn about the 
system while they mingled with fraternity and sorority members. 

A parent's guide for the Greek system was put into an 
educational flyer for the parents of Greek hopefuls which explained the 
positive aspects of joining a fraternal organization such as community 
service, philanthropy, leadership and friendship. 

"There are a lot of benefits other than partying, " Yousif said. 

A Union Blitz was another idea that started during Greek 
Week and was planned for summer orientation students. Greeks who 
participated in the Blitz last Spring brought brochures, pictures and 
representatives to tables in the Union and helped students learn the 
differences and similarities between the many Greek houses. 

Rush seminars given by the IFC and Executive Council were 
optional, but suggested, to rushees. They were scheduled for each 


Rush Rules 167 


(Continued from page 168) 

Monday and Wednesday of Summer Orientation sessions and informational 
seminars on the Monday night of fraternity rush and the night before sorority rush. 

Optional bus rides to all of the fraternity houses was also suggested for 
exposure to many different chapters on campus. IFC rush was traditionally reliant 
on word-of-mouth recruitment which pigeonholed certain houses over others. 
Conversely, Panhellenic rush was held in a formal style which required rushing 
women to visit all of the sorority houses. 

Restrictions on rush were devised for informal fraternity rush parties to 
give them similar structure within IFC guidelines. Greeks were not allowed to rush 
with kegs of beer on the premises and they could not extend a bid to a Tallahassee 
Community College student unless he had already taken six credit hours at the 
University and was planning to enroll in the next semester. 

Sororities also adopted certain rules that the National Panhellenic 
Association enforced to decrease the number of women who dropped out of rush 
before the end of the \A'eek. 

During Fall rush, sororities were not allowed to perform lawn routines as 
they had in the past, because Panhellenic wanted to encourage greater emphasis on 
conversation between Greeks and rushees. Skits and outside decorations were also 
downplayed in this same fashion when performances on stage became second fiddle 
to interaction with potential sisters. 

Panhellenic decided to limit rush budgets to the average of every house's 
previous rush budgets from the year before. The total limit sororities were allowed 
to spend on rush paraphernalia was $5000, according to Rush Chairman Donna 

"We are also getting away from the uniform dress that each sorority wears 
and we're encouraging everyone to get to know each other better, " Cole said. 


Gamma Phi Beta's annual 
philanthropy was Gainina Phi Laugh 
Off, a stand up comedy show. The

what did one think ot when girls were seen in trilly 
dresses with bows in their hair, receiving big baskets filled ^vith 
useless gilts, running around campus in their pajamas or being 
led blindtolded to a Iraternity house? Sorority pledges? Many 
sororities attempted to abandon that image by altering their 
pledge programs. 

Alpha Chi Omega was one sorority that initiated a new^ 
program because of interest from national headquarters. It 
w^as developed to express equality among members with a 
theme of "Woman to Woman." 

"There were two main benefits, that of emphasizing the 
idea of membership lasting a lifetime and the equality of the 
chapter as a whole," Vice President of Education Liz Rios said. 
"Everyone is responsible for everything. Duties are not left up 
to just one person." 

Sororities tried to take the focus away from some of the 
negatives associated with pledging, such as gifts and hazing, by 
shifting the emphasis to more positive areas such as sisterhood 
and membership development. Pledges were called "new^ 
members," former pledge educators were now Vice Presidents 
of Education and initiation dates \vere moved up. Some "new^ 
members" were even allowed to attend chapter meetings, 
although the extent of participation in ritual ceremonies varied. 

Many of the programs carried over to other areas in the 
sorority besides the pledge programs. Officers' titles were 
changed, job descriptions were altered, different areas were 
given greater or lesser attention and chapter by-laws were 

Some sororities chose not to alter their programs or did 
so to a lesser degree.

"We're going to watch other's progress. We want to be cautious, " 
Kappa Kappa Gamma Pledge Educator Beth Corcoran said. 

Kappa Kappa Gamma had a shortened program of ten weeks but 
waited until the Spring semester to initiate new members to ensure grade 
point averages. Corcoran said scholarship was a large part ol their 

Pi Beta Phi also did not make major changes to their program. 

"I didn't mind not having a new program and it didn't affect my 
decision when going through rush, " Fall pledge class member Kandi Kelly 
said. "I liked the pace and wasn't overwhelmed. " 

Older sisters who had gone through the older programs sometimes 
had a difficult time adjusting. The often heard comment was "We had it so 
much harder when I was a pledge... " 

"Many of the older members had trouble dealing with change but 
some of what was altered was due to the University hazing policies and not 
individual chapters and therefore they would have changed regardless, " 
Jennifer Peterson, a four-year member of Alpha Chi Omega, said.

The lights dimmed and the glass doors of the Union Ballroom 
rattled from the intensity of the bass as unusual sounds and calls were 
heard throughout the party, from the deep voices bellowing "Blue-Phi" 
to the squeaking "Skeeweet" of high pitched voices. Within no time, 
line stepping by the fraternities and sororities began. 

"This was more than just a party," Pan Greek Advisor Carol 
Ross said. "Pan Greek worked diligently to raise funds to go to an 
important leadership conference at Indiana University." 

The Black Greek Leadership Conference was the event that 
Pan Greek raised a total of $6700 to attend. The conference was 
developed in 1987 on the campus of Central Missouri State University 
with the primary purpose of allo\ving African- American Greeks to have 
the opportunity to organize and implement a conference addressing 
issues that faced them on predominantly white university campuses. 

The weekend of Oct. 30 educated Pan Greek members on their 
organizations' dedication to brother and sisterhood, scholarship and 
service. They also had workshops and speakers on the retention of 
minority students at predominantly white institutions by focusing on 
academic achievement and developing leadership potential. The 
conference was not based on fraternity and sorority life alone but also 
focused on time and risk management and values. 

"Pan Greek learned many different things at the conference 
and was able to get ideas from Greeks at different schools. As a result 
they implemented new programs here at Florida State and started a line 
of communication with their counterparts at different institutions, " Pan 
Greek President Annesia Ogarro said. 

Along with their personal fundraisers, Pan Greek went to the 
Student Government Association to ask for funding. They received 
additional money to put with w^hat they had been raising since the 
summer before the conference. 

There was a force behind each Pan Greek member w^ho 
w^orked the doors, did the paperwork, passed out flyers and cleaned up 
after the party. This force helped them to make enough money to 
embark upon an educational and enlightening conference. 

"The conference lived up to its' slogan 'Dedicated To The 
Future'," Ross said. "It was w^orth every dime, drop ofsweat and step."

Telephones rang, doors banged shut, there was laughter and 
yelling in the hall\vays and everyone waited lor an available shower. 
That w^as the life for the hundreds of University students who lived in 
sorority and fraternity housing. 

Besides being unique from students who lived in dorms and 
apartments, some Greeks had the novel aspect of sleeping porches. A 
sleeping porch was a designated room in a sorority house Filled only with 
beds which was kept quiet and dark at all times. The girls slept there 
rather than in their actual rooms. The purpose behind the sleeping 
porches was to provide more convenience regarding studying and 
getting prepared for school and work. 

Not all houses utilized sleeping porches. 

"My biggest sacrifice when I moved in the house was the loss 
of privacy," Alpha Chi Omega member Tracey Finley said. 

By sleeping in a separate room, roommates were not disturbed 
by lights, blowdryers or the normal early morning hustle. Sleeping 
porches not only made it easier for people to sleep, they also allowed for 
more space in the bedrooms. Most rooms in the houses with sleeping 
porches were for three girls which left room for desks, tables, shelves 
and televisions. This also permitted more members to live in the house 
and provided for better academic environments. Members could stay 
up late to study for an important test without disturbing their 

Most sorority members who experienced sleeping porches 
enjoyed them. 

"As soon as you go in, you know you're going to sleep. It's a 
placeyou can always sleep, no matter what time it is, " Delta Delta Delta 
member Stacey Hypes said. 

The girls said the sleeping porches provided the perfect 
sleeping conditions. The temperature was just right, there were no 
lights and the only sound allowed was alarm clocks.

"You have to get used to it. You learn to tune intoyour own and 
don't hear the others after awhile, " Sigma Kappa Amy Maynard said. 

In the past, Alpha Gamma Delta sorority tried the different 
concept of a wake-up board. One person set an alarm and each sister 
was successively responsible for waking up the next sister at the posted 


Sleeping Porches 177

time. When this did not work out, members were allowed individual clocks with the 
rule of no snooze alarms. 

"The only disadvantage now is people who snore or talk in their sleep, " 
Alpha Gamma Delta member Julie Dikes said. 

Sorority members said there was not a problem when people were sick 
either. Dikes said at her house the girls also had day beds in their room. 

"People usually slept there when they were sick so as not to disturb others 
with coughs and sneezes," Dikes said. 

Although Maynard said she had not really thought about the safety factor 
of all the girls sleeping in one area, Dikes cited an instance when the house alarm went 

"We were able to pinpoint the cause easily because the majority of the girls 
were all located in the same area," Dikes said. 

Dikes said the sleeping porches were somewhat of a strange concept. Most 
girls who went through sorority rush had just come from living at home. The idea of 
a dorm room was odd enough, let alone that of 15 or 20 girls sleeping on bunk beds 
in one room of a sorority house. 

"The idea was difficult to explain during rush but after living in a dorm, I 
liked them better," Dikes said. 

"My favorite part of the sleeping porches is thatyou don't have to makeyour 
bed! " Maynard said. 

"It definitely is different but I like living in the house better because, one, it's 
the chance of a lifetime. Two, it's convenient for dinner, meetings, etc. and three, and 
most important, it's right in the middle of everything. There's never a dull moment, ' 
Alpha Chi Omega senior Jennifer Peterson said.

Big brothers and big sisters, a crucial part of the 
Greek system, have been useful in their service as a liaison 
between the new member and the organization. They made 
the organization more personal and played a vital role in the 
new^ members achievement of their goal of eventual 

The most profound effects, how^ever, were felt in 
the personal relationships fostered as the big brothers and 
sisters helped their little siblings overcome the adversity 
that faced them and find their own niche within the 

"My big sister is a role model to me. She has 
always been there for me. When I was a pledge, I w^as shy 
and overwhelmed by the sorority and she alw^ays made me 
feel at home," newly initiated Zeta Tau Alpha sister Nicki 
Abbott said. 

In most Greek organizations, the selection process 
was by mutual agreement. Soon after rush, each member 
and pledge submitted their top two or three preferences 
and the pledge trainer pair them up as closely as possible to 
the original choices.

"My little brother Drew is awesome. I had an idea of choosing 
him during rush but after a lew weeks into the semester, he was 
definitely my choice, " Lambda Chi Alpha brother Wes Grant said. 

Pledges and associated members typically received their big 
brothers or sisters in some sort ol ritual, the formality ol which varied 
from house to house. In some organizations, this milestone was reached 
soon after formally pledging, while in others it was one ot the last steps 
on the road to initiation. 

"We have what are called 'Heart Sisters,' which are mutually 
chosen at the beginning ot the semester. These are the hrst sisters we 
really get to know. At the end of the semester we choose our big sisters 
and usually they are one of our heart sisters, " Zeta Tau Alpha April 
Carey said. 

Regardless of how or when they were selected, big brothers and 
big sisters did their best to see to the initiation of the new members and 
in doing so played their part in keeping the Greek system moving 
forward and growing with the times.

When Spring brought flowers, birds and warm weather to 
campus, it also brought the Spring Challenge. The Spring Challenge 
was a contest held betw^een all the registered student organizations, 
fraternities and sororities. It was a competition to raise the most money 
for the organization's chosen philanthropy. Coupons were run in the 
campus weekly /'iSF^ic and were also available at The Loop restaurant. 
For each coupon redeemed , the restaurant donated twenty-five cents to 
the organization's philanthropy. 

The idea originated at Loop restaurants in Jacksonville, 
Florida, but was traditionally held between employees at different 
locations. Since there was only one Loop restaurant in Tallahassee, a 
college oriented contest was developed. 

The stakes increased the final week of the Challenge giving 
participants a chance to increase their earnings. The redemption value 
was raised to thirty cents per coupon. They also offered a special 
drawing of two tickets to the Mainstage presentation of Caimlle and 
dinner for two. 

Grand prize went to Delta Gamma sorority which earned %S7) 
toward its philanthropy. Delta Gamma also received a plaque and a 
pizza party worth $100. Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity won a 
randomly drawn pizza party worth up to $250. Alpha Phi Omega was 
ranked in the top five for most of the five weeks the contest ran. 

"Even though we did not win, I had lun having lunch with my 
friends and trying to raise money for our philanthropy, " Christine 
Hodge, Zeta Tau Alpha member, said. 

Special recognition went to Alpha Chi Omega and Kappa 
Alpha Theta, both received $ 1 00 pizza parties and money towards their 

"There was almost a tie so we felt the need to recognize the other 
two, " Jennifer Huston, owner of The Loop, said. 

"I thought the contest went w^ell but I felt the response would 
gave been greater if the prizes were bigger, " General Manager Matt 
Hutton said.

October 24 marked the date of Pan Greek's largest campus 
function, the Extravaganza. The Extrav was an annual step show 
hosted by the members ot Pan Greek that took place each fall semester. 
Stepping was a mixture ol African and modern street dance. The seven 
Pan Greek organizations put in months of preparation tor the event and 
also spent money on props and costumes to enhance the aesthetic value 
of the show. 

"All the organizations take this competition very seriously. 
They make a lot of sacrifices and become emotional wrecks during this 
time, " Pan Greek Advisor Carol Ross said. 

The Extrav was lull of drama from the emotional to the 
theatrical portions of the show. The organizations who performed were 
Sigma Gamma Rho sorority. Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity. Alpha Kappa 
Alpha sorority. Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, Phi Beta Sigma fraternity 
and Delta Sigma Theta sorority. Unfortunately because of a last minute 
illness, the members of Zeta Phi Beta sorority were unable to perform. 

"This was very upsetting because we won last year, I was 
looking forward to defending our title, " ZOB Vice President Annesia 
O'garro said. 

This was no regular Extrav; there were steppers with gold 
boots, diamonds that lit up, hooded women with their own D.J. and 
canes that glowed in the dark. It was the compilation of songs, music 
and dance that made the Extrav such a spectacle. 

"This was one of the most exciting sho^vs I have ever seen," 
sophomore Yolonda Reed said. 

At the end of the show there were two winners, AZ0 and 
KA4^. The Extrav raised over $5,000 for the Pan Greek Council which 
was used to help members attend the Black Greek Leadership 

"The extravaganza serves not only as a fundraiser for Pan 
Greek but it gives each organization a chance to celebrate the pride and 
love they have for their organization. All the groups who performed in 
the show are winners and all should be commended for their hard work 
and dedication, " Ross said.

Remember that game where everyone ran around a circle of chairs minus 
one until the music stopped? Then everyone tried to grab the nearest available seat. 
That was similar to what happened on fraternity row during one short summer. 
Numerous Iraternities relocated to ditterent houses, some underwent reconstruction 
and others packed up and moved oH campus. 

Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Kappa Alpha, Alpha Tau Omega, Delta Tau Delta, 
Sigma Nu and Phi Kappa Tau all had long term leases from the University. 

"In the past, the University was responsible for maintaining the fraternity 
houses that they owned. Recently, they have neglected to do that. For a while, the 
hre marshall overlooked the violations but alter a while they put pressure on the 
University to do something about it," ZAE house manager Ted Stout said. 

Many ol them were required to make renovations in order to bring their 
houses, or rather the University's houses, up to current safety codes. 

"Basically, the University is telling us that we have to invest $300,000, 
mostly to replace wiring and plumbing, in order to be able to rent the property, " Stout 

Theta Chi had a University owned house but moved to an extensively 
renovated house on West Pensacola Street which was owned by the fraternity's 
alumni. Beta Theta Pi moved into the house that was occupied by Delta Chi house 
on West College Avenue while Delta Sigma Phi moved into the house that had been 
occupied by Zeta Beta Tau. Zeta Beta Tau moved next door and AX relocated down 
the street. 

Sigma Chi was temporarily located at the former Sigma Delta Tau sorority 
house next to the XX house on West College Avenue. While most of the houses on 
College Avenue were privately rented, the ZAT house was owned by the state of 

After only two short semesters, it seemed as though changes were in order 
once again. Although Chi Phi owned its house, the fraternity allowed ZAE to lease 
Irom them. Chi Phi moved Irom their location on West Pensacola Street into their 
former house on West College Avenue which had been occupied by AZO. Chi Phi 
wanted to be temporarily located on West College Avenue to be closer to the action 
during rush week. 

"It is very difficult for a smaller fraternity like Chi Phi to rush out of our 
current location. We want to spend some time back on fraternity row' and then 
decide what we want to do about housing for the long term, ' XO president Stuart 
Cohen said. 

Lambda Chi Alpha, Phi Sigma Kappa, Phi Gamma Delta, Sigma Pi, Pi 
Kappa Phi and Kappa Sigma also owned their own houses but remained stationary.

The fourth annual Zeta Tau Alpha AIDS 
Forum was open to all campus organizations and 
students, including the entire Greek system. The 
turn-out on Oct. 6 was great, as many students 
showed up with questions and an eagerness to learn 
about the AIDS virus. 

"I was overwhelmed that fraternities and 
sororities alike were there. People came on their 
own will, not out of obligation, and everyone 
seemed to learn something new. It was a very 
positive step in a campus point of view to have so 
many young people there. Hopefully everyone who 
attended got something out of it," ZTA member 
Christine Merritt said. 

The two hour meeting consisted of a panel 
of speakers with knowledge on various aspects of 
the AIDS virus, including an AIDS patient, family 
members of AI DS patients and a psychiatrist. Big 
Bend Cares and the Tallahassee AIDS Support 
System, two organizations that provided much 
information on the emotional, psychological and 
biological aspects of AIDS, were also present at the 

"In Tallahassee there are so many groups 
of people working with the AIDS virus who are 
w^illing to help and answer questions. Allyou have 
to do is ask," Merritt said. 

After the panel of guests spoke, the forum 
turned towards safe sex and AIDS prevention. 
Free informative brochures and birth control were 
passed out among students. The last part of the 
forum was a question and answer period in which 
students could privately write down questions 
about AIDS and have them answered. 

"It w^as fun, entertaining and 
educational — the atmosphere was so relaxed that 
anyone could ask questions and not feel 
embarrassed. It made everyone comfortable 
enough that AIDS awareness increased 
immensely", ZTA Historian Meg Manning said. 

The AIDS Forum had a beneficial effect 
on all who went, as AIDS awareness increased at 
the University. The sorority planned to continue 
their yearly contribution to the campus every fall. 

"It is not a problem that involves just the 
Greek system, it is a nationwide problem that 
affects all of us," ZTA President Shannon Leete

Aside from the image A/ii»m/ Hoiwe portrayed Greeks to have, 
there existed another side just as characteristic; that of philanthropy. In 
1992 alone, Greeks raised over $60,000 for various philanthropies 
ranging from the March ol Dimes to AIDS research and awareness. 

Methods of raising lunds for various chanties were very 
creative; activities ranged from tricycle races to beauty pageants and 
linedance competitions. The money raised at these events went to benefit 
a fraternity or sorority's philanthropy which was generally chosen by 
the national office and remained the same every year. 

For40years, Sigma Chi 'sZ)fr/;i/Z)^zi/<'' one ofthe oldest and most 
anticipated events in the Greek community, had taken place on campus. 
Proceeds had traditionally gone to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy 
Association. It was changed to benefit Tallahassee Big Bend Cares, a 
local charity and a subsidiary agency ol the United Way. It dealt 
specifically with AIDS education and support. 

Not only was the philanthropy changed but the format oi Derby 
Day^t was changed as well. In the past there was a week ol festivities and 
sorority competitions, hence the name Derby Dayj. The popularity of the 
Derby'ii format, including competitions between the different Greek 
houses, grew so much that the IFC was forced to cut Derby Day.* to just 
one day because the calendar was so filled with other houses' 
philanthropy events. 

The Epsilon Zeta chapter of Sigma Chi fraternity decided to 
change their philanthropy in order to benefit a local charity, since many 
other Greeks had the MDA as their philanthropy as well. The brothers 
felt that AIDS was a more timely issue and the change was well received 
by everyone. 

"I thought that it was time for a change. With the disease 
spreading so rapidly, I wanted to make the community and the campus 
more aware of the problem and of its prevention. And what better 
audience to receive that message than students," Sigma Chi 
Philanthropy Chair Chris Trier said. 
(Continued on page 192.) 


Derby Days 191 


(Continued from page 191) 

The virus was spreading so rapidly and the statistics were so overwhelming that 
more awareness was needed on campus and in the Greek community. 

"It's an issue that hits closer to home. More people our age are dying ol 
AIDS these days than they are ol muscular dystrophy, " Sigma Chi brother Todd 
Watson said. 

Another medium used to boost awareness for the event was the Derby Day,' 
magazine. Instead ol being hlled with advertisements Irom sponsors alone, it also 
had AIDS facts and stories designed to encourage awareness and activism. 

"This program is different from all ol our past Derby Dayj magazines in that 
it is designed not only as an advertising medium but also as an educational tool for 
people from all walks of campus and the community," Trier said. 

It \vas estimated that by the year 2000, one out of every four people -will have 
been inlected with the filV Virus, the precursor to the AIDS Virus, and in a student 
population it was likely to be even higher. 

Although the decision to change philanthropies was that of the 
philanthropy chair. Trier was optimistic about the choice ol his successor and hoped 
future Derble^^ would beneht AIDS research and awareness. 

"Don't put your head in the sand. Anyone can get AIDS. But knowledge 
is power and that's ^k\\3X Derby Day^i is all about, " a quote from Derby Day,) Magazine

Delta Sigma Theta participated in various 
activities to help establish the goals of the sorority's Five 
Point Program Thrust which included economic 
development, educational development, international 
awareness and involvement, political awareness and 
involvement, and physical and mental health. 

To serve the community, AZ0 provided 
companionship for the elderly at Miracle Hill Nursing 
Home, contributed money to the United Negro College 
Fund, tutored runaways at Someplace Else and 
participated in the University's Health Fest. 

"We have a lot of participation at our seminars and 
at the shelters, " president Letitia Price said. 

Politically, members sponsored the "Does You 
Vote Count?" seminar to give students the opportunity to 
meet Tallahassee's political candidates, held voter 
registration drives and helped kids with voting. 

'We had a voter registration drive with kids age 
seven to 17 mock voting at actual voting polls," Price said. 

The sorority collected canned goods that were 
donated to the Hurricane Andrew Relief Effort, sponsored 
a seminar on "Homophobia" and sponsored a pageant that 
raised $300 for the Tallahassee Urban League. They also 
sponsored a Halloween Party for students at the Lincoln 
Child Care Center, helped clean up Frenchtown, Holton 
Street and the Joe Louis projects during the annual "Into 
the Streets" national service project and donated 
Thanksgiving baskets. 

Sorority members worked with the Just Say No 
program, the Ronald McDonald House and the Cold Night 
Shelter. They also co-sponsored a seminar "By Any Means 
Necessary," which was a discussion on the life on Malcolm 
X held during Stop Racism Week. 

"We feel that it is very important to educate our 
members based on upon the agenda set by our five point 
program, " Price said.

Through the joint efforts of the Interfraternity Council, the 
Panhellenic Association and the Pan Greek Council, campus Greek 
organizations came together during Greek Week to raise $2,000 for 
needy organizations. Proceeds were divided with $850 going to Big 
Bend Cares, $150 to the School Intervention Program, $500 to the Elder 
Care Services and $500 to the Walker/Ford Foundation. 

The week began with a faculty luncheon on University 
President Dale Lick's lawn. That evening brought the much anticipated 
skit night. Held at The Moon, tickets were sold in advance for $4 and 
were $5 at the door. There were four judges who tallied the points for 
each performance. A total of 350 points was the highest a pairing could 
receive for their skit with 200 of those points coming from the talent 
category, 60 points from the theatrical appearance category, 75 points 
from the originality/creativity category and 15 points Irom the crowd 
participation category. Skits w^ere w^ide in variety, ranging from AIa<) 
Ala.x Beyon<) Thunderdoine to Aladdin to Popeye. Eight to 1 members were 
required to participate in each skit and each performance was between 
three and five minutes long. While the speaking was prerecorded, the 
singing was not. 

There was a tie lor hrst place between the pairings ol Sigma 
Sigma Sigma/Lambda Chi and Delta Zeta/Pi Kappa Phi. Kappa Alpha 
Theta and Delta Tau Delta captured second place ^A'hile third place went 
to Zeta Tau Alpha and Phi Kappa Tau. 

Tuesday brought Movie Night at I. C. Flicks. Fraternity and 
sorority members watched a movie with middle school students as part 
of the School Intervention Program. This evening was a night out with 
the older kids as a reward for being straight and staying off drugs. 

"I feel that this evening was far more valuable than any 
monetary donation we could ever give these kids, " Greek Council 
Programming Director Dave Klein said. "We may not have the financial 
resources but we do have the manpower. " 

Union Blitz Day was held on the Wednesday of Greek Week

on the Union Green. Each pairing shared a table upon which they displayed their 
philanthropy and community participation. Community service exhibitions were 
stressed instead of Homecoming or intramural awards. Later in the evening, 

Greeks came to Moore Auditorium tor the Greek Movie Night showing o( Single^i. 
The originally planned outdoor event had to be canceled due to University 
restrictions on amplified sound after 5:00 p.m. 

Although there were no planned events for Thursday, Friday brought 
Community Service Day from 1 :00p.m. to 5:00 p.m. with the Clean Up Frenchtown 

"With this effort, w^e hoped not only to improve our public relations -within 
the community but also to give our members hand-on volunteer experience," 
Panhellenic President Julie Dunn said. 

In collaboration with the Urban Housing Commission, each pairing 
worked on two randomly assigned houses. The pairing was responsible for 
providing two ladders and 20 paint brushes to use in the clean up. 

"In order to exemplify the Greek system's unity and our dedication to the 
community we decided to reach out with a hands-on approach. This was a great way 
to help others," Community Service Day co-chair Patty Wilson said. 

There were Saturday plans including March of Dimes WalkAmerica 
followed by a Field day Greek social and awards ceremony. How^ever, one of the 
worst storms in history canceled WalkAmerica and planned field day events.

was easy to become a number, a social security 
number that is, with over 28,000 students here on campus. 
How^ever, there was a way for each student to find 
themselves and to find a niche in which they belong. 

The niche was found through organizations. There 
v/as a special place for each individual to become a name, a 
face and a friend for someone else in these clubs. 

Holding a senate seat could have been a "niche" for one 
person where belonging to the Ultimate Frisbee Club or to 
the Wesley Foundation was perfect for another. On a 
campus where there was a Jewish Student Union, a Black 
Student Union and a Baptist Student Union every student 
becomes more than a number. 

It was in these organizations that students learned 
about life. It was here that people learned to how to manage 
their "life". A student may have a full class load, work, 
homework and still somehow. ..some way found time to 
make it to the meeting at 7p.m. , work on the story /project/ 
ad that is due for another club and manage to tell their 
friends and family that they really enjoyed being busy. 

The lifetime friends that they made in different 
organizations and the experiences they shared and learned 
made organizations domethuig for eK'eryone.

active members. 

Alpha Phi Omega was 
named the Organizaitons of theyear

After being awarded the 
honor they felt ot necessary to live 
up to all that they accomplished the 
year before.

fraternity, A^O w^as based on 

There was a concentration 
on the four C's in their service: 
campus, community, chapter and 

Along with these 
concentrations the foundation of the 
fraternity was on three cardinal 
principles: leadership, friendship 
and service. 

They participated in many 
service projects that included the 
annual Jail n' Bail, Ugly 'Nole on 
Campus an organ donor drive. 
Muscular Distrophy Association's

Chosen as the 1992 Organization of the Year, 
Alpha Phi Omega members worked even harder to estab- 
lish themselves within the campus and community. AOQ 
was a national, co-ed service fraternity based upon the 
three cardinal principles of leadership, friendship and ser- 

What the Iota Rho chapter of AOQ was best 
known for, though, was its service. Broken down into four 
categories, AOQ concentrated on the four C's for its service 
program: campus, community, chapter and country. 

"By dedicating ourselves to serving the four C's, 


our organizaiton has a very fulfilling and well rounded 
program of community service, " Robin Kaye, service vice 
president for the spring, said. 

On campus, AOQ worked with various organiza- 
tions including the Women's Center, Disabled Student 
Services and International Student Affairs. For the 
Women's Center, members organized the Blue Ribbon 
Campaign for Stop Rape Week. Members helped with the 
ISA dinner and assisted disabled students by raising money 
through a car wash, doing a flyer blitz and reading weekly 
for Independence for the Blind. 

AOQ focused a great deal of energy on community 
service within the Tallahassee area. For the Easter Seals, 
members worked a bike-a-thon and did landscaping at the 
office. AOQ brothers cleaned their Monroe Street stretch 
on the Adopt-a- Highway program, helped clean St. Francis 
Wildlife Foundation and washed buses for Taltran. Work 
days were held with Octoberfix and the Florida Baptist 
Children's Home. 

AOQ also had three ongoing projects that lasted 
throughout the year. There was a weekly project 
babysitting for the Tallahassee Coalition for the Homeless 
in addition to working with the Emergency Care and Help 
Organization. The fraternity also w^orked with the Associa- 
tion for Retarded Citizens. A weekly bowling project took 
place each Monday night in addition to a Halloween and a 
Valentine's Day dance. 

Additional community projects included the 
Ronald McDonald House Spring Clean-up, working at the 
Nature Conservancy, helping with the Tallahassee Animal 
Shelter Adopt-a-pet, working at the Very Special Arts Big 
Bend Art Festival, decorating Tallahassee Memorial and 
Regional Medical Center's children's ward for St. Patrick's 
Day, hosting Spring Fun Day preparing and having brunch 
with residents of Lake Ella Manor. 

Since AOQ was founded on the principles of 
scouting, members helped w^ith a work day at both the Boy 
Scout and Girl Scout camps and helped w^ith the Boy Scout 
Expo at the Tallahassee Leon County Civic Center. 

For the chapter itself, members organized a safety 
conference, a leadership development seminar and had a 
motivational speaker. They also held a chapter planning

sectional and national conventions as well as a chapter 
president's workshop. 

"Nothing bonds brothers quicker than a 26 hour 
van ride to Boston sittmg on luggage, " delegate Jeremy 
Blinn said. 

On a national level, AOil served the country when 
Hurricane Andrew devastated South Florida, AOH broth- 
ers jumped right in and assisted by helping collect money at 
the University football game against Wake Forest. 

"I think that so many brothers were willing to help 
because it hit home. Everyone knew someone that had been 
aflected, " Kelly McCabe, vice president of service lor the 
fall, said. "Even though it was last minute, there was no 
problem getting help because everyone understood the 
urgency of the need." 

Once again, AOQ assisted the Muscular Dystro- 
phy Association with the Halloween Haunted Trail. A new 
twist was added, ho'wever, as members not only worked 
\vith the trail but actually helped construct it as well. 

In the Union, members manned tables that con- 
ducted an organ donor drive, Ugly 'Nole on Campus that 
raised $600 tor the American Red Cross as well as the White 

Christmas tood and clothing collection tor the United Way. 

AOQ also distributed information for the Ameri- 
can Diabetes Association, raised money and walked in the 
CROP Walk tor Church World Services . 

Spring brought a challenge to the fraternity with 
two tremendous projects. In addition to working the mall 
site, AOQ organized a campus based Jail 'N Bail which 
raised $6700 tor the American Cancer Society. 

"It was w^ondertul being part of such a worthwhile 
event that gathered together so many people. It was 
amazing that ^^/e accomplished so much even though we 
were limited to just campus," Parole Board Captain Kim 
Pearcy said. 

AOQ also raised $4900 for March of Dimes 
WalkAmerica, which was the largest amount tor a campus 
organization and the tenth largest amount overall. Money 
was raised through car washes, bake sales and door-to-door 

"Considering it was the walk that never was, w^e 
raised one hundred percent over our total from lastyear. As 
a traternity, we challenged ourselves and as a fraternity, we 
pulled together to meet this challenge," co-chair EA David 
said. "We sho^A'ed ourselves what can be accomplished 
when we work together."

Caribbean Club 

The Caribbean Club 
was interested in maintaining 
a place w^here involved 
students could explore the 
Carribean heritage and 
culture outside of the 
classroom. It was a social 
setting that allowed for guest 
speakers, fundraising and fun. 

They were a part of 
many fundraising and 

charitable activities. These 
activities included the Cane 
Cutters program that gave 
awareness to migrant 
workers in South Florida. 

They were also a 
part of activities with the 
Tallahassee Urban League. 
There work with the Urban 
League included bake sales 
and membership drives.

206 Organizations 

The Caribbean Students Association has been 
serving the university and the Tallahassee community for over 
1 5 years. It presented various cultural, educational and social 
events throughout the year. The organization was made up of 
different types of students. 

"We want to cater to students from the Caribbean, 
those ol Caribbean ancestry, students who study it and those 
who are interested in the Caribbean and its culture," Bryan 
Alii, president of the Caribbean Student Association, said. 

A main component of the group's activities was its 
general meeting. Guest speakers attended and members 





played cultural games. 

'It's basically a chance lor everyone to get to know 
one another. We have about 70 to 80 people attending the 
meetingsand we want to inform and entertain them, "Alii said. 

This organization sponsored the Cane Cutters 
program which was designed to make the public aware of 
migrant workers in South Florida. Many companies 
sacrificed the safety and health of the workers in order to make 
a profit. Films, lectures and debates enlightened the public to 
this problem of exploitation. 

The Caribbean Students Association provided 
cultural retreats for its members to educate them in a fun and 
relaxed way. In the fall, the organization held its retreat at the 
Reservation. It contained all aspects of Caribbean culture 
such as music, food, films and sports. 

"We hope they feel at home, " Alh said. 

In addition to educating and entertaining the 
university's students, the Caribbean Students Association 
developed a relationship with the Tallahassee community. 

"We have a commitment to bettering the Tallahassee 
community, " Alii said. 

This organization was important to the activities of 
the city's Urban League. The Caribbean Students Association 
raised money for the league through bake sales and 
membership drives. Its help aided such activities as the Youth 
Program and the Victims' Assistance Program. These 
programs educated youths and kept them off the street and 
helped victims of violent crimes. 

The Caribbean Students Association promoted 
diversity of culture, encouraged all to participate and 
demonstrated concern for the community. It came as no 
surprise that this outstanding group was named Organization 
of the Year. 

"We're working toward a common cause. ..unity," 
Alii said. 


Carribean 207 

"Gently down the stream... " is not the way to 
describe ho^v FSU Crew rows their boats. The new team 
made a wake across the southeast, as well as the Ivy League 
domain of the north. Conceived in spring of 1990, the 
Rowing Club set out to establish a program for recreation. 
Then by fall of 1991, competitive racing was introduced to 
FSU rowers , at the Head ot ol the Chattahoochee Regatta 
in Atlanta. 

Since that First regatta, the Rowing Club became 
the Crew Club. Through tundraising and toresighted 
allocations by the student senate. Crew has been growing 
into a functioning athletic team. Though still a club sport, 




the crew has developed a regular regime ol rowing 
practices, land aerobic training and weight training. Any 
student can join the crew, but lew stay with the program. 
Those who do gain sell respect and a lun way of keeping 
physically Fit. 

This season marked a milestone lor FSU crew. 
Combined membership of the men's and women's teams 
was well over forty people. The First official coach for the 
crew arrived from Syracuse. Heather Mills had rowed for 
the Women's Varsity Eight while at Syracuse and brought 
her experience to help train FSU rowers. Also, in February, 
the US Olympic Rowing coach, Kris Korzeniowski, came to 
visit the crew. At the encouragement ol the Crew president, 
Joe Hodges, Korzeniowski gave training tips to the team as 
well as the new coach. Expecting to see an extremely feeble 
program, Korzeniowski was surprised such a self motivated 
group of athletes. 

"To have to endure such poor rowing conditions 
(old equipment, lack ol funding, no boat house, weed 
chocked lake). I am impressed to find the great effort put 
forth by Florida State rowers, " Korzenio^wski said. 

With this effort, the men and women of the crew 
were able to race in several categories per regatta. The crew 
entered both novice and varsity level races as well. The 
Crew competed in si.x regattas, plus one boat qualified for 
the national Rowing Championships. 

"No one thinks of FSU as a rowing school because 
we are so new, but we put our names on the map, " Andre 
Armenariz said. 

Armenariz rowed in the in the Men's Four at the 
National rowing Championship in Philadelphia, 
Pennsylvania, along with Mark Helms, Ronnie Hamed and 
Johnathan Maket. 

"FSU was the obvious underdog, " Helms said. 

The one who calls the shots as w^ell as the stroke 
rate, is the coxswain, Yvonne Colodny. Colodny coxed the 
boats at Nationals. 

"FSU is virtually unknown and we had to prove 
ourselves as worthy opponents," Colodny said.

Like the men's team

A definite

sport has allowed for women. 

As early as the 1 870's 
women have rowed on

Crew 209 

Between speeches given by either the President or 
Vice President of Student Affairs and a facuhy 'roast', a 
comedic skit about faculty members, the new student 
members with an overall 3.2 GPA were inducted into the 
Eta Sigma Delta organization. These hospitality majors, 
juniors and seniors, ^ve^e recognized in this formal, 
ceremonial way, keeping in mind the air of lightheartedness 
which was purely evident because of the comedy injected 
into the evenings festivities. The organization numbered 
about 1 5 members, which made up nearly ten percent of the 
Business Department. 


Once inducted into the organization, the members 
began their numerous tasks. A mandatory requirement of 
all members was attendance at the two day interviewing 
workshops given. These ^vorkshops entailed local general 
managers from restaurants and hotels giving practice 
interviews. These 30 minute interviews exposed the 
student to what one could expect when looking lor a job. 

These -workshops were very helplul to the 
students. Not only did they learn what to do and not to do, 
the managers who gave the practice interviews took time 
after the interview to discuss the student's strengths and 
what the student needed to work on in order to impress the 
person who could be their future employer. 

In November, the organization also traveled to 
New York City, N.Y., for the annual International Hotel 

"There's a booth set up there to represent FSU," 
organization sponsor Robert Brymer said. "There are 
always two or three students there at the booth where they 
can meet and greet alumni, keep them up on what the group 
is doing. They also meet and give information to students 
there who might attend FSU and they get to meet industry 
representatives who are there. " 

The members got the opportunity to meet industry 
representatives and could take advantage of getting to 
know what those businesses represented were for. 

Yet another opportunity that the member utilized 
was the experience gathered when they went to Atlanta, 
Georgia, and engaged in the Management Shadowing 

"It's just as it sounds," Brymer said. "The student 
is assigned to a manager at the hotel and shadow them for 
the day, like a day in the life. " 

Members got the hands on experience about what 
a hotel manger's job entailed. 

Eta Sigma Delta was proud of the fact that they 
had nearly 100 percent job placement record.

Being a member of the student chapter of the 
Florida Public Relations Association provided students 
with exciting opportunities. Last April, a group of twenty 
students took advantage of one such opportunity when 
they caravaned to Atlanta to learn about various public 
relations careers and have some fun. 

The first stop on the schedule... Shoney's. 
According to vice president Jason Burke, "Everyone 
needed to get organized (and eat a big breakfast) before the 
long day of touring." 

Next the students visited the Atlanta Braves 
stadium, where they met with the assistant director of 


public relations for the almost World Champions. They 
were given a tour of the press box and enjoyed learning 
about the sports related areas of public relations. 

"I am extrememly interested in the sports side of 
PR. It was interesting to learn about the difference in the 
job description when you are working for a winning team 
and when you're not, " April Melquist, a senior public 
relations major, said. 

After leaving the stadium, the students headed to 
the Peachtree Plaza for lunch with the public relations 
director for the Olympic Games. While the group savored 
a delicious meal, they learned some interesting facts about 
the Summer Games scheduled for 1996. He told an 
inspirational story about Atlanta's reaction to the 
announcement that they had been selected as the host. 

The last official stop was Fleishman & Hillard, a 
PR firm that boasts Budweiser as one of their largest 
accounts. Here everyone had the opportunity to ask 
several questions and the most popular one seemed to be, 
"How do I get a job when I graduate? ' 

Other than asking questions, the students were 
sho^vn around the office and learned more about hoNv an 
agency operates. 

The trip to Atlanta wasn't all work and no play. 
The group took advantage of some of Atlanta's favorite 
attractions such as Hard Rock Cafe, Macy s. Underground 
Atlanta, the night life at Buckhead and lots of other fun 
spots. All of these things, plus lots of walking, were part oif 
the weekend. 

Tim Smith was one student who took advantage of 
the various attractions Atlanta has to offer. He and some 
other students were pleasantly surprised when they met the 
actor Kevin Nealon during their night out on the town. As 
Tim put it, "the entire trip was an incredible, eye-opening 
experience to the opportunities in public relations. But, 
meeting Kevin Nealon was a big thrill! " 

"I really loved the bustling big city atmosphere 
and everyone was so friendly! I can't wait to go back... 
permanently! " Wendy Diehl said.

The 1993 football recruiting class was named number 
one m the country. Part of the success was attributed to the 
efforts ol the official recruitmg hostesses, the Garnet and Gold 

The Garnet and Gold Girls was a group of 44 female 
students who acted as the official recruiting hostesses for the 
Athletic Department. They dedicated their time and service in 
order to recruit student-athletes. While much of what they did 
was behind the scenes, this special attention did not go 
unnoticedd by the athletes they were recruiting, nor the 
athletic department that acted as their guidance. 

The Garnet and Gold Girls remained active 



throughout the year, as their job did not begin or end on the 
football field. Responsibilities began with selection during the 
annual Spring membership drive. After being chosen out of 
the pool ol applicants, the girls began their challenge. The 
Summer was spent assisting with football camp. Media and 
Fan Appreciation Day and organizational activities preparing 
for the Fall rush of activities. 

When football season was in full swing, all Saturdays 
with home games were dedicated to the recruitment ol high 
school prospects. This included weekly meetings, festivities 
including tours, coaches' meetings, highlight fiilms and 
speeches, along with various other activities appropriated by 
athletic department administration. Once the season was 
complete, the NCAA official recruiting period began. 
According to most of the girls, this \vas the toughest and most 
time consuming part of the year. 

"I enjoyed meeting recruits and families from all over 
Florida and the country. It was time consuming but worth it. 
I definitely would do it again," member Tammy Atmore said. 

Prospects were invited to a complimentary weekend 
stay in Tallahassee, which included tours, meetings with 
position coaches and academic advisors, a look at campus life 
and an occasional basketball game or dessert at Head Coach 
Bobby Bowden s home. The Garnet and Gold Girls were 
present at all events, and provided a helping hand to recruits 
and their families. 

The Garnet and Gold Girls also provided spirit to the 
football team itself. They did this through banners, posters, 
locker decorations, visits to injured players and their teammate 
program. The teammate program matched up each girl with 
two or three players. The girls decorated their lockers and 
provided birthday gifts as well as various other spirit boosters. 
This kept the girls active with the current players and enabled 
the players to continue their relationship with their recruiters. 

"The spirit committee certainly contributes to the 
football team in a special way. We provide a cheery 
atmosphere," Spirit Committee Chairman Lisa Hardy said. 

The organization also assisted with the basketball 
recruiting program, the girls met the prospects for an 
occasional meal or a tour of the athletic facility 

"They are an essential part of the recruiting process. What 
they do is often underestimated," Current Recruiting 
Coordinator Ronnie CottrellCottrell said.

"We are here to talk to you about t^vo very 
important issues in a college student's lite: birth control and 
STD's," began an FSU Today member. The information 
which followed proved shocking. "One out ot every ten 
FSU students has condyloma, commonly known as genital 
warts. One out of every 87 FSU students has herpes. One 
out of every 50 students has the HIV virus, " continued 
Karlene Cole and Ross Davis, members of FSU Today. 

These statistics and dozens more were computed 
by the Thagard Student Health Center and reported by 
peer sex educators in campus presentations. 



Approximately 20 in all, these sex educators made up FSU 
Today, short for "For Sexual Understanding Today " and 
^vere sponsored and trained by the campus student health 

Potential members were selected through an 
interview. Mary Penny, the Health Educator at Thagard 
and coordinator of FSU Today, stressed that speaking 
ability, theatrical ability and an openmindedness to sexual 
issues were desired qualities ot an FSU Today member. A 
counselor's role is to give information rather than opinions. 
It is essential that the member stay unbiased 

Four months of rigorous training were required 
before a member may participate in a public presentation. 
Meeting two hours weekly, FSU Today members role- 
played possible educator-patient scenarios and reviewed 
communication approaches. 

"Examining every angle is crucial in determining 
how information is perceived," said Meredith McNeely, still 
in training with FSU Today. 

Each member was also responsible for researching 
one of the following subjects: condyloma, AIDS, 
abstinence, chlamydia, the pill, STD testing, herpes, 
gonorrhea, and proper condom usage. The information was 
organized into a formal report and distributed to all other 

"This way we all learn from one-another's hard 
work, " claimed Heather Griffin, also a new FSU Today 

After training the fun begins. Skits combined 
humor with answers to real-life situations. Performers acted 
out dates in w^hich couples stumbled over the issue of 
whether of not to have sex. Myths were dispelled while 
view^ers were entertained. Following the presentation the 
audience was asked to evaluate the performers. Comments 
were later reviewed and discussed. A doctor from the health 
center -was present at all times to answer any questions FSU 
Today members could not. 

Taking new steps in education and safety, FSU 
Today made an impact on college student's lives. Wrapping 
up the hour performance, one is reminded that ". . .FSU 
Today IS not here to encourage sex or abstinence, but to 
provide you with information to make educated decisions."

The FAMU/FSU College ol Engineering suffered 
severe racial tensions in a conflict of what some blamed on 
white domination. Last Spring, an anonymous graffiti artist 
spray-painted the letters "KKK" and a misspelled warning 
"Becalale " (Be careful) on the north wall of the engineering 
school building. The scribbled messages were just two- 
dimensional reminders of the problems that divided many 
engineer students. 

The vandalism occurred just a few hours after a 
meeting was held by the COE's Dean Ching-Jen Chen. The 
Dean met with students and discussed problems the students 
wanted to change, especially the low ratio of black professors 
to the slight majority of black students. Although the COE 



only had 40 percent from the predominantly black Florida 
Agricultural and Mechanical University students, blacks 
(including FSU students) comprised 46 percent of the student 
body as opposed to 45 percent of white students. 

The tensions were caused by the fact that only four 
black professors taught at the college and only 85 out of 795 
bachelor's degrees \vere awarded to blacks in the 1 Oyears the 
school had existed. 

"A lot of faculty members are unaware of how the 
things they do and say make minority students feel, " FAMU 
senior Simon Johnson said. "Students feel they came to 
FAMU to attend a Black college. But what has happened is 
they attend a college of engineering which is predominantly 
white and where most of the professors seem to have an 
allegiance to FSU, and they don't get the support they thought 
they would get. " 

"We are students at the FAMU/FSU not FSU/ 
FAMU College of Engineering. This may seem trivial to many 
people at FSU, but it is a mistake made so many times by 
people who simply don t care enough to get it right, that we are 
sick and tired of it, " wrote FSU engineering students Shannon 
Estenoz and Jackie Breiter in a letter to the Flambeau. 

A protest rally brewed one day after the meeting 
ended in heated discussion and the graffiti, allegedly drawn by 
a white culprit, was cleaned of f of the wall. Paul Philpott, a 
white engineering student who helped organize the rally, 
wanted to put an end to the racial conflicts. 

"As long as FSU has something to do with the 
engineering school, Black students will never feel comfortable 
and they'll never graduate in appreciable numbers, " Philpott 
said. "White people already have two engineering schools in 
Florida and it's time Black people had one. " 

Others felt it was the faculty and administration, not 
their classmates, that caused the frustration and tension in the 

Even organizations within the college tried to handle 
the increased level of animosity with positive thinking. 

"We just want to have a unified college again, ' 
Institute for Industrial Engineers President Kit Kuhlman 
said. "The racial tension is not only hurting students, but their 
education as well."

The Intel -Residence Hall Council was an 
organization representing over 4,000 on campus students 
residing in 14 residence halls. IRHC had duel purposes. 

First, IRHC acted as a liaison between University 
Housing and the 14 residence hall governments. IRHCand 
the residence hall governments were like a wheel, with 
IRHC being the hub of the wheel and the 14 other hall 
governments connected to the hub acting as the spokes for 
the wheel. IRHC's liaison helped to coordinate programs 
and services in the various residence halls. 

The second purpose w^as to provide programming 
and leadership opportunities lor the residence hall leaders. 



This was accomplished through the different programs that 
IRHC presents for all residents. 

These programs could have been in conjunction 
with a planned week on campus such as Alcohol Awareness 
Week or run during a conference lor all the hall leaders. 

IRHC along with University Housing and the 
residence hall leaders were successful in hosting the second 
annual conference for the Florida Association of Residence 
Halls (FARH). FARH was the state association of 
residence halls. It was comprised of different resident hall 
associations, such as the IRHC from the South Atlantic 
Region and the nation. 

The University was an affiliated, dues paying 
member of the Florida Association of University Residence 
Halls, and the National Association of College and 
University Residence Halls. 

Conferences such as FARH helped the 
development of residents whom attended through 
w^orkshops. These workshops focused on a variety of issues 
including: leadership development, personal enhancement 
and program development. 

The residents who attended these conferences 
explored critical issues that were pertinent to their college 
and university campuses. These residents were enhanced 
personally and professionally. Also the residents met a 
number of other residents from different campuses around 
the country. Meeting new people provided opportunities 
to learn about each other and the various schools. 

FARH which was hosted on campus in the Spring 
consisted of several ^vorkshops on a variety of issues. 
Residents from across the state attended. 

The state Board of Directors conducted it's annual 
business meeting during the conference. 

The conference was ended with a dance presented 
by Inter-Residence Hall Council. The delegates of the 
conference enjoyed the entertainment. 

The experience gained by the conference and 
hosting the event has helped IRHC to be a continuing 
strong force in the region, state and nation.

The most recent wave of popular television shows 
entering American homes over the past few seasons was not the 
celebrity-based sitcom or nighttime soap operas. The hottest 
programs were actually live or recreated police beats and 
educated millions on the field of criminology. But unlike the 
program "Cops," University criminology students learned the 
value ot belonging to Lambda Alpha Epsilon, the only fraternal 
organization at the University dedicated to professionalism in 
the criminology field. 

Not only was the Lambda chapter of LAE the largest 
chapter with 147 members, but it was also named "Chapter of 
the Year" by its National Office at the Annual Conference in 
March. The Annual National Conference in Albuquerque, 
New Mexico, offered more than workshops and awards, it gave 



students the chance to use their training. They were judged on 
how well they transformed book work into real world in 
academics, pistol competitions, physical agility and crime 
scene investigation. 

The mock crime scenario depicted financial fraud 
and the Lambda chapter successfully determined a network 
analysis based on the income and outcome of the case. 

"It (the conference) is a special and unique thing," 
sponsor Laura Nagy said. "It's the only organization I kno^v 
of to have professionals and students working together in 
helping to stop crime." 

The average police academy application has taken 
about eight months in the past to process and once in the 
program, connections and experienced backgrounds were 
essential to police training. LAE prepared students for the 
real \vork of police officers and investigators through 
philanthropic service, competition in karate and pistol teams, 
fundraising and guest speakers with whom students made 
professional contacts and learned about actual experiences. 

"We've got a really aggressive group involved in all 
aspects of criminology and criminal justice, " former LAE 
President Elizabeth Motto said. 

Aside from the victories won at the National 
Conference, the Lambda chapter took home 28 awards in the 
regional competition held last fall in Tallahassee and LAE's 
karate team raised the most money on campus of any Sports 
Club Council organization for the March of Dimes. 

"It enhanced our relationships with other 
professional organizations... I learned a lot of how to be a team 
member and work together as you -would in the field. It ^vas a 
great experience for me," former Sergeant-at-Arms Ken 
Koehler said. 


Lambda Alpha Epsilon 223 

Experiencing considerable growth since its 
beginning in 1949, the debate team emerged as a contender 
For the 1992 national championship. At the national 
competition held in Arlington, Texas, 29 teams from 30 
states participated. The University's team lost in the final 
round on a fourth redecision. 

"It couldn't have been any closer, " James Brey, 
director of the speech and debate team, said. 

In August 1990, Brey became the director of the 
small and young debate team with a room, two coaches and 
two debaters. The squad has grown to include nine debate 
teams and 12 people who competed in individual events. 


The team has also grown in status. The squad was 
ranked 23rd and had not been that high ranking since April 
1986. At a prestigious Round Robin invitational in St. 
Louis, Missouri, the top eight teams in the nation received 
an invitation. This university received two of these 

One of the factors responsible for the team's 
success was the support from the debate alumni, Forensics 
department, administration and the Student Government 
Association. Brey stated that the support was 

The coaching staff was also a factor for success. 
There were seven coaches who did a vast majority of the 
hands on coaching. Many of the coaches came into the 
College of Communications for their Master's degree or 
doctorate. These diverse graduate students were 
responsible for their ow^n studies, coaching and traveling 
on the weekends to tournaments. 

The main component in the program's success 
involved the student members. Their attention to the 
activity combined with their desire to seek out members of 
the coaching staff to work with them earned this team its 
admirable reputation. In preparation for debate 
topics, each member compiled enough information to 
equal two term papers each week. Top debaters such as 
Jay Kanell, team captain, averaged two and a half to three 
term papers a w^eek. 

Despite their overwhelming success, the debate 
team maintained a sense of modesty. While the team was 
known for its credibility it was also noted for its 

"My kids are very professional and very kind and 
that's a nice reflection on the university. It's not a nice 
activity. It's very competitive in nature, " Brey said. 

Fellow students were equally impressed with the 
team's success and each member's accomplishments. 

"They are hardworking and dedicated, real 
student role models. They also give the college a good 
name, " junior Miguel Fernandez said. 

James Brey worked hard to have a nationally 
recognized program and debate team . He said that at times 
he felt like a parent — very proud and protective.

fundraiser that

was one that 
concerned the 
survival of exam

to all freshmen 
presenting the 
idea of a packet 
full of candy 
along with other 
necessary items 
such as a library 
schedule and 
other campus 
information. This 
fundraiser has 
not only been a 
success for SAA, 
but also a way to 
raise more money 
so as to 
participate in 
more alumni and 
campus activities. 

The Student Alumni Association enjoy meeting each other at the "New Member Reception" in the fall.

Campus, 347 acres of red, brick Gothic structures 
amidst hovering oaks, housed not only lecture halls, but 
memories of outstanding alumni. Since 1909 the Alumni 
Association, the communications link between alumni and the 
growing university, was responsible for strengthening the 
Seminole community. Through the Seminole Club network, 
alumni tours, away-game receptions, Alumni Spring Weekend 
and the alumni state magazine, we of Florida State were 
assured that its influence was not a passing one. 

"The Alumni Association is a records-keeping and a 
friends-making volunteer group," said Betty Lou Joanos, 
Associate Director of the Alumni Association and former 


National Chairman. 

A walking encyclopedia of tales, Joanos, with 
fondness, spoke of the deans, governors and alumni after 
which the buildings were named. While keeping one foot in the 
door of the future, the university was solidly grounded in 

"The most cherished of the alumni," explained 
Joanos, "were the graduates of the Florida State College for 

Time spent with these women was highly 
entertaining as they vividly recalled Dr. Katherine W. 
Montgomery, after whom Montgomery Gym was named, and 
other FSU contributors. The Florida State College for 
Women was a highly recognized academic institution. 

"Dr. Montgomery was a woman ahead of her time." 
said Joanos. 

Montgomery felt one's physical health was important 
and required one hour of strenuous daily exercise from her 
students. As a result, Florida State became recognized not 
only for its academics, but for its competitive athletic leagues. 
Every spring the Alumni Association honors its fifty-year 
graduates, honorary members of the Emitris Club. 

Working closely with Seminole Boosters, the Student 
Alumni Association and the FSU Foundation, the Alumni 
Association supported a database system of more than 180,000 
graduates and friends. Alumni showed their gratitude by 
becoming members of local Seminole Clubs. 

During the Homecoming w^eekend Omicron Delta 
Kappa honored three "Grads Made Good" based on their 
achievements in their chosen field. Among these have been 
General Norma Bro^vn, the first woman Air Force general, Dr. 
Raul Guzman, Director of Exiucation for the Philippines and 
Davis Gaines, the present Phantom oi Phantom of the Opera in 

"Working closely with all aspects of the university, 
the Alumni Association has strong leadership in 
administration's decision making process, " said Joanos. 

Without hindsight one cannot move forward 
successfully. The Alumni Association is Florida State's 
hindsight and an integral part of its successful future.

Have you ever wanted to be the next Cindy 
Crawford, Naomi Campbell or Beverly Johnson? 

Perhaps you would have liked to enhance your 
confidence or just improve the way you carry yourself. 
Then the Elite Modeling Troupe provided the skills 
necessary to accomplish these goals. 

Formed in 1988, the modeling troupe provided its 
members with more than a tew tashion tips. 

"We hold workshops on posture, poise and 
etiquette. We teach things that carry over to other aspects 
of life. For instance, in a job interview if you are slouched 
over in your chair, that sends a negative message to the 




potential employer. In Elite, you learn how to walk, keep 
your back straight and to exude confidence," President 
Felicia Brunson said. 

The Elite Modeling Troupe put on one major 
fashion show during the Fall semester and performed 
several smaller shows throughout the Spring and Summer. 

"The Spring and Summer semesters go by so fast 
that we don't have time to comprise a major show. 
However, we did perform little fashion shows for the grand 
opening of Governor's Square Mall, the Caribbean 
Student Association and the Alpha Phi Alpha Talent 
Show," Brunson said. 

Elite received its clothing from local retail stores. 
The clothing \A^as not theirs to keep but if they wanted to 
purchase it they received a 20 to 25% discount. 

However, Brunson wanted to expand Elite past 
the Tallahassee city limits. 

"One project w^e are working on now is to get 
together with the different modeling troupes from colleges 
in the South to form a universal modeling troupe that 
performs fashion shows at different schools, " Brunson 

Elite held tryouts every Fall semester. They 
consisted of interviews and the workshops. Those who 
possessed the necessary qualities were asked to join this 
prestigious group. 

This modeling troupe was not all glitz and glamour 
as discipline and dedication were tw^o qualities that Elite 
looked for in potential members. 

"Physically, we take a wide range of people. But 
mostly we look for people who are open to criticism. Also, 
you have to maintain a certain weight. In the past, we've 
had members doing sit-ups or running an hour before the 
show just so they can fit into their outfit," Brunson said.

There was also a need to 
produce a social excellance 
among the groups members. 

Ambassadors was a select 
group of students who 
worked directly with the 
office of admissions. They 
assisted them in their 
recruiting efforts. 

At admissions 
sessions on Monday and 
Friday the ambassadors 
provided prospective 

students and their parents 
with the opportunity to 
question on college life and 
asssisted with walking tours 
of campus. They felt they 
were a source of information. 
They also received 
allocations from Student 
Government to visit Florida 
area high schools for 
recruitment purposes.

The longest standing athletic organization at 
Florida State, the Tarpons, began in 1937 as a Lile Saving 
Core run out oF Montgomery Gym. At that time the focus 
was safety. What began as an athletic event became a water 
art. The tarpons were the oldest continuing synchronized 
swimming club in the nation and one of the founders of the 
National Institute for Creative Aquatics remained an 
intricate part of creative s'wimming. 

"We have always been focused on the art rather 
than the sport of synchronized swimming, " Alicia Crew, 
coach for the Tarpons, said. 


Funded by student government to perform a home 
show in the Spring, more funding was needed to be a 
competitive league. 

During the 1940s through the 1950s synchronized 
swimming started as the American Amateur Union. The 
tradition continued throughout the 1960s and early 1970s 
as the International Academy of Aquatic Art. Interested in 
preserving synchronized swimming as a creative outlet, 
FSU helped found the national Institute for Creative 
Aquatics. When the organization folded in 1989, the only 
remaining outlet for non-competitive groups was U.S. 

Allegra Whitney, a past Tarpon member, 
explained the process of becoming an honorary tarpon. 
During the first year of swimming with the tarpons, one was 
assigned meno ranking. After the first Spring Home Show 
and an initiation ceremony, one was an official tarpon. 

" I ve always wanted to be a dancer and I ve been a 
competitive swimmer," Whitney said. "The tarpons are a 
cool combination!" 

Practice was two nights a week for for tarpons and 
three nights a week for menos. Choreography was left up 
to the members and anyone was free to participate. All 
pieces, from pop to Beethoven were rehearsed and 
performed at the Home Show. 

The long rehearsals were needed due to the 
strength required to perform in the water. Eggbeaters, a 
rotation done with the legs, allowed the swimmer to sit 
upright in the water and to use the arms for ballet motions. 
When hands were underwater, they were used to propel the 
body. The Windmill or Sculling, performed with he hands, 
changed the body's direction in a graceful fashion. 

When underwater, goggles and underw^ater 
speakers were used to rehearse the routine. When the 
goggles were removed for performances, the underwater 
speakers kept the swimmers impressively synchronized. 

The dedication of the tarpons went beyond their 
obvious dexterity in the water. Sets and suits, though 
partially provided by Student Government, were provided 
by the members. Besides being a physical outlet, the 
Tarpon club opened up creative and leadership outlets 
appreciated by its members.

Moot Court was an active and successful 
organization ot the university's law school. It conducted 
mock trials and gave law students an opportunity to 
experience courtroom procedure. 

Moot Court was extremely selective in its 
membership. Ol the 132 applicants, only 14 were chosen to 
become part of the group. Membership was open to hrst 
year second semester and second year law students. 

Competition was divided into mock trial and 
appellate court categories. 

The mock trial division entailed participants 
conducting fictitious trials in the presence of judges. Roles 
were enacted in a realistic fashion and participants were 
scaled accordingly. 

In the appellate court division, members enacted 
the roles of those in district and supreme court hearings. 
The cases tried involved a comprehensive understanding of 
the different areas of law. 

The diverse exposure ot the various facets ot law 
practice gave Moot Court members a more well-rounded 



education concerning law procedures. Having learned to 
apply the ■written text to verbal arguments gave the select 
fourteen an edge over those denied of the opportunity to 
refine courtroom presentation skills. 

"The cases involved criminal, constitutional, 
patent, entertainment and security law. We cover 
everything, " Barbara Smith, president of Moot Court, said. 

Participants were judged based upon the 
coherence of their legal arguments, their presentation skills 
and their ability to answer judges ' questions accurately and 
with confidence. 

Extemporaneous responses demanded strategic 
thinking, impossible to be fully developed outside of the 

In the most recent competition, the organization 
received first place at state level. Moot Court's snowballed 
success resulted in a first place ranking at national level. 
Awarded best brief and best oralist, the team wound up the 
season with a tremendous payoff for their hard work and 
polished style. 

"It's a wonderful experience. It gets you thinking 
on your feet," Smith said.

It started in January, when it was discovered that 
ayear's worth of advertising budget money had been spent 
in only one semester. Then the cabinet resignations were 
turned in from every direction and interpersonal conflicts 
came between the legislative and executive branches. The 
Student Government Association faced criticisms of 
mismanagement and political bickering that began to 
divide the campus into vicious partisan camps and 
surrender student monies to pay for it. 

SGA President Jeanne Belin appointed Sean 
Sullivan, a member of the Monarchy Party, to the unpaid 
position of deputy assistant to the president for public 
relations near the beginning of her candidacy. Sullivan 



was rejected by the Senate for the paid position of director 
of public relations based on his character and previous 

Instead of filling the director position, Belin let 
Sullivan handle all SGA advertisements which gave him 
the duties of director, but unofficially. 

Sullivan managed to spend $27,711.95 between 
the months of July and December. The annual budget for 
advertising was only $30,000 which forced Belin to take 
responsibility and ask Senate to allocate $10,000 from the 
senate projects budget to cover Spring advertisement 

"Without advertising dollars we cannot operate 
student government at all," senate president pro tem Jon 
Snell said. 

It-was then Senate's turn toslapthe wrists of Belin 
and those who did not heed their advice. They voted 
against the allocation but granted $1200 to continue 
advertising until the mismanaged funds could be 
investigated by the judicial branch. 

"It's my responsibility, " Belin said. "If they want 
to waste their time investigating, they're more than 
welcome to. " 

Some student senators, however, felt the 
responsibility landed on Sullivan's lack of fund 

" He was the one making the decisions, " Snell said. 
"He was the one running the ads. " 

But Sullivan believed he was just doing his job 
and said he only ran ads that publicized important events. 

"Whatever the Cabinet decides to advertise, gets 
advertised. I'm the first person to do that statutory job 
correctly, " Sullivan said. 

Others still blamed Belin and admitted the 
students footed the bill for a deficit made in the middle of 
the year. 

" I think the whole situation is a shame and I think 
the students are going to end up paying for it, literally. 
Senate has no choice, " student senator Wendy Stephen

United Latin Society 235 

Cabinet ( continued from page 235) 
Resignations in Belin 's Cabinet were also hard to manage as 
seven members stepped down from their positions tor 
various reasons. 

Four resignations occurred before Winter Break 
and in February, legislative relations director Terry Clark 
and management and budget director Corey King resigned 
amidst political differences with their positions and the 

"She (Belin) didn't like the way I vvas representing 
her in the senate, " Clark said. "She thought I was too pro- 
senate and she didn't feel like I w^as a Cabinet team player. " 

King, on the other hand, resigned after he was 
criticized for his failure to turn in budget requests on time 
which led to budget delays for campus organizations. He 
defended his criticized performance with a student first, 
director second attitude and said he had little time and no 
instruction when he tried to complete the request forms. 

"A week is unrealistic for students, " King said. 
" I'm a student and I don t sit in my office from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 
I have classes. " 

Upon resignation, he said, "I think there comes a 
time in a student's career \vhen he has to move on." 

In March, another cabinet member leh her post 
because of personal discrepancies with Jeanne Belin. 
Carrie Ann Pollock, director of special projects, said Belin's 
attitude toward her changed when she changed political 

"I find that many things which were once so 
familiar have drastically changed. Strong and dear alliances 
have sadly regressed from those of camaraderie and unity to 
those of spite and ostracism, " Pollock said. 

Friction among political ambition-mongers was 
cited by many as the reason for the rampant resignations 
and miscommunication within SGA. 

King said, "There are a lot of partisan politics going 
on and students are looking for reasons to lash-out at each 
other and I don't think that provides a very positive 
environment for students to grow."

The North versus the South. 

The HatFields versus the McCoys. 

These quintessential battles were compared to that of 
the graduate students versus the undergraduate students in 
the battle lor control over Activity and Service fee money. The 
two forces clashed over the issue of who should control the 
graduate students' contribution to A&S fees. 
Comprising over 20% of the student body, the graduate 
students contributed over $1.1 million to the almost $5 million 
annual A&S fee budget. 

The budget was annually allocated by Student 





Government Association to its various agencies and bureaus. 

Student Government was traditionally controlled by 
undergraduates, with graduate students occasionally 
occupying a few student senate seats and maybe a cabinet 
position. Graduate students claimed that the undergraduate- 
dominated student government was unresponsive to their 
needs and proposed a separation of graduate students from the 
current SGA. 

"If we don't separate, then student government won't 
look at our concerns," history department graduate student 
Anne Holt said. 

Before the proposed separation. Graduate Students 
United was the only agency dedicated exclusively to graduate 
students' needs. 

GSU's Board of Directors was elected in the Fall 
solely by fellow graduate students. GSU's A&S funding was 
approximately $30,000 annually, a far cry from the $1.1 million 
that they contributed to the $5 million budget. This proved to 
be a major reason for the proposed secession. 

"It is important that we declare ourselves 
autonomous, " GSU member David Stern said. 

The ashes of those problems arose a phoenix, a task 
force created with the help of the Vice President of Student 
Affairs Dr. Jon Dalton. The Committee on Graduate Students 
Concerns was designed to address the concerns of the 
graduate students. 

Its creation came after the first of two constitutional 
conventions in ■which graduate students convened to 
formulate and ratify a constitution and to declare their 
independence from the SGA. 

At the first convention, there w^as much confusion and 
secession was not the unanimous solution.

Continued (from page 239) 
Student Senate President Jennifer Tankersley 
attended the convention to lobby delegates 
against the proposed separation. 

One major problem admitted by the 
graduate students and evident at the 
convention was the lack of time they had for 
such extra-curricular activities as Student 

"We are to blame. Graduate students 
never show up lor anything. We just have too 
many other responsibilities, " Jett Neuman 

The second convention brought 
progress and a compromise. The Congress ol 
Graduate Students ■was formed and its 
constitution ratified. 

Under the SGA proposal, COGS 
would operate as an agency with an annual 
budget ol 11% ol what graduate students 
contribute overall in A&S lees. In addition, a 
separate division of senators was created in the 
Student Senate comprised only ol graduate 
students and known as the Graduate Studies 

division. Under this division there was one 
graduate senator lor every 499 graduate 

Both sides seemed to be pleased with 
this proposal and alter countless hours of 
deliberation, it was finally accepted. 

"Our motto is 'Unity through 
diversity,' and I believe this proposal 
recognizes the graduate students as a distinct 
entity while keeping the entire student 
government together, " Belin said. 

"All this IS certainly prool that we do 
have a lot ol muscle and people are finally 
listening to us, " Holt said. 

Upon reaching this compromise, 
COGS was appropriated $75,000 in the 1993- 
94 fiscal year budget to get their government 
started and plans were underway to renovate 
one ol the old Iraternity houses oil of 
Wildwood Drive to serve as olfices. 

The realignment of the student senate 
was also due to take ellect with the beginning 
ol the new school year in the Fall.

On July 29 FSU lost 
one of its most 
recognizable and avid 
tans, when Fred Miller 
died irom a pulmonary 
embolism at the age of 
38. He was best known 
as "Fred the Head" 
because of the Seminole 
emblem he had painted on his shaved head 
at all sporting events. 

Funeral services reflected Miller's first 
love: Seminole football. His jersey with the 
number 29 and his name hung in memorial. 

Head Coach _^ — 

hiobby oowden 
delivered the 
e u 1 o g y while 
1 o r m e r 
presided over 
the ceremonies. 
"We were 
shocked when 
we got the news 
Fred had died," 
Bowden, who 
coached Miller 
in 1976, said. 
"I'll always 
remember him 
as one of our 

most spirited 

players and alumni. He was a daring and 
courageous football player and a happy 
person to be around. We'll miss him." 

Miller's career at FSU began when he 
accepted a football scholarship here. He 
made an impact in 1972 as a running back, 
sustaining many injuries that sidelined his 
career. When he was moved to the position 
ol linebacker. Miller ran headlong into a 
ball carrier, received a serious concussion 
and was asked to give up his football career. 
"Fred never gave up. He went out for 
cheerleading, made head cheerleader and 
has been The Head' cheerleader ever 
since, "said longtime friend Andy Miller. 

Although his death came suddenly, 
Miller had made his funeral requests 
known. He was cremated and his ashes 
were scattered at Doak Campbell where he 
would forever remain in the hearts and 
minds of Seminole fans.

The Mecca Grill was a 
place where students 
could grab a bite to eat 
beween classes or sip on 
frozen margaritas. It was a 
restaurant Seminoles 
could count on when they 
came to watch a game on a 
big screen television in an 
atmosphere ol fun and tradition. However, 
the Mecca tradition ended after AA years of 
"goodtime" food and less than ayear after the 
newly-designed Mecca Grill w^as born. 

The Mecca was originally a '50's diner run 
by two brothers, Gene and Clyde Blount, who 

bought the Mecca 
in the '70's and 
sold it in the '80's. 
Years later, 
plans started 
forming to create 
a '90's version of 
the Mecca which 
would provide 
customers with 
good service, 
healthier food and 
beverages. The 
Mecca Grill, as it The emptiness of the res- 
was renamed, was taurant shows the unfor- 
transformed from tunate closing of The 
a greasy spoon Mecc a Grill. 

cafeteria into a checkered-tablecloth 
restaurant that ended up losing more money 
than it could afford to stay in business. 

"I loved it here and I tried to make it work," 
Mecca manager and part-owner David 
Maluff said. "I thought it would stay here a 
long time." 

Maluff and partners decided to close the 
restaurant at the end of December, after losing 
$300,000, almost twice the amount they 
invested to create it. 

Maluff believed the Mecca Grill failed 
because the lunch crowd was unable to 
compensate for the losses in evening sales. 

The students, as well as the owners, were 
sad to see the campus eating place go. 

"It's a shame it had to close," student Rich 
Hernandez said.

Superwoman Sandy Ames was like a 
burst ot energy. Ames, a charter member of 
Sigma Sigma Sigma, wore many hats in a 
single day. In addition to being a full time 
student, this junior communication major 
was a disc jockey on WFHT Hot 10L5. 

"I used to work the late night shift; 
however, I just got promoted to the 
weekend shift from 2:00 to 6:00pm," Ames 

Ames used the name Sandy "Stone" on 
the air. She also had an internship at the 
station in advertising sales and 
promotions. While she loved selling and the 
radio business, she did not plan on stopping 

"I could never do the same thing 
everyday. It's )ust not me. I have an idea for 
my own business and one day I plan to make 
it happen," Ames said. 

Making things happen seemed to come 
easy for this lady. Last summer she worked 
for a carnival and made lots of cash. 

"They (the carnival) had a game that 
was the lowest grossing game in the entire 
fair. They were going to get rid ol it but they 
put me on this game to see how it would 
work with someone like me running it. 
Within one weekend I out-grossed the 
entire lair," Ames said. 

Ames' accomplishments did not stop 
there. She held the ofhce of sisterhood 
chairperson for her sorority. She also 
received a sorority scholarship ring for 
earning a 4.0 GPA tor two consecutive 
semesters and has been on the dean's list 
since she arrived at the University. 

Ames also belonged to organizations 
such as The Regional Student Leadership 
Counsel, GAMMA and Golden Key 
National Honor Society. She has actively 
taken part in Golden Key's "Just Say No" 
speech campaign and has helped with anti- 
drug presentations at various middle 
schools in Leon County. 

"You can't live life being scared because 
that's not really living," Ames said. 

Despite her achievements, Ames 
maintained a level head. She credited her 
humbleness to working with the carnival. 
"At the carnival you get dirt under your 
fingernails and you don't get a chance to 
take a shower. People would treat you 
differently. I learned to accept people and 
things for what they are," Ames said. 

Ames would be the first to admit that 
there was still room for growth in the 

"One of my favorite quotes goes like 
this : I'm superior to no man because 
everyone I meet can always teach me 
something, "' Ames said.

It was quite harmless to begin 
with, you had filled out the application and 
sent it back to see what your limit would be 
not realizing that this simple piece ol plastic 
you now held in your hand could do so 
much damage. But now it had happened 
and the damage was done. You were 
walking through the mall minding your 
own business when you had passed by the 
store window and there had been the one 
piece of clothing you needed more than 
anything but how to pay tor it was the 

Betoreyou knew ityou were at the 
counter ready to pay and all you had to do 
was pull outyour credit card. But wait, was 
this piece ol plastic Iriend or foe? 

For many students credit cards 
were a great ■way to buy because ol the pay 
later" terms of the card, but could the credit 
card become a problem later? Yes, it would. 
With annual interest rates varying with 
each card, students often paid more than 
they had expected or had the money to pay 

"I was shocked to find out how 
much my bills were for the month and also 
how many cards I had," senior Misty 
Farro"w said. 

Many students did not realize the 
impact of having more than one or two 
credit cards. Some had Visa, Master Card 
or Discover with annual interest rates of 
around 14% for students with little or no 
credit history. 

"It's too easy charge, I don't realize 
all the damage I'm doing to my bank 
account until I get my Visa bill, " Catherine 
Wright said. 

The credit card and all of its 
privileges may have been appealing to some 
shoppers, but for others it was something to 
stay away from completely. 

"I just don't own a credit card, it's 
that simple, " Laura Webb said. 

Staying away from the magnetic 
piece of plastic w^as hard, but for those ^vho 
remembered that awful day when they 
opened their mailbox and pulled out the 
Visa or Master Card bill for two times the 
amount they had in their checking account 
and the phone call they had to make to mom, 
they pulled that card out of their wallet and 
walking by the same store window tossed 
that card in the trash can.

A recycling office was established 
in the fall to oversee and coordinate all 
recycling efforts on campus. Since then, 
recycling stations had been placed at all the 
major academic buildings. Dumpsters were 
placed between Smith and Salley Halls, 
behind Dorman and Devinney Halls and at 
Degralt Hall which served its residents and 
nearby traternities. Recycling stations were 
placed at each ol the scholarship houses and 
several Greek houses received recycling 
dumpsters from the city. For students, 
recycling accommodations had been made 
for glass, aluminum, and new^spapers. For 
University employees, accomodations had 
been made for cardboard and mixed office 

With this intense recycling 
movement, the University had no problem 
living up to a Florida state mandate that 
made government and public agencies 
recycle at least 30 percent ol their garbage by 
1994. Unfortunately, the movement had to 
overcome a variety of obstacles. 

Recycling bins which were placed 
along campus walkways were used for 
garbage by the students. These boxes were 
eventually removed altogether until 
something better could be done. 

Fraternities and sororities which 
tried to obtain dumpsters from the city could 
not get them because the city distributed all 
that they had to apartment complexes, the 
University and private dormitories. 

"All of our 'mixed recyclables' 
dumpsters were given out to the apartment 
complexes in the area. We won't be able to 
have anymore built until next Fall , " Richard 
Gunnels, Coordinator for the City of 
Tallahassee Recycling, said. 

A committee was formed to lobby 
the University into allocating more funds 
and resources for its recycling program. 
Two different groups of students, as part of 
class projects, organized ongoing statistical 
surveys and questionnaires to encourage 
students to recycle. The Department of 
Psychology monitored the effects of placing 
the actual types of items to recycle over each 
of their respective bins, with the premise of 
prompting people to take action by causing 
people to realize the products they recycled. 

"If the option is there, I will recycle. 
Fm sure there are many tactful ways to 
remedy the recycling problems on campus. I 
think it's come to, and should be, a matter of 
moral judgment to recycle, " Chris Stringer, 
Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity member said.

Known to her students as B.J. 
or Dr. B.J., Brenda Jarmon held open, 
down to earth, flexible classes. 

"I can learn from my students 
and they can learn from me," Jarmon 

Numerous honors have been 
bestowed upon Jarmon, such as 1986 
Academic All American, 1992 
Outstanding Adult Learner, an induction 
to the Job Corps Hall of Fame and an 
appointment as Assistant Professor of the 
School of Social Work. 

At age 14, Jarmon had her first 
child aftergetting kicked out ol school . At 
16, she had her second child and recalled 
her parents making it clear that her 
children were her responsibility. Near 
age 18, she decided not to spend the rest 
of her life pulling out chicken guts, which 
happened to be her occupation at the time. 
Jarmon received her GED and took a 
secretarial position at Delaware State 
College in 1970. Jarmon took advantage 
of the two free classes each semester that 
came with her job. She acquired enough 
hours to earn her Associate of Arts in 
1981. She completed her Bachelor of 
Science in Science and Business 
Administration with a minor in 
accounting in 1982. 

After 19 years of night school, 
she became Dr. Jarmon through the 
Florida Endowment Fund. 

She started her dissertation 
called "Targeting the 'Real' Economic 
Cost of Teen Pregnancy: A Skill Building 
Approach for Early Adolescence. " The 
research addressed improving early 
adolescence by problem solving/ decision 
making skills related to peer pressure. 
Skipping school, drug and alcohol abuse, 
and early sexual involvement were 
problems she targeted by building self 
esteem and internal focus of control. 

In the long run, Jarmon wanted to use 
the model to enhance the school system 
and offer classes to young students. 
Jarmon said there also must be an 
reeducation of parents . 

Jarmon's goal was to teach 
adolescents how to think, not what to 

"Everyone needs 
encouragement or a pat on the back once 
in awhile, many kids don't get that. If I 
reach just one child, then my life has not 
been in vain," Jarmon said.

Local bands and 
businesses came to the 
aid of the vandalized 
student-run radio 
station WVFS (V-89), 
which was housed on 
the university's 
campus in the 
Ditfenbaugh building . 

On Dec. 30, Charles Franklin walked into 
V-89 and began destroying over $12,000 
worth ot radio equipment. Franklin was 
arrested and later released after a 
psychiatric evaluation. 

According to Aimee Scally, public 
relations director and announcer at the 
station, Franklin w^alked into the control 
booth, told the disc jockeys he was an 
engineer and began bashing reel to reels, 
CD players, carts and other radio 
equipment with a metal bar. He leh a large 
dent in the main control board. The damage 
left the station in a financial bind, 
considering the university had no funds to 
give them. However, what the university 
could not provide the community could. 

Local clubs such as Yianni's, The Grand 
Finale and The Main Event raised over 
$5,000 for the station. Many bands 
performed for free in order to get the 
station back on its teet. Some of the bands 
that performed for the fundraiser were 
Shatterposts, Gruel, and Insect Fear. 

Although the station was far from 
reaching its goal, everyone at the station 
seemed to be pleased by the amount of 
support they received from the community. 
With a somewhat functioning console V-89 
was still committed to being the "Voice of 
Florida State."

Former student body president and 
current law student Sean Pittman continued 
his road to success by assuming a seat on the 
Florida Board of Regents. 

Appointed by Governor Lawton Chiles, 
Pittman served as the single student regent 
representing 187,000 students from the 
state's nine universities. Through this 
appointment, the governor hoped to work 
on increasing access to Florida's colleges 
and universities. 

Regarding his responsibilities, Pittman 
said they were the same as the other regents, 
with one exception. 

"I have added responsibilities being 
accountable to the 187,000 students in the 
system," Pittman said. 

He hoped to provide leadership on the 
board concerning critical issues affecting 
students in the system. His appointment 
especially a ffected his school. 

"Each university pushes its students to 
apply for the position. Administrators lobby 
for their students. I believe my position will 
allow me to be a good representative, " 
Pittman said. 

As for experience leading up to this 
position, Pittman was well-qualified. Alter 
serving in the student senate his freshman 
and sophomore years, he went on to be 
elected vice president and president of the 
student body. Upon graduation in 1990, 
Pittman was chairman of the Florida 
Student Association for two years and 
executive director for one. This role allowed 
him to work directly with the Board of 

Since August 1991, Pittman had worked 
as a supervisor at the Leach Center. He was 
also selected as the Florida regional director 
for the National Black Law Student 
Association and completed a law internship 
for the Florida House of Representatives. 

'Sean Pittman is one of the most 
experienced and concerned student regents 
I've ever w^orked with. The students can be 
truly assured that their future this year is in 
the most capable of hands," Pieter Swart, 
Director of Governmental Relations of the 
FSA said.

What did a 
steaming pot of coffee, 
a highlighter pen and 
Vivarin all hold in 
common? These were 
components of the 
perennial all nighters 
commonly pulled by 
college students 

Whether it was a lack of preparation or 
just trying to get in all of the extra studying 
possible, students often went sleepless in 
order to prepare for an exam. 

"I wake up early, get a bunch of candy and 
bottled water and stay in the library until my 
test," Erika Grant said. "I wait until the last 
minute so it will be Iresh in my mind." 

Some students believed in studying early 
and getting their beauty sleep. 

"I figure if it's 1:00 a.m. and I haven't 
finished, I'm not going to learn it, so I just go 
to bed," early childhood education major 
Terri Tindall said. 'I'd rather go to bed and 
get up early." 

Students often did not intend to wait until 
the last minute, sometimes they just got 
bogged down with other responsibilities such 
as work or extracurricular activities. 

" I need my sleep. I've only slept about five 
hours each night because everything seems to 
pile on top of each other," senior Mark 
Brenneman said. "There's test after project 
after test. As soon as I start to recover, it 
seems to start all over again. " 

Staying up all night to finish studying 
for a test or a big project seemed to be 
a trend for most students. Photo by

Aaaaaah ! A 
deep, peaceful sleep at 
last. All of a sudden it 
came. THE SOUND. 
The shrill of the fire 
alarm ran through the 
halls as my roommate 
and I dreamily 
wandered out of our 
room and outside into 
the bitter cold night. Gradually, I focused in 
on my surroundings and I realized that I 
was standing in the middle of a parking lot 
with several hundred people in my pajamas. 
I had forgotten to grab the robe, \vhich I 
had strategically placed by the door, as I 
left. However, I wasn't the only half 

dressed fool by the roadside. Girls in 
nightgowns and guys in boxer shorts sat 
impatiently waiting for the fire engines to 
arrive, while people drove by laughing. I'll 
give them something to laugh about I 
thought to myself. I bet they wouldn't like 
it very much if they were in my slippers. 

I wish I had been prepared like 
some others. Equipped with pillows, 
blankets and teddy bears, some of my 
fellow dormmates formed a circle and sang 
camp songs and told jokes. I'm glad 
someone could see the humor in all of this. 
It seemed as though that stupid alarm went 
off just when my head hit the pillow. It's not 
as though I got enough sleep as it was, but 
to stand outside for 45 minutes in subarctic 
degree temperatures for "precautionary 
reasons " was a bit ridiculous. 

Almost on cue, the fire trucks 
came to a screeching halt and little men in 
bright yellow outfits raced into the 
building. They inspected each floor and as 
I had anticipated, found nothing. Typical. 
Oh well, at least we were safe. 

We wandered back to our rooms 
and as I closed the door, I thought to myself 
was what I really wanted to do was strangle 
the person who pulled the alarm.

alleged fire. Pranks by students led to

There were literally hundreds of 
them available in the beginning. As theyears 
dragged on, a final decision had to be made. 
For some this was a realization, for others, 
those who were affectionately referred to as 
"career students," it was even an 

College majors were a fickle subject 
for many. A major was changed by someone, 
at some school, every day of the year. For 
some, interest just changed from one subject 
to another. 

"My original major was Business 
Management, but after taking a few classes, 
I became bored with it. I realized that I could 
never make it my life's work. Now I'm an 
English major and I m much happier.. .for 
now, " sophomore Melissa Walters said. 

Others switched for academic 
reasons and had no other choice because 
their grade poi nt average had deteriorated so 
they w^ere limited to majors with no GPA 

"I was a pre-med major but at the 
time I was undisciplined and didn't take my 
studies seriously. After a while my grades 
were not good enough to stay in the major," 
nursing major Michelle David said. 

In some cases, students took 
prerequisite classes for intended majors and 
did poorly, which prevented entry into the 
major. Many found themselves left with 
useless credits once their major changed or 
were left with the option of only receiving a 
minor in the field. 

"When I arrived at college I was 
determined to get my degree in biology so 
that I could go on to medical school. By the 
end of my sophomore year I was well on my 
way having accumulated many credits in the 
major. At the beginning of my junioryear my 
interests and career goals changed radically 
and I changed to anthropology and chose to 
minor in biology instead," junior Melissa 
Ferguson said. 

Many schools placed restrictions 
on registration, limiting it to only those who 
declared their major to be in that college or 
school. The restrictions prevented others 
from filling up classes and prolonged 
graduation times. 

As there were for every rule, there 
existed exceptions to this one. Although 
many changed their majors, some had set 
career goals and stuck with their original 

"I've known that I've wanted to 
teach since eighth grade. I would never 
consider changing my major to anything 
besides Elementary Eklucation," sophomore 
Tracy Henningfeld said.

Almost every college within the 
University had them and required 
students to take them a semester before 
graduation. From as lew as ten to as many 
as hundreds of students applied for and 
eventually took them. They \vere 

The purpose of internships were 
to gain valuable experience through 
hands-on training. The internships paid 
anywhere from nothing to minimum 
wage or a small stipend to a semester's 
tuition. Still, students held the internship 
program high on their list gaining 
experience needed tor future careers. It 
also opened the door for future 
employment with those particular 

Two of the internship programs 
which had high participation was the 
Eklucation and Criminology departments. 

"The internships are generally 
taken during the last year ol the student's 
academic career. That way they don't 
have to come back to take any classes, " 
Dr. Patricia Green-Powell said. 

The educational program 
included between 600 and 700 
participants during fall and spring 
semesters. The sites were outside of the 
Tallahassee area, a condition of the 
internship program. The length of the 
program varied. 

"The minimum a student can 
take is ten weeks, " Green- Powell said. 

Another internship program that 
received many participants was in the 
Criminology department. Those who 
opted for an internship totaled 185 for the 
summer term alone. These students were 
part ol the largest program in the country. 
Students received jobs throughout the 
state of Florida and had the opportunity to 
travel overseas. 

Lorene Nagy had the 
opportunity to w^ork in London. 

"That's where our program 
differs from other programs. Students can 
apply what they learn to the real world 
what was learned in the classroom , " Nagy

No, it was not a mathematical derivative 
from physics class. It was the blood alcohol content 
of a Kappa Alpha pledge after a party at the 
fraternity's house. He was discovered lying on a 
couch in the house basement turning blue. 
According to paramedics he was very near death. 
A sober brother cleared a \vad of chewing tobacco 
which had blocked the his airway and then 
administered C.P.R., almost assuredly saving his 

This prompted the suspension of Kappa 
Alpha for two years as -well as all fraternity 
pledging activities pending further investigation. 
Days later a new alcohol policy was introduced to 

The new policy, penned mainly by Vice 
President for Student Affairs Dr. Jon Dalton, 
took a very hard-lined approach to the ethical 
issues relating to the consumption of alcohol. It 
emphasized education and alternatives to alcohol 
and stipulated that non-alcoholic beverages must 
be served simultaneously at University sponsored 

Every aspect of the new policy resounded 
the need for alternatives and there were strict 
constraints put on the length of time that alcohol 
could be served at University sponsored events. It 
also recognized the need for those abusing alcohol 
to seek counseling, whether it be a student or 
faculty member. The policy subjected offenders to 
disciplinary action by the University. 

"I think that everyone is responsible for 
their actions and should be punished accordingly if 
they go too far. I agree with it 100 percent," 
sophomore Kevin Donahue said. 

Others were not as receptive. Reaction 
from the Greek community was mixed because the 
policy infringed upon some of their philanthropic 
events held at local bars and night clubs. The policy 
strictly prohibited enticement to events by offering 

" I 'm pleased with the policy itself, it's very 
thorough. The alcohol policy from my sorority's 
national office is more harsh than the University's. 
The only problem I have is the addendum to it 
requiring all Greeks to inform the administration 
where and when we are having an event so that 
they can 'drop by and observe' as they've said," 
Panhellenic President Julie Dunn said. 

The policy did not stipulate that students 
would be subjected to disciplinary action by their 
peers in the Student Supreme Court. Instead, it 
said that anyone abusing the policy would be 
subject to "University disciplinary action. " 

"I agree with the general intent of the 
policy, not the way it came about. I have no 
problem working with the administration to iron 
out these differences and would be happy to do so, 
Student Senate President Jennifer Tankersley

"It has been said that by the time 
students reahze their potential as citizens 
they have become graduates. Tonight, as ■we 
ring these bells, it is our hope to change that 
perception," University law student Tracy 
Newman said. 

This was the message delivered to 
President-elect Bill Clinton on behalf of the 
nation's college students. 

Newman was one of four National 
Student Directors for the Belb for Hope: 
Uniting America \< Campiuiej events taking 
place locally on the Union Green. Each of the 
four National Student Directors attended 
universities ^vithin the State University 
System. Clinton held a special place in his 
heart for Florida since he had such a strong 
base of support spearheaded by Lieutenant 
Governor Buddy McKay, the Florida 
chairman of the Clinton campaign. 

Picture-perfect skies and balmy 
temperatures set the mood for the estimated 
1500 students who enjoyed such local talent 
as Bill Wharton and the Ingredients, the 
Shatterposts and the Woodpeckers. Free 
refreshments donated by local companies 
were served by volunteers from the Student 
Senate. The event also served as a fundraiser 
for V-89, the University's radio station, 
w^hich had been the target of vandalism. 

From Tallahassee to Topeka, 
Wyoming to Washington D.C., the events 
surrounding the kick-off of four days of 
inaugural festivities were wide in variety. 
They ranged from ice cream socials to day- 
long concerts, not unlike the ones held on the 
Mall in Washington D.C. The day s climax 
came locally at 6:00 p.m. when University 
President Dale Lick was joined on stage by 
prominent campus leaders in the ringing of a 
historic bell. The bell was used over 80 years 
ago to summon students to meals at the 
Florida State College for Women, the 
University's institutional predecessor. 

Simultaneously, bells were rung by 
students at hundreds of college campuses 
around the country, by U.S. Ambassadors at 
embassies around the world, by astronauts 
aboard the Space Shuttle Endem'or and by the 
new first and second families in the nation's d'- •' 
capital. The message resounding in the bells' m'^ 
chimes w^as that of hope and unity which was J^ -^ 
exemplified by Republican leadership 
participating alongside the new Democratic 
president-elect in the day's festivities. 

"I feel that the most rewarding 
aspect o't BelU w^as the fact that we were able 
to showcase our talents in a national arena , ' 
Al Dominguez said.

"Make your bed! No! You 
cannot paintyour room black! Forthelast 
time, no posters on the walls!" Mom 
yelled. For those who lived by these 
restrictions, decorating a dorm room 
served as a pleasurable rebellion. No one, 
except one's roommate, could complain 
about the new Guns 'n Roses poster, the 
black comforter complete with zebra 
sheets or the pile of dirty laundry tucked 
neatly away under the bed. 

"The quality of dorm life is what 
you make it," Kersten Cortes, former 
Deviney resident said, "So dress it up!" 

The first step in the dorm room 
transformation process was to make a trip 
to the local discount store. Crates of all 
colors and sizes were a necessity in 
creating space. Stacked in corners and in 
closets, they held held books, tapes, shoes 
or food. 

Concrete blocks could be used to 
make shelves, but they were often 
supports for bed frames, giving a foot or 
more space for storage. The ultimate 
space-maker was the loft. Raising the bed 
four feet off the floor gave one room to 

The second step in the process 
was comfort. Waking to bare feet on cold 
tile was avoided by cutting carpet to fit the 
floor plan of the room. Rugs, -whether 
spray-painted, woven, old or new, were 
easy replacements. Some tiled their 
rooms, sacrificing comfort for color and 
easy clean-ups. 

"If something spills all I have to 
do is wipe it up," Annette Anderson said. 

The third step was color. Walls 
were a prime target in decorating, and they 
could make or break a prize-winning 
room. Contact paper substituted for wall 

It a statement was to be made on 
the walls, spray paint was the best 
solution. Peace symbols and hearts were 
popular favorites. Feather dusting the 
walls also created a desired look. 

Plywood tool racks made handy 
wall fillers. Painting them added color, 
and they made space for hanging keys, 
pots, pans, towels or jewelry. 

"It was easier than keeping stuff 
under my bed and Dad had all of the 
supplies in the basement," Jim Snyder, a 
Cawthon Hall resident, said. 

Decorating dorm rooms was an 
education in itself, precisely the excuse 
made to Mom w^hen she saw^ the credit 
card bill.

Over 60,000 fans overHow the 
Doak Campbell Stadium and wail m unison 
to the traditional war chant begun by the 
Marching Chiefs. Seminole cheerleaders, 
lining the field, raise the volume to 
maximum potential. An electric surge of 
pride pluses through the hearts of young and 
old alike. The synchronized motion of hands 
and the unison of voices call Chief Osceola 
and his horse, Renegade, out of the tunnel 
and onto the playing field. Renegade gallops 
the length of the f'leld while Chief Osceola, 
waves the spear high above his head. The 
crowd escalates to hysteria and rises to cheer 
on their mascot. Game captains and referees 
leave the field. Renegade then tears to 
midfield, rears and Chief Osceola thrusts 
the flaming spear into the Seminole Head. 
This pregame tradition began 25 years ago 
■with alumni, Bill Durham. 

Durham, a 1965 graduate, created 
the idea of this mascot while in college, but 
said he could not spur enough excitement to 
begin the drive for a suitable horse and rider 
until Bobby Bowden became coach. "We 
were and are very serious about Chief 
Osceola being a respectful representation of 
the Seminole Indians. For that very reason, 
I gained permission from the Seminole 
Chief, Chief Howard Tommie, for Chief 
Osceola to ride. In fact, "the first costume 
was made by the ladies of the Seminole 
Reservation in 1978, " Durham said. 

Not only were the cloak and 
moccasins authentic, but around the rider's 
neck hung a unique artifact in Seminole 
history. This silver necklace sparkled with 
countless charms, Spanish coins collected 
by the Seminole Indians. In preparation for 
the pregame event, a grease-based makeup 
was rubbed into Chief Osceola's skin to give 
it a reddish tint. White and garnet stripes 
w^ere painted on his cheeks, Seminole style. 
For the final touch, a gold spear was painted 
beginning at the chin and continuing over 
the bridge of the nose and ending in a point 
at the forehead. 

Renegade's rider was Allen 
Durham. In training to be Chief Osceola

year after next, was Andy Taylor. "We don't 
take anybody ^vho doesn't know how to ride 
a horse. Those applying must also have at 
least a 3.0 GPA, " Durham said. In making 
the final selection, applicants were required 
to pass an oral interview. This was a 
necessity since Osceola receives a lot of 
attention from the media. At the games 
separate groups represented Florida State: 
". . .our wonderful 300 piece band known as 
the Marching Chiefs, our football team and 
our cheering squad, but there is only one 
Chief Osceola. He must be articulate and 
have a good command of the English 
language," Durham said. 

Once a part of the Renegade team, 
work began right away. The present rider, 
apprentice, and team members helped care 
for Renegade. This included daily feeding, 
brushing, and walking of the horse. 

This obvious dedication to the 
image of Florida State could be seen upon 
visiting Mr. Durham's office. Covering the 
walls, with not so much as two fingers width 
between each frame, were pictures of Chief 
Osceola and the Renegade team. The first 
spear ever to strike the turf rests in the 
corner. One of the largest hangings and 
most eye-catching was a rubbing of 
Osceola's tombstone in South Carolina. 
Given to Durham as a gift by Jud Spencer, 
the handing reads, "OSCEOLA. . .Patriot 
and Warrior, Died at Fort Moultrie 
January 30th, 1838." 

"We are very sensitive about the 
respectful representation of the Seminole 
Indians," said Durham. "Local 
businessmen sometimes want to use Chief 
Osceola and Renegade to advertise their 
products. I absolutely will not prostitute it 
out. Chief Osceola and Renegade only 
appear at Seminole football events. " The 
Seminoles have never voiced any 
complaints to Durham. 

The University has recognized 
Durham as a member of the Golden Chiefs, 
"an organization of alumni and Iriends 
whose individual loyalty and devotion has 
been expressed by a history of outstanding 
generosity," read the plaque which hung 
above Durham's desk.

Running from meeting to meeting, taking classes, 
helping others and working part time were some things that 
kept a person busy. For junior Kelly McCabe, it was a way 
of life. r4 

"I try to focus my energies on helping other people. V 
It's very rewarding to hear someone say thank you," 
McCabe said. 

Her service began when she became a brother of 
Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity in the Fall of 1990. Since . '1 
then, she's held the office of Vice President of Service and c 
President for the fall of 1993. During her her stint as vice 
president, she also chaired the March of Dimes service 
project and helped raise approximately $2,900. In the spring, 
that sum was doubled to $4,930. 

"I w^as extremely proud ol the hard work and 
dedication of the brothers (AOQ)," McCabe. 

She also became a member of the Collegiate Board 
for March of Dimes and was a campus organization director. 

"I took a tour of the neonatal unit at Tallahassee 
Memorial Regional Medical Center. I thought it would be 
incredibly depressing, but it was the most amazing thing I've 
ever seen. The babies are so fragile, yet they are fighting so 
hard to stay alive. Those kids have more strength and 
courage. We owe it to them to make the world a better place 
so they know that their fight for life was worth it," McCabe 

In addition to her dedication to the March of Dimes, 
McCabe also ^vorked as assistant director for InfoOuest 
book services. 

"It was an exchange program started by AOQ a few 
years ago. I worked v^^ith Damon Brown and Jenny 
Patterson (AOQ brothers) to expand the program. It's a 
worthwhile for those who utilize the service, " McCabe said. 

The Art History major planned to graduate in the 
spring of 1994. The search for graduate schools continued as 
she planned to further into Art Administration or Museum 

Her immediate plans were focused around the 

"Being president of this organization is a 
tremendous responsibility. I would like to see us develop 
some our own original projects. Our national program of 
emphasis is AIDS and I would like to see us really get 
involved in the fight. Whether it be through support, 
counseling or education, I believe we could help a lot of 
people," McCabe said. 

AVelly McCabe was given the "I Love March of Dimes 
" award by AOQ. P/^oto by Nancy Floyd.

JT (^1 iJCLyO the most recognized part of the book 
was the advertisement section. National vendors spent 
hundreds of advertising dollars towards the creation of this 
book. Whether looking for a new car, a place to get your 
notes copied, a styling salon to get your hair and nails done 
or looking for a place to shop for nev^ fall and spring 
fashions, this was the placeyou could find it. Without their 
patronage and the generosity of the Student Government 
Association, the program would have suffered. A great 
deal of thanks was given to our patrons. 

Adjacent to the advertising section was the student 
index. Alphabetically listed, looking for a triend, loved 
one, ex-boyfriend or granddaughter was easy as 1 -2-3 with 
this handy section of the book. 

Finally, the closing completed the section. It 
recapped current events, both controversial and joyful, so 
they could be remembered in the years to come. 

Sit back and take a look at the Bold Headline i\i.

Something To That 

I always thought this would be one of the best parts oi the 
book to write, but when I think about it, it's actually quite sad. Three 
yearbooks have been put to rest and I teel as though an important 
chapter in my life is coming to a close. I'm taking so many memories 
with me as I leave my desk and our tiny office. 

I've had the pleasure of working with some of the finest 
people in the publication industry, both at conventions and on 
campus. I can't imagine what life would have been without the trials 
and tribulations that went with creating this book. 

There are many people that I owe a debt ol gratitude to. 

Mom, Dad and Cathy- Thanks lor always supporting my 
decision to do this "one more year. " My goal of being editor finally 
came true and I think I did pretty well. You guys are the best family 
anyone could ask for. I love you. Go Seminoles! ! 

Rebecca- You've been more than just an adviser. Who else 
would take such good care of a student who almost broke their neck 
skiing? You've always gone above and beyond the call of duty. Thank 
you! ! You're such a good secretary. Just kidding. 

Steven (aka "Stevie-Baby " "Stevemeister " "Steve-a-nno") 
Wallace - You're the most awesome rep. in the world ! It's been great. 

Laura Widmer- Even though you live far away and had no 
time to spare, you still managed to pay us a visit so we could get our 
feet off the ground. You're terrific! ! 

Tracy H.- You're one of the most tolerant roommates and 
friends in the world. How you put up \vith me these last few months 
I'll never know, but I'm thankful you did. I promise it's going to get 

John H.- As always, thanks for the late night phone calls. 
You're definitely a bright spot in this crazy life of mine. 

Joe and Keith-Meeting the two of you was one of the best 
things that has happened to me in quite sometime. Thank you for a 
summer to remember. 

Joanna- To no surprise, the sports section is absolutely 
beautiful because you are an extremely talented individual and 

everything you touch practically turns to gold. You did a tremendous 
job and I truly appreciate all of your help! ! 

Kristin (aka "Little Miss Auburndale," "Dizzy")- "You go 
girl! You go! "You did such a great job ! ! Thankyou for the hard^A'ork, 
dedication and ,most of all, the support you gave me. You'll always 
have a special place in my heart. 

Dody- You are one of the most determined people I've ever 
met. Thanks for sticking with it! Your smiles, jokes and laughter always 
brightened my day. 

Alison- We had a really great time in Dallas. Was I really 
driving that fast around those corners? Were %ve on a mission to find the 
Hard Rock or what? I guess you could call us persistent. 

Nancy- WOOOSH. That's all I should have to say ! ! Sheldon 
really was from Zimbabwe wasn't he? Hard to believe. Thanks for 
allowing me to dump on you. 

Alicia, Heather, Candace, Beth, Charlie, Todd and Meredith- 
You guys deserve the writer's choice awards. Meeting all of those 
deadlines w^ere hard, but you came through with flying colors. Thanks 
for your hard work! 

Robert- Even though I bothered you too often, I appreciate 
the fact that you helped out. You did a great job with portraits and all 
the other marketing stuff you managed to pull off. You're a good friend. 

Laura- 'Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore. " Isn't 
that the truth? Could I please have a parka? The whole Ne\A' York trip 
is such a blur, well MOST of it anyway. Thank God we learned how 
to develop and print pictures in the "Bat Cave!" I don't know what I
