Wicked West

West Residence Hall allowed the Residence Hall Association and Student Union Board to feature
something new this year — WICKED WEST. West dormitory was transformed into a haunted house
that was fun and spooky. While people were inside screaming, others came out shaken up. On the way
up the stairs, people would jump out at you. On the third floor, they featured an operating table
prepared for patients. When it was all over, everyone was able to go to the second floor to have
refreshments and bob for apples. All had fun!

Students took time out of their busy schedules to make creepy decorations to hang around the
haunted house. Some found spooky masks, while others hung a sign displaying what was to come.

Heroic Theme

"Heroes" was the theme for Elon's Homecoming 1989. Many alumni returned to
campus during the weekend, excited to see old friends and "Ole Elon. " And homecom-

they defeated Gardner Webb.

The heroes theme brought out many inspiring thoughts and dreams to the or-

Organizations selected heroes that ranged from astronauts to mailmen to parents

It s a Family Affair

Parents Weekend was on September 29, 30, and October 1 . This Parents Weekend
was different from any other. Elon had a Southern pig pickin' instead of the dance at the
Burlington Country Club. It was a success. Many families had a good time together
eating, drinking, and getting old-time photos taken.

Parents still had the opportunity to walk around campus, look at the sculpture exhibit,
and meet with professors.

The talent show was the highlight of the weekend for many parents and children. The
emcee was comical and the acts entertaining.

Maureen Dougherty, Director of Student Activities, is in charge of College Coffee. She
says that it is more developed this year. The coffees are "more programmatic" since most
deal with a theme — such as, international, study abroad, blood drives, and political. Ac-
cording to Dougherty, they "take themes that have a national, local, and college concern."

People should look forward to these coffees since they are a great way to spend time out
of the classroom.

Happy Holidays from Elon

Every holiday season is started out with the luminaries in front of Alamance. This tree
and sidewalk lighting attracts both Elon students and the community.

ROTC sets up the luminaries every year, showing the Christmas spirit, so everyone
can enjoy this night at Elon.

This year WGH Piedmont aired the event on the 1 1 :00 p.m. show. The Rev. Richard
McBride led the audience in song while musicians played. Carols were sung by the
audience and hot chocolate was served to warm everyone up.

Elon's Fine Arts Center has been growing ever since its beginning in 1987. The building has
made it possible for Elon to host a variety of cultural events. These events range from student
productions to speakers that the Liberal Arts Forum sponsors.

Elon's Fine Arts building is "home " for the Music, Communication, and Drama departments.

The music students are able to get away and work in the practice rooms while communica-
tion students use the television production studio.

Both departments have played host to a number of productions. This fall, South Pacific was
featured by drama students and the Art Department. Communication students direct shows
ranging from open forums on controversial topics to the College Bowl.

The building gives students the chance to work in all the art styles from paint to clay to voice
and video. The Fine Arts Center strives to offer a diverse mix of the arts to Elon students, faculty,
and the surrounding community.

many speakers the Liberal Arts Forum brought to

The Fine Arts building has been a showcase for local artists and students alike. The Tri-State
Sculptures Exhibition was displayed this year during most of the fall.

This collection of works from sculptures in Morth Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia
showed a wide variety of techniques, styles, materials, and ideas, according to Mike Sanford.
Mike Sanford is both an exhibition coordinator and art professor at Elon.

Also in the fall, a student art show was held at Baxter House. This sparked an over-whelming
student interest with over 200 entries. Kirsten Stump along with Michael Gaffigan helped to
make this student show possible. Students plan to have more shows like this one in the near

When students have a big exam or a project due — where do they go to study and get their
work done? After getting any needed information from the library, most students decide to go
back to their rooms. "I've got everything I need right there, " stated one student. Some other
study spots around Elon's campus are; the library (the main floor for "social" studying and the
basement for "serious" studying), second floor Alamance, the lounges around campus, and
even the soundproof rooms in the Fine Arts Center and WSOE (Elon's radio station). If you've
got that term paper to write or that major exam to study for, the best thing to do is lock yourself in
your room, make some coffee, and unplug the telephone. Sometimes this is the only way you
can get your work done!

Elon prides itself on dedication to excellence. The diverse faculty and student body make
Elon special. The faculties' dedication and interest in students are aspects of Elon's academics
that sets it apart from other schools. The ability to know the professors helps students to com-
municate with their professors more.

One program, still fairly new at Elon, is the Elon Teaching Fellows. And this year the Leader-
ship Fellows was added. This program strives to draw students with strong leadership skills to
Elon's campus. Elon's continuing growth, positive outlook, and dedication among students and
faculty will bring the college into the nineties with great potential for the future.

College academics Is not just notebooks and pens ... it includes, among other things, lab
work, internships, study abroad, and tutoring in the Learning Resources Center.

Elon offers internships in all majors which can include television and radio stations, museums
and parks, and on-campus work study.

The LRC, the writing center, and Career Services are all places students can go to get some
extra help or some advice with papers, projects, or finding the right job.

Elon also offers Job Fairs throughout the year. These fairs allow students to get a jump on
interviewing, have resumes finished, and meet with companies that pertain to their field.

Computer labs are readily available to Elon students, and they are located in Alamance and
Mooney buildings. Each lab boasts more than 30 computers.

There are a number of ways that students can get ahead at Elon since there are many op-
portunities available to them. The education we are receiving at Elon will help us greatly when we
are ready to tackle the "real world."

From London to the rest of Europe, traveling
abroad is the way to go. Either going for a semester
or just for winter term, England is a fantastic way to
see everything. The groups travelled to Dover, Ox-
ford, Stonehenge, Stratford-CJpon-Avon, and the
Roman Baths. Other countries included Scotland
and Holland.

The semester in England involves a lot more trav-
elling — one can go to Paris, Munich, Barcelona,
Rome, Athens, and even Berlin. Many fall semester
students flew to Berlin and got a piece of the Berlin
Wall — Gina Finelli says, "it was incredible, to be
able to be there exactly one month after the wall first
was cracked . . . what joy and spirit we all felt that day
we became part of history as we chipped pieces off
the wall."

There is so much to do and see in Europe, no one
should let this opportunity of a semester or winter
term fly by them.

fantastic trip. This group was in Costa Rica during
it's Presidential Campaign. The group was able to
take part in briefings at the Costa Rican Foreign Min-
istry and U.S. Embassy. The students attended
classes and were able to hear outside speakers. The
group also got to take in the San Jose night life, daily
excursions, a mountain trip, and the Caribbean
coast. These students also had the pleasure in
spending a month living with Cosa Rican families.
