transition is made, bridging the gap between adolescence and adulthood.
Calls to parents become more like calling a friend (except when you ask
for money). Classes become more rewarding as bonds form between
professors and fellow students. New friendships are made, and as time

Student Life

rom the moment the year began, there
was never a dull moment. With choices such
as participating in an organization, being a
part of a winning team, or just plain hang-
ing out with friends, there was always
somethingfor everybody.

For those who lived and breathed on
the 'wild side, "the Neon Moon opened its
doors to those who wanted to come and jam
to such bands as Dillion Fence and The
Connells. And for those who wanted to be
down right crazy, there was always Funk
Night" at the Lighthouse.

Cheering sporting events was another
favorite pastime of the Elon student body.
From football to basketball to baseball, there
was always an exciting game to be watched.

All in all, Elon provided something for
those of every perspective.

entej-ed the stadium on Homecoming Day. The parade beforehand at-

turned out to cheer their Fightin team to victory. The loud cheats and
pumped-up team did just that — making the day twice as exciting. A
highlight of the day was the crowning of Homecoming Queen Michelle

iewedjrom all different perspectives,
Elon College is a place where new possibili-
ties and friendships spying to life. From near
and far, people comefom different back-
grounds not only to become stiideiits, but to
be part of the Elon co?nmunity.

Each student at Elon stands out as an
individual, and adds their own unique
qualities to the lives of others. Not only does
the small college atmosphere provide the
chance to form lasting relationships, it also
provides the chance to share a unique bond
with the Elon faculty.

'onors Programs

Many students are rewarded with scholarships for their outstanding academic
achievement in high school and success in various cojnpetitions with other students.
There are three types of Honors programs: Honors Fellows, Leadership Fellows and
Teaching Fellows.

The Honors Fellows are chosen through competitions which include interviews and
written essays that respond to a given lecture. The Leadership Fellows are obviously
chosen for leadership qualities exhibited in high school and their potential to serve as
leaders at Elon. The Teaching Fellows are those students who have proven they have
what it takes to be a great teacher for the state of North Carolina.

The reward ranges this year from $500 per year to full four-year scholarships. These
students worked hard to get what they have earned and Elon has reason to be proud.

Ho Ho HO) The Stress We Know

Many students on campus have at one time or another experienced the six-lettered
dirty word . . . STRESS!.'.'.' The breaking point is at exam time. It is that time of the
semester when it seems every professor is convinced that his/her class is the only class you
are taking. Henceforth, everything that has been covered from day one is on the exam!
Crazy thoughts enter ones mind when this occurs. One student in particular went to the
Elon Pantry to buy some junk food in preparation for an all-nighter. When he arrived
at the stop light, the individual decided the best thing to do would he to keep going past
the Pantry and head for the beach. What beach did not matter. He eventually turned the
car around . . . after he had gotten about 20 miles down the road. This is a commoji
symptom ofO. S. (aka overly stressed). This particular student carried it out further than
what most of us do; we just dream about it. In the end however, we all realize that stress
or no stress . . . it was well worth it.

LOOK CLOSELY under the bench ...It
finally snowed! We had one fake alarm. In
fact, area schools were closed a7id certain Elon
professors were preparing not to come in the
next day. Everyone was laughing the next
day about how everyone in the areas (and
the South) panicked and shut down schools
and businesses when the word "snow" is
mentioned Just when we were all about to
give up, we were blessed with the white stuff
— 1 1/2 inches — plus ice. The ice we did
not need. It didnt stay around for long, but it
did scare the area schools into closing the
following Monday. Guilford Comity Schools
shut down completely and Alamance
County/Burlington City were on one to two
hour delays. A lot of northern students found
it funny that schools close when two inches of
snowfalls on the ground in the south. Not
only do we provide an outstanding education
to our northern students, but we provide a
great deal of entertauiment durmg the
winters, too.

The Drive for Land

Habitat for Humanity builds homes. But how can they build homes
for deserving families if they do not have any land? This year Habitat
was faced with this problem.

The members knew that the only way they coidd get land would be if a
person in the community donated the land to them. How does a group get
someone to part with a tract of land? The answer Habitat came up with
was publicity. They decided to call the press and tell them what they were
doing. They even slept outside in the cold to prove how dedicated they
were. For three days, students and faculty members showed their support.
They brought their own boxes and slept inf'ont of Alamance. Each night
the numbers of people grew. By the third night , there was approximately
40 people sleeping in boxes.

Finally after meetings with the Town Board of Aldermen and sleeping
in boxes, their prayers were answered. Ernest Kouryjr. donated a plot of
land to Habitat so they could build a home in the Ballpark community.
All their hard work and time paid off. Congratulations Habitat!

SEX is something most college students do at one time or another. But
with the rising number of sexually transmitted deceases (STDs) such as
AIDS and HerpeSy most students have become wiser and use protection
when engaging in sexual intercourse, A week has been set aside arid
designated "Safe Sex Week. " Condoms are passed out to students and
information is distributed telling students about the risks cf having

unprotected sex, ''''''K-■^:^:\y:y■,.

Everyone has heard that abstinence is the best protection apuinst
STDsy but most students DO engage in sexual activities. If yotfre going
to be sexually active ^ the safest measure is toweara(:ondom. It just might

Everyday at approximately 12:30-4:00 students (both male and female) rush to
their television sets. Why? Because it is important to them to see ifNikki and Victor
are going to get back together or if Clay is going to stay married. WHO? WHAT?

SOAP OPERAS. They are of vital importance to many students on campus. For
those who cannot be in front of the tube to watch their soaps, there are VCRs — they
just record them and watch them later. What is the fixation with soaps? When asked,
students had various responses. Here are a few:

"To live the life of Victoria; she gets to kiss Ryan. "

"To procrastinate doing homework. "

"It's addictive . . . Idont know. "

Whatever the answer, students can ape for a little while each day to watch other
people's problems, which make their own seem very mediocre. It's true. What's having
a boyfriend or girlfriend who is not paying attention to you as compared to Brooke,
who is stuck in a love triangle with a father (Eric) and son (Ridge)? It's fun, addic-
tive and exciting. And the best part about it is has no calories or consequences (unless
you never do any homework because you're watching the soaps.)
