The gate to Goolrick Hall welcomes the approaching athletes. Friends find a place to ^Sf^Sv
converse on the familiar pathway to the College Station Post Office.
The Amphitheater, one of the most beautiful places on campus, is rarely used. It
could just as easily accomodate a Greek Tragedy as a Rock Concert.
Inside the Ivy is a yearbook for
you. It captures the 1984-1985 col-
lege year in pictures and print.
Each page of this book touches a
student in a personal way. The
photos are of you at play, at work,
at study, at sleep. These are the
events that are close to you and
me, the day to day occurences
that we remember and in years to
come, these are the significant
memories that we relay to our
children and grandchildren,
about our college days at The
Wash. Halloweens, Family
Weekend, The First Kegger, Devil
- Goat will be here long after we
have graduated, but the experi-
ence of being Ghostbusters, spill-
ing your plate in Mom's lap,
watching break dancing, and
cracking an egg in your partner's
hand are the significant events.
These are the events that are sus-
pended in time within the covers

So with this theme, I ask you to take
a look inside the gates of Mary
Washington College, not the front
gates but the back gates, the one ev-
ery student knows unlike the tourists
that visit and the visitor for the first
time. Look at the happenings that are
going on behind the scenes. We are
unique in that we know the secrets
and the inside scoop. We pursue the
reality and we attempt to correct the
The ivy holds each of us closely
whether it be in our dorms, on our way
to class or meals, in class, on the field.
It is always with us. It is dependable
and reliable. It will not change or
move away from us. It is a stabilizing
factor. But, what goes on within this
emcompassing ivy, what happens out-
side the ivy is the purpose of this year-
book. It is about you; it is for you;
don't lose it and keep it close to heart.

Under the Bigtop, there was definitely a circus of merchants.
The freshmen were welcomed to campus with a
weekend of fun for everyone. There was a block
party in Ball Circle that initiated many fresh-
men to their first college party. It went on late
into the night with dancing and meeting new
friends. That day there was an afternoon of mu-
sic and food as many of the Fredericksburg area
businesses came out to introduce the new stu-
dents to the area. This afternoon could only be
topped by Playfair in Jefferson Square. Through
Playfair, many new students who knew few peo-
ple here were given the chance to meet as many
people as they could in a short amount of time.
Playfair's methods were a little funny, but they
worked. With the assistance of this group, many
people were able to make acquaintances that
would last throughout the school year and

It is unique! That is the only descrip-
tion that can be made of MWC's social
life. Many complain about Dead-Fred
and the lack of activity but let's look at
what we do have. We are forty to fifty
minutes from D.C. (Georgetown, the
city of Washington) and Richmond
(Shockoe Slip, the Fan, Downtown
Richmond). The Pool Room is always
entertaining whether you are there for
the music, friends, or the beer — then
there are the times that you end up the
entertainment. Jefferson, Framar,
Hamlet, Madison Parties, just to name
a few resident hall parties, the keggers.
Ball Circle, Jefferson Square, the C
Shop, and Goolrick Hall gave us a break
from academic. Other than entertain-
ment, the daily occurances add so
much to our life. Dorms are all impor-
tant to our social self. Inside the Ivy
tries to capture the time and feeling of
the true student life at Mary Washing-
ton College 1985. As the social life
changes, the ivy that graces our cam-
pus remains green and flourishing. It
has seen and participated in many
years of student life and this year is no
different. So browze through the pages
of this section and hopefully the faces
and events will continue to be vivid re-
minders of life as we saw it in the Fall
1984 and Spring 1985.

WHEREVER THERE'S A
QUIET PLACE . . .
Anywhere you look on campus there
are people studying. It could be at
Seacobeck in the morning, under a tree
around Ball Circle in the afternoon, or
at the end of the hall in the evening.
Mary Washington has a few places that
are, however away from the throngs of
people. Places like the DuPont Col-
onnades, The Battleground, or in the
Amphitheater surrounded by the ivy
can be transformed into your own pri-
vate niche. There are still one or two
places around campus left undisco-
vered but to a fortunate few. With the
enrollment increasing each year, you
would think that space would be tight,
especially trying to find a place all to
oneself, but actually it isn't. Even
though there are more people here
than ever before it seems that Marye's
Hilltop abounds with never ending
nooks and crannies, here and there,
which can become your own special
place to call yours. All you have to do is
look and you can find it.

For anyone who wanted to tone up,

Washington has something for every-

most the number one exercise among
students. At any hour of the day or
night there are people walking, run-
ning, or even biking all over the cam-
pus. Volleyball, tennis and even frisbee
in Ball Circle were also favorite forms
of activities. For more indoors con-
scious people there were aerobics, and
