In town there was re-
construction in addition
to the Frat. Renaissance;
Lloyd's 24 hour fast food
was closed and Harb's
moved in. Susan Harb re-
placed the well-worn
black and red booths,
greasy fries, and peanut-
butter shakes with green
and white checked table
cloths, croissants, and
hazelnut torte.



Frat Renaissance

After years of talk, W&L's Fraternity Renaissance
Program has become a reality. SAE, Phi Delt, and
Sigma Nu have all moved into their houses, and the
completion of the rest of the Red Square fraternies is
right around the corner.

However, what has been a success for some frater-
nities has become a headache for others. Kappa Sig,
Lambda Chi, and Phi Psi, originally scheduled for
completion in August of '91 , will now not be ready
until January 3, 1992. Moreover, Pi Phi and Sigma
Chi will not be ready until September 5, 1992.

Thefuture renovation of the remaining fraternities,
KA, Sig Ep, and Delt, has yet to be decided

The controversy surrounding the Renaissance has
not stopped with the construction. President Wilson
angered students by suspending 3 fraternity mem-
bers for breaking windows in newly renovated frater-
nity houses. Wilson said that the student government
did not react to the situation so he was "forced to in-
tervene."




Men's Rush

Men's Rush kicked off the W&L social season with
cookouts, band parties, pig roasts, and, of coLirse,
Rush Dates and Open Houses. Fraternity Ren-
aissance threw a wrench in the works tor six houses
undergoing construction. With no place to hold
formal and informal functions, the men used the Un-
iversity Center, Wilson-Walker House, the old Sub-
way, c^nd Schewels Warehouse for their rush arenas.
Despite the unusual backdrops. Rush went on as
usual with around 20t) men pledging.

Across the nation, attitu-
des towards fraternities
were changing rapidly.
Many schools, part-
icularly in the North, had
to battle to keep their
Greek system on-campus.
And some schools, such
as Dartmouth, actually
opened the fraternities'
doors to women.

From August and the be-
ginningof what turned out
to be an international cri-
sis in the Persian Gulf,
Iraqi President Saddam
Hussein held hostages in
his hostile nation. In the
early parts of November,
slowly the release of
people from specific nat-
ions began. Diplomats,
tourists, and others held
captive in Iraq and Kuwait
anxiously awaited their
Homecoming.



Homecoming

Bells tolled 19 times the morning of Friday,
October 12, commemorating the 1 20th anniversary
of General Lee's death, and officially beginning the
Homecoming festivities. Alumni receptions, choral
performances, seminars, the Smithereens playing at
the student activities pavilion, fraternity and sorority
functions, and, of course, the football game were in-
cluded in the weekend's events.

Well dressed spectators gathered at Wilson Field
to watched W&L pounce on Hampden Sydney 21-7.
It was the General's first ever Homecoming victory
against the Tigers, and the first time they had beaten
them at all since 1 980. The game strayed from tradi-
tion, however. For the first time since coronations of
Homecoming queens began at W&L, due to sick-
ness, chemistry Professor Keith Shillington was un-
able to announce, crown, and kiss the lucky lady.
This year. Executive Committee President Tom Hat-
cher presided over the halftime ceremonies and
awarded Kappa Kappa Gamma representative Jean
Stroman the honor. Other members of the court were
Cecily Tynan, first runner-up, and Mary Hampson,
second runner-up. This was the fourth year in a row
that a W&L woman took the crown.




Ghosts, goblins, and things that go bump in the
night had their place at Washington and Lee during
the week of Halloween festivities. No one was too
old to dress up, especially when his costume deter-
mined his destination at Fiji's traditional Heaven and
Hell blowout. Although transferred to the Delt
house, the bash proved to be a great night with )im
Ball and the Suits playing their original tunes well
into the night even after the lead singer lost his voice.
Theta, along with other sorority and fraternity volun-
teers, had witch watchers, while Lambda Chi had a
haunted house for the local Lexington trick-or-
treaters. Another tradition, the Sig Ep Caveman
Party, was equally successful with live music from
The Tweed Sneakers. With Halloween falling on
Wednesday, there were parties the weekend before,
the night of, and the weekend after. With so much
going on, everyone had something to do, and more
than likely they had a great time doing it.



A Piece of

while W&L students and
children throughout the
states got their fill of trick-
or-treating, many kids in
Florida were not allowed
out for Halloween. Due to
a terrible mosquito out-
break, citizens were asked
to not go out after dark or
around dusk. Some mos-
quitos carried Encephal-
itis, a desease that can
cause death.

A story by 20/20 concern-
ing the terrible conditions
of Romanian orphanages
sparked hundreds of
adoptions by American
families. Many Romanian
orphans, mistreated and
left to die, were united
with loving American
families who had lost
hope in finding a child to
adopt.




Parents' Weekend

Hundreds of parents and families arrived in Lex-
ington November 2nd and 3rd for our annual Par-
ents' Weekend. It was a weekend full of activities, in-
cluding a concert in Lee Chapel given by the Wash-
ington and Lee choral ensembles, a seminar on stu-
dent life. President John D. Wilson's address to the
parents, a wine tasting party hosted by the SAB, a
luncheon on the front lawn, and several sports
events. The water polo team finished third in the
Southern Conference Championships and the foot-
ball team was victorious in an upset over Guilford.
The weekend provided a chance for parents and
students to spend time together, over dinner or on
the campus.




Christmas Weekend



Christmas weekend otticially started with last
minute date scamming at parties on Wednesday
night. When all dates were finally in order, the fes-
tivities kicked oft on Friday with a few missed classes
and power naps. Dinner that night, on the whole,
was a casual affair, considering that the Grapes were
jamming in the Pit and fraternities had various par-
ties, hall crawls and the like.

On Saturday afternoon, many fraternities invited
Lexington children to come see Santa Claus and join
in the spreading of Christmas cheer. With phil-
anthropy, alka seltzer, and aspirin under their belts
the men of Washington and Lee donned their uni-
forms (khaki's, jacket, and tie) and proceeded to pick
up their dates, who wore black. Dinner plans varied
from Wilson Walker to the newly opened II Palazzo
to Lee High Truck Stop. After dinner most fraternities
had cocktail parties, which eventually evolved into
rowdier affairs with different bands shaking the walls
oftheirunrenovated houses. Pledges sang Christmas
carols with a twist to entertain the party-goers, and
meaningful gifts were exchanged between big and
little brothers as well as between friends. Christmas
weekend was a time for students at Washington and
Lee to get together, relax, and partake in the Christ-
mas spirit(s) before studying tor exams.

The annual lighting of
the Christmas tree in
President Wilson's yard
coincides with the
lighting of the magnifi-
cent tree in Rockefeller
Center in New York.
The Christmas tree
stands as a sign of the
upcoming Christmas
season and is enjoyed
by people throughout
the world as they pre-
pare for a visit from
Santa Claus.

After Women's Rush,
students kept informed of
war in the Middle East by
hstening to CNN jour-
nalists report on the U.S.
offensive. W&L students
and the nation showed
their support for U .S. troops
when they stood for a mo-
ment of empathetic silence
and for the singing of the
"Star Spangled Banner",
before the Super Bowl,



Women's Rush

As winter term 1991 began, approximately 140
rushees and more than 200 activities pushed aside
coursework to plunge into W&L's second Formal
Women's Rush. The actives of the three established so-
rorities, Chi Omega, Kappa Alpha Theta, and Kappa
Kappa Gamma, conducted rush with the flair of experi-
ence. Delta Gamma, which colonized in the fall of 1 990
after the others, faced rush inexperienced but was assist-
ed by representatives from U VA and Duke. Due to lack of
interest, DC chose to withdraw its invitation to colonize.

Open houses started the week's events on January 1 1 .
At Sunday's skit night, sororities wooed rushees with per-
formances at the Chi-O Ritz and the Theta Dormitory and
by Kappa's Greased Lightning. The sororities asked
backed rushees for Sisterhood night and again for Prefer-
ence Night. Pref night hit a somber note when rush coun-
selors announced that war had just broken out in the
Middle East.

Bid Day, Thursday, January 17, closed the week with
Chi O, Kappa, and Theta each pledging 34 girls.




ODK/Founders' Day

The colonade buzzed with activity as students scram-
bled to make their shortened class schedule. Although
some students were contused by the rearranged day, the
different schedule reminded everyone of the festivities at
hand - ODK/Founders' Day. ODK/Founders' Day was
celebrated on January 18, in honor of General Robert E.
Lee's Birthday and the new Omicron Delta Kappa init-
iates.

ODK, a national leadership honor society, was toun-
ded December 3, 1914 at Washington and Lee by 1 5 stu-
dent and faculty leaders. ODK emphasizes the develop-
ment of the whole person through scholarship and com-
munity involvement. At the ODK convocation, President
Wilson presented an informative speech about three of
the W&L ODK founders, Payne, Robinson, and Wash-
ington. Mike Holton, the ODK Alpha Chapter President,
spoke about ODK's history and the adoption of the ODK
motto and symbol, the circle. Rabbi Dan Fink of Staunton
gave the invocation, which included a prayer for the
world leaders and the conflict in the Middle East. ODK
initiated 20 undergraduates, four law students, and two
honorary members. The honorary members were Larry C.
Peppers, Dean of the Commerce School, whose son had
been inducted to Alpha circle last year, and Robert Shaw,
retired conductor of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

To honor the nation's
founders, the United
States began a year long
celebration for the 200th
anniversary of the Bill of
Rights ratification.




A Piece of

On April 2, the Second
Annual Genesis Ball
was held in Wash-
ington, D.C. The theme
tor this year's charity
benefit was "Help Save
Our Children Fronn
Drug Abuse." A W&L
student and a few
alumni attended with
Washington's high
society and watched
the Barnum and Bailey
Circus perform.







Fancy Dress

The 84th Annual Fancy Dress Ball was "A Royal
Festival at King Arthur's Court." Chairman John
Flippen remarked, "Even though I was, obviously,
involved in every step in planning for FD, I was com-
pletely overwhelmed when it all came together. It
was really incredible being at the ball, knowing how
hard everyone worked on it, and seeing how much
everyone was enjoying it."

The Kings of Swing played in the Warner Center
between a gothic church and Arthur's Castle. In the
Doremus Enchanted Forest, C.J. Chenier and the Red
Hot Louisiana Band opened for Buckwheat Zydeco.
Across from the Round Table in Merlin's Magic
Chamber many encountered English Professor Ed
Craun, who came in costume.

As a prelude to the Ball, the Megaphonics played
in the GHQ Wednesday, while Bo Diddley followed
jimmy Bishop and the Turning Point at Thursday
night's concert. Fraternities and sororities held their
traditional dinners, brunches, cook-outs, and more
throughout the week, especially on Saturday.

Vacations



The last exam is over; a flurry of students rush to
their cars to run home to Mom and Dad, right?
Wrong? Although the traditional family holidays of
Thanksgiving and Christmas do tend to draw
students home, as well as the lure of extra Christmas
money, few seem to view Washington's birthday as
an opportunity for family quality time. Students took
off to everywhere from Europe to the Bahamas.
Although many people did head to the surf, sand,
and sun, some students decided to beat the heat and
head to Colorado and other ski spots to spend a week
on the slopes. But most people tended to head to our
southern most state. Whether it was Destin, Panama
City, Miami, Daytona, Pensacola, or dozens of other
resort cities, W&L was well-represented in the
Florida beach bum category.

Yet who was missing from those peaceful beach
scenes? Our athletes were, of course. While the
tennis team was playing matches in Hilton Head, SC,
the Lacrosse and baseball teams were playing home
or road games mixed in with early practices on off
days.

Although some people
still braved the air lines,
the Persian Gulf Crisis
made both international
and domestic travel
riskier. Airport security
tightened across the na-
tion as the press called ter-
rorism Iraq's most effect-
ive weapon. Companions
were not permitted to ac-
company the departing
travelers to the gate.

Entertainment




A Piece of
Our World

Across the nation, people
kept themselves enter-
tained by watching
movies starring Julia
Roberts, Sleeping with the
Enemy, Pretty Woman,
and Fldtliners. Dances
with Wolves, directed by
and starred in by Kevin
Kostner got Best Picture.
Vanilla ice's /ce. Baby and
the Divinyls' / Touch
Myself were popular
songs. Madonna's music
video Justify My Love was
banned from MTV be-
cause of its sexual ex-
plicitness. And Sinead
O'Connor led the battle
against censorship when
Florida police stopped
Two Live Crew's Nasty as
They Wanna Be Concert.



When not studying or partymg, many people auto-
matically assume that W&L students have a difficult
time finding ways to entertain themselves. However,
the university, as well as Lexington and its sur-
roundings, provide numerous alternatives. Through-
out the year, the Student Activities Board (SAB)
brought concerts such as the Smithereens, the
Neville Brothers, Stanley Jordan, and Paully Shore.
Wednesday nights in the GHQ, the SAB featured
bands such as Valence, IBM, Echoes Farm, The
Boneshakers, AAE and the Megaphonics.

Popular student bands included Soul Kitchen,
Cho, Lost in the Supermarket, and Tiny Purple
Fishes. The Superdance committee with financial
support from SAB sponsored the Battle of the Bands
to support Muscular Dystrophy. This year's first and
second place winners were Cho and Soul Kitchen,
respectively, who opened the next night for Drivin'
and Cryin'. S.A.M.S. and SAB joined together to host
a night of Bingo and lip synch acts in the Pavillion to
support Multiple Sclerosis. The event was opened up
for BYOB and tipsy students walked home proud
winners of Bingo prizes, including round trip air-
plane tickets for two, a TV, and a VCR. Sigma Nus
won the Lip Synch contest as they boogied down to
DeeLite's Groove is in the Heart.

The Concert Guild hosted the American Boy Choir
and Mozartian Players in Lee Chapel, and the Southern
Comfort Invitational in the Pit had students singing
and talking about Tufts' male singing group Beezulbub.

Off campus the local movie theater showed a few
features at a time, although students sometimes had
to wait a few weeks for the latest releases. This year's
most popular choices were Silence of the Lambs,
Home Alone, and Memphis Belle. In the warm
weather students headed to the drive-in, put the top
down or brought a few blankets, and watched a
double feature. Some of this spring's features were
Edward Scissorshands, Dick Tracy, and The Bear. At
the end of the year, SAB revived its old practice of
presenting feature films and showed Dances with
Wolves. The W&L film society offered a more cul-
tural selection of films including Henn/ V, jesus of Mon-
treal, and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.

Students went bowling, putt-putting, or played
volleyball at Fast Lanes on Route 1 1 . During the day,
students went to Goshen, Panther Falls, the rope
swing, and the Blue Ridge Parkway for sunbathing,
swimming, and tubing down the Maury River. The
Outing Club spent many hours cleaning up for
Adopt-a-hHighway, setting up a recycling system,
and hiking up House Mountain and The Priest, a
mountain over 4,000 feet high.



Greek Parties

"Work hard, play hard" are words to live by here at
W&L, with much of the wild night lite being attribu-
ted to the Creek System. With sixteen fraternities and
three sororities, there is always some bash brewing
on a Wednesday, Friday, or Saturday night.
Although many memories are made during casual
gatherings at a favorite frat house, band parties are
always the biggest crowd-pleasers.

Aside from the traditional Homecoming, Christ-
mas, and FD weekend festivities, each fraternity gen-
erally has one famous theme party that inspires elab-
orate decorations, rocking bands, and costumed
party-goers. Some of 1990-1 99 Ts favorite fun-times
were: Fiji'sfamous Heaven and Hell Halloween cos-
tume party and Zollmans turned Fiji Island (vegeta-
tion and all); Kappa Alpha's traditional Old South
Ball, in which attendants transport themselves back
to Civil Wartimes; Phi Delt's Hell's Angels; Chi Psi's
Sherman's March to the Sea party- a northern an-
swer to Old South that caused a little controversy;
Sigma Nu's Shipwrecked, with its very own water-
fall; Beta's wild lungle party; Sig Ep's neanderthalish
Caveman bash; Delta Tau Delta's tropical Ber-
muda's party; Sigma Chi's Freezer and White Trash;
Lambda Chi's Graffiti party; Pi Phi's colorful Mardi
Gras fiesta; Kappa Sig's Tacky and Redneck parties;
SAE's spring formal at Virginia Beach; PiKA's
Moosehead party; and Phi Kap's Bahamas bash.
Many of these great gatherings had to be arranged
around construction workers this year, due to Frat-
ernity Renaissance, and the resulting grand openings
of the remodeled houses drew partying crowds!

The three sororities of W&L have had some wild
times this year as well. Chi-O and Theta combined
their partying powers in this year's Headbanger's
Ball, dressing in clothes atypical of W&L and dan-
cing the night away at Zollmans. Chi-O also had the
annual White Carnation Ball in the spring, and Per-
sephone's Gala in the fall. Theta's Twin Stars ball
and Spring Fling and Kappa's spring formal were
great turn-outs and great fun as well.

Obviously, the assurance that there is always
