Knowledge, Wisdom, Love

Lead Students to Their Dreams

The inscription on
thefrontof theCollege Gate
at the corner of Court and
Union Streets reads. So En-
ter That Daily Thou Mayest
Grow In Knowledge, Wis-
dom and Love.

College gives every
student the chance to ex-
plore their hopes and
dreams, to find what makes
them happy and become the
person they want to be. The
inscription embodies these
ideas. Knowledge is that
\vhich is gained through
experience or study. Wis-
dom is an understanding of
what is true, right or lasting.
Love means d if ferent things
to different people.

College Green's in-
tersecting brick pathways
lead to all corners of the
green and the campus. As
students our hopes, ci reams
and ideas have led us to Ohio
University and all it has to
offer. The atmosphere is
unique-academic yet fun.
Where else do you have top-

rated programs in business,
journalism and osteopathy,
and the Court Street Shuffle

gives students a slice of
small-town life. But it's a
small town with culture. We

Homecoming draws
Athens together

Chilly air and the
threat of rain didn't scare any-
one away from the Homecom-
ing festivities. The event-filled
weekend drew alumni, stu-
dents and townspeople to

The theme "Caring
and Sharing" and events for
the weekend created a sense of
community. The parade, which
included participants from
throughout the region added
to this atmosphere.

Alpha Gamma Delta
sorority and Delta Tau Delta
fraternity won the float con-
test. With a storybook/ fairy
tale image, the float carried an
oversized bed where a grand-
mother read to a small child.
Childhood images such as
Santa Claus, the Easter Bunnv
and the Tooth Fairy sur-
rounded the bed. Both frater-
nity and sorority members rode
on the float.

In addition to those
floats painstakingly built
around the theme, ten area high

school marching bands made
an appearance, as did Miss
Ohio,Junior Renee Autherson.

For the sixth consecu-
tive year, the Homecoming
Queen was named from Alpha
Delta Pi sorority. Senior
Kristen Sutter became queen
after the sorority gathered the
most canned goods of any
campus organization.

"We are very orga-
nized when it comes to collect-
ing," said Chapter President,
Senior Beth Ellensohn. "It's
kind of a positve peer pressure
within the house for everyone
to raise enough cans."

Ellensohn expects Al-
pha Delta Pi to continue the
Homecoming Queen tradition.
"There are many myths going
around about how we keep a
queen, but we're just raising
cans to help the needv in Ath-

Many of the alumni band
members returned to do the half-
time show with the reigning
Marching 110 and to march in
the parade. Colleen Baur-
Mandel, a 1979 graduate, admit-
ted that learning the new steps
for the halftime duet was a little
hectic. "We learned it right be-
fore the show, between the pa-
rade and lunch," Baur-Mandel
said. The band also had a chance
to show off some original perfor-
mance material from its hevdav.

Band members were not
the only alumni in town for
homecoming. At the parade and
the game, some of the "old-tim-
ers" were easily spotted bv their
clothes. Alumni sported school
sweatshirts that actually fit.

Parent's Weekend

The streets of Ath-
ens were strangely quiet.
Stores on Court Street closed
early. Only a few silent stu-
dents straggled across the
College Green. In fact, the
only sounds heard were the
distant hum of vacuum
cleaners and faint clinking of
beer bottles being stashed on
the top shelf of dormitory

It was 5 p.m., Fri-
day, October 25, the begin-
ning of Parents' Weekend. It
was time for most students to
make their homes and their
appearance presentable for
visiting parents.

Many students ac-
companied their parents to
the football game on Saturday
afternoon. The Bobcats
clinched their first win of the

season against Kent State, with
a score of 45-40. Parents enjoyed
the Marching llO's exciting
halftime show.

Others enjoyed calmer
activities. Joel Rudy and his
wife, Marlene, hosted the Dean
of Students' Reception for Par-
ents in Baker Center on Friday
night. The Honors Convocation
was held in Memorial Audito-
rium on Saturday morning. The
University Program Council
sponsored the Dennis Miller
comedy concert for the more
sedate parent.

Most parents and chil-
dren just spent quality time to-

Junior Eric Brandt and
his parents went to the Dennis
Miller concert on Saturday, but
relaxed together most of the
weekend. "My parents don't

like the uptown scene, so we
stayed home and watched the
Twins in the American League
play-offs," said Brandt. "They
also cooked me dinner in my
apartment which was a first."

Not everyone stayed
in. Freshman Jill Stoffregen
took her parents to an Alpha
Gamma Delta-Phi Kappa Tau
social at the Greenery. "We
danced and met a lot of people
and parents," Stoffregen said.
"It was just a big party. . . a
pretty wild time."

Above all, many par-
ents had fun and bought gro-
ceries. When it was all over, a
collective sigh of relief echoed
across the campus and up over
the hills of Athens. Another
Parents' Weekend had past.

Juggling classes, jobs
challenges students

One way or another,
most students paid for part
or all of their tuition, food
and housing. As the cost of
hving grew, many students
had to work while attending
school but finding a job in a
small town like Athens was
not always easy.

The university pro-
vided 960 work-study jobs
and 299 PACE jobs for finan-
cially-qualified students.
Another 850 students were
employed by the food-service
program which included
snack bars, dining halls and
Baker Center.

Unfortunately, the
opportunities for those who
wished to work off-campus
were not nearly as promising.
Bob's Supermarket received
757 applications in two days

for only four positions.

According to Sopho-
more Charity Dye, it was easy
for her to find a job when she
began working at Pizza Hut
two years ago. However, she
said Pizza Hut along with
other local businesses did not
hire anymore. "I know a lot of
people who are just grasping
for anything to get a job," she

Those who found a
job enjoyed the benefits work-
ing provided. Beyond the fi-
nancial aspects, some students
found other rewards in the
workplace. Students gained
valuable experience and
knowledge for future jobs and
life in general.

Senior Mike Kanetsky
increased his education
through his work at Taco Bell

for two years. "I got some
good work experience with
training people and things like
that," he said.

Holding a job while in
college also required hard
work. "Trying to do school
work, hold a job, and still pay
your biUs can be quite hard,"
said Senior Chad Hockley,
employed by Baldino's Pizza.

Nearly all students
agreed with Hockley that
working while taking classes
tended to be stressful. Most
working students quickly
learned a lesson in prioritizing.

Senior Randy

Giberson, a co-worker of
Kanetsky's at Taco Bell said,
"School definitely comes be-
fore work. I try to keep that
priority straight."

Halloween attendance
drops with the mercury

Halloween struck
again as partiersand spectators
swarmed to Court Street. Elvis
made two appearances, seen
gyrating on top of a house and
eating a cheeseburger. Cos-
tumed revelers from Monty
Python's 'The Holy Grail" rode
horseback through the crowd.
Straight from "Saturday Night
Live" the androgynous Pat
came to town. Even the Grim
Reaper found time to come up
and visit with Mayor Sara

Athens Police Chief
Richard Mayer estimated the
crowd swelled to about 15,000
people around 1 1 :30, up 3000
from the year before. Dr. Eliot
Jacobson's Math 120 class,
which had estimated atten-
dance for a class project, had
the same estimate as Mayer at
the peak of the night, but
thought attendance had
dropped by 1 800 from the year

Halloween became a
more mellow affair than previ-
ous years. Police only made 90
arrests Saturday night, down
from 139inl990.Fewerpeople
wore costimies, due in part to
the cold weather. Some fought
the chill and dressed up.

"We dressed up as
Robin Hood and Friar Tuck for
the premier of 'Robin Hood'
and we decided to do it again,"
said visitor Matt KeUy. "Hal-
loween (in Athens) is great, it's
cool and let's party!"

"I think Halloween's
great! It means fun and party-
ing to me," said Freshman John
Russell. The bands could be
better, he remarked.

Mayor Sara

Hendricker spoke out during a
mayoral campaign forum
speculating that the continued
sanctioning by the city could
cause Halloween's demise. "It
was all quiet. I know a brick

wall when I see a brick wall,"
Hendricker said. Reasoning
that the event's illicitness at-
tracted most people, she went
on to say that the legalization
made Halloween less attrac-

Freshman Brian
McElroy, who attended the
Halloween celebration his se-
nior year in high school, did
notice a change since the en-
dorsement of Halloween.

"Halloween's differ-
ent. 1 went my senior year and
it was more of a custom,"
McElroy said. "More people
dressed up. It also attracted
some better bands."

Athens City Council
member William Bias, co-chair
of the Clean and Safe Hallow-
een Committee said, "The only
way to stop Halloween on
Court Street is to put tanks on
Court Street."

Off-campus housing offers
more than just independence

How were your living
conditions this year? Was your
home so drafty that it was hard
to heat? Did your ceiling sag?
Did you have problems with
plumbing? Was your landlord
difficult find when you had a
problem? Was your housing
up to code?

For many students, the
answers to these questions
were not what they wanted to
hear. Many of the more than
7,000 students who moved off-
campus traded the conve-
niences of living in residence
halls for the independenceand,
unfortunately, the problems
and injustices that came with

Jonathan Prince, Stu-
dent Senate's outside housing
commissioner, thought that the
city and the university were as
much to blame for off -campus
housing problems as the land-
lords who took advantage of
students were.

"The university draws
17,000 people into Athens ev-

ery year, offers no help to stu-
dents and does not put pres-
sure on the city to keep hous-
ing up to code," said Prince.
"And the city is understaffed
and not doing enough to en-
force the laws that protect stu-
dents living off-campus, most
of which students aren't even
aware of. Students just don't
know their rights."

Migraine mayhem. Headaches take
over as students mill around Iheconvu
looking for a class.

Convo Shuffle causes
headaches, heartaches

Imagine standing in
line for hours, frustrated and
confused. Think about being
stuck in this hne on your first
or second day back from break.
The university registration of-
fice closed you out of a class.
Welcome to theConvo Shuffle.

After being closed out,
studentsattended registration
at the Convocation Center.
They tried to put together a
class schedule torn apart by
close-outs and time restraints.
With anv luck, thev obtained
the schedule thev wanted.

Assistant Registrar
Peter Noll said that the in-
crease in enrollment led to
more close-outs. Due to an in-
creasing demand on certain
classes and no increase in
subsidies, students could not
get into desired classes.

Freshman Kelly
McComb thought there had to
be a better way to pick up

classes. She considered the
Convo Shuffle a waste of time
and effort. "First of all, I had to
stand in line for two hours be-
fore I even got into the gym,"
she said.

"Secondly, once 1 fi-
nally got in, 1 had to stand in
line at the tables for another
two hours to get classes that I
did not need or want. It is no
wonder most people do not
graduate on time. They can't
get the classes they need to
graduate. There has to be a
better solution. 1 just wish
someone could think of one!"

Accord ing to Noll, the
university searched for ways
to correct the problem. They
planned to install a new stu-
dent information system
where students could pre-
register, drop or add classes
bv telephone. Yet, he said
close-outs would remain a

Sophomore Mike
Casto, a transfer student,
scheduled all of his winter
quarter classes at the Convo.
Due to close-outs, he could not
get into the classes he needed
to become a junior. "Being a
transfer student, it seemed a bit
mean to send me through hell
on top of every thing else 1 had
to deal with," he said. "Thanks
to the Convo Shuffle, 1 may
very well be a sophomore for a
year longer than a person with
90 credit hours should be."

Sophomore Tammy
Schalk gave some advice after
learning from experience. "If
you have to go to the Convo
Shuffle,be prepared to be there
a long time," she said. "They
try to go fast, but then people
get closed out of classes and
have to wait in line. The best
thing to do is prepare yourself
before you go and be humble."

The School of Music
presented the opera, "La
Traviata," at Memorial Audi-
torium Jan. 24 and 25. Set in the
1850s, "La Traviata" told a
tragic love story between
Violetta; a young courtesan,
and Alfredo; a voung man in
search of love. "It was a very
passionate opera," said Junior
Jennifer Lapina.

"La Traviata," Italian for
the "lost one" was based on
Alexandre Dumas' plav "La
Dame Aux Camelias" and
contained music written by
Giuseppe Verdi and text by
Francesco Maria Piave.

Edward Payne, the ar-
tistic director of the Ohio Uni-

and conducted "La Traviata."

The opera was chosen
because "We have fine singers
on hand and I really like it,"
said Payne. " 'La Traviata' is a
singing opera and we happen
to have the singers for it."

formance," said Freshman
