Welcome to the 1992 Cornuco-
pia. "Positively Ours" is the theme
chosen for the 1991-92 year. We
felt this was appropriate and fit
Delaware Valley College to a tee.
There were times in the past when
our independence was being test-
ed. Would we remain on our own
and be capable of surviving the
times? Someone must have felt we
deserved a chance, so here we are
with a new president and a chang-
ing attitude. Delaware Valley Col-
lege is positively ours; we help
make the difference.

For recent graduates, this is their
time to discover all that the world
has to offer. With a DelVal educa-
tion behind them, they can't go
wrong. For seniors, this year will be
the one to remember. Enjoy it
while you can; it will fly by quickly.
The junior class probably feels that
1994 will never get here. Don't
worry about graduation. You are
currently at the peak of your col-
lege days. Everyone you talk to
can't believe you are a junior in
college already. Time does seem to
be flying by and the next thing you
know, you will be calling yourself a
college senior.

The sophomores have one year
under their belts and are ready for
this year to be over. Now they can
see what they were were like their
freshmen year by observing the
Class of '96. The freshmen class is a
special class. When they graduate,
Delaware Valley College will be
celebrating 1(X) years. Positively

The Cornucopia wishes all DVC
students the best of luck.

This year's book would not have
been possible without the initial
encouragement and support of
Ched Baker. Without his guidance
first semester, the Cornucopia
would be dull and boring. His
ideas helped us develop a standard
to follow in future years. Thanks
Ched, for all your positive thoughts
and ideas!

I would personally like to thank
everyone on the yearbook staff for
their constant support and dedica-
tion. Thanks for making this book
so spectacular.

To the entire student body, the
staff of the '92 Cornucopia hopes
that you will enjoy the book and
cherish the memories we strived to

Here's to 1992! It is "Positively

Positively Fresh
A Freshman Perspective

I was asked to write this article from a freshman's view of college,
particularly Delaware Valley College. The problem with writing this wasn't
what to write but more of where to start. I learned so much this year. I think
we all have. I still remember the first day; resident assistants, peer counselors,
and faculty members on all sides trying to make our orientation run smooth-
ly as possible. It seemed that during orientation, all the basic fears; of will my
roommate like me and will the faculty be helpful and will I make friends
were halted. Everyone seemed like they wanted me here. It was only the first
day and I was already making friends. It would be impossible to describe
how we did it for the methods ranged from meeting a group in the student
lounge to doing the electric slide behind Segal Hall. It didn't matter how we
made our friends; the point was "We did it!" and were off into our first
semester and the beginning of our involvement in our campus community.
Whether we joined sports, clubs, or organizations, we managed to arrange
our schedules so we still had time for a social "party" life. As the semester
dwindled down, our first college finals came near and so did spring course
registration. Where was that guy who gave me my pre-made schedule in the
beginning of the semester? It was good thing winter break was just around
the corner.

Coming back second semester we got to see all the friends we missed over
break and were generally more sure of our goals. Knowing our way around
campus made it easier to locate information and accomplish tasks making
our college a better place. The professors at Del Val were great and easily
accessible for help. They, however, only added to the personable college
DVC is. Everyone here is willing to pitch in and show their support,
especially for events including sports, games, Pride and Polish Day, and the
notorious A -Day to name a few. It is rare to see a school commit to the pride
Delaware Valley College has and that's only another important characteristic
of the college.

As a freshman, I personally am very glad I chose this college for I enjoy
our campus community. No matter what our involvement is, whether it is
through sports, clubs, or organizations, I hope that our freshmen class will
contribute to positively reinforce the values for which our college stands.

Never Give Up

No matter where you are,

Look above and find a star.

Never give up,

Never give in,

You can conquer,

You can win.

Don't keep your feelings locked inside,

For you, my friend, have nothing to hide.

So when you feel your world has come to

an end, |U

Remember me, I'm your friend.
I'll be here day and night,
For you, my friend, will be alright.
Just remember,
Never give up,
Never give in,
You can conquer,
You can win.



Our Time!

August. 1988. The beginning of great
friendships, lasting memories, and good

Who would have ever guessed that we
would take with us so much more than
just an education when we left:' The time
spent together has been special and is
never to be forgotten.

Just think of all we have experienced
together. First there was the Cooke Hall
fire, then a new dairy, a rally to get more
out of our tuition dollars, a new equine
center, two new presidents, wrestling
championships, a win in football over
Widener. and much, much more. The
college has undergone many changes
since we have been here. More impor-
tantly, we have each experienced our own
changes. To put it simply, we have grown
up. Although we may not want to admit
this, it is true. Just look at how far we
have come. We should all be proud of
our accomplishments. Now, we can only
look forward to challenges we will meet
in the future.

Although the time has come for us to
move on, never lose the memories cap-
tured over the past four years. We have-
just experienced a special time in our
lives. Many of us found that wonderful
person who will be by our side forever.
Others found unbreakable bonds of
friendship that will remain strong until
the end of time. Cherish these memories
always; they will carry us through the
good times and the bad. They will always
be a part of us.

Thanks DVC for adding such a posi-
tive segment to our lives. Thanks also, to
the Class of '92 for being a special part to
my life. I will cherish you forever.

Dedication To

Mr. Robert Sauer

We, the members of the Cornu-
copia staff, are extremely honored to
dedicate the 1992 edition of the
yearbook to Mr. Robert Sauer.

Many of us have received letters
from him but do not know who he
really is. Mr. Sauer has been part of a
staff which offers many students the
opportunity to experience what Del-
aware Valley College has to offer.
He is currently the Director of Fi-
nancial Aid and as a '65 graduate, he
knows firsthand about the Del Val

Upon graduating with a degree in
Dairy Husbandry, Mr. Sauer worked
for Agway and Merck, Sharpe, and
Dohme. In 1967, he returned to
DVC as an Assistant Dean. He has
been involved with many extra-cur-

ricular activities including the year-
book, A -Day, and lacrosse. He has
advised each of these organizations
and is responsible for starting the
lacrosse team.

On a personal note, Mr. Sauer en-
joys hunting, fishing, gardening, and
being a grandfather. He is the father
of two sons, one a DVC graduate.

Mr. Sauer may not always get the
recognition he deserves so we want
to let him know how much he is

Thank you lor being a special part
of our college family. His dedication
to the yearbook for 18 years as advi-
sor helped set a standard for the
Cornucopia. Without his past devo-
tion, the yearbook would not be
what it is today.


"I have found the faculty to he dedicated, sup-
portive and always willing to give the students
that extra incite to keep them focused on their
respective paths."

To the graduating class of 1992

Thank you for the opportunity of having one more chance to talk with you before you
leave. I have had the good fortune to speak with many of you in the academic setting as well
as informally.

We are witnessing a world wide evolution, with events happening at a lightening pace,
(liven Mr. Roberts' is having trouble keeping up). You are the first graduating class to have
the opportunity to be a part of this change. Yesterday's adversary is today's neighbor and
friend in need of help. Your knowledge in the areas of Agriculture, Science, and Business are
the tools necessary to unite this changing world into a better and more peaceful community.
The choices available to you will be unlimited and the opportunities to get involved will be
too numerous to count. lintire countries are opening up and asking for our help. The need
to feed their citizens and to enter the free enterprise community of nations is exciting to
watch. You have the golden opportunity to do more than watch.

The college family also wants the opportunity to stay in touch with you as you face the
l hallenges that lay ahead. Please, stay in touch and let us know how we can continue to help

Mrs. Sally Smith

Sally Smith will be remembered by students and colleagues for many qualities. She had great enthusiasm
for language and literature. Her goal always was to provide the best education possible. Her students
benefitted from her dedication and from her clear sympathy with their efforts. Her colleagues loved her for
her generous devotion to the shaping of educational goals, for her cheerful determination, and most of all for
her great courage.

Alice Clark
Department of English

Aside from her commitment to teaching and her active participation in school affairs, Sally Smith was a
"profile in courage." Battling a debilitating disease for fourteen years, Mrs. Smith refused to see herself as ei-
ther a victim or invalid. A positive and optimistic attitude helped her to lead a productive, happy life even
during the years of illness, and her unflagging spirit served as an inspiration to all her colleagues.
