^Homecoming

Royalty



Perhaps the most exciting events in Homecoming Week are the football
game and the crowning of the Homecoming king and queen. These
events are often the last of the week and serve to pull
everything together in a few loud hours of cheering for the
football team and homecoming court alike. The students
are given a chance to show their football skills and great sense of loyalty
and also to present the two students that they feel best exemplify this
loyalty. These two are carefully chosen by a vote and spend the next year
representing the school.

This year, the homecoming king was Chad Heinicke of Pi Kappa Phi who
was unable to accept the award on the day it was given because he was
away for a soccer tournament. Chad was crowned at College Coffee the
following Tuesday. Alpha Omicron Pi's Lisa Fort received the title of
homecoming queen. The voting for this event was the highest ever and the students were very
happy with the turn out. At the announcement of the winners, the stands went wild with cheering
and clapping. It was quite a successful vote.

Homecoming week was a very exciting time filled with events, games and laughter. The students
all pulled together and created a widely diverse group of people who all shared one common trait;
a love for the school. On the final day of events, the students crowded together in the stadium to
show this love to each other and to the challenging university. They did this with pride and the
students truly did "Light the Flame."

It began on a cool, sunny morning at College Coffee. Among the students ^
in their usual school day garb existed a mob of girls with pig tails, slippers,
and pajamas traveling in a line singing. A group of Disney
characters, various Olympians and even the Secret Service
complete with Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky frolicked
about the fountain. It was October 31 , the first day of Homecoming week,

and a costume contest was the first of many competitions.
Light the Flame was the theme of this week of coming together of students
and alumni alike. The SGA, which was responsible for planning the events,
had a very diverse crowd participate in the events to make Homecoming



Another spectacular



an exciting week. Other events that were judged in the competition included

Homecoming pep rally a quiz bow | and a f)oat competition,
display.

On Thursday night, students flocked to the construction site of Rhodes

Stadium to take part in a pep rally and to witness a spectacular array of fireworks.

Saturday morning, Haggard Avenue was blocked off from traffic for an hour, so that the

Homecoming parade could pass through. In addition to many colorful floats, vans,

cars, and motorcyclists showed their school spirit and loyalty with banners and uplifting

phrases painted on their windows.

Overall, the week was a great success and everyone who had a chance to

participate in the events or who witnessed them saw a strong sense of togetherness

and loyalty.

With a spirit all their own, Campus Recreation represented everything
Elon stands for. The teamwork necessary to plan all of the extracurricular
activities involved intense focus by all CR members. This

promoted involvement in semi-competitive teams including roller hockey,

field hockey, men's and women's rugby, horseback riding, and swimming.

Outdoors team. This section planned trips for other organizations, provided excursions
for all interested students, and taught the student body to push themselves to the limits.
Finally, the Special Programs team has grown in the last few years and has utilized
power in numbers. This team created every CR event and did an amazing job of building
school spirit. Through all of their efforts, Campus Recreation gave the entire population
a sense of belonging and comaraderie.

Rivalry

The Fighting Christian has been a long time tradition of Elon. The

announcement of a new mascot in May of last year was not as welcome

as the administration had hoped. The Fighting Christian,

commonly referred to as 'Mr. E,' held a special place in many

people's hearts. He bridged the gap between the school

and what was left of its affiliation with the church, while inviting a sense of

unity between students and alumni. In some cases, both students and

alumni had mixed emotions during this transition and often times bitter

attitudes toward the Athletics Department. Undoubtedly, they would benefit

from this change but it was also designed to promote a positive image for

mascot emerged from the school, which could not have been put into better words than Lambert's

unseen.

as sleek, swift, and one-of-a-kind. I can think of no better description for

Elon's outstanding athletics programs." Although the Fighting Christian has always
held a history with the college, it is believed by some, that the Phoenix commemorates
that history and has helped emerge a stronger institution. Even through all of this, it
was still inevitable that despite Elon's new mascot and the general acceptance of it, the
upperclassmen will always remain Fighting Christians at heart.

Curtain



By Rebecca Brewer



Photo by Erik Furlan



On opening night, right before the curtain rises, cast and crew wait in
darkness for the first line of the first scene. Each one is faced with
overwhelming emotions: the nervousness that things won't
go well, the excitement of the culmination of months' work,
and an eagerness for the lights to go up.
Over fall, winter, and spring semesters, at least five major productions
were cast, rehearsed, and performed. Through these performances,
students majoring in the arts are given a chance to gain the education
necessary to become successful in their future careers. Whether their
talent lay in movement, voice, or acting, students were sure to find their
niche in the departments of dance, theatre, and musical theatre, but no
musical would be complete without the orchestra.
The Music Department is small but demands a presence from the
audience. From their concert performances to football games, the
dedicated students were able to display their many talents. Dressed in
maroon and white shirts, the pep band played a vital role in boosting
school spirit before and during games. The concert band successfully proved themselves

through various performances and musical gallas.

Despite the seemingly declining interest in the arts, students demonstrated the
importance of practice and rehearsal. These many nights spent working together
truly resulted in a work of art.

Senior and SGA President John Gardner hangin 1 around in
Moseley, the central hub for many student organizations on
campus.



Senior and SGA President John Gardner tells us a little

about his experience at Elon and how it has influenced
his plans for the future.

Q/ Has your position as SGA President enhanced your
experience at Elon?

S\x Serving the students of Elon as the SGA president
has definitely enhanced my experience at Elon. Through
this office, I was in the position to help students on a day
to day basis, work with administration, and help to maintain
and enhance our community administration. Over the
past few years, I have had the unique opportunity to watch
Elon grow and help shape the future of the school.

Ql What are your plans after graduation?

!A.l I plan to begin a career in politics. I have always
been interested in politics, but after being an intern in
Washington this past summer, I came to the conclusion
that the political arena was where I wanted to be. I am
unsure of where my future will take me, but look forward
to staying involved with Elon in some way.
