Living Up to Standards

I independent. Left: Dorms are nice, but even the Student Lounge
% can offer a comfortable sanctuary.

Living on tfie Stetson campus, though never free of its prob-
lems, has reached a comfortable climax in the past year. Stetson
Hall, for example, though under renovation for over a year, is
finally functioning as smoothly as the other women's dorms.
Keeping equal quality in housing is important, and upholding that
standard is more so, but it becomes a challenge when your door
drops from its hinges.

Above: Flagler Hall (1902)

Below left: Sampson Hall (1908)

Below: Elizabeth Hall (1892-center, 1897-wings)

The construction of DeLand Hall in 1883 set a traditional standard at
Stetson that has continued through the addition of the pedestrian mall
in 1985. Though each landmark is a reflection of its own individual
time, a unique campus atmosphere has gradually and carefully been
captured and developed right up to the present.

Maintaining both tradition and atmosphere has become an impor-
tant consideration over the years and is evident from end to end of the


Stetson's scenic balance has been upheld through its
landscape and architecture with the intent to capture an
old-fashioned flavor, and at the same time, provide useful,
modern facilities. It is especially emphasized in the more
recent additions.

The lives of Stetson students never stop moving.
Achieving the full University experience depends on
having more to do than study. Programs that involve
people in charity, sports, every branch of the arts, ca-
reer and academic exploration and school spirit all
serve to give the students many routes of activity.
Though personal reward and plain fun are the pro-
ducts, the effects of Student Life are felt beyond the
bounds of the campus.

Here at Stetson, the students read very intellectual books.



Students at Stetson have
found many ways to relax in be-
tween the academic rigors. The
campus offers scenic bike
routes, ample space for strolling,
throwing a frisbee, or just relax-
ing with friends; whatever! Stet-
son even has its own game
room, student lounge for televi-
sion and napping, and of course
the Hat Rack patio and C.U.B.
circle where students can ob-
serve the goings on.

"Stetson . . . And All that Jazz" welcomed home the
alumni for Homecoming Weekend, 1986. Former Hatters
were here to participate in the many events to remind them
of good times past. Homecoming Chairman and Co-Chair-
man Beth Chesser and Greg Doescher arranged a multitude
of activities including barbeques, sports and banquets.
"Cluster" Receptions gave alumni the chance to get reac-
quainted with members of their graduating class and from
home areas. Pardi-Gras, a new event to add to the tradition
of good times, represented campus organizations with its
many food, fun, and game booths on Saturday afternoon.
The weekend highlight was of course the Homecoming
basketball game. Students and alumni came to cheer our
team to victory. Homecoming King and Queen were
crowned at half-time and spirit awards were given to Alpha
Tau Omega, Pi Kappa Alpha, Alpha Chi Omega, and Alpha
Kappa Psi for their individual efforts to make the weekend
even more exciting. The fun and excitement will add to our
happy memories of good times at Stetson.
