St. Mary's College



St. Mary's College

Nothing says as much about the St. Mary's campus as
the river does. It is one of the first things a pro-
spective student sees, and it is the one thing that stays in
his or her mind when they tell their friends about our
school. Many times when St. Mary's is mentioned,
someone will inquire "oh, the one in Emmitsburg?" And
we will have to replay that, no, we're not the one in the
mountains, we're the one by the river. Our reputation as
a resort first, and a school second is largely due to the
fact that we have the river here. Not many school can
boast that they have what amounts to a small fleet of sail
boats, or even a dock. We are Riverside.

Much of what happens on campus deals directly with
the river. Where other schools have homecomings, we
have Riverfest. Early in the fall when the weather is still
nice and the water is still warm, the campus turns out to
play volley-ball, or toss the frisbee around or just sit
around and enjoy the sun while they still can. This year
in the Spring we had Waterfront Day, sponsored both by
the Sailing Club and the Dorchester Dorm council; a day
filled with sunshine and seemingly endless hours of
tournament volley-ball. The championship games had to
be played in the gym due to the early darkness.

The first sunset on the river is what convinces many
students that St. Mary's is the place for them. It is quite a
sight to see the mixture of reds and blues and whites
which make up a typical sunset. In the Spring it is not
unusual to see many people standing on the edge of the
hill by the Garden of Rememberance just to watch as
nature puts the final touch on the day and prepares for
the night. All of which is reflected flawlessly on the liq-
uid canvas of the river, which flows on and on.

Our campus, our river, our identification, this is what
we are all about. One only has to take a walk along the
beach on the first warm day of Spring to see how much
the river means to the students here. We are Riverside.

This is what St. Mary's

What makes St. Mary's what it is? It's
not just the river, or just the spread
out campus with open space and room to
move. Maybe it is the people who make St.
Mary's such a great place. No matter where
you go on campus, you're going to run into
someone you know or maybe even so-
meone you don't know, and you'll nod or
say "hello" as you pass. Even when school is
not in session, St. Mary's people have a way
of finding each other. If you go to the
beach for the summer, you're almost guar-
anteed to run into someone wearing a St.
Mary's sweatshirt, or jacket. You just can't
get away from them.

For some it has been only four
years, the required four years
that it takes to qualify for the "big
walk." For others it is a moment
that has been a long time coming.
Either way, it means the same
thing: graduation. The end of
college and once again, a new

Most Seniors are more than
ready to leave when May rolls
around; sure they will miss their
friends and all of the good times,
but enough is sometimes
enough. Memories, both good
and bad, will be taken along into
the world which they are not a
part of. St. Mary's has become a
part of their lives, a part that will
be with them forever. They will
remember the beach and the wa-
ter, fun times with friends and
the tears that come with growth.
St. Mary's is an experience; as
Senior Gillian Faulkner put it; "I
never knew college could be so
much fun, and such a pain in the
ass at the same time."

The Shoe Tree.

Springtime comes to St. Mary's
and the trees are in bloom
and the flowers sprout from
the ground once again. But, one
does not have to wait for Spring
to see a plant that has fruit ripe
for picking throughout the year.
That plant is the shoetree. It is a
rare hybrid of the agricultural
world in the way that shoes seem
to grow on it. It's hard to say
when the tradition started, but
it's a pretty sure thing that there
will always be a bountiful harvest
of fashion footwear as long as the
tree stands.

The Finishing touch

That's it?!!

The sun finally came out during
May. The morning of Saturday
the thirteenth was a mixture of
bright sunshine and a warm
breeze blowing off the river. It
had rained all week, dampening
just about everyone's Seniorweek
festivities. There was talk of hold-
ing graduation in the gym instead
of on the townhouse greens as
had been done the previous year.
Seniors began to worry about the
chance that some of the people
who they had invited to watch the
commencement might not even
be able to see it, due to the limit-
ed number of tickets. But the sun
put those worries to rest, gradua-
tion was held outside under a
beautiful blue sky with bleached
white clouds floating softly over-

Now the Seniors minds were
clear to think about other things,
namely, what happened to the last
four years? The seemingly endless
classes had indeed ended, dawn
had broken on the all-night par-
ties, the dorm and townhouse
rooms were empty. Friends
hugged each other good-bye with
promises to write, and stay in
touch, and to never forget.

Let's see it Grimace, one more time.




Living at SMC

Home at school

Walk into any room on the St. Mary's campus
and just by looking around you can tell a lot
about the people living there. Some of the rooms are
so empty that it would appear as if the occupants
lived somewhere else and just used the room for
sleep. Other rooms are so full of junk that it is almost
impossible to walk around in them. The dorm rooms
and townhouses are more than just a place where
students sleep and study, these rooms are the homes
away from home for the seventy percent of full-time
students who live on campus. Students take what the
school provides, and then build from there. It's not
unusual to find a couch or love-seat or even an easy
boy in a typical room. And because of the river, even
a sailboard or two won't raise an eyebrow. A stu-
dent's room is his or her one real source of privacy
on the campus, and whatever can be done to make it
more comfortable, is usually done.

Townhouses end
second Year

The Spring of 1989 saw the
end of the second year of
student residence in the town-
houses. After two years, one
thing has become clear; if you
don't want to live in the dorms
anymore, and you really don't
want to move off campus, the
townhouses are the right alter-
native. When the option of
townhouse living was opened
to students in the Spring of
1987, they were skeptical. In
fact, there were not enough in-
terested students at the time to
fill all of the rooms. Things have
certainly changed since then
though. Now there is a waiting
list of students who are looking
for something different in the
place where they live.

Living with
the Townhouses

In the Spring of 1988 when it
was announced that the com-
mencement ceremonies would
not be held on the State House
lawn in Historic St. Mary's City,
the news was received with mixed
reactions. The new location
would be the townhouse greens,
what some seniors saw as a further
attempt by the school to show off
its new 'toys.' Others had bad
feelings about what seemed to be
the alienation of the schools asso-
ciation with St. Mary's city in gen-
eral. Now, one year later, the
rumblings have been forgotten,
the rumpled feathers have been
smoothed. Graduation went off
pleasantly and now the town-
house lawn has become part of
the tradition.

Your room-mate

Who will ever forget their first day at St. Mary's
when they met . . . the room-mate? Most
students haven't shared a room since they were
seven or eight years old, and suddenly they are ex-
pected to deal with another living, breathing hu-
man being living in the same room with them. It is
an experience to say the least. The first couple
weeks are spent on best behavior, until one room-
mate or the other gets comfortable enough, and
then the real person comes through. Room-mates
aren't the end of the world, sometimes they can be
the start of something big, perhaps your closest
friend, or perhaps a life-long enemy. You find
yourself asking questions like; "Do I look that bad
in the morning," or "Do I treat people like that?"
Either way, for at least a semester, you're stuck with

Some room-mates present special problems.

Sweet Dorm


The source of sleepless nights.

Fun with Peacocks

Dorm Dwellers were 'privileged' this year to ex-
perience something a bit different namely,
peacocks in heat. Picture this: It's four o'clock on a
Sunday morning, you finally make it back to your
room, or a room, depending on your night, and fall
face-first into bed and fall asleep. A half-hour later,
you hear someone holding a cat by its tail and
swinging it around over their head. You listen to
the screams of agony for a couple minutes, and
then it hits you (no, not the cat), it's those (explica-
tive removed) peacocks yelling about their sexual
frustration again. You ponder your options, and
realize there are none, like your room-mate, you
are stuck with the peacocks. Because yes, it is ille-
gal to hunt peacocks in Maryland. Just hope there
aren't more babies next year.

When you look at the above picture, you
might think that is some kind of joke, or
maybe just a very unmotivated hall. It is a joke
of sorts, but more of what the hall called a pro-
test. As everyone knows by now, there will be
no girls living on the third floor Calvert next
year. Calvert will become a 24 hour 'living
learning center.' This is the brain-child of Resi-
dence Life for this year; put the people who

want to study all in the same dorm, to increase
productivity, or something like that. Like other
changes that have been made on the St. Mary's
campus, the student population wasn't too
thrilled about the prospect of Calvert going
co-ed, especially for a permanent 'study hall.'
Will this be the end of the 'Virgin Vault?' Only
time will tell. Some say that it will remain, only
now some of the virgins are guys.

St. Mary's Best

The Dorchester

Dorchester. The name strikes terror into
every young girls heart, or at least the
guys living there would like to think it does.
Walking up the path on the side of the
dorm, you can see the motto (or moto, as
the graffitist spelled it) Hell for Bitches. The
fact that it is an all-guys dorm lends to its
reputation. Tour guides don't take their
tours into Dorchester, as if it weren't safe for
common people to enter. Dorchester, which
once held the title of the most damage-rid-
den dorm on campus has now bowed to
Caroline with its infamous first right. Even
third right has become a place where a girl
can walk along without worrying about what

will happen to her, well, almost anyway. One
thing has remained the same; there is pride
in living in Dorchester, it is, as the sweatshirt
claim, St. Mary's finest. It takes a certain kind
of person to live here, a kind of person that
most would call crazy, but people living
there don't think so. Dorchester has its own
process of weeding out, if a person has a
problem with living on a rowdy hall, they
will usually move to P.G. or Caroline where
they will be more comfortable. And if they
cause more trouble than is necessary, resi-
dence life weeds them out. All in all, it isn't a
bad place to live, if you can get used to the

Queen Anne

The girls' Alone

If you're a girl and you just can't handle liv-
ing co-ed, and Calvert is too far away, your
ideal choice is Queen Anne. Queen Anne is
close to 'the hill', but not too close, it's pret-
ty much the center of campus. Having an all-
girls dorm away from the rest of the dorms
has been the subject of some trouble with
townies in the past, but for the view of both
the river and St. John's Pond, Queen Anne
can't be beat. Just as the Calvert girls have
their reputation, Q.A. girls have the reputa-
tion of being stuck-up, although it all de-
pends on who you know in the dorm.

The Winter of
. . . the Snow

There was something unusual about the
Winter of 1988-89, something that set it
apart from the Winters of years past. This
mysterious something really isn't that mys-
terious at all, it was the snow. Not that it
doesn't snow in Southern Maryland, it just
doesn't usually snow that much. Two com-
plete days of classes were cancelled, along
with a handful of stray classes, usually can-
celled because the professor didn't want to
brave the elements to get to school.

The best storm, or the worst, depending
on how you look it, would have to be
theone on February 23, and 24. The weather
service had been calling for snow all day, but
by 10:00 Thursday night, all we had gotten
was flurries, not nearly enough to justify not
