lough travelers detoured from Kimball Avenue during 
football season, 49,762 Wildcat fans piled into KSU Stadium, 
in support of purple power, for the team's first victory against 
a ranked, non- conference opponent. Pre -game atmosphere 
was lively as students tailgated and socialized. 

Amid physical, emotional and perceptional changes, 
the university maintained its core values established with its 
beginning. 

"We should never forget those values," Mayor Ed Klimek 
said. "These are values we respect and honor about the 
people of the United States of America." 

During the Tree Dedication Ceremony Sept. 11, Klimek 
said the American way of life had changed in a year. He said 
people in Manhattan should realize the values respected in 
the Heartland - family, courtesy and friendliness - were 
taken for granted here, but were not always practiced in 
other parts of the country. 

While dusty bulldozers, orange cones, barrels and fences 
took over campus, the community atmosphere provided a 
sense of pride and belonging for students and faculty.

"," Charles Sanders, 
assistant professor of 

history, said, "it's serious business. 

You have to remember, it is the 

Outdoors, not Hale Library. 

If you make a mistake on 
the Kansas River, it'll cost you." 



Hidden Oasis 

continued from page 9 

"People don't appreciate the outdoors or think of what you 
can do," Tyler Wamsley, freshman in construction science and 
management, said. "Most people think alcohol has got to be 
involved to have fun." 

Wamsley and freshmen Adam Schapaugh, fisheries and 
wildlife biology, and Troy Walker, engineering, came to Rocky 
Ford to raft down the small but wide waterfall located about 
a mile below Tuttle Creek Dam and Reservoir. 

"We live in Kansas and most people think, well, it's flat," 
Schapaugh said, "which is why we make it as exciting as 
possible." 

Charles Sanders, assistant professor of history, said he 
believed students did not get involved in outside activities 
for a number of reasons. 

"It requires getting up off the couch and leaving 
Aggieville," Sanders said. "It also requires a certain amount 
of planning. It could be expensive if you get out there and 
realize you forgot a sleeping bag. But once you do it, it's a lot 
of fun for not much effort." 

With a roll of duct tape, a $4 air pump and two $12 pool 
rafts from Alco Discount Stores, Schapaugh, Walker and 



Wamsley tested the limits of the rafts and stayed within the 
budget of the typical college student. 

"Many people don't know about it, but they rent paddles 
and all kinds of equipment at the Rec," Schaupaugh said. 

The Chester E. Peters Recreational Complex rented 
outdoor equipment such as canoes, tents, paddles and coolers 
to K- State students, employees and facilities members. 

Aside from rafting, Rocky Ford also offered opportunities 
for canoeing, kayaking and fishing. 

"A reasonable amount of college students fish out there 
because it's so convenient," said James Dubois, scout master 
and professor of interior architecture. "It's only 10 minutes 
from Manhattan by the time you get your pole in the water. 
There's a range offish in there. Some are good for eating and 
others are just fun to fish for - some will give a good fight." 

Walker, Wamsley and Schapaugh agreed Rocky Ford had 
developed into a family fishing area with plenty of activities 
for anyone. 

"We don't have beaches and mountains, but you also don't 
have to fly to the Konza," Sanders said. "Life's about making 
the best of what you have."

Eagle Scout or first-timer, anyone involved in 
outdoor recreational activities faced potential safety 
hazards. 

Freshmen Tyler Wamsley, construction science 
and management, Adam Schapaugh, fisheries and 
wildlife biology, and Troy Walker, engineering, all 
Eagle Scouts of Troop 74, applied their knowledge 
of Ihe importance of safety to their outings. 

Wearing life vests, bicycle helmets and carrying 
a long rope for possible emergency use, the three 
friends said they never went out alone and tried to 
always observe safety rules. 

"You have to be careful when there's too much 
water," Schapaugh said. "Undercurrents can be 
dangerous."

WEAR AND TEAR took its toll on Memorial Stadium s field. 

Its condition had become so poor that even the rock 
climbing club was banned from climbing the outside walls. 

The football team had long since moved from the old 
stadium, club sports began weighing other playing field 
options and the K- State Marching Band's use of the facility 
all depended on mother nature. 

Plans for artificial turf on the field began four years ago 
and ended when the new field and track reopened Sept. 9, 
Mark Taussig, university landscape architect, said. 

"I kept throwing out the idea that if we put in artificial 
grass, we can play on it 24/7," Taussig said. "You put natural 
grass in there, and you're only going to get on there a couple 
of times a week if you want to use it as a game field where 
there is good grass on it for a game." 

The installed turf expanded the playing area for 
regulation-size soccer, lacrosse and rugby games. 

"This is the closest thing to a pro stadium we'll get to 
play in," said Jim Compton, soccer club member and senior 
in secondary education. "Compared to Arrowhead or some 
other professional stadiums, this field is pretty close." 

The new field provided clubs with a home arena on 
campus, helped in recruitment for opposing teams to 
compete here and extended playing and practice time with 
the addition of eight 1,500 -watt metal halide floodlights. 

Individual students had the opportunity to use the new 
rubberized track circling the playing field. 

"I like to run outside a lot more than I do on a treadmill," 
said Holly Cribbs, sophomore in family and consumer 
education. "It's just really pretty out here and it's a good 
place to come and run with your friends or even just by 
yourself. It's a good place to run because there's lights and 
there's other people here." 

With the renovations, the nearly forgotten, 79 -year- old 
field at Memorial Stadium was reborn, Taussig said. 

"Part of school is learning and the other part is your 
extracurricular activities," he said. "(The stadium) is an 
important part of that extracurricular. Every time I go by 
there, there are kids out there or people in the community 
out running around the track. This has a new lease on life."

Friends, food, purple 
make tailgating a 
popular activity before 
football games 

by Kristen Day & Matt Gorney 

OUTSIDE KSU STADIUM, the smell of hamburgers on 
an open grill wafted through the sea of recreational vehicles. 
A football bounced off the pavement almost clipping a 
pedestrian. Grabbing the ball, a child passed it back to his 
grandfather as pre -game tailgating shifted into high gear. Fans 
came for quality tailgating time as much as the game. 

Kelly Sheik, freshman in open -option, and her family had 
been tailgating for 34 years. Arriving at the stadium hours 
before game time, they pulled their Chevy Suburban into spot 
513 — the same spot they had filled since 1968. 

"My grandpa bought that spot right after the stadium was 
built," Sheik said. "Our family has had it ever since." 

Wildcat fans participated in cookout festivities. 
Conversation ranged from personal lives to a bad referee call 
at a previous game. 

Pre-game activities soared when fans knew the game 
would be televised. Extreme fans showed off artistic ability 
by painting bellies and faces. 

They arrived three hours early to get front row seats at 
the K- State versus USC game, Sept. 21. While waiting, seven 
friends painted "KSU loves TBS" on their stomachs. On their 
backs, players' names and numbers mocked jerseys. 

Mike Edwards, freshman in open-option, stood as the 
middleman with the heart drawn on his stomach. 

"Every time we turned around the camera guy was in our 
faces," Edwards said. "My dad said he saw us on TV and we 
were on the lumboTron a lot." 

A field northeast of the stadium provided an area for

greeks, among others, to tailgate. 

Ben Davis, freshman in civil engineering, said 
tailgating pumped him up for the game. 

Fans filled the stadium to capacity at opening 
kickoff. Supporters screamed as shaking keys and 
pompons added to the atmosphere. The clock counted 
down to the start of the game. For the next four quarters, 
fans got what they came for: a Wildcat victory. 

As the game ended, lines of people swarmed out of 
the field and traffic jammed the streets. 

"After the games, we didn't want to leave early 
because of the traffic," Sheik said. "So we played some 
more catch and tried to get rid of all the food."

Three women become 
models, pose nude in 

Playboy magazine 

by Lindsay Porter 

ADVERTISEMENTS STARTED APPEARING in the 
Collegian in early April for Playboy magazine models. More 
than 50 female students responded. 

Playboy Photo Team representatives interviewed women 
at the Ramada Plaza Hotel April 30 and May 1. Candidates 
needed to show proof of K- State enrollment, a valid driver's 
license and complete a questionnaire. 

After the interview Sarah Vollmer, sophomore in business, 
said she was told Playboy representatives would call to 
schedule a photo shoot. 

"When I was basically told that I had been chosen right 
then and there, I didn't believe it until I was called for 
confirmation of the shoot date," she said. "My photo shoot 
was the last on the whole tour for the Big 12, on May 4." 

Two other K- State women were chosen for the project. 
Vollmer, Tristyn Rutledge, sophomore in open -option, and 
Shauna Cushman, senior in communication sciences and 
disorders, all opted to pose fully nude. 

"Imagine yourself being dolled up for the camera," 
Vollmer said. "Your wardrobe, consisting of enough material 
to barely clothe an infant, is presented and you dress in front of 
these strangers who go about business as usual. Then a topless 
man with a hairy chest and bunny ears (photographer David 
Rams) says, Are you ready?' and proceeds to make you feel like 
the sexiest woman on earth. I was loving every minute." 

The October issue featured 50 women in the 25th edition 
of the "Girls of the Big 12." K- State models visited two Dara's 
Fast Lane stations and Rusty's Last Chance Restaurant and 
Saloon Aug. 29 to sign autographs. 

Dave Debes, junior in civil engineering and Playboy 
subscriber, waited outside Dara's on Fort Riley Boulevard 
with more than 20 men to have his copy signed. 

"It's a once in a lifetime opportunity," he said. "It's worth 
waiting in line for." 

After the publication's release, Vollmer said people had 
presumed she was promiscuous, easy, stupid and lacking in 
personality. 

"I get a lot of static over degrading myself and other women 
by allowing nude photos of me to be ogled by men," she said. 
"Out of millions of women, I have been chosen to be published 
in a national magazine that has a readership of over 15 million 
people a month, but I can't properly enjoy it without someone 
making preconceptions about me. Playboy is a liberal icon. I 
am proud to associate myself with them."

Big; tykes 
little trikes 

by Lindsey Thorpe 

ROARING ENGINES resonated in ears of the cheering 
crowd. Tires squealed as the smell of burned rubber lingered 
in the air. 

It wasn't quite NASCAR but May 15, Rusty 's Outback and 
Rusty's Last Chance Restaurant and Saloon transformed into 
a small-scale National Hot Rod Association racetrack. 

Using rotating rubber pedals for acceleration and chrome 
handlebars for steering, volunteer drivers, hoping to win 
NHRA drag racing tickets, raced Radio Flyer tricycles with 
Budweiser decals. 

The rules: go fast, stay in the lane and play fair. For safety 
reasons, intoxicated drivers were not allowed to participate. 

"We're here to promote safe drinking and let everyone 
know why we think our product is number one," Scott Schon, 
Budweiser on -premise sales manager, said. "We want to bring 
young people together to have a good, safe time. 

"We figured what better way than to simulate a race. 
There's nothing funnier than a 250-pound man on a 12-inch 
tricycle." 

The weight of the contestants, however, proved to be too 
much for the tricycles, causing complications. 

"The handles turned, but the wheel didn't," Schon said 
after a contestant collided into a picnic table. "That's what 
happens when you have big guys on little tricycles." 

Kip Etter, Rusty's bartender, helped Schon tighten and 
straighten the two broken tricycles. 

While waiting for the tricycles to be repaired, Budweiser 
girls roamed the bar recruiting willing drivers. 

The races were organized in a bracket, single-elimina- 
tion style. Whoever crossed the finish line first went on to 
the next round. 

Some participants raced for the tickets while others said 
they just wanted a shot at racing a tricycle. 

Every contestant walked away with a Kenny Bernstein key 
chain. The top three racers, Kelly Katz, senior in elementary 
education; Scott Feldkamp, junior in secondary education 
and Kevin Zimmerman, senior in architectural engineering, 
received a pair of tickets to the NHRA drag races in Topeka.

KSDB spent more than $140,000 
to open a state-of-the-art 
studio in the Union with new 
equipment, greater student 
accessibility, station pride 

by Matt Gorney 

AFTER WORKING three years to move into the K- State 
Student Union, KSDB-FM 91.9 began broadcating from a 
first-floor studio in the Union July 1. 

The new facility caused a resurgence in pride for station 
personnel, Candy Walton, station manager, said. 

"It is a store-front studio. It gives the students an 
opportunity to interact with the DJs," she said. "I am just 
really happy we achieved what we did. A more professional 
feel comes from being watched through the glass." 

Andrea Hufford, senior in psychology, started working at 
the station her freshman year and agreed with Walton. 

"I think our area and atmosphere is very receptive to the 
station," Hufford said. "It puts it in the public more." 

Walton said the station's improved accessibility was 
one of its greatest benefits because the studio was seldom 
visited where it was located on the top floor of McCain 
Auditorium. 

Personnel offices remained in McCain after the studio in 
the Union opened. 

"It kind of sucks still having my office over in McCain," 
said Eric Hoopingarner, music director and junior in social 
science. "If I want anything in my office, I have to walk to 
McCain." 

The station received more than $140,000 from the Union, 
Student Governing Association, and the A.Q. Miller School 
of Journalism and Mass Communications. 

The funds provided office equipment, studio accessories 
and construction and architect fees. 

"We got all of the equipment we wanted, we just didn't 
get quite as nice as I wanted," Hoopingarner said. "It's nice, 
but it's not like top of the line. It's like mid line." 

Although the equipment may not have been top of the line, 
it was considered better than the old, Hufford said. 

"DJs are more likely to take their job seriously because 
of the newer, better equipment," she said. "They feel more 
respected." 

Walton said the move to the Union was a product of efforts 
from the students at KSDB. 

"Students eventually win the day," she said. "It may take 
awhile, but students eventually get things done."

more seniors create larger classes, longer ceremony 

by Michelle Wilmes 

WITH 655 GRADUATES, the College of Arts and Sciences 
boasted its largest class in K- State history. 

Stephen White, interim dean of the college, said 270 more 
students received their diploma in May 2002 than 2001. 

A rise in the number of students invariably put pressure 
on seniors to enroll in all of the required courses. White said 
transfer students and underclassmen often had trouble fitting 
in prerequisite courses because seniors were still signed up 
for them. 

"Classes are to be capped at around 30 students, depending 
on the class," White said. "Most of the time, however, 
professors allow about a half dozen more to enroll in their 
classes to help the students out with graduating on time." 

According to the Office of the Registrar, the Department 
of Biology and the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass 
Communications have been the two largest departments in 
the College of Arts and Sciences in recent years. 

"Because of the requirement of taking a life science in the 
College of Arts and Sciences, there have been some increases 
in the size of the class," Pat Hook, biology instructor, said. 
"The students aren't necessarily the ones who have a problem 
with the class size, though. Often parents are more concerned 
than the kids are." 

Pat Bosco, dean of student life, said as long as freshmen 
and transfer students continue enrolling, there would be 
growth in the number of graduates. To accommodate those 
numbers, the university featured six graduation ceremonies 
in addition to the College of Arts and Sciences. 

"It is important that K- State continue to emphasize classy 
graduation programs because it's a tremendous achievement 
to finish at our school," Bosco said. "The graduates do not 
do it alone. Parents, friends, family, spouses, children, 
grandparents and so many others, including many members 
of the K- State family, have helped."

MASSIVE, BRIGHTLY COLORED BILLBOARDS and 
signs decorated Manhattan lawns and store-fronts during the 
fall campaigning season. Even with their smiling faces and 
catchy slogans, candidates struggled to lure K- State students 
to voting booths. 

Tom Hawk, candidate for the Kansas House of 
Representatives, said running a political campaign 
involving students was part education, part entertainment 
and part persuasion. Hawk attempted to spark students' 
interest in voting by passing out fliers, organizing a concert 
featuring local bands and helping college students register to 
vote. Students involved in Hawk's campaign set up a voter 
registration table and answered questions about voting and 
Hawk's campaign. 

"I think students are confused because they don't know 
where to vote or if they can vote in this district, even if they 
aren't from Manhattan," Hawk said. "Overall, students think 
they don't matter and their opinions aren't important." 

Falling in the lowest voting bracket, 32.3 percent of 18 to 
24 -year- olds voted in the 2000 national election. 

"I believe voting is very important," said Keisha Clark, 
junior in political science and psychology. "People can't 
complain about the results of elections if they don't vote." 

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, college students 
continued to make up the largest age group of non-voters. 



by Rachel Von Uht 

"You can't force it (voting) on college students," Spencer 
Stelljes, senior in political science, said. " Everyone has their 
own opinions about voting." 

For some students, platform issues, such as taxes and social 
security, weren't of much interest. 

"Most students are still dependents," Stelljes said. "We 
don't necessarily see anything coming back to us." 

For a majority of students, voting was not a top priority 
on Nov. 5. 

"I don't think my vote matters in the election," Liz Van 
Zant, freshman in business administration, said. "Politics 
confuse me, so I don't take much interest in them." 

In an effort to get more students to vote, the Student 
Government Association hosted "Cat's Challenge," a 
competition against the University of Kansas. The goal of 
the competition was to get the most students and residents to 
vote during their respective football games Oct. 12. 

Once the results were tallied, the losing school's SGA 
members had to wear the opposing school's colors at the 
Nov. 2 K- State vs. KU football game. 

College students have valuable opinions they should 
share by voting and getting involved in political campaigns, 
Hawk said. 

"Young people have faith and confidence in the future," 
Hawk said. "They should be taken seriously."

Counseling

by Natalie Gervais 

SUNDAY NIGHT, 11 p.m. Your heart pounds heavily 
against your chest. Your muscles ache from tension and 
a massive headache pounds as you try to study for a final 
exam. Your significant other just broke up with you and 
your roommates are pissed off at you for something. Life is a 
mess and you feel you can't take it anymore. 

Now what? 

University Counseling Services was designed to help students 
deal with everyday issues. Stress and anxiety problems made up 
68 percent of reported cases at Counseling Services. 

"College is stressful for students because it is hard to balance 
academics, activities and relationships," Collin Curry, freshman 
in environmental design, said. "Relationships are hard to 
maintain in college because there are many distractions and so 
many different kinds of people that you might be interested in." 

Of the students who used Counseling Services, 62 
percent reported a conflict in their relationships with 
families, friends or their partner. 

"College is stressful because you're really busy with 
school and involved with clubs and work," Kristen Ball, 
graduate student in accounting, said. 

Due to the strains of learning how to balance academics, 
relationships and other college activities, Counseling Services 
designed an interactive Web site for students. The Learning 
Enhancement Assessment Program provided information 
about time management, test-taking strategies and other 
topics that decrease stress levels. 

"What we do is real helpful to students," Fred Newton, 
director for Counseling Services, said. "Our bottom line is 
we want students to be successful." 

Counseling Services was also involved in classroom education. 

"College is a time to figure out what you want to do," 
Alex Cohen, career and life planning instructor, said. "For 
the most part it's getting to know about yourself and getting 
information to make decisions." 

Thirty- three career and life planning courses were taught 
to provide help in improving academic and personal skills. 

"I found out a lot about myself that I didn't realize," 
Jennifer Myers, sophomore in business administration, said. 
"It helped me figure out my values and what I want to do."

Sept. 1 1 Anniversary 31

Commemorating the one-year anniversary of Sept. 11 had "He told us that this was the biggest shoot of our life 



different meaning for individuals around the world. 

For three K- State students, commemorating the one- 
year anniversary of Sept. 11 meant their original percep- 
tions would be altered. The changes in thought came 
as a result of attending the 15th Annual Eddie Adams 
Barnstorm Workshop for collegiate photojournalists in 
Jeffersonville, N.Y. 

"You're rubbing shoulders with people who saw it first 
hand," said Evan Semon, junior in journalism and mass 
communications. "You can hear stories, you can read 
Time magazine and you can watch it on TV, but it's not like 
being there." 

Karen Mikols and Kelly Glasscock, seniors in journal- 
ism and mass communications joined Semon as three of 
the 100 photojournalists attending the workshop, Sept. 
9-12. 

Of the 10 teams at the workshop, Mikols and Glasscock 
were assigned to the sports life team. Semon's team cov- 
ered Coney Island. 

"Before we knew what we were doing and what our 
assignments really were, I think a lot of people expected 
us to be in these mobs of emotional people," Mikols said. 
"I didn't really want to be doing that because that's really 
hard for people. It can be emotionally draining for me, too. 
It's difficult to be in a situation where people are grieving 
in such a way. I was excited to go but I was also hoping that 
I wouldn't be in a situation where they weren't wanting me 
to be there." 

Mikols spent Sept. 11 in the Bronx covering a Yankees 
game and Glasscock was in Central Park covering people 
playing sports. The leader of Semon's group had different 
plans for his team that day. 



and that we should go where we want to," Semon said. "Not 
everyone went to ground zero but I went because I knew I 
would kick myself in the ass if I didn't go. How could you 
not go on such a historic day?" 

The day brought introspection for Glasscock, he said. 

"It was emotional enough just being there that one 
day," Glasscock said. "I couldn't imagine living there and 
living with that every single day. I was walking down the 
street and I was thinking to myself about the actual day of 
Sept.ll, 2001 and what people were going through - being 
right there, being in Manhattan - being evacuated off this 
island not knowing what was going on and hearing sirens, 
seeing all this smoke. It was hectic enough for me being 
there on a normal New York City day, I could not imagine 
what it was like Sept. 11 - during the attacks - that morn- 
ing and throughout that day. 

"Then I think about it as a photographer. Would I be 
able to pick up my cameras and walk against the flow of 
traffic coming across the bridges to shoot this horrific 
scene of towers in smoke and New York City filled with 
ash? I don't know if I would have been able to make it in 
there and do some of the

of the University 



With contributing factors from all sides of 
campus, K-State experienced one of its most 
innovative years in recent history. 

Some of these distinctions were shown for the first time 
in 2003, while others were improvements and reflections 
on the university's foundations. 

More than $100 million was spent on technological 
advancement and construction projects through univer- 
sity and public funding to enhance the attractiveness of 
campus. 

Coping with a $9.3-million university budget cut, 
classes were combined and faculty positions closed, but 
the strength of the educational programming was not 
affected, said Dean Terry King, College of Engineering. 

That strength was evident in the student achievements, 
which were a direct reflection of the excellence, expertise 
and dedication of K-State faculty, President Jon Wefald 
said.

Ahearn Field House 

Built in 1951, Ahearn was 
named in honor of Michael F. 
Ahearn, former K- State professor, 
coach, head of the Department of 
Physical Education and athletics 
director. It was built to improve 
facilities for basketball and indoor 
track events. 

"It cost $1.65 million to build," 
Mark Taussig, university architect, 
said. "It was the first building to be 
completed under President James 
McCain." 

Once the basketball games 
were moved to Bramlage in 1988, 
the building was redesigned for 
volleyball, track, tennis and vari- 
ous other indoor activities. Ahearn 
has a capacity for 11,700 fans. 

All Faiths Chapel 

Located on Vattier Street, All 
Faiths Chapel was dedicated as a 
memorial to the K- State men who 
sacrificed their lives in World War 
II and the Korean War. 

Exceptional care was taken in 
the design of the chapel to achieve 
proper acoustical balance for solo 
instruments and string quartets 
while assuring sufficient resonance 
for organ music. Featured in the 
chapel was a 40 - rank pipe, installed 
in 1961. 

With seating available for 465, 
the chapel was used for everything 
from weddings and memorials to 
music classes and concerts.

sculptures using saplings, 
willow branches and limbs 
found in local surround-

be up about 18 months to 
two years," Lindsay Smith, 
exhibition designer, said.

Anderson Hall 

Built from 1879 to 1884, the 
Practical Agriculture Building 
contained a canteen, barbershop, 
chapel and college library. 

Anderson Hall became the offi- 
cial name of the building in 1902 
when named for John Alexander 
Anderson, the second president of 
Kansas State Agricultural College. 

Today, the building houses 
offices for student services such as 
academic services, admissions, the 
budget office and the Office of the 
Registrar, as well as administrative 
offices. 

Butterfly Conservatory 

Home to hundreds of native 
butterflies, the colorful insects 
could be seen fluttering near the 
Butterfly House. The garden was 
dedicated Sept. 21, but the official 
opening and dedication of the 
exhibit was Oct. 8, 1999. 

Lee Creek Gardens, a sponsor 
of the garden, has supplied annual 
flowers each year to complement the 
perennial plants, which attracted 
butterflies. Searching for nectar 
among the flowers, the butterflies 
were free to fly among visitors. 

Marianna Kistler Beach 
Museum of Art 

Housing creations by famous 
artists, the Beach art museum was 
located on the southeast corner of 
campus. 

The $2-million museum, 
named after a K-State alumna, 
opened Oct. 13, 1996. Since then, 
more than 4,000 works of art have 
been showcased through permanent 
displays, while traveling pieces were 
displayed for variety. 

An exhibit by artist Tony Fitz- 
patrick was on display from Oct. 1 
to Dec. 15. The four- color etchings 
of Max and Gaby's Alphabet, was 
named after his two children and 
included a print for each letter of 
the alphabet. 

Power Plant 

Generating light, heat and 
power for the campus, the Power 
Plant was as an essential part of

K- State. Costing $150,000 in 1927 
and an additional $165,000 in 1928, 
the building replaced an 1882 power 
house that was located in the shop 
area north of Seaton Hall. 

Standing tall above the campus 
was the lone smokestack. 

The Power Plant had a total 
of seven boilers, two no longer in 
operation, that created steam for 
the plant. A portion of the steam 
that went out of the compound 
came back as water to the Power 
Plant, allowing for partial recy- 
cling, Delvin Winfough, electronic 
control center technician, said. 

The Power Plant did not supply 
all the energy for the campus, and 
also used substations and energy 
from Westar Energy. 

President's Residence 

Simply known as Wefald's 
house, the $29,391 home built in 
1923, was located at 100 Wilson 
Court. 

Looking at the outside, one saw 
characteristics of a country French 
house, with ivory stone walls and 
a steep roof. People were drawn to 
the native limestone that harmo- 
nized the house with the rest of the 
campus, Ruth Ann Wefald said. 

"The thing I love is that the 
house was built in 1923 and it stands 
the test of time," she said. "It really is 
just like a timeless building. I think 
that is one of its unique features." 

The house was remodeled in 
1997 to upgrade equipment and 
to expand the kitchen and add a 
garage.

Millions of dollars lost in Kansas revenue forced budget cuts 
across the state. K-State administrators reviewed finances 
and asked colleges to cut more than $9.3 million for fiscal year 
2003. To compensate for part of the lost money, student tuition 
increased 25.1 percent. Individual colleges adjusted course 
loads and faculty positions to lower operating budgets.

College of Agriculture 

Counting $493,000 in teach- 
ing operations and more than $4.5 
million in research and extension, 
agriculture lost 6.64 percent of 
expenses after its tuition allow- 
ance. 

Dean Marc Johnson said there 
was no operating money after 
internal allocations, so the college 
recovered the deficit by perma- 
nently closing six vacant teaching 
positions. 

Individual departments deter- 
mined ways to provide more effi- 
cient teaching operations. Some 
smaller classes were closed while 
others were consolidated, piling 
additional students on professors. 

College of Architecture, 
Planning and Design 

Cutting 4 percent of its oper- 
ating expenses, architecture, 
planning and design cut faculty 



travel from the budget. Hoping to 
save money in office expenses, the 
administration and faculty limited 
copying and took advantage of 
Internet and e-mail, Dean Dennis 
Law said. 

"We're small, and we have list- 
servs to send out announcements to 
faculty and students," he said. "It's 
something we should probably do 
anyway." 

To meet the $198,473 shortfall, 
some vacant faculty positions were 
closed. 

College of Arts and Sciences 

The largest college on campus 
lost a total of $1.57 million due to 
budget reductions. The college's 
tuition allocation made up for all 
but $520,000. 

"We're at a critical point right 
now," Interim Dean Stephen White 
said. "It's high on our priority to 
protect the instructional programs 




in the college." 

Because many arts and sciences 
courses were taken by freshmen and 
for general education credit, the col- 
lege did not want to cut class ses- 
sions, White said. 

To ease the financial burden, the 
college also recruited fewer faculty 
than past years. 

College of Business 
Administration 

Cutting 4 percent from instruc- 
tional funding, the college struggled 
to make up for the $215,343 budget 
shortfall, Dean Yar Ebadi said. 

Business students were charged 
an additional $5 per credit hour. 
Although the college used 100 
percent of the allotment toward 
retention of faculty, it put a freeze 
on three vacant positions, reduced 
the number of graduate teaching 
assistants and cut summer research 



grants. 

The college also dismantled 
five classes comprising the honors 
program and ended 19 years of 
financial support to the Small 
Business Development Center after 
December. 

College of Education 

Although education cut 
$252,409 in spending, it did not 
want the deficit to adversely impact 
students, Dean Michael Holen said, 
so no classes were closed. The col- 
lege cut temporary and part-time 
positions totaling the equivalent 
of five full-time positions. Faculty 
were also restricted by limited sup- 
port for travel reimbursements, 
Holen said. 

College of Engineering 

Engineering added a $5 per- 
credit-hour surcharge to students 



to maintain faculty salaries after 
$529,692 was cut from its budget. 
The 3 -percent deficit was partially 
restored through gifts and research 
contracts, Dean Terry King said. 

"This is pretty serious," King 
said. "We attempted to make sure 
students weren't affected." 

College of Human Ecology 

Asked to cut 3.5 percent 
- $194,473 - from its general fund, 
human ecology withheld an addi- 
tional 4 percent in anticipation of 
future callbacks, Dean Carol Kel- 
lett said. 

She said the college split the 
budget crunch into three parts - not 
filling five vacant faculty positions, 
using its tuition allotment effec- 
tively on operations, equipment 
and technology and using undesig- 
nated funding to retain all sessions 
in course schedules.

Student Government 
Association President 
Zachary Cook 

Cook represented 22,000 
students, though he said he tried 
not to stand out. 

"I didn't like to get introduced 
as the president," said Cook, senior 
in biological and agricultural 
engineering. "Get to know me by 
my merits, not by my title." 

Cook represented students at 
banquets and city-level meetings. 
He helped with long-term university 
planning on the alumni board and 
with university administrators. 

"It's hard work," Cook said. "I 
wasn't that easy to work with in 
the beginning, but I'm learning to 
compromise and work with people, 
trying to work toward a common 
goal. It's definitely a test of patience 
to deal with different people." 

K-State Honorary Family 

A loyal K-State family, the 
Hooblers became K-State's 2002 
Honorary Family. Tina Hoobler, 
senior in agricultural economics, 
said she wrote the winning essay 
because she wanted to let her family 
know how much their support 
meant to her. 

Tina, along with her parents, 
Larry and Diane Hoobler, and her 
sisters Tammy and Tonya received 
the award at K- State's Family Day 
activities, Sept 28. 

Aaron Jantz, Intramural 
Manager 

An important figure in 
intramurals, Jantz, senior in finance, 



completed much of the behind- 
the-scenes work for thousands of 
students who participated in the 
program. 

"I was in charge of getting the 
officials ready and training them," 
Jantz said. "Then on a regular day, 
I gave out assignments. I would also 
set up events and supervise them." 

Jantz not only supervised, but 
played as well. 

"When I came up to K-State, I 
already knew some older guys," he 
said, "so we started a team and then 
played all of the sports." 

Scholarship Nominee 
Darcy Kern 

Nominated for two prestigious 
scholarships, Kern, senior in history, 
pre-law, Spanish and French with a 
minor in leadership studies, was the 
only student selected as a nominee 
for both the Rhodes and Marshall 
scholarships. 

Both scholarships offered 
between $40,000 and $60,000 
to support a student studying in 
England for two years . 

Black Student Union 
President Paris Rossiter 

Founded in 1969, the mission 
of the BSU, according to the 
organization's Web site, was to 
communicate the academic, 
cultural and social needs of black 
students as well as others in the 
college community. 

Rossiter, junior in art, 
represented the 34-year-old 
organization. 

"As president of the Black

Student Union, I am a spokesperson 
and delegate to the greater campus," 
Rossiter said. "I hope I speak well for 
the Union." 

Although he was president, 
Rossiter said he let the people lead. 

Greek Affairs President 
Jeffrey Rundle 

Representing the 4,000- 
member greek community 
challenged Rundle, senior in civil 
engineering. 

"I was in charge of eight 
officers in the executive council," 
Rundle said. "We also had biweekly 
meetings and an executive meeting 
at the end of each semester." 

As a former chapter president of 
Beta Theta Pi, Rundle's focus shifted 
to a larger scale, Rundle said. 

"I had to make sure we all did 
everything right," he said. "It's a 
bigger job." 

Willie the Wildcat 

A time-honored tradition at K- 
State, Willie the Wildcat represented 
the spirit of the university. 

The selection of Wille, which 
occured in late April with the 
cheer squad tryouts, was based on a 
performance of a comedy skit using 
creativity and enthusiasm. 

He performed at tailgates, and 
at home and away football games, 
including postseason play. He was 
also present at most home basketball 
and volleyball games. 

One of the most recognizable 
faces on campus, the identity of the 
man behind the mask has always 
remained a secret.

Arlo Biere, professor of 
agricultural economics 

As undergraduate program 
coordinator, Biere organized fac- 
ulty advising, recruited prospec- 
tive students and looked for ways 
agricultural economics could better 
meet the needs of students through 
their educational experiences, job 
searching and life, he said. 

"I try to make students feel 
comfortable," Biere said. "I use 
fair Socratic questioning in class. 
Learning should be a conversation. 
It's more interesting for students." 

Gary Coates, professor of 
architecture 

Encouraged by former students, 
Coates came to K- State in 1977 for 
the quality of the architecture pro- 
gram and administrational leader- 
ship, he said. 

Coates' fall 2001 design studio 
was awarded the top American 
Institute for Architects Education 
Honor for their project on afford- 
able housing for Manhattan. The 
fall 2002 class continued working 
on research and designs. 

"The project had students tack- 
ling real-world issues," Coates said. 
"It's an honor to be able to work 
with young people to help them 
become who knows what." 

Michael Finnegan, professor 
of sociology, anthropology 
and social work 

When students were interested 
in forensic pathology, they were 
sent to Finnegan. Because there 
was no program for forensic sci- 
ence, Finnegan worked with stu- 
dents to find classes in the medical 
or criminology fields to fulfill their 
dreams, he said. 

"Usually the students who 
come around are better students," 
Finnegan said. "It's nice to be able 
to help somebody get in the right 
classes and talk to the right profes- 
sors." 

Finnegan helped students find 
internships in areas of forensic 
pathology and pre-medicine. He 
was responsible for the museology 



interns where students worked in 
museums. 

Marjorie Hancock, associate 
professor of elementary 
education 

Part of Hancock's work in ele- 
mentary education involved work- 
ing with professional development 
schools where students worked as 
student- teachers to gain experience. 
Hancock also worked with public 
school teachers to supervise K- State 
students. 

She said she encouraged volun- 
teerism for students to work with 
children as well as active participa- 
tion in class discussions. 

"I challenge them academi- 
cally," Hancock said. "I have high 
expectations but provide informa- 
tion they need to be good teachers, 
so they'll be the best teachers they 
can be." 

Carol Ann Holcomb, 
professor of human nutrition 

Chair of academic affairs for 
the College of Human Ecology 
and a member of the Institute 
Review Board on human research, 
which monitors safety of research 
on human participants, Holcomb 
joined the K- State faculty in 1979. 

"I help students by providing 
them with a positive experience in 
classes through learning, direction 
in academics, being supportive and 
respectful and helping each one to 
meet their full potential," she said. 
"I spend a lot of time with students. 
I take an interest in students' per- 
sonal lives - where they come from, 
their goals, what they enjoy." 

Ray Hightower, assistant 
dean of engineering 

Hightower advised more than 
200 general engineering students. 

"I like working with students 
and helping with their problems," 
he said. "It keeps me young." 

No longer instructing students 
in the classroom, Hightower used 
his experience in engineering and 
at K- State to present orientation 
sessions and chair a committee for 



academic standards within the Col- 
lege of Engineering. 

Hightower devised a study guide 
tailored for engineering students 
that emphasized the importance of 
study skills. 

He encouraged students to 
participate in engineering activi- 
ties because they develop people 
and team skills, Hightower said. 
He also helped initiate Mentors for 
International Experiences in May 
2002 and the Engineering Ambas- 
sadors Association in 1981. 

Swinder Janda, associate 
professor of marketing 

In 1997, after completing doc- 
torate work at the University of 
Arkansas and moving to Southern 
California, Janda returned to the 
Midwest to teach at K- State. 

"I stayed because I like the 
students," he said. "They are really 
nice and getting along makes life 
easy and more fun." 

For his marketing research 
class, Janda gave students projects 
to analyze data as opposed to read- 
ing books and taking exams. 

"I make them think," he said. 
"That's what we're here for - to 
think in situations and figure out 
solutions."

A.Q. Miller School of 
Journalism and Mass Com- 
munications Media Lab 

Small, unmarked and highly 
technological like its namesake, the 
Bat Cave, the School of Journalism 
and Mass Communications' media 
lab, was the most technologically 
advanced room in Kedzie Hall. 

The total investment of 
$100,000 supplied students with 
top - of- the -line technology in audio 
and video editing equipment. The 
lab was open to all branches of the 
journalism and mass communica- 
tions curricula. 

Bioterrorism Facility 

The state of Kansas received 
$1.67 million to prevent terrorist 
attacks on agriculture. 

Part of that money was used 
to build a diagnostic and response 
facility at K- State. The site helped 
protect plants and animals from ter- 
rorism-related biological threats. 

Since food and animal sciences 
were so closely integrated, faculty, 
staff and students in the building 
worked closely with the College of 
Veterinary Medicine.

physics and Jing Li, graduate in 
physics, developed a micro -sized 
optical element that could produce 
and detect light. 

Work on the project began 
immediately after Jiang's arrival on 
campus in 1988. 

The optical structure's diam- 
eter was smaller than a human hair 
and based on one Ill-nitride wide 
band gap semiconductor. It had the 
potential to save billions of dollars in 
energy costs globally, and increased 
a light or display's lifetime by almost 
1,000 percent. 

Principles of Biology 
Studio Lab 

Designed with the idea that 
students learn differently, the Prin- 
ciples of Biology Studio lab served 
800 students every semester. 

With two professors, two gradu- 
ate teaching assistants and three 
practicums monitoring each of the 
10 sections at all times, the biology 
lab was the only one of its kind in 
the country. In the lab were 44 
Gateway computers and an assort- 
ment of dissecting and compound 
microscopes. 

Total value of the lab was esti- 
mated at about $2 million. Sections 
of 80 students each were in the lab 
daily from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., and 
7 to 9 p.m. 

Technology in the Classroom 

In a year ruled by budget cuts, 
technology in the classroom proved 
to be vital and cost-efficient. 
Equipped with computers, ELMO 
projectors, televisions, VCRs and 
wireless microphones, instructors 
in Bluemont, Cardwell, Dickens, 
Kedzie and Seaton halls saved 
space, time, paper and money by 
teaching in an audio-visual format 
as opposed to the traditional hand- 
out-and-lecture style. 

"I am specifically interested in 
exploring how to expand the use of 
visual information in my courses," 
Harald Prins, professor of anthro- 
pology, said. "Communication has 
become extremely visually oriented. 
Students nowadays are much more 
visually oriented than in the past. 
They read fewer books and see 
more television. In the classroom 



you cannot permit yourself to have 
dead moments." 

Terry C. Johnson Center for 
Basic Cancer Research 

Located in the new addition to 
Ackert Hall, the Terry C. Johnson 
Center for Basic Cancer Research 
featured administrative and devel- 
opmental offices, as well as an 
educational outreach room. 

The center was named after 
Terry Johnson, cancer researcher 
and university- distinguished pro- 
fessor. Johnson lost his own battle 
with cancer two weeks after the 
center was renamed in his honor. 
"Dr. Johnson is so deserving of this 
honor," President Jon Wefald said. 
"Terry's accomplishments for the 
cancer center (and) for the division 
of biology over the years, were truly 
extraordinary." 

The center also housed admin- 
istrative offices for BioServe Space 
Technologies, a NASA commercial 
space center, which Johnson had 
directed. 

Veterinary Medical Teaching 
Hospital, Radiology Section 

A $1 -million renovation gave 
one of the top veterinary medicine 
programs in the country cutting- 
edge technology in the field. 

To accomodate the new com- 
plex technology, the College of 
Veterinary Medicine renovated 
three rooms in the Veterinary 
Medicine Teaching Hospital with 
copper-shielded walls, doors and 
windows. 

"We have purchased the most 
technologically advanced equip- 
ment available," Dr. Roger Fing- 
land, director of the hospital, said. 
"We have cross-sectional imaging 
capability that parallels human 
medicine and is unsurpassed in 
veterinary medicine." 

Used on small animals and 
horses, computed tomography 
and magnetic resonance imaging 
assimilated multiple X-ray images 
into a cross-sectional image and 
examined internal structures of 
the body. The equipment, rarely 
available for large animals, offered 
the same specialized medical care 
used on humans.

Calvin Hall 

Construction calmed safety 
concerns about Calvin's new 
entrance, which took 105 days to 
complete. 

The old entrance had a steep 
slope, which, during winter, became 
icy, causing students to slip. 

"Calvin Hall is somewhat 
unique in that both sides of the 
building could be considered to 
be the front," said Sondra Visser, 
budget director for the College of 
Business Administration. 

Visser said the new entrance 
was installed on the west side of 
the building because most students 
entered from that side. 

Chalmers Hall 

Home to the Terry C. Johnson 
Center for Basic Cancer Research, 
the 56,000 -square -foot addition to 
Ackert Hall included 12 new cancer 
research laboratories. 

The center included eight 
research suites, departmental 
offices and four instructional labs. 
Once built, it gave instructors and 
students needed space for class- 
rooms and research laboratories. 

The $11.9 million addition 
was constructed on the east side of 
Ackert and named in honor of John 
Chalmers, a former dean of the Col- 
lege of Arts and Sciences. 

Grain Science Center 

The Department of Grain Sci- 
ence and Industry began construct- 
ing a $60 -million Grain Science 
Center in September.

The center was funded through 
public and private funds. The new 
Grain Science Center thrived with 
updated equipment and facilities. 

K- State was the only campus 
internationally offering bachelor's 
degrees in baking science, feed sci- 
ence and milling science through 
the grain science and industry 
department. 

The building program included 
constructing five buildings - a feed 
mill, flour mill, bioprocessing and 
industrial value-added program, 
international grain center and 
teaching research building. 

"The facilities we were in were 
old," Brendan Donnelly, grain sci- 
ence department head, said. "We 
needed to bring our facilities and 
equipment into the 21st century." 

Herbarium 

More than 185,000 specimens 
of plants were housed in the oldest, 
largest and most diverse herbarium 
in the Great Plains. Due to the 
amount of preserved plant speci- 
mens, staff started a computerized 
database. 

"A database of specimens never 
replaces specimens," said Carolyn 
Ferguson, assistant professor and 
curator of the herbarium. "A data- 
base made them more accessible." 

Information ranged from a 
plant's scientific name, to its habitat, 
to what insects pollinated on it. 

KSU Stadium 

$800,000 worth of artificial 
grass replaced the 11 -year- old turf 
on Wagner Field. 

FieldTurf was chosen because it 
allowed a safe ground for athletes. 
The turf reduced motion-related 
injuries and allowed players to wear 
cleats without ruining the field. 

FieldTurf used coated fibers, 
and an open weave system that 
combined Nike Grind rubber and 
sand infilling. 

Because of postponed construc- 
tion, the April 27 Spring Game was

Peine Gate 

Located on the southwest 
corner of campus, the gates reading, 
"Kansas State University, Founded 
1863" welcomed visitors to K- State. 
The two 45 -foot- wide and 10 foot- 
high sections of the limestone gate 
replaced the gate donated by the 
Class of 1916. 

Caroline Peine, former assistant 
dean of student life, and her brother, 
Perry Peine, donated funds for the 
gate on behalf of their family. Two 
markers were saved from the old 
gate and were embedded into the 
new gate's west side. 

Union Forum 

To meet American Disabilities 
Act requirements for Forum Hall, 
the K- State Student Union spent 
$166,000 on renovations. 

Construction on the updated 
installments began in June and 
ended in December. 

The entrance of Forum was 
replaced with automatic doors 
and the restrooms were updated to 
accommodate a disabled person. 
An automatic lift was installed on 
the stairs and several seats were 
designed for wheelchairs.

Escaping the distractions of noisy 
neighborhoods, ringing telephones and the 
lures of the television screen, some students 
found the best way to focus on schoolwork 
was to retreat to lesser-known hideaways 
\JL around campus. 

Seclusion 



Bluemont Bell 

The 513 -pound bell, donated 
by Joseph Ingalls to the Bluemont 
College in 1861, moved to Ander- 
son Tower in 1882 until 1995 when 
it was moved between Bluemont, 
Holton and Dickens halls. 

Mounted on a 7-foot high struc- 
ture supported by four light poles, 
the bell hung above the benches 
used for studying or relaxing. 

"I see a lot of students studying," 
said Rebecca Kline, senior in family 
studies and human services. "It is 
one of the biggest and nicest bench 
areas on this side of campus." 

Cat's Pause 

Contemporary furniture, tran- 
quil lighting and a gas log fireplace 
in Cat's Pause were designed to be 
part of a living room for students 
longing for home, said Libby

"The comfy atmosphere with 
the fireplace and chairs leads to little 
intimate corners where people can 
have conversations or curl up with 
a book," she said. "It is a highly uti- 
lized space by the students." 

Clock Area 

Situated on the north side of 
Holtz Hall, students sat on wooden 
benches surrounding a four- sided 
clock. Kevin Halbach, 1975 senior 
in architecture, and James Shepard, 
university architect, designed the 
area completed in 1975. 

The glass dials of the 13 -foot tall 
clock, gifts from the classes of '68, 
'71, '73 and '74, were lit at night. 

Durland Pyramid 

Shaded by the limbs of the tall 
panicled goldenraintrees, a concrete 
pyramid created by the former 
engineering honorary Sigma Tau, 
marked the accomplishments of 
engineering students. Previously 
located in front of the east doors of 
Ahearn Field House, the pyramid 
was moved to the southeast corner 
of Durland Hall in 1987. 

According to Kansas State 
Collegian archives, benches were 
installed around the planters in 
1990 to enhance the beauty of the 
area and keep skateboarders from 
causing damage. 

Farrell Library Great Room 

A cathedral-like ceiling and 75- 
year-old wooden tables on the third 
floor of Hale Library contributed to 



what Pat Patton called one of the 
best-kept secrets on campus. 

"The beauty and size of it creates 
a tranquility that is very conducive 
to studying," Patton, university 
archives research specialist, said. 
"It's like what you would see of a 
college in the movies. It's so elegant, 
it surprises people." 

Grover C. Cobb Memorial 

Visible from the south side of 
campus, a set of KSAC radio trans- 
mitter towers marked the Grover C. 
Cobb Memorial. 

Beneath one tower, a fountain, 
designed with the call letters of 
area radio stations, bubbled in the 
middle of three redwood benches. 

The towers built in 1924 were 
placed on the National Register of 
Historic Sites and Places Aug. 27, 
1983 as the only towers of their 
kind still standing. 

Seaton Courtyard 

One tree planted on Earth Day 
12 years ago, evolved to an assort- 
ment of plants around a walkway. 

The outdoor enclosure of Seaton 
Court planned and funded by Fayez 
Huseini and his environmental 
design studio in 1990, was designed 
with the intent to improve the look 
of the area and control flooding. 

Concrete and wooden benches 
provided seating for the students. 

The courtyard was deemed a 
memorial for 15 K-State environ- 
mental design and architecture 
design students who had died while 
still in school.

earn degrees 

by Jaci Boydston 

WHEN MAXSON IRSIK, senior in business 
administration, graduated Dec. 14, his father, Max, sat in the 
audience cheering for him. However, Irsik's father differed 
from most parents — he had just earned a degree from 
K- State as well, his third. 

"My whole family is extremely honored," Max Irsik, 
graduate student in agribusiness, said. "They just love Kansas 
State." 

Max, who completed a doctorate of veterinary medicine in 
1977, said he decided to take advantage of the award-winning 
agribusiness program because it was almost entirely Web- 
based. 

"I looked at getting an M.B.A. years earlier," Max said. "I 
saw the opportunity with distance education and I thought 
it would really work for my schedule." 

Although Max did most coursework from home, he and 
his family found it to be a much larger time commitment 
than expected. 

"When he was home from work, he was in his office," 
Linda Irsik, Max's wife, said. "We saw very little of each 
other." 

Maxson said his father was one of the few people who 
could survive such a strenuous program. 

"It would take a lot more discipline than 90 percent of us 
are willing to put out," Maxson said. "I think the program 
was really good for him." 

When Max first decided to work for his masters in 
agribusiness, Maxson, as a business major, worried some of 
the courses would be too difficult for him. 

"I was concerned as far as whether master level business 
classes would be good for him," Maxson said. "I shouldn't 
have been concerned." 

Although the two were enrolled in classes at the same time, 
they decided against competing academically. 

"We talked about having a grades competition," Maxson 
said, "but I didn't want to get my butt kicked." 

Despite the hard work Max put toward achieving his 
degree, he decided not to participate in his commencement, 
opting to attend his son's instead. 

"I've been through two (graduations)," Max said. "I'm 
proud to see my son go through."

Faced with decisions 
of how to pay for holiday 
purchases students consider 
several solutions 

by Jacob Walker 
:HRISTMAS and a 
massive crowd of shoppers streamed through Manhattan 
Town Center in search of that special gift. 

The holiday crowd complicated mall shopping, Rebecca 
Rogers, freshman in journalism and mass communications, 
said. 

"It was crazy," Rogers said, "I guess that it was last-minute 
shopping for most people, but I usually put it off 'til later, like 
two or three days before Christmas." 

The Christmas shopping season, with various sales and 
gift-buying pressure, was a time students turned to credit 
cards for easy access to holiday cash, said Joyce Cantrell, 
instructor in family studies and human services. 

"The holidays tend to bring greater temptations," Cantrell 
said. "It's all right to put gifts on a credit card as long as you 
can pay the bill when it comes. You have to live within your 
means." 

A credit card could be used for its convenience, or to take 
advantage of sales when the money was not easily accessible, 
she said. 

"I use mine for Christmas sales that pop up," Rogers said, 
"or any sale, really." 

According to a 2000 Nellie Mae report on student credit 
card debts, 78 percent of undergraduate students used one 
credit card or more. However, some students chose to pay 
with cash. 

"I never use a credit card; I don't even have one," Cole 
Taylor, junior in agronomy, said. "I just make sure I have 
enough cash on me." 

Students also found other methods of obtaining funds for 
holiday expenses, such as selling used items back to Aggieville 
merchants. 

"I get a lot of students who come in this time of year to 
trade CDs in for gift money," Jeff Uhlarik, owner of the CD 
Tradepost, said. "They also come in to get gift certificates 
for presents."

Center, Amy Folkerts, 
freshman in open-option,

the holiday decorations 
before continuing to shop 
for Christmas presents.

when I go shopping," 
Pamela Shelite, junior in 
secondary education, said.

Chartwell Dining Service gives children a chance to mingle with Mr. and Mrs. Claus 

by jaci Boydston 
FOR TWO MORNINGS in December, local children 

and their parents had the opportunity to meet some of the 

season's biggest celebrities: Frosty the Snowman, Santa's elves 

and Santa and Mrs. Claus. 

Breakfast with Santa, organized by Chartwell Dining 
Services, took place in Union Station Dec. 7 and 14. 

"I think they really liked it," said Pamela Hurt, Chartwell 
employee and junior in elementary education. "A lot of them 
were getting their pictures taken with Frosty and Santa." 

Dressed as an elf, Hurt greeted patrons as they filed in 
for breakfast and the chance to sit on Santa's lap. Four of the 
costumes — worn by Mrs. Claus, 
Frosty and two elves — were made 
by Pam Soeken, Chartwell catering 
director. 

"I was quite excited when she 
said I could put it on," Hurt said. "I 
like being an elf." 

Though the costumes were 
homemade, Hurt said she did not 
mind wearing them. 

"They're a little odd-fitting, 
but they're not uncomfortable," 
Hurt said. "The hat was a little 
warm at first." 

While the elves greeted 
customers, bussed tables and helped frazzled parents carry 
plates from the buffet, Santa and Mrs. Claus listened to 
children's Christmas requests and posed for pictures. 

"(I love) just seeing all the little kids," Soeken, Mrs. Claus, 
said. "Some are so excited and some are so shy." 

Soeken said she heard a variety of Christmas wishes, 
ranging from trains and Barbies to Sony PlayStations and 
Rescue Heroes. 

"There was one child who did ask for clothes," Larissa 
Stoddard, Chartwell employee, said. "I couldn't believe it." 

The food and entertainment cost $2 per person, which 
Soeken said was inexpensive. 

"We were just trying to cover costs and give kids a chance 
to have breakfast with Santa," Soeken said. "It's a Christmas 
present to the community."

season, Adam Gibbs,

breakfast. "Frosty did the

student ambassadors learn to manage classwork, duties, recruiting 

bv Jennifer Newberrv 



C- STATE as student 
ambassadors. Seniors Mandy Achilles, mass communication, 
and Blake Bauer, agribusiness, were elected from 22,762 
students in a campus-wide vote Nov. 6. The winners were 
announced Nov. 9 at the football game versus Iowa State. 

"I knew a lot of the duties that were going to be asked of 
me and I felt that I was able to fill those duties fairly well, so 
I thought I would try for the position," Bauer said. "This is a 
goal I had set for myself a year ago. I felt that I filled the criteria 
fairly well and it just fell together really well." 

Adviser Melissa Decker- Heidrick said she thought both 
were qualified for the year-long position. 

"They are both wonderful representatives of the student 
body," Decker-Heidrick, associate director of alumni 
programs, said. "They are intelligent, hard working, fun 
students. They are all about what K-State students are 
about." 

The responsibilities of student ambassadors were three- 
fold, Bauer said. 

The first side involved working with the student alumni 
board, recruiting high school juniors for a program called Just 
for Juniors. The second involved traveling with the Alumni 
Association to events around Kansas for recruitment. 

"The first time we did a presentation, I was both excited 
and nervous," Achilles said. "Once the presentation was over 
with, it was like our first task was completed and we could go 
out and be ourselves and talk with people." 

The final side involved representing the student body at 
different events, such as receptions for Landon Lecturers or 
other luncheons, as directed by the president's office. 

"The job has pretty much been what I've expected; there 
really haven't been any surprises," Achilles said. "It's been 
a little surprising to have gotten so many letters from the 
president's office to attend different events on campus. I didn't 
think there would be quite that many." 

Another part of the ambassadors' responsibilities was to 
demonstrate what K-State offered to prospective students 



uncertain about the college. 

"K- State's a great university; anyone who's here can see 
that," Bauer said. "My job is to show all the sides of K-State 
and how it can relate to any kind of person — from greek life 
to housing and getting involved on campus, to academics 
and scholarships." 

Representing the university was not without its 
challenges. 

"You have to fight over some of the thoughts in people's 
heads — that you're going to be sitting in classes of over 500," 
he said. "It's not any different though. You go and take notes 
like you would in any other class." 

Students who did not have a family member attend K- 
State were the most difficult students to recruit, Bauer said. 

"The biggest thing that I always talk with students about, if 
they're not specifically asking questions, is the atmosphere of 
K- State and how my experiences with that have been," Achilles 
said. "My other advice that I give is to go visit other colleges 
because that's the only way that they'll know that K-State has 
that great atmosphere and is really a good place to be." 

The ambassadors related to all groups of people, Decker- 
Heidrick said. 

"They meet all different people such as alumni, prospective 
students' parents, prospective students and peers," Decker- 
Heidrick said. "It's a big challenge with all of those age groups 
and their different interests." 

Though the student ambassadors had an important 
position, both asserted they were students like everyone 
else. 

"I'm in different groups on campus, so just managing 
my time and representing the university might be one of 
my biggest challenges — balancing everything out — and 
showing that I'm just another regular student out talking to 
them," Bauer said. "We're just one of the other students who 
wakes up and goes to class at 8:30 like everyone else. 

I don't see a problem in keeping up. I think my plate is 
full, but well balanced."

A KEY ELEMENT OF THE 
PRESENTATIONS, Bauer 
works with Willie the 
Wildcat to explain the 
ins and outs of being 
a K-State student to 
prospective students. 
"Mandy and I will give a 
presentation, and explain 
things that you wouldn't 
have known coming out 
of high school and so 
it's a good introduction 
for them," Bauer said. 
"This gives them an 
opportunity to think 
about K- State and see 
students one-on-one and 
ask questions." — Photo

Mandy Achilles, mass

Blake Bauer, agribusiness,

I were preparing, it was 
hard to find time for both 
of us to do it," Achilles 
said, "but I'm so happy 
to be able to work with 
him. He's been more than 
incredible." Achilles said 
she was excited about 
talking with prospective 
students. — Photo by

Rent takes 
over McCain 

by Jaci Boyclston 

G the technically complicated, award -winning 

musical, "Rent," to K- State was not as difficult as Jacob Urban, 

McCain Auditorium public programmer and performance 

technician, originally expected. 

Urban attributed the smooth set-up to the experienced 
traveling road crew, The Booking Group. 

"This went up faster than it should have," he said. "They 
know what they're doing. It flew up." 

The Feb. 25 performance was for a sold -out crowd, which 
had not happened since 1999, when the Russian National 
Ballet performed "Swan Lake." 

"('Rent') was different because it's so quick," Steimel, 
senior in architectural engineering, said. "It's over and done 
within 24 hours." 

The production company arrived and began work at 8 
a.m. the day of the performance. They worked with a 43- 
person crew, comprised of McCain and K- State Student Union 
employees, and K- State and University of Kansas students, to 
prepare for the 7:30 p.m. performance. 

"Rent" provided all props, lights and set. 

"They know exactly what they want," Urban said. "They 
don't have to customize." 

Although problems sometimes arose with traveling road 
crews, George Stavropoulos, sophomore in theater, said the 
group was easy to work with. 

"There's a different set of hurdles to deal with, with 
each road crew," Stavropoulos said. "This crew is tons more 
professional." 

The crew was specific in what they needed, Urban said. 

"If we just do what they tell us to do, everyone's happy," he 
said. "It's actually not that bad. The show goes by quickly." 

Since "Rent" was only in town one night, the set had to 
be taken down immediately after the performance. The crew 
continued work until after midnight. 

"The hours don't really wear on you until about half an 
hour before we get to go home," Urban said. "But we're like 
family. We have no other friends. I've never seen a fight." 

Stavropoulos said the late nights did not bother him, 
because he enjoyed gaining theater experience. 

"Being an actor, I'm used to the long hours," Stavropoulos 
said. "Doing shows like this really makes you appreciate what 
goes on. Theater's contagious."

by Jacob Walker 

COVERED IN A ROSY GLOW from lights wrapped in 
a veil of red gossamer, residence hall students entered the 
transformed K- State Student Union Ballroom at the annual 
Winter Ball, Feb. 15 

During the night of dancing, music and refreshments, 
nearly 200 students enjoyed the ballroom's expansive dance 
floor and decorations, Kahlen Ryba, sophomore in English, 
said. 

"I really liked that it was in the Union," she said. "It's a nice 
central location, and the dance floor was really big." 

The Winter Ball, sponsored by the Association of Residence 
Halls, was an opportunity for students to attend a formal 
dance, with the option of dressing casually, Ryba said. 

"It was technically a formal, but some people just came in 
regular clothes," she said. "I always love an excuse to get all 
dressed up, so my friends and I all came in formals." 

The Winter Ball's theme "Gifts From the Heart," lent itself 
to the romantic dance setting and also to the idea of giving, 
Julia Haney, sophomore in business administration, said. 

"Since the theme was about giving, we took donations to 
give to the (Flint Hills) Breadbasket," Haney said. "We raised 
almost $1,400 to send them." 

The dance also served as a way for students in other halls 
to come together outside of a classroom setting. 

"I just love going to see everyone all dressed up, not just 
going to a class or walking around the dorm," Rebecca Jones, 
sophomore in elementary education, said. "I was glad all my 
friends from Moore (Hall) got to meet my friends from Ford 
(Hall)." 

The ballroom seemed to be set up with everything 
students could want for a dance, Ryba said. 

"The DJ was really great; there was a huge dance floor so 
it wasn't crowded," she said. "They had a bunch of tables for 
food and people who weren't dancing. It was a blast."

Dollar specials, unique 
atmosphere attract students to 
Aggieville Thursday nights; some 
sacrifice Friday classes as others 
prove academic endurance 

by Nabil Shaheen and Linclsey Thorpe 

and Friday morning classes, 
low prices and an early start to the weekend lured students to 
Aggieville Thursday nights. 

With a 155,000 BTU heater welcoming cold customers 
at the front of Rusty's Last Chance Restaurant and Saloon, 
students could turn left to play billiards, walk straight into 
the front bar or keep going farther to the louder Rusty's 
Outback. 

"Rusty's, that's where everybody seems to go," Jody 
Santure, freshman in open- option, said. "They might go to 
different bars all night, but everyone always ends up here." 

As the night turned into early morning, some students 
accepted the fact classes would not be attended the next day, 
while others reveled in the challenge. 

"I have five classes on Friday, but I still manage to go to all 
of them," Haley Thompson, junior in marketing, said. "I have 
a 7:30 a.m., but I still make it. I'm a morning person." 

The Thursday night atmosphere had a much different feel 
than that of the weekend, Santure said. 

"It's the cheap drinks," he said. "I have about 10 or 12 
buddies here, it's just a different crowd." 

Matt Thompson, sophomore in kinesiology, agreed, 
especially when it came to students of the female variety. 

"There are better looking women," Thompson said. "It 
seems like more girls come out since they usually go home 
on the weekends." 

One important aspect, especially in times of bad economy, 
was the low expense and affordable specials offered, which 
was the ultimate siren's song, Neely Holland, senior in mass 
communication, said. 

"I'll spend maybe $5-6 on a Thursday night," Holland 
said. "I'd rather go out on a Wednesday or Thursday because 
it is less expensive. It's probably about $10 cheaper if I go 
out on Thursday. A beer is $1 on Thursday, but on Friday 
it's $2.50."

Air show 
takes flight 

by Matt Gorney 

INSTEAD OF NAVIGATING AIRPLANES, students from 
the College of Technology and Aviation directed attention 
toward their school at the Aerospace and Aviation Show at 
Manhattan Town Center, Sept. 21-22. The show gave the 
public an opportunity to interact with student pilots. 

"We wanted to get the name out for K- State -Salina," Eric 
Scott, freshman in professional pilot, said, "and get people 
interested in aviation and flying." 

Booths were set up near the west entrance to the Town 
Center and included different demonstrations of flying and 
informational handouts about the school. 

"This was our first year," Marlon Johnston, aviation 
department head, said. "It helped us recruit people who are 
already interested in K- State." 

Mandi Bellamy, sophomore in airway science, admitted 
she did not know about the school until she stumbled upon 
it while online. She had originally planned to attend another 
aviation college out of state, but felt lucky when she found 
K-State-Salina. 

Bellamy came from a family of aviators and had always 
enjoyed flying, she said. 

"Flying is very cool. It's something that not everybody 
does," Bellamy said. "I come from three generations of pilots 
and I cannot imagine not being able to fly." 

In addition to being a recruiting tool, the show brought 
aviation groups together. 

"It gave the opportunity to bring several aspects of the 
local aviation committee together in Manhattan," Johnston 
said. "I thought it was really interesting." 

Bellamy said she wanted to be part of anything involving 
aviation and going to the show was logical for her. 

"I explained information about the aviation program at 
K- State -Salina," Bellamy said. "(I) tried to help them with any 
aviation questions or college questions that they had."

Glover, Justice educate students about influential black leaders through their work 



ACTORS DANNY GLOVER AND FELIX JUSTICE 

brought the leader of the civil rights movement, along with 

one of the foremost poets of the Harlem Renaissance, to life. 

Union Program Council sponsored the Jan. 21 presentation 

of, "An Evening with Martin and 

Langston." 

"It directly ties into our Martin 

Luther King Week events," Mark 

Threeton, graduate program adviser 

for the UPC, said. "It's a message we 

wanted to bring to K- State." 

The presentation included 

Justice reciting a speech King gave 

shortly before his death in 1968, 

and Glover reciting several poems 

by Langston Hughes. Audience 

members had the opportunity to 

ask questions at the end. 

"The entire performance was 

very powerful," Dionica Bell, 

sophomore in journalism and 

mass communications, said. "I've 

always been an advocate of the 

Martin Luther King holiday because 

I think it's an important part of my 

at McCain Auditorium, history and my heritage." 

Glover relates the 

importance of Hughes' 

message and life. "We 

want to extend ourselves 

in fighting for what is just 

and fighting for what is 

right," Glover said.

Glover and Justice have been performing their two -man 
show since 1992. In that time, they have visited more than 200 
college campuses and venues in Africa and the Middle East. 

Justice said the pair began performing together because 
of his reverence for Glover, whom he introduced as, "a giant 
among men, an ambassador to the world." 

"From my point of view, I've long admired Danny Glover's 
civic sense," Justice said. "He has constantly given of himself 
in whatever community he has lived in." 

Bell said she also admired Glover's work. 

"I thought it was important to attend because Danny 
Glover has been a huge civic leader in his lifetime," Bell said. 
"It was also really cool to hear the speech Mr. Justice gave 
because I've studied Martin Luther King, but I had never 
heard that particular piece." 

The speech Justice recited was the last full speech King 
gave before his death, which Justice said lent extra importance 
to it. 

"He was not killed for being a civil rights leader," Justice 
said. "He was killed for the speech he made tonight. We should 
talk about his life, but we should also talk about the reasons 
he died." 

Bell said she felt UPC invested in a quality project. 

"I totally appreciated the experience," Bell said. "I think 
K- State did a really good job and should continue to have 
events like this."

A head start 
to exercise 

by Lindsay Porter 

TS were still sleeping, more than 
200 students and community members woke their muscles up 
with a trip to the Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex. 

The Rec Center opened every weekday at 6 a.m. Students 
used the aerobic machines, lifted weights and attended 
exercise classes. 

Tracy Edwards, senior in elementary education and Step 
and Tone instructor, woke up at 5:30 a.m. to arrive at the 
exercise room by 6:15 a.m. to wipe off the floor, set up the 
room and select music for her class at 6:30 a.m.. 

"I teach all morning classes," Edwards said. "I get up and 
exercise because exercise makes you ready for the day." 

Edwards said she was a morning person as were most of 
the regulars in her step classes. 

"People in my classes are really enthusiastic," she said. 
"They are not dragging in. We have a lot of fun for that early 
in the morning." 

Jennifer Dalsem, Manhattan resident, attended Edwards' 
step classes when she visited the Rec Center. Dalsem, who 
worked in Topeka, said she preferred morning exercise 
because it allowed her to spend the evenings at home with 
her husband. 

"It's better if I go first thing in the morning and get it 
done," she said. "It's less busy — the nights tend to be crowded 
— and then I'm done for the day. I'm not necessarily a morning 
person. It motivates me to get up an hour earlier." 

Derek Walters, associate director of recreational services, 
said more than 1,800 students used the Rec Center daily. 

Erica Sisson, junior in fisheries and wildlife biology, and 
roommate Chasty Champlin, sophomore in animal sciences 
and industry, also used equipment in the Rec Center a couple 
of times a week at 6 a.m. 

"My roommate is a morning person, she makes me go," 
Sisson said. "If I can't make it in the morning, then I go later. 
(Going early) gets you ready — you have more time to get 
ready and are more awake for the first class."

are organic material," 
she said. "Even if no one

pages would get brittle.

on the fifth floor of Hale Library, 
in a restricted area, a room housed a water purification system, 
a fume hood and damaged books. 

Robyn Feldkamp, senior in apparel marketing and design, 
cautiously hovered over the spine of a book to cut a replace- 
ment to fit. Feldkamp and Sisa Haritatos, junior in elementary 
education, were the only student workers at the Book Preserva- 
tion Unit of Hale Library. 

Marty Hartford worked part-time in circulation and 
supervised the preservation unit. 

When Hale was revamped in 1997, the preservation lab 
received equipment to sustain a 
conservation team, but Hale did 
not employ a conservation team. 

Hartford said the difference 
between conservation and preser- 
vation was the types of repairs. 

"They are essentially the same 
thing," Hartford said. "There are 
different levels of treatment. Book 
repair is simple. Conservation 
involves completely re -casing the 
book. We don't do that here." 

Feldkamp and Haritatos con- 
centrated on repairing damaged books. Common repairs 
included reinforcing the spine, replacing lost or missing pages 
and providing acid-free boxes for safekeeping. 

Hartford said of the 1.5 million books in circulation, the 
preservation unit repaired more than 3,000 in 2002. 

Hartford said, at some libraries, when a book reached a 
deteriorated state it would be thrown out, but that was not 
the case at Hale. 

"Academic libraries don't get rid of anything," she said. 
"It might have value to someone." 

The preservation team aimed to sustain a full-time lab, 
if not a conservator, within five years. 

"It's important," Hartford said. "We are always going to 
have books and focus attention on the present collection of 
books and other resources. It's amazing what's available."

Union food court becomes more

Odyssey Cafe 

bv Jacob Walker 

on the grill as the scent 
of meat mingled with onions and green peppers. With a flip 
of his spatula, Tony Belardo, tossed the bread onto a plate and 
piled on the rest of the ingredients. 

With no frying or grease, The Greek Odyssey Cafe, located 
in the K- State Student Union, provided a healthier alternative 
to fast food restaurants in the food court, Belardo said. 

While there were a few customer favorites, the Odyssey 
offered a large variety of choices. 

"We just have so many different kinds of Greek food that 
we have to keep replacing the menu," Belardo said. "They're 
all good, and this way there is a bit more variety, not just the 
same stuff all the time." 

The Odyssey added variety, not only to its menu, but to 
the entire food court. 

"They have good stuff, if you like Greek food," Kathryn 
Van Keuren, junior in secondary education, said. "It's very 
different from a pizza or hamburger." 

Van Keuren said she thought the way food was prepared 
made a difference in how healthy it was. 

"It's not fried," she said. "It doesn't really feel like it is 
even fast food." 

Before the Odyssey sprang into existence, a cooking demo 
station occupied the space where different kinds of foods were 
served on a weekly basis. One of the rotations served Greek 
food, inspiring the creation of the Odyssey. 

"The Greek food was by far the most popular of the 
menus," Eric Braun, director of dining services, said. "We 
contacted a Greek food managing company, Kronos Products, 
and they helped us set up the Greek Odyssey." 

Kronos Products, a Chicago based company, provided 
the Union with supplies needed to prepare a wide array of 
entrees. 

"The Kronos family is Greek, so we know the food we get 
is authentic," Braun said. "It really adds to the multi- cultural 
atmosphere we are trying to have in the Union."

Volunteers 
raise money 

by Jaci Boydston 

AFTER 24 YEARS of soliciting money from alumni, the 
KSU Foundation Telefund was expected to be stronger than 
ever, Gordon Dowell, director of annual giving, said. 

"This is an awesome program," Dowell said. "Telefund 
has built a huge reputation." 

The month-long event ran Jan. 21-Feb. 24. Each 
weeknight, student volunteers called alumni from their 
colleges and departments to solicit donations. 

"We allow people to direct money back to their college," 
Dowell said. "That provides scholarships and other sorts of 
dollars." 

Dowell said K- State ranked first in the Big 12 Conference 
and fourth nationally among schools receiving alumni 
support. 

"That's pretty cool, but it goes relatively unnoticed," 
Dowell said. "A lot of people join in and support." 

Although students might not have thought an evening of 
telemarketing sounded like fun, Amanda Knight, senior in 
modern languages, said she enjoyed it. 

"It's really energetic, maybe too energetic," Knight said. 
"You're just pulled into it." 

Music, prizes and an abundance of donated food 
contributed to Telefund 's atmosphere. 

Stephani Edington, sophomore in journalism and mass 
communications, said she won two T-shirts, several gift 
certificates and a thermal mug during her four-hour shift. 

"They gave away all sorts of prizes," Edington said. 
"Calling people and asking for money is not a fun thing to 
do, but they made it fun." 

Edington raised around $800 for the A.Q. Miller School 
of Journalism and Mass Communications, which was average 
for most volunteers, Dowell said. 

Telefund gave away more than $60,000 in prizes, to 
encourage student participation and reward excellence, 
Dowell said. Prizes included a 2003 Nissan Frontier and a 
$1,000 scholarship. 

However, Edington said there were more important 
reasons to volunteer than the opportunity to win prizes. 

"It was a good way to donate your time," Edington said. 
"Sometimes when you call people, they're really mean, but 
the ones who aren't make up for it."

A KISS Tip: 

Straight from the mouth... 

Place a straw in your mouth. Pinch 
your nose shut. Breathe only through 
the straw. 

This is how it feels to breathe with 
emphysema. Emphysema is just one of 
the risks increased by smoking. 



Lafene health program promotes 
non-smoking among students, 
personalizes patients' needs to 
look into deeper issues with 
smoking risks 

by Natalie Gervais 

ENCOURAGING A SMOKE-FREE ENVIRONMENT 
and healthy lifestyle, K- Staters Inspired to Stop Smoking 
was revamped in December. 

"Smoking is becoming one of the leading health problems," 
Carol Kennedy, director of Health Education and Promotions, 
said. "The highest success programs for smoking cessation 
address psychological issues and physical addictions." 

KISS applied those ideals to its four-week program. 
Kennedy said the free, personalized program was specific to 
students' needs. 

"We take a look at the mental aspects of the problem, 
which is why the program for the American Cancer Society 
was so successful," Kennedy said. "We address concerns about 
weight gain and other fears the student may have." 

To determine where the core addiction came from, students 
answered a variety of questions. After a score was calculated, 
the results determined the next step toward quitting smoking. 
Stress balls, chewing gum and a community Listserv offering 
suggestions and advice comprised techniques used to calm 
addiction. 

"I've tried to quit a couple of times before," Ryan Epstein, 
junior in management information systems, said, "but I'll be 
at a party or bar and start up again. I plan to quit cold-turkey 
when I graduate." 

The number of current K-State students predicted to 
die of tobacco -related illness was 2,404, based on fall 2002 
enrollment numbers. 

"I think our latest slogan, 2,404, says it all," said Joshua 
Umbehr, senior in nutrition science and creator of the KISS 
acronym. "It stands for the number of students currently 
enrolled who will statistically die from smoking. We felt that 
was an outrageous number and something had to be done."

Lab tests virus 
in horses 

by Jennifer Newberry and Michelle Wilmes 

OF THE 105 COUNTIES in Kansas, 103 reported having 
positive results of the West Nile Virus, according to the 
K- State Research and Extension Web site. 

Detecting 793 cases in horses, K-State Veterinary 
Diagnostic Laboratory, located in Mosier Hall, provided 
testing sites for the virus. 

Bonnie Rush, professor of clinical studies, said she advised 
the Kansas Legislature in February 2002 that the disease would 
arrive in Kansas by summer. 

Sanjay Kapil, associate professor of diagnostic medicine 
and pathobiology, said K- State was first in Kansas to diagnose 
any positive results of the disease. The Centers for Disease 
Control helped set up the testing site and sent supplies. 

"The testing process is like a blind study; but out of the 
cases we sent to the CDC, we matched them with 100 percent 
accuracy," Kapil said. "We had good luck and encountered no 
setbacks. It was a perfect setup." 

Kapil said the national turn -around rate, when dealing 
with testing the virus, was three -to -four weeks. At K- State, 
it took a maximum of two days. They tested one day and got 
the results the next day. 

"We began working on the virus several months before it 
even arrived in Kansas," Kapil said. "With its low population 
density and the types of mosquitoes that exist here, we 
predicted that Kansas would have more West Nile cases in 
horses than in any other type of animal — we were right." 

K- State detected the first case of the virus Aug. 8, and the 
first human cases were confirmed Oct. 10. Twenty- two human 
cases were reported before the end of the summer. 

Joe Anderson and Heather Wisdom, research assistants of 
diagnostic medicine and pathobiology, tested for the virus. 

"I work with reading the results," Wisdom said. "Since 
the summer, testing has severely decreased since there are no 
mosquitoes right now." 

The testing affected revenues with each costing $ 10. About 
2,000 tests were run in three months. 

"We're the only lab in Kansas to run them," she said. 
"Occasionally we would send them to a place in Iowa." 

As of January, those involved with the testing were 
attempting to expand the test. 

"We'd like to maybe test other animals as well, besides 
horses," Wisdom said, "especially birds."

College life challenges 
eating habits, ability to 
eat healthy while 
balancing schedules 

by Lindsey Jones 

NEW STUDENTS were faced with a variety 
of eating options after coming to K- State. Sheryl 
Powell, director of Kramer Dining Center, said 
sometimes those options blurred the line 
between nourishment and gluttony. 

"I think they're overwhelmed by all the 
choices," Powell said. "They have to learn healthy 
lifestyles." 

Fending for themselves in what Powell called 
a toxic environment, some students gained 
weight after making the transition to college. 

"Part of this whole Freshman 15 thing has to 
do with options and choices," Powell said. "You 
have to make good choices." 

She said the dining centers strove for variety, 
which sometimes meant high-fat, high-sugar foods. 

"We can't not offer those," Powell said. "It's 
an issue of quantity and how often." 

Powell said students needed to look within 
to change the way they eat. 

"I'm convinced habit is what it's all about," 
she said. "You just have to change your thinking. 
Changing your habits is going to have some really 
positive results, but people don't want to hear 
that." 

Diana Schalles, a nutritionist at Lafene 
Health Center, said students also needed to 
change their impression of dieting. 

"I like healthy and balanced eating as 
I 



opposed to diet," Schalles said. "lust doing 
some pre-planning helps you so that you're not 
relying on those large portion sizes and eating 
when you're famished." 

The effects of overeating on health are 
staggering, Powell said. Increased instances of 
obesity, diabetes and even cancer are associated 
with an unhealthy diet. 

Another damaging consequence on the body 
was the toll due to on -again, off- again dieting, 
which produced frustration and worn -down 
bodies, Powell said. 

Schalles said getting help and obtaining 
correct nutritional information were two major 
tools to prevent overeating. 

Often social trends went against healthy 
habits, creating problems for students who were 
trying to make healthy decisions. 

"I wish we as a society could eat less," Whitney 
Mordica, junior in animal sciences and industry, 
said. "We need to take smaller portions and eat less 
often. We continue to increase portions and this 
obesity becomes a larger and larger problem." 

It seemed the primary reason behind the 
campus' increasing serving sizes was value, 
Powell and Schalles agreed. 

"They are getting a dollar value," Powell said, 
"but I really question whether they're getting a 
health value."

exhibit at Hale Library showcases book history, current issues 

by Matt Gorney 




IN A DARK LAB, a genius, dismissed by his colleagues, 
bestowed life on his creation, not knowing the life -altering 
consequences it would have. "Frankenstein," the novel, 
chronicled the scientist and his horrifying experience with 
the creation. This fall, an exhibit at Hale Library brought that 
experience to campus. 

Mary Shelley used her book, "Frankenstein", to pose 
questions about science and ethics. The questions Shelley 
asked continued to be relevant. 

"I think about the responsibility," said Mary Siegle, 
senior administrative assistant in the Department of English. 
"(Victor Frankenstein) refused to accept responsibility for 
his own creation." 

Siegle said instead of readable material, she thought there 
would be more three-dimensional objects in the exhibit 
which was on display Oct. 3 to Nov. 15., but the timing of 
the exhibit could not have been better. 

"It's kind of cool that we happened to have it over 
Halloween time when it drew more attention," Siegle said. 
"There's also psychological things it touches in us." 

The exhibit visited 80 libraries across the country. K- State 
was one of the first stops on the tour scheduled through 2005. 
Roger Adams, rare books librarian, said Hale planned to have 
more exhibits, including one about Abraham Lincoln and 
another featuring Konza Prairie Natural Research Area. 

"This is part of the strategic plan to enhance the image of 
the library," Adams said. "There are four copies of the exhibit 
traveling and we were one of the first four." 

Tessa Whitaker, junior in elementary education, said the 
exhibit was informative and had enhancing photos. She said 
the best part was the section on the author. 

"I really liked it," Whitaker said. "It had a lot of 
information that I didn't know about her." 

Interest in the book had also risen since the exhibit's 
opening, Adams said. 

"I know it's gotten a lot of people interested in reading 
the book," he said. "We bought several paperback copies and 
they've constantly been checked out."

Barge accident kills 12,

[ crashed into a concrete pilling that 
supported an Interstate 40 bridge southeast of Tulsa, Okla. A 
600 -foot-long section of the 1,988-foot-long bridge collapsed, 
sending more than nine cars and trucks into the Arkansas 
River, May 26. 

May 27, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in Tulsa closed 
dams to lower the speed of river flow to aid divers searching 
for more victims. 

Authorities said more than 12 people were killed. 

The bridge, built in 1967, was last inspected in 2001. 

1-40 was a major east-west highway. On average, the bridge 
carried 20,000 vehicles daily and one or two barges passed 
under it each day, Oklahoma Gov. Frank Keating said. 

The Oklahoma Department of Transportation asked 
travelers to avoid driving in eastern Oklahoma or to use 
alternate routes — State Highway 9 or U.S. 64. 

Officials said the bridge repairs could take six months 
to one year.

Soil research 

Consortium benefits from grant 

by Lindsay Porter 

K- STATE RECEIVED a check for $15 million, the largest 
grant in university history at Rannells Ranch, April 28. 

Provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and 
authorized by Kansas Sen. Pat Roberts, the grant nearly 
doubled the amount of the second-largest grant the university 
has received. 

The money benefited K- State and the Consortium for 
Agricultural Soil Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases, and was 
used for research and outreach to determine how agricultural 
soils could help reduce the amount of carbon dioxide in the 
air. 

CASMGS comprised 10 research institutions and 
worked with research groups within the U.S. Department 
of Agriculture. K- State was the lead institution in the 
consortium. 

The grant was awarded over three years, but Charles Rice, 
head of K- State's research team, said he hoped funding would 
continue for the next five or six years. 

Roberts discussed soil carbon sequestration, which 
reduced build-up of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere while 
improving soil by conserving carbon in the soil. 

Rice said soil carbon-sequestration research was 
important because carbon dioxide is one of the gases in the 
atmosphere causing global warming. 

The research of the consortium helped determine soil 
management practices that conserved more carbon in the 
soil, so it won't escape to the atmosphere, Rice said. 

Besides decreasing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, 
carbon sequestration also caused increased soil fertility and 
quality and reductions in erosion.

City alters traffic flow 

by Linclsey Thorpe and Jennifer Rezac 

BEGINNING JULY 11, Moro and Laramie streets limited 
traffic to one-way in the block between 11th Street and 
Manhattan Avenue. The traffic shifted east-bound on Moro 
Street from Manhattan Avenue to 1 1th Street, and west-bound 
on Laramie Street in the same block. 

Cheryl Sieben, Aggieville Business Association director, 
said the purpose of the change was to create more parking. 
One-way traffic allowed diagonal parking on the north side 
of Moro Street, with parallel parking on the south side. 

Most Aggieville merchants were happy with the decision, 
Sieben said. 

"Traffic will probably run smoother once people get used 
to it," Jerry Petty, Public Works director, said. "The streets 
will be safer for pedestrians."

New funding allows protection against threat of agroterrorism 



by Lindsay Porter and Lindsey Thorpe 

received $1.67 million from the U.S. Department 
of Agriculture, July 11, to bolster food and agricultural 
homeland security protections. Of the state's allotment, 
K- State received $900,000 for a rapid detection network 
focused on plant diseases. 

"This reinforces that we have valuable expertise in areas 
useful to solve problems," said Jerry Jaax, associate vice 
provost of research compliance. 

Kansas U.S. Sen. Pat Roberts said the funds represented 
a significant advancement in helping protect the foundation 
of the economy from an agroterrorism attack. 

K- State was designated as one of two large detection 
centers in the Midwest Agricultural Belt. 

Robert Zeigler, professor of plant pathology, said the 
network developed in collaboration with other states planning 
defense and prevention of agricultural terrorism. 

He said K- State was chosen to lead the Midwest network 
because of its strong faculty and research in the agricultural 
community. 



"We have a highly regarded department of plant pathology 
instructors," Zeigler said. "Our diagnostics capabilities are 
recognized around the country as competent." 

Zeigler said basic research needed to be generated so 
intervention strategies could be developed and tested. 

"What the facility will do is enable us to imagine what 
kind of events could happen, then how we would respond 
and test, in a real life situation, how effective the responses 
are," he said. "There will be an educational component to 
it because there will be a lot of original research conducted 
in the facility. That would be a tremendous opportunity for 
hands-on experience in research." 

K- State's College of Agriculture also provided the first 
Web -based distance diagnostic capacity. 

The National Agricultural Biosecurity Center, in 
Manhattan, studied how animal and plant diseases entered the 
country, sponsored exercises designed to hone terror-fighting 
skills and set up a carcass disposal system if livestock were 
targeted. K- State received $3 million to establish the center.

Station fights for air, 
football broadcasts

ON AUG. 22, a district court decision allowed WIBW- AM

At the end of 2001, the station's contract expired. However, 
when the university gave the rights to Mid-America Ag 
Network, WIBW went to court and cited a previous decision, 
which allowed it to keep the rights to broadcast the games. 

After the 2002 court decision, Tim Weiser, K- State athletic 
director, said he was disappointed but not surprised at the 
decision. He also said K- State would keep fighting and would 
continue to appeal. 

Mid- America's contract paid $1.2 million per year. With 
the loss of the case, the budget had to be reworked to $300,000. 
Weiser said it was not easy for fans to understand, but the 
issues were important and worth fighting for.

Billing, tax errors toll city 



Mistakes total $1 million for budget 



by Nabil Shaheen 

TWO ERRORS in water meter readings and an appraisal 
error resulted in Manhattan being nearly $1 million over 
budget. 

In July, city officials realized they had been incorrectly 
reading water meters at Colbert Hills Golf Course for three 
years, under billing the golf course $352,578. K- State originally 
placed a six- dial meter at Colbert Hills. Water readers from 
the city were misinformed that it was to be read as a five - dial 
meter. While the city took blame, Colbert Hills directors said 
the facility realized the error and would reimburse the city 
upon agreement of final finances and money lost. 

One month later, in August, the Riley County Appraiser's 
office stated that an employee reported the value of a $59,500 
home on Pomeroy Street as $200,059,000. This resulted 
in departments having to rework budgets to include the 



corrected, assessed value of Riley County. City management 
and commissioners decided to use approximately $750,000, 
originally scheduled for use in transportation and building 
renovation projects, to make up for the loss. About 28 
programs and departments received cuts as a result of the 
overhaul, including the Riley County Police Department, 
which took the largest cut — $85,700. 

In September, the city discovered another water meter 
error, this time on campus. Because of a malfunctioning 
outdoor meter, Van Zile Dining Hall was undercharged 
almost $ 15,000. A monthly water bill should have run between 
$600-$700. For two years, Van Zile was being charged $14.94 
a month, until the problem was noticed. 

Sept. 25, Manhattan announced internal restructuring 
amongst its utility billing and meter reading operations.

by Natalie Gervais 

THE K-STATE SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT 
CENTER helped establish northcentral Kansas businesses. 
The business center shut down, Dec. 31, after the College of 
Business Administration withdrew its 19 -year support. 

Yar Ebadi, dean of the College of Business Administration, 
said the college needed to cut funds to the center because of 
drastic budget cuts. 

The business center looked to other organizations for 
funds, but was already struggling with expenses before the 
decision. Fred Rice, director of the business center, said they 
did not have enough funds to travel to other counties. Business 
owners had to travel to Manhattan to share their struggles. 

Over the years, the center helped 36,300 people in 44 
counties. The business center worked with anyone who 
wanted to start a business or needed guidance. Services were 
free and confidential. After closing, counseling and training 
programs continued under the direction of Barta Stevenson, 
assistant director of the business center.

lation foam seen bouncing off the 
left wing of the shuttle before lift- 
off somehow damaged the heat resistant ceramic tiles on the 
wing. 

The Columbia disaster occurred four days after the 17th 
anniversary of the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger, 
Jan. 28, 1986. 

Subsequent space shuttle launches were delayed until the 
cause of Columbia's break-up was determined, but President 
George W. Bush assured the nation the space program would 
continue. The delays affected the crew of the international 
space station, which was scheduled to return to Earth 
March 1. NASA said the crew had enough supplies to last 
through the end of June.

Senate vice chair 
replaced mid-term 

by Jennifer Newberry 

AFTER FORMER VICE CHAIR VICKI CONNER 
RESIGNED, Student Senate elected a replacement for the 
position, Jan. 24. After a 30 - 8 - 8 vote, MaryElizabeth Kasper, 
senior in secondary education, was sworn in as vice chair. 

Kasper's qualifications helped her secure the position. She 
previously served as a senator and was the only candidate to 
have formal leadership in the Senate. 

War on terror 

Protesters, supporters rally 

by Lindsey Thorpe 

ADDRESSING THE NATION and the world March 17, 
President Bush gave Saddam Hussein and his sons 48 hours 
to leave Iraq, or face war. 

Bush said risks of inaction would be far greater in the 
future if not stopped. Peaceful efforts of diplomacy had failed, 
he said, and the security of the world required disarming 
Hussein at the present time, instead of waiting for the removal 
of weapons of mass destruction. 

According to The New York Times, roughly 90 minutes 
after the ultimatum expired, American forces fired the first 
shots of the campaign to remove Hussein by force. 

After the war began, demonstrators, both for and against 
the war, organized protests across the nation. Though many 
protests were peaceful, some required intervention, like one 
protest in San Francisco. Hay bales were set on fire in the streets 
around the Transamerica Building and police -car windows 
all over town were smashed. Police made 1,350 arrests — the 
highest one -day total in the history of the city. 



Student TV show airs

THE FIRST EPISODE of "Manhattan Matters" was 
filmed, Feb. 28, in Dole Hall. Run entirely by students, the 
TV show had been in the planning stages for several months 
before the story assignments were given in February, Bambi 
Landholm, executive producer, said. 

Landholm said the show was filmed in one straight run, 
and would likely be left unedited. Other production members 
believed that current mistakes would be worked out in later 
episodes, Benjamin Hodge, co - anchor and senior in electrical 
engineering, said.

they graduate they'll have 
to sit in an office and they 
won't be able to dance as 
much," said Joyce Yager- 
line, associate professor of 
dance. — Photo by

Yagerline said she didn't expect the dancers in her ballet 
classes to become professionals because K- State is a liberal 
arts university with a broad-based curriculum. 

"Few want to be (professionals) and probably few can," 
she said. "What I'm expecting them to get out of this class 
is an enjoyment and a love for dancing. I also want them to 
develop discipline and perseverance, to work hard, enjoy the 
art form, learn about their bodies and what their bodies can 
do." 

Among her different level classes, dance majors made 
up only a part of the participants. Some people outside the 
dance program took it as a stress reliever, and others because 
they had been doing it since they were young and did not 
want to quit. 

"I love to dance," Jenny Ludes, sophomore in business 
administration, said. "I have been doing it since I was 4. It's 
my passion. In college it isn't a typical class. It's a release 
going to dance and being able to dance and leave with no 
homework." 

In the classroom, Yagerline said she was a tough teacher. 

"I am passionate about ballet," Yagerline said. "I am a 
hard teacher - very strict - because I know what it's like to 
be in the real world dancing." 

Yagerline has been dancing for 36 years, 13 profession- 
ally. 

"We are very fortunate to have Joyce," Abby Williamson, 
sophomore in theater, said. "She's danced for years, and is 
amazing. She gives us individual attention and tells you what 
you need to correct." 

As the music played and the girls worked under the 
watchful eyes of Yagerline, she corrected their movements 
and helped them understand what they were doing wrong. 

"Ballet looks easy, but it's harder than it looks. 

"You have to work at it to make it look easy," Yagerline 
said. "It can also be compared to meditation, because you are 
singularly focused on one thing. Nothing else matters and 
nothing else exists in that moment. It's kind of like you're a 
channel between God or the universe and the earth."

body, mind connect 

he downward dog, corpse, warrior and mountain — these 
postures constituted a small branch of the numerous 
limbs of yoga. 

Yoga, a Hindu philosophy teaching control of the body 
and mind to achieve spiritual insight and tranquility, proved 
to be a life saver for stressed -out students. 

"Yoga means right relationship," Erika Jensen, graduate 
student in entomology, said. "Having the right relationship 
internally between the body, mind and spirit, as well as 
externally with other people." 

Students said yoga not only provided mental and spiritual 
insight, but gave physical benefits as well. 

"Yoga is a practical way to lead a happy and stress-free 
life," Ana Franklin, UFM instructor, said. "I've had people 
say that because of yoga, they have less headaches, feel more 
rested, less stressed, it's easier to focus and it's easier to not 
be distracted." 

Franklin said her students experienced the benefits of 
yoga, and it helped them get in touch with their feelings and 
the world around them. 

"Yoga calms me," Monica Clement, geology instructor, 
said. "Practice has become a crucial part of who I am." 

Though some were wary of yoga because of contorted 
positions, Franklin said it was really for the mind. The physical 
aspects and benefits were a benefit of practice as a whole. 

"Many people have the misconception that yoga is for the 
body," Franklin said. "But in fact, the use of the body in yoga is 
only for focusing the mind and understanding the self better. 
It's not for the purpose of having a Jane Fonda figure. If all you 
want is a nice body, you should go do aerobics." 

Having a good experience with yoga could depend on the 
teacher you follow, Franklin said. She said students should 
find out who the teacher studied with. 

Students dedicated to yoga found regular practice helped 
center and ground them in a world of sensational stimuli. 

"We get drawn outside of ourselves by our senses. We 
forget that there's something here, inside," Franklin said. 
"When someone reintroduces us to our inner lives, our 
true center, the joy in our hearts towers over all those other 
distractions, so much so that we learn to love it and want to go 
back to it every day. That's what yoga's about — reconnecting 
and reintegrating with your true self." 




THREE STUDENTS in Ana 
Franklin's yoga class, 
practice breathing. "If you 
come to class once or twice 
a week, you'll feel some 
benefits, but nothing to 
the extent that people who 
practice on a regular basis 
feel," Franklin said. "The 
point of yoga is to practice."

personality fused 

into style of artwork 

Figure drawing, oil painting, ceramics and sculpture 
classes taught art majors methods of creating visual 
masterpieces. 

During their first two years in the fine arts program, 
students enrolled in survey courses, 2-D and 3-D design 
courses and drawing. 

Robin Mabie, senior in fine arts, said those courses were 
structured to compare different techniques. 

"Beginning level classes — they're pre -classes before you 
can declare your emphasis — need to be structured to move 
further along in your art career," she said. 

Mabie enrolled in "Oil Painting" and "Drawing II" 
during fall semester while Allison Becker, junior in fine arts, 
studied "Figure Drawing." 

Though Becker had little time to draw for fun, she said 
figure drawing was key in perfecting her skills. 

"Figure drawing is the basis for all art," Becker said. "It's 
good to get a good hold on that before anything else." 

Putting her heart into her art, Becker said her personality 
showed in her work. 

"Allison's artwork gives you a window into a whole other 
side of her," Tyler Dirks, junior in fine arts, said. "I guess you 
could say she's reserved, but her art has a more playful and 
creative energy." 

Though she appreciated professional artists, Becker 
said she believed her biggest inspiration came from other 
students. 

"Critiquing is a huge part of class," Becker said. "It's 
important to be able to pick out good and bad elements of 
other students' work and apply them to yours."

Budget cut, tuition rises 



by Michelle Wilmes 



Despite tuition rise, 
student numbers grow 



DESPITE INCREASED TUITION, enrollment rose to an all-time 
university high — 22,762 students. 

"I expected there to be a decrease in numbers," Donald Foster, 
university registrar said. "Some students may not have returned because 
of the increase in tuition, but enrollment is at the highest it has ever been. 
We had almost 400 more students this year than we did last year." 

After the Kansas Legislature reduced the amount of money allocated 
to the university, the first step in budgeting was to increase tuition and 
assess fees to departments, Foster said. 

"As soon as we knew there was going to be a decrease in funding, 
we knew we had to compromise somehow," Foster said. "That's why we 
added the extra fees and increased the tuition. Other than salaries, the 
main field that the increase went toward was technology." 

To offset the tuition increase, Rachel Trowbridge, freshman in family 
studies and human services, said she worked 
harder to budget her money. 

"After I found out that the tuition was 
going to increase, I knew I needed to apply for 
additional scholarships," Trowbridge said. "By 
doing this, I received more scholarships and I was able to make up the 
difference." 

Although K- State experienced a 25.1 -percent increase in tuition 
— well above the 9.6 -percent national average — the tuition was still 
in the lower 38 percent nationally, annually paying less than $4,000 for 
tuition and fees. 

Tyler Breeden, senior in agricultural economics, said due to the 
budget cuts the income generated from increases in tuition was only 
maintaining the current levels of education, rather than improving 
them. 

"The decreased budget has limited short-term improvements for 
technology in the classroom and has also led to fewer class offerings," 
Breeden said. "However, the budget cuts reduced the number of faculty 
members and therefore class sizes went up and the number of times that 
classes were offered might have been limited. Having less faculty resulted 
in larger numbers of students per adviser, and students could potentially 
lose valuable time with a mentor. 

"Overall, Kansas State University is an outstanding institution and 
will continue to thrive despite these short-term setbacks."

peer tutors help others 



sking for help with classes may not have 
kbeen easy for students who were used to 
being independent studiers. 

Even for those students, the Academic Assis- 
tance Center offered free instruction in more 
than 100 subjects. 

Tutors were hired on the basis of at least a 
3.0 GPA and As or Bs in the subject they were 
helping with, said Adam Kujawa, tutoring 
center director and graduate student in business 
administration. 

Knowledge was not the only requirement 
for tutoring, said Eric Castaneda, senior in 
secondary education and modern languages. 

"You have to like teaching and working with 
people," he said. 

Kujawa said math and science were the 
subjects students most needed help with. 

Louis Novak, junior in journalism and mass 



communications, said his college algebra tutor, 
Castaneda, was helpful and made the material 
easier to understand. 

"Tutors break it down into a smaller 
setting," Novak said. "(Castaneda) has given me 
confidence to help get through it and has broken 
it down to help me understand it." 

Novak said that in small groups of five to 
seven, students got one -on -one help. 

The offices for the academic and tutoring 
centers and tutorial assistance were in Holten 
Hall. Tutors were matched on the basis of 
availability. 

Although tutoring hours were from 8 a.m. 
to 5 p.m. many tutors spent more time helping 
students, Castaneda said. 

"We do close at five o'clock," Castaneda said, 
"but I have no problem staying past five to help 
out, if the student is willing."

role reversal

Evaluations guide instructors' performance 

ROLES WERE REVERSED when students critiqued 
instructors for teaching effectiveness. Teacher evaluations 
were distributed during classes so students could judge their 
instructors' performances over the semester. 

"This entire process exists for not only students' benefits but 
also for the instructors'," said Renee Fonferko, administrative 
assistant for the A.Q. Miller School of Journalism and Mass 
Communications. "The instructor can gain helpful insight as 
to how to teach the class better the next time around." 

The anonymous student evaluations, called TEVALS, 
asked students 14 questions broken down into two categories 
— rating the instructor and rating themselves. Students were 
given the opportunity to write additional comments. 

"I really do read them," David Fallin, instructor in 
marketing, said. "I look at every one of them. Some comments 
are ridiculous; such as 'the tests are too hard,' but I have gotten 
some good ideas." 

IDEA, another teacher evaluation used in some classes, 
was more detailed and had more questions than the TEVAL 
forms. 

"If a faculty member needs something quick and easy, 
a TEVAL will give the department head a good idea of 
their teaching," said Victoria Clegg, director of the Center 
of Advancement for Teaching and Learning. "If a faculty 
member needs more specific information, IDEA is a better 
evaluation to use." 



ERICA ECKELMAN, fresh- 
man in business adminis- 
tration, fills out a teacher 
evaluation during her 
Environmental Geography 
Lab class. "Many students 
do not take TEVALS 
seriously, " said Renee

assistant for the A.Q. Miller 
School of Journalism and

In the real world 

by Kristen Day and Matt Gorney 

PREPARING FOR POST- COLLEGE LIFE required more 
than classes and professors. Internships helped students 
explore life after graduation and University Recognition, a 
program matching internships to students, provided a first 
step to getting the right experience. 

"University Recognition lets students combine academics 
and work experience while being a full-time student," Mary 
Ellen Barkley, Career and Employment Services coordinator, 
said. "It provides experience that is not readily available in 
course work." 

Megan Mayo, senior in human ecology and mass 
communications, said her internship at the Manhattan 
Convention and Visitors Bureau allowed her to 
work on a variety of projects. 

"I've worked there for two years," she said. "I 
learned so much about myself and gained skills 
that will be helpful in my professional career." 

Ashley Presley, leadership intern at the Manhattan 
Area Chamber of Commerce, said she would recommend 
internships to others, even if the internship wasn't related to 
career objectives. 

"Everything I've learned — organization and deadlines

ani mal care 

THE JOB 



by Lisa Solomon 



Research units provide employment opportunities 

OPPORTUNITIES FOR HANDS-ON RESEARCH and 
animal care were provided to students through six breeding 
units operated by the Department of Animal Sciences and 
Industry. 

The animal units were created as a research center for 
different types of livestock. 

Jack Riley, animal sciences and industry department 
head, said most of the units used students for part-time la- 
bor where students worked one-on-one with the animals. 

The breeding program constituted six units housing 
swine, sheep, poultry, horses, and beef and dairy cattle. Ani- 
mal sciences and industry professor John Shirley said most 
units arose in the late 1950s and early 1960s, with the excep- 
tion of the dairy unit, which was created in the late 1800s. 

Rachael Gager, a student worker for the sheep unit and 
graduate student in animal sciences and industry, had been 
working at the unit since her junior year. 

"I transferred from Colby Community College and 
needed a job," Gager said. "I raised sheep back home and 
was first offered a position painting at the unit." 

Gager attained the position of shepherdess in January 
2002, which required living at the facility. Her typical day 
started at 6:30 a.m. to feed and care for the sheep. After 
chores, Gager attended a full day of classes and returned 
home at the end of the day to complete chores once more. 

Gager said her favorite part of the job was having the op- 
portunity to work with the sheep and take care of the lambs. 
She oversaw three student employees with the help of animal 
sciences and industry professor Clifford Spaeth. 

Horse unit manager David McClure also used students 
for part-time labor. 

"It's a good experience for the students," McClure said. 
"It's kind of like a crash course in management, as our stu- 
dents always have to keep an eye on the horses." 

Duane Davis, animal sciences and industry professor, 
agreed student involvement was valued in all aspects of the 
operation. 

With a desire to work in Research and Extension, Gager 
said the skills she picked up helped her career path. 

"I have gained people skills from overseeing employees, 
as well as working with other sheep breeders and faculty 
members," Gager said. "I learn something new every day."

Konza's blooming Daisy 



by Lindsey Jones 



"DAISY! DAISY!" 

Thomas Van Slyke, site manager at Konza Prairie Research 
Natural Area, called out to the 18-month-old buffalo. 

Following a deep, rumbling grunt, a furry head poked 
around a tarped panel inside the bison corral. 

"She's friendly," Van Slyke said, "but sometimes she's a 
little too friendly. We don't relish having orphans because we 
don't want it to be a problem for safety. You want them to be 
naturally stand-offish." 

Daisy was orphaned shortly after birth. Van Slyke said 
survival for orphans in the wild was low. Even when Konza 
personnel cared for orphaned calves, the survival rate was 
only 50 percent. 

To care for Daisy, Van Slyke worked with K- State students 
and James Larkins, foreman for Konza. Along with general 
maintenance, the students helped with orphaned calves, 
tagging, weighing and sorting to sell. 

"The students help with everything," Van Slyke said. 
"They're very valuable to us." 

Alex Miller, senior in agronomy, 
said he helped care for Daisy when 
she was young. 

"I helped bottle feed her milk 
in the morning," Miller said, "and I fed her when she could 
eat feed."

"It's not to become more purebred," Larkins said. "It's for 
diversity. We don't want them to become too inbred."

Though they have only had to raise a few orphans at 
Konza, Van Slyke said orphans were a common occurrence, 
especially for first-time mothers. 

"Sometimes the mother will lose the calf," Van Slyke said. 
"Or if it's the first calf that she's had, she'll just abandon the 
calf. It's not unusual." 

Van Slyke said feeding a young animal tended to make 
them bond with humans, but most orphans adapted to the 
herd fairly easily. 

"What usually happens is that they assimilate into the herd 
as the herd comes and goes from the corral, which it does all 
the time," Van Slyke said. "There are individuals in and out 
daily, so they'll take off and go with the herd." 

Though Miller said he wasn't too fond of the bison 
initially, he had learned to appreciate them. 

"At first I didn't really care for them because I had been 
around cattle a lot," Miller said, "but I think they've got their 
place. They're pretty neat animals."

Gardens undergo renovations, offer place to learn, relax 



HIDDEN BETWEEN the bustle of people and traffic at 
K- State was a place of tranquility and beauty — the Kansas 
State University Gardens. 

Gregg Eyestone, associate director of the Gardens, said the 
project was important to the university and had potential to 
be one of the main attractions. 

"If you look at other universities with or without 
horticulture programs, they have or are establishing botanical 
gardens," Eyestone said. "To compete for students and faculty, 
it is a needed resource. Horticulture students study the plants 
for course work, where non-horticulture students visit the 
gardens for enjoyment." 

Scott McElwain, gardens director, said working in the 
gardens gave students training for greenhouse management, 
landscape design and horticulture science. 

"Students use the gardens for study - such as plant 
identification - and for hands-on training," McElwain said. 
"The Gardens are an outdoor laboratory." 

McElwain said students worked there throughout the 
school year and during breaks. Marie Noll, junior in animal 
sciences and industry and student worker at the Gardens, said 
the job fit her well. 

"I work there because it's really relaxing and convenient," 
Noll said. "It's right on campus, the hours are flexible and I 
like to work outdoors." 

Horticultural students, along with a full- and part-time 
staff and volunteers, maintained the gardens, Eyestone said. 
He said departments, including Landscape Architecture 
and Human Ecology, visited the gardens for educational 
purposes.

Some insects were pur- 
chased for as little as $5,

— cost as much as $300. 
"In terms of variety, by

here, we will have a better 
variety of insects at this 
insect zoo than most any 
place in the country," said

the Butterfly Conservatory 
and Insect Zoo. — Photo

THE NEWEST ZOO in Manhattan was in the top 10 
places to visit in the United States before it opened, accord- 
ing to USA Today. On Oct. 18, President Jon Wefald and rep- 
resentatives from the Department of Entomology dedicated 
the Insect Zoo as an addition to the Butterfly Conservatory 
and KSU Gardens. 

"We are incredibly pleased to be part of this prestigious list," 
said Ralph Charlton, director of the Butterfly Conservatory 
and Insect Zoo, "especially considering that the K- State Insect 
Zoo is the only one among the top 10 that is affiliated with a 
university, and is not a commercial venture." 

Sonny Ramaswamy, professor and head of the Department 
of Entomology, said the zoo had an estimated 100 species of 
insects in addition to pinned specimens of butterflies, moths, 
and beetles, and planned on adding more. 

"We have an amazing collection, one of the best anywhere," 
Ramaswamy said. "We breed them and they make babies, lots 
of babies and the babies are sold." 

In the zoo, visitors were greeted with a rainforest display 
showcasing different insects. Following the pat h through 
the building, people learned from posters and 
exhibits of various species of bugs. 

Another feature was a mock kitchen, which 
included live insects to give visitors an idea of 
what could be lurking in their kitchen. 

Finishing out the tour was a cave atmosphere complete 
with glowing scorpions and the collection of tarantulas that 
Ramaswamy said was the best in any insect zoo. 

"It's a big educational tool," Michelle Kaczmarek, graduate 
student in entomology, said. "We have so many different 
species, and just to learn about them is a great experience."

tough bugs 




uper bugs invaded K- State's entomology research. The 
writhing insects plagued agricultural crops and defied 
pesticides by becoming resistant to the toxins. 

Three types of pesticides exist — contact, stomach and 
airborne toxins. 

"Nerve poisons are in most insecticides," Sonny Ramas- 
wamy, head of entomology, said. "Be sure to read the back 
of the insecticide label to make sure it doesn't harm your 
plant." 

Ramaswamy said insects were placed in different classes 
depending on their resistance levels. Gerald Wilde, profes- 
sor of entomology, said there were more than 500 pesticide - 
resistant insects. 

"Insects have durability to insecticides," Wilde said. 
"When you spray, you select those individual genes. This is 
called selection process." 

Some insects, like cockroaches, formed a thicker exo- 
skeleton to escape the effects of insecticide. They developed 
resistance rapidly to several insecticides, Ramaswamy said. 

"Biochemical resistance modifies the nervous system 
component," he said. "It also modifies the metabolic com- 
ponent as well." 

While many studies involved insect resistance at K- State, 
one of the more popular studies was the Bacilus Thuringien- 
sis corn study. BT was a chemical toxin engineered into corn 
crops that killed the insects feeding on corn, Ramaswamy 
said. Thirty percent of the corn grown in Kansas in 2002 
was BT-Corn. 



BY ADDING ALCOHOL 
with insecticide to petrie 
dishes containing bugs, 
Gerald Wilde, professor in 
entomology, is able to tell 
which bugs are resistant 
to insecticides. "By testing 
a number of different con- 
centrations, we are able 
to find the concentration 
which will kill 50 percent 
of the bugs," Wilde said.

Cancer Research Center dedicated to founder 

TERRY JOHNSON, founder of the Basic Cancer Research 
Center, died of liver cancer Oct. 27, 22 years after he started 
the non-profit organization. 

The center, which was renamed the Terry C. Johnson 

Center for Basic Cancer Research after his death, moved 

into Chalmers Hall, a new facility, on Sept. 30. Prior to his 

passing, Johnson had said the addition would be 

significant for the center. 

"The cancer center is the successful entity 
that it is because of Terry Johnson," Janis 
Galitzer, administrative assistant at the center, 
said. "He was a good leader and a good friend." 
Chalmers Hall, named in honor of John 
Chalmers, former dean of the College of Arts and 
Sciences, provided laboratories for the research 
center in the 56,000-square-foot addition to 
Ackert Hall. 

Unlike other research centers, which involved 
graduate students, Galitzer said the center 
primarily worked with undergraduates. 

An award program gave $500 to each student and $500 
to the faculty member working with the student. Granting 
more than $250,000 in 21 years, the money was used to assist 
research. 

"Undergraduates work with a faculty mentor," Galitzer 
said. "We encourage conversation between people in different 
disciplines." 

Though the center focused on facilitating research 
awards, its mission included community outreach, enhancing 
education and the advancement of research. 

Cancer researcher Richard Baybutt, associate professor 
in human nutrition, studied rats to investigate the effects of 
cigarette smoking. 

"Students are involved in a number of ways," Baybutt said. 
"They take care of the animals and work on the analysis." 

Delores Takemoto, biochemistry professor, worked with 
undergraduate students for Takemoto's research which 
involved dietary components and colon cancer. 

"The cancer center has done a really good job with 
outreach onto campus," Takemoto said. "It introduces a 
large number of students to research."

MOOD5HIFTS 

Students use counseling, medication to help disorder 

by Jennifer Newberry 

THE OCT. 31 SNOW caused a mood change for Ashley 
Hall, freshman in open-option. A sufferer of seasonal 
depression, her mood fluctuated between sadness and 
happiness, depending on the amount of sunlight outside. 

Nearly 45 percent of students reported some form of 
depression, including seasonal depression and bipolar 
disorder. Of the 946 clients seen by University Counseling 
Services, 420 showed signs of depression. 

"About one -third get treatment for their symptoms," Jeana 
Magyar-Moe, psychology intern at Counseling Services, said. 
"We don't see everyone, because they're not coming in." 

Bipolar disorder affected nearly 2.3 million Americans. 
K- State's population reflected the national average of 0.81 
percent for those with bipolar disorder, Barbara Pearson, 
psychologist at Counseling Services, said. 

Bipolar was the third most common mood disorder 
nationally, according to Psychiatry24x7.com. Offset by mania, 
bipolar disorder swings from extremes of being excessively 
elated to being gloomy and hopeless. 

"In general, a person will have little motivation to get out 
of bed and go to class," Magyar-Moe said. "They get behind 
in their classes and don't feel very happy when it happens. It's 
a negative cycle." 

Depression and bipolar disorder affected students when 
it came to studying and paying attention in classes because 
both interfered with concentration. 

"When you're dealing with extreme emotions, it's hard to 
study," Hall said. "Your concentration gets depleted. It's hard 
to do anything for long periods of time." 

Treating bipolar and depression depended on the person's 
needs. Counseling Services used a variety of techniques, 
including biofeedback and bibliotherapy. 

"The biggest step is to come in and say what's going on," 
Magyar-Moe said. "We help them to understand what's 
happening to them. Those that need medication, we refer to 
a psychiatrist." 

Understanding limitations helped recovery, Hall said. 

"People can't always deal with this like I do," she said. "I 
don't like to take medication, so I don't. If you don't have a 
very good understanding of your limitations then you need to 
take things slowly and be on medication or in therapy."

a long f strange trip 



visa mishap sends professor home 



C/3 

IS 



After budget cuts forced his three-year stint at the 
University of Washington to end, Stephen Glaister, 
assistant professor of philosophy, came east. 

As the native New Zealander arrived in Manhattan in early 
August, he realized the paperwork for his soon-to-be-expired 
work visa had not yet been processed. 

"He arrived and we had a conversation and he realized 
that we had not done something on time and he told us," 
James Hamilton, head of the Department of Philosophy, said. 
"We tried to figure out any way we could to not have to send 
him home. Within a day or two, we realized that we had no 
alternative. 

"The only way that was safe for him and for us so that both 
he and we were clear and clean and innocent in the eyes of the 
INS was for him to go home and reapply for entry." 

So K- State paid for his flight back to Auckland, New 
Zealand and Glaister stayed with his family for about five 
weeks with no salary; living off his credit cards. 

During those five weeks, Hamilton and Marcelo Sabates, 
associate professor of philosophy, took over the two sections 
of Glaister's Introduction to Philosophy class. 

"It's difficult when you have to take over a class after that," 
Glaister said. "I had to decide whether to follow on from what 
they were teaching, which was somewhat different from what I 



would have taught had I been here. It was a difficult situation, 
there are some people (students) who really wish the previous 
guy would keep going because they liked them, some people 
were the other way, too. It was just an unfortunate situation 
in general." 

Hamilton said something needed to be done, especially 
with so much help offered to international students, at the 
International Student Center, but none offered to faculty. 

"Although we haven't made this kind of goof before, it's not 
impossible that it would happen again," Hamilton said. "It's 
not something that we do routinely. It's amazing. We have a 
large number of international faculty at a research university 
and no central office for helping them out." 

After 12 years in the United States, Glaister said he knew 
things were not that bad, and, in fact, could have been a lot 
worse. 

"No one did anything really wrong, things were just 
screwed up," Glaister said. "The law is the law and we follow 
it and accept all consequences of that. 

"If I had been from any country that was a little bit 
suspicious, then I might not have been able to make it back. I 
would have been in a sorry state if I had been from a place that 
had suspicions about it, and you really feel for people. Those 
are the people who have the interesting stories."

Professor preaches history 



Zeal for subject 
ignites Sanders 



as much as Charles 
Sanders did. 

"I've got to have the best job in the world," Sanders, 
assistant professor of history, said. "I'm teaching 19th-century 
American history, arguably the best subject in the world, to 
the best students in the world — and I'm doing it at a place 
like Kansas State University. 

"I don't want President Wefald to hear this, but it's the 
kind of thing you'd do for free." 

Sanders' love for his job was evident in his high-powered 
teaching style, which students described as energetic, 
charismatic and animated. 

"He keeps people 
on the edge of their 
seats," Matthew Swift, 
freshman in political 
science, said. "For 
those who have trouble 
staying awake, I think he makes it very hard for them to stay 
uninterested." 

Sanders said part of his energetic classroom style could 
be attributed to his Southern upbringing and passion for 
stories. 

"We (Southerners) are great storytellers," Sanders said. 
"We relay our history often in narrative form or in songs or 
poetry." 

Matthew Lower, sophomore in park management and 
conservation, said Sanders' teaching style helped him. 

"Some professors will lecture and so forth, but they're just 
regurgitating information," Lower said. "He enjoys making 
the class fun and interesting, as well as informative. He's a 
higher- caliber teacher." 

Sanders agreed teaching involved more than reciting 
facts. 



byjaci Boydston 

"A lot of history teaching is art," Sanders said. "You've 
got to have the facts, but when I talk about history with the 
blood in it, what I mean is, I want history where they get the 
feel as well as the facts." 

Most students Sanders taught named history as one of 
their least favorite subjects, which he attributed to boring 
presentation. 

"They've all heard (the material)," Sanders said. "They've 
read it in a thousand books, and they're sick to death of it. 
That's the reason they don't raise their hands and say, 'oh, I 
love history' In fact, they do love it, they just don't know it 
yet." 

Other factors caused students to dislike history, as well. 

"One of the reasons that history isn't fun, isn't interesting, 
is because we come into it on the other side," Sanders said. 
"We know what happens. Well, if you start on this end, and 
you walk through it one step at a time, seeing it as they saw 
it, then it becomes very relevant. There are a lot of twists and 
turns." 

Sanders' teaching approach involved bringing in historical 
artifacts and teaching events from different points of view. 
Sanders spent one class period teaching the American 
Revolution from a British point of view. 

"We always read history from an American point of 
view," Sanders said. "Not this time. The art of teaching is, 
I'm always looking for the hook. The hook here is: you're 
going to be a British soldier. It's a part of our history that 
needs to be told." 

Sanders said history should be important to everyone 
because it was the story of all Americans. 

"Look at who we Americans are now, the challenges that we 
still have here," Sanders said. "It's about all of us. It's not a story 
for Montana as opposed to Mississippi. It's about Montana, 
and it's about Mississippi, and it's about all of us."

NEW JOB 

Students coach youth to gain experience 

TAKING TRAINING PRINCIPLES and coaching 
philosophies to the court, field or mat, students in Mary Lou 
Morgan's coaching practicum applied classroom knowledge 
to real-life coaching experiences. 

"I want them to get a realistic view of what coaching 
entails," Morgan said. "Most are athletes who want to go into 
coaching because they've loved playing. The practicum helps 
them make the transition from being an athlete to a coach." 

Partnering with Manhattan High School and Manhattan 
Parks and Recreation, the Department of 
Secondary Education arranged opportunities 
for students to coach and assist in a variety of 
sports. 

"It's set up so we can get the kids out working 
with youth," Morgan said. "Those who work 
directly with the high school in town gain an 
awful lot from it." 

Ronald James, senior inelementary education, 
coached wrestling for the first time at Manhattan 
High School. He said his experiences wrestling 
in high school helped him coach others. 

"I wasn't the greatest wrestler in high school," 
James said. "I wasn't a state champ, but I can 
look at what someone is doing and tell them 
what they're doing wrong to help them expand 
their ability."

"They all have their ideas of how they want to do things," 
Lee Woodford, head wrestling coach, said. "When they get 
out on their own, they look at coaches from high school and 
others they admire, and they develop their own style. But 
while they're here, they do it our way." 

Designed to fit the students' schedules, the practicum 
allowed participants to build as much coaching 
into their daily lives as they wished. 

"They are exposed to the day- to - day grind," 
Woodford said. "A lot of college kids don't have a 
concept of that, but that's what we do every day. 
You give up your weekends to do this sport. It's 
not like in football where you pop in for a few 
hours and you're done. Ours are all- day suckers. 
They learn real fast how much time is involved 
in it." 

James said he didn't mind the time 
commitment. 

"I love being there," he said. "We had practice 
on New Year's Day at 8:30 in the morning and I 
was there. I'm going to be there every time they 
are." 

As part of the practicum, students were eligible to receive 
a coaching endorsement. 

"It's essential to education and finding a job," James said. 
"The coaching endorsement is one more aspect to help me get 
a job as a wrestling coach." 

Those coaching for the practicum gained a better 
perspective of coaching on a professional level. 

"They get exposed to exactly what it takes to be in this 
kind of a position," Woodford said. "They realize how many 
individuals you have to deal with and how different each 
are."

students learn to taste the flavors 



Four different glasses and a few other cups sat in 
front of each student. A basket of crackers adorned 
each table. After the glasses had been filled with a 
small amount of wine, the tasting process began. 
"You swirl to open (the wine) up," Emily Nemechek, senior 
in hotel and restaurant management, said. "Then you smell 
it and taste it." 

K-State offered a single credit-hour course that 
encompassed choosing and tasting wines. During the 
two -hour class, students tasted eight wines and described 
characteristics of each wine. In addition to tasting, students 
listened to a lecture about different types of wines and when 
each should be used. 

Nemechek previously took the class. 

"I'm actually taking it for credit this time," Nemechek said. 
"The second time around you have a base to go off of. It's easier 
to smell different aromas and taste different flavors." 

Elizabeth Barrett, associate professor in hotel, restaurant 
and institutional management, and dietetics, said the class 

was offered because students needed to understand more 

U 

about wines. 

"A lot of our students want to broaden their knowledge 
base about hospitality," Barrett said. "They just want to know 



more about wines." 

Because alcohol was not allowed in classrooms on campus, 
the class met at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, but that did not 
prevent students from taking the class. 

Jacob Forgy, senior in hotel and restaurant management, said 
the class was a good experience and would help those taking the 
class apply what they learned to future, professional situations. 

"My favorite part is learning about the wine," Jacob Forgy, 
senior in hotel and restaurant management, said. "I never really 
drank wine before, so it broadens my experience." 

Other students took the class because of an interest in the 
subject. 

"I need an extra credit hour to graduate in May and I like 
wine," Kristin Griffey, senior in apparel marketing and design, 
said. "My favorite wine is Riesling. I like sweet wine and it's a 
pretty sweet one." 

Griffey said it was interesting to describe the wines because 
each contained different flavors she was previously unaware. 
Brandy Sherwood, senior in social science, agreed and said there 
was more to wine than she originally thought. 

"I enjoy getting to taste all the different wines," Sherwood 
said. "Wines are so complex. There can be so many different 
things in it."

They shopped for gear and equipment on eBay. They 
quoted Lloyd Christmas from "Dumb and Dumber" on the 
back of the club T-shirt. They watched Winter X Games on 
ESPN. They talked about getting "hooked on it" the first 
time they snapped on a set of skis. 

Barely a year in existence, the club grew to 15 members. 
Not all attended every meeting, not all went on the ski trips, 
but that exemplified the group's philosophy, Rein Herrman, 
sophomore in mechanical engineering, said. 

"Our club is a social club," Herrman said. "If you want to 
show up, you show up, is the way I look at it. If you want to 
have fun with us, come have fun with us." 

Herrman said he joined after seeing a flier about the 
club's trip to Aspen, Colo. 

"When I got here, I always assumed there would be a 
snow ski club (on campus), but found out there wasn't," 
David Burch, president and junior in management, said. 
"So I just got some friends together and we just try to ski 
whenever possible and hang out together." 

The club's first ski trip was during winter break when 
they went to, as their T-shirt said, "Some place warm, a 
place where the beer flows like wine, where beautiful women 
instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano. I'm talking 
about a little place called Aspen, (Colo.)" 

For their second trip, on a sunny day before Groundhog 
Day, three members went to Snow Creek in Weston, Mo.

"For the plains it's cool, because there's no mountains, 
but there's still some place to ski," Lane Roney, sophomore in 
industrial engineering, said. "But compared to other places 
I've been, it's nothing really." 

Unseasonably warm temperatures caused skiers to leave 
their jackets in their cars, and the man-made snow to get 
slushy. 

"It's really sticky so it slows you down a lot," David 
Burch, president and junior in management, said. "It's a lot 
different than when it's 30 degrees." 

After the three took jumps in the Lewis and Clark Rail 
and Jump Park, Rein Herrman, sophomore in mechanical 
engineering, decided to go through the moguls. Although he 
broke his ski pole, Herrman said moguls were his favorite. 

"It's like putting together a puzzle," Herrman said. "If 
you don't turn at the right time you might get thrown in the 
air or, well, break your pole. It's something you have to do 
quite a bit to get better at it, and I need to get better at it." 

On the two-and-a-half-hour ride to Snow Creek, Burch 
and Herrman talked about ways to attract new members. 

"We need more awareness of it," Herrman said. "There 
is a lot of people that love to ski but don't really know about 
our club." 

With more people attending their monthly meetings 
in the K- State Student Union, the group could experience 
growth in many ways, including participating in 
competitions, Burch said. 

"There is definitely a lot of skiers who go to K- State," 
Burch said. "But a lot of them just don't know about it. Some 
people do know about ski club but just don't have the time 
to do it. We need more social activities to make it fun in 
between ski trips. Instead of just having meetings, going out 
and having a good time."

Loss of membership, senior leadership 
poses problems for campus organization 

ALL OFFICERS in the American Institute of Graphic 
Arts Club and many members graduated in Spring 2002. 
Julia Koller, junior in fine arts, was elected as the 2003 
president and experienced a change in the club. 

"The number one obstacle is the membership basically 
graduated," Koller said. "Number two, the AIGA has put 
together a new rule that we can't actually be affiliated with 
the club unless each member pays a $65 fee, and that's pretty 
expensive. So I think those are the problems right now." 

There were 20 members in the K- State chapter, but at a 
general meeting only three or four people showed up. 

"It just takes a little bit for people to come," David Burke, 
senior in fine arts, said. "Especially artists because our 
homework isn't like other peoples' homework where they 
read books and take tests. Our homework is major projects 
so a lot of people don't find time to come." 

But at meetings with special speakers, Koller said the 
room was packed. 

"Speakers come in and talk about design and artwork," 
Koller said. "Mostly we are trying to develop a network for 
graduation, for when we go out into the business world we 
want to be able to have good working relationships with 
people. It's about sharing ideas and knowledge." 

For the group to stay registered as a K- State organization 
it had to keep at least five members. 

"Most clubs have been around for years," said Brooke 
Taylor, student secretary at the Office of Student Activities 
and Services. "It's easier for most of the bigger clubs to keep 
members. A lot of clubs drop out and don't make it." 

The club discussed solutions to prevent depletion. 

"I believe that the best solution is promotion," Koller said. 
"We need to put together interesting meetings and events, 
and then heavily promote them through fliers, e-mail, and 
in- class announcements. There really isn't anything I can 
do about the $65 membership fee, but I think students will 
be more willing to join when they learn about how the AIGA 
supports designers and illustrators professionally."

new technique for counseling 




Group finds innovative use for sand, 
creative way to communicate with child 

RUNNING THEIR FINGERS along the smooth grains, 
Creative Arts Therapy Students spent an afternoon molding 
sand at their first Sand Tray Therapy Workshop, Feb. 2. 

A play therapist demonstrated sand tray therapy as a 
counseling tool. 

The process began with miniatures — people, animals, 
buildings and plants — and a tray of sand. Patients were en- 
couraged to create a picture or scene in the sand tray, about 
whatever they wanted, Denise Filley, play therapist, said. 

"You have them tell you a story about what they've made 
and you talk about it and relate it back to their life," Filley 
said. "It usually helps them work through issues or problems 
that they're having in their life, or do some healing if they've 
had some emotional trauma." 

After learning the process the patient went 
through, each member created a scene in the 
tray, and then the group discussed several 
members' trays. 

"When we did it, it was interesting how the 
atmosphere in the room changed," said Linda 
Dunne, graduate student in speech and CATS 
president. "Everyone became engrossed in what 
they were doing, like a meditation almost." 

The group learned the types of questions 
to ask a patient, and the symbolic meaning of 
objects. 

"Everything that is there (in the tray) has 
a symbol, has a representation for something," 
Filley said. "It has different meanings for differ- 
ent people." 

Filley said sand tray therapy benefitted 
counseling patients.

showed a different way to connect with people, Alissa Dun- 
can, graduate student in speech, said.

Benefits of Sand Tray Therapy 

Sand tray therapy allows for better 
communication with younger children. 

• Letting children play with the miniatures and 
sand helps them improve in therapy and heal 
from emotional scars. 

Sand tray therapy works for adolescents as well as 
adults. 

• The therapy allows an inner part of a person to 
come out.

Julie 
Christensen, junior in 
theater, and Tamarind 
Schaffler, graduate 
student in speech, work 
together on their sand 
tray creations. "This is 
really a great opportunity 
for all of our members," 
Sharit Kelley, graduate 
student in family studies 
and human services, 
said. "To get this kind 
of response, it's really 
remarkable."

Sweet „««, 
Serenade 

by Jennifer Newberry 

Valentine-grams provide opportunity 
for couples to give gifts 

E'S DAY GIFT, Valentine -grams 
were offered to students and community by the American 
String Teachers Association. One of four songs — "You Are My 
Sunshine," "Makin' Whoopi," "Let Me Call You Sweetheart" 
and "Love Me Tender" — could be selected for a personal 
sweetheart serenade. 

In addition to being serenaded, the recipients were given 
a red rose, candy and a card. 

"People don't normally get this — it's a surprise," 
Timothy Crawford, senior in music education, said. "You 
normally expect a rose or card, but not a rose, card, candy 
and serenade." 

For $25, the Valentine -grams answered the question of 
what to give a significant other on Feb. 14, Bethany Adams, 
sophomore in music education, said. 

"It's an important activity because sometimes Valentine's 
Day sneaks up on you," Adams said. "It's a cool alternative to 
last-minute gift ideas." 

Besides doing the activity for enjoyment, the string 
teachers needed a fund -raiser for the national conference 
they planned to attend March 27-29 in Columbus, Ohio. The 
group wanted to raise awareness of the services to increase 
the number of serenades from eight last year to at least 10 this 
year, Adams said. 

"It's important for us because of nationals," Addi Foster, 
senior in music education, said. "It's a function that makes 
money and shows people in the community string play and 
gets us out in the open. It exposes them to our organization. 
It's a novelty really." 

The group got a positive response from the community, 
Foster said. 

"Everyone really liked it," she said. "We got cards from 
a couple of gentlemen who ordered them. They said it was a 
really nice way to do something for Valentine's Day."

Students practice together for 
annual spring opera, share music 

JM March 6 -8, the audience 
awaited the K-State Opera Guild's spring performance of 
"The Merry Wives of Windsor." The Shakespearean comedy 
was based on a man tricked by two women he deceived. 

"It's a delightful, light opera," William Wingfield, instruc- 
tor and conductor of the operetta, said. "I like the comic 
aspects. It's a beautiful, charming comedy." 

Players in the opera practiced every weeknight for six 
weeks before opening night. 

"You train in a classical style," Allison Keane, president 
and junior in applied music, said. "We use vibrato because 
it is more natural for the body. It's mainly about relaxation 
and letting your body do the work." 

Opera Guild provided music intellects with a chance to 
get to know people who shared the same appreciation for 
vocal performance. 

"It's like a forum and you learn a lot about things going 
on in the opera world," Virginia Pape, junior in theater, said. 
"You can see real people who've made it." 

The opera guild was comprised of 30 members, both music 
and non-music majors. 

"I just loved to sing and opera is a different level of sing- 
ing," Matthew Fallesen, senior in applied music, said. "I just 
wanted to learn the techniques of real singing. Singing with 
good singers is the fun part of opera. It's a learning experi- 
ence. You learn from each other."

o The 

otars of 
the Past 

by Matt Gorney and Lindsey Thorpe 

Presentation uses modern software, 
Bible references to plot Bethlehem star 

from audience members as Frederick 
Larson, former Texas A&M University law professor, revealed 
the science behind the secrets of the Bethlehem star and 
important dates in the biblical life of Jesus Christ. 

The Lutheran Student Fellowship invited Larson to speak 
at McCain Auditorium, Jan. 30-31. He used a star-charting 
program to show where the stars were 2,000 years ago. 

Larson's presentation was free to students and community 
members. 

"I really liked how he pointed out all the biblical refer- 
ences," Amanda Engelman, senior in history, said. "He hit the 
high points that were important and made you want to go to 
the Web site to learn the rest of the details." 

Larson's presentation broke down passages from the Bible 
and his computer showed the skies on the specific date. 

"Computer software has become so capable," he said. 
"With the software, you can observe any time of day or 
weather." 

Larson finished his presentation by using historical 
records and Bible verses to pin down the exact day Christ 
was crucified and then went through a series of astronomical 
events that occurred on that day. 

"My favorite part is the last few moments when the whole 
story comes together — when the poem is completed and 
the meaning of it all comes clear," he said. "It's shocking 
that God would orchestrate such a poem of such amazing 
intricate detail." 

Larson said there obviously was a deeper meaning. 

"You'd have to be an idiot to not connect the dots," he 
said. "With so much detail, it's impossible to think it's an 
accident." 

Larson said audience members had visible reactions to 
his presentations. 

"A high percent find the star beyond interesting — they 
have a strong emotional reaction," he said. "You hear a lot of 
'I was just blown away' You see lots of red eyes. It's common 
to see people cry."

the evening by telling the 
story of how he turned 
down a young, neighbor- 
hood entrepreneur who 
was selling Christmas 
lawn decorations. Larson, 
who admitted he made 
a mistake, made his own 
decorations — three wise 
men and the Bethlehem 
star — and that was where 
his hunt started. "I realized 
I knew almost nothing 
about the Star of Bethle- 
hem," he said. "I thought, 
'wow, what if the star was 
a real event — wouldn't 
that be cool.'" — Photo by

Players forgo expensive lodging while on road, 
stay with opposing team members 



WHEN THE WOMEN'S RUGBY TEAM traveled to play 
a game, members of the team did not stay in hotels. 

Instead, they settled in with members of the opposing 
team. 

"This has been a tradition ever since I've played here," 
Shelley Vering, senior in marketing and international 
business, said. "Since there isn't a lot of funding for the team, 
this helped to save money and it was a good way of meeting 
new people." 

After the games, members of both teams celebrated by 
going to parties or banquets. The host teams planned the 
post- game entertainment. Vering said businesses often 
sponsored the celebrations to help with funds. 

Fund- raisers and money supplied by the university 
assisted the team with funding for travel. 

"I didn't mind carpooling to and from the other cities 
in order to play in a game," Amy Marsh, junior in hotel and 
restaurant management, said. "Singing along to the radio 
helped pass the time. But most of the time was spent figuring 
out where we were supposed to be going." 

Recruitment for the team soared to an all-time high of 



50 participants. Vering said last year there were 10 women 
on the team. 

"We really made the team more known this season," 
Vering said. "Word of mouth, fliers and advertisements in 
the newspaper all contributed to the increase of players." 

With the majority of the team being new to the game, 
Vering said the women's initial reaction to the amount of 
energy needed was enthusiastic. 

"The girls who were new to the sport were extremely 
respectful and willing to learn," said Kristy Rukavina, 
senior in architectural engineering and modern languages. 
"The inexperience wasn't necessarily a problem — it was just 
a hurdle that we got past."

Reception recognizes efforts of students, 
faculty leaders, campus organizations 

THROUGH THE THEME "Leadership for a Lifetime," the 
Blue Key Senior Honorary organized Leadership Recognition 
Day to honor and recognize students and advisers of registered 
organizations on campus. 

Attendees were invited to a reception at the Alumni Center 
ballroom, Feb. 10, where Michael Dikeman, of Block & Bridle 
Club, won the 2002 Advisor of the Year Award. 

"A lot of times it seems different leaders go unnoticed 
and we are really focusing on trying to promote honor and 
recognition to those leaders," said Tyler Breeden, director of 
Leadership Recognition Day and senior in agricultural eco- 
nomics. "We just want to give them their moment in the sun 
and say thank you for the work you've done." 

The event served as a way for Blue Key to find potential 
members on campus, but more importantly, Riley Scott, 
senior in horticulture, said, it served as a way to recognize 
student leaders and advisers on campus. 

"It can serve a lot of functions," Scott said. "It's a great way 
to reach some future leaders and current leaders on campus 
and let them know about (Blue Key). But I would say that's 
secondary to the recognition we want to give a current leader 
on campus and also an up-and-coming leader and their 
adviser; and just say, 'thank you, we realize all the hard work 
you put in to K- State and we just want to thank you for that 
and recognize you for that.'" 

With almost 200 people at the dinner, all 12 Blue Key 
members played an intricate role in organizing the event. 

"In the sense of recognizing leaders across K- State, this is 
what gets our name out the most," Tammy Jo Osborn, presi- 
dent and senior in political science, said. "In the sense that a 
lot of people come, we recognize a lot of people, and it takes a 
lot of time and a lot of energy to put this thing together." 

The theme, Breeden said, was based on the concept that 
leadership goes beyond time spent on campus. 

"Being a leader is a lifestyle," he said. "It's not something 
you gain through being in clubs and organizations. It's 
something that you continue to grow and develop and take 
advantage of leadership opportunities your whole life."

Elite group of students prepare for national finals 
of financial planning, gain real-world experiences 



to participate in the American 
Express Financial Planning Invitational had one month to 
complete a fictional, financial plan based on information 
provided to the team. 

"We have the month of February to write a 150 -page 
comprehensive plan," said Jamie Breeden, senior in family 
studies and human services. "We pretty much work on 
everything as a team." 

Wesley Uhl, senior in family studies and human services, 
said preparation for the competition was a lengthy process. 

"It's almost the equivalent of working a full-time job," 
Uhl said. "We put that many hours in." 

Breeden said the competition provided valuable experience 
before she got into the business world. 

"It's a good way for us to apply our knowledge," she said. 
"It gets our names out there and people start to know us out 
in the career world." 

Lucas Bucl, senior in finance, said the competition was 
good for his future. 

"It's great experience because I want to be a financial 
planner," Bucl said. "You have to understand all the concepts 
and put all the formulas in yourself." 

The rules forbade use of computerized financial software, 
but Microsoft Word and Excel could be used. 

Two teams from K- State competed within the university 



for the opportunity to send a plan to the actual competition, 
but only one team represented the school. 

The second team comprised of Alisa Weeks, senior in 
family studies and human services; Jennifer Cline, senior in 
marketing and international business, and Kyle Yaege, senior 
in family studies and human services. 

Only six schools were invited to travel to the finals and 
present financial plans. 

Gabriel Asebedo, president of Future Financial Planners 
and junior in family studies and human services, said K- State 
placed in the top six each year. 

"The students who go on this competition are the select or 
the cream of the crop," Asebedo said. "The American Express 
competition is the creme de la creme of competitions." 

One main focus of the Financial Planners focuses was to 
spread word of the organization on campus, Asebedo said. The 
group brought people in to speak about financial planning 
at meetings and began working on plans to attend events 
around the region. 

"This semester, we're focusing on travel," he said. "Last 
semester, we had a series of guest lecturers." 

Breeden said speakers were helpful to the group. 

"There are so many jobs you can take in financial 
planning," Breeden said. "I wouldn't know about those if we 
didn't have the speakers."

two heads are better than one 

question-and-answer game ignites teams 
intellect to compete for cash prize 



while judges, time keepers and 
scorekeepers prepared for the battle to take place in Blue- 
mont Hall. The competition was for the quickest minds. 

College Bowl, sponsored by the Union Program Council, 
took place Feb. 1. Teams competed in the double- elimina- 
tion competition by answering general-knowledge ques- 
tions. 

Before any competing began, some teams chose to prac- 
tice and be as mentally ready as possible. 

"We thought it would be good to brush up," Garett 
Relph, sophomore in political science, said. "It will help a 
little bit — get us back in shape." 

Relph said practicing involved a friend reading questions 
to the team members and treating it like a regular competi- 
tion. He said he believed the team would do well. 

"We're pretty confident," he said. "We figure we should 
take third at least." 

Daniel Strom, sophomore in nutritional sciences, said he 
and his team practiced the same way. 

"We were able to make a better team," Strom said. "We 
hope to get a feel for it, do well this year and better next 
year." 

Other teams chose not to practice. 

"I haven't done anything besides what I always do," Da- 
rin Bringham, senior in management information systems, 



said. "Just keeping informed about the news and what we 
normally do in classes." 

During the competition, teams used buzzers to answer 
toss-up questions, worth 10 points each. If a team answered 
correctly, it had an opportunity to answer a bonus question 
worth between 20 and 30 points. Rounds were split into two, 
seven-minute halves. 

Thomas Roth, junior in accounting; Benjamin Fenwick, 
sophomore in political science; Jim Copeland, senior in 
mathematics; Dennis Goin, junior in history, and Micah 
Hawkinson, senior in English, constituted the winning 
team. 

"All the guys were really well informed about a lot of 
different things," Hawkinson said. "For me, (the key) was 
watching Jeopardy all the time." 

The team won $100 and an all-expense paid trip to the 
regional tournament in Lawrence, Feb. 21-23. 

"We might get together and play 'You Don't Know Jack' 
or Trivial Pursuit," he said. "We probably aren't going to 
have a lot of formal preparation." 

Ashley Friesen, UPC special events committee chair and 
junior in English, said College Bowl went well. 

"I was very pleased with the competition," she said. "The 
teams were very well balanced in terms of knowledge. The 
tournament went very smoothly."

16 players give sweep a new meaning 
after yearly game of broomball at ice rink 

at one location 
would symbolize a community cleanup, but Saturday, Feb. 
8, members of the Lutheran Campus Ministry and the 
Canterbury Club applied those cleaning tools on the ice 
rink at City Park. 

Wearing sneakers and armed with brooms, 16 
students and friends took the ice to compete in a game of 
broomball.

"Once a year in February we rent the rink to play," Pastor 
Jayne Thompson said. "They say we are the only wild ones 
who do this." 

With rules similar to hockey, and played with a child- 
size soccer ball, broomball incorporated teamwork and 
control. 

Broomball originated in the early 1900s in Canada. 
The first games were recorded in Saskatchwan in 1909. 
The recreation evolved to formal tournaments in countries 
around the world, including 
official teams in Iowa, Minnesota 
and Wisconsin. 

The Lutheran Campus 
Ministry began playing broomball 
when Thompson came to K- State 
fall 1993. 

As members gathered at the 
center of the rink, Thompson 
stated the rules: no high sticking, 
no whacking, if someone goes 
down make sure they are OK. 








► 



Teams were chosen and positions decided, then two 
opposing forwards faced off over the ball. 

One. Two. Three. Whack. 

The game began. 

Players shuffled across the slippery surface while trying 
to make contact with the ball. 

Shouts and screams erupted as players lost their footing 
on the ice and fell. 

"There's a strategy: play hard and try not to kill people," 
Thompson said. "It's controlled chaos." 

Matthew Cobb, leader of the Canterbury Club, learned 
a few tricks during his first experience with broomball 
Saturday. 

"Mostly play the person," he said. "Get in position and 
try to hit the ball." 

Cristy Fenton, senior at Manhattan Christian College, 
was another first-time player. 

"It's a lot of fun to see everybody," she said. "It's a 
good way to release some stress from the week. It's a little 
competitive because most of us know each other, but most 
aren't all that serious." 

The game's competition constituted cheers for goals, 
chants for intimidation and a few battle wounds. 

Bruised shins, cut fingers and bumped heads included 
some of the risks of the game. 

"It's amazing we don't get more hurt," Thompson said. 
"It's a frenzy out there." 

Daniel Reazin, senior in elementary education, sported a 
bruised hip from the week before the game, so he stayed out 
of major conflicts by serving as goalie. 

Although teams started keeping score, players became 
engrossed in the game and lost count, which was why the 
games always ended in a tie, Thompson said. 

Reazin said the competitiveness concluded at the 
completion of the game. 

"It's real for a while out there," he said, "but at the end, 
it's just for fun." 

After two hours of play in the frigid environment and 
four bent brooms, members went to a coffee shop to get 
warm and enjoy discussions.

Literary magazine gives students a place 
to publish their artistic works 

3NE, the student- run literary magazine, 
showcased written and artistic work of students nationwide. 
The publication was comprised of poetry, fiction, non- 
fiction, photography and other visual art samples. 

"We choose the best of all the submissions, not just 
the best from K- State," Shannon Draper, graduate student 
in English, said. "It gives the magazine a professional 
quality." 

Each section editor had a staff of three to six readers 
in charge of judging the merits of each submission. The 
section editor first read the stories to determine which 
reader was best suited to judge the entry. 

"We divide the entries up and the readers pick the top 
few in each category," said Erin Billing, co- editor in chief 
and graduate student in English. "Certain language and 
writing work better for people to read." 

Once entries were chosen for the magazine, a 
competition determined the best entries in each section. 
Winners were awarded a cash prize and special recognition 
in the contributor's section. 

In addition to publishing the magazine, the editors 
designed and maintained the publication's Web site. As 
editors updated the site, they tried to include useful features 
for people interested in the magazine, Stephen Sink, co- 
editor in chief and graduate student in English, said. 

"We were thinking of including things like information 
about our contest winners, and maybe the entries that 
won," Sink said. "We could also make some of the boring 
stuff, like advertising, more interesting." 

Touchstone received entries from writers all around 
the country, Draper said. 

"We get quite a lot of entries that aren't from K- State," 
she said. "A large part of the stack, about 50 or 60, is from 
out of state."

holiday sparks new awareness 

Club organizes Sexual Responsibility Week, 
condom rose sale to celebrate Valentine's Day 



IN A DIMLY LIT ROOM in the back of Aggie Station, a 
small group of students sat around tables, eating and social- 
izing. 

However, these students were not discussing classes or 
weekend plans. As members of Sexual Health Awareness Peer 
Educators, they discussed risk factors, STDs and roses made 
of condoms. 

"Our basic function is to educate the K- State community," 
said Shana Kerstetter, senior in family studies and human 
services. "A lot of college students don't have enough educa- 
tion on sexual awareness." 

SHAPE kicked off Sexual Responsibility Week, Feb. 10. 
Members distributed information in the K- State Student 
Union. Their highlight event involved selling bouquets of roses 
made of condoms to raise awareness before Valentine's Day. 

"We're not promoting sex," lessica Ballard, junior in 
nutrition and exercise science, said. "We want people to be 
responsible." 

Members said their message was an important one to 
bring to K- State. 

"Being a college student, this is one of the most valuable 
and interesting topics," Abigail Maze, senior in biology, said. 
"The more you know, the more accurately you can make your 
choices." 



SHAPE set up booths in the Union to distribute condoms 
and information. 

loshua Umbehr, senior in nutrition science, said many 
students disliked discussing those issues in public. 

"No one wants to touch condoms in front of everyone," 
Umbehr said. "They're mature enough to have sex, but they're 
not comfortable talking about it." 

Maze said SHAPE did not present a particular message 
on right or wrong sexual behavior. 

"We're totally nonjudgmental about what their choices 
are," Maze said. "We just want them to make the choice 
that's best for them. Everyone has their right to their opin- 
ion, whether they think abstinence is the only way to go or 
that they can have sex with anyone who's cute. We just stress 
their right to be informed." 




WORKING FOR SHAPE, 
Jacquelyn Paetzold, junior 
in anthropology, finishes 
making a condom rose. 
"It's a great program 
because people need 
to be more aware of the 
risks and keep themselves 
healthy," Paetzold said. 
"Sexual health just seems 
like a taboo, and we're 
trying to make the subject 
more approachable, 
especially for students."

In-depth classes teach students how to perform CPR on adults, infants, children 



YEAR the American Red Cross Club 
expanded membership and programs offered to students and 
community members. 

Aside from helping with blood drives and assisting in 
emergency disaster relief, club members taught first-aid and 
CPR courses for students, area elementary school children, 
and community members. 

Dr. Briana Nelson, club adviser and assistant professor 
of family studies and human services, said the organization 
included five committees dealing with health and safety 
issues, emergency assistance, blood services, public relations 
and finance. 

"Finance, education, public relations — any major can be 
involved," she said. "People from all different walks of life and 
all different professions can be involved in Red Cross." 

The Health and Safety Committee organized of first aid 
and CPR training, geared toward different groups of people. 
Joshua Kahler, committee chairman, and senior in biology 
and pre-medicine, said the training was more than just basic 
first aid. 

"We teach first response in CPR," he said. "It's fairly in- 
depth. We teach how to perform CPR on adults, children 
and infants." 

One of the newest programs instituted by the Health and 
Safety Committee was a first aid program for baby sitters, 



geared toward 11- to 14 -year- olds, Kahler said. 

The organization geared programs toward college student 
and adults. Nelson said the Emergency Assistance Committe 
prepared apartment- safety packets for landlords to distribut 
to their tenants. She said the packets included local emergenc 
numbers, tips on what to do during severe weather, and othe 
useful emergency information. 

CPR and first-aid training were also available to K-Stat 
students. Kahler, a certified CPR instructor, taught course 
throughout the year, averaging six training sessions eac 
semester. He said the courses were useful for students require 
to become certified for their major. 

Kimberly Dicus, senior in secondary education, said sh 
was required to complete her CPR certification in order t 
student teach. 

"We practiced (CPR) a lot," she said. "I'll be able to d 
this when I need to." 

Aside from training people in safety and first aid, Nelsc 
said the Red Cross Club was useful in recruiting moi 
volunteers for the national organization. 

"Another purpose of the club is to get people involved 
an earlier age," Nelson said. "No matter where a person goe 
there will be a Red Cross (organization), so we want to g 
people involved in college so they can stay involved wherevi 
they end up later in life."

coach inspires wins 

Oldest North American sport 
approaches 13th year at K- State 

A NEW COACH and a split conference worked to the 
advantage of the Lacrosse Club as the team was predicted to 
win the Great Rivers Lacrosse Conference. 

The team had many returning players to form the 31- 
person squad. After a successful fall tournament season, 
which included a 10-9 victory over K- State Lacrosse alumni 
for the first time ever, the team began practice for the 2003 
season, Feb. 5. 

"It's just a time to get people out for the team," Brian 
Gehlen, graduate student in kinesiology, said. "We get extra 
time to play, more practice and teach the new guys to play. 
And, we have some fun." 

The acquisition of Alexander Cohen, Nov. 4, gave the team 
an experienced player walking the sidelines during games. 

"It's been really good (having Cohen as coach)," Gehlen 
said. "He's played in a lot of different places and has been 
around the game a while now." 

Gehlen, in his fourth year on the team, said the 
aggressiveness and speed of the game lured him to it. 

"It gives people an opportunity to strap on some pads and 
hit someone," he said. "I can't play football anymore, but now 
I still have that chance. It's a lot of fun going out there and 
throwing someone around." 

Even though each member had to pay a $150 registration 
fee, fund- raisers, such as taking chair backs down at KSU 
Stadium, helped the team. 

"I wouldn't exactly call it fun, but it's working together 
with your teammates," Shane Apple, senior in journalism and 
mass communications, said. "Any hardships you go through 
with your friends makes you bond more." 

That bond remained well after players' collegiate lacrosse 
careers were finished, Daniel Ard, senior in computer 
engineering, said. 

"Finding funds and support for us to play lacrosse in 
various tournaments and host our own tournaments is not 
easy to do," Ard said. "It is for this reason that we thank our 
sponsors and especially our alumni. It seems like the alumni 
are always at our games to support us and give us a financial 
hand when needed."

11 -week course investigates p^H 
religion, challenges some to examine beliefs through groups 




iE. Those were the words of a man standing 

before a room full of people, challenging them to take part in 

an 11 -week study of Christianity. 

John Schwartz, speaker and co-director of the Alpha 

Course, kicked off the first series of discussions with a talk 

labeled, "Christianity. Boring, 

Irrelevant, Untrue?" Topics 

presented throughout the course 

centered on the fundamentals 

of the Christian faith, including 

prayer, the Bible and Jesus Christ, 

Sarah Schultz, co-director with 

Schwartz, said. 

"It's an investigation of the 

WORKING TOGETHER, claims of Christianity," Schultz 

Dean Behrens, sophomore • , n^. , • . , 

in family studies and said " 0ur g oal ls to have an °P en environment 

human services, Kimberly so wna tever you believe you can say it aloud and 
Dicus, senior in secondary 
education, Bobby Craw- process it. We, of course, would hope that people 
ford, sophomore in com- 
puter engineering, and would come to know Christ." 
Kassie Schmidt, freshman . , . . . , 
in elementary education, Travis Schram, senior in marketing and 

prepare chili. - Photo by international business, said the non- threatening 

MattStamey & 

atmosphere of the course encouraged people to 
participate. 

"A lot of the time, Christian groups come across as just 
wanting to push their agenda," Schram said. "The Alpha group 
lets people come and discuss. We don't have an agenda. We 
present our ideas and let people discuss them." 




Once a week, Alpha course participants gathered at the 
Baptist Student Center for dinner and discussion. Seated with 
their assigned groups, participants ate together and listened to 
a speaker. They then broke off into their student-led groups 
to share their thoughts. 

"I tell the small group leaders to not be afraid to leave 
with things unresolved," Schram said. "If people leave with 
questions, it's a good thing because they're going to try and 
find answers. The more controversy, the more people are 
challenged." 

During the meetings, teams of students met to pray. 

"We go upstairs and pray before the speaker," Ann 
Crawford, senior in elementary education, said. "We pray 
for them and we pray for certain individuals we know and 
pray that everything goes smoothly." 

In its fourth semester, the course expanded from a group 
of eight to 10 people to more than 50 interested students. 

"It's a kind of grass-roots thing the way it kind of spreads 
through more people," Schultz said. "It's catching on because 
I think people's lives are being changed and they're excited so 
they share it with all their friends." 

Schram said interest from college students was common 
during this time of their life. 

"College is a time of emotional highs and lows. It's an 
accelerated life so the question, 'Is there anything more to life?' 
comes up," he said. "The people who come are wondering, 
'What else is there?' We hope to help them find out."

house to raise money for the McCain Performance Series 
programs. More than 950 community members bought 
tickets for $15 for access to all seven houses. 

Eugene Lauglin, treasurer of the Friends of McCain Board 
of Directors, said it was the most successful tour. 

Ambassadors worked at the Carlin home, 1650 Sunnyslope 
Lane. 

"It was educational to see another part of Manhattan," 
Mallory Malone, ambassador president and senior in finance, 
said. "We got to learn some history of that family." 

Stationed in rooms around the house, ambassadors and 
Friends of McCain volunteers delivered information to tour 
participants and answered questions. 

Ambassadors quickly memorized the information, but 
carried a fact card for support, Malone said. 

Ambassadors worked at the Carlin home during two of 
the three volunteer shifts. Malone and two other members 
worked from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Four other members worked 



from 1:30 to 4 p.m. 

Malone spoke to visitors in the great room. She described 
how the original living room and porch became the great room 
and breakfast nook. She pointed out historic furniture pieces 
like a rocking chair from Germany, and tables that had been 
in the Carlin family for generations. 

Upstairs Laura Davisson, senior in history, invited guests 
to look at the family-made quilts hanging on the walls. 

Although they repetitively recited information, Davisson 
said it remained interesting. 

"You see different people who ask different questions, 
which made it interesting," she said. 

During the second shift, Paige Leitnaker, sophomore in 
psychology, described the upstairs doll room to visitors. 

"It was fun to step into someone else's home," Leitnaker 
said. "(It was) neat especially during the holidays to see all the 
beautiful decorations. It is a fun time for people to get out." 

Ambassadors also volunteered to usher at all McCain 
performances. Members informed students about events by 
chalking sidewalks. 

"It's a great opportunity to get involved on campus and 
broaden your horizons," Malone said. "You get to be a voice 
for more cultural experiences on campus."

step education 

Unique dance expresses 
culture, incorporates students 

AS STUDENTS SLOWLY SHUFFLED into Union 212 the evening 
of Jan. 30, Angel Wilson, graduate student in student counseling and 
personnel services, took the microphone. 

"There are seats in the front row," she said. "Come sit next to 
someone you don't know. Hug your neighbor." 

As part of Diversity and Respect Appreciation Diversity In Col- 
lege And Life week, and in correspondence with the residence halls, 
the Black Student Union took the audience through the history of 
Stepping. 

The meeting started, as always with groups clearing out of the 
way to form a circle and clap and sing to the tune of "Let Every Voice 
Sing." 

Then Paris Rossiter, junior in art and BSU president, and Orion 
Carrington, senior in finance, went to the center of the circle. 

"Yes, this is fun, but it's also a part of our heritage," Rossiter said as 
he prepared to perform. "Be here to learn and don't take it lightly." 

After Rossiter and Carrington performed, it 
was time for the audience to shadow the moves. 
"It's great to see this many people from different cultures do some- 
thing fun," Audra Dudte, senior in architecture, said. "I wish we 
could do more stuff like this to have a good time." 

With origins in South Africa, Stepping evolved from singing and 
chanting to include various dance moves and rhythms. 

"I knew this would be an awesome experience," Erica Smith, 
senior in apparel textile marketing and design, said, "for students not 
exposed to the way, historically, black students represent themselves 
through Step and that kind of stuff." 

After two black fraternities and one black sorority performed their 
versions of Step and the evening came to a close, the goal of teaching 
diversity had been achieved, Dudte said. 

"It's (weeks such as RADICAL) very important," she said. "It 
opens people up to see what else is out there. It's important to adapt 
to new things and have an appreciation for new cultures."

FEB. 1 MARKED THE BEGINNING of the Year of the 
Ram. 

The Vietnamese Student Association celebrated the 
Lunar New Year Feb. 8 at the K- State Student Union. The 
group shared the traditional "Lion Dance" and a traditional 
Vietnamese dance. 

"We have a celebration every year for the Vietnamese 
community for awareness and what New Years is about," Vy 
Bui, senior in finance, said. "Each year there is a different 
animal." 

The New Year festival: Tet Nguygen-Dan, was a celebrated 
family affair, a time of reunion and thanksgiving. 

"Usually in bigger cities it is easier to celebrate with 
family," Bui said. "Here we put on a celebration to remember 
our heritage." 

VSA invited the VSA from the University of Kansas to 
share in the event. 

"KU and K- State have a really good relationship," Thao 
Nguyen, senior in secondary education, said. "We want to 
show our appreciation." 

In return, the KU group organized its own celebration 
Feb. 15.

"It's a tradition that was started back in the '70s," Duy Do, 
senior in mechanical engineering said. "It's always fun when 
we go there. We're their friends and they're our friends. We 
have a good relationship going." 

After more than four months preparation and with 
students, faculty and their KU friends in the audience, VSA 
performed Tet Program 2003 

"This is our main event," Do said. "All our fund-raising 
goes toward the celebration. This 
year we received funding from (the 
Student Governing Association) 
which really helped." 

Practicing originally choreo- 
graphed dances and making deco- 
rations encompassed much of the 
preparation time. 

"The dance, Denise (Le) cre- 
ated it," Nguyen said. "She created 
it, picked the song and showed it to 
us. We practiced for more than two 
months." 

Justin Huynh, senior in 
mechanical engineering, attended the celebration and said 
the group's hard work showed in their performance. 

"They did a really good job," he said. "There was a lot of 
organization. They focused on more people — not just on 
Asian — but on people not Asian, like American. The show 
was for everybody."

Bowling brings golfers together 
at initial semester meeting 

R and the sound of crashing 
pins, one might not have expected to find a group of golf 
course management majors. However, Zucky Bowl bowling 
alley was exactly where the K- State Student Chapter of the 
Golf Course Superintendents Association of America began 
the spring semester Feb. 3. 

Although members said the club did not usually require an 
extensive time commitment, they enjoyed the opportunity to 
socialize and to make connections with others in the major. 
"I've definitely gotten to know a lot more people who are 
in my grade level," Christopher Erickson, senior in golf course 
management, said. "Those people will be future contacts. I try 
and maintain contact with people who have graduated." 

Brian Fleske, junior in golf course management, agreed 
that meeting people was important. 

"I'm in it for the connections," Fleske said. "Later in life, 
we're going to be working together. I'm going to know these 
people, so if I need any help from somebody, I'll be able to 
call them up." 

Fleske and other veterans helped younger members out 
as well. 

"Every now and then I'll have some guy who's a freshman 
or sophomore ask me what class I'm taking or what kind of 
internships he should be applying for," Fleske said. "I'll give 
them a little advice." 

Younger members said they appreciated the learning 
experience. 

"(Older members help with) knowing where people are 
in the country with jobs," Ryan Hesseltine, freshman in golf 
course management, said. "To my knowledge, it takes some 
experience. You have to start low and work your way up." 

Besides the help members provided for each other, GCSAA 
stood out among other organizations for other reasons — the 
club consisted entirely of men. 

"It's a male-dominated industry," Fleske said. "I think 
there are just no women interested. We don't do anything 
that a woman wouldn't fit right in with. We don't go to strip 
joints or anything."

Event provides opportunity to dress for Halloween, 
fund research for children with cancer 



DRESSED IN HALLOWEEN ATTIRE and 
surrounded by envelopes and papers, more than 
600 students supported St. Jude's Hospital as part 
of the nationwide Up 'Til Dawn program. Each 
student wrote 50 letters to friends and family 
asking for donations to the hospital. 

Teams of six or more worked toward raising 
$750 to attend the Up 'Til Dawn celebration 
March 28 at the Chester E. Peters Recreational 
Complex. 

In addition to students attending the event, 
some of St. Jude's patients and their families also 
participated. The families had the opportunity 
to share their experiences in fighting severe ill- 
nesses. 

"There was a guest speaker whose 5 -year- 
old son, Kyler, had retinal cancer," Leeann 
Armstrong, freshman in apparel marketing and 
design, said. "Kyler's mom spoke to us about how 
much St. Jude's helped in their fight against the 
cancer. It was touching to hear her story, and 
I think it helped get everyone in the mood to 
help out." 



The community service proj- 
ect gave the entire campus a way 
to unite by volunteering, said Sol 
Pettit-Scott, senior in chemical 
engineering and executive board 
member. 

"This is an amazing event," he 
said. "It's bigger than the greeks, 
bigger than K- State, bigger than the 
residence halls, even bigger than the 
Manhattan community." 

This project fulfilled one of the 
goals for the greek system, said 
Sarah McCaffrey, Panhellenic 
Council president and senior in 
mass communications. 

"One of the cornerstones of the greek system 
at K- State is our emphasis on philanthropy and 
community service," McCaffrey said. "Up 'Til 
Dawn gives fraternity and sorority members, as 
well as the rest of the K- State community, an 
opportunity to come together and raise money to 
support children who desperately need help."

Night without 

a Roof

Sleepout gives Silver Key members the 
chance to experience, help homelessness 

UNDER THE MANHATTAN starlight, members of the 
Silver Key Sophomore Honorary brought sleeping bags and 
pillows to the K- State Student Union Plaza Sept. 20. 

To raise awareness of homelessness in Manhattan, 
approximately 20 members spent the night outdoors. 

Silver Key raised nearly $1,600 in the event, which went to 
Manhattan Emergency Shelter. The money bought necessities 
and funded programs the shelter provided for Manhattan 
homeless. 

"It was well worth our time as a group," said April 
Eisenhauer, sophomore in architectural engineering. "I'm 
excited to see what next year's group can do." 

Silver Key began the fund raiser in 1995. The members 
were required to get donations. Last year the sleep out was 
canceled due to the Sept. 11 events, but the group still raised 
$1,850 through donations. 

This year the event was made more personal when the 
group took a field trip before the sleep out. 

"We actually toured the shelter on the day of the sleep out," 
Eisenhauer said. "It made me realize how blessed I am." 

The sleep out also offered the group a chance to get to 
know each other better. Often, members only saw each other 
at their biweekly meetings. 

"We did some group building, some cooperation and some 
getting to know you," Eisenhauer said. "I just wanted to learn 
more about the other members of the group." 

Cassie Ernzen, sophomore in family studies and human 
services, said that the activities were fun and agreed with 
Eisenhauer that the sleep out allowed the group to bond. 

After it started to rain, the group moved its equipment 
under the Union's north overhang. 

"We ended up staying until about 5 or 5:30 a.m.," Ernzen 
said. "It started pouring rain about 2:30 a.m." 

Even though it rained, Ernzen said she had fun. 

"I had a great time with the rest of the members of Silver 
Key," Ernzen said. "I really didn't know what to expect at the 
beginning."

After Hours provides students with 
alternative end-of-week activities 



K- STATE AFTER HOURS provided a different setting 
for those who wanted to go out on Friday nights but did not 
want to be part of the Aggieville scene. 

"We view it as alternative programming," said Samantha 
Musil, graduate in public administration and After Hours 
coordinator. "It gives students an alternative to going out 
to the bars but also gives them something to do on Friday 
night." 

Musil said K- State was not the only college with a Friday 
program. 

"The Friday programming had become popular at 
universities across the country," she said. "All the major 
universities do some sort of programming." 

Free food and a movie were regular activities while 
pumpkin decorating, caricature drawings, sumo wrestling 
and other events were featured throughout the year. 

"I came to watch the movie," Craig Miller, freshman in 
business administration, said Oct. 18. "It gives you something 
else to do instead of going to parties." 

Tim Garrett, sophomore in information systems, said 
because of After Hours' evening activities, caffeinated drinks 
were critical.

"The coffee is good," Garrett said. "Anytime you do 
anything after 10 p.m., you need coffee." 

Garrett said music ranked as his favorite part of After 
Hours. 

"I liked the live bands the first week I came," he said. 
"Live music is always good." 

Each week, 200 to 300 people attended, Musil said. More 
popular activities attracted larger numbers. 

T-shirt tie -dying at the pep rally was a popular activity. 
"For the pep rally, there were over 500 (people). We were out 
of T-shirts at 10 p.m.," Musil said. 

Musil said the goal of After Hours was to conduct quality 
programming that would benefit a majority of students. She 
said even with a small budget, After Hours kept the cost of 
admission free, provided good entertainment and quality 
programs. 

"That's one of the philosophies behind it," Musil said. 
"Give students something they can do without paying for 
it." 

Elizabeth Cronn, freshman in kinesiology, said she was 
a fan of the price. 

"My favorite thing is that it's free and fun," Cronn said. 
"I have no money to go out and do stuff." 

After Hours began in fall 2001 as First Friday, but in 
fall 2002 had expanded from once a month to every Friday. 
Musil said the change helped people remember when it was 
and accommodated increased popularity. 

"It went over good," she said. "They had good attendance 

records and thought it would be better to have it every Friday 

rather than just the First Friday."

Bakery Science Club creates cookies, bread every 
week to raise money, gain hands-on experience 



THE SWEET AROMA of cookies engulfed the baking 
lab of Shellenberger Hall. Cookie recipes were mixed and 
loaves of bread formed in their pans. Ingredient after ingredi- 
ent was tossed into the 80 -quart mixing bowls. 

Tuesdays, Bakery Science Club members fired up their 
ovens for the weekly Wednesday bake sale. 

From bakery science management to engineering, any- 
one was welcome to be a part of the club. 

"It's just crazy to get the job done," Kelly Grant, sopho- 
more in bakery science management, said. "The ones who 
went every week, we got really close." 

Preparations were finished Wednesdays before the sale. 

"We mixed the breads on Tuesday and baked them on 



Wednesday; that way, they were baked fresh," Grant said. 
"People told us they could smell the bread all the way from 
the street." 

Some weeks the club sold out of cookies and other weeks 
they sold out of bread. It was a gamble to guess which would 
sell the most, Grant said. 

Whether customers craved breads, cookies or the fea- 
tured item of the week, the club provided the cure. 

"Once in a while I would take my time leaving my lab 
on Wednesdays so I could stop by and buy a sugar cookie 
or two," Katherine Spiess, freshman in animal sciences and 
industry, said. "I could never walk by and not be drawn in by 
the smell of fresh cookies."

brown bag luncheon lounge 

Adult Student Services offers non-traditional 
students place to eat, study, socialize 



DESIGNED with non-traditional students 
in mind, Adult Student Services offered Brown 
Bag Lunches twice each week to provide a time 
and place students could interact. 

The program started in 1986 with speakers 
who discussed topics ranging from financial aid 
to family counseling to stress management. 

Nancy Bolsen, director of Adult Student 
Services, said the original idea was student 
driven and the Association of Adults Returning 
to School was responsible for the format and 
agenda. 

When the last non-traditional student 
organization disbanded in 1995, Adult Student 
Services took over the responsibility for making 
room arrangements with the K- State Student 
Union Reservation Office. 

"Through the years, I think the opportunity 
to have a designated space to call their own has 
allowed them to meet new friends," Bolsen said. 
"It has provided information through resources 
and referrals, giving students a place to come 
and share experiences, a quiet space to regroup, 
a place to network with other adult students, a 
comfort zone and it makes a statement to feel 



acknowledged, valued and respected." 

Douglas Gibson, student in open-option, 
said socializing, relating to other adults and 
participating in group therapy were benefits 
of the lunches. Gibson attended the lunches for 
three years, and said he rarely missed them. 

"There are only two things that would keep 
me from missing the lunches," he said. "Those 
would be if I were contained in a rubber room 
or if I were in prison." 

The lunches were offered each Tuesday and 
Wednesday during the semester, including 
finals week. Throughout the first weeks of each 
semester, information about services offered 
through Adult Student Services was presented. 

If a student was a parent, married, 25 years 
old or was starting or returning to higher 
education after a three-year absence, Adult 
Student Services offered a one -stop shop, 
Bolsen said. 

"Adult students, both undergraduate and 
graduate, make up about 21 percent of the entire 
student body," Bolsen said. "This provides an 
excellent opportunity for those students to 
interact with one another."

be when we grow up," 
Gibson said. — Photo by

Scott Hammack, graduate 
student in mechanical 
engineering, jumps over 
a barrier on the cycling 
track. The race was the 
second annual CrossLogic 
Cyclocross Challenge in 
English Landing Park in 
Parkville, Mo. "To recruit 
members for the team 
this year, we made stickers 
that looked like address 
labels with the meeting 
times on them and stuck 
them on people's bikes 
on campus," Hammack 
said. "We got quite a bit of 
response from doing this."

arid Over 
the Barrier

Intense, weekly practices prepare 
cyclers for local, national competitions 

CYCLING CLUB competitions differed depending on 
the season. Other than mountain and road races, the cyclers 
participated in cyclocross races that required more than just 
riding bikes. 

"In the cyclocross race, once we reach a barrier, we have 
to get off the bikes and carry them over the barrier," said 
Scott Hammack, vice president and graduate student in 
mechanical engineering. "After we're over the barriers, we 
continue down the trail until we reach another barrier, and 
the whole process starts over again." 

Aside from the different types of races members 
participated in, the opponents also varied. Public races were 
open for anyone, including professionals. Collegiate races 
offered a closer contest since skills and ages were similar and 
because fewer racers competed, Hammack said. 

Because of the unpredictable competition in the public 
races, Hammack said the team wasn't able to accurately 
gauge their skill. 

"We did training rides three times a week," Mark Smelser, 
freshman in mechanical engineering, said. "Once a week we 
would do an intense short ride. Another time we would do 
a medium-level, medium-length ride. And the other would 
last for about four hours, but it wouldn't be as intense."

To mentally prepare for the races, team members took 
practice seriously. 

Smelser said his first major race Sept. 28 in Nebraska 
made him nervous because he wasn't sure about the trail 
and the competitions. Despite his anxiety, he won. 

"I did a whole lot better than I thought I did," Smelser 
said. "The hills weren't what I was used to, but I did my best 
and I won." 

In addition to competing against local teams, such as 
the University of Kansas and the University of Nebraska, the 
club also competed in Burlington, Vt. at the national level 
in October. 

"As a team we finished 55th out of 130, which wasn't 
bad," Hammack said. "We learned a lot about the race by 
competing in it. Hopefully we can use this knowledge in 
order to prepare to compete at the national level again." 




BRAD PATTON, senior in 
sociology, leads two of his

racing in collegiate races 
over public ones," Patton 
said. "They are more laid 
back, and because we're 
all of similar age, it's more 
of a party atmosphere."

Club provides outlet, social atmosphere for 
students, Manhattan chess enthusiasts 

KNOCKS MINGLED with loud chatter in K- State Student 
Union 206. James Wymore, sophomore in pre -medicine, 
stared at the game board. He was in deep concentration, but 
not so much as to miss the banter of his friends. 

"I like the all-around activity of what you do in Chess 
Club," Wymore said. "You keep it moving, keep it fun, keep 
it loud. We tend to get a little loud and verbally abusive." 

The only serious thing about the club was fun, he said. 

"We're always throwing remarks at each other," said 
Jason Stangle, president and junior in animal sciences and 
industry. "If it was serious all the time, I'd probably drop it. 
We're normal people. We're not like Bobby Fischer. We don't 
think and live chess - we have real lives." 

Reasons behind joining the club varied from avoiding 
homework to enjoying a social outlet. 

"I like the competition and getting to know people, just 
outside of the actual game," Craig Wilson, sophomore in 
information systems, said. "It can allow you to meet different 
students. It's also good for the mind. It's a lot of strategy and 
thinking, which is always a good thing." 

Wymore said he liked the mental challenge. 

"Playing chess makes my brain function in ways that 
school doesn't," he said. "It makes the brain work every now 
and then and causes me to focus on control and general 
attacking strategies."

practice makes perfect 

Club provides opportunity to speak in public, 
overcome nervousness associated with speech 



ACCORDING TO A SURVEY reported in the Book of 
Lists, a fear of public speaking was ranked No. 1 while the 
fear of death was ranked No. 2. 

"People are intimidated by speaking in front of others 
because they are afraid of rejection," Mark Pultz, freshman 
in business administration, said. "Nobody wants to look like 
they don't know what they are talking about." 

Twenty members of Powercat Masters Toastmasters met 
every Tuesday in Durland Hall for an hour to augment their 
public speaking skills. 

"Toastmasters consists of everyone getting a chance to 
speak through different roles," said Audra Dudte, senior in 
architectural engineering. "These roles include speaking, 
evaluating, answering impromptu questions or telling a 
joke." 

At each meeting, members were given the opportunity to 
conduct meetings, present one-to two-minute speeches over 
an assigned topic or evaluate the given speeches by pointing 
out strengths and weaknesses. 

"I went from being a person who could barely finish a 
sentence without saying 'uh' at least twice and now I can speak 
for 10 minutes without any verbal faux pas," said William 
Schwartz, junior in construction science and management. "I 
actually enjoy the opportunity to speak to a group of people, 
no matter who they are."

MAPJ and Green Party demonstrate 
against military action toward Iraq 

AFTER PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH spoke to the U.N. General 
Assembly, Sept. 12, warning the threat of Iraqi weapons, Campus Greens 
and the Manhattan Alliance for Peace and Justice members began 
demonstrating on the corner of 17th and Anderson with signs reading 
"WAGE PEACE" and "NO WAR IN IRAQ." 

"In the media, we're kind of herded to go to war without understanding 
the reasons," Greens adviser Jon Tveite said. "There are a lot of people in 
the country who don't think war is best for our country." 

Campus Greens, a group comprised mainly of students in the Green 
Party, was committed to environmentalism, non-violence and social 
justice, according to its Web site, www.greenparty.us.org. 

"The Green Party is against war," said Willie Wake, club president and 
freshman in political science. "A lot of us are pacifists — we want peace. 
(Demonstrating) gives us an outlet to demonstrate our frustrations." 

Oct. 10 and 11, U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, respectively, 
approved a resolution granting Bush authority to wage war against Iraq. 
The legislative bodies asked Bush to seek support from the U.N. Security 
Council and work to build an international coalition before invading. 

Nov. 8, the United Nations approved a mandate to send inspectors to 
Iraq to search for and remove weapons of mass destruction. 

"It feels good, like what we did was vindicated," Wake said. "A lot of 
Americans protested. I just hope the U.S. gives the U.N. a chance to work 
how it's supposed to." 

Tveite said one reason they demonstrated was to question the way 
Bush and the government moved into the situation. 

"They have a program," he said. "If you look at the polls, many 
people have deeply mixed feeling about this. I think some people support 
the president because he is the president. But if you asked them if they 
thought they were in danger from Iraq, they wouldn't agree." 

Campus Greens was not anti-military or angry at the national 
government like some protesters, Tveite said. 

"We're good Americans," he said, "but just don't like the form our 
foreign policy is headed in." 

Although the War Resolution passed Nov. 8 and U.N. inspections 
started Nov. 27, demonstrations continued every Monday and Tuesday. 

"We're exercising our freedoms," Wake said. "Very few citizens go out 
and exercise freedoms they're entitled to besides voting. The harder we 
exercise our freedoms, the harder it will be to try and take them away in 
the future."

competition against more skilled players 
proves positive for teams improvement 

JUNCTION CITY'S POPULATION increased by 12 K- State students 
for three hours Thursday nights when roller hockey went to practice. 

"It's the only place within 100 miles that will have us," Coach Jerry 
Remsbecker said. "We pay $7 a head for three hours of practice, but the 
deal is that it has to be open to the general public, too." 

Inside Skate City, the team practiced on a roller-skating rink against 
other players from Fort Riley and Junction City. 

"It hurts us a lot," Johnna Layer, freshman in business administration, 
said. "We don't play up to anyone else's level, so here a lot of the guys will 
slack off and nobody plays up to their potential. The rink is bigger at the 
games and here it's small. We don't 
have the right boards, so many fac- 
tors hurt us because we don't have 
some things." 

Halfway through the season, 
the team's 3-5-1 record reflected 
its inexperience. 

"The season isn't going as 
well as we'd like it to go," Terence 
Takeguchi, senior in management, 
said. "We lost some key guys last 
year, but we definitely have some 
talented freshmen on the team this 
year. It's taken a lot for this team to 
come together." 

The league's challengers also posted obstacles. 

"Competition is much higher than it's ever been," Remsbecker said. 
"Two years ago when I started, we ran the league. There was not any com- 
petition. Last year there were three competitive teams and this year there 
were only three teams left from last year. All the new teams that came in 
were incredibly good, so every game was a stretch for us." 

Despite difficulties at the league level, the team managed to enjoy its 
Junction City practices and interaction with skaters from Fort Riley. 

"We get out there and have a lot of fun," Layer said. "It's just a lot of 
big guys out there with sticks and the people from Fort Riley put a little bit 
of a twist to it. A lot of them are good. It gets more players for us, because 
some nights we only get 12 players from K- State who show up." 

"In some ways (practicing with Fort Riley skaters) helps us and some 
ways it hurts us. If they don't show up we can actually practice and do 
drills, but it's nice having them there."

Careful detailed planning helps make Fashion Show a popular event, 
mini walk-throughs prepare models, event committee members 



WALKING DOWN THE RUNWAY to the theme of 
"American Graffiti," 12 models participated in the second 
annual Fashion Show at the All -University Open House, 
April 6. 

Planning for the show began December 2001 for 
coordinators Renee Frazey and Jennifer Rogers, seniors in 
apparel marketing and design. 

"When we all got back in January, planning was from 
then until the day of the show," Frazey said. "It took four 
months." 

Three committees worked to find models, select clothing, 
and create the set designs. 

Most of the clothing for the show came from Manhattan 
retail stores, though some of the clothing designs came from 
the apparel marketing and design program. 

"There was an on-call in the (design) program (for 
students to submit designs)," Frazey said. "Some students 
actually had their own designs in the show." 

Amber Fort, head of the set design committee and junior 
in apparel marketing and design, helped brainstorm ideas for 
the look of the show. 



"A backdrop was painted to be a brick wall and we had 
graffiti painted on the wall," Fort said. "We also had trash, 
old tires and trash cans with fake fire in them." 

Creating the set took nearly three weeks for the committee 
to complete, Fort said. 

"It was down to the wire of getting it done, but we got it 
done," Fort said. "It took two nights to paint the brick and 
then we took it to a guy to put the graffiti on, which took one 
week." 

Having goals for the show helped keep everything 
on schedule, but their most important goal was meeting 
deadlines, Rogers said. 

Practices also kept the show on schedule. 

"There were two mini walk-throughs to help the models 
know where to walk," Rogers said. "The morning of the show, 
we had a full dress walk-through, complete with music, 
clothing and staging." 

The event was popular at the open house and the crowd 
proved it, Frazey said. 

"We had two shows lasting 20 minutes each," Frazey said. 
"They were both full to capacity."

Students contribute to museum 
events, fund-raising activities 



FOR ONE EVENING, 1950s decorations and memora- 
bilia and the Student Friends of the Marianna Kistler Beach 
Museum of Art, brought Dorothy, Toto and 30 shoes back 
from the Golden Age to the Manhattan Country Club on 
Nov. 8. 

The Student Friends helped the Friends of the Beach Mu- 
seum of Art acquire funds to defray the expense of publish- 
ing a hardcover book featuring 50 items from the museum's 
permanent collection. 

To raise funds, the Friends and Student Friends orga- 
nized a silent auction of 30 shoes designed by local celeb- 
rities and artists. The theme of the evening, "Beyond Oz 
. . . Dorothy Goes Fab '50s," was incorporated through the 
decorations and music. 

"We serve as the 'go -to' girls," Meredith Moore, sopho- 
more in fine arts, said. "We'll help set up and be there if they 
need anything. As payment, we get to attend for free and rub 
elbows with the fancy folks." 

Student Friends sold raffle tickets, assisted with the silent 
auction and set up and took down decorations. 

"They are always so willing to help," Deloris Bertland, 
fund-raising chairperson, said. "We really couldn't do it 
without them." 

Marie Konarik, junior in geology, said students from all 
majors were welcome to join the group. 

"Art is not the main emphasis of the group," she said. 
"Just because you're not an artist doesn't mean this can't be 
interesting or fun."

Students continue concrete canoe tradition, 
have home advantage for competition 

WITH REMNANTS of cement canoes of yesteryear 
stacked along the wall, the 2003 K- State Concrete Canoe 
Team calculated to ensure the continuation of a strong 
tradition. 

The Concrete Canoe was an experience for the students 
who constructed it piece by piece, said Tricia Petr and Kelly 
Cool, co -chairs and juniors in civil engineering. 

Petr and Cool said organizing the project and raising 
funds were the toughest parts. 

"The construction part is fairly easy," Petr said. "It is just 
getting stuff done on time that is kind of tricky." 

The boat was not held together with typical concrete 
consisting of large rocks and heavy sand. Glass beads and 
other alternative materials, were used to make the canoe 
light enough to float even when filled with water. 

Competing schools offered the project as a class within 
their curriculum, but K- State did not offer the same option. 

"It is all on our own time and money," Cameron 
McGown, senior in civil engineering, said. "We do fund 
raising and we have corporate sponsors along with a few 
local contractors." 

With annual costs of $ 10,000, McGown said sponsorships 
were as vital to the continuation of the program, as all of the 
student hours dedicated to the construction of the canoe. 

"We have to do a paper outlining the process and 
everything," McGown said. "If we totaled up all of our 
hours and what we would get paid if this were an actual job, 
it would be somewhere around $80,000." 

The team of around 30 civil engineering students 
constructed the canoe to participate in a regional 
competition which tests the agility, longevity and speed of 
the canoe. 

The regional competition at Tuttle Creek Dam and 
Reservoir, April 24-26, gave K- State a home advantage. 

"Since I have been at K- State, the University of Nebraska 
has not had a boat that has finished a race," McGown said.

Going the 

Extra Mile 



by Lindsey Jones 



Club yields every effort to help enhance 
community, build personal relationships 



A BLACK TRASH BAG filled with unrecog- 
nizable bits of rubbish sat in the grass alongside 
Kansas Highway 18. 

"Eww, what's that?" Brandon Damas, fresh- 
man in architectural engineering, said, point- 
ing at the lump of trash. "It looks like a dead 
body." 

On Nov. 10, members of the Pre -Veterinary 
Medicine Club gathered at the entrance to the 
Manhattan Regional Airport for a community 
service project cleaning up the highway. 

"We try to do it once a semester," said Jen- 
nifer M. Ramsey, vice president and senior in 
microbiology, "depending on the weather." 

The club members spent approximately 
90 minutes picking up litter along a two -mile 
stretch of highway. 

In addition to highway litter control, the club 
participated in several philanthropic events. 

"We help out at the animal shelter, too," Lar- 
issa Lill, president and junior in life sciences, said. 
"We'll normally bathe and groom the animals to 
get them ready for adoption." 

Lill said they also helped a local wildlife 
refuge and wanted to expand their services. 

"This year we're going to try to do a bake sale, 



but with animal treats," Lill said. "We're always 
trying to come up with new things to do." 

Though community service was a huge part 
of the club's substance, members made time for 
fund-raising, Charissa Wood, sophomore in 
animal sciences and industry, said. 

"We have fund-raising activities where we 
work the football games, clean Bramlage or sell 
T-shirts at the National Pre -Veterinary Medi- 
cine Symposium," Wood said. "All the fund 
raising goes toward sending our members to 
the NPVMS." 

Study time and friendships were important 
to club members, Wood said. 

"We do things as a club so that people can get 
to know each other," she said. "We have review 
sessions where people in the club can review for 
a test and study. We're a support group for each 
other. You make friends through the club." 

Lill said projects like the highway clean-up 
were an important part of the club. 

"Working within the community, helping the 
environment and all of those things fit in with 
animals and led back to veterinary medicine," 
Lill said. "It's just a way to help the community 
and keep it clean."

Engineering honor society members tackle annual 
project, freshen K- Hill with new coat of paint 



ATOP K-HILL, with an approximately 70 -degree drop 
below, 30 Tau Beta Pi members received one piece of advice 
from the club's vice president. 

"No one gets on the letters," Benjamin Sommers, senior 
in mechanical engineering, said pointing down the hill. "If 
you do, you'll be down there and it'll be really, really bad." 

For the past 30 years, Tau Beta Pi members cleaned up 
and painted K-Hill on the southeast end of Manhattan. 

"As an engineering honor society we're in a position 
where we want to do some community service," Sommers 




STEPHEN MCCLURG, junior

ing, dumps whitewash 
on the letters. The group

cement and lime with 700 
gallons of water.

said. "We are somewhat of a service -oriented honor society 
and we're just trying to promote community service. It's 
something relatively simple, it's nothing big necessarily, it 
just makes KS hill look better and that makes Manhattan 
look better." 

The four-hour process began with members picking 
up trash to put in large black bags that were later picked 
up by the county. Then a human chain passed buckets of 
whitewash to coat the letters. 

Some surprising items were found along the way 
including an engine, table and a couch. 

"It's quite a bit of work," Matthew McGuire, junior in 
chemical engineering, said. "There is a lot of trash out here 
and there's all kinds of stuff. It's more work than I expected, 
I just took a motor up." 

The K on K-Hill was constructed in 1921 by the College 
of Engineering. The S was added nine years later. 

The day provided a chance for new and veteran club 
members to bond and work together, said Clinton Williams, 
president and senior in computer engineering. 

"You watch some people bond and get to know each 
other the rest of their time here," he said. "It's kind of a 
unique society because it's not from one discipline, it's the 
entire College of Engineering that's allowed in here as long 
as they're engineers. You meet people that you wouldn't 
normally meet and it's nice in that aspect."

COMING OFF a 25-28 rebuilding year in 2001, the 2002 
j^jjdfcat baseball team accomplished team goals and made 
its first-ever Big 12 Tournament appearance. 

"We did pretty good considering it was our first Big 12 
and we tied for 5th," Brad Anzman, freshman outfielder, 
said. "The Big 12 is America's baseball powerhouse and we 
had some big wins against some good teams and we sur- 
prised a lot of people." 

The team lost in postseason play to Texas Tech, 5-4, but 
beat Baylor, 6-2, and Texas Tech, 7-6. The Cats' season ended 
after their second tournament loss, falling to Nebraska, 8-7. 

"We were pretty confident in what we could do," An- 
zman said. "We knew it was double elimination and we 
didn't dwell on the first loss. We woke up the next day with a 
new attitude and decided we needed to get better." 

The Wildcats came to camp in fall 2001, with 16 new 
players and 13 returning members, not really knowing what 
to expect, Coach Mike Clark said.

HITTING THE DIRT, junior 
second baseman Brandon 
Taylor dives for the ball 
during a game against 
Western Illinois at Frank 
Myers Field. The Wildcats 
won the series 3-1. At the 
beginning of the season, 
Taylor was not the only 
second baseman. He split 
second base duties with 
six other players until 
Coach Mike Clark was able 
to find the best combina- 
tion on the field. "Eventu- 
ally we found the right 
people," he said. "When 
we did, we took off. At the 
end of the season we were 
one of the better teams 
in the Midwest and in the 
Big 12." — Photo by

Unexpected Success 

continued from page 228 

"Unfortunately we lost some games we shouldn't have," 
Clark said, "but we had to do that in order to find who was 
going to fit into what role and who was going to start." 

Clark said that rivalry within his ball club helped them 
stay competitive. 

"We had good competition within the team and that 
was positive," Clark said. "It made everybody on the team 
become better and we finally found the right combination." 

Another feat for the team included their 30 -win season, 
the first in five years. 

"We came to every game like we were going to win," Pat 
Maloney, junior outfielder, said. "We stepped on the field 
and we felt like we were even with every team we played." 

Individual efforts were recognized with six Academic 
All-Big 12, five Phillips 66 Big 12 Pitcher or Player of the 
Week, and six All-Big 12 Conference honors. 

Clark said the team's success resulted from players' 
actions speaking louder than their words. 

"Talk is one thing, but going out and doing it is 
completely different," Clark said. "We went out in the last 
part of the season and did it. It didn't matter who we were 
playing, where we were playing, the guys really walked the 
walk and didn't do too much talking. They let their bats and 
gloves do the talking." 

Clark became the first coach in K- State sports to post 
400 wins - ending the season with 420 - adding to team and 
individual accolades.

LOVE ALL 

seniors offer leadership

COMPETING IN SINGLES, 
freshman Maria Rosen- 
berg returns a forehand 
to her Baylor opponent, 
Daria Potapova. Rosen- 
berg lost the match in 
straight sets, 6-2, 6-2. 
This was her first loss of 
the season. The team 
found leaders in seniors 
Alena Jecminkova and 
Kathy Chuda. "They 
gave us a lot of confi-

Andrea Cooper said. 
"We could trust them 
to play well. They were 
great leaders and had 
a big influence on all of 
us. They worked hard 
for us."

INDIVIDUAL SUCCESSES came about in 2002. 

Alena Jecminkova and Kathy Chuda saw their careers 
dressed in purple come to an end. 

"Together they have probably won over 200 matches," Coach 
Steve Bietau said. "They bring a good level of tennis to the program 
and have developed into good ambassadors for the team." 

Jecminkova, 95th in the Intercollegiate Tennis Associa- 
tion rankings, ended collegiate play with a 6-3, 6-2 loss in 
the second round of the NCAA singles tournament to No. 24 
Alice Pirsu of Pennsylvania. 

Jecminkova finished with an 18-13 record and a career 
mark of 65-48. She was only the second K- Stater to win an 
NCAA singles tournament match in the program's history. 

She was surprised to make it to the tournament, so her 
good performance also came as a shock, she said. 

Jecminkova also garnered another honor when she was 
named Big 12 Tennis Player of the Year. 

Chuda started at K- State as the No. 3 singles player in the 
program and left in the No. 2 spot, behind Jecminkova. 

"That is personally gratifying," Chuda said. "I always 
wanted to play at a higher number because I was winning 
at the other spots but the other girls were winning too. I 
wanted to have a good finish to my career." 

Chuda said she does not regret making the trip to Man- 
hattan from the Czech Republic. 

"I have learned so much about other cultures," she said. 
"I have enjoyed being a member of a team." 

Both team members will be missed and the squad will 
need to find replacements for their captains, Bietau said. 

"They are leaders," he said. "It is important for those who have 
been in the program to set an example for others, and they have done 
a good job this year. They leave a big hole to fill for next year." 

The tennis team concluded the 2002 spring season with a loss 
in the quarterfinals of the Big 12 Tournament to the No. 3 seeded 
Kansas Jayhawks, 4-1. The sixth seeded Cats' record fell to 12-8 
on the season, finishing the year No. 53 in the ITA rankings. 

Junior Petra Sedlmajerova was only the second Wildcat ever

BEHIND COACH CLIFF ROVELTO'S DESK hung a poster of track 
great Steve Prefontaine. The black and white poster read, "To give anything 
less than your best is to sacrifice the gift." 

Pre s quote was one of Rovelto's favorites for life and track and field, he said. 

"I've just always admired kids who have been willing to put a lot 
into whatever it is they're doing," Rovelto said. "When people don't take 
advantage of what's there for them, I don't care if they end up winning, I 
still don't think that they've won." 

Men's track finished their season fifth in the Big 12, after a steady 
climb, matching last year's finish and bettering 2000's by four places. 

Senior Terrence Newman won his second Big 12 title in the 100-meter run. 

"It's tough for a guy to go out and do that because there is not much 
difference between those guys at the top," Rovelto said. "It's a very 
competitive sprint conference. He not only won, there was no question in 
anyone's mind that when the race was over he was the best guy." 

Sophomore thrower Craig Smith finished 12th in the javelin throw at 
the Big 12 meet with a team, and season, and best throw of 191-11. 

"Craig has made amazing progress this year, adding some 46 feet 
to last year's personal best," Throwers' Coach Steve Fritz said. "He just 
seems to continue to get better and better physically each week." 

Sophomore distance runner Joseph Lee also made a name for himself. 

"Joseph's race at the Nebraska meet was a nice breakthrough performance," 
Mike Smith, middle distance coach said. "The ease with which he ran was also 
an indication that he can run faster." 

Lee finished second in the 800-meter in the Big 12 Championships. 

"It's a very good team and they've made really good progress over the 
past couple of years," Rovelto said. "We feel like we've got a good team and 
what they did over the past couple of years is what got us to this point."

SUB-PAR ROUNDS 

highs and lows costly in women's season 

by Andi Rice 

ONE CONSISTENCY defined the spring 2002 women's 
golf team: constant change. 

"We were too inconsistent," Coach Kristi Knight said. 
"Our bad rounds were really bad. Our good rounds were 
good, but when we had a bad day it was terrible." 

The team started with two appearances that were less 
than pleasing, Knight said. 

"We had two tournaments, and they were both awful in 
a word," she said. "We were throwing away too many shots. 
We were not getting it in the hole." 

Following a 13th -place finish at the Texas A&M Verizon 
Tournament in Byran, Texas, the Wildcats captured their 
first tournament title in six years at the Mountain View 
Collegiate Tournament in Tucson, Ariz. 

"I was very proud of them for winning," Knight said. "It 
was an enormous accomplishment. We not only won, but we 
beat the No. 9 team (Arizona State) in the country." 

Through the fall and spring, sophomore Christine Boucher 
posted nine top -10 finishes in 12 tournaments. She also placed 
second in the Big 12 Tournament, shooting 224, the lowest 54- 
hole score by a Wildcat in conference championship history. The 
performance earned her All- Conference Second Team honors. 

"I played really well," Boucher said. "I just focused on 
what I needed to do and my game, and let it happen." 

On May 9, the team started as the 18th seed in the NCAA 
Central Regional Tournament in West Lansing, Mich., 
and finished 15th to end the season on a positive note. But 
Knight said improvements needed to be made. 

"We have to learn from our bad rounds," Knight said. 
"We could have been a lot better. We're pretty good, but we 
can be a hell of a lot better."

IMPROVEMENT. 

With one word Coach Tim Norris summed up his team's 
spring season after a 32 -position jump from No. 106 to 74 
in the Sagarin rankings and a 7th-place finish in the Big 12 
Tournament. 

"We made a pretty big jump," Norris said, "but it's kind 
of like a diet. The first couple of pounds come off pretty quick 
but after that you really have to work at it. We played pretty 
well at the tournament. It was an improvement from last year 
when we were 8th place. It was a good end to the year." 

Junior Aaron Watkins and sophomore A.J. Elgert led 
the Wildcats through the season. Watkins ended his year 
with a three-day score of 212, placing sixth in the Big 12 
Tournament, the highest ranking in K- State history. 

He was also the only Wildcat to qualify for the NCAA 
Central Regional Tournament. Elgert played in all seven 
tournaments for the Wildcats and placed in the top 20 five 
times. 

"We pushed each other," Elgert said. "We're good friends, 
but nobody wants to lose. We help each other out, but we 
always have our competitive nature." 

The Wildcats ended the spring season with six top- 10 
finishes. 

Norris said in his six years as coach, this year's was the 
toughest schedule as far as quality and strength for the 
Wildcats. 

"Our tournament schedule was tougher because we had 
more tournaments and it was something we weren't used to," 
Watkins said. "The traveling was wearing us out, but we had a 
positive team and no one was ever negative. There was always 
someone there to pick you up and get you going again."

Former legends return as 6 former Wildcat standouts 



HONORED 



AS THE LIGHTS REFLECTED off the field and the 
scoreboard displayed the 48-3 outcome of the game against 
Western Kentucky, fans hurried from KSU Stadium. 

But for 31 -year- old Jaime Mendez the evening ended too 
soon. 

Mendez stood in the stands, looked onto the field, then 
turned his gaze to one of the names that would be on the east 
wall of the stadium as long as the arena stood. 

It was his name. 

Mendez, a 1994 K- State graduate and former safety for the 
Wildcats during the 1990-93 seasons, said he couldn't express 
his feelings as he peered at his name. 

"It just feels like they've got the wrong guy," Mendez said. 
"I can't describe or explain the feeling of seeing my name up 
there, I just wish that everyone could feel like I feel now. It 
is amazing." 

The night before the game Mendez and five other former 
K- State players - Veryl Switzer, Lynn Dickey, Steve Grogan, 
Gary Spani and Sean Snyder - were inducted into the Football 
Ring of Honor for distinctions on and off the field and 
accomplishments during their time at K- State. 

During the ceremony others involved in building the 
football program, including former Athletic Directors Dick 
Towers and Ernie Barrett and former Coach Vince Gibson, 
introduced each player. K- State President Jon Wefald and Vice 
President Bob Krause also presented awards. 

"This is just another part of the story," Krause said. "The 
ring of honor is another chapter in the story, and I think it 
signals determination that we have a tradition, and we are in 



for their on, off field successes 

by Andi Rice 

a position to finally honor those who have helped make this 
tradition possible." 

As the players were introduced, highlights and 
achievements of their careers were shown in a video clip. 

Each inductee mentioned what the football team had 
done for them and told of the family it had created for them 
to return to. 

"Whether you played in the '50s, '70s, or '90s it doesn't 
matter," Dickey said. "We're all a family. When I come back 
here and see the purple people, or wherever I see them- all 
over the state, all over the country- it's a close-knit group. I'm 
proud to be a purple person and I always will be." 

Head coach Bill Snyder ended the ceremony telling the 
inductees he was proud to have them as a part of his family. 

"Millions and millions and millions of people are going 
to have the opportunity to walk into that stadium, care about 
Kansas State and look up and say 'you know those guys are 
a big part of our family,'" Snyder said. "It's special for them, 
and rightfully so. What a neat thing to have your name there 
in perpetuity, I mean, it is there forever." 

Before leaving the stadium, Mendez walked onto the field 
paused for a moment and took one last look at his name. 

"The last things I thought about before leaving the stadium 
were all the old memories," Mendez said. "I thought about 
everything- the bowl victory, me becoming an All- American, 
thinking about me almost going to Ohio State to begin with. 
If I would have made one decision different it wouldn't have 
brought me here and I wouldn't have had my name up there 
on that wall."

Ordinary Day 



Rigorous schedule typical for re 



u bni! 



IF ASKED AT 6 A.M. if he was living his dream life, 
freshman Brandon Archer would say, "Hell no." 

In his first year of Division I football, he had to do 
everything the starters did, but he would not receive any 
recognition on game days due to his classification as a red 
shirt. 

After three-and-one-half hours of sleep the night before, 
Archer stood in the weight room at the Vanier Football 
Complex for his daily weight lifting routine. 

"I picture myself kind of like a machine," Archer said. 
"I'm programmed to do all of this stuff, and I just do it. It's 
hard with limiting sleep. I have to manage my time to have 
energy." 

Following weights, Archer returned to Haymaker 538 
to finish folding his laundry and take a quick shower before 
heading to his first class. 

"I didn't have any other time today that I could do my 
laundry," Archer said. "So, I had to wash it last night at 2:30 
in the morning." 

In freshman seminar class at 8:30 a.m., Archer's 
eyes drooped with exhaustion, along with several of his 
teammates who were in the class. 

As the guest speaker encouraged the class to participate 
in a discussion, the men made football analogies so they 
could bring a football mind set to the subject. When the 
class was over, Archer slowly packed up his bag and walked 
back to his room. 

"During the day," Archer said, "every break I have I 
usually try to get back to the room and get some sleep or 
something to eat." 

As 10:30 a.m. rolled around, Archer began another 
segment of classes that lasted until 1:30 p.m., and then he 
went back to Vanier. 

"It's a love-hate relationship," Archer said. "You can 
talk about how much you don't want to do things, but you 
just love being on the field. Saturday game days are a real 
reassurance of why you're doing everything. You get the

reassurance of 'this is what I'm here for.'" 

At Vanier, Archer sat through a linebacker meeting, 
watching film and discussing the day's and week's goals. 
Bret Bielema, co- defensive coordinator and linebackers' 
coach, said he was pleased with Archer's progress. 

"Brandon is a very focused young man," Bielema said. 
"He'll know what he needs to do, how it needs to be done, 
and he'll know the right way about going about it. He is in a 
situation where he immerses himself into the task at hand. 
Whatever he does, he throws himself into it full willing. He 
knows how to get by and do things the right way." 
Practice lasted from 4 until 6:30 p.m. 
"We try not to get discouraged," said freshman Sean 
Lowe, Archer's roommate and teammate. "We practice 
just as hard as everyone else, but 
we just don't get to play on game 
days." 

After practice, Archer found 
a ride to the Derby Dining Center 
where he ate in the training line 
for athletes. 

Then it was study time. 
"I'm required to put in six 
hours each week at the complex," 
Archer said. "Outside of that, I 
study some at Hale and in my room." 

By 10 p.m., his day started to wind down and he talked 
to family and friends in Minnesota for what he hoped would 
be a little bit, although it usually ended up being a long time, 
he said. 

His day ended unusually early at 1 1 p.m. He prepared for 
bed and checked his alarm to make sure it was set for 
5:30 a.m. 

The machine would be reprogrammed the next day to 
start its routine again. 

"It's another phase in my life," Archer said. "I just know 
this is what I need to do. You can complain and argue and 
fuss about all of it, but there is no reason to. I'm happy."

"It put young people in a position that at 
no time, since I've been here, they have been 
in," Snyder said. "At no time have they ever 
had success and met with what some might call 
failure — I wouldn't, but some might — and 
then repositioned themselves with courage and 
determination and come back to gain the same 
status they had experienced before." 

Going into the season, senior Marc Dunn 
and junior Ell Roberson competed for the 
quarterback position. Snyder did not announce 
the starter until four days before the season 
opener against Western Kentucky — Dunn 
would get the assignment. Dunn started the 
first four non- conference games, but continued 
to split duties with Roberson. 

"People are going to say that you need to have 

a quarterback to lead this team, and that's true 

in certain circumstances," offensive coordinator 

Ron Hudson said. "But if we're going well and

to Oklahoma and then came back and that is when we started 
to move in the wrong direction. We understood why that 
happened and we weren't going to go in the same direction 
as the previous team." 

Following the Colorado game, Roberson continued 
starting and the team bounced back with a 44-9 win against 
Oklahoma State but received another devastating blow with a 
three-point loss to Texas at home after a missed 
field goal attempt with 7 seconds on the clock. 

"There 're a lot of different things that people 
can point their finger at," senior cornerback 
Terence Newman said. "(Jared Brite, kicker,) is 
just the one because in the waning seconds of the 
game he was out there to tie the game up. I think 
people overlook that. A lot of different people 
made a lot of different mistakes. We just want to 
finish out the season with five wins." 

The team reached the goal with record- 
breaking games. 

The Wildcats traveled to Lawrence for the 
100th Sunflower Showdown and scored the 
highest blowout in the history of the series, 
64-0. 

"I didn't think it would be this easy," 
Roberson said. "But if you have an offense that's 
clicking and a defense that can shut them out, it 
can happen." 

Returning home, the Cats rolled over then 
No. 21 Iowa State, 58-7, and handed Nebraska 
a 49-13 loss. 

"I've been around here too long and I know what kind 
of football program they (Cornhuskers) have," Snyder said. 
"Because of that, it does make it a little extra nice to win that 
ballgame. I'm not calloused to that at all. I do want our players 
and all to understand that we have been there before and done 
that before, but that doesn't take away the fact that it is a nice 
win — a very nice win." 

To finish the season, the Wildcats went on the road to 
Missouri and ended with a 38-0 win, their third shutout of 
the season. 

At the close of the regular season, K- State was ranked 
6th in the nation. Though they were only seven points from 
an undefeated season, things happened for a reason Snyder 
said.

"That's like looking back and saying, 'If I'd gotten a medical degree, 
then I'd be a doctor,'" Snyder said. "There's nothing you can do about it. 
If you're looking back you're looking the wrong direction." 

The Cats accepted an invitation to the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl to play 
unranked Arizona State in what was one of the toughest games all season, 
senior defensive tackle Tank Reese said. 

The 34-27 victory gave the Cats their 11th win, making K- State the 
only school in Division I college football to record 11 or more wins five 
of the past six years. 

"It really is a special achievement for these young people, but also for 
those who have built the foundation, going back as far as 1989, 1990," Snyder 
said. "It's pretty special for those guys who have participated during those 
11 -win seasons, a lot of them not here right now. It is very special to do 
something for the first time in history. It's worth note and I am proud of 
the people who had something to do with it."

CLOSE CALL 

Cats face prepared Sun Devils 

by Sean Purcell and Asicfi Rice 

IT HAD BEEN three years since K- State spent Christmas 
in sunny California and 13 years since the Wildcats faced 
Arizona State University. The 6th -ranked Wildcats accepted 
a bid to the 25th Pacific Life Holiday Bowl in San Diego, 
Dec. 27. 

Odds makers gave K- State an 18 -point spread against 
the unranked Sun Devils. It was the largest spread of all 28 
bowl games, evidence that the Wildcats would tally their 1 1th 
season win in California. 

Those familiar with Holiday Bowl history said victory 
would not be as simple. A margin of less than eight points 
decided 15 of the 25 contests, including K- State's 36-27 victory 
over Arizona State. 

"Arizona State is a great team — one of the hardest teams 
we have faced all year," senior defensive tackle Tank Reese 
said. "We were down, but we stayed focused on the task at 
hand." 

After early scoring by the Sun Devils, the Wildcats trailed 
at halftime, 14 -20. K- State became the sixth consecutive team 
to trail at halftime and then win the contest. 

"I think we came out and laid an egg in the first half," 
senior cornerback Terence Newman said. "We got down but 
we played through it. That's what the No. 6 team in the nation 
is supposed to do in the second half." 

Following a scoreless third quarter, quarterback Ell 
Roberson sparked the team with a 2 -yard dive into the end 
zone to tie the game at 20 — a low snap cost the Cats their 
extra point. Arizona State scored one more time to go up 
27-20. 

Roberson continued to lead the team with a 1 -yard sneak 
to tie the game 27-27 followed by a 10 -yard pass to Derrick 
Evans to capture the win, 34-27. 

"Take away the first two quarters, this is the best (bowl 
at K- State)," Coach Bill Snyder said. "I probably contributed 
to the slow start. I may have worked these guys too hard 
and might have expected some things that didn't need to be 
expected — and certainly didn't have them prepared to do 
some of the things we needed to do. 

"There was another contributing factor and it was the 
fact that Arizona State is a whale of a football team. Their 
preparation for us was as good as anybody's at any time on 
both sides of the ball."

DOWN, Ell Roberson leans 
forward behind sopho- 
more right guard Mike 
Johnson's block for a first 
down during the fourth 
quarter of the Pacific Life 
Holiday Bowl, Dec. 27. 
Roberson was named 
the offensive MVP of the 
game. "We got off to a 
shaking start," Roberson 
said. "We kept plugging 
away. I told our guys, our 
offensive line and running 
backs and receivers that if 
we keep plugging away, 
good things will happen. 
It happened for us."

IN THE PRACTICE GYM of Ahearn Field House, a black 
curtain sectioned off a portion of the room containing 15 
chairs. For this occasion, three more were raised on a platform 
with a table. The table had three nameplates: Lisa Martin, 
middle blocker; Lauren Goehring, middle blocker, and Suzie 
Fritz, head coach. 

Fourteen minutes after the close of the final match in the 
second round of the NCAA tournament between K- State and 
Washington State University, the three walked in the room. 
All were fighting tears. 

Forty- five seconds passed while Fritz wiped tears, gained 
her composure and spoke her first words. Her team's 21-8 
— scratch that — now 21-9, season had just ended. 

"It's not like we're curing cancer," Fritz said. "But you 
invest so much time and energy into trying to get as good 
as you can get. I was frustrated. I was disappointed. I was 
angry. Those were my initial thoughts, but having a few days 
to reflect, it gets easier as the days go by." 

With the departure of two-time All-American Liz 
Wegner, fellow all -conference selection Lisa Mimick, and 
Jayne Christen, the team knew they were going into the season 
young and inexperienced, but they had no doubts, sophomore 
Gabby Guerre said. 

"The beginning was rocky," she said. "Our path in the 
season hadn't been quite determined yet. We were still looking 
for those key elements, and I don't think we found them until 
conference (play)." 

Wildcats posted a 4-4 preseason record, including three 
straight losses at the USF Adidas Invitational in Tampa, Fla.

"We didn't have enough technique yet to really be a stable 
team that we became at the end of the season," Guerre said. "A 
loss is disappointing, but you learn more from a loss than you 
do a win. At the beginning of the season a loss doesn't really 
matter, I mean it matters, but it teaches you more." 

Opening regular season play, Nebraska defeated the team 
at Ahearn Field House, and then went on the road to pick up 
wins at Baylor and Iowa State before returning home to drop 
a three-straight-game match to Texas. 

After the loss to Texas, the Wildcats began a 13-game 
winning streak. 

"The team started coming together at Baylor," Goehring 
said. "It wasn't consistent, but after the Texas loss we decided 
that we couldn't screw around anymore and so that was the 
point it progressively got stronger. We just took 
one game at a time. We played each opponent as 
they appeared in our schedule." 

K- State ended the 1 3 - game run with another 
loss to Texas, 1-3. The Cats finished the season 
with a win over Kansas and a loss to Nebraska. 
"You start to understand that it's not always 
going to go your way," Fritz said. "Sometimes 
you can give your very best effort and it doesn't 
necessarily mean you're going to win. Our last 
loss of the year is a perfect example of that. 

"Late in the year they became an incredibly 
composed team, it wasn't a team full of seniors, 
but they started playing like they had been there 
before and that was kind of a turning point for 
us." 

The team reaped the benefits of their 20-8 
season when the NCAA announced that K- State 
would be one of 16 host sites for the first two rounds of the 
national tournament. 

In round one, the Cats beat non-ranked Michigan in 
three games, 30-26, 30-25, 35-33 and advanced to round

"It doesn't make you feel better, but it does. What happens,

REBEKAH GREEN, junior thrower on the women's 
track team, kept repeating the word "we" when talking 
about attending volleyball games in Ahearn Field House. 

An athlete herself, Green knew the hard work it took to 
compete at the Division I level in any sport. 

"They're not necessarily teammates, but they are fellow 
athletes," Green said. "The volleyball girls, we see them day 
in and day out. They're working hard and need our support, 
too." 

If fellow athletes did not fill the seats in Ahearn, then 
odds were no one else would, said 
Jose Carvajal, senior hurdler and 
sprinter on the men's track team. 

"We interact with the girls ev- 
ery day at Ahearn and in the train- 
ing room," he said. "If it doesn't 
start with us, their athlete friends, 
then who is going to attend?" 

Even with all the practice hours 
spent in Ahearn, Carvajal said fin- 
ishing practice and going to games 
was not a hassle, especially for cer- 
tain members of the team. 

"Basically, it's just our relation-

Mortimer ends historic career with 4th All-America 



RELIABLE RUN 



SOMETIME BETWEEN lacing up their spikes and start- 
ing the meet, members of the women's cross country team 
shared advice with each other. 

The veteran and rookie runners on the 2002 squad knew 
the task they had to do. 

"Something we always said before our meets was 'suck it 
up,' just to remind us that we're gonna hurt but it's not unique 
to anyone else," sophomore Trisha Culbertson said. "We'll be 
good in the end. The pain will be behind you and then you'll 
just have the memories. The pain is temporary." 

After a seventh-place finish at the Big 12 Championship 
and the same result at the Midwest regional meet, the team 
had a lone representative at the 2002 NCAA Cross Country 
Championships. 

Senior Amy Mortimer carried the weight of the 2002 
season and the pressure to earn a fourth All-America honor, 
as she made her way to Terre Haute, Ind. 

As 254 of the nation's elite runners approached the start- 
ing line at the Wabash Family Sports Center at Indiana State 
University, Mortimer said she was nervous. 

"It's kind of scary lining up on the line with all these girls 
in really good shape," Mortimer said. "You realize this is the 
end of the season." 

In one of the fastest fields in the history of the meet, 
Mortimer's run of 20:37.4 on the 6,000-meter course gave 
her a 43rd-place finish and the All-America. 

Mortimer was the first 4-time All-American in K- State 
cross country history. 

"Amy has proven that she is a very talented runner and a 
great competitor," head coach Randy Cole said. "Her athletic 




returning runners mesh, grow as a team 

by Nabil Shaheen 

and academic honors over the last four years are outstanding 
and speak volumes about her dedication and hard work at 
Kansas State." 

As one of the most talked about runners in K- State his- 
tory wrapped up her cross country 
career she said the most memorable 
part of the season was seeing the 
team's growth. 

"At the beginning of the year, 
there were so many new girls," 
Mortimer said of the team, which 
included her younger sister, Erin. 
"We had some adjustment periods, 
but by end of the year we got really 
close. It was nice to see from first 
day of practice to end of the season 
how everyone grew closer and came 
together as a team — that was the 
highlight of my season, watching 
that." 

Although the team's inexperi- 
ence may have been a factor, the 
young runners were a benefit during practices, 
Culbertson said.

REBUILD 

inexperience proves costly 

by Nabil Shaheen 

»UAD had no 
expectations for their season. 

The predominantly underclassman team did not know 
what to expect of racing at the Division I level, or at K- State 
cross country standards. 

"They are a pretty young bunch and had 
some good times," Coach Randy Cole said. 
"They gained some experience this season, so 
we just need to keep working on our training to 
get better for next year." 

Freshman Drew Tonniges was among the 
top K- State finishers at every meet and was the 
third-fastest freshman in the Big 12. 

"This year I really didn't have anything in 
mind of what I wanted to do," Tonniges said. 
"I was just trying to gain experience. I had no 
expectations. In high school it's (the race) 5,000 
meters, in college it's 10,000. So I've never really 
run that far in a race. I'd come through my 
halfway faster than what I ever ran in high school 
and that was just halfway finished." 

Finishing 10th at the Big 12 Cross Country 
Championships and 16th at the Midwest 
Region Cross Country Championships, the team reflected 
its inexperience, Tonniges said. 

"We really didn't perform as well in the bigger meets and 
that was an indication of not ever being there, the lack of 
atmosphere," he said. "Next year, with everyone coming back, 
we'll step it up in the big meets." 

Sharing his racing wisdom, the only returning letter 
winner, sophomore Mathew Chesang, said he had a lot to do 
teaching the team and himself. 

"(Inexperience) is a clear indication, me included, that 
there is still plenty of room to gain experience," Chesang said. 
"Being a returning runner I had to show a good example to 
the rest by sharing with them the knowledge I had and also 
the spirit of working hard which pays off at the end."

Novices build foundation for program 



THE FALL SCHEDULE for women's crew marked a 
transition. Execution and injuries were a problem for the 
varsity, but the novices were the strongest they had been in 
years, Coach Jenny Hale said. 

"We haven't had particularly strong novice crews the past 
three years," she said. "We've had a coaching staff change 
— we've focused both the novice coach and the assistant 
coach on the novice group this fall — so they've gotten a lot 
of one-on-one and gotten a lot of attention. 

"We've standardized the program and our expectations 
for the group have been realigned so they are in line with the 
varsity." 

With the departure of Kevin Harris and Sandra Chu, 
who received head coaching positions elsewhere during the 
summer, the team gained assistant coach, Paula Donald, a 
Colorado State University graduate, and novice coach, James 
Rawson, from Gonzaga University 

"They are definitely a great group," Rawson said. "I tell 
them to do the work, and they do exactly what needs to be 
done. They are really dedicated." 

Even with a strong novice crew, the varsity eight had 
problems. Technically, the crew rowed better than any other 
year but just didn't execute during the races, Hale said. 

"They have not had a particularly strong season," she said. 
"Execution is where we need to step up and make sure they are 
able to put out there what they are capable of doing." 

Injuries also challenged the team. Only one person in the 
varsity eight's boat remained unhurt. 

"We've had injuries in and out," senior Alyssa Adams 
said. "That's frustrating because we want the best people in 
the boat. We want to be able to be fast because we know we 
can beat a lot of the teams we're up against." 

Despite the problems, the team ended the season 
sweeping KU in the Sunflower Showdown, winning five of 
five races. It was the first time in the six-year history of the 
series that either team had a clean sweep. 

"We had a great team performance and that's what we 
need — not an individual boat performance, but a team 
performance," Hale said. "I think everybody stepped up and 
did their part. The execution was well done, and I was so 
happy for the athletes to enjoy the feeling of sweeping this 
regatta."

Dedicated 



ien rowers' commitment pays off 

EACH MORNING at 5:30, the men's rowing team made 
its way to Tuttle Creek Dam and Reservoir for practice. 

Members spent a required 10 hours per week working out 
as a team in addition to optional workouts. 

Though the time put in by the rowing team went 
unnoticed by most students, the rowers still got up every 
morning to practice, Pyle said. 

"I talk with a lot of people around campus and they don't 
even know we have a men's rowing team," Pyle said, "but 
within the rowing community, we are recognized. When we 
walk around at the regattas, other teams know who we are." 

Most of the rowers were involved in other sports in high 
school and wanted to stay in shape, senior Chris Riffel said. 

"It is a great sport to do just because it keeps you in 
excellent shape," he said. "The sports I did in high school, 
cross country and swimming, carry over to rowing." 

Components of other sports related as well. 

"The competitiveness and teamwork you learn in any 
other sport carries over to rowing without a doubt," Pyle 
said. "Plus, the conditioning is relatively the same." 

The team competed in three regattas during the fall and 
five in the spring, traveling to Wisconsin, Tennessee and 
Pennsylvania. 

Money for the supplies and travel came from the Student 
Government Association, donations and personal funds. 
Because the team was a club sport, it received no money 
from Intercollegiate Athletics. 

K- State alumnus George Breidenthal, former manager 
of the men's rowing team, made a $500,000 gift to the KSU 
Foundation to help fund a new boathouse for the K- State 
rowing program. The donation took a big chunk out of the 
money needed to complete the $l.l-million boathouse. 

"Even though I'm not going to see it done, it makes me 
excited for the future," Riffel said. "To see someone give that 
much money makes it easier for me to give back."

Coming Up Strong

TWO YEARS. Two freshmen. Two conference titles. 

Freshman Kyle Lancaster made 2003 the second straight 
year that a Wildcat newcomer won an event at the Big 12 
Conference Indoor Championships. 

In one of the most competitive events of the day, Lancaster 
cleared 7-1.75 in the high jump, a career best, to help his team 
to an 86 -point, third-place finish. 

"In the Big 12, for freshmen to win an event is a pretty 
significant accomplishment," Coach Cliff Rovelto said. "The 
quality in most events is pretty deep. It is a significant accom- 
plishment and what it says to me is that these freshmen win- 
ning are pretty darn good." 

The men's team finished its season tied for 45th at the 
NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark. Junior 
Joseph Lee was the top finisher for the Cats taking fifth place 
in the 800-meter run. 

"You have to acknowledge our coaching staff," sophomore 
Richard Warren said. "We have one of the best coaching staffs 
in the country. 

"We have a lot of post- collegiate athletes training here and 
just working with the athletes on the men's and women's side. 
They've been in big meets, they can prep us on what to expect 
and just the dedication of the athletes, men and women, work 
extremely hard. All those things combined make the track 
programs here extremely successful."

SENIOR AMY MORITMER knew what it was like coming 
in second place in the mile -run at the Big 12 meet. She knew 
what it was like coming in third and fourth, too. On March 1, 
running a race she described as "ridiculously slow," Mortimer 
won the mile in her final indoor conference meet. 

"Throughout her career, Amy has always performed at a 
pretty high level," Coach Cliff Rovelto said. "We, as much as 
others, have kind of taken it for granted, but the significance 
of what she has done is huge." 

At the Big 12, where the women took third with 87 points, 
the 4x400 relay team of freshmen Ashley Stevens and Shunte 
Thomas, sophomore Samantha Murillo and senior Nicole 
Grose was within 1.16 seconds of a new school record. 

The K- State women ended the year in 27th place in the 
NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark. 

Mortimer earned All-American status, placing sixth in 
the 3,000 -meter run. She received the honor 11 times in her 
career at K- State. Sophomore Chaytan Hill placed 10th in the 
triple jump and junior Morgan High placed sixth in the high 
jump, also earning All-American status. 

"People are coming to practice everyday and taking care 
of business and being supportive of each other," Mortimer 
said. "Everyone tries as hard as they can, it's not like you can 
find some little extra, everyone already tries to put that extra 
out there no matter what."

GREATS RETURN 



LIKE ANY PREGAME RITUAL, the men's basketball 
team warmed up on the court, but the atmosphere was dif- 
ferent March 1. 

On the upper level of Bramlage Coliseum, fans lined up for 
autographs from the team, but not the one warming up on the 
court. They wanted autographs from the All- Century team 
composed of 13 standouts from K- State's basketball history. 

"You look up in the crowd and see all those guys who make 
up Kansas State basketball," senior forward Matt Siebrandt 
said. "That's the tradition and you see it and it made the arena 
a lot more special. I wanted to play really well, just to show 
them we're trying to turn it around and that we're trying to 
do what they did." 

The season marked the 100th year of men's Wildcat 
basketball. 

"A lot of the students don't realize that we used to be a 
basketball powerhouse here." Siebrandt said. "(The students) 
want to get it back and we want to get it back and I think 
that linking (the program) to the past helps you to get there 
sooner." 

The team, voted on by fans, comprised 10 players and three 
coaches, including Ernie Barrett, Jack Parr, Bob Boozer, Lon 
Kruger, Chuckie Williams, Mike Evans, Rolando Blackman, 
Ed Nealy, Steve Henson, and Mitch Richmond. Players had 
to at least be first-team all -conference selections during their 
time as a Wildcat to be on the ballot. 

Richmond and Henson were unable to attend due to 
previous engagements. 

"Obviously, it was indeed a real honor," Barrett, 1950 - 1952 
forward, said. "I happened to be the oldest selection of the 



layers from K- State's past honored 



by Andi Rice 



group, having played over half a century ago. On behalf of the 
1950-51 team I was very honored to have someone selected 
to represent that particular team." 

The coaches selected for the team were Jack Gardner ( 147- 
81), Tex Winter (262-117) and Jack Hartman (295-169), who 
died Nov. 6, 1998. 

"It's hard on a new coach to try and build a program up 
and try and get it back where it once was," Winter said. " ( Jim 
Wooldridge) certainly has done an excellent job in bringing in 
new players and trying to keep the tradition alive. Of course, 
the former players appreciate it and 
consequently they'll be much more 
supportive of the program." 

As a part of the tribute, the 
current team wore violet jerseys, 
replicates of the ones worn in the 
late 1970s. 

"We wanted to wear those jer- 
seys to symbolize that we remember 

our past and it's important to us," ALL-CENTURY MEMBERS

GAMES were a trademark for the Wildcats' 
season — the proof was in the last three seconds of their 
final game. 

With 1.8 seconds on the clock, K- State had a two-point 
lead over Colorado in the first round of the Big 12 tournament, 
the ball was inbounded and CU's James White banked a three 
point shot to end the Wildcats' season, 77-76. 

"You can't really blame it on one thing that happened," 
senior forward Matt Siebrandt said. "A lot of freak things 
took place. We just didn't learn how to win a close one. It was 
our fault. It would get down to the final five minutes and we 
could never pull them out." 

But it did not always happen like that. 

The Cats started their season 11-5, including a seven - game 
winning streak going into conference play against No. 23 Texas 
Tech. K- State beat the Red Raiders 68-44 in front of a sold 
out crowd at Bramlage Coliseum. 

"I was thinking that 'OK, we are getting better,'" Coach 
Jim Wooldridge said. "We had a lot of things that we were 
doing pretty well and I think we all felt like we were seeing an 
improved basketball team. We had some guys returning who 
had had productive years for us and we liked the new play- 
ers who were coming in. At times we were a good basketball 
team and then we hit a stalemate and couldn't score the ball 
as easily and we lost some close games." 

Following the defeat of the Red Raiders, K- State lost 
two games on the road against Colorado and Kansas. They 
returned home for a victory over Nebraska. 

"When you get wins it's real important to have a certain 
confidence level," freshman forward Marques Hayden said. "At 
the same time in the back of our minds we knew that we had 
a lot more to come. The Big 12 is the toughest conference in 
the country. We were happy for that day that we won, but the 
next day we knew that we were going to play against a bigger 
and tougher opponent."

Shattered Hope 

continued from page 274 

Following the win over Nebraska, the Cats did not pull 
it together, adding only two more wins to their record out of 
12 games. 

"Our schedule during that segment became very difficult," 
Wooldridge said. "After the Colorado game we won here and 
after we went to Missouri and played well, I thought we had 
an opportunity there, I thought our season was on the brink 
of being good or coming up short. 

"The turning point for us was the Baylor game at home 
that we dropped. We might have lost some confidence and 
we had some guys struggling to score the ball and we played 
hard and the guys gave a great effort, but we were just having 
a hard time scoring. That was the pivotal game of the season 
for us." 

Nine of the Wildcats' last 11 losses were by nine points or 
less, including a two-point loss to No. 2 Oklahoma in overtime 
and an eight-point shortfall to No. 11 Oklahoma State. 

"It's tough to lose games like that, but it's 
all about sticking together and staying strong," 
Hayden said. "If you look at the games we lost, 
we weren't blown out by a large margin — I just 
think it's one of those things that we should have 
won, but we didn't get it done. It doesn't really 
show up on our record, but I think we know in 
our hearts and our minds that we played our 
butts off." 

The team finished the season 14-18 overall, 
4-13 in conference play. 

"They made some strides," Wooldridge 
said "We are all disappointed that we didn't do 
better in Big 12 play but I do think that this team 
continued to be competitive, and I think that's 
what we had to recognize. I know we all want 
more but they gave an effort and they gave us 
something."

6 'A" center of attention 

by Andi Rice 

the women's 
basketball team earned through its recruits, one candidate 
fit perfectly. The only thing was — she wasn't so small. 

Three years ago, 6 -foot- 4 -inch junior center Nicole 
Ohlde came to Manhattan from the modest community of 
Clay Center, Kan., population approximately 4,500, to play 
for the then up-and-coming women's basketball team. 

Since that move, she has become one of three juniors on 
the nationally- ranked Wildcat team and has developed into 
a dominant leader for the Cats as an All-American, leading 
the team to one of its best records in school history. 

"Nicole is a leader by example," Coach Debra Patterson 
said. "She is the personality of the team, so to speak, off the 
floor. She is the person, I think, who really exemplifies the 
very best in what our team brings to the floor. She is about 
commitment, she is among strong values, she is about work 
ethic, and she is about fun. 

"I could not ask for a better example, on and off the court, 
than Nicole Ohlde brings, and I don't know that I'll ever have 
another player and person with that kind of package because 
they are so special — they're like one in a million." 

Outside the game, Ohlde had normal student 
responsibilities. Her day began around 8 a.m. when she ate 
breakfast with her closest friends, the rest of the basketball 
team. After breakfast she went to classes, which ended by 
12:20 p.m. so she could go to practice. 

"If I have time after class, I'll come back and eat lunch, 
basically just a sandwich because we have practice right 
away," Ohlde said. "If we don't have time, we sometimes take 
a sandwich with us in the morning. Or, like today, I didn't get 
up in time and I just had to get one at the Union."

open all the time and we 
go into each other's rooms 
and hangout," Ohlde said.

With the national rankings and publicity the team 
recieved, interviews for the women were limited to Tuesday 
afternoons after practice. Ohlde was often the last player to 
be done with questions from the crowd of reporters. 

"It's nice that the media is looking at Kansas State and 
we are getting some national attention," Ohlde said. "We feel 
grateful that people are wanting to come talk to us and we 
are getting on the national scene." 

After interviews, the team usually worked in the weight 
room for an hour, then went back to Derby Dinning Center for 
dinner at the training table. Afterward they hit the books. 

"A lot of people may say that I'm missing out on like going 
down to Aggieville or going to parties or stuff like that, but 
that's not something I really want to do anyway," Ohlde said. 
"I don't think I'm missing out on a whole lot — I mean, I 
wouldn't be able to travel to the places I travel and I wouldn't 
be able to have such close friends with the girls like I do." 

No matter how repetitive her days were, everyone who 
knew her said Ohlde was about fun, too. 

"We'll just have our own little dance party in the hall," 
sophomore forward Megan Mahoney said. "She likes to dance 
a lot. With her big long lanky body she's a riot. It doesn't really 
matter what we are doing, we have fun together. We could be 
watching paint dry and make each other laugh." 

In the residence halls, Mahoney roomed with Ohlde and 
said she couldn't ask for a better roommate. 

"I've roomed with her for two years," Mahoney said. "I just 
loved her from the first (time we met). She is such a likable 
person and we goof around a lot and keep each other in good 
spirits when the season gets long. She doesn't like to clean so 
I always have to go and pick up her stuff, and she is kind of 
the messy one, but it's great." 

Away from the game, school and having fun, Ohlde said 
she was just happy she had the opportunity to do what she 
loved and didn't take any of it for granted. 

"Most of the time (life) is enjoyable," Ohlde said. "There 
are a few times things are busy, but if you think about all 
the other things that go on in the world, there's nothing I 
shouldn't be grateful for."

Undersized team overcomes injuries; finishes season No. 8 in the nation 



EXTREME FORCE 



posts best conference record ever 

by Andi Rice 



WITH FOUR RETURNING STARTERS from the 2002 
Sweet Sixteen squad, the Wildcats' slogan said it all, "Ready 
for More." 

"We had a lot to prove," sophomore forward Megan 
Mahoney said, "I mean, we had kind of a surprise season last 
year and this year teams knew what we had, so we were just 
ready to get after it and see what we could do in the league." 

At the beginning of the season, the Cat's undersized roster 
of 10 was quickly cut to nine when sophomore Kari Hanson 
was out for the season due to illness. 

"We were really optimistic that we might be able to string 
together another real competitive stretch through the Big 12 
conference," Coach Deb Patterson said. "I was 
just really impressed with our ability to do that, 
especially once we learned we lost Kari Hanson 
for the season. 

"That was a major, major concern before 
we took the floor, and for about a week or two 
I wasn't exactly sure how successful we might 
be. But this team really established a level of 
dominance that I was really pleased with." 

K- State began their schedule with seven 
wins before dropping the championship game 
of the Stanford (Calif.) Invitational to Stanford 
University. 

"Stanford was a great team; we were on their 
home court," sophomore guard Laurie Koehn 
said. "We were disappointed in that loss but I 
think we learned from it and that's what we want 
to do with every loss we do have. There was a lot 
of the season left, Stanford just came out and competed harder 
than we did that night." 

After the loss to the Cardinal, the Wildcats experienced, 
in the words of Patterson, "a little adversity" when Koehn 
reaggravated a foot injury from a previous season.

lose 59-53 to Notre Dame, 
March 25. The Wildcats 
were 7 of 28 from the 
floor in the second half. 
"Hopefully, we will be able 
to use this season to learn 
and grow from," Coach 
Deb Patterson said. "I am 
certainly disappointed for 
them that we will not have 
the opportunity to con- 
tinue to play this season."

Unsweetened Season 



AMID A SEA OF PURPLE SHIRTS, when the buzzer 
sounded at Bramlage Coliseum, only a handful of green-clad 
fans cheered. On March 25, No. 1 1 seeded Notre Dame ended 
the No. 3 seeded Wildcats' season with a 59-53 victory. That 
loss destroyed any hopes the Wildcats had of returning to the 
Sweet Sixteen round of the NCAA Tournament. 

"When you've worked all season to earn a No. 3 seed, that's 
a good deal of work," Coach Deb Patterson said. "You're at 
home. You're really, I think, hopeful you will bring your very 
best to this 40 minutes. I think the most disappointing thing 
for us is that we will leave the floor after this game knowing we 
didn't necessarily play to the character we have demonstrated 
all season long. We didn't play to our character physically or 
mentally." 

The Fighting Irish jumped to a 13-4 lead over the Cats 
until sophomore guard Laurie Koehn made a three -point 
basket to tie the game at 23 with 5:45 to go in the first half. 
K- State ended the half with a 31-28 edge. 

"It's kind of hard to recall things right now," Koehn said. 
"We were trying to get out there and keep competing and 
trying to plug away when we were having trouble scoring. 
I'm extremely disappointed. It's devastating and not a good 
feeling. It's not a way you ever want to feel." 

In the second half of the game, Notre Dame's defense 
did not allow a K- State field goal until a three -point basket 
from Koehn with 8:57 to go in the game. The Wildcats never 
regained the lead in the second half. 

"A lot of it was not getting to our spots and not doing the 
things we are capable of," junior center Nicole Ohlde said. 
"But you have to give a lot of credit to Notre Dame. They came 
out and were fired up. They were being big. They were being

aggressive with their hands up all 
over the place. They w<

the Wildcats shot their lowest field 
goal percentage and totaled their 
lowest points of the season. They 
also scored the fewest second-half 
points in K-State history in an 
NCAA tournament game. 

"The disappointment of how 
you competed in this final game 
is very extreme, particularly at 
home," Patterson said. "The first 20 
minutes I'm OK with. The second 
20 minutes — those will be tough 
to let go." 

Two days before the loss ending 
their season, K- State beat Harvard 
79-69. The game was the Wildcats' 
29th win of the season, a school 
record, and their 22nd consecutive 
win in Bramlage Coliseum. 

The Wildcats ended their 
season 29-5. 

"We got in the way of ourselves, 
not being aggressive," sophomore 
forward Megan Mahoney said. "It's hard to realize that we're 
done and we don't have anymore games — the season comes 
to an end quickly."

288 : Sports 




IN ITS THIRD YEAR as a varsity sport, the equestrian 
team had already opened eyes and turned heads. 

Last season two riders competed at the Intercollegiate 
Horse Show Association's national competition. Western 
rider Brandi Vogel became K- State's first national champion 
rider with her win in advanced horsemanship. 

Kelly Gratny, 2002 graduate, took home third place in the 
open-reining competition. 

In the fall season, the team looked to build on those 
accomplishments. 

"We have some tradition now," sophomore Allison 
Woodworth said. "We are looking to build on that and who 
knows how far that will take us." 

One thing that changed for the team was the 
competition. 

For the first two years, the team was in Region two, Zone 
seven — where stiff competition awaited the Cats. Now in 
Region two, Zone nine, the team was pitted against smaller 
schools in Illinois and Missouri. 

"We are the largest school in our Zone by far," Coach 
Lindsay Breidenthal said. "I'm looking for us to do a lot this 
year. The level of competition is not what we are used to and 
I know that our primary goal of taking our entire team to 
nationals should not be a problem." 

The English equestrian team highlighted the year in its 
first show of the season Oct. 25-27 with three straight first- 
place finishes. 

"I am very pleased with our performance this weekend," 
English Coach Meghan Cunningham said. "It wasn't just two 



or three riders but it was the whole team." 

Woodworth led the Wildcats as she was crowned High- 
Point Rider on both Saturday and Sunday. On Sunday the 
Cats set a school record for most points scored in a single 
show, 40. 

Cunningham said she was pleased with Woodworth's 
performance. 

"Allison always puts out an outstanding ride," 
Cunningham said. "Since she's a sophomore, I expect her to 
be great for us for another two years. She is a very dependable 
rider." 

Finishing the fall season, the 
Western team closed with a first- 
place finish in the Truman State 
University show, with 22 points 
over Southwest Missouri State. 

Vogel earned High -Point Rider 
honors for the second straight show 
and third time in the season when 
she finished first in open reining 
and open horsemanship. Nine 
other riders won individually to 
set a record for the Cats. 

"I couldn't have asked for the 

women to ride any better than they 

did," Breidenthal said. "When the 

judges are looking at horsemanship 

and skill, we will win out every 

time."

Intrastate Showdown 



ONE GAME WASN'T ENOUGH. 

The first game of the KSU Ed Charter Memorial Soccer 
Tournament on Sept. 27 was a defensive battle pitting 
intrastate rivals K- State and KU against each other. 

But 60 minutes was not enough to decide a winner. The 
game ended in a 1-1 tie. 

However, when they played again Sunday afternoon 
there had to be a winner. After the dust settled from the 
eight men's teams battling it out all weekend, the intrastate 
schools were the only ones left standing. 

At halftime of the championship game, the teams were 
tied at 0-0. The worn- down Cats came into the second half 
exhausted and in need of a spark, sophomore goaltender 
Christopher Fey said. 

"This game was just like Friday night - a defensive battle 
where both teams were playing well," he said. 

The team's only score came less than a minute into the 
second half from a goal by senior Jeffrey R. White. 

"We came out of halftime strong," Fey said. "But that 
goal gave us a spark. I saw guys getting to loose balls that 
they may have not gotten before. We really put it all out on 
the line after we got the goal." 

The Cats got the one goal they needed, and Fey kept the 
Jayhawks from touching the back of the net. 

It had been seven years since the Wildcats took the 



riding champions to win tournament 

tournament title. Not only that, but the Wildcats beat 
defending champions, KU. 

Getting to the championship was a feat itself. The 
Cats took down Nebraska 3-2 in two overtimes in a tough 
semifinal game. 

In a game where 
physical play went 
both ways, referees 
dished out eight yel- 
low cards and two red 
cards. 

The Cats finish- 
ed the weekend

K-State noticed as half squad turns heads 



A MIGHTY FEAT 



THREE TIMES A WEEK, a lot of scuffling went on 
upstairs behind the weight room in the Chester E. Peters 
Recreation Complex. Eight men caused the commotion as 
they threw each other around on a padded floor mat. 

With half a squad, the K- State Wrestling Club didn't get 
a lot of attention, but that didn't stop them from grappling 
their way to two conference titles, a ninth-place finish in 
the national tournament 2002 and producing two Ail- 
Americans. 

"I'm 100 percent confident that we could be national 
champs if we had a full squad," senior Beau Tillman said. 
"We have a lot of talent here. In the beginning we were just 
guys wrestling around and now we've become a team wrestling 
together." 

The men did not receive much funding, so they 
competed in one tournament before conference and national 
competitions. 

"Imagine going to the Superbowl without playing one 
game," Tillman said. "It's hard to win against people who 
have had a full season when you only have one or two matches 
under your belt. The school only pays for the national 
tournament, so we're funding ourselves."

Little funding, no coach hardly faze team 

by Andi Rice 

Another problem was the club lacked a full-time coach. 

"It's something we'd definitely like to have," sophomore 
Miles Neiffer said. "Last year we didn't have a coach at all. This 
year, Beau Tillman has kind of stepped up; he isn't wrestling 
this semester so he's kind of assumed that role. It would be 
nice to have a full-time coach but we've got to make do with 
what we've got." 

Despite coaching problems, the eight teammates motivated 
each other to spend two hours three times a week practicing 
and conditioning for conference and national competitions. 

"(Not having a coach) makes it a lot more personal," 
senior Karl Singer said. "You have to push yourself rather 
than having a coach there telling you to practice everyday. 
We've got to do the recruiting, and train ourselves and get 
ourselves ready to compete." 

Tillman said he really did not consider himself a coach, 
just a captain who tried to let club members experience college 
wrestling. 

"It's about having someone in your corner," he said. 
"When we go to competitions, they need someone to be on 
their side coaching them and telling them what to do. I just 
wanted to do that and be there for them."

Midwest meets old west 

'EAMS brought bronc busting, bull 
riding and steer wrestling to Weber Arena at the 47th annual 
KSU Rodeo, Feb. 21-23. 

With 416 competitors and 700 entries, the rodeo was one 
of the largest K- State competed in. The only thing missing 
was more K- State participants. 

Southwest Oklahoma State's Cord McCoy said K- State 
didn't get much recognition because they only had eight 
members due to eligibility, but they put on a great show. 

"It's an awesome rodeo," McCoy said. "The only thing I 
feel bad about is that this is my fourth year and the last time 
I get to come to the K- State College Rodeo. I love this rodeo. 
It's always good times, good fans and good stock." 

Senior Stacia Wood and sophomore Kasey Lee qualified 
for the final round, Feb. 23. 

"K- State usually puts on one of the best rodeos in our 
region and it's usually one of the biggest," Wood said. "Our 
club is very small compared to most of the other schools. This 
year we only have eight team members traveling to the rodeos 
and we usually have about 20 or so." 

Wood placed sixth in goat tying with a time of 7.0 seconds 
and Lee placed seventh in barrel racing with a time of 26.37.

"I didn't have that great of a weekend," Wood said. "It's 
kind of hard to concentrate as much when you are putting on 
a rodeo because you are so worried about your different jobs 
and running around trying to get that stuff done; that you 
can't really concentrate. I just didn't have a very good weekend, 
compared to how I should." 

The women's team scored 20 
points, finishing in 10th place. 

"We bring a lot of people in 
to help with our rodeo so it's 
successful," Wood said. "We don't 
put it on to be recognized, we just 
put it on. I think it's a great event for 
the community. There aren't very 
many rodeos around here, and I 
think it's great that they can come 
and get a taste of the old west tradition." 

Other members competing in the rodeo were seniors Leah 
Tenpenny and Brett Curry in break away and steer wrestling, 
respectively, juniors Brandon Dreyer and Matt McKinstry, in 
bare back riding and calf roping, respectively, and sophomore 
Jody Holland, in barrel racing. 

"I didn't do very good," Dreyer said. "I would have liked 
to have done a lot better than I did, but I had a good horse 
and there's no shame in bucking off a good horse. I'll get him 
next time, I guess."

TWO GUYS, two rackets and a birdie were on the court 
Oct. 17 at the Chester E. Peters Recreational Complex to 
determine the best badminton player at K- State. 

The match between freshman Matthieu Trenit and 
graduate student Zhefeng Zhao took all of 10 minutes to 
complete. 

In the 130th anniversary year of the sport of badminton, 
Zhao was declared intramural champion. 

"It feels good, but I would like to see other very good 
players around," Zhao said. "There 
were some who were even better 
than me, but they've all graduated. 
I hope this sport can become more 
popular and more people will play 
it." 

Although badminton was one 
of the less popular racket sports, 
the quick matches took a lot out of 
an athlete, Zhao said. 

"It's a very demanding sport, 
you can have lots of exercise," he said. "I like the movement 
control of the birdie because I have learned I can control the 
birdie. It's partly because I'm kind of good at it, and that's 
why I like it very much." 

Though badminton was hidden in the K- State 
intramural world, Jay R. Herrmann, senior in construction 
science management, said it provided an opportunity at a 
new sport and a chance to meet new people. 

"I don't know that it offers anything more," he said, "but 
it's enjoyable because you get to meet a ton of new people. 
And I think it's fun to be competitive. Plus, it's a pretty good 
workout, especially if you're playing someone at your skill 
level, you're going to be really competitive and fighting for 
every point." 

That competitive drive drew the 1 19 people who signed 
up for the individual competition, John Wondra, assistant 
director for intramurals, said. 

"It's a chance to compete individually and test their 
sharpness as an individual," Wondra said. "On a team sport, 
you're only as strong as your best player, where here you are 
on your own. It's also a chance for recreation and exercise."

Sink or Swim 



THE SWIM CLUB struggled with low attendance since 
its start in 1997. 

David Sexton and a group of Manhattan High School 
graduate swimmers started the club when they came to 
K- State. They hoped to see it build to United States Swimming 
standards. 

"One of the obstacles was attendance and trying to get 
people interested," Sexton, founding president, said. "The 
other main concern was the rec services doesn't allow us 
to use their times as an organized club time. We had to go 
through and see if the LIFE program would allow us to use 
their pool." 

As obstacles surfaced, the club fizzled out and the USS 
membership expired. 

But, two years ago Scott Allen, another original member, 
decided to try again. 

"When I took it over I wanted to do the USS thing again, 
and it was going well," he said. "We didn't have as good of a 
turnout as I wanted, but it was decent enough to compete. We 
couldn't go against KU or anything but recently KU cut their 
team and then some other Big 12 teams have been cut out, so 
NCAA-wise, we just didn't have a chance." 

Allen became president and coach of the team and hoped 
to build it back up before he graduated in fall 2003. 

"In the past year, I've kind of built it back up," Allen 
said. "In the past two years, people just came and went. Our 
numbers fluctuated between three and four swimmers up to 
like 15. Right now we are just at a building stage." 

With the team registered as a club, junior member Robert 
Heil looked at it as just that. 

"We are a club since we kind of just got started," Heil said. 
"We all don't really know each other yet. We want to get some 
more people out so we can maybe start clicking a little bit and 
get more people involved so we'll feel more like a team. Right 
now it's just fun and something else to do."

Faculty members take a 

PLAY DAY 

to relax, golf with co-workers 

by Ands Rice 

SOME PROFESSORS scheduled tee times around classes 
to compete in the annual Faculty and Staff Golf Tournament 
at Rolling Meadows Golf Course Oct. 27. 

"I showed a film in my 8:30 a.m. class," Mark Barnett, 
professor in psychology, said. "I had to bring a projector from 
Bluemont to Justin Hall and I was thinking how fast I could 
drag it back up the hill so I would make my tee time. But I 
did prepare better for the class than I did to come out here 
and play." 

One hundred thirty- four faculty and staff members took 
a few hours of their day to play away from their offices. 

"They enjoy themselves," Mike Webb, PGA golf 
professional and course manager, said. "It gives them one 
day that makes their next 30 go a little bit easier." 

For most participants, it was a way to enjoy a day with their 
colleagues rather than a day of tough competition, Michael 
Marstall, printer specialist, said. 

"We end up having fun," Marstall said. "I think we come 
out here trying to do well, but we haven't come close yet. 
Realism sets in. We joke with each other all the time." 

While on the course, Marstall's group was interrupted by 
a gaggle of geese. 

"They were walking across the fairway and we were 
wagering who would hit them first," Marstall said. "To tell 
you the truth, it almost happened." 

John Devore, professor in electrical and computer 
engineering; Steven Starrett, associate professor in civil 
engineering; Larry Glasgow, professor in chemical engineering, 
and David Soldan, professor and department head in electrical 
and computer engineering, won the competition. 

"We're very competitive," Starrett said. "It's all in good 
fun, and it gives an opportunity to work on a task that isn't 
work."

disc golf offers different view of campus 




IN WARM WEATHER CONDITIONS, five men walked 
one path on campus most Saturday and Sunday afternoons. 

To the average eye, the path winded around sculptures, 
trees and buildings, but to disc golfers campus altered into 
an 18 -hole course. 

Scott Kohl and Gary Clift, K- State alumni, and Ralph 
Nyberg, Paul Nyberg and Mark Morgan, Manhattan residents, 
met at the W parking lot by the Marianna Kistler Beach 
Museum of Art by noon, and started their routine game at 
12:30 p.m. 

"I play the course only in order to be out with the 
fellows and move around a little bit," Clift said. "It's a social 
opportunity more than a competition. It's one of those 
homecoming opportunities." 

West of the limestone wall separating campus from 
Manhattan Avenue, a concrete slab laid amongst the trees for 
the first tee box. The hole was a tree marked with two faded, 
spray-painted, white lines. After each of the men hit the target 
they moved to tee box No. 2 in the parking lot. 

As the university modified its campus, the course was 
adjusted to accommodate the new features, which usually 
became hazards to the holes. 

At hole No. 2, the Vietnam Memorial, added in 1989, 
became a hazard for the players. 

On hole No. 9, a three-piece sculpture made of cast 
concrete and stainless steel became the target. 

"Some of the holes have changed numerous times since 
I've been playing," Ralph Nyberg said. "We used to shoot at 
the art, but a number of years ago someone told us the art 
was suffering so we changed and now we shoot at objects 
around the art. When the university makes a change, we 
make a change." 

Cole said the course was more challenging and more 
entertaining because of its constant changes. 

"There is nothing wrong with change — it's fun," Cole 
said. "When you're at work, it's crappy because you're working. 
But when you're playing the course, you're outside having fun 
even if you're playing bad. A bad day of golf is better than a 
good day of work any day."

Women join greeks for Homecoming Week celebrations; both gain 
benefits from additional participants in ceremonies, festivities 



OVIA members wanted to get more out 
of their Homecoming experience. After a one -year absence, 
they rejoined the greek organizations for the festivities. Alpha 
Delta Pi accepted the women's cooperative house to join and 
formed the group of ADPi, Alpha Gamma Rho, Clovia and 
Theta Xi. 

"We decided the more the merrier," said Elizabeth 
Younger, ADPi Homecoming chair and junior in psychology. 
"They were a big help and gave us a chance to know more 
than just guys." 

The week was a change of pace for Clovia because of the 
number of activities members participated in and the number 
of people in the events, said Cori Woelk, Clovia president and 
senior in animal sciences and industry. 

"We got a lot more involved," Woelk said. "They do a lot 
of activities during the week and there was a lot going on. 
We had a great time with the pairings that we had. Our girls 
got to meet a lot of new people and hopefully gained lots of 
personal interaction."

With Clovia's help, the four groups earned first place in 
parade spirit, second in Wildcat Request Live, third in Paint 
the 'Ville and fourth in Pant-the-Chant. 

"Working on projects like the float and Pant-the-Chant 
— that's when a large number of people from our pairings 
came together," said Colleen Kramer, Clovia Homecoming 
chair and junior in agricultural economics. "It was fun to 
socialize with them daily and work together on this." 

The new faces from Clovia added much needed enthusiasm 
to the group, Younger said. 

"They helped with spirit," she said. "They were so excited 
to do it and added so much to our group. Being their first time, 
they were more excited and provided more spirit." 

The memorable new experiences answered questions about 
future involvement with the greeks during Homecoming 
Week, Kramer said. 

"We all had a great time this year," she said. "We still 
talk about the fun we had and so I know we'll do it again 
next year."

a run for office 

House supports 2 members in campaign for SGA positions 



; and Gregory 
Woodyard campaigned for student body president and vice 
president, respectively, in spring 2002, they not only wanted 
to make an impact on campus, but also ran to represent Smith 
Scholarship House. 

Greene, senior in management and pre-law, said the pair 
decided to run in spring 2001. 

"We wanted to try to make a difference on campus," he 
said. "I was trying to enhance the image of the Smith house 
— a lot of people didn't know much about it." 

Greene said Woodyard, junior in business administration, 
possessed several qualities he liked as a running mate. 

"He's a good debater," Greene said. "He's able to think 
quickly, and he's a good negotiator. He got us a good deal 
when we bought our (campaign) T-shirts." 

When the two ran, Greene said they did not expect to 
do well because of their ages. Woodyard was a sophomore 
and Greene was a junior, by hours, however, it was his third 
semester at K- State. 

Steve Forsythe, alumnus and former Smith president, said 
the house supported Greene and Woodyard.

"Going into it," Forsythe said, "I don't know if the 
expectations were real high because they were young and 
hadn't really been involved in any of it before. But we were 
really proud because they took it seriously — it wasn't just a 
joke to them." 

House members supported the campaign by purchasing 
T-shirts and helping in other areas. For example, when 
Greene and Woodyard were unable to speak at functions, 
other members campaigned in their place. 

Some campaign issues included a campus shuttle system, 
a different grading system, and the enforcement of dead-week 
rules. 

Although the two were defeated in the primaries, Greene 
said it was worth the effort. 

"I'm proud that we went out and tried, at least," he said. 
"We gave it our best shot and I think overall the guys in the 
house were very proud." 

Woodyard also said the house showed support after the 
election results were announced. 

"They weren't disappointed that we didn't win," he said. 
"At the time, they were just proud that we tried."

Completing tasks in cooperation women experience real-world situations, 
sustain independence from greek system, residence halls 



PANS cluttered the Smurthwaite Scholarship 
House kitchen as a group of women worked to create a meal 
for 46 others. It was part of their daily routine. 

In 1961, Smurthwaite opened with a cooperative -living 
environment. The women cooked and cleaned the house to 
earn a reduced living rate. 

Smurthwaite continued to incorporate the independent 
lifestyle, but also joined forces with the Department of 
Housing and Dining Services, which provided Smurthwaite 
with a kitchen manager, who assigned house duties to the 
women, and a student dietician who planned meals to be 
cooked. 

The women began working three hours before the meal 
was to be served. Preparation started early because the 
amount of water needed for the large quantity of food took 
an hour to boil on the stove. 

"Some girls learned how to cook, who didn't know how, by 
living in Smurthwaite," Mary Arnold, freshman in secondary 
education, said. "I think we all gained a sense of camaraderie

from helping each other out." 

Since house duties were based on seniority, freshmen were 
generally assigned cooking duties. 

"Let's just say that it takes a long time for people to learn 
how to make gravy," Heidi Aschenbrenner, junior in interior 
architecture, said. "Lots of stuff gets burnt and there are a lot 
of flat cookies but we have an open kitchen so there is always 
lunch meat for sandwiches." 

Besides cooking meals, house members were required to 
clean the entire house except for the bathrooms. 

If a girl missed an assigned duty, she received a verbal 
warning from the kitchen manager and was required to do 
extra duties. After one warning, she was sent to the judicial 
board. 

"Women learn the importance of being responsible 
for each other," said Jessica Heier, junior in industrial 
engineering. "We all come from diverse backgrounds and 
are involved in different activities. We depend on each other 
which is a unique way to build a community."

Lighting the sky in the cool night air, residents of Strong 
Complex ushered in the holiday spirit by hanging 12 strings 
of brilliant white garland lights around Boyd, Putnam and 
Van Zile halls. 

"I just had this idea since last year," Kyle Larson, sophomore 
in elementary education, said. "It had never been done with a 
residence hall before this year." 

Larson organized the event and said she would not change 
anything regarding plans to repeat it. 

"Everything ran smoothly," Larson said. "The whole 
day's events were great. No one even fell off a ladder or 
anything." 

The cost of the event rounded out at nearly $270. The

Strong Complex residents and the Strong Complex Governing 
Association provided funding. 

"I helped cook the dinner for everyone after the lights 
were put up," Holly Cribbs, junior in family and consumer 
education, said. "We made soup and bread and brownies in 
the Putnam Hall kitchenette." 

Residents and staff took part in the day-long activities, 
including dinner and a movie, which were capped off with 
the lighting. 

"I would estimate that in all of the day's activities, well 
over 50 people participated," said Missy Burgess, assistant 
residence life coordinator for Boyd Hall. "It was a great activity 
and mixer for all involved."

j§ Free drinks, music, alcohol awareness education bring 
ja* Ford women together for safe event, socializing 



Whirring blenders, lively music and flashing lights 
welcomed residents entering the hall's basement for Mocktails 
Around Midnight, an alcohol awareness program organized 
by the Ford Hall Governing Board Dec. 5. 

The event educated residents about the consequences of 
irresponsible drinking. 

"We wanted them to have fun," said Tanisha Jackson, HGB 
secretary and sophomore in business administration, "but we 
also wanted them to learn about the effects of alcohol." 

Jackson and five other residents comprised the bartending 
crew and served Shirley Temples, cherry Cokes and fruit 
smoothies to attendees. 

"I didn't think there'd be that many people at all," Kelby 
Wiswell, freshman in open- option, said. "I've seen a lot of 
people I know, and I didn't expect that." 

The initial line at the bar numbered nearly 60 residents. 
Bartender Melanie Lee, HGB educational chair and 
sophomore in political science, said she was also impressed 
with the crowd. 

Meaghan Abood 



"I think the turnout was pretty good," Lee said. "We went 
through a lot of stuff." 

In addition to providing free drinks, the bartenders set 
up tables with snacks and informational brochures about 
the effects of alcohol abuse. Attendants answered alcohol - 
awareness trivia for prizes of candy, pens and lip gloss. 

Residents arrived with friends and congregated in 
groups. Jennifer Orta, freshman in journalism and mass 
communications, attended the event with two friends from 
her floor and stayed until last call around midnight. 

"It was fun," Orta said. "I thought it was a really good idea 
to get the hall together like that. They should have things like 
this more often." 

The social aspect of mocktails was just as important as 
the educational value, Lee said. 

"It was a fun social program that also educated the 
residents about alcohol," she said. "We wanted to have 
everyone come together to promote the community of Ford 
Hall and to learn something worthwhile."

Zoo creatures visit residents for education, interaction 



RESIDENTS OF GOODNOW HALL interacted with 
animals normally not on display at Sunset Zoological Park. 

"When I first saw some of the animals they brought out, 
I thought 'oh wow,'" Julia Holman, junior in architectural 
engineering, said. "I was scared to interact with the animals 
by touching them at first, but it was actually interesting to do 
that because it was not as scary as I thought it would be." 

Craig Wanklyn, junior in architectural engineering, 
organized Zoo Animals Taking Over Goodnow. 

"I called the program ZATOG," Wanklyn said. "I used the 
acronym so people would come to the event." 

Sunset Zoo provided a chinchilla, gecko, dumbo rat, 
hissing cockroaches, and a boa constrictor. 

Wanklyn said ZATOG offered an educational experience 
and a different way to engage with animals. 



The event also included a discussion describing which 
animals were good to keep in a residence hall room and 
which were not. 

"The people who had the animals told us what types of 
eating habits and environments the animals were familiar 
with," Alexa Passman, sophomore in open- option, said. 
"Some of the animals weren't recommended to be brought 
into the dorms just because they are hard to take care of." 

Holman said by attending, she learned a chinchilla would 
be difficult to keep in her room. 

"Rather than getting an animal that would be hard to 
take care of in the dorms, I am going to get a rat when I get 
my own room," Holman said. "Although I never thought of 
having one before, it is good to know that it will be easier to 
take care of."

flags for hope 



Residents use programs, banner display to increase 
^ students' awareness of hate -crimes 



Waving in the breeze in front ofWaters Hall, 9,413 colored 
flags represented the total number of hate crimes committed 
in the United States in 2000. 

Students participating in Haymaker Hall's Campaign 
Against Hate used the flags as a visible sign of how hate 
crimes persisted. 

Amanda Blush, freshman in elementary education, 
said she saw the multitude of flags as a good reminder for 
students. 

"It is a pretty cool display," Blush said. "It reminds you to 
take time and not judge people by their religion or disability 
or skin color." 

Instead of differences, she said people should focus on 
similarities. 

"It reminds everybody we're all humans," she said. "We 
should all be treated equally." 

In addition to the flags, students attended events in 
Haymaker aimed at educating residents about violence and 
hate crimes. 




"We did programming in the hall," said Jacob Schuler, 
resident assistant and senior in art. "We did three other 
programs: Strike Out, A Day in the Life Of and Movie with 
MA." 

Bryan Murphy, senior in sociology, said he thought the 
campaign was a success because the information reached 
students. 

"It increased awareness about hate crimes," Murphy said. 
"Lots of people don't realize hate crimes are a result of fear." 

Murphy said the flag display attracted more people to 
hate -crime awareness. 

"We really increased the visibility of the program," he said. 
"A lot of people stopped to read the sign. By far, that increased 
the awareness on campus the most." 

Schuler agreed the program was a success because it 
encouraged students to think. 

"People would stop, look at the sign and digest what it was 
about," he said. "The whole goal was to get people aware, and 
I think we were pretty successful with that."

Residents strive for gold, community involvement in 
month -long revival of Couch Potato Olympics 



normally refer to international sport 
competitions, but Marlatt Hall borrowed the term for a 
different purpose. The Couch Potato Olympics began Nov. 
17 and ended Dec. 13. 

When the games first appeared in 1996, the goal was to 
involve students who didn't participate in sports-related 
activities. The games consisted of bowling, shooting pool, 
throwing darts and betting on the NCAA basketball 
tournament bracket. 

After taking a hiatus from 2000 to 2002, the games 
returned with more events. 

Activities such as bowling and a TV marathon were 
brought back, while board and card games were added. 

"I was really glad to see Pitch as one of the games," Jimmie 
Klein, senior in computer engineering, said. "It's not one most 
people would think of." 

The Marlatt Hall Governing Board chose the events from 
a list and James Stoutenborough, hall president and senior in 
political science, planned and coordinated the events. 



"I was the only one around when we did them before," 
Stoutenborough said. "I thought we would try something a 
little different this time to get more participation." 

Eighty- five residents participated in more than 300 rounds 
of games. Stoutenborough said the goal was simple. 

"We wanted everyone to have fun and get their minds 
off studying," he said. "We try to make dorm life as good as 
it can be." 

Klein said the games brought people together. 

"It was an opportunity to learn new games as well as a 
social event," he said. "It was good for people." 

For students who spent a majority of their time in the hall, 
it was a reason to get involved. 

"I'm usually hanging around," Nathan Johnson, junior in 
architectural engineering, said, "so I thought 'why not?'" 

Stoutenborough said the event increased socialization. 

"Interaction between the floors was not always as high," 
he said. "This way, people can find other people who like to 
play the same games and then go set them up."

Residents participate in annual drag competition 



RESSES were picked and make up 
carefully applied. Just another women's night out except for 
one key difference — they were not women. 

Men, dressed as women, gathered Nov. 20 in the basement 
of Moore Hall. The Second Annual Drag Queen Competition 
allowed female residents to sponsor one male resident as a 
drag queen. 

"This year it was a lot bigger," Rachel Brown, hall president, 
said. "Twice as many people showed up to watch." 

In addition to runway modeling and talent competition, 
an evening-wear event and question-and-answer section 
were implemented. 

Three judges, two female and one male, determined the 
winner for creativity, femininity, originality and attitude. 

"It was good," said Erica Mederos, sophomore in 



psychology and judge for the competition."There were some 
parts that you were like, 'awesome.'" 

Anticipation built as the audience and six contestants 
waited for the winner to be announced. Loretta, otherwise 
known as Blake Zogleman, freshman in animal sciences and 
industry, won the competition. 

"It was different, but it was fun," Zogleman said. "My 
favorite part was the talent part because I got to shake it." 

To prepare, Zogleman shaved his legs, wore fake eyelashes, 
and practiced a walk and song. He performed "Did I Shave 
My Legs for This" by country artist Deana Carter. 

Other contestants' talents included juggling while 
speaking French and a personalized fashion show. 

"I learned that it is rough being a woman," Zogleman 
said. "I hope my dad doesn't find out about this."

Residents find solution to closed dining center by creating 
affordable dinner program for students 



SUNDAY AFTERNOON. With campus dining centers 
closed, mom's home cooking miles away and Manhattan 
dining options a drive from the residence halls, students in 
Putnam Hall struggled to find a solution for eating dinner. 

Enter dollar dinners. 

Charging $1 per person, residents from each floor of 
Putnam rotated cooking dinner in the hall kitchenette every 
Sunday night for fellow residents. 

"Sunday night dollar dinners are one of many traditions 
Putnam Hall has established over the past couple of years," 
Scott Tystad, hall president and senior in horticulture, said. 
"Dollar dinners started late fall semester last year. It was so 
popular that the program came back to Putnam, and will be 
carried on for years to come." 

The cooks received $35 for each meal from the Hall 
Governing Board to help avert the costs of making each 
meal. 

"Usually, on each floor, someone gets into it who really 
enjoys cooking," Bevin Wesselman, junior in biology, said. 



"We've had a positive response to it." 

Since the dinners' inception, Jesse Loewen, senior in 
mechanical engineering, has been one of those enthusiastic 
cooks. 

"I made a point of doing it last year, frequently," he said. 
"I enjoy cooking and I get to do that for free and they get to 
eat what they like. So it's a good deal." 

From lasagna to pancakes to dumplings, meals for the 
dinners were as varied as the cooks. 

"For a dollar, the residents can eat a normally hefty meal," 
Tystad said. "Even though the hall usually ends up losing about 
$5 to $6 (total) on the deal, it's well worth the community- 
building aspect." 

Inspired by the program at Putnam, Boyd Hall residents 
created their own dollar dinners, which proved the program's 
success, Wesselman said. 

"It's a really good time," Loewen said. "It's a great little 
thing to do on Sunday nights to cool down from the weekend. 
It also helps us get to know our residents."

^ Van Zile Hall Governing Board organizes shaving cream 
slip-n-slide for residents of the Strong Complex 



Shaving cream and water was all that was needed for 
afternoon entertainment. 

Boyd, Putnam, and Van Zile halls coordinated Water Day, 
Sept. 15, for residents and staff to get to know each other. 

"Basically, it is just a day for everyone to come outside 
while it's still warm and have fun getting messy with water and 
shaving cream," said Kelly Lipovitz, Van Zile Hall Governing 
Board president and junior in secondary education. "It is also 
a great way for our new residents to get to know each other 
and some of the complex staff." 

Lipovitz said each hall in Strong Complex was like a 
community, and the event created a community-building 
experience. 

"It's a complex thing," Lipovitz said. "We are so different 
from all the other halls that we haven't included them in the

past, but they are always welcome to join us." 

A large tarp covered with water and shaving cream 
provided a slippery surface for residents to slide across. 

"We covered the slide with shaving cream and attempted 
different tricks," David Freeze, sophomore in kinesiology, 
said. "We just kind of made up our own tricks as we went 
along, from the classic head-first dive to the surfing style." 

Despite a cold front during the weekend of the event, 
residents did not pass up the temptation to get messy. 

"Originally, I was just going to hang out with the people 
who were messing around and not dive down the slide or 
anything," James Stoner, junior in physical science, said. "I 
just couldn't resist after seeing how ridiculous the activity was. 
You can't have fun unless you're getting dirty, and I certainly 
had more fun after I was covered in shaving cream."

Residents compete in Penny Wars to raise money for MS 



WORTH MORE than a jar full of pennies, the women on 
West Hall's fourth and fifth floors invested time and effort 
to form a close-knit community. 

One of the activities the fourth and fifth floors participated 
in was Penny Wars. 

The event supported Aaron Kennedy, senior in interior 
architecture and Marlatt Hall resident, on a bike ride for 
multiple sclerosis. 

"Since Marlatt is our brother building, he approached us 
about the idea," Heather Klein, West resident life coordinator, 
said. "We took it from there to provide our own incentive to 
do our part." 

Sept. 15-20 the event raised $208. 

Both residence halls had jars at the front desk, each with 
their respective resident assistent, RLC and multicultural 
assistant's pictures on them. 

Klein said the event became a competition between the 
two buildings. 

Pennies added points to the score and silver coins 
detracted from the score, Klein said. The jar with the highest 
score won. 



West's fourth floor raised the most points and won a 
chance to make Diana Hyle, fourth floor RA, into a sundae. As 
part of the terms of winning, Kennedy made rounds through 
the winning hall wearing makeup, dressed as a woman. 

"They had a good time with it," Klein said. "Some were 
shocked, but I think they had a good time with it." 

Chelsea Mueller, fifth floor resident assistant and 
sophomore in psychology, and Ginger Lenz, fifth floor RA 
and junior in elementary education, said at the beginning of 
the year they were uncertain what the women on their floor 
would be like. 

"I came into it kind of worried because this is an intensive 
study floor and the women are usually quiet and reserved," 
Mueller said. "But they unanimously voted to change quiet 
hours to 10 p.m. - 8 a.m., which is average for most halls." 

Muller and Lenz agreed the vote set the tone for life on 
the floor, realizing the residents wanted more of a social 
environment. 

"If we have an activity, it'll be the fifth floor that's there," 
said Mueller. "They are usually most, if not all of the audience 
during events. They take the initiative for the hall."

men set the stage for chapter, individual success 



Reviving a commitment to leadership, community 
participation and campus and scholastic achievement, four 
Men of Acacia gave members tools to implement a set of self- 
improvement programs. 

"We study what makes an effective leader," Joseph 
Thomas, president and senior in architectural engineering, 
said. "Our goal is to have everybody in the chapter have some 
sort of leadership role on campus." 

Their vision was the driving force behind the 14 -person 
group since the fraternity's reinstatement into the Interfra- 
ternity Council, fall 2002. 

Four Men worked with the board of directors to reinvent 
the chapter after it lost standing with the IFC in 1999. Alumni 
— called Senior Men of Acacia — approached Thomas; Lucas 
Shivers, senior in elementary education; Tyler Turner, gradu- 
ate student in agricultural economics, and Aaron Rodehorst, 
K- State alumnus, with the idea spring 2001. 

"They wanted diversity," Shivers said. "They gave us a 
cornerstone and we filled in the foundations." 

Senior Men funded renovation of the chapter house and 
the Men of Acacia moved in Aug. 20. 

"We didn't have anything to start with," Shivers said. "It 
was like moving into a brand new house." 

As part of the developments, members established a 
framework for the organization in a 75 -page manual. 

Using their guiding principles, members recruited other 
men who shared the same vision of personal development, 
Shivers said. 

"We look for really motivated men who want to not just get 
through college, get a job and that's it, but who want to succeed 
in all areas of life," Brian Murphy, senior in finance, said. 

Murphy, the fifth member recruited, said recruitment 
was slower- paced. 

"It's a one -on -one approach rather than the big rush 



events," he said. "It fits what we want to do better." 

Pledges — named Young Men — were paired with at least 
one Man of Acacia as Partners in Encouraging and Enlighten- 
ing Relationship for Success to help them through the process 
of initiation. 

"Once initiated, there is an equal relationship," Murphy 
said. "They both push each other to better each other. They 
don't necessarily need us, but with help from all the brothers 
in the house, they can get to where they want to be." 
Alumni involve- 



ment and input was 
another important 
part of their system, 
Thomas said. 

"We look at what 
they value from their 
fraternity experience, 
see what elements 
they lacked and try 
to implement them in 
Acacia now," he said. 



• Acacia was established 
at K-State in 1913 as one 
of the first four fraternities 
on campus. 

• Five campus buildings 
were named after 
Acacians: Seaton, Willard, 
Waters, Ford and Bushnell 
halls. 



The relationships 
encouraged Men of Acacia to achieve their personal goals. All 
members created goals using four key areas: physical, social 
and emotional, mental and spiritual, as well as a personal 
mission statement. 

"We make sure we can teach the young men to balance 
their lives and not over- do it in any area," Murphy said. "We 
do that by sitting down and writing out our goals." 

The Board of Directors and Men of Acacia established 
programs to aid in leadership skills and personal growth. 

"(The programs) are a start," Shivers said. "It takes time 
to find what does work. We want to tailor it to the things 
they need."

Leader 

Student Alumni Board member, chapter officer balances 
studies, activities, receives recognition with Wildcat pride 



to taking 17 credit hours during the fall 
semester to pursue two minors — leadership studies and 
Spanish, Mandy Achilles, junior in mass communication, 
was an active member of Alpha Delta Pi and several campus 
organizations. 

"I make a lot of lists, that's my number one key to time 
management," she said. "I just fit everything in. I make time 
for everything, so I guess that's how I balance. I like to be 
busy." 

An ADPi officer, Achilles was often busy with work 
for the sorority house in addition to her studies and other 
activities. 

"She's an awesome girl," Jill Westoff, rush chair and senior 
in biology, said. "She's very dedicated and works really hard 
at everything she does." 

Achilles said attending K- State was something she almost 
did not do. 

"I was actually set on going to Butler County (Community 
College)," she said. "I never took a campus visit to K- State.

Toward the middle of my senior year, I thought I needed to go 
out and just start right from the beginning and go somewhere 
big. I decided this was going to be a better step for me, and I 
am so glad I did." 

Achilles's decision to attend K-State brought her 
opportunities and recognition. She was named one of two 
2002 student ambassadors at the Homecoming football game, 
Nov. 9. 

"For me it's a huge deal because it's what I love to do," 
Achilles said. "Everyone was excited for me. It was so cool 
to be on the football field. That was just so awesome and it 
was just another one of those K- State memories that I will 
never forget." 

In addition to student ambassador, Achilles was a member 
of the Student Alumni Board. Mitzi Frieling, associate director 
of alumni programs, said Achilles served in multiple roles at 
the KSU Alumni Association. 

"She is a good person with a good work ethic who loves 
K- State," Frieling said. "She is a wonderful asset to have."

Men undertake a Kansas Kickoff Show in Topeka by organizing 
their first-ever cattle show in cooperation with Block & Bridle Club 



THE FACT THEY HAD never attempted the task did not 
stop Alpha Gamma Rho from organizing a cattle show. 

"We tried to hook something to K- State with a cattle show 
because we are pretty ag-related around here," Benjamin 
Winsor, sophomore in agricultural communication and 
journalism, said. "We wanted something that could make 
people think, 'gosh, that was a fun time.'" 

The men discussed the idea of a cattle show for more than 
a year before deciding to arrange the event for Feb. 14. 

"This has been in the making ever since I started school," 
Winsor said. "It's something we didn't want to rush into." 

Members planned to repeat the event annually as a way 
to promote the chapter. 

"I think it'll bring some attention to K- State as well as 
AGR," Timothy McClelland, junior in accounting, said. "It 
all came down to it being a good PR tool." 

Brandon New, senior in animal sciences and industry, 
said high numbers of cattle, sponsors and participants made 
the show a success. 




"We set a goal to get 200 head of steer and heifers," he said. 
"We've been contacting breeders in the state and asking them 
if they'd like to contribute." 

Ties to AGR and Block & Bridle increased funding. 

"We started by contacting former members of those 
clubs," Winsor said. "Then we branched out and contacted 
major companies." 

AGR furnished prizes, including $ 1,000 savings bonds, for 
winners in each contest — steer and heifer — Winsor said. 

"This is a competition," Winsor said. "People hear about 
that $1,000 savings bond, and they're interested." 

Using the power of cash prizes to draw a larger crowd, 
New said the show started as a way to gain recognition among 
other chapters sponsoring similar events. 

"There are several AGR chapters in the Midwest, and 
across the nation, that have shows like this," New said. "They 
have great success, and we wanted to be involved." 

Serving as a promotional tool for AGR, Winsor said the 
moral behind showing cattle was mainly about fun.

winning recognition 

Men bring home the^vnderson Gold Communication Award 



ORT to communicate with alumni, the men 
of Alpha Tau Omega created an in-depth chapter magazine 
recognized at the national level. 

At ATO National Congress, the K- State chapter received 
the Anderson Gold Communication Award for their Web site 
and alumni magazine, The Vintage. 

"(Communication) is a major facet of what we do," said 
Richard Harrison, 2002 Vintage editor and senior in civil 
engineering. "I don't think anyone else puts that kind of 
time and effort into a publication like we do." 

Published once per semester, The Vintage was the work 
of active members and alumni. The magazine featured ATO 
philanthropies, social activities, intramurals and awards. 

Harrison said the magazine's purpose included keeping in 
touch with alumni, increasing morale and reminiscing. 

"It's phenomenal how everyone gets together and puts 
out a magazine," said Erik Ankrom, assistant communication 
officer and junior in management information systems. "It 
just amounts to everybody doing their daily thing." 

The magazine, mailed to alumni, became available online 
to members and parents in spring 2002.

Ankrom, ATO's Web engineer, maintained the Web site 
and was chiefly responsible for The Vintage's placement 
online. Ankrom and Harrison agreed condensing and 
formatting The Vintage for Web publication was one of their 
biggest accomplishments. 

"It was tricky to get it online," Ankrom said, "but it gives 
you a chance to show off your creative abilities." 

The award recognized ATO's chapter Web site. Ankrom 
said all ATO officers and William Muir, chapter adviser and 
assistant vice president of institutional advancement, assumed 
responsibility for the site's content. 

"It amounts to everybody chipping in," Ankrom said. 
"The guys are willing to help." 

HarrisonsaidATO'snationallyrecognizedcommunication 
skills came from a desire to give back to their alumni. 

"We take great pride in the magazine because we realize 
the need to communicate thoroughly with all of our alumni," 
Brian Hall, junior in biology and 2003 editor, said. "I think 
The Vintage is a great way to show all of our alumni that we 
want to keep them informed of what is currently going on in 
our chapter."

Kaup, building corporation president, said. "We wouldn't 
have to worry about that with a scanner. You always have 
your finger with you." 

The system, designed to be simple, consisted only of a 
palm-sized scanning panel electronically connected to the 
door's lock and a backup power source. People using the 
system had to first scan their fingerprint into the central 
computer. Then the data was taken to the print scanners and 
uploaded. 

House members simply touched the panel with their 
finger, waited for a green light and entered. 

"It has been really nice," Shelley Mclver, junior in 
elementary education, said. "It's a lot easier not having to 
remember a code to get in the house."

little sisters 

Program gives fraternity a chance to mentor, form 
friendships with college women, enjoy activities 



Active since the 1970s, Beta Sigma Psi Little Sister program 
offered fraternity members, as well as the participating 
women, an opportunity to meet and get to know each other 
while participating in activities and volunteer programs. 

Women Little Sisters were paired up with men from the 
fraternity — called Big Brothers. This allowed for more one- 
on-one communication and bonding. 

"The Little Sis program is a service program but they 
also get to participate in activities including a formal, messy 
Olympics and others," Mark Buxton, junior in horticulture, 
said. "I basically represent the house and oversee the Little Sis 
meetings as well as keep them informed about what is going 
on in the house." 

The Little Sister group, which met twice a month, grew to 
24 women, more than double what it had been in past years. 



"We recruit by placing an ad in the Collegian the first three 
days of the year, along with posting fliers and a lot of word of 
mouth," Buxton said. "We have worked hard recruiting." 

Haley Roberts, Little Sister president and junior in political 
science, helped organize events and run meetings. 

"It is mainly a social thing," Roberts said. "It is an excellent 
opportunity to meet people, especially as a freshman." 

The Little Sisters in the program said they enjoyed learning 
about others as well as themselves. 

"Meeting guys and getting to know them without having 
to impress anyone is one of the main positives," Jacqueline 
Moore, freshman in architecture, said. "It is fun to be able 
to just be yourself and act ornery with the guys if you want. 
I have gotten to know the guys better this way where there 
isn't any pressure."

beta theta pi 




Fraternity members decorate house, provide evening of fright 

to raise money, food for Heart Strings Community Service, Breadbasket 



to pearly gates, the second 
annual Beta Theta Pi haunted house was innovative. 

Based on the Edge of Hell haunted house, located in Kansas 
City, Mo., Betas incorporated their own ideas, Christopher 
Mirakian, junior in business administration, said. Where the 
Kansas City house featured a bridge, Betas used crates for a 
similar effect. 

"We didn't have as large of a budget as theirs," Mirakian 
said. "We had to adapt. " 

The Betas spent $300 of the $450 allotted budget. 

Planning took one month and actual work on the haunted 
house began at noon Oct. 31. Members spent six hours 
organizing and decorating the four floors of the house, Peter 
Carter, president and senior in biology, said. 

"We had a heaven -to -hell theme," Carter said. "People 
went in the front door down to the basement. The basement 
was hell, decorated in red with a devil." 

The kitchen was turned into a torture room with an 
operation in progress. 



On the main floor, a rave room lined with red made it 
difficult for people to find the entrances and exits. 

"It was a crazy room with strobe lights and techno music, 
so people got lost in there," Carter said. "Then there was a 
spooky room with dead bodies, and then a graveyard room 
with vines and grave stones and a wooden bridge." 

The second floor, or earth level, was completely dark, with 
people jumping out at visitors. 

The third floor, all white and lined with toilet paper, was 
filled with ghosts. Gates to heaven stood at the end of the 
hallway. 

Approximately 300 people went through the haunted 
house, making it a success, said Joel Gentry, philanthropy 
chair and sophomore in open -option. Visitors had the option 
of donating cans of food or a $2 -admission charge. 

"We collected 359 pounds of food for the Manhattan 
Breadbasket," Gentry said. "We also raised over $600 for 
our philanthropy, which was Heart Strings Community 
Service."

Sorority women coach several fraternities 
in annual fall philanthropy to raise funds 



Greek organizations congregated for the 15th annual 
Pledge Games Sept. 22. But one sorority did not participate 
in the competition. 

Chi Omega women staffed the event and raised $14,000 
for the American Red Cross. 

"Our main (philanthropy event) is the Pledge Games," said 
Ashley Holmes, philanthropy chair and senior in psychology. 
"It's a long day and it goes by fast, but it's definitely worth 
it." 

The games took place at Memorial Stadium. Since it was 
early in the school year, Holmes said the event also served as 
a chance to get to know others. 

"It's a good opportunity for new members to get to meet 
each other," Holmes said. "It shows them what K- State's 
about." 

Lindsay Friess, freshman in pre-health, agreed with 
Holmes and said the event, which was a good time to meet 
people, benefited a worthy organization. 



"There was nothing bad about it so I have no reason not 
to do it again," Friess said. "Being for a good cause made it 
better." 

Lauren Bakian, freshman in engineering and the Phi 
Gamma Delta pledge coach, said the event would have been 
chaos without the coaches. 

"We go and wake them up in the morning and bring 
them juice and doughnuts," Bakian said. "It helped get them 
awake." 

Bakian said the games fit her personality. 

"I'm really energetic and that's what I love," she said. 
"It was a blast. I liked the tug- of- war because everyone was 
totally into it." 

During the tug- of- war event, only a baby swimming pool 
separated the two teams. 

"My favorite event was watching the tug- of- war," Friess 
said. "I liked it when the people who lost fell in the pool and 
got wet."

informal rush 



j§ Members personalize rush events 
ja* with small, informal recreation night 



An evening of bowling, shooting pool and eating pizza 
helped Delta Chi men get to know potential members during 
a Dec. 14 rush event. 

"We try to show the rushees the brotherhood," Clint 
Bradbury, junior in mass communication, said. "We just try 
to get everybody involved." 

Rather than coordinate a formal event, the Delta 
Chis organized a laid-back evening, which allowed more 
opportunity to get to know and mingle with potential 
members. 

"They're (rush events) pretty informal," Jacob Nelson, 
junior in sociology, said. "We just like to talk and get to know 
what kind of guys they are." 

Eight potential members attended the rush event, which 
was the first recruiting event for the school year. Bradbury, 
who organized the evening, said the men tried to avoid larger 
events. 

"We like to keep our rush events kind of small," Kenneth 



Shear, junior in management information systems, said. 
"We feel like we can get to know the rushees better in small 
groups." 

Shear said the smaller turnout helped men form stronger 
relationships. 

"We become better friends with them," he said. "Then we 
try to rush them through the house as friends." 

Recruiting was a year-long process, and the men planned 
several rush events, including paintballing, a Kansas City 
Royals' baseball game and traveling to Wichita Feb. 1 to see 
a hockey game and eat at Hooters. 

"We try to appeal to a lot of guys," Bradbury said. "Rush 
is what we do all year." 

Nelson said recruitment was an important part 
in maintaining the quality and quantity of fraternity 
membership. 

"Rush drives the house," Nelson said. "You have to have 
a good rush to get good guys."

Sorority women spread holiday joy To others 




LIDAY season gave Delta Delta Delta 
women an opportunity to decorate and have fun. 

Their annual Christmas party, named Pine Party, allowed 
women to share holiday cheer and spirit. 

"It is the time of year that we get together and help our 
house mother decorate," Kari Baldonado, junior in open- 
option, said. "We invite neighbors, friends, family, boyfriends 
and anyone who wants to come." 

The women decorated in groups. 

"It's really fun because we decorate specific areas of the 
house as a pledge class," Baldonado said. "The seniors always 
do the tree, so that is what everyone is waiting for." 

Members enjoyed baking and entertaining guests, 
Baldonado said. 

"We decorate cookies and have cider and punch," she said, 
"Once we are finished preparing, our guests come over." 

Baldonado said members offered a traditional gift- 
exchange, but Pine Party functioned for Tri-Delts to get to 
know others and enjoy each other's company. 

"It was really nice to get dressed up and relax," Megan 
McPheter, senior in finance, said. "It reminded everyone that 



finals were around the corner, but that there was still time to 
relax and enjoy the holiday season." 

The party was a tradition members enjoyed prior to their 
personal seasonal celebrations. 

"It's sentimental," Georgia Mulligan, junior in mass 
communication, said. "Some of the girls graduate in December 
and it's the last thing we do as a house." 

During Pine Party, Tri-Delts surprised their house 
mother, Karen Robbins, with a gift certificate to Manhattan 
Town Center. 

"Our house mom means so much to us," Mulligan said. 
"She gets emotional when we do things like that, and it makes 
us emotional, too." 

After touring the house and eating cookies, members 
and guests ended the evening by caroling around the 
neighborhood. 

"We sang songs like 'Jingle Bells' and 'Deck the Halls,'" 
Megan Bonewitz, senior in elementary education, said. "We 
go caroling to the sororities and fraternities around ours, and 
to the neighbors that have been supportive, kind of to repay 
them for just being our neighbors."

the road to the bowl 

Fraternity men pitch in to help the Junior League raise money 



WITH SPONSORS who usually helped with fund -raisers 
for philanthropy events commited to other projects, Delta 
Sigma Phi changed their plan and stepped into a volunteer 
position. 

"We wanted to find a charity that we could make into 
a kind of tradition for the house," R. Scott Tatro, junior in 
management information systems, said. "We went to see if 
we could get any sponsorship from local businesses, but they 
were pretty much all sponsored out." 

However, the Junior League needed help to run its Road 
to the Bowl campaign. 

"The Junior League is a national women's organization 
that raises money to fund smaller charities," Arnold Ferry, 
house adviser, said. "We just gave them the manpower they 
needed for their program." 

Road to the Bowl was a fund-raising effort in which men 
sold raffle tickets at booths in front of Varney's Book Store on 
football game days. Each ticket was a chance to win an all- 
expenses-paid trip to the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl. 

Each member volunteered for a two -hour time slot to sell 
tickets; pledges took two slots apiece. At four shifts per game, 




the Delta Sigs donated more than 140 hours, Tatro said. 

Delta Sigs benefited from attention the campaign brought 
to the fraternity. 

"Since we were such a big supporter of the Junior League, 
we got to do a lot of publicity on the radio," Tatro said. "It 
turned out to be a big rush tool." 

The campaign raised $2,000, which the Junior League 
distributed to smaller charities in need of financial support, 
Ferry said. 

"This was a great philanthropy," he said. "It wasn't just 
about charity. It got the whole community involved and 
excited." 

The Junior League was grateful for help on the project, 
Lori Lavin, Road to the Bowl committee chair, said. 

"(Delta Sigs) provided all the manpower we needed and 
more," she said. "They were responsible for 50 percent of the 
funds we raised." 

The men were glad to have found a rewarding cause to 
support, Tatro said. 

"We really enjoyed helping them out," he said. "We hope 
to continue this in years to come, as long as they'll have us."

toys for tots 

Members collect donations, personal funds 
to purchase toys for less fortunate children 



A bike, an electric- toy guitar, race car sets, a toy- beauty 
salon and toy- dish sets comprised a few items Delta Tau 
Delta members donated to the Manhattan area Toys for Tots 
program. 

Andy Fogel, Delt philanthropy chair and sophomore in 
business administration, said the fraternity expanded its 
philanthropy because members were excited to participate 
in the toy drive. 

"We all grew up having great Christmases," Aaron Leiker, 
junior in mass communication, said. "We all want other kids 
to have good Christmases, too." 

Delts collected toys for the charity in three ways. 

Fogel asked sororities to donate toys as well. 

The women had a month to gather items before the Delts 
collected and counted the bags of toys. The sororities donated 
nearly 150 toys for the philanthropy. 

Delts set up a booth outside K-B Toys in Manhattan 
Town Center to encourage shoppers to donate. Fogel said 
this collection effort gained 50 toys. 

In the final contribution to the philanthropy, each Delt 
donated $15 to purchase additional toys for the program. 

K-B Toys gave the fraternity 20 percent off all toys, and 
opened an hour before normal store hours Dec. 15 so the 



men could shop. 

Fogel, Leiker, and Kevin Knapp, sophomore in business 
administration, shopped with the money members donated — 
more than $500. By the end of the philanthropy, a mound of 
toys piled in the Delt house. 

"The guys are just in awe of the amount and quality of 
the toys," Leiker said. 

The philanthropy was bigger and better than the 
year before, Ryan Weber, former philanthropy chair and 
sophomore in marketing, said. 

Weber said formerly members contributed $5-10 apiece 
and didn't have as much sorority participation, but Toys for 
Tots still appreciated their contributions. 

"I remember how thankful they were because we came 
through for them," Weber said. "Last year the corporate 
sponsor didn't come through, so those kids wouldn't have 
had any presents." 

Delts were not allowed to distribute the toys to the children 
because of confidentiality restrictions, but Leiker said the 
fraternity still enjoyed helping out. 

"I'd love to see the kids' faces light up when they see their 
toys, but under the circumstances I definitely understand," 
he said. "We're just happy to donate."

delta upsilon 



j irreplaceable 

* Fraternity members vote to complete house mother's 



£ 



duties rather than fill the vacated position 



Managing without a house mother for more than 25 
years, members of Delta Upsilon did not find the thought 
of living without one unusual — until the 2001 arrival and 
2002 departure of Connie Coleman. Her absence significantly 
affected DU members, Aaron Siders, senior in management, 
said. 

"She was amazing," Siders said. "She did so much for the 
house. She was the best possible person we could have gotten 
for a house mom." 

Spring 2003, Coleman resigned to pursue a job in Salina, 
Kan. 

The idea of replacing her was unthinkable, Siders said, 
but that was not the only reason behind the decision to go 
without a house mother. 

"The mortgage is high, of course, and we could save some 
money by not looking for a replacement," he said. "Plus, we 
could never find one who would measure up." 

Coleman fulfilled different roles in the fraternity, and after 



she left, those roles had to be filled by someone else. 

"Some of the officers took over the stuff she did, like 
teaching etiquette and keeping a photograph album of 
everything," Aaron Sloup, president and junior in computer 
science, said. "We still kind of need (a house mother), but we 
can cover everything OK." 

Finding a new house mother might have still been an 
option, but there were several factors to be considered before 
deciding. 

"We had a great house mom," Sloup said. "We don't just 
want a filler." 

Before the house could vote on a replacement, Terry 
Kershner, academic adviser, had to provide a list of candidates 
he had reviewed. He said screening was not an easy process. 

"Personality is the biggest factor," Kershner said. "They 
have to be able to understand college boys. After Connie, I 
just didn't think any of the candidates were dynamic 
enough."

Men unite on Sunday nights for higher level of praise, 
worship, community involvement 



pulsed through the corridors of All 
Faiths Chapel as K- State students joined hands in praise and 
worship. 

FarmHouse men began Sunday night praise and worship 
sessions early December with more than 100 attendants at 
the first gathering. 

"The main idea is that we don't want the focus on just us," 
Jason Graves, sophomore in horticulture, said. "We want it to 
be on Christ. Our vision is to enter into the worship — that's 
our heart's desire." 

Graves, who helped organize the event, said after the idea 
was formed it took a year for formal preparation and behind- 
the-scenes planning. 

"A lot of funds were donated toward equipment," Graves 
said. "People have been very helpful and the guys in the house 
have been very generous." 

Graves said the program was fairly inexpensive to produce 
because of donated equipment from the Farmers. 

The equipment, needed for the live band, included two 



acoustic guitars, a bass guitar, a jambeau and singers. 

The gatherings, open to anyone who wanted to attend, 
occurred two-to-three times a month. Each session was one 
hour long with 45 minutes focused on praise and worship. The 
remaining time was devoted to scripture reading and prayer 
led by one of eight leaders. 

"We want people to come and forget about everything," 
Daniel Munden, junior in agronomy, said. "We want them to 
come to worship the Lord and focus on Him." 

Munden said the Farmers were excited about the praise 
and worship sessions. 

"This year we had enough people who wanted to do it," 
Lance Stafford, senior in elementary education, said. "We had 
a combination of factors that worked for us." 

Stafford said it worked because everyone was focused and 
willing to put forth the extra effort. 

"We aren't really in it to benefit," Stafford said. "The 
biggest benefit is for people to show up and enjoy the praise 
and worship."

bond girls 

Sorority members spend time away from routine 
to get to know eaeh other, deepen relationships 



Promoting bonding and sisterhood, members of Gamma 
Phi Beta participated in Loyalty Circle. 

Emily Fagan, education vice president and senior in 
elementary education, assigned a woman from each pledge 
class in one of 12 groups. 

Fagan said she tried to keep an equal amount of women 
from each pledge class together, but it was not always possible 
because of differing numbers. 

"This was just a thing where the girls went out and did 
something with each other," Fagan said. "They could do 
anything they wanted — go out to eat or go to movies. Some 
went caroling to girls who lived out of the house." 

Stephanie Foreman, freshman in psychology, said she 
was able to meet an array of people by participating in the 
circle. 

"I like that we get one -on -one time to spend with the 
other girls in our group," Foreman said. "Besides meeting 




the other girls, participating in the Loyalty Circle provides 
a good chance to practice fellowship with members of the 
sorority." 

The circle provided a good opportunity for the juniors 
and seniors of the house to meet and get to know the 
underclassmen, Brooklyn Cleveland, junior in apparel 
marketing and design, said. 

"We are set up with a lot of girls we hadn't been able to 
yet interact with," Cleveland said. "It's a great opportunity 
for us to meet our sisters who aren't in the same pledge class 
as we are." 

In addition to bonding, the women were honored for 
event originality. 

At the end of each month, the group with the most creative 
activity during the month received a prize. 

"Trying to come up with something original is the best 
part," Fagan said. "We always want to win the prize."

gifts for the needy 

Sorority members collect gifts for underprivileged famnie 



with friends and loved ones 
was a time-honored tradition during the holiday season, but 
the women of Kappa Alpha Theta decided to give to those in 
need as well. 

Through local programs — Toys for Tots and Adopt a 
Family — members took their normal gift budget, pooled 
their money and provided needed gifts for Manhattan's less 
fortunate. 

"This is the second year I have participated with Adopt a 
Family," Lindsey George, sophomore in agriculture education, 
said. "If we exchange gifts with each other, we spend the same 
amount. This way we can pool our money and get what they 
need." 

The gifts were tailored to each family's needs. 

"We have a list that ranges from silverware to toys for 
children," George said. "Last year we were able to help two 



families. This year we just chose to do one." 

From socks, hats and gloves to games for children young 
and old, one program offered the Thetas a chance to help out 
a fraternity's philanthropy. 

"This year we are doing Toys for Tots with a partnering 
fraternity because it is their philanthropy," Lindsay Walter, 
senior in music education, said. "We will just go to the store 
and buy the gifts and then wrap them as a group." 

Theta members who lived both in and out of house took 
part in the experience. 

"A lot of fifth year seniors, who are no longer active or 
just alums that live nearby, come back and participate with 
their pledge families," Beth Ludlum, senior in agricultural 
communication and journalism, said. "Pledge daughters, 
moms, grandmas and great- grandmas form a group and they 
enjoy going and buying gifts for others in Manhattan."

Out of respect, admiration sorority women organize 
engagement shower for house mother, welcome house father 



of Kappa Kappa Gamma organized a 
wedding shower Nov. 17 to celebrate house mother Michelle 
Alexander's engagement and wedding to Darell Edie. 

The members took time out of their schedules to show 
appreciation and respect for their house mother, said Amy 
Metsker, president and senior in speech. 

"We really just asked her what she wanted to do," Metsker 
said. "We wanted to honor her." 

The shower included cake, punch, gifts and stories of how 
the couple met and became engaged. 

"Michelle was really excited and open to it," Katrina Boese, 
senior in elementary education, said. "She said a million thank 
yous to all of us." 

After the Dec. 14 wedding, Kappas became the first 
national chapter to have a house father. 

Boese said it was pleasant having two people care about 
the house. 

"It makes it even more like a complete family," Boese said. 
"He comes over all the time, so it won't be weird to have a

man in the house." 

After the engagement, Edie went to the house to meet the 
girls. They appreciated that he cared about them, Alexander, 
senior in elementary education, said. 

"The girls seem eager to have a male presence there to 
protect them," she said. "They think the whole concept of 
having house parents is a good concept." 

After their previous house mother resigned, Alexander 
became house mother during the summer, a position the 
Kappas needed filled before rush events began. 

"They were in a jam, with it being the middle of the 
summer," Alexander said. "They needed someone in the 
house before Aug. 10." 

Though the Kappas had a short time to get to know 
their house mother before the shower, there was a sense of 
admiration. 

"She's kind of our encourager," Boese said, "She always 
says encouraging things. There's a respect between her and 
the girls in the house."

Philanthropy project provides enjoyment, camaraderie 
for participants, raises funds for Breadbasket 



Rice and Jacob Walker 




HA was more than an organization 
and a place to live. For the 65 members it provided a home 
and family. 

"We do a lot as a house," Zach Baker, sophomore in 
business administration, said. "We support each other in a 
lot of things." 

Through philanthropy projects, the brothers spent time 
helping others. One event, the Watermelon Bust, gave a lasting 
impression because of the fun and camaraderie it provided 
for participating members. 

"It was a blast," Brian Burley, sophomore in industrial 
engineering, said. "It was also a good time because we knew 
that we were helping people, and it was a great time to hang 
out with the guys in the house and get to know the new 



members." 

The event raised money for the Flint Hills Breadbasket. 

"Since we live here and are part of the community, we feel 
we need to give something back," William Buchanan, junior 
in mechanical engineering, said. "Plus, it's a lot of fun." 

All the events — Twister, seed spitting, relays and an 
obstacle course — included juicy watermelons. 

For the annual event, house members coached each 
sorority that participated. 

Lambda Chis participated as team coaches. 

"We get to interact with the sororities," Buchanan said. 
"Almost all the sororities participate, so it's a good chance for 
us to get to know other people in the greek system and get to 
do fun things with watermelons."

focus on fitness 

Women organize exercise program for group involvement 



T to promote fitness and socialization, Delta 
Sigma Theta created the Delta- cise program. 

The week-long event invited students to programs at the 
Chester E. Peters Recreation Complex. 

"Delta- cise is not just for women or our organization," 
Kelly Williams, president and senior in psychology, said. "It 
is open to anyone on campus." 

The sorority focused on five points of public service — one 
was health. 

Sept. 23 -27, Delta Sigma Theta organized group activities 
for weight-loss. 

To promote the event, fliers were handed out at the K- State 
Student Union and information passed by word-of-mouth 
through Black Student Union members. 

The week began with individual assessments at the 
Wellness Center, where each participant scheduled a unique 
fitness plan tailored to their expectations. 

"I enjoyed going to the Wellness Center," Krista Freeman, 
sophomore in apparel marketing and design, said. "It's a good 
way to figure out your own weaknesses and what you need 
to work on." 

Tuesday and Wednesday the group participated in the 
Kickboxing Combo and Step Aerobics classes, respectively. 

Though Delta Sigma Theta originally planned to offer 



private classes, the single - digit participation was not adequate 
enough to hold reserved sessions, Williams said. 

Continuing group activities Thursday and Friday, 
participants focused on individual programs. 

Pairs socialized while jogging on the indoor track or 
using the aerobic-fitness machines while following their 
pre-determined workout schedule. 

"Having people work out with you helps," Freeman said. 
"When you're doing strenuous things, talking takes your mind 
off how tired you are." 

Morgan Fisher, senior in management, said the peer 
support encouraged her to continue exercising. 

"Delta- cise definitely helped me realize exercise really is 
a daily routine," she said. 

Because a second focus of public service was international 
awareness and involvment, the fitness week was planned in 
conjunction with the Race for Humanity, Sept. 28. 

Although the first Delta -cise turnout was lower than 
expected, Williams said many of the participants continued 
to work out together and the sorority hoped to offer the 
program once each semester. 

"Losing weight is a life- changing event," Williams said. "A 
lot of us wait until spring break or New Year's to try and lose 
weight. We tried to challenge people to start sooner."

Fraternity members organize an afternoon of fun and games ml 
for local children in the Boys & Girls Clubs of America 



.ECTING their commitment to and enjoyment of 
community service, and working with children, Phi Delta 
Theta men organized a field day for children from the Boys 
& Girls Club of America, Oct. 10. 

Men set up a basketball free throw, flying- disc toss, three- 
legged race, long jump, football and a water- balloon toss. 

The winners of the basketball, flying- disc and football 
games received the contests' respective playing equipment 
as prizes. 

"I never saw a kid who wasn't happy," Nicholas Hunter, 
junior in sociology, said. "I don't think they expected it." 

House members divided into teams of two or three to 
oversee the events. All the men enjoyed working the events, 
William Tate, philanthropy chair and senior in political 



science, said. 

"We're all for community service events," Michael Arlesic, 
president and junior in management information systems, 
said. "No one has a problem helping out with kids." 

The event was valuable to the children as well, because it 
provided good examples of college experiences. 

"They benefited from having positive role models 
— especially college students," Tate said. "It's good for them 
to see people around them who are successful and going to 
college." 

Hunter said the goal of the field day was simple: to go out 
and have a good time. 

"You learn to give of yourself — to give to society," Tate 
said. "It's a good thing."

Kruse control 



§ Junior sets model example for house, joins health-related 
%> clubs to advance career in medicine 



At school he was a self-proclaimed geek. He participated 
in extracurricular activities and stepped into leadership roles 
when needed. 

Phi Gamma Delta's Dustin Kruse, junior in microbiology, 
always put people first, Kurt Niebuhr, house president and 
senior in industrial engineering, said. 

"The one thing I have noticed about Dustin is that hardly 
anyone knows he is involved in all these things," Niebuhr said. 
"This shows me that he is not doing it for the recognition, but 
he genuinely likes helping others. 

"Even as a sophomore, he is a great role model for our 
house and the greek community as a whole." 

Kruse was primarily involved with the American Red 
Cross Club and was selected to the Red Cross Disaster Action 
Team. Duties included responding to single-family fires and 
helping counsel victims of tragedy. 

"I just like stuff like that — helping people," Kruse said. 
"I'm a pre-med major, but seeing these situations with families 
traumatized by something, and helping them out, you learn 
how to deal with situations like that." 

With a cellular phone to contact the Riley County 
Fire Department and pager from the Riley County Police 



Department, Kruse spent most days on call from 4:30 p.m. 
to 8:30 a.m. 

"Knowing you have the ability to help other people 
seems to pull people into the Red Cross," Abigail Maze, club 
president and senior in biology, said. "A motivated person 
like Dustin makes a difference knowing the knowledge he 
has could help other people." 

With 17 credit hours during the fall semester in addition 
to his extracurricular activities, Kruse studied microbiology 
and planned to attend medical school. 

"I like microbiology better than plain biology because 
I like seeing things at the beginning levels," Kruse said. "It 
just amazes me how all that works out and just how a sub- 
organism, like bacteria, does all that stuff. I'm kind of geeky 
that way." 

Although the number of hours spent on activities slowed 
him down at times, it was the lack of extra time that kept him 
going, Kruse said. 

"I don't like having a bunch of free time," he said. "I don't 
like just sitting there. I think if you're on the go and you have 
stuff to do, it's just gonna keep you motivated across the 
board."

weekend getaway 

Semi-annual retreat strengthens fraternity focus 



G, goal setting and fun filled Phi Kappa Theta's 
retreat the first weekend in December. 

The twice -yearly event, Quo Vadis, aimed at finding the 
fraternity's strengths and weaknesses. 

"It is the only time every guy spends time together," Paul 
Restivo, junior in secondary education, said. "We come up 
with a plan of attack for the year, a goal list and then try to 
meet all our goals." 

The retreat, at a member's home in Concord, Kan., was 
an opportunity for members to reflect on the year's good and 
bad moments and get a breath of fresh air. 

"It gets us out of the house," Restivo said, "away from 
Manhattan and cell phones." 

Isolation allowed Phi Kaps to focus things about the house, 
Jonathan Kasper, sophomore in history, said. 



"The retreat is definitely positive," Kasper said. "You gain 
a sense of direction and a positive outlook on things." 

Members split into smaller groups to discuss recruitment, 
socials and scholarships. 

"It wasn't just a sit down and talk," Alexander Rossow, 
senior in history, said. "We also played games." 

Along with fun and games, the men focused on issues 
such as house unity. 

"This year there was more commitment and more pride 
than I've seen in the past three years since I've been in the 
house," Restivo said. 

After arriving home Saturday evening, Restivo said there 
was a positive feeling between everyone. 

"The guys were really pumped up at the house," he said. 
"They liked the way things are going now."

College football team, Royals, KU fraternity help sorority 
remember member, create foundation 



PI BETA PHI member Alexandra Kemp was killed lune 
18 while working at a swimming pool in Leawood, Kan. Her 
sorority sisters created the Ali Kemp Education Foundation in 
her memory to educate women about violence and rape. 

Teaming up with the Kansas City Royals, K- State Wildcats 
and University of Kansas Jayhawks, Pi Phis raised $2,000 for 
an in-house scholarship and continuing safety education. 

During the summer, the Royals participated in the Pi Phi 
car wash in Leawood by giving autographs and signing "Rally 
for Ali" T-shirts. 

"We let them know what was going on and they were more 
than willing to help us," said Lindsay Courtney, sophomore 
in human ecology and Kemp's close friend. 

In November, Run to Remember Ali combined the efforts 
of Pi Phi and KU's Sigma Alpha Epsilon, the fraternity of 
Kemp's boyfriend, Phil Howes. 

Pi Phis started the run in Manhattan with a football signed 
by members of the Wildcat football team. The women drove 
the football to Lawrence where KU Sig Eps joined them with 
a football signed by the layhawk football team. 

Pi Phi and Sig Ep members solicited pledges from 
businesses and neighbors for the distance traveled. 

The two team footballs were added to two signed by 
members of both houses and presented to the Kemp family 
during the K- State versus KU football game, Nov. 2. 




"There have been many fund-raisers and events for Ali," 
Breanne Paul, president and senior in nutritional sciences, 
said. "This touched us more by far." 

At the start of the fall semester, Pi Phis performed a candle 
lighting dedicated to Kemp. 

"We're just trying to remember Ali — her life and spirit," 
Paul said. "We want other people to know who she was." 

Nov. 17, Pi Phis organized a mandatory self-defense 
workshop to educate about self-protection, Paul said. 

Tara Hull, volunteer at the Women's Crisis Center, 
presented the workshop. 

"She told us ways to live our normal lives without 
putting ourselves at risk," Alb/son Wray, junior in interior 
architecture, said. "We had a lot of people scared. Everyone 
was able to take something tangible — new ideas, techniques, 
ways to keep safe." 

Wray said the handouts and information given in the 
workshop empowered Pi Phis to believe in each other and 
protect themselves emotionally and physically. 

Pi Phis raised awareness and funds for the foundation 
through donations, concerts and "Ali Forever" T-shirts. 

"Ali was my best friend," Courtney said. "My life has 
changed forever, but I've also realized how many other great 
friends I have. We are doing everything we can to keep her 
memory alive."

Members maintain activities, relationships without communal house 



I] the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house, 2021 
College View Road, was damaged by a space heater fire. 

During the 2001- 2002 school year, the men rented the 
Sigma Sigma Sigma house at 1545 Denison Ave. 

Fall 2002 and spring 2003 Pikes were houseless. Members 
rented apartments and pledges lived in the residence halls. 

Because the chapter house was still damaged from the fire 
and Pikes wanted to put more money toward renovation, so 
members went without a house, Matthew Wertzberger, senior 
in hotel and restaurant management, said. 

"We had been planning on a renovation for a long time," 
Chris Graham, president and junior in accounting, said. "The 
fire was the event that made us realize that the time for the 
renovation was now." 

The total renovation included new fire exits, room 
alterations and changes to the exterior of the building. Graham 
said much of the $750,000 needed came from alumni. 

"We have some great alumni who have really come through 
in assuring that the Pikes will remain a fixture on the Kansas 
State campus," he said. "(But) the undergraduates have played 
a huge role in the renovation. Some of us have written out

pledges to donate money when we are out on our own." 

Phase one of the renovation started January 2003 and was 
scheduled to end in August. Graham said the men planned to 
move back in at that time. 

Despite functioning without a central meeting and living 
unit, Pikes stayed involved, Wertzberger said. 

"We have worked together to remain close," Graham said. 
"It's really hard living all over Manhattan." 

To maintain group involvement and activities, Graham 
said the men increased their social programming. 

"The actives are good at making everyone feel 
involved," Ryan McKenny, pledge and freshman in business 
administration, said. "Chris (Graham) is always offering us 
to come over (to his apartment) whenever we want." 

Besides raising money for renovations and maintaining 
active memberships, Pikes had a big hand in cleaning up the 
house to prepare for construction, McKenny said. 

"I think Pikes here have shown that they really care about 
the brotherhood offered by the fraternity," Graham said. 
"They want to see that brotherhood carry on for generations 
to come."

helping hand 

Men assist children with disabilities through philanthropy 



to place more emphasis on their 
philanthropy, 12 members of Pi Kappa Phi adopted Push 
America, a national outreach program specific to Pi Kap 
chapters, which helps citizens with disabilities. 

The mission of Push was three-fold: to raise awareness 
about children with disabilities, to raise money for 
handicapped- accessible facilities and to provide services for 
those with disabilities. 

"They encourage us to get involved and raise money to 
help them fund wheelchair- accessible playgrounds," said Sean 
McGivern, chapter president and senior in political science. 
"They also encourage us help people with disabilities in our 
own community." 

Members visited two Manhattan schools, Frank Bergman 
Elementary School and Lee School, to help children with 
homework and spend time with them. 

"The guys really enjoy it," Keith Richards, Push chairman 
and junior in business administration, said. "Some are 
skeptical in the beginning because it's not easy to work with 
disabled kids sometimes. You have to interact with them in a 
different way, and sometimes that frightens people, but (the

kids) are just like anybody else." 

Dee McKee, Manhattan- Ogden USD 383 director of 
special services, made arrangements with the Pi Kaps. 

"The principals they have been working with have been 
pleased so far," McKee said. "They always like volunteers." 

McGivern said the children responded positively to the 
program. 

"They're used to the paras and teachers," McGivern said. 
"It's nice for them to have a big kid helping out. We're on their 
side — they can relate to us a little better." 

Once they worked with the children the first time, the 
members surpassed their initial qualms and enjoyed the 
experience. The children did too, Richards said. 

"People with disabilities sometimes are treated like they 
don't have a lot of potential," McGivern said. "It's nice to hang 
out with them and try to be a positive influence on them." 

McKee said she was pleased the men offered their time and 
hoped others gained an appreciation for volunteer work. 

"There are still young men out there who care about those 
with special needs," McKee said. "It gladdens the heart when 
they are willing to do that in spite of their busy schedules."

Active, alumni members unite to celebrate 90 years of 
brotherhood, observe differences around community 



Founded Jan. 25, 1913, the K- State chapter of Sigma Alpha 
Epsilon celebrated 90 years during a March reunion. 

The last reunion honored 75 years of existence. 

The 2003 event brought more than 350 alumni and 
spouces to Manhattan for the celebration. 

"We have a great deal of pride in our house," Charlie 
Hostetler, 1960 SAE graduate, said. "The current chapter 
house was built in 1938 and was considered one of the most 
modern in the country." 

Steven Richardson, senior in marketing and international 
business, said many alumni had not been back to K- State 
since they graduated. 

The March 7 weekend started with a buffet dinner.

"It's kind of like a family reunion, but it's guys you don't 
know," Richardson said. "They're telling the same stories 

— like about tailgating — with a different twist, from a 
different time period." 

Saturday morning, alumni boarded buses for a tour of the 
university and Manhattan. 

"A lot of people want to see the new alumni center, 
Bramlage and the football stadium," Hostetler said. "There 
has been a lot of construction in the last 15 years." 

The evening banquet featured guests from national SAE 

— President Richard Hopple and CEO Tom Goodale. 

The reunion concluded with a breakfast March 9 — the 
date the national fraternity was founded in 1856.

face off for charity 

Fraternity men manage sorority event, coach competitors 



DERBY DAYS Sigma Chi's annual fund-raising event, 
pitted 11 sororities in activities April 26 to May 4 to raise 
money for the Children's Miracle Network. 

"We make most of the money through T-shirt sales," Alex 
Roberts, senior in biology, said. "We also get some from selling 
admission to the events and sponsorship from companies." 

Sigs divided into groups of eight or nine to coach 
women competing in everything from lip synching to dance 
routines. 

The project committee met with the sororities prior to 
Derby Days to discuss rules and event plans. 

"We thought we might have a barbecue at Tuttle Creek 
on Friday," Matt Fanshier, sophomore in milling science and 
management, said. 

Fanisher said a mechanical bull and radio station remote 



broadcast increased community awarenes. 

Although the event was planned to be fun for everyone, 
the important part of the philanthropy was the charity it 
benefited, Mark Gipson, junior in industrial engineering, 
said. 

"The Children's Miracle Network is set up to help 
underprivileged kids," Gipson said. "They help with medical 
care and presents for the kids." 

The first day of the competition was reserved for a tour of 
the Children's Miracle Network in Topeka where participants 
saw the benefits provided by Derby Days. 

"On Monday, before we start all the contests, everyone 
takes a trip down to Topeka," Fanshier said. "We visit the 
hospital we are raising money for. That way everyone could 
see how all the money was spent."

sisters unite 

Competitiveness put aside when members from rival 
universities come together for education, bonding 



Wildcat fans considered the University of Kansas an 
intrastate rival, but Sigma Kappa women saw members of 
the KU Sigma Kappa chapter as family. 

"Our sorority is not only K- State," Kimberly Lawson, senior 
in kinesiology, said, "it's all Sigma Kappa nationwide." 

Christen Montgomery, junior in journalism and mass 
communications, agreed the sorority encompassed more 
than local members. 

"No matter what school we go to, we're all sisters," 
Montgomery said. "It shows what a powerful thing it is to 
found an organization on these specific ideals." 

Founder's Day, Nov. 9, brought together both chapters to 
celebrate the yearly event. The event encouraged members to 
learn more about their organization by sharing ideas between 
chapters. 

"It is important because we forget that we're a national 
organization," Regan Rose, president and senior in 
architecture, said. "We share a lot of the same ideas. It's good 



to get to know each other." 

Rose said members were eager to meet their counterparts 
in Lawrence. 

"Everybody has been open and receptive to meeting the 
girls," she said. "It offers a chance to know each other and for 
the girls to meet each other and exchange ideas." 

In addition to the Founder's Day celebration, new 
members traveled to KU to learn about different aspects of 
the sorority. 

"In the spring (2002) we took our new members for a 
retreat," Rose said. "It was education for our new members. 
We went to Lawrence and stayed at their house." 

In exchange, members of the KU chapter came to 
Manhattan to attend the mud bowl, an event the K- State 
women organized. Lawson said their presence was appreciated 
by the local chapter. 

"We get along really well," Lawson said. "We are always 
trying to support each other."

Growth 

Through 3 phases members of Sigma Nu enhance skills, 
gain camaradarie, learn lessons used in all aspects of life 



Ethics. Achievement. Development. 

Sigma Nu hoped to instill those four characteristics in 
each of its pledges and active members through the LEAD 
Program. 

The program, started seven years ago, required 
participation from all members regardless of seniority. It 
was divided into three phases: phase one for new pledges, 
phase two for second year members and phase three for all 
members. 

By doing exercises from workbooks and practicing team- 
building activities, Sigma Nus hoped to gain experience for 
real-life situations. 

"It helps members become leaders," Alejandro Medina, 
junior in mass communication, said. "When they are out in 
the real world, they will have the skills to get into the offices. 
They won't go in with their feet tied together."

ways to improve LEAD. 

"Frats get a bad rap for partying and drinking," he said. 
"To get rid of that, you need leadership skills, social skills and 
problem solving skills, and that's what LEAD is all about." 

Although he did not know about the program when he 
rushed Sigma Nu, Douglas Berry, freshman in open -option, 
said LEAD helped break the ice between new members at the 
beginning of the year. 

"The first couple of weeks it brought us together and we 
learned a lot about our pledge brothers through it," Berry 
said. "(LEAD) lets you know fraternities are serious and need 
leadership roles to run the house, they aren't just a place to 
party and have fun." 

While the program helped members in their daily 
schedules, it also proved to be beneficial to their future, 
Medina said. 

"Employers want to see employees have leadership skills," 
Medina said. "They will be valuable assets to the company. 
So people know it will help them out."

Renovation of chapter house welcome after 
fund-raising projects, member contributions 



THIRTY-THREE YEARS after original construction, the 
Tau Kappa Epsilon house was gutted and remodeled. 

Located at 1516 N. Manhattan Ave., the expected project 
completion was August 2004. 

"It's a $1.7-million renovation," Brandon Buschart, 
sophomore in business administration, said. "We're re - doing 
the whole inside." 

Eric Westerman, president and senior in architecture, 
said the majority of funds for the project came from alumni, 
while active members increased monthly bills for three years 
to contribute to the renovation. 

"We just felt like we needed to keep up with the other 
houses on campus," Westerman said, "We know, in order to 
keep competitive, we have to stay up-to-date." 




Before the renovation, sleeping and studying rooms were 
restricted to two men. The first priority was to expand the 
rooms to accommodate four men each. 

"There will be four- men study rooms connected to a four- 
men sleeping area," Brad Simmons, sophomore in journalism 
and mass communications, said. "And, eventually, the entire 
house will be wired with ethernet." 

Although remodeling started with individual rooms, the 
plan included improvements in the bathrooms, basement, 
kitchen and formal living room. They also planned to turn the 
entryway toward the parking lot for better accessibility. 

"It looks great," Westerman said, "It has changed quite a 
bit and looks more like an apartment complex, or even a hotel, 
instead of a frat house."

twice more 

Fraternity members double their numbers by initiating 
6 brothers, increasing recruitment tactics 



Initiating six men resulted in Triangle more than doubling 
its total membership. 

With 11 members, Triangle became more involved on 
campus, said Aaron Fish, pledge educator and senior in hotel 
and restaurant management. 

"It lets us do things we couldn't do in the past," Fish said. 
"We actually did a philanthropy this semester." 

Each active member worked hard recruiting pledges, 
Fish said. 

"It is nice to know the hard work we put into recruitment 
was successful," he said. "(The best part) is seeing the 
excitement about the positive direction things are going." 

Tom Ball, senior in mechanical engineering, said the 
fraternity used university- sponsored activity fairs for 
recruitment. He also said word of mouth helped. 

"It gives us a lot more opportunities," Ball said. "We want 
to stay a viable organization and having the old guys doesn't 
just give us that much of an opportunity." 



A higher number of activities between actives and pledges 
became a reality. 

"We were able to do more projects like the flag football," 
Ball said. "If you only had five guys, it would make for a pretty 
disappointing game." 

Anthony Grabitz, freshman in mechanical engineering, 
said the small fraternity fit him well and allowed for greater 
involvement. 

"I joined because they're a group of people who think 
in a similar fashion as I do — a group of people I can relate 
to." Grabitz said. "It is great because it gives each of us an 
opportunity to be involved with the group as far as committee 
positions go. It's kind of hard to do that with a large group." 

Grabitz said he first heard about Triangle from a friend 
and came to like the group and its policies. 

"They want to see us get involved in something," he said. 
"Each member tries their hardest to help each other member 
succeed."

AFTER DRIVING BACK TO 

Manhattan, Mark Scott 

checks in Jake, a dog 

Wildcat Express picked up 

in Wichita. Wildcat Express 

traveled to different cities 

and picked up animals 

that needed care and 

took them to the College 

of Veterinary Medicine 

Teaching Hospital to 

receive help. "It's different 

working on the animals, 

because you don't get to 

talk to the owner face to 

face," Carin Ramsel, fourth 

year student, said. "It is 

more relaxing though, 

because you know they'll 

be therefor at least a 

couple days." — Photo by

Community, leadership emphasis cited as top reasons 
for living with Christian men, sharing faith 



3 AS an Icthus Christian Fellowship 
house evolved to Lighthouse for men interested in building 
and strengthening relationships with God and each other. 

"It is just a house full of Christian guys who like to 
throw parties," Matthew Lehrman, junior in management 
information systems, said. "It is just a big, fun house with 
a lot of guys and a great community but not a lot of formal 
constraints." 

The 14 residents of the Lighthouse took part in house 
meetings, spring formals and coffee houses. 

"We have live music and make coffee and baked goods," 
Isaac Dennis, senior in history, said. "We usually have over 
100 people come." 

Not all members were K- State students. Some attended 
Manhattan Christian College or worked in the community. 

"Basically, who lives here is whoever we find," Dennis said. 
"We are not popular enough that we can be selective." 

Luke Bogner, Lehrman's roommate and senior in electrical 
engineering, was a former member of Smith Scholarship 
House. 

"There is more control at a resident level," Bogner 
said. "We do things completely different from a leadership 
standpoint." 

There were two leadership positions in the Lighthouse. 
The don was the liaison between the landlady and house 
members. The chaplain looked after the spiritual well-being 
of members. The chaplain also became a social chair who 
planned events throughout the year. 

"There are a lot of things that would be misunderstood 
about the Lighthouse," Bogner said about recruiting new 
members, "but it is truly formatted for a very narrow market 
with a strong emphasis on community." 



WHILE WAITING for 

guests to show up for 

the coffeehouse, Luke 

Bogner, senior in electrical 

engineering, plays a guitar 

on the second floor of the 

Lighthouse while Isaac 

Dennis, senior in history 

and anthropology, brews 

coffee. "The coffeehouses 

are my favorite house 

function," Bogner said.

each moment they can 

spend with each other. 

The couple became 

engaged Sept. 27 after

What's there to wait for?"

Experienced students offer ready-made lofts for hall residents 



PILES OF CUT WOOD, ready for assembly, sat in a garage one block 
from campus. 

Boone Burnside, senior in industrial engineering, had lofty goals for 
his small business. 

"It's kind of a little practice for entrepreneurship," Burnside said. "I'm 
doing it again next year. The money is good, it provides a service and I 
meet people." 

After building a loft for his sister, Burnside said he realized the demand 
for lofts. 

Burnside and friends built lofts for students living in the residence 
halls. Each loft cost $120, which included room installation. 

"We started a week before students got here," he said. "I had people 
stopping in and checking in on their way into town." 

Burnside received 64 loft orders. Jeremy Quint, sophomore in open- 
option and a former roommate of Burnside, helped with construction. 

"I have to give Boone all the credit though," Quint said. "It was all 
Boone's idea first. We learned about business more than anything." 

He said parents, especially fathers, were pleased to find lofts for sale. 

"Dads were just like 'how much,'" he said. "Dads didn't have to bring 
their tools. It was a win-win situation." 

Quint said the lofts were a valuable asset for cramped rooms in the 
residence halls. 

"We did it last year and saw how easy it was," he said. "People need 
lofts for space in the dorms." 

Rebecca Cornett, freshman in apparel marketing and design, had one 
of Burnside 's lofts placed in her room in Ford Hall. 

"You have a lot more space," Cornett said. "You can put your desk under 
your loft. It's a lot easier if you have a lot of stuff. You have more room for 
a fridge and TV and stuff." 

Burnside said he gained a bit of fame from his business. 

"I got kind of known," he said. "People know me as the Loft Guy."

Twelve months ago we started production of the 2003 Royal 
Purple with four goals in mind: to create a simple but trendy 
redesign, to continue good communication between staff members 
and photogs, to create more RP awareness and to have a purpose 
in everything. 

The first step to accomplish our goals was hiring staff. We started 
hiring in May, but didn't have a full staff until July. By August, two 
staffers had already quit. From September to November we lost five 
more. By December we hired three students to constitute the staff 
of 15. After one graduated, we ended the year with 14. 

Even though our staff changed faces frequently in the first 
semester, by December, we had established a committed group 
who continued to improve the quality of work and contribute to a 
humorous and productive work environment. We had a good time 
making friendships and participating in many new RP activities. 

Beginning at retreat, a fewkleptos on staff "borrowed" everything 
from spoons and glasses to "Caution: Wet Floor" signs. 

We had a resident deadline chicken — Stanley — and a deadline 
Ninja. We named our printer Perry so he would like us more to 
print pages faster. 

We sang "Happy Birthday" to our favorite dean of student life. 
We also listened to and sang songs from Jaci's closet CD, "Peaches" 
and grudgingly listened to the "Rent" soundtrack for a week after 
seeing the production. 

Over people deadline we went ice skating at City Park where we 
performed in pair's competition. 

And we ate. We had lunchtime picnics under the tree outside 
and a candlelight dinner in Kedzie library. We provided unique 
deadline candy for each of our six deadlines. We ate Linda's food, we 
ate cookies from Jen's mom, we ate Girl Scout cookies; we just ate. 

After all the changes, it was comforting to continue several RP 
traditions. 

During retreat we danced on the tables and sang at Joe's Crab 
Shack in Kansas City, Mo. We carved pumpkins for Halloween. We 
added hats to our collection of deadline thinking caps. Although we 
lost the annual RP versus Collegian football game, we dominated 
over two basketball games. 

In September and January we married off the 2000 and 2002 
Royal Purple editors in chief, respectively. Continuing the trend for 
staffers to hook up, four RP-photog relationships thrived despite the 
stresses of many late hours and pressures of working together. 

It was a long journey with ups and downs, but we can proudly say 
we've accomplished our goals and had a lot of fun along the way. 

Our high for the year: Watching the staff evolve from rookies to 
collegiate journalists and improving our work ethic and attitudes 
during deadlines. 

Our low: The slow start — but it worked out for the best. 

Thank you to all who made it such a productive year. 

Lindsey Thorpe and Lindsay Porter

Classes, activities and relationships marked transitions in 
students' lives. 

Through seasons and academic improvement, experi- 
ences strengthened identities while the collective face of the 
university remained constant. 

Students bonded during sporting events, club events and 
campus programs while striving to fulfill educational require- 
ments of courses. Studies were taken seriously, but fun entered 
the mix frequently. 

Aggieville constantly provided entertainment for large or 
small groups with concerts, contests and refreshments. 

When sponsored programs were not available, students 
gathered for barbecues, trips to Tuttle Creek Reservoir and 
organized sports. 

Whatever impacting changes happened throughout the 
year, ordinary occurrences built a lasting impression and 
provided a focal point for everyday life.
