o rientation is every new student's first college experience. During a short period of time the new student experiences a wide variety of challenging and exciting things. The pro– gram provides students ac– cess to the many college ser– vices and programs. Many groups of people are there to lend a helping hand, such as the 16 SA's (Student Assis– tants) who live in the dorm with them. Faculty members are also present as part of the

Faculty Enhancement Pro– gram. And, not to be forgot – ten, are the RD and the Ori– entation office staff. No mat– ter what time of the day it is the students have a helping hand around. Entertainment is provided as well as opportunities for students to mingle with their fellow classmates. The only negative aspect of the pro– gram is the lack of time for rest and relaxation, but the students don't seem to mind.



SA's are busy but, they find a way to make orientation fun!



P iece by piece, day by day the routine of a new semester comes together. The frustra– tion, confusion, and overall panic that is generally experienced at the beginning of the year subsides mak– ing the individual wonder why he or she ever worried to begin with. Strangers become friends. Dorm rooms become home. And campus food becomes edible well, almost edi– ble. Campus takes on a whole new life. It becomes a fury of activity as the new and returning students ap– pear. The routine of a new semester takes no time to adjust to. Those not so forgotten signs and symbols of college life begin to come back. Each student begins to remember the Union at Bengal Pause, those never ending lines at the Financial Aid and

Student Accounts offices, not to mention trying to find a parking spot somewhere near campus. But, these things are just a small part of life at Buffalo State. What is more important is the day' to day living that each student must keep together. Those long distance phone bills, trying to get to class on time, and studying take more prefer– ence. A student needs to balance their time, as well as their check book now that they are adults. The desire to go out when you know you have a midterm the next day needs to be dealt with. But as the student gets everything together life becomes easier to han– die. It actually becomes possible to juggle school and social lives without neglecting one or the other.



Pack it up and move it in! This is home sweet home!

The new Homecoming Queen gets a warm congratulations from a fellow hickliner.


O n Sept. 14, 1989 Buf– falo State held yet another successful homecoming pep rally. The rally pumped up the foothall team, the coaches, and the fans . There were energetic cheers and chants from all who attended. Cheers were started off by Buff. State's

own kickliners and cheerlead– ers to help the crowd get into the homecoming spirit. The traditional crowning of home– coming king and queen also took place with this year's honors going to Edwin Suarez and Gina Angello. Congrat– ulations to our king and queen .

The fans and the spirit of the Buff State crowd could not be dampened as the Bengals played their home– coming game at Coyer Field. Every person there showed their pride in the school , the community, and the Ben– gals!

hy, naturally it's the big football game. The premiere showing of the school's color's and talents. For Buffalo State that big game took place on September 16, 1989. Even though the weather didn't necessarily paint a rosy pic– ture (remember that annoy-

O ne of Buf– f a I 0 State's biggest bashes is the annual Gather– ing . This event takes place at the end of the spring se– mester. It is a year end party that in– eludes fun, games and live entertain– ment. The Gather– ing shows everyone a good time before finals roll around. It gives students one last chance to let loose before getting

down to business. And the '89 Gather– ing did just that. It took place on April 28, 1989 in the Perry Quad. The excite– ment which includ– ed a dunk tank and a jello pool kept every– one entertained. The Gathering is one event that brings people to– gether for a common purpose, good times with great people. It is one event that all students look for– ward to!

Adjusting ·rfo Changes

When students first arrive at college there are many changes to become accustomed to. It is theirfirst test of adulthood, being faced with so many new faces and situations and having to cope with all the pressures of school. Rirst of all many ofthem are homesick and mo'st ofthem are "Mommy sick" once they are ~aced with having to wash their own clothes and cleaning up their dorm room. Secondly, there is the roommate situation: it can be very difficult to be Jlut in a room with someone you barely know much less be asked to live with them. Then there is the major adjustment: classes. It can be such a radical change to come from a high school where your teachers hunt you down for assignments to total independence and responsibility. But, all in all the best situation when trying to cope with it all is just to dive right in and move straight ahead. After all, it is those challenges that help a person grow and become the person they are to become.






Dorm Sweet Dorm



Ai::co~ding to the dictionary the word dormi– tory is defined as a building consisting of sleep– ing rooms. That sounds pretty cold for a place that is home for many students, doesn't it? At first glance, that's what it appears to be: empty, dull, and dreary. Then the rug goes down, the posters go up, the bed gets made, you arrange your favorite stuffed animals, and POOF - it actually- becomes a place worth living in. It becomes a room to eat in, to study in, to chat on the phone in, to watch TV in, or a place to entertain in ... The list is endless. It's not just any room, it's home sweet home. Karen Velez

Take In The Sights

Everywhere on Buffalo State's campus there are sights to see. No matter where you look you are in for a treat. From the Football Team to the Bengals Kickline and everything in between there is something to suit all tastes. The sights and sounds of the surrounding city aren't-too far away. A person can always catch some action in the area. There are both indoor and outdoor sights to catch the eye ... If you want a bit of fresh air just try sitting the Perry Quad or enjoy the beauty of the Burchfield Water Fountain. Or if you prefer the indoors why not try the Planetarium or the excitement of the Bubble. There are sights of all kinds. There is the natural beauty of nature or the natural beauty of a passerby. Buffalo State has it all so why not open your eyes and have a LOOK! Mary Flaherty





~ I Fresh Start

A new year signifies a fresh start to all students. -From the first semester freshmen to the last semester senior and all those in be– tweep, nhe meaning is the same. It is a clean slate a.new start to all the things that college life has to offer. The nef faces and sights add to the excitement and enthusiasm of thiS great experience. Faces are bright as friendships are being rekindled and new ones are starling. The dorms are buzzing with excitement and classes have yet to be conque~ed. This fresh start I is something that all stu– IO

Instant Friendships

College life is something that remains with us in We mee pMple in c1asses, in the dorms, our memories for years to come. But, why?! Is it in clubs, almost anywhere. These friends are the because it is a time when we stUdy only those things things that stay with us throughout our lifetime. We we choose to, or is it because it sometimes takes look back at those people that helped us to get longer than expected? Of course not! The things we through the day to day routines of college life and we tend to remember as the years pass are the good thank them for making college some of the best times and good friends that we rn;ake during these times of our life!! years. Mary Flaherty Friendships seem to arise almost instantaneously.




Hitting The Books


Studying plays a large-part in any student's life. This is no under statement. Hitting the books, as it is sometimes called, is a daily part of college life. No matter where you look on campus you can see people hitting the books, and you don't even have to be near the library. But, studying doesn't always have to be a chore. It can be done outside while enjoying the sunshine, itcan be done with friends, or it can be done in your room. And it doesn't have to involve books. For those students involved in art or hands on classes homework can involve drawing, planning or constructing something. While every student must partici– pate in this activity it can be varied to meet the needs of each student. Mary Flaherty







Fashiens That Catch The Eye All over new fasbions that include eye catch– ing colors and patterns can be seen. This in– cludes Buffalo State. All arQund campus stu– dents are sporting tie-dyed clothing and acces– sories. These wild colors and styles can be s~en on many students from freshmen to seniors to graduate students. But these aren't the only styles that can be seen here at Buff. State. Standard jeans are still a big favorite and on nicer days female students may be'seen weariI;1g a mini skirt. All styles and trends are represented by the student body at SUCB. The diversity of students can be seen by these many styles. But no matter what style, color, or pattern a person chooses you can bet that comfort and good looks are top priority. Mary Flaherty





t t The Best Part '- Of The Week

Rest and relaxation are the two main ingredients for any successful weekend. Any student can tell you that no matter where they go to sc~oo~ or what their age is. Weekend is a universal word that is understood to stand for the best par~ of jhe week . Tpose few days at the end of every week seem to be what gets peopl~ th~ou9h the rest of the reek. It is time for each individubl persdn tb collect their thoughts, catch up on that much needed rest, and most importantly to go out and h~ve [un! But everyone also knows-that these times are not spent alone. As one commercial says, 'Ih time!'. It's a time to reJax and kick back for that much neeaea break. Whether thiS time is for the outdoors,the inaoors or-just--anywhe~e it is time well deserved and awaited.

Happenings Happenings, those things that take place all over campus atany time ofthe day, can involve any size group of people. They can include The Gatnering, The Jamificafion, or even just a small group of friends meeting in Perry Quad for lunch. These are the entertainment and social events hat help round out the life of a student. They are a chance for students to mingle, have fun, and relax in the midst of the campus and community. Happenings can be planned of course but some of the best happen– ings occur at the spur of the moment. If there is excitement, enjoyment, or just" plain action then there is a happening in mo– ~ tion. So don't just sit there try and make some ~ happenings for yourself because they· won't ~ happen by themselves!

Kick back, relax, catch a few rays, slow down, or do whatever it is you do to break away from the daily routine. Everyone needa a little time away just to spend goof;ing off. You know that time to change the pace from everyday living. Well, if you need a little help trying to thin of things to do when you take a break just take some students from Buff. State as examples. You know the type: they skip classes because at sunsliine, they have a never ending lu,nch break, they go to the library to study and you find them asleep on a couch. Get Vhe picture? Don'~ worry, just try it taking a break is as natural and American as apple-pie and Chevro– let! Mary Flaherty

Meet the New Man on Campus

This year has been a year of change and newness at Buffalo State College. The Counseling Center moved from Cassety Hall to the lower level of Porter Hall. Residence Life changed its name from The Oflice of Residence Life to The Residence Life Office and it also got a new director. But, the biggest change took place in the President' Office. As of July 1, 1989 Buffalo State College received a new president, Dr. F. C. Richardson. After a summer fu ll of' new faces , introductions, and getting acquainted, the new president started out his first school year at Buffalo State College . On Novem– ber 4, 1989 Dr. Richardson was inaugurated in the Rockwell Hall Auditorium. He was joined by Paul G. Bulger, E.K. Fretwell Jr., and D. Bruce Johnstone making it the first time the 3 former presidents and Dr. Richardson were together. They were also accom– panied by a procession consisting of students, college and university representatives, representatives from learned societies and organizations, alumni , faculty and staff', admin istration and the college council. There are also many changes and new goals that come wit h a new physical environment of the campus. He was disappointed in the appearance of physical appearance of the campus . Improvements to campus building were also one of his goals. He stated that if t he environment is not clean and safe learning will be affected. The ever present parking problem was also a concern for the new president. Another of his begin– ning goals was to enhance academics at Buffalo State. Once his goals were stated and in motion t he presi– dent began to get used to his new campus. He held informal "Meet with the President" gatherings for students and faculty. These meetings provided a great

opportunity for everyone to meet with the President as well as enab ling him to get a feel for the campus and its concern s. As t he year progressed the "new" president became more a part of BSC. Welcome to your new home, BSC' - Mary Flaherty -

Academics, administration, and faculty are three words that are integrated into everyday life at any college campus. No matter who you are or how you are involved with Buffalo State College your presence here is touched by those three words and all that they stand for. Sure, each word brings different ideas and thoughts to the minds of each individual person but, the main idea is still the same. Administration deals with those things most of us take for granted. When and where our classes will take place, who will be our professors, what we need to graduate, how the environment affects our learning, and our overall Buffalo State careers. The president, the vice presidents, and the deans represent Buffalo State College and its academic excellence each and everyday. Academics, the second of these three big words, includes everything from applying to the college to walking down the aisle at graduation. This is the one thing that every student must deal with each day. Academics are the reason most students are here at Buffalo State. Sure, college life is more than academics but nothing is more important than it is. Without the class work, field study, hands on experiences, and all those things involved in t he pursuit of a college educa– tion the ultimate goal would not be possible. (You know what that is, getting a degree and hopefully, employ– ment in your field upon earning that degree! Faculty is the last but not the least of the three. Faculty encompasses the wide array of professors and instructors t hat lead students down the road to success. They teach us the wisdom needed to graduate and perform those skills that will be required of us in the

" real" world. These are the people that we see each day, they can make us or break us, they are the ones that we draw infinite knowledge from as we get closer and closer to our final college destination, and they are the people we depend on the most. Throughout our college careers we come in contact with each of the above people in some way or another. We depend on them and they depend on us. The interaction between us and them is what college is all about. Academics is the thing t ha t faculty and admin– istration deal with and assist each and every college student with. But, without the faculty and the adminis– tration performing their jobs academics would just be boring book learning. The faculty and administration here at Buffalo State College make a difference they not only provide us with an education they provide us with the experience to move on and succeed in the months and years ahead. These next few pages are our chance as students to remember and reflect on all those people that make Buffalo State College more than just an institution. It is here that we say thanks, good job, and try to express our gratitude for their hard work and dedication. While each student will never know each professor or admin– istrator those that he or she has met and worked with will leave an impression on them forever. Once again, THANKS!! - Mary Flaherty -
