NEW COLLEGE A publication of the New College Alumnae/i Association Volume 51, Winter 2005 BEARING THE WEIGHT OF THE UNIVERSE A BRIEF HISTORY OF wALLS David Higgins ('01) The Tangent (NC student publication) Special to the Nimbus "When I finally started showing up to walls as a participant, they began to change my life," said New College alum Guy Jara ('89). "Walls, to me, were like poor man's group therapy." Walls, the informal parties that take place in Palm Court every weekend, are perhaps the oldest and most entrenched New College tradition. Students in the early '70s were dancing and sweating to the Rolling Stones and Motown just as students today get down to Justin Timberlake and OutKast. The tone of the wall may vary week to week just as easily as it does from de cade to decade, but one thing has remained the same, according to alums and current students alike: walls are completely student run; intellectually and emotionally chal lenging; informal and debauched; occasionally alienating; a distilla tion of the freedom and equality at the core of the school's founding. "The lessons I learned at walls were at least as important as the classes I took, and, in some ways, perhaps more so," wrote Jara. "Well, how did I get here?" asks David Byrne in "Once In a Lifetime," a favorite wall song about the pas sage of time. The short answer is, nobody really knows. The true his tory of walls is locked away in the fond and foggy memories of alums who may or may not have been there, depending on whom you ask. The only thing that seems consistent is nostalgia for the end less dancing, the community spirit, the feeling of absolute freedom and maybe a little substance use. Walls were not always called "walls," nor were they always held exclusively in Palm Court. Nobody knows for sure, but the term "wall" seems to have come into use some time in the earlyto mid-'80s. Be fore then, most parties were called Palm Court parties, if they were called anything. ''The atmosphere was Baccha nalia," said Steve Jacobson ('71 ). The benefits included "lots of mu sic and dancing, interesting sub stances to imbibe, possible sex." The drawbacks: "music was loud, substances aren't necessarily good for you, sex usually didn't happen." Little has changed. nThe lessons I learned at walls were at least as important as the classes I took, and in some ways, perhaps more so" --Guy Jara ('89) The idea was generally the same, but procedures were more informal and spontaneous in the earlier days. There was no signup sheet, very few themed parties, and little advance planning. Things just tended to happen, and the re sults varied depending on who was taking the initiative. Compiling a digital playlist via laptop as stu dents do today is much easier than exhaustively recording songs to a reel-to-reel tape, as they did in the '70s-though perhaps not quite as easy as dropping the needle on a Rolling Stones or Bob Dylan LP, as the charter class did in the '60s. According to New College Foundation President and alum John Cranor ('64), in the earliest days there were no such nighttime public gatherings in Palm Court. Cranor noted that campus secu rity then tended to be "more pre ventive than protective. At that Continued on Next Page

History of Walls Cont. from P. 1 time alcohol on campus was strictly prohibited. So if you wanted to drink beer or anything else you did so in the privacy of your room. Music was also played pr i marily in the rooms leading to "smaller gath erings inside, rather than large gatherings outside," said Cranor In 1971, the legal drinking age was lowered to 18 in Florida, which may have allowed students the freedom to party in public more fre quently Robert Lincoln ('77) re membered many parties starting as "happy hour when "a bunch of folks would arrive on the wall with a six-pack and see if something grew. Although the school has owned and updated periodically its own sound system in the '70s mu sic was generally played from the balconies of students with good speakers. Occasionally competing music factions would develop in dif ferent corners of the court lead ing to such epic showdowns as Motown vs. New Wave, and Reggae vs. Classic Rock. If Palm Court seems perfectly suited for the social hub i t has be come, that's because i t was de signed that way. In the earliest planning of the college, Founda tion trustee emeritus Nell Eurich and her husband Alvin consulted the philosopher Ortega e Gassett for suggestions for the ideal mod ern college. "Gassett said that a college should never have long corridors, Cranor recalled. There should instead be a version of the Greek Stoa, or a forum where people could come together and informally meet as scholars and discuss. That was worked into I.M. Pei's resulting design as Palm Court. According to Cranor, spe cific palm tree species were per sonally selected by Pei to resemble Greek columns as closely as pos sible. It s such a free and open space," said Dav i d Bryant ('91), Alumni Association Executive Direc tor I can t think of another college where there s a central space like that where everybody parties to gether like that. "Unl ike other colleges where parties are mostly segregated by dorm fraternity or sports team Palm Court is unifying. I believe it makes New College students feel a great sense of connectedness to each other which other colleges alums must not have," Larry Vernaglia ('87) wrote via e-mail. And because Pei dorms can be isolating this i s and was impor tant. "Pei is super-modern very an gular. If you notice it's a little bit difficult to comfortably sit and look i nto somebody s eyes just about anywhere in Pei," said Director of Residence Life Mike Campbell ('87). Campbell also noted that walls are potentially alienating when the music is too loud or the lighting is too dark. Apparently the greatest threats to walls throughout h i story have been noise complaints called in from as far away as Longboat Key. Campbell and Bryant both agreed that in earlier decades parties tended to be inord i nately loud It was physically painful to stand in front of those speakers when they were cranked up, said Bill Rosenberg ('73) Bryant claimed the music was sometimes so loud that nothing came from the speak ers but distortion In perhaps the biggest crisis in wall history, noise killed walls for an entire year in 1991, after months of escalation and threats of clos ing all Palm Court parties at 10 p.m by the governing University of South Florida Sarasota campus dean. Walls had been shut down by noise complaints so often that students hackles were up and nerves were frayed," sa i d Jara. One late September night Jara claims he went into the eerily s i lent Palm Court after a wall had been shut down began howling a full throated wolf-baying-at-the moon howl and shooting off some bottle rockets. Slow l y students re emerged from the i r rooms and joined Jara in creating noise some of them banging together the lids of trash cans. Their protest esca lated "In what might be described as a spectacular jackass move," said Campbell, "the students kind of collectively decided to go march ing down Bayshore." Jara de scribed it as a critical mass of sev eral dozen folks howling, screaming, banging whatever they could get their hands on, and gen erally raising a ruckus. By all ac counts the noisy crowd was at least 50 or 60 students strong and the neighborhood promptly called the Sarasota Police Department. The paddywagons came," 11 students were arrested "people spent the night in jail-it was a fi asco It was a horrible fiasco! said Campbell. "We knew the shit was hitting the fan and that we, the students were probably going down as a result. But we were going out with a bang," said Jara. This was known as the New College Riot," Campbell pro claimed. I think calling it a r iot imbues it with more danger than it actually presented to the neighbor hood. But nonetheless, the neigh borhood didn't know that." As a result "the police chief announced that henceforth there would be no more outdoor walls. Period," said Jara. For the remaining 1991-92 school year, there were no walls. According to Campbell attempts to play music in Palm Court were

squelched by the cops. According to Bryant, attempts to hold parties in Ham Center just weren't the same. "Man, it was rough," said Campbell. The administration had taken away students' best and sometimes only social outlet. "No body knew what to do. And you can imagine what happened. People retreated to their rooms and, uh ... engaged in self-destructive behav ior generally, is what happened," Campbell said. "From a community mental health standpoint, it was terrible. God, it was terrible." Walls were reinstated in Fall of 1992, following an administrative split with USF, the addition of Gor don "Mike" Michalson as the new Campus Dean and Warden, and a rigorous examination of noise poli cies, according to Bryant. But the consequences were far-reaching. "I know for a fact based on sta tistics that I've seen that there was a big peak in attrition that year'' when there were no walls, said Bryant. ''The students were just not happy. Our graduation rate for that entering class was below 50 per cent. It was really low." "Without walls serving as their initiation into the tribe, the new stu dents still conceived of themselves as atomistic individuals, and their behavior reflected that," said Jara. Even when walls returned, "there simply wasn't the same sense of camaraderie because there were now essentially two years' worth of students at the school who, in a very real and important sense, had not had a full experience of own ing their own freedom" at walls. Though they may not be as pas sionate at Jara, most alums give the sense that regardless of what walls may have been in the past or are now, the most important thing is that they continue to be. "Stupid policies come and go, but the plea sures and beauties of New College life and relationships are not go ing away," said Vernaglia. "Everyone has a different New College," said Ginger Lyon ('70). Although many alums related the pleasures of "their" New Col lege, when it came to the "most im portant" or "most vivid" memories, the recurring theme was the threat of destruction. In addition to the many alums who commented on the New College Riot of 1991, Bryant related stories about the Sarasota Fire Department extin guishing a bonfire in Palm Court that threatened the trees. He also told of extreme vandalism, from carving and painting on some of the palms, which ultimately killed them and is now responsible for the few missing trees. Leslie Smart ('84) emphasized the gentle right of Novo Collegians to protect the values embodied by walls, which are not always under stood by those who do not live through them. She recalled the "great sport in watching a non-New College guy try to get a New Col lege woman to dance with him." She said fondly that, at the best walls, students knew they did not have to pursue anything or try too In perhaps the biggest crisis in wall history, noise killed walls for an entire year in 1991, after months of escalation and threats of closing all Palm Court Parties at 10 pm by the governtng USF Sarasota campus dean. hard.

The impact of all the changes over the past few years is not totally clear but it is clear that the changes are not over yet. As an NCAA Board member I hope to help make this ongoing transition a positive one and to build the NCAA as a source of support for the school and of community for the alumnae/i. For the past three years I've worked for the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Stud ies (MAPS), a New College alum run non-profit focused on funding research into the medical uses of psychedelics and marijuana I am excited to bring the skills I've gained in organizational strategizing community-building and fundraising to the NCAA Board. Since the NCAA's merger with the Foundation, we are left with new questions about our role in managing funds, communicating with members, and working with the school. I look forward to helping the alumnae/i network continue to define and expand our role in supporting New College. Cindy Hill Ford ('89) I attended New College (as Cindy Hill) from 1989 to 1993, and I went on to attend graduate school at both Florida State University and Oxford University in England, and then law school at Florida State's College of Law. I moved back to Sarasota with my husband and two children about a year and a half ago. I am currently working as an attorney with the law firm of Kirk Pinkerton, and my husband is a professor at Manatee Community College. With my connections to the Sarasota business, legal, and education communities, I believe

NCAA Candidate Statements (cont.) that I am in an excellent position to assist New College both in obtaining financial assistance and in increasing its recognition in this community Additionally, because I am local, I can offer New College a very high level of commitment. As a high school graduate of a Sarasota school (Pine View), I am particularly interested in assisting New College in obtaining locaL students. My brother, Eric Hill ('96), is also a graduate of New College. Robert S. Hans ('80) It i s w ith great enthusiasm and s i ncere interest that I present my self as a candidate for the Asso ciation Board I look forward to working with the other board mem bers to make the Association a more dynamic organization serving the needs of the alumnae / i and the school. I studied l i terature and philoso phy (B.A Humanit i es) at New Col lege and received a Master of In ternational Management degree from Thunderbird (Arizona) in 1981. Since then, most of my work has been focused on internationa l economic development assistance and I have had the wonderful op portunity to have lived and worked throughout Latin America, Europe, Africa, Asia and the Pacific. While I have been interested in serving the New College commu nity for some time now, I only now have the necessary time to take on such a responsibility. Over the past few years, I have been actively in volved in educational activities, having served on the Boards of both the Henderson International School (Solomon Islands 19992000) and the International School of Ouagadougou ( Burkin a Faso 1996-97) as well as on the Educa tional Excellence School Adv i sory Councils of Mast Academy and Carver M i ddle School in Florida. I am the founder and currently Chief Executive Officer of lOS Part ners, Inc. (www.iospartners.com), an international economic development firm headquartered in Florida. I live in Miami with my wife Patti (originally from Bolivia) and our four kids and I welcome this opportunity to serve the New Col lege community. John Hansen ('76) I have been an NCAA Board member for most of the period from 1992 to the present. I would like to extend my service into the future to help drive the Association's con tinuing evolution, particularly as it works more closely with the New College Foundation and the ad ministration of New College of Florida. My experience on the NCAA Board, as well my six years of service on the New College Foundation Board of Trustees, pro vides me with a solid background and base of relationships to be ef fective in shaping this ongoing evo lution. My formal business training and 17 years of business consulting experience provide me with a range of strategy market ing and financial skills that I can bring to bear on issues facing not only the NCAA but also New Col lege of Florida more broadly. I ask for your vote to enable me to con tinue my work on the NCAA Board. Thank you. Employment: Founder & President, John L.

An other half-decade on, I am feeling the urge to get back to my New College roots. I have many con tacts w ith New College alums (and some folks who attended but never graduated) in New York, Tallahas see San Francisco Colorado, Wash i ngton D C., and Sa r asota I am i n touch with alums who started New College in the mid-80s and also folks who just graduated a couple of years ago. Because of this I have a good sense of both the history of New College and also how the campus is chang i ng. I have exper i ence with administra t ive bodies having served on the executive board of KBUT radio in Colorado and also with the Inter national V i sual Sociology Associa tion. New College is important to me and I and continue to rave about it to anyone who will l isten. I feel it is crucial that the experi ences and opportunities that were so important to me personally and professionally also get passed on to the next generation.

NCAA Candidate Statements ccont.) Catherine Heath Continued on the decision on whether New College would become the 11th i nstitut ion in the State of Florida university system As the news ar r i ved via cell phone a cry went out. Students ran to tell others and lighted sparklers to celebrate New College l i berat ion. New College i s still a young in st i tution whose educational hall marks remain unique in Florida and rare nationally. Yet it i s strengthened by the talents and resources of its graduates. The NCAA should encourage opportu nities to put those strengths into action through alumnae/i leader ship volunteerism network i ng, and life-long learning. I share in the vision of the NCAA as the ma jor facilitator and susta i ner of those i mportant lines of communication and continuing relationships to alumni living nearby in Florida and fo r those living a world away. My personal engagement w ith New College has cont i nued past graduation i n recruiting prospec tive students I believe that similar opportunities should be afforded to as many alumnae/i as are inter ested New College inspires in many life-long commitments. The NCAA should continue to support that commitment and promote the New College concept in the period after graduation. Steve Jacobson ('71) I m now finishing my third term on the board, and I d like to serve again if you'll have me. Over the past six years, my primary respon sibilities have been Student Grants and the NCAA website. I think both programs have been successful though not perfect and I d like to continue working to improve them If you have been pleased with my work i f you think the website is getting better you should consider voting for me If not you should vote for some body else. I 'll wait patiently for your decision Adam Kendall ('98) The r eason I wish to assist the alumnae / i population by serving on the NCAA Board of Directors is due to the vital role that all alumnae/i play in our community. Numerous changes have been implemented at the College since I graduated two years ago New College is in a criti cal transition period It is imperative that we as alumnae/i, are kept abreast of these changes and are able to vocalize them with confidence in our own neighboring areas I have been working as a financia l advisor since I was a second year at New College Upon graduation, I have worked with the New College Foundation to establish an Adopt-A Scholar program, which is designed to help incoming students with finan cial aid and to promote investment from local businesses. I have also established an Internship Program with Morgan Stanley and New Col lege in which several students have been trained on what it takes to suc ceed in a competitive specialized work environment. I will work on behalf of all alum nae/i to keep us well-versed on the issues well-respected within the community and well-supported as an independent honors college. Employment: Partner Wealth Advisor Team, Morgan Stanley Sarasota FL Robert Lincoln ('77) I have had the pleasu r e of serv ing on the NCAA Board of Trustees since 1997 During that time we have undergone a number of changes in leadership and direc tion We are now in the process of making the merger' of the NCAA and Foundation work and will be experiencing another change in our staff when David Bryant leaves the Execut i ve Director post this spring Some longstanding Board members are leaving or have left in the last year We also are changing the election process to one in which half of the Board is elected each year in an effort to support continuity while embracing the chances that come with new membership. I hope to continue to serve and support the Board through this pe riod of change and provide some of the institutional memory to help guide the Board through these next transitions. I hope to have your vote and support to do so Ginger Lyon ('70) I love being on the NCAA Board. !love it for lofty reasons, and for low: The active confrontation of first class minds and the fellowship; The excuse to visit Sarasota and the i n comparable New College campus ; Being in the know about what is go ing on with the powers that be, and with the students All this is great. But the best thing about serving on the Board is having projects and platforms that I can really sink my teeth into (planning a reunion, mak ing sure that publications and pro nouncements never lose that par ticular New College spice) and then, being able to see the results of my efforts. I have been in a love affair with New College for over thirty years now. Like all such affairs it is com plex changing and ultimately,

PAGE 7

NCAA Candidate Statements ccont.) nourishing My wish for each of you is to be similarly swept away And that is my role on the Board. Chris Martin ('95) I would like to be considered for election to the NCAA. I have been active in this body since 2001, and I feel that I have been able to con tribute to the NCAA's development as the college moved from USF to NCF. I was also here for the last negotiations of the merger be tween the NC Foundation and the NCAA. My greatest contribution however, has been to the New York community, where I have put to gether some of the largest alum meetings to ever take place. I hope to expand the scope of these events over the next few years If elected I will continue my work in the city and try to increase the alumni giving rate which is a fig ure that I feel is below what it could be. Ultimately more reunions and oft campus meetings will naturally lift that rate and we can have a good time doing it. As we continue to grow as a body, I hope we will become more active in the school and increase the size and scope of our network. We can achieve this by allocating more resources to funding campus activities and improve the NCAA board's commu nication with other members Maggie Phillips ('99) I have just finished my second year as an appointed member of the NCAA. Before this I had served as the NCSA representative to the NCAA and a member of the student grants committee My most visible role, currently is as co-editor of the Nimbus. It has been a sincere plea sure being part of this great group of people as we continue to address the challenges and rewards encountered with the College s separation from USF and merger with the Foundat ion. I would like to continue learning from all the won derful people that are part of this association and working with the rest of the NCAA board to make this association and this college even better Molly Robinson ('98) I have been a part of the New College Alumnae/i Associat i on Board as an appointed member for a year now. I enjoy working with the board and would like to con tinue as an act i ve board member connecting my work with the New College Admissions office with Alum Board activities. I have had past experience as NCSA president and have been a member of the New College Foundation Board since 2002. Thank you tor your consideration. Bill Rosenberg ('73) As New College alums we are privileged to be members of a unique thriving community that celebrates the mind and encourages lifelong learning. The College s distinctive educational philosophy has had a profound impact on my life and inspired me to dedicate a significant amount of my time and resources to the sup port of its mission As a member of the Alumnae/i Association Board of Directors (1993-1997; 2004) I have had the pleasure of working to create the NCAA web site plan ning and photographing alum events, and serving on the student grants committee. I remain firmly committed to keeping New College at the forefront of innovative higher education. Our voices have been heard regarding a key decis ion on campus and as a resul t the Pei dorms will not be demol ished as had been planned ; i n stead they w ill be kept and reno vated We have accompl i shed a great deal in the past forty years but there i s much still to be done as the College evolves and ex pands I ask for your vote so that I may continue to insure our collec tive knowledge and w i sdom w ill be effectively applied to achieving our shared goals : a vibrant and exciting New College community. Lawrence W Vernaglia ('87) Being President of the NCAA for the past several years has been a real honor and great pleasure. In my view for the NCAA s mission to flourish we must meet two ambitious goals: (1) meaningfully contribute to the life of New College enr i ch ing the experience of current and future students and (2) help alums stay connected with the College and each other in ways entertain ing stimulating constructive and broadening New College needs our assistance and we have responded to every request made by the Administration while keeping watch that the College stays true to its history and mission This is a critical balancing act for our Association being effective enough to be taken seriously but not afraid to be critical of decisions that un necessarily jeopardize our special vision and values This sounds heavy and there is real business to be done But at the same time we can t take ourselves too seri ously because this is all sup posed to be fun. If this approach to running the Association strikes you as the right way to continue, then please vote for me again If not don t but please call me anyway so we can talk about it! Thanks for your con fidence and support

IBook f\t:S I Rob Atkinson's (NC '74) new book, The Past and Future of America's Economy: Waves of Innovation that Power Cycles of Growth, will be released in Feb ruary 2005 (ISBN: 1843769557; $85.00; Hardcover; Edward Elgar Press). From the publisher: "Throughout American history, pe riodic cycles of economic change have fundamentally reordered the way we work, the organization of business and markets, the role of government, and even the nature of politics. If we are to control our future, we must understand this process of change. These eco nomic transformations are pow ered by the emergence of waves of new technologies. In the 1890s, the development of electricity and cheap steel led to a new, factory based economy. In the 1940s and 1950s, automation and advances in electronics and chemicals cre ated a new national corporate, mass-production economy. Since the 1990s, an information technol ogy revolution has again created a robust New Economy. Robert Atkinson examines this process of change over the past 150 years and explores the responses of people and institutions. The book then analyzes today's New Economy, including the technology system, and effects on markets, organizations, workers, and gover nance. Taking into account the his torical record, the book discusses the shortcomings of prevailing lib eral and conservative economic doctrines and lays out a new growth economics agenda aimed at maxi mizing the productivity-enhancing forces of the New Economy." Margie Knauff (NC '85) contributed two chapters to Amelia Peabody's Egypt: A Compen dium, which was published in the fall of 2003 (ISBN: 0060538112; $29.95; Hardcover; William Morrow Press). The Compendium is a companion volume to Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody mystery series. For those who don't know about Amelia, she is an Egyptologist/archaeologist who happens to solve murder myster ies. The series is set in the Victo rian era, with most of the action taking place in Egypt. The com pendium expands on issues which are mentioned but not explored in the series (i.e., Egyptian history, Victorian inventions, women archaelogists, pyramids, fashion, etc.). Margie's contributions were "Upstairs Downstairs: A Skillful Overview of Victorian Servants and their Duties" and "Seen but not Heard: A Sympathetic Scrutiny of the Victorian Philosophy of Childrearing." Lisa Kernan's (NC '70) new book, Coming Attractions: Read ing American Movie Trailers, was released by University of Texas Press in November 2004 (ISBN: 0292705581; Paperback; $22.95). From the publisher: "Movie trailers-those previews of coming at tractions before the start of a fea ture film-are routinely praised and reviled by moviegoers and film crit ics alike: 'They give away too much of the movie.' 'They're better than the films.' 'They only show the spectacular parts.' 'They lie.' 'They're the best part of going to the movies.' But whether you love them or hate them, trailers always serve their purpose of offering free samples of a film to influence moviegoing decision-making. In deed, with their inclusion on videotapes, DVDs, and on the Internet, trailers are more widely seen and influential now than at any time in their history. Starting from the premise that movie trail ers can be considered a film genre, this pioneering book explores the genre's conventions and offers a primer for reading the rhetoric of movie trailers. Lisa Kernan identi fies three principal rhetorical strat egies that structure trailers: ap peals to audience interest in film genres, stories, and/or stars. She also analyzes the trailers for twenty-seven popular Hollywood films from the classical, transitional, and contemporary eras, exploring what the rhetorical appeals within these trailers reveal about Hollywood's changing conceptions of the moviegoing audience."

London (NC 65) was published by Feral House Press in October 2003 (ISBN : 0922915938 ; $16.95 ; Pa perback). From the publisher: "Vampires have frightened and fas cinated readers for centuries. This illustrated book examines real vam pires whose crimes have contrib uted to the mythos.

The book is published by MCLE, Inc (website : www.mcle.org; True Vampires: Blood-Suckphone: 800-966-6253; $165; 818 ing Killers Past and Present a pages in 2 volumes book written by Sondra Stewart looseleaf I hardcover).

This comprehensive manual focuses on health care delivery in its legal business regulatory advocacy and personal aspects. Practice pointers and hypotheticals provide concrete guidance as you navigate the federalization consolidation bureaucratization and increasing regulation of this dynamic area of practice." Conversations with Don DeLillo a new book edited by Tho mas Depietro (NC '72) was pub lished by the University Press of Mississippi in January 2005 (ISBN: 1-57806-703-0 and 1-57806-7049; $20.00 in paper; $50. 00 in cloth}. From the publisher: "In Con versations with Don DeLillo, the renowned author makes clear his distinctions between historical fact and his own creative leaps, espe cially in his masterwork Under world. There it seems the true events are unbelievable and imagi nary ones not. Throughout long profiles and conversations--rang ing from 1982 to 2001 and pub lished in the New Yorker the Paris Review, and Rolling Stone--De Lillo parries personal inquiries. He counters with the details of his work habits, his understanding of the novelist's role in the world and his sense of our media-saturated cul ture. A number of interviews detail Delillo' s less-heralded work in the theater, from The Day Room to a recent production of Valparaiso, itself a stinging satire on the inter viewing process.

NEw CoLLEGE ALUMNAE/I AssociATION STUDENT GRANTS UPDATE Bill Rosenberg ('73) and Steve Rosenberg ('71) NCAA Board of Directors Simone Harbas is a 7th term NCF student who wants to study the reintroduced wolf population in Yellowstone this January. She's going to be looking for a specific topic for her senior thesis, prob ably involving some aspect of population dynamics in the wolf community. She's hoping to use her wit and charm to get around while she's there, but she has a backup plan. Trevor Caughlin is a 3ro term stu dent who wants to spend an off campus study term in Auroville, In dia, studying fruit trees and environmental sustainability. He spent last Summer on campus, and planted over 50 fruit trees, but he wants to get more hands-on expe rience with fruits more suited to Florida's climate than what one typically finds in the US. Auroville is an ecovillage in southern India, with a climate similar to Florida's, where they grow the kinds of sub tropical fruits Trevor is interested in. Lara Drizd is a 7th term student who's planning to head into the Everglades "snail country," where she'll be studying a species of tree snail in relation to the Everglades Restoration Plan. Much of her work there will be done up in the trees. Lara has already taken a tree climbing course to learn how to do this work safely. What do these students have in common, other than New College? They're all going to be able to do their work partly with help from you! They are among the students receiving grants from the Student Grants Committee during our Fall 2004 grant cycle. At our November meeting, we awarded over $5,600 to 21 out of 32 applicants, in amounts ranging from $50 to $500. Lara Drizd is a 7th term student who's planning to head into Everglades "snail country," where she'll be studying a species of tree snail in relation to the Everglades Restoration Plan. Among the other students who received grants, three students, Tawnya Hersha, Bryan DeBono, and Cristina Beno, will have an opportunity to present their research projects at professional conferences. Mary Hill will be trav elling to China to study "which cur rent social problems in China arise from the inherent nature of a com munist structure and which of these troubles stem from specific devel opment decisions made during the application of the ideology." Jonathan Schaan will be working on his Senior Thesis, "Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights in Bo livia." His project involves inter viewing Bolivian Government and NGO officials regarding "their thoughts and strategies to fulfill their obligations to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR)." In many cases, these are follow-up interviews, as Jonathan has al ready spent time in Bolivia, on work leading up to this project. As you can see, the projects reflect a wide range of studies and interests, and some of them are very expensive, especially for an undergraduate. In many cases, we are funding a small portion of a much larger project, with additional funding coming from several other possible sources, including Foundation Research and Travel Grants. The Student Grants Com mittee has recommended to the NCAA Board, and to the Founda tion, that we increase the maximum grant amount from the current $500 to $1 ,000. This is largely a response to the inflation which has occurred over the past fifteen years or so, during which time the maximum NCAA grant has never been increased. In order to pro vide roughly the same opportuni ties to current students, we must provide more dollars. At the same time, if we're going to provide for the same number of students, we'll need to increase the total funding available for student grants by a proportionate amount, i.e. double what we now have. If you'd like to help support stu dent research, travel, and special projects, you can make a donation to the NCAA. You can do it on the website, newcollege.org, or by mail or phone. You'll be helping to maintain the spirit and substance of New College, and you'll feel good doing it, so go ahead.

FuNDRAISING UPDATE: WHY SHOULD You GivE To NEw CoLLEGE? John Hansen ( C '76) NCAA Board of Directors With the academic year two thirds complete, now is a good time to provide an update on the NCAA's fundraising sources and various uses of alumnae/i funds. The NCAA has transferred its day to-day fundraising operations to the New College Foundation but remains an active participant in ensuring the success of those op erations, especially as they relate to alumnae/i giving. Moreover, the need for the Foundation and Alum nae/i Association to be indepen dent checks on USF during the post-1975 period has given way to a need for both organizations to be fully aligned with and financially supportive of the College. By pro viding greater transparency to the College's needs and our sources and uses of alumnae/i funds, we hope to encourage each and ev ery one of you to take a more ac tive role as a "steward" of New College of Florida. Goals and Objectives: Fundraising goals and challenges for New College and hence the NCAA and Foundation focus on two key measures of success: "partici pation rate" and dollars raised. We and other institutions of higher education define "participa tion rate" as the percentage of graduates who have made a finan cial contribution within the most recent two academic years under review. Our success in raising our participation rate is critical for two reasons: first, to build a viable fundraising base for current and future educational initiatives; sec ond, to provide an indication of the "success" of the college in its mis sion, whether being measured by the accreditation committees or college ranking organizations (US News, Barron's, Princeton Review and the like). In fiscal year (FY) 2003-04, the alumnae/i participa tion rate was 27%; midway through FY2004-05, the rate was at 16%. The fundraising cycle operates on a fiscal year similar to the academic year, running from July 1 to June 30. The participation rate is driven by both our ability to generate new donors, including new graduates and past graduates who have never donated, and to activate "lapsed" donors who have given at some point but have not con tributed in recent years. We have made significant progress in increasing the partici pation rate among recent gradu ating classes. A key contributor to this success is the "1 00% Initiative" campaign aimed at generating donations from each member of a given year's graduating class. The success of these initiatives is borne out by participation rates of 50%-70% for several post-2000 graduating classes. The donations of graduating students have had a meaningful impact on participa tion rates. Thanks to all who have participated! The NCAA and Foundation have sponsored particularly noteworthy and successful regional visits by NCF President Mike Michalson and Foundation President and charter class member John Cranor. These visits have provided a unique op portunity for alums to reconnect with the college and learn first-hand about the innovative initiatives that continue to provide a valuable, rel evant and differentiated under graduate experience. They have also been useful in our effort to educate alums about the impor tance of giving, which has led to increased numbers of new donors and reactivated lapsed donors. We encourage each of you to use any or all of these opportunities to learn about and re-connect with the college and its exciting work, and to commit to being a financial stew ard of the college to the extent you are able. Beyond increasing our alumnae/ i "participation rate," our second fundraising goal is to increase the absolute dollars we raise from al ums each year. In FY2003-04, al ums contributed $233,000, with roughly half of those contributions made to the Annual Fund. Through almost the first six months of FY2004-05, alums have contrib uted roughly $86,000, with $54,000 of that going to the Annual Fund. The keys to achieving growth in total dollars raised are: growing our donor base (as de scribed above), retaining past do nors and encouraging donors over time to increase their donations in proportion to their ability to give. One particular challenge the Faun-Continued on Page 27

WHAT'S NEW AT NEW COLLEGE? RECENT CHANGES TO YOUR ALMA MATER Eric Hinton (NC '00) NCAA Board of Directors and NC Admissions Counselor WELCOME TO In the last two years, there have been several changes on campus, although the last major change was definitely the opening of the Keating Center, the new home of the Foundation, Alumnae/i Associa tion, and Library Association, in February 2004. The most dramatic change since then has been the installation of lights all over the campus from College Drive to Palm Court. The campus welcome sign reflects the recent split between USF and NC in spite of still sharing the campus. For all those who remember making out in some dark corner of the campus, these are memories that will not be relived. For the last three years, the campus police have insisted on keeping Palm Court lit, even during Walls. From there, we have seen overhead lights installed along the walkway from Ham Center to Palm Court and along the entire length of College Drive. For those of you who remember being concerned about the lack of lights on campus and the safety issues that spurred, take heart that the current students have much less to worry about as they roam around campus at night. On the other hand, I think the cam pus has lost some of its intimacy and charm. This process is in This sign otz the site of Crosley Estate i defaced with graffiti, reflecting community opposition to con truction on the site because of environmental concerns. progress and additional lighting surveys are to take place in order to identify other areas on campus that should be better lit. The other project that has reached a plateau is the installa tion of wireless routers around campus. Campus Computing has installed them so that people with laptops can access the internet from the Dortstein lounges and the benches at the baseball diamond, Palm Court, the Pei lounges, Ham Center, the Jane Bancroft Cook Library, and the Four Winds Cafe. Simply from walking over from Ad missions to the Cafe from time to time, my impression is that the router in the coffee shop sees pretty heavy use. Despite the addition of the Heiser Natural Sciences Complex and the Pritzker Marine Science Laboratory, and the eventual ad dition of new dorm space (which could happen as soon as this sum mer) on the east side of campus, there is still a large amount of un developed land on campus. Much to the consternation of the people who spent the last couple of years

fighting the University of South Florida s plans to break ground at the Crosley Mansion ground has been broken and they will eventu ally move most of their operations to the estate. While this is poten tially destructive for the land and wildlife that exists there i t does atlow USF to go ahead with its plans to physically split from New College. As far as the next few years go I think USF's exit and the new dorms are going to be the next b i g ohvsi cal shocks to the campus SOO ON CHAE UOIT IU The Soo Bong Chae Auditorium is located in the Heiser Natural Sciences complex and is named in honor of the late mathematics professor. -The walkway between the Pei Dorms and Hamilton Center now sports these new lights, featuring signs that say ((There is only one New College." The Heiser Natural Sciences Complex sports an interesting new mosaic sculpture, a result of the State of Florida's Art in Public Buildings program. The Keating Center, the new home of the Foundation, Alumnae/i Association, and Library Association, is located on the west side of campus near the Pritzker Marine Biology Lab.

NCAA President's Report Larry Vernaglia (NC '87) President, New College Alumnae/i Association Our last President's Letter con cluded with a brief, but real, invita tion: New College wants you! Not your moneywell, we do want that, but it's not what we are talking about here-but YOU. We want your time, expertise, memories, ideas, and your commitment to the value of the New College educa tion and the New College experi ence. Some things about New College, I'm pleased to report, don't change. One of these is that this little school is always trying to be stronger. Another thing is that we never have enough resources to do it; and so we use creative problem solving to try and get us there. I guess a third thing along this line is that we think that New College students and al ums have a pretty good sense about how to find such solutions. What this all means is that the Col lege relies on the volunteerism of its alums to a degree that no other university, of which I am aware, does. Where do we need you? Here are a few examples: Plan and/or host a local event. We need people with good ideas about hosting events in their cities and towns for New College alums, traveling students, admissions can didates and visiting faculty. These are not terribly high-stress, but they are critical to maintaining the connections of the College to the broader community. Teach a course or class at New College. Our Alumnae/i Fellows Program is more important than ever. New College is attracting many more talented students than in the past. The College's Strate gic Plan calls for more outside cur riculum support. (See Nimbus Vol. 50, Summer 2004, p. 1.) If you have something to offer that you think the College will need, and you are in the market for a teach ing experience, let us know. Help organize the on-campus reunion. May 20-22 is the next re union. We need a broad group of people from all years to (1) prom ise to come, (2) help make sure their friends do to, and (3) maybe take part in planning some of the festivities. Offer to help with admissions. Last year, we sent out a request for help from the Admissions Of fice they still need us. In fact, the College is actively encourag ing alums to talk-up the New Col lege experience with their friends who have high school age kids and encourage them to apply. This is very important at helping the school reach out to the most prom ising young students. Mentor a New College student. We are reinvigorating our NCAA mentor program. Fill out the mentorship form in the back of the New College Directory or on-line. Consider New College students for a job with your company. www.newcollege.org has a link for job postings. The College Career office is regularly looking for recommendations for work placements for our students. Please let us know if you have an opportu nity so we can keep business in the family! Volunteer to help with fundraising. The Foundation is working to create a network of "friends" to help strengthen the financial status of the college. These friends will be asked to help find money. Are you good at that? If so, ask Michael Milton ( mmilton@ncf.edu ) at the Founda tion how you can do it. Write an article for the Nimbus. Do you have story to tell about life after New College? We are actively listening for new voices for our Nim bus. Send our editors an e-mail (alum@ncf.edu) if you have a con tribution you would like to offer. Help with other NCAA Commit tees and projects. The NCAA Board is all volunteer. Our profes sional alumnae/i office is 1 person with some part-time help. Conse quently, everything carried on by the NCAA (and a lot you don't see) is done by volunteers. This in cludes the Student Grants Commit tee, Nimbus publication, merchandise development, website development, faculty development grants, and a slew of other projects. We need your help in all these areas to keep the Associa tion alive and growing. The NCAA has now moved to annual elections (instead of elec tions every two years). We are try ing to keep a steady flow of "new blood" in the Association's leader ship. But the value of fresh per spectives is every bit as important in these many other programs of the NCAA. So please think about making this year the year you get reengaged in New College -we need you!

(CoNTINUED FROM PAGE 23) dation and NCAA have faced has been in having donors renew their gifts on a yearly basis. Among New College alums, roughly 40-60% of donors in any given year do not contribute in the subsequent year, while national benchmarks suggest that yearly donor turnover should be closer to 30%. To be sure, in dividual donors face changing fi nancial circumstances that impact their ability to donate from year to year, but sometimes we plan to donate and simply don't get around to it. Please try to make a donation every year! Every dona tion, whether large or modest, has a meaningful impact on the lives of students today. For those of you who would ben efit from the convenience, please think about having your bank ac count debited or your credit card charged automatically once a month, once a quarter or annually. Please contact the Director of An nual Giving of the Foundation, Michael Milton ('98), at mmilton@ncf edu, to learn more or to initiate this process. From the NCAA Board, thank you to all who have supported New College this year and in the past. While the high standards and unique academic program of New College have affected us all deeply, it is truly the people of New College that make it special. The support and goodwill of alums are vital to New College, and we truly appreciate your participation in our alma mater's future!
