Cool It! organized in the spring of 1990 and brought with it all kinds of new environmental projects and issues. The group held recycling drives in the residence halls and posted reminders all over campus telling us to turn out our lights and conserve electricity. They also or­ ganized their first annual Earth Day, Every Day symposium in the library to celebrate the 20th anni­ versary of the Earth Day move­ ment, setting up booths and dis­ plays on different environmental topics and attracting more than 200 visitors. They included a speaker from controversial group Earth First! on their program, al­ though he lost some of us when he admitted that he tries to live off of the waste of o thers and scrounges for his food from dumpsters! The national Wildlife Federation re­ warded them for their efforts when they won a Merit Award of $2500. Too soon, it was time to leave, and the Chefies and Hotellies among us went off to summer externships while the Forestry and EET majors stayed on campus, battling black flies, for the summer session. The Student Council officers started a little early that year and helped us out by getting hours for the Den, Bookstore and library extended for us and by instigating the new sand volleyball court behind Essex. Maintenance made a lot of im­ provements for us that summer- when we returned in September we found Lambert and the Den/Book­ store painted and new landscaping all over campus. The Pickett park­ ing lot had been better fenced in with new posts and signs, and new stop signs and traffic and parking lines were all over the place. The fall of 1990 was the Men's Soc­ cer team 's turn to shine, as they had their first winning season in ten years and went to the Regionals (the Women's team missed the playoffs this year by one game) and also had an excellent season). Ka­ ren the elephant was this year's hits of the last half of the year.
