A Piece of the Sun.
To raise money for the three-wheeled solar race vehicle that competed in
the 1993 Sunrayce in June 1993, students began selling solar cells that held energy from the sun
and help power the vehicle on its 1,000 mile trip from Dallas to Minneapolis. For only $15,
supporters told the alumni who had returned to campus for the annual reunion in July, they
could "own" such a "piece of the sun," and help their alma mater compete against the other 35
colleges and universities in this futuristic race. Selling 1,900 would provide the money the team
needed to complete the car.
Presidential Switch.
Stephanie Stress, TC sophomore, won the right to switch roles with
President Gallagher for a day: on March 18, she became University president and he became a
student again. From 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Stress assumed the job of president while Gallagher
sat in Stress' classes and followed her schedule for the day. The purpose of this event was to
increase the understanding between the students and the administration by actually having a
member of each group "walk in each other's shoes for a day."
Stress was chosen by a lottery among about 100 students, each of whom paid a dollar to
be entered.
