Disadvantaged Help.
A grant of $158,000 from the State of New York established two new
programs to assist economically disadvantaged and minority students on campus. This grant
partially funded both the Higher Education Opportunity Program (HEOP) and the Collegiate
Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP).
These programs targeted students who had shown the potential to succeed, but who
came from backgrounds which had not prepared them well for college. The HEOP program was
designed to raise students to the academic level they needed to complete their undergraduate
studies. CSTEP sought to get minority students to enter technical or professional fields such as
engineering; counseling and academic support was set up to assist them.
In 1994-95, 13 students were helped with HEOP and 40 by CSTEP.
Other Athletic Stars.
Nine members of Clarkson's men's swimming team were named to the
Upper New York State Swimming and Diving All-Academic team, the most from any school in
the region. To achieve this honor, an athlete had to finish in the top 24 of an event at the NY
State Championships, and have a 3.3 cumulative grade-point average. Senior Tom Bendl was
honored for the third straight year; Garhett Rittenhouse and John Mooney were selected for the
second consecutive year; Eric Leipold, Rob Young, Bob Brown, Darren Robare, Steve Perrigo,
and Alex Stefaniak were named for the first time.
The nordic ski team made its tenth consecutive appearance in the US Collegiate Ski
Association Nationals, placing second in the Mid-East Regionals held at Lake Placid in
February, and fifth in the nationals held at Great Gorge Resort in New Jersey late in March.
Julie Sprague placed first in the women's classic race and the freestyle event at the Mid-East
Junior Justin Shope finished the 1993-94 season ranked sixth in Clarkson's all-time
scoring list with 1,203 points in 74 games. He held Clarkson records for most career three-point
baskets (208) and most three-point baskets in a season (80 in 1993-94). Scoring 473 points in
this season, Shope was 168 points away from breaking Peter Ganley's '72 career-scoring mark
of 1,370. (See 1995)
Snail Eyes.
A snail's eyes contain a "clock" that tells its body to be active or to rest. Because
the same thing happens to a part of the human brain, Biology professor Michael Roberts
received a $126,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to study how understanding
