Letter from The CAA President The Carolina Athletic Association was established in 1894 before transpor tation made intercollegiate athletics viable. At that time the CAA's role was to encourage, develop and maintain athletics at Carolina. At first athletics at Carolina were solely intramural, but as transportation improved and neighbor ing schools became more accessible, the CAA sent Chapel Hill into the world of intercollegiate competition. Competition against other schools was a successful addition to Carolina's extracurricular makeup so that athletics and the CAA quickly became more important. As athletics evolved more and more, it became necessary for the student-run CAA to pass the administrative respon sibilities over to a professional athletic administration. Today the CAA is the student group responsible for linking the student body to the administration on athletic issues. Specifically, the CAA is responsible for devising and imple menting a ticket policy for the distribu tion of student football and basketball tickets, and for organizing and executing Homecoming. What is done beyond these two responsibilities is a measure of the vitality of the CAA. This year, we will develop the centrally located CAA office (Suite A of the Carolina Union) as an information center of everything athletic that is happening in Chapel Hill. We will also determine what roles may ue avaiiauie iui uui siuucm uvujr m uit 1987 National Sports Festival which will be held in the Chapel Hill-Raleigh-Durham triangle. Most important though, we will be available to bring any suggestions that you may have on ways to improve Carolina's Athletic oppor tunities to the administration, bmce we are your representatives, this is our responsibility so hold us to it. To be successful the CAA needs a good strong team, and in our game, Letter from The Educational Foundation The Educational Foundation, Incor porated, of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was chartered December 7, 1938 to provide assistance to the University for the following: 1. To offer financial aide to worthy young men and women seeking an education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; 2. To support University programs by providing services and funds for the construction of facilities or purchase of equipment. The Foundation operates in compli ance with all rules and regulations of the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the Atlantic Coast Conference. During the 1985-86 school year, the Educational Foundation will help 400 young men and women , attend the University through its athletic grant-in-aid program. In excess of 1.8 million dollars will be provided in scholarship funds under the Foundation's auspices in the coming year. The diverse intercollegiate athletic program at Carolina, consisting of 26 varsity sports (13 for men and 13 for women) benefits from its association with the Educational Foundation. The outstanding work of the participants, coaches and staff annually results in outstanding national recognition for UNC athletics and high placings in ACC and NCAA competition. In the 1980's alone, UNC teams have won seven national team champion shipsone in men's basketball, four in women's soccer and two in lacrosse. strength comes from both quality and numbers. The Homecoming, committee will need the most help. Joe Stewart and Marc Wright are leading this group and encourage alot of help. They plan a major concert, a traditional parade, several , parties scattered all over campus and many special events to make RAMPAGE '85 a success for students and alumni alike, Gene Krcelic, the editor of this newspaper, heads the Publicity group. He will need people to handle everyday publicity, Homecoming publicity, ticket distributon publicity and he will need a dedicated group to compile a new edition of this paper for the Spring. Spero Papadopoulos is in charge of Special Projects, which includes the 1987 Sports Festival and ' any improvement in the system which students suggest. Vanessa Pope leads the Ticket Committee, and while she doesn't need manpower, she encourages suggestions. Maurice DeBerry handles our finances and is always looking for legal ways to raise funds. Angie Smits and I will help where help is needed and will take care of everything else. We will all hold office hours and will look forward to hearing from you.
