awesome professor, advisor and listener who
is honest and sincere with every student,"
said one student nomination.
"Over the last two years, Prof. Lassiter has
opened up doors for me that I never knew
existed. His class has encouraged me to pur-
sue a career path in urban planning that I
would not have considered if not for his
enthusiasm and devotion," said another.
Lassiter, who came to the University after
teaching for just two years at a small liberal
arts college in Maine, said he was grateful
for the award and what it meant.
"I wouldn't try to say that I'm a better
teacher than anyone else. I think there are a
lot of great teachers here, and it's a faculty
that really balances teaching and researching
really well," Lassiter said.
"Small colleges emphasize teaching as a
top priority, so there is a culture there of
you're in your office all the time and going
to lunch with students, and it's difficult at a
place like the University, but my sense is that
students can make this a small university if
they want to. ... I've gone to lunch with
some students when they've invited me and I
love doing that," he added.
He said seeing the enthusiasm one of his
own college professors had for academia is
what drew him into becoming a professor.
"There is something on a college campuses
where is always a high level of energy," he said.
"I find that to be the best part of teaching
at the University, there is constantly a new
group of young, excited, intellectually
"The poignant part of that is that students
move on and you stay here."
He also said he believes his subject matter
- recent American history - helps him to
reach his students.
"History courses have to be engaged in the
world we live in now... we have to under-
stand the world now through the lens of the
past. The classes that I teach are about the
present as much as the past," he said.
Lassiter added that one of the things he
tries most to do is break up his lectures with
engaging videos and films. A typical lecture,
he said, uses six to eight film clips at two or
three minutes each.
"I give hour-and-20 minute lectures, and
nobody wants to listen to someone talk for
an hour and twenty minutes," he said.
"(Using clips) really draws points home in
a way that talking about it, I don't think,

the black middle class is a proba-
ble cause of the increased female
enrollment. "People are just get-
ting aware of the trend and there
is a two-year lag in publication,"
Eccles said, referring to the lack
of conclusive reasons for the
increased enrollment of women.
"It's real speculative now"
Eccles said measures taken in
the past to boost the number of
women in higher education may
partly explain today's trend.
Engineering freshmen Karina
Fochtman attributes the current
numbers to increased motivation
among women. "Girls are getting
more interested in being educated
and want to be more independ-
ent," she said. "They also work
harder and have better applica-
tions which lead to more of them
getting accepted." Having more
women than men in classes adds
more to courses, LSA junior
David Pechersky said.
"I'd rather have more girls in
my classes because they like to
talk more," he said. "But I'd have
to be more sensitive about what I
say." Even as more women enroll
in college, some students feel
they will be unaffected by the
rise. "There is no effect on the
engineering especially," Engi-
neering sophomore Fernando
Cheng said about the higher
enrollment of men in the Engi-

involved," Senger said.
In addition to religious views on homosexu-
ality, premarital sex was also discussed exten-
sively, although only one of the panelists
expressed strong disapproval.
"Sexuality is restricted to marriage. It is con-
sidered sacred, never depreciated, and (within
the confines of marriage) considered natural,
healthy and useful for spiritual benefits," Bilici
said. Bilici went on to say that Islam actually
celebrates sexuality in marriage and talks about
it explicitly, with actual books of Islamic erotica
suggesting various sexual positions for married
couples to try.
Stevens echoed his comments that premarital
sex is wrong, saying that in Christianity mar-
riage is a protective institution in which sex can
But the importance of confining sex to mar-
ried couples was not as highly stressed in com-
ments from Dworsky and Senger.
Dworsky said in Judaism, the sexual urge is
important and should be cultured and elevated.
However, she never made any direct reference
to the importance of sex within the framework
"The energy inherent in something like sex
drive can be supplemented into an energy of
rich love and mutual self-perfection," said Sen-
ger in reference to Buddhism. "There is no sex
license. Morality is relative; we teach basic uni-
versal truths. There is less emphasis on moral
codes, because they vary between societies," he
Liana Reading, a former Christian Science
believer who converted to Islam, said after the
event the only speaker to answer the questions
directly was the Muslim representative.
"All the other panelists totally avoided the
issue," LSA senior Reading said.
She specifically criticized the Christian Sci-
ence speaker for not taking a stronger stance on
homosexuality. Reading said Christian Science
does not condone homosexual practices.
But Deline said he was happy with the out-
come of the event.
"Originally our plan was to expose people to
other religions," besides his own religion,
Christian Science, he said. He added that he
was glad to see that people are thinking about
