Savannah State College 


Savannah, Georgia 

Volume XVII 

It is axiomatic that change has 
influenced the development of our 
college. Significant architectural mile- 
stones form the foundations with the 
graceful gothic and majestic columns 
which illuminates the aged maturity 
of the campus. 

r :if- 










Responding to the modern challenges 
and the new dimensions demanding 
new perspectives, the image of the cam- 
pus has been renewed to structural steel 
and glass. We build buildings which 
will live as ageless memories of those 
who traversed their halls and discover- 
ed within them, new experiences toward 
a greater maturity. 


For a freshman, as for a senior, a new 
year means new faces and friends . . . 
for the commuter, the beginning of the 
daily trek to the college by the sea . . . or 
the arrival of the resident students by 
plane, train, and car to a new atmos- 
phere of study and excitement — a cam- 
pus ever-changing because its students 
are ever-changing in origin, experience, 
and view point.

We learn, not through isolation, but through 
association with others . . . the professor at the 
classroom podium or the students in seminar, 
sharing with others the fruits of individual 
thought and research. Or in the laboratory, 
learning through experimentation. The lecturer 
in the sciences of the humanities, broadening 
the horizon of our vision and understanding. 
Shelf upon shelf of books, each one assuming a 
new vitality and worth as fresh minds gather 
new meanings from its words . . . things which 
are renewed each year as new minds begin their 
search for wisdom which comes with maturity. 
We live in an extraordinary community of 
teachers and students engaged in the threefold 
task of discovery, training, and of preserving 
through education the culture and the learning 
of mankind.

While in pursuit of education, academic 
studies are of primary importance on the Savan- 
nah State College Campus. Special events and 
activities are numerous. 

Pictures on this page show various shots of 

These activities and many more help make 
Savannah State College the center of outstand- 
ing attractions in the area. 


Social life involving wholesome recreation is 
encouraged and emphasized at the college by the sea . . . 
The student union is one of the centers of student life. 
Many social activities are presented during the student's 
quest for knowledge . . . From the Freshman Class Mixer 
during Orientation Week to the Junior-Senior Prom four 
years later, a steady parade of new faces and acquaint- 
ances join in a round of relief from the rigors of books and 
more books. From the Cotton Ball in the fall or the Red 
and White Ball at Valentine's to a Western Hop in the 
Student Center, students find time to add these to their 
social schedule. 

The Men's Festival with its athletic events, talent 
shows, and dances . . . The Mardi Gras on a winter week- 
end, or the Senior Week with the fond good-byes are 
cherised memories that enrich our social development. 



'.';■■■» ■ ■ **'..'' 

Savannah State's athletic events contribute a 
unifying spirit to the college. The Tiger's spirit 
and determination to excel are passwords for 
those engaged in competitive sports. The thrill 
of the crowd cheering the team on to victory or 
defeat . . . the cheerleaders exhibiting seemingly 
impossible acrobatic feats . . . the precision of 
the marching Tiger's. The sacred and' reverent 
strains of" We Hail the SSC" are some segments 
of the intangibles that enrich our memories of

President Howard Jordon Jr. — the name and the man are both symbols of 
dynamic leadership to all Savannah State College. 

Those who know him personally can attest to the fact that here is a man 
dedicated to the task of developing and enriching the future of Savannah State 
College. Under his administration the Board of Regents has allocated approxi- 
mately $1,700,000 for modern buildings and facilities. 

The faculty has grown considerably and great stress has been placed upon the 
strengthening of the academic program, as is evident, by the addition of top flight 
instructors to the faculty. 

Dr. Jordon's accomplishments in leading Savannah State College to greatness 
are numerous. But none are greater than that of winning for himself a warm, 
respected place in the heart of Savannahians for his role in leading Savannah 
State to greater heights.

There is always a person who has the character that 
appeals to all students. Dr. Joan Gordon is one of these 
persons . . . with forte divided among- many talents. 

Her spirit and force embraces a heart so big" that it can 
harbor the problems of unknowing- freshmen, bewildered 
sophomores, confident juniors, and matured seniors. 

She has, during her thirty-six years at SSC guided 
and helped to mold many raw and indifferent youths into 
useful and knowledgeable citizens. 

She is one whose girlish grin, warm friendship, 
understanding, and respect has captivated us to love her. 
In profound gratitude for her service as an instructor, 
poet, and cultural leader, we are honored to dedicate the 
1965 Tiger to Dr. Joan Gordon.

President's Message 

In the entire history of the College, no period has witnessed such favorable changes as those 
that have occurred during- the last few years. The new spirit and mental vigor of the institution 
have made it possible to imagine greater and more wonderful things in the days to come. Several 
million dollars have been spent and will be spent toward the development of the physical plant. 
New buildings, renbvation of old buildings, and removal of obsolescent buildings are giving the 
College the setting and environment for better work and finer cooperative learning. 

You, as a member of the student body, are contributing to the growth and expansion of the 
institution through your endless quest for knowledge. 

May the many pleasant memories contained in the "Tiger" serve as a record of your rich col- 
lege experiences and as a fountainhead for your future successes. 

Jordan, Jr.

Mr. Robert D. Reid, Dean of Faculty 
A.B., M.A., Ph.D. 

Dr. Robert D. Reid, newly appointed Dean 
of Faculty, is a familiar figure around SSC. 
Under Dean Reid, the college is growing 
and, subsequently, the academic stan- 
dards are higher. It is hoped that the 
growth will serve to provide for the stu- 
dent the basic determination and knowl- 
edge required in the present-day and 

Mr. T. C. Meyers, Assistant to the 

A.B., M.A.

instructor in the Humanities, as Dean 
of Faculty and as acting president 
before assuming his present role as 
assistant to the president. 


Mr. Ben Ingersoll, Registrar 
A.B., M.A. 

Mr. Ingersoll's quiet efficiency in analyzing - and 
predicting future needs has and continues to be 
of inestimable help to the administration, faculty, 
and students. 

Mr. Wesley L. Johnson, Jr. 
A.B., M.A. 

Mr. Johnson is responsible for keeping 
the college budgets, the general adminis- 
tration of fiscal affairs, the development 
of financial policies, and the internal 
service agencies. 

Mr. N. R. Freeman, Chairman Student Personnel 
B.S., M.A. 

The goal of N. R. Freeman, Dean of Men, is to 
encourage and help the student attain maximum 
all around development. Dean Freeman counsels 

and supervises students and student

and journalistic prowess have earned for him 
many awards and acclaims. With his continued 
assistance, we can look forward to continued 
growth and achievements in journalism and 
public relations. 

Mr. Prince Mitchell, Acting Alumni Secretary 

During the absence of Mr. Prince Jackson, Mr. 
Prince Mitchell, Budger Assistant, has the major 
goal of keeping former students of SSC up to date 
on current affairs. 


Our faculty is not divinely inspired. They 
realize that incompleteness is essential. If 
they pretended that they knew all the answers 
they would become bores and pedants. But 
when they admit they only know some of the 
answers, and that students must also engage 
in the search for truth, they become scholars 
and friends. 
If teachers gave all the answers many needed and enjoyable 
hours in the library or science laboratory would not become a part of 
our college experience. For the search for truth sometimes centers in 
a laboratory where many hours of work may contribute only one 
minute piece of information. Sometimes it centers in a library where 
books must be scanned and persued and all the scholarly writing 
studied for new insights. But whatever the source and whatever the 
knowledge, it passes from teacher to student and from this gener- 
ation to the next. 

An attempt to praise the faculty as a group 
is possible but also quite unrealistic. To 
praise them as individuals is impossible for 
us (the members of our limited staff do not 
know all the faculty members:) but it is the 
only valid way. If each reader would praise 
or commend the instructors and administra- 
tors they know, our task here is accomplished.

The personality of a college depends upon those 
who attend, teach, and staff that college. At Savannah 
State the student body and its staff is a kaleidoscope of 
personalities from many of the fifty united states, and 
other countries of the world. 

Students who make up the Savannah State com- 
munity bring to their new home their desires, goals, 
unique personalities, joys and sorrows. They are mixed, tempered, and somewhat 
reshaped by the school's atmosphere. Students mature as they live more and varied 
experiences and so does the college. Thus, the college and its students change and 
grow together and give to each what is more important — life and a definite person- 
ality that is unique. 

For some, graduation is that long awaited moment 
that climaxes college life after four years of rewarding 
experiences and study. To some, graduation is a wel- 
come relief and the end of an enjoyable experience — 
learning. To others, the more scholarly, it means an 
opportunity to go out into the world and commence 
learning. To all, commencement is a beginning and an 
ending . . . the ending of college days and the begin- 
ning of the initial steps toward the grand scheme of

College isn't all studying and hard work. 
Sometime, not too often though, students 
find time for after-class activities. Social 
events require most extra-curricular atten- 
tion! Sorority and fraternity term parties, the big - all-college dances, and fun 
at the beach are the main concern of social-minded SSC student. Besides the 
planned entertainments, there are parties and bull sessions, long hours spent 
over coffee in the student center, and informal get-togethers for card games, 
tennis and parties. State Students are gre- 
garious people, and the friendly campus 
spirit is reflected in the interchanges of 
"Hi" and "How are you?" that take place as 
students meet. All these activities comprise 
the friendliness for which SSC is famous.

If the most important endeavor in which 
any student body participates is academic 
work and study, then a close second must be 
the social life and extra-curricular activities 
in which the student participates. 
Savannah State is fully aware that in order to have a well rounded academic 
program, there must be an adequate amount of outlets to utilize the information 
and experiences gained in the classroom and through individual study. The 
various organizations of Savannah State College permit students to utilize in- 
herent talents, develop new skills, and serve humanity. During the 1964-65 
school term there were forty-five campus organizations in which students 
could serve and work, or be rewarded for the college and the community. 
In many campus organizations and activi- 
ties, the student must apply what he has 
learned in the classroom. But, not all activi- 
ties fit into this category. Many exist partly 
for relaxation. The following pages show, in 
part, how Savannah State College students 
spend their time relaxing working and uti- 
lizing their skills. By participating in the. 
various activities and organizations of the 
school, life long friendships are established.

In 1911, three young 1 men, Edgar A. Love, Oscar J. Cooper, and 
Frank Coleman, conceived the idea of founding a Negro : National Col- 
lege Fraternity. The young men discussed the matter many times, 
and as a result concluded that they should have some guidance. 
They contacted Professor Just and he consented at once, having a 
keen appreciation for the problems of youth. 

On November 17. 1911, the Omega Psi Phi was born. The four 
Cardinal principles agreed upon were SCHOLARSHIP, MANHOOD. 

Alpha Gamma Chapter was established in 1949. Ever since that 
time the members have strived to uphold the standards set by the 

Among the many activities outstanding of the Chapter are the 
Annual Achievement Week Program, the Christmas Seals Campaign, 
and tutoring services for the Lampodas Club. The Chapter also 
sponsored social activities which include smokers, rush parties, 
dances and their annual Mardi Gras. 

On October 28, 1914, the laying of the foundation was formally 
completed when the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity was incorporated by 
the United States Congress. 

From that one undergraduate chapter (Alpha Chapter) the Omega 
Psi Phi Fraternity has a roster of 270 chapters. From a membership 
of three in 1911, Omega has a membership of more than 25,000. 

Every state in the Union has some sons of Omega to carry her 
ideas. There are Omera Men abroad also.

raise their standards. In her room in Minor Hall Ethel Hedge- 
man, Lucy Slowe, Beulah Burke, Margaret Hagg, Marjorie Hill,

"In our hearts we build a shrine for thee . . . 
We hail the queens of S.S.C. . . ." 

Grace, charm, talent, personality, and beauty are the qualifications of a suc- 
cessful queen as well as a successful human being'. Here at Savannah State 
College, we have been blessed with a multitude of lovely young 1 ladies with the 
foregoing requirements for being our queens. At all times there is a queen for 
every organization on campus, but when we begin to look around at the lovely 
ladies who were by-passed because of campus traditions, we feel that there is a 
dire need for at least two queens to represent each organization. 
The feature section of the yearbook is 
devoted entirely to our charming queens. We 
will always remember their serenity during 
the homecoming festivities, Greek balls, 
coronation balls, and other social affairs at 
dear S.S.C.

"Fight! Fight! Tigers." shouts the crowd. 
Then an expectant hush creeps over it. Strong 
bodies with alert minds appear. 
The game was the climax of homecoming activities. With colorful pre-game 
ceremonies and half-time shows lacking nothing short of perfection, the old 
grads were extremely pleased with their Alma Mater.

spiritly, SSC prepares its athletes for the con-

Tiger Is 

James P. Neal, Editor-in-Chief 

A yearbook, like history is not made of one event or by one per- 
son; rather it is a combination of efforts and a compilation of activi- 
ties. People are also necessary if the yearbook is to be recorded. 

Perhaps it is not too pretentious to say that a yearbook seeks to 
capture the spirits of a particular group of people at a particular 
time in a particular place. It tries to discover the identities which 
belong' to that group because of the convergence in time and space 
of so many individuals. The 1 965 Tiger faced this with trepidation. 

Without you the students and faculty of Savannah State, the 
Tiger would not have anything to tell. For your help, thank you! 

To the members of the Tiger's Staff, I sincerely thank you for your 
time and your efforts. Special thanks to James Robert Smith and 
Homer Day, Associate Editors, Robert Joiner, layout and copy edi- 
tor, and Patricia Neely, Freshman Editor. For the staff this year- 
book holds special memories. In time of irritating complacency, 
flaming disagreement, they have contributed their efforts. Even in 
the threatening shadow of an impending deadline the editing of the 
yearbook remaineda joy because of the people with whom it was done. 
I would not repent this year as editor, for it will go down in my 
college career as a year filled with special learning into the essence 
of Savannah State College.
