A VERY GOOD YEAR: 1982

Out in the world:

  • The Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C., was dedicated.
  • Top five Billboard hits: “Ebony and Ivory” by Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder; “Chariots of Fire” by Vangellis; “Don’t Talk to Strangers” by Rick Springfield; “I love Rock ’n Roll” by Joan Jett and the Blackhearts; “867-5309/Jenny” by Tommy Tutone.
  • Cost of a gallon of regular gas: $1.30.
  • St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 4 games to 3 in the World Series.
  • “Joanie Loves Chachi” was a top sitcom. 25 years later its star Scott Baio is back on TV in “Scott Baio ... 45 and Single.” Another top-rated show?

On campus:

  • Kate Noth ’82 (representing Kappa Chi) is crowned homecoming queen.
  • The Winter Carnival theme was "Cartoon Capers," and there was enough snow to sculpt 10-foot high structures.
  • The Swinging Knights covered Barry Manilow, Neil Diamond and songs from “Fame.”
  • You may have scheduled your classes around “General Hospital.”
  • J.R’s Untidy Josephs instead of Sloppy Joes.
  • Movies in Van Dyke Gym.

Fond memories ...

  • Owning an original Rubik’s cube.
  • One word: Izod.
  • “Alternative” music that actually was ...
  • Being a “wannabe”—Madonna, Duran Duran, Michael Jackson, whoever.
  • “Where’s the beef?”
  • Max Headroom.
  • Leg warmers and headbands.
  • Jordache jeans with a flat-handle comb in the back pocket.
  • Jelly bracelets and shoes.
  • Hair that defied gravity.
  • Life before MTV.
  • Wishing you could Moonwalk.
  • Knowing how to use a rotary phone, owning an Atari game system, being baffled (then and now) by the Day-Glo clothing trend.
