USD Magazine, Spring 1999

It was a night for presidents, at least the USO kind, at President Alice B. Hayes' annual dinner Jan. 9 honoring top donors to the university. Joining Hayes for the 50th anniversary-themed event was the first president of the Associated Students, Kathleen (McGonigle) Murtha '54 (left), and cur– rent president Kristen Jones, decked out in traditional Spanish Renaissance attire to greet the 255 guests.

USO junior Angelique Breaux (right) had a little more than working out on her mind during the semester break. Breaux, 20, represented California in the 1999 Miss USA Pageant in Branson, Mo. , Feb. 5, finishing as the second runner up.

It's a banner year at Alcala Park, as the university celebrates its golden anniversary. Banners proclaiming the 50th celebration and motto "Tradition with Vision" were unfurled on the campus's Marian Way and nearby Linda Vista Road.

Odissi, one of the classical Indian dance forms, was performed as part of the Sixth Annual All Faith Service Feb. 5 in The lmmaculata Church. More than 900 wor– shipers attended the service, which featured prayers from various faiths and a perfor– mance by Manoranjan Pradhan (left), a lead– ing Odissi dancer, and the Patnaik Sisters, who danced with pop star Madonna at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards.

San Diego Mayor Susan Golding helped boost USD's Golden Anniversary celebration by delivering her seventh annual State of the City Address Jan. 13 before a capacity crowd at Shiley Theatre. Golding congratulated university officials for "50 years of excellent education," and illustrated San Diego's commitment to high-tech by speaking via satel– lite to the city's Hong Kong development office.
