Carole’s leadership, the past two years, in my view, have been very
successful,” says Vice Chancellor and Provost Deborah A. Freund.
“Carole has restored stability, enthusiasm, and trust to the college,
and she is widely admired by administrators, donors, students, faculty,
and many others.”
Brzozowski, a graduate of VPA’s Setnor School of Music, joined the
University staff in 1978. She worked for the Independent Study Degree
Program, the School of Management, and the former College for Human
Development before moving to VPA. At VPA, she was assistant dean
for undergraduate student services from 1994 to 2000. “It has been
my great pleasure to lead the college on behalf of our dedicated
faculty, students, and staff,” says Brzozowski. “I feel fortunate
to work in a community of artists and scholars who are so full of
optimism, energy, and ideas.”
Arterian, a former law professor and associate dean at Arizona State’s
College of Law, takes over for Dean Daan Braveman, who will return
to the law faculty.
think what drove me to apply was the school’s strong reputation,”
Arterian says. “When I had a chance to spend time getting to know
the faculty, I became even more enthusiastic. The law school is
well positioned, and I am happy to have the chance to move the school
even further forward.”
Arterian received a bachelor’s degree in English, magna cum laude,
Phi Beta Kappa, from Elmira College in 1970. She earned a law degree
with high distinction in 1973 from the University of Iowa. In addition
to being on the faculty at Arizona State, she has taught at Iowa
and the University of Houston.

brings strong qualities in all the areas necessary to advance the
law school. She has a wonderful personality that will fit right
into the Syracuse University family.”

SU men’s lacrosse team won the 2002 NCAA Championship game
with a 13-12 victory against Princeton on May 27 at Rutgers
Stadium in New Jersey. It was the Orangemen’s eighth NCAA
lacrosse crown. “I attribute our wins during this tournament
to our seniors,” says head coach John Desko ’79, who won his
second title in four straight trips to the finals. “We’re
very excited that this has happened. It means a lot to us.”
The Orangemen were led in the final by All-America attackman
Michael Powell ’04, who scored a game-high seven points (four
goals, three assists) and was named the tournament’s Most
Outstanding Player. Syracuse, which has now played in 20 straight
NCAA Final Fours, finished the season with a 15-2 record.
Koiki ’04 says his first name means “the road to happiness.”
Thanks to his encyclopedic knowledge of sports trivia, Koiki
appears to be headed in the right direction on that road.
This spring he received $170,000 in prize money after winning
the third season of ESPN’s 2-Minute Drill, a frenetically
paced sports trivia show. En route to winning the loot and
trips to four major sporting events—including the Super Bowl—Koiki
defeated five opponents in the one-on-one trivia showdown.

in the stands and found a man in full cardiac arrest. “As
soon as I saw the patient, I knew it was a serious situation
and we needed to act fast,” Collins says.
on their certified training, the three used emergency equipment
to get the man breathing and his heart restarted by the time
paramedics arrived. Once stabilized, the man was transported
to Crouse Hospital, where he recovered. The patient, his family,
and the hospital emergency physician credited Collins, Baker,
and Conley for their life-saving efforts. “Too often it’s
the tragic events that bring out heroism in people, so it’s
all the more special when something heroic is done with a
good outcome,” says Tim Perkins, emergency medical services
manager for Syracuse University Ambulance. “These three are
