1) Students seek to build memorial jungle gym

Since the death of Swarthmore student Daniel Gaubatz of a heart attack on
February 22, 1994, a group of Swarthmore students has been trying to set up
a memorial for him. The plan, in its final stages, is to build a jungle gym
near Sharples.

“Dan was a Puck-ish sort, and everyone on this campus needs a little more
ritualized play,” said Kasia Anderson ’97, a friend of Gaubatz’s. “Several
times it was suggested the funds be co-opted into already-existing campus
projects [such as arboretum plans], but we stuck by the jungle gym idea.”

The students have run into several difficulties in attempting to set up the
memorial. Anderson described College bureaucracy as “jumping through
hurdles,” and said that the project was almost canceled a month ago.
However, its completion seems more and more likely.

The Class of ’94 has become involved, with alums helping, among other
things, to design the structure. The students behind the memorial hope to
make it a community project during Senior Week, and hope to allow anyone
interested to assist in the construction.

The proposed jungle gym will be mostly made of cargo nets and hammocks,
with steel pipes holding it up, located near the Swing Tree area behind
Sharples. Interested students should contact Anderson at
