History 8

History 800-GO-TO-ISU

History Created by an act of the Indiana General Assembly in 1865, Indiana State University began offering courses as Indiana State Normal School in January 1870. Established to prepare teachers for the public schools of Indiana, the Normal School’s first freshman class consisted of only 23 students.

With the addition of graduate and doctoral programs, Indiana State College achieved university status and became Indiana State University in 1965. This university status led to the development of additional new programs and degrees including programs in nursing, business, social work, fine arts, and technology.

In 1907, Indiana State Normal School began offering a four-year curriculum and quickly gained a reputation for excellence in training teachers. This success was recognized when the school’s name was changed to Indiana State Teachers College in 1929.

While much has changed since 1865, throughout its history, Indiana State has remained focused on providing a quality education that combines classroom experience and exciting opportunities for hands-on learning while maintaining an active leadership role as part of the Terre Haute and Wabash Valley communities.

History

During the middle part of the century, the college continued its growth as the curriculum expanded beyond the field of education, and in 1960 the college officially became known as Indiana State College.

Traditions Blue and White

Homecoming

In 1899, it was announced that Yale blue and white would replace the colors of salmon pink and white as the school’s official colors.

The term Homecoming was first used in print announcements for the Alumni-Varsity Basketball Game on December 9, 1916. By the year 1919, this event had became known as Blue and White Day and featured dances and entertainment for alumni of the Normal School. In 1921, the events were organized around a football game scheduled in the autumn. Bonfires and pep rallies were added to the festivities in 1922; the Blue and White Parade in 1923; and in 1937 Bette Whitmore (Kappa Kappa) was elected ISU’s first Homecoming Queen.

Book and Torch The book and torch are official symbols of the University and are featured in its seal. The book symbolizes knowledge and truth and the torch symbolizes the light of inspiration.

Donaghy Day

Traditions

Donaghy Day, named after Fred Donaghy, graduate of the Normal School (1912) and a professor of life sciences, was initiated in 1976 as a day set aside for the community to celebrate spring and to work to help beautify the campus and surrounding community.

Mascot In 1995, the University introduced Sycamore Sam to the ISU family. The blue-and-white creature is a favorite among young and old alike.

Traditions 800-GO-TO-ISU

Sycamores

Trike

In 1921, a contest was held to pick a name for the athletics teams at what was then called Indiana State Normal School. Until that time, the term “Fighting Teachers” was frequently used in press accounts of athletic contests. In January 1922, it was announced that the name Sycamores had won a popular vote of the student body. Indiana State University has used this team name ever since.

The Indiana State Tricycle Derby was first held in 1963 as a ten-lap race around the sidewalks of the Quadrangle on children’s tricycles. The races now feature men’s and women’s teams racing on specially built tricycles. For more information visit

www.indstate.edu/whyisu/history_trad.htm

Tandem This student-organized race was first conducted as part of Spring Week activities in 1970. Teams today are comprised of co-ed pairs who compete on tandem bicycles.

“I chose Indiana State because my dad, uncle, and brother attended ISU all earning degrees in teaching. Campus is small, making friends is easy, and walking to my classes takes less than five minutes. So I guess I can say I attend Indiana State for size, atmosphere, and because being a Sycamore is in my blood.”

“Don’t be afraid of failure, rejection, criticism, seeming foolish in front of your peers. ANY classroom is only as exciting and as deep as it occupants. I teach science classes, where questions are key—there is much to be learned from the questions of students. How you think, how you conceptualize, what are the unknowns to you—surely every faculty member wants to know this, and it surely beats a lecture. So be bold—you won’t be here again. Leave your mark on the lives of others.”

A note from Dr. George

“Indiana State University, and specifically my area of concentration in the School of Music, provides an opportunity for majors and non-majors to participate in our variety of classes and offerings that excite students and give them a chance to be a part of something special. Although musical expertise on an instrument or voice is what we seek, many students of other disciplines play in the band, march in the Color Guard and participate as a member of the Marching Sycamores, sing in the choir or play in our orchestra. Teaching and working with students of varied backgrounds is something we do well and I believe is at the core of education in the College of Arts and Sciences here at Indiana State. We encourage students to look for the possibilities. They are endless!”

“My favorite professor I have had so far at Indiana State is Dr. Mike Chambers. He was actually the first college professor that I experienced at ISU, and he taught my political science course. Dr. Chambers taught with such enthusiasm. His sense of humor and his ability to reach out to students was enough to make even students who didn’t like political science become eager to learn about the various topics. His class also taught me valuable lessons that I will carry on with me as I enter the business industry later down the road.

The staff at the Scott College of Business are amazing to work with, and it is obvious that they truly want students to excel at ISU. I love that the Scott College of Business offers a Career Development Center where students can seek advice about writing an effective résumé, improving interview skills, and much more.

The ISU Plan is a prepaid system of credits and cash that lets you eat in a dining hall, choose from a variety of meal times, and save money, time and the effort of preparing your own meals.

For more information visit

www.indstate.edu/reslife/foodsvc

Commons Cash As part of purchasing the ISU Plan you also receive Commons Cash—a specified amount of money (usually about $100 per semester) that can be used to eat in the Commons food court of Hulman Memorial Student Union. Here you have a choice of restaurants that include: • Burger King • Einstein Bros. Bagels • Mein Bowl Authentic Asian Cuisine • Pizza Hut • Sub Connection • Taco Bell

College of Variety, Choice, Nursing, andHealth Convenience and Human Services

You pay for the ISU Plan as part of your residence hall fees. Over 1,300 credits will be applied to your student ID card each semester to be used to purchase meals in the dining halls. Each meal has an assigned number of credits; for example breakfast is six credits. Meals are all you can eat— and there’s a lot for you to eat. Food options include: • Breakfast (you can create your own omelet) • Fresh salads • Sandwiches • Pizza • Specially cooked meals • Hot foods and meals just like at home • Snacks (including healthy fruits and vegetables) • Special dietary meals (these can be prepared with advance notice to the food service staff)

59

Once you pay for your ISU Plan, the credits are yours as long as you continue to live on campus. At the end of each year, your credit points (those credits used for eating in the residence hall) are converted to Commons Cash to be used in the food court. Make the decision to take advantage of ISU’s residence hall dining facilities. They’re convenient, easy, inexpensive, and varied. www.indstate.edu/admissions

Blue Bucks = Off Campus Dining Indiana State University created the Blue Bucks program to be the ultimate complement to your university experience. Your Blue Bucks account is tied to your existing ISU Student ID Card, all you have to do is swipe your Student ID Card at participating (on-campus and off-campus) locations at the

time of purchase. Once swiped, your balance is deducted from your Blue Bucks account. No more digging into your spending money, late night stops at the ATM or charging up credit cards.

A note from Dr. Harris

“What I love most about teaching at ISU is the attitude that stretches across the entire campus that students come first. Indiana State University allows students so many learning opportunities based on real-world practices that can be achieved in the traditional classroom, distance classroom, laboratories, internships, and through community engagement and experiential learning. These opportunities allow students to understand how to apply their education to the real world prior to graduation, which prepares them for successful careers after graduation.� Director of Undergraduate Academic Student Services College of Technology

What’s Next? • New Student Orientation

Jump Start on Success The University’s New Student Orientation Program will bring you (and your family) to campus before fall classes begin. Orientation is designed to introduce you to our diverse academic programs, the advising and registration process, University traditions, and campus pride. These programs are compulsory for all first-time new students. Parents and families are encouraged to attend as well. Before arriving on campus for orientation, you will take an on-line placement examination. This is designed to inform your advisors of how best to prepare you for your chosen field of study.

Once on campus, you will: • Meet and form friendships with your new classmates • Stay overnight in a residence hall. (Your family will stay off campus.) 87 • Eat in a dining hall • Pose for your student ID photo • Learn about the Fall Read • Work with your academic advisor to schedule your fall classes • Explore ISU’s Learning Community Program • Enjoy some recreational time in the Student Recreation Center. (Bring a swimsuit!) New Student Orientation is offered in the summer, usually in June. A fee will be assessed to your account for orientation. For more information visit
