Happy bicentennial, IU LETTER FROM THE EDITOR The school that would eventually become known as Indiana University was founded Jan. 20, 1820, in Corydon, Indiana, as the State Seminary. I don’t know if the founders believed the school would last — in whatever form — for 200 years, but it is still incredible to think this institution has been here for so long. IU’s cream-and-crimsonstreaked history has touched the world in more ways than many of us even realize, from fluoride toothpaste to Steak ‘n Shake. It is impossible to know what will be added to IU’s legacy by the students who are here today or those who will come after us, but we can only hope the next two centuries will be as good as the last. Being here in this moment, able to witness such a big milestone, is a wonderful reminder that each one of us is also part of IU’s history. The IDS is celebrating IU this coming week by taking a look back at what has happened over the past two centuries to see how the campus, its people and its ideas have evolved over time. Our Thursday paper, with the orginal IDS masthead design, is a special commemorative edition filled exclusively with content examining IU and its 200year history, from a selection of notable alumni to what places on campus used to look like. We will continue to update online content as bicentennialrelated events take place Monday, so you can see the celebration no matter where you are in the world. Happy birthday, IU. Here’s to many more.

IU Bicentennial events honor university’s history By Cate Charron | @catecharron

The Office of the Bicentennial has planned A Day of Commemoration to honor the university’s 200th anniversary Monday. The university has been determined to grow since its founding, IU Spokesperson Chuck Carney said. He said building for the future includes working to develop new areas of study and schools within the university. “It’s really been more than a celebration, but a look backward at what we achieved and a look forward in what we plan to achieve,” Carney said. The bicentennial is an important way to recognize IU's history, University His-

torian James Capshew said. Diversifying the narrative is still a work in progress, though. It requires uncovering stories focused on women, minorities and staff. “IU’s history is part of their identity,” Capshew said. “So trying to understand that, how it’s developed, and where it’s going to be in the future is really what the Bicentennial is about.” Here are five events taking place on A Day of Commemoration. Big Red 200 Supercomputer Dedication Ceremony The ceremony commemorates the Big Red 200 Supercomputer at 10 a.m. at the Cyberinfrastructure Building. The event includes a reception, tours of the data

center and opening remarks from President Michael McRobbie and three other speakers. The event will be live-streamed at Inaugural Ringing of the Arthur R. Metz Bicentennial Grand Carillon The carillon will ring for the first time at 11:45 a.m. in the IU Arboretum. Members of the Jacobs School of Music will play the instrument. The carillon includes 65 bells and will replace the tower on 10th Street and Fee Lane. 200th Anniversary Luncheon This invite-only luncheon will unveil SEE EVENTS, PAGE 6

Medals designed to showcase IU's past and future By Luzane Draughon | @luzdraughon

IU’s Bicentennial celebrates individuals and organizations who have positively contributed to the institution throughout its history. Approximately 1,500 crafted Bicentennial Medals themselves have their own significance, honoring those improvements. “Anyone who receives a medal is getting a piece of IU history,” Hackerd said.  The Bicentennial Medal is a physical representation of the reach of IU’s impact on the local, global and international community, assistant professor of Architecture Jeeyea Kim said. “I was really lucky and fortunate to be a part of this project,” Kim said. Kim worked on designing the medal from spring 2018 until summer 2019. She said her vision for the design was to take a contemporary approach that would encompass both the past and the future of IU’s reach in the world. There was an open competition any faculty member, student or artist from around the world could

enter, Kim said. The committee received around 30 designs, Jeremy Hackerd, project manager for the Bicentennial, said. The committee didn't know who made the design when choosing, Kim said. When designing her medal, Kim said she first focused on the context of Indiana and how IU is central to everything in the states. Kim said she wanted to show the connected network of IU through a ripple effect on the medal with IU-Bloomington as the starting point. Kim said her favorite aspect is how the side of the medal is not flat, but follows the texture of the surface. She liked how the light reflects on the medal, showing off brighter and darker spots. “The medals are beautiful and really well-crafted,” she said. The Bicentennial Medals are cast from the bronze recovered from the bells that used to be a part of the Student Building, Hackerd said. The bells were damaged in a 1990 fire and sat instorage for decades. Hackerd said Indiana Metal Craft melted SEE MEDALS, PAGE 6

The evolution of IU’s spirit wear By Lizzie Kaboski

In the course of history, 200 years is not a long time. However, 200 years is the difference between cream and crimson versus crimson and black and other fashion trends that have transitioned to the styles that students and fans wear today. The famous colors and styles that now adorn IU’s campus weren’t always the norm. According to an article published by the thennamed Indiana Student in 1888, the school colors were crimson and black. In 1903, the renamed Daily Student published an article declaring that the cream and crimson duo were the official IU colors. The Sage Fashion Collection at IU’s Eskenazi Museum of Art houses 24 pieces of IUrelated items and apparel, with most dating back to the early 1900s.  “Most of the oldest pieces are red cardigans and letter sweaters with the letter I on the front,” said Kelly Richardson, curator of the Sage Fashion Collection. Richardson said that their oldest item is a cream-andcrimson graduation dress dating back to 1879. Spirit wear started in the early-

For 200 years, many IU athletes have made history and changed the world both on and off the field. Here is a list of just a few who made history. Will Bruin Will Bruin played three seasons for IU men’s soccer where he scored an impressive 33 career goals. After his IU soccer career, Bruin was drafted to the Houston Dynamo where he played for five seasons. He joined the MLS team the Seattle Sounders in 2016 where he scored 11 goals in his 2017 season.

to-mid-20th century, when sports teams had logos printed to identify one team from the other. It wasn’t until the 1960s-70s that fans started wearing those logos on Tshirts. “It is the ultimate souvenir, like a personal billboard,” said Richardson. While the T-shirt trend

has remained, styles have expanded to include a variety of different crops and cuts for fashion-forward fans to choose from. In 2012, PINK and Victoria’s Secret produced distressed IU sweatshirts with rhinestones and crystals, bringing a new level of glam to spirit wear. “New styles are much

more on the fashionable side,” Richardson said. The most authentic apparel item is the candystriped pants worn by the basketball team in the 1970s, Richardson said. The pants, still worn today, maintain the cream and crimson colors that are true to modern-day IU.



Here’s how IU started 200 years ago By Shelby Anderson | @ShelbyA04288075

When classes first began at IU in 1825, there were only 10 students, all of them men. They could choose to study either Greek or Latin. Today, IU students can choose from up to 1,000 majors and can even create their own. The institution was founded in 1820 as the State Seminary. The state government assigned 6 square miles to be used for a higher education facility.  “The seminary really was not a college,” University Historian James Capshew said. “It wasn’t a university, it was like an in between the high school and the college.” The delegates who wrote the state Constitution of 1816 wanted to create an opportunity for higher education for the people of Indiana.  “They mandated the General Assembly to establish a system of public education that embraced both secondary and university education and would

IU’s first class began attending in 1825 and included 10 male students, according to the document. Originally, students could only study Greek and Latin until Reverend Andrew Wylie became president in 1829 and emphasized the

importance of studying professions such as law, medicine, theology and pedagogy, Capshew said. Today students have hundreds of different majors to choose from. It was not until 1828 that the Seminary became Indiana College. This change required the school to hire its third staff member, selecting Andrew Wylie to be the first president. In 1838, the name was

changed to Indiana University. David Starr Jordan became the university’s president in 1885 and began emphasizing research , Capshew said. Today, IU is ranked as one of the top 50 research universities in the country by BestCollegeReviews. org.

Hoagy Carmichael and other IU performers By Hannah Johnson

IU has been home to some of the world’s most distinguished artists. Through the Jacobs School of Music, art programs and Bloomington’s thriving local arts scene, the university has churned out numerous prominent performers. In celebration of two centuries of artistic excellence, here’s a look back at a few of IU’s most notable composers, instrumentalists, singers, actors and producers throughout the years. Hoagy Carmichael Hoagy Carmichael’s “Stardust,” one of the mostrecorded American standards of the 20th century, was created during Carmichael’s time at IU. Hoagy Carmichael, taking a stroll through the IU campus, supposedly ducked into a local hangout spot called “The Book Nook” — where Buffalouie’s now is — and composed the melodically challenging masterpiece. Carmichael earned his bachelor’s degree in 1925, and he completed his law degree at the university as well. He was active in the community as a musician. He would go on to compose a number of vastly popular pieces throughout his life, including “Georgia On My Mind” and “Heart and Soul.” David Baker After completing a bachelor’s and master’s degree in music education by 1954, David Baker performed as a jazz trombonist in bands led by Stan Kenton and Maynard Ferguson, among others. He is known for mentoring famous jazz musicians Freddie Hubbard and Larry Ridley and authored numerous books and articles on jazz. Baker returned to IU as a faculty member for the Jacobs School of Music, where he established the school’s jazz studies program, in the 1960s. Booker T. Jones When Booker T. Jones started studying music composition at IU in the 1960s, he had already composed “Green Onions,” one of history’s most popular instrumental songs. Jones pledged to the Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity and played trombone in the Marching Hundred. He also traveled to Memphis, Tennessee, on the weekends to perform with his band, the M.G.’s. Four Grammys later, Jones has gone down in history as a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer. He was awarded an honorary doctorate from IU in 2012. Chris Botti Grammy-winning trum-

peter Chris Botti studied at the Jacobs School of Music before he left school his senior year in 1984 to tour with Frank Sinatra and Buddy Rich. From there, he toured with an impressive list of musicians and as a solo artist, released a string of successful trumpet albums and gained a fanbase that includes Oprah Winfrey. Sylvia McNair Sylvia McNair earned a master’s in music from IU in 1983. Twenty-three years later, she returned to IU to join the music school faculty. During the time in between, McNair performed with major opera companies, recorded music and won two Grammys. Joshua Bell Joshua Bell, a worldrenowned violin player and Bloomington native, has become a living legend in his hometown. After completing his violin studies in 1989, Bell won a number of awards, including one Grammy. He collaborated with the world’s most elite composers and became a famous performer. Bell joined the music school faculty in 2007.


Hoagy Carmichael plays the piano. Carmichael completed both his bachelor's degree and law degree at IU and was an active musician in the community.

Ryan Murphy Writer, director and producer Ryan Murphy studied journalism at IU in the 1980s and worked as a journalist at multiple publications before he began writing scripts in the ‘90s. Since then, Murphy has created TV shows such as “Glee,” “American Horror Story” and “The Politician.” Jamie Hyneman Best known for starring in “MythBusters” opposite Adam Savage, Jamie Hyneman started out as a Russian linguistics student at IU and graduated in 1981. Hyneman worked behind the camera as a special effects technician for films and commercials before his partnership with Savage. In addition to “MythBusters,” the pair also made cameos on TV shows such as “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “The Simpsons.” Jonathan Banks Although he had to drop out before finishing his degree in the 1960s, Jonathan Banks began as a student at IU. Banks started in theater by working backstage in the touring stage production of “Hair.” He would eventually receive recognition and seven Emmy nominations for his work in shows such as “WiseGuy,” “Breaking Bad” and “Better Call Saul.” Banks returned to IU last October to give a speech and was awarded the IU Bicentennial Medal. Kevin Kline


David Baker appears in a photo from the IU Archives. After spending his career performing as a jazz trombonist, Baker returned to IU as a faculty member for the Jacobs School of Music.

Kevin Kline started out as a music student before transitioning to acting. Since graduating in 1970, Kline has won an Oscar and three Tony Awards and is known for his roles in “A Fish Called Wanda,” “Sophie’s Choice” and “The Pirates of Penzance.” In 2014, Kline received an honorary doctoral degree from IU. Andreas Katsulas Andreas Katsulas earned a master’s degree in theater in 1969 before finding success in movies and television. Katsulas began his career as a stage actor but

became known for his roles in “Babylon 5,” “The Fugitive” and “Next of Kin.” Trista Sutter Local fans of “The Bachelor” franchise may not know that IU had a small role in its sister show’s early history. The very first Bachelorette, Trista Sutter – then Trista Rehn – is an IU alumna who graduated in the ‘90s. She is still married to her “Bachelorette” love interest, Ryan Sutter, and appeared on other reality shows such as “Dancing with the Stars” and “Fear Factor.”

IU Bicentennial's 'Big Red Bus' to travel, celebrate IU history By Luke Christopher Norton

IU’s Office of the Bicentennial is taking IU’s history on the road with its interactive exhibit “All for You,” otherwise known as the “Big Red Bus.” The bus tour began in September and will visit all 92 counties in Indiana by August 2020.  "Our goal is for visitors to gain a better understanding of how Indiana University impacts the state of Indiana," said Jeremy Hackerd, project manager


CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 the bells down and cast the final design of the medals. The Bicentennial Medal is awarded to people or organizations who have affected

for the Office of the Bicentennial. "Hopefully the exhibit will inspire people to apply for admission, support university programs or get involved in some other way." Hackerd said the exhibit’s main focus is to inform Indiana residents of IU’s affect on the state and how the university has improved their lives. The bus features content from every IU campus and includes historical images, objects from IU’s collections such as old athletic equipment and a cham-

pionship ring from the 2012 NCAA College Cup, small models of significant sites and objects including Showalter Fountain and the Old Oaken Bucket and even a virtual reality experience of every IU campus. “We reached out to all the collections at every campus and asked what materials they might have to tell the history of IU,” said Heather Calloway, executive director of University Collections at IU. “We have either an artifact, video or photo from every campus.” The bus also includes

a map of the state depicting locations of all nine IU campuses, interactive touch screen monitors for the viewing of short films along with other artifacts from IU’s history. The bus stopped Nov. 6 at South Central Community School Corporation in Union Mills, Indiana. Superintendent Theodore Stevens booked the bus after seeing a press release and said he wanted his students to experience an exhibit from a large university. “It’s exciting because our school is so small, and

to have one of the largest universities in the state of Indiana have an exhibit for us is really exciting,” Stevens said. The Office of the Bicentennial has also included an interactive virtual tour of the Big Red Bus itself online.  Visits from the bus can be booked online through the Office of the Bicentennial’s website. The Office of the Bicentennial will announce bus stops on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram along with its website’s events page.

IU in a positive way, said Peg Faimon, founding dean of Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design and member of the Bicentennial Medal Committee. Faimon said examples include someone who has helped students, positively affected IU faculty

or given back to the university as a whole. The eligibility and nomination forms can be found on the IU Bicentennial website, Hackerd said. Kim said the nominations can be submitted by anyone. The first recipient of this

award was Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb, Kim said. Hackerd said 507 Bicentennial Medals have been awarded thus far. Faimon said the medals are awarded at specific medal ceremonies or existing events. The faculty in the Eske-

nazi School had an exhibition in the Evansville Museum of Arts, Science and History at which one member of the Board of Trustees awarded a few Bicentennial Medals, Faimon said. There will also be one on Founders Day, Jan. 20.

Students participate in a capture-the-flag-themed class scraps in 1909. Class scraps were annual events that took place at a variety of locations across campus.

Brawls: IU’s first form of athletic competition By Grace Ybarra | @gynbarra

Before championship banners and bike races, IU athletics took shape in a much more violent form of competition — brawls. Since organized sports weren’t introduced at IU until the end of the 19th century, students found entertainment in a form of intramurals known as class scraps. These violent and physical contest started in the 1820s and were typically fought between freshman and sophomore classes. “I think that a lot of it was just all-out brawls really,” Director of University Archives Dina Kellams, said. The scraps often resulted in broken bones, lost teeth and damage to university property. But the violence wasn’t limited to the formal brawls. Classes also participated in acts of warfare against one another including hair cutting, painting students, tying students to trees and taking students hostage. “They were really vio-

lent,” Kellams said. “There were years when students were seriously injured.” Class scraps stemmed from a dislike of Latin, Kellams said. Sophomores were required to read Horace in Latin for class and cel-

ebrated finishing the class by burning their books. But one year, the freshmen opposed the burning of the books, and a fight broke out. This sparked a tradition of brawls that became known as the Burning

of Horace. Kellams said these scraps became more organized, and classes began publishing challenges for their opposition on homemade broadside sheets of paper. These brawls took place

annually across campus. Kellams said the scraps were held in the Old Crescent area, Dunn’s Woods and Jordan Field, an athletic field previously located where the Indiana Memorial Union parking lot now is.


Students participate in class scraps in 1924. Class scraps were a form of intramurals that students took part in starting in the 1820s.

Over the course of the century, the brawls evolved to include other forms of chaos. A popular scrap tradition was called “Flag Rush,” in which a class would hang its class flag on a tree and defend it from the other grade, Kellams said. The violence and damage caused by these brawls didn’t go unnoticed by university administration. IU President William Lowe Bryan worked hard to eliminate the scraps at the beginning of the 20th century. Kellams said there are a series of letters to the student body in which he told them not to meet and fight. Other sports were slowly introduced to the university and the scraps eventually died out at the end of the 1920s . “It may be that the administration was successful in refocusing student’s energy by helping establish these other activities,” Kellams said. “It might be because they were working really hard to ban the scraps and any sort of hazing.”

History of the Old Brass Spittoon and Old Oaken Bucket Dylan Wallace | @D_Wall1

Every IU football season, two games allow the Hoosiers to receive more than just a “W” in the win column. In those games, played against Michigan State and Purdue, the teams fight for special trophies every year. The Old Brass Spittoon When IU plays Michigan State on Sept. 28 this year, both teams will be competing for a prize originated in 1950. IU and Michigan State had played four times before 1950, and IU won three of the games. In 1950, after Michigan State beat University of Notre Dame by three, junior class president Gene McDermott didn’t

want the Spartans to get upset by the Hoosiers the following week. According to Michigan State’s student paper, The State News, McDermott was inspired by the Little Brown Jug, which was a trophy between Michigan and Minnesota, he went to an antique shop in Lansing, Michigan, to find something similar. It was there where he spotted the brass spittoon. IU accepted the offer to play for the spittoon, and Michigan State handily kept the prize in its possession with a 35-0 victory. Michigan State leads the alltime series for the Spittoon 47-16-2. The last time the Hoosiers won the coveted spitting can was 2016 when they defeated the Spartans

24-21 in overtime at Memorial Stadium. IU hasn’t won back-to-back brass spittoons since 1993-94. The Old Oaken Bucket When the Hoosiers and Boilermakers square off Nov. 30 in the final regular season game, they will battle for a trophy started in 1925. The idea of a trophy was proposed in a meeting between the Chicago chapters of the IU and Purdue alumni organizations. IU alumnus Dr. Clarence Jones and Purdue alumnus Russel Gray came up with the idea that it should be an oaken bucket. They claimed the oaken bucket is the most typical form of a Hoosier trophy SEE SPITTOON, PAGE 13

A brief history of Hoosier athletics As IU celebrates its 200th year of existence, plenty of Hoosier teams have supplied memories for us to look back on. Although the university opened in 1820, organized sports at IU were not created until 47 years later. It started with baseball in 1867, followed by football in 1886 and basketball in 1898. Since then, Hoosier faithfuls have witnessed peaks and valleys of IU Athletics. Here’s a timeline in nine headlines of the top moments in Indiana University sports.

IU National Titles Men’s basketball 1940, 1953, 1976, 1981, 1987 Men’s soccer 1982, 1983, 1988, 1998, 1999, 2003, 2004, 2012 Men’s cross-country 1938, 1940, 1942 Men’s swimming and diving 1968, 1969, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1973 Men’s wrestling 1932 Men’s outdoor track and field 1932 Women’s tennis 1982, AIAW Women’s basketball 2018 WNIT 1968




IU football improbably appears in Rose Bowl

Bob Knight is hired as IU men’s basketball head coach

Mark Spitz wins seven gold medals at the Summer Olympics

While their performance in the game was less than impressive, IU football’s appearance in the Rose Bowl still marks a high point in program history. IU was coming off an 1-8-1 season in 1966. The Hoosiers would follow that up with a 9-1 record in 1967 and finished ranked No. 4 nationally, their first winning season since 1958. IU would eventually lose to the OJ Simpson-led University of Southern California Trojans 14-3.

Knight spent 29 seasons as IU basketball’s head coach. In that time, the Hoosiers won three national championships, appeared in the Final Four five times and won the Big Ten regular season title 11 times. Knight won a total of 662 games with the Hoosiers, the most in program history.

Just after winning a national title in 1972 and graduating from IU the same year, Mark Spitz geared up for the Olympics in Munich. Following up on a four medal performance in 1968 (two gold, one silver, one bronze), Spitz totaled a then-record seven gold medals in Munich. Spitz set four individual world records, winning the 100-metre and 200-metre in the freestyle and butterfly. Spitz was also a part of three world record-setting relay teams. (400-metre freestyle, 800-metre freestyle, and 400-metre medley). Spitz’s held the record with seven gold medals until Michael Phelps broke it in 2008. PHOTO COURTESY OF IU ARCHIVES

IU wins sixth straight Swimming and Diving Championship

IU men’s soccer team gained varsity status

IU women’s tennis wins AIAW national championship

IU men’s soccer is now arguably the best collegiate program in the history of the sport. Since 1973, IU won eight national championships, has the highest win percentage in the country and appeared in 20 college Cup appearances. Since the Big Ten began hosting a postseason tournament in 1991, the Hoosiers have won it 14 times, while no other team has more than three. IU has eight national championships to date since 1973, second only to St. Louis with 10, who won their last title the same year IU gained varsity status.

Led by singles champion Heather Conner and coach Lin Loring, IU women’s tennis won the national championship held by the AIAW, short for the Association for Intercollegiate Athletics for Women. The AIAW led the charge in women’s intercollegiate athletics during a time when the NCAA gave them little attention. Heather Conner defeated All-American and No. 1-seeded Vicki Nelson in the singles championship. Indiana would move to the NCAA the next year, as the AIAW folded in June of 1982. Loring is now the winningest coach in Division I women’s tennis history with 846, 804 coming with IU. The 1982 national championship is IU’s lone championship in women’s athletics.

In the midst of a dynasty, the Indiana men’s swimming and diving team took home the NCAA title for the sixth consecutive year. Led by coach James Counsilman, the Hoosiers totaled 358 points in the championship, which beat the 294 scored by the University of Tennessee. The streak of six NCAA titles in a row set a new record, a mark that still stands today.

Now Hiring: Advertising Account Executive

2000 Bob Knight fired On March 14, 2000, a story accusing Knight of choking former player Neil Reed in 1997 ran on the CNN Sports Illustrated network. Knight denied the claims, but later-released tape appeared to show Knight placing his hands on Reed’s neck. This resulted in a “zero tolerance” policy for Knight at IU, and he was fired in September of the same year. Knight coached at Texas Tech from 2001 until retiring in 2008. IU basketball has had five head coaches since PHOTO COURTESY OF IU ARCHIVES Knight was fired. Bob Knight throws a chair. Knight was fired in 2000.



Christian Watford sinks buzzer beater against No. 1 Kentucky

IU baseball makes College World Series

Coined the “Wat Shot”, a last-second heave by Christian Watford buried Kentucky’s hopes of an undefeated season. The shot would win Play of the Year at the ESPYs the following year and was a defining moment in the Hoosiers’ turn-around following a dismal three-year stretch after head coach Kevin Sampson was fired. The 2011-12 season was head coach Tom Crean’s first winning season at IU at 27-9, and knocked off three top-five teams. This came after Crean’s Hoosiers posted records of 6-25, 10-21 and 12-20 the three previous years. Crean would finish with a 166-135 record before being fired in March 2017.

For the first time in program history, Indiana advanced to the College World Series. The Hoosiers finished with a record of 48-17 on its way to both a Big Ten regular season title and tournament championship. Sophomore Kyle Schwarber went on a 10-game hitting streak in the postseason as Indiana swept Florida State to make it to Omaha. After beating Louisville in the first round, IU lost in the second round, concluding its best season ever.

Whichever team wins the game, its respective letter will become the main one on the bucket. In the inaugural Old Oaken Bucket game, the Hoosiers and Boilermakers ended in a 0-0 tie, which created the first “I-P” to be added to the chain. Purdue leads the all-time series 74-41-6. IU recently had a dominant run in the Old Oaken Bucket game with four consecutive wins from 2013-16. But Purdue has won the last two, and both losses prevented IU from making a postseason bowl game.


The Hoosiers sing the Indiana fight song after defeating Purdue 23-16 on in 2014 at Memorial Stadium, keeping the Old Oaken Bucket in Bloomington for another year.

Editors Abby Malala and Tom Sweeny

IU’s bicentennial brings in billions,

but all for who? Tom Sweeney is a senior in economics and mathmatics.


he newly constructed Metz Carillon, an instrument made of bells in a tower that cost $7 million, will be rung on Monday in celebration of IU’s bicentennial. It was paid for using special discretionary funds controlled by President Michael McRobbie. The bell tower encapsulates the features of the IU Bicentennial that will become its legacy: large-scale, expensive construction and publicity organized by university leaders in the face of students’ desire to focus on financial assistance and historical commemoration. Documents from the university and IU Foundation, the private fundraising arm of IU, seem to validate concerns from students about how IU’s bicentennial initiatives have developed in recent years. Students hoped to learn more about the university’s 200-year history, but instead witnessed relentless institutional and capital expansion efforts, all while the university raised billions of dollars in gifts and reduced its own expenses on student financial aid. Financial records available online suggest that the IU Bicentennial brought unprecedented growth for the institution’s financial portfolio, including campus infrastructure and new forms of investment such as venture capital, without much to show in direct assistance to students.  Bicentennial programming across various university offices stands in stark contrast to the vision of a history-themed celebration offered by students, faculty, staff and alumni, as several project ideas endorsed by students were apparently abandoned for various reasons. Students wanted history A report from the Bicentennial Steering Committee, a group of faculty, staff and students appointed by McRobbie in January 2016, outlines a vision of the IU Bicentennial that seems to have been left behind. The Steering Committee’s report describes its purpose as helping “establish a common intellectual framework for Indiana University’s Bicentennial, and to identify core principles and values.” Students wanted the bicentennial to be about history. According to the report, feedback from a survey and focus groups commissioned by the committee found that students “from all campuses” expressed a primary interest in opportunities to introduce historical education to the student body, including in IU course curriculums. Many of the proposals became “Signature Projects” organized by the Office of the Bicentennial, which is directed by McRobbie’s deputy chief of staff. One of the student ideas recommended by the com-

Budgets for IU’s capital projects Below are the totals from IU’s budgets on capital spending since the beginning of the bicentennial campaign in 2015.

mittee was a state-wide competition modeled after “The Amazing Race,” a reality television show in which teams follow clues and complete challenges around the world. According to a webpage on the Bicentennial Office’s website, the idea was to involve IU and Bloomington community members in “feats of trivia, athleticism and discovery” around all of IU’s campuses. Plans for the event have not been announced, and its webpage is not currently linked on the Bicentennial Office’s online list of Signature Projects. Another idea originally picked up and later shelved was a new museum. According to the Bicentennial Office’s website, the planned IU Museum would “draw from the existing archival holdings of papers, objects, and collections from nearly 200 years of history.” However, the webpage says that “after extensive review and consultation,” the project was put on hold. To add to the disappointment, a time capsule buried in 1922, which was to be found with the help of student interns and opened this weekend, was eventually located under the parking lot of Kroger in Seminary Square, according to the office. Plans to open it were abandoned because the parking lot is privately owned.  Some proposals that did take root, however, became IU marketing tools. The Bicentennial Office took up the report’s idea to create a traveling historical exhibit that would visit all of Indiana’s 92 counties. Yet the “Big Red Bus,” as McRobbie called it, is more akin to a marketing campaign on wheels than a small museum. An interactive virtual tour of the bus shows historical items resting between large crimson-colored panels which boast of IU achievements and follow the bicentennial branding used in IU marketing materials. “All for You,” the bus campaign, is a slogan echoed on a billboard with the same logo on Interstate 69.  An openly stated objective of the campaign is increasing admissions. “Hopefully the exhibit will

inspire people to apply for admission, support university programs or get involved,” Jeremy Hackerd, project manager for the Bicentennial Office, told the Indiana Daily Student in November. Billions of dollars raised and spent Meanwhile, financial documents available online show a multi-billion-dollar spending blitz on capital projects, which include building and land purchases, since the announcement of the University’s Bicentennial Strategic Plan in December 2014. According to university financial audits, annual cash spent on capital and related expenses nearly doubled from Fiscal Year 2014 to its peak in Fiscal Year 2017. Recent and upcoming projects have had some of the highest price tags of any listed in capital project records available on IU’s Capital Planning and Facilities website. The records date back to July 2007. The Bicentennial Strategic Plan cites $625 million as the expected cost of renovations intended to be completed this year, much of which uses state funding, according to online budgets. However, university funding has been used for staggering expenses such as renovations of Memorial Stadium, which cost $53 million, and Wells Quad, which cost $30 million. Building athletics infrastructure and renovating Wells Quad are part of the “action items” in the Bicentennial Strategic Plan. The large construction projects would not be possible without the Bicentennial Campaign, the primary fundraising campaign of IU Foundation. The foundation says the campaign has raised more than $3 billion. The trend of expensive capital projects will continue after the bicentennial. In the works now is a new residence hall with a budget just shy of $100 million, announced alongside hikes in student tuition and fees, which faced the ire of the IDS Editorial Board. A new health sciences building and IU-Purdue University Indianapolis construction have received budgets

of $40 million, too. The Bicentennial Campaign has been a runaway success. Revenue from donor contributions increased 94% after just three years of the campaign entering its public phase in 2015, according to the Foundation’s financial audits. It’s another fundraising victory for McRobbie, who already has one title for “most successful fundraising campaign in university history” under his belt, thanks to a matching campaign that ended in 2010. At the same time, the university has decreased its annual expenses on student financial aid, university financial documents show. While the net price of attendance, defined as the cost of attendance remaining after gift aid, has decreased slightly due to new privately endowed scholarships, the amount that the university has opted to spend on financial aid has actually dropped off since the announcement of the Bicentennial Plan. In other words, the financial records prompt the question of whether current students are paying for the university’s capital spending spree. The president’s priorities Class and athletics buildings are only part of the Bicentennial spending story. This Monday’s events have become so extensive that the university canceled its annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day breakfast and combined MLK Day and Bicentennial events. The Bicentennial festivities will feature several special projects funded at least in part by McRobbie’s little-known resource of discretionary foundation funds, according to an IU Foundation report. A small group of donors known as the Well House Society contribute unrestricted funds for the president’s discretionary use intended to help the university “meet the greatest need.” More than $27 million dollars of such funds have been raised by the foundation as part of the Bicentennial Campaign. According to IUF policy, the first priority for all unrestricted donations is given to the president to use at his discretion “to meet extraordinary needs or targets of

Memorial Stadium Renovations — $53,000,000 Global and International Studies Building — $53,000,000 Academic Health Sciences Building — $45,000,000 Luddy Hall — $39,800,000 Assembly Hall Renovation — $30,800,000 Wells Quad Renovation — $30,000 *Denotes still under construction SOURCE | IU Capital Planning and Facilities unusual opportunity of special benefit to the University.” They have been used in the past for emergency scholarships and cultural programs. According to the foundation, however, McRobbie has used the unrestricted checkbook to fund expensive special projects for the Bicentennial such as restorations of a courtyard outside Maxwell Hall, an administrative building and a large circus carriage with steam whistles, called the IU calliope. The discretionary funds have also paid for murals commemorating the Bicentennial and the Metz Carillon, both to be featured in events on Monday.  The clock tower has been the subject of much frustration from students on Twitter and social media platforms, who have lamented the idea that the bell tower has been prioritized over new counselors or functional WiFi. Even though IU resources are often restricted for certain uses, students have a point. The president’s discretionary funds in particular merit more scrutiny.  The bicentennial legacy Building on campus is part of the eight “Bicentennial Priorities” outlined in the Bicentennial Strategic Plan. Other initiatives attributed to the Bicentennial Priorities include Grand Challenges, a multi-million-dol-

lar program to fund three medical and scientific research projects, and IU Ventures, a new venture capital corporation which business commentators have said could be “game changer” in the Midwest’s biotechnology startups industry. A blurb for Grand Challenges ends with a reassurance: “IU will continue to support the creative and scholarly activities of its artists and humanists.” More reassurance about the university’s priorities will be necessary McRobbie and IU leadership have turned the Bicentennial into the largest institutional expansion in its recent history. What was once intended to be a celebration of the past with current community members has become, in large part, a capital projects spectacle and marketing opportunity. The president’s gambit may prove successful in the end, and the investments may pay off for future IU students. Nevertheless, current students, especially the Class of 2020, which was labeled the “Bicentennial Class,” seem right to think they paid for it. Whatever the legacy of the bicentennial, the IU community should ask: Whom was it all for? @thesweeners

President McRobbie shares what IU’s Bicentennial means to him


An anti-war protest occurs Oct. 31, 1967, at the IU Auditorium when the United States Secretary of State Dean Rusk came to campus to deliver a speech. The spirit of protesting has remained at Indiana University for decades and lives on today.

Where did IU’s protests go? Abby Malala is a senior in cinema studies.

The campus-wide riots following the firing of former IU men’s basketball coach Bob Knight in 2000 are the most infamous protests to take place at IU-Bloomington. However, these protests were not a result of political turmoil. Knight was fired after freshman Kent Harvey alleged the coach grabbed him by the arm and lectured him after Harvey tried to catch Knight’s attention. After Knight gained a reputation for throwing chairs and intimidating fellow IU employees, students removed bronze statues of fish from Showalter Fountain and even burned effigies of former IU President Myles Brand and Harvey in response to Knight’s firing.

The last time IU’s Bloomington campus had seen such unadulterated public outcry was probably in the 1960s and ‘70s at the height of the Vietnam War and the Civil Rights Movement. IU students protested former President Richard Nixon announcing U.S. involvement in Cambodia, the Dow Chemical Company recruiting on campus and the university increasing tuition. There was even a sit-in the day before Little 500 in 1968 over racial inequality on campus. These protests brought out hordes of students and influenced change at IU in lasting ways that today’s generation might take for granted. In the past 50 years, it’s undeniable that our campus has changed for the better thanks to students who stood up and spoke

out. But we still have a long way to go. The university continually fails to properly address dangerous situations on campus-owned property, whether it be a mold outbreak or a shooting. Victims of sexual assault on campus still seek justice from systems put in place by the university that is supposed to protect them but further traumatizes them instead. And despite the efforts of IU students more than 50 years ago to make IU a more racially equal and diverse campus, the total student body remains about 65% white, a large portion considering IU’s Bicentennial Priorities of representing minorities and furthering global outreach. There is a litany of issues that endanger students pursuing a higher education, particularly minori-

ties, yet no one is destroying Showalter Fountain or burning effigies outside the president’s house. Has IU lost its once-rich spirit of dissent and in exchange gained a quiet acceptance of the issues that plague us? The spirit of protest lives on among IU student groups such as Shatter the Silence, which demanded action on sexual violence at a rally in 2018, and the activist organizations that organized climate strikes last year. But more needs to be done. Knight remained fired despite those infamous riots in the fall of 2000. But maybe IU can channel that same energy, 20 years later, for a cause that really matters. @abbymalala



In just a few days, those of us at Indiana University — and our many friends around the state, nation and world — will celebrate the 200th anniversary of the university’s founding on Jan. 20, 1820. Extensive commemorations and celebrations of this unique milestone in the life of Indiana’s namesake flagship university have been underway for some time. We have hoisted Bicentennial banners in Bloomington and on our campuses around the state and awarded Bicentennial Medals to dedicated friends and supporters of the university around the world. We are sending the “Big Red Bus,” IU’s Bicentennial traveling exhibit, to every one of Indiana’s 92 counties. And there will be many more exciting and memorable events to come in the days and months ahead. IU’s Bicentennial Year, which began July 1, 2019, and will continue through June, has provided us with a truly unique opportunity to reflect upon all IU has achieved in its previous 200 years, the many people who have made the university’s successes possible and the traditions of academic excellence that continue to be a hallmark of our great institution. At the same time, the Bicentennial has inspired us to consider what Indiana’s flagship public university will look like in its third century.  At IU, we have a strong vision for what we want to be, as well as an acute awareness of the challenges that are

coming in our third century — challenges that we believe we are well-positioned to confront. To this end, in recent years we have redoubled our commitment to providing an affordable education of the highest quality and producing more and better graduates in areas of importance to our state and nation. Likewise, we are as determined as ever to fuel an engine of prosperity for Indiana and the nation; lead the state’s international engagement; spark discoveries that will solve the state’s most pressing problems; and illuminate the boundless possibilities of human imagination and creativity.  We are also deeply committed to ensuring that IU continues to stand for truth and is a community whose members — including its outstanding, service-minded students — embrace civil discourse, tolerance, inclusive diversity and a culture of caring and human dignity among its cardinal virtues.  As these and other campus-wide efforts indicate, the IU Bicentennial is not just a celebration of our accomplishments and an extended reflection on what has come before; it is the launching pad for a new era of pride in our great institution as it is now and optimism about what promises to be an extremely bright future. Yours sincerely, Michael A. McRobbie IU President

IU art collection shows appreciation for past and future By Lauren McLaughlin

The IU Campus Art Collection is the culmination of years of art acquisition. It is made up of several smaller exhibitions found in places such as the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art, the Indiana Memorial Union, the Mathers Museum of World Cultures and the Hoagy Carmichael Room. The bicentennial has prompted the collection to recognize previous purchases and add new art around campus. Former IU President Herman B Wells began discussions with former head of the art department Henry Radford Hope in 1941 about the need for a diverse collection of worldwide art, according to the Eskenazi Museum website. About 40 years later, the Eskenazi Museum was completed. Curator of Campus Art Sherry Rouse said IU has been acquiring artwork since 1820. The most significant acquisitions began in the early 1900s in the Indiana Memorial Union when students

established an annual tradition, Rouse said. They would purchase a painting from an art exhibition called the Hoosier Salon each year. Eventually, the collection became old enough for conservation, but it was scattered across multiple locations, Rouse said. So Rouse and Kathryn Chattin, assistant curator of campus art, reorganized and continued to preserve the collection. “It’s great when we can continue something that started so long ago,” Chattin said. For the bicentennial celebrations, a new mural was added in the Wright Quad dining hall to add to the collection of murals depicting IU throughout the decades. Rouse said she is hoping for a good response from students, especially because the mural has modern and traditional aspects. According to the Office of the Bicentennial website, there are also new murals in Presidents Hall to represent IU’s “Lux et Veritas” motto. The Campus Art Collection features pieces from Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas.


The Campus Art Collection features several smaller collections found at different locations, such as the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art, the Indiana Memorial Union, the Mathers Museum of World Cultures and the Hoagy Carmichael Room.

The collection also features art from ancient civilizations, such as ancient Mesoamerica, Mesopotamia and northern native Ameri-

can civilizations. “We have donors who give us things from all over the world,” Rouse said. If a piece from the col-

lection is moved, students notice, art preparator Sonja Rogers said. “They become really attached too, we notice, as we

move stuff around,” Rogers said. “You’ll get a lot of response from students where they actually go, ‘You’re not taking that away, are you?’”
