for both the student and the parent, so we’re here to help with that as well.

Words of advice for parents Leaders around IU give their advice to parents of incoming freshmen. Ky Freeman, President, IU Student Government

“Respect your student’s independence. It is now time for you to allow your student to invite you into their life and not force.”

Idalene Kesner,

Melanie Castillo-Cullather,

Dean, Kelley School of Business

Director, IU Asian Culture Center

“For curricular and co-curricular activities, allow your students to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and learn from those mistakes. The college experience isn’t just about the knowledge and skills that students gain, it’s also about the maturity that happens. Allow this developmental process to flourish, and your student will be better for the experience.”

“We are parents too, and we know how hard it is to glance into an empty bedroom or am empty chair in the dining table and to realize how your child has grown, so quickly. There will be tears and it’s fine to feel uncomfortable as your young person moves on to the next stage in their lives. Rest assured, a new community of caring people is here at IU who are ready to support and take care of your student.”

Scott Dolson, Director, IU Athletics “Be proud of your child and of yourselves. Indiana University is one of the premier academic institutions in the world, and it’s taken a lifetime of dedication in the classroom for your child to get to this point. Be proud of them for this accomplishment, and let them know how proud you are of them. Secondly, be proud of yourselves. Very few individuals can reach this level of academic success without a tremendous amount of support from home. Their opportunity at Indiana University is also a reflection of all that you have done for them.”



Miriam Haque,

Jill Lees,

President, Muslim Student Association

Chief of Police, IU Police Department “Congratulations on becoming a member of the Hoosier family! Connect with IUPD via social media to see our campus community engagement events and important safety information. Please remind your student to download the Rave Guardian app, IU’s safety app, which has many links to campus and community resources. I enjoy meeting and connecting with students during the academic year. IUPD is here to support your student’s success!”

“Don’t think of your freshman starting college as a departure, think of it as an arrival to the beginning of a fresh start that will help pave the path for their bright future.”

How to work with Disability Services at IU By Luke Christopher Norton | @ByLCNorton

The Office of Disability Services for Students provides resources and support to help accommodate disabled students at IU. Resources include academic accommodations, access to a van for rides around campus and the use of students’ service animals. The first step in registering with DSS is to complete a request for services form on the office’s website at student-support/disability-services. The requestor will be asked to provide documentation, if available, in this form. After completing this form, a DSS access coor-

dinator will send an email to let the requestor know if they are eligible for services based on the provided documentation, if more information is needed or that you should call to speak with the coordinator. Documentation provided to DSS must be prepared by a professional, be printed on official letterhead, or the DSS provided forms and include the professional’s name, signature and contact information. Documentation must also include a clear diagnosis of the disability, contain information supporting the request for accommodations and logic behind recommended accommodations

based on the student’s disability. The submission of Individualized Education Programs or 504 plans without supporting documentation may not meet the documentation requirements of DSS. Once approved for services, a student should schedule a meeting with their DSS access coordinator. This meeting will be used to discuss the student’s request for services, any barriers that students have faced in academics, academic accommodations and setting up their approved accommodations. Students are expected to meet with their instructors at the beginning of a term to

discuss the implementation of their accommodations. Testing accommodations can include extended time, a quiet setting in a small group, the usage of a simple calculator, enlarged print and bypassing the use of a scantron in favor of a standard test. Students with permanent mobility disabilities are able to make use of a campus van service. Apparent limitations in a student’s mobility do not require documentation. The service only operates on campus during weekdays, and students living off campus are encouraged to seek other options. Students are also able to bring qualified service

These service animals are permitted anywhere their handlers need them on campus, with some exceptions for reasons of health or safety Emotional support animals are handled differently, with these animals being permitted in student housing with approval, but not in public areas or classes at IU. Students who are diagnosed with a disability who require a service animal are not required to contact DSS or residential services for approval of their animal, but reaching

out may be helpful as the student adjusts to life on campus. Students with emotional support animals will need to reach out to DSS with appropriate documentation showing the relationship between the student’s disability and the animal’s assistance for the animal to be allowed in student housing. DSS is also able to provide services to students with temporary disabilities such as broken bones, concussions and strains. Requesters should contact DSS as soon as they can and provide documentation from a medical professional to receive appropriate accommodations.

Q&A: Mom discusses sending child to college By Izzy Myszak | @MyszakIzzy

I was the first child for my parents to send off to college. Therefore my parents did not have any idea with what to expect when it comes to sending a child to college. I have wanted to come to IU for as long as I can remember, a beautiful campus, great academic programs and the biggest seller for my mom – only an hour and a half from home. While I did not go super far away from home, it was far enough to where I would not be there all the time. I talked to mom, Angie, about what she would share with other parents when it comes to sending your kid to college.

Answers have been edited for clarity. What do you wish you knew before I left for school?

Angie: I wish I would have known how different it was going to be to not see you everyday. After those first few days I was missing you like crazy and had to resist the urge to drive up there, pack you up and just bring you back with me. I wish I would have also known more about how the academic system at IU. I was a little lost when it came to your degree and I wish I would have known more so I could have helped you out more. What advice would you give to another parent whose oldest child is going to college?

A: The first couple months is the hardest. You

expect them to be in your bedroom when you walk by. Their seat at the dinner table will be empty and you will miss them even more. Know they will make mistakes and you will too, but this is a time for everyone to grow and learn. What was the biggest surprise when I left for college?

A: You called. A lot. I was not expecting you to want to talk to me so much, but oh was I so glad you did. I was also surprised by your schedule. You had always been a bit of a night owl, but you texting me at 3 in the morning saying you were finishing your homework in the middle of the night shocked me. You were always so busy, as a freshman I was not expecting you to be so busy.

IU landmarks Showalter Fountain by Robert Laurent “The Birth of Venus,” designed by IU fine arts professor Robert Laurent, depicts the Roman goddess Venus rising from the waves on a shell surrounded by five fish (or dolphins), “an allegory for the pursuit of truth and beauty,” according to an Indiana Daily Student article from May 17, 1961. Its origins begin in the 1950s, when then-IU President Herman B Wells first commissioned it and traveled to Italy where the bronze was cast in 1958. While the design was met with criticism by some students for its lack of “modesty” and because the eye-browed fish are “ugly,” it soon became a popular hangout and part of campus culture. Tradition has it that graduating seniors jump into the fountain every May. The statue has also been at the center of numerous pranks and vandalism. All five fish disappeared when IU won the NCAA basketball championship in 1987, according to a report by the Indianapolis News. They were soon recovered, according to an IDS report. A fish had also been taken when IU won the NCAA championship in 1976. Pranksters have made the fish spout green-dyed water and have bestowed Venus with a hat or a bikini. Every few years someone attempts to steal one of the fish or rams their vehicle into the statue. Herman B Wells statue by Harold Langland This statue, dedicated shortly after Wells’ death in 2000, serves as a reminder of IU’s connection to one of its most revered figures.

According to Robert Le Bien, chair of the committee who oversaw the sculpture, the statue is meant to convey Wells’ open, “physical presence” on campus. Approved by the Board of Trustees in 1998 and sculpted by IU-South Bend professor Harold “Tuck” Langland, who also created the Ernie Pyle statue by Franklin Hall, the statue portrays Wells sitting on a park bench, his jacket unbuttoned, his tie casually blown out of place by the wind and his hand outstretched. It is a favorite tradition among Hoosier students to sit by Wells and shake his hand. In the dedication program, Le Bien wrote that Langland portrays Wells as “relaxed but engaged, not lost in contemplation.” “The sculpture portrays Wells not as bigger than life but as part of life. It shows Dr. Wells as we all knew him — as one of us.” Sample Gates The Sample Gates have become one of the most recognizable spots on campus. Despite matching the look of the oldest part of campus where it resides, the gates’ long road to construction finished only 30 years ago. “It was only put up in the 1980s, which always surprises a lot of people, myself included,” said Carrie Schwier, an outreach and public service archivist at the IU Archives who co-authored the recent book, “Indiana University Bloomington: America’s Legacy Campus.” “That architectural style fits so seamlessly into that section of campus that you think it’s been there for 100 years.” The origins of a Sample

Gates go back to the late 1890s when the graduating classes of 1899-1902 contributed to an “Arch Fund.” In 1967, the firm Eggers & Higgins submitted the design familiar to us today, a gateway made of Indiana limestone that blends with the surrounding buildings, Schwier said. It was not until the 1980s, when a gift from IU’s Director of Scholarships and Financial Aid, Edson Sample, provided the funds in honor of his parents that the construction finally took place on what we now call the Sample Gates. Ernie Pyle by Harold Langland Harold “Tuck” Langland’s statue outside Franklin Hall of IU alumnus and noted World War II journalist Ernie Pyle was commissioned in 2013 for the inauguration of the Media School. It was dedicated the following year on homecoming weekend. Langland, an IU-South Bend professor, portrayed a bronze, life-sized Pyle at his typewriter wearing a bomber jacket, helmet and goggles. A coffee cup is nearby. According to “Indiana University Bloomington: America’s Legacy Campus,” the statue is meant to “convey how Pyle worked alongside foot soldiers at the front during WW2.” Just before finishing his degree, Pyle went to pursue a career in journalism, eventually becoming a war correspondent. He won a Pulitzer Prize for his first-person stories about infantry soldiers on World War II battlefields. He died when he was hit by machine gun fire during the Battle of Okinawa in Japan.

Campus resources Q&A By Laura Gerber | @lauragerber00

Where can students get advice from before they sign a lease for off-campus housing?

Students can use Student Legal Services to receive a free lease analysis before signing a lease, according to their website. Stacee Williams, Director of Student Legal Services, said they encourage students to have their leases reviewed when they move off-campus. “Most freshmen aren’t thinking about leases when they first arrive, but it is something they have to start thinking about pretty soon,” Williams said.

What other services does Student Legal Services provide?

Student Legal Services often helps students with torts, an act that causes injury or harm to another person, such as car accidents. They also assist students who want to undergo name or gender marking changes Williams said. Williams said IU Legal Services can also meet with international students to help them adjust to the American justice system. “Parents sometimes assume students only need Student Legal Services if they’re in trouble, but often students just find themselves in situations

where they need our help,” Williams said. Student Legal Services is included in tuition and all advice and representation is free of charge to students, according to their website. Where can students get help with research and inclass research projects?

Students can use the IU library services for help finding articles or evaluating resources. “When someone is getting started with research, the amount of information can be really overwhelming,” Meredith Knoff, learning commons librarian, said. “We can

Following these accounts will help students and parents stay up to date on the happenings on and around the Bloomington campus.

@IUFYE on Instagram: As incoming students, the IU First Year Experience program account will help first year and transfer students land flat on their feet in Bloomington and connect not only with their new classmates, but also with the campus and town communities. This page primarily posts about events that FYE is hosting on their Instagram stories, but also contains information about life on campus, transferring, advising, Greek life,

and career advice with guest takeovers. Parents who follow these accounts will also be able to stay upto-date on events FYE hosts.

Unsure what your incoming student should pack? By Elizabeth DeSantis

We asked 7 freshmen from last year what their packing must-haves and mistakes were. Here is what they said. You may have seen a few lists claiming to be “The Ultimate College Packing List”, but these lists tend to be overwhelming and list over a 100 things that students “must have.” The question is, what do you really need from those lists? Here are what a few members of the class of 2024 said. Haley Hartleb Psychology, Sports Marketing and Management

What I wish I brought with me... “A Fan. Even though I have AC, if it’s really cold out, it gets really hot in the room and stays that temperature, and you can’t really change it.”

Sam Barber Marketing and Sustainable Business

Biggest packing mistake... “I definitely packed way too many pairs of shoes; I maybe brought 20 pairs of shoes but I only need like maybe five or less.”

Biggest packing mistake... “I didn’t need any dishes or things like that. I didn’t cook any of my own meals; I just ate in the dining hall.” “You don’t need to bring your own fridge or microwave, because IU has ones they rent.”

What had to be sent from home... A warmer jacket, I didn’t bring one that was warm enough, and it gets pretty cold.

What I wish I brought with me... “I forgot a mattress pad when I came first, and the bed is uncomfortable.”

Olivia Burgess Criminal Justice Biggest packing mistake... “I brought clothes for

all four seasons when I first came, and that was a big mistake. Bringing it home the first semester was awful, and I just didn’t use it. It was a waste of space.” What had to be sent from home... “More pillows, I only brought one and I definitely needed more.”

me... “Napkins. I didn’t have napkins at first, and I needed them right away. So, I went right to Target to go get them.”

What I wish I brought with me... “Definitely a vacuum. There’s always people asking for a vacuum.”

Biggest packing mistake... “My lamp. I never used it once. They gave you light on your desk so I didn’t have to use my lamp.”

Biggest packing mistake... “I think I brought too many towels and extra sheets, and I thought I’d use them but I just ended up using the same ones over and over.”

The unexpected need... “ Dehumidifier. . . We had two of those first semester and we used them. It worked so well, and I didn’t realize our room would be humid without it, but it was.”

The unexpected need... “The storage bins. I got a bunch of storage bins, and I really did not think I was going to use them, but I ended up using them all because they saved a bunch of space in my room.

like a big storage box at the end of your bed like a trunk because you can just throw the random things in there.”

Biggest packing mistake... We brought our own trash cans, and you don’t need to do that because they have trash cans”

Maria Marcantonio Marketing

Making the dorm a home... “It looks like a jail cell in there without decorations, so definitely have things like pictures on your walls.” The most common piece of packing advice that the freshman shared was not to overpack.

What I wish I brought with me... “You need, like, a water filter like a Brita because there’s not those water filter things in all the dorms.”

FYI for parents of international students A list of things I found interesting and different about America as an international student By Agness Lungu

Before coming to IU from Zambia, I made sure that I had read enough about Indiana and Bloomington to be ready. I started reading the IDS when I was still in Zambia just to make sure I knew what was happening on campus and in Bloomington. I also attended many online welcome events. Anything that came to my inbox, I registered and attended. However, no amount of preparation could have prepared me for some things.

Why didn’t anyone tell me that the outlets were so different in America? I came with my big three pin plug charger for both my phone and laptop. However, the outlets here are so small and my laptop was down for a week until I ordered a new charger. Crosswalks and no crossing. Those places on a tarred road marked with white lines for pedestrian crossing are called Zebra crossings in my country and we just cross without waiting for cars. Don’t do it here in America or you risk being run over by a speeding car. Look for the sign that tells you to wait and counts

down for you to cross. If you do not like bread, I’m sorry because there’s all sorts of bread here. If you come from a culture like mine where bread does not make it out of breakfast, you’re in for some culture shock. Some restaurants even serve bread as a side to meals! The buses do not pick you up on campus unless you are standing by the bus station. One day I spent 30 minutes standing and wondering why buses would not stop for me. I called a friend and she asked if I was standing by a stop sign. In my country the buses pick you up

from almost anywhere and the conductors ask if you’re waiting for a bus when you’re standing by the road. I know they’ve said this, but the weather here in Bloomington is always changing so always be prepared. I went to class one morning and it was hot but when I came out it was snowing. Make the weather app your friend. Before coming to America, I had never checked the weather before. Here just like you do not go anywhere before brushing your teeth, do not go anywhere before checking the weather.

The Public toilets here in America have huge spaces underneath them. Get ready to hear strangers breathing next to you in the toilet. The first time I froze because I could even see the other person’s shoes. When people ask “how are you doing” just say fine. They do not want to hear how you are actually doing. It’s just a casual greeting. I hope you like exploring different foods because Bloomington has foods from many different countries. You might even find food from your country. Explore!

Hello, IU Parents. Arbutus yearbook will be returning for the 2021-22 school year. After publication of the yearbook was halted due to COVID-19, we are happy to announce its return. The Arbutus yearbook will once again be filled with the memorable moments and groups of Indiana University. Visit for more information and purchasing details.



Donna left for school today Editor’s note: This story originally ran in the 1982 Arbutus yearbook chronicling a mother dropping off her daughter at IU in 1981. Donna left for school today. Although dried tears were forever being rep1aced by fresh ones, Donna’s mother, Drotha Bruno, insisted that she entertained no worries about her daughter’s ability to “be a fine young lady” at Indiana University. “Just like she is at home.” It was the last time Drotha would have to fight the college crowds in her career as a mother. She has packed up seven others who have made the trip, all to different schools. Now, Donna is the easiest to let go. Drotha listened, undaunted, to her daughter talk about the wonderfulness of life without curfews or stupid high school men. “She didn’t tell you guys,” Drotha interrupted, “but she thought she had too many mothers and fathers at home, with all those brothers and sisters worrying about her, too.” She wrapped a mothering arm around her

daughter’s shoulder. “I have so many mixed emotions. I’ve gone through these motions of sending them off — why, we both know them well. I just know she’ll be okay.” As for herself, with a new home in LaPorte now minus eight children, there is also a new beginning. Drotha has again started to teach school, and has a big new house to get in order. “I’m gonna sleep and just relax tomorrow,” she said as she handed her daughter another Kleenex. Donna came to school today. “Everybody says this is a party dorm,” she said, eyeing her bare McNutt Quad Walls, as she waited to get a first look at the roommate she would share them with. Sitting in her already-made bed behind her already-prepared desk on her first day of college, 18-year-old Donna Bruno became the last of a family of eight children to break the apron strings and head for school. She wasn’t scared, though. “I can’t wait to get to know all these super people from everywhere,” she said. “And the

guys have to be better than high school. They were the worst.” The guys, however, were not the only call Donna heard coming from the Big Ten. She’s going to join a sorority. She’s going to get good grades and season football and basketball tickets. But she isn’t going to miss home. “Not much, anyway.” Donna struggled to hold her tears, then

borrowed another Kleenex from a friend. But she’s not going to miss home. She is sure, and besides, there are more important things to think about right now, with a new roommate arriving any minute and the room to be decorated and new people to meet. “I’ve gotta find my mailbox,” Donna said, for an example. Her mother handed her another Kleenex.

Pop culture 101 for parents FILM What? “Breaking Away” Who/when? IU alumnus Steve Tesich wrote this 1979 movie starring Dennis Quaid among others. Tesich won the Academy Award for Best Screenplay. Why watch? “Breaking Away” is the definitive IU film about its most iconic event — the annual Little 500 cycling race. It’s a classic story of scrappy, local underdogs. Extra credit: Some things will look familiar in the movie — it was filmed in Bloomington. Does the name Cutters ring a bell? Life imitates art. Inspired by the movie, riders formed a team called the Cutters. And over the years, that team has gone on to win 14 titles — more than any other team in the history of the race.

BOOKS What? “A Season on the Brink” Who/when? The Washington Post’s John Feinstein documented Bob Knight and the 1985-86 men’s basketball team for this insightful book. Why read? You might have noticed: Culture-wise, basketball is to IU what football is to Notre Dame — very important. Feinstein spent six months following the team and his account will help you understand the hoops mania on campus. Extra credit: This book has sold more than two million copies and was made into an ESPN TV movie in 2002. What? “Being Lucky: Reminiscences and Reflections” Who/when? Published in 1980, this is the autobiography of IU’s legendary former president Herman B Wells.

Your students have years of classes ahead of them. Here’s a little IU homework parents can do in their own living rooms. Why read? Wells is a beloved figure at IU. His book is a mix of advice, humor and history that will tell you a lot about the man who, more than anyone else, shaped and set the tone for the University. Extra credit: It’s a tradition for students and parents to shake hands with the statue of him for good luck when they come to campus. Extra, extra credit: Want more Wells? You are lucky. In 2012, IU’s James Capshew wrote a biography, “Herman B Wells: The Promise of the American University.” MUSIC What? “Stardust Melody: Hoagy Carmichael and Friends” Who/when? There is no shortage of CDs featuring the famous composer’s work. This 2009 mix showcases some of his signature songs done by such luminaries as Benny Goodman and Ethel Waters.

Why listen? Carmichael, the Bloomington native and IU law student, wrote some of the great standards of the 20th century including, “Heart and Soul” and “Stardust.” Extra credit: You can visit a sculpture of Carmichael outside of the IU Cinema. What? “Basically Baker” Who/when? This jazz CD was released in 2007, the same year David Baker received the “Living Jazz Legend Award” for lifetime achievement from the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Why listen? Baker was a prolific and world-renowned composer and arranger with more than 65 recordings to his credit. He was distinguished professor of music and chairman of the jazz department at the Jacobs School of Music, as well as jazz maestro emeritus of the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra. Extra credit: In 2006, Baker debuted his, “Concertino for Cellular Phones and Symphony Orchestra” where audience members participated in the piece with their ringtones.

How you can help your student get through Send a care package to your student with what they need to destress By RJ Crawford

College can be a very tedious process and can steal the attention of many students. Classes, work, hobbies and other extracurricular activities can cause students to overload themselves and put a lot on their plate. This overwhelming experience can become a source of stress for students. A solution to this problem lies within the hands of parents and guardians — care packages. A care package can benefit your student. Care packages can encompass necessities, snacks, money or anything else you’d like to get to your student. With the click of a button you can easily send a care package

to your students. Sites such as gopuff, OCM through IU, Happy Box, or even Baked of Bloomington can assist you in sending food or other products to your students. With these sites, you are given the opportunity to lighten the load on your student. Being a college student myself, I love receiving a care package. It allows me to focus on the support and love my family is sending to me while I am preparing for exams. recognizes some college students may be miles away from home, and they feel the second best thing to a visit from family is a care package delivered to their door or dorm. “Care packages are a great way to send your love and let your col-

Some of the things they recommend include a stress ball, coffee, a water bottle, gift cards, healthy snacks, school supplies, candy, chewing gum and essential oil candles. It is important to recognize your student and the things they are accomplishing. Their endeavors take lots of focus and can sometimes pull their attention away from their lives outside of school. A care package can provide love, empathy, compassion, care, and essentials to your student while they are away at school no matter where they are.

Looking for a major that can lead to a fulfilling career helping others? Explore Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences.

FILE PHOTO BY STEPH AARONSON | IDS 2012 Anna Mackinnon hugs her mother after the undergraduate commencement ceremony at Assembly Hall in 2012.

IU’s graduate programs in Speech, Language & Hearing Sciences are ranked #10 and #14 in the US — most of these same outstanding graduate faculty teach our undergraduates. Our major is interdisciplinary with considerable coursework in psychology, development, anatomy & physiology, linguistics, and acoustics. FILE PHOTO BY ROB HILL | ARBUTUS 1994 Then-senior Todd Yeagley shares a moment with Jerry Yeagley, his father and head coach, following the Hoosiers victory over University of California, Los Angeles in the Final Four of the 1994 NCAA Soccer Championships. Todd Yeagley is now coach of the men’s soccer team.

DID YOU KNOW? The US Department of Labor (2019) reports that… FILE PHOTO BY BRUCE CARVER | ARBUTUS 2010 Graduate Latroy Hampton hugs his mother, Eunice Foley, following spring commencement May 8, 2010, at Assembly Hall.

• The median annual salary for speech therapists is $79,120 and job growth is projected at 27% from 2019-2029 (“faster than average”). • The median annual salary for audiologists is $77,600 and job growth is projected at 16% from 2019-2029 (“much faster than average”). • Clearly, an SLHS major offers the opportunity to “do well” for the foreseeable future. Speech-language pathologists and audiologists diagnose and treat communication disorders in people ranging from newborns to older adults — our majors have the chance to enjoy a life-long fulfilling career in which they also “do good” by helping their fellow human beings.
