Welcome to IU from your Dean of Students Dear New Student, As you begin at IU, you will be challenged as never before. College is not a spectator sport. The more effort you put into it, the richer and more meaningful your education will be. There are many people here to help you. There are many opportunities to get involved. Choose to become involved with those people who can add to your education, and become involved in those things that will take you toward your goals. Do not be afraid to ask questions or to ask for help. Most of all, enjoy the IU experience. — Pete Goldsmith

Campus traditions bring IU experience to students Learn the words to these IU classics IU FIGHT SONG


“Indiana, Our Indiana”

“Hail to Old IU”

Indiana, our Indiana Indiana, we’re all for you We will fight for the cream and crimson For the glory of old IU. Never daunted, we cannot falter In the battle, we’re tried and true. Indiana, our Indiana, Indiana, we’re all for you!

Come and join in song together, Shout with might and main. Our beloved Alma Mater, Sound her praise again. Gloriana Frangipana, E’er to her be true. She’s the pride of Indiana, Hail to Old IU!

Students celebrate Homecoming Week by running the Nearly Naked Mile. BY LAUREN REARICK

Welcome to IU! Traditions are an important part of any school’s pride and legacy. These traditions help bring together people of all races, cultures and personalities. They also open doors for shy people to emerge from their shells and stand confidently alongside their fellow Hoosiers. Here are a few traditions we celebrate. Whether it’s a football game or a concert by Straight No Chaser — a men’s a cappella group started at IU, Hoosiers celebrate school pride. Football games are also a perfectly good excuse to paint your face and fist bump a stranger. Homecoming is not just a time for football. It also brings a celebratory parade, the Nearly Naked Mile and other classic tradi-

tions. Homecoming is also a legacy because IU was one of the first universities in the nation to adopt the celebration. One of the great traditions celebrated at IU sporting events is the singing of the fight song. First performed in 1912, “Indiana, Our Indiana,” is the fight song played at every IU football and basketball game. Basketball games are another opportunity for sport enthusiasts to really get excited about IU. Look out for Hoosier Hysteria late in the fall to kick off the season. Athletics are not the only tradition. Make sure to get down and dance at IU’s Dance Marathon, an event that helps raise money for Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Participants dance for 36 hours while they throw caution and sleep to the wind in order to support the cause. Of course, exhaustion is expected, but the feeling of participating in a memorable

Forget a Formula? Homework Hassles? Problem with a Paper?

event makes it all worthwhile. “IUDM was the most inspiring and best part of my freshman year,” said sophomore Tess Ropp, a recruitment committee member. “Over everything I did last year, those 18 hours were the best. I loved it.” Another must is the Little 500 race, which takes place annually. Little 500 weekend has been called “the World’s Greatest College Weekend.” It mixes competition and school spirit with celebration and excitement as some of our school’s best athletes compete in a women and men’s bike race throughout the weekend. IU traditions are a big part of school pride. The proof is in the audience of any sporting event, concert, festival, performance or musical you attend. If you take a look around, make sure to note there are plenty of proud alumni clapping and chanting along with you.

Researcher Alfred Kinsey, then-president Herman B Wells and George Corner, from the Carnegie Institute, meet in August 1951.

Herman B Wells' legacy BY MICHAEL AUSLEN

Before Herman B Wells took charge of IU, the University was just a small Midwestern college with 11,000 students. By the time he died in 2000, it had become a world-renowned institution with more than 90,000 students on eight campuses. “He put Indiana University on the map,� said James Capshew, associate professor of history and author of a Wells biography. Wells served as the 11th president of IU from 1938 to 1962 and as chancellor from 1962 until he passed away in 2000. He came here as a student in 1921 and fell in love with the campus, Capshew said. “When he became president, he was determined to offer students a similar experience to what he had,� Capshew said. Wells is known for implementing some of the most substantial changes to the University that helped make it what it is today. “He created, I think, a very extraordinary culture in Bloomington,� said Chancellor Ken Gros Louis, a man who knew Wells. “The most recently hired custodian was as important to him as the most distinguished professor.� There are many stories about Wells’ successful desegregation efforts in Bloomington and on campus. “He didn’t rustle feathers,� Capshew said. “He found a way to remove barriers.� During the early part of his presidency, a restaurant originally located on Indiana Avenue, the Gables, did not serve black students. Wells called the owner of the restaurant and asked him to serve blacks. The owner refused. “Wells said, ‘I understand, but I hope you will understand if I make the Gables off-limits to all students,’� Gros Louis said. “The owner started serving black students.� He stood up against powerful figures in de-

fense of Alfred Kinsey, whose research on human sexuality drew criticism. As president and chancellor, Wells kept in mind the future growth of the University and realized that because the institution would far outlive him, he ought to provide for its future. The Board of Trustees criticized Wells when he bought the land upon which Assembly Hall now rests, Gros Louis said. “That’s the kind of vision he had,� Gros Louis said. The first building Wells constructed as president was the IU Auditorium. “He said he built it because he wanted to tell students, especially students from rural Indiana, that the world was available to them,� Gros Louis said. That same spirit of global education was what led Wells to find instructors who could come from other countries and teach at IU. “Indiana University built the strongest foreign language program of any university in the nation,� Capshew said. “That really got started with Wells after World War II.� Wells genuinely cared about the University’s students, Capshew said. Wells developed a reputation for remembering people’s names, even if they had only met once, and he frequently took strolls around campus to meet students. In his old age, his assistants helped him. “He really led through that empathy, that fellow feeling that he had for students and faculty,� Capshew said. Today, the main library is named in Wells' honor, and a bronze statue of him sits on a bench in the Old Crescent looking across Dunn’s Woods. “He’s the one that made what I think is a very special culture,� Gros Louis said. “The time will come when nobody living will remember him, but he’ll still be remembered because of what he did for this University.�

Notable landmarks and legends on campus BY NICOLE MONTELLA

Bryan House WHERE Next to Ballantine Hall, behind Delta Gamma. THE LEGEND Bryan House is typically the home of IU’s president. President Michael McRobbie and his wife, Laurie Burns McRobbie, use the house as an office. A house cat, Hermie, is known to protect the grounds. The Bryan House is also the location of a reception for incoming freshmen and outgoing seniors to talk to the administration about their life at IU. The landscape around the house reflects the theme of the president at the time. President McRobbie’s theme is sustainability.

Dunn Family cemeteries

The Rose Well House

WHERE Adjacent to Beck Chapel and in front of Foster Quad. THE LEGEND When IU bought the land from the Dunn family, there were a few stipulations. The first was that their family plots could not be moved, which is why there are two cemeteries on campus. There are no burials anymore, and most of the plots are marked with recognizable IU names. The second stipulation was that for every tree IU cut down to construct a building, one had to be planted in its place. Herman B Wells later said for every tree cut down, two trees must be replanted. Additionally, the “Sweetheart Tree,” which currently stands inside the Chemistry Building, was not to be touched.

WHERE In the Old Crescent near Wylie and Owen halls and Dunn Woods. THE LEGEND Built in 1908, the Rose Well House was originally part of the old College Building. Legend states that an IU woman is not an official co-ed until she is kissed in the well house at the 12 strokes of midnight. Another myth is that a couple will be together forever if they kiss at the 12 strokes of midnight on Valentine’s Day.

Herman B Wells statue

Beck Chapel WHERE Across from Ballantine Hall and the Chemistry Building. THE LEGEND Beck Chapel is IU’s nondenominational chapel on campus, and it was completed in 1956. It houses copies of the Bible and Torah and is open 24/7 during finals week. Many IU sweethearts marry inside, but the chapel has been known to be booked for longer than a year.

WHERE Sitting on a bench on the west side of campus, near the Sample Gates. THE LEGEND Herman B Wells was one of the greatest presidents in IU’s history, and the main library is named after him. At freshmen orientation, parents are told if they shake Wells’ outstretched hand, their student will graduate in four years. “Under Wells, ‘Go Gophers’ is carved because the architecture is from Minnesota,” former IU student Kyle Roach said. “IU has so many quirky things all over campus. You just need to go looking.”

Orienter 2014

Showalter Fountain WHERE In the Fine Arts Plaza, in front of the IU Auditorium, between the Lilly Library and School of Fine Arts. THE LEGEND The fountain depicts the birth of Venus. On the night of IU’s NCAA championship in 1987, students came to celebrate at Showalter Fountain and stole all the fish that surround her. The fish slowly started turning up in random places on campus. One fish remained missing (with some saying IU wouldn’t win another championship until it was returned), but it was recast in spring 2011, and all the fish are finally back together. IDS FILE PHOTO

The bucket list BY AMANDA JACOBSON

You’ve heard about nightlife at IU, but what happens during the day? Here are some suggestions on how to spend your time.

Freshman and sophomore years

Horror Picture Show” is performed at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. This tradition offers costume contests, interactive performances and an all-around fun time. One suggestion: Don’t mention it’s your first time, unless you want to be brought on stage for a special “initiation” ceremony.

Go to a Hoosiers game

Dip your toes in Showalter Fountain The Showalter Fountain is a monument to IU’s arts history, but it is also a major symbol of campus culture. First designed by the late IU faculty member Robert Laurent in 1954, the fountain was inspired by bronze fountain groups in America and other fountains Laurent saw while on sabbatical in Rome. The sculpted fish surrounding Venus are stolen almost annually. However, a dip in the fountain will suffice as a form of rebellion.

Visit the tailgate fields The tailgate fields are often synonymous with drinking and loud music, but they're the place to be during football season. Wake up early, wear an old pair of shoes because they'll get muddy, and watch out for excise police.

See “Rocky Horror Picture Show” at the Buskirk-Chumley Each year around Halloween, the “Rocky

You’ll always remember your first IU basketball game. The roar of the crowd in Assembly Hall, the fast pace of the game and the IU fight song will inspire you to become a lifelong fan. Buy an IU T-shirt, pick a favorite player and let your Hoosier pride shine.

Use the bathroom at Soma Located on the corner of Grant Street and Kirkwood Avenue, Soma Coffee House and Juice Bar sports some colorful and amusing bathroom décor, which changes every so often. The toilet sits upon a stage-like platform, a pair of upside down mannequin legs holds toilet paper rolls, and a mosaic decorates one wall.

Go to the Quarries As a tribute to Bloomington’s limestone history and “Breaking Away” nostalgia, many people choose to visit the old quarries, now filled with water, sunken construction equipment and utility vehicles.

Although jumping from the rooftop ledge — whose location can be disclosed solely by word of mouth — is popular, it is also very dangerous. A history of injuries, diving deaths and arrests is tied to this secret location, but the quarry is also a popular hangout and party spot during the summer.

most famous, with its electric blue color and combination of who-knows-how-many different liquors. Another B-Town favorite is the Hairy Bear at Bear’s Place. This potent, orange-hued drink is said to be an acquired taste, but you should try it at least once to see if it’s for you. Finally, there’s the Bluebird Nightclub’s Dirty Bird. This mammoth drink is a favorite of locals and showgoers at the local bar and music venue.

Eat breakfast at the Runcible Spoon The Runcible Spoon is famed for its commitment to locally brewed and sourced coffees, fresh food and eclectic atmosphere, but the breakfast menu is its specialty. The range of options includes eggs, sausage, corned beef hash, mimosas and chai lattes. Go here to cure a hangover, study dy with friends or enjoy the patio on a spring day.

Junior and senior years Play “Sink the Biz” at Nick’s Nick’s English Hut is notorious for its food, sports bar atmosphere e and the infamous game, “Sink the Biz.” The main objective is to keep a small beer glass — the “Biz” — afloat in a bucket full of beer, while each h person takes turns pouring a smallll amount of beer into it. The first one in your group to sink ink the “Biz” into the water has to drink hiss or her entire beer. Be sure to order a side of seasoned Biz fries to enjoy as you play.

Sounds of Bloomington MAX’S PLACE


In a college town with one of the top music schools in the nation, there is bound to be local music talent. Throw in a variety of bars and live music venues, and almost every day of the week offers a new musical opportunity. Is Bloomington a bluegrass town? Is it an indie rock town? Maybe a hip-hop town? It turns out it’s more of an everything town. But from what we gathered from just a few of the places, each venue manages to offer its own assortment of “everything.”

109 W. Seventh St. Type of music: “Basically anything that’s off the beaten path,” owner Travers Marks said. “We don’t really go for big cover bands. We like classic rock, but we don’t usually book it. We don’t like top 40, but bluegrass, reggae, blues, jazz, any weird combination thereof, singer-songwriters, that’s Max’s Place.” The Max’s Place scene: Marks said two simple words sum up the restaurant’s niche within the Bloomington music scene: hirsute, meaning shaggy, and liberal. Before you go: Don’t eat before seeing a

300 E. Third St. Type of music: Owner Rachael Jones said the restaurant has had every genre of music except country. Jones said people looking to soak up music at Rachael’s can expect to hear punk, folk, Irish and hip-hop, as well as plenty of local independent acts. The Rachael’s Café scene: “We are so many different things,” Jones said. “We are a coffee shop in the daytime and a music venue at night. We also are not limited to people 21 and over. Any age can come. In fact, we had a women’s music night, and there was a girl playing that was younger than 10.” Before you go: While Rachael’s Cafe can fill the place to capacity at night with its live music and DJ events, don’t forget that it’s also a great place to study or relax during the day. The place is adorned with bizarre sculptures, stimulating artwork and loaded bookshelves for customers to enjoy.

THE BISHOP BAR 123 S. Walnut St. Type of music: “We’re not too genre-specific,” owner Stephen Westrich said. “(We’ve had) everything from rock bands, indie rock bands, alt-country, hip-hop. But if we lean towards one thing, it’s an indie rock environment.” The Bishop scene: “In terms of places that regularly do live music, we only do original music,” Westrich said. “We definitely embrace

local bands like nobody else does, and we really solely concentrate on original music. We’ve turned down things we know would bring us 200 people, but we don’t do them. There’s an audience for those kinds of things, but we brand ourselves as something different.” Before you go: If you're older than 21, you can go directly to the bar after checking in at the door, but anyone younger will be directed to the stage area.

RHINO’S YOUTH CENTER 331 S. Walnut St. Type of music: “We’re very open-ended,” assistant director David Britton said. “We do everything from national and international touring bands to local high school bands. We do metal, hip-hop, rock, folk music and really a lot of everything, but we do try to concentrate on local music.” The Rhino’s Scene: Britton said what sets Rhino’s apart from other live-music venues in Bloomington is that it’s an entirely all-ages club. He said he also likes to take the risk of booking younger bands that can’t get booked at other places because of age restrictions. “We’re also a bigger venue compared to some of the other places,” Britton said. “So we can bring in bigger name artists.” Before you go: Students from the local Harmony Education Center started Rhino’s in 1992. Since then, the venue has offered a variety of non-music programs for youth. In the past, Rhino’s has helped organize film screenings, dance parties and various fundraising events.

Panhellenic Association Minimum 2.7 GPA Follow: @IUBPHA More information: PHA is composed of 22 sororities that focus on leadership, scholarship, philanthropy and sisterhood. Freshman or sophomore women may seek membership by attending a greek informational meeting. After registering for the PHA recruitment process, each woman will be assigned a recruitment counselor known as a Rho Gamma. IU PHA recruitment does not begin until second semester. This allows women to adjust to college life and develop good study habits before joining sorority life. Rush officially begins Jan. 8 with Open House, or “22 party,” where recruits will visit all 22 PHA chapters. After 22 party, potential members meet with their Rho Gammas and rank their favorite chapters. After 22 party, women will go through three more stages as they get to know the personalities and values of each chapter. Recruitment finishes with Bid Day, when women are invited into a sorority. Upon accepting the bid, they begin initiation. Former PHA president Anjulia Urasky said there are many benefits to going greek. “You get lifelong friendships, leadership opportunities and a supportive community,” Urasky said via email. “Members of a sorority or fraternity join for life. It’s not just four years.”

Interfraternity Council Minimum 2.7 GPA Follow: @IUBIFC IFC is composed of 30 chapters and three colonies, or new greek organizations awaiting official approval by their national fraternity. IFC fraternities are based on brotherhood, leadership, scholarship and service. “Our mantra is if you want to join greek life, we can a find a frat for you,” former Vice President of Recruitment Tom Ault said. After meeting with the Bro Gammas, Ault said it’s their hope that men will come to Dunn Meadow with a short list of fraternities to meet so they can maximize their time at the event. Once potential members sign up with a number of fraternities they’re interested in, they can attend open events, where they’ll go on house tours and meet brothers in a sober setting. Fraternity chapters then extend bids, and once a potential member signs a bid to a specific house, he’ll begin member education, or the pledge process. Men may also choose to rush in the spring. Former IFC president Sean Jordan said he got a lot out of his decision to join a fraternity. “For me, it’s a lot of leadership development, making a big school feel small, finding your niche with a great group of guys and providing a solid foundation to grow as a human being throughout your college career,” Jordan said.

Orienter 2014 Multi-Cultural Greek Council Nine chapters, one colony Requirements: Minimum 2.5 GPA, letters of recommendation, letter of interest, community service hours Follow: @IU_MCGC More information: contact senior assistant director Lindsay Echols, MCGC is composed of nine sorority and fraternity chapters and one colony. The chapters identify with a specific race, sexual orientation or religious preference, but students may join any chapter regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion or sexual orientation. All MCGC chapters commit themselves to academic excellence, leadership development and community service. To join a MCGC chapter, interested students can attend an informational session at the beginning of the semester. They will then fill out an application to seek membership to a specific sorority or fraternity. Each chapter runs its recruitment process differently. MCGC senior assistant director Lindsay Echols said there is a distinct benefit to joining a MCGC sorority or fraternity. “MCGC chapters are able to delve in and celebrate other cultures in a predominantly white campus, so members are able to learn about themselves and others,” Echols said. “It’s a wonderful learning opportunity.”

13 National Pan-Hellenic Council Requirements: Must have completed at least 12 credit hours with a minimum 2.5 GPA, letters of recommendation, letter of interest, community service hours Follow: @NPHC_IU For more information: contact senior assistant director Lindsay Echols, NPHC is composed of nine historically black national sororities and fraternities. However, like MCGC, members do not have to be of a certain race or ethnicity to join. The chapters are founded in philanthropy and service, and they work in the community at local nonprofit organizations like Middle Way House and the Boys and Girls Club. The time frame for rush varies by specific chapter, but those seeking to rush will receive an application and submit for membership after the first informational meeting. The process will repeat in the spring. In addition to the friendships and networking opportunities, Echols also said joining a chapter means making a lasting pledge to the sorority or fraternity. “The thing that sets NPHC apart from other councils is the life-long commitment,” Echols said. “My grandmother is 91 years old and still a financial member of her sorority.”

Each fall, Bloomington becomes a showcase for cultural entertainment. The Lotus World Music and Arts Festival, which will take place Sept. 18-21 this year, is an annual celebration of the cultures that make up Bloomington. It features a packed weekend of performances throughout the downtown area. Stilt walkers, belly dancers, marching bands and bright colors are all standard. Rather than attempt to describe the cross-cultural phenomenon, this selection of IDS photos from past years of the festival should give you a taste of what to expect.

It’s not just a bike race. It’s the Little 500. Each spring, hundreds of students turn into athletes in the largest collegiate cycling race in the country, and the biggest intramural event at IU, when they ride in the Little 500. Modeled after the motor race that takes place 56 miles away at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, the Little 500 sends four-person teams around a quarter-mile track in separate races for men and women. Howdy Wilcox, former executive director of the IU Student Foundation, founded the Little 500 race in 1951, 32 years after his father won the Indianapolis 500. The race was featured in the 1979 movie “Breaking Away,” which tells the tale of an underdog team of locals who win the race. In the film, the team acquires the nickname “Cutters” after the phrase was used as an insult to stone cutters who worked at Bloomington limestone quarries. Similar to the traditions of kissing the sidewalk and drinking cold milk that accompany the Indy 500, the Little 500 is full of traditions, such as mounting Schwinns and crashing on Turn 3. But it’s also an experience — one former

Cutters rider Eric Young will never forget. Young, a four-year rider for the historic team, crossed the finish line first during each of his four years riding in the Little 500 — a feat no other rider had achieved. The Cutters rider had always planned to go to graduate school for neuroscience following his time in Bloomington. He had never heard of the Little 500 before, but four championships and one contract later, Young became a professional cyclist for Bissell cycling. “I did not think I would be earning money to race until my senior year,” Young said. “I learned a lot from Little Five, a lot about teamwork and perseverance. It definitely defined my college experience.” Coordinated by the IU Student Foundation, the Little 500 helps raise money for working student scholarships, and has raised more than $1.5 million in scholarships since its inception. Though it is an intramural event, former student and Wing It Cycling rider Abigail Legg said most teams don’t treat it like one. “We train about six days a week,” Legg said. “We change our diets around Little Five. We change our class schedules around Little Five. “You’re part of something so much bigger than yourself, and much bigger than just a bike race in April.”

IU sports to watch BY EVAN HOOPFER

So you know about Assembly Hall and the five championship banners. By now, you get it — the men’s basketball team is sort of a big deal here. But IU has 24 NCAA Division I teams. And, with the exception of football and men’s basketball, all home games are free with your student ID. Wth all those teams, how should you spend your time? Here’s a look at some of the other teams you should check out this year. WATER POLO This past season, IU’s water polo team won the Collegiate Water Polo Association’s Western Division Championship for the second time in school history. The team advanced to the NCAA tournament, where it finished seventh. The Hoosiers were the highest finishing team east of the Mississippi River.


IU senior Brian Korte pitches against Minnesota May 16 at Bart Kaufman Field. The Hoosiers beat the Gophers, 8-0, which clinched a series win.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL They are coming off their best start in school history. The IU women’s team started the 2013-14 season 14-0 and went to the Elite 8 in the WNIT. With star recruit Tyra Buss coming in and guard Larryn Brooks coming back for her sophomore season, this team is sure to rival the men’s in terms of wins this season.



BASEBALL Never before has IU baseball played this well. During the 2013 season, they became ranked for the first time in the school’s 118year history and made it to their first College World Series appearance ever. During the 2014 season, the Hoosiers opened the year as the No. 3 team in the country and clinched back-to-back Big Ten titles to play in the tournament for a chance at another World Series berth.

Senior Hanna Eimstad fights for possession of an incoming pass during practice. As a defender, Eimstad primarily tries to prevent passes into the low post.

FOOTBALL One fumble on the 9-yard line by running back Tevin Coleman separated IU’s football team from going to its first bowl since 2007. The team features one of the best offenses in the country under Coach Kevin Wilson, and it brings back both of their quarterbacks, Nate Sudfeld and Tre Roberson, for the 2014 season as the Hoosiers try again to become bowl eligible.

Hey Buddy, you have a permit for that thing?

Senior Andrea Newbauer drives to the basket during a game against USC Upstate at Assembly Hall.

MEN’S SOCCER The men’s soccer program is possibly the most prestigious program not only at IU, but in the nation. Coaching legend Jerry Yeagley made IU a dynasty by winning six national championships during his 40-year tenure. His son, Todd Yeagley, has continued the tradition as coach. He won a national championship in 2012, and, after a down year in 2013, when the Hoosiers got bounced from the NCAA tournament early, they will be back. Also, the crowds at Bill Armstrong Stadium are rumored to be one of the most rowdy and loudest crowds in the nation.

For students living off campus, permits are available at Parking Operations, Henderson Garage, or you may purchase your permit online at

Staying safe on campus is important, whether it is walking to class or going to a party with friends. Remembering the acronym AWARE can be helpful. ARRANGE FOR RIDES Assign a designated driver before heading out. If a car is not an option, services such as IU Safety Escort and the Night Owl bus route are. Check out or midnight_special.html for more details. Another option would be to take a taxi. Keep in mind most drivers do not use meters, so cab fare could be pricey. WEIGH THE RISKS We won’t talk you out of drinking on a Friday night. No one else will either. College is about making decision for yourself. We just want you to be safe, so here are a few things you

should know. You probably think it would never happen to you, but drinking can be dangerous. People who are new to drinking typically have low tolerances for alcohol, so do not exceed it. People who have drunk enough to pass out are at risk of choking to death on their own vomit or suffering from alcohol poisoning. The end result could be the emergency room or, sometimes, death. Another issue that can come with college parties is sexual assaults. As many as one in four college women experience unwanted sexual intercourse in the United States, and many of these incidents happen at or after parties. The majority of sexual assaults involve alcohol. ASSISTANCE ON CAMPUS Throughout campus are emergency stations to assist students in need. Hit the red button on any of these stations, which will contact the IU Police Department, and a blue light will flash on the surrounding area.

Do not leave your drink unattended. Never leave a friend alone when he or she has had too much to drink. Know where you are and how to get home. Carry cash in case a cab is needed, and do not rely on someone you do not know to give you a ride home. If ever attacked by an aggressor, IUPD’s Leslie Slone, suggests staying mobile.

Worst-case scenario survival guide: IU edition BY DIANNE OSLAND

Welcome to the wild, er, college. Whether you’re navigating the halls of Ballantine Hall or the tables of Wright Food Court, you’re bound to come acrosss dangerous, disappointing and downright awkward situations. Here’s how to o survive — and prevent — three comommon scenarios you may facee in your first year. HOUSING You had your heart set on McNutt because your sister told you it was the only place to live if you u wanted a social life. Your housing assignment ignment arrives: Forest.

Preventative measures This could very well be the one and only time you’ll live in the close quarters of a double dorm room on a floor of 50 other people who might become your family away from home. Enjoy it. SCHEDULING You’ve painstakingly picked out the perfect class schedule for your first semester. Hello, three-day weekends and History of Rock ’n’ Roll Music. But as you log onto OneStart to click “enroll,” you’re faced with MWF 8 a.m. classes and 20-person deep waitlists. What to do That rock ’n’ roll class has already enrolled the maximum number of students. But don’t stash away those AC/DC albums yet — check the “waitlist” option. If students decide to drop out during the first week of classes and you’re

IU Sp Pr A ons ou th o d le r tic of s!

What to do Don’t immediately think your freshman year is ruined. There’s not one specifically “social dorm,” there are just social people. And they’re not housed in only one building — they’re your neighbors down the hall. Find the good in each neighborhood. Forest, Read and Rose are all on Third Street

near major academic buildings so you’ll have a shorter walk to class. Central dorms are by the Wells Library and the SRSC, and Northwest residents have quick access to the stadium and Assembly Hall. If you’re lucky enough to land in one of without the three dorms d don’t air conditioning, condi sweat it. it Just rememcan always ber, you y bring fans, and brin summer doesn’t sum last long in Indiana. Take addian vantage of AC in vanta your dorm’s center building or make fast buildin no small friends — there’s th talk like complaining about the weather. Give it a few months. If you’re still unhappy with your housing, you have the opportunity at the end of first semester to submit a housing change request form. If you must call Fee Lane home, RPS does allow residents to move rooms before winter break if there is available space.

high enough up on the waitlist, you’ll automatically be enrolled. Just remember you’re not guaranteed a spot even if you’re waitlisted, so have a back-up class in mind. Remember you have four (or five, or six) years at IU. Just because you couldn’t enroll in a certain class this fall doesn’t mean you won’t graduate in time or have the chance to take a yoga class for credit. Set several alarms and make a friend. If you couldn’t avoid the dreaded 8 a.m. finite math course, get to know your classmates. They’ll keep you accountable for showing up and keep you updated in case you hit that snooze button one too many times. Preventative measures There’s not much you can do to change this first semester, but it’s a different story come spring. You won’t start scheduling until late October or November, but make sure you visit your adviser before that time. Many schools won’t let you enroll in spring classes until you’ve had an

advising meeting. Review your preassigned enrollment date listed in the Student Center section of OneStart. On that exact day and time, you’ll be able to enroll in classes. Remember when Fall Out Boy’s comeback tour sold out in nine minutes? Instead of competing for a ticket, you’re competing for that final seat in Psych 101. Don’t miss it.

when you’re looking right at your roommate instead of your computer screen. Stay away from talking about sex and focus on talking about the real issue: respecting shared space. Avoid calling your roommate anything derogatory. Even if you do think he or she is trashy, judging his or her actions only makes the situation worse.


Preventative measures Create a communication system with your roommate. Symbols like a tie on the door invite your neighbors to know your business. Be more cryptic with a coded note on the door that says something like “I’m studying” to keep the rest of the world out of the loop. Schedule times in advance you and your roommate can have private time in the room, though that isn’t always a solution for last-minute hookups.

Your last class just ended, and you’re heading home to study for your A215 exam. Opening the door to your dorm room, you hear heavy breathing coming from your roommate’s bed. Turns out he or she is already studying some basic human anatomy. What to do Make a swift exit. Find shelter until it is safe to return to your residence. Having a conversation while your roommate is occupied probably isn’t the best idea. Wait until the next day, when you’ve cooled off and your roommate isn’t as ... distracted. The next day, have a conversation faceto-face — not through texts or Facebook chat. It’s easier to control your emotions

ADVICE FROM THE RA Every floor in a residence hall has a student who is a sophomore or older called a resident assistant or “RA” in charge of safety and security, enforcing rules and planning events. Former McNutt RA Chris Clendenen offers you some seasoned words of advice on surviving dorm life: "Your roommate does not have to "Y ur roomm be your friend. You don’t even rey best fr ally have to talk with your roommate — you just have to live with them. "Respect their space and their things. If you don’t know if you can borrow something or do something in the room, just ask.

"What’s more important than your roommate is your floor. If you have a good floor, your roommate doesn’t matter, so spend Welcome Week with your floor, not just your high school friends. "See how long you can go before you have to buy food during Welcome Week. If you’re not buying food, that means you’re going to programs, meetings and more and getting to know people. "Don’t forget to o wear shower shoes. Your feet will fall all off."

Moving onto campus involves more than putting clothes away and setting up the mini refrigerator. Students also need to set up the Internet on their computers, learn how and where to print those upcoming assignments and figure out how to keep their laptops safe.

PROBLEMS AND SOLUTIONS Rondot suggests students run Get Connected,, before coming to campus, so that it only takes a few minutes to set up once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here. He said doing this will also set up a wireless connection.

Charles Rondot, former manager of University IT Communications, offered a variety of tips and important information for incoming freshmen. He suggested visiting the custom portal first at, and he offered more advice for students learning how to use campus Internet.




In addition to the printing quota every student gets, UITS asks all to only print 50 pages at a time, to not reuse paper in the printers and to not use special paper, labels or transparencies. For a list of computer labs on campus, visit: public/SiteRes/LabInfo.cfm.

Under the weather? IU’s health center has a fix BY ALEX RAST

The IU Health Center offers many services for IU students who need medical assistance, such as full service appointments, a walk-in clinic, a pharmacy, lab tests and x-rays, physical examinations and allergy shots. Here is a list of services that could be beneficial to you.


GET TESTED The IU Health Center Laboratory is the only local location where counseling and HIV testing are performed on-site. Results for the HIV test are available the same day. It also offers testing for common STIs such as chlamydia, which is often asymptomatic and can go undetected. The test used in the lab is quite sensitive and can detect infection early. If you want to be tested for chlamydia or other STIs, set up an appointment by calling 812-855-7688.

PHARMACY The medical clinic is staffed with physicians and nurses, and scheduled appointments or walk-ins are available. Appointment services encompass the full range of family practice medical care, including physical examinations. Appointments can be scheduled up to two weeks in advance. Students are asked to cancel appointments no later than two hours prior. The walk-in clinic is available for students with emergency medical needs. Such typical needs include fevers, sore throats, coughs and injuries. Students will be seen in order of arrival or based on the severity of the problem.

The IU Pharmacy is located within the Health Center. It accepts many prescription cards. The pharmacy also has three full-time pharmacists who are always available to answer questions. As well as giving discounts to students for some services, the pharmacy also stocks overthe-counter medications like cough drops, cold medicine and eye drops.

IMMUNIZATION/ALLERGY The Health Center offers a variety of vac-

cines, often at reasonable prices. Influenza vaccinations are made available prior to flu season. In order to encourage all students to get flu shots, the flu shots are priced as low as possible. Allergy shots are also available and are administered based on the student, following instructions given by the student’s allergist.

be discussed in confidence with one of the counselors. Depression, anxiety, feelings of inadequacy, sexual issues, substance abuse and problems of academic functioning are some of the concerns students often address through counseling. CAPS is located on the fourth floor of the Health Center.

PHYSICAL THERAPY This is the evaluation and treatment of a musculoskeletal injury with the goal of resolving pain and restoring function, so the student can return to his or her highest function in school or any other kind of physical activity. Therapeutic exercise programs are tailored to each individual’s needs and might include exercises to correct faulty posture and biomechanics to improve flexibility, strength, balance and endurance.

The IU Health Center is located at 600 N. Jordan Ave. Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday and Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. The Health Center is also open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on some select Saturdays during the fall and spring semesters. An after-hours telephone service is also available 5 to 11 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

1. Sometimes it is OK to leave home without your campus map. You might get lost, but you’ll see something new along the way. Chances are that you aren’t venturing too far from home, and, if you are, it won’t be that hard to find someone with a computer or smart phone to point you in the right direction. 2. Yes, free stuff is great. All of that orientation swag stuff you picked up the first week of class, though, can be left at home. If you’re trying to look like a freshman, there is no easier way than to wear that red cinch sack as you walk from Wright

Food Court to Wells Library.

3. Also in that bag of goodies was a lanyard. Don’t use it. Don’t use any lanyard. While displaying your car keys on your chest may have been a status symbol in high school, the same is not the case for your dorm room key in college. 4. Trying to become Facebook famous is not a way to seem older to your peers. Letting someone in a lecture borrow your pen is not an invitation for you to take out your phone and send them a friend request. Take it easy. College is an opportune time to meet plenty of new people, not just their profile pictures.

5. It’s true that you are here primarily for school, but Bloomington has so much more to offer. Going home every weekend is a surefire way to isolate yourself. This is a new experience for many people around you as well. Bond over that and you will find yourself making lifelong friends.

but not the best way to look like a grown up. Stash it away for a few years and bring it back out sometime after college. Your letter jacket and all of those T-shirts from high school with “Class of 2014” can be boxed up as well.


8. Since you have decided not to


go home every weekend, you’ll need to be able to do your own laundry. Next time your mom calls to nag, ask her for some pointers. She will be shocked, but you’ll be much happier than if you had washed all your white tees with one red one in the mix. Nobody wants to be the guy in the unintentionally pink shirt.

9. Wearing candy striped pants at the beginning of your freshman year is the equivalent of talking about having children on a first date. Tone it down a little bit. Save the pants for game day. A little school spirit doesn’t hurt, but don’t go over the top.

In 1941, Alfred Kinsey used gall wasps in his sex research. His work inspired much of the content in IU's Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction.

Kinsey Institute brings radical sex research to IU BY LAUREN MCCONNELL

How men make decisions about sexual partners, how mood affects sexual arousal in women and what prevents couples from using condoms are only some of the topics on sex being researched at IU’s groundbreaking Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction. The Institute has been a source of research and information about these topics since 1947. The Institute is named for IU’s Alfred Kinsey. Kinsey famously gathered histories of sexual behavior in thousands of interviews, which culminated in his book “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male,” published in 1948. This was followed by his “Sexual Behavior in the Human Female” in 1953. The volume surprised everyone when it became a best-seller, according to the Kinsey website. The Kinsey Institute offers a library, art collections, events, an active research program and the Kinsey Confidential website.

For example, the Kinsey Institute has 250 original prints by Wilhelm von Gloeden, who is known as the first photographer of the male nude. The gallery showcases select pieces from the Institute’s collection of art, artifacts and photography. The Kinsey Institute reception area is open 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The library and special collections are open 9 a.m. to noon and 1 to 5 p.m., but they are not open to the general public. Reservations must be made for public tours by calling 812-855-7686 or emailing Have questions about birth control, sexual dysfunction, condoms, orgasms or sexual assault? Kinsey Confidential is a blog and podcast website from the Kinsey Institute that provides information on sexual issues for college students. Questions can be submitted anonymously at

“Take advantage of all the world class cultural resources IU has to offer. IU’s arts scene rivals that of a big city. Your life as a student will be so enhanced and your education as a citizen of the world will be greatly enlarged. Good luck!”

Words of wisdom

“Reach out and become involved. There are a number of leadership opportunities, and that is a great way for domestic and international students to be actively involved. Look for opportunities that foster personal and professional growth in a positive way, and utilize the resources available at IU to assist you in being a successful college student.”

Leaders from across campus offer advice on how to prepare for the first year at IU. From the practical to the philosophical, they’ve got you covered.

Adelheid Gealt, director of the IU Art Museum

Sandy Britton, associate director for international student life, Office of International Services

“Back in 1991, when I was a freelance journalist, I interviewed a local philanthropist who was known for always finding the joy in life. I asked him what the secret was to his happiness. I keep his words on a frame on my desk. Here’s what he said: ‘If you want to feel good for an hour, take a nap. If you want to feel good for a day, go shopping. If you want to feel good for a month, take a vacation. If you want to feel good for a lifetime, help someone.’”

“I would encourage students to be open to discover what their own sexuality might mean to them in healthy ways, but also to value and respect the differences they encounter. It makes for a full and enriched college experience. My sense is that students today are much more open to value the differences they are exposed to. Don’t assume everyone is the same, don’t be afraid to ask questions in a respectful way. I think when people do that, they’re really delighted to give positive responses.” Doug Bauder, coordinator of GLBT Student Support Services

“College provides a wonderful opportunity to sample different creative and professional endeavors. This is the time to find what you are most passionate about. Learn to take care of yourself. For many of you, this will be the first time you are allowed to make every decision regarding your lifestyle. Find out what works for you, and try to live a healthy, productive life. Finally, value your reputation. The decisions you make can stay with you, so be conscious of the way you treat people.”

“One, always remember why you are here — to learn and grow. That should be a priority and guide what you do the next four years. Two, surround yourself with people that will support and have a positive influence in your life. Three, never be afraid or embarrassed to ask for help. You are not the only one who will seek help, and that is why faculty and staff are here. Four, never be afraid or embarrassed to go beyond your comfort zone. College is the best place to challenge yourself and explore the unknown.”

Andy Braden, IUSA president

Pat Donahue, director, Career Development Center

The textbook dilemma: rent or buy? IDS FILE PHOTO


Buying at a bookstore tends to be the most expensive option. Although there are a variety of alternatives, some students still prefer the traditional way. However, with the help of the Internet, students now have the option to rent or buy books online, and they can even purchase them in the form of e-books.

Should I rent? Renting textbooks is a fairly recent trend among university students as a cheap alternative to purchasing books. Both the IU Bookstore and TIS offer this option, in addition to local retailer TXT Book Rental and websites like PROS Renting a textbook is cheaper than purchasing one, and you don’t have to keep a book that you don’t want. According to TIS,

renting textbooks usually saves you 60 percent off the list price of the book. CONS Rental books have to be kept in good condition, so you can’t write in them as much.

Should I buy online? Buying online can also save money, especially with popular websites like They advertise big discounts on new and used textbooks, and they even offer free shipping for students. PROS You can do it from the comfort of your own living room, and it might save you some money. CONS If you order your books online, you have to wait for them to arrive.

Should I get e-books? Once you’ve decided whether you want to buy online or rent, you can also choose whether you’d like traditional books or e-books, which can be read on a portable device, such

as a Kindle or a NOOK. However, most of the e-books are formatted to be read on a computer screen. PROS Having an eTextbook on your computer saves some space and weight in your backpack. CONS Looking at a computer all the time can be a bad habit, especially for your eyes.

How can you save money? Go to class before you buy your books. You’ve heard this one before from your upperclassman friends and everyone else who has ever suffered through a lecture with an expensive, but thoroughly unopened, book. “Everyone gets mad as sophomores because the books are seen as a bad investment,” TIS textbook manager Tim Lloyd said. Don’t do that to yourself. Besides trying to buy used and rent books, here are some other tips: Split the cost. If you can, try to take those

basic, big lecture classes with a friend or roommate so you can split the cost on those bigitem books. And also to survive the boredom, of course. Use the library. We have one of the most extensive library systems in the country — use it. Especially if you need fiction or nonfiction books for literature or other liberal arts classes. Consider an older edition. A lot of students get slammed because the department recently adopted the newest edition and require all students to buy it. A lot of times, especially with history and science books, the new editions have very minimal changes, so you can get away with an older one. Be careful with this one, though, and watch out for different page numbers or changes in homework problems. *SOURCE: Inside magazine, the “Consumption” issue, spring 2014

Choosing where to study in Bloomington means knowing how you like to study. Group thinkers don’t have much fun in quiet locations, and wallflowers can be terrified by the sheer size of the Herman B Wells Library. Knowing who you are, or just how you like to absorb information, will make life easier when crunch time rolls around.

1. The dorms Your humble bedroom is the “square one” of freshman year. Everything you do — eat, sleep, get into arguments — will happen in this cubic room. It takes a perfectionist to study here without distraction. PROS If you’re the sort of left-brained, organizational wizard who can’t be distracted, no matter what, then crack open a soda and get going. You don’t have to travel far, and you’re always near snacks in your dorm room. CONS Your neighbors might not always be so courteous. It might be study time for you, but it could always be Metallica time for them.

49 2. Herman B Wells Library It is the Ellis Island of study time. Herman welcomes his students to the library lobby like the Statue of Liberty: “Bring me your tired, your huddled masses...” The Wells Library, which stretches to the skies near 10th and Jordan streets, is the standard in IU academics. It’s not uncommon to see this place filled during midterms. Group projects flock here as a central campus meeting point, yet there are hundreds of computers for individual students in need of software resources, 24 hours a day. PROS There’s a food court, air-conditioning and one of the largest library stacks in the nation ready to facilitate your learning. CONS It’s a booming, brutalist building filled with strangers. Come with caffeine and a can-do attitude.

3. Local coffeeshops Bloomington has its fair share of local coffeeshops stocked with Wi-Fi and great music. What each shop will provide you, however, can vary. Some patrons might be there solely to gawk or play music. PROS Great organic coffee, supporting local business, a caffeine buzz like you wouldn’t believe. CONS The off-chance your study night is “Bohemian Music Open Mic Cavalcade.”

Senior David McNamara sits in the Indiana Memorial Union to study for a history exam.

4. Monroe County Public Library

5. Outside

The MCPL is an often under-utilized resource of the Bloomington community. Located on the intersection of Kirkwood and Grant streets, this library is significantly quieter and easier to navigate than Wells. It’s also a short walk from the Sample Gates. PROS The clandestine “reading room” is an introvert’s paradise. CONS Located far away from dorms.

IU’s campus is a picturesque haven of meadows and trees. Take the time to disappear. Dunn Meadow is a place for socializing and discussion, but the Arboretum can easily be mistaken for a Shangri-La. Grab a towel and your textbooks, because this campus is a giant study lounge under the sun (winter excluded). PROS Working on a suntan, vitamin D, improved mood CONS Wasps, errant frisbees

Fight the FRESHMAN 15 back to 1917, with its newest addition built in 1961. The basketball courts were renovated following a roof fire in 2011.

BY KRISTEN CLARK There’s so much to worry about going into your freshman year: getting lost, making friends and avoiding the dreaded “freshman 15.” Fortunately, IU makes it easy for students to get fit and stay in shape with its two recreational facilities. Every student pays a mandatory Student Activity Fee, which grants access to workout facilities such as indoor swimming pools, weight rooms, cardio equipment and free group exercise classes at the flash of a student ID. WILDERMUTH INTRAMURAL CENTER The Wildermuth Intramural Center is located on Seventh Street across from the Indiana Memorial Union. The WIC is expansive, offering students nine racquetball/wallyball courts, 10 basketball/volleyball courts, squash courts, an indoor pool with a diving well, an indoor running track and more. The adjacent Woodlawn Tennis Courts are also a part of the WIC facility, as is Woodlawn Field. The oldest section of the building dates

STUDENT RECREATIONAL SPORTS CENTER The Student Recreational Sports Center, or SRSC, is the other workout facility on campus. With its 10-minute walk from the greek houses on North Jordan and most of the residence halls in the central neighborhood, its location makes it a popular workout destination for many students. While the SRSC offers many of the same features as the HPER, including seven racquetball/wallyball courts, five basketball/volleyball courts, an indoor track, an Olympic-sized pool and more, many students prefer the SRSC because it is a newer facility. HOW TO FIT FITNESS INTO YOUR SCHEDULE Perhaps the biggest obstacle is focusing on fitness while surrounded by so many distractions. It’s much easier after a long day of classes to lounge in your room eating junk food than it is to find the motivation to hit the gym. Madhura Sundararajan, a music and pre-

med student, managed to find time to exercise while juggling homework, music practice and her social life. “You just have to make time for it,” she said. “It can be really difficult with the workload, but you have to make time to take care of yourself.” FREE GROUP EXERCISE CLASSES One way to hold yourself accountable is to take the free group exercise classes available throughout the week at both facilities. Heather Hamilton was a group exercise leader for four years. She led classes like Step,

Cardio Core, Trekking and Circuit Strength. “All of the classes, with the exception of Step II and III, are good for beginners, and leaders will give you modification options if you are just starting out and need to take it slow,” Hamilton said. Some group exercise classes, such as yoga and pilates, are available to students at an additional cost. With classes like Cardio Kickboxing, Strength Core and Zumba — a workout disguised as a dance party — there’s something for everyone.

Moving to campus should not be done in isolation.

Students create their own majors with IMP BY CLAIRE ARONSON

Animated movies by Disney and Pixar took on a new meaning for Sydni Gregg. Gregg created her animation major through IU’s Individualized Major Program. Her focus was on 2-D animation. “As a kid, you don’t realize that it is an art form, and it’s something I still love,” she said. “I am a huge geek for Pixar and Disney and all of those traditional big-name studios, so I just figured that this is what I wanted to do.” Because animation draws from both the Department of Telecommunications and the School of Fine Arts, Gregg had two sponsors instead of one. “You find your sponsors, and, with their help, you start planning your curriculum, because you actually have to plan out four years,” she said. After presenting her major proposal to a committee, Gregg received approval. “It all built up, and then it was, ‘Thank goodness, they accepted me,’” she said. While IU doesn’t have specific animation

classes, digital art classes and telecommunications production classes are offered and teach the necessary programs, Gregg said. “There is a lot of self-exploration and selfteaching,” she said. “The stuff I learn in those classes, I can really apply directly.” Gregg wasn’t always planning on studying animation at IU. “Originally, I came to IU as a biochemistry major, and after my first semester freshman year, it was just really clear that wasn’t what I wanted to do forever,” she said. All IMP students have to make a final project as a culmination of what they have been doing during their time at IU, Gregg said. “Hopefully by that time, I will have the skill set to make a short animated film,” she said. WHAT IS IMP? IMP is the Individualized Major Program. It allows students to pull from the major classes of multiple departments to create a custom course of study and a personalized major. Students have faculty and department sponsors, as well as IMP advisers to guide them, but it ultimately allows students to con-

trol their education. HOW DO I GET INVOLVED? Many students apply during their sophomore and junior years, according to the program’s website, but students may apply as early as second semester of their freshman year. THE PROCESS The first step is to set up a meeting with the IMP assistant director. After that, students identify faculty sponsors and secure their approval, design a four-year curriculum and participate in an admission interview. Then, they continue working on their majors and B.A. requirements. The program culminates in a final project meant to show the skills they’ve gained. PAST MAJORS Zoology, animation, enigmatology (the study of puzzles), 2-D and 3-D film and television direction, peace and conflict resolution studies, intercultural arts programming and performance, Scandinavian culture and language and magic (yes, magic).


Class of 2011 graduate Joe Masek stands with one of his pieces featured in the Candy-Coated Chaos exhibition as his final project of the Individualized Major Program at the McCalla School. Masek, who studied pre-art therapy, created some of the pieces in the show with children from the foster home where he grew up as a way to demonstrate how art is helpful in healing emotional wounds.

Kerner graduated in 2011 with a degree in psychology and was in Cape Town for the spring 2010 semester. “The best thing about IU study abroad programs is there are so many destinations,” he said. Kerner had advice to give for students traveling abroad.

“Get your major out of the way quickly so you can take electives abroad,” he said. “Making friends with teachers always helps for those letters of recommendation.” Because he didn’t have many major requirements to fulfill, Kerner said he was able to take classes he wanted to while abroad, such as a course in African politics. “Try everything,” he said. “Take risks.” The “First Steps” section at the IU Overseas Study website provides information on choosing a program, financial aid, alternative overseas experience and profiles of students who have studied abroad. IU programs and non-IU programs are both offered, but prospective students need to keep some things in mind when choosing, according to the website. IU programs offer direct IU credit, grades count in GPA and most financial aid is applicable. However, students should check that credits earned in non-IU programs are transferable and that financial aid can be applied. Grades for non-IU programs are not calculated in GPA, and they do not count toward senior residency. Application instructions for programs through Overseas Study, other IU units and non-IU programs can be found at overseas.

Bad habits to avoid

*SOURCE: Inside magazine, the “Bad” issue, spring 2014 RACHEL WISINSKI

As a freshman, you'll take on a number of unfamiliar responsibilities. With them come some challenges you'll look to avoid at all costs. Don't fall into these bad habits, and it'll get easier. Here are some suggestions on how to stay on the right track.


Procrastinating It’s easy to choose Netflix instead of your econ textbook on a Monday night. But you can’t wait until the week before an exam to break the binding and still expect an A. Procrastination is a bad habit most students engage in. “I procrastinate sometimes, but I try not to,” junior Michelle Bouillon said. If you can find the motivation to complete your assignments, you’ll be well on your way to overcoming this bad habit. “I think about if I have my work done, I’ll be able to do what I want to, like hanging out with friends or watching TV,” Bouillon said. “The sooner I get my work done, the faster I can relax later.”


Skipping class You’ve hit the snooze button one too many times and missed class. No biggie. But for classes with a strict attendance policy, skipping too many can become a death sentence for your grades. Alex McCormick, associate professor in the IU School of Education, says classes are set up a certain way to expedite learning through more than just reading. “When students skip class, they miss out on whatever experiences the instructor has designed to facilitate learning, such as organized class discussions, Q&A, demonstrations, debates, guest lectures, group work, etc.,” McCormick said. He also said it’s a financially unintelligent decision because tuition is paying for the education, which doesn’t happen when the student is not present. “Students who skip class are effectively wasting part of what they’re paying,” McCormick said.


Eating habits Between work for classes and student organizations, not to mention the financial burden, eating a decent meal can be tough. Katie Shepherd, registered dietitian at the IU Health Center, said students often don’t plan their meals, which causes them to look for convenient foods that are often processed. They also skip meals, which leads to overeating later, or they do not get enough rest and they turn to caffeine and sugar instead of a healthy meal. In order to change these habits, Shepherd said setting a goal, writing it down and telling a friend can help you be more accountable. Planning meals and packing lunches for long days on campus can be most helpful. Additionally, Residential Programs and Services has instilled an Eat Right option in most dining locations. Looking for these options can alter your outlook on healthy living. “If you are taking care of your body, you will feel energized, rested, and more focused,” Shepherd said.


Spending too much money Having a social life has a price. You and your roommates get Starbucks every other day. A friend you haven’t seen for a month wants to meet for lunch. It’s your other friend’s birthday, and you promised her dinner and a night at the bars. Plus, you need a new outfit for your date. Though not essential, these expenses are part of the college experience. Daniel Spore, adjunct lecturer in the Kelley School of Business finance department, said students may be able to save money if they compare prices of products and services across different stores and shops. “If you can walk a block and save $3 on a transaction, then do so,” Spore said. Other unnecessary expenses include parking, fast food and replacement policies on electronics, including cell phones. “There are lots of local newspapers that have coupons that students can benefit from if they take the time to look and clip,” Spore said.

Tricks of the trade

Department of



Listening, listening and more listening. During day one of orientation, incoming freshmen hear from representatives of Residential Programs and Services, the Office of the Bursar and University Division, to name a few. But day two is where it gets tricky. Students have a one-hour advising appointment and then are responsible for creating a schedule from the list of classes compiled during this meeting. It’s up to the students to make their schedule a successful one, but University Division advisers are there to help. “It’s a ‘step-up’ moment,” said Joyce Miller, an assistant director of advising for University Division. “We want to see kids get off to a good start.” Miller shared several ways students can schedule their classes with ease.

Prepare for advising appointments Miller said it’s very helpful if students have an idea about what they are interested in and what they want to study. “This needs to be a two-way conversation,” she said.

Study locally, act globally


A statue of former IU president Herman B Wells is a popular campus sight, located near the Sample Gates.

Waitlisting a class is an option Miller said students should keep this in mind but warns that this doesn’t guarantee a spot in the class. “When you waitlist, you have to have an alternative plan in mind and in place,” she said.

Take the placement tests and the results seriously

Don’t skim the reading during orientation

The tests are created by departments at IU and are good indicators about how well a student will do in a class, Miller said.

It’s important for students to read the screens carefully because of the tiny differences between course numbers, Miller said. “You have to be careful you’re in the right course, not just the right department.”

Be flexible when scheduling Miller said students need to realize they are taking classes full-time and their schedule might not turn out exactly how they want.

Schedules aren’t set in stone Students can make changes to their schedule if something isn’t working or interesting to them. Miller said she doesn’t encourage it, but it’s an option if necessary.

Walk your schedule Make sure there are no surprises your first week by walking through your schedule before classes start, Miller said. This way, students will realize if 15 minutes is enough time in between classes or not. “Work that out before classes begin, so you know what you need to do.”
