Students celebrate Homecoming Week by running the Nearly Naked Mile. BY LAUREN REARICK email@example.com
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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. â€œHe put Indiana University on the map,â€? 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. â€œWhen he became president, he was determined to offer students a similar experience to what he had,â€? Capshew said. Wells is known for implementing some of the most substantial changes to the University that helped make it what it is today. â€œHe created, I think, a very extraordinary culture in Bloomington,â€? said Chancellor Ken Gros Louis, a man who knew Wells. â€œThe most recently hired custodian was as important to him as the most distinguished professor.â€? There are many stories about Wellsâ€™ successful desegregation efforts in Bloomington and on campus. â€œHe didnâ€™t rustle feathers,â€? Capshew said. â€œHe found a way to remove barriers.â€? 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. â€œWells said, â€˜I understand, but I hope you will understand if I make the Gables off-limits to all students,â€™â€? Gros Louis said. â€œThe owner started serving black students.â€? 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. â€œThatâ€™s the kind of vision he had,â€? Gros Louis said. The first building Wells constructed as president was the IU Auditorium. â€œHe said he built it because he wanted to tell students, especially students from rural Indiana, that the world was available to them,â€? 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. â€œIndiana University built the strongest foreign language program of any university in the nation,â€? Capshew said. â€œThat really got started with Wells after World War II.â€? Wells genuinely cared about the Universityâ€™s students, Capshew said. Wells developed a reputation for remembering peopleâ€™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. â€œHe really led through that empathy, that fellow feeling that he had for students and faculty,â€? 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 Dunnâ€™s Woods. â€œHeâ€™s the one that made what I think is a very special culture,â€? Gros Louis said. â€œThe time will come when nobody living will remember him, but heâ€™ll still be remembered because of what he did for this University.â€?

Notable landmarks and legends on campus BY NICOLE MONTELLA email@example.com
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.”
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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
BY MARC FISHMAN meﬁshma@indiana.edu
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.

Going greek? BY DIANNE OSLAND email@example.com
IU is home to one of the largest greek communities in the nation. But with four major councils, which one’s right for you? Here’s a rundown of the nationally recognized greek organizations on campus. IDS FILE PHOTO

Panhellenic Association Minimum 2.7 GPA Follow: @IUBPHA More information: iubpharecruitment.com 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, firstname.lastname@example.org. 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, email@example.com 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.

THE BIGGEST LITTLE RACE BY STEPHANIE KUZYDYM
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.

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.

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?

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.
