Welcome to IU, freshmen. I know you’ve been hearing this from just about everyone around you, but you’re about to embark on some of the best four years of your life. Emphasis on the some. College is hard and my bet is there will be points you find the “best four years” thing a horrible joke. You’re going to struggle to find friends you click with. You’re going to miss home and definitely any pets you had if you’re like me. You’re going to have a hard time figuring out how to read 100 pages for a class and study for an exam that is 25 percent of your grade.

The world is going to hit you in the face in so many ways you didn’t expect and that I can’t warn you about. But I promise it will be both terrifying and empowering. My best piece of advice: find your place. Mine is IU Student Media and the people of the Indiana Daily Student. It took me two years to find my home at IU and I encourage you to not wait so long to do so. There is so much more to do than making good grades and getting a good job. IU has more than 750 student organizations from student government to bee keeping to computing. Don’t wait until your senior year to take a random class outside of your area of study. You might just find out you love martial arts or that backpacking for a weekend with a dozen strangers is just what you needed before midterms.

Campus traditions are part of the IU experience Learn the words to these IU classics From freshmen to seniors, every true Hoosier should know the words to these tunes that you’ll encounter in your time at IU.


IU junior Amanda Ghaffari, a member of the 2014 IU Dance Marathon morale committee, sings along to a cover of “I Want You Back.” Each fall, IU students participate in the 36-hour Dance Marathon event to raise money for the Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. By Lauren Rearick

College life is filled with traditions old and new. Part of coming to IU might mean embracing some of IU’s past traditions — or creating new ones of your own. Whether it’s singing the fight song at basketball games or raising money at IU Dance Marathon, these Hoosier traditions run deep. Here are a few of the customs that Hoosiers enjoy together. SPORTS Many college traditions center around sports teams and events. At IU, one of the oldest traditions takes place each fall when in-state football rivals IU and Purdue battle for the Old Oaken Bucket trophy. The game dates back to the 1920s. Although Purdue has won the trophy more times, IU has retained it for the last three years. IU was one of the first universities in the nation to adopt a homecoming tradition. The annual October celebration ends with a football game. Homecoming isn’t just

about sports, though. Hoosier alumni return to campus to join in on the festivities which include a parade, pep rally, fireworks and concerts. 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 played at every IU football and basketball game. Each fall, Hoosier Hysteria marks the official kick-off to the basketball season. The event features slam dunk and three-pointer contests and is an opportunity for fans to meet the men’s and women’s teams. April’s Little 500 race is one of the definitive traditions at IU. This cycling race dates back to the 1950s. Over the years, the race and related events have been dubbed, “The World’s Greatest College Weekend.” Learn more about Little 500 and its history on page 24.

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!

event. Thousands of students participate in IUDM to help raise money for Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis. Each year, Zeta Tau Alpha presents Big Man on Campus. Fraternities compete in a talent show for the BMOC crown while raising money for breast cancer research. In 2015, the event brought in more than $220,000. Each year before homecoming, students participate in the Nearly Naked Mile where scantily-clad students run a mile around campus. Money or donations of fall and winter clothing are collected and given to a local organization in need.

JUST FOR FUN Feeling romantic? According to IU lore, couple who kiss in the Rose Well House on Valentine’s Day are destined to stay together. Feeling artsy? The Light Totem sculpture was installed outside the Eskenazi Museum of Art in 2006. A tradition soon developed where students lay on their backs with their feet up on the museum wall to watch the colors of the changing lights.

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 landscape around the house reflects the theme of the president at the time. President McRobbie’s theme is sustainability.

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 must be planted. Additionally, the “Sweetheart Tree,� which currently stands inside the Chemistry Building, was not to be touched.

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. The chapel has been known to be booked for longer than a year.

Dunn Family cemeteries Where Adjacent to Beck Chapel and in front of Foster Quad.

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.�

The Rose Well House 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.

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.


Showalter Fountain, which features the birth of Venus, sits in front of the IU Auditorium. The piece was done by fine arts professor Robert Laurent in the 1950s.

A bucket list for your time in Bloomington By Amanda jacobson

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

Freshman and sophomore years Dip your toes in Showalter Fountain The Showalter Fountain is a monument to IU’s arts history, but it is also a 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.

Visit the tailgate fields The tailgate fields are often synonymous with drinking and loud music, but you can go just to hang out with friends or people-watch. They're the place to be during football season. Wake up early, wear an old pair of shoes because they'll get muddy, put on your best cream and crimson clothing and get ready to cheer on the football team.

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

How to Safely Ride the Bus IU Campus Bus Service provides public transportation for the IU Bloomington campus.

Hike around Griffy Lake Only a short drive from town is Griffy Lake with all of its trails and exploration possibilities. You can spend a day getting lost and exploring trails, or even rent a kayak and paddle around. This can be something you and your friends do and picnic at some point along the trail, or if you just need to escape you can drive up by yourself and lose yourself for a few hours.

For your SAFETY: •

Wait at designated bus stops only. Buses may only board or alight passengers at designated stops.

Board at the FRONT door only.

Move to the rear of the bus after boarding so that as many as possible may board the bus.

Do not stand forward of the white line in the front of the bus. This is a federal safety regulation to allow the bus driver a clear field of vision.

Pull the stop request cord to signal the driver you would like to exit at the next stop.

Exit at the REAR door. This will expedite the boarding of passengers.

Do not cross in front of the bus after exiting. Wait until the bus has pulled away from the bus stop and you have a clear field of vision in both directions before crossing the street.

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 with friends or enjoy the patio on a spring day.

Junior and senior years Spend a summer in Bloomington There really is no other time like summer in Bloomington. With most students leaving town, Bloomington’s entire dynamic changes. You’ll almost never have to wait in line for anything, but be wary of shifting summer hours. Summer also brings a wide variety of culture events. You can test your palette at Taste of Bloomington or spend a weekend laughing at the Limestone Comedy Festival.

Take an elective Need a break from your major or just need one more class to qualify as a full-time student? Take an elective and fully take advantage of the little time you have as a college student.

Talking campus safety IU Police Department chief offers tips on staying safe during your time at IU. By Holly Hays

It’s important that you feel safe and are safe during your time here at IU. The IU Police Department operates on campus with a fleet of 13 vehicles and 40 full-time officers plus around 60 part-time officers and cadets. It’s also important to remember that you have many resources at IU that work together to keep you safe. We caught up with IUPD Chief Laury Flint to get the 4-1-1 on when you should dial 9-1-1.

Who should I contact first in the event that I feel unsafe? Please contact IUPD first and immediately if you feel unsafe for any reason.

What options do I have to get a safe ride home on campus? Safety Escort ( is a student-run transportation service for IU Bloomington students and staff as an alternative to walking alone at night. Safety Escort is funded through IU Parking Services,

so there is no cost to ride. Hours are Sunday through Thursday from 8 p.m. to 1:45 a.m., and Friday/Saturday 8 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. Call 812855-SAFE (855-7233) for a ride. Laury Flint While summer classes are in session, hours are 8 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. seven days a week. The service stops taking calls before closing time if its call capacity is reached for the night. Last year the service went mobile by allowing Android and Apple device users to arrange for rides using the TapRide app. There are also several taxi services in Bloomington whose rates vary depending on the distance travelled.

What are those blue lights I see spread across campus? The blue lights have a (red) button that can be pressed to immediately call 911 in the event of an emergency. The location of the blue light is automatically communicated to the police. Blue lights also have the capability of allowing a caller to dial a local number in a nonemergency situation.

What is IUPD? IUPD is Indiana University’s very own police department that operates all day, every day.

What’s the difference between IUPD and BPD? IUPD’s primary area of jurisdiction is the IU campus, while Bloomington Police Department’s primary area of jurisdiction is the surrounding city.

Do you have any suggestions for how I can stay safest on campus? If you see something that makes you feel uneasy or you consider to be unsafe, call 911 immediately. IUPD would rather respond and find that there is no problem than not receive a call. IUPD offers several safety programs and group presentations, including the Rape Aggression Defense course. See indiana. edu/~iupd/communityPrograms.html for more information. Students are also encouraged to talk to police officers anytime, not just when there is a problem. Part-time officers are full-time students at IU Bloomington who also completed the IU Police Academy to become fully sworn Indiana law enforcement officers. Many of them live in and/or work at the campus dormitories.

Are there social media accounts to follow to stay on top of campus safety? It is important to keep contact information current for the university’s IU Notify emergency alert system. Students can do this by logging into and conducting a search for IU Notify. IU Notify is used for two types of notices: emergency notifications warn students when they need to take immediate action to avoid danger, and crime alerts warn of ongoing threats or concerns of which students should be aware such as a sexual assault.

The Wells effect Exploring Herman B Wells’ legacy as president and chancellor of IU


Rick Wood, editor-in-chief of the Indiana Daily Student, took this often-reproduced photo of Herman B Wells in 1977 as the then-chancellor strolled through campus.

By Brian Gamache

“He wanted to dedicate his life to the University.”

Herman B Wells was the president of IU for 25 years, from 1938 until 1962, and expanded the University from 11,000 students to more than 31,000 at the time of his retirement. After his retirement, he became the chancellor of the University, a position created expressly for him, which he held until his death in 2000. Wells fell in love with the University during his college career in the 1920s, said James Capshew, IU faculty member and Wells biographer. “He wanted to dedicate his life to the University,” Capshew said. Wells’ legacy is still intact, present in legend and in the campus he helped build. “He would walk all the pathways at night with a book,” said Jerik Tumang, IU student and campus tour guide. “And wherever he couldn’t read, he would mark the spot with a stake and a light would go up within a week.” Wells was often seen walking around campus and interacting with students and faculty, Tumang said.

James Capshew, IU faculty member and Wells biographer

“He would meet them on their own level and challenge them,” Capshew said. “He had a feeling for how people worked and how they responded.” His commitment to all IU students was not just a story. He personally signed the diploma of every single student who graduated from IU in his 25 years as president, 62,621 diplomas total, according to “Herman B Wells: The Promise of the American University,” written by Capshew. In his final speech as president, Wells said, “In the act of signing I felt some individual participation in the joy and satisfaction of each graduate.” Wells believed in the “brotherhood of humanity” and social justice, advocating for equality across campus. He insisted on integrating the University SEE WELLS, PAGE 31

We put together some tips and tricks on how to fight the homesick blues. By Holly Hays

You’re in a new place. You’re on your own. For the first time ever, you’re getting to call the shots and make the decisions about what you’re doing with your time. This exciting, new-found independence comes as a perk of being a freshman in college. But what happens when you’re sitting alone in your dorm on a Friday night and you realize you’re sitting in your dorm alone on a Friday night? This is where homesickness creeps in. It hits. And it hits hard. Making the adjustment from high school to college is difficult. Not just academically, but socially and emotionally, as well. Not only are you adjusting to a new class schedule, academically challenging classes and are perhaps outside of your comfort zone, but you have to be away from your family, too. Maybe you’re missing your mom, your dad, your sibling or your pet and you’re feeling a little down and out. The first thing you should know is that homesickness is perfectly normal. There’s a good chance you’re experiencing things now that you’ve never had to experience before, so wanting to go home is a natural reaction. Homesickness is all part of the adjustment process. The second thing you should know about homesickness is that it’s absolutely temporary. Homesickness lasts as long as you let it. Who says you should stay in your dorm and worry about what’s going on back home when there’s a whole world of possibilities out there for you to explore? Melanie Payne, director of New Student Orientation, said homesickness is more common among freshmen than students might think. Even the most seasoned traveler or independent student will experience homesickness at some point during their freshman year. “Most students think they’re not going to go through it,” she said. But when it finally hits them, she said, it can be a little hard to combat. When the homesickness hits, it’s important that students are able to hit back. We put together a list of some tips and tricks on how to combat homesickness during your freshman year.

Clean your room Okay, so this sounds boring. But cleaning and doing laundry helps me keep my mind off things, so it’s worth a shot. Put on some music (not too loud!) and dust, do your laundry or clean your desk.

Get out So you’ve realized you are alone in your dorm on a Friday night. You don’t have to be alone in your dorm on a Friday night. Take a walk over to the Union and see what’s going on. Play pool or go bowling. If there’s a movie showing at the Whittenberger Auditorium, take your ID and go watch it for free. If going out by yourself doesn’t float your boat, maybe you can move your Netflix party to your floor lounge at your residence hall. Sure, it can be a little intimidating to go sit in a lounge with people you don’t know, but you can make friends that way. Plus, you can sit in the corner and people-watch, which is the ultimate time-passing activity. It’s a win-win-win situation.

Join a club If you find that there’s a specific time of the week or day during which homesickness hits you the hardest, find something to do to distract yourself. One way of doing this is by joining a club to fill that particular time. Now, I’m not saying you should go out and fill every second of free time you have, because you should definitely allow yourself time to decompress. There are countless student organizations here at IU for you to get involved in that require varied time commitments. There are service-based organizations that allow you to explore Bloomington while completing community service. There is also a wide selection of club sports from ballroom dancing to basketball. Join a team and work off some of the stress from your finite class or get your mind off of how much you miss your stubborn-but-lovable little sister. I know this is easier said than done because it’s not always easy to put yourself out there in social situations. But what’s worse? Being stuck in your dorm alone all evening or having to make small talk?

Phone home If you’re missing a specific person, whether it’s your mom, your dad, your sibling or your pet, give them a call. Sometimes you just need to hear someone tell you everything is going to be OK. It’s nice to hear that reminder.

Skype or FaceTime Sometimes it’s even nicer to see their smiling faces. If you have the option, try talking to your family via FaceTime or Skype. Sometimes you can use this as an excuse to show your roommate how cute your dog is. I met my friend’s dog, Teddy, over FaceTime, which was pretty great.

“Starting your IU experience? Promise yourself that you’ll not just eat at one of Bloomington’s great ‘ethnic’ restaurants, but that you’ll get to know some international students as friends; that you’ll not just read about the research of Alfred Kinsey, but that you’ll hang out with some students who identify themselves as ‘gender fluid, gay or queer;’ that you’ll not just spend time with friends from high school, but that you’ll drop by the First Nations Cultural Center, or La Casa or the Black Culture Center and participate in the programs they have to offer. Promise yourself that you’ll open your mind to new experiences and I promise YOU that your days at IU will be rich and rewarding in so many ways.” Doug Bauder, director of the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender Student Support Services Office

Words of wisdom 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.

“Three things new students don’t need to bring to campus: A car: IUB is a walkable, bicycle-friendly campus served by campus and city bus systems. All new room furnishings: Cool incoming students shop the Hoosier-toHoosier Sale, on August 20, where all the room furnishings you can imagine. Bottled water: Bring a refillable container for water. Filtered water bottle filling stations are in all residence halls and in most buildings on campus.” Bill Brown, director of sustainability

“My simple rules for success at IU: Be where you are scheduled to be, on time, and pay attention. No one can ask you to do more than your personal best.” Laury Flint, IU Police Department chief of police

“IU is an amazing place to meet people from all over the world. Make an international friend, try new foods, learn another culture! It’s not only fun, but global competency is appreciated by future employers.”

“Old people like me often say: ‘I wish I knew then what I know now.’ What I wish I knew going into college and what I’d like our freshmen to know is that even though you may feel that everyone else is confident, cool, and has it figured out, they don’t. Just like me/you they are mostly unsure and not particularly confident. So, put yourself out there.”

“The best thing you can do for yourself as a new student at IU is to keep an open mind and get involved on campus. The IUSA Freshman Internship Program is one of many ways to meet new people through student government and build a network early on but you should pursue whatever interests you and if you can’t find it, start your own organization through Student Life and Learning!”

Fred Glass, IU athletic director

“Above all, Indiana University is a place of opportunities. Whether it’s studying abroad, attending a performance of the African American Arts Institute, or accessing our many free academic resources, I encourage you to take advantage of all the opportunities waiting for you here.”

Sara Zaheer, IU Student Association president

Members of IU’s soccer team celebrate after freshman midfielder Rece Buckmaster scored a goal during IU’s game against Bulter on Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2015, at the Butler Bowl.

2016-17 sports to watch By Michael Hughes | @MichaelHughes94

Everyone knows about the men’s basketball team. Many also know about the football team playing in its first bowl game since 2007 last year. But there are 22 other varsity sports at IU that form the motto “24 sports, 1 team.” Here are some sports you should keep an eye on the upcoming school year.

Baseball In what is considered a rebuilding year for the baseball program, IU still threatened to win a Big Ten title. In his second year, IU Coach Chris Lemonis managed to rebound from a slow start to the regular season to once again place IU among the conference’s elite. For next season, Lemonis will once again be forced to fill holes left by graduating seniors, and possibly underclassmen taken in the Major League Baseball Draft. All three of IU’s starting pitchers are graduating, one of its best relief pitchers and its closer figures to be taken early in June’s draft. But he will not be forced to rebuild the majority of his lineup like this season. Only one of IU’s nine hitters is graduating, and five are still considered too young to be taken in the draft. Next season could see Lemonis start his own streak of NCAA Tournament appearances.

Men’s soccer In terms of success, there’s not much that rivals the men’s soccer program. Eight national titles and 14 Big Ten regular season titles are a couple of the accolades that sets this program apart. Current IU Coach Todd Yeagley was named the National Player of the Year

on an IU team that lost in the national championship and was coached by his father, Jerry Yeagley, otherwise known as the Godfather of college soccer. This year, the Hoosiers figure to be one of the country’s elite once again. Bringing back nine of 11 starters from a team that advanced to the Round of 16

in the NCAA Tournament last year, IU is projected by some to start the season in the top 10. Its first home weekend, IU will be tested. As part of the Adidas/IU Credit Union Classic, IU will play Cal and defending national champion Stanford in Bloomington.

Women’s basketball Another coach spent her second year building a program. After a tumultuous first season, Teri Moren coached one of the best IU teams in recent memory. For the first time since 2007, IU qualified for the NCAA Tournament. For the first time since 1992, IU won an NCAA Tournament game. Now-juniors Tyra Buss and Amanda Cahill were also named to All-Big Ten teams following the season. IU is also only slated to lose one player for next season, forward Lyndsay Leikem, who graduated a year early to join the FBI. After a historic season, the Hoosiers are essentially bringing every player back, while still adding new young talent through recruiting and transfers. Next season could see more history being made.

The Little 500: More than just a bicycle race Meet the man responsible for creating the country’s greatest college weekend. By Courtney Robb

It’s known as the greatest college weekend in America, and it all began on a spring day in May 1950. The founder of the Little 500, Howard S. “Howdy” Wilcox, who was the IU Student Foundation executive director at the time, was wandering around campus when he heard the roars of crowds from a few yards across campus while a couple of students were holding a bicycle race. After he discovered these students, Wilcox had an idea. At that time, he was in charge of overseeing fundraising ideas for the foundation. Inspired by the students racing, and his father’s win at the Indianapolis 500, he came up with the idea to hold a bike race. This wasn’t just any normal race. Students would race bicycles to the rules and regulations of the Indianapolis 500. The first race would be held in 1951 and called the “Little 500.” Wilcox, who attended IU as an undergrad in the 1930s, later came to be known as the Father of the Little 500. With more than 60 teams, the race is just as popular now as it was in 1951. Little 500 started off with more than 60 teams — adding 38 women’s teams in 1988

— and although we don’t have quite as many today the spectator numbers have exploded from 500 to about 6,000 since 1951, said Jordan Bailey, Little 500 race Wilcox director. The most important idea about the Little 500 was the money it made for the student foundation, John Schwarb, author of “The Little 500: The Story of the World’s Greatest College Weekend” said. “This sounds hard to believe now, but when Wilcox first took over as IU Foundation executive director, it wasn’t pulling in that much money,” Schwarb said in an email. “He wasn’t sure alumni understood what the Foundation was all about. Maybe he couldn’t change his current alumni base, but he could mold the current students so they could become more active later as adults.” Throughout the years, the race has evolved into the weekend that every alumnus and IU student waits for with the help of important faculty members. “I credit Bill Armstrong for fine-tuning the Little 500 into the star-studded, full weekend that it later became, but the origination was all Howdy Wilcox’s,” Schwarb said. The Little 500 isn’t something that is

ARBUTUS FILE PHOTO In 1984, the Cutters won their first Little 500. The team took its name from the Academy Award-winning film “Breaking Away,” which featured a fictional Cutters team. Filmed in Bloomington, the movie brought national attention to Wilcox’s bike race, and it and the Cutters have remained a part of Little 500 tradition.

planned overnight. The Student Foundation puts a large time commitment into planning Little 500. The riders don’t take it lightly, either. They practice riding from the fall all the way up until the ride in April. “When I was a student, I was amazed at the time riders and IUSF people put into the event. It’s not just a party you throw together a month

ahead of time,” Schwarb said. It’s not just a bike race, but something that allows students and alumni to really come together and connect, Bailey said. “It’s unique because it’s an event where all the students come together for one awesome activity, and it’s an awesome connection from students to alumni,” Bailey said.

A completely new environment is tough to adjust to, and trying to navigate a college lifestyle for the first time is bound to come with some mistakes. Below are some rules to stick to if you’re looking for a smooth transition. Have an agenda system, and stick to it. Don’t be that person who shows up for class and has to ask for paper and a pen every day. Nobody likes that person, and there are only so many times you can pass your irresponsibility off as a quirky personality trait. You never know when your professor is going to drop deadlines on you, and not all important dates are always on the class syllabus. Whether you pick up an agenda at Barnes and Noble or use an app, keep it close and keep it updated. You’ll thank yourself later when you’re searching through scraps of paper in your backpack to find out where you scribbled the due date for your sociology term paper. Find your people. Friends are a lifeline when you’re trying to balance class work, homesickness and some kind of social life. They understand calling at 3 a.m. when you’re pulling an all-nighter — your little sister probably doesn’t. They won’t judge you (too harshly) for eating nothing but cereal out of the box that entire night. Finding your people can be easy, especially with


such a big campus. Talk to someone next to you in class, try to be civil with your roommate, actually talk to people at your floor meetings. Student organizations are one of the best ways to meet new people who share your interests, and there’s a surplus of them on campus. Plan, plan, plan. Remember that agenda? Try to use it to look ahead for bigger dates, not just upcoming deadlines. If you want to plan ahead for finals, it’ll be a lot easier when you have access to when they are (Dec. 12-16, for fall 2016). And don’t forget your days off : Labor Day is Sept. 5, fall break runs from Oct. 7-9, and you have the entire week of Thanksgiving off. Having the bigger dates in your planner can help you better manage your time throughout the semester. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Use a campus map if you have to (you will). Bus routes and tracking and campus maps are all available on IU’s phone app, so you don’t have to look like a tourist when you’re lost in Swain West. It’s always helpful to figure out where your classrooms are before classes start, anyway. And Hoosiers are generally on the kinder side, so asking someone on campus for a little guidance isn’t embarrassing.

Leave time to have a little bit of fun. Freshman year of college hits you with a lot of responsibility. You’re living on your own, fumbling through your first solo loads of laundry and suddenly you’re responsible for feeding yourself three times a day, not to mention trying to pass all of your classes. Make sure you give yourself some breathing room. Overloading yourself with study sessions and student organization meetings might look good on your transcript, but that transcript won’t be worth anything if you’ve burned yourself out by sophomore year. Be a little reckless, stay up late with your friends, go out dancing and don’t be afraid to have some fun. Balance is key. Get off campus a time or two. IU students are generally known for spending the majority of their time confined to campus. It makes sense — if you’re car-less and in a town you don’t know that well, sticking to your comfort zones generally keeps you safe. But Bloomington and its surrounding environment is beautiful, and some places are worth a longer bus ride for some great memories. Head down to Nashville, Indiana for some small-town charm or up to Indy for some great museums and restaurants. If you want to stick closer to Bloomington, try out

an off-the-map restaurant or take in the beauty of Rooftop Quarries. Just get a breath of fresh air every once in a while. You’re not just living at IU, you’re living in Bloomington. Stay sane. Freshman year is stressful, and it’s important to look out for your mental and physical health. If you’re having trouble balancing all the new parts of your life, IU’s Counseling and Psychological Services is always a great resource for on-campus counseling. But if you’re looking for more minor stress reducers during the semester, try exercise, actually getting eight hours of sleep, eating less junk food or even cuddling puppies at the mall or at the Bloomington Animal Shelter on South Walnut. A simple phone call to your family might be the remedy to a terrible day, or a trip home for the weekend if that’s possible for you. It can be hard to find time for yourself in the midst of such a busy time of your life, but carve it out for yourself. You’ll be happy you did.

The how-to to student groups By Anicka Slachta | @ajslachta

IU’s campus is huge, and the sheer size of the undergraduate population can be intimidating. If you’re trying to find your “people” in the masses, checking out some of IU’s 750 student organizations might be the way to go. Student groups range from language circles to professional interest groups and draw on subjects like politics, service, religion, academics and sports. And you’d be surprised how specific they get — look into the Harry Potter Society or the Obstacle Course Racing Club. Even if you don’t find a group that suits your style, you can always create one yourself. As great as having hundreds of student organizations is, the number can be overwhelming. These are some of the ways you can find your place on campus.


Hundreds of students learn about and interact with IU’s student organizations on Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2015 at the Involvement Fair in Dunn Meadow.

The Student Involvement Fair Every fall, student organizations flood Dunn Meadow to represent their groups and attract new members. Be there between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. Aug. 29 to navigate the fair, ask questions and interact with current members of organizations. Peer Involvement Mentors and Student Life and Learning staff will be available to help you, and call-out meetings throughout the week will give you a taste for what a group is like.

beINvolved If you missed the fair or are just looking to try something out mid- or late-semester, sign in to with your IU username and password and sift through some of their featured opportunities. The site is an easy way to stay updated with campus activities and manage the organizations you’re a part of.

Sidewalk chalk Rain or shine, warm or below freezing, students advertise their meetings and group events with sidewalk chalk. Look down any time of the year to find every inch of the pavement covered with bright messages during Welcome Week. Bulletin boards There are boards all across classroom

buildings, outside and even in local restaurants that will advertise activities throughout the year.

The textbook dilemma: to rent, buy or go digital? With increasingly pricey college tuition comes more expensive textbooks, too. We have the information you need to make sure you get your books, no matter your budget. CONS Rental books have to be kept in good condition, so you can’t write in them as much.

By Caitlin Ryan

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 retailers and websites like PROS Renting a textbook is cheaper than purchasing one, and you don’t have to keep a book you don’t want. According to TIS, renting textbooks usually saves you 60 percent off the list price of the book.

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, some of which can be read on e-readers, tablets or smartphones. Most e-textbooks, however, are formatted to be read on the larger screen of a laptop or


desktop computer. 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 else can I 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 big-item books. 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 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.

Feeling under the weather? IUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health center can help By Alex Rast

The IU Health Center offers services for IU students who need medical assistance, including full service appointments, a walk-in clinic, a counseling center, a pharmacy, lab tests and x-rays, physical examinations and allergy shots. Here is a list of services that could be beneficial to you your freshman year for when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling unwell. Full service appointment or walk-in clinic 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. 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 IU Pharmacy is located within the Health Center and accepts many prescription cards.

The pharmacy also has three full-time pharmacists who are always available to answer questions.

Immunization/allergies The Health Center offers a variety of vaccines, 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 studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individual needs, following instructions given by the studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s allergist.

Let’s talk about sex Browse the world-famous Kinsey Institute By Hannah Alani

The year was 1938, and Dr. Alfred Kinsey engaged a packed auditorium of anxious students in conversation about a taboo topic: sex. Decades later, Kinsey’s devotion to studying human sexuality and shattering the silence on sexual health is illuminated in the halls of the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction and continues to inspire and inform IU students, the Bloomington community and the world. The Kinsey Institute is the world’s leading sexuality and sexual health research center Jennifer Bass, Kinsey Communications Director, said. “As you go around the world, people might know the Kinsey Institute and might not even know Indiana University,” Bass said. “It takes time for some students to know that we’re even here.” In addition to its research and educational programs, the Institute has rotating art exhibits that change in theme each semester.

“I love going and looking at it. I think I’m always surprised by something I see just because you see things produced more than a hundred years ago that you never thought about existing then.” Susannah Beckman, junior majoring in gender studies

In addition to her class at Kinsey, the art is another reason for then-junior English and gender studies major Susannah Beckman to visit the Institute. “I love going and looking at it,” Beckman said. “I think I’m always surprised by something I see just because you see things produced more than a hundred years ago that you never thought about existing then.” Studying the portrayal of sexuality throughout history helps students and researchers better understand sex, Bass said. “There’s only so much you can learn from talking about sex, and there’s only so much you can learn about emotions from words,” Bass said. “If you look at artwork from different times about sensitive topics, you get to a different understanding of where you are now.” Studying erotic art throughout history is helpful for society when thinking about modern pornography, former Kinsey Art Curator Catherine Johnson-Roehr said. “Artists have been interested in depicting the human body and images of a sexual nature in almost forever,” Johnson-Roehr said. “The fact that they continue today is not surprising.” One of the spring 2015 print exhibits even included a print by Rembrandt called the French Bed. “It’s very interesting to realize, ‘Wow, there was a lot going on before you were born,’” Bass said. “It helps put things in perspective about our world and as us as humans that books cannot do.” Bass said the Institute began showcasing its archived art as thematic exhibits in 1996. “There’s so much amazing art at the Kin-

sey Institute that you won’t get to see anywhere else,” Beckman said. “It’s a great opportunity to see the new shows and to see as much of it as possible.” Visitors can be assured that there will always be art for them to see when they come to Morrison Hall. “The unique thing is that our shows change,” Johnson-Roehr said. “Somebody who came here last year will see something different when they come back.” The Institute has recently shifted its research focus to studying the biology of sex and relationships, Bass said. “The focus has been on sexuality and why people make decisions on what they do with their sex lives,” Bass said. “Now, it’s getting more to the biological basis of love and nurture.” Other topics being explored by current research at the Institute includes studying sexual assault on campus, hormonal contraceptives in various environments and long-term relationships versus “hookups,” Bass said. “It’s a scholarship all on its own and a language all on its own,” Bass said. “It’s really profound.” For more information, visit

Going greek? 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.

By Dianne Osland

National Pan-Hellenic Council

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.”

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 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.”

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. 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.”

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.

Looking for a major that can lead to a fulfilling career helping others? Explore Speech & Hearing Sciences. IU’s graduate programs in Speech & Hearing Sciences are ranked #12 and #17 in the US — most of these same outstanding graduate faculty teach our undergraduates. Most of our graduates go on to graduate programs for training in speech-language pathology (2-yr Master’s degree) or audiology (3-yr or 4-yr Professional Doctorate, AuD). Our major is interdisciplinary with considerable coursework in psychology, development, anatomy & physiology, linguistics, and acoustics.

DID YOU KNOW? The US Department of Labor (2012) reports that… • The median annual salary for speech therapists is $69,870 and job growth is projected at 19% from 2012-2022 (“faster than average”). • The median annual salary for audiologists is $69,720 and job growth is projected at 34% from 2012-2022 (“much faster than average”). • Clearly, an SPHS major offers the opportunity to “do well” for the foreseeable future.

Speech-language pathologists and audiologist diagnose and treat communication disorders in people ranging from newborns to older adults — our majors have the chance to enjoy a life-long fulfilling career in which they also “do good” by helping their fellow human beings.

To start your journey, register this fall for SPHS S-106.

Students create their own majors with IMP By Claire Aronson

Animated movies by Disney and Pixar took on a new meaning for former IU student 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 bigname studios, so I just figured that this is what I wanted to do.” The IMP began in the 1960s and was amongst the first of its kind, said Paul N. Aarstad, the assistant director of IMP. It benefits students who can’t find a convential major and has sense expanded to include individualized minors. “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. Though IU doesn’t have specific animation classes, the University does

offer digital art classes and telecommunications production classes and it teaches the necessary programs, Gregg said. “There is a lot of self-exploration and self-teaching,” 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. Get to know IMP Interested in potentially exploring your own individualized major? Here’s some information about the program and how you can get started. 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 control 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.

Campus landmarks under renovation A number of athletic and academic facilities are in the process of undergoing changes Athletic facilities

Hodge Hall â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kelley School of Business

IU Athletics received a $40 million donation â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the largest gift in its extensive history â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from IU alumna Cindy Simon Skjodt, to provide renovations to Assembly Hall and launch â&#x20AC;&#x153;Catching Excellence: The Campaign for Indiana University Athletics.â&#x20AC;? When this was announced in December 2013, IU President Michael McRobbie also announced that in honor of her donation, the building would be renamed the Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall (as of the completion of renovations in fall 2016). The updates will also include enclosing the south endzone of Memorial Stadium, which will provide more seating and a better gameday atmosphere. Main updates for Assembly Hall include South lobby restructured with a new entryway and atrium Escalators will replace ramps in the south lobby New branding and graphics throughout the arena Remodeling of the bathrooms and concession stands, as well as additional bathrooms Box-seat-style seating installed above the south baseline bleachers

Beginning March 2012 with the naming of the Kelley undergraduate building â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hodge Hall,â&#x20AC;? a $60 million expansion and renovation project was launched. The majority of the changes have now been made.

Three levels â&#x20AC;&#x201D; or 29,000 square feet â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be added to the front of the current SPEA building by the completion of the project. This is mainly for graduate students who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough space in the school. The project is funded by the school, as well as by gifts from Paul Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill, an IU alumnus and former United States secretary of the treasury, and David Wang, founding chairman of the SPEA advisory council. Construction began during summer 2015 and is expected to be completed by August 2016.


After construction is completed Assembly Hall will have a new entrance to the south lobby complete with an atrium.

59 Eskenazi Museum of Art The IU Art Museum changed its name to the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art after they donated $15 million for renovations and improvements to the museum. McRobbie announced the changes in May 2016. The University plans to invest another $20 million into For All: The Indiana University Bicentennial Campaign. In addition to their generous monetary gift, the Eskenazi’s will donate a collection of nearly 100 pieces of art. Plans for the enhancements to the building are still being discussed but are to be completed by 2020.


Starting in fall 2016, the new Media School will be housed in Franklin Hall, which has undergone extensive renovation.

Franklin Hall — The Media School Construction to Franklin Hall, home to the new Media School this coming school year, began at the end of 2014. Last year, they had laid out a 13-page master plan for the completion of the renovation — set to be substantially done by June 2016. The most significant change will be a commons area with a massive glass

skylight. Another part of the plan was restoration of the building’s limestone structure, replaced or repaired windows and fixed louvers. Inside, contractors have been working on the electrical wiring and plumbing, finishing drywall and installing doors and floors.


Thanks to a $15 million donation, the art museum will receive renovations to many parts including its galleries.

Campus directors discuss art at IU Experimental film, cultural explorations and art exhibits are a few of the activities students have access to during their time at IU. The directors and administrators of some of the art hubs on campus offer several of their suggestions for anyone interested in an artistic experience. By Sanya Ali

IU Art Museum Former director Heidi Gealt said she has a few favorite exhibits that she thinks “speak to the human condition.” “On the third floor, you will find an Olmec Vessel from Santa Cruz, Mexico, in the form of an Old Woman which was made well over three thousand years ago. It is an unforgettable image of old age and suffering. On our second floor we have a sculpture made in Japan about a thousand years ago which shows a little boy, Prince Shokotu Taishi, age 2, who was venerated as the reincarnation of the Buddha. Here is a 2-year-old in perfect composure and peace — so endearing. On the first floor, you will find a small, tenderly painted likeness of a lady by Gerard ter Borch, the Dutch 17th century master. This middle-aged woman is so honestly described that you feel like you

are meeting one of the Dutch citizens who made their country thrive economically and artistically.” For more information regarding hours and exhibits, go to

Mathers Museum of World Cultures Jason Jackson, director of the Mathers Museum, gives a preview of one exhibit that he said he believes accurately introduces patrons to the museum’s mission. “Our ‘What is Culture?’ exhibition is a great gateway to the many special exhibitions that we host year-round. ‘What is Culture?’ provides an overview of our rich collections from around the world while answering a big question that every new Hoosier should ponder while settling into our culturally rich campus and city.” For more information regarding the museum’s collections and hours, go to

Orienter 2016 The Kinsey Institute Catherine Johnson-Roehr, former curator of arts, artifacts and photographs, said the wide range of material Kinsey has to offer is not to be missed on a visit to IU. “The Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction, founded by IU professor Alfred Kinsey in 1947, houses one of the world’s largest collections of sexual art and artifacts, as well as books, magazines, manuscripts and film. Although our materials may not be of interest to every visitor, we hope that many come to Morrison Hall to check out our unique exhibitions, which change every semester. Whenever people choose to visit, they will find a mix of vintage and contemporary artwork, photographs and rare books on display throughout the Institute.” For more information regarding the institute, visit

Grunwald Gallery of Art Director Elizabeth Stirrat takes pride in the work of IU’s master’s students, whose work is prominently displayed throughout the year. “Gallery visitors should absolutely see the three different MFA Thesis Shows at the Grunwald Gallery. These shows feature the work of graduating masters of fine

61 arts students and are their final public accomplishment before they receive their degree. These exhibits occur between spring break and the end of the school year in the spring. The exhibits are well-conceived, ambitious exhibits of work in all media. The artists have planned and designed their shows based on their experiences in the School of Fine Arts Studio Program.” For more information, visit

IU Cinema Director Jon Vickers encouraged seeing a film at the cinema, which has seen a good deal of praise from some notable visitors throughout the years. “Meryl Streep has called it ‘one of the finest projection houses I have ever seen’ and Werner Herzog said it’s ‘one of the best in the Midwest, or perhaps in the country.’ ” Additionally, the films selected at the Cinema — such as “Blade Runner,”“Amélie” and “The Salvation” — show off its state-ofthe-art systems. “If you’ve seen a big movie at the Cinema, then take a chance on something that you’ve never heard of — especially if a filmmaker is in attendance.” For information about showings and special features, visit

Habits to avoid

Orienter 2016

We all have bad habits, but these are some of the worst to have during college. By 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, said 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.

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 might 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.
