LETTER FROM THE EDITOR MICHAEL WILLIAMS is a recent journalism graduate.

Perhaps the limestone buildings and beautiful landscapes of this university have already endeared this campus to you. They made an immediate impression on my the first time I visited Bloomington. I can tell you that you have not seen anything yet. Your first weeks on campus will be a blur of new friends and new opportunities. Embrace them. In this publication, we here at IU student media will try to help you prepare for your first days, weeks and months as a student as best we can. You’ll find advice from students, graduates and faculty, information on textbooks and safety, and details of CONTACT US Newsroom 812-855-0760

the traditions that now become your traditions. IU student media will be here for you after you’ve arrived as well. The Indiana Daily Student started keeping students and the IU community informed 150 years ago, and we’ll continue to do that at and in print for as long as you’re a student and beyond. You may even see your classmates picking up cameras or notepads and helping us do so. Inside magazine will bring you stories about your fellow students and the topics on your mind twice a semester, and the Arbutus yearbook will collect the highlights of the year at IU. Make the most of Welcome Week. Within a couple days of arriving on campus, I walked in to the IDS newsroom. Four years later, I’m still not ready to walk out.

rounded by friends and mentors that constantly make you a better person, and the next four years will fly by. Don’t miss your opportunity to hit the ground running when you arrive. You will only ever be a freshman once, and I think those first weeks are among the most exciting you’ll experience in all of college. Four years from now, you and your friends will find that a part of you wants to go right back to the start and experience every moment all over again. Don’t forget to appreciate it the first time around. Welcome to IU.

Student life through the years You’ll study a lot — but there’s much more to being a Hoosier. Here are some experiences of those who came before you.

2014 Reem Alturki listens to stories of lives lost during the summer violence in Israel and Palestine during a vigil at Showalter Fountain. IU ARCHIVES 1890 Members of the baseball team pose for a group portrait.



IU ARCHIVES 1948 All-American George Taliaferro led the Hoosier football program to its only undefeated Big Ten Conference championship. He was the first African American player to be drafted into the NFL.


1968 Students dance at one of the many get-togethers during the 1960s. Dances ranged from casual events to formal balls.


2011 Basketball fans celebrate IU’s victory against No. 1 Kentucky in Assembly Hall.

2013 Students participate in the annual Jill Behrman 5K Color the Campus event. The race honors the memory of Behrman and raises awareness of issues of violence. Behrman was killed in 2000. Her former employer, Recreational Sports, organizes the event and awards scholarships in her name.


1980 Students race to eat 25 marshmallows without using their hands.

Sights of IU Campus is filled with iconic things to see. Here are a few you’ll need to check out.

Eve, from the “Adam and Eve” sculpture located in Dunn Woods, is among many public works of art you’ll see on campus. Sometimes students dress up the nude bronzes — in cold weather you might see them wearing scarves or hats.

A sculpture of legendary composer Hoagy Carmichael sits at the entrance to the IU Cinema. Passers-by often leave flowers in the hand of the IU alumnus.

Showalter Fountain is in the center of IU’s arts plaza. The 1958 sculpture represents the “Birth of Venus.” Over the years, it has been a gathering place for hanging out, vigils and sports victory celebrations.

The Sample Gates are located in the Old Crescent area of campus. Edson Sample dedicated the gates to honor his parents. They are the site of everything from pep rallies and protests. Graduates always line up to have their pictures taken here.


The Light Totem is in front of the Eskenazi Museum of Art. It is a popular tradition for students to lay on the ground with their feet on the wall and enjoy the light show.

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. IU has won the bucket for the last four years. When IU faces Michigan State, they compete for the Old Brass Spittoon. The Hoosiers captured the spittoon for the first time in 8 years in 2016 when they defeated Michigan State in overtime.

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. First performed in 1912, “Indiana, Our Indiana” is the IU fight song, and played at every IU football and basketball game. The lyrics are over on the right for you to learn. 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. The 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 38.

Some dates to save

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.

The stories behind iconic campus landmarks By Nicole Montella

Dunn Family cemeteries Where Adjacent to Beck Chapel. 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.

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.


Beck Chapel

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 midnight. Another myth states that a couple will be together forever if they kiss at midnight on Valentine’s Day.

IU Sp Pr A ons oud th o le r ti of cs !

Beck Chapel Where Across from Ballantine Hall and the Chemistry Building, next to the Indiana Memorial Union. 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 weddings as long as a year in advance.

Herman B Wells statue Where Sitting on a bench on the west side of campus, near the Rose Well House. 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.”

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.

Homesick? You’re not alone. Here are a few easy ways to conquer homesickness when you’re feeling blue. By Holly Hays

laundry or clean your desk.

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.

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. Sometimes it’s even nicer to see their smiling faces. If you have the option, try talking to your family via FaceTime or Skype to really help feel at home. 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.

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

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? 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.


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

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.

Packing: By Tess Waldron

WHAT TO BRING Picture frames Always being able to look at a picture on your desk of your family or high school friends may be the boost you need while studying for classes and exams. Mattress pad You might find that the mattress in your new dorm is uncomfortable. Using a mattress or memory foam pad may help you get a better night’s sleep. Alarm clock The horror stories are real. Yes, many people in college use their phones as alarms and sometimes they choose to not go off the morning of a huge midterm exam. Don’t take your chances. Setting a backup alarm clock is a good idea. Laundry bag Most laundry rooms are in the basement of the dorms. Make sure you have a laundry bag or basket to transport dirty laundry.

What items should and shouldn’t find a home in your new dorm room

Fans There are usually no ceiling fans in dorm rooms, and if you’re moving into a dorm without air conditioning, it can get very hot in the early Fall and late Spring. Be prepared. Powerstrips There might not enough electrical outlets in each room, and they might be in inconvenient spots. Having an extension cord and power strip will ensure everything is plugged in and ready for your first day. First aid kit & medication Advil and Dayquil will save you when you are sick. Make sure you stock up on basic overthe-counter medications before move-in day. You will find it impossible to get out of bed to go shop for medicine when you are sick. Shower caddy & shoes Use shower shoes to stay hygenic, and bring a shower caddy to transport any toiletries you need to the shower. Desk lamp If your roommate is going to sleep and you need to stay up late to study, a desk lamp will come in handy.



WHAT NOT TO BRING Fancy Clothes Closet space is valuable, and most evenings spent with friends will not call for formal wear. A single set of nice clothes will be enough. Valuables Things can get lost with so many people living nearby. You don’t need your diamond necklace to go to finite in the morning. Candles Candles, as nice as they are, are not allowed in dorm rooms. They are a fire hazard.

Desk Chair All dorms come furnished. You will be provided a desk chair with your desk. Don’t waste your money!

The man & the legend Herman B Wells, who helped shape IU from 1938 through 2000, remains an icon on the Bloomington campus By Brian Gamache


Herman B Wells stands in front of the Lilly Library construction site in 1959. The library, which houses rare books and manuscripts, was dedicated in 1960. The library also has special collections featuring rare items like Academy Award statuettes. Between 1940 and 1960, Wells oversaw the development of the Fine Arts Plaza where the Lilly Library is located.

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 Jeric Tumang, IU alumnus and former 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. “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.

“Wells looked at the campus as a work of art. He was the architect of the modern university.” James Capshew, IU faculty member, Wells biographer.

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

Under his leadership, IU grew tremendously. He is regarded as the father of the modern IU.

humanity” and social justice, advocating for equality across campus. He insisted on integrating the University and Bloomington, going toe-to-toe with city barbers and restaurants and winning. “He created living spaces to include minorities,” Tumang said. “And he fought for equality in the residence halls.” In addition to his human legacy, Wells’ influence can be seen on a walk across campus. “Wells looked at the campus as a work of art,” Capshew said. “He was the architect of the modern university.” Wells’ influence can also be seen in the spacious design of the Tudor Room, the preservation of green spaces on campus, and particularly in the Fine Arts Plaza, Capshew said. “The Fine Arts Plaza was his baby,” Capshew said. “He built it all between 1940 and

1982, he had this vision for IU from his presidency to his chancellorship.” Wells planned ahead for the University, Capshew said. “IU was 167 acres at the start of his term, and at the end it was 1800 acres,” Capshew said. “He was looking ahead for future expansion.” Through it all, Wells remained dedicated to IU. “He felt that the University didn’t belong to him, he felt that he belonged to the University,” Capshew said. Wells remains at the University in the form of a bronze statue in the Old Crescent, and his name adorns the largest library on the IU campus. “Pretty much everything he touched he had an impact on,” Cashew said. “He built an institution and became one himself.”

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

“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.”

“My advice for incoming freshmen … Always do the right thing. It may be the more difficult choice at the time, but it will be easy to defend to yourself — and anyone else — later on.” Laury Flint, IUPD-Bloomington Chief

"One of the best features of the IU Bloomington campus is the wide array of resources that celebrate the diverse cultures of the students, faculty, and staff that comprise that university community. I advise incoming students to be open to all of the possibilities that lie ahead, as they will not only learn in the classroom, but through experiences and interactions with others. IU Bloomington is an extremely welcoming environment, where individuals of all backgrounds and heritages are supported, so I encourage new students to take advantage of the programming offered through places such as the campus cultural centers. Beginning your college education can be intimidating, but one thing you can be assured of here is that you’ll find a community where you belong."

"Soak up all that this culturally rich university has to offer. Take in a theater and musical performance. Go to the cinema and listen to a talk by a visiting notable speaker. And yes, even take in a football, basketball, soccer or baseball game. This is your university experience so make the most of it." Idie Kesner, Dean, Kelley School of Business

Dan Niersbach, President, IU Student Association (IUSA)

James Wimbush, Vice President of Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs Dean of the University Graduate School Johnson Professor for Diversity and Leadership

Doug Bauder, Director of the LGBTQ+ Culture Center

“The way to not “be just a number” at a large school like IU is to embrace all that our size has to offer. Get out there: Join a club. Go to professor’s office hours. Experience the arts. Explore Bloomington. Talk to people in the food court, your classes, your residence center. When people and places are familiar, nothing seems so big anymore and you realize that our size lets you have an experience that is uniquely yours.”

"Explore. Explore new friendships and relationships and built a network of peers who push you improve and hold you accountable. Your friends will be your greatest advocates and supporters on campus. Explore degree programs and majors. Build confidence in yourself and search for where your interests truly lie. Most students don't graduate from IU with the same majors/minors they came in expecting to pursue! Explore your surroundings. Our campus is beautiful and has resources everywhere for students. Bloomington is also an incredible place full of new experiences and adventures. Make the most of your few years here. It'll always be home to me."

"Love often and love deeply. Too often, we confuse love with our emotions. Love is indeed an action. Love is to will and to act for the good of the other. We love by asking questions, holding others accountable, forgiving, and drawing others to love. God is love and I pray you will also seek love by serving God and neighbor."

“Our world needs your developing abilities and talents as never before. Nurture them carefully during your time at this great University. Prepare yourselves to work for the betterment of others, one of life’s most important tasks and enduring satisfactions.” Nancy Stockton, Director, Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS)

"During your time on Campus, please visit the Lilly Library, which is located at 1200 E. Seventh St., just south of Showalter Fountain. The Lilly Library holds a remarkable collection of rare books, manuscripts, photographs, sheet music, mechanical puzzles, and film and television scripts, among many other collections, and it's one of the world's most notable special collections libraries. Guided tours are offered every Friday at 2 p.m. Bring your friends and family! Check out our web site at:” Joel Silver, Director, The Lilly Library, IU

"We encourage the kind of growth and community that we are all proud of at IU. The Learning Commons at Wells Library not only offers a great communal space but also 24/7 tech assistance. Useful services that students may not typically associate as being in the library are Writing Tutorial Services, IU Peer Coaching, Research Assistance, Wednesday Wellness at Wells in partnership with the Health Center, and MoneySmarts Mondays with the Office of Financial Literacy. I hope new students take advantage of these free services!” Kate M. Otto, IU Libraries’ Learning Commons Librarian

“My biggest piece of advice for incoming freshman is to get involved early! Indiana University is a huge campus and it can feel rather intimidating at first. But with a large campus comes over 800+ organizations that students can join (including Union Board!). This means that anyone can find a group that makes this university feel smaller. I also suggest getting familiar with all of the resources available on campus. Go find the Counseling and Psychological Services office on the 4th floor of the Health Center. Scope out the University Information Technology Services (UITS) area on the first floor of the Wells Library. Visit a culture center that represents your ethnicity, religious affiliation, sexual orientation/gender identity, or cultural heritage. There are hundreds of services on campus designed to provide you with a positive college experience so utilize them!” Josh Thomas, President, Union Board

“My recommendation: Embrace the adventure of what you’ve done! We are all impressed with everything you’ve gone through just to get here. You’ll need that same determination to succeed, AND the same patience. Things won’t be perfect for awhile, but you’ll get there. Welcome!” Rendy Schrader, Director, Student and Scholar Advising, Office of International Services

“I have three pieces of advice. One is to make the most of your stay at IU by taking classes and attending events that pique your curiosity and interest. Second is to make it a part of your campus life to attend the engaging activities offered at the cultural centers. Third, but not the least, you have options. If things don’t work out the way you had planned, remember there is a community of caring faculty and staff who are here for you.“

“Hello, and a hearty welcome from all of us at Media Services. We are the ground floor of the Herman B Wells Library near the Book[Market] café. Come see us to check out popular and classic films (DVDS), video games, play board and videogames, and meet with small groups in our multipurpose rooms. And it’s all free! You can also access over 160,000 online streaming documentaries and feature films: just look us up on the IU Libraries website under Media Services. We love questions — send yours to” Monique Threatt, Head, IU Libraries’ Media Services

Allen looks to build on the foundation that Wilson laid in getting IU to back-to-back bowl games. The strength of the team is its defense, led by senior linebacker Tegray Scales. Last season, Scales became the first Hoosier linebacker to All-America Honors since 1987 and led the country with 23.5 tackles for loss. In the secondary, IU is led by senior cornerback Rashard Fant, who was second team All-Big Ten last season. Fant is IU’s career

The how-to for student groups By Anicka Slachta

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. The Student Involvement Fair Every fall, student organizations flood Dunn Meadow to represent their groups and attract new members. The open field transforms into a maze of tables to navigate, 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.

Know what to do in downtown Bloomington When you need a break from homework, downtown Bloomington has plenty to offer. Here are just a few options. By Bryan Brussee

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Buskirk-Chumley Theater One of the busiest community theaters in the country, the Buskirk-Chumley plays host to film screenings, live music performances, standup comedy, dance and community events. A downtown attraction since 1922, it’s especially lively in the fall when it plays host to international musicians as part of Bloomington’s Lotus World Music and Arts Festival. The Void An all-ages DIY art space that’s a little bit out of the way, The Void is worth the trek. It books some of the best-known acts from the indie underground and the biggest bands from Bloomington’s thriving house show scene. Its Halloween cover show is especially worthwhile; Last year the local punks channeled the makeup-caked ghosts of Siouxse and the Banshees and New York City post-punks Interpol.



Orienter 2017 The Bishop A great place for reasonably priced shows, with plenty of them open to anyone 18 and up, the Bishop books an impressive variety of local and national artists. Past performers include drone metal pioneers Earth and emo darlings the Appleseed Cast. For those with deep record collections and shallow wallets, there’s no better place for live music.

RESTAURANTS King Dough Your friends will tell you Mother Bears has the best pizza in town. Others will tell you Pizza X is great or a host of other places. Pizza fiends yearning for legitimate Neapolitan pizza need look no further than King Dough. Its thincrusted and artfully-topped pizzas are among the best in the Midwest. Runcible Spoon A Bloomington institution, the Runcible Spoon is the place to go for brunch and dinner, and it pours the only on-site roasted coffee in Bloomington. The Runcible Spoon also has major indie credentials; legend has it that alt-rock godfathers R.E.M. regularly ate here while recording their fourth record at John Mellencamp’s Belmont studio. Dagwood’s Sandwiches Dagwood’s makes some of the best sandwiches you will ever eat. Located right on Indiana Avenue, it’s the perfect choice

31 for a quick lunch break. Craving a Dagwood Supreme but too far away? Delivery is also an option.

SHOPPING Vintage Phoenix While your intro to American literature course will probably have you slogging through the classics, make some time to enjoy what you read at Vintage Phoenix Comic Books. It’s a haven for students looking to supplement their college-regimented diets of Herman Melville with Grant Morrison. Cactus Flower Used and vintage clothing enthusiasts should check out Cactus Flower. Make an afternoon out of the trip with a stop by Laughing Planet for burritos and Soma for a cup of coffee, both located in the same building. I reiterate: Clothes, burritos, coffee. What more could you want? Landlocked Records Money is always tight in college, but you shouldn’t let that stop you from checking out the outstanding selection of new and used vinyl and CDs stocked at Landlocked Music. This great record store is also a hub for music fans, frequently scheduling listening parties and in-store performances in support of new records.

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.

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 learn more about the department and how to keep yourself safe. 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 from 8 p.m. to 1:45 a.m., 7 days

a week in the Fall and Spring. Call 812- 855-SAFE (855-7233) for a ride. While summer classes are in session, hours are 8 p.m. to 11:45 p.m. seven days Laury Flint 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 with the TapRide app. Students can find more info at 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 non-emergency situation.

What is IUPD? IUPD is IU’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 safe 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. Texts are the quickest way to receive the time-sensitive emergency notifications, so students should include their cell phone numbers with their IU Notify contact information. The Bloomington Police Department has a Facebook page (Bloomington Police Department) and Twitter account @BltgINPolice that students, especially those living offcampus, might find useful. Where is IUPD located and how can I contact the department? IUPD is located at 1469 E. 17th St., west of Jordan Avenue. Non-emergency calls can be placed to 812-855-4111. Call 911 in case of emergency.

Howdy Wilcox was looking for inspiration. It was 1950, and Wilcox, the founder of the IU Student Foundation, wanted to find a way to build a sense of community within the University. “He was really looking for a way to engage students within the University,� IUSF Steering Committee President Anne Broach said 67 years later. “He wanted to help them feel like they were part of something and giving back to the University.� That fall Wilcox came across an informal bike race of students living in Hickory Hall, Broach said. They had a crowd cheering them on. Wilcox, the son of a racecar driver who’d won the Indianapolis 500 in 1919, had his idea. The next year, according to the IUSF’s website, 7,000 students attended the first Little 500 race. Since then, Broach said it’s become a cultural event that regularly draws 25,000 attendees and has raised millions of dollars for scholarships. The race — the largest collegiate bike race in the country, according to the website — pits teams of four against each other in a miles-long race around Bill Armstrong Stadium’s quarter-mile track. The men’s race is 200 laps, or 50 miles long, and the women’s is 100 laps, or 25 miles. The Little 500 has grown in both scope and cultural capital over the past half-century. The 1970s and 1980s in particular saw a handful of events now considered milestones in the race’s history. In 1979, the film “Breaking Away,� which depicted a fictionalized version of the race, was released to box office success, critical acclaim and, eventually, a slew of Academy Award nominations. Steering Committee Vice President Brad Yu said the first independent team — that is, one not associated with a fraternity —

“(Wilcox) was really looking for a way to engage students within the University. He wanted to help them feel like they were part of something and giving back to the University.� Anne Broach, IUSF Steering Committee President

participated in the race in 1984. Broach said the majority of teams are still affiliated with greek life, but the balance has shifted. Of the 77 teams registered for the 2017 race, 54 were greek-affiliated, two were affiliated with residence halls and 21 were independent, she said. Two thousand seventeen marked the 30th anniversary of a particularly significant update to the race, Yu said: the women’s bike race, which will take place April 21 this year. The men’s race will be the following day. Broach said the race has gained a reputation as the center of a party weekend. “Someone who’s not involved in the student foundation would probably call it the greatest college weekend in the country,� Broach said. However, she said she hopes people also realize the race’s other significances. Its ticket sales fund student scholarships, with a total of more than $2 million raised since the race’s inception, she said, and riders spend the whole year leading up to the race preparing. “I think it’s really important to all of us in Steering Committee to let people know that the bike race is a lot more than a reason to party,� she said.

Dip your toes. If you happen to be exploring campus on a warmer day or night, make a stop at the Showalter Fountain, located in the heart of campus in the Fine Arts Plaza. The fountain was created by the Robert Laurent and the Nicci Foundry in Rome and shipped to Bloomington in 1958. Upon completion, the fountain was dedicated in 1961. So, go ahead and dip your toes in the water on a warm day.

Just steps from the entrance to the Eskenazi Art Museum is the Light Totem, an iconic sculpture that projects a dazzling display of colorful lights onto the exterior of the museum. Lie back onto the ground, kick your feet up onto the wall and watch the lights dance across the stone. The installation began as a temporary display but was kept as a permanent fixture after students were upset by its removal.

See the stars. If you’re looking for something to do on a clear Wednesday night, be sure to visit the Kirkwood Observatory. You will have the opportunity to view stars and planets through the large telescope that peers out of the domed retractable roof. Before visiting, check their Twitter, @iuastro, or their online schedule at kirkwood.shtml, as viewings may be canceled due to weather.

Bicycling on Campus Bicycles are a common form of transportation for the IU community. Bicycles operated or parked on the IU Bloomington Campus must be registered with Parking Operations and display a registration permit. For more information please contact

Meet a legend. Scattered across campus sit three bronze men important to IU. Just off Jordan Avenue you will find Hoagy Carmichael playing a note on a large piano. Throughout the year, he may be adorned with flowers or scarves. Sit with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ernie Pyle while he works on his next story just steps from the Sample Gates and Franklin Hall. Finally, shake hands for good luck with former IU President Herman B Wells, located in the Old Crescent near Owen Hall.

Bicycle SAFETY at Indiana University: Always:

Bloomington is neighbored by a handful of prime hiking locations. Located about 3.5 miles from campus, Griffy Lake Nature Preserve is a 1,200-acre nature preserve with nine trails of varying lengths and difficulties. Around 10.5 miles from campus, Lake Monroe is Indiana’s largest lake and offers five hiking trails as well as swimming areas, picnic areas and boat rentals. Lake Lemon, 16 miles from campus, has one half-mile long trail. Though short, the trail leads hiker to an overlook of the lake.

Grab a blanket and a couple sandwiches or some takeout food from Fourth Street and have yourself a picnic in Dunn Meadow along the Jordan River. Dunn Meadow, at times the stage for rallies, festivals and demonstrations, offers the perfect backdrop for an afternoon snack or lunch.

Order dessert. After you eat, stop in or place an order at Baked! Of Bloomington, a popular bakery on Third Street that sells customizable fresh cookies with pints of milk. While most bakeries require you to pick up your sugary treats, these warm cookies can be delivered straight to your door.

Best spots on-campus for a bite A graduate who kept his meal plan all four years breaks down some picks for the best meals on campus. By Josh Bertram

Tanner Vincent is a recent graduate of IU, with a degree in biology. Tanner spent three out of his four years as a student living on campus. Freshman year he lived in Forest, and resided in Willkie during Tanner his sophomore and junior Vincent years. Even after moving off campus, Tanner kept his meal plan. He’s had plenty of time to try all the food IU has to offer, and wants to help incoming students find the best food around no matter what they’re craving. We asked him what spots he would recommend. Woodland at Forest I lived at Forest my freshman year so most of my meals came from Woodland. I have to admit it’s probably the best food court on campus. They have a good variety of food here. You can get Chinese, Mexican, American, and Italian food. They even offer some classic home cooked meals like steaks with mashed potatoes and rolls. On top of that you can grab some ice cream for dessert.


Students wait in line for Caliente, one of the many food options at The Restaurants at Woodland at Forest Residence Center.

Wright Food Court Wright Food Court is probably my second favorite food court on campus, and it comes pretty close to Woodland. They have a lot to offer, like Mexican, Italian, and American food. They also have a huge salad and fruit bar which makes eating healthy easier. Personally, my favorite place to eat at Wright is Erbert’s & Gerberts. It’s brand new, and they make great sandwiches. Gresham Food Court Gresham is another great option, especially with all the improvements they’ve made the

past few years. They have Mexican, Italian, and American food, as well as stir fry. The best part of Gresham is without a doubt The Den. It has food ranging from cheeseburgers to tacos and burritos, and in my opinion is by far the best single food court restaurant. They also have The Hoosier Den for late night food, which is great. Campus Cafes The Campus Cafes are scattered all around IU. They’re super useful for to grab a quick bite, or get a snack to tide you over. They have tons of different drinks and snacks to pick from, and they also offer other things like toothpaste and deodorant if you’re in a bind. You can also get a full meal at the Campus

Cafes, it just depends on where you are. Personally, I like Willkie’s the best. They have an Erbert’s & Gerbert’s, as well as pizza. Wells Library Wells Library is another great place to eat. The food court here just went under a ton of renovations, so it’s easier than ever to find some food while you’re studying. They have coffee to keep you going during the long study sessions, as well as different foods including cheeseburgers and paninis. They also have a cool place that serves food from a new country every day. Wells is also the best place to grab dessert. You can’t beat The Chocolate Moose.

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 allnighter — 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 if you aren’t surprised when suddenly they’re only a week away. And don’t forget your days off : Labor Day is Sept. 4, fall break runs from Oct. 6-8, 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


The Best Home Away From Home

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 carless 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 a hiking trail at Griffy Lake. Just get a breath of fresh air every once in a while. You’re not just living at IU, you’re living in Bloomington. Take care of yourself. Freshman year is stressful at times, 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.

Textbooks Helping you decide where and when to buy or rent. By Alison Graham

After your bursar bill is paid and you’re settled into your dorm with furniture and snacks, there’s still one expense left: textbooks. Textbooks seem to get pricier every year and always come at an unexpected cost to many students. However, there are many ways to save money on textbooks through the various options available in Bloomington and online. Should I buy or rent? There are only a few reasons why you would need to buy a textbook. First, if you plan to use it past one semester. There are

some textbooks that can be good resources as you take classes in your major area of study. Holding onto these after one semester may be worth the larger ticket price. You could also buy the book if you plan to take large amounts of notes in the book itself. Rental agreements generally don’t allow you to heavily mark the books, so it would be better to buy. Other than keeping the book or wanting to take copious notes, you should always try to rent books to save the most money. Rental prices are usually much cheaper than the cost to buy it. Where should I buy books? In Bloomington, the most popular places


to buy books are the IU Bookstore in the Indiana Memorial Union and TIS Bookstore on Third Street across from Jordan Hall. Between these two retailers, you can usually find all of the books you need for just about any class. But before you buy from these stores, compare their prices online at websites like Chegg or Amazon. There are many online textbook vendors that buy books nationwide, which allows them to offer books at a lower rate. The only downside is waiting for them to ship to you. When should I buy books? All IU students have the ability to order every book listed on their syllabus before classes even begin. However, you may want

to wait until after the first day of class to order. Sometimes professors make last minute decisions and change the required reading or drop a book. And don’t worry about being ill-prepared on your first day. Professors usually give you ample time to order books and will post the readings online for the first week or two. You could also split the cost of a textbook between a friend by only purchasing one for the both of you. Some books are only required for homework and it would be easy to share one. The best advice for buying textbooks is to compare prices and be smart. There are many ways to save money if you only take the time to research.

Habits to avoid

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.
