Letter from the provost “From the very beginning,” wrote legendary IU President Herman B Wells, “I fell in love with Indiana University.” Many visitors to our campus have said the same. There’s something magical in the combination of limestone architecture, wooded pathways and seasonal splendor. “The whole air of the place,” Wells recalled, “nurtured individuality and creativity.” That air of inspiration comes not only from the beauty of the campus but also from nearly 200 years of commitment to academic excellence. As a leading research university devoted to preparing students for a globally connected world, the spirit of IU-Bloomington reflects a commitment to diversity, academic freedom, creative expression and international engagement. Whether you’ve come to Bloomington to visit, to study or to make it your home, I am delighted to welcome you to this inspiring

environment. This guide will help you discover ways to engage directly with the best that IU-Bloomington has to offer, whether you are interested in the arts, athletics, academics or experiencing our beloved traditions like the Little 500 bicycle race. At IU, we’re proud of our stellar performance centers. The IU Auditorium, which hosts outstanding touring productions, also houses the historic Thomas Hart Benton murals created for the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair. Opera and ballet performances at the majestic Musical Arts Center showcase the talents of the students and faculty in the world-renowned Jacobs School of Music. Additionally, IU-Bloomington’s Theatre and Drama Department, recently ranked a top-10 theater program by the Princeton Review, hosts a fascinating lineup of performances in the Lee Norvelle Theatre and Drama Center.

Other enriching opportunities exist within our cultural centers. These vital community centers, along with our GLBT Student Support Services and our Office of International Services, reflect our shared commitment to a vibrantly diverse and multicultural campus. As you explore IU-Bloomington’s centers, exhibits and landmarks, I hope you’ll also take the time to learn about the proud history of this campus. This issue of Source offers a brief biography of Wells, the visionary IU president who guided the campus to international prominence. It also recalls the influential work of Nobel Prize-winning IU-Bloomington political economist Elinor Ostrom who, together with her husband Vincent, founded our Workshop in Political Theory and Policy Analysis. Beyond the campus, I invite you to indulge in our incredible culinary, artistic and entertainment offerings,

all served with characteristic small-town friendliness. On behalf of IU-Bloomington, welcome! Lauren Robel IU-Bloomington Provost and Executive Vice President

Defining Hoosier Though IU has never settled on a mascot, gymnast Dick Albers gave fans someone to cheer for when he created the Hoosier Schoolmaster. By Ryan Schuld rschuld@indiana.edu

An Indiana Daily Student article from Feb. 19, 1952, hypothesized that “In fifty years from now, if we keep the tradition, the Hoosier Schoolmaster, like the University of Illinois Indian, will arouse spirit just by walking onto the floor and will carry a fervent significance for all students and alumni of IU.” That tradition was started by Dick Albers. Of the students asked whether or not they knew who Richard Albershardt — Dick Albers — was, many responded, “no.” Everybody except one. “The gymnastics guy?” freshman Tom Olsen said. He knew nothing else about Albers. Albers was inducted into the IU Athletics Hall of Fame in 1994 with fellow Hoosiers William Armstrong, football player Brad Bomba, diving coach Hobie Billingsley and IU tennis player Heather Crowe, according to the IU Athletics website. The website also lists his athletic awards. He was a three-time letterman in gymnastics, a two-time Big Ten champion on the trampoline in 1952 and 1956 and the only IU gymnast to be an individual champion in the trampoline in 1956. Albers was also a two-time recipient of the L.G. Balfour Award and a two-time North-South Champion on the trampoline. After his time at IU, Albers began performing internationally under the nickname Dick Albers, instead of his own name, Richard Albershardt. Albers performed with many groups and TV shows, according to a video produced by Albie Films for the Indiana Gymnastics Hall of Fame. These groups include the Harlem Globetrotters, Bob Hope’s Christmas Shows, performing in front of the U.S. Military, The Ed Sullivan Show and more. In 2004, AuthorHouse

published Albers’ autobiography. Titled “Someday You’re Not Coming Down,” this book touches on his highs and lows both as a college student and a professional. So what did Albers do to solidify his legacy here at IU? Throughout his sophomore year at IU, he dressed as an old man during games using a wig and old-timer glasses. He would then throw the glasses off in front

of the crowd and perform a gymnastics routine. This was Albers’ way of getting the IU students and other attendees fired up for the game at hand. In his time at IU, Albers was considered the University’s mascot, the “Hoosier Schoolmaster.” Though the Hoosier Schoolmaster tradition did not stick with the University, there are still several ways Hoosiers celebrate their

school during timeouts. IU’s current traditions include candy-striped pants worn by the men’s basketball team, the IU pep band and the cheerleaders’ timeout performance during every IU home basketball game . Bleacher Report ranked the Indiana band as the No. 4 band in college basketball. The IU pep band and its involvement in the popular

under-eight minute timeout helps create an electric atmosphere in Assembly Hall. “Seventeen thousand Hoosiers all standing and joining in on the tradition, and then all at once at the end everyone in the hall shouts ‘IU,’” freshman Alex Stauth said. “If that doesn’t give you goosebumps and pride to be an IU Hoosier, I don’t know what will.”

The Jordan River often overflows and floods small sections of campus after strong downpours.

Jordan River: the unsung lifeblood of IU By Charlie Scudder specials@idsnews.com

It ribbons through wooded hollows and dense wetlands, through open meadows and under footbridges that ferry students to towering academic halls. People have been calling it the Mighty Jordan since at least the 1890s, but it was officially

christened Spanker’s Branch until 1994. In 1919, a doomed bill was introduced in the Indiana statehouse to dredge the Jordan River, so it could be “made navigable for river, lake, and ocean steamers.” Theodore Rose, namesake of IU’s Rose Well House, proposed to dam the river to create a Jordan Lake in the 1920s.

Biology classes use it as an outdoor lab. Sunbathing women sit on the limestone rocks lining the banks to catch the first rays of spring. Art students lean against trees to sketch the Jordan’s gentle curves. “Per cubic inch of water, probably more love has been made on the banks of the Jordan than any other stream in the world,” columnist Cliff

Robinson said in the Indiana Daily Student in 1978. *

It’s a dark night on a fall evening in Bloomington. In the river, a muskrat glides through the water. A short way upstream, a skunk forages around the grassy bank. Nocturnal minnows dart under bridges in the cool water.

The Mighty Jordan, celebrated by students and faculty, is a living ecosystem. The river is home to minnows and small bullhead fish, frogs and turtles, insects such as beetles and mayflies and mosquitos and water striders. It’s a water source for deer, skunks, possums, muskrats, raccoons and other land-dwellers. For decades, the water quality of the river has been maintained to keep the river’s ecosystem healthy and clean. In the early 1970s, the IU Board of Trustees ordered a report on the quality of the water. “Such incidents of alleged pollution of the Jordan River can never be eliminated as long as the Jordan River remains the only storm sewer traversing on campus, ” one 1972 report read. “So, at some time, the ecologists must face reality.” Mike Girvin, manager of the Campus Division, has another philosophy. He tries to keep the river as clean as possible. Drainage pipes may look unsightly, he says, but they carry clean water condensation from the chiller units on surrounding buildings. “It’s a very environmental campus,” Girvin said. “We’re very sensitive to impacts to the stream.” *

Thunder claps before a late summer storm. Thick drops of water plop in the shallow water, spreading concentric rings across

the surface. In the shadow of Franklin Hall, small stacks of rock and stone dot the low river bed. The sculptures, crafted by local designer Patrick Siney, have been here only a few weeks but are already a playground for small fish and the butterflies dancing around the larger stones. “This is gone by tomorrow,” Siney said from the bank above. “It will all be completely washed away. You get one sixteenth of an inch, this floods up a foot and a half.” To get out of the surprise storm, Siney moves to a dry patch under a grove of cypress trees at the edge of Dunn Meadow on the bank of the Jordan. It is one of his favorite spots on the river. Within a half-hour, the river becomes a dark brown rage of water and surf, engulfing the sculptures and flushing them into the dark culvert beneath the city. When it rains in Bloomington, it all pours through the Jordan. Thick soil means water takes the path of least resistance through campus, straight down the Jordan River. When it floods, intrepid students sometimes take to the river, tempting the fast-moving water, churning over large rocks and dodging under low bridges. It’s a dangerous stunt—just ask John Howard. As a student, Howard was swept under the Indiana Avenue bridge in 1994 while playing in the river during a rainstorm. It took him 18 minutes to travel the three-quarter mile

Rock sculptures line the Jordan River near Franklin Hall. In 2013, Patrick Siney lined the river with these rock sculptures as an independent art project after becoming inspired by something similar he saw in Colorado. Other Bloomington residents and students also contributed to the sculpture building.

culvert. He tumbled down the tunnel, at parts only 30 inches tall. He was sucked underwater when the underground culvert took a sharp turn, but finally came out at the end of the pipeline. “He was very lucky,” Girvin said. “It can be very dangerous.” As more water falls from the

sky in an Indiana thunderstorm, the river gets stronger and faster, breaking its banks and flooding parts of campus. Its powerful current rips through hollows and wetlands, through meadows and under footbridges that ferry students to towering academic halls.

Dunn Meadow. By Jake New

specials@idsnews.com

In 1962, the IU Board of Trustees designated Dunn Meadow as the only space on campus for spontaneous free speech. The trustees might have tried to do students a favor by giving them a space to express themselves, but by designating free speech, they also limited it. This timeline shows how different groups and cultures have used the meadow from 1960 to the present, each expressing their own wishes and remembrances in a single, historical space.

Shantytown arrives Two dozen students armed with splintered boards, cardboard boxes and cans of spray paint constructed a shantytown to send a message to University officials about segregation in South Africa. At the time, students believed IU was investing in companies that supported the apartheid. Another shantytown was organized in 1988, this time as an anti-rape center.

Campus directors showcase art at IU By Sanya Ali siali@indiana.edu

Experimental film, cultural explorations and art exhibits are but a few of the activities visitors have access to during their time at IU. The directors and administrators of just a few of the art hubs on campus offer several of their suggestions for anyone interested in an artistic experience. TIANTIAN ZHANG | IDS

IU Art Museum 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 iub.edu/~iuam.

The IU Art Museum is one of the many places on campus for visitors to have an artistic experience.

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 indiana.edu/~mathers. The Kinsey Institute Catherine Johnson-Roehr, 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 kinseyinstitute.org. Grunwald Gallery of Art Director Elizabeth Stirrat takes pride in the work of IU’s Masters 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 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 indiana.edu/~grunwald. IU Cinema Director Jon Vickers encouraged seeing a film at the cinema, which has seen a good deal of praise from some notable visitors over 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. Vickers suggested attending a film showing regardless if it’s a well-known film. “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 cinema.indiana.edu. visit cinema.indiana.edu.

Institute provides insight into intimacy By Hannah Alani halani@indiana.edu

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. The spring 2015 exhibits include “Hold that Pose,” 19th century erotic photography, and “Secret Impressions,” erotic prints and paintings. In addition to her class at Kinsey, the art is another reason for 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, 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.” The current exhibit even includes 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. Beckman enjoyed seeing the fall semester’s exhibit, which displayed art that showed the relationship between sex and food. “There’s so much amazing art at the Kinsey Institute that you won’t get to see anywhere else,” Beckman said. “It’s a great opportunity to see the new shows and to

The constant flow of art provides visitors with something new to see every time they visit the Kinsey Institute.

see as much of it as possible.” Kinsey does not yet have a name for its Fall 2015 show, but 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 sexu-

ality 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 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 kinseyinstitute.org.

Indiana University Chancellor Herman B Wells poses in his Owen Hall office on the Bloomington campus April 10, 1988. Wells, also a former president of the University, died March 18, 2000, of heart complications. He was 97.

The life and legacy of Herman B Wells By Brian Gamache bgamache@indiana.edu

Herman B Wells was the president of IU for 25 years, from 1938 until 1962, and grew 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. “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 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.”

Tudor Room brings fine dining to campus By Rachel Goodman rachgood@indiana.edu

Room 169 in the Indiana Memorial Union holds an exquisite space with maroon carpeting, chandeliers and antique tables that catch the eye. The Tudor Room’s furniture and fixtures, such as the wooden banister pole now made to use as a side table, capture and hold any visitor’s attention. It has an old-age British feel — a bit like Hogwarts, but with a modern twist. As students, faculty and guests enter, they will first notice the table that was bought and donated to the room by late University Chancellor Herman B Wells. Wells had an interest in antiques and planned to have the Tudor Room made in a medievallike British design, Rob Meyer, assistant director for IMU activities and events, said. Wells wanted a place where University students could learn manners but also where adults and faculty could enjoy themselves. Meyer said the blueprint was made in 1957, when Wells decided on a name for the space. He chose the Tudor Room because of his love for Tudor architectural design. In 1959, the student Union was remodeled. An east side was added containing The Georgian Room, the hotel and the Tudor Room. The Tudor Room was built with high ceilings and rich oak panels to provide an open space, according to documents at the IU Archive. Natural light flows in from the tall windows. The red chairs are an exact reproduction of 17th and 18th century pieces. Completed in 1964, the Coronation Room takes its name from the Coronation Throne in Westminster Abbey. A large, wall-sized painting of a medieval coronation decorates the room, according to documents from the IU Archive. Meyer said Wells wanted all of the flags from different colleges of IU represented in the room. Later, in 1983, the design was revised. The college flags of the University were represented in the glass windows, as seen today. Tapestries were

added later. The Tudor Room’s ambiance is not its only allure for visitors— food is also served daily. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. weekdays, and a special brunch is served from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sundays. Special events can also be celebrated at the Tudor Room, such as holiday meals. Meyer said that unlike back

in the day when the Tudor Room had a menu to order from, today selections are served only by buffet. Salad, hot vegetables, breads and desserts are served on the weekdays. Carved meats and omelets are added to the list to be served at brunch Sundays. “The whole environment provides for a great way to have fine dining,” Meyer said. Meyer said he is interested in

the Union’s past and works a lot with the history of the building today. Everyone can enjoy this tasteful space, and students can receive a discount from 1 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. weekdays. Reservations are encouraged but not required. Call the Tudor Room at 812-855-9866 or email TudorRm@indiana.edu for more information.

Navigating the Indiana Memorial Union By Jaclyn Lansbury specials@idsnews.com

One of the largest student unions in the world, the Indiana Memorial Union has much to offer visitors. Here are a few highlights. For more information, visit imu.indiana.edu. LOBBY LEVEL Dunn Meadow Cafe Dunn Meadow Cafe is a healthy option for dining. Formerly named Kiva, the cafe reopened in February 2010, Operations Manager Holly Parient said. The menu lists an array of fresh sandwiches, such as the Chicken Caprese Ciabatta and the Asparagus and Provolone Panini. The cafe also offers a variety of flat bread pizzas, wraps, desserts and a soup and salad bar. Sycamore Corner Store The Sycamore Corner Store is a convenient last-minute shop for hotel guests, especially since it’s located next to the main desk in

the lobby. Meagan Need, service manager at the front desk in the center lobby, said she occasionally goes there for a candy bar and milk, but the store is targeted toward guests. It offers a variety of snacks, magazines and toiletries. MEZZANINE Sugar & Spice Pastry chef Michael Craig said Sugar & Spice is the only store of its kind in the country. “We have our traditions, like the chocolate nobakes and Special K chewies,” Craig said. “We’re trying to re-imagine and innovate what Sugar & Spice is a little bit, but also keep the classics so that we’re not drastically changing.” The shop also offers organic coffee. And guests can place cake orders for special occasions. Mail order requests for Sugar & Spice treats come from as far away as California. Back Alley Bowling Back Alley Bowling offers

more than what its title implies, operating a billiards and arcade room, former manager John Bower said. Back Alley does not serve food or alcohol. But the bowling alley attracts students and others with its cheap rates, Bower said. On weekdays, rates for the general public are $2.75 for a bowling game and $2.50 for shoe rental. On Friday and Saturday, it’s $3 for a game and $2.50 for shoe rental.

FIRST FLOOR Starbucks If you’re several yards away from the IMU, you’ll probably see many pedestrians — especially students — carrying a Starbucks coffee. While a Starbucks is located on Indiana Avenue, which is not far from the IMU, the Starbucks on the first floor is a popular spot for studying and catching up with friends. The large sitting area, also known as the IMU Gallery for its

Alumni Hall Alumni Hall, which is more formal than the Whittenberger Auditorium, is 5,000 square feet and the largest and most-used meeting hall in the IMU, former Event Manager and Sales Assistant Sarah Cady said. Whenever events in Alumni Hall exceed the room’s capacity, the Solarium, which is adjacent to the Hall, often helps with overflow. The space is also home to an enormous C.B. Fisk pipe organ.

Whittenberger Auditorium The Whittenberger Auditorium is known for its free weekly film series on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, which is organized by Union Board. Former Manager and Sales Assistant Sarah Cady said the Auditorium, which was named after the first president of the University’s first student union, John Whittenberger, can seat up to 400 people.

IU bucket list Just here for a few days? IDS staff members pick their must-see places and attractions on campus. Agnes Wells quadrangle “I always take visitors to the quad that the Kinsey Institute is on. It's, in my opinion, the prettiest quad on campus. All the buildings are so beautiful.” Anna Hyzy, design chief The Lilly Library ”The Lilly Library is my favorite way to spend time on campus. You can flip through Michael Uslan’s comic book collection, hold John Ford’s 1941 Oscar and read from Ernie Pyle’s personal letters or weathered book manuscripts. It’s a neat way to spend an afternoon.” Holly Hays, general assignments and special publications editor

The Arboretum “The Arboretum is my favorite place on campus not because of how it looks during the day, with its pretty greenery and sloping pathways, but because of how it looks at night. And even more than that, how it feels at night. There have been multiple times when I have chosen to walk through the Arboretum after sunset even if it is not the fastest route to my destination because I love the calming vibe that it gives me. It's the moments of serene solitude that really show me why I love IU's campus, and, oftentimes, the place that offers that serene atmosphere is the Arboretum. “ Nicole Krasean, photo editor

“Sadly, the Arboretum has been under construction for most of this year. Regardless, I used to have to walk through it every single day as a freshman and I honestly looked forward to the 10 minute walk to class because I got to see the beautiful arboretum. It is simply a cool, peaceful area to spend time in. When it is nicer, I plan on hanging out in there and studying. “ Brody Miller, sports editor Memorial Stadium “When you stop by Assembly Hall — an obligatory stop for any future Hoosier — be sure to gander at its neighbor to the left, Memorial Stadium. IU football beat Purdue in its final

game of the season, so the signature (and very large) IU victory flag will be flying high in the South End Zone until the 2015 season kickoff.” Tori Ziege, copy chief “OK, so, Assembly Hall gets all the acclaim and has all the history, but Memorial Stadium is a personal treasure of mine. It is an old school college football stadium that is possibly too nice for the IU football program it acts as home to. It is a great representation of IU, as it is made of beautiful limestone. I truly enjoyed watching football games from the press box of Memorial Stadium. “ Brody Miller, sports editor

IU culture centers “I would definitely not want to miss all of IU's culture centers.

It doesn't matter if you identify with the center's culture, they are all friendly and open to all.” Suzanne Grossman, campus editor indiana Memorial Union “The IMU is honestly my favorite part about this campus. It is gorgeous, and the fact that I get to walk by it every day makes me so fortunate. Whether it is on a fall night or in the morning after a large snowfall, the Union is always beautiful. It also happens to be where I go to get coffee, which is a nice bonus.” Brody Miller, sports editor

Wall of LIGHT After being a campus staple for years, Light Totem remains a student hangout

IU students Austin Whittington and Destiny Hibbs lay with their feet against the wall of the IU Art Museum. It was Whittington’s first time taking in the totem, while Hibbs said s By Evan Hoopfer ehoopfer@indiana.edu | @EvanHoopfer

A young girl was on a walk with her dad and saw something going on outside the IU Art Museum. It was October 2007 and Robert Shakespeare — the creator of the light totem that illuminates the 70-foot wall of the IU Art Museum — was installing the structure. The big unveiling of light totem was in a few days. The young girl dragged her dad across the street and asked Shakespeare what he was

doing. Shakespeare explained, and then he turned on the totem. Different colors of light danced on the wall, and the girl was mesmerized. “Daddy,” she said, “It’s magic.” The light totem was made in celebration of the IU Art Museum’s 25-year anniversary. After everything was done, it cost between $125,000 and $130,000 to put up. Many of those funds came from donations, Shakespeare said. When it was installed 7 1/2 years ago, it was not supposed

to be a permanent structure. It was supposed be taken down after two or three months. But the light totem got so much attention that nobody could take it down. “Foot traffic increased,” Shakespeare said. “The analogy I use is a bonfire. If you build a big bonfire, people are going to be attracted to it.” And then, a tradition began. People sit at the base of the wall and put their feet up against it. It became part of IU students’ bucket list. Shakespeare doesn’t know how the tradition started.

He would visit his totem and ask people, “Why are you putting your feet up on the wall? What are you seeing?” “That’s my mom’s key lime pie coming down the wall,” one young woman told him, watching the green lights dance across the concrete. After a while, he understood what they were seeing. Light Totem has six “songs,” as Shakespeare puts it. Each song uses different colors. For example, the IU fight song has red and white lights that bounce off the wall rapidly. During a couple

Hibbs said she has put her feet up against the wall a couple of times.

other songs, a color pours down the wall and creates an optical illusion. Everybody experiences the totem differently. Collin English and Jessica Huseman sat on the ground with their feet on the wall. This wasn’t their first time experiencing the totem. “To me, it’s tradition,” English said. Both English and Huseman described the experience like a sidewalk. If you imagine you’re looking ahead, it’s like the wall of the Art Museum is the ground, illuminated by dozens of colors.

“It’s hard to imagine, but you have to believe,” Huseman said with a laugh. Benedict Jones experiences Light Totem in a different way. Jones is in a wheelchair, so he can’t put his feet up against the wall. Instead, he stands by the wall and looks directly at the totem, with his eyes closed. The colors wash over his closed eyes, and when the colors start flashing rapidly he gets the sensation he’s riding a roller coaster. “It’s extremely emotive,” Jones said. “It causes you to feel really intense sensations.”

In April 2013 , Light Totem came down. Water had gotten inside the structure, froze, then expanded. That compromised the totem’s structural integrity. During the 15 months the totem was down, the museum and Shakespeare got constantly peppered with questions. “What happened to it?” “Why is it gone?” “When is it coming back?” Light Totem was re-installed June 21, 2014. To anyone not familiar with light fixtures, Shakespeare said, it looks no different than before. The colors still

bounce off the wall, and people still put their feet up against it. Shakespeare has been in theater for 40 years. How he defines success for a piece of art is the effect it has on people who experience it. The same is true for Light Totem. “If you have people inspired to propose in front of it, or to have it become a very special, magical place — I won,” Shakespeare said. “And it’s not an arrogant, ‘I won,’ it just makes me feel good. All the effort that went into it, it makes it all worthwhile.”

Riders of Kappa Alpha Theta celebrate after receiving the trophy for their first place finish on April 25, 2014 at Bill Armstrong Stadium.

So much more than a bike race By Courtney Robb crobb@indiana.edu

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 Wilcox 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 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 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.

Mother Bear’s Pizza Mother Bear’s pizza has been synonymous with awards. It has won the best Pizza in Bloomington ten years in a row, Best Local Restaurant in Bloomington twice, Best Pizza in Indiana according to USA Today and one of America’s Top Nine Pizzerias according to People Magazine. Ray McConn, an IU graduate, has prided himself on keeping Mother Bear’s close to the heart of both the Bloomington and Indiana University communities. It has been serving the students and the public since 1970. Some of the reasons why Mother Bear’s is famous are its specials and specialty pizzas. The most popular, especially among students, is the “Munchie Madness.” This special includes pizza, breadsticks or cheese bread, two home-made brownies and a two liter bottle of soda. The most famous specialty pizza is the “Divine Swine.” This meat lover’s fantasy has every pizza topping imaginable; pepperoni, sausage, ham and bacon. If you are feeling more on the healthy side, try the house salad that is unique for its Goldfish cracker topping instead of croutons. The restaurant is always busy and packed with patrons, but you are guaranteed that your long wait will be rewarded.

School of Informatics and Computing At the School of Informatics and Computing, innovation starts with our very existence. Our rare combination of programs—including informatics, computer science, library science, and information science—makes our school one of the largest, broadest, and most accomplished of its kind. Our extensive programs are united by a focus on information and technology. These rapidly evolving fields demand new ideas and new discoveries — the types of innovations our faculty develop and the kinds of problems our students learn to solve. Since its creation in 2000, the School has grown more like a tech startup than a traditional academic unit. In the past seven years, undergraduate enrollments and research funding have more than tripled and graduate enrollments have doubled. A major contributor to this growth in numbers has been growth in two other regards – breadth and stature. The School is one of the broadest information and computing units in the nation, spanning all the way from the technical foundations of computing and information, to a broad array of applications in health, science, media, and many other areas, to human and societal issues and applications. Increasingly, this breadth matches the needs of employers who have evolving roles for technical talent.

Our Students Get

GREAT JOBS Technology jobs are in demand and our graduates have what it takes to get them.

A robust job market is fueling the School’s growth. When our students graduate, they get great jobs. In 2014, 99% of our graduating master’s and Ph.D. students and 94% of our graduates with bachelor’s degrees secured employment with six months of graduation, making an average of $82,300 (graduate) and $58,600 (undergraduate). See our hiring report for more details. Visit soic.indiana.edu to learn more about our school.

Bloomington Hardware Bloomington Hardware has been a part of Bloomington since the late 1880’s. It has been owned and operated by five generations of the Temple family. The current owner, Vickie Temple Davison, and her late husband John Temple moved from their downtown location on the southside of the square to the current location on College Mall Road in the 1980’s. Their daughter Kristi was a baby then. Kristi now brings her children to work with her, so there are three generations “working” under the Bloomington Hardware roof. The current location has great parking; easy access by car, bike, bus, foot or skateboard! It is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. The website www.bloomingtonhardware.com gives customers access to the True Value warehouse and offers FREE shipping to the store. Of course the folks in the bricks and mortar location can help too! We order all kinds of unique “widgets”, specialty light switches and even water heaters! The very nature of a hardware store is to help people, whether a novice or a professional, to be successful on any and all of their projects. Just like the old days downtown, we still climb up ladders or dig around in little boxes to find a part needed or a string of Christmas lights to decorate a dorm room or deck.

of furniture. Whether a log cabin, an apartment, a mobile home, a bungalow restoration or vacation retreat ... people want that “special” paint color (inside and outside) to show off their personality. Color is powerful! Paint is an inexpensive way to get a BIG change. We love being a part of someone making their interior (and exterior) space their own. Of course, that feeling is true when you need help with a leaky toilet or stopping bugs in the kitchen or killing those weeds in the lawn ... we just love helping people be successful. People garden, recycle and repair because of the economy, their health and their conscience. We believe it’s the right choice to do this as well. We even have how-to links on our Facebook page. We carry a wide variety of tools, plumbing repair parts, energy efficient light bulbs, shower heads, organic soils, natural fertilizers and non-chemical pesticides, because we care about the environment too. We are proud to be your local hometown hardware store with competitive prices and friendly, knowledgeable employees. Thanks for choosing us and making Bloomington Hardware “your” hardware store.

Repair, reuse, repurpose, reduce and recycle is what all those little gadgets and gizmos are for! It was nice to be known for solving problems then; it’s even better to have that same reputation in this day and age. Our Paint Department is wonderful ... whether you are the contractor painting an entire complex or if you are an art student ~ we can help you. We mix the most beautiful colors ... turquoises, teals, mosses, taupes and corals for a summery or southwest feel on your kitchen or bedroom walls or for a vibrant statement piece
