Letter from Provost Lauren Robel Welcome to IU-Bloomington! Whether you are in town for a campus visit, a sporting event, a conference or for one of the many musical, dance, comedy and theatrical arts events and festivals for which IU and the City of Bloomington are known, I hope you’ll take the time to explore our diverse campus. The Best Colleges recently named IU among 2016’s top 15 most beautiful college campuses in the United States. You’ll understand why after a stroll through our tree-lined campus, which is bursting with flowers at every turn and sprinkled with majestic buildings crafted from limestone from quarries in Bloomington and the surrounding region. You’ll find plenty of open walking paths and green spaces around campus, such as the IU Arboretum next to the historic Herman B Wells Library and the new Global and International Studies Building, or Dunn’s Woods, next to the brand new Media School in Franklin Hall,

just through the iconic Sample Gates at the intersection of Kirkwood and Indiana avenues. While you’re here, take a look at the many beautiful pieces of public art throughout campus. Take a selfie with bronze sculptures of important figures in IU-Bloomington’s history, starting with famed World War II journalist Ernie Pyle outside Franklin Hall. Next along the path is the statue of former IU president and chancellor Herman B Wells outside of Maxwell Hall, followed by Hoosier singer-songwriter Hoagy Carmichael, whose bronze form sits at his piano outside our renowned IU Cinema. Also look for a 10,000-pound limestone brain sculpture in front of our Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, a colorful Light Totem in front of the Sidney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art and the iconic sculpture of Venus in Showalter Fountain in front of the IU Auditorium. I also invite you to enjoy our many cultural centers, muse-

ums and performance spaces. Each year the IU Auditorium brings world-famous performers and Broadway productions to Bloomington. The IU Cinema is one of the Midwest’s premier venues for independent films and draws filmmakers and actors such as Glenn Close, Jonathan Banks and Ava DuVernay for public lectures and screenings. The Jacobs School of Music and the Department of Theatre, Drama and Contemporary Dance present student-run performances year-round, including the collaborative Hammer & Nail

concert each spring. The Eskenazi Museum’s collection rivals that of any other public university in the country, and the Mathers Museum of World Cultures is one of the world’s leading anthropological museums. We are so proud of our beautiful campus and our place in the vibrant, diverse Bloomington community. For nearly 200 years, IU has called Bloomington home, and we hope you feel at home during your time here. Lauren Robel, Provost and Executive Vice President

Carefully planted by University groundskeepers, tulips bloom in early spring to welcome visitors to campus. The Sample Gates stand on the east end of Kirkwood Avenue as the symbolic entrance to IU.

IU’s Sample Gates have welcomed students and visitors to campus since the 1980s By Dylan Gray | @dylanthegray

The Sample Gates have been a proud tradition at IU. Its Gothic arches overlook Kirkwood Avenue, a hub where students can dine, shop and explore one of the connecting lines to Bloomington’s downtown area. Located between Franklin and Bryan halls, the gates welcome visitors and students inside IU’s campus. After controversy in the 1960s, resulting in one alumnus withdrawing his initial funding, the gate’s construction was eventually approved in the 1980s, funded by University Director of Financial Aid and Scholarships Edson Sample in honor of his parents. Before this, Kirkwood Avenue ran into campus and connected with the access road that runs between the Student Building, Maxwell Hall and the IMU. The modern plans were drawn up by Eggers & Higgins in 1961 for the construction of a “Fifth Street Gateway.” In the end, the gateway was a mix of old and new, resulting from “a broad change in attitude toward the creation of structures in the romantic styles in use a few decades ago,” the architects said.

“The Sample Gates are a reminder of walks to class, my first internship, adventures on Kirkwood and all of the friendships that Indiana University gave me. I can’t help but smile when I see them.” Nicole Makris, 2012 IU Graduate IU ARCHIVES

Now, the gates mark the entrance to historic campus of IU known as the Old Crescent. These are the earliest foundations of the campus with Owen and Wylie halls being among the first buildings constructed by 1884. From freshman orientation to the cap and gowns, the Sample Gates is always a hot spot for family portraits and selfies alike. Carved from Indiana limestone, incoming freshmen are always challenged to complete the IU Bucket List, one of which is to take a picture at the historic gates. Amanda Kloss is a junior at IU majoring in elementary education and has been an IU fan since she was born. She started going to football games at the age of 4 with her dad, who has bought

seasons almost every year since his graduation from IU. Kloss said the Sample Gates are a symbol of the possibilities and joy of the campus. “I first saw the Sample Gates when my father gave me tours of the campus growing up,” she said. “As a kid, they were just the place where the homecoming parade ended, but as a student they are something different. I think the gates are a beautiful symbol not only of our school, but of great possibility.” To Nicole Makris, a 2012 graduate working at the law firm Lamb, Makris & Associates, the Sample Gates remind her of the time she spent at the University. With her Bloomington branch located on Sixth Street, the Sam-

ple Gates are close reminder of how far she’s come. “The Sample Gates are a reminder of walks to class, my first internship, adventures on Kirkwood and all of the friendships that Indiana University gave me,” Makris said. “I can’t help but smile when I see them.” The Sample Gates continue to create memories and traditions that live with many people. The romantic arches are a reminder of all the campus has to offer. “When I walk by the gates, I know that I am in the right place getting a meaningful education, an education that will lead me to my most significant dreams,” Kloss said. “They give me such a powerful sense of school pride. The gates are home.”

What our students say about the Union By Sarah Gradner


IMU Bowling and Billiards is open to students, faculty and the Bloomington community every day from the afternoon through evening. The Back Alley features 12 bowling lanes, four gaming stations, nine billiards tables and one American snooker table.

Breaking down the IMU By Allen Laman | @allen_laman

The limestone titan stretches from North Park Avenue to North Forest Avenue on Seventh Street, dwarfing and practically consuming Ernie Pyle Hall. Its website puts the size at a staggering 500,000 square feet. So, yeah, the Indiana Memorial Union is really, really big. Its construction began in 1931 after a decade of fundraising and planning, and the building officially opened a year later. At that spring’s commencement ceremony it was dedicated to IU’s sons and daughters who served in the country’s wars. Now, the building features a food court, a plethora of conference rooms, the Biddle Hotel, a three-level bookstore and much, much more. Here’s a glimpse at five of the building’s hotspots.

ous shop. You can also get computer hardware and software, tech accessories and loads of IU apparel from the Varsity Shop — a store inside a store. While you’re there you can pick up a must-have for any Hoosier fan: a pair of authentic candy stripe pants. Bowling & Billiards Whether you need a study break or something to distract

you from that test you just bombed, the Union’s game corner is a great place to unwind. The building houses a 12-lane bowling alley and a nine-table pool hall with a 10th for snooker, as well as three pinball machines. It also has a gaming lounge with four televisions that will be equipped with Xbox One consoles. SEE IMU, PAGE 11

The Indiana Memorial Union has always been an essential part of campus life, said Cheryl Crouch, assistant director of marketing for the IMU. The Union was founded in 1909 by student John Whittenberger, member of the class of 1911. The building that now houses the Union was finished in 1932. “I’m an IU grad and now I’ve been working here for 26 years,” Crouch said. “IU and the Union are in my blood now.” Some of the most popular destinations for students are the Sugar and Spice bakery, the Starbucks in the IMU Gallery, the bowling alley and the student computing lab, Crouch said. “The Union is just a really good pit stop,” senior Steve Zahariadis said. “I can come in here to eat, I can come in here to study. If you don’t know where to go for an hour or two, there’s usually something you can do in the Union.” The IMU also sponsors free events for students. The Union Board organizes free movie showings in the Whittenberger Auditorium. Its movie screenings are the longest-running film series in the country. “The Union events are a great way to meet some new people and have fun,” Union Board member Dayton Livingston said. “For me, it’s where I met a lot of the people who are my close friends now. It’s a place you can consider part of your home.” The Circle Café on the ground floor of the Union was SEE VOICES, PAGE 11

you’re ready for dessert. Its recipes have been enjoyed on campus for more than 50 years. If you’re looking for something with a local touch, Sugar and Spice sells iced sugar cookies that are decorated with the IU trident, as well as gingerbread basketball players suited up with iced candy-stripe pants and uniforms. Popcorn and cupcakes are also sold in the shop, and specialty cakes are available for order. Whittenberger Auditorium Films are free for students with IDs in this 404-seat auditorium. Its theater-style seating and large screen make it a great place to watch flicks like “Captain America,” but be on the lookout for new films and events coming this fall. Screenings start at 8 p.m. and concessions are sold from 7:45 to 11:15 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Non-student tickets cost $2.

The room is dedicated to IU graduates who served in the armed forces, and holds a book of their names dating back to the War of 1812. The atmosphere of the Union creates an attractive space for students beyond its stores and events, Crouch said. “For me, and I think for a lot of other graduates, the Union brings back a lot of great memories,” Crouch said. “And students here now are in the process of making them. It can be a great place for experiences outside the classroom.”



Students work in the IMU and enjoy the common spaces, bookstore and lounges. For more information about the IMU, visit

And it’s a nice spot for our hotel guests to get breakfast if they’ve got an early morning.” The IMU’s new executive director, Hank Walter, took office in July 2015 and is working on developing other new spaces and events for the Union, Crouch said. “We want to focus on making the Union the ‘living room’ of campus,” Livingston said. “The union, by definition, is meant to be a place of unity, so we try to

Your guide to IU museums The Sydney and Lois Eskenazi Museum of Art is home to many exhibits and special events throughout the year. By Yulin Yu | @yulinyumedia

The Fine Arts Plaza With a flat topography, the Fine Arts Plaza was planned to be symmetrical, including the buildings, fountains and plants. The three buildings create edges of a square going around the circular Showalter Fountain. Meanwhile, four old trees are located at four corners of the fountain zone. This creates a smaller square inside the building square and their edges are parallel to each other. Eskenazi Museum of Art Anyone can easily see the Eskenazi Museum of Art is not in a shape of normal cuboid, like most of the other buildings. Instead, the structure of the Eskenazi Museum of Art is a combination of two triangular pyramids. This interesting pyramid is contributed by a modernist architect, I.M. Pei. Pei is a world-renowned architect known for designing the Louvre Pyramid, the JFK Library and the National Gallery of Art. People described Pei’s design style as modernist with cubist themes, which means he is good at turning traditional architectural elements into simple geometric patterns.

“An individual building, the style in which it is going to be designed and built, is not that important,” Pei said. “The important thing, really, is the community. How does it affect life?” This art museum is located on East Seventh Street. This street, coupling with the expansion of museum’s building, plays the role of a visual cue to lead viewers to the Fine Arts Plaza. The Eskenazi Museum of Art’s collection is of an international scale and guides are available to provide tours for visitors to engage with the culture behind the art. The museum received a donation from Sidney and Lois Eskenazi in May and the museum will use this money to expand its space into the old Fine Arts Library, which will move to Wells Library. Showalter Fountain As a center, connection and landmark of the Fine Arts Plaza, the Showalter Fountain dolphins are both global and local. The centerpiece of Showalter Fountain was designed by Robert Laurent, who was a professor of fine arts at IU. His design is a rendition of the myth of the Birth of Venus. The Birth of Venus symbolizes the meaning of beauty and

connects four limestone buildings which represent music, studio art, drama, culture and art. The concept of beauty summarizes the core of various art forms. This bronze sculpture also has a sense of exoticism. Since Laurent left IU for vacation in 1954, the design and construction of this sculpture was finished in Rome. This greatly influenced the art. Laurent fell in love with the lost wax process, a traditional Italian technique of bronze casting. Thus, he changed his original plans about creating the sculpture in marble. The fountain was completed in 1961, at which point the IU Auditorium and Lilly Library were completed and the Fine Arts Building was in its final planning stages. The funding for the completion of the Showalter Fountain dolphins was contributed by Grace Showalter. She gifted this fountain to IU in memory of her husband, Ralph W. Showalter. A must-see landmark at IU, the Showalter Fountain provides students and visitors a great spot for viewing the beauty of the Fine Arts Plaza. Fine Arts Building The establishment of the


Fine Arts Building was a dream of former IU President Herman B Wells and realized by Henry R. Hope, who served as the director of the museum until his retirement in 1971. “When I was being interviewed for the chairmanship of this department in May 1941, Wells showed me a water color rendering of the proposed Art Center and expressed the hope — it seemed more like a dream at the time — that someday funds might be found, perhaps donated, for this building,” Hope said. “The war put an end to such hopes and I had almost forgotten the project when it was brought to life again in 1955.” Their dream came true in 1962, but started small. When Hope arrived, the School of Fine Arts had just two faculty members. Before having its own building, the fine arts program at IU was frustrated by the fragmentation of the program and the absence of a secure place to exhibit artwork. However, Hope’s dream was realized after 19 years. In 1939, when the IU Auditorium was completed, it was proposed to locate the future School of Fine Arts on the site north of the plaza. The design of

With these valuable collections, the Lilly Library was built for three purposes. First, playing the role of a museum, the library dramatizes the book and exhibit material of intellectual worth. Second, the library will give the best physical care and conservation for the collections. Third, the establishment of the Lilly Library aims to provide working

space for scholars and students to use these primary resources effectively. With these purposes and designing by Eggers & Higgins, the Lilly Library corresponds to the other structures in the Fine Arts Plaza dedicated to culture and art. The Lilly Library also has a strong collection of paintings and more than 100,000 volumes and 1.5 million manuscripts. They illustrate significant development of Western civilization. Additionally, the Lilly Library has the largest collection of mechanical puzzles in the world.

Where to laugh on campus By Bridget Murray

Kyli Walls said the future of comedy is happening here. Though she didn’t want to sound grandiose, the class of 2016 graduate and founder of Backdoor Comedy said the comedy community at IU has “some good stuff going.” Walls said IU’s comedy community, the collection of student-formed comedy troupes on campus, has free improv, standup and sketch comedy shows happening almost every night. “(It’s) such an underrated part of campus,” she said. The community officially started in 1994 with the formation of Full Frontal Comedy, IU’s longest-running troupe to date. It has now grown to eight comedy groups on campus. Alongside individual shows, members collaborate to host IU Campus Comedy Festival each spring to showcase all of the groups together. There were semblances of comedy troupes before Full Frontal, IU alumnus and founding member Derek Miller said, but none of them stuck. Miller had grown up with the improv comedy scene in Chicago and practiced in high school with founding member Jill Benjamin, he said. They created Full Frontal not really knowing if there was a demand for a comedy troupe on campus, but because it was something they wanted to do, Miller said. “We obviously hoped that people would come see it,” Miller said. Miller said Full Frontal Comedy shows went from five or 10 people in the audience to cramming an audience with 200 people. Within the first few years of existence, Full Frontal had its own equipment and was getting paid gigs off-campus. “They turned into full-on events for us,” Miller said. Walls formed Backdoor Comedy in 2013. After hearing about the comedy groups on campus, Walls said she started auditioning. She got a callback for every single

one, she said, but didn’t make it. However, Walls said she was not discouraged. She had already immersed herself in the comedy community and, with the support of other groups, created a group that would combine both sketch and improv comedy, she said. That’s how Backdoor was born, she said. In the beginning, Walls said she employed the help of members of other groups to sit in on Backdoor’s first auditions and lead practices. They never claimed to be anything more than what they were, she said. “I was lucky enough to have the support of the other groups,” she said. “Through the help of all the friends I had made in the community, Backdoor survived.” Walls said entering the comedy community with a newer troupe showed her the immense support from its members. “That level of support is just, like — it feels warm and happy,” she said. Mike Blomquist said the comedy community has become more collaborative and

united in the past few years. A past member of the longest-running sketch ensemble at IU, Boy in the Bubble, Blomquist said the groups support each other while still bringing their own styles to the mix. “No two groups perform exactly the same style of comedy, because each group is comprised of multiple persons with separate agendas and senses of humor,” he said in an email. “As a result, we have Bubble, which contrasts starkly from tWits, which contrasts starkly from Backdoor.” Although each year brings a change in membership for comedy troupes, Walls said she thinks the community is constantly changing. “I’m really excited to say that I was a part of it, and I’m really excited to see where it’s gonna go,” she said. Blomquist said IU is fortunate to have so many comedy groups present and bringing their brand of funny to students. He said he hopes support for the groups will continue to grow. “Quality comedy deserves a quality audience,” he said.

IU is home to groundbreaking sex research By Bridget Murray

Founder of what is today the Kinsey Institute, Dr. Alfred Charles Kinsey was an American sexologist and one of the early pioneers of sex research in the U.S. Dr. Debby Herbenick, associate professor in the School of Public Health and Director of the

Center for Sexual Health Promotion, said Kinsey was adamant that studying human sexual behavior in and of itself was valuable and important. Outside of his research on human sexual behavior, however, Kinsey had a side of his life not many people knew. SEE KINSEY, PAGE 23


Alfred Kinsey with Clyde Martin and Wardell Pomeroy in 1947.

Founder of what is now the Kinsey Institute, Dr. Alfred Kinsey was an American sexologist. He was also a biologist and a professor of entomology and zoology. This timeline highlights Kinsey’s accomplishments, career and life at IU. Information from 1920 Dr. Kinsey arrived at IU after receiving his Ph.D. from Harvard University. He studied gall wasps and specialized in taxonomy and individual variation.

1938 Kinsey began teaching his course “Marriage and Family,” offered for senior and married students at IU. From there, he researched sex and began collecting sex histories. He gathered nearly 2,000 histories.

1947 The National Research Council’s Committee for Research on the Problems of Sex had funded Kinsey’s team with a $40,000 grant by this year.

April 7, 1947 Kinsey and his team officially formed into the Institute for Sex Research, a nonprofit corporation.

August 25, 1956 Dr. Kinsey died. He was 62.

1953 “Sexual Behavior in the Human Female” is published. It features the sexual scale known as the “Kinsey Scale.”

JANUARY 1948 “Sexual Behavior in the Human Male” is published, and royalties go to ISR for further research.

1948 Kinsey sells the contents of his research library to ISR for $1.

Black greek life on campus By Lexia Banks | @LexiaBanks

The National Pan-Hellenic Council is comprised of nine historically black fraternities and sororities, collectively known as the Divine Nine. Each organization is rich in history and the upraising of the black community. You can find all nine of the incorporations at IU and, if you’re lucky, you might even catch an NPHC step show. Here’s a brief breakdown of each individual organization.

NPHC Fraternities Kappa Alpha Psi Kappa Alpha Psi was born on IU’s campus in 1911 originally as Kappa Alpha Nu. The name was later changed in 1914. The fraternity takes pride in its influence on changes made to greek letter organizations, such as the ban on paddling, and boasts a number of famous alumni, including Cedric the Entertainer, Colin Kaepernick and IU’s own Booker T. Jones.

students facing discrimination at Cornell and has grown throughout the decades to provide a distinctive voice to the Civil Rights movement through its members, such as W.E.B. Dubois, Thurgood Marshall and Martin Luther King Jr.

Omega Psi Phi Founded at Howard University, Omega Psi Phi was the first international fraternal order created on the campus of a historically black university. Omega made history when several members graduated as part of the first class of black soldiers from Camp Fort Des Moines in 1917. Notable members include Langston Hughes, Michael Jordan and Jesse Jackson.

Iota Phi Theta Just weeks after Martin Luther King Jr.‘s “I Have a Dream Speech,” 12 students at Morgan State University founded Iota Phi Theta. The fraternity has continued to grow to include 249 chapters under the motto, “Building a Tradition, Not Resting Upon One.” Notable members include T.C. Carson, Calvin Murphy and Kendrick Dean.

Phi Beta Sigma Three students at Howard University founded Phi Beta Sigma in 1914 with the intention of building an organization that would exemplify “the ideals of brotherhood, scholarship and service.” Some of the fraternity’s well-known members are Rev. Al Sharpton, George Washington Carver and Terrance Howard.

Alpha Kappa Alpha The first black greek letter sorority was founded in 1908 at Howard University. Alpha Kappa Alpha has made strides in the improvement of the black community through its donations to black businesses, building schools in South Africa and launching programs to better the education of black children. Notable members include Loretta Devine, Wanda Sykes and Toni Morrison.

Alpha Phi Alpha Alpha Phi Alpha originated at Cornell University in 1906. It began as a study group for minority

NPHC Sororities

Delta Sigma Theta Delta Sigma Theta was found-

ed by 22 women at Howard University in 1913 who wanted to promote academic excellence and help those in need. Just two months after its creation, the women of Delta Sigma Theta participated in the Women’s Suffrage March. Some of the sororities most well-known members include Soledad O’Brien, Cicely Tyson and Aretha Franklin. Zeta Phi Beta With the hope of making positive changes, five Howard University students founded Zeta Phi Beta in 1920. Zeta Phi Beta set precedents within the National Pan-Hellenic Council by being the first to build a chapter in Africa and to constitutionally bind itself to a fraternity. Notable members include Camille Cooper, Gwendolyn Brooks and Dionne Warwick. Sigma Gamma Rho Sigma Gamma Rho was founded in 1922 at Butler University with the mission to “enhance the quality of life for women and their families in the U.S. and globally through community service.” The sorority has kept its promise to help people through its foundations such as the National Education Fund. Notable members include Hattie McDaniel, Kelly Price and Anna Maria Horsford.

Painting of campus bridges time-honored By Jonah Chester

Painting bridges is a time-honored activity at IU. Clubs, greek organizations and various other student groups have been painting and tagging bridges, such as the Jordan River bridge, for decades. The practice has become so common that most consider it an IU tradition, along with rights of passage such as dipping your toes in Showalter Fountain or participating in Little 500 festivities. Painting bridges is so old, in fact, that nobody knows precisely when it began. Former dean of students Richard McKaig gave an interview to the Indiana Daily Student in 2004 where he confirmed the painted bridges had been around at least as long as he had become dean in 1971. However, going any further back, the history starts to become blurry. The information is not readily available online, and the only way to retrieve it is to

visit the IU Archives and request physical documents from the archives storage area. “I don’t have any special knowledge of the history of tagging or painting bridges,” University Historian Jim Capshew said. “It seems as if the painting is a spontaneous act ... so there is not a lot of documentation.” In addition to its lack of documentation, another interesting aspect of painting campus bridges has always been the hands-off approach that IU takes to regulating the activity. According to the website for the Division of Student Affairs, painting is “on a first come, first serve basis.” It also states all students and student organizations have equal access to bridges and no one group is allowed to “guard” the bridge from other students. Bridge painting is so ingrained in IU traditions it is one of few forums on campus where this kind of public expression and unregulated freedom is allowed. There



For years, students on campus have expressed themselves and communicated information by painting campus bridges.

are only two rules for painting. Compare that to other methods, such as chalking, which has seven different rules and regulations. The two rules for painting on the bridge are to keep paint off the sidewalks and don’t guard the bridge. Because of the lack of rules, any organization on campus can paint the bridge at any time. Even individual students are allowed to paint the bridge, as

was the case in 2001 when one student used the bridge to propose to his girlfriend by painting “Will you marry me?” across the stone. For now the practice of painting bridges remains an unregulated process. There are rumors the bridge may be regulated at some point. But for now it remains a tradition based around a hands-off approach and a freedom of expression.

Senior quarterback Nate Sudfeld holds the Oaken Bucket and members of the football team celebrate after beating Purdue, 54-36, at Ross-Ade Stadium.

A token of tradition By Michael Hughes @MichaelHughes94

Each time an IU football player walks out of the locker room, he is reminded of what was won last November. Sitting in a display case, the base of which looks like the trophy it holds, is the Old Oaken Bucket, the trophy IU and Purdue play for each year. For the last three years, the Bucket has been in Bloomington. It’s only the third time since the Bucket became apart of the rivalry the Bucket has been housed in Bloomington for that long. Before 1925, IU and Purdue still played, but there wasn’t a trophy awarded to the winner until alumni from both schools living in Chicago decided to

change that. Assistant Athletic Director for Alumni Relations Mark Deal said the inspiration to use a bucket came from Samuel Woodworth’s 1818 poem “Old Oaken Bucket.” “All these scenes were typical of Indiana, so they said let’s find an Old Oaken Bucket in order to make it a neat trophy,” Deal said. “So they commissioned a couple people to find this trophy.” These couple people traveled all through the state, searching for a bucket they seemed suitable to play for. It took until they reached Bruner Farm, located between Hanover, Indiana, and Kent, Indiana, near the Ohio River, before they found the right bucket. The schools didn’t actually obtain the bucket until October, a month before the game. That


game also ended in a scoreless tie, meaning the first link on the bucket has both an “I” and a “P.” “It just happened, and it’s kind of poetic justice, that the first

game ended in a tie,” Deal said. “So the first link is ‘IP,’ for both schools. I wish we had won it, I wish we had won the first game but it was a 0-0 tie.”

Fall/Winter 2016 The Old Oaken Bucket means a lot to Deal. He can name each time IU and Purdue have tied and the scores of those games. He can recite Woodworth’s poem. He can also sift through the links to find the ones he played in, his brother played in and his father played in. His father was the captain of the 1945 Big Ten Championship team and his brother played on the 1967 team that went to the Rose Bowl. All in all, the Deals have combined to win 13 links connected to the Old Oaken Bucket. “Between my brother, my dad and myself, we either played in or coached for 13 of those ‘I’s,’” Deal said. “We’re the winningest family in the history of the bucket for Indiana. I can’t say anything about the other team.” Deal now has the responsibility of distributing the bucket. That could either mean handing it to an IU player if the Hoosiers hold on to the trophy, or walking it across the field to a Purdue player. It’s a responsibility Deal takes pride in, in part because of how much he respects the trophy. Deal won’t touch the bucket in years Purdue has won and he won’t allow Purdue fans to touch it during the years it spends in Bloomington. This means at the Old Oaken Bucket luncheon, which is attended by former players of both schools, Deal will only look at the bucket. “If Purdue brings it to the luncheon, I won’t touch it,” Deal said. “I don’t deserve to touch it because we don’t have it, it’s not ours. I will not touch that when we don’t have it.” But the Hoosiers do have the bucket, which has been sitting in the display case in the locker room for the past three years. The case was donated by a fan group in 2014 and Deal said it helps inspire current Hoosiers to work and keep the bucket. It could provide more inspiration when empty. “If we don’t win, it’s an empty case,” Deal said. “That’s a lot of motivation when you have to walk by an empty case for 365 days.” IU started it’s current threegame win streak in 2014, the same year the case was donated. The Hoosiers have never had to look at an empty case yet.

The lasting legacy of Herman B Wells By Austin Faulds | @a_faulds9615

From war correspondent Ernie Pyle to author Suzanne Collins, it’s no secret countless icons have at one time or another made IU their home. However, of all its alumni, the one who has had the largest effect on the University is former President Herman B Wells. Wells transferred from the University of Illinois to IU in 1921 and graduated in 1924. During his undergraduate term, he served as president of the fraternity Sigma Nu. Before he was even inaugurated as president in 1938, Wells traveled more than 33,000 miles internationally in search of suitable teachers, according to a short biography by former Vice President of Research George E. Walker. “A university cannot render distinguished service to its constituency without a distinguished faculty; therefore, the selection of faculty personnel is of first importance,” Wells said to trustees in 1942. Wells persuaded both new and old faculty alike to join and share his vision of enlightenment. In his 25 years as president, he expanded the student body to more than 30,000 statewide, and grew the size of the campus from 167 acres to 1,800 acres, constructing new buildings and halls. Wells was proud of the beauty of his campus, and he was always a strong supporter of preserving it. “To cut a tree unnecessarily has long

been an act of treason against our heritage and the loyalty, love and effort of our predecessors who have preserved it for us,” he said. The former president was passionate about all levels of academia, and while he was able to further research on science and professional education, he also developed on visual and performing arts for the University. This artistic interest eventually led to the construction of the Fine Arts Building. Wells was also a promoter of free intellect. He believed both faculty and students should have the liberty to inquire, without constraints. Wells’ encouragement led former professor Dr. Alfred C. Kinsey, a researcher of sexual behavior, to establishing the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction. Outside the campus, Wells was appointed by President Harry S. Truman to be the cultural affairs liaison for the U.S. Military Government in Germany. On top of this, he spent most of the 1950s and 1960s providing educational and technical support to numerous international universities in countries such as

Thailand and Pakistan. This international work encouraged his nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize in 1970. The legacy of Wells is preserved by IU in the form of a bronze statue resting on a bench in the Old Crescent near Owen Hall. It is an IU tradition to shake Wells’ outstretched hand at the beginning of each term at IU for good fortune. Another prominent example of retaining his honor on campus is the Wells Library, the main campus library that was

named after the former president. Inside the main hall of this building sits a bust of Wells. A portrait of Wells is also featured in the President’s Room in the University Club in the Indiana Memorial Union. “I hope that our alumni will always insist on retention of our precious islands of green and serenity,” Wells said in his last commencement speech. “Our most important physical asset, transcending even classrooms, libraries and laboratories in their ability to inspire students to dream long dreams of future usefulness and achievement.”

Kinsey was a biologist and a professor of entomology and zoology. He was intrigued by nature, and spent the first part of his career studying gall wasps. He collected millions of gall wasps during his travels throughout the United States and in Mexico, Herbenick said. “He also was an avid gardener and in particular was known for his irises,” she said in an email. Although Kinsey was not the only sex researcher of the age, the large scale of his work distinguished him from others. After he began teaching his course on “Marriage and Family” in 1938, Kinsey embarked on his sexual research, collecting nearly 2,000 sexual histories in three years. “He and his research team interviewed thousands of women and men,” Herbenick said in an email. “(A)nd launched large-scale research on the topic of human sexual behavior.” Herbenick said people in Kinsey’s area and people today still struggle to find accurate

sexual information. She said she and her team try to find innovative ways to share science-based information about sex, much like Kinsey did. Herbenick said Kinsey’s influence and values affect her work with her research team. “(A) personal value that I carry into my work as a sex researcher and educator is, first, that studying sex matters,” she said in an email. “(S)ciencebased information should be shared widely and with the masses.”

What is a Hoosier?

IU has had a number of mascots through the years, but none have stuck By Andrew Hussey

What is a Hoosier? Many IU fans have obsessed over that question and throughout the past century, many have tried to answer that question by creating a mascot for IU. From the 1920s to now, different mascots have been chosen to represent IU. The athletic department have used live animals and even commissioned Walt Disney to design a mascot. But nothing has stuck and after many attempts and IU still lacks a mascot. The first recorded mascot for IU appeared in the 1920s, when the Hoosiers used a Navy Billy goat as their mascot. In what would become a trend, the goat did not catch on. Dogs seamed to be the next phase of mascots that students wanted. In the 1930s, a collie was selected as IU’s mascot by an election. The collie was supposed to be presented to the head football coach at halftime, but they didn’t have enough money for the collie. In 1952, the Hoosier Schoolmaster became IU’s mascot, but it didn’t last long. In the late 1950s, a bulldog became the new IU mascot. Theta Chi’s bulldog, Ox, became the mascot in 1958 and the dog would wear a red sweater with an “IU” on it in the center. The longest running and most successful of the mascots was the bison. In the 1960s, IU adopted the bison as its mascot after a groundswell of support from students. The bison was chosen because the animal appears on the state seal of Indiana. In October of 1965, the bison was voted on and approved by the Student Senate and became the first official mascot. At first, the students wanted to keep a live bison that would attend the football games. However, the state did not want to purchase the animal for the school. The students turned to a bison costume as the alternative to having an actual bison. At first the

costume was a full bison but, over time, the costume became just a bison’s head. Dave Thompson was one of the students who would wear the bison costume. “The job has all the benefits of being a regular cheerleader,” Thompson said in a 1967 Indiana Daily Student article. In 1979, Mr. Hoosier Pride became the face of IU football. The mascot was instituted on a trial basis and it was a husky cowboy that had a red beard and a large cowboy hat. “We needed one character to identify with the University,” then-Athletic Director Ralph Floyd said in an IDS article in 1979. The mascot was divisive among the fans because Mr. Hoosier Pride was supposed to look like a hick and that rubbed some fans the wrong way. Mr. Hoosier Pride was active in his one season as it traveled to the Holiday Bowl and wrestled with BYU’s cougar mascot at the game. The mascot did not attend basketball games and was not brought back after the 1979 football season. In 1980, a contest was launched to find a new mascot for IU. The Student Athletic Board had a drawing contest to come up with the ideas that could potentially become the mascot. The ideas that stuck were a rooster, a dragon, a gargoyle, Tasmanian devil and Henry Hoosier. None of the ideas stuck and were never brought to life beyond a simple drawing. Since 1980, there hasn’t been a real push to find a new mascot and no new mascot has been designed. However, that doesn’t mean the conversation around a mascot has stopped. “I think it’s very important that we disagree on what a Hoosier means so that we continue to have this conversation,” IU professor of Indiana history James Madison said in a 2010 IDS article. That’s the central question of the mascot conversation — from the collie, to the bison, to Mr. Hoosier Pride, what’s a Hoosier? Though there hasn’t been a mascot instituted in many decades, IU Athletic Director Fred Glass said it could still happen. “Ultimately that’s a university decision, and my belief is that if it bubbles up, it will be more a grass roots effort from students and fans,” Glass said in a 2011 Indianapolis Star article.

Fall/Winter 2016

The best of the campus bucket list IU is known for its beautiful campus thanks to its exceptional public art, architecture and landscape. Here are 15 things you can do on campus to get the most out of IU and its grounds while you’re here. IDS FILE PHOTOS

1. Snap a photo in front of the Sample Gates. 2. Enjoy brunch along the Jordan River.

6. At night, be sure to check out the iconic Light Totem just outside the museum. 7. Go stargazing at the Kirkwood Observatory, open for public viewing Wednesday evenings between March and November. 8. Visit the Indiana Memorial Union for bowling or a free movie. 9. Take a swim at the IU Outdoor Pool. 10. Stroll through Dunn’s Woods to Rose Well House gazebo, built in 1908, in the heart of campus near Wylie and Owen halls. 11. Look around the Jordan Hall Greenhouses by appointment or during public hours.

3. Dip your feet in the Showalter Fountain. The centerpiece of the Fine Arts Plaza, the fountain features the birth of Venus surrounded by dolphins. 4. Experience an opera at the Musical Arts Center. 5. Visit the IU Art Museum which houses 40,000 objects — among them paintings by Matisse, Jackson Pollock and Pablo Picasso.

13. Shake the hand of the Herman B Wells Statue. 14. Play along with Hoagy Carmichael’s sculpture. The bronze sculpture, outside the IU Cinema, depicts Bloomington’s famous jazz composer and songwriter Hoagy Carmichael sitting at a piano. It was installed in 2008. 15. Look at an Oscar or the Gutenberg Bible up close and personal at the Lilly Library. The library features about 400,000 rare books, more than 7.5 million manuscripts and special collections including puzzles and sheet music.

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 and Best Local Restaurant in Bloomington twice as voted by the IU community through the IDS Best of Bloomington poll. It has also received the 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 Goldsh 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.
