DPU Travel Traditions

The Seven Wonders of DPU By Sunny Strader and Becca Stanek bts@thedepauw.com

1.

2.

3. It’s not unusual to see a DePauw explorer streaking to the Boulder in an attempt to have fun. Leave your inhibitions in your suitcase, along with your clothes. CLAIRE ZINGRAF / The depauw By Leah Freestone bts@thedepauw.com

The Monon Bell Game Considered one of the oldest and greatest college football rivalries, this annual matchup between DePauw University and Wabash College began in 1890. Overall, Wabash holds the most wins with a record of 57-53-9. However, since the actual 300-pound Monon Railroad bell was introduced as the trophy in 1932, the teams are tied 37-37-6. This year’s game will take place at DePauw on November 16, 2013.   Old Gold Weekend The first Old Gold Day in 1907 was originally developed to stop the violent “class scraps,” or interclass battles between freshmen and sophomores. But in 1919, the events of the current tradition began. Old Gold weekend includes a home football game, the crowning of the Old Gold king and queen (similar to homecoming king and queen), and the return of many alumni to campus to join in the festivities. Little 5 The Little 500 bike race, now shortened to Little

5, began in 1956 as a fundraiser for the American Cancer fund. The track originally consisted of the streets surrounding East College, but has since moved to Blackstock Stadium, the streets surrounding Julian Science and Mathematics Center and Lilly Center, and finally, in 2012, to the streets surrounding the Green Center for Performing Arts. The event consists of a women’s race followed by a men’s race, but the entire week leading up to the big day is filled with various greek organization competitions, including street sprints on Friday evening. This year’s Little 5 will be on April 20, 2013. Marvin’s Marvin’s is located at 202 South College Avenue and is the home of the famous GCB, or Garlic Cheeseburger: definitely not a good meal for a day on the go, but a great meal after a tough day traveling. Ubben Lectures Alumni Timothy and Sharon Ubben have brought nearly 100 lecturers to campus since the series began in 1986. Past speakers include Bill Clinton, Jane Goodall, Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair. This fall Ron Paul, three-time presidential candidate and former congressman, and Bret Baier, alum and Fox News anchor, will speak.

The G.C.B. (also known as the Garlic Cheeseburger): Whether you’re cramming for a test, or starving after a long night, a greasy hamburger with a slice of cheddar and a sprinkle of garlic always hits the spot. It’s been a campus favorite for decades, and alum have been known stop by campus just to snag one. The Boulder The 5,000-pound granite rock in front of East College has been a campus fixture since 1892. The rock was discovered near Morton, 12 miles northeast of Greencastle, and was brought to campus to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Columbus’s arrival. Today, however, the Boulder takes on a different connotation.

East College This building is the face of DePauw, and if you’ve gotten a letter from DePauw then you’ve seen it. If not, check out any DePauw students’ Instagram accounts. The first classes were held there in 1875, though the basement was unfinished. The building was officially dedicated in 1877. Greek Life Just under 70 percent of DePauw students are affiliated with a greekletter organization. From multicultural groups to traditional sororities and fraternities, DePauw offers 25 different organizations.

The Bell The 300-pound locomotive bell from the Monon Railroad is the trophy for the annual rivalry football game between DePauw University and Wabash College. Although the rivalry sparked in 1890, the Bell became a symbol of victory in 1932. The Nature Park The 520-acre park has 10 miles of walking trails. From 1917 to 1977, the park was a limestone quarry. The land was donated in 2003, and the university bought additional acreage to transform the quarry into what it is today.

Freshmen Mixers Even upperclassmen reminsce about how fun these nights were. You’ll meet some of your best friends for the next four years. Whether it’s Casino Night, the Luau, 80’s Night or Highlighter Party these get-togethers are bound to be some of your favorite college memories.


Restaurant Reviews: Must-eats in town The Fluttering Duck

If you’re hungry for a slice of pizza or bowl of pasta make the journey over to Mama Nunz. The restaurant features a diverse menu that highlights classic Italian dishes and even features its own rendition of a GCB. What’s almost better than the food, though, is the atmosphere. You’ll be greeted by a tiger statue outside the door. DePauw knickknacks adorn the walls providing a definite sense of Tiger pride. No matter what you order the Nunzio family will make sure it tastes great and that you have incredible experience.

The Dairy Castle

If you’re craving something a little spicy or want to snack on some chips and salsa, then head to Casa Grande. Also known simply as “Casa” by most DePauw students, it offers a varied menu of burritos, quesadillas, tacos, and all other traditional Mexican dishes. Once you’re old enough, it is also a great place to unwind with a margarita or daiquiri after a long week of traveling.

Almost Home

A great place on campus to grab dinner with friends or watch a game on the widescreen TVs. The casual dining menu includes burgers, sandwiches and salads. Some student favorites include spinach artichoke dip, the buffalo chicken wrap and the pretzel breadsticks. Catch a night of jazz music on Thursday , play a game of pool or listen to your favorite tunes on the jukebox while you enjoy a meal that can be charged to your Tiger Card.

Mama Nunz

If you’re looking for a sweet treat, or need to cool off after a long day of sight-seeing around campus, then a visit to Dairy Castle is a must. This little colorfully-painted shop serves up a wide variety of ice cream specialties in generous portions at student-friendly prices. While splitting the wonderfully enormous “brownie fantasy” may become your favorite treat to share with friends, be sure not to overlook their regular food. Try a Reuben sandwich, hot dog, or even taco salad for a quick and tasty meal.

Casa Grande

If your parents are in town for the weekend, and you’re looking for a nice brunch or dinner, Almost Home is the place for you. It’s known as one of the upscale but affordable restaurants in town. While you’re there try the spinach artichoke, ravioli and paninis. Desserts of the day are brought out on a tray, each of which always sounds delicious. The food almost tastes like a home-cooked meal.

Public Safety Do’s & Don’ts Advice from seasoned travelers

By staff at the Depauw bts@thedepauw.com

Vacation may seem like the perfect time to let loose, but the rules still apply. Traveling should be fun though, so here are some tips for staying out of trouble and appropriately handling problems that you may run into.

Do be friendly Say hi and chat with the officers when you see them around campus. They’re not out to get you. They just want to ensure your safety.

Do utilize the services Public Safety does more than police the campus and deal with emergencies. Feel free to call if you lock yourself out of you room or even if you’re having car trouble. The Public Safety officers are always more than willing to help.

Don’t misuse the services Although Public Safety is more than happy to give you a ride if you feel unsafe, they aren’t your personal driver.

The main goal of Public Safety is not to get you in trouble; it is to ensure the safety of the students. It’d be smart to save Public Safety as a contact in your phone. The number is 765-6584261 You can also reach them in their office in the Union Building, room 200.

Do call 9-1-1 in case of fire or emergency Public Safety often works together with the Greencastle Police Department. When in doubt, call for help.

Don’t run away Even if you’re caught doing something you aren’t supposed to be doing, stay put and deal with the situation at hand. The officers are reasonable and will figure out how to best deal with the situation.
