USI Creed

My Campus Directory

As a member of the USI community...

These people are now a part of my campus family:

• I will practice personal and academic integrity; • I will reject and confront all manifestations of discrimination while striving to learn from differences in people, ideas, and opinions; • I will demonstrate concern for others, their feelings, their property, and their need for conditions which support their work and development. • Allegiance to these ideals requires that I refrain from and discourage behaviors which threaten the freedom and respect every individual deserves. The University of Southern Indiana is a diverse community devoted to preparing students to become better citizens. Each member of this community is obligated to a code of civil behavior. If you experience or observe actions on campus which are not in accordance with the USI Creed, contact the Dean of Students Office.

Taking center stage this time is Nick Fury, leader of the peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D.

“One Size Fits Most” and “Rewriting the Man Code”

Sponsored by Activities Programming Board and Interfraternity Council

University Center, Carter Hall Chris has always been a strong-willed, independent, funny-guy, but his internal struggles with weight, body image, and his own obesity eventually spiraled out of control. Entering college at close to 300 pounds, Chris found solace in food. His exercise plan consisted of walks to and from class and cleaning the fraternity house. If Chris wanted to escape an early demise, something had to change. In 2006, Chris became a contestant representing West Virginia on NBC’s The Biggest Loser. During the eight months to follow, Chris’ life was reshaped physically, mentally, and emotionally. He gained important lessons about triumph, personal rewards, and self-reflection—and he lost more than 100 pounds.

Today, Chris is still strong-willed, independent, and funny, but he’s also an athlete, marathoner, and triathlete. While his relationship with food is still complicated, it is no longer his only mechanism toward happiness or comfort.

One Size Fits Most gives individuals the opportunity to live a day in Chris’

mind as he reflects on his emotional connection to food, his “introduction to the gym,” on gaining the freshman 50, and his confrontation with friends, family, and his conscience. Many in today’s student audiences will relate to his struggles, while others will be challenged to imagine how the issues surrounding weight and body shape affect our interactions, societal values, and the self esteem of our friends and loved ones.

In Rewriting the Man Code, Chris addresses the conflicted mindset of the modern man, dispelling labels, limitations, and outdated expectations of how masculinity shapes our inner thoughts and outer expression. He provides male students with a framework to help them live a life with character, value, and determination.

The day starts with a brief kickoff on the Quad before students head out to their projects for two to three hours. Transportation is provided. Afterward, students will use their Eagle Access Card to get lunch and gather for a short reflection. This will allow students to share their experiences. Registration for the Day of Service is REQUIRED. To register, visit the Welcome Week website www.usi.edu/welcomeweek, or stop by the Office of Student Development Program, main floor UC East before 2 p.m.

Most USI students...

...prefer to be with someone who does not drink or stays in control when they go out with friends.

*Results based on survey data collected from the University of Southern Indiana’s 2010 Assessment Day participant responses. 1 drink = one 12 oz. beer = 4-5 oz. wine = 1 oz. liquor

USI Creed

My Campus Directory

As a member of the USI community...

These people are now a part of my campus family:

• I will practice personal and academic integrity; • I will reject and confront all manifestations of discrimination while striving to learn from differences in people, ideas, and opinions; • I will demonstrate concern for others, their feelings, their property, and their need for conditions which support their work and development. • Allegiance to these ideals requires that I refrain from and discourage behaviors which threaten the freedom and respect every individual deserves. The University of Southern Indiana is a diverse community devoted to preparing students to become better citizens. Each member of this community is obligated to a code of civil behavior. If you experience or observe actions on campus which are not in accordance with the USI Creed, contact the Dean of Students Office.
