Indiana University East is welcoming its newest group of freshman to campus. New Student Orientations for the incoming Class of 2014 begin today. For new freshmen, this program is the first step to starting their college career.
At its June 11 meeting, the Indiana University Board of Trustees gave its approval for Indiana University East to pursue further approvals for its third master’s degree program.
The Master of Science in Management will now move on to the Indiana Commission for Higher Education and the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association for their approvals. Upon approval of these two commissions, the new graduate degree could be offered at IU East as early as the fall 2011.
The upcoming exhibit in the Indiana University East art gallery will be “The Works of Mike Elsass” on display now through July 2. The Gallery exhibit features the Ohio based artist’s abstract and weathered steel paintings that represent strength, life’s elements, aging, imperfection and beauty.
The Indiana University East Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) team competed in its first national competition held May 11-13 in Minneapolis, Minn.
“As our first trip to the National competition, finishing in the top 100 out of 800 teams worldwide is a very impressive accomplishment for IU East SIFE,” said Tim Scales, lecturer of business and director of the Center for Entrepreneurship, and the team’s advisor. “I’m confident we’ll be back to the national competition next year. Our goal will be to make the top 20,” Scales said.
There is always work for Mort Seddighin. A student calls to ask about a textbook for an online class. On his desk, there are dozens of papers laying nearby.
He picks up a bundle of stapled papers between his pointer finger and thumb to show that even though classes have just started for the semester, he has work to do. “I have this stack of papers to referee for journals,” Seddighin said.
