Thousands of students moved in to university housing August 24 and 25 at the start of the Fall semester, and more than 300 staff members, student workers, and volunteers were on hand to assist them. This photo was taken from Pratt Plaza, near the former site of Flagstone Theater and in front of Wallwork Hall, looking south down Pratt Drive. On the right are Delaney Hall, the Suites on Maple East, and the Eberly College of Business. To the left, in the distance, are the Suites on Pratt and the Kovalchick Convention and Athletic Complex.

Iraq War veteran and actor J. R. Martinez, also known for winning Season 13 of Dancing with the Stars, was the speaker for the fifth annual First Commonwealth Bank Endowed Lecture in September. His visit to IUP included a session with students to answer questions and offer advice. Martinez, who suffered burns to more than a third of his body after a land mine explosion in Iraq, now tours as a motivational speaker. [Keith Boyer]

Jean LeVan Hormell ’69, a former member of the Kaydeens at IUP, provided this photo of the group from 1965-66. According to Hormell, organizations and academic departments each would nominate one woman, and the pool of nominees was narrowed in a pageant to 17 finalists. Identifiable in their red skirts and capes and black heels, the Kaydeens would accompany IUP ROTC companies during public appearances. Front row, from left: Joann Javonovich Javons ’67, Patricia Notariani Scott ’67, Elizabeth Agnello Miceli ’68, Carole Baldoff Guest ’68 (queen), Rosalind Korowicki Tate ’68 (deceased), Carol Brown Dickert ’68, N. Buchanan. Back row: Linda Stalnecker Cook ’68, Arnette Malfaire Lowen ’68, Jean LeVan Hormell ’69, Michele Bajek ’68, Patsy Rupert ’68, Sharon Mark Hardy ’68, D. Kapanak, P. Barker, Marilyn Schoenig Clarke ’69, D. Smith. If you recognize any of the Kaydeens who aren’t fully identified or you have a story to share, please contact Harrison Wick, IUP Special Collections librarian and university archivist, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The cold and rain settled on Indiana just in time for Homecoming on October 6. With a parade theme of comics, the second-place float, Peanuts, by Delta Zeta, Kappa Sigma, Phi Delta Theta, and Sigma Kappa, made its way down Philadelphia Street, followed by the Marion Center Marching Band. Each float costs around $2,000 to make, according to the Center for Student Life, and Greek organizations join forces to share in the expense and the work load. More photos are at Homecoming.
