On the Move

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.

Message of Hope

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]

Space for Sororities

Saluting the Kaydeens

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.

Rain on the Parade... Again

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.
