The African and African American studies (AFRI) department held their open house this past Tuesday. It provided students an opportunity to see the department and talk with faculty and staff.
The Student Advisory Board has been advertised as a “collection of students who are selected to give feedback to the dean of their specific college.” It is a diverse group that works closely in association with administration in order to give a student perspective on important issues, be they academic or otherwise.

February has begun and Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us. Valentine’s Day is something that people typically celebrate with a significant other, but it’s really just about love in general. It’s a day that can be celebrated with any kind of person that you love, whether it be family, friends, or your significant other. It is not something that is limited to a romantic partnership. This is especially important to those who are not involved in a romantic relationship, as they can feel left out during this time of year. That is why Indiana State’s Union Board launched an event called “Pal-entine” for friends to celebrate together during the month of February.
Every year, the first Sunday in February is an exciting time for football fans across America. Whether you are a football fanatic, or just like to socialize with family and friends, the commercials are a hot topic on this day.
