Taped Up

26 Feb


Within the past few weeks, anonymously crafted tape sculptures such as this one have been appearing on campus inside of the Illinois Fall Creek Center. It is definitely entertaining to see the reactions of others shaking their heads, but what is the purpose of these seemingly random objects? My Humanities professor said in class that art makes you feel something. Do these additions to the IFC make you feel something? If so, does that make them art?

Ivy Tech Sports: Say No to Drugs

While drugs and alcohol may be a problem at many other colleges, athletic coordinator Jason Roth says different for Ivy Tech. “Since I’ve been athletic coordinator, we haven’t had any problems with drugs or alcohol,” says Roth.

Under Ivy Tech’s student rules, there is no tolerance for any illegal drug use. Students are also not allowed to drink alcohol while at school events. These are the same guidelines the Ivy Tech athletic department uses for student athletes. Currently, there is not any kind of random drug tests for the athletes, but that may change in the near future.

As of right now, Ivy Tech is transferring from club to national in sports. Athletes will now be held to a much higher standard under national rules. “The players will be looked at as more of student athletes than just average students. They’ll be looked at under a microscope as athletes,” says Roth.
