Ball State shows support for Virginia Tech Ball State joined the nation in morning those killed and injured during the April 16 massacre at the Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University in Blacksburg, Va. President Jo Ann M. Gora and other university leaders expressed their sorrow about the tragedy and quickly worked to reassure students, parents and the campus community about safety precautions in place at Ball State. In addition, the Ball State community came together April 18 for a candlelight vigil to commemorate the 32 Virginia Tech students and faculty members killed and 15 others who were wounded by the gunman - a student who killed himself after the rampage. And April 20, Ball State's carillon bells pealed mournfully at noon as part of a nationwide show of support of Virginia's day of mourning for the victims. Ball State student wins National Wildlife Federation's Campus Ecology Fellowship Ball State may be a more pristine environment in the years to come with the help of junior Francesca Hernandez. The landscape architecture major has received a Campus Ecology Fellowship from the National Wildlife Foundation and will be creating a strategic plan for the university to reduce energy use and lower damaging greenhouse gas emissions. "This fellowship means so much to me," Hernandez said. "I hope that it will be a way that I can contribute in a positive manner to the university in my final year as a student." Part of her plan is to create an educational campaign to inform incoming freshmen about the importance of energy conservation. She also hopes that it will teach them ways they can reduce energy use without sacrificing anything but time. "I will be working with the university's electrical engineer to monitor energy use in targeted residence halls so that we can determine whether this educational effort has made a quantitative difference," she said. Hernandez is the third Ball State student who has received the fellowship, which brings national attention to campus, said James Eflin, chairperson of the Department of Natural
Resources and Environmental Management. He said the student-driven project is a good example of an immersive learning experience. "Francesca is really talented and is taking an aggressive approach," Eflin said. "She's grabbed the bull by the horns and gained national attention." The first phase of her project is already in motion. She is working with a team of four to conduct a campuswide energy audit. They are using GIS mapping software to create a physical model that displays energy use and efficiency of the university's buildings. The data will be compiled to make a greenhouse gas "footprint" for campus. Hernandez participated in the National Wildlife Federation's annual meeting in March and said that it was one of the most exciting weeks of her life. "The annual meeting was an incredible experience," she said. "My experiences in the Business Fellows program prepared me for the social aspects of the meeting and allowed me to contribute on a level that surprised me." She also spent time lobbying on Capitol Hill and gained a better understanding of the political process. "I feel that ordinary people have tremendous potential to affect legislation," she said. "I'm more committed to being a part of the political process now." As part of the fellowship, Hernandez will receive a grant and resources to conduct her project, a National Wildlife magazine subscription and a Campus Ecology membership. She also will be included in the Campus Ecology yearbook. The National Wildlife Foundation's Campus Ecology Fellows confront global warming on their individual campuses by committing to reduce net emissions of greenhouse gases 30 percent by 2020. The fellows work with their university's administration to develop a climate action plan with the support of their adviser. Ball State honored 97 employees and retirees for their university service Ninety-seven Ball State employees with an impressive 1,897 years of collective service to the university were honored April 19 during the 42nd Annual Staff recognition and Retirement Award Program. Those honored include 17 retirees and 13 people with at least 30 years of service at Ball State. In addition, four employees received Meritorious Service Awards and one person was named this year's winner of the A. Jane Morton Award for Excellence. "This has been a great year at Ball State. And that's why I especially enjoy evenings such as these," Ball State President Jo Ann M. Gora said during the dinner at Pittenger Student
Center. "Too infrequently we pause and take the time to take a deep breath and reflect on the accomplishments we all have achieved together. "One need to look no further than this room to see many of the dedicated individuals who unselfishly put the needs of our students before their own, people who have dedicated the majority - if not all - of their professional careers diligently working to help the university become the distinctive institution it is today." The 2007 Meritorious Service Award winners, by category, are: • • •

'One Small Project' yields big rewards for Ball State students A group of Ball State students had but one this semester. They were credited with a full load of classes, however, and will tell you it was the busiest, most provocative semester they've had thus far. Thirteen students spent the semester immersed in "One Small Project," a seminar at the university's Virginia Ball Center for Creative Inquiry that focused on "leftover" people, materials and spaces that exist in every city, as well as the potential of those resources for constructing new homes.
An estimated 1 billion leftover people - typically called squatters, self-builders, informal settlers, displaced persons or even slum dwellers - claim forgotten spaces in cities and live in unauthorized dwellings often made of scavenged, discarded materials, says Wes Janz, architecture professor and seminar adviser. "Certainly you've been touched by one, even if reluctantly," he said, describing such encounters in imagined yet informed detail. "A begging mother in Mumbai laying her sleeping baby's head in your lap as you idle in an open three-wheeler, and you wave her off. An old woman standing curbside in St. Petersburg tries to sell you a handful of peas, and you walk on. A child recycler in Buenos Aires claws through your garbage as you watch from a window." Why attempt to seek relevance in the lives of leftover people? Leftover people are the largest builders of housing in the world, busily creating the cities of the future, Janz claims. These people, who build continuously and constantly imagine improvements and additions, have a passion that should inspire architects, he added. "The goal of the students is not to change the world, however, but to change themselves and some of the people they come into contact with as a result of the project," Janz said. "To them, this small difference is big enough." To accomplish their objective, the students explored the borderland between California and Mexico for close-up views of people living on skid row. They worked with a group that was administering a needle exchange program. During the West Coast trek, they also explored the architecture that permeated the landscape. From their observations, they learned to be quite conscious about being observed, said participant Katie Townsend. "When we were walking through Los Angeles' skid row, we were concerned about what facial expressions we should be making and how we should look," she recalled. "When people were joking with us, we didn't know what our reactions should be." On another trip closer to home, the group visited Flint, Mich. Because of a shrinking population, the city is demolishing block after block of abandoned homes. While there, the students created a time-lapse short film documenting one home being reduced to rubble. In Indianapolis, the students also helped prepare meals at Second Helpings, which converts more than 100,000 pounds of rescued food into 50,000 meals every month. They participated, too, in a quilting group and helped redesign a community room at the Colonial Park supportive rental housing community site created and managed by Partners in Housing, which works to create homes for people with special needs.
Bringing together all that they've learned for the last phase of their project, they finally cataloged and organized their semester's worth of work - the end result being the creation of an exhibit at the Dean Johnson Gallery in Indianapolis, which will be on display until April 26. Related events include: • • •
"Home and Homelessness" - 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., April 18, the Blue Triangle Residence Hall (a Partners in Housing community site in downtown Indianapolis) "Volunteerism and the Role of Government" - Noon to 2 p.m., April 25, College of Architecture and Planning, South Courtyard "Immigration in Indianapolis"- 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., April 27, University Park (downtown Indianapolis)
"The students really did an outstanding job on what they found powerful or poignant during the semester - the things that punched them in the gut," Janz said. "They really turned the lens back on themselves and worked to determine who they want to be." Additional information on the project can be found at www.bsu.edu/onesmallproject. Ball State students study poverty's effects in four-part radio show Ten Ball State students are hoping to change the public's preconceived ideas about poverty though a four-part radio series they produced as part of a Virginia Ball Center for Creative Inquiry semester-long project. The students created "Voice and Vision: Poverty from the Inside Out" with the assistance of Eva Zygmunt-Fillwalk, a Ball State assistant professor of elementary education. Working with Indiana Public Radio and Muncie's TEAMwork for Quality Living, the students developed the radio series to raise awareness and solicit increased community commitment toward eliminating poverty - one individual, one family at a time. The students' radio shows will premiere at 6:45 p.m. April 26 at the Cornerstone Center for the Arts, 520 E. Main St., Muncie. Refreshments will be provided during a 6 p.m. reception. The program is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. For reservations, call (765) 287-0117 or e-mail [email protected]
. Scholarship established at Ball State to honor the dreams and celebrate the life of alumnus Legos and tree-forts shaped Andrew Zabel's dream of becoming an architect, but before it became reality, he lost his life to a rare form of cancer.
In his honor, family and friends have contributed more than $32,000 to create the Andrew Zabel Scholarship as a gift to other students who share his love for architecture so they may accomplish their dreams. When he was 10, Andrew Zabel dreamed about becoming an architect and began building with Legos. At age 14, it had evolved into two tree-forts complete with drawings, illustrations and diagrams. His passion for architecture at an early age left no doubt in his mind that he would attend Ball State University and pursue what he deemed a "practical art." At Ball State, Zabel quickly received recognition for his originality and drive that always took him to extremes. He started projects wearing his "worst" clothes and signature bandana. Days later, he emerged from the studio wearing a charismatic smile and threepiece suit, ready to present his vision. Andrew's brother, Steve Zabel, recalled how Andrew's dedication and work was respected by fellow architecture students in the fall 2005 edition of "ReCAP," Ball State's College of Architecture and Planning's annual publication. "One day, a classmate in my studio rather sheepishly confessed, 'Please don't tell your brother this, but you know that awesome model of his on display in the Atrium? I covered up his name with mine because I really wanted to impress my parents when they visited this weekend,'" Steve Zabel said in the article. Andrew Zabel graduated in 1999, but before he could fulfill his dream of becoming a registered architect, doctors diagnosed him with Ewing's Sarcoma. He battled the rare and aggressive form of bone cancer for two years, but died July 4, 2003. Appropriately for him, it was Independence Day, Steve Zabel said. Preferred scholarship recipients are incoming freshmen within the College of Architecture and Planning who have a minimum academic index of 3.0 and an SAT score of 1,500 on the new scoring system. The scholarship is renewable for three years if the student continues to meet the qualifications. Availability of this scholarship fund is dependent upon an award selection process established by Ball State and its academic departments. For specifics about this scholarship, contact the College of Architecture and Planning at (765) 285-5861. For more information about other scholarships available at Ball State, contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid at (765) 285-5600 or visit www.bsu.edu/finaid.
'Reflections of the Silver Screen' dances into Ball State's University Theatre Iconic music of Hollywood films will be celebrated in "Reflections of the Silver Screen," the season finale for Ball State's Department of Theatre and Dance's Mainstage Subscription Series. Presented by Ball State's Dance Theatre, "Reflections of the Silver Screen" performances will be at 7:30 p.m. April 25-28 at University Theatre. Dances are based on such classic films as "An American in Paris" and "From Russia with Love" as well as a tribute to Fred Astaire and Ginger Roberts. "The dancers have the choreography down so well you can really picture Fred and Ginger on stage," said Lou Ann Young, artistic director and a Ball State assistant professor of dance. The variety of dance styles including jazz, ballet, modern and tap make for an evening of entertainment that has something for everyone, said Young. "This is such an appealing and enchanting show," Young said. "I think the audience is going to love it." This is the second show Ball State Dance Theatre has choreographed based on a theme. Last semester's show was such a success that the department will continue with this trend, she said. Choreographers include Michelle Burger and Nicole Powell, senior dance majors; faculty members Michael Worcel, Doris Ressl, Greg Lund and Audra Sokol, all assistant professors of dance; and Gail Benedict, a guest from the Youth Performing Arts High School in Louisville. The University Theatre Box Office is open from noon to 5 p.m. weekdays and one hour before performances. Tickets are $12.50 for the public, $11.50 for Ball State faculty and staff, $9.50 for senior citizens and $6.50 for students. Call the box office at (765) 2858749 for more information. Speed and science combine for latest Electronic Field Trip Thanks to Ball State, Best Buy Children's Foundation and the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, millions of the country's schoolchildren had the chance to race around the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The virtual race at the Brickyard was part of the April 17 Electronic Field Trip "Going, Going, Faster; The Science of Speed," which showcased the science and engineering that goes into racing. In addition to physics lessons, the EFT gave the students an opportunity to experience the activity that surrounds a day at the races.
Ball State study finds most college students have cell phones, but parents pay bill College students may be hundreds of miles from home and feel independent, but many rely on mom and dad to pay cell phone bills, says a new Ball State University study. A survey of 488 college students by a Ball State anthropology class found that 64 percent of respondents had their cell phones through a family plan, signaling that this age group is still tied to their relatives despite distance between college and home. While the study indicates that new forms of technology are keeping families connected, the data points out that college is a major transition for most students, said James Nyce, an anthropology professor who coordinated the 12-student class. "We look at college students as being independent and living on their own, but they still are tied to their families — socially as well as economically," he said. "College students are making a transition into being adults. College is a halfway point." Many families provide their teen and preteen children with cell phones, paying one bill through what is called a family plan. This trend starts years before students enroll for classes at a university, who see little reason to buy their own cell phones during their college years, Nyce said. Family plans are appealing because they are marketed as the most economical, perceived as the best value, provide parental control, maintains the family unit and allow family members to contact each other quickly during an emergency. Nyce said the study's findings are a startling opposite as compared to Europe. American service providers heavily market family plans with a recent Harris Interactive Survey reporting that 41 percent of all Americans are on family plans. However, European communications firms sell cell phones on an individual basis. "I was very surprised at our findings because I've lived and worked in Europe for more than 20 years," he said. "In Europe, you are basically considered an adult when you purchase a cell phone. In America we are still tied to our families, which I think says we believe that families are very important to us. We want to be connected to each other long after we leave the family home." Students in Nyce's class tracked their college peers throughout spring semester through a hand-held personal digital assistant (PDA) provided by Ball State's Office of Information Technology. The data will be used by Nyce into how wireless devices aid research.

Ball State art students sell pottery to raise money for visiting artists The Clay Guild, a Ball State student art organization, is hosting its spring pottery sale April 25-27 in the Art and Journalism Building Atrium. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., students will sell ceramic bowls, cups, pitchers, vases and other useful items. The proceeds from the fundraiser go directly to students and the visiting artist program. "The visiting art program is critical to the ceramics area and brings exposure and diversity to the students and community," said Ted Neal, assistant professor of art. "Inviting national and local artists, educators and professionals to our campus provides illumination to new concepts, viewpoints and techniques." This year, student sales of ceramics have generated funds for three visiting artists on campus. The sale is open to the public. For more information, contact Neal at (765) 285-5800 or [email protected]
IN THE NEWS Don Cochran, director, Archeological Resources Management Cochran was quoted in a March 14 article in the Daily Clintonian about a circular formation found in Yorktown that may be an ancient Indian burial site. Aside from Mounds State Park, most of East Central Indiana's 300-plus known mounds and enclosures built by the Hopewell-Adena people about 2,000 years ago have been completely or partially destroyed by agriculture, development and artifact hunters. "It's absolutely critical we keep this one. This is one we don't know anything about," Cochran said.

David Coffin, assistant professor of audiology An article in the April 2007 edition of the Hearing Journal quoted Coffin about the search for the fourth-year externship, required for students pursing a doctor of audiology degree. Coffin is very involved in the externship search but expects students to do a lot of the legwork themselves because he wants them to be good at it. "This is about feeling comfortable enough with your knowledge, with your ability, just general self confidence, to pick up the phone and call somebody and say, 'Hey, I'm interested. What can you do for me? This is what I can do for you,'" he said. Jo Ann M. Gora, Ball State President Gora was quoted in an April 11 article on the Web site AutoChannel.com about Ball State's Electronic Field Trip, "Going, Going Faster: The Science of Speed." The 60-minute field trip was broadcast from the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to children in all 50 states, plus Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and Nigeria. It explored Sir Isaac Newton's First Law of Motion, followed IndyCar Series and NASCAR drivers around the track and showed how race cars gain speed and turn corners employing the scientific principles of inertia, friction and downforce. "I can't think of a better venue to get students excited about science and to help explain the laws of motion than the Indianapolis Motor Speedway," Gora said. "Ball State's EFT program gives millions of students a unique learning opportunity without ever leaving the classroom through the use of interactive technology. That's what I call redefining education." The story was also featured on the Web sites IndianapolisMotorSpeedway.com, Motorsport.com, PaddockTalk.com, RacingMilestones.com and WhoWon.com. Ball State's Nascent 500 Business Plan Challenge Ball State's Nascent 500 Business Plan Challenge was mentioned in an April 16 article in The Indianapolis Star.
The challenge gave teams of students 500 seconds in a limousine circling the Indianapolis Motor Speedway to present their business idea to a panel of judges sitting across from them. The top team won $10,000, a quart of milk and a victory lap. Sarah Robbins, instructor of English A March 17 article in the Daily Journal (Johnson County) quoted Robbins about her use of the interactive virtual reality world of Second Life to teach a freshman composition class. When Robbins first started teaching in Second Life last fall, she was one of about a dozen educators exploring the free site as classroom space. Today, hundreds of college and university professors have followed suit. However, according to Robbins, teaching via cyberspace wouldn't be a good fit for every college class. "I could not see this working for a lecture-based course," she said. The story was also featured in the Evening Star (Auburn), the Herald Bulletin (Anderson), the Herald Republican (Angola), the Kokomo Tribune, the News Sun (Kendallville), the Post and Mail (Columbia City), the Reporter Times (Martinsville) and the Times Mail (Bedford). Virginia Ball Center for Creative Inquiry "One Small Project," a student seminar at the Virginia Ball Center for Creative Inquiry, was the subject of an April 12 blog on the Web site CureHunger.org. Students enrolled in the seminar spent the semester studying the issues of homelessness, shelter and waste. They participated in poverty simulations and observed the homeless on the streets of Chicago. Their experiences will be part of a show on Indiana Public Radio.
