South Bend Medical Foundation hosts blood drive on campus
By: MABEL MYERS
Last Thursday Oct. 3, the South Bend Medical Foundation came to campus in their mobile blood bank. This is one of multiple blood drives that the Foundation puts on throughout the school year. The mobile blood bank travels around to campuses and locations around the community.
Kari Frame, the Health and Wellness Center operations director said, “Our community needs up to 125 donations a day to stay at a safe level, and unfortunately, we don’t always see that. IUSB and the other local colleges are a tremendous help to the blood bank and we very much value your efforts and time.”

By: KATE LUCE
After being invited to a gallery visit, Laura Cutler, painting and drawing professor, took the class to the Lubeznik Center for the Arts to attend a talk on the Chicago Imagists, their predecessors and those who took inspiration from them.
“The reason I decided to approach Painting 1 and 2 with the possibility for this field trip was because at first, I got feedback. I presented the idea that the Chicago Imagists show is a really important show for the region and for art education in terms of Northern Indiana, becoming aware of what happened with the art world and artists right out of Chicago … Having that art education and experience is important,” Cutler said.

I began attending IU South Bend in the fall of 2016 after graduating from Clay High School of South Bend. I am currently majoring in Mass Communication with a focus in Journalism.
After gaining experience in radio in television through courses while attending high school, I decided that I wanted a future in journalism.
Although I love writing and creating stories, I leaned more toward radio after having my own show on the only student ran station in South Bend while attending high school. I have always loved reading and creative writing.
