Coach Buysse talks upcoming season

IU South Bend Baseball welcomed new Head Coach Doug Buysse in the fall of 2017.
Coach Buysse’s baseball background starts way back in his high school days, where he played at small town John Glenn high school. He then attended St. Joseph’s College in Rensselaer, Ind, where he played for four years. After graduation, he got his start at coaching with his alma mater. Soon after, he returned to northern Indiana where he coached at multiple different high schools across the Michiana area, including South Bend Riley, John Glenn and South Bend Washington.
In its third season as a team, having a new coach the last three years has been a challenge for returning players at IUSB who have been continuously pushed to adjust to the new styles of teaching.

Students at IU South Bend may recognize the name Yatish J. Joshi as one half of the names that grace a performance hall in Northside Hall. The Louise E. Addicott and Yatish J. Joshi Performance Hall bears the name of the couple who donated $1.2 million from the foundation they started in honor of their daughter, the Georgina Joshi Foundation.
Now, students may also recognize it from their commute to campus, when they might see billboards outlining some of Joshi’s platform as a candidate in the Democratic primary election to represent Indiana’s 2nd Congressional District.

Friends of late IUSB student and publications editor David James will hold a “celebration of life” memorial from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, March 4, at St. Patrick’s Parish Center. Afterwards, the celebration will continue at Fiddler’s Hearth, according to the Daily Titan email bulletin.
James, who, on Jan. 20, passed at age 71, was a passionate and integral figure in the community’s Irish music scene, an activist who, according to the South Bend Tribune, had in recent years “been involved in labor issues, the Civil Rights Heritage Center and the local LGBTQ community, and ran for the South Bend school board in 2016.”
